Near me at morn;
Nor in the starry eve, nor midnight deep,
Leave me forlorn.
From all dark spirits of unholy power
Guard my weak heart;
Circle round one in each"perilaus hour,
And take my part,
Keep me secure •' ,
Teach me to - hope, end through the bitterest tears
• Still to endure.
If lonely in the road so fair and wide,
My feet should stray
Then through a rougher, safer pathway guide
Me day by day.

With holy fear.
Then leave me not alone in *hie bleak world.

And at the end, with your bright wings unluiled,
Oh, take me home. 1-

The following pathetic and beautiful sketch

"The pain-wearied nrother
~of six small
children—the oldest ten, the
ly a year old—lay on the pallet where she
had counted the long, long hours in suffer
ing, ever since the birth of her last pet Bar
ney. The cabin was surrounded by a lquely
moor, and there were no neighbors; the hard
working father, forced to toil that he might
eat, had shared the night watches, necessary
only 'within the last two weeks,. with his lit
tirodt.ughter, who drugged incessantly each
day. feeding and tending the other children,
still too young to share her labors. On this
particular night, a fearful storm moaned atid
wept around the hut, and the rain lashed the
thatched roof and one window with terrific
violence. It was Peggy's turn to wateh,
and she sat by the remains of the peat fire
frightened and very sorrowful, when her
mother, with the sweet, low voice she loved
so. well, called her to her side.
"I amgoing at last, darlint," said she, as
she kissed the poor little tear -drenched face
bent down to her's, "and ye must mind the
father and be good to the children"—for an
instant the deep gray eyes were United flea

never see him here again; I must meet him
-in Heaven. - Nee that he gets there, Peggy;
he's your boy now." "
"Oh, mother ! let me call father and the
rest, that ye may kiss 'em once again.".
"Whist, ;mumble, i' am tired; sure I could
not bide their tears, they'd scald my heart
and hinder inc from heaven. Time enough
for them to raise the keen when I 'am gone;
let me die in peace; and the slender fingers,
laid in tender blessing on the young head,
slipt slowly down, then felt for the little

In the lonely quit chamber
There s an empty cradle bed,
With a print upon the pillow
. Of a baby's shining head.
'Tie a fair and dainty cradle,
• Downy eoft with pillows white,
Bet within the blanket folded
Lies no little form tonight.
Once the mother sit beside it,
When the day was growing dim,
And her pleasant voice was singing
Soft and slow a cradle hymn.
Now there's no more need of singing
When the evening shadows sleep,
For the cradle bed is empty,
And the a baby gone to sleep.
Little head that used to nPatle
In the pillowa•white and soft—
Little'hands whose restless fingers
Folded there in dreams so oft—
Lips we pressed with fondest kisses—
Eyes we praised for purest rap'—
Underneath the church yap' daisies
They have hid you al ay.
Ah, the empty, useless cradle I
We will put it out of sight,
Lest our hearts should grieve leo sorely
For the little one to-night.
We will think how safe forever
In the better field above
That young lamb for which we sorrow
itesteth now in Jesus' love,
The Dying Mother.
"When I was a little boy," says Dr. Frank
he, "I was accosted by a smiling man with
axe on his shoulder,. 'My pretty boy,' , said
he, 'has your father got a grmdstone?"tes,
sir,' said I 'You are a fine little fellow,'
said he; 'will you let me grind my axe on it?'
Pleased with the compliment of the 'fine lit
tle fellow,' .'0 yes, '
' I answered; 'it's down
in the shop'. • And will you, my fine little
fellow' said he patting me on the back, 'get
me a little hot water ?' Could I raise ? I
ran and soon brought .a kettle full. Haw
old are you, and what is your name ?' con
tinued he, withou,waiting for a reply; 'I
am sure you are the finest little fellow that
ever I saw; will you just turn 'a few minutes
for me ?' Tickled at the flattery like a fool
I went to work, and bitterly did I rue the
day. It was a new axe and I toiled and
tuged till I was almost tired to death. The
school-bell rang and I could not get away—
my hands were blistered, the axe was shar
pened, and the man turned to me with,
'Now, you little rascal i you've played truant;
scud for school, or you will rue it.' Alas I
thought I, it's hard enough to turn the grind
stone this cold day, but to be called a little
rascal was too much. It sank.deep in my
h ria - e - a - titC - ri.gaint
customers; begging them to take a little bran
dy—that man has an axe to grind. When
I see a man flattering the people, making
great professions of attachments to liberty,
who is in private like a tyrant, methinks,
look out, good people, that fellow would set
you a turning the grindstone. When I see
a man hoisted into office by a party spirit,
without a single qualification to render him
respectable or useful, alas, deluded people,
you are doomed for a season to turn the
grindstone for a booby."
A correspondent of tho Cincinnati Gazette
relates thejollowing bold exploit in front of
The arniy was halted to rest and to give
time for a reconnoisanco in order to learn
the enemy's position and strength: This
was a very difficult and dangerous matter,
owing to the nature of the ground. Several
unsuccessful attempts had been made to pro- .
cure the much desired information, when
James C. Matteson, First Lieut. Co. C, 27th
Indiana volunteers, rode boldly up to withiri
sixty yards of the enemy, halted, surveyed
his entrenchments, accurately computed his
strength in numbers and position, ascertain
ed the number of his siege guns And field ar
tillery, then wheeled his horse and rode off,
waving his cap triumphantly through a tre
mendous shower of balls, bidding defiance to
the-h und reds-of-misailes_ofideath__whistling_
all around,.and rode up to the General calm
ly and pleasantly smiling, to give his infor
mation. I asked him how he escaped.—
‘!Through the mercy of God' and very bad
rebel markmanship," he replied laughingly..
- This must certainly be very true, for about
three hundred guns were fired at him at the
short distance of sixty yards, and not one
took effect. He said the balls sounded like
a large swarm of bees around him.
It is unniversally admitted by all who wit
nessed this exploit, and are acquainted with
the circumstances, that it competes with any
even in the annals of history.
AUCtION OF 14ADIEB.—An auction of un
married ladies used to take place annually at
Babylon. "In-every district says the histo
rian, "they assembled on a certain day iu
every year all the virgins of the marriage
able age;" the most beautiful were put up,
and those who bid the most money gained
possesion of her. The second in appearance
followed, and the bidders gratified themselves
with handsome—waves,- according to the_
length of chir purses.. But alasr it seems
there were some ladies for whom no money
was likely to be offered, vet these were the
Babylonians. "When all these beautiful vir,
gins" says the historian. "were sold, the cri
er ordered the most deformed to stand up,
and after he had open.y demanded Who
would marry her with a small mum, she was
at length adjudged to • the man who would
4a:satisfied with the. lea.st.". In this manner
the money arising from the handsome served
us a portion — of those who were either of dis.
agreeable looks, or who had other imperree
tions. This custom prevailed about one hun
dred years before Christ.

