A printer weary and wan,
His face all mortally pale,
As he wearily plodded his homeward way
Before the breaking of early day,
Break out in a bitter wail.
His voice was husky and low,
As though his lungs were gone ;
And he cough'd, and gash'd, and cough'd aga in,
And he preas'd his hand on his heart in pain,
While thus his plaint ran on :
"A world of toil is this!
It bath no joy for roe t
, Tis labor by day, and labor by night,
By the light of the sun, and by candle-light--
Labor continually.
Some men have a day of rest,
But Sabbath for me is not;
It is toil all the week, apd toil on the day
That God has given to rest and to pray—
! this is the printer's lot!
"When I was a boy," he said,
"I played en the hills of green ;
I swam in the stieam—l fish'd in the brook—
And blessed was I to sit and to look
Unfetter'd on nature's scene.
"For twenty sad years or more,
My life has worn away
Th musky looms of poisonous sir,
When I've yeatn'd for a sight of open day.
And the light of the open day.
" *. An innocent prisoner doom'd,
My heart is heavy within;
Oh why should a man untainted by guilt,
Who the blood of a creature never hath spilt,
But pent, like a felon, for sin'?"
The printer then cough'd and sigh'd—
The stars were growing dim,
And he upwards glanced at the morning sky,
And he inly thought it were good to die,
And death would be rest to him.
His heart 178.9 tired of beating;
He pnly'd to the Lord above
To pity a man whose heart had been riven
13y toil, for other men's interest given,—
And he wept for His mercy and love.
He hied to his humble home.
His infant awoke to cry,
“Oh father ! oh mother! I'm hungry for bread!'
And the printer hosed down, with en aching
On his Mary's lap to die.
Oh ye who have never known
The richness that's in a crust
When nothing is found on the desolate shelf,
And the sufferer's pocked is empty of pelf,—
Receive my story on trust.
Say not in your careless scorn,
W hat boots the tale to you
The rhymer who traces these roughly-writ
Hath known of such sufferers in other day-
And the main of his rhyme Is true
Remember this holy truth,—
The man who aloof hath stood
When a heart-broken brother for succour did
And he stretch'd not a finger to bless and to
Is verily guilty of blood
Bachelor's Hall, what a quire looking place
it is!
Kape me from sich all the days of my life!
Sure but I think what a burnin' disgrace it is,
Niver at all to be gettin' a wife.
See the ould Bachelor, gloomy and sad enough,
Placing his tay kittle over the fire— ,
Soon tips it over; st. Patrick ! he's mad
. enough,
(If he were present) to fight with the Squire.
Now, like a hog in the mortar bed wallowing,
Awkward enough, see him knading his

How he would favor his palate you know.

Charlotte Corday.
During the French Revolution 0f1798,
there lived in the city Caen, France, a
young lady, Charlotte Corday d'Armont,
a grand daughter of the celebrated Cor
neille. Though born of gentle bood,
she had been nutured in the school of ad
versity, her father being too aristocratic
to work, too poor to live comfortably
without work. In early life she was
placed in a monastery in Caen, where
her whole future destiny was influenced
by the peculiar discipline to which she
-was exposed, and the ideas of duty which
w ere inculcated. In the dreams of the
cloister her ardent soul became fired
witLl the ambition of exalted deeds,
whic,h should render her a benefactress
to her race.
After - thus living for six years, the
Jacobin government suppressed the con
vent, anti she took up her residence
with an elderly relative in Caen, where
she remained until she was nearly
twenty-five ;ears of age. Living amidst
the terrible scenes of the revolution,
where the guillotine was in constant
exercise, and the mob daily demanding
the blood of new victims, her thoughts
naturally turned to the possibility of
stopping these horrors. She- mingled
as much as possible with the Girondists
to ascertain who were the principal
agents in those woes which were deso
lating her native land.
Though Denton and R obspierre were
then in their ascendency, the sanguinary
delirium of Marat rendered him more
conspicuous to the mass of the people,
who saw "tyranny and freedom in one
man's hand only." To Marat then the
eyes of Charlotte Corday were directed,
as the one who was deluging the repub
lic in blood. She thought that his death
would arrest tbis flood and save the
lives of thousands. It had been an
nounced that he had proscribed twenty
five hundred victims in Lyons, three
thousand in Marseilles, twenty-eight
thousand in Paris,. and three hundred
thousand in Brittany. Conspiracies
were being organized all over the re
public for the overthrow of the blood
thirsty tyrant. The lover of Charlotte
Corday, whom she idolized with all the
purity and fervor of her impassioned
nature was engaged in on of these con
spiracies, which, if successful, would
cost the lives of thousands, and if un
successful would only consolidate the
power of the tyrant. Charlotte resolved
to free France of the monster at the cer
tain sacrifice of her own life.
