IT L. r. WILLI.
Slit dwelt where long the wiutry slinwers
fluid undisputed wiy,
Where frowning April drivea the Hovers
Far down the lane of May.
A limple, rustic child of eong,
Reared in a chilling tone,
The idol of a household throng
The cheriabed one of home.
None sang her praise, or heard her fame
Beyond her Lath a town ;
6t bore no fancy-woven name,
Twas limple Mary Brown.
Ilereyei were not a shining black,
Nor yet a heavenly blue,
tVy it b haiel,or alack !
Some lesi poetio hue ;
Indeed I mind me, long ago,
One pleasant summer diy
A passing stranger caught their glow,
I think be called them gray.
Tet when with earnestnesi they burned
Till ether eyea grew dim; .
Their outward tint was ne'er discerned
The spell was from within.
A novelist, with fancy's pen
Would scarcely atrive to trace
Fran her a fairy heroine
Of machlets mein, and grace,
A model for the painter's skill,
Or for the aculptor'e art
Her form might not be called) yet still
It bore a gentle heart ;
The while it fondly treasured long
Love's lightest whispered tone, .
In other hearts she Bought no wrong
She knew none in her own.
Though never skilled in fnshion'a school,
To sweep the trembling keys,
Or strike the harp by studied rulo,
A listening throng to please ;
Yst still when anguish rent the soul,
And fever racked the brain,
Her lingers knew that skillful touch
Which soothed the brow of pain
And widow thanks, and orphan tears
Had owned her tender care,
While little children gathered near
tier earnest love to share.
I might forget the queenly dame
Of high and courtly birth,
Descending from an ancient name
Among tbe sons of earth ;
I scarce recall the dusting eyca
. Of her, the village belle,
Who caused so many rural slgbi
From rustic hearts to swell ;
Yet never can I cease to ewn
While future yean shall roll,
Thy pacing beauty, Miry Brown
The beauty of the soul.

the hand of A. M-
who began, in
jest, an apparently minute scrutiny of the
make and quality of the articles. An ex
pression, however, of deep thoughtfuliiess
soon settled upon Ins 1 ice. He turned the
buttons over and over, and examined them
closely in overy part. Thev were old-fash
ioned and massive, with two letters en
graved upon each of the four faces. The
longer A. M looked at them, Ihe
more deeply absorbed and agitated he bo
came. Though eminently secretive and

with difficulty, suppress the powerful emo
tion whioli began to communicate a nerv
ous '.renier to his lips and hands. The
pallor almost of death overspread his coun
tenance, and lie stood motionless as mar
ble, absorbed in a prolonged inspection of
lien witnessed, with ill-concealed do
light, the agitation of his patron, at tri Jil
ting it to the discovery which he had now
made of the undoubted metallic purity of
the buttons, and the regret which he must
experience at the injustice done both them
and the owner, by the cruel declaration
that they were mere j ew ter geiv-gaws.
Elaled with his triumph, ho exclaimed,
