From the Waverley Magazine.
Some hearts are iifce the s-nnd.
Impressed by every passer by;
But tnc prims are entie
Ere the tide is iiigii.
Oiiiers. like the clay.
Can be moulded' in many forms.
But need sorrow's fiercest fire
To withstand life's many storms.
Others, as tiie adamantine rock,
Defy the storm's terrific blast,
And impressions once received
Til! eternity will last.
Lewistown, May, 1867,
11l 1. O. WIIITIIER.
No bird song Buttered down the hill,
The tangled bank below was still.
No rustic from the birchen stem,
No ripple from the water's htm.
The dusk of twilight round us grew,
We felt the fwliiug of the dew;
For from us, ere the day was done,
The wooded lulls shut out the sun.
But on the river's farthest side
We saw tiie lull-tops glorified—
A teuder glow, exceeding fair,
A gleam o: day wuthout its glare.
Willi lis the damp, the chill, the gloom,
With them Hie sunset's rosy bloom;
While dark willowy vistas seen
The river roiled in shade between.
From ou: the darkness where we trod.
We gazed upon those hilts of God,
Whose light seemed not of moon or sun,
We spake not, but our thought was one.
We paused as if from that bright shore
Beckoned our dear ones gone before;
And stayed our beating hearts to hear
The voices lost to mortal ear!
Sullen our pathway turned from night,
'1 he hilts swung open to the light i
Thro' their green gates the sunshine showed,
A long, slant splendor downward flowed.
Down glad , and glen, and hank it rolled,
it bridged tiie sha-led stream with gold;
And borne on piers of mist allied
The shadowy with the sunlight side!
'So,' said we, • when our feet draw near
The river dark with mortal fear,
And the night comelli chill with dew,
O Father! let thy light shine through!
So let the hills of doubt divide.
So bridge with faith Hie sunless tide!
So let the eyes that fail on earth
On Thy eternal hills look forth ;
And in thy beckoning angels know
The dear ones whom we love below!'
The in;;cl and tlic Temptress.
George Jackson was a young man
of promise, and was so considered by
all in his native town. lie was a law
yer by profession, and was gradually
laying the foundation for a strong and
steady practice.
lie had one great drawback to con
tend against, however. He was a man
of a strong, impetuous nature, and had
inherited with it a fondness for di.isi
pation. In his younger days, and un
til he commenced the practice of his
profession, lie had led a wild, reckless
life, and had been regarded as a hope
less case. Upon receiving his certifi
cate lie had suddenly astonished his
friends by an abrupt discontinuance of
his old habits, and a steady applica
tion to business.
Yet no one knew what a struggle it
cost him to do so. Xo one knew the
mental agony he endured in trying to
cast off the temptation which constant
ly haunted him, and sought to cast
him down from the position he had
reached. It was, with him, a continu
al effort; for, in the society in which
he moved, not a day passed that lie did
not experience a temptation to aban
don his resolution, and indulge just
once, in the dangerous pleasure. His
legal friends were hy no means so
strict in their habits, and they fre
quently urgently urged him to join
in a friendly glass; and he scarcely at
tended an entertainment that he was
not offered wine. Ail theso offers were
quietly and courteously refused; but
j sometimes the young man felt that the
effort would snap his heartstrings He
n ade the struggle bravely, though. —
He firmly resolved never again to taste
intoxicating liquor, tor lie knew him
self well enough to he assured that the
rirst glass would only lead to another,
and the old thirst for liquor once
aroused, he could not tell where it
would end. Thus matters stood when
this story opens.
Mr., Jackson feeling that he was on
the road to success, and that prudence
and energy would certainly bring him
that blessing, thought it about time
that he should take a wife. He be
lieved that lie had arrived at years ot
discretion, and was capable of making
a judicious selection, and lie ended the
matter by resolving to settle this ques
l tion as soon as he had an opportunity.
In the town in which lie was resid
ing were two young women, who had
long divided the admiration of the gal
One was a beautiful, brilliant crea
ture, with glorious black tresses of the
same hue. She was, hy many consid
ered the belle of the town ; and indeed
it seemed hard to find a more beautiful
woman than Sarah Cariyle.
Others, however, gave the prefer
jencc to Lucy Lane, a quiet, modest
little thing, whose exquisitely sweet
face seemed to have stepped out from
one of Raphael's pictures
Mr. Jackson had known both ladies
for some time, but as he had not until
recently considered himself a 'marry
ing man,'had regarded thorn simply
as ordinary acquaintances. Like oth
ers, he had been perplexed to decide
which was the more beautiful. At the
first glance he invariably awarded the
palm to Miss Carlylo; but a sight of
Lucy Lane's sweet face would scatter;
this conclusion to the winds, and he
would feel irresistably drawn by the]
When lie made up his mind to hunt]
for a wife, his thoughts went immedi
ately to the two beauties, and he re
solved, that ii' he found their other
qualities such as he hoped, to try anti
win the one he could love best for his;
wife ; to tell the truth, the young man j
was half in love with both, but with a I
growing preference to Lucy. He want- ]
ed aw fe for something more than
mere beauty, and he could not help he- i
lieving that lie would find what he de
sired more surely in Miss Lane than
in Miss Carlylo. A favorable opportu j
nity soon presented itself to decide the l
Miss Cariyle felt flattered by the at
tention of one who bade so fair to j
achieve distinction, and resolved to;
win him if her powers of fascination]
could do so.
On her twenty-fourth birth-day she
gave an entertainment which surpas-j
sed ain*thing the town had ever wit I
nessed. George Jackson was there I
She was radiantly beautiful, and the;
young man was half determined toad
dress her before the evening was over ;
When the guests went into thclsup
per room, Mr. Jackson found himself]
between two beauties. Some one pro !
posed the health of the fair hostess,!
atul all but the j*oung man drained]
their glasses to the bottom. He did
not drink. Miss Cariyle noticed this I
and said to him in surprise:
'ls it possible thai you refuse to:
drink my health, Mr. Jackson ?'
'Pardon tno,' lie said calmly,'you
know I never drink wine.'
' But this once will not make any
difference,' she urged smilingly.
' I am sorry to refuse you,' he said i
'hut I must do so. I resolved five:
years ago never to taste any intoxica
ting liquors. I might do myself great
harm by acceding to your request.'
• 1 am sure 3-011 cannot do wrong to
drink one glass and that to 1113* health,'
she said as sweetty as before.
She saw Lucy Lane watching them
calml3*, and she meant to show that
3'oung lud3* how greatly she had the
3*oung lawyer in her power. But for
this she would have accepted his ex
cuse, ami ceased to urge him. Mi-s
Lane's face flushed as she heard the
tuning temptress* speech, and involun
taril)' she gazed at Jackson as if a wait
ing his answer.
' Miss Carlylo,' said the young man
with evident embarrassment, '1 beg
3*ou will not urge me in this matter. ]
1 have made-a solemn resolution loab
stain from till kinds of liquors. I con
sidcr 1113' honor involved in this re
solve, and I am sure you would not
have me prove false to it'
' You will not do so by obliging me
this once,' still persisted tiie beau 13*. —
I' It is not fair for 3*ou alone to refuse
to drink 013- health. I am of
fended with 3*ou. Idon'tsee wli3*3'ou

