That i wa- iu love was a fact that did not
admit cf a shadow of dou! ?. I deported tnv
self like a person iu love: I talked like a per
son iu love; looked liko a person in love, and
felt like a person ia love. Tire affection that
had taken p s-ession of my youthful heart was
no every day one; I was also sure of that.—
There weren't words enough in t.-.e Engli.-h
languii.":- describe the Leich', depth, length
: and breadth of i's grandeur. It wao destiao-i
to be a pr-iiid accompaniment of the ages yet
to be; a fixed principle throughout eternity; a
; planet of surpassing beauty in the btoad Imv
, ens of home tffcetions. My love was return
ed the strong of my nineteen yea-'
i eld heart went out it! the direction of the most
: beautiful miideti in all shire, and iu re
tarn, scut the yearuiugs of her heart our to
meet mine. Twice a week, as the week catnc
around, I weu; up to the old brown home or
1 Dr. Stoddard, *o tell his daughter my lov< ,
j and a regularly listened to a recital ot its re
i turn from the red lips of my charming Ji
i net. The good doctor made merry at our ex
j rcn-c, and his jolly wife took a wicked jdess
; urc in constantly reminding us of our youth,
j Janet was lot tared by sly refer, noes to bcr
j pluyhoit-t; i:i tie shed, her long sleeved pina
j fores and pantilett. s of six months before;
while I was offered, while the doctors wife
wore a face of immovable sobriety, on old cu..t
of the doctor's fur my mother to ntak:- info a
dressing gowu for me.
We were, nevertheless, determined to be
married. We would steal slyly away fr m the
house while our cruel friends reposed iu the
arms of Morpheus; Lie us, on the wings of
love, to the nearest city; Janet would b-come
in a m-mem's time, Mrs. Jasoa Brown, and 1
Mrs. Jason Brown's husband.
At nee we set about making preparations
for this important journey. Everything, of
course, must be conducted with the greatest
seercsy. At twelve o'clock I was to leave my
home stealthily, get my father's grey nag noise
lessly out of the barn and harness her, and to
proceed to Janet. J„uct was (o te waiting tor
me at her chamber window. I was to place a
ladder at the same window, she was to descend
chat ladder, we were to fly down the old lane,
to the spot where the horse was fastened, and
then the wiud should not outrun us.
Toere was but one difficulty in the way.—-
J.".let's ro'.in was shared by her sister FtDny,
* little, mischievous, wicked creature ef elev
en wuia;r., who, to use Juliet's wed.*, 'was
awake at ail boars of the night.' There was
bat one way for us, if Fanny was arouse'!, ,sho
tuu-t be bribed into silence. For that pur
ple 1 placed in Janet's hand a round, shining
silver dollar. But Janet iiOft-icii assistance, so
she concluded to make Fanny ber confidant the
very tifiertioou .;elore we started, and in that
ease prevent all possibility of her raising tue
house by a sudden outcry.
Weil, the loug looked for, hoped lor, and yet
dreaded night arrived at last. How its lead
en feet carried away the hours, and what a
strange heartfuil of emotions 1 bore up, as I
sat by my chamber window looking ont, as 1
thought, fer tic last time, upon the Lome of
u.y father. The moon was out iu all her splen
uor; she was kind to me, lighting up, with her
silver touehes, all the spots my eyes might wish
to rest upon before I went out into the world u
wanderer. The broad fields lay out smooth
ana shiuing before my grze; the fields in which
I Lad worked by my father's side siuee I was a
little boy—ah ! a dear kiud father he has been!
(At this juncture tny throat began to swell.)
1 turned away tiooi tha window, If I could
but see my mother once more, I exclaimed,
rubbing my eyes w.tli utv coat sleeve. 'No
ouc ever had a better mother than I have.'
I sat down iu a chair aud sobbed outright.
I looked arouud for something to take with uie
that my mother? hand had blessed with her
touch. There was a spinning wheel in the
room where 1 had slept; at the end of tie
spindle hang a woolen roll; with my knife 1
half cut and half tore it off, pressed it fervent
ly o my lips, and then placed it tenderly in
uiy vest pocket. I bad not tiuio to do mote;!
tho old clock in the kitchen warned me solemn-1
jiy that my appointed time had arrived, and
with a slow, sad, yet noiseless step 1 left the
house. Uuce out in the open air, my wonted
Jightfces* eP spirits returned. I consoled my
self With the thought that ia a few years i
j should return again, a strong, healthy, wealthy,
and influential tuau, an honor to my parents, a
blessing to my friends, and the Lush and of Ja
lis vc often wondered since, bow 1 suc
, ceeded iu getting away froiu house with my
hot so and cart without arousing any one. iut
as good lock would Siave it, 1 made a trium
phant exit from old place, and in a few lUO
u.enis was jogging fearlessly along towards the j
Lome of Janet. My only dread was of the ;
little sprite Fats; if after all she should betray
in, what a dreadful, direful, desperate mischief
it would be—what a wretched predicament af
fairs would be- iul I groaned aloud at the
thought, yet 1 put a bravo face ors the matter;
I said that if it was right we should go, if it
wasn't right, iu all btcbabiiity we should stay ;
at Lome: y-t right or not right, if that miser- i
j able litiio Fan did betray us, I'd spend all my
• days in avenging the wrong—that was certain,
\v:ts I ;u earnest? did I mean it? liut we
shall sco.
IIJW earnestly- and anxiously I fc :ized toward*
the chamber window of Janet, as, after fasten
ing my horse by the roadside, 1 walked cau
tiously up the lung lane that ied to the doc- j
toi's house. Oh, j-.y inexpressible! The w<i
vmg ot a white handkerchief iu the moonlight ,
told am thai everything was light, that iu a j
few moments I should clasp Janet to t my brea-t, •
mine forever' Ah, hew happy { was, so hap- '
f'V'> indeed, th i stood there ir; the moonlight, I

