POETRY. The Ballad of the Bell-Tower. BT MARGARET J. PRESTOS. “Firs ysars ago i vowed to heaven upon my falchion blade To baud the tower: and to this hour my vow hath not been paid. “When from the eagle’s nest I snatched my lalcon bearted dove, And In my breast shaped her a nest, safe and warm lined with love, “Not all the hells in Christendom, if rung with fer vent might, That happy day in jangllngs gay had told my joy “As up the aisle my bride I led In that triumphant hour, I ached to hear some wedding-cheer clash from the minster tower. “Nor chime nor tower the minster had; so In my soul I sware. Come loos, come let, that I would set church-bells a ringing there ‘‘Before a twelvemonth. But ye know what forays lamed the laid, How seasons went, and wealth was Spent, and all wero weak of hand. “And then the yearly harvest failed (’twas when my bov was born); Bat could I build while vassals filled my cars with cries lor corn? “Thereafter happed the heaviest woe, and none could help or save; Nor was there bell to toU a knell above my Hertha’s grave. “Ah, had I held my tow supreme aU hindrance to control, j Maybe these woes—God knows 1 God knows—had never crushed my soul. “Bv'n now ye bog that I give o’er; ye say the scant Of water & In lowland rales, and mountain-springs are dry. “ ‘Here bo the quarried stones’ (ye grant), ‘skilled craftsmen come at call; Bat with no more ot water-store how can we build the wall?* I “Nay, listen; Last year’s vintage crowds onrcellars, tnn on ton; With wealth of wine for yours and mine, dare the work go undone? “Quick! bring thorn forth, these mighty bntts; let none be elsewhere sold, — And t will pay this very day their almost worth in gold, “Thai so the mortar that cements each stone within the shrine. For her dear sake whom God did take, may all he mixed with wine.” #•••«*• ’Twas thus the baron built his tower; and as the •tory tolls, A fragrance rare bewitched the air whene’er they rang tho hells. A merrier music tinkled down when harvest-days wsro long; _ They seemed to chime at vintage-time a catch of vintage-song; And when the rnts were foamed with mast, ir any lolteiednear auo luiustcr iuww, vesper uuur, auuvu uiiu ue would bear Tingllngs, as of subsiding trills, athwart the purple gloom. And every draught of air he quaffed would taste of vineyard bloom. —Lippincott’i Magazine. From tbe Maine State Press or June 1,18T6. History of Seven Days. The News far the week ending Wednesday Bight. Bay 31. THg NATIONAL CAPITAL. President Grant has made a proclamation pursuant to the resolve of Congress requesting the people to assemble in their various towns and counties the approaching Fourth of July for the purpose of listening to orations on tbe history of the settlement of tbeir respective localities, and that a copy of such historical address be sent to the Librarian of Congress. Tbe Senate franking bill provides that it shall be lawful for the mails to carry such let ters and other mail matter sent by Congress men as they shall endorse as official business. It also provides that letters of official business may be sent free to Congressmen. Secretary Robeson has addressed tbe Honse Naval Committee a letter requesting a public hearing. He has been assailed by witnesses whom be has not been allowed to cross-exam ine, and the committee have allowed the most damaging of this ex parte testimony to get into newspapers. The Secretary bas prepared a de fence which is said to be very strong. His points are that he cannot become conversant with all the abnsee in tbe navy yards—abases which have existed since their establishment; he scarcely knows a naval contractor; ha has had little to do with the contracts, leaving tbe tame to their proper bureau; tbe Cattell and other transactions were had with paymasters and not with him. Congress gets along slowly. All of the ap propriation bills are not yet completed, and moat of them have yet to be considered by tbe Senate. Tbe Secretary oi the Treasury has directed tbe retirement of $404,208 of legal tenders, that being 80 per cent, of tbe national bank eircnlation issued during the present month. This leaves the outstanding greenback circnla Hon #370,123,668. The House hss raised a committee to investi gate the rumors to the effect that 8300,000 was paid members of that body to get the Sand wich Islanda treaty legislation. The appointment of Don Cameron as Secre tary of War provokes general comment, the Interpretation being that it was the result of an understanding between the President and Mr. Conkling to help the latter’s Presidential aspirations. It works badly. TME SLANDER MILLS. The slander business goes on. It was proved la the Shea of the alleged Little Bock bonds Vhieft weaa given to Mr. Blaine that the pack age wee simply a map of certain coal lands, which was sent to him and delivered and thrown apoa a table In his public office in VaahiwMtan. The basis of the last assault will Pc fanod elsewhere. ■paakar Ken aow knows how pleasant it is to have slanderers after him. The whole thiDg m more faliy eat forth elsewhere. POLITICAL. Dakotah territory has elected aniostructed delegate* to Cincinnati. Kansas delegates are all for Blaine. The Spencer wing of the Ala bama Bepnblicans will send Morton delegates. 