TO A WOUNDED SINGING BIRD.
-Poorsinger! hath the fowler's gun, "'' '
Or the sharp winter done thee feirm ? '
Wi'll lay tbee gently in the sun,-. . ' . "
And breathe on thee, and keep thee warm ;
Perhaps some human kindness still
May make amends for human ill. ' ' '
We'lltake thee in, and nurse thee well,
And save thee from the winter wild,
'T' ' Till rammer fall on field and dell,
- And thou shalt be our teather'd child ;
, And tell us all thy pain and wrong, "
When thou canst speak again in song. -
, - Fear not, nar tremble, little bird, ; f . ' j
We'll use thee kindly now ;
' And sure there's. in a friendly word .
An accent even thou should'st know j
' For kindness which the heart doth teach
Disdainetb all peculiar speech.
- 'Tis common to the bird and brute. '
To fallen man, to angel bright;
And sweeter 'tis than lonely lute
, . Heard in the air at night ;
Divine and universal tongue,
Whether by bird or 8piritsungV
But hark ! is that a souqd we hear
Come chirping from its throat,
Faint, short but weak and very clear,'
And like a little grateful note ? '
Another? ha! look where it lies,
It shivers, gasps is still, it dies.-
'Tis dead ! 'tis dead ! and all our eare '
Is useless.- Now, in vain -
The mother's woe doth pierce the air, '
Calling her nestling bird again !
All's vain; the singer's heart is cold,
Its eye is dim, its fortune told! -
A Hema'kablk Work. The New York
Tribuneof the22d has the following "The
Atlantic and Great Western llailway have
issued their bonds tor a loanot $30,000,000.
The work of issuing theiu has been complet
ed by John R. I'enn, Ei., of the eminent
firm of Culver, Penn & Co. ,' bankers, , the
trustee signine his name as an indorsement.
As there are 00.000 bonds of $500 each, we
may imaarioe Mr. l'enn had a vast work.
The trust is the largest ever held by any one
man, and the bonds the largest lot ever is
sued by ony one corporation in America.

making 540,000 letters. Estimating 400
signatures an hour as the average rate, it
would . take 4 o0 hours to-sign the whole
number. In some of the cowntry schools it
is considered a severe punishment to make
a ad write his name on his slate a hundred
timesTlfMr.Penns trust is the largest
held by any gentleman in America accord
ing to the-schoolmasterVlaw of retribution
he has suffered untold punishment."
. Emigration The emigration from Eu
rope to this country bids fair to be larger
this year, than ever before. . Already the
arrivals at New York are largely in excess of
the arrivals at this date last year, and the
tide has but just begun to set in. A- letter
from Frankfort-on-the-Main says the emi
gration from Europe to this country in 1866,
will reach at least 300,000 persons. The
disturbed state of Ireland, too, will necessa
rily drive crowds hither from that unquifk
region, so that we may naturally look tor
the largest accession to our- population ever
received in one year from Europe.
Hon. J. K. Moorehead. Many prom
inent men of Pittsburg have united in afor
mal request to this gentleman to consent to
be a candidate for re-election' to Congress
from the twenty-second district. They set
forth that his experience, peculiar know
ledge, and identification with the leading
business ierests of Allegheny county make
it important that he should continue at his
present post Indeed, the leading interests
of the State at large make it necessary that
our friends in the twenty-second Congres
sional district should continue to secure the
service of their faithful Representative.
Commercial Recklessness. The im
ports at New York last week were $3,500,
000, gold value, eqrtal to over ten million's
in currency! And this, too. at a time when
every warehouse in New York is groaning
under the weight of unsold foreign goods,
when the market is dull and declining, and
no one buys except to supply present wants.
Some people will get their fingers burned.

an article on the recent meeting of the Pro

winds up as follows : W e have no sympa

little for the Orangemen ; and we warn both
that they must not renew in this country,

The Springfield, 111. , Journal is pained to
notice that reports are coming up from va
rious parts of the State to the effect that
the wheat crop has sustained no inconsider
able damage from the freezings and thaw
ings of the past season. In f ome districts
the young wheat is reported as almost en
tirely frozen out, and that the coming crop
will be exceedingly light. The Illinois peach
crop is likely to be a failure.

