The Old Horse's Soliloquy.
BT C.tLKB DIN.
A poor and an old worn horse am I,
Doomed to work till I fall acd die.
Yet I think you'll not find 'neath the sky
A body who toils more faithfully
For the comfort and good of humanity.
Many a day when the snow has spread
Its pure white robes, I've kept up my tread,
Though I felt more like a poor horse dead,
And, in my way, these words I've said :
-ion is my lot, lor 10 toil i was oreu.
Patiently ever I pull my way
Rough though it be by. night or day.
Vet often t think that, could I stray
Far from these scenes, I would ever pray
Never again to tee car or dray.
Often my driver who ought to see
I Why he should always be kind to me
: Whips my poor back most mercilessly,
And curses me too ; but little thinks he
I Of the pangs I suffer so patiently.
! An 1 my owner, too, whose heart grows cold
With its love of power and its thirst for gold,
Forgets, in his blindness deep and bold,
That the horse who has scived him some
rights may hold,
Albeit he may be larae and old.
Hundreds of limes in my stable I've stood
In a really sad and lonely mood,
Thinking of brighter days when there would
Come to me. as theie certainly should,
A long, long rest, and reward that is good.
Tet, after all, contented I'll be
With tuy lot, and my work, and my destiny ;
And I think, though a horse, a slave, not
Whoever may use me cruelly.
In the sight of Heaven I am better than be.

The state uv things at the Capital sur

euiltiii thct I cood turn to account iu aa
aiiitiii iu kiverin up this swindle, the same
cz I yooaed to do in the good old daya
uv Bookanan, but I wuz disappinted.
The Uepublikia members refoosed any
concealment aud insisted on committees
and sich. When the plague wuz ragin
in London the dead carts wood draw np
afore the houees and driver wood howl,
"bring out yer dead." When Credit
Mobiler raged in Washington, the people
yelled to Congress, 'bring out yer dead.'
lied it bin Dimocratie Congress, we
wood hev gone to the door and swore
that we Led no dead, but not so with the
present one. "Bring out yer dead !"
shouted the people. "Here are the
corpses !" eed Congress, cheeifully, and
these wuz then laid out on coolin boards
and ready to be sent home for burial.
It wuz a most unprecedented proceed
in. In the old times ef a Democrat de
voted to Sunday Skools and tcmprance,
bed bin innocently led by a plottin
skeemer to accept stock in a Credit Mo
biler the skeemer carry iug the stock till
the dividends shood pay for it, and so
on, and charges bed bin brot agin him,
wat wood hev happened I He wood hev
riz, and, pintin calmly to bis Sunday
Skools and temprance, wood Lev indig
nantly asked ef life devoted to Sunday
Skools and temprance wuz to be blasted
on the mere assertion uv a plottin skeem
er who Led not devoted bis life to Sun
day Skools and temprance ? And the
Democratic House wood bev voted him
clear and Lev expelled the accuser, and
each member wood hev tripped gaily to
draw the dividends on the stock wich be
I bed a curiosity to see how the eon
stitoents uv the great Ames wood receive
him, and I bed an opportoonity to grati
fy that curiosity. Mr. Ames sejested to
me that I ehood go, aud he slipped
sutbin into my band. I fell into his
trap the same ez the placid Colfax did,
and sed I wood go.
"Ef ray people insist on given mo a
recepshun," sed Le, "see to it that it is
spontaneous. I hev a conservatory wich
it may be worth your while to see ef
they want flowers to decorate the tables
but enuff Speeches will be necessary,
and we mutt bev em, but see that yoo
select men r.Lo will do it spontaneously.
Were I a hard man I cood make it un
comfortable for the honest JCree men in
North Easton who stood refoose to cheer
at tbe proper time, but . I will say
no more. My family doctor makes a

