[The following beautiful poem was reeited at the close of the funeral obervances at Savanrah. Georgia, on the occasion of the rinterment of Confederate sol dierts who fellt at GettysburgS:] Gather the sacred dust Of warriors tried and true, Who bore the flag of our nation': trust And tell in the cause, though lost still just And died forms and you. (Gather them one and all! From the private to the chief, Come they from hovel or princely hall, They fell for us, and for them should fall The tears efa Nation's grief. Gather the corpses strewn O'er many a battle plain; From many a grave that lies so lone,. Without a name sand witLot a stone, Y Gather lif tsra sptl ý e care not whence they eame, Dear in their lifeless clay I Whether unknown, or known to fame, Their cause and country still the same They died-and wore the Gray. Wherever the brave had died, They should not rest apart, Living they struggled asie by side Why should the hand of death divide A single heart from heart? Gather their scattered clay, Wherever it may rest; Just as they marched to the bloody fray; Just as they fell on the battle day; Bury them breast to breast. The feeman need not dread This gathering of the brave ; Without sword or lag, and with a soundless tread, We muster once more our deathless dread ; Ou t of each lonely grave. The foeman need not frown, "They are all powerless now We gather them here and we lay them down, And tears sad prayers are the only crown We bring to wreathe each brow. And the dead thus meet the dead, Walls the living o'er them weep; And the men whom Lee and Stonewall led, And the hearts that once together bled, Tegetuer still shall leep. From the Diary of a Detective.] THE COINERS. During the year 1847 the West was flooded with counterfeit coin. It was so wel manufactured that it passed readily. The evil at last became so great that the United States authorities requested that a skillful detective might be used to ferret out the rest of eisers. I ere fied upes to perform that dety. I had nthing to guide me. The fact. however, that Chicago was the city where the counterfeit coin was most abundant, led me to suspeot that the manufactory was somewhere within its limits. It was, there fore, to the capital of the West that I pro ceeded. I spoet five weeks is the city without gaining the slightest dels to the counterfeiters. I began to grow discouraged, and really thought I should be obliged to retuor home without having achieved any result. One day I received a letter from my wife, re questing that I should send her some money, as she was out of ju _I . ent to the -ý- - - time banding a sum r pay for it, in which were several half dollars. The I clerk pushed three of them back to me, say- i ing. " counterfeit.' What!' said I, " you don't mean to tell me those half dollars are counterfeit ? ' " I do.' •* Are yen certain ? ' *"Perfectly certain. They are remark ably well executed, but deficient in weight. See for yourself.' And he placed one of them in the bal ance against a genuine half dollar, and the latter brought up the former.. " This is the best counterfeit coin I ever saw in my life,' I exclaimed, examining them closely. "Is all the counterfeit ' money in circulation here of the same char acter as this ' "Oh, dear, no,' the clerk replied, "it is net nearly so well done. These are the work of the famous New York counterfeiter. Ned Willett. I know them wed, for I have handled a great many in my time. Here is some of the money that is circulating here.' he added, taking some half dollars from the drawes. You see that the milling is not so well done as Ned Willett's, altheegh this is pretty Good, too.' I compared the two, and found that be was right. I supplied the pline of the counterfeits with good coin, and returned the former to my pocket. A few days after this I received Informa tion which caused me to make a journey to a small village about thirty miles from Chi cago. I arrived there at night, and took up my quarters at the only tavern in the place. It was a wretched dwelling, and kept by an old man and woman, the surliest eoaple, I think, it was ever my lot to meet. In answer as to whether I could have a lodging there that night, I noticed that the host gave a particular look at his wife, and after some whispering, I was informed, in the mwet un gracous maner posieble, I could have a I have frequently in the coarse of my life been obliged to put up with wretched saeommedetios, so I did net allow my equanimity of temper to be destroyed by the miserable sleeing rtment into which I was ushered afte Iad fnihed my repast. The chambeorwas of smell sins, and cer tainly well vetilated, for I couldM see the starathrough the roof. The bed was simply a bag of straw throwai ose eornr of the room, without sheet or covering of any kind. This last fact, however, was not of much conequence as it was summer and ppessively hot. I stood more than -an bor gsg out of the opening which served for a window. Before me was an Immense prairie, the limits of 'which