I saw in a moment that something was wrong, My rose dropped its beautiful head, Its leaves were uow colorless crushed and torn, Some also lay strewed on the bed. At a glance I discovered those drops formed a rill, And that rill from the caves fell so high, On its defenceless head it bowed aguiust its will And yielded to fule with a sigh. Alas!

ON .WHICH SIDE? , The democratic party huve taken up 1 1 , their position and nomiuated their cnudi 'J'' dates, and now, after all their bickering , are wbeoling into line to do battle for the rpoiln. They have learned of old that it ;-is the indispensable condition of success. that, when once th organization of the i . party has been effected in convention, all - ' must abide by the result and work in good fai.h for the common object. The Union party has had its candidates in the field now fur some niontho, its principles are authoritatively laid down, and, so far as depended upon its action, - the issue has been mado up. It has not , ,. been anxious to open the active canvass fuf it neither cared to distract .the attcu- ' tionofthe country from the military , campaign, nor to anticipate the. course to ' be pursued by its political opponents. In i this state of thing" the ordinary discipline of a political organization has been little thought of. We have seen . members of '- Congress while still assuming to restrr.in ; a connection with the supportors of tne Union, violently attacking" their candi ' (tales, public journals hinting at the ex- 7 pedieney of change, and politicians agi- x tating with little concealment the idea of new nomination and even ' working in -. their devious paths for that end. Instead of consolidating its strciigth in readiness for the straggle uow beginning, the union i- P7rtJ has even permitted the process - of ', disorganization to make some progress in '; t rank?,' and ban allowed a feeling of ; tmcertainty and doubt as to the finality -of the nominatiqt) to creep in, such as . betokened anything bat a suitable prep-- station far polictcal crisis like the pres-, 'one.- ; ' .

The notion of such a withdrawal, however, is utterly chimerical and preposterous. The majority who ominated Mr. Lincoln, with thn certain approval of the great mass of Union mon everywhere, cannot be' expected to find in the desires of a few poisons a reason for abandonicg a course which wus recommended by the broadest views of our national condition and neccssi;io. And it they could thua forego their settled conclusions, it is now too late to think of a change of front. 'The line of buttle are already drawn, the conflict ie already beginning, the shock and. crisis of the struggle are close at band, and we cannot now pause to make a new choice - of officers and a new plan of tactics. The moment has come when men must, dooida once for all, whether they will give to the good cause their full strength with a whole heart, or will renounae their fealty, we will not say to party, but to the Cause of their country. The Chicago party has set the alternative befotd us, the war for the Uuion uador Mr. Lincoln, or in armiBtiee, a disgraocful peaoe and almost certain disunion uuderGeneral McClellan. Thore is no third choice. . The people of the United States will not be slow in choosing thi former, and their wrath will not forget any man or any set of nicii who may seek to distract th.Jr judgment in making that choice. Boston Daily Advertisir. What tlie President Says About an Armistice The Draft, etc. ' (Horald-a Special.) 1 ' Washington, ?ept. 7. The President in a recent conversation with a Rcpubli can, said that an armistice once arranged for and granted from a Government to Rebels has never resulted otherwise than in the final acknowledgement of independence to the Rebels As, an. instance, Texas ws eventually acknowledged by Mexico. So nu armistice gran'ed to the Rebels would be sn ngrecmennt to. at some future time, acknowledge their independence.In regard to the draft he ' stated that in the first 9 days after'' the call, wa made, the average number of recruits throughout the whole country was about 200 per day, and in the ensuing 9 davs the miniherincaeaed to 30(1; the number in steadily increasing tfc must, he said do what wo can to encourage this. We shall probably let the draft dally along, enforcing it in a few localities where they do not show sufficient energy in recruiting, but doing all we can to en. courage those localities that get recruits with celerity. Ithab been decided to rescind the pro hibition of the exportation afnrm, and that the necessary order would be issued in a few days. Mr. Lincoln said be and Secretary Fessenden had many anxious discussions as to permitting and encouraging trade in cotton, and he thought that this was what they would decide upon, viz: Perfectly free trade in cotton, by individuals who pay for it in greenbacks. The army and navy to be direoted to protect and encourrge the trnde. so far ss conducted within our lines, only on the condition that all cotton should be shipped , to or through New York.thero to be inspected and pay the taxes on internal revenue. Economy In a Family. There is nothing which goes so tar toward placing young people beyond tha reach of poverty as economy in household affairs ' It matter not whether a man furnlslins little or much for his family, if there Is a continual leakage In his kitch en or parlor; it runs away he knows not how, and that. demon Waste orbs, More! like the horso-leaeh'a daughter, unil he that provides has no more to give. It is the husband's duty to Wing into- the house, . and it is the duty of the wffe to Bee that nothing goes wrongly out of it. A man gels a wife to look after his affairs, and to assist him in his journey through life; to educate and prepare their children for a proper station in life, and n,ot to dissinate his property. The husband's interest should be the wife's care, and hjr greatest ambition to ctrry her no farther than his welfare or happiness, together with thnt of her children! This should be her sole sim, and the theater of her exploits in the bosomof her family .where sho may do as muoh towards making fortune as he can in the cennting room or the workshop. ' , .

