When I was Young.
Ono morning, as I chanced to pass
Close by a cottage gate,
An aged matron in the shade
Sat talking to her Kate.
The frost of agc was on her brow,
And garrulous "er tongno,
As she compared tho doings now
W'th those when she was young.
When I was young, young gals were meek,
And looked round kinder shy,
And when they were compelled to speak,
Thev did so modestly.
They staid at homo and did the work,
Made Indian bread and wheaten,
And only went to Sabbath school,
And sometimes to night meeting.
Young children were obedient then,
'And had no saucy airs
They minded what"their mothers said,
And learned to say their prayer?.
But now-a-days they know enough
Bet?re they know their letters.
And young ones that can scarcely talk
Will contradict their betters.
Young ladies now go flirting round,
And looking out 1 >r beaux,
And scarcely one in ten is found
Who makes (jr mends her clothes.
When I was young, if a mendiant failed,
He shut up house and hall.
And never ventured out till night,
If he ventured out at all.
His wife sold out her China plates,
His boys came home from college,
His gals they learned to cook and bake,
And wash and such like knowledge.
But now-a-days, when a merchant fails,
They say he makes a penny,
nis wife don't have a gown the less,
And his daughters just as many;
He r''1 is his horse, he drives his gig,
He .rinks the choicest wine,
His . .'e goes to thc opera,
And he asks folks to dine.
When I was young, crime was crime
It had no other name
And when "twas proved against a man.
He had to bear the blame:
They called the man that, stole a "thie f."
And wasted no tine feeling;
Wdiat's now called "netty larceny,"
In my day was called stealing."
They did jot make a reprobate
The theme of song and story,
As if the bloodier was his deed,
Thc brighter was his glory.
And when a murder was done,
Could they the murderer lind,
They hung him as they would a crow
A terror to his kind.
But now-a-days, it seems to me,
Whenever blood is spilt,
The murderer has our sympathy,
Proportioned to his guilt.
And when the law has proved a man
To be a second Cain,
A dozen jurors will be found
To bring him in iusaue.
A Picture of u. Thousand.
We find the following in an ex?
change without credit. It is a very
interesting incident, -well told:
When Sherman's army entered Co?
lumbia, there lay upon a bed of sick?
ness, in a hospital, the widowed
mother of two little girls, who, in?
nocently and in blissful ignorance of
their sad situation, amused them?
selves with children's sports in tho
place of privation, sorrow and pain,
to which their poor mother had re?
treated as the only refuge in her
helplessness. She came from Geor?
gia to attend her husband, a soldier,
who was sick in the hospital, and
who was soon relieved from misery
and dread scenes to come by death.
His poor wife soon took his place in
the sick list, and her only children,
the two little girls, remained as guests
of this place, where infancy was so
strangely associated with disease
with all its horrors, and became
familiar with Death, who, attended by ?
famine, maintained his hideous vigils
over the sick, wounded and dying
The thunders of tho approaching
army, the roar of flames, the ringing
of bells, the falling of houses, the
bursting of shells, and tho general
clamor of panic, distress and grief,
so shocked tho feeble sick woman in
the hospital, that she died from grief
and fright, bestowing a last glauce,
in utter despair, upon her two little
children, whose fate it was to be ^eft
at such a time amongst strangers, far
from home and perfectly helpless.
Who can tell the anguish of that
poor mother at passing away from
the world and leaving her tender off?
spring to the mercies and chances of
that perilous day! It was indeed a
mercy that the pang and the agony I
The mother died, and was buried
by order of Gen. Sherman, who also I
ordered that the two infants should |
be sent to the asylum. A general j
famine followed in the march of that
general officer, and there being no?
thing wherewith to feed the inmates
of the asylum, there was no recourse
but to send them away. Hero was
another phase of that extreme human
misery which chills tho blood even to
read of. Tho feeble, the sick, the lanie
and the halt, and the helpless who !
found refuge in that asylum, wen; to 1
go forth, as there was nothing there
to feed them. Where were they to
go? and what to do? What became
of them all, none can tell. Death
ended the sorrows of many.
In the midst of this sad comma
nity were tho two motherless girls, j
mere infants, unconscious of their lot.
People came from all quarters to sec
what could be done foi- the dispersing
household. Among those who came
on this errand was a lady of great
worth and refinement, who was once
mistress of a mansion, where all that
wealth, and elegance, and taste could
contribute to comfort and enjoyment
was gathered together. She had fled
from the line estates of her husband
in Beaufort, and the fair and rich
domain shu looked oh as hers was
now parcelled out amongst her late
slaves. Living in what may bc call?
ed poverty in Columbia, she yet
needed sonic assistance in her house?
keeping for herself and family, and
? repaired to tho asylum to obtain, if
possible, a servant girl. There her
eyes were attracted by the two little
girls, thinly clad, sitting in a corner
on the sunny side of the house,
on a chilly April day, hugging
each other to keep warm. They
were remarkable for their beauty,
and very symmetrical aud deli?
cate figures. The lady made
inquiry and learned their history.
Her heart yearned towards them; but
what could she do, in her poverty?
Contemplating them in their forlorn
condition, yet so bright and so un?
conscious of their fute, cheerfully
endeavoring to borrow from the sun
that warmth which man's inhumanity
had deprived them of, she was op?
pressed with the forco of the tender
sympathy which she felt she was too
poor to gratify. She turned away
abruptly and hurried towards her
home. But ? those two tender and
bright faces-those two babes, with
neither home nor relative, were before
her. She could not shut them ont.
Her pity and sympathy grew as she
widened thc distance between her
and them, and at last, completely
overcome hy her solicitude, she turn?
ed back and in the multitude of
miserables sought tho children, and
taking one in each hand, walked up
with them, in delight.
Since then, until a few days ago,
that noble lady has maintained these
children under all the privations of
her own situation. She had sought
in vain for a place of refuge for them.
Some two weeks ago she wrote to
Miss Emily Mason', now in Baltimore
-that indefatigable lady who had
done so much to relieve the unfortu?
nate and afflicted of these times
inquiring if some provision could not
be made for these children. Miss
Mason had filled all the places she
succeeded in finding, and had written
a letter saying that nothing could
then bc done for them-when, as it
were by Providential design, a letter
came from St. Louis, offering places
for twelve Southern children, the
means for the support and education
of whom had been provided by the
liberal citizens of that citv. Miss
Mason, with a delight all who know
her can well imagine, re-opened the
letter to her Columbia friend and
wrote a postscript, in which she was
requested to send on "Beulah*' and
'"Lula"-for these were the names of
the motherless little fawns-at once,
that they might go on to the homes
just found for them. Poor children!
who will not ofter up a prayer that
they may now be happy for life?
This is, indeed, a picture of a
thousand, and no one can read the
facts, we are sure, without being im?
pressed more forcibly with the
solemn duty at such a time as this of
contributing to the aid and succor of
those brought to dependence and
destitution by the events of the war.
The Adornment of the Head-The
GRAY HEADED people have their locks
.....stored by it to tho dark, lustrous,
silkeu tresses of youth, and are happy.
Young people, with light, faded or red bair,
have these unfashionable colors changed
to a beautiful auburn, and rejoice. People
whoso heads are covered with dandruff and
humors, uso it. and have clean coats and
clear and healthy scalps. Raid-headed
veterans have their remaining locks tight?
ened, and the bare spots covered with a
luxuriant growth of nair, and dance for
joy. Young gentlemen use it because it is
richly perfumed. Young ladies use it be?
cause it keeps their hair in place. Every?
body must and trill use it, because it is the
cleanest and best article in the market.

