The Drummer Boy. BY PAULINA.

And th iun looked down on tb bright voung eyem

Twii the battle ere, for a deadly fray
Was sure to win dawning day :
And the drtunnssr breathed on hta banded knee

Oh t the boy waa bra-re when the strife began
When the cannon roared, and the red tide ran ;
But his mind went baok on that eve before,
To oft tb latah of hia mother1! door
And hl deter tana from ber childish play.
To roam wit h him o'er the hill away ;
And hie mother eyes have a mournful Joy
Aa her white ilpa murmur, " God bfcwa my boy."

And the wind's low moan hath a haunting spell
As he dark pinea murmur, M Farewell t areweU."
The morning dawned and the battle sped
The neid waa won and the turf was red ;
Night wept her tears aa the luring weep.
And stars looked down on a dreamless sleep.
—From the Young Pilot.
Lulu and her little brother Karl had
a kitten, and here yon behold an exact
and authentic portrait 01 ner.
She was a graceful, frolicsome, live
ly little creature, and specially addict
ed to running round after her own tail.
As she never could catch It, the interest
of the pursuit never abated. For you
see if she had once caught it she would
have found out that it was only her own
tail and i a wonderful meteor, amd
she woula nave found, moreover, that
her own tail was not a convenient play
thing. In this respect she was like
some young people I know of, who are
always on the chase after something
that they cannot get, and very soon tire
of everything that they Can get.
But I must tell yon about Kitty's leU
ter. In these days, you know, every
body takes to writing. Old ladies and
votmtr ladies and little girls rnd little
boys all try their hands, so that the
world is in a fair way of knowing just
how it looks to everybody; ana wny
Bhould not Pussy have her turn I
At all events, one morning Karl and
Lulu found the following letter tied
round her neck with a blue ribbon.
Did Kitty write it! What did she
write with! Did she tie it round her
own neck t And where did she get the

Karl and Lulu erne scampering to
their mamma (who perhaps knew more)
with the following letter :
My Dkak Folks rs ths World :
You thinlr you know a good deal and
perhaps you do, but there is one thing
you don't know, and that is how kittens
feeL People think that I never have
anv cares or troubles, because I J,o

mV often cover deep sorrow.
In the first place, let me ask you, Karl
and Lulu, how would you like it if a
great giant, six feet high, could catch
you up any minute, and whirl you over
and hang you with your head downward
. or tumble you over on your back, and
roll you round as if you were so much
hay! Well, that is the way I am
' treated half the time. Nobody consid
ers what I like. Nobody ever says,
"Here, Pussy, would you like to be
. taken up ! " or " Will you please to let
" me! " but they catch me and do all sorts
things to me, without even saying " By
Havn't kittens some rights that child-
ren are bound to respect! I have
had a hard and suffering life, I can tell
you, frisky as I seem. The first I can
remember I was taken, mewing and

given to a lady who wanted a plaything

me round under his arm with my head
hanging down" till all the blood ran into
it, and I Verily thought I should
die. When be felt affection
tionate he used to squeeze me till
yelled with pain. He used to pull me
out and-siouble me up as ii 1 had been
molasses candy, and when I cried and
scratched, all the comfort I got was that
mamma would say, "Dens little .Billy,
how afraid I am he may get scratched !
A kitten amuses him so that I like to
have him have her, but at the sam
time I am afraid she may hurt him."
Dear little Billy had a temper of his
' own, I can tell you. When nurse want
ed to brush his hair, or when she took
papa s razor away, wtucn ne naa neipea
himnftlf to, then Master Billy would
grow red in the face and throw himself
on the floor and. kick and scream like a
"Get him the kitten ! " mamma
would say. " Where's Billy's kitten "
Then I would be caught and given to
him to torment; he would throw me
across the floor, pull my tail, strike me,
clutch me round my throat and in other
ways work off his spite on me.
"I do believe, ma'am, hell kill that
kitten some day, " nurse ventured to say.
if he does," says mamma.
How I used to hate the little monster
and wish a great big king cat, a lion
cat, might get him and shake and box
him round as he did me ! I suppose if
a lion should give Billy to her cubs to
amuse them when they were out of
temper there would be no end of wail
ing and weeping, but for my part I
don't see but it would be a tolerably
. fair proceeding. What right had she
to use me for a plaything for hr dear
little Billy ! But little Billy was so
convinced that I was made for his
amusement that every day he invented
a new thing to do with me. He put me
in a box with stones and rattled me.
He threw me into a tub of water to see
if I could swim, and kept me

