The evening wn. beaullfiil, pleasant and gay,
The llowers sunt forth, the rich odors of May,
The pale moon vvns tinning, with soft mellow light,
And lliu star-spongled heavens smiled down on tho eight
I wandered alone near n beautiful stream,
To meditate freely, on nature's fair scene,
When .uih'cntliercBcemcd, tlir'othu fre.h budding tree.
A low w nlllng murmur, a nigh In the brtezo.
I turned mo to sec from whence came thu sound,
And saw a joung female, bunt low o'er it mound,
SSho plucked the wild flower., so fragrant and gay,
And scattered tlicui o'er w here her dear loved one lay.
T lien said In a plaiuiiiio nml soul. touching cry:
0 I lovely and loved one, why hast thou to die f
01 Dentil, inexorable, what hast thou Iodic t
Thou hast taken my bust, and my only loved one.
I call, but noniiRWcroiibrdsinu relief,
I call nml my echo, hut mucks at my griff,
Otlml I could pierce, with my oiio, the cold clay,
And speak that my loved one, could hear what 1 say.
But the last link is broken, that binds me to earth.
I OUtiuefoigetall my sorrows iudeath,
Let me lie down and nu the grave of my friend,
1 ask not, 1 need nut a huppicr end.
While thus she laminted her loved one's sad fato
And mournfully .poke of hur own wretched stale,
The ricraph-likc form of an Angel of light,
Immortally cluthcd, stuud full in her sight,
He gave her ti wreath of tho flowers of love,
That he culled from the fair of the garden above.
Then spoku 111 the language of Cod's holy word,
tiajiiig "b'tsl are the dead who die In the Lord,"
They rest from their labors of love when they dlo,
To resume them again with their baviour on high,
Where llowers ne'er wither and death is noiuoro,
And inning, and sighing, and keeping no more.
Then drv up jour tears, ami weep not for the dead,
l'ur they shall be raised, the Savior halli said,
1'rtparu then, to meet him on thatblessed shore,
Where fiieuds shall unite, to be parted no mure.
She heard him w ith rapture, nnd smiled thro' her tears,
lllswords so consoling, had chased all her fuars,
liy faith flie luoked upward, and heard from the throne,
A cure confirmation, that all shall be done.
Il.;r mind then was trnnnuil, her tears lied away,
U'iili patience I'll wait all the uppointe-l day,
"J ill the word of my change from the Father is given,
Submission I II bow to the mandates of Heaven.

THE ANDREWS FAMILY
IN THE CITY.
"1ad tola U3 gals that wlion Lo got
through harvGst he'd take us all down to
the city; bo wo put on our broad brimmed
suu-bonnots, to preserve our complexions,
and set to work raking hay for we ex
pected to cut a great swell in the city.
Wo worked smart for dad, so as to have
him got through, we were so anxious, just
like one is when they're waiting for their
beau to come Sunday night.
" Jane Ann, she made her borage; Bet,
she altered over her lilack silk, and I
trimmed my Tuscan with red. whito and
blue flowers. It looked stylish, 1 tell ye.
Well, wo were moro'n a fortnight fixing
up, before dad was ready to start. Final
lie bitched in the old marc, and wo six
gals bundled in.
'"Twasa splendid morning, and every
thing looked as serene as frisking lambs
in a pasture. Dad drove up side of tho
park, as he called it ; it looked liko a
great pasture, though if they'd had any
sense they'd cut down some of
them trees, if thoy expected to raiso half
a crop, Most all the ground was covered
by the shade, and you know that grass
that grows iu the shade aiu't half as sweet
as that which has tho sun.
"Wo went across the street and got sev
en two cent glasses of small beer, just to
wash the dust out of our throats; when we
all want back to the wagon and got in.-
Just then we saw a traiuiug company com
ing down tho street; the band was playing
Top goes tho wescl' like sixty. Dad
reined up tho boss and axed a man if the
Mexican war had broko out ag in. Tho
sassy coot, ho bust right out a laughing,
and says he :
" 'I gues-s you don't tako tho papers up
in your part of the couutry. do you?'
"Dad never answered him, and I would
n't if I'd been him ; ho just hit tho old
mure a clip with the whip and sung out,
"Whcu tho military company got closo
by tho wagon, tho musio put right into it
as loud as it could. The old inaro'e four
teen years old, but if you'd seen herprauco
you'd thought her a co't. Dad hollorcd
at her but sho only acted worso. Tho
foro wagon wheel struck something in tho
road, when tho old marc civo an awful
jump and Angcliuo and I, who wcro bittiug
on the back seat, went right out of tho
wagon kerslam. You sco tho seat tipped
back, aud wo wcro so heavy that over wo
went, light into tho mud. It was dry
enough out homo, but Ret declared that
sho saw a sprinkling pot goiug up tho
streets, drawu by a boss. For tho life of
mo I can't toll what thoy should do that for;
mud's bad enough when wo are obligod
to have it without waking it.
"It's a wonder that wo didn't break our
Kecks. Tho gala and dad wcro cenamost
scared to death, but tho folks that woro
looking on seemed mighty tickled about it.
