- Beautiful morning of light,
Cloudless grace of the sky,
Waters bathing the sight,
Birds with their minstrelsy
Singing gladness of day,.
Making the fugitive sweet,—
Till a red leaf drops at my feet,
And summer has vanished away !
The maple-tree swings in ether,
The ripples are washing the sand,
Winds give the waves a white feather,
And they fling them back to the land ;
The black ducks watch their play ;
But the crowding swallows we see
In the scarred old jUniper tree
Say, Summer is wearing away.
Shadows lie dark on the hillside,
Sunshine lies Warm on the shore,
But the Golden Rod' waves in his pride
And-the-clover blooms no more ;
Gone are white blossoms of May,
There robe is a,purple leaf;

For summer is gliclin_ .111V8 .

And the balm of autumn at length
Shall he grand in the setting sun.
Those early years! those early years!
Of childish hopes and childish tears ;
How sweet their cherished mem'ry seems
Of guileless hours and fairy dreams,
When erst a child in careless glee,
I sported round my mother's knee.
Those olden lays ! those olden lays!
The joyous tones of other days;
How oft their mem'ry o'er me steals,
And youthful dreams of life reveal,
'When o'er my eye of earnest blue
ICo cank'ring, care its shadow threw.
Those buried loves! those buried loves!
'Time's fading treasure aptly proves;
Whate'er my change, as life decays,
The thoughts of those far happier days,
Shall cling, through grief and gloom,
Till I shall rest within the tomb !
• Silver threads are gathering in your
hair ; and you are growing old, and you
often sit in the twi-light and think of the
times that have passed.
You think of that Wednesday evening,
long, long ago, whe you stood out in the
maple grove to the east of your father's
house, and saw the young lady walk
down the road to Squire Watson's corner,
and turn into the lon,,(riane which led in
to his house. The golden and parti-color
ed leaves were falling from the great oaks
and maples which stood on either side,
forming a rich, soft carpet for 'her feet
as she walked along.
It was one of those mellow autumn
days, wheuthe entire world seems to be
wrapped in a soft, summer haze, and when
one loves to sit down: and ruminate on
the past, and dream bright day-dreams
of the future.
You were only a boy then. Twenty
summers hadpa.ssed over your head, but
as yet no trouble had come to you, and
felt as free and as happy as the merriest
bird in the air. You had your gun in
your hand and your faithful dog Rover
stood by your side. You were just retur
ning from an afternoon's hunt, and you
felt rather proud of the game you had
As you looked again at the young lady
you felt a strange sensation at your heart.
How beautiful she appeared, as with her
jaunty hat and crimson coat she passed a
long. You fancied that she
. glanced
up into the grove where you stood, as if
looking for you.
You felt sure it was the young ;lady
who had been engaged to teach the vil
lage school, for you had heard that she
was going to make her home at Squire
Watson's, and you knew she must be on
her way there now.
• You went home and put your gun a
way, but could not stop thinking of the
young lady. You thought she formed
such %pretty picture as she walked a
long under the soft luhze which Seemed to
have gathered around the great branch.:
es over her head, and you. wished that
you could have been an artist to paint it
all just as it looked to you.
W hen you went to sleep that night
you dreamed of her, and you felt almost
ashamed of yourself for going the next
day up into the' grove, and ading in
the same spot you stood before, to look
down the' lane and imagine that. she was
passing along as she did the day before.
You remember the time when you, in
company with other "big boys," started to
school.. It was the day after Thanksgiv
ing, and the wind was roaring in the val
leys, and . the leaves of "sere and yellow"
were . flying before the angry gusts.
You remember how bashful you felt as
you went in and received the kindly greet
ing of thefairy-like Julia r and how ill at
ease you felt the live-long day. You won
dered how a city lady, just your age, should
know so much - more than you ; and then,
after consulting Tom Blake about it, you
accounted for it by saying, that she had
*eit : ct
• been going to ,sehoolrall her. life, whilst
you lived in ,the'country where they had
but five.or six month's school in the year.
You remember, too, how kindly Julia
assiited you in those "hard sums," and
how encouragingly she alWays spoke to
you, when you became discouraged over
the dry studies of arithmetic and gram
mar. You. remember how she always
spoke to the scholars in a sweet, kindly
voice, which always sounded a great deal
sweeter when addressed to you. You some
times fancied she cared more for you than
she did for the other "big boys," and the
thought always sent a gladdening thought
to your heart.
Ah, you loved that fair Julia ; but, like
many another, you loved'and knew it riot!
You remember, too, how you used to
get out on the play-ground at dinner-time,
to play your usual game of ball, and how
you used to watch the lower window of
the school house to see if Julia sat there,
as she sometimes did to witnes's the game.
When her bright faoe was at the window,
you always played better, and never fail
ed to send the ball away up among the
top of the trees.
You remember the great tall oaks that
stood in front of, the door, and how she
used to sit at their roots, surrounded by
_h er _ sc h o lar f , and sim*Romeg 'ftivd_oldsong,_
or tell them of her city home. You were
a big boy, an'it wasn't proper for
be one of those listening groups, yet you
often turned from the play ground to look
at them, and you often wished that you
were one of the little folks, so that you,
sing those sweet songs, and tell those beau
tiful stories.
You remember, too, how you used to go
to the brick church that stood on the hill,
Surrounded by those towering oaks and
locusts, and how you always -watched and
waited for the coming of the Squire's car
riage. And then when the carriage came,
you went up the broad steps and into the
house, and waited again for the Squire's
family to comein. You did'nt care for
either of the Squire's daughters, but you
kneW that the pretty school ma'am would
be with tlie - m, and you always felt a little
flutter at your heart when she came in.
You remember the exact place in the
pew where Julia sat, and you can see the
squire even now, as he walked down the
broad aisle carrying his cane under his
arm. When the hymn of praise was sung,
you heard Julia's voice alone, and felt
very uneasy when she sang from the same
book with the Squire's son. You thought
she should have had the Wook all to her
- .You are growing old now. Silver
threads are be , rinnin to weave themselves
in your hair, Yet you havealways remain
ed true to your first love. You haveseen
many other girls, but somehow they were
not as Julia, and somehow you never car
ed for them.
A tear steals down your cheek, as you
think of the morning she left the old school
house under the hill, and bade a kind a
dieu to all her scholars. You think of
how she. clasped your hand, and how her
voice trembled as she said "good-by," and
then how still she stood, with your hand
in hers, as though there was something
more she should say. You can't forget
how she again came up to you• before she
got into the carriage, and said "good-by"
again, and told you you must not forget
your friend and teacher.
Alt, she loved you then ! as truly and
deVotedly .as you loved her, but you did
not know it. Yott could 'not believe that
the grand city lady would care for the
poor country. boy.
You sit and think, and the tear some
how will run down your cheek. You wipe
it away, that another follows, and you
cannot keep your mind from running a
way back to that last winter .of yout go
ing to school.
You often wonder where Julia is now.
You heard that she married a farmer, and
went away to the West to live, and that
is all you ever heard of . her. And then
you wonder if she would not as willing
be a farmer's wife here as away out in the
uncivilized West....
Thus you sit and gaze away down the
misty aisles of the past, and you become
gloomy, and you wonder if. there is no
pleasure, no enjoyment at all in this wide
world fir you.
You have heard that "every cloud has
a silver lining ;" but no silver lining has
yet appeared to yoUr great, angry, frown
ing cloud.
Ah, well ! "Tis bettei to have loved and
lost,' then never to have loved at all ;" mid
so you believe, and you pray in your heart
that the kind, sweet-faced Julia may nev
ei know a want—that she may be happy
on earth, and that when the cares and
vexations of life are ended, you may meet
her on the other side of the jasper walls
of heaven, where no farewells are said, and
where all is. peace. and joy and love. .

