Sliort ns the pronont is, it is ns broail its tho universe! It smiles 011 land mid son. on prairie, mountain rind desert, mid it reaches away up to Heaven! And now as I muse by my window this bright moonlight eve, my thoughts tiro wondering back over the past, and though long, I think how short is the time since I was a little romping, thoughtless child nt school 1 Where nnd how nre situated nil those little, ones that then roved the fields with nic? They are nil grown up and scattered, or slumbering in their graves. Many of them me married, nnd are tho happy hus bands and wives of loving companions, the proud parents of prattling little ones, the industrious citizens of flourishing communi ties, the piopictors of pleasant farms, the mistresses of happy homes! They arc set lied and they are happy; they live to enjoy 1 fc they live because there is an object worth living for! May their lives be pro tracted and their pros; ects never blighted. Others again, are still ploddirg on "in single bliss'." They, too, have seasons of joy they ate laboring in searih of some thing nobler than mete food and ra'ment they are seeking the goodly peail which a waits the diiligenl. They labor and wait and live, because they fancy they enjoy life. Poor fellows! very few of tin m have homes of their own. AVhcn the lain pells, or the or the snow drifts, it is not their roof that protects. Yt hen wearied and discouraged willi the labors of the day when beset with thick-coming troul les, it is not their bed on which they resl; and, when overtak en by care and sickness, it is only the hand of a friend that holds the aching head, or screens the painful light; only a friend thai peaks wordu of comfort to the troubled heart; only a friend who answers the thous andth call. There is no "dear, second-self" to hover round, watching the feble breath and consoling the desponding spirits no doubly interested companion, seeing their necessities before asked seeing, feeling and relieving, because loving you! Poor fellows, you have my sympathy! Among those who used to "chase with me the flying hours," many have left "this vale of tears," and taken up their abode "beyond the skies." Among this number there was one litllo boy, with bright eyes, jetty curls, niery voice and elastic step. lie was an orphan child; but his adopted father was proud of the promising son. lie wan cherished as a real rou; and the fond care of the father was not in vain. The son tried to rcpivy the kindness by obedience and love to tho father. At school, too.l Uk Eddie was the pride and joy of Inn fticiids. "He ran swiftly in the ways of knowledge," his lessons were always mastered; and as he grew older, his friends began to hope that ho would lie a brighter star in the literary sky. After a time, ui fell u victim to a fa tal malady. His mind grew shattered, and hiy reason fled ! Many times have I seen him as ho sauntered over field and wood with his dog and irv.n, "like one deranged!" 'Twas sad, indeed, to see that form, so late !y full of buoyant hope, now "like a shadow, slowly flitting by." 'Twas sad, too, to hear that hollow, grave-like voice, and remember that it was so lately "full of flute-like musie." Out death came, at last, and now a neat little stone is all (hat tells the tale gone home! There was another bright little boy that I remember. They called him Johnny. Ho was younger than I by some years; but for some unknown reason or other, lie took a particular liking to n:c. Every day he would give me an apple or n peach, and he would always lend me his book or slate or knife, if he thought I wanted it. Still, kind as he was to me, I was too selfish to return his kindness. I would always do my best to shun him at playtime, and often refuse him tho least favor ho would ask. How 1 ever managed to be so cruelly selfish has id ways been a mystery, to me! And now, while I am musing at my window, where is Johnny? Johnny was absent from school one morn ing, rather a rare thing for him. I thought little of it then, only to rejoice that I would not be bothered by his questions. How cruel ! Next day Johnny was absent again, and again ! It was on the afternoon of the seventh day a bright Autumnal afternoon that my mother ermo in, walked up to the bed nnd laying oil' her shawl, Raid to me "Poor Johnny is dead I" All, how those words shot through my soul ! I was not prepared to hear such tidings. Presently she went on to tell bow much he had Mifi'ei ed, how much ho had talked to his mother about his f.choo! his playmates, teacher, books and play; and most of all how he hud talked of me, and wondered, anil wondered again, why I didn't come to see him while he was so sick? Here my mother paused a moment, and wiped away a tear, for she knew that I was not as kind to little Johnny as ho was to me ; and then