An error or two Laving occurred in our
publication of this beautiful poem, two or
three weeks since, we republish it, Ed.
Trinity bells with their hollow lungs
Asd their vibrant lips and their brazen
Over the roofs of the city pour,
Their Easter music with joyous roar,
Till the soaring notes to the son are rolled,
As he swings along in his path of gold.
"Dearest papa," says ray boy to me,
As he merrily climbs on his mother's knee,
"Why are these eggs that you see me hold,
Colored so finely with blue and gold f
And what is the wonderful bird that lays
Such beautiful eggs oa Easter days t
Tenderly shine the April skies.
Like laughter and tears in my child's blue
And every fice In the street is gay,
Why cloud this youngster's by saying nay ?
Bo I cudgel my brain bit the tale be begs
Anil tell blm this story of Easter eggs.
You have heard, my boy, of the man who
Crowned with keen thorns and crucified ;
And how Joseph the wealthy whom God
Cared fur the corse of his martyred Lord,
And piously tombed it within the rock,
And closed the gate with a mi&hty block.
Now close by the tomb a fair tree grew,
Andadeep in the green trees' shadowy breast
With pendulous leaves and blossoms of blue,
beautiful singing bira sat on her nest.
Which was bordered with mosses like mala
chite, And held four eggs of an ivory white.
Now when the bird from her dim reeess
Beheld the Lord is his burial dress,
And looked on the heavenly face so pale,
And the deas, feet pierced with the cruel
Her heart nigh hroke with a sudden pang.
And ont of the depths of her sorrow she
All night long, till the moon was op,
She sat and sang in moss wreathed cup,
song of sorrow as wild and shrill
As the homeless wind when it roams the
So full of tears so loud and long,
That the grief of the world seemed turned
Bat soon there came through the weeping
flittering angel clothed in white;
And he rolled the stone from the tomb
Where the Lord of the Earth and Heavens
And Christ arose In the cavern's gloom,
And In living lustre came from the tomb I
Now the bird that sat in the heart of the
Beheld this celestial mystery,
And its heart was filled with a sweet delight,
And it poured a song on the throbbing
Votes climbing notes, till h'gher, higher, ,
They shot to Heaven like sparks of tire.
When the glittering white-robed angel heard
The sorrowing song of the grieving bird,
And heard the following chant of mirth
That hailed Christ ristA again oneartb,
He said, "Sweet bird, be forever blest
Thyself, thy eggs, and moss-wreathed nest!"
And ever, my -child, since that blessed
When death bowed down by the Lord of
The eggs of that sweet bird change their
And burn with red, and gold and blue,
Reminding mankind in their simple way,
Of the holy marvel of Easter Day.
The Fatal Shot.
Anions; the many fair castle homes
of Kc gland there could be none fairer
or more stately than Co ran Castle,
Suffolk. There, lived Bquire Corau,
line specimen of the olden schooi
stern, rugsred, and unbending aa one
his own oaks, yet, withal, genial
and kindly. The meanest peasant on
bis estate walked brisker when be
saw tbe bquire, and smiled for five
minutes after bearing his merry
"fine morning; first rate weather!"
Nearly forty years bad passed since
tbe Squire laid his fair girl wife In.
the vault of the Corana ; nearly twen
ty years since he has buried by her
side the one son of their short wed
lock. Yet Coran Castle was notdes
oUte. The "heir," though he died
young, bud lived long enough to leave
widew and t wo orphan babes to his
father's care. These orphans were now
grown up, and the noise of Hugh and
Emma resounded through -the castle
the full, cherry voice of the hearty
old . man. Dearly did he love them
both ; but Hugh was somewhat wild
aad wayward, and would sometimes
thoughtlessly thwart his grandsire'a
imperious will. One sore subject ever
lay between them. The old Squire
was a giant in stature and strength;
his youth had heen signalized by
feats of prowess and daring, of which
he never .wearied to boast Hugh
Co ran, on the contrary, had small
tastes for field sports, and being.small
and delicate In frame,- constantly
took to himself his grandfather's
careless scoffs about "lady men" and
"deneracy." , -
Not half a mile from Coran Castle
was a large tract of heath and moor
land, very wild and lonely, and at
that time infested with highwaymen.
It was necessary to cross this district
to reach the neighboring town of
Wrettel, One day.in the winter time,
Hugh Coran had occasion to go to
this village. He did, not return when
expected, and dinner was served
without him. Just as it was over, he
came in, excusing his tarr"tie8s by
saying that some suspicion, charac
ters had been seen on the moor, and
and therefore be had waited for his
companions on his homeward journey.
His mother was About to commend
what to her seemed prudence, when
the Squire broke into a storm of in
vective at Hugh's "cowardice."
When had he feared any mortal rntn
least of all a midnight robber? The
moorland offered no shelter for a
band of highwaymen, and he took
shame that one ot his race t treaded
encounter with any single foe. Old
as he was, he would ride over Coran
Moor alone at midnight, and no hand
should harm him or touch his purse.
He blushed -yes, that was the sting
ing word for the last of the Conns
In vain did Hugh answer gently
that he did not think his courage wo'd
fall if put useluliy to the proof, that
he owned he bad but little of the
reckless daring of the ancinntCorans:
but still he thought he modestly said
he thought, for the youth was no brag
gart that he would risk his own life
to save another's. But the Squire's
last words were too much. His blue
eyes flashed, be threw down his kniie
-left his dinner unfinished, and his
mother and sister in tears.
He did not show himself all that
evening. La re at night a messenger
came from Wrettel, bearing the ti
dings of the sudden and dangerous
illntais of an old friend of the Squire's

