O love’s blest primel ided from the portal stept; ' The bells made happv carolings, The air was soft as fanning wings, White petals on the pattleway swept. O pure-eyed bride! O tender bride! Two faces o’er a cradle bent; Two hands above the head were locked; These pressed each other while they rocked; These watched a life that love had sent. O solemn hour! O hidden power! Two parents by the evening fire: The red light fell about their knees On heads that rose by slow degree Like buds upon the lily-spire. O patient life! O tender strife! The two still sat together there; The red light shown about their knees, But all the heads by slow degrees Had gone and left the lonely pair. 0 voyage fast! O vanished past! The red light shone about the floor And made the space between them wide; They drew their chairs upside by side, Their pale cheeks joined an...

The movement to establish a company in Strasburg was inaugurated several months ago by patriotic citizens, who believed that such an organization here would do much to advertise the town, as well as be a source of pride and defense, in case of need. Many obstacles were encountered, but were overcome by the zeal and energy pf the officers and men. mustering in will be the crowning reward of patient, unrelenting work, and will also be an occasion of great interest to Strasburg.
