FEAT WOULLST THOU ASK?
0 heart, what would st thou ask of Tims?
Thy childhood's merry hoars mgaia ?
Thy yosth's delightful, golden clime ?
Thj later days of sun and rain?
Ah. no ' if onlj thou eooldat live
One moment of thy shadowed past,
bad Time the precious boon to give,
How aweet the calm at last !
One moment, to undo the deed
Of wrong oar wilful bands have dons ;
On moment to nproot the weed
That prospers in the baleful son ; '
One moment only, to recall
Unkindly words and idle sneers;
tiive this, 0 Time, and keep thou all
Thy atom of buried years
THE LOST DEEDS.
A parting glance around the office, to as
tire himself all desks, closets and iron safes
are properly secured for the night, and the
solicitor's confidential clerk locks up and
prepares for home. With coat buttoned to
the throat, and hat drawn over his eyes,
Mirk hd wards turns his steps toward home
and cheerfully faces the rough wind and
drizzling rain, which unmercifully pelt and
buffet him, as he vainly hails omnibus after
omnibus to receive the same answer "full."
But Mark makes no trouble of these out
door incouveniencies, for his mind's eye is
fixed on the well covered tea-table, bright
fire, and best of all, the pretty young wife
awaiting his return. The picture is so
pleasant that he breaks out in a line of
'"Ilome.Sweet Home," as he turns the cor
ner of the street where stands his own little
Mrs. Kdwirds is peering into the dark
ness through the folds of the muslin cur
tains, and has the door open before Mark's
hand touches the knocker.
"What a night for you? love !" says the
little matron, brushing the rain drops lroin
his bushy whiskers, and kissing him com
pauionately, "and how do you come to be
fo late? '
KJward looks up at the clock as he strug
gle out of his dripping coat. "I am late.

valuable deeds and securities, which will be

meanwhile, I have to copy one of them, but
I dWt feel inclined to !egin to-night.
Where can I place them with safety?"
Fanny supgested his desk, but thai is the
first article a burglar would be likely to
meddle with. Her cheek paled at the idea
of such a visitor, and she considers, "That
the old csvritoire in the spare bed room, will
not that do?"
Mark hesitates. "I had so many injunc
tions to be careful, and not let them get out
of my own possession, that I am afraid
cen of that."
Fanny reminds him that there is a secrei
drawer in it. "Don't you remember," she

"Ha! the very place!" So she carries

ror. "Tell me the truth, Fanny, my dear Fan

down stairs, and commenced to question
her. Where is her kev? On therms- it
has been out of her possession. Has she
been out? No. Is she sure of that?
Quite; besides, as she ventures to remind
him, the locks have not been forced, nor is
aught else missing, as would have been the
case if thieves had entered the house. In
uncontrollable agitation.the bewildered man
paces the room, while Fanny,unable to prof
fer advice, or assist him with any reasona
ble conjecture, watches hiiu in trembling si
lence. Suspicions are crowding upon his mind;

ny Huberts' brother, and regrets uttered.

young man like hiin, should lower himself
by such a connection. lie pauses, and de

