For the Columbia Spy
Most eloquent are ye, oh! gentle flowers,
With your lair heads in meekness lifted up,
As dye sent to Heaven's own sinless bowers
An incense offering from each perfumed cup
WHITE LILY ! with thy graceful stems all bending
death the light burden of thy snowy bells;
Breathes there no spirit in the sigh ascending
From the still chambers of thy fragrant cells.
Bum Viourr ! in the dun recesses hiding,
Of some lone glen or leafy forest nook ;
Where, by its mossy banks in music gliding,
Murmurs its happy song the chiming brook—
The quiet stars in the still summer even,
The low winds whispering to the waving tree,
The silver dews that silent steal from Heaven—
Bear they no holy messages to thee ?
WHITE Rosa! that o'er the grave of the departed
Strewest thy fragrant petals, knowest thou
Aught Of the anguish of the broken- hearted—
The stricken one who weeps beside thee now?
NIGHT FLOWERS ! that round our homes your watch arc
Like guardian spirits when the day is done
See so ito VI.IOIIS while the world is sleeping.
Too bright for mortal eyes to look upon?
Lurk the \Sitti rays in every bud and blossom,
Still, as old stories tell they lork'd of yore;
Sleeping in fragrance on the liosifi bosom—
Riding the .InsmiNn or her lioney'd store!
Have )e no place in ?leaven, ye lovely things,—
Almost for earth too stainless and too lair?
Bloom ye unfatling by the gushing springs
That ceaseless now front life's own fountain there?
• • • •
Ye huve a blessed mission! ice ye call
Sweet flint:ie.' 1010 har where er ye come,—
Gracing the prowl palm/ales marble
:lilict.blAng rich beauty round the poor man's home
Something of !leaven's own purity ye bring,
E'en to this dark and sin-stained earth of ours;
And the true heart bath a warm welcoming
For your pure loveliness, 0 ! gentle Flowers.
Columbia, April, 1950.
For the Columbia Spy
I love to stand upon the shore,
And gaze upon the sea;
For then those days Fll neer see more,
Lt thought return to me.
Among the woods I love to roam,
And hear the weeping wind;
For then the thoughts of friends and home
Come rushing on my mind.
Upon the 'tins I love to stray;
I ut often, when a child,
On errand sent, at break of day,
I crowed the Leather wild.
I love to hear the mountain stream,
And on its bank to he ;
For there, on memory's golden beam,
The past comes mournful by!
I love the (Misled fields and gay ;.
I love the winter's gloom;
For saereiPs his unhonored clay—
I love the martyr's tomb!
I love the brave—l love the true—
] lave the great and free;
A friend to all whose friends are few—
How many arc loved by me.
Columbia, April, ISSO.
For the Columbia Rm..
Thine is a true and noble soul!
Spurning the given of base control ;
A soul whose onward luring star,
Gleams ever bright from climes afar!
The mock, the scorn and libel low,
Thy noble mind could never know;
While guilt and treachery's tinsel form,
Shrink 'neath untie eye's indignant scorn,—
And knaves, with hypocritie face,
Before thee feel their deep disgrace ;
For honor's signers placed upon
Thy manly brow, thou loved one—
ln whom the social virtues blend,
Of neighbor,citizen and friend.
Columbia, April, 1 , 50. W. B. N.
Father is a word with me, wondrously influen
tial, nor can I think of it without mingled rever
ence and finial affection. "As a father pitieth his
children," says David, and we feel the pity ha de
scribes. " Dear, ye children, the instruction of a
father," says Solomon—and we acknowledge the
authority with reverence. " I will arise and go to
my father," said the poor prodigal—and his words
thrill through the heart. "My father ! my father!
the chariots of Israel, and the horsemen thereof,"
cried Elisha, when Elijah went up by a whirlwind
into heaven ; and the exclamation arrests our very
souls. Few who have felt the kindly, correcting
and fostering influence of a father, but must feel,
at the name, somewhat in the way I have described.
And yet the greatest utility of a father, lives in
what wo may call "the preventive service"—not
letting the son have his own way, nor his own
The correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot,
speaking of the National Inielligenter, says that
the outstand;nz debts duo that establishment aro
eatimated at $400,000. On this, the Boston Iles•
ald remarks :
" We doubt not there are other subscription pa.
pyre, the proprietors of which can toll as sad a sto•
ry as the one above. The lose of every paper of
the kind is no Ices on an average than twenty per
cent. per annum. We know an instance which
occurred in this city, a few years ago, where an
old establishment was compelled to fail, at the same
time its outstanding debts were not less than $16..
000, not one quarter of which was ever collected by
the assignees. The late Alsyor Russel once at.
tempted to draw up his subscribers to paying point
—some of them were indebted to him for twenty
years subscription. One of these ordered him to
stop the paper. " I'll be hanged," said he, "if J
take a paper from any man who duns me to pay
for it:" The old fellow had read the paper for
twenty years without paying a cent to its propri.
