TIE MEM&RIrES OF TIlE
We may shred the moss-veIl from the rose,
The blossom from the spray;
The bloom that pearls the luscious'grape
A touch will brush away;
The vine may loosen from the tree
Which once it clung so fast;
But the heart will keep its memories
Till life itself be past.
The gold must die from the sunset skies.
The purple from fair hills;
The foam flowers fade from waves,
Drought hush the babbling rills;
The earth grows cold and passionless
'Neath Winter's bitter blast;
But the heart will keep its memories
Till life itself be past.
The flush will fade from cheek and brow,
And the sweet smile wane and die;
The freshness leave the coral lips,
Tears dim the brightest eye;
Youth, beauty, hope and happiness,
And love may die at last;
But the heart will keep its memories
Till life itself be past.

Sentence of Robert L. Case-Savings Banks
and Insurance Companies-Remarkable
Suicides-Baby Show, &c.
As a first-class sensation " e
have had nothing equal to the sen
tencing of Robert L. Case, for a
number of weeks. Up to the very
last moment of the argument on
the motion for a now trial almost
everybody appeared to think that
something would intervene that
would save the accused from the
from the penalty of his offense;
the wealth, and power, and in
fluence that surrounded him seem
ed more than a match for the
ate-n majesty of the law; but
when Judge Davis had finished
his opening remarks it was evi
dent to the prisoner and his
friends that they were leaning
on a broken reed, and the tears
fell thick and fast from the pris
oner, his wife, and his daughters,
as the judge pronounced the sen
tence which consigns him to
State's prison for five years. And
so ends the most remarkable per
jury case over tried in America.
An old man, rich. honored, re
spected, having almost completed
the allotted term of man, three
score and ten, a leader in church,
a superintendent in Sunday-school,
will in all human probability end
his life in State's prison. It is a
sad ending to such a life, but a
terrible warning to those who
have been tampering with the
sacredness of an oath. The sen
tence has produced a general flut
ter in life insurance circles, presi
dents and secretaries are setting
their households in order and are
looking anxiously in to each othber's
faces and are asking who will be
Now for the savings banks;
forty-three savings banks have
failed in the United States in the
last year carrying down in their
ruin over thirty millions of dol
lars; this money represents the
savings of several thousand de
positors, in sums from one dollar
up to five thousand, and most of
it the result of hard labor and
pinching economy. Respectable
robbers living in splendid houses,
with retinues of servants, yachts,
and country houses; men who
have spent their summers at Sara
toga, Newport, and Long Branch,
who have held their heads high,
and who have dictated our finan
cial policy, it is men of this class
who are now found to be the mor,t
flagran t of perjurers and the mean
est of all petty robbers.
T wo notable cases occurred some
time ago in the city of Brooklyn,
one was president of one of the
best banks in the city, no rman
stood higher in the community
than this bank president, he was
a man of great reputed wealth, of
large charity, living in princely
style, but not at all beyond his
reputed means; churches, Sunday
schools and benevolent associa
tions were his especial care and
be figured largely on the subscrip
tion lists of home and foreign
missions. One morning an acci
dent occurred on the Long Island
Road ; he was killed, and this
paragon was discovered to be a
forger and.a thief which the acci
dental collision of a railroad train
ad saved from weariug the striped
at of a convict.
Anther bank president in the
same city 'wa- a man universally
respected and loved, a gentleman
of pleasant manners. of liberal and
generous hospitality. His in tegrity
was never suspected ; but after a
long life of fraud and deceit, of
deception so cleverly carried out
that hischaracter as abanker and a
Christian was held up as a model
and a uide, the meshes began t3
close around him; then came one
of the most desperate struggles
ever endured by mortal man ; un
der a calm and placid exterior
burned a volcano which was hour
ly eating at his heart-no sign,
no token appeared upon the sur
face, but day after day, and month
after month, the terrible battle
went on till the grave lost its
terror and death itself seemed
like a boon. One pleasant sum
mer afternoon while the bathers
at Coney Island were disporting
themselves in the surf, and thou
sands of people were enjoying the
ocean breeze along the beach,
the cry was raised that a man was
drowning; with desperate ener
gy he dashed into the break
ers which time after time swept
him back toward the shore, he
fought the waves with the mad
ness of a maniac, and at last
the undertow caught him and
drew him out to sea. Next
morning just as the sun was
rising beautiful and clear, the sea
gave up its dead, and there on the
white sand lay all that was mor
tal of the proud bank president,
who the next day was buried in a
suicide's grave. The entire com
munity was shocked at the ter
r1ble revelations of his life, and the
miserable manner of his death, and
examples like these joined with
those of the week just past, and
still to be strengthened.by a num
ber of trials to come will make
these hypocrites realize in time
that the way of the transgressor
We are now going to have an
overhaul of our savings banks.
