Perish the hand that would destroy The temple of our sires! Terish the heart that hopes for joy In its consuming fires! Let not the monster be forgot Who dares to light the flame, But curse him with a traitor's lot, And with a traitor's name. Our fainting hopes refuse to die, Our tottering bulwarks stand, And freedom's banner still floats high O'er a united land. The stars that gem the azure fold, Muy cease awhile to shine; But tremble not! the arm that holds The flagstaff is Divine! While the dark raven bodes despair, And still our fear renews, The noble eagle high in air, His onward way pursues. He dreads not there the tempest's wrath, Though all its thunders roll; But soars above the tempest's path, Exulting to the goal. 1 i mm m BURY ME WHERE I WAS BORN. Oh! bury me, oh! bury me, In the vale where I was born, Where the babbling brook glides gently by As a dream of peace at morn; And eglantines and roses sweet, On their banks recn bowers weave, And gay birds sing from rosy morn Till the dewy hours of eve. There, unnoted, fled youth's golden days, On light and airy wing, As a cloud across a summer skv, Or flowers of early spring. Burv me, oh! burv me there, In that dear old vale, and blest By the dearest ties of human love, That can thrill the human breast. 'Twas there my holy mother died, Ere my heart knew aught of care, Or had felt the pain and cold neglect That the orphan heart must bear. There grandpa watched my childish sports With a beaming eye of joy, And tears rolled down his furrowed cheeks, As he called me his "orphan boy." Then bury me, oh! bury me In that hallowed vale and blest, Where all the loved of childhood's years Lie low in their dreamless rest. Bury me by the dear one's side, And let the roses' sweet perfume Laden the breezes that shall wave Tl'.o rri'i'ti yaoviT ny tomb. From the Ladies Visitor. COUSIN BEN. UY MIRIAM F. HAMILTON. i 'Visitors!' exclaimed Kate Ben net, im- patiently, ns she laid aside the took which i sue naJ ueen leading, ana in Avlucn sue i cards which the servant presented. 'Dear me, how provoking! Just as I am ! in the must exciting part of the storj- and that part, disagreeable Emily Archer, txo she added, readiiiLj one of the cards; 'who else, I wonder?' Was there magic in that simple bit of paste-board, inscribed only with two words Richard Warren?' It would almost seem so, so instantaneously did her countenance change. The frown that had disfigured her beautiful brow, had disappeared, her eyts sparkled, And without another thought of the book, she hastily assured herself, by a glance at the mirror, that her toilet was unexceptionable, r.nd left the room As she entered the drawing-room, and greeted her guests with all the grace and j elegance of manner for which she was dis i tinguished Emily Archer surveyed her j wlth one rapid, critical glance; but dress, as I 1 O ; well as manner, was faultless. 'It must be confessed that Kate Bennet enters a room like . queen she thought, with a pang of jealousy, as in Richard War ren's face she read undisguised admiration ! of the lovely girl before them. What casual observer, who had marked the meeting of these young ladies wouh: j have dreamed that, under all the outwart: J friendliness, each hated tho other with their j , , , , ww v w, Yet so it was. Kate and Emily were ri val belles, and their claims to admiration were so equally balanced that it required no little exertion on either side to gain the as cendency and be acknowledged the victor If Kate, with her classical features, quoen lv dignity, elegant figure, and exquisite taste, at lirst sight threw her rival into the shade, Emily's piquant style, animated coun tenancc, and sprightly conversation, were by many preferred to Kate's statcsquo beau ty. It was impossible to decide which was the loveliest; each had their adherents and admirers, but as they were equally numor ous, it seemed probable that the season would draw to a close without the all-im portaut decision of the question, which had been par excellence, the belle. Just at this time, Richard Winter return ed from Europe. Tho arrival of so untie niably elegant, handsome and wealthy a gentleman, was an event all the fashiona bio world was in a flutter, and the rivals show at once that the important epoch had arrived. Sha whoso claim he advocated whom he favored with his admiration, wo'd! at once stand upon the precarious pinnacle of blele-ship. Each left nothing undone to win him to her side, though their tac tics were entirely different. Emily brought to bear upon him the bat teries