TRUTH ANDFALSEHOOD. List to a tale well worth the ear Of all who wit and sense admire— Invented—it is very clear— Some ages prior to Mathew Trior. Falsehood and Truth “upon a time,” One day in June's delicious weather, ( Twas in a distant age and clime) Like sisters, took a walk together. On, on their merry way they took, Through fragrant wood and verdant mea dow. To w here a bench beside a brook Invited rest beneath its shadow. There, sitting in the pleasant shade, Upon the margin’s grassy matting. (A velvet cushion ready-made) The young companions fell to chatting. Now while in voluble discourse On this and that their tongues were run ning, As habit bids each speaks, perforce, The one is frank ; the other, cunning. Falsehood, at. length, impatient grown With scandals of her own creation, Said, “Since we two are quite alone, And nicely screened from observation. Suppose in this delightful rill, While all around is so propitious, Wre take a bath ?”—Said Truth, “I will— A bath, I’m sure, wilfbe delicious 1’’ At this, her robe she cast aside, And in the stream that ran before her, She plunged—like Ocean’s happy bride— As naked as her mother bore her! Falsehood at leisure now undressed, Tut off her limbs the robes that hamper, And having donned Truth's snowy vest, Kan off as fast as she could scamper! Since then the subtle maid, in sooth, Expert in lies and shrewd evasions, Has borne the honest name of Truth, And wears her clothes on all occasions. While Truth, disdaining to appear In Falsehood's petticont and boddicc. Still braves all eyes, from year to year, As naked as a marble goddess! —[John 0. J-'axe. From the Sentinel.] Home and Hearth. Homo, home, sweet home! How few fathers ever call to mind and dwell i upon, in the busy and continuous struggle with the cold, callous and un-: sympathising world without, how in-1 estimable happy it is for them to have a home—a shelter—a refuge from the fierce conflict, between man and man in tlie baffle of life ! How few properly value nml appreciate me joys amt mess ing.? which dwell in the happy little world of home, so unlike the other j world just, left at the gate, and over which they reign, wise and provident rulers! How few feel that the bless ings surrounding them arc blessings, or that the little joys, ever presented to them, are joys, or that the little w orld at home is different in all respects from the greater one w ithout ! Does the man of the world, returning to this minute world of his ow n. around whose portals none may intrude w ithout his consent, ever ponder and dwell upon j tho gracious blessings surrounding him. and weigh the responsibility Cod lias placed in his hands, of which ho must sooner or later render account ? Jlow few parents, alas! ever enter j their own homes appreciating the | blessings Cod has given them, and un derstanding themselves and their rela tionship to their own children! AY ho. among the thousands w ho buttle daily with a dishonest and over-exacting world, go home and enter its loving portals with that keen appreciation of, and admiration for, all that is pure and j innocent upon earth, which should till I the heart of the Cod-fenriug and thankful among Christians, brothers Of all earth's blessings for man, God luis given nothing so immeasurably dear, and so deserving of bis every good wish and provident desire, as Home—that republic over Which he is chosen monarch—that earthly heaven, of which he is king, ruler, father, all! The thousand alluring and disgust ing vices of the outside world—alas! too familiar too him it may be—are unknown to the darlings who arc growing up at home. The guilt and i shame of a rotten world have not yet | cast their baneful alluremcuts across the hearth around which bis own blood and flesh have multiplied to bless his name and cull him father. The little ones prattling around him as he sits quietly by the hearth, peer ing into the glowing coals whose lurid , fervency, like the lulling w ings of a seraph in a dream, have drawn his overtaxed brain into an abstracted and thoughtful revery, look up with tell tale eyes and peep into pap's face, to read the story of love or anger. Has papa ever thought how inexpressibly dear to these little pets is one kind word from him or an approving smile ? How few of us, alas! are competent to appreciate the blessings ol the dear little Haven at Home—the innocent w orld of love, when the great world without frowns upon and hunts down the drooping spirit within with relent less persecution 1 How few of us real ly appreciate the little world we have peopled with innocence, whose inquir ing eyes look upon the passing menag erie of the world without in a rosy at . mospherc and brilliant colorings. | How many of us can undcrstandingly • and enjoyablv appreciate that blessed ' I little world at home, which, at close of day, ill a loving circle greets papa at the hearth, and whose loving little hearts long for a kiss anil recognition ? Who, among ns all, will daro say that mamma—patient, forbearing, long-suf fering, tired mamma—the good wife and queen of hearts—is treated with the respectful consideration, love anil warmth of affection which her great, loving soul nsks as her share in the wealth of the home and hearth? Few of the world’s cold and callous hearted, but home and heaven-blest, dare say they are husbands and fathers as well as men in word and deed! Home, home, sweet home! In joy, in suffering, in affliction!