A few years since, whilo traveling in the the northern part, of Illinois, the rtage I whs in "topped at a villago hotel to givo the passengers an opportunity to get a lute dinner. ..While we sat ourselves bv a good Gro, the door opened, and in came a red faced, rough-looking man, whose countenance ant general appearance showed that ho uturt have seen bettor days, but was now far down the road towards a drunkard's grave. He called for something to eat, ' which the landlady brought to him,' at the same time remark ing that he was a hurd looking customer. .'"You are a plain spokeu woman," says he. ''Yos," said she, "it is a very plain case; but you have evidontly seen better days.' Her little boy was standing by and hearing tho conversation,, he turns to his mother and says: "Mother wasn't he somebody's nice little baby once?'' There is a tender spot iu evory one's heart, and the tears that started from the miserable man told too plainly that the words of the little boy had found one in his heart. Taming to the lad, he said, "A fond mother once held me in her arms, but littlo did she think 1 , would come to this. Thank God. she never lived to see it. LitchJiKld Examiner. Fill np the Armies. The army must be ke;t iu a condition to follow up every ndvantage, to striks heavily whenever its commander see the opportunity, and tq repair instantly every loss. This is a campaign which we can-. not affort to starvo. It must not be per mitted to linger while reinforcements are preparing, or to await the results of ap pet Is by tho government to the pooplo. The country must, come forward in advance of all appeals, must keep tho needed reserves close at hand, and, if necessa ry, must bo prepared to stimulate the government to the prompt support of our forces..

Young man meets a pretty face in the ball-room, fulls in love witli it, marries it, and goes to housekeeping with it, and boasts of having a home and a- wife to grace it. The chnnces are nine to one ch ha s neither. Her pretty face gets to be nn old story, or becomes faded or freckled oi fretted; and, as the face was all ho wanted, nnd all he set up with, all he bargained for, all ho swore to love, honor and protect, he gets sick of his trade, knows a dozen faces that he likes better, gives Up stayin? at home evenings, consoles htra elf with cigars, oysters and politics, and looks upon his home as a very indifforent boarding hnu'e.!

