Slowly tli mist o'er the meadow u creeping,
Bright on the dewv buds glistened the sun
When from tua coach, while fcia children
JCoae the bold rebel and ahouldered his gun.
Waving her golden Tail
Over the ailent dale,
. Blithe looked the morning on cottage and spire ;
Hushed was his parting sigh.
While from his noble ere
flashed the last aparkle o liberty's fire.
Ob the smooth green where the fresh leaf is spring
ing. Calmly the first-born of glory hare met ;
Hark ! the death-volley around them is ringing I
Look ; with their life-blood the young grass is wet
Faint is the feeble breath.
Murmuring low In death.
Tell to our sons bow their fathers have died
Nerveless the iron hand.
Raised for its native land,
lies by the weapon that gleams at its side.
Over the hillsides the wide knell is tolling.
From their far hamlets the yeomanry como ;
Jut through the storm-cloud the thunder burst
Circles the beat of the mustering drum.
Fast on the soldier's path,
Darken the waves of wrath.
Long have they gath red and loud shall thev fall ;
Ked glares the musket's Sash. "
Sharp rings the rifle's crash,
Slazing and clanging from thicket and wall.
Gayly the plume of the horseman was dancing,
Sever to shadow his cold brow again ;
Proudly at morning the war steed was prancing.
Retting and panting he droops on the rein ;
Pale la the lip of scorn,
Voiceless the trumpet horn.
Torn is the silken-fringed red cross on high ;
Many belted breast
low on the turf shall rest
Ere the dark hunters the herd have passed by.
8now-girdled crags where the hoarse wind is raving,
Kocks where the weary floods - murmur and waU,
Wilds where the fern by the furrow is waving,
Beeled with the e choes that rode on the gale ;
Far as the tempest thrills
Over the darkened hills.
Par as the sunshine stresms over the plain.
Roused by the tyrant band,
- ' Woke all the mighty land,
Girded for battle, from mountain to main.
Green be the graves where her martyrs are lying !
Shroudless and tnmbless thev sunk to their rest,
While o'er their aehes the starry fold flying
Wraps the proud eagle they roused from his nest.
Borne on her Northern pine,
Long o'er the foaming brine,
Spread her broad banner to storm and to sun ;
Heaven keep her ever free,
Wide as o'er land and sea,
Floats the fair emblem her heroes have won !
THE TYIFE'S RESOLUTION.
" Yes, it mnat be done. I am resolved
upon it," said the young wife, as she
clasped her slender fingers. "I must
be earef hi in carrying out my resolution,
for nothing else can save my husband
from the fate of other members of the
family and oh ! such a fate !" she con
tinued, burying her face in her hands,
as if she would shutout the remembrance
of something terrible. " Can it be that
I am destined to become the wife of a
drunkard t" she exclaimed, after a pause.
Is this pleasant home," she added,
ookiag around the tastefully furnished
apartment, "to be exchanged for the
wretched dwelling of an inebriate, and
oome oh! no, no! Father in Heaven,
avert this threatening calamity! Send
suffering and sorrow, if Thou seest they
are needed, t purify our souls from the
dross of earth, but spare us, oh, God,
from sin and degradation. They surely
cannot be necessary ; then grant me to
avert them," and rising from her luxuri
ous couch, she passed from her parlor
into an elegant dining-room beyond.
" My husband will be displeased at first,
and his father and brothers will ridicule
me, and call me mean: but my husband
is dearer to me than even my own repu
tation, and I must endure even his anger
for the sake of saving him;" and with
trembling hands, but unflinching will,
the lovely bride removed the decanters
of choice liquors from the sideboard, and
preparing some lemonade most careiuliv,
she placed it in their stead beside the
crystal goblets. Though she retired to
her chamber and spent the interval until
her husband's return in earnest prayer
for strength to bear ridicule, and, it
might be angry reproach, her heart mis
gave her when she heard his step on the
gravel-walk and that he had company
with him, and as she descended to meet
him in her accustomed place, her trem
bling limbs almost refused to bear their
" Wife, this is my friend, Mr. Orms
bury," said the proud husband. "Orms-
bury, this is Mrs. K , the loveliest,
gentlest wife in all the land."
