How oft amid the sordid strife Of worldly visions have I turned To memory's scenes of early life,. And o'er my joyous boyhood mourn' ed: How oft have wished, 'mid care and pain. To be that Joyous boy again. To sleeo beneath the slanting roof, And hear the pattering rain-drops fall. Or listen to the lively proof Of vagrants round my airy hall ; Vet rise at morn with wanted glee, To wade the brook or climb the tree. To join the sturdy reaper's train. What tune the lark lier matin sings. When mounting with impassioned strain She bathes in light her glittering wines. And poised in air is scarce hr seen So high amid the dazzling sheen. Twas mine to trap beside the stream, Or angle 'neath the alder shade, To tend the plow, to drive the team, Or seek the herd in distant glade. Where oft from clustering thickets shrill Rang out the notes of whip-poor-will Those trembling notes, so long, so wild, Were music to mv boyish ear; Thought backward flies and as a child E'en now methinks the sound I hear: n nue inner spreads oerore mv eve. The dewy glade and moonlit sky. The 'lowingherd' now wendiuz slow Along the wood their homeward way; The winding stream's dark glassy flow, The limed vale, the woodland gav, Still float in visssons broad and bright, As on that balmy bummer's night. When standing on the distant hill. With boy-born fancies wauilenng nee. I saw no 8pectred form of ill Kise in the bright futurity; But all, instead, was joyous, clear. Buoyant with hope, untouched with fear. Oh, these were boyhood's cloudless hours. And sweet on wings unsullied flew; But pride soon dreamed of loftier bow ers, And wealth her golden lustre threw O'er tempting scenes, as false as fair, And bade my spirit seek her there. And I have sought her not in vain, I might have piled her treasures high, But that I scorned her sordid reign, And turned me from her soulless eye; I could not delve her dirty mine, And would not worship at her shrine. I would not stop to flatter power, For any vile and selttsu end; I would not change with every hour My faith, ray feelings or ray friend ; And least of all would I entrust My hopes to the accursed dust. The God that reared the woodland heights. And spread the flow'rv valleva wide. And waked within my mind delights That spurn the lures of human pride; And, stern, forbade in accents known, To worship aught beneatii His throne. THE SURGEON'S STORY. "Will you buy my body, sir?" I, Charles Markham, a young phy sician, was sitting alone in- the dus ky little room that the sign without signified with the title or "office, when these words fell upon my ears. I had just returned from visiting the few patients I could boast of, thoroughly heart-sick at the want of humanity in the world, wet to the' skin, and more than half froze. I never remember of a worse night in all respects. It was cold as the Arctic, bluster ing, and the sleet that rattled upon the window soon covered them with a coat of ice. It had stormed heavily all da), the stores were closed, and the side-walk venders driven to shel ter. "God help any one that is forced to be abroad to-night," had been thought as I . hurried along after fin ishing my professional duties, aud breasted my way homeward But scarcely had I reached it, changed my saturated garments, coaxed the sparkling anthracite into a cheerful glow and made myself com fortable, and begun building castles in Spain of the time I should have a lucrative practice, ride in my car riage, and own a brown-stone front, when the strange and heart-chilling words fell npon my ears, causing all my pleasant fancies to drift away in an instant. "Will you buy my body, sir?" I sprang from my easy chair, drop ping my well colored merschaum in my astonishment, and turned to see who it was, that, like Poe's raven, had uttered those terrible words. "Will you buy my body, sir?' The question was repeated for the second time, before I had sufficiently recovered myself to be convinced that it came from no ill-omened bird, but from a form of human semblance, at least Yet the question was so utter ly unusual, so much at variance with all preconceived notions of barter and sale that all I could do was to push a chair toward the intruder, and stand in silent wonderment. In a few moments the self-command I had learned during my hos pital practice, came to my aid, and I saw that my visitor was a woman or a girl, rather, for she could not have been more than nineteen or twenty at the utmost; and that, if it had not been for the extreme pallor of the face, the pinched-up look about the mouth, and the sad, sunken eyes, she would have possessed, far more than is ordinarily the case, the gift of beauty. - The nickering ngnt or tne nre flashed upon the soft, brown hair, giving it more golden glory, and dis- solving the snow-naKes inai uaa lodged there, making them glitter like liquid pearls. This much, and that the dress and shawl were made of the cheapest material, and but a poor defense asrainst the bowling storm