The prcspirasion ran down his white fore

a loud stroke of his ratan on the desk.
The boy looked as though he would
faint. But tbe unmerciful teacher, confi

chastisement ho should now bo justified in
inflicting, kept working himself up to a
still greater and greater degree of passion.

I qjj nI)(j Httl Tim w , ft 5 k,
ciatcd infant who no one expected to live
many months To tbe surprise of all,
llowcvcri ,le poor ittc (-hild kept- alive,
j secin0(j l0 rccovcr ,;s health, as ho
certninly did his ttize and good look.
T j w5n to t.lo kincl offices of
eminent physician who had a country-scat
iii the neighborhood, and who had been
interested in the widow's little family. ,
Tim, tho physician said, might possibly .

uncertain. It was a mysterious and haf -
flinrr malady : and it would not bo won -

. parent health be suddenly taken away.
The poor widow was at first in a con
tinual ttate of uneasiness ; but several
years had now passed, and none of the
impending evils had fallen upon the boy's
head. His mother seemed confident that
ho would live, and bo a help and an honor
to old ago ; and the two struggled on to
gether, and enduring much of poverty and
discomfort without repining, each for the
Tim's pleasant disposition !ud made
him many friends iu the village, and
among the rest a farmer named Jones,
who with his eldest brother, worked a
large farm in the neighborhood on shares.
Jones very frequently made Tim a pres
ent of a bag of potatoes or corn, or some
garden vegetables, which he took from his
own stook ; but as bis partner was a par
simonious, hightcmpcrcd man and had of
ten said that Tim was an idle fellow, and
ought not to be helped because he did not
work, Jones goncrally mado his gifts in
such a manner that no one knew anything
about them, except himself and tho grate
ful kindness, It might bo too, that tho
widow was loath lo have it understood by
the neighbors th.it she received food from
any one ; for there ia often an excusable
prido iu people of her condition which
makes them shrink from boing considered
as objects of 'charity' 1.9 they would from
tbo severest pains. On the night in ques
tion, Tim had bocu told that Jones would
send (horn a bag of potatoes, and llio place
at which tboy were to bo wdittng for hitn
was fixed at Mr. Nichol's garden fence. I
It was this bag that, Tim had been seen
stagoring under, and which accuocd tho
nnliickv hoc to bo accused nnd convicted
by his teacher as a thcif. That teacher
was ono little fitted for his important and
rcsponaiblo office. Hasty to decide, and
and inflexibly ssverc. he was tho terror of

words, lie was feared by all for ftcrncss, been so for some time, for his eyes were
and loved by none. I would that he were
an isolate in.-tuiicc iu his profession.
The hour of grace had drawn to its
close, and the time approached at which
it was usual for l.ugare to give his school
a joyfully received dismission. Now aud
then one of the scholars would direct a
furtive glance at. Tim, sometimes in pity,
sometimes in iiiiliflercnce or inquiry.
They knew that be would havo no mercy
shown him, and though most of them loved
him, whipping was too common there to
exact much sympathy. Every inquiring
glance, however, rr niainod unsatisfied, for
at the cud of the hour, Tim remained with
his face completely hidden, and his head
bowed in his arms, precisely as he had
leaned himself when he firtt went to his
scat. Lugarc looked at tbe boy occasion
ally with a scswl which smccmed to bode
vungeaucc for his sullenncss. At 'cngth
the last class had been beard, aud the last
lesson recited, and Lugarc seated himsalf

'Now, Darker,' be said, 'we'll sottlc thai

Tim did not move. The sliool-room was
as still as the grave. Not a sound was to
be heard, except occasionally a long-drawn

he had been made of wood. Lugarc
shook with p.i.-sion. He sat still a minute,
as if considering the best way wreak his
vengeance. That minute, passed in death
like silence, was fearful ono to sonio of the
children, lor their faces whitened with
fright. It seemed, as it slowly dropped
away, like the minute which procedes the
climax of an exqui itely-performed tragedy
when some mighty master of the histrionic
art is trending tuc stage, nnu you and the
multitude around you are waitina with
stretched nerves aud suipeuded breath, in
expectation of the terrible catastrophe.
'Tim ii asleep, sir,' at length said one
of the boys who sat near him.
Lugarc, at this intelligence, allowed
his features to relax fr m their cxpresfion
nf orit'nrrn minor infn n cttuli. lint flu..1 until.-.
looked more malignant, if possible, than
his former scowls. H miwlik hi? tlmr lie

1,0JS- Tim, hero, is determined not to 1
worried in bis mind about a liitlo flogging,
for the thought of it can't even keep tho
little scoundrel awake.'
Lugarc smiled again as bo made the
last observation. Ho grasped his ratan
firmly, and descended from hti seat.
With lichl and stealthy stcp3 lie crossed
tbo room, and stood behind tho unlucky
sleeper. The boy was still a3 unconcious
of his impending punishment ns over.
He might be dreaming somc golden dream
of youth and pleasure; perhaps ho was
far away in the world of faucy, scoing
scenes and feeling duligbts, which cold re
ality never eau bestow. Lugarc liftod bis
ratan high over his head, and with truo and
expert aim which he had acquired by long
practice, brought it down ou Tim's back
with a force and wacking sound which
seemed sufficient to awake a freezing man
in his last lethargy. Quick aud fast, blow
followed blow,. Without waiting to see
tbo effect of the first cnt. tho brutal wroich
piled his instrument of torture first on one
side of tho boy's back, and then on the
other, and only stopped at the end ol two
or threo minutes from very weariness.
Dut otill Tim showed no sigus of motion ;
aud as lugarc, provskod at his Uopidity,
jorkcj away one of tho child's arms, on
which ho had been leaning over ou the
desk, his head oropped on tho board with
a dull sound, and, his laco turned up and
oxposcd to view. When Lugaro saw it,
ho stood like one taqusftxed. by u bnsilisk,
His coun.tcnauee turned to a leaden wbito
ncss ; the ratan dropped trnm bis grasp j
and his eyes, stretched wide open, glared
a at sonic monstrous spectacle of horror!
and death. The sweat started in great
nlobulcs seemingly from ovcry pore in '
his face ; bis skinny lips contracted, and j
showed his teeth , and when ho at length
stretched forth his arm, and with the cud
turned up, and his body wss quite cold.

success, thought they would have ono that

Aecordiug, arrangements were made and
the time appointed, some five or six weeks
subsequent as they thought it very nccos

nounced that they were going to have a
Union exhibition, and considered thoso
who were not willing to participate with
tlicni, as secessionists. Dut as the Demo- J den to do. We fully believe in tbo follow

with which the exersises were performod,

The bill passed by tbo last Congress is
the first conscription law enacted under

failed in a Congress composed of a" maj r
