Listl list! what tone was that which seemed to rise, Upon the wind of midnight? Nature sounds , No knell o‘er earth for the departed year; ‘ Yet when its last breath passed into the void . at] ()f the by—gone eternity, henrd, Echoed within the chambers of my soul, , A sound. perchance the shadow ofa sound, Wild, strange and dismal, as it we're aaml— ' A low and landed wail from Me-graves And Sepulehres of ocean and of earth— - Upon the chilly air. Uh, was it not , The solemn voice of old eternity, _ Uttering one cry. one wild and deep lament, ’ For his dead child! '- The year, idea! is gone _ Forever from the world! ‘llc seemed too strong’, Too mighty e’er to die. He laid his hand ‘ 0 121113. me ' The green grass of the grave: he blew aloud The trumpet blast of battlc,,und dark hosts , Met in the mortal shock, and when the ﬂame . . And smoke of conﬂict had gone by they lay Like Autumn’s red leaves on the piain; he passed ‘ O’er earth, and, at each wave of his broad wlngs, y Volcano, earthquake, whirlwind. storm and flood, ‘ Sprung up beneath the silent spell, . ' And wrought the fearful errands of their destiny; Yet now, his own great mission all fulﬁlled, He lies on broken pinions with the dead, There, there to sleep forever. The old your, . Called forth from earth a'blooming paradise of sweet spring ﬂowers—he wave his Autumn wand And they were not. He wake in human souls Myriads of hopes and joys and burning loves, That seemed like things of irnmortnlity- He touched them nnd thcymdied. Another year, A been from God, is cost neuth the skies, And what is darkly hidden in the still And silent depths of its mysterious months, We may nnt know—thank God, we may not know, We only know that with each passing month, And day, and hour, the low, deep wail of grief, The mnddtned cry of agony, the éilOM Of ﬁerce ambition, the loud thnnnef'Shock ~ Ut‘ bloody conﬂict, and the knell of deaih Will echo, each its one brief moment, o‘er The sea of time, and then be_swnllowcd up, And lost forever in the onward sweep of its remorseless and nnpitying waves. . A. Ward Sees Prince Napoleon. ' Notwithstandin l haint writ much for the pa' pers of late, nobody needent ﬂatter theirselves that the undersined is ded. On the contry, " I still live,” which words was spoken by Danyil Webster, who was a abel man. Even the old line wigs of Boston will admit that. Webster is ded now, howsever, and his mantel has probly fallen into the hands of some dealer in 2nd hand close, who cant sell it. Leastways nobody pears to be goin round wearin it to any considerabel extent now-adays. The rigiment of whom a was kurnel ﬁnerly concluded they was better adapted as Home Gards, which acconutst‘or your not hear in of me, ear this, where the hauls is the thickest and where the canon doth roar. But as an American citizen, I shall never cease to admire the masterly advance'our troops made on Witching ton from Bull Run, a short time ago. It was well dun. I spoke to my. wife , about it at the. time. My wife said it was well dun. ' It havin ther4 been determined to pertect Baldinsville at all hazzuds, and as there was no apprehension of any immejut danger, I thort I’d? go off onto a pleasure tower. Accordinly I put‘ on a clean biled shirt and started for Washing ton. 1 went there to see the Prins Napoleon, and not to see the place, which I will here take occasion to obsarve is about as uninteresting a locality as there is this side of J. Davis’s futur tome, if he ever does die, and where I reckon they’ll make it so warm for him that he will si for his summer close. Its easy enuﬂ' to see why a man goes to the poor house or the penitentiary. It's becaws he can’t help it. But why he should woluntarially go and live in Washington is intire ly beyond my comprehension, and I can’t say any fairer nor that. I put up to a leadin hotel. I saw the landlord and sed, “How d‘ye do, Square? ‘ “Fifty cents; sir,” was his reply. “Sir P” “Half—a—dollar. We charge twenty-ﬁve cents for lookin at the landlord and ﬁfty cents ror speaking to him. If you want supper a boy will show you to the dinin room for twenty-ﬁve cents, Your room bein in the tenth story, it will cost you ‘9. dollar to be shown up there.” “How much do you ax a man for breathin in this equinomikal tarvun f?” sed I. - Ten cents a breth,” was his reply. Washington hotels is very rasonable in their charges. [N. B.