LIBERTY AND UNION.
BY MRS. J. J. MONELL.

;
I would evrth Colon but oany undo ,'
Th relation ol brother to broiherl
T may oololy rard him, and slander him. too, -But
when sorrow o'ertake him, your heart Will be
true .
Io the luv y once bore blm, when togihr y grw)
In peace, by th side of yo Mother.
t would sever the Union but oan ye untwine
Those numberlM tie that have bound youf
Like the thread of a creeping and delloat vine,
They bare ailently spread In th rain and Ihe shine.
Till, wnen ye would burst them, ach gossamer line
Turn to "cord and to cable1; around you)
T would sever th Union WhatT ye who were nurted
In th arm of so holy a Mother t
Would you dar to pronounce heraitray and accuned,
Who rocked you to sleep In one cradle at Hrt
Who shielded your head from the storm when It burst.
And ne'er gav the charge to another?
Y would sever th Union Lot tan ye forget
How your fathers stood shoulder to shoulder?
ITow Ilk ono. lu privation, their stern heart were set;
How like one, In th oonUiot, our foemen they met;
How like en they were melted by sorrow, and yet
How la danger grew bolder and bolder?
Te would sever th Union but will y dlviJa
The 0g of our freedom and glorj 1
It waved o'er th field where our forefather died:
Their ohtldron unlurl It with reverent pride,
ana whose anaii to task no to uirow it aside, .
And tell the sad nations the itorjV
Y wonld HTtr th Co Ion but who then shall claim
The grave of our country a Defender?
Will the North and the Bouth fan the fuel to flune,
And fight o'er Ait ashes whose glorious nun
Is watchword of Liberty. Justice and game,
W would all rather at man surrender)
Ts would (ever th Union but wo to th day
38S)When y mingle In council no longer!
What shall keep ruler from deadly affray?
What love ahall be potent the neonle to ewayr
Y will find yourselves powerless Ihe torrent to 'y '.
Of hat and the right or the stronger.
Ta wonld sevr the Union our Union and why?
short and few are the words of the reason:
The North think the South should abju Slavery,
The South thinks the North doea not tenderly try
To view all her deed with unprejudiced eye,
And eacn finds a refuge in isiamni
"Judgtnot that ye be not Judged." Leave untoOoJ
The riitht of condemnlni vour brother.
Until, like an owner, ye stand on his sod;
until your own net in hi patnway nave trod
Until you are scourged, both alike, by th rod,
never dare to pronounce on another.
But oberlth the Union, with heart tnd with hand,
Aa y enerisn your noma ana your altar;
Thorugh th length and th breadth of our wlde ipretd
Inr land.
Alone by th eye of Omnipotence canne,d,
Rise up fn your etrength and the oraven withstand,
not uare to auasmoi inn raiter.
If ye sever th Union, then Liberty dies.

Transcendental Eloquence.
The following Breech of General Riley, de
livered in the Missouri House: of Representa
tives, on February 8th, will repay perusal.
Tbe man who cannot find In It a hearty laueh
bas "no music in his soul," and is only fit "for
treason , strategem, and spoils."
Mr. Riley obtained the floor, and addressed
the House: . , . ...,
Ma. BriAKta: Ererjbody Is a Bitchine into
this matter like toad frogs into a willow swamp,
on a lovely evening in. the balmy month of June,
when the mellow ligbi or tne fun moon fills
with a delicious flood tbe thin, ethereal, atmos
pheric air. Applause. Sir, I want to put in
a word, or perhaps a word and a balf.
There seems to be a disposition to 3?ht. I
aay, if there is any fighting to be done, come on
with vour oorn-cobs and lightning-bugs! ' Ap
plause. . In the language ot the ancient Roman,
"Oom onel com alll This rock shall fly
Prom II firm base in a pig' eye!"
Now, there has been a great deal of bombast
here to-day. I call it bombast, from "Alpha"
to ''Omega." (I don t understand tbe mean
ing of the words, though.) Sir, the question to
reler is a great ana magnincent question. It is
the all absorbing questions like a epongc, sir
a large, unmeasurable sponge, of globe sbape,
in a tumbler of water it auoks uo every thine.
Sir, I stand here, with the weapons I havo de
signated, to defend the rights of St Louis conn
ty, tbe rights oi any otner county even tbe
count; of Cedar naell. Laughter aud ap
plause. bir, tne debate baa assumed a luti
tudinoaity. We bare had a little.black-l ack
buncombe, a little two bit bancombe, bomoasc
buncombe, buoghole buncombe, and tbe devil
and bis grardmoiner knows what other kiod of
bancombe. Laughter.
Why, sir, just give some of 'em a little
Southern soap and a little Northern wier, and
quicker than a hound pup oin lick a skillet,
they will maae enougu oaoeomoa latner to
wash tbe golden flock that roama abroad the
ature mead oi neaven. i vneera ana laugti-
ter. I allude to tbe starry firmament.
The Speaker. The gentleman is out of order.
He must confine himself to the question.