The visitor seemed struck with the
beauty of "the young wife's face, but re
plied gayly, "You might think so now,
because your honeymoon is scarcely over.
Wait a bit, my friend, until her wishes
come into collision, and then you may
change the adjective to a more signifi
"Nay, my veriest whims are law to
her, and I am not afraid of her setting
up her wishes in opposition to mine."
' Joxeept lor our own good, said the
wife, softly; but she only said aloud,
" Your friend will stay and take a social
supper with us."
Not to-night, I thank you."
" Do give us that pleasure."
" I should like to afford myself that
pleasure, but, unhappily, a business en
" You will at least take some refresh
ments. My dear, order in some cake
'Nothing for me, indeed." .
" Ah ! you must taste of my cake in
order to judge of my housewifery ; only
a good wife has a right to fulfill your
prognostication of swaying it over her
husband," and, laughing merrily, she
left the room. Surely that salver borne
by the servant who had returned with
her was sufficiently tempting ; and those
rich eakes and basket of choice fruit, and
that silver pitcher of lemonade ought to
have satisfied any reasonable man ; but
the husband looked blank at the absence
of wine, and something was said in a low
tone to the wife, who answered :
" I prepared this expressly for you ;
will you not take it for my sake? Surely,
this warm evening, it is more refreshing
While the lady was speaking to her
guest, the host sent the servant on some
errand to the dining-room, and when she
returned with the answer," There is
none," a flush mounted to his brow, and
he . muttered, ''None there I . stupid
thing! r but no sooner had the door
closed upon their visitor, than he assured
himself by personal observation that she
told the truth.
, " Where on earth are the decanters
anil why was not my friend allowed to
refresh himself with wine in my house ?"
he exclaimed hastily. "Have we sud
denly become bankrupt that we must use
such stinted hospitality?"
"There is no stinting here," replied
the lady, " and I am sure none of your
friends need complain when they have
such wholesome) lemonade' offered them
instead of the dangerous wine-cup."
"Wholesome! dangerous! What
emperance stuff is this ? Another such
freak as this, and I shall get the name
which is new to us, that of being too
Btingy to provide wine. None of our
family were ever known to be sparing of
"Far better if they had," said the wife
unconsciously , wria ging her hands. " Q
Jam o ("this omission sprang , from no
momentary freak, no woman's caprice ;
but from earnest resolution to "
" Try and save my husband," she
added meekly but fervently.
" To save me ! You are vastly kind.
"From poor Fred's fate," she said
faintly, blinded by the tears that could
not be held back.
" I thank you for the compliment. So
you think me in danger of becoming
such a miserable sot ; but I hope I have
too much pride if nothing else, to keep
me from degrading myself thus."
" At your age, he did not think the
same ? A few years ago, did he not look
as fair as you, did he not think himself
as strong I And what is he now where
is his manliness and beauty of which he
was so proud? His face haunted me all
night, and I dreamed of his broken
hearted wife and his poor children,
blighted in their youth by their own
parent. O James ! the Bible says truly,
'wine is a mocker,' and so long as we
tamper with the poison, we have no
right to say, we are safe.' Those only
are secure who obey the exhortation to
' touch not, taste not, handle not ;' and I
have resolved, after earnest and prayer
ful deliberation, never to be guilty of
offering that insidious foe to my friends,
much less to the dearest of all friends,
Vn'm in whom all my life is bound up."
" You don't mean to say that you wish
to exclude wine from our dinner-table
and frem our social parties ?"
" Believing it to be dangerous, I do."

to visit the drinking-saloon or the tavern

Angrily he started to and fro, mutter-,

she was right ; and while she realized
her own weakness, she trusted in Him

The month she had spent in the home
of her husband had opened her eyes
fearfully to the danger of sleeping on the
exhilarating wine-cup. She had often
heard in her girlhood of the evils of in
temperance, but she fancied they existed
only among the lower classes, the dregs
of society. Until she became an inmate
of that family, she dreamed not that the
highly educated, the refined, degraded
themselves to the level of the brute by
first sipping rosy wine from shining
liquor-cups or sparkling crystal goblets.