—This is :‘arkassumﬂ I sent up my keerd to the the Prints, and was immeiitly ushered before him. He received me kindly axed me to sit down. 1 “I have cum to pay my respecks to you , Mis ter Napoleon, hopin I see you hale and harty.” “I am quite well,” he sed. “Air you well, sir P” . “Sound as a cuss l” I answered. He seemed to be pleased with my ways, and we entered into conversation at onct. “How’s Lewis P” I axed, and he sed the Em peror was well. Eugeny was likewise well, he sed. Then I axed him was Lewis a good provider? did he cum home arly nites? did he perfoom her bedroom at a onseasonable hour with gin and tanzy? Did he go to “the Lodge ” on nites when there wasn’t any Lodge? did he often hav to go down town to meet a. friend? did he have a extensiv acquaintance among poor widders whose husbands was in Californy? to all of which questions the Prints perlitely replide, givin me to understan that the Emperor was behavin well, “I ax these questions, my royal duke and most. noble highness and imperiais, becaws I’m anxious to know how he stands as a man. I know he’s smart. He is cunning, he is long hedded, he is deep—he is grate. But onless he is good he'll come down with a crash one of these days, and the Bonyparts will be buscid up agin. Bel; yer life." “Air you a preacher, sir P" be inquired, slitely sarkastical. “No, sir. But I believe 1n morality. I likewise bleeve in Meetin Houses. Show me a place where there isn't any Meetin Houses and where preach ers in never seen, and I’ll show you a place where old hats air stuffed into broken winders. where the chi ren air dirty and ragged, where the gates b , :rho hinges, where the wimmin air slip-shod, a' _"where maps of the devil’s “wild land” air 3 ed on men’s shirt bosums with tobacco jooceX ‘ y it}: what I'll show you. Let us consider what itbﬁ-preaohers do for us before we aboose ’em.” l He sad he didn‘t mean to aboose the clergy.— Npt stall; and he was happy to see thatl was in te ‘ ed in the Bonypart family. migrate family," sed I. “But they scooped th . y nin.” .“H '1 "air ?” v u," _7 , the Grand. The Britisbers scooped 0‘ ‘ i 1“ «W .‘i ﬂewanted to do toomuch. Bill'ai'heisubsekently died at St. Heleny! There’s ‘Mthaugmcsunujgary man this world eVer projuced pegged out. It was rather hard to con sine such a man as him to St. Heleny, to Spend his larst dsys in catchin mackeril, and walkin up land down the dreary beach in a military cloak drawn titely round him, (see picter book,) but so it was. ‘Hed of the army ! Them was his larst words. So he had bin. He was grate l Don‘t I wish we had a pair of his old boots to command sum of our Brigades l” This pleased Jerome, and he took me warmly by the hand. “Alix-under the grate was punkins,” I continued, ‘ -“but Napoleon was punkinserl Alic wept be-‘ ’caws there was no more worlds to scoop, and then took to drinkin.’ He drowndid his sorrers in the ,ﬂowin hole, and the ﬂowin bole was too much for him. It generally is. He undertook to give a snake exhibition in his boots, but it killed him.— Thgt was a badjoke for Alic !” “Since you are solicitous about France and the Emperor, may I ask you how your own country is getting along?” sed Jerome in a pleasant voice. - “IV; mixe'd,” I sed. "But 1 think we sha.'.l Cum out all right.” “Columbus, when he diskivered thig magniﬁcent continent, could have had no idea of the grand eur it would one day assoom,” sed the Prints. “It cost Columbus twenty thousand dollars to ﬁt out his explorin expedition," sad I. “If lie had bin asensibli man he'd hav put the money in a boss railroad or a gas company, and left this magniﬁ cent continent to the intelligent savages, who, when they got hold of a good thing, knew mud to keep it, and who wouldn't hav seceded, nor re belled, nor knockt Liberty in the bed with a slung shot. Columbus wasn’t much of n feller after all. It would have been money in my pocket if he’d staid to home. Chris. ment well but he put his foot in.it when he sailed for America.” W? tallked some more about matter: and mfgmammtz renown-«mm “any good bye to you, noble sir, and good luck to you. Likewise the same to Clotildy. Also to the gorgous persons who compose your soot. If the Emperor’s boy don’t like livin at the Tooleries, when he gils older,and would like to imbark in the show bizness. let him come with me and I’ll make a man of him. You ﬁnd us sumwhat mix ed, as 1 before observed, but come agin next year and you’ll ﬁnd us clearer nor ever. The Ameri can Eagle haa lived too sumptuously of late—his stummic has becum foul, and he’s now takin aslite emetic. That’s all. We’re gettin ready to strike a big blow and a sure one. When we do strike the fur will ﬂy and secession will be in the hands of the undertaker, sheeted for so deep a grave that nothin short of Gabriel’s trombone will ever awaken it! Mind what Isay. You’ve heard showman l" i Then advisin him to keep away from the Peter Funk auctions of the East, and the proprietors of corner lots in the West,l bid him farewell and went away. :5 There was a levee at Senator What’s-his-name’s and I thought I’djine in the festivities for a spell. gho should I see but she that was Sarah \Vat kms, now the wife of our Congresser, trippin in ithe dance, dressed up to kill in her store close.