lVebar, a 3edoula of noble heart,
That from all men received of praise the fee,
Owned a brave horse, with which he would cot peat,
Because from death he once had run bhi free.
The man and beast were friends, and it is vice
To sell our friend or friendship for a price.
The horse was flack and eCMeg. his step was proud;
His neck was arched, his ear alert ter sound;
fles speed the tempest's, and his mans a cloud;
Iis boots woke thunder from Wie desert ground;
IMe eyes flashed lightning freem their Inmost core;
Victor of Distance was th3 name he bore.
Daher, a Bedoaln of another tribe,
Had often wished to bey this famous beast;
And as he smoked, and heard his friends describe
its comely parts and powe,, the wish increased;
But Nebar said the hore should not be sold,
Though ofered wealth In camels and in gold.
Then Daher put on rags, and stained his face,
And went to wait for Nebar, seeming lame,
Him soon lie saw approach with daring pses
L pou the envied hore, sad as be cams
Its cried tu fia., "For thres days on this spot
Have I lain starring; pity me my lot."
And seci ca Nchar stop, said on, "I die-
My strength is gone " Down Nebar spreag,
And raised him gently, with a pitying sigh,
And set him on his horse. A laugh outrang,
And !Daber shouted as he plunged his spurs,
" Fair price refused, one sells at last for burrs."
"Stay! stay I" cried Nebar; Daher paused to hear:
'since Heaven has willed that you my beast should
I wish you joy; but tell no man, for fear
Another who was really starved might make
Appeal In vain, for some. remembering me,
Would fail to do an act of charity."
Oh, sharp as steel to Dsher seemed remorse,
lie panwed a moment, thL. sprang upon the ground.
And with bowed bead b'ought Nebar back his horse;
And taling on his honest breast, he wound
Ills amsa about his neck for true amends,
And ever afterwaid the two were friends.
It all of us, whene'er we suffer wrong,
Sbould bear It mildly, since God wills it so,
Nor lend ourspeech to auger, like the song
The morning stars sang life would peas below;
For he who lightly draws the sword of wrath,
Wounds most himself, and crowds with strde his
pah r .s the Galasy, February.
The 014O Canoo.
The following beautiful poem appeared som years
ago In an obscuse Arkansas paper:
Where the rocks are gray and the sohea is steep,
And the water below looks dark and deep.
Where the rugged plas to Its lonely pride,
Leans gloomily over the murky tMe;
Where the reeds sad rushes are long and rank,
And the weeds grow thick ata the winding bank;
Where the shadow is heavy the whole day through,
Lies at its moorings the old canoe.
The useless paddies are Idly dropped,
Like a sea-bird's wings that the storm has lopped,
And crossed on the railing one o'er one,
Like the folded hands when the work is dens;
While busily back and forth between,
The spider stretches his silvery screen,
And the solemn owl with his doll "too-hoo4"
Settles down on the side of the old canoe.
The stern half soak in the slimy wave,
RWts slowly away to its living grave;
And the green moss creeps o'er its dull decsy,
Hliding Its moulderlig dust away
Like the hand that plants o'er the tomb a owver,
Or the ivy that mantles the falling tower;
While many a blossom of levellest has
Springs up o'er the stern of the old canoe.
Tbacaurentless waters are deed and st0il
Set the light wind plays with the boat at will,
And lazily In and out again
It hoats the length of the rusty ehala.
Like the weary march of the hands of time,
That meet and part at the noontide chime;
And the shore Is kissed at each turning maew,
By the dripping bow of the old esane.
0, amwy a time, with a careless hand,
I have pushed it away from the pebbly strand,
And paddled it down where the stream rens gulh,
Where the whirls are wild andthesddleserethick,
And leaughedsal leaned o'er the roching sile,
And looked below in the broken tide,
T'o see that the faces sad boats were two,
That were minored back from the old soes.
