NEARLY HOME. BY THOMAS F. WINTHROP.
Nearly homel We have folded our hands,
Have finished our work in the world:
Our boats are, drifting at will on the tide,

Nearly home! In, the quiet haven,
Jard by the beautiful town,
Where we catoh the sound of the harnora'
And catoh a gleam of the crown.
Noarly hornet The darkness behind us, ,
And before us the gate of day;
Over the desolate wearisome traok, '
Over the thorny and sandy war. ; ' -

And our hearts are faint and weak;
And a quiet rest 'neath the beautiful palms,
JJy the pleasant, river the footsteps seek.
Nearly homel In the silent' watohes, t -
In the quiet that slumber brings,!
Rings in our ears the heavenly music
And the angel harps with their goldon

The jasper walls and the pearly gates,-,
We see the spires of the beautiful palace
Where lor our coming the blessed wait.

Nearly home to a land of praise '
To clasp the hands and hear the voices '

Select Story. THE HAUNTED SHIP.
The following Darratlvo is by Wash
ington Irving, but it is not ineluded io
his OQlIccted works,- and ruuBt be new to
most of our readers:
Tho world abounds with ghost btoriop,
but it is exceedingly difficult to get them
at first hand ; that is to say, from per
sons who have actually soen tho ghosts ;
this may be the reason why they have
fallen into discredit with the dubious.
I onco heard a story of the kind from
one who oame within an ace of being an
eye witness, and believed io it most hon
estly. He was a worthy captain of the
sea ; a native either of Nantuokot or
Martha's Vineyard I forget whioh; at
any rate, a place noted tor its breed of
hardy mariners. I met with him in the
anoient city of Seville, having anchored
with his brig in the Guadalquiver, in the
course of a wandering voyage. i(
Our conversation, ono day, turned up
on the wonders and adventures of the
sea; whon he informed me that, among
his multifarious cruisings, he hud once
made a voyage on board of a hauntod
ship. It was a vessel that had been met
with driftic half dismantlod, and with
flagging sails, about the sea near the Qulf
of Florida, between the mainland and
the Bahama Banks. Those who board
her found her without a living soul on
board; tie hatchways wero broken open;
the cargo had been rifled ; the decks fore
and aft were covered with blood; the
shrouds and rigging were smeared with
the samo, as if soma wretched beings had
loen massacred as they olune to them.
It is evident that the ship had been plun
dered by pirates, and to all appearanoe
the crew had been murdered and thrown
overboard. ' .
The ship was talon possession of by
the finders, and brought to BoBton, in
New England ; bat the sailors who navi
gated her to port declared they would not
make sucn another voyage tor all the
wealth of Peru. Tbey had been har-
assed the whole way by the ghosts of the
murdored crew, who at night would come
out ot the companionway and the lore
castle, run up the shrouds, station them
selves upon the yards and at the mast
heads, and appear to perform all the du-
lios ot the Bhip.
As no harm had rosultod from this
ghostly seamanship, the story was treated
lightly, anc the vessel was fitted out for
another voyage, but whon ready for sea
no sailors eould bo got to embark in her
one lay tor some timo in uoston harbor.
regarded by the superstioious seamen as
a fated ship; and thoro she might have
rotted, had not the worthy captain who
related to me the story, undertaken to
oommand her. lie succeeded in getting
Borne naray (ars, wno 6tooa lees in awe
of ghosts, to aooompanv him, and his
brothorxin law sailed with him as chiof
When they got fairly to sea, the hob
goblin crew began to play their pranks.
At night there would be tho duoe to pay
in the bold; such racketing and . rum
maging, as if the cargo was being over
hauled ; bales tumbled about, and boxes
broken open, and sometimes it seemed as
if all the, ballast was shifted from side to
side. All this, was heard with dismay by
tho sailors, and even the captain's broth
er in-law, who , appears to bars been a
very sagaoions man, was exceedingly
troubled at it. As to the oaptain him
f, he honestly oonfessed to me that he
never Baw nor Heard any thing: bat then
he Blopt soundly, and when once asleep
was hard to be awakened.
Notwithstanding all these ghostly va
garies, the ship arrived at the destined
end of her voyage, whioh was one of
the South Amerioan rivers under the
line. ; The oaptain proposed to go in his
boat to a town some distanoe up the riv
er, leaving his ship in - charge of Lis
brother-in-law. J. he latter said he would
anohor her opposite to an island in the
river, 1 where he oould go on shore at
night, and yet be on hand to keep guard
on her : but nothing should tempt him to
sleep on board. The brew all swore the
same. The captain oould not reasonably
object to snob, an arrangement : so ' the
ship was anohored opposite to the island,
ana the. captain departed on his expedis
tion.'. ,l ' ; ' ;
For a time all went well : the brother-
n-law and his sagacious comrades reau.
arly abandoned the ship at nightfall, and
slept on shore;' the ghosts - then took
oommand, and the ship remained as qui-
tiT . at anchor as though she bad , been
manned by living bodies instead of hob
goblin spirits. ' One night, however, the
captain's brothor-inHlaw was awakened
by a tremendous storm. He hastened to
the shore. ' The sea was - lashed up in
foaming surges ; the rain came down J in
torrents tho' lightning c flash ed--the
thunder bellowed. It was one of thoso
sudljen tempests only known in the trop
ica, i The captain's brothenin law cast a
rueftl look at the poor tossing and labor
ing ship. , He saw numbers of uncouth
being busy about her, who wero only to
be dejcxlbod by tho flashes of lightning,
or bypil .fires that glided about the rig
ging f$ beard occasionally tho piping of
the boatswain's whistle, or the bellowing
of a , hoarse voice through a speaking
trumpet, Tho ghosts were evidently
trying to save the ship ; but a tropical
storm is sometimes an over.matoh for a
ghost, a boblin or Satan himself. In a
word, the ship parted her cables, drove
tefjrt the wind, stranded on the rockB
and there she laid her bones.
VVheij the captain returned from his
expedition up the river, he found his late
gallant essel a mere hulk, and recoived
this woiderful aocount of hor fate from
his sagacious brother-in-law. Whether
the wrck oontinued to be haunted or
not he pould not inform me; and I fon
got to ask whether the owners reoovered
any thing of the underwriters, who raro
ly insure against aocidents from ghosts.
Such is one of the nearest chanoes I
have ever had of getting to the fountain
head of a ghost story. I have often

