Land of ply firth than art far away,
My eyes thou cant not bless !
Thou'at vanished from thy votary,
Like youthful happiness.
I stand alotie,land think of thee,
While on the sea I pore,
And all my dreams, with eestacy,
Revert to thy loved shore!
When listening to the ocean's roar, .
I'm filled with trembling joy,—
And dreamed myself at Gone once more,
And when I was a boy.
And in the wind I seem to hear
Thy linden's rustling leaf,
Whose grateful shade was want to cheer
The school-boy's transient grief.
In its tumultuous, noisy - Way,
The mountain stream doth blend
With its discourse, exultant, gay,
The name of each old friend.
The sound of bells upon thy'h.erds,
By ocean borne along.
Brings to fond memory the words
Of s- familia: song.
I hear the bird sing on the spray—
The murmur of the tree,
Whose rustling branches, in 'their play,
Sti:l cry : "I.emember me 1"
The sea, alone, with its rough swell,
Connects aze still with thee
And on its shore, as sad farewell,
I kiss tke last tall tree.
Adoringly I think of thee,
To me forever dear

A .PLCTURE FROM THE HOS
HOW curt SOLDIERS LIVE AND DIE.
In a, number c yf the Boston Limmon
wealth we find t to following sketch of a
scene in one of the army hospitals at
Washington, from the pen of Louisa M.
Alcoa, of Boston, who performs the du
of a nurse:
• One evening I found a latel ) y lemptted
bed occupied by a large fair mad, with a
tine face and the serenest eyes I ever met.
One of the earlier comets had often spoken
of a friend who had remained behind that
those worse wounded than himself might
reach a shelter first. It seemed a David
:and Jonathan sort of friendship. The
man fretted for his mate, and was never
tired of praising J ohn, his courage, sobri
c:y, self denial and unfailing kindliness
' of heart, always winding up :
l an out and out fine feller, ma'aw, you see
if he ain't." I had some curiosity to be
hold this piece of exec-Hence. and when
he came, watched him for a night or two
before I wade friends with him ; for, to
tell the truth, I was a little afraid of the
stater• looking wan 'whose bed had to be
lengthened to aceximmodate his ctm•
banding stature, who seldom spoke, in-:
tered no word Of complaint, asked no sym
pathy, but tranquilly observed what went
on about him ; and, as he lay high upon
his pillows, no picture of dying statesman!
or warrior was ever fuller of real dignity
than this Virginia blacksmith.
A most attractive face he had, framed
[in brown hair and bearded, cowely-fea
' tured and full of vigor as yet unsubdued
by pain, thoughtful and often beautifully
mild while watching the afflictions -of
others, as if entirely forgetful of his own.
His mouth "was grave and firm with plenty
of will and courage in its lines, but a
smile could wake it sweet as any woman's;
lane his eyes were child's eyes, looking
Lyon fairly in the face, with a straightfor
ward glance, whiCh promised - well for such
l as placed their faith in-him. He ,seemed
!Ito cling to life as if it were rich in duties i
!'and delights, and he had learned . the se-1
leret of content. The only time I saw his!
[ composure disturbed was when my sur
geon brought another to examine John, I
who serutinized their faces with an anx
ious look, asking of the elder: "Do you
think I shall pull through, sir?" "I
hope so, my man." And as the two'
passed on, John's eyes still followed them I
with an intentness which would have won
a clearer answer from them, had they seen
it.. A momentary shadow flitted over his
face, then came the usual serenity as if in
that brief eclipse he had acknowledged!
i,he existence of some hard possibility,'
and, wiring nothing yet hoping all things,
left the issue in God's hand, with thai
submission which is true piety
The next night, as I went my rounds
with Dr. P—, I happened to ask which
man in the room probably suffered most,
and to my great surprise he glanced at
"Every breath be draws is like a stab;
for the ball pierced the left lung, broke a
rib, and did no end of damage here and
there; . so the poor lad can find neither
forgetfulness nor ease, because he must
lie on his wounded baCk sitffodate. It
be a hard Struggle, and a long one,
for be possesses' great vitality, but even

his temperate life can't save him. I
wish it could."
"Yon don't mean be mnsi die, doctor !"
"Bless you, there's not the slightest
Lope for him, and you'd better tell him
so before long—women have a way of
doing such things comfortably, so I leave
it to you. He won't last more than a day
or two, at farthest."