came and took me out, and then
he held me to the cooking-stove to dry
till I thought I should have been burn
ed up. At last he tried to put my eyes
ont with the scissors, and then I made
such long welts in his arm with my
claws that his mamma was frightened.
What a bawling there was to be sure,
what a kissing and crying and consol
ing ! " Poor, dear, darling Billy !
naughty, naughty, wicked kitty !"
I had ran with all my might, and got
into the cherry tree. I used to run to
this cherry-tree very often before, but
then somebody always climbed it after
me and got me down because Billy
roared and kicked and screamed at such
a rate. But this time the silly old wo
man was frightened. " That vile kit

I only kept it because it amused Billy,
but if it is going to act so, I'll tell Mar

" O ho ! there you are, are you,

find me ; " and so down the cherry-1
tree I ran, and up the apple-tree, and
jumped on the wall, and raced along
till I came to your garden, and jump-

dear little Lulu ! I remember what, a
sweet, clean, nice-smelling white apron

have been with you I have had pretty

The girls in the kitchen have no

Harriet Beecher Stowe.
A New Musical Instrument.
At a concert recently given at TJtica,
N. Y., the new musical instruments in
vented by Mr. H. B. Horton were for
the first time exhibited to the public.
These instruments are a doice camp-
ana, a cornucindia, and a vinia bass.
The doice campana is about eight feet
high and ix faet wide. Fastened to
the front surface, or sounding-board,
by screws running through their cen
ters are fifty glass bells. In front of
the sounding-board, which is in an up
right position, the key-board is arrang
ed on an ordinary cabinet about the
size of a medium cabinet organ. Be
tween the sounding-board and the cab
inet the playe r sits, with his black to
the bells. The key-board inc'ndes two
sub-key-boards for hautboy and flute
attachments, the bellows for which,
together with the one controllingpneu
matic drum, is managed by a treadle.
The vinia bass is about six feet high,
and presents the surface shape of a palm
leaf. One string, which is as heavy as
the deepest string of a piano, extends
from the base te the curl at the top.
At the lower end of this string a rosin
wheel, about six inches in diameter,
turned by a delicate crank about haH
way up tne instrument, comes in con
tact with the string, upon which stops
producing a great variety of netes are
played by a key-board. The keys and
stops take the place of the fingers on
the ordinary bass-viol, and the rosin
wheel answers to the bow. With the
exception of the horn attachments,
which give it an imposing appearance,
the cornucindia is similar to the melo
deon. The viula bass is powerful and
capable of great execution. The music
of the doice campana is similar to that
of the bell obligate of an orchestra.
The ingenious mechanism of its move
ment enables it to exeoute the most rap
id movement, and therefore its capacity
for execution surpasses anything attain
able by hand bell-playing. It is a con
densed bell-ringer a sort of "Swiss
family " by machinery.
One of the papers tells the story of a
man coming into church after the ser
mon had begun ; whereupon the preach
er paused and said to him: "triad to
see you, sir 1 Gome in, eome in ! Al
ways glad to see those here late who
can't come early." To which saluta
tion tne stranger, taking his seat, as
coolly replied: "Thank you; would
you favor me with the text!" "Cer
tainly," was the answer; which was
done, and the discourse moved on as
before. This recalls a . Missouri inci
dent. .One cold night Bev. Dr. Ezra
S. Ely, of PretJbyteriaa fame, was
preaching in a prairie farm house1
When about a third through the ser
mon, two late comers rode np to the
door and entered. The Doctor slopped
and said that, as these friends were
very cold with their ride, the meeting
would sing a hymn while they were
warming themselves. Which being
done, ' he observed that, as they had
taken so much trouble to come, he
would begin his discourse again for
their benefit; and taking the text ac
cordingly, he commenced onoe more at
the beginning, and repeated his ser
mon, rather more to their edification
than to that of the rest of the audience.
Destroying Mutilated Currency.
On Saturday upward of two millions
of canceled fractional legal tender and
national bank notes were consigned to
the flames and destroyed in the base
ment of the treasury. The note burn
ing business is no unimportant thing in
the United States Treasurer's bureau.
Almost every day in the week a large
amount of condemned money is thus
destroyed, though seldom so large a
sum as above referred to. The Treas
urer has caused an apparatus to be con
structed in the lower regions of
the treasury which does the work
of destruction thoroughly and ef-l
fectually. A large iron furnace has
been made which is so built as to con
sume its own smoke, and into which
the condemned notes are placed by a
committee appointed for the purpose.
The concern is then dosed, and an im
mense draught of air is conveyed into
the furnace by means of a hydraulic
force pump, which is supplied from the
.Potomac water pipes in the building.
The notes are then ignited, and the
blast soon reduces them to tinder
which passes through a pipe into
reservoir of water, through which it is
strained, leaving nothing but the chem
ical refuse, resembling somewhat the
slag from a copper smelting furnace.
A LtJCKT Date. The number 27
seems to be a fortunate one for the
German armies. On the 27th of Sep
tember Strasbourg capitulated. On
the 27th of October Metz surrendered.
On the 27th of November the Germans
achieved important victories over the
army of the Loire and the Goribaldian
torees m tbe Department of the Vosges.
On the 27th of December commenced
the bombardment of Mont Avron, the
first of the Parisian forts assailed, and
which soon yielded to the enemy. And
now comes me intelligence tnat on tne
27th of January the terms of the capit
ulation of Paris were agreed upon. If,
now, after three weeks' armistice which
have been arranged, the treaty of peace
should be concluded on the 27th of
lebruary, as is not improbable, the
chain would be complete. Verilv. if
this was a superstitious age, the Ger
mans might be expected to commence
all their important enterprises on the
27th of the month. The coincidence
is, to say the least, remarkable and
As the railways no longer suffice for

