BY REV. D. BUCK, D. D.
If you cannot plant rouf cottngc
'Mid perennial fruits and flowers; ,
Spending life's short summer season
" Qludwmc-lf among tho bowers ; ,
Ton may toil among the faithful
As they till Imnlaliuers land ;
You may live for daily duties, . -"
With a willing heart and hand. .
If your station here he lowly ;
l'f no title graeeyour name ; -If
you canuot boast of beauty,
And have neither wealth or fame ;
Yon may still be ki ndly-hearhsdr .
' Acting well your humble part ;
And though men may never praise you,
They will prize your noble hearL
If your path lead through affliction,
And you draw a sighing breath ;
If you cannot keep your loved ones
f 'rom the greedy grasp of Death ; .
You may smile amid your weepiug,
As you put your trust in Uod ;
And, by leaning on the Saviour,
You mav learu to kiss the rod.
If you cannot mount the heavens,
Vhere no cloud its shadow flings ;
Ranging through the realms of stinlii
With the eagle's tireless wings ;
You may be a Ringing Pilgrim,
With your cross from day to day ;
And behold your Master's footsteps
All along your lowly way.
If you cannot move the mountains,
Or the ocean's depths explore ;
If you cannot chain the billows
As they range around the shore ;
You may understand 1'vur Mt'xioit,
What you have to do or bear ;
You may work for man's salvation,
As you for your heaven prepare.
Hasten, then, be up arid 'doing ;
Time is th ing, death is ner ;
Never mind the toil and sutfriug
Jesus numbers every tear.
See ! the pearly gates are opening ;
Hark ! what music tills the air ;
Loved ones ready are to greet you, " '
Beck'ning you their bliss to share.
Little Brown Hands.
From our Young Folks.
Thcr drive home the cows from the pasture,
Up through the long shady lane,
W here the quail whistles loud in the wheat.fields
That are yellow with ripening grain.
They rind, in the thick waving grasses,
Where the scarlet-lipped strawberry grows,
They gather the earliest snowdrops
Anil the lirsl crimson buds of the rose.
They toss the new hay in the meadow ;
They gather the elder-bloom white;
They tiud where the dusky grapes purple
In the sott-tinled October light.
Thev know w here the apples hang ripest,
And are sweeter than Italy wines ;
Thev know where the limit hauirs Ihc thickest
On the long thorny blackberry vines.
They galher the delicate sea-weeds, .
And build tinv castles of sand :
They pick up the beautiful sea-shells
Fairy barks that have drifted to land.
They wave Irom the tall, rocking tree tops,
win-re the oriole's hanmiock-uest swimrs.
And at nijrht time are folded in slumber
By a song that a fond mother sings.
Those who toil bravely arc strongest ;
The humble and poor become great ;
And trom the brown-hanileil cnililrcn
Shall grow mighty rulers of stile.
The pen of the author and statesman,
The noble and wise of the land,
The sword and the chisel and palette, .
Shall be held in the little brown hand.
From Harper's Weekly.
"Let Us Have Peace."
So says General Grant, so says every
patriotic and intelligent man lnthecoun

speedily obtained? That is really the
question of t he election. AH the Other

words a definite j ol'tical reorganization
ot the unrepresented States, there can 1)3
no industrial tranquility or prospeiity.
Xo full current of capital and skilled
labor will set Southward until it is plain
tliat the foundations of civil order are re
established. Upon what principle shall
the work be done. -
General Grant is of opinion that Peace
can most truly be established by the suc
cess of the reconstruction policy of Con-
cress, and by Constitutions securing
equal, civil and political rights to a!
Without this condition, there is no hoj

of the general intelligence which is the
sole condition of a free government. The
Republican party which sincerely sup
ported the war: winch fully understoou
it: which abolished slavery to secure the
victorv : which established the Freed-
mau s Jiurcan ns a necessary temporary
consequence of emancipation, which de
clared the equal civil rights of the freed
men as the letntimatc result ot their free
dom, has also declared their political
rights as the security not only ot their
own freedom but of the national welfare.
It was necessary to decide whether
emancipation should be sustained or sla-

