TO MY MOTHER IN HEAVEN.
I am dreaming, dearest mother,
Of the bright and glorious past;
Er.the"valle of the shadow,"
O'er my soul Its gloom had cast
Dreaming of my happy childhood,
scenes of peace, of hope and joy,
Ofa mother's love, that treasure,
Thet pure gold without alloy.
Oh, I miss thee, dearest mother,
Miss thy kind and thoughtful care,
Who didat guide my infant footsteps,
To the holy shrine of prayer 3
Loving memories of goodness.
With thy gentle presence fraught;
Come, to soothe my heart in anguish,
By the lessons thou bast taught.
Patience, hope and faith, dear mother,
Thou dfdst teach thy wayward child;
Thou, a pure and humble follo'wer,
Of the Saviour "moek and mild,"
True believer, faithful servant,
Thou hast gained thy "Home" above ;
By the blood of the Redeemer,
HIappy in that Saviour's love:
For thou'rt sleeping mother, sleeping
Flie long years beneath the sod, .
And thy ransomed soul rejoicing
In the presence of our God I
And I'm longing, hoping, praying,
For the rest that now is thino;
Swiftly, swiftly speed the moments
When thy home in Heaven shall be mine.
THE BOW OF PROMISE.
ltope on, sweet heart, no fears should geol
Thy horizon to day ;
I know that clouds obscured thy morn,
But they shall pass away.
The spirit born amid deep gloom,
And heavy clouds of sorrow,
Must look aloft to Hope's bright bow,
And wait the coming morrow.
What mean these elouds of doubt that rise
With angry, frowning mein ?
God's hand o'er ruloth all sweet heart
His wonders we have soon.
From out the depths of dark despair,
We much of good may borrow,
And trusting in Ills grace today,
Becomo "Hlis heirs" to-morrow.
De not dismayed, sweet heart, to and
Life's a tempestuous oooan.
For Faith has calmod tho tempest's rage,
And stilled the wave's commotion.
Lo I when the storm its power lias spent
The walling winds their sorrow,
Nature displays her bow through tears
A promise of to-morrow.
Though life is short., the way is dark,
Wu know not what's in store ;
We labor zealously in Hope
We can do nothing more.
Lift up thy drooping soul, faint heart;
Be not east down of sorrow :
The sun may set in clouds to day
'rwill rise again to-morrow.

An Aneodote of Mr. Ohase. tli
MEssRs. EDITORS : I noticed with

Late colisna tho folfowing anecdote of i'
that gentiTnian, *hichi I heard ' related 1"
by one who wasspersonally cognizant of
the circumstances t
Sme forty years since Salmon P.
Ch'h4 was private tutor in the family of A
William Wirt, Attorney General of the
United.States, during the administra
tion of John Quincy Adams. The
usages of Washington society accorded
to persons in his situat:on the entree to
fashionable circles of which Mr. Wirt
and his family were distinguished orna.
ments. The position of the young tutor,
however, was somewhat anomalous and v'
Pmbarrassing among the elite of the po
litical and moneyed aristocracy, and by c
managing mammas and ambitions young
ladies his approaches were rather en
dured than erkcouraged. There was a
marked conception, however, to this
illy-conceited inciftorenco in a lady a
whose character and accomplishnent.s
gave her a commanding position in so
ciety, who always contrived to make '
room for him in the charmed circle
which the graces of her manner and con- a
versation invariably drew around her, S'

tellectual turn, instead of the meretri

vales such assemblies, pihced him per
fectly at ease, and soon made him an K
acceptable companmon to those whose .
count.enance and favour were not to be
dispised or disregarded.
Upon the breaking up of Mr. A dams, c

Cincinnati, where he cornmenced the
study of tho law, while he support (I n
himself by teaching. lie was.renmarka

of the State of Ohio. A mong his first
inquiries was one respecting the l.lv "
who had countenanced and befrientded "
him in his obscurity, but the places that
had known her now knew her no more. I
Misfortune had come upon her, and she f
had faded from the vision and the mem
ories of her former associates and admir
ers. Pursuing his inquiiries he learned
that she was It widow, and in straitened a
circumstances, and mnnkingt his way to '.
her humble residence, he found her con
fined to her hed with a fatal maulade, '
with scant ntendance, and a still scant
ier supply of the necessc,ries which her
condition imnperatively dcmonrmled. 1e e1

ence of five hundred millions, an amount
almost equal to the entrie expense of
the government. The Radical policy
has not only set fire to and consumed
one-half of the granaries, the stacks and
harvest fields of the United States, but
it likewise taxes what is left to keep a
standing army over the ghastly and
smouldering ruins it, has made.
But I may be tvld that the destruc
tion of slavery is the cause of the do.
struction ofso much wealth ; that the
figures which I have produced from the
census of 1860, was based upon slave
labor. At that time the South con.
taiied a white population of 8,604,000.
Its black population numbered 8,890,
000. There that population, trained
to labor, remains to day. The ravages
of war and the results of emancipation
have been made up, or nearly so, by
the law of natural increase. The states
manship of the country finds a vast la
boring population in possession of the
most fertile and productive region of the
earth, and by its policy turns that re
gion into a barren desert and howling
wilderness. The rich lands are there.
The brawny and stalwart labor is there,
and actual want is there. But the
miserable and incendiary politician of
the North is also there ; the infamous
Union League, with which to seduce
the negro to his ruin, is there; a vast
and appalling military despotism, cro
ated and used by a political party for
purposes of abomination, is there ; the
Freednmon's Bureau, that guarantees
out of your pockets that the negro may
live without work, is there, with its
mighty clan of pernicious, poisonous
ommissaries; and the darkness, reptiles,
locusts and pingues were not more fa
tal to Egypt than are these gigantic
evils to that ruined land. We hear the
dreadful cry of actual starvation coming
up at this moment from a country far
richer than the Delta of the Nile. A
loan of thirty millions, to be paid by you
is in contemplation by oflicers of the
Freedmen's Burea at Washington, with
which to maintain a people who will
not work or lot others work in the gar
den spot of creation. Is this the ban
quet to which you were invited by the
abolition of slavery ? Is this the feast
of good things to which you were bid
den by the abolition emmissarios?
* Thus Radical reconstruction proceeds,
and it is the open and avowed purpose
of Congress to admit theso States thus
in the hands and under the control of
the negroes before this season closes.
The great;crimo is pressed now each day
and hour with fierce desperation. And
who so blind as not to see the odious pur
poses? A Presidential election is at
hand, and the first fruits of this accursed
conspiracy are to be seventy electoral
votes deposited for the Radical candi
date by the hands of the negroes. The
negroes of Georgia, in their dense bar
barity, are to outvote the freemen of
Indiana in the choice of Chief Magis
trate. The negro on the levees of the
Mississippi is to drown the voice of the
intelligent farmer om the North. I speak

controlling any longer the wbite vote of

govern this great Republic by the white

the Democratic party, and denounce a
white man's party as an intolerable
offense. But with seventy negro elec
toral votes, and to them added the votes
of Tennessee and Missouri, both bastard
offsprings of the bayonet, they are pro.
paring to rob the people of their sacred
rights, and openly defy the legally ex

a Constitution in the land ; it is a fraud
on the purposes and objects of the war,
