THE THREE HOMES.
" Where is thy home ?" I asked a child,
Who in the morning air,
Was twining flowers most sweet and wild
In garlands for her hair.
"My home" tha happy heart replied,
And smiled in childish glee,
"Is on the sunny mountain side,
Where soft winds wander free."
Oh ' blessings fall on artless youth,
And ull its rosy hours,
When every word is joy and truth'
And treasures live in flowers !
Where is thy home ?" I asked of one
ho bend, with blushing face,
To hear the warrior's tender tone,
„ In the wild- wood's secret place.
She spoke not but her varying cheek
The tale might well impart;
The home of her young spirit meek,
Was in a kindred heart.
Ah; souls that well might soar above
To earth will fondly cling,
And build their hopes on human love,
That light and fragile thing
'• Where is thy home, thou lonely man V
I asked a pilgrim grav,
Who came with furrowe I brow, and wan,
Slow musing OH his way.
He paused, and with a solemn mein
"The land I seek thou ne'er has seen—
My home is in the skies!"
Oh blest—thrice blest! the heart must be
To whom such thoughts are given,
That walks from worldly fetters free—
Its only home in Heaven !
WELCOME LO VF LY MAY.
BY G. WASHINGTON IIARDWICK.
Sweet May comes dancing o'er the plain,
And Bnys in a gentle voice,
" Through the April rain I come again,
To make the earth rejoice."
And woods, and hills, and rippling rills,
In chorus seem to say,
In a joyous song, as she floats along,
" A welcome to lovely May."
The merry green woo Is nre quickly dressed,
With a rich, luxuriant bloom:
And the balmy bre ze from the greenwood trees
Gomes with rich perfume ;
And birds and bees on the blossoming trees,
While flitting from spray to spray,
Join in the song and the sound prolong,
" A welcome to lovely May."
The meadows lie all spangled o'er
With flowers of various hues.
A shimmering sheen, so gay and green,
Refreshed by the morning dews;
And man and beast, from west to east,
Each in their language say,
Each understood by tho Giver of good,
'• A welcome to lovely May."

A NOBLE REPARATION.
" Are you returning immediately to Wor
cester? 6aid Lady Leslie, a widow residing
near ihat city, to a young officer who was
paying her a morning visit.
" I am, can I do anything for you there ?"
' Tes ; you can do me a great kindness.—
my confidential servant, Baynes, is gone out
for the day and night; and Ido not like to
tru3t my new footman, of whom I know noth
ing, to put this letter ; n the post-office, as it
contains a fifty pound note."
" Indeed ! that is a large 6um to trust to
"•Yes; but I am told it is the safest con.
veyance. It is however, quite necessary that
a person whom I can trust should put the let
ter m the box."
"Certainly," replied Captain Freeland
Then with an air that showed he considered
himself as a person to be trusted, he deposit
ed the letter in safety in his pocket-bock,
and took his leave ; promising he would re
turn to dinner the next day, which was Sat
On his road Freeland met some of his
brother officers, who were going to pass the
day and night at great Malvern ; and as they
earnestly pressed him to accompany them, he
wholly forgot the letter entrusted to his care ;
and having dispatched his servant to Worces
ter for bis sac de unii, and other things, he
turned back with his companions, and pussed
the rest of the day in that sauntering but
amusing idleness which may be reckoned
comparatively virtuous, if it leads to tho for
getfulness of little duties only and is not at
tended by the positive infringment of greater
ones. But not putting this important letter
into the post, as he had engaged to do, Free
land violated a real duty; and be might have
put it in at Malvern had not the reincounter
with hia brother officers banished the com
mission given him entirely from his thoughts.
Nor did he remember it till, as they rode
through the village the next morning, on
their way to Worcester, they met Lady Les
-1 e in the road.
At sight of her, Freeland recollected, with
shame and confusion, that be bad not fulfill-

TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, J 863.
Ed the charge committed to him, an? fain
would he hava passed her unobserved : for
as she was a woman of high fashion, great
talents, and some severity, he was afraid that
his negligence, if avowed, would not only
cause him to forfeit her favor, but expose
him to her powerful sarcasm.
To avoid being recognized was however,
impossible; and as soon as Lady Leslie saw
him, she exclaimed:
" Oh, Captain Freeland, I am so glad to
see you ! I have been quite uneasy concern
ing my letter since I placed it in your care,
for it was of such consequence. Did you
put it into the post yesterday ?"
"Certainly," replied Freeland hastily, and
in the hurry of the moment—"certainly.
How could you, dear mafti, doubt my
obediednce to your commands ?"
" Thank you, thank you !" she cried.—
" How you have relieved my mind."
He had so; but he had painfully burthen
ed his own. To be sure, it was only a white
lie—the lie of- fear. Still he was not used to
uttering falsehoods, and he felt the meanness
and degradation of this.* He had yet to learn
that it was mischievous also, and that none
presume to say where the consequences of
the most apparently trivial lie will end. As
soon as Freeland parted with Lady Leslie, he
bade his friends farewell, and put'ing spur to
his horse, scarcely slackened his pace till he
had reached a general post-office and depos
ited the letter in safety.
"Now then," thought he, "I hope I shall
be able to return and dine with Lady Leslie
without shrinking from her penetrating eye.'*
He found her, when be arrived, very pen
sive and absent ; so much so that she felt i l
necessary te apologize to her guests, inform
ing them that Mary Benson, an old servant
of hers, who was very ill, and painfully cir
cumstanced, and that she feared she had not
done her duty to her.
"To tell you the truth, Captain Freeland,"
she said speaking to him in a low voice. "I
blame myself for not sending for my confiden
tial servant, who was not very far oft, and
dispatched him with the money, instead of
trusting it to the post."
"It would have been better to have done

" Yes ; for the poor woman to whom I sent
it is not only herself in a delicate state
health, but she has a 6ick husband, unal-Ae to
be moved and as, but owing to no fault of
his, he is on the point of bankruptcy, his cru
el landlord has declared that that if thej do
not pay their rent by tomorrow, he will turn
them out into the street and seize the very
bed they lie on. However, as you put the
letter in the pof,t yesterday, they must get
the fifty pour.d note to day, else they could
not—for there is no delivery of letters in
London on a Sunday, you know." J' True,
very true," replied Freeland, in a tone which
he vainly tried to render 6teady.
" Therefore," continued Lady Leslie, "If
you had told me when we met that the letter
had not gone, I should have recalled Baynes,
and sent him off by the mail to London, and
then he should have reached Somerstown
where the Bensons live, in good time ; but
now though I own it would be a comfort to
me to send him, for fear of accident, I could
not get him back soon enough ; therefore I
must let things take their chance, and as let
ters seldom miscarry, the only danger is that
the note will be taken out."
She might have talked an hour without in*
terruption ; for Freeland was too much con
scienca-stricken to reply, as he found that
he had not only told a falsehood, but that if
he had moral courage enough to tell the truth
the mischievous negligence of which he had
been guilty, could have been repaired ; but
now as Lady Leslie said, it was too late
But while Lady Leslie became talkative,
and able to perform her duties to her friends
after she had thus unburthened her mind to
Freeland, he grew every minute more absent,
and more taciturn , and though he could not
eat with appetite, he threw down rather than
drank several glasses of hock and champagne
to enable him to rally his spirits, but in vain

a sudden, however, his countenance bright
ened, and as soon as the ladies left the table
he started up, left his compliments and ex
cuses with Lady Leslie's nephew, who presid
ed at dinner, said he threw himself into
postchaise and set off for Somerstown, whicha
LadyjLeslie had named as the residence of

