It is strange, that in this moonlight, tender thoughts shuuM como of you. Arc hie Grey, tjjat IJung me from you, as th e night breeze flings the dew. Could you marvel there should linger, something of the olden bliss, Of two iu .eruiiogled natures, in a glorious night like this I Archie Grey, you were my lover, and I trusted you in all, But some danger lurks in loviug, as decay in 1 aves that fall V\ e ere lovers—that expresses all the happies heart could say, Bet some proul w .rl built a barrier iigk between us, Archie Grey ! So wo parted, each reluotant, and with slowly-lin gering feet, Wondering r, upon the morrow's mystic twilight we should meet 1 we ported in a moonlight, streaming grandly down like this, Lovers still, yet all too haughty for a single good night kiss; Never stole your arm around me, a* in farewells oft before, Aa 1 your proTcei tapl was polder, than the stem wave on the shore, How I peered, with wistful questioning, in the aark light of your eye, But ttv life grew very weary, for I misled the sofr reply. Then 1 formed bravo resolutions, that in day-hours, I may keep, But a eomjthing in this moonlight softens down the heart to weep. Call it weakness, call it w iman's lack of spirit if you will! Better to, than eyes too frozen for the warmth of tears to £ll. Wait 1 a memory steals across me ; 'twas a vesper he r in June, When, athrough the opea ciweccect, toyeti the fin gers . f the moon, VTitn the frtgrant fcair of summer, ruflied by tbe ergnton Creese, As ii lightly came coquetting, from the hoc?y-blos soming trees. Tb it your ftoe grew tou bed with sadness, holier th.'n the passion'*- play, And upon your struggling lushes, lay a tear-drop. Archie grey 1 If 'twera wmkness, angel gazers, from yon blu,]and silent sphere, Might be won by human frailty, glittering in a crys tal teay-. Ah in'*, Archij, I hare wanderel where I never meant to go, But this moonrise o'er my spirit, else teo darkened moves me so. I nature, and the slight it could not brook I torget y our pride of manner, and that half vexed parting look ; All my maidenly resentment ia this sweet hour dies away, And I only know I love you—love you madly, Ar chie Grey.

Soon I dreamed that peaceful angeli Hovered o'er the battle plain. Singing eongs of joy an ! gladness, Aod my boy was home again. CnoßUs—ll <w well I know such thoughts of joy— Such dreams of bliss are r-.in, My heart is sad ; my tears will flaw— Until my boy U home again. Tears were changed to loud rejoicing's, Night was turned to endless day ! Lovely oirds were sweetly singing, Flowers bloomed in bright array, Old and young seemed light and cbeorful— Peace seemed every where to reign My poor heart forgot its sorrow, For my.bey was home again.

TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, J863. Select Storn. THE HKIFtKSS QF QLEN- NjORJtl. BT MRS. C. P. CERRY. In a picture gallery of a grand old castle iu England, hangs a portrait, which I am about to describe. It was painted by Cop lev, and represents a girl in tbe first flush of her youth and loveliness. Iler beauty is of the blonde type ; she has the sunniest of blue eyes, the sunuiest of golden tresses rippling down from the brim of her jaunty hat, the sunnieot of smile#, hovering about lips as red and dewy as the rosebuds clasped it; one hand. The figure is etherial in its grace, #nd robed in white inuslin ; the bare arms are faultless in their proporiions, and the foot peeping from the folds of her dress, as dainty as ever pressed the green sward, broad blue ribo ms are lied about her waist, loop up her sleeves, and fl >at fro.u the crown of her hat, and a few tfjwers are wreathed amid her hair. Such)? the report of Alice, the heiresa of Gler.more, in her sixteenth year; thus look ed she, as she traversed the fluids of her princely estate one glorious summer after noon. On, on she kept, till 6he reached a rustic bridge, whicu ha I b<-*en built across & ore >!t, that went d tucing through a ravine on the verge of the uplan 1 pastures. Here she paused, and peering through the shrub bery, gazed at a path tuat had been worn by tbe feet of sheep, which the shepherds were in the habit of driving tp the to drink. At length she drew back wi b a cl >u 1 on bar fair brow, and began to pick the blossoms fr in a vine, which had wound itself round and round the railing on which she leaned. I— I have stolen away froiu the castle and hastened hither, but 'tis all in vain— Robert will not water his flock this after noon." She had scarcely spoken, when she heard a rich, clear voice singing a snatch of some old song, and the next moment a flock of sheep catne hastening along the path, follow ed by a young shepherd. He was only eighteen, but he had already attained the height of tuanJiood, and L's face was a most noble one—the forehead broad and high, the eyes, l&rge, dark and £reamy, f-nu the mouth very spirited. " L will hide," said Alice, to herself; "so I tnaj* see whether he cares for me or not," and she nestled down among a clump of ha zel bushes and watched and listened. There could not have been a prettier picture than the ravine, with winding through it, bordered by reeds and flowers that love the water, and spanned by the rustic br.dge, with its drapery of moss and vines, and the sheep quietly drinking, and beside them, in thoughtful tnood, stood the young herdsman, with his picturesque costume and gallant be;u\ig. die sank upon the grass, but though he had assumed a posture of indolent grace, he ever and anon started and anxiously at the castle, whose turrets loom eil above the distant foliage. At length he -prang to his feet, and began to pace 4o and iro " I might have known it," he muttered, " I might have known that Alice, the high born lady. S'>uld even be a friend to a poor shepherd lad. I shall not meet her to day;? 