Up from the'Soutk st break of day,
Bringing to
,Winchester fresh dismay,
The affrighted air with a shudder bore
Like a herald in haste to the chieftain's door,
The terrible grumble and rumble and roar,
Telling the battle was on once more,
And Sheridan twenty miles away.
And wilder still these billows of war.
Thundered along the horizon's bar,
And louder yet into Winchester rolled,
The roar of that red sea uncontrolled.
Making the blood of the listener cold
As he thought of the stake in that fiery fray,
And Sheridan twenty miles away.
But there is a road from Winchester town,
A good, broad highway leading*down ;
And there through the flush - of the morning
A steed, as black as the steeds of night,
Was seen to peal as with eagle flight—
As if he knew the terrible need
He stretched away with his utmost speed;
Hill rose and fell—but his heart was gay,
With Sheridan fifteen miles away.
month, "
Or the trail of a comet sweeping faster and
faster, .
Foreboding to traitors the doom of disaster;
The heart of the steed and• the heart of the
Were beating like prisoners assaulting their
Impatient to be where the battle field calls ; -
Every nerve of the charger was strained is
full play,
With Sheridan only ten miles away.
Under his spurring feet, the road
Like an arrowy Alpine river flowed, '
And the landscape sped away behind
Like an ocean tiring before the wind ; -
And the steed, like a bark fed with furnace
' ire,
Swept on, with his wild,eyes full of ire,
Doti° 1 he is nearing his heart's desire—
He is snuffing the. smoke of the roaring fray,
With Sheridan only five miles away.
The first that the General saw were the groups
Of stragglers, and then the retreating troops;
What was done—what to do—a glance told
him both,
Then striking his spurs with a terrible oath,
And dashed down the line 'mid a storm of
And the wave of retreat checked it■ course
there because
The sight of the master compelled it topause.
With foam and with dust the black charger
was gray ;
By the fuh of his eye, and his red nostrils
Re seemed to the whole great umy to nay :
~ I have brought you Sheridan all the way
From Winchester down to save the day."
Hurrah, hurrah, for Sheridan !
Hurrah, hurrah, for the horse and man I
And when their statues are placed on high,
Under the dome of the Union sky,
The American soldiers' Temple of faine,
There, with the glorious General's name,
Be it said in letters both bold sad bright:
Bare is the steed that eared the day
By carrying Sheridan into the fight
From Winchester--twenty miles away."
I once heard an old Jour remark that a
printing office was no place for love-mak
ing, and I have since experienced the
truth of his observation—being now fully
convinced that the flower love can never
bloom amidst type stands and printing
ink. It was my fortune to sojourn in the
village of —. Directly opposite the
office was a pretty white cottage, with a
rose bush all around the casement, and I
was .not long in making the discovery
that the cottage contained a fair inmate—
& flower whose beauty far outshone the
roses that clustered around the window.
She was a little blue-eied creature of some
sixteen summers: She was the belle of
the village,and her name was Mary— sweet
poetic Miry.
It was a beautiful summer morning,and
I raised the window to admit the cool and
refreshing breeze from the flower-decked
fields, and it was not long before I per
ceived that the cottage window was also

near it. very busily engaged with her nee
dle. I worked but Mile that morning.
My eyes constantly wandered toward the
cottage window, where little Nary sat, and
all sorts of fantastic notions whirled thro'
my fancy-lighted brain, and I began to
think that a slight touch of what the po
ets call love, was sliding in at the corners
of my heart. A few days . passed away and
chance made me acquainted with Mary.
Heavens I she was a [limit creature—a
form that would have shamed the famous
Venus de Medici—a cheek that out-blush
ed the richest peach, and a lip that would
have tempted a bee from his hive on a
frosty morning. She seemed the embodi
ment of all that was lovely and bewitch
ing. Well, time passed on, and one day
Mary expressed a wish 'to come and visit
the printing office. Oh thought f, what
a chance ; I'll do it there, yea there in the
midst of the implements of the black art.
Why shouldn't I? Love in a printing of
fice ! There was something original in that
and I resolved to try
Shoridan's Ride.

