Cease, Charity, thy Christian deed; Love, leave thy happy home : And hearts that joy, and hearts that bleed Unto the burial come. From every State, from all the wor!d, To Freeom a grave we flee, The white man's into bondage hurled, The colored man set free ! A star is stricken from the sky, And falls in wavering light; A sister States's despairing cry, Rings out into the night. Let Freedom's banner now be faried, Proclaim the sad decree : The white man's into bondage hurled, The colored man set free! Bright bayonets glisten in the sun, And merrily rank and file Follow the tap of the sti:ring drum, Withi insolent, haughty smile.

Ereninq Post. . Address of the Demooratic Mem bers of the South and Southwest. Waqhington, Fleb. 18.-The follow ing address has just beesn prepared by the Democratic members of the South and Souethwest: To the People,of the Southern States: t You have' confided to the under signed in this conjuncture of affairs the delicate and' difficult task of guarding in the Federal Congress , your public interest, your rights and your reputation. You will therefore, n. pardon the liberty we take of ad dressing yoft it'a period so critical, upon a mhtter affecting your destiny and that of your posterity. You can not have Jed to observe the persia Ethe a- inintrty torivie the ln h imosities of the late war, which hap pily, are fast giving place to a spirit of concord and unity in every sec tion of our common country. It is impossible to predict certainly the i effect of these appeals to passion. We believe that through the honest 1 representation of upright and con scientious Federal officers and agents, an independent and able public press, and of many citizens, withoat regard to party, the true condition of South era States and the real sentiment of the Southern people are being gradu ally made known. t our fellow-citi sons of the North.. We hope for their t favorable decision when fully appriz ed of all'the facts. The great end of good government 'will be reached ( when the people of all sections forget r that we have ever been enemies, and h come together as in the early days of the republic, emulating each other c only in devotion to the best interests ti of the whole country. With this ex- ti ilted purpose in view, thqre is noth ing inconsistent with the honor and d manhood of a bravo people to resolve o to stufer with heroic patience what- A ever be their provocations anl wrongs, looking through the fearful present S to a hopeful future, :and repelling un just 'epithets and gratuitous. insults A with digifed moderation. Let every white man iu every neighborhood in the.whole South regard himself as a n mcomnissioner of the peace, maintain- P lng. the kindliest relations towards the - black man,. rememberiig that the ret possibility for the extreme poverty hI to which.we have been reduced, and at the .corrupt governmaents to which H his vote has subjectdL us, rests not so much ujipn him as upon the bad men who with the aserance of Fed m eral support have by appeals to his worst passions anounh ,to, make him our enemy while ie labor by all honest means to convince him of the truth that our interest and his are identical, and that both muset be pre,. served by good government,. an·d that those who pstr up sttire between' us are the enemies of bothli race. Let us t at the same time seelhat he is. fully ca :protected in his guaranteed: rights to ac vote as lie pleases ii all elections. hi Let us continue to deal with' him honestly and fairly, abd let us con- de tinse cordially, to invite: to our midst if those of any political p~arty who either in ,seek $to know the truth or to find Ti hoepnei ipon our soil. 'We do not ex aggerate when we admonish of 'the wi disheartning fact that every street c disturbance, every homicide of what- ma ever character, by whomsoever com- hi mitted, by black or white, Repubohlican or Democrati sueh.as Are incident to t every communityupom earth, is per vertediato evidence ~n4d a purpose to aecomplish politidal ends.

'There warn't no polities in them days, ti and sn old Prodigal didn't get any " fool notion in his head of running * .for Governor, lie just tended.strict- f ly to the agricu'tooial business, and ti threw money down into the bart:il hand over first.

He played it on the soilp-houses and free th lunches for a while, but lie got bonne. in, ed at last and sent to the rock pile te for a vag. When lhe came out, the e duthed sneak started home to git an other stake. Old Prodigal took haim tk in, and got up a barbecue, and put iup pii for him generally.

