Mother ! watch tne nine test,
Climbing o've the garden wall,

Ranging cellar, shed and hall,

Little feet will go astray.
Quids them, muther while you may.
Mother ! watch the little band
Picking berries by the way,
Xaking houses in the sand.
Towing up the fragrant hay.
Never dare the question ask.
Why to me this weary task !
These same little bands may prove
Messengers of light and love.
Mother ! watch the little tongne,
Prattling eloquent and wild.
What is said and what is sung,
By the happy, joyoas child.
Catch the word while yet unspoken.
Stop the vow before 'tis broken ;
This same tongne may yet proclaim,
Blessings in a Saviour's name.
Mother ! watch the little heart,
Beating soft and warm for you ;
Wholesome lessons uuw impart ;
Keep. O keep that youug heart true,
Extracting every weed,
Sowing good and precious seed ;
Harvest rich you then may see, ,
Blptuiog of eternity.
THE STOLEN LETTER.
One rainy niglil, about half-pact eight
'clock, the train bad dashed iulo McKib
bso's Corners, at.d the mail had been de
lifered at the store and post office.
John r airjKh.ii, tne postmaster, had
spened the bag and counted the letters.
There were, as he made out, just ten, and
one was larger than the others and had a
ltd seal; and then he had found that he
bad left bis glasses on the newspapers in
the back room, and withont bis glasses he
could not read a line; and so, of course
at had gone after tbem, returning to find
two persons in tho store Farmer Roper
icd Squire McKibben, whose ancestors
Ltd given name to the place.
Wet, sin t iti said Mr. fairjohn, nod-
yon waul Mr. McKibben will take yon
over when he goes. He passes your cor
ner. Yes, wait, Mrs. Lester, cried Mr. Me
Kih ben, 'I'll take yon and welcome.'
But she bad answered:
'Thank yon, I don't mind walking alone
and was gone.
'Keeps it np, don't suet' asked the
'It's a shame said Mr. McKibben.
'How many yeara is it now since Les

'Ten,' said the postmaster. 'I know,
tor it was the dav I came here. She was
as prety a woman as you'd want to tee
then, wasn't she ?'
'Well, yet,' said Mr. McKibben. -'Sailed
in the Sphynx,' said the poet
master. 'And we -all know that the
Sphynx went down in that voyage, el)
bauds along with her. The rent of the
women put on widow's weeds, them that
letter. Job was fnrnishtna his bouse-

wedding was to lake place. And it was
night again. A month from that night,
when she had come f"r the last time, as
every one thought, through rain and mod
to make her sadly foolish query, she was
sensible at last very sensible. She had
chosen the substance instead of the shad
ow. And now as we said, it was night, and
& wetter one than the other later, too,
for Mr. Fairjohn had closed the store,
and was compounding for himself what
he called a 'night cap' of some fragrant
liquor, warm water, lemons and soger
and was supping it by the stove when
there came upon his. door a feeble knock,
and when being repeated, he heard il
there staggered in out of the rain a drip
ping figure that of Jessie Lester, the bride
who was to be on the morrow.
She was trembling with cold, and as he

squire. Mail's in, I see. That train

He turned to the little pile of envelopes

deck of csrds.

I thought one had a red seal. I might

'Only Roper and I, said the squire;'

She's kept it np ever einee; comes for his

with all the rest of course, ten years ago.

a good deal in that time,'
Yes, said the other man; bat there is
my son Job wild over her yet. He's
offered himself twice. He stands ready
to offer himself again any day ready to
be a father to heread and a good husband
to her. He s better off than I bo. His
mother's father left him all he had He's
crazy as Job crazy, I call it. Plenty
of pretty gals, aud healthy, smart widows,

mud; and she why, of course she s lost

like a slave to keep herself and child.
lives in a rickety shanty waiting for a
drowned man to come back again. -Why,
every one knows Charlie Lester was
drowned in the Sphynx. There wasn't
a soul saved, not one. It was in the pa
pers. Now, the bottle was found with a
letter in it writ by some one before the
ship sunk. Aud she is waiting for him
'Crazy on that point,' said the post
master. "Well, poor soot, she'd only
been married a week when the Sphynx
sailed; that makes a difference.'
'Ob, yes,' said the farmer.
Then their parcel being ready, they
went out to the wagon, and Mr. Fairjohn
having stared into the rainy night awhile
put np his shutters and went to bed.
Meanwhile, the woman plodded on through
the mud. 'Walking off her disappoint-