Mr. Riley. Just retain your linen, if you
pleaso. I'll stick to the text as otose as a pitch
platter to a pine plank, or a lean pig to a hot
jam rock. Cries of "Go on;" You'll do."
1 want to aay to sueao oaruuuiierous gentle
men, these igneous individuals, these deioua
lioK demonstrators, these peresinous volcanoes,
come on with your combustibles! If I don't
I'll auok the gulf ot Mexico through a goose
quill. Laughter and applause. Perhaps you
think I am diminutive tubers and sparse in the
mundane elevation, xou may discover, gen
tlemen, von are laboring under as great a misap
prehension as though ou had Incinerated your
inner vestment. .In the language of the noble
DMu ... . .v. . -i
"1 was not oorn in a ibickbi,
To be scared by a cricket."
Ifrwe bavs lost bur proper position: Our
proper position is to the zenith and nadir oar
beads to the one, our heels to the other, at right
angles with the horizon, spanned by that azure
aro 01 tne lUSirou urmsuiiuvi ungui wuu tne
corruscalions of the Innumerable constellations,
and proud as a speckled stud-horse on county
court day. Cheers.) . i .
"But bow have the mighty fallen!" in the
language of the poet Silversmith. We have
lost our proper position. ' We have assumed a
sloshindicular or a dlagonaloglnl position. And
what is the caujeT echo answers "Buncombe,"
sir, "buncombe." The people have been led on
buncombe, wnilS a lot Ol epaviueu, rwg.Duuea,
hamstrung, wind-galled, swineyed, split-hoofed,
distempered, poll eviled, pot-bellied politicians
nave bad their noses in too puuuu onu, uniu
there ain't fodder enough left to make gruel for
a sick grasshopper. Cheers and laughter.
Sir, these hungry brata keep tugging at the
publio pap. They say, "Let down your milk,
tucky, or you'll have a split bag." Do you
think they can stuff such bunoombe down our
irawt No, sir) yon might as well try to stuff
butter In a wild oat with a hot awl. Continued
lanirhter.l The thing Can't be did.
The nubllo erindstone Is a great Institution,
! a. air. a neat Institution. One of the
greatest, perhaps, that ever rese, reigned, or fell.
But, air, there is too mnoh private ontlery
! round.1 Tne tmng won t pay. uooasionaur a
ig axe is brought in to be fixed up, ostensibly
or the purpose of bewlog down the gnarled
Minkanf error, and clearing out the brushwood
if ignoranoe and folly, that obstruct the publle
highway of progress. The machine whirl i the
axels applied. The lookera-on ore enohanted
.itk tha hrilliant soarks elicited. The tool is
polished! keenly edged; and, while the public
stare in gaping expectancy or seeing the roaa
i.ui.thatmnlement la elvlv taken off to im
prove the private acres of some "faithful friend
th naonle." v What Is tha result! Tbe ob
tractions remain unmoved. Tbe people curse,
because the oar lags; or, If it doea move, 'tit at
tbe eijxnseof a broken wheel and jaded and
sore backed team. I te l yon, the thing won't
pay, . i ne time win come wnen tne nasal prom'
ontories of these disinterested grinders will bo
put to the stone, Instead of their hardware.
(Applause ; I am mighty afraid tbe machine
is going to stop. ' me grease is glvlDgoutthun
derlog fast. It is begtonio to creak on Its ax
U. ' Gentlemen, ll la my private opto lon.confl
dentlally expressed, that all the "grit" is pretty
near worn on. (Applause.;
Mr- Speaker, yon must eicuse mo fur my
latitudinosity and olrcumlocutoriness. My old
blunderbuss soatters amazingly, but if anybody
gets peppered, It ain't my fault if they ace in the
wy.
Sir, these dandadical, snpersqnlrtlcal mahoga-ny-facedgeniry-J-whatdothey
know about tbe
blessings of freedom T About as much, sir, as
a toad-frog does of high glorr. Do they think
they can escape me? I'll follow th em through
pandemonium and high water! Cheers and
laughter ,
These are the ones that have got our liberty
pole off its perpendicularity. Tis they who
would rend tbe Stars and Stripes, that noble
flag, tbe blood of our revolutionary fathers em
blemed in its red; the purity of tbe causo for
which they died denoted by the white; tbe blue
tbe freedom they attained, like the azure air
that wraps their native bills and lingers on
their lovely plains. Cheers. The high bird of
liberty sits perched on tbe topmost branch, but
there is secession on his glorious tall. I fear
be will no more spread bis noble pinions to soar
beyond tbe azure regions of the boreal pole.
But let not Missouri pull tbe last feather from
bis sheltering wing, to plume a shaft to pierce
his noble breast or, what Is the same, mike a
pen to sign a Secession ordinance. Applause.
Alas, poor bird, if they drive you from the
branches of the hemlock of the North, and the
Palmetto of the South,come over to the gumtree
of the West, and wo will protect your noble
bfrdehlp while water grows and grass runs
Immense applause. Mr. Speaker, I subside
for the present.
A Curious Affair.