erof hers to his house. That brother of
hcr ! What a speech ! All Fanny's sis
terly feelings wtffe iu arms, and yet she is
lorced to own that it was for the want of
money. "And you told him that I hud
thos papers in the house." She did not
n ention Mark's a flairs during their short
interview. Or if she did, would he steal
up stairs an rob his sister s home! Ridicu
lous ! Impossible!
"Impossible 1" says Mark, "Without he
has a key."
"It has not been out of my pocket," sobs
"Then where are the missing papers?"
Receiving f r a reply a torrent of tears
and protestations he flings himself on the
sofa, and tries to steady his nerves. Mean
while, Fanny gees and institutes an unavail
ing search in every box, cupboard, and
rawer. At last she returned to the parlor
in despair. Getting frightened at Mark's
gloomy looks, she is delighted when a tap
at thedoor announces a visitor, and the vis
itor, prove 1 to be her father.
To him the affair is cirou.nsta;itia!ly de
tailed, and Mark points out the inevitable
loss of his situation and good name if ho
should be unable to produce the paper or
give any clue which nrght lead to their dis
covery. To Fanny's dismay, he particu'ai ly
dwells upon her brother's visit and her half-
made endeavor to conceal it ; concluding by
an entreaty that she will, it retaining any
affections for her husband, tell all she knows.
But now the father interposes. To tame
ly hear both his children aecused of such a
crime is more .than irrascible temper will
endure, and he enters a counter accusation
that Mark has, for some unworthy end, re
moved the parcel himself. Words now be
came so hot and bitter that Fanny's distress
is increased, not lesscnd by this champion
ship, and she weeps so bitterly and pleads
so earnestly with both, that Mark, more
touched than he would like to confess, ab
ruptly leaves them to shut himself in his
chamber. After some hours, the sound of
his footsteps eeasing,the anxious wife creeps
softly up stairs, and is relieved to find him
lying on the bed in an uneasy slumber. Her
father persuades her to rest too, but poor
Fanny sinks her head on his shoulder, feel
ing more forlorn and inferable .ban it had
ever been her lol to feel before. What will
poor Mark do? What will become of her
if he persists in believing her guilty ?
Kqually bewildered, and almost as unhap
py as his daughter, Mr. Roberts tries to
soothe her ith promises, not only to seek
(i orge, and bring him to exculpate himself,
but to forgive Mark's hasty speeches, and
assist him in investigating this mysterious
affair. So, at last, Fanny begins to feel
more comforted, and wished her father to
leave her ; but he would not quit her in
such trouble, and they coutinued to occupy
the same position by the fire till night had
long given place to morning, and Mr. Rob
erts' eye closed involuntarily.
A footstep overhead startled them. "It
is only Mark," said Fanny. "Poor fellow,
I wish he had slept longer."
In the modern six-roomed house every
sound was distinctly audible,and they heard
him enter the chamber where stands the
shattered escritoire. After a short pause
he is heard slowly descending the stairs, and
his wife raises herself from her reclining po
sition, and smooths her disordered hair. As
he entered the room Mr. Roberts whispers :
"Look, child, look !" and Fanny sees with
astonishment that her husband is fast asleep,
and holds in one hand the bundle of old
Setting down his candle, Mark unlocks
the front of his large and well-filled book

he sees her eager fingers dragging Hume
and Smolett from their proud position to as
sume an inglorious one on the floor ; the
once treasured "Bcdle A.,semblee" are scat
tered in all directions, the highly prized
love letters receive similar usage ; and from
behind all the rest Fanny triumphantly take
out the small brown parcel, tied wnh a pink
tape, and sealed with the oRice seal. Cry

To-Day axd To-Moimow. To-day we
gather bright and beautiful flowers ; to-morrow
they are faded and dord. To-day a
wreath of leaves shade us; to-morrow, sere
and fallen, they crumple beneath our tread.
To day the earth is covered with a carpet of
green ; to morrow it is broken with the with
ered grass. To day the vigorous stalk only
bends before the g.ile ; to morrow, leafless
and sapless, a child may break the little stem.
To-day is ripened fruit and waving grain;
to-morrow the land is taking its Sabbath
after toil. To day we hear sweet songsters
of meadow and forest, the buzz of myriads
of instcts; to-morrow, breathe softly, all
noise is hushed and silent. To-day a stately
edifice, complete in finish and surroundings,
attracts the passer by ; to-morrow a heap of
ruins mark thj site. JTo-day there are cat
tle on a thousand hills ; to-morrow they may
fall in the slaughter. To-chy a man walks
forth in all the pride and joy of life; to
morrow he is gone. So "the fashions of the
world pass awfiy." Hut let Christ dwell
within us, and though we may pass away
like the faded leaf and sapless stalk, we shall
"arise to newness of life,"
"Where everlasting spring abides,
And never withering flowers."
What ave Owe to Decorum. "I will
do just as I please !" savs manv a hpad-
sfrongyoung man, "for whose business is it
if I choose to take the consequences?" Not
so fast, good sir. If you knew more of
human nature you would be aware that you
cannot outrage even the smallest conven
tionalities of life, which are known under
the common name of decorum, without in
juring your reputation, estranginir vour
friends and prevmiing strangers, who might
be useful to you, from making ycur acquaint
ance. Iut this is net all. ltju have no
right to disregard decorum, for the conse
quences roach others than yourself. Your
example is doing harm when it should be
doing good. Your conduct affects the stand
ing of your family ar.d associates, as well as
yourself. Going through lifo is like tread
ing a labnrynth of spring guns. If you fol
low the beaten track, you are yourself. But
f you diverge to the right or left, your in
discretion is sure to injure yourselfand u.av
harm others also. A wise man never out
rages decorum, recklessly violates prejudi
ces or thoughtlessly aets rcriardless of the
opinion of the world.

