SCOBS SOT THE BEEDr.
Scorn not the poor and needy,
Whatever their lot may be ;
Their heart are pure and holy'
As ever thine mar be ;
And though dark sorrow' billows
Across (heir pathway roll;
Yet still they may keep sacred 9
Their nobleness of soal.
Scorn not the poor and needy.
Thou may'st not know the hour
When thou thyself may falter
Beneath want's mifchty power ;
And. therefore, if in sorrow
Tbou see' st a brother man,
Place not upon his prospects
An aristocratic ban. f . ,
Scorn not a fallen brother
Though deep in rice and sin ;
But strive to light love's fires.
Which are burning dim within;
And when to paths ot virtue,
ile shall return again, ' '
fij wife shall ever bless thee,
His children lisp thy name.
Then never scorn thy brother,
Whatever his lot inay'be,
The God who made and formed him.
Made, formed, and fashioned thee;
With him we all are tending
To realms of bliss above;
And, let os then white living,
Be filled with deeds of love.
BEWAEE OF PICKPOCKETS.
"Beware ot pickpockets, Joshua,"

son, when that interesting. youth was about
starting to visit his aunt Betsy Baker, who
Jived seventy-five miles off, in the village of
"IViu," responded Joshua dutifully,

snort of amazement, Mrs. llarler tore her-t-elf"
Joshua seated himself in the very middle
of the car he had heard it said that there
wa less danger there and holding the val
ine on his lap, he put one hand on -his watch
mil the other on his pocket book, and men-J
taiiy ueneu pickpockets. He had heard so
much about their dungs in the ars, that
he thought it wa3 impossible to use too
At the next station they took on a very
jiretty but decidedly neivous young lady in
a blue bonnet and pink dress. She paused
ie.siue Josnua and asked timidly
"Is this seat encaeefi?"
"No, r ot that know of," stammered Josh
ua, blushing .up to his hair. "Want to set
"Thank you," and she sat down so graee-
iuiiy tnat ner expansive crinoline spread en
tirely over Joshua's knees and valise, and
"Hupletely enveloped our hero in an ava
lauehe of flounces, shawl fringes, &c.
Both of the young people seemed very
nmeh frightened. Joshua began lo finger
nis pocket book nervou.-Iy, shitting it from
his pocket to his coat, from thence to his
et, and finally deposited it in his hat,
wishing at the same time that lie could drop
it in his boot
The young lady fidgeted, and eyed her
companion askance pulling her bonnet
striugs, and clutched the handle of her ret
icule. But after a fit tie while both seemed
'o get easier and Joshua screwed up courage
enoueh to say something.
"Fine day, murm." -

A dead silence. At last, with a desperate

eled Joshua, letting his hand rest on
back of her shawl, and feeling very
iuch as when Deacon Jones caught him
jobbing his pet pear tree. The young lady
La, you musn't do so, sir. It hain't

to his feet in terrible dismay, "taint there 1

glared at the young lady by his side, who
was now getting as excited as he was him
self, and was busy feeling in her pocket and
then in her reticule.
"You've got it," thundered he. 'T ort

1 he lady sprang ud her face red and her
eyes blazing she too had read the papers
and heard ot pickpockets.
An angry man is a fearful sight, but can t
compare with an angry woman. She bran
dished her narisol in one hand and her ret-
icule in the other.

"Don't believe a word she savs." cried
Josh. "She's lyin'. She's the one that's
been 8 tea! in . She picked my pocket of
everything there was in it. but my father's
watch and a plug of tobacker ; come search
her. Dear sufc ! I'm ashamed of mvself.
I was so startled that I couldn't cut mvown

wish inarm was here she'd kn w just what

and he began to climb over the seat.
"No you don't," screamed she, "not by a

shall. Con-duc-torl he's got Joe's minia
ture ! Do stop him."
By this time the whole car load of pas
sengers were aroused to the condition of
things, and as is natural in such case, there
was a division of opinion.. Some took 'sides j
with the woman and some with Josh.
Joshua's senses began to be slightly mud
dled. A half score of people were heading
him off, and that terrible young lady in a
pink dress was clingins to his coat skirts.
and his pocket book was gone. He felt
stand aside, every one of you, he cried
to thc;fassengers before hini, and just then
the cars nave a lurch, as thev are in the
habit of doing, and Josh went head first
against the stomach of a fat woman who
had risen to see what was the matter. The
woman went ever. Josh wnt over, so did
the young lady in pink, and the whole crowd
tell on a seat where a very loving: voune
couple and a lap dog were reposing. The
seat was squelched, so were the lovers and
the dog, and the cry arose faster and faster.
A collision.! there 8 a-cIJisio:
Everybody sprang to their feet and sereerl

