Bide your time! One filso step taken
Perish all you yet have done;

Would you win your rights forovor,
Calm and thoughtful, bide your time!
Bide your timo! Your worst transgression
Were to strike, an I strike, in vain;
He whoso arm would smite Oppression

Danger makes the brave man steady
Rishness is the coward's crime
Be for Freedom's battle ready,
When it comes but, bide your time!
BIDE YOUR TIME. LIGHT FOR ALL.
BY J. GOSTIC.
Yon cannot pay with money
The million sons of toil
The sailor on the ocean,
The peasant on the soil,
Tho laborer in the quarry,
The hewer of the coal;
Your money pays the hand,
But it cannot pay the soul.
You gaze on the cathedral,
Whose turrets meet tho sky;
Remember the foundations
That in eartli and darkness lie;
Por, were not those foundations
So darkly resting there,
Ton towers could never soar up
So proudly in the air.
The workshop must be crowded
That the palace may be bright;
If tho ploughman did not plough,
Then tho poet could not writo.
Then let every toil be hallowed
That man performs for man,
And have its share of honor,
As part of one great plan.
'See, light darts down from heaven,
And enters where it may;
The ryes of all earth's people
Are cheered with one bright day,
And let the Mind's true sunshine'
Bo spread o'er earth as free,
And fill the souls of men,
As the waters fill tho sea.
The man who turns the soil
Need not have an earthly mind;
The digger 'mid the coal
Need not be in spirit blind:
The mind can shed a light
On each worthy labor done,
As lowliest things are bright
In radiance of the sun.
The tailor, ay tho cobbler,
May lilt their heads as men
Better far than Alexander,
Could he wake to life again,
And think of all his bloodshed,
(And all for nothing too!)
And ask himself "What made I
As useful as a shoel"
What cheers the musing student,
The poet, the divinel
The thought that for his followt-.rs
A brighter day will shine,
Let every human laborer ,
Enjoy the vision bright
Let the thought that comes from hem-to
JJe spread like heaven' t own light!
Yo men who hold the pen.
Rise like a band inspired;
And, poets, let your lyrics
With hope for man be fired;
Till the earth becomes a temple,
And every human heart
Shall join in one great service,,
Each happy in his part,
Each moment has its sickle, emulous
Of Time's enormous scythe, whose ample
sweep
Strikes empires from the loot; each moment
plays
His little weapon in tne narrow sphere
Of sweet domestic comfort, and cut down
The fairest bUom of sublunary hWn.-Tmmg,.

THE BEAUTIFUL SLAVE.
A fl.fntli9!ntn at fnrttinn Km lfnt - J
a Icttor from his brother, whi la Proai.lnn,
ofonoof the Mabila banks, who mentions
among other matters ralativj to tho present
distressing tiitna, soma interesting inoidarits
touching the sale of thfi elfiau of a lata mer
chant ot that city, a Mr. N . This g.in-
uuiiiin was pouasjej qi a uaiuium Slave,
tbotit eightoon years old. At tliB North,sha
would havo baea takan for a brunette; beinj
is unlike tin French Creole as possible, in
deed, it was said that shi had noLa drop of
French, aril but precious little African btood
in bar voins. Nevertheless, sho was a slave
at the tint; of her mister's failure, and as
such, becams the property of his creditors.
An individual, a broker to who.n he owed
soma $10,0,)J, determined to possess himself
oi ins gin, it possimc, and It was likewise,
the intention of tho broken merchant to re
deem her at nil h-izirdt. All tha orn titir.

