The New Church Organ.
BY WILLIAM M. CARLETON.
They've got a bran new organ, Sue,
For all their fuss and search;
They've done just as they said they'd do,
And fetched it into "church.
They're bound the critter shall be seen,
And on the preacher's right
They've hoisted their new machine \ ,
In everybody's eight.
They've got a chorister and choir,
Agin MY voice and vote ; , ; -
For it was never my desire
To praise the Lord by note. w
I've beenji sister good an' true
For five and thirty years ;
I've done what seemed my part to do,
An' prayed my duty clear;
I've sungtho hymns both slow arid quick,
Just as the preacher read, * 1
And twice, when Deacon Tubbs.was sick,.
I took tho fork an* led !
And now their bold, new-fangled ways |
Is cumin' all about;
And I, right in my latter days,
Am fairly crowded out !
To-day the*preacher, goqd old dear,
With tears all in his eyes,
Read--'I can read my title clear
To mansions in the skies'
I al'ays liked that blessed hymn
I s'pose I al'ays will ;
It somehow gratifies MY whim,
In good old Ortonville ; '
But.when that choir got up to sing, %
I couldn't catch a word ;
They sung the most dog-gondest thing
A body ever heard !
Some worldly chaps was standin' near,
An' when I seed them grin,
I bid farewell to every fear,
And boldly waded in.
I thought I'd chase their tune along,
An' tried with all my might ;
But though my voice is good an' strong,
I-cOuldn't steer it right ;
When they w as high; then I was low, '/
An' also contrawise ; . . .
A?d I too fest, or they too slow,
To 'mansions in the skies J :
An' after every verse, you' know,
They played a little tune ;
I didn't understand,.an' HO -. . .
I startcd m-too soon. ' .
I pitched itprctty raiddlin' higb,
I fetched a lusty tone, i .. .
But oh, alas ! I found that I
Was singing thoro alouo !. .
They laughed alittlo, I am told,
But I had done my best;
And not a wave oj trouble rolled
Across my peaceful breast.
And sister Brown-I could but look
She sits right front of me ;
She never was no singiu' book,
An' nevcr-meant to be;
But tlien she al'ays tried to do
The best she could, she .said,
She understood the time, right through,
An' kep' it, with her hoad ;
But when she tried this.moinin', oh,
I had to laugh, or cough !
It kep' her head a bobbin' so,
It e'en a'most came oli'!
Ah ! Beacon Tubbs-he all broke down'
Asono might well suppose ; ,
Fie took one look at sister Brown,
And meekly scratched his nose.
He looked his hymn book thro' an' thro'
And laid it on the scat,
And then a pensive sigh lie drew,
And looked completely boat.
An' when thev took another bout,
He didn't even risc ;
But drawed his red bandanucr out,
An' wiped his-weepin' ej-es.
I've been a sister, good an' true,
F'jr live an' thirty year ;
I've done what secmed-m}' part to do,
An' prayed my duty clear;
But death will stop my voice, I know,
For he is on my track ; .
And some day I to church will go,
And never .moro come back.
And when the. folks get up to sing
Whene'er that time shall bc
I do not want no patent thing .
A squeal in' over mo.
A BROTHER'S REVENGE.
A correspondent of the Philadel
phia Press writes ' the history of a
tragedy on the plains in the far west :
Riding out above Julesberg, a rock
was pointed ont to me, at the foot of
which had been enacted a tragedy,
the mere recital of which made my
blood* run cold. The place was in a
deep canon, surrounded by high bluffs,
ati>l there was a loneliness and silence
in the frowning rocks that oppressed
every visitor, and made them glad to
hasten their departure from "the
gloomy dell. Many years ago two
young men came from the east and,
ascending the Missouri, engaged in
the f?r business. They were bosom
friends, and prospered in all their
undertakings ; mon?y flowed into
their coffers and they became weal
thy ; ?till they stayed- in the west
that had been so generous to" them,
and finally determined to make it
their permanent home. * .One of the
young men had a fair sister, who
lived at St, Louis, where the parties
went annually to sell their furs and
divide the profits of their business.
The girl, infatuated by the tales of
adventure, told her by her brother,
longed to visit the great west, and
begged, eo hard that her brother finale
ly consented. Fora whole year she
lived at the hunter's ranche on the
head waters of the Missouri, and
when the'time'eame for the partners
to go down the river to sell their furs,
the brother was sick and could not
go. The girl was loth to leave her
brother, but he "urged her to go home
and see their mother, saying he would
soon be well and follow -after her
Introsting hfs darling to his friend
and partner, the two * set out in a
Mackinaw boat, well manned and
provided with every ^comfort. .The
brother grew woree and the summer
wore away before -he was able to
travel. . -
In thc meantime the partner re?
-turned, bringing him news from home
and a division of the annual profits,
. which were larger than ever before.
I The brother, pleased with the manner
in which their business ha
managed, readily yielded to t
gestion of hiV partner to d<
visit home, devote the winter t<
operations, and go down in th?
with furs. All went well unt
winter, when the brother rec
letter from hie home that
crazed him. The letter ?was fr

