At last he came to a white cravated, black coated, demnre-looking individual. ‘ Sir,’ said he, ‘ who do you vote for?’ ‘ NIy friend,’ answered the saiutlv person age. * 1 go for Jesus Christ.’ The Buchanier looked over his paper — ‘ Sir,'said lie, there is no such candidate run ning.

It cannot be denied that in his candidacy, Know Notliiiigism has had a full, fair, impartial trial before the pop ular tribunal, lie was a man of unblemish ed private reputation, of fair talents, and of a Presidential antecedence without blame. While yet a Whig, adhering to the unadul terated policy of that old party, he had been raised by flattering majorities to the second office in the gift of the American people. A Sn mu' t h t The , i it • correspon dent of the New York Mirror, ' Belle Brit tan,’closes a letter from Newport, by telling an anecdote of a ‘ lady who was driving out with Charles Lamb near where some gentle men were bathing in puris natularibus, when Lamb remarked, after an aw kw ard silence, that ‘it was shameful for women to thus ex pose themselves.’ * Women,’ exclaimed the prude by his side, ‘ they are not ; they are mkn.’ ‘ Ah,’replied the gentle hearted Lamb, 1 / didn't vbserre.' ’ Tiik Sii.vnow on the Pii.i.ew. — The fol lowing is one of the most beautiful incidents connected with the Fastcrn War ‘A Highland soldier had his arm so se verely wounded that it was about to be am putated, when Mi.-s Nightengale requested the operation delayed, as she thought that under careful nursing the arm might be pre served. By her unremitting care this was accomplished, and the poor soldier, on be ing asked what he felt towards his preserv er, said that the only mode lie had of giving vent to his feelings, Was by kissing her shadow when it fell on his pillow, as she passed through the ward on her nightly v isit.’ Si’Kicn for Bt n'c ow hi-:. — J \//i w ('(‘initri/- men: W hen I open my eyes, uud look over the vast expanse of this country when I see how the yeast of freedom has caused it to rise in the scale of civilization and expand on every side- when I sec it glowing, swel ling, roaring like a spring freshet whose mu sic murmurs over perpetual power, which like a bounding cataract, daslic.- the encniic. of l niversal Freedom to the vortex below or sends them bounding down to the river Styx !

In speaking of the return home of Catharine Hayes, a correspondent of the Irish -Yeas says : Catharine Hayes has arrived in Liverpool. She returned to Ireland with a mountain of gold. If among the sand-hills of San Fran cisco, the Australian Alps and forest-, the temples and bazaar’s of India, she has left many a noble note, which, long echoing, will perpetuate her name among the people ol the '■ climes and cities, she has taken away with her from out of them that which will make her Irish home of light, luxury and splendor. A i.aiiY who hurl on her upper lip some thing approaching a moustache, lately call ed on an ofiicer and his wife, w hose laughing, merry little boy happened to be present at the time. In the course of conversation the little fellow inquired what he must do to get hair on his lip. ‘ Why, rub it against pa pa’s,’ was the reply. ‘ Oh, mamma, i» that the way Miss has got hers !’ Fi.atterinvj Chii.prks.—‘ Isn’t she pretty? Isn't she sweet ? What eyes slie lms! llovv graceful she is V Oh, foolish woman ! do you see the child drink in all that Battery through eves and cars? It may be years distilling',' but it will come out at last, una dulterated vanity. A child is not marble, or wood ; it is not like the senseless stone, l.nt the ductile wax. Warm it by the breath of undue praise and you mti£ impress it indelibly with your thoughtless adulation. But nil ! it remains not wax, but with grow ing years hardens and too often turns to ad amant. Then the caution is vatu —your lightest rebukes are sermons then your