OLD FRIENDS TOGETHER.
BY CHARI.ES SIVAIV, ESQ.
Oh, time is sweet when roses meet,
With spring's sweet breath around them;
And sweet the cost, when hearts are lost,
If those we love have found them:
And sweet the mind that still can lino
A star in darkest weather ;
Hut naught can be so sweet to see
As old friends meet together.
Those days of old, when youth was bold.
And time stole wings to speed it,
And youth ne'er knew how last time flew,
.Or knowing, did not heed it!
Though gray each brow that meets us now,
For age brings wiut'ry weather,
Yet naught can be so sweet to see
As those old friends together !
The few long known, whom years have shown
With hearts that friendship blesses ;
A hand to cheer, perchance a tear,
To soothe a friend's distresses ;
Wiio heip'd and tried, still side by side,
A friend to face hard weather;
Oh, thus may we yet joy to see
And meet old friends together !

BY ELLEN ASIITON.
• 1 heard yesterday that you were enga
£retl to Eveline Yalliere, and to-day 1 hear
that you ure to marry Sophy Greene.—
Which re|ort is true?' said Edgar Thom
as to his friend Harry Colbert, and taking
his cigar from his mouth, lie suffered the
?moke to curl gracefully to the ceiling,
gazing meantime on the lace of his friend.
4 The fact is,' said Hairy, throwing him
self back in his chair, 'l'm engaged to
neither,' and then he paused.
4 But you are very attentive to Sophy,
and those who go to Miss Yalliere's set,
say you are devoted to her,' and again the
speaker's eye was fixed inquiringly on
Harry, who looked down, momentarily
' Well, the truth is,' said he, looking up,
lam a littlo in love with both the ladies,
so 1 can't make up my mind to marry
either, lest I should lose the other. I wish
the good qualities of both were combined
;.i one ; then I should soon decide. .Miss
Valltero is amiable, pretty and rich, and
- j far is just what 1 want; but she has 110
wit, 3nd .would never make 3 wife to make
:.J proud of abroad. Sophy is poor, and
■ I'.hout Eveline's fine figure, though, per
i.aj-, with a prettier, certainly with a more
intellectual looking face. Then she lias a
fine wit, and is decidedly n giil of talent.
—\V,th a little tact she might be made a
perfectly laminating creature. I don't say
which lias the most womanly heart—l sup
pose cither could love deeply enough,' and
fere the speaker adjusted his collar.—
'When I am with Sophy 1 am in love with ;
her, hut when 1 see Eveline, and think of
•er fortune, I cannot resist paying her at
' ution. I had gone pretty fur with Eveline
re 1 met Miss Greene ; but since then
1 Ave been more careful, and 1 confess am I
ften puzzled how to decide. If Eveline :
h-1 ■* Sophy's intellect, or Sophy had Eve- ;
"tje'a fottune, I should propose to-morrow, 1
but the fates have ordered it otherwise,
and <0 —poor dog that 1 am —I must wait
tveiils, and trust to destiny.'
' ihd you ever commit yourself to Miss ;
' aliiere V asked his companion, after a J
' Not exactly,* answered Harry, slowly j
.i.d doubtfully; 4 to be sure I did, at one
me, pay her considerable attention, hut j
ion, you know, a pretty girl is used to j
nch things, and, if she has sense, never j
..inks you serious unless you make love in
vords.' Now 1 never did that exactly, 1
tad m that I am lucky, though 1 do con
* to sundry sentimental walks, and sly j
vntions when the old folks were away j
-,'.ti understand, just enough to keep her ;
King of nio sufficiently to ensure sue- j
-< if I should at any time make up my

1 ugiit to hack out, and I am not half
lUi-ntive as I once was: for, the fact is
- I met Sophy Greene I have fell that

ILrrv T*<ll>ert had frankly explained the ,
1 v in which fie had involved him
fit he had not told the whole truth : ;
atb ntion to both girls had been as-
J -i- .. i devoted, and of such .1 charac*

'a different sects, 111 opposite sections j

*bil• 1 11 val and thus for several 1
Asyis iPwwuM&mmm &iswzigi i i<s)WsS:> i?£.o
] months, had carried on his deception un
detected. He had already wooed and won
j Eveline Valliere, though he had never
i told his love in words, before lie met So
j [>hy Greene ; from that hour his heart had
1 been divided, and ilio conflict in iiis breast
had raged with increasing force daily.—
Interest, and perhaps some little remain
; ing conscience, urged him to marry Eve
; line : while, if lie had consulted only his
feelings, he would have wedded Sophy.
