Thou art growing old, my mother,
And thy brow is marked with cure,
All furrowod is thins aged cheek,
Ouee beautiful and fair.
Thy soft brown locks are sadly changed,
Chill frosts have settled there,
And touched with many a freezing kiss,
Tliy gentlo flowing hair.
Thou art growing old, my mother,
As I eatcli tho hulf drawn sigh,
Well 1 know that tears of sorrow
Hare bedimmed thy molting eye.
Dot with gentlo light it beameth,
Iieamcth on me even yet,
With a love that never changetu
Till tho tan of life is set.
Thou art growing old, my mother,
Many f our household band
Have beforo thee, journeyed onward,
To a far off " better land?"
But thy voieo in tender accents.
Still is falling on my e8r,
Sweetly brightening my pathway,
Which, without thee, were so drear.
Thou art growing old, my mother,
And around tliy youngest born,
Shadows gather darkly gather
Even in life's early morn.
Hut tho LT-sed Savior spareth
Thee, still to protect thy child,
Whilo tho storius of sorrow hover,
Hover o'er me dark and wild.
Thou nrt growing old my mother,
Soon I feel that tbou wilt rest
la tho "land of the hereaftor,"
In tho regions of tho blest.
Who will love mo, then, my mother,
When tho lust life-cord is riveu ?
Let us pray that both together,
God will tuko us eafo to Heaven.
In Nashville, many years ago, tlicro re
sided a gentleman of great hospitality,
largo fortune, and, though uneducated,
possessed of hard knot sense. Colonel
W. had been elected to tho legislature,
Rnd had also been Judge of the county
court. His elevation, however, had made
him somewhat pompous, and ho beeaino
very fond of using big words. On his
farm ho had a large, mischievous ox,
called "Big Britidlor whiij JffflQQtlv
inittcd other depredations, much to tho
Colonels annoyance. Uue morning, al
ter breakfast, in presence of some gentle
men who had staid with him over the
ht. and who were now on their way
to town, he called liis ovcrsoer and said
to him :
" Mr. Allen, I desire you to impound

Alleu bowed and walked off sorely
puzzled to know what tho Colonel meant.
So, after Uoloncl V. lett lor town, no
went to his wife and Asked her what Col.
YV. meant by telling him to " impouud"
Why," said she, " the Colonel means
to tell you to put him in a pen."
Allen left to pertorm the leat, lor it
was no inconsiderable one, as tho animal
was very wild and viscious, and after a
great deal of trouble and vexation, he
" Well," said he, wiping tho perspira
tion from his brow and soliloquizing,
M this is impounding, is it ? ' Now, I'm
lead suro tho old Colonel will ask mo it
I havo impounded Rig Urindlo, and I'll
bet I'll puzzle him as bad as ho did me."
Tho next day tho Colonel gavo a din

Allen, tlio overseer, sal (town wun me
company. Alter mo sooona or mini

to I no overseer nuu saiu :
" Eh, Mr. Allen, did you impound Big

Allen straightened himself, and looked

Tho company burst into an immoder

"What do you mean by that, sir?"
" Why, I mean, Colonel," said Allen
" that old Urindlo, Ixmig prognosticate
with an idea of tho cholory, ripped nn

DISCOVERY OF A MYSTERIOUS VAULT
Jacksox, O., Feb. 21.
Our village is full of wonder and ex
citement. Martin Marker, J. W. Iluy-hos,
and Washington Long, in digging a grave
in tho cemetery near this village, about
ten o'clock this morning, camo to a laro-o
flat stone about four feet below the sur
face, w hich stopped their further progress,
until they procured assist a nco nml remov
ed tho stone from its restinrr placo of
ages, w heu n was found to have closed
the entrance to a sublerraneau vault.
All efforts thus far (3 P. M.) to enter it
witn a light liavo proved unsuccessful, on
account ot the foul air with which it is
filled. By means of a rake, human bones
ot a gigantic size havo been raised, and a
small chartf of silver, with coins attached
to each end. The coins, thoujrh much
defaced by time, havo tho appearance of
ihoso used among tho Romans in tho
days of Scipio Afrieanus, though tlicro
wero evident traces of hieroglyphic devi
ces that cannot bo deciphered.
ilia men at tho cemetery havo by
means of burning straw, made light in
tho vault, and, though nono havo tho
courago to enter further than tho en! ranee,
it has bceu discovered that there is, im
mediately to tho west of tho onenincr. a
chamber of about ten feet square, with
steps quito dilapidated down its eastern
side. Three other chambers branch out
of this; one to the noith, one to tho south,
aud the other to tho west.
Wo are all curious, of course, to know
when and by whom these vaults wero
made and filled. Rov. Mr. Hunter, and
Mr. Armstrong, and Dr. Knouff havo ex
amined them as well as they could with
out going dowji into them, also tlio bones
raked out, and tho chain aud coius, and
all give it as their opinion that these
aults wero made by tlio same people
who- built mounds in tho southern part

