THE OLD BAEN.
Rickety, old and crazy,
Shinglelcss, lacking toino doors ;
Bad in the upper story,
Wanting boards iu the floors;
Beimi strong thick with cobwebs,
Kidepole yellow and gray,
Hanging in helpless innocence
titer the mows of bay.
How the winds turned around it-"-
Winds of a stormy day
t-catuiiLg the fragrant hay sied,
Whisking the straws away ;
Stream icg in at the crannies,
Spreading the clover smell.
Charging the dark old gracery
Into a flowery dell.
O, how I loved the shadows,
That clu! to the si ent roof.
Day dreams uove with the quiet,
Many . glittering woof;
I ciiniLcd to the highest rafters,
Ai.J wauLcd the swallows at play,
Admired ilie knots in the toardinj,
And ro'.itd in Ibc billows of hay.
Palace ol king couldu't match it,
The Vatican lusts its charm
"When placed in my memory's balance,
Reside to old gray barn !
.And I d rather scent the clover,
Piled in the barn's roomy mows,
Than sit in the breath of the highlands
Poured from Appenine brows!
THE SWEET STOSY OF SILVE2HAI2.
A long tiitietago two little children were
born ou tLe same night ; Lut Arthur came
to live iu a beautiful houe, a Da Rosa in a
little eottairc. There was a greater and
sadder difference between the .hilJren than
this ; lor it matters very little to the happi
uess of a child whether it lives iu a pulax-c or
a cottage, if only that palace or that cottage
be a home of love : but Arthur could see
ail the beauty that surrounded hiiu, while
Rump, poor Rosa, was a blind child.
As she .rew up to be a little girl, no one
merely tteiiig her with her gt)l;leu hair, ami
lirge soft blue eyes, silting iu the cottage
porch, woaM have said, '"There is a blind
child ;" but when the rose, you saw an un
certain expression come over her face, till
the bark of a pretty little terrier told her he
was ready to be her guide, and .stooping
down, the took hold of a cord that was fas
teiieii round his neck.
She called Lit.i .SiU-
.ir, LiM.vu.se some
one told her his
long ilkv haii .-hone like
salver : am. sue had uiien. wonue.ea wl.at
that meant. Ro-a was a gentle, good, and
happy child, in epite ol this great shadow
over her life. Arthur, in the meantime,
with every desire gratified, everything to
ltir.ke life pleasant around him, cried often
l'mui morning tj uight, and was fast becom
i.ir a selSsh, discontented boy.
One bright May morning. Master Arthur
s' t forth on his pony, accompanied by John,
the sevant, who usually attended him. As
they cantered along toward the village, Sil
ver h m i r, who was out on Lis own account,
crossed their rath.
"John, John," eried Arthur, "do you
see that beautiful terrier?"
"Ves, Master Arthur, I've seen it often,"
''Have you? Then you know who it be
longst to, and I must have it," said Arthur.
"You inu.it get me it this very night."
The man looked annoyed.
"Indeed, master," he said, "you needn't
send me f' r that dog. It belongs to little
Rosa Mitchell ; and her father will not sell
it to you."
"Why not?"su.l Arthur. "Tell him
p:i; a will give twenty dollars for it, and
another dog into the bargain, that will do
as well for R..n. She cannot see what it
is like," ad led the seifi-h boy.
J. l.n could by no means get this new
idea out of his young master's head ; so in
. the evciiing he went ui"ju his unwelcome

