One bal,my,Snmater night, Mary,
Jost as the rising moon
Had cast aside her fleecy veil,
We left the gay saloon,
And ht a sequester'd spot,
Beneath a drooping tree,
Fond words were breathed, btu you forgot,
That are still dear to me Mary,
That are still dear 10 me.
Oh we were then happy. Mary—
Time lingeed on his way.
To crowd• a life-time in a night,
Whole ages in ,a day !
If star and sun would set and rise
Thus in our attei years,
This world would be a paradise.
And not a vale of tears Mark,
And nets vale of tears.
I live but in the past, Mary--
The Glorious days of old
When love was boarded in the heart.
As misers hoard their gold ;
And, often, like a bridal train,
To maim and soft and low,
The by-gone moments cross my brain,
in all their summer glow, Mary
In all their summer glow.
These visions form and fade, Mary,
As age comes stealing on
To bring the light and leave the shade
Of days for ever gone !
The poet's brow may wear at last
The bays that round it fall;
But love has rose-buds of the past
Far dearer than them all, Mary,
Far dearer than them all.

A style for challengers : why she defies me
I have seen many coquettes by nature and many
more who strove to obtain that killing title, but nev
er one who failed do completely as my lovely lit
tle pet in her childhood, Rose Montrose. At eigh
teen she was mishits of rare beauty, a sparkling
flow of spirits, and a most provoking, bewitching
disposition,—in short, every qualification
ceed in her arnbition, except simple heartlessness.
Het mother vas never more than a mere fashion

the same useleh life Even at the point of death,

ted, but experienced oddity of an old bachelor, to
keep her daughter at a certain finishing establish
ment until she became property qualified to enter
the world as the fashionable daughter of a.fashiona
ble mother. Ong can hardly wonder, that her
mind trained under these influences, took an mil
!kW bias. ~And indeed, what young beauty,
spoiled by education, fortune, and the close friend
ship of romantic School-girls, wonkl have a differ
ent ambition on her first peep at the world from
that of suprentacy over the lords of creation I And
so Rose Montrose flirted, and laughed, and played
the unmerciful despot. lint I who knew her well,
was perfectly aware that all this was forg4t to her
character : I believed ; in fact, that her arbitrary
commands arche from, a nervous timidity, striving
to conceal itself in the role she would act, just as
cowards stemetimes in endeavoring to assume cool
ness, rush desperately into the wildest : dangers. In
no other way could I account for her .
. caprice of a
moment and feeling for the next hour. Her lovers
were as perplexed as they were disheartened. Her
playful peuishness would occasionally subside, and
then break forth in a torrent of sparkling wit at the
first semblance of sentiment or feeling. The truth
was, that she knew the sacred fatness of heart's
emotion, and shrank from exposing it to one, who
might see but could not understan 1. As was said
to rne, by a young friend, of whom "hereafter,
whose occasional puns betrayed his sole ungentle
manly propensity, her artlessness was so plain
that none but an ignorant cockney could call it
heartlessness, and be confessed with a blush that
he was brace such an one.
Their walk had been extended to the full sec

pouring into her ear glowing descriptions of the
olden days of chivalry, and-in depicting the thole

drawn forth his own. It was the skill which love
bestows upon even the artless. She had listened
in silence though all tumultuous within, until their
path ceased before the verge of a cliff, and she
awaked from herself to the artiaciat again It was
to stop the nervdus beating of her heart, and inter

