Twasa ploasHtitralui June evening
On tlio bauka of Touiiphkoo,
At.d the farewell rnya of unmet,
Tingod each lofty forest trooj
The hoavy ahadows fu'leu low,
In their sombre beauty lay,
As if ntonruing the dupat turo
Of the tranquil eiiinmor'a day t
Then was liK't upon the hilltops,
There was ditrkumui in the vain,
Save where the sky reflecting stream
Wound onward through the dale,
Whu I met wounded soldier,
Ohl a woary man was he!
Returning home to die upon
' The banks of Tennessee.
'We numbered. " said the warr i 1 1
With a melancholy pride,
Whilo he told his simple story,'
As I journeyed at his side,
"When our regiment departed,
For the fovmiin's distant laud,
Nine hundred gallant spirits,
A pick'd aud chosen baud,
Every arm was nerved to daring,
Aud each heart athirst for fame.
Hoped on his country's battle grounds,
To win a glorious namo j
Au bouor cheaply bought v ith blood,
Aro tho praises of the free,
The bold, tho sturdy plnulors,
On the banks of TuuneHsos.
''We hnd never thought of rapine,
As we wnutod not their gold,
For our fluids were wide and fertile
Aud our flocks were in tho fold;
Bat our country called for soldiers,
They told us she was wrong'd,
So we threw aside the ploughshare
And around her stuudurd tlirong'd,
. With willing hearts aud cheerfully,
As fathers such as ours
Will own no sous who fuller
When the cloud of buttlo lowers;
For war with them wns pnsttime
No danger would tbey floe!
Those brave old men who planted
Fimt the banks of Tennessee.
'You have doubtless heard the story
Of Palo Alto's day
Of Resaca de la Palnia

Ou every field our roniment
Was foremost iu the tight
On cneh, ou all, our comrades fell
And died as bravo men die;

There is no couutryon earth whore

. a a at
couscions of tho dignity of thoir ua
tare nnd position than here in onr
own AmcrieiL Tho fuct tliitt any
young girl bred and renred in this
broad commonwealth, however at
oludod and hninhlo her lot, nifty port-
aibly be raised to the high honor of
boing the wife of theohiof niugistrato
of tho nation, ougut to Btimalate all
healthful exertions towards obtaining
a thorough education.
Nearly every prosidontinl election
brings more or less of our country
men to the front, to fill official poni
tions, who have never before been
thus brought out Tho wives of these
men (it is to be honed that the ma
jority of thorn are married) raunttake
their places also in a different Rplicre
from that occupied in their homes in
the various state from which their
huBbaads have been called to assist
in moving tlio wheels and bearing
the responsibilities of our great gov.
ernmcut. Fit yourselves for such po
sitions, we say to you, girls of tho
present day. Hundrods of govern
ment officials imply hundrods of
wives. If theso women aro rightly
fitted for their positions, their influ
ence for good might be immense.
Let us have educated girls not
merely glossed over with superficial
accomplishments, but thoroughly in
formed and self-reliant, with n noble
ambition to develop their host pow
ers of body nnd mind, well trainod
physiques and well cultured intel
lects, in this day of opportunities, can
be attained to. by the masses oi
Americnn women, nud this is ono of
the glories of our free and enlight
ened goverumont.
Iu going through lifo with eyes
and heart open, wo soo this groatlaw
prevailing more generally than at first
glnuce would indicate. As wo loam
to look below tho surfaco of things,
we find through evory grade of hu
manity it is "ceutper cont", right
along. What we might suppose an
inequality, upon closer inspection
shows the true adjustment of the
principle, . "so much for so much".
Not but that there may be exceptional
cases to this rule, but this only
proves it truo in the main. No one,
after all, would be quite willing to
exchange his burden for that of an
other ; certainly not, when what this
change implies is understood. Each
ono is best adapted to the individual
bearing it, and to those who seem to
be more hardly pressed than some
others, there is more of strength to
bear, and more of the starry lights
gleaming through the shado ws and
clouds around them.

Too Much Sweepiso. Tho advisa
bility of giving every apartment a
vicrorous "broom cleuuiug" nt loast
once a week has been so strenuously
insisted upon by some notable house
keepers that it has by many been
converted into on imperative duty.
But lookine at tho mutter in an un
prejudiced light, one cannot clearly
6430 why a drawing-room inhabited
perhaps only a few hours of the af
ternoon and ovening, or an unoccu
pied guest-chamber, Hhould require
tho same amount of purification de
manded by a sewing, sitting, or din-intr-room.
The dust-pan and brush
are labor-saving machines that do not
receive due appreciation. By their
aid in removing a littlo dust here and
a littlo there, the business of sweep
ing a wholo room may be deferred at
time, when at the first glance any
