- The lord's Day.
Fresh glides the brook and blows the gah ,,
Yet yonder halts the quiet mill!
The whirring wheel, the rushing sail,
How motionless and still!
Six days of to?, pfoor child of Cain,
Thy strength the slave qf want may be;
The seventh"" thy limbs escape thc chain
A God hath made them free!
Ah, tender was the Law that gave
This holy respite to the breast,
To breathe the gale, watch the wave,
, And know-thu wheel may rest!
But when th*> waves the gentlest glide
What image charms, to lift thine eyes?
Tho spire reflected on the tide
-Invites thee to the skies.
To teach the soul its nobler worth
This rest from mortal toil is given:
Go, snatch the brief reprieve from earth
And pass a ?. .cst to Heaven.
Tiiey tell thee in their drnamin* school,
Of Power from oki dominion hurled,
When rich and poor, with juster rule,
Shall share the altered world.
Alas', since time itself began.
That fabio,hath but fooled the hour;
Each age that ripens Power in Man,
But subjects mun to power.
Yet every day in seven, at least
One bright republic sicill be known;
Man's world awhile has surely ccaat,
"When dod proclaims his own.
Six days may Hank divide the poor,
() Dives, from thy banquet ball;
The seventh the Euther op"s the door,
And holds His feast, for all!
Delving-About Dead Men's Bones.
At its last session, the City Conned j
passed an ordinance requiring the hu- j
man remains in the old City Cemetery, i
on Arsenal street, to be removed to
the Quarantine burying ground, and 1
the land laid off in lots and sold. For j
several days past workmen have been j
enga ged in removing those bones, and j
transferring them to their new vesting i
place. Tite cemetery is about seven- j
teen acres in extent and is well filled
with graves. The removal *of these j
remains is a laborious task, and will '
require several weeks and a considera- !
bio number of laborers. The cemetery i
lias not been used for several years, j
and the graves are nearly all tdd, und :
but few coffins remain.
This grave-yard was extensively ?
used in the spring a .d summer of
18-10, when thc chub-rn raged in the;
city, and 6,000 persons were stricken :
dowe, by tho. pestilence. In those j
days-thc coffin makers grew rich, and !
the public administra;.??- amassed a I
fortune. Corpses multiplied so ra- I
pidly that lhere was no time for making j
wills, shrouding the bodies, or holding i
wakes over thfi dead. A. man would :
rise in the morning in perfect health,
and before night his remains would be ;
carried to the potter's field, without a ;
mourner to drop si tear upon IKS:
collin, or a friendly hand to m?irk the!
spot of his repose. Strangers who
died were tumbled into rude collins, '
with their clothes on, ?ind hurriedly
placed in thc ground in tho old city j
We understand that iii digging up '
some Of these old graves, the laborers
have found money enough to make j
the work interesting; not such vaina- '
ble treasures as were discovered in the
graves at Chiriqui, but still enough to
excito their cupidity. In one grave
the sum of 3500 in French gold coin
was dug up; it appeared to have been
sewed up in the collar ol' the owner's
coat? who doubtless had died of cho?
iera, and had been buried without
being undressed. In another grave,
$150 was unearthed and S120 m tin
other. Larger turns may be found,
and the laborers tire on the qui vice
for the precious metal. Greenbacks
were unknown in those cholera times,
and gold and silver were more plenti?
ful than at present. . /
Among the graves dug up was that
<5f Mrs. She i. an Trish actress, who
was kdied ten years ngo on* the stage
of the St. Louis Theatre, by the fall?
ing of a w..'j gb t from one of the beams
supporting the scenery. The play
was "Jack Sheppard;" Ben. DeBiu'
was playing Blueskin, and Mrs. Shea
was acting the part of Mrs. Sheppard.
The weight fell upon her head, frac?
turing her skull and killing her in?
stantly. She was buried in a metallic
coffin with a glass lace, and was in?
terred in her stage costume, with her
bracelets, breast-pin,'.?fcc., on her per?
son. On opening the grave, the re?
mains of Mrs. Shea were ffltind in a
good state of preserva tion. The work?
men examined her bracelets through
the glass, but did not open the coffin,
although it was reported among them
that the jewelry was worth over 85,000.
The fact is, however, that it is only
litage jewelry, and not worth tiver 810.
Mrs. Shea's relatives ure all bi Europe,
and ber remains have never been sent
for and probably never will.

* Thc people o? Christ Church Parish
hive petitioned the General oonimand
iug at Charleston to remove the uegro
troops from their parish.
Three Montis were .promenading, a
number of years ago, on the Boule?
vards of Paris. In the course of con?
versation, one of them remarked: ' |
"I should like to take a good Jun- j
cheon, if one could be obtained for
about ten francs."
"I would not care if it were even
cheaper," replied another of hw
"And ?I should like to take any- |
tiling which could be called a lunch," j
added thc last friend. ,
"\Yh#re can we get ten francs?"
asked the first speaker.
"Hold on!" exclaimed thc second
youngman: "I have un idea. Come
along wit* me."
And "they went together, to a nmsio
store, which they entered, led by the
friend who had "thc idea."
The young man stepped up to the
music dealer's desk and said, "Sir, we j
have come to offer you a new song.
The^vords are by*bis gentleman, the
music by the other, and I will siiig it
for you," and accordingly sat down
and performed.
"Well," said the publisher, after
having heard the music, "I confess
that tile song is very simple, but I will
take it for fifteen francs."'
The bargain was immediately closed,
and thc three friends enjoyed a good
But who were they'? Nobody but
Alfred,de Musset, tho poet. Hippolyte
Monpon, the .composer, ?ind Gilbert
Louis Dupresj the tenor of. tenors.
The name ol* the song was "L'Anda

francs to the publisher.
