Every eve when I'm returning
From the labors of the day,
As I pass a lonely cottage
That is falling to decay,
I behold a patient woman
Throngs the little window pane.
Looking with aa air expectant
Down the narrow grassy lane. .
White as sdow ber scanty tresses,
Wrinkles oa ber thoughtful brow,
And ber cheeks are furrowed deeply.
With the lines that Time can plow.
Seventy winters long and dreary
From their heavy cloods have shed
Flakes of never ehangeing whiteness
On the patient woman's head. a
F ifty years ago her lover
Stood beside her in the lane.
Saying as they parted "Hannah.
Sunday night I'll come again.
Let me see yon at the window"
As I hasten np the lane
God be ith yon dear. Remember,
Sunday night I'll come again."
Bnt before that precious evening.
Sweeter to the maiden's mind
Than a bed of early violets
Kissed by the gentle April wind,
Came to bless her with its presence.
Longingly for which she sighed,
He, the most beloved lover
That e'er blessed a maiden died.
Well-s-dnv for loveing Hannah,
When they told her be was dead.
Her deroted mind forever
From its shattered mansion fled.
Gentle as an April sunbeam,
Patient as a mother's love.
Hopeful as the earnest christian
Who has moored his hope above.
She througi all these fifty winters
Hath believed herself again
Loved and loving as of old time
- When they parted in the lane.
Every day to ber is Sunday,
And behind the window pane
Every eve she sits and watches
For her lover down the lane.
Soliloquy of a Loafer.
Let's see, where am I? This is coal
I'm lying on. How'U I get here? Yes,
mind now. Was coming tip street
met a wheelbarrow; was drunk, coinin'
t'other way, the wheelbarrow tell over
mc, or over the wheelbarrow, and one of
as fell into the cellar do'nt know which

Jones fault? No. Its my wife's fault?
Well, it ain t. Is it the wheelbarrow s

poor, I reckon. - I think I won't own him
anymore, ill cnt his acquaintance, lve
had that notion for about ten years, and
always hate to do it for fear of hurting
his feelings. 1 11 do it now I tbnk Iiq

sometimes I get mad, when 1 m drnnk,
and abuse Bets and the brats; it nsexl to
be Lizzie and the children that's some
time ago. I'd come home o' evenin's she
nsed to put her arms around my neck and
kiss me and call me dear William. . When
comes hamc now, she takes her pipe
out of her eyes, and says somthin like
"Bill, yon drnnken brute, shut the door
after yon; we are cold enough, haven' no
fire, 'thont lettin' the snow .blow in that
way." Yes she's Bets and I'm Bill, now.
ain't a good bill, nnther; think I'm a
counterfeit, won't pass a tavern without

what bank I m on. Last Saturday I was
on the river bank drunk. .
I stay out pretty late; no, sometimes
I'm ont all night; facts is, I'm out pretty

pocket, out at the elbows and knees, and
always outrageously dirty so Bets says;
but then she s no jndge, for she s never
clean herself. I wonder why she does'nt
wear good clothes may be she hasn't got
'em; whose fault's that? tain't mine ;
must he whiskey's. "
' Sometimes I'm in, however; I'm in
toxicated now, and in somebody's coal
cellar. There's one principle I've got
won't get in debt; I never could do it.
There, one of my coat tails is gone got
tore off, I expect, when I fell in here.
I'll have to get a new suit soon. A fel

so big I d kick him. lve had this shirt
on for nine days, an' I'm afraid it won't
come off without tearin. People ought
to respect more'n they do, for I'm in ho

clothes are pretty near Greascian style. I
gness I tore this window shutter in my
pants t'other night, when I sat down on
the wax in Ben Rugg's shop; I'll have
to get it mended, or I'll catch cold. I
ain't very stout, as it is. As the boys
say, I'm as fast as a match and as healthy
as thesmall pox. My best hat ha been
standing guard for a window pane that
went ont t other morning at the invita
tion of a brickbat. I'ts gettin' cold down
here wonder if I ain t able to climb. If
had a drink I could think better. - Let's
see; I ain't got three cents; if I was in
tavern I conld sponge one. Whenever
anybody treats and says "come fellers,"
always think my name "fellers," and
I've got too good manners to refuse.
Well, I must leave this, or they'll arrest
me for attempt at bnrglary. I ain't
come to that yet. Anyhow it was the
wheelbarrow done the harm not tne.

