MONTROSE. SUSQ'A COUNTY, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 21, 1875.
I pause upon the lakelet's rim—
Thu waves, unfurling, upwar•l creep
In murmurs suit as thy sweet voice.
Whose music tulle my woes to Sleep.
I watch the trembling moonbeams move
And shimmer on the rippled sheet ;
And in the sparkling mirror find
Thine image pictured at my feet.
I see the linLoring dewdrops cling
Unto the waving lily's crest,
Ami watch the trembling beauties shook
In fragments from their peaceful nest.
I fear, lest hopes that cling to us
Like these may vanish into spray,
Before the many joys that sweep
The sweetest joys of life away.
And then a jealous lover's dread—
Lt fancy's fabric: of the mind—
Makes me clasp thee to nay breast,
And flee—to leave the world behind
To unknown naiad kingdoms flee,
Where years us softly drift as hours ;
And e'en the breezes are too kind
To toed( the dewdrops from the flowers
I crown thee with a rosy wreath
That steals the blushes of thy face,
And start—alas ! delusive dream
Ere I can feel thy fond embrace.
'AL ! truly this is more than love,
I give to thee my peerless queen !
It is the echo of my heart
Of what my soul's desire has been
THE WEEDS OF THEUEADT
The weeds of the heart how they flourish and
In the beautiful summer of life ;
How they spread their green banners to catch
the bright showers,
And hide from the sunhght the sweet spring•
Till the air with their poison is rife.
Oh, gather them early, dear children, I pray.
The buds and the blossoms of sin
Don't think it sufficient to plunk up the shoots
But deeper and deeper dig hard at the route
• That arc fastened so tirmly
The *reeds of the heart may look stately and
And glow in their emerald sheen,
Rot you'll never mistake them for plants that
If you weed youth's Wt . garden with patience
And keep all its winding paths clean.
Dig hard and uproot7cvery vestige of pride,
Or sin, in no matter what miise ;
But while you are earnestly pulling up weed',
Take care that you scatter abroad'no vile seeds
Again in your garden to rise.
When the weeds of the heart are uprooted and
Plant ftw.beautiful roses of love.
Let the ivy of trust and the Mlles of truth,
Climb about on the walls of thy stalwart
Tin they rcpelt Heaven's garden above,
MY NIECE NINA.
Nina! Such an absurd fantastic
uame to give a child ! But, then, Adeline
was full of fantastic notions. I suppose
th. re vief,!•r was two sisters more unlike
than she and I. As long ago as I can re
member, I think I possessed what might
be termed correct views of life. I believe
I can, without any semblance of beauti
fullness,lay claims to a lair share of com
mon sense and sound judgment. What
ever duty lay before me I did without
demurring. I was no dreamer, never
locked myself up in my chamber to woo
the muse and spend hours—days—that
had better have been devotee to more
practical employment, torturing incom
prehensible sentences into rhyme and
But Adeline, oh ! I used to get so out
of patience with. She imagined she had
a talent for writing (that is, I suppose
she did ; she never said anything of the
kind. Adeline was no talker,) and it was
the ruin of her. I used to do and say all
I could to cure her of the notion, but my
efforts were of no avail. What an amount
of time she contrived to waste with her
scribblinga— verses or whatever senseless
thing. I thought ; but there was some
who did not agree with me—Nivison, for
instance. (How angry I got with him
one day during a discussion we were !lav

I foresaW just how it would turn out
when these two were married. I knew it

fellow wasn't worth a cei.t,aud was a par
son in the bargain. I did all I could to
prevent it, I know that. But father al—
ways woulc, let her have her own way.—
So married they were, and' off they went.
Well, I expect she saw some pretty hard
times our there in Wisconsin, so far from
the parental pocket-book—which I need
to suspect, even at that distance, was
occasionally drawn upon.
I never could comprehend why father
should think so much more of Adeline
than of me. To be sure, she was always
coaxing and palavering about him, like
the great , baby she was, calling him
names, embroidering slippers and dress—
ing,gowns, concocting dainty diahvs for
him and all that: I had no time for such
folderol, with the housekeeping on- my
hands and the necessity devolving on me,
the elder of iB . WO motherless daughters
to represent the family in .sodiety. That
after my: long aad faithful discharge of
duty he Should,- in his will, divide 1118
property equally between us seemed to
me an act of input:lsable favoritism.

After father's death no correspondence
passed between Adeline and myself, and,
indeed, se neVer Met-Igain. Of Cu;.ni.

