Where the rocks are gray and the shore is steep, And the wdters below look dark and deeri;; "WTiere the rugged pine, in its lonely pride, Leans gloomily over the murky tide ; Where the feeds and rushes are long and rank, And the weeds grow thick on the winding bank ; Where the shadow is heavy the whole day through, There lies at its moorings the old cahde. The nseless paddles are idly dropped, Like a sea-bird's wings that the storm has lopped, And crossed on the railing, one o'er one, Like the folded hand9 when the work is done ; While busily back and forth between The spider stretches his silvery screen, And the solemn owl, with his dull "too hoo," Settles down on the side of the old canoe. The stern half sunk in the slimy wave, Rots slowly away iu its living grave, And the green moss creeps o'er its dull do cay, Hiding its mouldering dust away, Like the hand that plants o'er the tomb a flower, Or the ivy that mantles the falling tower ; While many a blossom of loveliest hue Springs over the stern of the old canoe. The currentless waters are dead and still But the light wind plays with the boat at will, And lazily in and out again It floats the length of the rusty chain, Like the weary march of the hands of time, That meet aud part at the noontide chime, And the shore is kissed at each turning anew, By the dripping bow of the old canoe. Oh, many a time, with a careless hand, I have pushed it away from the pebbly strand, And paddled it down where the stream runs quick, Whore the whirls are wild and the eddies are thick, And lat'.ghed as I leaned o'er the rocking side. And looked below in the broken tide, To Bee that the faces- aud boats were two, That were mirrored back frum the old canoe. But now as T lean o'er the crumbling side. And look below in the sluggish tide, The face that I see there is graver grown, And the laugh that I hoar has a soberer tone, Aud the hands that lent to the light skill" wings, Have grown familiar with sterner things; But I love to think of the hours that sped As I rocked where the whirls their white spray shed, Ere t,he blossom waved, or the green grass grew, O'er the mouldering stern of the old canoe. RATTLESNAKES SON-IN-LAW? EY FAtL PLUME. In tlio summer of 1850 five sportsmen started from Sau Antonio ou a hunting ex pedition. The party consisted of Robert Glcudy. Thomas Smith, John Simpson, Euoch Stiles and Albert Mapes. I knew only the latter, and had tho following ac count from his own lips. In those days the savages who roamed the plains had matters prettjr muoL. tl.oir own wty . Tk. small number of troops that were posted on the frontier were wholly inadequate to furnish protect iou to those who went any distance beyond the settled parts of the country. Our party arrived safely cn their ground, and pitching their tent, began to hunt with excellent success. For a weejj they camped upon the samo spot, until at length they began to feel that fancied security which springs from a disregard of danger. It was late ouo night, when Mapes was playing the yjo)ii and the others were en gaged in di'aw poker, that a hound which accompanied the party started from the bufrjilo robe on which lie was lying, and springing to tho front of the tent, began to utter savage growls. Mapes dropped his riddle and the others their cards, and catching up their rifles, all went out int) the night. The moon struggling faintly through the rifted clouds showed that the horses were safely picket ed. This being ascertained, several of the party made an examination of the ground lying about the camp, and discovering nothing unusual, they wont back to the tent. I don't like the way old Hector behaved just now," remarked Simpson, placing tho butt of his rifle upon the toe of his heavy boot and looking anxiously into the face of his companions, "BaUJ" cried Gleudy, picking up tho cards ; "come, put up your antes." "No, no," they replied, "no more cards to-night, Bob ; rather let u determine who is to stand guard." "Stand guard?" ejaculated Glendy. "Ilallq ! what's tho matter? Old Hector has scared the whole party. Why, we haven't stood guard but three nights since we've been out, and we still have the hair on our heads. But if you think it neces sary," he continued, "post me for any hour you please." "I certainly consider it necessary," re plied Mapes. "As long as I have owned that hound. I never knew him to sUow any signs of uneasiness unless there was cause for it. . Before now he has got me out of a tight place, and I would sooner trust to his instinct than to the eyes and ears of most men:" The watches for the night were there upon arranged, Glendy taking post for the first hour, while Mapes was to go on guard at three in