Why swell those solemn soundsof woe ? Why lall unchecked a people's tears ? What shining markhaa death laid low ? A victim to it's paltry fears ! A hero takes immortal rest, A patriot's toiis, for aye, are o'er ; His spirit pnre has jolted the blessed, . And Hkaton lingers here no more ! No more ! His soul can never die ; Not when the earth itselt expires ! He lives, example bright and high, To shape and guide unformed desires ; To help the helpless, cheer the true. Lead back the erring to the right ; Point out the meed to honor due, And reverence teach to virtue's right ! Out from the dust ot common fate, He stepped when the cry was loud for men ; Mcasure-him, dead, In death's estate ; Is his statue greater now tbsn then ? Did he get or eive by the people's tru6t ? Behold! what shrunken lorm of dust ! lie stood where few had sticngth to stand, In the wild fore-front of a giant time ; With every patriot hand in hand. Doing humanity's work sublime ;. Nor even in triumph put it by, But undor it laid him down to. die . No more will he point out the way, ' Through threads of life's entangled flight ; "" His spirit soared at dawn of day. And not in shades of sombre night. But sorrow Is deep on brow and breast, And our beloved friend may rest. A friend to all! o all do grieve! He was a hero ! heroes do weep 1 He was a man and men believe, That such as be ne'er know death's sleep ! Yet sweet is the scene, when such men die, " When noble souls retire to rest ; So dies a wave along the shore. As calmly breathes the expiring breast" Bereaved kindred, in hearts bowed down, Tour loss bis gain an immortal crown. The casket only yields to earth ; The clay reposes 'neath the sod ; His spirit claims eternal birth. And smiles triumphant near its God ! What's Hallowed Ground ? What's hallowed ground ? Has earth a clod Its Maker meant not should be trod By man, the image of his God, Erect and free, Unscourged by superstition's rod, To bow the knee? What's hallowed ground 'where mourned and missed, Theiips rcooee our love has kissed, But Where's their memory's mausion ? Is't Yon cbuchyard's bowers ? No ! in ourselves their sonls exist, A part of ours. A kiss can consecrate the ground Where mated hearts are mutual bound : The spot where love's Urst links were wound, That ne'er are riven. Is hallowed, djwn to earth's profound, Aud up to heaveu ! What hallows ground where heroes slrep ? 'lis not the sculptured piles you heap : In dews that heavens far-distant weep Their turf may bloom ; Or genii twine beneath the Hecp Their coral tomb. But strew his ashes to the wind Whose sword or voice has saved mankind And is he dead, whose glorious mind Lilts thine on high ? To live in hearts we leave behind. Is not to die. Is't death to fall for freedom's right ? He's dead alone that lacks her light ! And murder sullies, in heaven's sight. The sword he draws : What can aloue ennoble fight? A noble cause? Give that : and welcome war to brace Her drums ! end rend heaven's reeking space ! The colors planted face to face, The charging cheer. Though death's pale horse lead on -the chase, Shall still be dear. . . -- ,f.j . r What's hallowed ground ? 'Tis what gives birth To sacred thoughts in souls ot worth ! Peace! independence! truth! go forth Earth's compass round ; And your nigh-priesthood shall make earth All hallowed ground ! Campbell. Livingstone His Probable Fate At the final fortnightly meeting of the session ot 1869-70 of tbe Royal Geograph ical Society of England, in London, June 14, Sir R. Murchison referred to the present position ot Dr. Livingstone and the succor which is sent to him. He said : There hare been great misap prehensions about this affair, and I have re ceived numerous applications from active young men, anxious to go in search of Dr. Livingstone, supposing that there was a real expedition about to start from this country or elsewhere. There is no such ex pedition, even in imagination, and certainly none in reality, contemplated in any way. Dr. Livingstone has been more than three years and a half in the heart of Africa without a single European attendant. I am not sure that the sight of a young gentle man sent out from England, who was not acclimatized, would not produce a very baa eflect instead of a good one upon my friend the doctor, because he would have to take care of the new arrival, who would vtry soon die there, and the poor doctor would have an additional load. I have, therefore, to announce that there is no such intention whatever. I have received a dozen letters from admirable yonng volun teers, who are anxious to distinguish them selves, but who have not the least idea of what they are about I have every reason to believe that the 1,000 that the Govern ment has given will go out by the Consul of Zanzibar, who happens, accidentally, to be in this country, and who is going out immediately. He will instruct Dr. Kirk, the Vice Consul, to refit the same expedition which was started before, but which was impeded by an attack of cholera. The cholera has passed away entirely, the country is free from Zanzibar, and the ouly difficult; now is to get to Ujiji, where my dear and valued friend was and still is, for he cannot move forward or backward with out carriers, supplies, and so forth. It will take two months or more lor those supplies to go from the seaboard to Ujiji, therefore you must "put aside all anxiety lor some months to come. 1 hope in about seven or eight months hence you will hear good news, and that very soon after we shall sec our friend again in his native country. A Paris Milliner' Bill. Paris has a milliner, involving a dispu ted bill, which has also puzzled the courts, and still remains undecided. Tbe bill was rendered for three years, which is, a long account, but the amount was some $30,000. The lady who shone in this extravagance is named in tbe bill as Madame La Comtesse and Milady Hope-Rapp, and it is perhaps quite as much her notoriety as the charges which make the case noticeable. This lady is the daughter of Gen. Rhapp, and some years ago married the &uglish banker Hope. Although she married him simply and