TWENTY YEARS AGO, I've wandered to the village, Tom, I've sat beneath the tree Upon the school house play ground, That sheltered you and me; But none were left to greet me, Tom, And few were left to know, Who played with us upon the green Just twenty years ago. The grass was just ac green, Tom, Barefooted boys at play Were sporting, just as we had been, With spirits just as gay. But the master sleeps upon the hill, Which, coated o'er with snow, Afforded us a sliding place Some twenty years ago. The old sehool•hoose is altered some; The benches are replaced By new ones very like the same Our jack•knives had defaced. But the same old brick are in the wall, The boll swings t 6 and fro, Ito music's just the same, dear Tom, 'Twas twenty years ago. The spring that bubbled 'neath the hill Close by the spreading beach, Is very low ; 'Loan once so high That we could scarcely reach ; And kneeling down to get a drink, Dear Tom, I started so, To think bow very much I've changed Since twenty years ago. Near by that spring upon an elm, You know I cut you name, Your sweetheart's just beneath it, Tom, • And you did mine the same. Sonic heartless wretch haspcaled the bark 'Tons dying, sure, but slow, Just as that ono whose name you cut Some twenty years ago.

In compliance with the resolution of the Temperance Alliance, of Huntingdon, the 'undersigned begs leave to report: That the Act of Bth of May, 1854, commenli called the BIAALEW Law; the Act of 26th Feb ruary. commonly called the SUNDAY Law, and the Act of 31st of March, .1856, the present LICENSE Law, ,contain nearly the whole rtatutary law now in force in Penn• sylvania, attempting, regulating and re stricting the use of intoxicating liquors. The last named Act expressly excepts from Its repealing clause, the Buckolew law and the Sunday law, and declares they shall be and remain in full force. The Act of Bth of May, 1854, is highly penal ; the first section declares the ' , wilfully fur nishing intoxicating drinks by sale, gift or otherwise to any person of known intem perate habits, to a minor, or to an insane person for use as a beverage, a misdemea nor, and upon conviction thereof the offen der shall be fined not less than ten nor more than fifty dollars, and undergo an imprison ment of not less than ten nor more than six ty days ; and the wilful furnishing of in toxicating drinks as a beverage to any per son when drunk or intoxicated, shall be deemed a misdemeanor, punishable as a , foresaid." The next section provides "that , any member of the family, or blood relation of an intemperate person, or any overseer of the poor, or any magistrate of the district, or the committee of a drunkard, may give notice, verbal, or written, to any person making, selling or having intoxicating li quors, forbidding him or them from turish ing such intemperate person with intoxi cating drinks; and if within three months after such notice any one to whom same is given, shall furnish or cause to be fti'nish. ed intoxicating liquor to such intemperate person to bo used as a beverage, he shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof, shell be punished as provided in the first section of the act." The third section is general in its provi sions, and makes ..any and every person responsible civilly for any injury to per son or property in consequence of furnish ing intoxicating drinks in violation of any existing law, and any and every person ag grieved may recovery full damages against the person so furnishing, by an taloa On the case, instituted its the proper Court." " LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND PORIVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE." HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, MARCH 52, 1857. The fourth section prohibits "any Judge, I justice, or clergyman from performing the marriage ceremony between parties when either of them is intoxicated, under a pen alty of fifty dollars, and imprisonment not exceeding sixty days." The fifth section prohibits the "adulter ation and corruption of liquors made or in tended as i beverage, whereby the same are rendered noxious and injurious to health ; and the sale of such adulteratedyli quote, with the knowledge that they are such, under the penalty of $5O for the first and $lOO for subsequent offences, and im prisonment not exceeding sixty days." The sixth section provides that "the Court shall allow any person prosecuting an offender to conviction for violation of this law, a sum not exceeding $2O for his expenses and services, to be taxed and paid as part of the costs of the case, such al -1 lowance to be in addition to his compensa tion as a witness in the case." The seventh section deolares that "no suit or action can be maintained for liquors sold in 'violation of any law of this Coin- . monwealth, and the eighth section author izes the Court -'to revoke the license, when any person holding a license shall be pro ved to have violated any law of this Com monwealth relating to the sale of liquors, or whenever the premises of such person shall become the resort of idle and disorder ly persons so as to disturb the general peace of the neighborhood, upon notice given to person licensed." Such are the provisions of the Act of 1854—any town or neighborhood that will enforce this law will become a temperance community in six weeks, for