uiowipr wimi mce pins the .Miss Inniptnwns were,
and that they wanted she should go with them to

night. The mother consentod.hts Mr. Cnmp'town
wm tuoh a fine young niau. After the play they
bad an oyster supper and wine, and Julia became
vry niuoh el iteil. Then they went home, to Mr.
Comptown's home, which wn's no other than that
notorious Chnnh-st. den, nnd tho "sisters'' the
moat notorious sinners in it. Of courso more wine
wa drank, and Julia became oblivious of what
transpired. Sho waked to consciousness next
morning to find herself "a girl lost." Almost
delirious, she flew from the wicked scoundrel at
ber aide to the street door, to Cud it barred ngainst J
her. In rain she begged and prayed, and cried to
be let out. The soul incarcerated in tho infernal
region might as well pray for egress. She finds
' in bath eases only scuffing at the victim's agony.
Then she grew wildly furious, and they tied her
band and feet and carried her down iuto the coal

WELL TURNED. From the Genius of the West.
THE INDIANS FAREWELL.
BY M. LOUISA CHITWOOD.
Is it farther west is it farther west?
The isle of peace nnd tho land of rest;
I had thought to lie where my fathers lie,
Where my fathers died I had thought to die;
And the notes of my death-song low and clear,
To die away in my strong heart here.
But in vain the hope the wish in vain,
I turn my stops to tho west ngnin:
I turn from the mound so green nnd low,
Where thesunlightfulls.undtlio south winds blow:
Whilo waves of agony shake my breast,
To the distant west, to the far off west.
I hnve journeyed long, o'er hills nnd plains,
O or rivers wide, o er mountain chains;
I have slept while the light of the stars wnshright'
In the broad blue tent of tho skies at night,
And heard the strong north wind that blow
From tho icy lip of the god of snows.
And I am here lu the distant west,
Yet whero, oh where, is the land of rest?
For even here, a shadow falls
From the low brown eaves of tho whi.o man's;
And 'ueath the pines nt tho close of day,
Tho pule face rests where the children pluy.
I hear tho loud Pacific roar,
As the dark waves dash on tho sandy shore,
Must I tempt tho deep in my light canoe?
Must my paddle sound on the waters blue?
And is there an island upon its breast,
Where the aged warrior at last may rest?
Oh, wan is the light of my once bright eye,
I am old, and weak, and soon must die;
I had thought to find my brother hero,
And hunting ground with the fleet young deer,
hctv bird might aing, and young bee hum,
A A . , . , , . , . ,
v " .isv
I had thought to find in these dingle deep,
Full many a haunt where the wolf might deep,
here the panther's eye in glaring bright,
uoiiil aownuirougntuo thick green leave at night.
.. ,. . ....
I thought my arrow again uiight rest
With unerring aim in the eagle' breast
But in vain, in vain! I can only die.
With a heart untamed, and tearless eye;
They will coop my grave lu tho yellow clay,
And the white man' children o'er me play:
With their lip of rose, and golden hair;
But where are the red man's children, where?
A scattered, and wrongod, and broken band
But there I rest in the spirit Und.

It waa the iweet old "Corinth" they were tinging

streaming thro' tho west windows, and the silver
hair of the old deacon, who sat in the pulpit was
turned to gold in it light, and the minister, who
we used to think could nover die so good was ho,
had concluded "application" and "exhortation,"
and the villago choir were singing the last hymn,
and the tune wa Coriuth,
It is years we dare not think how many since
then, and "the prayer of David the ton of Jeise,
are ended," and the choir are scattered and gone.
The girl with blue eyes that sang alto and the girl
with black eye that sung air the eyes of the one
were like a clear June heaven at noon.
"They both became wives, and both mothers.
and they both died. Who shall say they are not