solely for his money, it was not until she bad passed the nower of her youth anoVbe come the mother of several children, that she fell in lore so decidedly with a Count, young cnougn to oe her son, that her Hus band felt authorized to procure a divorce. After his death she assumed her maiden name. An idea ot the scale of charges to which this lady objects may be gained by considering the fact the simply cutting out of one dress is put clown at 800 francs. There are other items, such as "lent $15,000 to juauame ia uouuesse Hope Kapp one evening, wnen sne intenaea to play at bae carat; premium on aforesaid loan, 15,000 irancs ; interest, uu irancs," which go to show bow the sum total was achieved. But it is only fair to say thut Madame La Com tesse paid some S80.000 of the amount be fore she began to grumble. The Countess Rapp is a sister-in-law of the Duke of New castle, and seems to particulate in the ma? ninceni tastes oi mat ycung gentleman, who baa recently come to grief in a similar man ner, dui iroin a cuilerent cause. rour negro women were drowned at Hairston s Quarter, in Davie couuty, a few uays since, it appears tdat a negro was conveying them across the Yadkin river in a canoe, which happened to strike a anair and was capsized.

D'Hautcrine. daughter of a flourish ing French bookseller and much noted in private circles for her queenly beauty and fine touch as a pianiste, was a lady who, ac cording to a lnte issue of La Guulois, gave one more proof to the romantic that lore is stronger than life. It was her yearly cus tom to spend the winter at Nice, for the greater elaboration of her musical studies ; and while sojourning in the latter city she met her fate in the person of an Italian, named Morplain, who, from the hour of their first meeting, gave her the most ardent homage of his heart. She being thirty years of age and he thirty-four, they loved with that climacteric ardor which is often characteristic of passion just felt in the sixth and seventh lustres of life. At the beginning, of course, their apparent relations were kept subject to the colder social for malities; but before long Mademoiselle's friends saw that her feelings were too se rious to be further disguised, and lost no time in warning her of the possible conse quences. They knew and told her, that her fattier would never yield assent to her mar riage with Morplain, who, it seems, was a man ot limited means, and a rather cloudy character. Seeing that she had paid little heed to the remonstrances, and feeling that they had a certain implied responsibility for her while she remained in Nice, they wrote gradually to -her fattier on too Abject, de siring him to act upon his own judgment in the matter. This M. ITHautcrine did, by at once commanding his daughter to dis miss her Italian suitor and return home, or expect the severest penalty of filial disobe dience. Parental policy is seldom wisely demonstrated when it begins with despotic assumptions; and in this case, as might have been anticipated, it hut augmented frenzied folly into foolish frenzy. The lov ers read the letter together in despair. The whole world was against them ; they had nought left on earth but each other; and if man sought to separate them here, in Heaven they might be one forever. The argument is an old one, and contains about as much sense as generally characterizes that little idiot, Gupid. " We will die together," they said, and at once made elaborate prepara tions for double amanticide. Morplain, armed with a pistol, a poniard, and a bottle of laudanum, took the love-lorn booksellers daughter on his manly arm as for a morning promenade, and together they stroll from Nice to a romantic spot in the grounds of the villa of Tcissere, in the suburban valley Montcgat. Arriving at the chosen scene, they sat down side by side upon the grass, ami, after an impassioned leave-taking on earth, swallowed the contents of the lauda num phial between them. Probably they took over doses; for the deadly drug in stead of throwing them into thnt which is a balm for all the woes ot the wretched, made them more wretched than they had ever been before in all their lives. So much did poor Morplain suffer in this unromatic way that he said he could bear it no longer, and drew liis pistol. The lady answered that it would drive her mad to be left alone with a lileless body, and pointing to a place upon her breast where she could be shot " without disfigurement" (cat la feminet) demanded that he should slay her first He fired point blank, and, stein" her fall, darted frantically from her a short distance and blew out his own brains. Mademoiselle, however, was not quite dead yet; and upon recovering lrom tbe hrst shock, arose to her feet and painfully made her way to the edge of the nearest public road. There, faint and bleed ing she was quickly discovered by some peasants, to whom she told the story here repeated. ' I shall die in a moment," she added, " and you will find Morplan lying upon the grass yonder. He feared failure with the pistol, and you will see that he still - holds his poniard in his band." They found tbe body as she had indicated, and conveyed it, with her, back to Nice, where a judicial inquiry was as once begun. Tbe dying woman lived but long enough to repeat her explanation of the double tragedy ; and ncn throwing ncrseti upon tbe bier of her lover, expired under the Very eyes 6f her judgei. Once more had love proved i'self stronger than reason, and answered the edict of the latter with folloy's last resources. Horrible Contest A Drinking Duel. The New York Sunday Dispatch is our au thority for the following : A fatal drinking match came off in Wil liamsburg a few days a''o which has not vet -been made public. It appears there was a dispute between an old t rencli pnysiciaD, and the proprietor of one of the largest breweries in the place, as to which of the two could drink the most liquor and carry it off. They decided to test tbe question by trial, said test to be a match at drinking liquor at a convenient saloon, the party giv ing up the trial first to be considered a second-class