John Howard Payne, the author of that touching and inmortul song, "muie, Sweet Ilueua," says the New York Weekly, was a most unfortunate man. An incident in his career fur nishei us with a remarkable dream. le wals not only poor in pocket, but a honeless wonderer. In convcrsation withi a frietnd he once gave expression to the tollowing bad recital : "How often," said lie, "have I been in the heart of Paris, Berlin and Lin. don, or some other city. and haird persons playing 'sweet IHtane,' with. out a shilling to buy the next nial, or a place to lay my head. Ile world has literally sung iny sn il ii every heart is flamiliar with its melo dy. Yet I have been a wanderer from my bo'.hood. My eutintry has turned me riathlb-.sly fron , fice and in m) old age I have to submit to humiliation for my bcad."' He had the most exact and beauti. ful expression of the hart emotions regarding home, and yet personally lie was a stranger to all its tender and loving lufluences. A wanderer and and Bomn3timeR a vagabond, he has moved the human heart to its very depths by his exquisite lines. Disgusted with his treatment in hisa own country, and till impelled by his disposition to roam, his only wi--h was to die in a foreign land, and to be buried by strangers, and sleep in obscurity. le obtained an appoint. ment as United States Cons.ul at Tunis, where he died. We now tuan to a period antece dent to the composition of his song. At times lie was greatly depressed, and seemed to feel most acutely his utter loneliness. One day a friend called to see hirtd, amid on entering aid : "Ihow 'are you io-daay, Payne ?" "Dowvn boarted enaough," was the re.ply ; "but last night Ilhad one of 1the 'ftost glorious visions In a dream, that ever muet mort al eye.'' "Alh, indeed, what was it ?" "Well, I will tell yon. I suppose you think it was ,a eone of vast wealtha,of a palace or soamething else of that kind that man's desires aire sot upon. It was niothinag of the sort. I .don't often hadve <ireamfl, -but, when:I do. tbey imapresn me greatly. In this dreanm I saw a home oif miost traseendent. rural peacefulness and beauty. 1a wvas all that poet aind painter could imnpgine. ,The land scape was composed of g'entle rolling hills and sweot, still streams. There were flowers and birds, eropa, flocks and herda. . Intho midst of all this, stood various habitations of men, wo. men and children, and I heard pleas. ant volces, laughter, music and son1g." "Truly a beatutiful picture of bu man domestic contentment," said the friend. "The llfellong Imagery of my brain," cripd the poet, of "llome, Sweet Homt? -Ala-I how my soul revealed in the picture I liut. graduial. Jy ,it. faded from mytaight, I was trans. fzed. f strained .my visIon to easob its outlines as they grew fainter and lairter ; but at lst it had faded entiro ly away. I then looked utp and saw a great olud gatheoring, which grew dark and terrible. "Ab I said 1 ; that cloud is signini. eant of my owrn lot. ".a E said these words, I saw trao.. ed upon it in .burninig letters, these words of the Almighty to another miserable man: "A fugitive and a vagabond abarlt thou beeon the earth I" "In terror, I recognized nmy doo, andc awoke to find it both a dreami and a sad reality." The~ unhappy inan buried his face It~in his hands, and for somne time semed ithe deepest misery.. S"A. very wonderful droam," said his Oompanioni ' Well, do you know what T intend to do I" said Payne, looking up : "Il tell you. I've been thinking a g reat deal over the matter, and I in tend to write a songealled, and about "Home, Sweet. Home." The picture of my dream shall be my inspiration for the task, and my lonely heart will give touchug pathos to my words." Not long after, the song of "Home, Sweet Home,',was given to the world by .ohn Hlowara Payne. The dream is more especially re-called by the closing verse : "An exile from home, pleasure draslos in vain. Ah I gire me my. lonely thatched cottage again, The birds singing sweetly, that came at niy call Give me them. and that peace of mind doat er Ihap all : Io*me, sweet, sweet Home! There's no p!ace like home. NOw Departure. The follcwing article from the Vicksburg Herald is the best reply we have ever read to Mr. Stephens long and prosy article on the amend ments : A fellow was arrested and lodged in jail. After spending a night in prison he concluded to send for a dis tinguished lawyer. The man of books came, and after hearing a full state ment of the case from his cliknt, snil ed sweetly and said : "Why my dear sir, there is no trouble in your case. They canut't put you in jail for that. The law and the Constitution are both against it I" The prisoner re sponded as follows : 1-I don't know anything about the Constitution and the laws. You say they can't put me in jail, but I'm d-d if I an't in jail right now !" Right there is the answer to Mr. Stephens, and the people who will not "depart.'' They say that the XIVth and XVth Amendment.s are Inullities, atid yet, under the XIVth Amendneut, Mr. Stephens could not be a constable, if every man in the Union were to vote for him, an.1 under the XV h A a-e.-iielit, ery negro an i.s a v..ter anud m1) br an office hitler.

A Philadelphia dispatch of the 6th inst., says: James Lyons, living on Christian street, was aroused in the night by a burglar in his room, who presented a pistol and threatened to. fire if an alarm was made. Lyons seized the pistol and a desperate struggle en suol, during which both parties rolled down two flights of stairs- into the street, Lyons eeping hold of the pis tel, which was finitily discharged, wounding Liyonsiu the foot. The po lice, arotised by the noise, captured the burglar. Lyons was seriously bruised, and two toes of his foot brok. en. Extient In Alken.

Com pliment from a ladicnI Source. The Cincinnqti Comuelcinl's Nash ville correspondent, (Re. . edtield,) 1 in'a late letter pays the "Traltoris" and ''rebols" cf the South the follow lowing colipljiol :. "The Southerp people loalhe a man who uses a public office to eu rich himself. Whatever may be their faults, - they are honest. The do not' worship - the almighty dollar to thoeextent of bartering. away. their honor for it. The old Soiuithern fire eati g Democrats we are taught weru wicked mOD, and wicked they were. about some things, but -did not use their ;offices to 'fill- itheirpockots They did not form rings to 'make money, or establish gift enterpriscs. This old-fashioned honesty this abhor rence of 6nything that looks like pros. tituting pdiblic office to privato 'jain, is as abhorrent to the Southerut pe'o. ple now as it ever was, and probably more, for they have been called upon since the -war to ha\-n considerable experience with that sort of t-hing, and to know it is not to lovo it, cs. pecially when it is done at their ex pense. For the pat six ye ats the 8,uthern States have been converted into an arena of robbery, presenting a spectacle of fraud aid corruption perhaps unexampled in the history of the world ; yet Southern-born men have had little to do with it. Your true Southerner, if he has SeLSO enough to get an olliee, has too much honor to steal. In all my experience as correspondent of the Commercial in the different S.uthern States, I have found the worst thieves, the most insatato tobbers to be Northern men. There has been more stolen in South Carolina, or in Louisiana, since the war, than in alltho Southern States put together, from the revolu tion to 1869.

One of the men-Adam Rudolph. leader of the band-was strung up to a tree and chocked to death. Anoth or of the musioiaus was also seized upon, and after .being knocked down was bayoneted. His recovery is doubtful." Now, if this had occurred in any Southern State, it would have been distorted into a horrible Ku Klux outrage, and if the offenders had been white men, the Radical newspapers, from Maine to California, would have gone into double-leaded spasmj; Grant would have proclaimed that a gigantic rebellion had broken out - martial law would have been pro. claimed, anld some of the guilty par ties 'probably lynched.