expected, they would

they think they cou.d bribe us to .-jil you ? '
and SLIv.rhair wagcd his tail, and licked
her hand, as if to thank i:er;aiido they
thought the matter settled.
When Arthur, next mining, found he
could not get the d jg, lu first got into a
ration- f .issijn with John, and then declared
lie would eat nothing tiii he got the dog.
His fooli.-h mother sent another messenger
to the cottage. wi:h no better success; and j
Arthur, secretly rejoicing at the annoranee I
lie gave, persisted in refusing all food during
the day. Being really a delicate child, he
had almost cried himsclt it,;,, a fever. Wheti
all the household, excepting her.-.lf and
Mr. Stenhouse, had gone tj rest, his ne.fh
er heard screams from Ar'.hur's room. Has
tening in, the passionate little boy called
"I must have food. Mamma. I am dying
of hunger. I have run and rung for John;
but lie does not come."
"John is asleep," replied Mrs. Stenhouse;
"and we need not disturb him. I made
Ratify leave some chicken and a plate of
jelly in the dining-room, in case my little
darling wished it."
And without waiting his answer, this too
indulgent mother hastened away for the
food. But Master Arthur had not yet tuf-lii-iernly
vented his ill humor. Xo sooner
lie! Le return tuau he scie&.ued :
"I won't have that nJty cold trash 1
s ni'ist make me a steak, or a chop, or
ing warm. I t-!I you f won't eat
"You shall, sir," said the stern voice of
liia father. "There has been enough of
this nonsense. I will not let you tyrannize
over your mother and the whole household
any longer. This day has shown me what
all this indulgence leads to ; and I shall see
that there is no more of it. Come away,
my dear," he added, to his wife, "and leave
this wayward child ; and Arthur, let me tell
you that you shall have no food of any de
scription until this is finished.
The spoiled child began a new fit of
screaming ; but seeing he was left to scream
to himself, he soon ceased ; and being very
hungry, he soon ate the supper his kind
mother had brought him.
Mr. Stenhouse was true to his word ; and
from that day a new system was begun, at
which Arthur greatly rebelled at first ; but
its good effects soon began to be apparent,
though sellishness had taken too deep root
in his heart to be easily eradicated.
About ten mouths after this lime, a great
sorrow befell poor Rosa Mitchell. Her fa
ther, who was a mason, fell from the top
of a high scaffolding, and was carried home
apparently in a dying elate. Week after
week passed without much improvement.
Rosa was sitting silently beside h
Jav, when the heard her mother
"Is there really uo hope, sir?"
"I would not say that, my good woman,"
he replied ; "but the chances are against
him. He should be having very generous
diet. now good port wine, and strong beef
tea. But that is not easily 'got, I know;
and as his constitution is strong, he may
rally without it."
Mrs. Mitchell looked sadly distressed.
These weeks of illness had used up all her
savings; and with the prospect of her hus
band being st ill many weeks off work, to
get such things was not possible.
Rosa's arms were round her little Silver
hair, and a sudden resolution filled her
"I love you, my pretty Silverhair," she
murmured, a she bent over him ; "but I
love father better."
Softly leaving the cottage, and led by
Silverhair, she walked with a half-breaking
heart towards Mr. Stenhouse's residence.
Arthur's joy was as great as poor llosa's
sorrow when he found that Silverhair was
to be hi., own, and he ran to get the pretty
brown terrier he had promised to llosa, and
twenty dollars, the purchase money of her
Silverhair. Meanwhile llosa sat on the
doorstep, slid clasping the dog ir. her arms.
"I would not have done it, Silverhair, my
dear, dear Silverhair," she sobbed ; "you
know I wjul i not have done it, only for
father's sake ;" and the wise little creature
whined sadly iu reply.
And so she and Silverhair parted. Boun
cer, the little subttitute, of course did not
know in the least how to guide her ; and
when she had walked down the avenue, and
passed the gate she sat down sorrowfully by
the roadside, waiting until soma one should
come. She had not to wait long ; for every
one knew the little blind girl, and was wil
ling to help her.
"What iUHi you doing here, Itosa, and
what has become f.f Silverhair?" asked her
chosen friend Lily Itaeburn, who could
scarcely believe when lloa (old her the dog
was suid ; and she g'ad'y offered to lead her
"Hut first," said llo-a, "take me to Stew
art the butcher's, ami to a grocer's ; for I
must take home some beef and some wine.'
The poor chill's spirits rose after she
made her purchases ; and in the triumphant
joy of giving thm to her mother, the loss
of her favorite was, for the moment, all
forgotten. She had not made the sacriGce
in vain, as her father soon began to improve
and bef ire very many weeks was able to re
sume his work. - ,

su Jdea jerk of th
cord from her grasp precipitated poor Ilosa
over the brink, just where there was a dark,
d.'cp pool. In a moment the waters closed
over her ; but almost i-umediately one of
the reaners had dashed in after her, and
succeeded iu rescuing her from their dark
depths. A crowd had gathered round her

male way for Mr. Stenhouse, who had left
his carriage to inquire about the accident.
"the is a pretty little thing," he said.
"How could her parents trust her to such a
dog as that?"
"Did you not know, sir," said John, "that

