THEOUGH A WINDOW.
I lie here at rest in mj chamber,
And look through a window again.
With eyes that are changed since the old time,
And the sting of an exquisite pain.
lis not much that I see for a picture,
Through bows which are green with the
An old barn with its roof gray and mossy,
And abore it a bird on the wing.
Or, lifting my bead a thought higher,
Some bills and a village I know.
And over it all the blue heaven,
With a white cloud floating below.
In the old dy the roof seemed a priion,
My mind and the sky were free.
My thoughts with the birds went flying,
And my hopes were a heaven to me
Sow I come from the limitless distance
Where I followed my jouth's wild will,
Where they press the wine ef delusion
That yon drink and are thirsty still:
And I know why the bird with the Spring
time To the gnarled old tree comes back
He has tritd the South and the Summer,
lie has felt what the sweet things lack.
Sol come with a sad contentment,
- With eyes that are changed I see :
The roof means peaco, cot a prison.
And heaven smiles down on me.
DAVE PEAES0JT8 OOUETSHIP.
"I tell you, Dave Pearson, you shall nev
er call mc life!" .
And as these words were uttered, Dave
Pearson gave vent to a little chuckle, took
a huge quid from a capacious box, and
gazed thoughtfully from his cottage window
upon the craft thut was floating past upon
the Metetceunk river.
I, the writer of this bketcli, was spending
a few weeks in New Jersey, wild-fowl shoot
ing along the shores of Siiuan, Barnegat,
and in and about Little Eg Harbor Bay.
Dare Pearson had been icy mentor and
Loatuian. On our return one evening from
a long and unusually successful day's sport,
which had put Dave in an unconsciously
good humor, he related to me the following
story of his courtship ; how he came to do
so was in this wise ;
We had had our supper, and, with "jest a
drop of so' thing to keep out the cold," we
sat down to spend the evening, with my
lips, and Dave with his inevitable tobacco
box, as he never, under any circumstances,
used the "divine weed," as somebody calls
it, in any other shape than a chew. Just
as his wife was leaving the room with the
remains of onr meal, and to wash the dish
es in the kitchen, I being an honored
guest, I was assigned the parlor casually
remarked, "That's a hard-working wife of
"Yes," said Dave, gravely stroking his
chin, with a gratified smile upon hh honest
countenance ; "and jest as good as she is
hard-working. Do you know I came near
not marrying her once ?"
"You don't tell me ! llowjwas that,
"Well, as you're a pretty good soit of a
fellow, and as the old woman won't get
through fixing up for some time, I don't
mind telling you; lut Le careful never to
mention a word to her, as she kind o' dis
likes to hear about it."
I readily gave the promise, and Dave
again having resort to his box, placed both
arms upon the table, and commenced.
"When I was a young fellow it was
along among the '40's, then I did what
most young fellows do I foil in love. And,
of course, like all young fellows in the same
condition, at one time I was as happy as
they say a clam is at high water, and at an
other, as miserable as a sick rooster on a
' But that's neither here nor there ; the
gal I was in love with was named Esther
Hettrick. That's her," and Dave jerked his
head in the direction of the kitchen.
I nodded understandingly.
"Well, you see, I was mighty poor in
those days, that is, I was nothing but a
hired hand ; but if I was mighty poor, I
was working mighty hard, and saving every
pinny 1 could earn, so as to be able to buy
a boat of my own, and furnish a little cabin
on shore, in order to make myself master of
the one, and make Esther mistress of the
"And you succeeded, I have no doubt,"
"Hold on,' boss not so fast 1 If I'm tell
ing this story, I have to tell it in my own
I mumbled something about sorrow, and
Dave continued ; '
"Old Obadiah Hettrick he was Esther's
father was a pretty 'cute chap, for a fish
eruian: had a boat of his own, a snug farm,
besides a comfortable sum in the bank.
Lor bless you ! I never dreamed of ownin'
as much as old Obey did ; but I tell you,
sir, time makes a great many changes,."
Dave, as he said th'S glanced complacent
ly round the room.
"Now, Obadiah was not a bad sort of a
fellow; one of the easy going sort of folks,
you know ; but his wife, Abigail, she was a
"Ruled the roost, eh ?'
Dave gave mc a wink that expressed vol
umes, and resumed :
"Sho was down on mc, sho was; could
never abide me near the house, and I do
verily believe she thought me one of the
wickedest chaps in all Ocean county. But
I didn't mind that much, for Esther had
told me, over and over again, that she loved
me, and the old man, Obadiah, had said,
'"Veil, Dave, when you've got a boat of
"your own, and want to take my gal, I shall
say nary a word against it." " .
