From the Huron Reflector.
Spare my Heart from Growing Old.
Old Time, I ask a boon of thee
Thou'at stripped my heart of many a friend.
Taken half my joys and ail my glee-
He just for once to make amend;
And since thy hand must have its trace,
Tnrn locks to gray, turn blood to cold
Do what thou will with form and face,
But spare my heart from growing old.
I know thou'at taken from many a mind
Its dearest wealth, its choicest store,
And only lingering left behind
O'er wise experience, bitter lore.
'Tie sad to murk the mind's decay,
Feel wit grow dim and memory cold
Take these, old Time, take all away,
But spare my heart from growing old
Give me to live with friendship still,
And Hope and Love till lifu be o'er
Let be the first, the final chill.
That bide the bosom bound no more.
That so, when I am passed away,
And in my grave lie slumbering cold,
With fond remembrance friends may say,
"His heart, his heart grew never old !"
The Lost and the Living.
BY FANNY FERN.
1 he husband's tears may be few and brief,
He may woo and win another;
at the daughter clings with unchanging jrief
To the image of her mother!
But a fleeting twelvemonth had passed since
the heart (that for years had beat aiaiost bis
own) was forever stilled, when Walter Lee
brought again a fair young creature to share
his widowed home1 Nor father, nor mother,
brother nor sister, claimed anv part ofthe or
phan heart that be coveted and won. No
expense cr pains had he spared to decorate
the mansion for her reception. Old familiar
objects, fraught with tenderest associations,
had been removed, to make way for tho ud-
holster's choicest fancies. There was no pic
ture left upon the wall, with sweel.sad, mourn
ful ej-es, to follow him with silent reproach.
Everything was fresh and delightful as the
new born joy that filled his heart.
"My dear Edith," said ho fondly pushitur
back the hair from her forehend; "there sho'd
be no shadow in your pathway, but I have
tried in vain to induce Nelly to give you the
welcome you deserve ; however she shall not
annoy you. I shall compel her to stay iu the
nursery till she yields to my wishes."
"Oh, no! don't do that," said the young
step-mother anxiously: "I think 1 understand
her. Let me go to her, dear Walter," and
she tript lightly out of the room and left him

when the door closed after her. Reuchtne
out his hand, he almost unconciously took up
a book that lay near him. A slio of Daner
tluttered out from between the leaves, like a
a white-winged messenger. The joyous ex
pression of 1 1 is face faded into one of deep
sorrow, as he read it. It run thus:
"Oh to die, and be forgotten. This warm
hoatt cold these active limbs still these
lips dust. Suns to rise and set, flowers to
bloom, the Bioon to silver leaf the trees 'round

(not in words) how dear you were. Oh, Wal

eyes, let her mother's soul still speak to you.

