Thou wert a lovely blooming flower, 

E’eo to a strangei'* view; 

Thine infant wavs had witching power, 

Our darling little Sue. 

A baby form is vety lair. 

With eyes of melting bln**; 

Hut thine had beauties still more rare. 

Oar dark eyed Utile Sue. 

And passing from this wcarv jife, 

While yet its days were few. 

Thou ’at passed from many a painful strife, 

Our precious little Sue. 

In Greenwood’s shade, where tall trees wave,— 
With sunlight glancing through 

Their leafy boughs, upon thy grave— 

Thou’rt sleeping, little Sue. 

When e’er we call our lost ones o\r. 

Our memory, fond and true, 

Will echo in our cars once mote 
The name of little Sue. 

And though the hut tears dim our eye*. 

Our faith entire and true, 

Shows a fair home beyond (he skies 
Where dwells our little Sue-

For the Lebanon Post. 


Perhaps since the first settlement of the 
country, no question of equal importance 
has been brought before the people of Ma- 
rion county. Who is capable of telling us I , 11 “ay™, 

all the benefits to be derived from T I 7 ‘fe, w ho was a business woman he fam 

left him by his father. It was good land, 
but the fences w ere not in repair, and ev- 
erybody’s cat tle roamed through the fields 
and Raymond’s crops were not sufficient 

fear there is not one among us competent 
to the task. 

The question now is; can we do without 
a Railroad? and what are we loosing an- 
nually for the want of one? I will give 
a few items — we are paying to Louisville j 
$18,000 a year for killing and packing 
hogs — we are also pay in $8000 a year 
more for salt, than we need pay, on ac- 
count of the expense of hauling in wag- 
ons,  $-c. — we are paying a like sura for 
sugar, coffee, iron, &c., ifcc., amounting to 
$34,000 in all. In addition to this, in the 
article of corn, on every barrel sold the 

mount of surplus corn in the county nt 10, 
000 barrels, you find 
$10,000 on this article.

to warm her hands which had become 
thoroughly chilled by the cold handle of 
the pitchfork, with which she had been 
throwing hay and straw to the cattle. 

It might be supposed that these occur- 
rences took place early in the morning — 
not so. It was ten o’clock when Ray- 
mond Warren left his bed. His wife had 

ed to complain, and silently lie ventured 
to explore the cubboard for a crust on 
which to satisfy tlm knawings of his appe- 
tite. Not a crumb was there. It was 
evident this his wife had designed that he 
should go to bed supperless; and supper- 
less to bed he did go. grieving over his 
hard lot. He had never before been so 
badly treated, and he thought it indeed 
distressing, but yet his disappointment, was 
not sad enough to revolutionize his consli-

A Friend to Mario . County. 

About 150 years ago the people in 
England destroyed the turnpike gates be- 
cause they were taxed in the shape of tolls; j 
now all the roads in England are turn- 
piked. The price of agricultural products 
are greatly increased where there are not 
good roads. A man went on the Conti- 
nent to see what stores of wheat

ed to their wants herself. 

Raymond’s first salutation to her as she 
stood by the fire was, 

“I wish I had some tea, Sally — butnev-|y° ar . su PP er ' 
er mind, you’ve put the things away — a 
little warm water, with a little milk and 
sugar in it, will do just as well, and while 
you’re about it, you may get me a little 
piece of bread; but just as you choose; no 
matter about it anyhow, ’Taint every 
man’s got, such a woman fora wife.” She 
might have answered: 

“It is not every woman that has such a 
a husband.”

which had been sawed for him — of course 
Raymond went, and his wife was compel- 
led to cut wood enough to keep the house 
warm until the following day. 

Mrs. Warren was in appearence, a fee- 
ble woman, but she had endured hardships 
which would have destroyed the constitu- 
tion of one more robust. Day after day 
her strength failed her, yet she made no 
complaint. Raymond saw that she grew 
pale, and was often disturbed with fears 
in regard to her, but he was too easy to 
mention the subject, and the useful wife 
became more and more feeble, until she

The Four Master Spirits. 

Happening to cast my eyes over the port- 
raits in a gallery of paintings, I remarked 
that they were so arranged as to give four 
personages — Alexander, Hanibal, Caesar 
and Buonaparte — the most conspicuous 
places. I had seen the same before; but 
never did a similar train of reflection arise 
in my bosom, as when my mind now has- 
tily glanced over their several histories.. 

