Winter frill not last Forever.
Wmler will not last forever :
Spring will soon come forth again,
And, with flowers of every color,
Deck the hillside and the plain.
Lambs will soon in fields be sporting,
Birds re-echo from each tree
"Winter's gone ! its days are ended
We are happy we are free !"
Hedge and tree will soon be budding,
Soon with leaves be covered o'er :
Winter cannot last forever ;
Brighter days are yet in store.
Sorrows will not last forever,
Joy our every grief succeeding,
As the sunshine after rain.
As thc snow and ice of winter,
Melt at the approach of Spring,
So will all our cares and trials,
Joy, and peace and comfort bring,
When the heart is sad and drooping,
Think, though you be vexed sore,
Sorrows cannot last forever;
Brighter days are yet in store.
A Novel Marriage In Pennsylvania.
The Lancaster (Pa.) Press says that a
large crowd ot persons assembled in the
Mennonitc Church, in that city, on Sun
day morning last, to witness the marriage
between two members of the Mennonite
persuasion. The ceremony was perform
ed by Rev. John Kohr, assisted by llev.
Christian Wilmer. To those of the audi
ence who never witnessed a wedding of
members of this denomination, the affair
was novel and interesting. The sermon
was appropriate to the occasion. The
preacher read from the 3d to the 10th
verses of the 18th chapter of Matthew,
and from the 22d verse to the end of the
5th chapter of Ephesians, basing his re
marks on these passages of the Scripture.
The whole discourse was devoted to the
duties of candidates for matrimony to
each other, and their spiritual relations
to "Christ, the head of the Church.
At the conclusion of the regular exer
cise the marriage rife was performed in
front of the pulpit. The bridegroom was
asked whether he believed this sister of
his faith was allotted by Christ, to be his
wife, and whether he was free from all
other women's persons. Affirmative an
swers being given, similar questions were
put to the bride and answered. The u
sual questions were put and answered,
when the twain were pronounced man
and wife. The manner of bringing about
marriages between the members of this
denomination differs from that of other
Christians. What is called "courting" is
done by their preachers, the candidates
for matrimonial honors not being allowed
to visit the object of their affections.
When a brother wishes to take to himself
one of the sisters as a wife, the fact is
communicated to the preacher who makes
known to the sister the feelings of this
brother, and if no objections be made on
her part, the bans are published in the
church, and thc wedding takes place in
A lethargic Lover.
The writer of a scientific article iu the
Patrie relates a singular instanse of pro
longed lethargy. A farm servant at Rou
en, who was about to marry, learned sud
denly that his intended bride, with whom
he was passionately in love, had deceived
him, and was on the point of becoming
the wife of another. The young man,
although of an excitable nature, betrayed
no signs of impatience, but yawned,
stretched himself, and then complained
of a heaviness in the head and a feeling
of drowsiness. He went to bed and fell
asleep ; but thc next day it was found
that he could not be awakened. Efforts
to arouse him were made continually for
a week, but with no better success. Hc
was then removed to a hospital, where hc
remained four months without giving auy
other token of life, than an occasional
convulsive movement of the eyes. An
attempt was made to make him swallow
a little wine and broth, but the process
of deglutition did not take place and the
liquids flowed from his mouth. At the
expiration of the above-mentioned period
he awoke and manifested his surprise at
finding himself in the hospital, and could
scarcely believe thul he slept more than
two hours. The alarmiuo: leanness to
which he had been reduced soon disap
peared; he recovered his previous strength
aud shortly after consoled himself for his
faithless sweetheart by marrying another.
An Important Capture.
Lieut. Davis, of the rebel army, was
arrested at Newark, Ohio, a few days since,
lie was on his way from Canada to the
South, via Washington. The importance
of his capture consists in the fact that he
was for some time in charge of thc prison
at Andersonville where our brave soldiers
suffered such torture. He was recognized
on the cars by a young soldier, who had
been a prisoner under him, and had felt
the effects of his brutal tyranny. He
said that his name was Cummings; but
on his arrival at Newark, there happened
to be some other soldiers there who had
been prisoners at Andersonville, and they
too recognized him. Being unable to face
down the array of evidence which eon
fronted him, he finally confessed that he
was the man, and yielded to his fate with
as much composure as he could command.
Capfc. Robert Small, who surrendered
the steamer Planter to our forces, and
who is now in command of a United
States gunboat, was turned out of the

'account of his color:
A Good Story.
A tall Sucker volunteer who is in a
northern city uon detached service," hav
ing lost his health, and havi ng but little
faith in the skill of army surgeous, called
upon Doctor S , a resident practi
tioner, for treatment. The Doctor gave
the case a careful examination, and wrote
out a couple of prescriptions, which he

ing thc necessary directions as to diet.