except the broker agreal tli it N m'nrht
u: . I ... . . .
rci.no ma siave on giving a gooj endorsed
twelve months' note for $1 jl.lt), with interest.
Ha alone domanJod thaailn of thn o-irl un
der the hammar, and tho unfortunate mer
chant was coinpolled to submit determin
ing, however, to havo soma cf his friends
buy her for him. The day of sale having ar
rived, Mr. N was under no apprehen
sion but that he could retain his Martha for
something less t'aan $31)00, and he bad made
arrangements to meet that sum in full, and
commissioned one of his friends to make the
purchase for him. But what was his sur
prise and indignation to see his refractory
creditor m ike the first bid 2300 ! Ho was
not thus to be baulked, and his friend bid
$2G00. The creditor, however, persisted in
overbidding, until tha beautiful Martha was
struck olf to him at if! 153')!
It was utterly out of tho power of tho bro
ken merchant to raise money even for the
last bid ho had nude upon his Martha, had
it succcede in purchasing her, and his cred
itor would doubtless have still ovet-hid him,
had he gone higher. Ho must, therefore, lose
her or pay the full amount of $10,000 debt,
which it was impossible for him to do.
What was then to be donel Martha would
never consent to part with her master. ' He
had purchased her on his first arrival at the
South, more than eight yoars a-o, at her own
request, she then living about twenty mih-s
from Mobile. He had given her every ad
vantage of education, and brought her up as
tenderly as though she wore his own daugh
ter; and now sho Would sooner nnrt wilhTilu
itself than become a slave.
Her feelings, on learning her situation, (for
N had carefully concealed the announce
ment of the sale from hor h-pw nrM.jl.Kr
similar to those which the proud daughter of
any citizen wouiu experience iu like predic
ament; for the fact of her being a slave was
known to but few in Mobile. She therefore
sent word to her purchaser, that she would
never leave her present abode alive. In an
swer to this message, he sent two officers to
take her into custody. Meantime, Mr. N
bad encouraged her that she should certain
ly escape her doom, and embark Tor New
York. Whither lie Would inin linr in l,nrt
time, never again to return, and he would
mere marry ner.
Martha was shortly after this, placed in
the common jail at Mobile as a stubborn ser
vant; but, fortunately the keeper interested
himself in her bchaff, and she enjoved equal
comforts to tho3e of her master's ho'uso.
Just t?u days after this, Martha signified
her consent to leave the prison, and take up
her abode with ber new master tho heartless
creditor of N . With pleasure and sur
prise she was liberated by the purchaser, who
appropriated a handsome apartment in his
house to her use. The same night the start
ed fur Savannah per erpras, unknown to any
one save the faithful N . Ond thousand
dollars reward was immediately ofl'ered for
her apprehension, and the detection of those
who aided in her escape; and on the fifth day
the reward was doubted messengers also
having been sent to New Orleans, and in sev
eral other directions.. A fortnight passed, and
no tidings of thn beautiful slave Martha
'Every one suspected, though no one could
prove that her former master had aided in
her escape. Mr. N had now nearly ar
ranged his affairs, and was about to leave
Mobile. His stubborn creditor had Xiied, by
every means in his power, to procure an in
dictment against him, but without success'
when, on tho evening before N's departure,
his friend, at his desire, called upon the cred
itor,. to endeavor, if possible, to purchaso a
release of the title of Martha. 'N o,' replied
the broker, 'I would sooner spend $10,000
than bo tricked by the infernal Yankee!"
N took his leave, depositing $300 with
his friend, which was all tho spare money
he had, and instructing him to purchase with
it the freedom of Martha, if possible.
Within one month from the timo N
left Mobile, the extensivo bouse of R. M. &
Brothers, cotton 'brokers, stopped payment;
and in due time the sale of their personal
property devolved upon an auctioneer. A
mong Iho living chattels disposed of, the ti
tle to the beautiful slave Martha, then absit,
but who cost $ 1500, was struck off to a friend
of N. for SiGi !
This uarrative is, no fiction the writer of
the J.;Ur first mentioned being tlm identical
purchaser of the jla.v Martha. Hit imme
diate object in writing to the gentleman who
furnished us with the above, was to ascertain
.the whereabouts of his friend N , as he
had been unable to bear from bim sinoe his
important purchase, though he had immedi
ately written to New York, acouaintinrr him
with it. We have been promised anlntro

