TWENTY-FIVE YEARS MARRIED, The shell that once has learnedjto sing The sweet song of the sea, Never forgets the soughing notes Of that deep symphony; But ever from its winding throat The lingering music sighs, Soft as angel breath that bears Celestial harmonies. Thus through the spiral of the years, As voices breathe from shells, There come sweet notes of joy to day, From distant marriage bells— Sweet marriage bells, dear marriage bells, That touch a chord so live, It vibrates just as thrillingly, Through circles twenty-five. “The old is better,” bottled up, As might be precious tears ; The blushing heart-drops of the vine Draw flavor from the years ; And so to day you taste a cup, AS husband and as wife, Of eighteen hundred forty-nine. The wine of wedded life. It, too, grows richer as the years Their sweets into it pour; The flagon may hold less and less, Its worth is more and more. Oh, may this coil of wedded years Still wind and wind away Until this silver song becomes A golden roundelay. May this blest flagon ne’er be drained, This wine of life drank up, Until twenty-five years more It fills a golaen cup. BILL SMILEY AND THE WIDOW. “Wife,” said Ed Wilbur, one morning as he sat stirring his coffee with one hand and holding a plum cake with the other, and looked across the table into the bright eyes of hie little wife, “wouldn’t it be a good joke to get Bachelor Bill Smi ley to take Widow Watson to Rob inson’s show next week ?” “You can’t do it, Ed, hs would’nt ask her, he’s so awfully shy. Why, he came by here the other day when I was hanging out the clothes, and he looked over the fenoo and spoke, but when be saw me shake out a night gown he blushed and went away.” “I think I can manage it,” said Ed, bnt I’ll have to lie just a little. But then it would’nt do much barm un der the circumstances, for I know she likes him, and he dont dislike her ; but, as you say, ho is so shy. I’ll just go over to his place to bor row some bags of him, and if I dont bag him before I come back, then dont kiss me for a week, Nellie.” “So saying, Ed started, and while he is mowing the fields, we will take a look at Bill Smiley. He was rath er a good looking fellow, though his hair and whiskers showed some grey hairs, and he wore a set of ar tificial teeth. But every one said he was a good soul, and so he was. He had as good a hundred acre farm as any in Norwich, with a new house and everything comfortable, and it he wanted a wife, many a trirl would have jumped at the chance, like a rooster on a grasshopper. But Bill was so bashful—always was—and w’hen Susan Berry bottle, whom he was so sweet with, though he never said boo to her, got married to old Watson, he just drew in his head like a mud turtle into its shell, and there was no getting him out again, though it had been noticed that since Susan had become a widow he had paid more attention to hit clothes, and had been very regular in his attendance at the church the fair widow attended. But here comes Ed Wilbur. “Good morning Mr. Smiley.” “Good morning Mr. Wilbur, what’s the news your way ?” “Oh, nothing particular, that I know of,” said Ed, “only Old John Robinson’s show that everybody is talking about, and everybody and his girl is going to. I was over to old Sockriders last night, and I see his son Gus has got a new buggy, and was scrubbing up his harness, and he has got that white-faced colt of his as slick as a seal. I under stand that he thinks of taking widow Watson to the show. He’s been hanging around there a good deal of late, but I’d just cut him out, so I would. Susan is a nice little woman and deserves a better man than that young pup of a fellow ; though I would not blame her much either if she likes him, for she must be awful lonesome, and then she ha 9 to let her farm out on shares and it is not half worked, and no one else seems to have spunk to speak up to her. By jingo ! if I were a single man I’d show you a trick or two.” So saying, Ed borrowed some bags and started for home to tell Nellie whatiie had set in train. About five o’clock that evening they saw Bill go by with his horse and buggy on his way to the wid ow’s. He jogged along quietly, thinking of the old singiDg school days—and what a pretty girl Susan was then, and wondering inwardly if he would have the moral courage now to talk up to her, until at a dis tance of about a quarter ot a mile from her house he came to a bridge, over a large creek, and it so happen ed that just as he reached the mid dle of the bridge he gave a tremen dous sneeze and blew his teeth out of his mouth, and clear over the dashboard, and striking on the planks they rolled over the side of the bridge and dropped into the wa ter. Words cannot do justice to poor Bill or paint the expression of his face as he sat there, completely dumbfounded at that startling piece ot ill luck. Alter a while he step ped out of his buggy, aud getting down on his hands