MALTBIE. ’Twas in the early summer tima When flowers began to bloom. When buds and leaves and moSses green, Were b u r s t iL g f rom th e tom b . When showers and sunshine met midway, Betwixt the earth and sky, And troops of white and fleecy clouds Like things of life, swept by. The wind-flower trembled in the breexe That shook its fragile stem. The arbtttus trailed its soft pink buds Into a diadem. The tassels on the willow boughs And on the birch were hung, And in the grove, and by the brook The tender grasses sprung. The wild bird sung a merry song, The crick t Wwke the glade Where gelden-winged butterflies Slept silent in the shade. The wild be# hummed around the flower To sip the dew-drop there. And round and round it flitted still Ai tethered by a hair. Iwandered by the mountain’s base This bright and ha) py ncorn. And shook the dew-drops from the loughs And blossoms from the thorn. Gaily adown the mountain’s side A silver brook:et played. And where it leapt from rock to rock A “ Minnehaha’^made. Its waters, as I wandered up The steep ascent o view. Sunk deep and deeper m the glen And dark and darker grew. ’Till where they spread out deep and wida Far up the shelt’ring height. The green banks gleamed like emeralds Around a diamond bright. The blue sky looked into the wave Where flowers are mirrored fair. And everything seemed beautiful Save one dark object there. It stood so silent stark and grim Beside that mountain r II, It seemed some weird and fearful thing That made my bosom thrill. For ’neath those wild o’erhanging banks A low-roofed dwelling, stood. That looked as reared in olden times By Demon of the wood. And dark and dark the shadows fell Within the haunted glade— I half believed an Oread Would leap from out the shade. But as I forced my fears a-vay And nearer to it drew, I felt, methought a sulpherous breath And then its name I knew. Yet tender vines crept in an<2 out And bits of sunshine glowed Upon the shattered roof and walls That sad det^ertion showed. But as I gained the door I heard A low, soft murnmr there. For liy the grim and blackoned walls An o d mail kmclt in prayer. Deep poverty his humble mien And taftere 1 garb b trayod. And care upon hi< furrowed brow A heavy hand had laid. Adf>wn his brca-<t hislon*} beard flowed With age all silvered o'er. His locks were bioiiched as white as snow With fourscore years and more. The while I watrhed his quivering lip His bowed and kneeling mrni. He rose and wiped a tear away And bade a kind, “ good morn.” “ Good moniin"” oM man I replied And then my band he drew. Within his ovn with trembling grasp And said '• God bticV you''' Is He with j-ou 7—1 would have asked— But if I doubted then, I looked into his withered face. And could not doubt again. He spread his trembling band tohearen And raised his faded ej’e. And said in soft and earnest tones *' My God is alwai’s nigh.” “ He's all around me everywhere, I hear him in tiielrtce?e. ’Tis he who hangs these dripping dews Of morning ou the luics.” And tho’ my sands of life are run. And death apace draws near— I am not left to die alone. For God is with me here.” But death must erei wslcomo be To such as you, I said— The old man smiled and gently pressed His hand upon my head. If this were all of life, quoth he, Onr hearts with sorrows torn Mjght water all our way with tears W# ever had been born. But every thorn bids us to keep The narrow way witn care. Lest we forget the path to heaven And lose our birth-right there. With youth and health I careless trod Life’s path from day to day. Forgetful of the God who gave And who could take away. I had a wife and gentle b4>y Who grew to manhood np, God gave me nothing a!! those years But blessings, in my cup. Forgetful of his gifts and Him, He took them all away. And now in this lone siient spot I thank Him evejy day.

