THE HYING AHD THE DEAD. f"No monument, not even a tablet, has been raised over grave of THADDIUS STIVIJTB, and on Decoration Day it was with difficulty his resting place could be ideniifled."—Daily Jbper, June, 1871] The living man was known to each and all His friends applauded his foes, they fought The brave old Spartan for the strokes ho gave— The noble work he wrought. The listener hung in transport on his words The reader eager drank the printed page The patriot's heart witn admiration throbbed— With passion foes did rage. So long as wrinkled flesh and wasting frame Tottered upon this side the Jortlon flood, The world groped not in mist, for all could see Where STEVENS stood. But, lo I the flesh was wasted, and the eye No longer flashed with fire in warm debate The lips no longer wondering listeners moved With either love or hate. w. The mourners were a multitude their grief Seemed deep, and as eternal as the years Wails came om cot and cabin all the land Was bathed in saddest tears. But, lot tho years, scarce starting on the road To trump the fame unto the human race, Find naught of tablet or of monumont To mark his resting place. Such is the common lot The barque of life Sails on more swiftly as the years roll by The dead give place to moving forms of life, Forgotten they who die. THE STREAM. "Now on the polished stones It danced like childhood laughing as it went Then, through the plain in tranquil wandering* crept, Reflecting every herb and drooping bud That overh mg its quietness. 0 stream Whose source is inacessibly profound, Whither do thy mysterious waters tend Thou imagest my life. Thy darksome stillness, Thy datsling wave, thy loud and hollow gulfs, Thy searchless fountain, and Invisible course Have each their type in me." —Shelly. SWEET SALOME. (CONTINUED FROM LAST WEE He was absent an entire week, and Salome had tho chance ol realizing for the first time how long a week may be, in spito of three delightful loiters that woke ail the slumbering pulses of her heart, but to which sha replied not a word. Why? He had not asked her, forsooth he had only asked, Would she bum those he might choose to write Burn them She would quite as soon put her own hand to theflame they were apart ot him, the picture of his thoughts, the vital expression of his being. It was a sad cross that the very day he had fixed lor his return she must at tend a dinner-party at tho house of a friend some miles away. It seemed to her, in thefirstplace, that th dinner would never have a beginning, and secondly, that it would never have an end and then, was the way home ever so long before? With Kitty and Hild reth cooing in one corner of the coach, and wishing it would creep on forever. But vexation was all forgotten when, spurring up the drive, she could plainly dosory M'Gregor and Thorpe sitting on the piazza, enveloped id a drifting cloud uf incense like two Norse gods. M'Gregor threw his cigar away as tbey drew up, and came down to meet her. "Salome," said he, lifting her from the carriage, "I have lived a whole week without a word from vour lips." "It was not the first experiment ot the kind, I fancy," she answered, lijh ly. "If I'm not mistaken, jou lived and thrived some thirty years or more without it." "True. Bat what a miserable exist ence Bid you receive my letters looking into her eyes. "Yes," the color mounting. "Bid you devote them to the flames?" "And what if I did?" "It was very proper, no doubt they held 'words that burn/ did tbey not "I'm sure I don't know, Mr. M'Greg or. Won't you tell me whatyou've been seeing and enjoying 'Tve been constantly seeing this mo moot, inTny mind's eye, and enjoying the prospect/' "It'e impossible for you to talk rea sonably, I believe. If you aten't going to be entertaining I shall say good night." Tbey had reached' the foot of the staircase in their talk, and stood there delaying in the dimly-lighted ha'l, as if something were yet to be uttered. "Won't you say good-night to me asked Salome, giving him her hand. "Those people were so tiresome that I'm already half asleep." "This is my good night," said he, and before she could have spoken he had stooped and left a kiss on her lips. For an instant the spirit of the Tres hams stirred angrily within her then she turned and went up to her room sobbing beneath her breath, "If henot loved me he would never have stolen what would not give but in her dreams that long, lingering touch still burned upon her lips and made the heart beat double meanure. The next morning she did not go down to breakfast ct the usual hour, r, as much as the kiss was sweet—which fact conscience would not allow her toheart evade—so much she meant to deny herself the equal sweetness of bis pres ence besides, she argued, it was well to •how disapproval of his conduct. Bnt all this was to no purpose' M'Gregor waylaid her the moment her foot was on the stairs: and whether it was owing to his sudden appearance, or to a treacher ous carpet-rod, she tripped, and would have fallen headlong but that he put out an arm and saved her. "When the heavens fall we catch larks," said he. "You were offended with me last night?" he questioned, still holding her fast "I confess that I did wrongly—may perhaps be tempted agaiu-^willyott forgive me 7" With his strong arm detaining her, his daring eyes devouring her, his lips only sepa rated from hers by ever so little it was possible that he might be tempted Hgain. "If you will let me gi, Mr. M'Greg or," refusing to meet