1 4 But,' said his friend, after un embar
: raising silence of some minutes, 4 do you
. not think sometimes that you may have
won tho affections of both ? *
4 I never proposed to either,' replied
i Harry, staring at his companion.
4 But does a lady never place her affec-
I lions on a gentleman until he proposes in
form ? Is there no such a thing as winning
; a lady by looks and tone, which though not
J explicit in one sense, are susceptible of
j but a single definition ?' asked his friend
' Oil ! perhaps some girls do lose their
hearts thus, but it's only when they know
nothing of the world. Gentlemen will be
attentive to tho ladies, and so and so—'
4 And so sometimes a heart will bo bro
ken by the criminal coquetry of our sex,'
indignantly interrupted the other. There
was a pause, during which Ilarty regard
ed his friend with surprise. At length he
1 spoke :
• Why, really, you look at the subject
too warmly ; but culm your fears ; neither
Sophy nor .Miss Valliere will break their
hearts for me, thank heaven! It cither is
' at all smitten,' and he complacently puffed
! the smoke slowly from his mouth ; 4 she
would never be the worse of it, even if I
; shouldn't marry her—a mere preference,
nothing more, believe mo !'
4 Well, 1 hope so,' said his companion,
and here the conversation ceased
Days and weeks passed, and still Harry
was torn by conflicting emotions, 0110 while
i inclining towards the heiress, and another
i while yielding to the fascinations of her ri
val. Often during this period his con
; science reproached hiin for his conduct to
Eveline, and lie resolved to forget Sophy ;
but again ho yielded to the temptation, and
' neglected his first love. Ho could no lon
-1 ger conceal from himself that Miss \ ai
| iiere loved him, since her every look and
action when in his presence, and her de
; spondencv fit his abscencc and neglect,
revealed it. His heart smote him, when
| he thought this was his work ; but he ask
; ed himself, ought he to wed one whom he
did not love. Should he sacrifice happi.
ness with Sophy, who had nn intellect to
sympathise with him, for indifferetico with
Eveline ? He did not remember, when iic
thus reasoned with himself, that lie Had, at
one time, thought Miss Valliere better fit
ted for a wife, by her gentleness and un- !
reserved devotion, than one of a more bril- i
liant but less amiable character. He for- 1
got, too, that her affection had been yield- ,
ed slowly, and only in return for the most .
ceaseless attention. But, like too many of j
his sex, he tired of an object when w on.
But the struggle ot length was terminc
ted, and, with the fickleness which char
acterized his conduct, terminated in favor
of the newer object of his love. lie re
solved to cease visiting Eveline, and devote
himself wholly to Miss Greene. His;
visits accordingly increased 111 frequency
at her house ; and lie soon became satis
fied that her attentions to him were more
marked than those she bestowed on other
young men. Thus encouraged he did not
hesitate to declare himself one evening
when a favorable opportunity presented. j
Sophy listened to his ardent protestation
with >1 burning check and a beating bosom,
but when he ceased, she slowly raised lit i
eyes from the ground, and said,
4 Before 1 can consent to become your j
wife, will you answer me one question V
and fixing her eyes scarcliingly on his face,
though her cheek crimsoned deeper as she
did it, 4 do you know Eveline \ ulliere V
Had a spectre started up belor" him,
Harry would not have looked more aghast. ;
What could she mean ? Had she heard
of his attentions to and his desertion >l M iss
Valliere? Did she resent the lallei?—or
had she merely learned the former, and
wished to solve her doubts before answer
ing ? This last idea was the most flatter
ing, and therefore the one adopted, lie
smiled as ho replied,
4 Yes! I once knew a lady of that
4 Once knew hor,' said Sophy, with
marked emphasis, 'and do you know her
no longer ?'
