We saw her breathing faint and rfow,
At midiiishl still we wa'ched her.
The saddened voice spoke laml and low,
Ol the loved oue that was dying.
At early Spring she was called away.
To leave this world of sin
Amoiu the Ansel now sue'll stay,
The loved one that was dying.
Twas Sabbath morn at break of day,
When lovely Angels came
To take the prize ot death away
The loved oue that was dying.

And join my Iriends in Heaven,
My Mother dear. I leave below,

Mourn not of me Oh! weep no mora
For I ha1d happy be,

j few day's time." Having received this as
i surance I undertook the investigation.
"When he was gone and I had leisure, I
put the hairs under the microscope, and
soon discovered that they were taken from
the back of a Norway tat.
Two or three days afterwards, as I was
sitting in my consulting rcom, an old far
mer looking man wa ushered in. ' "Well,"
said he, "has thee looked at them hairs!"'
Yes," I answered, "and I find that they
are from the back of a Norway rat "
"Well." exclaimed he, "so they are. Thou
has forgotten me; but I have not forgotten
thee. Does thee recollect tne trial for mur-
jer al l assizes! I said I would prove
thee ; and so I haveTor them hairs came
from the back of a rat's skin my eon sent
me Lorn NoTWay." So the old gentleman
.was quite satisfied with the proof to which
he had put me, and I, as you may suppose,
was well pleased that ray skill and sagacity
had stood such a queer proof as this, and
more convinced me than ever of the value
of the microcope."
Here the doctor ended his story, which 1
have given as nearly as possible in his own
word, and onon which I believe that a
thorough dependence may be placed.

education as a farmer ! He is nursed in the
strong embrace of prolific, many ha Jed
Nature. Our mother Nature keeps the wis
est school, Great Nature rude, yet gentle ;
stern, yet kindly ; terrible, yet loving ; fru
gal, yet beautiful. We almost believe that
no men can be God's great men, ojless
nurtured in the strong embrace of our real
mother on the bosom of the earth.
All men should some time in their lives,
live in the midst of nature and till tbe soil.
He whb has been born and reared and who
lives in a cily, debarred the privilege of
communing with Nature, is most unfort?-
i.ate. He can never be a whole man. He
lacks the stern poetic teachings of this ,jreat
school. Nothing can compensate lor it.

that inspiration pays to one of the best

longest and most prosperous reigns. "Uz-

Democracy and the Enion.
As much as the Democratic party desire
to see an end put to this horrible and un
natural war, and peace again restored to
the country, it would not have our Govern
ment humble itself before an aimed rebel
lion, or accede to terms that would be dis
honorable, or in contravention to the Coii
stiiution upon which our institutions are
founded, merely for the sake of peace. W e
waul no peace short of a restoration of the
Union. Our flag mast again float over
every inch of our former territory, and be
honored and respected as in days past, be
fore the war can end. Let the war Je
pushed vigorously forward to attain that
end, and when that is accomplished, and
the friendship of the Union men of the
South regained and their confidence in the
Government reassured, the. war ought to
terminate and life and rroperty be spared.
Our Government should leave nothing un
done to reassure the Union men ol the
South that their rights under the Constitu
tion will not be trampled upon, Tor to them
it must look for aid in re-establishing the
Union and maintaining and administering
the laws when the war ends. We see how
well this is working iu Tennessee under
Hon. Andrew Johnson, and the tame good
results are manifesting themselves every
day, under the lead of Southren Union men
in other parts of the rebel States. Nobly
have the Union men of the South stood
side by side with the Democracy of the
North and batiled all through these trying
times for the Union, the whole Union and dAscin' thk Pokkr." Well, thar wasto

Thete's a little mischief maker,
That is stealing half our bli?s,
Sketching pictures in a dreamland,
Which are never seen in this;
Dashing from our lips the pleasure
Of the present while we sigh
You mav know this mischief-maker,
For bis name is "By and by."
He is sitting by our hearth-stones,
With his sly bewitching glance.
Whispering of the coming morrow,
As the social hours advance ;
Loitering 'mid our calm reflections,
Hiding lorms of beauty nigh,
He's a smooth deceitful fellow,
This enchanter, "By and by."
You may know him by his mincing,
By his careless, sportive air,
By his sly obtrusive presence
That is straying everywhere ;
By the trophies which he gathers.
Where his cheated victims lie
For a bold determined fellow,
Is the conquerer, ,:By and by."
When the calls of duty haunt us,
And ihe present seems to be
All of time that ever mortals
Snatch from long eternity ;
Then a fairy hand seems painting
Pictures on a d'stant sky,
For a cunning little artist,
Is the fairy, "By and by."
"By and by." the wind is singing
By snd by," the heart replies,
But ihe phantom ju6t before us,
Kre we grasp it, ever flies,
Lift not to the idle charmer.

were over, and that when next their souls

peculiar character, and, what ia more, ; this
character varies acco'diug to the part of ihe
body from which it is taken an important
circumstance, as will appear from my sto
ry, wbiih is this :
I once received a letter by post, contain
ing a lew hairs, with a reqnest that I should
examine them, and addiog that they would
be called for in a few days. Accordingly I
ubmi'ted the bair to the microscope, when
I discovered they were from a human eye
trow and bruised I made a note to this
.effect, and folded it with tbe hairs in an en
velope, ready for the person who had sent
them. In a few days a stranger called and
inquired whether I bad made ihe investiga
tion. "Oh, ye," I said, "there they are,
and yon will find them and their descrip
tion in tQis envelope," banding it to him
zl the fame time. He expressed himself
as being much obliged, and offered me a
fee, which, however, I declined, telling him
thai I could not think of taking anything for
bo small a matter.
-li turned out. however, of more conse
quence than I bad imagined, for within a
week I was served wilh a subpoena, to at
tend as a witness on a It ial for murder. This
svas very disagreeable, as I have said ; but
Ihee was no help for it now. The case
was this- A roan had been kilted by a
tlow on the eyebrow, and the hairs seut to
tne for examination bad been taken from a
hammer in the possession of the suspected
mur&exer. I was pot into the witness box
and wy testimony, 'that the hairs were
from the human eyebrow and had been
... bruwed," was just the link in the chain of
evidence which sufficed to convict the pris
oner. The jury, however, was not easily

Fashion kills more women than toil or

transgression to the laws of woman's na

all die around her, and the kitchen maid
is hearty and strong when the lady has to
be nursed like a sick baby. It is a sad
truth that lashioo pampered women are al
most worthless for all the great ends of hu
man life. They live for no great purpose
in life, they accomplish no worthy ends
They write no books, they set no rich ex
amples of virtue and womanly life. If they
rear children servants and nurses do it all,
save to conceive aud give them birth. And
when reared what are they! What do
they ever amount to bnt weaker scions of