Carob yetshechi, a horse dealer, on the third
night after his departure from Vienna, stopped at
a quiet Inn, situated on the suburbs of a small
town. He had never been there before, but the
House was comfortable, and the appearance of the
people about it respectable. Having first attended
to his tired horse, he sat down to supper with his
host and family. During the meal he was asked
whence he came, and when he had said from Vicn.
no, all present were anxious to hear the news.
The host-then asked him what business had car
ried him to Vienna. He told them he had been
there to sell some of the best horses that were ta
ken to th6 „ market. When he heard this, the
host cast a glance at one of the men of the family
who seemed to be his son, which the dealer scarce
ly observed then, but which he had reason to re.
call after Weeds. When supper was finished,sthe
fatigued traveller requested to be shown to his bed.
The host himself took up a light, and conducted
him across a little yard at the back of the house
to a detached building, which contained two rooms,
tolerably decent for a Hungarian hotel. In the
inner of these:rooms was a bed, and here the host
left him to himself. As the dealer threw off his
jacket and loosened the girdle round his waist
where his money was deposited, lie thought he
might as well see if it was . all safe. Accordingly
he drew out an old leather purse that contained
his gold, and then a. tattered parchment pocket
book, that contained the Austrian hank notes, and
finding that loth were quite right, lie laid them
under his bolster, extinguished the light and threw
himself on the bed, thanking God that lie had onr
ried him thus far homeward in safety. He had
no misgiving as to the character of the people he
had fallen amongst to hinder his repose, and the
poor dealer was soon enjoying a profound and hap.
py sleep. •
He might have been in this state of beatitude
an hour, when lie was disturbed by a noise like
that of an opening window, and by a sudden rush
of cool night-air—on raising himself on the bed,
he saw peering through an open window, which
was almost immediately above the bed, the head
and shoulders of a man who was evidently attempt
in to make his ingress into the room that way.
As the terrified dealer looked, the intruding figure
was withdrawn, and he heard a rumbling noise,
and the voices of several. men,as he thought, close
thej" vrnidcrw. The snowt. alr.4afal apprchen.
'ions, the more horrible as they were so sudden,
now agitated the traveller, who scarcely knowing
what he did but utterly-despairing of preserving
his life threw himself under the bed,
He had scarcely done so, when the hard breath.
ing of a man was heard at his open window, and
the next moment a robust fellow dropped into the
room, and after staggering ,across it, groped his
way by the wall to the bed. Fear had almost de.
prived the horses-dealer of his senses, but yet he
perceived that the iota oder, whosoever lie might
be, was drunk. There was, however, alight corn.
fort in this, for he might only have swallowed
wine to make him the more desperate, and the
traveller was convinced that he had heard the
voices of other men without, who might climb into
the room to assist their brother villain, in ease any
resistance should be made. his astonishment,
however, was great and reviving when he heard
the fellow throw off his jacket upon the floor and
then toss himself upon the bed under which he lay.
Terror, however, had taken too firm a hold of
Vetslicehi to he shaken off at once; his ideas were
too confused to permit his imagining any other
motive fur such a midnight intrusion, on an nn.
armed man with property about him, save that of
a robbery and assassination, and he lay quiet
where he was until he heard the fellow snoring
with all the sonorousness of a drunkard. Then,
indeed, ho would have left his hiding place and
gone to rouse the people in the Inn to get another
resting-place instead of the bed of which he had
been dispossessed in so singular a manner, but
just as lie came to this resolution he heard the
door of tire outer room open—then stealthy steps
across it—then the door of the very room in which
he was in softly opened, and two men one of whom
was the host and the other his sort appeared on its
threshold. 'Leave the light where it is,' whispered
the host, 'or it may disturb him and give us trouble.'
There is no fear of that,' said the younger man
also in a low whisper, ' we are two to one ; lie has
nothing but a little knife about him—he is dead
asleep too—hear how lie snores!' Do my bid.
I ding,' said the man sternly—' would you have him
wake and rouse the neighborhood with his screams 7'
As it was, the horror-stricken dealer under the
bed could scarcely suppress a shriek—but he saw
then the eon left the light in the outer room, and
then pulling the door partially after them, to screen
the rays of the lamp from the bed lie saw the two
murderers glide to the bed side, and then heard a
rustling motion as of arms descending on the bed
clothes, and a hissing, and then a grating sound
that turned his soul sick ; for he knew it came
from knives or daggers penetrating to the heart or
vitals of a human being like himself, and only a
few inches above his own body. This was followed
b y one sudden and violent start on the bed accom.
I ponied by a moan. Then the bed which was a
low one, was bent down by increase of weight,
caused by one or both the murderers throwing
themselves upon it, until it pressed on the body of
the traveller. There was an awful silence of a
moment or two, and theta the host said He is
finished—l have cut him across the throat—take
the money, I saw him put it Tinder the bolster.'
