```till She Keeps Rocking Him."
Still she keeps rocking him,
Ever caressing him,
Brushing the hair from
His colorless brow.
Softly they've whisper'd her,
"Life has gone out of him; "
Gently she answers,
"How still he is now!"
Still she keeps rocking him,
As though she would shake from him
The cold baud of death,
Like the weights From his eyes;
itoeking, the clay of him,
While softly , y, the soul of him
Angels are rocking
Far up in the skies.

It was on a cold chilly night of De
cember, that a tired young soldier, with
his comrades lay down upon his blanket
for a night's rest. It was, not long ere
sleep crept quietly over his weary eye
lids, and as he slept he dreamed. He
was once more in his beautiful home
enjoying all- its blessings. He once
more gathers,around that happy fireside,
with all those loved ones whom he hid
left, doubting whether he should ever
return. Oh, can it be pessible that he
has been spared through all the battles
in which he was exposed; to enjoy once
more the comforts and blessings of
home. As he sits there, by the fireside,
his mind wanders back to soldier life.
He tbinks, how often, when in camp, he
drained the gluss of that poisonous li
quid which has been the ruin of thous
ands. flow often he sat down to the
card table and played with his comrades
to pass away the time. Oh, if his moth
er had known this, would she had given
him such a hearty welcome ? With
these thoughts he awoke, not to see the
gentle face of his mother, or the loving
smile of his sister, but only to the forms
of his sleeping companions. He won
dered whether they would be as disap
pointed in 'their dreams as he was in
He began to think over his dream.
No, he does not know that he shall
ever again be permitted 'to enjoy the
blessings of the home of which a few
moments before he had been dreaming.
He resolved from that moment never
again to unite in drinking liquor or•play
iog cards with his comrades. He was
often tempted to do so, afterwards, but
in an instant he would think of the
thoughts that occupied his mind, as in
his . dream 'ha eat by the fireside of his
happy home, and he remained true to
his resolution. NETTIE.

Information for Election. Judges.
VERY IMPORTANT :—We find the fol
lowing important extracts from decis
ions made in regard to the right of per
sons absent, for a time, from their resi
dence, to vote, in a late number of the
Washington (D. C.) Chronicle. This
should be cut out and kept for future
reference. " There are many, clerks in
the employ of the General Government
in this city," says a writer in. The Daily
Chronicle, "who are anxious to exercise
the elective franchise at their State and
Municipal elections, but who, having
been told that by removing their fami
lies to this city, paying taxes here, &c.,
they have lost their domicil at thefr for
mer place of residence, feel somewhat
in doubt what to do. Some of these
men were denied the right to vote at
the recent State elections, and simply
because they were living in and around
Washington with their familieS. That
these men may not thus be disfranchised
by a set of Copperhead judges, I would
call their attention to the following de
cision and references. "A person who
removes to Washington and holds a
public office there does not thereby lose
his domicil in the place of his former
residence, unless he intends permanent
ly to reside at Washington." [See Gil
christ's Digest, page 193, 2d par.] In
the case of Atherten vs. Thornton, N.
U. Rep., vol. 8, page 178, it was sub
mitted in evidence that defendant
(Thornton) resided with his family and
had his domicil in Merrimack, county of
Hillsborough. previous to July, 1830,
when he was appointed to an office in
the Treasury Department of the United
States, and went to the city of Wash
ington;.and in November following, he
removed his wife and one child (leaving
one with his mother at Merrimack) to
Washington, where he lived in a hired
house until the summer of 1831, when,
in consequence of the ill 'health of his
wife, she and the child returned to his
house in Merrimack and there boarded
with his mother. On the first of Octo
ber, 1831, the defendant (Thornton)
went to Merrimack, and on the 234 of
November, same year, returned to Wash
ington with his family, and kept house
there until the 7th of September, 1832,
when, on account of sickness in his fam
ily, he 'abandoned housekeeping, and
his wife and children went to Newton,
Connecticut, where they remained until
Si;ptember 1, 1833, when they returned
to Washington, and he again commen
ced hOusekeeping there. In April,lB34,
his family returned to Merrimack.
Thornton had paid taxes in Washington
during this time. 'He had often declar
ed that he did not intend to make
Washington his permanent residence,
but that he intended to return to Mer
rimack, It was decided in this case
that Thornton retained his domicil in
Merrimack, Judge Parker holding that
the domicil which Thornton had acquir.:
isd in Merrimack had been retained, not-'
withstanding his personal residence with
his family in Washington. It has been
generally considered that persons ap
pointed to public office under the au.
thority of the United States, and taking
up their residence in Washington for
the purpose of executing the duties of
such office, do not thereby, while enga—
ged in the service of the Government,
lose their domicil in the place where
they before resided, unless they on re
moving there intend to make Washing
ton their permanent residence. In many
cases actual residence is not indispensa.
ble to retain a domicil after' it is once
acquired, but it is retained, 6ninio so/o,
by the mere intention not to change it.
See Judge Parker,,Atherton vs. Thorn
ton, Story's Conflict of Laws, 39-45 55 ;
Pickering's Rep., 377 ; Harvard. College
vs. Gove, Thompson Digest, D. C.,
Mass. Reports, vol. 17, on domicil,
&c. It was held by persons of no less
eminence and legal ability than Daniel
Webster . and Caleb Cushing, late United
States Attorney General, that no clerk
in the employ of the United States
cotld .be disfranchised by. the mere fact
of his with, his family ;- and
they even held that;the exercise of the
elective franchise in the municipal affairs
of the District of Columbia did not im
pair the right to vote for President in
States where they had resided and had
their residence.

