Kind friends, all bail ! A year has (ped

Into bis shoes a new Tear trips.
And claims a weloome Crass all Bps.
But ere with joy we greet the New,
We'll pa; the Old his tribute doe
Win uuurn him truly, though we barrow
The words in which we Tent oar ssraw.
Yes, the year is growing old.
And his eye is pale and bleared :
Death, with frosty hand and coki.
Flocks the old man by the beard
Sorely ! sorely '
Through woods ani mountain passes
The winds like anthem ralL
They arr chanting solemn Basses :
Singing. " Pray tor this poor soul,
" Pray ! pray !"
And 'he hooded clouds, like friars,
Tel! their beads in drops of rain.
And patter their doleful prayers !
Bui their prayers are all in rain :
All in rain !
Ah, then, the Old Year dleth.
And 'the forests utter a moan,'
like the voice of one who crieth
In the wilderness alone,
" Vex not his ghost !"
Than come wit. wrfW roar.
Gathering and sounding on.
The storm wind from Ijabraior,
The wind Euroclydon,
The storm wind!
ilowl : howl ! and from the forest
Sweep the red leaves away.
V oulii the sins that thou itbhorrest,
Oh, Soul ! could thus decay,
And be swept away !
For there shall come a mightier blast ;
Tl re shall be a darker day ;
And the stars, from heaves oast.
Like red leaves, be swept away.
Lliriste Eleison !
That was a song as is no such
Can torn at your poor Carrkr's touch ;
W bote bumble muse will dare no more
Than chirp, like snow-birds at your doer.
Of what she daily sees and feels.
As Time drives on his ch riot wheels.
Mow C.st he drives, relentless Cite!
Catch Lim, and bold him 1 make him wait
'Till you can fresco that bald pate.
You'll earn the thanks of small and great.
No use ; he's off, with rapid wing ;
Beware his scythe's relentless swing!
Not this the day, or ears tbe clime.
Where every one can " take his Time."
How strange the earth is ne'er a peace !
No Kooer does our own war cease.
Than other powers begin, to fight.
Though they don't equal "we-uns" quite

STORY OF THIS JTOSES.
At D( witz. in the neighborhood of Prague,
there once lived rich and whimsical old
farmer, who had a beautiful daughter. The
students ol Prague cf whom there were at
that time twenty-five thousand, often walked
in the direction of Dew itz and moie than
one of them offered to follow tbe pluogh, in
hopes of becoming ibe soc-ui-Uw of the
fartmr. The first condition that the cun
ning peasant set on cacb cew servant wan
this : "I engage you," he would say, "for
a year, that is, till the cuckou sings the re
turn ol spring ; but if , from now till then,
you ray once you are not satisfied, I will cut
t ff the end of your nos.-. 1 give you the
same right over me," be added, laughing.
And be did as be said. Prague was lull of
students with toe ecds ot their noses glued
on, which did not prevent an ugly sear, and,
si ill less, bad iokes. To return from tbe
h.:ai disfigured and ridiculed was well eal
ctilaUd : coul the wannest passion
I A Yuur-g man by the name of Coranda,

