In the gloamings, when ny darlings,
In their dun ty rohes of white,, .
By the mother's knee have murmured, ?
"Jesus, keep us through theuight."
To their little orib, white curtained,
Where the upper shadows fall,
Nestled in my arms, I take them
Through the long, unlighted hall.
Swift, in- rayless silence, round us
Close the deepening shades of night,
"Dark!" my blue-eyed Bertie whispers.
Hall in awe, and half in fright.
. '.^?arki" the baby brother echoes,
nrWith a hush upon his glee;
Then my Bertie, nestling nearer,
Whispers softly, "Papa, see!"
Blessed* blessed faith of childhood!
Father, grant this faith to me;
Dark the shadows round me gather,
But I know th a s Thou dost see.
A DETECTIVE'S EXPERIENCE,
It was a dark, rainy day. The dawn bad
stolon in through ashen clouds, aud a dense
fog wrapped around tho houses and lay upon
the streets like a winding sheet. A misty
wind, steely and cold, now and then, would
-whistle along the wide avenue and 1 attie the
shut tories? casements of the old brick house.
A wild, blustering day was that Tuesday,
twenty years ago; and many a heart shrank
with a strange feeling of horror as they read
in the morning Picayune of the tragedy far
down on Chartree street. It wasons of those,
densely crowded districts for which certain
localities in New Orleans were then noted.
Mr. I- and myself, said Mr. F
had been sent for at an early hour, and were
among the first to reach the placo, where a
?oung girl, in the very flush and beauty of
er tender womanhood, lay murdered. On a
low cot, the crimson stain on sheet and pil?
low, and the dark hair thrown back like floss
of silk, the dead girl lay. Underneath the
linen sheet was traced the outliuo of tho
slender limbs and rounded form. Full of
grace and exquisitely fashioned had thc
beautiful creature been in lifo. Even with
the seal of death stamped upon face aud
form, she looked like a child asleep. One
almost "oxpected the glorious eyes to open
the long black lashes to lift from the waxen
oheek. A smile yet lingered about tho lips,
as sun-shine plays on a cloud sometime*s
and the olive tint of the brow and neck still
looked like life.
The tears fell like rain as we lookod upou
the dead-this nameless stranger from a
foreign Land. No ono knew whence sho
came; none knew her history. Tho house
itself had been long deserted-a ruinous
building given up to decay. But one night
the neighbors heard cries of distress, and
the piercing wail of a woman in terror thrill
out ou the night air; then lights flashed on
the windows, and the patter of rdnuing feet
were heard on tho stair. Still later iu the
night, the sound of low music carno out on
the silent Btreet-and then sobbings, like
some one crying-and after this all grew
dark, and the quiet unbroken. But in
the early dawn some ono wont into the
old house to search out tho mystery. High
up they found a locked door, which defied
all efforts to open it. But they broko it in
at lost, and saw a poorly-furnished room,
and a dead girl lying in tue cot. There was
nothing in the house outside of this room to
show it had ever been inhabited. There was
no wardrobe, no dresses; nothing but the
crimson sheets and the linen gown; aud on
the floor, near the bed, a bracelet set with
diamonds; but it bore no initial mark-a
silent jewel, beautiful os tho atm it encircled.
There was no clue to bo found, unless the
bracelet would lead to one; a curious trifle,
fashioned like a golden serpent, and the
jewels flashing like eyes from the head
even the tongue had a diamond flame, and
gleamed like a jet of fire.
. The girl had been stabbed to the heart,
and had died without a struggle There
was an awful mystery about it I could not
unravel. To me it appeared there had been
a crime committed which, if revealed, would
disclose some terrible purpose, that now
could not bo perceived. But nothing could
be don? as yet. We must wait and watch,
and this we did.