Letters of Recomniendation.
A gentleman advertised for a boy to
assist him in his office, and nearly fifty ap
plicants presented theraSelves to him. Out
of the whole number he in a short time
selected one, and dismissed the rest :
"I should like to know," said a friend,
"on what ground you select that boy who
had not a single recommendation."
"You are mistaken," said the gentle
man ; he had a great many. He wiped his
feet when he came in, andelosed the door
alter him, showing that he was careful.—
He gave up his seat instantly to that lame
old man, showing he vias kind and thought
ful. He took oir his cap when he came
in, and answered my questions promptly
and respectfully, showing he was polite
and gentlemanly. He picked up the book
which I purposely laid on the floor, and
replaced it on the table, while all the rest
stepped over it or shoved it aside ; and he
waited quietly for his *turn, instead of
pushing and crowding, showing that he
was honeskand orderly. When I talked
with him I noticed that his clothes were
carefully brushed, his hair was in nice or
der, and his teeth as white as milk ; and
when he wrote his name I noticed that
his finger nails were 'clean, instead of be
ing tipped with jet, like that handsome
little fellow's in the blue jacket. Don't
yuu call those things letters of recommen
dation ? I do, and I would give more for
what I can tell about a boy by using my
eyes ten minutes than all the fine letters
he can bring me." •
Down the Hill.
The evening of every man's life is com
ing on apace. The day of life will soon
be spent. The sun, although it may be
up in mid heaven, will pass swiftly down
the.western sky, and disappear, What,
shall light up a man's path when the sun
of life has gone down? He must travel on
to the next world ;'what shall illuminate
his footsteps after the nightfall of death,
amid the darkness of the journey ? What
question more important, more practical,
more solemn for each reader . of our jour
nal to ask.himself ? That is a, long, jour
pey to travel without light, without a.
guide, and without a friend. Yet every
man must perform it. The time is not
far distant when all men will begin the
journey. There is au evening star in the
natural world. Its radiance is bright and
beautiful, and cheering to the benighted
traveler. But life's evening star is in
good hope of Heaven. Its beaty and
brilliancy are reflected from the sun of
righteousness, whose bright rays light up
the evening of life, and throw their radi
ance quite across the darkness of the grave
into Inimanuel's land. It has illumina
ted the footsteps of many a traveler into
eternity. It is of priceless value. A
thousand worlds cannot purchase it ; yet
it is 'offered without price to him who will
penitently and thankfully receive it.