and pittiless cold, and the stranze reauest darted asain with lightning rapidity through my brain, "Draw nearer to the fire," said I. "You are numbed. , Warm yourself, and "I have no time, and must not! stay," she answered with a si though she dropped heavily into chair, and brushed away the snol drops from her face with her th hands. -Without waiting for further monstrance, I hastened to get soi reviving medicine, of which I she stood much in need, and witli gentle force held it to her lips. "I cannot, I cannot," she gasp half pushing it away. "You must," I insisted. member that I am a physician, t this is a prescription, and that y life may depend upon it. Life! Oh, God! How long i sad! Will it give me strength?"' "That certainly is the object I have n urging rou to take it. What else should it be?' i.l "Give it me." And she swallowed it down with out a murinar, save one of thankful ness. I wheeled her chair up nearer the fire, and stirred the coals to a more brilliant glow, hoping that the potion would quiet her excitement, awake the chilled blood to a warmer, swifter glow, and that sleep would follow. And for a moment, I was right. The little hands dropped nervously into her lap; the softly veiled lids dropped over the deep-blue eyes; the head fell forward upon the breast. But alas! it was a momentary delu- siou. lu anotuer instant sue sprang to her feet again, pressed her hands upon her temples, as if to still their th robbings, and looked wildly around. "Oh, God!" she exclaimed, "I here. amid warmth and comfort, and " Convulsive sobs choked any fur ther utterance. "Set down and tell me the reason of your coining here," I almost com manded, as I placed her in the chair. "Ah! I remember all now. Re member! Is there no such thing as forgetfulness? Yes, I remember all. came here to to " "Be calm, I understand you are in need, and came for assistance." I came," she replied, and looked on me with utter despair; and spoke so calmly that it made my blood run cold; "I came here, doctor, to sell you my body. was I talking to a woman or a ma niac? The latter was certainly my thought; but I could detect nothing n the clear, blue eves of the wander- ngs of insanity. "Sell her body!" She spoke of it as au" everyday trans action. "Great heaven!" I exclaimed, lay- ng my lingers upon ner pulse with the expectation of . Sndinir it bounding with race-horse rapidity; but on the contrary, finding it more calm than my own. "Great heaven ! yon can not be in earnest!" "I am in earnest dod alone knows how much in earnest It was my last resort1. Will you buy it?" And she reached out her hand to ward me, as a miser would have done, who heard the dear sound of jingling gold. 'How can I purchase it when you are still alive?" "But I will soon be dead, and then then you can claim it For the love of heaven give roe a little, just a little money." Aud the hitherto dry e3-es were flooded with tears. "Why do you wish to sell! lou cannot but understand that it is an n heard of proceeding. Our profes sion never purchase bodies (how I shuddered as 1 gazed into her face while I was forcing myself to calmly utter the words) before death, no matter what they do after." "I know it; but I must have money, and there is no other means lett me to get it. I must have it now in stantly." And she would have risen again. but I resolutely held her down. "For what purpose do you want it?" "To purchase food, fire, medicine," "For yourself?" "Ah ! no. Had that been the case never would have come hither. I would have laid down in the gutter nd died. God knows how willing- "But tell me," she continued, al most fiercely, "will you give me some money? I must have it must have t?" 4 If not for yourself, in the name of heaven for whom do you make such a fearful sacrifice? Is it for one who is very near and dear to 3'ou?" "It is is my little sister." The words dropped from her tongue as they might from those of an angel, and her face wore as holy a light as if she had been already star- crowned. "Then she is sick?' "She is dying! -dying! and I am sitting idly here!" "Why did you not tell me this br fore?' tecanse I had begged so long in vain. 1 had no mouey to pay tne doctor, and who would go forth on such a night as this without it?' Aly blood boiled so that I could not answer. Uouid there be such menf Alas! reason told me in a moment that her words were but too true, and I almostcursedmy race. .With out delay I gathered up such things as 1 thought might be of service, wrapped the delicate form in a heavy cloak, and, with a few whispered words of comfort, we sallied out to gether into the black night, and mer ciless storm and cold. Fortunately the distance we had to travel was but a short one. A few blocks passed, and she led ine up several flights of dismal, creaking stairs, into a room. "Florence, is that you?' I heard asked by what my ear convinced me was a pair of childish, almost infant ile lips. les, my darling, lie still for a moment - I am so glad.

