" The raclancholly days have come,
The saddes of the year,"
When careful housewives ri -e, en masse,
To put things out of gear.
Oh women, found to charm, when o'er
You set your wits to work,
Why rear a nest, and call it home,
Then spoil it with a jerk 7
And why your slender hands contrive
To r.i ise a yearly row,
And tumble furniture pell-mell,
No matter where, or how ;
Dragging old carpets from the floor,
And curtains from the wall, —
Starting agog the cat, and dog,
And baby-hood a-bawl 7
" When lovely woman stoops"—to scrub,
Minus her crinoline,
Iler plutnp arm to the shoulder bare,
And resolute her mein—
Don't mind your pretty sentiment—
Your nonsense, and all that,
But quietly, Oh wretchod man,
See where you left your hat 1
Though beautiful her white arm be,
And witching her bright eye,
Some other time will do as well,
For you to sit, and sigh,
And conjure idle wishes up
As man has. since the fall
If you have business, go your way,
If not , decamp—that's all !
Alas, for husbandly repose,
And calm domestic bliss !
The meek-eyed man, who " rules in fear,"
May bear all things, but this
T<> want his slippers, double-quick,
An 1 not know where to look—
To miss his coat, that hung before,
On one consistent hook ;
To want a letter that he laid
Upon a corner shelf—
Tn fact, to neeu a guide, to tell
If he Is quite himself :
To wander vaguely through the land,
Tn search of this or that,
Nor find a single thing in place,
From pet-cane, to cravat 5
To come to dinner, hut to munch,
A comfortless, " cold bite,"
Nor all the time all >wed to sneer.
But killingly polite.
Poor martyr, in a "omniin cause-

And blossoming delights.

THK CONSTITUTION AS IT IS
THE UNION AS IT WAS.
BY G P. RCRGISON
110 ! Democrats of every State,
Who love 3 - our country's laws,
Prepare ye for the conflict now
For near the battle draws ;
And let your banner blazon forth,
The watchword of our cause
'•The CONSTITUTION as it is,
The UNION as it was !"
The warning voice of Washington,
Still echoes through the land—
The Constitution must be saved,
Though danger be at hand,
All violations of the la*
Should instantly be checked
Without the chart of liherty,
0r freedom would be wrecked
Permit no " State necessity"
To mar its smallest part,
For'tis a tyrant's listed steel
To pierce the nation's heart.
The Sago of Monticello spoke,
And warned us of the worst j
He said by seetional d isputes
Our Country would be cursed,
His prophet eye beheld the North,
Against the South arrayed.
Gainst geographic party lines
The dying statesman prayed,
The right of each and every state
Its own affairs to rule,
The doctrine was of Jefferson,
And all since of his school.
The Hero of the Hermit age
This sentiment expressed—
The Union it must be preserved
All wrongs by law repressed ;
The rights reserved by every State
Still sacred must remain ;
The freedom of the press and speech,
No power should e're restrain
Whoever dares to break the law,
To trial straightway bring,
And if hig \ treason be his c.'ime !
Like llaman let him swing !
The Constitution as it is
We want no higher law :
Our fathers, when they inado it,
The coming dangers saw,
They formed it broad enough for all I
Ppcjared the work was good—
The gis of our liberties—
A bond of brotherhood,
It cowered North and South Uke,
United East and West,
And made our oountrv prosperous,
Our people free and blest

