Talk to me, darling Mlle,
Talk to me, love. tomight ;
Tell one some sweet, sad story,
Here, by the dim flre-llght ;
Sing me some quaint old ballad.
Of love, and of love's despair,
And I'll sit at your feet, Allis,
And comb out my braided hair
Never mind me If I neep, Alllo, ,
My bean Is full of tears ,
You see the shadows on the wall—
They are formless, as my fears ;
I can not tell You whence they came,
Nor when they will depart ;
tut I know they gather In, Allle,
And darken all my heart.
You hear the storm wind, Mlle,
Twirl through the darkling night ;
Just think Imw the forest branches
Against it toss and fight;
They know not why they are troubled,
Tossing - in - wild unrest';
And 'Lis something like the forest, Mlle,
This feeling in my breast.
There's the surging and he walling,
Like the sound of wordless woe,
As the tempest falls and freshens,
Now high. now wild, now low.
But, sing some quaint old ballad,
Of love, and of love' despair,
Aa I sit hero at your feet, Allie, ..
And comb out my braided hair.
From 'Spore Hours," by Jong, BROWN. M. D.
( co sets nag.)
Hat behaved well, never moving, showing
us how meek and gentle he could he, and
occasionally, in his sleep, letting us know
that he was iemolishing some advers ry.
fie took a. walk with me every day, gener.lly
to the Candle maker ltow ; but he was somhr.•
and mild ; declined doing battle, though
some fit . cases offered, and indeed- subrnitted
to sundry indignities ; and wasalways very
ready to turn, and came faster back, and
trotted up the stair with much lightness, and
went straight to that door.
Jess, the mare, had been sent, with her'
weather-worn cwt., to tiowgate, and had
doubtless her own dim and placid medita
tions and confusions, on the absence of her
master and Rah, and her unnatural freedom
from the road and her cart.
For some nays Ailie did well. The wound
healed "by the first intention:" for as
James said, “Oor skin's over clean
to bell." The students came in quiet and
anxious, and surro ilded her bed. She said
she. liked to see their yaktmg, honest faces.
The surgeon dressed her, and spoke to her
in his own Awn kind way, pitying her
through his ey e s, Rah an d J a mes outside the
circle,—Rah bong now reconciled, and even
cordial, and haviii tot le up his mind that
as yet nobody required worrying, but, as you
may suppo e, sewper partaus.
So far well: but, four days after the ope
ration, my patient had a sudden and long
shivering, a "groosini as she called it. 1

ashamed of being so the balance was lost
mischief hail begun. On looking at the
wound, a blush of red told the secret : her
pulse was rapid, her hreathing anxious and
quick, she wasn't herself, as she said, and
was vexed at her restlessness. We tried
what we could. James did everything, was
everywhere ; never in the way, never out of
it: Rab subsided un ler the table into a dark
place, and was motionless, all bet his eye,
which followed every one. Ailie got worse ;
began to wander in her mind, gently ; was
more demonstrative in her ways to James,
rapid in her questions, and sharp times. He
was vexed, and said, "She was never that
way aforo ; no, never." For a time she
knew heir head was wrong, and was always
asking our pardon—the dear, gentle old wo
man : then delirium set in strong, without
pause. Her brain gave way, and then came
that terrible spectacle,—
"a'he intellectual power, through words end things,
Weul sounding on its dim end perllong way ;"
she sang, bits of old 'songs and Psalms, stop
ping suddenly, mingling the Psalms of Davi t
and the diviner words of his Son and Lord,
with homely odds and ends and scraps of