Alexander, having climbed the dizzy 
heights of ambition, and with his temples 
bound with the chaplets dippped in tin- 
blood of countless nations, looked down 
upon a conquered world, and wept that 
there was not another to conquer, set n 
city on fire, and died in a disgraceful scene 
of debauch. 

Hanibal, after having, to thc astonish- 
ment and consternation of Rome, passed 
the Alps, and having put to flight the ar- 
mies of this “mistress,” and stripped three 
bushels of gold rings from the fingers of 
her slaughtered knights, and made her 
very foundation quake — returned to his 
country, to be degraded, to be driven in 
exile, and to die at last by poison, admin- 
istered by his own hand, unlamcntcd, and 
unwept, in a foreign clime. 

Caesar, after having taken eight hun- 
dred cities, and dyed his garments in the 
blond of his fellow-men — al ter having pur- 
sued to death the only rival he had on 
earth — was assassinated by those he con- 
sidered his nearest friends, and at the very 
point in which lie had gained the highest 
object of his ambition. 

Buonaparte, whose mandate kings and 
priests obeyed, after having filled the 
earth with the terror of his name — after 
having deluged Europe with tears and 
blood, and clothed the world in sackcloth 
closed his days in lonely banishment, al- 
most exiled from the world; yet where he 
could sometimes see his country’s bamim-r 
waving over the deep, blit which would 
not, or could not, bring him aid. 

Thus, those four men, who from the 
peculiar situations of their portraits seem 
ed to stand as representatives of ull those 
whom the world calls “great,” those four 
who made the earth tremble to its centre 
— severally died — one by intoxication, 
the second by suicide, the third by assas- 
sination, and the last in lonely exile. 

How vain is the greatness of this world! 
How fearful is the gift of genius, if it be 
abused! Who, that is now living, would 
not rather die the death of the humble, 
righteous man, than that of Alexander, or 
Hannibal, or Caesar, or Buonaparte?

In this dispensation of Providence, we 
find another painful illustration of the 
great truth, that “God’s ways are higher 
than our ways, and his thoughts than our 
thoughts.” Why this family circle should 
be broken, mid the eldest boon laid in thc 
grave — just at the period when the gentle 
graces of childhood were assuming their 
perminent mould of loveliness and beauty, 
is knowledge too high for us to attain. It 
is enough for us to know, that “the Lord 
rcigneth.” Faith in God leads thc strick- 
en spirits of the bereaved to bow in res- 
ignation, and in filial submission exclaim — 
“not ours but thy will be done.” So far 
as we are permitted to judge, she gave her 
iicart, during her sickness, to Him who 
said “suffer little children to come unto 
me.” She was willing to die. Patiently 
she endured her suffering — sweetly, with- 
out a struggle, her spirit fled away — and

are respectfully referred lo the Superior advan- 
tages offered for FIREaml MARINE Insurance 
Py 1 the above named Company, which maintains 
its business as it has done during the last 2G 
years, upon a responsible and permanent basis. 
Annexed is an extract from Circular No. 4 L re- 
cently received from \\ . B. Robbins, Esq ., Gen- 
eral Agent of the Company for the Western aud 
Southern States. 


“Public attent ion has of late been called to the 
j monstrous indebtedness of certain Insurance 
‘-Companies, which lias resulted in their bankrup- 
cy. involving loss of premiums upon the uncx* 
pi red period ol risks, as well as more serious 
losses to Claimants, Stockholders, and Endor- 
sers. Tiic undersigned takes therefore a pecu- 
liar pleasure and pride in slating that the affairs 
of the “Old Protection Office,’ have never been 
in a more sound and prosperous condition than 
at the present time. The rejection of an im- 
1 mouse number of risks during the last six years 
which have been eagerly taken, at low rates, by 
our competitors, has exerted the most salutary 
affluence, and demonstrated the fact, long luce 
j advocated by us, that Insurance is not so much 
v. business cf chance asi generally supposed. — 
Its results are capable of being reduced, by dis- 
cretion and experience, to an almost scientific 
exactness, aud an average of titnust^r® aeefe rial ti- 
ed, which is subject to but slight and uu impor- 
tant variations.

This fact is familiar to ev rv matron in our land, 
and physicians often prescribe it in different 
forms for a variety of complaints. Pur, also, lias

alone. In other hands, again, it was m arly

Note the Bright Hours Only. 

A lceson in iteclf eublitm*, 

A lesson worth enshrining, 

Is this: “I take no heed ol time; 

Save when the sun is shilling. ’* 

The*c motto words a dial bore, 

And wisdom never teaches 
To human hearts a better loro 

Phan this short sentence preaches, 

As life is sometime bright and fair, 
And sometimes dark and lonely, 
Let us forget its pain and cure, 

And note its bright hours only. 