— ‘Sarah’s father used to keep a grosery store in our town, and she used to clerk it for him in busy times. I was rushin up to shake hands with her when she turned on her heel, and tossin her hed in a contemptuous manner, walked away from me very rapid. “Hallo, Sal 1” l hollered,can’t you measure me a quart of them best melasses P I may want a codﬁsh, also !” I guess this reminded her of the litile red store, and ”the days of her happy childhood.” But I fell in with a nice little gal after that, who was much sweeter than Sally’s father’s melasses, land axed her if we shouldn'tvgiide in the‘messy ,dance. She sed we should, and we Glode. I intended to make this letter very seris, but a few goaks may bav accidentally crep in. Never mind. Besides I think it improves a komick paper to publish a geek once in a while. Yours Muchly, WARD, (ARTEMUS). SPEECH or GEN. MCCLELLAN.—On the occas ion of the presentation of a sword voted him by the common council of Philadelphia, Gen. Mc Clellan replied as follows; I ask you, sir, to give my warmest and deepest thanks to the honorable body you represent for this entirely unmerited compliment. I could thank on better if I thought that I deserved it, but Ido not feel that I do. Nothing that I have yet accomplished, would warrant this high com ;pliment. It is for the future to determine wheth ier I shall realize the expectations which have ibeen centered in me. I trust and feel that the iday is not far distant when I shall return to the ‘place dearest of all others to me, there to spend ‘the balance of my life among the people from ‘whom I have received this eautiful gift. The war cannot belong. It may be desperate. I ask ‘in the future forbearance, patience and conﬁdence. iWith these we can accomplish all, and while I know that, in the great drama which may have our hearts‘ blood, Pennsylvania will not piay the least, I trust that, on the other hand, she will play the highest and noblest pa't. I again thank you, and again ask you to con vey to the council my most sincere thanks for the sword. Say to them that it will be my ambition to deserve it hereafter. I know Ido not now. Worship I Worship God, for if not him whom shall we worship? Shall we look forth upon Nature, in all her varied phases, and mark not the ﬁnger print of a greater than Nature? Shall we gaze upon the ﬂeecy, ever—changing clouds, and the twinkling stars which peep from them, and forget, Him of whom it is said ‘the heavens declare his power, and the ﬁrmament showeth his handi work E” Shall we, turning to ourselves, examine these ‘fearfully and wonderfully made” bodies 01 ours; count the beating pulses; mark the kindling eye and glowing cheek ; ~and still deny our Maker Nothing? No; ﬁrmwwﬁ there is a germ o adoration, in every living, im-_] mortal soul there is an altar ever smoking with the incense of some devotion. It may be her}, diﬂkrent from the worship enjoined upon us, but it is no less worship. "The miser, as he glotes over the yellow dust of which his idol is composed, pays homage to the glittering particles. How reverently he lays away the cold metal, and how scrupulously he guards it from intruding eyes! Ah! would he strive as earnestly for the ﬁt hes of ‘the life to come ;’ or, that he gave to his Creator the obeisance he be stows upon that Creator's production! The de votee of fame, too, treads sedulously the thorny path leading to her towering ediﬁce, keeping her commandments, and striving with might and main to reach the laurel in her hand. ‘ﬂ golden crown,’l whose luster shall never dim, were his by as much, exertion—a name to liveforever if written among ‘the Lord’s anointed.’ “The mother, as she guides the tottering steps of her child, and afterward watches his strength ening, growing course, feels that upon the altar of her love she could sacriﬁce, if need be, her very life. Has she forgotten the Giver in the gift? W'ill she wtrship the workmanship till she forget the Hand that formed it? Will not her mother’s heart, like Hannah’s, beat gladly responsive to the great requirement; and will not her hand lead willingly to the temple the young Samuel, in whom her highest earthly hopes may be cen tered? “The naturalist reads he not in every blossom spray, in every autumn-tinted leaf, a living traCery of language which bids him worship God? The birds trill forth their sweet notes as anthems of his praise, and stretch their glossy wings toward ‘the clouds beyond which their Maker dwells; and Islmll we be silent, nor lift our hearts and voices awash. dawn: Inability? shit“. gun. with the astronomer upon the countless orbs of night, and forget at whose command these starry hosts were marshalled into the empyrean ﬁelds? Rather ought not each glittering star to point as, ‘to Him whose brightness is above the noonday sun,’ and as it twinkles on and on, say to our fancy, by its own submission to a heavenly law, ‘worship God ?’ “Worship Him, for he liveth, and hath lived from the beginning; He it is wh use breath is im mortal, and who holds in His hands the gift of life or death. ‘Worship Him,’ who frt m drrk ness and disorder spoke into existence this bright and beautiful world; who girded the waters with towering cliffs and clothed the earth with verdure; who bade ‘lhe hils to clap their hands and the mountains to kiss the skies ;' who crest the hillow with foam and the valley with ﬂowers; who hath given us in nature all that is necessary to lift our hearts on high. His power is visible in all His works, from the chaos, without form and vozd, to man, the topstone in the temple of creation ; from the tiniest lichen to the tallest ‘forest king ;' from theimerriest grain of sand to the loftiest mountain pinnacle. His voice whispers in the sighing wind, or thundersl’mid the tempest’s roar; the dew—drop exhales itself in adoration, and the water-wastes spout his praises.’ “ ‘Worship Him,’ for ‘he possesses in perfection those attributes which excite our highest admira tion. ‘WORSHIP HIM,’ for ‘He is a God of love and justice.’ ‘His mercy endureth forever, and his glory is from everlasting to everlasting.’ ” FALLING FROM GRACE—A good story is told of a certain Methodist dominie of the pioneer stamp. The dominie had in some way incurred the displeasure of one of his members—one of those touchy, irascible saints, of which nearly each particular “charge" or “circuit” has one or more! representatives. The dominie had tried in everyi way to eﬁ‘ect a reconciliation. He had labored personally with him earnestly, but. all to no pur pose; so be expelled him as a matter of course. The ex-brother then took every occasion to insult and wound the feelings of the pastor. He slan-i dered him, abused him to his face and behind his back, until, at length. the poor dominie could‘ stand it no longer. Meeting him one day at the: Post Ofﬁce, where a large crowd was collected, as usual the crotch commenced his abuse. The do-1 minie, as he was leaving the room, made some re mark, to which the dissevered member responded, “ 'l‘hat'sa d—n lie i" Quick as thought the do minie turned, divested himself of all unnecessary apparel, and step] ing up to his astonished enemy and seizing him by the throat, gave vent to his long-pent-up feelings as follows: o “ Don’t venture to repeat that word again, you poor, low, dirty stoundrel! I’ve stood this just about as long as Ipossihly can. I try to he a Christian. I have followed Christ in my weak way for nearly forty years. But I belong to a church that believes in falling from grace! And if you ever, in any way, insult or abuse me again, in word or deed, I shall, in all probability, fall from grace. And in do you'll get one of the allﬁredest thrash ings you ever had in your life.

BAKER ON THE Mo: xixo or HIS Dram. -——Captein Mackie, between two and three o‘clock on Monday morning, carried him verbally Gen. Stone’s orders in reference to moving his brigade. He found Col. Baker in bed, and was detained in conversation with him for half anhour. The Col onel was cheerful and hopeful, and conversed about the future and his participation in its affairs without a single shadow of doubt or anxiety. ‘Among other interesting incidents of the conver4 sation, it may be mentioned that. Captain Mackie expressed his admiration of the repiment ofPhil adelphia Fire Zouaves, which he had seen fre’ quently on parade, and his belief that they would i ' 5 oh ' ' he Were ut in front “We‘ﬁﬁr—twp r...“ all my men will do their duty, Captain, but I owe it to my Californians to give them the ﬁrst whence, and I shall lead them into battle."——Some hours later, after the dispositions for the engagement had all been made, Colonel Baker with his staff visited General Stone, at his position on the hill above Edward’s Ferry. They had a private con— versation together, General Stone explaining to him the important dispositions on the Virginia side. As Colonel Baker left Gen. Stone, in pas sing Capt, Mackie. who was standing near, he drew off his glove, and shaking hands with great warmth and seeming happiness, said : “Well, Captain, we are going at it at last, and we will give a good account of ourselves." The reply was: “ Good luck, and safe return, General,” to which he laughingly replied. “All will be right}, and galloped off. A little after 4 o'clock Colonel Baker was shot apparently in the chest or stom ach. He was standing in advance of his left, in deavoring to rally a company of Pennsylvania skirmishers. He fell heavily forward, but imme diately raised himself upon his hands and knees, and afterward, with an effort to his feet. He stood erect only for an instant. and, without utter ing a word, fell again motionless. it is probable that he received another shot at the moment of rising.
