POETRY. "THE DAY IS GONE."
By the author ot. Martha Hopkins.
"The day is gone "Longfellow.
The day Is done, and dorkncss
U From the wing of night is loosed ,
)1 As a feather is wafted downward
From a chicken going to roost.
I see the lights of the baker
Gleam through the rain and mist,
And a feeling of sadness comes oct me
That 1 cannot well resist.
,. A feeling of sadness and longing.
That is not like being sick,
And resembles sorrow only
As a brickbat resembles a brick.
Come, get for me some supper
A good and regular meal,
That shall soothe this restless feeling,
And banish the pain I feel.
Not from the pastry haksrs,
Not from ihe shops for cake.
I wouldn't give a farthing
For all that they can make.
For, like the soup ot dinner, (
Such things would best suggest
Some dishes more substantial,
And to-night 1 want the best.
Go to somr; honest butcher,
Whose beef is fresh and nico
As any they have in the city, ,
And get a liberal sllcs. ;
Such things through days of labor,
And nights devoid of eale,
For Bad and desperate feelings
Are wonderful remedies.
They have an astonishing power (
To aid and reinforce,
And come like the "finally brethren,"
That follows a long discourse.
Then get me a tender sirloin
From off the bench or hook, I
And lend to its sterling goodness i
The science of the cook. j
And the night shall be filled with comfort, j
And the cares with which it begun
Shall fold up their blankets like Indians, j
And silently cut and run.
For the Chronicle.
THE RECLAIMED DRUNKARD.
'Twee evening The solemn grandeur of c
the scenery around cast a saddening Influence '
over the soul. The sun had passed behind J
the western cliffs, and its last lingering ray
cast a tint of pale light over the dark calm .
waters of the lake, and the fitful night breeze .
whispered strange things among the leaves
of the jessamine that hung in graceful lies- "
loons across the open window. The soft
moonbeams stole silently into that cottage 1
which stood by the lake, revealing the forms '
of its inmates. There, pale and sorrow strick- '
en, robed in mourning's sombre hue, sat the
mother: at her side reclined a fair young girl, B
of some twelve summers, one of earth's bright- "
est stars. Nature had penciled, with delicate j
shade, the rose on her cheek, and her bright
and happy countenance told of the purity of
her soul; but her usually mirthful eye had i j
eomething of sadness in it, as, looking from
under the golden ringlets that shaded her 1
pure brow, into her mother's face, Blie said,
dear mother I remember well when we lived
in the city, in such a beautiful house, with
fine marble steps, and every thing so grand, 1
but I love our dear little cottage, I wish you j
did mother, with its sweet jessamines, and
the white wall peeping from the bright green
leaves, and my lovely flower garden too. Oh:
yes, I love this much better than I did out '
home in the city.
My dear Laura, it is not the loss of wealth 1
and luxury that makes me unhappy, for we 1
have still sufficient to maintain us very com- '
fortably; but other troubles of a deeper kind. '
Your brother, you know that he is not with 1
us. Oh! my dear boy, were you but here, 1
this home would be a paradise.
I remember brother Charles too, exclaimed '
Laura, with a tear glistening in berclearblue 1
eye. He often took me with him to the coun
try. We have walked together in the green
fields, and all through the grove, to gather
wild flowers, and we have set for hours be
neath the shade of the tall forest trees, while
brother would relate many anecdotes for our
amusement and instruction. We have often
stood on the summit of some high hill, ad
miring the gorgeous sunset, and then sought
our home when the bright stars were appear
ing, one by one, in the blue sky above us.
Oh, indeed, he was a dear good brother.
Yes, your brother Was natural) noble and
generous but now you in unlike your harp
and play a tune. Music soften the recollec
tions of the past. I feel unusually sad this
evening the hours appear mysteriously long.
I will, my dear mother, with the greatcet
of pleasure: and going to the harp she gently
ran her delicate fingers over the strings.
Sister Mary, will you not sing for me? she
said, addressing a lovely girl of some eighteen
summers, who sat gazing from the window,
wrapped in deep thought. A tear stood in
her large dark eye, and throwing back her
locks of jetty hair, she began in a voiceclcar
and melodious, "my brother has left me."