I hud heard of a sloop landing below the
cUyi -aj few days before, nuder circumstances
that created some suspicion. I determined
to look up the parties who had seen it, and
seo if I could find somo trace that would
holp my investigations. From this source,
I learned that an old man and woman and a
yoong girl lind landed, and the vessel bad
immediately gono back to sea. Those who
had observed its strange conduct then re?
membered to have seen it again on the
morning of the homicide, at the same
place, and the old man and woman wero
taken on board, but this time they were
alone-only the two-the girl was left be?
hind! The fisherman and his wife who told
me this, told mo, too, that tho young lady
was richly clad, aud the old people appeared
to be her servauts. What could it mean?
On this clue, I went to Havana. Some?
times I am led by a strange foeling which
acts as a sort of foreshadowing of what is
to come. It was so now. I knew by a sort
of intuition, that I should find out some?
thing about it then. Nor wero my impres?
sions deceptive. I did ascertain that such a
vessel had loft that city, ostensibly on a
pleasure excursion; but in reality to spirit
away an heiress to an immense estate. Tho
old man and woman had been bribed by a
treacherous uucle to put her ont of tho way.
They had persuaded her to go with them by
representing to her the evil designs of her
relative, and professing to bo her friends.
In this way, they suceoedediu bringing her
here. Their plans had been craftily con?
trived, and but for the strange whim that
led me to Havana, would have proved suc?
cessful. The false uncle was arrested and
tried by a Spanish tribunal for abduction
and murder; the punishment was death.
told immagfcWly bow the exime was aeeom
plished^.jV\- r , n va
It was a strange, wicrd tale, and my heart
vet shivers wheu I recur to the rocital. It
will do no apod to repeat it. - The young
stranger is dost. Her fate was sad; her life
withered and dead in its yoong spring-time;
buff tears ot strangers fell on her grave and
immortelles were laid on her bosom by ten?
der hands. The green grass covers the sod
beneath whieh abe sleeps, and the rose that
blooms at ber head scatters its perfume on
the air-a stranger's memorial to the beau?
tiful dead.-New Orleans Picayune.
"GOOD FRIDAY."-Immense numbers of
Christians in all parts of the world com?
memorate, by solemn service and fastings,
to-day, the Dav of the Crucifixion. It de?
rives, if possible, an additional solemnity,
this year, from tho fact thut it is not only
the commemorative day fixed hythe rubrics
of tho churches, but, by the cor --utatioj
of chronologists, is the actual a roary.
Tho festival of Easter and th?. I^ac of Good
Friday are what are called movable days,
determined by their approximation to the
vernal equinox, and vary, from timo to
time, with the age of the vernal full moon.
This year Good Friday falls on the 2Gth of
March, and Easter Sunday on the 28th of
March; and the latest and now accepted
calculation of archaeologists and astrono?
mers is that the crucifixion took place at
Jerusalem on Friday, tho 26th of Maroh,
and the rising from the dead on the 28th
day of Maroh, in the year 28 of the com?
mon ern, corresponding to the year 4741 of
tho Julian period. It is, therefore, not
merely a symbolical or commemorative
celebration, in which Christians take such
profound interest to-dny, but an actual an?
The same authorities place the birth of
tho Saviour in the 4707th year of tho Julian
period. The current year is tho 6582d of
that period, and as the reckoning is of years
current, and not of years elapsed, we are in
the 187Gth year from tho birth of Christ,
iustcad of tho 18G9th year, as is commonly
written.-New Orleans Picayune, March 26.
Timmni.E DEATH.-A man named Clark,
was burnt to death, about seven miles from
Purdy, a few nights ago, says the Bolivar
(Tenn.) Bulletin. It seems that Clark and a
compauion wero playing cards ou the night
of tho fatal occurrence, and that they re?
tired at rather a late hour. Subsequently,
they were aroused from slumber by tho roar?
ing of the burning building, which bad
tukeu fire from somo uukuown cause, and
both rushed for a point of safety. Clark,
in bis hurry, forgot some six or seven hun?
dred dollars, which he had placed under the
head of his bed, and, after getting clear of
tho dauger.s, wont back to the room for his
mouey. As he stepped into tho room, tho
floor, which had boeu burning from beneath
for some time, suddenly gavo way, and he
was thus plunged into a lake of lire. His
body was burnt to a crisp.
