' A MIDNIGHT ADVENTURE. !
Midniett twelve o'clock jtreoisolv.
Tbe town clock had jnst proclaimed It to
all who had cars to bear, and tbe wish to
listen. I had been to the theatre..- It
was interesting, and I stayed to the end.
I was some little distance out of town,
and on mv wav homeward bit Btena led
tnt naat ona of ith nitv eemeterica. At
tbe spot I atoppod unintentionally, or
perhaps my thoughts caused me to pause.
It was a beautilul rammer's night, and I
took things generally oasy.
I bad ever been fond of testing my
own courage, merely for my own benefit
my own confidence, my experience.
What a lncky chance I A graveyard at
black midnight 1 Were the,; gates lock
ed 1 No, I entered. - It was hero' that
my pcor Barents were buried ; here lay
tin last mortal remains of those I once so
dearly loved and resnected. I bad. very
often visited and. knelt by their graves
before by the quiet homes of the dead
mourning in melancholy eilonce my
loss and bereavement, but never before
bad approached at nieht. .
Was I timid, fearful 7 Why, no ; there
was nothing to foar. I was no coward,
though I could cot help noticing how
gleomy, how very lonely and sad looking,
everything before mo appealed. I passed
on on through the long path, by the
still drooping willow on poBt the white
row of tombstones and raised mounds, to
my parents graves.
. I walked with firmer step and quieter
nervo than I bad expected, though the
idea 01 my situation caused me to shud
der perocptibty once in a wbilo and here
i beg you to remember, that with the
stoutest 0 hearts, there has been a time
of similar sensation. Not oowardico; I
would not style it that, but rather ner
vousness, deep feeling, sensitiveness.1 .
I sat down on my mother's grave, and
gated about my singular position. A cool
night. Fast fleeting black clcuds bung
over head indicating rain, breaking now
and then over the star studded sky, cast
gloomy shadows along the rows of graves.
The bright moon, now perhaps, damped
of its brilliancy, half bid bebian tbe ra
cing clouds, would sometimes shoot out
of its shrouds, and cast a bright stream of
light on tho weary earth, chasing the re
trontiug shadows before it, and running
up to my very feet. Then again would
it sink in the surrounding clouds, and the
long shadows orccping aver the silent
ground, like specters, added a strange,
weird, espect to tho scene While the
low, inspiring winds,' gently wafting
through tho full leaved trees, would make
a sound like that of dropping raiu. to
be a solitary visitor of such a place, and
at such a time, was not a very desirable
luxury ; and I renrember wnen in my
early childhood", I should 'have shudder
ed at tho very idoa of it. -
Very naturally my thoughts bcoamo
directed to those who had passed before
me, from this life to that of oternity. s
is generally the ease with one deep in
thought, my eyes became riveted on one
spot, some little distance in front of fan',
across the' path, where I saw, by dim
moonlight, a new inado grave another
tenement to the dual, the universal rest
ing place That it was a poor person
who had boon buried there, 1 jifdcd by
its situation. Yes, indeed, wealth and
poverty-followed to the tomb, retaining
their outward mark of distinction even
Pcrhans I would not havo noticed It.
Hut Was it fancy was it reality J I saw
something movo upon it. I cautiously
rose and approached. What caught my
cycsT A bundle of rags, and two little
bare feet, stretched aoross tho mo)d. A
child, sobbing mournfully sobbing. I
ad.vanoed and touched the little speci
men of humanity on thp shoulder.
With a shiver and a start he jumped
to his feet, and turned his fearful, sor
rowing faco toward mo.' Frightened and
angry -at this interruption, be attemptod
to escape.'- ' 1 ;
"Stop, my littlo fellow," said I, in as
gentle a tone aa the occasion would per
mit, and catobing him' by the arm.
Come tell mo what you are crying for.
Don't bo afraid what is your name.f"
'Lambert M'hitc he stuticrcd through
his tears. -. , ,
'And for what are you crying so!" .
' Poor' boy, he broke from my grasp
threw himself down over the grave with
such a scresrrt as I thought would have
broken his heart,-and sobbing -piteoualy,
"Oh, mother, mother 1 dear mother 1" (
Alas II well knew for what he was
weeping.. . Ilia best friend and parent,
taken from him at so etrly an age,'' -Jit
was a lad loss, indeed ; I deeply sympa
thised with him. And such affection,
too). 'At the hour of midnight, mourn
ing In solitude over tbe silent tomb.- I
managed, to quiet him questioned and
learned more of his history. .His mother
tad been buried thjat afternoon. II is fa
ther was yet Hving. No brother, no sis
tors. iFoor, lonely child 1 .
,, Strange or was it strange f I thought
not of my own homor-I thought not of
tbe umo. . My mtna was engrossed in the
fate of tho poor helpless little fellow be-1
side mo. On ba lod me, oa through blind,
narrow alleys, I followed tbe told, small
band wherever it led. He stopped at
huU In frcnt of 5 crooked, -rot ton looking
building, dirty and ancient, as far as I
could ascertain in the dark." Qe spoke
not a word, but np ft nlth-dnrk, broken
pair of stairs. I Itumbliug almost at every
step, and roereoly knowing ii it was dis
cretion, whether it was policy or not, to
proceed any further, though I dearly
loved adventure, and now I certainly
knew not what was before me. At last
mv guide cut his hand to'a latch CI oould
only toll it was suoh by the sound) and
opened; dooy, , ,f f.
"lAJow, gamt UJokfng roomlVth but
two small windows, balf f tbe lights
stuffed- with rag?. The ceiling broken,'
oraeked and dirty. A Bmall table and a
light (oh poverty!) one'bitof tallow can-dlor-fliekriag?and
wasting by thf; wind
from the 'window-8tuck-'btwoeii- three
nails on a block of wood, threw a dint
glare , over .tho, greater portion of the
apartment, : .' '. -. ;'., ' . ' ,
. In one i oornor tliero lay a heap of rags,
meant I suppose, - for a bed, and in an
other a lot of old kettles an'd stove.
This, ae far as I could see, constituted
the possessions therein. Everything be
tokened want and wretchedness,
"And this is where you live, my boy f"
I asked. .
"Yes, sir." ;
"And where is your father V 1 "' 1
I had scarcely spoken even before an
answer conld be given, a heavy, olumsy
step could be heard outside on the stairs,
ana a hoarse, gruff voioe singing some
"It's fall or," whispered little Lam
bert. , Good beavers ! oould a follow creature
bo so degraded I Even on the night of
his wife's burial 1 - ' ;
A coarse, drunken bloat, in tho worst
state of intoxication, I saw as he tum
bled into the room and cast his wild,
bleared eyes upon me. His poor boy I
so young, and to experience such misery,
snch degradation in his only parent 1
mat tyranny ruled there 1 saw in a mo
ment, as the child crouched' from his
sight And what tho dead wlfo muBt
have suffered L The very thought bid mo
thank God that he had taken her to him
self. y . 7
- With an oath, the man demanded my
business. . I informdd him of the circum
stance in which I had found his son, and
politely requested that he would deal
mercif ully with him.
"That's, my business, and none of
your n," bo grunted savagely.
And, in defianco cf me, or to glut a
hungry and ferocious tomper, he rolled
toward the child, seized him, roughly, and
oomnienocd beating him in the most bru
tal manner. I remonstrated, add man
aged to get tho victim from his clutches,
with the determination of taking him
from tbo place. As I reaobed tbe door,
tho drunken brute, with terrible curses
on his lips, ordered me away from the
bouse, staggerod upon me, and raised bis
hugo fist to strike me down. I evaded
the blow : but bo, reeling from tho force
of the intention, fell forward through the
doorway, headlong over the stair, down,
down into the darknes,s head over heels,
with frightful velocity fell heavily at
the bottom of the stairs, and all was still-
Greatly exoi ted and fearful of the re
sult, I rushed for the light, leaped down
the steps in almost as quictc a time as tbe
drunkard before me, and bent over his
body. . ' ' ' '-
A frightful speotaolo indeed 1 Bruised
and oloody, he lay with his back broken,
expiring. It was his fat'o.

