The widow, of Ashur are loud In their The"ldols are broke in the temple of Baa-,' Thus beautifully has Byron ex nmupd the amrui9h and desolation which succeeded the annihilation of Knnnhrih and all his minions, The Assyrians had menaced the Jews with ntter destruction : they had left their homes with every prospect of orsar. snoil to temnt their avarice they had joyously parted with their wives, but now the "Angel or ueatn had stoorjed in bis flifthtand tbe busy camp bad been transformed into a Vitv of the dead". Imagination can inn dnnict the dismal howls, the suppressed sobs, the wild grief and piercing groans, wnicn wouia aruw from each habitation throughout that broad realm. -Twaa pitiful, 'twas wondrous'plUfuL" The trajredy of Sennacherib has tun ltl hnrlpsnued. It aPDears as a political farce and excites univers al comment From tne nonces wnicn this burlesque has received in the nArinrlirals. it must surpass anything . k b-t.,,1 ths niintrv has ever Ul B.,M I - seen. The conflicting statements of the eminent critics, wno nave given ..Juallnn thai r 11 fill I Vld(Ml Stten- IUI9 UIWJ.VMU.

Tta tinexrject n well w bju . , 7 . . ai .nnAannrai has excited a buzz of curiosity, but it will prove as useless and as transitory, aa a luurm ui wuiy rocket. The rocket attracts all eyes, shoots through tbe air, Is dissipated into a few sparks and shortly all is darkness. It has gonefcnd has left no trail. May it not be so with tne larce nhinh llaurs. Krhll fZ. Tiumbull & Co. have enacted in the Senate ? General Grant sustains about tne same relation to mis jarce, as um Heekiah to the original tragedy, while Schurr 4 Co. take the part of Sennacherib and his associates. Hez ekiah is represented as a hnoiane and moderate prince, wbo was not foad of boasting or rant- --, Sennacherib, on the other hand, was arrogant and doroineeriog.:'- : Tknaa AAnvatnunt with Old Testa ment history wiH remember that the Assyrians at first attempted to con vince the JewB that they would pro mote their interests by surrendering unconditionally, as pprsition would be entirely useless.- l ne J ewiso leau er quietly refused to comply with their demands. He recognized a higher power.tban that of armed , men or frownlBg-walls. ine guarai an angels wbo bad ever accompanied th TA-fiah rwknnlt were hoverimr oyer the doomed city, and in one mo ment It was nelivered from tne terror of an invading host. Sennacherib could not discern these winged mes sengers, as they wheeled over the beads of the Jewish soldiery; but Hezekiah saw and trusted them, and found tbem strong in the hour of need. U. 6. Grant is a quiet man, a peaceable man aud he rests his pros pects of reelection on tbe confidence which be has inspired as a soldier and chief executive. It is by disregard ing this confidence that his opponents arrive at the conclusion that be will surely be defeated. But with the confidence of tbe masses to sustain him, be can successfully weather tbe storms of vituperation and calumny, which are being buried on his bead, and finally be triumphantly retained in his present position. The first act is introduced by theap pearance of Gen. Grant in the garbof a political guillotitier. From tbe san guine nature of this introduction, one might be led to call it tbe legitimate tragedy, but from this moment it as sumes a less bloody and vindictive character until it attains that of tbe true comedy. The General officially decapitates Sumner, Schurz, Trum bull and a few other "leading lights," or in other words he quietly informs th.m that. h will not rwiuire their I private and confidential advice on questions oi a-uiiniue pomy. They writhe and squirm like tbe fish ing worms which tberelentlessangler has sacrificed to the prospect of a fine trout. Their prospects of continuing to be tbe biggest toad iu the adminis trative puddle, became inconceivably' attenuated. Whereupon they turn States evidence, defame tbeir former associates, vent tbeir pent np spleen on our political institutions and rush up and down the stage, shouting "nepotism, nepotism," just as if it made any difference to the American people wno the President appointed to ortice so long as tbeir requirements are fulfilled with honesty and effi ciency. The sore-heads of Congress are loud In their wall. Their hope are all blasted, their plan, will all fall. The curtain drops on this rathe' amusing scene and rises to reveal Sumner declaiming In high dudgeon against tbe acquisition of St. Domin go. He mingles bis rhetoric and logic with some insinuation intended to implicate tbe President in a mone tary scheme for annexing that beau tiful gem of the Antilles. This act was suddenly brought to a close by the President boldly disclaiming con nection with any such schemes, and modestly expressing a desire that the wishes of the countiy should be eon suited. By this straight forward course he silenced tbe howls of tbe non-acquisitionists and declare as i loudly as actions could declare, that the will of the people should govern Vw.i ,KHa a.rcin tal 2. Act. Mr. Trnmbull, sustained by others, begins crying "civil service reform."- These catch words were intended tb carry a little favor with tbe masses.

