With tottering steps he fecblv trod,

Whero such flno prospects cheer tho sight,
To manhood, wealth and glory.
Ho not deceived, Old Ago replied,
In vain win bo thy tolling ;
I long have chas'd thoso distant Joys
Oft grasp'd them-but the nectlng toys
Wero backward still recoiling,
I wnnder'd on through many n scene,
l'ass'd grotto's groves and bowers j
Somo b'lssful object still In view,
I gnthcr'd gemsot brightest hue
And pluck'd tho fairest flowers :
Hut nh I thoso nowcrs all faded soon
And left them In despair j
And riches gems were scircely mine,
llefore they all began to shine,
And vanish 'J Into nlr.
Youth rals'd liU eyes nnl look'd ahead,
Tho prospect still was bright
I must go on prevent mo not,
For yonder Is a sunny spot,
Which promises delight.
Youth said no more, but onward went,
His favorlto courso to keep i
And hopo still sparkling from his eyes,
Towards yon sunny spot he lllcs,
And struggles up tho bteep.

On ono of tho darkest and stormiest
nights of the recent unusual winter, tho
express on ono of the leading New
York railroads was moving westward
from Albany. The engines headlight
throw a strong reflection in ndvaticc,
but tho storm was so blinding it was
almost impossiblo to distinguish any
thing oven at a short distance Under
such ciroumBlances instinct necessarily
tnkes tho place of sight. All seemed
to bo going well, when in an instant,
tho engineer reversed his engine, ap
plied tho air brakes, and came to a full
stop. Why ho did so he could not tell
any more than any of us can account
for tho dread of coming disaster and
death, nnd to the wondering inquiry of
the fireman he simply said j "I feel
that something's wroog." Seizing a
lantern ho swung himself down from
the cab and went forward to investi
gate. Everything appeared lo bo right,
and ho was about to return to bis
engine when ids cyo caught eight of a
pcouliar appearance nt the joint of the
rail next to him. Brushing the accu
mulated snow away, ho looked n mora
ont, and then uttered an exclamation
of horror. Tho rails on both sides had
been unspiked and would havo turned
over tho instant tho engine touched
them. What inspired this attempt at
train-wrecking is unknown, but it was
presumed the confederates of somo
prisoners who were on tho train hoped,
in the confusion of nn accident, to
deliver their friends.
