* Hlymental Poetry.
This woman wilt thou have,
And cherish her for lifa ? -
Wilt thou love and comfort her,
And seek no other wife ?
This woman I wil) take,
That stands beside me now;
I'll give her board and clothes,
And have no other frow.
And for your husband will
You take thisnice young man,
Obey his slikhtest wish,
And love him all you can.
I'll love h'n all I can,
Obey him all I choose,
And when I ask for funds,
lie never dArd refuse.
* Then 6u are man and wife,
And happy mry you be,
As many be your years,
As dollars be.my fee.
A SPECU, OF HENRY A WISE.
In Richmond,h few days ago, Hen.
rv A. Wise delivered an address in be
half of the orphans of Confederate sol.
diers, and it is pro6f.that he has not for.
gotten how'to t4lk., lie spoke thus:
0I ashes of men,,. and. ashes of houses
of Richmond I - People of Boston and
New York,. unsolicited, hAve contribu
ted a mite, at least, to feed the orphans
of your sons who fell in your defense,
and these orphans have, for month"y
been drawing their daily bread from the
commissariat of our invaders and con
querors I Cannot you do - sometihlig
more than you have done for orphan
-children, the fithers of some of whom
bled and died for you and,yours-your
laws, your liberties, and (what seems
mqst precious now-a-days) your "prop
erty," your "gold," which you hold so
fast, yet pend so. vainry.
Mr WVise. tius discoursed of the
bravery of Confederate soldiers:
The nobleot bands of men who ever
fought, or' wtp ever fell in the annais of
war, whose glorious deeds history ever
took pen to record, were, I exultingly
claim, the private soldiers in the armies
of the great Confederate cause. Wheth.
er right or wrong in the cause which
they espoused, they were earnest and
honest patriots in their convictians, w.ho
thought that they w.ere right to defend
their o.vn, their native land, its soil, its
altars and its - honors. They felt thae
they were no rebels and no - traitors In
obeying their State sovereignties, 'and
they thought it was lawful to take- u'p
arms under their mandates, autiorized
expressly by the Federal Constitution to
repel invasion .or to suppress insurrec
tion. when there was such "imsinent
danger as not to admit of d%lay."
The only re4son for tlit delay 'which
could have been denanoed of them was
to have appealed to the invaders them.

After telling what hte had seen them

A TEnmnirn ADVENTUnE IN THE
NAOAnA Riim.-Last Saturday after.
11oon1, a very large quantity of ice passed
down the Niagara river from Lake
Erie, suspending the trips of the ferry
boat which plies between Black Rock
and Fort Erie. William *A Thomp
son, Vice-President of tlhe new Erie and
Niagara railroad, was on the Canadian
side, and attempted to return with a
man and a boy. They had nearly reach
ed the American shore, when the ice
crowded round and they were caught by
it vnd wedged fast ; they could neither
go on nor return.. The side of the
boat were crushed, and it btgnn to fill
rapidly. The three leaped upon the
nearest cake of ice and drew the boat
partly upon it. -.
Mr, Thompson then began to bail out
the boat with his cap, but the ice came
again upon them and they had just time
to spring into the half-fifled boat when
the sheet on which they had been stind.
ing was crushed by another. The boat
was struck, and capsiZdd,' and both the
men thrown Ninto the water. The .boy
lepped on an ice-cake.. Mr. Thompon
sank, rose, clutched the boat, Ind climb
ed upon its keel, The other man sank
and drowned. - The boat was .again
struck and'upset ; he sank and rose
again ; chitched the boat and climbed
into its stem, where he sat in water up to
his chin. It was now dark. A cake
of ice drifted against the, boat ; he .put
out his hand to ward it off, and finding
it to be several inches thick, crawled
upon it. But not knowing the size of
the ice-rAft, lie dared riot move it. He
called to tho boy whom he could hear in
loud prayer, and found that he was still
q1loat on his bit of.ice..
It was a bitter night. A storm of
sleet was falling, driven by keen north
winds, and f6-eezing as it fell. All he
could do for three mortal hours in that
darkness, stir.m and extvrmo peril was