was silent about the Louse. Fait, wis surely
with u ; Fanny had been bnlied into service.—
As 1 stood there, 1 could see her light, lithe,
lit tic figure noiselessly to and fro by the win
now, ana how 1 biv-sscd her, from the very bot

'La, give it to fcer, Fan, den't plague your
sister, she's iu a hurry,' called a voice at that
moment from the closed blinds of the parlor
windows, which be-ionged to Done other tbau
Dr. Stoddard, 'give her the things, and tell the
boys to carry cut a hag of corn, a cheese, some
wheat, and some butter to the cart. June

Fur a moment we were petrified upon the

What should we tio —run, faint, die, evaporate j

huge mattresses fell at our t'eet from the wiu

quilts, table cloths, aud sundry other articles
necessary to the setting up of a respectable .
housekeeping establishment.
'.Mother, mother, dou't one of these new

Stoddard, from another part of the bouse.
'Yes, yes, aud a bolster, and a pair of nice
pillows, too. Carry 'cm right to tho front

j Your life patu may lead you aujid trials
which for a time seem eniirely to impede your
progress, aud shut out the very light of heaven |
from your anxious g^z".
Peuury may take the place of ease aud pleu- j
ty, \ "Ur luxurious home may be chauged to r a j
single, lowly room—the soft couch for the ,
stiatv pallet —the rich viands for the coarse
food of the poor. Summer friends may forsake ■
you, and the unpityiog world pass you with t
scarcely a word of compassion.
You may be forced to toil wearily, steadily j
to earn a livelihood ; you ray eucounter fraud
aud base avarice, which would extort the laft
j farthing, till you will nigh turu in digest from
your fellow beings.
Deaih may sever the dear ties that bind •
you to the earth, and leave you in fearful dark
' uess.
The nobie, manly boy, the sole hope of your
declining years, may be tatten suddenly from ;
! you while your spirit clings to him with a wild !
teuaeity which even the shadow of the tomb
can not wboly subdue.
But amidst all these sad trials and sorrows
do not come to the conclusion that nobody was
ever so deeply afflicted as you are, and aban
don every sweet anticipation of 'better days'
iu the unknown future.
Do not lose your faith in human excellence | i
| because your confidence has been betrayed, nor
! believe that friendship is oniy a delusion, and
i love a bright pbautom which glides away from
i your grasp.
i Do not think you are fated to be miserable
because you arc disappointed in your expects,
tions and baffled iu your pursuit. Do nut
| declare that God has forsaken you when your
way is hedged with thorus, or repine sinfully
when he calls your dear ones to the laud beyutid
the grave.
Keep a holy trust iu heaven through every
trial : bear adversity with fortitude, and look
upward iu hours of temptation aud suffering'.
\t hen your locks are white, your eyes dim, and
i your limis weary, when your steps falter on ]
I the verge of Death's gloomy vale, still retain
the freshness and buoyancy of spirit which will
shield you from the winter of the heart.

