AXD TLLE WAY IV WHICH SHE FELL ASLEEP.
Hug me closer, closer, mother,
Put your arms around me tight,
I am cold and tired mother,
And I feel so strange to-night,
Something hurts me here, dear mother,
Like a stone upon my breast,
Oh I wonder, wonder, mother,
Why it is I cannot rest.
All the day, while you were working,
As 1 lay upon my bed,
I was trying to be patient,
And to think of what yoa said —
How the kind and blessed Jesus,
Loves his lambs to watch and keep,
And I wish'd He'd come and take me
In his arms, that I might sleep.
Just before the lamp was lighted,
Just before the children came,
While the room was very quiet,
I heard some one call my name;
All at once the window opened,
In a field wheie lambs and sheep.
£ome from out a brook were drinking,
Some were lying last asleep!
But I could not see the Saviour,
Though I s r lined my eyes to seo;
And 1 wonder if He saw me,
If He'd speak to such as me ;
In a moment I was looking
On a world so bright and fair,
Which was ftill of little children,
-And they seemed so happy there.
They were singing, oh how sweetly !
Sw i ter songs I never heard ;
They were singing sweeter, mother,
Than can sing otlr yellow bird;
And while I my breath was holding,
O.VE, so bright upon me smiled,
And I knew it mnst be Jesus,
When be said, " Come here my child
" Come up here, my little Bessie,
Come up here and live with tno,
54".'.ere the children nev r suffer,
But are happier than you see,"
Then I thought of all you'd told ine
Of that pright and happy land,
I was #)ing when you called ine,
When ycu came and kissed my hand.
.And at first I felt so sorry
You had called me ; I would go ;
Oh ! to sleep and never suffer—
Mother, don't be eryiug so.
Hug me closer, closer, mother,
Put your arms around me tight;
Oh how much I love you mother ;
But 1 feel so strange to-night!
And the mother pressed her closer
To her overburdened breast;
On the heart so near to breaking
Lay the heart so near its rest;
In the solemn hour of midnight,
In tho darkness calm and deep.
Lying on her mother's bosom,
Little Bessie fell asleep!

One might have fancied her a statue as she
stood there in the oriel window ; so pale, so
motionless, with the moon shining full upon
her, enhancing the marble whiteness of her
complexion. Edgar liaughton, as he gazed,
thought lie could understand why men,
though paying homage to Rowena Rawdon's
wondrous beauty, dared not speak to her of
love. Love could have no power over a na
ture cold, passionless such as hers. He ap

ply : " Your politeness is intrusive ; I would
rather be alone."
A long silence.
" Miss Rawdon."
She started slightly as the sound of his
voice broke the stillness.
" Such a night as this always saddens me,
bringing back vividly a melancholy event that
occurred four years ago in the field of Bala -
klava, —the death and burial of a beloved
friend, an English soldier. All day long had
the battle raged fiercely, and when the moon
rose she looked down upon a crimson-dyed
plain and into the ghastly, upturned faces of
the dying, the dead. I had been wounded,
hut slightly, and had returned, with several
otliere, so soon as I could to the carnage, to
seek for my f riend, who was missing. After
a long search we found hiiu. He had receiv
ed a mortal wound and was dying, the warm
life blood ehbiug fast away. I knelt beside
him. He knew me smiled- and, raising one
hand, pointed to a ring which glitterred on a
finger of the other. Then his lips moved. I
bent low to listen, but could only distinguish
the words, 'To my wife.'
" A few moments more and the soldier was
at rest, his warfare ended.
" With our swords we dug a grave, and

buried him by the pale moonlight, on the spot
where he fell. Poor Vernon ! His last
words were a mystery to me. I could never
understand them, for, in the eyes of the
world, he was a single man. I have thought
perhaps he may have been secretly married.
Ho had been gazing from the window
while he spoke. As he ceased he turned
towards his companion. An exclamation of
surprise escaped his lips.
ller hauds were tightly clasped, and an ex
pression of agony rested upon her face.
Apparently by a great and painful effort
sha regained her self mastery, but there was
a tremor iu her voice as she said :
"My emotion must seem strange to you,
Lut 1, too, lost a friend on that fatal day,
and your word caused to vibrate painfully a
long untouched chord in my heart."
"Would that 1 had known this!" he ex
claimed, earnestly. "Pardon an offence inno

