Hare you beard the poet tell How came tho dainty Ruble Bell Into this world of our 7 The gate of Heaven wore left ajar ! M'ith folded bauds and dreamy eyos, Wandering out of Paradiso, I She saw tbis planet, like a star, llungiu the purplo depths of even Its bildges running to aud fro, O'er which tho white winged angels go, Bearing the holy Dead of Heaven I Sho touched a bridge of flowers those foct, So light they did nut bend the U'lU Of the celestial asphodels ! They fell like dow upon the flowers, Aud all the air grew strangoly swoot, Aud tbua cunt Juiuty B'ltiq LU . Luw tbis worm or oura. II She came and brought delicious May, Tko swallows built beneath tho cures, Liko sunlight in and nut the leaves, The robins vvul tho livelong day, l tio Bliy swung ils ueitelt bf-ll, Aud o'er t'ao porch the trembling vino Sermod burst:ng with ils voin of wiuo. Oh, eaitii was full of pleasant sinell, 1 belt camo tho dainty BaLio Boil Into this world ours. Ill OBabio, dainty KuMe Bell! llow fair bhe grew from day to day, What wuuiiiu nature filled her ryes, What (Kictry within them lay, Those deep and tender twilight cjes. So full of meaning, puro mid bright As if she yet stood in the lijlit Of llioso open gates of Paradise. Aud vi loved liable uioro aud moro, O never in our hearts bcfoiy Such holy love was born. Wo felt we had a link between This real world aud th.it unseen The land beyond the Moru I Aud for the lovuof those dear eyes For love of her w hom God lod foith, (1 be mother's being ceased ou oerth When Babie came from Paradise.) For love of him who smote our lives. And woke the chords of joy and pain, , We said 4'Swctt Christ!" our hearts tent dotvn Like violets arm in. XV . Aad now the orchards which were euee All white and rosy in their bloom Filling the crystal vein ef air With gentle pulses of ieifume Wero rich in Autumn's mellow prime. The plums were globe of honeyed wine The hived sweets of summer time ! The ivory chestnut burst lu shell, The soft-checked poaches blushed and fell; And time wrought Jiwt as ika a change In little Babie BolL Her tiny form more perfect grew, And in hor features wo could trace, In softened curves, her mother's face Her angel nature ripued too. Wo thought her lovely when she came, But sho was holy, saintly now Around her pale, angelio brow We saw a slcuder ring ol fame. God's hand LaJ taken eWay the seal Which held tho portals of her speech, Aud oft she said a few stratige words lu,.u imiiiiiioM liw litfittiitil f.ur r -1 mmm Wf.fTT.S WT IITOI lO 11", We never held hor being's key, We could not tcaih her holy thing, Sho s Christ's self in purity. VI It camo upon us by degrees, Wo saw its shadow o'er it fell, The kuowledgethat our lod bad sent His messenger for Bubie Bell ! We shuddered with uiiUnguugoJ pain, And all our bopos were changed to fears And all our thoughts ran into tears, Like sunshino into dutnia! rain; Aloud wo cried in our be lief, "0, smite us guutly, gently, flod! Teach us to bcud aud kiss the rod, Aud pei feet grow through grief." Ah, bow we loved her, Uod eau tell, Her liltlo heart was casod in ours, Our hearts are broken, Bubie Bell. VII At last Lo came, tho mus.cngcr, The messenger from unseen lands And what did dainty Babie Bell 7 Sho only crocstd Lor little hands. She looked more uioek and fair, Wo parted back her silken hair, Wo laid soiuo buds uion bur brow, White buds liko scented flakes of snow 1 'oath's brido arrayed In flowers; And thus went daiuty Babie Bull Out of this world of ours. AN APPEAL TO HEAVEN. A ktoiiv op riosr.Ktt life. Lato in tho Fall of lS.'lO, Grand Prairie, in Illinois, was burned over ono night, and an inimcnsoamount of damngo dono to tho farmers living in and along its edge. Numerous fences wero destroyod, and crops of corn ready for tho gathering, wero laid waste-: whilo numberless stacks of grain and hay put up for tho winter's use, were set on fire, and burned to tho ground. Tho havoo was woreo because of tho conllngration s coming suddenly and tjuito unexpectedly, as when the niiiht camo on no fire was discernablo, and such burnings wero invariably pcrccivablo long before night 6ct in, warning tho farmers to bo prepared. Uut tho evening of this catastrophe, whon tho sun went down . I.. nuu uarunoss coverou mo prairie, no fcnioko aroso from tho Southern edge of the plain, nor could any lurid fjlaro oe soon resting upon uio sxy, 10 mui cato the grass was on fire and as it generally took a wholo night for tho ilamcs to cross tho prairio, all tho farmers living on tho Northern odgo retired to their beds in apparont secu rity. But in tho middle of tho night many of them wero aroused to iind their fences on Fire, thoir habitations surrounded by flames, and in somo instances, oven tho houses in a bright blaze, from which they with dilliculty escaped alive. A fanner, whoso fam ily was composod of a wife and only daughter, tho latter sorao soventcen years of ago, who resided some six miles in tho prairio, had his houso destroyed whilo himself and wife per ished in tho ruins. The daughter was saved by tho daring energies of a