The' following poem was written by jameB Hei
d?rwick, a Scottish poet but little known in th
country. Who, that ever lost a brother or a si
ter, could read these lines without a falter to tl
voice of tear in the eye ? ' .
They toll mc first and carly levo
Outlives all other dreams ;
But the memory of the first great grief
To me more lasting seems.
The grief that marks our dawning youth
To. memory ever clings,
And o'er the path of future years
A lengthened aaadow flings.
Oh : oft my mind recalls tho hour
When to my father's homo
Death came an uninvited guest
From, bis dwelling in the tomb.
Thad.not seen his face-before
I shuddered at the sight ;
And I shudder yet to think upon
The anguish of that nigh t ! j
A youthful brow and ruddy cheek
Became all cold and wan,
An eye grew* dim in which tho light
Of radiant fancy shono ;
Cold was the cheek andeold tho brow,
Thc eye was fixed and dim ;
And there I moaac i a brother doad,
Who would have died for him 1
I know not if'twas summer then,
I know not ii 'twas spring ;
But if the birds sang iu the trees
I did not hear them sing;
If flowers came forth to dock tho oarth
Their bloom I did not soe ;
I looked upon ono withered dower,
And none oise bloomed for mo !
A sad and silent timo it was
Within the house of-woe ;
All eyos wore dim and overoaat,
And every voice was low.
And from each cheek at internals
Tiie blood appeared to start,
As if recalled in sudden baste
To aid tho sinking heart 1
Softly wo trod, as if afraid,
To mar the sleeper's sleep,
And stole last looks of his sud lace
For memory to keep.
Wiih him the agony was o'er
And now tho pain was <-,urs,
As thoughts of bis sweet childhood roso,
Liko odor from dead flowers.
And when at Itxst he was homo afar
From thc world's weary strife,
How oft in thought did.we again
Li vu o'er his little lifo.
Hii every look, his every word,
His very voice's tone,
Cuire back to us Hke'thingi whoso worth
Is only prized when geno!
The grief has past with years away,
And joy has boon n:y lot ;
But one is long remcmlorcd,
And tho other soon forgot.
The sayest hours trip lightly by,
And leave thc t.niiitsst trace,
But thc deep traci: that sorrow wears
No tim? can e'er efface.

It weuld give us great satisfaction, if,' ii
this connection, we could report the resump
tion of the studies in our military acad?mie:
those institutions which have done so much
for the proper discipline and education of oui
young. With thc citadel building, at once
intact and capable^ of thc accommodation o;
the largest number posiible to the school, il
is greatly to be regretted that, during th*
feebleness of the State, in money matters
seme ablo self constituted faculty had not
boldly dashed into the experiment of carry
ing on the institution on their own account
The State would readily bavo accorded the
use of the building for such a purpose, to anj
set of gentlemen having the proper guaran
ties of ability and social position. Snch . s
faculty would have achieved the highesi
success-would have drawn largely upoc
tho'patronage of other States, from tho Po
tomac to the Rio Grande, bad they procured
General Joseph E. Johnson far their Presi

A Chapter on Kissing.
An exchange, who seems to know what he
is saying, gives tho following lecturo on thc
science of kissing :
People will kiss, yetnot oncin ono hundicd
knows how to extract bliss from lovely lips
no more than they know how to make dia
monds ont of charcoal. And yot it is easy,
at least for us ! This little item is not alone
for new beginners, bnt for the many who go
to it like hunting coons or shelling corn.
First know whom yon arc to kiss. Don't
make a mistake, although a mistake may be
good. Don't jump up liko a trout for a liv,
and smack a woman on the nock, on the ear,
or on tb* corner of the forehead', on the end
of the nose, or kneck off her waterfall, or
jerk her bonnet ribuon, inhaste to g*t throogh.
The gentleman should bo a little tho tallest.
He 6uould have a clcau face, a kind eye, a
mouth full of expression iastcad of tobacco.
No noise,, no fuss, no flut'erini" and squir
ming like houk-impaled worms. Ki-.sing dou't
hurl ; it don't require a brass band to nr,kc
it legal. Don't job down on a beautiful
tnoath as if you were epearing for frogs !
Don't grab and yank thc lady as if she was
a struggling colt ! Don't muss her hair,
scratch down her collar, bite her cheek, squiz
rle her rich ribbons, and leave her mussed,
rumpled and mixed ! Dou:l ila vor your kisses
with onions, tobacco, gin*cocktails, lager beer,
brandy, etc. ; for a maudling kiss is worse
than toe itch to a delicate, lovicg, sensible
M Dont kiss* everybody, including nasty lit
tle dogs male or female. Don't sit down to
it; stand up. Need not be . anxious alon:
getting in a crowd. Two persona1 are plenty
to corner and catch a kiss i more pe>.v?r.
spoil the sport. Stand lirai ; it won't hurl
alter you aroused to it. Talco tho. left hand
of the" lady in your right.; let your hat go tn
-any place out of the way; throw the le fi.
hand g^utly ovor the shoulder ol' the lady,
and let the hand-fall down upon the right
side toward the belt. Don't be in a hurry,*
draw hcrgontly, lovingly to t-our heart* ber
head will fall lightly upon your shoulder', and
a hands-mo shoulder strap it-makes I Don't
be in a hurry ; send a little lifo down your
left ann and let it know its business. Her
left hand in. your light; let there be au ex
pression to that, not like the grip of a vice,
ont a gentle clasp, full of electricity, th'iugbt
and respect. Don't be in a hurry ! Her bead
lies careless on your shoulder I You'ar? nearly
heart to heart ! Look down into her half
chwed eyesf Gontiy, yet manfully, press hei
to your bosom I Stand firm, and Providence
will give you strength, for the ordeal !.. Be
brave, brave, but dou't bo in a. hurry. Her
lips are almost open ! Lean lightly forward
with jour head, not the body. Take good
aim ; tho lips meet-the eycB close--the heart
opens-the soul rides thu storm, troubles and
sorrows of lif? (don't bc in a hurry)-heaven'
opens before you-the world shoots from un
der your feet as a meteor ilashCi across tho
ovening sky ( on't be afraid)-the nerves
dance before the just erected altar of love as