Squire Coran went . to his room to
prepare for his journev. Boasting
never strengthens one's own eourajro,
and he took gr at care that his piui
was in good order. At anotner time,
notwithstanding the reality of the
danger, he would not have taken the
pistol, but now he loaded it with
deadly precision, and laid it carefully
in his great coat gocket.
Emma, ran to call her brother to
say good bye, but she found his door
locked, and could get no answer.
"Let him alone," said her grand
father "Let him alone; example is
better than precept," and so be rode
There was only a cloudy moon, but
the stout hearted traveler knew his
road, and was a little likely to miss
his way on the moor as is a street
Arab in London. His thoughts went
before him to his dying friend, and
his indignation with Hugh slowly
faded away, when, just as a cloud
obscured the moon, he heard the
snort of a spurred horse, a shadow
fell on his path, a hand suddenly
caught his bridle, and a pistol was
pointed at his head.
"Your money or your life !"
Tbe words were spoken quickly in
a disguised but agitated voice. There
aa just light enough to see the high
wayman was a slight built man, of
no apparent physical force, yet the
Squire remembered his vain buast as
he felt how completely he was in the
stripling's power. . There was a mo
ment's silence. The Squire's hand
was in his great coat pocket. Did the
robber think he was getting his purse?
Did the Squire know he was search
ing for his pistol?
The highwayman spoke again in
the same strange voice, which seemed
full of smothered passion and grief
"I have heard you would never yield
to a single man." The Squire's blood
boiled at the implied taunt, but yet
the pistol was terribly near his head,
and he telt that in such case neither
strength nor courage can always win
"Nor would I yield to you," he
said he knew not what prompted
him "not to you alone, but to that
other fellow looking over your shpul-
The robber startled shudderingly,
and turned. Swift as lightning the
bquire aimed his own pistol and nred.
For a moment the moorland seem
ed illumined, out .of the fiendish
brightness came a light, sharp, almost
girl like shriek. A second more ail
was dark and quiet, and the Squire
realized he stood alone in the moon
light with a dead man at his feet.
A Btern man was Latymer Coran, of
(Joran, and ne was not to De Drought
to a pause tn bis journey, because he
had chanced to sliy a thief. Nor was
it the awe and horror of bloodshed
which blanched and flashed his cheeks
as he rode on. No, his rigid justice
decided that tbe man . deserved bis
death, only it was not meet that such
as he shduld have betrayed an honor
able gentlemen to deceit. For he
anew he had verified his boast, and
saved himself by a lie J
That haunted him as he stood by
the grim chamber of Wrottel Clock-
house, and saw the last of his old
friend, the county magistrate. He
dispatched no one to the dead robber,
time enough for that when he return
ed in the morning.
Then he took the officers of justice
with him, and they, respecting his
position, and the depression in which
he seemed plunged, .walked quietly
side by side, a little way behind his
horse. At last they reached tbe snot
where tbe deadly deed had taken
place. To their astonishment, a lit
tle group of people were gathered
about, and as they drew near they
heard the sound of lamentations, and
the Squire saw his own livery servant
one of them holding the bridle cf the
Tiderless horse. They turn startled,
wmte laces to him, as he rode up,
and were silent.
'What is the matter?" he deman
"Ob, he canna be dead ! the bonnie
laddie I" sobbed an old Scotch groom.
"Some one has shot Mr. Hugh,"
said two or three at once.
-'It must have been a duel," said
some one,-"fcr the young master has
his own pistol with him."
The Squire pushed his horse thro
the crowd. On the blood stained hea
ther lay his antagonist of the night
before, his own grandson, the back of
bis head completely shattered, and
stains of blood on his boyish face.
The Steward knelt by the corpse, dis
engaging the pistol from the stiff
gra8p of the dead. He looked at it
with wondering, bewildered eyes,
and said, "It has never been loaded !"
Then tbe old Squire understood it
all, he understood: that his boastful,
provoking words had aggravated
Hugh to put his courage to the test,
in hope of convincing him there ia no
trial ot bravery between an honest
man and robber. And the Squire un
derstood also that had that unloaded
Sistol been what it seemed, he, the
onorable Coran of Coran, had only