A Selfish' Bridegroom
A circle of gay, young bachelors in
St. Louis, was thrown into, confusion,
lately, by the desertion of one of their
bar,4llo fell a'victim to the cha . ms
tra beautiful and amiable young lady.
For someteause best known to himself,
the enamored Benedict kept the matter
a secret, and without inviting his bach
elor fried& to the wedding, .had, the
knot tied in an unostentatious manner,
and started on a bridal tour to some
pleasant village in Illinois. •
His friends, of Course, heard, of tlje
wedding the day after ,it (=tried, and
feeling Blighted, detertOned to have' re
venge. When the happy man returned
from his tour, he was taken aback by
being waited a stranger, a de
tective, who produced an order for his
arrest, on a charge of disloyalty. Hav-
ing at one time entertained a - sneaking
sympathy for "our Southern brothers,''
he was greatly troubled. He was, taken
by, the detective into a darkened room,
where the examining board was sitting,
and was surprised, to see that, they all
wore masks and dominoes. .
He asked why he was not allowed. to
see the faces of his judges, and pas told
that they were disguised ,, on account of
the discovery of .s
and traitors in
the Government service. He was then
accused of having uttered such and such
sentiments, in the presence of certain of
his friends, whose names were , given,
endue he could not deny what he had
said, he plead guilty and threw himself
upon the mercy of the court-urged his
youth-and inexperience—the fact of his
recent marriage—the remote probabili
ty of his becoming a father„ Scc.
Although his pathetic eppeal appeer
ed to soften, the flinty hearts of the judg
es, yet it could not turn neicle. :l the• pon
derous hammer of justice, and hes was
sentenced to six, months imprisonment
in the Alton prison,,at hard labor, with
ball and chain' uttached to his left leg.
This was a terrible blow to a 'man who
had been married but three'or four days,
and the prisoner was greatly affected.
After witnessing the misery .Of . the
condemned man for a few moments, the
-mock judges threw off their masks, and
appeared before him as his uninvited
wedding guests. They told him they
had taken this mode of punishing . him
for his failure to invite them to his-Red
ding, and he was so glad to find that
the thing was all a joke, that he treated
the party to a champagne and oyster
supper,‘and promised. that he would
never get married again without their.
The Philadelplahi. North Anadilean tells
the following story :
A well known frequenter, of Third
Street stopped yesterday in a barber
shop, close to the North American
building, sat in a shaving chair, drew a
newspaper from his pocket, and instruc
ted the knidht of the razor to take off
his beard. The barber was an ATaicatr.
He simply replied "yes; boss," and pro
duced his implements. The customer
silt down. He was duly shaved: "His
face was• Wiped, and he arose, donned
hid coat and hat. '
"How much?" he asked, in a dolor
ous yoice,.as he adjusted his . shirt col
"Fifteen gents, boss."
"Why, I thought you shave 4 for ten
cents at this shop."
"Dat aVs de average, sab," was , the
reply. , "Ten cents is,de price

lilies. Up in the rosy sky the new
moon hung, a curved thread of
and - One bright star bore its lance of
peail, against the radiant horizon. I
looked absently up at the fair atmos
pbere—dowiat the blossoming garden
of 'flowers, thinking, in the midst of my
perplexity, how like the blue heaven
was to Agnes' eyes, and marvelling that
the pink roses were so near akin to the
dainty color that came and went upon
her silk-Soft cheek.
BeSide the low French window that
opened upon the piazza floor, I saw the
finv of muslin drapery through the fra
grant gloom—it was where Mrs. Mar
elyffe was wont• to sit with her baby.
I eabglit the refrain of the low, delicious
cradle song warbled in the tiny sleeper's
ear. , A bright thought struck me—l
would take woman's wit into my coun
sel. "Mary," said I, sitting down on
file . piazza step, and leaning my head
against the rose-wreathed pillar just op
posite the window, "I wish you'd tell
me what to do—Pin desperately in love
With' your sister Agnes, and-Idon't

I paused an instant and then went on :
"I love her better than life. No, that
is not saying enough ; 1 would die to
Make her happy, Oh, 'Mary, can't you
give me a word of encouragement ? I
are not tell her my love, because my

There was no answer still.

I spoke with trembling accents, fresh
friain the' deepest recesses of my soul_
the veryliir seemed to sob around me
as I ceased. One instant of silence, in
the soft, pulsing fragrance of the mid
summer twilight,.and then there was a
fluttering &light, azure robes, the fall
of a fairy foOistep.' Ere T could look

my heart !•
Life has been brimming with sweets
ever eince—many a golden moment has

.around my toot-steps, as it passed. into
the world of the bygone; but, in all my
existence, there never came a second
time like that.

groundi the veriest spice of roguery
Oeaming in lier hazel eyes, through a
diiii quiver of joyous tears.
''So I'm really to have a brother-in

and coming forward just as the wicket
fastening clicked under Jack's hand,
and the fiery spark of his cigar flashed
through the purple gleaming, slowly
gavelling up,the garden,walk.
