Sweet mocking maid she Walks nnd smiles,
hen winds are hushed and sties serener;
The air grows' eofl beneath her tread,
And where her radiant looks are shed
The leaves arc greener.
We see a tangle of bright hair.
A round white arm extended:
We catch the fragrance, faintly sweet,
Of breezy robes about her feet,
A ith roses blended.

Where'er her vagrant fancv leads

We seem to clasp her wayward charms :
She melts from our embracing arms
With airy laughter.
She waves a rainbow in the air,
And while we gaze, delighted,
She tears the fabric into shreds,'
And scatters far th floating threads,
ao more united, j r

She turns away her veiled face,!
In sudden mood capricious ; j
But while we mourn the dismal shroud,
Breaks forth like sunlight froui a cloud, ,
ller smile delicious.

She plays a thousand teasing tricks ;

Yet, spite of all, our hearts confess
L:fe had not half its loveliness f
Were we without her.

Patrick Henry in Court
HIS BRILLIANT DEFENCE OF THE INDICT
ED PBEACHEIS. ,
From an old newspaper given the Charlotte
Democrat by a friend
The intolerance of the established
church Mr. Piirtou illustrates ly the
case of three Baptist preachers who
were arraigned as "disturbers of the
peace" before magistrates who were de
termined to codvicM tliem. Patrick
Henry rode fifty miles to defend theiii,
and the following account is given of
his performance it jwasi more than a
speech on that occasion!
He entered ths court-house while
the prosecuting attorney was reading
the indictment. He was a stranger to
most of the spectators, and, being
dressed in the country manner, his en
trance excite 1 no reniurk. When the
prosecutor had finished his brief open-
nig, the new-comer took the indict
ment, and glancing at it with an ex
pression of puzzled incredulity, beg in
to speak in the tone of a m m who has
ju t he.ud soxnetmng too astonishing
tor belief. i
Say it please your worships I
think I heard read by the prosecutor.
as I entered the house, the naner 1
now hold in my hand. If I have right
ly understood, the King attorney has
framed an indictment for the purpose
of arraigning and punished by impris
onment these three inotrensive persons
before the bar of this- court for a crime
magnitude-has disturbers of
th.e l)eiice- . May it please the court,
hear reauV Did J hear it
distinctly, or was it a mistake of my
own? Did I hear an expression of a
crime, tiiat .these men. whom vour
worships are about tp try for misde
me.mor, are charged with with with
what? s .
(laving delivered these words in a
haltiiitr, broken manner, as if his mind
was staggering under the weight of a
monstrous idea, he lowered his voice to
its deepest, bass, and assuming the pro
foundest.solem.uity of manner, answer
ed his own question:! "Preaching the
gospel ot the bon ot God!
I lien he pauses. Every eve was now
riveted upon him, and every mind in
tent; for all this was executed ts a
Keau or a Siddons j would have per
formed it on the stage ee, voice, at
titude gesture, all in accord to nroduce
the utmost possibility of i fleet. Amid
a silence that could be felt, . he waved
the indictment three j times round his
head, as though still I amazed, still un
able to comprehend the Charge.
then he raised his? hands and eyes
to heaven, and, iu a! tone of pathet
ic energy, wholly indescribable, ex-
c'aimed "Great God!"
At this point, such was the power
of his delivery, the audience relieved
their feelings by a burst of siiihs and
tears. The orator continued:
'May it please your worships, in a
day like this, when truth is about to
burst her fetters, when mankind are
about to be aroused to claim their nat
ural and inalienable rights, when the
yoke of oppression that has searched
the wilderness; of Amene:, and the un
natural alliance o (ecclesiastical and
civil power, are about! to be dissevered
at such a period, when liberty, liber
ty ot conscience, is about to awake
from her Klumberinsrs ant! inquire into
luMvasuii of such charges as I find
exhibited here to-day iu this indict
ment here oecured another of his ap
palling pauses, during which lie cast
piercing looks at the Judges and at the
three clergymen arrainged. Then re
suming, he thrilled everv! hearer bv his
favarate device of repetition : ' If 1
am not deceived according to the
contents of the paper I how hold in

preaching, the - bospel of the boa of
Uod. lie waived the document three
times round his head as! though still
lost in wonder, and then, with the
same electric attitude of apnea! to
Heaven, he g!upad "(treat God."
This was followecl by another burst
o: leenng troui the spectators: and
aT'iin this master o effect plunged in
to tae tide of his discourse:
y "May it please-olir worships there

baied the human character, that inn

Sheep on the Farm.
For f;irm mannrft thft shien ia snr -
passed'baly by the hen, and rivaled only
is by the hog. It is much easier to save
the manure from the sheep, less of the
liquid being lost. Owing to the dry-
ness of the solid, most of the liquid is
soaking up and saved, while that from
cattle h lost, or saved only inexpensive
tanks or cemented cellars, bheep,
e;er sheep are kept the land isfouud to
continually increase in fertility.
The amount of labor bestowed on
sheep is niuch less than that Ijestowed
on cattle. The labor in watering,
which takes so much time with a 1 irge
stock of cattle, is with sheep entirely
done away by a simple free access to
a running stream. The labor of fenc-
ing is largelv curtailed, The work of
cleaning stable is. bv a daily addition
of straw, confiued to some damp days,
. ... . .i i i 1 1 .
and aitoiretner tnere is a great, aeai less
expensive labor in the raising of sheep

Another matter which should not

from the sheep. The money invested