"I did it !'"' he said, gloomily, and
the two deferential officers of justice
came and stood on either side of Lat
ymer Coran, and his own servants
fell back In horror and dismay. Alas,
for the twice bereaved women waiting
and weeping, and as yet hoping, in
the proud old castle towers !
Latymer Coran was snared the Ig
nominy of a trial he did . not even
live to hear that the coroner's jury re
turned a verdict of "misadventure."
The stout old heart was broken. -Hugh's
funeral was delayed but a
day, that his grandfather and he "the
last of the Corans," might be buried
together. Their names, the murder
er and murdered, were written on one
tablet. Not a word was told of their
ancient and honorable lineage, nor of
the tragedy in which both lives clo
sedonly their names and ages, the
old man and the boy, and the text
"Fathers, provoke not your children
to anger." - '

The Rights of Citizens—An Important
The case of Walker vs. Crane, which
has been frequently alluded to in our
columns, has recently reached a final
conclusion in the Court ot last resort.
The plaintiff is our worthy towns
man, Hiram Walker. The defendant
was, in 1864, United States Provost
Marshal, stationed at Rutland. Mr.
Walker, as some of our readers may
remember, was in Rutland attending
to some business in reference to pro
curing a substitute for a man in his
employ, was taken for a bounty jump
er by Provost Marshal Crane, and
rndely ordered from his office. For re
senting this in not very careiully cho
sen language, Mr. Walker was ar
rested by the Provost Marshal and
marched to jail in charge of a file of
soldiers. For this unlawful impris
onment, Mr. Walker brought suit, ob
tained a verdict of $1,000 damages in
the Connty and State Courts, and tbe
Provost Marshal, (or the Government
which was understood to backing its
officer), still appealing the case, it was
carried to the United States Circuit
Court with the .same result, and was
finally carried to tbe United States
Supreme Court upon a writ of error.
The United States Attorney-general,
Mr. Evarts, being satisfied that, de
fense of the case could not be main
tained, gave it up without argument.
The writ of error was dismissed, and
the judgment of the Circuit Courr,
giving Mr. Wslker $1,000 damages
and his costs, was affirmed. The
point of law involved was the right of
the Provost Marshal to arrest a citizen
In Vermont, who was resenting the
rudeness of tbe officer, and the deci
sion is that he hadtio such right, and
that no act of Congress- could, under
the circumstances, give such right,

