YOU St MISSION'.
If you cannot on the ocean ,
Sail auionsr the swiftest fleet.
Rocking on the highest billows,
Laughing at the storm you meet,
You can stand araon; the sailors,
Anchored yet within the bay ;
You can lend a hand to help them
As they launch che boats away.
If you ire too weak to journey
Up the mountains, steep and high,
Ym can stand within the val!ey
Whi'e the multitudes go byj
You can chant in happy measures,
As they slowly pass along;
Though thsy may forget the singer,
They will hot forget the song.
If yon have not gold or silver
Eeiready to command,
If yon cannot toward the needy
Reach an ever open band;
You can visit the afflicted,
O'er the erring you can weep;
You can be a true disciple. !
Sitting at the Saviour' feet.
If you cannot in the conflict
Prove yourself a soMior tao, t
If. where fire and smoke are thickest,
There's no work ftr you to do, ,
lVha the battle-field i silent
You c;tn go with sil-nt tread;
You can bear away the wounded,
- Yuu can cover up the dead.

For some greater work to do ;

She will never come to you ;

Do not fear to do and dare;
If you want a field of labor
Yen can find it anywhere.

fit of what is called the "sujk.s" be
cause he was whipped, and in order to
convince him that he was jnstly and
necessarily punished his teacher had
recourse to the following argument:
"Well, Johnny, supposing you were
riding a big horse to water, and all at
enee the hore were to stop and refuse
to go any farther, wVt would you do4:'
Johnny stifled his sobs for a moment,

legal Teuder Cases.
A special dispatch from Washing
ton to a. Chicago paper, under dato of
the 11th iust , has tho following con
cerning the presentation of tho Legal
Tender cases in the Supreme Court :
There was a very lively scene in the
Supreme Court this morning, the old
est lawyers practising there having
witnessed nothing like ft in: their day.
It arose Jo connection with the legal
tender case, which it was expected
would be again argued on its merits.
At the proper hour, Mr. Potter, of
New York, who is counsel in one of
the cases on which the Court had con
sented to hear further argument, in ef
sect asked a postponement, for the rea
son that the senior counsel was engag
ed elsewhere, and others were absent
on account of illness.
The Attorney General responded
against postponement, and in the ( course
of his remarke spoke of the necessity
fur an early hearing and decision, be
cause the country is disturbed and will
continue . disturbed until the whole
question at issue is settled, lie also
alluded to the fact 'that these two cases
involve points somewhat like those in
the cases recently decided, and in re
ply to Potter, denied that any order
had ben wade which precluded a hear
ing on the point, then decided. The
Chief Justice here interrupted, to say
that, according to tjis recollection, such
an 'order had been made. This was
said with evident feeling, and Justice
Miller remarked with equal feeling
that he knew of no such order. ; Jus
tice Nelson came to the rescue of the
Chief Justice, and Justice Davis spoke
up that he concurred with Miller. The
Chief Justice repeated his statement
with , emphasis and hardly suppressed
pas-ion, and upon the sujnrcstion of
Judge Davis, who remarked that it was
not worth while to bandy words, it was
decided that the cases might go over
to next Monday. m The Attorney' Gen
eral meantime bowed to the recollec
tion of the Chief Justice, and merely
expressed his regret that in a . matter
of this importance there was no record.
1 he point on which this dispute, so
astonishing, iu the Supreme Court, came
up, seems to be whether there was or
was :not such an order made when
Kvarts was Attorney General, as pre
vents a further hearing on the ques
tion whether the Legal Tender Act aj
plies to debts contracted before its
A young lady being present with her
mother aud an "edicated" cousin at a

absolute imp ssiMlitv for me to ncr

brated a ped4l extremity."
Characteristic Here is a dis
patch said to have been sent from Prcs
iTlent Lincoln to Gen. Hooker: If
the head of Lee's army is at Martins
burg, and the tail of it on the Plank

pretty slim somewhere. CanU you

Some days ago, a bright little juveti
iiCj hve years of age,' named llosa, w
teased a good deal by a gentleman who
Cts the family; he wound np by say
ing, "Rosa, I don't love you." "Aa,
but you ve got to love me " said the
child. '-How so?" "Why," answered
llosa, "the Jsible says you must love
them that hate you, and that I am sure
1 hate you."

that "protection" compels a man or wo
man to pay twenty-one cents a yard for

for fourteen cents. Its own column of
prices current answered free trade ar
gument. ,; The same kind of calico
which protection makes o dear was
quoted at nine to ten cents. "