CUBE FOR INGROWING NAILS.-It is stated
that tho cauterization by hot tallow is an
imm?diate cure for ingrowing nails. Put a
small piece of tallow in a spoou, and heat it
over a lamp until it becomes very hot, and
drop two or three drops between the nail
and granulation. The effect is almost ma?
gical. Pain and tenderness are at once re?
lieved, and in a fow days the granulation all
go, leaving the diseased parts dry, so as to
admit of being pared away without auy
inconvenience. The operation causos little
if any pain, if the tallow is properly heated.

THE Commissioner of Agriculture, in bis report
for thc year 1805. speaks as follows:
"There can be no doubt of tho general adulte?
ration of all malt liquors. In England and other
countries, where heavy penalties aro imposed, and
an increasing vigilance practiced to detect and
punish such frauds, by a system of inspection of
all malt liquors manufactured beforo exposed to
sale, tho practice is very common. How much
moro in this country, where tbero aro no laws on
tho subject, and no officer to carefully analyze tho
products of thc brewery? Some years ago, Pro?
fessor Mapes, of New" York, analyzed the beer
from a dozen different breweries, and all wore
found adulterated with noxious substances. It is
said that tho salo of drugs to brewers, is a profit?
able part of tho trade. This is perfectly infamous.
Cocculus indicus, (fish-berry,) mix v?mica, (dog
button, from which strychnine is obtained,) are
f onioof tho delectable substances found in boer!
These are potont poisons, and the brewer found
uriiig them should bo drowned at once in one of
his own vats. Tho British Parliament passed a
law to prevent this nefarious business. The fol
lowing is an extract: 'No druggist, vendor of or
dealer in drugs, or chemist, or anv other person,
shall sell or deliver to any licensed brewer, dealer
in or retailer of beer, knowing them to bo snob,
or shall sell or deliver to any person on account
of, or in trust for, any such brewer, dealor, or re?
tailer, any liquor called by tho naroo of or sold for
coloring, from whatever "material tho sumo may
be made; or any material or preparation other
than utiground brown malt, for thedarkoning the
color of worts or beer, or any molassos, vitriol,
honey, quassia, cocculus indicus, grains of para?
dise, Guinea pepper, or opium, <>r any extract or
preparation (d' molasses, or ?ny article or prepa?
ration to bo used in worts <',i beer for or as a sub?
stitute for niait oi hope; and if any diuggist shall
Offend in any of these particulars, such prepara?
tion, .Vc, shall be forfeited, and m?y be seized by
any officer of excise, and the person so offending
shall forfeit, jioe hundred pounds.'
"Under this law, very many druggists and brew?
ers were brought to grief, and yet the practice
continues. UIIIOBS the American public aro ready
to admit thc immaculate purity and innocence of
American brewers, thtiy must bo content, while
drinking their beer, to cherish the belief that they
aro at the same timo guzzling soroo uatootio poi?
son or damaging medicine. lu view of the unpre?
cedented growth of tho barley crop; of the great
increase of tho nnmbnr of maltsters and brewors;
of the vast unknown quantities of beer that aro
drunk in every city and almost evory town on tho
continent ; R is tho dictate ot sound wisdom, that
the attention of legislators should bo called to
thc subject of tba adulteration of our malt liquors,
and eev*r? penalties should bb Inflicted as a pre?

Has been in operation but four years, during
which time it has assured a larger amount than
any Compauy in the United States, during a coT
rcspouding period of existence. One OT tho chid
causes of ita organization, waa the forfeiture by
several Northern Companies of the policios of
Southerners, during the war. The leading ollicora
of this Company protested against this injustice,
and on its consummation, withdrew and orga?
nized tho "GLOBE MUTUAL," on principles more

This Company has, iu its gnaranteo fund of