The Virgiaia Panther Fight.
William and Henry Randolph and my
elf started in the year in 1851 on a deer
hunt, and snow more than knee deep. We
started np different ridges, all leading to
to the top of faddy Mountain. After 1
had gone a short distance, J. got ' upon a
large bear-track, fas I supposed). I aeem-
sd to plow through the snow like a horse.
I halloed for the boys, and when they came
op they agreed it was a bear. We follow
ed on the track. Did not go far before we
saw where it had torn up a deer. We
thought it was one the bear had found dead
but soon discovered we were mistaken.
It had eaten all the flesh. We saw sever
al small tracks as we afterwards conclu
ded those of a female panther. We kept
along the top ' of the mountain, and
could see where it would go into den after
den of rocks, in and out. followed on un
til near dark when we 'denned it.' It was
a desperate looking place oh, most terri
We concluded we had better go home
and next morning get some dogs, when we
would have some fine sport. We bad a fa
tiguing time getting home, tired enough,
and after night. Early the next morning
we started with five dogs, and got to the
top of the mountain by sunrise, (six or sev
en miles.) . When we rescued the place
we found that the panther had come out
and the small one with it. We followed
their track. They entered and left several
dens. As -you may guess, it was tiresome
work to u--. ihey seemed to travel on the
very roughest and most rocky places. We
still thought them bear. The track turned
and seemed to come back another way.
At last it stopped and went into the rocks.
We were awfully tired and the sua nearly
down. We made an examination. Des
perate looking places, the rocks very high
and straight as the wall of a house. The
track went around at the base of the cliff,
then came to a lower point and got on top.
Then it jumped down into a. hole between
the rocks, six feet deep, aud perpendicular,
I laid down and peeped over. ' At the bot
tom I could see a crack iu the side where
the beast bad gone in.
Operations begun by letting one dog down
He barked, and a growl answered that
seemed like the loudest thunder beneath us.
Then all the dogs jumped down, and such
a growling you uever heard. We could
hear the claws against the rocks. One
small dog got well at him, and had four
holes bitten in him, you could put your
finger in. We still tbnght it was a bear
and would come out, aud kept our guns
cocked and pointed. It became clear that
we must get the dogs out. So we helped
William down. He handed up the dogs.
They out, all was quiet and nothing to be
seen, we pulled William out but let him
down ngain, to look in the crack at the an
imal. We let him down head foremost
and held him by the ends of his trowsers.
William reports, 'I see bis eyes. Tbey are
wide -apart and big as a silver dollar. 'Olr
says I, 'you are scared.'. 'No, I ain't; I
can see his head, but can't tell his shape.
Take me up I am sick' his position throw
ing the blood to bis head.
So I was put down. Saw his eyes;
saw a little lisjht from the crack: saw it
was no bear. My bead soon suffered like
William's and I was compelled to be drawn
up. nested a little. 1 was again put
down with a stick to move away the loose
rock and widen the crevice. I did so aud
made out the color, the short head, and
great width between the eyes head like a
tiger and color of a doe. 1 could only stay
long enough to note '.bis, and was again
drawn up. Late as it was, and almost bro
ken down as we were, we had a short time
lime to parley. There was but one rlan.
Two must be let down with one sun one
lo hold the gun, and the other to aim and
pull' trigger.
William and 1 went down together,
our weight partly supported by the sides
of the well-like opening, ahd partly by
Henry 's bold on oiu Irowers. 1 bad to
hold the gun upside down and sighted
along the bottom of it, being inverted my
self. All this passed in less time than it
takes to tell you, as it was impossible to en
dure the position long. We got the gun
pointed. 'A little higher, a little moro to
the right. A little higher yet! PullF
The echoes of the cavern made a report like
that of a cannon.
We did not stay down longer than
we could help after firing. Senry pulled
vigorously, and with the aid of our bands
on the rock were soon np. For a little
while we could hear the panther struggling
in his blood. We let down a dog. No
noise followed. Then I was lowered. I
saw the game was dead. I crawled in assoon
could. A barrier of rock obstructed me.
Over this I reached my arm and got mv
finger in his mouth, but could not move
him. Drawn up again, I took my tom-
faawk aod cut some pieces of wood to clear
away the snow. ' This done, we succeeded
in finding a place where the rock to some
extent moved. A pole with a hook at the
end was prepared. This we managed to
to fasten lo his 4iind legs and pulled him
It proved to be a male panther of im
mense size, nine feet and one inch, from
nose to end of tail, fat, and very heavy.
Late as it was, worn out and far from
home as we were, we wished lo canvy him
home bodily. Tried to shoulder him but
failed. We look off the skin with the paws
and scalp, and hung the carcass on a tree.
Henry 6aid 'he had seen the small one es
cape through the rocks beyond.
The following spring some Government
man came along and said be would give me
five dollars to see tha frame of a panther.
We went. lie found all the bones and
put them in a bag and carried them away.
And that s the end of my panther bunt.

