GETTYSBURG, PA., FRIDAY .EVENING, JUNE2 O I,,• 1865.
[The following poem, by Wm. Pitt Palmer,
snys the Boston Waverly Magazine, was pro
nounced by one of the most eminent European
critics to be the finest production of the same
length in our language.]
From the quickened womb of the primal gloom
The stkp rolled black and bare,
Till I wofe him a vest for his Ethiop breast,
Of The threads of my golden hair ;
And when the broad tent of the firmament
Arose on its airy spars,
I pencilled the Ime t _of its matchless blue,
And spangled it round with stars.
I painted the flowers of the Eden bowers,
And their leaves of living green,
And mine were the dies in the sinless eyes
Of Eden's virgin queen ;
And when the Friend's art on her trustful heart
Bad thstened its mortal spell,
In the silvery sphere of the first-born tear
To the trembling earth I fell.
When the waves burst o'er a world accursed
Their work of wrath had sped.
And the Ark's lone few, the ified and true,
ClllllO forth among the deal.'
With the wondrous gleams ofmy braided beams,
1 bade their terrors cease,
As I wrottLou the roll of the storm's dark scroll
God's !_ . .t)v'eliguit of peace
Like it pall at rest nn a pulseless breast,
Night's funeral shadow slept,
Where shepherd swains on the Bethlehem plains
Th e ir lonely vigils kept.

A SCENE ON Till: STAGE,-- , SIIIIaII and
Kate Dennis were playing Romeo and
Juliet at the froy (N. Y.) Museum, a
few evenings since, when some of their
enemies began to hiss Kate. There was
great excitement, and angry exhibitions
were made between the partisans and op
ponents of the actresses, when Kate, who
was playing Juliet, burst into tears. This
turned the tide in her favor. At this
juncture Susan came upon the stage, mid
placing her arm about her sister's waist,
turned to the audience and exclaimed—
• „ What ha's my sister done? Who can
say anything against my sister? (X
voice—" Nobody.") That is so. Say
whatever you please in regard to me,
but do not abuse my sister. Don't cry
Katy—go on with your part. Nobody
has anything to say against you."
This happy melo-dramatie addenda was
greeted with "three times three," and
with a great effort Kate subdued her emo
tions and continued her performance.,

fifteen years whose rare beauty
strangely out of place in a criminal court.
A year ago she was the pride and hope of
her friends in Cambridge, and enjoyed
the esteem of a large circle of acquaintan

ruin. She was driven in disgrace from
the paternal roof—an outcast. Where

the grave were open to her. She hesita

forbidding, she entered a fashionable broth

Was her first appearance in the police
court ; there is a strong and painful pre
sumption that it will not boiler last. She
evidently felt the degradation keenly. A
light fine imposed upon her was kindly
paid by a friend, and she was permitted to
depart in peace. Who shall say that the

Now you have formed a society, and you have
a certain objeet in view; what is that object?
In looking over your constitution and by-laws
I•tind . the following ProYieions, • Which' will
fully explain the object of your association :---
"A' siok and disabled member; confined.' to
his bed; and requiring the attention of a nurse;
shall receive $3.50 a week; and if his disease
be of a less serious eharacter,.yet so as to in
capacitate him from following and prosecuting
his professional business; he shall receive
0.50 per week, Which alhiwance is to con
tinuo until he is restored to "health, or un
til he dice. In case of hitt death tbe associa
tion shall pity to his widow oe.rolutivea $25,
for add towards his decent interment, 'mid at

an extra contribution of 25 eta., which shall
be given to the widoW. If the eceased was a
widower end leave minor children, then the 25
cents'extre' is to be paid to the guardian of
said children. Should the deceased member
be au unmarried man then the members shall
pity at the next regular meeting 123 eta, each
which is to go to the widow 01' children of such
deceased members as a committee appointed
for that purpose shall deem fit. If the wife of
a member-die, such member shall receive $l5
towards her interment. If any member shall
'be 'disabled by reason of old age, bodily infir
.mity, casualty, or become mentally deranged.
hi shnll receive $2.50 per week during such
disability or affliction. In ease of the sickness
of amenilem, confined to bed, a committee is
appointed to sit up , with him, and attend to
his wants." From theie and similar expecte
miens in your &JIM tItU does and tiy-laWmt it. is

upon benevolence, mutual support, friendship,
