Resolved, That the Committee on Mil^u-y Affairs be instructed to report a bill incr^^Ag the pay of the volunteers from seven Jo fc^BT laars per month, and granting to those who serve to the end of the war, or die in the service, one hundred and sixty acres of land. The said resolution was read : And the question being put?shall the rule be suspended ? It wa3 decided in the negative, (two-thirds not voting in favor thereol,) yeas 70, nays 75. The yeas and nayt beiug desired by one-fifth of the members prtaent. Those who voted in the negative are Messrs. Stephen Adams, Alkinson, Bedinger, Benton, Biggs, James A. Black, Boyd, Brin kerhoff, Brockenbrough, Brodhead, Burt, Clarke, Collin, Cranston, Cunningham, Dan iel, Dargan, Jefferson Davis, De Mott, Dobbin, Dockery, Dromgoole, Ellsworth, Erdrnan, Ficklin, Fries, Garvin, Grover, Hamlin, Isaac E.

Sims, Sirap Bon, Stauton, Starkweather, Sykes, James Thompson, Jacob Thompson, Treadway, Vance, Vinton, Williams, Wood, Woodward, Woodworth, and Yancey?75. All those whose names are in Roman were Tories of the fir>t water, men who unscrupu lously sustained James K. Polk in all his usur pations ; and yet this Tory party claim to be the never-failing friends of the poor man, who has to work for his bread. From Graham's Magazine. A Story in Verse. THE BT THOMAS BUCHANAN READ. "There's a glory over the face of Youth? And Age as fair a light displays, When beautiful Lore and spotless Truth Have guided all her ways! ' But Sin is a hideous thing to see ; His eyes are dulled before his prime, And each year Jeaveth the mark of three, For he hurries the hand of Time! Thus spake the awaiting Angel Death, By a way-side beggar-crone, Who wrested with the reluctaut breath On a pillow of broken stone! 'T was a fearful sight to see ttEr gasp, . And clutch the air in her sinewy palms, As if forcing from a miser's grasp The miserable alms! Uut a sight to bring the tear drops down Was the little maiden pale and thin Who stood by her side in a tattered gown Which let the sharp air in! , / . ? , . ? J Hatlesa and shoeless she stood in the rain, And shivered like autumn's leaf, Trembling with very hunger and pain, And weeping with fear, aot grief! "What ails you, mother?" the maiden cried, "What makes you tremble and stare ? Why do you look so angry-eyed As you strike the empty air? "I fear you, mother! Your angry brow! Your wild and piercing eye! Oh, do not, do not hurt me now, There is no one to see me cry! "Oh! mother, why you beat me so ? And why do we walk all dny. And rest at night, if it rain or snow, In cold, wet beds of hay "Oh, why do the village children play And seem so very glad ? And why are they dressed so clean and gay While I am so meanly clad ? "Do not their parents beat them too To make them moan and cry ? i Or are their mothers weaker than vou, And the children stronger than t ? "I've seen the parents kiss and hold Their little ones on the knee! 1, mother, am well nigh ten years old. You never did so with me! "Why am not I as pretty and good As the litti* girl? in th* town ? Are mine the meaner flesh and blood Because I am burnt so brown ? "And why do they go with happy look* Up where the chapel stands, 6oxne with their little shining books And flowers in their hands I 1 "Oh, mother, I with you would take me there! For often as we go by Their voices come through the happy air As if from the open sky ! "Oh, mother, I wi&h I could join the strain, And learn their beautiful words; I am sure they do not sing for pain No more than the little birds! I'You know Low once we followed them out To the forest green and gay; How they danced and san* Vsong about The beautiful flowers of May! "Ob, they seemed like a band of angels, free From hunger, pain, and strife; As a lady once told me 1 should be If I lived an honest life I "Then I wondered if we were to die that night, , If we should be angels fair! But, mother, what makes your cheeks so white, Why, why do you shiver and stare? ?