TEE BLUE AND TEE GEAY.
By the flow of the inland liver,
Whence the fleets of iron have fled,
Where the blades of the new gras, quiver.
Asleep are the ranks of the dead.
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day,
Under the one the Blue,
Under the other the Gray.
There in the robing of glory,
There In the gloom of defeat,
All with the battle-blood gory,
In the dusk of eternity meet.
Under the sod and the dew.
Waiting the Judgment day,
Under the laurel the Blue,
Under the willow the Gray.
From the silence of sorrowful hours
The desolate mourners go,
Lovingly laden with flowers,
Alike for the friend and the foe.
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day,
Under the roses the Blue,
Under the lilies lhe Gray.
■n i.dtli nn onnol cnlonrlnfl
The morning sun-rays fall.
With a touch impartially tender.
On the blossoms blooming for all.
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day,
Broidered with gold the Blue,
Mellowed with gold the gray.
So when the summer calleth.
On forest and field of grain,
With an equal murmur falleth
The cooling drop of the rain.
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment Day,
Wet with the rain the Blue,
Wet with the rain the Gray.
Sadly but not upbraiding.
The generous deed was done.
In the storm of the years that are fading.
No braver battle was won.
Under the sod and the dew,
Waiting the Judgment day,
Undertlie blossoms the Blue,
Under the garland the Gray.
No more shall the war cry sever,
Or the winding river be red;
They banish our anger forever.
When they laurel the graves of our dead.
Under the sod and the dew.
Waiting the Judgment day,
Love and tears for the Blue,
Tears and love for the Gray.
SERMON EXTRAORDINARY.
An ecclesiastic, going on a mission to a
certain city, encountered on his way some
robbers, but as he was possessed of no
thing likely to excite their cupidity,
the circumstance gave him no particu
lar uneasiness.
The thieves, on approaching the priest,
well knowing the unprofitable character
of their victim, said to him in tones of
compromise:
“Allowing that you have no purse,
at least, father, you will give us a 'dish
from your kitchen,’ that is, preach us a
sermon in our praise.”
The friar, seeing that he had no re
source, accepted the proposition, and ad
dressed his complacent audience in the
following terms:
“Gentlemen, I cannot give you greater
honor than to compare your life with
that of our Saviour, Jesus, whilst he was
in the world. He suffered much, you
also suffer, wandering as fugitives always
The Lord went accompanied by His dis
ciples—you also are accustomed to go in
numbers. He frequented with Scribes
and Pharisees—you have your associates
who are no better than they. He repeat
edly endured rain, wind, cold, heat, and
all manner of distress—-you live expecting
the same misfortunes, and experience a
thousand inconveniences. Jesus Christ
walked barefooted—to go unshod is one
of your peculiarities. He was content
with one tunic—I believe that you have
not more than one coat to put or. He
carried neither gold nor silver—it appears
to me that you do not go heavily laden
with these metals. He fasted for nights
in the wilderness—you frequently do the
same. He was tempted by the devil—
you continue so to be. He was trans
ported to the pinnacle of the temple,
and to the top of a high mountain—the
devil takes you to the handiest hils for
espying passing travelers. He was hun
gered and athirst—you often are con
strained to bear the same deprivation.—
Ho was despised by all- so, also, are you.
Eagerly sought judges an occasion to
arraign Him—equally eager are judges
in your case. He was sold by Judas—
there will be one among you who will
sell the others. He was seized and bound
_some day you will be also. He an
swered before Herod, Ananias, and Cai
phas—you will do the same before yonr
judges. He was scourged with rods—so,
also, will yeu b.e, if you have not been
already. He was crucified and suspended
between thieves—it will not be long before
you also shall hang. He descended into
Hell—so, also, will you. He aroso to
Heaven —but you will not arise, because
you wilt" live eternally with the devil,
to whose company the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit send you. Amen!"
Use what talent you possess. The
woods would be very silent if no birds
sang there but those who sing best:
SUBLIME CHEEK.
The following characteristic anecdote
of Theodore Hook is given in Barham’s
life of that extraordinary man. One of
the streets near Soho Square, either Dean
street or Fifth street, was the scene of
aotion. Hook was lounging up one of '
the streets, in company with Terry, the 1
actor, when they saw through a kitchen '
window, preparations for a handsome din
ner.
