Morgan, BY LIZZIE G. BEEBE. Float gently, breezes, to her western home, Bearing upon roar wings this little oag; And as v lift the white flowers in her hair. Whisper it to her ere ye float along. Tell her I lore her, though I're aerer clasped -Her hand in mine, or gazed Into her eyes, Yet bj her warblings I hare learned to know How much of lore's bright sunshine in them lies. Breathe to her heart my wish that birds may sing; ' May warble sweetly in her western bower. Bright sunshine fall in waves of golden light, Gilding and brightening e'en her wintry hour. Bnt if the clouds should come, as come they may. May they fall gently as the summer rain Falls with its fragrance and its beauty down. Upon the earth to make it bloom again. That flowers may grow and ope their dewy eyes, In fragrant welcome all along her war; And this last wish is that her life may be One long sweet honey-moon, one bridal day. BY LIZZIE G. BEEBE. Miscellaneous. CHILD'S DREAM OF A STAR. BY CHARLES DICKENS. There was once a child, and he strolled about a good deal and thought of a num ber of things. He had a sister, who was a child too, and his constant companion. These two used to wonder all day long. They wondered at the beauty of the flow ers; they wondered at the height and blue ness of the sky; they wondered at the depth of the bright water; they wondered at the goodness and the power of God, who made the lovely world. They used to say to one another some times, "Supposing all the children on the earth were to die, would all the flowers and the water and the skj be sorry?" They believed they would be sorry. For, said they, the buds are the children of the flowers, and the little playful streams that gambol down the hill-sides, are the child ren of the water; and the smallest bright specks playing at hide and seek in the sky all night, must surely be children of the stars; and they would all be grieved to see their playmates, the children of men," no more. There was one clear shining star that used to come out in the sky before the rest, near the church spire, above the graves. was lartcr and more beautiful, they 0 . r . 0 . 1 they watched for it standing hand in hand I trance of the Star, and Said to the window. Who ever saw it first cried out, "I see the star! And often they cried out both together, knowing so well when would rise and where. So they grew to such friends with it, that, before lying down in their beds, they always looked out once again, to bid it good night; and when they were turning round to sleep they would say, "God bless the star!" But while she was still young oh very, very young the Bister drooped,- and came be so weak that she could no longer stand in the window at night, and then the child looked sadly out by himself, and when saw the star, turned round and said to patient pale face on the bed, "I see the star!" and then a smile would come upon face, and a little weak voice used to say, "God bless my brother and the star." And so the time came, all too soon, when child looked out alone, and when then was no faee on the bed; and when there was a little grave among the graves not there before; and when the star made long rays down toward him, he saw it through tears. Now these rays were so bright, and they seemed to make such a shining way from earth to heaven, that when the child wejit his solitary bed, he dreamed about the star; and dreamed that lying where he was, saw a train of people taken up that sparkling road by angels. And the Btar, opening, showed him a great world of light, where many more such angels awaited to receive them. All these angels, who were waiting, turn ed their beaming eyes upon the peoplo who were carried up into the star; and some came out from the long rows in which they stood, and fell upon the people's necks, and kissed them tenderly, and went away with down avenues of light, and were so happy in their company, that lying in his be wept for joy. But, there were many angels who did go with them, and among them one he knew. The patient face that once had laid the bed was glorified and radiant, his heart found out his sister among the host His sister's angel lingered near the ra the leader among those who had brought the people thither "Is my brother come?" And he said "No." She was turning hopefully away, when child stretched out his arms, and cried for y 0, sister, I am here! Take me!" and then she turned her beaming eyes upon him, and it was night; and the star was shining in to his room, making long rays down toward him as he saw it through his tears. From that hour forth, the child looked out upon the star as on the home he was to eo to. when his time should come, tnd he thought he did not belong to the earth alone, but to the star, too, because of his sister's angel gone before. There was a baby born to be a brother of the child; and while he was so little that he had never spoken a word, he stretched his tiny form out on his bed and died. Again the child dreamed of the open star, and