Well, wife. I've foun.l tlsc model church,"
And worshipped tlierc to-l:tV;
It infuie me tit in k of good old tiiiicn,
; Uelore my h:iir whs gray,
Tlie meet in f hoti3C Mas finer built,:1
Than they were years aijro.
Ktit then I found when 1 went'In
It was not OuUt for show.
The sexton djd not set mc down,
Away back by the door;
Ho knew that I was old and deaf,
And saw that I was poor;
Ho must have foje-n a Christian man?
He led me boldly through N
The long aylc of that crowded church,
To find it-jdeasant pew.
Twish you'd hear the singing, wife,
It had the oldtinM ring;
The preacher said with trumpet voice,
Let all the people sing:
Old Coronation' ,was the tune.
The music upward" rolled,
Till I thought I heard the angel-choir
Strike all their harps of gold.
My deafness seeme l to melt away;
My spirit caught the tiro:
I joined my feeble, trembling voice,
-With that mi'lodiotis choir,
A id sa.'.g. as i:i my youthful 'lays, ;
'Let angel's prostrate fall:
Diing forth the roy-al di-a-dem,
And crown him Lord of all."'
I tell you, wife, it did me good
To sing that' hymn once more;
I i'.-lt like souk- wretched mariner
Wlio get a g'iii!)sj of shore.
I almost. want to lay 'aside
T.iis vi uthcr-beaten form,
An I anchor in t!u- blessed port,
Forever front the storm.
' Tw.is not the ilowery sermon, wife,
1'tit su!i;lc, gospel truth:
It fitted liunibU- men like mep
It suited boju-i'u! youth,
To win immortal souls t; Christ,
The earnest preacher tried:
lie talked not of himself, or creed,
Uut Jesfis erue-!k- 1.

at Lisbon, Portugal. Among all my
brother correspondents who were slow

whoe friendship I so resolutely sought
and so carefully cherished as that of
the veteran dean of our guild, the Vis

iat one of the chiefs ot the besieged
ilesired to confer with me
him ia the house occupied by Cerviut;
tes. It was Co!. Con Miguel Lopez.
This officer announced to me that the
empei or, desiring to avert all further
bloodshtfd, has renounced his claim Uh
the crown', that he gave his royaf
word of honor to leave the country
forever, and-that he hoped I would
pennit him to march out of the place
with his staff, escorted by a detach
ment of the Empress1 regiment, ta the
limits of Tuxpan, wdiere he would em
bark. The only ausAver vouchsafed
Lopez was that the orders of my gov
ernment were explicit, viz: An un
conditional surrender on the part oi
the archduke, or a fight to the last
extremity on mine. He continued
to supphcate m; persistently not to
oblige the garrison to attempt a sortie,
to rape the seige, since this would -only
prolong indefinitely, the horrors of
civil war. He besought me in the
name of peace and of the Archduke,
who was willing to -make any sacrifice,
to act geneiously and awrt a sorti'',
which would result in a fearful effj-siou
"I replied to Lope, that I was per
fectly well acquainted with the forces
at.uiy disposal;- that I ardently de
sired a sortie whicli : would not only
render our victory more brilliant, but,
at the same time, .avert from the town
the dread cat ast rophe .of an assault. I
told him that the t .w ii was starving,
and that tleiuor..l:.atioo rcigi.td su
preme; that if he d.sa-ed proof of my
inform ition o:i that j subject, I would
confront him with olrijeis- who had
just deserted-to u.s.

should do evtrvthilig possible ill
'favor of the archduke, and promising
that I should not have iv.isoii to repent
of aiv generosity, I iudiguaiitiy order

"General, did Lopez ask nothing

I had always btdicVetl that Lop.-z

He replied that h 3 had no objection
whatever to receiving these persoas,
