I'EHIVfi In a rosewood cradle a baby lay ; ? Its mother was stitching, sticthing away On n little robe of white. One foot on tho rocker, she hoped to keep . Her frolicsome baby fast asleep, To finish her work that night. In every stitch of the garment she wrought That loving mother fastened a thought? H?pen for that little one? And smiled on her babe with a happy pride As it slept in its cradle by her side, "fill that little robe was done. Then ehe folded up the cambric and lace, And kissed her.little one's chubby face, That smiled in its infant glee. .She tossed it up and down in the air; How prell3 you'll look little babe, whoa you \#ar. That new little robe, said she. In a rosewood coffin the baby lay? Its mother had wept the night away, Watching its dying breath. With it clasped to her breast she prayed to keep Her darling btlby from going to sleep In the cold, cold arms of death. They buried the babe i:i the garment just wrought Whose every stitch held a hopeful though!? From that loving nmthcrVsight. On the marble stone she wrofc with a (car, ??How many hopp;? lie buried hero, In that little robcof white." In the Saviour's arms a baby lay, From its rosewood coffin far away. In I lie realms of love and light. The angels a garment had folded about Its idle form, which would never wear out ? A seamless robe of white. LITERARY. s k l e c r n - ''tfHE ' SECRET SIGN.' A SKETCH OF THE SOUTHK11N CAMPAIGNS. BY MltS. M. K. ItolllNSON. In a desolate, rugged valley, the American army were encamped for this winter. The dis tance from Philadelphia might be about twenty miles, inn north-westerly ?direction. The con ditio:! of the troops was lamentable in the ex treme; and the only wonder istbat they did not sink under their accumulated misfortunes. The winter was it most rigorous one ; they wore without .shoes, blankets, or provisions ; their course could be traced by the tracks of their bleeding feet, cruelly cut by the ice, while their only shelter from the cold and piercing blasts. ] were rude log huts, constructed to ncconnno- j date twelve men each, within which, upon the damp ground, was scattered straw for cir beds. It is indeed surprising that hope did not givo place to-despair; but the intense desire for liberty, and an unshakon belief in the just ness of their cause, enabled them to cheerfully endure hardship and privation. During this time the British had possession of'Philadelphia, and were rioting to excess; luxury and revelling were the order of the day, and the possessions of the brave men they were striving to subdue, wantonly appropriated to their use. while the rightful owners were st nig gling under the pressure of unequalled ?Uner ing for the love of country. Paper currency was almost worthless, and but little specie hying in circulation, farmers were disinclined to part with their produce. 1 and those indeed were fortunate who obtained a sufficient supply for their daily wants'. Man}' of the whig families wdio remained in the city were robbed by the British soldiery, who left them but little or nothing to subsist upon. The ladies, however, with cars ever open to the calls of charity, carried food from their own tables to tho American prisoners, and did all in their power to relieve the wants of the destitute. A few had friends without, the city, who watched every opportunity to send n basket of provisions or a little money to their suffering relatives. These juts of kind ness wore attended with considerable risk, and numerous arc the instances of Hie and liberty being hazarded for the sako of doing good. A farmer by the namo of Israel, who resided in Wilmington, had a mother remaining in Philadelphia. He feared her slender means wore exhausted, and resolved, in sonic manner, to aid her. "I cannot divest my mind of the idea that my mother needs assistance," he remarked, one morning to his wifo. ?'It is probable she does," she replied. "W have no reason to suppose that she has escaped the cowardly and brutal conduct of our com mos oncmtcsV' "I must visit her iu person," added the former, after a short pause. "My mother must not want for food when I am blessed with plenty." "It will be a dangerous journey," said Mrs. Israel, anxiously. "I am awaro of that, but I can afford to risk something, as well as others of my countrymen. Think of the suffering at "Valley Forge." "I cannot discourage you, but I have many fears for the result," replied the wife, as she remembered the rumors that each day brought to her oars. "You ennut pass iu the daytime," she added. "No, I must go in the night; darkness is the best security." "But you have not the countersign," said Mrs. Israel, quickly. "I can obtain it from one of cur tory neigh bors." "And wc must not overlook the fact that by that very circumstance, you will place yourself in Ws power," rejoined the wife. "Women arc always anticipating evil," con tinued the farmer, with a smile. Williams always has the pass-word, and you know we aronsgood friends as two men cau well