The artist played on his well loved lute, Till all around were limbed and Mute; For he breathed firth notes so sweet and clear, That men and women wept to hear ; And sang of Wind of human lot, Till song and singer were qtuto forgot. And each ono thought within his breast, Of the thing on earth he Idred the best. The painter thought of his growing fame, And the work that should bring hint an endlcss name. The poet was trembling with heaven-born might And he prayed for strength to use it aright. • The scholar was dreaming of heghts to climb, And knowledge snateh'd from the gulfs of time. The•priest, like a saint, sat calm and gray, And prayed for the soul that was passing away. The maiden was thinking of books and friends, And of fair green paths with unknown ends. The lovcr ho walked in paradise, _ By a sweet young face, with its clear blue eyes The father grained, for be saw once more A soldier's grave on a foreign shore. Mit the mother looked to heaven and smiled As she thought of her infant, angel child. —Brook/La) Prograimne• EDWIN GALPIN S, SAORIFIOE. Stephen Abbott held his little daughter by the hand; the child en deavored' 0 stifle tiersniot tiered sobi while the g at tears rolled down her face. T e e had just closed over her mother, and Amy Abbott felt an unmistakable woe in her heart. _ " Hush, Amy !" said her father, as be hawk d her into a carriage. There was a harshness in his toLe, though lie meantfit not unkindly, but Ste phen Abbott was a man who never indulged in public exhibitions of grief. Stephen Abbott's .farm would now miss one who chid much to aid him in keeping a thrifty Watch over the ex penses necessary to carry on the bu siness. It was a few days after the funeral that he spoke to his &inghter thus-: “ Amy, Lulus!: ,nov: depend upon yon; the farm feel the loss rf your mother in ;inore ‘vays than one; but you are a sen , ;ible gill, and there fore can aid me eery much in -keep inf..; matters 4.or,der.” Now Amy Abbott was about thir teen years of age, and the re.sponsi bility she was expected to assume was very considerable to one of. such tend -r years. Ere .Amy Abbott had entered her eighteenth year, shy bad several. ap plications for her hand and heart, but each suitor in turn was referred to her father, who carefully consider ed the habits and qualities of the_as pirants, very ungracefully dismissed them all; as' in no manner •suitable for a husband to his daughter. Amy heard the fiat go forth against sever al she regarded with great prefer ence, but she resigned lirself to her fate with patient humility, . nor sought to interpose one word in her own behalf. ,?;) About this time there appeared in the village a young men of remarka ble fine appearance. He was more over the correspondentof an Million tial newspaper,. Now, if there was one profession above. another that Stephen Abbott, detested, it was that of journalism. It. was his abomina tion. As soon, therefore, as he dis covered that George Wier had made his daughter's. acquaintance, he sat faee sternly against the attentions he was , paying her. Some of \Ter's friends took the trouble to inform . Stephen Abbott that young Wier's character was unexceptionable, and. his talents bespoke him a promising; career.. But farmer Abbott was not to.be appealed to iu a way like that, and his prejudices °Leo having taken roqt, it was very hard to eradicate theta - from an obstinate mind like his. He denied the young than 'ad mission to his house, and otherwise treated him so rudely, that the poor fellow, who was deeply in love with Amy, wrote her a farewell letter ex pressed in the most touching lan guage, and then departed. The field now seemed pretty well free of "popin-jays,'-' as Stephen Ab bott termed them, and . his mind be gan to feel some repose. One day he came riding home, ap parently in excellent,spirits. He had been to the posk e offide and received !a,letter from au old friend ; in fact, the writer had been one of his youtli ful sweethearts, who having married had settled in au' adjacent county. Stephen Abbott had not seen her for years, and so when she wrote that, her husband and herself would be glad if he would receive her 'son for a few weeks as a guest,' farmer Ab bott felt a thrill like that he knew' in olden times, dart through his heart. The young luau, was 23 years of age, and he had been suffering from a slight illness which 'rendered a .change of 'air desirable. Moreover, he vas an enthwiiastic farmer, and would be sole heir to his fath'er's for tune. These, thing farmer Abbott learned from .the letter which 'Mary Galpin had written to him. Amy listened to, her father with a `manner which betrayed no anxiety to meet the object of his encomiums. To be sure, she thought it unusual for him to appear so delighted