The truth is, editors can't step without trending on somebody's toes. If he expresses his opinions fearlessly nnd frankly, he is arrogant nnd presumptions. If he states facts with mt comments, he conscientiously refuses to advocate the claimes of an individual to office, he is full of hostility. A jackanape who measures off words into verses a a clerk does tape by the yard hands him a parcel of stuff that jingles like a handful of rusty nails nnd gimlets, and if the editor is not fool enoiigh to priut the nonsense, "stop my paper I wont patronize a man that is no bottej judge of poetry than that." as if it were patronage to buy a paper at one-half more than the waste paper cost A sttbsciiber murmurs because his paper is literary another because it is not literary enough. One grumbles because the advertisements engross too much room another complains that it is. too hrce we csh't, read it all. One wants type so small that a microncope would be indispensible in every family another threatens to discontinue the paper unless the letters are half "an inch Ion i fur conducting a journal, and the labor of Sisyphus was recreation when compared with that of an editor who undertakes to please all. ' a a ' ' THE VISIT OF mi.. JAQt L'SSTO HICII hi o.n n. , This interview, informal as it was, out-lit to put a stop to the silly twaddle about an armistice and 'peace on terms mutually honorable and satisfactory, which forms so largo a part of the stock of trade of every coward an'd copperhead. The last words that Mr. Davis spoke to his visitors were, '-Pay to Mr. Lincoln for mo that I shall at any time be pleased to receivo proposals for peace on the ba sis of our independence. It is useless to approach me with any other." We thus have the alternative plainly presented, peace and disunion, or a continuance of the war till wo can eonqunr the rebels and mako peaco on our own term?. Every sensible man knew it before, but Et3W that it issues from the lips of the rebel president himself, thero will be no further use for .the ignoring of the fact by the greatest fool or knave; and hereafter when a man talks of peace we shall know that he means disunion for, that is the only way we can have peace till we have conqucrsd it. Whether we will have such a peaco as Jeff. Davis die-tAtcs, or will continue the war till its objects arc accomplished, we are to decide at the po'ls in a few weeks. Let us ponder the matter carefully nnd seo thai the question is decided in the right way. Springfield Repuhlican. The Beauty of the Sky. Itisa strange thing, h jw litile, in general, people know about the sky. It is the par' of creation in which nature has done mere for the evident purpose, of talking to him nnd teaching him, that in any other of his works, and it is just the part in which we least attend to her. . There are not many of her other works in wh;ch some more material or essential purpose than the mere pleasing of roan is no' answered in every part of. their organization; but every essential purpose of the sky might, a far as re know, be answer ed, if once in three days, or thereabouts, a great black, ugly rain cloud wete broken np over the blue, and everything well watered, and so ail left blue again until the next time with perhaps a film of morning and evening mist for dew. Rut instead of this, there is not a moment of any day of our lives when nature is not producing scene after scene, picture after picture, glory . after glory, working still upon .such exquisite and constant prinoiples of the ' most perfeot beauty, that it is quite certain that it is all done for ' us intended for our perpetual pleasure, by tha Great Being who inade all worlds, ; , .' , v fatten.

Not far from the village of Homer, Calhoun county, Michigan, lives the venerable Mr. Sabine, a retired Methodist clergyman, upon whom the infirmities1 of ago have brought that of deafness; the elder being in the habit always of clapping his hands to his ear when he speaks, as well, as when he wishes to aid his heating. Mr. S., the elder's townsman, a ranting Copperhead, whose piety is jealous lest religion should be mixed with the profane ethics of universal lib erty,snd other similar questions crowing out of the war for saving the Union, beset the staunch old patriot awhile ago, berating him with the charge of "mixing politics with Higion." The elder retorted that it was only the politics of the Union party that ministers mixed with religion.' "What! what! what! what's that?" ejaculated Copperhead S. Clapping his hand to his his ear, "Your's won't.mix!" thundered the elder, whereupon the shout which broke from the surrounding multitude caused Cop. S. to simmer down and disappear. "Our Friends." The Atlanta (Ga.) Rcgistor of resoeot date rays: Ex-President Pierce. Seymour of Conn., Vallandigham, Reed, Woot and Richardson, and hundreds of others, are as hostile to the war as to Black Republicanism. These men are doing us indirect service. They are not openly nnd avowed ly our friends, nor could we reasonably ask this of thsin. If they did no more than resist the centralization of Mr. Lincoln, that far they are worthy of our respect and sympathy. If they hold np the banker of Stato Rights, that far they are advocating a sentiment entitled to our admiration. , ! i . . Such is the course tbey.are pursuing, and such a course ought to have our cordial approbation. Step by step the same convictions and tho same temper that have braced them in compaot, unity and fiery valor, to denounce ultra Federalism and New England fanaticism, will bring them upon the right ground as it respects our independence. . We confess our faith in their political principles. We confess our confidence that eventually these men will seo the whole truth, and embrace all itt conclusions . FEELING AT THE SO IT If. Extracts from Richmond papers, show the anger and gloom with which the loss of Atlanta has inspired the rebels. The faet that it will help the Union candidate for the Presidency, seems to annoy them even more tbao the defea tot their General. The interest they feel in the success the Chicago candidates may be inferred from this. The Richmond Pnquirer bases its hopes of peace mainly sn the success of a revolution by the Democrats of the North.

