'UY Or
Eyes us
Right in the track where Sherman
Ploughed his red furrow,
Out of the narrow cabin,
Up from the cellar's burrow,
Gathered the little black people,
Where, beside their Northern teacher,
Stood the soldier, Howard.
He listened and beard the children
Of the poor and long enslaved,
Reading the words of Jesus,
singing the songs of David.
Behold ! the dumb lips speaking,
The blind eyes seeing !
Bones of the Prophet's vision
Warmed into being.
Transformed he saw them passing
Their new life's portal ;
Almost it seemed the mortal
Put on the immortal.
No more with the beasts of burden,
No more with stone and clod,
But crowned with glory and honor
In the image of God.
There was the human chattel
In manhood taking ;
There, in each dark brouze statue,
A soul was waking !
The man of many battles,
With tears his eyelids pressing,
Stretched over those dusky foreheads
His one-armed blessing.
And he said : "Who hears can never
Fear for or doubt you ;
What shall I tell tbe'ehildren
Up North about you ?"
Then ran round a whisper, a murmer,
Some answer devising ;
And a little boy stood up : " Massa,
Tell 'em we're rising !"
0 black boy of Atlanta !
Bat half wan spoken :
The slave's chain and the master's
Alike are broken.
The one curse of the races
Held both iu tether :
They are rising, all are rising,
The black and white together !
0 brave men and fair women
11l comes of hate and scorning ;
Shall the dark faces only
Be turned to morning ?
Make time your sole avenger,
All healing, all redressing ;
Meet Fate half way, and Make it
A joy and blessing.
"I'll keep a light in the window, :Sandy,
till ye come back."
"Never mind, mother," said the boy,
standing at the door in an uncertain
slouching kind of a way, "I—l might be
"Ws dark along the lane," said the
mother, "and a bit of candle light would
be ill-spared, if you got a tumble by it.
I'll keep the candle hunting till you come
She was a very hard h attired Scotch
woman, healthy and active, though no
longer young, and, as she talked, she
worked on, ironing the linen she had
washed and starched, and heaping it like
a snow drift, in a great basket beside her.
Four other children were in the room,
girls and boys, too young to do much for I
themselves, yet Sandy was eighteen, a tall, I
handsome fellow, with ripe lips and cheeks
and dancing eyes. "If Sandy only would
have been a little steadier," the mother
often sighed; but to be "steady," was not
Sandy's forte. On, ever and always, to
the river side, where the other lounging
boys watched the boats come in at the
ferry, or plunged stones into the water for
the village pet, the great Newfoundland,
"whiskers," by name, to "fetch." No
harm in that, the mother thought, if the
boys had all been good; but evenings at
the store, they were worse; and the decent
washer-woman shivered as she listened for
her boy's home-coming steps at night, lest
some day he should copy Squire Peeler's
boys and drink too much.
Peeler's boys were her terror, though
they were the sons of the richest man in
the neighborhood. But now, as Sg.ndy
stood in the door, so tall and fair, and
bony, the mother's heart grow light.
"He'd be sure to settle down and help her
-with the bairns some day," she said. N 044
doubt of that; he was a bit of a boy now;
and she ironed on until her work was done,
and then put the candle into the window
to light the boy along the lane at his home
coming. The candle burnt itself away
and sunk into the socket, and the very
wick smouldered out, leaving only smell
and smoke behind it, and still lit no Sandy
across the threshold of his humble home,
for that night Sandy ran away.
The life at home was too hard for him.
The restraints of his mother's watchful
eye irked him. To do his own will, to
have his own way, Sandy left his own
home behind him, but he had grace
enough to remember with a pang, these
words ;
" I'll keep the light burning till ye come
back, Sandy."
Some vague hope of being rich, and do•
in great things for those at home, was
in his mind, or he believed so, but a sel
fish desire to escape the drudgery and the
restraint gave the actual impulse to hht
steps. lie shipped as a sailor the next
day, and began in earnest a wild and
reckless sailor's life.
It suited him. Now and then when
the storm was at its height, and far in the
distance the lamps of some tall light-house
shone like a great red eye, the tiny flicker
of that window sheltered candle would
dawn upon his memory, and he would
hear his mother's •;6116')ittyllig, "I'll keep
it bunting till ye come, Sandy." Now
a4d then amidst the yarns and songs of
the fbrecastle merry making, he heard the
crooming of the tunes she used to sing
over her work—eld Scottish ballads, or
perhaps some hymn handed down from
the time when the old Conveuantors wor
shipped God and defied man amongst the
purple heather. They never lured him
home to her though.
