And found that angel by her side- ., God grant but this I ask no more That when he leaves this world of pain, He'll wing his way to that bright shore, , And find the gate osearen again. , 6T. PETER'S REPLY. ; Full eighteen hundred years or more I've kept my gate securely tyled, There was no "little angel'' strayed. Nor one been missing all the while. I did not sleep as you supposed. Nor left the door of Heaven ajar, i Nor has a "little angel" left . And gone down with a falling star. Go ask that "Hushing bride,'' and see If she dent frankly own and say That when she found that angel babe, . She found it in the good old way. MY CHILD'S ORIGIN. Miscellaneous Selections. A STORY OF THE WAR. The Nashville Banner tells the story of George Vestal, of Maury county, Tennessee, a native of North Carolina, and a Quaker, who refused on conscien tious grounds to pay five hundred dol lars exemption fee demanded of the Friends by the rebel authorities, and was consequently conscripted.. He was taken to Tullaboma, where the obvious sincerity of his anti-war principles se cured for him the friendship of Gener als Maury and Polk, and he was releas ed.. He was again conscripted and sent to the Tennessee brigade in the armv of Virginia, and would suffer martyrdom rather than bear arms. , The officer, who was at that time commanding the brigade of Tennessee- ans, by reason of the capture of lien. Archer,, at Gettysburg, was irascible and arbitrary. He became very much en razed at Vestal's, retusaL and order ed the commandant of the fourteenth Tennessee to apply the bayonet, saying that he never yet saw tne man wnotn cold steel could not move. The Colo nel of that resriment acquiesced with reluctance, but he knew that it was his duty to obey. In a few days an in spection was ordered, when it became necessary to clean up quarters, arms, &&, and a detail was ordered to clean ud the regimental quarters, it Happen ed to be Vestal's turn, and the sergeant detailed him. He signified flatly hit. purpose not to go. His captain entreat ed him to comply. .Numerous mem bers of the regiment offered to pay the five hundred qollprs required by tbe law, rather than see him suffer punish ment He firmly declined,' assigning the same reasons, and alleging that the money would go into the treasury and be used to carry on tne war. Finally the guards were ordered to fix bayonets, and a shovel was banded him, with instructions ' to make him work. When the guards first handed him the shovel, he stated to them that if cleaning op camp was a punishment for not doing; military duty, he would clean np the entire camp, but if it was military duty, he would not The guard entreated him, argued the case with nim, begged mm to render tbe application of the bayonet unnecessary, He was inexorable, answering with a smile, "that the physical comfort was nothing compared with the hereafter, and he was willing to die for tbe faith that was in him." . Three men with sharp Enfield bayo nets then thrust them into the fleshy part of his thighs and buttocks, inflict ing in all thirty-five wounds, ranging in depth from one-fourth to one inch. Frequently he was knocked down with the butts of the guns, but as long as he had strength, he would turn one side and the other for J,he guards until finally they refused to inflict further punish ment At this juncture, tbe brave men who composed the old fourteenth regiment, became loud in their con demnation of this proceeding. The ex citement waa intense, and tad the Brigadier issued a second order of this character, he wouia nave ueen unamo to have had it executed. Vestal was confined several weeks to bed. After his recovery he was re leased from the guard house, upon bis promise not to escape. Most faithfully did he comply, for not many months afterward the command moved toward the southern portion of Virginia, where every opportunity wasonered tor escape, but he was always, in camp at night Shortly after his return from this ex pedition, charges were preferred against him, and he was tried and convicted of insubordination by a court-martial con vened at Orange Court House, and sen tenced to imprisonment in Castle Thun der, at Richmond, for the war, forfeit ing, all pay-and allowance. .At the evacuation of Richmond he was'etill in prison, and secured his release only by the downfall of the Confederacy.' , ; General Grant and the Old Soldier. ! ; During the year 1885 an bid soldier, named Lemuel Owens, was discharged from the arsenal in this city owing to some very abrupt reply he gave to a self-appointed Committee who were sounding him upon his politics. . t- ; As Owens had served' twenty-six years in the regular army, and had wound up his term of service on the Peninsula, under McClellan, he would allow no m;,n to question his right to rote, and boasted too, that he had served in the Fourth Infantry, under Grant, when the renowned chieftain was but a Lieutenant He told the committee he would go and see General Grant himself about the matter. They jokingly replied : "Do so old fellew; he'll make it all right." General Grant was temporarily living at Twentieth and Chesnut, Streets,1 in this city, when the veteran soldier trndged np with his story to th General's house. He stepped up rang bell,! and, went into the entry hall. When the servant appeared, and saw an old sunburned, poorly dressed man, he very promptly aked: "What do you want! ,.. . "I ' want to see General Grant," was j the calm reply. ' ' - "The' General s engaged, and cannot be seen. Have you got a card f . .. Just at this moment a little girl ap peared, and old Owens said to her, Sis, run up stairs and tell your fop 'an old Fourth infantry man wants to ree him." '- '' ' A message soon came down for the old soldier to come in,' when he was ushered into the ' presence of Gen. Grant ' He shook him by the hand and said, "General, don't you know me." The General replied that he had seen so many people of late that rt was hard to remember them all. Owens told- him when he served under him, and that he had been dis charged from his work, and that he had lost his eldest son from disease in tbe war, and his family had nothing to depend upon but his labor. Grant patiently listened to the old soldier's story, and, picking up his peD, wrote a few lines to the effect that Owens should have work as long as he wanted it The old man was not long in reach ing his former field of labor, armed with the formidable order, and when be pre Bented it, with the signature of the Com mander-in-Chief attached, it created much surprise, and the Veteran soldier was graciously acknowledged as entitled thenceforth to a respectable considera tion.

