The night was dark and fearful,
The blast swept wailing by ;
A watcher, pale and tearful,
I.ook'd forth with anxious eye;
How wistfully she gazeth—
N'o gleam of morn is there—
Her eves to heaven she raiscth
lii agony of prayer.
Within that dwelling lonely,
Where want and darkness reign,
A precious child—her only—
Lay moaning in iti pain ;
And death alone can free him—
-Bhe feels that this must be—
But, O ! for morn to sec him
Smile once again on me.
A thousand lights are glancing
In yonder mansion fair,
And merry feet are dancing—
They heed not mourning there.
O, young and joyous creatures !
line lamp from out your store
Would give that poor boy's features
To his mother's gaze once more.
The morning sun wv shining;
fc>iie heeded not lis ray—
Beside her boy reclining,
The pale, dead mother lay.
A smile her lips was wreathing—
A smile of hope and love,
A- luougli she sn!i were breathing,

Having signified our several desires t >

' At the age of eighteen, I light ' I

and an angry wind began to howl and

the lightning revealed the dung'r of our
road. We were ori ♦ lie edge of t frightful

the sigtil made me solicitous for the safety
of my fair companion. I tiiought ol the

track of our coach wheels —a liny hillct ol

lady, as I withdrew my head from the

sharp, pic ten g sere.on of mortal terror, and
I had hut time to cl.;*p I. misa firmly with

