WHERE REST MAY BE FOUND.
Tell me, ye winged winds,
That round my pathway roar,
Do you not know some spot
Where mortals weep no more !
Some lone and pleasant dell,
Some valley in the West,
Where, free from toil and pain,
The weary soul may rest
The low winds softened in a whisper low,
And sighed for pity, as they answered.—" Nor
Tell me, thou mighty deep,
Whose billows round me play,
Know'st thou some favored spot,
Some island far away,
Where wretched man may find
The bliss for which he sighs!
Where sorrow never lives,
And friendship never dies I
The loud waves rolling in peperual flow,
stopped for a while, and answered—" No I"
And thou, serenest moon,
That with such holy face
Does look upon the earth,
As sleep in night's embrace—
Tell me, in all thy rounds,
Bast thou not seen some spot
Where miserable man
Might find a happier lot!
i:teirind a cloud the ptoon withdrew in wo, •
And a voice sweet, but sad, respf,raled—`• No
Tell me, my Feeret soul.
0 ! tell me. Hope and Faith.
Is there no resting•place
From sort ow, sin, and death?
Is there no happy spot
Where mortals may be.-Ilessed,
Where grief may find a batty.
And wearines' a roil

IN OLD-FASHIONED ELOPEMENT.
J TRUE. STORY
In the mouth of June 1852, the ship Fame, Cap
tain Jones, arrived at New York, trom Laudon;
and moored at one of the (locks in the North Riv.
er. Her commander, George Jones, whom I will
pass over lightly was an Rigli4imaii, rough, on•
tutored and boorish ; yet he was a ;borough bred
seamam'at.tl a perfectly tit ing man to command
the hardy crew under him.
The chief mate, Charles tarton, the hero of the
present sketch, was the only and cherished son of
a wealthy planter in one of our slave.holding States,
then deceased. lle ha 4 been educated in the most
I lberal and expensive manner by his lather, who
spared neither pains nor expense to perfect him in
everything he wished to acquire. At an early age,
Charles acquired--unfortunately, his father thought
—a pasion for the sea, which grew with his growth
and strengthened with his strength ; unul it became
absolutely too strong for contiol. and he determin
ed to indidge ircou(cyai covie. He was of a no
ble, high spirited nature very handsome for a man.
brave and generous to a fault, arid withal his whole
existence was made up of romance. He was nev
er happy, never contented except when he was en
gaged in some enterprise in which he could call
forth sad exercise to the full extent all his powers
lie disappeared soddenly from college and alter
waadering around'the world for three or four years,
while his lather and friends mourned his death, re.
turned to his nativo land in lime to obtain his for
givenest and to take possession of hii estate and
fortunis, to the great disappointment of about fifty
cousins. His passion for the sea, however,did not
leave him; and having received the offer of the
berth al chief mate of the Fame, he lett his affairs
in the hands of a trusty agent, and again went to
sea, and as such we now find him in this port.
The vessel had been in Jour or Lye days, and
tie cargo was nearly discharged. it was a warm,
sultry day, and the men who had been at work all
the morning, were at their dinner in the forecastle,
Captain Jones was walking backward and forward
on the quarter deck, smoking, and Charles was
seated aft without his coat, apparently in deep
thought, hie eyes filed on the deck.
" Is the captain on board ?'' enquired a soft, me
lodious voice, which caused Captain `Jones to stop
suddenly, and Aurn round to gaze on the quartet,
aroused, and for a moment was utterly paralyzed.
The person who had asked the question, yet on
answered was a girl apparently about eighteen,
handsomely clad ; but of a beauty and loveliness,
that baffles my - powers of description. Her hat,
which was small, bat half concealed the finest head
of glossy jet black bait in the world, which played
in wavy ringlets over a neck and sbooklers of sur
prising Whiteness and beinity. Her forehead was
high, white and smooth as Pariah marble. Her
eyes were large and dark and they shot forth an
expression which could not or cannot be described
by me. It was so wild, so singular, so beseeching
Set so appealing, that one could not look upon her
or them, without feeling an emotion of pity and alr
" lathe captain on board ?" repeated the young
laly, as the captain and his officer in silence least
ea their eyes upon her charms.
" Yes, ma'am," bluntly and halt rudely replied
Captain lanes, puffing his cigar, and walkingeloaii
to her, with a lewd, loose sir. They ,call we
captain, for the want of a better."
~ Will you marry me, sir !" inquired the young
" Well, I'm d—d it that ain't a good one. Mar•
ry you! Why, my' dear, 1 have a wile in Liver
pool now, and I don't know bow many children,
so I can't marry You

of objecaon to marry you while fetay here"

