"Throw op the window! 'Tie a morn fur life
In its most subtle luxury. The air
Is like-a breathing from a rarer world:-
And the south wind is like • gentle friend,
Parting the halt so softly on my brow.
It has eonwfover gardens, and'the flowers
That kissed it era betrayed ; for u it parts,
With itstinvisible fingers, my loose hair,
I know it has been trifling with the rose
And stooping to the violet. There i■ joy

Are stirring at its touch, and birds are singing
As if to breaths were music, and the grass
Sends up its modest odor with the dew
Like the small tribute of humility."

The delicious morning which is glowing
around me, and which has recalled the ex
quisite description of ourgifted countryman,
brings also to my mind the recollection of
one as fresh and beautiful, "in the days
that are gone." I well remember how the
sense of that morn's exceeding , loylinesa..
burdened my heart with a sweet weight,
—and how, at last, flinging aside the dull
book which 1 had been attempting to study,
I caught up my light sun-bonnet, and
bounded out of the house, which outward
bloom and beauty had rendered prison-like.
I then turned my steps towards a fine old
mansion, the home of a very lovely girl,
who had been endeared to me by years of
constant and intimate intercourse. Of late
there had been formed a new tie to bind
our hearts—she had become the betrothed
of "one of ours," a favorite cousin, and
the engagement was a joyful event to all

And all its waving curls of gold,"—
with thine eyes of softest violet, and thy

Moore, was an exalted, yet a most loveable
character, an embodiment of intellect, man

it, and our sewing circle gossipped about
the matter, for a month or two, and then
the ruffled tide of our village flowed on as
usual. But I was on my way to pay An

he was to be absent for many months, and

The en miner passed—a season of earn

young student, and of patient, hopeful, and
sustaining love, on the part of his betrothed.
Then came the chill of autilmn, followed
by a winter of uncommon severity. Our
dear Annie, while on a night visit to a dy
ing friend, was exposed to a sudden and fear
ful storm--took ,cold—ah, doe* not my

Her mother and elder sister had died of

of death was on her blue.veined brow, and, 1

the hollow cough which, shook her fragile
frame. We knew that she must die,. and

had suffered much that day. and as he
thought how very near might be the dark
wing of God's dread angel, he took her
wasted hand in his, and said— , • •
"Oh. my Annie, let me call you wife,
before you leave me. You would not be
.so utterly lost to me then, for 1 would know
you bearing that sacred name in Heaven.

not be my husband ; hear me, dearest, you
must no longer be near me—your love is

With heroic and martyr-like firmness
spoke the mistaken girl—mistaken, for a
pure love for one worthy, is the holiest
and sweetest reparation for His presence
who "is love."
William Gordon saw her firmness, and
she was weak and trembling from the ex
citement of the scene, and
does heart shutting up his pain,"
resolved to yield instant and uncomplain
ing obedience to her wishes. He rose-up
calmly, and imprintihg on her forehead a
kiss-of mingled love and anguish, turned
and was gone I Annie buried her face in
her thin, white hands, and remained in an
agony of prayer and grief. Then came
vague regrets for the course she had taken,
and painful doubts of the necessity of •tha
sacrifice she had made. Presently she ,
heard a well-known step—William had re
: turned! His calmness had forsaken him,
and he murmured imploringly—
"lf I must leave you to die alone. An-1
nie, let me fold you once more to my heart
before 1 go—it will give me strength."
He knelt on one knee beside her, reach
ed forth his arms...and sobbed like a child,
while she leaned upon his bosom. .
No word was spoken by that pair, loving
j and faithful unto death, while the flood of
sorrow swept over their hushed spirits, as
if the fountains of the soul's great deep
were broken up. Yes, silent, but not tear
less, knelt William Gordon, with his lips
pressed against the dear hand that lay upon
his heart. At last he raised his eyes hea
venward and those lips moved in whisper
ed prayer—he unwound his arms and
would have risen, but Annie moved not—
she was dinging to his breast ! A smile
of joy irradiated his face, and his arms
once again enfolded her. She looked up
and murmured with something of her old
playful tenderness, more touching than time
wildest buret of grief:
"Are you not stronger, dear William ?"
h, I fear not, my love."
"This is strange, for when I felt the
strength ebbing from my own heart, I
thought it had flowed into yours."
"Thank God for the weakness which is
lovelier than strength ! I must never leave

The morning of the wedding day had

bridal dress, a beautiful muslin, guiltless of
ribbon or lace. I wished to twine in her
• hair a small string of pearls, which was
once her mother's,—but she gently put it

"None," she replied, "but ye a , if you

never have I beheld one so exquisitely, so
wonderfully beautiful, as that dying girl,

floral ornament, the dewy lustre of her soft
blue eye, and the deepened hectic of her,

to be performed, she wished to rise, and
as she was too weak to stand alone, I stood
by her side, and supported her. She smiled

ANECDOT6 Or JOHN QUINCY ADAMS.-
He always dared to do right, or what he
thought to be right. When minister at
the Netherlands,and comparatively ayouth,
he was invited to join the niersl ambas
sadors of different nations at that Court,
in a gathering for social enjoyment, in
which cheerful conversation, and gaming
for amusement, we believe, bore a part.
Once they adjourned to a Sabbath evening.
The time came, and the rnhassadors col
lected ; but the American Minister was
missing. It occasioned -inquiry and dis
appointment ; but presuming some special
or invincible object prevented his atten
dance, they said little of the circumstance,
and adjourned again to Sabbath evening.—
But the American ambassador did not at
tend. The next meeting was on a week
day evening, and the American was in his
place. They were glad to see him, and sig
nified their disappointment at his previous
absences. Instead of an apology or assign
' ing a fictitious reason, he frankly stated to
them, that his principles would not allow
lam thus to employ any part of the Sab
bath. He was born in a country settled
by Puritans, of Puritan parents, who re
garded the Sabbath as a divine ordinance.
Ile had witnessed the good influence of
its religious obseivanee in the greater intel
ligence, the pure morals, the energy, the
enterprise, and orderly habits of his coun
trymen. As a friend of his country, there
fore, he could not pervert the day, or use
it fur other purposes than those to which
he had been taught to devote it, and
seen it devoted—in whatever part of the
world he might be, or by whatever differ
ent customs surrounded !
Now, to those who know the "sneering"
character of most Sabbath-breakers, and
think of the age, high rank, and splendor
of those men, in connection with the youth
of Adams, it would be difficult to name an
instance of moral courage superior to this.
And, it completely overawed hie distin
ugished companions, and by instant and
general consent they met no more on Sab
Thislnecdote we have not derived from
any written reminiscences of Mr. Adanis.
We received it from an American sense
years ago, who has few superiors as to his
knowledge of both the written and tradi
tional history of his country, and indeed
of the world, and of the characters who
have figured in it.—Chrialian Mirror.

to offer the last office of religion to his• King.
At midnight the King retired to bed, and