1 " Yes you will!" rejoined the raischiev ous girl, and couiipg from her place of con cealment, she stood before him in all her beauty, with flushed cheeks and drooping eyes. "0, Alice, how glad I am that you have cotneonce more ! This is the last time we shall meet for years, if we ever do again !" The girl s rich color faded, and her eyes were moist with tears as she raised them to ilia. "It cannot be," she faltered, "it cannot he you are .going away 3" '*Yes, I am." u And where ?" " I will tell you. I was not born for the humdrum life of a shepherd. I have tastes beyond tending my flock." " I know it ; you draw beautifully, and have never had a lesson." " A'ice, [ atn going to Italy, When I 6ee you igaia, with Gvd's blessing, I shall be an artist." " But who will help you ?" " Last night an uncle of mine, who run away from home when he was a little boy, came back to Glenin re." •' Go on." Well, he is an artist ; he says he is not rich, but he can afford to care for and teach me, till I ain able to take care of myself.— My parents frown upon what they call high flown notions, but they say I may go if 1 set upon it." "It will ho hard to leave your home, your brothers and sisters." " But harder still to leave you, Alice; you are dearer to me than anything else in the world, but I know 'lis folly to love one so far above me. You will forget the shepherd lad—l shall hear of you as a nobleman's wife I" * u No, no, yoa won't!" exclaimed Alice, her tears gushing forth afresh \ " I shall not love anybody but you!" " Me—-me— Robert, the herdsmen's boy i Do you love me, Alice?" " Yes, with all my heart !" " Then if you will keep yourself fre# till I have won fame and fortune, I will come and claim you. And r.ow I hive one favor to ask." " What is it ?" " Stand here just as you are, and let me sketch you in a I have made of Rocky Rrook." The girl remained, and he proeeeded to sketch her, who was the " day star" of his dreams. When he had finished it, he brought it for her inspection. She gazed at it with tearful eyes, and then iritl? tnany a fond word they parted. Tho light of the Italian sunset liy warm and ri:h oil hill aud vale and stream, and lingered lovingly in a studio, occupied by twj men. One uf these had passed the prime of h's manhood—the other had carc*lv reached it; his hair was brushed back m careless waves froiu his broad brow ; bis eyes were full of light, and a smile came and went about his well cut hps, as he etood be fore his easel. On it lay a painting, to which he had just given the finishing touches—a landscape, representing a gorge, threaded by a clear stream and a fiock of sheep drinking, and a young girl, with a white muslin robe and a coquettish hfU. " Robert," said the yonng artist's uncle, " I C£ii teach you nothing more." But the dreamer did not hear his words he was lost in a profound reyerie. At length a chariot, with tbe arms of a noble Euglish family einblazzoned on the pannels, rolled to the door, and a man with a patrican air alighted and entered the studio. lie paused passed from picture to picture, till he came to the landscape I have described. Then he stopped, and afier gazing at it in silent won der, said: " That is English scenery, I believe." " Yes sir." " And that lady is the heiress of Gleu rnore ?" " Jt if." "And may I ask the name of the artist who lias immortalized Lady Alice's beauty ?" The painter drew forth a card, on which was traced the name of Robert Thornton, the qiiandam shepherd boy. As the stranger read it, he resumed : " You are, then, of English extraction?" " Yes, sir ; iu my youth 1 waa a chepherd at Glen more." " Why you astonish me ! I must tell Al ice, and bring her to see yon." "I should be hippy to meet her," was the low reply, and the next moment the stran ger took his leave. Moroni ag came, and at an early hour young Thornton went out for a walk on the Cam pania. He had gone but a Bhort distance, when he met one of the most beautiful of the Tuscan maidens. She called gaily to him as he was passing, and he was cTatting with her, when an equestrian pirty was seen approach ing. Atnoug them rodt. Lady Alice, and Thornton's heart beat fast as she bowed and gafioped by with the, atranger who had enter ed his studio the day previous, riding at her bridal-rein. Weeks passed, and they met—Lady Alice and Thornton—now the famous artist but they met in coldness and distrust. She was always accompanied by the dashing nobleman, to whom rumor said she was affianced ; and Thornton tho't she had grown strangly proud and distant, while she in secret wept over the change which she thought time had wrought in him. But at last the malaria prevailing ;p the city attacked the despodent artist, asd as he lay tossing on his couch, Lid/ Alice came to minister to hjjf wanis, like an angel of mercy. Then, there in that lone chamber, all was explained, all forgiven, solemn be trohal vows were interchanged, and when Robert Thornton grew convalescent, he led to the altar tho beautiful Heiress of Glen more. IJfisallawous. THE CRIME OF SILENCE!—" The man who stands by and says nothing when the peril of his government is discussed, cannot be misunderstood."