went on to tell how tho litt!o sufferer had wanted to get well that he might come back to school and see me! This was more than I could bear I burst into tears, and breathed a pruyev not from lips, but from my heart that if Cod would forgive mo this one time, I never would again unkindly use another trusting little one. Tho next day, while t'.ie soft wind was sighing, and the evening sun fast Btooping to the western groves, they laid this loving little one away to rest, where the violet blosoms and tho turtle dove sii gi, when tho spring day is ended! Our dear kind teacher, who used so care fully to lead tho trusting lambs, continued to pursue his Christian mission for a time; but when tho autumn winds howled through tho naked groves and whirled tho withered leaves in tiio eddies over the brown fallows, ho too bill adieu to those he loved; and now II beuutiiul willow waves its branches above hit give 1 As for myself, what shall 1 buyV Htill hoping) still trusting; still dreaming of STILLA R—. Maumee City, August, 16, 1861. THE YOUNG REBEL, OR A Tale of the Carolinas. BY J. MILTON SANDERS. In a small farm house, toward the c!o.e if the veur 1 Tt-0. fat an old man. his wile and only son. The face of the fuMior up peared troubled; at t:ines he looked thought fully on the floor, and then he would gaze long ami wistfully at his son, a lino m.uily youth of twenty. At length he snid: I'uvul, tins in disastrous uews lrom l mil lion, llod knows what will become of the country now! Congress needs every arm that is capable an! me. 1 wish tins old wound that I cot in the French war ha I no! lamed me, but for it, I should now be shoul dering my musket, and inarching to uelciid my com try.' Iloth the son and wi:c looked up at these words. The old ladv ceased kn.lting, and gazed iiHiuirngly at her boy, and it was ev ident lrom the express 0:1 ol Iter face, that patriotism an l motherly affection were at variance in her bosom. Tlie son, however. alter cncountoi ing his father's eve for a moment, turned eonfusedlv away, The old mini's brow darkeno.!, una ho said warning ly: 'David, P avid, why do you linger about (he village when your t'ountry needs your services so much? Twice before have 1 -1 o'.en to votl upon this subject, but you ap; ear to have no spirit ! What, will you see us trampled upon by the im roorar.es 0: lirilain, and still lie here supinely? For shame, David for shame! 1 will not call you my sou. Long sit co yii ought to have been in the a my,' 'Joshua, Joshua,' interpored the old moth er, 'David is but a youth, then do not speak to him so harshly, llecannoi iVel w hat you feel, who have louht to o ten a. iiinst your country's en; niies. Joshua, he is but a hoy.' 'A boy indeed, Deborah ! such boys ie David have already ga'ned imperishable laurels since the war commenced. I can name a host of them. whv, were it not I'm tlie boys of tin's laud, where would bo our army, which 1 dare say is composed ol' boys of David's age?' The old man wan excited, and it was the first unkind word he ha 1 ever used to his boy, David 10.se and Icil the house, lie walk ed some distance apparently in deep tho't. 'What will not woman do?' he at length said, 'here 1 have been lingering about, the village when 1 should have been otf long ago. And for what! why t meet a protiy girl and linten to her musical voice : but now 1 will be niynelf again. What did he call me? was it not a coward? Now, by Heaven, I will learn him that he hiu a son with the spirit of his lather. Away then with love, for I feel that I am cid'ed upon 10 act, and 110 longer dream. lire a fort night, my father shall hear of me or else 1 lose my life in striving for it.' And with resolution he turned about and retraced his steps. When he reached homo he nought the stables, struck into a gallop, which contin ued for several miles. At length he stop ped and looked up to the windows of a farm house half hid between clustering trees. This wan the resiih nee of .Mary Ihtiiker. the m'stroR.s of his heart; the dhis showed that the family had not yet retired, and he resolved to pay her a visit before bis de- artiire. She was alone when he entered, and a few words acquainted her of his de termination, r-he burst into tears. 