The rich melody wis sung in a faltering tone,
and the gentle breeze wafted it for away o'er ;
the deep still luke. The last note had ceas
ed to vibrate, and the inmates of that cottage
sat wrapped in their own meditations, gloomy
or pleasant as it might happen to be. All ',
there was silent, yet they heard not the light j
ply of the oar as it dipped in the silvery wa- j
ters. Now it is distinctly to be Been in the
clear moonlight, and anon hid by the droop
ing willows, as they bathe their leafy bran
ches in nature's mirror. The shaded lamp
threw a mild glow of silvery light around th
apartment. Laura had thrown herself upon
the sofa, and for some time had remained per
fectly silent. Mother, at last she exclaimed,
has it not been five years since brother
Charles left us! Yes, my child, five long
years have flown by, and I have no tidings
from my son. Can he have died in a distant
land, without a mother's tender hand to
smoothe his dying pillow, or the'gentle voice
of a dearly loved sister to cheer his lust mo
ments? It cannot be; something from within
tells me that he will yet return. Can it, will
itjbe, that my dear boy may yet return, my
once noble and lovely son! So saying, she
hid her face in her hands, and burst into tears.
Mrs. Mellville was a lady of good standing in
the city of P , of high moral worth and
mental endowment. Traces of beauty still
lingered about her well defined features,
her dark auburn hair was slightly silvered, not
by the blighting frostsjof many winters, but
by sorrow's withering touch. She had three 1
lovely children, Charles, Mary and Laura.
Being early left a widow, the responsibili- I
ty devolving upon her was deeply felt, and I
she earnestly strove to educate her children, I
not only mentally but morally and religiously: I
and having a deep sense of the importance of '
the latter, her'praycrs arose daily for a bless-
ing upon them. Then wonder not at her
sorrowful and dejected air, when her only I
son had fallen a victim to intemperance, and 1
liad deserted her, and gone to follow out his
Jownwordcourse.unrestrained, in? foreign I
He finished his education at an early age, i
with great honors, and returnedjjto his native '
city, flushed with the success of the'past and i
high hopes forhis future aggrandizement and i
honor, to pursue the study of the profession
lie had chosen, and to be a protector and com- t
forfer to his mother, the residue of her days. I
His figure was tall and commanding, with 1
a broad intellectual brow. His mild dark eye '
sparkling with genius, and his generous heart
warmed with affection for those around him. t
He was sympathyzing and liberal to a fault. '
Huving in his possession wealth, talents and
education, he was surrounded by many friends, c
if those can be styled such, who show them- '
selves friends only in the sunshine of pros- 1
nerity, and withdraw when the dark clouds
f adversity o'er cast the scenery around, c
Courted, admired, flattered, hismanifold bless- I
ngs now proved to him a curse. But among I
he many friends that surrounded him there
was one who could, without doubt, be styled d
i true friend. George Fulton attended the P
iume institution, recited in the same classes, "
ind had been a competitor for the honors fl
vith Charles Melville, and was therefore ful- tl
y acquainted with the talents and noble 0
leort possessed by Chnrles, and he loved him l
or his worth alone. Fulton possessed none A
if the advantages of his friend Melville, ex- ri
cpt a good head and generous heart. Know- '
ng his future standing upon the stage of '
ife depended upon an upright and virtuous "J
ourse, he look the first step by associating !
