THE MILLS OF 60D.
BT A. J. H. DCOAHyK.
Die Muehlen OotUs mahltn schrfcin."
Those mills of God ! those tireless mills I
I hear their ceaseless thiobs and thrills;
I see their dreadful stones go round,
And all the realsis beneath them ground;
And lives of men, nd soals of States,
Flung out, like chaff, beyond their gatefc
And we, O, Lord, Trith impious will,
Have made these nbgboes turn Thy mill I
Their human limbs with chains we bound,
And bade them whirl Thy mill-stones round ;
With branded brow and fettered wrist,
We bade them grind this Nation's grist!
And so, like Samson blind and bound
Our Nation's grist this Negro ground ;
And all the strength of Freedom's toil,
And all the fruits of Freedom's sod,
And all her hopes, and all her trust,
From Slavery's gates were lung, like dust!
With servile souls this mill we fed,
That ground the grain for Slavery's bread:
With cringing men, and grovelling deeds,
We dwarfed our land to Slavery's needs;
Till nil the scornful nations hiss'd,
To see us ground with Slavery's grist.
The mill grinds on ! From Slavery's plain,
We reap great crops of blood-red grain;
And still the Negroe's strength we urge,
With Slavery's gyve and Slavery's scourge ;
And still we crave on Freedom's sod
That slaves shall turn the mills of God !
The mill grinds on ! God lets it grind !
We sow the seed the sheave s we bind ;
The mill-stones whirl as wk ordain:
Our chu-pekn's bread shall test the grub !
While Samson still in chains we bind,
The mill grinds on ! God lets it grind !
I wait watching and weary, I wait ;
You wander from the way !
My heart lies open, however late !
However you delay !
I wait watching and weary, I wait;
But day must dawn at last !
Together, beyond the reach of fate,
Love shall redeem my past.
I wait ah! forever I can wait;
Forever ? I am brave ;
Time cannot fathom a love so great
It waits beyond the grave !
Good News fox the Ladt. A lady and
gentleman recently married, in the neigh
borhood of Boston, left home in their own
carnage lor a bridal tour among the
monntains of New Hampshire. In order
to aroid the curiosity attracted by persons
in the honeymoon, the gentlenan gave his
Irish servant the strictest charge not to tell
any oue on the road thry were newly mar
ried, and threatening to dismiss hira in
stantly if he did. Pat promised implicit
obedience ; but on leaving the first ian on
the road, aext morning, the happy eoaple
were much astonished and annoyed to find
the servants all assembled, and, pointing
to the gentleman, mysteriously exclaim
ior: ".That's him; that's the man."
On reaching the aext station, the indig
nant master told Murphy he must imme
diately discharge him, as he had divulged
what he impressed on him. as a secret.
Plaze your honor,' said Pat, " what is
it you eom plain of?"

A Southern View of the Rebellion.
A letter of a prominent Southern gen
tleman to his wife, who is in a distant
country, was recently found on board of a
vessel that was captured by our cruisers.
It is of recent date, and is written in all
the sincerity and unrpservedness of mutual
confidence. The writer tgives his view of
the war he is aiding as follows:
" This accursed attempt of one section
to set up an independent government,
must sooner or later fail, and fail igno.
miniously. 1 am bound in duty to share
in the burdens, and to do what I may to
alleviate the. sufferings which-the attempt
has brought upon those aninn whom
I was born, but.I will take no ce in it;
the highest would be no indue-jnt ; nor
will I share in the terrible responsibility.
No words can depict the horrors which I
witnessed both at Richmond and upon my
journey there and back. The death then
occurring at Richmond were fully equal
to one hundred and fifty a day? More
than .seventeen thousand sick c and wound
ed are now in the Richmond hospitals.
The recent seeming success of our arms
will only serve to accelerate the downfall
of our short-lived Confederacy."
The Anniversary Op the Constitu
tion L.ET It be Commemorated.
Says the Mo. Democrat : On the 17th
dav of September 1787, the Constitution
of the United States was adopted in the
Convention over which George "Washing
ton presided, and of which such patriots
as Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Frank
lin, James Madison and the Pinckneys
were members. Seventy-five years are
about to close since that day, and the na
tion that has lived undor that Constitution
in liberty and peace is waging a mighty
war with Americans in arms against the
glorious work of their fathers.
At such a lime, and in the midst of such
scenes, the Anniversary of ths Constitu
tion should be remembered, honored and
commemorated throughout the loyal
States, and in the armies and navy of the
Union. We have few enough anniversa
ries of patriotism ; let us now add one, to
be observed as long as the Constitution
stands. "What say the people? Shall it
not bo done ?
The following from So!. Miller's wit
and wisdom column " and " answers to
correspondents," hits off the New York
Ledger style exactly :
The sweetest duty of a loyal citizen, is
the duty on sugar.

The word fl Convention," is derived
from Convent. A Convent is an institu
tion where females take the veil ; and a
Convention is a place where they draw a
blind over the eves of the people. The
only difference is, in Convents the article
is silk, while in Conventions it is wool.
Mas. Partington on Goot. " As to
being inflicted with gout," said Mrs. Part
ington, looking very wisely as she stirred
her tea, " high living doesn't always bring
it on, depend upon it, though it generally
dees sometimes. It is incoherent in come
families, and is handed down from father
to ton, Mr. Hammer, poor soul, who has
been so long ill with it, inherits it
from hia wife's grandfather."

What is Conscience? Wendell Phil
lips, in his eulogy on Theodore Parker,
The very last page those busy fingers
ever wrote, tells the child's story, than
which, he said, no event in my life has
made so deep and lasting impression on
me. A little boy in petticoats, in my
fourth year, my father sent me from the
field home. A spotted tortois?, in shallow
water at the foot of a rhodora, caught
my wgm, ana j. mtea my stick to strike it,
when a voice within said it was wrong. I
oiuuu wuu ni.ea sncjc, in wonder at the
new emotion, till tortoise and rhodora
vanished from my sight. I hastened home,
and asked my mother what it was that told
me that it was wrong. Wiping a tear
with her apron, and taking m ; i,n
arms, she said, Some men call it con
, , ... ,. tl
science, but I prefer to call it the voice of
God in the soul of man. If you listen to
it and obey it, then it will speak clearer,
and always guide yon right. But if you
turn a deaf ear or disobey it, then it will
fade out little by little, and leave you in
the dark and without a guide." '
Have yon ever watched an icicle as it
formed ? You noticed how it froze one drop
ac a nme, unui ic was a toot long or more.
If the water was clean, the icicle remain
ed clear, and sparkled in the sun ; but if
tne water was but slightly muddy, the
icicle jooked foul, and its beauty was snoil-
ed. Juat so our characters are formin".
One little thought or feeling at a time adds
its influence. If every thought be pure
and right, the soul will bo lovely, and will
sparkle with happiness; but if impure
and wrong, there will always be wretched

A Good Hit. In Dutiy's Tremont news
room, Chicago, is disp'ayed a sign which
might be advantageously posted in the
houses of very many subscribers who pay
for newspapers that others may read them.

hung over the space inclosed in brackets:
