?fly Old Wonna ami I.
We have crossed the bridge o'er tho middle
My old woman sad I,
Takingonr share ic th? calm ned the strife,
With the travelers passing by,
And though on our pathway the shadows
There's alight in the Western sky.
Some losses and crosses of course we'vo had,
My old woman and I;
But, bless you! we never found time to bo
And a very good reason why;
We were busy as bees, nod we wer n't so mad,
As to stop in our work to cry.
On our changeable road, as wo journeyed
My old woman and I,
he kindly companions we met in tho
Made our lives like a vision fly;
And, therefore, the few thnt imagined us
Scarcely cost us a single sigh.
The weak and the weary we've striven to
My old woman and I;
For we each of us thought that our duty,
Was to do as wo'd be dono by,
In the hope to exhibit a balance clear
When the reckoning day is nigh.
TUE BIOGRAPHY OF A SHILLING.
BY S. B.
"Alice bore up bravely for two years; at
the end of that time ber father's health be?
gan to fail, and before another anniversary
of that bitter parting, ho was laid in tho
village churchyard. Sweet girl, she wus
all alone now; and sho used to take me, ot
a part of me, from her bosom, where 1 hung
suspended by a ribbon, and with many tears
and kisses wonder when the adventure!
would return. Even my hurd hcuit o ft ci:
melted at sight of her grief. One day, how
ever, in the midst of ber sorrow, n straogei
arrived in tho village coach, and soon pro
eented himself nt the cottago door. Will:
ono cry, Alice lay fainting in his arms.
"It was indeed Robert returned-not
with great riches, but with tales of a sweei
little forest home, bright with tho sunshine
.nd redolent of flowers, only waiting tin
blessing of a fair presence to make it at
"At an early day tho village bells rani
out their merry chimes, and when Alice lef
' the church, she wore ou her Blender finge
a ring that only a wife may wear.
"Robert had me joined to my old friend
if I may so call my other half, and we, i
happy party, left for the new world.
"The good ship Severn held bravely 01
her way, her snowy sails filled with aus
pioious gales, until the hoped for haven wa
almost in sight; then a terrible storm arose
and the long rolling waves soon carried he
out of her course.
"For two dreadful days and nights sh
was tossed about at the mercy of the storm;
waters, her very timbers groaning like
thing of life in mortal agony. In tho ves
eel, fear and consternation sat on ever
face; passengers, who had never befor
been on the broad aud treacherous boson
of the mighty ocean, and sailors, who hm
never known any other cradle or lullub
than the rolling and roar of its billows, wer
alike powerless and terror-stricken, as thu
saw death hovering, with outspread wind?
over that wild waato of seething waters.
"On the third night, tho ship was drive
on the breakers off tho const of Georgia
and all night long tho minute guns boome
out over that boiling whirlpool of destt u(
tion, with no ear to hear, and no hand t
succor, save His, whoso ear is ever open t
the cry of distress, and who holds th
storms in the hollow of His hand. Just e
the grey dawn looked forth from the mist
East, the Severn went to pieces on th
Tocks, and every soul on board was launche
ont on tho bosom of that mightier sea, tb
eternity of Jehovah.
"That same morning, when tho sun ha
climbed high up in the blue heavens, un
was looking serenely down on tho wrcol
strewn shore, old Tom, a lineal desceudui
of Africa's dusky royalty, was engaged i
collecting the spars and beams of drif
wood that the receding tide had lett on ti:
i wide, low coast. Something that the bk
waters, in their turbulent play, turne
whitely to the snn at last caught Iiis ey
and approaching cautiously, he saw-whal
A woman's form, lying just within tho u
most touoh of old ocean's deadly clasp; tl
golden bair drifting out in the waving st
weed, the rigid features, beautiful in the
white purity, and the brcwu eyes, seule
with the awful signet of death, turne
straight upward to where the angels cl
always behold the unveiled face of tho Got
"With distended eyes and awe-strtu
face, old Tom slowly returned to his ca hil
and calling to his assistance somo of h
fellow-slaves, dug a lowly grave; in it tin
reverently laid the beautiful, unconscio
form, where it shall lie, with tb? billot
forever singing their sublime tnouotoi
above it, until the archangels trump sh:
olea ve the sea and land, and tho voice
tho Saviour shall again say to tho dea
.Como forth 1'
"Old Tom claimed me from the whi
bosom, and a plain gold ring from the sie
der finger, aa his perquisites. Had any o
been there to whom letters were not a rai
tery, be might have read a mournful lege"
in the bimplo words engraved in that lit
circlet of gold:
" 'Robert to Alice.'
"Again I was consigned to the silence
an old chest; for though old Tom's avar:
was too great to allow mo to reposo in t
quiet gravo of roy sweet young mistress, ;
he was too thoroughly superstitious ever io
touch 'dem tings dat 'longed to de ded
buckra ooman.' Bo thus I lay until he was
gathered to his fathers, and his son reigned
(in ths cabin) in his stead.
"After puasiug through many ad ven tores
in the pu rob ??o of tobacco and other essen?
tials of negro existence, I finally fell into
the sable hands of Maum Dinah. I lind
passed slyly into that receptacle one night,
when young Master Edward came home
rather late, and in a state of considerable
uncertainty on all points but one, which
was that no ono but Dinah must open the
door for him.
"About this time, tho bloody civil war of
18G1 broke out, nnd Dinah hearing tho
white people talking about tho scarcity of
specie, laid mo awuy, in the confident ex?
pectation of never seeing another pieco of
silver again whilo sho lived.
"Ono night, when tho moon was riding,
high and bright, in her broud, bluo path?
way, tho anxious fuco of old Dinah wus
secu peering into my gloomy abode.
" 'Yes; dar yon,' she said, taking me up.
*I wonder how long I'so gwino ter keep
you. Dey say Sherman's cumin' fur true,
an' I spec ho'uus gwino tor tako ebury cent
dis nigger's got. May be him kill ole Di?
nah, too. Good Lord! Wbnt times we'uns