'Nay, Mary,' he said", 'you must r ot unman me. At first I resolved to leave on with out a farewell, for 1 knew how ou dreaded my taking part in this si niggle. JJut 1 could not be so cruel as to desert you with out a word.' '1 will compose myself,' said the fair girl, with an effort to snide. '1 know 1 have been wrong to persuade you to stay, but you cannot imagine the anxiety 1 suiter on account of my brothers, and I could not hear to have you too encounter their dan ger. l!ut since this dreadful defeat at Cam den, 1 feel that every man is wanted by our country. (Jo, then, dearest, and (lod be with you. My prayers shall attend you night and day. David pressed the now weeping girl to his bosom, snatched a hasty kiss at the sound of approaching footsteps, wrung her hand and was gone. The next day ho left tho neighborhood of his father's hoube, armed With a musket, and mounted on a sturdy horse. His desti nation was the American camp, then far to the northward, but as the intervening coun try was tilled with the enemy, he knew there would be considerable address re quired to effect his purpose. Defore his departure, he saw a lew of his old playmates who promised to follow him us soon as pos sible. Night found him near a lonely farm hour.e to winch ho proceeded boldly iu search of lodgings. At first the occupant received him coldly, but a chance expression con vinced David that his host was a tory ; he affected the same political creed, and was immediately warmly welcomed. The roy alist produced his cider lifter supper, and insisted that David should join him in his potations ; this the young man did, taking care, however, not to indulgo too freely; while the former, overjoyed to find wl at he supposed a new recruit for his parly, drank without stint, and became more and more and nioro communicative. To lus horror, David soon learned that a party of royalists, led by a .Major Wilson, celebrated for his toryisiu, was to start early the ensuing day on an expedition to seize and hang the two liunkeis, who had made theiut.civcH partic ularly obnoxious to tho royalist leaders. David knew enough of this parliznii warfare 1 1 be assured that no mercy would bo shown io his friends; he knew enough of tho char acter of the Major to suKpict that some strong personal motive ha I led to the plan ning of so d;stant an expedition, when thei 0 were others as inviting nearer home, lie accordingly set himself to discover from his inebriate companion the liuth. It was not long before (success crowned his adroit cross examination. 'Why, you see,' said his host, 'I believe there's a httlo revengo far a blight received from thexo fellows' sister, mixed up with (ho Major's desire to catch the Hunkers. The girl is very pretty, th"y say, and the Major when she was down lure on a visit last year before the war got so bloody wanted to many her, but sho would have nothing to say to him, liver siuco ho has vowed to make her ruo the day. You may depend upon it, he will have her on his own tonus now thank heaven! theie's no law any longer to prevent an honest loyalist lrom doing as ha pl jaacs to liioso rascally rebels. Hut yonder is the Major, now,' sud denly said his host starting up, 'I'll intro duce you to him at once u merry follow you Will find him Lord lovo you ! he's as brave as a lion.' David, though horrified nt tho diabolical plot ho had heard, haw the necessity of dissembling iu order t i learn further of the lories' plans, if possibio to circumvent them. Ilo arose, therefore, and shook the Major's hand warmly, pledged him immediately iuu brimerj an t boon contrived to make the loy alist believe that he wun anxious to join a tioop and take part against tho rebels. This induced the Major to bo unusually civil for lie wished to ecuro so athlio recruit himself. It was tvi long before a bargain hail been concluded between (he two. David refused, however, to sign the agreement that night; he pretended that several others of his friends' were disatVocto 1 and h's oh iecf, he s:vd, was to secure a commission for h'tn ielf by inducing them to join. This tempting bait took; the Major promised him a command of his troops incase of success, and David signified his intention of setting lot th after he had taken a few hours rest, in order to lose no time in gathering together his recruits. The dread of dis every htvl been before our In ro during the management of h;s ne gotiation, for his person was well known to many of the Major's troop, ami if any ol hem had come up, Irs fe'gaed name would not have protected him from detection. He wished to get oil' that night as he had pro nosed, but to this, neither les host nor the Major would hear, and he was forced to remain till morning. What was his anguish to hear on rising, that tho Major had been ioue pome hours and wim already tin h's way to the Hunkers with his troops. Dis sembling his anxietv, David partook of a !ias!y breakfast, an mounting his horse, rode slowly away. Hut when out of sight ol' the house he struck into a fierce gallop, wh . h he continued till he came in sight of 1 cross road, where was a tavern. Here he stopped, and learning that the loyalist had taken the high road, he turned into a more narrow and more cirouitoiu one. 'It's my only possible chance to nvo'd ilieiii,' he sa'd, again dashing into a gallop. Tray Hod, I may reach the settlennnt in t me 10 collect a lew of our lads and march io Hitukci's. There ia no other hope now h II. Night had fallen, as they expected, before the lo.'