THE SOLDIER’S FAREWELL. BT BOSCAW SS. "Farewell, my love ! farewell, my hearths delight I I join the ranks to fight for liberty ; Though parted now, we yet shall reunite:— My light, my life, farewell! Remember me ! I go to lands with softest verdure clad, But leave my heart, ’tis all I have, with thee ; From my fond eyes thy form can never fade,—' Oh, fear thou not! . Farewell! Remember me! But lest my absence seem to thee too Jong, The nightingale my messenger shall be; And, to beguile the time, her plaintive song Shall tell thee of my constant love for thee. One little year !— think of the year that’s past: How short to us that season seemed to be ! And though the sands of this rnn net so fast, The end will come. Farewell! Remember me! But, should stern Fate my hoped return delay, Or death, which only can. keep me from thee, Though in a nameless grave my frame decay, Thou hast my heart. Farewell! Remember me 1 * {Saturday Evening Gazette. "Washing out a Debt. —We heard a good story yesterday of a popular fire man, who a few years ago resided in this city. He was not only in good standing with his company, but in good credit with his landlord, who was keeper of the tavern. Mine host did not register his accounts by double entry, nor make his entries with indelible ink; his ledger was a folding slate, one half of which was covered over with the debts of the gen erous fireman. On a certain occasion the establish ment took fire, the alarm was given, and very soon the firemen were present to suppress it. They knew that our hero was a boarder there, and for the safety of his property their anxiety was first evinced. “Ha, Bill,” says one, “throw down your trunk.” “O, Bill,” says another, “wait there and we’ll . put up a ladder for you to come down by. ” ■ * Hold on there for a minnte, boys, and I’ll tell you what to do,’ says Bill. He disappeared for moment, and in a moment again he was at the window’, holding the double-up but now un doubled slate, in his hands before him, which bore on its face the sole r#eord of his indebtedness to ‘the bouse. ‘ There! there! now, ’ says Bill, speak ing in that tone of authority which his office in the company authorized him to use, ‘play away on the slate, No. 7 !’ No. 7 promptly obeyed orders, and in a very few minutes the slate was—a blank. The simple water washed aw 7 ay all Bill’s brandies and water. ‘Enough, boys,’ said Bill, closing up the slate, ‘it’s a regular open and shut game. If Mrs. Mickson has any charge against me, let her produce her vouch ers.’ A. compromise was effected, and a new account opened. “I Will, if I Bust.*’—A tall, long-leg ged Yankee from Vermont, distinguished by a little head perched on a crane's neck, accoutred with a swallow-tailed coat, and pantaloons that refused to be coaxed down to his ankles, boots shining with tallow, and hat that scorned over half a» inch of brim, stalked into a hotel in Bos ton, last week, to get what he called a “fancy dinner.” Being seated at the ta ble, and asked by the servant what he would have: “Wall, I swan, I don’t know,” said he, casting his eyes down the long array of fricandeaux, cotellettes, ragouts, alto gether “kickshaw T s” on the bill of fare, which confounded him with their variety while he despaired of grappling with them all— “what would you take, squire, if you were in my place ? I can t eat all es I never was to have another meal of Tittles from now till spring.” “Wonldif*t you like some soup ?” said the waiter. - > “Wall, squire, you’re bout right, I reckon ; bring on your soup, and then I’ll pitch into your biled vittles. . You tax all the same they say, anc’it’s hard choosfn’—so 111 jist try one plate through the lot—l will , if I bust ! And he did.
