Two lovers-(I peeped through the keyholt,—
Hope 'twas a commendable peep ;)
Sat breathing sweet nothing? by moonlight,
When sensible folks were asleep ;
They said —but why should I rejieat it 1
'Twns whispered, you know —nothing more, i
While the rounl moon laughed in at the window.
An t I—through the hole in the door.
Two hands were cltsped fondly together,
Two laces were radiant wiih joy,
And I spied 'niong the frolicsome moonbeams
The arch-eyed and mischievous boy ;
And the fair cheek .grew crimson with blushes,
When bin el they soon should be wed,
While the round moon laughed in at the window,
And I- through the keyhole instead.
• •••••
The year# had whirled swiftly their changes,
White moons h id lit many a #ky,
But where were the rapturous lovers
I pieeped through the keyhole to ?py 7
Were 'hey building their fabulous castles,
\\ ith hand clasped in band as before 7
V bin tbe round uie n laughed in at tbe window,
And I —through tbo hole iu the door.
At last in my roautings I found them,
Sitting glum in a summer day's glare,
And I wailed in vain to discover
One loverly took iu the pair.
Ah, me ! and I ?ighed to remember
'1 he vi-ion that tuit me before,
When the round moon laughed in at the window,
And I —tbtuugh the hole iu the door.
"Small editions in calf' ranged the parlor,
With knots in their carroty bair,
Each bent on appalling gymnastics
O'er sofa and table and chair ;
Atnl 1 said to myself very softly,
Return oil sweet romance of yore,
When the round moon laughed in at the window,
And I—through the hole in the door,
I glanced at the trail little figure,
Bent low over some unfinished scams,
Then sidelong, the while, at the master,
And wondered li these were the dreams
That bewitched the blest hours with their magic.
In the sweet time ere they two were wed,
Wheu the round moon laughed iu at the window,
And I- through the keyhole instead !
GEORGE D PRENTICE -himself one of the most
gifted of tbe / meric .ii bants—thinks that no living
j>etc.-s can surpass the gracefulness and beauty of
the following lines from the muse of AMELIA. They
are exceedingly be.iutilul.
Pale star, that with thy soft sad light
Came out upon my bri lal eve.
I have a sing t> sing to-night,
Before thou tak'.-t thy mournful leave.
Since then .-u sotily time hath stirr'd,
That months have almost seemed like hours,
Aod I am like a little bird
That slept too long among the flowers'
An I waking, sits with waveless wing,
Soft singing 'mid the shades of even ;
liut oh, with sadder heart 1 sing—
I sing of one who dwulLt in heaven.
Tbe winds are soft, the clouds are few,
And tenderest thought my heart beguiles,
As. floating up through mist and dew,
Tbe f>ale young moon comes out and smiles ;
And to tbe green resounding shore
In silvery troops the ripples crowd,
Till all the o<-ean dimpled o'er,
Lifts up its voice and laughs aloud ;
And star on star, all soft and calm,
Floats up yon arch serenely blue ;
And, lost to earth and stee|>cd in balm,
ily spirit floats in ether too.
Loved one ! though lost to human sight,
I feel thy spirit lingering near.
As soltly as I foel the light
Tiiat trembles tbrough the atmosphere ;
As in some temple's holy shade-',
Though mute the hymn aud hush'd the prayer,
A -olciun awo the soul pervades.
Which tells that worship has been there—
A breath of incense, left aloie
Where many a censer swung around,
Will thrill the wanderer, liko a tono,
Who treads on consecrated ground.
I know thy soul, from worlds of bliss
That stoops awhile to dwell with me,
Ilath caught the prayer I breathed in this,
That I at last might dwell with theo.
I hear a murmur from the seas,
That thrills me like thy spirit's sigh's ;
I hear a voice on breeze,
That makes to mine its low replies —
A voice all low and sweet like thine ;
If gives an answer to my prayer,
And brings my soul from beaven a sign
That I -ball know ani meet thee there.
I'll know thee there by that sweet face,
Round nb ch a tender halo plays,
Still touched with that expressive grace
That marie tbee lovely all tbj days,
By that sweet smile that o'er it shed
A beauty like the light of even,
Whose soft expression never fled,
Even when it# soul had flown to heaven,
I'll know thee by the starry crown
That glitters in thy raven hair ;
Oh ! by these blessed signs alone
I'll know tbee there —l'll know thee there.
