Alter the Burial.
BY JAMES BUSSELL LOWELL.
Tea. Faith is a goodly anchor;
When skies are sweet as a psalm,
At the bows its lolls so stalwart
In buff broad-shouldered calm.
And when over breakers to leeward,
; The tattered surecs are hurled.
It may keep our head to the tempest.
With t's grip on the base ci the world.
But alter the shipwreck, tell rae
What help in its ?rou thews.
Still true to" the broken hawser,
Deep ?own among sea-weed and ooze ?
In the breaking fruits of sorrow.
When the belpbss feet stretch out,
And find in the deeps of darkness
No footing so solid as doubt.
Then better ene spar of memory;
One broken plank of the past.
That our human heai t may cling to,
Though hopeless ot shore at last!
To the spirit its splendid conjectures,
To the flesh its sweet despair,
its tears o'er the thin-worn locket
With its beauty of deathless hair.
Immortal? I feel it and know it;
Who doubts it of such as the ?
But that is the pane's very secret
Immortal away from me I
There's a narrow ridge in ibo graveyard,
tv ould scarce stay a child in his race ;
But to me and my thought it is wider
Than the star-sown vague ot space.
Tour logic, my friend, is perfect,
Your montis most drearily true.
But the earth that stops my darling's ears
Makes mine insensate too.
Console, if you will; I can bear it;
'Tis a well-meant alms of breath;
But not all the preaching since Adam
Has made Death other than Death.
Communion in spirit ? Forgive me,
But I, who am earthy and weah,
Would give all my incomes from dreamland
For her rose-leaf palm on my cheek !
That little shoe in tho corner,
So worn, end wrinkled, and brown
Its motionless hollow confutes you,
And argues \ our wisdom down.

The following petition from sundry citizens
engaged in siaugntering, was referred to the
Board of Health :
I CHABXESTON, April 20,1868.
To the Honorable thc Mayor and City Council of
Charleston, S. C.:
The undersigned, citizens of Charleston,
who represent the interest of a large class of
the community. would most respectfully bring
to the notice- of your honorable body the fol?
lowing facts hr connection with the ordinance
regulating slaughter pens, now existing and
about to be enforced, and pray that their sug?
gestions herein mode may be considered :
In their present impoverished condition,
many of those engaged in the business now
would be unable to remove their slaughter
pens, while ?such as may be able to do so will
not only suffer great inconvenience, but seri?
ous loss, the result ot which ?ill be an increase
in the price of all kinds of fresh meat, which is
regarded by your petitioners as equally neces?
sary as a sanitary agent as pure air; p?ttin? it
beyond the reach of most of our people, since
where the expense and loss consequent upon
the removal of the slaughter pens will fall
alike upon all engaged in the business, there
can be no competition sufficient to keep the
The ordinance, as now existing, allows the
city to have slaughter pens within the limits
of the same, and tins, your petitioners think,
von must admit to be prejudicial to the inter?
est of the private citizen who by the same or?
dinance is obliged to remove out'of the city to
carry on his business? and a monopoly of all
the advantages of location as regards proximi?
ty to the markets, on the part of the city, and
which they think is at least unfair, if not arbi?
trary; and yoar honorable body must admit
that the fact of these pens being owned by the
city, does not make their removal any less ne?
cessary as a sanitary measure than * those of
private parties, especially as the city pens are
not properly constructed, and require to be
moved nearer the tidewater.
The objection most generally urged against
all slaughter pens is that they are not proper?
ly cleaned, and are allowed to remain in a
filthy condition, and this we regard as being
more injurious than their location, while it
can be remedied by a careful system of inspec?
tion by city officers, appointed to see that the
pens are kept properly cleaned and in good
condition; and your petitioners would most re?
spectfully pray that, in consideration of the
above recited facts, your honorable body
would so amend the ordinance as to allow of
the following requirements:
1st. That no slaughter pens be allowed in
any part of the city or its suburbs, unless lo?
cated over or directly upon a tide-water course,
which can be washed by the tide twice in every
twenty-four hours, and the slops and contents
thereby thoroughly removed.
2d. That the slaughter pens be thoroughlv
and regularly washed out after each slaughter?
ing of cattle, and every thing removed which
can in any way prove injurious to the pub?
lic health, under heavy penalties for neglect.
3d. That additional city pens be built, m or?
der to ac oinmodate those who are unable to
build for themselves, and bored out as the pens
now owned by the city are; and that a sufficient
area of city lands adjacent be enclosed by a
substantial fence, and the parties hiring the
city pens be allowed to use the enclosures as
a pasture for cattle designed for our market.
Your petitioners believe that these condi?
tions being carried out, will not only benefit
those engaged in the business and the commu?
nity, but will prove a source of revenue to the
city; f Jr your petitioners feel as deeply inter?
ested in all measures calculated to improve or
preserve the public health as any class of our
citizens, and would be willing to suffer any in?
convenience and loss to that end in the present
instance, but that they feel confident of carry?
ing out such necessary regulations in regard to
slaughter pens within the bruits of the city as
will effectually prevent their being regarded as
sources ot disease, or in any degree prejudicial
to the public health, while at the same time
such measures will not only accommodate the
citizens generally, but bene'fit your petitioners,
who will ever pray, ?ic.

Uv Alderman Marshall :
The Special Committee appointed by Council
to examine into the condition of the Alma
House, respectfully report: That they made a
full and thorough examination on the 18th
instant, and found as inmates on that day,
tiventv -eight males, forty-one females, and
twelve children-a total of eighty-one. The
number of out-door pensioners amounted to
sixteen hundred and seven.
The general conditiou of the house was as
well conducted as could be expected. Your
committee, however, would suggest that the
City .Registrar be instructed to direct one of
the" city physicians to attend once a day at a
stated hour, thereby avoiding the necessity of
being 6ent for. They also recommend that the
same quality of bread be given to the out-door
pensioners as is given Co the m-door ones, as
the 6anie pnce is charged for both; also
recommend that his Honor the Mayor use his
good offices to procure from the military au?
thorities clean and proper bedding for the in?
mates, as what is there now furnished i3 not
fit for any one to use; also recommend that the
children "now at the Alms House be sent to the
Orphan House as soon as they can be admitted,
as the present place is not the proper one for
them; also recommend that the commissioners
elected will try and visit the institution oftener,
and not leave their noble work to be performed
by those who live near the house.
