We journey to a better land,
A country out of sight ;
A Father's hand supports our steps,
Ills presence gives us light. ~
The way is oft beset with snares,
And clouds loom overhead ;
But clinging closer to our Guide,
No evil do we dread.
But when the skies are bright and fair,
And pleasures crown our days,
We wander from our Heavenly Friend
Into forbidden ways.
19e gather pleasant fruits, that turn
To ashes in our grasp ;
We pluck the blooming flowers, and find
A serpent in our clasp.
"Our Father, lead us back again
Into thy paths of peace ;"
We cry, and lo 1 our Guido appears,
And bids our wanderings cease.
Ho takes us once mornby the - band
And wipes away our tears,
Forgives our wayward wanderings,.
And soothes our guilty fears.
His hand supports us all the way
Along the toilsome road,
Until, at last, our journey o'er,
We roach His blest abode.

six months before, as they were walk

rapidly along the path leading to the
dam. Thinking that something had
happened to the sluice-gates, they were
about to follow in order to assist, when
they saw that he began to cut away
the props that upheld the timbers.
Horrorstruck, they stopped. It was
too late. The dam gave away. Rush

The miller heard the snouts, and had
just time to save himself and his family;
shortly afterward the flood reached
the mill, and swept it away. A mer

Forrester bought an axe, a shovel and
a pick ou the evening previous to the
breaking of the dam. The axe was
found hidden among some bushes close
to the path, and was identified by the
merchant to be the same which Regi
nald bought of him. The miller swore
that Forrester bad several times been

miller further stated that at the, time
he discharged him, he (Forrester)sWpre

"And ho destroyed my property be.

Only one person believed FOrrester
to be innocent=-Amy Cluny,-the mil

It was twelve at noon, ust four years
after the conviction of Forrester, when
the door of the State's prison opened

The other letter came from NeW

the reports that spread over the

At last the news came to the ears of
the miller. With a muttered curse
upon his enemy, as he called Forrester,
he ascended the stairs leading to the

had erected in place of the one swept

cry,of terror escaped his lips as the
light shone upon the pale face of the
man whom he thought he had killed.
The candle dropped from his hand as
ho sank upon the floor. Meanwhile
Forrester was searching for the plank.
At last he found it. He tried to shove
it across the gulf but his strength fail

"Oh God! is-there no help hero to
assist me? Help; Help!" he cried,
still tugging at the plank.

Soon a dozen men with lanterns were
rushing towards Forrester.

the prostrate man:

miner, "I am sure of it."

her long black :tresses. '

staggered toward the plank. _
Amy 'stepped upon the window sill.
She had heard the' voice of him she
loved: Slowly she walked across the
plank until she was within a few .feet
of the men. She stopped. Again her
lover pronounced her name. She rec

The man does not get rich' so rapidly
as he'ivishes, or seine- other pursuit

course, equally unsuccessful trial:- So
he goes on, verifying the old proverb,
"A rolling stone gathers no moss."