Nankin, April, 1867.
fflce Times in Tennessee,
As to the oondition of political matters
in Tennessee, the following, written by
"Mick" to the Cincinnati Commercial,
under date of Chattanooga, Apnl 28,
furnishes something of an idea :
Political affaire W6ar quito as unpleas
ant an rspect here as in Nashville. There
is little else to be hoard than complaints
against the malignant oppressions of
urowniow and bis clique and they don't
come from the lato rebels either, but'from
men who sorved gallantly in. the Federal
army, many of them in Ohio regiments.
One would think, to read the Radical pa
pers of the North, that there wero none
but rebels in the Conservative party of
Tennessee that it was made up exelu
sively of men who had not only worn the
gjay in tbe lato war, but were still anima
ted by the sentiments that induced them
to put it on in tho first place. Nothing
can be further from the truth, ao far as
seotion of the State Is ooncerned. The
most prominent workers in the Conserva
tive cause in Chattanooga are men who
have unequivocal records as good Union
soldiers, but whose soldiers' sense of hon
or and fair dealing revolt against tbe mer
ciless tyranny of tbe present State Gov
ernment, and drives them into any party
promsing reliof from it The find them
selves taxed as no other people are taxed,
and for no other purpose than to enable
Mr. Brownlow and his friends to carry
the elections. .
; They aro obliged to pay thoir share to
ward supporting a militia force, whioh
will cost betwocn oight and twelve mil
lions a year j and it has no other object
than, to overawe votors at the polls for
thore are (Jnitod Gtatea troops enough in
the State to moot any possible oontingen.
ey 1q the shapo of a riot or insurrection
Here, in Chattanooga, the Legislature
has saddjed them with a metropolitan po
lioe force, at an expense of not less than
126,000 year; while the peaoe of the
oity baa always been kept for less than
half that sum. The only objeot, of course
is to control the elections. And sa of
other abuses whioh I might name, unnec
essarily adding to tbe burdens and taking
from the libortiea of tbe people, in a man
nor nsvet before attempted or heard of. 1