the company of angels, and the train of people, and the rows of angels with their beaming eyes all turned upon those people's faces. Said his sister's angel to the leader "Is my brother come?" And he said "Not that one but anoth er. As the child beheld his brother's angel in her arms, he cried, "0, sister, I am here! Take mel" And she turned and smil ed upon him, and the star was shining. He grew to be a young man, and was busy at his books when an old servant came to him and said "Thy mother is no more. I bring her blessing on her darling son.'' Again at night he saw the star, and all that former company. Said his sister's an gel to the leader "Is my brother come?" And he said "Thy mother." A mighty cry of joy went forth through all the star, because the mother was reuni ted to her own children. . And he stretch ed out his arms and cried, "O, mother, sis ter and brother, I am here. Take me." And they answered, "Not yet," and the star was shining. He grew to be a man, whose hair was turned grey, and he was sitting in his chair by the fireside, heavy with grief, and with his face bedewed with tears, when the star opened once again. Said his sister's angel to the leader, "Is my brother come?" And he said, "Nay, but his maiden daughter." And the man who had been the child saw his daughter, newly lost to him, a ce- lestial creature among those three, and he said, "My daughter's head is in my sister's bosom, and her arm is around my moth er's neck and at her feet there is the baby of old time, and I can bear the parting from her. God be praised!" And the star was shining. ihus the child came to be an old man, and his once smooth face was wrinkled, and his steps were slow and feeble, and his back was bent And one night as he lay upon his bed, his children standing around , . , .. ... ... him, he cried, as he had cried long ago: "I sec the star! They whispered to one another, "He is dying." And he said, "I am. My age is railing from me like a garment, and I move to ward the star as a child. And 0, my Father, new I thank thee that it has so often opened to receive those dear ones who await me!" And the. star was shining; and it shines upon his grave. GOV. TOD ON WESTERN RESERVE DIET. ' Hon. David Tod made a speech at Woos ter on Tuesday evening of last week, in which he attempted to hold up to ridicule the people of the Western Reserve, among whom he was born and brought up. He is reported as follows: We can have no Democrats or very few on the Western Reserve, and I will tell you the reason. Go to any table there public or private, I care not which, and you have set before you what do you suppose? Anything for a christian man to sit down to? Anything from which you, my fellow Democratic friends, could stay the cravings of hunger? Not a bit of it Nothing of the kind. But, after a long pharisaio grace, you look at the feast and you find perhaps I had better read the bill of fare Pickled cucumbers, yellow. Pickled beans, short Sage cheese in small cubes. A plate of leather colored butter. Four biscuits, as big as a bull's eye watch and red with saleratus. Three Email slices of bread. Grace said, we sit down to meat To meat meat, did I say? To a dry, puritan ic, fast day refreshment such as they of fer you upon the Western Reserve, Do you think yon can raise Democrats upon such thin diet? I tell . yon no. A Democrat on the Western Reserve would starve. He wants something substantial his stomach: not new pickles and sour biscuit You can't raise Democrats on such fare. . . ho of he Knowledge cannot be acquired without pains and application. It is troublesome, and like deep digging for pure water; but when once yon come to the springs, they rise up and meet you. His so A LITTLE HERO. Grace Greenwood wroite the following lit tle story and a true one it is for the Little Pilgrim. She gets the facta from an incident described by the Hartford Dai ly Timet, some years ago, as having hap pened in Colt's Meadows: In the city of Hartford, Connecticut, lives the hero of true history I am about to relate, but no longer "little." as the perilous adventure which made him for a time famous in his native town, happened several years ago. Our hero was then a bright, active boy of fourteen, the son of a mechanic. In the severe winter of 18 , the father worked in a factory, about a mile and a half from his home, and every day the boy carried him his dinner across a wide piece of mead ow. One keen frosty day he found the snow on this meadow nearly two feet deep, and no traces of the little foot-path remaining. Yet he ran on as fast as possible, plunging through drifts keeping himself warm by vigorous exercises, and cheerful thoughts. When in the midst of the meadow, ful ly half a mile from any house, he suddenly felt himself going down, down, down! he had fallen into a well 1 He sunk down into the dark, icy water, but rose immediately to the surface. There he grasped hold of a plank, which had fallen into the well as he went down. One end