he shook Joshua and ordered the young
woman to sit down and behave herself.
Jo.h took off his hat to scratch his head,
and lo ! out dropped his pocket book. Our
hero flung up both his hand in ecstasy.
"Hooray, it's found! Hail Columby, ain't
1 glad ! "
And about the same time the conductor
picked up a nondescript looking bag from
the floor. The young lady in pink rushed
forward, 'and seraing it, exclaimed, "My
pocket! my pocket! it must have slipped
off. O hain't I glad ! And Joe's pictur all
"Let's shake hands," said Joshua ap
proaching her, "I hain't a pickpocket and

desired to avoid this xUidsuuimer session,
l'hey passed the jMihury lieuoustruutioa
bills last Alarch. The Preside ut vetoed them
on the explicit ground that they made the
military commander supreme aud absolute
over the people of the ute rebellious States.
Congress accepted his construction ot them
and repassed them over his veto. They
were cordially endorsed by the loyal people
of the .North, aud acquiesced in more read
ily than had been expected by the people of
the South. Soon it became apparent, that
under them loyalty wouid triumph in moat
ot the Southern stales, and then the Pres
ident vetoed his owu veto, aud promulgated
dccisiou of the Attorney Ueueral that uu
der these laws the military commuudets
were mere policemen, subordinate to the
Provisional tiovernmeut over which they
had beeu placed ", the army but uponae cou

oath, must take care to have faithfully ex

tor having done too much iu its du&X legis
lation, and some having uoue loo utue : but
I think it has struck the golden mean, firm
and yet prudent, courageous without due
excitemei.t, inflexible and yet wise. The
President in his last veto denouuees this
military despotism, as he calls it, and de
clares that Congress has subjected the South
to a tyranny most intolerable. We have
heard these charges of military despotism
before, during the war, from the party which
so bitterly opposed his election three years
ago. Every act tending u strengtrheu the
Covernment, such as the suspeuMoe ot the
habeas corpus, trials by court martial, &c.;
was denounced as a military despotism ; but
the people rendered their verdict, aud it
could uot be reversed. Instead of tyranny,
the key-note of the Cougressioual policy is
protection to all, and the vindication aud
triumph of loyalty, and Cod helping us we
shall stand by it uutd it is crowned with tri
umph. I Applause. I I will use no word of
di.-respect toward the President.for although
differing wih him in policy as wide as the
poles, 1 respect the oihee which he tills, and
prefer argument to invective. When L lis
tened yesterday to Mr. M'Phersou, the
Clerk ot the House, as he read the bold and
defiant message of -the President, I could
not but feel that in the whole of it he ar
raigned himself far more than the Congress
which headdiessed. All parties agree that
he spoke correctly when, in his 2orth Car
olina proclamation ut' May, lii2, he declar
ed -that all the civil Governments ot the
South had been destroyed by the rebellion.
He then, without calling Congress together
went on with the work ot reconstruction in
the absence of all law upon the subject.
Has Congress luade&iate Governments sub
ordinate to the military power? So did the
President But he ordered conventions by
his executive- fiat, aud recognized their con
stitutions wihout their beiag submitted to

tfee registered voters, to call the Convention
themselves and then to approve or reject
their work by popular vote. (Applause.

In Fpeakinc of tha effect of the bountiful
harvest this year, the Pittsburg Gazette
says that it will rrobablv benefit Massar-hn-
setts and Pennsylvania more than Illinois
the manufacturer, the mechanic and labor
er more than the farmer. But when prices
recede throuirh abundance,the cost of carry
ing from - West to East does not recede
in a corresponding ratio if at all: the conse
quence will be that the farmers of Illinois
will have to be content with one half the
price for tha wheat or flour he produces,
which his factor gets in New York or Bos
ton. A few sueh harvests as this will teach
the farmers of the prairie States that their
true and only policy is to have the consu
mers of their syrpks produce near them.
In plain English, they will become converts
to the policy of protecting the manufactur
ing interests of the country, so that indus
tries of every kind shall fpring up amongst
them in all parts of the laud. There is too
much carrying done in the United States.
A minister once prayed in the pulpit tnat
"the lord would bless the congregation as
sembled,and that portion of it which was on
its way to church, and those who were at
home getting ready to come, and that, in
his infinite patience, he would grant the
benediction to those who reached the house
of God just in time for that" The congre
gation came on time atter tnat.
"Treason." savs Pendleton, late candi
date for Vice President, "is the protest of
liberty against tyranny. " Democratic brains
must be addled when they fail to hatch out
a better excuse for their support of the re

good epiurrara which would balance four

The inhabitants of a noted fever and ague
