We have received from Messrs. Brain

Ohio, a copy of I-The Peart," a charm
log little volume of "Song<, hymns,
chants, anthems and concert pieces," for
the Sabbath Schoo!, by J. M. Kieffer.
As we glance thro-agh this beautiful col
lection, we find by far the greater por
tion new to us, and from which we se
lect at random the heads of the -follnw
ing pieces, the musical rhythm of many
of which is touching : "Abide with us,"
recitation and song. The recitation to I
be read by the superintendent or recited
by the scholars-singly or as a class,
and the song sung by all. "Shepherd of
Tender Youth." (The oldest Christian
hymn.) In Paed, Liber III, of Clement
of Alexandria, is given, in Greek, the
most ancient hymn of the Primitive
Church. It is there (150 years after the
Apostles,) asserted to be of much earlier 1
origmn. It may have been. sung by the
"beloved deciple" before he ascended to
his reward. "Ah thi-; life, his but a
Tapor;" "Beautiful Mansions ;" "Beauti -

Sani Dickerson, colored, known to1
fame as a major in the State militia, has
recently got himself into tro'uble, and v
now lies in the Toombs of New York, on
chargo of theft. First he got into bad
company, that of carpet-baigger Wil!ard
A. Ilussey, from M.isachusetts, withr
*whom he crossed the pond from Char
leston to New York. Sam's intention
was to have delirered a course of lec
tures to his colored brethren North, but s
having relieved llossey of his carpet- t.
hag contamning valuables, his present I
hope is a deliverance from prison, when
be will no doubt return to a more con
genial latitude. 'rho New York Sun
gives an amusing description of their ar
rival at Gotham, and how both gentle-r
men brought up standing at a har-room, e
and being joi'e-d by an Eaglishmnan, t
called for drin-ks, IIussey first asking the C
bar-keeper if hi.s color-ca Fervant would :
be permitted to take one. F.:irision
granted, Sam called for S. O. P. B:undy',
Hlussey for gin and umliasses, and the
Englishman for '-alf and 'aif. It wais a
sweet trio, and they continued to drink,
until the gin and maolasses took effect on s
. the carpet-bagger, and returning to where
he had left his valuable bag; Mr. IIussey,t
overcome by the vite mixture, fell asleep.
Ta the meantime his carpet-b::g was car
iied oir andl Sam findts himself in limbo
aceused of the theft. In justice to Sam:
we state that he secrns the foul accusa
tion, and pleads innocec:e. Poir S-m,

off drew his pistol and made the assault for
which he was arrested. We do not vouch

Hlerndon, who was about being placed in
confinement, charged with rape on the per
son of a negro girl, thirteen years of age, the
daughter of Aif. Wilson, living at Helena.
iIe was at once pursued by the marshal< and
constables, and several shots were fired at
him as lie fled, one of witich struck him in
the head and killed him. The offence charged,
and of which lie had been tried before jus
tie Long (colored) and found guilty, was
committed under aggravating eircumstances,
he having threatened the girl both with
knife, drawing it across her throat twice,
and with pistol, if she dared to resist. It is

had been guilty of a similar offence in Union,
