Between broad fleldt of wheal and corn la the lonely home where I was bora; The peach-trees lean against tho nail, And the woodbine wanders .ver all; There la tot ibsdsd doorway still. But a stranger's foot ba s crossed the all), I There Is the barn and, as of yore, ' I Mil smell the bar from the open door, And sue the busy swallows throng, And hear the peewee'a mournful song; But th. stranger cornea oh! palo'ol proof Bis sheaves are piled to Ih. h.aled roof. There la the orchard-th. very trees Where my childhood knew long hours ol ease, And watched the shadowy momenta tua Till my life Imbibed more shade than sun; The awing from th. bough still sweeps the air But the stranger's children ar. swinging there. There bubbles the shady spring below, With Ita bulrush brook where the haiell grow; Twas there I found the calamus root, And watched the minnows poise andisboot, And beard the robin lave his wing), But the stranger' bucket la at the sMlng. Oh, ye who dally cross tho sill, Step lightly, for 1 love it still; And when you crowd the old barn eaves, Then ihlnk what countless harvest sheaves Have paused within that scented door To gladden eyes that are no more. Deal gently with those orchard trees; And hen your children crowd their knees, Their sweetest fruit they shall impart. As If old memories stirred their heart; To youthful sport still leave the awing. j And lu sweet reverence hold the spring. The barn, the trees, the brook, the birds, The meadow, with their lowing herds, ' Tbe woodbine on the cottage wall My heart still liugera with them all, Ye strsngera on my native sill, Step lightly, for I love It still. WIi.V Sishi HoiiHton Abnnilnncd III IMrist U ifo-Asiollier Vci-mIuu of the Htovy. Special Correspondence to Globe-Democrat. Houston, Tex , May 3. A publi cation iu tbo Galveston News of to day, in reply to a rodent interview of a Globe Dnwctat correspondent vith tho aged and venerable Asa Jarmnn touching tho early life and especially the family troubles of Gen. Sam Hous ton tbo father of Texas, occasions much remark. Tho article seems to have been published at tho suggestion of an old gentleman of tho city of Iloustou who lived in Nashville forty years ago, aud at tbe time of tho do mestic difficulties of Houston, then Governor of Tennessee. The gentle man 4iad received a letter from Mr. E S. Morgan, of Tennessee, a relative of the famous Confederate cavalry officer, and who was in Nashville at tho time of the separation. Mr. Morgan, who intimates that Mr. Jarman's statement in the GIoImi-Democrat created co lit tlo excitement and feeling among tho former friends of Miss Kliza Allen, by some called Miss DickernOD, the first wife of Houston, undertook to deny it, and yet, without offering any better solution of au historical secret than that it was heretofore supposed had been by Gen. Houston and his then beauliiul wife curried to their graves. HISTORY SILENT. It will be remembered that upon this subject history is silent. In his lifetime Gen. Houston seldom epoko of it, even to bis most intimate friends, and when he did, he only suffered their inquiries to go to a ccrtaiu poiut and no farther. His first wife after bis abandonment of her, pursued the same ocursj. 1 ho most generally ac cepted explanation of tbo separation in Tennessee, aod among such promi nent friends of Gen. Houston and his beautiful and ill-starred bride as Col. Morgan, Judge Guild and Col. Wil- lougbby Williams, who have taken op the cudgel, is that, as stated by Mr. Jaruian, MJ;s Allen never loved Gen. Houston, but was forced by her fami ly to marry him for the sake of posi tion and rank, and that her heart re ally talented to another a young man who loved aod courted her. So far, Mr. Jarman and tbe lady'a Tennessee friends agree. The story among tbe latter is that in the ncred cod Sac of tbe bridal chaaiber the youcg bride confessed to Geo. Houtoa that the did not and could not love him, and that Houston :htrcv;oa turned opos his heel ao J LErr ii ta forever. Titre is a&thtr theory of Ms. Houston's friends. They say that the illustrious founder of the Republic ol Texas and conqueror of Santa Anna having been raised with the Indians was to all intents anil purposes practi cally tu Indian and infatuated with tho wild roving life of III Indiana That having arisen to tb highest of fice and honors, of th State of Ten nesseo, he longed to again be with the Indians and partake of the untram melod excitements of their wild and adventurous life, to rove on the lone Bomo plains with uioccasined warriors and wander along down by the shady brooks arm in arm with beautiful In dian maidens, for whom he had a great fondness. That in casting about for some excuse to suddenly bury himself in the oblivion of a savage life he bit upon the expedient of abandoning the fair and beautiful woman he had just married, aud refusing any explanation to his friends, knowing that the world would set down the cause as adultery, whatever ho might any to the contrary. 