eye; some wild words, some, household cares,

One night she bad fallen quiet, and as we
hoped, asleep ; her eyes were shut. We put
down the gas i and sat watching her, Sud.
Only:she, sat up in , bedi - and talking a bed
gown which was lying on it relied up, AO '
held it eagerly to her breast,—to the right
aide. We could ene;bereyee bright with a
surprising tenderness and joy, bending over
this bundle of clothes. She held it as a wo
man holds her sucking child ; opening out
her night-gown impatiently, and holding it
close, and brooding over it, and murmuring
foolish little words, us over one whom his
mother cOmforteth, and who •sucks and is
satisfied. It was pitiful and strange to see
her wasted dying look, keen and yet vague—
her immense love.
"Preserve me!" groaned James, giving
way. And then she rocked back and for
ward, as if to make it sleep, hushing it. and
wasting on it her infinite fondness. " Wae'
me, doctor; I declare she's thilkin' it's that
bairn." " What bairn 7" " The only bairn
we ever had; our ices Mysie, and she's in
the Kingdom, furty years and mair." It
was plainly true: the pain in the breast,
telling its urgent• story to a bewildered,
ruined brain, wits misread and mistaken ;
it suggested to her the uneasiness of a breast
ful of milk, and then the child ; aad so
again once more they were together, and she
had her ain wee Mysie in her bosom.
This was . She. sank, rapidly :
the delirium lett her ; but, as she whispered,
she was "clean silly ;" it was the lightening
before the final darkness. Alter having
some time lain still—her eyes shut. she said
"James I " He came close to her, and lift
ing up her calm, clear, beautiful eyes she
gave him a long look. turned to me kindly
but shortly, looked for Rab but could not
see him, then turned to her husband again,
as if she would never leave off looking, shut
her eyes, and composed herself.' 'She lay_for
some time breathing (pick, and passed away
so gently, that when we tho ight she was
gone, James, in his old•lashioned way. held
the mirror to her face. o After a long pause,
one small spot of dimness was breathed out ;
it vanished away. and never returned, leav
ing ttte blank clear darkness of the mirror
without a stain. " What is our life? it is
even a 'vapor, which appeareth for a little
time, and then vanisbeth away."
itab all this time had been lull awake and
motionless; he came forward beside us :
Ailie's hand, Which James had held, was
hanging down ; it was soaked with his tears;
Rah licked it all over carefully, hoked at
her, an I returned to his place under the
James' and I sat, I don't know bow long,
but for some time,—saying nothing: he
s arted up abruptly ' and with some noise
went to the table, and putting his right fore
and middle fingers each into a shoe, pulled
them out, and put them on, breaking .ne, of
the leather latehets, and muttering in anger,
`'l never did the o' that afore!"
I believe he never did ; not after either.
" Rah!" he said rouehly, and pointing with
his thumb to the bottom of the bed. Rah
leapt up, and settled himself ; his head and
eye to the dead fare. " Maister John. yell
snit for tile," said the carrier ; and disap
peared in the da , kness, thundering down
stairs in his heavy shoes. I ran to a front
; there he was, already round the
house, and out at the gate, ileeing like a
shadow. - . _ - - .
I was afraid about him, and yet not afraid ;
s i I sat down beside Rah, and being wear
ied, fell asleep. I awoke rem a sudden noise
outside. I, was November, and there had
been a heavy fall of snow. Rab was in
static (pm; he heard the noise too, and plain
ly knew it, but never mOed. I looked out;
and there, at the gate, in the dim morning—
for the sun was not up—was Jess and the
cart,—a cloud of steam rising from the old
mare. I did not see James ; he was already
at the door, and came up the stairs, anti met
me. It was less than three hours since he
left, and he must. have posted out—who
knows how 7—to Howgate, full nine miles
off; yoked Jess, and eriven her astonished
into town. He had an armful of blankets,
.ind was streaming with perspiration. He
nodded to me, spread out hii the floor two
pairs of clean old blankets having at their
corne-s, "A. G., 1791," in large letters in
red worst-d. Thee were the initials of
Mison Gnome, and James may have looked
in . at her from without—himself unseen bu•