limself with the Sons of Temperance. He d
clt the solid foundation upon which he stood, 1 T
nd wished not to stand alone. With many P
orebodings for the future he observed the ' si
lernicious effects likely to result from the h
ixample and persuasions of Charles' associ- t
tee. Dilligently he sought to prove to him h
he necessity of becoming a member of their
ociety. He urged and entreated him, but o
las! all his efforts proved fruitless. C. fi
ilaced much confidence in his own strength, b
lis friend's advice passed unheeded by. The
riendly glass must be taken, his friends pleas- ! o
d. The weekly club must be attended, he , s
lad to do so, it become a man of his station ,
ind wealth. Unconsciously down, down, the a
asy path to infumy, he trod, until, alus, the K
iabit was formed. He was bound by the d
lellish chains of intemperance. He sunk to ,
i level with the swine that wallow in the t
nire. Friends forsook him, riches going, O
mt his friend George Fulton forsook him not. tl
-Ie made every exertion in his power to savo w
im, but all availed nothing. George's en- h
reaties and his mother's tears added only to tl
he bitterness of his feelings. Stung with M
emorse at his fallen station, and a madening c
;hirst raging within, ho left, as we have sta-
:ed before, for a distant land, where, unre- d
trained, he could indulge his evil appetite, I
ind his heart broken mother left the guy ll
icenes of former days, and sought retirement 5
md repose in an elegant cottage ontheshure
jf a lake, the situation of which was alike h
solitary and beautiful. d
Nature was hushed the hum of busy life r
bad ceased. The streets which but a few
hours before teemed with a living throng t
were now deserted, and in the populous city b
of p naught disturbed the nightly silence, 1
Bave the hurried footfall of some late wan-
derer returning from bis mighnight revels, 11
and the watchman's heavy tread, as he tra- '
versed the now deserted streets. The bright 1
moon riding midway up the heavens lent a '
crystaline luster to the surrounding scenery. 1
Before a large aud costly dwelling in a re-
'tired but fashionable portion oT thecity mlgl
t have been seen the tall figure of a man close
j ly wrapped in his cloak pacing to and fr
with an anguished and uneasy air.
Occasionally the moon shone full in hi
face, revealing, with unerring certainty, thi
I foot-prints of the demon intemperance. Re
morse and agony were likewisedepicted there
He stood before the home of former and hop
' pier days scalding tears traced each othe
j down his haggard face, as he gazed upon thi
. noble mansion. He clasped his hands ii
agony, murmuring, oh! thou home of mj
childhood, thou look'st like a heaven of thi
past: beneath thy roof I have sported in thi
innocent days of youth. There, too, my sis
ters played and sported in gleesome pleasure
They say they are gone, gone away why'
To forget me yes to forget their own soil
and brother! Ah, no, no, would that I coulc
think so; but no, they are gone away to pray
for me, gene to mourn, gone to hide thcit
disgrace. My mother's warnings, her ear
nest pleadings, my sister's tearful face, like
specters they haunt me they are ever be
fore me. Oh! Father of mercies, how wretch
ed and miserable am I! I have lost all, all
as the fool looseth his own salvation. Oh,
fatal cup, it was thou that ensnared me; with
in thee lies the coiled serpent with gleaming
eyes, heaving with fiery breath sparkling
bubbles to the the brim, waiting to destroy
the reckless being who venture to approach
thee. Then with agitated steps he hastened
away, as if to flee from the reproach of con
science. In an apartment which bore undoubted ev
idence of having seen better days, in an ob
scure boarding house in the city of P sal
two young men, George Fulton and CharlH
Melville. Five years had made but liftle dif
ference on the appearance of George Fulton
perhaps more thoughtful looking no other
change. His highest aspirutions hud been
realized. He occupied the station that his
talents and moral worth claimed for him.
Ever watchful, he had been the first to dis
cover, in the wretched outcast, his friend
Charles Melville. True to hiB pledge, and to
the promptings of a humane heart, he was,
vith all his former assiduity, seeking to re
:laim him from the degradation and miserv
nto which he had fallen. Charles sat b
he table, his head resting on his hands be
ore him lay the pledge, opposite sat George,
votching with intense anxiety all the various
:hanges of his countenance. He had almost
exhausted his eloquence urging upon Melville
he importance of putting his name to that
He now sought by gentle words to awaken
oftened remembrances in his darkened mind.
Melville, little thought I, a few years ago,
vhen we parted at College, to see you in the
alien condition that I now find you. How
ery different were our situations then. I,
i relatives, no friends, but littlo wealth,
:ast upon the wide cold world, without one
o direct, advise or rejoice with me, I stood
ilone amid the crowds. You returned to
vealth, friends and an affectionate mother
:nd sisters. They welcomed you with their
miles and blessings, bestowing upon you
hat warm love which a mother and sister a
one possesses to bestow, relying upon you
vith true heart-felt confidence. Your wid
wed mother looked upon you as a protector;
vith your orphan sisters, you occupied the
loublc station of father and brother. How
'ou returned their love and confidence, your
iwn heart can answer best. Here is tho
iledge, sign it, and return to your heart-bro-:en
Charles took the pen with a trembling, but
etermined hand, and put his name to the
aper. It is done! he exclaimed, while a ray
f intense satisfaction played over his squalid j
sutures. Go, foul destroyer, I have lasted (
liee for the last time yes, the last. I feel

sing and tuking his hand, how can I thank
ou! Me could say no more his feelings
tioked further utterence, and the strongman
ept like a child. At length recovering, he
icclaimed, but I cannot yet return to my
eat1 mother, I cannot go to her a beggar. !