One scantily-covered bed was all! But within, I $aw a sweet fate that made me forget all else. I approached it, and laid my band on; the pulse of the little suf ferer. - ; "Who are yon?" she asked, draw ing back in alarm. "He Is a doctor, Bessie, dear; i dear, good, kind friend," replied her sister; and from that moment she became ; perfectly passive in my hands. It did not require one learned in the science of materia medicaid see what was required. I made the proper prescription, -saw that it was tenderly administered, told the eldest sister that I would be bark in a few minutes, and resisting all attempts to light me down stairs, groped my way into the street. I had noticed an eating house at but little distance, as we came along, and a statement of the case, backed by the all-powerful king of the world, gold, soon pro cured -the loan of a disused stove, a couple - of chairs, fuel, light and proper food, and in a brief half hour the little room wore something like an air of comfort Another hour the eyes of the child were closed in slum ber, and I urged her sister to seek repose, but in vain. "At least lie down and let me cover you with my cloak," I urged. "No, doctor," was the constant re ply. "I cannot I'm so happv. It must have been God that directed my wandering footsteps, to you." . And 90 we sat with the night wind roaring without, watching the almost angelic face of the peacefully slum bering child sat and talked of what I was most anxious to hear. Bat the conversation of those long, . dark hours can be condensed into a very brief space. , She would have sold het body for the sake of giving little Ion-ret; life to her sister, was the daughter of at least supposed wealth. But a few 3'ears previously she could have held her head as high as the highest. Both birth and education fitted her for it But misfortune came a se ries of disasters upon land and sea, against which no human forethought could guard, combined with treach ery and ingratitude of the deepest dye,8wept away all. In their foot steps followed the death of their mother, leaving an infant but a few months old. The fond father strug gled against the tide manfully, for a brief time, when his health gave way, and he followed his wife through the dark valley, and beyond the shining river, leaving the elder sister to pro vide for the younger. "For a time." continued the poor girl, "I was able to live comfortably by the sale of the furniture and ar ticles of value I possessed. Then why should I unbosom myself to a stranger?' she asked, stopping sud denly, and looking me full in the face. "Because,' I replied, with a smile at hcr earnestness, "because you have found a true heart and one that can feel for you." "Yes, may heaven be thanked! I feel that it is so. Well, I struggled on no, fought were the better word," she continued, with the lines about her mouth suddenly becoming hard. "I fought for life, sometimes teach ing, sometimes sewing in short do ing anything that my strength per mitted, until sickness came; still I did not give way to despair. Truly I was bound to the stake a sweet one my darling sister. Of the in sults I received while seeking for work, I will never speak. They must remain forever locked up in my breast;" and the pallid face flushed to scarlet even at the thought "And found no employment?' "None. Piece by piece I parted with the little furniture that I was the possessor of, nntil what you Bee was all that remained. "My poor child." - "It is true" I saw she was nerving herself to tell something that was painful, and would have stopped her, but she resolutely continued: "It is true some money was offered me by more than one man, but I instantly and indignantly hurled it back in my iusulter's face. Then, great heaven! upon this bitir night with all my hope gone, I determined to sell my body to some surgeon." "What in the name of heaven could have put such an idea in your head?' "I don't know. I cannot ' tell. Somewhere I had either read it or heard something of the kind." "You must have been very desper ate." ' . "On the verge of distraction. I had but one dream, one desire to save my darling even a single hour of pain." "Have you no relatives" "Not a single one that I know of. Both of my parents were only chil dren when their parents came from foreign lands." - She paused and turned to smooth the hair of the slumbering Bessie, and imprint a kiss on the curl-wreathed and snowy brow; and I thought what desperate trials one like her must have passed through in order to look calmly upon giving herself to the knife, and the ribald jests of the ssecting room ! And Rhonght too. the sterling truth of her young eart that could resist the allurements f gold, when so hedged by want and pain in their most terrible shapes. I thought" too bat she interrupted me by saying: " "My kind indeed, 1 might say only friend whom God raised up for me in the hour when all was dark ness and misery, and black death and a pauper's grave stared me in the face. My. kind friend but I am have been keeping you from your rest" "Me! A physician's rest is one that is constantly broken in upon and will you pardon me?

