The following linea, says the New Or?
leans Weekly Mercury, were composed by
a yonug Confcdorato soldier who WS'B
wounded in our battles for the "Lost
Cause." This gallant youth, from Mary?
land, has been lying for more than four
years upon his back, unablo to elevate his
body higher than when resting on his
elbows; out still his cheerfulness and
equanimity aro moat remarkable. Now
living in tho city of Charleston, under the
benevolent caro of ono of the noblo wo?
men of our Southern land, ho has educat?
ed himself in several languages, and occa?
sionally commits his thoughts to paper.
His modesty has prevented his appear?
ance in print. On tho occasion of the
establishment of the "Soldiers' Widows'
Home," in that city, ho produced tho fol?
lowing beautiful verses:
Cold winter blew his howling blast,
The rain poured down in swollen
Dark night his wing o'er earth had cast,
As I walked in the land of dreams.
The shades I saw of fallon braves,
They, all appeared in saddest mood;
And walking by thoir empty graves,
In silent grief they seemed to brood.
To this pale throng I drow me near;
Accosting one, with trembling voice,
I asked of him why they were drear,
And why they did not all rejoice.
For on the list of glory bright
Impresaed was overy hero's name,
And with the story of our fight,
Was hanging in tho houso of fame.
In eaddcat tone, the form replied:
"Can we do else than restless roam,
When those for whom we fought and died
Are wand'ring earth without a home?
"With griof wo seo our loved ones woep;
For broad we hear our children cry;
Say, can we then in quiet sleep,
When those we love of hunger die?
"A poor reward to fallon bravea,
For all tho glory they have won,
To placo upon these lowly graves
A massy, cold and polished stone.
"If you would to us honor give,
And drive away our mourning mood,
Go cheer our loved ones when they grieve,
And give them raiment, ahelter, food!" .
Thus ends the bravo Ina gloomy talk
His bloody shroud around him draws; I
Takes up again his dreary walk
With heroes of tho "Fallon Causo."
With louder voice I called again:
"Your country, know, is not unkind,
For those you love from wind and rain
THE WIDOWS' HOUE a shelter find!"
Then loy lit np each ghostly oye,
Each laid him in his narrow tomb;
They hear no more their loved ones cry,
Safe sheltered in THE WIDOWS' HOME,
And in their graves a mystic ray
A soothing, softened glory-shed,
Like in the East at brena nf day,
Ero PhobuB ahowa his Haming head.
Then winter blew his howling blast,
Tho rain pour'd down in swollen
Black night his wings on earth had cast,
And I came from tho land of dreams.

BUTLER BOTTLED BY DICKENS.
During the reading of Mr. Diekens,
on Tuesday night, at Carroll Hall, a
coincidence occurred thero that
turned quito a titter, if not a laugh,
on Gen. Butler. It occurred during
tho reading or description of "Bob
Sawyer's party at his lodgings," from
Pickwick, in the quarrel scene bo
tween Noddy and Gunter. Tho fol?
lowing ?B the reading:
"I request tus.t you'll favor me
.with your card, sir," said Mr. Noddy.
"I'll do nothing of tho kind, sir,"
replied Mr. Gunter.
"Why not, sir," inquired Mr. Nod?
"Because you'll Btick it up over
your chimney piece, and delude your
visitors into the false belief that a
gentleman has been to seo you, sir,"
replied Mr. Gunter.
"Sir, a friend of mine shall wait on
yon in the morning," said Noddy.
"Sir, I'm very much obliged to you
for the caution, and I'll leavo par?
ticular directions with tho servant to
lock np the spoons," replied Mr.
Previous to this tho hero of Fort
Fisher was all attention, with out?
stretched neck, as though fearful of
losing a single word, but when it
casie by spowus, his hoad bobbed
down, like a terrapin's being jerked
into itu shell, and an unmistakable
titter and smile went over tho audi?
ence, as though tho spoons reference
?was very apropos.

Tire DEATH PENALTY.-Tho New
York Tribune says that all tho pro?
gressives favor tho abolition of the
death penalty, and thinks it au evi?
dence of barbarism not to do so.
Howover that may bo, it seems that
where it has been abolished it has
agniu to bo resorted to. A lotter
from Basle says the Graud Council of
tho Canton of Fribarg, has just re?
established tho penalty of death,
which was abolished twenty years
ago. Out of eighty-live votes, fifty?
one supported tho re-introduction.

AN ascription of praise more worthy tho

or monuments of atone, is tho voluntary
testimony of a grateful people. A thou?

yield a nilling and a thankful tribute of
praise to tho merits of that incomparable
HEINITSH'S QUEENS DELIGHT.
These are tho liviug trophies:
"Snatched from tho curso diaeasc has
To apeak the triumph? skill has wrought."
In tho brief poriod of twelve months,
over 3,000 casca have been treated so suc?
cessfully as to entitle it to bo tho wonder
of tho age.
For debility, prostration, nervousness,
mental depression, impaired digestion,
loss of appetite, reatlesness, want of vital
forco ana low spirits, it is more invigorat?
ing and strengthening than all the com?
