Oft in childhood’s rosy boors
Musing by tbs rippling streams—
Culling m.m fheir banks Ihe Unwin,
Radiant with tha mornings beams—
Have I wandered, sad and lonely,
Thoug bifii of Ihe scenes of yore.
Dreaming of loaf Ir.ved only,
Dreaming, dreaming evermore.
Golden twee of rtfismory linger
Round the apdt where o'ft I’ve played ;
Forma of loved ones, once familiar,
Many years in death ha»e laid.
But they’re with me new os riser,
Soothing, as the momenta’tee—
Oh that'ties like these should sever,
Oh that thua our lives should bo.
Like Mile bubble <*n the fillin’ain,’
Or the dewy tear of morn,—
Like the mis< that shrouds the mountain,
Giving joy to every song.
Are those dear old scenes of childhood—
Childhood’s -guileless, sinless veers,
And Ihe cottage by the wildwood—
Onee again they bring back tears.

Amanda Mann to Mr. A. R. Nott, all cf
The following poetical correspondence is
laid to have actually passed between the
above nami-d couple, and to have been the
tons fide “ proposal" and “ reply.” The fact
that they Wire tltv-jteratc punamra, makes the
statement'more probable. The last s. arris,
we presume, waa added by our correspondent:
Oh, that I could prevail, my fair,
That vUre Unite o«r lot;
Oh. 'ake a man, Amanda Mann,
And tie a double '’knot.”
Yoor cMnens drives me to despair—
For what shall I do ) ab, to hat 7
For you I’m growing iliin and spare—
For you I’m a “pino MU.”
•If I ahould hear that you had died,
’Twould kill me on the spot;
Yet only yesterday 1 cried,
“ Ah, would that the were Nott I”
The “chords" and tendnb df nty heart
A round theefondly “twine”—
Amanda, heal thia aching smart!
Amanda, oh be mine !
These very terms, as I opine,
SUggeat united lot*;
'■‘Let'* tie, then, dear, these “ cords” and
“ twine,"
Into hymenial knots.
‘This life, we know, is hrit a span,
Hence1 have been afraid
That I should atill remain A. Mann,
And die at last—a maid.
And often to myself I say,
'On todking round I find
There’s Nutt, * men Hi every way
Just suited to my mind,
I fain would whisper him, apart,
He’d make me blest for life—
If he wcult! take me to his heart
And make A. Mann a wife.
Love nst, my mot her often says,
And so, too, says the song—
I’ll heed the hint in future days.
And (see Nott well and long.
Then, oh ! let Hymen on the spot,
His chants around me throw—
And bind me ir. a lasting knot,
Tied with a single beau.
And now 1 give myseit ro you,
And thus unite our lots—
And tie these “ cordi and twine,” into
A ftoz- n little Nntta.