the morning. The moon went down early in the night, but there was bright starlight, and when Mapes shouldered his rifle to watch, faint streaks of coming day were already visible in the eastern horizon. His inseparable companion Hector, was at his side. First he examined the wagon at which a couple of mules were munching corn, then bo vis ited the horses and stooped down aud feit the iron picket pins." Satisfied that everything we correct, he walked to the smoldering fire in front of the tent and set down upon the end of a log, Hector crouching at his feet. He had scarcely taken his seat when a low whistle, like the note of a curlew, struck his ear. Mapes was an old Texan hunter. No man knew better the stratagems of the Indian than he. There was no bird would utter such a cry to be found in that locality. He started to his feet, and the hound at tho same moment sprang in front of him with a savage growl. An instant more and Mapes was in the tent waking his sleeping companions. "Quick, quick ; we haven't a moment to lose," he cried. Rifle in hand, the inmates of the tent sprang from their repose just in time to hear their terrified horses (cut loose by the creeping Indians) madly dash across the prairie. The whole party made a rush for the wagon, intending to fight under that cover. For the next half hour all was qui et ; but as daylight dawned twenty Indi ans, mounted on ponies which had their tails tied up (an unfailing sign that they were 011 the war-path), were observed about a mile to the eastward. "In for it now," said JIapes, looking at Bob Glendy. "I reckon you havo some faith in the hound after all." "There's only twenty of them," answer ed Glendy. ''I know it," replied Mapes in his quiet way. "'Tis not tho first time I've had this thing to do. I feel inad about the loss of our horses, and I want the fight to begin at once. I'll step out as a skirmihher and draw them." "No occasion," cried Enoch Slilcs, "for here they come like very devils." "Now, boys," said Mapes, "every man pick out his game." The Indians came at a full dash until within range, when they opened fire with lilies, while the whizz of at rows proclaimed they were not all provided with firearms. The Texans returned the fire, but unfor tunately without success, aud the Indians deployed according to their customary mode. "Alia !"' ejaculated Mapes, picking up an aixow from under the wagon and in tently examining it. "My old enemies, the Apaches. Well, I'll try and wipe out old scores to-day. llec, you know some thing about these devils, don't you?" he continued, addressing the hound. "You haven't forgot the arrow they put in your paw, have you ?" A desultory firing now commenced on both sides, which was kept up for the space r 4.1.;. j- n.u..t. a charge. I lobe it Glendy and Thomas Smith fall dead, and the Indians almost got posses sion of the wagon. Stimulated by their success, they repeated the charge, and were stubbornly met by the fire of the three de termined men. Poor Hector was the only victim, A half dozen arrows went thro' his trusty heart and with a few convulsive quivers, he stiffened out his form in death. It was an awful place to utter profanity, but Albert Mapes swore a terrible oath, as he laid his hand caressingly on the body of his old companion. LTp to this moment no Indian had been killed outright, though it was evident that one or more were wounded, for the savages gathered in a group, many of them dis mounting. "We'll pass in our checks if we remain here," said Mapes, sternly grounding the butt of his rifle and gazing at the savages. "I think there's mighty little Ioubt that we'll follow poor Bob and Tom. But we have got to die some time, and a man can't do so better than defpnding his life ; but it's hard to be wiped out of existence by a set of thieving Apaches. That's the only thing that has a sting in it for me. Now, if we could only reach Ilancjiero Creek, we might fall in with the troops that are scout ing in that vicinity. Suppose we take the mules and try it, It's a poor show for suc cess, boys, as two of us will have to back one mule ; and it's not likely we'll have a pleasant journey." Tho proposition of Mapes was at once adopted, and for some unexplained reason the savages followed close in the rear of the party, but never fired a shot until they came within sight of the creek. They now were within nine miles of Fort Lincoln. Their spirits, however, fell when with eager eyes they peered over the country and saw nothing but dense thickets and numerous Indian trails. They were now in the most dangerous part of the oountry a region usually infested with savages, but also fre ;jly illfei xlly visi ouexlly visited by scouting