Hew down the woods and till the soil,
And win thereby *a prouder fame
Than follows king or warrior's name.
Tho working men, whate'er their task,
To carve the stone or bear the hod—
They wear upon their honest brows
The royal stamp and seal of God?
And brighter are tho drops of sweat
Than diamonds in a coronet!

Who rear the cities of the plain,
Who dig the mines and build the ships,
And drive the commerce on the main,
God bless them I fur their swarthy hands
Have wrought the glory of our lands.
Fairy Story for Little Ones.
Prince Procrastination was always
about to seek his fortune, but then he
was long in starting. So at last his
fairy godmother said to him :
"1 have planted a rose in the gar
den. It will bear only one bud. If
you pick this. bud before it is fairly
opened, you will find in it a dewdrop.
But this dewdrop will never melt, and
isms hard as steel. In fact, it is a fairy
mirror, and, if you will look in it, you
will see three chances for winning
your fortune." - -
The Prince who was very anxious
about his fo4unc, Thaiiked his' god
mother warmly, and
. did little else but
watch the rose till; it tjudcled. Just
before the bud had opened, he plubked
it, and found' in it the. deWdrop, as
hard as steel; and looking in this curi
ous mirror, ho saw,a.castlo ; and over
the gate of, this castle burig,a banner ;
and on the banner was ,written : "Who
grasps me first shall lead: the king's
armies." , „
"This ie 'easily done," •said the
Prince; "but ,where is this castle ?"
again he42.aw the word q;liansimia."
"Where Can llansonia be?" thought
the Prince. "I must buy an atlas. I
will go to town to-day and buy ono."
But thdt. day it happened that the
Prince•had a headache. So he said :
"I will go the next day.".
So the nexi, ilay he went; but just
as he was going into tho book store,
ho saw a man with some tiny white
puppies. So ho said : •"I will go and
look at the puppies, and slop for tho
atlas on my way back." But when
ho got back to the book•store, they
had just soTiftbe last atlas;
"hover mind," said the man, "we
will send for a new lot."
So they sent for a new lot and as
soon as they arrived, the Prince found
the country of Mansonia, and started
off to find the banner. lie had been
so long however, that I am sorry to
say that, just as ho reached the tower
ho saw another Prince helping himself
to the banner.
"Confound it!" cried the Prince in a
rage, "this comes of having atlases!
That book seller ought to be hanged !
Never mind. I have two more chan
So he looked in the dewdrop mir
ror again, and this time ho saw a pear
hanging in his own garden.
'Pick that pear," was written in
the glass, "as soon as it is ripe, and
you shall bo wise."
"This is a better gift than the oth
er," thought the Prince, and every
day he used to go and look at the
pear, and wonder how it would taste,
and why it could make him wise, till
it had grown so full and rich that
there couldlio longer be any doubt of
itripeness. Then he brought out a
leader, and prepared to climb the
tree; but just as he was going up ho
saw a bee fighting with a spider. Ho
was so curious to learn what they
were fighting about, that ho went to
When ho came back he met his lit

"Oh, Pro! you ought to go up and

"Why, the ono at the very top—

So he looked in the mirror again,
and this time he saw only a lino of
writing, and this is what it said :
"Catch the third fish from the eea,
And you yoc may lucky be."
"Well, there is no such , hurry about
this, anyhow," thought the Prince,-- , -
"I can' catch threo fishes any , time,
However, I will go to-morrow."
But to-morrow the Prince's cousin
came to see him;
and on the next
day ho sprained his ankle ; ar.d on