drinker, and pay for a grand supper. Both parties to this novel and dis gusting contest were large men, the physi cian being able to turn the scales at two hundred and twenty pounds, while the brewer was perfectly mammoth in propor tions a perfect Gambrmus weighing fully two hundred and fifty pounds. A large crowd of professional and amateur drinkists were on hand when the match commenced, and the bets were freely taken in favor of the brewer, tbe German element predominating. The first instalment of four bottles,, of what was labelled "Bourbon Whistey," were disposed of, each man drinking the same as his opponent, and at the same time. The whisky gave them renewed vitality, apparently, for they laughed and talked right merrily, albeit they began to give evidence of having cul tivated a crop ot lur on their tongues, still they drank about once every five minutes, and drank deeper and deeper. They changed their tipple to claret, as a tonic, and here the Frenchman seemed lo be more at home. It did not suit the German so well, however, and it was soon changed to sherry, after three bottles had been gulped down by each. The sherry was only pala table while two battles lusted, one each. Their eyes began to show that peculiarly glassy glare seen only in those upon whom the cllects ot liquor nave gained ascendancy, but their strong physique enabled them to keep their seats, and showed very little shakiness. 1 hey called lor brandy, of which they partook a little more sparingly than of the other liquors, seemingly aware that while they had no liar ot the previous draughts in which they had been indulging, there was "death in the bowl" that con tained this poison. The German reached out cautiously to the bottle to replenish his alass. - The Frenchman endeavored to follow suit The effort oo the part of the latter was futile he could not more his arm ; he endeavored to reach out his other hand, but it fell off the arm of bis chair and hung powerless. He straightened back in his chair slowly. his body made a convulsire movement, his lace became horribly distorted, his eyes seemed as if they would ny out ot tueir sockets, his tongue rolled out of his mouth, a few gasps, his body trembled all over like a shaken leat uu was ueau. While the funeral was on its way to the cemetery the German also died, the coroner signing certificates ascribing death in both instances to heart disease. From the London Times. June 23.

A most horrible scene was enacted in the barn yard of Sam del Craft.a wealthy farmer, residing about two miles south of the vil lage of Glen Cove, on Sunday afternoon, by which his sister was gored to death by an inluriutcd cow. Miss Craft stepped out of me nouse to ieca a oroou oi young turkcye, when a cow that was walking about tbe yard rushed madly at her, striking her in the left side, crushing her against the fence and trampling and goring her in a 'erriblc manner. Iler screams attracted the atten tion ot a laborer named Sheridan, who hur ried to hex rescue and partly stunned the brute by a blow from a atooe. This, how' ever, added t her fury, as she renewed the attack, tossing the unfortunate woman un mercifully with her horns, and rending clothes and flesh alike. Sheridan again struck the animal a blow with a stone, which had the effect of knocking it down, while two of the sisters bore the body away. The animal soon recovered from the effects ot the blow, and again made a furious charge on the party, but Sheridan kept her back with stones, she retraining from touch ing him and evidently being determined to kill the ladies ; but the body was finally con veyed from the yard. The lady, however, was fully conscious all the time, and as she expired, eaid. "Shcluia killed. ,jie I'J - Her face and body were terribly bruistd. - There was a frightful and deep laceration in her left side, which caused her death. She was generally respected and had many warm friends. JV. V. HerM. Thc Sleep that Knows no Waking A Somnambulist Drowned. Wm. J. Bushncll. aged fourteen, whose parents reside at Old 'Say brook, Conn., was drowned on Friday last in the East River, under peculiar circumstances. The boy had been attending a boarding school in one of the North River towns, and left the institu tion on Friday morning with several other of the scholars, they having received a va cation to spend tbo Fourth of July at their homes. When the boys arrived in town they engaged passage on the steamer Elm City for Norwich. The day being very warm, young Bushncll bficame sleepy, so he pulled off his coat, assumed an easy position on the upper deck, aud Icll asleep. He had not long been in this condition when he rose from his chair in a somnambulic state, walk ed over to the side of the boat, and fell over board, the unfortunate boy was seen to drop iuto the water by those who stood on the pier at the time, and they made every effort to rescue him, but thev were unsuc cessful. The boy's body sank like lead, and did not reappear on the surface. The re mains were subsequently recovered, and Coroner Rollins held an inquest yesterday," when the above facts were elicited. It also appeared that the deceased had been a con firmed somnambulist, and the jury rendered a verdict of accidental death. The relatives of the boy found it difficult to obtain the necessary permit from the Board of Health for the removal of the remains from the county, owing to the early iiour at which their olncc is closed; and the absence of any one who was possessed of the necessary au thority. Itcas stated that no .one except Dr. Morris, the Sanitary Superintendent, can sign permits, and be could not be bund readily. The delays created by this manner ot transacting business arc of frequent oc currence. Two to One-Bnrglar Versos Man end Wife. The Providence Journal and the Boston Herald gives the following " combination " report of an attempted burglary in the for mer city, and its results. As a specimen of reportorial style it is not faultless, but the lesson it conveys is good. Thus tha.'Provi- dence Journal : Mr. Bern. T. Church, Jr., who is the hero, as his wife is certaiuly the