BY ELIZA S. PRATT.
" Is all said ?" inquired Eugene Reyburn.
'• Al!!" replied Margaret.
" Then adieu forever, and may heaven for
give you, as I do !"' and the young man who
uttered these words, drew his hat over his
eyes, and, with a flushing brow ar.d burning
cheek, rushed from the apartment. But his
foot was yet upon the threshold and his
hand upon the door lock, when a low, scarce
ly heard voice fell upon his ear, yet so deep
and passionate, that he stopped as if spell
bound to the place.
" Stay. Eugene, there is yet one condition
on which my hand is yours ; one which I
have not, and durst not name to you yet—
perhaps you can bear it now and the blue
eyes of the young girl were raised to his
with an expression not easy to define, com
bining, as it did, both subtlety and frank
ness, passion and perhaps indifference
The youth re-clo>ed the door, and drew
near the beautiful speaker—beautiful she
wa, if almost perfect features and a fault
less form combined, can constitute beauty—
and listened with parted lips, and dilating
eyes, as she went on.
" Y'ou do not know, perhaps, what it is to
feel as I do, a thirst for POWER —a desire
combined with the very essence of your be
ing and growing up from day to-day, till it
has become a mighty and unconquerable pas
sion, a terrible THIRST, to which everything
els •is as nothing ; you do not know, per
haps, what it is to look upon your felhnv
men—those who now in their might look
down upon you—and to feel that you must
and will have dominion over them, to know
that the day shall come, in which those who
now tower above you, shall cringe and fawn
at your feet—fawn for the very favors that
now they DARE deny you ; you do not
know this perhaps," (and the color sank
gradually from the check of the girl, leaving
it of an ashv paleness as she went on,) " but
I have known it, and felt it from my earli
est childhood. Ever since I have known
what it was to think or feel, I have thirsted
fur dominion over others, and have felt that
the time would come, I knew not when or
how, that this passion of my life wou'd find
•tn reality. These hopes grew to palpability;
and now I ask, must this passion I have so
nurtured from my infancy, be crushed forev
The voulh recoiled frotn her touch, as in
the impulse of the moment she approached
him, and laid her slender Gngcr upon his arm
and his eyes, for per.iaps .he fust time in
lis life, dropped beneath the almost burning
taze of her whom he had so loved while a
light shiver crept over his frame as he re

"No ! you cannot.; but know you rot
tlat woman seldom arrives at this power,
unless through another ?"
" Ha' he exclaimed, drawing a pace back
wards, and shading his brow with his hand '
"he wliotp yog marry then, must posses
this power—this talisman of it

" You have rightly divined—,he mu st have
it, in some way or other or he can never ful

*' And you have recalled me, Margaret, to
tell ma this, to put a new unconquerable
barrier between us. Why did you not suf

without this new burden upon my heart V t
" I recalled you, Eugene, to give you HOPE
the only hope I could give you- -and to
show you the way to the realization of all
your dreams. Get possession of this talis
man—be above others, and I am yours, heart
and hand, forever!" and as she ceased speak
ing. she threw herself into a fateuit, and
calmly watched the effect of this dangerous
There was a long pause, in which a strange
variety of emotions were fluttering in the
breast of Eugene Reyburn. If ever man
loved, purely and deeply, he had loved the
girl before him ; but until row he had not
penetrated her real character, nor would he
have believed that an exterior so gentle
could conceal poison of so deep a nature.—
But the charm had not been broken, nor les
sened perhaps though it was changed in
character—though he saw something to
dread, he still worshipped.
This power is rarely given to men," said
hg at length, slowly raising his eyes, with a
deep sigh—"the mighty of the earth are but
few and far between. Genius may claim do
minions,and talent and learning, honor;but I
Margaret, have neither of these, you well
know, and may never hope for them either.
Why tantalize me thus?"
'• I would not tantalize you, Eugene, but
I would give you hope. Is there then no
talisman to which men bow, even mightier
than genius ?"
" Gold !" exclaimed he, in a deep, passion
ate tone. " Gold !"
For an instant Eugene held bis breath, and
the very blood seemed curdled about his
heart, but the next he drew his cloak around
hitn and rushed fro© the house.
YVith a feverish impatience, the youth hur
ried homeward over the pavement. Strange
thoughts were in his heart ; new hopes and
new desires were holding their unbidden
councils there—yet he crushed them within
him, >r strove to do so ; but 1 lie word "gold"
seemed Drove ringing in his ears. lie was
what the world would term a " moral and
upright youih," conscientious in all his deal
ings with others, and until this moment, he
put no value upon money, farther than it was
necessary to the comforts, or perhaps the
luxuries of life. But now it su idenly pos
sessed a new value in hi* eyes. The logic
and pa-ston of Ma-garet were like electricity

