When I Was Young.
Ono morning, as I chanced to pass
Close by u cottage) ga'O,
An aged matron iu tho shade,
Sat talking to her Kate.
Tho frost of age was ou her brow,
And garrulous her tonguo,
As sho compared tho doings now
With thoso wheu sho was young.
When I was younz, young gals ?ero meek,
And looked round kinder shy.
And when they were empelled to speak,
They did so modestly !
Thcv staid at hom? aird di.i. the work,
Made Indien br.- . ' and wheaton,
AndTonly went to Sabbuih school,
And sometimes to night meeting.
Young children wore obedient then,
And had no saucy uirs
They minded what their mothers said,
And learned to say their prayers.
But now-a-days they know enough
Before tiny know their letters,
And young ones that can scarcely talk
Will contradict their betters. .
Young ladies now go ilirtin? round,
And looking out for beaur,
A"nd scarcely one in ten is found
Who makes or mends her clothes.
When I was young, if a merchant failed,
He shut up house and hali,
And nerer ventured out till night,
If he ventured out at all.
His wife sold her chiua plates,
His boy&camo home from collegs,
nis gals they learned to cook and bake,
And wash and such like knowledge.
But now-a-days, when a merchant fails,
They say ho makes a penny,
His wife don't have a guwn the loss,
And his daughters just as maoy ;
He rides his horse, he drives his gig,
He drinks the choicest wine,
His wife goes to thc opera,
And ho asks folks to dine.
When I was young, crime Was crime
It had no other name
And when 'twas proved against a man
He had to bear the blame;
They called the man that stole, a " thief,"
And wasted no find feeling:
What's now called " petty larceny,"
Ia my day was called " stealing."
They did not make a reprobate
The theme of song and story,
As if thc blood)?r w is his deed,
The brighter was his glory.
And when a murder was dono.
Could they the murderer find,
They hung him as they would a crow
A torror to his kind.
But now-n days, it seems to me,
Whenever blood is spilt,
Tho murderer has our sympathy,
Proportioned to his guilt.
And when the law has proved a man
Tuabe a second Cain,
A dozen jurors will be found
To bring him in insane.
Don't Beiieie lt.
A Western correspondent tells of a
young man from oue of the rural districts
who got married in the morning, and
touk the train for Cincinnati. After see
ing ail the sights during the day and vis
iting thc opera at night, the happy pair
returned to the hotel, and the bride re
tired to her room. Late in the night the
boot black discovered the raw youth sit
ting in the hall, near the door of his wife's
room. Ile inquired fur the c:erk of the
hotel. We give what followed, verbatim,
with the remark that we don't believe a
word of it :
kl Couldn't you make me a bed in the
parlor?" cried the disconsolate individual.
" In the parlor ?" echoed the clerk, ?. I'm
" Well, I'd like to have one spread
4; Why don't you go into your own
room?" asked the clerk.
': I don't like to," said the blushing
" Why, what's thc matter ?" continued
the clerk. " Kas your wife turned you
0 ?t of your room?"
No," said he, drawling. " but you see
1 havn't never been married before, and
KO I don't like to go in, particularly in a
" Oh ! go right in," said the clerk :
"she won't think it wrong."
Here the door of the room opened
about an inch, and through the aperture
came a voice, coaxingly, saying
" Do come in, John, I won't hurt you.
I know'd they think strange of yer stand
ing out there. Come in now, won't yer?
I've blowed out the gas and it's all dark
The odor of tne room assured the clerk
that she had, indeed, " blowed out the
gas," so, pushing open the door, he stop
ped the flow, raised the window, and re
turned to the hall to persuade the verdant
husband lo retire with his wife. All ar
gument were fruitless, however, and he
was compelled to assign thc simple in
dividual a separate room from that his
wife wEo in that night.
BIG SWINDLING OPERATION.-The Now
York papers contain the details, which
have just come to light, of a gold-swind
ling operation in May, 1SG5, by which a
broker, named John Ross,, fraudulently
obtained $600,000 in gold from various
New York-bankers. Thc money was ob
tained by gold certificates, apparently
signed by the officers of the Continental
Bank. Ross escaped with his booty in a
vessel named the Dakota, which was kept
in readiness fer the purpose of carrying
him away. He is now presumed to be
in Brazil, where he is safe from capture
by United States officials, there being no
extradition treaty between the two coun
tries. Several suits have grown out of
the case, two frras sueing the Continental
Bank for thc suma named on the gold
certificates, and claiming that the signa
tures are genuine. This swindle, although
for an enormous sum, causes but little
comment-the sountry evidently having
become accustomed to this sort of thing.
DISLOYALTY.-The Register, at New
Haven, Connecticut, is growing disloyal.
