Spring is Coming
BY DB, J. nAYr.S,
Yc. tho tluo eyed Spring is coming,
From tie balmy, sunny south ;
Sco her sporting, skipping, running
Songs of joy are in her mouth !
Sco her roll old Winter's carpet.
Whito and fleecy, o'er tho plain ;
Dowii the mountains, sec her roll it,
To its frigid goal again.

Milt,, H W &W.K CREABV,
In o beautiful but sequestered valley,
and a short distnnco from tho sloping mar
gin nf ono of those placid streams which
beautify and fertilize our country, itoid a
little cottage, almost hidden by tho shrub
bery in which it was embowered. The
dwelling, humble as it was, resembled a
diamond encircled with cmoralda, as the
reflection of tho last golden rays of the
Betting sun was scut brightly back from tho
eaBcments upon the grass-carpeted lawn
and tall lilac bushes. To the north rose a
mountain, exhibiting nil the hues peculiar
to an American autumn, boyond this
towered a chain, so distant ns (o resemble
a wreath nf vapor losing itself in tho mi-ty
blue of tho horizon. On the opposite
snore ot tno river stretcuou an immense
tract of prairio laud, whoso soft green
afforded a pleasant relief to the sombre
shade of tho mountain. It was a lovely
spot, one on which Nature had tbowcrcd
her gifts with a lavish hand at loast bo
thought the two individuals who wcro en
joying its beauties from tho vino covered
porch of tho cottage.
Ellen Osgood was the delight of he
father's house. Her merry smilo was ever
successful in driving every mark of care
from his brow or depressing thought from
his mind. She wns a pure, disinterested
creature, whoso only aim was to lighte
the oarcs of thoso among whom her lot
castj and admirably sho succeeded, for
her home was rendered as bright nnd
cheerful as though sorrow existed but in
fancy, and had never cast a blight upm
Uio fair prospects of the inhabitants
earth, Alas, that so lovely a scene should
bo marred by the hand of tho spoiler 1
Henry Elton was tho accepted lover of
Ellen. Ho was a young physician who
liad just left college, where ho had been a
general favorite, and perhaps it was owing
to this that his moral character had bo
como somewhat unsettled for, in trjing
to please all, lie was obliged to assimilato
himself in some degree with tho habits of
thoso with whom ho associated, and il is a
fact long sinco established, that all are not
purely moral in theso institutions. His
manners wcro pleasing, and ho possessed
conversational powers of tho highest order.
He was engaged at tho time our talo com
mences, in pleading with Ellen to shorten
tho period of their engagement, and, from
tho gratified expression of his haudsomo
faco, a spectator might havo inferred that
his ploa was successful. Tho preparations
for tho approaching wedding wcro rapidly
progressing, when, ono day a3 Ellen Iras
seated at licr worlt near an open window,
but concealed by a luxuriant honoysucklo
that shaded it, sho heard Ctcsar, an old
servant, say tosomo ono beneath: ''Wat a
nico gemmau Massa JJnrry is. Pity ho
drinks so much, but dou its do only fault
ho has."
Tho color loft her chook. Could it bo
that her Loan's idolwas a druukard? She
est indiscretion. The breath ot suspioion
bad never infused a doubt of his innoocney
into her mind, and ho bad doomed him
abovo the foul aspersions of slander. How
could she solvo her doubts t Sto could
not ask a servant if her betrothed was un
worthy, and, as Elton was absent dn a visit
to one of his college friends, sho had no
opportunity of observing his condtjet. Sho
tried . lo banish it from her thoughts, but
tho imago of a drunken husband was con
stantly recurring to bcrjmind.
About a week after, whilo on a visit to
hor cousin, Isabella Welding, who resided
in a neighboring towr. the unexpectedly
met him in ono of tho frost public streets,
where he with sovoral otters was discussing
politics rather more louily than tho occa
sion warranted. Ilo immediately joined
them, and Ellen obscricd that his faco
was slightly flushed. This was almost
sufficient to corroborate! hor former suspi
cious. At any other ti ic sho would not
havo remarked so common an occurrence;
but, now that ono painful thought com
pletely absorbed her mind,icr perceptions
had acquired an unnatural quickness, and
sho gathered food for her troubled spirit
from tho most trifling circunstanco.
In a few days, the cloud lhat rested over
her happiness was diepellcd. Elton bad
been her nltnost constant coupanion during
that time, nnd his beaming glance of lovo
had gone as far as his rcpcLtcd assurances
in convincing her of bis innoconco. Ono
evening her father came in.
"Well, Ellen," said ho, "aro you willing
to leave .this pleasant villago for your
country home to-morrow 1"
She expressed her readiness, though not
ithout somo reluctance at leaving her
lover. Her arrangements wcro accordingly
made, but her aunt who had felt unwell all
day, became very ill during tho night, and
they were obliged to remain.
and your voncrated father for my guido,
wo will have nothing to fear."
Ellen was softened, but sho had often
heard that intemperance was an almost
incurablo moral malady, and this thought
ctccled hor heart against his eloquence,
and saved hor from that most awful fate
a drunkard's wifo. With her eyes blindod
in tears, she extended hor hand, and with
a choked uttcranco, exclaimed, " Farewell,
may God bless you, and cnablo you to
conquer your imphoablo foo." Elton left

During tho year 1814. while tho allied
arraios were concentrated about Paris, the
following remarkable incident, posiossing
all tho interest of romance; occurred. It
is strictly true, and the parties aro still

stillness which reigned throughout the
partment was broken only by tho vibra
tions of a small mantel clock which stood
opposito tho bed, and an occasional moan
from tho sufferer. Isabella was sitting
near her mother's bed, watching tho almost
impcrocptible motion of tho thin covering
as it rose and fell to her gentle breathing.

Sho siid nothing, for sho saw that Isabella