heroine, of me adventure narrated below, is a Provi dence boy, and for some years improved hia morning houra in distributing Journal to subscribers in the 1 hird ward. Mr. Church now has a drug store in Boston, and it teems that Saturday crcning a rogue saw him put a large roll of bills into his pocket, preparatory to closing up. Mr. Church went home to his boarding house on Robin square, and retired, his room being in the second story. Soon after he had gone to sleep his wife noticed that the window bflnds had been opened, and looking snarp ly, she discerned the form of a man at the foot of a lounge." We quote now from the Boston Herald : "Mrs. Church at once cried out in a loud tone of voice, "Ben, Ben, there's a man on the lounge ; take the pistol and shoot him where be lies." Her scream awakened her husband, who at first tried to pacify her, he thinking that she had been dreaming and was badly frightened at what she bad 6ecn in her dream. In a joking way he continued to talk to her, while the burglar, hoping he would do so, crouched himself down into a small space between the foot of the lounge and the bureau. In the mean time the brave little wife was getting her dander up to the fighting pitch, and was just about to go for Mr. Burglar herself. when ber husband, being now fully awake, also noticed that tbe blinds were open, and remembering that the last thing he did be fore retiring was to close and fasten them, he began to think that his courageous wife was more than half right ; so springing from the bed he at once discovered the burglar in his crouching position, and made for him. "lie took him by the throat, and being a heavy, strong man. at once shutoffhis wind, and then called upon his wife, who was up and waiting for instructions, to light the as. This she promptly did, when a ta bleaux was presented in that bed room such as isseldom seen in first-class lodging houses. There, in the background was the heroic little woman with her long black hair streaming over her shoulder?, her white and jewelled hands clinched and ready for assault, while her keen black eyes were shooting daggers into the pule face of the prostrate burglar as he lay gasping beneath the tightening grasp of the infuriated hus band, and begging for his life, for he had been told by Mr. Church if he made any re sistance that lie would kill him on the spot. Finding that he had the burglar fully in his power, and satisfying himself that he had no deadly weapons, Mr. Church then drag ged him across the room, aud throw ing him down in a corner by the hall door, placed his foot upon his breast, while his wife handed ' hiin his clothes, and stood guard orcr the be wildered burglar while her husband dressed himself. When fully dressed Mr. Church discovered for the first time that his roll of bills, between $400 and $500, had been ta ken from his pocket, and on looking about, the wife found tbe money on the floor by the lounge, which, at her busbnnd's request, she deliberately counted and found all right Mr. Church then took his prisoner and, single-handed and alone, marched him off to the station-house in Jay street, where he gave the name of James Green, but after wards that of Martin Blackmore. He was dressed in a suit of clothes that were so made as to be converted into a light or black suit, and had no weapons about him save a small spring dirk knife with a broken point. 1 cstcrday morning Jie was removed to the Tomb.3 to await examination in the Municipal court to-day. - He hails from Canada, is nineteen years of age, sandy com plexion, freckled face and red-headed, and it is said, is well known to our officers as an expert thief" Humorists. The three humorists, Nas- br, Bilungs, and Twain, are thus described by a Boston correspondent of the New York Evening Post: "Nasby dislikes the title of humorist. He uses humor as an instrument for the enforcement of his points, which al ways involve somo political principle. His 4 best holt,' as he calls it, is no doubt 'strong horse sense.' Josh Billings is a born humor ist genial and tender-hearted, and heartily loved by those that know him well. He once said that nothing would delight him more than to lecture in Musical Hall, when he was eighty years old, with white hair falling over his shoulders, and 'lift' the au dience. He is now about sixty years of age. Mark Twain is more purely a literary man than either of tlie trio. He is very sensitive, and an unappreciative audience acts upon him like a cold shower bath. 1 wain will not lecture next season, he has got rich and married a wife, aud wisely preiers to taice nis ease." , Specimens of "Veritable Yarns" by an , Illinois Farmer. , " " ' nueni nrst came here in 1849 those oxen were steers. Stock was rather short iiien, ana i worKed the critters in early. Well, one day old Tennesson Smin, by the Lillypache, had cut a red elm and it got lodged in the sloo, and none of them dared venture out to cut it clear. So they hitched on alt the oxen they had and tried .mi urag it up on me oiutt. But with six yoke they couldn't mako it let go. Then some one said, "send for Spencer's' steers." When Mr. Smith's boy came I told him no' one could drive them but me. So I yoked up and went down. When I got there I said "Gentlemen take away your oxen," and they did. Then I told 'cm to cut a welt around the lo", so that my chain would be inside of it"just even with tho bark. Then I cut a slit from this welt to tie end of the butt, so that tbe taut of my chain would not catch in the hazel brush? . Then I put the chain round and hitched on, and took up the whip and just give the critters a cheerful start with the lasb. Tbey sprang to it and jerked the log two feet and then it stuck fast. Then I yelled and put on the string, and those two little fellows leaned into their work, and just shivered a little, and then thav went like a shot for a yard or two with a long recLstickJ behind 'em..' ancMkvarybodv'; shoutea UnoVl then just abut up their fly-traps and said not a woru. .jt or, uentlcmcn, Would you believe it, those two little bucks had drawn the heart right out of that log !