"Young man!" said tbe late emi nent Judge M , at a fashionable Sarty where wine flowed in abun ance. "Young man, put down tbat glass ! There is death In It!" Henry Graham dropped the cut glass goblet upon the table, startled. by the abrupt exclamation of the udge, and tbe wine flowed in a ruby stream over the velvet carpet. "Sir! what mean von?" be asked. his face flushing and his eye brilliant with excitement, "I mean," said the judge, impres sively, "to dlscouutenanee always, in every place, at every time, aud in every available manner, the use of in toxicating drinks. My young friend, you were about to place to your lips an infernal poison! You were doing it -gayly, thoughtlessly, recklessly. Would you dare, if you stood within tbe gate of death's domain, in the face or uod and tne angels, would you dare to quaff the draught which but a moment ago filled yonder shattered glass? When you remembered the Divine edict tbat no drunkard shall inherit the kingdom of Heaven, would you run the risk of falling under tbe terrible ban?" The young man grew pale, he shrank a little before tbe penetrating gaze of bis intorlocutor, and his voice was sliirhtlv unsteady, as he said : "I do not think I quite understand yon, sir." "Sit down, my friend," said the judge, for tbe gay company naa oeen smitten to stillness bv the unusual earnestness with which be' had spo ken, and many of thorn had risen to their feet, "and I will rerat to you a little 6tory which will, perhaps, have a double Interest when I tell you tbat the incidents are strictly true. And to you, Henry Graham, as one of whom l leel a deep aegTee oi interest, I wish particularly to a aunt my self." Young Graham took a seat near the judge and gave him it to attention. lii-t-TT-flTTA 'vpai-a :'srt said the judge, "there resided in the township ot Milan a pappy iamnyv is consis ed of a father, a mother and three children two boys and a girl. The father whom I will call John Deane, was a lawyer of high repute, a man of brilliant intellect ana soiia eaucaiion. His wife was a beautiful woman, richly gifted by nature, and she had received all the cultivation which wealth can give to its daughters. I said they were a happy ramily. I think I have never known a happier. Peace sat all day with folded wings by their hearthstone, and content ment bad there a- constant biding place. .... "John Deane stood very -high in the oninion of his townsmen, as well as with the people of tbe wbole dis trict, and by and by hi name was mentioned in connection with tbe nomination fur Congres. from the Milan district. He made no effort to obtain tbiB nomination, but it was ; t,Im ni at thA nnal plA-tlnn Kavtju Li 1 Lll . HUM - . . be received the hearty support of his naxtv. and was the successful candi date. It would have been strange If be bad been otherwise tban pleased with this testimonial of esteem, and his hitherto quiet bouse was thrown iinen for the reception of political friends. It was fashionable then, as it is in some circles at the present day, to Bet forth wine for the enter tainment of company, and it would have reonired a (treat deal of moral courage on the part of Mr. Deane to make the nm innovation, auu remiw to "treat" the friends wbo had raised him to a position of so much honor. He was what la called a "temperance man :' that is. he never drank him self; he bad a horror of drunkenness and could make a very eloquent speech at the monthly meeting of the Cold Water Society. At first he had a struggle with his conscience in re gard to placing wine on his table, but confidential friends ridiculed his scruples, and at last he grew to think tbat dinner was very Insipid which lacked tbe crowning charm of wine. "Time passed on, and having dis charged his duties at Washington to the satisfaction of his party, he was elected for the second term. His tal ents well fitted him for tbe highest rank in society, and at the busy, in triguing Capital no party was deemed complete without the presence of the witty and accomplished Representa tive from the Milan district. At these convivial parties he drank the highly flavored liquors set before him be cause it would nt do to seem odd, so he excused himself to his conscience; but after awhile he did not make any excuse be drank from pure love of doing so. "Wine became almost necessary to bis existence; luxurious living had vitiated his tastes and enervated both mind and body, and to prevent reac lon snd conseouent remorse, be en deavored to cure tbe disease with the very poison which bad engendered It. Thus many others have done the same, nntil tbe Intellect given of God bas been quenched in more man Idiocy, and tbe ftar cr hope has set forever in the black shadows of the drunkard's grave! John Deane. at the expiration of his second term in office, came home to bis family a confirmed inebriate. Promise after promise be made to re form, but appetite always inumpnea. Friends entreated him, temperance votaries did all in tbeir power to save him, but they all produced, at best, but a momentary feeling of self re proach in the breast of the miserable man. 