For ah ! thine eye, within whose sphere
Tbe sweet- of youth and bcau'v met,
Tbnt .-wain in love ami softness here.
Must saiio tn love and softness yet,
For ah ! its daik and liquid beams,
Though saddened by a thousand sighs,
Were holier than the light that streams
Down from the gate? ot Paradise-
Were I right and radiant like the morn,
Yet soft and dewv a# the eve ,
Too sad for eyes where smiles are born,
Too young for eyes that learn to grieve-
I wonder if this cool sweet breeze
Hath toU'hed thy lip# >md finn'd thy brow.
For all my spirit hears and sees
Recall thee too my mv memory now ;
For every hour we breathe apart.
Will but increase, if that can be,
The love that fills this little heart,
Already tilled so full of thee,
Yet many a tear these eves mut weep,
And many a sin mist be lorgiveu,
Ere these p-i'e lids shall sink to sleep—
£re thou and I shall meet in heaven
44 To Speak his Thoughts is Every Freeman's Right. "
Five o'clock of a piercing February
night, and so dark already that tbe weari
ed young workmen in Madame Tournay's
" Fashionable Dress-Making Establish
ment" movnl more closely to the window
to catch the last fading beams of light. It
was a small, ill ventilated apartment, shab
bily furnished and over-crowded with pale,
tired-h>oking girls—but what then? Mad
ame her-lf rolled in a claret-colored coupe,
and kept liveried servants to wait upon her
door ; and who never paused to think how
her money was made.
" Oh dear," said Grace Hooper, with a
sigh, " this Greek pattern is so puzzling,
and my head does ache so hard. I don t
see why Mrs. Wharton wants a dress al
tered that she has worn but once. Fine
ladies are full of caprices."
44 Give it to me, Grac<-," said Kate Sel
wyn authoritatively ; '' I'll finish it, and
you go home to bed, unless you want to
be laid up with a brain fever."
" But what is to become of vour work,
4 * Oh, I'll take care of that—it's but an
hour or two's uxtia work, wheu all's said
and done."
Grace Hooper hesitated a moment —she
know from sad experience bow trying was
an " hour or two's extra work" when brain,
hack and fingers were alike wearied out.
But the pain in Iter head was increasing
too rapidly for much remonstrance
'• It's very good tor you, Katie," she said
meekly, " at.d perhaps 1 had butter go
Kate Selwyn nodded a pleasant good
bye to tlie pale sewing girl, and began to
\vork on Mr#. Wharton's wine-colored silk
dress with busy, skillful fingers.
She was a tall, slightly made young wo
man of two or three and twenty, with rich
brown hair, wound round and round the
hack of her head in heavy lustrous cils,
and large black eyes. There was hut little
color in her r. d cheek ; Madame Tournay's
ivotk r-'Otn had stolen her roses away long
| ago. hut her lips were red as cut coral, and
there was an arch dimple in her rounded
j chin that sp >ke of mirthful temperament
j and unwearying cheetfulness. Poor Katie!
! it needed all her courage to meet the stern
1 realities of life, f->r even now she was pon
<l ring within herself how it might he pos
sible to meet tlie landlord's demand for
rent, already overdue.
" 1 cannot pay him any way in the
world," thought poor Katie; "hut oh, it
would he very haid to be turned out of
doors such weather as this. Why, what
makes the pocket so full Surely Mrs.
Wharton must have left something in it."
Kate S"lwvn drew troui the pocket of
the wine—colored silk dtess an embroidered
handkerchief; but there was something
still remaming—a ten dollar bill!
The room was comparatively, dark—no
one was observing the young seamstress,
and it was the instinct of a moment to slip
the money into her bosom, while her
,-het ks hunted and her heart throbbed wiih
quick irregular pulsings.
"Some kind fate has sent it to me,"
thought Kate Sclwyn. Mrs. Wharton will
never miss the money—she has an abund
ance without it. aud to me it is home—
So Kate Sclwyn worked away with fe
versh color, and hands thaljwould tremble,
in spitextf hers<df.
