When the shatroWs dim l only, -
And the firii.dy light!' h . ,
And tho seining abuli.th4 &rem
With her lingers, slight aridilamp,
From the bright blue skies above me,
On a path of rosy light,
One who lived but to love me,
Comes in silence every night.
Then I walk in dreams elysian
Fmni the jarring world aside,
With the pale and beauteous vision,
Like a lover with his birds,
Feeling, when she sits beside me,
With her thin hands meekly crossed,
Though no more her counsels guide me,
She is gone, but is not lost!
Spring in roses was apparelled.
All her fringes green and deep,
And the birds *round her carolled,
As she softly fill indeep:
Then the sweetest tie was riven
That two spirits could unite,
Though she passed the grave to heaven,.
Leaving all its shadows bright.
In the town o f—, ( no matter where,)
there circulated two local newspapers, (no
matter when.) Now the "Flying Post"
was long establiidied and respectable—nli
as bigoted and Tory ; the "Examiner"
was spirited and intelligent, alias now-fan
gled and Democratic. Every week these
newspapers contained , articles abusing
each other ; as crowned peppery as arti
cles could he. and evidently the produc
tion of irritated minds, although they seem
ed to have one stereotyped commence
ment. " Thw the article appearing in last
week's , Post,' (or 'Examiner,') is below
vontempt, yet we have been induced,"
Sc ; and every -SatOrday the radical Shop.:
keepers shook hands together and agreed
that the "Post" was dune for, by the
slashing clever "Examiner ; " while the
more dignified Tories began by regretting
that Johnson should think that low paper,
only read by a few of the vulgar, worth
wasting his wit upon. However, the
" Examiner" was at its last gasp.
It was not, though. It lived and flour
ished ; at least it paid its way, as one of
the heroes of my story could tell. Ile
was chief compositor, or whatever title
may be given to the head of the mechani
cal part of a newspaper. Ile hardly con
fined himself to that department. Once or
Mire, unknown to the editor, when the
manuscript had fallen short, he had filled
up the vacant space by compositions of his
own ; announcements of a forthcoming
crop of green peas in December ; a grey
thrush having been seen, or a white hare,
or such interesting phenomena, invented
for the occasion, I must confess, but what
of that ? His wife always knew when to
expect a little specimen of her husband's
literary talent by a peculiar cough, which
served as a prelude; and, judging from
this encouraging sign, and the high•pitch
eJ and emphatic vote,: in which he read
read them, she was inclined to think, that
an •• Ode to an early Rose Bud," in the
corner devoted to original poetry, and a
letter in the correspondence department,
.igned Pro Bono Publico," were her
hithand's writing, and to hold up her head
/ never could find out what it was that
oocasioned the Johnsons to lodge with the
Jenkinses. Jenkins held the same office
in a tory paper, as Johnson did in the "Ex
aminer," and as I said before. I leave you
to give it a name. But Jenkins had a pro
per sense of his position. and a proper re
verence fur all in authority, from the King
down hi editor, and sub-editor. Ile would
as soon have thought of borrowing the
King's crown for a night-cap, or the King's
sceptre for a walking-stick, as he would
have thought of filling up any square cor
ner with arty production of hits own ; and
I think it would have even added to his
emiteligit of Johnson, (if that were possi
ble.) had lie known of the productions of
his brain, as the latter fondly alluded to
the paragraphs lie inserted, when speak
ing to his wife.
Jenkins had his wife ton. Wives were
wanting to finish the completeness of the
quarrel, which existed one memorable
Christmas week, some dozen years ago,
between the two neighbors, the two com
positors. And with wives it was a very
pretty, a very complete quarrel. To make
the opposing parties still more equal, still
more well-matched, if the Johnson. had a
baby, (such a baby ! a poor, puny little
thing,) Mrs. Jenkins had a eat, (such a
cat ! a great, nasty, meow ling tom-cat, that
was stealing the milk .put by fur little an
gel's supper.) And now, having matched
Greek with Greek, I must proceed to the
tug of war. It wairthe day before Christ

people's faces. as they were driven out
more than usual, to complete their pnrcha

