I know that it has been argued, and will be argued again that at all times, since the commenceir-ent of the government, the prac tice of the treasury has been to issue its drafts upon the public depositaries ; these drafts have not heretofore circulated as mon ey ; and that, if they now do, it is an inci dent which attaches no blame to the gov ernment.

The place is little changed, Mary; The Jay ia bright as then ; The lark's loud song is in my ear, And the corn is green again I But I mis3 the soft clasp of your hand. And your breath, warm on my cheek, And I still keep list'nin', for the words, You never more may speak. 'Tis but a step down yonder lane. And the little church stands near The church where we were wed Mary J see the spire from here; But the grave yard lies between, Mary, And my step might break your rest; For I've laid you, darling ! down to sleep, With your baby on your breast. I'm very lonely now, Mary, For the poor make no new friends; But, oh ! they love thee better still, The few our Father sends ! And you were a...
