Deax Lillian, all I wished is won !
I sit beneath Italia's sun,
Where olive orchards gleam and quiver
Along the banks of Arno's river. •
Through laurel leaves, the dim gfeen light
Falls on my forehead as I writ,
And the sweet chimes of vesper, ringing,
Blend with the contadina's singing.
Rich is the soil with Fancy's gold;
The stirring memories of old
Rise thronging in my haunted vision,
And rouse my spirit's young ambition !
But, as the radiant sunsets close
Above Val d'Arno'i3 bowers of rose,
My soul forgets the olden glory,
And deems our love a dearer story.
Thy words, in memory's ear, outchime
The music of the Tuscan rhyme;
Thou standest here—the gentle hearted—
Amid the shades of bards departed.
Their garlands of immortal bay,
I see before thee I:de away,
And turn from Petrarch'z• 'passion glances
To my own dearer heart romances ! ;.
Sad is the opal glow that fires
The midnight of the cypress spires,
And cold the scented wind that closes
The hearts of bright Etruscan roses!
The fair Italian dream I chased,
A single thought of thee effaced ;
For the true clime of song and sun,
Lies in the heart which mine bath won!
The Blue Birds.
The Blue Bird's song again we hear,
Sweet harbinger of Spring !
Its notes are welcome to my ear,
I love to hear it sing!
It comes the soonest of its race,
And files with g.ntle wing;
It seeks the old frequented place,
And there it loves to sing.
Come, gentle bird, and let us hear
Thy early notes of Spring;
And may thy mate, as wont, be near
To share the joy ye bring.
Caine, build the nest, the hollow rail
Is where it used to be ;
The food ye want, it shall not fail,
And we will welcome thee !
The Blue Mid's song we love to hear,
Sweet harbinger of Spring!
Its notes are welcome to my ear,
I love to hear.it sing !

The- Widow and her Son.
In a miserable shanty, in a dark and
gloomy street of a city which shall he name.;
less, lived the widow Grey and her only
child. In one corner of the single room was
a heap of straw, the only bed which had
been theirs for• many a night. In the mid
dle of the room was an old stool, and a block,
which served both' for seat and table—and
what need, had they for table ? food had not
passed their lips for nearly three days—and
there they were, starving in the midst of
plenty. On the hearth lay a pile of ashes,
which the wind from the broken window
was scattering over the floor; there had been
fire there yesterday; but a heavy snow had
fallen during the night, (for it was a bitter
cold night in December,) and little Willie
could find no chips to make one to-day.
Mr. Grey - 11 Rd Once been . :;1 prosperous
circu!=`,iiii";es, Uut bUsiness failed: and eve
r• article of furniture was sold to satisfy his
heartless creditors; they were thus reduced
to poverty; and a fever which prevailed .
throughout•the city soon brought Mr.,Grey
to the tomb.
Mrs. Grey endeavored to support herself
and child by sewing, but being of a delicate
constitution, the little she could earn in this
way barely served to get food for them, and
Willie was as yet too young to work. Night
was fast approaching. "I cannot see you
starve, my son; I will go to Mrs. Melville,
and ask her to lend me a few pence to buy
food with to-night, and to-morrow I will sew
hard to make up for it." said Mrs. Grey, as
she stroked Willie's bright cur's; but the
child heard her not, for hr had fallen asleep
with his head in his mother's lap ; and gent
ly lifting him, she; laid him on the miserable
bed, and placed a tattered shawl over him
to protect him from the cold ; then rising,
she threw an old cloak about her person, and
proceeded into the street. A few minutes
walk brought her to the elegant mansion of
Mr. Melville. The bright light and merry
voices within told that the inmates knew
nothing of want or suffering. Hastily pull
ing the bell, after waiting for some time, the
door was-at length opened by the foetmith.
"Can I-see Mrs. Melville." •
►"She is engaged." -
"Can I see the yob** Intiy. - thett fib
"Just wait a moment, and I will go and
Who is it, John ?" asked Laura Marvale,
as he opened the parlor door.
It is the woman that sews for Mrs. Mel
ville.," answered John, with a respectful
"How . provoking !" exclaimed Laura ;
"tell her to cull again to-morrow, as we have
company to-night, and cannot attend to her."
"Yes, Miss," replied the footman, and
proceeded to deliver his message.
"Miss Melville wishes you to call again,
as she has company this evening," and mut
tering to himself something about people not
staying at home this weather.
The widow answered not, but descending
the steps,stood for a - moment looking around
her. Her object had evidently been to beg,
but the stores were long since closed, and the
watchman's cry of "past ten o'clock," made
her draw close to the dark recesses of the
houses as he. passed her. "God help us,"
she mu rmered, as clasping her hands in des
pair, she turned down the narrow street
which led to their miserable home.—Scarce
ly able . to walk from excessive weakness, and
. chilled through with remaining in the cold so
long, she reached the house,and pushing the
door open, threw herself on the fkrcir by the
side of the child. Clasping him , in her
arms, she pressed his 'little- face loser to
hers, while the hot tears rolled down her
cheeks, and rested on the fair face. of _ the
child, like dew drops in the petals of some
When Willie awoke an hour or two after,
he found his mother's cheek pressed closely
to his, but it was cold as marble. "Are you
very cold, mother," asked the child, but he
received no answer, and was frightened at
the echo of his voice from those rude walls.
She sleeps, thought Willie, and I will not
wake her; but I wish we had some fire to
warm us, and then she would wake, and
speak to me. Alas ! child, she sleeps—but
it is that sleep which knows no wakening.
Willie had bright dreams that night, and
when he awoke—it was in heaven.
Early the next morning the family of Mr.
Melville were seated at breakfast. "Laura,
do you remember the widow Grey whom I
sometimes met here—l believe she sowed
for you. did she not ?"
"Well," resumed Mr. Melville, "both she
and the child were found this morning, dead
—starved and frozen to death l" Laura's
cheek grew pale at this announcement, for,
although she felt the wrong she had com
mitted in turning from the voice of charity,
she had naturally a warm heart, and bitter
was the fruit reaped from her thoughtless
pride and carelessness. "God knows I nev
er dreamed of their being thus destitute ;
but why did she not make known her situa
tion." Laura dared' not tell how she had
come late the preceding night, but was sent
away with her prayer unheard. That af
ternoon, at Laura's earnest entreaty, the
bodies of Mrs. Grey and her child were de
cently interred in the beautiful burial place
of the Melville family, a few miles from the
city, and when spring came again with her
garlands of sweet flowers might sometimes
be seen a fair form bending over the graves
of the widow and her son.
Nen as they are.
There aro two classes of men in this
world, the desponding and the hopeful. The
one never gets along to his own satisfaction,
and the other is always sailing before a fair
wind. I f you look at the result of their ex
ertions, you will generally find that in point
of substantial 'success they have realized the
same amount in the end, with the exception
that the' hopeful man h.n appareOily made
his way throne!) the rough paths of life over
o rftaatclemizeil road, while the desponding
man has been stumping his toes and stumb-
Hog at every step. We never could con
ceive why a man should strive to make him
self, continually miserable by painting every
thing within his reach with the, artistical
brush of his imagination with the gloomiest
colors.. "The ills which flesh is heir to"
arc enough one would think, to meet 'and
combat against, but not content with them,
the desponding man creates ruble in ad
vance and pays interest on them until they
vanish like every other illusion of the brain.
There is no difficulty which, if promptly
and energetically met will not melt away as
the mist before the morning sun. But the
desponding man invests it with terrible pre
monitions and works himself into the belief,
that it will break upon him with the desolat
ing force of the aValatich. How different is
with the hopeful [natl. His btyant