Mie took my hand and pressed it to her lips, leaving a warm, lingering kiss upon it Did I suddenly bnild any castles in Spain? When the morning light broke again over the gay city, the storm had passed, aud nature smiled coldly, it is true, but brilliantly. There was a peaceful breakfast served in that lit tle room, but the dinner was served in far other quarters. As I write these lines, I, witn some, at least of my dreams of wealth and position realized, sit in a cozy stud)', and listen to the wrathful bowlings of the tempest without. There is a beautiful, brown-haired woman sew ing near, and a sprite of a girl dec orating a snow-white kitten with crimson ribbons, on the rug in front of the glowing grate. I looked up suddenly from the book I was read ing, at the former. Our eyes met Are we both thinking of the past? It may be so. She steals softly be hind my chair, and twines her arms arou nd my neck. ".Darling, do you remember such a night as this, scarcely a year ago?' she said. "Yes; I was thinking of it" "And of what brought me to you?" "Yes." She bends still nearer to me. I feel her warm breath upon my cheeks. I feel her fervent kiss such a one as only a young and lovely wife can give, and I hear, as it were whispered rather by spirit than by mortal lips. "Now, my darling, I am yours, body and soul." Thet were sure they would catch Grant this time. The witness was called to testify; the Democrats were tm tip-toe with expectation; the U- publicaiK were interested, but ig norant and fearful. The doors of the committee room were closed, the marvellous story was told, and here it is, as related by the correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette. Said the witness: Some years ago a person in high station did him a great injury; it be came important to the peace of mind of that great personage that the wit ness should be harmless. He hired detectives and soon hurried him to the Government mad house. He was kept there friendless and power less for months, when one day the agents of this great personage ap proached him, giving him choice be tween life imprisonment with luna tics, or a life of exile in Europe. He chose the latter. The detectives ac companied him to the steamer, and he left for Europe. Becoming weary of Europe he returned, and appeared befor'e the committee to day to tell the story. The committee seemed paralyzed in fact with astonishment on their part witn tuanoucai joy. "Who was that great personago that wronged you?' asked the Chairman. "The President of the United States," was the reply. "What wrong did he do you?' There the witness paused; he would die pelore he would tell; it was a delicate suoject, ana should not be mentioned. For an hour the committee plied him with questions; they threatened him with imprison ment with severe punishment with the terrors of contumacy. At last the witness yielded. He said that the President of the United States had done hi in a mortal wrong; that he had ruined his (the witness') be trothed, and since that time the wit ness had been a prescribed and per secuted man. Hence, those detec tives; hence those mad-honse bars. The President had frequently come to the bouse of the witness at the dead of night and had importuned him at his bedside not to ruin his great fame. But interrupted a Re publican member, now oia tne res ident get to your bedside at that time of night Did he ring the bellr The climax had come; the Demo crats were enthusiastic in their joy, and were just ready to render their verdict against the President when the witness quietly interfered, "I want you to understand, gentlemen, that President Grant in the Doay.never uia me or mine harm; he has only done me that great wrong as a spirit" The collapse came. The witness was mad-man. The committee instant ly discharged him, and immediately ordered the stenographer to suppress his notes, and begged the Republican members to keep the matter silent One of the latter, with a good deal of indignation, said that be hoped he might be as mad as the witness, tr he kept stilL In this way the Demo crats of the Committee on Expendi tures in the Interior Department caught the President . If the Democratic party wishes to be saved from such disgraceful scenes as this, they must stop sending pumpkin heads to Congress.

