' ' The Mermaid and:Liberty.
Under the ocean waves afar,
Beyond the light,qf sun or star,
A mVrmbid sat in he coral hall.
And saw the telagraph cable fall.
Past down the golden ledges it came,'
Slowly down like a line ot flame,
Breaking the branches from the trees,
That grow in groves under the seas.
Lodging Tiere on a mountain tall,
Leauinar there, irom an island wall ;
Sweeping for leagues the ocean oor,
Scaring'the monsters up to the shore.
The mermaid7 dressed her shining hair,
'With comb of pearl, and flowers as fair
,As those that bloom sn.nearthe skies ;
Sun, moon, an J stars, are in their eyes.
She looked and'wandcrect what could be ,
Falling so softly iu the sea.
Had the earth been ved"with the tide ?
LWas this a gold chain" for hir bride ?
Or was it a chain of Slavery,
Dropping slowly into the sea ?
Then leaping, from.her CrpthiCidoor,
,Sh lighted on the ocean floor. '
With her small hand 8he broke the chain ;
There are no slaves in her domain ;J
So now the silent cable lies
Broken, like England's sacred ties.
Were it to speak with tongue of flame,
It would proclaim" Brittania's shame;
When next it speaks its words will be,
'Ameiicaand Liberty !"
Angels of light spread you t bright wings
Near me at morn ;
Nor.in thestarry-everrnor midnight -deep,
From all the dark spirits of unholy pow

And take my part.

One of the most strongly marked char

She is invariably associated in my mind
with a high neck frock, plain collar and
the neatest of neck-ribbons, ornamented
with the most modest little brooch in the
world. I never knew a nice girl who dis

The juggler calls the little girl to him and
begins to play with her. at first gently,
then a little more boisterously until at
last he thrusts her ro'Jghly under the bask

until she is good. The little girl begins
to whine and remonstrate from underneath

her, and tells her to hold her tongue, etae
he will whip her ; but the little one is un
appeased, and the quarrel goes on, increa

a paroxysm of anger, draws his sword, and
thrusts it wildly into the basket. The
screams of the ehild are heart-rending
her yells and cries agonizing; but the jug
gler stabs and subs again, and works his
sword about the wicker-work in uncontrol
lable and fiend fiendish fury. The childs
voice ceases, and just a few heavy sobs are
heard, then, some fainter means, fainter
fainter, as the Jast gasps of a murdered
child would be and then all is still. The

fgirLast Sunday a week ago a party
of Clevelander8, on a Aisit to Independence
were informed that one Phillip Herz, a far
mer in that town, had after whipping a
little six year old boy, a son ot nis con
fined him for four days and nights in the
hog pen without food, except what he
might find in the trough ; evidently for
the purpose of killiag the child. They
proceeded to the spot and found the poor
o in a horrid condition, emaciated to a
mere skeleton, hia clothes torn to shreds
and covered with filth, with hardly enough
life in him to stand up. The child was
rescue'd by them and delivered to a aeigh

plaint of one ef them, to Justice Nichols,
a warrent was issued for the apprehen

however, got wind of it and eluded the
vigilence of the officers, who returned the
nrocoss to that effect. From words spo
ken by him before his departure, and let
ters left behind him, it was suspected that
that the man had done himself some inju
ry. Search was made yesterday, and his
body found in the woods near his late res
idence. He had shot himself with a dou-ble-barrell
shot-gun, one of the charges

sown in the fall, because it is the natural

wheat, By turning under the stubble of

A writer in the Oskaloosa Herald
gives his method of of preserving sweet
potatoes through the winter, nis plan is
as follows : I use dry sand to pat them
up in it don't matter how the sand was
dried in a kiln, a log heap, or in the sun
so it is dry that is all that is required... Ir
prefer drying it in a log heap, as it costs
at least four times less, and is just as good,
ind a family that has a little room with a
stove in in it, may keep a box or two, with
eight or ten bushels in them, Jwithouc any
inconveinco or consequence. The boxes
must be raised a few inches frem the
floor, and they must not be nearer than
four inches from the wall. Fill the hexes
with potatoes, and then put sand mntill
they are covered.
