Whoso mangled furmg, in many a grave,

Sliall dark oblivion spread her wing

Aud gailaii't the horses below !
Ye evcibi.-tiug pines, whose wail,
With nioiirnful dirges, swells the gale,
Sweep your high harps, with requiem
For koMiers of the Southevu land,
Who gave their life,

Tm'it iuigiii uol vicv the victor's sp)il ;

For joys we lost, for woes wc reap!

For that bvt cause aud those who fell,

In pangs of deep though silent wo ;

Though aged sires, in slow decline,

The New Baby A Boy's ciiloqu$
Vos, there's another of 'em up stairs
now." I knowcil it 'cause papa told 1110 I
must Lo quiet and sit down in a corner
with my books, and musn't play bull, nor
ask Willie Smart to come in and help me
put up my p uzzle together. Then thcro's
a cross nurse that's always scolding mo for
fretting in her way, no matter where I get.
.Besides Miss Cadalf was here to-day, and
she took me ou her knee, patted we on
tho back just like tho cook when I am
choking, and said my nose was another de
gree out of joint, but I knew better for
this is tho third time sho has told 1110 so,
and it is no more out of joint than it ever
was. She's a hateful, goggle-eyed old
maid that's what she is.
I saw it too. It's got a little round,
red head, without any hair, with great
deep wriuklies instead of eyes ; and whon
it cries it opens it mouth as though it
meant to swallow itself. Ta helped me
upon the side of tho bed, and told me to
kiss my dear, pretty little sister; and
when I wouldn't, and called it a horrid
ugly little thing, ho said I was a naughty
boy, and then tho nurse shook me, and
said 1 ought to be ashamed. I didn't get
to kiss my ma at all. I knew better than
to try it, for once, when another baby
came, I climbed up on tho bod, and put
ting my arms around her neck, hugged
and kissed her ; but all the time I had
my knee on tho baby's head so I was
whipped and put in my crib without any
supper because I didn't know it was there.
Little Annie thinks it nice to have a new
sister, but she was tho baby before and
don't know any thing about it. I can rc-
member long, long ago when nia used
call me her "sweet littlo darhnjr,:
dandled me on his toot and said i was a
fine fellow," and aunt Julia declared that
I was a "perfect little angel," but then
Tom came, and all my pretty toys" were
given to him 'cause ho was the baby, atfd
I was cuffed and scolded by every body
'ccpt grandma, and she's good to 1110 yet,
though there's been two other new ones
I wonder whero all tho babies come
from ? Ma says the Lord sends them. I
wish he wouldn't send any more to our
house ; we've got more'n enough uow. It
might bo nico for them if they could stay
little always, but they have to grow big af
ter a while, and thon they ain't no better
off than the rest of folks. I rather think
if I was a baby I'd osk tho Lord to send
mo Tvhero I'd not grow any bigger, and
then I'd have nothing to do but to lio on
my back, and chew my toes, and have
folks say I was tho "darlingest, cuningest
littlo ereaturo they ever laid eyes on."