.es were able to roach the virin'ly ol the house t'.iey wore iu tiourch of. At length, h nvovcr, alter a silent march through the woods, it broke upon their v'ew. A l'ght w.is burning in one of the windows, icid when they arrived close to the promises, Iho lively notes of a violin reached their ear.i. proving that the brothers were not awa.e of their presence, but enjoying themselves in iinu-'ined security'. 'Now nu n,' whispered the leader of the torios, 'when 1 give the word, fire a volley it the house by way of introducing our selves; we will then surround the house mid cuter ii.' At this instant (he dot p bay of a log lung iu their ears, and a large maid ill' sprang from under the house and rushed al the Major. 'Fire,' ho cried. Twenty' guns broke the st'llness of tho night the dog foil dead every pane of glass in front of the house was shivi red. and the torios yelled like savages. In an instant the lii'.ht in the house was extinguished the violin quickly ceased and a noise was made at the door. The torios iniinedintelv made a rush at it. Hut it was already bar red, and being made of stout oak plank, re sisted all their ell'ort.i. A rifle crack from one of the upper win dows, and one of the lories fell desperately wounded. Another report succeeded, and another tory fell, and Major Wilson was niTw fully aware that both Hunkers were at home and wide awake. A shed turned the rain from the front the bonne and underneath this the tories shielded themselves from the fire of the Hunkers and went to work at the door. Sus pecting such resistance perhaps from knowledge of their character one of them had brought an ax.with which he commenced hewing at the door, nnd soon cut it to pie ces, llere a desperate battle ensued. The two brothers were powerful men, and cour ageous as they were sti"iig; and now, with clubbed l ilies, thev disioited the passage of the whole tory force. The door being small, they stood their ground for hall' hour; felling during that time some of there who had tho temerity to enter first, but fi nally numbers overcame them, ami they were flung upon the floor and bound. The tories inflamed to madness at the great resistance which had been made, and at their own loss, now seized the mother and sister, and made preparations to hang the two bro liers before their eyes. Toe ropes were already lied around tlie necks of the victims, when tho Major thuu addressed his men : 'Now, friends, ns soon as theso villains are dead, we will set lire to this housc-the old woman, there,' he said with a scornful laugh, 'may bo left inside, but tho younger one I reserve for myself.' 'Hist!' cried one of the men in a loud voice. Tho Major ceased, and they heard voice outside of tlie house. Although the words were spoken low, the listeners dis tinctly heard, 'when I say lire give it tolhcm!' A man with a blanched cheek now rushed among them exclaiming, 'the yard is full men!' 'Fire!' cried a deep voice from tho yard; a general volley succeeded, and so well had the aim been directed in tho door, that sev eral of tho tories fell dead or desperately wounded. In turn, tho tories retreated up stairs, when David, our hero, rushed into the room which (hey had just left, and cut the ropes which bound the Hunkers and the mother and sister. ' May (bid Almighty bless yon for this,' cried one of the Hunkers. Tho two men sprung up and seized their rifles which been left in tho room, and prepared to re taliate tho treatment they had just received. Long and desperate was (ho battle. The tories fought for tif'i the whigs for revenge. Hut at length the latter triumphed, though not until their enemies had been almost wholly exterm na'.cd. The Major fell by the hand of our hero, who sought him out in tlio hottest of the fight and engaged him single handed. No languago of ours can express the emotion of David as he pressed his betroth ed to his bosom, and his heart went up in thankfulness to heaven for his timely arri val, when he thought a delay of half an hour would have consigned her to a fate worso Ihii.'i death. The gratitude of her brothers w as expressed in many words, but hers was silent and tearful, yet oh ! how much more gratifying. '1 almost called you a coward, son David,' said the father to him, when they met, 'but you are a chip of the old block, ami 1 did you wrong. Deborah, ho is a boy to be proud of, is he not? You may founder one of my horses every day that you do such lee.l it brats anything I baw in tho old French war.' David's gallantry in this act, drew around h'm, in a few weeks, more than a score of hardy young followers, who fought with him 'to' the close id' the war, when ho re turned and was happily married to tho he roine of our btory.