Going to the nearest apothecary's he

" Why," said our friend the Sucker,
"I just paid an old feller fifteen dollars
for that stuff."
"You paid the Doctor for the prescrip
tion," replied the vender of pills; "this
is for the medicine."
"I tell you I paid that old chap fifteen
dollars, and I won't pay another cent.
Now you just leave these bottles right
here, and give me the prescription, and if
that secesh sawbones don't make it all
right PU break his head for him."
So taking the prescription and assum
ing an air or injured indignation he pro
ceeded to the office of Dr. S-
ching straight up to that erentleman. he
addressed him :
"Look here, old feller, didn't I pay you
fifteen dollars for this 'ere rag ?"
" Yes, sir yes, sir," says Medicus.
"Well, this pill-shop man down here
wants to make me pay two and a half
"That is right, my friend. You see I
only charge you for the prescription ; the
medicine is extra."
"Medicine ! You fellers wants to skin
a feller because he's a soldier ! You
can't come it over me, though I'm a
veteran ! Now you just give me back
my fifteen dollars and take your old pre
Ihe Doctor disgorged thc money, and
our Illinois Yankee threw down the pres
cription in disgust before him, and, with
a twinkle in his eye, left the office.
This little financial transaction over,
our frieud went straightway to thc drug
store, aud with a satisfied expression told
the druggist that he would pay for that ,
medicine now ; lie had fixed it all up with
the doctor ; and forking over the requisite
sum he left.
Upon comparing notes with the drug
gist a few days after, Dr. S was ap
prised of the sell that had been practiced
on him, and the joke soon became known,
but to this day he is decidedly sensitive
ou the subject of his military practice.
The Wooden Watch.
There is an old trick often played upon
couutryuien in London, called the "wood
en dodge." A country greenhorn is walk
ing in thc street, wheu a man, dressed
as a respectable farmer, addresses him, in
quiring the way to sonie street, saying he
is a stranger in London.
"Well I be a stranger myself," replies
Thc sharp then enters into conversa
tion with the flat, and finally invites him
to take a glass of ale with him : they pro
ceed to some public house iu the neigh
borhood. In the tap room is a gentle
man with a haudsorue gold chain. The
chap politely asks him thc time of day.
" can't tell you," replies the man.
"Well, says the sharp, "what is the
good of having a chain without a watch?"
"I have got a watch."
"Let's see it, then, if you have got one?"
.The man refuses, but persists that hc
has a watch. lie soon after goes to sleep.
"Now," says the sharp to the country
man, "I don't believe that fellow has got
a watch', though he has a such a fiue
chain. He's asleep ; I shall see if he has."
He then pulls out the chain of thc
sleeping man and exhibits a round lump
of wood attached to the end of it.
"There," says he, "I knew the fellow
was humbugging; he has got no watch.
Now," addressing the countryman, "we'll
see ii we can i gee mm wnen ne waKcs.
The man wakes up, and the sharp says,
"You have not get a watch."
"I have," replies tlic other : "I'll bet
you five pounds I have got a watch at the
end of this chain." ,
j "Let's bet him' says the sharp to the
countryman. "We'll go halves ; he does
not know that we have looked iu his pock
et, and thinks we won't bet."
I The countryman, having seen plainly
that there was only a piece of wood at
tached to the chain, offers to bet. The
bet is accepted, and thc man who is a
confederate of the sham countryman,
pressing a spring iu the wood, shows that
it encloses a small gold watch, aud takes
possession of the five pounds, thus gain
ing two pounds and ten shillings in the
operation. The sham couutryman con
doles, of course, with the greenhorn, and
takes his departure as soon as possible.