Mr. Stenhou.se had never inquired into
the history of Silverhair ; and Arthur, hav
ing some idea that it was better uot to tell
it, had said little , about the dog to his fa
ther. Mr. Stenhouse ordered John to put the
child into the carriage and to drive as fast
as possible to his Louse. There she was
stripped (A her wet elothing, and rolled in
warm blankets; but for a time it was im
possible to restore her to consciousness. It
was not until the faithful Silverhair came
and licked her white cheeks, and whined
pitoously beside her, that she at last opened
her eyes ; but they closed again almost im
mediately. Arthur was in real distress so great that
his father did not speak of his selfish covet
ing of the poor blind girl's favorite ; and
when Rosa was able to go home, it was his
own wisk that Silverhair should go with
From that time much kindness was shown
to Ilosa by every one in the house, and one
day Mr. Stenhouse begged leave to take her
with him to the city, as he thought it pos
sible that an eminent oculist there might be
able to cure her. So Ilosa went with her
kind friend ; and two months afterwards the
carriage onee more stopped at the cottage
gate, and Rosa, no longer a poor blind girl,
sprang into the arms of her parents.
It seemed as if she could never gaze
enough at their dear faces, the stranger
faces of her beloved parents ; but at last she
found time to tarn to Silverhair. who was
trying in every way to attract her atten
tion. "I can see you now, my beautiful, beau
tiful Silverhair 1" she cried; "and when
you get old, I will nurse you ; and when you
get blind, I will lead you, aad never, never
part from you again."
And so ends the sweet story of Silver
hair. Uoble Answers.
"You ask," said the famous William,
IViuee of Orange, to Soney. the governor,
"if 1 have entered into a treaty, or made a
contract for assistance with the cause of the
oppressed Christians in provinces. I have
entered into a close alliance with the King
of kings ; and I am firmly convinced that
all who put their trust in him will be saved
by his almighty hand."
Afterwards, when ofTered every personal
and family favor if he would but give up
his life long endeavors to secure religious
freedom to the poor Nethlanders, the brave
prince replied, "he regarded the welfare
and .security of the public before his own,
having already placed his particular inter
ests under his foot, and was still resolved to,
so long as life should endure."
Oeleyn de Mater, a schoolmaster, being
found addicted Ut re iding the Bible wus ac
cused of heresy. Summoned before the in
quisitor, he was commanded to make instant
recantation. "Do you not love your wife
and children ?"' "God knows." answered
Geleyn of Audenarde, "that if tlio wU
world were of gold, and my own, I would
give it all only to have them with me, even
had I to live on bread and water, and be in
bondage." "You have them," said the
inqutsitory, "only renounce the error of
your opinious." "Neither for wife, chil
dren or ail the world, cau I renounce my
(Jod and religious truth." Thereupon be

"Do you believe in Christ?" said an infi
del to John Jay. "I do, and I thark God
that 1 do," was the statesman's noble reply.
Two years before his death, when 2 years
of age, he was struck down by disease and
his recovery despaired of. When urged to
tell his children on what foundation he rest
ed his hopes, and from what source he drew
his consolation his brief reply was, "They
have the Book."
A king and some noblemen were once go

what noted for his venerable appearance,
aiieney ot speech and strict conservative
principles, who was conspicuous in his en
deavors to make himself agreeable. At
taching himself specially to a gentleman
who vras evidently one of the most promi

maik in oratorical tones : "I am happy to
see you, gentlemen of Englaud. As an
American citizen I came to pay my respects
to you, but I want nothing to do with those

of the visitois within hearing appeared to
enjoy the remark hugely, but the old gen

talking to Gcti. Schenck.

