PRESIDENT LINCOLN TAKING THE OATH AT HIS SECOND INAUGURATION, March 4, 1865. — Photographed by Gardner, Washington. — [See Page 164.]
Behold her now, with restless, flashing eyes,
Crouching, a thing forlorn, beside the way!
Behold her ruined altars heaped to-day
With ashes of her costly sacrifice!
How changed the once proud State that led the strife,
And flung the war-cry first throughout the land!
See helpless now the parricidal hand
Which aimed the first blow at the nation's life!
The grass is growing in the city's street,
Where stand the shattered spires, the broken walls;
We will carry war where it is easy to advance, where food for the sword and torch await the armies in the densely populated cities."
Do the rebel chiefs suppose that the men to whom they appeal have no sense and no memory? At the opening of the war Jefferson Davis told them it would be a holiday task to establish "the Southern Confederacy." Today Jefferson Davis quakes in Richmond, and his confederates implore the people whom he deceived four years ago to cling to Richmond and all will be wel
THE THREE WISHES.
The eastern origin of this tale seems evident; had it been originally composed in a northern land, it is probable that the king would have been represented as dethroned by means of bribes obtained from his own treasury.
There was once a wise emperor who made a law, that to every stranger who came to his court a fried fish should be served. The servants were directed to take notice, if, when the stranger had eaten the fish to the bone on one side, he turned it over and beg
LET US MAKE THE BEST OF IT.
Life is but a fleeting dream,
Care destroys the zest of it;
Swift it glideth like a stream —
Mind you make the best of it!
Talk not of your weary woes,
Troubles, or the rest of it;
If we have but brief repose,
Let us make the best of it!
If your friend has got a heart,
There is something fine in him;
Cast away his darker part,
Cling to what's divine in him.
Friendship is our best relief —
Make no heartless jest of it;
It will brighten ev

Certainly after seeking her in the full knowledge of her existing relations with another, Mr. Hilary deserved a loveless wife, and certainly he got one. He had no idea of waiting upon caprices; affairs were ordained at his pleasure; before ice should sleet the rigging of his yacht he carried his wife with him back to Balti
A TROUBLED TENANCY.
The strange story which I am about to relate embraces a short period at the close of October, 1862.
I, Henry Marston, solicitor, then aged 28 years, had just returned from a continental tour. Before leaving town I had arranged finally to quit the chambers which I had previously occupied there; on coming back, therefore, I was, for the time, a homeless man.
Under these circumstances I gladly availed myself of a kind offer made to me by an old friend, a brother of
previous position in the prudent parent's estimation. Edith, moreover, took to her bed on my account, and so inclined her papa for an opening of negotiations. My love for the gentle girl enabled me to detect my opportunity, and to seize it with avidity. My comfortable private fortune and fair professional prospects at length told favorably upon the somewhat calculating old gentleman; so that when, having found new chambers, I returned to town, my "troubled tenancy" had yielded me two benefits,
LANDING OF GENERAL POTTER'S AND ADMIRAL DAHLGREN'S TROOPS AT BULL'S BAY, SOUTH CAROLINA. — [Sketched by John Everding.]
A VISIT TO FORT SUMTER.
There is a thrilling dramatic effect in the repossession of Fort Sumter four years after its surrender to traitors. Every thing connected with the capture of Charleston has more or less of this dramatic interest. Here the rebellion had its birth, and after four years of a strife the most terrible as well as the most needless on record, after fou
