It whs a grand day in the old chivalric times, the circling around the hoard in a noble hall, and the sculntured walls rang witli sentiment and song. The lady of each knightly heart was pledged hy name and many a syllable significant of loveli ness had been uttered, until it came to St, Leon’s turn, when lifting the sparkling cup on high: “I drink to one," ho said, ' “Whose image never may depart. I Deep graven on a groatful heart; Till memory is dead. ]To one whese love for shall lust , When lighter passions long have passed, So holy ’lis and true ; 1 To one whose love has longer dwelt, More deeply fixed, more keenly felt I Than any pledged hy you.” Each guest upstarted at the word, 1 And Said a hand upon his sword, 1 With fiery flashing eyes; And Stanley said, “We crave the name, i Proud knight, of th's most peerless dame, Whose love you count so high.” St. Leon paused, as if he would Not breathe her name m careless mood, Thus lightly to another; Then bent his noble head as though To give that name the reverence due, And gently said, "My Mother.” Mother ! How sweetly and gently falls this : name upon the oar of many! When she has gone to the spiiit-land we I seem to hear her silver-toned voice ; singing some delightful melody, or j telling the “sweet sloty of old” until childish sorrows aro forgotten and the little one has strayed to the land of j dreams. i Can any one fathom a mother’s ' love? It is the only love without j selfish motive. There is no friend* ! ship so pure. In the storms of adver | sity, and the sunshine of prosperity I all is alke to her. Does a mother ever cease to love her erring child? No, it matters not how unworthy we may be of that love. Though shame brand our I blows ami friends forsake, she clings I to us. It is her gentle, soothing voice that brings the misguided one back to the path of virtue and honor. It is her kind hand that smoothes the pillow of pain and wipes the damp that, gathers on our brows. The memory of a mother’s love and kindness will continue with ns till lile’s weary pilgrimage shall cease. Let ns look at the characters of the mothers of our great men : The mother of Washington was pious, pure and true. Sir Walter Scott’s mother was a superior woman, well educated, and a great lover ol poetry and painting. Byron’s mother was proud, ill-tempered and violent. The mother of Napoleon Bonaparte was noted for her beauty and energy. Lord Bacon’s mother was a woman of superior mind and deep piety. The mother of Nero was a murderess. The mother of Patrick Henry was marked by her grand conversational powers. John Wesley’s mother was noted lor her intelligence, piety and executive ability, so that she has been called “the mother of Methodism.” Observe that in each example the sons inherited the prominent traits of the mother, for Emerson says—“A man is what his mother makes him.” Benjamin West when a boy made a rough sketch of his infant sister asleep in the cradle. His mother saw ge nius, and perhaps skill, in the picture, and with maternal pride kissed her boy. “That kiss," said the renowned artist, “made me a painter.” If some other mothers would take a like in terest in their boys they might make of them, if not painters, good, noble men. A perfect woman, nobly planned To warn, to comfort, and command; And yet a spirit still, aud bright Willi something of an nugel light. I have no doubt when Wordsworth ! penned those lines he glanced back over the past and the face of his ! mother came before him. Dickens ' has said he thinks it must somewhere j j bo written that the virtues of the mothers shall occasionally be visited ! upon their children as well as the ' sine of the fathers. But as a general | thing it takes a vast number of a j mother's virtues to expiate a father's | sins. How little do we appreciate a mo ther while living, but when she is | ; gene beyond our reach, and the cares j end ooh’ueas cf the wcrld come, with- j I ering our hearts, when we find how ; few love us for ourselves; how hard it is to find true sympathy, then wo think of the mother we have lost. Science has sometimes tried to teach us that if a pebble be cast into a sea, from any shore, the efieots are felt, though not perceived by man, over the whole area of the ocean. She also tries to show us that the effect of all the sounds ever uttered by man or beast, or caused by inanimate things, are still floating in the air ; that its present state is the result of all these sounds. If these things be true can not we say the same of a mother’s power—the effects of which will gtielch into Eternity and operate there forever either in sorrow or i“ A mother's love! a fadeless light That glimmers o’er our weary way ; A star amid the clouds of night, An ever burning, quenchless ray. Jacquetta. Political AJ}’alrs at the Capital. Washington, I>. C., Aug. Ki, 1882. To the Mining Journal : The first session of the 47th Con gtees has ended and passed into his tory. Ita merits and demerits will be a fruitful theme during the coming campaign, but I will not attempt a discussion of them in this letter. Of the Maryland • members, Covington will be renominated. He is a clever gentleman and a good representative, but an unfortunate attack of erysipe las, from which he has not yet en tirely recovered, unfitted him fer duty during his first session in Con gress. Talbot, in the second district, as I before intimated, will also be renom inated. In the third, Hoblitzell has some opposition but expects to be again the nominee in accordance with democratic usage. Chapman is in (he same category, but his election will he no sure thing, owing to party troubles, especially in Anne Arundel county. It was not the desire of MoL'ine to be again a candidate in the fourth district and he so an nounced early in the spring, but the leading men of Baltimore will not allow him to retire from a position in which he has gained so many laurels and reflected so much credit and honor upon hia constituents. His services upon the floor of Congress and in committees have been inces sant and of inestimable value not cn'.y to his city and State but to the country at. large. He is very popu lar among hia colleagues of all par ties and has almost unbounded influ ence with them. Hia ripe and varied experience in public aflairs cause him to be consulted at all times, aud his views to be held in high esteem. The loss of ouch a man to the national legislature would indeed be a public calamity, but I am gratified to know that no such disaster is likely to happen in the early future. I may not be considered an impartial