Be ready, then, wi h wild honah To battle cr to die ; When Grant shall yield, the Northern Star Will lade from out the sky. Hurrah 1 Hurrah 1 Hurrah I Before as lie the rebel host, Tbeir watch fires we can see ; We laegb to hear the traitor's boast Of Southern victory. Three cheers for Grant, ani one more eheer Until the woods ring back ! Ah ! well the rebel chief may fear The blood-hound on his track. Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah! In freedom's cause our blades were drawn ; Tbe traitor yet shall feel Before the day of peaoe shall dawn now strung is Northern steel. Three chrers for Grant, my gallant men I Give three loud roaring cheers, Until tbe foe, within bis den Shall tremblo while he hears. Hurrah 1 Hurrah! Hurrah I Thus far we've come through fire and flood , Still turtbr on we ll press, Al'hougb the way be red with blood As tb-ough the wilderness. Thou chei-r, brave comrade, let the night King with your lou t hurrahs Fir Grant, w!it knows so wail to Sght, And for the rvrtpe tnd Stars. Hurrah! Ujrrah! Hurrah! "Polly's Old Sweetheart'" "No use tayitig any nor ?" 'Well, io tell you the truib, there's not money ecuugti left. .Of course, if he had io!d rue so before his deaih, I should have looked after the place, and made myself a tanner in station, as well as in work; but I really thought I s-liould be at le to play the pari of 'gentleman tiles,' nnd go hunm:g four days a week in the beason. . Now he's gone, iheie's not enough left to work the farm properly, let alone keepirg two or three fiue--kius to eat their htads off. Beside, 1 ciu t siand binff patronized. -Mel young Sir William ye&ieiuuy. 'Mr. hue, us-d to be Sam.' 'I've hard about the ttaie of affair ; if it will be of any service to you. I'll take the gray mare off' your hand at sixty.' Tnank you. Sir Wil liam Monk.' aid I, I'm much obliged ; but I've refused eighty for her once or twice.' Well, well, if vou like to end anything from the Tarrn up to the H jue. thr y .-hall take it at market rate?. Ii may Itelp you a bit, you know Mr. White. Thank you, Sir William Monk, said I. not very graieful, 1 in afraid, lie meant well, I dou t doubt; but, confound it, I can't eland being patronized by a man I was band-and'glove with ; so I must go and see whether the fsun shines any brighter the other side of the world." "iou might, you know, bam, put tue screw on for a year or iwo " "That's true enough ; but I can t load up manure carts here with all the people lookiDg on. No, I shall go 1 know a little ubut cattle." Almost too much. Sam.'' Dou't laugh at me, Nunky ; on my life, she was all right when you had her." Yes, and went dead two days after ward. Oh, Sam! you shoulJ have spared me." "So I would have done, only you in sisted on having her." 'Well, perhaps, I did; but you cer tainly hid got hr into a very fine form when the came, and I wouldn't lake twice the money for her now." We-ll, you see I have a prospect ; and I'm offcext week." "What will Polly say?" Ah ! poor linle Poliy ! Here she is." "Polly. Sam's going io Australia next week. Ke won't be able to marry you before he goes." I shouldn't like to be married before he goes. I shall ouly be eleven next binhday, and mama says people oQght not to be married till they're eigh'eeu or nineteen, or morel so I'll wan till he Comes back." "But suppose I never came back, Polly?" Tnen 1 won't marry any one at all." "Never?" "No; never. You aid I was to be your little wife when I gave you flowers and .-ewed the butiu on yur coat. You look off the little gold medal with a hole in it, from your watch chain, to pay me. So it's all settled, aud I shan't marry any one elee. You mui colne and fetch me wht-u I'm old enough." 'O;.. it will be no ue ; you'll be mar ried io Frank Monk, aud be a lady theu." What! that elupsd boy? I hale him! Last time he was hre te pushed in the eyes of my baby-doll, and melied her poor nose against the kitchen-bars No; I never will marry a cruel boy like tnai. He might poke my eyes in with Sis dir ty fiugers " Well, well Polly ; I'll come back, if you'll wan tor me, ihen." Of course I will. When are you going?" Next week. I'll bring you a keep sake before I go." "I don't want anything, Sam, except it "Well? 'Except?'" "I was going to av if I might have Gip.' only to take care of for you, you know." Have him?' I shall be only too glad to find so kind a little mistress for him, I'll bring him down next time I come. Good-by, Pohy. Of course, as you're my 'little wife,' I must kiss you." "Of courte you must, Sam." "Gip" was duly brought down, and after a long leave-taking, Sam was gone. When Polly had dried her eyes she eaid : Mama, what's that ring on your fin ger ? cot the wedding one the other ?" That's a keeper." "No, not that; the one with an emer aid in it?" "That's what papa gave to me when I was en?aged 'o him. : "What for?" 'I don't know ; because it's customary to wear one, I suppose." "Don't you think Sam ought to have given me one mnma so as to show ev erybody I'm engaged ?" "Bless the child ! He's nearly old enough to be your faiher. Run along and finish your sewing. "Nevei- mind mama, I've got the little gold medal withn hole ia it, and I can show theai that, caa'i I?" ' - Mr. HaUtead's been again to-day. That's the fourth time this week. VVhai on earib does he want here?" "To tell you the truth. I think he wants Polly." Oh. indeed! Our little Polly, too " "Now, John! 