i. iry tl.e adventure. The farmer received
' . itii " iih : i-i usual good nature, nnd, the
, Ij.ii -i in made, sent him to the field to work.
; Ii. t.riaksdst-tnse the other servants were
c.iled. !.ut good care was taken to forget
j C'urat.da. At dinner it was tbe same. Cor
! anda gayc liimsell no trouble about it lie
I went to tbe house, and while tlie farmer's
1 wile was feeding the obickens, unbooked an
' enoTiuous bam lrota the kitchen rafters, took
j a huge loaf from tbe cupboard, and went
j back to the fields to dine and take a nap.
"Arc you satisfied?" cried the farmer,
vh muiuvu at iiigua.
"Pcrlccdy -tL-fitd," said Coran.i; "I
have dintd Utter than you have."
At that instant tbe farmer's wife came
rushing in. crying that her ham wss gone.
Coranda laughed, and the fanner turned
"Arc you not satisfied?" asked Coranda.
"A ham is only a ham." answered his
master. "Such a trifle does not trouble
me." But after that time be took good care
not to leave the student fasting,
Sunday cam-. Tbe farmer and bis wife
seated themselves in the wagon to go to
church, saying to (voranda, "It is your busi
es to cook the dinner. Cut up the niece
of meat you see yonder, with onions.carrots.
leeks, and parsley, and boil them all togeth
er in toe great rut over the kitchen tre.
"Terr well, answered Coranda.
There was a little pet dog at the farm-
bouse by the name of Parsley. Coranda
tailed bun, skinned nun, cut bun op with
the meat and vegetables, and put the whole
to boil over the kitchen tiro. When the
iarmcr's wife returnee, she called her favor
ite ; but, alas ! sbe saw nothing bat a
Uoodj akin hanging by tbe window. j
" r bat nave you done 7 ' said sbe to Car-1
What you ordered me, mistress. I have
boiled tbe meat, onions, carrote. and leeks
end parsley in the bargain."
"Wicked wretch : cried the farmer,
bad vou the heart to kill tbe innocent
creature that was the joy of tbe house ?"
Arc you not eatigtan? said lor&cda,
taking bis knife from bis pocket.
"I did noc say that," said tbe tanner.
A dead dog is nothing hut a dead dog."
But be sighed.
A few days alter, tbe farmer and bis who
went to market. Flaring their terrible ser
vant they said to him, ''Stay at home, and
do exactly what you see others do."
" I ery well, said Uoranua.
There was an old shed in the yard, the
roof of which was falling to pieces Tbe
carpenters came to repair it, and began, as
usual, by tearing down the roof. Coranda
took a ladder and mounted the root ot the
house, which was quite new. hinglts,latfa.
nails, and tiles, be tore on everything, tract
scattered tbem all to the winds. When the
farmer returned, tbe house was open to tbe
J. , .
'Milam : 1 ' eaia ne, "west new tries nave
you played me?"
i nave oneyea you. master, ausvtereu
Coranda. "You told me to Co exactly what
I saw others do. Are you not estUfied?"
And be took out his knife.
'Satisfied !"' returned the larmc-r ; "why
should I not be satisfied. A few shingles
more or less will not ruin me." But be
.Night came : tbe farmer and bis wife said
to eaeh other that it was high time to get
rid ot this Incarnate demon. As is always
tbe case with sensible peoiile, they never
did anything without consulting their
daughter, it being the custon in Bohemia to
taink that children always have move wit
than their parent'.
"rather, ' eaia Helen, "l willLtfc in toe
grcst tear tree early in the moraine, and
call like tbe euckoe. You can tell Coranda
that the year is up, since the cuckoo is sing
ing ; pay him, and send him away."
harly in the morning we plaintive cry oi
the cuckoo was heard through the fields.
Tbe farmer seemed surprised. " N ell, my
boy, Spring is come," said be. "Do you
bear the euckco singing yonder? I will pay
you, and we will part good friendr.
"A cuckoo !"' said Coranda ; "that is a
bird which I havealwavs wanted to sec"
lie ran to tbe tree and shook it with all
his might, when, behold ! a voting girl fell
from the branches', fortutmtely more fright
ened than hurt.
"Villain !" cried tbe farmer.
""Are you not satisfied?" said Coranda,
opening bis knife.
"Yretch ! you kill my daughter, and you
think that 1 oubt to be satitfied. lorn fur

said Cora mis. "1 baye kept my word ; do

hwJd teforc bis lace. "You will eurcly let

"It depenason what yon offer," said Co-
" WiHjou take ten sheep far it ?'
"No-; L would rather cutoff yBUr uom."
And ho ehErpcned his knllo on tbe door-step,
"Father,'1 said IIcloi, "the fault wai

"Yes," replied Coranda. j
"I mike one condition," said the young
girl We will make tbe same bargain ;

"Good," replied Coranda.
rather it was the touguc ; but
Never was a Goer weUdit seen in Prague,
and never was there a happier household.
Coranda and the beuatiful Helen were a
model pair. Tbe husband and wife were
never heard to complain of each other ;
they loved with drawn swords, and, thanks
to their ingenious bargain, they kept fur
long yeais both their lore and their uoees.

