AT THE OFFICE OF
Til E JESFFjERfcOSIAa.
Here is another of Tennyson's exquis
ite little lyrics. It is worthy oMiis pen,
and only TcnnTson could have written
Sit down, sad soul and count
The moments Anns:
Come tell the sweet amount .
That's lost by sighing.
How many smiles? a score?
Then laugh and count no mom,
For day is dying!
Lie down, sad soul, and sleep,
And no more measure
The flight of Time, nor weep
The loss of leisure;
But hero, by this lone stream.
Lie down with us3 and drenm,
Of Starry treasure!
We dream do thou the same;
We love forever; jf
.We laugh, yet few wc shamo
The gentle, never;
Stay, then, till sorrow dies
Then hope and happy skies
Are thine farever!
OrWho wrote the following betrotifcl ep-
itaph on an infant!
Beneath this stone in sweet repose,
Is laid a mother's dearest pride;
A flower that scarce had waked to life
And light and beauty arc it died.
God in his wkdoin has recalkgk
The precious boon His ioe Td given;
And though the casket monkiars here,
The gem is sparkling now in Heaven.

i civil lawyer, did their utmost for the de-
ience; anu incy were couuouieu uy iax-
well and lleedcr, and found them their
equals. The case was tried with great
patience by the Court, all possible latitude
was given counsel or either side, no point
was raised that was not ably argued by
counsel, and deliberately decided by the
Court. The Court gave the Jury a very
impartial charge of about an hour and a
half, and they returned iu about 3 hours
with a verdict of guilty against Field
and Dech in manner and form as they
stood indicted, and a verdict of guilty a
gainst Lachenour on four counts of tho
indictment. There being no evidence a
gaist Park nn, by direction of the Court,
he was discharged by the Jury, at an
early stage of the trial; and on Friday
last was discharged by proclamation.
The Defendants, except Stevenson, wero
all wealthy. Lachenour is said to Ue
worth one hundred thousand dollars, and
Field i3 worth, perhaps, thc one fourth of
that amount. They have been made "an
example to all others in like case offend
ing, and we trt thafc all others, in eve
ry condition of life may profit by it.
Eas.ton throughout this case, has been
brought into notoriety throughout tho
whole ITuion; and we rejoice that it can
not bo said with truth, as in the AArard
case, in Kentucky, that the Court and J u
rv of our county failed to do justice to
the Commonwealth as well as to the crim
