Tile oid niau sits beeide the look,
Where ?ltdey dries the water;
Tho old wife, io ber faded frock,
still knit?! eua nods bj? tho cottage clock;
Bat ?hi the little daughterl
i MOU no more her loving eyes,
I hear no more her low rondes
Alas, ala?! the d aug h tori
At dawn tba bird? begin to sing,
And o'er and o'er lue water
The swallow flits with winking wing;
Toe old folks waka with the waking epringf
Out ?bl tho little daughterl
No more to list tba onckoo'a call
Mio roams the woods of tho Manar Halt
Alas, alasl the daughter!
Hid-aummer brought the >onng Earl back,
The lord of wood and water;
II ? mot her in the greenwood track
Ills eyes wore wondrous bold and black
Ali, mel the little danghterl
Ho whispered, "Trust me, Ol mine own!"
Hho wept, VI live for thee alon? 1"
Alas, alaal the daughter!
Hlow moved the weary mon tba to years;
All day dripped down the water;
Tue father's heart waa doll with fears.
The mother'a eyes were dim with tears
Ah, me! the little daughter!
Who is it 'neath tho city's glare,
Looks up with wild bewildered atare?
Alaa, alaal the daughter!
A night there esme-a night of wroth
The rain beat on the water.
The wind blew from the nighing North,
'i bo cottage lights ahown freely forth
But ah! the little daughter!
Low in tbe dripping look she lias,
With tangled hair sud altered eyes
Alua, alas) the danghtor!
[ Tinsley1 a Magazine,
nerluus Bolt ?(?The Hat?"-Tbe Atlantic
Monthly Attack? President Urant.
The replies of the friends of the Ad?
ministration to tho charges made against
the President have boon from the iiret,
considered merely as replies, singularly
ineffective. The official reply to the
oharge of nepotism was that, instead of
having appointed twenty-fonr relatives
to office, the President had only ap*
pointed twelve. But the diflioulty with
thia method of meeting the aoouBation
was, that it did not go far enough.
Obviously the question was not whether
the number of these appointments had
been exaggerated, but what the propor?
tion waa between the whole number of
appointments aotuaPy made and the
whole n amber of relatives. If the Pre?
sident has 2,000 relatives clamorous for
offloe, the appointment of twelve (it may
possibly have been eleven) was not very
large. . Ou the other baud, if he has
?inly thirteen relatives who m eic offices,
und are eligible under the Constitution,
thu appointment of twelve shows a
different spirit. To have made ita reply
complete, the official organ in New York
ought to publish not only a complete
lint of all tbe relatives of the President
aud Mrs. Grant, but at the same time
furnish full information on tho other
points we.have indicated. To the most
Hurious oharge of all, that of these
family appointees several were incompe?
tent to discharge the duties of their
offices ib a fit and houest manner, one of
them Ueiug the notorious Casey, of New
Orleans; no reply bk's been made. Tbe
country has as yet been spared hearing
by way of official answer that these in?
decent appointments were not in reality
four in number, us had been reported,
bat only three.
In the second place, tb" oharge that,
in the face of repeated remonstrances,
the President has allowed an obsenre
und impudent adventurer to amass a for?
tune by a systematic system of pl nuder,
under the protection of th?, authorities'
of the Government, it was replied that
the general order system would soon be
modified. And it bas been modified,
and no one knows to-day whether Lset
retains the control of it or not. To the
charge that the President took no inte?
rest in the most important political ques?
tion of tho day, that of civil service re?
form, it was replied that a board of emi?
nent men had been appointed to consider
the subject, and that the President would
be guided by their conclusions. Their
report was made and adopted by the f re?
sident, and a great flourish of trumpets
- was made over this reform, which might
quite as easily have been introduced
three years before; and it had hardly
been adopted, when it was announced
that the rules would be temporarily sus?
pended whonever the Administration
And, lastly, to the oharge of present
taking, the reply made is, tbat the whole
matter was talked over in 1867 by Gol.
Forney, Mr. Justice Garter, and Senator
Thayer and General Grant's ohief of
staff, and it yras decided that, as General
Grant had saved tho rich a great deal
during tue war, it was only fair that hs
should get'some of it himself. AU these
accusations, however, are merely matters
of detail. Those who distrust the Ad?
ministration ha vo an underlying ground
of complaint, which it would require a
great deal to remove. It bas often been
repeated, but repetition does not weaken
ita force. It is, that ? when General
Grant was elected, four years ago, it was
the popular belief and understanding
that he would bend ai i his energies to
tho work of purifying the Government,
of redeeming it from the corruption into
whioh it 'has fallen, of assisting those
whoso object it is to make political lifo
in America onca more respectable and
honorable. Instead of doing tbis, he
has allied himself with the very men
whose hames are' by-words throughout
the cou n try for those vices whioh he pro?
fessed his desire to root ont; he has lent
bis warm assistance to petty faotions,
warring not for soy political object, but
for the eontrol of plunder, nntl he now
demands his re-election on the strength
of these services to the country.