' They walked back in silence. .
Pectin the evening Sumner left the house of
u r ,,N evers alt er an unsatisfactory l-1 - e saw'
that much of her coquetry was eflected„ - but 'there
was still enough to cause him serious uneasiness. :
Several times had be endeavored to draw from her
ad gnawer to his ardent mid undisguised avoirals'
of love, yet hitherto she had avoided the sUbject
with the full tact of women, as he bitterly called
her girlish blushing timidity. But she had now al
mo,A challenged him to the prod( of his devotions;
and•he vowed to appear before her on the marrow
with a claim for an audience, which she could not
avoid. There was a scorn too, as he fancied in her
tone when she praised the careful wisdom of mod
' ern lovers. He determined to obtain the flowers
that very night when none were abroad to witness
and ridicule his attempt. ' •
The cuivalrous plan, required some rather unro
mantic means in the shape of an iron bar anti a
coil of rope. These he procured from his sleepy
landlord, dud after * few minutes*
prepared to descend the cliff with their help. The
bar was firmly driven into the earth, and the rope
with knots every few feet fastened to it securely . .
With a strong grasp he then muirtienctiti his de
About half-way down he' stopped to rest 'for a
moment upon a crag t h at pushed itself boldly out
from the almost perpendicular side of the precipice.
Deszending.still farther, he found that the rope ree
ling upon the edge of this rock just above, suspen
ded him at some dozen feet out from the main
wall ; but when he had swung just opposite to the
flowers, a few violen t springs enabled him to .gain
a firm foothold. Vie prize was now in his grasp
but in the eagerness of success, he loosed his bold
of the rope, and it swung far out of his reach.
However, there was nothing peculiarly dangerous
in his position. Like the famous samphire-ptber
er, in a similar predicament, he knew that a bold
leap for the rope might save him, and at,tbe worst
the deep flood was roWmg only fifteen or twenty
feet below. Carefully sectoring the flowers in his
bosom be watched the oseilation of the rope, and
at the critical moment sprang nimbly opt into the
air. His agile limbs practiced is boyhood - among
his native Highland mountains and tall sea-dills
did' not fail him now. But his full weight, cast
suddenly upon the rope, tore it at once from the
bar, and he dropped into the cold sea. The gist'
natural impulse was to swim for the nearest point
of land , and the second to burst in a hearty, though
somewhat silly laugh at this uncomfortable termi
nation of his romance.
Once on shore he hurried to his quartets in the
village inn. Like a true lover, he twat dried the
flowers, ana arranged them into a graceful wreath,
and then more like a man of sense, exchanged his
dripping clothes for a warm bed. But his sense
came too far behind folly, and on the momingpfler
his chilly immersion, he awoke in high fever.
Rose Montrose was sitting alone with blushing
cheeks, and a soft smile beaming from her half
closed eyes. There was nothing arround her to
cause this silent expression of pleasure ; the maid
en was only receiving' elight from the thielienfitg
emotion that rose up from her heart, tremulous in*
first love. A sweet, uncertain tumult of thoughts
surrounded with enchantment the single idea that
love malty reigned within, and swayed the faity
scepter over her, who had hitherto prided herself
on her queenly command upon other beads. At
that moment she did ,not think of his k.eliogs for
doubt on that subject had
_never arisen, but she
trembled at the thottg,ht of her own deep passion.
And then the delicious color, that conciousnesi bad
called forth, fled from bet cheeks, and she clasped
her hands istaldenly at the idea. of her mocking chal
lenge the previous day. She feared that Sooner
had not seen through ber coquettish hypocrisy of
I the moment—that, which she then feared he mgiht
perceive; that, which was assumed to hide her
heart. Suddenly his step was heard, and--oh! the
mysterious working of woman's heart—ashathed to
be detected while his faze was yet transparent of
feeling, timid and flattering, shi raised her eyes
desperately with a confused consciousness that she
was about to finish her role of the coquette. In her
blindness she fancied that otherwise her heart
would be unavoidably revealed, and she shrank
from an exposure of its depths—most of all to him
She was. not yet sufficiently accomplished in her
game, and always bungled sadly. Never- more
than now.
Sumner entered the room with irregular steps
and flushed face, wherein lever plainly burned,

trepidation. Had she not loved, it would Ufa

Two weelts after this, Mr. Nevers paused in his

1212e:frer in his art. We wish him success."
One year from this time found Leonard Sumner
still in his Italian studio, and happy only when the
glowing subject of his art reminded him of a reali
ty more perfect and beautiful than even the deli
cately created shadows traced by his pencil. From'
the first he felt no resentment at the seeming bean.
lesseess that drove him from his native laud. His
noble heart only swelled with astonishment that
such unworthiness could, and s o rrow that it did ex
ist in a form so captivating, and a mind which ho
knew to be so richly endowed. A smaller soul
would have been considered puffing itself with of
fended pride : he thought of it only with sadness
that a kindie.l , spirit was imperfect. Still there was
a wound, nod without any angry haughtiness of
feeling., he experienced a siddenel mortification ;
that he had been rejected, and in sorb a manner.
Perhaps ke thought less of it than at fret, but this
was natural and in healing, Tune bad also soften
ed. His whole energeis were to meld to the culti
vation of his favorite art, and already his Audio
wa• visited by the munificent patrons of genius.
One day Mr. Nevem.- unexpectedly entered the
rooM. The young artist greeted his old friend with
warmth, before he thought of the awkwardness of
their meeting, but his inquiries for the - health of
Miss Montrose, were as cool sad fati-ness like as
any fashionable gentleman could have desired
Mr. Nevem was more embarrassed. The good old
bachelor fidgeted upon his chair during the pal
misery . remarks that followed as usual, and then
with awkward alinectiens explained the particular
object of his visit. It seemed that he had picked
up a protege in the person of a - Spanish boy, whom
he found in the streets of Cadiz. Tlin youth ap
peared to be educated, was friendless, houseless,
and at the time Mr. Nevem Barr him, 'was gazing
away an afternoon at a beautiful painting with but
areal in his pocket. Nature had evidently intend
ed him for an artist, and Mr. Nevem' present ob
ject was to obtain for him a place in some studio
as pupil, where be might fulfil all the expectations
which his fine promise had • excited. Mr. Nevem
told the story quite well, although he was walking
on strange ground, and acting a part, the tery tho't
of which, bubtwo months before, would have made
him roll np his eyes in comical amazement.
The idea of a constant companion mince pecu
liarly pleasing to Sumner, who lived only when
one with his memory, but the wishes of her guar
dian seemed almost to come from 'Rose herself, and
he could not decline compliance. Mr. Never. with
drew with an odd expression, half of pleasure, half
of wbimsicakanziety upod his honest eunnienaime,
and left the artist to follow out the trait of (Widow
imaginings, which their sudden meeting hid called
forth. Foolish, certainly, and profitleifivtait he al
most fancied hitnielf gain with Rose one the past

