for the Portland Daily Press. “On a Furlough.” In a dark, dreary cell, on the damp stones reclining, A poor wounded soldier lay breathing his last; And he thought of the fields where God's sunshine was shining, Of the dear ones at home, and the days that had passed; And he peered through the darknesg as though they were near him, As though all the loved ones were gathered him round; And he called them by name, and he thought they did hear him; But dark was the cell, and the walls gave no sound. “They are coming,'’ he cried, and his eye gained its brightness. “They are coming,” he cried, “and I knew they’d be here.” But his quick chauging look, and his cheek’s growing whiteness, But told of death's coming,—the monarch was near; But his soul, e'er it fled to the regions of glory, Turned fondly to home, and e’en death stayed his dart. “They are present,*’ he cried, “and what is there I “Could ask for, my dear ones,—no more shall we part; “I have thought of you often, and yearned for this meeting, “When the demon of war howled his dirge in the blast, “And, next to my country, I’ve cherished this greet ing,— “’Tis granted; and loved ones are near me at last. “And Oh, it is sweet, from earth’s troubles and an guish, “To know I'm once more where I e’er hoped to be; “Where doubt cannot enter, and love cannot lan guish, “I’m at home on a furlough,—a short time I’m free.” Death waited no longer; his swift blow was given; A gasp,—and that soldier the blest streets did roam; All troubles were over,—earth’s fetters were riven,— God granted bis furlough,—he now was at home. Portland, July 29th. A. N. II. MISCELLANY. A Yankee Decision. Sometime between the years 1812 and 1813, when considerable animosity existed between the people of Canada and the States, and some of the British subjects, who were “dresssd with a little brief authority,” looked u|ion the Yankees as but little better than the brute— the following is said to have taken place at the Custom House at St. John: A Yankee of considerable dimensions en tered the office and informed the officer that he wished to enter his load and receive his passport. The officer cast a sarcastic look at him, and said it was customary for people when they entered his office to receive a pass port to take off their hats, and requested him to do so instantly. “No, I thank you,” said the Yankee, “I paid four dollars for that hat to keep >uy head and ears warm.” “You impertinent puppy.” saiii the officer, working himself into a considerable of a pas sion. “how dare you insult me! off with your hat immediately f” “No, sir, can't do it, keeps my head proper warm.” After several orders of a similar kind, ac companied with curses and threats, which met with no better success, he stepped up to him and gave his hat a blow that sent it to the ad jacent corner of the room. The Yankee paid no attention to this, but waited patiently un til he had received a passport, folded and de posited it safely within his wallet, and was rea dy to pursue his journey, when turning to the officer, he requested him to pick up his hat and put it on his head. The officer, who was wroth, ordered him to to leave the office, or he might get into trouble —for he did not make words with a man of his discription. “I say, mister,” says the Yankee, you must pick up my hat, and that just in one minute's time, or feel the weight of these mnuls,” shak ing his list rather nearer the officer’s face than was agreeable. The officer raved and swore all to no effect, and finally threatened to cane him if he did not depart. “Mister,” said the Yankee, “time flies con siderable kinder fast,” at the same time begin ning to unbutton his coat, and you had better be going after that hat. After several more threats, which had the desired effect upon his opponent, the moment being nearly expired, he streaked off and pick ed up the hat and offered it to its owner, but he was not satisfied with that, aud ordered him to put it on his head precisely as he hud found it. The officer hesitated, but seeing the determination of the Yankee, he set it upon his head and was about to depart, when he was collared and ordered to place it as he found it. “Here.’’says the Yankee, “tuck this ear un der, now the other, pull it down in front,” ect, all of which orders the officer reluctantly ful filled. There sir, that is about right.” says the Yankee, “and now, friend, before 1 leave you 1 will give you a word of good advice: never meddle with a Yankee's hat unless you are prepared to take a peep into futurity. Good day, sir.” an oi>d rtsH.—The pilot, fish is seldom above a foot or eighteen inches long, but is extremely beautiful, being streaked transverse ly, with blue and yellowish brown that have a very pleasing effect on the water, but lose much of their lively gloss when taken out of iL These fish are often seen in small shoals, swimming immediately ahead of a shark, or near him. When a bail is thrown out for the shark, they cluster about it without attempt ing to nibble it; but by their motions to ami fro, seem to guide the shark towards it,—from whence they obtain the name of pilot-fish.— When in company with the shark, they seldom take the small hook; but when they have lost this companion, or follow a ship either singly or in shoals, they sometimes bite and are caught. They are esteemed for their size, the most delicious eating the ocean affords, and have nothing of that dryness attributed to many other sorts of Ash. In one of the old Dutch settlements of the Mohawk Valley, a very honest old farmer of the Little Four Corners was elected Justice of the Peace. It was not supposed that Squire I V-had amassed much legal learning, but I he was quite noted for his unsophisticated j honesty and frankness—indeed, a blunt Dutch man ; whose heart never erred, but whose head had very little connection with it in the ad ministration of his official functions. It hap pened that his first case was quite hotly con tested by lawyers on both sides. They sum med it up elaborately, and after they got through quoting from “Cowen’s Treatise,” the bar-room of the hotel (his office) being crowd with eager spectators to hear the first decis ion of the new Justice, the old man deliber ately folded up his docket, put it under his arm, lit his pipe and said: "Veil, shentlemen, I shall take four days to decide, but shall effen tually find shugement for de plaintiff." Hearsay Evidence.—Two literary ladies were lately w itnesses in a trial. One of them, upon hearing the usual questions asked, “What j it your name?” and “how old are you?” turn ed to her companion and said: “I ’do not like to tell my age, not that I have any objection i to its being known, but I don't want it pub lished in all the newspapers.” “Well,” said the witty Mrs. S., “1 will tell you how you can avoid it. You have heard the objection to ail hearsay evidence; toll them you don’t remem ber when you were born, and all you know of it is by hearsay.” The ruse took; and the question was not pressed. $3T” “Mr. Smith, I wish to speak to you privately. Permit me to take you apart a lew moments.” Smith (who wasn't the least fright ened)—“Certainly, sir, if you’ll promise to put me together again.” A young and accomplished lady residing in Hopedale, in this State, eloped last week with a blackleg and was traced as far as New York, when all pursuit became hopeless. Her pa rents are in deep distress at her loss.I Boston Post. A very worthy and pious old dame, who could not read, had several books loaned to her, which she got a little girl to read for her. The deacon of her “Pilgrim’s Progress,” ami a nephew a copy of “Robinson Crusoe.” Hav ing them read alternately, the dame got the text a little mixed up: and whem the deacon called upon her and asked her how she liked “Pilgrim’s Progress,” lie was somewhat sur prised when she replied, “It’s a marvellous book, truly; why, what big troubles him and his man Friday under goed!” THE MARKETS.