be whose sentiments differ so widely." "lie's a wolf in sheep's clothing '." exclaimed Mrs. Israel, warmly. "A man that will desert the standard of Iiis country and league with its counties, is not to he trusted." "Wc must hope in One who sways the destinies of nations, and eventually rights the wronged," was the earnest rejoinder of the bravo, farmer, us he set about the needful pre parations. Mrs. Israel said no more; she was a patriotic .woman, hud though she felt some anxiety re specting the fate of her husband, she thought it .best "not to dishearten him by .unnecessary fears: As the fanner bad anticipated, be found i no difficulty in procuring the countersign from i the neighbor mentioned, who granted the re | quest without the least seeming reluctance. Israel reached the ferry without the oceur I ronee of anything worthy of note, and was al I JlowuuV fco..p4Mnvby> the "wutinel, upon repeating j the pass-word. Ho proceeded immediately to his mother's residence. I*poll entering, he was ' much surprised to find a younger brother there I upon the same business as himself; the latter belonged to the American arm}*,.and bad been prumptcd by filial affection to privately vi.->il his mother, who was ito'w left alone, with the \ exception of a black servant. ? The unexpected meeting was a joyous and opportune one; fur Israel soon discovered that his mother was really suffering for want of food and the customary comforts of life. While they were earnestly conversing together re specting the deplorable state of the country, the heavy tramp of horses and loud voices were heard at the door. The tvyo sous sprang up and unsheathed their swords, while the terrified mother could, barely articulate : "Save yourselves, my children ! it is the Hessian officer, who. with his tuen, conies and goes when he pleases. Von can escape by the roof." And seizing the one next her, which happened to be the youngest son. she fairly forced him up stairs and through an aperture in the roof. Meanwhile the knocking and uproar did not cease below, and Israel, followed by his mother, considered it the safest course to open the ; door. "Be calm, mother !" he whispered, as she wildly besought him to attempt an escape. "Show no fear, and act as though nothing un usual had occurred. Israel opened the door. In rushed the Hes sian officer and Iiis men. the former of whom instand) seized him, exclaiming: "Wc have caught the rebel !" "Voll are wrong." said tb> Lanier, with self-possession. "1 am all right; it must bo my brother whom you seek " I The officer looked at him intently, but did ii"f relax his grasp. "Judge for yourself," added Israel, seeing his incredulity, and the thought flashing across his mind that he had been mistaken for bis brother. ".Judge for yourself," he continue'. "1)6 1 look much like a soldier?" The Hessian sergeant looked at him still more attentively, and after a moment's pause, said : "You don't wear uniform, as 1 expected." "No, and here is a suit belonging to my brother, which he left. Von see it is much too . mail for me." And Israel put on the uniform, with much coolness of manner, and quite con vinced the officer that he had secured the wrong man. "I perceive you are a loyalist," said the laf tor, shaking Israel warmly by l-ho band, and pressing him to take a seat at the table which had been spread by the affectionate mother. Ho folt himself obliged to comply, ami indi cated to the. latter, by a significant glance to do tlio same. She obeyed, and forced herself to listen quietly to the coarse and brutal remarks of the unwelcome guest, who repeatedly boast - pd of his 8VCOC88 in dispatching "the cowardly \ ? ? r rebels," and in forcing the black to confess the facfc.pf his young master's presence at home. After he had protracted bis stay ' to what scoAred mi interminable length of time, he remarked that ho was on duty, and <juitted th?Mwelling, much to tho satisfaction of his hostess, Jarael congratulated himself on his fortu nate escape, and soon after took leave }bl bin mc^iW and brother. ] Te reached homo safely, but an hour afterward was arrested and made a p^gj?oncr. The words of bis wife had proved pro^kctic; L's tory neighbor had indeed given hiru;thc counter-sign, but he had also betrayed Tlie royal frigate Uoobuck was then lying in me.Deleware. directly opposite Iiis f;tni!. and.Israel and his wife's brother were in.-lautly coiSwyed on board, to be tried as np?-s. The fanner was one of the *;('onuuitf oe of Safety," and tliis fact being known. Iiis posi tiot&uidor'rhe eireumstanccs was a most dan gormfajmo. Much severity ayd hardship were uS(kfrep\vnrd him; his watch, a stnall sum of nioilpy, and even his clothes, were taken from hin?-.his bed consisted of coils of ropes on sacks, with not the slighest covering to protect hiunfroni the cold night air. Ijjfraol considered his case a hopeless one. and^quictly resigned himself to his expected fate.