A correspondent of the Chicago Jour
n?7, writing from Palestine, Bays : -' 1
' There" is, perhapsj net country' tjpon
the earth about which more has been
Written than Palestine.1 And few Tisitit
without being disappointed in regard to
many things. " It is certainly pleasing to
realizo that-you are in the same, city
where David .and Splotnou; reigned to
know that you walk the same streets and
'stand upon the same mountains onoe hal
lowed by the fodtstops of Christ . Along
iue panics or tne Jordan and over the
plains of Sharon I have' wandered' re
membering that I was treading upon
ground which was Intimately connected
with human history during a porfod of
almost three thousand years.- But while
strange emotions connected with the past
came stealing over me, I could but feol
disappointed at the desolation, barren
ness and dreariness of the whole ooantry.
I have not seen a wagon road in Pales
tine' Even the stones and timber for
building the houses of Jerusalem must
be brought in the city upon the backs of
camels and donkeys ; and tbe roads over
wbioh Abraham, David, Christ and the
Apostles once traveled are but 'paths
winding over rocks and around tbe base
of sterile mountains. In faot. this whole
land, said to have been once so beautiful ,-l
is now but a rocky, barren waste. I
think I havo seen moro good land in one
square mile in Iowa or Illinois than in
all Palestine. . ' '.
' Much of the eountry is occupied by
the Bedouin Arabs, and for the privilege
of visiting the river". Jordan and Pead
Sea, their Sheik requires 12,50 from each
person;' For this amount he sends a
guard of Arabs with you. The Bedouins
would be a noble race were it not for
their inborn disposition to steal,' lie, rob
and murder. I slept on a house-top
among tbem at Jericho, And while I
slept, with three to guard me, others out
side amused themselves by cutting each
otner s throats, and three wore reported
left dead on the field. Upon the whole I
tbink I should not like the Bedouins (or
neighbors, and think their presence in a
community would not be very agreeable.
UBut little of Jerusalem romains as it
was ia the days of Christ. A portion of
t&e nail on the side next to the Mount
of. Olive is doubtless the same that exist
ed tn His time, as is also a part of the
tower of David near the Jaffa gate. Tbe
I be stones in these old wails are many pt
them of wonderful nice. I measured one
which is twenty-four' feet long and al
most four feet in thlcknesb-. The ma.
ohincry by which these immense blocks
were raised to thoir places in the wall is
among the things of the post in the his
tory of tbe Holy City. Whenever a
atone is dressed more on its edges than
in the centre tbe workmanship is known
to be antique, and this U one of the
marks to which attention is called when
the old walls are shown. If I remem
ber oorreolly, the stones in the great Cen
tral depot at Chicago are dressed in the
same manner. It is quite easy to walk
entirely around tbe outside of the walls
of Jerusalem in three quarters of an
hour, and the present population t said
to be only 14,000. While looking at the
oity as' it now -stands, with its narrow
streets filled with dogs, Arabs and filth,
it is hard to realizo that it was onoo -the
home of more than one million human
bolnga, and the proud metropolis of a
mighty nation. While looking out of
the window at the Mosaue of' Omar.
where the Turks bear rule, I can but
ask myself the question, is it possible
that on that spot stood the Temple of
Solomon ? Is it there that David held
his court? The pages of history an
swer, Yes. That spot is Mount Moriah.
Upon that ground stood that Temple
whose glory filled the whole earth.
Good Girls In the South.