'Once iu bis course, he was stayed for a brief space by a terrible discove ry a discovery which made even his besotted soul shrink with horror. His ife his beautiful and accomplished Annie had yielded to the fascinations of tbe wine cup, and, following tbe example of her husband, she draok daily, and was fast becoming that thing Of wnicn an men speaa wnu loathing a female drunkard. "For a time. John Deane retreated In affright from the yawning abyss which' intemperance bad opened at bis feet; be shunned the bar-room of tbe hotel where he was wont to meet bis wine-loving friends ; he abstained from tbe daily glasses at home, and for a little while it seemed as if his feet sera turn in e from tbe slippery places and taking hold upon the path. I of xrutn out aiasi it wis ooiy iut a Iittte while! His wife might have in fluenced him to cling to the hope which seemed damning to bim, had she only been stronger than the temp tations wblch beset her, but she only lent tbe strength of her example to tbe fascinations of tne w ine uemoo. "They drank together, and together were intoxicated. Tbeir youngest child a sweet little angel but three summers old, was quieted when ill or fretful with wine, and one day when the child had suffered from illness until -he could no longer restrain her cries, tbe mother herself under the influence of the ratal Btimuiant gave little May a draught of brandy. She was thrown Into convulsions, from which nothing could save her, and before morning she was taken to the world where all children have the constant care of a wise Father. "The two boys, Arthur and Wil liam, for awhile stood aloof from this bane of tbeir parents' life ; but at last the younger, William, fell into the habit of tasting the contents of the glass, "out of curiosity," he said, when remonstrated with by his brother. But once started on the fatal road and there was no halting place. He went downward rapidly. Alter aten months' career at the gambling-table, be was shot by a comrade In a drank n hrawl 1 To the deadened faculties of the father and mother, this terrible occurrence was not an affliction they scarce looked upon It as anything for which they should grieve, and when they itood together over the silent coffin of that dead boy, the cup was there to comfort them ! They went to that bev.rage which has been, not inaptly, termed "the drink of hell," for the comfort which only comes down from God ! "Their handsome property was long since sauanJered the beautiful house and furniture passed under the hammer of tbe auctioneer, and a lowly hovel received the drunken couple and their wretched son. "Oh, the scene of horror which the eyes of that son were forced to wit ness! A father his noble manhood prostituted to a vile appetite, bis In tellect ruined, bis soul wandering in Infidelity shunned by respectable people, and condemned to the society of those as low as himself. A mother her gentle love turned to stolid in differenceher whole life but a series of petty bickerings with the man whom she bad sworn to love and hon or. Her child was no longer regarded with that holiest of all human senti ments, a mother' lore, and when he would have sought tbe grateful sym pathy in his pursuits wblch all true mothers are so happy in giving, he was met by drunken jeers, and sent to the ale house for rum. Worse than orphaned ! Tbe child of shame and contempt ! Pointed at by boys of bis own age, shunned by pure faced little girls, who whispered among them selves tbat he was a drunkard's child! Judge what joy there was in life for him! "Conservative minds may cry out against the use of strong language In peaking of this demon, Intemper ance, which yearly lays in the grave its thousands; but think you tbe child of those miserable parent would call my expression too strong! Lan guage is weak and inadequate to con vey to you any idea of the loathing and hatred which Arthur Deane felt In his heart for intoxicating drink. Would that every man, woman'and child throughout the length and breadth of tbe land felt the same. "But to return. Five years passed away, during wblch poverty in all its grim gauntness was established in the house of John Deane. Starvation more than once paused before the door, and want was an every day guest. Domestic strife began at sun rise, and ceased not at tbe going out of day. Oh ! that time is full of bit ter memories for Arthur Deane ! But I am making a long story, and must hurry on to the close. "One day. in a fit or drunken fury, John Deane struck bis wife a blow upon the head with a fragment of a chair which had previously fallen a sacrifice to hU rage. She fell to the floor, and the man was sobered in an instant by the sight. She lay at his feet, still and white, beautiful in spite of the ravages her sin bad made, tbe blood gushing in a dark stream from her temple, and clotting the long, dark hair which fell in a neglected mass over her shoulders. "She was dead ! Murdered by her own husband !" "Stung by remorse and fear, as be saw the cold pallor of death settling over her features, John Deane placed the muzzle of a pistol to his breast and in a moment lay beside his dead vic tim ! There was a brief straggle of the forces of life and death a faint call for 'mercy !' and he had gone to bis account!: .... "And Arthur Deane, over tbe bodies of