BY A SISTER TO HER LONC AADSENT BROTHER. Conio home! Would I could send my spirit o'er the deep, Would I could wing it like a bird to thee: To communo with thy thoughts, to fill thy sleep With these unwearying words of melody, Brother, come home. , Come home! Como to the hearts that love thee, to the eyes That beam in brightness but to cluddun thine; Come where fond thoughts like holiest incense rise, Where cherish'd Memory rears horullar's shrine; Brother, como home. Come home! Como to the hearthstone of thy early days; Come to the ark like the o'erwearied dovo; Come with the sunlight of thy heart's warm rays, Come to the fireside circle of thy lovci Brother, come home. Come home! It is not home without thee the lono seat Is still unclaimed wln.ro tliou wert wont to be; In every echo of returning feet, j Jn vain we list for what should herald thee: Brother, come home. VVo'vc nursed for thee the sunny buds of Spring, i Watched every germ a full blown liowret rear; kw p'cr their bloom the chilly winter iling its lcygnrlands, and thou art nut here: Brother, como home. ' " ., ' ,. Conio horrie! Would I could send my spirit o'er tho deep; AVould I could wing it like a bird to thee; To commune with thy thoughts, to lill ihy sloep With these unwearying words of melody, Brother, come home. THE RESPONSE. 1 Swiftly our good ship with the rising ga'e, Rides the green billow of the swelling sea; My country and my home 1 soon shall hail, And all my tears forget at meeting thee: Sister, 1 comb; 1 come. In every zephyr from our favored lund, 1 bear thy voice; a nd tho wild ocean's rear Cannot divert mo from the beckoning had, Of lost affection on the distant shore: Sister, I come. I eoihe. My spirit lingers round our childhood's home. Iii the' deep midnight, when tho world is still; And to thy plaintive call, "come, Jbroiher come," Answers its sister-spirit of the hill, , Sister, I come. 1 come. Blest will the exile be to meet bis sire And welcoming mother at the cottage door, To sit with thee bedside the evening tiro, And tell tho tale of his adventures o'er: Sister, I como. I came. When Spring awakens eurlh as w'th a charm, And earlh again her vernul pleasures yields, How beautilul 'twill seem, as arm in arm, We thread the walks ol our Elysian tields; Sister, I come. I como. Swiftly our good ship with the rising gale, Rides the green billows of the swelling sea, My country and my home I soon shall huil. And all my fears dismiss at meeting thee:' Sister, I com.