— Lincoln's last. " Was anything so extraordinary ever be fore uttered by the chief magistrate of a free country ? Men are torn from their homes and immured in bastiles for the shocking crime of— SILENCE ! Citizens of the model Republic of the yrorld sjre not only punished for speaking their opinions, but are plunged into dungeons for holding their tongues.— When before, in the annals of tyranny, was silence ever punished as a crime ? Citizens who disapprove of the acts of the adminis tration are denied even the refuge of a digui lied silence. JG33T I much more desire the extermina tion of slavery, if it can be constitutionally effected—as J beliva it can—than Ido to 6ee the Union restored. I wish to sco sla very at an end when this war should end, if it can be constitutionally accomplished.— Senator Fessenden. And if it cannot be constitutionally done we suppose, like all tue rest of his party, die wants to see it done anyhow. YALANDIGHAM ESCAPES. TJis York Herald says, " that Yal laudigham has run the blockade from Wil mington, N. C., to Nassau, whence it is stat ed he will proceed to Canada. When he ar rives in the British provinces ho will no doubt take up his abode in Chatham, oppo site Detroit, where a Ferry connects the two cities. From Detroit to Dayton, Ohio, there is railroad communication, and the distance is short. If he does not think it prudent to return just now be can easily keep up com munication with the State, and issue telling addresses, which will be published in the newspapers. If he should return we think it very questionable if he would be further interfered with by Burnside. Certain it is that if he should be elected Governor of Ohio as it is highly probable he will be, he will boldly cross the frontier at once ; and to meddle with him after that would be out of the question. It has been suggested that Vallandigham will cross the Canadian frontier into the State of New York, and remain there under the protection of Governor Seymour, until his State calls htm to administer its govern ment ; and there can be no doubt that he would feel more at home in the Empire City than he would in a little Canadian village; and we feell asjured that Governor Seymour would not permit him to be contra ry to law. Bu ,as t..s Democratic candi date for tk Governorship of Ohio could ren der more aid toward his own election by posting hitns.-If on the frontier of the State than by remaining in New York, he will probably be found at Chatham, Niagara Falls, or somewhere on the Northern shore of Lake Erie, till next October, where he will do infinitely more damage to the admin istration and its candidates than if he we re permitted to return unmolested to his home in Ohio. So much for the vain attempt to violate with impunity the prohibition of the constitution agaiust the abridging of tho lib erty of speech." HON.GEOBGE W. WOQDWARD. Hon. George W. Woodward, our nominee for Governor, is a native of Wayne county. The Luzerne Union says he came to Wilkea- Barre when quite a young man, to attend ihe school of Dr. Orton, the then principal of the old Academy, under whose tuition he completed his academic education. He then went to Geneva, N, Y., where he graduated in the earn® cia**;tfUh Gov. Seymour, and be tween whom we understand there has ever existed tho firmest friendship. About the year 1828 George W. Woodward entered upon the etudy of law in the office of Garrick Mallery, Esq. Upon the appointment of the latter gentleman to the Judgeship of the Northampton district, young Woodward took charge of Mr. Mallery's extensive prac tice, and in a very short time attained a high position at the bar. Hi 9 clear legal and logi cal, tuind his untiring industry, and the un swerving iutegrity of his character, made him a mark of admiration far beyond his years, among the gcotls, the Conyngams, the LcClir locks, the Denisont and the other great dtstingtished minds then composing the Luzerne bar. Thus much for his early rr.an hond in the profession of which he has sir:® become so bright an ornament. Tfis subse quent attainments are too well known to need further reference. From the unaided boy he has become a lawyer and a jurist un surpassed in the Stato; while his learning, his ability, his unspotted life, and last, though not least, his orthodox Democracy, all point ed to him as the proper man in the present crisis to direct the destinies of this geeat Commonwealth. The abolitionists say the? are op posed to peace on any terms, "if you are so fierce for war, why don't you take your gun and go to war ?" II you prefer war to peace go in— shoulder your gun, and take a posi tion in the front ranks. Your services are wanted. Exsmple is better than precept on this subject. Practice what you preach, and not urge and force ethers to do what you won't do yourselves. You like war, go in and enjoy it! JC3T If it takes an oath to make an abo litionist loyal to the government, how many oaths would it take to bring his patriotism up to a volunteering and fighting pitch 1 need no oaths, they have al ways beep loyal, but the men now joining the Union league should take such an oath three times a year. They have always been disloyal. rar The abolitionists are very anxious that the peoplo should sustain the Adminis tration, right or wrong. Let the President sustain the right and the people will sustain him but they will not sustain the wrong They will oppose that and him with] it so long as be sustains it.