Love in a Printing Office.
Well, Mary came to the office, and I ex-
plained to her the use of every implement
of the black art—the inks and the stands,
and the boxes of A, B, C's. I took the
opportunity to snatch her lily white hand,
and she drew it back knocking a stick
full of matter into-pi. " I must have a
kiss for that, my pretty one," said I, and,
at it I went. I managed to twist one arm
around her waist and in struggling to free
herself she upset a galley of editorial, a
long article on the Reconstraction Ques
tion. Nothing daunted, I made at her
again. This time •I was more successful,
for I obtained the kiss. By St. Paul, it
was a sweet one, and the little witch bore
it like a martyr. She never screamed once,
but as I raised my lips from hers, she lift
ed her delicate little.hand and gave me a
box on the ear that made me see more
stars than were - ever viewed by Herschel
through his big telescope. Somewhat
nettled, end with my cheeks smarting
with pain. I again seised her waist' and
said, " Well, if you don't like it,.just take
back the kiss." She made a desperate
struggle, and as she jerked herself from
my arms her foot struck the ley pot, and
over it .went.
Another galley of Editorial was sprink

reach the door her foot slipped, and in , at

Last Hours of Gea. Jackson.
This illustrious hero and patriot aimed
his earthly pilgrimage at the " Hermit
age." near Nashville, On:Tuesday, the 3d
of June. 1815. His eminent services, in
various times of difficulty and danger, can
never be forgotten by the grateful people
who delighted to. confer upon him the
highest honors in their gift. While the
lustre of his name as soldier and states
man shall long shine upon the page of
history, it is tar more pleasing to believe
that it has also been ' written in Heaven."
During the latter years of his-life, especi
ally, ex-President Jackson devoted much
deep and serious thought to the moment
ous subject of religion, and he died as
Christians die.
Immediately after the event which call
ed a nation to mingle its , regrets and sen
sibilities. it was our privilege to read a
very interesting letter from a gentleman
who spent a few days at the "Hermitage"
during the last week of the General's life,
in which he affectionately described the
solemn and impressive closing scene. The
disease which terminated his long and
useful life was dropsy. and it had invaded
his whole system. His feet and legs, his
hands and arms, were very much swollen;
be had• not strength to stand, and fres
unable to lie down during the last four
months; he could obtain no sleep except
by opiates ; his respiration we, very short
and attended _with amok difficulty ; and
the whole.progress of the disease w a s ac
companied with great Suffering. But, in
the midst of all,the venerable chieftain was
patient and resigned, repeatedly-express
ing his entire sulmissibn to. the Divine
will, and his humble hope and trust in the
merits of the Redeemer. He was obliged
to be lifted in and out of his sitting pos
ture in bed to the lama posture in his
chair; and nothing could exceed the of
feetionate care, vigilance and never-ceas
ing efforts of his pious and devoted fami
ly to administer to his relief. To one of
them he said, " I hope God will grant me
patience to submit to His holy will ; He
does - all things well, and blessed be His
holy and merciful ntme.q' His bible was
always near him ; if in h is
r chair, it was on
his table beside him ; when propped up in
bed, the sacred volume was laid by him,
and he often read it.
To the.last, the General, as usual. re•
ceived many visitors ; sometimes more
than thirty in a day. All were admitted,
from the humblest to the most renowned,
to take the aged dying warrior by the
hand, and bid him farewell. Among the
the visitors during. the closing week was
Gen. Jessup,an old friend and companion
in arms ; and the meeting of these most
faithful and gallant soldiers and servants
of the Republic was deeply interesting and
affecting. A clergyman called to Inquire
in regard to the Ex Piesident's health,
his faith and future .hope, to whom he
said : "Sir, I am in the hands of a merci
ful God. I have full confidence in his
goodness and mercy. My lamp of life is
nearly out, and the last glimmer is come.
lam ready to depart when called. The
bible is true. The principles tad statutes
of that holy book have been the rule of
my life, and I have tried to conform to
its spirit as near as possible. upon that
sacred volume I rest my hope of eternal
salvation, tbrouvh the mercies and blood
of our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus
At - 9
o'clock every night it was' the cus
tom of all the General's family, except the
few who in turn watched by his side, to
take their leave of him. Each member
approached him. received his blessing,
bade him farewell and kissed him. as it
seemed, a fisal farewell ; „for he would say
at such times, "My work is done for life."
After his family had retired it was touch
ing to witness this heroic man, who bad
faced every danger with unyielding front,
offer up his prayers for those whom Prov
jdence had committed to his care ; that
Heaven would protect and prosper them
when he was no more; praying still more
fervently to God for the preservation of
his country, of the Union and of the pea ,
ple of the United States ; tendering his
forgiveness to his enemies, and his greti
tude to God for his' support and success
through a long life, and for the hope of
eternal salvation through the merits of our
blessed Redeemer.
On the Sunday preceding his death the
General said : " This day is the holy Sab
bath, ordained by God and set apart to be
devoted to his worship and praise. I al
ways attended service at church when I
could;.but now I can go no more." He de
sired the family to go, as many as could,
and charged them to continue the Sunday
School after his death. He considered
this system of instruntion of vast impOrt
ance, and spoke with an emphasis which
showed his anxiety to it on the
family. (His deceased wife, and her sister,
Mrs. Adams.regularly attended the school
in their neighborhood.) A part of the
family went to church. The General look
ed out of the window, and said ; " This
is apparently the last Sabbath I shall be
with you. God's will be done—He is kind
and merciful," He prayed to be sustained
in his hour of dissolution, and his look
was . often fixed with peculiar a ffe ction on
his grand daughter, }lsabel, named after
his wife, so beloved, and whose memory
be to the last most tenderly cherished.
Five or sit,days before his death, Gen.
Jackson sat awhile to Ur. • Healey, who
bad been sent by Louis Philippe (then
King of the French) to paint his portrait.
It was the design of that monarch to place
it by the side of that of Washington,
which then hung in his gallery,:--:at that
time the most celebrated and historical
gallery in the world ; and to • surround
them with the pictures of the twat, alai

