TEE CHRISTIAN'S CREED.
List to the dreamy tone that dwells
In rippling wave and sighing tree;
Go, hearken to the old churek bells,
The whistling bird and buzzing bee.
Interpret right, and ye shall find
'Tis Love and Glory they proclaim
The chimes, the creatures, water, wind,
All publish, " Hallowed be Thy Name."
The pilgrim journeys till he bleeds,
To reach the altar of his sires;
The hermit pores above his beads,
With zeal that never wanes or tires.
But holiest rite or longest prayer,
That soul can yield, or wisdom frame,
What better import can it bear,
Than " l'ather, hallowed be Thy Name."
The savage kneeling to the sun,
To give his thanks or ask a boon;
The raptures of the idiot one,
Who lauihs to see the clear round moon;
The saint well taugh' in Christian lore;
The Moslem bowing at his &nne;
All wonder, worship, and adore;
All end in " llallowed be Thy Name."
Whatever be man's faith or creed,
These precious words comprise it still.
We trace them in the blooming mead;
We see them in the flowing rill.
One chorus hails the Great Supreme,
Each varied breathing tells the same;
The st;ain may differ. but the theme
Is " Father, hallowed be Thy Name."
COURTING IN BROADWAY.
A very singular wedding transpired here this
week. A young and very pretty Irish girl
the sister of one of our common Conneilmen,
was walking up Broadway, New York, when
she attracted the attention of ai eiderly rentle
mani of large wealth, who had lived: all his life
a bacheljr and an asceie: Rumor savs that he
was foiled in nn afairs dui cmrur, and carried
thenceforth in his breast a heart impenetrable to
the sweet influences of the tender passion.
Well, this gentleman on the prome.
attracted by this Irish girl to such a d'
she arrested his steps and ventured
-,Will you pardon the liberty, Wl
your name ?"
The girl timidly surveyed him, an"
in the query, and that lie was:t
"My name is Mary 0, K
"Dare I ask you another a
mean Miss'K - -1
"Proceed, sir," she replied, good humoredly.
" Then I shohul like to a.,k you-mad you
will confer an infinite obligat ion upon me by
answering truly-whether you are en'gaged in
marriage to iy one, or whether your feelings
are interested in any person whatever.
The question was decidedly a honme one, bul
there was so kind and gentie an expression in
the old man's eye, and such an evident eartnest
ness in his tone, that she answered hium freey
" Not in the least, sir."
" Then allow me without any further cerem".
ny to place my card in your hand and with it
the offer of myself and fortune.-Commission i
any friend you please to make whatever inquires
concerning me you may deem proper and let
me know your determination to mofrow.
. The girl overwhelmed wvith surprise, deposi.
ted the slip of pasteboard in the reticule and
passed on. On Wednesday afternoon her brother
called at the hotel where her admirer resided
and informed him that Mary had concluded to
accept him. They were married the same eve.
ning at the residence of the bride's moother and
the old gent leman settled on her one hundred
thousand dollars on the spot.
This gentleman-he would not like me to
give you his name-has held a great many
public offices in his time, was formerly a alajor
in the U. S. Army anid afterwards assistant in
dian Commissioner. His real estate in this city
is worth more than $200,000.
Mary anid the blajor started the next morning
for New Orleans, where the latter has a brother
who is a sort of pecuniary nabob in that city.
STRANGE OCeURRENCE.-A Western editor
on entering his 'aflice, and seeing his apprentice1
boy cutting some queer capers, called out to
" Jim, what are you doing on the floor 1"
" Why, sir, I have had a shock !"
" A shock ?"
" Yes sir."
" What kind of a shock ?"
"Why, sir," said the lad, gasping. " one of
your subscribers enme ini during your ;abence
~said lie owed fo'r twos years' sub.-eri;;tion-pab'l
it, and also paid anuother year in ad~vance."
"In advanee!" gasped the edit or. nearly as
much overcome as his lone apbprentic.
-Yes, sir, and it has produced such an effect
upon me, ,thbat I have been perfectly helpless
"And well you may, Jim. But, get up: if
you survive this, you aire safe, as there is little
prospect of another such catastrophe in this
TERRIJBLE WrT.-Lord Bacon tells of his
father, Sir Nicholas, that when appointed a
Judge on the Northern Circumit he was by one
of then malefactors mightily imuportunedl to save
his life which, when nothing lie said did avail
lie amt length desired his unirey on account of
kindred. " Prithece," said my L'ord Judge, " how
came that in ?" " Why, if it please you,'*tny
- . Lord, your name is Bacon and mise is Hog;
. - and inall ages Hog and Bacon have been so
near kindred that they are not to lbe separated."
" Ay, but," replied Lord Bacon, " you anmd I can
not be kindred except you be hanged ; for Hiog
is not Bacon until it is well hanged!"
Ax Irish lawyer in a neighboring country re
eently addressed the court as "gentlemen,"
instead oft " your honors." After he had conclti
ded, a brother of the bar reminded him of his
error. He immediately arose to apologive,
thus : " May it please the court, in the haste of
debate I call yer honiora gentlemen. I made a
mistake, yer honors." The gentleman sat down,
and we hope thme court was satisfied.
"PaT, you have dated your letter a week
ahead. It is not so late in the month by one
week, you spalpane."
" Troth, boy indade an' it's jist musilf what is