and knees look ed over into the water. Yes, there they were at the bot’om, with a crowd of little fishes rubbing their noses against them. liis beautiful teeth that had cost so much, and the show coming on and no time to get get another set, and the widow, and Sockrider. Well, he must try and get them somehow, and no time to lose, for some one might come along and ask him what he was fooling along there for. He had no notion of spoiling his good clothes by wad ing in with them on, and beside, if he did that he could not go to the widow’s that night, so he took along look up tho road to seo that no one was in sight, and then quickly un dressed himself, laying his clothes in the buggy to keep them clean. Then he ran down the bauk into the icy cold water. His teeth did not chatter in his bead, he only wished they could. Quietly he waded along so as not to stir up the mud, and when he got to the right spot he dropped under the water and came up with his teeth in his hand, and replaced them in his mouth. But hark ! What noise is that ? A wagon and a little dog barking with all his might, and his horse is starting. % “Whoa ! whoa ! you brute, stop 1” Bat stop he would not, but went oft* at a spanking pace with the unfortu nate baohelor after him and the little dog yelping after the bachelor. Bill was certainly in good running cos tame, bat though he strained every nerve he oould not touoh the buggy or reach the lines that were drag ding on the ground. After a while his plug hat shook off the seat, and the hind wheel weut over it, making it as flat as a pan cake. Bill snatched it as he ran, aud after jamming his fist into it, stuck it, all dirty and rumpled, on his head. And now he saw the widow’s house on the hill, and what, oh what will he do ! Then his eoat fell oat, he slipped it on, and them making a desperate plunge he clutched the back of the seat and scrambled in, and putting the buffalo robe over his legs, stuffed the other things be neath. Now the horse happened to be one that he had got of Squire Moore, and he got it of the widow ; and the animal took it into his head to stop at her gate, which Bill had no pow er to prevent, as he had not posses sion of the lines, besides he was too busy buttoning his coat up to his chin to think of doing much else. The widow heard the rattle of the wheels, looked out, and seeing that it was Smiley, and that he did not offer to get out, she went to the gate to see what he wanted, and there she stood chatting, with her white arms on the top ot the gate, and her face right towards him, while the cold ohills ran down his shirtless back clear to his bare feet beneath the boffalo robe, and the water from his hair and the dust on his hat had combined to make some nice little streams of mud that came trickling down his face. She asked him to come in. No, he was in a hurry, he said. Still he did not of fer to go. He did not like to ask her to pick up his reins for him, be cause he did not know what excuse to make for not doing it himself. Then be looked down the road back ot him, and saw a white-faced horse coming, and at once surmised it was that of Gus Sockrid:T. He resolv to do or die, and hurriedly told his errand. The widow would be de lighted to go, ol course she would. But would’ut he come in. Mo, he was in a hurry, he said, had to go on to Mr. Green’s place. “Oh,” sail the widow, “you’re going to Green’s, are you ? Why, I was just going there myself to get one of the girls to help me quilt some. Just wait a second while I get my bonnet and shawl, and I’ll ride with you.” And away she skipped. “Thunder and lightning 1” said Bill, “what a fix !” and he hastily clutched his pants from between his feet, and was preparing to wriggle into them, when a light wagon, drawn by a white-faced horse, driv ed by a boy, came along and stop ped beside him. The boy held up a pair of boots in one hand and a pair of socks in the other, and just as the widow reached the gate again, he said : “Here’s your boots and socks, Mr. Smiley, that you left on the bridge when you was in swimming.” “You are mistaken,” said Bill, ♦.hey are not mine.” “Why, said the boy, “ain’t you the man that had the race after the horse just now ?” “No sir, lam not. You had bet ter go about your business.” Bill sighed at the loss ot his Sunday boots, and turning to the widow said: “Just pick up the lines, will you, please, this brute of a horse'is forev er switching them out of my hand.” The widow complied, and thea he pulled one corner of the robe cau tiously down and she got in. “What a lovely evening,” she said, “and so warm I dont think we need the robe over us, do we ?” “Oh my!” said Bill earnestly, “you’ll fine it chilly ridiDg, and I wouldn’t have you catch cold for the world.” She seemed pleased at his tender care tor health, and contented her self with sticking one of her little feet out with a long silk neck-tie over the end of it. “What