I ooold not see. The tavern in which I had taken up my sabde appeared to be isolated from all other dwellings; and, save the croak of thrtree.toad sad the hbas of the locust, not a sound reached my ear. It was a beauti ful moonlight night, so bright that I could read the smallest print. At last I began to grow weary, sad throw ing myself on a pallet I was soon as*p. How long I slept I kcw not, bat I has awakened by a dull mead which re sembled some one hammering in the dis tames. I suppose it was the peeuliarity of the sound which awoke me, fee it was not loud, bus conveyed to me the idea of some one strlking iroe with a mded hammer. I rnes from my bed sad went to the window. The moos was now in the western horison, by which fact I knew it must he near morn ing. The sound I have before referred to reached me mora distinctly thamwheu in the back parof the ohamber. It appeared to coe oa some outhouses which were situ ated a hunded yards from the bhoe. Now, I am natn.ally of an Inquiring mind, n this somed oourring as it did in the middle ci the night, piqued my euri.rt , sad I elt irrepresbis desire to g .oS sad dissever the case of it. The desire, asthe sound eomiand, grew apes me with seek intensity that I reolve to gratify it I e my boots, the only article of attire I had discarded, cautiously opened the door of my chamber, and noiselessly de scended the rickety staircase. A few steps brought me into the lower apartment, which I found entirely deserted. I crept quietly to the window, and usfastened it without making the slightest, noise and "was soon in themoonlight. Not a soul was visible; but thesound I have menu tined grew much more distinct as I approached the place from whence it proceeded. At length I found myself before a lone, low building, through tlhe crevices of which I could perceive a lurid glare issuing. I stooped down and peeped through the keyhole, and to my ex treme surprise I saw habl a dozen men, with i their sleeves up and coats off, perfo miu - a variety of occupations Some were w ,rk ing at a forge, others were superintending the casting of moulds, and some were en gaged in milling coin. In a mome, r tlhe whole truth burst u' onp., lier. was th. 4ang ofr inmnerf s in teant~h i;, and the landlord and his wh' e evidently be longeii to the same band, for in one corner I saw them employed-the man polishing off some half doller pieces, and the woman was packing the finished coin into rolls. Ibad seen enough, and was about to re turn to my apartment, when I suddenly felt a heavy hand placed on my shoulder, and turning my head around, to my horror I found myself in the grasp of as ill-looking a scoandrel as ever escaped the gallows. " What are you doing here, my good fel low, he exclaimed ? ' giving me a shake. "Taking a stroll by moonlight.' I replied, endeavoring to retain my composure, "Well, perhaps you will just take a stroll inside, will you ? ' rdtsrned the ruffian. pushing open the door and dragging me in fter him. Ad the inmates of the barn immediately stopped work and rushed toward us when they saw me. "Why. what's all this ? ' they exclaimed "A loafer I found peepin' outside,' said my captor. "H e's a traveler that came to theo tavern Slastnight and asked for a lodging; the last I saw of him he was safe in bed,' said the landlord. The men withdrew to a corner of the apartment, leaving one to keep guard over me. I soon saw they were in earnest con saltation, and were evidently debating some important question. The man keeping guard over me said nothig. but scowled fiercely. I had not said a single word during all the time I had bems in the barn. I was aware that what eyer I might say would in all probability do more harm than good, and it has always been maxim of mine to hold my tongue when in loubt. At last the consultation seemed to be ended, for the blackest of the party came forward, and without any introduction, ex claimed : " I say stranger, look here, you must lie ! ' I did not move a muscle nor utter a word. "You have found out our secret, and dead men iell no tales.' *We will give you ten minutes to say our prayers, and also allow you the privi e of being shot or hung.' bere something m t save aty burst into a violent it of iauhter ; in fr"r' it was hysterical, but they did not know iv they looked at one another in amas meat. 'Well, he takes it rpighty cool, anyhow.' said one. - 'Suppose he don't think we are in earnest,' said another. 'Come stranger, you bod'better say your prayers,' said the man w'. had first spoktn, 'time flies.' My only reply was a lt of laughter more violeat than the first. -That man's mad,' they exclaimed. 'Or drunk,' said somes 'Well, boys,' cried I for the first time, 'this is the best joke I aver saw. What, hang a pal 7' 'A pal-you a pall' 'I ain't nothin' else,' was my elegant re joinder. 'What is your name ?' 'Did you ever bear of Ned Willett? ' I replied. 'You may be certais.ef that. Ain't he the head of our professiewa' 'Well, then I'm Ned.' ;You NedWillett ?' ll exclaimed.