The undersigned in behalf of the Board of Visitors of the Wyoming Conference Semi* nary for the present year, would report as follows; We feel ourselves happy in having been appointed on this Board, both on ac count of the interest we feel in this lastitu tion and in the many things we have observ ed in its present condition. It is true that the Wyoming Seminary, in common with all other institutions of high grade, has shared in the blighting influence of the times ; from this cause many young men of the country who would have b-en or would now be in its classic halls, are marshalled in the tented field. It is true also that the recent intro duction of graded schools into our cities and larger towns, has temporarily caused a dim inution of its members. it escaped our attention that the premises need repairs aud the finances require careful attention. But war times wo trust will not be protract ed, and if they should be, we need knowl | edge quite as much in War as in Peace; the graded schools while they are a great improv ment upon the system of education in their several localities will not ultimitely impede the prosperity of our ILgher Institutions of learning ; but by cultivating a more general interest in education, will multiply their number and send to them a grade of students more advanced in years and proficiency.— And as to the finances, wc are happy to state tho the Trustees are fully awake to this question, are c ompleting a subscription for repairs in the sum of two thousand dol lars, and are ab-.ut to take decisive measures to liquidate the ecti/e indebtedness of the concern. We understaud the rooms are to be put in excellent order throughout and made ae attractive as any that can be found in the very best Institutions. It gives the committee special satisfaction to state the fact of the return of Dr. Nelson to the chief management of the Institution, he has again become Principle in place of G. C. Smith re signed. Prof. Smith has done well for the interests of education here. £he Trustees and the public are under great obligations to Lira for bis untiring and devoted labors for many years. But'believing the proper time has come, he now carries into execution a purpose long entertained of devoting himself fully to the Ministerial work. The great success Dr. Nelson has already achived, both aa an educator and a financeer will Inspire the greatest confidence in the public mind, with regard to the futyye of the Seminary. His return will be universally felt as a pledge tbac its wfll soon be thronged with scholars, and' its finance* placed ultimately on a >afe and permanent basis ; but these most desirable ends cannot be compassed by one man alone; the frienda of the Institution must co-cperate with him. and it will be necessary for him to put forth a manly and determined effort. Nothing less than this will meet the exigency of the caso. Every minister in the Conference is loudly called upon by the circumstances to solicit scholars.' And all our people should be ready fo contribute liberally for the im provement of its finances. The academic year of this Institution has just closed. The examination of classes commenced on Friday the 19ih inst. and was concluded on Monday the 22nd inst. The pupils gave evidence of a thorough knowl edge of their studies. If we were to specify classes we would do injustice unless we mentioned nearly all in each department There are classes in Latin, Greek, French, German, Geology, Botany, Mental and Moral Philosophy, Natural Pnilosophy, Algebra, Geomotry, Surveying Trigonometry, Arith metic and Grammar. Prominent among the departments was that of Instrumental Music, over which s very competent teacher has charge. Of the department in fine arts, Drawing and Painting we would spetk in highly commendatory terms. Both of these departments are in a very fl ninshing condi tion. The number of pupils 111 the Music#l department is unusually large, and their per formances at the examination excited gener al admiration, the paintjpg also exhibited great arti-tic skill and taste. Ample arrangements are being made for es tablishing a COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT in connection with the Seminary, which will be under the supervision of a highly competent Professor, with all necessary assistants.— The design of the Trustees is to furuish here advantages for obtaining a thorough commer cial education, equal to that of the best com mercial colleges in the country, a model bank store etc. will be put in operation, combin ing the actual business department wild the theoretical. A permanent Normal depart ment will be organized, commencing with the next session, which will afford those de siring to teach, an excellent opportunity to prepare for their vocation. The Faculty had make ample arrangements for the usual Anniversary Exercises; But the public excitement on accouul of the Bebei raid in Pennsylvania, together with the unroofing of ope of the academic build ings, by a tornado on the 17th inst., to de ranged matters that the regular exhibition. 00 Tuesday the 23rd iuat. eras dispensed, with. The public lost by this artangemenk the pleasure they had ' u tl c ipated from the address of Caleb W r ght On Friday and Monday evening, however, we were fa vored with or' gi nt j p- ieceß , n composition and declamation, wh'.ch evidenced thought and u\ their production.