kind admonitions listened to with angry eve and Hushing cheek. Your beauty is too vain to spoil her pretty fingers, and you may drudge at vour daily toil without pity and without help We would not teach a child to undervalue beauty—we would sav as little about it ns possible, and caution our friends to do the same. The example of that mother who cut oil’ the rich curls of her darling because everybody said how graceful and glossy they were, while the little girl whose straight hair v< xcd her, and whose little eyes tilled with tears at her sis ter’s taunts that she hadn't got any pretty curls, is to be warmly commended. She was looking to the future of that child, that even the mere possession of curls might render miserable, because they subjected her to the fascinating seductions of flattery. Few women, fond as the mother-love makes the mother-heart, would deliberately put a veto on her child’s good looks, for that reason, but rather foster and stimulate the one redeeming beauty, that visitors might find food for admiration, so pleasing to the maternal pride. Anil there are some weak mothers, we fear, weak in no other spots, but blind to all the failings of the handsome pet. I'neon seiously influenced by the bright, soft eyes, and the bewitchments of artless beauty, they show more favor to her than to the less en dowed with charms An affecting little anecdote of a homly but (she must have been) sweet and loving child, went the rounds of the papers some time ago. The prettier child was called‘pet’ the other, the neglected One day in the dimne , of evening, a little hand and a childish figure came in contact with the mother. ‘ Is that you, pet ?’ asked the voice- low and soft as music*. Sadly anil slow ly, with strange despond ency for si child’s sw eet voice came back the answer- 'No, inn, it is'nt pet -it's unh/ 1.’ ‘ Only 1 !’ We have wondered often it that mother, w ith u sob of anguish, -did not catch the poor plaintive little darling to her heart, and never, never again let it lo-e its well-earned place there. That answer would have haunted us like the ghost of some neg leeted duty. ‘Only 1 !’ What depth of humiliation that little creature must have fathomed, that she had learned to least to estimate herself ns i.ii/i/ ].’ Wo once heard something of this fai ill ism. It was very sail, flic speaker was a sweet-faced, intellectual girl, with a settled , look of sorrow, making her face perhaps even more interesting. ‘To this day,’she said, ‘ I have never been rid of the impression that 1 am too ugly to be loved. I used to bide w hen visitors came, they tensed me that 1 was not as beautiful us my si.steis. My punishment among my brothers was ‘oh, yon homely thing !’ They made rhymes on my course hair, my large month, and, (»nd forgive them, my parenfs laughed at what they called ehihbsh wit. Whether all these im pri -ions made me really disagreeable, or their love was only ‘ skin fleep, ’ as the say ing is, I do not know , but they almost ruined me. liven now, when religion convinces me how foolish these brooding regrets always are, and always will be, I euiuiol go with ease :11 any company, nor fancy I am tolcr ated, except out of pily. I know 1 am not absolutely homely indeed, my sister’s line teeth are broken, and her bloom all gone ; perhaps she does not look now even as w ell as I do. Hut this harsh treatment ha-fixed upon me a sensitiveness of which 1 mu oft n ashamed, but which I cannot shake off li makes my eves like magnifying glasses, and distorts my imaginution.’ Be careful, mothers, that ye lay not those things in after years to your ow n consciences. It is a dreadful mistake, which the wisdom born of regret cannot rectify. I’raise not the beautiful, nor neglect the plain ; but, above all, (latter not your children, lest they sting the band that adorns their beauty. Ki:iivi:d iiKii llmm.

