Bide yet awhile. 0 gentle, gift. d Muse,
And thro' these lines a tender love infuse.
I ask of thee a tribute, brief and true.
Entwin'd with willow, cypress leaves and yew.
—O'er Valley paths dim shadows mutely rest,
Appealing eyes betray the vain less quest:
For he is dead ! a Father and a Triend—
In dreamless sleep his days have Pound an end.
A slumbrous silence all unbroken dwells
And, more than words, an anguish'd storytells.
The deep fruition of those lanrelM years
Is drown’d in Sorrow's unavailing tears.
No kindlier heart than that which now is still’d,
Its wealth ot love all human measure fill'd.
That radiant smile diffus'd its cheery trlow,
While yet his steps grew tottering and slow.
Mature manhood knew his wisdom grave.
Youth sought his counsel—prudent, still, vet
And childhood cluster'd 'round the patient
To list, enrapt, to fancies, droll and free.
9 # • * *
There lingers on the air a hearted erv :
The cry of Hope, imprison'd—loth to die.
It seems to say to hint wo knew so well:
“ Ah! cruel parting. —Father! Friend, fare
well !

Last Sunday the work of moving thehigli
bridge of the Shenandoah Valley Railroad
which spans the Potomac at Shepberdatown
into a mathematically correct position was
accomplished. For some cause—perhaps
the settling of the piers—the bridge was
thrown out of plumb six and a half inches,
down stream, and the difficult and skillful
work necessary to move it back into its
...;,.in<il Ttmitinn was done in about five
hour*. Powerful hydraulic jacks were placed
under the bridge, one side being raised
higher than the other so that it would slide,
and then heavy strokes with mauls were
given, throwing the bridge into pot-ition.
When it is known that this bridge is over 1,
000 feet in length and nearly 100 feet high,
the difficulty of the work may be imagined.

Congressman IVllson Tells why he
1'otcd for Carlisle.
The Correspondent of the Register says:
Talking over Congressman Wilson’s sup
port of Carlisle with Mr. Wilson, that gen
tleman told me his first inclinations were to
vote for Randall and that it the election had
come off some weeks since he should proba
bly have voted for the Pennsylvanian with
w hom he sustained pleasant social relations
ami for whom hp professed a goml deal of
admiration. As the period of final decision
drew near, however, an examination ot tho
records of the two leading candidates for
the Speakership convinced him that Mr.
Carlisle’s record and position were more in »
accord with the true principles ami policy
of Democracy than those of Mr. Randall,
and for this reason he felt constrained to
vote for the Kentuckian against the advice
and solicitation ofagood many ncraonaland
political friends. “ A vote for Mr. Randall
as the matter was finally presented, ’ said
Mr. Wilson, “ it seems to me would have
been a mere dodge. It would have
represented the views of those who insist
that the Democracy shall do nothing until
it comes into power ami that all these ques
tios that affect onr best interest, shall bo
deferred until we get possession of the (lov
ernment. Such a programme docs not strike
mo as being either right or politic. With it wo
should go into the Presidential tight with
tho charge against us that the first tiling wo
were likely to do if successful would bo to
remove all protection from home industries
and thus destroy a good many business in
terests. I had sufficient confidence in Mr.
Carlisle's position on the tariffquestion, and
in that of a majority of his supporters, to be
lieve that this session of a Democratic Houso
would effectually answer all such charges
and demonstrate that the Democracy were
as lit to be trusted to care for tho business
interests of the country as their Republican
brothers. Mr. Carlisle stands squarely upon
the Ohio platform, which advocates a tarifi
for revenue, with incidental protection.

government expenses must always be sufii
cient to afford llie opportunity for protecting
such interests as need to bo protected it a
wise discrimination is used. It might be a
fairer way to collect such revenue direct
from the people, but it is not likely it will
ever lie collected by direct taxation. So
long as it is gathered as it is there will bo
the opportunity to care for interests that
nre l protection, and there ought to be mu
tual concessions to this end. Take our sit
uation in West Virginia, for instance. Wo
are an agricultural and pastoral people in
the interior, but we have iron and coal and
salt interests in various sections of tho
State that need to be eared for, and there
ought to be a feeling of compromise and a
greement in this matter between different
portions and varied pursuits. The general
average oftari 11 duties is about forty-three per
cent. That on coal is not over twenty-five per
cent., and other West Virginia products
even less. With a wise discrimination in
levying the duties needed for national rev
enues it is possible the protection to the
industries of West Virginia which need
protection may be increased. In any c
vent I do not expect that my tariff record
f in Congress will end with my vote lor
Speaker, and I hope to bo of service in
fostering interests which ought to be re
garded in framing revenue laws.”