'" ''; 60 to Church. ' ''
There is no one thing which helps to es
tablish a man's character and standing in so
ciety more than a regular attendance at
church, and a proper regard for the first
day of the week. . Every head of a family
should go to church as an example. Loung
ing on the streets and in bar-rooms is abom
inable, and deserves censure because it lays
the foundation for habits which ruin both
body and soul. Many a young man can
date the commencement of his dissipation
which made him a burden, to himself and
his friends, - and ' an object of pity in the
sight of' his enemies, to his Sunday de
bauchery.' Idleness is the mother of drunk
enness the Sabbath is generally an idle day,
therefore if it were not properly kept, it
were better struck out of existence. Go to
Church 1 If you are a yonng man just en
tered upon business, it will establish your
credit ! ' What capitalist would not sooner
entrust a new beginner who, instead of dis
sipating bis time, his character; and his
money, attended to his business on week
days, and on Sabbath appeared in the house
of God. .'Go to - church with a contrite
heart, and,' bending a knee at tho throne of
your maker, pour put a sincere thank-offering
for the mercies of the pas week.
A Fact. The difference between the Re
publican and Democratic parties in Penn
sylvania is no where tetter displayed than
in the treatment accorded to the feoldier by
the State Conventions of the two. Republi
can Convention nominates a gallant soldier
who served throughout the war ; the Demo
cratic Convention nominates a Copperhead,
without alloy, who voted as a member of the
State Senate against every measure intended
to benefit the soldier. The republican plat
form, too, demands an equalization of boun
ties, the meteingiout of amle justice to
the brave defenders of the nation, and a lib
eral provision tor the education and com
fort of the orphans of there who fell in
defence of their country ' while the Demo
cratic platform - indulges only in buncombe
talk, carefully avoiding all mention of specific
measures in behalf of our returned braves.
Just So. The treatment of European
emigrants by task-masters of the South is
not a whit better than that accorded to the
freedmen, and that is cruel enough.. Nearly
all the Germans and SwLss who went. South
last year to work for the old slaveholders
have returned, or are returning, disgusted
with' their experiment : A party of Ger
mans informed the Memphis Ivtt that they
were nearly starved during their stay on the
plantations, and on expressing dissatisfac
tion were discharged without receiving any
pay, lhis is the common complaiot of all,
and proves that the planters cannot be hon
est even with men of their own color.
i Cheap Bravery Mr. Clymer, in his
speech accepting the democratic nomination,
expressed his willingness to sacrifice his life,
"if need be," in "defending the Union."
He is very liberal with the offer of his life,
after the war. While the war was in pro
gress he was not as liberal even as Artemus
W ard, who was ready to sacrifice the last re
lation he had upon the alter of his country,
but did what he could to obstruct its prose
cution by keeping every man he could out
01 the array, tiis bravery now, when the
danger is over, is of a very cheap kind.

from John Minor Botts, . in the Richmond

Get off the Platform. The Demo
cratic platform was written by Benton Kerr,
and this fact was alluded to by Mr. Cessna
in his speech at the Republican Convention
in a way that seems to have stirred up Ben
ton's wrath. He said that according to
railroad rules "it is always dangerous to ride
on the platform of the. Kerr;" and that it
was nrobablv its slipperiness that compelled
them to put a climber (Clymer) on it
Gen. Meade. In giving the current ru
mors that Gen. Meade was offered A leave
of absence for three years if he would accept
the Democratic nomination for Governor.
it is due to that gentleman to add what has
been withheld of the original story, to wit :
That when the offer' was made the General
interposed two objections first, that his ac
ceptance would be illegal, and second, tluit
he did not train with that crowd.

QUOTATIONS TROM THE BEOORD. ;
What Senator Clymer Did when Actiiig
Under the Obligation of an Oath. ,
As the so-called Democratic editors have,
deemed it proper to open the gubernatorial
campaign by misrepresenting and slander
ing Gen. Geary and his supporters, they
certainly cannot object to our re-producing
the official record of their candidate, . Heis

the Legislative Record of $64,ijage 23, as
follows: . . ; .. .,.
