When winds amona; the bllKhted bowers
Befran of eomlOE snows to talk,
I found a patch of golden flowers
Ono morning In my woodland walk ;
And all that day my heart was UkM,
For a soft whisper said to me,
Will not the love that keepeth briKbt
These little ooea, provide for thee?
Once when the eioads were full of ralu, ' '
And dark to deeper darkness grew,
A wild bird fluttered at my pane
And tone to me the long night through ;
Forgetting how the sky was blurred
With rainy shadows cold and gray,
1 sat and listened to my bird.
Till the broad east grew white with day.
In a lone desert plaea I tat
The earth was hot, and hot the air:
Far as the aye could reach, one flat.
Low reach or dry sands everywhere,
lint when my strength was alnxwt spent.
And sight to wavering darkness fell,
Lo the cool shadow of a tent.
And the soft murmur of a well.
Then said L looking back on all
My fears, be still, my heart, be still !
The evil hour eon Id never tail
Were there no power beyond the 111 !
My foolish fears within me died.
The clouds were lit with raintww gleams,
And the hot desert, far and wide,
L-vy like a garden tn my dreamt.
Tliere was a grand time over Buck
Fanshaw when he died. He was a
representative citizen. He had "kill
ed his man" not in his own quarrel,
it is true but in defense of a stran
ger, lieset by numbers. He had kept
a sumptuous saloon. He had leen
the proprietor of a dashing helpmate,
whom he could have discarded with
out the formalityof divorce. He had
held a high position in the fire depart
ment, and had been n very Warwick
in politics. When he died, there was
great lamentation throughout the
town, but especially in the vast Init
toni stratum of society.
On the inquest it was shown that
Buck Fanshaw, in the delirium ol a
wasting typhoid fever, had taken ar
senic, shot himself through the body,
cut his throat, and jumped out of a
four story window and broke his
neck : and after due delilieration, the
jury sad and tearful, but with intelli
gence unblinded by their sorrow, hro t

and even shed tears, but with an ef

in a lugubrious tone :
"Are you the duck that runs the

"Am I the pardon me, I believe I

With another sigh and a half sob
Scottv rejoined:
"Whv vou see. we are in a bit of

"The which ?"
"The spiritual advisor of the little

Scottv scratched his head, reflected
a moment, and then said :
"You rather hold over me, pard. I

did I understand you to say ?"
"Well, you've rather got the bulge

the bulffe somehow. You don't

You see one of the boys has passed
in his checks, and we want to give
him a good send, and so the thing
I'm on now is to rout out somebody
to jerk a little chin music for us, and
waltz him through handsome."
"My friend, I seem to grow more

He never could stand it to Bee things

If a thing wanted regulating, he

didn't make no difference about that.
when it came down to what a man s

jumped the Catholic bone-yard, and
started to stake out town lots in it, he

once when the Micks got to throwing
stones thro' the Mcthodis' Sunday
school windows, Buck Fanshaw all of
his own notion, shut up his saloon and
took a couple of six-shooters and

The obsequies were all the boys
could desire. Such a marvel of fu
neral pomp had never been seen in
Virginia. The plumed hearse, the
dirge beating brass bands, the closed
marts of business, the flags drooping
at half-mast, the long plodding pro
cession of uniformed secret societies,
military battallions, and fire compan
ies, draped engines, carriages of of
ficials, and citizens in vehicles and on
foot, attracted multitudes of specta-i
tors to the sidewalks, roofs and win
dows ; and for years afterward, the J
degree of grandeur, attained by any
civic display in Virginia was deter-j
mined by Buck Fanshaw's funeral, j