W ashington H ollow, Aug , 9th, 1859. D kar E d it o r ;—Monday, August 8th inst., was so delightfully pleasant as to deserve to be chronicled by all,—by the farmer as a “ good hay-day”—by the laundress as a “ fine washing day.”—by the pleasure seeker as a most b’weau-tiful day’’— by the traveller as one whose soft, balmy air, conspired with a serene sky and a fresh, verdant landscape to make the heart joyous, especially as thanks to the recent rains he was not obliged to “ kick up a dust” on his route. Following the fashion of the city “ elders” who seek repose from toils ministerial, in sylvan retreats or mingling with the throng wend their way to famed resorts, loe determined “ to steal awhile away” from our “ cumbering’ cares. Fortunately we had chosen this hal cyon day on which to set out. A o’clock, precisely we divided the house and taking my two little girls of five and seven years respectively as *• Compag non s du voyage” turned the face of mj faithful pony toward the land of my fathers. Our route lay through Lime Rock south to Sharon, thence through Poughkeepsie to the south of Ulster. The scenery was varied, picturesque and beautiful, my companions inquisitive, valuable and blithesome. The el dest had passed along the same route a year before with her grandfather and served as guide, professing to know the road, frequently pointing out objects re membered and more than ever convincing us of the durable nature of the rec ollections of childhood. We halted i few moments in Sharon at the house of our ministerial compere Stillwell- He kindly gave us a letter of introduction to a good Br. Beecher on our route, recommending us to his hospitalities for the night. When we were gone little Fannie wished to know if it was Henry Ward. Assuring her that it was not, and concluding it was not our fashion thus to make the acquaintance of stran gers we pressed on to Washington Hoi low, Dutchess Co., twenty-eight miles, where we were pleasantly entertained by our host Mr. Simmons, whilom an itinerant pedlar of Yankee Notions, taking Falls Village in his periqdical round. Botsford, Brewster, Cook, Kelley. Spurr, Miner, Wetherell, were well-known and appreciated names to him. all good fellows. I endorsed his opinion. At Amenia we made a slight halt.— Amenia is chiefly tamous as the seat of an excellent seminary of learning for the young—at which we had ourself imbibed from the fountains of knowledge some thirteen years before. Precious memories cluster around the place.— There friendships were formed to last as long as time and memory and as we fondly hope. Ions as eternity. There was the scene of many frolics, many scrapes, many rambles. Wemory had stored them all. There we had “ dug out” Latui and Greek roots with the enthusiasm of a tyro. There we h;id, had many a successful encounter with t uclid and there we travelled as far as Conic Sections. I'here our lawyer propensity was effectually overcome because we learned that best science of all, the art of loving Him who first loved in and gave himself for us. Of precious memory is the hour, “------When from above t^ a s te rn V irg in ia . BY DANIEL G. ROBERTS. Cen tr evil l e, F airfax Co., V a ., July 18th, 1859. M r.

A certain Count, who, in order to raise the wind, had made a league with the Old Gentlemen, violated his engagement, and was suddenly waited upon by his diabolical creditor, who, with a grin on his face, cried out to his victim, “ Come, we must be offimmediately !‘* The Count appeared most terrifledi In a timid tone of expostulation, he saidi “ Our agreement was for forty years J only twenty have e'apsed. Must I go ?’* “ Yes,’* replied Satan, in a determined but dogged tone. “ Grant me but a year?** “ No.” “ A day?*’ “ No.’* “ Then,’’ said the Count, “you see this candle; it is but an inch long. Whilst it is burning, here is a bottle and a cap* ital cigar to regale you. Will you not sp;ire me until this candle is burnt out?’* “ Yes,” answered the infernal guest. “ Very well,” said the Count, blowing out the candle, and thrusting it into his pocket; “ then I ’m snug enough.*’ So saying, he left the apartment by another door. The gentleman in black got up, his whole frame trembling with anger, and his eyes scintillating with hi* corruscation of wrath. He seemed with* al decidedly sneaking, and vanished with a clap of thunder! I first received the pledge of love” Since then it is my chief joy to preach this same saviour to others, and I hope to live to his glory and cry in death. Behold, behold the Lamb.