Lord Lovell ho sat. In St. Charles' Hotel,

As tine n case of n Southern swell
As over you'd wish to see—see—see,
As over you'd wish to coo.
Lord Lovell the town bad vowed to defend,
A waving his sword on high,
lie swore that his last ounce of powder he'd spend
And In the last ditch he'd dld.
Ito sworn by black and swore by blue,
Ile sworn by the stars and bars.
That flavor bed tly from the Yankoo crew,
Wldlo he was the eon of Mars.
Ife had fifty thousand gallant man,
Fifty tbeusand, gallant men had ha,
Who had all sworn with him that they'd.naeor surran
Der to any tarnatfon Yankoo.
Ile had forts that no Yankees alive could take,
Ile had Iron clad boats a score,
And hitterles all around the Lake
Aud along the river shore.

With a mPrhty foot camo ho.

Before tho first boat ho could soo.

Dwindled down to thousand six;
Then heard a distant cannon and then
Commenced a cutting their sticks.
"Oh tarry, Lord Lovo..111" Rir Farragut cried,
Oh tarry, Lord Lovell!" bald he;
'• I rather think not," Lord L,vell replied,
" Fur I'm In a-great hur.rY.:'

A terrible smash there'd be."
Oh !a wonder it was to see them run,
A wonderful thing to see,
And the Yankees sailed up without shooting a gun,
And captured their great dile.
Lord Lovell kept rOnning all day and night,
Lord Lovell a running kept he,
For he swore he couldn't abide the sight,
Of the guu of a live Yankee
When Lord Lovell's life was hrongbt to a close
By n sharp sholting-Yankee gunner,
From his head tr.ere spouted a red red Tv se,

It was near the end of the college year
and the boys were getting somewhat res

Everything W 11,9 dull, awfully so, and the
boys waited impatiently fOr their annual
deliverance from the thraldom of college
life, and longed to be out of reach of the
sound, of what was to too many of us,
the ill-omened recitation bell.
One night three of us were gathered
together in my room, reveling in the be
fogging delights of ale, and short stemm
ed, well begrimed "thulheens" and think
ing of the good times we \ would have at
home, how many times we should fail next
day-and divers other subjects agreeable and
otherwise. We had been quiet for some
time, when Sam F—suddenly broke
in upon our meditations by exclaiming:
" I have it boys! Let's have some
fun to night."
Every fellow's ears were, cocked in an

" soon fix that," said Sam, and go•
ing to his room, he returned with a short
iron bar, technically called a "jemmy"
and a dark lantern. We disguised our
selvel so that our sweethearts would not
have known us, and, having prepared the
effigy and lighted the lantern, took up
our line of march for the Parson's stable.
The procession moved in the following
First—Sam, bearing the "jemmy" and
dark lantern. Second—my chum, with
the effigy thrown over his shoulders,.
after the manner in which the farnTers
were formerly supposed to carry their
pigs to market. And lastly, mytelf, bear
ing two ancient and dilapidated coffee
pots, wherewith to; decorate the caudal
appendage of the Parson's Rozinante and
Accelerate his speed.
We soon arrived at the. stable,
which was situated at the upper end of
the town, just in rear of his residence,
and with the aid of the "jemmy" opened
the door,. and putting the bridle on the
old grey, led .him out in the rear of a
cornEeld belonging to- the Parson. We
then proceeded to attach the coffee pots
to his tail and were about to put the effigy
do his.back, when we were suddenly dis•
turbed ,by the , appearance of a figure,
dressed in white, making its way rapidly

"Bless your heart certainly. Sure I
don't want their contents."
Herrmann took an egg from the basket
and broke it. Ile poured the yolk out,
and in the shell were four two-and-half
gold pieces. At the sight of the glitter

twitched her nose, Icoked at the crowd

"Valuable eggs, madam," said Herr
mann. "Will you please break this one
for me?" handing her one.
She took it, at the same time staring
Herrmann in the face, and nervously
broke it. It was as rich as the first; tour
gold quarters were lying in the shell,
She involuntarily closed her hand, when
the magician remarked :
"Stay, madam; what the eggs contain
belongs to me;" and as she handed him
the money, he asked :
"What will you take for all you have ?"
A feMale in the crowd, who occupied
an adjacent stall, cried out, "Don't sell
another one. You've as much right to
the gold that's in them as any person
"They're not for sale, sir, she replied.
The crowd Which had gathered around
the magician now numbered hundreds.
Herrmann broke another egg, and the
gold was there ; and alternately the wo

ten dollars in gold. The crowd bad

the fowl on the stall alive. The market
woman instantly caught it, and taAing
hold of its head endeavored + to pull it off,

on too fast. An expression of the utmost
astonishment settled on her face, and she
gazed at Herrmann with, bewildering
wonder. ThQ crowd cheered and Herr

At this juncture a policeman came up

A member of the press offered to buy the

the woman refused to sell it, although a

she would 'carry it home and allow it to

no difficulty in disposing of her stock.

