For the Bugle. The Parted Friends. Amid New England' rallies, Where her laughing water flow, Two little maidens wandered In the days of long ago. In the time of vernal beauty, Through the summer's golden hours, Hand in hand they roved together,. Side by side they gathered flowers. Golden was the chain that bound them In their fair and guileless youth, And its price was more than rubies, For the links were love and truth. Bright and gladsome was their present, And they deem'd 'twould ever last; They fear'd not for the future, And they sighed not for the past. Years fled and they were parted ; One sought the blooming West ; Manhood's truth and childhood's beauty Make her lowly path-way blest. But the other still doth linger Beneath the old roof-tree Still beside her Father's hearth-stone, A maiden young and free. Never more with blilhsome spirit, 'Neath their own dear native sky. Shall they rove heart-linked together, As they rov'd in days gone by. Never on that sunny Will-side Never o'er that verdant plain, Or beside that murmuring river, Shall they gather flowers again. A few more days of sunshine And of shade will roll away, Then the quiet grave will open, To receive their kindred clay. God grant that then, together, 'Mid never-fading bowers. Their souls in bliss may wander, Seeking for immortal flowers. C. L. M. John Littlejohn. BY CHARLES MACKAY. John Liulejohn was staunch and strong, Upright and downright, scorning wrong; He gave good weight, and paid his way, He thought for himself, am! said his say; Whenever a rascal strove to pass, Instead of silver, money of brass, He took his hammer, and said with a frown, " The coin is spurious, nail it down." John Liulejohn was Arm and true, a You could not cheat him in two and two," When foolish Arguers, might and main, Darkened and twisted the light and plain, He saw through the mazes of their speech The simple truth beyond their reach ; And crushing their logic, said with a frown, " Your coin is spurious, nail it down" John Liulejohn maintained the right, Through storm and shine, in the World's de spite; When fools or quacks desired his vote, Dosed him with arguments learnt by rote, Or by coaxing, threats, or promises tried To gain his support to the wrongful side, "Ifay, nay" said John with an angry frown, ' Your coin is spurious, nail it down." When told that kings had a right divine, And that the people were herds of swine, That nobles alone were fit to rule, That the poor were unimproved by school, That ceaseless toil, was the proper fate Of all bat the wealthy and the great, John shook his head, and swore with a frown, " The com i spurious, nail it down. When told that events would justify, A false and crooked policy, That a decent hope of future good Might excuse departure from rectitude, That a lie of white, was of small offence, To be forgiven by men of sense, "Airy, nay," said John, with a sigh and frown, ' The coin is spurious, nail it down." When told from the pulpit, or the press That heaven was a place of exclusiveness, That none but those, could enter there Who knelt with the " orthodox" at prayer, And held all virtues out of their pale As idle words of no avail, John's face grew dark, as he. swore with a frown, " The coin it spurious, nail it down." Whenever the world our eyes would blind With false pretence of such a kind, With humbug, cant, and bigotry, Or a specious sham philosophy, With wrong dressed up in the guise of right And darkness passing lleell tor light, Let us imitate John.aud exclaim with a frown ' The coin is spurious, nail it down. Think of our Country's Glory. BT ELIZABETH M. CHANDLER. Think of our country's glory, All dimm'd with Afric's tears Her broad flag stain'd and gory With the hoarded guilt of years ! Think of the frantic mother, Lamenting for her child, Till falling lashes smother ller cries of anguish wild ! Think of the prayers ascending, Yet shriek'd, alas ! in vain, When heart from heart is rending Ne'er to be join'd again. Shall we behold, unheeding, Life' holiest feeling crush'd 1 When woman's heart is bleeding, Shall woman' voice be hush'd ! Ob, no! by every blessing That Heaven to thee may lend Remember their oppression, Forget not, sister, friend. MISCELLANEOUS. From the Prisoner's Friend. Notes by the Way. INTERVIEW WITH A PRISONER. In a former number I gave an account of my visit to the Eastern i'enitentiary on the Sabbath. I shall now sketch a few particu lars in the history of one of the inmates. The Warden and a Quaker accompanied me. On entering, I was introduced as one interest ed in criminals. The prisoner soon made us feel at home, remarking that his cell had not any very great accommodations, but he believed, he was as well supplied as t lie pro phet, who had a bed, a stool, and a candle stick.' He gave me his stool, while he sat on the floor. He was exceedingly commu nicative. The Warden allowed me to ask him any questions. He remarked 'that he had thought of asking to stay a while long er, as his sentence expired in one month. But,' said he, ' they won't let me s'.ay alter my sentence, nor they won't let me go before it expires.' ' (low long have you been in prison)' I asked. I have been in different prisons eversinco 1830, excepting one year.' Then,' said I, 'you have been 17 years in confinement. This is a long time to be shut out from society.' ' Yes,' he exclaimed, 'and I begin to feel old now and worn out. But I am treated kindly, and the Warden has not even spoken cross to me.' 1 looked round his cell, and seeing my wish to know more about his situation, he pointed to his little garden. 