Some eighty or a hundred years ago, the body
of a man was found in the Tiber at Rome. It
was recognized as that of a porter, well known
about the city, but a stranger thing was that a
second body (also that of a man) was found at
tbe same time tied up in a sack, which was
strongly stitched on the collar of tbe coat of
the porter. This was not so easily recognized,
but the strangeness of tbe circumstances set all
tbe authorities immediately to work in the
greatest earnest, and excited much interest in
tbe city. Before long, suspicion arose, which
attached itself to a woman of doubtful charac
ter, who lived in the outskirts and whose hus
band had all at once disappeared. All, how
ever, that was known was this, that she had
lived nnhappily with him. Nothing could be
discovered or brought borne to her beyood the
fact that he was gone, and of course she main
tained that he had leit ber, and that she was a
much injured person.
And thus, as there was no proof, after a
while tbe talk of the affair was dying out,
when at once it was fanned into a flame again
the suspected house was revisited, and the wo
man actually brought to confess the truth that
she had murdered her husband and caused, like
wise, the death of the porter. Upon this, with
out further ado, she was apprehended, and bad
to undergo ber trial. The obtaining this con
fession, and tbe discovery of what bad baffled
the wisest beads in Rome, caused a very great
sensation, but nobody seemed, to know bow it
bad been brought about. Upon her trial, she
said she bad murdered her husband out of jeal
ousy, and with no help from any human creature-.
Tbe great difficulty jhe found waa in
disposing of the body. At last she hit upon this
contrivance. She crammed it into a sack, and
sent for a porter with whom she was acquaint
ed, it was men tne ansa: oi evening.
- On bis arrival, she represented that she had
been cleaning .. ber bouse, and had collected
great mass of rubbish, which she did not well
know what to do with, or how to get rid of; she
tuoueot it a coon man to ituii it ail inin a ir
and hare it thrown into the river. It was heavy.
uv ttiu, out bdo wouia pay nim well lor nia
job, and give him some refreshments before be
started with bis load. The matter thus ar
ranged, they supped and caroused together, and
she so plied him with drink that he waa well
nigh overcome. She then broueht out tha sack.
and while pretending to adjus I it to his shoul
der, stitched it strongly to the collar of his coat,
teiiing mm an ne naa to ao when be trot to tbe
middle of the bridge was to lean it toward the
edge, and cbuck tbe sack as be could over the
parapet, so as to get it clear out of the wav in
to the current, and she would give him bis mon
e; when be came back, which, of course, ha
never did.
She could not tell, she said, how it had been
found out, but she supposed God and the Vir
gin Mother bad brought it to light; that waa
tbe wbole truth, sbe added, and 11 she bad to
tell. When tbe trial had arnv ed at this point,
a young lawyer stepped forth and asked ber
II sbe bad ever told anybody what sbe bad
done, or bad any accomplice who could hve
divulged ill" "No," said sbe, "nobody bad
helped ber, and they . might well suppose she
would not be such a fool aa to tell It to any liv
ing area ture." "What, nobody!" the jouug
lawyer asked. ' "No, said sbe, "only my oon
feasor."
Here was the solution of tho whole business.
and the lawyer soon discovered that tbo eon
lessor bad a brother In tbe galleys, and, call
Inat to mind an old custom, that if a galley
slave . can be tbe means of brineinp: a worse
criminal than himself to justice, be received
bis freedom, be arrived at the conclusion that
the galley-slave bad lurnlBbed the clue, which
turned out to be the fact. The woman escaped
punishment, aa the discovery bad been made
through a breach of the confessional. The fath
er con lessor absconded as soon ae possible. Tae
young lawyer rapidly rose to emlotnce.
Wnr do Animals Nxin S alt. Prof. Jas. E.
Johnson, of Scotland, says: "Upwards of balf
the saline of the blood (57 per cent.) consists
of common salt; and as this is partly discharg
ed every day throughout the'skln and the heal
thy body, becomes sufficiently obvious. The bile
alio contains soda (one of the ingredienta of
salt,) aa a special and lndlspenslble constituent
and so do all the cartilagea of the body. Stint
the supply of salt, therefore, and neither will the
bile be able properly to assist digestion, nor
the cartllageaco be built up again as fast aa
they naturally waste." ' 1
It is better to place salt where stock can have
free access to It, than to give it occasionally in
large quantities. They will help themselves to
what they need, if allowed to do so at pleasure;
otherwise, when tbey become "salt hungry,"
they may take more than is wholesome.
Paorir or Fowls. A lady friend of ours
states that from forty hens, kept in the ordinary
barn-yara manner oi tne country, with tbe ad
dition of about one pint of oorn per day, sbe
obtained during the months, inclusive, ot March
and September, over lour thousand eggs, and
about two hundred chickens. The fowls were
confined each night, in a house, where the drop
pings could all be saved, and from them nearly
nre oarreia oi mannre, equal to tne nest guano,
were gathered. This result, when fooled up,
gives a return as follows i 4,000 eggs at 1 cent,
40; S00 chickens at 16 eents, $32; 1 barrels
of guano, at $10, $45. Total, $117. One pint