step a considerable distance oyer the pave,

he glanced around him hurriedly ; then draw
ing drawing close to his companion he whis
pered in his ear.
For an instant Eugene hesitated, and the
light that flashed from a neighboring window
showed his countenance of ghastly paleness.
An hour before he would have utterly refused
the temptation but now, he pondered ; and
while a course ot rapid and undefined thoughts
was going on within his heart, his friend drew
him aside, and they entered one of those dark
dens of iniquity, which are the bane of popu
larities, and where wealth and beggary are
made the playthings of an hour, and almost
life and death the sport of the gaming table.
Fortune sometimes strangely favors the
guilty as well as the brave, while the honest
and upright are apparently going down hill
It was almost Eugene's first decided com.
promise with conscience and it succeeded.—
For many days, every successive night.found
him at the gaming table and when, at the
close of a fortnight, he found himself the
master of a considerable sum of money, by
an elfort certainly uncommon, lie slopped in
this career of sinful uncertainty, and, with li s
small capital, immediately commenced busi

Success followed success—his business and
capital increased. Months and years went by
and wealth flowed into his cutlers. He drew
the girl whom he had so won—won at the
gaining table—to his own hearth stone, and
she deemed herself happy for they were rich>
and who can deny tha' they were honored ?
He had gained that power over others for
which she had thirsted—and men looked up
to him, and bowed low as they passed him
on their way. and flesh and blood oringed at
his feet for even a single touch of his finger !
One cold, windy night December of 18—
just as the clock tolled one, the shrill and
startling ory of fire, was heard echoing through
the deserted streets of New York. Eugene
slept soundly, with his wife and child by his
side. As the c ry struck his ear he started,
turned, and murmuring " it is nothing," drew
the clbthes moreolosely.about him, and slept .
Slill the cry arose louder and louder on the
air, of " fire !" at momentary intervals ; and
men and hoys were hurryiug through the
streets, with rapid and eager steps, towards
the princely house of the sleeper. Still he
awoke not from his almost unearthly sleep,
till the crash of the door broken in from with
out startled him to his senses, and he leaped
from his bed just as the flames were polling
and flashing through the room, and upon the
instant the bed curtains caught, and his wife
and cb Id were enveloped in the flames !
It was the work of an instant to rescue
them and hurry down the already burning
stairs. But the work of destruction was done
Many a block, and two or three whole square 8
were consumed before the flames could be
subdued, and with the dwelling house of Eu
yene his large mercantile establishment was
burnedjto ashes. That very day the insu
rance company failed.
Nor was this all. The morrow brought
tidings of the wreck of a ship in which he
had invested a large part of hia fortune, and
Eugene Reyburn was ruined !
Could we trace the destinies of mankind,
and penetrate into the secrets of their lives
we should see oftener than we now suppose )
that the work of retribution is accomplished
here, to a considerable extent, at least. The
goods of this world, unlawfully gained, are
not unfrequently wrenched violently from the
j grasp, or if retained, become, in some way,
I the curse of life.
His wife lay on her death bed. The flames
which had entered her vitals were rapidly
finishing the work of destruction, and who
can say that the had not wrought her own
" Eugene," said she, in a low voice laying
her thin hard in his "it is all over now. I
have been thinking of the past—that night on
which I breathed into your ear that thirst
for power, that deadly ambition which tortor
Ed my soul, and I have traced it all along
from that hour to this, and (her eyes were
lifted to his with an almost prophetic ex
ptession, while a slight shiver crept over her
frame,)l believe that this moment is the seal
of that. Not that one tuay not desire power

But teats choked her utterance, and at this
last charge, the husband groaned aloud. She
knew not that her parting breath would leave
him forever alone in the world ; that child al
ready lay cold in death, a victim to the terri
ble flames that sealed the death doom of the
The last faint beams of the setting sun fell
upon the death sealed face of the young wife ;
and Eugene turned from the room a broken