Measured and wearily, Sad old bells from the St epic grey : Priests chanting lowly, Solemnly, slowiv l'asseth the corse from the portal to day. Prop* from the leaden clouds heavily fall Prippingly over the plume ami the pall, Murmur, old folk, as the train moves along • Happy the dead that the rain rainetli on.' Toll at the hour of prime, Matin and vesper chime, Loved old bells from the steeple high Polling, like holy waves, Over the lowly graves. Floating up. prayer tranght. into the sky. Solemn the lesson your lightest notes teach ; Stern is tlm preaching your iron tongues preach : Pinging in life from the hud to the bloom. Pinging the dead to their rest in the tomb. Peal out evermore Peal as ye pealed of yore, Uruve old bells, on each Subbath day, In sunshine and gladness, Through clouds and sadness, llridal and burial have passed away. Tell us life's pleasures w i 11 1 death tfe still rife ; Tell us that Death ever leadeth to Life ; Life is out* labor, and Death is our rest, If lmfipy the Living, the Dead are the blest. Docsticks hears n Popular Preacher. Things have cliati.! cil before my hair l timed gray with line amt piety, clergymed used tn take their texts from the llible, ami preach peace ami good will to men, women nml little girls Our old minister, whose Sunday's sermon chastised my Saturday's apple stealing, didn't take a gunpowder text, and, under aromatic sehtinpp's inspiration, preach ft Imwit/.cr and six-pounder sermon, Inning a sulmmrinc battery peroration, with a large invoice of revolvers and bowie-knives thrown in by way of rlietorieal grace, lie used to think his duty uas to keep his pim ple from war and strife, and teach helliger tmt humans not to pull oil' their coats for a free tight every time any body trod on their corns. I recently attended the performance of the liev Wood and Thumb r Sen rebel', who is renowned for his prolonged shrieks for free dom, disunion, free Kansas, runaway dar kies, Sharpe's ii||es, Imuie knives,hull-dogs, mill a lag muss generally lie preaches elec tioneering sermons, and it is said that he car ries his pockets lull of l''remont ballots, and makes his people take a vote on the Presi dential question every Sunday, to see that they are all 1 sound on the goo e ' It is al so asserted that he spends his leisure hours firing at the iron man in the shooting gal lery, ami ia throwing a tomahawk at a mark ; occasionally varying those delightful occupations by taking boxing lessons, learn ing how to 'geegc' .Missouri, taking long drinks ol aromatic schnapps between times. Wiul to the church, which was arranged like u theater, with the best place for those who pay the most money instead of a pul pit there was a stage for the ministers to pcrlorm on people came in droves seats were soon full - then a huge pyramid of stools in one corner was attacked by six en ergetic and determined sextons, who speedi ly tore it to pieces, and scattered the frag ments through the aisles for folks to sit on. Organist executed a grand Kansas battle piece in live sharps, with vocal imitations Of the shrieks of the settlers ami the curses of the border rullbins. Then t he minister mint* up through a trap door like the harlequin in the pantomime w lien the devil had got an iu vitation for him he prayed a long prayer in his overcoat then he took oil his over coat and read a hymn, a very quick metre, with a very strong chorus then sat down on Ids overcoat and read his letters. The organist hero made preparations to gyrate lie rolled up his coat sleeves m> as not to interfere with his lingers thru he rolled up his pantaloons so as not to inter fere with his toes, then he unbuttoned his cravat and loosened hi vest ; at th : instant a very muscular man (li ippeured i win the rank- in the gallery, vani-hid through a rub by-hole, am! was instantly lost in the unato my o| t Im organ. Then there was a great rattling in the bowels thereof, as if it coulil’ut digest the muscular man, but had a great deal of wind on its stomach. This was the preparation. Then the organist commenced a violent struggle with the key-board, as if he regard ed the unfortunate organ a.s a sticutf ene my, whom it would require his utmost strength and dexterity to overcome—so he went in lie hammered him on the white keys, he belted him on the black ones, lie punched him in the semitones, lie kicked him in the double lifts <, be put in a series of run ning kicks in his chionmtie scale, lie pelted him in the Hits, he battered him ih the sharps, lie -mote him in the high keys, he bit him in the low notes, then he grubbed both hands in his octaves and shook him un til he squealed , then he ferociously jerked out the stops on one side, as if lie was [Hill ing halt his teeth out ol his bead—then he savagely jammed in those on the other, as if he was knocking the rest of his grinders down his throat -after three quarters of an hour, the left hand, which had