All the energies of her being were
now aroused for the accomplishment of
this object. It was no easy matter for
an obscure young lady to get access to
the tyrant so as to be able to assassinate
him. She, however, formed her plans
so cautiously, as to guard against every
conceivable cause of failure. Not an
individual was admitted to her confi
dence. Religious enthusiasm contribu
ted its strength to her enterprise for she
doubted not that she was engaged in a
holy undertaking. Her well read Bible
contained a pencil mark around the
passage :
"Judith went forth from the city, a
dorned with a marvelous beauty, which
the Lord had bestowed on her to deliver
Having made all her arrangements,
she informed her friends that she was
going to England to seek that asylum
which France no longer - afforded. A
few trifling mementoes were conferred
upon her intimate acquaintances, and,
on the 9th of July, 1'193, she took the
diligence for Paris. Her whole world
ly possessions consisted of a parcel of
clothes, and a volume of Plutarch's
Charlotte was tall and dignified, with
prefuse black hair, and long eye lashes,
which seeming even darker than her clus
tering ringlets, gave great depths to her
piercing eyes. Her cheeks were well
filled and had the freshness and the
health of youth, and were often crimson
ed with the blush of excitement or mod
esty. Her dazzling beauty, winning
manners, and vivacity in conversation,
quite won the hearts of her fellow travel
lers, who strove unsuccessfully to draw.
from her the object of her journey, and
her address. One young gentleman be
came so enamored that lie begged per
mission to solicit of her relatives her
hand in marriage. She pleasantly re
pelled the honor, but promised that he
should know more of her ere long.
After a two days' ride, she arrived at
Paris' and Went to a hotel, where shdal
Ter - rYIB—OrLe Dollar a Year
lowed herself a day's rest, that her facul
ties might be in the best condition.—
She had no desire to figure as a heroine.
It was not for fame. that she wished to
sacrifice her life. In the cloister she
had learned the lesson of selt•abuegation,
and rather desired oblivion than noto
riety, as more pleasing to God. She al
so wished the act of assassination to be
a sacred, solemn scene, which should
strike terror into the hearts of tyrants.
She wished it to be public, that many
might witness the just retribution of
fiend-like cruelty.
Her first plan was to kill Marat in
the Champ de Mars, at a great celebra
tion, which was to occur on the 14th of
July. The adjournment of the ceremony
necessitated a change of theatre; and
she decided to strike him in the midst
of the convention, surrounded by his
satellites. She had no doubt that 'the
result to herself would be that her body
would be torn limb from limb. This
plan was frustrated, as Marat, for some
reason, no longer attended the conven
Her only chance now of meeting him
was at his own house ; and it was by no
means easy to obtain access to him there.
Fearing, as ail tyrants do, the dagger
of assassination, he was carefully guard
ed. Dissemulation was necessary to ac
complish her purpose, and she recoiled
from this more than she hesitated to
strike the blow. Her frank, honest na
ture was pained by the necessity of re
sorting to artifice, but in no other man
ner could her end be gained. She there
fore wrote two letters to Marat, request
ing an audience, so worded as, to induce
him to believe her oue of his admirers,
yet capable of a different interpreta
About half-past seven in the evening
of the 15th of July, she attired herself
in the most attractive manner, and pro
needed to the house of Marat. It was
an antique, somewhat dilapidated man
sion, where the blood-stained tyrant,
crowned by the mob, affected the display
of the utmost democratic simplicity.—
He was in his bath, penning ineamatory
appeals and inveighing against his ene
mies. It was not unusual in that day
occasionally to receive visitors in the
bath, and Charlotte, after encountering
considerable opposition, was conducted
to his room.
Marat was wrapped in a soiled bathing
robe, his matted hair bound in a dirty
handkerchief. His receding forehead,
protruding eyes, prominent cheek bones,
and sneering mouth, presented but little
to cause woman's tenderness to withold
the meditated blow. He excited such
a lothing. in Charlotte that she feared
to cast a second , glance, lea he should
notice her horror and suspect her er
With downcast eyes she awaited his
questions. Be inquired as to the state
of Normamdy, and asked the names of
the deputies in Caen. She gave him
some. lie wrote them down, exclaiming
in a voice of exultation :
"Well before they are a week older,
they shall have the guillotine."