“What a feast?” said Terry. “Jolly
dogs! should like to be one of them.”
“I’ll make my bet,” returned Hook,
“that I do; call for me here at 10o’clock,
and you’ll find that I shall be able to give
a tolerable account of the worthy gen- i
tleman's champagne and venisoo. f
So saying he marched up the steps, 1
rave an authoritative rap, and was quickly 1
lost to the sight to his astonished com
panion. As a matter of course he was ‘
immediately ushered in by the servant,
as an unexpected guest, into the drawing
room where a large party had already 1
assembled. The appartment being well 1
nigh full, no notice was at first taken at 1
his intrusion, and half a dozen people
were laughing at his bon mot, before the J
host discovered the mistake. Affecting
not to observe the embarrassment of the
latter, and ingeniously avoiding the op
portunity foran explanation, Hook rattled
en until he had attracted the greater
part of the company in a circle near
t -1 LI. j!_.1_J
mill, a LIU DU LUC UUUOtUCiaurt Him. viuj/evu
before the old gentleman was able to
catch the attention of the agreeable
Btranger. “I beg your pardon,” he said,
at last, contriving to get in a word, “but
your name, sir —I did not quite catch it
—servants are so abominably incorrect,
and I am really a little at a loss-”
“Don’t apologize, I beg,” graciously
replied Theodore. “Smith—my name is
Smith-and as you justly observe, ser
vants are always making some stupid
blunder or another. I remember a re
markable instance, etc,”
“But really, my dear sir,” continued
the host at the termination of the story
illustrative of stupidity in servants, “I
think the mistake of the persons does
not originate in the source you allude
to; “I certainly did not expect the pleas
ure of Mr. Smith’s company to dinner
to-day.”
“No, dare say not; you said four in your
note I know, and it is now, see, a quarter
past five—you are a little fast, by the
way, but the fact is, I have been detained
in the city, and I was about to explain
when-”
“Pray,” exclaimed the other as soon
as he could stay the volubility of his
guest, “whom may I ask, do you think,
you are addressing?”
“Whom? Why Mr. Thompson, of
course—old friend of your father; I have
not the pleasure indeed, of being per
sonally known to you, but having received
your kind invitation on my airival from
Liverpool—Fifth street, four o’clock,
family party—come in boots—you see I
have taken you at your word. I am only
alraid I have kept you waiting.”
“No, no, not at all. But permit me to
observe my dear sir, my name is not
exactly Thompson—it is Jones, and-”
“Jones!” repeated hisself-styled Smith,
with admirably assumed consternation;
“Jones! Why surely I cannot have—yes,
I must—good heavens! I see it all. My
dear sir, what an unfortunate blunder
wrong house—what must you think of
such an instusion? I am really at loss for
words in which to apologize. You will
permit me to retire at present, and to
morrow—”
“Pray don’t think of retiring,” ox
claimed the hospital old gentleman; “your
friend’s table must have been cleared
long ago, if, as you say, four was the
hour named; and 1 am only too happy to
offer you a seat at mine ”
Ho of course, could not think of such
a thing - could not think of tresspassing
on the kindness of a perfect stranger; if
too late for Thompson, there were plenty
of chop houses at hand. The unfortu
nate part of the business was he had
made an appointment with a gentleman
to call for him at 10 o’clock. The good
natured Jones, however, positively re
fused to allow so entertaining a visitor to
withdraw, dinnerless; Mrs. Jones joined
in the solicitation; the Misses Jones
smiled bewitohingly, and at last Mr.
Smith, who Soon recovered from his con
fusion, was prevailed upon to offer his
arm to one of the ladies, and tako his
place at the well-furnished board.
In all probability the family of Jones
never passed such an evening before.—
Hook naturally exerted himself to the
utmost to keep the party in an unceasing
roar of laughter, and make good the
first impression. The mirth grew fast
and furious, when by the way of a coup
de grace he seated himself at the piano
forte, and struck off into one of those
extemporaneous effusions which had filled
more critical judges than the Jones’
with delight and astonishment. Ten
o'clock struek, and on Mr. Terry being
announced his triumphant friend wound
up the performance with the explana
tory stanza:
I am very much pleased with your fare,
Yqur celler’s a* prime as your oook;
My friend’* Mr. Terry the player,
And I’m Mr. Theodor* Heek.
“ETCHINGS.”
