Le Marais Du Cygne.
A Bi.usn as of roses ,
Where rose never grew !
Great drops on the bunch-grass,
But not of the dew I
A taint in the sweet air
For wild bees to shun t
A staiu that shall never
Bleach out in the sun 1
Back, steed of the prairies !
Sweet song-bird, fly back !
Wheel hither, bald vulture !
Gray Wolf, cull thy pack I
The foul human vultures
Have feasted and (led ;
The wolves of the Border -
Have crept from the dead.
From the hearths of their cabins,
The fields or their com.
Unwarned and unweapntied,
The victims were torn,
By the whirlwind or murder
Swooped up and swept on
To the low, reedy fen-lands,
The Marsh of the Swau:
With a vaiu plea for mercy
No stout knee was crooked ;
In tjie moatlft or the rifles
Right manly they looked.
How pale the Ma sunshine,
Green Mnrois dn Cyngc,
When the death-smoke blew over
Thy lonely ravine 1
In the homes of their rearing,
Yet warm with their lives,
Ye wait the dead only,
Poor children and wivts !
Put out the red forge-fire,
Tho t miib shall uot come ;
( Unyoke tho brown oxen.
The ploughman lies dumb.
Wind slow from the Swan's Marsh,
O dreary death-train,
Wilb pressed lipg ug bloodU-BS
As lips of the slain I
K,Us down the young eyelids.
Smooth dowu the gray hairs ;
Let tears quench the curses
That bum through your prayers
Strong man of the prairies,
Mourn bitter ana wild I
Wail, desolate woman I
Weep fatherless child i
But the grain of God springs np
From the ashes beneath,
And the crowu of His harvest
Is lifo out of death.
Not lu vain on the dial
The shadu moves along
To point the great coutraata
Of right aud of wrong j
Freo home and free altars
And fields of ripe rood ;
The reeds or the hwau's Marsh,
Whose bloom is or blood.
On the linUl or Ksnsss
That blood shall not dry
Henceforth the Bad Angel
Shall harrulots go by I
Henceforth to the snuset,
Uuchecked on her way,
Shall Liberty follow -
The march of the day.

whom I huro been associated, not one Luk
achieved permanent rocccss equal to the

their number, the penitentiary, the hospital

A Modest Suggestion.

Mr. Hall the editor of the Philadel

Atlantic cable., lie says :
" How we are to fix the transatlantic

be obliged to remodel tho language and in
vent tenses combining the present with the

of action Clocks determine time. But
how, when at four o'clock in the afternoon,
we learn that a fire took place in Oxford

A Financial Joke. A correspondent
sends the BuffaJa ifrst the following
K , the President of a Pennsylva
nia railroad, during the coufusion and pan-
ie last full, called upon the W Bunk,
with- which the road had kept a larce. reg
ular account, and asked for an extension of
a part of its paper falling due iu a few
days. The bank president decliucd rather
abruptly, saying, iu a tone common wiih
"Mr. K., your paper must be paid at ma
turity. We cannot renew it."
"Very well," our friend replied, and left

drop here. On leaving the bank, he walk
ed qnietly over to the depot and teleirraph
ed all the agents and conductors on the
road to reject the bills on the W . Bank.
In a few hours the trains began to arrive.
full of panic, and bringing the news of dis
trust of tho W Bauk all along the
line of the road. Stockholders and deposi
tors flocked into the bank making the panic,
inquiring, "what's tho matter?" "Is the
bank broke ?" A little inquiry by tho offi
cers showed that the trouble originated in
the rejection of the bills by the railroad.
The presideut seized his hat and rushed
down to the Quaker's office, and came bust
ling in with the inquiry:
"Mr. K., have you directed the refusal of
our currency by your ngents ?"
"Yes," was the quiet reply.
"Why is this ? It will ruin us."J
"Well, friend L., I supposed thy bank
was about to fail, as thee could not renew
a little paper for us this morning."
It is needless to say that Mr. L. renewed
tho Quaker's paper and enlarged his lino of
discount, while the magic wires carried all
along the road, to every agent tho sedative
message, "The W Bank is all right.
Thee may take its currency."
The Creed of Dives.
The new Poem by Mr. Butler, author of
"Nothing to Weor," entitled Two Millions,
and just published, is an amazingly clever
production, and will moro than maintain
the high reputation of tho author. Here
are few lines, showing what an -excellent
man was Mr. Firkin, the Divcspf tho
His creed was simple oi a creed could be,
Firkin bolieved iu Ihirgs that be could see;
Things that were palpable to sight aud touch",
That be could measure by the test " bow much,"
And grasp securely-iu his mental dutch.
He bad a lively fuith iu the Five Seusca,
They never cheated him wiin false pretences,
Not put him off to doubtful evidences;
These aud his mother wit were all his light.
What could be safer than to walk by sight ?
"He had been young, and now was old," he said,
- But never had he seen tho self-made man
Forsaken, nor his children begging bread,
Provided they pursued their lather's plan,
All through their lives, as he himself had done,
And kept a sharp look out for Number -Cue!
A golden rule, 1- irkiu bad early learned,
Aud every hour to good advantage turued;
This, aud such precious maxims us abounded
In that pure word of riches, wisdom, health,
Accordiug to Poor Rioiard, as expounded
By Doctor Franklin, in hi Way la Wtalth,
Served him for law and gospel aud traditiou,
Aud he himself their luminous exposition.
These were the final lights, iu whose clear ray
He could divide the Uuiverse, straightway,
Juia the things that would and wouldn't pay.

Tax a neighbor's good offices as reldom
