KISS MEJ "Kim me !" said an artless child, Tossing her sunny curls asido, And clasping then, with dimpled arms, A youthful mother's neck with pride : "Ki me !" she said, "my mother, ou," Al though unseen electrio chords V'ere charged with eloquence of lore, Which might not breath or spouk in words. "Kiss me '." tald a maiden fair, At she twined, with graceful hand, Her parting lover's raven locks, Ere he sped to a far off land i "Kiss me!" she said in sweetest tone, "And leave thy truest love with me ; My heart shall blend its own with thino And bring them both unchanged to thee." ''Kiss me ?" said a dying boy, Al a tear strayed down his pallid cheek, And nearer drew his sitster's check, To catch that voico so soft and weak ; "Kits me!" be said. "I'm dying now, As fade the sunset hues of even; But, sister, I n ill watch for thoe, And meet thee at the gates of Ileaveu !"

But as he pondered upon the cir cumstances by which his mind had been brought to that conclusion, ho perceived that they were not only not absolutely con clusive of guilt, but admitted of an expla nation entirely compatible with innocence, fue possession ot his father's sleeve-buttons for so long a time as he stated iu Mo bile thathe hud owned them, though, with out doubt, a highly criminative circum stance, if sustained by other and more positive proof, was not alone, or even hen aided by slightly corroborative evi dence, sufficient to prove his participation in the murder, since they might, original y. have come to him by lawful transfer Jfoin another, and have lain unobserved, ojr accident, in a corner of his valise or Jfunk for years, or they might even have wen retained, by design, in his possession, w other and very different purposes, than edehborate suppression of a means of proof against himself. Tho mutilated fin ger might be a mere coiucidenco, owing it force, as a damnatory proof, to the bo Jef, already engendered in his mind, by J unexplained possession of the buttons lot thirty years or more, that Orme was m of the murderers of his faiher, At'lie u events, a doubt as to the guilt of Orme 1 "'gilt be extracted from the criminative ejfeumstances thus far developed, and that enough to determine a person so con- ! juentious and just as A.

A ca.se bus been brought boforo the Police Court late ly, at Speryer, in Germany, of which there is scarcely a rival in the police records of any country. A weaver residing in the above mentioned town, claimed tobe a cap ital marksman, and to try his best, he went to his garden accompanied by his son, 8 boy of about twelve years, and placed a potato on his head, and then firing at him at a distance of twenty rods, hit the po tato, splitting it in tho. Tho neighbors to wtiom bo boasted about his skill in handling fire-arms, would notblipv him and to convince them, he made antioint. ments to repeat his master-shot. Mean while it grew dttbk, and when he arrived at the spot, it became so dark that the boy had to hold a lantern. He fired again with the same success, but at tlm kmn time touching the boy's cap. When the above mentioned deeds came to tho know ledge of the authorities, ho was summon ed to appear before tho Court, and being questioned as to his rationality, it was as certained that he was at intervals partly deranged.
