The 1.0-t Child.
[The following (xqui-it-1 j simple Tenet, from the
pen of an "unknown,'" wilt touch tho heart of every
father and mother :]
The chill NoTember day was done,
The working world home faring;
The wind came roaring through the str.ets,
And sit tho gas lights Hiring ;
And hopelensiv and aimlessly
The sea ed old leavss were flying :
When, mingled with the sighirg wind,
1 heard a small voice crying.
And *>hivoring on the corner »■; . .1
A child of Issjf or over,
No chiak nor hat ber small, soft anus
And wind bbiwn curls to cover.
I!er dimpled lie was stained with tears;
afar round blue eyes ran over ;
Sb« ehartshe \ la her wee, colß hand,
A bunch ct tttts. clover.
Aud c ne hand around her treasure, while
She eltppe • in mine the other;
Ball scared, half confidential, said,
"tlh ! please, 1 w int my mother."
"Tell me yonr street and number, pet j ,
Don't cry, I'll takJyou to It."
Sobbing, Rho answered,"! forget;
Tho organ made mo do it.
Be came and played at Mllly's steps ;
Tim mot kv-y took the monoy,
And so I followed down fio street,
Tbe monkey was so funny.
I've walked a*>out a bundrnd hours,
From one street to another ;
The iuonke>'i gono, I've spoiled my floweii-
(J I pleaso, 1 want my mothe "
"But what's your mother's name, and what
'TJaestr'-ot? now think a minute.*'
"My mother's name is mamma, dear—
The street—l can't begin it."
"But whati-i stiange aboutthe house,
Or new, not like tho others?"
'I gtie"S you mean my trundle bed—
Mine nnd my little brother's.
*'oh p dear, I ought to beat home,
To help him say his prajers ;
He's such a baby, he forgeta,
Aud we are L-.»; h such players ;
And there's a bar between to keep
From pitching on each other,
For Harry rolls when he's aa'eep ;
Oh! dear, I want my mother."
Tho sky grow t-tormy ; people passed,
All muhied, homeward Raring;
"You'll have to spend the night with mo,"
1 said, at but, d spalring.
I tied a 'kerchief round her neck—
"What ribbon's this, my blossom V
"Why, don't you know 1" she smiling, asked,
And drew it from her bosom.
A card with number, street and name,
My eyes astonished met it;
"For," *ald the little one, "you see
I might sou-etimeforget it:
And so I wear the little thing
That toll you all a">ont It;
For mother says she's very euro
I wculd get lost without It."

love was rudely stopped by the girl's
father, and the young man, finding he

stern decrees of fate with the best grace
possible, ond married the girl.

REPUBLICAN MHONAL PLATFOUM.
Iho National Republican # party of the United
States, assembled in National Convention in the city
of Chicago, on tho 21st day of May, 186G, make the
foliowing declaration of principles:
1. Wo congratulate the country on the assured
success of the reconstruction policy of Congress, as
ev.nced by tho adoption, in the majority of tho
States lately in rebellion, of constitutions securing
oqual civil and political rights to all; and it is tho
duty of the Government to sustain those institutions
and to prevent the people of such States from being
remitted to a state of anarchy.
2. The guaranty by Congress of equal euffrage to
all loyal men at the tioutti was demanded by ovory
consideration of public safety, of gratitude, aod of
justice, and must be maintained ; while the question
of fcuffrage in all tfi% loyal States properly belongs
to the people of those States.
3. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a na
tional crime ; nnd the national honor requires tbo
payment of the public indebtedness iv the utter
most good faith to all creditors at homo acd abroad
not only according to lottor, but tho spirit ofthe
laws under which it waa contracted.
4. It is due to the labor of tho nation that taxa
tion should bo equalized, and reduced at rapidly as
tbe uational faitu will permit.
6. The national debt, contracted ai it bus been for
the preseivatiou of the Union for all time to como
should be extended ovor a fair period for ledomptiorr
and it io the duty of Congresi to reduce tha rate of
interest thereon, wheuevor it can he honestly done.
6. That the boat policy io diminish our burden of
debt ia to so improve our credit that capital. uts wi. 1
seek to loan us money at lower rates of interest than
we now pay, and must continue te pay so long as re
pudiation, partial or total, open or covert, is threat
ened or suspected.
7. The <Jovernme*it of tho United State* should be
administered with the strictest economy; and the
corruptions which have been so shamefully nursed
and f.Btered by Andrew Johnson call loudly for radi
8. We profoundly deplore the untimely and tragic
death of Abraham Lincoln, and regret tho accession
to thoPresideiuyol Andrew Johnson, who haa acted
treacherously to the peoplo who olected him and the
cause ho was pledged to support; who has usurped
high legislative and judicial functious; who has re
fused to execute the laws ; who has usod his 1 igh
oflice to induce Other officers to ignore and violate
the laws; who has empluyod his oxocutivo powers
to reuder insecure the property, tho pence, liberty
and life of the citizan ; who has abusej the purdon
ing power; who has denounced the national legisla
ture as unconstitutional; who has peidintently and
corruptly resisted, by every means iv his power,
every proper attempt at the reconstruction ofthe
States lately iv rehellion; who has perverted the
public patronage lutoan ongiue of whoUsalo cor
ruption; and wiio has been justly impeached for
high crimes and misdemeanors, aud properly pro
nounced guilty thereof by the vote of thirty five
0. The doctrine of Great Rritain and other Eu
ropean powers, that because a man is once a subject
he is always so, must be resisted at every hazard by
the United Statos, as a relic of feudal times, not au
thorised by the laws of Latioos, and at war with our
national honor and independence. Naturalized cit
izens are entitled to protection in all their rights ol
citizenship, as though thoy were native-born; and
no citizen of the Uuited States, native or natural
ized, must be liable to arrest aud imprisonment by
any foreign powor for acts, done or word., spoken in
this country ; and, if ao arrested and imprisoned, It
is the duty of the Coverumont to interfere Iv his be
10. Of all who were faithful in the trials of the
late Mar, there were none entitled to more eapecittl
honor than the brave soldiers and seamen who en
dured the hardships of campaign and cruise, and im
perilled their livos in the service of the couutry;
the bounties aud pensions provided by tbo laws for
these brave defenders of tho nation are obligations
never to be forgotten ; the widows and orphans of
the gallant dead aro the wards of the people—a m*
cred legacy bequeathed to the nation's protoctiug
11. Foreign immigration, which in the past has
added so much to the wealth, devtlopemont, tind re
sources, and increase of pjwer to this republic, tho
asylum of the oppressed of all nations, should bo
fostered aod encouraged hy a llboral and just policy.
12. This convention declares it-tolf in sympathy
with all opprtlsed peoples struggling for their rights.
13. That we highly coinmeud the spirit of mag
nanimity and forbearance with which men who have
served in the rebellion, bu r who now frunkly and
honestly co-operate with us In restoring the peace'
of tho country aud reconstructing the feouth
eru State governments upon the basis of impartial
justice and equal rights, are received back into the
communion ot the loyal pe?ple; and we favor the
removal of the difqaaUHcitions aud restrictions im
posed upon tbe late robots in the same measure as
the spirit of disloyalty will die out, and as may be con*
lUtunt wiih the safety of tho loyal people.
14. Thai we recognize the great principles laid
down in the immortul Declaration of Independence,
as the true foundation of democratic government
nud we hail with gladuoas ivory effort toward mak
ing these priuupb » a living reality ou every Inch of