commenced her accusations against the

as to diBturb the service and attract the
attention of all present Shortly all
attempts to subdue their voices ceased
and the wordy war waged unrestrained.
At length the opponents took a Dosition

all the senseless folly that our Govern
ment is committing. It has two classes
of debts one, the - greenbacks . which
circulate among the people and cost the
(iovernmest no interest. Another is the
'bonds,' which are exempt from Siate and
local taxation, and which oost the Gov

it is exerting itself to ctnool the green
back debt, by withdrawing it' from

debt, and so etopping an exorbitant drain
of interest. A person ia private life
who would thus act would be considered
a fit subject for a lunatio asylum. Yet
this is the matured and condensed
wisdom of the Republicans in finance.
Cincinnati Enquirer, '
Chime Amonci Females. The police
returns show daily an increase of
drunkenness and crime among women
which caunot be , wondered at when we
see our sidewalks filled with Buch crowds
of courtesans as daily appesr between
the hours of eleven o'clock in the
morning and two o'olock P. M. It is a
painful faot, but nevertheless true, that
the proportionate of orime oommitted by
females is very little below that commit
ted by the sterner sex How to remedy
this growing evil is a matter well worthy
tho consideration of philanthropio men
and women who are ever ready to aid in
ameliorating the condition of humanity.
It may somewhat shock the nerves of the
moral portion, of our community when
we state that there have been, within the
last month, upward of 200 females
arraigned before the court for crimes and
misdemeanors, one third of which were
for vagrancy. This is a melanoholy taot,
but no more strange that true. Lvmn-

Don't Tattlk. Children, don't talk about
each other. Don't call one of your school
mates ugly, another stingy, another cross,
behind their backs. ' It Is mean. Even if
they are ugly, Btingy or cross, it does you no
good, to repeat it. It makes you love to tell
of faults it makes you uncharitable your
soul grows smaller your heart looses its
generous blood, when you tattle about your
friends. Tell all the good you know about
them, and carry the sins in your own heart,
or else tell thorn to God and ask him to par
don them. That will be Christ like. ' If any
body says to you, "0, that Mary Wills did
such a naTfghty thing!" 1 call to mind some
virtue that Mary possesses, and hold it up
to her praise. For your own sake, learn to
make this a habit.

A Cold Sleigh Ride.
Tub Pottsville Journal, of last week,
published an aooount of a sleighing
party of ladies and gentlemen from-St.
Clair," having ? ceea attaoked on . the
mountain, as they were going from that
place to Mahony City, and robbed. The
Journal bald i If may' seem- inoredihle,
but it is positiuely stated that the rob.
bers stripped the oooupants of the sleigh
of their clothing, having , nothing but
the underolothing of the women and tha
Buffalo robes that were in the sleigh.
The robbers compelled them to turn back
and return to St, Clair. We have since
learned that the oooupants of the sleigh
were a party of married men with women
other than their wives, who were out for
a good time "on the sly," thinking their
spouses kn6w nothiog about it; and that
tho "highwaymen ' were the wivos of the
aforesaid gentlemen, who,- having got
wind or the delinquency of their liege
lords, had disguised themselves and laid
in wait for the party, determined by this
means to avenge themselves and puuisn

Value of Time.
One fine Bummtr morning, ' when
Franklin was busy preparing his news
paper for . press, a lounger stepped , into
tho store and spent an hour or more, in
looking over the books, &c, and finally
taking one in his hand, asked the shop
boy its price. - 11 ' 1,;
'One dollar,' was the answer.
'One dollar I' said tho lounger ; 'can't
you take less than that V ''''
'No, indeed one dollar is the price I'
Another hour nearly paBsed, when the
lounger said : . ' '''

'Yea, he is in the printing. offioe.' '
'1 want 1 to see him',' said the lounger.
The shop boy , then immediately , in
formed - Mr. Franklin that a . gentleman
was waiting to see him. Franklin was
soon behind the oounter, when the loun
ger with book in hand, adddressed him
thus: '' ; ;: ; ; -. ;:
'Mr. Franklin what is the lowest you
can take tor this book ?'
'One dollar and a quarter,' was ths
quice answer, ; , ,
t 'Ono dollar and a' quarter f Why,
your young man asked me only dollar.'
, 'True,' said Franklin, 'and I . oould
have better afforded to take a dollar then
than to have been taken out of the of
fice.' The lounger seemed surprised,',, and
wishing o end the parley of his own ma
king, said ( ......

'One dollar and a half!1 Why you of
fered it yourself for a dollar and a quarter-'
. . '
'Yes answered Franklin, 'and 1 hid
better have taken that price then than, a

went about his business (if he had any,)
and Franklin returned into the ' printing
