THE FATHER LAND.
t Tho German, uncouth as it Bounds to foreign
r, Is one of tho most poetical of living languages.
'It is impossible, however, to preserve its spirit in a
translation. TheYolIowing sweet stanzas are'taken
from the Cincinnati Gazette. They "w ere transla
ted from the'German.End'tsung by the Free Shoo'
of the German Emigrants' Friends' Society, Cin
cinnati, on the 4th of July last. They remind us
of the charming little piece sung to tho Spanish
'Guitar, beginning with "Gaily "the Troubadour."
Sailing from Fatherland,
Hither we come;
Sad was the sigh we heaved
Leaving our home.
Borne by the swelling Waves,
Over the sea,
Hi ermany, Germany!
Hast'ning from thee!
Land of our youthful days
"Oft wc a tribute pay,
Fond and sincere.
Nor shall we "e'er forget,
iar though we bo,
There do our fathers sleep,
Buried in thee.
Toils we- have struggled through
Freedom to gain,
Cod has enabled us
This to obtain;
"Freedom and pleasant homes
Hero we possess,
-Join'd in our love to them,
Wo will rejoico.
Though from a foreign shore,
True we will prove,-
Faithful in Freedom's cause,
Constant in love;
Now will our vows be made,
Here at thy shrine",
We will be thine!
Now may the God of pcacft
Guido us through youth,
Make us a chosen "race,
Strong in tho Truth;
And when the trial oomes,
May we all then,
Bold in our country's ctMai,
Prove wo arc mtfn.
Remarkable Atrocity: A. most remark
hole attempt to murder a girl was recently
made at the parish of L'Islut, L. Canada
A girl nbtflft 13 years of age, of a respecta
ble family in the parish, had gone to gather
raspberries "at the end of her fathers's farm,
in company Avith a younger girlj a cousin,
about 10 years of age. As they were pre
paring 'to ictUrh, a laborer, named Charles
'Gandran'Ut a native of St. Ignac, who has
ocen along fesident in the parish, joined
them TvitVi his gun upon his shoulder, re
turning from pigeon shooting. After some
tjouvcrsation between them on different
matters, he appeared to be suddenly seized
with a diabolical frenzy, artcf seizing the
two girls by their throatej he threw them to
the ground; by dint of struggling the young
er girl got free, and ran to seek assistance
Gaudrault left alone with his victim, took a
large stone atid struck her several blows
Upon the head and on the body; he then
drew his knife from his pocket, and open
ing it with his teeth, he endeavored to cut
the throat of the girl, which he partially
accomplished, after repeated efforts. Sur
prized however, in his murderous design,
he fled, leaving his victim for dead. The
other girl returned with assistance, and cv
ery attention was paid to the sufferer, and
it is thought she will recover. The mur
derer made his escape for two days, but
after a hot pursuit, he was captured and
committed to prison. lie it represented ;
us a good looking lad, but brutally ignorant
The Power of Conscience. We were
shown on Saturday last a letter addressed
to a late citizen of this borough by an indi
vidual residing in the nation of the Choc
taw Indians. The writer says that some
years ago he was a journey man workman
in the Hat manufactory of the person to
whom the letter was written, and that he,
when in want of money, purloined and sold
for his own benefit, a hat and two "bodies"
belonging Xo the owner of tho shop. He
states that since that time Ire has become
-convinced of the error of his ways nnd
made a profession ofroligion and he en
closes in his letter a five dollar note of the
United States Bank to pay the injured party
for the loss sustained by his dishonesty.
The name of the" writer is not subscribed;
""but he-can'now enjoy the proud conscious
TJCSJ of having atoned for his fault and ex
emplified one of tho highest attributed of
humanity, though his late employer has
gone down to thq grave. The entire cir
cumstance illustrates the truth of the poet's
"Still there whispers tho small volcowilhfn
Heard through God's silence and o'er" glory's din,