1 JARMAN'S STORY. The story of Mr- Asa Jarman, of Houston, Texas, is, however, generally believed to afford tho most satisfactory explanation of tbe affair. Gen. Hous ton and his fair lady were both mor tals, the one as great as the other was beautiful and accomplished. Mr. Jar man, udou boing interviewed by n Globe-Democrat correspondent to-day, reiterated that the statement mado in his manuscript in reference to this af fair is true, and lie says he was in Nashville at the time. He denies some of the statements recently made by Col. Willoughby Williams in tho Naabvillo lwiericaji in reply to tbo ar ticle in tho Globe-Democrat, and es pecially iu regard to Gen. Houston's attempted duel. He again showed tbe manuscript copy of his sketch of Gen Houston to tho correspondent. It makes a clear, emphatic statemeutthat Gov. Houston suddenly returning home, and having been kept informed of his wife s movements ty a negro servant, found Mrs. Houston and ber former lover together in a bed room, both ooeupying tho same couch. Mr. Jarman, who came to Texas with Gen. Houston, says that Houston told him that his wife's infidelity, as above stated, was the cause of tbe separation, that it MSOL'STED him, and that hence bo was driven to aban don all tor a savage life again. If Col Morgan, Judge Guild and other promi nent gentlemen of Tennessee, who de ny Mr. Jarman's statement, will offer any more rational and plausiblo solu tion of General Houston s abandon ment of a lovely wife and beautiful and desirablo woman, tho world in general, and tho peoplo of Texas in particular, would listen to it with great interest. Mr. Jarman stated to the correspondent that he well remember ed the first wife of the Texas bcro and conqueror ; t he saw her in Nashville. She was a handsome blondo ; of figure finely proportioned but inclined to be petite; features well chiseled and ap proaching the Greek model; lighthair wbo.-o stray ringlet escaped from un der the long scoop bonnets that were the fashion in those days; blue eyes, in whose cerulean depths lingered a sweet and tender expression, just of that kind to captivate a lofty nature like that of the hero of tho field ot. an Jacinto, fche was a'queeuly wo man, aud has lung oince slept tbo sleep that knows no waking. Two years ago she graduated, and her essay was upon tbe"Gloriou Fu ture." '"Let us .trive toemulate tbo examples of the nobility of pi.st gener ations," she .aid, "and let our axpi ratioci direct u toward the accom plishment of exalted deeds, and our reward shall be givea m in tbe tru:, tbe beautiful, the gooi" A lew days ago she was lying on the cofa reading tbe Iat insipid novel ; t-he had oa an old tlrcss, hr hair tu uncombed, acd a hole in tbe beel cf ber atotkior added to ber ricturtque appearance while her BiOthr was out in the. kitchca ij'iLi li 3 week.a vathinr. aod calling ia rain f ot ututaaoc Tbe nob.e g rl- li-iilli Ih n IH.ticloit., ' A lady sives tbo following.; foodl. adviue about dishclotliH) : , -i i If they are black and stiff and imelr liko a buruyard it is enough throw ! them iu tho tiro and henceforth and. forever wash your dishes with cloths, ., that are white, cloths that yon can, see through, and see if you ever have, that disease again. Thore are some, times other causes, but I have smellcdi . a whole house full of typhoid,' fever in, one "disbrag." I had someaflighbora ' I onoe clever, good sort of folks ; oev fall four of them were sick at one time, with typhoid fever. The doctor order-, ed the vinegar barrels to be whitewash ed, and threw about forty cents worth, of carbolic aeid in the swill pail and' department. I went into, the kitchen, and made gruol I needed a dishcloth,, and looked around and found-several,, and such "rags 1"" I burned them all, ; and called the daughter of tbe house to get me a disholotb. She looked) around on tho table. "Why," said she, "there-were about a dozen-here this morning," and'sho looked in the wood-box and on the mantelpiece and cupboard. "Well," I said, "I saw seme old black rotten rajs lying around: and I burned them for there is death, in such dishcloths as those, and yout must never use such again." I took, turns at nursing that family for weeks and I believe thoso dirty dishcloths were the aause of all that bard1 work. Therefore lsay to every housekeeper keep your dishcloths clean. ' You may only brush and comb your head ou- ' Sundays, you need not wear a collar uuless you go from home; but youi must wash your dishcloths. Vou may ' only sweep tho floor when the sun pets-.' right; tho windows don't noed wash ing, you can look out of the door, that spiders web on the front poroh don't hurt anything but ns you love' I your lives wash out your dishcloth. Let the foxtail grass grow in tho gar-- den (tho seed is n foot deep anyway,)' let the holes iu tho heels of your bus bond's foot rags go undarned, Jet thu. children's shoes go two Sundays ith-. Out blacking, let tbo sago go uugather ed, let tho huus set four vauka on one wooden egg but do wash out your dish cloths. Eat without a table cloth, wash your faces find let thoui dry, do without a curtain to your- windows,, and caice for tea but for. heaven's. sake keep your dishcloths cleau. Tli'j H ire. It is astonishing to. see how well tv man may livo on a small income who, bus u handy and industrious wife. ' Souie men livo aud muke a far batter appearance on six or eight dollars a week than others do on fifteen or eighteen dollars. Tllo man does his part well, but tho wife is good for- untiling. She will even upbraid her husband for not living.in as good style as her neighbor, while tbo fault is en-. tirtly her own. His neighbor has-a neat, capable and industrious wife,. and that makes tbo difference. So. look out, young man. before you go in-, to matrimony. 1.1 is a lottery and. most men can only buy one ticket, and- f that turn out a Miik, your whole, life had better be a blank, ton. Lucki ly, no one uecJ go into wedded state. with eyes closed, as is tltu eise with. lis lotteries, and we ju-k-e all who are sensible enough will ui-e tLeir optica and draw prize.