The protid lip of the fair girl aided with proud
scorn, and her bright eyes flashed with redoubled
brilliancy, as she gazed for one single instant upon
the rude boor. She curbed her leelihs however,
and turned from him With an expression on her
bright, beautitul face that made him puff his cigar
with redoubled fervor,, and to hide his shame he
retired to the cabin.
She ►nmed to Charles, He was standing near
her, his bright intelligent eyes fixed intently upon
her. She saw he was no second Charles Janes.
ca Will you marry me, sir 7" she asked with a
firm, steady voice, but downcast eyes.
The'sound 01 her voice - *raised him from the
statute-like posture he had fallen into on first seeing
her. He paused—he gazed upon the lovely being
who stood before him preferring this singular re
quest, but his bps refused tolutter a - word.
" Must Igo farther, Or will you marry me 0
God ! is there no hope ! and the to y buried her
lace in har hands end sobbed.
Charles felt he was himself at once: ' He telt his
spirit of gallantry and romance rising-strong within
hrm. A thousand ill defined thoughts rushed thro'
his mind, but he felt that he was a man, ands►
lovely young woman was before him— perhaps—
before he had time to form another opinion, the'la
dy half turned to leave the vessel.
"Stop, lady. Your request is very singular—
very. Let me ask you one question. Are you in
" Distress! 0, God ! do not deem me crazed.
Indeed, sir, I am not. Think nothing now, but an
swer—will you marry me?''
" Whoever you are, or whatever you may be, I
know not. Can I not serve you in any other man
ner? Perhaps you may repent of a resolution form•'
Talk not to me of repenting, sir, and do not
waste any time. Now it is precious. You can
only serve me by marrying me .Will you do so ?"

_" There Is that about you that tells me

but a moment"
Charles went into the cabin and put on his kick
et, which he had taken oft while working, and in a
moment he was by her side. " Come, then lady.
11' hoevev you may be, I will abide the result."
He toe+ her on shore, and placed her in a coutit
which waa standing near, and drove off to a tienti's
house. He was shown into a Nosh. The door
was locked, and the young lady threw herself into.
She did not weep or eob, nor did she appear to
be in !ha feast affected by the :Levelly - of her situa
'' Sir," she said, rlsrng , " whoever you are,

You are safe'in this house, and. will return in a

Charles went out and left her alone. He went
to a fashionable tailor's in Broadway, and in ten
minutes he was changed from a rough, and dirty.

and his dress set oil to advantage his fine figure.--
Hereturned instantly to the lady, and when he en
tered the'roorn where he had lefl her, he found her
walking back Ward and forward, but not in the learn
agitated. She had evidently steeled herself to .the
worst, and was prepared for anything.:
"My name, air, is Ellen Moran. Let that sof.
fice for the present. Are you ready V' Said.she
said firmly, without betraying any emotion.
" I am lady "
They went again into the carriage and drove to
the mayoes, and in a few momenta were made
man and wile. When they left the mayor's house,
Mrs. Barton gage orders to the enachman hetself,
but. in a voice whose tones were not heard by her
" Will you return with me?" inquired Mr. Bar
ton, as his wile entered the coach.
" No, sir. We are going to your house, where
your presence, be required."
Mr. Barton ` looked very steadily at his wile for ,
a moment as she uttered these words, and for the
first time began to think that he bad entered upon
a very silly scrape. The idea even entered his
head that she might be a little t z_ v_it_tal aloft,
and it did not make him fiery comfortable..
The door was cloud andthe coach was off. Not
a word was spoken on either side during the whhle
drive, which Was very long—at least it seemed so
to him —Charles was intently thinking upon ,his
conduct, and was hall inelitted to regret his rash
ness, but one glance at his sweet, new roamed
wile settled that point.
The carriage stopped at the door of a house of
elegant exterior, in one of the most fashionable
streets to the city. He alighted first, and handed
out his wile in silence. They ascended the steps
end she rang the bell. The door was opened by a
servantin handsome livery.