EaMPEROR AT ST. CLoUD.-The Paris corres
pondent of the Herald thus describes the Em
peror and Empress of France at St. Cloud: IN
And now his Majesty is there inl the zenith of bj
his glory. The Empress is with him, inhaling m
the sweet breezes that softly whisper through t
those sheltered odireferous gardens, and is gain. ti
ing health and strength every day. By her bide at
reposes the infant heir of a name which under at
his auspices, Napoleon fondly hopes history a,
will point to with no less pride and admiration C
than to that of his renowned predecessor. h<
The fortune of war has blessed his arms. A ir
peace of his own dictation reigns throughout bi
the world. And at this moment he plays the m
host to two young princes, who look up to him p1
as their Gamliel, as the most wonderful hero of th
their stock, and from whom they may well learn
instruction and wisdom. The Grand duke Maxi. z
miliant, a youth of about twenty-two years of hi
age, and brother of the Emperor of Austria is di
one, and prince Oscar Sweden, the grandson of p:
Bernadotte, is the other, who is but a few years mri
older. With them the Emperor loves to fling d<
aside the pomp snd ceremony that doth beset a fu
In the morning all three are to be seen among w
the Emperor's roses, breathing the fragrant Ha. e
vana, and ehatting laughing, musing arm in arm, m
as if the government of mankind were no part ar
of their vocation. Sometimes the Empress from T
her couch, which has been wheeled to the win- lit
dow of the Salla d'Orangenie, lets fall sweet a1l
words -as the f:bled fairy did pearls-among o0
this trinity of princes; and sometimes the nurse, th
with the heir appearant, is sent to add to the hi
domesticity of the enjoyment. [a an instant a
the enfant de France is caught by one or the ha
other. Now it is the Emperor who gives a ross, m
now prince O.scar, now the young Maximitian sii
till at Liast the nurse is obliged respectfully to w,
remonstrate, and the Fair Eugenie issues an U
Imperial decree that tie Emperor and his guests, a I
shill leave the youig child alone." a
GENTLEMirX AND LaWYER.-In a paragraph fri
from the Pittsburg Chronicle, now going the th
rounds, we see it stated that a duel is shortly c.

Chronicle means what he virtually says, that tri

MR. BROOS' RESIGNATION.
The vote fur the expulsion of Mr. -lirooks
was larger than we anticipated. It had been so
clearly demonstrated that his case did not come
within the constitutional or parliamentary juri
diction of the House. that the country had the
right to supp6se that factious and personal pas
sion would abate, and that Representatives, com
posed down to judicial impartiality. would decide
according to the Constitution and common sense.
The offence was simply one against law, and
the proper legal tribunal had adjudged it. What
ever may have been the merit or demerit of Mr.
Broaks' conduct, moral, social or political, and
apart from the legal or parliamentary, it had not
directly come within the purview of either juris.
diction. Upon its propriety his responsibility
was solely to public opinion and his constituents.
As there was not a constitutional majority-a
two-thirds rote-against him, and consequently
no expulsion, it was his constitutional privilege
to retain his sent, or to consult his sense of the
injustice done him in his character as a Repre
sentative, and resign. His resignition, to he
properly estimated, must be regarded as a digt.

are emphatically to prevent arme~d invasion from
any quarter, and to afford protection to peacea
ble settlers at any cost. Colh. riumner will re
tin his present position in Kansas, subject to
the orders of General Smith, who is entrusted
with large discretionary powers, and is fully
possessed of the President's views on the sub

for this trust with deference to his prudence,
ability and firmness, as well as legal kuowledge,

readers will generally remember the case of
Sydney V. Howard, the interesting and pious
young gentleman who so ingratiated himself
with sotme of our best iitizena, that he secured
a position in the State Batnk, whereby he was
enabled to steal fourteen hundred dollars. He
was hunted with a good deal of energy and per
severence for some months, but he managed to
elude all efforts to ecapture htim. In the appre
hension that he was being pursuied he travelled
over the whole country, sometimes, he nays, int
the very ears with those hunting for him. and
after nearly two years, ot this unhapy life, went
to St. Paul, Minnesota. Worn out with dreatd, he
went to the Marshal of the Territory and told
his casee, and naked to be arrested. The officer
remonstrated; told him he had no authority to
make an arrest ; that the affir was forgotten,
and it he initended to make his remorse good for
anything, he had better set to work and earn
money he had criminally got and spent, and pay
the bank and those he had swindled: that he
would be better every where than goitng to the
penitentiary. But Howard was resolute to be
arrested. The officeer wroteito this city, and a
requisition was procured, upon which he was
brought here ont Tuesday afternoon. We be