'See there,' he exclaimed, ' what a fine garden I have. I have raised several things. And now, said he to the Warden, ' I want to sell the proceeds. 1 ought to have $20, but I will sell it to you for $10. I always want justice done. I am a great hand for having justice done to me.' 'Let me know,' said I, 'something of your history.' ' Well,' said he, 'I have been in here 17 months, and 1 say this (turning to the War den,) that 1 have not received an unkind word from you.' 'I was,' he continued, ' in Sing Sing two years and a half, and such a prison I never was in before. I would not believe men could be so cruel ; why, it was worse than the Inquisition. When I first entered my cell, I received notice of the rules, but I forgot some of them. I omitted to put my hand through the gratings of the door when it is first closed, a custom which gives the keeper a chance to know that the prisoner is in without the trouble of looking within the door. For this neglect,' said he, ' I received one hundred and thirty-nine lashes! At an other time,' continued he, 'I had on forty- five pounds of iron. During one week I re ceived one hundred and fifty lashes; fifty at a time ! ' I remember,' he said, ' that one man was to receive the cat, (the name of the whip which has, I believe, sis tails,) and on in quiring why he was to be punished, the an swer was that it was for being ugly 1 Men were treated in the most brutal manner. If they refused to lake off their shirt, the lan guage was, ' d n you, take off that shirt!' Continuing his narrative, he said, 'I was punished about fifty times in Sing Sing, till finally I hardly dared to wink.' ' But did thee not deserve punishment sometimes V said the Warden. ' O ves. I sometimes transgressed the laws, and I felt revengeful, and I thought if I got out, I would not forgive those keepers.' ' Ah, but, said 1, ' you ought not to harbor revengeful leeling." Oh, 1 don l know about that,' said he, looking at me with great earnestness, as though this was rather a hard doctrine tor him. 1 saw his stale ol mind, and endeavor ed to calm him, and point him out the better way. ' But, continue your narrative, 1 said, 'lor I am deeply interested in the incidents con nected with one who has spent seventeen years within the walls of a prison. What were your temptations! What could have induced you to continue a life, which you contess has been so unpleasant) Well, said he, ' 1 will tell you ; his coun. tenance brightening to find me interested in the history ol one who had become so depra ved. 1 listened with intense interest. ' I am now forty-five years of age. I had no education when I was young; I was put in prison at fifteen year of age. And fiom there I escaped. I again commenced steal ing, and carried the goods to a house of As signaiion. I went two voyages to S. Ameri ca. In company with another, I afterward commenced stealing. We stole some jew elry. A pardon was alterwards granted again went to sea. I was afterwards taken up tor Burglary. I went afterwards on board a Alan of W ar. I escaped from her by swim ming away. I was again taken up lor Bur glary, and was sentenced for three years.' IJut,' said 1, interrupting his narrative, 'what could have induced you to go on in crime 1 Have you no principle 1 What are your religious views V Uh,' said he, I believe in future rewards and punishments.' But,' said the Warden, ' thee ought not to live so; thee may die in this criminal state.' , 'Oh, said he, very earnestly, '1 do not cal culate to die in this state.' 