Royalty is such a serious matter at
he best of times,that royal personages
ire not expected to jest much, and when
hey do indulge in that innocent recrea
ion, their jests always pass for all they
ire worth. Queen Victoria was lately
iredited with a neat remark, apropos of
he Republican opinions of Sir Charles
Dilke, which of course were not over
tleasant to her, whose only business is
Royalty. She said that she used to take
tim od her knee when he was a child, and
itroke his hair. “But perhaps,” added
ter Majesty, “I stroked it the wrong
vay.” Napoleon the Third never had
he reputation of a wit, but he said one
harp thing after he had made himself
naster of the destinies of France. It
rasat the expense of his princely cousin,
Jlon Plon, who said to him one day,
‘You have nothing of your uncle about
ou.” “Yes,” he replied, - “bis family.”
If all good things that kings and
|ueens are supposed to have said were
lollected, they could be contained in a
mall volume, the larger part of which
vould need much authentication. A
eaf or two would be filled by his grace,
ess Majesty, Charles the Second, whose
iharacter is so happily hit i ff in the im
nortal epigram of Rochester:
‘Here lies our sovereign lord, the King,
Whose words no man relied on;
tVho never said a foolish thing,
•_a__ _• __')
Many leaves of this imaginary Royal
lest Book would doubtless be filled with
;he sayings of the old kings of Ireland
— if one could only be brought to believe
iu their rather apochrypbal existence.
Mr. Froude might tell us what he thinks
tbout it, if he.were in America now; but
it is just as well perhaps, that he is not;
for there is no telling what a storm it
might brew. Almost every true Irish
man, we suppose, is a descendant of tings
old Irish Kings, and to question the
whilom existence of his great ancestors
would be no joking matter. The Etcher
prefers to admit it, therefore, and to im
agine what merry monarchs these suc
cessors, or predecessors, or contempora
ries of Biain Born were, while he jots
down two or three anecdotes of the'r
descendants, which Plancbe, the dramat.
ist has preserved, and which are good
enough to be imported.
An acquaintance of his, he says, who
frequently visited Ireland, and generally
stopped and dined at the same hotel in
Dublin, on his arrival one day perceived
a paper wafercd on the looking glass in
the coffee room, with the fallowing written
notice, “Strangers are particularly re
quested not to give any money to the
waiters, as attendance is charged for in
the bill.” The man who had waited on
him at dinner, seeing him reading the
notice, said, “Oh Misther-; sliure
that doesn’t consarn you, anyway. Your
honor was niver made a stranger of in
this house.”
Planche tells another anecdote about
a nobleman whom be met at dinner, and
who told him that be bad been shooting
at a friend's place in the West of Ireland,
and that the game keeper bad indulged
in the most exaggerated accounts of the
quantity of every description of game
upon his master’s estate. Nothing that
ever ran or flew, his lordship inquired
about, but was asserted by the man could*
be found by hundreds and thousands.—

most positive assurance of the existence
of eveay beast or bird in abundance, be
asked, “Are there any parodoxes,?” This
was rathsr a poser; but, after a moment’s
hesitation, the keeper answered undaunt
edly, “Bedad, then, your lordship may
find two or three of them sometimes on
the sand, when the tide's out.”
A third story concerns a fellow travel
er, whom Planche met in Germany, and
who was, himself, an Irishman. He was
on the box of an Irish mailcoach, on a
very cold day, and, observing the driver
enveloping his neck in the voluminous
folds of an ample comforter, he remarked,
“You seem to be taking very good care
of yourself, my friend.”
“Och, to be sure I am sir,” answered
the driver, “what’s all the world to a man
when his wife’s a widdy!”—Scribner’z.
Punch has a hit at the domestic ser
vice question in the following squib :
Lady’s maid—“Please, ma’am I wish
to resign.”
Lady—“Why you came here only yes
terday.”
Lady’s maid—“I’ve been looking over
yonrdrawers, ma’am andfindvour things
are not up to the mark, and wouldn’t
do me credit.”
An ambitious young lady was talking
very loudly about her favorite authors,
when a literary chap asked her if she
liked lamb. With a look of ineffable
disgust, she answered that she cared very
little about what she ate, compared with
knowledge.
A wise man once said, “Never explain.”
The best thing that one can do at any
given crisis is to hold one's tongue; that
will be the advice of ninety out of every
hundred men of ability and experience