4 I cati scarcely say 1 uo, saul Hurry,
iiis embarrassment returning at the decided
manner of his qucstiuuor, 'but she has long
forgotten me, and 1 have ceased visiting
Iter.' . ,
4 There needed only this baseness,
said Sophy, rising, with flashing eyes, the
whole expression of her face changing to
indignant scorn, to make you as contempt
ible in ny eyes as you were before crim
inal. Know false, and fickle man, that
have heard the whole historoy of your ac
nuaintaoce with Miss Valliere how, by
slow and winning attention, you possessed
yourself of her heart—how, when you met
another, who for the time, pleased your
selfish nature better, you became attentive
tj tins new acquaintance—and how, not
withstanding you knew the lovo Mus > al-
1 liere bore for you, you at length left her to
pine in despondency, until her life is now
| despaired of by her friends. And yet you
j come here, and dare to insult ma with an
offer of your love'—she spoke this word with
! bitter scorn — 4 you! the almost murderer ol
j one woman, and the wronger thereby of
! our whole sex. Ay ! mere—you hesitated
long, because, forsooth, I was too poor,
| as if love, that holy sentiment, of which
j such wretches as you can know nothing,
was to be profaned by base thoughts of
1 lucre. 1 tell you, Harry Colbert, I have
: known all this for weeks, and have waited
j patiently for this hour, stooping to a de
ception which I despise, that I might re
venge my sex at last. You seek a wo
man's love! why you know no more of
that pure sentiment that the meanest hind
that crouches at the master's whip. A
true woman scorns the hand of a man like
you, who, for the gratification of a petty
vanity, or of his own selfishness, would de
sert a heart that he had won. The time
was when I might have loved you, but it
was when I thought your heart noble. I
I now see its basemss, duplicity and httle
-1 ness, and bad as you are. I cannot hate you
from very scorn. Go! and go knowing
j this, that a woman can avenge her se.v even
| at the cost of so pretty a lover as yourself.'
The withering contempt with which
these words were spoken was the last drop
|in tho cup of the lover's shame. While
Sophy continued speaking he had stood
abashed before her, not daring to lift his
eyes but once to her face and then the in
dignant Hash of her eyes, and the bitter
j mockery on her lip, were no temptation to
' renew the experiment. And when she
1 ceased, he rose and almost rushed from
the room, too utterly confounded to reply
though boiling with race and shame. He
reached his Koom in a tempest of emotions
indescribable. But his passion was too
high to allow him to seo the justice of his
4 Curse the girls !' was his first exclama
tion, 4 slie raved like a Bylhoness—but
J why did 1 not retort scorn for scorn ?
To refuse me when she is not worth a
cent, and all because of Eveline,' and he
breathed a malediction on her as the cause
of his discomfiture, and with bitter excla
mations strode to and fro in his room.
Gradually, however, his passion calmed
itself, and a desire for revenge possessed
his mind. But how should ho bo reveng
ed ? Should he woo and win some other
lady at once, or go back to Miss Valliere
and secure her. After pondering long, he
determined on the latter course.
4 Yes!' he siitl, 'it 1 marry Eveline, to
whom it is known I have been attentive,
this termagant will never dare to tell of my
proposal, for we had no witnesses, and no
one will believe her, if it should be announ
ced soon, say to-morrow or next day at
farthest, that I am engaged to the heiress.
