With a sad he in I took the road
To see poor Frank interred ;
I trtit lis spirit's guie to G.'1.
t1 hire deat h no more is feure-1.
From there I weit unto the plhae,
Where tuy poor J:nies did lie :
Once intre to see litn in greet htste.
For he was like to die.
While tleath upon iny child did prey.
I st ood besile his b-a
And there remained hothi night autl day
Until his spirir fled.
Then to the graveyard we repaired.
With heavy grief And cry,
And there his body was i:.tered
They lie both sile by side.
My children gone. and I atn left
Tis a sad tale to tell.
Of those so dear I atn bereft
- Dear children, fare you well.
I hope to spend eternity
With them tm Heaven above
To Father, Son and Spirit-tirce
Sing his redeeming love.
How changed the scene l Poor William, dear,
Once more returns to imc
le conies. my droopitg heart to cheer
Once more his form I see.
From the far-west he comes awhile,
With parents fond atid dear
To us he did his dangers tell,
While he was coming here.
f Yet sal the thought, we soon must part
And give the parting hand ;
He for the battle-field most start,
To join his little band.
I've often prayed to God for him,
Who heard toy prayers and - ries,
If not on earth we meet again,
We'll tneet above the skies.
Alas ! alas ! poor William's gone,
.%s those who went before;
He was my last antd only son
I'll see him here no more.
31v heart was centred on that ch Id.
As you m:ty well suppose
With me friends gave sympathy
For death his eyes have closetd.
Through many a battle ie did go,
Unhurt for a great while ;
At length the enemy sent the blow
That slew my only child.
His grave I've often wished to see,
And there to shed a tear.
For it contains who was to me
An only child most dear.
This cruel war has me bereft
Of three brave, noble sons ;
They all are gone, and I am left
In sorrow here to mourn.
But why should I lamentand mourn
God took them for the best ;
And when He caled lie called His own,
I trust they are gone to rest.
I cannot stay behind them long
All nature must decay ;
I hope to meet the immortal throng.
Bright, bright, as the noon-day.
I have no ties to bind me here
-This world has lost its charmns;
I hope in Heaven to soon appear,
Embraced in Christ's dear arms.
I hope my children thtere to see,
Whom I on earth so loved;
And chant and sing eternally
With Him in heaven above.
Shed not a tear. my frienid, for me,
When Gotd has called mie home ;
Believe that I shall happy ht
Give Him the praise alone.
A tumble in the barometer is not
an unmixed blessing in New York.
It is true, it may help to keep our
political blood cooled in the midst of
this exceedingly exciting canvass but
it bringrs sorrow to our poor who are
not well provided at the best of times,
and whose pressing wants in the bit
ter winter days tax all of our charit
able resources.
We often read much of the selfish
ness and hard-heartedness of the
world, but I often think that the
world does not get quite credit
enough for the good it does.
Charity has a pretty hard road to
travel. In its path are all sorts of
frauds, swindlers and dead beats,
am not easily taken in. I have
been afloat on the great world since
early childhood. All the great cities
of my own country and the princi
pal capitals of the old world have
been no strangers to my wandering
feet. I thought I was up to all the
g oames by which the unwary are
taken in, and yet an old dead beat
laid me out as nicely last week as if
I had been feeding on vegetables
and milk all my life and was as green
as the grass that grows under my
feet. It was late at night and I was
passing Madison Square just above
the Fifth Avenue Hotel. I saw a
man leaning against the railing that
surrounds the Worth monument. I
had got close upon him when I heard
a deep groan and 'saw a man sink
upon the ground. I rushed to his as
sistan-ce and sat him upon the curb
stone and asked what was the mat
ter? In a voice so weak that I could
scarcely hear him, he faltered out "-I
have not tasted food for three das.
and he dropped forward heavily in
my arms. My heart was touched.
Where do you live, I asked? Alas !
alas ! he replied in a hollow sepul
Ichral tone, I have no home; every
door is shut against me; I'm starving
slowly to death. A great big lump
came into my throat, as big as an
Irish potato. What country do you
come from? England, he said, with
a faint cry as he fell forward in my
arms again. The tears were rolling
into my eyes. Here was a fellow
creature perishing in the streets for
food and I had just come out of the
Brtunswick full of good things. I had
Ifive dollars in my pocket and it had
been reserved to liquidate a small
debt for which my creditor was anx
iously waiting, but everything must;
give away to a starving fellow crea

ble man of large wealth, who is C
uite willing to be elected, but he will w
ot be, the fight lying between the
wo great Democratic factions- t