bis parents took a solemn oath never so long as the spark o: life burned in his breast to swallow one drop of intoxicating liquor! And he bas never broken the vow. And now, Henry Graham, I have loved yon as my own son you 'are soon to stand in .hat near and dear relation towards me and I wish to warn you against an enemy which walks the land alike at midnight and at noon day an enemy which is found domesticated in the homes of tbe rich and the poor! Will you be admon ished? Will you heed my council? Will von shun more ay. a thousand times more than you would death the wine cup? Hell itself lurks In its depths, and eternal torment burns in its crystal brightness! Henry Graham, will you newareT" There was a pause, during which no one spoke, and tbe face of young Graham alternately paiea aou uusucu. Helen M-, the judge's fair daughter, watched him in breathless suspense, for in two weeks she was to become Henry Graham's wife. "If anything more is needed," said tbe Judge, "know all of you, that John Deane was my father, and the wife he murdered was the mother who bore me!" Graham stepped forward, and took the band of tbe judge in both of his. "It is enough! be said solemnly, tbe light of a new purpose sinking Into nis eves : henceforth. I will shun everything tbat can intoxicate, and may Uod deal wltn me as i aeep tne vow !" It was even so. ' Wine never entered the home of Henry Graham, and water, pure, beautiful water, fresh from tbe sweet fountain of the earth, was his daily drink. The sweet face of Helen Graham never bad cause to blush for the eon duct of her husband, and when in after years tba people made him Gov ernor of bis uative State, and bis bouse was the stronghold of hospitali ty, wine was never seen upon his table, but be offered to bis guests In stead the drink that God himself pro vided free on every hillside clear, eold water! HASTE AND HEALTH. It is not at all wholesome to be in a hurry. Locomotives have been repor ted to have moved a mile in a minute for short distances. But locomotives have often come to grief by such rapidity. Multitudes in their haste to eet rich are ruined every year. The men who do things maturely, slowly, deliberately, are tbe meo who oftenest succeed ia life. People wbo are habitually in a hurry generally have to do things twice over, ine tortoise beat the bare at last Slow men seldom knock tbeir brains out against a post Foot races are injuri ous to health, as are all forms of com petitive exercise; steady labor in tne field is tbe best gymnasium in the world. Kitber Labor or exercise, carried to exhaustion or prostration, or even great tiredness, expressed by "fagged out," always does more nartu than the previous exercise bas done good. All running up stairs, or to catch up with a vehicle or ferry boat, are extremely injurious to every age and sex and condition of life. It ought to be tbe most pressing neces sity wblch should induce a person over fifty to run twenty yards. Those live longest who are deliberate, whose actions are measured, who never embark in any enterprise without "sleeping over it," and who perform all tbe every-day acts of life with calmness. Quakers are proverbially calm, quiet people, and Quakers are a thrifty folk, the world over. Dr. Hall.

T!ie intense activity of this present age is not alone confined to discover ies in mechanics.ingenious inventions, aplicatlons of steam in place of hu man power, aud the like, but all de partments of thought, .swell as action possess tbeir devoted followers, and literature is by no means behind tbe rest. Indeed tbe facilities of commu nicating with the public are so great, tbat nine persons of culture out of ten are authors or journalists, while the luxury has become so common tbat the public have grown fastidious, and excellent judges, too, a to style and real merit. The moralist must clothe his arguments In fitting garb, and represent his theories with a cer tain affluence of thought, if he would retain the attention of reader or hearer ; the philosopher must not for get to add the grace of metaphor to bis profoundest efforts, and in the sturdy steps of the historian must be strewn the fragrant wayside flowers of narrative style to captivate the general reader. In olden times litera ry men were so scarce as to form a class by themselves, and Indeed, not far back, even kings could not write, but like Charlemagne, made their mark upon the parchment. Tbe sol diers of those days scorned to famil iarize his hand with tbe pen, while to day we have subalterns and privates writing tbeir commentaries like Cse sar, the consequence being that we have a vast number of books of a most Indifferent character; still there is scarcely one written in a pure and concientious spirit, which does not poetess some value, and contribute its mite to swell the great aggregate of knowledge. Condensation of thought is the one great virtue of literature; the com pressed idieas are those that are re membered, We have not time or room to carry about loose thougts and rambling fancies; the philosophic writer who understands tbespiiit of our times will use a sort of hydrosta tic press to get his reflections into a portable shape before he spreads them upon