An Acorn from the Tomb of
On the 2 2d of February, Gov. Pickens
of South Carolina, (who was recently min
ister to Russia,) made a short address to a
military company in Charleston, in the
course of which he made the following hap
py allusion to the universal respect for
General Washington :
"I remember while in a distant court
Europe, and at the most despotic of all
Governments, that on a memorable occasion
I visited the maguificent gardens that
surround Peterhoff near St. Petersburg.
The gardens and grounds were dedicated
to the enjoyment and peaceful pursuits
the greatest and most brilliant of courts.
On a remote island of tbese magnificent
grounds that had been set aside for the pri
rate eniovmeut and private walks of the
Emper&r and Empress, a tree was pointed
out to me in that garden, cultivated by par
ticular and devoted hands surrounded by
wire wicket work, acd flowers flourishing all
around iu There stood on one branch of
the tree a large brass plate, and on one
side of that plate, in German, and on the
other in Sclavonic, was written, "This
tree was planted in 1839, by Nicholas, from
an acorn that grew near the tomb of Wash
ington. 1 his was the inscription upon
that tree, placed there by one of the most
absolute rulers that ever swayed the sceptre
ot empire. And yet in bis private seclu
ded gardens, be paid this dep and heart
felt tribute lo the memory of the greatest
and purest man the world ever saw.
"He did not take an acorn from near the
tomb of the great Elizabeth: nor did he
lake it from the garden of the Tuilleries
grown in the lime of Louis the XIV; nor
did be take it from the tomb of the
great Napoleon ; nor did be take it from
the garden of the Ctesnrs, near Rome; but
he took an acorn from the tomb of a pure
and mighty man, in the wilds of America,
who had planted the seeds of a govern--menl
consecrated to the freedom and inde
pendence of nations whose every principle
was directly at variance with the principles
of his own "government; and yet so great
were the virtues and integrity of Wnsli-
ino-ton thai even this raishlv monarch, in
private and in secret, paid lo him bis heart
felt and doen tribute. The tree was wat
ered and cnltivated with morn care than
any other tree in that garden. It was
flourishing and green, and 1 trust in God
it will continue to flourish green and fresh
until its branches over-run the civilzed
Strange Incident.
A correspondent relate the following
circumstance to the St. Louis Repablican.
In the early settlement of Denver City
a difficulty arose between two prominent
citizens, which resulted in the sending of a
challenge to fight a duel. The parties met
in deadly conflict. The weapons chosen
were guns, with ounce balls. At first fire
one of the parties fell dangerously wound
ed ; the other escaped unbanned. The in
jured man was conveyed to a hotel where
bis wounds were dressed and cared for by
a young and talented surgeon of the city.
From the effect of that gun-shot wound
the wretched man lingered in great agony
for over a year, helpless and penniless.
The charity of the friends and neighbors
of the unfortunate victim to a most unfor
tunate duel, supplied him wilhall the nec
essaries, ana rendered all tne am in tneir
power lo render him as comfortable as pos
sible under the circumstances. The young
physician was an nlmost constant altendent
upon the sufferings of the poor man, and
ministered to them, well knowing that his
patient was poor and would not be able to
pay him for his services, yet te stood by
mm to Hie last, as a true friend of suffer
ing humanity, and after his patienl was
dead and buried, the young Doctor unex
pectedly found himself heir by will to one
fourth of the estate of the deceased, which
consisted of only a few gold claims in tbese
mines, worth not over a hundred dollars,
not enough to defray the funeral expenses.
Yet the young man. was satisfied he was
conscious of having done bis duty,' and
that to him was a sufficient reward.
Mouths passed away, and it was found
that one of the gold claims belonging to
the estate of the deceased on the Bobtail
Lode was very valuable, and only a few
days since, the heirs received ten thousand
dollars cash for the claim, and ihc deserv
ing young Doctor received his pecuniary
reward of nearly twenty-five hundrd dol
lars, and yet has claims which are located
on rich gold lodes, that are very valuable.
"He cast bis bread upon the waters, and
verity he has his reward.
An Appeal to the Union Men of
the Border States.
The Louisville Journal makes the fol
lowing appeal to the Union men of Ken
lucky. As the Journal was very severe
on the Proclainalion of the President, the
reader may wish to know what advice the
leading Union paper oPKentucky gives lo
those with whom it has been acting. It
"An attempt is now made by the Seces
sionists to lake advantage of that grievous
and inexcusable blunder, Mr. Lincoln's
Proclamation, and hurry our people away
upon the rushing tide of excilemen'. We
advise them to be calm. It is a lime for
deep, stern thoughts, not for loud yells,
and shouts, and huzzas. Men can belter
make up their minds in the silence of sol
emn reflection than in noise, and tumult,
and confusion. If any man, who was not
a Secessionist, has been made a Secession
ist by Mr. Lincoln V Proclamation, be is
guilty of a weakness and imbecility that he
should blush to acknowledge to the world,
or even to himself. Mr. Lincoln is not the
United Stats Government. The Govern
ment, . we hope, will last forever. We
would sooner acknowledge kinship with
nsects and reptiles than permit ourselves
to be driven or influenced by Mr. Lincoln,
or any other officer, into a violatian of pur
allegiance or into an altitude of the Gov
ernment that bas held its broad aegis over
us from our infancy.
"Friends of the Union! we earnestly in
voke each and all of you to stand to your
integrity. If temptation beset you, think
of Washington and Jackson, and Clay, and
all the other mighty patriots whose awful
dust bas mingled with the common dust
of earth, and spurn the tempters behind
you as you would spurn the spirit of per
dition. Be true to your country, true to
yourselves, true to your fathers, true to
your posteaily, and true to God, and all
will soon be wen.