Calkd Cusiiino Hannah F. Gould. We
have seen in soma of our exchanges a lam
poon of Miss Gould upon Mr. Secretary Cush
ing, when a young man, bnt in such a gar
bled form, and with so many absurd mistakes,
thnt we scarcely recognized an old friend.
Miss Gould was a resident of Vermont,and
hi!e on a visit to Massachusetts, was thrown
in company with young Gushing. She exer
cised her poetical powers in writing cutting
epitaphs upon the young beaux of tbe neigh
borhood. At a pnrty which both nttended, a
paper was circulated, which caused great
merrimont, and finally came to tho eye of
Cushing, who read,
"Lie along all ye dead,
For in the next bed
Repose thn ashes of Cushing;
He has crowded his way,
Th rough the world they say,
And even though dead, may bo pushing."
Cushing took the paper, disappeared a few
minutes, and returned with another, which be
ing circulated, put an end to persecutions of
the poetess. It contained tho following:
"Ho.re lies ono whose wit
Without wounding could hit;
Oreen be the turf that's above led
I laving sent every beau
To the regions bulow,
She now has gone down for a lover."
Miss Gould who was verging towards old
maidhood, did not relish this home thrust, and
left off writing epitaphs in that society.
A Deer Story A Fact. Not long since
says the Fond du Lac Journal, as two small
boys aged eleven and -thirteen years, sons of
Warren Morley, alio resides about twelve
miles from this city, on the Lake Shore road'
were startled by the barkinz of a dog in the
bushes closo by. On going into tho bushes,
they were met by a two year old bnck. havint;
a tussle with the dog. One of the boys caught
up a club and made tor the deer; but no soon
er had be done this than the deer made for him
with the hair standing 6traiht on his back
and his eyes glistening like wild fire As he
made tor the boys, the dog caught htm by the
hind leg and threw him down, and then the
boys pitched at him with their clubs and
pounded him pretty severely, but he soon
ganed his footing and made a second dash nt
the boy. As he did so, striking at them with
his horns the boys struck him with their clubs
on the head,
The deer not liking this kind of treatment,
and having to tiht three to one, concluded to
take "French leave'which he did with the
dog and boys in persuit. The deer made for
the lake, some fifty rods from the scene of ac
tion, aud went on the ice, closely pursued by
the dog. He had not run more than a hun
dred rods when ho fell.giving the dog a chance
to come up winch he did, caching the deer by
tho nose and holding on until the boys came
up, when one ot them caught him by the
horns and jumped upon him, placing his feet
against one ot his legs and holding on the
other leg with one hand and the horns with
the other, to keep the deer from kicking him
he struck bun on the head, and so etlectually
thnt he killed him on the spot. They then
took him by the hind legs and dragged him
him to the house, nbout a half a mile distant
to the mortifications of a cou'ne of hunters who
had been on the track all day uud just came
up to tho spot where the boys and tho deer
had their first tussle when they were met by
the boys, who were dragging the deer along.
He weighed something over 125 pounds

Second vs. First Rate. The following is
a bit of Thackeray's humor, and it is very good
if not, first rate:
I have always had a taste for the second
rate in life. Second rate poetry, for instance,
is an uncommon deal pleasanter to my fancy
than your great thundering first-rate epic po
ems. Your Milton and Dante are magnificent,
but a bore, whereas an ode of Horace, or
a song of Tommy Moore, is always fresh, Bpar
king, and welcome.
Second-rate claret, ngain, is notoriously bet
ter than first rate wine; you get the former
genuine, whereas the latter is a loaded and
artificial composition tbat cloys the palate and
brothers the reason.
Second rate beauty in women is likewise,
I maintain, more agreeable than first-rate
charms. Your first-rate Beauty is grand,
sevore, awful. a faulness, frigid and of live
feet nine superb to behold at church, or in
the park, or at a drawing room but eh

