Lydia Cbeever's heart did incline
When she had lived years eighty-nine,
To say that Satan will be bound
In chains till a thousand years roll round
The Bible saith, " The• old Serpent will
Be bound in fetters, and kept still
A thousand years ;" then is come
The time when he is loosed to run.
He has not yet been bound at all,
Since the Creation, and the Fall
Of Adam, from his state of peace
Into a gulf of wretchedness.
But he has had full liberty
TO tempt the" humap faintly ;
And has deceived the nations so,
That all are sunk in sin and woe.
We read 41-God's own Book of some
Who will in ages, yet to come,
Build houses and their vineyards plant,
And eat the fruit—which others can't.
Their labors shall not be in vain ;
But reap the fruit of all their pain ;
These people—they shall long enjoy
The things that did their hands employ.
They are the blessed of the Lord,
Who will enjoy this rich reward.
But such a state has not been found,
Nor will it come till Satan's bound.
And when the thousand years shall end,
Satan will from his pit ascend,
And gather Gog, and Magog; for
There then will be a dreadful war:
Upon the earth they are to go,
And compass camp, and city, too ;
Then God will send Gre, and destroy
The army Satan did employ.
'Tis in this world these things shall be,
(Not in a ion!? eternity.)
It is then more than a thousand years
Before this earth shall disappear.
'Now. let It work. Mischief thou art afoot.
Tate what courNo thou wilt."
The substance orlhe following is no fib:
t ion. In a neighboring village, whose in
habitants/like the_good.people of Athens,
were tnuCh given to " either tell or hear

Aunt Lizzy was Deacon Snipe's wife's
sister—a maiden lady of about fifty—she
welit, to all the meetings—kept a regular
account of every birth, ath and mar
riatm, with their dates—doctored all the
babies, and knew every yard in the nei!,h
borhood—showed all the young married
women bow to make soap, and when they
had bad luck, made every child in the
house sit cross-legged until the luck
changed. In tadt, she was a kind of vil
lage factotumr-s`rnt her time in going
from house to houSe, grinding out a grist
scandal to each, as occasion required, hut
always concluded wilh "the way of the
transgressor is hard ;" " - poor Mrs. A. or
B. (as the case was) I pity her from the

Aunt Lizzy was always very fond of
asking strangers and others, without re
to time or plade," the state of their
minds ; how they enjoyed their minds,"
the. These questions were generally fid.
lowed by a string of scandal, which was
calculated to destroy the peace and happi
ness of some of her best neighbors and
friends; but she, like other narrators of
this kind, considered such ib intellectual
murder as either establishing in her own
way a fair reputation, or as the only mode
of entertaining the vidage, and thereby
rendering her society agreeable.
One warm summer's afternoon, as the
Squire was sitting • near his office" door,
smoking his pipe, Aunt Lizzy was pais
ing.hy with great, speed, ruminating on
the news of the day, when the Squire

eyes began in twinkle; she sat down be

snuff box in true style, and all things be

" Not, Squire, I want to know what
you mean by one of our church ? I know
who you mean, the trollope ; I didn't like*
so many curls about her head when she
told her experience."
The squire finding curiosity was putting
his boots on, had no occasion to ndd spurs
to the he'els, for the old lady had one in
her head lhat was worth two of them.—
Accordingly he had no peace until he con
sented to explain what he meant by the
expresSion " in private"—this was a dear
word with Aunt Lizzy.
"Now, Aunt Lizzy, will you take a Bi
ble oath that you will never communicate
what I am about to tell you to a living
being, and that you will keep it while you
live as a most inviolable secret ?"