She loves me no doubt—there this vixen
was right and will be glad to ac
cept me. 1 will despatch a note at once.—
A little dissimulation to conceal the cause
of my neglect, a little penitence adroitly
thrown in, and a little ardor, will win a
favorable answer, or I know nothing of
the trusting nature of Eveline Valliere.'
The proposal was written and sent; but
the next day, und the whole week, passed
without an answer. Harry began to re
pent of his precipitance, and wish that iie
had never seen cither Eveline or Sophy.—
But at length came the long looked for re
ply. Ho opened it with renewed hope?,
which, however, were crushed on its peru
sal. The answer was short and cold, and
contained a refus?.l couched in terms which
(orbade a second attempt. 1 M is* \ alliere,'
the note ended with saying, 'declined all
further acquaintance with Mr. Colbert.'
Stung to the quick, the rejected lover
vented his rage cn both the women he had
abused, and determined yet to avenge hint
sell by a speedy marriage. But he soon
fiiuiid that his conduct was known in so
ciety, though not from any thing which j
Eveline or Sophy sard, but from reports j
originating probably with their relatives, ,
and gained strength from what had been j
observed of Harry's conduct. At length!
the tide of scorn and rebuke became so ,
strong that he left the city and removed 1
te another section of the country.
Harry never knew the strugglo in Ev
eline's heart, nor the noble firmness with
which she conquered it. His letter reach
ed her on a sick bed, where she had been i
laid by his perfidy, but tho' her weak
hcait pleaded for him, her convictions of
what was right prevailed, and she rejected
him, because she felt that she could never
find happiness with one so base, fickle and
selfish. Both she and Sophy Greene liv
ed to love truly and worthily, and the
friendship began by their mutual disap
pointment, was cemented by intimacy, and
endured through long and happy lives.
As for Harry, lie carried with him his
own punishment. I'rovideuce lurely in
teiferos in the affairs of ordinary life, ,
except by enslaving us with oyr evil liab- j
its, and thus making us work on ourselves
our own retribution. A iiese habits Har
ry carried with him, nor could lie shake J
them off. His character soon became as
well known in his new residence as in
the city he had left. At length, however, ,
he married, but, as wedded without lovo, .
he lived without happiness. Well were (
las victims avenged 011 the T RIFLEH.

How Brief is Life.
The morning sun of life may gild a
i horizon uncfeuded by a single care or un
-1 rufllod by the prospect of reverses in our
common journey ; Nature may bloom in all
her heaveu-born beauty, and her glittering
romanco and brightest realities add ze6t
and loveliness to the new born life ; the be
neficent hand of an all-wise Providence
may seem to stiow the pathway With life's
best off ring to tho sojourner ; but ajl mav
. fade or vanish in an hour, and leave but a
| lingering recollection with those who sur
vive, that life's brightest hopes are often
rested with those who fall the earliest be
neath the fatal stroke of our common de
stroyer. So is life. It blooms and with
ers in a day—in a single hour its fondest
anticipations aro frustrated by the hand of
i llim who holds our destinies subject to
! his will.
How brief is life ! is the involuntary
| lamentation of doating parents as a lovely
! child, in whom is concentrated all that af
fection can lavish or indulgence bestow,
I yields its spotless spirit to the God that
' gave it. The hopes and labors of that
brief life time are buried in the grave, and
the clay tenement, in which moved that
typo of Heaven, is consigned to the dust
by the irrevocable mandate of its giver.—
So is life; a work but half begun—a ten
der fragile flower, watered by tears and
! nourished by incessant care, blooms but a
day to wither in un hour.
How brief is life ! is the exclamation of
scarcely matured manhood, when all the
high hopes of future euccessand usefulness
or perndventure f3ino, are frustrated by the
hand of death. Scarcely has childhood
made way for the years of maturity ;
scarcely has life began to yield what the
i toil and study of earlier days promised,
1 until it s palsied by disease and hurried
; off by tiic last enemy of man. How hard
to y.eld when tha hopes of youth seem
ready to be lost in full fruition ; how hard
to obey the summons when it bids the set
ting sun of lifo ere it ha 9 reached its meri
i dinn. So is life ;it blooms but a dav and
withers in an hour.