There is no grove on earth’s broad chart 
But has some bird to cheer it; * 

So hope sings on, in every heart, 
Although we may uot hear it; 

And if to-duy the heavy wing 
Of sorrow is oppressing, 

Perchance to-morrow’s sun will bring 
The weary heart a blessing. 

Wc bid the joyous moments haste, 

And then forget their glitter; 

We take the cup of life, and taste 
No portion but the bitter; 

But we should teach our hearts to deem 
Its sweetest drops the strongest; 

And pleasant hours should ever stem 
To linger round us longest. 

Though darkest shadows of the night, 
Arc just before the morning; 

Then let us wait the coming Tight, 

All boding phantoms scorning; 

And while we’re passing on the tide 
Of lime’s fast ebbing rivt*r, 

Lo'/s pluck the blossoms by its side. 

And bless the gracious giver, 

As life is sometimes bright and fuir, 
And sometimes dark and lonely. 
We should forget its pain and care, 
And note its bright hours only.

A Singular Combat 

The Devil at Bell's Wines. 

Angels and ministers of grace defend ns! 

15© thou a spirit of health or goblin damn’d, 

: Bri/ig with thee airs from heaven, or blasts from

i Be thy intents wicked orcharitable. 

Thou com'ai in such a questionable shape. 

That I will speak to thee. — [Shahespeare. 

For some weeks we have heard flout- 
ing rumors regarding sights seen, and 
strange sounds heard, at Bell’s Coal Mines, 
some fifty miles above this place, and in a 
paper published in that region we have 
i seen a mysterious intimation upon the 
same subject; but until Sunday last wc had 
received no reliable information regarding 
the matter. A gentleman just from the 
neighborhood of the Mines, has given us 
some authentic facts which are as strange 
as they are (said to be) true. 

It appears for a long time very unac- 
| countable noises have been heard in and 
around the mines, which increased as the 
\ miners approach in a certain direction, and 
ever and anon the earth heaved and trem- 
bled as if agonized by the throes of an 
i earthquake. This created considerable 
commotion among the bands, many of 
whom quit work and refused any longer to 
jdelvcinsuch a haunted spot. Finally, 
just as a party of miners were beginnin 
to cut into a new bank some considerable 
distance under the ground and a long ways 
from entrance, a large mass of diit and 
■ coal fell with an awful sound, and out 
j leaped a monster such as was never seen 
outside of the infernal regions before. — 

' The workman dispersed ns rapidly as if a 
| contribution box had been handed round, 
and all that day the most unearthly sounds 
were heard to issue from the smutty ca- 
[vein. About twelve o’clock at night the 
monster came out to take an airing, and 
pistols and guns were fired at him with no 
sort of effect. After a stroll of an hour 
or so he returned to his lair, and from the 
tracks which were followed next day, he 
must have passed over near fifty miles of 

Various efforts have been made to dis- 
1 1 lodge his monstership, and to kill or cap 

Desirous of seeing a combat between a 
snake and its inveterate enemy, the mun- 
goozc, an animal somewhat similar to the 
ichneumon of Egypt, 1 requested the 
charmer to exhibit a fight of the kind. 

11c instantly consented, as these men gen- 
erally carry snakes and mungoozc with 

them and led us out into the compound; {Jf m  but they arc all « n0 g0 .” The

Having expi eased out feats that some toob deliberate aim, but the bullets re -

sun, or a white gauze arouud the midnight 
moon, sporting in the cataracts, dancing _ 
in the hail showers, folding its bright snow j 
curtain softly about the wintry world, and A 
weaving the* many-colored iris, seraph’s 
zone of the sky, whose roof is the sun- 
beam of Heaven, all checked over with 
the celestial flowers by the mystic hand of 
refraction, still always it is beautiful — that | 
blessed life-water. No poison bubbles on 
its brink, its form brings not madness and 
murder, no blood stains its liquid glass; ' 
pale widows and orphans weep not burning U

ing ghost, from the grave, curses it in ]

demon’s drink — alcohol?” 

A shout, like the roar of the tempest, 
answered, “NO!”

The monster is described as a strange 
medley of man and beast., and of such 
conformation and attributes as can only be-

shines in the night like a great log of pho-

The Poor Tartar. 