GETTYSBUR,G, PA. FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER,p,.,,IB4I3.
And oft he went to work
Now, it was a gond While since Mrs.
Jenkins and Mrs. Johnson had spoken to
each other, although they we re quite as
• much in possession of the knowledgeofeatth
other's events and opinions as though they
did. Mary knew that Mrs. Jenkins des
pised her for not having a real lace cap,
which Mrs. Jenkins had ; and for having
bean a servant, which Mrs. Jenkins had not;
and the little occasional pinching which
the Johnson. were obliged to resort to, to
make both ends meet, would have been
very patiently endured by Mary',, if she
had not winced under Mrs. Jenkins know
ledge of such economy. But she had her
revenge. She had a child, and Mrs. Jen
kins had none. To have had a child, e
ven such a puny baby a. little Tom, Mrs.
Jenkins would have worn commonest
caps, and cleaned grates, and drtidged her
fingers to the hone. The great unspoken
disappointment of her life soured her tem
per. and turned her thoughts inward, and
made her morbid and selfish.
" Hang that cat ! he's been stealing a
gain ! he's Itnawed the cold mutton in his
misty mouth till it's not fit to set before a
christian ; and I've nothing else for Jem's
dinner. But I'll give it him, now I've
caught him, that 1 will !'
So saying, Mary Johnson caught up her
husband's Sunday cane, and despite pus
sy's cries and scratches, she gave him such
a beating as she hoped might: cure him of
his theivish propensities ; when In !-and
behold Mrs. Jenkins stood at the door,
with a face of bitter wrath.
" Aren't you ashamed of yourself, ma'- '
am, to abuse a poor dumb animal; ma'am,
as knows no bever as to take food' when
he sees it, ma'am. He only follows the
nature which Clod has given, ma'am ; and
it's a pity yuur nature, ma'am, which I've
heard is of the stingy saving species, does
not make you shut your cupboard door a
little closer. There is such a thing as law
for brute animals. I'll ask Mr. Jenkins ;
but I don't, think them Radicals. has done
away with that law ym,,for all ,their lie,
form my pour precious love
of a Tommy, is he hurt ?—and is his leg
broke for taking a mouthful of scraps, as
moat people would give away to a beggar
—if he'd take 'em," wound up Mrs. Jen
kins, giving a contemptuous look on the
remnant of a scrag end of mutton.
Mary felt very angry and very guilty.
For she really pitied the poor limping an
imal, as he crept up to his mistress, and
there lay down to beMoan himself ; she
wished she hail not beaten him so hard,
for it was certainly her own careless way
of never shutting, the cupboard door that
had tempted him to his fault. But the
sneer at her little hit of mutton turned her
penitence to fresh wrath, and she shut the
door in Mrs. Jenkins face, as she stood
caressing her eat in the lobby, with such
a bang, that it awakened little Tom, and
he began to cry.
Everything was to go wrong with Mary
to-day. Now, baby was awake, who was

tried to hush hint off to sleep again ; and
as she sting she cried, she could hardly
tell why—a sort of recreation from her vio

never beaten the poor cat ; she wonifered
if his leg was really broken. What would
her mother say, if she knew how cross and
cruel little Mary was getting I Ifsheshould

It was no use lullabying while she sob- ,
bed so ; it must be given up, and she must
just carry her baby in her arms, and take
him with her to the office, for it was long
past dinner time. So she pared the mut
ton carefully, although by so doing shore
dueed the meat to an infinitesimal quanti
ty, and taking the baked potatoes out of the
oven, she popped them piping hot into her
basket, with the etceteras of plate, butter,
salt, and knife and fork.
It was, indeed a bitter wind. She bent
against it as she ran, and the flakes of
snow were sharp and cutting as ire.

him up in her shawl. Then her husband
had made up his appetite for a potatoe pie,
and (literary man as he a aS) his body gat
so much the better of his mind, that lie ,
looked rather black at the cold in II non.---1
Mary had no appetite for her own dinner
when she arrived home again: So- after
she had tried to feed the baby, and he had'
fretfully refused to take his bread and
milk, she laid him down as usual on his
quilt. surrounded by playthings, while
she elided away and chopped suet for the
next day's pudding. Early in ; the after.,:
noon, a parcel came, done dh first in broWR

mingled in her statement some of a child's
love of producing an effect.; but the in
creasing danger was clear enough.
" Oh, my baby ! my,, baby ! Oh, love !

Through her streaming tears, Mary mo
tioned her to go; knd trembling, sinking,
sick at heart, she laid her boy in his cra

home, having told him-her awry of pus

dignifiedly (f) indignant, nay Mg it was
All of a piece with that abusive “Examin

turkey, and mince-pies, vhich her hus
band had ordered; and cleaned up the
room, and prepared everything for tea,
and coaxed and duly bemoaned her cat,
(which had pretty nearly forgotten its
beating, but very much enjoyed the pet
ting ;) having done all these, and many
other things, Mrs. Jenkins sat down to get
up the real lace cap. Every thread was
pulled out separately, and carefully stretch
ed ; when, what was that ; Outside, in
the street, "a chorus of piping children's
voices sang the old carol she had heard a
hundred times in her youth.

She got up and went to the window.—

which now enveloped everything.. " For

counted out a half penny a piece for the
singers, out of the copper bag, and threw
it down below.
The room had become chilly while she
had been counting out sod throwing down ,
her money, so she stirred her already glow-I