Early in the next day came his rialtos.. The
young Spaniard, delicately formed, and with bright
eyes throwing an aiT j of intelligence over his clear

Ficilian again appeared.
"It is unfinished !" eschewed Sumner: ,

Sumner quietly returned it
" I cannot part with this, either now while it is
incomplete or at any other time."
" Not part with it."
" Impossible."
They exchanged low bows and the Sicilian walk

proof, that Su inner's heart had breathed npner his im

none of this, for hisi eyes were again fastened up
on that sweet and 'generous face. And then the'
pupil, with a powerful ellen that sent the blood
ironic his cheeks and lips, spoke very calmly, tho'
his tones trembled somewhat in the earnestness of
his words.
t' Aye ! the painting is perfect itself, but there is
something incomplete in the expression of that hoe.

that years and epochs have not yet shown her how
different she really is from the artificial character

be thus, unless her existence is meaningless, and.
she no true woman. Believe me, they ace lines
and features in that lace, which, if rightly traced,

Sumner gazed upon this noble boy with amaze

eyes burned with a strange brilliance, and the whole
frame seemed shaken with a powerful emotion
which he was too proud to conceal A new but
undefined thought leaped into life within the artiste
mind; and he longed for solitude to analyze it s He
spoke in general terms, quite differentlfrom his im
passioned manner but a moment before.

llokomok—An Indian Tale.
To the west of the beautiful harbor on Town
send, in Lincoln county, Blaine, there is an open
ing in the land, which furnishes a communication
between the river Sheepscot and Townsend bay,
and forms a passage well known to navigators as
somewhat intricate, yet safe and convenient, be
tween the towns nport theSastern shores of Jlaine,
and those liing upon the river Sheepscot and Ken
nebec. Those who hare sailed through this wild
but beautiful passage, with its green banks; now
sloping strieothly to the water's edge, aid anon
rising in frowning cliffs, surmounted with towering
pines, through Aich the unceasing sound of
the wind' suggests to the imagination the idea
of a requiem over the ashes and departed- glory
of the red , man of f , Hokomok," which rises perpen
dicularly from the water to a great height, casting
the light sail boat or vessel that ;skiing over the
waters benealli into a deep dark shillowi.
The breathless silence and upturned eye of all
who pus the ail, bespeak it connected wilt wild
tales and faarding legends. It was here the brave
desperatejbaud of native heroes, when there was
no alternute but death or submission to the white,
man, rewired to die in the Wild freedom of theirs
ancestors, and to ewer the land of warriors with a
mind utiflitckled, and spirit imsobdued. Under
thisheiglit the chieftain, Hokomok, had reared Ins
bark covered wigwam, and conveyed Nisanyab,
thedaughter of a chief, to this place, a ft i
residence forthe bride . of a warrior, even Nienayab,
of the h‘ghty brow and dark eye; with aspirit as
bold and fearless to resolve, and as firm to endure
as her ht band. Though her eye , turned wiih a
haughty glauce upon the warriors who thronged to
Ihecabini of Hokomok, when it rested on him, its
calm liqUid light 'spoke volumes Of the wild love and
gentle titUidoess of a savage bride. Eau him 'she
wrought i nntiring.the feathery robe, the wampum'
belt and the gay mocasin. To please..his eye,she
culled the sweetest of flowers and sought the bt ight
est of Arils to ornament his wigwam, and when
he would hunt on the opposite. bank, Nisuayah was
with him, and threw back the beaver robe, bared
hertound arm, and with the skill and graceful mo
tion of it hinter's wife, paddled back the light ca
noc. .
At night she watched at the eVremity of the cliff
until he retuned from the chase, anti then again she
armed !the surge to meet him.
But Me pate aced race were fast encroaching
