And children in llicir imrthdil play
H'ed m.t the mournful crowd advancing,
I'p llirnu'.'.li llie Ion;; and buiy stroct
They'll Lear me to my last retreat.
Or eUe it mat!cr ni t may rave
The storms and blasts i f winter weather
Above the nanow, new male prave,
Wh.-re rare an t I lie down ti.icther j
Jhiciuph that I should know it not,
lknealh, in the darlf, narrow spot.
For I shall sleep ! As sweet a sleep
As ever praced a child reposing.
Awaits me in the c ll so tlrt-p,
Where I, my weary eyelids closin.:.
At lensth shall lay me down to lest.
Heedless of clods above my breast.
Asleep! how deep will he that rest,
Free from life's fever movins wildly.
That, when is past the earih's unrest.
Its bosom shall receive me mildly;
For not one dream of earili shall come
T' invade the slumber of that home.
O, deep repose ! O, slumber blessed !
O, iiikIvi of peace ! Xo storm, no sorrow.
No heavy stirring in my rest
To meet another weaiy morrow!
I shall not heed the nipht or dawn,
but still, with folded hands, sleep on!
Sleep on, thoitph just above my head
Prowl sin and misery's hazard laces j
For the deep slumber ot ihe dead
A'l sense of human woe erases,
I'alsies the heart, and cures the biain
Of every thought of outward pain.
Armies above my rest may tramp
Twill not disturb one rind muscle !
( shall not hied their iron stamp
Mire than a leafs complaining ruMle ;
Xav, were the earth convened to break
My leaden sleep, I shall not wake.
And yet, methinks if steps of those
I'd known and loved on eailh were 'round me,
Twonld tame the mi?ht of my repose,
Phiver the iron cords that bound me
Save that I know this can not be.
For death disowns all sympathy!
Well, be it so! since I should yearn.
And anxious watch for their appearing,
Chidin" each lingering, late return.
And ever sad and ever fearing
Living life's drama o'er again,
I:s tragedy of hope and pain.
Then mourn not, friends! when ye may lay
The clods of earth above my ahes;
Think what a rest awaits my clay.
And smooth the mound with tearless lashes,
Glad that the resting form within
Has dune at length with woe and sin.
Think thai with me the strife is o'er!
Life's stormy, strughns battle ended!
Rejoice that I have sained that shore
To which, though weak, my footsteps ter.ded ;
Iireathe a blessed pracr above the sod.
And leave me lo my rest with Ciod.

any one wants to see him, they can have :
a sight by visiting the Capitol at Harris- :
burg, where he occupies a seat as the lie- j
nresentative. in the IToue. of Wavne
county. His patronymic is AV,,A, and
ho in a Hardshell Lpnomnton rlomo. rat.
His face, when we saw him, was rulicund ;
! but that was probably owing to perspiring
efforts in delivering a set oration of an

I took half an acre of swurd ground,
turned it down and prrparrd it in the
same way we prepare ground for a cr ip ef
coru. I then marked it in dtiils thirty
inches apart and sowed fifteen or twenty
grains of corn to the foot, along these
drills. It came up Gnely. I ran the plow
twice to tbe row and dressed it a little
with the hoe to keep the weeds and grass
under. In this way I got a very hiavy
crop of fedder.
Now for the resu! of my experiment :
I bad eleven cows. They began to shrink

through the tummer frnm the destruction

Co'jbet said, in speaking of the culture
of cue-umbers, that two plants in a hill
would bear a smaller crop than one, three)
less than two, until fi'ty plants would
bear nothing at all. Tie remark will
apply to all cueuibitous plants, as melons,
snishes and pumpkins which are oftea
allowed to grow too thickly.
Pitisbuuo, April 10, 153. Through
the columns of your widely read jiurual,
let me note one of the '-Crt frui's'' iu a
legal way, of the Dred Scott decision in
our "smoky city." George Gardner, a
respectable, Lard working, industrious col
ored man, yclept "a chattel," bad become
surety to a large amount for a city tax col
I ctor, who afterward became a defaulter.
Suit was had upon lis bond by tftcity,
and th? case went to the ju-y last night.

therefore, as I have said, f ,un for tho

The verdict b joit now the
all-absorbing topic, and gives unbounded
satisfaction in our liber'y-loving commu
nity. It certaiuly was a legal novelty,
and has created a buzz among the gentle
men of tbe long robe. It will go up to
our Court of Appeals, where, of course, it
will bo reversed, as in that upper atmos
phere of courts in this State, contrary lo
laws governing tbe natural atmosphere, it
becomes dense and more impure as you
ercied iu icgard to Lecompton. IB our
recent Spring elections it Las defeated
them in every township in the county.
Strychnine and nux vomica never did half
such execution in tbe extermination of rats
and olhtr vermin, as Lecompton has done
in Western Pennsylvania. Tribune.