There are plenty of small concerns
in towns and villages conducted
after the manner of a close corpo
ration, where a few old fogies with
sanctimonious titles have absorbed
the savings of an entire commun
ity, and as long as they pay their
five per cent. the depositors con
sider it safe ; in a multitude of in
stances if they were to call for
their principal the answer would
be that of Jim Fisk to the Con
gressional committee-"It's gone
where the woodbine twineth."
On Saturday last the treasurer
of the New Rochelle Savings
Bank came into one of our city
papers and entered a savage re
monstrance at some doubts which
that paper had cast upon its sol
vency ; the paper immediately
published a retraction, and that
night the treasurer showed the
United States the full front of his
back, and left the ruined deposi
tors of the bank to whistle for his
return. We have in our State's
prisons now seven bank cashiers,
three bank presidents, two pres
idents of insurance companies, and
before we get through with this
savings bank and insurance busi
ness we expect to have enough to
make a respectable brigade. The
poor, hard-working, laboring class.
es must hive some place where
their little savings shall be per
fectly secure-where the widow
may put her mite and the orphan
trust his patrimony ; this safeguard
must* be secured to them at any
cost, though it shall land in the
struggle every b anking and in
surance president in the United
States within the walls of aState's
A number of desperate .affrays
have marred our week of than ks
giving, among whbich are included
the Bottle-alley and-.Baxter-street
murders. The knife and pistol
are now getting to be the favorite
arbiters of all disputes. In the
Bottle-alley murder the victim
was an old scissors-grinder, whose
ead was nearly severed from his
body by the son of his mistress, a
boy about seventeen years old.
Thbe locality is the vilest in New
York, in the immediate vicinity
of the Five Points, of wbich I
wrote a couple of weeks ago.
Our condition may fairly be es
timated when you learn that a
bank safe is blown open in the
middle of the day on one of our
most public thoroughfares, and
thousands of dollars' worth of vel
vets and cloths are carried off
from one ofour public store-houses
right under tho noses of the po
lice. Our police captains are now
undergoing an investigation, and
it is rumored that some of them
have been infinitely more ser
viceable to the thieves than they
have to the community.
One portion of our city has for
years been infested with houses
of the most disreputable class.
It is one of the most public
thorougfares in the city. In
these vile dens are assembled the
very worst class of degraded wo
men, and yet there is not a police
captain in New York who knows
of~ their existence. They wave
their handkerchiefs at passers-by;
they lure the unwvary from the
streets. Yet our police never see
it, for they are in the pay of these
miserable wretches, taking the
soiled wages of sin as the pricc
of public.duty. One of our School
Conmissioners, shocked that chil
dren passing to and from school
should have this infamy constantly
blazoned before them, entered a
police commissioners. They lis
tened to his complaint, prom
ised to look into it, and there
the matter ended, and the evil
still goes on. Libby O'Brien,
the girl sneak-thief, whose his
tory I gave you a short time
ago, has escaped from the Catholic
Protectory, to which she had been
committed. She told the officer
who carried her up that she did
not intend to stay there long, and
the sequel shows that she is a girl
'of her word. Several of our
Jewish congregations celebrated
Thanksgiving, a concession seldom
paid to any Christian observance.