Mora, a journal generally extremely well in
fotOi-d, contains the fallowing significant tel- :
o c
, cgiatn :
"TLe greater p..rt of the army of occupa
tion of lioine has Loen recalled; only 2,000
men will remaiu in the Holy City. The mean- I
ltig of this withdrawal of the French garrison, :
at the present juncture, may he explained by a •
refereuoe to the history of the First Mapoleon's j
Italian campaigns, and the policy of the ;
nephew, as laid dowo in tho pamphlets that I
have recently appeared in France.
In these pamphlets the cessation of the tern- I
pora! power of the Pope is urged as an essential '
condition of the "regeqeratiou of Italy" id est, '
her annexation to France. But how accomplish
such a coup without arousing a fanatical or>-
poairit'i, on the part of the fc'rict Catholics—a
powerful elcmatit throughout Italy and France?
\ try simply, by a revolution in Koine, which j
will surety follow upon the departure of the •
French troops, and the capture of the Holy I
Father by the remaining two thousand, under j
the convenient and piausille pretext of pro- i
teeiiug him ogaiu-t the violence of an infuria

'•Have I come to this ?"
This is not an imaginary case. It o hap
pened that tLo writer of this was present when
several convicts arrived at one of our State
Penitentiaries. Among the Dumber was a
| young uian, about the age of twenty-four
j years, of good appearance and wtil dressed.
On going into the prison he involuntarily ex
i claimed—"Have I come to this !"
Alas 1 too late to avoid the punishment
; justly due him for his crimes. What instruc
; tii'ii sneii a scene and such language are calcu
lated to tford youth. It should teach them to
obey the first commandment with a promise to
avoid v in conii any ; and in a word, to remem
ber the Creator iu the days of their youth.—
And to a parent who possesses a deep interest
iu the welfare of a sou just entering upon the
scenes of active life, who knows the evtj pro
pensities of the heart, and the exposedness of
youth to the snares of the world, a scene like
this must 0.-easion a degree of anxious solici
tude, lest on some future day he should have
occasion to heir from that son the mdanchoiy
reflection,—"Have i come to this ?"
LIKE AFTER BUEIAL. — A singular occur
rence, says the Albany Knic kerb role* r of the
*27 th, was discovered in a vault attached to one
:of our burial grounds en Sunday last. It was
that of u female, who was deposited therein
for dead so;ne two months since, being found,
on r.pening the ccffia, to be la;, ing on her side,
with one hand under her head. Fram this it
was evident that the woman was alive when
placed there, and awakening from the trance
into which she had failen,, endeavored to ex
tricate herself from her eiitombutect. This,
of course, was au imposibility , the cover was
not only screwed dowu tightly, but the space
was too contracted to allow of even an effort.
It was evident, however, that the unfortunate
woman became convinced of the f*ct and con
cluded to die. She therefore took the easy
posture iu which she was found and breathed
her last. The thought that they had buried
her wiiiie yet alive, set her friends almost
crazed. The father and mother had just ar
rived from the old country last week, and were
brought to the vault to see their child. The
sceuo is related as heart rending.

PADDY OX AI SICA. —At negro celebration
lately, an Li.-hmau stood listening to a colored
speaker, expatiating upon government and free
dom: and as the orator came to a 'period' from
the highest and most poetical heights, the Irish
man said:
'Bedad, he speakes wdi for a nagur; didn't
he now?'
Somebody said, 'lie isn't a negro; be is culy
a half negro.'
Only a half nagur, is it? Well, if half a
| nagur e<iu talk in that style, I'm thinking a
I whole nagur might bate the prophet Jeremiah.

huge plank, just as the bell was ringing for the

evening over the bowl, went home a little, 'how
come you so.' Ue was fortunate enough to
find his batter half asleep. He went to bed and
after a few moments cogitation, he thought it
would be policy to turn over, lest his breath
should betray him, when Mrs. Jones opened her
eyes, and very ecoly said: 'Jones, you needn't
turn over you're drunk clear through.'
