THE CHILD'S PRAYER.
Through all the gathering mists or age.
One scene aud season Ungers'yet;
The flrst enstamped on memory's page.
The last I ever can forget;
'Twas when tha orb of day declined
lleneath the many colored west,
I'd seek my mother's knee, and tlnd
Upon her bosom perfect rest;
And when the stars begun to shine
From out th* ether, blue and deep,
Kupeat the prayer whose opening line
Was "Now'l lay me down to >lecp."
O, childhood's hours—how calm, how bright!
How like a dream th.v pass away!
That mother sank to sleep one night,
And woke in everlasting day!
Then manhood, with its p.Tils, came;
Its high—wrought hopes, its vague de
sires;
Ambition's fervid, quenshless Sum*,
And passion's baleful lurnac* Ares,
But oft the thought had power to sway,
Amid temptations tierce and deep—
"If thus 1 sin, how cau I suy,
"I pray the Lord my soul to keep?
Around ns flit, on silent wing,
Th* viewless messenger of deatli:
Where health Is now, an hour may bring
The burning brow and levered breath;
Alas, how many sparkling eyes,
Thut close to-nl ht on scenes of mirth,
11. r.rc another morn shall rise,
Hlnill look their last on things of earth!
I know, era morning dawn*, tor m*
The silver cord or lire may break;
O, Father, take me home to Thee,
"If I should die before I wak*!"
For "earth to earth, and dust"
Must soon be chanted o'er our sod;
And for tlie rest, we can but trust
The ever living Father, Uod!
O, welcome, faith! with what delight
We near the river deep aud wide,
When friends we love, with forms or light,
are trailing on the other side!
When lira's low tide is ebbing fast,
And sens - and thought their throne for.
sako,
B* then my earliest prayer my last:
"I pray the Lord my soul to take."

David , Pannill, Delegate, from Orange
couhiy, on the IWA of April 1870, before
(he members of tlie General Assembly in
caucus assembled, upon the question of
nmninatini MUKiWifbM /<"" < A « Judgchip of
that county.
Mr. Chairman, und gerllemen of tli • I
Geneiul Assembly. 1 appear trior* ..oil
to discharge acidly which I n»»e to two
highly esteemed friend*, to Hie pei pie
ol Orange, to myscll, aud in sonic de
gree to the state ut large. My present
position is embarrassing, yet I shall
discharge flic duty resting upon me
without X .v. m curding t■ my best
judgnient, iinil wilh hop! Unit jll-I.cc
will lie lone to all. I will mite the
tarts of i.c ease to yon, and it will be
lor you to determine your action. I
rise in the flrst place lo nominate for
the connry Judgeship of Orange, my
friend Win. \V. Scott of that emmty.—
Mr, Scott is about tw.iity-tive years of
age. lie studied ittiv and graduated
witli distinction at the University of
Virginia; since which tinio he has been
engaged in prosecuting his profession;
and his friends prudsct for him an ele
vated pus ton in Hie Inline. Sunn lif
ter Ihe election ol Oth July, 18o'J. sev
eral gent li'llien of Orange id li gh re
spectability applied to me to g.ve my
support to Mr. Scott lor the position
lor ivhit'll I uaw nominate him. 11 iv
uig known Mr. Scott irom his youth
tip, knowing his integrity and talent,
appreciating Hilly his worth in all re
spects, mid sensibly Iceliiif a Sympathy
thai bound me lo nun and his highly
esteemed family, I without hesitation
promised a support in his lavor, bc
li 'Viug Inin to he a man who, if elected,
would discharge the duties ot the office
«ith credit to himself, with honor to
the public, und Willi a rigid unbending
fidelity to every principle of justice and
of law, I know Mr. Scott to he recmii
inetiileil hy some ul the rirst men of the
county, untl zealously iudorsed by one
ol the Hi at men, if no' the vwy flrst
man of Virginia. Mr. Speaker, uud
gentlemen ot the Assembly: —I am iu
tnrmed that Ihe reiis.iii why no peti
tions ars before you in favor o. M'..S„
from the people of Orange, is because
no effort was iiiudc by him orhis trieiids
to gel up petitions with signatures fur
your guide aud instruction, pielcririg
slmplv to leave it to your _mlg(.nie it
and derision alter you had been mloi in
ed nl hi' character and qtialiflcat'ons,—
Mr. S., is also without Ine rccoininen
dation ot the Orange bur. save one, and
without the r commendation of ihe
lawyers of adjoining enmities; tor the
reason nr 1 have been intoi mcd, that no
effort, was made to obtain such recom
mendations. One legal gentleman of
respectability residing in Orange, has
recently written a letter iv favor of
Mr. Scott, to which I beg leave to cull
your attention. I also respectfully n-k
your.alteii'.ion to Ihe recommendation
of certain members ot the legal profes
sion ofthe Valley ol Virginia; among
whom Mr. 8. at one time resided, en
gaged In the practice of law, You
would pei haps wish to know something
of his "war record.' - He was a boy
volunlrercd at the commencement of
hostilities, and wasengagcd%n lie mili
tary service of the State and the Con
federacy almost, if not quite, through
out the war. .Now, Mr. Chairman and
gentlemen, such are the mat.rial lacts
'.•oiinected wilh the position of Mr «.,
as far ,i« I know, as he stands before
you a candidate lor the Judgeship of
Orange, lie is a young gentleman of
talent and integrity, and it elected to
Ihe office to which lie aspires, 1 doubt
not thut such are his legal qilsllticatloiu,
Ids sense of duly, his laudable uuibiiiiiu
lor honourable professional distinction,
Ins put pride el family und exulted
lineage, fur some ol the best blond uf
the nation courses in ids veins, that the
rights and prosperity of citizens will he
effectively guarded and defended, as fill
as power may be exercised hy him in
view ot right and Justice, and hy au
thority of law. So'uiiiih. Mr. Chair
mun, for Mr. Scott. It is requited ut
me, sir. by a large nuuioer of ilie pen
pie of Orange to put in anamination an
other gentleman for tin- Judgeship ol
that county, and in discharging this
duty, not self-assumed but tv leg,ti
ll ul (' sp.horl y, Imposed upon mc by a

