PRESIDENT LINCOLN AT HOME. — [Photographed by Brady.]
When raging earthquakes bury towns,
Or fierce volcanoes lash their manes
Of boundless, fiery ruin round
The groaning hills and shrieking plains,
The world may fitting emblems find
To speak the horror of its heart,
In cities craped, in banners furled,
And all the solemn show of art.
But when a Human Hand is turned
Into a ruthless demon-power,
And smites a nation in its Chief,
Even at his triumph's crowning hour,
What emblems shall Man fitting find,
Sir Robert Peel, the Prime Minister, yielded to the inevitable logic of the reformers, and brought in the bill repealing the duties upon imported corn, which was approved on the 26th of June, 1846.

I went to gather heart's-ease
When the bright sun sank to rest,
Drawing all his sheaves of sunlight
To his garner in the west.

As Miss Hamilton crossed the threshold she looked back, and saw him for the last time writing already beside his desk. The next morning he was gone. He had taken passage in a vessel that sailed at dawn for Europe, and left the storm to break upon the heads of others.
In a few hours the world knew that John Hamilton was a ruined man; that in his ruin many others were involved; and that for ye
The river flow'd past with the light on its breast,
And the weeds went eddying by,
And the round red sun sank down in the west
When my love's loving lips to my lips were press'd
Under the evening sky.
Now weeping alone by the river I stray,
For my love he has left me this many a day,
Left me to droop and die!
As the river flow'd then the river flows still,
In ripple and foam and spray,
On by the church, and round by the hill,
And under the sluice of the old bu