"Then all things, so far, were satisfac
tory?" "Yes, so far. But there was one thing
that was anything but satisfactory, and that
was in the shape of Abner Sandford. Not
that Abner was. a bad sort of a fellow : for
1 half believed then, and know now, that
he was a good, strong, generous hearted fel
low, and as brave as steel. But what I
didn't like, was his visiting the house of
old Obadiah. and always being made wel
come by Esther's t mother, while I was
scowled at if I came within forty rod of the
"Ah !" I said, filling another pipe ; "a
slight twinge of jealousy, I perceive?"
"Well," replied Dave, with a comical
grin, "I guess that's what you may call it.
And, such being the case, it is not to be
wondered at that Esther and myself had
many a spat about this Abner. I well re
member the time when we had quite a se
vere quarrel that is, for sweethearts about
this self-same Abner. It was on Squan
Beach ; I was sitting on a boat, mending a
net, when Esther came along, looking just
as Fpick and span as a newly painted schoon
er ; and I thought I never saw her looking
prettier in all my life. But, somehow or
other, there's a something in the menditlg
of nets that makes a man think, and I had
been brooding over Abner, till I was gloomy
and savage as a uieat axe. 'Dear Dave,'
Esther said, 'I am so glad to see you! I've
been to Martha Swain's with some egsjs
you know, she is so sick ; so I thought I
would come round this way home, and sec
"Which, of course, brightened and clear
ed you immediate y?"
"I kind o' think it did a litt'e ; but then
you see, when a man is determined not to
be pleased, it is pretty hard to please him.
I auswered gruffly that Martha Swain was
nothing to mo and maybe if she wasn't a
sort o' relation of Abner Sanfor J's, she
wouldn't bo thought so much of. I knew
it was a lie when I said it, and Esther col
ored upalLtle; but I went on, getting
more and more excited as I continued, till I
finally told her she thought mire of Abner
than she did of me."
"All true lovers are fools," I said, sen
tentiously. Having never boon in love my
self, of course 1 was well qualified to judge.
"I guess you are a boot right there, sir.
When I said Abuer was thought more of
than me, she gave me Mich a look, and
went off proud as auy queen ; not that I
have ever seen a queen, but you know what
I luoan. "'
1 nodded assent.
'"Of course we made it up again, and
went on loving one another, more, if possi
ble than ever before. Between you and me,'
and here Dave lowered his voice to an im
pressible whisper, "this falling out and ma
king up'again is one of the chief pleasures
of love making."
"There's no accounting for tastes," re
"Well, to mnke a long story short, I at
last saved money enough to buy a boat, and
became owner of the Sparkling Foam ; and
what was more, everything having been Bel
lied, I was to be' married to Esther in two
months from that time."
"So the old lady, Mrs. Hettrick, bad
come round ?"
"Not much. She saw that things
couldn't bo helped, so she kind o' put the
best face on the matter, more especially as
Esther generally had her own way in the
long ron ; but you had better believe there
was no love lost between us. And it's my
private opinion ia fact, I know it to have
been so now she led Obadiah a deuce of a
life, for ever having given me a kind'y word
of encouragement or advice."
"But that didn't trouble you much !"
"I don't know about that. You see, I
am a sort o' straight up and-down fellow, I
am, and when I don't like anybody, I must
show it. I tried hard to be civil and polite
to the old woman, but juU a streak o' ugli
ness would show itself now and then.
Esther often spoke to me about it, and beg
ged me to be kinder to her mother, remind
ing me that it was her mother I was cross
to, and that a cruel word hurt her more
than it did her mother."
"And j our promise was never withheld,"
"Right you are, my boy. Just about
this time I had to run up to York with a
cargo, so, bidding good bye to Esther, and
promising to return in a few days, 'I sailed,
and I sailed,' as the song says. You know
the old saying about men undertaking to do
a thing, and God putting a stop to it ; well
it was so in mv case. When I got to York,
and had unloaded, I got a chance to run up
to Newburg with another cargo. Money
being what I wanted, and this giving me
the opportunity of making some, 1 accept
ed it. I lost no time, you can bet your bot
tom dollar on that ; but by the time I had
returned to York with a load of bricks,
this time it was quite four weeks before I
again entered the Manasquan Inlet."
"And during this time your true love was
wandering by the sad sea waves all alone."
