For the Ilerald.
I1ave heard the dirge of sorrow,
And the theme I would endorse,
And my pen would catch the echo
To-the funeral hymn of Momse.
Could my humle quill be guided,
- Or some gentle muse inspire,
Then I'd trace his deeds immortal,
With a true, poetic fire,
For my bosom shares the sadness,
Of the nation's bitter grief,
A-ad I'd add a word consoling
Which may bring a sweet relief,
For if deeds shall be rewarded
When we drop "this mortal coil,"
Then methinks he shar that glory
Which will crown a life of toil.
Surely now his angel-fingers
Sweep the keys with skillful toneh,
But, this may be thought presaMption,
Claiming now for him so much.
For I'm treading paths forbiddEn,
Paths which only angels tread;
Mortals cannot know the future,
Or employments of ti-sded,
But hi name wiH, "down the ages,"
Sound through everyftid& far,
And remotest generations
To his fame will add a star,
Let the solemn tol be sounded
From each spire, by every bell,
Lot the million chanting voices
Give that tearful requiem swell,
Let the engine and the steamer,
On the rail and on the wave,
Haste to tell to al the story,
How that Morse sleeps in his grave!
Let the winged lightning quiver,
As it sounds his funeral knell,
To the farthest verge of nations,
And the mournful message tell,
Let that news; so sad, out-travel
Yonder bla.ing suns of fire,
For "he conquered time and distance"
Through the telegraphic wire,
Let it send its thrill of sorrow
Through the heart of nations far,
Le. the silent bed of ocean
Feel the tremble and the jar,
Let the buried cable sound it
Through the caverns of the deep,
Where the semi-human "mermaids"
In unfatbomed safety sleep,
Let the burden of the message
Flash along like human thought,
Till the far off wilds shall echo
What his mighty brain has wrought,
Speed the-ew a to every hamlet,
Haste the message 'round the world,
Let the minute-guns be fired,
And each vessel-sail be furled,
Let us hang the crape omoarning
Out upon the trembling wire.
While the silent voice of lightning
Speaks in words of living fire,
High on fame's proud wall Is 'gravened
S. F. Morse, In every'clime,
'Twill be sung in after ages
"Down the corridors of time,"
For each year his fame inereases,
As the wires still further swing,
While across the plains it reaches,
Human thought, to send and bring,
He will need no granite column,
With his name emblazoned high,
For each telegraphic pole will
Speak -his name till nations die.
When the monumental marble
Shall have crumbled into dust,
And the iron pillar crumbles
'Neath old time's corroding rust,
Then his deeds will be remembered
By the millions yet to come,
And he told In song and story
Till the human tongue is dumb!

Mr. Greeley's Letter of Acceptance.
The following is the reply of Mar.
Greeley to the letter notifying him o.
his nomination :
"Gentlemen :-I have chosen not to

convention was received in all parts of
our great country, and judge whethei
that work was approved and ratified by
the mass of our fellow-citizens. Their
response has fr om day to day reached mt
through telegrams, letters arnd comments
of journalists independent of the smiles oi
frowns of power.
"The numbdr' and character of thesa

Attentio Tax Paycr.
It may not generally be known that
'by a re%ent act lands sold under execu
tion for taxes canNpt be redermed after
the expiration ofG'etv days, and are
held in fee simple by the purchaser.
With this view we advise those parties
whose lands are advertised, to pay the
tax execution at once, even if the money
has to be borrowed at high per cent.,
and before sale is made. Every day is
only adding to the bill *of costs, with the
prospect of entire loss. We feel it our
duty to give this warning, although at
the last moment, and we hope that all
interested will give heed to it. Read the
list of names advertised in this paper and
act promptly on our suggestion.

