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 flow; Her hair was golden, like bright threads of light, • 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 pain. He knew her love for 121 m ame warm and true ; 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 mine." 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 ! * ! * * * 0 * But where will her deceiver rest ? Ah, whither can he fly? To escape the sin that's on nigh soul, The curse that's ever nigh ? God pitylim and forgiva, oftimes pray 1, This atime of deepest dye! • Looal's GAP, PA. GEO. M. YOCUM Sel.ect Miscellany. 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. ja20'69.1y " 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 being required. "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 first calm morning and get it done quiet ly." So it was that, some four or five morn ings after, we found ourselves at Llanel ly, and all ready for the start The kite by which the line attached to the block was to be sent over the chimney was flown, and did its work well; the rope For the Republican. THE BROKEN HEART. . BY C• C. m's anion. which was to haul up the cradle was ready, and stepping in, Ben and I began the ascent. There . had been vary few people about when we entered the yard, but as we got higher I Raw that. the news had spread, and that the streets were filling with sight-seers. , There's plenty of star-gazers, Ben,". I said waving my cap to them. ,•'ldare say they'd like to see us come down with a run." "Cannot you keep quiet?" answered Ben, in a strange tone; and •turning to look, I saw'that he was deadly pale, and eat in the bottom of the cradle hudd!ed up together, with his eyes fast shut. "You're not frightened, old chap?" I asked. "What's that to you?" "Oh, nothing: only we are getting up pretty quickly, and you'd have a better head for work if you would get gradual ly used to the height." Ile maid nothing, and never moved.— Then looking up, I saw we were close to the top,---a few yards more and we would he there; yet those who were turning the 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, Ben following. 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." But be only shook and swayed more and- more,- growains-and-t hal - he was lost; and I could see that, if he did not mind, be would overbalance. "Get bold of the rod," I said, thinking that. even sprung as it was, the touch of it would give him courage. •• Where is it, boy ?'' he said, hoarse ly. And then looking into his face, 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 I - 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 yet 0 was full of people,all running hith er and thither,and. sal afterwards knew, 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 gotten. I was straining my eyes, in she 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 hear me, for see me he could not—that was my only consolation Once, twice, thrice, be followed me around the mouth of that. horrible chimney; then, no donht thinking I bad fallen over, he gave up the search, end began trying to get 'on his feet. What could I now do to save his life? To touch him wascertain death for myself, as well as for him, for be would inevitably seize me, and we should go over together To let him stand up was to witness his equally certain de- Swindon. I thought of poor Mary, and I remem bered that if he died she might get to oaie for me. The devil put that thought in my mind, I suppose; but, thank God, there was a stronger than Satan near, and, at the risk of my life, I roared out, "Sit still, or you will fall, Ben Lloyd!" lie crouched down, and held on with clenched teeth. shivering and shaking. "Sit itill,"lrepeated,from time to time. 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 er it comes, on and on. How I watched the white-winged messenger, comparing it in my heart to an angel; and surely, as an angel was it permitted to come to us, poor sinners, hanging on the verge of eternity. Bp it came, nearer.and near er and nearer, guided by the skillful fly er. The slack-rope crossed the chimney, 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 again. 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 sheep and was doing well. I gave np the trade, too, soon after, finding that I got queer in the head when I tried to face height. So, you see, that morning's work changed two men's lives. A Model Love. Story.

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- ky punch. 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 . a chunk of Parian marble, and yourmouth 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 made sugar. I am dying to fly.-to ,your presence, and to pour out the burning eloquence of my love ss a thrifty housewife pours out the hot coffee. Away from you, lam melancholy as a sick rat.

You are fairer than the speckled pullet, sweet er than a Yankee doughnut fixed in sor ghum molasses; brighter than the top hot plumage on the 'head of a Muscovy duck. You are candy-time', ratline, pout:lake, and sweetened toddy, alto- gather. If these few remarks will enable you to see the inside of.my soul, and win to me your affections, I shall be as happy as the bird ifta cherry tree, or a stage horse in a green pasture. If you cannot reciprocate my thrilling passion, I will feel terrible pain, and I will pine away like a poisoned bed-bug, and fall from the flourishing vine of life, like , an un timely branch.