' 1 can distinctly recollect preserving
consciousness for a few seconds of time,
how rapidly my breath was being exhaust
ed, hut of that ttemendous descent I soon
Install further individual knowledge by a
concussion so violent that 1 was instantly
deprived of sense and motion.'
The traveller paused. His features
worked for a minute or two as they did
when we were on the mountain ; he pressed
bis hand across his fort-head as if in pain,
and then resumed his interesting story.
• On a low couch, m an humble room of
a small country house, I next opened my
eo'S in this world < f light and shade,
and j"V and sorrow, of mirth and inadne*s.
Gentle hands soothed my pillow, gentle
feet glided across my chamber, and a gen
tle voice hushed for a time all my ques
timings. 1 was kindiy tended by a girl
about fifteen, who refused lor several days
to hold anv discourse wuh in •. At length
one morning, finding myself sufficient y
recovered to sit up, I insisted on learning
the result of the accident.
' Y<>u were discovered,' said she sitting
on a ledge of rock, amidst the branches of
a shattered tree clinging to a part of the
roof of your broken coach with one hand,
and to the insensible form of a lady with
the other.'
' And the lady !' I gasped, scanning the
girls lace with an earnestness that caused
her to draw hack and blush.
'She was saved, sir, bv the same means
that saver! you the friendly tree.'
•And her father and brother?' 1 impa
tiently demanded.
'Were both crushed to pieces at the bot
tom of the precipice, a great way below
the nlaca where toy father and uncle Joe
got you and the lady. We buried their
bodies m one grave, clo-e bv the clover
patch down m our meadow ground.
'Boor Louisa! poor orphan ? God pi'.y
you V i mintered, 111 broken tones ; utter
ly unconscious that 1 had a listener.
4 Gud pity her, indeed, sir,' said the
young gul, with a gush of heartfelt svm
pathy. 4 Would you like to seo her V she
4 Take nie lo her,' 1 repliid.
4 1 fount! the orphan bathed in tears, by
the grave of her buried kindred. She re
ceived me with soriowful sweetness of man
ner. I will not detain your attention by
d-tailing the efforts 1 made to win iter
from li"r grief; 'out briefly acquaint you,
that I at last succeeded in inducing her to
leave her forlorn home in the sunny south,
and that twelve months afier the dreadful
occurrence which ! have reia el, we stood
at the altar together as man and wife.
tSne still lives to bless my love wiib her
smiles, ami my children with her good
precepts; but on the anniversary of that
lerribie night, she secludes heiseifm her
room, and dt votes the hour of darkness in
solitary prayer. 4 As f r me,' added the
iravelif-r. v.liile a faint flu-h tinged his no
ble brow at die avowal, 4 as for me. thaiac
eident has reduced me to tbe condition o
a physical coward at die siglit of a niouti
tarn precipice.'
'But I tie driver,' urged our lady pa'sen
ger, who bad attended the recitai of tht
whole wub much attention 4 what becsmt
of the driver ? or did you ever learn tht
reason < f his deserting his po?i?'
'His body was found on the road, with
in a f"w steps of the spot where the coach
went over. He had been struck dead by
the san e flash of lightning that blinded the
restive finises.'
The traveller here fell into a musing at
titude, as ii all further allusion to the subject
would he unpleasant to him. Shortly af
ter tins, we reached the railroad station,
were I parted from trie nervous gentleman
with feelings of profound esteem.
"The Lower Classes."
The lower classes— who are ihey ? The
toiling nulli ns, the laboring man and wo
man, the farmer, the mechanic, the ariizan,
the inventor, the producer ? No, far from
it 1 These are Nature's nobility—God's
favorites the salt of the earth. No mat
ter whether they are high or low in sta
tion, rich or poor in pel', conspicuous or
humble in position, they aie surely the
•'upper circles" in tbe order of na'ure,
whatever 'he fictitious distinctions of soci
otv, fashionable or unfashionable, decree.
It is not low —it is the duty, privilege and
pleasure, of the great man and the whole
sou!' i woman, to earn what they possesr,
to work th ir own way through life, to be
the :ncollect of 1 hoi: own f. 1 tunes. Some
may rank ih* classes we have alluded to
as only rthtively low, ar.d in fact the mid
dling classes. We insist they are abso
lutely the very highest, ll there is a
class of human beings on earth who may
he propetly denominated low, it is those
alio - pond with ut earning, who consume
without producing, who dissipate on the
earnings of their fathers or relatives, with
out doing anything in aid of themselves.
There is a certain magic or charm in
company, for it will assimilate and make
vou like to them by much conversation
with them. If they be good company, it
is a gre-.'i means to make you good, or
confirm you in goodness; but if they be
bid, it is twenty to one hut they will cor
rupt or infect vou. Therefore, be wary
and sly in choosing and enterta ning, or
frequenting any company or companions ;
he not too hasty in committing yourself
to them ; stand off a while till you have in
quired t f some (that you know by experi
ence to be faithful) what they are ; observe
what company they keep : be not 100 has
te to gain acquaintance, hut stand off and
keep a distance yet a while, till you have
observed and learned touching them. .Men
or women that are greedy of acquaintance,
01 hasty in i', are often snared in ill com
pany before they are aware, and entangled
so that they cannot easily get loose from it
when they would.
Chide a man for being angry when he is
angry, what will you get by it, save some
of the foain of his overflowing rage cast
upon you ? As God is said to have co ne
down in the cool of the day to reprove
Adam, so iikewise we should come in the
cool season of a man's passions, when all
is quiet and temperate wi hin, for then there
is the greatest probability of rightly iiitlu
er.cing him.
S >me men who know that they are
great, are so very haughty withal and in
sufferable, thai itiei r acquaintances discover
their greatness only by the tax of humility
which they are obliged to pay, as the pnee
of their trieiidship. Such characters are
as tiresome and disgusting in the journey
of life, as rugged roads are to the weary
traveller, which ho discovers to be turn
pikes only by the toll.
If \ou don't love flowers yourself, don't
quarrel with those who do. It is a defect
in your nature which \ou ought to be sot
r y !ur, rather than ahti.se tho-e who arc
riuirti i!'.ed. ()i what pos-ohF- f/se is the
rainbow, we should like to know ! And
vet a wiser Being than you did nut think
j the world complete without it.
rather singular ease of forgery has just or
i curred in New Orleans. A young French
girl, who had recently arrived with her
mother and sister fr>>ni Paris, was reported
to have a huge amount of gold on depos
it!? with a city banker. Site was fair and
of course had many admirers, among
them a verdant young merchant, whom she
married.—On the day following the mar
riage the happy bride groom deposited
with a banker a note for §IO,OOO, signed
by one of the wealthiest merchants in the
; city. This note, which he had received
from his voting and beautiful bride, he dp
snred to have collected, and a draft for the
amount remitted t< him at New York for
which destination the happy couple took
their departure the same evening. The
note was not discovered 10 be a forgery un
til several days after they had sailed for
j the North. The credulous husband with
his artful spouse are now enjoying their
i honey moor, trip at the North, but the
news of the affair which must come, when
the money does not, will sotely interrupt
their matrimonial bliss.