absorbed in thought.
So she could feel, after all, and deeply too-
Ah, it was clear to him now ! She had
loved the friend to whom she relerred, hence
her strange emotion, lie thought he under
stood her. She was one of the few with
whom " Love is love for evermore."
From that night M.ss Rawdon's manner
towards Edgar Haughton changed. To him
she wa# kind, almost gentle ; but to others as
cold, as proud as ever. The change to him
was fatal. He learned to love her with all
the intensity of a strong pure nature, j'et feel
ing that he was
"Nursing a heart-flame that might be
Quenched only with his tears."
But will the storm cease at man's bidding,
or the avalanche slay its course ? As soon
will the tempest of passion he still, or love
obey the dictates of reason.
Edgar liaughton stood in the oriel window,
with the moon smiling down upon hint as
coldly, calmly as it had six weeks before,
when Kowena ltawijpn had been beside him.
On the morrow he must leave Rawdon Hall.
He had lingered there too long already, and
yet it was very hard to withdraw from the
presence of the woman he so madly worship
ped. Should he go without telling her of the
great love that surged through his whole
being, and like the ever-moving sea, would
not be still? He knew she could not love
him, but she would pit}' him j and even her
pity would be grateful to liirn.
lhe rustle of a dress stir'led hitn from his
revery. He turned and sw Miss Rawdon
just rising from a divan, near the window.
He had not heard her come in ; she must
have been there a long time : hut being in
shadow he had not discovered iter.
"Do not go, Row—; Miss Rawdon," he
pleaded, eagerly reaching forth a hand to de
tain her, as she was gliding by him.
She quietly took her place beside him in
" Do you remember the last time we Rtood
here together ?" lie asked, and without
awaiting a reply he went on. " That night I
learned that you loved once, and 1 knew that
with such as you, to love once is to love al
ways. Yet certain as I felt of this, I could
not teach my heart submission to my will ;
and day by day the feeling I entertained for
you deepened, until it has become the intens
est, strongest passion of my nature. Oln
Rowena, would to God you could love me !''
lie had spoken calmly at first, hut, at the
last the wrung heart would wail forth one
cry of anguish.
She laid her hand softly upon his arm, and
in a voice of gentle, pitying tenderness mur
" Oh. my friend, I would rather have died
than that this should have happened. I did
not dream that any one could love me. For
so long have I shut myself up in hermit-like
isolation of heart and soul, repulsing the af

fellow-beings, that I thought, no man could
ever wish to link with his a life so chill, so
joyless as mine You love me—alas ! that

honorable, noble, true, and do not fear to

MASONRY AND THE WAR.
An interesting fact is connected with the
death of Capt. Isaac Nicoll, of the 124 th,
who fe'l at Gettysburg, and whose obsobuies
were recently atten led at Washington ville.—
Before his departure for the seat of war,
Captain Nicoll was'initated into the Masonic
fraternity by the Newburgh Lodge. Alter
the news arrived of hi 6 fall at Gettyshurgh,
friends were despatched on to seek for his
body. It was unlike many thousands of
other victims on that field, readily found,
from the fact that a board was placed at the
head of the grave, bearing his name, the
number of his regiment, and a Masonic
symbol. On removing the earth above the
body, evergreens were found deposited in the
grave. Those engaged in the disinterment
knew nothing of the significance connected
with this fact, but on their return, a letter
was received from a rebel officer, we believe
a Georgian, who stated that a testament was
found upon the body of Captain Nicoll, on the
fly leaf of which was written his name, and
some direction in case of his death, and a
symbol showing his confraternity. True to
(he obligatons of the brotherhood, though
they had met 'n hostile array on the battle
field, the rebels stopped to give descent rites
o! sepulchre, and left directions with a resi
dent in the vicinity to have the testament
forwarded to the friends of the deceased.
By some accident this was delayed until after
the body was found as stated above.
It is a beautiful and touching incident of

travelers and conducters have the gayest

position. The conductor had the brakes
whistled down, and the noble critter was

side of the track several days, and had
probably deliberately come to the conclusion
that he could wait till the train passed, and
then catch up to it, jump on the hind car and
take a free ride. He tried it and won.