Judge Warren says : ,
"No change of the incumbents of office
can make our present Conslltation toler
able. Persistence in the right has won
all oar recent victories. The calling of a
Convention is a monument it the interest
of true Conservatism and I fanuot under

good of the people is likely to be danger

vention shall assemble and restore the old
Constitution as far as is consistent with
the new order of things and guarding the
Homestead and exemptions, the people
will "rise up and call it blessed,"
Hon. Burgess S. Gaitber says :
"Individually I should prefer that the
Convention wheu convened should re
adopt the State Constitution we had on
the 20th of May, 1861, with the necessary
amendments growing ont of the recent
amendments of the Constitution of the
United States and the ordinances 'in our

slavery with the addition of the homestead

Hon. John Manning says :
"The Constitution was framed by men
for the most part of very little experience
in political affairs and still less acquainted
with our coudition and wants, aud never
received the free, untrarameled approval
that instrument and ita utter inedaptatioa to
important defects aud great superfluities of
ambiguity and restrictions upon the legiss
lative department, its loose and unrestrain
ed power vested in the hands of the Exe
alive Department have been and continue
to be sources of much embarrassment in
perfecting useful legislation for the coun
try. Under such a Constitution wo can
never hope to see our good old State de
veloped into a great and glorious com
monwealth such as ber natural resources
entitle her to be."
Mr. W. A Wright, Jndge R. S. French,
Judge O. P. Mears, Mr. John L. Holmes,
Colonel Robert Strange and Honorable
George Davis unite in saying :
"We are decidedly of the opinion that
the Constitution needs to be changed in
very many very material respects, and
that too, right speedily. Indeed the
daily experiences of six years in oar
Legislative Halls, in the Courts of Justice,
and in every walk in lite, shows thai it is
an inseparable obstacle to good govern
ment." Edward Conigland says :
"The Constitution of 1868 is not
adapted to the wants of the people, is
i a i . . F
ouraeosome ana oppressive in Its opera
tion, and should be ameuded in the most
efficient and speediest practicable mode."

What does Governor Graham say abont
it. He declares :
"The present Constitution of this State
is an anomaly fn American institutions.
It has no claim to continuance by . reason
of the times in which it was composed,
tbe influential character of its authors,
and we may add tbe circumstances of ita
adoption. It has as much application to
the people of Illinois as to us. There are
provisions in the Constitution insulting
and degrading to the sovereignty of the
State and purposely placed there."
. Judge Manly ay,:
"The Constitution ought to be amend
ed in many material respects, and it should
be done at once, as indispensibly necessary
to useful legislation. There is no person
in the State, it seems to me, who has the
sense to form a judgement upon the sub
ject at all. who, at the same time, is capa
ble of freeing himself from the blinding
efforts of prejudice and self interest, who
does not understand and acknowledge
this. Manvofit8 provisions are foreign

Montfort McGehee, Esq., of Person,
v "The Constitution was imposed on as
by force. We look on it as a badge of ser
vitude. It was the work of needy ad
ventures ignorant of political science, in
tent only on plunder and office. It has
manacled the hands of the Legislature
where action is essential to prosperity aud
progress. - It had engendered and kept
alive a constant strife between the several
departments of tho government; the
boundary line between the law-making
executive branches of oar Government is
yet undefined after ears of litigation.
Tho verdict of tbe people is "made up.
This Constitution is an offence to us and
we do not intend to live under it."
