"I WILL G0."-Genesis24: 58.
We have often thought that Rebckah's oft
hand acceptance of her first offer of marriage
was a dangerous example her proposed
husband, too, being forty years old J . But,
in the following sweet poem, it is made out
to be the text for all love making.
'I will go!" Yes, leaving all
All the life that erst I knew ;
Former loves, or great or small.
Centered in this one I view ;
Leaving all, I love thee so,
With thee, chosen, I will go.
I will go from girlhood here,
Sunny with its home-born love.
Into woman's higher sphrre.
Where the lights and sha.lowa move ;
All life's cares I then shall know.
Yet, I auswer, I will go.
I will go to bless thy way,
Cheer thee with a gentle voice.
Make thee happy every day.
Id the lightest smiles rejoice :
All thy cares and j 13's to know
As mine own yes, I will go.
I will go to walk with thco
On the rugged path of life ;
I will trj' a help to be,
Sharing with thee in the strife ;
I will never leave thee no
Till God calls me I will go.
I will go stand at thy side.
In the sunshine, in the shade ;
I will let no cloud divide
This one life or two have made ;
Nobler, stronger, love shall grow,
Reaching heavenward I will go.
Romance in Real Life.
The whistle blew, the bell rang and the
locomotive whirled alongside of the plat
form'; tvliercou ?tood a, group of people,
some saying their last parting words to
weeping friends, some eager and flushed
with hope, others hurried and anxious.
No one noticed the young girl who so quL
etly stepped into the car and took her
seat without any words of farewell ; each
individual was too busy thinking of him
self, even after the train Lad started on
its way, to take thought of that pale face,
or cast a second glance towards the deli
cate but trim little figure that had so si
lently appeared among the travelers. Dut
we may follow her, if others do not, and
learr. what is written in that silent face.
An orphan going from the place of her
birth, to earn, if possible, a larger pit
tance in the great metropolis, as a sales
woman in a store. The great metropolis
of which she has heard since a chdd, pic
tures itself to her imagination, and a rest
less curiosity, combined with many anx
ious forebodings, fill her mind alternately
with hopes and fears. Morning daw ned
and as the train whirled on, fast approach
ing the city, the passengers began to be
stir themselves, r.nd after the customary
bustle of arrival, they soon were scatter
ed far and wide. Some had returned to
the embraces of loving friends ; some
were hurrying through the crowded streets
in search of their old acquaintances ;
others, forlorn and lonely, thought only of
seeking employment. Our heroine was
accosied by some friend?, who had heard
of her coming, and kindly offered her the
hospitalities of their home until she should
find a home elsewhere. A few hours la
ter, her friends, wishing to show her some
attention, invited her to go aboard an
ocean steamer then lying in harbor. She
complied with the delight of a country
lass, and her curiosity was satisfied and
pleased by all she saw. A Liverpool
packet was lying beside the dock, and our
little party, desiring it, thought they
would visit it also. So, going aboard,
they walked up and down the deck.
Meanwhile, a littlo sailor boy a "jolly
tar," in technical language beckoned to
them, saying, "Oh! come into the cabin ;
you have not seen the best . part of out
ship." They followed him into a beauti
fully fitted-up saloon. Our heroine was
in ecstacica. A door opened at the other
end of the cabin, and a tall man approach
ed his nobla form and lordly bearing at
the same time impressing all . with the
feeling that he must be the captain of
the ship. Introductions ensued. In her
delight, our heroine exclaimed, "Oh ! I
should like to go to Europe on such a
ship." It was the deep voice of the cap
tain that answered, "Well, and can't
you if you vyill? "A3 your stewardess,
I suppose sir?" replied the young lady.
"As my wife!" exclaimed the master.
"As your wife, sir!" cried the damsel in
no feigned, astonishment, "you must be
joking !" 'Oso ! I am not," exclaimed
the captain, "I mean every word of it !"
On the instant the color rprang to the
cheek of the young girl her heart beat
rapidly. "Could ho mean it ?" Conceal
ing the emotions of her heart, she stood
buried in thought. The Captain mean
while took her friend aside, and showed
him letters of credence from some of the
most respectable firms in Europe. Then,
returning, he anxiously aw-aited a favora
ble response. She, with trepidation, ask
ed for a few hours to consider this unex
pected proposition, which was to be fraught
with such a remarkable change in her
condition, her hopes, her fears alternating
in her mind as she meditated. It was
finally agreed that ho should receive an
answer at 3 o'clock v. sr. At the appoint
ed time the Captain called, and with em
otions such as the tender sex only are sus
ceptible, she yielded her heart confidingly
to him who was to be her future lord,
anil to whom she had been but a few
hours before an utter stranger. And in a
few moments they were standing together,
bri lo and groom, she no longer the de
pendant, orphan country girl. What
thought must have whirled through her
brain as she journeyed some three hun
dred miles to her native village to tell the
wonderful story of her sudden change,
and make ready for her departure for
Europe (on her bridal tour), w hich was to
l)c in three days.
