On that deep retiring shore
Frequent pearls of beauty lie.
Where the passion wares of yore
Fiercely beat and mounted high;
Borrows that are aotrows still
Lose the bitter taate of woo :
Nothing' altogether ill
In the grieti of loog ago.
Tombs where lonely lore repines,
Ghostly tenements of tears.
Wear the look of happy shrines
- lhrough the golden mist of years.
'Death, to those who Jruft in good,
Vindicates his hardest blow.
Ob ! we would not. if we could
Wake the sleep of long ago. -
'though the doom of swift deay
Shocks the soul where life was strong,
Though for frailer hearts the day
Lingers sad and over long,
feci Ji the weight will find a leaven,
Still the spoiler's hand is slow,
While the future has its heaven
And the past its long ago.
Another Fiendish Murder.
On Monday evenin? March 16th, a most
diabolical murder was committed near Slei
line's Mills, ia Cecil towuship, Washington
county. About eight o'clock in the evening
three incarnate devils visited the house ot
Mr. David Sproul, and butchered hiui for
his money the paltry suiu of about one
hurdred and twenty dollars, and two silver
watches. A3 Mr. Sproul went out of his
do jt for eome purpose, ono oftlicse dev
ils stepped forward and asked him if he
could direct him to the nearest station on
the railroad. He said yes, and very obli
gingly went with the stranger along the lan
to a pair of bars near the barn, about 15
rodshom the house, to show him the way
across the fijlds to the pwnship road.
When they had gone about teu rods, the
two others came r'5und the corner of the
hou.e and followed at'tr. When at the
Lars they had knocked him down, aud prob
ably struck hint when down, as there is s
Inre pool of Llood there, and a consider
able quantity of hair sticking in the mud
close by it. They then led liitu back to
the house, ons supporting him on each
tiiJe. As lie entertd the door lie was bleed
ing profusely about the face, and said to
liis maiden sister (who is about fifty years
i' age, and the only persoo- living with him ),
"I am badly hurt." One of the villains
then seized her by the arm, took her out of
t!.o house, and around it into the other
Lmumj ; took her up stairs and tied her
lun Is-behind her ba-. k ; tied her feet to
C'.'rhor: laid her on the bed and stranned
h-r tijrht to the bedstead ; told her to tell
vi:ere the money was or he would shoot
her. Siie to'd him all she knew, and then
he we:it to work ransacking. This cue had

u:itii life was extinct. Then these two
Muck hearted fiends joined their black faced
brother in the search for money. They
then demanded hers. She said it was in
the house from which they had brought
htr. ('J he two bouses stand ten feet apart,
a roof between them). They went back to
the place ol murder, took her money, help
ed themselves to bread and cream, went to
the spring and washed, then left leaving
l;ss Sproul tied on the bed up stairs in
one house, and ti;e corpse of Mr. Sproul on
the floor in the other. Thus things remain

and there, 0 God ! Such a scene as met
her wondering gaze. As she entered the
wor, there lay the tongs, covered with
b;wd and hair. The chairs, the table, the
'lishes, the walls. a 11 sprinkled with blood,
anJ the door literal painted with it. From
the centre could be traced a channel of blood
to one end of the room, and there it stood,
gw-y heap, so lately the heart's blood ot
her brother. As she turned her eye to the

If- Jproul was a man sixty-five or seventy
years of age and in feeble Health. Any two
jiien of ordinary muscular strength could
nave tied h'mi without any risk of bodily
oarm. The only solution we can give is,
i.nat some one ot the party was known to
sproul, aud when they discovered that
act, the only alternative was, murder or
exposure. .
The safest plan hereafter will be to shoot
every stranger who comes to your door, be
tween the hours of dark and daylight.