One of the most important events of this rather eventful year is the arrival from the Chinese Umpire of an fim baesy .to treat with this Government upon matters intimately affecting the interests and relations of China and the United States. It marks an era in the progress toward civilization of China, and marks also an epoch in the progress of this Republic toward the nrst posi tion in the'world. ' But a few years ago it was all an out side .barbarian's life was., worth to at tempt to scale the Chinese wall of pre judice, 'and break through the celestial barriers erected to keep out the unen lightened Europeans and Americans. To treat with them was next to impos sible, and to trade with the Chinese was attended with the greatest difficult ICS. ' ; .- . i I . - ., put now, not only have our commer cial and diplomatic relations with the Chinese Empire become of the most intimate character, but what is stranger still, one of our own countrymen has become the chosen Ambassador of this oldest government in the world, and the channel of communication with his own and with the leading European governments. ' The most important mission ever engage in by the oldest nation is entrusted to a citizen of this Government : The new Republic of the West becomes the leader and instructor, in the arts of diplomacy and peace, of the nation which was old when America was founded- One of the highest honors ever paid America was the selection of Mr. car- lingame to represent ' and act for the Government of China in matters which affect the trade and commerce of that Great Empire, with the whole civilized world. ...! ;. .' i We have every reason to expect that Mr, Burhngamrs 'mission will prove eminently successful, and that he will return to China to eojoy, new honors and receive still higher proofs of the confidence of the Government whose accredited 'Ambassador he is. 0.' ,8. Journal. Real Estate in New York. 1 estate owners, who were unsat isfied' with fair or even extraordinary returns on their investments, but who, in spite of the remonstrances of tenants, raised their rents, are now, many of them, reaping a just reward. ' For years with a few local or temporary exceptions real estate in this city has been paying, to its owners a larger percentage than any other equally safe investment, to say nothing of the fact that it has been constantly increasing in value at the rate of from 10 to 25 per cent a year, and yet, so long were landlords in the habit of raising their rents on the first of May, or whenever the leases expired, (hat the custom has become chronic. This year, however, hundreds of dealers, both wholesale and retail, and thousands of families, found, themselves with the balance on the wrong side of the profit and loss account, and felt that retrench ment must commence somewhere. On receiving the , customary notice "that rents had advanced since last year;" wholesale' dealers remonstrated; re tailers said that they should be obliged to return as journeymen to their trades; and h,eads of families announced their determination to remove to Brooklyn or Piew jersey, or eveu w irv wuoir fortunes in the country. Landlords generally were inexorable; they had heard such threats before, and threw out hints of other tenants standing ready to take possession of vacated property. For once they were deceived. Wholesale dealers went out of business or removed to cheaper stores; retailers left the palatial houses on the great thoroughfares for' less pretentious ones on smaller streets;, families went to Brooklyn and Jersey by thousands, and to day "To' Let" is posted on some of the moit costly wholesale stores down town, on more of. those occupied bv small dealers,' and on hundreds of dwellings,' from the richly-furnished Fifth avenue brown stone fronts to the mean tenements in the Fourth and Seventeenth Wards.