his glance. "Go where Is not this your place, Salome Philosophers have said in vain that whatever wo love is ours, if you are not mine. Salome, dear child, do not turn your face away. 1 love you Her eyes were dnwn to his now, those beautilul clear orbs, swimming in a lustre half way between smiles and tears, as it such happiness were too big tor belief, too dear br doubt then the lids dropped under a rain of tender kisses, and Sweet Salome was indeed won. What swift, delightful days were thoe that followed, whether they walk ed abroad in the holiday fields, or mounted horse and rode to catch tho odor of pine woods whether they sang or kept a sacred silence. To Salome these fow weeks were the poem of the year, and had she died on. that last day bhe might have deemed it only the sub limation of an existence that had al ready exhausted earth and its pleasures. It was afresh page she bad opened ot, by chance as it seemed, a page illumi nated as no monk ever dreamed in spite of scourge and fasting through which his brain might soar to dazzling heights of fantasy. She had had lov ers before, it is true, bad speculated and spoken upon the marvelous influ ence, but never before for her had love "filled all the stops of lite with tuneful breath." In the mean time, if it was a sen sation less novel to M'Gregor, it was none the less absorbing, none tho less strong and enduring. To-day tbey lo?ed and enjoyed to the uttermost to-mor row might come storms, or clouds, or disaffeition, but to-day was their own, with all its bright entanglemeuts. They were sitting together one morn ing as usual, Salome crocheting some delicate mystery in brilliant wool, while M'Gregor read Irom the last new poem, when the letters frotc the mail were brought in. "I must run up to town at once," said M'Gregor hastily scanning a busi ness scrawl. "And Aunt Parry," returned Salome, "has sent for mo she has a foreign minister in town, 'whom I shall find it to my advantage (o know.' "Wo have parried that stroke," said M'Gregor. "Yes. But I shall humor her to the point of making a flying visit there while you are off. In the mean time 1 shall say nothing of other views 1 en tertain concerning the disposal of my precious self, and it will be exceedingly amusing to watch her manoeuvres." "It may be fun to you, but death to me." Salomo made no reply. She bad torn open another envelope, and was grow ing by turns hot and cold over a para graph contained therein. It was only a word or so that followed in the cur rent of gossip, a straw as it were, it may be giving signs ot a tornado: "I hear that, Thorpe is entersing the fascinating August M'Gregor, who, by the-way, was so kind as to iniorm Col onel Alston that be meant to marry you Prenes grade. Bon't bo caught in such a snare." "He was so sure as that," she thought, still keeping silence 'so very sure." "What disturbes you, Salome?' asked M'Gregor, who had been regard ing her. "There is something in that letter about me, is there not "I ought to congratulate you on the success of your plans," she said, meet ing his eye as coldly as it was possible for her to do k(but the old proverb warns us that there's many a slip be tween the cop and the lip," and she gave him the letter. "Colonel Alston," ho roplied. "Pshaw You don't let such trifles an noy you, Salome, dear I dire say I may have made some such remark on the impulse. Ay, I recollect now that he was so good as to warn me friends are so officious, love," coming to kiss her forehead and burning cheek. "If I moant to marry you, it could have been only that I meant to love you You wanted me to love you without meaning it, in defiince of an opposite resolve—wasn't that it "Perhaps so. I see it was nothing," shq returned, smiling graciously. "Af ter all one knows what one can and can do and thus the subjjet dropped, and next night they were nrles apart. "A month without you, love," he had said in parting "but what if ithad were to be a lifetime 1 What if I should die, or you should change'(" But she only hid her tears, shuddering at thenight thought, without words for replying. It was a ride to gladden a sadder than that of Salome—a ride through country just touched with the beauty of the deolining year, where the ripened leaves fluttered like a rain ot nold and scarlet wings through all the silent air, and the afternoon sunshine lay in solid drifts along the furrows of brown fields, tangling itself among wild vines and ragged mosses, and dusting the. noddiog ashberries and sumach plumes and when she reached her destination in the chill twilight there was something genial in the bright wood-fire, with all its ruby and violet flames, flickering and falling only to soar again and vanish in a whirl of smoke into the lonely night ouside something cheerful to find Aunt Parry in tier silver silks and ewels sitting be fore it in light tete-a-tete with her for eign minister. The Baron proved to be an amiable elderly gentleman, full of romance and sentimentality, who took a sudden and fatherly interest in Salome, which Aunt Parry interpreted quite otherwise buj as he bad lived for many years a bachelor, and indulged in the further consolation of taking snuff, from an exquisitely jeweled box, Salomo felt no compunctions, and it was out of pure good nature that she flattered Aunt Parry's ambitious heart by going out with him wherever he wished to go, whether at reception or opera—it mattered little to herself, 60 long as she was separated from