of her sprightly wit, while Kate adroitly laid tho mine of apparent queenly indifference. And yet, though it was evi dent that Richard admired both, his pref erence was not known perhaps he hardly knew himself which he thought the mcst charming. But during this exposition of the claims of the rivals, a lively conversation had been discussed, as well as some of their mutual friends, and in the midst of some wickedly witty remarks of Emily on a would be fash ionable lady, a loud voice was heard in the hall. It came nearer the door, and the words could be distinctly understood: You no-brained, impudent jackanapes, I'll teach you to laugh out on the other side of your mouth.' The door was flung open, and in walked a tall, athletic and sunburnt young man, whose really fine form was disguised in an ill-gtting 6uit of evidently domestic manu facture, and who stood for a moment awk wardly looking around him; then hastily approaching Kate, he flung his arms around her, a loud smack upon the cheek. She withdrew herself quickly and haught ily from his embrace. 'Sir!' She said with freezing dignity. 'Law! don't you know who I be?' ex claimed tho new comer, in no wise discon certed. 'Well, now, I do actually believe you've forgotten me. Don't you know your cousin Ben? You see I don't like farming any how you can fix it, so I quit it, and come to the city. Joe Simpson was to our place, and he is doing first rate here. He said it was hard to get a start in the city, but I guess I ain't goin' to slump through where he gets ahead. I'll risk it anyhow. At the commencement of this speech, Kate had alternately flushed and paled for she was so deeply mortified at Richard Warren and Emily. It restored all her m pride. I With all the grace of which she was mis tress, she turned to the new comer: You must excuse me, Cousin Ben she said, 'that I had forgotten you. A few years make a great many changes, and I can hardly retrace in your countenance a feature that reminds me of the lad who went nutting with me in the dear old woods of Hampton. Allow me Miss Archer she added, turning to her, 'to present to you my cousin Mr. Adams, and with perfect composure- she saw his awkward bow and scrape. Emily Archer at once mischievously com menced with Mr. Adams, and was proceed ing to draw him outmost ludicrously when Kate came to the Rescue: 'You forgot, Miss Archer she said, that my cousin has just arrived in town ind has not as yet hud any opportunity to see the lions. He will be better prepared to give you his opinion of them in a few- days, Avhen I shall have had the pleasure of acting as his cicerone.' Mr. Warren like a well bred gentleman as he was, addressed some remarks to Mr. tVdams on subjects with which he was fa miliar, and shortly after, he, with. Miss Archer, took leave, Kate could have cried with vexation, as she thought of the ludi crous description of the scene which Emily would delight in giving, but she controlled herself. She was a kind-hearted girl, and could not forget the pleasant visits she had paid to her dear uncieand aunt Adams, or Ben' untiring efforts to make her happy when at his father's house. She resolved to repay him now, and her poor Ben, as she made all sorts of inquiries about the old farm . No sooner had Richard Warren, with Miss Archer, left the house, than she be gar with all her powers of sarcasm, as Kate had foreseen, to ridicule the scene they had witnessed. Mr. Warren smiled but seemed absent. I had no idea the Benncts had such vul gar relations continued Emily, well know ing that the fastidious Richard Warren would consider this a serious objection in the woman of hiä choice. 'Notwithstanding all Kate's elegance, there is a certain something about the fam ily that betrays low blood.' 'Yes, returned Warten, hardly know in'' what he said; and feeling that she had gained one point, Emily walked on in the best possible spirits internally triumphing over the discomfiture of her rival. That evening at tho opera, who should be at Kate's side but Cousia Ben, dressed in excellent taste, and evidently much in terested in the performance, whita Miss Bennet listened with polite attention to his frank and sensible criticism. At parties, too, he was her attendant; and this open acknowledgement of her relation, quite blunted the point of Emily's satire. Mr. Bennet assisted tho youth to a situation, and very speedily his rusticity woro off. He had both good looks and good sense, and under his cousiu's judicioiuj t!'ajoinr he very soon did her credit, even among the crowd of fine gentlemen who surrounded her. Emily Archer saw all, and bit her lip in vexation. She could not but acknowledge the superiority of Kate's strategy, and that she hoped would humiliate her. From that time Richard Warren was her constant attendant, and ere long he had openly acknowledged his preference by off ei ing her his heart and hand. 