There once wan a Count, so I've heard is said
ho felt that his end drew near;
Anil he called hii sons before his bed
To part them his goods and gear. V
lie called for his plough, he called for Eis sword,
1 hat gallant, good and brave :
They brought hiri both at their father's word,
And thus hi blessings gave :
"My first-Wrn son, my pride and might,
Io thou iqy B-ord retain :
My castle on) the lordly height,
And all Biy boird domain.
" ! - T I S J . ;
"On thee, roy weIl-lovedyounger boy,
My plonb I here bestow,
A peaceful life shall thou enjoy,
n the quiet vile below."
' ' " 'I !
Contented wnk the ei to rest,
" Ko wait jwas gjveni away ;
The sons held true his last behest,
E'en on their dying day.
"Now tell lis what came of the steel of flame,
Of the castle And its knight I
And tell us what came of the vale so tame,
And the bumble peasant wight ?"
' '1 M; j . '
O ask not of me what the end may be !
Ask 6f the country round !
The castle is du.st, the sword is rust,
The height i but desert ground.
I'U " 1 .
But the! vale spreads Wide in the golden pride
Of the autumn sunlight now ;
It teems and it; ripens far and wide,
And the hoiior abides with the plough.
"IROCK OF AGES."
"Rock of Ages, cleft for me,"
Thoughtlessly the maiden sung,
Fell the wprds unconciously
J ! From her girlish, gleeful tongue ;
Sang as little children sing;
Sang as sing the birds in June;
Fdlthe words like light leaves down
; Ou the current of true
"Itock of Ages, cleft me,
I Let me hide myself in Thee'"
"Let me hide! myself in Thee,"
4 Felt her soul no need to hide ;
Sweet (he SoUg as song could be
: And she had no thought beside ;
All the wotds unheedingly
Fell fronii lips untouched by care.
Dreaming pot they each might be
On some other lips a prayer
"Rock of Ags, cleft for me,
; Let me bid myself in Thee."
"Kock of Ages cleft for me"
, 'Tvvas a woman sung them now,
Pleadiugly: and prayfully ;
: Every vvtH-d her heart did know,
Rose the song as storm tossed bird
Beats with weary wing the air.
Every note with sorrow stirred
' Every syllable a prayer
"Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
. Let me hide myself in" Thee."
,; 4- ' ; " 1
"Rock of Ak, cleft for me "
Lips grown aged sung the hymn
Trusting aftd tenderly
Vice-grown weak ar.d eyes grown dim,
"Let me hide myself in Thee,"
Trembling though t,he voice and low,
Ran the strain peacefully.
Like a river in its How,
Sung as onjly they can sing
Who lifers thoruy paths have passed ;
Snug as only they can f-ing
Who behold the promised rest
'R..ck of Ages, cleft fr me,
Let ine hide myself in Thee."
"Rock of Age3, cleft to me,"
Rung above a coffin lid ;
Under eatlnall restfully.
All life's joys and Sorrows hid,
Xeverinorei O storm-tosstd mul !
Nevermore from wiud or tide,
Nevenpore from billow's roll.
Wilt thou peed thyself to hide,
Could the sightless, sunkeu eyes.
Closed beneattii the sft gray hair,
Could the mute and stiffened lips
Move again in pleading pra-ver.
Still, aye, still the words wuld be,
Let-me hide myself in Thee.'"
A Good Rule.
Ti well to walk with a cheerful heart,
- l; Whereyer our fortunes call,
With a friendly glance, an open hand,
And a gentle word for all.
Since life is a thorny and difficult path,
Where toils is the portion of man,
We all should endeavor, while passing along,
i To make it as smooth as we can.

