*^lengthonod shadow flings,
oh' oft mr mind recalls the hour.
When t? my father s home
De%th came au uninvite?l guest
Fro111DWEUIAS IN THE TON
I had not seen his face before -
I shuddered at the sight;
And I shudder yet to think upon
The anguish of that night!
A voutbful brow and ruddy cheek
Became ?ll cold and wau,
An eye grew dim in which tho light
Of radiant fancy shone.
Cold was the eheek and cold tho brow,
The eve %as fixed and dim;
And the'rorl moaned a brother dead.
Who would have died for him!
-I know not if 'twas summer then
I know not if 'twas spring;
But if the birds sang in the trees,
I did not hoar them sing.
If flowers came forth to deck the earth,
Their bloom I did not see;
I looked upon one withered flower,
" And none oise bloomed for me!
A sad and silent time it was
Within the house of woo;
All eyes were dim and overcast.
And every voice was low.
And from each cheek at intervals
The blood appeared to start.
As if recalled in sudden haste
To aid the sinking heart!
Softly we trod, as if afraid
To mar the sleeper's sleep,
And stole last looks of his sad face
For memory to keep.
With him the agony was o'er,
And now the pain was ours,
As thoughts of nis sweet childhood rose,
Like odor from dead flowers.
And when at last he was borne afar
From the world's weary strife,
How oft in thought did we again
Live o'er his little life.
His every look, his every word,
His very voice's tone,
Come back to ns like things whose worth
Is only prized when gone!
The griof has past with years away.
And joy has Deen my lot;
But one is long remembered.
And the other's soon forgot.
The gayest hours trip lightly by,
And leave thc faintest trace,
But the deep track that sorrow wears,
No timo can e'er efface.

THE ONLY RECOGNIZED DEMOCRATIC
NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN NEW
YORK, DAILY, SEMI-WEEK?
LY AND WEEKLY.
TO THE PUBLIC.
THE NEW YORK NEWS HAS BATTLED
against despotism for four vcars of
blood and terror, in assertion of the sanc?
tity of the Constitution. A patriotism
sufficiently broad to embrace both sections
has been its onlv guide, and it refers now
with honest pride to its record to show that
it uss not turned to the right or tho loft
under all the violence of arbitrary power.
True to its principles as THE NEWS has
been through the reign of terror, it chal?
lenges public confidence in its honesty and
independence for the future.
The political transition of the present
day opens to THE NEWS a new and wider
field of usefulness. Standing now, as it
always has, on the inviolability of the Con?
stitution, according to the interpretation of
the strict constructionists, it presents a
rallying ground for all, in both sections,
who are friends of a generous conservatism.
As a true and tried exponent of sectional
amity, it occupies a position which makes it
the fitting mediator in holding up to tho
party of order, in both sections, interests
and principles that gave breadth and vi?
tality to their alliance. As an intersec
tional agent, devoted to freedom of elec?
tion, to trial by jury, to the sanctity of tho
habeas corpus, and opposed now, as for
four years of terror it has been, to the cen?
tralization that dares to trample on the
rights of States, North or South, THE
NEWS places itself as a candidate for sup?
port before tho great body of this once free
The circumstances of thc moment make
the dissemination of the principles of THE
NEWS a duty of individual patriotism.
Every man who concurs in it? doctrino
must, if he entertain a true sense of free?
dom, do so in no spirit of indifference, but
rather with the earnestness of a high trust.
Justified, nay bound, in his love of libertv,
to do so,the proprietor places the canvass he
makes here of the public generally in tho
hands of thoeo men who give him "the ap?
proval of their consciences as his individual
agents. Every reader of THE NEWS cannot
avoid tho conviction of duty which is hero
pointed out as the ground of the request,
that he urges its claims for a Wider support
upon all ot his friends and neighbors who
give their earnest sympathies to tho causo
of "strict construction, ' intersection al con?
ciliation, and all the rights of the citizens
under the system set up by our fathers of
liberty regulated by law. The proprietor
of THE NEWS calls, therefore, upon good
and true Conservatives throughout tho
country, to discharge, to their convictions
of political right at this great crisis in tho
country's fortunes, the duty of giving to
the influence of his paper, daily, semi?
weekly or weekly, the wider power "for good
which" it seeks here through the service of
its individual supporters.