For the Journal.
Mil Eniroii : I must beg your indulgence
for a short '.ime, as 1 have a few words to say
upon a leader in the Democrat under tho head
of "Corporation Elections," Under that head
the editor of the Democrat "comes down," as
he thinks, upon men who have moral courage
enough to opposo "parti," when they see fts
corruption. When we take into consideration
that the "whiskey" issue was made a direct
question in that election, Temperance men,
(some if they were Democrats,) ought to be
excused ; and the npprobrioU3 epithets which
he npplys to them, only shows thnt morality
nnd temperanco arc not npprccinted by him as
they ought to be. He seems to think that be
cause it was "the regular ticket," men must be
coerced into its support without a right to en
quire into its principles or its manner of or
ganization. Hence, his proclamation in ad
vance, warning men how to vote. Any man
of ordinary perception would judge at once
that there was some game played, that would
not stand the test
It is well known that long before the elec
tion, tho liquor issue was to be made at this
election. It :s well known, too, that some of
the men that run on that ticket, cooed and
fawned around tho liquor dealers, bidding for
their support, by pledging a repeal ofthe
"Liquor Ordinance," if elected. Now, tho
great desire of those men was not tho welfare
of the Democratic party, but a desire to make
tire pnrty a tool to coerce and drive men into
the support of a measure they despised. So
conscious was he of tho corruption, that ho had
to buy off opposition, and get out his flamy
handbills to gull and deceive voters.
Now, sir, is it not mean to abuse men who
repudiate thoso who foist themselves upon
Democratic voters by chicanery and imposi
tion. Tho editor remarks that two years ago it
was resolved to run a Democratic ticket. It
was little thought then that men culling them
selves Democrats would resort to the lineese
and imposition thnt was resorted to by a small
faction of "Miamies" this spring and last It
was not to the men that run on tho ticket, but
it was to his principles and ths manner of
their nominations. .Now, how was that ticket
nominated ? Why, sir, some men met in his
office and formed that ticket, a.id two of the
four wero put on as candidates. They then
went to the caucus, and had a committee bd-
pointed to select candidates for the party.
The committee reported the same men that
were selected in the Democrat office. When
the voto was to be taken on tho ticket, two
thirds of the votes were on the outside of the
house, and knew of nothing that was going on ;
nnd when asked to have them called, refused.
I should like to know who ever heard of a
convention appointing a committee f select
candidates for it 1 always supposed that it
was the convention itself that selected its can
didates, till I saw this "Miami" method The
jsame course was pursued last spring with the
samo result, it win always bo so as long as
the editor of the Democrat arrogates to him
self the leadership ofthe Democracy, and runs
on its ticket. I cun Buy to him that tho De
mocracy will never elect him to any office in
the corporation or county; and he never will
be run on its ticket, unle?s only w hen he as
sumes to be the Democratic party, and nomi
nates himself. If I know anything of Democ
racy, it is open, fair and honest in our conven
tions and cuueusses, and when any man steps
aside from these principles, he is the "traitor
and bolter." As far as I am concerned, I vo
ted the ticket, as I have always made it a car
dinal point in my faith so to do. But when I
did voto so, I did not endorse the the low,
mean and coutemptibie farce that was played
in its nomination. As far as most of the men
are concerned, I have nothing to say, for in
justice to some I must say they did not know
that they were being made tools of. As far
ns the editor of the Democrat is concerned, I
have always duubted the genuineness of his
democracy.- He may be spiritual enough,
but it is not of the right sort Only a few
days ago ho came out on tho Legislature be
cause they did not eome up to his dictum in
paying for printing and culled
tiiem harsh names, showing to all thnt his de
mocracy is vaunt, and can be easily measured
by dollars and cents. Next fall in the can
vass, the nets of the Legislature will undergo
a severe scrutiny, and when Democrats under
take to delend thnt body, they will have that
article of tbe Democrat stuck under their no
ses. It it a mean bird that befouls its own
nest If it becomes necessary, I will show
thnt that paper has always been furnishing
food for the enemy. He will learn soon that
ho is not the leader nor mouth-piece of tho
Democracy of Sandusky. If he will only stick
to his resolve and not meddle with the corpo
ration election, nor run on its ticket, it will al
ways be Democratic. I do not wish to pro
voke a controversy with the editor of the Dem
ocrat I merely wish to let him know that
the Miamies are known.