and weary," and after having walked many
a mile over the hills, intirlrave seen her sit
ting, while "a' the lave were sleepin' ;"
and by the firelight working her name on the
blankets, fur hgr aiu James's bed.
He motionel Rab down, anti taking his
wife in his arnas, laid her in the blankets,
and flapped `li•er_jeaeefully and firmly up,
leaving the face uncovered ; and then lift
ing her, he nodded again sharply to me, and
with a resolved but utterly miserable face,
strode along the passaage, and down stairs,
followed by 4,,b, I folhewed with alight;
but he didn't teed it. I went out. holding
stupidly the candle in my hand in the calm,
frosty air; we were soon at the gate. I•
could have helped him, but I saw he was•not
to be meddled with, and he was strong, awl
did not need it. He laid her dawn as ten
derly, as safely, as he had lifted her out.ten
days before—as, tenderly as when he had
her first in his arms when she was only " A.

when he dared riot do it by himself. The men
said he was not afraid to swear at any time or

"Agreed," said the man, "it's an easy way
of °Amin ten dollars."
"Well, you come to mei' to-morrow and say
you have done it, and the money is yours ".
The time p4ssed on ; midnight came. The
man went to the graveyard. It was a night
of pitchy darkness. As he entered the grave
yard not a sound was beard : all was still as
death, Then the gentleman's words. "Alone

power. The thought of the wickedness of

Afraid to take another step, he fell upon his
knees, and 'instead of the dreadful oaths be

The next day he went to the gentleman and
thanked hint for what he had done, and said
he had resolved not to swear another oath as

A peouliar interest attaches to old people.
They have come down to us from a former
generation. Their days are spent. Only a
few sandt , remain in the glass. Many years of
intercourse with the world have made them
rich in experience. They well know what
hope and fear, what joy and sorrow are.—
They have laughed with the living and wept
for the dying. Disappointment and grief have
taMed their_ spirit - a And now at. the close of
life .a_ new and great wurld opens up, solemn
and unknown.
Much of their past is far baok, and the
years lie close together like distant street
lamps that seem to meet They have passed
through the several stages of life ; they have
been children, and wept, they have been lads
and lasses, and sowed Their wild oats ; they
hive wooed and been won ; they have rowed
their bark in sunshine and in storm: they
have been over plains and through deeps.—
liut now their journey is almost ended, the
work done.
Tue day far spent. Their early corupan •
ions and co laborers have already nearly all
gone. They stand alone, as it were, among a
new people, and look anxiously around like
belated birds left behind by mates that long
have taken their homeward passage. The
shadows of evening have gathered around
them, and the night has come. Blessed are
they that can-li6 down to pleasant dreams, for
they shall rise at a glorious waking.
A peculiar interest attaches to those old
pilgrims whose feet have trod so many years.
Not only do they interest us in their past, but
also in the future They walk along the
borderland of a great and untried world ; a
single stream divides them from the spirit
laud, and they sometimes seem,to speak from
the Other side—so deep and prophetic are
heir word-. When our eyes look upon these
passing pilgrims, we cannot help feeling the
solemnity of the sight ; for very soon will
these aged eyes open upon new scenes, and
those unsteady feet walk new plains.
Reverence old age. Con.ider its advice.—

Three Hundred Copperheads
I hereby make special requisition on the
Stale of Illinois for three hundred of the
ilest, meanest, most disloyal Copperheads
that can be found. I know they have them
there, and I am satisfied that they are :lent
ally needed here for the good oft the public
service, rendered so by the following cir
cumstances, viz :
There are here in the 26th Illinois Infan
try about -ix hundred as neat, clean, hardy
and well-disciplined men as ever marched to
the sound of drum—men who have borne a
prominent and honorable part in the taking
of New Madrid, Island No. 10, siege of
Corinth, battle of luka, and the late battle
of Corinth; besides many other engagements
of less note.
These men are tried and true as ever drew
bead on rebel head ; the love of country
swells their hearts and throbs . in every vein.
They have unanimously said they want no
peace that will "yield 'a single right of hu
manity or take one star from our glorious
Three hundred able-bodied Copperheads
are needed to fill this regiment up to the
maximum number. These noble and brave
men will hold them straight in camp, steady
in the, hour of battle. teach them to endure
harilships and suffering, to eat "hard crack
ers," and sleep on the bare. ground. In
short they "will train them up in the way
they shoe d go," and bring them back
through tribulation to the good old doctrines
of equal rights, common sense, and the
Union forever.
A speedy compliance with the provisions
of this requisition is respectfully requested.

