This poem, as well as the one entitled " Little

farinerly Private Secretary of President Lincoln,
and more recently connected with our Legations
at Vienna and Madrid. If these productions
are reprded a., not strictly orthodox from a sec
tarian point of view, those who are inclined to
condemn them as immoral or irreverent on this

are able to estimate the extenuatini qualities of
that charity which coyereth a multitude of sins,
Well. no! I emit tell where lie

And her day come at last—
The Moraster was a better boat,
But the Belle she ennthhi't be passed.
And so she came tearin' along that night—
The oldest craft on the line,
With a nigger squat on her safety valve,
And her furnace crammed, rosin and pine.
The fire bust out as she cleared the bar,
And burnt a hole in the night,
And quick as a flash she turned and made
For that wilier bank on the right.

"My last hope rests in von, May."
"In me, father?"
May Warren made answer in a tone of
surprise, raising her sad, anxious eyes to
her father's face. rt
As if her gaze discomposed him. Mr.
Warren turned his head, and his glance
wandered restlessly around the apartment.
He was an old man, with a tall, spare fig
ure, thin, gray-hair, and was sitting in an
arm-chair, by a table covered with papers,
while his pretty daughter May sat beside
him on an ottoman. She repeated her
'words :
"In me, father ?"
"Yes," he replied, starting from a mo
ment's abstraction. "Do
y ou remember
Col. Leighton, my dear ?"
"Col. Leighton ? An old man with a
heavy beard, partly gray, and pleasant
blue eves. lle dined with us a few weeks
ago. 'Yes, I remember him, father."
"Not so very old, May, not so old as I
am, and one of the finest men living. He
is wealthy,—very wealthy, too."
He me e t his daughter's questioning ga z e
fully now, as if he had wished her to read
something in his face. She kept her dark
eves fixed searchingly upon his counte
nance; the ebb and flow of the soft color
upon her cheeks betraying the quick pul
sations of her heart.
"What do you mean, father ?" she a.%1,-
ea, at leutth.
" I saw him last night. lle offered to
help me-.—save me, if—"
"If what, father ?"
" If I would give ton to him."
The words came hurriedly from Mr.
Warren's lips, as if he feard that if he de
liberated he should not lie able to utter
them at As they fell cn his daugh
ter's ear she started to her feet, pushing
her hair hack from her pale face, in a be
wildered sort of way, as if she w<re half
" Marry me. father ? Col. Leighton ?'
she cried in a low vrdee.
Mr. Warren took her hand, and drew
her down to her seat again.

boyhood, and understand perfectly welt

is, what the alternative will be if you do

She knew onlF to well. Folly she rra- !

luxuries to which her father had been ar
castorned were to him. Absolute loss of
possession did not seem the most dreadful
thing in the world to her. bat • She knew

the sacrifice was possible occurred to her.

Ile raised his head whitened with the
frosts of sixty winters, and looked at her
with a gleam of hope in his sunken eves
She crept into his arms as she had done
when a child, and laid her soft cheek
against his wrinkled brow.
" You know that I love von, father,"
she said.
" I can never remember von but as
kind, tender, and forbearing with me.
Your heart has been my home all my life.
I will work, beg, suffer fur you—l will
die for you—oh, how willingly, if need be!
But that—oh, father, you do not know
what it is that Von ask!"
He did not speak, but a moan broke
uncontrollably from his lips as he rested
his head upon her shoulder. The strug
gle in her heart sent dark shadowy waves
across her face. Could she—could she.
" Father," she whispered hurriedly,
"let me go, now. I will see you again—

reached out his arms to embrace her, but
she was gone.
" Heaven pity me !" The words came
like a wail from her lips. She was alone
in the chamber, flung prostrate upon a
low conch, with her face hid in the cush
ions. The sound of the rustling foliage
of the garden, and the chirping of the
birds, came in through the open window

The Sabbath.
'no following testimonies an I experi
ences, not of the clergy, but of statesmen,
philosophers, and men of wide reputation

life, bearing on a snbject attracting con
siderable attention at the - present time,
may not be uninteresting to one readers:
"If Sunday had not been observed as a
day of rest diiring the last three centuries.
I have not the smallest doubt that we
should have been at this moment a poor
er and less civilized people than we urn."
[Lord Macaulay.]
" There is ho religion without worship,
or no worship without the Sabbath."
[Count Mon talem bert.]
"The. more faithfully I apply myself to
the duties of the Lord's day, the more
happy and successful busidess dur

" A corruption morals usually fol

" The Sabbath as 3 politi4iinstitution

"Sunday is a day of account, and a
candid account every seVenth day is the
best preparation fol. the great day of 'ac

"I can truly declare that to rue the
Sabbath has been invaluable." [William
" Give the world half of Sunday, and
you will find religion has. no strong hold
of the other." [Sir Walter Scotti •
" Where there is no Christian Sabbath
there is no Christian morality ; and with
out this, free institutions cannot long Le
sustained," [Justice McLean.]
" The longer I live the more highly do
I estimate the Christain Sabbath, and the
more grateful do I feel toward those who
impress its importance on the communi
ty." [Daniel Webster.]
In a general order, issued November
111, 1862, President Lincoln commanded
that "Sunday labor in the arrrhyand navy
be reduced to the measure of strict neces
sity. The discipline and character of the
national forces should not suffer, nor the
cause they defend be imperiled, by the
profanation of the day or name of the
Most nigh."
Attorney-General Bates, of the Cabinyt,
wore: "The religions character of an in
stitution so ancient, so' sacred, s-) lawful
and so necessary to the peace, the corn
fort and the respectability of society,
ought alone to be sufficient for its protec
' tion ; but, that failing, surely the laws of
the land made for its account ought to
• be as strictly enforced, as the laws tur the
protection of person and property. If
the Sunday laws be neglected or despised
tht laws of person and property will soon
share their hite and be equally disregard
" The Sabbath must be. observed as a
day of rest. This Ido not state as an
opinion, but knowing that it has its
foundation upon a law in man's nature
as fixed as that he must take food or die."
[Dr. Willard Parker, of New York City.]
"As a day of rest, I view the Sabbath
as a day of compensation for the inade
quate restorative power of the body under
continued labor and excitement. O , ne -
day iu seven, by the bounty of Ps vi
deuce, is thrown in as a day of compensa
tion to perfect by its repose the animal
system." [John Richard Farre, M. D.. of
r .
London, England.] ,
Ia Presse, one of the great secular
journals of Paris, has said, "England owes
" much of her energy and character to
" the religious keeping of Sunday. Why
" cannot Fiance follow Lei., as the Sub
" bath was made for all men, and we need

"Looking at the question from the lowest
"point of view, it is the eSPccial duty and
"interest of working men to discourage

" Parisian system COW into vogue in this
"country, under which the sLiforlds of!
" public buildings were as crowded with
" workmen as on any other day, and they I
" would have to work seven days for the
"pay new received for six."
"So• far as my observation extends,
those who are in the habit of avoiding
worldly cares on the Sabbath are those
most remarkable for the liiq.fect perfor
mauccof their duties durm,g the week.