Dinah ter scratch fur sheself; but do good
Massa 'bovo will seo ber tru, I reckiu. Dor
ain't no 'pendeuceter be putin do buckra
jis look at olo massa au' missus!'
"Thus soliloquizing, Dinah continued to
gather up her simple valuables.
" 'I tell yer, mou, 'Kiah mus' ludo dose
tings; Dcm Yankees can't git nm no how.
'Kiah!' raising her voice to bo beard by her
husband, who was dozing over tho nahes,
' 'Kiah, yer go rite off au' dig er bolo ter

Yankees don't lef iiuflio beb i no nm what

" 'Go wid HID,' said 'Kiah, sententiously.
'Freed il m niity good fur ole bones.*
" 'Hush, nigger, yon'so a foo),' retorted
Dinah. 'Yer tink I'mo gwino ter run In
do swamps niter dcm low-down Yankees
when I'sc always bin usen ter rich buckra'
You kin go cf yer wants ter, an' die wit
rumatiz 'foro yer gits ober inter Carliny
nobody kcers-I don't, 1 kin git n nnddci
"Whether it was the threat about 'a mid
der man,' or some lingering fears of rhen
mutism operating on 'Kiah's miud, In
quietly acquiesced in Dinah's views. Sooi
the bolo was du?, uud tho box containinj
mo and other little trinkets deposito
therein, Dinah muttering many pious ejaeu
lati?os ns she let us down, hoping, will
every other breath, that tho 'Good Mass
'bovo will seo mo tru.' Tho bolo wa
covered, straw scattered over tho surface
tho hen-coop set upon it, and then Dina1
was ready for tho Yankees. Sho did no
havo to wait long, for with tho first rays c
tho morning, struggling squads of soldier!
in bluo uniforms, wero seen entering th
plantation from different quarters, nu
gathering thick and fast, they swarmed int
the negro cabins, as well as into tho mor
pretentious house of tho planter.
"Dinah sat, a grim sentinel, in her cabi
door, and one after another passed her bj
until a brawny sou of tho West, confron
ing her, asked:
" 'I say, old woman, what havo you g<

others to rush in, and soou sho saw ever;