"Isn't there a dog here?" said sbe pres- l
"Yes, darling," said the dog's owner, as
sbe banded it to the child, looking uncom

hers seemed to charm away its nervousness.
"What a dear little fellow?" said Clytie,

FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARY 1. 1867.
A Groivint,- Country.
As long ago a 1815 Elkanah Watson,
Port Kent, published some statistics of the
growth of the United States, and some esti
mates drawn, thercfrom.o fits further growth.
The latter were ridiculed at the time by
many ; but time has singularly verified their
correctness. Jlr. Wstion's estimates for
1820, 1S30 and 1840 ilo cot in any case vary-
00,000 from the actual census. He estimat
cd that oar population in 1SC0 would tc
23.135.3C3. It was by the census 23.191,-
S70. lis placed our population in 1SC0 at
31,753,821. The cen.;s of 1SC0 makes it
31,145,080. His calculations cxtcnied to
the year 1900, Ins enimtto for which was
Keiaembcriog that the ponulation of Great
Britain is but 29,000,000; of 1'ranrc
37,000,000, or Austria 35,000,000 ; or all
Kurope 286.000,000, and or tho World
1.01,000,000, it will be allowed that if the
estimates for the future approximate any
where near as cljsely to the truth us those
ior tbe past, we arc likely to have here a
"great Country." That it will be one
I country 'or a generation to cotne, tecni cer
' tain ; that it will offer ir renter attraction
insn ever to immigrants irotu otner lands is
likely ; and it is by no means a wild antici
pation to conclude that many who have been
mourning in years past over tbe ruin of the
Country may live to see it contain one-tenth
of all the population of th. lobe, and stand
ing confessedly the mightiest nation of the
Thi Pesmox or Co.ncits. In a lecture
in Boston on the 27 ult , Hon. Geo.
S. ltoutwell, of Massachusetts, said :
"From what I know of the purpose and
opinion cf Congress, I do not hesitate to My, that
the great majority of the loyal men hers" of the
two Houses are in favur of declarine - br solemn
resolution or public act, that the governments
1 t up in these ten (Southern) States are ittnpil
! "'d invalid, and shall exercise authority no
nger; and by lezislative authority establish
L'uvernnwnts in those districts, call them terri
t rial governments, or what you will; and in
t!.? set establishing those governments decide
tnatstl loyal male citizens shall be entitled to
b right of suffrage."
This is an important statement. That the
n-tjority of (.'ongms, bclicic that there lias
I). en undue assumption of authority by tbe
President, in the reconstruction of the
Situthern States, is unquestionable ; that tbey
propose that Congress, not Mr. Johnson,
si'all establish tbe terms of admission, k
; m undoubtedly tbe case. But that Con
g. est would formally adopt the doctrine of
'- State suicide," and undertake to legislate
fvr tbe late rebel States a? ttrritoriis, we
1 are not believed, nor do we, Mr. lljulwell
I., tbe contrary it that is what he means
n twithstandio;. The governments which
C -tigress will organise, will be, we take it,
Siote governments, based on tbe loyal pop
ulation. Washington dispatches say that tbe Gov
ernment is in possession of advices which
leave no room to doubt that the British Cab
inet will recognise the A Is hams claims, and,
in return, our own Cabinet will recognise
t) British claims against this country.
Indus Hostilixs Despatches from Fort
L ramie report a grand coalition of twelve
tribes oi Indians, for hostilities against the

A Lecture from a Oewincra.
We have had fur sever .1 days u,on our
table a rcly from a deuttirat in New Ynrk,
to a refent article in the Keki Put.-, in
which we alluded to the niuVimeot of the
Chicago Tints, Boston Post, and utber de
moeralic journals, in favor of universal suf
frage, as an evidence of the d miiralixatioa
and coming break up of the Democratic patty.
"Acnlis," stoutly dinies, with more word
than uc can vu-11 find room fur, that there is
any prospect ol such a break up, or that the
papers alluded to are true representatives of
tbe demoetatic party. He g ics on to say :
No journal, bowevtr it may have aeo rded
with their previous opinions, may be raid to
lead tbem (the Democracy). When tbey discover
a sheet, hitherto their friend, advocating the
cidw of their oblical adversaries, tier east it

