&met:May's child is lost to-night !
I hear the bellman ring;
And the earth is frozen hard and white,
And the wind has a nipping sting.
I know my babes are long a-bed,
A tender, motherly hand
Laying a blessing on every head
After their evening prayers were said—
•'God keep the slumbering band !
Yet somebody's child is lost, I say,
This night so bitterly cold.
Borne innocent lamb has gone astray
Unwittingly from its fold.
"Bellfriati I ho, bellman, whose child is lost?"
And I grasp my staff and cloak ;
the ringer over the Word had cross'd
Before I tardily spoke.
The Neighbors soon gather, and far and near
We pry into ditch and fen,
Bark ! an answering shout I hear—
'The rover in found again.
Ali I mother, fond mother, your heart is light
With Joe to your bosom bound;
But many a child is lost to-night
Who'll never, no, never be found.
Ay!, somebody's child is lost to-night,
While the wind is high and hoarse,
And the scudding ship, like a bird a-fright
Flies shivering on its course.
She suddenly drops in the yawning deep
Asl never to return ;
She leaps atop the watery steep,
A-creaking from stem to stern.
Bold well, good bark ! for a score of lives
Ostnprise thy costliest freight;
Else loving mothers, and maids, and wives
Will ever be desolate.
And well she holds, with a single sail
Outspread to guide her way,
While all the furies of the gale
Around her bulwarks play.
The sailor-boy,. with a fearful heart,
Sighs for.lies distant home,
And the hasty tears from his eyelids start,
And drop in the briny foam.
in the months agone a father sigh'i,
And a mother trembled with fears;
But that father's law had he defied,
And he scorn'd that mother's tears.
The pitiless blast now mocks his grief
And a huge and hungry wave
Dears him away beyond relief,
To the depths of ocean grave.,-
The Ifrand is blazing upon the besirth,
The work of the day 13 done,
And the father's heart runs over the earth
In search of the wandering son.
"Oh! where is our poor boy to-night--
This High t so bleak and wild r"
The mother shuts her eyes to the light,
And inly prays for her child.
The busy needles all cease their flight,
While their heart's say, " Where islie ?"
They dream not he has sunken from sight,
Down, down, down in the, sea.
The mother may pray, and she may weep
Till she weep her life away,
But never more will she find the sheep
That wilfully went astray. • -
Somebody's child is lost to-night!
Oh sorrow is on the day
When a virgin's fame is marr'd with blight
That cannot be cleansed away.
An humbled family sits in tho.gloom,
Bemoaning their hopelesS shame—
Would that she were safe in the tomb
With honor upon her name!
While deck'd in garments of satin and sin,
The fallen daughter, I wren,
is scorch'd with a fever of heart within,
Though reigning as wanton-queen.
0 merciful Father! is this the child
Thy hand created so fair,
With eyes where simple innocence smiPd,
' And coy and maidenly air?
Is this the promising morning -flower,
The brightest its rivals among?
Is this the bird that sung in the bower
With sweetest and merriest tongue?
Alt me ! this child is more than lost ;
Far her low-fallen form, •
On sin's voluptuous surges test,
Will prrish in passion's storm.
And - the mother may 'sigh and she may weep
Till she weep her lif e away,
But never more will she Lind the sheep
That wickedly went asttay.
Somebody's child is lost to-night—
A widow's only son, •
With brow as light and eye as bright
As you ever looked upon.
"And he will be my staff and stay"—
Her words were inly spoken—
" When I am old, and my hair is gray,
And my natural strength is broken.) ,
Her motherly soul with pride o'erran
As the lad grew up to the estate of man,
And she said, in her joy,
That nobody's boy
Could match her paragon by a span.
Time stole along, and her locks were gray,
But her heart had lost its pride,
For the man had wander'd so far astray,
'Twere better the boy had died.
A loathsome. vile, and gibbering thing,
Stung by the fatal shill-worm's acing,
Despised of man, ern teaming God,
And gnasinq at the avenging rod
AM passions scourged him sore,
Till, fainting, be could feel no mote.—
Ah I somebody's child was lost in him
When he took up
The wassail cup,
And aipp'd perdition from its
Then his manhood died,
And the beautiful boy
Of his mother's pride
Spill'd in the sand the cup of her joy.
Instead, she quatf'd.
A wormwood draught,
A sorely-smitten woman;
' Yet loved she still,
Through every ill,
The child so scarcely human.
In weariness and watching! often,
Unmurmuringly her grief she bore,
unwrapt in shroud , of coffin,
Her son lay dead before her door.
Her sorrows bad come so thick and fast
They cluster'd round her everywhere,
Till, reason utterly overcast,
The darkness hid away her care.
Wet oiltirnes would she ask for one
Long gone from tome, her beautiful son ;
And while he chided Ida long delay,
She would sigh t and whimper, and prey.

sign my seat in the Senate to you from
whom I had received it,- and then to
notify the President of the acceptance
of the commission of Brigadier General,
which was not to issue until the receipt
of such notification.
I made every effort which self-respect
would permit to effect this arrangement
with Major Gen. Hunter. I failed.—
The correspondence, when published,
will prove indeed that I could not have
served under him in any capacity, how
ever subordinate, without degradation.
I had no military ambition beyond
that connected with this expedition. I
desired to surround the institution of
slavery with free territory, and thus
girdle the cause of the rebellion itself.
Without fault on my part, as I believe,
I have been thwarted in this, the cherish
ed hope of my life.
The sad yet simple duty only remains
to announce to you, and through you to
the people of Kansas, my purpose to re
turn to my seat in the United States
Senate, a purpose declared to the Presi
dent through a telegram of which the
following is a copy :

General Hunter have failed. lam com

thirty-seven and a half cents each."—
Here the conversation ended, and the
Yankee took up his quarters for two
weeks. During this time he lodged and
breakfasted at the hotel, but did not
take either diner or supper, saying his
business detained him in another por
tion of the town. At the expiration of
two weeks, he again walked up to the
bar, and said : "S'pose we settle that ac
count—Pm goin' in a few minutes."—
The landlord handed him his bill.—
"Two weeks board at five dollars—ten
dollars." "Here, stranger," said the
Yankee, "this is wrong—you've made a

LONGEVITY Or THE MAETAI
A letter from Rome, alluding to a late
rumor of the Pope's death, says the
Mastai family, to which. the Pope be•
longs, is remarkable for its-longevity.--
he has two brothers and a sister older
than-himself—Count Gabriel, aged 82 ;
Count Gaetano, 78 and Countess Isabel
la, 75. Count Jerome, father of his
Holineis, died at the age of 84, and the
Countess Catherine, his.mother, died at
the age of 82,*hile his grandfather, the
Count Hercules, lived to the age of 96.
It may consequently be averred with
truth that they are a loog.lived family.