Sing Away Your Grief.
Henry Ward Beecher gives the
following excellent advice:
We can sing away our cares easier
than we can reason thorn away. The
birds are the earliest to sing in the
morning; the birds are more without
care than anything else I know of.=
Sing in the evening. Singing is the
last thing the robins do. When 14ey
have done their daily work—When
they have flown their last flight, and
picked up their last morsel of food,
and cleansed their bills on a napkin of
a bough, and on a top twig, they sing
one song of praise. I know they sleep
sweeter for it. They dream music;
for sometimes in the night they break
forth in singing, and stop suddenly af
ter the first note, startled by their
own voice. 0, that we might sing
evening and morning, and let song
touch sung all the way through. As I
was returning from the country the
other evening between 6 and 7 o'clock,
bearing a basket of flowers, I met a
man that was apparently the tender of
a mason. He looked brick and mor
tal all over! * He had worked the en
tire day, and he had the appearance of
a man that would not be afraid of
work. He was walking on with a
light step, and singing to himself as
he passed down the street, though he
had been working the whole day, and
nearly the whole week. Were it not
that my good thoughts always come
too late, I should have given him a
large allotment of my flowers. If ho
had not been out - of sight when the
idea occurred to me, I should have
hailed him, and said, "Have you work
ed all day ?"' "Of coarse I have"' he
would have said. "Are you singing ?"
"Of course I am." "Then take the
flower 3 home andrgive them to your
wife, and tell her what a blessing she
has in you."
0, that we could put songs under
our burdens! 0, that we could extract
the sense of sorrow by song ! Then
tubes things would not poison so much.
Sing in'the house. Teach your children
to sing. When troubles come, go •at
them with songs. When griefs arise,
sing them down. Lift the voice of
praise against cares. Praise God by
singing; that will lift, you above trials
of every sort. Attempt it. They sing
in heaven , ; and among God's people
uptin earth, song is the appropriate
language of Christian feeling.
WANTED—AN iIoNEsT, INDUSTRIOUS
130 y.—We lately saw an advertise
ment headed as above. It conveys to
evefkliby animpre"ssive moral lesson.
"An honest, industrious boy" is al
ways wanted. Ito will be sought for;
his services will be in demand; he
will be spoken of in terms of high
commendation ; ho will always have
a home; he wil grow up to be a man
of known worth and established chur
-1 actor. •
Ho will be wanted. The merchant
will want him for salesman or clerk;
tho master mechanic will want him
for apprentice or journeyman ; those
with a job to let will want him foi
contractor; patients will want him
for a doctor; religious congregations,
for a pastor; parents, for a teacher of
their children ; and the people, for an
He will be wanted. Townsmen
will want him for a citizen, acquain
tances as a neighbor, neighbors as a
friend, families as a visitor, the world
as an acquaintance ; nay, girls will

How THE PARSON GOT , EXCITED.—A
few: years since, near the city of,F—,
in Connecticut, lived and preached old
Parson P., who was excitable and near
sighted. One day be had been in the
city : with , his horse, and among his
purchases was a barrel of flour, the
head of which was partially out. • •
On the way home the old man was
overtaken and passed by a fast young
man, driving a horse and putting on
much airs. Now, the parson's horse
was usually a quiet, steady -going ani
imal enough, but he couldn't stand
that sort of thing; so he started after
him of the first order, in good earnest.
The jolting of the wagon at length jar
red the head completely off the barrel,
and the strong wind that was blowing
directly after the parson, blew the
flour all over him and the horse. At
last the fast young man was left, and
the village reached; butithe speed of
his horse was not checked.
In driving through a street to reach
his home, he came in contact with one
of his deacons, who was naturally sur
prised to see his minister driving at
such a pace, and signaled him to stop.
"Why Parson P—," said he, "what
on earth is the matter? You seem

