I sit in the twilight dim,
At the close of an iJle day,
And hear the soft, sweet hymn
That rises far away,
, And dies on the eveniug air ; j
Oh, all djy long, they sing their son,
Who toil in the valley there. ;
But never a song sing I.
Sitting with folde i lan's;
The hours pass me by,
. Dropping tbeir golden sands;
And I list from day tu clay
To the tick, tick, toek, of the old brown clock,
Ticking my life away.
And I see the sunlight fade,
And I see the night come on
And then, in ttye gloom and shade,
. I weep for tUe day that is gone
Weep end wail in pain, -For
the unspent day that has Sown away
Aud Hill not come again. .
Another morning beams,
And I forget the last,
An J sit in my idle dreams,
Till the day in overpast
Oh, the toiler's heart is glad,
For the day is gone and the night eomcs on,
; But miue is sore and sad. '
For I dare not look behind ; .
No golden shining sheaves,
Cau I ever hope to find ;
Nothing but withered leaves,
Ah ! dreams are very sweet!
But will it please, if only these '
I lay at my Master' feet ?
And what will the Master say .
To dreams, and nothing more ?
Ob, idler all the day !
Think, ere tby life is o'er.
And the day grows late,
Oh, soul of sin ! will He let you in
There at the pearly gate?
Ob, idle heart, bewate !
On to the field of strife !
On to the valley there, ' . , . .
And live a useful life. ,
Upl do not wait a day !
For the old brown clck, with its tick, tock,
Is ticking jour life away.

The New York Tribune observes
that in tho present melancholy condi
tion of the ''Democratic" party, its
only possible hope of, anything never
so mildly glorious in the way of "vic
tory" is to rope in a few Republicans
of the softer sort. Under cover of
"The Labor Reformers," this little
game was lately tried in New Hamp
shire, as our readers know, with but
mitigated success. And now wc hear
from Cincinnati of "The .Democratic
Executive Uommittee trying some-
thing like the same expedient. At a
meeting of the Committee the other
ay, one Mr. Nietert moved that tho
coming Convention be called The
Democratic Citizens' Reform Conven
tion." Then indignantly sprang to his
.feet Mr Kraemer. "I am a Democrat,"
flaid K., "flfld I glory in the name. It
jgoes to my heart to see the glorious
old name discarded. liut the mover
of the resolution 4 explained: "We
peed Republican vote, We must have
Republican votes. Unless we get Re
publican votes, the party will go up in
ja balloon." "Now," sagaciously ob
:rved Mr.; Nietert, "Republicans will
not bite at the bare hoot ot an out-and
out Democratic Ticket, and wc prp-
pose to bait the hook with a so called
Dmocralkj Citizens' Reform Ticket."
The Committee voted so to 'bait the
hook," but they caught no gudgeons
Cincinnati went Republican by a Jarg-
ct majority than aver before.
A new tunnel under tb,e Thames has

dollars on each thousand dollars of

thousand is not very oppressive, on all
over five thousand ; and tho income
tax ceases Otis year.
From this exhibit appears that taxes
have alreadv been reduced to an ex
tent? which, considering the condition
of the countryt is very remarkable.
Further reductions can doubtless he
made, and the Republican party will
make them as rapidly as a due regard
fur the nublic credit will allow. " It

One day, however, he mtxdfy no demon-

It is a fact well known to those who
have given attention to this subject
that the influence exerted upon the
mind by a certain class of works is ul
most as enervating as indulgence in the
ordinary rounds ft diss! nation. A eon
firmed novel reader, one who has so ac
customed himself to the excitement
produced by reading works of fiction
and to the day-dreaming that is sure
to follow, is no more competent to hold

by the ' information they diffusa among
