When streams of unkindness. ift hitter as gall, Bubble up from the heat to the tongue, And meekness is writhing in torment and thrall, By the haads of ingratitude wrung: In the heat of injustice, upswept and unfair, While the anguish is festering yet, None, none but an angel of God can declare I now can forgive anal forget. But if the bad spirit is chased from the heart, And the lips are in penitence steeped, With the wrong so repented, the wrath will depart, Though scorn on injustice were heaped; For the best compensation is paid for all ill, When the cheek with contrition is wet, And every one feels it is possible still At once to forgive and forget. To forget It is hard for a man with a mind, However his heart may forgive, To blot out all perils and dangers behind, And but for the future to live. Then how shall it he? for, at every turn, Recollection the spirit will fret, And the ashes of injury smoulder and burn, Though we strive to forgive and forget. (, hearken ! a&y tongue shall the riddle unseal, And mind shall he partner with heart, While thee to thyself I 1i, conscience reveal, And sh w thee how evil thouf art: Reiiiscminhr thy Fellies, thy siuý, and thy (rnluies. How vst i, that intinite .eht ! 'let mercy bath se.veu by slenty titoc. Been aWitt to thigsne andl biget. Brood not on insults or injuries old, For thou art injurious too; Count not the sum till the total is told, For thou art unkind and untrue; And it all thy harms are forgotten. tar given, riow mercy with justice is met; 11, who would not gladly take lessons from heaven, And learn to lirgive and forget Yes, yes. let a man, when his enemy weeps, lie quick to receive him a friend; For thus on his head in kindness he heaps Hot coals, to retina as l tueend: Amn hearts that aur I 'ritian mole easily yearn, A. a enu'Se on her ieenoen.lt let, tuisr li, that, our, hitter, te Is-nitenme turn, And whis er, torgoie anl forget. The Art of Kinning. People will kie, Yet one in a hundred knows how to extract bliuss fromlovely lips, no more than they know how to make diamonds from charcoal. And yet it is easy-at least forms! This little item is not alone for young beginners, but for the many who go at it like hunting coons Or selling corn. First know whom you are to kiss. Don't make a mistake, although mistakes may be good. Don't jump up like a trout fora fly, and smack a woman on the neck, or on the ear,aor on the (or nor of the forehead, on the end of the nosei, or slop over on her water tall or bonnet-riblcon, in haste to get through. The gentlemen should be a little the tallest. He shoul4 have a clean face, a kind Py~e and a mouth full of expretetion instead of tobacco. Don't kiss everything, includilig nasty little dogs, maile or female, Don't sit down to it. Mtanid up. Need not he anxious to get in a crowd. Two persons are plenkty to corner and catch a kiss. More persons spoil the Ryport. Sland firm. It won't hurt any nfter you are used to it. Take the left hand of the ladyC in your right hand. Let your hat go to-any place oat of tihe way!I Throw the left hand gently over the uhonlder of the lady, and let the hand fall down upo the right uidt, teowards the belt. Don't be in a hurry. Draw her gently to your living heart. Her head will fall lightly upon you~r shoulder, and a handsome shoulder Mshap it muakes ! Don't be in a hurry; send a little life down your left arm, and let it know its business. kler~left hand isin your *ight. Let there be eg ee 0at that-not like the grip of a vie., but a gentle elarp, full of eleetricity thfought and reepeet. Don't be in a hurry, her heai'I lies earelesaly oni your shoulder ! You are nearly heart to heart. Look down into her half closed eyes. Geutley yet manfully press her to your bogom. Stand firm and Providence will gire~ you strength for the ordeal ! Be brave but do not be in a hurry. Her lips almost open I Lean gently forward with your head, not the body. Take good aim. The lips meet-the eyes close--the heart opens-the soul rides the storm trouble and sorrow of life [don't be in a hurry !)-heaven opens before, --the world shoots from under your feet as a meteor flashes across the evening sky (don't be afraid!)-the nerves dance before the just-created altar of love as zephyrs dance with the dew-trimmed flowers-the heart forgets its bitterness-and the art ofjkissing is learned !-Er.