"Stand by the Sight though the Ileavene AMP
My husband went on directly. disposed
of their effects (the proceeds he afterwards
invested in railroad stock ; a very profit
able one, too, it has proved, compensating,
us in a measure for our care and trouble.)
On his return he brought Nina with him.
Could I have anticipated all I should
doubtless have prevented this. But the
child was only• ten at the time—that was
eight years ago—and so exceedingly shy
and quiet I could not possibly foresee the
trouble I was bringing upon myself. Nev.
ertheiess, must admit that I had an un
comfortable presentiment when, at first
sight, I noticed her close likeness to her
mother, it'd, later, when I foamd the re
semblanc.• consisted not in look alone.—
She was Adeline's counterpart in manner
te peram n t—everything.
I have heard some say they thought
Nina pretty. I never could see it. She
was too pate by half, and her eyes—well,
' I never could bear ti. have her look at
me. In fact, I will confess it here, I nev
er liked the girl, However, I have tried
to du my duty by her. If she had any
other kith or kir. to go to I should have
hesorned about taking her in. Bat she
hadn't, and there was no alternative.
I resolved on the start she should be of
some use to me, and that I would have
no tine lady airs. , And I must say she
has been serviceable in caring for the
children. (1 have been able to dispense
with a housemaid since her coming—at
least one item off our bill of expendir are
—and is these days it does require so
much money to live and keep up any
kind of style.)
Ot course I could not allow her the
same educational advantages of my own
childrec. How much she has contrived
to pick tip I cannot say. She inherited
her mothers taste for reading, and, no
doubt, for scribbling too. But I was de
tertnin:d not to have a repetition of that
thlly. I would have no more bockwomen
about me ; and as often as I caught her,
duster in hand and sweeping-capon head,
idling over Shakespeare or Milton, or
dear knows what not. I have taken the
book away and bidden her attend to her
work. I fear however, delibquincies of
this sort are not the only ones of which
alio has been guilty. One day,l remember
I had been out shopping, and, on return•
ing. found her singing or.e of Estelle's
snags, accompanying herself on the pi—
an.d. Of course, I couldn't have that. It
dues injure a piano so to he drummed
How indignant Estelle was when I told
her about it. The dear child! I only
wish she might have been spared the
many annoyances she has endured from
hating that gill in the house. I know
very well what a trial it has been to her
to have Nina always wearing about the
dresses she had outgrown ; but that was
an economical way which could not well
be avoided, and I have been careful to
k,ep her out of sight as much as possible
whenever my daughters' acquaintances
were with us.
if I had only managed a little more
adroitly when Walter Hansom was here I
last. winter. If I Could have foreseen
what has transpired I should certainly
have got her out of the way for the time
being. I might have sent her off to
Cousin J.etilima's ' • or, perhaps, I should
not have invited him to remain. A young
man who could behaie with such shock—
ing rudeness little deserved even that for
But business which would detain
him several days brought him to our city.
He happened to call upon my son Fred,
with whom he had been intimate at col—
lege, and so it was very natural that I
should ask him to be our guest during
his stay. A young man of property, tal
ent, and prepossessing appearance, it oc—
cured to me it might be a pleasant ar—
rangement to bring him and Estelle to
gether in this friendly . fashion. So I
pry-vailed on him to remain with us.—
(How often since have I deplored my cor
diality upon this occasion.) •
Of course we did everything in our
power to make the visit agreeable. He
and Estelle rode, Sang, played billiard, at
tended the opera—in short, was almost
constantly in each other's society, and
matters seemed to be prospering finely,
• when what should I discover one, morn—
ing on entering the library but Walter
and Nina sitting side by side on the sofa„
She had been sweeping, I suppose, and
he had come in and found her there. I
did not think it possible she would ven
ture to address or engage in conversation"
with a guest in the house like that. I
never allowed her to sit at the table or
meet socially with our visitors, all of
whom, doubtless, had theimpression the
was one of the domestics.
I think I• stared at her a full moment
in mute amazement. She quailed visibly
under my gaze. "Nina, you may go up
stairs and look after the childreil, 3 ' I said, -
She left the room without a word. I
wished afterwards I had concealed my
vexation, at least before Ransom ; for
immediately after breakfast (he had been.
unusually silent during the meal) he an
nounced his intention to depart on the.
next train, nothing could dissuade him
from his purpose.
I thought it extremely impolite in him
to leave so uncer;momously, considering
all the trouble we had taken to entertain
him, his attentions to Estelle, and know
ing as he did, that we had sent our invi
tations to a donde for hat very evening.-
an entertatnrnrent got Wecially on his
Estelle, poor child, s almost incort
solable,'and as for soli I Could only
give vent to my ieelin by taking Nina
to task. I reprimanded 'her sharply.—
What was my surprise when at last she
"Why, Aunt Charlotte, I didn't think
there could be any harm in speaking to
him. We used to be neighbors at Havre-
His father's • house was next- to
ours.. We used to ,play. together. We
went to the:same school.
I. couldn't find a word to say. • How
I knew that he hed.evei lived in
Well; in a few days there'cotrie a letter
addressed in a masculine band_ to Nina.
I tboulzht it best to examine its contents
before delivering it her: I thought
best to End out for myself what sort of
person might be writing to Miss Nina.
It was from -Ransom 1 It ''began.witb s
‘.‘Dearest Nina untitled to her unhappy
iittuatimi, and the trials *She was obliged
to undergo, - (the ungrateful gird what
falsehoods shesonst have told him 1)-and
emhd by asking hor if she had any objec
tions to corresponding.
Correspond, indeed i and with Nina—
gitd,so vastly his interior in every res—
pect. 'llow defying, to be sure.
Nina never enjoyed a perusal of that
interesting letter. I threw it into the
lire. I considerPd I was doing a favor in
preventing a promising young man from
wasting his sympathy and ink in that
foolish fashion. And besides I still hoped
that if the ease were handled carefully I
might yet bring about a more satisfactory
understanding between him and dear Es.
As for Nina, I was out of patience
with her I should certainly, then and
there, hare bidden her take, her departure
—seek her own livelihood in s.nne way or
other (she might teach, perhaps, in a pri
mary school, I thought; might do any
thing. I didn't care what, if only she got
herself oat of the way,) but the young
children were just then coming down
with the measles, and I could not well
dispense witn her services.
Some weeks later, the little ones har
ing entirely recovered, "now," said I to
myself, "it is time to speak." I was re
volving the matter in my mind one after
noon as I took a short cut through the
park on my way home from a call I had
been making. I caught sight of Nina
through the shrubbery as I passed along.
She had the baby out in his carriage for
pH airing. A man was walking beside
her. I approached. "This girl must be
Watched as long as she remains with me,"
This man was Ransom I He saluted
me in the most courteous mannerpossible.
"Nina, I think the little darling has been
out long enough. Hadn't you better be
going home ?" speaking in the mildest
tones I could command.
Ransom hastened to relieve her of her
.the carriage toward the
part- untr o ,nor and intabilq, it !liaison—
No sooner had we reached the house door
than, pausing, he took Nina's hand in
his. It was right there on the street, in
broad daylight. I could but wonder at
his audacity. Well, I don't recall his ex
act words. I know he made a very smooth
litttle speech, the substance of which was,