over one he had as yet never semi, bat the poor girl did not know the mo tive which prompted her father to applaud . . on,e whose mother he• had loved in other days. In due season, Edwin Galpin ar rived at Stephen Abbott's dwelling. He was received by Stephen Abbott _with a welcome so warm that it must have been gratifying to him. :Ile was.a grave and dignified young man, a great reader and' a profound tallie:r on sgiicultural subjects. Perhaps it mavhave piqued Amy's vanity that lie may so lunch time and atten tion to her father, and so little to herself, But after awhile he com =menced to seek her society, and she became reconciled enough to treat him as a favorite, guest of her father's house. • IEI Weeks flew by, and Edwin Galpin Announced his intention of returning to bis home, taut Stephen Abbott would not listen to any inch propo ‘Aul, and the consequence was that ;eadpin had to-lengthen his visit. In many little ingenious ways he continued to throw Edwin and Amy milord TOWANDA, BRADFORD COUNTY, TA., DECEMBER 19 1872. titsallantous.. SZGARDLEIBB or Dzsoraismose gra Ars. warn; together, and the fruit of this scheme soon began to manifest itself. Gil pin began, to' find himself desiring the presence of Amy more frequently than bad been his wont, and matters drifted en until at last be openly de clared his attachment for the daugh ter of Stephen, Abbott.• It at first she hesitated in placing her hand arid heart in his keeping, it was only natural. Up to this moment she had not learned to love' him, but she could not deny that she respected bim, and regarded his talents. The rest might follow, and she surely was building on a good foundation. , Edwin Galpin never seethed 'so well contented as when in Amy's so ciety. He read to her and walked with her, begiuling many an hour that would have hung tediously on her hands, for her father had provid, ed the assistance of a housekeeper, which gave her more relaxation from the duties hitherto imposed i.upon her. When Edwin Gilpin disclosed his feelings to Stephen Abbott, he had small reason to complain of the way he was received. , The farmer was scarcely able to restrain the joy he felt at the happy termination of his Wishes ; and when the father and mother of Edwin wrote, testifying their approval, Stephen's delight was complete. A round fortune httd-been amassed by farmer Abbott, and as the Galpins ‘4re well provided with the 'world's gbods, Stephen rejoiced in the know-, lidge that his daughter would be properly settled in this life. Edwin Galpin at last left for his home, ,to return again in a month. True to his promii , e, he came back to Amy and to love. It would be difficult to describe the exact state of Amy Abbott's feelings. .She -c)nld not ileny that-she felt gfeat respect fur Edwin Gulpin's learning, and she almost at times fancied she loved him. Perhaps the remembrance of the handsome young journalist still lingered'in her mind, forbf all Amy's lovers, tlii4 was the one' who made the most lasting impression on her 11,110.. But time softens if not oblit f:rates the recollections of those hal cyon days of our youth, and Amy Abbott after awhile could not help confessing to: herself that Edwin Galpiu was worthy of her heart's best affection. There was a re-union of the, Gal pin and Abbott families. Mr. .and Mrs. Galpiu came to visit Stephen and hiS daughter Amy. It was the first time Mary Galpin had' seen her former lover since her marriage, and as a„consequence tht]ir conversation, during the early portion of her visit, chiefly related to olden times. It was arranged between them that they Should j•yintly set•thu young folks up in l)sines. Stephen therefore pur chaso h fine farm, situated between his Old place and the village, while Mr. Galpin furnished the house and supplied the stock and farming fin- ' plenients, besides giving Edwin the control of a large sum in bank. The wedding took place early iu the spring, and the young people im mediately moved to their new hoine. Edwin , Galniu's energy and judgment soon made his farm the wonder and admiration of all who saw it. He was a very happy man, rejoiciag , in the best cultivated place. and hand somest wife in themeighborhood. He had also become EO popular that .he• was elected to filll several positions of responsibility in the counts. Thus far matters went along very prosper ously with Edwin Galpin - and his wife. They had been married 'about a year when 'business called Edwin from home several-. weeks. It was shottly after his return that he one }day remarked-to li t is wife :" I forgot ;to tell you, 4my, that I met one of your old friends while away, and gave him an invitation to visit us during the coming summer." " 07.ie of my old friends ?" enquir ed Amy. ' " ies, one of yours as well