At the present time we are re
veling in the delights of a baby
show. You ought to come and
see it. Undoubtedly you have
babies in your neighborhood, but
you never appreciate baby as baby
desires to be appreciated till you
get five or six hundred of them
together. When they first talked
of opening this show, the projec
tors were anxious to find some ap
propriate motto to hang up over
the door. Jenkins, who does the
pretty for the New York Sun, sent
in "What is home without a ba
by ?"-the fashionable feuiletonist
of the Herald sent up "Suffer lit
tle children to come unto me,"
&c. He explained in a note that
he did not claim it as original, but
that he had read it in a book
somewhere, though he could not
exactly recollect its name. Broad
brim sent in "Look out for
squalls," which was indignantly
rejected, one of the female mem
bers of the committee throwing a
boot-jack after my messenger,
which he just escaped by dodging
behind a stoop. You never saw
such lots of babies. The first
three days the weather was mis
erable, but it made no difference
with the baby-show, thousands
and thousands braved the mud
and the storm to see the blessed
babies, little pugs with noses like
immense strawberries, and eyes
like peeled onions, were labeled
"little darling," "our pet," "mo
ther's joy," etc.' One traby had a
wart on the end of its nose, and
the proud mother declared that
there wasn't another baby in the
show that had as nice a wart in
the same place. Another little
darling had a pair of ears like an
Irish setter, and the smiling dad
dy declared "dot dem vas de pig
gest ears vot no papy haf got in
der show." There were fat ba
bies, and lean babies, tall and
short, and babies of every imagi
nable color. You could find them
singly and in pairs, or in triplets;
of the last-named figure there
were two sets. One man' had
promised a quartette, but failed to
come to time, and, all things con
sidered, it is just about as well,
for such an example in a well
regulated community is exceed
ingly demoralizing. American
mothers are scarce in the exhi
bition, Irish and German largely
predominating. Our bachelors are
now confirmed in the belief that
matrimony.is not an .unmixed
blessing. The perfume of the ball
is not calculated to make a person
dream of the attar of roses.

A LoNG-WD1ED SIcx MM.-At
Toledo, Ohio, Judge West and
Gen. George A. Sheridan were ap
pointed to speak together.
It was one of Judge West's bad
nights. He was not feeling strong,
and as Sheridan was a rattling
speaker, it was the determination
to give the night to him. The
chairman of the meeting therefore,
according to understanding, opened
by stating that Judge West was
"feeble," and could occupy but a
The Judge opened at five min
utes before 8, and became so ab
sorbed with the subject he had in
view, that he knew nothing of the
fhight of time, and closed with a
dazzling peroration at nine minutes
after 11 o'clock-occupying only
three hours and sixteen minutes.
Sheridan came forward and said
that he was "somewhat feeble"
himself, but he did not think they
required to hear from more than
one sickly man in one evening.
The audience roared themselves
out of the hail.
The pleasures of the world are
deceitful; they promise more than
they give. They trouble us in
seeking them ; they do not satisfy
us when possessing them, and they
make us despair in losing them.

We were much impressed lately
by the orderly behavior of a large
family of children particularly at
the table. We spoke of it to our
host, and he pointed to a paper
pinned on the wall, on which was
written some excellent rules. He
said he gave each child who obeyed
the rules a reward at the end of
every month. We begged a copy
for the benefit of our readers.
They were called "Rules and Regu
lations for Parents' Paradise :"
1. Shut every door after you
without slamming it.
2. Never stamp, jump or run in
3. Never call to persons up
stairs, or in the next room. If you
wish to speak to them, go quietly
where they are.
4. Always speak kindly and po
litely to the servants if you would
have them do the same to you.
5. When told to do, or not to,
a thing by either parent, never ask
why you should or should not do
6. Tell of your own faults, not
those of your brothers or sisters.
7. Carefully clean the mud or
snow off your boots and shoes be
fore entering the house.
8. Be prompt at every meal
9. Never sit down at the table
or in the parlor with dirty hands
or tumbled hair.
10. Never interrupt any conver
sation, but wait patiently until it is
your turn to speak.
11. Never reserve your good
manners for company, but be equal
ly polite at home and abroad.,
12. Let your first, last and best
confidante be your mother.
