I loved them so,
That when the Elder Shepherd of tho fold
Came over with the storm, and pale and
And begged for one of my sweet lambs to
I bade him go.
He claimed the pet
A little fondling thing that to my breast
Clung always, either in quiet or unrest ;
I thought of all my iambs! loved lum host,

And yet again
The Elder Shepherd came. My heart grew
He claimed another lamb, with sadder
Another! She who, gentle as a saint,
Ne'er gave me pain.
Aghast I turned away !
There sat she, lovely as an angel's dream,
"?1er golden locks with sunlight all agleam,
lier holy eves with Heaven in their beam ;
t knelt to pray.
"Is it Thy will?
My Father, say, must this pet lamb be
* given ?
O Thou hast many such, dear Lord, in
And a soft voice said, "Nobly hast thou
But-peace, be still."
0 how I wept,
Anti clasped her to my bosom with a w?d
And vearning love-mv lamb-mv pleasant
Her, too, I gave. The little angel smiled.
"Go, go," I cried ;
For once again that Shepherd laid his hand
Upon the noblest of our household band ;
Like a pale spectre there he took his stand
. Close to his Ride.
And yet how wondrous sweet
The look with which ho heard my passion?
"Touch not my lamb; for him O let me
" A little while," ho said, with 6mile and
Again to meet."
Hopeless I fell ;
And when I-rose the light had burned so
So faint. I could not seo my darling go ;
He had not bidden me farewell, but O,
1 felt farewell !
More deeply, far,
Than if my arms had compassed that slight

A Pious GAMBLER.-The venerabl
Rev. Dr. Ashbel Green, of Philade:
phia, who died some years ago, kep
an autobiographical volume whic
contained many interesting remin
sconces. He speaks of meeting, whi]
^ on a visit to the Warm Springs <
Virginia, a notorious gambler, Maje
Willys, who had been a gallant office
of the regular Revolutionary arm;
and was a remarkable man in mac
respects, both of body and mind. E
was at the head of all the gamblers i
Virginia; and when Dr. Green heai
of his coming to ? i .e Warm Spring
where ho had got the company to trei
religion respectfully, he said to a s
rious man who was well acquaint?
? ?? -- - - with the Major, that he was afraid 1
-would give him trouble. The gent!
niau replied that it was unnecessai
tear; that the Major valued himse
on being a friend to the clergy; an<
although dreadfully profane, he nevi
swore in thc presence of a minister i
the Gospel of whatever denominatio;
This testimony Dr. Green found
be strictly true". Willys not only ti
tended public worship regularly, b
?"-.us an advocate for asking a blessii
and returning thanks at the comme
meals; and, in the absence of a cl?
gyraan, was accustomed to ask
blessing and give thanks himself. ]
* the Virginia Sweet Springs ho on
said to a circle of hisgamblingfrienc
"Gentlemen, you may think of it
you please, and laugh at it, as I kne
yoi will, yet it is strictly true, thal
ue.yer close my eyes tili I have coi
nutted myself to the protection
my Gae? " ^
THE BEAUTY OF OL? PEOPLE.-Men
and women make their own beauty or
their own ugliness. Sir Edward Bul?
wer Lytton speaks, in one of his no?
vels, of a man "who was uglier than
he had any business to be;" and, if
he could but read it, every human
being carries his life in his face, and
is good-looking or the reverse as that
.life has been good or evil. On our
features the fine chisel of thought
and emotion are eternally at work.
Beauty is not the monopoly of bloom?
ing young men and of white and pink
maids. There is a slow-growing
beauty which only comes to perfection
in old age. Grace belongs to no pe?
riod of rife, and goodness improves
! the longer it exists.. I have seen
: sweeter smiles on a lip of seventy
than I ever saw on a lip of seventeen,
j There is the beauty of youth, and
j there is also the beauty of holiness
I a beauty much more seldom met; and
j more frequently found in the arm
; chair by the fire, with grand-children
j around" its knee, than in the ball?
room or the promenade. Husband
! and wife who have fought the world
; side by side, who have made common
i stock " of joy and sorrow, and aged
! together, are not unfrequently found
i curiously alike in personal appear
' ance and in pitch and tone of voice
j just as twin pebbles on the beach, ex
! posed to the same tidal influences,
? are each other's alter ego. He has
\ gained a feminine something which
I brings his manhood into full relief,
i She has gained a masculine some
j thing which acts as a foil to her wo
! Two children in Chicago have been
I poisoned by putting a card photo
; graph in their mouths. One has
I died, thither is very low.

GAN will stand the season, com?
mencing on the TOth inst., at the

fee $1.50. John is a handsome dark brown
horse, eight years old, fifteen hands high,
by Sir Archy, Whip and Woodpecker
thorough-bred stock-with a cross of Mor
fan. Ho was raised by W. B. Daniels,
?sq., of Yolk District, and in that section
of the State ?has a high reputation as a
stock horse. In January, 1865, a patriotic
citizen purchased him at a high price, and
offered hun as a present to the most dis- !
tinguished cavalry officer in the Confede- j
rate States army. The Lieutenant-General,
however, with characteristic modesty, de?
clined to accept tho costly and splendid
charges. John, having tho kindest dispo?
sition, was then easily broken to harness,
is a fast trotter and hue buggy horse; Terms

Tho extraordinary virtues of this Horse j
Powder are attested to by thousands, am"

farmers, agriculturists and farrier?, as the
best medicine for the horse. It is com- !

cases where disease exists. For indiges?
tion, distempor, hide-bound, drowsiness,

humors, purifies and cools the blood, and
prevents horses becoming stiff and foun?
dered It is astimulnsfor weak stomachs,
and ronderd the limbs and skin soft and
fine, giving a smooth coat to the hair. For
