"Are You a Mason 1 I am one of a band who will faithfully stand In the bonds of affection and love ; I have knocked at a door once, wretched and poor, And there for admission I stood. By the help of a friend, who assistance did lend, I succeeded an entrance to gain ; Was received in the West by command from the East, But not without feeling some pain. Here my conscience was taught by a moral quite fraught With sentiments holy and true ; Then onward I traveled to have it unraveled What Hiram intended to do. Very soon to the East I made known my request, And "light" by command did attend ; , When, lo ! I perceived, in due form revealed, A Master, and Brother, and Friend. Thus far I have stated, and simply related What happened, when I was made free. But I've "passed" since then, and was "raised up'' again To a sublime and ancient degree, TLence onward I marched, that I might be "Arched." And find out thoso treasures long lost ; When, behold, a bright flame, from the midst of which came A voice, which my ears did accost. Through the "vails." I then went, and suc ceeded at length The "Sanctum Sanctorum" to find ; By the "Signet" I gained, and quickly ob tained Employment which suited my mind. In the depths I then wrought, and most carefully sought . For treasures so long hidden thero; And by labor and toil I discovered rich gpoi Which is kept by the Craft with due care. Having thus far arrived, I further contrived Among valiant KnighU to appear ; And as pilgrim and Knight, I stood ready to fi-Lt. Nor Saracen foe did I fear. For the widow distressed there's a chord in my breast ; For the helpless and orphan I feel ; And my sword I could draw to maintain the pure law Which the duy of Masons reveal. Thus have I revealed (yet fully concealed) What the "free and accepted" well know j I am one of a band who will faithfully stand As a brother wherever I go. A IV ILL.IX01S WCDDIXG. BV THE MINIaTEK S VIFE. One day in early winter my husband received a summons to Burke's settlement, to unite a couple in the bonds of wedlock. It was especially requested that h"i3 wife fchould accompany him, as we should be expected to remain over night and partake of the festivities. It was twenty miles to the settlement, and we reached the log house of Mr. Burke, the father of the expectant bride, about noon. A dozen tow-haired chil dren were at the door, waiting our arrival. They telegraphed the news instantly. "Marm! marru! here's the Elder and his woman ! They're nothing but folks. She's got a man's hat on, and a turkey wing in front of it ; his boss is just like dad's crooked as a cow-horn squash." ' Sam !" called a shrill female voice from the interior of the cabin, "run out and grab the rooster, and I'll clap him into the pot ! Sal, you quit that churn, and sweep the floor. Kick that corn dodger under the bed ! Bill, you wipe that tallow out that cheer, for the minis ter's wife, and be spry about it." Further remarks were cut ehort Dy our entrance. Mrs. Burke, in calico short gown, blue petticoat, and bare feet, came forward wiping her face with her apron. " IIovv do you do, Elder how d'ye do, marm! - Must excuse my head hain't had no chance to comb it since last week. Set right to the fire, marm. Hands cold? Well, just run 'em in Bill's hair wo keep it long a purpose." ' Bill presented his shaggy head, but I declined, with an involuntary shudder. Sal returned to her churn, but the ex traordinary visitor must have made her careless, for she upset the concern, and butter and buttermilk went over the floor. swimming f'Grab the ladle, Bill," cried Mrs. Burke, f and help dip i up. Take keer ; don't put the enarl of hair in. Strange how folka will be bo nasty. Dick, do keep your feet out of tho buttermilk it won't be lit for thepigB when the butter's gathered. Drive that hen out, quick. She's picked out a pound of butter already. There, Sl,-do try and churn a little more keerfull. If you are agwine to be spliced ter-morr&jyott needn't fun crazy about it." I advise you to dry up !" remarked the brid elect, thumping away at tho churn. . Night came on early, and after a social chat about the event of the morrow, I signified my desire to retire. Sal lighted a pitch knot, . and began climbing a ladder in one corner of the room. I hesitated. "Como on," cried she. "Don't be afraid. Sam, and Bill, and Dick, and all the rest of ye, duck your heads while the Elder's wife goes up. Look out for the loose board?, marm, and mind or you'll smash your brain3 out against that beam. Take keer of the holo where the chimney comes through." Her warning came too late. I caught my foot in the end of a board, stumbled, and fell headlong through what appeared to be an interminable space, but it was only to the room I had just left, where I was saved from destruction by Bill, who caugh me in his arms, and set me on my feet, remarking, coolly : " What made you come that way 1 W"e generally use the ladder." I was duly commiserated, and at last got to bed. The less said about that night the better. The marriage was to take place before breakfast, and Sally was already clad in her bridal robes when I descended the ladder. She was magnificent in green calico over a crinoline full four inches larger than the rest of her npparel, a white apron with red string?, blue stocking?, a yellow neck ribb:i and white cotton gloves. When it was announced that Lom. Lord, the groom, was coming, Sally dived behind a coverlet, which had been hung across one corner of the room to conceal sundry pots and kettle.