These stages ran crowded and there , sorn
was generally a contest for seats, i
Governor Thomas Corwin was to leave f
Muddk-burgh at midnight for the
State capital in a stage. To secure
the best seat this humorist sat up all
night. He was not alone, for he had
a bottle of choice old whiskey, to keep
him company. He tried his whiskey,
he said, plain. He then had it made
into a mint julep, after which he dis
cussed it in the shape of a smash.
about eleven o'clock he thought a
cocktail would add variety to this
spice of life. This he washed down
with a hot punch, and then, at mid
night, just as he heard the stage rat
tle in, - he took all that was left
Seizing his carpet sack an overcoat,
he rushed ouWo find a crowd around
the stage, and w ithout sayings, word,
but in a great hurry, bolted in and
ensconced himself in a corner upon
a back seat. He fell asleep congrat
ulating himself on having been so for
tunate, and had a dim, dreamy con
sciousness of tho stage roiling away.
When he again wakened, the stage
was at a standstill : the curtains were
all down, the windows up; but enough
daylight got in to satisfy him that
that institution had "done broke"
sometime since. He hastily started
up, and dropping one of the windows
was perfectly amazed to find himself
in the wagon yard of a hotel. Two
hogs were getting their breakfast out
of a manure heap, while a melancholy
cow stood chewing her cud while
working her tail to keep it in practice
for flytime. A lazy hostler was en
tertaining himself with a pitchfork,
a further note of the surrondings sat
isfied Governor Corwin that he was
in the rear of Muddleburgh hotel, and
that he had been there from twelve
o'clock of the night before. Corwin
was a man of genius, and it did not
take him long to discover the cause !
of this extraordinary result. He had !
got into a stage that had come in, in
stead of one going out The people
about this leathern conveyance, when
he ensconced himself, thought, as he
learned afterwards, that he was a pas
senger in search of an umberella, or
some other article, left behind
The Governor opened the door of!
the stage very softly. He crept out
trying to feel so small that, as he
said subsequently, his skin hung loose
on him. He could not escape, how
ever, the eyes of the hostler, who ex
claimed in some astonishment : "Hello,
Governor, did dey forgit and leave
you in de stage?"
"There, there, my man," answered
Corwin, giving him a silver dollar.
"You keep your fly trap shut, or
there'll be a sudden death in vour fam
ily." "Fore God," exclaimed the hostler,
aa Corwin walked away, "dat's most
'stronary ; the Governor of Ohio done
forgot in a stage coach.
Corwin w alked into tie hotel, de
posited his carpet sack and coat be
hind the first door he encountered,
and then sauntered iuto the breakfast
room, trying to assume an air of a
man who had not slept in a wagon
yard all night. While discussing the
oiled sole-leather and muddy coffee,
for which the American people pay
hotel prices, a friend on the other side
of the table looking up suddenly, ex
claimed: "Why, Governor, I thought
you left for the capital last night."
"Well, exclaimed Corwin, with one
of tho whimsical looks with which he
was wont to set the table in a roar,
"I was under that impression myself."
"Got left, did you?"
"Yes, I believe I was a good deal
left" " "
"How was that, Governor?"
"See here, my friend," exclaimed
Corwin, carefully depositing his knife
and fork on each side of his plate as
ir they were articles or value. "If you
will consent not to press a further in
vestigation upon that subject, I will
present your wife with a bonnet more
like a coal scuttle than any now in
market If you don't consent" he
continued with wild energy, seizing
his fork, "I'll murder you."
The story, however, was too good
for Tom to keep to himself, and for
years after he was in the habit of tel
ling how he slept in a stable yard, and
attributed it all to some very, bad
whiskey that the Hon. Salmon P.
Chase had given him. Donn Piatt.

The railways within London run
run right over the housetops. For
miles one looks down chimney-pots
and into garret windows. It requires
half an hour to get fairly clear of the
city from Charing Cross station.
Very many people travel third-class,
They sink style in consideration of the
expense. "What's the odds, so long
as you're happy ?" Third-class cars
have generally three or four compart
ments, each furnished with two un
cushioned scats. : The partitions be
tween each compartment are only
breast high. The windows are small
and without blind or rurtin. Third
class cars go nearest the engine, so
that in case of a smash-up your turn
comes first AH railway carriages
are painted in the dingiest fancy.
There arc no finnifications of brass or
gilt about the engines, and nothing
like the amount of machinery external
ly displayed as with ours. They are,
in appearance, sober, ponderous, din
gy, powerful and rejoice not in name,
but numbers. There is no "cab."
On some is a sort of shield with two
lookout holes. The carriages have
no such complicated trucks as ours.
The car wheels seem much lighter.
The trucks are kept in perfection of
order, r rom end to end none nut
employees are allowed upon them.
There is no walking the track for rec
reation here. The embankments are
finely sodded and in many places
utilized for cabbage aud potato patch
es. Many of the country stations arc
surrounded with flower gardens, and
at some I noticed the name of the
station grown upon the bank in white
and yellow flowers, the letters being
nearly two feet in height At others
it was similarly marked, or rather laid
with white chalk-stone. The book,

the good old Commonwealth to make
a very different history for herself
than that she caused to be recorded
under the administration of Andrew
G. Curtin ? That appeal, remember
was made to the States as States. It
so happened that nearly every free
State was officered by Republicans.
We all remember how nobly the free
states responded. It was, and con
tinues yet to be, cause of pride aud
gratulation that the Governor of Penn
sylvania was so prompt and sagacious
that the reaction of Bull Run was
stayed thereby. Does any man be
lieve that the famous Pennsylvania
Reserve Corps would have had an
existence had Charles R. Bucka
lew been the Governor to whom the
President's appeal was made ?
We have only to regard the re
sponses to that appeal made by Dem
ocratic Governors in the border and
Southwestern States, and we are suf-
fipientlv anawnriwl "Tho militia tf
i lrginia win not ue lurmsnea to tne

ernor Letcher. "I can be no party
to this wicked violation of the laws
of the country," replied Governor El

