How many sheep are straying,
Lost front the Saviour's told ;
Upon the lonely mountain
They shiver with the cold ;
Within the tangled thickets, :
Where poison vines do creep,
And orer rocky ledges
Wander the poor lost sheep. ;
Oh, who will gd to find thenai ?
Who, for the Saviour's sake, .
Will search with tireless patienee
Through briar and through brake?
Unheeding thirst and hunger,
Who still from day to day, '
Will seek as for a treasure
The sheep that go astray ?
Say, will you seek to find them ?
From pleasant bowers of ease,
Will you go forth determined ' '
To find the ' least of these ?"
Fer still the Sariour calls them,
And looks across the world;
And still he holds wide open :' -The

Hospitality Among Lions. "I have
been assured," says Chenierin his "Present
itate of Morocco' "that a Brebe who went
out to hunt the lion, having proceeded far
into a forest, happened to meet with two
lion s whelps that came to caress him. The
hunter stopped with the little animals, and,
waiting for the coming of the sire or the
daui, took out his breakfast and cave them
a part. The lioness arrived un perceived by
tne huntsman-, so that he had not time, or
perhaps wanted the courage, to take his
gun. After having for some time looked at
the nian who was thus feasting her young,
the lioness went away, and soon after return
ed, bearint a sheep, which she laid at the
uuuwiuau sieeu iuu ueix me one 01 ine
family, took this occasion of making a good
meal, skinned the sheep, made a fire and
roasted a part, giving the entrails to the
young. The lion came also, and, as if re
specting the rights of hospitality, showed
no tokens of '' ferocity: Their guest the
nut dayr having finished his provisions, re
turned, and came to the resolution never
more to kill those animals, the noble gene
rosity of which he had so fully proved. lie
caressed the whelps at taking leave of them
and the dam and sire accompanied him till
he was safely out of .the forest." :

could the managers of the Democratic party
nave oeen sagacious enough to perceive it,
there w a chance of restoring tie old party
under a new name.
As it is, the Democratic nartv is an organ
ization of opposition upon a principle which
wnouy reverses the course of reconstruction,
repudiates the theory of the war, and leaves
every great national question unsettled.
I he Democratic) policy is to treat the States
exactly as it nothing had hannened but
riot ; it has been suppressed, and that is the
euu oi it. noinmff more puerile can be con
ceived than such a view of the situation.
It is a statesmanship which omils all the
facts. It is a folly - which finds no si?nifi
ca".ce in the terrible words spoken to a king :
"Sire, it is a revolution " And until the
mind of the country is utterlv confused no
such party can hope for restoration to pow
er, except by some chance of an alliance
with a vote at the South unfriendly to the
uovernment arid the Union.

the sympathy with the utterlv un-American
spirit which has so long ruled the society of

where, as in the New York Convention, it
appeals and panders to a hostility of 1 ace
which can lead to nothing but evil when the

ocrats ot character and position serve an
imaginary public which demands the sacri
fice ot liberty or justice : or, knowing their
constituents, they stultify themselves bv
yielding to an ignoble prejudice. Could
they once cast this kind of subserviency
aside we could hope tor a sudden restoration
ot uuiversal prosperity.
As it is, however, the better men are in
fear of the worst. The demagogues, who
have no object but personal advantage at nil
hazards, would instantly expose to the in
dignation of ignorance a man who took high
ground and soutrht to plant the party unon
it. And from this springs one of the chief
perils of our politics. J? or when the intelli
gent and catholic consciously defer to the
dictation of the ignorant and passionate the
uovernment becomes essentially base in it
self and humiliating to everv honorable cit
izen. Nothing is more certain than the in
timate relation between morals and politics.
As the sense of a moral law dies out of the
mind of legislators the State approaches an
archy. Yet, if legislation is to be dictated
by the worst part of the population and by
the worst feelings, how long can we hope
that morality Will linger in politics f
Now, there is this essential difference be
tween the two great parties in this country,
tne one has the inspiration ot the moral sen
timent and the other has not. We do not
mean that all Republicans are good men. or
all Democrats bad men : but we do mean,
as we have said before, that the tendency
ot the Itepublican party is to lift its worst
members up to its best principles, while that
ot the Democratic party is to drag Us best
men aown to a wretched policy. inia is
unavoidable, but it is undeniable. Thus
the I emocratic policy for a generation may
have been interpreted by its wisest and sin
cerest men as merely State-rights, while
the Democratic rallying-crv has been. ' 'Down
with the nigger !" On the other hand, the
reproach incessantly urged against the Re
publican party Dy the most acrimoniou,
Democratic journals, is that it was really led
by the extreme radicals. Uut surely, even
it this should lead to the cry of "Up with
the nigger ! which is the more inviting of
the. two cries to an intelligent and generous
man ? Is society, in this country, likely to
be more benefitted by a feeling and a policy
that degrade or that elevate any class in the
community 1
So long as the Democratic party cling to
the old issues they are chained to a corpse,