-tho heart forgeta its-bitterness, and the ait

General Fisk's Speech at Cincinnati.
"?uly the day before -yesterday, in Lex
ington, thirteen discharged colored soldier*
stood in the streets, in full sight of Henry
Clay's monument, with their bodies lacerated, *
their badi.s bleeding from thecruel lash, their
heads cat to tho scalp, and one or two of
them wikh their eyes put out I and what fbf,
do you suppose*? Simply for going- to their
former masters and asking for their wi vea
and children \ I appealed to the civil au
thorities in their behalf,, but was told that
thero was no lawjn Kentucky, to .help them.
I heard there of a ala ve to be soid on a cer
tain day ;'5I made an arrangement with the
Masler Commissioner to bur. him myself,
as ike last slave to le sold in Kentucky.
"lam here to protect just such men as
those from the cruelty and barbarism of the
'bluegrass region,' and do you think I will
see men who have been in the wac three y?ara
with myself maltreated and butchered^ Ko,
not by any means. .1 wo women were shot
dead by their former master for asking and
tryiug to get their children back, in Ken
tucky, and I fear her Legislature .will ?ot l?o
justice to the negro. They ore good men
enough in every thing but thc negro, and
that stirs up every thing that is bad and bit
ter-in their nature.
" I saw a little white egg, the other day,
called the egg of Pharaoh's serpents.. You
touch it.with c. spark of fire and out come *
a fiame and a serpent that coils around and
hisses in your face- The-people of Kentucky
opposed to freedmen are a doal like those
eggs-very fair to look at, but whe? yon
.touch them with a spark of liberty, oat comes
tho flame of anger and the hissing serpent
' Tito abo.-o is an extract from a speech do- *
livered by General Fisk ih Cincinnati on
Thursday last, and reported in the Cincin
nati Commercial of the 19th instant. The
statements made are clear, distinct and un
equivocal as to persons, time and place, and
well calculated by such distinctness to obtain
credence, especiaily among the peoole of the
'North. Yet every statement is'an unmiti
gated falsehood. We have made inquiriesjof
both black aud whito te ascertain if there
was a single grain of truth on which the
structure of malicious calumny could hate ?
been built. We knew of course that' it was
impossible that there should have been thir
teen lacerated, bleeding and maimed discharg
ed soldiers on the streets ?f Lexington,' where
there was thea a com pan f ef negro soldiers
stationed, without some commotion being'ex*
cited. Our inquiries were devoted to wheth
er there was a single discharged soldier who
had received, riot stripes and wounds, but
any^ill usog? from his former owner. Net
one was known to black or white.
General Fisk made a speech to the colored
population of this place last week, but we\are
assured made nd allusion to soy such barbar
ides. His statements were made in Crojc^n
nati, where there was co one present to con
tradict him, and were intended exclusively
for Northern circulation and effect.*
We have also made inquiries of the Idas
tor Commissioner cohcerniug'the less impor
tant statement as to the sale of thc slave
girl, and foond it equally destitute of truth.
It has too often been the habit of the South
to treat with derision or silent contempt the
gross falsehoods circulated cs to their barbar
ities. In obedience to our duty as a con duc
tor of the press, we denounce the statements
given above ns infamous lies, and we. brand
their author as au infamous liar.

with members of the garrison at Unionvflle

residence. Resisting the demand to deliver
himself up, bc severely wouoded one of- the
detail, aud thereupon received several suota
which proved immediately fatal.
Mr. Fernandez bore a high r?putation-for