a lightened heart, " I shall now have the
satisfaction of doing all I can to repair my
But owing to the d lay occasioned by
want of horses, and by finding the ostlers at
the inns in bed, he did not reach London
and the place of his destination till the
wretched family had been dislodged, while
the unhappy wife was weephjg not only over
the disgrace of being so removed, and for her
own and her husband's increased illness in
consequence of it, but from the agonizing
suspicion that the mistress and friend whom
she had so long loved and relied upon, had
disregarded the tale of her sorrows, and had
tefaied to relieve her necessities.
Freelatid soon found a conductor to the mean
lodgings in which the Bensons had obtained
shelter, for they were well known and their
hard fate was generally pitied ; but it was
some time before he could speak as he stood
by their bedside. He was choked with pain
ful emotions first—with passing emotions af.
terwards ; for his conscience smote him for
the pain he had occasioned, and applauded
him for the pleasure he had come to bestow.
" 1 come," said he at length, while the
sufferers waited in almost aDgry wonder to
heer his reasons for thus intruding on them

Here his voice wholly failed him.
" Thank Heaven !" cried she, tears trick

part of all,"

was owing to my fault, that you did not re

wringing his hands; " why that would have

Freeland now turned away, unable to say
a word more; but, recovering himself, he
again drew near them, and throwing his
purse to the agitated speaker, 6aid :
" There ! get well 1 only get well! and
whatever you want shall be yours, or I shall
never loose this horrible choking again while
Freeland took a walk after this scene, and
with hasty, rapid strides—tho painful chok
ing being his companion very often during
the course of it—for he was haunted by the
image of those whom he had disgraced ; and
he could not help remembering that, howev
er bl&mable his negligence might bo, it was
nothing, either in sinfulness or mischief to
the lie he told to conceal it; add that, but
for tha* tie of fear, the effect cf his negli
gence might have been repaired in time."
But he was resolved that he would not
leave Somerstown till he had seen these poor
people settled in good lodgings. Ho there
fore hired a conveyance for them and super
intended their removal that evening to apart
ments full of every necessary comfort.
" My good friends," said he, " I cannot re
call the mortification and disgrace which you
have endured through try fault, but I trust
that you will gain in the end, by leaving a
cruel landlord, who had no pity for your un
merited poverty. Lady Leslie'* note will, I
trust, reach you to-morrow, but if not, I will
make up the loss ; therefore be easy, and

He then, but not till then, had the courage
to write to Lady Leslie and tell her the
whole truth, concluding his letter thus :
"If your interesting proteges have not
suffered in their health, I shall not regret
what has happened ; because I trust it will
be a lesson to me through life, and teach me
! never to tell even the most apparently triv
ial white lie again. llow unimportant this

ment, and hew sufficiently motived, as it was
to avoid falling in your estimation; but it
was, you 6ee, overruled for evil, and agony of
mind, disgrace, and perhaps risk of life, were
the consequences of it to innocent individu
als, not to mention my own pangs, the pangs
of an upraiding conscience. But forgive me,
my dear Lady Leslie. Now, however, I
trust that this evil, so deeply repented of,
will be blessed to us all, but it will be long
before 1 forgive myself."
Lady Leslie was delighted with this can
did letter, though grieved by its painful de
tail, while she viewed with approbation the
amends which he had made, and his modest
disregard of his own exertions.
The note arrived in safety, and Freeland
left the afflicted couple better in health and
happy mind, as hia bounty and Lady Leslie's
had left them nothing to desire in a pecunia
ry point of view.
When Lady Leslie and he met, she praised
his virtue while she blamed his fault, and
they fortified each other in the wise and
moral resolution, never to violate truth again

To the Editorof the National Fagle
In your issue of the lGtli iust., I noticed a
communication dated at "Hilton Head, S. C.,
April 1' 1863," signed ~ G. H. W.," purport
ing to have been written by a soldier, in
which I find the following sentence :

Are we, democrats, many of us your neigh*

and are entitled to, a distinct answer to this
Have you reflected upon the probable conse
quences of the utterance of such inflammatory
andvile sentiments as are contained in the let
ter of the soldier above referred to' and are to
common in the colums'of the Republican press
and in the mouths of Republican orators ?
If they were to prevail would you be entire
ly safe ? If Democats, or "Copperheads " as
we are called, in derision, by a party who
carry upon their shoulders the awlhl and ap -
palling sin of being the primary authors o'
the present civil war and the destruction of
the Union—are to be slut down and murder*
ed in cold blood, do you think that the pub
lic peace would be long maintained in the
North, and rhat you, Repudlicans. would es