-, and refused to come forth. Mr. Lord lifted one corner of the curtain and peeped in, but quietly retreated with a stew-pan and a few sharp words from ."Sally, advising him to mind his own btisine&j. Very soon the company began to gather, and the room was well filled. "Now, Elder," cried the bridegroom, "drive ahead ! I want it done up nice. I'm able to pay for the job. Do yc hear? Come father Burke, trot out your gal." But Sally refused to be trotted. She would be married where was, or not at all. We argued and coaxed, but she was firm ; and it was finally concluded to let her have her own way. . Mr. Morrison stood the happy couple joined bands through a rent in the coverlet, arid the ceremony proceeded. Just a3 Mr. Morrison was asking Lemuel "wilt thou have this, woman," fcc., down came the coverlet, enveloping bride, groom and pas tor, and filling the house with dust. Dick had been up in the loft, and cut the strings that held it. Mr. Morrison crawled out, looking decidedly sheepish, and Sallie was obliged to be married openly. To' the momentous question, Lemuel responded, "To be sure what else did I come here for !" and Sally replied "Yaas, if J-ou must know." "Salute your bride," said Mr. Morrison, when all was over. "I'm redy to do anything, Elder, "said Lemuel, "but skin mc if I know about that air. Just show me how, and I'll do it if it kills me." My husband drew back nervously, but Saly advance, threw her arms about his neck, and gave him a kiss'that made the very windows clatter. "I vum if I don't do ditto !" cried Lem uel, and hastily taken a huge bite from a piece of maple sugar, which ho drew from his pocket, he made a dash at me, smashed my collar, broken my watch-gard into a dozen pieces, tore my hair down, and succeeded in planting a kiss on my nose, greatly to the delight of the com pany. Then ho turned to my husband : "Now, Elder, what's the damage? Don't be afraid to speak." Whaiever you please," said Mr. Mor rison. Lemuel produced a piece of fur from his pocket. "There, Elder." eaid he, "there's a musk-rat skin; and out in the shed is two heads of cabbage, and you're welcome to the hull of it." My husband bowed his thanks, the young people went to dancing. Mrs. Burke went to getting breakfast, and at my earnest request, Mr. Morrisou got our horse, and we bade them adieu. g- Be honest and you will prosper. Coining to tlie Point. During a recent divorce trial in one of our city courts, an eminent lawyer (Mr. Bray, by name,) catechised an opposing witness1, a good-looking woman, pretty severely. " At length the lawyer arrived at hi3 reserve-questions, "which were to lead to the grand coup, and bring his case to a brilliant culmination.r- " You Eaid your name was Smart, I believe V quetied Mr. Bray, blandly. " I did, Mr. Bray ; Seraphina Smart, if you plcase," replied the young woman. " Now, Seraphiua, were you not mar ried to A. Man Able Man in March, of last year ?'' "Married to A Man, Alio Man, in March, of last year, did you say, Mr Bray ?" "Y'e?, niadume; I said married to A. Man, in March, of last year?" Putting on a thoughtful air, Seraphina answered, " No, Mr. Bray: I was not manied to A. Man in March of any year." "Singular," said the lawyer. "But about your child, madame, was it not born in January, of this year " "No, Mr. Bray," said Seraphina, in a reflectivo tone, "it wa3 not born in Jan uary." " Well, madame, were you not married to A. Man in April V 3 "In Apiil, did you say, Mr. Bray?" " I eaid in April," was the sharp re-tpons-?. Relapsing into a reflectivo mood again, fh-j responded, "No, Mr. L'ray: I wa3 not married to A. Man in ApriL" . Very strange very strange, indeed ; a mistake somewhere," growled Mr. Bray, looking over his notes and glancing angri ly at the .nirt witness. lie continued, " I presume you will admit that you mar ried A. Man, Able Man, in May of last year, and llnvt your, child, was born iu February of this year, madame ?" " Married A. Man Able Man in May ? My child born in Februaray fol lowing, Mr. Bray ?"' " Yes, Madam ; A. Man in May a child in February " spitefully. A thoughtful interval on the part of Seraphina Smart, and then, " I did not marry A. Man in May, nor was my child born in the following Febru ary, Mr. Bray." " You did not ? It was not? Do you mean what you say, madame?" "Just what I said, and exactly what I mean, Mr. Bray." " 11a, hi'in, we 'shall see," muttered Mr. Bray, and then burst forth again: "Was your child born in the following Marcj, then?" "Born in March, Mr. Bray " " Ye?, in March ! March ! March !" bellowed Bray, with a furious thump of the fist at each repetition. Seraphina cast down her eyes meditatively and then very leisuraly, in an abstracced sort of manner, answered, "No, Mr. Bray, it did not March, March, March into the world at that time." " You seem to forget, madame Smart, that you are upon your Bible oath," re torted Bray, irritated beyond endurance by the negative nature of her responses. " No, Mr. Bray, I do not forget my oath, although you seem to be trying very hard to make me think that it is of no account." " You are like a parrot, Smart." " And you like a dunkey, Bray." "Oh," rejoined the lawyer, sarcastical ly, " indeed !" He tried again : " One more