as mine - We were school fellows. Now, can you guess his name r " Indeed I can't," replied his wife. Who was it, pray tell me?" -" George Weir," responded her husband, with t laugh at her confu sion, for she turned very 'red. " I had ceased to remember him at all. Indeed, he had qUite passed away from' my mern.ry. "Never mind, Amy," replied her husband, patting her cheek, " you need not oe ashamed to acknowledge George Weir as one of your suitors, fur ho has risen to be a very import ant man, and wields a great deal of influence.' He told rue all about the times he knew you. He ib a good . fellow and is apprelciated by all who know him." That day Amy Galpin. .pondered more deeply upon the past than she bad done since she became a wife. Sha called to mind tithe hours that George Weir and herself had passed together, and Wondered if ho really had forgotten them. Poor. Amy, she Was treading upon dangerous ground, .but it was pleasant, nevertheless, to call up these old fancies, and invest thcril, with some of the glories of the past. George Weir was still single. She would father have heard that he, was married; not that she doubted any latent weakness that might. still linger in her mind; but then it would be safer, for if the matrimonial bonds are not always a barrier, they at least serve as a. veil, and that is a protec tion, albeit a poor one in time of temptation. As the days and weeks passed away,,Arur grew familiar with thei expected Visit, and her heart no lon ger fluttered when she thought of it. So, *when Oeorg,e Weir really did ap pear at thti fartn r -Amy was • able to meet him With less embiirrassment than she would have experienced' at an earlier date. He was somewhat cli inged; ho had grown stouter, and contact with the world had brushed rid'something of youthful exuberance; but in all else ho was the saute. He still preserved the same fervid glow of enthusiasm, the same hopeful and sanguine teim perativnt, but the old look of the eyes was. still there., Perhaps Any Gulpin recognized the last mole surely than the rest, when he gaze fixedly into,her face. I once heard of a student who so carefully studied the face of the hea vens that ho was able to give a cor rect reply regarding the weather without rising from his -- pillow, no matter what hoar he- was awakened. It may have been that knowledge akin to this enabled Edwin Galpin to determine the gradual decay, hour 'by hour, of the affection she had so recently pledged to himself. He could trace its waning as surely as he could mark the furrow his plow share had upturned. He was of a proud and sensitive nature, and never could , bring himself to confess to his wife that there was a• shadow on hiri bead., Had he done so t ere might have been fewer regrets in af ter days. But he permitted things to take their own course, and pa tiently waited for Amy to give ,him the opportunity to have an explana tion, which of course she never did. - She no longer met him with the glad smile she used to wear, and she was not near so ready to kiss his hat brow when he came in from the field, as she formerly had been wont to do. He noticed this, and more too, and knew that-sooner or later some hearts would feel enough of sorrow. Weir was the constant companion of Anai, and she seemed to be as much infatuated with him as of old. There will doubtless be many who will feel disdain for the want of repo lution and independence of character betrayed by Edwin Galpin; but be it remembered, he loved his wife .so well that he could never induce him self to believe that she would persist in a course so calculated to bring trouble to them both', when she calm ly reflected on the risk she was in But - matters could not run on in this way always. Rumor ,at 'hist reached the ears of Stephtn. Abbott, which caused him to seek an inter view with his son-in-law. ',lt was' late in the afternoon when Edwin visited Abbott's farm. The two sat and talked until late, and Stephen Abbott came to the conclusion to ac company Galpin home, and speak .with his daughter next morning. It was'dark when they started - to walk for Galpin's house, and ere they reached it a lurid light lit up the heavens and the loud . cry of "tire" was heard from the people of the village - Running as fast as possible, they discovered Galpin's house ih. flames., The lower floor was a _sheet of fire, and a cry of,horror arose as Amy ap peared in one of the upper witidowS, and stretched forth her hands in sup plication. No one dare venture into that'furnat':e, and there were no lad ders at hand. "Save my child—save her 1". cried ,Stephen Abbott; but no one seemed willing.to take , :the risk. "Will no one save her ?" he cried wringing his hands. There was a stern look on the face of Edwin Galpin as be approached the