RATIFICATION MEETING IN NATCHI TOCHES. I IALI. OF CseNmAL REPrwvsuto uLru, Natchtitoches, La., August 19, 1871. 'Ph. lkding and influential members of the 1tRpulblican party from the .diferent wards Idet on the evening of the sine teouth, it the hall of the Central club, for the purpose of ascertaining a true history of the Fite convention held in the city of New Orleans, August 9, 1871. The tueeting being called to order by .1 sesph Austin, the premudent, the proceed ings ot the Turner Hall convention and that at the Customhouse were read by dni t;. Lewis, secretary, to the large con n not a of Republicans jresent. Hau. . Raford Blunt sad H. Baby, dels gate; to the late convention held in the city of New Orleans, August 9, 1871, ad iren el the meeting at legth relative to the action of the two conventions, pre s, ntin' a true history of the atrocities canunitted by the Lowell-Packard boltern and disorganizers. At the close of the .qisochcs. the following resolutions were irad and presented to the club: Rteaslledi, That we, the Republican par ty of the parish of Natchitoches, do suetain and recognize the aetion of the only legal delegatus representing the Republican party of the parish of Natchitoches, to wit: Hons. Raford Blunt, Henry Baby and M. P. Ulackatone, and we, the Republi can party, do tender our sineere thanks to these gentlemen, the delegates above named, for the efficient and valuable ser vices rendered the Republican party of this plurish in the only true convention held in New Orleans on the ninth instant, and which met at Tarner Hall. Resolved, That we, the Republican party of the parish of Nlatchitochse, do indorse in every particular the action and proceed ings ii the Turner Hail convention. Resolved, That we recognize in the'ac tion of the bolters and disoyanizera that met at the Customhouse, principles that lead, if carried ont, to a war of races, tumult, riot and confusion is our now peaceful and prosperona State. Resolved, That we indorse the resolu tions presented to and indorsed by the Turner Hall convention, and offered by Hon. H. C. Dibble. Resolved, That we heartily indorse the administration of his Excellency H. Y'. Warnmith, Governor of the State of Louis iana, and the Republican party of this State are indebted to him for their perfect organization, and also his very valuable services to the whole people, for bringing out of tumult and confusion our State, which now enjoys through his wisdom and guidance a reputation second to none in the Union. The whole people are in debted to him for arresting the schemes of public plunderers, for the protection of the rights of the treasury of the State, and the prevention of fraud sad ceerrption by We recoquaze in him a true, comolateat Governor; one is whom the atiaesms of this State have the utmost couahlanee Ia end respect for. He has adminitesed the taws regardles at persomal Sear or afction, and to lie wise dad aminletive ahility and prudeace our Stats is now bashing i the pecand maton or onesentsalt Rmusveda That the pjuseseeigs of this meeting, sad the abpve mseolmtions, be published in the New1Orlesas Repe~ter. and Iovrmazu After eine hdeal~ we- med, It wau moved saaontae thlhiey beeaki whish was doms, andi aqpemteiU6 the Turner Rail cocinntian war south awl (lagmal Omat Jose Q. Iawas, Beutary. TEa ANsUnrrio! CanomeCLE objects in this wise to the representation that the Customhouse manipulators cooked up for the parish of As sumption: We see b7 the "Official" report of the proceedings of the Customhouse Convention, published in the Cit i zens' OQwmJ, of the 18th instant, that the Parish of Assumption was represented by A. J. Sypher, Henry Grimes, and J. A. Walsh. Mr. Sypher, is a resident of the Parish of St. Mary's, Mr. Grimes, of La fourche, and J. A Walsh of Orleans. None of these gentlemen are even known to the citizens of the Parish of Assumption, and we are at a loss to know how utter strangers can represent us in any Convention. If the Customhouse Convention was composed of ,such delegates, then surely the Republican Party was not represented in that body. LAWS OF THE Late of Louisiana.