Well, just as I got shut of the town and had about eight miles ot prairie 'twixt me and Hanna, I heard a ratling nois behind me, and when I looked round there was a bouncing hail storm right upon me. I yelled at tho greys and flung my chaw of tobacco at Billy, for he was the laziest, and wo swung along at what you Yankees call a good Hiram . Woodruff pace.

" The day we celebrate " was inaugurated at the free baths yesterday by a grand charge of females of every age, color and condi tion, who advanced in a steady stream from 5 A. M. till 9 P. it., without seeming to di. minis) in numbers. The ticket-receivers who were stationed at the doors were kept as lively as crickets during the whole morn ing in giving out tickets anil answering questions put to them by their fair patrons, and at the conclusion of their day's labors fervent prayer went up, doubtless that such another throng would in the future never darken the doors, at least in the same man ner as yesterday, as it would require the ra- tience of Job himself, and the fortitude of Grant to withstand the avalanche of dif ficulties that surrounded the ticket-takers. " Mr. Officer," asked a damsel who came from seaend-avenue, " do you really think the bath is dangerous are there any vermin in the water t I have heard so many, many different stories about the class of people who frroaent thta-atou taia?r "it-M1. who irequent tnrm Sfctu lauurer reens and drunken- men that 1 have really re solved to test them myself and ascertain the truth." The questioner, who was " fair to look upon" accompanied the abov,e re mark) by a look of utter disdain at the fe males who were crowding in, but ber fears being quieted by the gentlemanly ushers. she ventured in, but soon returned with hor ror depicitcd upon her countenance at the spectacle that had greeted her astonished optics. Without waiting to explain her opinion of the scenes she had witnessed, she hurried out through the gangway, mut tering, "Horrible, filthy, indecent," until lost to view in the surging multitude of as tonished matrons aud maids. The merry laughter on the inside and tbe pleasant ex pression of the countenances of those who came out after having partaken of a bath in the cool, pure water, belied the exclama tions of the disgusted visitor. Throughout the day until their closing, fully 4,000 fami lies patronized both baths, and their popu larity lias been fully established. Yesterday each bath was provided with an experienced female waitress by Superintendent Kuack, who attended to the every want of their re spective charges. As ihc season advances, and tbe excellent manner in which the baths are conducted becomes known generally throughout tbe City, hundreds of ladies who have hitherto abstained from visiting through a fear ot impropriety, will, it is ex pected, patronize -them to an extent un known in the annals ot tree batbs. The bath at the foot of Charles street, by reason of its removal so recently from Thirteenth-street, was not crowded as much as the one at Fifth-street; as it was, however some 800 or 900 ladies visited it, a portion partially lrom curiosity, but most ot them to bathe. Owing to the great numbers present yesterday, which completely took the olliccrs on hand by surprise, it has been decided in the future to lengthen the time for bathing one or two hours. From the Dubuque (Iowa) Herald. J Cuming Home to Die A Convict Dying Asserting His Innocence. Manv of our readers will remember that in the year 1804 the treasurer's safe of Bu chanan county was blown open and robbed of a large amount of money (120,000,) and that two young men, one named Itorobacher and the other Knight, were accused and con victed of the robbery and sent to the peni tentiary. After remaining in prison for sev eral years, both were pardoned by the Gov ernor, Rorobacher first and subsequently Knight. There was very much doubt in the minds of the people in the vicinity as to their guilt, and when Rorobacher was released antt 'leimued lu bis former home ho was received with quite an ovation liy.a largo number of the most respectable and intelligent citizens ol Jiueuanan and Black hawk counties. He has, since resided in Waterloo in comparative poverty, having expended his whole property, from $10,000 to $15,000 ij defending himself and Knight from tbe charge on which they w.re con vicicu. i ne pcopic oi independence were startled a little more than a week ago by the arrival oi ivnigut among tnem, ghastly, emaciated, dying. They remembered him a young man full of life, energy, hope aud spint, defending himself proudly and haughtily. : He returned a skeleton in body, broken in spirit, hopeless and dying. He came saying, "I am too weak and worn and weary for reproaches; but will Buchanan county give to the dying pauper a pillow and to the dead convict a coffin and a grave ?" Very many of the citizens called to see him, and none looked on the pale face and heard the dying lips protest his innocence without a feeling of awe and a shudder at the thought that would obtrude, that a terrific crime had been committed against the pitiful wreck before them. Dying pauper and pardoned convict though he was, death elaimcd him in a few days, and with his latest breath he asserted his innocence. He lies buried in the cemetery at Indepen dence now, and it is at least a happy thought that there h no fear of any unjust judgment in tho court to which he at last appealed. The Charleston Republican says: "The Republican State ticket will be nominated probably on the 20th of July next The candidates for Congress will probably be put in nomination within three or four weeks thereafter. This will open the cam paign throughout the entire State. And this is all we want, till toward the end of the campaign until at least the 1st ot Oc tober. For this there are the soundest of political reasons." .