-; His tory neighbors gave evidence agaimt billign'nd repc atcd a remark which he remeni "rierffllObaving made, implying that he '-would sootier drive his cattle as a present to Celt.Mai Washington, than to receive thousands of dol larsfSjfcthem in British gold, to supply the royrtj ships of war." Tliis speech was full of treason, and speedily CACjadtho ire of the British commander of the ship. He ordered a file of soldiers to pro ceed/,to the meadow, drive, (lie cattle to the wafpr's edge, in full view of the prisoner, and slaughter them without hesitation. Ttipfann was at the distance of a mile from the UVCr, but as the ground from the meadow .^lopc^l'gradually down to the water, there was <ii(;>)Vm^ to obstruct the view, and Mrs. Israel "wtio'swa's~waTclit'iiI and anxious, saw every move ment. She observed the soldiers leave the ship, go on shore and proceed in the direction of the meadow, where the cattle were quietly grazing. Instantly divining their intention, she deter mined to save the cattle, if she risked her life in the attempt. Ordering a small boy to fol low her, she hurried to the spot, lowered Jhc bars, and attempted to drive them through the oper.ing. The soldiers shouted to her to desist, tineateuing to lire upon her if she did not. The undaunted women heeded them not, and they put the threat into execution. The shots did not harm, save to make almost wild the al ready allVighted brutes, who bounded in every direction across I be Held, while Mrs. israel, to the hazard of life and limb, succeeded in driv ing them into a yard adjoining the barn. Not daring to venture farther among the farm-houses, the disappointed assailants re turned to the ship, and related to the cltas grincd officer the failure of their mission. This incident happened, it should be remembered, in sight of the commander of the Roebuck and his two prisoners. Israel was treated much more rigorously than his companion ; daily was his situation becom ing more crit ieal, for the lime was last approach ing for his trial. He knew the character of his judges well, and expected no mercy at their hands. One night as he was roc lining up* n his hard bed, a friendly-looking sailor approached him. "1 wish to ask vou a question," lie said, in a low, but kind tone. ??! am a friend, and wish yon well, so you need nut fear' to answer me truthfully." Isral signified his willingness to do so. ??Are you a free-mason." resumed the sailor. ? I am," replied Israel, much astonished at the question. "Then there is some hope for yoii." added the sailor quickly. "To-morrow night there is a lodge held on ship-board, the officers who be long will assemble, ami in some way you may be able to alter their opinions respecting you. It is your last chance, for they will likely lind you guilty of being a spy." The countenance of Isrctil brightened up; he expressed his gratitude to the sailor in the warmest terms, and laid himself upon the coil of rope with a lighter hca. t. The next day he was bn light up for trial in lue form; bis tory neighbors were examined. ;. ul their depositions told fearfully against him. Contrary to the expectations of both, the pris oners were permitted to speak for themselves. Israel boldly but respect fully avowed (he truth; candidly acknowledged his visit to the city, yet denied going as a spy; but on the contrary to afford relief to a beloved and suffering mother. His earnest and eloquent words had no observa ble effect; the faces of his judges were stern and inflexible. Soon after, the farmer watched bis opportunity, and made, to the commanding officer, the sign of the seorel order to which he belonged. i The change in the deportment, of the officer was almost magical. The severity of his coun tctmnce relaxed, no manifested some confusion of manner, and presently communicated with his brother officers iu a suppressed tone. "Gentlemen," said the commander mildly, "it seems that wc have labored under some mis apprehension iu regard to the character of this person. Instead of coining among us as a spy, it was to bring relief to a parent in need. 1 do not think it advisable to proceed further with "the ease. Tn this opinion the others fully concurred, und Mr. Israel was acquit ted. This was not all; he was treated with the greatest hospitality by the British officers, loaded with gifts for him self and wife, and, as an additional mark of distinction, was sent on shore in an elegant barge. Kor this remarkable escape he was in debted to the teeret nii/n of the masonic brother hood. M I S C H Ii h A N Ii O U S . Danger of Delay. People sometimes object- that they cannot "ajf'to'd" to assure. Such an argument should rather teach a man the imperative necessity fur assuring at once. If Ac feel so much diffi culty in vfithdrawingsueh a trifle of his income, let him reflect on the frightful coiulition into which bis death would plunge his family. There are others who *-1 in trial" to assure, but postpone any assurance because they can not spare enough to cflcetit at once for 810,000 or 820,000. But why should they be