young man named Clyde, who had discovered tho lire, and arrived just in time to tear her from tho building ero tho roof fell in. Tho morning after tho conthigratlon, tho inhabitants of tho little village of Uluffton, (situated on tho edge oi tho plain, wero set in commotion by ru mors of the firo being tho work of somo heartless scoundrel, who had thus gratified his malice upon oine individual, by injuring tho tmtiro com munity. Tho rumors at length bo came a fixod fact: n, about ten o'clock, a man named Gray, a roving charac ter, with no ostensible menus of live lihood, appeared beforo the Sipiiro of tho villa0, and stated that ho wished a warrant issued lor tho apprehension ol xiavia Clyde, ler sotting tho praino on mo uio previous evening, by wiweu bo mucli M asto of property, and wan ton 6iU':-iiico oi lives had occurod, Tho warrant was issued, and plaeod in mo lianas ot tho constable lor torv ing; and while this oHlcial was abiont in watch of Clyde tho young nuin himself ennio into tho Squire oluco, and entortxl a like complaint against Uray, but was informed that Uray had firt appeared, and obtained a warrant lor his, arrest, winch was then in the nanus ol tno constable. Ho seemed takon aback whon ho was mst informed of this', but iirom ising the Squire ho would bo prosont at ono o'clock that attornoon, to un dorgonn ox un-jiation, ho departed. oru ta uray to do iircscnt at lue Hjiiitcil tnno ; and as tho cano was at uu usual ouo, tlio room of tho Justice v. as crowded to hear tho state ment) of tho two. fit ray's Btory was short. lie swore thut, having a wolf-trap set so uio Uiat.'ineu out in tho prairie. ho hai taken up hiu lodgings near by it tho night of the Cro, and about twelve o'clock ho was aroused by tho liowb and unaiU of a wolf, which had been caught in tho trap, llo arose to go to it, . when ho discovered a horsi'man ju ftr by, who dismounted from hi.i htotxl, drew out a steel, Hint and tinder from his ypeket, and strik ing a light thrust it in tho dry grass, which imtautU' blazed up, and lavor- ed by a strong Southern wind, npod away towards tho settlement, and in tho exact direction of Mr. Fieher's house. That tho horseman, whom ho recognised as Mr. Clyde, then mount ed his horse, and rodo away. his statoiiiout had been listened to with breathless attention, and as Grav dolivon-d U 1 apparently iu a cool ana' truthful manner, it had considerable woight upon David Clyde. Tho fea tures of tho ycuug man were as calm as ever and his countenance under wout no change during tho recital of Gray. When tho latter was dono ho arose to his feet, and exclaimed: " " My statement of tho facts as thoy occurred uion tho eveninir of that most deplorable fire, will bo much more minuto than that of my accuser, and will occupy moro time ; but I hopo that not only tho Justice but the audi ence also, will listen patiently to what 1 have to say. It is well known to many hero that 1 have a brother re siding iu Walnut Grove, and upon tho night of tho Cro I was returning irom a visit to him. U lien about ten Ulilf tho othor side of Mr. Fisher's, a man a short distum o ahead of me, kneeling by tho road side, and appar ently endeavoring to light a liro with a steel and tinder. 1 started my liorso into a gallop, nt tho samo instunt giv ing a shout, and tho man sprung to his feet, but dropped a burning lock of grass, as ho did so, into tho prai rie, tho dry hay of which was instant ly in a blaze. "Scoundrel!' I exclaimed in a lotid voice, n I camo closo to him ; but with a coarso ha, ha, ha, ho re torted 4,1 Don't bo angry, Mr. Clyde, for gotting mail won't fctop tho lire. I guess old Fibhor '11 catch it to night, and his haughty daughter, too." "'Villain, you shall answer for this,' I replied, as I turned my steed, and spurral him aftor tho rolling flames, which wero sweeping swiftly away beforo a strong South wind, and rolling on in tho direction of Fishor's house. In vniu I urged my horso to his utmost speed, for the cracking firo sped far ahead of me, and when over a mild and a-half distant, I beheld tho lurid blazo leap tho fence liko a sng hound, and go careering towards tho house. Almost maddened at tho bight, I goaded on my gallant hon?o, who bounded forward liko tho wind, but when still half a mile from tho building, I saw n bvightVnect of tlames ariso from -tho roof, and became nwaro that the houso was on lire. Tho burn ing prairio had made it light as day, but my eyo ran in vniu around tho premises to discover a single person and tho fearful thought camo to piy mind that tho family wero asleep in tho houso. Dy tho tinto I reached the door iu front of tho mansion, tho roof was iu lurid glare, and leaping from my stood, 1 let him go, and throwing my wholo forco against tho door, burst it in. A denso volumo of smoke poured out, almobt sufioentiDg mo for a moment, but regaining my breath, I ascended tho steps to tho socond story, A door was visible up on my right hand as I reached the top, aud it required all my weight to break it in ; but w hen I did so, a fe male form staggered forWurd, and fell in my