Have you read in the T.tlutud of old,
In the legends the Rabbins have told,
Of the limitless realms of the air,
Have you read it,—the marvelIons story
Of Sandalphon, the Angel of Glory,
Sandalphon, the Angel of Prayer?
How erect, at tho outermost gates
Of the City Celestial he waits,
With his feet on the ladder of light,
That, crowded with angels unnumbered,
By Jacob was seen, as be slumbered
Alone in the desert at night f'
The Angels of Wind and of Fire
Chant anly ono hymn, and expire
With the son«'s irresistibte stress,—
Expire in their rapture and wonder,
As harp strings are broken asunder
By the music they throb to express.
But serene in the rapturous throng,
Unmoved by the rush of the song,
With eyes unimpassioned and slow,
Among the dead angels, the deathless
Sandalphon stand listening, breathless,
To sounds that ascend from below.-—
From the spirits on earth that adore,
From the souls that entreat and implore
In the frenzy and passion'of prayer,—
From the hearts that are broken-with Tosses,
And weary with dragging the crosses
Too heavy for mortals to bear.
And he gathers the prayers as he stands,
And they change into flowers in his hands
Into garlands of purple and red
And beneath the great arch of the portal,
Through the streets of the City Immortal,
Is wafted the fragrance they shed.
It is butalogned, I know,—
A fable, a phantom, a show
Of the ancient Rabbinical lore
Yet the old mediaeval tradition,
The beautiful, strangesupersition,
But haunts me and holds me the more.
When I look from my window at night,
Afid the welkin above is all white,
All throbbing and panting with stars,
Among them majestic is standing
Sandalphon the angel, expanding
His pinions in nebulous bars.
And the legend, I feel, is part
Of the hunger and thirst of the heart.
The frenzy and fire of the brain,
That grasp." at the fruitage forbidden,
And golden pomegranates of Edcu,
To quick its fever and pain.
The Character and Alms of the South.
The London New, in an article rebuking
the secessionists in England, thus defines the
character and aims of the South
But further, the character and known aims
of the south were from the first such as to
attract to its service the most eminent military
ability. As soon as secessions became a fact,
there was not an officer in America who did
not know that the confederacy would opon the
most brilliant career to the professional sol
dier. The notion that the south was to re
main a f»mall group of states quietly growing
cotton in a corner of the American continent,
was one which assuredly no southerner ever
entertained. Its leaders have promised to
make it a great empire by seizing neighboring
countries. Conscious of their moral isolation,
and chafing under the verdict which lite world
passes upon their fundamental institution,
they have resolved that they will have at
least one thing which the world has always
respected—power. It was not by accident or
caprice that Lee, Johnson, and *o many other
of the most skillful officers of the Union in a
moment left the old govirnra nt, and look up
with the new confedracy. Nor was the ven
ture so great as it seemed. Those officers
knew the slave power by long acquaintance
knew its burning ambition knew that am
bition had no peaceful scope, but was shut up
to military achievement knew that it had
been conversant with daring schemes of ag
gression, and could gratify military tastes and
reward military merit.
Such, then, is the slave power, complete,
unassailable, and committed to conquest, the
most formidable organization of barbarism
the world has ever seen.
The Revenue Stamps and their Uses.
We have already stated that the Postmaster
is the source from which the public will de
rive their supply. As the stamp law is'
backed by heavy penalties, and as ignorance
now a-days is a sin, people should beai in
mind that infringement of the act is likely to
occasion trouble. Every business and legal
instrument requiries a stamp. Receipts, checks
drafts, due bills, insurance polices, articles of
agreement, bonds mortgages leases, custom
house papers, and even passage tickets to
foreign ports are among the instruments of
writing that will bear no validity without a
A two cent stamp must be affixed to every
check or sight draft exceeding $20 rn amount.
Promissory nctes or drafts most beaf a five
cent stamp and upwards, according to amount
Without this the note has no legal value
whatever. Power of attorney arid certificates
ofstock need a twenty-five cent stamp. Deeds
will require from 50 cents upwards, and