'ho last dollar of my estate is spent, I am 1
cnnyless. My squalid nppeurence would

George, your request to hear a description'
f the maimer In which I have Iptnt the Inst'
ve years of my life, at some future duy shall
0 fully granted. At present my feelings'
'ill not permit me to live over again, years
f naught but folly and vice. Of my first
teps to ruin you are fully aware. Your
arning voice often sounded in my ears, even
mid the boisterous uproar ot the midnight
Iveli but think not that during the many
ays of crime and folly, conscience, that ever
ukeful monitor, slept. No, its prohings ol
IQ drove me almost to desperation, and how
ftcn in my better moments have I resolved
) forsake my wretched course, and dash a
iiy forever that blasting cup. But in those
ours no friend was near like you, to hand
ie pledge, and e'er I sought it, it was too
ite. No, I acted wrong in first handling the
up, and before I could he released from its
torching chains, I had to drink its bitterest
regs. Why at last I sought my native city,
can scarcely tell, but something from with-
1 whispered that there was salvation there,
ly mother's tearful face arose before my
lental vision, and you stood beckoning me
omeward. Then, scarcely knowing what I
id, I embarked for home. You kuow the
est of my story.
A few months after the above conversation
aok place, in an apartment of a respectable
oarding house in P , George Fulton
night have been Been pacing the room with
n uneasy air, occasionally slopping to listen
s if expecting some one. At length, speak
ng aloud, he said, it is growing late, past
welve. I cannot help feeling uneasy. Ma
ly sharpers are abroad. I must go in search
if him. A heavy hand was laid upon his
ihouldcr; Fulton, exclaimed Charles Melville,
it I hope that you hare no occasion to fear for
k me. I have been but by my old home. I
0 must see my mother and sisters. I will re
frain from seeing them no longer, and you
s must accompany me. We will leave for there
1 early to-morrow. The next day found the
. two friends many miles from the noisy city.
Mrs. Melville's last words had scarcely died
- from off her lips, in reply to Laura's questions
r relating to her brother, when a tall figure
darkened the doorway and before her stood
i her long lost son.
r To attempt to describe that meeting would
be folly, we therefore leave it to the imagi-
nation o! the reader.
Several years have passed since the return
, of that son, and Charles Melville has hourly
! cause to bless the disinterested benevolence
i of the Ami of Temperance, while they have
1 1 had no reason to regret the efforts they made
to save another human being from destruction.

COUNTY COMMISSIONERS, ANIMAL
jmk. Howard: it IB Known to a lew cit
izens lhat unsuccessful efforts have been
made in the past few months to procure the
Court House for the purpose of a course of
! lectures on the science of Animal Magnetism.
But the Commissioners have determined that
it shall not be occupied for any such purpose,
and of course the Sheriff dure not transcend
I am well aware that a difference of opinion
exists as to the facts, philosophy and utility
of this science, but I am not aware that it is
iust in the Commissioners to condemn any
JVw thing, especially if they ore not acquaint-
WK with the thing condemned. It is well
known that the Court House is easy of access
to almost every thing else, decent and vulgar,
solemn and rediculous, grand and light, politi
cal, religious and profane on one condition,
to writ: that the house shall be left in good
order; and it is doubtful whether th-flcsndition
is faithfully complied with at all times. Re
sponsible persons have been willing to obli
gate themselves that the house should be left
in good condition if granted for this purpose;
but they peremptorily refused. It is not out
jpf place to say here, that only a 6hort time
go, an exhibition took place there bo vulgar
that the ladies were insulted and left the
I am satisfied that the objections to Ani-
mal Mogjietism are founded in ignorance of ,
the subject, and therefore are not valid. At
this time thousands of inteHegent and scien
tific men not only believe its facts and utility, ,
but are looking with deep interest to the de-
veloptnent of its philosophy and its applica-
tion to useful purposes. Its facts are no long-
er disputed by sensible men who have taken
the pains to inform themselves. And why
the citizens of St. Clairsville, should be so i
erbitrarily snd unjustly deprived- ,Sfc! facil
ities usually afforded in other places has not
been satisfactorily set forth. Certainly they i
are as competent to care for themselves us the
citizens of Wheeling, Stcubenville or any
other place. Those who are not interested,
need not attend, and those who go for decep
tion, had better stay away, and those whode- '
sire to know all that can be known, should i
have the privilege.