•To he candid with you,'speaking
slow, while his face flushed painfully,
1 am afraid to do so. You remember
the life I led five years ago. I am
afraid that even one single departure
from the path I have marked out for
myself might drag ine back lo it.'
Turning his head for a moment, he
saw Miss Lane standing b3* him, and
he knew from the look of sympatln*
which her face wore, that she had
heard the conversation.
' What shall I do,' ho asked her al
most unconscious^*.
' You must decule for yourself,' she
answered ' but I would die be
; f'oro I would abandon such a resolu
Neither saw the angry flash that
darted from Miss Carole's e3*es. She
controlled herself, however, and said
carelessly : ' I shall urge 3'ou 110 more,
Mr. Jackson, and I am sony 3*oll should
lie so much afraid to pa}* 1110 so simple
a compliment.'
She bowed and passed to another
portion of the room, thinking that the
young man, in order to avoid offend
ing her, would fin ally 3'ield.
He did not and she soon saw him
: leave the house. He went away with
jtho matrimonial question finally set
tled. A woman who would urge him
as she had done to violate such a reso
lution, was not the person for a wife.
Liny Lane's simple rcpl3* decided his
] doubts in her favor, and the next da 3*
the 3*oung lady received a formal offer
iof his hand and heart, which she
promptly accepted. The3 r were mar
ried, and never aftowards did Mr. Jack
son liave'cause to regret Miss Carole's
conduct towards him for it gained him
a wife.

this region All men form their idea
of the Deity somewhat from them

I spared em this. There is such a

But all this wuz spiled the next day.
There wuz an eggstraordinary heavy