J. F. J. C ALD WELL,
Chairman Ex. Committee.
It is scarcely necessary to add aniy
thing to the above notice. Every citi.
zen is acquainted with the situation.
That the call will be responded to we
have no doubt, and that such delegates
will be selected as wili represent us un
derstandingly in the Columbia meeting.
For the first thne in several years, years
of peril and sore trial, has an opportu
nity presented itself 'n which there is:a
hope that some good mnay be accom
pished, and we hope that all true men
are alive to the responsibilities which
rest upon us at this time. That the ac
ion of the Baltimore Convention will
decide in a great measure the future
prospects of this afficted Southern land,
no man of reason doubts. We trust
*at a large share of wisdom may be
possessed by the delegates selected to it.
The issue is a grave one and involves
the interests of the whole country.
Thrilling accounts are given by cor

W% %slin(.ToN, MW 16.
A genith man % ho atter,ded the Cin
einnati Conventior., and w ho had a very
kee conversation- with Seuator Sumner
to day, reports the substance of the in
terview as fuliows: The senator asked
about the personnel of the convention,
and said that lie had heard that it was a
thering of original Republicans, re
tnrakble f.r its high character. ile"poke
particulariv of the tariff plank adopted
by the co:iventitn. That resolution, he
said, was the tnost honest expression on
the siuect tLat has ever een made by
any con ention since he tnt.rcd public
life. It ielgates the whbole nuuestion to
the peotle in Congress distriets, where it
can only be properly considei ed during
the canvass. This course he bel:eved to
be much more oirect and manly T'an
the old cu*tom of declaring for a 'j,di
ciuus twiff," "a tariff '.hat will not
burden the peopl-," "an exact tar;ti,"
and as has been the custom of previous
conventions. On the Cincinnati p!aiferm
there can be no prevaricating, no per
0uading the people f of Penns.l vania
that the Republiean party -< in favor of
Protection, and those of the South that
it is a Free Trade party. In other re
speczs, the Cincinnati platform seemed
to him an able and statesumanlie series
of resolutions. Mr. Sumner declined to
de-flne himself as to his future course,
but said that if the campaign, as now
seemed likAy, resolved itscif into a per
sonal ene between the big letter G and
the little letter Or, with no queslinn of
party principles, the little G would be
hissed out of sight. Horace Greeley, he
I said, is a kindly, true, and Liberal man ;
he will make a President who has de
served the office by a long and national
course of philanthropy and consideration
for all classes of the people. A more un
selfish man does not live. No man can
put his hand upon any act of nepotism or
present taking, or any line of conduct
that has been dictated by a mercenary
I motive. General Grunt has been little
else than personal and selfish in his gov
ernment. Mr. Greeley is well acquainted
with all the issues before the country ;
his magnetic kindness has done as much
I for fraternity and peace between the
difTerent sections of the country as his
vigorous and hearty advocacy of an irn
proved civilization had previously toned
up the public conscience. He had no
fears of Mr. Greelev as President. As to
I bis own position,~ Mr. Sumner said that
he has been always neutral. If the con
test is a personal one, and not a party
one, so that there can be no more charge
of disloyalty to party against those who
support the Cincinnnati movement, he
had no doubt as to the result.
The Supplemental Treaty.
The New York Sun gives the diift of
public sentiment on the subject in the
The supplemental treaty for the set
tlement of the Alabama controversy
really contains nothing but the abandon
ment by the Government of the United
States of its demand for indirect damages.
This abandonment should properly be
the act of the President alone. He made
the demand for these indirect damages
before the tribunal at Geneva without
consulting the Senate, and lhe has the
same power to withdraw it as he had to
make it. There is no need for any sup
plemental treaty, or for going to the
Senate with the subject. In short, the
only purpose of this supplemental treaty
is to relieve General Grant of the re
sponsihility of undoing his own act and
retracting his own indecent blunder by
p ntting upon thme Senate the responsibili
tv of advisinan cosnigtthre
t-action. Asth adeadfriiec
damages was inserted in the treaty with
out any expectation that it would
be allowed by tihe arbitraters, or
that any money would ever be received
on account of it, and as itis no longer
denied that this demand was a mere
piece of pettifogging buncomibe, a sham
and a humbug, so this supplemental
treaty, with the ceremony of its sub.
mission to the Sen-tte, is another piece
of buncomnbe, another sham and humbug.
If the President sees, as he virtually
confesses that he doe.s see, that the ease
which he presented at Gen.eva is bad
and ur.justifiable, why doesn't he with
draw it squarely and manfully, and why
does he attempt to implicate the Senate
in thMarce of this supplemental treaty ?
Close the Free Schools.
The pass to which the Radical friends
of popular education have brought the
State is unmistakably described in the
following letter :