*' But we were safely ensconced In Washington Hollow, “ Snug as a bug In a rug.” Now if you will allow us two observations of some practical value we will put out the light and bid you good night First. My little child retained many and vivid impressions of what had transpired a year before. She will probably always retain them. Hoio important that parents set a correct example and lead the minds of their children out after him who is seen us all his works—the living God. Second. 'Hotels, houses of entertain-mentaxQ b. necessity to the. traveller. It is true I might, though a stranger, by virtue of my profession, have enjoyed the hospitalities of a brother and have been a welcome guest. Butthe inn-keep-er opens his house to accommodate the traveller, the public, and as one of that public I feel under obligation to support him. Otherwise I save a few coppers but at the expense of a certain uncomfortable. spongy, sensation which is to me quite disagreeable. But he sells rum! So he does, and I am sorry for it but he will tell you that temperance men are so stingy as to ‘cousin” their way through the world leave him to starve or do worse, and so he does worse, that is sells bad liquor. We need public houses.and they ought to be sustained and temperance men, Chnstian men ought to sustain them.— Until they do we must expect them to b e c h ieH y s u p p o r te d b y d r am d r in k e r s | co rae ’ to th e ” w h a r v e r and have them of a corresponding char.' terminus of the Cl.esapkke and Ohio ca. arter. Yours Truly, C. S. B. nal and also of the various railroads sity of the case with a degree of coolness worthy of Roman philosophers. A fine opening for settlers is now being formed from the causes before mentioned; and those citizens of the Northern states who wish to select a new home, should lose no time in making this country a visit. Our county lies adjacent to the cities of Ale.vandria, Washington and Georgetown, in either of which cities, farm produce brings as high a price as it does in the streets of New York and Philadelphia. We have a mild climate and a fertile soil, easily improved to any degree of fertility; a pure and hea.'thy atmosphere and a purely republican government — Our county contains no waste land;—no mountains;—no swamps. The face of the country is gently undulating, being neither too flat, nor too hilly. Our soil is free from stones, and very pleasant to cultivate It consists in most cases of a clay loam, and is well adapted to the growth of wheat corn, oats, grass and all other crops that are raised in the Northern and Eastern states. We have an abundance of timber and good water, two luxuries which few of the western states can boast of. By the completion of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, the western portion of this county is now brought within one hundred minutes ride of the cap-itol of the United States. Along the line of this road is much excellent land, consisting of farms with comfortable, and in some cases, excellent buildin:rs,with plenty of fruit trees, &c., w’hich is now being offered from $15 to $20 per acre. Wood land can be had for $10. I am quite certain that it would be much w'iser for the Northern men to bring their families here in the midst of civilization than to take them to the far west Many, no doubt, think they will not be well received by the slave holders: will not be respected. In this tiiey are greatly mistakened, as I have already shown Any man^ coming here from the North enjoys his own sentiments and utters them freely; and no one regards him with less favor, should he be ever so much opposed to the “ peculiar in.«titu- ’’.provided he respects the rights of his neighbors, as indeed,every one should concern himself about his opinions upon the “Goose question.” Real estate is destined to go up at a rap pid rate. Our close proximity to market will have the effect of making this a densely populated country. Alexandria is an excellent shipping port, where the largest vessels that sail the ocean can It is also the was haling the oxkenigin fl->.idicaL vapors from a lamp that he accidentally left burning in his room. After the fluid was all consumed the chemists said that the oxogical suction of the v-ick so eon sumed the nitrogen of the lungs, that the Jluidical vapors suddenly stopped the in* spiratio:^ and the heart ceased to beat.” John raised himself up in bed, gazed with a sternnes indescribable on the reclining form of his