THE PHILOSOPHY OF
ET camms xAeirAT
Were the lonely acorn never bound
in the rude cold.gra,p of the rotting ground;
Did the ridged frost never harden up
The mould above its bursting cup :
Were it never'soak'd in rain and hail,
Or chilled by the breath of the wintry gale,
It would not sprout in the sunshine free,
Or give the promise of • tree ;
It would not spread to the summer air
Its lengthening boughs and branches fair,
To form a bower where, in starry nights.
Young Love might dream unknown delights ;
Or stand in the woods among its peers,
Fed by the dews of a thousand years.
Were never the dull. unseemly ore.
Draggl from the depths where if slept of yore;
Were it never cast into searching flame,
To be purged of impurity and shame;
Were it never melted !aid burning brands,
Or bruised and beaten by stalwart hands,
It would . never be known as a thing of worth ;
It would never emerge to a noble birth ;
It would never be formed into mystic ring",
To letter Love's erratic wings;
It would never shine amid priceless gems;
Or the gilt of imperial diadems ;
Nor become to the world a power and a pride,
Cherish'd, adored, and deified.
So thou, Oman of a noble soul,
Starting in view of a glorious goal,
Wert thou never exposed to the blasts, forlorn—
The storms of sorrow—the sleets of scorn;
Wert thou never refined in pittiless fire,
From the dross of thy sloth and mean desire ;
Wert thou never taught to feel and know
That the truest love has its root in woe.
Thou wouldst never unriddle The eomplex plan,
Or reach half way to the perfect man :
Thou wouldst never attain tbe tranquil height
Where wisdom purifies the sight,
And God unfolds to the humblest gaze
The bliss and beauty of his ways.
(Front the Lady's Boot, for March.)
THE WEDDING DAY
AN ENGLISH' STORY.
BY HENRY WILLIAM HERBERT
THE gray, dewy light of n soft summer morning
was stealing faintly up the eastern verge of a sky
FO cloudless and transparent that it could give pro
mise only of as fine a day as ever shone over the
green fields and gay hawthorn hedges of England
in the olden time. The HAI and liquid carol of the
nightingale had not yet ceased, although day had
already dawned ; for so dense were the old thorn.
brakes on the hill side, arid so massive the shad
ows of the great lime trees in the valley, that the
bird of night was there often heard to sing the whole
clay long. But now he sang not alone, for from
every leafy hedgerow and young coppice the music
of theblackhirds and thrushes flowed out in gushes
of clear melody, not Empleasingly blended with the
shrill alarums of the village cocks, and the twitter
ing of the swallows under the cottage eaves.
it was in the neighborhood of a pleasant Kentish
village that all these sweet sounds were so rife on
a June morning of the year 18—; that last century
of the good unsophisticated times of old England.
This village, like many others of that date, and
some which even to this day have resisted the pro-
arels.of improvement, was not built in two long
straight lines on either side of a dull, dusty treeless
turnpike rdad ; not one house in it glittered either
with bright red brick, or flaring white paint—it had
no park; no court-house, no lyceum.
In a word, it was as unlike as possible to a mod
ern village Aywhere ; but most unlike of all to a
New England village. For its houses, or cottages
rattier, not one of which but had counted its him
ilred years, of rough hewn sand-stone, with"thatch
ea roofs all overgrown with moss, and yellow flow
ering stone-crop, were scattered, het's, and there, ir
regularly over a wide common of short, elastic
greensward, among huge oaks that might well have
witnessed the march of Cresar's brazen legionaries.
There were little gardens, gay with com Mon
flowers, the rose, the sweet pea, and the honey
suckle, attached to every cottage; -and to one, in
no way distinguished from'the reet, except that it
was a little larger, and boasted an arched porch of
Curiously carved stone work, there seemed to be
long nearly an acre of shrubbety laid out with taste,
and tended with unusual care.
Still, had it not been for the square ivy tower of
the old 'gray, weather-beaten Chinch, • which
hard by it behind a screen of aged yew trees, which
alniost hid its old wolf-toothed, Saxoh arch Way from
the traveler on the narrow and little ,frequented
mid, there .world have been nothing to mark it as
thekicarage, so humble was it if regarded as the
indeedli was, of a gentleman and
Beyond the common and its straggling village,
covering - all the level ground to the fork of a bare,
dawnlike green hill, the highest summit of which
was crowned by the ruins of an old tower of the
Norman era, which had probably been dismantled
during the bloody wars of the Roses, lay a wide
woodland park, or chase, parts of which were still
thick with akost priineval forest, which puts were
opened to the Run in grassy glades and broad vel
The manor house was not visible, either from the
village or from' any point of the road, until it scaled
the brow of the hill under the very shadow of the
old keep, which had.been erected probably tocom•
rnand it. If he paused there, the wayfarer could
just discern the . glimpse of a gray, slated roof, pod
the tall stacks ofcuriously wrought chimneys am
ong the thick black woods, and the quiet waters
which surrounded the hall.
At about ,a mile's distance frog ihe,house a pair