Free, generous livers they were called,
exercising a wnoie-soulea Hospitality to
all, while none who came within the
circle could fail to be fascinated, with
their charming manners. Alas! the
poor young wife saw that they were only
genial when under the influence of ex
citement, and even those lovely girls,
her new sisters, sought to be lively and
fascinating. When she saw their beauti
ful eyes sparkle with unwonted brilliancy,
the bloom grow deeper, and heard the
flashes of wit, she turned away in sad
ness, saying, " Alas ! alas ! what lovely
victims !" The father could dispose of
bottle after bottle without losin g his con
trol, but not so with his children. Per
sons occasionally wondered that their ani
mal spirits should lead them to such ex
cess ; but there were times when she
could not help but knowing whi t ailed
those polite, refined young men and wo
men. On festive occasions, the wife began
to watch her husband anxiously.
Sometimes he poured oat and drank
with a sort of reckless air, and then the
unsteadiness of his hand or the gleam of
his eye would startle her ; and once, but
only once, she shrank from his ardent
kiss, feeling that he was inflated with
wine rather than pure affection. She
tried to forget that time, or to fancy it a
dream, but she could not.
The name of the oldest son, Frederick,
was seldom mentioned by any of the
family, and the day previous to the com
mencement of this sketch, she under
stood the reason why. Then he came
reeling along into her home, more beast
She shuddered as she looked upon that
bloated, besotted face. She could not
pollute her hand by placing it within his,
much less in addressing the degraded be
ing could her lips frame the holy word
No wonder the spectacle haunted her
dreams that night, as she would fancy
herself at the death-bed of that once
lovely woman, whose heart he had broken,
and hear her whisper, " Your husband is
following in the footsteps of mine ; oh !
stor him !"
Not long after the wife's resolution was
formed, the young couple wished to give
a dinner-party to all their relatives, and
as it was the first in their own house,
they wished to convey very pleasant ideas
of their hospitality.
Then came the contention which the
lady had forseen and the bitter opposition
of her husband to carry out the reso
lution she had formed to banish liquor
from their board. In vain she told him
of the delicious coffee which should sup
ply its place ; he persisted that she should
not thus bring upon him the name of a
niggard. And though she told him that
upon her, rather than upon him, should
au imputations rest, though she pleaded
in the gentlest manner, she had need of
all the strength she had so earnestly im
plored from on high.
For a time, there was a serious estrange
ment between them, and his family, tak
ing sides with him, told him that she
wished to usurp too much authority over
him as the head of the house, while they
sneered openly at her "fanaticism," her
" meanness," her wan of " hospitality."
But she prayed without ceasing, and God
at length opened his eyes to the danger
of trifling with that which had caused
his brother's ruin. With his consent,
liquor was regarded only as "medicine,"
and while the wife exerted herself to have
a suppy of good things in the house,
both united in giving so cordial a wel
come to their guests, that those who en
joyed their hospitality soon ceased to
notice the absence of wine. ',
By degrees, others followed the exam
ple of the young wife, and gradually
such a reformation took place in the town
that in afew years all the " first families
had banished the beverage from their
sideboards and dinner-tables.
Her husband is now the only survivor
of all his father's family. While he feels
that each one fills a drunkard's grave, he
turns to his wife, now no longer young, "
but beautiful in his eyes, and says,
' Such would have been my fate but for
you. I stood on the brink of the preci
pice, but I knew not my danger until
you revealed it to me," While she says
with burst of gratitude, " Not unto me;
but unto thy name, O Lord, be all the

A very interesting article in the Popu
lar Science Monthly for April we con
dense for the benefit of our readers,
regretting that space cannot be givem to
If there is any one disease that the
diligent brain-worker a little past middle
life has reason to fear it is apoplexy.