begun to traverse the roads. Trains of
one hundred and fifty or two hundred
two-horse wagons repeatedly pass
through Cologne, bringing oats direct
from Dresden and Nancy to the troops
before Paris. From Dresden to Nancy
takes for such wagons four and a half
weeks, and frm Cologne to Versailles
fourteen days, so that about seven
weeks elapse before the transport
reaches its destination. One may im

VISIT TO A JAPANESE PRINCE.
A Gorgeous Palace and a Royal Entertainment.
Yokohama Correspondence of the San Francisco
Prince Koshin's castle, 200 years old,
with its grand walls and giant towers
echoing with the tread of horses and
troops over its graveled walks and re
sounding with bugle calls, really made
up a pioture such as I had read of in
fancy tales, but never expected to be
hold. After passing through the outer
moat we went through gate after gate,
each guarded by troops, and frowning
in their barbaric sullenness of two cen
turies of time upon us, until at last we
now halted in front of the grand en
trance and all dismounted save the min
ister, whose horse was carefully lead up
the stone steps to the door itself, and
he was carefully assisted to
alight so as not to touch the
earth on his descent; thence into the
castle, np flights of stairs through wind
ing corridors, filled with armed retain
ers and cringing servitors, until all
knowledge of the route we had come
was completely lost, we were led to the
grand reception hall, where, seated in a
barbaric state, surrounded by guards
and ministers, was the Prince of Koshin
Our reception was very courteous but
exceedingly brief, all being almost at
once shown into an adjoining room,
where his prime minister received us
while our minister remained with the
Prince. I did not get to see enough of
this august personage to gratify me. I
saw enough, however, to make me feel
that we were safe ; that we had not been
invited in for slaughter, but for hospit
able purposes, and so felt at ease.
From here we were allowed to ascend
to the tops of the castle's towers, where
we could look out upon a most won
drous scene of beauty, composed of
city, country and sea, with our ship
rolling at her anchors in the distance.
On our return from tnem we were
informed that we were to remain during
the balance of the day and that night in
the castle, and on tbe morrow go to tne
hunt. This was very pleasant, but I
was filled with wonder to know what
we would be given to eat, and how we
should sleep. 1 was soon put to rest
on this score on being asked into a ban
quet hall, in whichawas spread a table
in European style, and all our dishes were
served in courses in approved style of
French cookery; and when we were
ready to retire at night, I found splen
did European beds awaiting us, each
being cut off and hemmed in by mag
nificent screens, forming many rooms
out of one. This struck me as being
exceedingly strange, but it being very
agreeable, I asked no questions, and
took my share. I was amused by the
bedding, however. It consisted first of
a silk mattrass and pillows, and lastly of
a large dressing gown of silk at least
four inches thick, with sleeves, etc., in
which you were first dressed, and then
laid out on the mattrass like a huge
giant. They looked cumbrous, but
were really light and very agreeable.
At early dawn we were aroused, given
toast, cheese and coffee, and again
marched out with squads of cavalry and
infantry for a hunt. I was lost in won
der to know how it was expected that
we were to kill any game thus escorted
with all that pomp and confusion ; but
very soon we reached the bants oi
river, crossing which in boats awaiting
us, we found a little nastily constructed
road had been made during tne night,
leading into an immense tract of rice-
nelds. Then our gu'ra halted, and we