if the sale of intoxicating liquors to minors and persons of intemperate habits is stopped, as it can be by this law, drunkenness is at an end at once. The first section of the Aot oftGth of February, 1855, makes it unlawful for g.any person or persons to sell, trade or bar ter in any spiritous or malt liquors, wine or cider, on the first day of the week, com• monly tolled Sunday ; or for the keeper 11.141...14. L0w..., oh, hoar.. boor- house, or other public house or place, knowingly to allow or permit any spirits-' ous or malt liquors, wine or cider, to be drank on or within the premises or house occupied or kept by such keepers, his, her or their agents or servants, on the said first day of the week." The •second section provides that "any person or persons violating the provisions of the foregoing section, shall for each and every offence forfeit and pay the sum of •50—one•half of which shall be paid to the prosecutor and the other half to the Guar dians of the Poor, to be recovered before any mayor, alderman, burgess or justice of the peace, as debts of like amount are now by law recoverable." The third section provides that in ad dition to the "civil penalties imposed by the last preceding section for a violation of the rrovisions of the first section of this Act, every person Who shall violate the provisions of that section shall be taken and deemed to have committed a misdemeanor, and shall on conviction thereof in any criminal Court of this Commonwealth, be fined in any sum not less than ten nor more than ono hundred dollars, and be imprison• ed in the County jail for a period not less than ten nor more than sixty days." Such are the provisions of this humane law; while it protects the sacred hours of the Sabbath from the contamination of a sinful business, it affords rest to him. who sells and him who drinks intoxicating li goons. "The way of the transgressor is hard," and no one more than he needs one day in seven to rest. The third and last statute referred to is the Act of 81st March, p 856, containing thirty-five sections. We shall only give a summary of the law, without referring in detail to its various provisions. Instead of sales by a not less measure than a quart, as attempted in former laws, this law prohibits all sales by less measure than a gallon, by venders of vinous, spirit. ous, malt or brewed liquors, either with or without other goods, wares and merchan dire, under a retailer's license, and in creases the price of the license to sell by the gallon to double the rate of the Act of Bth of May, 1841. end "in no case shall such license be less theta $50." It also classifies all breweries and distilleries and increases the price of the Fcense for the same, double the rate of the Act of 10th of April 1849, and in no case is such license to be less than $5O, nor shall such license authorize sales by them of less than five gallons, mei* malt and brewed liquors, which may be bottled and delivered in quantities not less than one dozen bottles. It authorizes the Courts of Quarter liiss sions to grant tavern licenses at the first and second sessions in each year, upon the e proper applications, and provides that ob jections to such applications for license may be heard by evidence, petition, remon strance or counsel. The Clerk of the Court shall publish thorn three times in two newspapers of the county, the names of all such applicants, their respective res idences, and kind of license. The petition, its under former laws, must be signed by twelve citizens, certifying to the necessity of the tavern, to the honest and temperate character of the applicant, &c. The 9th section requires that the tavern-keeper must have in cities and county-towns, for the exclusive use of travellers, at least four bed-rooms and eight beds, and in any other part of the State at least two bed rooms and four beds for such use. No provision is made for feeding the hungry traveller or his horse. Liquor to drink and a bed to lie down on, is all the law requires. The tenth section provides that before any license for the sale of liquors under the prbvisions of this' Act shall be granted, such person applyitrg for the same shall give a bond to the Commonwealth of Penn sylvania, with two suffieient sureties in the sum of one thousand dollars when the li cense shall be above the seventh class, and in five hundred dollars for all in and below that class, conditioned for the faithful ob servance of all the laws of this Common. wealth relating to the business of the prin cipal obliger, and a warrant to confess judg ment, which bond, &0., shall be approved by the said Court, and filed in the Clerk's office ; and whenever a judgment for any forfeiture or fine shall have been recovered or conviction had for any violation of the provisions of this act, or any other law for the observance of which said bond shall be conditioned, it shall be the duty of the District Attorney of the proper county, to enter up judgment and institute suit there on, and thereupon the same proceedings shall be had and with the like effect and with the same cats as now p-ovided by law in the ease of forfeited bonds and re cognizances, in the several counties of the Commonwealth. The bond to be given by .tho kattpera of eating 4. .stall in all cases be in the sum of five hundred dollars. • ..... l'he fourteenth