Aro Second Harriages Proper ?
Custom tolentes this abominable social
evil, if it diics not approve it. It can not
do lc.3, when tho lax stato of public mo
rality makes divorces even not only possi-
ue, but c.-.sy (t accomplishment. Mar-,
ihgo by tnauy is no longer regarded as a
-'vino institution, but simply an alliance
lo bo entered into, and dissolved, at tho
caprices of folly, lust, or convenience.
There are but few person:), comparative
ly, but that believe in tho immortality of
.'je soul ; and that those who have gone
before us to the spirit land will be recog
nized, and hold the same relation to us
hen we meet them there that they did
ki'Pii! (lirrefiiro. in snob, n niarrincrft is fur
! ),l-."2:lT plurality of wives or hus
tL nJ w.-nwl lrt.nuiJii:it excite
ihe same horror which it does in all right
minded persons when such a state of
things is contemplated here. In this light
I view it, and I can not divest the idea
from my mind that the contraction of
more than ono marriage by the samo per
son is no less than a kind of polygamy.
How agonizing and tcrriblo it must be
to a devoted and tender wife when sepa
rated from her partner in tho halcyon
days of tlieir wedded life, after waiting
many long years in tho spirit land for the
dear one left behind, to find perhaps two
or three later wives of her husband set to
her before his arrival ; when ho at length
come.'', to have her claim disputed, or at
least receive only a moiety of that love
which her priority should claim as a whole.
Asido from this there aro other consider
ations connected with second marriages
which aro not less repelling.
First, marriages aro usually contracted
when yauth, love and romance cement the
union with tenderness and sacrcdncss
which no latter periods can approach. Tho
human heart pours out its best and purest
oblations upon a first union, and all other
connections of tho kind aro in comparison
only ridiculous burlesques upon the insti
tution of marriage. The heart can never
yield but to ono the divine glow which
distils the truo elixir of wedded life.
When this one is removed, tho fountain is
dried up in this world, and no rod wield
ed by a sccoud love can again make it
flow with its original abutidanee and
How ridiculous, farcical, iniquitous,
then, are all marriages save the first ! How
abhorrent the bare idea of a connection of
this kind must bo to all such as are bask-
: in the, happy fruition of a first union !
To think, for instance, at sonio future day,
that a beloved wife or husband may be re
moved and others step into their places;
at their boards other heads to preside ; at
their firesides new faces to sinilo or frown
upon them. The arms that embraco them
and the kisses they receive to be bestow
ed upon a mercenary and selfish interloper.
When death takes away a beloved wife
or husband, tho bereaved, instead of cast
ing their eyes around for ono to fill the
place, should live on tho memory of their
loved ones; look upon the aflliction as on
ly temporary ; bear the lost one ever in
mind ; shape every act as though their
eyes were upon thorn ; and as they pro
ceed onward, nearing tho goal, their love
should be constantly increasing so as to
be fully prepared for that reunion which
will bo final aud eternal.
Printers and Paradoxes.
A printer is the most curious being liv
ing. Ho may havo a bank, coins, aud not
be worth a cent ; have small caps, and
have neither wife or childron. Others
may run fast, but he gets swifter by set
ting fast. Ho may be making impressions
without eloquence ; may use the ley with
out offending, and be telling the truth ;
while others cannot stand while they sot,
he cau set standiug,aud do both at the same
time ; havo to use furniture, and yet have
no dwelling ; may make and put away pi,
and never see a pic, much less eat it dur
ing his lifo ; bo a human being and a rat
at the same time ; may press a great deal
and not ask a favor ; may handle a shoot
ing iron and know nothing about a can
non, gun or pistol ; ho may move tho lev
er that moves the world, and be as far
from moving the globe as a hog under a
mole-hill ; spread sheets without being a
housewife, ho may lay his forms on a bed,
and yet be obliged to sleep on tho floor ;
he may use a dagger without shedding
blood, and from the earth he may handle
stars; he may be of a rolling disposition,
and yet never desiro to travel ; he may
havo a sheep's foot, and not bo deformed :
never without a case, and yet know noth
ing of law or physio; be always oorretting
errors, and ho growing worse every day ;
havo embraces, without having the arms
of a girl around him ; have his form lock
ed up, and at the same thno be free from
jail, watch-house,, or other confinement ;
his office may have a hell in it, and not
be a bad placo after all; he might be
plagued by the dovil, and be a Christian
of tho best kind ; and what is stranger
still, bo honest or dishonest, rich or poor,
drunk or sober, industroua or lazy, ho al
ways stands up to his business.