Douglas' Speech at Chicago, May, iSGt. Opinion of the Attorney General on the Habeas Corpus Question. of a In obedience to a resolution by the House of Representatives, adopted on the Llth instant, requiring a copy of tho opinion of the Attorney (ieneral, mentioned in the I'resident's message, in reference to the suspension of the writ of holn'os eerpux, Judge Hales has transmitted u copy nt his letter to the President of July oth. ft makes a pamphlet of twelve pages, and is an able and elaborate argument. There were two questions. First In the present time of a great and dangerous insurrection, has the President the discretionary power to cause to be ar rested and held in custody persons known to have criminal intercourse with the insur gents, or persons against whom there is probable cause of inupicion of such crimi nal complicity; Second In such rason of arrest, is the President justified in refusing to obey a writ of habeas corpus issued by a court or a Judge, requiring him or his agent to pro duce the body (if the prisoner, and show (he cause of his caption and determination, to be adjudged and disposed of by such court or ,lui!ge. To the fust question Judge Hales, after a preliminary argument upon the relative pow irsof the several branches of the (Govern ment, says: "I urn clearly of the opinion that, in a time like the present, w hen the very exist ence of the nation is assayed by a great and dangerous insurrection, the President has the lawful discrel.oniiry power to arrest and hold iu custody persons known to have criminal intercourse with the insurgents, or persons against whom there in probable cause for suspicion of such criminal com plicity. After proceeding to prove this position, as to the second question lie says: "Having assumed iu answering the first question, lh.it the Presidt lit has legal dis cretionary powers, iVe., it mivrlit seem un necessary to go into any prolonged argu mom to prove mat in sttcii a ease the 1 resi dent is fully justified in refusing to obey writ ol habeas corpus, ,vc. He concludes "not doubting the power of the President to capture and hold bv force open insurgents against the (lovern- nient, ami to arrest ami imprison their suspected accomplices, 1 novel thought lust suspending tlie wnlol Itaheas corpus, any more than I thought of first suspending the writ of replevin, before seizing arms and munitions destined for the enemy. The power to do these things is in the hands ol I he President, placed there bv the eotislitu tion, ami a statute law, 111 a sacred trust, to be used by him, in his best discretion, tho performance ol his great first dtilv, preserve, protect and defend die ConiUitu- tion, ami for any breach of that (rust l.e rospoiinihio ticiore tne higti court ol impeachment, and before no other human tri bunal."

The u fo pun just burst out throng!, th clouds, u:d n heavy golden beam cornel in at our win low. How bright and cheerful 1 It comes in so silently .yet tqeaks to tho heart! Ycr, lha'ik (Jo I for suindiiue 1 Ages on i.es it has illuminated and gladdened world, yet we hardly think of the great fountain of light and beauty. Writing of sunbeam brings to mind touching incident which riituo under our observation an wo were traveling in th cars. Opposito was seated a family of four, consisting of a man and his wife, and two children boy and girl twins, totally blind. Two lovelier children wo never saw. Tho family were from tho South. A southern sun had given each cheeks a rich olive complexion, relieved by a beautiful bio--! upon the children's countenances. The boy was lightly built, bad lino features ami hair of a dark brown, clustering in rich ctnls around Iur neck. The girl was yet more slender, and fragile ns a leaf, and of the most spiritualized I'autv. Her lv.ir wus black as i.igh ,-y 1 !r-'-y tresses, e uilined bv a golden band, which glittered lirighily upon the dark bac k ground. They both seemed happy, conversing with an in telligence beyond their years. The train stopped for a moment upon thoir route. The windows were nil ra'sed, and tho children leaning out as if to see. Tho littlo girl In aved a long sigh, and then leant d hu.-k in the seat cxclaimirg, "O.molher, lean not see anything." A tear trembled in her eve, and In r voice was so nad that it went tt the heart of every passenger who heard the lieaul'.lul 1 tnl tiniortunnto creature. Neither can I see, Hi He; but I think that evervtli ng ts heaut till, ran! !'or brother. is the light w;nd lifted t! ti.in locks. 'You are lieautitV.!, are you not, Hello?"

Ouick us thought she put up lo r hand, and attempted to grasp tlie gohlen penc.is that were ploying through (ho pi aids upon her nick and cheek. Fagerlv she she) her hand upon viu aiicy, and a r.hadow fell upon her coun tenance as sue laded to touch tho sunshine. "Mother, I cannot feel it, has it lied out of the win. low?" "What, Hello?" "The sunshine: mother. It touches my cheek, but I cannot touch it." The mother's eyes swam in tears, ns did llioae of nearly all in the ears. Tho blind girl feeling for a sunbeam upon her cheek 1 That beam was radiant with beauty sho could not behold it. It gleamed upon a world, yet all wus night to her. Its silver bursting in the east, or its golden light fading in the west, followed as day followed day; but it burst not upon her vision, or faded at decline of day. It glowed in the sky, upon forest, and field, and lake, and river; but not in the blue orps of the sight less less.

In the same way Jefferson Davis found the people happy and contented, un der tho best form of government iu the world, an l he resolved to destroy it and set up a black dominion of his own, prefer ing, like the arch rebel of old, to "reign in Hell rather than serve in Heaven."