And when the old man anI took his I)ur:ham calf, that lie Was a ilo thttenin' for the fair, and made veal set of it for his brother, he got on his tie ear and called old Prod's hand. Then tdh old Prodigal laid it down like this- an, 'There is more joy over ninety-nine sinners which return than over one I who don't go off.' That's Scripture, at but I think that galoot as come a thi sneakin' back after he got broke, was see a blamed sneezer, and ought to been tea bounced off the farm. Pa A WOMAN FORT" YEARS A SOLDIER. -A Paris correspondent says : An office of tlhe first Empire. aged seventy-eight, who has for forty-one years been living on the modest pen sion of 800 francs a year, was recent ly compelled to enter the Hospital Neckev. and was there discovered to be a woman. Her name is Deo Sen keisen, and the secret being out she readily related 1ier history. Sihe was ,fourteen years old when her father, Col. Von Senkeisen, died, and her grandfather, who commandedui Ba. varian corps in the French service, frunil ome inexplicable caprice, cornm pelted her to enter one of the regi ments of his division. She served in Germany and in Spain, and at Water loo received two sonmewhat severe wounds. In 1833 she became a nat uralized Frenchman, and obtained a retiring pension. She has congratu latory letters from Marshals Berthier, Angerean and Schet, and from Gen. Dupont, testifying to her bravery and good service. A very hospitable lady, who does not liveove'r fifty miles from Utica gaVe a party for her friends among the young misses and masters the, other evening. Round dances were proposed,, when the lady said: "I cannot allow you to have any round dances. If any of the Edys :wish to hug the girls,'let them sit down upon the totes, anid go right at it in earnest, but--to round dances, mind you !" Was't that seusille ? All the difference I can see between the late Artemus Ward and U. 8. Grant is that while the former was williag to sacrifice his own and wife's relations and friends to save the country, the latter is willing to sa trifice the country, to savey his' own and his wife's relations and friends. Hiram Green, Esq. Questions put to bih Hweelheart b1y a bashf ul lad, during their ehtc-a-tile: How's your father f How's your mother t How are your parents ? How are your father ,and motlher? How are they both ? "My dear," said a wife to her bhns band, '-do you know what is the most curious thing ill the world ? "Yes, madam," gruffly answered the brute, 'thbe most curious thing in the world s'a4 woman who is noot erions."

Ar- RlUr!A SAL AD .-Take about eight "Y Mnediimn-sized potatoes, nicely boiled T'e s and Ienly ; and while hot, with a the silver fork break (hem into little a.ri- pieces ahnt the size of Fmall nuts. the Boil hard five or six eggs, .lop the new whites and yelks sepaiately; take '.I', about half a large tumblerful of best LIca oil, a little vnuegar, pepper, the s:lt, capers ; a couple of chopped an ad- chovies, if for a fish salad, or the liv 'ery er of a fowl bruised in the sance, if Rle- tlr a fowl, is a great improvement; ice if the latter. chop the meat into small in- pieces, if fish, shred it into little bits. tnt. Take half the eggs and lmix with iet. sauce. place it in the dish you in s s, tend serving it in ; smooth the sur an. face cover it lighly with the remain li. tier of tie chopped eggs, and gar ud nish with pickles and beet root cut cal into shape, with a tiny bunch of the flowers in the centre. The great ad ie vantage of this dish is that you may e. put with your potatoes any scraps of. rs. meat or ti.h you happen to have cold, g anid it makes a very pretty supper ;e dish. Yon must regulate the quanti ag. ty of oi by the meat. you put. in the salad, is some mseats and fish are nnch l tore dry thtan others. The a object i l breaking the potatoes while , hot: wit a. silver fork is .that they are nmnch more light than if cut when , ek cold with a steel instrumeht. Is ea Keep the lillk-.Room Sweet.--Milk ,d and cream are great absorbentl of hle the gauwi and fltvors that are floating ,c. it the air.

Milk kept unoder4 g such conilitions sungt acquire an nn t- plesant flaror, and must impartit il to the b tter. What is worse, thi ji, air of sulth kitchens uniformly shows rs that the-eanein of the milk fhas com is menced ts putrefactive process tp ,ý which it has a great tendendency in its Sfltiid state, the decompositon doubt' t. less being hastened by the gerasp, of il decay which are. constantly floating d in the atmosphere of such a room, a, and=Widch find a goodd':a'ledbii ithe milk pans. No wonder that some , dairy-women say that they cannot ii make sweet butter in winter, then t they expose their cream a week' le fore churning to such, contaminating Sinuluencees.-Practical Fairwer . e Afternoon Tea Cakes.-Dry before s the fire a quart of fine flour and rob into it a quarter of a pound of but ter; then, ,,beating up a couple of: n eggs with two tablespoonfuls of yeast,, pour the whole into the center of the flour, and keep mixing it well with a P pint of warm new milk.

Mending with Plaster.--fyoq :imve a crack in the wall in the corner of the room or anywhere else, do hot send for the plasterer, but get five "ot^ ten cents' worth of dry. plaster of. Paris; wet with cold water; then take your finger and rub it into the crevice till it is smoothl. Bad nail holes in the wall can he done in the samne way. Should the top of your lamp become loose, take it off and wasihn it with soap; wash the glass also, then put the plaster around ths glass; put thie brass top on again, let it stand untl hardened, and it is ready for use again. A lamp should never be filled quite fall, as the kero-, sene softes the plaster.--lural Hose. Eggs by Weight.--The. legislature. of Massachusett hlas lately passed a. law making it necessary that a dozn eggs weighl one and one-half ponndt 'This is a move in the right direetion,~ and we Ihope that, all of the other States may speedily follow the good example oet by Massachusetts. It is annoying to the breeder of blooded' and fine lewls to find, when he offers for sale eggs nearly twice as large as his neighlbors, that they bring 1o more per dozen than do thie smaller ones. Also, thie consumer is often vexed to find that lie must pay the same price to-day for a dozen eggs weighing Ibut a pound that he yes-: terday Ipaid for a dozen weigting a pound andl a Ihalf.
