It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a m.uden lived whom you may Lhow
By the name of Annabel Lee ;
And this mniden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me. 1 -
I -was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea ;
But w cld ed with a love that wras more than love,
I and my Annabel Lee
With a love that the 'winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, lone ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee ; ,
So that her high-born kins-man came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not so happy in Heaven,
"Went envying her and me.
Yes ! that was the reason (as all men know)
In this kingdom by the sea,
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling nnd killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we,
Of many far wiser than we; '
And neither the angels in Hea en above,
Nor the demons down under the sea, '
Can cer dissever my soul from the s"oul
Of the beautiful. Annabel Lee.
ovthe moon never beams without "bringing'mc
Of the beautiful Annibel Lee, dreams
And the stars never shine but I feel the bright
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee. eyes
And so all the night-tide Hie down by the side
Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride,
In her sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

The Prixate asd the Snob. On the
Antietam campaign of 1862, Gen. Gordon
commanded our brigade. Now the Gen
eral was a strict disciplinarian, who would
never have any words with a private ; and
hence a joke. While on the march one
of the 307th got ahead of 'the brigade,
when the General halted him 'and ordered
him back. The soldier stopped, turned
around, stared at General & with a bold
saucy look, and replied : "
"Who are yon?'-

Third Briffde." .1 .

Blockade Runner CaptHred.
A correspondent of thei New Bedford
Standard gives the following spirited ac
count ot the capture of blockade runners
in "Brazos river, by the United Stales
steamer Penobscott :
The Brazos river, -about forty miles from
Galveston, i9" a fine river when once ln
side4 but with a shoal bar. We have lately
made it the scene of one. of the most suc
cessful exploits in destroying and captur
ing blocka'de runners.
The Penobscot, relieved from Galveston
station in the latter part of last summer,
was ordered to watch the entrance to the
river. On our arrival there, we saw sev
eral schooners inside, protected by a strong
battery, out though we Tcept vigilant watch
day and night we could discovered nothing
But at last our patience was rewarded.
On the 18th of February, two vessels
were discovered endeavoring to get in.
We were quickly in chase. The first one
we drove on shore, and she soon became a
wreck. She was a fine schooner, loaded
with powder, arms, medicine, &c. We put
a priz1 ere ft on board and took possession.
That night came on a 'norther a fresh
gale with rain and fog. The pext day the
storm still continued, and we lay hid in a
dense fog. At noon it suddenly cleared,
when to our surprise we discovered a fleet
of eight esse'ls under hpadway, coming
over the Brazos1 bar. The men had just
gone to dinner, but they come tumbling up
the hatchway, and the capstan ran around
as it never aid before. We were quickly
under way, and the chase began. Great
clouds of black smoke rolled from the
smoke-stack. In less time than I can
write it, we,were at the river bar, and two
schooners with full loads of cotton, driven
on the sands and ddshed by the breakers,
became shatted wrecks. The long guns
of the rebel batteries poured forth a ter
rible stream 6f fire. Hurling defiance,
our eleven-inch thunders Jback."" But we
cannot slop to fight,andsOr.while the rebels
chafe with impotent rager we sped on, for
doomed vessels. .
A shell bring3 the Dearest one too, and
while a prize crew takes charge of her we
steer for tfie other, the only one remain
ing that got outbide. The tenth shell
stops her, and we soon have her in tow.
We let them lie off the river with us that
nijjht for the rebs to look at. and. the next
nithgii tnree prizes started tor iew Ur
and They are all tied up here now.

the minds of a whole family. t Where it

more valuable than gold : it captivates

cable Proposition of the JRebels.
, The Richmond Whig, discussing vari
ous plans for annoying the Yankees, sug
gests that it would be a good thing to burn
their principal cities. Was malice ever
more desperate or more impotent than that
of thase beaten rebels? Nothing seems to
be left of their snaky nature but the hiss :
"We may not, it is true, be able to S6nd
a raiding party to dash iuto Pliladelphia or
New York to do the work; nor have we
artillery that will carry Greek fire far
enough to reach them but we have that
which will go farther than horsemen can
ride, and will penetrate what the mighti

should be thought unsafe to use them,
there are daring men in.Canada, of Mor
gan's and other commands, who have es
caped from Yankee dungeons, and who
would rejoice at an opportunity of doing
something that would make all Yankee

The GorFE-ToT Remedy. Everybody
ought to know that in cases of difficult
bieailiingand pains in the chest, so corn
in pneumonia aud lung fevers, relief may
be had as follows : Put a handful of mul
Jen and as much of bitter herbs such as
horirbound, hops, or wormwood into a
coffee pot j add half a pint of vinegar,
and three pints of boiling water; place il
over the fire a few miuutes, then shake
well, and let the patient gently and very
gradualfy inhale the steam from the spout
of the coffee pot. Care mut be taken
against exposure to cold immediately af
terward. The above I have known as a sure re
lief for more than twenty years, and have
within the last twenty-four hours, witness
ed its great value in an extreme case of
lung fever. The patient say3 ''eve'rybody
ought to know it." No good physician ob
jects to it.

' ' Jeff Davis' New Currency. The
Knoxville, Atlanta Register, of Mtrrch 13,
gives an interesting example of cause and
effect. It says ; "The new paper mill is
already at work, and on the 1st of April
Mr. Memrainger will flood the country
with millions more or les3 of the hand
some bills of tho new currency." It is
estimated that tho limit of the new legal
tender currency will be about S490,000.000
while there are not SI 0,000,000 specie in
all Dixie,as a basis : and this is chiefly se
creted by private parties; not a tenth of it
could be reached by the rebel government
by the most rigid search. Hence if the
tfew is-ues have any valua, it must be such
iis "good faith" will give them. The re
cent repudiation of $700,000,000 of the
old currency will, not, one would think,
tend to magnify faith in the new.
McDougal, of California, and Richard
son, of Illinois, are the only habitual
drunkards of the Senate. McDougal is
harmless in his cups. He goes out horse
back riding, falls into the gutter, and the
smrll boys rally around him and have a
little fun at his expense. He seldom troub
les the Senate Cbamben with his presence.
Richardson, however, is disgusting in his
bacchanalian revelries always obtrudes
.himself upon the Senate wrhen scarcely
able to stand erect always, 'unfortunately
for himself and for his State, in his seat, to
be pointed at from the galleries, and to
have his name given in reply to the oft repeated-question,
"Who is that drunken fel
