The committee did not deem it necessary to inquire what soldiers and sailors they were and he was unable to say whether they were federal or confederate.

A ENGLAND'S VULNERABILITY. How Great Britain Can be Starred Out in Case of War—A Remarkable Ad mission. London Saturday Review. It has often been asked what England would do if she. found herself at war with another maritime power. So long as America is able to send us as much corn as we want it matters noth ing to the consumer whether or not it pays the English farmer to grow corn. If it does not that is only a reason why the farmer should grow something else instead. If the American producer can undersell him in wheat, or even in beef, he may in his turn undersell the American producer in vegetables or in dairy produce. But in the event of England being at war this cheerful way of looking at the question would plain ly be out of place. A whole population cannot be fed on early vegetables or on eggs fresh from the nest. The quartern loaf is the only thing that can do the I work on a large scale, and the quartern loaf is no longer to be had within the four seas. It is made for the m...

WHY DID SHE DIE? Why did ehe cle. when life eeetned fair. And no dark clouds were near To dim the brightness of oar lives. Or start the hitter tear We thought not, at the close of day, When night veiled earth and Bky, That one so full of life and hop WoulC breathe a last "Good-by." We saw not on the silent sea The boat that neared the shore: The boatman pale we did not hear Dip in his muffled oar We only know he softly came And closed the beaming eye, With bitter tears and anguished heart. We ask, "Why did she die?" No angel-whisper met our ear From that bright land afar. That there were loved ones waiting At the gates that stand ajar We did not hear the rustle of Their garments round her bed We only saw her pallid face, And knew that she was dead. The summer, with' its buds and flowers, Will their sweet fragrance shed, In soit and mournful silence Above her lowly bed: While we in grief and sadness, Will watch the days go by, And ask in tearfnl silence. *'Alasl why aid she die??

UtiREST. Like a thorn in the fleeb, like a fly in the mesh, Like a boat that is chained to shore. The wild unrest of the heart in my breast, Tortures me more and moie. I know not why it should wail and cry. Like a child that is lost at night For it knows.no grief but has found relief. And it is not touched with blight. It has of pleasure fall many a measure It had thrilled with lore's red wine It has hope, health, and youth's rare wealth— O rich is this heart of mine I Yet it is not glad- it iB wild and mad. Like a billow before it breaks And its ceaseless pain is worse than vain, Since it knows not only it aches. It longs to be like the waves of the sen. That break from control, and beat. And dash, and lunge, and hurry, and plunge. And die at the gray rock's feet. It wearies ot life, and it sickens of strife And yet It tires of rest.
