Sister! we have longed to speakitI We have waited long to save i We have yearned to speak the welcome ' "Enter-.be no more a slaver' Every tear. that full, we saw it, As we braced to meet the shock ; Now! Come in-the door is open, Sit thou here by Plymouth Rock I We have seen thee all disheveled, . Seen thee bend with trembling lip, When the men who should have loved thee Raised again the lrutal whip. But we knew their day was coming; As we know their day has come ; Ring their doom, Louisiana I Massachusetts drives them home! Queen then wort is all thy sorrow; Qtteet4thou shalt be yet in pride, Many4throned Columbia calls thee When her queens sit side by side. And thy regal robes are ready, And thy crown is on the throne, For we knew our Cinderella Would comeback;to claim her own. Nevermore shall one be driven To the desert: nevermore Shall the children of the Union, On their brethren bar the door. God be thanked for love grown stronger; Heart and hope go hand in hand, WVe are North and South no longer But a great United Laud ! Origin of the Maxseillaise. The story of the origin of the Mar seillaise hymn has frequently been told, and is probably generally known, but the romance with which' it is in' vested is so well rendered by Lamar tine that it will bear repetition par ticularly at a time when the world is interested in everything belonging to the nationality of the country of which it is the national hymn. La. martine tells as that "there was at this time-1792-a young officer of artillery in the garrison at Strasburg. His name was Rouget do Lisle. He was born at Lons-le-Saulnlo r in the Jura, a country of reveries and euer gy, as mountainous regions always are. Thistle young man loved war as ened the tediousness of the garrians Generally sought on account of his double talent as a musician and a po et, he became a familiar visitor to the house of an Alsatian patriot, Diet. rich, mayor of Strasburg. The wife and daughters of Dietrich shaied his enthusiasm for patriotism and revo lution. They loved the young of ficer. They inspired his heart,. his poetry, and his musicle and 'trusting to the early lispings of hit genius, they were the first to execute his scarcely expresed thoughts. It was in the winter of 17t2; famine reigned in Strasburg, the Dietrich' family were poer, and their table was frugal, but it was always hospitable to Roe. get. One day, when there was noth sg on the board but some ammunl ton-hbread and few slices of haih, Dhttleh lookIugM Dee with mel ieaneholy, calmess said to him: 'Abrndauee is, wanting at qor ban quet, but what matters that when neither ebthusiasm is wanted at ot civic feoat, no Courage In the hearth of our soldierst 'I have still a beh tIe of win left in my cellar; let it be brought up, and let us drink to liberty and our country. There will soon be a patri6tle celebration at Stnrbnrg/ tmay these last!drops in spiye pe Jsle with one of those lymis which convey to the soul of the peo ile the intozicatiol from whence they proeed.' The young girls applaud ed, brought in the wine, and filled the glasses of their aged father and the young oicer until the liquor was exhausted. It' was midnight. The night was cold. .De Lisle. wea in a dreamy state jhbis heart waq.tacehed;, Ela beiul was heated.

Ii will be seen that they don't think auch of our staple this year in England. We have this week examined a sample of cotton from Northern Tex as, which is but little, if any, better to point of staple than Bengals. the lowest quality of East India cotton. Thissample *as bright and clean, and fronm appearance would have classed nearly good middling but the staple was so very short and woolly that its nominal mtrket value was td to 7id. We fear that much of the crop grown in all those sections where the drought was so very severe in August last will prove to be somewhat similar. We would advise our friends to ex ercise great caution in handling such cotton. Last season we heard a good deal about "the excellent quality of the Anmerican erop, its redloed waste and better expending value," that is, the large per entage of yarn which it would yield in proportion to the weight of raw material, The crop of 1873--4 certainly was a good stapled one,bbat If the erop of thie season is as poor as we now bare reason to be. lieve it is, this should he taken into account in future calculations. - Shreveport Times. 4 Pillows long need aquire a dies greeahle odor.