I could have sat down on the spot and
cried heartily, if I had not learned the.
wisdom of bottling up one's tears for leis
ure moments. Such an end seemed very
bard for such a man, when half a dozen
worn out, worthless bodies round him
were gathering up the remnants of- wasted
lives to linger on for years, perhaps bur
dens to others, daily reproaches to them
selves. The army needed men like John,
earnest, brave and faithful, fighting for
liberty and justice with both heart and
hand, a true soldier of the Lord. I could
not give him up so soon, or think with
any patience of so excellent a nature rob
bed of its fufilment, and blundered into
eternity by the rashness or stupidity of•
those at whose hands so many liv'es may
be required. It was an easy thing for
Dr. P— to say, "Tell him be must die,"
but a erue'ly hard thing to do, and by no i
means as "comfortable" as he politely I
suggested. I had not the heart to do it
thee, and privately indulged the hope that
some change for the better might fake!
place, in spite of gloomy prophesies, so;
rendering my task unnecessary.
A SHORT AND SIMPLE STORY.
After that night, an hour of each even
ing that remained to him, was devoted to
his ease or pleasure. He could not talk
much, for breath was precious and he
spoke in whispers, but from occasional
conversations I gleaned scraps of private
history which only added to the affection
and respect I felt for him. Once he asked
me to write a letter, and as I settled pen
and paper, I said with an irrepressible
glimmer of female curiosity, "Shall it be
addressed to wife or mother, John ?"
•ither ma'am ; I've get no wife, and
will write to mother myself when I get
better. Did you think I was married
because of this ?" he a.,ked,- touching a
plain ring he wore, and often turned
thoughtfully on his finger when he lay
"Partiv that, bat more from a settled
sort of look you have, which young men
seldom get until they marry."
"k didn't know the:, but I'm not so
very younf_z, wa'r.m—thirty in May r and
have been what you might call settled
this ten years, for mother's a widow. I'm
the oldest child she has, and it wouldn't
do for we to marry till Lizzy has a home
of her own, and Laurie's learned his
trade; for we're not rich, and I must be
father to the children and husband to the
dear old woman, if I cvn."
"No doubt you are bath; John. vet how
came you to go to the war, if you felt so?
Wagn't enlisting as bad as u - arrYing?"
'No ma'am, not as I see it; for one is
helping wy neighbor. the other pleasing
myself. I went because I couldn't limp
it. I didn't want the glory or the pay, I
wanted tile right thing done, and people
kept saying the men who were in earnest
ought to fight. I was in earnest, the
Lord knows, but I held off 'as long as I
could, not knowing which was my duty.
Mother saw the case, gave me her ring
to keep me steady, and said 'go ;' so I .
A SOLDIER'S PRIDE
"Do you ever regret that you came
when you lie here suffering so much ?"
"Never, ma'am. I haven't helped a
great deal, but I've shown I was willing
to give my life, and perhaps I've got to;
but I don't blame anybody, and if it was
to do over again, I'd do it. I'm a little
sorry I wasn't wounded in front. It looks
cowardly to be hit in the back, but I
obeyed orders, and it don't matter in the
end, I know."
Poor John ! it did not matter now, ex
cept that a - shot in front' might have
spared the agony in store for him. He
seemed to read the thought that troubled
me, as he Spoke so hopefully when there
was. no hope, for he suddenly added :
"ThiS is my first baitle—do they
it's going to be my last ?"
''f'm afraid they do-, John."
It was the hardest question I had ever
been called upon to answer; .doubly hard
with those . clear eyes fixed on mine, forc
ing a truthful answer by their own truth
Efe seemed a little startled at first, pon
dered over the fateful fact a moment, then
shoal; his head with a glance at the broad
chest and muscular limbs stretched out
before him. •
"I'm not afraid, but it's difficult to be
lieve all at once. I'm so strong it don't
seem possible for such a little wound to
TUE LAST LETTER
"Shall I write to your mother now ?"
I asked, thinkiii - er. that these sudden fi
dings might clZge all plans and put.-
pies ; but they did riot; for the man re
ceit'ed the order of the Divine Commander
to march with the same unrinestionin
obedience with which the soldier bad re
delved that of the human one, doubtless
remembering that the Exit led him to life,
the last to death. '
"No, ma'am, to Laurie, just the same;
he'll break it to her best, and I'll add a
line to her myself when you bet done."