In a little village in the Slate of Hosier
ditiit, in the year 1844, there was “ all sort*”
of excitement concerning Ihe ducrines of
ilia arch deceiver Miller. For months tie
Midnight cry, followed hy the Morning
Howl and the Nonnday Tell, had circulated
through the village and aormundtng coon
tie* to an extent not even equalled by Mr.
D’h celebrated apeech. Men disponed of
property lor little or nothing. The women
were pile ami ghastly from watching and
praying, or at least, timae wlnt believed in
the coming ascension looked as il they were
about haff over a second a Hack of tlie
•Chfha and lever. There were, however,
some “ choice spirits’* {not choice in theirs,
however) who notwithstanding rhe popu
larity of the delusion, would not enlist under
rhe manner of me sscentioniais.siid among
these was a wild, ha rum scaruin blade,from l
down east,"by life name ufCaleb Newham.
Now Caleb was as hard a case as von
would meet on Ihe fourth of July in Texas,
—always alive for fun anil sport, of anv
and every description, and a strong disbe
liever in Mtllerisiii.
Tlie night of tlte third of April, was the
tiine agreed upon out west '(hr the grand
exhibition of •* ground and lofty tumbling”
and about ten o'clock of the night, num
bers of the milleritea assembled on the outs
skirls of the town, on a little eminence,
upon which the proprietor had allowed a <
few trees to stabd. In Ihe crowd, and the
only representative of hie race present, was
a free negro, by the name of Sam, about
as ugly, black, woolly, and rough descend
ant of Ham as ever baked his shins over a
kitchen fire.
Sam's head was small, body sod arms
very long, and his legs bore a remarkable
resemblance to a pair of hams, in lact, put
Sam on a horse, his lej»sclasped around his
neck, his head towards llte tail, and his
arms clasp ng the animal's hams, and at
ten paces off you would swear he was an
old set of pitent gearing.
Tlie leader of the Md'.eritea owing to an
ancient grudge lie bore him, hated Sam
' like smoke,' and had done all in his power
to prevent his admittance among the4 elect’
but all to no purpose; Sam would creepir.
at every meeting; to night there he was
again, dressed in a white robe of cheap
cotton secured to his body by a belt, and
shouting ami praying as ioud as the best of
Now, on tlie morning of the third, Cahe
had, with a deal of perseverance, and more
trouble, managed to throw a halfincn hemp
cord over the- branch ol an oak, which
stretched its long arms directly over thr
spot where Ihe Mtllerites would assemble;
one end he had secured to the body of the
tree and the oilier to a stump some dts
tsnre <ffl
Anoui len ii'chick, wnen ine excoemem
was gening “ .-ibmn eighty pounds to the
inch,” Mr. Cube, wrapped in an old sheet,
walked into the crowd and proceeded to
fasten, in as secure a manner as possible,
the end of the rope to the hack part of the
belt, which confined Sant's robe, and having
succeeded, sloped to join some of his com
panions who tad the other end. The lew
stars in the sky threw a light over the scene
and in about a minute nr two the hoarse
voice of Sam was heard excla:ming:
“Whoop! Whoo!! I’se going up just
now. Wlio-o- uii!"
And sure enough Sam was seen mount
ing in the “tetherial blue.” This was
however, soon cheeked when he cleared,
“ terra firm” a lew feet.
“ Glorv !’’ cried one.
‘ Hallelujili V cied another.
Shrieks and yells made the night hideous.
Some fainted ; others prayed, and not a lew
Now whether it was owing to the light
ness of his head, or the length and weight
of his heels, Sam’s position was not a
pleasant one; the hell to which Cabe’a curd
was attached was bound exactly around
the cen.re of gravity, and Sam swung like
a pair of scales head up and heels down, at
the same time sweeping over thec.owd like
a pendulum which motion was accelerated
by his strenuous clapping ol hands and
vigorous kicking. At length tie became
alarmed and wanted to come down.
“ Lor a massy!” cried he, “just lake up
poor nigga to urn husni, nr let l.im down
easy, easy. Let him down again, please
uni Lor, dis poor niggar will go straight
home to urn bed, ngli-h !”
And Sam’s teeth chattered with alright,
and lie kicked again more vigorously than
| lie did before, bringing bis head directly
downwards, and Ina heels upwards, when
1 a woman shrieked out—
“Oli, Dear brother Sam, oh, take me up
with you.”
She sprang at his head as he swept by
her and caught him hy the wool, fetching
him up * a standing.’
“ Gosh, sister,” cried Sam, “ lef go urn
poor nigga’s hair.”
Cabe gave another pull at the rope, but
Ihe additional weight was too much, ine
belt gave wav, and down came Sam, his
head taking the leader of the saints a ‘leel
er’ juai between the eyea.
“ Gosh, is I down again?” cried Sam.—
“ I is, bless the Lor! But I was nearly dar
—I seed de gate.”
The leader wiped his overflowing pro
bo»c a, look Sam by the nap of ihe neck,
led him to the edge of ihe crowd, and giv
ing him a kick, said :
“ Leave you cussed ha boon ! You’re so
"fly, f lenow'd (key wouldn't let you in.
Use o» Slander.—That slander is often
beneficial io the |>ers»n slandered is indis

A matt somewhere nut West was e'ecied to
I Congress. He was totally unqualified in
every respect for the position. A friend at
Washington once salted him—
” flow'lire deuce did vou manage to get

“ ll:i 7—what?—how?—is stealing p:gs

•* No—hut as soon as it was known, the

of an innocent man for parly puriMNies—

At the next election lire -nppmtent was
elected. Hia friend meeting hint one day
asked hint how it happened.