of this rested on the bottom, the other i rose about four feet above the surface of the water. The poor lad shouted for help till he was hoarse and almost speechless; but all j in vain, as it was impossible for him to ' make himself heard from such a depth, and j at such a distance from any house. at ; last he concluded that if he was to be saved ; at all, he must save himself, and begin at once, as he was getting extremely cold in the water. So he went to work. First he drew himself up on the plank, and braced himself against the top of it and the wall of the well, which was of brick and quite smooth. Then he pulled off his coat and, taking out his pocket knife, cut off his boots, that he might work to greater advantage. Then, with his feet against one side of the welL and his shoul ders against the other, he worked his way up, by the most fearful exertion, about half the distance to the top. Here he was obliged to pause, take breath, and gather up his energies for the work yet before him. Far harder was it than he had yet gone through; for the side of the well being from that point completely covered with icCj he must cut with hia knife grasping- places for his fingers, slowly and carefully all the way up. It was almost a hopeless attempt, but it was all that he could do. And here the little hero lifed up his heart to God, and prayed fervently for help, fearing he could never get out alone. Doubtless the Lord heard his voice call ing from the depths, and pitied him. He wrought no miracle to save him, but breath ed into his heart a yet larger measure of calmness and courage, strengthening him to work out his own deliverance. It is in this way that God answers our prayers, when we call upon him in time of trouble. After this the little hero cut his way up ward, inch and inch. His wet stockings froze to the ice and kept his feet from slip ping, but his nhirt was quite torn from his shoulders ere he had reached the top. He did reach it at last crawled out in to the snow, and lay down for a moment to rest panting out his breath in little white clouds on the clear frosty air. He had been two hours and a half in the well! ; His clothes soon froze to his body, but no longor suffered with the cold, as full joy and thankfulness, he ran to the fitc- or tory, where his good father was waiting and wonder-ins. The poor man was obliged to go without his dinner that day, but you may be sure cared little about that while listening with tears in his eyes, to the thrilling story son had to relate to him. He must have been very proud of the boy that day, as he wrapped him up in his own warm overcoat and tok him home to mother. and smiled over the lad, and kissed him' and thanked God for him ! And how that mother must have wept j ORIGIN OF BLACK COATS IN THE CLERGY. he'll In the year 1524 Luther laid aside the monk's costume, and thenceforth dressed according to the fashion of the world. He chose black clothes, and consequently that color has become the fashion of the clergy. reason for choosing this color was: i n..un,r!;9Tr,v,v .n ;n , vawwa va awmvuj nvvav emu uibViMii ae ; him. and now and then sent him a niece of black cloth, being at that time the court fashion, and because Luther nrcferred it his scholars thought it became them to weir the same color as their master. From time black has been the color nest worn by the clergy.

The United States Fair Grounds at Cin cinnati are being rapidly put in order, and the grand exhibition will commence Sept 12th. The Power Hall is 200 feet leng by 80 feet in width, and a magnificent engine of eighty horse power will drive the ma chinery to be inspected. The Fine Art Hall is 200 feet long, and has connected with it an octagonal art gallery with light from above, for the exhibition of paintings and sculpture. Five large teats, each about 100 feet long and of corresponding width, will be used for farm and garden products, the horticultural, the pomologic- al, the implement, and mechanical depart- ments. Extensive arrangements will also be made for the accommodation of horses, cattle, sheep and swine. The Commercial says letters have been received from every section of the Union, announcing entries, and the Exhibition cannot fail to be a suc cess. The Queen City now has the opportuni ty to retrieve her character touching neglect of State Fairs held there, by extra exertion to give eclat to the National. We trust her Mechanio Institutes, Horticultural So cieties, etc, will give over money making side shows, and properly foster for onoe, at least, an Exhibition general in its charac ter. The Ohio, State Fair will open at Day ton, Scht 25th. and close the 23th. The pai,.

The whole Fair Grounds, excepting that portion occupied by the Horse Ring, is well shaded with fine oaks, and seats will be provided wherever room can be used for that purpose. The seats around and over looking the Horse Ring will accommodate at least 5,000 spectators. The Dining Hall is 265 feet in length by 23 feet wide.