The Great American Blood Purifier.
TUB PEN'S DELIGHT !
riTIli; QUEEN'S DELIGHT, thc gr. ut
JL American Alterative and Blond Puri?
fier, is thc most perfect vegetable com?
pound of alteratives, tonics, diuretics and
diaphoretics; making it the most effective
invigorating, rejuvenating and blood
cleansing cordial known to the world.
lu introducing this new and extraordi?
nary medicine to the public, observation
butds us to remark that too lillie attention
is paid to the "life of all flesh," the blood.
Many diseases, and, too, many complaints,
which have their origin in a vitiated state
, of the blood, are treated only as symptoms
anil results: whereas, if the remedy bad
been applied to enrich the blood and ren?
der it pure, both cause and effect would
have been removed. The Queen's Delight
is offered io the afflicted as a sure remedy
for those dise ases arising from an impure
condition of the blood. It has a direct
and specific action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders the blood pure, lt
is said, on high authority, that '.man no
sooner begins to live than he begins to
die, and that the characteristics of tho
liviug organism aro ceaseless change alni
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
sues with material, it must be the cause of
innumerable ills and constitutional disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders, Consumption. Inflamma?
tions, Fevers, ?fcc. Lifo and health is only
to be maintained by the circulation of pure
Wo therefore advise every one whoso
blood is in the least vitiated by indulgence
or excess, and whose constitution is im?
paired by disease and is suffering from
Rheumatism, Liver Complaint, Consump

the Skin, Pimples, Blotches, Pains in the
Dones, did Ulcers, Syphilis and Syphilictic
Sores, Indigestion, Inflammation of the
Bladder and Kidneys, Pains in thc Rack,
General Debility, and for all complaints
arising from deficiency and poverty of
blood, to use the Queen's Delight.
Females of delicate constitution, suffer?
ing from weakness and depression ot mind
in consequence of those complaints which
nature imposes at thc period of change,
havo a pleasant and sure remedy in the
Children whose fair and ruddy complex?
ion gave carly promise of health and
beauty, but too soon become blanched ?ind
pale by some hereditary taint of the blood,
will have the rich boon restored by using
the Queen's Delight.
The unaccliaiated and persons traveling
into warm countries will lind tho Queen's
Delight a great protection from all malari?
ous affection and diseases which originate
in a change of climate, diet and life.
Tho extraordinary and .unprecedented
cures performed by tho Queen's Delight
Compound is attracting the attention of
every one, not only at homo, but abroad.
'The merits of this compound aro being
felt and appreciated everywhere. Hear
what they say of it in New 'Yolk: "It is a
remedy id' much importance and value,

Its properties as a femedy were first in?
troduced to the notice of thc profession by
Dr. Tkos. Young Simons, of South Carolina,
as early as lb'iis, as a valuable alterative re?
medy in syphilitic affections, and others re?
quiring useof mercury. Dr. Simons' state?
ments have been endorsed and extended
by Dr. A. Lopez, of Mobile, and Dr. H. R. ,
Frost, of Charleston. From thc reports in
its favor, there seems no reason to doubt