question, Seraphina Smart. Since you were not married to A. Man Abel Man, in-March, nor in April, nor in May, will be kind enough to tell me when you did marry A. Man ?" "When I did marry A. Man, Abel Man, Mr. Bray 1" "Yes, madame, when you dd, ma dame !'' thundered the indignant Bray, "and will you please also to inform the court, the counsel and tli jury when your child was bora V " Well, TJr. Bray," replied Seraphina, smoothing "down the folds of her poplia skirt, while u merry gleam flashed from her blue eyes and illuminated her hitherto thoughtful countenance, " my answers shall be a.3 plain as your questions are direct. It aliord3 me much pleasure to say that my cmUI is not yet born, and which is perhaps less pleasant that I was never married to A. Man, Able Man, or any other man." . The court took a recess without delay. A Tennessee Hadical killed his dog for barking at "old Brownlow." The dog would have died anyhow. 63" What did Lot do when his wife lurncu iu tan. s vjui a iitiu vii VOL. .13 NO, 40 An Old I.ady Killed hy Xegroes. Day after day we are called upon to make additions to the catalogue of crime. and each new instance increases in horror, as though it was not sufficient to commit a deed of murder," but ferocity compels the mutilation of the body of the victim. The last and saddest case that has come to our knowledge is an atrocious murder committed- near, the town of Bowline Green, in which a poor old-woman, named Still was the victim, and three negro men "wera the perpetrators. The following are the circumstances, as related to us by the parties who came up on last night's train : On Saturday last the poor woman had occasion to visit the office of a lawyer in Bowling Green, and while there she men tioned to the lawyer that she had out at her house, which was about a mile from town, near the race course. There were present in the office when she made this revelation three negro men, one of whom was named Lewis the names of the other two having been forgotten, by our informant.' On Monday morning, rs soon as break fast was concluded, Mrs. Still's son, a lad of twelve or fourteen years, wont out to his work. It was a particularly gloouiy and cool day, with almost a continuous fall cf drizzling rain. Sciuctiir in the forenoon tho lad frund it to l-j ej coH that he was compelled 3 return to the houo for his ehoes. On cntoriti, a mo?t horrid sight presented itsvif. The body of his poor mother lay upon the lWr, Ler Lead split open with an axe, ai l sacral wounds upon her body, where the axe ha I Wen diiven in, as though the monstrous pcq-etrators of the hellish deed were du tcraiined to make sure and certain work. The poor lal raised the alarm, and ou searching for Lcr little treasure it was dis covered to be goue. The neighbors then examined the soft ground about the houi, and discovered tricks leading to iA from the building-, cue of which showed that one cf the party wore a shoe run down at the side, with three large nail in the heel and a break about the center of the sole. Assocn a3 the news of the appalling tragedy was con veyed to town, the lawyer rtmcmdereJ that she Lad spoken e.f her money to Lini on Saturday, r.:id also that the man Lewis and two ether negroes were present at the time. On the above information the three par ties were arrested, and on one of Lewis feet was discovered the shoe that made the peculiar tracks spoken of above. On applying it to tho track the peculiar marks fitted each other exactly. This seemed to identify him as one of the mur derers. All three were lodged in jail, charged with participation in the horrible crime. The victim was a very exemplary, industrious woman ; had given the fiends no cause of offense ; and was evidently murdered for the little money she pos sessed. Ax Eccentric clerirvman ol Ports mouth, while on a pedestrian tour through the White Mountains, arrived at one of the fashionable hotels one day in a very travel-stained condition, and was told there was no room for him. Unsuspi cious, he trudged on, and presently en countered a farmer at work in a field, who, when he asked for a lodging, eyed him sharply, and offered him twelve dol lars a month to work for him during 'hay ing time.' " Why, my friend," said the astonished elivine, drawing himself up, " I make more than that every Sunday." The farpier gazed at him a moment in speechless horror, and then burst forth, advancing, with uplifted pitchfork, upon the alarmed clergyman, "Git out o' my field, you Godforsaken critter 1 I don't want any heathens about me, that work on Sunday." The reverend doctor beat aLasty retreat to the hotel, and recovered his presence of mind sufficiently to mako Limsclf known, and secure a room. A Fitr.ncif journal tells a little story about a lady : "When I wa3 first married I was on my knees before my hus band from morning till night. It was a perfect adoration and incessant delirium an inexpressible bliss. I showered caress es upon him , I could have eaten him." "And now," asked a friend. "I'm 'sorry I didn't." !Mo XTESQU IE L" was eliceucsing a question with a counsellor of the Parlia ment of Bordeaux, who was witty lut rather hotdicaded. The latter concluding some fiery remark?, said : "Mr. President, if this is not as I tell you, I will give you my head." "I accept it," replied Mont escpuieu, coolly. "Small presents kerp up friendship." "V II