The Wonders of Life.
Rev. Day K. Lee, a Universalist
minister of New York, preached on
a late Sabnath on "The Wonders of
Life." He took his text from tt.
John lx., S. In referring to the blind
man whose sight was restored, the
story of that miracle, lie stid, was re
told in the simple&t words to bring
the scene In all its character before his
hearers and make them see and feel it.
The chapter was so natural It seemed
modern, and so full of divine and hu
man life that it convinced every en
lightened mind -of its inspiration.
The preacher mentioned the wonders
of life brought out of the bjlnd beg
gar's heart and revealed to him, and
passed to speak of the wonders of all
intellectual and moral life, and the
goodness of God now and forever un
folding them. The blind man repre
sented all. The miracle was an acted
promise of greater wonders to come
upon others. First, the wonders of
intellectual life and what they will be
forever. "Of every man we may auk,
is not this he that sat and begged?"
Here is a child sitting on the carpet,
and how helpless, how blind to all
thought and knowledge, to God and
heaven l Contrast it with the author,
astronomer, orator, poet, prophet or
Christ what a distance between
them! Would the distance between
you and angels be greater ? What a
little beggar it is ! It begs for a rattle
or candy otick ; yet what wonders of
life are folded in that heart, like pe
tals In a lily bud or oaks in acorns 1
It may become an author. Defoe was
once a little bgar like that and what
could his mother guess of his future?
Yet hiseyes were opened and he wrote
a book which made his name immor
tal. It mny become a scientist. Hum
boldt was once the same, remarkably
dull even at fifteen, and giving no
promise of greatness. But his eyes
were opened, truth came pouring in
rivers on his mind ; he sailed to every
port of science gathering richest freight
he became king of sctence, receiving
tribute from a hundred provinces, and
from the dome of his towering "Kos
mos" he stepped into heaven to ex-
fiiore its wonders and master its
ights. It may become a hero and
deliverer. So was Washington, whose
life was itteif a. shining world. It
ipay write psalms, like David, and
express the devotions of the human
race. Secondly, the wonders of spir
itual life. The works of Jesus weie
symbols of spiritual blessings. There
was a poor woman brought before
him blinded and beggard by sin!; but
a germ of goodness remained nn
blighted in her heart. Jesus breathed
upon it, and it sprang forth to virtu
ous life, beholding the divine and ho
ly, following him in loving devotion,
seeing the gates of heaven open clear
down to earth, rising to a new glory
forever, and snarl nir all thought and
joy. There waa once a poor tinker
who oeggea as often as he mended
kettles, and was morally blinded and
unbelieving. Wh i could have tho't
of making even a man of him? Yet
the Lord touched tbe eyes ot his soul,
and he wrote- the story of the Pil
grim, which has charmed and blessed
a million hearts. We have seen sim
ilar wonders in our day. Such pro
gress of life aud such a growth could
be compared to nothing so weil as a
trepical forest grown from a single
seed, or a plantation of lilies from a
bud. It gives a theme ot hope that
should rouse us and prompt our best
endeavors. It shows What powers of
mind are possible to all, what attain
ments may crowu those who begin
without promise. If a great autnor,
scientist, hero, deliverer can rise from
the heart of little begging child,
what may not we become by help of
God and our best endeavors?
[From the Cin. Gazette (Rep) March 11.]
The Public Faith.
During the late civil war, the Gov
ernment was obliged to borrow mon
ey at such terms as It could get. The
need of raising two millions a dayy
borrowing, and the uncertainty wheth
er at the end of the war the Govern
mfnt would be of the whole nation or
of a fragment of it, combined to de
press our credit. The Government
could not sell its bonds for par )n ni n
ey. It therefore resorted to the policy
of issuing a depreciating currency and
receiving that for its bonds. The av
erage value of this currency while it
was received for the bonds was about
sixty cents on tbe dollar.. This is the
amount In real money that we re
ceived for our bonds, The public
creditor got the nation's obligation to
pay a dollar for every sixty cents that
he lent to it
We owe the creditor paymtnt of
the interest periodically, and of tbe
principal at maturity. This is the
whole extent of our obligation. By
this the bondholder receives 10 per
cent. Interest in coin on vihe amount
actually lent the nation, and will re
ceive at the maturity of the bond, It
he is paid in coin, sixty-six per cent
more on the principal tnan the am't
he actually lent. . The Government
has promptly paid this interest, and
expects to pay the' principal at matu
rity. It might be thought - that this
would fill, the whole measure of its
duty; that a premium of sixty-six per
cent, on the principal, and ten per
cent. Interest on the amount actually
lent, is enough to undertake. ' But
there seem to be many that - hold
that this is not enough; that the Gov
ernment is guilty of a breach of faith
eo long as these bonds do not rise, to
par in the hands of the public credit
ors; that the nation is dishonored be
cause it does not raise the market
price of the bonds so that the public
creditor may speedily realize an ad
vance of two-thirds on the principal
he lent us; and that therefore the Gov
ernment must make any sacrifice that
may be necossary to give this great
addition to the property of the bond
hoiders. Among other sacrifices that many
ihink the nation should make in or
der to profit tbe public creditor, if for
no other reason, is urged for this, the
Government should raise the value of
the depreciated notes to par with coin,
by making coin payment on them at
the Treasury at their face. This cur-,
rency is the measure of the contracts
in existing credits running through
all the ramifications of trade and in
dustry, whose amount is estimated at
eight thousand millions. To raise this
measure of value to par with coin U
to require at least one-third more ot
labor and property Jo buy the dollar
than is required now, and thus to add
at least cue third to existing indebt
edness. This would be to levy upon
thoso who use credit an additional
debt not less In amount than the
whole of the national debt. ' No one
attempts to deny that this would be
the result, nor to pretend to compre