Oh, the helpless, frightened babies—
Still they come, and stir, they go.
All the world is full of children,

Fingers bruised, and broken toys ;
Wishing to be older, larger,

All the world is of lovers,
Walking slowly, whispering sweet;
Dreaming dreams, and building castles

Breaking vows and burning letters,
Smiling,lest the world shall know,
Oh, the foolish trusting lovers—
Still they come and still they go.
All the' world is full of people,
ilariying, rushing, pushing by,
Bearing burdens, carrying crosses,
Passing onward with a sigh ;
Some there are with smiling faces,
But with heavy hearts below,
Oh. the sad -eyed burdened people,
Flow they come and how they go.

',When autumn tints were in 111 C sky;
And emerald award with shamrock-flakes
Charmed gratefully the eye.
I thought of Erin's glories past,
Her flag that waved beside my own.
When southern shot fell thick and fast,
Where brother's blood was sown.
I thought of Emmet, brave and young,
Who died to hallow Erin's name ;
I thought of all her bards who flung
Abroad in sung her fame ;
Of Moore and his warm patriot strain,
"The Hart) that thro' Tara's Halls,"
The Minstrel boy, who e'er again.
For his dear,..country falls.
I thought of (jurrates classic word,
That braved a curious, frowning court,
Of tones that all the nation heard,
With faith and freedom fraught.
I thought of many a merry day,
Of lough uod jest find humorous wit,
Of Irish jigs and piper's play,
With dew to moisten it.
Of jaunting-car, and klrtle red, •
Of sparkling. eyes tor mischief made ;
Of Boyne, where Celtic Mood was shed
In spots that never fade,
And as I gazed on Erin green
The waters of the lake were stirred
And sunset shed a dazzling sheen
As sang the vesper bird.

And soul felt tear is freely thine ;

One daring genius, for instance, not long ago

number of men to "work," es the politicians

these canvassers would enter, cigar store and
ask , the proprietor for a - Paper of "Anderson's
tine-cut." The tobacciatist, in all probability,
had never heard of the article, but recommend

contemptuously declined. •In about an hour
another customer would come in and, make a

to his customers, end BO the article' became
quite popular. .• •

The canvassers were oftentimes compelled to

transaction... Ten men - , therefote, at a salary or