knows several girls in Marshall county
who were raised in the lap of luxury, with
fine carriages to ride in and money by the

We meet with no returning travelers,
who can relate to us their experience ;
tbey pass on never to return. We follow
our friends with straining eyes, aa one by
one tbey pass tne sea or lite and drawing
near to the shadowy land of eternity van-
lsb irom our sight.' J. ben tbe warning
speaks deeply to our unwilling hearts.
Perchance we have seen a beloved one
taken, from our family oirole. We have
seen the cheek so bright with health and
beauty, grow pale and wan. We have
listened to the dear voice, and marked
bow eaoh day it grew more loitering, till
it waa hushed in the silence of death
then we have drawn the hair from the
pain-cold brow, and teen the delicate
form deposited in tbe tomb. It is in mor
ments like those that we fully realise oar
aotnai condition that we ourselves are
slowly, yet surely, traveling towards our
graves. . ,
How many there are who seldom give
any consideration to this subject Tbey
are too busy, too anxious after worldly
wealth and power, putting iqrtb all tbeir
talents and energy for one great -objeot
in vie the possession of gokj, passing
with a careless glanoe and unfeeling
heart, the poor in their desolation and
misery : guarding with miserly care tbeir
dollars and dime) unconciously sowing
that others may .reap, for the, time set
apart in the future for rest and enjoyment
perhaps ' never oomes. ' Ere that time,
tbeir souls may be called away, an ac
count demanded, for tbp misused talents
entrusted to their care. '

rich and the poor, yet all passing along

What are riches, talent, wealth, power

nity f Merc bubbles that do not, or rath
er ought not, aatify the cravings of the
heart Days, weeks, months and years

S A good story is told of a certain
doctor, who sometimes drank a good deal
at dinner. - Ho was summoned one even
ing to see a lady patient- when he was
more than "half-seas 6ver," and ooooioes
that he was to. On feeling her pulso,
and finding himself unable to oonnt its
beats, ie muttered,- "Drunk, by Jove."
Mext morning recollecting the oiieum
stance, he was greatly vexed, aad just" as
he was thinking .what ' explanation he
should offer to the lady; a letter was put
into his hand.. "She too- well knew,"
said the letter,, .''that he b(d disoovored
the unfortunate condition she was in
when he visited her, and she entroated
him to keep the matter a secrot, in eon.