Although statistical evidence is wanting,
the experience of the physician confirms
the popular belief that more of our dis
tinguished men are carried off by this
disease or by one of its sequels, paraly
sis, than by any other cause. There are
no vessels carrying blood to and from
the various organs of the body which so
frequently rupture as those in the brain.
The causes that produce this result are
the fatty degeneracy of the middle arte
rial coat of the cerebral vessels, whereby
their elastic strength is much impaired,
the great irregularity of blood distribu
tion to the contents of the cranium and
the little support which the pulpy sub
stance of the brain gives to the weak
ened vessels imbedded in it. The chief
causes which produce this structural
change are the habitual use of ardent
spirits and tobacco. Every one is aware
that the leading effects of these agents
on the body are such as Show that the
functions of the nervous system are more
affected than any other, and the physi
cian also knows that when symptoms of
disorder arise from their use they are
such as denote that the nervous system is
almost alone implicated.
! Ardent spirits also tend to produce an
overf ullness of the cerebral vessels, and
to affect the functions of the brain in a
manner which strangely blend stupidity,
brightness and exhilaration. Effects so
unnatural and so frequently ending in
disease, influence injuriously the nutri
tion of the nervous centers. And to in
terfere with the nutrition of any part of
the body is simply to impair the fife and
power of its structure. The evidences
of this impairment may not be felt im
mediately. In fact the evidences of im
pairment by any bad habit are seldom
apparent during the prime of youthful
vigor. But the mischief is going on,
nevertheless, and the organ upon which
the weight of infringement fails will be
the one that will first manifest signs of
disease, and through which death will
make its conquest over the body. During
sleep the brain is almost bloodless; its
substance seems to shrink into a lifeless
mass; but the moment that wakef nines
occurs it swells out, gets red, its arterie8
and veins becoming distended with a
great tide of blood. No other part of
the body is subject to such drouths and
floods in its circulation. This inequality
is still further increased by severe mind
labor. The ardent student is well aware
that deep thought heats the head and
cools the feet. The first apoplectic
stroke, as a rule, is not a severe one ; a
little blood escapes by a tiny pent, the
shock to tike system slows the action of
the heart, the escape ot blood ceases,
and nature heals the part torm and re
moves the blood-clot by absorption.
Then, as the blood vessels in the brain
grow weaker, under a greater tension
than ordinary, a larger rent is made
allowing the blood to escape in hopeless
profusion. Napoleon stood in great
dread of this disease, and was told by
his medical adviser, "Sire, tihe first at
tack is a warning, the second a summons,
the third a summons to execution."
What is to be done by those who in
herit a tendency to apoplexy or whose
habits of life predispose them to this
disease 1 -Clearly to diminish .and keep
the tension on these vessels br the blood
at a low rate all the time. A prudent
hre-engH&eer, when his water hose are
old and weakr would work them at a low
pressure. Men must carry ott the same
simple Mechanical principle when there
is reason to believe that the vessels of
the brain are eettine weak and brittle.
A stroke of apoplexy occurs
frequently after eating a full meal.
As soon as old age puts a decided
check on .the amount of daily -exercise, it
is time to put a decided check on the
amount f food daily consumed. The
kind of food best adapted to keep down
superfluous blood is the vegetable. The
true rule is not to eat to entire satiety.
Even those of younger years and seden
tary habits will feel lighter and better in
every way bv leavinc- the table a little
hungry. . All strong liquors are oinsuited
to those with an apoplectic tendency lor
reasons already given.
Altogether Too Realistic
Says the New York Sun : The best,
most practical joke of All Fool's day,
was perpetrated in Booth's Theater in the
celebrated humble-pie scene of the fifth
act of "Henry V.," in which Fluellen
makes Pistol eat the leek. The prop
erty leek" ordinarily used is wood, with
green muslin leaves and a piece of peeled
apple at the end. Some practical jokist
entered the property man s room and
substituted a fresh onion in the place of
the apple (in honor of All Fool s Day).