'My dear Kate he said shortly after their betrothal. 'I shall never ceaso to thank Cousin Ben for giving me my bride. I ad mired you as a belle, but his coming and your reception of him proved that you were something better than a mere fine lady that you were a true woman, blest with the greatest of all attraction a heart. Con fess, dearest, that you owe him a debt of gratitude, alsothat you afo as happy as I am.' Kate smiled one of her most bewitching smiles. 'I certainly do not look upun his mal ap propos arrival as a misfortune aU present she said, 'whatever I may do in the fu ture. Her glance of loving confidence contra dicted her last mischievous words, and sirs listened with downcast eyes and blushing cheeks to. the assurance of her lover thaiV"1 wrc.nce; n tne fttate ol .Uas- O no exertion of his should be wantuig lb keey her from regretting the event whichhabV 1 ! given mm a glimpse oi ner heart Many years had passed.' In the sober matron, Mrs. Warren, one wotild hardly have recognized the flashing belle, Kate Bennet. Blest with wealth, a cheerful home a fond husband, and lovely children, she had led a happy life, and time had )ut increased the attachment of tho wedded pair. But cloudless as her life had been, a storm was gathering. Her husband, a' ways cheerful, grew moody, restless and unhappy. She tried in vain to discover the cause of his gloom, but he made only evasive replies to her inquiries, and she could only guess at his troubles; that they were connected with his business, she imagined, and her sur mise were correct. lie entered the room whore she was sit ting, one day, and exclaimed, flinging his hat on a sofa: Kate, we are ruined. In vain I have struggled for weeks past; it is useless to at tempt it longer. To-day I shall be known as a bankrupt penniless, and worse than penniless. In trying to double my fortune JO j ' I have lost all. You and my children are beirirars. Why should loss of wealth trouble you dear Richard?' said his wife tenderly, ap proaching and taking his hand. 'This is after all, but a trifling misfortune. While we are spared to each other, blest with health and good children, why should we repine at the mere loss of fortune?' The husband groaned. 'Ah, to be dishonored, Kate!' he said; to fear to look men in the face because I am bankrupt unable to pay my honest debts. Kate, tho very idea drives me near ly mad. To avoid this, what have I done? I have passed sleepless nights and anxious days but in vain.' With fondcares9Ts, soothing words his wife strove to sooth him; but alas, he paid little heed to her efforts. Just then a servant entered saying that a gentleman wished to see Mr. Warren. Tell him I cannot replied his master; 'I will see nobody But you will replied a cheerful voice. and a gentleman who had closely followed the servant entered. How is this, my dear Dick?' he said; 'you are in trouble, and did not apply to me. That was not right?' 'And of what use would it have been?' returned Warren. 'I am weary of borrow ing from one friend to repay another day after day. Even that lias failed me at last, and I have come home to hide myself from tho prying gaze of those who will too soon be talking of my disgrace.' 'I had heard rumors of this, Dick, and went to your office to see you, as you'were not there I followed you here. Now my dear fellow listen ! me; you have two hours before banking hours arc over. Hero is a blank check; fill it up yJurself, and it shall be duly honored. Repay it at your conve nience. No thanks; it is only a loan. I know your business well, and that in a lit tle time, with perhaps a little assistance, all will be right again.' Totally overcome, Richard eoulJ only grasp his friend's hand, while his eyes fil led with unwonted moisture. 'How can we ever thank you enough, dearest, cousin Ben?' cried Kate. 