Dad ho just spit out a littio of his mind
right on tho spot, and ho told them thoy
didn't know no bettor than to laugh at an
unfortunate fomalo's misfortunes 1
"I wouldn t have cared a snap if I had'
n't give my lu5c.au such a jam, Angelino
daubed her face all over mud, aud I went j
with her to a pump that was there on tho j
pari:, auu she washed Lor face. Dad ;
bought a cocoa nut and cracked it on tho
iron fenco that was around tho pasture.
After wo ato that up he axed us if wo didn't
want to sco a stoamboat. Of courso wo
said ycs;so he fastened tho hossgood and
strong, and wc started. 'Twas a
way to walk, but wo got there finally
'"Twas as pretty as a picturo', that
steamboat. It was right closo up to what
they called the dock, and there was a thing
made out of boards to walk on to it on.
Dad went fust, and wo gak follercd. I
toll yo it was furnished as nico inside as
Deacon Brown's parlor ; tho wood was
corved and golded. It was splendid, and
no mistake !
"What puzzled mo was were the folks
slept. Dad took us down stairs and show
ed us some little shelvcr all arouud tho
room ; and then wo all wcut down into
the kitchen. I told a nigger woman who
was there how to make some gingerbread;
for sho was housekeeper for tho steamboat,
and I thought I'd be doing a favor; but
tho pesky thing, sho grinned clear round
to her cars, and showed her teeth and
rolled up her eyes, and says she :
"I guess you'so from the rural districts?
"I never answered her, but kept right
straight after dad. He took us down into
the place in the basement of the steamboat
where they had their machinery and steam
arrangemcuts ; but they had such a big
fire down there, and was so pesky hot that
we soon left. We hadn't any moro than
got through the chambers of tho boat and
up into the parlor, then dad heard a man
say, 'Well, there goes the bell ; tho boat s
agoiu' to start '.'
" 'Cut sticks, gals,' said dad, and wc"
run with all our might, dad right closo af
ter us. Wo got across us gals tho
plank concern, and then turned round to
sec if dad was coming. They wore pull
ing the great plunk into the boat; dad
looked scared; ho ruu, and tho men who
wero pulling iu the plauk larfcd an hol
" 'Go it, country 1'
"Jest that minute there como a man
runniu ', pufiin' and blowin', trying to get
on tho boat aforo it left. IIo was in such
a pucker that ho 'bout knocked mo over.
Ho didn't sec dad ; they both sprung at
the same time tho man for the boat, and
dad for tho land. Plump they btruok
right agin each othor, and right dowu into
the briny deep they went. Dad said af
terwards that tho water tasted about as
much liko Csh or pork brine as anything
that he knowed on.
"Tho folks on tho boat, which was go
ing way off by this time, cheered just liko
a Fourth of July celebration, and tho poo
plo on tho shoro hollered and larfcd. I
was so mad that I could have slapped them
right in tho face, and says dad sputter
ing, kicking and splattering
' 'Laugh at a fellow's misfortuues .'
"JJut there was some real Kind men
they took some long poles with things kin
der shaped liko fish. hooks on tho ends
thoy called them boat hooks. Tho strango
man could swim, and ho swum and scram
bled up on to tho shoro, but them men
they hitched them ere hooks right into tho
slack of dad's trousers and drawed him
right out of tho water. Waru't ho a sight!
he looked just liko a cat that had becu
ducked into a mill-pond.
"Let's go'n' tako somcthin1, said tho
stranger, smiliii'; but dad looked as blue
as an indigo bag ; he didn't no what else
to iay so says he:
"Don't caro if I do.'
"Tho strango man wont ahead and wc
and dad followed him. Biuicby we come
to a placo where the lowor panes of tho
window whero whito, so you couldn't seo
through 'cm. Tbink's I that must bo a
great thing, that must. What's glass good
for if you can't look through it ? Dad
told us to wait outside, and ho and tho
strauger went in. Angelino and I stood
up on tip-too and pooped through tho up
per panes of tho window. Dad was drink
ing something poured out of a tumbler;
they seemed to bo on first rato tcrnn a
talkin' aud luughin'. Wo gals got cena
most tired to death waitin' out there.
Dad and tho Etraugcr kopt drinkin' and
drinkin more than a dozen times, aud then
dad como to tho door, and says he :
(C 'Oomo in gals and get some calm soup.
"So wo went in, and dad called on the
man that tended to fetch on his calm soup
for eight, and plenty of broth. Then the
etrango man got some sassaparilla for us
gals, aud some, of that other drink for
him and dad. By tho time wo got tho
sassaparilla swallowed 'twas beautiful to
drink, but as cold as if it had como out
0f tho north cast corner of tho North Polo
tho soup was ready aud all smoking hot;
but whilo wo'd been cobblin' our drink
down liko chickcus swallowing dough,
dad and the stranger had driuked two or
"Well, wo sot down to a table, and tho
way wc shoveled in tho soup was a caution.
After we'd finished dad told tho man to
fill cm up again, then ho and the stranger
took another drink. Well, after wo got
through, dad shook hands with tho stran
ger, and we started lo go back to tho park
where wc had left the old marc hitcliGd.
