Mother, once 1 read a story
Of a shell from ooean’s bed.
Carried far o’er land and water,*
By a stranger's band, ’tis said ;
Which, though long o'er dreary desert,
With its captor forced to roam,
Never ceased its wailing, sighing,
For its pearly ocean home.
So thy child, my precious mother,
Though be wanders far from thee,
In his heart is ever longing,
Longing by thy side to be;
I would hear thy loving counsel.
Feel thy tender sympathy;
Have thy soft and soothing accents
Iu my heart make melody.
When my day of toil is over,
And I lay me down to rest,
I would have thy loving fingers
Sm >oth the cover o'er my breast;
I would feel the gentle pressure
On ;njt hot and wearied brow,
Of th;- lips so pure and holy—
Ah, that joy has left mo now.
Mother, if in life’s hard battle,
I should quit me brave and woll,
And for God and man and country,
Do such deeds as shall excel;
It was you who shap'd my bearings
In my plastic infancy,
Under lLm who gave me being,
Mother, he tho praise to thee.

the moral forces is the printing press.
It has supplanted the ecclesiastic, the

despot, declaring war, concluding peace,
dictating treaties and deposing rulers.
There was a time when a republican

stipulated for the liberty of the press,
and the time may come when they will
require some safeguard against its des