is this, Mr. Smiley, a neck tie?” “Yes,” said he, “I bought it the other day, and I must have left it in the buggy. Never mind it.” “But,” she said, “it was so care less,” and stooping over picked it up aud made a motion to stuff it in between them. Bill felt her hand going down, and making a dive after it clutched it in his own and held it fast. They had gone on quite a dis tance he .still holding her hand in his, and wondering what he should do when they got to Green’s, and she wondering why he did not say something nice to her as well as squeeze her hand, and why his coat was buttoned up so tight on 6uch a warm evening, and what made his hat and face so dirty, until they were going down a little hill and one of the traces came unhitched and they had to stop. “Oh, murder !” exclaimed Bill, ’’what next ?” “What is the matter, Mr. Smi ley !” said the widow, with a start which came near jerking the robe off his knees. “One of the traces is off.” “Well, why dont you get out and put it ou ?” “I can’t,” said Bill ; “I’ve got — that is, I havn’t got —oh dear, I’m so sick ! What shall Ido ?” “Why, Willie,” said she tenderly, “what is the matter ? Do tell me.” She gave his hand a little squeeze, and looked into his pale face. She thought ho was going to faint, so she got out her smelling bottle with her left hand, and pulling the stop ple out with her teeth, she stuck it to his nose. Bill was just taking in breath for a mighty sigh, aud the pugnent odor made him throw back his head 60 far that he lost his balance and went over the low backed buggy. The little woman gave a little scream as his bare feet went past tier head, and covering her face with her hands gave way to tears or smiles —it is hard to tell which. Bill was “right side up” in a mo ment and was leaning over the back of the seat humbly apologizing and explaining, when Ed Wilbur with his wife and baby drove up. Poor Bill felt that he would rather have been shot than have Ed Wilber catch him in such a scrape, hut there was no help tor it now, so he called Ed to him and whispered it in his ear. Ed was like to hurst with suppressed laughter, but he beckon ed to his wife to draw up, and alter saying something to her, be helped the widow out of Bill’s buggy into his own, and the two women went on, leaving the men behind. Bill lost no time in arranging his toilet as well as he could, and then with great persuasion Ed got Bill to go homo with him, and hunting up slippers and socks, and getting him washed and combed, hpd him quite presentable when the ladies arrived. I need not tell how the story was all wormed out of bashful Bill, and how they all laughed as they sat around the tea table that night, but will oon olude by saying that they went to the show together, and Bill has no fear of Gub Sockrider now. ] Established July 1850. REFORM IN MISSOURI. Davenport Gazette. A few years ago the Republicans were in power in Missouri, but the notion got into the heads ot some of them that it would be nice and liber al to let in the disfranchised rebels. So a side show was inagurated, to which Schurz attached himself, com posed of Democrats and Republi cans, which carried the State. That was the last of Republican suprema cy 'n Missouri. The rebels got their “rights” and uniting with the Demo crats and such Republicans as wanted to be on the winning side, took control of what became the Democratic party. Since that time the way they have “reformed” things has been curious. They have made Missouri almost as safe for robbers and cut throats as Arkansas. Bourbonism has had full sway. As this was more than the “reformers” bargained for, they have been grow ing uneasy, and a “People’s Move ment” is now in progress, to bring about a change. The plan is, to hold a “People’s Convention,” composed of Republicans, and Reform Demo crats, while the Republicans as a party, shall omit to take any action. This is the same game the Demo crats are playing in lowa, only the parties are reserved. We have doubts whether as many votes can be taken from the Bour bons of Missouri as the Republicans will lose by non-action. The Repub lican party is not composed of ma terial that amalgamates easily. But it may be different in Missouri, and there is certainly need enough of reform. The Republicans lost the State by amalgamating, and perhaps they can win it back it the same way. The story of the man who scratched out both his eyes by jumping into a bramble bush, and scratched them back by jumping in again, is applicable in this case, and the fact should not be overlooked that he was accounted “wondrous wise.” The Republicans who are in the People’s Movement can take heart from this circumstance. From Knoxville Journal. A good story is told of E. N. Gates, Anti-Monop nominee for Con gress in this district, and is vouched for as true, by men in this place who lived in his neighborhood and knew him well at the time of the