An OIA Ballad.
Liko to the clear in highest sphere,
Whore all imperial glory shines,
Of self-same color is her hair.
Whether unfolded, or in twines.
Hor eyes arc sapphires set in pnow,
Refining heaven at every wink,
Tho gods do fear when as they glow
And I do tremble when I think
Her cheeks are like tho blushing cloud,
That beautiful Apollo's face;
Or like the silver-crimson shroud.
That Phoobus' smiling looks doth grave.
Her lips tr i like two budded roses.
Whom ranks of lillies neighbor nigh,
Within which bounds, she balm encloses,
Apt to entice a deity.
Her neck like to a stately tower.
Where love himself imprisoned lies.
To watch for glances every hour,
From ber divine and sacred eyes.
With Orient pearls, with ruby red.
With marble white, with sapphire blue,
Her body every way is fed,
Yet soft in touch and sweet iu view.
Nature herself her shape admires.
Tho gods are wounded in ber sight,
And love forsakes his heavenly fifes.
And at her eyes his brand doth light.
A GOOD JOKE.-We have heard,
says thc Lynchburg Republican, a
very good story about a- certain rusty
old Confed., who lives in one of our
Western Counties. Not long ago,
being greatly in need of improved
garden seed, and having read in the
papers about the Patent Office and
the Agricultural Bureau, in Wash?
ington,- he conceived the brilliant,
but not very original idea, of sup?
plying his wants at" tho expense of
the Government. So he wrote a
long epistle to the Hon. Charles
Sumner, Senator from Massachusetts,
setting forth that he was one of the
tried and true, who had come up out
of the fire without the hellish smell
of rebellion on his garments. He
also expiated on tho high regard and
warm admiration with which he had
been inspired by tho contemplation
of Mr. Sumner's eminent, courageous
and patriotic public career. He
would be very happy if Mr. Sumner
would pay him a visit at his home in
-County, bringing his lady with
him. He closed by alluding to the
garden seeds, of which he stood in
A few days afterwards, a package
from the Hon. Mr. Sumner came to
the old Confed., who lives, by-the-by,
in a log-cabin, about ten by twelve
feet in dimensions. The honorable
gentleman was delighted to hear that
a distant unknown friend, far ofl'iu
Virginia, had boen watching in hope
and with approval, his humble efforts
in public life. He regretted that the
pressure of his many engagements
would not, perhaps, allow him to !
embrace Mr. -'s kind invitation.
He was happy to be able to send the
seed, and would willingly serve him
in any other way.
The "hunted loyalist" sowed the
seed, and is waiting to see what will
come of them. His letter, no doubt,
is in Mr. Sumner's scrap-book, and
will probably come up in the course '
of some future Senatorial debate.
How JOHN C. CALHOUN WAS OUT?
WITTED.-An interesting letter ap?
pears in the St. Louis Republican.
Ex-Senator Jones, in a recent com?
munication, said that John C. Cal?
houn did not deliver the speech
which he had prepared against his
(Jone's) territorial bill-"I having
had the tact to have the same called
up and acted upon during bis ab?
sence from the Senate Chamber."
The writer in the Republican says
that the "tact" employed was this:
"The Hon. George W. Jones, or
the General, as he is more familiarly
known at home, was and is a great
ladies' man. Knowing the opposi?
tion to his 'territorial bill' on the
part of Mr. Calhoun, and that a
speech from that distinguished states?
man would defeat it, ho set his wits
to work to procure the absence of
Mr. Calhoun when the bill would be
called up. To accomplish this he
paid very marked attention to a lady
relative of Mr. Calhoun then at the
capitol, and was so kind, polite and
entertaining, that she, feeling under
obligations to him for tho same, in?
advertently expressed the hope that
circumsti.ne.es might throw it inlier
way to res ider him some service.
This was just what the General
wanted, and he immediately said,
'You can, if you will, do me the
greatest favor in the world;' nnd
went on to explain the 'territorial
bill,* and the opposition o? Mr. Cal?
houn thereto. 'Now,' said the Ge?
neral, 'it will come up on such a day:
you be in the gallery, and when I
send you my caril calf out Mr. Cal?
houn and, on some pretext, keep him
out for an hour or two.' She con?
sented and carried out the arrange?
ment, and during that absence the
bill was passed, and Mr. Calhoun
didn't have an opportunity to op?
pose. That, Mr. Editor, is George
W. Jones' 'tact.' "
A Yirgiuia negro boy, who profess?
ed to be dreadfully alarmed at the
cholera, took va the woods to avoid it,
and there was found asleep. Being
asked why he went to the woods, he
said, "To pray."
"But," said tho overseer, "how is
it that you went to sleep?"
"Don't know, massa, 'zactly," re?
sponded the negro, "but 'spec 1 must
have over-prayed myself."

1 A (blaker had his broad brim j

did a little in that way. "Then,"'
said he, taking a half dollar from bis

diaphoretics; making it the most effective
?invigorating, rejuvenating and blood

lu introducing this new and extraordi?

i Many diseases, ami, too, many complaints,
I which have their origin in a vitiated state
j of the blood, are treated only as symptoms
and results: whereas if the remedy had
been applied to enrich tho blood and ren?

have been removed. Thc Queen's Delight
is offered to tho afflicted as a sure remedy
for those, diseases arising from an impure
condition of the blood, lt has a direct
and specific action tipon that fluid, and
consequently renders tho blood pure. It
is said, on nigh authority, that "mau no
sooner begins to five than ho begins to
die, and that the characteristics of the
living organism aro ceaseless change and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless thc
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must be the cause ol
innumerable ills and constitutional disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption, Inflamma?