' " Last summer I was at a ' friend's house at Nahant I rose early in' tbe morning, and went down stairs to walk on the piazza. While there I heard, as I thought, some person whistling a ' tune in a very sweet style. I looked around, but could see no one. Where could the sound come from! I looked up and saw a little bird in a cage. I he cage was hung in the midst of flowers and twining plants. 'Can it be" thought I, "that such a little bird as that has been taught to sing a regular tune so sweetly f" I did not know ' what " to make of it When my fnend came down stairs s!ie told me ' that it was indeed the little bird who had whistled the sweet tune. Uhen my tnentl cnea out to the bird, "Come, Bully, Bully, sweet mtie cuunncn, give us just one . ..... ,. , . 1 more tune." And then tbis dear nttie bird hopped about the cage, looked at its mistress, and whistled another sweet tune. It was so strange to hear a bird whistle a regular tune ! "Now Bully," said my friend, "you must give us 'Yankee Doodle.' Come, come, yon shall have some nice fresh seed if you will ' whstle 'Yonkee Doo dle.' And the little thing did whistle it much to my surprise. " ' " ' My fnend then told me that she bad brought the bird from the little town of Funda, in Germany, where there are little schools for teaching these birds to sing. ' When a bullfinch has learned to sing two or three tunes he is worth from forty ' to sixty doi'arsj for he will bring that price in France or England. Great skill and patience are needed to teach these birds, tew teachers can have the time to give to the children nnder their charge so much care as these bird teachers giv to their bird pupils. - The " birds - arc put into classes of about six each, and kept for some time in a dark room. Here, when their food is given them, they are made to hear music, so that when they have eaten their food or when they want more food, they, will sing, and try to imitate tha tune they have just beard. v ibis tune tbey prob ably connect with tbe act ot . feeding. As soon as they begin to imitate a few notes, the light is let into the room, and this cheers them still more and makes them feel as though they would like to sing. In some of , these schools, . the birds are not allowed eitber light or food till they begin to sing. These are tbe schools where the teachers are most strict, 'After being thus taught in classes, each bullfinch is put under tha care of a bov.'who blavs bit or gan from morning till night, while the master or mistress of the bird school s. . t goes round to see low tbe pupils are getting on. The bullfinches seem to know at onue when they are scolded, and when they are praised by their master or mistress: and they like to be petted when they have done welt The training goes on for nine months; and then the birds have got their edu cation, and are ent-to fine land or France, and sometimes to. America to be sold. The Nursery, ' Circumlocution. At Cincinnati, a few years since, an unsophisticated darky waited upon military gentleman with a bill of 19.13 for washing done at the camp hospital, which, alter undergoing a rigorous scrutiny by the officer, was returned to him with the following explanation, which the astonished son of Ethiopia listened to with an equal amount f wonder and perplexity. : ' - ' "This bill," Baid the military gentle man, "will first have to be sent to the Quartermaster General at Washington: and he will report to., the Adjutant Utneral, and be will lay it before tbe Secretary of War for his approval. The Adjutant being sa tided, it will be sent to the Auditor of State, who will approve of it and send it to the Secreta ry of tbe treasury, who will send t to the United States Treasurer, who will at once dispatch an order to the Col lector of this port to pay the bill." Xbe darkey reieived bimself of a long drawn sigh. "Then, massa," he remarked, "dat last gemblam you spoke to, pays for de washing, does he !" "No," continued the other, "he will hand it to the Quartermaster; but as there are is no such officer here at presr ent, some proper person must be appoin ted by the Secretary of War, under direction of the President, and his appointment must' be approved by the Senate. Congress not being in'sessioa now, the commission cannot be issued until after it meets. , When this com mission is received, the Quartermaster will show it to the Collector; he will pay it, you giving your receipt . ... .

( The American Agriculturalist says : To haul 40 bushels of corn .50 miles on a wagon, would cost at least $12 for team, drirerTandexpehsea. " A railroad would " transport' it for M at most Allowing an average of 40 bushels per acre, the crop would be worth 9 more per, acre, or 8 per cent on $ 1 00. As the relative advantage is about the same for other crops, it is clear that a railroad passing through a town would add 1110 per acre to the value of farms.. .A town lo miles square contains .6 4,000 acres. An increase of $100 per acre is equal to 96,400,000, or enough to build 20O miles' of railroad, even rf it cost 32 per mile. . But SOU miles of road would extend throagh twenty towns ten miles square, and cost 1 10 per acre if taxed upon tjie land. These figures are given merely as an illustration. If the fanners had -taxed themselres to build all tbe railroads in this country, and given them away to any companies that stock and run them, the present value of their lands would hare well repaid all the outlay, -- .:' - -