parties of the roops. Iu the hojm of mooting one of j these detachments they had set out, and ( the disappointment they now felt was some thing hardly to be described. Forcing their way with difficulty through the chaparral, they reached a hill of rough j sandstone. Springing from' their mules, which they hastily secured in their real, they took refuge behind the rocks just as their foes came upon them and Opened fire. It wanted but little more than an hour of night, and the savages seemed determined to settle matters ere darkness came. Their first new grief now was the death of both mules, which cut off all hope of escape ex cept by foot. With a yelL on came the foe, but suddenly halted short of the spot where the three men stood prepared to fight with determined obstinacy and courage. As if ashamed of being kept at bay by such an insignificant force, the Apaches rode almost within arm's length of the men and poured into them a volley, after which they quickly retreated. Albert Mapes had faced death often in his Texan campaigns, and no man had ever seen his check blanch or his hand grow less steady in the hour of danger ; but when he saw Simpson and Stiles fall forward on their faces, with their mouths full of blood, he involuntarily re coiled, while the lines about his weather beaten face perceptibly grew harder. Quickly casting a searching look about him, he espied an opening in the sandstone ridge, and the next moment he sprang into it. To his great joy, he found it tolerably spacious, while the entrance was large enough to admit but one man at a time. Here he resolved to sell bis life as dearly as possible. In his belt he Carried a revolver, which he had reserved for the last. It was fortunate he did so, for iu his flight into the cave he lost the rammer of his rifle. His foes, who saw him enter his retreat, now pressed toward the mouth of the cave. One of the more daring attempted to enter and was shot dead in his tracks. The lesson was sufficient for the savages, who at once successfully put into practice an ingenious ruse. Stripping their dead comrade of his apparel, they hastily made a manakin and carefully pushed it toward the mouth of the cave. . Mapes, deceived, fired, and the dummy fell and was with drawn. This they repeated until Mapes had exhausted all his ammunition. From his count ho supposed he had slain or wounded every Apache present. When his foes were satisfied that his ammunition was expended they rushed into the cave and secured him. To drag him forth amid exultations and bind him on a pony was the work of a few moments only. Then they set out on their march with their prisoner. By noon on the following day they halted at their camp of a hundred lodges. Klin-cha-ah, or Rattlesnake, was tho presiding chief. From his contact with tho Mexicans he had learned Spanish, and as Mapes spoke the language well, he was cuablcd to talk with tjie chief quite freely. "You have killed a good many warriors," said Rattlesnake, laughing, as he referred to the trick at the cave. "I would kill more," replied tho prison er, "if I had the opportunity." "You have a big heart to talk so bravely. Don't you know what I intend doing with you ?" "You will kill me, I suppose," replied Mapes. "It's Just what I would have done It. .j nf j my power." Rattlesnake gazed at his prisoner for a few moments, and then put him under guard, securely bound. The following day there was merry making in the Apache camp. The Indians were practicing gymnastics, and Mapes was led out and bound to a tree, where he witnessed their athletic exercises. A smile of derision curled his lip as he regarded the sports. Rattlesnake approached him. "Can j'ou do these things?" he asked. Mapes told him that he could do better. "Unbind him," commanded the chief, 'Now let me see you make good your boast." It would have been difficult to find a bet ter gymnast than Albert Mapes. He out leaped the best Apaches in the camp ; he ran swifter and excelled them in every thing they attempted. Rattlesnake regard ed him with a look of satisfaction. "My brother has spoken truly," he re marked, for the first tirao using that term. "How would he like to become a chief and remain with us? Ho has a big heart." "I would prefer it to dying, of oourse," replied Mapes, with a laugh. "It is well," answered the chief. That day Mapes was presented to Rat tlesnake's daughter, who was to be his squaw. She was not as comely as some of the Indian girls present, neither was she as young ; but Mapes exhibited no aver sion to inakiug her his wife, and Rattle snake, in his liberality, gave his daughter as a dower a fine lodge, a dozen ponies and a few goats. With these Mapes and his squaw commenced