The years rolled on, and even this one
sting of conscienet ceased its paining. In
those days there wei e no such beings as
sober sailors, nor captains of temperance
principles. Hard drinkers were most old
salts, and most young ones. ' Sandy drank
with the rest. lie grew broad and stout.
His cheeks were bronzed, his light hair
changed its tint, his voice grew deep and
coarse. He was in no way a good man,
but be was a good sailor. As the years
passed, he came to be au oilicer—first mate
of the Agamemnon. Ills pockets were
full enough for all his purposes. The sea
was better than land to him, and when on
shore he led that sort of life that drives
the thought of mother from men's very
souls. Ile had friends, at least he thought
so, men who knew when his pay jingled
in his pocket, women who did not blush
to receive the lavish gifts of the jovial
sailor. Ile Was not niggardly, nay—once
he emptied his last remaining dollar into
a beggar's hand. It happened to be a
prettyish beggar girl, and he had gone on
a year's cruise, shoeless, and during ship
wreck, or when the Agamemnon found a
sister vessel in distress, Sandy was bravest
of the brave; but he had never been gen
erous enough nor brave enough to go
back to the eastward seaport, where his
mother had left the candle burning for
him in the window—never, never.
Five years were gone, and ten, and fif
teen and twenty. A man nearly forty
years of age stood in Sandy Cameron's
shoes—a man who led the wildest life un
der the moon ashore, a man to whom fiery
brandy was as water to a child; a man
who remembered God only in his oaths;
when the Agamemnon came after a long
and stormy voyage just within sight of
the coast—within sight of its light house,
at least, for in the darkness of a stormy
night nothing else was visible. Battered
with storms already, bruised by the waves,
wounded by rocks, still the Agamemnon
fought her way hotneward; by the morrow
eve sound earth would be beneath the feet
of the wave weary mariners—for once at
least all longed for it, even wild Sandy
eimorou. He was glad. Ile watched
the towering lamps with joy, and swore
that they were pleasant sights. -Before
he slept he stood awhile leaning over the
tatrrail, smoking and thinking, if he ever
thought. It was an evil lingering for the
Agamenmon. A spark from the cigar
held in unsteady bands, regarded by eyes
no brighter for recent draughts of brandy,
makes its way somehow, wind-borne, or
demon-borne, into the places where the
cargo of the vessel had been stored away,
and at the dead of night they of the mid
watch saw stealing through the planks
beneath them red and yellow tongues of
flame. The vessel was on tire!
"Fire! tire! tirel" the word rang its
way to heaven, shouted by every tongue
on hoard.
The scene that followed beggars desta p
don. None who lived to remember could
ever forget it. There Wati no hope from
the first, none, save in the ,boats. They
were tilled at once. Who could tiwget it?
Oh, who can forget it? The old Mall
pointing to the lights on shore and crying:
" I wanted to see the children once be
fore I died."
The captain was deathly pale, showing
that strange bravery which sailors only
possess at such a time.
Changing from a dictatori ii old hard
drinker to to very hero; clinging in roman
tic fondness to his ship; and while he did
his best for every soul on board, forgetting
himself, and vowing to sink with her.
The young passenger and his bride—
she clinging to him; the mother with her
babe bound to her breast—praying on her
knees amid the tumult. The orphan
going home to Ats grand parents, w
stricken, and yet scarcely conscious o
danger. Amidst them all, giganpie in his
strength, sobered at last by the awful
scenes around him, toiled Sandy Cameron.
They remembered him well whose lives he
saved. The bronzed man with light hair,
and the grip of Hercules. So all the boats
and rafts—some to live, some to die—were
all afloat. All gone into the darkness,
and struggling forms had vanished from
the waves, and alone together, the dames
approaching them like dancing , demons,
stood old Captain Oaks and his first mate,
Sandy Cameron.
"Captain," said Sandy, " it's most
"Aye, aye, lad," said the captain,
"Give us your fist. We've sailed togeth
er a good while now. We seem bound fir
the long voyage now. Lord help us,
" There's a chance yet, maybe," said
the first mate. "Try for it, captain."
"No," said the sailor, " I go with her.
No wife waits for me, no child. She's my
wife and children, all in one. Try you, I
go down with her."
That was the last that Sandy Cameron
saw or heard of the captain. A rush rind
roar from below, where spirits were stor
ed, •ended the words. Then came blind
ness and silence and the time passed for
* * 1* • *
At last there was% sound again. The
sound of waters. bight, the red lamps of
the :light, house. Feeling, that the wet
sand against his face. Some strange pro
vidence had saved Sandy Cameron's life.