—in all the trials and buffettings of life, within thy blessed portals only in all this vast world, may the spirit of man find wel come, and loving, true, and sincere greeting, and to thee and thine to-day offer we a libation of love and a word of recognition! Work Moderately, Do what you do, and take your time to it—but see that you improve your tjme—nud do not make any false blows or unnecessary motion. Such men are the workers. They enjoy tlicir labor ; they do not fret and hurt their health or their disposition. They have the control of their work and themselves. It is bad to fret—it is bad to get in a stew, which generally moans a passion. It is very line to have an even course and to be placid in your work. Cheer fulness in labor, singing while you toil—this is making labor what it was designed for, what it is, divine—a shield always against sickness, against want, against gloominess of spirt. It makes a clean conscience toward God and man. What more does it want to make one happy ? But, remember, this a cheerful, steady labor—taking your time and improving it. Forced labor is bad—that is a curse. And we see enough of it to sicken us daily, the world over. But the time is coming when this will be different. Xot that lei i mm »> i 11 it u.m-in ib i ^ iiii|Mi'.ium; , man must eat liis bread in the swert of his fare; but it will he ameliorated— machinery will do the rougher part, and intelligence will direct it. Then industry will be what we have so often dreamed it to be. what the poets have made it—a pastoral goddess, a giant Hercules. It is even such now, here and there, if we only make it moderate and intelligent. It will do more than the heat of excitement, which will soon spend itself, and leave the work and the worker the worse for the ef tort. iMion is lUTCbsu n iu iieaiill • if at at the same time it promotes other ends, so much the better. It does this. 9 > A REMARKABLE ACCIDENT. A Man Falls 170 Feet, is Shot Through a Flank Like a Bullet, and Escapes Unhurt! A Scotch paper, the Haddington <'mirier, has an extraordinary story of tlir escape of a miner who fell down the shaft of a eoal pit, near Tranent.— An old shaft was made use of to open up a communication with a new pit recently sunk. About half way down the shaft, which was two hundred and seventy-six feet deep, a wooden staging composed of strong two inch planks was built, completely intersecting the down shaft, to afford a firm footing to the miners entering the side shaft. At the bottom of the down shaft was a considerable accumulation of water, as is usual in pits which have not been worked for some time. On the occa sion in question a young man named Mvine, rather than wait for the com paratively tedious process of being lowered down by (lie windlass, said lie would slide down the rope. Disre garding the advice of his companions, lie got upon the rope, and they were in illl'UIiri III' Mill It t IIUII Hit'll IU I HU L lie had lost hold ol'it. The crash of his body against tbc wooden staging was heard, and they were making preparations to descend for the mangled remains, when a cry for assistance was heard coming up from the very bottom of the pit. The rapidity of bis descent of 170 feel had propelled him through the two-inch boards as neatly a.- if his body lmd been a rifle bullet, and with about as little injury, for not a bone was broken, and, except a small scratch on bis chin, bis person did not bear the slightest mark of coming in contact with anything during the descent. Falling into I he water at the bottom, he had, on coming to tlie surface, providentially thrown his arms over some wooden framework which happened to be there, and laid lbus been saved. The man was found here and was conveyed home quite conscious, and under medical care was soon able to be out of doors. The story lias certainly the appear ance of a fable, yet, if it is possible to shoot a candle through an inch board, why cannot a man be shot through a two-inch plank? The narrative is at I least sustaining, and anybody who chooses can have the liborty of doubt ing that it is well authenticated. - *4^* The Compositor on a "Bender."

All is Well. ‘Twelve o'clock at niglit, and all's | well 1’ False prophet! Still and statue-like 1 at yonder window stands the wife.— The clock has told the small hours, yet her face is pressed against the window pane, striving in rain, with straining eye. to pierce the darkness. She sees nothing, she hears nothing, hut the beating of her own heart. Now she takes her seat opens a Bible, and seeks from it what comfort she may, while tears blister the pages. Then she clasps her hands, and her lips arc tremulous with mute supplication. Hist! there is an unsteady step in the hall; she knows it, for many a time and oft it has trod on her heart strings. She glides down gently to meet the wanderer, lie falls heavily against her, and in maudlin tones, pronounces a name he has long since forgotten ‘to honor.’ Oh, all-en during power of woman's love!