. The Snow-Shower.
Standhere by my side, and turn, I pray,
On the' lake below, thy gentle eyes;
The clouds hang over it; heavy and gray,
And dark and silent the waterlies;
And out of that frozen.misi the snow.
In waving flakes begins to flow;
Flake after itke,
They Auk in the dark and silent lake.
See how in A living swarm they come
From the chamber's beyond that misty veil;
Some hover awhile in air, and some
• Rush prone from the sky like summer hail.
All, dropping swiftly or - settling slow,
Meet, and are still in the depth below ;: •
- Flake after Rake
'Dissolve in the dark and silent lake.
Fiere delicate snow-stars, out of the cloud
Come boating downward in airy play
Like spangles dropped from the glisteningtrowd
That whiten by night the milky way ;
There brozder and burlier masses fall;
The Sullen water buries them all;
Flake after flake,
All d r ow n ed in the dark and silent lake.
And some, -as on tender wings they glide,
From their chilly birth-clond, dim and gray;
Are joined in their fall, and side by side,
Come clinging along their unsteady way;
As friend with lirnd or hisband with wife"
Makes hand in hand the pasiage eflife;
• Each 1-z4teil flake
Soon sink; in the dark and agent lake.
Lo! While we are, gazing, in swifter haste -
Stream down the snows, till the air is white,
As, myriads by myriads madly chased, .
They fling themselves from their shadowy !nigh
The fair frail creatures of middle sky, , -
What speed they 'make with their grates so nigh;
• Flake after flake, - • -
To lie in the dark and silent lake. ,
I see in thy gentle eyes a tear ;
They turn to me in sorrowful thought;
thou of friends, the good and. dear,
Who werw for a time and now are not;
Like these fair children of cloud and frost,
That glisten a mornentond then arc lost,
}lake after flake
All lost in the dark and silent lake.
Yet look again, for the elends ;. •
A ghuon of blue on the water lies;
And faraway on the mountain side,
A sim-beam falls from the opening skies.
But the hurrying host that flew between
The eloud.and the water no more is - seen;
Flake by flake,
• -
At rest in the dark'and silent lake. .

AT an unfrequented watering-place on thi
south coast of England, dwelt Mr. Bertram
Fitzsimon, a,poor crehition of an aristocralie j
' familv. But though poor; he was proud. Thi
family was one of the oldest irEngla:ud. ' O l t
course he held aloof froth the gentry of the
wateriniz-place, except the ftnv who were un
questionably rich.
There was one exception to this`, howeve .
Mr. -Edgar, a young man, Offive-and-twent . ,
of wbom nothing, literally, was known; was .
welcome visitor at the .Rosery. He ow
this to having been the fortunate means . f
saying , the life Cif Bertha., Mr. Fiizsimon a
daughter,. who would, most probably, hate
been drowned but for his exertion's.Wha'
more was necessary-to procure hiin an intri•
duction to the family ? No questions we
asked abotit his pedigree,- • They saw he iv
a gentleman in manner_; ' , they knew that I
saved their daughter from , n Watery gray
and neither Mr. nor Mrs. .Fitzsimon objet
to his visits. 'Hie became as•oreOf the.g
lv—and.Mr. FitzsimOn 'soon discovered th
he had money at command, andswas not lo
to lend it. Fitzsimon on his• part, was ii
loth 'to borrow—a characteristic which. hi
man nature will sometimes retain in spite
the longest pedigree. ' . ,
There Was ,soplething peculiar.about
Edgar, however, Which' the Fitzsimons
long perceived. In spite of
. his cheerful .
his extensive acquaintance. -with books, a
.with the wider page of life, and the o
p .
' .nesS of 'his. mariner ? there Was a scrutiny-l .
his lo o k, a guardedness of expression, a
list er to repel, irquiry when anything.that hac
the appearance of even, leading to it as
attempted, that was not, satisfactory. ' But
the strangest thing of all to the minds of both
.2,1 r. and Mrs. Fitzsimon, was the insensi ' ill
,ty he displayed to Berthals charms. is
question had been much debated.. Mr. itz- -
simon's hope of succeeding to the family es
tate was remote. The possessor was a •
of his owa age, and between totem i
were ee
• younger- lives, with a claim .prior to ur
friend's. It Was. evident: to him that Mr. -•
I d
gar, was atall events rich • He had, ho *
W 7 •
ed three hundred pounds ofhina, and the l
t e
hundred was lent as as the firs
Mr. Fitzsimon saw that this would not
1 . a
bad Match for his daughter ; Mrs.' Fitzsimon
coincided it his . opinion ; but Mr. - Edgar i
showed no signs Of falling in 'love.. It is Prue . 1
he - accompanied
,her in many a walk over the 1
sands; that he hd overeomeler fear of boat, '
ing; But according to Itlis. Fitisimon; there
was no love in the busineas; and the husband,.
- eliagr'inecl that he should have entertained the I
thought of a .condescension' which ; Wei not
likely to be appreciated, coiled himself tip - in
a -more rigid exclusiveness than 'exer.• i
The most Unlikely things will sometimes ,
happen'in this world. One mornine., news
- tame that the Fitzsimon 'in possession', had
broken-hisaeck in a steeple chase. NV thin
a month from this time,'one b,y 'one, the ree
intervening lives departed this earthy. e,
• and Fitzsimon found himself ovrnero two
- estates. All was now bustle at the to cry.

perceived her hesitation: He .advanced and.,
held out his hand. She placed hers within
it, and the . : courtesies of meeting were -/ex-t
-changed, but somewhat stiffly. , ' I

Fitzsimon had alwaya held his head high,
but now it was higher than ever. It seemed,
indeed, as if his chin had usurped the position