Bruiiied and weak ? he lay motionless for a
long while. Bruised and weak, still he
staggered to his feet at last.
Above him—bis sailor eye used to re
member such things—towered well known
rocks kissed by the struggling zuoonlight.
The sea bad flung hint into the arms of
him who shall have borne the battle, and
futon , and hie orphan, to do all which may
and cherish a just and a lasting peace

his native seaport; and up above, a man
wandering along the shore, latching the
light house signals, perhaps, was singing
a Methodist hymn,
"There's a light in the window for thee
There's a light in a window for thee ;"
and then the tears rolled down the sailor's
checks, and his softened heart yearnedfor
the mother who had said, " I'll keep a
light till ye come back, Sandy."
Twenty years ago, and sfie was nearly
fifty then. Probably she was dead; but
some one might be'in the house, yet who
could tell hun of her. And so, in the
midnight darkness the sailor staggered up
the river path through the changed
streets and, led by the compass of his
heart, to the-lane where his boyhood home
had been so long before.
The lane was no more—a street of houses
now—but at its end, or he dreampt, San
dy saw a candle gleam. He drew near.
No fancy misled him. Yes, between the
curtains stood a candle, in very truth; and
in the window of his old home. He stag
gered on, his heart beating wildly, He
struck the. door with his hand. I3e wait
ed trembling; and the door owned; at it
stood an old, old woman, with white hair
—his mother. le knew her stern strong
features and her blue eyes still.
"What's this?" she said, in her Scot
tish accent; and he answered.
"A poor sailor, shipwrecked and need
ing shelter."
"Come in," she said, come in and
warm ye. It's a bitter night. The can
dle led you here, no doubt. It's burnt
these twenty yearn. Ye wonder at that?
I'd • boy once. lie left me. The candle
burns for him. I've a fancy it will wile
him back, yet; and I've gone without•
bread many a time to keep it burnin'.
The others are all dead; but I'll not be
lieve he's gone:—and I said I'll keep a
light till ye come back Sandy—and I Will."
And then he flung himself upon his
knees before her, she knew that Sandy
had conic back, indeed.
He never again forsook her. A better
son and a better man than liantly came to
be, those of the seaport say they may never
see him again. • And if you go thither,
they will point you out the little cottage
window at which, strong in her fiith for
his return, Captain Cameron's mother
kept a light burning for all the nights of
twenty years—that, and the mansion
where, with her son, now married Itml
Captain of an mean steamer, she yet 'iv( s
to bless him.
The following most romantic, yet well
authenticated story, comes from Ohio.
After rea(line it, we can almost believe
that sweetest of all stories, Evangaline, to
be a truth, and not a poetic fiction ;
In 18-10, henry lAAlingwell, a young
mechanic, living near London, was accus
ed of larceny, tried, convicted, and sen
tenced to ten years of hard labor in the
penal colony of Australia. his wife, be
lieving him to be innocent, prepared to
follow him, to remain near him during his
confinement, and to be the first comfort
and cheer him when his time expired.
But the ship on which Mrs. Leffingwell
embarked encountered a fearful storm and
sunk; the passengers and crew barely es
caped upoiva raft. They were picked up
b e y an American ship bound from New
ork to China, where the wife found her
self farther than ever from her destina
tion. Through the kindness of friends
she obtained a passage to Cuba, and
thence to Australia. A year and a half
had clasped meanwhile, and how was she
to know of her husband's locality. Each
convict in Australia receives a number,
by which only he is known to his koTers;
and as Mrs. Leffingwell did not know her
husband's number, all her inquiries were
useless. Yet for four years she persevered
--attpporting herself the while by menial
labor—when one (lay she read in a news
paper an account of her husband's release,
the real perpetrator of the larceny having
been discovered. She made immediate
inquiries, only to learn that the object of
her search had left the island for the
United States two weeks after his release.
To follow him was her desire, but her
means were scanty. Yet at the first pos
sible opportunity, which was in 1847, she
took passage to New York, where she re
mained some years, with her mission still
unaccomplished, though she made every
exertion to find her husband. When the
war broke out she responded to the call
for nurses in the hospitals, and faithfully
tended the wounded.
In one of the hospitals at Washington,
Mrs. Lettingwell took care of a soldier who
had known her husband well. She learned
he was in a Pennsylvania regiment, and
wrote to him at once. But the letter
never reached its destination; and after
weary waiting, the devoted wife went to