room-mate, and in a stentorian voice exclamed, “ Why in thunder didn’t you blow out that lamp?” “ Well, sure enough,” was the reply, “ it a’n’t out, is it? Well, never mind, John it ’11 go out itself in a little while.” “ No, it wcn't go out itself, notin a room where / sleep.” And in the twinkling of a cat’s tail, John had extinguished the light and returned to his bed, muttering as he did so, ‘ I ’d rather get up a dozen times than to die as Daniel Hoskins did.” In the morning John wanted to learn all the particulars about the death of Mr. Hoskins, but William had no recollection of ever speaking* of it, and accused the honest fellow of dreaming. Consultings a Creditor. There was a certain lawyer on the Cape, a long time ago, the only one in those “ diggins” then, and, for aught I know at present. He was then a man well to do in the world, and, what was surprising in a “ limb of the law,” he discouraged litigation. Ont3 day a client came to him in a violent rage. “ Look a’herc, Squire,” said he, “ that ’ere blasted shoemaker down to Pigeon Cove has gone and sued me for the mon ey for a pair of boots I owed him.” *• Did tho boots suit you?” “ 0. yes.'’ “ Well, then you owe him the money honestly?’’ Of course” “ Well, why don't you paj^ him ?** “ Why, ’cause the blasted snob went and sued me, and I want to keep him out of the money if I kin.*’ “ It will cost you something.” “I don't care a fig for that How much do you want to begin with ?” “ 0, ten dollars will do.” “ Is that all? Well, here ’s an X, so go ahead,’’ and the client went off very well satisfied with the beginning. Our lawyer next called on the shoemaker. and asked him what he meant by instituting legal proceedings against “ hy,’* said he, to him for the money till I got tired I know’d he was able to pay, and I was ’termined to make him. That*s The S p ir it s —^A few days since the Spiritual Telesrapli announced that some of the faithful had been liberated from jail in Oswego, N Y., through the intervention of spirits. It seems that three persons had 1 een fined for giving exhibitions contrary to law, and that the spirits commanded them not to pay. (an injunction which they were perfectly able, pecuniarially, to obey.) but go to jail, where they were accordingly sent tor thirry days. One morning, notwithstanding the door was locked, one of them was missin*;, and his comrades asserted he was liberated by the spirits and so the spiritual paprrs have declared.— The jailer, however, pretty effeciually taki s out of the story any “ spiritual’* agency The prisoners were occupying the debtors room in the the third story, which was not kept locked in the day time. When they held their •‘ci’-clo?.*' as they were in the habit of « large blanket was hung up Kforv door to prevent intrusion. rarely di-turbe I them. Ou iia question when he went Lvi the blanket was hajiginsc K i; a , .,i one of them callingout * out making an e.\aminaii<.>H ihx' avX>r was locked. After the disoorerr of the escape, it was soon apparvnt how ir was effected. In the hall adjoining their room was a door leading to the garret* Previous to the jailor's locking their door, one of the prisoners had slipped out and passed up into the garret, while the others had put up the blanket, blown out the light ami '‘formed a circle’’ to cover the retieat Knowing that the jailor never intruded into their circles^ they were certain this plan would work. On going into the garret the window was found open, with a rope hanging out, reaching to the shed below, w’^hich is some eight feet above the ground, and the back gate, M'hich fastens on the inside, left open, showing conclusively what kind of ‘ spirits” accomplished the escape. Mr. Hume, too—the great rapping medium—has recently been defected in his deceptions. At an entertainment in Pam, one of the guests, a particularly active individual, made a sudden grasp at the spirit which was tickling his leg, and behold, he found Mr Hume’s foot in his band. On another occasion, a child's glove was found lying on the floor when the furniture was being put to rights, which was thought to indicate that, the “spirits” inhabited the bodies of small persons. Billy came runnhig into the house the other day. and asked eagerly, “ Where does Charity begin?** “ At home.” I replied in the Words of the proverb. “ Not by a good deal,” re' I kept on sending (C .I long and short of It.” ^ Insults are like counterfeit moii-the ^ Pv: we can’t help their being offcfed. but vre needn’t take them.