stantial account of the seducti
ruin ef his beloved Nina by hi
ner. The girl had confessed

drei, and so devised apian of re
that no Indian could have ou

on with his business as usual,
every? day met his partner .o:

was that if they found all ? s re

Be good to your mother. If any
one must wait for a favor, or for neces
sary comforts, do not let it be her,- (or
she will not be with you many years.
When she is dead and gone, it will
be an increasing sorrow if'you have
neglected to give her these little
loving attentions which would h.ave
smoothed her pathway and' cheered
her last days.

What it ia to be a Widow- "
"I think it must be a jolly thing to
be a young widow !" I*, heard this
remark thc other day, in a group of
laughing girls. I think I remember
saying such a thing myself in my
girlish times. Do you know, girls,
what it is to be a widow? It is to be
ten times more open to comment and
criticism than any demoiselle could
?possibly be. It is to have men to
gaze as you pass, first at your black
dress and. then at your widow's cap,
until your sensitive nerves quiver un
der the infliction. It is.to have one
ill-natured person, say, "I wonder
how long she will wait . before she
marries again ?" and another answer,
" Until she gets a good chane?, I sup
pose." It is now and th?n to meet
the glance of real sympathy, gener
ally from the poorest and humblest
woman that you can meet, and feel
your eyes fill at the token, so ra e, it
is, alas I unlooked for. It is tu have
your dear fashionable*friends console
you, after the "following fashion : "Oh
well ! it is a dreadful loss. We knew
you'd feel it, dear," and in the.next
breath, " You will be sure to marry
again, and your widow's cap. is very1
becoming to you." But it is more
than this to be a widow. It is to
miss the strong arms* you have leaned
upon, the true faifh you knew could
never fail you, though all $e world
might forsake you. It is to miss the
dear voice that uttered your name
with a tenderness that none other
could give it. It is to hear no more
the well known footsteps that you
flew so gladly once to meet. .To see
no more the face that to your ador
ing eyes seemed as the face *of the
angels of God'. To feel no more the
twining arms that folded you so lov
ingly ;_ the dear eye's that, looking in
to your own, said plainly, whatever
it might seem to others, yours was
the fairest face earth held for him
It is to fight with a mighty sorrow as
a man fights with the waves that over
whelm him,, and. to hold it -at. arm
length for a while, only to have---in
the hours of loneliness and weakness
-the torrent roll' over you, whil
poor storm riven dove-^-you se? no
man everappearrto j&mifw?r s*d
he must sink into, oblivion-that we
are one generati in of 'millions. Yet
such is the tact. Time &nd progress:
have through countless ages come
inarching hand in hand, the one des
troying, the other building up. They
aeem to create little or no commotion,
ind the work of destruction is a easily
iccomplished as a child- tearing to
pieces a rose. Yet such is the fact.
A hundred years hence, and much'
ihat we now see around us will h tve
passed away. It is but a repetition
)f life story ; we are born, we die
md hence we will grieve over these j (
venerable piles, finding the common
ev?l of. their prototypes in nature,
We all within our graves shall sleep, , i
A hundred years to come ;
No living soul for us shall "weep; . .' "p
A hundred years to como ;
But other merl our land will till,
And jther men our streets wjji fill,
And other birds shall sing as gay, <
As bright the sunshine as to-day.

WHAT BRIGHAM SAID.-The Mor
mons tell a good' story of Brigham
Yoting. Among "the. applicants for
the special privilege of taking a second j
wife, there came, one day, a brother
,of unusually doubtful character, a
drunkard and a rascal .generally,
when something like the ' following
dialogue ensued: "So. .you want,
another wife, do you?" "Yes, if you
please, Brother. Brigham." " WeUr
the short of the matter is, that you
can't have one." " Why can'fcl have
one as weil aa the other saints?"- "So
you want to know the whole story,
do you ?" . " Yes ; I? should, like^o
know why I can't have more, t^an'ose.

Outrageous taxes j noosed upon the
people of . Arkansas, ?ta time when
they had not recovered itum the im

the forfeiture of the enormous quan-'
tity of about three million acres ?f
land, or one-seventh part of.thewhoie?;
State, through the *noa-payment of
taxes. During the"past few - weeks r
the State '?uditor:has been engaged" .
in selling these land6. - Only about