When, in the tenth century, the Tartars j Dec -20 tf 
led by their chief, Batu Bhan, invaded 
Hungary, and King Cela was forced to 
flee from the disastrous battle at Sajo, des- 
pair seized upon the poor Hungarians. — 

Many had fallen on the field, still more 
were butchered by the faithless armyjsome 
sought escape, others apathetically await- 
ed their fate. Amongst these was a no- 
bleman, who lived retired on his proper- 
ty, distant from every high road, lie pos- 
sessed fine herds, stately horses, rich corn 
fields, and a well stocked house built but 
recently for the reception of his wife, who 
now for two years had been its mistress. 

The disheartening account of the gener- 
al misfortune bad reached his secluded 
shelter, and its peaceful lord was horrified. 

He trembled at every sound, at every step; 
lie found his meals less savory. His sleep 
was troubled; he often sighed and seemed 
quite lost and wretched. Thus anxiously 
anticipating the days to come, he sat at 
his well closed window, when suddenly 
a Tartar on his steed galloped into the 
court. The Hungarian bounced from bis 
seat, ran to meet his guest, and said: 

“Tartar, thou art my lord; I am thy 
servant; all thou seest is thine. Take what 
thou fanciest; I do not oppose thy power; 
command, thy servant obeys.” 

The Tartar impatiently sprang from his 
horse, entered the house, and cast a care- 
less glance on all the precious things a- 
round. His eye was fascinated by the 
brilliant beauty of the lady of the house, 
who appeared tastefully attired to greet 
him there, no less graciously than her con- 
sort had in the court below. 

The Tartar seized her without a mo- 
ment’s hesitation, and unheedful of her 
shrieks, swung himself upon his saddle 
and spurred away, carrying off his lovely 

All this was but a moment’s work, the 
nobleman was thunderstruck, yet be re- 
covered and hastened to the gate. He 
could hardly still distinguish the Tartar 
galloping in the distance, and bearing a- 
wav the lady. Her consort heaved a sigh 
and exclaimed with deep commiseration: 

•‘Alas, poor Tartar!"

No. 54 Gold street, New York, 
CONTINUE to publish the four lead-

they have recently commenced the publica- 
tion of a valuable Agricultural work, call- 
ed the 

By Henry Stephrns, F\ R. S., of Edin- 
burg, author of the “Book of the Farm,” 
Ac., Ac.: assisted by John P. Norton, 
M. A., New Haven, Piofessor of Scientific 
Agriculture in Yale College, Ac., Ac. 

This highly valuable work will comprise 
two large royal octavo volumes, containing 
over 1400 pages, with 18 or 20 splendid 
steel engravings, and more than 600 engra- 
vings on wood, in the highest style of the 
art, illustrating almost every implement of 
husbandry now in use by the best farmers, 
the best methods of plowing, planting, 
haying, harvesting, Ac., Ac., the various 
domestic animals in their highest perfec- 
tion; in short the pictorial feature of the 
book is unique, and will render it of incal- 
culable value to the student of Agricul- 

This work is being published in Semi- 
monthly Numbers, of 04 pages each, ex- 
clusive of the Steel engravings, and is sold 
at 25 cents each, or $5 for the entire work 
in numbers, of which there will be at least 

The British Periodicals lie-published 
are as follows, viz: 

The London Quarterly Review (Conserva- 

TJ*e Edinburg Review (Whig), 

The North . British Review (FYee-Church), 
The Westminster Review (Liberal), and 
Blackivood’s Edinburg Magazine (Tory). 

Although these works are dislingdished 
by the political shades above indicated, yet 
but a small portion of their contents is de- 
voted to political subjects. It is their lit- 
eracy character which gives them their 
chief value, and in that they stand con- 
fessedly far above all other journals of 
their class. Blackwood, still under the 
masterly guidance of Christopher North, 
maintains its ancient celebrity, and is, at 
this time, unusually attractive, from the se- 
rial works of Bulwer and other literary 
notables, written for that magazine, and 
first appearing in its columns both in Great 
Britain and in the United States. Such 
works as “The G'axtons” and “My New 
Novel,” (both by Bulwer), “My Peninsular 
Medal,” “The Green Hand,” and other se- 
rials, of which numerous rival editions are 
issued by the leading pubishers in this 
country, have to be reprinted by those 
publishers from the pages of Blackwood, 
after it has been issued by Messrs. 
Scott A Co., so that subscribers to the 
reprint of that Magazine may always rely 
on having the earliest reading of these 
fascinating tales.

Mr. Whitmore is an accomplished schol-