found ourselves in the presence of
laree delegation of country esquires,
each of whom, it seems, had received
orders to stop all work in his rice-field
for the day. and summon his laborers
to do duty as setters and pointers for
the cruests of the irnnoe.
Then followed the hunt. Such an
other scene ycu never saw. The rice
fields were alive with wild geese, ducks,
snipe and the most magnificent cranes
that ever stalked the earth. Wholly
unused to being shot at, they fell easy
victims to our barbarian arms, and, as
they would falL away would go the
naked coolies in a rush into the water
to hunt up and bring back the game
while others raked and swept the walks
clear of all leaves and dirt ; and some,
surrounding themselves with bundles
of rice sheaves. would wait
ahead to serve as shelters for
our near approach upon the game;
and others, with chairs and re
freshments, were constantly at hand to
accommodate yon with both when you
wanted rest. The least wish was antic
ipated and instantly gratified. Of such
a royal pleasure it was never mine to
taste before, ion were not allowedto
carry gun or game, to get from under
the shade unless you wished to do so,
and at every hand boats, chairs, or
whatever you might wish, were yours.
Thus we sported untill noon, when
we were taken all the way back in
barges, and again regaled with a ban
quet as a parting meal, escorted by the
troops and ministers, and sent off to our
ship with pile, of fruit, meats and
nicknacks, enoih for a ship's company
A Heartless Case of Desertion—A Rejected
Prayer—Alone and Penniless.
From the Sioux City Journal.
Early last spring a man by the name
of Eddy, hailing from the eastern part
of this State, arrived in this city.
After a residence of a few weeks he
took his departure, and was not heard
of afterward until a few days ago.
Following close upon the heels of his
departure, there arrived in the city a
woman accompanied by a small boy.
The woman soon made her business
known to the City Marshal, represent
ing that she was the wife of Eddy, and
the bright little boy was his son. Mrs.
Eddy remained in the city until her
money was nearly exhausted before she
succeeded in finding a trace f her husband's
whereabouts. By extensive corres
pondence and inquiiy,she finally learned
that he was located on Brule Creek, in
Dakota, for which place she imme
diately set out with her little boy,
thinking that their presence, perhaps,
would again rekindle the old love he
once bore for them. On arriving there
she found him living with another
woman, named Kerr, and he perempto
rily refused to have anything whatever
to do with either her or the boy. The
Cr, deserted and destitute wife turned
back upon the miserable wretch,
and left him with his paramour. She
was now entirely out of funds, but held
a promissory note for $75 against her
husband, which she had come in pos
session of before leaving their home in
the eastern part of this state, which
she sold for $20 to a Mr. Carpenter, a
farmer in Dakota, and made several
attempts to see her husband and induce
him to return with her and the baby to
their home in Iowa ; but all in vain.
He was completely estranged from
them, and entirely in the power of his
paramour. Sb9 gave him up in des
pair and set out for her home. On ar
riving in this city again, about two
weeks ago, she found herself out of
money, among strangers and unable to
obtain employment. Her condition,
coming to the notice ef Mr. Baker, the
proprietor of the International Hotel,
of this city, he took her to his house
until she could get employment, where
she is at present. But Mr. Baker, feel
ing unable to keep her :nv longer, has
notified her too seek lodgjigs elsewhere.
The case is a very hard one, and the
poor woman is represented as being