'Little Polly !' She's very well-grown girl, and was twenty two yesterday." "Twenty-two ! How time flies ! It seems but a little while since Sam White went away, and yet it must be twwlve years." 'We ought to have a letter this mail ; it's nearly six months since the last, John. I wish that he would not write at all; that girl WilT never get settled through that uon-sense. She'll wait and wait, and then he'll bring a wife home." "There's no hurry. Bless my heart, wife ! Why you were 6even-and-twenty when I married you." "That was your fault. I was quite ready and willing years before, if you'd only spoken up live a man." "I tell you what, wife, it a a serious thing this proposing." "Well, I htpa the result has proved as pleasant as the prospect was serious." "All right, oJd lady. all right ! There not much to grumble at." Why any spectator, had there been one, should have seen Mrs. Hazeel sit ting on her husband's knee with her arm round his neck and tears in her eyes, I don't know ; but so it was. But about Mr. Hahid, John ? ' "Well, my denr, if he speaks to me as, I suppose, being a curate, he will I shall give him leaf to spea'j to her. . I need notltsk what you wouid do. I know that every woman would like to have one of her daughters married to a par son, though I'm sure I don't know why." "They're very nice people, John that s why; much buer thau stupid farmers." ',Uh ! Why didn t you marry a curaie, then you had iwo chances?" "Because because I preferred a stupid, pipe-smoking farmer, like a foo like a wise woman, John, dear." All right, old lady, I'll give my con sent." In due time consent was asked anil given, and Polly refused the, curate, ten derly aud kindly; offering hira sisterly affeciion, whicrt was noi exactly what he warned. And he laid his plaint before her father. "She says she's engaged, sir, and showed me a medal." And thereupon explanations were given, and the curate went home worse tnau ever ; so bad. indeed, that in three months' time, being of good family, he was obliged to be consoled by one of seven girls at the vicarage, aLd as no body said anything about his little affiir at the farm, Polly attended in a sisterly way as one. of the brides maids, as "it would not do, you know, to have only sis ters, though there are six of ihem." Another year went by, and Mrs. Ha zeel had hr-.r way ; there was no leuer front Sam. Farmers and doctors, and another cu rate, oo. hacLjid se;ge to the fortress of Polly's heart, and been beaten off, and compelled lo'Vetreat iti despair. Polly was as bright and lively, and did up her abuudam hair in the same ravish ing masses as ever ; but she had no love for any one. Old "Gib," toothless and a little blind, used to trot about the place after her or be carried in her arms; but as for grief or care, Polly seemed to know ineta not. At lasi her winter came. Who do you think has come back, Polly ?" "Sam." Yes and his wife." "No, faiher no don't say it. He would not could not after all these years." "Didn't I tell you so, Polly? I knew he would ; they always do bring back wives " "Are you sure. faher?" 'No ; out old Gaiherwool told me he saw them in the town. Sam, who has grown brown and bearded and stout, and a Utile foreign-looking woman, very young, with him." Poor Polly went to bed with a dread ful heartache after all these years ! Next morning they had harc"ly done breakfast when a chaise was driven up to the door by Sam himself, and a lady was in it. Poor Polly ran to the door with her fatber and mother to welcome him home. "Put your foot on the step, Nina." 'Yes, uncle," said Nina, wiih a slight ly foreign accent. Polly no sooner heard ths words than she ran away without a word and went up-stairs and had a good cry, and then came down all blushing and happy to see Sam. "What! This Polly? My little Polly! This fine, tall Hebe, my little Polly ? I don't believe it. Oh, Polly, how you have grown ! I suppose be won't mind my having a kiss after all ihese years, whoever he is;' and ihen he kissed trembling Polly on the cheek once and then talked to her father. He had forgotten all this stout, bear ded man who was as brown as a gipsey and looked as old as her father! Was it for this she had waited? This rough looking, loud-talking, smoke-smelling man this m as what she had waited thir teen yesrs for ! And this, his welcome! And then Polly was obliged to think of her little guest. Who was Nina ? Well, Nina was Nina. Well, then, she was, wiih her father and mother, a child then of three years old, on board the ship going out. and took a fancy ta Sam and Sam to her; and when the ship was wrecked off Cape Patton he had managed to swim to shore with her. The father and mother were both drowned, and the child thus saved became his. and he took care of it ; and this was Nina his little niece or daugh ter, and nurse and everything. Old. Mr. Hazeel insisted on their stay ing until they could move to the old place, bought by S.tm, and so they used to idle a-vay the tints, those three drones, all day long. Nina, as