I have it—here it is,' said the son; a purse and a
pocket book.'
Vetsheelii was then relieved from the weight
which had pressed upon him almost to suffocation
—and the assassins, who seemed to tremble as
they went, ran out of the room, took up the light,
and disappeared altogether from the apartment.
No sooner were they fairly gone than the poor
dealer crawled from under the bed, took one des
perate leap through the window by which he had
secnthe unfortunate wretch enter who had evidently
been murdered in his stead. He ran with all his
horrid story and miraculous escape to the night
watch. The night-watch conducted him to the
burgomaster, who was soon aroused from his sleep,
and acquainted him with all that had happened.
In less than half an hour from the time of his
escape from it, the horse dealer was at the mur
derous inn with the magistrate and a strong force
of horror-stricken inhabitants and the night-watch,
who had all run thither in the greatest silence.
In the house all seemed as still as death, but as
the party wont round to the stables they heard
noise—cautioning the rest to surround the inn and
the out-houses„ the magistrate with the traveller
and some half dozen armed men ran to the stable
door, this they opened and found within the host
and his son digging a grave.
The first figure that met the eyes of the mur
derers was that of the traveller. The effect of this
on their guilty souls was too much to be borne—
they shrieked and threw themselves on the ground :
and although they were immediately seized by
hard griping hands of real flesh and blood, and
heard the voices of the magistrate and their friends
and neighbors denouncing them as murderers, it
was some time crc they could believe that the fig
ure of the traveller that stood among them was
other than a spirit. It was the hardier villian, the
father, who, on the stranger's voice continuing in
eollVnrcation lin thee magistrate, first gained suf
ficient command over liiin , elf to raise his face from
the earth. He saw the stranger still pale and
haggard but evidently unhurt. The murderer's
head spun round confusedly—but at length rising,
he said to those who held him —• Let me see that
stranger nearer—let me touch him—only let me
touch him 1' The poor horse dealer drew back in
horror and disgust, 'You may satisfy hint in this,'
said the magistrate—' he is unarmed and unnerved,
and we arc here to prevent him doing you harm.'
On this the traveller let the host approach him,
and pass his hand over his person, which when he
had done the villain exclaimed—'l am no murderer!'
Who says I am a murderer ?' "flat shall we ace
anon,' said the traveller, who led the way to the
detached apartment, followed by the magistrate by
the two prisoners, and all the party, which had
collected in the stable on hearing what passed
Both father and son walked with considerable
confidence into the room, but when they saw by
the lamps the night-watch and others held over it
thatthere was a body covered with blood lying upon
the bed they cried out, How is this ! who is
this and rushed together to tlee bed-side. The
lights were lowered, their rays fell full upon the
ghastly face and bleeding throat of a young man.
At the sight, the younger of the murderers turned
his head, and swooned in silence—but the father
uttering a shriek so loud, so awful, that one of the
eternally damned alone might equal its effect,
threw himself on the gashed and bloody body and
murmuring in his throat, •My son! I have killed
mine own son!' also found a temporary relief front
the horrors of his situation in insensibility.
The next minute the wretched hostess, lobo was
innocent of all that had passed, and who l:ncw not
tilts was the wife of a. murderer, the mother
all murderer, and the mother of a murdered son,
of a son killed by a brother and a father, ran to
the apartment and would have increased tenfold
its already insupportable horrors by entering there,
had she not been prevented by the honest towns
people. She had been roused from sleep by the
noise made in the stable, and then by her husband's
shriek, and was now herself shrieking atuifrantic,
carried back to the inn by main force. The two
murderers were forthwith bound and carried to
the town jail, where on examination, which was
made the next morning, it appeared from evidence ,
that the person murdered was the youngest son of I
the landlord of the inn, and a person never suspect
ed of any crime more serious than habitual drunk
enness—that instead of being in bed as his father
and brother had believed him he had stolen out of
the house, and joined a party of carousers in the
town—these boon companions all appeared in evi
dence—and two of them deposed that the deceased
being exceedingly intoxicated, and dreading his
father's wrath should he rouse the house in such a
state, and at that late hour had said to them that
he would get through the window into the little
detached apartment and sleep there, as he had often
done before and that they too accompanied him to
climb to the window. The deceased had reached
the window once, and as they thought would have
got safe through it but drunk and unsteady as he
was, he slipped back—they had then some diffi
culty in inducing him to climb again, for in the
caprice of intoxication, he said he would rather go
and sleep with one of his comrades. However he
had at last effected his entrance—and they, his
two comrades, had gone to their respective homes.
The wretched criminals were executed a few
weeks after the commission of the crime. They
had confessed every thing, and restored to Vet
shechi the gold and paper money they lead con
cealed, and which had led them to do a deed so
much more atrocious titan even they had antici
