Select I'octni.
My days among the dead are passed ;
Around me I behold,
Where'er these casual eyes are cast,
The mighty minds of old ;
My never failing friends are they,
With whom I converse day by day.
With them I take delight in weal,
And seek relief in woe ;
And. while I understand and feel
How much to theui I owe.
My cheeks have often been bedewed
With tears of thoughtful gratitude.
My thoughts are with the dead ; with them
X live in long past years;
Their virtues love, their faults condemn,
Partake their hopes and fears;
And from their lessons seek and find
Instruction with an humble mind.
My hopes are with the dead; anon
My place with them will be.
And I with them will travel on
Through all futurity;
Yet leaving here a name I trust,
That will not perish in the dust.
"Seeing the Elephant."
Some years since, at one of the Philadel
phia theaters, a pageant was in rehearsal in
which it was necessary to have an elephant.
No elephant was to be had. The '"wild
Leasts' ' were all traveling, and the property
man, stage director and manager almost
contracted epilepsy when they thought ot
it. Jays passed in the hopeless task or try
ing to secure one ; but at last Yankee inge
nuity triumphed, as indeed it always does,
and an elcimaiitwas made to order, of wood,
skins, paint, and varnish. Thus far the
matter was all very well : but as yet thev
had found no means to make said combina
tion travel. Here again the geniuus of the
manager, the stage directors and property
man stuck out, and two ' "broths were duly
installed as lciis. Ned L. , one ut the true
and srenuine '"b'hoys," held the station of
fore-ies, and fur several nights he plaved
that heavy part to the entire satisfaction of
the managers and the delight or the audi
The part, however, was a very tediou
one, as the elephant was obliged to be on
the stage about an hour, and Ned was rath
er too fond of the bottle to remain so long
without "'wetting his whistle," so lie set his
wits to work to tind a way to carry a wee
drop with him. The eyes of the elephant
being made of two porter littles, with the
necks in, N'ed conceived the britlianti idea of
tilling t hem with good stuff. This he fully
carried out ; and elated with success, he
willingly undertook to play fbre-l'?gs again.
N ight came on the theater was densely
crowded with the denizens of the Quaker
city the music was played in the sweetest
strains the curtain rose and the play began.
Ned and the "hind-legs" marched upon the
stage.' The elephant was greeted with
round upon round of applause. The deco
rations and the trappings were gorgeous.
The elfphant and the prince seated upon
hi back were loudly cheered.
The play proceeded ; the elepliant was
inarched round and round upon the stage.
The fore-legs got dry, withdrew one of the
corks and treated the hind-legs, and then
drank the health to the audience in a bum
per of genuine tleplinnt-cye whiskey, a
brand, by the way, till then unknown. On
went the play, and on went Ned drinking.
The conclusion march was to be made the
signal was given, and ibr-legs staggered to
wards the front of the stage. The conduc
tor pulled the ears of the elephant to the
right the fore-legs staggered to the left.
The foot lights obstructed the way, and he
raised his foot and steppedfdunip into the
orchestra ( Down went the fore-legs on to
the leader's liddle ; over, of course, turned
the elephant, sending the prince and hind-
Jegs into the middle ot the pit. ihe mana
gers stood horror-struck ; the prince and
hind-legs lay confounded, the boxes in con
vulsions, the actors choking with laughter.
Poor Ned, casting orielook, a strange blend
ing of drunkenness, grief, and laughter, at
the scene, fled hastily out of the theatre,
closely followed by the leader with the wreck
of his fiddle, performing variou cut and
thrust motions in the air. The curtains
dropped on a scene behind the scenes. No
more pageant no more fore-legs but eve
rybody held their sides. Music, actors,
pit, boxes, and gallery, rushed from the
theatre shrieking between every breath,
Have yon seen the elephant " Hence the
origin of this popular interrogatory.
A Northern Stonewall Jackson.
One morning last week, says the Brooklyn,

Ogdensburcr, in this State, applied at the

Homicide in Johnstown.
The citizens of Johnstown where horrifi-
eu, on rnuay reouary :.otii ry the occur
rence of a shocking tragedy in their midst

the parties concerned bein old and influen
tial citizens. The particulars of the trage
dy are briefly these : Mr. Joseph Moore,
auctioneer of Johnstown, on his recent re
turn from nine month's service in the army,
ascertained that his domestic happiness had
been destroyed, it is alleged, by Mr. Jordan
Marbourg, a wealthy merchant of the town.
On hearing of the intimacy said to exist du
ring his absence, between Marbourg and Mrs,
Moore, who is represented as prepossessing
in appearance and of a gay and dashing dis
position, Moore called upon the former, and
after an explanation, told him he would
shoot hint. Mrs. Marbourg, hearing ot
Moore's threats appealed to him not to
take her husband's life, but the outraged
husband would not listen to her.
On Friday morning Moore arose ear
ly, and, leaving his house, visited a grocery
store near the Post-office, where he remain
ed until between eight and nine o'clock,
when Marbourg passed by. Moore started
out immediately, and caught Marbourg by
the collar, saying. liGet down on j our knees ;
I am going to kill you. My wife made a
'clean breast of it' last night. She told
me all, and gave me a portion of the money
which you paid her." Saying this, he drew
a revolver and fired the first shot taking
effect in the region of the heart Marbourg
fell forward, and Moore discharged two balls
into his head, and then fired a fourth, which
took effect in the left arm. Marbounr fell
over and almost instantly expired. Moore
walked to a magistrate's office, surrendered
himself and was committed to jail to await
the action ot the authorities.
The deceased man leaves a most estimable
wife and eight or nine children the oldest,

derer has a wife and one child, the latter a
promising boy of fifteen 3-ears.
The State "Canals.
The present Legislature lias obtained the
first official statement of the canals in Penn
sylvania. Although not complete, the re
cord is of importance. It shows that there
are about. 1,200 miles of canals in the State,
having no less than 750 locks ; and employ
ing in the asrcTeirate about 6,000 boats, the
greater portion of which are owned by pri
vate individuals.
Mr. O. Montcalm, late a leading com
missary under the rebel government, arrived
in Nashville a few days since, from Hunts-

upon investigation it appears that he had
taken the oath of amnesty, having come
voluntarily within the Federal lines for that

The Escape of Prisoners.
Over one hundred Union prisoners suc
ceeded in escaping from Libby prison about
two weeks since. A portion of them have
arrived at Washington, but many were re
captured by the rebels. 1 hey made their
escape by passing down a chimney into the
cellar and from thence by means of a tun
nel which they dug passing under a street
to a shed opposite the prison.
This escape of Union prisoner? from the
Libby Prison in Richmond is one of the fin
est episodes of the war. Nowhere in history
can a parallel be found for . such a general
jail delivery. To this exchange of prisoners
the Rebels can have no objections, as the ,
ghost of all their fears, General Butler, had
no visible hand in the matter. The escape,
of General Morgan and his companions is
east jn the shade by the exploit of Colonel
Streight and his gallant associates. Dig-,
ging tunnels is a game that both parties can
work at, and the Union prisoners have made '
the biggest and the longest, hole yet worked"
under ground in the '"Confederacx-." Our
soldiers have beaten them i t he field in ev-'
ery fair fight with anything like equal num
bers, and our prisoner? have beat them digging-