From the Ohio Journal of Education.
To the Friends of Common Schools in
Citizens of Ohio, who have confidence and
hope in tho capacity of tho common school sys
tem to mako our country more prosperous and
our people more hsppy, will rejoice that a
school law, so wise and liberal, has found fa
vor, at last, with the legislators of the .State.
But let it be remembered, friends, that what
has been gnitied is the result of much hard la
bor and personal sacrifice, trot only on the
part of school friends during the recent ses
sions of the Legislature, but also of disinteres
ted private citizens, for many years past; and
that the advantages now proffered to the peo
ple, can only fully bo realized by the contin
ued exertions of the friends of liberal rnens
ures. Allow us, therefore, to invite your early at
tention to the proper administration of the
new school law, ns a matter of the very first
importance to its success and permanence.
Within a few days it will be necessary to
choose the local directors and boards of edu
cation for all tho country districts of the Slate;
and it should be well understood, that the tcs
election under tho law will, to a great extent,
determine its success and favor with the peo
ple. If the best men men who are the true
friends of the law and of jirayrc.is shnll be
chosen at the outset to constitute the local
boards nnd the township boards of education,
it is scarcely to be doubted, that, with the aid
of the increased Stato school fund, an excel
lent school organization can be adopted in ev
ery township in Ohio, within a very brief oe
riod. On the other hand, the election of men
indifferent to the Buccess, or opposed to the
liberality ofthe law, would, of course, thwart
all of its aims at improvement.
By the abolition of a fee for a teacher's cer
tificate, and the inconvenience, if not imprac
ticability nnd illegality of private examinations,
it is hoped that teachers of better qualilica
tions only can find employment.
Within a few months it will devolve upon
the people of the State to elect an officer es
pecially entrusted with the duty ol guarding
and promoting the great interests of popular
education in our State. It is scarcely to be
questioned, that the best talents and the best
virtues which the country can furnish, will find
amplo scope for nctive exercise in the duties
assigned to the State Commissioner of Com
mon Schools. It becomes, therefore, a matter
of the gravest importance, that the selection
of this officer should be made with reference
singly to his ability to meet the responsibili
ties of this station. No greater calamity could
vell, at this period in our educational history,
occur to our common school interests, than to
sutler partizan animosities and prejudices to
govern the people in tho selection of tbe man
to preside over these sacred interests. It is
greatly to be regretted that the provision in
the original bill should have been so changed
as to afford even a poor excuse for selecting
this officer from party ranks.
In view, therefore, of the interests involved,
and of the manifest impropriety of making any
man's political opinions a basis for preference
and nomination, we whose names are append
ed below, practical teachers, and members of
the different political parties of the StHte,
would most respectfully and most cordially
present, for the suffrages of all political par
lies, tho name of our highly esteemed fcllo
laborer and fellow-citizen, Lorin Andrews, as
every way worthy of the confidence of every
good citizen of Ohio, for our first State Com
missioner of Common Schools.
Mr. Andrews is a scholar. He pursued his
collegiate course at Kenyon College, where he
afterwards received the degree of A. M.
Mr. Andrews has been many years a prac
tical nnd successful teacher, a consideration of
no trihmg importance to one who shall direct
the educational interests of tha State.
Air. Andrews has pursued tho course of
study required in the legal profession, nnd has
lur some years held a heeuse to practice law
in our Stato.
Mr. Andrews has been almost continually
engaged, for the last five years, in labors for
tho cuuse of generul eJucation in Ohio, and
for a considerable porlion of the time, at much
personal sacrifice. These considerations alone
we think entitled to great weight, in compar
ison with whoever my now suddenly espouse
this cause, in view of tbe honors or the patrou
age to be dispensed.
iinttftve years' experience we believe worth
to the State more than the sulary of an inex
perienced man for ten years. Plans that are
practical, can bo adopted without loss of time
or money to tho State. Wants that are now
te.lt ure now well understood, and tho agen
cies to meet those wants can be most promnt-
iy irowueu oy a man ol the requisite experi
ence. Mr. Andrews' capacity as a business man
such, as everywhere to command public confl
uence, wuere lie is known.
Lastly, Mr. Andrews' integrity and honor
as a man are above reproach or susnicion. A
clear head, a good heart, and a wide range of
aenve aympainies, are to oe added to the qual
ifications before enumerated.
Wo therefore commend him to tho confi
dence and suffrages of oil classes of our fellow
citizens, and most respectfully and earnestly
request the political papers of our State of all
parties, to publish this circular, and then to
pluce the name of Lorin Andrews in a proper
place as a suitable candidate for all parties to
support for the office of State Commissioner
of Common Schools.