Lay no such flattering unction to your

will be the signal for the slaughter of a Re

where would it end ? And what would be
the fate of the Repulicans between the fire of
the rebels on side, anh the outraged and incnr •
ed Democrats on the other 1 I will answer no
futher than to say, that the Demecracy woule
not be tho greatest suffers in the end, anb
and would not be annihilated.
As to the soldier who wrote the letter
above alluded to, if he be a soldier, and has
thus disgraced his patriotic calling, all I have
to say is, that ho has uttered sentiments
worthy only of a vile and execrable murder
er. Let him come on, and dare attempt to
execute his atrocious threats. lie would
not make many corpses befors he would be
one himse[f. Both he, and you, and all Re
publicans, should understand, that it is the
firm spirit and resolute purpose of the De
mocracy to defend themselves, their proper
ty and their rights, to any extremity which
the occasion may demand.
We do not enter into any defence of our
patriotism and loyalty of Republicans. Wo
have always been true to our country and to
the Union. We have been neithe.r the orig
inators nor fermenters of a sectional part}-,
which has resulted in the destruction of the
Union and in civil war. We have opposed
the causes and the men that have brought
these calamitous results upon the country.
And we have l allied with as much zeal as
the Republicans to the support of the exist
ing Administration in its constitutional meas
ures to repair the huge mischiefs which the
Republican party has been instrumental in
brioging about; at the same time being re
solved to hold that party responsible at the
bar of God and the People for their agency
in this terrible business of destroying our
country; and from which responsibility we
do not intend they shall escape, by any
threats or. menaces of violence to ourselves.
And finally, the Democracy are resolved to
maintain their rights at all hazards, let
them be assailed from what ever source they
may. And in view of the bloody menaces
which appear in Republican newspapers and
fall from the lips of Republican orators,
I say to my Democratic friends— Be ready
for any emergency.
I therefore submit to your cool and calm
judgment, whether it is best, or prudent, for
Republican presses, orators, or soldiers, to
indulge in any more throats to murder Dem
ocrats, or to commit outrages upon them, be
cause they claim and will enjoy the rights
and privileges of American citizens. I can
hardly think the leaders of the Republican
partyreally desired to inaugurate murder,
revolution, and anarchy at their own doors.
But I may be mistaken. Tbeir infatuation

forsoe to what folly, crime, and calamity it
may lead. The very fact that you have pub
lished, without dissent and censure, such a
letter as that which has called forth this
conrmunicaticn, is one of the gloomy prea
sages of impending evil which overshadows
our now sufficiently afflicted country.
If the Administration and the Republican
soldiers would display half as much resolu

they manifest in their endeavors to put
down the Democratic party, they might win
some victories which would be creditable to
themselves and the country. But the con-*

Tne allandlgham Habeas Corpus Case,*
The Cincinnatti Enquirer publishes an ab-'
stract of the opinion of Judge Leavitt in the
above case, m the United States Circuit dis
trict of Ohio. We have no room for it, but
cannot refrain from reproducing the closing
remark of the learned Judge, which we think
is worthy of being transmitted to posterity :
" There is one other consideration to which
T may, perhaps, properly refer, not as a reason
for refusing the writ applied for, but for the
purpose of saying that, if gianted, there is no
probability that it would be available in re
lieving Mr. \ alland'gham from his present
position. It is, at least, morally certain it
would not be obeyed. And I confess I ani
somewhat reluctant to authorize a process
knowing it would not be repeated, and that
the Court is powerless to enforce obedience.
Yet, ii satisfied there were sufficient grounds
for the allowance of the writ, the considera
tion to which T have adverted would not be
conclusive against it. 5 '

whether there was any compulsion used in

incident, which throws some light upon thie
matter, occurs in a soldier's letter to the

and when noes were call#! for about Jive only