"THE JERSEY BLUES.".
" The Democratic Association of Camden,"
(New Jersey.) have adopted the report of a
committee appointed to prepare a declaration
of the views of that organization with regard
to national affairs. The report is wanly and
patriotic, and recommends that prompt action
be taken by the people to rebuke the unlaw
ful acts of the President and his subordinates,
and to compel them to respect the Constitu
tion and the laws—and proceeds to indicate
some of the constitutional means of defend
ing the assailed rights and liberties of the
States and citizens.
The report declares, justly, that—
"lt has beeome manifest that the men who
now control the National Administration do
not intend to bring the war to an end, until
they have subdued the people of the free
States, and perpetuated their own power ; and
there is much reason to believe that the rnili
tary force, and the financial resources of the
country, will be made use of to defeat the
popular will at the next Presidential election ;
and that by these means the tyranny which
is now oppressing the people of the free
States will be permanently established."
The association, adopting the language of
their committee, assert that " the Constitu
tion has been overthrown, and a despotism of
the most tyrannous character has been estab
lished in its place," and prove their position
by the subjoined catalogue, which, although
incomplete, abudantly sustains them:
I. The freedom of speech has been viola
ted by the arrest and imprisonment of a num
ber of persons charged with no crime, and
whose only offence was the utterance of
sentiments distasteful to the men in power
11. The freedom of the press has been
subverted by the suppression of a number of
111. The right to security from arrest
when no crime is charged , has been disre
garded in the arrest and incarceration of a
large number of persons, denounced by the
parasites of the Administration as " sympa
thizars with the rebellion."
IV. The right to security from unlawful
searches and seizures has been violated in
numerous instances, in which domicils have
been visited, and papers, etc., seized without
V. The right to a trial by jury has been
refused in the cases of citizens arrested and
imprisoned ,or banished by military orders
1 1. The right to persouut, Jreedom has
been taken fruui poor men by the Conscription
act. which compels persons, who are unable to
pay §3(X) to enter the army. This act is an
assumption of power, not given, by the Con
stiiution, and it makes a grossly unjust dis
tinction between the rich and (he poor man.
fII The freedom of every citizen has
been taken from him, by the illegal and un
necessary suspension of the right to demand
the writ of habeas corpus.
I 111. The right oj property has been ab
rogated by the Emancipation Proclamation
and the Confiscation act.
IX. Ihe inviolability of contracts has been
destoj'ed by the act which makes deprecated

been violatsd on ropeated occations by the in

the people to elect their legislators and rulers
has been taken from thtin, and the will of
majorities disregarded, as is abundantly mani
fested in the manner in which elections have
reeently been carried by the grossest corrup
tion in Northern States, and by military or
ders in the border States of the South.
The Association, in the spirit of
reprobate the conduct of President Liucoln
and the members of his Cabinet, in pamper
ing parasites and menials, and encouraging
them to denounce all who oppose the illegal
acts of the Administration as " traitors,' 'reb
el sympathizers,' Ac., as grossly insulting to
the people, and deserving the indignant re
buke of every honest mm. In refereeco to
the corruption and extravagance of the Ad
ministration, the Camden Association say
" The expenditures of the General Govern
ment, since the commencement of the present
Administration, have been wasteful and ex
travagant in an unexemplified degree; and it,
lias been acknowledged by men of its own ■
party that the National Treasury has been
p andered in the most shameful manner. It
cannot be expected that the party in power
will willingly end the war while myriads of
its creatures are fattening upon the disgrace
ful waste of the people's money.,'
The conclusion of the declaration is that

"It therefore becomes us aa men 'wbe