writer in matters concerning him, but my statements will be endorsed by all who know him or have noted his public career. In spite of the studied attempt of the Baltimore American to “count him out,” Mr. Urner is still in the field of choice and doubt less will, as he should, be renominated. He is one of the ablest among the re publicans in the house, and has led his party on to victory in two suc cessive campaigns. For the sake ol that party in Congress he sacrificed his chances for the Chief Judgeship in his district, a position which he could have secured without doubt. In him the sixth district has to-day the most potent republican leader in the State, one who has great political possibilities before him, and it would indeed be a harsh act should his jiarty associates at this particular period in his career do anything that would re sult in his overthrow. In the present condition of affairs in the republican party in Maryland a failure to renom inate Mr. Urner would mean this and nothing more. As ho has committed no crime against his party, that I have beard of, but has been a faithful leader and repiesentative I presume the republicans of the sixth district nave no inlontio is to sacrifice him j now, and, therefore, it is that in this ' section his renomination is considered ' a foregone conclusion. I The result of the coming election is | involved in doubt, although both po j iitical parties scorn sanguine of sue i ce , s . With the new issues of tariff j and revenue reform the masses are not sufficiently familiar, as I think, i else t he chances would point eraphati- j cully to a democratic victory at large, j But so mrny local issues, such as Mahoneism, Prohibition, Reform, the labor troubles, etc., are at stake, that the general result is involved in con siderable doubt. I hope to hear of the difficulties between the miners and the companies in All gany soon and justly compromi ,ed. My sym- I athies are altogether with (he f r mor and I sincerely trust that their rights and interests will be respected. Anon. MISCELLANEO US. THE BALTIMORE ORIOLE. Perfecting a Programme of the most Unique and Brilliant Character, Partie,'pulton of Hint/ Rex, Mourns. Mystic Knave, Veiled Prophets and other noted Mystic Oryanlxu tions. The Oriole festivities next month in Baltimore promises a programme that in unique and brilliant futures has never been paralleled before in the country. Indeed it may bo said that "promise” is hardly a strong enough word, as preparations have been so far completed as to insure a success that will surprise visitors and residents alike. An enormous amount of work has been completed, and on two different times the build ing where the pageant is being con structed has had to be gre.it ly en larged. The experience Baltimore had last year in the way ol pageau's will be profited by this year to a striking extent. Instead of contract ing with any one man for its produc tion and construction, it has been en tirely in tho hands of a committee of Baltimore citizens—active and ejjpr getic men—who have given the greater portion of their time to the work for months past. The general manager is a gentleman of very large experience in Southern cities in de signing, perfecting and placing upon the streets night displays of this char acter. With him have been associated artists also of largo experience in the construct! on, painting and decorating ol floats, and the work already ac complished is a surprise even to those intimately conntcted with it. The pageant is upon Thursday Night, September 14th, i.d tii Oriole portion of it will consist ol tw grand divisions, the most extensive display of the kind ever attempted by any one organization in the United States. The first division of tho pageant wid be a memor.ble ore, us 11 will display representative floats of the oldest and most famous of the Mystic Organizations of the country. Indeed the division will include Table aux Cars by all the Mystic Organizations of the South and West. There will be Rex and his Court from New Orleans, Comas and his Crewe, Mo mus and his Knights, and the Knights of Proteus, all of New Or leans. The Veiled Prophets of St Louis ; the Memphii of Memphis ; Momus and his Knights of Galveston; the Cowbellians, Infant Myths and Strikers of Mobile. The long experience that these or ganizations have had in display cf this character, and the brilliant r p utation (he- hold all ovo- tho country for maivelous effects, wid bo nior: than eclipsed iu Baltimore in xt month, as while the competition among them to make the grandest display is of the moat friendly nature, still they will all strive to outdo one another in gorgeous etieots. The festivities open on Tuesday, tho 12th, with a military parade, followed by a competitive drill which will undoubt edly provo one of the most notable of military events. The competitive drill is open to all States, and already a number of acceptances received from crack organizations assures a competition which cannot but prove of the liveliest interest. The second days festivities will be of a unique and striking description, embracing as they will the reception of Oecilius, Lord of Baltimore, after an absence of 250 years. King Charles the First gave to Cecilias all of the territory i now embraced in tho Slate of Mary i land as well as much of that embraced ! n the District of Columbia and the I state of Virginia. Lord Baltimore ! will arrive on one of the largest i steamers at tho foot of Broadway, and 1 will be received by a pageant ae ! novel as it will be brilliant. Ail the J local military as well as from sixteen to eighteen visiting companies will j participate as will also all tho uni formed societies of the city, tho I ire and Police Depaitumnis, and all Vv HOLE M MBKH, 570 municipal organizations. The imme diato body-guard of Lord Baltimore will be a cavalcade of mounted cour tiers Bupsrby mounted, costumed and ail closely masked. With Cecilius, will bo King Rex, Genius, Morons, Memphis, Veiled Prophets and other high dk niti’ies. The leading busi ness houses of the city will display representative tableaux, and tho parade upon the whole will be ono long to be remembered. Every preparation has been made for the accommodation of visitors to Baltimore upon this occasion and she will rpread herself ns never before.

The details for tho prompt and rapid transit of Ihe im mense number of people who will go over the road to Baltimore have all been perfected and special trains will be run and no trouble deemed too great to insure the satisfaction of all parties.
