BY JAMES U. CLARK.
Leono, the hour draws nigh,
The hour .we've waited bo loug,
FW tuo'atagel to opeu a dbor through the
That my spirit may break from its prison
. ahd try
Its voice in an infinite song.
Just now as the slumlTcrs of night
Cnrrio o'er mo with peace giving breath,
4:TJie curtains half lifted, revealed to ray
Those windows which look on tho kingdom
. ? 'flight.
That borders the river of death.
And a -vision fell solemn aud sweet,
Bringing gleams of the morning lit-land ;
I saw the white shore which the pale wa
And I heard tho low lull as thej broko at
Who walked on the beautiful strand.
t?41v'tU! ? ?
And I wondered why spirits should cling
To their clay with a struggle and sigh,
When life's purple autumn is bettor than
And the soul flies away like a sparrow, t o
In a climate where leaves never die.
Loona, come oloso. to ray bed.
And lay your dear band on ray brow.
Tho same touch that thrilled mc in dnys
that arc fled.
And raiso the lost roses of youth from the
Can brighten the brief moments now,
We havo loved from the cold world apart.
And your trust wns too generous and true
For them to o'crthrow; when the slanderer's
Was runkling deep in raj' desolato heart,
pi was dearer than ever to you.
I thank the Groat Father for this,
That'our love is not. lavished in vain;
Each germ in the future, will blossom to
And'theforms that wo love, and the lips
that wo kiss,
Never Bhrink at the shadow of pain.
By thbiigbt of this faith am I taught,
-v- That death is but art ion begun;
In tho strength of this hope have I struggled
With the legions of wrong, till my armor
The glcnm of Eternity's sun.
1.ronii, look forth and behold
From headland, from hillside, and deep,
The day king surrenders his banners of
The twilight advances through woodland
And the dews arc beginning to weep.
The Moon's silver hail lie.? uncurled,
Down the broad brestod mountains away;
Ere sunset's red glories again shnll be furled
On tho walls of the west, o'er the ploins
of the world,
I shall rise in a limitless day.
0! come not in tears to my tomb,
Nor plant with frail flowers the sod?
There is rest among roses loo sweet for its
And lifo where the 1 iHi cs eternally bloom
In the balm-breathing gardens of God.
Yet deeply those memories burn
Which bind me to you and to earth
And I sometimes-have thought that ray be
ing would yearn
In the bowers of its beautiful home, to
And visit the home of its birth.
" ' 'Twould even be pleasant to slay,
4 And >valk by your side ts tho last;
But tho land breeze of Heaven isbegining
Life's shadows arc mooting 'Eternity'g day,
? And its tumult ib hushed in tho past.
Lcona' good-bye; should Ihe grief
That is gathering now, ever bo
Too dark for your faith, you will long for

Song of tho Taxpayers on tho ttank

Three children sliding on the ice
Upon a summer's day,
It bo fell out, they fell in
The rest they ran away.
Now had these childtcn been at home,
Or sliding on dry ground,
Ten thousand pounds to one penny,
They had not alltbcen drowned.
Let them bo decently buircd ! But
what wo say to the other little boys who
ran away, Whalcy, Wograth, Butler;

, ? Machine Purity.?An ingenious
Yankee, according to a Boston journal,
has invented a machine which, if all is
true that the inventor olaims, will do
more to purify elections, restore the
public tone, bring the couutry back to
tho leachings of Washiugtou and tho
fathers and prevent corruption than the
solutions of a dozon political conven
tions and the efforts of two thirds of tho
party press combined. This machine
is called'the patent safety ballot box,'
and the inventor assures us that it cau
neither bo etuffod nor manipulated. It
seems to havo made bo deep an impres
sion upon the Senato that wo wonder
an appropriation was not made to send
into South Carolina. The State stands in
f wore need of the virtues possossed by
this machine than any other. We
should like to seo it tried on Mosos and