tands and somebody will get hurt
efore it is over. An immense amount

The budget this year is thirty
even millions of dollars, it has been

Yours Truly,
For the Herald and News. G
On the Ruff road, four miles from t
own, is the house of Dr. John C. t
lalfacre. This homestead has been
n the family for years. The first set.
lement of the Halfacres was west
rom the location of the family home,
p the eastern branch of Cannon
~reek, formerly known as Buzzard's
~ranch. The settlement was near a
alf a mile up the branch from where t
he Ruff road crosses the creek.
here were two or three very fine h
prings near which the signs of the
ld homestead could be seen. The
Lrst one of the family who settled
ere was named Henry, and was the
reat grand-father of the present own- r
r. Dr. Halfacre. He was of German.
amily, but whether the first of the
amily who immigrated to this coun-.
ry or not, we are unable to say, but
re are of the opinion he was the first j
f the name,who came to this country. o
for can we fix the date of his settle- o
ient on this place, but it must have a
een during the war of the Revolu
lon or soon thereafter. Mr. Halfacre
eems to have been a quiet, indus
eious, unassuming German who al- I
rays strove to have plenty around a,
im and something to sell. The Pro-.
ibition movement was not of much l
ower in politics, in those days. Half- g
cre put up and run two stills at the t
prings we speak of, as being near
Lie old home place, where the corn, f
each and apple were made to yield i
1any a gallon of the fluid once called t;
gua vae. No harm was thought of it
1 those days, and the sight of a sot
Lsh, whiskey-bloated, hog-wallowing
runkard was a rare thing, and a
ight never seen. The people had 1
ranger views in regard to this arti, g
le in those days; they did not wanE d
ny middle men. We never knew any h
f the children of the first settler of h
Lie Halfacre family. We can recol, l,
3ct of hearing of only two sons, the t
rand father of Dr. Halfacre, whose
ame was Henry, and a brother oft
is named Jacob. There may have
een same sisters, but we have not
eard of them, Henry came into pos- c
ession of the land, and about the
ime of his marriage or soon after, ti
uilt out on the Ruff road where Dr,~
lalfacre now lives. He married a
liss Suber, a sister of Big Jake Su- '
er, who was once well known to all
ur citizens. She was a good, mother
-. kind-hearted lady. Everybody
ked Granny Halfacre, she had un A
oubtedly the best lungs of any wo- d
~an we ever saw. She could be heard
a common conversation near a mile,
nd then vow she was not talking
ud, either. When the good lady
ied she had the barrel she had made e
er saur kraut in for over forty years, ri
nd the identical rock she had used y
o weigh or press down the kraut in
he barrel. It was the one used the c
rst time.
Henry Halfacre was a prudent,
areful farmer; he seems to have s
een a very precise and methodical I
aan in all his habits. He gave his r
ttention mostly to farming. ie:
uilt a store-house just across the
ublic road from his house and sold
;oods there for many years. Every
nody liked him and hand the ntmost 1:
seek a shelter at once and get some- e
thing to eat. He fell upon my c

All over the city are holes for 1
d1stttute boys anli asyI :ns ft>r frieni- s
less girls A lot of sIlf-constit .t(l c
sharks profess so be the aitners of
the public's charity. This is one of C
the mno -t 1 -pi::bl forms '!o humlna t
swi dling. Ca e after ease has been c
exposed. some of them lunished but
still this mercenary mode of plunder L
goes on. The wouen who Practice L
this piracy generally assume a sane- a
timonious air and expatiate ,. he i
beauty of charity, while they starve l:
and torture the wretched children d
whom they have inveigled into their s
dens. r
But it is pleasant to turn from those I
infamies to the many worthy chari t
ties with which our city is blest, e
among the very foremost of which r
are the various Catholic institutions s
of the city. The Catholic Protec v
tory, Father irumgool's school for c
boys, and many others belonging to 1
the same denomination. They draw
largely from the public treasury, but c
the question is between giving it to t
them Or devoting it to the building s
of prisons. II:re they are well ted.
well housed. well clad, well attended v
to morally, and physically and in- i
tellectually. To their honor, he it :
recorded, tl.ere are no complaints of :
starvation or ill-treatment among the c
wards of our Catholic institutions. t
Decency, good order, cleanliness. dis- <
cipline and excellent moral trailing t
characterize them and make them
models for similar institut:ors a
throughout the wor:d. t
The inst.tutio!s devoted to the
care of girls are all presided over by
Sisters of the different orders-sweet,
patient, cultured women, who serve
Heaven best by attending these poor
motherless. fatherless and homeless
waifs. t
Father Dlrumgool's school is filled I
with hoodlums, hundreds of whom i
have been picked of the streets, reg- t
ular Arabs. outcasts, and jshmnaels.f
Once within thle influence of this
worthy old p)riest they begin to rise.(
I think he likes to tackle tough cases I
just to see ho0w good a man he can
make of the most unpromising ma- t
But it must not be thought that ~
charity is con! med to the Catholics.~
Some of the l 'rotestant institutions1
are not surpassed in the world.
WVhile if 1 had the space I would E
willingly mIention the most promi- ~
nent; there is one which I cannot
pass without a word of praise and
Lhat is St. John's Guild. There are
many blessed charities in-our midst
but none more bless -d than St John's C
G-uild. It has the especial good for
:une to stand well with all classes.
~nd any person entrusting their alms
~o its charga knows they will be well ~
bestowed. With sympathies that ~
2ever fail it is still the most syste- t
natic of charities, and disbursing
many thousands of dollars in the
rear it is not often deceived. Though ~
2ominally belonging to the Episco- r
>al c: urch, it is by no means denom- ~
national in its charities. It is as
ready to relieve a Jew, or Turk, if t
;he case is worthy, as the most Ortho. r
iox believer. All through the sum
ner its labors among the children of
;he poor, and thousands upon thou-1
ands of them are carried to the sea
side and others are provided with C
2omeb; in fatct, it never wearies of ~
loing good. The Jews and Ger- 8
nans have spl:ndid charities. The C
Jews being particularly helpful.
But this weck we can think of
3othing but politics. On Tuesday
r'ammany pain'ed the towvn red.
Whatever people may think of the