exultation. It can have no hand in producing,
ahile it holds its place in oar ranks, that tuetaed
day of social repose, which you so classically
term the " Political Millenium "which is. in
met, nothing more, in your conceit, thaa the
complete triumph of the Kadical cause.
L'ven could it under these circumstance, re
tain hj mfiuenee over the Democratic Party,
and bv its arts persuade its nnwilliog members
to enter the Radical fold, wo u!J yeu dare to
draw taiUt'ul picture of the " millesium."
whose approach it would thus assist to acceler
ate? That you might, perhaps, 1 1 prevailed
upon to make the attempt I shall not dispute ;
but I would be little incline 1 to credit its truu-
fulntu upon its completion. If its con
templation b- as repulsive to you as it a to me,
you would certainly hesitate to disclose its most
oharaeteritMe features. If the Radicals triumph
without bloodshed, a ' Millenium " will follow
which we would willingly avoid. It way be
characterised by repose ; but it will be the
repose of a people held in bonJjs. by the
chains which they have forged with
their ova hands, and too unambitious to aspire
to a better condition. It will arise, not from the
reciprocal affections of a magnanimous people,
but from tbe aisolute necessities of our pal Ui
eal condition. It will be a result, not of mu-
fu7 conproatw, but of tbe entire alsenec of
public spirit and psUriotic impulse m the na
tion. It will come when the American spirit
shall have left our bosom ; when our r rerenct
for the Constitution shall be directed to a less
worthy object ; when all the barriers, erected
in 1738 against oppression , shall be levelled ;
and when tbe power, now running through a
thoutand well ehcsen-ehannels. shall paw over
the bed of a single wide and swollen stream.
Its blessings (!) will te deferred, till ne are in
uaisisfe and unable to appreciate them ; till
we are apathetic and disinclined to tnjoy Iktm;
till we are efrerruoWand powerless to oianaai
cat' them. Such an issue ot the struge!e, now
going en in this country, may be dulant ; but,
unlets tkc work of tke last Jite years be undone,
it is inevitable. Agitation originated it ; the
late civil strife, brought on through Radical
agency for that exclusive purpose, has invigor
ated il ; it derives new energy from the oppres
sion of ihc South, the prtluie to the ertnlual
oppremon of the whole people ; and half of the
citiztLS have, at the late election!, unooLscioas
ly, I hepe, jiren tktir terdict in its fucor.
Itea-cn as wc may, but little more will be re
quired to consummate tbe infamcus scheme.
Already tbe rights of tbe State, and Ibe true
principles of Republican Government are i-aor-ed

I exonerate you from any participation in their
schemes. I can enly regret that so good an un
derstanding and so honest a heart should enlist
thetntclvei in to bad a cause.
Wc suppose we ought to doff our hat and
make )ur beet bow in recognition of such al
together unmerited praise from a political
opponent, as well as to tender our thanks
for the kind (and equally undeserved) ex
oneration from the guilt of a chare in tbe
terrible schemes and responsibilities of tbe
radicals. Will Acolis " please consider
the proper thing done, on our part !
In one thing evidently our correspondent
and we agree He sees, as plainly ss we do,
inc near and lull triumph ot republican
principles in our Country. And if he would
look at it rightly it would bo cause with him
not for such gloomy forebodings, but for
thanks and rejoicing. Ilo makes the com
mon mistake of overlooking ono clars ot
"lights " in his care for another. What
are the rights which will be ' destroyed by
he eocecsiof what he calls radicalism', but
which is true conseiVat ism ? They aro the
right of men with skins ol otic color to hold
men of toother color, or whose ancestors
were once of another color, in bondage ;
right of exclusive possession of civil, social
and political power, education and influence,
by an aristocratic class, in a dczen States
the union : the richt of Secession, or
other words, the right of a State t3 dissolve
tbe Union, and to destroy the Constitution
of the Lind ; the ricbt to " wallop one's

The loss of these "rights" will doubtless bo
a great deprivation to a portion of our peo

of manufacturing oastor oil, and that for
this purpose thc doctors prefer bodies with a
dark cuticle. This opinion is so firmly im
pressed on their minds, tbat no amount ot
reasoning will remove it, and wo know many
of them, particularly juvenile Africans, who
will not budge a foot outside their dwellings

stance of the following description of it.
When completed, the building will present
two not highly ornamented yet handsome
and substantial brick and stone fronts, of 25
feet 6 inches on Church street, by 43 feet on
Tho basement story is quite plain, of
brick, the openings having segment beads.
Thc principal story is relieved Ly a series of
brick pilasters with stone bases and caps,
from which are sprung boldly relieved brick
arches, which sdd materially to the strength

Immediately above the arches is placed a
grey stone cornice or bclt-couree, from which

feature of which is that cacb is carried up
through the third story in an elongated
opening, divided in the centre by an orna

of window opening is new in Burlington, Is
altogether very pleasing in effect and gives
a distinct character to thc entire building.

paneled frieze in brick work, immediately
above which will te placed thc dentil course

bo supported by eight or ten handsome
trusses or brackets. The cornice will be
carried across both fronts. All tho outside
iron and wood work will be painted and
sanded to imitate thc grey stone on the first