PROSPECT UIS OF THK PORTLAND DAILY PRESS: EDITED BY JOHN T. GILMAN, recently of the Bath Timer, and JOSEPH B. HALL, of the Aroostook Herald. The Portland Daily Press is intended to be an enterprising, vigorous and live Daily Morning Paper, containing the latest and fullest news by mail and telegraph. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is a large, well-filled, carefully edited, and neatly printed weekly paper, intended specially for general circulation throughout the State. Both of the above nAnted papers will labor to inculcate, in no dictatorial spirit, sound political prin ciples and to promote the material interests of the State, and of the City of Portland as its interests twine with, and are inseparable from, those of the State. Politically, the Press will give an earnest, cordial, and generous support to the administration of Abra ham Lincoln, who in little more than one year, has indellibly impressed himself upon the nation’s heart as an incorruptible patriot, an inflexible Chief Mag istrate. and an honest man; the ability of whose ad ministration is most signally exhibited, not [only in the matchless operations of our army and navy, but in the unparalleled fact that, in the midst of this gigantic rebellion, our Government securities are selling at a premium. It will zealously labor to ex hibit and defend sound Republican principles, and, inasmuch as political organizations have become a necessity iu carrying into effect great principles of political economy, and inasmuch as ,the Republican party which, in the brief chapter of its history already written, has successfully refuted the allegation of its enemies that its designs and tendencies were sec tional, and triumphantly vindicated its claim to a just and liberal Nationality, has remained steadfast in its devotion to the Union while other organizations have so generally become Infected with a disloyal spirit, and inasmuch as it is the only party which at present seems competent to conserve the great prin ciples underlying all free Governments, the Ureas will cordially sustain the organization of that party, not with a design to foster a mere partizau spirit, but in the full coniciousncss that it embodies the true principles upon which our government rests, and af fords the only available means of accomplishing such results as a lofty patriotism imperatively demands. It will neither seek nor endorse any compromises with men in rebellion against the laws of the land, but will inculcate loyalty to the great central idea of all true democracy—that the majority must govern. Upon the exciting question of Domestic Slavery, it may be proper to say, that while the Urkaa will sanc tion no interference with the constitutional or legal rights of loyal men, it will neither apologise for an evil which constitutes the foulest blot upon our national character, nor attempt to resist the tide of events that seems destined to sweep from existence nn institution ulnVli >■ tlm irmatmt <,1.- i.. . government. 'Hie emancipation of slavery in tlie federal Capital, the co-operation of the Federal with the loyal State governments, to secure gradual eman cipation, as proposed by President Lincoln, aud all other constitutional measures looking to a peaceful removal of our greatest “moral, political and social evil," will liud in the Press a generous and hearty support. While thus distinctly announcing the general course proposed for the Prehh, and intending that, alike in war and in peace—in our country's peril aud in its triumph, it shall speak with no uncertain voice, we do not lose sight of the fact that true men have hon estly differed, and that, coining by different routes they now find themselves travelling parallel roads; and, instead of seeking to widen the differences be tween those who are required by a common patriot ism to act in concert, the Prehh will labor hopefully to encourage unity of purpoeo and harmony of act ion among all loyal men. Aside from its political department, the Prehh will be earnestly devoted to the advancement of the best interests of tlie city and .State. Its Local Depart ment will in no case be neglected. Particular atten tion will bo given to the Commercial and Maritime interests. It will bo the aim of its conductors to make it an indispensable institution of the State, and a ge nial aud welcome visitor in every work-shop, count ing-house, and family circle. The Editors, not un known to the people of Maine, will give their undivi ded energies to tlie work before them, aud labor to make such a paper as the city of Portland, the .State of Maine, and the exigencies of the times demand— one that shall be true to the popular iustiucts. The Portland Daily Prf.hh is printed with en tirely new type, on a sheet as large as that of any daily in 3faine. and issued every rooming, (Sun days excepted,) at $o per anuum. Subscriptions for less than six months. 50 cents per mouth. The .Maine State Prehh, large, neatly printed, aud well tilled with the uews of the week, and orig inal aud selected Political, Agricultural.