Peculiarity of Scottish Idiom. There

to English ears by the use of Scottish terms,
which took place in the house of Peers dur

dered into English,' meant to describe the

Thrilling Encounter with Black Snakes.
Prof. J. Mitchell, the celebrated "South
Mountain ' Wizard," says the Boonsboro
(Md.) Odd Fellow, while out eunniner re-
; cently, had a most thrilling adventure with
a aen ot Dlaclc snakes, known as "racers.
' . - .
it urn wnicn ne narrowly escaped with his
lite. As is his habit, the Professor had ta
ken his lavorite carbine" and cone into the
mountain after squirrels. The best part of
me, iorenoon had been spent in beating
inrougn the brush and over the rocks with
out meeting with any adventure, and but
ordinary success in procuring game. Sud
denly, however, he came to a ledge of rocks,
about a mile from the South Mountain
House. Estopping a moment to take a sur
vcy of the surroundings, he saw. a large
black snake stretched out on a rock sunning
himself. . lie at once took up a couple of
stones and threw one at his snakeship, but
unionunaieiy niissea mm. a his aroused
the snake, and in an instant he uncoiled
himself, and stood with his head erect, as if
inuignani at tins intrusion, and at the same
time he gave loud, shrill hiss, or rather a
whistle, The Professor delivered his sec
ond stone with such precision as to mortally
wound his enemy. No sooner, however,
had he thrown the stone than he heard a
rustling among the brush to his left, and
another whistle louder and shriller than the
firsts Turning his eve in the direction from
whence came the noise, he saw a monstrous
black snake (a racer) coming directly to
wards him, with head erected about five feet
from the ground, and his forked tongue
darting from his distended jaws as if bent
on fight .
The Professor, who is an acknowledged
crack shot, immediately raised his carbine,
fared, and had the proud satisfaction of see
ing the monster snake roll over in the ago
nies of death having his head split ooen
with the ball. This proved but the com
mencement of the battle : before the Pro
fessor had time to congratulate himself upon
his success in vanquishing two of his foes,
a third one, measuring about eleven feet in
length, and thick in proportion, had ap-
Sroached to within a few feet, of him, his
ead erect, hissing and darting his tongue
out in a manner to appal the stoutest heart.
To retreat was out of the question, a fight
was the only alternative, and quick as
thought he leveled his carbine at the snake's '
bead, but, unfortunately, missed .lt at; ther
ooiiiB uiuo uiuiiuiiiK 111a caruiiit; . uiiuii lilt;
ground. With the rapidity of lightning
the black snake attacked the Professor, and
commenced winding his slimy coils around
bis -legs and body, tighter and - tighter at
every coil of his loathesome form, until the
Professor was unable to move a foot.
His efforts to extricate himself from the
"ciils of death" as they seemed to be
were unavailing, for with every effort the
folds lightened, and the work of respiration
became difficult. Death and the snake
stared him in the face, and made cold chills
of horror and agony creep over his body.
t was a fearful moment a moment of the
most intense horror and agony, that made
the flesh creep, the bluod chill, and the hair
literally "stand on end, like nuills upon a
fretful porcupine." Nothing but his great
fresence of mind saved him from strangu
ation and a loathesomo death, llcoollect
ing that his hunting knife hung by his side,
he seized it, and with his nerves braced by
despair, drew it across the body of the snake,
severing. it at a stroke. The coils relaxed,
the snake dropped at his feet, and the Pro
fessor was free again.
liy this time he heard a great rustling in
the bushes, and the dry bark crackling in
every direction, accompanied by loud, shrill,
angry hisses aud whistling, as if the whole
surrounding woods were filled with snakes.
Deeming discretion the better part of valor,
he hastily grabbed up his carbine, girthed
his hunting knife, and beat a precipitate re
treat. The Professor was pursued by the
black snakes for some distance, but being in
a hurry he had no time to look back and
count the numbers. He says that had they
come one at a time he would not have re
treated, but to attack him by companies,
brigades and divisions, was enough to fright
en any man.
Two Sundays Every Week.
The United States ot America always was
"the greatest nation in creation," as every
body who has listened to a Fourth of J uly
oration, well knows. But since our annexa
tion of the Russian possessions, we've taken
one step ahead. Other, and less happy,
great and powerful nations have their pecu
liar points of which to boast' England brags
that the sun never sets on her flag ; France
that her eagles have flown in every capital
of Europe. But the United States can now
boast of the most wonderful fact of all a
fact that no other nation can ever approach,
and may not hope to rival. We have now
in this happy Republic, two Sundays every
week, as now may be seen by the follow
ing extract from Mr. Sumner's pamphlet of
our hew Russian purchase : 'As the settle
ment of this coast caine eastward from Rus
sia,, bringing -with the Russia flag western
time, the day i9 earlier by twenty-fours with
them than with us, so that their Sunday is
our Saturday, and the other days of the
week are in corresponding discord. This
must be rectified according to the national
meridian, so that there shall be the same
Sunday for all, and the other days of the
week shall be iircorresponding harmony.
Singular Test. There is a curious or
deal in India, which shows the action of
fear upon the salivary gland. If a wrong
is committed the suspected persons are got
together, and each is required to keep.a
quanity of rice in his mouth for a certain
time, and then put it out again; and, with
the greatest certainty,' the man who had
done the deeds puts it out almost dry, m
consequence of the fear of his mind keeping
back the saliva. ; ,