The residence of the orphan girl was a
village on the Erie Railroad, "where two
roads meet." The groom is Captain O-,
of the old Liverpool line of packets.
Mom; Infant Mii:di-:i:s. The Cam
bridge, Mass., whipping case was a pret
ty bad one, but here is something much
worse to record in a wholesale slaughter
of infants in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
It appears from the coroner's inquest that
Mrs. Rogers has received infants, gener
ally illegitimate, and from a month to a
year in age, to board. Sometimes she
had ns many as nine boarders of this class
at once. Last week she had six. There
was a coroner's inquest on one of them
last .Saturday. On Monday a neighbor
looked in and saw the unburied body,
black : covered with maggots, and the
eyes not closed. An infant then in the
woman's arms was apparently in a dying
condition. Of the one dead, a witness
expressed the opinion that the wretched
infant "had sucked its fingers to the bone,
and quite raw, in the agonies of starva
tion." Several similar vases were men
tioned in connection with this Ilerodian
hotel, or among infant boarders lately ta
ken away from Mrs. Rogers. The bill of
fare, to use the expression of the witness,
was Hour-gruel scared with milk." It
was also stated that some of the mothers
hoped the children would die, thus reliev
ing them of nying a dollar a week to the
woman. If the little sufferers had been
in I.iOuisiana, and "colored," we should
have had no such record as this. Even
Sumner, who has offered petitions for pi
anos, new shoe?, suffrage, or similar lux
uries from half the reconstructed negroes
in the country, has not seen fit to present
this Lawrence matter to the Senate.
A Pincknt Si.kmon. St. Jerome in
one of his sermons, rebuked the women
of his day in words so apropos to those
of modern times, that we cannot forbear
copy ing them :
Ah ! I shall tell you who are the wo
men that scandalize Christians. They
are those who daub their cheeks with red,
and their eyes with black those who
plaster their faces too white to be human,
reminding us of idols those who wimiot
shed a tear without its tracing a furrow
on fhe painted surface of their faces
those w hose ripe years fail to teach them
that they lira growing old those whose
head-dresses are made up of other peo
ple's hair those who chalk wrinkles in
to the counterfeit presentment of youth,
ami those who affect the demeanor of
bashful maidens in the presence of troops
of grand-children.
Dl'siies and Wkeds. August is a sea
son for the most elfective and deadly on
slaughts upon weeds and bushes. The
nature of most weeds is the first part of
the season to make tops, and afterwards
to concentrate their energies either upon
the production of seed or maturing their
roots, so as to live through the winter, if
cut in this dry hot weather it is
usually certain death. Even Butter-and-Eggs
(Litana), that most showy and
detestable of weeds, is sometimes killed
by thoroughly hoeing up in an August
drought. As for bushes, once cutting up.
and then letting the sheep browse off the
young shoots, will make an end of the
worst, even wild roses and blackberry
bushes. Do not let any weeds go to seed.
The season has been particularly favora
ble to crops of weeds, and without prop
er diligence it will take years to do away
with the harm that.rcay be doao if they
scatter their seeds.
What did the Soldiers Fight For. j
What did the soldiers of the Union
army fight for? A Republican newspa- j
per asks that question. We will try and
answer it in a few plain words. j
Says the Lancaster 1 nUHigenecr, when j
the flag, the symbol of the Union as form- !
cd by our fathers under the Constitution, j
was tired upon at Sumter, thou?ftnds of j
brave men rubbed to arms. For what ? j
Was it to' free the negroes ' Let the Rad- :
ieal Disunionists tell the returned veterans
that if they dare. When President Lin- i
j coin issued lus proclamation liveing nic 1
slaves, what was the rouud on which he 1
professed to stand? Was not the act jus
tified because it was believed -soldiers :
fought for the restoration of the Union, j
under the Constitution! That was the '
one groat, grand, holy object which they 1
kept singly in view. They did not light
to conquer equal rights for the nepro, and ',
in the coming elections they will show ,
their scorn. of that political party which j
would delay the restoration of the Union i
until the odious conditions of negro-suf- !
frage and negro-equality are forced upon j
an unwilling people. The. soldiers rend j
and think for themselves now, and they
cannot fail to see that the party which
nominated Geary is unequivocally com- j
milted to ail the infamous schemes of the !
Radicals in Congress. Whatever the sol- '
diets may think of Geary's military ree- ;
ord they cannot endorse his political po- ;
sition. -They cannot and will not vote j
with any parly which makes the I nion j
for which they fought sulordinate to no- j
gro equality. The soldiers fuught for the j
C nion, not lor the n
vote as they shot.
ro ; au.l they will
GiiAKY calls the Pennsylvania soldiers
who won't vote for him "Hessians, bounty-jumpers
and deserters." Can he forget
that he is a renegade from the Democrat
ic party and a eleserter from the cause of
the. Union ? He is nothing but a merce
nary in the Disunion ranks. lie bid for
the Democratic nomination, but failing in
that, he was content to be made the ig
ncible Di.-iinic'ii plundering tool of Thad
Stevens and d. d. Forney. lie is neither
a soldier nor a man who will belie and
slander those brave men who, lea ing
their wives and little ones to col l public
charity, took their lives in their hands,
and. grasping the. musket fought to the
end in the ranks of the Union, un-ehish
about honors or emoluments. lie who,
after having profited by the labors, sacri
fices and bravery of those men, and who
through political favoiiteism, was enabled
to amass .money, live at ease, sutler no
hardships, and steal their hard-earned
honors, should be the last person to abuse
and falsify the poor private soldiers.
