ItHE NA1ES0NAL 1EEIBUNE: "WASHOSTGTOIS", D. C, DECEMBER 31, 1881. 7 WAGES .ij It was .a merry brook, that ran Beside my cottage door all day, I beard it, as I sat and span Singing a pleasant song nlway. I span my thread, with mickle eare The weight within my hand increased ; The spring crept by me unaware; The brook dried up-the music ceased. I missed it little, took small thought That silent was its merry din, Because its melody was wrought I mo the thread I sat to spin. II. It was a lark that sang most sweet Amongst the sunrise cloud so red ; 1 knew his nest lay near my feet, Altliougli he sang so high o'erhead. And though he sang so loud and clear "Up in the golden clouds above, 2Iis throbbing song seemed wondrous near ; I twined it with the web I wove. The long day's glory still drew on : Then Autumn came ; the Summer fled ; The music that I loved was gone; The song was hushed the singer dead. in. I wove on with a steadfast heart ; My web grew greater, fold on fold. I bore it to...

THE NATIONAL TKIBUE: WASHINGTON, D. C, DECEMBER 31, 1881. : TRIAL OF THE ASSASSIN. December 12th. The first witness was Dr. E. C. Spitzka, who testified substantially as follows: That he was a physician ; had made a specialty of the branches of nervous and mental diseases for nearly six years, and had been called as an expert in insanity cases twenty-five or six times; had examined the prisoner, and pronounced him insane, and from the hypothetical ease stated should consider him to have been so when he fired the fatal shot. On cross-examination, counsel for the Govern ' ment having brought out the fact that witness was a veterinary surgeon, the latter replied: "I have no reason to be ashamed of it. The question has been asked before from suggestions coming from a certain quarter." Mr. Davidge having asked whether the witness had practiced veterinary surgery, the witness said, with some asperity : " I never have treated any animal but the ass, and that animal had two legs." Mr. David...

The year was fast drawing to a close, and both Union and confederate generals had little to report save plots and counterplots. On the part of each there was little that was encouraging. The early spring had found Middle and "West Tennessee in possession of the former. Two large armies oc cupied all prominent points, and the beaten con federates encamped in Mississippi were con fronted by an army too powerful for them to attack.

2 THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., JANUARY 7, 1882. SNOW-FLAKE. We parted in the winter, And from the distant hill She watched my ship sail outward O'er the waters cold and still. I could not see the tear-drop That glistened in her eye, Nor her dainty kerchief waving Against the frosty sky ; But I knew her heart was hreathing A gentle word of prayer ; 1 knew her eye was streaming, And her kerchief waving there. I said before I left her, " Farewell, my love, farewell ; 3 am sailing to the sunshine, And the laud where myrtles dwell ; But still my longing fancy Will turn to rest with thee ; My snow-flake on the mountain Is more than all to me." You know how the pure snow melteth, "When the winter's cold is sped; Ay, so before that ship returned, My sweet snow-flake was dead. Ml the Year Found. THE WHITE LADY OF HILLBURY, BY MRS. C. DESPAKD.

The npplcs are ripe in the orchard, The work of the reaper is done, And the golden woodlands redden In the blood of the dying sun. At the cottflgc-door the grandsire 'r Sits pale in his easy chair, "While the gentle wind of twilight 1 1 Plays with his silver hair. t A woman is kneeling beside him ; A fair young head is pressed, In the first wild passion of sorrow, Against his aged breast. And far from over the distance The faltering echoes come Of the flying blast of trumpet, Andthe rattling roll of drum. And the grandsire speaks in a whisper: "The end no man can see; But we give him to his country, And Avcgive our prayers to Thee."' The violets star the meadows, The rose-buds fringe the door, And over the grassy orchard The pink-white blossoms pour. . But the grandsire's chair is empty, The cottage is dark and still ; There's a nameless grave in the battle-field, And a new one under the hill. And a...

6 THE NATIONAL TBIBTJNE: WASHINGTON, D. C, JANUARY 7, 1882. A BOY'S SOLILOQUY. I wonder if I ran away to sea or oft' to Texas, like the fellows that I've read about in stories brave and bold, If sifter Sue would only say, " Well, he's not here to vex us ; " Or if my folks would care the least, though I were tired and cold. My father well I cannot say I'm intimate with him ; He's at the office every day, and no one dares to stir When he comes home, for if they do, they hear a gruft and grim Commanding voice: "Be silent there! My eye is on you, sir!" I like to listen to Alphonso, my splendid, grand, big brother, Who's been away oft' to China, and India, and Japan; But he always sends me kiting, and calls me such a bother; I won't treat the boys so horridly, if ever I'm a man. My mother uhed to love me. Yes, she loved me dearly, too, When 1 was jufct a little chap, with curling, golden hair; But now I'm at the awkward age I heard her telling clumsy and so rough, and she finds me such a...

THE NATIONAL TRIBUTE: WASHINGTON, D. C, JANUARY 7, 18S2. A WINTER'S NIGHT, The air is numb and dead with cold, My footsteps crash and crush the snow, My beard cracks frozen, and I behold My breath like smoke, yet on I go. How hushed and restful lies the land! The moon lights up old pine trees round, Longing for friencHy death they stand, And point with branches to the ground. Frost, freeze my heart too ! In my breast Freeze the rclellious heats and pains, That once even there, even there be rest, As here on these nocturnal plains. Rural Topics. CONDUCTED BY WILLIAM SAUNDERS, "Washington, D. C.

2 THE NATIONAL TBIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C, JANUARY 14, 1882. THE AUTUMN OF LIFE. The old man sits ftt his cottage door, In the gleam of the dying day; His heart is calm as the silent shore, "When the winds liave passed away ; His thoughts as still as the fragrant hreczo That whispers of peace to the acure seas. His is the beauty of earth and air, The glow of the twilight hours; He feels that glory every where Is breathing from woodland flowers, And his heart grows young, though his years are old. At tlie wondrous sight of the sunset gold ! For memory comes with a gentle hand, And bearelh on Fancy's wiugs His thoughts to her own immoral land, Where the Past forever sings Of joys that brightened the fair days fled, Ere friendships faded with friends long dead.

" But one sternly answered me, " Wc seek our comrades whom we left to thee : The weak, who were thy strength; the poor, who had Thy pride; the faint and few who gave to thee One supreme hour from out the day of life, One deed majestic to their century.

Smith, Jones, and Robinson, three neighbors gay, "Went out upon one Christmas day To spend a social hour together ; They walked, and talked, and joked, and smoked, And laughed, and quaffed in merry mood, And made remarks about the weather. An hour or two ran into three, Time seemed to run so merrily To these three jolly neighbors. And when the shades of night came down They had not left that part of town Where bar-men ply their labors.

Abide not in the Realm of Dreams, Oh man, however fair it seems, Where drowsy aire thy powers repress In languor of sweet idleness. Nor linger in the misty Post, Entranced in visions vague and vast; But with clear eye the Present scan, And hear the call of God and man. That call, though many-voiced, is one "With mighty meaning in each tone ; Through sob and laughter, shriek and prayer, Its summons meets thee everywhere. Think not in sleep to fold thy hands, Forgetful of thy Lord'6 commands; Prom Duty's claims no life Is free Behold, To-day hath need of thoe ! Look up ! the wide extended plain Is billowy with the ripened grain, And on the summer winds are rolled Its waves of emerald and gold.
