- For tho Raftsman's Journal. THE MAID OF TlCKAHOE. There is a place unknown to fame, A valley that! know; By some it es by Logan 8 name, Br o'fters Tnckahoe ; Jrever thrills my heart the same . Wherever I may go For there I've known life's sweetest joy, And sorrows fiercest pains : Love made my bliss but to destroy, , . My tears have fell like rain : The maid was modest, timid, coy, And loved me well again. No other could I ever love, My first and only flame ; My heart, as faithful as a dove, Was echo to her name : The chorus she to every song. The chord to every strain. Adila is the sweetest name That ever yet was sung; 'Tis ever throbbing in my heart ; iTi'ion mvtoneue: The first and last upon my mind, : Amidst the old and young. I love her well, with all my might, ' And more I cannot say : Of her I'm dreaming all the night, And thinking all the day ; Even when I lift my voice to praise, Or when I kneel to rray.

It ia Incoming more and more apparent ev ery day that the course pursued by Mr. Bu chanan and the leaders of Lis party on the Kansas question, ia highly distasteful to the honest-minded portion of the party, and that unless they can make a master-stroke of poli cy, an overwhelming defeat cannot be averted That they will endeavor by some means to prevent Bach a disastrous result, cannot be doubted ; whether they will succeed, remains to be seen. Locofocoism, we know, is a sub tle, cunning institution, and seldom at a lesa for means to tnrn things to its own advantage Its leaders are always on the look-out, watch ing the tide of public opinion, so as to be ready to fish at the flood. Latterly they hare observed that the policy of Protection to A merican Industry has taken strong hold cpon the minds of the masses, and that this ques tion will be the principal issue in the appro...