'How can wo repay you?' Tut, tut, Kate, I am only discharging a part of a debt I owe you my dear girl. I owe all I possess all I am to you. When I first came here, a raw ignorant country booby, you were not ashamed of me; and moro than all unvarying kindness, offering mo a homo and innooent amusements, in your society kept me out of many tempta liyqs he'je ft I?ue1y, inexperienced lad such as, without you, I should have been. I thanked you for it then een when I did appreciate the sacrifice it was to a fine la dy, to have a pumpkin" like myself about her; and when I knew more of the world and understood the rarity of such conduct, I love you the better for it, and felt the more grateful. I had no opportunity be fore to show it in any substantial form. But now you see you are under no obliga tion, I am only getting rid of alittle of the heavy load you placed me under long ago. Be off with you, Dick; hereafter, rely on me in all cases like the present. Don't get discouraged too easily business men, of all others, should have elastic temperments. Good bye, now he added, as Warren dis appeared, kissing tears from Kate's cheek, 'and be assured that Beu Adams, tho mil lionaire, has never forgotten, and will try to pay your kindness to your poor awkward cousin.' 'I am richly repaid she murmured. How little I dreamed, long ago that twice in my life I should owe my highest happi ness to the trifling acts of -kindness towards my good cousin Be;i. m From the Chicago Daily Times. A Striking Coincidence. In the Territory of Kansas there is a L.'.011 IT T .1 J. r sTcnuus mere is aiso a city caned Law rence ;indeed, the former ;vas named after the latter, and intended, like the latter, to do honor to the nnme of a family widely and favorably known4as merchants, through out the Union. The city of Lawrence in Kansas, has lately been made the theater of scenes of violence. A Sheriff and a posse of twenty men have taken possess ion peaceably of the guns, annon and ammunition, which had been there gather ed for the avowed purpose of resisting the laws of the land, and shooting down the officers and constituted authorities of the Territory. Over this "outrage," this " horrible atrocity," this " fiendish pursuit of freemen," as Reeder called it, the Abo lition papers of Chicago and of the coun try are howling with excessive unction. We wish to call up to the minds of these men and to spread before the reflecting and intelligent men of the day, a brief chapter in the history of the country, and a chap ter not yet two years old. In the month of July, 1851, a few brief hours after the celebration of the glorious anniversary of Independence, a band of "Ruffians, twelve hundred strong, living in and about the city of Lawrence, in the State of Massachusetts that soil, which Sumner calls his home, and wherein the Abolitionists declare no man can stand ex cept as an equal in the eyes of God and ' man m that city of Lawrence, in the i r. a r if l .1.11 State of Massachusetts, on the Cth day of Julv, 1854, this band of 1,200 "Massa chusetts freemen," without one word of provocation assaulted at midnight the hum ble tenements and cabins, inhabited by free white laborers, and their families, and in two hours leveled forty of those dwellings of the poor. In vain did woman shriek for mercy at tho hands of " Massachusetts freemen ;" iu vain did children implore that aged parents be allowed to clothe them selves in their usual garments the ears of "Massachusetts freemen" were deaf all such appeals. In vain did he husband ask that the humble roof which 'sheltered the person of his wife then intthe pangs of child-birth, be not fired until he could pro cure another place for the agoniaed wife and anticipated babe ! The hearts of" Mas sachusetts freemen" inhabiting the " City of Lawrence" refused the prayer, and thrusting wife and husband out upon the barren fields, where with no other canopy than afforded by the stars, a child was born on the soil of the humanity-loving Massa chusetts ! These things occurred in Law rence, in the State of Massachusetts ; and who ever read an article in the Abolition papers of the country calling on men and money to defend tho homes of those free white laborers, outraged and torn down iu the city of Lawrence, in the free State of Massachusetts ? One of the victims of that night of atro city in Lawrence, Massachusetts, was sadly injured by a blow from a stone cast by one of the ruffians ; both he and his ruflian as sailant came to Chicago the latter stalks tho streets, bawling for freedom in Kansas, while the former reposes in the cemetery, hastened to an untimely grave by the ruf fianism of the " freemen of Massachusetts," committed in tho city of Lawrence ! Tho free white laborers of that city of Lawrence, resolved to submit to no repeti tion of the outrage of the " freemen of Lawrence." One of them, now a citizen of Chicago, repaired to Boston, and there purchased for the