duty. A? f Or the latter Course, It Was ail
aurdly rerolting impossibility.
" r J , .-, . . r
It was determined to maintain emanci
pation : President Johnson required the
States regained from rebellion to adopt
the emancipation amendment. Ihe sub
lime claim of the right of State
sovereifrnitv- to enslave the industrial
population was peremptorily, contemp
tuously, aud properly ciisregarueo. uy mm.
Tim United States havinsr subdued a re
bellion which left eertaiif States without
anv civil o-overnment, said to them :
'Yon must, herrm ' vouf restoration to
renew political organization oy agreein.
that slavery is abolished." , Most of them
acquiesced. That act containetrthe whole
principle of reconstruction, it was a
dictation of terms by tho Government,
and their acceptance by the States to be
reorganized. The Government has no
right to do anv thins whatever, or it had
a perfect right to do whatever it deemed
essential to the national welfare, with
or (Hie regartt to the great principles OI
This is the view of General Grant and
of the Republican iiartv. Udou that
Erinciple its policy of reconsti uction is
ased. Having ample authority under
the Constitution to suoauc tne rebellion
by all honorable and recognized methods,
includin2 emancipation, it has the au-
tbontv to do whatever is iiecessaryto
" - l .1 ..: .
secure emancipation ana the victory ot
which it was an element It proposes
therefore, equal suffrage in the late rehel
States. It does not propose confiscation
nor any vindictive punishment, and
while it consults experience aHd common
sense in denj'iua; to a few of the most
conspicuously disaffected, a present voice
in the government, it i;ivors me removal
of disqualification just as fast as the evi
dent -condition of society will allow.
Thus, by obliterating as rapidly as pos
sible the traces oi tne oia syotem ot .sla
very ; ' by .forbidding its . perpetuation
tinder other names and forms; by defend
ing the equal, civil and political rights
ofthc whole population, the Republican
.1 '. f '
policy seeks peace ana prosperity , lor
the Southern States and for the whole
country, upon conditions which-the high
est, sagacity approves, and the widest
experience confirms. "
The Uemocratic poncy is uirectiy an
tagonistic to the Republican.
The party wiucu inns proposes to re-
open tne wnoie siujeci, io leave iu
questions arising from emancipation and
the war to be settled for each State by
the ex-rebel slaveholders in it, calls it
conservative as wen as democratic.
Resisting the logic of events and des-
riisinc facts, upon the one hand it pan
ders to every odious prejudice and in
flames every convempiioie passion upon
the other. YA iui one side of its mouth
it shouts "State Rights;" with the
other, "Down with the rsiggcr." In
one breath it is " The Constitution ;" in
the next, "This is a White Man's
Government," This is the conservatism
of the stews and the slums. This is the
democracy of hatred and ignorance.
This is the spirit which sneers, at Grant,
Liberty and Equal Rights, and announ
ces that the way to have " peace in the
Southern Stctes is to despise their labor
Saviors of the Republic.
The character of the Demociatic par
ty can be best learned by observing the
character and antecedents of the men
that the party have chosen to represent t
The personnel of the Democratic Na
tional Convention is therefore a subject
of curious speculation and instructive
contemplation. Here are some of the
representative men of the Democratic
party, or as the N. V. World has it,
the men upon whom the Republic relics
for salvation. '
Gen. N. Ii. Forrest, who before the
slaveholders' rebellion, was a wholesale
and retail dealer in men, women and
childreu ; being senior member of the
firm of Forrest, Jones & Co. whose place
of business was 80 Adams St., Memphis
Tenn. Having found that raising ma
lattoes for the market, was a profitable
business, Forrest was the first to join the

Hon. S. B. Rn2gles, of the State ot

its points. Let all read and consider the
solemnity ot the issues they involve .

Would Mr. Blair be a Safe President?

Presidential election, the public charac

Geu. McChllan, the candidate on the

weak man, of no well defined or strongly
held opinions, who would inevitably be
the tool ot stranger men if he were
elected, and over w hom a man like Pen
dleton would exercise a controlling inrlti
No doubt this belief had much to do
with the overwhelming defeat that
befell the ticket. People who believed
Mt Clellau to be harmless and right-minded,
feared Pendleton. Voters, who had
no fault to find with McClellan's letter

positive opinions of Pendleton would
