Your soul aliould fly homeward in sleep t Little Corporal. Little Corporal. Selected Miscellany. A TUNNEL ADVENTURE. Some years ago, I waa stationed in one of our chief, manufacturing towns as su pcriutonilent1 in the office of a certain telegraph company.- This office contained the smallest arcouht of space In -which it was possible to rry on tho Work.- . The greater portion of it was dedicated to the public ; and all that remained for an instrument-room was a littlo slice cut off from the main office by a wooden parti tion. In this den, about a dozen of us were doomed to spend tho best part of every day in an atmosphere vitiated by tho gas which was kept continually burn ing. Underneath this office was a sort of iuternal region into -which our messengers descended. These batteries -were under tho chargo of our linesman a man who deserves a special word of description. Jacob Voosh was his name, and ho was a tall, broad-shouldered fellow, with a shock head of red hair, and a closely-cut and flcry beard. Judging from a long in tercourse with him, I should say that his chief characteristics were a love of his trade, a detestation oi telegraph clerks in general, and an inordinate fondness for bitter ale. Of these, peculiarities, the last was decidodly the most prominent, and sometimes influenced the other two. When, after a long sitting and it took a f;reat deal to affect him his favorite iquor reached his head, it effectually banished all considerations of work untd sober moments should arrive, and roused his rancour against the office clerks until it touml vent in tlic most uncomplimentary terms, lie hail originally been a carncn ter, but had by some means picked up a store of information about telegraph in struments, and had drifted into the post of linesman in our : company. Jits duties were multifarious, for he was considered responsible for the efficient working oi all the apparatus. Cut upon the whole, the job was an easy one, and frequently slight inspection in tho morning, and an evening call to see that all was right, con stituted his entire day's work. Tho iCngthy interval between morning and evening Jacob religiously spent in a dingy little public house, near the office, where ho was within reach in case of an emer gency, and where the tap was exceptional ly good.' occasional emergencies aid 00 cur. Lightning magnetised all the instrn incuts and made them for the time useless, or a storm blew down a score of posts. and broke tho wires. Then Jacob Voosh showed himself cnual to the catastrophe, He hired 'subordinates, he slaved day and night, he toiled like a Hercules, and then, when lm lin.il tut fivorvthinir rio-liL he re- turned to his cornor in tho public hoase to comDensate his exertions bv increased draughts of foaming alo. I havo said that ho was fond of his work ; but there was one part of it he did not liko. One of tho northern railway companies allowed us carry our wires a certain distance along their posts, and we, in return, agreed keep their telegraphic communications perfect Thia duty, of course, fell to tho lot of Jacob ; but his experience of rail way olucials was such tnat no would rather do anything than encounter them, and invariably returned with a brighter face than he had worn whon he started 8omo of. his expeditions along tho line. Railway men, from porters to managers, shared his vocabulary of vituperation with telegraph clerks; and silver-laced uniforms of the Northshiro Railway Com pany roused him as a red rag does a. mad bull. " An ill-conditioned, drunken you say. Exactly so; but a good workman, ana thai suited us. -,,., Ono August cveuing, this worthy pre sented himself before mo in a state bcerv excitement and having been formed' that there was no need for services, departed evidently bent on a He had scarcely gone when of our wires' ceased working; but es day's business was dono, and wo had wire communicating with the samo station, I did not thiuk it worth while sending after hint, but left him to find the fault in the morning.