stirred up into ono mass of inextricab
confusion. Words failed tho poor old w

" 'That's so, aunty,' broko in a roti|

"Every now and then, we sent a dark

rode smilingly down tho principal street,

"I and Bill were in tho pioneer squad,
who routed the little handful of rebels that
feebly resisted our passage across tho river.
With music playing and banners flying, wo
paraded tho streets of Carolina's conquered
Capital. I had never seen a fairer city.
The angel of penco that had brooded over
her from her iufaucy had showered beauty
aud bloom nil around. In tho plenitude of
her riches nnd pleasures, she waa ns 'a city
set on n hill.' Thus, wo first saw her, with
the bright river laving her white feet, and
her golden hair floating in the sunlight.
" 'But, ah! wc saw another sight,
When tho drums beat at dead of night,
Commanding tires of death to light
Tho darkness of her scenery!'
"Ah! how can I describo that night of
terror? First, a little Heck of light, bert!
and there, that soon shot up into broad, red
flames. One! Two! Three! Four! How
f ist the fires break forth! They reach out
their long arms and tako house after bouse,
into their burning embrace. For almost a
mile, a wall of living lire, towering skyward,
sent up ita Haming breath into ?bo lurid
clouds of smoke, that hung redly above.
"Tho terror-stricken, insulted, homeless,
helpless people; thc screams of women; tho
cries of children; the inuto despair of white

thc frenzied flight of flocks of pigeons, ris?

a picture that never bad its counterpart out

AYER S CHERRY PECTORAL.
For Diseases of the Throat and Lungs, such as
Coughs, Colds, Whoojdug Cough, Bron?
chitis, As'lima and Consumption.
PROBABLY never before in the whole history of
medicine, has anything won so widely and HO
deeply upon tho confidence of mankind, as this
excellent remedy for pulmonary complaints.
Through a long sei ira of years, and among most
of the races of men, it has risen higher and higher
in their estimation, aa it has become better known.
ItH uniform character and power to cure tho vari?
ous affections of the lungs and throat, havo made
it known as a reliable protector against them.
While adapted to milder forms of disease and to
young children, it is at the same time tl.o most
effectual remedy that can bo given for incipient
consumption, and the dangerous affections ot tho
throat and lungs. As a provision against sudden
attacks of GltOUP, it should be kept ou hand in
cvory family; ami, indeed, as all are sometimes
subject to colds and coughs, all should bo provided
with this antidote for them.
Although settled CONSUMPTION is I bought
incurable, still great numbers of cuses where tho
diseaso teemed settled have been completely
cured, and the patient restored to sound health by
tho CHEEKY PECTORAL. ?So complete is its
mastery over tho disorders of tho lungs and
throat, that the most obstinate of them yield to it.
When nothing elso could reach them, under tho
CHERRY PECTORAL they subside and disappear.
SINGERS and PU1JL1C SPEAKEKS find great
protection from it.
ASTHMA is always relieved and often wholly
cured bv it.
BUO?CHITIS is generally curad by taking thc
CHEEKY PECTORAL in small and frequent dotes.
Ho generally aro its virtues known that wo need
not puldiah tho certificates of them here, or do
moro than assure tho public that its qualities aro
AYER'S AGUE CURE.
For Ftctr and Ague. Intermittent Fever. Chill
Firer. Remittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Fvrindicid
or llilwus Feccr, A.c., and indeed ail thc affections
which arise from malarious, marsh, or miasma?
As its namo implies, it does Curr, and does not
fail. Containing neither Arsenic, Quinine, Bis?
muth, /.inc, nor any other mineral or poisenous
substance whatever, it in nowise injures uny pa?
tient. The number and minnitanco of its cures in
the ague di tricts. are literally be J Olid account,
and we behove without a paralh I in tbo history of
Aguo medicine. Our pride is gratified by tho
acknowledgments we receive of the radical cures
effected ill obstinate eases, and where other reme?
dies had wholly failed.
Unucoi ?mated persons, either resident in, or
I raveling thiougn miasmatic lncslitios, will be I
piotected bv taking the AOUK CURE dailv.
For LIVER COMPLAINTS, arising from tor?
pidity of tb? Liver, it is an oxcollent rcnudy,
stimulating the Liver into healthy activity.
For Hiltons Disorders and Liver Complaints, it
is an excellent remedy, producing many truly re?
markable cures where other medicinen bad failed.