I am aware that much prejudice exists in ,
the community, and that those who have
heretofore attempted demonstrations have )
been denied a fair hearing, and one of them j
shamefully abused, while persons were found t
who did not hesitate to stoop to practice fraud r.
in order to redicule the science. Ii may be
said that those persons were incompetent I
and irresponsible. Admitted if you please! j
Is this any reason why they should not have t
justice? But it does not follow that all others B
are of tho oumo character. And because some
men, puffed up with a little brief authority,
have prematurely decided this question are
those who differ from them to be forever pro- h
scribed, and denied the common privileges L
now enjoyed by their fellow citizens!
If there is any truth or good in the science, ,
it must be by divine appointment, and if by c
divine appointment, pertaining as it does to 4
man, soul and body, it is not only a privilege w
but a duty to investigate it. That the Com
missioners have a right to decide for them- t,
selves none will deny, but their attempt to tl
suppress the agitation of this subject by oth- it
ers, partakes a little of the inquisitional, :nd i
seems somewhat out of place. There would n
be just as much propriety in prohibiting
Methodism, Calvinism, Baptism, Whiggery or ti
Democracy, mere matters of opinion, as there fj
is in prohibiting Magnetism. Indeed there K(
would be 11. ore propriety for these sects and i
parties are already in possession of the means
to accommodate themselves. Things have v,
come to a pretty pass in the 19th century, pt
characterized as it is at this time by the must
wonderful discoveries and inventions contra- n
dieting all former experience, or rather trans- et
ceiding it, when a great natural science, be- ,
lieved and taught as true and nseful by many
of the most learned men in Europe and A
merica, is denied the privilege of a fair open tt
and manly hearing in Belmont County, Ohio, p
in the place commonly occupied for all public p
purposes, und where many things, a thousand .1
limes less useful have been freely presented,
all because two or three County officers have 0
concluded, ex parte, that this science is not a
proper o ne to come before the people. The ,
injustice, unreasonableness, and imprudence ,
of this course are not only highly censurable k
bui too apparent to require much comment.
It is equal to prescribing what men shall see,
hear and believe; a prerogative they would be 0
very unwilling to have exercised iutheirowu ,,
I know that the tendency of the science is
urged against itsdemonstratlon. This is only
done by the ignorant and fearful. If it i
true God is its author; he is responsible for its ,
tendency, ni ue (or Ub abuse. Natural tcien-
ceB tend always to wisdom and goodness) their
pervision produces opposite results. ,
It may be urged that persons will behave d
rudely; admitted. This indieates bad train- ,
ing, loose habits, bad examples, and the need .
of bettor police regulations. In this land ol
liberty, where religious intolerance and dr.-. ,
potisns are prohibited by constitutional gnar-
sntees, certainly men should be allowed to in
vestigate a great natural science without mo
lestation. But whence this tendency to vio-1
lencc! Usually it is aroused into action by j
the remarks and suggestions of men who
would scorn to be caught in the set themselves, j
I do not asy this is true here; but I do say if!
men who ought to know whether magnetism I
is a reality or a fiction, would take the pains
to inform themselves snd give the subject ;
that attention and respect which its facts
challenge from all reasonable and reasoning'
beings, I am satisfied that the same feeling
and conduct wojld be manifested by thatclass
of community which follows where it is led i
or goes where it is commanded. I have
known of several instances where professed
ly pious men have declared in the presence of
"fillo WE of the baser sort" that mesmerisers
ought to be egged, thus commending mob vio
lnce for the suppression ot that which they
could not meet with rational arguments.