good speech, and the school teacher is a
poet. I have heard that be bez bed an
idea uv writitt a poem in wich I am to
be crowned with laurels, and tbe ages do
homage to me, and possibly Le mite bev
it done to read at thiar recopehiu but uv
course it aiu't for me to say. My factry
will turn out strong, uv course. But go
and visit North Easton."
I did so. Mr. Ames bez a factry at
North Easton wich makes shovels. Tbe
physician doctors rick shovel makers,
aud insists on bringiu into the world em
bryo shovel makers ; the store keeper
sells goods to shovel makers ; the teach
er teaches young shovel makers ; the
shoe maker and tailor labor for shovel
makers, and the preacher preaches t o
shovel makers. Mr. Ames is the boss
shovel maker he is the sum uv this
system. Ef be bed buatid iu this Cred
it Mobiler, the factry wood bev bin
closed, North Easton wood bev vanished
into thin air, and a few years Lence all
that the curous traveler wood find wood
be tbe last shovel maker a gray-haired
man, aittin on the rooitts uv tbe biler
arch, starin about in a wild, vacant way.
Mr. Ames owns this shovel factory in
North Kaston, and North Easton beleev
es Mr. Ames to be honest. They reject
with intense scorn the idea that be ever
did anything wrong, or that he could do
anything wrong. So the next day after
my arrival, aud after I had interviuwed
the leadiu citizens, a public recepshun
was tendered Mr. Ames a spontaneous
recepshun ou the part uv the people uv
wich Mr. Amos wuz kept in profound
ignorance, and I wus requested to direct
I Bejested theu that it be held iu the
skool house, (wich Mr. Ames built), and
that tbe music be furnished by the North
Easton band (wich Mr. Ames equipped )
It wuz deemed necessary to give the
proceedins a religions cast, so I reques
ted the pastor uv the church wich Mr.
Ames attends to ask the blesein. The
family physician uv the great and good
Mr. Ames wnz set down to preside and
prepose Lis health, and the general Com
mittee uv Arrangements wus made np
from the store keepers who do business
in Mr. Ames' store. Tbe clerks and
book-keepers in Mr Ames, factory were
districted along the tables at rcgler in
tervals to prodoose spontaneous applause
at sich times ez I shood indicate.
Heie trouble set iu. The family phy
sician bed relatives away from North
Easton, and he did't like to do it.
"Prepare your speech !" eed I per
emptorily. "Must I say," sed this wretched man,
pale with anxiety, "must I say that Mr.
Ames is an honest man, wich is the nob
lest work uv God, (wich I bcleeve it is
the noblest work, there ia so little uv it,)
and likewise that he is gold wich bez
passed through the crocible, and come
out purer and brighter. Heaven ? must
1 1 Is there no escape 1"
"Must yoo ! 'My friend, I shood say
so This spontaneous gatherin must
take place. Ef yoo refoose do you know
wat will happen to you t Another phy
sician will prescribe the nimble cathartic
and the energetic emetic another's cal
omel will wrench the bowels uv North
Eastou and make bizness for the under
taker. By the way, ef the undertaker
hez an interest in your coutinyooance
here, Le ought to do Lalf the speech
Tho frame uv mind uv this, physician
may be inferred from the act that he
didn't see the sarcasm uv this remark.
But it coodent hev bin expected.
"An honest man is tho noblest work
uv God, and gold from the croocible,"
groaned he. "Is there other impromptu
remarks that I must make V
"None. These are the rcglars and
will anser. But don't be cast down my
friend. It iz only for a minit, and after
yoo bev done sich things a few times
yoo won't notis it. Be uv good cheer."
Tbe night came. The skool-house
wuz illoominatid the tables wuz orna
mented with flowers; tbe Ames were
grouped, the clergyman offered np bis
little prayer, and the eatin wended. At
its concloosiu the Doctor rose, and ad
drcssia the great and good Ames, re
marked that his friends and neighbors
bed met that they mite extend to him
the hand nv welcome that they met ez
friends and neighbors, to show him that
they bed the most perfect confidence in
Lis honesty and integrity, and that while
wicked men Led endeavored to blast bis
(air name, North Easton Led alluz looked
upon Lim ez an honest man, wich wuz
the noblest work uv Gpd ('hear ! hear I
from the Superintendent uv the east shop
and three cheers proposed by the second
book-keeper ia the factory.) But ez
there wuz others wicb bed more flooency
present, he wood close by proposing ez
a sentiment, "Hon. Oakes Ames, like
gold from tbe croocible, be ez passed the
fiery ordeal, and comes out purer and
brighter than ever."
The Doctor sat down the most depress
ed man I ever saw. But Le Led done
all tLet we expected uv him. He Led
got in both quotasben, and his speech ez
Le spoke it, didn't vary materially, from
the slips wich bed been printed tbe day
afore tbe baneuet for the press.