Snatching up my hat, I ran with npecd to the dingy public-houso Jacob Vooeh made his headquarters ; Micro sure enough I found him In lhiddlo of a group of his cronies, bawling forth a drinking-song, and waving a above his head, in tipsy illusVation his lav. " Come, come," I said, " Uiis won't Jacob. Tho railway tunnel wire , broken, and you must go at once nieud it." Jocbii Voosh, put down his pewter, stretched out his lega,. thrust lii deep into his pockets, and with great answered: Blest if I Shan't stir this night." ... . "Nonsense," I replied crustily and " It must bo done, and must do it. Bo come along. - " I tell you," retorted Jacob with gravity ami emphasis than before, " I go. It's after working-hours. If it been any of our wires, I'd have" gone that Infernal railway company x& breaking soiaethiu'; and up their dangerous tunnel I don't go to-night'- can tell them that from ma, If you like." I did not insist iurtner, tor 1 saw that niiin wua mora than half drunk, and lectly lucapabia of doing Uio work quired. So UiBtoud oi. sejuuig uie his message, I prepared to mysell.

Tho loathsome brutes, used to, tho Uiundering rush of locomo tives, treated me with contemptuous curi osity. A damp and cliilly wind blew through the tunnel, and to add to my troubles, tho permanent way was under repair. Tho shinglo had been thrown out from between tho sleepers, and lay iu loose heaps in the six-foot space, rendering walk ing Uiillcut nnd slow. Still I plodded on, and at length found what I had so long and diligently sought. A sickening wretched loneliness crept over me, sometimes leaving me for a lit tlo while, and then returning with re doubled power. I tried to drive it away and bo hopeful ; but as I mechanically miffed at . mv nine, a scries of ghostly figures possessed my imagination in spite of invselt I saw mv two night-clerks swiftly writing as tho instrument clicked off the messages. I beheld Jacob Voosh draughts from his pewter, and rapidly ad- " vanctng towards senseless drunkenness ; I K niotre7l mv f:illipr reading and rest ngbv his great country fireside alter the labours of tho day, and I followed my punchy landlady as she moved about grumbling at my delay. But I was only Interested in them in as far as they were connected with myself.

Then my brain conjured up another set of phan toms. I beheld tho station platform, on which Mto officials paced up and down wondering at mv stay. I saw tho south .moil Btandiug. in, tho station tha steam hissing from the engine, Uie men waiting for the signal to Btart, and the passengers thrusting tlieir beads out oi tne windows and grumbling at their detention. I watched the gathering of tho search-party. I contemplated it as it set out, and . I almost fancied that I heard the shouts of men as they traveled the road I had already come when a sound broko upon me which filled me with an awful fear. Slowly at first, and then more quickly, tho wire ropes began to run over tho grooved guiding-wheels, and as I heard them clane in narrow sockets, I knew that I had been forgotten, and that tho traffic was resnmed. Instinctively I tarnod to ilee but where I This horrible tunnel, which seemed likely to bo my grave; ' had none of the little retreats so common as those in modern days, or if it had I; had not noticed them, and could never find them bv groping iu darkness. Were I to wcro in face and an.iv tl.n anu th ' - .1. ., vuuii cab, me, as he for vow tir movo In search of a refuge I would most i likely be caught and killed by the rusty rope which was rushing over tho wheels with tho speed of Uie wind. , My one poor chance of salety consisted in remaining whero I was until the train passed, and then making my way forward when the tunnel should again bo empty. So I sat down to wait. . Brought to a sore extremity by tlic de bauchery of a drunken fool alone in tho darkness with . Death, whilo tho young blood was coursing through Uie veins aud life was sweet would you not have cursed the cause of your misfortune and prayed to bo saved from such an awful fate t ' I madly did both, heedless of the contradic tion between them. But tho danger was drawing near, and I braced myself up to meet it. I heard railway men say that Uie safer plan was to turn tho free and not the back to a passing train ; so I now eagerly peered into the darkness to discern the first approach of the coming peril. Far in Uie gloom through which I had come I thought I ww a speck of light, fancied myself mistaken, when on turning -my head the other way I beheld a bright and increasing light in tho distance Oace more I looked stationwaroa, ana lounu to my horror that I had not deceived myself, fpr Uie light in that direction had grown till and clear. , A train was coming cither way, and au hope left ma .