Should the No Prefix candidate continue
to thus play the liar, blackguard and in
grate towards the soldiers who, as Union
men and true soldiers, refuse to cast their
votes for him, he may again have a cus
tard pie thrown into Ids face for his false
hoods, as was done late ly by an honora
bly ilit-charged soldier at York. P.ucking
and gagging and tying up private soldiers
by the thumbs may be done with impu
nity in the army by official tyrants and
hardheaded cowards, but as citizens the
"boy3 in blue" will not submit to be brow
beaten and belied hy Geary or any other
cx-niilitary official humbug.
A Fjuyii r.ai:. An affectionate mother
was recently calleij to yield back to God
her only surviving chill, a darling of un
usual promise. Her sorrows were deep
ami overwhelming. Her fondest hopes
were blasted. An esteemed friend, on
witnessing the emotions of her swelling
grief, remarked:
"I thank God that I have no child of
which to be bereaved."
Her admirable reply was, "I thank
God that I have been permitted to nurse
a child three years and four months for
Him."
God's dealings were indeed inscrutable.
The darkness of the Divine dispensation,
as it was lowered and settled down upon
her soul, filled her with anguish. Put a
heavenly ray penetrated the thick darkness
and taught her to look upward for conso
lation. Hers had been the privilege "to
nurse a child three years and four months
for the Lord."
Let those who are evil spoken of take
comfort. ' It is only at Iruit trees that
men throw stones. Whoever saw thieves
throw stones at the birch or maple tree ?
The more fruit a tree bears, and the rich
er it is, the more it is likely to attract the
attention of the thief. -

VOL. 13 NO. 24.
Scidiers of 1812.
In the elefeat of the resolution which
came up before the United States Houso
of Representatives on Friday last, tho
Radicals have fully proved their lack of
love and devotion for the "old defenders"
of our country.
The bill was "off-red by Hon. A. II.
Ce ffroth. from this State, for the purpose
of allowing -pensions to the soldiers of
1812. It was defeated, or rather post
poned indefinitely by a strict j arty vote,
the Democrats voting for and the. Radicals
against the Resolution.
"Men of 1S12 ! Mark these pretended
patriots of the present Congress. You
can see who are your real friends. Dy
voting fur the Republican ticket, you sup
port men who are oppurd to giving 3-011
a tiuall pittance for yourdislinguished ser
vices in driving the Drilish soldiery from
our soil, in their attempt to destrey our
iuLtitulions.
You who marched on foot from Cum
berland county to Fort Erie, and endur
ed all the privations incident to those
early days, know full well, how much the
people of this country are indebted to yon
for your services in bravely fighting our
country's battles "in the days that tried
men's souls." If Mr. Ceffroth's resolu
tion would have been to give every negro
in the country a pension, the Radicals
would have voted solid for if, but because
the old white veterans of 1M2, ask this
Miiail favor for their support in their ele
clining years, they arc to be deprived of
it because they are so unfortunate as to
be "-?.V." Knowing the motives of
these political intriguers, and that their
candidate for Govei jioi, John . Geary,
endorses all their acts in and out of Con
gress, acquit yourselves like men, by giv
ing j our support to the men and the party
which defended you during the campaign
of 1812, and have continued your f iends
ever since. The same party which de
nounced the war at that time, wiihholl
their support from the few remaining pa
triots of to-day.
Although your numbers are f, w, vou
have an influence which can be wielded
to great effect in advancing the principles
of the party which has ever defended the
interests of the soldier and the poor.
In the coming campaign let your feeble
voices be heard in giving counsel and ad
vice to the supporters of the great Demo
cratic party, and by electing men of talent
aiid honesty to all positions of responsi
bility, and by changing the political as
pect of our Congress, you will be reward
ed f r your services. Keep the present
party in power and you who are in neces
sitous circumstances will be obliged to go
down to your graves in poverty, while the
negro basks in the sunshine of prosperity
and lives in the mansion of the rich.

AiTiiouuv ok the Dinr.E. "The
mother of a family, says Rev. Adolph
Monod, "was married to an infidel, who
made jest of religion in the presence of
his own children ; yet she succceeled in
bringing them all up in the fear of Uic
Lord. I asked her one day how she pre
served them from the influence of a fath
er whose sentiments were so opposed to
her own. This was her answer: "lie
cause to the authority of a father I do not
oppose the authority of a mother, but

to know if it was true that he offered to
