From lb° Journal of Con4motjan
In one of the pleasant rides we have had a
bout Saratoga, we found one day; a! cottage,
whose appearance, tinder a noble, qlm, and by
the side of altrook whose prattling was for
ever musical, led me instantly to suppose it
was Iworth visiting; more especially!as it was
veryLold, and had.ahout it the lookof the,llth
century. I took a couple of hours the other
day to visit it, and having made tip my mind
that it had a story connected with , it, I goes
tinned the old man whom I found in it so close
ly, that I at !Mgt!) gathered of the life
of man, that I thonglit worth repeating to the
Volcric aforesaid, and which may be worth
writilig here. •
The widow Johnson occupied that cottage
sixty-five years ago, and with her livbd a son,
a noble boy of fifteen, Who was the pride pf
the country around. None was so beloved as
he, except his adopted sister, Kate Harden.
She was indeed a 'fairy. Her golden hair
seemed to be akin to the winds on which cit
floated so freely, and her eyes had won their
deep hue from the sky into which she was so
often gazing. "Why gazed she thusl"
She had a 4nother beyond the blue above her.
A mother who, tlying,diad left her to the care
of Mrs. Johnson, and until her voice failed,
charged her to edt• her in heaven! Nay,
after she had cea l ed to speak, she hb l d her
daughter to her breast with heri ef t arm, an d
Pointing up with her thin, white finger, smiled'
'a' h/ily smile, and !sought her home. 4lrs:
Johnson was not rieit in this drorhts gooda.
The few acres which she rented oftorded a
mere subsistence,itt'd ICate and Edwin assisted
her in her labors: It was . not strange that
these two Children, when the one was 'sitteen

The morning of her departtire, came. with
its sweet spring flowers, and atmosphere la

seethed to be strangely solemn. .The sun
Steered curiously in at the lattice, 'and fell
across the fjot the bed on which the slender
form of the ding i girl lay. Iler bird sank
doubtfully in ' s cage, and the very cat by the
earth looked ; up and seemed to feel that' there
was something sad going on. , ;
,The moment of agony at length came. She
had parted with all but him, and now she held
Itislitind between her two, and smiled on his
face, (as \pale as here,) omit spiike in a low,
sweet ltone of all the past and the foture. l —'
" You will Miss me when yoit go after the

lonely will it,Mat ? And when you sit down
here by the hearth with mother, and my chair
is empty—you'll miss me brother. You'll sit
at the table with her, and have no one at the
side of it;" and her voice,,bruken andlaint its
it was, fell to a lower tone, as she continued
"go, in the twilight sometimes, Ned, and si
down under the tree by the spring, on the re
seat, come there if I can." " • '
A' moment pissed in silence as ho .leaned
over toward her,—then suddenly throwing her' ,
arms around his' neck, she said, "f love you,
love you, love you, brother No];" and draw
ing.his head 'down, pressed her,lips to his, in
the !alit long kiss of life, and laying his cheek
close against hers, smiled a smile of serene
and joyful hope, and—Kate was 'an angel !
Iskhat all our story? did you ask. • lot by
a considerable, 'my dear friend. There is
more love to come yet. "What! another love
affair after his promised trist with Kate on
the green bank brander by the'spring?" Yes;
another; but not such an one as'you imagine.
Don't you suppose at man can love, any thing
else but a woman a year or two his junior?—
Remember that Elward has a•motker, and
now be patient and I'll tell what beciime of her.
•, Mrs. Johnson timl Ned i had a lonely life. af
ter they had - taid their darling Kato in the
graveyard over by the church at Milton; and
as misfortunes are said to come in crowds, sot
in their case they were not exempt. That
very'yMir the crops failed, the cow died, and a
dozen other troubles followed; and the result
was that Mrs. J. gave up the cottage and ac
cepted the offer of a home with.a kind neigh