Eatber nave the Master tban His !!!!: The Chicago Tribune ef Tnesday says: Two delegates to the "Democratio" Pea 36 Convention met last evening at one of the hotels one from New York, a McClellan man the other from Iowa, an out and outpease-upon-acy-terms man. lhe New Yorker was urging the nomination of his favorite General, who is great on italionary power, when he was interrupted by the Iowa peaco wing man, who exclaimed, "I would rather take the mas-tor than his dog for McClellan has been the dog of Linooln in this- war, aud has only done his bidding." The Now Yorker was rather stumped at the master and dog illustration of a candidate, and sloped f.-r comfort to other quarters. . ' Symbatby for the Fallen. : For my part, I confess I havo no. the heart to take an offending man or woman from the general crowd of sinful, stirring beings, and judgo them harshly. The little I have seen of the world, and know of the history of mankind, teaches me to look upon the errors of others in sorrow, not anzer. When I take the history of one poor heart that has sinned and suffered, I will present to myself the brief pulsation ot joy, the feverish inquietude of hope and fear, the tears of regret, the feebleness of purpose, the pressure pf want, the desertion of friends, the scorn if the world that has but little charity, the desolation ot the soul's sanoiuary, and the threatening voice within; health gone, even hope, lliat stays longest with us, I have but little heart for aught else but thankfulness that it is not so with me, and would fain leave the erring soul of my fellow being with II im from whose hands it came. Hope and Work. There arc fome people who think that nothing is gained unless all is gained. They prefer to go hungry if they cannot have the whole loaf at once. They are impatient, restless, and unpractical. They rarely bring much to pass, but spend their days in chasing phantoms, mourning over the hardchips of their lot, and watching for a Utopia or an earthly paradise. Another and a wiser class see that all healthy changos, all real and lasting reforms, are slowly inaugurated. Tbey have learned from the past that all enduring institutions are the produots of long and slow growth. They gladly avail themselves of every advantage, however small, which is offerod them in the paosecution of their work, and toil on, cheerful in the hope that present achieve ments will form the stepping stones to other and greater victories. FIRMNESS is OBSTINACY. Where a man is firm for a right thing, and in a sensible and reasonable way, evetybody says, "How beautifull" but where a man is constitutionally firm, and is obstintaa in little things as well as ia great thing;; and sticks to a thing when he has once Said it, no matter if he said it in a passion; and will not take up his hand when he has put it down, just because ho has put it down; and has no pliability about him; and, instead of, being like a tree that, when the wind blows upon it, is always at the same place by the rool, bat never at tho same place by the bough, combining perfect elasticity with perfect firmness, is like a cast-iron tree, that is stiff in trunk, and stiff in everytwig, clear out to the leaves is he lovely? Not to the one that to live with him. Beech. Joni Wesley, the founder' of Meth- odiipj, when one day riding through the country, was saluted by a drunken ft How whj Wtw lying in the ditch.

Beau'iful things are suggestive of a purer and higher life, and fill us with a mingled love end fear. They have a gra-oiuusuess that wils us, and an excellence to which we involuntarily do reverence. If you are poor, yet pore and modestly aspiring keop a vaso of flowers on your table, and they will help to maintain your dignity, and seenre for your consideration and delicacy of behavior. Use of Knowledge , Some men think that the gratiiica'tioo; ot curiosity is the end of knowledge; somo-the love of f.ime; some the pleasure ot dispute; some the nocesaity of supporting themselves by their knowledge; but the real use of all knowledge is this, that we should dedicate that reason which was given as by God to the use'aad advantage of man.