Rev Mr. Fulton delivered a discourse at Trem t Temple, yesterday, moruing, upon the " essons drawn from the death of Cbarh Dickens," taking for his text the tenth i iapter of Hebrews and the thirty first vc ic--" It is a fearlul thing to" fall inlo the balls of the living God." In his in- troduc iry remarks, he said it was a qucs tion w ther a note of warning should not issue ! hid the Evangelical pulpit, and whttbi 'from recent events the drift of Evang ical Christianity was not against Christ. After referring to the many excel lent qu lities in Mr. Dickens, in bringing to ligh numerous evils, which made him almost universal favorite, Mr. Fulton said in relat m to his death : The feast at which he sat i asli8turbed by the shadow of God's hand, t an by a shadowy hand. Does it not bee me us to ponder the lesson taught ? The aul ior has gone to his reward, and we know n thing beyond this vale ; but who can fail to ask in the licht of a cnminr judgaient, how much greater would have been oar satisfaction had he devoted his nobler bowers to furthering the interests of UlBtCaasc OI Ills Lllvini MilRtnr It wna I 1ff$MkfSm&Mr "!ttie- ptfpftWf arribd! Mr. Dickens, thers have made tills death, and the honest treatment ot the event, ttr occasion for seeking to obtain popularlf&vor by claiming that the man was a Christian, and that Heaven was his home.' About this we arc not to argue. It is neither a duty bor a privilege to prove who are lost, ft is both a duty and a privilege to point tlie way to Jesus Christ, by whom alonu salvation is possible to men. If it is neither a duty nor a privilege to prove that . a mail judged by his life, died without hope, it is more than a mistake for any man who takes Christ's gosbel for authority tlind'to intimate that death frees a man from Ionian error, deliv ers lim from the bondage of sin, and per mits him to walk the realms of light The death of Christ for the sinner, not the death of tbe sinner, is the ground fur hope." In further remarks on this point, it was said that we were sure' that the judgement of God ttaccording to the truth against those who ciuimit ungodliness, and unrighteous ness, aid also that others were sure of it, else why was every infidel, anti-Christian Press so anxious to make Mr. Dickens a Chris tian t Their very zeal proved that all their mockery at Christianity was a delusion which never deluded tlicni. Many see that it is of the first, aye, if infinite importance that Mr. Dickens have something to support him after death other than his genius and fame. He stands naked before his God. With what is he clothed upon? Nothing wrought by himself will answer. The blood of-Chtist alone dcanseth from all sin. In his last note, written the day before his death, Mr. Dickens said : "I have always striven in my writings to express veneration for the life and lessons of" our Saviour." This is well. Did he rest his hope of salvation in the finished work of Christ ? This is the question of questions. Who can answer it ? All ought to bs able to answer it It was tbeautjot Charles Dickens to conies? tin 1st as much as it was the duty of Whitefield, or Judson" all of whom have been saved. Well and truly has it been said if lie accepted the offers ofialvation made to every poor sin ner, as some humbly hops he did, he was saved; if not not. God is not the slave of his creatures. A father is no more tender to ward a brilliant son than dull one. In the utterances of such truths it was claimed that thetoiinistcrs of Christ appreciate the excellencies of character of the great genius, and in the light of Scripture bewail the con dition of tin; great soul which chose fortune, fame, position, the applause of mankind, to the cross of Christ As a loan he lived and wrought for a certain purpose, lie was never a partisan nor a fanatic. He lived with an I ,!7 , i . n I ' V8' 4aBLuliavs ahaUMTeanJ eye ctfigle to a certain work, no said, "I true i4ttlre U contllbuta. as far as in me lies, 'to the common stock of healthful cheerfulness and cniovment I believe thaj virtue shows as well in rags and patches as she does in purple aud line linen. I believe that she and every beauti ful object in eternal nature claims some sym pathy in the breast of the poorest man who breaks his scanty loaf ot bread." That faith enoblcd and glorified his life. He has walked a path