or the case, I have no tear hut that 1

Sir. wlietlnr approved c-r condemned,
what I consider the psth it lienor, of
duty, ol justice, i. marked out, and I
will follow It, and take what may be
the consequences, whether for ncs: nr
woe. A private obligation connected
wilh a public question, assumed last
t.iininrr by the request of some *f mv
sriends iv favor of Mr. Scott, does not
tics me from :i public duly imposed
upon me by other numerous friends us
their representative. So assumed or
imposed obligation on the part of one
port mn of a constituency can or should
relieve the representative ot ail obliga

t.ai the representative of the penplo of
Orange, nu; bound by every principle
Ol fairness Sad justice lo give heed lo
the expressed wishes of every portion
of that people. Many ot the citizens of
Orange, require me to nominate Capt.
Wm.G. Williams far the Judgeship ot
that county. This question oi appoint
ing judges coming within the limits,
tbe p. rview of my public duty 1 owe il
to those constituents to do us they re
quire _n. iv this matter, and 1 do it in
my honest opinion, .without the least
infraction ot previous pledges.
l'ermlt me then, Mr. Chairman and
gentlemen of (he Assembly, to place in
nomination for county Judge ol'Orange,
Wm. O. Williams, a resilient and na
tive of that county. Capt. Williams is
in the lv it-fit meridian of lite, being a
beut forty-rive years old, of unexcep

health, and tine mental endowments.—
lie received his early legal education
mainly at William and Mary College,
and has practiced his profession tor ü
bout ten or twelve years. I present

SENATOII LEWIS AND BIS r».BS£ IB
COBGU-.BS.
Washington, April 23.— The votes
cast in the Senate by Senator Lewis iv
the Interest ot the extreme Radical*
has been a matter of mystery especial*
ly iv view of the liberal elements try
which he was elec'.ed to represent the
mother ot States. The story is hers
thai the Senator is like other mortals
human-tl at he is affected bj stilish
considei'urions, and iluit his brother
(Charles) was appointed to a foreign
niis.siun as a consideration lor the voles
ol the senator 111 support ol the "•intol
erable ltudicals."
The senator has biu n tugging' away
at the public jug quite vigorously, and
is very exacting 111 his demands I'm of
ficial patronage. Like new converts
geneiullv, he i.s umuhg the most, ultra
uud Intolerant, and his vote may be
I, ii In.l iv the list ofthe lUUSt ill. Ileal ol
Radicals, His compensation is to be in
the distribution of official putionage,
und at the end of his term ill the United
States Senate he will be retired to pri
vate life, never more to be heard of.
THE DBY GOODS TBADE.
The Imports of foreign dry goods at
New York Vor the mouth of March lull
a traction behind the corresponding to
tal of Inst year- but are still very large
for the season. Tbe amount lauded
there during the month, reckoned iv
'their lorelgn gold value, freight and
dury not. lidded, was about, thirteen mil
lions of dollars. The warehousing
movement tor the month has been as
usual a liltio i! favor ot the market, the
withdrawals from bond being llnmst a
million in ex.ess of the total entered
for warehousing. The tot.il for three
mouths is a little in excess of tlie cor
responding ligures ut last year. The
lirst three months for I*ll7 were larger,
the total being W1...3.000. The de
cline in gold and the unsettled condi
tion of tinancial affairs have conspired
to limit the profits of the season's busi
ness M well as to dimmish the vi.hime
af trade If linpoi ters can make both
ends meet, and carry their ca/iilal ln
racr in another year, it is riir.ught it is
as much us a 'in.- rdv ol ilie.nc.iu hope
to accomplish.

quickly tilled to its utmost extent with
the invited spectators. Shortly after
twelve, the bridal party, led by the
bride clinging to the arm of her lather,
swept up the isle and formed in a cor
don trntiml the altar. Iv accordance
with the English custom, there were
no groomsmen, but twelve attendant
bridesmaids, each wearing iv graceful
drapcy around her head a pale pink
veil, that seemed to have caught its soft
hue from lbs blooming roses ot the
bright face It Shadowed. As they stood
iv airy loveliness around the altar
hinged with evergreens, the bride, in

Tne impressive ceremony of ihe Epis

After the ceremony, the wedding