occur rence. About twenty-five years ago, when he did not aspire to greatness, he was employed as an attorney in a small case before a justice of the Peace at Orange, Ohio. Jim Stew art, an old man, and a lawyer of some renown, then living at Mans field, appeared on the opposite side in the case. Gates had made his speech,| and Stewart had the floor in reply. He waa too much for Gates in argument, and had the sym pathies ot the audience. Gates saw that the case must be decided against him, and undertook to break the force of Stewart’s argument by interrupting his speech. He had jumped up a number of times, and with Stewart’s consent had been allowed by the Justice to speak, al though out of order. Stewart bore this for some time very good-natur edly, being disposed to let Gatts have his own way and let himself down as easily as possible. Finally he notified Gates that he would not give way for any further irrelevant interruptions. Again Gates jumped up with some petty quibble and pro ceeded to harrangue the court. Stewart did not object, but quietly filled his mouth wilh tobacco, and when it was well chewed into pulp he dumped the enormous quid into his hand, rolled it between his palms into a ball and hurled it with a thud and a splash into the face of Gates with the remark, “sit down.” Gates took his seat, and was not heard again until the case was decided against him. To this day his face assumes a deeper red when the sub ject is mentioned. lie has never forgiven Stewart. A Fish Story. The curious fate of a fish oaughtin the Sassafras river, in Kent county, Maryland, is thus related by a cor respondent : A fish-hawk stole a very tine pickerel from the seine of some fisherman, when an eagle who had been watching the operation gave chase, and compelled the hawk to drop his prey. This was seized at once by the eagle and approbria ted to his own use. William Shall cross, who resides there, had been looking on, and succeeded in fright ening oft* the eagle. As the fish was not injured, he took it home, intend ing it for supper. While the cook was looking another way the cat in her turn captured the pickerel, and began to devour it. Just then a hound belonging to the family came along, and concluded to assert his rights in the matter. He drove away the cat and ate the fish him self—which closes its history. And this is a true fish story. Dont “Wait For the Wagon.” The old Democratic wagon was loaded with sin and iniquity—pro slavery, anti emancipation, opposi tion to all the amendments of our National Constitution, repudiation on the greenback question, and many other national sins, that would have made the pody politic sick nigh unto death, if they had not been re jected. They have many sympathi zers in the opposition to-day. But supposing that thE N. Gate(s) should tall out of this old wagon and empty even a part of this load upon this District, what a calamity. Let us avoid every appearance of evil, by voting for Judge Sampson.— l.lead Light. GATES SPEECH AT MOULTON. From Moulton Record. Never was there a weaker, more ridiculous and contemptable effort made by a candidate for Congress. It consisted alone of a sing-song charge of corruption and reckless ness, without the merit even of a hint of a remedy, save the sending of Gates to Congress. Should Gates make that speech in every school district in this District, the election of Judge SampEon will be assured by 4,000 majority. To our certain knowledge Gates made six votes for Sampson in the small audi ence that listened to him here. Good bye, Gates ; good bye Joe, dont stay long. An Effectual Cure for Cancer. From the American Volunteer. Take red oak bark, born it to ashes, and make lye ; then boil the lye till it gets as thick as molasses— spread it thin on a rag or piece of leather, and apply it to the sore for an hour and a half; then take it off, put another of the same on, which is to remain the same length of time, when a third is put ou, and also kept on an hour and a half. This will perform an effectual cure. Then take rosin, beeswax, and sheep's tal tow, and make a salve, which will heal the sore. This has never fail ed to cure the eating oaucer. Pub lished by J.