P..S. W. Long, after tho straw had

but tho atmosphere was so impure that

though long enough to discover thai the

that thero wero largo numbers of bones

Another New Steamer. A gentle
man of Boston, who is a practical ma
chinist, is constructing a steamer upon a
novel plan by w hich ho proposes to attain
a speed of thirty or thirty-fire miles tho
hour. Ho has made experiments w ith a
model on a small scale, which were very
successful, and ho is now building ono
sixty feet in length to further test the
practicability and valuo of tho invention.
lie relies upon both air ami water to ob
lain his propelling force. With machine
ry iu the stern of tho vessel, upon tho pro
polling principle, ho proposes to obtain a
speed of twelve miles an hour, which, ho
says, is the highest rate that can bo real
ized from that agency. In tho bow of
tho vessel, and worked by the same on
ginos, ho places an apparatus something
l,l;o lue wings ot a winu mm, which is u
mako five hundred and sixty revolutions a
minute, and, by its action upon tho at
mosphere, w ill pull the vessel along, lie
calculates, at a speed much greater than
has heretofore bceu attained.

WHAT GREAT HEART DID.
I saw Great Heart ono day in a rail
way train. He was well dressed and ap
peared to bo reading, through his specta
cles tuo morning pajer. A poor woinau
sat opposite with six children, tlio eldest
scarcely a dozen years old.. Tho hus
band was a stupid hard-hearted wrotch
and administered blows unsparingly to a
wearied little thing who showed his dis
comfort by fretting as tho hot dusty air
swept over his face. Tho mother's coun
tenance wore a look of patient despair and
continual anxiety as the litte restless com
pany sat crowded together in tl) loaded
ear. JNot one of them looked shabby or
untidy, though very plainly dressed.
When the engine slopped for fuel iho poor i
woijuiu wok oui iioui a LiasKCi some
bread and cheesy which she distributed
sparingly among tho little group. Great
Heart had watched their movements all
tho morning, and, as a boy approached
the carriage with a basket of berries, he
bought up boxes enough loco round, and
gave them to tho hungry children, whose
eyes glistened as they saw such a raro
desert spread beforo "them. Ono little
girl, perhaps fivo years old, was uearly
sick, and tried to rest in her mother's lap";
but the tired infant disputed vigorously
her rights, and she was obliged to yield
tho claim. Great Heart had been grave
ly considering the company, and ho did
not hesitate to lake the poor child ten
derly in his arms, lay her head in his lap,
and then fan her with his paper, until she
sank into a peaceful .slumber. When we
stopped for our dinner, we saw them all
sealed by a bountiful table, Laded with
luxuries, to which they seemed total
strangers, yet which they knew very well
how to appreciate. o knew it was

the residcnco of Martin Nolan, on Eighth
street, between Cutter and Linn. Some
time during tho night Mrs. IN. was par
tially awakened by the hand of a person
in an effort to removo a gold Ting from
her linger, and, under the impression that
it was her husband, sho asked why he
was taking her ring off. Tho hand was
immediately dropped, and the lady re
lapsed into a stato of scmi-unconseious-ncss.
A minute or two after she was
again aroused by another effort to removo
the ring, which was this tnno more suc
cessful, and becoming thoroughly awak
ened, sho discovered a man retreating
from tho room. Iho thief had actually
stolen the ring from her finger! Upon
arousing her husband it was discovered
that other articles ot jewelry to the
amount of fifty dollars had also been car
