WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29. STATZBCRO, S. C.. August 24, 1SSS. Editor Watchman and Southron : The inclosed parody oa "The Raven" was written by a friend of mine by whose leave I send it for publication if the subject is not too inelegant for the columns of your paper. JAFFREY. THE BAVIN-DRUNK. BY THOMAS ANONYMOUS. Oece upon a midnight dreary, While I .nodded, sick and weary, Under many a glass of tanglefoot And other liquors, very poor, While I nodded, nearly napping, Suddenly an ape came snapping, Snapping at me o'er and o'er, I was then a funny fellow, being then a little mellow, 'Tis some monkey, this, I muttered Snapping at me o'er and o'er, Only this and nothing more, Creeping thus outside my door. Indistinctly I remember How the bleak wind of December, Blew each separate glowing ember, Blew and whistled through my door ^ How also there came a hissing From some serpents, softly kissing, Kissing oft7, but sometimes missing, jStuek their fangs deep in my floor ; These are snakes, and I...

WEDNESDAY, SSPTSMBSE 5. ; SHE CHESBFUI? FACE. A blessing on the cheerful face, Wherever it is found ; ' A sunshine in a shady place, It loaches gloom with light and grace, i And gladdens all around. Who bas sot felt the subtle spell That lurks in sunny, eyes ? The lips where smiles forever dwell : The cloudless brow that seems to tell OT hope that never dies. One glance the drooping spirit cheers, Asia the gloom we grope, Lifts us above this vale of tears, * Beyond th? doubts, beyond the fears, To realms of light and hope. The features may he very plain, Bat if the soul shines bright, Around oar heart it weaves a chain, - Which beauty's self would cast in vain Untouched by. inward light. ^ And who knows not the sunshine thrown By even a- baby's face ; That, shining at a loving tone, Is gladly raised to meet your own With almost angel-grace. Yet more we prize the chastened glow That aged faces wear ; When done with earth, its storms, ita woe, Heaven's bliss they for a while forego, T...

Jasper was a loco? motive engineer on the Burlington road, and had trod the footboard of an engine aa fireman and driver since his mostacho first grew on his stripling' chin. His ./Caseerhad been one of such evenness and calm, so much quiet life within himself, - %? such absence of incident or accident, that his steady temper had been rarely stirred lay joy or sorrow. His first grief had come to h"*? ten years or more before, when his wife died suddenly while he was away on his engine.