1 remarked, you ought not to live so now. It is not the idea that we have got to die, that should induce us to live well; we should love and fear God even if we were never to die. Religion is a matter for life, and when we are fit to live, we are fit to die.' And,' replied the Warden, who took rath er a different view of the great end of reli gion, 'thee may die now. Think of the shortness and uncertainly of life. For in stance; here was a case a few days ago, of a young man named Wood, who was on his journey. He was gay and cheerful. He was on the outside of the car; an accident occurred, and he was so injured that he soon died. Thee may die soon; thee had better be prepared for thy last hour.' The Prisoner looked earnestly upon the face of his keeper, a though his words had made a deep im pression; and as though he resolved from Each cell has a spot of ground connect ed with it, about sixteen feet long, and seven teen feet wide. In a few instances, this has been converted into a shop. I saw there the peach tree which Dr. Howe described so po etically in hi speech in Boston, at the meet ings of the Prison-Discipline Society. that hour to follow in the path of virtue and 1 integrity. ' Would you have worked if you hnd found some one to give you employment V I asked. The prisoner looked with much earnestness st me ns h sat on the floor of his cell, hav ing given me his only seat, and then said, ' When I was discharged, I could not find encouragement. The world brands the pri soner with infamy.' ' But,' said the Warden, 'thee should have been honest. I fear thee did not attempt to get work.' The prisoner looked with great earnestness upon his keeper, as if meditating some ex cuse, when he very Brchly said, ' How many police officers do you think are honevtt' To this, the keeper replied, Suppose there were not one, that would be no excuse for thee. Thee should have been honest and have sought for work. And if thee had not obtained employment, then thee might not have starved, but have gone to the Alms house.' 'The Almshouse!' exclaimed the prisoner; 'the Almshouse! but 1 could not go there. I would not like to go to such a place,' evi dently carrying the idea that that was worse than the prison. Yes,' said the Warden, ' but many honest people have gone there ; there is nothing so very had in going to such an institution. It would he far better than to commit crime.' Yes, but then there are so many discour agements when we get out. The officers know me, and then I always suspect people are looking at me as a conviot.' Bull' said the Warden, evidently wanting to encourige him to lead a better life, a man went nut the other day, and he found work, and was encouraged.' The prisoner's countenance brightened with the story which the Warden feelingly related, and he seemed resolved to lead a bel ter life. ' Now thee has been here seventeen months, and thee has not given me a cross word. Thee has made trouble in other prisons. Thee has violated the rules there, thee has shown that the lion can become a lamb. But just show these friends now how they talk in Sing Sing.' Hert. the prisoner gave a specimen of the conversation there, and the manner of con versing without opening the mouth or mov ing the lips. This could be done without detection. It was not exactly ventriloquism, but it showed, at once, the ease with which communication could be carried on between man and man even under the most vigilant eye of a keeper. ' Now,' continued the keeper, ' thee would not wrong me. I would be willing to truBt thee with money, but then thee might wrong others.' 'No,' said the prisoner, with great earnest ness, i would never wrong a man who trust ed me. A rogue's life is not so very pleasant after all.' ' Why, then,' I asked, 'did you continue a life which you, yourself, say was so disagree able and so hard V 'I have had many compunctions of con science, continued the prisoner, ' but then what could J do I could not somoiimes ob tain work and I should have starved.' ' Would it not have been better to have starved,' I asked, 'and died innocent, rather than to live guilty V 'starved ! said the prisoner, looking witn great earnestness into my countenance, as if trying to test my sincerity. And then as u making his boldest effort for an excuse, he said, 'did not Christ pluck the ears ot corn even on the Sabbath V I assured him that I would befriend any discharged prisoner, and our time having elapsed, we abruptly left the cell, leaving his strange excuse unanswered. Such was the substance or a conversation with one who knew all about prison life; one who had evidently weighed all the circum stances connected with crime; one who all the while, believed in a state of eternal pun ishment ; one who confessed that ' the way of the transgressor is hard.' The narrative was lmereBiing, ana i irusi n win snow me importance of doing for the Discharged Pri soner. It is evident that thousands might be saved, if proper means were taken. But the community is dead to the subject, but the time will come when such a Christian work will be done, and then many crimes will cease. Animals. A great many anecdotes are told of the sa gacity of animals, and in Jesse's recent work on Dogs, we find several that we have not met with before. Of the Dog' ability to find his way home, he says : "A few years ago some hounds were em barked at Liverpool for Ireland, and were safely delivered at a kennel far up in that country. One of them, not probably liking his quarters, found his way back to the port at which he had been landed from Liverpool. On