I HAVE NO WI?E.
BT AN OLD AND INCOBBIOIBLB MEMBER OP THE
I have no wife ! young girls are fair,
But how it is I cannot tell,
No sooner tlicy are wed than their
Enchantments bid them all farewell.
The girls, God bless them ! make us yearn
To risk all odds anC take a wife,
To cling to one and not to turn
Ten thousand in the dance of life.
I have no wife! who'd have his nose
Forever tied to ono lone flower,
E'en though that flower should be a rose,
Plucked with light hands from fairy bower;
Oh, better far the bright boquet
Of flowers of every clime and hue,
By turns to charm the mind away,
And fragrance in the heart renew.
I have no wife ! I now can change
From grave to gay, from light to sad,
And in my freedom wide can range,
Fret for a while, and then be glad.
I now can heed a siren's tongue,
And know that eyes glance not in vain !
Make love apace, aud being " flung,"
Get up and try my luck again !
I have no wife! and I can dream
Of girls who are worth their weight in gold,
Can bask my heart in Love's broad beam,
And dance to think it yet unsold ;
Or I can gaze upon a brow
Which mind and beauty doth enhance ;
Go to the shrine and make my bow,
And thank the Fates I have a chance !
I have no wife! and, like a wave,
Can float away to any land,
Curl up and kiss or gently save,
The sweetest flowers that were at hand ;
A pilgrim shrine I bend before
The shrine which heart and mind approve,
Or, Persian like, I can adore
Each star that gems the heavens above.
I have no wife ! in heaven, they say,
Such things as weddings are not known ;
Unyoked the blissful spirits stray
O'er lields where care no shade has thrown.
Then why not have a heaven below.
And let fair Hymen hence be sent ?
It would be tine ; but as things go,
Unweded folks won't be content !
We are favored with another vote from that
friend of Jeff. Davis, whom the lolly of a Re
' publican Convention, and a queer mistake of Al
mighty God elevated to the position of President
of the United States. The civil visits bill, de
signed to protect the we:.k aud defenseless from
the tyranny and oppression of the unscrupulous
and strong, has met a stupid stumbling block
of the rebel "Variety, in the White. House. The
bill is so eminently just, humane and wise, that
no one but a friend of the rebel confederacy eouki
object to it. But lor its protecting provisions
the freedmon of the South, and that was fatal to
its passage by rebel consent. Host fortunately,
however," it can be passed over Andy Johnson's
Confederate, vote, and that, while conferring the
needed protection on the defenseless, will damn
Johnson to a hell some two hundred thousand
million fathoms deeper than that prepared for
Bob Lee and "Jell'' Davis. Seymour (Ind.i
The mixture of blasphemy, falsehood and

We know nothing of the antecedents of the wri

DR. BARNES AND THE SOUTH.
The following extract from a discourse
which Rev. Albert Barnes, D. D., of Phil
adelphia, delivered to his people on hist
Thanksgiving day, is so truthful and so
timely that it deserves wide publicity, es
pecially in consideration of the source from
whence it conies :
"I hesitate not to say, on the whole, the
conduct of the South in the feelings evinced
on the termination of the conflict, lias been
such as to demand the confidence of the
North, and to secure the admiration of man
kind. The surrender of armed forces was
so complete and entire ; the cessation of
hostilities was so immediate and universal ;
the acknowledgment that they had been
overcome was so promjit, frank and manly,
the readiness to return to the Union ha3 been
so general and apparently so sincere ; the
recognition of the tact that slavery is extinct
forever has been so wisely admitted ns a
fact vast as are the conqnenc.es involved
and as the change in their habits : the read
iness to come under the arrangements for
collecting the revenue has been so prompt ;
the disposition to resume commercial inter
course with the great cities of the Kori.li has
been so marked : and tiie willingness to come
into the great arrangements of the nation for
the perpetuating freedom was so general, that
we see in this, I think, the return of the feel
ings of the best days of the Republic. There
are exceptions (individual,) but there has
never been a civil war closed where there was
less lingering animosity, or more willingness
to unite again under the same government.
Can we forget, when we think ot what is in :
the Southern bosom still, that long-cherished j
opinions, feelings and customs do soon change i
among" the people ? Can we forget how !
long after the Avars of the 'roses,' and after I
the civil wars that resulted in the establish-
mcnt of the 'Commonwealth' in England, !
on the cessations of the forms of war, the 1
fee ings that had been engendered lingered!
in the bosoms of Englishmen ? Can we for- j
gethow long after the Revolution, the banish- j
ment of James, and the accession of William j
and Mary, love for the 'Pretender' lingered '
in the hearts of a portion of that nation ; how !
firm was t ic conviction that he was the !
rightful heir of the Crown ; how strong the i
hope that he would yet come to the throne ? i
Shall we blame our Southern brethren if
gome similar ieenngs linger in tlieir bosoni3 ?"
A Pbayer For, Landlords. The follow
ing prayer, says the Charleston Times, was !
iornicny useu in me f rimer, or Hook of
Private Devotions in the Reform Church,
until the accession of Queen Marv of England'
We reproduce it now, in the hope that it
may be adopted once more in our churches j
of all denominations at least until the first of i
May : j
" The earth is Thine, O Lord,, and that is j
contained therein ; notwithstanding Thou
hast given possession thereof to the children
of men to pass over the time of their short
pilgrimage in this vale of tears. W c hear
tily pray Thee to send the Holy Spirit in to
the hearts of those that possess" the ground,
pastures and dwelling-places on the earth,
that they, remembering themselves to be Thy
tenants, may not rack and stretch out the
rents of their houses and lands, nor yet take
unreasonable fines and incomes after the
manner of covetous worldings ; but so let
them out to others that the inhabitants there
of may be able both to pay the rents, also
honestly live to nourish their family, and
to relieve the poor. Give them grace to
consider that they are but strangers and pil
grims in this world, having here no dwell
ing place, but seeking one to come : that
they remembering the short continuance of
me, may lie content with that which is suffi
cient, and not join house to house, nor couple
land o land, to the impoverishment of others,
but so behave themselves in letting out their
tenements, lands, and pastures, that after this
life they may be received into everlasting
dwelling places, through Jesus Christ our