So I wrote tht letter which be dictated,
finding it better than any I had sent, for,
though here and 'there a little ungram
matical or inelegant, each sentence came
to me briefly worded, but most expressive,
full of excellent counsel to the boy, ten
derly-bequeathing "mother and Lizzie"
to his care, and bidding him good-bye in
words the sadder for their simplicity. He
added a few lines with, steady hand, and
as I sealed it, said, with a patient sort of
sigh, "I hope the answer will come in
time for me to see it" , then, turning
away his face, laid the flowers against his
lips, as if to hidesome quiver of emotion
at the thought of such a sundering of all
the dear home ties.
These things had happened two days
before. Now, John was dying and the
letter had not come. I bad been suiu
moned to many death beds in my life, but
to none that made my heart ache . as it
did then, since my 'mother called melt()
watch the departure of a spirit akin to
this,in its gentleness and patient strength.'
As I went in John stretched out both
"I knew you'd come 4 . I guess I'm
MOVID"'OrI, ma'am." •
He was, and so rapidly that even while;
he-spoke over his face I saw the gray veil
falling that tO mortal hand can lift. I
sat-down by him, wiped, the drops from;
his forehead, stirred the air about him!
with the slow wave of a fan, and waited 1
to help him die. He stood in sore need
Id help, and I could do so little; for, as
!the doctor had foretold, the strong body
!rebelled against death, and fought every
inch of the way, forcing him to drdw each
breath- with a spasm, and clench his hands
with an imploring look, as if he s askedd
"How long must I endure this and be,
stil.. For hours he suffered dumbly I
t without a moments murmuring. His
!limbs grew cold, his lips white, and again
and .again he tore the covering WI his'
!breast, as if the lightest weight added to
Ibis agony;. yet, thicugh it all, his eyes!
!never lost their perfect serenity, and the:
wan's soul seemed to sit therein, un- 1
daunted by the ills that vexed his flesh. I
One by one the men woke, aid around
the room appeared a circle of pale faces
and watchful eyes,, full of awe and' pity;
for though a stranger, John was beloved
by all. Each than there had wondered
at his patience, respected his piety, ad.
mired his fortitude, and now lamented
his hard death ; for the influence of an
upright nature had made itself deeply felt
even in one week. Presently the Jona.
than who so loved this comely David
came creeping from his. bed fur a_last look
and word. The kind soul was full of
trouble, as the choke in his vi),ie . e, the
r , rasp of his hand betrayed ; but there
*ere no tears, and the farewell of the
friends was the, more touching for its
"Old boy, how are you Y' faltered the

"Can I say or do anything for you.
any - wheres?"
"Take my things home, and tell them
that I did thy best."
"I will! I Win :"
"Good bye, Ned."
"Good bye, John, good bye!"
They kissed each other tenderly as
women, and so parted; for poor Ned could
not stay to see his comrade die. For a
little while there was no sound in the
room but the sound of water from a stump
I or two, and John's distressful gasps as he
slowly brerthed his life away. I thought
him nearly gone, and had just laid down
the fan, believing its help to be no longer
' needed, when suddenly he rose up in his',
bed, and cried out with a bitter erg- that
broke the silence, sharply startling evervj
one with its ag.onited appeal : "For God's I
sake, give 'me air!'
It was the only er:y that pain or death,
had wrung from him, the only boon hei
asked, and none of us could grant it, fOri
all the airs that blow were useless now.
Dan flung np the window, the first red
streak bf dawn was warming the grey
east, a herald of the cominf , sun. John
saw it, and with the lore of light, which
lingers in us to the end, seemed to read
in it a sign of hope of help, for over his
whole face there broke that mysterious
expression, .brighter . than any smile,
which often ecines to eyes that look their
last. He laid himself gently down, and
stretching out his strong right-arm,- as-if
to grasp and bring the blessed.air to his
lips in fuller flow, lapsed into a merciful .
unconsciousness, which assured us that
for him suffering was forever past.
As We'stood looking at him, the ward
master handed the a letter; saying it had
been forgotten the night before. It Was
John's letter, came just an hoar to late

lo.ged for it so eagerly—yet he, had it;
fo after I had cut some brown locks for
