LAY OF THE LONELY.
BY LILY MAY.
1 am lonely, I urn lonely,
Ahenvy Weight of pain,
Unwelcome nnd uncalled for,
Comes stealing through my brain;
For I cannot keep the thoughts hack
That recklessly will flow,
And with their wildners ever bring
A heavy weight of wo.
Heel like one just waking
From a wild fevcr'd dream;
Which like the flickering lamp light,
Leaves but n fitful gleam;
For fancy's swift winged pencil
A phrenzied "measure keeps;
And oround my heart's green tcn-rils,
Wild desolation creeps.
1 am lonely, I am lonely,
The slightest breath has stirr'd,
In my heart, deep thoughts of sadness,
No mortal ear hath heard.
1 have no power to quell them,
I would not if I could,
8uch themes are followed ever,
By feelings pure, and good.
My heart was once filled with gladness,
I thought it could not boj
Life's silver stream would ever bring
A bitter draught to me;
The surface calm and unruffled,
So smoothly did it flow,
I knew not of the tumult,
That lay conccal'd below.
But 1 am lonely, lonely now.
Tin fountain has been stirr'd;
Not by coldest looks, an action,
Or harshly spoken word;
But a theme of deepest import,
That spurns the heart's control,
Hath roused the fires within my breast,
And sunk into my soul.
But I will not thus be daunted,
Itl yield not to dispair;
For wc feed the dying embers,
To mako a brighter glare;
And I never could entirely
Believe what 'cr I'm told;
For they always run together
The gravel and the gold.
What tho' my heart is lonely now,
.nd feeling's fount o'erlluws;
I would not have it coldly turn
To flee another's woes;
For well 1 know that gentle art.
And kind words can refrain
The. wild Upheaving! of the heart,
And lighten half the pain.
Then let mo shun deceitful wiles,
And sens, les lolly spurn;
1 care for naught can I but feel
Quiescent in return;
And all such utter loneliness
With heartfelt joys will blend;
For calm reflections ever provo
A blessing in tho end.
Pleasant Valley, Ohio, Feb., 1853.
Lines on the death of Josephine Palmer.
We stood beside thy couch of pain.
We saw thy suffering brow;
Wc listened to thy words of love
We seem to hear them now.
They breathed of peace beyond the grave,
They spoke of Heaven and love;
Thy spirit seemed to feel the bliss
Prepared for it above.
We saw a smile illume thy brow
When death his seal had set,
A smile whose heavenly radience we
Can ne'er, O ne'er forget.
For angel bands were waiting then
With quivering wings of love,
'To waft thee to their happy home,
Thy home in Heaven above.
We think we hear the angel's harp
Thrill a loud welcome strain,
When thy freed spirit took its flight
From this sad world of pain.
We hear the welcome of the Lord
"Well done inr servant, thou,
Thy pain is o'er, thy victory won,
Come to my bosom now.
Coma where no cares can enter in,
Come lo thy homo of rest.
Meet with thy loved ones gone before,
And be forever blest."
How can we mourn thai t-he haB joined
Tho white robed -eraph baud!

THE WORTH OF HOURS.
Belirvc not thnt your inner eye
Can ever in just measure try
Tho worth o( hours ns they go by;
For every man's weak self, alas!
Males him to see them while they pass,
As through a dint or tinted glass.
But if, with earnest care, you would
Mclo out to each its part of good,
Trust rather to your after mood.
Those surely are not fairly spent.
That leave your spirit bowed and bent
In sad unrest and ill-content.
And more, though free from seeming harm,
You rest from toil of mind or nrm,
Or slow retire from pleasure's chnrm
If then a painful sense como on
Ol something wholly lost and gone.
Vainly enjoyed, or vainly done
Or something from your being's chain
Broke off, not to be linked nenin
By all mere memory can retain
Upon your heart this truth may rise
Nothing that altogethe r dies
Suffices man's just destinies.
So should we lice, that every hour
May die as dies the natural flower,
A self-reviving thing of power;
Thnt every thought and every deed
May hold within itself the seed
Of future good and future need;
Esteeming sorrow, whose employ
Is to develop, not destroy,
Far better than a barren joy.
