THE OLD MAN'S DREAM. 'Twas night, end the wind whistled through the branches of the trees, stripped of their verdure by the icy hand of winter, and howled mournfully around the corners of the old house, whose bleak and ruinous condition bore evidence of the many rude storms that had beaten with all their fury upon its " time worn walls." Within, a fire burned brightly, and despite the dark ness and gloom that reigned without, cast a cheerful light upon the face of an old man who sat before it, upon whoso wrin kled brow was the stamp of the cares and sorrows of three score years. His eye once bright with the fires of youth, was dimmed with sorrow. Ilis forui, once erect as the pine of his native hills, was now bowed down beneath the heavy hand of time, and have become stale and insufficient to grat- j considered as being acquainted with him, j power over the whole earth, whether leg-! ,or " government will kick you out oi 1 a convulsive Heaving ot ins breast spoKC ify their fastidious olfactories and pamper- j but hope he will excuse the liberty a j islative, Judicial, or Executive. ! tIie Kingdom.' , plainly of the grief that pressed upon his The Very Reverend father, much dis tressed at the result of this interview, has tened back to his convent, and lost no time in compiling the following protest, which 1. 1 1 1 1 .

We were the victims of Liberalism, ' rowed cheeks. He closed the book, laid it on the stand, bowed his head upon it, and was lost iu a reverie on the past. His dog, that for years had been a faithful friend, coiled himself at the old man's feet, and looked wistfully at his master. All was quiet. The old man moved not; and his regular breathing showed that sleep had at last locked him in her sweet embrace. He dreamed. He is a child again. Once more his mother follows his childish form with her anxious gaze. At night he bends his little head upon her knee, and repeats after her, his infant j prayer; then creeping to his cot, sleeps as innocence alone can sleep. Time flies swiftly on, and he passes to boyhood, the scenes of which, come often to the memory of old age, and with bright visions of the past, cheer many long hours when the lamp of life burns but dimly. With a gay heart and light, foot ho mingles in the sport of his companions, forgetful of the precious hours that are.flecing away to re turn no more. He looks forward with im patient longings, to the time when he shall be a man, when he can cast aside all con trol, and mark out for himself his future career. Life with its joys lay before him, and all looked fair as the morning sky ere a cloud has dimmed its brightness. "A change conies o'er the spirit of his dream."

One by one, his cherished children are snatched away, until none arc left. But ho has learned to "kiss tho Hand which smites," and can yet thank his Heavenly Father, that the wife of his youth, the last and dearest of earthly tics, is spared. He notes her silvered hair and sunken check, but the samo love light, beams on him from those clear eyes ; the same clear voice speaks soothingly and- tenderly. As he reaches forth his arms to cmbraco her, the vision fades, and with a sudden pang he lifts his head, to gazo only on a vacant scat, and the dead embers on his hearth' stone.

"i " ' abandon the manufacture and sale of alco hol, when it is the cause of so much dis tress and misery ? When we think of the vast amount of grain so kindly given us by our Heavenly Father for our good, being converted by the distiller into that which destroys both soul and body, is it any won der that our country is visited with drouth and threatened with famine? Yet, in spite of all that can be said and done, immense quantities of grain (which might supply many who arc now suffering with hunger) is sold by our farmers to feed the distillery, knowing at the same time, that it will be made into drink, which will utterly destroy those who partake of it. Our farmers ought to be the best of men. If they were prohibited sellingtheir grain to the distiller, then might we expect the evil to be remedied. But that will never be ac complished as long as men professing tem perance, but who are not really temperance men, arc elected to office, and afterward betray their trust. Why do not our Temperance men drop all party prejudice, aud unite on this one great and important question, and vote the icense system out of existence; put liquor out of sight, out of reach ; say that it shall not be made or sold ? We who have never acquired an appetite for strong drink, can tell nothing of tho great temptation those are under who have once formed the habit Many, no doubt, have resolved, and re resolved, to "touch not, taste not, handle not ;" but how can they save themselves, or how can they pray, "lead us not into temptation," when the temptation is placed before them at almost every step? I have heard some of my near and dear friends say, although engaged in preaching tem perance to others, they have often been made to tremble, lest in an unguarded mo ment they might again be led astray by the tempter. We must put it out of their reach, stop its manufacture, turn the grain into flour instead of liquor; then, indeed, will our glorious Union be 'happy and free,' and the smiles and blessings of our Hea venly Father will rest upon us as a nation. Worthy Brethren and Sisters, let us strive to do our duty. Let us not weary in well doing, for in "due time we shall reap if we faint not." That we may each live to see that time, is the prayer and sin cere desire of your sister in truth, love, purity and fidelity. e. c. n Many a Truth Spoken in Jest.

In a strong Democratic county in Penn sylvania, which usually gave that party about eighteen hundred votes majority, a Know Nothing Council was formed, pre vious to the Inst election, and soon num. bereel some eight hundred members. Tho time for making the nominations toon came on; a committee was appointed to look up n candidate for tho Legislature, for, as there were only eight hundred of them, none seemed disposed to seek tho anticipated defeat, which seemed inevita ble. The committee deemed it all impor tant that they should secure a candidate whoso standing in the community would command 'out-side votes' sufficient to make a respectable show ; one, and another, and still another was called upon, but all 'de clined the honor.' At length some one suggested the name of the teacher of tho District School, a young man of sterling worth, who was receiving a salary of 8300 per annum, as teacher; and who was a warm advocate of the principles of the new party, and every one knew him to bo a 'raal live Know Nothing.' He seemed to be the man for the emergency. Ho had nothing to lose in being a candidate no popularity no business. He was a proper person to be the 'victim' of the weak party. The committee waited on him, and asked him to 'run.' The young man expressed his willingness to 'stand' the canvass, but said he was unable to pay the expenses of printing the tickets, &c., if the committee would pay the expenses, he was willing to allow the use of his name for the good of the party. The bargain was made the tickets were printed the election came on the ballots were counted and the 'Victim' of 'Know Nothingism' received sixteen hundred votes majority over both Whig nnd Democratic competitors. TnE Enquirer says that money matters in Cincinnati are easier, notwithstanding the influence of several failures which have taken place since tho 1st inst.
