Like to the perfumed summer breeze
That flits through azure holds above;
Wai the rich manly voice that woke
In her, the first sweet dream of love.
So, gentle, innocent and true,
Sion owned her head, its mystic power,
It Wound its thralls still closer 'round,
41,1 d love grew stronger hour by hour.
Oh, the was beautiful, her brow
Was pure and white as drifted snow,
And her downy cheeks were daintily tinged
With the crimson life-currents ebb and
Her hair was golden, like bright threads of
And her soft lustrous eyes,
0' r-brimmed with tenderness, and their
bright hue -
Clihred kindred with Dallas skies.
A las-! that he who woke this dream,
iVais treacherous, vile and vain ;
Ire cared nut for the heart he wrecked;
It 'gave him pleasure - thus to give her
He knew her love for 121 m ame warm and
He knew it was to her lifes sweetest part;
Fie coldly bade her to forget. thus said adieu.
And lett ber with a breaking heart.
He left her in a strangers home.
To wish each day that she were dead;
He left ber with the crushing word
That in one path they might not tread.
And others came with kindly words
To win her from corroding grief;
Gently she put them all aside, and said,
That naught but death could bring relief.
A titled honored head in homage bent
At this poor broken lilys shrine;
Love, , he bad not to give, she said,
Nor name, nor fortune—" They are not
Pining. she lived—so fading day by day,
Until she seemed no toore.of earth apart,
At length one summer eve she passed away .
'Twas thus she lived, and thus she died,
Died of a bioken heart !

But where will her deceiver rest ?
Ah, whither can he fly?
To escape the sin that's on
The curse that's ever nigh ?

Struggle in a Chimney--A Fearful Po-
A. man will go blind, and irad, too.
from fear; I have seen it happen. and if
yon don't mind listening, I will tell you
the story. I was apprenticed toe build
re when I left school. and soon got to
like the trade very much, especially
when the work was perilous. and g•tve
me a chance to outdo the other lads in
daring. ••Spider" was my nickname in
those days, given partly on account of
myslong legQ, for I had outgrown my
proport:ons, and partly because they
said I could crawl shrug a roof like my
names.ke. When I was about three
and-twenty, I was working with the fa
mous Mr. —, and „ant down to Swan
sea, with his picked hands, to carry out
a contract he bad taken in that town.—
While there, I fell in love with the pret
tiest girl 1 had seen in Wales, and that
is sayine a good deal. Fora time I fan
cied she liked me, and that I was getting
on very, well with my love making, but I
soon found my mistake, for an old lover
of hers joined our men, and Mary gave
me the cold shoulder directly. You may
believe this sweetheart of hers (who was
• tilled Ben Lloyd) and I were not the
best of friendit in the world; but 1. am
* hot the sort of fellow to harbor malice,
and when the hiddings to the wedding
went round, and I knew that my chance
was gone, I made the best of it. I kept
my sore heart. to myself, and determiued
to beat down jealousy by being great
chums with Ben.
H. T. STITZER
I went to the wedding, and there were
not many days when I did not steal half
en hour to sit by his fireside, which was
as bright and cozy and homelike as you
would wish to see—Mary being the soul
of crier and industry. It. is not, per.
bops, the usual way of driving out envy,
to go and look at the happiness another
man has done you out of. but then you
know the proverb says, "What is one
man's meat is another man's poison; ".
and so it was I got to look upon Mary as
a sort of Sister, and Ben had , no cause for
jealousy, although there were plenty of
evil tongues ready to put him up to it.
The contract was nearly up when a
lightning conductor upon one of the high
est chimneys, over 'at tlanelly sprang,
and the owner of the works offered our
Master the job.
" It's just the sort of thing for you,
Harry," said Mr -, when be told
us of it.
I touched my cap and accepted it off
hand, and then Ben stepped up and said
h'ed volunteer to be the second man,two
"All right," said the mister, "you are
the steadiest-headed fellows I have. The
price is a good one, and every penny of
it shall be divided between you. Vie'll
not fix a day for the work, but take the

So it was that, some four or five morn

Ben, in a strange tone; and •turning to

"You're not frightened, old chap?" I
"What's that to you?"

Then looking up, I saw we were close to
the top,---a few yards more and we would

win.tlass were winding with unatmting
speed. A sudden chill ran through my
blood, and set my flesh creeping. They
had miscalculated the distance, and with
the "force they were winding at, the rope
must inevitably break when the cradle
came in contact with the block. There
was no time to attempt a signal, only an
instant to point out the danger to Ben,
and then to get hold of the rope, and, by
going hand over band, reach the coping
before the cradle came up. Tbis was
done almost quicker than I can tell you,
The cradle came on; then, as I antici
pated, the rope gave a shrill, singing
sound like a rifle .ball passing through
the air, and snapped. Down went the
cradle, and there we were left, nearly
eight hundred feet in the air, with noth
ing to rest upon but a coping barely
eighteen inches wide.
Ben shrieked out that he was a dead
man, and cried:
"Tell me where I can kneel, Harry,
show me where I can pray to Almighty
God, for I cannot die this way !"
"Hush lad," I said, "don't lose heart.
God t can hear you just. as well sitting as
kneeling, and if you try to get up, you'll
tumble, to a moral certainty. Think of
Mary, man, and keep up."