Here We Comr There was a wedding
in a church in a village near Chicago, re
cently, which was attended by a crowd of
people, the bride being a famous belle in
the section, and the bridegroom a late offi
cer. There is a story about him that was
revived with great effect at the wedding.
He was in the western frontier service, and
one day (so the story goes) he went out to
hunt a bear. He had been away from camp
a few hours, when his voice was heard faint
ly in the distance, exclaiming :
"U-e-r-e toe come!"
In a little time the same cry was heard
agaih, but nearer ; then it was repeated at
intervals, hearer and londer ; then finally
the bold captain emerged from a bit of
woods near the camp, running at the top of
his speed, without a coat, hat or gun. In
he came to the camp, shouting :
"Here we come."
"Here who comes ?'A inquired a brother
"Why ine and the game," gasped the
officer, pointing to a big bear who showed
himself at the edge of the woods, took, a
look at the camp, and then, with a growl at
missing his expected meal off the captain,
disappeared in the woods again.
"But why didn't you shoot the bear, and
then bring him in?" inquired one.
"What's the use in shooting your game, "
said the captain, testily, "when you can
bring it in alive, as I did ?"
The story got home before the captain did
and was in everybody's mouth. The other
night, as the bold captain led his intended
bride into the church with pride and grace
so readily inspired by the occasion, some
wicked wag sang out from the gallery :
e-r-e we come
Which was followed by such a shout of
laughter as theold church never knew before.