section pi.ovideethat no license shall be granted for the keeping of eating houses, except when they may be necessary for the accommodation of the public and traveller..., and shall only au thorize the sale of domestic wines, malt or brewed liquors. By the 28th section the penalty for a violation of any of the provisions of this law, shall be a fine of not less than ten nor more than one hundred dollars, and upon a second conviction, imprisonment of not less than one nor more than three months; and a forfeiture of his license if such offen der had license, and incapacity from re. ceiving another license for hve years there. after. The 29th section provides that any per son who shall be found intoxicated in any street, highway, public house or public place, shall be fined upon view of or upon proof made before any mayor, alderman or justice of the peace. not exceeding five dol. lars, to be levied with the proper costs upon the goods and chattles of the defendant. The 30th section provides that any per , son wh ) shall sell spirituous or other intox icating liquors, to any person who shall drink the same on the premises When sold and become thereby intoxicated, shall be sides his liability in damager, under any existing law, be fined five dollar s, for every such offence to be recovered by any wife, husband, parent, child, reletion, or guardi an of the person so injured, to be levied on the goods, &c., of the defendant, without exemption. By the Slot section, the Court is author ized to award to the prosecutor a reasonable part not exceeding one•third of the penalty imposed on conviction of any offender, and the residue as well as the proceeds' of all forfeited bonds as aforesaid shall be paid to the directors of the public schools of the proper district—nnr shall this prevent the prosecutor from being r witness in the case. By the 3sd section the Constables of the boroughs and townships shall make return of the retailers of liquors, and in addition thereto, it shall be the duty of every con stable each time of the Court of Quarter Sessions of the respective counties, tb make return on oath or affirmation, whe ther within his knowledge there is any place within his bailiwick, kept and main tained in violation of this act, and it shall be the especial ditty of the Judges of all said Courts to see that this return is faith fully made ; and if any person shall make known, in writing, with his or her name subsctibed thereto, to such constable, the name or names of any one who shall have violated this act, witltthe names of wit nesses ivho can prove the facts, it shall lac his duty to make return hereof on oath to the Court, and upon his wilful failure to do so, he shall be deemed guilty of a mis demeanor. and upon conviction shall pay a fine of fifty dollars, and be subject to im prisonment not less than ten nor more than thirty days in the county jail. Section 84th makes it a misdemeanor punishable with fine, and for the second offence fine and imprisonment, for any per son engaged in the manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquors, to employ or permit any intemperate person in any way to as- I recti on. last in such manufacture or sale.

An Arkansas Joke, An Arkansas correspondent of the New Orleans Picayune tells the following good In early time:, in a county not far off these dram shops were common, as they were all over the State, where the b'hoys met every Saturday evening to shoot for whiskey and get drunk; and cool off with a fight or two. On one of these occasions a big strapping six footer full of "bust head" and Dutch courage, having been beat at the mark by another, slapped his fists together, and swore he was "spiting for a fight," and could whip any man that could beat him shooting. This was not noticed by the man for whom it was intended. That of course, made him braver and madder. He roar ed out . I kin whip any blink•eyed sucker who kin beat me shooting—whoop ee !" The man aimed at still said nothing.— Six-footer here biled over—so he walked right up to him, shook his fists in his face and anid '•You kin shoot, km yout but you dar'n's to fight me—l'm a unanimous hor bee ! W hoopee !" The man addressed still said nothing. Six footer roared again the louder, and said he must have a fight if he had 'to buy "Look 'ere! Sfickemgoeusy, if you'll give me u fair fight I'll give you a cow and calf." Slickem deliberately began to strip.... Says he "if thar's anything to be made I'm in. Six-footer-turned a little pale-- couldn't back down now—struck a ring— pitched in, and Six footer got most con• foundedly and soundly thrashed. Rose shook the dirt off and swore he wouldn't pay "for 'iwarn't in the bargain he was to be swolloped." Slickem said .I'll sue you." "Sue away !" said Six-tooter; and mounted his bear skin and rode off. Slickcm went to the county seat, saw a lawyer told him his case ; lawyer told him it Was a good case, and he would gain it for him; told him to funk° out an account 'for labor done,' and sue before a justice of the peace Ile did so ; justice of the peace gave judgment for plaintiff; and or dered the constable to drive I,he cow and the calf to him. Here it rested. The de fendant was heard to say ; ' , Well, I reckon that moot be law, but my losing that cow and calf all come o' my not kivering all the pints in the trade, repose!"