"Get bold of the rod," I said, thinking
that. even sprung as it was, the touch of

which was turned to me, I saw that his
eyes were dra wn together. squinting and
blood hot, and knew that the fright hod
driven him blind. So, pushing myself
to hint, I placed my . arm around his
waist, ann worked round to the rod,which
I put in his hand; and then I looked be
low to see whether they were trying to
help us, but there was uo sign. The

all in the greatest consternation—the
cradle having fallen on one of the over
seers of the works, killing him .on the
spot, and so occupying the attention of
those near that we were for the time for

hope of seeing sonic effort made to help
us. when I was startled by a horrible
yell, and brought to a sense of a new
danger, for, looking around, I saw Ben
champing with his teeth and foaming at
the mouth, and gesticulating in an un
earthly way. Fear had not only blinded
him, but crazed his brain.
Scarcely had I time to comprehend
this, when he began edging his way tow
ards me, and every hair on my head
seemed to stand en end as 'moved away,
keeping as far off as I moved away, and,
scarcely daring to breathe, lest he should

watching, with aching eye and brain,for
some sign of aid. Each minute seemed
to be an hour. My lips
: grew dry, my
tongue literally clove to my mouth, and
the perspiration running down, blinded
me. At last—at last—hope came. The
crowd began to gather in the yard, peo
ple were running in from distant lanes,
and a sea of faces were turned upward;
then some one who had got a speaking
trumpet shouted, —Keep heart, boys;
we'll save you!" a few minutes more and
the kite began to rise; higher and high

the white-winged messenger, comparing
it in my heart to an angel; and surely,
as an angel was it permitted to come to

and we were saved.
I could not shout hurrah, even bad I
dared: but in every beat of my heart was
a thanks-giving to the God I bad never
truly known till that. hour, and whose
merciful Providence I can never doubt
The block was fixed, the cradle came
up again, and Ben, obeying my order,
got in. I followed; but no sooner did I
touch him than he began trying to get
out. I got bold of him, and, taking it
in his bead that I was attempting to
throw him over, he struggled and fought
like the madman he was, grappling, tear
ing with his teeth, shouting, shrieking,
and praying all the way down, while the
cradle strained and cracked, swinging to
and fro like the pendulum of a clock. As
we came near the ground, I could bear
the roar of voiees, and an • occasional
cheer, then suddenly all was silent, for
they had heard Ben's cries, and when
the cradle touched the ground scarcely a
man dared look in. The first who did,
saw a horrible sight; for, exhausted by
the struggle and excitement, so soon as
the cradle bad stopped I had fainted,and
Ben, feeling my bands relax, had fasten
ed his teeth into my neck !
No wonder the men fell back with
blanched faces--they saw that Ben was
crazed; but they thought he had killed
me; for, as they said, he was actually
worrying me like a dog.
At last the master got to us and pulled
Ben off me. I soon came round, but it
was a long time before he got well, poor
fellow; and when he did come out of the
asylum he was never fit for his old trade
again, so he and Mary went ont to Aus
tralia, and the last I heard of them was
that Ben bad jot a couple of thousand

DYERSBURG. August, 5, 1868
r Ng Own Dear Fred:—Every time I
think of you, my heart dope up and down
like a churn dasher. Sensations of. un
utterable joy caper over it, like young
goats over a stable roof, and thrill thro'
it likeSpanishneedles through tow-linen
trowsers. As a gosling swimmeth with
delight in a mudpuddle, so swim I in a
sea of glory. 14 iFfiutlS of ecstatic rapture,
thicker than the hair of a blacking brush,
and brighter than the hues on a bum
ming bird's pinions, visit me in my slum
bers, and, borne on their invisible wings,-
your image stands before me, and I reach
out to grasp it, like an old pointer snap•
ping at a blue bottle fly.
When I first beheld your saintly per
fections I was bewildered, and my brain
whirled around like a humble-bee under
a glass tumbler; my eyes stood open like
cellar-doors in the country towns, and I
lifted up my ears to catch the silvery ac
cents of your voice. My tongue refused
to wag, and in silent admiration I drank
in the sweet infection of love.as a thirsty
man swalloweth a tumbler of hot whis-
Since the light of your face fell upen
my life. I sometimes feel as if I could
lift up myself by my shoe-straps to the
top of a church steeple. Day and night
you are in my thoughts. When "Auro
ra," blushing like a bride, rises from her
saffron couch; when the jay-bird piped
his tuneful lay in the apple tree by the
springhouse; when the chanticleer's
shrill clarion heralds the coming morn;
when the awakened pig ariseth from his
bed, and goeth forth for hie morning re
freshments; when the drowsy beetle
wheels his droning flight at sultry noon
tide, and when the lowing cows come
home at milk time, I think of thee. And
like a piece of gnm-olastin my heart
seems to stretch clear across my bosom.
Your hair is like the mane of a sorrel
horse painted with gold, and the brass
elide to your immaculate neck-tie fills me
with unbounded awe. Your forehead is
smoother than an old coat, and whiter
than seventaen-hundred linen. Your
eyes are glorious to behold. In their
liquid depths I see legions of -little cu
pids battling and fighting like cohorts
of ants in an old army cracker. When
their fire hit me full in the womanly
breast, it perforated my entire anatomy
like a load of bird shot would go through
a rotten apple. Your nose is from

puckers with sweetness.__Nectar Hamm
on your lips like honey on a bird's paw,
and myriads of unfledged kisses are there
ready to fly out and light somewhere like
blue-birds cut of their parent nest. Your
laugh rings on my ears like the wind
barp's strain, or the bleat. of a stray lamb
on the bleak hill side. The dimples in
your cheeks are like bowers in beds of
roses, or like hollows in cakes of home