Thome who plays Fluellen,took the leek,
innocently handed it to Bishop (Pistol),
after knocking him down, and made his
speech with the usual gusto ending with:
" Bite, I pray you. It is good for your
green wound and bloody cockscomb."
Poor Bishop, after the first bite, played
his part with a pathos that moves the au
dience to the widest pitch of merriment,
little did they or Fluellen dream how
real and painful were the tears Pistol was
shedding, as he ejaculated.
" I eat I eat I swear," adding in an
undertone to Thorne :
"Damn it! Thorne 1 this is no joke,
this is a real leek ! Thome could hardly
utter the next words :
" Eat I pray you ! Will you have
more sauce to your leek ? There is not
enough leek to swear by!"
Poor Bishop, still weeping and boiling
with rage. Went on 5 " Quiet thy cud
gel? Thou dost see I eat."
Thorne, choking with laughter, finished
his part of the dialogue with difficulty,
and amid shouts of laughter made his ex
it. Fortunately he goes off on one side
and Pistol on the other. - When Bishop
sprang up and roared out as he rushed off :
" All hell shall stir for this J" he
brought down the house, behind the
scenes as well as before the curtain.

Matrimonial Slaver j The Estimate of
a California Wife.
The following unique card appears in
the ban Jose (UaL.) fatrxot:
All persons are hereby warned not to
trust Mary E. Aborns (my wife), as she
has left my bed and board without just
cause or provocation, and I will not pay
any om contracted by her irom and alter
mis aaxe. iIobhabobsb.
San Jose, February 6th, 1875.
Mrs. Aborns now comes to the front
and makes the following statement in re
ply to the above ''warning" byhernon-
credinng liege lord:
The above notice now appears daily in
the San Jose Patriot. Why am I thus
published to the world! And what hu
man being on earth has the right to do
it? Let us look at the facts. I have
been the wife of John Aborns about ten
years, and lived with him during the
whole of the time the prime of my life.
That makes 3,650 days. During that
time I have cooked about 10,000 meals
of victuals, set the table as many times,
cleared it off and washed the dishes.
During those ten years I have spent be
tween ten and fifteen thousand hours
over a red-hot cooking stove, both in
summer and winter. I have cleared up
and swept his house for him over ten
thousand times. During that ten years
I have borne to him six children, five of
them now living, the youngest two and a
half years old. Besides the pains and anx
ieties incident to child-birth (which every
mother knows) what steps, cares and
troubles (to say nothing of sickness and
anxious thoughts for my children) it has
cost me to bring them up, it is impossible
for me to say ; every mother knows it
better than she can possibly tell it. In
addition to that I have made all their
clothing (besides my own), and during
that time I have made clothing and done
sewing for others for money, which went
into the community funds ; that is, as I
understand it, all the property
made by the husband and wife
is community property, but in re
ality belongs ' to the husband, and it is
called in law " community property," to
take off the sharp edge of injustice.
More than that, during those ten years I
have milked, on a average, three cows
twice a day, which will make about 7,000
milkings, besides taking care of the milk
and making butter from it. I have, dar
ing the whole of that time, attended to
the poultry, and often have assisted Mr.
Aborns in loading hay, sewing sacks, and
even cleaning out stables. Now, I have
drawn the picture very mildly. I have
made allowance for my sickness, when I
have had help, something after the
fashion that a farmer would hire a horse
if his own was sick and unable to work.
I had nothing when I went there, and
have nothing at the end of those ten
years of servitude. I have lived, it is
true, and was moderately iurmsuea witn
clothing. This is all for my labor.
What men is there in the world that
would do the work that I have done for
the same compensation S I make this
statement not out of any feeling of re
venge to Mr. Aborns, for he lias only
done what hundreds of cfiiiers heve done.
In many respects he is a good man, in-
dustriom, and like hundreds yea, thou- I
sands faonest with every one except his j
own faa&ily. I (Sioose to live with him
no longer; my reasons are my own, and :
1 say again what right tons he to impair
my credit by publishing me ? In the
name off all that is just I solemnly pro
test against it. Masv E. Aborns.