AXDUEW JOHNSON SENDS FOR GjEELET.
Soon after Johnson was inalled as
President, he sent a gentleman to New
York to solicit an interview ylth Horace
Greeley. Unable to leavalhe capital,
Greeley must come to hinLAt once at the
White House. Greely promptly complied
with the request.
Johnson opened the conversation by say
ing that he round himself la a most trying
position, ihe nation-was convulsed with
passion in consequence oi Mr Lincoln
assassination ; the situation was new and
embarrassing to him ; he fdt inadequate
to the task to which he hid been so un
expectedly called, and he elttlie need, as
he had never before fell i:, of the counsel
of some cool and sagacioui man. He had,
therefore sent for Mr. Greeley. What
course to pursue, how to Kern the torrent
of Northern frenzy, how to manage the
reins of government in a crisis so awful,
was a problem too deep for bira to solve.
Placing himself in Mr. Greeley's hand?,
WHAT MUST IDO ?
Thanking him for the confidence thus
repoaed in him, Mr. Grteby replied that
his be?t course was to call to his assistance
a few of the, wisest and best men in the
country. They should b representative
Hietflrom the two great sections. On the
part of the North he would suggest Gov.
Andrew of Massachusetts Gerrit Smith
of New York, and Judge Sjaldingjof Ohio.
A like number ot uilcru gentlemen
should bo called; they shfuld be invited
to the White House as guests of the Pres
ident, there to remain and deliberate as
long as they thought fit; and having a
greed upon some policy, lley should sub
mit it to the President for. his approval,
and if approved by him, ai Mr. Greeley
doubted not it would be, itihould be faith
fully and rigidly pursued, cespite the pop
ular chmor whidi miglit fur a timeeusuc.
Mr. Julnisou thought well of the eug
"Hut wh.it southern men shoild I invite
Mr. Greeley, to meet the gentlemen you
have named from the north'"
"First and foremost," said Mr. Greeley,
"Robert E. Lt:e of Virginia."
"Great heavens!? exclaimed Johnson :J
''he is the verv head aiiH. front of the re
hellion." " )
"I know thai," said (Jreelcy, "and for
that very reason you jiouid invite liim.
He knows, if any man iocs, the wants of
the Southern people; li5 of all men pos
sesses the confidence of the entire South ;
he is uptight: and pure; he would not re
commend : single action on your part
which would not meet tins approval of your
advisers from the north, and the result of
the deliberations in which Robert E. Lee,
Judge Cambcll of Alalam.i, and a third
man 1 ke them, from the son! Ii took part,
would not only -insure the approbation of
the disafi'. cJed States, Uit in the course of
u few months, w.-uld I am firmly persuad
ed, bring to your support every right
minded and right hearted man at the north.
The pacification ot the estranged sections,
your m lin difliculty, would thus be solved
and your path made clear toward the so
lution of minor dilnculi u .. IIow are you
to discover the true sentiments of tin south
and the wants of its people if you do not
consult her representative men And
what sort of restoration wil that be in the
plan of which the south has no part what
ever? It must of necessitv be one sided,
partial and aLd unjust, lie puisiudcd,
Mr. President, and call to your aid men
of the standing, position, and temper I
have suggested, and by all means call
thrm from both section5,"
In this strain Mr, Greeley continued
until he had
FaIKLT WON THE PRESIDENT s
over to his wav of thinking. The intcr-
of mY al'ility
i 1 hey parted, and ten days atrerward
Johnson threw Greeley's suggestions to
the wind, adopted "My policy," at.d pur
sued it; witlrr'wh.tt result the country is
, but too sadly aware.

Mr. Editor: As the Sentinel is the
advocate of just administration of the la
alike to all ; and also the fearless expoeer
ot all sorts ot villainy and unjust adminis
tiation of law, I wish to give to the voters
of North Carolina but one of the many
villainous acts of a radical officer of our
town, and who is now the radical candi
dates for Stite Auditor."
One John-Riley, of Pennsylvania, who
is now Mayoi ot Fayetteville, had before
him a gentleman from Sampson county
and YN . ll. .Love, a radical of this town
charged with h iving a fight. Upon the
examination of the witucss, the following
facts were sworn to :
L he said . K. lyjve came into my
stoic, and walking up to tlie gentleman
ask' d him, if he w;s the author of an ar-
tide that appeared in the Eagle of the 27;h

pli"d, that he was, thereupon said Love,
collared and struck a blow or blow. Mr.
Howard then taking hold of eaid Love
without showing any signs of fight farther
than to prevent eaid Love from inflicting
any damage upon his person. Rut think
ing however, that Love was trying to get
a pistol from his pocket, he struck him
on the head with a small pair of couuter
Love stated that he had hunted Mr.
Howard up for the purpose of having a
fight ; whereupon the honorable mayor
from Pennsylvania gave the following
judgvnent : . R. Love, fined 50 cents,

fi:ied ten dollars and cost?, and bound
him over iu a bond of five hundred doN

Now, Mr Editor, it John Riley, as a