The people - of the United: States, ac

sum, New York guzzled- $246,917,528 ;
Pennsylvania $152,653,495, and Illinois
$119,993,946. This is the direct cost of
a'single year, in which poverty has been
general throughout the country ; in. which
thousands of families have. suffered for

numbers have died - of starvation and ex

_ This is a curious world. Two .months
ago one B. F. Simmons eloped from St:
Paul with a married lady, both of them
leaving families behind thetti. Both were
in "good society." Both were execrated.
The other day,both returned. The woman
was met with reproaqites and epithets.—
Old friends cut her on the streets. A di
vorce was denianded by her agrieved
husband. She was voted an outcast. How
about Simmons ? Simmons was a man, you
see, and that makes a difference, you
know. His wife and weeping friends wel
comed him with embraces—the poor, mis
led prodigal. His cronies laughed with
him gaily on his gallantry. That night
he drove around town with his family be

Mrs.—no matter about the other name
—the other reprobate—is literally spurned
and driven from her home by all who
knew her, while her paramour and the e

lost his business footing, and is just as
much the favorite in society as ever. For
he is a mau, you know. Why is 'this thus?
It is wrong. One of three things ought
to come to pass. Either a woman's lapse
from virtue ought to be regarded with
more charity, or else the man who drags
her down ought to be held to an equal
punishment—or else polygamy ought to
be:established at once, and Brigham Young
elected President. It i simply shameful

as severely as men for the same sin.--

Express has a sententious and pointed ar
ticle on the baneful love of luxury, " dis

this that makesofficials corrupt, merchants
bankrupt, thousands of wives, and sons
and daughters shams and creatures , of
fashionable folly. They sap the lifeblood
from old time integrity, and lead the na
tion in the way of old Rome, in the palmy
days of the Patricians. What is needed
is simplicity of living and simplicity of

"The golden, sea its mirror "spreads

The eye can scarcely tell.
"So when for us life's evening hour
Soft-fading Ethan decend, -
May glory, berm of earth and heaven,
The earth and heavens blend.
"Flooded with peace the spirit floats
With silent rapture glow,
Till where earth ends and heaven -begins
The soul shall scarcely know."

Brightly in the vault of night ;
Many an earth-worn heart is yearning
Upward with a fond delight.

. INDIA RUBBERlNExN4usimi.x. — The
belt of land around the globe, five hun
dred miles north and five hundred miles
south of the equator, abounds in trees
producing the gum of India rubber. They
can be tapped, it is stated, without injury:
and the trees stand so close that one man
can gather the sap of eighty in a
. day, each,
tree yielding, onn average ,three table ;
spoons-ful daily. Forty thousand of these
have been counted in a tract of country
thirty miles long by eighty wide. There
is in America and Europe more than one
hundred and fifty manufactures of India
Rubber articles; employing some five hun
dred operatives each,consuming more than
10,000,000, pounds of gum per year, and
the business is considered to be still in its
infancy. But to whatever extent it in
crease, there will still be plenty of rubber
to supply the demand. .