A rowing regatta has been decided npon, to take place upon the Schuyl kill course in July, and after much trouble and anxiety, the committee has completed arrangements with foreign and domestic clubs, which will make this naval tournament one of the events of the season. Prizes have been offered to the amount $3000, which is thought sufficient secure the best talent One of the branches which the Board of Agriculture will have under its care is a dog show, which will take place during the first week September. Entries, for this show will close on the first of July, and many, indeed, have already been made, as the prizes offered in this class xn nancrom mid large. " Sport ing dogs naturally rank first and their breed and merits will be con sidered most carefully by the judges although they will have no oppor tunity of determining the latter by seeing them work.

A party of about fifty Indians have arrived in the city, under the charge of the famous Texan Scout, George Anderson, who are to remain here during the summer in lodgings and Indian tents upon a reservation made for them near the Japanese buildings. About 250 more are expected to join them, as every tribe of importance is to be represented by delegates of both sexes. Those already here have been escorted over the grounds and through the buildings, but they ex hibit no enthusiasm or wonder at the immensity of the undertaking, or the beauty or value of any of the exhib its, and indeed an occasional "good"' followed by a lazy grunt was all that could be elicited from them. Their guides suspected they were trying the Mark Twain dodge upon them, but if they did, they played their part so well that no one has found them out Venezuela is preparing for a large exhibit in tlio mineral and agricul tural departments and when it is known that at Vienna this small country received twenty-three medals and one grand diploma, while the United States received hut two grand diplomas, the power of Venezuela to acquit herself creditably will not be doubted. Five swarthy Turks are attracting not a little attention now just north of Machinery Hall, where they are erecting a structure 14 feet by eight for the purpose of selling chess boards, paper weights, napkins, rings and other fancy articles, manufac tured from wood from the valley of Hebron, the Mount of Olives, Naza reth and other sacred localities. They will also have on hand nails and pieces of wood from the true cross ad libitum and thousands of the Sacred relics which are only to be found in every monastery, nunery and old church in almost every town in Europe. They are dressed in Sy rian costume, loose woolen trousers, fastened with a highly colored sash, a bright waist coat adorned with large buttons, an overcoat in the Oc cidental style and the characteristic red scull cap. Their "Boss" speaks English very well, having been edu cated on Mount Zion, at Bishop Go bat's Episcopalian school, but the others, though sharp and intelligent do not yet make any attempts beyond their original vernacular arabic. Physically they are more lazy even than the majority of the inhabitants of those Southern climes, anil spena more time in smoking cigarettes and long pipes than they do at their work, still as their mansion is not large, they expect to be ready to display all their trinkets before the three weeks that remain are past Her Majesty Queen Victoria has directed the following productions by herself and the members or her family to be forwarded to the Expo sition: Twenty-six etchings, Dy ner Majesty; two table napkins, spun by her Majesty: a banner screen, em broidered by her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice; a table-cloth, em broidered by the Princess Louise of Hesse and Princess Christiana or Schleswig-Holstein; two drawings of flowers, by her Royal Highness Prin- cess louise. tne Aiarcmoness ui . . . . r - r Lome; all of which will be brought to Philadelphia Jn the early part of next month. - Don Pedro, the Emperor of Bra zil, arrived in New York last week, and after spending a day or two in looking at the city, started off for San Francisco.

From Lebanon. of to .of Thinking that many would like to hear a word from Lebanon, about its situation ami institutions, we shall en deavor to give a brief outline of them. Lebanon has been a town for eighty years. It is small, and contains from three to four thousand inhabitants, soma of whom are old settlers. Most of the buildings are of old date and style. It is eiegautly laid out into large squares. Its streets nun east and west, north mih! south, and ar well macadamised. Its sidewalks are not laid with the costliest stone, but are of the most riurahl !which are found in great quantities out- sineoi ineewv. It is called the foasil Iferons limestone, and was formed du ringhe palaeozoic period. Were Gallia county as full of limestone as this coun ty, then, would be some chance of hav ing a turnpike, unless the people vote it down a the did a few vearsago. Lebanon Is situated about five miles north of South Lebinoii, (a depot of the Little Miami R. 11.) in a verv fer tile region, a HIT Foimnrf hr,nyrnn ltlg lands in Ohio, and every foot of ground cj.il be tilled, hut cannot eulti- vain mnn viuea iiKe you can tn some parts Gallia.