THE REPUBLICAN PAETY THE
To lift up the masses of men to a higher
standpoint of moral and mental excellence,
to impart to them greater skill, greater pro
ductive power, greater self-respect and high
er conscientious motives, are the only means
of a permanent cure of poverty, crime and
discontent. This can be accomplished by
three fold action : Political, Personal and
Political action can only tend incidentally
to this object The workingmen, like all
good citizens, ought to ally themselves w ith
that party, whose history furnishes the most
complete guarantees of beneficient progress.
If the woikinguien of the Uuited States
have any specific reforms to propose, they
must first present them at the bar. of public
opinion, where all political causes are tried,
and then endeavor to have them incorpora
ted in the platform of the dominant politi
cal party ; for iu that way they will be most
speedily converted into the law of the laud.
It then the Republican party has given ev
idence that it is ready to adopt all principles
and ideas which the popular conscience ap
proves, audmaketliei!) a partof its platform,
surely the woikir.gmaii. as such, lias no oc
casion first to tear down that political par
ty and establish a new one. for the purpose
of accomplishing his -objects. Common
sense clearly indicates that it is much easier
to engraft any popular principle into the
platform of the dominant party which has
the power to carry it out, than first to pop
ularize a principle, which must be done at
ail events, and then tear down the party and
substitute a new and special party in its
place. It may be strongly suspected. there
fore, that those who advocate the propriety
of securing special legislation for the
workingman by the formation of a new
party, are using this only as a pretext to
bring the Democratic party into power, and
for the purpose of obtaining pelf, places,
and power fur themselves. In so far then
as the workingman needs special legislation,
he can obtain it. after due discussion, from
the Republican prrty, which has a history
that incontrovertibly shows that it has been
for the last ten years, the one, real, practi
cal friend of the workingman, making no
distinction on account of race or color.
What has given to the modern labor move
ment its strength and consideration ? V hat
has given an impulse to the elevation and
dignification of labor throughout the whole
world, except the abolition of involuntary
labor in the United States? During the
forty yaM? rij5fi or the Democratic party,
several millions of workingmen and women
and their offspring were bought and sold,
like the cattle of the field, and dedicated to
the infernal moloch of Americau Slavery.
American workingmen were prevented by
cruel and outrageous laws from learning to
read and write, and, consequently, to think.
They were prevented both by laws and pub
lic opinion from leaving the class of physi
cal laborers to enter the professions or to
become their own employers. " The Repub
lican party, seeking the emancipation of this
oppressed class, through good and evil re
port, and after years of struggle and oblo
quy, succeeded in arousing the public con
science to demand the abolition of involun
tary servitude. The Republican party in
sisted that voluntary and equitable contracts
should be substituted for involuntary and
hereditary slavery. The party has done
more than this. It has overcome success
fully, with the aid of the nation, a gigantic
civil war. Under its leadership severa
hundred thousand men sacriSeed their lives
iu behalf of that grand principle, that in
voluntary servitude shall be forever abol
The enormous debt which now rests upon
the nation, and which is an incubus upon
every man's energies, was caused by the late
gigantic rebellion. These rebels were all
Democrats. There were no Republicans in
the rebellion. Anl siuee thai time every
measis calculated to benefit this class of poop
emancipated laborers has been resisted with
insolence and malignity. The Ku Kiux
outrages to'-c'ay are nothing more than the
same malignacny on the part of the land
holders against their former slaves, trying
by intimidation to hav'e them submit to their
previous domination, cheating them out of
their wages, and reducing them to their for
mer state of abject dependence, though they
cannot re-esiablish slavery in name. The
Republican party has made the very name
of reform a popular catch-word so that
pseudo reformers are proclaiming their silly
reform uostrums, like patent medicine deal
ers, on every stump. Until the Republican
party made "reform" popular, conservatism
and conservative uostrums were the order
of the day.
The record shows, and it is a dark and
damning record, that the only veto which
President Buchanan had the courage to
muster, was hurled against the Homestead
Bill, which enacted that the public domain
shall be set apart for the use of the actual
settlers. It superceded the issue of land
warrants, which could be bought up by cap
italists, and located in largo bodies, thus
preventing the workingman from gaining a
home upon the national domain, except on
Usurous aud disadvantageous terms. It was
the Republican party that in the very first
year of its powers, enacted the Homestead
Bill into a law, and has upheld its provis
ions ever since. The memory of the Amer
ican people must be short, indeed, if they
do not recollect that the Homestead policy
was denounced by the Democratic press, as
unconstitutional, aggraviart and revolution
The Republican party has enacted a law
to protect uach and every maa iu easting bL,
