I have a rofe, indcd rose,
Sweeter thin cy fairer flower;
It will not bud where zephyr blows;
It will net freshen in the shower.
Where is the giver? Ohl where?
I have a gunny tress of hair,
Fair was tho brow o'er which it waved;
Undimmed by TiTr.e, unchanged by care,
A tl.ir.jr that love for mem'ry saved.
"Where's the wearer? Oh! where?
I have a heart a lonely heart,
O'er which at evening btealinjr comes
A voice that bi.s the tear-drop stmt,
As through the past fond uieru'ry roams.
Where is the eakci I Oh! where?
And breathing sweet, and low and soft,
As summer winds o'er banks of bloom,
Througn all my penrdve being waft,
And woo me to a cloudless home.
Where is the breather? Oh! where?
The hand that pave that faded rose;
Tho brow where waved that sunny hair.
The voice that well my spirit k-.ows,
And breather, safe in He:. von are.
There is the lot one oh, therel
I soon shall clasp that friendly hand;
I soon shall kiss that anael brow;
Forgetting, in thatMinny land,
Sorrows thut cliill my spirit t ow.
There thai I 1 greet thee oh, there!
We'll range the flai ls of azure blue;
We'll know no sorrow, yrief nor pain,
We'll sip ot love's immortal dew,

Iso more saduss -ever there!
Then welcome to th; friendly dart.
Welcome! the winding heel and sod,
Uniting faithful heart to heart,
To be forever mr- with Cod.

It waa simple t ken.
This gift of long ago;
And when the vow was i-poket.,
My heart knew not of woe.
1 thought all life wuspladnes.
And mine a path of light;
1 never dreamed that madness
Cotild bring a shroud to blight.
It was a cherished token,
This plain, Out long-worn ring;
But now his vow is broken,
It is a wortLle.-s thing.
I woro it in life's brightness
When sunny v as iny brow,
When oil wasjry and brightness
1 cannot wear it now.
It seemed a gift of kindness;
I thought its language true;
1 took it in my blindness,
For I no wrong then knew.
For long, long years I'd worn it,
This ring that brought its blight,
But from my hand I've turned it,
And bidden it from sight.
It was a simple token,
Yet bore a weight of care;
A vow that has been broken;
A cloud to mask the fair.
1 Lave a dread of jewels;
All arc not gifts of love,
They sometimes gleam and sparkle,
Yet oft a poison prove.

CurioiiH, but True.
I wish to relate an incident which cannot
fail o in'erest your mercanfle readers
One of the oldest and most respectable
and wealthy merchants of Lroiisville, Kv ,
who has buen in business h re lor over 30
years, was a few davs since called upon by
a gentleman who 24 J ypar ago givo his
note f -r -5420 CO, and now deird to take it
up with interest. The whole amount, add-
ins interest at G per cent, per annum,
amour ted to $1,028 G2. The piyment was
most unexpected , and the Louisville mer-
chant says was 'a pleasing incident, and the
onlv one of the kind that has occurred witb
me during a continuous nus.ness in Liouis- age by putting enougn eggs under the hatcii
ville (and within CO feet of the same spot) way.
for 30 years.'
However, he had the curiosity to figure
up the result, and ascertain how much gold
his debt would produce at the present de
preciated rate of our currency, and found,
that at 257 for gold, the payment of 1,-
028 62 would give only $400 24r, or 20 36 ,
lets money than the amount loaned 2ij j
years ago. -To again use words of the j
"The man was honest and wanted to pay
bis just debts with accumulated interest, but
the result shows that he had my money
nearlv a quarter of a centnrv, at 6 per cent
interest, and finally legally discharged the
debt, while I lose Ihe use of my money and
about 5 per cent, of the principal. A curi
ous incident of the times.' II. V. N.

The Most Beautiful Hand. Two
charming women were discussing one day
what it is which constitutes beauty in the
band. Tbey differed in opinion as much
as in the beautiful members whose merits
tbey were discussing. A gentleman friend
presented himself, aod by common consent,
the question was referred to him. It was a
delicate matter. Ue thought of Paris and
the three goddesses. Glancing from one to
the other ot the beautiful white hands pre
sented for bis examination, he replied at
last: 'I g've it UP tne question is too hard
forme; but ask the poor, and they will tell
you that the most beautiful hand ;.n the
world is the hand that gives.'
A Noble Sentiment. Some true heart
gives expression to its generous nature in
the following beautiful sentiment:
'Never desert a friend when enemies gath
er around him when sickness falls on the
heart when the world is dark and cheer
less is the time to try a true friend. They
who tura from the scene of distress, betray
their hypocrisy, and proves that interest
moves them. If you have a friend who
loves you and studies your interest aud hap
piness, be 6ure to sustain him in adversity.
Let him feel that his love is not thrown
away. Real fidelity may be rare; but it ex
Ut9 in the heart. Who has Dot seen and fait
the power? They deny its worth who nev