lodge-keeping. There was one thing connected with this arrangement that our newly-made chief did not relish. He was bound never to leave the camp without his wife's permis sion, and she took care that he was always under her eyes. For two years Mapes con tinued with the Apaches, never wholly losing hopo of escaping. He was now burned to so deep a ie by exposure that it would have beon difficult at first sight to have recognized him as a white man. Dur ing the period of his sojourn with the Apaches he traversed many thousands of miles about the country but he noveronce showed signs of fatigue or discontent. The camp of the Apaches was often vis ited by traders, and when these men had concluded their sales to the savages they Were usually followed by a few Indians, who waylaid them and returned ivith the plunder to their camp. One would think such treacherous acts as these would have deterred traders from visiting them ; but such seemed not to bo the case, at least ; while Mapes was among them. At the termination of the second year of his involuutary chiefship, a Mexican tra der came into their camp. They were then at Comanche Creek, a distance of seventy three miles from San Antonio. Mapes had often been at the placo in other days, and the sight of it awakened anew in his heart tho desire for liberty. The trader had got through his business and departed, when the proposition was made to follow and kill him and recover what they had paid him. For the first time, Mapes asked permission to be one of the party, and was referred to his wife. It was only upon the most solemn assur ance that ho would return that ho obtain ed her consent. The party, however, was increased to five, it being usual to employ only a couple of Indians in mattcis such as this. The trader had got a day's start when Mapes and his party set out on the trail. They came upon him as he was camped near the Rio Saco. Keeping out of view until evening set iu, they secured their ponies and began to amuse themselves. Mapes had managed to obtain a bottle of whisky from the trador when he was at the camp, and he had carefully preserved it for future use. llo now produced it, but his Apache friends were cautious and did not intend getting drunk while they had him in charge. They, however, drank sparingly of the bottle, which with the exercise of tho jour ney brought on drowsiness which soon cul minated in sleep. Now, if one attempts to walk with ever so light a step in the vicin ity of a sleeping Indian he will awaken di rectly. Mapes, who was lying beside them, understood this. He therefore com menced to move uneasily in his sleep, roll ing over several times. With great caution he repeated his roll ing stratagem until he had got quite a dis tance from the sleepers, when he noiseless ly aroso to his feet and hurried directly to the pouics. Selecting his own, ho quickly drew out his kuifo and hamstrung the others. Then he jumped on his horse and rode for liberty. Yaudenburg was distant but fifteen miles, and Mapes never drew rein until lie halted in the midst of it. The t-oople flecked from all parts of the town to get a sight of him, and hear his strange story. His Apache wlfo must by thin time be weary of watching for his return, and if she wishes to see him will have to visit one of our commercial cities, where, at the present moment, he is engaged in a more Christian-like occupation than taking scalps. In Chckcii TriE Pkize-Package Boy's Dueam. One of the most alarmiug cases of somnambulism with which wo are fa miliar is that of the prizc-packnjre bov wnn operates on the ZSorristown llailroad, in Philadelx'hia. By some extraordinary combination of circumstances this child of sin was induced to go to church a few Sun days ago, and whilst listening to the ser mon he fell asleep in the back pew where he sat. There had been a Sunday school meeting there before church, and all the Bibles and Missionary newspapers were piled up in that particular pew. Sudden denly this remorseless young orphan picked up a bundle of the papers in his sleep ar.d began to walk up the. aisle, throwing one into each pew as he went along. When he got under the lee of the pu'pit he stopped and waited two or three minutes. The minister looked cross-eyed at him and glared at him through his spectacles, but the young brigand was unconscious. Then he glided down tho aisle and amazed the congregation by removing the papers from each pew. When he reached the rear he seized an armful of Bibles and rambled up the aisle again, tossing them at the oc cupants of tho pews. Rest ing again under the pulpit, and wholly indifferent to the circumstance that the clergyman's eyes again were out of their natural straight position, aud were making his spectacles look like a double-barreled locomotive headlight, the infant brigand pranced down the aisle the second time, yelling, "Here's your prize packages, only ten cents ; each one contains a prize from ten cents to ten dollars !" and grabbing for the Bible as he proceeded. Tho minister waived his hand at one of the deaoons ; the deacon and the sexton charged on that boy, and the organist tells us the three scudded down the thoroughfare at the rate of fifteen knots an hour, while the sexton I shook the boy up, and the deacon boxed bis ears, and wished it was not wicked to swear. Then they took him up into the steetle and killed him. We are not cer tain that they killed him, but wc think they did, of course, for that is the only j way iu which he could be keyt quiet. We could have butchered him long ago if w.. could have got him alone in a steeple come- j where. Max Adeler. De Careful What You Say. IjY CHAKLF.S CAKISOLL 8ANGF.K. In speaking of a person's faults Pray don't forget your own ; Remember, those with homes of glass Hboul'd seldom throw a stone ; If we have nothing else to do But talk of those who sin, 'Tis letter we commence at home, And from that point begin. We have no right to jmlja a man, Until he's fairly tried ; Should we not like his company. We know the world is wide ; Bome may have faults and who have not-. The old as well as young j Perhaps we may, for aught we know, Have fifty to their one, I'll tell you pf a hotter plan, And find It works full well ; I try my own defects to cure Before of others tell ; And though I sometimes hope to be No worse than some I know. My own shortcomings bid me let The faults of others go. Then let us all, when we commence To slander friend or foe, Tliiuk of the harm one word may do To those who little kuow ; Remember, curses, sometimes like Our chickens, "roost at home ;" Don't speak of others' faults until We have non of our own. How Andy Jonsson Got His Table Aoais. A recent issue of the Bristol (Tenn.) Newt relates the following : Ex President Johnson has been noted for his kindness to tailors. Some time sinco ho loaned to one of them the old table on which ho used to ply his shears and needle, and from which he iu an unparalleled ca reer rose to the Presidency. During tho cholera alarm of June last this brother left Greenville in a hurry, taking his fam ily with him to Bristol. In the confusion he neglected to leave behind this celebra ted table. Mr. Johnson was prostrated by a violent attack of tho cholera, and could not look after out-door matters, and so the table found its way to Bristol. Of course it was regarded by the family a relic too interesting to bo lost, and ou Wednesday last Mr. Andrew Johnson, jr., a son of the ex-President, arrived at Bris tol in quest of it, and found it safely locked in one of tho A., M. and O. cars; and snug ly billed for a distant Virginia town to which the aforesaid tailor had already re moved. There was no use in a warrant in detinue, for the service could not be made, and, as both table and tailor were in Vir ginia, an attachment could not begotten in the State, aud one from a Tennessee jus tice could not be served. Did the pursuit end here ? Not a bit of it. Learning that many of the Virginia care aro backed across the State line to the Tenncssea switch in order to get them on the proper track, Mr. Johnson procured from a jus tice on the Tcnnesso side a warrant of re plevin, and when this car was being switched for its Virginia journey there was present a Tennessee officer, who very dexterously switched the celebrated table out of it, and turned it over to the son of the ex-President, who now has it again iu Greenville." Witat I Begin to Believe. I begin to luili.vo, o,r-jwlnj-fl, iliat moacy makes the man, and dress the woman, I begin to believe that the purse Is mre potent than the sword and pen together. I begin to believe that those who sin tho most during the week are the most devout on Sundaj'g. I begin to believe that man wns not made to enjoy life, but keep himself mis erable in the pursuit aud possession of riches, I begin to believe the surest remedy for hard times and tight money market is an extravagant expenditure on the part of. individuals to keep the money moving.

A negro minister whose first wife ha ": died, and who had remarried rather soon than some of the sisters thought pro 1 and becoming, excused himself as follows '.My dear brethren and sisters, my grk was greater than I could bear, I turnc. every way for peace and comfort, but uoi e came. I searched the Scripture from Cin isee to Revelations, and found plenty t l promises to the widdcr, but nary one to the widderer.