M'Gregor, whether her companion were a garrulous baron or a quiet blockhead. Thus it happened that she found her self at the opera one night listening to the fluting, of some Prima Donna. "A pretty little bird,'' said the Baron, be tween the parts—who spoke excellent English—while Salome fluttered her rose-leaf fan dreaming of M'Gregor, and the violins' appealing adagio swept into passionate ecstasy and rose in tense staccato far above the clavier of the other instruments, till the danc ing-girls of the frescoed ceiling seemed to swim indolently on this billow of harmony. When the sweet tumult had given placo to silence the Baron was still found to be speaking Salome did not know how long he had been thus employed, but she now caught the words: "She was a perfect hunmibg-bird, a'Will-o'-the wisp.'" "I beg your pardon," said Salome, then "the music was so exacting that I lost the thread of your remarks. Of whom wero you speaking?" "Our Prima Bonna. She recalls to me a little French girl, Cerise, who broke the heart of her good American husband." "Cerise! Her husband!" faltered Salome, dropping the look of merely ciril interest, and blanching at the lips. "Cerise "Yes, Cerise. You never heard the name perhaps, and dear child but it suited her," he was so good as to ex plain "she looked like a cherry she was sush a little atom of beauty, with out much soul, or perhaps, to carry out the comparison, she had a stone at the core. Quite a romance, quite a ro mance—I'll tell you about it but first turn your lorgnette to the right and tell me who is in the box opposite, your ejes are younger than mine." "I do not see any one, Baron Lan stadi." "No mattor, no matter perhaps he has withdrawn. It was a trifling coin cidence merely, a—what is it you call it ?—an hallucination. It was be cause had the story in my mind, per haps, that the face presented itself to me iu the flesh at it were. Do you know, Mademoiselle, I am such a do tard that because I ppoke of Cerise I must needs see her husband, poor iel low*, in the opposite box. She has not lost all influence over him yot, if her mere name can conjure him," added the Baron, who was the least bit super stitious, withal. Salomo trembled, and drew her cape about her shoulders. It seemed to her that some thing troubled the lights, that some great pain was falling like a cloud about her, fold upon fold, shutting out the sweet words, the beaming faces, enveloping her in blackest ruin. "The story," she said, as the Baron paused—"the story 1 am listening." "Oh yes—the story. I was looking at the haunted box again I thought I saw the appearance. I knew his faca well at Boulogne, though I never ex changed a syllable with him. Here too no one could help observing such a lovely sprite, even among a crowd of pretty grisettcs. "How did you come to know about the story she found voice to ask. After all, she Was disturbing herself for naught, perhaps. It had probably nothing whatever to do with her in terests. "How? Oh, my dear, it was inallowed every body's mouth, the ingratitude was so—so detestable. Listen then. This Cerise, it appears, was a beggar in the sreets of Boulogne, living on ctusts in squalor. All day long she entreated Irom door to door, sometimes singing for a mouthful, and at night time she crept into some heap of straw and slept the sleep ot the innocent But one morning, in the damp season, she awoke with a sharp pain, her tongue was parched, her face on fire, her limbs cramped and useless. She not tasted of food for the twenty four hours and a pestilent fever had seized her. So she lay in ber den till came on, when she drew herself out on her hands and knees, and beg ged tor pity of the passers. There were thousands, you know, some of whom paid her no heed, while others threatened her with the police onlv mo man, quite young, who was atmand that time at Boulogne in charge of the French branch of an American mercantile house—this young man paused and questioned her, took her home with him in his carriage, sent for doctors and nurses, and never left her himself through all the dangers of her disease.

The perversity and waywardness of the child is not the only, and perhaps the chief bind rance to a mother, in the exercise of a firm, conscientious dis cipline. To see her child merry and happy is her hourly delight its gleeful laugh is music in her ears in correcting it sin inflicts much more pain upon her own feelings than upon tho child to "spare her soul" the sound of his pite ous "crying," she will refrain from thwarting bis fancies, or unreasonable desires, and neglect the needful meas ures of restraint. Alas, fond mother! Too surely will this weak self-indulgence bring forth its legitmate fruit for the child thus "left to himself, bringeth his mother to shame." In nine cases out of ten his conduct is "bitterness to her that bare him in the natural course of cause and ef-tle, fect, the neglected child will "consume the eyes, and grieve the heart" of theobeyed, weak, doting parent. In calling this laxity of discipline self-indulgence, and attributing it to self-love, we speak advisedly. Let the Christian mother regard her child not only as apart of her own life, in tho strong natural affection she bearb toward him, but as the mother of Sam uel expressed herself, tha son "f ^er vows" as well, of vows which .y quire much selt-donial and pai .ful ef fort on her part, but which must be fulfilled, as she values the eternal well being of tho child entrusted to her.