he now has a very fine crop. Soma parties i

refused by our shrewd onion farmer. On-

Gcii. McClcllan's LetteYof Acceptance'
OitAxcB, X. J , September 3.
Gextlemex : I have the honor to acknowl
edge tho receipt of your letter, informing
of my nomination by tho Democratic Nation
al Convention, recently assembled at Chicago,
as the candidate at the next election for tho"
Presidency of tho United States. It is nnneo
essary for me to. say to you that this nomina
tion comes to mo unsought. I am happy to
know that when tho nomination was made,
tho record of my public life was kept in
view. Tho effect of long and varied servictf
in the army during war and peace, has been ttf
strengthen and make indelible in my mitd
and heart, the love androvei-ence for tho Ur.
ion Constitution, laws and flag of our oountry
impressed upon me in early youth.
These feelings have thus far gnided tl.S
course of my life, and must continue to do bo"
until its end. The existence of more than ono
government over tho region which once owned
our Hag i3 incompatible with the peace, tho
power and the happiness of the people. Tho
preservation of our Union was tho sole avow
ed object for which the war was commenced
It should have been conducted for that object
only, and in accordance with thoso principles
which 1 took occasion to declare when in ac
tive service. Thus conducted, the work of re
conciliation would have been easy, and wo
might have reaped the benefits our many vie
tones oa land and sea.
The Union was originally formed by the ex
istence of a spirit of conciliation and compro
mise. Torestore and preserve it the same spirit
must prevail in our councils and in the hearts
of the people. The re-establishment of the
Union iu all its interests must continue to be
the indispcnsiblo condition in any settlement;
Ho soon as it is clear, or even probable, that
our present adversaries are ready for peace
upon the basis of the Union, we should ex
haust all tho resources of statesmanship prac
ticed by civilized nations, and taught by the
traditions of the American people, consistent
with the honor and interests of the country,
to secure such peace, re-establish the Union,
and guarantee for the future the constitutional
rights of every State. The Union is the only
condition of peace. We ask no more. Let mo'
ask, -what I doubt not was, although unexpress
ed, the sentiment of the Convention, as it is
of the people they represent, that when"any
one State is willing to return to the Union, ifr
should be met at once wit'i a full guarantes of
ail its constitutional rights. If a frank, ear
nest and persistent effort to obtain these object?
should fail, the responsibility for ulterior con
sequences will fall upon those who remain irl
arms against the Union, but the Union must be'
preserved at all hazards. I could not look int
the face of my gallant comrades of the army
aud navy, who served with mo in bo many
bloody battles, and tell them that their labors
and the sacrifice of so many of our slain and
wounded brethren had been in vain; that we
had abandoned thai Union for which we havo
so often periled our lives.
A vast majority cf our people, whether in
the army and navy or at home, would, as I
would, hail with unbounded joy the permanent
restoration of peace on the basis of the Union
under the Constitution without the effusion of
another drop of blood ; but no peace can be5
permanent without Union.
As to the other subjects presented in tne?
resolutions of the Convention, I need only eajr"
that I should seek in the Constitution of the'
United States, and the lavrs framed in accor-
dance therewith, tho rule of my duty and the"
limitation of executive power, endeavor to re
stora economy in public expenditures, re-ea-'
tablish the supremacy of our laws by theop
oration of a vigorous nationality, and resume"
our commanding position among the nation's1
of the earth. The condition of our finances.-
!i . i - I. . . ,i ...
Th? riglit and tho binding authority of law
over tho President, the army and people, ara'
subjects of not los3 vital importance in war"
than in peace. Believing that the views here'
expressed are those of tho Convention and the
people you represent, I accept the nomination
I realize tho weight of the responsibility to be
borne, should the people ratify your eboice.-'
Conscious of my own weakness, lean' only
seek fervently the guidance cf tho Ruler ot
the Universe, and relying on His all-powerful
aid, do the best to restore Union and peace to
a suffering people, and to establish and guard
their liberties and rights:
1 am, gentleman, very respectfully, yoai'
