V. TERMS -One Dollar,
From tli Ntw York Tribune,
About a week auo we published a litilo
tory under this title, detailing some of the
autluring wftich crime and misery brina up
on the poor of this city, and hinted at the
cause. That story is not yet finished. The
net night after the ialerview with that
neglected, ill used little girl, the same plain
five cry of "Hot corn, hot corn, here is your
men noi corn,' came up through our open
window, on the midnight air, while the rain
came dripping down from the overcharged
sbuds in just sufficient quantities to wet the
thin single garment of the owner of that
weet young voice, without giving her an ac
ceptable excuso for leaving her pot before her
hard task was completed. At length the voice
grew faint, and then ceased, and then we knew
that exhausted nature slept ; that a tender house
plant was exposed to the chilling influence of a
night rain ; that an innocent little girl had the
curb-stone for a bed and an iron post for a pil
low J that by and by she would awaken, not
invigorated with refreshing slumber, but poi
oued with the sleep-inhaled miasma of the filth
reeking gutter at her feet, which may be
breathed with impunity awake, but like the
malaria of our Southern coast, is death to the
sleeper. Not soothed by a dreamy conscious
ness of hearing a mother's voice, tuning the soft
fliuh, mj child, 11 still ind slumber j"
but starting like a sentinel upon a savage fron
tier post, with alar at having slept ; shivering
with night uir ', feur, and finally coranclled
to go homo tremij.ing like a culprit, to hear the
hard words of a mother ; yes, a mother; but,
ohl what a mt'Imr! cursing her for not per
forming an impossibility ; because exhausted
nature slept ; because her child had not made a
profit which would have enabled her more
freely to indulge in the soul and body-destroying
ice of drunkenness, to which she had fallen
from an estate when " my carriuge" was one of
the " household words" which used to greet
the young ears of that poor little death-stricken,
neglected street sufferer.
It was past midnight when she awoke, and
found herself with a desperate effort just able
to reach the bottom of the rickctty stairs which
led to her home. We shall not go up now. In
a little while, reader, you shall see where live
the city poor.
Tired, worn with the daily toil for such is
the work of an editor who caters for the appe
tites of his morning readers we were not pre
sent the next night to note the absence of that
cry from its accustomed spot ; but the next, and
the next, and still en we listened in vain that
Voice was not there. True, the same hot-corn
cry came floating upon the evening breeze
across the park, or wormed its way from somo
cracked-fiddle voice down the street, up and
around the corner ; or out of some dark alley
with a broken English accent, that sounded al
most as much like " lager bier" as it did like
the commodity the immigrant, struggling to eke
out his precarious existence, wished to sell.
All over this great poverty-burdened und wicked
waste extravagant city, at this season, that cry
goes up, nightly proclaiming one of the habits
of this late-supper-eating people.
Yes, we missed that cry. " Hot corn" was
Do longer like the music of a stringed instru
ment to a wearied man, for the treble-string
was broken, and, to us, the harmony spoiled.
What was that to us ? It was but one of the
ten thousand, just as miserable, which may be
laily heard where human misery has its abode.
That voice, as some others have, did not haunt
tis, but its absence, in spite of all reasoning,
tnade us feel uneasy. We do not believe in
spirit manifestations half as strong as some of
Xhe nincompoops of this world would have their
long-eared listeners think, yet we do believe
there is a spirit in man, not yet mado manifest,
which makes us yearn after co-existin spirits
in this sphere and in this life, and that there
is no need of going beyond it, seeking after
We shall not stop to inquire whether it was a
spirit of "the first, third or sixth sphere," that
prompted us as we leu our desk one evening, lo
;o down among tne anodes ot me poor, wun a
eelintr of certainty that we should see or hear
something of the lost voice, for that spirit led us
on; perhaps it was tne spirit ot curiosity; no