years of age, and some of his neighbors or
customers had been quizzing and vexing him
by remarks upon. the' difference which he
had suddenly discovered, doubtless without
any idea that he would take the matter so
much to heart. Jacoby's wife states that on
Friday night he knelt down in the kitchen
and prayed, and retired to bed as usual. In
the night she observed that he was reeping.
About 3 o'clock on Saturday morning, he
rose, dressed himself partially, and wont out.
Not returning, search was made in the
morning, when his body was found in a pond
or water about a quarter of a mile from the
house, the depth of which in no place ex

with his arms spread out, and the water
where he was found was so shallow that the

'New Way. .to:: Detect tt,Thiet
The following - tnotle,.of tleteetang a , thief
is related by Rev. ,Dr. Thompson, now for
thirty years a missionary in S rill, awl 'Pales
tine, in his hiterestifig ,Wor called 'The
Land and 'the Book.' it is well Oivti that
in the East the belief in 'demonology, witch
craft, necromancy, charms, divination, incan
tations fortune-telling, and all other 'ings
Said 'ations' On which such powers are sup
posed to depend is much more• general than
here, and that there are professional fortune
tellers and necromancers.
Dr. Thompson relates of one of these fel
lows, since reformed, that once, when he was
travelling through the Hilloh, _#o2/ fotind
poor woman. at a mill, on the - uppef Jordan;
beating herself in despair because some one
had stolen her meal bag. There was an
Arab tent not far off, and as Arabs are by
profession-thieves, he suspected that one of
them had stolen the missing bag. Carling
them all before him, he told them his suspi
cion,. and declared that he had an infallible
test by which to detect the thief, and to it
theyimust submit, or he would lodge a com
plaint against them with the Governor.
They all stoutly denied the charge, and offer
ed to submit to the test. •
He then cut pieces of straw equal in num
ber to that of the Arabs, and of eltaetly the
Mme length, and kept the measure himself,
giving a piece to each of them. 'Now' said
he, in his most imposing manner, 'keep the
bits till the morning, each one by himself;
then bring them to me, and I will nseas
them; if any of you have the, bag h': .tick
will have. grown longer by so much.'
01 course each hid his straw in his bosom,
and in the morning one was found as much
too short as he - said it would grow in posses
sion of the thief. The credulous rascal, not
doubting that it would actually grow, had
cut off just the length which he supposed
had been added during the night. When
thus detected, he confessed the theft, and
restored the poor woman her bag.
The American Standard, printed at Union-
I I s • r- I r •,• t • . s
John Sickles, a resident of Wharton town
ship, in order to prevent her husband from
enlisting, cut off the two front fingerk of his
right hand with an axe! It is said he had
told her he was determined to enlist, which
so excited her that she resolved at once to
render him incompetent to bear arms, and
during the night, while he *as in a deep
sleep, she drew his hand to the bed rail and
dropped the axe carefully on his fingers, ta,
king them clean off at the first joint: Such
depravity is almost without a parellel, and
its truth might be reasonably doubted had
we not seen the identical fingers, which were
exhibited in this place on Saturday evening
by a gentleman who procured them at the
residence_of the unfortunate victim. •
TRYING TO AVOID THE DRAFT.—Oar ex
changes relate many amusing instances oc
curring at the "exemption" offices. One of
the best is thus related by a New Jersey
"The next aspirant was Yaweob Schack

"Local or chronic ?" asked the clerk. "Lo

... sound remarks by Mayor
Henry, of Philactelphia, should command the
attention of all loyal men :
"There can be no partizan triumph over
the National Administration that will not be
gladly bailed by foreign Governments as a
popular denunciation of our war for the U
oion; there can be no factioions oppositioa
to the policy of that Administration that will
not inspire fresh vigor throughout the ranks