In conclusion I add, that I do not claim for !
magnetism ony thing more thon is claimed
for matters of less importance. As long as
the court house is opened for other things not
legitimately connected with its design let no
man be excluded who behaves himself decent
ly, and let every man hear for himself. Let
it be remembered that there are hundreds in
the country who believe in magnetism and
hundreds who desire to investigate it further. !
The partiality of the Commissioners is an in
suit to all that portion of the community.
And now I should not wonder if the doors j
are closed against all in order to keep out this !
one. We shall see whether petty personal
prejudices will prevail over justice and reason, j

WEBSTER AND WIRT.
There is a peculiar and striking difference M
?tween the English and Irish statesman. '
he former use the flowers of rhetoric and
jwer of Logic only to convey great practical
uths. The latter makes use of those truths !
s a foundation for oratorical display. The
reatest speech ever delivered by an English 1
:atesman, was about bread!. The gratest 1
ver uttered by an Irish patriot, was upon the 1
ostract rights and woes of Ireland.
The style of Webster and Wirt are op- '
osites. One massive, grand, original and 1
eculiar; tho other, light, airy sytnpathctical J
ad poetical. Wirt, In the lairylike gor-
eousness of his style, built his orations in j
erfect proportion from the foundation to the
irret. All was symmetry, all was happy J
armony. There was nu fault, or blemish, or
bs.-nee of gruce, or presence of presumption
mar the effect of that exquisite harmony '
hich, blending with tho melody of his ge- 8
nius, made everything beautiful and dramatic
. which he touched. He finiihedashe fsshioned,
he polished as he progressed. The edifice of
his muni grew graceful under his efforts.
Kxqui-ite ond perfect detail kept pace with
his construction. A thousand pillars, niches
and minutely wrought passages filled the
inner temple. Elaborately he engraved
niomcntary reflection upon the passing
thought. He spoke. He enlarged. He
biautifted, and alter his prolific imagination

Web .ter like a giant engaged in the con
struction of his castle, with his massive and
giganticTmind, Would place, now here, now
there, a huge block of ungainly granite.
I The foundation is ronghl great masses of
, thought arc thrown roughly on the earth, as
if by chance. And as the building grows, at
first rude, then gloomy, until in the wildest
grandeur of nature, it overawes and. suUdties
j the mind. The edifice of Wirt is like the
temples of ancient Grecian grace. The mon
uments of Webster like the pyramids. In
depa -tingyears the former with all their grace
fulness are lost in the distance. The latter
in their sublimity seem to grow more sublime,
as their outlines strike the sky. The language
of Wirt moved the sensibilities of his hearers.
The words of Webster sunk into the hearts
and memories of mankind, stirring them in
j their profoundest depths. The mind as
sociates with Wirt his smooth open brow,
curling locks, and worJs of warm, poetic
fondness or playfulness. We seem to see in
Webster the ideal of the God-like and
sublime. Upon the horizon of the past,
prpsent, and future we behold his form,
standing as it were upon the verge of
eternity, with those superhuman eyes fixed
on heaven. We Bee at his feet strewn as
wrecks, the fragments of some great work.
We see in his grasp the ensign of our liberties
and our Constitution. From his grave wo
hear the echo ol his patriotic pyver.
Glad words! The waters dash upon the
pfow of the gallant vessel. She stands' ou
the deck and the winds woo her ringlets as

In thought there are warm kisses on her lips,
soft hands on her temples. Many arms press
her to a throbbing heart, and one voice sweet
er than all the rest whispers, "My child!"
Coming home! Full to bursting is her heart,
and she seeks the chin to give her joy vent
in blessed tears.
Coming home! The best room is set apart
for his chamber. Again and again have lov
ing hands folded away the curtains, and shook
out the tnowy drapery. The vases are filled
every day with fresh flowers, and every even
ing tremulous, loving voices whisoer, "Ho
will be here to-morrow, perhaps." At each
n;r?.l the table is set with scrupulous care.
Tiie newly embroidered slippcis, the rich
dressing gown, the study cap that he will like
so well are all paraded to meet his eye.
That student brother! He could leap the

is but one that fills his heart, and that spot
he will sion reach. "Sweet home.,"

He sees her watching from her cottage door;

the threshold of memory.