disaster that this would precipitate
upon the country.
If It were not for this exaggerated
consideration foi the bondholders, no
one would think of proposing a mon
etary disturbance so vast and, incalcu
lable; but there Is now a fantastic and
fanatical enthusiasm for the public
faith, which takes the shape of exag
gerating our obligations to the public
creditor, and which assumes that this
faith is dishonored because the bond
which tbe creditor sook for his loan
at sixty cents on the dollar has not
advanced, in his hands to par with
coin. To bring about this consumma
tion, monetary schemes are proposed
In cold blood, which, if ever carried
into effect, would be equivalent to
popular suicide schemes which wo'd
bring a monetary revolution upon
the country that would swallow up
both public and private credit, and
make the very name of payment of
the bonds a his.slng.and a by-word.
Truth from a Radical—Senator
Sprague's Review of the Situation.
benator Eprague, of Rhode Island,
son in law of Chief Justice Chase, in
recent speech in Congress, reviewed
the political situation of his party
friends on the subject of "reconstruc
tion, and, in so doing,' has told many
"He (Mr. Sprague) denied that
Congress had restored harmony or
prosperity to the country, and asser
ted that the people in tbe South are
rather in a state ot chronic revolution
and that there was no justice for the
poor man, or protection for the rights
and liberties of citizens in this boasted
land of freedom. Immigration had
fallen off, the industry and agricul
ture of the country were so prostrated
at the Went, that immigrants cannot
find remunerative employment, for
tbey can not sell their products for
enough to supply themselves with
tne necessaries oi me. xne reason
was that the legislation and the ad
ministration were so shaped at to en
courage .capital to speculate upon eV ,
ery industrial occupation in the coun
try. If this course was to be contin
ued, in less than five years there wo'd
be a clamor for a tariff to- keep out
foreign cotton. But great as was the
mismanagement opur affairs in every
department, the greatest abuses were
our financial policy. That policy was
directed and controlled by the bank
ers. They no doubt gave as good ad
vice as 'tney could, but experience
had always shown that dealers in
money knew little or nothing about
the relation f money to other occu
pations and interests. The country
was on the brink of. a precipice, and

their apathy, all was lost He had
wished for, and aided in the election

because he believed (bathe (President
Grant) had not , been contaminated
by the politicians, and had the capaci

their machinations. He had listened
to the inaugural address with intense
interest, and had been pleased by the
President's expressions of hn purpose

his official duties, but when he heard
the Dafcsaire asfcertinir tha ' Hacredneaa
of the public debt, he had gone away
disheartened and sorrowful, because
it had shown him the canker that
possessed the American body politic,
had got possession of the President
also. Still he was not without hope.
He hoped . the President would yet
discover the great error in which bad

The speech of the Rhode Island
Senator is one of the many signs of

Attached to every political party
are thousands of men who never
dream of engaging in regular business
pursuits, or as working as producers
for a livelihood, but live, Heaven
knows how, year after year, and with
the intent of procuring office. They
will spend ten years cf idleness to get
orfe or two years of partisan and offi
cial bread and butter, or, often the
bread without the butter. About one
of these, say in five or ten thousand,
ever gets a position worth daily salt.
Yet nothing will induce them to seek
subsistence in any other form. They
have, usually, suffering families,
many. of whom are as anxious, eager
and visionary upon the subject of of

great pity that this curse of habitual
office seeking cannot be modified, re
duced, or nearly altogether abrogated.
A Slight Difference.
General Butler has expressed the
opinion in the House of Representa
tives that "they (the Radicals) had to
do, to save the life of the country,
many things for which no justifica
tion can be found in the Constitution."
This is a pretty admission for a man
who has taken a solemn oath to ad
here to the Constitution in all its pro
visions. The - commission of the
crime of perlury is therefore frankly
acknowledged and justified. What
ends inuat those be which a party has
to attain by false oaths!
We are further informed that "there
were many things we had to do un
der Andrew Johnson which had never
been done again, and better be got rid
as soon as possible." We here have
slight disagreement with the Gen
eral. It is not things which were
done that it is important to be rid of
the men who did them. It is true
they had better never be done again,
but who can vouch that they will not
as long as we retain the rascals in
power who originally framed them.
