Tho Sisters Farewell.
Tho following (says tlie Index and Bap
tist,) were written, by a Christain in Sout h
Cnrolina several yean ago, during her last
illness, and were never in print before, so
far as .wc aro informed. Their sainted
author never put pen to paper after writing
them, and lingering but a day or two, pass
cd into the skies:
Sister, death is o'er mo stealing.
Earth is lading from iny sight;
Angels o'er my bed are bending,
Clad in robes of shining light.
Sister i am parting from thee,
J caving all life's tod and pain;
Now 1 leave thee, sister dearest,
Dili Ihou'lt yet he mine again.
Yes, in yonder world of glory,
Whore the heart no grief can feel,
Where no sin shall mar our spirits,
Sifter, we shall love there still,
Brar a message to my brother ?
Tell him lite is almost o'er!
Far beyond death's foaming ocean,
l.o, 1 pee the eternal shore.
Give to him my dying message;
Give to him my hist farewell,
Tell him I am passing upward,
In the better land to dwell.
Soon, yes soon, my carthworn spirit
Will be free from doubt and care:
Sooe I'll reach the courts of heaven:
" Tell him he must meet me there.

The Republic, a Washington magazine,
presents some rather startling statistics
concerning the different wars in which the
United States have .been engaged. In the
war of the revolution (177"> to 1785$) 278,
021 soldiers wore engaged; in the war of
1F12 to 1815, 527,051; in the Mexican war,
70.200?-malting a total of 878,030?while in
the war of 18C0 no less than 2,757,508 wore
engaged. During the rebellion, 270,089
f:flieers and men were hilled or wounded,
vhile RG,749 were missing in action. Since
tho commencement of the war the govern
ment has paid, up to .Tune, 1871, in pen
pioiis, over $251,000,000. Deducting $5,000,

Some idea of tho number of pensions and

The rebellion entailed a debt of $2,500,
000,000 upon tho government, tobe paid by
the people, and, aside from the principal of
the public debt and pensions, there was
paid during the fiscal year 1S7-5 the sum of
$127,002,089.03, on account of ?oxpenses