been doing mantul service in the lower suburbs, began to fail, and sent, for a reinforcement, where upon the right hand, after hitting the upper chord of (1 sharp a furious dig to keep in the interval, scampered to the rescue, only stopping by the w ay to bestow upon the mid dle C a couple of punches by way of a re minder—then the player with both hands, both feet, and liis knees, went at the poor instrument and belabored him so unmerci fully in the lower pipes that he lost his wind and eried— ‘ enough,’ in a roar of agonv. This was the prelude. Then the singing commenced ; (fit* opera • oiks stood up to earn theif money ; they sang as it the music scale had beeu greased on the occasion, and they were climbing for a pig on the top ot it ; they would go up a note or two ami then slip back—each one went one notch higher than the one bofore him, but fell back before he reached the j‘>me, and his voire subsided into a discon tented growl low down in the ribs. At last, after five trials, each one of which ended in an attenuated squeak, one female, with « month like a hatchway, loosened her bonnet strings, made a desperate scream, and went so high that she finally got a linn hold of the oleaginous reward of merit, and hire it "IV in triumph ; then they all stopped. This was the singing. Then the muscular man came out of the bowels with the perspiration dripping from his coat tails ; as he hadn’t another suit han dy, he sat dow n in the draught to dry. This was the finale. Here the minister rend a number of grat is a Uerli'emetits for concerts and twrtmty fivc cent picnics ; then there was another .sin gle-handed combat between the organist and his old enemy, and some more greaScif pig vocalization by the thousand-dollur choir, after which the ‘star ’ preacher began to perform in earnest; lie rend a text rind stuck to the subject for fifteen minutes, giving liirf bearers ' fits’ about their short comings when the plate is passed ; then lie gave a glowing description of the joys of I’arndise, and by his eloquent words got us so far into the spirit land that we Could almost hear the de parted spirits blow their noses, when stid drid v he cut short his high-down piety, and began to talk polities and general news. Hu spoke of the state of stock-markets, gave notice of a new patent Imllot box, a review of the encouraging prospects of Fremont, the value of Sharp’s lilies, and the retail price of Seherdaiii Schnapps. Then he gave with great gusto a delight ful inroiiiit of some Sanguinary pleasant transactions in Kansas, wherein a couple' of men were roasted alive in a burning lug t'nb in, while their wives were compelled bv the amiable border ruffians to Kutierintend their cOnkerr Then he made some viwv good jokes, at which the people laughed : then ho said something about tin' ‘ t nion ’ which they applauded I should have supposed my self in a ratification meeting if the men hadn’t all their hats oil', and there hadn't been so many women that their hats looked like a cherry orchard Soon he put in a word about ‘ Ibieham el’s ' and Murk lle publieiuiH ,’ 1 thought then 1 was in a polit ical meeting, sure, nfrd expected every min ute t i hear No. .Vs boys come down with three times three and u ‘tiger’ for ‘ Ruck and 1 truck.’ After this he grew more ff’iui-' tie about bleeding Kansas,’ and talked so earnestly about Sharpe’s lilies that 1 eon eluded he had an agency and got u percent age on all he old ; he didn't make any re marks abut Schnapps, and 1 didn’t hoc any bottles, though I suppose there must have been a sample handy lie had now got his ministerial steam almost up to exploding point, and raced round his little plulform us if he was crazy, and wanted to get at Home body He mixed up things-Christian love and piety ; Fremont Republican principles ; gunpowder us a moral agent, find medicated gin as a means of grace, niggers, slave whips, charity, brotherly affection, under ground railroad, disunion, lluwrrs, little chil dren, Voting, ballot-boxes, polls, White House, President ami Know Nothing, end ing tip with a loud exhortation for free soil, free .speech and Fremont, with a strong hint that he wanted them •« contribute pretty liberally when the deacon cumc round with the plates, as the money was needed to cir culate Republican documents in Penusylvv ilia, and New Jersey. This was tin 1 * preaching. Then he took a two minutes' rest, nmf made a prayer containing a summary of the political news of the Week ; then he put on his overcoat and disappeared through the trap door. The organist placed the people out with a grand march, in w liicli a trumpet solo was very conspicuous, and added a few dancing tones bv way of keeping Sunday schoolchil dren quiet. I went home trying to mentally digest the politico-religious hush I had listened to, at:d endeavored to decide whether there was too niiieli politics for the piety, or too little pie ty for the politics.