Jim Ward is a conductor on the Eastern Division of the New York Central Rail road running daily between Utica and Al bany. Ward has been in the employ of the Central Railroad for a long period of years, and is one of the oldest conductors in the country. Invariably accommodating and polite, he is particularly attentive to ladies, and always manages to make him self a favorite with those of the fair vex who accompany the trains under his . di- had her conveyed thereto. A physician by the name of Beecher was on the train, His services were immediately put in re quisition, and in a short time Ward had the pleasure of announcing•to his anxious passsengers, that mother and babe were "doing as well as could he expected under the circumstances." The mother was a poor woman, and as soon as it became known, Ward went a round with a hat and in short time a hand some purse was collected, and Jim with his countenance absolutely filtering off hap. piness, took it into the mother. After he re-appeared the passengers proposed that the child be named. No sooner said than done. Jim went in and got the baby, with the consent of its delighted mother, brought it ought, when it was proposed that it should be named "James Ward," after Jim, and Beecher, afterthe physi cian who had professionally attended the mother. It was adopted by acclamation, the babe was named "James Ward Beech er —." Jim with a smile of ill-con cealed delight, was lugging off his little namesake, when some or the ladies reques ted to see the “little baby." It was pass ed mini hand to Land arum,' th. admiring the little bundle, but at the same time a general disposition to smile and stuff handkerchiefs in their mouths, be. came manifest among the women—Jim I wondered but wondered in vain, what this subdued laughter meant, until the babe was handed to an old lady. She had not had it more than a minute or two when she exclaimed. "Law, Suz !" "Well, what's the matter," saia Jim, fearfully. 'Why, it's a gal !" said the old woman, bonding the babe to Jim. Then rose a yell of laughter; the men broke out first, then the women then they broke out tcgether until one universal scream filled the car. Several gentlemen threw their hats and mufflers out of the windows, while others endeavored, unsuc cessfully, to 'saw their legs off.'—'l'he wo men blushed and screamed ; the men shouted and held their sides. In the midst of this storm of fun and laughter, Jim made his escape from the car with his female "Jim Ward Beecher," and, for the rest of the trip, on the platfarni of the baggage carruminated on the changes and imitations of human life.—Buf. Paul's Salary. At a meeting of the American Board, Dr. Bacon 'made a spicy allusion to this to pic. Perhaps our readers would like to see the thought as first stated by grand old Saurin, (Sermon on 1 Cor. ix. 20, 27:) "It was in this light, that God set the min istry before Paul at first: "I will show him how great things he must suffier for my name's sake." Show linn how great things ho must suffer,for my name's sake! 'What a motive to engage a man to undertake en office ! Now.a-days, in order to give a great idea of a church, it is said : It has such and such advantages, so much la cash so much in small titles, and so much in great titles. St. Paul saw the ministry on-1 ly as a path filled with thorns and briers, and he experienced through all tht course of his life, the truth of that idea which was given him of his office. Hear the cata logue of his sufferings : "Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one, r Thrice was I beaten with rode, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day have I been in the deep. In journeyings often, in perils of water, in pe rils of robbers, in perils by my own coun trymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils -in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false bre ' thren. In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst in fas tinge often in cold and nakedness." Good God ! what a salary for a minister !

A Chapter on Murders.—The Love of Notoriety. Murders seem not to ~c ome singly, but in battalions." The New York murder was followed promptly by the one at Hing ham, one of the most quiet of places; then one in Altoona, one at Groton Junction, and another in Manchester, N. H. Severe and denunciatory newspaper comments do to one. &Ise.. :raga:ft...y-441f1m, but rather operate as a stimulus to the evils deprecated. 'the love of notoriety is a strong feeling with ninny, and they will ob tain it sometimes at any cost. Newspa pers should discontinue 'their romantic de tails of murders and murderers. The hid eousness should be unrelieved by any invi , ling circumstances for no such circumstan ces can naturally be coupled with it. No puling or morbid philanthropy should in terpose to save the Riurderer from his just doom. After his guilt is fairly proved, we should have his seqtence pronounced with the brief emphasis of Richard—" Off with his head ;" for we think society cannot be protected but by this summary vengeance.