Doth de mand that tho uovornmcnt DC atimmistoreu with economy and honeRty, and that the taxes bo equalized and reduced ; and the Uemocraiiu piattorm also judiciously sug gest a " simplification of Uio system and discontinuance of inquisitorial modes of assessing and collecting the Internal reve nue." Both claim for the naturalized citi zen equal rights and protection with the native citizen, and tho Republican Con vention also extends Its hands to "op pressed people, struggling for tholr rights" and urges the encouragement of foreign immigration. Tho Democracy threw a few words to tho soldiers and sailors In a sentence that looks liko an afterthought ; but tho Republicans in their 10th resolu tion earnestly express tho thanks of the country to its gallant defenders aud declare that tho bounties and pensions to which they and theirs aro entitled aro obligations novor to be forgotten." We havo already commented upon the positions of tho two parties on financial questions. The Republican platform un equivocally pronounces against repudia tion in every form, declares that the national debt must bo paid according to the letter and spirit of tho laws under which it was contracted ; that it should extended over a fair period for redemp tion and tho rate of interest upon it re duced, whenever that can honestly bo rinnnt nnd thnt thn liest wav to diminish our burden of debt is to lmprovo our credit. Tho Democratic platform Is con strued by tho accredited organ of the party ono-way In Chicago and tho oppo site way in licw York. It would proba bly receive, au interpretation consistent with the national honor from Seymour as President : but Blair, in tho event of his succession, would be likely to adopt Uio Pendleton construction. On o uost ions connected with tho restor. ation of the rebel Suites to their practical relations with tho Union, tho Democracy demand : ' I. immediate restoration of all tho States to their rights in tha I'nlou, nuder tne l ousiiiuuou, nit nt civil iroverniiieiit to Iho American itoonle. ". Amnealy for all past political offences and tne regulation oi tne elective iraucuini iu uio Slates by their citizens." Tho first demand is already complied with, except in three States, whoso return to tho Union is retarded by their own fault. Tho first part of tho second do mand has already been very generally rrrnntcd. and tho second part is tho enun ciation of n principle tho Justice of which tho Republican Convention acknowledged in its application to tho loyal States, but which tho necessities of tho case reciulred thorn, as tho constitutional nuthority given by the result of tho war enabled them, to set aside in the rcoci atatcs. ine ncpuu lican platform, on the other hand, adopt! the policy which is rapidly bringing back the truant ntatos, anu welcomes tneir in habitants, black and white .into " tho com nninlon of the loyal people."

Nevertheless, it always uap nens that when they have accomplished their career, or have becomo corrupt by long possession of power, they die, and givo place to purer ana moro vigorous or. ionizations. Sometimes parties commit such great crimes that tuo common justice oi man kind will not permit them to survive, They are sent off like condemned criminals to a death irom wnicn mere is no reprieve. The Tories of tho RovoluUon generally left the country at the close of tho war which they constantly opposed, inoso who remained had neither numbers nor courage sufficient to form even the nucleus Those political parties which havo op posed the wars waged by tho nation havo invariably come to a speedy death. The old Federal party disappeared soon after tho successful issue of our second war with Great Britain. The Whig party did not long survive the close of the Mexican wnr. widt h it had ODcloscd. It was. indeed, galvanized with a temporary semblance of a life by the election ot the hero of Buena e responsibility of the rebellion. Vista, whom it had tho shrewdness to nominate. None of these dead parties of the past ever committed tho crime of treason against the country. The policy of waging tho wars which they opposed was an open question, and one on which parties might honestly and patriotically differ. Those who fought against tho nation in our late civil war were traitors; and those in tho North who aided and abetted them were partakers in their guilt. The rebels of the South and the Copperhoada in the North belonged to tho Democratic party, and still propose to bear the name. If any of the reliols were known by any other political namo before the war, they turned up at its close most zealous "Dem ocrats." Upon Uie Democratic party, then, rests Aba guilt is theirs, and they tune tno oonsc- (.uences of its defeat, aji history, all analogy, all reason, and ttn justice now say that the Democratic l onrfw must ate.