pint of wheat flour; then thin it with milk
to the consistency of drop cakes, and when

We are more afflicted by fancy than by
fact. To be supremely happy or miserable
we have only to imagine ourselves so. To
make the world a purgatory we have only to
think of its pains and privations ; to find it
a paradise we need but opeu our eyes to its
beauties and joys. A bad imagination keens
the soul in torment ; a good one surrounds
with clysiuni. The gulf that separates hell
from Heaven is often spanned by a dream,
and the worm becomes an angel by merely ;
using its wing.
The most perfect and powerful engines
make the least noise. Men who say most
generally do least, and those who make the
most clatter seldom bring anything to pass.

Philadelphia, October IS,
Republicans of J'eunsiIrania : Yesterday
you achieved i triumph at the polls scarcely
less important in its results than the victory
of arms on the field of Gettysburg. The
integrity of the Union and the perpetuity of
the Republic were secured by the one, its
permanent peace and future glory are insur

Your verd iet thus pronounced will be re
corded by the American people in November
next in a most emphatic condemnation of
the party false to the country in the hour of
its peril, false to liberty and the lights of
man. Every lover of peace and good order
congratulates you on your 'achievements in
stripping such an organization of all power
to inflict future injury on the country. Hence
forth it must sink under the same obloquy
that rests np..n the Tories of the Revolution
and the Federalits of the war of 112. En
trusted with power, it wielded it for the dis
memberment of the Republic. Confided in
by its devotees as the guardian of liberty, it
exerted ail its energies for the perpetuity of
human bondage. Professing reverence for
free speech . nd freedom of the press it si
lenced both with bowie knife and revolver
wherever it had supreme control. Assum
ing to be the guardian of the rights of man,
it became the champion ofrbuman bondage
and stood sentinel with baying blood hounds
to seize and return the fleeing fugitive, nnd
at last, dissatisfied with the result of a fair
election, it raised its hand against the life of
the Republic, and, Sampson-like, would
have buried itself in the ruins of the grand

Philadelphia, October 1(5, 1808. )
Comrades: You have turned the flank of
your old enemy, and he is in full retreat ;
but you must not pause for an instant in
your pursuit. 1'ollow mm up and press him
upon all sides, until he is politically annihi
lated, and Forrest and Wade Hampton have
surrendered in the last ditch. By the way
side you will find many heretofore misguided
men, who will gladly join your victorious
column. To all such you should extend the
hand of welcome, and forget the past.
Be not blinded by the declaration that the
opposition have given up the fight. Place
no reliance in rumors of a change of candi
dates. These things are simply weak inven
tions of the enemy, intended to induce you
to halt in your forward movement. Keep
up your organizations of "Boys in Blue."
Let them, infa t, be permanent institutions
u this generation. Let them continue, plo-
rions monuments of a noble fight, for which
your children's children shall hiess you.
Let your efforts be solely devoted to in
creasing the vote of last Tuesday, and by
this means demonstrate how overwhelming
would have been your triumph had the gang
of rebel vagabonds who invaded the city of
Philadelphia been required by their allies
at their own homes. By order of the Com

which candor adds to the greatness of heait.
hat is modesty ? Is it not a serisn of ex
cellence so deep and true that the observance
of duty appears a natural thing? Is it not
so sincere a desire for what is excellent,
that what is wanting is much more percep
tible than what is already obtained ? Is it
not so pure a love for what is good, that it
forgets the reward reserved for merit in the
approbation of others?
Of all the lessons that humanity has to
learn in life's schoo', the hardest is to learn
to wait. Not to wait with the folded hands
that claim life's prizes without previous ef
fort, but having struggled and crowned the
slow years with trial, sec no such result as
effort, seems to warrant nay, perhaps dis
aster instead. To stand firm at such a cris
is of existence, to preserve one's self poise
and self respect, not to lose hold or to relax
effort, thin is gTeatness, whether achieved
by man or woman whether the e3-e cf the
world notes it, or it is recorded in that book
which the light of eternity shall alone make
clear to the vision.