WHY I AM A DEMOCRAT.
[From the Age.]
Ist. Because I believe in the Constitution,
as it was formed by the Fathers of the Re
public, and under whioh our country has
prospered,as no othernation hasprospered, for
eighty years, or since the end of the war of
the Revolution, and would have prospered
more and been united still, had not aboli
tionism, with its frantic teachings, obtained
possession of the Government.
2d. Because I am opposed to any infringe
ment on the right of habeas corpus, the
great security for our personal liberty.
3d. Because I believe in the right o f free
speech, without which we are worse than
4th. Because I am apposed to a consolida
ted Government which would reduce the peo
ple to the condition of serfs or subjects.
sth. Bt-cause l am opposed to the rule of
abolitionists, with the enmity to our glori
ous old Constitution , calling it " a covenant
with Death and a league with Hell."
6th. Because I am opposed to frauds in
government contra ts , which have been so
many and so great, during the war, as to be
beyond calculation, and seem as yet to have
7th. Because I am in favor of freedom of
ihe press and the fair criticism of those who
conduct the affairs of our Government.
Bth. Because I ana opposed to all interfer
ence, trom whatever source, with the right

in all the Siates, as guaranteed by the Con
stitution, and as interpreted by the Supreme
10th Because lam opposed to Em&ncipa
tion Proclamations making free the slaves of
the South, and inciting to insurrection, which
while it has united the South as one man
against the North, has divided the North
11th. Because I believe that the salvation
of our Government can be attained only by
the elevation of the Democratic party to the
control of the Government, which, while it
had the power, maintained the dignity of
the nation at home and abroad.
Philadelphia, Ma}*, 13, 1803.

ing : "Young girl wanted by " (the
blank being tilled by the advertiser's name.)
Next morning he found at his door a large

gender, around whose neck was a ribbon
with the following letter of introduction :
"Mr. : You advertise in this
week's paper that you wanted a young girl.

THE POWER OF READING*
Benjamin Franklin tells us, in one of his -'
letters, that when he was a boy,fa little book
fell into his hands, entitled Essay to do Good
by Cotton Mather. It was tattered and torn 1
and several leaves were missing. " But the
remainder," te says, "gave me such a turn
of thinking as to have an influence on ray
conduct through life : for I have always set
a greater value on the character of a doer of ■
goad than on any other kind of reputation,,
and if I have been a useful citizen, the pub
lic owes all the advantages of it to the little ■
Jeremy Bentham mentions that the cur
rent of his thoughts and studies was direct
ed for life by a single phraze that caught hia
eye at the end of a pamphlet. u The great
est good of the greatest number." There
are single sentences in the New Testament
that have awakened to spiritual life hundreds
of millions of dormant souls. In things of
less moment reading has a wondrous power.
Robinson Crusoe has sent to sea more
sailors than the press gang. The story about
little George Washington telling the truth
about the hatchet and the pi urn tree has
made many a truth teller. We owe all the
Waverly novels to Scott's early reading of
the old traditions and legends; and the
whole body of pastoral fiction came from
Addison's Sketches of Sir Roger De-Covcrlv
in the Spectator. But illustrations are num
berless. Tremble ye who write, and ye who
publish writing. A paragraph may quench
or kindle the celestial spark in a human soul
—in myriads of 6ouls.
A BUTTERNUT PlN— The Vincennes (Ind)
Sun , says: "A little girl not quite three years
old, was observed by a lynx-eyed, lop-eared,
Abolition spy, out upon one of the streets of
Indianapolis, a few days since, who had her
dress fastened up at the neck with a small
butternut pin. This Abolitionist—thinking
this a splendid opportunity to render hia
country a great service, without endangering
his own precious life informed some Federal
soldiers that there was a tqptor and ondeav-.
ored to have them take the pin away from tho
child. The soldiers were too gentlemanly to
carry out the patriotic snggestion and refused
to do it. There are some abolitionists in
this city who are just about as mean as this
man was. They would choke an infant to
get away from it a copper cent, or a butter
nut plaything it might have in its possession.'
P#WER OF EXAMPLE —ExampIe is a living
lesson. The life speaks. Every action has
a tongue. "Words are but articulate breath.
Deeds are the fac similes of the soul; thoy
proclaim what is within. Tho child notices
the life. It should be in harmony, with
goodness. Keen is tho vision of youth ; ev
ery mark is transparent. If a word is thrown
into one balance, a deed is thrown into the
other. Nothing is more important than that
parents should bo consistent. A sincere
word is never lost \ but advice, counter to