At this Charlotte, with all , the strength
which excitement and the intensest en
thusiasm could inspire, plunged a dagger
to the hilt into his heart. With one
piercing shriek for help, the miserable
man fell dead. Charlotte was immedi
ately arrested, tried and condemned to
the guillotine. A. few days aftttr, all
Paris was drawn to her execution, at.
tracted alike by the magnitude of her
crime, and her youth and wonderful
beauty. She ascended the scaffold with
a cheerful and elastic step, and was
bound to the block. She was dressed
in the red robe of a murderess. A cold
rain which was then falling drenched
her to the skin. A vast crowd surround
ed the guillotine, assailing her with
oaths and execrations. She looked a
round upon them with a smile as if it
were an hour of triumph, and they were
friends chanting ber praises. The plank
slowly descended to its place. The axe
glided swiftly through the groove; and
her head dropped into the basket. The
executioner seized it by the hair, and
holding it up, smote it violently upon
the cheek. The observers report that
those cheeks were instantly suffused
With a crimson blush, as tho Ugh dignity
and modesty lasted longer even than
1 life.

A Jocular Epistle from Buckner
The rebel General Buckner has writ
ten the following letter from his head
quarters at Fort Warren,to the editors
of the Louisville Journal:
GENTLEMEN : Amongst other luxuries
of which I have been deprived since my
imprisonment, is the pleasure' of per
suing those chaste and refreshing notices'
with which, for sometime past, your pa
per has honored me : and although in
my progress through the North I have
met wish many attemps on the part of
the press at an imitation of your peculi
arly felicitous style of misrepresentation,
I have found none to equal the original.
I am therefore under the necessity of
applying to the fountain-head. I en
close two dollars, for which please send
me your country daily, to the following
address : Oen S. B. BUCKNER,
Care of Col. J. Dimmick,
Fort Warren, Mass.
P. S.—Since writing the above, our
friend, Col. R. IA . Hanson, has reached
this celebrated resort, and desires me to
add that the present of a demejohn of
whisky which he learns you have promis
ed him would never be more acceptable
than at this time—the lodality and the
latitude, as well as the sentiments of our
neighbors up the harbor, holding out
most tempting inducements to cultivate
a taste for that delightful beverage.—
As a matter of caution, however, he ur
ges me to add that he hopes, that if o the
liquor be of good quality, you will not
venture to taste it, as he might thereby
incur much risk in losing it altogether—
a privation which, hoe ever agreeable to
yourself, would be attended with serious
inconvenience to himself during the pre
valence of the prevailing "nor'easters."

just had an interview, says the Louisville
Journal, with a gentle man of high
character who lives in Ilopkinsville.—
Be says that he heard a lieutenant in
the rebel army speak of Jno. C. Breck
inridge as a, common drunkard. His
int ixication was so frequent that he was
hardly ever able to perform his official
duties. On one occasion a party of sol
diers were sent to destroy some liquors
in a doggery. but Breckinridge, ordered
the liquor to be brought to his quarters,
when he indulged in a drunken revel.--
When his command was ordered to
march on Rochester, Green River, he
pretended to have rheumatism so badly
that he had to stay behind at Russellville
dead drunk. The rebel lieutenant added
that the Confederates had fost all confi
dence in him, and regarded him with
mingled contempt. Alas for human am
bition and folly A few brief months
ago, and he seemed the petted,child of
fortune, and to-day he is a detested and
and despised traitor, groveling in the
very gutter of disgrace.
few days ago, as Gen. Buell was riding
on horseback through the streets of
Nashville, an aristocratic lady,.a Mrs.
W., living in a fine, large house, stood
at an open door or window, waved a
rebel flag toward him, and cried, "Hur
rah for Jeff Davis and the Southern COD
federacy,!" The General reined in his
horse, turned toward the lady, touched
his hat with all the courtesy and suavity
for which he is remarkable, and, survey
ing the fine house from top to bottom
with the eye of . a connoisseur, quietly
remarked, "An excellent house for a
hOspital." In less than two hours every
room was full of sick soldiers, and Mrs.
W. was politely requested to take kind
care of them. We heartily congratulate
her upon her blessed' privilege of minis
tering to the needs of suffering patribts.