Ingratitude to' Parents. '
• There Is a proverb that ' a father can
more easily maintain six children, than
six children one father' Luther relates
this story : • There was once a father who
gave up everything to his children—his
house, his fields, his goodt—and expected
for this the children would support him ;
but after he had been for some time with
the son the latter grew tired of him, and
said to him, ' Father, I have -bad a son
born to me this night. and there, where
your arm chair stands, the cradle malt
come : will' you not, perhapS, go to my
brother,, who has a large room ?" After he
had been some time with the second son,
be also grow tired of him, and said, 'Fatly
er, you like a warm room, and that hurts
my head. Won't you go to my brother,
the baker?' The father went, and alter
be had been some time with the third eon
he also found him troublesome, and said
to him, ' Father, the people run in and
out here all day as if it were a pigeon
house, and you cannot have your noonday
sleep '• .would you not be better off at my
sister Kate's, near the town wall ?' The
old man remarked to lzimself, 'Yes, I will
do so ; I will try it with my daughter.' She
grew weary of him, and she was always so
fearful when her father went to church or
anywhere else, and was obliged to descend
the hteep stairs ; and at her sister Eliza
beth's there was no stairs to descend, as
she lives on the ground floor. For the
sake of peace the old man assented, and
went to the other daughter; but after
some time she too became tired of him,
and told him, by a third person,•that her
house near the water was too damp for a
man who suffered with gout, and her sis
ter, the grave digger's wife, at John's, had
rattoh drier lodgings. The old man him
self thought she was right, and went to his
youngest daughter, Helen ; but after he
had been three days with her. her little
son said to his grandfather, 'Mother 'aid
yesterday to cousin Elizabeth that there
was no better chamber for you than such
a one father digs.' These words broke the
old man's heart, so that he sank back in
his chair and died.
Wife and Squaws.
I heard an anecdote of Kaffirland to
day, which, though perfectly irrelevant to
our adventures here, is so amusing that
I must record it, particularly as my inform
ant vouches-for its truth. At en outpost,
far up the country, resided an officer and
his wife. The latter was warned by her
husband not to venture alone far from the
house; but one day, imprudently going
beyond her usual limits , she encountered
a wild looking Kaffir, who took her by
the , hand, and would be moved by no en
treaties to suffer - her to depart. He made
her sit down, and untying her bonnet; let
down her long. fair hair, at which he ex
pressed rapturous admiration. He next
took off her gloves, and appeared enchan
ted with her white hands ; and then pro
ceeded to divest her of her shoes and
stockings,tind wondered at ber little white
feet. ' The next morning the lady and her
husband were awakened at an early hour
by a chatting under their window, and on
enquiring the cause of the disturbance,
the gentleman was accosted by the hero
of the previlus day, who had been so im:
pressed by the charms of our fair coun
trywoman. that he had come with twelve
squaws, to make the liberal offer of ex
changing them for the gentleman's wife,
and was a little surprised when his gener
ous terms were refused.