peculiarly his own. Empires have r:scn and fallen. Revolutions have rocked continents and shaken society to the very ceutrc, but he has paid little heed to them. Liberty was on the cross, and he turned his face away and paid her no devo tion. The hopes of freedom were clouded in America, the land that loved him most, but he heeded it not. He kept on his way. He wrought at his old task. He did his his work in such . a way that infidels, the intemperate, the profane, the lovers of pleasures, all tound in nun a lavonte. He was Ou tlie mountain peak of his eminence. His pen was still busy with a creation which was literally opened to tlie eye of all the world each week, and while there, in sight of all men, in the midst of his greatness, God took him. lie died aud gave no sign. The cause of his death is no mystery. As has been said : " He worked to hurd and lived too fast" We can read of his habits of life, temperate, and even abstinent, from brcak'ast to half an hour before dinner this was his working time. Four hours work and four hours a Geld nas the rule of his working life. Ho took brandy and seltzer before dinner, drank, as nearly everybody in England, sherry wine with his meals, and port at dessert ; sat long at table ; enjoyed his cigar; spent an hour in the drawing room at the conclusion of the evening, and then, returning to bis study, read, smoked, and sipped brandy and water till his bed time. Latterly, says one who knew him well, his habits became more confirmed. He drank more often. His liquors were of the choicest kinds ; and wines of rarest vintage were st.oreil in his cellar at Gad's Hill. Highly spiced beverages came to be liked, and he was vain of li is skill in compound ing them. , U was never drunk, but he enjoyed life. If any man was safe in indul gence, it was Charles Dickens ; yet indul gence in drink kijled him. 'Abstinence and rest might have given him two decades more of life. He tried these a year ago, and at that time staved off the thrcateued attack, but his old habits of lite aud work returned. More fuel was, required to keep up the flame. His thoughts came not to hint ns of yore. Love was dying out ; the wife of his bosom and the mother of his children lived apart from him because htS wife's" sister lived " too near hltn nnd shared too many of his thoughts. He had no religious support. He seldom, if ever, went to church, never kept himself sacred, never affiliated with religious people, but lived without hope in the world. He was conscious ol his needs. It is said that let ters to his wife evidenced it, though shes'iw him not when dead or when buried. It is a sad life and a mournful history. The lan guage of Rev. Mr. Mui ray, upon tbe death ot Dickens was quoted by 'Mr. Fulton, to this effect: "Farewell, gentle spirit. Tliou was not perfect until now. Thou didst have thy passions and thy share of human errors; but death hast freed thee. Now thou art no lnnsrer trammelled. Thou art delivered out of thy bondage and thy spirit walks in glory." J In commenting upon this, he said : " To keeD silence in tlie iace oi sucn an ut terancc is to deny Christ to make his death of no avail. Alas, that this should have been written.) The consequences none can foresee.! Let it go forth uncontradicted by the evangelical pulpit that death trees trom sin a tosition from which Rome shrinks and Unirersalism rejects, and by action if not by tpceeb, by silence if not by sound, I do my liart toward making sinful man lie- lievc tkit Heaven is the addenda of a life of pleasure, rather than a posicssmn secured by the Son of God. It is false in theory us in fact! As a tree falls so it lies, and every tree which bringeth forth not good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire." The remainder of the discourse was in the eu forcemeats of the truths set forth by Mr. Fulton; upon his duty to do so as a preacher, and upin the obligations of his hearers to embrace these truths as their only ground of saltion.! : '' A cetsus taker in New York who could speak jlie English language only, and whose district waB mainly inhabited by Germans, has abiadoned his job in disgust He says ii.

The song "Tramp, Tramp," was composed by a fellow who undertook to walk a hun dred miles in ten hours and lost his money.. . "Who Will Care for Mother Now," was the result of a young man getting to know more than his father and going far away from his paternal home. His mother man aged to get along. "Just Before the Battle, Mother," was written by an ambitious young man who thought he could, and was going to, lick Tom Allen, but he got one on the jaw which laid him out. His mother never replied to his poetry. "Bury Me in the Garden," was written by a young lady who was going to commit sui cide, but, suddenly remembering that there was no garden attached to her father's boarding-house, she concluded to go out and buy a new waterfall instead of dying. "Tommy, Don't Go," was su gested to the author by hearing a mother teasing Tom not to go to the circus that afternoon, offer ing to let him hold the baby all the time if he'd stay at home.