1 The California delegates to St Louis and the Michigan delegates are for Tilden. The Ken tucky delegation is unpledged. Democratic conventions to elect delegates to 81 Ieuis were held in Missouri, Maryland, Tirgiala and Alabama yesterday. The Mary land delegation is for Bayard, the Missouri claimed between Hendricks, Bayard and Til den and the preferences of the others are not reported. The Iowa Bapnblicans yesterday elected a full Blaine delegation to Cincinnati and adopt ed a resolution endorsing Mr. Blaine. The Louisiana Bepnblicans elected a Morton dele gation. CONGRESS. Thursday, May 25.—In the Senate a petition was presented asking that a permanent Cen tennial star be placed on the national banner. Mr. Paddock, from the Post Office Committee, reported a biU to restore the franking privilege. The Civil Service Committee reported back the vetoed bill to fix the salary of the Presi dent at 835,000, recommending that the bill be passed over the veto. In the House Mr. Mor rison presented and advocated a bill to sim plify the tariff, and Mr. Hewitt, of the Foreign Affairs Committee, renorted on the investiva tion relative to tbe connection of Minister Schenck with tbe Emma mine, Tbe result is that while there is no evidence Implicating Gen. Schenck with any fraud in connection with the affair that such connection was incompati ble with his diplomatic station. The report was aooepted. Friday, May 26. —In the Senate the railroad committee reported a bill to create a sinking fund for the Pacific ltailroad. In the House, a resolution appointing J. H. Patterson, of New Jersey, Doorkeeper of the House vice Fitzhngh removed. No business of public im portance was transacted. Saturday, May 27.—The Senate spent the day on the impeachment jurisdiction question. In the House a large numbar of bills were pre sented, one of which provided for the reduc tion and consolidation of the army. The bill was taken up and considered without a vote. Monday, May 29.—The Senate spent the day over the question of jurisdiction in the matter of the impeachment of ex Secretary Belknap, and as a result voted 37 to 29 that it has au thority to try him for misdemeanors while in office. The House spent most of the session in talking over the Morrison tariff bill, which, it was generally conceded, would not be brought to a vote this session. Tuesday, May 30,— Neither branch was in session. Wednesday, May 31.—The Senate passed the Japanese indemnity bill with some amend ment. In the House the contested election case of Spencer against Morey was decided in favor of the latter. CHIMES AND CASUALTIES. Thomas W. Piper, the murderer of Mabel H. Young, was hung at Boston laBt Friday. He met his fate with complete immobility, betray ing no feeling even at the gallows. Samuel J. Frost, the Petersham murderer, was hung at Worcester the same day. He protested his in nocense of intentional murder. His head was twisted almost from his body.

Hale, a prominent citizen ot that place, and son-in-law of ex-Gov ernor Brown of Tennessee, by Wm. P. Walsh, postmaster.

Three white men, McCarle, Graham and Du morville, sleeping in camp in Iberville parish, La., were attacked by a negro, who killed Me Cardie and Graham with an axe and wounded Dumorville. The negro then plundered the camp and fled. VARIOUS MATTERS. Two years ago Mr. H. W. Edmands was pay ing teller of the Second National Bank of Bos ton, but the sum of $10,000 was missed from the safe and the consequences was his quiet discharge from the service of the institution, August 15tb, 1874. The directors believed him to be an hoenst man, but the fact stood that there was a deficiency of $10,000 for which he was responsible. They were content, however, with dropping him, taking no legal action for the recovery of the money. Since the sever ance of the connection with the bank, Mr. Ed mands has been engaged in the book business but, through all, he has been a suspected man. Last week his deliverence came in a simple way. His successo'r in the bank, Mr. Henry O. Fuller, while engaged at the safe, found the identical bills which had been missing for two years, in the safe near the jamb of the door, and in such a position that’every time the door was opened they were pushed farther out of sight. The Indians in the vicinity of the Black Hills are committing murders daily and stealing the jiiuj/cjij tuo guiu ocoAcio. a. pen i_y UL ^XU cinnatians who went there for pleasure were all murdered. The road from Black Hills is strewn corpses. On the 19th Indians attacked Caster City and burned the ammunition houses which in blowing up destroyed several houses. Gen. Crook’s expedition had at last accounts just got ready to move. BRIEF MENTION. James Gallatin of New York, died in Paris Monday of pneumonia.