Few there are of the sometime residents of the city of New York who do not re member those days of public and private agony. in October. 1854, when the Collins steamship Arctic was overdue and supposed to be lost at sea. It was a favorite line and vessel, and on board were persone of the highest social standing. Counsquently the t.ame of the Arctic was on every lip. and while the friends of those on board were oppressed with the most terrible apprehen sious. the public mind generally was scarcely less excited. The Collins vessels were so regular that merchants timed the delisesy of the mails almost to an bour, and when day, after day - :.".. "- he the + e y ur 4)'t. Ztr luybtsben ý , ..d iv toood, ,td1 ,tl w be-' came deeper. Strange to relate, one of the most desponding was Mr. E. K. Collins, the manager of the line, and the person afterj whom it was named. The crowds who flocked to the office to question him, and who naturally expected to see him full of hope, found him pale, diestirited, and often in tears. Hiswife and twdchildren were on board, but it was thought that his cogfidence in the staunchness of the vessels, and the seamanship of those in charge of them, would make him treat the matter in a totally dafferent spirit from what he did. Much surprise was expressed, but the actual reason for this great depression was at that time known only to a few of his relatives and most intimate friends. It arose, in truth, from a dream, which left an impression beyond his power to overcome, and which in the end was verified in every particular. A number of the directors and various merchants were assembled in the private office of the company on Monday afternoon. The vessel was then some two days over due, having been expected on the previous Saturday evening. At the time Mr. Collins lived at a magnificent residence in West chester county, and had remained in town over Sunday, to receive his family on the ar rival of the steamer. He spent Saturday at the house of his brother. and on Sunday morning came down to the breakfast table so haggard that it attracted attention. When spoken to about it he frankly stated that he had passed a restless night, broken by a dream that the Arctic was lost. The mat ter was laughed at by the brothel, but when Monday morning came without the vessel haviug been reported, Mr. Collins again spoke of his dream. During Monday be related it to several others, and at the hour of the assemblage in the private office it was told over again-with anf injunction of secrecy, however, which prevented it from reaching the public. As one after another came into the office, they were painfully impressed with the which was pic tured in the face in-. A large man, of erect sta ed dig .ity of manners, he did a person who would give way a fears on aty occasion. Bre quiet than usual a m those in n pretty w lins " said new, !4 by 21F 'eeon and a 10 teel rooms, and no ildren are on bo.eitly shaded w ne, in reply. t Y'rice, "s ; " but there is no occasu.a for a he ship is a staunch one, and ..th i a few hours, at most, wili, I think, come gallantly to her wharf." " Never ! " said a deep, solemn voice. All gave a slight start at the tone and words, and turned in the direction whence they proceeded. The speaker was Mr. Col lins himself. " I am satisfied, gentlemen," he remarked in the same solemn manner. "that the Arctic has gone to the bottom." " Impoesible," cried all. "I am Suite astonished at that opinion," said Mr. James Brown, a prominent director. " No one knows better than you do, Mr. COHils, the superior constrooction of the abips of our line, and the qualifieations of the officers and crew in charge of the Arcti." *" Any vessel may be lost." said Mr. Col tins; "" and while I am satisfed that, as di. reetors and publie servants, we have done aM that human beings oould do in the prem ises, still I believe the Areti to be lost. May a good God have protected those on tbard." Here his voice failed him, and his eyes were sufused with tears. ~lth hise thoughts far out on the broad, dangerous osea, he had seen the faces of his wife and children amoang thosem blpless nes. and for the mn mesat he could say mre. The smen #s affe.ting in the extreme, and perhape never lied its equal in any coentingroom in the world. For some time there was entire asllnce, and thdl Mr. Brown remarked: , Mr. (ollits, yoen mst have some good reason for yeour opinio.." • None in the world," returned Mr. Cal line,. "enoept a dream."

