(Jiea'I at the Eighth Anniversary of the Young Men's Li
brary Association, Atlanta, August 19, 1875.;
BY CHABLES W. HUB NEB.
Wander with me, in fancy, to the heart
Of mighty hills, upon whose solemn brows
The imperishable beauty of the sky
Bests like a crown; whose gleamy tresses—wet
With heaven’s anointing dews—for aye outfling
Ineffable redolence on the fondling winds;
And in whose caverned bosoms lie, inurned,
Great mysteries of nature—star-born myths,
Whose meaning never, to our mortal ears,
Their stony lips shall utter.
As we lie
On the lush mosses, where wild lilies blow,
Our musing eyes will catch the crystal gleam
Of some fair fountain, leaping to the light
From out the arms of huge, gray-bearded stones;
And as it glides in many a wanton lapse,
With tender kiss and amorous embrace
Winning its way into the living world,
You might reach down, and with an acorn’s cup
Detain the tiny Naiad in her cell,
And stifle her iaint music. But the bars
Yield to the lovely truant; headlong down
Precipitous pathways speeding, prone it falls
Into the lap of the rejoicing fields;—
The infant rill, which with an acorn’s cup
Thou couldst have prisoned in its cradle lair,
Or lightly thrust from its appointed path
W r ith a stray rose-leaf, in its channel cast,
Now, to a laughing rivulet swiftly grown,
And dancing to its own soft rythmus, sweeps
Thro’ gleaming realms of grain; thro’ hermit nooks
Lit by the fairy torches of the flowers ; m
Through balmy breathed woodlands, where the birds
Mock the sweet fervor of its pilgrim song;
By sunny villages; through dusky towns
W’here whirling mill-wheels beat its quivering sides,
And Steam, the giant, on its breast astride,
Drinks from its throbbing lips unfailing power;—
. On sweeps the flood, with ever-waxing pride,
A mighty river, rushing to the sea!—
And draining, thus, in bread, majestic flow
The life and beauty of an hundred lands,
The blitheful babbling nymphet of the hills
Assumes the god-like in her seaward race!
The billowy, ever-widening Splendor glow’s
With the rich largess of a thousand founts,
• Poured from the silver urns of arctic snows,
Or by the dewy southwind’s pinion dropp’d
From fragrant groves of palm.
Anon ’twill greet
Imperial Ocean, on his azure throne—
Casting her sceptre down (a vassal Queen)
At the dread Titan’s feet, into his caves
She pours the harvest of her ripened power;
So sharing, with his greater potency,
A sovereignty that holds the wheeling globe
To its divinely-fixed, predestined course,
And safe through cycling spheres impels it.
Will human thought, slow-gathering drop by drop,
As in the hills deep heart a river’s fount,
Increase the form and beauty of our dreams,
And fashion them for noblest purposes;
In all the dim recesses of the heart
The living rills of thought leap to the light;
Along the shadowy vistas of the brain
Fancy's far-twinkling currents endless glide,
With music rarer than the May-wind charms
From lily bells, to greet the waking Spring !
E’en with close-listening heart we cannot tell
The purport of their being, nor conceive,
As yet, the Presence whose angelic hand,
.Bifting the rosy skies, with tender touch
Shall take the seal from off our darkened eyes.
But from serene inspirements of the air,
And the glad birds—which are its singing soul;
From the gray Spirit of the mountains, throned
Within the magic circle of the stars,
Wherein do dwell the sphynx-lipp’d Destinies;
From the vast, temple-arched, primeval w’oods,
Where voiceful Nature, in her vestal robes,
Praises her God from many an odorous shrine;
From the life-giving sun; from fern and flower
Decking the crowned Year; from all fair things,
Celestial promptings will inform the soul;—
Aye, from the rude and mystic, knowledge comes—
From storms that blind the shudd’ring Night with fire,
From floods and earthquakes; from the bliss and wo
Forever inter-blending, that doth make
The human heart itself more wonderful,
And stranger in the mystery of its powers,
Than all the elements, whose fashion makes
The comeliness and stature of the w’orld—
From all of these the quickened soul w’ill drain,
Unceasingly, her heavenly sustenance,
Widening her vision’s scope, and so increase
The strength, and sea-like pulsing of great thoughts;
These will the rolling seasons gather up
And store away in books; as drifted gold
Is heaped in the abysses of the sea;—
Therefore the Book is but the treasury
Of man's immortal essence, where the soul
May keep the crown and signet of her state
Safe from the baleful ravages of Time,
And coin, for gracious use, the heavenly powers,
That, God-like, lift us to the eternal stars.

To come nearer home, we introduce “the witch
of Charleston,” South Carolina—whom many of
your readers remember as “Salvo”—as being
further illustrative of this form of prophetic
power. Madame Salvo was known for more than
a half century as a most wonderful fortune-teller,
and died recently at an advanced age in Charles
ton, leaving behind her prophetic declarations
which, whether they concern the individual or
the country, will be long remembered by thou
sands who have been under the shadow of her
horoscope. There is now living in Winsboro,
South Carolina, an eminent lawyer and gallant
soldier, whose statement with regard to the fore
cast of Madame Salvo (given not in generalities,
but with incidental precision, and long before
there was any indication of the events happen
ing), is not less wonderful than the prophecy of
Materialists may reason as they please, but
until some other method is discovered of arriv
ing at a conclusion other than that announced
by Lord Bacon—until facts upon which a prem- j
ise is to be based are removed or proven not to
be facts—we must recognize a relation between
the supernatural and the natural—between the
mortal and the immortal—between man and god,
and man and devils.
[For The Sunny South.]
Solomon was a wise man. yet he did and said
some foolish things. The sentence, “He that
spareth the rod hatetli his son,” has in all ages
been used as authority for cruel stripes inflicted
upon helpless children. The more intelligent
and more refined people resort to it less than the
more ignorant and more savage. There is less
of trouble to the average parent in the terror of
the whip than in the gentler methods which sug
gest themselves to better people. The right to
inflict punishment, coupled with the child's
knowledge of that right—from the exercise of
which no appeal exists—is essential to family
government; but this right, and this knowledge
added to the purpose of using it in the last re
sort, makes it rarely necessary when in the hands
of a good man or woman.
Good precept and good example are worth
more than good whipping.
After all, this is something the law cannot
reach; to make better people is the only remedy.
The statement in a newspaper a few days ago
that Mr. , of , had accidentally
killed bis wife while chastising his child, means
more than appeared upon the face of those few '
There was a savage, an angry, cowardly hus
band and father, a child heartlessly beaten, a
mother’s interposition, and her death theresult.
Yet that man, with a few lies and no witnesses
of his barbarity but the children who dread the
whip from which the dead mother attempted to
rescue one of them, will escape. Still, it is said
there is no hell. There ought to be. Abnot.