—no reproach, no upbraiding—the light arm passed around that reeling figure once erect in God’s own image. With ten der words of entreaty, which lie is powerless to resist, if he would, she leads him in. It is but the repetition of a thousand such vigils! It is the performance of a vow. with a heroism and patient endurance too common and every day to be chronicled on earth: too holy and heavenly to pass unnoticed by the registering angel above. ‘All's well!’ False prophet! In yonder luxurious room sits one w hose course it was to be as fair as a dream of Eden. Time was when those clear eves looked lovingly into a mother's face—when a kind lov ing father laid a trembling hand with a blessing on that sunny head—when brother’ and sisters’ voices blended with her own, made heart-music around the happy hearth. Oh ! where are they now ? Are there none to say to the re pentant Magdalen—‘neither do I con demn thee—go and sin no more.’ Must iiif glided ieuer continue to Dina me soul that loathes it, beenuse man is less merciless than God? ‘All’s well!’ False prophet! There lies the dead orphan. Ill all the length and breadth of the green earth, there was found no sheltering nest where the lonely dove could fold its wings when die parent bird had flown. The brooding wing was gone that covered it from the cold winds of neglect and unkindncss.— Love was its life, and so it drooped. •All's well !’ False prophet ! Sin walks (lie earth ill purple and tine linen : honest pover ty, with tcar-bede wed face, hungers and shivers, and thirsts, ‘while the pub lican stands afar off!’ The widow pleads in vain to the erniined judge for •justice :’ and unpunished of heaven, tlic human tiger crouches in his lair, and springs upon Ids helpless prey. ‘All's well 1’ All yes. all is well, for lie who ‘scctli the etui from the beginning' holds i evenly the scale of justice. ‘Dives >hall yet beg of Lazarus.’ Every hu man tear is counted. They will yet sparkle as gems in the crown of the patient and enduring disciple! When i Hie clear, broad light of eternity shines upon life’s crooked path, we shall sec the snares and pitfalls from which our hedge of thorns lias fenced us in ! and in our full-grown faith, we shall exult inglv say—‘Father, not as I will, lint as Thou wilt.’ Fanny Fekn. • » - The Holy Land in 1867. The Chicago Journul has n correspond cut who is strolling through the Holy Laud and Palestine- lie is not particularly im ! pressed with its present state, whatever us pasi may nave ueuu. jiu says: I have not seen a wagon road in Pales tine. Even the stones and timber for building the houses of Jerusalem must be brought into the city upon the backs of camels and doukeys; and the roads over which Abraham, ]>avid, Christ and the apostles once traveled, arc but paths winding over rocks and around the base of sterile mountains. In fact, this whole land, said to have been once so beautiful, is now but a rocky, barren waste. I think I have seen more good land in one square mile in Iowa or Illinois thau in all Palestine. M uch of the country is occupied by the Bedouin Arabs, and for the privilege of visiting the river Jordan and dead Sea their Sheik requires 82 50 from each per | son. For this amount he sends a guard of Arabs with you. • The population of Jerusalem is now said to be but 14,000. The correspond ent, upon this fact, moralizes thus: While looking at the city as it now stands, with its narrow streets filled with dogs, Arabs and filth, it is hard to realize ; it was once the home of more than one million human beings, and the proud mctripolis of a mighty nation. While i hiking out of the window at the Mosque of Omar, where the Turk bears rule, 1 can but ask myself the question, Is it possible that on that spot stood the temple of Sol ' omon ? Is it there that Pavid held his court? The pages of history answer, Yes, that spot is Mount Moriah. Upon that ground stood that temple whose glory . filled the whole earth. What is the difference between a mule atid a postage stamp ? We lick one with . a stick the other wc stick with a licit. The Folly of Oppression. From tlie Alton Iiemocrst.] The present radical policy in regard ! to the South is based on the idea as old as original sin, which has been tested by every nation that ever existed, and, without a single exception, failed—no matter when or by whom tried. It is that a brave and intelligent people who have for real or fancied wrongs appealed to the decision of the sword and been defeated, can lie made to love their conquerors by de liberate and systematic oppression. The strong arm of power may crush such a people, destroy their national existence and convert them into a race of outcasts without a country or a home; but they will survive all tiiis and live to linally triumph over those who forget that, principles of right and eternal justice arc as immutable and immortal as the Throne of God. Xo better exemplification of this historical truth can be found than that presented by the children of Abraham. Here is a race which, as Christians be lieve, committed the unpardonable sin by rejecting and crucifying the Ke deemer of mankind; and for tlii g were stripped of nationality, driven from tlie land