THE "OLD GUARD" AT WATERLOO.
The fol low inr; description of tho last charge
by tho Old French Guard ut Waterloo, is do
rived from a French work entitled "Histoire
de la Garde Imperiale, relne par M. Emilc
Marco de Saint Hillaro," and is interesting at
the present moment.
During the day, the artillery of the Gunnd,
tinder Drouet, maintained its old renown: and
the Guard itself had frequently been used to
restore the battle in various parts of the field,
and always with success. The English were
fast becoming exhausted, and in an hour more
would doubtless have been forced into a
disastrousdefeat, but for tho timely arrival ol
Blucher. But when they saw him with his
thirty thousand Prussians approaching, their
courage revived, while Nopoleon was filled
with amazement. A beaten enemy was
about to form a junction with the allies, while
Grouchy, who had been sent to keep him in
check, was. nowhere to be seen. Alas! what
great plans a single inefficient commander
In a moment Napoleon saw that he could not
sustain the attack of so many fresh troops, if
once allowed to form a junction with the
allied forces, and ho determined to stake his
fate on one bold cast, and endeavor to pierce
tho allied centre with a grand charge of tho
Old Guard, and thus throw himself between
the two armies. For this purpose the Imp
rial Guard was called up & divided into 2 im
mense columns, which were to meet in the
British centre. Those under Reille no
sooner entered the lire than it disappeared like
mist. The other was placed under Ney, 'the
bravest of the brave,' and the order to advance
given. Napoleon accompanied them part of
the way down the slope, and halting for a
moment in a hollow, uddressed them a few
words. He told them the battle rested with
them, and that he relied on their valor, tried
in so many fields. "Vive 1 'Empereur'"
answered him with a shout that was heard
above the thunder of artillery.
The whole continental struggle exhibits no
sublimcr spetacle than this last effort of
Napoleon to save his sinking Empire. The
greatest military energy and skill the world
possessed hat! been taxed to the utmost during
the day. Thrones were tottering on the
turbulent field, nnd the shadows of fugitive
kings flitted through the smoke of battle.
Bonaparte's star trembled in the zenith
now blazing out in its ancient splendor,
how suddenly paling before his anxious eye.
The intense anxiety with which lie watched
advance of that column, und the terrible
Buspense he suffered when the smoke of battle
wrapped it from sight, and the utter depairof i
his great heart when the curtain lifed over a j
fugitive army, and the despairing shriek rang
out, "The Guard recoils!' "Tho Guard i
recoils!" make us for a moment forget all tho i
carnage, in sympathy with hid distress.
The Old Guurd felt the pressure of the
immense responsibility, and resolved not to
prove nnworthy of the great trust committed
to its care. Nothing could be more imposing
than its movement to the assault. It had
never recoiled before a human foe, and the
allied forces beheld with awe its firm and
steady advance to the final charge. For a
moment the batteries stopped playing, and
the tiring ceased along tho British lines, aa,
without the beating of a drum, or a bugle
note to cheer their steady courage, they
moved in dead silence over tho field. Their
tread was like muffled thunder, while the
dazzling helmets of the cuirassiors flashed
long streams of light behind the dark and
terrible mass that swept in one strong wave
along. The stern Drouet was there amid
his guns, and on every brow was written tho
unalterable resolution to conquer or die. r The
nexl moment the artillery opened, and the
head of that gallent column seemed to sink
in the earth. Rank after rank went down,
yet they neither stopped nor faltered. Dissolv
ing squadrons and whole battalions disappear
ing one after another in the destructive fire
affected not their steady courage. The rank
closed up as before, and each treading ovit
his fallen comrado pressed unflinchingly
The horse which Ney rode fell under him,
and scarcely hau he mounted another before
it also sank to the earth, and so another and
another, till five in succession had been shot
under him. Then, with his drawn sabre, ho
marched sternly at the head of hi column.