and those of our brethren," replied
Isham G. Harris. "I say emphatical- J

replied determined Governor Magoffin.
"The President's call is illegal, un
constitutional, revolutionary, inhuman
diabolical, and cannot be complied
with," replied Governor Jackson, of
Missouri. "The laws of the State do
not confer upon the Executive any
authority allowing him to comply
with such a requisition," replied Gov
ernor Burton, of Delaware. "I will
suffer my rif,nt arm to torn from
my body before I will raise it to strike
a sister State," said the Governor of
Maryland. Is it necessary to go
further in these quotations, to show
the action of nearly every State un
der Democratic control iu that hour
of great peril ?
To know what Mr. Buckalew would
have done had he been Governor of i
Pennsylvania in that emergency, we
have only to note what he did do as
a citizen and as a Senator. Neither
as citizen nor as Senator did he at
tempt to strengthen the hands of the
State or Federal government during
the four years of war for national
M:r.. n it. ...... i -4. r. . u

southern wing of the Democratic
party in arms against the Union, and
the willing defender of men who
strove to embarrass the government
by discouraging enlistments and re
sisting the drafts. Had he been in a
position to split hairs touching the
right of armed regiments from other
States to pass through Pennsylvania
to the defence of the capital, who can
say that he would not have submit
ted six columns of protest to the in
vasion of Pennsylvania? He was in
perfect political accord with such
Democrats as Mayor Brown and
Marshal Kane, of Baltimore. So late
as 13C4 he was in secret communica
tion with rebel emissaries, though at
the time a Senator of the United
States. ,
No roan who was against us, or
who occupied a doubtful position dur
ing the rebellion, can be trusted with
the control of State affairs. Nor is
this harsh judgment The tories were
never admitted to positions of trust
and honor after the Revolution. Mor
ally and practically Mr Buckalew's
attitude toward the government from
1861 to 1865 did not differ essentially
from that of the tories toward the
confederation. If it be said that no
emergency like that of 1861 iwill
again arise in national affairs, we re
ply that no man can forereach time
and decide that No Bach emergen
cy was believed likely to arise when
in 1860 Andrew Q. Curtin was elect
ed Governor. And so the people of
X( ) 12
this Commonwealth wrought wiser
than they knew, and prepared the'
State for a glorious page in history. j
As citizens, having the honor of j
Pennsylvania in keeping, we are rail-1
ed upon to act np to the highest wis- j
dom of to-day, and the highest wis-1
doni of this day is the average ex-)
perience of the last twenty years
brought to bear upon present jwilitical j
action. '
We all know that General Hart
ranft never betrayed a trust reposed
in him. We know that he would rise
to the level of any emergency that
has arisen or many arise. Never for
a moment was his position doubtful
during the war. As an executive of
ficer he ranked high among generals.
As a cool, determined, brave man his
record is without spot or dimness.
Twice the people of the State elected
him to the second highest place in
their gift, and he has proved entirely
worthy of their confidence. He is no
new man, no stranger, offered for the
suffrage of Republicans. To bestow
upon him the high trust for which he
is named is not so easy an experiment.
The experiment of trusting General
Hartranft has been tried, and he has
not been found wanting. To labor
for his preferment is an agreeable duty
and to congratulate him in the hour
of victory will be the pride of true
patriots. Xorih American

I had heard much of the bastinado,
a punishment existing only in the
East, but I had never seen it inflicted
before, and I fervently hope I never
shall see it again. I found the little
Governor standing atone end of the
large hall of entrance, munching and
trying causes. A crowd was gather
ed around, and before him was a poor
Arab, pleading and beseeching most
piteously, while the big tears were
rolling down his cheeks. Near him

thunder. The agony of suspense was
over, and, without a word or look, he
laid himself down on his face at the
feet of the Governor. A space was
immediately cleared around, a man on
each side took him by the hand, and,
stretching out his hands, kneeled upon
and held them down, while another
seated himself across his neck and
shoulders. Thus nailed to the ground,
the poor fellow, knowing now that
there was no possible chance of es
cape, threw up his feet from the knee
joint, so as to present the soles in a
horizontal position. Two men came
forward with a pair of long, stout
bars of wood attached together by a
piece of cord, between which they
placed the feet drawing them togeth
er with the cord, to fix them in their
horizontal position, and leave the
whole flat surface exposed to the full
force of the blow. In the meantime
two strong Turks were standing
ready, one at each side, armed with
long whips, much resembling our
common cow skin, but longer and
thicker, and made of the thick hide of
the hippopotamus. While the occu
pation of the Judge was suspended

in his pocket for his seal, and dipped

am sure I grinned horribly in return
and, almost snatching the letter, just
as the last blow fell, I turned to has

The poor scourged wretch was

the senseless body, and saw the feet

streaming down the legs. At that
moment the bars were taken away,