From the Nov Orleans Delta
It was twenty years ago yesterday! The
golden gleams of the royal sun fell with rich
lustre on the yellow bosom of the Mississippi;
There were then not so many plantations in
the vicinity of New Qrleans, and where now
waves the long green leaves of the sugar-cane,
was then an almost uncultivated waste. The
banks of the river teemed with cottonwood
trees, and the long gray moss swung lazily in
the soft breeze of autumn. The "Dirch-
Woed" a noble ship from Amsterdam, slowly
made tier way up the river. She had on board
some forty or fifty immigrants. The old Ger
mans, in their/ long-tailed coats, decorated
itlynany g! brass buttons, smoked, their
ipe4 co M plucehtly, and every nut aml then
grunted, "p.m ! raw!" in I assent 'orN:rerly to

hoard that vessel who did not have 'a thousand
thoughts melted into one as the ship reached,
the levee. One thought, and his meniory .
travelled like lightning, of the little cottage
on the banks of theßhine, around whOse porch
the honey-suckle grew and the bees hummed
,—sillgiti,g, as it were, an insect sung of praiSe
to Heaven for its bounty. Th en across the
mirror of the heart of the immigrants there
came the Shadow of a sweet, paW face; with
eyes moist with tears, and lips as soft and
crimsom as the leave's' of the mrs-rose.—
Dint stolid Switzer—he smoked his pipe in
lilence—no , one saw his tears, for they were
Wept inwardly, and the eyes of his soul look
ekt upon the green Murders of his own blue
Rhine, and the sweet face of the pale, tearful
girl he left behind him. Standing on thd
quarterdeck, there was a woman who seemed
to be almost lost in thought. She was poor
an frier Mess, and had come to the land of lib 7,
ert to eels a long lost brother. Ten years
of rwa s that poor Dutch maiden was the
wi i a member of Congress.
•I ,
Now let's to • the ste,erage cabin of the
"Dirch-:%Voed." In a miserable cot there lay
a man who was dying. His wife stcod by
him, and ever and anon bathe. his temples
with vinegar, and in her own language whis
pered to him some words of comfort. At the ,
fout•of the bed of the dying man a little girl,
with bright blue eyes and flaxen hair, was
playing with an apple that had been given to
her by one of the cabin passengers. [Meow
scious of the situation of her father, she toyed
with her little- present, and every now and
then a slight laugh would escape her lips.—
Just as the vessel touched the whlirf of the
First Municipality, the wife of the dying man
sat down by him. She thought that he had
sunk into a sweet slumber—that he would re
cover, and' that in the "new
,1 country" she
would have his stalwart arlh and able jUdg—
ment to protect her and the little child, the
oll;ipring- of their. love: His face was very
pale, and she thought for a element that the
dilation of his nostrils had ceased. Her heart
thrillilied wildlfr in tier boson), and going to a
little wooden Bhest; she took out a biloken bit
of looking glass. Placing it before his month,
for he was very still, she endeavored to 'find

out if he-kt ‘ ill breathed. There was no mois
ture on the glass! There was a slight tremor
of the heart of the dead man, that, like a bird,
unwilling to leave its nest, gently heave d his
snow-white bosom, and then all was at rest!
The widowed woman clasped herhands be
fore her eyes, and thought, but dared not look
upon her poor little daughter, - who still sat
playing on the bed where her father died.—
It was all gene! The, home that,she had left
—the friends that sh; had seParated, from—
the vision of the blue wav{Os fringed with sil
ver laces that she had crossed over—:he hopes
of wealth and happiness in the land of Liber
ty—the pleasant thought of sending on, %%hen,
they had got rich, for her own aged mother
and the gray-haired lather of her husband!--L I
hler husband! She wildly withdrew the thin,
white fingers that werylasped over hereyes
and saw the placiffeatures of her husband
who was cold in death; and het daughter still
playing with her little apple! The tides of
her heart rose with such velocity that she fell
upon the planki rig, - and when sonic of her'com
panions picked her up they saw that the blood'
was gurgling Rom her mouth, that her fin
gers were clinched and thfit her Wan bosom
heaved with tumult.
A few moments more, and her pulse ceased
to qtiiver, and het glazed eyes looked upwards
as if to God! She was dead—he was dead,
w and -still the little, flaxen-headed, blue-eyed'
girl sat! smiling by those who were her parents.
There were two inquests that day, and two
rough coffins conveyed the dead wife and hus
band to the grave! The little orphan thought
it a gay thing to take them away, for some
one had told her that they. were asleep, and
then she laughed and clasped her tiny hands.
In a little however, she .commonced
crying for her:pother, and little tears as bright
as pearls trickled down her pure cheeks. A
bread-sliouldred man, at the time that he was
