KISS ME, PATHEE, EKE I DIE.
A.v Ixcidest of the Presevt War. An only
boy, whose mother had died in infancy, was
brought home to his father s house to die from
the effects of exposure in camp. On his death
bed bis constant petition was, whenever his father
approached him, "Kiss me, father, ere I die," and
down to the very last moment he clung to this re
quest, and finally died in his father's arms, ''as a
weary child going to sleep ':J
Dearest lather. I am going
To a brighter, better clime,
Soon my eyes will close forever.
Shutting out the things of time ;
Raise my head upon my pillow.
Let me feel that you are nigh ;
Press me to your aching bosom
Kiss mo, father, ere 1 die.
Father, I hare done my duty
In the camp and 'mid the strife.
Soon I'll seal my deep devotion
To my country with my life;
But it soothes my dying moments '
When I know that you are by ;
Put your loving arms about me
Kiss me, lather, ere I die
Kiss me, father, as you used to
In my childhood's happy day,
V hen I nestled in your bosom,
Ere your locks had turned to gray ;
Cast a loving glance upon mo
As within your arms I lie ;
I am going, God be .with you
Kiss me. father, ere 1 die.
Petroleum and "Whisky.
Thell the question of an extra tax on pe
troleum was before Congress, Mr. Stwlield,
of Pennsylvania, opposed the measure iu
several speeches in Committee of the whole,
and finally succeeded in having the tax
stricken otf. In the course of hia remarks
one amusing passage occurred between him
and Mr. Mai lory, of Kentucky, from which
we take the following extract :
Mu. Scofield "Do not tax the men who
belong to the idle, the loafer and the luxu
rious classes. Do not tax them, but if you
find anything within the range of taxation
to light tip a home ami make it cheerful,
place the tax upon it. Do not touch wine,
do not touch whisky, do not touch any
thing that affect-? the pockets of the wealthy.
But make the pour pay, who do not under
'stand their interests sufEviently to clamor
around the Committee of Ways and Means,
which stands up more obstinately for whis
ky than anything else. Tax all the poor
because they will not murmur at elections
and will not lc heard. I spoke here last
night a word or two in the interests of the
shanties that line the railroads of the coun
try, tho tsharities of the poor Irishmen that
vote fr yon, gentlemen. I want to make
thee humble homes a little more cheerful
at night. But yon have voted to tax them
thirty cents a gallon on the oil they consume ;
and now you will not impose a tax of ten
cents a gallon on the wine that reddens the
faces of half the members of this House."
When a man does work at hap-hazard he
generally repent of it. Takiug a size cn a
rule at random has spoiled many a fino piece
of work, and giving the handle oi a slide
rest on a lathe or planer a turn too much,
has been the means or throwing heavy m: sit
ing out of the center, biuatdiing the she.rs,
the slide rest itself, and very often the lite
plate of the lathe. The killiul aitiiao
shows his superiority in dealing gentlv .in
cautiously with his work, and it is oniy the
tyro that jumps to conclusions, and guc.es
where he ought to' be positive. All men
are liable to accident and mischance, none
more so than mechanics, upon whom derenos
a great deal at tie present time, but skill i .
needed, not sleight of hand, and sober f io
gress instead of the haste that make waste.
Xo couie-by-ehar.ee job can be a good one,
and there is no place where cool heads ate
more reriuired than in the workshop. Man
ual dextevity is a good thing, but that ucesj
not mean i ricks, legerdemain or capers cl
any sort. It is far better to take a rea. on
able time and do the job in hand well, than
to rattle it off "any how," and have it to co
over again. "
"Our Model Governor."
Under this heading, the Berks and
Schuylkill Jouriuil pays the following just
and truthful tribute . to the Governor of
Pennsylvania. It is not necessary for us to
add any word of our own to this compli
ment, because where Andrew (. Curtin is
personally known, his humanity ami gener
osity are tirinly established and admired.
The language of the Journal 'is as follows :
"Immediately ou the receipt of news that
the battle between Grant and Lee had com
menced, Gov. Curtin, accompanied by Sur
geon General King, hastened to Washing
ton to afford relief to our wounded Pennsyl
vania soldiers. lie had also taken the pre
caution, in anticipation of a fight, to secure
the services of a number of volunteer sur
geons in various parts of the State. At the
last accounts, the Governor and his medi
cal staif were at the front, and we have the
assurance that the Pennsylvania wounded
will receive every attention that their situa
tion demands. God bless the Governor and
his co-laborers in this good work."