THE LAST CIGAR.
Tobaooo) 'tis a filthy Witi,
It drains ths p.rclrjt, soouts the clot'bet,
And inakot a chimney of tho nose.
Tho story which I am about to relate Is
one in which I Iiivj a double object The
first, to prove to you the folly of tbs expan
sive, useless and injurious praotlos of using
tobacco. The second, to induce you by re
lating my aid experience '.hough not sigh
tden years of age '.o quit, if any of you havu
fallen a victim to a hibit, thit oucio formed,
can only bo broken by the strangest perseve
rance and mast rigid soll'-d mi.il. When you
road the story, you hava the satisfaction, if
satisfaction it be, of knowing it is trim.
It was a cold, rainy evening in tha month
of Much, as I was hurryinj up Broadway,
(New York) wit'i my eyes intently fixed up
on a brilliant lig'it gleiming l'ro:u tha win
dow of a nat far distant cigir shop, that I
was accosted by a poor but neatly clad girl,
about uineyeirs old, who asked in a pitiful
but com ninding tons for "som bread." I
had boan often called upon by unworthy look-
inT RHN-ina fur nifl. nnil ll 111 na nftnll tilrnail
a deaf ear to their wauls excusing myself
liy saying, "tuoro are so many unworthy
oaoi calling upon our charity, we know nut
upon whom we bestow our gifts."
But I could not think so in the case of this
little girl. She stood with her bare feet on
tho cold wot pavement; her dress as I could
see from tho light sliinin ffro:u tha shop win
dow though somewh it the "worse for wear"
was clean; aud her whole person displayed
that unassuming, natural appearance unchar
acteristic of that unfortunate class of which
sho was a member.
Dtsirous of knowing more of her history;
I commenced a conversation by asking her
which she would rather have, bread or mon
ey? !Shp looked at me hesitatingly and said,
".Sir, i want bread I have a sick mother and
two small sisters"
Here she stopped, choked with emotion,
and the tears came to her eyes.
"Have you no father.'" said J.
'! h ive," she saH unhesitatingly, "but he
drinks; life does not live lit home."
The story was told I was satisfied. I put
my hand into my pocket, but alas! a solitary
sixpence was its occupant. I hesitated, and
thought of the expected luxury, of the cigar
store. I thought too, that tho sixpence would
get a loaf of bread, and thus ameliorate tliu
the wants of a suffering family; but the strong'
tiropensity ot a still stronger cigar, pot the
letter of my good intention, and I told her,
"I was sorrv. hut I hnd na mnnev tn xivtw I
If I had I would willingly give it 'to bet." I
Mie lelt mo witn a look ol sadness, and 1.
turned my eyes from her disgusted with my
own act, and pursued my way to the cigar
shop. I would havo directed her to my home,
but, tlidtiistui.ee rendered it impracticable,
I purchased my cigar and went home smo
king; hut I could not help thinking of the.
poor littlejgirl. Strange thoughts ran through
my mind. I would ask myself from which
I could derive the most pleasure, seeimr myself
making use of an -unnatural substance, tobao-l
co, or in seeing the suUenngpoor use the. natur
al staff of life.hrcadl Then I would wnnder'lf
the little girl met with any mure liboral rthnu
myself hoping that she did. 'I finally teach
ed my homt ; and n J eutcrcd the roui Ue
clock struck nine.
The .funnily had retired; 1 took a sest ne.;r
the fire and eat rin a nuiet tpond while tlni
smoke ascended from my lighted digat. Tim
only noise that disturbod my cars was .the
tieking of tiio.elnck and the occasional snap
ping of 'the half burning embers in tho fire.
The lamp had grown dim for the want of.
retrimming. 1
Thus 1 sat, half inclined to -dt.cp, till 3
knew fire bad reached that part of my cigar
that was. wet, by the continued hissing it oc
casioned. I looked up. the room was blue
with smoke; I cast my ryes upon tho -clock
it was half past liiue, another half hour had
gone gone forever ! And wh it 'have I ac
complished! This started a new -train of
ideas. I laid my cigar on the tiblo, took
from my pocket a pencil, and made ac JjU ,
lowing notes and calculations:
Commenced smoking w hen liine years old,
(through the influence of other boys under
the itiutaken idea of making a man of my
self,) at the age of ten 1 oirld tmoico the
troiigest cigar without feeling that dirAiiicss
it first produced, and at the early age of elev
en, 1 found myself a coiifii iueil votary a that
odious, vicious habit ofsmok'uig!
From eleven years to my present age (sev
enteen ytarsand four mouths) I know two ci
gars a day would be a modertta -estimate
many was the day for the last two years tfcat
six would not excuse me.
Counting two a day from my e'evenrh year,
and including all that I had sinoked the two
years previous, it nrtounts to four -thousaud
six hundred and twenty cigars.
Allowing each cigar to be, on an avenge,
three and a Itak' itches in length, would be
one thousand three hundred and foriy-n'me
feet and two inches of an emetic that 1 con
sumed, which, had I swallowed a piece the
size of a pin, would baye lUrowu me Into
horrid convulsions.
Each cigar cost me at least ono cent, mid
some eost more; this would amount to forty
six dollars and tweniy cants ith interest.
I never smoked a cigar in less than half
an hour and never did anything else while
smoking.
My .time was worth nt a moderate estimate,
three cents an hour. This would amount to
sixty-nine dollars and thirty-one cents.
When I looked over the result, and found
-that I had spent nincty-fivo dollars and . fl'ty
cents; dook i nianlhsinconratMig tint winch

age of seventeen and when I thought how
many lnave.4 of bread tho money would h tn
bought that 1 had worse than wasted, and
how' much useful learning I might have &