Letter from Thaddeus Stevens,
The following letter from Hon. Thad
Stevens to one of the Pennsylvania
delegates to the Chicago Convention
sufficiently explains itself
WASHINGTON, March 26, 1868.
My Dear Sir: -1 received your letter
of the 24th inst., this morning, and am
glad you intend to be at Chicago per
sonally. If your constituents and
mine have indicated a preference for
Vice President, as I rather think they
have, from their vote, I should deem it
your duty, as a matter of personal fi
delity, to begin by voting for that per
son, whether ho is a friend of mine or
not. No man seems to, me justified
in violating the wishes of his consti
tuents to please any other person, but
' if the person' thus indicated as their
first choice should fail of a probability
of election, or gradually decline, then,
if 1 were there, or my wishes were to
bo consulted, I should use all my" at
forts in favor of B. P. Wade. Ho is a
true man, in whom you and I and
every radical man can confide, and
you will find that the country, as well
as our particular- friends, will profit by
his success. I wish you would show
'this letter to your colleagues. I shall
be kept from the Convention, but de.
sire to see an honest man placed in
that position of great contingent re
.A's to the candidate for
the Presidency; I presume you all
agree that none-other than Gin. Grant
is to be thought of. Honest, firm, and
well-indoctrinated in principle, with. ,
out ostentation and without pride, I
do not well see how . a better selection
can be 'Made. His jiidgme:nt ofiimon
is iso sound that-I have tuff faith that
he will call around -hi m the ablest and
purest men of the „nation. With
Grant and Wade to guide and defend
us, this nation; in four year will have
acquired a prosperity which will -be
the wonder of the world. Universal,
freedom maintained by universal suf
frage, on this continent f onnnot fail to
have that effect. Very .respectfully

• TUADDEpS, STEVENS. •
To It. J. HOUSTON, Esq.., Lancaster,
GENERAL GRANT AND TEMPERANCE:—
The following is from the New York
Sun. Mr. Dana, the editor, was with
Gen. Grant, in the field, nearly two
years, and knows whereof he writes :
"Gon. Grant has been accused of in
temperance. The , Democrats fight
him with talk about his alleged .bad
habit, just as the rebels fought him
with powder and ball in war; but the
case is sot, right in a Hale speech
which tlie'Hon. W. E. Dodge made on
Thursday evening. • Mr. Dodge said
that he had just been in Washington,
and had a long-interview with Gen.
Grant, mid, continued he, "I left him
with the conviction that neither we
nor the friends of temperance have
any cause for anxiety in this respect."
Mr. Dodge is President of tho Nation
al Temperance Society, and no one
can be more hostile to everything ap
proaching intemperate habits in a pub
lic man. The truth is that the prac
tice of • Gen. Grant is total abstinence.
In camp he—almost alone, among all
the prominent officers of- the army—
noVer tolerated liquor or wino either
atlis table or about his tent. Fatigu
ing marches and the excitement and
exhaustion of battles did net make
him break over his rule,
not to touch
or take anything alcoholic. Again and
again we have seen wino offered him
at public and private dinners, only to
be steadily-refused. We are assured
that now in time of peace, and in the
society of Washington, he still main
tains the same custom. His enemies
must invent some other story. The
people will never believe that General
Grant is a drunkard; and if, from not
personally knowing Grant, they are
not sure of the facts, thew will answer
as President Lincoln did, "Lot me
know what kind of whisky Grant
drinks, and I will send a barrel to
every one of our generals.'"
NOT SO BAD AS HE TIIOI/011T.—The
following story is told of a gallant na
val officer :—Twenty or thirty years
ago, when missionary enterprise was
in its infancy among the islands of
the South sea, Captain Summers an.
chored his sloop of-war off one of the
Marquesas._ The' next morning, - he'
saw au American flag on the beach,
Union down: This excited him fear
fully, of course, and he sent off a boat:
at once to inquire into the matter.—
Presently, the boat returned, bringing
with it a grave looking missionary.--!
The Captain's anxiety ran high. He
"What's the trouble out there,
"Well, I am grieved to say, sir,"
said the missionary, "that the natives
have been interrupting our sacerdotal

had been doing?"
"It pains me, sir, to say they have
been interrupting our sacerdotal exer.
"Interrupting your—your—h-11 !
Man them starboard guns I Stand by,
now, to give 'em the whole battery !"
The astonished clergyman hastened
to protest 'against such excessively
rigorous measures, and finally succeed
ed in making the old tar understand
that the natives had only been guilty of
breaking up a prayer meeting.
"Oh, devil take it, man," said the
Captain, "is that all? I thought you
meant that they'd stopped your grog !"

you say. What did you gain by it 7"
asked a gentleman of a prisoner.
"Single blessedness, sir, he replied,