where for thousands of years they had lived and flourished, branded with the mark of Cain and sent forth hearing the weight of heaven’s ven geance—given over, as it were, to the scorn, the insult, the outrage of the whole earth. The Hebrews have been tlie l’ariahs of the human family, and for centuries it was esteemed, not only right, but a Christian privilege and duty, to hunt them like savage beasts from city to city, from country to country, leaving them no protector but death, uo refuge hut the grave. Cath olics, Protestants, Mahominetans, hea thens, if they could unite in nothing else, joined hands and hearts in perse 'IMlIl- IUV UC1 TO. lilU IMMVl'l Ul 1111 this holy hatred and spiritual coercion was their religious ‘‘reconstruction;’’ to force them to believe the same creed and trust for salvation to the same means which the majority of Christen dom believed and trusted. As a sam ple of the means used to accomplish this end. we give the following pro visions of a Ilayonnc bill passed and enforced in England during the reign of Edward I: 1. Xo Jew shall come to or depart from England without license, on pain of death. 2. Xo Jew shall walk or ride with out a yellow badge upon his or her outward or upper garments, on pain of death. 3. Xo Jew shall condemn Jesus Christ nor blaspheme 11 is Divinity, on pain of being burned. •1. Xo Jew shall stir out ot his house or lodge on good Friday. 5. No Jew shnll strike a Christian, on pain of having his right arm cut oil'. G. Xo Jew shall kill a Christian, on pain that he be bagged alive on a gib bet and be fed daily on bread and wa ter until he dies. 7. If any Jew shall cheat a Christian ami escape, all the rest of the Jews shall make satisfaction to the Christian ! so cheated. j 8. All the synagogues of the Jews : shall be suppressed, and if any of their Uahbis or Jewish Priests shall teach or preach against the Christian religion hereafter in England, all such teachers and preachers shall be burnt. 1). Xo Jew, on pain of hanging, shall transport any bulliou or coin beyond the seas, nor deface or melt down any Christian coin. 10. The King's Judges shall not I hear the testimony of a Jew against a ; Christian. 11. No Jew shall be sworn upon the Evangelists. 12. The Jews shall have four judges, two thereof ehristians and the others Jews, who shall try and determine all ; causes between Jews and ehristians. 18. All the children of the Jews, a< \ soon as born, the rector or vicar of tin parish shall take from them, put sucl to nurses, and breed them up in tin ehristian religion, for which the Jewi must pay all the charges. 14. In the exchequer appointed foi ; the Jews, there shall be half Christian: and half Jews; and both shall hav< equal power and different locks unt keys to prevent fraud. 15. The Jews shall account for al the money they lay out and for tin protits, and return before the judicia rics over the Jews as soon as they shal be required. Hi. If any Jew shall be converted t< the Christian faith, all his usurious ae vulsitions arc to be converted to piom and charitable uses, but all his goods estate and moveables shall he his own 1 and not the king's as formerly acctis j tomed. 17. The Jews shall go to hear chris tian doctrines once a week, and a: many English Jews as turn christiuni shall be as free of England as If the) were born of Christian parents. IS. No Jew shall cohabit with t j Christian woman. It). No Jew shall be buried in conso : crated ground. 20. No Jew shall correspond witl any of the enemies of England. 21. No Jew's widow shall have an) right to administration, but after th« decease of her husband all the Jew": effects and movables shall be vested ii ' the king, and the king shall he execti i tor and administrator to all the Jew in England. 22. Xo Jew shall sue for his own debts, but in the name of the king’s license; and if any Jew defrauds flic king of liis customs or other rights, lie shall forfeit his all to the king. Xo doubt the sturdy Christians oi that day thought these tilings ortho dox, and any one who questioned their propriety or tlie liumnntiy of such “n republican form of government” as little better than a traitor and British copperhead, sympathizing with the Jewish faith and a hater of the son of man. The Jews did not resist; they bowed ! their necks, and the car of oppression rolled over them, but they did not yield their opinions or give up their belief. They wont to the stake and : the scaffold by thousands ; and in their case—as well as in every other of which history makes mention—the blood of the martyrs proved the seed of the church. They have outlived the Plantagencts, the Tudors, and the Stuarts; and to day a Rothschild sits in the house of | commons, and a D'lsracli controls the 1 destinies of that empire upon whose | domain the sun never sets. Remember, fellow citizens, that no lasting good was ever yet accomplish ed either in politics or religion, by per secutions; that no error in one or the other—to say nothing about truth— was ever destroyed by the “stamping out” process. AA'e are trying the experiment in the south, and no matter how flattering present or future appearance may be, we shall in the end fail and fail signally and completely.