use of himself and his companions, and to defend themselves and their wives and children from violence, a sufficient number of guns, pistols, ami powder anil ball. These weie packed in boxes and conveyed to Lawrence. Upon their arrival there, a select number of the lluflians waylaid the wagon, and attempted to carry off tho boxes containing tho noa- pons of defence the driver succeeded in reaching the houso of tho owner, and there for hours a contest was waged in the streets of the city of Lawrence iu the free State of Massachusetts- whether free white men were entitled to the constitutional privilege of keeping arms. The arms were soon put into the hands for which they were de signed, and then by armed fortes dhese men drove back the llullians, and vindica ted their own constitutional secured liberty? The Mayor and the authorities of that city of Lawrence, seconded the demand f the Massachusetts ruffians that these guns' should bo delivered up. Who has evor hoard that this reckless, brutal outrage, committed by the "freemen of Massa chusetts" in the frco city of Lawrence, i . . 1 1..' e condemnation wiiii one i wor Ot from any of those presses which are now filled with such indignant invectives against Sheriff Jones and his posse, who have taken possession of the other city of Law rence in the Territory of Kansas ! The owner of these muskets, purchased as we have said, to defend the very hearthstones of free white men in Lawrence, Massachu setts, was that night assailed in the street and stabbed with a bowie knife in the side. He drew his pistol and fired at his assail ant, wounding him in the arm. For this he was seized and thrown into prison, the Judge who so ordered it saying that to re lease him, would be to insure both his own and the prisoner's murder by the armed bulltes, hunting to death the man who had purchased firearms to defend the house in which resided his wile and children. The Court itself, satisfied that the accused (now a citizen of Chicago) had committed no offence, declared that to release him would be to decree the murder of both Court and prisoner. And this was in Lawrence, not Lawrence in Massachusetts ! Who can remember that the Abolitionists of Chicago ever held a public meeting to sympathize with, or contributed a dollar to assist those free white men, who were struggling upon soil long since consecrated to freedom, for tho humble right of living in their own houses, exempt from midnight outrage and brutal violence! Oh, no! Goodrich and Arnold and Blackwell and Yaughan had no tears to shed over the outrages in Law rence, Massachusetts, because that was a case where the intolerant spirit of Massa chusetts bigotry was outraging the rights of free while men. No regiments were raised to march to Lawrence, Massachu setts, but tho unfortunate victims were compelled to defend as best they could the commonest rights of humanity. We are compelled to defer the review of the rest of this case, till to-morrow. We publish, with pleasure, the follow ing article from the Philadelphia Ledger, a neutral paper. The subject is becoming of momentous importance : The Kansas Troubles. We have dis patches in this morning's Ledger from Kansas, bringing rumors of a battle at Lawrence, an 1 the burning of the town, together with tho hotel, at Kansas city. We know not, when we are getting Kan sas news, whether we are getting real facts, or only the exaggerated distortions of crazy partizans. It is a little singular that this news, which was telegraphed to the city on Saturday morning, should not be better confirmed by Sunday night. The dispatch ' received last night, at ten o'clock, which j numbered the fourth from Kansas, has not a word concerning this reputed battle, and and destruction of the town of Lawrence, i Such an event, if it had occurred, we shoud j suppose, would fly through the country as quick as lightning could carry it. The last dispatch represents that the Committee of Safety of Lawrence had de termined to oiler no resistance to tl.e'U. S. Marshal in the exertion of his writ. Bv such an occurrence as reported, if it ' is not yet improbable. The state of pub- lie feeling in that territory, the result of the i preachings und the teachings of the fana tics, North and South, tend to that result. Civil war once begun in Kansas, and where would it stopand when would it end? It would ivt.stop until it had involved all the other slates of the Union, nor would it end while either party had strength to contin ue the contest. It would not be a mere separation into a northern