In vain did the artillery hurl its storm of iron
into that living mass. Up to tho very
muzzles they pressed, and driving the ar
tillerymen from their pieces, pushed on
through the English lines. But just as the
victory seemed won, a file of solders, who had
laid flat on the ground behind a low ridge ol
earth, suddenly rose and poured a volley into
ihelr very faces. Another and another
followed, till one broad sheet of flame rolled
on their bosoms, and in such a fierce and
unexpected flow that they staggered back be
fore it. Before the Guard had time to rally
again and advance, a heavy column of infant
ry fell on its left flank in close and deadly
volleys, causing it, in its unsettled state, to
swerve to the right. At that instant a whole
brigade of cavalry thundered on the right
flank, and penetrated where cavalry had nev
er gone before.
That intrepid Guard could have borne up
against the unexpected fire from soldiers they
did not see, and would have rolled hack the
infantry that had boldly charged its left flank;
but the cavalry finished the disorder into
which they had been momentarily thrown,
and broke the shaken ranks before they had
time to reform and the eagles of that invinci
ble Guard were pushed backward down the
slope. It was then that the army, seized with
despair, shrieked out, "The Guard recoils!
The Guard recoils!'' and turned anil fled in
wild dismay. To see the Guard in confusion
was a sight they had never before beheld, and
i t froze every heart with terror. Still those
veterans refused to fly; rallying from their
disorder, they formed into two immense
squares of eight battalions and turned fiercely
on the enemy, and nobly strove to stem the
reversed tide of battle.
For a long time they stood and lot the can
non balls plow through their ranks, disdain
ing to turn their backs on the foe. Slichell,
at the head of those battnllions, fought like a
lion. To every command of the enemy to
surrender, he replied, "Tho Guard dies, it nev
er surrenders," and with his hist breath be
queathing this glorious motto to the Guard,
he fell a witness to its truth. Death travers
ed those eight battallions with such a rapid
footstep that they dwindled away to two very
soon, which turned in hopeless daring on the
overwhelming numbers that pressed their re
Last of all but a single battallion, the de
bris of the "column of granite" at Marengo,
was left. Into this Napoleon Hung himself.
Cambronne, its brave commander, saw with
terror the Emperor in its frail keeping. Ho
was not struggling for victory, he was intent
only on showing how the Guards should die.
Approaching the Emperor, he cried out, "Re
tire! Do you not sec that death has no need
of you!" and closing mournfully yet sternly
round their expiring eagles, those brave
hearts bade Napoleon an eternal adieu, and
flinging themselves on tho enemy, were soon
piled with the dead at their feet.
Many of the officers were seen to destroy
themselves rather than survive defeat. Thus,
greater in its own defeat than any other corps
of men in gaining a victory, the Old Guard
passed front the stage and the curtain drop
ped upon its strange career. It had fought its
THE NEW EMPRESS.
A correspondent of the New York Tribune,
who is well posted, gives that, pa per a lengthy
and somewhat detailed sketch of the life and
career of the new Empress Eugenia, ol
France. We transfer a portion of it to our
columns, ns there is a very general curiosity
to know all about the matter by our very
inquisitive people. If this sketch is not a
caricature, all will ndmit that two very sin
gular sort of geniuses have very strangely
met on the throne of one of the greatest and
most powerful kingdoms of the earth:
For some years the young Countess de
Teba or Montijo, who is now about twenty
five, has enjoyed at Madrid the reputation of
an exceedingly fast woman. Tall, graceful,
of statuesque symmetry of person, with lux
uriant auburn or rather red hair, a pale com
plexion, which has lately stood in need of a
little rouge, great electrical eyes of a brown
so deep and radiant as to pass for black, rath
er long and aristocratic features, a large bul
exquisitely sculptured nose, a lovely mouth
and teeth of dazzling whiteness, she is ntypc
of admirable beauty, which a languid and
blase nir hardly diminishes. Endowed with
uncommon wit and spirit, she speaks French,
English, Italian and German with as much
fluency as Spanish. A proficient in exer
cises of strength and address, she rides with
the boldest, and drives four-iiirhand with the
At Madrid it was the habit of our heroinf
to bid defiance to public: opinion as the whirl
mi;ht seize her. She used to appear alon
in public, driving her own carriage. Sh(
had a separate establishment in her mother'i
palace, inviting and receiving company with
out consulting her mother, and often refus
lug access even to her relatives. Once Jiei
mother forced her door, despite the retflon
strances of her servant, who protested tha
the Countess wuntcd to be alone. To he
great amazement, she found that her daugh
ter was missing. For twenty-four hours thi
young lady did not appear, and when she re
turned cooly informed her ufflicted parent
who had loudly expressed her fears that then
had been an elopement, that she had beei
away on an errand r
1 On another occasion, the whim takes ho
' to pay a special compliment to literature, am
her carriage stops at tho door oSenor Es
: oosura, one of the most prominent of liviiij
Spanish authors, who was some years sinci
a Minister of the Crown. "Good morning
' my dear sir," was her Bulutation to the as
I tonished litterateure; "I have come to break
fast with you in order to have a talk on lit
eralure und poetry.'' A few weeks later Es
I cosura gave a dinner to a number of literar;
men, artists, und actors, at which '.lie Count
ess was present without her mother or an;
other lady as chaperone. She was the lit'
of the party, making speeches and givin
; toasts with tile loudest. Aiming tho guest
J was a third rate French actor, named Lafei
Here, who had great sucrcss in flMrid. He
was from the Theater Historique in Paris.
She took a fancy to him, and had a long con
versation with him. When the time for leav
ingaffiMM!, "Well," said the Countess, "mi
irrnpBs here, nnd I will take M. Laferfiere
to his hotel." The young man was a Kttle
abashed at such a courtesy from such a lady; '
but sin? insisted, and they departed together.
Mile, de Montijo was also a great sports
woman, and very popular, of cou.rc, among
the terreadors, or bull-fighters. She was pre-i
sent at all the bull-fights in Madrid, where
she used to wear the most magnificent cos-i
tume of a Maja de Sivilla, something like
that of Mile. Soto, in the ballet of the same
name at Niblo's, but much more character
istic. A very large and high comb at the top
of the head, with wreaths of roseB falling!
each side, mixed with the hair; a profusion
of diamands, necklaces, bracelets and rings;
very showy and tight waist, cut low in the
neck, and with bare arms; a very short skirt,
open-worked stockings with colored embroid
ered slippers. When she appeared in the!
circus she was saluted by all the terreadors, I
and exchanged with them the most cordial'
greeting. "To thee, Countess de Teba, I ded-1
irate my love and prowess!" they would ex-1
claim, wafting kisses toward the young lady.
"Bravo, Antonio! bravo, Jose! Well fought,!
my boys," and other words of the most llbe-l
ral approbation, were the answer. In all
such scenes there was a considerable display
of Spanish frankness, which would have
been very shocking to the sense of American j
Like all fast women, our Countess found a .
matrimonial establishment difficult to ob-1
tain. Once she courted the Duke of Ossuna, j
the richest grandee of Spain, but he declin- :
ed the honor. Disappointed in this scheme, I
I she recci1. ed the addresses of I young noble 1
' of Ccst'le, and was nearly engaged to marry j i
him. But she could not help flirting at the1
same time; and one, when this young man j
was in the drawing room, she went so far in j i
j her coquetry with another that the former j
j aspirant for her hand seized a chairandthrew
I it at her head, saying, with the most appro
bious epithets, that he would not marry her
for the world. The insult was resented by
the last object of her attentions, and two or i
three duels were the consequence. The re
sult of all these acts of dashing eccentricity, i
' and of these scandals, and of others quite as i
notorious, was, that it would have been little
less than impossible for Mile, de Montijo to
marry a gentleman of her own rank in Spain.