arriving at it, some troops were being embarked in a ship bound to that place. This was a fortunate circumstance for the old hound, as, during the bustle, he was not no ticed. Me safely arrived at Liverpool, and on his old master, or huntsman rather, com ing down stairs one morning, he recognized his former acquaintance wailing to greet him. A similar circumstance happened to some hounds sent by the late Lord Lonsdale to Ireland. Three of them escaped from the kennel in that country, and made their ap pearance again, in Leicestershire. The love of home, or most probably affection for a par ticular individual, must be strongly implan ted in dogs to induce them to search over un explored and unknown regions for the being and home they love." He also tells a story of an acute Colley, as follows : "A lady of high rank has a sort of colley, a Scotch sheep dog. When be is ordered to ring the hell, he does so; but if he is told to ring the bell, when the servant is in the room whose duty it is to attend, he refuses, and then the following occurrence lakes place. His mistress says, Ring the bell, dog. The dog looks at the servant, and then barks hi bow, wow, once or twice. The order is re peated two or three times. At last the dog lays hold of the servant's coat in a signifi cant manner, just as if he had said to him, "Don't you hear that I am to ring the bell for you! Come to my lady." His mistress always has her shoes warmed before she puts them on; but, during the late hot weather, her maid was putting them on without their naving been previously placed before the nre, When the dog saw this he immediately in terfered, expressing the greatest indignation at the maid's negligence. Ha took the shoes from her, carried them to the fur, and after they had been Wafmed as usual, he brought them bnck to his mistress with much appa rent satisfiction, evidently intending to say, if he could, "It is all right now." Another tale is given of a sheep-dog : "The owner of a sheep-dog having been hanged some years ago for sheep-stealing, the following fact was authenticated by evidence of his trial : When the man intended to steal any sheep he did not do it himself, but de tached his dog to perform the business. With this view, under the pretence of look ing at the sheep with an intention to purchase them, he went throng 11 the flock with the dog at his heel, whom he secretly gave a signal, so as to let him know the individuals he wan ted, to the number of ten or twenty out of a flock of some hundreds. He then went away and at the distance of several miles, sent back the dog by himself in the night-lime, who picked out the individual sheep that had been pointed out to him, separated them from the flock, and drove them before him by him self, till he overtook hi master, to whom he relinquished 'them." The editor of the Literary Gazette adds the following : "These creature do such acts on the Scottish mountains, in regard to the guidance and direction of flocks, that they are utterly incredible without being seen, and nearly in credible when they are. The waving of a shepherd's arm at a distance far beyond the sound of h ia voice, is sufficient to regulate all their movements; and you may see thein a mile or two miles otT, on tops of hillsv obey ing every gesture of their master, pointing out various and complex operations. We saw a colley once in Perthshire taking a flock of sheep to Falkirk Tryst, or Fair ; and as the road was dusty, he chose to indulge his charge occasionally with a bit of green walk and nibble. To accomplish this, where he observed a gap in a hedge, he bounded into the field and ran on In the farther extremity on his route. If he found an opening there, he returned and drove the sheep into the pas ture to pick up a little on their way ; if not he occupied the gap and resolutely dented them entrance, driving them, with barking, along the turnpike road." In Davidson's "Trade and Travel in the Far East," a work lately issued in London, we have a nonce of a tame leopard : "While on the subject of wild animals, I may mention a leopard that was kept by an Lngllsh otiicer in samarang, during our oc cupation of the Dutch colonies. This ani mal had its liberty, and used to run all over the house after its master. One morning, af ter breakfast, the officer was sitting smoking his hookah, wilh a book in hia right hand and the hookah-snak in his left, when he felt a slight pain in the left hand, and, on attemp ting to raise it, was checked by a low, angry growl from his pet leopard. On looking down, he saw the animal had been licking the back of his hand, and had, by. degrees. drawn a little blood. The leopard would not sutler the removal ot the hand, but continued irking it with great apparent relish, which did not much please his master, who, with great presence of mind, without attempting again to disturb the pet in his proceeding, called to his servant to bring him a pistol, with which he shot the animal dead on the spot. Such pels as snakes nineteen feet long and full grown leopards, are not to be trifled with. The largest snake I ever saw was twenty-five feet long and eight inches in dia meter. 