One long summer afternoon there came to Mr. Davidson’s the most curious specimen ot an old bachelor the world ever heard of. He was old, gray, wrinkled, odd. He hated old women, especially old maids and wasn’t afraid to say so. He and Aunt Patty had it hot whenever chance threw them together ; yet still he came, and it w..s noticed that Aunt Patty took unusual pains with her dresß whenever he was expeot- One day the contest waged unusu ally strong, and Aunt Patty left in disgust and went out into the garden. ‘That bear !” she-muttered to her <elf as she stooped to gather a flower which uitraoted her attention. ‘What did you run for?’ said a gruff voice behind her. ‘To get rid of you.* ‘You didn’t do it, did you ?’ ‘No, you are worse than a bur dock burr.’ ‘You won’t got rid of me, either,’ ‘I won’t, eh ?’ ‘Only in one way.’ ‘And that ?’ ‘Marry me.’ ‘\\ hat ! us two fools get married ! What would people say ?’ ‘That’s nothing to us. Come, say yes or no j I’m in a hurry.’ ‘Well, no, then.’ ‘Very well; good-bye, I shan’t come again.’ ‘Stop a bit—what a pucker you’re ‘Yes or no ?’ ‘I must consult—” ‘All right; I thought you were ot age. Good-bye.’ ‘Jabes Andrews, dont be a fool.— Come back, I say. Why, Ido be lieve the critter has taken me for earnest. Jabes Andrews, I’ll con sider.’ ‘I dont want any considering; I’m going. Becky Hastings is waiting lor me. I thought I’d give you the first chance, Patty. All right: Good-bye.” “Jabes! Jabes! That stuck up Becky Hastings shan’t have him.— Jabes, yes ! Do you hear—y -e-s !” A Swindler at the West. (Country Gentleman.) We have the following letter from Messrs. A. Ilostetter’s Sons, dated Mt. Carroll, 111., Aug. 3d : “Please confer a favor to ourselves and stock-breeders generally by cau tioning all, in your widely-oirculat ing paper, against trusting a man of this description : Medium height, rather sunburned, or of dark com plexion ; wore a rather heavy gray suit, Bomewhat faded, short sack coat and soft light-colored felt hat ; small dark eyes. Said his name (when at our place, in. May or June last) was Archibald Long, son of Archibald Long, of La Salle, 111., and a son in-law of Charles Lowder, of Indiana. We have lately had letters from J. C. Kelser, of Oregon, Wis., who said a man of above description, pretending to be one of the Hostetter Brothers, was at hia place and bor rowed ten dollars of him, and a letter to-day from Mr. Richard Wray, of Richmond, 111., who said a man, pretending to be one of A. Ilostet ter’s Son’s, bought gome cattle of him and decamped. He was at our place in May or June last, negotia ting for some Jerseys, borrowed a thread and needle of the ladies (as an excuse, I suppose, to get into the bed-room.) The same day Mr. Long, alias Hostetter, or any other name, was missing, and my brother’s pook et-book and our would-be Jerseyman. This man seems to be acquainted with Short-llorn breeders all over the country, and no doubt traveles extensively, so that there is no tell ing where he may turn up. We hope he has changed his cognomen ere this.” THE GRANGE HEAD-CENTER. From Moulton Headlight. If the prevalent stories afloat in the land are true, there is a main screw loose in the Grange headquar ters at Washington. It has been openly oharged that the whole agri cultural Department at Washington is “rotten,” and with so mnch show of truth that Congress at its last ses sion cut down the appropriation to it nearly one-half, and in the debate on the question tearful charges were made against leading men in thii Department. One Saunders, Presi dent of the National Grange, seems to be the brains of this Department, and is running things to the general disgust of people who know what he is at. One Kelly, the Secretary of the National Grange, two or three years ago was a poor clerk in one of the Departments. Now he drives a spanking team on Pennsylvania Av enue, with gold mounted harness, and other equipments to match. Why is this thus? It is said these men are paid largely for their confi dential recommendations by manu facturers. Will not this matter bear a little investigation ? Is the West to be forever humbugged by East ern demagogues and sharpers ? A member of the Saginaw county bar, was recently in one of our thriv ing interior towns on profession bus iness. In the office of the hotel he was accosted by a very agreeable gentleman, evidently of the genus drummer, who wanted to know “where he was from.” The legal gentleman not exactly relishing the stranger’s familiarity, answered short; “From Detroit.” The next question was, “For what house are you traveling ?” “For my own.” “Are you ! May I ask your name ?” “You may.” Pause—enjoyable to the lawyer, embarrassing to the oth er. “Well, what is your name?” “Jones.” “What line are you in ?” “I do not understand you.” “What are you selling ?” “Brains.” The drummer saw his opportunity, and looking at the other from head to foot, he said slowly, “Well, you appear to carry a deuced small line of samples.” Blackstone says he owes that drummer one. From Bellfontain (Ohio) Republican. “We had a three year’s acquain tance with Colonel Sampson in the service, and he is a man worthy of the hoticr bestowed upon him. He will be an “Honorable” in the true acceptance of the term ; and the boys of the 6th lowa would, to a man, be glad to favor “Old Sorrel” with their votes. The St. Louis Disprtch , says : “For the first time in torteen years the Democratic party is beginning to crawl out of the brush.” Exactly. It went into the brush at the out break of the war, and engaged in the business of furnishing bush whaok era to make war upon the nation's flag.
