Tho little One.
There is a darkenoil chamber in tho
house. Over tho windows of that
room the thick curtains sweep heavi
ly downward, and the sunshino and
daylight are excluded. S.oft voices
mingle in gentle cadsncos there, and
Hofter footfalls acioss the covered
floor. There are no loud tones, no
harsh sound. A hui.li and a halo rest
there, like the soft drooping of an
it .I i
tingci wing. Vioso pressed to a
heart awakened to a new fount of joy
it never knew or dreamed ot before,

jios ft lutie rjaoo. Unly tho young
mother feels the blessing: and the re
sponsibility of the precious boon,
and in tho shodawy room she lies and
thinks of the little God-gift on her
bosom ; of the world untried, tho'path
nntrod, which lie before the poital of
J lie it has just crossed, lears ot love
and feeling rain down npon the little
brow, as she thinks in what way is
tho world to try tins pure young spir
it, and tvhoso hand will safest guide
it over that untrodden way. The
twilight comes, and the stars shine
out, and a benediction and a prayer
Kway liko heavenly pinions over the
gently pillowed, head of the new
born ; while through tho house a new
light shines, and manhood's brow
grows brighter and woman's eye
grows softer, and under the roof-trco
of home they "rejoice with exceed
ing great joy" for u litrJo one is
bpi ing has come, and tho babo, a
bright pretty prattler now, is out
nimmg tho Uowei s. Tho eye of affec
tion watches him anxiously, for tho
. lily disputes possesion with tho rose
on that fair check, and tho blue eye,
soft as a dew-ludon violet, is lifted
often to tho far-off skies, as il it knew
its homo was there. Slightly tho lit
tlo feet patter upon the stairs,' sweet
ly tho little voice sings through tho
house, and tli3 mother's heart melts
with tcarlul delight in listening to it.
Out on tho turf tho lather lies down
in the shade of the summer sunsot, and
like a child hirnsolf plays with his
babe, and clasping his treasure to his
irianly breast, feels his eye grow moist
with the dew of affection; and thank
fulness to God for his glorious gift.
Again there is a darkened chambor
in the house. The windows are more
deeply shadod ; tho foot-falls are soft;
tho voices are subdued and sad. The
little one is ill. Quietly upon his
little couch he lies and suffers. The
sweet lips utter 110 moan; the gonilo
features evince no pain ; and it seems
as though angels soothed him into si
lence. Again tho twilight comes;
again the stars shinoout; but there
is no joy iu the1 house, and tho pray
ers of thanksgiving aro turned to
supplications lor mercy, to pleading
at the throno of grace to sparo the
lovod one yet u little while.
Morning dawua, and there is a cof
fin in tho liouoo. A little narrow
box, not two loot long I Ilobod in
white, with llowors among his golden
hair, and waxen htcnds folded over the
heart that is still forever, lies tho dead
babe. Oh; the aching hearts that
beud over him ; oh, tho hot tears
that fall down upon tho flowers and
golden hair I How they tell of earth
ly love and tho frailty of earthly
things I How thoy tell of hollow
human hopes and tho mockery ol
mortal trust!' In' tho very room
whore ha was born, thoy close the
coffin-lid and yield him back, dust to
dust, earth to earth, ashes to ashes.
Days and months' roll away,
Time, the consoler, has laid a healing
hand upon the broken hearts of those
ho loved tho child, and they have
learned the great lesson the ' bubo
was send to teach. Tho tendrils of
the young vino, though faded, still
retain tlioir clinging hold upon their
memory ad their lovo ; but out in
tho green graveyard stands a puro
whiiu monument, novel' forgotten, and
never passod by without a tear, which
points it palo linger to tho bluo skies,
ana wnispers, "Jjay up lor yourselves
treasures iu Heaven."

A Good Woman.
"What is the? A woman with a
soul," a wholojtoul, a soul tff virtue,
puro, unsullied as tho morning roso,
a woman of a meek and quiot spirit,
which in the sight of God is of groat
price, , Such a woman is indeed a
bright and. boautilul creature.
Where she is, there is a paradise;
whore she is not, there is a desert.
Her smiles inspiro love, and raiso hu
man, nature nearer to tho immortal
source of its being. Her sweet.' pure,
virtuous and tondor heart gives lile
and soul to dead and senseloss things.
Sho is the ladder by which wo climb
from earth to heaven. She is tho
practical teacher of mankind, and the
world would bo void without nor.
Man is a wieck wanting her miser
able and unhappy his daily existence
a 'walking shadow of humanity.
Man would be hard and unpolished
granite but for such a woman. In
her what a warm and loving heart, in
which springs such a well of affection
that no age can freeze 1 She is a
more celestial than terrestial being
charming and amiablo as a girl, du
tiful as a wife, and glorious as a moth
er. Sho is the balsam of man's life
his faithful counsellor and pillow.
She can impart all the pleasures of
friendship, all tho enjoyment of senso
and reason, and all the sweets of life.
She is tho comforter and supporter of
man under his cares or misfortunes,
and tho bitter blast of adversity.
"Sho stretcheth forth hor hands to
tho needy. Sho openeth hor mouth
with wisdom, and in her tongue is
tho law of kindness." "Favor is de
ceitful, and beauty is vain : but a wo
man that feareth the Lord, sho shall
bo praised." Gulden Rule.
Tho New York Tribune says a beau
tiful young woman, named Hall, died
in tho Now York hospital from burns.
The Tribune adds :
Tho history of this unfortunate
woman is the history of thousands
in this city. Who sho was sho would
not toll, but we have good reason for
believins sho was born and raised at
Saratoga, where she lived, until with
in a year of her decease, virtuous and
happy. But, m an evil moment, sho
confided her honor to ono of tho glit
tering, heartless villains who throng
that waterintr place, and when cat
off" learned when too late that she
had been most cruelly deceived.-
Despised by her friends and relatives,
aud filled with a deep sense of hoi
own degradation, sho became a in
mate of aljouse of ill-reputo on Lau
rel street, and strove to stillo tho ro
bukes of conscience in unbridled dis
sipation. Her careor of shamo and
sorrow lasted less tban a yoar. On
tlio 2Gth of April, while dressing in
company with somo ol her lrail com
panions, her ample skirt of light
muslin, by accident, caught lire from

were extinguished sho roccivod initi

though aware that hor doceaso was at

name, saying that she had already

Extract of Oen. lane's Speech at

arrived at 4 crisis in our history Do
not misunderstand mo. Not a bloody
crisis, but one of mind, of principle

olicy, , Our pooplo, left without any
govern merit, organised in sclt-delonse
govcrmcnt ol their own. Last July
that government, here at Topeka, 'ran
against tho cannon of tho Federal
Government, left here, as Mr. Fierce
said, by accident. The Democratic
party, which in the case of Michigan,
Arkansas and California had ac-
nowledged tho right of a people to
make a State government for them
selves, now take ground against that
position and arrayed themselves
against tho Topeka Constitution.
Stephen A. Douglas excuse me for

we went on. Tho Missourians, tho al-
ies of the Democracy, came over and
triod to drive us out and they made a
pretty job of that ( Laughter). .Alone
and unarmod, a more handful of us, we
fought thorn and they could not drive
out. (Cheers.) Spring came,
and with it came thousands of true
learts and strong arms, and now we
mvo not an open enemy in the Terri
tory. Eighteen out ot every twenty
of tho inhabitants are in favor of the
?ree State organization. ( Cries of