DOWN AMONO THE DEAD.-The New
York World, of the 21st, treats of a sub?
ject, editorially, which is interesting to I
all men and everywhere. The TFbrWl
says: "How to dispose of the dead is a
question ooneerniog which . sanitarians I
and sentimentalists are at swords' points,
and as population increasingly aggre?
gates at certain centres, the discussion I
between the conflicting parties acquires
additional importance. Tho village |
church-yard, distant from the habita?
tions of the living, with its dozen or so
of flower-bearing graves, is a very differ?
ent thing from the city cemetery, with
its hundred masoned vanita, in each of
which are shelved the coffins of two or
three generations, and medical authori?
ties are unanimous in insisting that tho j
latter, at all events, if not the former,
must bo suppressed. But how? 'Wo
must have oonseurated ground for Chris?
tian burial,' says the churchman. 'We
must show our reverence for the depart?
ed,' adds the strict follower of the fifth
commandment. 'Every family of any
respectability must have its family vault,'
chimes ia the patrician. 'But you
mnsn't put a number cf dead bodies to?
gether to poison an entire neighbor?
hood.' retorts the sanitarian, 'Senti?
ment-begins a blooming widow. 'Sul?
phuretted hydrogen gas,' interrupts tho
"It cannot be denied that our present
method of interment is not only detri?
mental to health but wasteful, inaBmuoh
as it prevents tho useful completion of j
nature's oircle wherein decomposing or?
ganic matter is utilized for the fertiliza-1
lion of the soil and the maintenance of
new life. The system of inoremation
a return to which is advocated by Prof.
Hammond-would be almost as wasteful,
because, although no particle of matter
is really destroyed, and the vaporized
produots of combustion would ultimately
enter into new organic combinations, yet
a large number of persons would proba?
bly insist upon carrying out the enoient
custom in all its details and preserving
their deceased relatives' ashes (which
would contain important salts) iu oma- j
mental urns, thus defrauding che vege?
table kingdom of its rightful due.
"A plan satisfying all the conditions of j
the problem has been once before sug?
gested in these columns, consisting iu
the simple expedient of abolishing
coffins, and dedaring that all interments
should be made in arable soil-fixing by
law, of course, the maximum numb ir of
funerals to be allowed tu un ucre. In
this way mab's ordained ' return to dust
would be assured, and in luxuriant crops
the 'r?surrection of the body' would be
literally verified. The disinfecting pro- \
perties of earth, which now aro resisted I
by the interposition of ooffius, would
then suflioa to protect the public health.
Thenc too, sentiment ns wall ag a sense j
of the eternal fitness of things, might (
be consulted in the selection of appro?
priate garden-beds to commemorate |
special traits of character. Husband
and wife might repose together beneath
tho roots of a prickly pear-apt typo of
their earthly union; the pastor's sermons
might be recalled to the memory of Iiis
flock by a stately growth of the som?
niferous poppy; the lawyer might j
posthumously flourish in the barberry,
while his olieut might be typified in
ragged robin; the boardinghouse!
keeper's dryad would find n continual
abode in 'ash; and so on throughout a
wide botnnioul range of similitudes. Or
special modifications of vegetation might
be induced by experimental horticul?
turists familiar with the mould of human
nature and of garden, not surprising the
liquor dealers of the West fear for their
profits while the novelty of tho new law
A PAINT MINE.-During a recent visit j
to Augusta, we saw specimens of pure
burut umber, taken from au extensive
bed of this valuable minoral recently
opened seventeen miles above Augusta,
about a mile and a half from the Georgia I
Railroad. It is on lands owned by a Mr, [
Roed and his sister. Miss Lnoy J. Reed,
well known as the agent of tho Grover &
Baker sewing maohine. The mino is of
vast extent, covering several acres, and
lying iii a vein easily aooesBible, twenty
feet deep* on a hill-side. The umber hos
been analyzed by chemists in Augusta
and New York, and pronounced equal to
Turkish umber. It has been used by the
painters in Augusta-some of the inte?
rior of Gray's elegant store boiug painted
.with it. Major George T. Jackson and I
tho Messrs. Denning, of Augusta, are
Open io g the mine, and preparing to put |
ibis new product of Georgia's mineral
wealth upon the market. They propose
to deliver it in New York at $50 a ton.