ballot, to prevent ballot stuffing by unwor
thy men, to guarantee to each and every
workingman his absolute sovereignty ; and
to secure to him his equal influence, which
is endangered by the corrupting power of
wealth, wielded by monopolies aud consoli
dated capital. But in every stage, in every
turn, no matter what benefieiebt provisions
were proposed, the Republican party has
encountered the virulent and deadly hostili
ty of the Democratic leaders and press.
And even to-day, in the recent address which
was published by them, signed by fourteen
United States Senators, and ninety-three
Democratic Representatives, we defy any
one single generous sentiment, the proposal
of a single specific measure ot reform, a
line expressing intention to bey-fit, either
the workingman, or the country at large, or
as tending to augment the glory ami honor
of the Nation, either at heme or abroad. It
is the same system of fault-finding, of pul
ling down, of belitlle'uig, of every true con
scientious and philanthropic muu that has
endeavored to promote the progress of our
Country. Whenever our Government has
endeavored to protect the weak and poor in
their rights, the Democratic party has ex
hausted the vocabulary of oprobrious terms,
in denunciation of the Republican part-.
Surely the workingmen of the United States
are too intelligent to be misled by this fierce
denunciation of measures, which experience
and time have proved of benefit, alike to
the nation at large, and pirticu ally to the
poor men of integrity, and iu crested in an
At the demand of the woikingmcn, and
as a national example, the Republican party
enacted that, -on all public works, eight
hours shall constitute a d-iy's work. This
is another evidence that this party has been
anxious to secure the influence and co-operation
of the artizan.
From the few facts cited above it is evi
dent that the Democratic party is opposed
to lessen the burdens of the past, and that
the Republican party is the true friend of
the working classes throughout the country.
We submit these facts to the careful consid
eration of the workingmen everywliere.feel
ing confident that their better judgment will
approve of all we have said on the subject.
Aa Indian's Word of Honor.
A getleinrin of Jonesburg, Mo., recently
returned Irom Texas, relates an extraordiu
ary occurrence which took place a short time
since in the Indian Nation. A Choctaw
Indian, having committed a wilful murder,
was arrested, tried and sentenced to be shot
to death. Ue asked for i.wei.t3 .lays in
which to prepare and visit his friends giving
his word of honor as a "brave" to return at
the appointed time, and was allowed to go
forth without a guard or bail.
At the cxpiiation of the twenty days,
according to appointmeut, the hour for the
execution arrived, aud the Indian, true to
his word, at the very hour and minute gal
loped up to the place where the sentence
was to be carried out, in company with three
of his sisters and three brothers, all appear
ing as cheerful as thoueh they had come to
a dance or a frolic. The coffin was then
brought on the ground, but some one re
marked that it was too small, upon which
one of the doomed Indian's biDthers told
him to lie down in it and measure, which
he cheerfully did, and laughingly said, "It
fits all right." The crowd meanwhile ap
peared to be in the most cheerful spirits,
and cracked jokes and laughed.
At last, when all was ready, the doomed
mau was ordered to sit ou the ground. A
handkerchief was then placed over his eyes
by his sister. While the Sheriff held one
hand, one ot the condemned Indian's broth
ers held the other. The Deputy Sheriff
then stood iu an old house, about ten steps
in front of the condemned, with a rifle.
From some cause the rifle went off accident
ally, the bullet passing upxhrough the roof
of the house. -The Indian believing he was
shot, drew himself tip and shuddered, but
did not. speak or move from the s;t. A
black lnttrk was then made over the Indian's
heart, with sj ittleand powder, by his broth
er, while the Deputy Sdieriff reloaded his
rifle, and at a signal ho took steady aim,
fired, and plotted the centre of the mark.
The Indian, with a lew struggles, feii Lack
dead, with the brother and the Sheriff still
holding his bunds. No one seemed to be
in the least a flee ted except the doomed In
dian's mother, who shed tears, but was told
to "shut up" by her 3on, that all wu over.
The Book ok Phovertis. If you want
to find a system of ethics iwjttcr than all the
"Poor Richards" for practical ue, and bet
ter in theory than all the books of casuistry
studied in the schools, read the book of
Proverbs. It is a wonderful book. It is
full of common sense. It is discriminating
and yet dowuright. It hits the nail squarely-every
time. Asa means of success in
business. as a vadc. mrvuin in our iutcrcoursc
with men, good and bad, sluggish aud excitable,-
cunning aud simple, with men of
all sorts in all states, with all charucicrs,
there is nothing in literature that equals it
of even resembles it. I advise you to make
it the rule ot your life to read two verses in
Proverbs before commencing the work of
each day. If you would like to have the
name of never doing a foolish thine, or
using a foolish argument, or uttering a fool
ish opinion, study the Proverbs of Solomon
till their spirit has penetrated to the very
marrow of your daily life.
Somebody has written a book entitled
"What b-hall my son be?" Upou which
some one frankly replied : "If the boy is as
bad as the book, the chances are that he
will be hantd. "
