Mister Triiilcr can you tell us,
Tell us something in your paper,
In your " Border Ruffian" paper,
Where are all the freedom shriekers?
Those who shrieked so, last November ;
Shrieked for Freedom and Fremont ;
Shrieked so loud for Northern vengence,
On the heads of Pierce and Douglas,
On our Democratic brethren,
North and South who would not yote for
The great lord of Mariposa,
And the perjured Traitor Bissell ?
Where are all the correspondents,
Of the old drab-coaled Greeley?
They who penned such tales of horror ;
Tales of rapine, rape and murder; '
Tales, which make the life blood curdle
In the souls of those who believed them?
What's become of " bleeding Kansas ?"
Where the bleeding bones of Martyrs ?
Martyrs sent by Parson Beecher,
Armed with pistols and Sharp's Rifles ;
Sent to kill tho Border Ruffians ;
Sent to stir up strife and discord,
'Gainst the laws and Constitution I
Where are now the chains and fetters,
And great balls that were to punish,
All who dared to speak of Freedom
On the virgin soil of Kansas?
Where is the notorious Beecher?
Where Jim Lane, the doughty hero?
Where's the money, where's the money?
Coaxed by falsehood, from the pockets
Of the poor deluded people '
Who were moved by tales fictitious,
Tales of suffering and privation ;
Told by selfish, base impostors
Tims to part with hoarded treasure,
Hopingto assist the needy ?
All is vanished I Peace and quiet,
Reigns supreme, where all was discord)
Few who vent their curse and hatred,
On the heads of Pierce and Buck ; 1 , , ,
Though Fremont has been defeated,
And the Sage of Wheatland chosen.
' Then loud let's sound the clarion!
Proud on high our banner's wavingl
Democrats will shield the Union,
And our glorious Constitution,
From the Traitor's touch forever 1
A Chapter in Human lYadirc.
A correspondent of the Blair County
(Pa.) Wiig, furnishes that paper with
the particulars of the following interest
ing incident,' of which he was an eye-wit
ness. It occurred a few years ago, on the
line of one of the great internal improve
ments of that State. It is one of those
scenes of genuine kind heartedness which
fills the mind with the involuntary con
sciousness that there is " someihin?; of the
angel still in our. common nature."
At tho point on this side of the mount
a in, where occurred the transhipment of
passengers from the e t, was moored
cunul bout, waiting the arrival of the train,
ere starting on its way to the east. , The
captain of the boat, a tall, sun-browned,
rough, and sometimes profane man, stood
by his craft, superintending the labors of
his men, when the cars cumc up, and
few moments after, a party of about half
a dozen gentlemen came up, and deliber
ately walked up to the capiuiu and ad
dressed him :
air, we wi.--n to go on east, but our
further progress to-day depends on you
In the cars we have jurt lelt, there is a
sick muii, whoso presence is disagreeable.
We have been appointed a committee by
the passenger, to ask that you will deny
this man a passage in your boat. If ho
goes, wa remain ; what say you ?"
, By this time other hud coino from the
" Gentlemen," said the captain
have heard the passengers through your
coiumittei;. lias the sick man a repre
tentative here T I wish to hear both siJe
of the question."
To this unexpected interrogatory there
was nu answer; when, without a moment .
puue, tne captum bussr.i owr lo the car
and entering, beheld io one corner, a poor
emaciated, worn-out creature, wbost) life
wus nearly eaten up by tho fell-destroyer,
consumption. The mans head was bow
eu in ins iiuius, ana ho was weeping.
The captain advanced and spoke to him
" Oh, sir 1" said the treiublin; invalid
looking up, his face now lit with hope and
expectation, " are yo the captain, and
1 you take me ! Tho passenger "huo

" You shall go," replied tlio raplain, " if

Uy this time the wholu crowd nf pus-

with their rrnggago piled up on the tow
path, and they themselves awaiting tho tie-