The Women of East Tennessee.
. l'erhap no one cainc has contributed
more tj the advaucem uitid' o'ir section of
the Stato in material wealth, than our wo
men, more especially the wies and daugh
ters of our fanners and collators, whose
humble homes, dotting the valleys and the
sequestered glades of our mountains, add
beauty to the lauJ.ic.tpe.. During the war
both armies ravgoj this country with ruth
less cruelty and. barberism. The bread
of the sick and the helpless was ruthless
ly taken uiid destroyed, and yet, thanks
to our women, but little actual suffering
for something to oat or to wear occurred.
Contrasting their habits with the women
of some of the neighboring States, we find
this marked difference. Hero woman, by
her iudustry, t' rift ami economy, not on
lyjirepwfi t' o family food and clothing,
but in a great measure' provides Itl The
valuo of tho exports of feathers, beeswax,
herbs, roots, dried fruits, butter, poultry
and other commodities, the direct results
of their efforts, exceed the value of the
exports of wheat. They are more than
sufficient to pay for all tho coffee, sugar
and salt consumed by tho entire rural
population. Add to this tho vast quanti
ty of homespun cloth sho weaves the veg
etables she cultivates, and you can form a
slight cstimato of her worth. This is not
true of tho womon of other States or of
other sections. These women look more
to dress and display than to economy and
thrift. Hero tho farmer's wife is indeed
a help mate. There she is an ornamental
appendage of tho household, scarcely ta
king interest enough in the family to wash
the faces of her own childron. And now
the crowning glory of our women remains
to bo mentioned. In her contributions to
our population sho is worth a hundred
commissioners of immigration. Sho not
only brings tho immigrant but feeds and
clothes hiiu, nurses him when ho is sick,
teaches him how to work and makes a use
ful citizen of him, and all this sho docs
not only without complaining, but from
the look of pride that brightens up her eye
when you ask her how many children sho
has and sho answers "fourteen," you would
think she delighted in it.
A Moving Sermon.
Wo have a subjoinod discourse, deliver
ed by a Southern divine, who had removed
to a new field of labor. To his new flock,
on the first day of his ministration, he gavo
some reminiscences of his former charge,
as follows :
"My beloved brethren, beforo I take
my ter.tj I must tell you about my parting
with my obi congregation. On the morn
ing of last Sabbath I went into tho meet
ing house to preaeliniyfarewclldiseour.se.
Just in front of 1110 sot the old fathers and
mothers in Tsreal ; tho tears coursed down
their furrowed cheeks; thar tottering forms
and quivering lips breathed out a sad faro
ye well, Brother Watkins ah! L'ohiiul
them sot the middle-aged men and ma
trons; health and vigor beamed from eve
ry countenance ; and as they looked up I
could see iu their dreamy eyes fare ye
well, Krother Watkins ah ! behind
thorn sot the boys and girls that I had
baptized and gathered into the Sabbath
school. Many times had they been rude
and boistrous, but now their merry laugh
was hushed, and in the silence I could hear
fare ye well, Brother Watkins, ah !
Around, on the back seats, and in the
aisles, stood and sot colored brethering
with their black faces and honest hearts,
and as I looked upou thcnl could see a
fare yo well, Brother Watkins, ah !
When I had finished my discourse and
shaken bands with the brethering ah ! I
passed out to take a last look at tho old
church ah ! The broken steps, the flop
ping blinds, and moss covered roof, sug
gested only faro ye well, Brother Wat
kins ah I I mounted my old gray mare
with my earthly possessions iu my saddle
bags, and as I passed down the street tho
servant girls stood in the doors, and with
their brooms waved me a fare ye well,
Brother Watkins ah ! As I passed out
of the village tho low wind blew softly
through the waving branches of the trees,
and moaned faro ye well, Brother Wat
kins ah ! I came down to the creek ;
and as the old mare stopped to drink I
could hear the water rippling over the
pcebles a faro yo well, Brother Watkins
ah ! And even tho littlo fishes as their
bright fins glistened in tho sun-light, I
thought gathered around to say, as best
they could fare ye well, Brother Wat
kins ah! I was slowly passing up the
hill, meditating upon the sad vicissitudes
and mutations of life, when suddenly out
bounded a big hog from a fenco corner,
withaboo 1 aboo ! and I came to the ground
with my saddlo-bags by my side. As I
lay in the dust of tho road my old gray
maro run up tho hill, and as sho turned
the top sho waved her tail back at me,
seemingly to say faro yo well Brother
Watkins ah 1 I tell you, my brethering,
it is affecting times to part with a congre
gation you havo been with for thirty years

That Bull Frog. '
A couple of Ynnkeo girls put a Lull
frog iuto the hired man's bed, to see if
they could get him to talk. Daniel threw
tho frog out of tho window and said not a
word. fcSuon alter ho put a bushel of
chestnut burs into tho girl's bed, and
about the time he thought they would
make tho least shadow, Daniel went to
their door aud rattled the latch furiously.
Out went tho light and in went the girls,
but they didn't stick, though the burrs
did. Calling to them, lie begged tbcm to
lie quiet, he only wanted to know if they
had seen anything of that pesky bull frog;
he'd giu two dollars tu find him..

his recent visit with this result :
Ho is said to have expressed tho hope
that tho'libcral Conscrvfltive,RepubliciiiB .

North would succeed in the Fall elections.
His estimate of parties is that tho North

is left of the principle in that section.

When Mark Twain wa3 in the ndy
Land, the monks showed 'him the "Tomb
of Adam," which evoked the following
gush from that super-sensitive nature:
"The tomb of Adam ! how touching it was
hero in a laud of strangers, far away from
home and friends, and all who cared for
mo, thus to discover the grave of a blood
relation. Tho unerring instinct of nature
thrilled its recognition. The fountain of
filial affection was stirred to its profound
est depths, and I gavo way to tumultuous
emotion. I leaned upon a pillarand burst
into tears. I deem it no shame to havo
wept over the grave of my poor dead rela
tive. Let him who would sneer at my
emotion close this volume here, for he will
find little to his taste in my journeyings
through tho Holy Land. Noble old man
he did not live to sco mo ho did not
live to see his child. Aud I I alas!
did not live to sco him ! Weighed down
by sorrow and' disappointment, he died
beforo I was bom six thousand brief
summers beforo I was born."
The Knoxville (Tenn.,) Whig says;
"Drs. Divino and Overton, of Tazewell
now have in their possession a natural mon
strosity a child with two heads, four, arms,
double thorax and abdomen, throe legs,
two sepcrate and distinct vertibral col
umns, two hearts, two pairs of lungs, and
two genitals. The gender is feminine.
Thoy aro united nearly face to face, and
precisely resemble Rita Christina, with
the exception that the unnatural produc
tion has threo logs, whilo the former has
but two. Our Informant assures ns thoro
is uo humbug about the matter, and that
he saw this curiosity himself, which was
the illegitimate offspring of a girl living
in Tazewoll. It is now dead.
There is nothing purer than honesty
nothing sweeter than oharity; nothing