The time for these visitations is left to the
convenience and discretion of the Commis
sions and the Churches.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR EYEs.--"Mind your
eye Primus." used to be a common expres
sin in boyhoo.f days, and it meant that the
enemy's fist must be guarded against. We
thought that enemy the only one to be wary
of then. but since that time we find another
enemy to guard against, and this is poor
glasses. Sight grows weak with years, ad
it is so precious, that the greatest care should
be exercised to preserve it. Inferior glasses
hurt more eyes than age, while good ones
improve the sight, and are a blessing to the
wearer.. We are pleased to say that Capt.
John Speck is the agent for the best specta
cles now made, and the very large and beau
tiful assortment which ho has now on h'and
cannot fail to give general satisfaction. We
l've never seen handsomer styles of eye
glasses before, and for softness and ease to
the eye they are not to be excelled. The
pair now resting on the bridge of' our nose
arc not only charming to look at but delight
ful to look through, and are a present frocm
the Captain, and most highly appreciated.
We advise our friends who use Specks, to
cll on SPECK and inspect his assortment of
Spectacles and Jewelry besides. The specta
cle we expect will be an agreeable one.
LuE' NAvE SOMETING.-We have urged
time and again the need of a fire engine, but
without any visible effect. A park, where
children might gambol on the green sward,
and lovers stroll on pebbled walks, and ma
turer folks stretch under shady trees, has
oeeu agitated, but scarcely a ripple has been
noticed. Gais lights and water works have
been brought to the public attention, but
alas, alas, no response has been made. Good
beef and 'more butchers has also been m:sde
special mention of, with as little success.
Prhaps these things are too expensive, or
the time has not yet come for them, or our
citizens think that were they realized, somc.
thing else would be asked. Some or all of

supported by the public funds should live at

The County .Jail the Grand JTurors are glad
to present in a cleanly condition, with some

This Grand Inquest would further present
the Jury Commissioniers for the illegal draw
ing of the Petit Jurors, as it is entirely owing
to their action that this Court is now unable
to hold its regular Sessions, thus putting the
County to a great deal of useless expense, as
well as calling many of its citizens away
from their homes and business to their great
detriment, especially at this season of the
year. They, therefore, earnestly suggest
that the Solicitor take such action in the
matter as his better wisdom suggests.

for wry faces. the inevitable salts and
senna, rhubarb, or calomel and jalap, must
be administered. The "spring niedicines,"
the youn-sters were told, were to keep
them hale and hearty durring the summer
We all know now that this was a falacy ;
that new vigor, not depletior, is what is
required at the commencement of the sum
mer solstice. As a preparation for the
enervating effects of oppressive summer
weather, a course of Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters is highly expedient. This famous
vegetable preparation has three prominent
properties: It renovates, purifie., and
reulaes all the functions of the body. It
is composed exclusively of pure veget:able
prodctiotns, viz: the essential principle of
Moougbhela Rye, and the most efficacious
tonic and alterative roots, barks, and gums
kown to tmedical botanists. Hlence, it is
an absolut"lv safe medicine, und no tne
t-e of the'Pharmaceopo-a can compare
with it either in purity, or in the variety
of its ob.jects, and its to'nprehensive re
salts. Bappily for muankind, the theory
that it was necessary to prostrate a patient
in order to cure him, is forever exploded,
nd the trtte philosophical doctrine, that
rigor is gne great antagonaist of disease,
tas taken its place. Hostetter's Bitters is
an invigorant,. and hence it is.the proper
medicine for the feeble at this most trying
season of the yenar.