Every man there listened with his ears wide open. and looked full in the face of the usually strong minded man, who spoke these words so seriously sad Impressively. * ILast satsrday niht." oontineed Mr. Cellins, " I dreamed o the Arctio.

I believe it a reality," replied Mr. Col ns, s" nd again I say may Heaven have protected these poor souls on board.. How ever. I beg that neither my dre am nor oon victions may resckhhope bise." Soon after the merenb s weat their sive ral ways. Not one of them coeld shake of the impression made by what had occurred. Meanwhile, the newspapers endeavored to sustain public oonidenee by all kinds of plausible stories. These days later the irat of the survivors reached oar shores, with the harrowing tale of the disaster by col lision to the Artie, aad of the loss of most of those e board. Whea ail the fats be came known, they were ezct in every par ticular with Mr. Collis' dream, and it may properly be regarded as one of the moa striking and remarkable that ever occtrad. Elopement.

Belle Eno is a young lady of prepossess jag appearance, seventeen years of age. and the daugh:er of William Siewart Eno. of PIne Plains, Duchess county. Henry Morgan is about twenty years of ace, and the tnhew of Senuator Morgan. Last fall sum me he hired out to Mr. Eno, the coon trace.:iprlating that he should board and lodge,in the family. It was then that he became acquainted with Miss Belie, and at once tell in love with her. His employer was well satisfied with the manner in which he performed the duties ass:gned him, and in a abshort time increased his wages. not kuowiuý., Mwever, of the lo.. ffair.

In accordance therewith be left the house of his inamorata, but nev rtheless they often Met by chance, The usual way, and finally concluded to elope. On Wed nesday of last week Mr. and Mrs. Eno left Pine Plains on a visit to a friend. The same afternoon Henry Morgan procured the services of somebody to carry liquors to Mr. Eno's house, to give to the hired help. in tending to get them intoxicated and thereby get them out of the way. Whether in this particular point his plan succeeded we are unable to state. However, between two and three o'clock, Thursday gmorning the persevering lover was beneath his darling's window, and gave a signal. The window sash was cautiously and quietly raised and almost immediately a trunk emerged from the window pressed forward by unseen hands. Around it was a rope with which it was lowered to the ground.when it was quick ly seized by Morgan, placed in a sleigh and taken to the depot of the Duchess and Co lumbia railroad. This trunk, according to the statement of a correspondent, bore the name of iiss Belle's aunt. The lovere had previously agreed that they should meet each other at the depot in time to take the early minriing train to Stiasing, then come to Poughkkeepsie via Poughkeepsie and Eastern. She was to get on board of the train from the platform, and he was to go around on the other side out of sight and get on board. It was also agreed that if any thing occurred she was to go to Rhinebeck in some way and then come down (in the Hudson River road to Poughkeepsie, where he would meet her and both go - to College Hill Hotel. Bqt there's Many a slip Twist cup and lip, Both met at the depot at the time agreed upon. Uufor'unately the traiin was behind time.

Love to be ad mired by a man- love to be petted by hintm, and loving to be oaressed by him, loviig to pe praised by him, is not loving a man. All these may be when a woman has no power of loving at all; they may all be. simply because she loves herself, and loves to be flattered, praised, coaxed, as a cat likes to be coaxed and stroked, and fed with cream. and have a warm crtner. But all this is not love. It may exist, to be sure, where there is love-it generally does. Love. dear ladies, is selt saBnCfice; it i± life out of self and in another. Its very essence is the pre(-rriug of the comfirt, the ease. the wishes of another to oneu-'s own. for the love we bear them Living is giv:op and ,ot receiving love is not a sheet of blt iug paper. or a sponge. sucking in everything to itself; it is an outspriiginug fouutaiu, giving trom itself.