Aunt Lizzy drew in a long breath, shut
up her snuff box and put it in her pocket,
muttering to herself—
" The likeliest of our church members !
I thought it was-Susey 8., likeliest—this
comes of being flatterid a trollope.—

lu a few moments aunt Lizzy took her
departtire, giving the Squire another cau
tion and a sly wink, as she said good by ;
let me alone for a secret.
It was not many days before Squire P.
received a polite note from Parson G. re
questing him to attend a meeting oof the
church, and many of the parish, at the
South Conference room, in order to set
tle some difficulties with one of the church
members, who, in order to clear up her

"When Lord Lyon; represented Eng- .
land at the Court of the Republic, his
wife had kwaiting maid who took the
fancy of a certain lady in the White
House. By the promise of preferment
and increased wages, this maid was in
duced to transfer her services from Lady
Lyons to another lady whose name had
the same initial. She thought, poor thing,
that she would have nothing to do but
exhibit herself about the White House;
but this delusion was very speedily dis
pelled ;, for it was only a few days when
she was set to making drawers out of the
linen sheets of the establishMent. This
wounded her feelings so much that she
soon "gave notice" to her em'ployer, anti

the story goes) an order for a beantifel
chandelier for the White House. The
price of the chandelier was *500; but
somebody (as I was not present at the

chases made at the same time brought
the bill up to *2 200. • The storekeeper
was requested to make the porcelain and
china ivare cover the whole amount of
the bill, and to oblige his customer, he
did so. The bill went to the Secretary
of the Interior, who said to himself:—
'Twenty-two hundred dollars is a very
Ihigh price for those sets ; I must look in
to it.' He did look into it by sending an
agent to a large furnishing house in Phil

were sold, and the agent went back, to
Washington with the l information that
the Philadelphia price of the article was

wrote to the Broadway dealer to know

In sad despair I wonder,
My, heart, is filled with woe,
When on my grief I ponder,
What to do, I do not know;
For cruel fate has on me frowned,
And the trouble seems.to be,
There's another fellow in this 'era town
That's just the image of me.

Who said, pay this bill that you owe.

He wouldn't let me free,
Till a crowd came round, I paid the bill
For the fellow that.looks like me.

Through a harrow street up town,
I was seized by a man in a rage,
Who said,l've caught'you,Mr.Brown,

Though this gal I never did see.

One evening I sat sparking
A girl as dear as life,
When a lady who had just dropped in,
Says, Brown, how is your wife?
In vain I said, I'm a single man,
Though married I wish to be;
They called me a swindler and kicked

And was just enjoying the sport,
When a policeman grabbed, me by the

In one of the battles during the latter
part of the war, a soldier in one of the
Ohio regiments was taken prisoner. His
comrades, supposing him killed, so report
ed it to the family he had left behind him,
consisting of a wife and one child. The
woman remained single a year or two,
living from hand to mouth, but finally
went:to Toledo, where she accepted , a sit
uation as cook in a restaurant owned by
a mulatto. After a while they were mar
ried. The mulatto sold out his establish
ment at Toledo, wandered about from
place to place, and finally brought up in
this city, and procured a tenement in the
upper part of town. After running the
gauntlet of several of the Southern pris
ons, the soldier was finally exchanged,
and at the end of eighteen months after
his reported death went back to his old
home to find that his wife and child had
disappeared, bvt where she bad gone 'no
one could tell him. He at last came to
Lafayette and accepted a situation in a
cooper shop, he being a cooper by trade.
One day about
,two weeks ago .a little
boy came to the shop after shavings, and
the soldier at once recognized him as his
own. He asked the little one what his
name was, if his mother was living'and if
she was married. .Tte child gave his
name—the'same as his own—and said
his mother was married to a black man.
He told him to come back the next day
and he would have some nice shavings
and blocks ready for him.. The next day
the boy returned, and at the soldier's re
quest, conducted him to where his moth
er lived. The mulatto was not at home.
Upon seeing her soldier husband, the
woman, as a matter of course, fainted af
ter the most approved fashion and went
into hysterics. She soon recovered, how
ever, and after a few moments conversa
tion an understanding was arrived at be
tween them. Her last husband 'had but
two hundred dollars in money—what was
left of the proceeds of the gale of his es
tablishment in Toledo—which she pro
ceeded to secure, together with such lit
tle articles as she needed for her own
comfort and that of her child, and the
two, with their boy, left. the house and
the city together. The mulatto also left
the city thi next day and has not been
seen since.—Lafayette (Ind.) Journal.

attention early to the hivention of a -sew

motion vagaries. However, in 1848, his
genius triumphed and he received a pat

in litigation, growing out of infringements
on his patent, he finally succeeded in es

the sole possessor of au invention which