anus. I hastily bore her down tho stairs, by this tinio covered with cinders from tho burning roof, aud as I leaped from the door it fwll in with a tcrriblo crash, showering tho sparks thickly around mo. ' Tho person 1 had rescued was Mary Fisher ; and the old man and his wife perished in tho flames. My liorso had fled in alarm from tho spot, and ns tho nearest neighbor's was four miles distant, wo wero compelled to walk it on foot Day broko by tho timo wo reached tho house, ami leaving tho disconso late girl at her neighbor's, I camo im mediately here, but found I was a few minutes too lato to lay my accusation before you first. Such are tho facts in tho case; although they are alimist exactly opposite to tho statement mado by Gray.' Clyde had delivered his story iu an impressive nnd convincing manner, but tho Justice was puzzled which of tho two ho should believe. The ad vantage lav with Gray, as ho had made tho first accusation, nnd tho statement ofClvdo mirht be only a tale invented to upset the evidence of his net-user. Neither had proof, as j and a protective tarm. loeso are my no ono saw the dei-d, end tho Squiro ; sentiments and political principles. in formed thorn that he knew of no j If elected 1 will o thankful. If not vuy tj depose the .ioe itii.nvdiateh--, i i.. .:'.! th. si.i. unless ho bouud them both over to tho Court. To this, Gray strencusly objected. Ho had appeared and accused Clydo, ho said that tho real author of tho lato catastrophu might bo justly pun ishod, and ho thought that to bind them both over, would have an cli'ect in deterring others from making any accusations against malefactors Iroin their own kuowlodgo, unlc3.i they hud TMjsitivo proof of their truut. Ho do manded that Clydo should bo held to bail, and not himself. , When ho finishod, Clydo onco moro got up, and turning to tho Justice, stilted that aa they both (stood there without witnesses, and consequently it ma not lay in his power to tell tho guilty one, with his pcrmisoion, and tho consout of Mr. (J ray, ho would X'ropoee a plnn by which ho hoped tho matter would bo thoroughly settled it was this: it rt'l. ' ... . A.iero is an lniimto ismr. sir. who rules in a higher sphere than ours, and to whom all tilings aro known, from whom nothing can bo concealed.. I proposo to Mr. Gray, tiuit wo both mako an npponl to Heaven, and let tho God of the uui verso decido upon our guilt or inno cence. 1 leel that I, Mr, am not a malefactor here, and I challenge my accuser in tho presence of this evi dence, to accept my proposition. Llyilo ceased pueakiug, and umid nn utter stillness, during which ho be came tho centra ot all eyes, Gray uLo aroso, and replied : "i will" consent to' do any tiling L,.!. t. l,.- : :...i. " I can seo no objection to Mr. Clyde's oiler, although I do not iup- poso tho case will bo materially alter ed by it, said tho Justice. " Ihen let him go on, and I will follow suit," brazenly answerod Gray. - fMowly mvui mydo ion upon ti cd knees, and raising his face aud arms towards Ileaveu, uttered umid the most death-liko silence, tho follow ing appeal: " Jiterual Uemg, thou who soeth and knowestall things, aud who only enn tell the guilt of us two, into Thy hands I commit my innocence, and beseech Thee, Almighty God, if 1 am guilty of tho crime of which I am ac cused, to strike mo dead in tho midst of this then most blasphemous ap peal." ior full a moment after ho had hn- ished, Clydo remained upon his knees, then rose to his feet, and with folded arms, gazed slowly around him. Tho countenance of Gray had paled during tho prayer ot Clydo, but as every eyo was upon him, ho nerved himself to with a loud aud hurried voice, ho ro peateU tho appeal, moveu lorwam, but when ho cumo to tho words, "Al mighty God, if I am guilty of tho crinio of which I am accused, to strike mo dead," his face becanio moro whito and ho fell slowly forward.

"Whatevev may bo tho military re sult of tho war, and whatever tho re lation, if any, which may bo estab lished 'through its agency, between tho North and South, nothing is moro certain thau this: that neither will the Union, ns it was bo restored, nor will the political or social conditions of tho North bo what they wero before it began.

It is true that, owing to tho loss of several of the States by very close votes, General MeClellan has a small double thobO cast fur Stephen X. Douglas, in I860. Douglas received 12 electoral votes, and MeClellan 21 votes. This is, however, no indica tion of his popular strength. Lincoln received ono electoral . voto for every ten thousand of tho people's votes . that he got. General MeClellan, .on the contrary, is only credited with au electoral voto for every ninety thou- sand of his popular voto. In other words, Lincoln received nine- doctoral votes on the samo amount of strength that gave General MeClellan cue. It is not wonderful, therefore", that thero is n great disproportion of electors. Look at it : 1,700,000 of tho people' votes givo General MeClellan 21 doc toral votes ; l,9.)0,(J(tO of the people's votes givo Lincoln 210 chtoral votes.