No, Miss, he is not," replied the maarespect.
Mr. Barton cast a furtive glance around him 4 .•
Everything was arranged in the most recherche
style, and with the most lavishe.d eapense. She
led_ him into a pallor sumpnussirtumished:
" All that you behold,"said Mrs. Barton, ai the

Barton, rawly at a loss to account for the singular
conduct of his wife.
"Trost me, sir--try me—believe me. I will
tell you now all I can—all I have the time to tell.
Four years agO my father, one of the wealthiest
merohanta in the city, died and left me all his prop.

poor lather's death, well knowing that on my mar
riage the property would pus from his hands. His
conduct at times has been harsh and cruel,and par
ticularly of late. To-day, I found means to escape
from the house unseen. The rest you know."
She then arose and rang the bell. A servant
came to the door. "John," said she, "send every
servant in the house up here."
Mr. Barton sat perfectly still and said nothing,
but was mentally resolving how to act, and was
more than hall inclined to think hie wife t lunatic.
The servants came up and stood in the parlor await- .
" Mr. Barton," said his wife, "these are your
servants. Everything you see around you was
mine—all is yours. Von hear me," addressing the
servants, " this gentleman is my husband and your
master. Obey him as such. And, now, sir, all I
have to request is, that you will assume and main
tain your rights."
Farther she could not say, for this parlor door
was suddenly and violently thrown open, and an
elderly, hard leatured, coarse looking Man entered
and stood for a moment gazing. alternately at the
lady and Mr. Barton.
What is your business here ?" demanded he
austerely of Mr. Garton, who as he entered had
seated himself, and returnedlook for look. Mr.
Barton made no reply.

ton, "can you explain why this man is here
" S h e need not take that trouble, sir," replied
Barton, aristne. "That fa fy is my wile, and am

sir, what is your business betel"
" your wife ! your house ! Upon my word—ha!

"Come, sir," said Mr. Barton, "your presence
is disagreeable II you have any business to trans
act, finish it quickly. We wish to be alone."
" Why, you impertinent scound "
The word was not fully uttered. Mr. Barton
caught him by the collar and shook him till ha was
black in the face. "Scoundrel you would have

not so old and so contemptible, i would not leave a

Mr. 8111(00 loosed his hold of the terriljetruld man.
Mr. Moran, for he it was, seated himself to gain

awaiting the issue, and he turned .to Barton for fur

Mr. Moran said no row, but darting a look of

,Ellen had hAterto said not .a word. She had in

she was proud indeed to feel as she flaw did, that
he confided in and believed her, and would main

and placing her hand in het husband's and looking
in his face with an imploring, confiding look said,
" May I prove worthy -of your love, and may you
never repent your marriage, hasty as it was."
M. Barton pressed his lovely wife to his bosom,
and before he cpuld utter a word is reply the re
port of a pistol was heard. Ellen turned pale as
marble. Charles seated her on the sofa, and, say
ing that the rascal had been doing mischief, rushed
out of the room but Ellen arose and followed:—
They went to the room of Mr. Moran whence the
sound issued, and on entering he was found lying
on the floor, dead, oils side of his head was blown
entirely oft, and the room strewed with his brains
and blood. In one hand wan the fatal pistol, and
in the other a piece of paper. Charles took it and
read, " I die cursing you, and may my curse
blight you." - •
Charles took his wife from the scene, and sent
at once for the coroner. He came. An inquest
was held over the body of the miserable suicide,
which was removed to its final resting place.
Charles soon made his wile acquainted with him•
self and his affairs, and she was not at all (lindens
ed to find that chance had thrown in her way a
husband tail her equal in every respect. Ills 10r
tune was quite as large as her own, and his family
connections of the first standing. As there was no
particular attraction for Ellen here, her husband
easily induced her to go to the south With him.— -

On the Wheat Ely,
By IL Rowell, of Nichols, Tioga Coviay, N. I
The fly first made its appearance in Nichols,
Tioga county, New Yotk, in the summer of 1850,
and has increased yearly since. It is the insect
that is generally known by the name IV weevil
thronghnut the country. The weevil is a bug of a
very smell size, and only infests pain in the bin,
whereas the wheat fly infests it while growing.—
[t is undoubtedly of the mosquito tribe, being in
shape the same, and one third less in size, of an
orange color, with dark-colored wings. It depsits
its eggs undoubtedly soon aftel this wheat is in

when out to examine the wheat, the flies very no

positing eggs; but the majority of them had to all
appearance, been deposited some ten cie twelve
dtaya. The egg or larva, when full grown, is about
the eighth or tenth of an inch in length, and of the
thickness of a sewing thread, of a bright orange
crater, with scarcely any motion The fly ilepnsits
its eggs very nemerously, from six to eight around
each grain. Where these is but one egg to a grain,
it can'do but little damage, often making a slight
indenture on the sae of the grain. I found grain
in all stages of imperfection; some with large di
dentures on one side and large protuberance.sQn the
other, while they were twisted into all manners of
shape, or shrivelled and destroyed Generally