Everywhere else tharchaes was-encircledty eh,
old wail of brick, so sold, indeed; that" ft had rah
every shade of itirnatend hue,' with ;Cheer" y.par .
pet arid battlentent, all overran with mauves, of
which must have been growing-there for centuries
ere it could have attained such a degree of luXuri
aerie. Og l er entrance there was none" to the gear-
ded precincts, except by one sisall postern door,
which opened into-the church, and was flanked co
the right hand, as you looked northward to the bill,
by the dark woods of what was . called The home
Early as was the bout, even for those industrious
and antenna' days, when the very magnates of the
land were not too luxurious to rise nearly with the
sun, the village was s=tir. Almoit before
. it was
light the old sexton. had been seen halting across
the green towards the churchyard gate, followed
by the half dozen handsome, athletic youths who
were known through all the country round as the
• bell-ringeri of Melcoinbe Regis.
And ere the first rays of the sun bad tinged the
few fleecy clouds, which floated motionlete in the
still atmosphere, with
.gold'and amber, the quick
and merry chime of it festive peal had aroused the
heaviest of the village aleepent from their protract.
When the , light streamed down long and level
through the gap in the eastern hill top, and changed
the panes of the cottage lattices into so many glit
tering diamonds, the villagers might be` ,seen col•
lectihg in little groups, some in the ganlens, or tin
der the rustic porches of their humble homes, and
others on the green under the fine old crake, all in
their best attire. Clearly it was a festive day—a
day of joy to many.
Yet such, alas! is the very nature of human hap
piness, that which brings bliss to one, and the
crowning of hopes, and the full fruition of food pro
mises, is often fraught to another with grief ] with
despair, with heart-break.
Such is—such, despite all the theories of dream
ers and Utopians, must be while the .vouni world
endures, and the law of Him who madeitthe con
stitution, the condition of huitanity. And of this
was that joyous morn, the day of thoughtless, in
considerate mirth to the many, a great and notable
While the merry bells were yet ringing, " in the
gray, square turret swinging," in anticipation, as it
seemed, of some glad event, a light and hesitating
hand was laid, from within, on the: latch of the
postern door, giving egress from the pait into the
churchyard, ani after a moment the wicket was
cautiously opened, and a bur face, half..concealed
by a hood of sea green silk, peered forth as if to see
that there were no spies at hand to comment an its
It was a very fair face, of the finest Grecian mo
del, with large, soft azure eyes, and a profuSion of
rich, light-brown hair, tinged with that sunny hue
which the poetic ancients were wont to call golden.
Ha: the fair face was now deadly pale, and the
large, soft, blue eyes were dim and auffuried, and
their lids heavy, as though they had been weeping;
and the whole frame of the tall and delicate girl,
who, seeing herself unobserved, came with a quick,
light step forth from the postern gate, trembled, vi
sibly, either with present fear, or the remains of
past emotion. Hurriedly, and looking oft behind
and coiled her with a timid eye, she took her way
through the long rank grass, - which draggled more
than the hem of her white killer, and among the
low ridges which covered the nameless graves of
the poor, unlit she reached the narrow path which.
led from the r door of the little vestry to the low wick
et gate of the vicarage garden.
Into this, looking once more around her to see if
she was observed, the young girl turned quickly,
an l in apother moment was lost to eight among tbe
lilac bushes, and behind the trim holly hedges of
Early as was the hour, there was a lamp batwing
in the'room on the ground floor, and its faint-yel
low light, dimmed a little already by the increasing
brightness of the morning, fell in long lines upon
the turf from a g:ass door, in• those days an unusual
luxury, which gave access to the apartment which
she well knew to be occupied by the early student.
At her light, hesitating tap, it was opened almost
immediately by a tall, thin old than, wearing the
bands and cassock of a priest • of the Church of Eng
land, with a countenance of singular power and
depth, mixed with the utmost benevolence of ez •
A shrewd observer of himan nature! would have
decided at once that the owner of that countenance
must, in early life, have been a man of violent pas
sions and most energetic will, and would perhaps
have added that,the

acquired over,thern r had been gained only through
suffering Sind sorrow.

had been reading.