(Oh, mother, mother! you have often said You'd kill me yet in some lonely place If I did not steal?and did not shed J More tear-streams down my face! "And when in the prison cell we lay, Because you took the purse, I remember how I beard you say A very dreadful curse! "How then you threatened to take ray life Because 1 lied not more! And I rt member still the knife You said you had used before. "I fear you moth*r! more and more ! groan and give such fearful starts, Ah^^are me now ! and at every door I'll cry till I break all hearts! "But, mother, see, arise, arise ! A carriage comes up the vale; They cannot, I'm sure, refuse our cries, Now that you look so pale!" Thus spake the maid and the carriage came, And she stood with hunger wild; While suddenly burst from the coach a dam? Crying "my child! my child!" The crone half rose from her dying place, With her mouth and eyes all wide! And she knew the injured mother's face, Then fell on her own and died! PART II. One day in the summer garden fair The mother and daughter stiaj ed; With trembling tongue and timid air Thus spake the little maid. "Oh, must I call you mother, indeed? And are you really so.' And many a useless way-side weed - In a beautiful garden grow ? "Yes, you have told me all the tale, How I was stolen away, And how you grew all thin and pale, Grieving for many a day ! "Day after day my heart repeats The story o'er and o'er! And when you say you love me, it beats As it never did before! "Oh, what are all these flowers that load The bushes with red and white ? There are many growing beside the road, But none so large and bright! "Along the fence the alder grows, To shade the dusty way, And by the brook the briar blows Where the cat-bird sings all day ! "Down by the meadows long and wet, The willow-walks arc made; And now and then a violet Grows in the willow's shade. "The dandelion and mullen bloom By the glossy buttercups' bed; And the thistle looks like a soldier's plume With its beautiful tip of red! "The blackberries grow by the stony wall, You may pick them as you pass ; The strawberries too, but so scattered and small You must huut them iu the grass! "All these along the highway siiine; And as I see from here The turnpike's long and winding line, My heart sends up a tear ! "For they were the only things to cheer The long and weary mile ! The only things for many a year That ever wore a smile! "Oh, mother, in our idle hours We'll wander down the glen, And I'll show you some of the simple flowers That smiled upon me then! "Come, let us walk by the road and search, There where the poplars stand; That I may carry some flowers to chnrch To-morrow in my hand! "Then, where the old woman is doomed to lie In the mound so new and bare, I'll slip aside, as we go by, And quietly lay them there. "So that if she i3 up in heaven, SiDging the angels' pslams, She may know that all has been forgiven By those beautiful bright alms! "The good man told us, the other day, We must forgive our foes! And I forgive her, though she, you say, Was the mother of my woes! "I love to hear the church, organ blow When the people rise from their places! And the children stand in a shining row And sing with happy faces! "Their sweet hymns make my heart rejoice Like a blue-bird in the spring; But when I try to raise my voice I weep; for I cannot sing. "Their strain has a sweet and delicate tone; But mine has none of such ; It seems more like the winds' low moan Of which I have heard so much! "Then, since my voice will not join with theirs, In my heart I try to pray, And I whisper o'er those little prayers You taught me how to say! "Say, mother, why did the preacher place His dripping hsnd on the little child ? And did you mark its rosy face How angel-like it smiled ? "When I was so very, very small, Did you carry me up the aisle, And when I fe!t the waters fall, Say, did I weep or smile? "And then again in the afternoon They brought another there, The while the organ's solemn tune, Hung heavy on the air. "But this one in its coffin lay, While its mother sobbed aloud ; And its little hands were as cold aa clay, And its face was as white as its shroud. "Then they slowly lowered it into the ground, While the pebbles down after it slid; And, mother, I still can hear the sound Of the gravel upon the lid ! "Asleep or awake I hear it fall And 'tis grown to a peaceful noise; It seems like a loving angel's call? And 1 must obey the voice!" Thus spake the child?and the Sabbath calm Brought the low organ's sorrowful sound , And the great bell tolled its solemn psalm As they laid her in the ground! Prentice says, the Louisville Democrat ?peaks of General Taylor as *' made by the Democratic party." We wonder if any body is silly enough to believe that a party which made James K. Polk, ever turned out such a piece of workmanship as General Taylor. Old Rough and Ready i? not the work of the Tory party, but the " noblest work of God." LOCAL, INTELLIGENCE. The Illumination. Although two day? have elapsed since the illumination ot the 8th inst., we cannot.withhold a brief notice of the eveni ?especially as it was the anniversary