How brief is life ! almost unconsciously
falls from the lips of one in the noonday of
lile, ns he revolts from the icy grasp of
death, lie scarce began to live, yet a
score and ten have fleeted past him, and
tune has already marked the ravages of care
and disappointments on his brow. The ex
travagant hopes of earlier days have never
been realized; ihev had vanished beneath the
realities of life as tho morning dew beneath
tho rays of tho sun ; he lias long since
learned that sorrows and unexpected mor
tifications must find a place in each one's
cuj) ; but heelings to the breaking thread
to glance at the past. It breaks upon hiin
like a fleeting vision. It see ma but the
work of a day ; it withers in an hour.
How brief is life ! is heard from him
who lias braved his liiree score and ten. —
Tho Bimkcn eye, the furrowed cheek, the
palsied limbs, the racked ami feeble consti
tution, all tell be has withstood tho storms
of many winters, that ho lias seen life in
its saddest hours, its brightest smiles, yet
he shrinks from dissolution to pause a mo
ment and contemplate the dreamy fiction
presented by a retrospective glance. He
has done his work ; lie has filled the time
allotted to mortals ; yet it seems but tho j
work of a day, and withers in an hour. —
How brief is life! may ho heard from
the quivering lips of him who has filled the
measure of a century and shared more than
the ordinury calamities of our journey.— !
That form once full of all the vigor nnd
freshness of youth —once doating in infan
cy, now doating in age—has stood like the
sturdy oak in tho forest blast when destruc
tion fell around it on every side, yet it
sinks in death with the reluctance of a vig
orous mind, and sees the past as but a ,
dream ; a chequered fancy. So is life.— |
It socms still but the work of a day—it
withers in an hour. — Kelly.

Guide in Buying a Horse.
A correspondent of the Prairie Farmer,
contrary to old maxims,undertakes to judge
the character of a horse by outward ap
pearances, and offers the following sugges
tions, as the result of close observation and
long experience :
If the color be light sorrel or chesnut,
his feet, legs, and face white, these are
marks of kindness.
If ho is broad and full between the eyes,
he may be depended on as a horse of good
sense, and capable of being trained to any
As respects such horses, the more kind
ly you treat them, the better you will be
treated in return. Nor will a horse of that
description stand the whip if well fed.
| If you want a safe horse, avoid one '.hat
' is dish-faced ; ho may be so far gentlo as
not to scare, but he will have too much go
ahead in him to be safe for every body.
If you want a fool, but a horse of a great
bottom, get a bay, with not a white hair
about him ; if iiis face is a little dished, so
much the worse. Let no man ride such
a horse who is not an adept in riding—
j they aie always tricky and unsafe.
If you w ant a horse that will never give
out, never buy a large overgrown one. A
black horse cannot stand the heat, nor a
white one cold.
If you want a gentle horse, get one with
more or less white about him—the more
the better.—A spotted one is preferable.
| Many suppose that the parti colored hor
ses belonging to the circuses, shows, &c.,
are selected for their oddity. But the se-
I lection thus made is on account of their do
t cility and gentleness.
MARKING SHEEP.—A correspondent
holds the following language : Until some
thing of this kind is adopted, I wish to im
press it upon every one who keeps a flock, !
if not more than half a dozen, that Vene- !
tian red is the best thing that I ever saw
used to paintmark sheep. It is, as most
all know, cheap red paint, only a few cents
a pound, end one pound will mark a thou
sand. Take a pinch of the drv powder,
and draw the thumb and finger through the
wool upon the particular spot you would
mark, loosing the powder at the same time, j
and it will combine with the oil of the wool, j
and make a bright-red mark that rain will :
never wash out, and which will endure i
from one shearing to another, but does not
injure the wool, it is readily cleansed out
bv the manufacturer.