and southern confederacy, whore each would flourish under institutions of its own liking and choice, but war, bitter and unrelenting, would be waged as long as the separation existed, until these would be pnothing left of this Republic but. tho miserable ruins our folly had caused. Yet this is the ral alcholyand wrenched condition to which many of our newspapers and politicians are endeavoring to drive us. On various occasions lately, we have noticed articles in certain journals, as well South as north, pretending to prove, by statistics assumed to be reliable, that the Union is comparatively worthless. On the one hand, the New York Tribune has "facts and figures" to prove that the North is financially, morally and religiously a loser by our time honored confederation. On the other Charleston Standard produces "column, of arithmetic" to demonstrate that the South would be more prosperous and happy if it would cut loose from the North aud even re-open tho slave trade. It is a sufficient reply to this surt of ar gument, that, if statistics should establish such two opposite conclusions, they must be misunderstood, if not entirely garbled. Such, in reality, is tho fact. Nothing is more unanswerable than statistics, where they are both comprehensive and correct; but nothing is more valueless, as proof, when these qualities are wanting. It is by quoting only such figures as tell in their fa vor and by forgetting that at best not one- thinfof the actual statistics have ever been reducod to figures, that ulras. North and South, fancy they demonstrate that the two sections of the Union could be better off alone, or rather better oil" if engaged j in an internecine war, as would bj the ; inevitable consequence of a separation. For the value of the Union, after all, cannot be estimated by dollars and cents. ! Its advantages ramify so intricately into the economical, social and political life of the people of the several States, that no calculation of the pecuniary, worth is, or even will be, possible. There is net a bit of property in the Middle State, for exam ple, not a farm anywhere iu the Great West; not a manufactory in New England : not a mercantile lirm in the length or breadth of the land ; not a plantation in all tho South; tu a steamboat, railroad or telegraph ; not a canal or chartered company, which would not be depreciated, permanently, by a dis solution of tho Union, and not a trade or occupation of labor which would not suffer incalculably thereby. To enumerate even thoso things in which the injury would be the most apparent, would require entire i columns. nVc must content ourselves with putting a single illustration. Where "would be the prosperity of Pennsylvania in tho event of a dissolution 1 A border State, certain to become the battle ground of the two exasperated communities, its field would be ravaged, its trade ruined, its population drained, its people everywhere impoverished. Ten years of disunion would undo for Pennsylvania all that seventy years of union had achieved. The blessings of peace are proverbial. The United States have outstripped Europe so enormously in prosperity, not only be cause this was a new country, but because the Union secures a lasting peace between tho several commonwealths, and with it the advantages that flow from peace. Hero we have no war taxes ; no frightful public debt, the result of preceding wars ; no passport system to check travel ; no custom-house at the frontier of each State ; and no in ternational jealousies and misunderstand ings preventing the business men of differ ent nations from entering into thos3 close relations which they otherwise would, to the mutual advantage of all. In fact, so common have the blessing of peace be come; as between the different States, thfit few men realize what disasters would flow from an opposite condition of affairs. -We do not exaggerate, however, when we say that a dissolution would lead to a repeti tion, on this continent, of the incessant wars which have devastated tho great Christian commonwealth of Europe lor centuries back, retarding incalculably its civilization, and rendering the religion it professes a hissing scorn among the na tions. Satan, it is said, assumes the garb of an angel of light, when he would delude and mislead. It is a trick of the- day for men, who seek to advance their own ends even at the cost of the Union, to pretend that the love of liberty is their ruling mo tive. Yet the preservation of the Union is the only security freedom has, here or abroad. Stupyixg Latin.
