High hopes, that burn like stars-? ublhnic,
Go down the skies of Freedom;
And true hearts perish in the time

Put never sit we down and say,

We walk the wilderness to-day

Our birds of song a-re silent now ?
There are no flowers blooming;
But life burns in the frozen bough,
And Freedom's spring is coming;
Ane Freedom's tide comes up always
Though we may strand in sorrow,
And our good hark -aground to-day,
Shall tloat again to-morrow!
Through all the long, drear nigh! oi'y.irs.
The p. ople's cry ase? nded,
And earth is wet with blood and te aw.,
Ere our meek BU?? ring's ended;
The few shall not forever sway,
The many toil in sorrow:
The bars of Hell are strong t< -day,
But Christ shall rise to-morrow.
Though hearts brood o'er the past.--our

Lo! now the day bursts up the ; lars -
Lean out your souls and listen!
Thc world rolls freedom's radiant way
And ripens with our sorrow
Keep heart! who bears the cross to-dag
Shall wear the crown to-morrow!
Oh, Youth! flame earnest; still aspire
With energies immortal;
To many a heiven of desire
Our yearning opes a portal;
And though Agc wearies by the way,
And hearts break in the furrow,
We'll sow the golden" grain to-da^- _ , ."

Joy suns the clouds of sorrow;

WHEN AND WHERE DOES THE DAY
BEGIN?-As wo travel Eastward, the
day begins earlier; near the Equator,
starlight appears an hour earlier for
each thousand miles going East.
When it is sun-rise in New York, the
people of Europe have had sunlight
for many hours, and the Californians
are still in their beds dreaming. Evi
dcnthy, the day has a first beginning,
and at the Eastward. But how fal?
and where? What are the people
"who first see the light of Monday
It is the suu which brings tho day;
where does he first bring Monday?
If we could travel with him, we might
find out. Let us suppose the case, i
We will take an early start; at sun?
rise, on Sunday morning, with the
sun just at the point of peeping over :
the horizon behind us; wo travel ]
Westward. As we go, the people ;
give us a Sunday greeting. We bring
Sunday with us to Pittsburg, St.
Louis, Salt Lake, San Francisco. At
San Francisco, our faithful chrono- ;
meter informs us that we have been
on the tramp about five hours. But
wc started on Sunday morning, and
it is Sunday morning still. We go
on, still on Sunday morning. Will
this Sunday morning ever end? The .
quiet Pacific knows very little of
Sunday, or any other day, and our
question scarcely receives au echo for
reply. When we get to Yokohama,
in Japan, or Shanghai, in China, we '<
search for some Yankee, wide awake ,
in the early morning, and we aro told .
for the first time that Monday has
come. Everywhere now we bring
Monday, and in twenty-four hours by ?
tho chronometer, after starting, we
are in New York again, and find the
merchants taking down their shut?
ters, and the Monday newspapers |
telling us what has happened during j
our absence.-Scientific American.
A PICKLED BABY.-The Salt Lake
Telegraph tells the following story:
A little four-year old, living in a
neighboring ward, has a habit of get?
ting into babyhood scrapes every day.
At one time he tips over the work
box, and then come down ali the mul?
tifarious "fixins" of the womenfolks;
this done, he climbs into the wash?
tub, gets wet, and bawls out furiously
nntil -mamma runs to get her "darlin
baby" out of the muss, which is no
sooner done than the young rascal
pulls the cat all round the room by
the tail, making poor pussy mew in
the most agonizing manner. But
"mamma's little pet" got into a very
bad serape, the other day, whereby
he got badly pickled. Having made
his way to the pantry, and observing
a large jar of pickles, the little fel?
low thought ho would have at least
what big folks call a square meal, so
ia went the head in the jar of pickles,
but out the head couldn't get, and as
a consequence, tho "darlin" set np a
very lively and interesting noise,
which attracted the frightened mo?
ther, who found the young hopeful
just in the rix described. Amidst
screams and eries, the jar had to be
broken before the baby's head could
be extricated, which having been
done, "little pickle," as he is now
called, cast ely looks at his ma, and
then at the pickles, exclaiming, "O,
mamma, I'se never dowin to det
pickled aden!" y

