God IMcsj You.
How sweetly fall those simple Words
Upon the human heart,
When frlemls lo'ijr Imund by ttrongeit ties
Arc doomed by fate to part.
You sadly press thc hand of thoie
Who tuu In love caress you,
And soul rcpontlve I! to soul,
In breathing out "God bleu you."
'God bls you." oh llonir months ngi
I heard the mnurnlul phrase,
When one whom I In childhood loved
Went from my dreamy case.
Now blinding tears fall thick nnd fait ;
I mourn my long lost tirasuri,
Whllechoa. of the heart bring back
Th'j (arcwcll prayer, "God bless you."
The mother sending forth her boy
To scenes untried and new,
Lisp not a studied stately speech,
Nor murmcra out "adlfu,"
She sadly saia. between her sobi.
"Whene'er misfortunes press you.
Come lo thy mother, Itor.come back,"
Then sadly slglu "God bless you."
"God Mesa you," more nt expressed
Than volumes without number,
Iterrnl we thus our trust In him,
Whose eyelids never slumber.
I nsk In parting no long speech,
Drawled out lu slmllcd measure,
I only ask the drar old words.
So tweet so and "God blrstyou."

This man, an ultra Copperhead, who

New York for iutldelity to the coun-
try in tho agony ol war, ii tho candl
date of the reactionists and rebels for
1'iesidcnt of tho United States. lie
was known during the struggle as one
of tho numerous class who wore in "fa
vor of the war but opposed to its pros
ecution." His piiuciplcs arc precNely
those ol l'ondletou and Vnlanillghani,
but he has more adroitness and plausibil
ity than those Democratic chatiipwn?.
Like them, he denied the constitution
nlity of coercion, and like them he
threw every possible obsticlo in the
way of prosecuting the war. We
know it is claimed by the "regenerated
Democracy" that when Governor ol
New York in 1803 ho liuniod fonvnrd
troops to repel Lee's invasion ot Penn
sylvania; but there was an obvious rea
son for this act of pretended patiiotism.
So long as the Held of war wrts the le
gion south of the l'otomac Seymour
opposed every measure for thu subju
gation of the icbels, but when tho con
flict was transferred to the State ol
Pennsylvania and Lee's army threaten
ed Philadelphia, Nuw York City and
the mansions of Goernor Seymour, he
was compelled lo act for thu defence
of his State. Thisouu instance of en
forced patiiolistu is the only one which
can bo named in Seymour's history.
So soon as Lee's army had been driven
back he iiiiuiedmtly began again to op
pose aud hinder tho olVuith ot tho Na
tional Government to put down thu
rebellion. Ilu tried to stop the diaft,
and thu tints of 180:1 nml tho murder

Mike Flak and the Bull.
Miko took a notion to go in swim
tning, and had just got his clothes off,
when he saw Deacon Smith's bull ma
king at him the bull was a vicious an
imal and had come hear killing twd'di '
thrco persons consequently Mike felt
rather 'strange.' Ho didn't wont to
call for help, for he was naked, nnd the'
nearest placo from whenco asststanco
could arrive was thu inecling-housc,
which was at iho time filled with wor
shipers, among whom was "tho gal
Mike was paying his devotion to." So
he dodged the bull as hu caniu at him,
and managed to catch him by thu tail.
Ho was dragged round lit nearly ifcad,
and when ho thought he could hold on
no longer, ho mado up his mind hu had '
better 'holler,' And now wo will let
him tell his own story:
'So looking at tho matter in all its
bearing, I cum to the conclusion that I
had belter let somebody know whar I
was. So I gin a yell louder than a lo
comotive whistle, nnd it wnrn't long
til I seed tho Deacon's two dogs a com
iug down like as II they were sccin
which could gel theru fust. I knowed
who they were after they'd jlue tho
bull agin me, I war sartin, for they
wnrorfiilly wcuotnous and had a spllo
aglu me. So, says I, old briudle, as ri
din is ns cheap as walkin on this routo
ii you havo no objections, I'll just tnko
a deck passage on thnt'ere back o'yourn. "
So I wasn't very long getting nstiido
him; then, if you'd bin thnr, you'd
hau sworn lhar wnrn't nothiii human
in that ar mix, thu sllu lluw so oi fully
as ths critter and I rolled round tho
Held ono dog ou thu ono sldo and ono
on the other trying to clinch my feet.
I prayed and ctWscd, and cilssed and.
prayed, until I couldn't tell which I
did at last and neither waru't of no
use, they wnr so orfullv mixed tin.
Well, I reckon I rid about half mi hour
this way when old briudle thought it
wnr time to stop mid tako in a supply
of wind, and'cool oil' a little. So when
ho got round lo a treu that stood thnr,
he naturally halted. So, sex I old boy
you losu ouu passenger, saitiu. So I
just dumb upon a branch, kalkurlatiu
lo roost lhar lilt 1 starved, aforu I'd bu
rid lotiud that ar way any longer. I
was iiiakin tracks for the lop of thu treo
when 1 heard somuthin maktii an orful
burziu over my head. .IJiiudur'lookcd
up, aud if there waru't well, llmr's no
lieu of sweat in now, but it war tho
biggest hornet's nest ever bill. You'll
'glu in' now, I icckuu, .Mike causo
there's no help for you. Hut mi idea
htiuuk iiiulheu, that I would stand a
heap better chaiieu lidiu thu bull than
nlinr I was. Se. I, old teller, If
yoy'll hold ou, I'll rldo to the next sta
tion, anyhow, let that bu whar it
will. So I jist dinpped uhoaid him
again, and looked aloll lo scu what I
hud gained by chniigiii qtimteis; ami
gentlemen, I'm a liar ll lhar waiu't