A Sermon Six and a Ralf Centuries
In the Dean of

published in England, occurs a curious
sermon preached about the- . year 1200,
by .13ishep Lanston. The text is a popu

Her body she clothed and adorned,
Into a garden she entered

We read that of every idle word we
shall have to give an account at the Judg

to expel base things' with good, and to

a virgin, a rod, and a shrub." A virgin,
whence we have, " Behold a virgin shall

was announced when the angel said,

cmcnit.kt, TERRY AND THE REBEL COLO-
Major Gardiner, of the Seventh Conn
e!..tirmt regiment, now at home on leave,
tells a characteristic story of .General
Terry, the late colonel of his regiment.
After Fort Pulaski had been placed
in General Terry's charge, and as it, re,
bel commander, Cchoncl Olmstead, was
about to be sent North as a prisoner of
war, General Terry, appreciating the em
barrassments to which he might be sub
jected, turd him that as it was not proba
ble that he was supplied with current
money, and as confeduate money was
vaidless except as a curiosity, he desired
that he would accept of a sum that might
tree him from temporary inconvenience,
and presented him with fifty dollars in
good money. The offer was greatfully
accepted, of course, with suitable ac
knowledgements of the generosity which
prompted it. How strikingly the act
contrasts with the development of rebel
ruffianism toward Union-men, as shown
in Senator Wade's report.
A knot of Newspaper correspondents in
the Department of the Rappahannock ,
lately took formal possession of certain re-!
bel premises, and adopted the following'

Curative Effects of Grapes
Dr n, -of-- -141entz r _has--.-published
an interesting account of the curative eff
eats of grapes, in various disorders of the
body.. They act, firstly, by introducing
large quantities of fluids into the system,
which, passing through the blood, carry
by perspiration and other execrations,
the effete and injurious materials of the
body ; secondly as a vegetable nutritive
agent, through the albumeroid of nitro.

the,.grape contains ; thirdly, as a medi
cine,.at the same time soothing, laxative,
alterative and defarative ; fourthly, by
the alkalies, which diminish the plastici
ty of the blood, and render all more flu
id ; fifthly, by the various mineral ele
ments, such as sulphates, chlorides, phos
phates, &c., which are an analogous and
valuable substitute for mak)? mineral
Employed rationally and methodically,
aided by suitable diet and regimen, the
grape produces most important changes
in the system, in favoring organic trans
mutations, in contributing healthy mate
rials to the repair and reconstruction of
the various tissues, and in determining
the removal of vitiated matters which
have become useless and injurious to the
system Directed by a skillful physi
cian, this valuable agent can be made to
produce the most varied effects on the
constitution. It also possesses the advan
tage of being.acceptable to most invalids

A SHARP ANSWER.—There was a
physician in the neighborhood of Frank

for seventy-one years, who was corrupting
the minds of men by his Pantheism: The
physician being called to a sick family in
the Franklin parish, met the Franklin.
tninistiir at the house of affliction. It
was no place for a dispute: It was not a
place for an unbecoming familiarity with
the minister. It was no place for a phy
sician to inquire into the age pf the min
ister, especially with any intent of en
tangling him in a debate, and, above all,
where the querist was too visionary for
any logical discussion But the abrupt
question of the pantheist was:
" Mr. Emmons, how old are you?"
" Sixty, sir; and how old are you ?"
came the quick reply. ..
•As 014 PS the creation, sir, was i the
triumphant re-ponse. '.Then you are of

The destruction of cotton and tobacco
by the rebels o, ill call, to every ones mind
the proverb of "cutting off the nose to
spite the face." The U. S. army pro
tects pr. perry wherever it goes, but the
rebels have got into their sconces the opin
ion that cotton and tobacco are toasters
of the world, awl that the destruction of
these two gre.tt productions of their own
would ruin all creation Their, conduct
brings to mind the anecdote which used
to be told of an incident in the great 'lrish'
rebellion. A banker at Dublin had made
himself very prominent in the government
cause. Of course he was must essentially
bated by the insurgents, and their prog
ress through the country, whenever they
cause across any of his notes of issue—his
" promises to pay"—they brew them in
to the lire and burned them up, with the
exclamation, "We'll ruin the rascal."—
This-is the only antecedent which we cAn
draw from history, for the insane conduct
of the rebels, in destroying their own
property, which no one ever dreamed of
taking from them.
Ono Simeon Hazen, now living in the
town of Sprague, Connecticut at the age
of 93 years, has lived in three different
towns without removing from his home,
Sprague having formerly been known as
Norwhich and Franklin ; and he also lived
under three Governments—the monarchy
of George the Third, then under the Con
federvy, and under the Government of
the United States. He has seen four
wars, and was drafted at New. London in
.the war of 1812, and had a son in the
same company, and one in the Mexican
war, and the present one.

Bill had his ride, but Joe was unharmed. Af
ter forcing their way some half a mile or such

posed in part of the red buckeye, with its
brilliant blossoms, they were suddenly star

uncomfortably near, and ere they could look

wild shriek of exulting rage a large female
panther sprang from a limb overhead full
upon the shoulders of Joe.
To twist. himself around and seize the ani

then commenced a struggle for life or death.