" Write Me a Letter from Home." This song was composed by a young man who went to Colorado to go into gold mining, and lailed, and he wanted the old man at home to send him some stamps to get back. " We Parted by the River Side." This really pathetic song was suggested by a young lady taking a seat on n drawbridge in Chicago to catch a last look of her lover, who was a scow sailor, and whose vessel was then being towed out into the harbor. He never returned, having got into a fight at Milwaukee, and being obliged to " get" for Canada. . " I'm Lonely To-night, Love." This was composed by a young fellow in Detroit who went hunting ducks upon the St Clair Flats, and, by the overturning of his bout, had to hang to a log all night. He wasn't as lonely as he tried to make her believe, as the niopquitocs made the time pretty lively, and a coal-barge cabin boy shot at him several times for a canvas back duck. " Fairy Forms Are Past Me Flitting." The The writer of this song was engaged to a lovely and estimable young lady, whose only fault was that she weighed two hundred pounds, aud had a pug nose and red hair. The boys poked fun at him so that he broke off the engagement, and one evening she kept walking back and forward bclorc his boarding house, wishing to get hands on him for just two minutes.

Price, "He tottered to tho house (says flic St Catherine Times) aud died in a few moments, ne leavi s a widow and four children. A party of the dead man's friends or relatives then assembled, and a sort of free fight took place with the opposite fiction. The result was that an other colored man named Burke, attached to tho Davis party, Was so badly stabbed that he is not expected to recover, and sev eral of the combatants received flesh wounds. Young Davis was promptly arrested, aud a coroner's inquest is now in progress. Mr. Saul Davis came to St. Catherines this (Sat urday) morning and scenred tho services of a lawyer to watch Ihc proceeding on he a'f of his son."

The lightning first struck the wires at some distance, follwtd it to the end, entered Lovell's hand, splitting three ot Ins fingers ; followed up Ins arm, and thence down his breast and side to the knee, which was on the ground, where it left the leg, breaking through the flesh and skin, leaving a blackened hole like that caused by a bu. let Tho lightning entered the ground under the knee, tearing a hole through the sod as it entered. Lovell was knocked over M jiountileMSL i.ut soon recovered, and., strange to say, received no permanent injury, re suming his work again in a short time. He says he felt all the stronger and better for the electrical shock. The sensation caused by the passage of lightning through his system he describes as very peculiar -very much like the sharp' pricking of pins particularly When the mysterious element entered and left tbe body. Scientific men can add this to their list, or extraordinary cases." . A Slother's Expiation A Tale of Murder and Suicide. One day last week a dog that had been prowling about in a neighborhood in the southwestern portion of Henderson county, Tennessee, brought up the lower half of a white infants body. One ot the child s feet was gone, and looked as if it had been eaten off. The citizens were greatly shocked and incensed when tbe discovery was made known. A meeting was held and opinions interchanged, but no facts were elicited pointing to the author of the infanticide. Suspicions strongly rested, however, on a woman in the neighbor!: d, who is believed to be the murderer and unnatural mother ol the child. An inquest was held and information ob tained which led to tne issuing of a warrant lor the arrest, of Miss Susan Yocs, charged with the guilt of child murder. The young woman, aged about twenty-four years, wcji working in a cotton field when information reached her that the warrant had been is sued Dropping the hoc she went to the well on the premises of Mr. Benjamin Rhodes, about four hundred yards distant, and plunging headlong into the ubyss, was drowned. The well was twenty-six feet to the water, with ten feet of water at tho bottom. Col. Titus, a well known Kansas borjeis rufflan, was lately tortured to death bj In dians in Arizona, More Copy.

Iu a space of two leagues the surface of the tart h undulated slowly and great chasms and deep circular excavations were opened. A new lagoon was formed, and between the shore and the sua there ap peared a large sized hill. During all this fearful commotion, the hills along the cost were observed to lie in a state of unrest, and large land slides took place, carrying with them rocks and trees. For lour days this agitation continued, the undulation being from west to east The precise date of these phenomena is not giv en, but they must have taken place early in the month of March .

We have some curious ktntistics from a French author writing mi cotcmpornry wars, as to what it costs to kill a man. tic lakes the whole expenditure of money lor each war and divides that by tin: number of men killed on the field, or whose death was ow ing directly to the war. In the Crimean war, where many were congregated in close quarters, he estimates that 750,000 were kit led at the cost of $3,105 per man. Pulling the deaths in our late war at 281,000. winch is rather a low estimate, each death was pur chased at a cost of $1G,7Z.. In tbe late Mexican ami South American wars the ex pense for killing a man was $4,500. Iu the Danish war 3.500 lives were lost at an aver age of $10,000. In the Austro-Prussian cam paign of 180G, winch end ;ii at Sailowa. $7. 500 was the price per deaih.