Oue day last year. Mr. Greeley

"William the Third!"' Yetuuybody
familiar with his chirography, if his
inky jerks can be so designated, will j
readily seo, not only .how such a mis- ;
tako could be made, but how it pro- j
bably would be. Again he wrote
about "three men in, buckran," and i
the prosaic type-setter got it "three

that two-compositors of sagacity and 1

A Cor.i> Sr.EHiu RIDE.-The Potts- ;
ville Journal, of lest week, publishes ,
an account of a sleighing party of :
ladies and gentlemen from St. Clair
having been attacked on the monn- ; ;
tain, as they were going from that ,
place to Mahony City, and robbed.
The Journal said: It may Seem in- ;
credible, but it is positively stated
that the robbers stripped the occu?
pants of the sleigh of their clothing,
leaving nothing but the under-cloth?
ing of the women and the Buffalo
robes that were in the sleigh. Tho j
robbers compelled them to turn back ;
and return to St. Clair. We have ;
since learned that the occupants of j
the sleigh were a party of married
men with women other than their !
wives, who were out for a good time
"on the sly," thinking their spouses
knew nothing of it; and that the I
"highwaymen" were the wives of the i
aforesaid gentlemen, who, havinggot"
wind of the delinquency of their
liege lords, had disguised themselves i
and laid in wait for tho party, deter-1
mined by this means to avenge them
selves and punish the offenders.
The following is from Theodore
Tilton's last letter tc the Independent: j
"I have found Western landlords so
sociable, so fond of company, so
abundant in hospitality, as to insist
on putting another man in the same
bed with you to keep you in counte?
nance. A friend of mine in Kansas
once told me that he once asked for a
room in a Missouri hotel, and the
landlord replied: 'Yes; but a train
arrives after midnight, and there may
be another passenger to sleep in your
bed.' 'Very well,' replied my friend, !
resignedly. Shortly after midnight, !
his door was opened, and in stepped J
a tall, gaunt, grim bushwhacker, who j
in a few minutes got into bed with |
his trousers on. 'Stranger,' exclaim?
ed the unprepossessing personage to
tho first occupant, 'did you hear ?
about that murder in .the bayou?**
'Yes,' was the reply. 'Well, I'm the 1
man what did the killin'. ' !
A good Methodist minister, out |
West, who lived on a very small sa- j
lary, was greatly troubled at one timo j
to get his quarterly instalment. He
had called on his steward a number!
of times, but at each time he had been
put oil' with some excuse. His wants
at length became urgeut, and he went
to the steward and told him he must
have the money, as his family were
suffering for the necessaries of life.
"Money!" replied the steward, "you
preach for money; I thought you
preached for the good of souls."
"Souls!" replied the minister, "I
can't eat souls, and, if I eould, it
would take a thousand auch as yours
to make a siugle meal."

The Great American Blood Purifier.
THE QUjWS DELIGHT !
mHE QUJ EN'S DELIGHT, the great
_|_ American Alterative and Blood Puri?
fier, is thc most perfect vegetablu com?
pound of alteratives, tonics, diuretics and
diaphoretics; making it the most effective
invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
cleansing cordial known to the world.
In introducing this new and extraordi?
nary medicine to the publ observation
l< ads us to remark that too ... attention
is paid to the "life of all flesh," thc blood.
Many diseases, ami. too. many complaints,
which have their origin in ti vitiated state
of the blood, aro treated only as symptoms
and results; whereas, if the remedy had
been applied to enrich th? blood and ren?
der it pure, both cause and effect would
have been removed. The Queen's Delight
is offered to the afflicted as a sure remedy
for those diseases arising from an impure
condition of thc blood, lt has a direct
and specific action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders tho blood pure. It
is said, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than ho begins to
die, and that the characteristics of the
living organism are ceaseless change and
ceaseless waste." lt is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must be tho cause of
innumerable ills and constitutional disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption, Inflamma?
tions, Fevers, fte. Life and health is only
to be maintained by the circulation of pure
We therefore advise every ono whose
blood ia in the hast vitiated by indulgence
or excess, and whose constitution is im?

ol' "SOMETHING TO WEAR," are respect
I fully and earnestly invited by the ladies of
the Industrial Association to call at their
Work-room, in the Female Academy, and
examine the articles which they have now
ready for sale. Some one will always be
found ready to exhibit the ready-made gar?
ments ami to receive orders from those
who may wish to have work done neatly
The object of the Association is to fur?
nish constant employment to those who,
having been impoverished by the war, now
depend on the needle for daily bread.
Does not such an object commend itself to
tho hearts of our citizens? Or must the
anxious applicants for work be told that
ourpeople prefer Northern-made garments,
and that there is, therefore, no more work
for limit? Shall it bo said that such an
Association as this cannot be sustained in
the capital of South Carolina? Jan b>