It says :
The times are growing harder-work
shops are closing-merchants are having
little to do, but pore over their " bills re
ceivable"-and hundreds of lusty me
chanics are walking the streets because
they have nothing better to do. All this
while, Congress is doing nothing but in
venting devilish modes of torturing the
Southern people, who desire nothing but
peace and prosperity in thc old Union ;
anxious to open trade with the other States,
and set the factory wheels in motion Was
ever a people cursed with such misrepre
sentatives;.? They must be overthrown
at the ballot box, or the Republic is lost !
IMPEACHMENT CHANCES.-The Washing
ton correspondent of thc Baltimore Sun
The impeachment subject was brought
up in the House to-day by Mr. Ashley,
who used such disgraceful language to
wards thc President that Speaker Colfax
was twice compelled to call him to order.
Gen. Butler followed him in a similar
strain. The speeches of James Brooks
and Fernando Wood were listened to
with much attention on the Republican
side, but the eloquent efforts made by
these defenders of the Constitution will
not avail to stop the tide. Thaddeus
Stevens remarked in private conversation
to day, that Presieent Johnson, or An
drew Johnson, ns he calli d him, would
Wt be in the White House on the first of
June. According to the caucus record
last night, the impeachment question will j
have eight/ votes to commence with. j
THE TARIFF ON WOOL:-The bill rais
ing the tariff on wool, which was signed
by the President on Monday, divides the
subject into three cinsses-clothing wools,
common wools and carpet wools. Thc
duty on the first class, upon wools valued
at 32 cents per pound, is 10 cents per
pound, and ll per cent, ad valorem ; when
valued above 32 cents, 12 cents specific,
and 10 per cent, ad valorem duty. The
same rate? are fixed f>*r wools of the sec
ond class, and on'those of the third, 3
cents per pound on wool valued nt 12
cm-, and on those exceeding 12 cents,
??.er pound. Jt is provided that washed
wools shall pay double duty. On woolen
cloths, shawls, etc., 50 cents per pound,
.md 35 per cent, ?ci valorem are levied ;
on blankets, flannels, etc., from 20 to 40
cents per pound, according to thc grade
on bunting, 20 cents per square yard,
and 35 per cent, ad valorem; on dress
goods, G cents per yard, and 35 per cent.
ad valorem; on clothing ready made, 50
cents per pound, and 40 per cent, ad valo
rem ; 50 cents per pound, and 50 per
cent, ad valorem are imposed on webbings,
bolting, etc. The duties on carpets are
50 per cent, ad valorem on Anbusson, on
Brussels 44 cents per square yard, and
35 per c?nt. ad volorem, and on other
kinds in proportion.
PAVING LIKE A SINNER.-Several years
ago, in North Carolina, where it is not
customary for the tavern keepers to charge
the ministers anything for lodging and
refreshments, a preacher presumingly
stopped a; a tavern one evening, made
himself comfortable during the night, and
in the morning entered the stage without
offering pay for his accommodations. The
landlord soon came running up to the
stage, and said :
" There is some one who has not set
tled his bill."
The passengers .all said they had, but
the preacher, who said he understood
that lie never charged ministers anything.
" What ! you a minister of the gospel
-a man of God!" cried the innkeeper
"you came to my bouse last night; you
<at down at the table without a blessing ;
I lit you up to your room, and you went
to bed without praying to your Maker
(for I stood there until you retired;) you
rose and washed without prayer, ate your
breakfast without saying grace, and as
you cime to my house like a sinner, and
oat and drank like a sinner, you have
got to pay like a sint er !"
-? -?- ? -
SETTING FIRE TO WOODS.-We have
observed in various directions from this
point the appearance in the horizon of
large conflagrations, in which much fen
cing and other property have been des
troyed. This is a distressing matter to
the sufferers, especially nt this season of
the year. Surely there is distress enough
in our country without these fires, which
generally -occur from carelessness or want
of due caution. For the information of
our readers we publish the following Act
of the Legislature on this subject:
" No person shall put fire to the woods,
nor cause the same to be done, nor be
assisted in any act leading to the confla
gration of any forest, fieids or marshes ;
and if any person sh?.ll wilfully or negli
gently set fire to any woods, or burn any
??rass. brush, or combustible material, so
as to set the woods on lire, he shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor, and on convic
tion shall bc liable to the action of any
person injured thereby. But no person
shall be prevented from firing the grass
cr herbage within his own bounds, so that
he do not stifler the fire to spread to the
lands of his neighbor."
We are told there is a case how pend
ing in our Court on this subject.-Spar
-* ? ?--.
USED TO IT.-There was a fire at Fair
fax Court House, Va., week before last,
.vhieh burned down five houses, lt was
successfully fought, in the absence of en
gines, with snow. A good s!ory is told
of a very old gentleman, a farmer of thc
neighborhood, who came in after thc lire
had died away and asked the first man
whom he met-" Are they gone?" *' Who
gone ?" " Why, thc Yankees. I sec they've
been in again and burnt something."