Talmage on Dancing.
The following most eloqueut passage is
is from a sermon delivered by lie v. T. He
Witt Talmage, in his church in Philadel
phia, recently :
.1 come to-night to exhibit a group of what
might be termed the dissipations of the ball
room. They swing an awful scythe of death,
and are ministers to stand idly by and allow
this evil to go on without saying a word for
fear of trampling on the trail of some pop
ular vanity? The whirlpool of the ball
room draws down from to-day halt the life
and the moral worth of a city. In this
whirlwind of imported silks the existence of
multitudes goes out. Bodies and souls of
thousands are annually consumed in this
great conflagration of ribbons. They are
the abbettors of pride, the inciters to jeal
ousies, the sacrificial altars ot truth, and
tne avenues or lust.
The tread of this wild, indiscriminate,
heated midnight dance is daDgerous to the
purity of the hearthstones of a city. Phys
ical ruin is evident. What is to become of
those who work all day and dance all night?
A few years will turn them into coughing,
cadaverous, exhausted imbeciles. . In the
book of God, those who have given up mid
night to spiced wines, to hot liquors, and
ride home through the winter's cold un
wrapped from the elements, will be recorded
as suicides. There is but a short step from
the bali-room to the graveyard. A sepul-.
chral breath floats up amid the perfumes of
the ball-room, and the froth of Heath's Jip
bubbles in the champague.
Many of our brightest homes are being
desolated ; many ot them .have broken up
keeping house and gone to boarding in order
to devote themselves more exclusively to the
higher duties of the ball-room.
Farewell to books, to quiet culture, to all
the amenities of home. The father will, af
ter a while, go lower down into dissipation.
The son will be tossed about iri society a
nonentity. The daughter will elope with
some French dancing-master, and the moth
er, still trying to keep within the glitter
ing circle by every art, coaxes color to her
cheek and the wrinkles from her brow, at
tempting all the arts of the belle .without
success an aid flirt, a miserable butterfly
without wings. t
The first timer that you find one of the
faithful attendants at the bail-room sudden
ly engaged in home duties, let me know. I
would like to see such a one, go a great ways.
They have no home. Their children un
washed, the china closet upset, the furni
ture dirty, the house a scene of misrule, con
f usionv cheerlessness and dirt. You can al
most discover the sickening odor of un
washed, unclean, and unventilated apart
ments, even amid the witcheries of the do
mestic ball-room.
This gilded srhere is utterly bedwarCng
the intellect and soul. This constant study
of little things ; this harrowing anxiety
about dress ; this shoe-pinched, hair-flecked,
strange spectered group ; this shrivel
ing up of all man's moral dignity, until it is
no more discernable with the naked eye ;
This taking ot one's heart, that God meant
to be filled with all amenities, jnd paring it
until it is a heartless heart, lost ; this wrap
ping of all the mind in the griefs of a spot
ted cravat ; this trampling down of a sou'
that God meant for great upliftings, under
the feet of the ball-room dance.
I prophesy the spiritual ruin of all con
tinuous participants in this dissipation. For
the white-polished biads attending have
been once on the road to heaven, but the
flash of the ball-room chandelier lighted a
torch for eternity.
From the table spread at the close of that
besweated scone, who went home to say his
prayers? Who? Who went about with
acts of charity? Who? Who dressed the
wounds of the soldier? Wrho? 2sot one !
How .multitudes waste and lose their souls !
Alas ! to many this life is but a masque
rade ball. - As at such entertainments, gen
tlemen and ladies appear in dress as queens
and kings and clowns, and mountebauks.and
move to and fro in thorough disguise, so in
to this life all unclean passions move in dis
guise. Across the floor they trip merrih
1'he music throbs, diamonds glitter, lights
bubble, the foet bound, gemmed hands out
stretched clasp gemmed hands tinkling feet
respond to tinkling feet. On with the
dance ! Flash, and rustle, and laughter im
measurable ! But the languor of deatb
comes over the limbs and blurs the sight.
Light lowers! Music sadden3 into wail!
Lights lower ! Masquers can hardly be seen !
The fragrance of flowers is exchanged for
the sickening odors of garlands wrapped
long in the tomb ? A breath of air sweeps
through the hall ! The wreaths shake !
Lights lower! Sighs seem caught among
the curtains! Glasses shaken by solemn
thunders rattle loudly together ! The scarf
falls from the shoulders a shroud ! The
masks fall off, and to and fro on the slip
pery boards dances Heath : in glide jealous
ies, disappointments, dispair ! Torn leaves
and withered garlands halt bide the ulcered
feet! The stench of lampwicks almost
quench choking damp ! chilliness! feet
still! hands folded! voices hushed 1 eyes
shut ! Lights out !