spot , where- George Weir was standing with the cro:d as pale a's a ghost. He lard his hand heavily : .on his shoulder, and placino. ° his lips on a level with his ear, he hissed thrd' his clenched teeth, " Now is your time! save her, for you. lore her!" There was -a deep meaniril , in these words,:and a terriblelearnatuess in his manner. "1 canna,. I dare not,'." pleaded Weir, as he shrunk from Galpin's g aze. , "Save her—yon love her !" hoarse ly reiterated Galpin, tightening his grip on Weir's Shoulder. am afraid —I dare not," ex claimed the terrified man. Flinging him out of his path, as he cast upon him a look of ineffable disdain and loathing, Gilpin fipraug, into the burning building. No one ever expected to see him return. Bat he reappeared nevertheless, bearing on his strong arms the form of his wife securely wrapped in. ,a blanket. Laying her at hen father's feet, he reeled and fell forward to the earth. It was the last time his eyes ever be held earth's.gladness. Never again might he look upon field or grain. Stone blind from henceforth must walk Edwin Gilpin, and a child could lead him. Ho was fearfully burned, and for the sake of one whom the fire had not even scorched. It is pleasing to record the sequel Whatever may have been the feel. ings of Amy Galpin previous to the event just recorded, one thing is true : never did woman more sincere ly repent for the indifference she had manifested toward her husband, and never was there a more devoted wife than she proved to be. For hours she would sit with her arms around Edwin's neck- and her cheek pressed to his own, and dearer to her heart was 'lle poor sightless man, who had lost so much to shield and, save her, than all else in the world beside.

DOW TEE PEOPLE LOOK AND ACVr-8110PS, The visit - of the Princess of Wales to her old home in Denmark, and the ceremonies thereon attended, give the correspondents of the London press an opportunity to make Den mark and the Danes known to the English people. The Princess of Wales is a great favorite. in Den mark, and the people most affection ately claim her 'as their own. A writer in the Times is mach struck with the country people around Co penhagen, who are nice lookingshon est, simple and bright ; the women in their quaint bonnets, consisting of a shape fitting tightly over their head. down as far as the ear, . and about five inches broad, forming the bane Work; with over this and at tached to it a-white handkerchielor square of muslin or lace, terminating in a point behind triangular fashion, look very nice, and they are never , tired- of lookinr , at all and every thing, and wha t is more they are honest enough to show that they are pleased. The servants are clean, bright and attentive. The people are all -devoted to Arno' lig all, clasSes soap' anul• water; brush and comb, are the init and not the exception, and appear to be used iu plenty, and with vigor ; their 'linen is a caution in the may of wash ing, and might be well copied at home by our laundresses and wash erwomen. The Danes pride them selves on this—that not even in Paris is such washing to be procured. IN HONESTY they are unsurpassed, and set , an -ex empt° to all the World. If' you enter a shop and buy ,an article, ,you can not speak to them, but you pin down your money and ypu pay exadtly the price, and your proper change is.giv en.

In every s4eet, and every place of amusement you see hats wildly ex tended in the air, the dames appear ing to be most particular in the way of saluting 'eaclr other. Two shop boys ineet, off comes the hat of each, it is held, at almost arms, length, and with a sweep replaced to be probably off again in a few minutes, and so on' as long as, a friend or ackuaintance is in sight, whether on ills side of the streel or on the other. If you enter a 'shop, off goes your hat, or you are considered a pooror—hen, an Englishman. Soldiersi aremost particular in galuting their "officers, whether non commissioned or not, and as particular are the officers in returning it, no odds low great the distance and dense the crowd. - The women are tall, and both they and the men are fast walkers. The men begin to smoke when young, and keep it up. Pipes are seldom seen in -the streets. High small heeled boots are almost / unknown. Beggars and drunken people are scarce.' The people are evidently well to-do, ns all are comfortably and well clad, and 'all the women well and *eatly gloved. The streets are wide, the 'houses high, with lofty rooms, They live in ilafs,'as in Ed inburg, is the custom.• They are ev idently very particular about 'keep ing their town clean, as not a pfulti cle of dirt is permitted to remain in the streets, which are kept continu ally swept, and the long tiles of m‘ with brooms and shovels show it.