For three or four years past, M'lle de Mon- I
tijo has been wont to spend the winter in i
Paris, where her conduct has been much
j more circumspect than at Madrid. Still, she
has never gained nn entry into the aristocrat
( ic circles of the Faubourg St. Germain. But
she was compensated for this exclusion by
the cordiality with which she was received
at tho Elysee, and by the profound impression
she made upon its master. From the first
she inspired Louis Napoleon with an ardent 1
passion, which justified her resolution to be
come his wife and share the glories that des- I
tiny had in reserve for him. In accordance l
with this determination, she steadily rejected i
other proposals, without regard to their mag
nificence. It was currently reported at Paris
a few months ago, that her reply to his pro
testations of love had been: "Prince, I am
of too good a family to be your mistress,"
and, if the saying be not exactly true in fact,
there is no doubt that it is so la spirit. Lat
terly the attentions of the lover have increas
ed in zeal, and the position of the lady in his
court has been more marked than ever. She
was the heroine of every festival; during the
recent excursion of the court to Compiegne, j
she stood at his head as the bright, particular1
star of the imperial admiration, and there,
were not wanting those who predicted her
marriage with Napoleon. Still the lover
hesitated. He adored, he worshipped, yetj
he didn't come up to the mark. But the.
Countess wus not discouraged. She is too!
skillful an actress to be at fault in such an j
emergency. She announced the approaching i
departure of herself and her mother for Mad
rid. The result was the proposalof marriage,
the nppointment of the day, the annunciation
to tho Ministers and the world that the Count
i ess was to be his wife, and no doubt ere this
the lioune of Madrid and the grand daughter
of the former U. S. Consul at Malaga has be
come Eugenia, Empress of the French. It
la said a gipsey one predicted that she would
be elevated to a throne, aftdr the fashion of
tho famous prediction of the negrcss to Jose
phine. It remains to be seen how far the
' future will complete the parallel between the
wives ol the two Napoleans.

f ier a long, a labored, and wo suppose a pro

THE SCHOOL BILL.
This important measure has passed the Se
nate, been read twice in the House, and re
ferred to the committee of the whole. Much
interest is taken in this matter throughout
the State, and it will doubtless receive that
consideration which its importance demands.
It provides that each township in the State
shall form but one school district, divided in
to as many sub-districts as necessary; that
on the second Monday of April there shall be
three school directors elected in each sub
district, who shall employ teachers, contract
tor building school houses, number the schol
ars, &c; thatone director from each of these
sub-district", together with the township
clerk, shall constitute the Board ol Education,
who shall be a body Corporate, and be invest
ed with the title and care of all school houses
and school properly in that township have
the control of all central or high schools;
create, change and alter the sub districts at
pleasure; forward to the county auditor the
number of scholars in their township, and
have a general charge over the educational
interest! of the township; that the county
auditor shall forward to the State Auditor an
abstract of all school returns from the several
townships in his county; that the State Au
Jitor shall annually levy and asses two mills
upon the dollar, on the grand list of the taxa
ble property of tho State, for a State common
school fund, which sum, when collected, shall
be annually distributed to the several coun
ties of the State in proportion to the enume
ration of scholars, and be applied exclusively
to the support of common schooK
The bill also provides for schools for color
id children when the number exceeds thirty
in any township; for the election, at the town
ship elections, of a State Commissioner, who
shall perform the duties of State Superintend
ent of common school?, and for the establish
ment of school libraries by the levying of a
tax of oni-tenth of a mill on the dollar. The
several acts creating special school districts,
md the act for the better regulation of schools
in cities, tie., are left untouched by this bill,
Such are some of the general features of the
bill as it passed the Senate. Its heart its
real Mm principle, is the provision for levying
a tax of two mills on the dollar for a conv
mon school fund. This, as the grand list now
stands, would raise very nearly one million of
dollars a little over one dollar per annum for
each person in the State between five and
twenty-one years of age, and not much, il
unv, exceeding the amount now raised in va
rious ways for the support of schools. If an
sfficient common school system is to be sup
ported at all, it cannot be done for a less sum
than here proposed. The question is one of
school system or no school system, and be
tween these alternatives no patriot will pause
to choose. Society has the same right U;
take measures to preserve its continued well
being as an individual has, and the most effi
cient, if not the only measure to accompli.sh
this object, will be to secure the proper culti
ration of the intellectual and moral natures
of those who will soon form both its body and
soul. Such a result, we believe, will be pro
duced by the system contemplated by the bill
now before the House, and we therefore hope
it will become a law. O. S. Journal.