" Kate, how soon you have finish
ed it!" said one of Iter companions, as she
hurriedly folded it up, and laid tt on a pile
of completed dresses. "Grace IL-opcr
would have been two hours about it!"
" It was Lte when Katie tied on Iter
worsted hood and went home, through tbe
chill and frozen streets, the ten-dollar bill
hidden awaj' iu her bosom 1 HOME—it
was but a narrow room without tire or
light, but it was all Katie had !
She undressed hurriedly an>i crept into
her li'tle bed—somehow she could not say
her prayers that night. Was it the ten
dollar bill that stood between her and the
gates of Heaven !
Ten dollars —it was a jear since Katie
Selwyn had possessed so much money at
one time. To Iter it s.-cinetl almost untold
wealth—and several times during the night
she started np, half fancying htuglars in
the room, trying to abstract the precious
prize. Such a long, troubled, fever stricken
night! And when at length she arose, un
rested and unrefroshed, the gray dawn was
peeping through the one window of the
44 I can endure it no longer," thought
Katie Selwyn. " I would rather beg my
bread from door to door, and sieep upon a
bench in the market place, than bear the
brand of a thief upon my own conscience!
I will take the money hack as soon as pos
sihle, and try to forget last night, as we
foiget hideous dreams!"
She flitt- d through the streets, shivering,
as the chill breath ot early dawn smote up
on her forehead, and nervously avoiding
the passing footsteps of the few pedestri
ans who were abroad at so unusual an
| hour!
Madame Tournay's sleepy footman came
to tbe work bell in a red worsted jacket and
a dingy cotton handkerchief tied around
his ambrosial curls.
" Tears to me you're uncommon early
this morning, young woman,' said he dis
44 Yes," said Kate, trembling lest John
should read the secret of Iter mission. " I
want to finish something that should have
been done la#t night.'
44 Tnere's no lire in the wo>k room yet."
44 No matter —it will soon be lighted."
And Katie ran np stairs to the chilly,
deserted room, wh-re .dippings of silk and
worsted lay on the floor, and the chairs
still stood around the work-table, just where
they had been occupied the night before.
Mr# Wharton's dress lay on the pile of
finished work, and it was but the action of
an instant to slip tbe ten-dollar bill back
into its place beneath the embroidered
Then she drew a long breath of relief
it was as if some heavy burden had been
lifted from her over weighted sbouldfet9.
44 1 eau breathe more fteely now !" she
murmured. 44 Oh, Father! I never before
understood the full force of my daily pray
er; 4 Lead me not into temptation !' "
* • * *
Ten years had passed away, and you
would not have known Katie Selwyn in tbe
fair, matronly presence of Mrs. St. George.
Katie bad matie what the world calls 4< a
good match." Mr. St. George had seen
tlie pretty seamstress at his sjster's house
one night, and straightway fell in love and
married her. So, from want and penury,
Katie stepped into a luxurious borne, and
a husband's warm, true heart.
44 I really can't tell what has become of
that money," said Mrs. St. George, tho't
fudy, as she sat warming one velvet-slip
peted foot before the fire. 44 I left it on nty
diessing bureau this morning; of that I
am certain, and the children have not been
at home to scatter things around."
44 1 know where it is, mamma," said
Harry, a pretty boy of eight years old.—
" Wa# it in two bills?"
" Yes—what do you know of it my boy?"
44 1 saw Norah hiding something away
under her work-box up stairs, and I was
curious to see what it was, main ma, so I
went and looked, after she had gone down
stairs, and there was a five aud a two-dol
lar bill, all folded up."
44 Mv boy, you are mistaken," said Mr.
St. George, promptly. 44 Norah is the
very soul of honesty."
4 - Yes, hut Bruce," said his wife, in a
low, earnest tone, "she may be the soul of
hone-ty, and yet in a moment of sudden
temptat ion "
She stopped short. Norah herself had
entered the room, with a feather duster in
her hand.
She was a pretty young Irish girl of six
teen or seventeen years old, with large vio
let gray eyes, jet black hair, and cheeks
where the soft crimson glowed through a
slightly freckled surface.
44 1 thought you rang, ma'am," said No
rah, with her eyes fixed on the floor and a
tell tale flush on her forehead.
Mrs St George fixed her clear glance
on the girl's face.