The Guns and Mortars of Fort
Sumter Declared Incapable of
Injuring Charleson.
The Washington corresponent of the
New York Express writes on the evening
of the 7th inst.: "
The distance from Fort Sumter to the
point 'of Charleston which lies nearest lo it
the-Iower end of the lower dock ia s
bout three and ihree-eighths statute miles,
or, more exactly, is 5,940 yards. TBis ex
ceeds the capacity of any known mortar to
throw a shell 1,340 yards. I speak upon
best and highest authority Therefore, if
Major Anderson had in Sumter a mortar
capable of throwing a shell 4,600 yards,
(the largest capacicy of any. mortar) the
shell so thrown would fall short of the near
est point of Charleston 1,340 yards. But
he had no-such mortar.
The largest guns in Tort Sumter are
eight-inch aud ten-inch Columbians. - The
range of the former, or capacity to throw
ball or shell, is 4.800 yards; that of the
that of the latter 5,600 yards. The range
or capacity of the eight-inch Colurabiad is,
therefore, 1,140 yards short of the nearest
point of Charleston, and that of the ten-inch
340 yards. In fact the largest Columbiad
known to our service is but twelve inches,
of which. 1 think, we have but one, and
lhat not at Charleston, wilh a range or
capacity of 5,700 yards 240 yards leas
than the distance between Fort Sumter
and Charleston.
Had Sumter been provided with the effec
tive gun for great distances, with which it
was possible lo have furnished it Dahl--green's
rifled cannon made on hand at the
Navy-yard here, it would have been possi
ble for Anderson not only to have thrown
balls to Charleston, but into the city,
aud, if necessary, quite over it. Tests have
established the superiority of range of this
cannon over every other. Its limit is not
less than five miles.
But no such wisdom has marked the ad
ministration of the War and Navy Depart
ments as was necessary to render ihem ca
pable of answering demands that might be
made for service in connection with one or
the other. Hence in that great and impor
tant fortification, Fort Sumter, there is not
one rifled cannon and, therefore, there is
no power therein to throw shell or ball
therefrom to or into Charleston. Fort Sum
ter can not, then, visit any direct scourge
upon Charleston, either in return for an at
tack by the secession forces, or any other
cause, v impossiDie, is we repiy to ev
ery intimation of the sort.
