EVENING STAR. fFrom Alexander Smith's New Book of Poema.l BARBARA. On the Sabbnth-dar. Through thochurchrard old and fray. Over the crisp and yehow leaves. I neld my rust And arnwMhV words of merer, falling on my soal hketm'ms. 'Mid t h*- gorge.>ua storms o( musio?m the mellow organ calms, 'Mid the upward streaming prayers, and the rich and solemn pmlmi, I stood careless, Barbara. My heart was otherwhere, \\ bile the organ shook the air. And the priest, with outspread hands. Messed the people with a pray er ; But, when rising to go homeward, with a mild and saint-like shine Gleamed a faceofairy beauty with its heavenly eyes tin mine? G.earned and vanished in a niumet?O that lace was surely thine Out of heaven. Barbara. 0 pallid, pallid fac? ! 4} earnest eyes of grace ! When iast 1 saw thee dearest, it was in another place. You oame running firth to meet me with my lore t,ft on your wrist; The flutter of a long white dress, then all was lost in mist? A pnrp> wain of agonr was on the mouth I kissed ; That wild morning. Barbara. 1 searched, in iny despair. Sunns noon an.t midnight air; 1 oourd not driv? away the thought that you were lingering there, 0 man* ai.d iuu>y a winter night 1 sat when you were gone. My W'>rnlace buried in my hands, betide the fire alone? Within the dripping churchyard, the rain plashing on your stone. You were sleeping, Barbara. Wlong angels, do you think Ot tiio precious golden lmk 1 ciajp"d around your happy arm, while sitting by yon brink? Or wiien that night of gliding dance, of laughterand guitars, "Was emptied of its music, aiid we watched through lattice tars. The si'ent imduuht heaven creeping o'er us with its stars. Till the day broke. Barbara? I n t he years I've changed. Wild and far my heart hath ranged. And many sir.s and errors now nave l?een on me avenged; But toTnu I hare been faithful, whatsoever good lacked; 1 loved ?ou.ard above my life still hangs that love intact? Your love the trembling rainbow, I the reckless cataract ? Htjll I love you. Barbara. Yet. love, I am nnbiest; With many doubts oppresf. 1 wander like a desert wind, without a p'aee of rest Could I but win you for an hour from off that starry ?horn, Tne hunger of my soul were stilled, for Death hath tola you mure Than the ine'ancholy world doth know; thingsdeepe than al! lor* You could teach me, Bartara. In vain, in vain, in vain. You will never oome again. There droops upon the dreary hills a mournful fringe of rain: The gloaming closes s'owly round, loud winds are in the tree. Round s' fish shores for ever tn^ans the hurt and wounded sea. There is no rest upon the earth, peace is with Dea'h and thee, Barbara Sixgclar Cas? or lNFA5TtciT>ii?The Evans ?ille Journal thus speak* of the crime of a wo man. Sarah Berlwell. now on trial In Sullivan county, for infanticide: It will be recollected that, on the a-rest of the prisoner, it was chared that the crime had been committed wrb the complicity of her own bro ther. who was arrested with her. but was subse quently released on hail. Thev were both to be tried at the present term. The girl, on her exam 1 nation before t!\e magistrate made a confession She was living at the time in her brother's fatn ily. consisting of tlve or six persons?the child was t?orn during the absence of the family to a neigbor's. when there was only a small girl in the hoi;?*. Iininediatelv after its birth, she took it into the field one hundred and fifty vards from the house. and placed it in a sunn ami covered it ore: with baik and leaves; she returned to her b*-d and the next morning rose and performed her duties, concealing all trace* of what bid hap|?eii ed from the family. She did not know wiiether the child was born dead or alive; it did not cry. and she did not wish it to live It wis ?ul?se quently taken from the stump and buried by a man. "Who the man was she refused to tell, or make any jo knowledgments of the paternity of the child, and in this she persists up to the pres ent date. After her committal to prison she at tempted suicide by starvation, and for the spa^-e of twentv-one davs refrained entirely, as the she riff sa:d. from taking any food. Finding it In a ?low process of dyint;. she repented and gave It up, and is now on trial.

The city of Sin Do mingo appears to have Wn the only place in the republic which sustained Baez. The insurgents ?Assembled t.UN) troops before the city, and Baez. it Is said, has l>een obliged to leave it.