of the battle of Palo Alto, in which Colonel Taylor gave a foretaste of the glorious victories which have succeeded under him as a Major General. Preparations had been made to "light up" the public Departments, but we are told, officially, that the order was countermanded, "because they contain the valuable records ol' the Gov ernment; and most of them are not. fireproof, j and it was not considered proper to make any discrimination between them." As the greater! portion of our readers have doubtless already read accounts of the illumination, aud saw the brilliant spectacles exhibited on the avenue,! and many of the by-streets, it would be an act of supererogation to specify any particular lo-1 cation except the City Hall, the part of which occupied by the corporation was dazzling, con trary to public expectation! It looked cheer ful for once, in contrast to its dingy appear ance. The newspaper offices, without distinc tion of party, were not deficient in display.? The streets were crowded with ladies and gen tlemen, and, of course, children from a year aud upwards. But what afforded us the greater gratifica tion, was the almost unanimous spirit that per vaded our friends at the Navy Yard. We did not see two houses on Garrison street, that I were in daikness. The large brick, as well as the humble frame, bore testimony that they contained inhabitants who, while they publicly expressed the estimation in which they held Lhe victories, accompanied it by a tasteful ar rangement of transparencies and luminaries, j Not a window from the Colonel's house lo the last room in the Marine Barracks was in dark ness : lanterns were hung on trees, beacon lights surmounted the tallest poles, rockets were let off, and the boys, in keeping with the reigning enthusiasm, gratified themselves by throwing balls of fire. The houses of the citizens, we were told, were thiown open to the visiters. But this waj only in keeping with their general hospitality. The command ant of the Navy Yard, illuminated hio quarters; aud officers of the army and navy in the neigh borhood, responded.. The streets were crowd ed with pedestrians, carriages, aud horsemen. People came from Alexandria and adjoining I counties in Maryland, from the central portion of the city, and from Georgetown, to witness I the exhibition. And all expressed their delight with the manner in which the illumination wasconducted. The arch, representing "Cock legs" and displaying two splendid transparen cies, was in good taste: the artist who super intended this part of the exhibition, elicited the I praise of all. The fire works, the closing scene, surpassed any former demonstration. Those who did not witness them cannot con ceive of their extraordinary beauty and novel ty. Distinguished gentlemen were on the platform, but those who were not so favored could see equally as well. We did not sit down to give a description of all that delighted us?, our limits as well as the two days which have elapsed since the event, forbade us. But we must say the Navy Yard bore off the palm, and no people on earth could have done better ; perhaps not so well. There were many houses scattered here and there, in the neighborhood, and in elevated po sitions, that added beauty to the scene. Can non were fired, during the day, and bonfires I lit up at night, which, with the rockets dis-! 1 charged in several portions of the city, have | continued to afford us a theme of which we have not yet become weary. It commenced raining at ten o'clock on Sa turday night, and continued, with a few inter missions, until this morning. The weather' has been so long dry, that the farmers especi ally will most gratefully return thanks for the ! providential visitation. From the appearance of the clouds this afternoon they hove not ex hausted their moistening treasure. At eleven o'clock on Saturday night, the new frame house near Seaton's Garden, own-1 ed by Mr. B. T. Morsell, was fired by an in cendiary, and burnt to the ground. An inquest was held this morning over the the body of Richard Harry, in the First Ward. The verdict of 'the jury was that he cnine to his death by wounds occasioned by a gun in the hands of George Usher, on the 9th instant. Usher wa3 staying at a houte with Elizabeth Mattingly, in the vicinity of K aud 21st street I near the avenuej and having endeavared to ef fect an entrance, was shot by him. The load [ entered the poor fellow's heart, and killed him instantly. Usher was committed to jail, to! await his trial at the next term of the Crimi nal Court.
