TOR THE IALK OF
Once upon an evening bleary,
While 1 tat me, dreamy, dreary,
In the sua shine thinking over
Things that passed In days of yore;
While I nodded, nearly sleeping,
Gently came a something creeping
Up my back like water seeping.
Seeping upward from the floor
" Tis a cooling breete," 1 muttered,
"Trom the regions neatb the floor
Only this, and nothing mora,"
Ahl distinctly I remember,
It was in that wet September
When the earth, and every member
Of creation that it bore,
Had for weeks and weeks been seeking.
All along my back the creeping
Soon gave place to rushing, leaping,
As If countless frozen demons
Had concluded to explore
All the cavities the varmints
Twixt me and my nether garments,
Up into my hair, and downward
Through my boots Into the floor;
Then I felt myself a thuklng,
Oently shaking more and more.
Every moment more and more.
'Twas the Ager and it shook mo
Into heavy clothes and took roe m
Shaking to the kitchen every
Place where there was warmth in store;
Shaking till the "china" rattled,
Shaking till my molars ratttled,
Shaking, and with all my warming
Feeling colder than before;
Shaking till it had exhausted
All its power to shake me more
Till it could not shake me more. : - ' '
Then it rested till the morrow
When it came with all the horror
That it bad the face to borrow,
Shaking, shaking as before,
. Aad from that dav in September
i Day which 1 shall long remember
It has mado diurnal visits,' .
Shaking, shaking, oh, so sore I
Shaking off my boots, and shaking
Me to bed, If.-nothlng mora-
Fully this, if nothing more.
And to-dny the swallows flitting
Round my cottage see me sitting
Moodily within the sunshine,
Just inside my silent door,
Wsit'ng for the Ager, scemir , .
Like a man forever dreamiag -
And Ihe sunlight on me streaming
Shed no shadow on the floor ;
For I am too thin and sallow
To make sjiadows on the floor
Nary shadow any more I

despair. , .
Life, in this lower world, Is cheerless enough,
without unneocessarily adding to it gloom. If
there are any bright spots in it, we may as well
enjoy them; at least, it can do no harm to look
them op ; for It is extremly pleasant, when one is
cold and weary on a journey, to run upon a streak
of sunshine, and bask. If but for a moment in its
inspiring warmth. '
The Chhokicb, in looking out upon the political
prospect, sees nothing but storm-clouds, whose
black volume breath oppression and death; huge
ice-bergs floating down upon us from the north-
it, kept cold and ngly by tba breath of Strviko
and piloted by the genius of Scmkrr; while a
whole nation of fanatic stand by and clap their
hands with joy. ,
Feeling thus; honestly believing that ruin stares
ns In the face; that nothing, nve a radical change
in the political elements, can save as from going
oVwn with the cities of the plain the Oiihokicli
plainly tells its readora so. But why give up the
ship so soop? We are adtift, it Is true, and our
rigging not In the best trim; but ''while there Is
life there is ho."
Never was a people more depressed; never man
more justly dejected; never a proud people more
thoroughly humiliated than these, our countrymen,
But now when the public pulse beats so feebly,
the life-current running cold and dead all our en
gics paralysed, we need encouragement; we need
something to cheer our lagging spirits; something
to stimulate us to hopeful action ; something to
inspire ns with a hope that one day, at least, we
shall all be on our feet again. Nothing more
essential to thenatlon's life than this. .
We look to the public journals for rcliof. We
devour their crowded jrnges for mental nutriment
for something to encourage and lift usnp. But,
to the Coroniclb, we look In Tain. It teachings

poaeession of Eden, no part of hi heritage ha
given to man such an hundred year of history a
that of Virginia, beginning with the public life of
George Washington, and ending with the surrender
of the armies of General Robert E. Lee. The great
orator, Patrick Henry, whose spirit lighted np tba
great Revolution, and wbose mild, sweet vote
called armies up the valley and down from the
mountains to defend New York; New Jersey, and
Massachusetts f.-om the invader hoof, was a ViN