"Dad hadn't any more than got out of ;
tho door than he fell full leught right down
into thu dirt, which stuck all over his new
clothes. He got up and went on a few
feet further, and then down ho went again.
Angelino and I raised him, for wo were
afcerod that he might have hurt him. If
you'd believe it, the very first step be went
down head first; that kinder madded me,
and says I:
"'Hain't you big enough to walk?'
"Somo little boys began to snicker and
laugh, aud says dad, tryiu' to raise up.
" 'Larf at a feller's misfortin'I
" 'What's tho matter, dad V says I kin
der takin' pity on bin, for I thought tho
poor critter might be sick. He didn't say
anything, but kept a hiccuping.
" 'It's wind on his stummick,' said An
gcliuo. " 'Clams,' said dad, kinder mournfully .
"Now I'd always hcird tell that clams
were mighty unhealthy in the summer
season. 1 never knew tho symntons ot
colleray afore it's kinder curious how it
j wiH throw folks down. I thought the
best thing we could do was to 6troak it
back to the park aud cct homo with dad
just as soon as wo could, for 1 was afeared
though I didn't say anything to tho gals
about it that some of us would bo took.
I believe I should myself, if I hadn't been
so anxious 'bout dad and the rest on 'em.
"Angelino and I just pulled him up and
took him by the arm and walked along.
'Twas a dreadful tedious job, I toll ye,
pullin', hauliu' aud luggin' him along, and
wo got completely tuckered out by the time
we got to tho park.
"I don't know why folks should exult
at other folks' misfortunes, but everybody
that wc passed grinnod and laughed liko
monkeys, well, they say it's humau na
tur. "When wc got to tho park dad seemed
to foci considerable better. Wo sot him
down on the gras'i and let him lean back
against a trco, and then I w;nt and bought
a pint bottle full of good old cherry brau
dy, for 1 knowed it would bo good for
him. I took a swallow or so myself, and
then mado tho gals drink too, 'I ho rest
that was left I poured down dad's throat.
"Then wo unhitched tho old marc and
got ready to go homo. I told Angelino
to drive, and I would have dad set on tho
seat with mc. Tho gals all got in but An-
i gclino and me ; wo h'istcd dad up into
mo wagon, auu men we goi in.
" 'Just put tho old niaro over tho road,'
"Angelino hit her a whacking dip with
tho end of the lines. She'd been standing
there so long, and got so restless and un
easy, that sho givo an awful jump and sent
dad olean out of tho wagon, and almost
jerked my ncek off from my shoulders.
Angelino stoppod the niaro as soon as sho
could, aud wo piled out. Just then a man
with a blue coat all covered over with
brass buttons, just liko a military officer,
como up. IIo had a big star gilt just like
" 'What's the matter?' ho axed.
" 'Why, ho fell into the ocean off tho
steamboat, aud then ho ate two bowls of
calm soup, and 1 don't bcliovo it agreed
with his stummick.'
" 'What's ho drinked?' said he, kinder
laughing, hough I didn't seo anything to
" Somcthin' iu a tumbler,' answered
Jano Ann, taking tho words out of my
mouth and answering beforo I could speak.
" 'Yes, I should think so,' ho said, so
kinder impudent and uubelovin', and then,
says ho 'I'm a polico oflioer j I guess I'll
tako caro of him;1 aud ho roached out to
tako dad by tho coat collar, whcu I just
stepped up, aud says
" 'I rather rccon you wou'tl'
" Angelino and I lifted dad into tho
wagon, and wo hustled in ourselves and
started, taking care to got a going easy.
I don't belicvy the old marc ever did any
taller trottin' than she did then.
"Dad was the sickest crcatur' going
home I ever saw, and I don't seo why
mnrni was so mad with him when wo got
home; for my part, I felt mighty sorry
for him, and so did tho rest of us, I don't
know what's tho reason, but dad has nev
er been to tho city since, without martn's
boon with him, aud he's ato cl ama many
a time since and not been sick, as ho was

tueky to striko from thu confiscation bill
' that portion which authorizes tho Prosi-
dent to oaganize and employ negroes to
put down the rebellion, but was defeated.
In the House, Mr. Richardson of Illi
nois believes that the strcngt of the army
was sufficeut to put down rebellion, but the
indications were that another and inferior
race were to be armed and uniformed and
placed on an equality with tho whites.
The legislation of Congress is almost exclu
sively with regard to the negro. They
have abolished slavery here, and to the
contrabands rations are daily distributed.
Where is the evidence that rations arc is
sued to the poor whito people ? Supplies
at the rate of a hundred and forty four
thousaud dollars per annnm arc distribu
ted among the blacks, while the people of
Illinois are selling corn at eight cents per
bushel to pay the taxes thus imposed up
on them. Thoy wcro employing negro
teamsters and issuing supplies to negroes,

electricity from an ordinary thunder cloud

ted from clouds, or perhaps from tho air
itself, as in the caso of twilight. Mr.
Brooks, onef tho directors of the telegraph