Hisjcountenance wore o sad, weary, exhausted look, lie had been seated thus only for a minute when his wife said, in a fretful voice "More troublo again." "What's the matter nowl" asked Mr. Wal cott almost starting. "John has been sent home from school." "What!" Mr. Walcoit partlj- arose from his chair. . ''lie's been suspended for bud conduct1:" "Ob dear!" groaned Mr. Wulcott. "Where is he?" "Up in his room. I sent him there as soon as he came home. You'll have to do some thing with him. He'll he ruined if he goes on in. this way. I'm out of all heart with him." Mr. Wulcott, excited as much by the man ner in which his tvifu conveyed unpleasant information, as by the information itself, Malted up, under the bliod impulse of the mntnprit. nrwl iTfiirifT tlm rnnm uilioro Tf.hi, wasn't to blame, and if you will go w ith to the teacher I can prove myself innocent." Mr. Walcott hud never known his sou to tell an untruth, and the words smoto with re buke upon his heart. "very well we will see about thai" he answered, with forced sternness, and leaving the room he went down stuirs, feeling much worse than when he went up. Again he seated himself in his large chair, and again leaned back his weary head, and closed his heavy eyelids. Sadder was his face than be- j frre. As he sat thus his oldest daughter, in her sixteenth yeur came and stood near him. She held a paper in her hand; "I uther" he opened his eyes. "Here's my quarter b;ll. It's twenty dol lars. Can't I have the money .to take to school with mo in the morning!" . . "I'm afraid not" answered Mr. Wulcott, half sadlv. Nearlv 'all the rir'a will bririrr in their money to-morrow: und it mortifies me to be ' , ... behind tho others." The. daughter spoke fretfully. Mr. Walcott waved her aside with his hand, anu she went off muttering and pouting. "It is mortifying," spoke up Mrs. Wulcott, little sharply "and I don't wonder that Helen feels unpleasantly about it. The bill bus to be paul, and I don't see why it may not be done as well first as last." To this Mr. Walcott made no answer. The words but added another pressuro to the burden Under which ho wus already stagger ing. After a silence of some trijinents Mrs. Walcott said! . "The coal is gone." "Impossible!" Mr. Walcott raloed his head! and looked incredulous. "I laid in sixteen tons." "I can't help it, if there were Bixty tons inste.'d of sixteen; it's nllone. Tho girls had a time of it to-day, to scrape up enough to keep the fire going." "1 hero's been a shameful waote some where," said Mr. Walcott with strong em phasis, "starting up,' and moving cbout thb room with a very disturbed manner. "So you always say, when any thing isoiil," answered Mrs. Walcott rather tartly. "The barrel of flour is gone also; but I sup pose you have done your part, with the rest, in using it u5. Mr. Walcoll returned to his chair, and a guin seating himself, leaned back his head ahd closed his eyes as ut first. How sad and weary, and hopeltes ho felt! The bur dens of the day had seemed almost tou-heav-y for him; but he had borne up bravely. To gather strength for a renewed struggle with adverse circumstuncca, ho had come home. Alas! that the process of exhaustion should still go on. That where only strength could be looked "for nostrngth ewui given. When tho tea bell rang, Mr. Walcott made no movement to obey the summons. "Come to supper" said his wife coldly. Tut he did not stir. "Aint you coming to supperl" she called to him, as she was leaving the room. "1 don't wish anything this evenirg. My head aclie9 badly," he answered. "In the dumps again," niultered Miss. Walcott to herself. "It's as much as one's life is worth to ask for money, or to say anything is wanted ." And bIio kept on her way to the dining room. When she returned, her husband was eiill silling where she had left him. "Shall I bring yoii a cup of tea1" she asked. "What'B the matter, Mr. Walcott! What do you look so troubled about, as if you hadn't a friend in the world! What have done to you!" There was no answer, for there was not shade of real, sympathy in the ' voice that made the queries but rather a querlllous dissatisfaction. A few moments Mrs. Wal cott stood r.ear her husband but as he did not seem inclined to answer her questions; she turned off from him, and resumed the . . , . , , . . , , .,,, j ,, ' enjoyment which had been interrupted by ' the ringing of the bell. The wholo evening passed without the occurrence of a single incident that gavo ' healthlul pulsation to the sick heart of Mr ; Walcott.

A confident spirit, sustained by home affections, would have carried him through; but unsup ported as he was, the burden wua too heavy fur him and he sunk under it. The day that opened thus unpropitiously, closed upon him a ruined man! Let us look in, for a few moments, upon Mr. Freeman, the friend and neighbor of Mr. Walcott. lie, also hud come home, weary. dispirited and almost sick. The trials of the uay nau ucen unusually severe; ond when 1 he looked anxiously lorwurd to scan the 1 future, not even a gleam of light was seen ulong the black horizon. he stepped across tho threshold of bis ! dwelling, a puug shot through his heart; for ! the thought enme. "How slight the present j hold upon oil those comforts!" Not for him-j but for his wife and children, was the ' pain. I "Father's come!" cried a glad little voice the Stairs, tho moment his foot-fall soun-' ded in the passage, then quick pattering feet ! heard und then a tiny foim was : springing into his ams. Before reaching ' the 8eltinir room above, Alice, the oldest'may uuugiuer, was uy ins siue, ncr arm drawn fondly within his, and he,- lovinj; eyes lilted 1.. I - I I I , to Ins Iucp. "Are you not lute, dear!" It was the gen-'uiid tie voice of Mrs. Freeman. Mr. Freeman could not trust himself to answer. He was too deeply troubled in spirit lo assume at the moment, a cheerful ; tone, anil he had no wish to sudden the hearts j thut li ved him by letting the depression from 1 which he was suffering, become too clearly apparent. But the eyes ol Mrs. Freeman saw. quickly below the surface. "Aro you not well, Robeit!" she enquired tenderly, as she drew his large arm chair towards the tentre of the room. "A little head-ache" he answered with slight evasion. .Scarcely was Freeman seated, ere a yair of little hands were busy with each foot, re moving g.titer and shoe, and supplying their place with soft slipper. There was not ono n "ie ''u3""" who did not teel nepp.er.tor his return, nor one win) did not. seek to re ii der him some kind office. It was impossible under such a hurst of hfart-sunshinei for the spirit of Mr. Free man long to remain shrouded. Almest im preceptibly to himself, gloomy thoughts gave place to more Cheerful ones, and by the time tea was icady, he had half forgotten the fears which had so haunted him through ,'.ho duy. But they could not be held back altogether, and her existence was marked, during the evening, by on untlsuul silence and abstrac - tion of mind. This was observed by Mrs Freeman, who more than half suspecting the caused kept back from her liusbund the knowledge tf certain matters about which she had intended to speak with him for she fearfd they would add to his mntul disquie tude. During the evening, the gleaned from something he said, the real cause of his changed aspect. At once her thuughts com menced running in a new chunnel, By a few loading remarks, she drew her husband into conversation on the subieet of home ex penses, and the propriety of restriction at various points. Many things were mutua'y pronounced superfluous, and easily lo be dispenscdtwith; and before sleep fell soothing ly on the heavy eyelids of Mr. Freeman, that night, an entire change in their stylo of liv ing hud been determined upon a change that Mould reduce their expenses at leusf one half.

I a a a to in , An officer belonging to Col. Slepoe's com mand now stationed at at Salt Luke City, in letter to the Providence Journal thus spaks of the condition of the Mormon women. With a word about the melancholy condi tion I will brim? mv letter to a close. As general thing, a woman here, having satisfied what we coll the "lust," but whut uie mor mons call "holy desires," of some right eous elders, is left to shift for herself; not lhe least support does she receive from hi in to whom she has becn in many cases forced to prostitute herself. Their condition is infi nitely worse than that of the slaVes of the South. One of the wives of "lhe ciieff the Twelve Apostles" washes for a boarding .house here to support herself; two wives of PuriyP. Pratt another apostle, have repeated'y begged for work. Women have told mo that their pre tended husbands not visited them for months and years. One of the apostles oaked a fam ily of three girls to marry mm, anu io jret them he would tuke the old mother. They refused, and he lias since muligiud them in every wuy. We receive many requests lor assistance to leave from women in ever position. Their case is peculiarly hard; seperated by .nun dreds of miles ot plain and desert irom lite outside world, brought hore by the false in ducements, degraded and oppressed, with hope of succor, ihey are in great, very great numbers entirely disaffected. They abhor uprv thouitht of oolvirarny, tho v'er'v name rTormonisr.i'. This is the honest, simple truth. ' Another Presidential Candidate.

I suppose it makes but little differenej about these for although religion is a very good thing to have in a family there seems to be but littlo use fur it down in Washington. I may as well state, howev erthat I am not at all bigotted and I do not confine myself to any particular sect. I am neither a Mormon, nor a Shaker, nor a Jew, nor a Gentile. I have never been accustom ed to worship Idols like the Hindots and Urahmupootrus nor am I opposed to pork and beans like the iguoianl Mahometans. Still I have no'.hing to suy against ministers. I alum's keen a Testament on board for the uso of passengers, and if I have told Tom,! my cabin boy, once, I'vo told him a dozen times, never lo swear before tho ludios.

Having Jived upon the mo3t friendly terms with this admirable body, we desire so to pa-t with it. It was not of our selection nor was it selected to our mind; bin common gratitude commands us to re count the benefits which it has conferred upon ths press and the people. By its aid we have been enabled every morning to Jpre sent lo our subscribers many columns of solid reports; not your light, trashy, enteTfain ing stuff, bi t'respectable, prosing, common place, affording no more enervating pleasure, bt't admirably fitted to discipline the patience, Yet here and there the sombre record has been relieved. With eager interest our readers have persued the mutable fortunes and adventures of some ill-starred bill; hare seen it travel like a pilgrim from House to Senate, and from Senate to House, now Il lustrated by the eloquence of Swift, or Slack, or Griffin, and now sinking down under the fatal influence of an amendment from Dr. tone. ..... - - ; During a dull season the public interest in this Legislature has never . for a moment fallen off. At times savage and at times droll, it has combined the peculiarities of very high tragedy and equally .low comedy j the dignity of Julius Csesar and the vivacity of Punch. Mr. Job Terry, of Freetown, voting so many times, solitary and alone, in the negative, has illustrated the dignity of individual opinion. Mr. Jonathan Pierce, of Boston, colling loudly on his Creator, Imi shown the advantages ol religion. Mr. Griffin, of Charlestown, giving his absent friend and K.

And how can we over estimate the philoso phy and fun of that hissing hot history of Hiss! The days ct the romantic have not forever departed.