became her Italian nature, could do nothing but gather flowers and sing and dress herself; and Sam eaid he had worked so hard on land, he wan ted a land holiday as well as a rea one ; and then Nina wanted taking care of. and Polly went with them. After a little, Sam got cross, and ate nothing, and took long walks, and long ride, and drank vinegar, and talked in a low tone of voice, and stammered, and blushed, and then left off kissing Polly at night, and ihn left off kissing Polly at all, and then, one day, Polly found herself cry ing in his arra3, with her tears being kissed away, before she well knew how she had come there ; and after that Sam talked loud, and smoked, and left off drinking vinegar, and behaved again like a rational being, so much so thai one day he was allowed to take Polly to church, and have an interview with the minister, after which they wrote iheir names in a book, and ihe bells rang, as if no namenTad ever been written in the book before. It happened some weeks after this, as Polly and Sam were sitting on the beach, that Polly said : "Sam, dear, I want to ask you one thing." "Well, Polly?" When did you first think you know after you came home?" "Well, do you remember one day Nina and I were silting down on the garden seat, and you came to fetch U3 into tea, with old Gip trotting after you, and Nina was making me up a bunch of flowers?" "Yes, Sam, I remember'" "Well, dear, I asked you for a flower." "Yes, I remember." And you plucked a rose with a leaf, and " Put it in your coat. Was it then ?" "Yes, Polly, it was when you came so close to me that I could almost hear your heart beating. I made up my mind then, Polly, that I was not too old, and thai I might be happy again." . "And are you happy, Sara, dear ?" I don't think Polly heard Sam's ans wer very clearly ; but she seemed quite to understand that he was. An Editor ln Disgrace. The veteran of the lobby, Thurlow Weed, might get himself into as bad a scrape as he chose, and few would regrei it. But we confess some regret that the veteran editor. Weed, has got himself in so discreditable a fix. In his testimony he swears that he met ia a room wiih certain persons to talk about impeach ment ; that one of them had already pro posed to buy the votes of three Senators, and had thereupon been introduced by him to Collector gmythe a man who would be likely to have money to spend for lhat purpose One of these persons was a well known lobbyist, and connec ted with the whiskey ring; one' was an editor of ihe same paper with Mr. Weed, and also experienced in lobby matters; and the third was a United States rev enue officer. This precious quartette talked about getting money to influence votes, and Mr.. Weed uttered not a word of objeciion. They raised the money; communicated from time to time on the subject by telegraph to Mr. Weed, who states that he did for them what they asked, and knew that "it was about irn peachment," and finaly they succeeded, and Bent a jubilant dispatch. But Thur low Weed, admitting bo much, cannot perceive that his own integrity is in any way involved. Perhaps long experience has led him to look upon the buyer of perjured votes as a perfectly saintless person, and to ascribe all the blame to the worthless wretch who accepts the bribe ! There are not many men in the country, let us hope, who would be will ing to be known as having been concern ed in snch a transaction. A Litchfield Democrat lately ordered his Republican paper discontinued, but it kept coming. One of his friends sug gested that they were trying io make a Republican of him. "Well," said he, "they'll find out they're casting pearls before swine." Vallacdigham is proud of his record. Earnest Thoashis. From discourses, by James Hamilton, D. D. of London: Those of you who are familiar with the shore, may have seen attached to the inundated reef a creature whether a plant or animal you could scarcely tell rooted to the rocks as a plant might be, and twirling its long teniacula as an an imal would do. Tnis plaui-animal's life i9 somewhat monotonous, for is has nothing to do but grow and twirl its feelers, float in the tide, or fold itself up on its fool stalk when that tide has re ceded, for months and years together. Now, would it not be very dismal to be transformed into a zoophyte ? But what better is the life you are spontaneously leading? What greaier variety marks your existence than checkers the life of the sea-anemone? Does not one day fbat over you after auoth-jr, just as the tide floats over it, and find you much the same, and vegetating still? Are you more useful? What real service to others did you render yesterday ? What tangibb amount of occupation did you overtake in ihe one hundred and sixty eight hours of which last week consis ted ? And what higher end ia living have you than ih polypus ? Amidst the importunate solicitation? of daily business, many of us must accuse ourselves cf unfaithfulness to the dead; and when tranquil moments call up their familliar imiges, we marvel ho.v we can deal so treacherously with the great arid good departed. Vanished from our view, expunged from our correspondence dropped from our very prayers no longer expected as visitors in our home3, it i3 