Dave paid no attention to my remark, but
continued : i '
"As soon as I fixed my boat all snug, and
had anchored her securely, I made my way
as quickly as possible to Esther's house, in
tending to tell her of the good fortune I had
had since I had been away, and bexhappy
over it together. As I walked up the road,
I saw Esther standing at the gate, and my
heart gave a great bound of delight; but
what struck me as strange for I knew she
saw me she made no . movement to come
asd meet me. Approaching rearer, I saw
she was dressed in black, and being startled,
" 'Why, Esther, darling, vrhat is the
" 'So, Dave Pearson, you have come at
last !' was all the answer she gave me.
"'Come at last 1' I said; "and why
shouldn't I come? What is the meaning
of that black dress?'
"I soon understood it. Darin? my ab
sence her mother had died, and she thought
I had kept away from the funcrtl on ac
count of my dislike for her.
" 'If you,' said Esther, her eyes flashing,
'had uo respect for my poor mother, you
might have bhown some for me.
"It was no use my telling her I had heard
not a word about it. At this I got mad,
like a great fool; for my experience tells
me it is never any good arguing with a wo
man. When two people are mad and quar
reling, you know, they don't say exactly
what they thick. I suppose I said many
things I ought not to have done, when, all
of a sudden, Esther clenched her fist, aud
brought it down violently upon the gate
post for though she favored her fathcr.she
still had a spice of her mother in her and
" 'I tell you, Dave Pearson, you shall
never call me wire!"
"With this she turned round, and walked
up the garden path toward the house.
My heart relented ; I opened the gate, and
followed, calling upon her to hear me ex
plain. She paid not the !eat attention, en I
tered the door, gave me a look, that I don't
like to think of even now, and she slammed
it in my face." j
Dave refreshed himself with a glass of j
apple-jack, and continued :
"Well, that got my dander up, so I jest
turned round an 1 walked away, vowing ven
geance against all womankind, and Esther
in particular. I swore in my rage, that I
would never go near her house again, and
that I would kill Abner Sanford the first
opportunity, for somehow or other, I laid
all the blame on him, and hugged in the
belief to my heart that he had been puis-1
onijg Esther's mind against me."
"Which was a very sensible thing to d,"
said 1, knockiug the ashes out of my pipe, ;
and refilling it.
"I neglected my work, and I didn't care
a darn whether school kept or not, and kept
on drinking more thaa was good for mc.
The Sparkling Foam lay idle at her moor-
ings, and both me and my belongings were
going to rust and decay. I tried to pick a
fuss with Abner ; but he told me plainly
that he was sorry for mc, aud would not
quarrel with a man in misfortune." (
"A. tungnauiuiuus feltuw t " 1 exclaimed.
"There came a Sunday, I remeiuber one
of those cold, leaden kind of days, you of
ten see at the commencement of winter,
when everything looks dull and grey, and
objects, both ou ocean and shore, oppress
you with a sense of great desolation. Such
a day, I need not tell you, did not make me
feel particularly cheerful, so, to pluck up
my spirits and drowu care, I flew to that
which, like fire, is a very good servant, but
a bad master."
Dave gave the bottle a little fillip with
his thumb and forefinger, and resumed :
"As I was wandering about the- village,
nursing my wrath and hatred against all
mankind, who should I see but Esther re
turning from , church, with Abucr walking
by her side ! That was enough. A feeling
that has long been slumbering in my breast
awoke with renewed energy, and my whole
nature was filled with hate, revenge and
murder. I resolved to waylay Abuer on his
return, and kill him.
"Why, Dave," said I, "I had no idea
you were such a desperate fellow."
"I vatched them enter the house, and
then went to the back, where I knew old
Obadiah kept his nets, and, picking up the
handle of a broken oar, went down the roai
and waited. It was getting night now, and
the snow that had been threatening for some
time began falling very fast. The wind had
also risen, and it was blowing a perfect hur
ricane. The drifting and - blinding snow
prevented mv seeing the sea, but I knew
how angrj it was, for I heard it Ireakin
aud roaring on the beach with a fury that
threatened to swallow up the land. Though
I had murder in my heart, I pitied the poor
fellows olf the coast, and wished they had
plenty of sea-room, as the wind was blow
ing dead on shore."
Dave paused a moment, gave a sigh of
contrition, and then went on with his story.