A Child Devoured by Snakes.
The Oswego (N. Y.J Palladium of the
1 6th, inst, relates the following : "In the
early rart of Ausrust Inst a little mrl nomnl
Eliza Hrummond, about eleven years of age,
whose parents live near the town of West
Monroe, m this county, left her home one
morning tor the purpose of picking berries
and never returned. The most diligent
fjearcn was maae ior her by the parents and
neigriDors, uuc no traces could be found
The event, which created a nrofound sensa
tion at the time, had almost passed from the
minds of all save the stricken rateiits.when
it. was painiuiiy recalled Dy a recent occur
rence. On Tuesday last five or six lads wen
?i i ii it
out huntin'? in" the vicinity, and. during the
day, came upon a spot where a large num
ber of black snakes were discovered and kil
led. 1 he appearance of the reptiles in such
numbers, and at this season of the vear.was
considered remarkable, and it was suggested
by one wf the party that a breeding, den
must be somewhere near. A search was
immediately commenced, which resulted in
a manner far different from their expecta
tious. '
In the side of a little hill near the edce of
a swamp was found a sort of onenine.which.
In the summer, was concealed by fall grass
and bushes. In this opening was found a
human skeleton, from which every particle
of flesh had been taken. The bones were
as white as ivory, and all perfect. Near by
was a tin pan, iu a rusted condition, and a
tin cup. The boys were terribly frightened,
ana gave the alarm. .Ihe remains were ta
ken from the moutn of the den, -and an ex
amination showed that the place had been
and probably then was, a breeding place for
black snakes. Ihe boldest hesitated to en
ter. The entrance, which was larce enough
tor the . admission ot a man s bod. grew
smaller and tended downward. Lighted
balls of hay soaked in kerosene were thrown
into the cavity, and in Jess than fifteen min
utes eighty-two snakes, ranging in length
from one and a half to four feet wera killed
The pail and cup were recosrnized bv Mr.
and Mrs. Hrummond as those taken by their
child wherijShe went away for the last time.
The physicians pronounced the remains those
ot a female child, and there can bo no doubt
but that the poor little girl, while picking
berries in the vicinity of the spot, became
tired, seated herselt in the shade of the
opening to this horrid den, was attacked hy
the reptiles" in " numbers and killed. - Toe
discovery has shocked the whole community.
Tort Phil. Kearny Massacre.
The lifimhlican s St. Joseph special of
Maivh .'6th, gives the following account of
the fort 1, ml. lvearneyr massacre, derived
by the Commission from some of the Crow
Indians, who received it from the Sioux.
"The Sioux drew our men out ot the fort
and killed them. All our men fought like
tigers and could not have been mastered so
ea-ily had they not kept so closely together.
The combatants were so mixed up that the
Indians shot arrows and killed several of
their own party. The bravery of our bu
gler is much admired, he having killed sev
eral Indians by beating them on the head
with his buprle. They say there wore only
sixteen Sioux and four Cheyennes killed on
th-e field, but after they encamped ninoty
four warriors ,died of their vounds, and
three hundred others wounded, half of whom
they expected woukWiie. One big Sioux
Chief was among the killed. They mention
one man, on a white horse, who cut off an
Indian's head with a single stroke of, his
sabre, and they say that when reinforce
ments left for the battle-field, they, the In
dians,, left, having had enough fighting.
There were 2,200 Indians engaged in the
fight, and the strength of the concentrated
tribes is reported at 2,800 lodges, which are
now moving towards the Yellow Stone and
Missouri rivers.
Scdde.v Heath. On Thursday, March
Mrs: Joshua .Kankin, of North Strabane
township, Washington county, started with
her babe, a child five months old, to visit a
neighbor named Hixon, some quarter of a
mile distant. When she crossed the second
field froth her home, and was about to cros3
the fence, the child cried a little, and gave
signs of uneasiness. The mother paused a
moment at the fence, to give suckle to the
boy, after which it became quiet again.
Upon reaching the house of her friend, the
lady reached out her arms for the baby when
to her surprise and the almost frantic grief
of the mother it was found to he dead.. A
physician was called, who failed to discover
the cause of its sudden death but assuring
the mother, at the same time, that it had
not been smothered by a too close wrapping.
The name of the boy was Joseph Lawrence,
son of Joshua Rankin, Post Master at Beck's
Mills, Washington county.
