. : How lonely is the house to-night,
It's still, and silent as the tomb ;
So low has burned the fire light
; Its fitful glare makes fitful gloom,
That lingers 'bout the silent room,
Dancing o'er the painted wall,
With a strange unearthly glow,
In the form of death'a dark pall, '
Falling in Bhadows long and low:
Bringing to memory days now gone
Dark days of sorrow and woe.
Past scenes now crowd upon me fast,
Both form, and scenes of long ago.
Alas! alas !t and is it just,
That now those forms are lying low,
1 Ail crumbling to their natire dust.

What a noble
It brings to mind that bitter day,
That took all joy from my young life,
Twas then our darling went away
To, mix within th battle's strife,
'Twas then he joined our Southern band
Who went to fight the coming foe.
Tbey went to free our sunny land,
And lay the vile invader low.
Our hearts with misery deep were filled;
And on; our lives there fell a blight
Whilst every joy of life was stilled.
For now our bouse must sink in night,
For he the star that beamed so bright,
The only brother dear had we :
Must leave his parents, kindred all,
And go obey that stern decree,
In answer to his country's call.
Our father had been gone all day
From home, and had not yet returned;
Our brotherto was gone away ;
But soon a dreadful truth we learned,
For when the sable night had n eared
He came and sought our parlor room ;
And tofd us then he'd volunteered.!
Oh God 1 the grief that wrung our hearts,
When this dread news struck on the ear ;
None knew but He, who strength imparts
To bear the cross without a tear.
But oh. our hearts were filled with woe
When thus was broke the home band link.
nowjcould we let our dear one go,;
Oh bitter, was the cup to drink !
He looked so handsome, brave and grand,
As on the morn he marched away
To fight for this our southern land.i
O'er his fair face a smile did play
And in his dark eves gleamed a light
Which said, '-dear mother weep no more,
For with God's help I'll do thejight,
And when this war, dear mother's o'er,
And I have Won the wreath of fame,
Then to your arms I'll come again;
Come, with a glory covered name, !
And bring you joy for every pain.'
Alas! alas! for lour long years, j
Our southern heros fought in vain,
Whilst friends at home were shediog tears,
Involved in ruin, care and pain. ,
? A "" .
Oh where was he, our cherished one !
Who had been gone from home so long?
Ah, ha4 his earthly race been run,
Or was he doing right, or wrong? i
Oil he had kept his promise well, )
And kept hU place upon the field,
Where thickly fell the ball and shll ;
And where the strongest soldier 'reeled,
As thick and fast the death-shot How,
' And loud the artilery pealed.
Yes at his post he stood him true,
'Stern courage written on his face, j
Whilst towered high his noble form,
That rising form, of manly grace "
Which well might brook the battle's storm.
Four long years sped wearily by, '
But oh, the south had sunk in gloom;
All o'er the land the orphan's cry :
Bewailed her dire and dreadful doom.
For northern leagues oppressed her now,
Whilst -cold within the silent tomb
Lay our gallant Jackson's brow ;
And many brave men too had sunk,
Ah, sunk alas I to rise no more.
Since first the south with blood got drunk.
And when the "cruel war" was o'er,
Twas then we saw our darling one;
But oh; so changed in form and face,
The mother,' scarcely knew her son.
Far gone the boy-hood's tender grace,
.And dim the once bright sparkling eye,
And sad the higTi and noble brow.
How oft I've heard the mother sigh
For him who's sweetly sleeping now.
- ! il
He stayed with us a few short years,
Our own dear, darling noble boy ;
But oftjthcrt&came cold sick'ning fears
That soon would end our earthly joy.
We saw the flush that often crept
Up to his cheek so white, and pale:
We saw how feeble grew his step,
And from our hearts there rose a wail
Of anguish deep and still,
A wail that could not.be repressed ;
And through our hearts there went a thrill
Of pnin that would not let us rest.
At last there, came a dreadful day,
When lie was stricken down in death:
While yet upon his bed he lay,
With fading eye and heaving breath,
His words were these "oh Father, now,
In StPa nl's place I sweetly rest."
He spoke no more,; cold grew his brow
He's living now amid the blest.
I ' j ! L ' ' '
Thy work is done, oh brother, sleep!
No angry winds can reach thee now ;
Tly slumber too is calm and deep
No troubles can assail thee now.
Then rest my brother, sweetly rest
Within that sweet, and holy spot;
For thou art nowamid the blest,
And bless'd are they who find thy lot.

The impression seems to prevail that
where judgmeuts have been docketed
against a debtor tbey create a lien upou
his homestead, and that, consequently,
he will lose it if he goes into bankruptcy.
Hut this is a mistake, lhe particular es
tate created by the homestead law hexempt
from execuiiou. Our Supreme Court has
decided that docketed judgments do not
attach to and bind the homestead estate,
but only the -reversion. The bankrupt,
therefore, so far as his home-stead is con
cerned, will be left precisely where the
State law leaves him. But he will be al

visited on yesterday, a young man from
Sampson, a defendant in a Ku Klux case,
who' was lying dangerously ill in a small
garret room on Faycttevillc street, so
close and uncomfortable that a well m in

The subject has been nnder discussion
among our citizens of purchasing the en
tile block w here the. Court House former
ly stood, and settingi it apart as a public
square, with the new Conrt House in the
centre. The property can be purchased
at a moderate figure, and we trust earn
estly that the movers iu this happy un
dertaking may be successful.
'1 he city needs a public square, has
needed one for a long time, and no better
onnortunitv will ever be Presented of
I J .
securing one in ah eligible place. A few
mills on the dollar of taxation will accom
plish it, and then we will have something
of which onr little city may be proud.
A meetinjr will be held to-night at Odd
Fellow's hall to take this subject under
discussion when, it is hoped, there will
be a fnll attendance of our citizens.