A moment more nnu that ilecision was
made known, as they beheld him come
from hc cars, with tho sick man cradled
his ntroiiir arms. Tumiing directly
through the crowd with his dying harden,
le ordered a matrnss lo be spread in tlio
choicest part of the cabin, where he laid
the invalid with ail the care of a parent.
Then, scarcely deinnins to look at the
crowd alongsido, ho shouted to his hands:
" J'ut olt tho bout !"
But a feelitijr seemed to possess the as
tonished passengers that of uhnnie and
contrition nt their inhumanity. With one
common impulse, cai;h seized his own bag
gage and walked iinmcumtely on board
In a short timo another committee was
sent to the captain, asking hit presence
in the cabin.
lie went, and from their midst there
arose a white-haired man, who, with the
tear drops starting in his eyes, told that
roup-h and sturdy captain, that ho had
taught them a lesson, that they felt bum'
led before him and they asked his for-
Riveness. It was a touching scene, me
fountains of true sympathy were broken
tip in the heart of nature, and its waters
welled tip, chokeintr the utterance of all
Un the instant, a purse was inado up
for the sick man, with a fervent "uod
speed his welfare."
Th trm hearted captain of tho Imat
was Samuel D. Cams.
The Memoirs of Sir Charles Napier,
just published in Englaud, contain many
passages interesting to Americans.. We
select a couple of paragraphs : . . , ,
When at Bermuda, in 1818, with Ins
regiment, Colonel Napier, willing to his
mother, says: "Two packets are due,
aud wo fear they have been taken; for
the Yankees swarm here, and when a
frigate goes out to drive them olf, by Jove,
they taku her ! Yankees fight well, and
are gentlemen in their mode of warfare.
Decatur refused Cardon aword, saying,
" Sir, yon have used it so well, I should be
asliamed to take it from you " These
Yankees, though so much abused, are
really fine fellows. One, an acquaint
ance of mine, has just got the Macedoni
an ; he was hero a prisoner, and dined
with mo ; he had taken ono of our ships,
but was himself captured by the Poictiers,
seventy-four ; being now in an English
frigate, if he meets us we must take him,
or we are : no longer sovereigns of tho
, From Bermudu, Charles Napier sailed
for America, and became engaged m
some oi tne curing ana disastrous opera
tions carried on against the Americans by
the government of Which lung Ueorge
III. exercised a despotic power. . ilie
bush method of warfare struck him as
cowardly, and as for the system of load
ing ennnon to the mouth with odds and
ends of old iron, it was his abhorrence :
' Seven thousand men are at Biitirnore,
and we have no sm b force J still my opin
ion is, that if we tuck up our sleeves aud
ay our ears back we may thrash them ;
that is, if we caught them out of their
trees, so as to slap at them with the Bay
onet. 1 hey wil( not stand that. But
they fight unfairly, firing gagged, pieces
of iron and every sort nf devilment; nails.
broken pokers, old lock of guns, cun
barrels, every thing that will do mischief.
On board a twenty gun ship that we took,
I found this sort of amunition regularly
prepared. This is wrong. Man delights
to be killed according to ihc Jaws of ua
tio'n?, and nothing is so pleasant aud cor
reel ; but to be Joined against all rule is
quite otreuKive. We don't (hen ki k like
gentlemen. A twenty-four pound shot in
the stomach is line; we die heroically;
but a bras candlestick for stuffing, with a
garni.iV of twopenny nni!, make ns die
ungenteelly, and with the fholie.

Ilotv lo fall Asleep. , .
The creat point to be eaincd in order
to socuro sleep is escape from thought
especially from that clinging, tenacious,
imperious thought, which, in most cases
of wakefulness, has possesion til the mind.
I always effect this by tho following sim
ple process: I turn my eye balls as far
to tho riirht or left, or upward or down
ward as I can without pain, and then
commence rolling them slowly, with that
diveriremo from a direct lino of vision
around in their sockets, nnd coutinu do
ing this until I fall asleep; which occurs
generally within three minutes, nnd al
ways within five at most. The immediate
effect of this procedure, differs from that
of any other which 1 ever heard, lo pro
cure sleep. It not merely diverts thought
into a new channel, but actually suspends it
Sinco I became aware of this, I have
endeavored innumerable times,' while
thus rolling my eyes, to think upon a par
titular subject, mid even upon thut which
before kept me awake, but I could not.
As long as they were moving around my
mind was a blank. If any one doubt
this," let him try the experiment for him
self. . I wish he would ; let him pause
just here and make it. I venture to as
sure him that if he makes it in good faith,
in ihe manner described, the promise of
" a penny for his thoughts," or for each
of them, while the operation is in prog
ress, will add very little to his wealth.
Such Icing its effect, we cannot wonder
that it should bring sleep to a nervous and
wakeful man at night. ThG philosophy
of the matter is very simple. 'A suspen
sion of thought is to the mind what a bus
Gision of travel or labor is to the weary
y. It enjoys the luxury of rest ; the
strain upon its faculties removed, it falls
asleep as naturally as the farmer in his
chair after toiling all day in his fields. - :

A Noble Act. '
From the Manitowae Herald we learn
that the recent rains have swollen the
streams in that and neighboring coun i is to
an almost unprecedented height.; On thq
17th inst. the bridge and dam across Mul
let river, at Greenbush; eighteen miles'
west of Sheboygan, were swept awayi
The stage, which crosses the river at that
point,, was . consequently detained, ami
while waning, a . passenger by the name
of Abbott, witnessed, and gives an account
of the following accident and rescue of ft
inte girl, lie says: vi... ..i
' A stick of timber bad been thrown.
across tho stream, for the temporary use
of foot passengers, and upon which a lit
tle girl, about twelve years of age, at
tempted to cross.- About mid-way. she
lost her foot-hold, and fell in the stream.'
The water was deep, the current very
strong, and she was swept downward with
great rapidity. Almost at the same in
stant a young man, by the1 name or tjco.
Harrington, sprang into tho river, and af-
ter a severe struggle with the tide', suc
ceeded in reaching her, and with much
difficulty brought her saN to the shore,.
amid the shouts and congratulations of a
crowd of spectators, who knew better howr
to appreciate a noble action than to per
form it. The little girl is about twelve-
years old, and this, her first lost of tho.
narrow and treachorous bridge, wag made,
from necessity, in returning from school.
Young Harrington is a farmer and resides
near Greenbush. : I lis noble and disinter,
ested conduct is the more commendable, in
asinuch as the assistance was promptly
rendered, and without such doubts and re
flections as would have caused many a
stout heart to hesitate. ' ' . -.. -
