?The Soul's Flight.
When for eternal worlds we steer,
And seas are calm u.V?l skies are clear,
And faith in lively exctcisfe,
And distant hills of Cuna un rise.
The soul for joy lhcn claps her wings,
And loud her lovely sonnet E.'ogs,
Vain world adieu.
"With cheerful hope her eyes explore
Each landmark on the distant shore,
The trces of life, the pastures green,
The crystal stream, delightful sceue,
Again for. joy she claps her wings,
And loud her lovely sonnet sings, ?
Vain world adieu.
The nearer stills she draws to land
More eager all her powers expand,
With steady helm and free bent sail,
Her anchor drops within the vail,
Again for joy she claps her wings,
And her celestial sonnet sings,
Glory to God.
She meets with thoss who've gone before
On Canaan's high and blessed short;
Friends there each other meet
Around their dear Redeemer's feet,
There their ceaseless hallelujahs sing,
1 am safe at home.
The Harp in Heaven.
Ono of the sweetest recollections of my girl
hood is a beautiful reply my mother once made
me, when my heart was swelling with childish
Iliad just returned from, tho house of a
"wealthy neighbor, who had kindly given mo
tho use of their piano /for a few hours every
day, to gratify my cxtronie love for music.
Our own cottage home looked so plain in con
trast with the one I had just left, aud no piano
within its walls, I laid my head upon the table
and gave vent to my overflowing heart. I felt
grieved, and perhaps a little angry, that we
were u.mbb. to afford the one thing I desired
above all others?a piuuo?and expressed my
feeling to my mother.
Never shall I forget her sweet, gentle tone,
as she simply replied, "Never mind, daughter
if you cannot have a piano on earth, you may
have a harp in heaven." Instantly the whole
current of my feelings was changed. Earthly
things dwindled into insignificance, and the
"harp in heaven," with its golden strings, be
came the object of my desire. I felt reproved
for my repining against the Providence that
placed me in an humble homo, and from that
moment the enjoyment of heaven seemed far to
outweigh all the pleasures of earth. The beau
tiful reply has followed mo all my life, or rather
has gone before me like a bright guiding star
?lifting my thoughts above this transient life,
and opening to my spirit's vision the glorious
scenes in that "1 'iid of life and ligliff" I have
a "piano on earth" now, but its charm is gone.
Its rnusio no longer gladdons my heart as it
onc? did, for the ears that loved best to listen
to its sweet tones arc now enraptured with the
grand harmonies of heaven I" The dear fin
gers that so often touched its keys, now sweep
tho golden harp strings. Oh, that "harp in

of its rich melody 1J

A Quaker Woman's Skk-mox.?My dear
friends, there arc three things that I very much
wonder at. Tho first that children should be
so foolish as to throw stones, clubs and brick
bats into fruit trees to knock down the limit.
If they would let it alone it. falls itself. The sec
ond is that men should go to war and kill each
other. If let alone they would die themscl cs.
The third and last thing I wonder at is that
young men should be so unwise as to go after
young women. If they would stop at home
the young womem would come after them.

The picture was taken, and when produced,
it reminded the girl, as she expressed, " Just

The poor fellow tried to follow the indefinite

One direction followed another but with as
little success. At last, growing impatient and
becoming desperate, she resolved to fry an ex
periment which she considered infallible, and
" I don't keer if there is folks around."'
She enjoined the operator to stand ready at
his camera. She then set her in her fellow's
lap, and throwing her arms around his neck,
managed to cast a shadow of flaxen ringlets as
a screen between the operator and the proceed

cession of amorous sounds, which revealed the
experiment. When the billing and cooing had
lasted a few minutes, the cunning girl, leaped
from Josh's, lap, clapped her hands, aud cried to
the astonished artist:

The State Penitentiary at Columbia.
The work on this important Institution,
says the South Carolinian, has reached that
advanced stage which will render a description
interesting to the public.
Situated at the f??* ,JI Plain-street, the lo
cality U?aU'ts one of no ordinary attraction to
tfie visitor and tourist. ,
Here, an arm of about twelve acres has been
enclosed ami appropriated to the uses of the
Penitentiary; and to-day, resounds with the
stroke of the mechanics, the creak of the der
rick and the industrious hum that art ever
mingles with the voice of nature.
First and foremost, there has been laid a
br >ad and deep foundation of granite, commen
surate with the Strength and magnitude of the
p oposcd building. Upon this already rests
the massive floor of a portion of the first story,
upon which is to he erected the cells immediate
ly required. The side walls ui the latter are
likewise goinu up, and heavy iron i dates which
are to constitute both the ceiling of the first
floor, and the base on which is to he laid the
second, stands by in readiness to enc ose the
future residence of the unfortunate criminals.
Everything is of b oil or stone, and the measure
ment of walls is by feet?not inches. In six
weeks, or two mouths, should the weather con
tinue, there will be accommodations for at least
forty prisoners; ami the work wi.l continue to
progress with the same energy that has murk d
its erection and progress.
Next there is mi tin; place, a storehouse
where are deposited the heavy iron gratings or
doors; the locks, casting, tools, implements,
cement ami tit her articles in demand.
In still another, building, carpenter work is
done; in a third are the blacksmiths; in a
fourth is a supply of coal j and in a fifth is the
office of Major T. 1$. Lee, the Architect and
Engineer, ami his accomplish d assistants.
An evidence of the fine administrative abili
ty of Major Leo, will strike the visitor on en
tering the enclosure. A hundred feet or more
from the gate commences an abrupt, descent
to a narrow, ragged canal ; down this fteeline
runs a railway, seeming!}, at an angle id'about
forty-five degrees up which a distance of forty
live feet are. to he brought at the rate id" one
car-load every four minutes the immense mass
es of granite, which enter into the construction
of the edifice. This stone is brought a distance
of a mile, by means id'peculiarly constructed
canal boats which carry the rail cars. When
loaded, they are brought to the foot of the in
clined railway, a wire rope is attached to the
cars, a water wheel gives the power, they ascend
steadily to the plain above, are then rolled to
the wood yard, where the iron lingers of der
rick, seize and deposit the rough blocks, if ne
cessary, at the feet of the mason.
'fliese canal boats cost forty-live dollars each,
and with four dollars per day for labor, this
simple contrivance saves to the State an outlay
of about twenty that would otherwise be neces
sarily expended in bringing the same amount
from the same, or even more favorable locali
ties, by the ordinary means. As soon as there
are a number of convicts sufficient to work the
granite ruarry that has already been developed
by Major Lee, at the base of this railway, even
this expense will he curtailed, and the rock
be taken directly fruiu its bed to its ?? dressing
Among other practical evidences of ingenui
ty is a lock of peculiar yet simple construction,
contrived by Major Lee. that is calculated to
tiive the convict a greater sense of security than
j is enjoyed by any other member of the com
The dimensions and details of construction
of the Penitentiary are too various to admit of
record in the present article, but it may be
generally Stated that when completed it will be
??Im? handsomest structure in South Carolina, if
not in the on tire South. It will contain ac
commodations for about l''... hundred and fifty
"guests," mule and female; will be live stories
in height; fire and burglar proof; and, witli Its
adjoining workshops and factories, promises to
become a fashionable and hospitable resort for
a certain class of our people. Convict labor
will be employed in the completion of the 1*011
ctcutinry as soon as a sufficient number can be
properly secured, which, as was before stated,
will be completed in the course of a couple of
Effects of IIa hit.?A letter from Paris
of the 22d of .January, says that a body of pens
cuts, from the depth of Siberia, have come to
Paris and put up wooden cabins like those of
their own country, near the Paris Exposition.
"They suffer horribly from the mildness of our
climate. The other day, when it was freezing
hard enough to split rocks, one of (hem cried
out with ameloncholy air: "Oh, my Cod, when

And a third thus wrote to his father: " The