too proud to send in an application for a. Thousand Dollar Policy, and not proud enough to rescue their family from soliciting of strangers the aid of a bundled cents '/ They should assure immedi ately for ?1000, or what they can afford; and there are few who do so one year who will not assure for double the amount iu the next: By such people it should be remembered that delay is never hiorc dangerous than in their case. Every year decreases the chance of being ac cepted. "When- the cold shiver runs through the. frame?when the quickened pulse, the fe vered tongue, the patchy completions, the short cough, and the hectic flush appear?it is too fate to rush to the assurance office yourself for a Life Policy. Imagine the situation of a man who. suffering under slow decline, feels bis en ergies daily failing, and his resources, at the same time, day by day decreasing. With the prospect of a speedy dissolution, he knows that ail who are dependent upon hhn?the victims of his neglect?must go forth to seek their br< ad amid the closed hands and stony hearts of the world. He will picture to Himself that which \vilj follow mi.his decease?which he has seen happen to others, and from which be can anticipate no iniuuity: the break-up of his home, his ? household gods" roughly handled by strangers, hi conduct harshly condemned by his friends, the love of his children failing before the rtulc shocks of poverty., and their respect, by continual and bitter suffering, dwindling il iwn to censures on his memory. It is an awful thing for u man .on bis death-bed to consider, that, ere his corpse grows cold, his widow may be haggling with the undertaker for the price of his coffin, and his family may hunger and thirst to' provide him a decent sepulture. tmmmmmmft^m mm ? wm??.?em???????

A certain fanner, who in the courso of the year purchased seventh! dollars worth of goods and always paid for them, called at a storo of a vil lage merchant, his regular place of dealing, with two dozen brooms, which bo offered for salcv The merchant, who, by the way, is fond of a good bargain, examined his stock, and said : "Well, Cyrus, I will give you a shilling a piece for those brooms." Cyrus sc;omed astonished at the offer,'" and' quickly replied: 'r**** "Oh, no, John'I can't begin to take that for 'em, no how; but I'll let you have 'em i foiV & twenty cents a piece, and no-/ a cent less." "Cyrus you are crazy," replied Jolin.. . "Why^Bcc here," showing a fine lot ol" brooms, " is an. article a great deal better than yours (which was true) which I am retailing at twelve and a half cents apiece" (which Was not true by seven mid half cent?.) "Don't c- ? for that," answered Cyrus; "your brooms are cheep enough, hut you can't have mine for less than twenty cents, auyhow j" .? k and pretending to be more than half angry,, shouldered his brooms and started for the door. ? ' ? ? The merchant, getting nervous over the l?s? of a good customer, and fearing thatiie might go to anotbc storcr and never return, saidv I ? "See here, Cyrus, hold on awhile, If I give you twenty cents for your brooms you will not object to take the price of them out iu goods ?" "No. I dou't care if do," rcylicd Cyrus. "Well, as you aro an old customer, I will allow you twenty cents apiece for this lot. Lei ' j me see, twenty-four times twenty make just foul-hundred and eighty cents. What kind of goods will you have Cyrus ?" ? . "Well now, John, I reckon it don't make any difference to you what sort of goods 1 tak?, t does it V "Oh no, not at all,?not at all," said- tub r merchant ? . "Well, then, as it don't make any difference, , I will take the amount in them brooms of yours at 12- cent apiece. Let me see, $4,80 will get 38 broom's and 10 cents over; don't make much difference, John about the 10 cents, but as you are a right clever fellow, I believe I'll take the change in terbaeker."' When Cyrus went out of the door with his brooms and "terbaeker" John was seized with a.serious breaking out at the mouth, during which time he was distinctly heard to violate;., the third commandment several t imes by the ?bystanders who all enjoyed the joke. ? * Which and t"Otiii:k.?"Old Fritz," who raised pigs and cabbago in Napa county, Cali fornia, appeared before Judge H?as a witness, says an exchange.

A worthy old farmer, residing iu tho vicini ty of Lake Mahopcck, was worried to death last summer by boarers. They . found fault with his table and Said he had nothing to eat. "Dang it," said old Isaac, one day, "what a' fuss you're making. I can eat anything. "Can you cat a crow V* said one of the boarders. "Yes, I ken eat a crow I" "Bet you a hat," said the guest. The bet was made, tho crow caught and and nicely roasted, but before serving up they contrived to season it with a good doso of Scotch snuff. Isaac nat, down to the crow, lie took a good bite, and began to chew away. "Yes, 1 ken cat crow ! (another bite, and an awful face.) I ken cat crow; but I'll bo darned if I hanker artcr it!" - ??U?