Stevens, who conducted a silver prospecting expedition from Marys ville to the Black Rock country, a short time before the Washoe Jndiaa outbreak, informs the Marys7ille Democrat of an ex traordinary discovery which the expedition made of a petrified tree. Says the journal: The tree is lying in a desolate region, a bout 60 miles north of Black Rock, and near what is called High Rock Canon. It lay across several small gulches, and was partly buried in the soil. Its length so far as measured, the top being under the ground, was 666 feet nd the general opinion of the company, on looking at it was that it was from 40 to SO feet in diameter. Enor mous tree! Capt Stevens thinks it is of the same species as the trees of Mariposa. J; ragments 01 other trees of the same kind, but smaller, are visible here and tlioMh esimna onJ !nfl a rtf 0.fl ff lnotVi , , .. . v all petrified. And it is more than prob- able that a little excavation would discov er a vast primeval forest there buried. This tree lies exactly where it fell, centu ries ago, for there are the upturned roots, in just the position they would most natu rally be, and the psone trunk bears no evi dence of having been disturbed. It seems strange that the remnants of a great forest should thus be found in a country now wholly destitute of any sort of living growth whatever, except sage, brush, and grease- wood, for a hundred miles around, o o o 0 0 o A specimen of the petrification may be seen at the office of Dr. Thompson, taken from the tree at a distance of 200 feet from the base. It b only a half inch thick. but contains the marks cf six years groth. Since penning the above, our friend Champlin, a member of Capt Stevens' com pany, has called en us, and shown us a specimen of the big tree alluded to. It is very curious to look at The petrification .1 : v.r i:i .1: I a. ""the the part of the tree from which it was ta- ken, it being the sap and the rings iiext to it He showed us also a petrification of fat pine, which he struck from a petrified stump in the same vicinity. It looks so natural that you can almost fancy you smell the resin, when you put it to your nose. It is certainly a marvelous preser vation, a material record as durable as time. In the same place, the company found the shin-bone of a man petrified, and the up per jaw of a grizzly, but twice as large as the jaw of any grizzly ever seen in modern times. BREAKING THINGS GENERALLY. Fanny Fern, once stopping at the office of a Philadelphia hotel to pay her bill, on the eve of departure, found a charge for the breaking of her toilet set She admitted the breakage of one piece, and desired to pay for that only. The price of the whole was demanded because the "set" was bro ken. The carriage was at the door; there was no time for discussion, but enough for action. Hastily paying the demand, and directing the carriage to wait a moment she went directly back to her room, and ta king up the poker, incontinently broke ev ery remaining piece in the set The New York World makes this the text of an article against the charges of the Lelands for furnishing some seventy rooms in the Metropolitan Hotel, which were "very superb in their adornments,' which accounts for several thousands ef the one hundred and five. We quote: "Either let that furniture be properly appraised, and its present value deducted from the bill, or let it be brought into the street and smashed into smithereens made into bonfires." ! t or LEFT THE GAS BURNING AND WENT TO EUROPE. a. The New York correspondent of the Mo- bile Regitter relates the following: T a. .1 L 3 A T I ecenuy a genucmau runicu irom x.u- rope; he had been absent with his lamuy months.

Mr. Grinnell went out and complained to I the Secretary, related the circumstances, and threatened exposure to such a bare- faced robbery. He refused to pay the bill "Very well Bir," said the Secretary. Mr. G. went home and told his wife. "Pay it' said she. "Why eo?" said he, Because,' said she, "the day we left New York I had eo back to the house for some article I had forgot The window Bhutters were fastened; I lit the gas; the other day when we returned I found it still burning." . do The bill was paid, for a steady gas flame had been burning for seven months.

The cele brated traveler, Ledyard, paid the follow ing handsome tribute to the female sex. "I have observed," he says, "that women in all countries are civil, obliging, tender and humane. . I never addressed myself to them in the language of decency and friend ship, without receiving a decent and friend ly answer. With man it has often been otherwise.

A late well-known member of the Scottish bar, when a youth, was somewhat of a dandy, and somewhat short and sharp in his temper. He was going to pay a visit in the country, and was making a great fuss about the prepar-' ing and putting up of his habiliments. Hia old aunt was so annoyed at all this bustle, and stopped him by somewhat contemptu- ous qurstion. "Whaur s this your gaun, Robby, that ye mat sic a grand ware about your closes?" The young man lost his temper, and pettishly replied, "I'm going to the devfl." "'Deed, Robby, then," was the quiet answer, "ye need na be sac nice; he'll tak ye as ye arc." No Retriat.