It is believed that it will speedily take
the place of Tar ki ah umber for many
purposes. It has been already burnt by
-*->?a? volcanic heat, thus greatly reduc?
ing the expense, over the raw, of prepu-1
ration for uso.-Athens Banner.
SOCIETY IN NOBTHBHN Onrna,-In Bos?
ton socio ty, it is said, everybody snobs
everybody else; In New York society,
everybody gossips about everybody oise;1
in Philadelphia everybody attends tocho
morals of everybody else; in Baltimore
society, everybody fraternizes with
everybody elB6; and in Chicago society,
just at present, everybody is borrowing
from somebody elsa. Boston, therefore,
is aristocratic; New York and Philadel?
phia democratic; Baltimore, patriarohial ;
and Chicago, communistic.
DOLLY VABDBNS.-If our readers havo
ever seen a flock of sheep follow their
leader, running when he rans, walking
when he walks, and even leaping over a
straw, should he happen to have in?
dulged in that silly proceeding, they
oannot fail to compare them with the
blind followers of fashion. No heed
what ridiculous peculiarities fashion in?
dulges in, the stupid Bheep follow her
lead with the most nnquestioning faith
in her. If it be a hat that does not cover
the hoad, an abominable chignon that
imposes on nobody, a bunch of curls
that makes no pretence to be either well
placed or well matched, and, in faot, is
innocent of deception of any nature; or
a puf&iug out of the skirts that robs tho
figaro of all (trace under tho title of a
Grecian bend, it has only to bear the
sign-manual of fashion to become the
vogue. The last vagary of this kind is
the Dolly Varden, a very pretty affair
when seen in pictures of a hundred years
ago, and which was, no doubt, a charm?
ing addition to the costumes of the So?
phia Westons, the Lady Botty Modiahes
and the Clarissa Ilario wea of old; bat ns
muon, out of place on the backs of the
Indien of our day as the square-cut coat
and sword of the time cf George II
would be in connection with the black
pantaloons and shirt collars of the pre?
sent time. But leaving all anachronism
oat of the question, wo must protest
against the general use into which it is
coming, regardless of propriety. Elderly
spinsters, servant girls and chamber?
maids have booome inoculated with the
mania, and have made a raid upon old
chintz hangings and bed quilts, iu order
to transform them into Dolly Vardens.
The way was paved for it by the return
to the hideous high-heeled shoes of n
century ago, and we may not have lou g
to wait before we see our wives and
daughters add the quilted satin petticoat
and the powdered wig to their costumes,
and the black patches known as beauty
spots to their faces. Why should this
retrograde movement iu fashion be con?
fined to the fair sex alone? Why should
not the sterner sex also have its privi?
leges in the way of fashionable eccentri?
city, and boldly dive into the ocean of
the past to oome pulling and panting to
the surface, dripping with the gorgeous
inconsistencies of a by-gone age?
A THHIIJIJINO TABLEAU-A SOBPEISE
PABTY QUITE SUBPRIBED.-Oertain young
ladies and gentlemen in a Montgomery
County town determined a few days ago
to get up a surprise party for the pur?
pose of visiting the house of Mr. and
Mrs. Gilpin. Everything was arranged.
The provisions were nicely packed away
in the carriages, the musicians wore on
gaged, and the porty merrily drove to
Gilpin's residence. It was agreed that
instead o? ringing the bill, the frontdoor
should be quietly opened aud the party
should rush right into the parlor, in or?
der to make the surprise the greater. It
was done. The company entered on tip?
toe and stole quietly along the entry
until the parlor door was reached. Then
it was opened, and the whole crowd
rushed in with a laugh. The merriment,
however, did not contiuuo-not for any
considerable length of time, at least; for
the first thing observed by the visitors
was a tableau-Mrs. Gilpin sitting upon
tho prostrate form of Mr. Gilpin, with
one hand tangled among his hair, while
with the other hand she pounded him
with tho coal-souttle. Gilpin, mean?
while, expressed his sentiments in
groans, intermingled with certain om*
phatio and earnest adjectives and verbs,
which were, perhaps, natural, but cer?
tainly improper. The party was more
of a surprise than the company had nn
tioipated; and when Mrs. Gilpin ob?
served the visitors, she rose and tried to
explain that she was helping Mr. Gilpin
to tack down the carpet-an explanation
which left no room for any theory os to
the method by which Mr. Ci ii pi n's nose
woe induced to yield a copious stream of
gore, and permitted conjeotnre to run
wild as to why Mrs. Gilpin should hold
him down to the carpet by his hair, and
hit his head every time, instead of tho
tack, with the coal-scuttle.