Taxation in Canada. - '
The Canadian Minister of Finance has re
ported his annual budget. The imports
were $45,000,000 and the exports $41,000,
000. The duty on Canadian whisky haa
been raised from 1 5 to 30 cents per gallon.
A specific duty of 40 cents per gallon has
been laid on foreign whisk3', and an addi
tional duty of 15 cents on brandy, gin, rum,
cordials, wine and alcohol, to take effect to
day. The following is the duty on tobacco,
to take effect the 1st of Jnly : On caven
dish plug, &c, 10 cents ; snuff and cut to
bacco, 15 cents ; cigars, lowest, $2 ; highest,
$5 per thousand. : A stamp duty of 3 cents
per $100 has been imposed on notes, and 1
cent on bills of exchange. '

else. Soruedimes I sets mit misclf all day
on de front btoop und schmokes, und drinks
hard cider, und does noding else only drink;
den my vife she gifts me ter tyfel for drink
in so much, und says 1 vos petter go und see
after Jacob, our hired man, und not bodcr
my head mit more as I can understand. But
I tells her vat shall vomens know about war?
Better she goes und mindts her own pisness.
1 drubles myself more about Abraham as a
bout Jacob. N
Ven 1 gits tired mit drinkin on my own
stoop, I goes down to Hans Butter-bos' tav
ern, und I drinks dare, und I tells my opin
ion, and some oder von tells his opinion,
and we makes him out tosjedder. De od
der day begins de draft. Dat bodders me
again. Some goes in for de draft, mostly
dein as Is too olt. and von't be took dem-
self ; some goes agin de draft, mostly dem as
don,t vont to lick de rebils ; und some don't
know vich vay to goes, but ony goes round' t
and round' t, and gits boddered like dam so
as I do. v
But, nefer mind, I dinks I must find dis
ding out, und down I goes to IIan3 Butter
foos and hears de fellers bio. I don't make
nottin mit dat; dey all bios some odder vay,
und I don't dink day hat him rite in defe
own miudt. So I begins un 1 asks a quest
chun ; und I ses to Bill Pnffenstbock :
"Vot you dinks von de draft, dat it is
And ses Bill : "No, I dink3 it ish not
veil, I don't believes him, cause he sheat
ed once mit a plind mare he sella on me.
So I dries again und spheaks mit Fritr
"Fritz," I ses, "vot do you dinks von de
draft, if it's right or not ?"
And Fritz be ses dat he "Dinks it is shust
so as it ought to be."
But I don't beleves him neder, 'cause he
ruiid against me for de peace of shustice,
und dey make him de peace dat is de shus
tice. Und he ish no more goot for shquire
as my old cat. So I gifsup askin somebody
and makes him outjnyself. - I dinks in dis
stlvyle, de reason dey go mit de draft, is be
cos dey want sojers. Ef dey don't get no
sojers, den dey can't bring on de war. Ef
dey don't bring on de war, den dey don't
lick da rebils. Ef dey don't lick de rebils,
den de rebils licks dem. Ef de rebils licks
dem, den we all goes to ter tyfel. Dat's
pooty straight" So much.
Now I must dink of some more ; vot is
de next ding ? I dink dat's all rite ; but
now I sthops, someding else comes doe.
Let me sees. Oh, yes ; dry hundred dol
lars dat's de ding dey all bios about de
dry hundred dollars. I dinks so myself.
Dry hundred dollars don't lick de rebils no
more as dry hundred cents. Vot's de goot
mit dollars ? Petter a goot, shmart sojer,
like my Shorge.he licks de rebils more as
six hundred dollars, yes. Now I knows
more as Bill Pnffenstock und Fritz Hooken
sphlicer, both togedder. We want de so
jers. not de money. Dat's where de bodder
is, We putty soon makes money enufT; but
paper sojers is only goot mit wooden guns,
so when de draft comes, und ven men ses
here is dry hundred dollars, sthays bchindt
und doti't fight de rebils, den ef I vas de
draft I would take dat man by his breeches
uud I ses, go to der tyfel mit your dollars,
und come alone mit me like some odder man
as has got no dollars und don't like sojerin
so bad as not you do, den putt v soon I gits
so much sojers as I vants, dat s my idears.
