POETRY. BABY’S SLEEP. The rose is on the casement laid, Nor crimson leaf nor zephyrs stir; The spider rests, as half afraid To spin his web of gossamer; The cat upon the door-sill croons Her softest, silkiest lulaby; The wren has bushed her tinkling tunes. And broods beneath the gable nigh—--1 almost hear the shadows creep, Such perfect bliss of stillness is, When baby goes to sleep, Like a white shallop out at sea, His cradle-bcd swings to and fro, And drifts him far away from me— I cannot go where he will go; And is it east, or is it wept, That isle of dreams, that shadowy land? And who will lead him on his quest? Or who will hold him by the hand? Though smiles across his sweet lips creep He will not tell—he guards them well, The secrets of his sleep. And now the birds sing out anew, The cat wakes, playful, by the door, The careless winds arise and strew A shower of rose-leaves on the floor; Child-laughter shakes the. summer air, And dancing feet arc in the hall, And 1 am drowned ...

For the Bannui., *Ode to Moonlight. BY X. Y. Z. Oh, beautiful moonlight night! How strong is thy mystical charm, As alone on the highway we wander, Jfot dreaming of danger or harm, Our thoughts are calm and serene, The toils of the day all arc past, {low contented and happy arc wo While those beautiful moon-beams last We wander again back to childhood, Those days of our innocent glee, When we knew not of trouble or sorrow And our spirits wore blithesome and free. When we know not why the sad look Of the men that we every day met, When otir hopes and our prospects were bright, And we bad naught to regret, Jn the mystical charm of the moonlight, When the world lies silent in sleep, We forget half our cares and troubles And the sorrows which oft made us weep. We heed not the sad memories And the broken and bleeding heart When forced by a stern, cruel fate From our dearest, best idols to part, Oh, beautiful moonlight night! What a calm and solace you give; But for your mystical charm We...

POETRY. AT THE wm OF THE JOURNEY We’re most V. . end of our journey, My darling, and isix’t it true That ’mid all mu losses and crosses ■ There’s always been plenty for two? And (hough of the dower of fortune We’ve had but a niggardly share, Our cupboard was never so empty We hadn’t a loaf we could spare, It seems like a dream that I ever Had courage to seek and to woo For my w ife such a beautiful blossom, So fair an exotic as you. ’Twas part of the dream that you chose me From others—you bade them depart — Preferring to riches and station The wealth of a true, loving heart. How little wo thought of the future, Or guessed of the trials we’d meet As out on life’s journey we started That morning so teudefly sweet! And some of our comrades, my darling, Whose prospects were brighter than ours Have broken their vows, and love's alter Is hung with funcrcl flowers. Put wc have been true to cacti other, My darling, and never a word That might sever the bond oi affection From your lips or m...

For tire Banner. Love. BY L. L. Oh! where is the girl That once was so fair As (he lily that stands by the brook? The. girl that I loved once As no other heart could love— She has left me. Yes, she has gone To find another like myself, To tear his heart away. Cruel, cruel, heartless girl, To leave one in this way, To linger on through life alone. She will think of this some day When I am dead and gone, And my grave has grown green. I’m like a like a little flower That has been plucked by the hand— Shall soon fade away. The Situation in Egypt. The Baltimore “Sun” says: Onr cable dispatches dated Alexandria state that the English consul there has sent notice to the other consuls advising them to notify their countrymen to quit the city within twenty-four hours. The Egyptians, in spite of their assertion, have been continuing their work of fortyfying and mounting guns, and Admiral Seymour has, therefore, it is stated, summoned the authorities to surrender the fortifications within twel...

Every one is aware that it is generally a hard matter for a fellow to get lodging for a night at a country house,no matter how much lucre he may have about his clothes. The party applied to for a roost and provender will almost invariably oiler some kind of an excuse for refusing the poor traveler his moderate request, telling him he will likely find no trouble in getting in at the next house, as there he will find better accommodation and there they are more in the habit of keeping strangers, have more room, etc., when he naturally observes the meaning of all this and betakes himself to the domicil of some one else, only, as in a case we have in mind, to meet with the same fortune. The following poetical effusion is the production of a Tennesseean, who went this way a fortnight since traveling by private conveyance, after having tried his hand at finding lodging a previous evening in Rockingham county near Harrisonburg: My Friendly Apple Tree. Thy foliage the dew hath kept Off one ...

POETRY . KATHLEEN MAVOUBNEEN. Oh! softly o’er each purpling hill The gray of evening stole, Yet down the West lingered still Faint, gleamy bars of gold; The camp-fire, like a lurid star, Glowed ’mid the shadows dim, A brook came wandering from afar, Singing its wordless hymn. We gathered ’round the fagots bright, Watching the dying day, Far o’er the peaks lay a silvery light, Like the hoar-frost cloak of a fay; The yellow moon rose slowly up, With a slumberous mellow glow, Spilling the wine from its golden cup Upon the mountain snow. Then some one swept an old guitar Of quaintest, Spanish make, And soon a sweet, prelusive bar, Stole trembling o’er the lake; “Kathleen Mavourneeu” softly fell Athwart the langourous air, That dear old song I knew so well— True love’s expiring prayer. The singer’s voice was coarse and rough But what cared I? for ohl The heart spoke in it—’twas enough; And, whilst he murmured low, The past came stealing back again, The dreams of happier hours Hose up bef...

A sweet perfume upon the breeze Is borne from ever vernal trees; And dowers that never fading grow.

POETRY, UK’S NONE THE WORSE FOR THAT. Wliiit thou,'.'li the homespun suit he wear;' — Host suited to the sons of toil. What though on coarsest food he fares, And tends the loom or tills the soil; What though no gold leaf gilds his tongue. Devoted to congenial chat? If right prevails, and not the wrong. The man is none the worse for that. <> What though within the humble cot No costly ornament is seen; What though the wife possesses not Her satin gowns of black and green; What though the merry household band Half naked fly to ball and bat? If conscience guides the heart and hand The man is none the worse for that. True worth is not a tiling of dress— Of splendor, wealth, or classic lore! Would that these trappings we loved less And clung to honest worth the more! Though pride may spurn the toiling crowd, The tattered garb, the crowulcss hat, Vet God and nature cry aloud, The man is none the worse for that! SELECTED . THAT RAINY DAY.
