EVENING STAR. X40HT OF TKK AGED. An old nun sat la the ran set gold, By the door of the cottage low; HI* soft white hair, his reverent air, His holy smile, all told His work was finished belew. Children played at the old man's feet, Three gsnda, blue-eyed girla; Their mother had pliyed in the cottage shade, With footsteps light and fleet, And waving golden curia. His heart was warm to that little hand, Bright in the setting sun, And he said, ''Oh, Lord, 1 trust thy word, I see the promised land, And 1 know my work is done. I thankth** for the pleasant waya in which my feet Lav* irodj 1 bless for all, Wh great and small, But moit for ?!iese 1 praise Thy gbodness, on, my God!" Then ? matron stepped from the cottage door, A matron fair to see: Her hand he laid on the old man's head; "Father, 1 thank God o'er and o'er, But olers him most for thee!" Diabolical Act ?On Wednesday night, be tween six and seven o'clock, ad a gravel train was backing down the Lafayette road, some four or live tniles from tho city, at a point near Crooked Creek, where the track runs for some distance upon piles, the train ran over some obstruction placed upon the road, and was thrown off, severely injuring one man and hurting two or three others considerably. * ourteen cars werethrown off out of seventeen. On examining the track, it was found that some one had laid a heavy plank across it and it had evidently been done but a few minute as the gravel where the board had been lying on the embankment was still damp, marking the outlines distinctly, and moreover a train had passed up without accident only an hour before. As the evening train with a very large number of passenger* returning from the convention was expectcd op abont tbe time the gravel train came down, there is good reason to suspect that some inhuman scoundiel did it with the purpose of killing, it is impossible to guess, how m.tny persons. The destruction of life would have been unparaW It lied in the but iry of railroad disaster*. The plank wae placed where the train would have been thrown not down an embankment, but sheer down the ground a considerable dis tance. And with the hundreds of persons crowding the cars ^ there were probably a thous and on the tiain) the destruction would have been appalling beyond parallel. As fourteen heavily loaded gravel cars were thrown off. we can hardly doubt that every pafeenger car would have been hurled with terrific force against the ground below. We have nevtr been called upon to record a more diabolical act than this. There is a depth of depravity about it that even the poisoning era of Italy cannot equal. Tho paisenger train arrived in a very few moments after the accident to the gravel train, so that it j escape was owing solely to the ac cidental arrival of the grarel cars aj few mi nutes ahead of it.?Indianapolis Journal. Aug. 31*/. Last Moxrtts of a Rcssia* Apkiral ? A letter in the Gazette Militaire, giving an account of the last moments of Admiral Nach imofl at Sebastopol, says: 44 Conscious that his end was approaching, he turned to the sea men by his side, and said,1 My children, never forget to hoist the cross, (i. e. the cross of the Russian flag of war,) at the mainmast in pret ence cf the enemy, as you did at Sinope.' The <ieath of Nachim-.ff ha* put th? garrison of Se vastopol, and especially tho senmen, by whom he was adored, to deepair. Gen. Khroulefl. w.:o rivals him in intrepidity, uttered these wor ld as they placed him in the coffin: -? Mountains of enemies' corpses, brave sea man, anal! be thy monument!" 44 Da budet tak. (Lit it be to,) ehoutcd the regiment, who assisted at the funeral ceremony. A Pbophetic Sosg.?The following is from a soldier's letter printed hy the Kiimarnosk hroiiicle; 44 The other night 1 was on the en tieachinent*. and a good number of us were sitting together amusir-g ourselves. One was *l: o'n? a ?ong called 4 Mary weep no more lor w#; in which occur these beautiful line*? Far. far from thee 1 sleep in death, So, Mary, weep no more for me, wh :d a shell came in and burnt among us, and killed the man while he was singing the song. T never was bo vexed fur any one in my life; it opened his skull completely, and he died in an instant." Leab:ii!*0 THB Rofei.?A sailor, in de acribing his first efforts to becomc nautical *.-id that just at the close of a dark night he was sect aloft to see if he could Bee a light. As he was not a favorite with the lieutenant he was not hailed for some hours. 44 Aloft, there!" at last was heard from the lieutenant! "Ay, ay, air!" 44 Do you see a light?" 44 Yes, sir." 44 What light?" "Daylight, by jingo!" Id?* A witty gentleman of this city, speak ing of a friend who was prcatratod by illness, remarked that 44 he could hardly recover, sinco his constitution was all gone." 44 If his constitution is all cone," said a bystander, *?