1 have heard of sixty feet snakes but cannot vouch tor the truth or tho tale." In an En"'itih work, called the "Remin iscences of the late Major Rogers," we find a word or two about the freaks of monkeys : He had once accepted the invitation of a brother officer, in a totally different part of the island, to try a few days' hostilities against the elephants of that neighborhood, and had arrived after a day's sport, to within a mile or two of the bungalow, where his host and hostess were awaiting his arrival, when, pas sing by a delightfully cool looking river, he thought a plunge would be the most renova ting luxury in existence ; so a plunge he de termined to take, sending on his servants wilh his guns, and an intimation that in ten min utes, he would be home to dinner. So strip ping and placing his cloths very carefully on a stone, he began to luxuriate in the water. He was a capital swimmer, and had swam to some distance, when, to his horror and dismay, on looking to the place where he had left his habiliments, he perceived a do zen monkeys "overhauling" his entire ward robe! One was putting its legs through the sleeves of his shirt; another cramming its head into his trowsers; a third trying to find if any treasure was concealed in his boot; whilst the hat formed a source of wonder ment and amusement to some two or three others, who were endeavoring to unravel its mystery by unripping the lining and taking half a dozen bites out of the brim. Aa soon as he gained. his mental equilibri um, (for the thing was so ridiculous as to make him laugh heartily, notwithstanding his disgust at seeing his garments turned to such " vile purposes") he made with all hasle towards the shore; but judge of his horror when he saw these ' precious rascals' eaoh catch up what he could lay hold ol, and rat iU nff at fill sneed into tne jungie i noi leav ing poor Rogers even the vestige of an arti cle of raiment to covar himself. All he heard was a glorious chatter.??, as they one oy one disappeared, the lasionu lugginguu mssmu, which, beiner rather awkward to carry, was continually tripping it up by getting between his legs. Here was a preuy picKie mr a Christian, under a boiling sun ! and here he stayed until the inmates of the bungalow, be ginning to suspect some accident, came out in eearch, and found poor Rogers sitting up to his neck in water, in a irame oi minu which we may conclude to be "more easily imagined than described. Midtu and Wisdom. Nobody can deny that thece is truth in the old saying, "It is good to be merry and wise." Not only is this imple truth, but sound philosophy. It is an excellent thing to be mirthful, when .nun! to smile at what amuses you; to Lnrh at what is ludicrous; in short, to look at the sunny side of things, and even in the gloom and cold of winter, to recollect that there is "a good time coming," when the sunshine and warmth of the gloriou summer, will make all ihincs glad. Thus, even while we enjoy ourselves, we may be ' wise' in do ing so. We may be exercising that hopeful, practical philosophy, which make the best of the present, and look cheeringly forward at the future, wilh it rich promise. In the spirit of most men lies a creative power, which only needs the right moment to call fotth the spark. A Sketch from Real Life. BY M. NOAH. At a musical soiree last winter, at the splen did mansion of a thriving merchant, and with al a man of taste and liberality, we were struck with the magnificence which met our eye in every direction. The highly polished mahogany doors, the ponderous anu oeauu ful Egyptian marble mantle pieces, the rich Wilton and roval carpets, highly polished chairs and divans, elaborately carved and gilt cornices, pier-glasses, suspended girandoles, satin curtains all alter me iasniun ui neii- rv IV. The drawing rooms were filled with elegantly dressed ladies and gentlemen, and the supper and retreshments presenteu a scene of richness and luxury only to he looked for from persons of overgrown lortunes. How long can this last 1 we said to our selves, together with reflections which press. ed upon us as to the rapid manner we gain and pet rid of fortunes in thia city New York. How like a rocket we ascend and de scend ! One day last week we took a ride In a light rockaway over one of the delighllul roads on Long Island, to catch a little air and appetite lor dinner, and stopped to look at an Italian collage wilh green Venetian Plazettea and porticos in neat taste, surrounded by a white paling, and filled with shrubbery a cheap light homestead, wilh some fields of corn and potatoes, and a patch ol wheat in the distance, While gazing