But now, as! lean o'er the crumbling side
And look below in the sluggshe tide,
The face that lIss thers Is graver grewn,
And the laugh that!I hear has a soberer tone;
And the hands that lent to the i~ght skitf wings
Have grown familiar with sterner things.
But I love to think of the hours that Sew
As I rock'd whereth' whirls theirltight spray threw,
3m the blossom waved or the green grass grew
aOer the moulderlug stern of the old canoe.

It was our fortune a few days since to get
in the cr(wd wending their way to one of
the President's receptions.
"DAI" ATTraDs A s cITIO*.
None can form a just conception of this
pub& AsuI-haAneag withoet going through
the ordal. Of course everybody in Wash
ingtou goes at least once (while others at
tend regularly) to see the President amid all
the diversities of human nature. On each
Thursday evening, PeNnsylvania Avenue
street-cars, carriages and sidewalks are illeS
with town beauties, with turned-updreases,
with powdered hair, under strange-looking
hoods-presentingvery muck the appearance
of a huge bundle of blankets protecting
the thinly-dressed fcrms. In the vestibule
the array of low cut vests and light kids
aiwpp-r.s'o 1kw senses* aemeug-awuim, where
silks and laces abound, is a feature The
entry Is the embodiment of humor and fun;
even though packed and jammed to reple
tion, so much so that escorts looking for
partners stand on tip-toe against the wall,
on the lookout for lost bundles of "dry
goods"-is a good stand-point for admiring
snow white shoulders and well-defned
form. After passing through the Red to
the Blue Room, you suddenly And plenty
of space. Passing along before the grave
form of General Michier, you soon grasp
the hand of the President. Mrs. Grant, in
her Paris ilMac with crape and point lace;
Mrs. General Dent, a keen, dark-eyed, thin
woman; Miss Dent; a young Miss Grant in
rose-colored silk, with Miss Nellie Grant,
the pet of the White House, gliding in and
out, presents a tableau worthy of a better
description than we have space to give. We
pass on, jostling with citisessand strangers,
native and foreign, high and low, rich and
poor, each perhaps wondering what pleas
ure there is in seeking the hospitality of the
White House under suehcircuhmstaces,even
though they may not have come out with
whole raiment or no sensitive twinges in
the region of ribs and toes, many of whom
do not most assuredly.
T3 GOmLD comas.
The gold-gambling committee (Banking
and Currency) have taken voluminous tes
timony respecting the September gold panic
-reaching over 2,000 pages-In which the
President, Mrs. Grant and all the govern
ment omclals are exonerated from any ac
tion or interest-even without the usual
white-washing process on evidence-bot
Messrs. ButterAcld and Corbin seem Impli
cated, both of whom, it is reported, will be
exposed in connection with the ever-memo
rable Friday. It is shown that Mrs. G. and
Gen. Porter (the Presldent's Ieretary) were
offered half a million for their indeuece
with the President to prevent Secretary
Boutwell from selling gold, both of whom
promptly refused to have anything to do
with the matter. The report of this com
mitte will expose much of the menoeaver
lugs of the "Gold Ring" and dodges of the
"corner," all of which will be interesting
to the public.
The House Military Committee, In their
examlnation of the sale of Cadetships by
members, promises soms rich, rare and spicy
developments, showing how some of our
poorly paid legislators manage to tarn a
penny to the $5,000 paid them by this un
grateful Repubile. As every me. knows,
the law provides that Cadets shall be taken
from districts where they have been raised.
The evasion is by moving applicants to cer
tain districts for the time actually equired,
when he isadaitted, the member pocketing
$600 for his fraudulent oflossIa the matter.
'Tis said these men are known, and will be
brought to testify of their Cadet brokerage
rats scramaes count nsaomo.
A bombshell is thrown into ianacial ir
eles by the late decision of Chief Justime
Chase, that all debts contracted prior to the
issuing of greenbacks shall be paid in gold
-better now then then, in view of the gold
premiems them and now. We give the Cols
lowing table showing the debts of the sev
eral Stites prior to the passage of legal ten
der act, and falling under this decision:
