BY CXUCLES DICKINS.
The streets are smothered in the snow,
The. chill-eyed stars are cleaving keen
The frozen air, and, sailing slow,
The white moon stares across the scene.
She waits beside th e fading fire
TChogaspirig laper flickers low,
i-And drooping down and rising higher,
rHer shadow wavers to and fro.
No foot disturbs the sle'eping floor,
No motion Bave the wintry breath
That stealing through the crannied door,
Creeps coldly as a thought of death.
It chills her with its airy stream,
0 cold, 0 careless midnight blast!
It wakes her as her fevered dream
Hath skimmed the sweetness of the past.
She stirs not yet. The night has drawn
. Its silent stream of stars away,
And now the infant streaks of dawn
..Begin to prophecy the day.
She stirs notyet. Within her eye
The half-crushed tear-drop lingers still;
, She stirs not, and the smothered sigh
Breaks, wave-like, on the rock of will.
O heart that will unheeding prove,
" r 'O hear t that must unheeding -break !
How strong the hope, how deep the love,
c That burn's for faithless folly's sake 1 ,
At midnight on my lonely beat,
When shadow wraps the wood and lea,

Of one at-home that prays for me.

Around her sheds a moon-like grace.

The N. Y. Independent has an able ar
ticle entitled " The Southern Frenzy and
its Causes." It is already too concise to
epitomize, and too lengthy to publish.
The writer considers that there is a conta
gious frenzy existing in the South, which
resembles psycological phenomena her to
fore witnessed in the " Kentucky jerks,"
and in the Lycanthropy of Central Eu
rope, &c. And he gives instances prov
ing its characteristics, which are Bummed
upas follows: rapidity, fury, utter' reck
lessness, both of reasons and consequen
ces ; and a tendency to spread itself by a
a kind of contagion.
He Bays: ((The cause of this strange
and startling development at the South is,
in one word, Slavery! That, and noth
ing else, has trained generation after gen
eration to yield to each fresh impulse of
passion , to acknowledge no responsibility
for their opinions, and no obligation to
form correct ones; to make their own
fierce wills supreme not over others only,
but over their own conviction and con
sciences ; and to domineer with fury over
everything that interposed any obstacle to

We repeat, the true Conservative -is that
man who does all in his power to preserve
lawxind order. A Conservative is ''one
who aims to preserve from ruin, innova
tion, injury, or radical change ; one who
wishes to maintain an institution, or form
of government in its present Btate." That
is the received and accepted definition of
the term. We ask our readers to answer
for themselves which class of men can
with propriety be termed Conservative, and
law and order loving. Mr. Lincoln and
the armies in the field are striving sole'y
to preserve the institutions of the country
as handed down to us by our fathers.
Those who fight against the laws, and the
Constitution are certainly radicals, if the
race is not extinct. A few whining sym
pathizing rebels seek to take advantage of
the feeling against extreme fanatics, by
denouncing all as radicals who favor the
strict, impartial enforcement of the laws

The Cap of Liberty:-The explanation

compromise has been consented to. We
have suppressed the utterance of our no
blest convictions, done all that we could to
stifle the irrepressible instincts of humani
ty, lest by some word or deed we might
endanger the safety of the Union, and the
result has been contempt on the part of the
South for the Union saving North and the
present rebellion. A new trial of the ex
periment can' succeed no better, for the
people of the loyal States, if they would
retain the slightest approach to self respect,
cannot possibly make greater concessions,
or do more than they have already done to
render practical and permanent that union.
The experiment has failed, as fail it always
will and always must. It is not constitu

as some of our Europeon friends pretend,
that has failed : but the attempted union
of freedom and slavery, of two essentially
hostile and mutually repellant systems in

Excuses for Using Tobacco. In one
of our neighboring towns the lads of a
school acquired the habit of smoking, and
resorted to the most ingenius methods to
conceal the vice from the master. In this
they wore successful until one evening,
when the master caught them ai it, aiil
stood before them in awful dignity.
" How now?" shouted the master to the
first lad, " how dare you be smoking to
bacco?" "Sir," said the boy, UI am subject to

the last boy, " what disorder do you smoke
Alas! all the excuses were exhausted;
but the interrogated urchin, putting down
his pipe, after a farewell whiff, and looking

cleanliness of the iecoe of sheep pastured '
upon the broad, elean prairies to those
kept where thickets of shrubbery and mu-
derbrush abound or cover a large part of
the pasture. As to the increased profits-'
bleness of the work for the next few years,
we quote a few suggestions from the annu
al report of the Secretary of the Vermont4
Agricultural Society, which are also appli-'
cable to the fanners of Kansas and the
Blae Biver Valley :
"The price of wool for the nex few'
years, reasoning from analogy, must be
high. The cotton crop will not be plant
ed extensively at the South as it has beem
in years past; and in many States it will
not be planted at all. Should the rebellion
not be suppressed within another year, as
very likely it may not be, very little of the
cotton crop of last year will find its way
to market for the next eighteen months ;
and when we consider that the people must
be clothed, that use of the woolen fabaics
during the present high price of cotton
goods is much more economical ; that the'
million of men in the 'field wear and de
stroy, in weight, a third more of clothing
than in the peaceful avocations of life j
that at the South all the carpets have been
cut up into blankets and that very little
of the womout'stock will be supplied un
til peace is restored from the fact tha
the South has not even the raw material to
replenish with the whole seceeding
States not producing as much wool as tho
State of Ohio alone ; it can be seen that
not only during the war, but at its close;
when the million of men in the army re
turn to their former employments, discard
their military clothing and dress as they -were
wont in broadcloth and doeskin, the
price of wool must continue above the av
erage price for the last five years. In
time of war, the quality of wool is a mat
ter of no email consequence. Vermont"
has limited herself to the production1 of
the finest wools. But the wool most in de
mand now, and bringing the highest
prices, is a coarser grade. The query may
well be equally profitable for us to turk
our attention to the production of a some
what coarser staple and at the same time
furnisb richer and higher priced muttom
for the market" ..

Fvel. It is a common mistake among
farmers to burn wood the same year it is
cut. Two cords, of dry Wood will give
more heat than three cords in an unseason
When the moisture in the burning wood
is being evaporated, it has the power of
taking up heat ; its own bulk is increased
one-five-hundredth part for every degree of
heat added, and it travels up the chimney
or stove-pipe with the heat. f wood be
cut two years before its use, it will be found
much more economical; all the heat will
be radiated in the room, or at least a very
much larger portion than when it is ac
companied by moisture.
When under steam boilers, green wood
will not make steam, at least in the boiler,
for the heat is used in converting the water
of the wood itself into steam; it paes
through the flues into the chimney, with
eut heating the boiler.
This is true not only of the wood, but
also in degree of coal, especially bitumin