41 No, ixoralt, you thought no such thinn,"
she sai 1 calmly. "Go down to the nur
sery—this is no time for me to say what I
Norah retired, but she did not go down
to the nursery, according to Mrs. St.
George's orders. She crept np stairs, in
stead, to her own room, trembling so that
she could hardly walk. For Norab, from
the adjoining room, had heard the whole
conversation, and knew that this, her first
theft, was discovered.
44 Sure, what will she do with me—it's
in jail I'll be put; and my uncle Patrick
rtttd my mother never'll hold up their heads
again. O, why did I take ihe money ?
Sutc, I wish I wa9 only dead and at

£g"Miss Letitia Christian Tyler,born in
the Presidential Mansion at \\ a#hington,
the beautiful and accomplished grand
daughter of Robert Tyler, so distinguished
for his zeal and eloquence, and a trusted
leader of the old Democratic party before
the war. is now engaged in type setting,
in the employment of the Advertiser news
paper, Montgomery, Alabama. This brave
girl shows that Iter blood descends from a
resolute fearless stock. Miss Tyler spent
the greatest part her life at Bristol, in this
county, where Iter father and family resided,
and where she is remembered by many old

in turning her hand to an honorable occu

FEAR or DEATH.—It matters not when
or where death comes to us, ivhetner on the
battle field or on the ocean, in the quiet of
our own chamber, or by some sudden ca
lamity amid the stotms and bustle of life,
we should make up our mind to meet it
with coolness and reserve which should
characterize intelligent, immortal beings.—
We have continued evidence before us of
the perishal le nature of all things , and
should neither fear nor shrink from that
which is inevitable. As our fathers
died before us, we must ourselves go down
to the grave, sootier or later. There is
neither hope, nor reason, nor apprehension
that we ever can escape the sad ordeal.—
Yet, notwithstanding this certainty, of our
ultimate dissolution, the fear of death is al
mot universal throughout the wor d. —
There are but few indeed, among the vast
multitude that people the earth, who are
not the slaves or, subjects of it. Even tbe
true and faithful believer, whose faith has
pictured to him unutterabe transports and
happiness in that world beyond the grave,
trembles at the appioaeh of the grim mes
senger, without whose intervention this
transport and happiness could never be
tasted There is a positive weakness in
th s, which is alike strange and unaccount
able. That the momentary pang the part
ing struggle and the closing of our eyes for
ever upon tbe sorrows and ealamaiies of
this life, should inspire so much dread, is
truly remarkable, win n we know that they
are all that separate us from the joys and
delights of heaven.
It seems to most persons, a fearful thing
to die ; to go down into the cold grave and
form companion-hip with worms; to sleep
the last sleep and be insensible as the dust
upon which the head is pillowed. But the
apostles and prophets have gone that road
before us; the noble at my of martyrs, who
now tune their harps among the redeemed,
passed through the trying ordeal: and the
Saviour of mankind trod tho weary w ay,
with bleeding feet and with dusty sandals.
All the wealth of the world cannot pur
chase for one single human being an ex -
emption from death and the grave Why
then should we shrink back with fear and
shudder at the approaching doom, when we
know it is fixed and unchangeable ?—Ratti
er let ns meet it like men, hoping and trust
ing upon tbe promises, which'have inspired
ns with confidence and given us faith in tbe
life which is to come-
A Cumous LOVE STOUT. —A very cu
rious love story is told by several of the
ancient writers respecting Egivard, a sec
retary to Charleniange, and a daughter of
the Emperor. The secretary fell in love
with the princes?, who at length allowed
him to vi#it her. One winter's night he
stayed with her very late, and in the mean
time a deep snow had fallen. It he left,
his foot-marks would expose him to dan
ger. At length the princess resolved to
carry hitn on her back to a eigltboring
house, which she did, It happened, how
ever, that from the window of his bed
room the king saw Iter.
In the assetnblv of his lords the follow
ing day, when Egivard and his daughter
were presented, he asked what ought to
be done to the man who compelled the
king's daughter to carry hitn on her shoul
ders through frost ar.d snow, in the middle
of a winter's night ? The lovers were
alarmed, but the Emperor, addressing Eg
ivard, said ; 44 Iladst thou loved my daugh