"115 w loug I waited for Abner, I don't
know I had a sense of being bitter cold,
but if it had been ten times colder, my hate
would have kept me there till morning when
all of a sudden, I beard, nigh ou shore, the
boom of a cannon. I knew what that meant
some vessel in distress and it was fol
lowed by another and another in rapid suc
cession. In a moment Abner was forgotten,
and my only idea was to hurry to the beach,
and jive what aid I could to the vessel,
which, if not already on shore, would soon
be driven there by the wild, tempestuous
"When I arrived on the beach, I found
many there before me, all intent upon the
same errand as myself tor you must know
none of us lose much time in hastening to a
ship's cry of distress. We had no life boat
dowu on this part of the coast then, and
even if we had, it wouldn't have been of
much use. I have seen many a rough sea,
but that beat all I have ever seen. As the
waves rolled on the shore, they scooped deep
hollows in the sand, and went tearing and
tumbling back with a maddened fury that
"Old fishermen men who had never been
a day away from the sea in all their lives
shook their heads, and said that nolhing
could be done, the ship must be left to the
mercy of Providence. All this time, Done
had seen the vessel, for the falling snow
prevented objects fifty yards distance being
seen, yet the staady and incessant firing of
the cannon heard above the roaring of the
tempest told us of her deep and dire dis
"Women were wringing their bauds and
begging, against their own judgment (for
they knew as well as any, diow foolhardy
would be such an undertaking) the men, for
the sake of the mothers, sisters and wives
of those on board, to try and save them.
"At last they sent up a rocket, and an
other, and finally they lit a signal-light, and
by its glare we saw her.
"There she lay, not a biscuit's throw from
the shore, beam ends on, and the sea ma
king a clean breach over her. J ust at that
very moment, I heard an imploring voice,
close by my side, say, 'Abner, Abner, pray
do try and save them !'
"I turned quickly, and there stood Esther
aud Abner. j
"I didn't speak a word, and I don't know
what possessed me, but feeling came over
me that I'd have to reach that ship or die.
There were plenty of lines at hand,' so, ta
king one, and coiling it upon the beach, I
commenced to fasten it around my waist.
When it became known that I bad made up
my mind to go off, very one tried to dis
suade me from it, but it was of no use. I
don't believe there was anv nower on p.irtli
pthat could have prevented me from tryintr.
'It's sure death,' said one ; but I didn't care;
he would have had to use a stronger argu
ment than that to deter me then.
"When all was in readiness, and with a
lighter line attached to my writU I walked
toward the sea, and waited for a good op
portunity in a returning wave to make the
plunge. Tho opportunity soon came, but
at that instant Esther sprang forward, threw
her arms around mv neck, and entreated
me, in the name of the love I used to bear
her, not to go.
"That maddened me I don't know why,
but it did and I strove roughly to unclasp
bcr hands from about my neck. She only
clung the tighter, and, amid her tears and
sobs, called me her 'dear, dear Dave,' and
told me that she loved mc dearly.
" 'Love 1' I said, bitterly. 'Keep your
love for those that want it such as Abner
Sanford, there.'. .. ... :vl.-,-eT
"At these words, she loosed her arms.
turned on me a look of reproach, and fell
fainting on the sands. I gave one glance
at her, and then I was tattling with ths

terribly frost bitten and they do say that
was the man that did it. However, what
I know is, that when I came to kuow any
thing, I was- lying in bed, terribly stiff and
sore, with a big gash upon my forehead,
caused by being thrown violently against
"It was some days before I was able to
leave my bed, and when I did, an aroi-chaii
was rigged up withjillows, to make me easy
and comfortable ; for, I assure you, I was
just as sore all over as it's possible for a
man to be, and I could make no movement
"The second day I was up, 1 heard some
body enter the room ; but I paid no atten
tion, as I thought it was old Martha Swain,
who had come to nurse .me, when it was
found I was hurt, and had been with me
ever siuce, when I heard a voice say, 'Dave
Pearson will you speak to mc?'
"My heart gave a great jump, for I knew
it was Esther, and my joy was great, but
my foolish pride would not permit me to
own it ; so I growled out, like a great sav
age brute that I was, 'What do you want?'
"She came and stood in front of me ; I
never saw a woman so changed in all my
life ; she was pale and careworn, aud her
eyes were red as if from crying. My whole
soul yearned toward her, but my brutal ob
stinacy hept me silent, and I looked dogged
ly at her.
' 'Oh, Dave,' she sail, 'do, do forgive
me! You are good, kin J, generous, brave,
and I am but a poor, weak woman. You
little know how I love you, and how sore
it has made my heart to be bad friends with
you. I was wrong, Dave, dear Dave ! For
give mc ! Take me to your great loving
heart, and let me be to you as I once wa3.'
