THERE 13 50 DEATH-
Tbcrejis no death! The stars go down
To rise upon some fairer shore;
And bright in heaven's jewelled crown -They
shine forever more.
There is no death! The dust we tred
Sh ill change beneath the summer showers.
To golden grain or mellow fruit,
Or raiubow tinted flowerj.
The gentle ricks disorganize
To feed the hungry moss they bear;
The forest leaves drink daily life
Frcra out the viewless air.
There is no death ! The leaves may f&K,
The flowers may fade and pas9 away
Ttiey only wait through winter hours,
The coming of the May
There is no death ! An angel form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread.
He h,:ars our best loved things avray,
Aud then we call them 'dead."
He leaves our hearts all desolate
He iducks our fairest, sweetest flowers-
Transplanted into bliss, they now
Adjrn immortal bowers.
The bird like voice whose joyous tpr.es
Made glad this scene of joy aud strife,
Sings now in everlasting song
Amid Ihe trees of life.
And where He sees a smile tee bright,
Or hearts too pure for taint and vice,
He bears it to that world cf li'htj
To dwell iu paraJise.
Born into that undying life,
They leave us but to come again ;
Viih jy we welcome them the same,
J'i':.::,'t in sin and pain.
nd ever near us. though unseen,
The dear immortal spirits tread ;
For all the boundless Universe
Is life there are no dead.

ti-ince. His eyes so lately filled with the
light of mild intelligence, becauio wild,
restless and auxious; the mouth twitched
spasmodically, and the forehead beaded
with a cold perspiration. With a sharp
convulsive shudder, he turned his gaze
from the giddy height, and clutching my
arm tightly with both hands, he clung to
me like a drowning man.
"Lo this cologne," said the lady, hand
ing me a bottle with the instinctive good
ness of her sex.
I sprinkled a little en his face, and he
soou became somewhat more composed ;
but it was not until we had traversed the
mountain and descended to the country
beneath, that the fine features relaxed
from their perturbed look, and assumed
the placid, quiet dignity I had first no
ticed. "I owe an apology to the lady," said
he. with a bland smile and gentle incli

acquit myself of the double debt, than
by recounting the cause of wj recent ag

urged the lady.
"Ou the contrary, it will relieve them,"
was the respectful reply.
Having signified our several desires to
hear more, the traveler then proceeded :
At the age of eighteen I was light of
foot, and I fear (here he smiled) light of
head. A fine property on the right bank
of the Ohio acknowledged me as sole
owner. 1 wss hastening home to enjoy

wheels, a tiny billet of wood, a stray
limb of a tempest tom tree, a restive
horse, or a careless diiver any of these
might hurl us from our sublutiiary exis
tence with the speed of thought.
" 'Tis a perfect tempest." said the old
lady, as I withdrew my head from the
window. "How I love a sudueu storm.
There is something so grand among winds
when fairly loose among the hills. I
never encounter a uight like this, but By-1 of a lady with the other."

"I only wish it was daylight, that we

And she covered her eves from the
glare of a sheet of lightning that illumin

der instantly succeeded ; there was a very
heavy volume of rain coming down at
each tlmiiderburst. and with the deep
moaning of an animal, as if in dread-
ful agony, breaking upon my ears, I found
that tho coach had come to a dead halt.
Louise, my beautiful fellow-traveler, be
came pale as ashes. She fixed her search
ing eyes on mine with a look of anxious
dread, and turning to her father, hurridly
remarked : "We are on the mountains !"
"I reckon so," was the uncouceraed re-
With iustant activity, I put my head
through the wiudow, . and called to the
driver, but the only auswer was a heavy
moaning of an agonized animal borne
past me by the swift wings of the tempest.
I seized the handle of the door and
strained at it iu vain ; it would not yield a
jot. At that instant I felt a cold hand
on mine, and heard Louise's voice faiutly
articulating iu my ear the appalling
"The coach is being moved back
God in Heaven ! never shall I forget
the fierce agony with which I tugged at
the coach door, aud called on the driver
in tones that rivalled the force of the
blast, while the dreadlul conviction was
burning in my brain that the coach wasj
being moved slowly backwards.
What followed was of such ewift oc
currence, that it seems to me like a fright
I rushed against the door with ' all my
force, but it mocked my utmost efforts.
One side of our vehicle was sensibly
going down, down. The moaning of tbe
agonized animal became deeper; and I
knew from tte desperate plunges against
his traces, that it was one of our horses.
Crash upon crash a heavy thunder rolled
over tbe mountain, and vivid sheets of
lightniig played around our devoted car
riage, as if iu glee at our misery. By
this light I could see for a moment

"Poor Louise !- poor orphan ! God
pity you !" I muttered in broken tones,
utterly unconscious that I had a listener.
"God pity her indeed, sir," said the
young girl, with a gush of heartfelt sym
pathy. "Would you like to see her?"
"Take me to her," I replied.
I found the orphan bathed in tears, by
the grae of her buried kiudred. J?he
received me with sorrowful sweetuess of
manuer. I will not detaiu your attcutiou
detailing the ellorts I made to win her
from her grief, but briefly acquaint you
that I at least succeeded in inducing her
to leave her forlorn home in the South ;
and that in twche months after the
dreadful occurrence which I have related,
we stood at the alter together as man and!
il'e. She still lives to bless my love
with her smiles, and c.v childrea with
her good precepts ; but on the at.niver-
sary ot that terrible night she seeludes
herself in her room, and devotes the
hours of darkness to solitaty prayer.
"As for me," added the traveler, while
a faint flush tinged his noble brow at the
avowal, "a for me, that accident has
made a physical coward of me, at the
sight ot a mountain ptecipice."
"But the driver," urged our lady pas
senger, who attended to the recital of the
story with much attention, what became
of the driver ? or did you ever learn the
reason of him deserting his post '!"
"His body was found on the road, with
in a few yards of the spot where the
cnach went over. He had been struck
dead by the same flash of lighting that
blinded the restive horse."

Giving in .Marriage." She docs not pos-

thik tllat t is to T"J be'
fore woman as her chief end iu life, and
that tho training and education of girls
is made to bear too exclusively upon the
matrimonial relation. She says :
"From the earliest time upward-? the
Woman of the present day is tau'ht that
the one end of her life is marriage the
one happiuess and ambition of her life,
marriage the only opportunity to be or
do anything, marriage and the only
sphere in which she can develop hor pow
ers, or be of service to herself or others,
marriage everywhere and by everybody
is she advised to get a husband. The
boy, on ths other hand, is educated for
manhood ; he is to go through his school
life, thiough the university and college ;
he is to choose his trade, business, pro
fession, or calling; he is to earn money,
and make for himself a home. And
then, having educated himself, and hav
ing gotton a home, society says to him :
"Take a wife to help spend the money,
and to be a useful and ornamental ap
pendage ot that home." The man is ed
ucatec, cot for husbandhood, but for
manhood ; and why is the woman not
educated for womanhood ?"