The Views of a Loyalist at the South,

CORINTH, FEB. 25, 1863.
Editors 11, issouri Democrat:—This mea

share of public attention. On the avowed
policy of doing whatever might become ne
cessary to save our beloved country; step af
ter step his been taken by Congress and the
President, to this great,end. In the onward'
march, ;we have reached the one indicated
by the caption. to our,article. Nothing has,
yet been proposerlas ameans in our success - ,
of more imp irtance than this. The wonder
is„when , viewed in the light of sober com
mon sense, that we have mit, long ago, al
-lowed -stout,-loyal- colored -men - to-do- the
lit:pleat and most dangerous work in our
struggle. Naught but, folly and madness,
it would seem, can longer reject the essen
tial aid they offer. Let facts be submitted
to the candid - in proof, of this assertion:
1. That the rebellion has grown out of
slavery, is too evident to be questioned.
2. It is no less evident that the single end
and aim of the rebellion is, to protect,, per
petuate, and render impregnable, human
"'3..Can any one fail to see that our fight
ing must, be pointless, not , to say tutile, so
long as we try to strike; not at, but around
this very thing, which the enemy aims to do?
4. Arm the colored Men n6w,free and get.
ting`free in this conflict, and the issue is
made up and the' battle joined in earnest,
No more roundabout blows will be struck,:
The +Stronghold of the enemy
_is at once be
sieged, stormed and tad!. Just as certain
as we flee, protect I , nd arm colored people s ,
they will leave their oppressors and-join us.
Just an .certain as they do this, will the
Southern Confederacy find itself . Without an
object to fight for, or means to do it with.
6. But it is still alleged by some, that ne
groes will not fight. No intelligent, candid
man will rashly ,'say so. Did they not fight
under 'Washington and Jackson, receiving
the testimony of these heroes to their'bra

strife is to conform our measures to the just
demands of Providence. If in view of these
Jefferson trembled for bis country more
than fifty years ago, ought we not to more
than tremble now, overtaken as we are by
the very calamities this great statesman
feared ? Arm the oppressed, aid them iii

for deliverance through this great equitable

Letter from General lacClernand

The following letter from Mr. John Van
Buren, enclosing-one - from General MeCter

"New YORK, March 9, 1863.
"I have just received the enclosed letter
from General McClerriand, who-is in com
mand of our troops before Vicksburg. Al
though it is not intended for publication, the
action of Illinois democrats excites so much
attention that I think the views of General
McClernand ought to be made public. Be

and bus the reputation of being one of the
best soldiers in the army.

"Hon. John Van Buren :--An extract
from your_late speech has just - come-under
my notice. It has the clear old democratic
ring, and - contrasts so strikingly with the
spurious emanations of latter day democratic
imposters that I cannot forbear to hail it.
It reminds me of the better days of the de
mocratic pa ty, when, under the inspirations
of Jackson,, and sour father, its boasted
watchw u-ci was :.'The Union—it must be
preserved I' Responsively-to that sentiment,
I upheld the arms of both those magistrates
to the extent of my ability and at the sacri
fice of home and all endearment-4, and am
now bearing arms, amid disease and death,
against an armed enemy who would dese
crate it.
"Northern peace mongers, who would dis
honor that sentiment by proclaiming an
armistice in the face of a rebellious and de
fiant enemy, but add pusillanimity to treach
ery, and truly, as you energetically say, 'will
be carried away,' if not by 'the torrent' of
public opinion, eventually by force of arms.
"Your Obedient servant,
Tux following extracts from the speeches
of our "Southern bretbern" delivered in our