paper. It is easy enough for any one to be complicated and obscure; simplicity and directness are far more difficult and much more rarely attain ed, while the use of words bigger than the thing expressed deceives no one in these inteligent times, when every other man or woman is a writer and all are critics- Yet the elder Disneli contended that there was as much a fashion to our literature aa to' our coats, and that both were amendable to certain arbitrary rules of the day. We can illustrate our own idea of style by no simile so well as tbat of the writer who declared the Gothic school to be the thing, the po-nted style, both as ap ied to lit erature and to churches. And yet, because a painting is not by Raphael or Guido, we do not turn away from it. neither should we despise or fa.il to learn from even the humble literary adventurer. Doubtless from some point of view, by means of the right light, we should see hidden merit and beauty there; possibly, when the sun shall fall upon it, as on the Greek statue music will greet us. Sometimes, perhaps it is because we have not the rosy fingers of Aurora, that Memnon yields no sweetness to our touch. -V, The literature of to-day, we humbly conceive, bas kept pace with the maiked progress in all departments of inteligence. Authors, from addres sing a more cultivated audieuce tban heretofore, have themselves set up a higher standard of excellence, endow ing their product with Promethenn .nH wa hv no means aeree on this' point with a modern essayist, . , . i ...... a- mmH nntn. wno aaviaes uio juu.g n,-r. ing which Is not old.

The progressive modern writer em ploys none of the sickly sentimental ity so rife half a century since, it would be out of place; he addresses himself to higher Intelligence, and represents men and women as they really are, not a impossibilities. He writes with a purpose, some great so cial Idea inspires bim, and in his il lustration be uses just such characters aswemeetwlth every day. It is bis or her genins and artistic delineation which clothes the people with extra ordinary interest, not tbe theatrical employment of winding sheets and blue lights, nor are the dark under ground passages of a ruined castle in dispensable to the scenes described. Tbe literature of to-day, therefore, unlike tbat of half a century past, imparts a knowledge of the real world, of men abd manners, lust as much, and perhapes more clearly, than years of social intercourse and years of travel. olon Globe. Hope and Courage. Tkck hope character. A strong mind always hopes, and has always cause to hope, because it knows the mutability of human affairs, and how slight a cir cumstance may change tbe whole course of events. Such a spirit, too, rests upon Itself; it is not confined to any particrlar objects; and if at last all should be lost, it has saved itself its own integrity and worth. Hope awakens courage, while despondency is the last of all evils; it is the aban donment of good the giving up of the little of life with dead nothing ness. He who can implant courage in tbe human soul is its best physi cian. To seek to govern men by their fears and wants, is an unworthy pur pose; tbe deaire to rule by means of cowardice is of ltseif cowardice Love Inspires courage and hope, and ki. i .i..hi. tba oiver and preserver of life. Whatever teaches us boldly to combat tne manuoiu ems u-asi-aiilta of life, enables us to win thA nmvn of victory. Srjecial care. therefore, ought to be taken in educa tion to teach wnat true courage w, an well in social and domestic as in pub lic affairs and by what means it may be best sustained.

It would be a great deal better io wear the entire winter suits through March, and even to tbe middle of April; and even then, until The first week in May, to make no chaDge in the outer clothing, nor any in the in ner garments, except in a Jess heavy woolen next the skin; for it is only for the three hours embracing 1 o'clock in the afternoon tbat winter clothing is at all oppressive; while tbe very warmth of noonday makes the raw dampness of tbe morning and tbe late afternoon specially felt. All changes to lighter or cooler garments should be made at dressing in the morning.andif in any case the change leaves tbe body chilly, or if, soon after it is made, the weather changes to be much cooler, by all means promptly, without half an hour's delay, resume tbe full winter dress. The old, the young, the invalid, in short, all per sons of feeble constitutions, of small vitality, should be especially careful to beed these suggestions; inattention to which gives rise to the very fre quent announcement in tbe daily pa pers in tbe early spring.

Even water-drinking, ap parently so harmless, becomes, with some people, a most pernicious habit; they cannot exert themselves in any way without drinking water; they are regularly in the habit of drinking many glasses of water daily between meals. Tbe habit is an injurious one; it gently weakens the digestive pow ers, hastens the waste and verv proba bly tends to produce corpulency. Unfortunately, however.water-drink-ing is for less frequently a Mbit than beer-drinking, which, in quantities very far short of intoxication ,13 much more injurious.