"I hardly know what I said in reply, but
I mumbled out something about Abner
Sanford, and she had better go to him for
"At these wards she gave a little cry of
pain, clasped her hands in anguish, and
said, 'Dave Pearson, you don't know what
you are doing ; you are breaking my heart.'
"She then turned toward the door, and I
heard her open it. I could stand it no Ion
ger ; I tried to follow her ; but, Lor' bless
you ! I couldn't f-tir, and, like a great baby.
I commenced to cry weakness made me do
that, I suppose and blubbered out the
word 'Esther !'
''In another instant she was in my arms,
and covering me with kisses. Hush ! here
she comes ; not a word to her, as she don't
like to have it spoken about."
At this juncture, Esther, with her bright.
pleasant face, entered the room, and said.
"Come, Dave, if you have to catch the first
tide in the morning, it is time you and the
gentleman weie in bed, for it is near ten
o'clock." - ....

Who can look back upon the -vanished
years without a sigh of regret for the many
beautiful remembered joys that the years
now vanished brought to us, but can never
return to us again?
To one, it is the memory of a child's ca
ressing fingers, straying over the face and
hands. Of clinging arms about the neck,
and the pattering of tiny slippered feet over
the stair or down the hall. It is the music
of a sweet innocent voice, floating in rip
pling laughter, or precious baby words from
the past along the vanished years into the
tide of the present.
To another, sweet, loved faces float sud
denly from the mist of the vanished years,
as if the daisies grew not between the closed
eyes aud our own, they meet us again with
the same never forgotten glance of tender
ness and we ask of the vanished years, if
they have given back to us cur own, or
whether the spirits of the air take form,
sometimes, only to vanish again, leaving us
only our memories. Half lorgotten songs
float dreamily back (o us, and the memory
of a woman's smile, or a manly voice, has
thrilled many a heart with an intensity of
emotion, that only a presence from the van
ished years could bring.
Youth, beauty, love, and happiness, all
belong to the beautiful vanished years, and
looking forward brings not the sati-faction
that we find in silent, sweet communion
with the past.
The joys, the happiness that ha been
ours, is ours still, for faithful memory is
ever going backward to the vanished years,
I aud bringing to us our treasures that have
But in looking forward, we see only what
may be, and past experience tells us that
hones fail. Perhaps there is nothing in the
past of a person who has reacted the quiet
middle years of life, that so brings mingled
sadness and smiles, as the recollections of
youth's first love.
How real it all seems then ; and yet how
the vision changed.
The girl that seemed an angel then, is
only an ordinary mortal now, faded and
world-weary, like the boy who thought
himself a man, and claimed the manly
right of worshipping every angel in maid
And from among the relics of the depart-,
ed years is drawn the curl of shining hair
that was such a tailstnan then.
It is just as bright, just as golden now,
and it coil itself about your fingers just as
prettily, reminding us in its almost ani
mated curling of the coquettish grace of its
But, alas '. the years in vanishing have
stolen from its tailsinanic powers, and to day
it is only a lock of woman's hair, shorn be
fore the silver threads began to linger in sai?,
silent token of the cares and weariness of
And a thought of silver hairs brings us
back to the present, and glancine in the
mirror we find .them plentifully bestowed
upon ourselves, and smile as we wonder if
the girl to whom that curl belonged has
kept that shiniug lock of bright, chestnut
hair we gave her in exchange.
Only the vanished years can tell.
Do they tell us of a broken vow that made
two lives a failure?
Why then did not that golden hair rest
forever in happy security against the breast
whereon it leaned when a lover's hand sev
ered the shining curl?
Ah! we gather only the beautiful memo
ries from the vanished years! Our treach
eries, and deceitiulness we consign to the
past, and say "let the dead past bury its
dead," and clasp more closely the sweet
cherished memories that were so exquisitive
in the reality.
How sacredly we treasure them ! How
we linger with them ! But lingering with
the vanished years brings us to silent, grass
grown graves, and mossy tombstones, and
thence to tears.
So we fuld away the treasured memories,
and know that though the straying baby
fingers may nevermore stray over our faces
and hands, and hair nor the tiny feet make
music over the stairs, and down the hall
nor white-haired age grow young again nor
broken vaw be renewed nor anything be
longing to the vanished years return to us,
we are hastening on to them. Earthlife is
only a shadow r,f the substance that the
second life affords.
Eternity is before us, and we shall say
that in the eternal years all shall not be re
.stored to us.