marvellous how faint and intermitting their memory has grown; and we up braid our ungrateful fancy that it pre serves so liule space for old benefactors and the once-cherished friends of our bo som. But the same fate awaits our selves, we too are going hence, and when we aro gone, "A few will weep a little while, Then bless our memory with a smila." One or two may cling to it with tender fondness, while existence last? ; but even with friends affectionate and true, ten derness will soon soften into resignation, and resignation will subside into content ment will dull away into sheer forget fulness. An Eloquent Appeal to Soldiers. The following extract from the call of iho Soldiers' and Sailors' National Ex ecutive Committee for the Convention which assembled at Chicago on Tuesday last, is as pertinent now as before the Convention: "Treason defeated in the field must not rule at ihe ballot box. "Opposed to you are arrayed the late Confederate army of th3 South, and their more treacherous allies, the Cop perheads of the North. They conjointly seek to distract and divide the friends of the Union. "But yesterday they were using the bullet to overthrow ihe Government ; to day they are using the ballot to control it. "They fought ;o keep the rebellious States out of ihe Union ; they ere now voting to accomplish the same results. "They would make loyalty a crime and treason respectable. "They would.dishonor the loyal living and make infamous the memory of the patriot dead. "They have organized midnight Klans." and made assassination a trade. "They have revived the spirit of the rebellion, and renewed its atrocities and crimes. Those enemies of the North who are ready to clasp the hands cf unrepented rebels in the Souih have persistently opposed you through the war. "They discouraged enlistments, leav ing you unsupported in the most trying exigencies. They libelled the national credit, that they might diminish the sinews of war and subject ycu to privat ions and hardships; as mobs they fought against you in our streets, diverting the troops needed in the field to watch and restrain their p:otticg3. Tcey have closed the door of public office against the wounded soldiers, and opened it to the scurvy politicians. "Comrades, you are the victims of th&se malign and treacherous influences; yours is the power to correct thm. "Let the same epiri: that guided you in war counsel ou in peace. "We urge upon you unity and action. "The loyal strength of the nation' must move and act with unbroken col umns, and newer victories will reward the same cause for which you have made so many sacrifices." A Democratic minister, who ha Democratic measles bad.y, has arranged a new version of the Lord's Prayer, which he thinks a great improvement : "Our white Father, who art in a white heaven: hallowed be Thy white name. Thy white kingdom come; Thy white will be. done ; give us this day cur white bread, and forgive our white brethren who differ from us. and carry out Tby curse on the colored population. Lead us into white temptation to oppress the blacks, and deliver us from Republican and negro evils ; for Thine is the whim kingdom; Thine is the white power; Thine is the white glory, for ever and ever.

A few days sines Mr. Bjchanan bad an interview with hi attorney, H. C. Swarr, Es. Mr. Buchanan stated t-. him that he knew that his end was ap- ' proaching, and he directed his remains t ' be placed in the lots ha had purchased for lhat purpose in the "Woodw.trd HiU Cemetery." without any pomp or parade, ' and that the religious services of th 4 occasion should be performed by hi ' friend and neighbor, Rev.

Knowing him to be a member of th9 Masonic Order, and that it is usal for ' that Order to attend ihe funeral cf ita members, Mr. Svvarr asked him wheth er, if ihe Masonic and other cecities, , with the city authorities, desired to par ticipate in the ceremonies, it would ba agreeable to him to have them da so.

Died at Lis residence at Whsatlaud, Lan:s-dtir county Pennsylvania, On adding, "with the diy cf my death, now so near." During the conversation, ha said: "The principles of the Christian re ligion were instilied into my mind ia my youth, and from all I have observed and experienced in the long life Provid ence haiV'ouchsafed to me, I have only become more strengthened in the convict ion cf the divine character of the Sivior, and the power of atonement, through His redeeming grace and mercy." I have no fear of tha future. Pcjt eatity will do me justice. I have always felt, and still feel, tint I discharged every public duty imposed upon ma, con scientiously ; I have no regret for any publio act of my life, and history will viudicate my memory from every usi'ist aspersion " . The Rev. Dr Nevin, President cf Franklin and Marshall College, at Lan caster, preached the funeral sermon. He disclaimed any intention of pronounc ing cn ihe political policy of the deceased, claimed lhat it was too soon to judge it fairly, adding: "Whatever may be thought by others, now or hereafter, oi Mr. Buchanan's Presidential adminis'.ra noa on ihe eve of" the rebtjilijn, he him self never changed his mind in regard to the righteousness or wisdom cf tha course which he saw prop?r to pursue.