Our guest replied, tbankin them for J
tbe spontaneous triboot, wich wuz the i
more gratifyin becoz it wuz spontaneous :
and unsought. He wuz strong in tbe !
consciousness nv recitood. True, he bed
sold stock to members uv Congress for
less than it wuz worth, but wuz that bri
bery I He trusted Lis vindicasLen to
bis friends and neighbors.
Other speeches wnz made. The tie
famers uv the great and good man were
denounced ez perjured villians, and the
buildin uv all the public works uv tbe
country from tbe Erin caual to date were
ascribed to his ability, by the enthusias
tic agents nv the factry. So complimen
tary were these speeches that I, myself,
got to feelin that in the articles nv Roman
integrity and truth and sich, the late G.
Washington wnz a thief beside Mr.
Ames. One enthoosiastic mau, the prin
cipal of Mr. Ames' skool, read a poem
uv bis own, iu which be lied Mr. Ames
beia crowned with laurels and fttcher
p.sres doin homn?e to him. wich wuz an
exceed 1 n wrenched effort for a man ou so

I think seriously of movin to North
Easton. I kin make a better speech
that the doctor a better prayer than tbe
minister, and kin sling a better poem
than tbe skool master. But if I shood

however. The great and good Ames

'Captain Jack": Ue is a stern, dignified
looking man, not over thirty, though Le
looks older. He has a good head though,
like all Iudians the forehead is low. His
complexion is dark the pure copper col
or and bis eyes are black, full and pier
cing. His bair is long, hanging down to
his shoulders, and he is, of course, des
titute of all beard. His mouth is large,
and its shape indicates firmness, deter
mination and a great deal of character.
He was very glad to see Steele, but be
did not show it by bis manner. When
he shook Lis bands it was with an indiff
erence that, to one unacquainted with In
dian character, would seem to be abso
lute rudeness. He was dressed in a
hickory shirt, and was covered with blan
kets. On Saturday, the 8th ult , a wagon
belonging to Mr. C. Kelly, of Union

During tbe night the spokes were cut and
the tongue sawed off. On Sunday morn

Mr. Carpenter's blacksmith shop, where
it is is supposed the miscreants procured
the saw and axe with which to accom

made with heavy hob uailed shoes, with
iron heel plates, aud suspicion fell upon
two miners formerly employed by Mr.
Kelly, who bad made threats against
him on account of having been discharg

Kelly had tbcm arresed.

Halifax, N. S., April 1.
This afternoon a report was circulated
that a steamer bad been wrecked on the
coast and several lives lost It was at
first regarded as a cruel April fool hoax,
but to-night the Cnnard agent here re

on Monday, March 31, when her supply
f e8l became exhausted. The captain !
determined to put into Halifax, and the !
j captain and third officer were on deck
j niit'l midnight. Iler position was then
'judged to be Sambro light bearing N. N
W. thirty-nine miles.
The captain went into bis chart rotnn,
leaving orders to be callid if there was
any change in the ship's position. Brady
went to bed about the same time as the
The next thing be remembers is that
he was thrown out of his bunk, and felt
the ship strike several times. He then
rushed on deck, and found the captain
and officers there, and tbe deck full of
lie got an axe and commenced to clear
away tbe boats. The captain and other
officers were bnsy dinj the same thing.
Brady got his boat out and put two wo
men in it. A nnmber of men attempted
to get into it, and about a dosfrn suc
ceeded. Just at that moment the steamer
fell over on her beam ends and sank.
Only one boat bad been got out and
that was carried down by the steamer,
and all in it lost. Brady scrambled into
the mizzen rigging, which was above the
water, and, seeing he conld do nothing
there, went forward and unwove the hal
yards, being assisted by Quartermaster
Speakmaa and Owen.
He then took the halyards and alT
three swam to tbe rock The line was
hauled ashore and a number of passen
gers landed by it. A number bad got
on it, but as tbe tide was rising, their
situation was no better than on tbe ves
sel. Just then fishermen on shore came
out in boats and rescued those on the
rock and a large number from the rig
ging. Brady remained at the scene until
noon to day, when all who were alive on
board bad been saved, except Chief
Officer Mr. Firth, who was in tbe rigging
shouting for help.
Brady says he tried to get a crew to
go to Firth's rescue, but the sea was so
heavy that nobody would volunteer.
At three P. M. a clergyman, Rev. Mr.
Ancient, succeeded in getting a crew of
four men, who, together with himself,
rowed out to tbe wreck. Mr. Ancient
got into the main rigging and procured a
line, then advanced as far as he could
toward Mr. Firth and threw it to him
When he was got into tbe boat be was
so exhausted and benumbed that he was
hardly able to do anything for himself. !
and but for the clergyman's gallant con j
duct, he ranst have perished soon.
Altogether about 250 persons were saved, !
including Captain William, also Fourth j
Officer Brown, the doctor and several of
the engineers and sailors.
Not a single woman or child was
saved. Most of them, as well as hun
dreds cf men, were drowned in their
berths. Ihe ship struck about two A. .M., j weeks of wedded Hiss thinks be paid