on the simplicity, cheerfulness, and coiulort ot the premises, we were roused by hearing some one calling out " Hallo, stranger," and on looking, discovered it lobe our worthy host ot l'lace. He wore jacket and Manilla hat. " Come, alight and see my improvements, said he. " I must go down to town to dinner will be late." "No, you don't. My dinner is just ready and you 6hall dine with me. Here, loney take the gentleman s horse. Having enjoyed his hospitality while liv ing in splendor, 1 could not refuse his bread and salt under adverse circumstances; so I alighted and walked into the parlor. What a change! A plainly furnished cottage, cane bottomed chairs, wooden mantle pieces and plated candlesticks, mahogany framed look' ing glass, and eight day clock in the corner and a map or two on the walls. Then the dinner table how plain ! White delf plates, black handled knives and forks, tumblers and wine glasses blown at the New Jersey glass works, and salt cellars dear at a six pence. The dinner was plain but good th vegetables fresh the bread home baked and we were waited upon by a strapping girl with a significant squint, the hostess the late princely mansion looked fresh and ruddy in a cross-barred muslin dress and bob binet cap. She was cheerful and happy. We talked of numerous subjects, philosophi zed with all delicacy upon the admirable manner in which they bore the change in their condition. The hostess started, and the host rolling out a volume of smoke from a prinuipe cigar, exclaiming with surprise " Why, iny dear fellow, did you suppose I waB broke smashed gone over the dam eh 1 O, no, no ! This change you see is not owing to any reverse of fortune my busi ness is as prosperous as ever. I did not wait till bankruptcy overtook me; but consider ing our children, our future prosperity, and the obligations due to society and good ex ample, we agreed to spend $1500 per annum in the contented manner you see us, instead of $15,000 in the giddy mazes of fashion. I ride Into town to attend to my business, work in my garden, have plain and substantial chter, bake my own bread, make my own butter, lay my own eggs, and have good cheer for my old friends." Here was not only a change, hut an im provement, a cheap augmentation of happi ness, a true and sensible economy, promising rich results and worthy of imitation. A Night With a Duelist. A duel was fought near the city of Wash ington, under circumstances of peculiar atro city. A distinguished individual challenged his relative who was once hia friend. The challenged party having the choice of wea pons, named muskets, to be loaded with buckshot and slugs, ana me aisiance ten paces; avowing at the 6a me time his inten tion and dec ire that both parlies should be destroyed. They fought the challenger was killed on the spot; the murderer escaped unhurt! Years afterwards, a gentlemen was spending the winter in Charleston, South Carolina, and lodged at the same house with this unhappy man. He was requested by tho duelist, one evening, to sleep in the same room with him, but be declined, as he was very well accommodated in his own. On his persisting in declining, the duelist con fessed to hiin that he was afraid to sleep alone; and as a friend who usually occu pied the room was absent, he would esteem it a great favor if he would pass the night wilh him. His kindness being thus demand ed, he consented, and retired to rest in the room of this man of fashion and honor, who some years before had stained his hands in the blood of a kinsman. Alter long tossing on his unquiet pillow, and repeating stifled groans, that revealed the inward pangs of the murderer, he sank into slumber, and as he rolled from side to side, the name of his vic tim wa often uttered, with broken word that discovered the keen remorse that preyed like fire on hi conscience. Suddenly he would start up in his bed with the terrible impression that the avenger of blood was pur suing him ; or hide himself under the cover ing as if he would escape the burning eye of an angry God, that gleamed in the dark ness over him, like lightning from a thunder cloud! For him there was "no rest, day nor night." Conscience, armed wilh terrors, lashed him unceasingly, and who could sleep 1 And this was nut the restlessness of disease, the raving of a disordered intellect, nor the anguish of a maniac struggling in chains! It was a man of intelligence, edu cation, neaiin, ana innuence, given ud to himself not delivered over to the avenger of oiooa to oe tormeniea ueiore his time; but left to the power of his own CONSCIENCE. suffering only what every one may suffer who is aoanuonea oi uoa i The Beautiful. To love the beautiful in all things, to surround ourselves, as far a our means permit, with all its evidences, not only elevates the thoughts, and harmo nizes the mind, but is a sort of homara wa owe to the gifts of God and the labors man.
