POETICAL. TO-DAY AND TO-MORROW.
If fortune with a smiling face
8trew roses on our way,
When shall we stoop to pick them up ?
To-day, my love, to day.
But ahould she frown with face of oaie,
And talk of comng sorrow,
When shall we grieve, if grieve we must ?
To morrow, love, to-morrow.
If those who've wrong'd us own their faults,
And kludly pity pray.
When shall we listen and forgive ?
To-day, my love, to day.
But, it atera Justice urea rebuke.
And warmth Irvm Memory burrow.
When ah ill we chide, if oblde we dare ?
T morrow, love, to-morrow.
If Love, estranged, should onus again
Are harmed unlets we pay,
Whan shall we struggle to be just?
To-day, my love, to-day.
But if our debtor tail our hope
And plead his ruin thorough,
When shall we weigh hit breach of faith
To-morrow, love, to-morrow.
If Love, estranged, should onoe again
Her gentle smile display,
When stall we kiss her proffered lips 1
To-day, my love, to-day.
But, if she would Indulge regret.
Or dwell with by-goue sorrow,
When shall we weep, if weep we must
To-morrow, love, to-morrow.
For virtuous acts and harmless joys
The minutes will not stay ;
We've always time to welcome them,
To-day, my love, to-day.
But care, resentment, angry words.
And unavailing sorrow.
Come lar too soon, it they appear
To-morrow, love, to morrow.
THE THREE CRIMES.
An Eastern Tale.
Ilamet Abtlallah was an inhabitant
of a grotto on one of the shores of
Mount Olympus. When he stood at
the entrance of his humble dwelling,
he conld embrace at one glance all
the territory originally possessed by
Osman, the founder of the Ottoman
Empire ; and, as he fire times a day
offered up his prayers to Allah, he
invoked blessings upon the head of
Solymanthe Nagmncent,the reigning
Sultan in whose time be lived. In
deed, Abdallah was renowned for his
sanctity ; and the inhabitants of the
vicinity of his dwelling treated him
obi marawi renpeu.

and he endeavored to melt the heart
of the evil Genii ; but all his prayer
and entreaties were unavailing. He
accordingly went to reason wilhiu

thou wilt find a jar of Cyprus wine

retired to rest in hit own cell. Thou

The Genii gradually became less
palpable as he spoke these words ;
and, by the time me conciumng mcu

i.;. itmn tnwanl the orotto. with a
sorrowful heart; but ho would not
confide his anticipated disgrace to
to the affectionate parent who wel
corned his return.
The day passed rapidly away ; and
in the evening Ilamet and his sire
knelt down as usual at the door of the
grotto, with their faces toward the
south, to raise their voices in prayer.
When their vespers were concluded,
the old man embraced the son tender
ly, and retired to the inner part of
the grotto. ....
As soon as Ilamet knew that his
father slept, he lighted the lamp; and
as the Genii had told him, he saw a
large moasure of wine standing upon
the table. The unhappy dervise
raised it to his lips, and drank deeply
fo the lntoxicatine draught. A glow
of fire seemed to electrify his frame,
and he laughed as he sat the vessel
down upon the table. Again he
drank; he felt reckless and careless
of the consequences. He drank a
third time; and, when hs hah emptied

"The Chief culled me into the oili. e
ono morning, and told me that a check
for $1.000 had leii drawn by the
confldeutinl clerk of well-known coin
mercial house, and had been cashed
at the bank where their fund were
deposited. It was n forgery, mid
the clerk had left as soon as llicnioii
ey was obtained. His name was Hen
ry Harding, hU parents lived in one
of the interior parishes, and it v-.n
supposed ho had gone there before
setting out elsewhere. 1 could only
learn thnt he wasi very young tu.l o:'
rather effeminato appearance. This
was all tho description I could ascer
tain. The alhiir had not been blown
abroad, and tho Chief directed me 'to
work up tho case.' You kno w that
S and I always work together.
I called him and wc had a couaulia
tion. He proaecutod researches here,
while I went to the country. Thin
arranged I wan soon on my way. I
had found out where the family of
young Harding lived, which I had
hoped to reach before niht, but in
this I was disappointed. Long be
fore duak, dark clouds began to form
along the edge of the horizon ami ;
climb rapidly to the zenith. . 1 he
thunder and lightning came at inter-
I was soon assured Uat
one of those semi-tropic storms,,
which arc so Irequent niucsunimoi,

fury. I hastened forward, therefore,
looking eagerly arouud for some
place of shelter. I had proceeded
but a short distance, before I saw
just ahead, a wood-man's hut I got
into this as soon as possible. I mui
hardly got comlortably sheltered, lie
fore a gentleman and la.ly dashed up
to the door and dismounted. Like
myself they were seeking shelter
from the storm. The man was middle-aged,
and exhibited in his person
tho strou" aud athletic frame, the
open brow, and genial, pleasant face
of the Southern planter; but there
was in his countenance now and then
innrli nf sadness, a seemingly tx-
. - -
quisite senso or sorrow, strangely
out of keeping with what the m:;nj
should have been. II: companion
was a young girl of exquisite beauty,
with dark, soulful eyes, and hair
black as night. She looked, indeed,
lUnrrMftr of the troiucs. and the
tall, splendid form was regal 111 it
nmiestv. She was sucu a woman a
a man could wish to live for, and. it
ueod be, die for. They were both in
traveling costume, and from their
convcruation. I judged they were fa
ther and daughter, just netting out
011 a journey, and endeavoring to
reach the river in tune lor an tip-go
ing steamer. Shortly after their ar
rival a negro boy drove up iu a curt
containing trunks, tin 0110 01 liiese
was the numn of Mr. Harding, La.

A "Stunning" Love Letter.

model to letter w riters :
My Deai: Miss C. Kvery time I

down like a churn dasher. Sensa

it like young goaU over a stable roof,
and thrill through it like Spanish
needles through a pair of tow linen
trowsers. As a gosling swimmeth
swiiu I iu a nea f glory. Yimous of
ecstatic rapture, thicker than the
liair in a blacking brush, and bright
er than tho hues of a humming bird's
pinious, visit me in my slumbers, and
home on their visible wings, your
image blands before me, and I reach
out to grasp it, like a pointer sna
ping at a blue bottle lly. When 1
first beheld your angelic perfections,
I was bewildered, and my brain
whirled around like a bumble bee
under a glass tumbler. My cj'es
btood open like seller doors iu a
country town, and I lifted np my
ears to catch the silvery accents of
your voice. My tongue refused to
wag, and in silent adoration I drank
iu the sweet infection of love as a
thirsty man swallowcth a tumbler of
hot whisky punch. Since tho licrht

up by my boot strap3 to the top of

SAN SALVADOR, July 21, 1868.

radical enough to resist the return of
the old fogy copperhead doctrines.
I don't see whom the Democratic

perheadism and repudiation arc 111
the ascendant, anil all Union and

fancy who can be selected that could
enter the rate with Graot with the
hope of success.

Greenbacks replied, ''I remember
well w hat the promise on me was
given for. In 105 I was young and

One day I was taken out of a little iron