James i. 8 In order that discipline may be of any-avail, it is necessary that it be firm, steady and uniform not depend ing upon the caprice or circumstances vi the moment, but, as the child will soon learn tc preccive, upon high and unwavering principle. What o-o be more injurious to a child than to be at times severely pun ished for aots of disobedience, such as, on other occasions, and for reasons quite beyond his comprehension, are to pass unnoticed beneath the parent's very eye Ot course the child, not knowing when the parent may be in the humor to enforce a eommand, will often dis obey in hope of escaping the threat ened penalty, and when punishment follows, it will irritate in proportion as it was unexpected. A great deal may be accomplished in the guidance and moulding of chil dren, in minor matters, by persuasive tact, without positive commands and rules. In many points, in the daily man agement of active, heedless children, there is more call for the patient "line upon line and precept open precept," of gentle admonition, than for the di rect exercise of authority. A wise parent will avoid unnecessary collision with the will of a child but at the same time, when a direct Bcm is given, will never allow it to be evaded, or disregarded. It is wonderful with what ingenui ty a very young child, even, will at tempt to break through the parental authority by watching an opportuni ty when the parent is tbooght to be off from her guard by playful, coaxing arts, to avert displeasure or by ventur ing only a little way oh the path of of disobedience. In the case of sickly, nervous ohil* dren, it is judged by many that the ex* eroise of a firm authority is harsh and and lived happily till* dashing Au I uncalled tor that inch a suffering lit* tie one should be allowed its own way when it cannot be coaxed into com pliance with the wishes of its parents. Oo the contrary, it is the greatest mircy to such a child to teach it to yield implicit obedience to authority. This habit once formed, the child may be saved from much suuering by the interposition of the calm, steady tone of command. "Provoke not joar children t: anger, least the/ be discouraged." "Wars them that are tinruly, comfort the feeble* minded, support the w.-.k, be patient toward all." "Grerious words stir up anger." Col. hi.21. 1. Thes. v.U Pror. 1 In speaking of jarental authority, wo aro by no means to picture to our minds a stern, unbending discipline arian, with uplifted rod, ready to check all the gushing impulses of childhood. This species of government is is far from the spirit of the Bible, as the laxity and fond indulgence which it so severely reprehends. Nor is it often found necessary, in a well governed family, to resort to severe punishment far less frequently will this occur than where the authori ty is fitfully asserted aod irregularly maintained. We cannot too carefully remember that the discipline of a Christian household must be gentle and loving, as well a? firm and steady. St. Paul twice utters the injunction, "Provoke not your children to wrath," which uiay help us to realize how prone are even affctionate and well-meaning pa rec a to fall into this error. A harsh tone in commanding, or "grievous words" mingling with a need ed admonition or deserved rebuke, is too often a source of real unhappiness to an amiable child, and of angry and rebel lious emotions in the case of a stout hearted offender. Besides let us not forget that our children can readily discern between reproofs given in irritation or resent ment and those which are prompted by love and administered with Christian gentleness. The former can but arouse the evil passions of the child aod di minish the influence of the parent, wbilo the latter will seldom fail to touch the heart. As has been well said, "Commands which evidently flow from love natural ly dispose the heart to obey a ehild sees no hope of escaping from a system of discipline that seems to arise from the tenderness of a parent" A supreme love for the souls of our children, and a deep sense of our re sponsibility to God, oan alone inspire and enable us to maintain that gentle, yet firm, authority which we have en deavored to describe, and which is moat invaluable aid in "training up a child in the way ho should go." O E A N O I S E English letters Bay that the marriage of the Princess Louise with the Mar quis cf Lome was nit, according to late Eoglish gossip, by any means the love match it has been popularly supposed to be, aod the wedded pair are far fiom being happy together. Humor has it that the Princess inherits hermother's quick temper, and the two women had such frequent quarrels that the peace of the royal domestic circle was quite destroyed. The marriage of the Princess and her residence elsewhere being the only resource in the emergency, a cer tain number of youig noblemen were selected and invited to Windsor Cas and the Princess required to choose a husband fron among them. She and her choice fell on the young Marquis, but there was no more love between them than usually attends sueh business-like arrangements. The re* suit has been, that the Princess' tern* per is as bad as ever, only it is exercis ed on anew object. The exclusion of tlio Marquis from the royal circle, and the consequent separation ot him from hi- TI state occasions,is said to be .. fb .sa conjug-d differences, and not to any law of etiquette, It is even reported that not long ago the Queen was sent for, and went down to Claremont, the residence of the young couple, to prevent a complete rapture.