One Reuben Rouzy, of
the General about one thousand pounds:,
While he was President one of his agents
brought an action for the money; judgment
was obtained and execution issued against
the body of the defendant, who was taken to
jail. lie had considerable land estate, but
this kind of property cannot be sold in Vir.
gina, unless at the discretion of the person.
He had a large family, and for the sake of his
children, preferred lying in jail to selling his
land. A friend-hinted to him, that General
Washington did not know anything of the
proceedings and that it might be well to send
him a petition with a statement of the cir
cumstances. He did so—and the next post
from Philadelphia, after the arrival of' his
petition in that city, brought him an order
for his immediate release, together with a
full discharge and a severe reprimand to the
agent, for having acted in such a manner.
Poor Rouzy was consequently •restored to
his family, who never laid down their heads
at night without first presenting prayers, to
heaven for "their beloved Washington ;'r
'Providence-smiled upon the labors of grate
ful family; and in a few years, Rouzy enjoy
ed the exquisit pleasure of being able to pay
the money, with the interest, to this truly
great man. Washington reminded him that
the debt was discharged. Rouzy replied
the debt of his family to the father of their
country, and the preserver of their parent,
could never be discharged, and the General
to avoid the pleasing opportunity of the
grateful Virginian, who would not be deni
ed, accepted the money—only however, to
divide it among Rouzy's children, which he

We were a good deal amused at an anec

preacher whose calling confined him within
the limits of old Kentucky. He had preach.

run short of the eloquence so much needed
to keep his hearers awake and astonished.

no difference, they had got used to him and
used to sleeping; and sleep they would to
his great annoyance. At last he hit upon an
expedient to bring 'ern standing, as the say
ing is. He procured a small tin whistle,
which he took with him into the pulpit, and
after taking his text and "blazing away"
until his lungs were sore and hie hearers all
comfortably dozing and nodding approval to
each other, he suddenly drew it forth and
gave a shrill toot-a-toot. In an instant the
whole congregation was awake and upon
the.feet, staring at the minister, at each
other, and wondering what in the name tf
pickles and human nature, as Sam stick says,
was to come next. "You're a set of smart
specimen, of humanity, ain't you ?" said
the divine whistler, as his slowly gazed
around on his astonished assemblage.—