An Incident of the Richmond Fire.
Prof. Mafllefert, of New York, who
has been engaged as engineer in the
removal of the James River obstruc
tions, had a singular adventure at the
fire in Richmond the other day. He
was stopping at the Spotswood House.
He says :
" Being one of the first to wake up at
the alarm of fire I lost no time in partly
dressing and succeeded in saving near
ly all my wardrobe, two trunks and a
large bundle ; after which I turned my
attention to others in need of help, and
on my fourth trip up to the second
floor was fortunate (or unfortunate)
enough to find in bursting a room door
open two gentlemen, side by side, en
joying the effects of Christmas
spiritually. After trying, but in
vain, to wake them up to
the reality of their awful position I
turned one ont of bed, and he, being
awakened so suddenly and seeing the
flames in all their ghastliness through
the influence of malt extract, took me,
no doubt, for some intruder, and not
being prepared or willing to submit to
intrusion, straightway, with energy
worthy of a better cause, threatened to
mash me, and with sundry adjectives
went to bed again. Finding no time
was to be lost I used force, and for a
time a fierce struggle was carried on- in
this room of death. I was now under,
not on top. Finally, after being scratch
ed and kicked unmercifully, I got the
best of this life-wrestling, and dragging
the poor fellow through the haU, flung
him headlong down the narrow stairs
into the arms of some men who happen
ed to be there, lveturning to his com
panion I found lii in beyond help the
flames had caught their unconscious
Why Soup is Wholesosck. The Lon
don Food Journal says : Physiologic
ally, soup has great value for those who
hurry to and from their meals, as it al
lows an interval of comparative rest to
the fainting stomach before the more
substantial beef and mutton is at
tacked, rest before solid food being as
important as rest after it. Let a hun
gry and weary merchant or lawyer rush
in mcdias res plunge boldly into roast
beef, and what is the result I The de
feat is often as precipitate as was the
attack. When the body is weary the
stomach must be identified with it, and
cannot therefore stand the shock of
some ill-masticated, half-pound weight
of beef. But if a small plateful of light
soup be gently insinuated into the
system, nourishment will soon be in
troduced, and strength will follow to

PREPARATION OF COMPOUND
EXTRACT BUCHU. The component
parts are BUCHU, Lono Leaf,
Modb of Preparation: Bnchn, in
Tacuo. Juniper Berries, by distillation,
to form a line gin. Cubebs extracted
by displacement with spines obtained
from Juniper Berries: very little snirar
is used, arid a mall proportion of spirit.
It is more palatable .than any now in
Bnchu, as prepared by druagirrtB is of
a aark color. It is a plant that .emits
its fragrance; the action of a flame de
stroys this (its active principle,) leaving
a dark and glutinous decoction. Mine
is the color oi ingredienta. The Bnchu
in ray preparation predominates. The
smallest quantity of the other ingredi
ents are added to prevent fermentation;
upon inspection it will be found not to
be a Tincture, as made in Phannaoopcea,
nor is it a syrup and therefore can be
used in cases where cases where fever
and inflammation exist. ' In this yon
have the knowledge of the ingredients
and tne mode of preparation.
Hoping tnat you will favor it witn a
trial, and that upon inspection it will
meet with your approbation.
V lili a feeling of profound confidence,
I am very respectfully,

Chemist tnd Druggist of 19 year's
experience. ' .

ists in the world.)