Alas! that with the old singer most of the swee

CURE FOR FOUNDER IN HORSES.
The fact I shall give you is of a horse worth three
hundred dollars because of his tleetnoss. Ho came
to my band In August, about eight o'clock in tho
evening, after being driven only twenty-nine miles
with only two persons in a light and easy buggy.
The horse for tome time had been fed all the grain
he would eat. For two or three dnya he hatf not
liked hi grain, but the night before he came to
my hand bo had eaten all he liked; and when tie
came he was to stiff he could not step over a six
inch pole and when he attempted to
turn round would nearly full. I put him into wa
ter nearly knee deep, and kept a wet blanket cm
him all the time for four hours; then put him into
the stable, and put another blanket over him and
left him for the night. The next mouing I found
him sweating; took bim from the stable and rode
him a mile, led him back, aud put him in the brook
again for an hour. During the day I exercised him
about five miles, and about sunset lot him
stand an hour iu tho water, aud again iu the next
About nine o'clock he was started on hisjourney
of forty-two miles, and performed it 'rith ease before
sunset; he laid over ono day and came home
the next, forty-five miles, and was returned to his
owner, and he being a farrier, sold bim in a few
days, perfectly unable to describe any difficulty or
damage done to hi horse, being ignorant of what
had happened. The horse was allotted all the food

Nut long since one, as we thought, and atill be
lieve, of our warmest supporters, came up into our
office, and in a serious and rather austere manner
said to us, "I want to quit taking your paper."
We looked at him imploringly and the thought at
first struck ti to beg of him to hold on, to learn
the cause of his dissatisfaction and to reason the
cause with him. But this course we concluded
might result in humiliation to ns nnd exultation to
him. to with a good deal of "tariff finid" as If,
pshaw! we didn't care to lose him as a subscriber,
we turned to his name, took up our pen, nnd were
in the act of dragging it across, w hen tho fatal
stroke was warded off by his saying, "Stoji!
Stop? I want to pay for the paper, and then it will
be my paper, nnd not ymtrt. This wns putting an
entirely now nnd pleasing construction upon words
which, when literal, are as hitter aa wormwood to
the ears of an editor. The idea seemed to us nt the
time decidedly rich.

.Mora than twenty years have passed since that
great champion of the slavo first threw down the
f;aunllet, saying, "I virtue heard; I vi'f not be si

notyettriumped. Time has proved thnt tho war
fare then commenced is no pastime the enemy on
encountered is no insignificant one. iSo the battle
has progressed, the foes of Freedom hne come out

ing on every side, ns the battlo cry soun

"Sprang up at once the lurking foe.
Much has, indeed, been accomplished. Often
has the enemy boon driven from his outposts, and
many of his munitions of defence been taken and
destroyed; while great numbers hnve been induced
to desert their former positions, and come over nnd

ISAAC T. HOPPER,

BV I.VIilA AtlA CHILD.
THIS thrilling work Is the biography of one of
the most remarkable men the world na ever seen.
His deeds of philanthropy and merry, covering) a
pfriod of nearly four-score yeurs, endeared him not
only to the thousands who were the immediate
participants of his beneficence, but to all who knew
With truth he may be called the HOWARD OF
AMKIUCA. Mrs. C'niLB having spent several
years in his family, and being perfectly familiar
with his history, of all others, was the person to
write "A TKl'Ji J.I KK" of the noble man, and her
task has been performed in her best manner.
From the Srw York Obttrrtr,
" lie was a Quaker of that early sort lllaslrwtedi
by such philanthropists as Anthony llcneset, The.
C'larkson, Mrs. Fry, and the like.
Ho was a most sclf-dcnving, patient, loving friend
of the poor, nnd the suffering of every kind ; and
his liTo wns nn nnbroken history of lienefiesnoe.
Thousands of hearts will feel a touch of grief jt
the news of his death, for few men have so great a
wealth in the blessings of the poor, nnd the grateful
remembrance of kindness and benevolence, a h7'
I'mm the Xeic Turk Tribune.
"Isnno T. Hopper was a mnn of remarkable
endnwinonts, both of head nnd heart. His clear
discrimination, his unconquerable will, his total
unconsciousness of fear, his extraordinary tact in
circumventing plans he wished to frustrate; would
havo made huu illustrious ns the general of aa
army; and these qualities might have become faults,
had they not been balanced by an unusual degree
of conscientiousness and benevolenco. Ho battled
courageously, not from ambition, but from nnin
born love of truth. Ho circumvented ns.adroitly
ns the most practised politician ; but it was alwave
to defeat the plans of those who oppressed Ood
poor never to advnnco his own self interest.
Farewell, thou brave and kind old friend 1 The
prn vers of ransomed ones ascend to Heaven Cur. tit,
and a glorious company havo welcomed thoe to the
