THE WRONGED HEART.
A Reminisence of the West.
Dear reader; if yoi:r affections have beer

one, whom you may have cherished in tht
inmost recesses of your soul; then lend youi
attention, while I endeavor to narrate, in at

the joys and s .rrows, the trials and Buffcringi
ol the wrotijjed heart. Many very many
we venturejtu say, will find it g truthful pictun
of their own experience. But to our story

"Alter my departure from lure, in the

who have left the homes of their childhood,
und taken pp their abode, far, fur away from
all who are near and dear, alone can tel. what
n sei s; of uller loneliness comes over the soul
as we reflect, that nut one of all those firms
aro uid us, have we ever seen heiore; and
perhaps, not one would stoop to wipe the
death-damp from the stranger's brow, or brush
away a tear.
We were much together- fond of each
other's society and it is not to he wondered
at, that as we sauntered through the g-een
fields, and flowr-ry vales, whispering words of I
encouragement and hope, or culling Nature's
choicest flowers; an Intimacy sprang up hii- 1
tween us, which amounted to something more
than mere friendship.
As muny a one has been before, I toe, wos

away and was but too happy, because 1 had
every anxurance that pure, bright being, who
was everything to me, and without which,
life seemed useless, and existence, a bliink."
"In her society, weeks flew as minutes;
vows of love, lro:n both, sealed by the fond
emi race, and tender kiss had been poured
again und again, into each others ears bind

'By thai golden evetlasting chain,"
'Whoso strong embrace, holds Heaven, and earth

My cup of happiness was olmost complete,
and I was looking forward with bright an

I might press her to my almost bunting heart

The Extent of the Opposition.
To-diy we conclude the publication of ex
tracts from the Ohio papers on tho subject of
tho nominations made by the Convention of
t'.t leHn latt. We l ave carefully observed
lhe current opinion, omf we are uiw able to
say that, of about 100 pnpers in tho State
.-i.l to the present administration, all but
it, are openly and acatousty advocating tho
c-lccti'jn of the entire :;cket. The following
II a lir'. of the nonconttnis: ThcCincinnati
Times, Dayton Journal, Cleveland Express,
' i trmintown Locomotive, Gri'lipolia Journal
ind Newark Times. Of these, the Cincin
nati Times and Cleveland Express are K. N.
pipers, and were opsnly and warmly in favor
of a notnina'ion '.iy tho Order at Cleveland
in June. They still think the K. Ns. should
make f parav nominations. The Dayton
Jonrnul does not like Mr. Chase, snd is not
d j o-ed to run up the Republican ticket. It
does not proclaim itself iu favor of separate
nominations, but occupies the position of an
independent grumbler. The Germsntown
Locomotive is in about th" tame fix. The
editor compares Li s position to that of a
jackass between t.vo pile! of thistles; he is
nt yet sure which he shall conclude to eat.
The Qelilpoiil Journal snd Newark Times
repuuiDte the nomination of Mr. Chrse, and
'eciare that they wiil not support him, but
we have seen no expression of their disposi
tion to nominate another ticket.
All of these papers are satisfied with the
balance of the ticket. They do not propose
to disturb them, but they object to Mr. Chase.
We submit that the idea of this har.dfull of
malcontents overruling the grcot mass of the
R"publicans is totally out of the question.
They must abide by the decision of their
brothern, or be prepared to face the consequ
ences. In Hamilton county the opposition to Chase
will be strongest and most bitter. This was
anliciputed by both his friends and foes. But
there is this counteracting element that will
keep these bolters in check. Many of them
are merchants und business men. Thev feel
keenly the want of reform in our currency
and tax systems. The prosperity, almost tho
existence of Cincinnati, depends upon secur
ing these reforms. If these men array them
selves against the Republican ticket, they
effectually cut themselves off from all sym
patbywith the rest of the State. If they
accomplish snytliing by their proposed move
ments, ihey will only succee ; in dividing the
friends of Reform, nnd thus effeCtUHly dafeut
what they most desire, by keeping the poli
tical power of, ti State in the hands or the
Licuf ico party, i it them be warned in s?a
l son. The yyes of llir ftvfht ere upon them
and any effort of theirs to defeat the Repub
lican cause will not be forgotten in the hour
of our triumph.
The cause of freedom and reform is in
2ood hands, nnd it is destined to triumph.
Public opinion, with great unanimity, is with
Us-. A fe.v short-sighted, misguided m?n,may
bolt Mr. Chase, but he can spare all such and
stiil be elected by fft-j thousand majority.

"The Old Woman."
It wn3 thus a few days since, we heard a
stripling of sixteen designating the mother
who bore him. By coarse husbands we hove
heard wives so called occasionally, though in
the latter case the phrase is used endearing
ly. At all times, as corr.m-jnly spoken, it
jars upon the ear and shocks the same.
An "old woman" should bo an object of rev
erence obovc and beyond r.ll other phases Jof
humanity. Her veiy ago should be her sur
est passport to ccurtcous consideration. Tl u
aged mother of a grown up family needs no
o.her ccrtifijnte of worth. She is a rr.oju