I tells my olt woman ef dey drafts me I
goes myself. To be sure, I don't dink dey
vill, eaus I am more as fifty years ; but nef
er mindt. I t-hould go a long while like my
Shorgc, ony derc's two dings I don't like,
and de one is de mar shin und de udder is de
fitin. I sooner marches down to Hans But
terfoos und fiirhts der o. Ef Sheff Davis
comes dere on me I giffs him dam, you pet
ter had beleve : but ef I goes to Richmond,
may be Sheff Davis he gifs me dam. So
anyhow, I sthays home. De odder day, my
Shorge he comes back mit a furlow.
He is so much a corporal as ever he vas,
und I gifs you now what he sees :
"Shorge," I asks him, "you've bin mit
de rebels und mit Old Abe. und dese fellers,
vot you dinks about de draft dat all de boo
ples bios about ?" '
Und he sees to me : "O, tunder !"
Veil, dat's his opinions. Maybe he shall
know somedings too. lie's putty shmart
since he goes for a sojer. He shwares like
a man six foots high, und call mudeer "olt
woman, he calls me 'cap, und he kisses
de gals, und he calls Jacob "dam fool." I
dinks he gets some high oSis before de war
is gone. Gotlieb Klobberyoss.
Served the Sneaks Eight
During the progress of the blood' fights
in Virginia, that have covered our arms with
glory and vindicated the full power of the
Government to maintain its jusuuthority,a
large number of officer found their way to
the rear, and eventually reached Washing
ton city in safety, with the plea that they
had either suffered from coup de solid, or
had been slightly scratched in the Lach
The sneaking cowardice of these officers be
ing apparent, the Government at once or
dered them sill to be 'arrested on charges of
being absent from their commands without
orders. After a fair trial, they were found
guilty, reduced to the rcuiks, and at once
sent to the front, to Hglit tcith musket in
their hands by the side of better men. This
is what may be emphatically called war,
and if the Government would display a lit
tle of the same vigor to the sneaks who are
not in the service, except it is that of se
cretly serving the traitor foe, a good work
would be accomplished.

"Take me on your lap, papa. Now kiss
me like you used to do ; stroke my head
and call me your -ittle tet. . Why don't you
kiss me?. Don't you love Lizzie now? I
love you papa, O, ever so much, and when
mother cries when you are away, I. put my
arms around her neck and say, 'Lizzie loves
you, mamma,' and then ' she wipes the big
tears away and tells me, 'your papa once
told me that ; but I am afraid he has for
gotton it, for he doesn't seem to like homo
any more." ' ! '
"And, dear papa, sometimes her heart
beats so hard, I am afraid it will break.
Will it, papa ? What will . Lizzie do then
.hould mamma die? Arid what will you
do ?' ' .

"Do tell me, papa, for she coughed bo
hard yesterday; and she toldr me to je ever
kind to you if others did abuse you and call
you wicked names, for she said she was
sinking fast. What is that? Ain't that
goin to die, papa? Oh, do tell me 1" -:
"Now don't you cry ; there is a kiss for
you ; here, let me dry your face."
"Now let me down, papa. I will tell ma
ma to come. I didn't mean to make you'
sorry." - ...
"O, mother, my papa did kiss me like he
used to do, and hugged me too, and called
me his pretty dear; and (whisper) mamma,
on his knees he talked to God and said he
had been very wicked j but now he will try
to do his duty 1 . But my papa isn't wicked,
is he, mother?"
A Funny Argument.
The slave -owners and breeders who can
not resist the conviction that their favorite
institution is doomed to destruction, resort
to what we can only term as a funny argu
ment to prolong the life of the barbarism of
slavery for a few years. Recently- in a de
bate in Congress, Mr. Clay, cf Kentucky,
while attempting to break the force of the
heavy blows which Judge Kelly, was deal
ing the monster iniquity, declared that "the
northern men in charge of the freedm'en of
the South,' were actually defrauding ; the
negroes of half their earnings.'' Clay, in
tended the charge to be a crusher io aboli
tionism, but when the facts are fairly exam
ined, even that wrong (admitting for argu
ment's sake that it is perpetrated) is an im
provement to the negro. - Under the insti
tution of slavery, the negro was not only
robbed of all the proceeds of his labor, but
the issue of his body was made a marketa- 1
ble product to fill the pockets and provide
for the pleasures of his master. r Hence, the
improvement in the condition of the negro,
even if he is now robbed of half his labor.
