From Ms brow—
Oh ! ho; cold and marble ftdr—
Softly p rt the tangled hair;
Loop upon him now!
Asa welry child he lies,
With thei quiet dreamless eyes,
O'er which the lashes darkly sweep,
1 And on hit( lip the quiet smile—
The gouts itdleu,to earthly strife--
And on face the deep repose,
We never saw in life.

Striving to tear his weary lot,

With suelt,a pain within his heart—%

Veiling the secret smart.
Oh it is well the strife is o'er,
That thus so peacefully he lies,
Unheeding now the bitter words,
The cold, .unpitying eyes.
Fold his mantle o'er his breast ;
Peaceful be sleep, and blest.

And leave hi body to the dust,

Some eight ears ago, the now flourish
ng town of toil, on the Delaware, was
but a small set ement in one of the re
mote and comp naively wild portions of
Pennsylvania. Not far from the Delewsre,
a double row of low-roofed, qdaint-looking
stone houses firmed the moat populow
part of the sett •ment. • • • • * •
* • 4 The !.., frusta of that miod
were of the cL _ described by adistin

e, antT wore
wore the same antiquated quilted caps and
parti-ciolored 'homespun:gowns; that were
in fashion in the days of thei renowned
Wouter Van Twiller ; their Nckets were
always with work and; the imple
ments of inditstry, and their Own gowns
and their husband's coats were exclusive
ly of domestic manufacture. In cleanli
ness and thrifty housewifery, they were ex-
Pelted by none who had gone before, or
who came after them. The well scoured
stoops and entries, fresh and immaculate
every morning, attested the neatness pre
vailing throughout the dwellings. The
precise order that reigned within, in the
departments of kitchen, parlor, and chum
her, could not lie disturbed by any
door comnioti!m. Cleanliness and con
tentment were the cares of the household.
'file tables were spread with the abundance
of the good old time, and not small was
the pride of those ministering dames in
, ctting forth the viands prepared by their
own industrious hands. It must not be
*supposed that, all their care and frugality
were inconsistent with the dear exercise of
hospitality, or other social virtues usually
practised in every female community. If
the visits paid from house to house were
less frequent than in modern times, there
was the same generous interest in the oon
terns of others, and the same desire in each
to save her neighbor trouble by kindly
taking the management of affairs upon
herself, evinced by so many individuals of
the present day. In short, the domestic
police of Easton, at that remote period,
was apparently as remarkable for vigilance
and severity in hunting out otret,ders , sa it
has proved to be in times of more modern
The arrival of new r , •:,idents from the
city was an event of i'oportance enough in
itself to cause no small stir in that quiet
community, The rumor that a small
house, picturesquely situated at the edge
of a wood some distance from the village,
was being flitted up for the new comers,
was soon *spread abroad, and gave rise to
many conjectures and surmises. The new
furniture that paraded in wagons before
the astonished eyes of the settlers, was dif
ferent from any that had been seen before;
and, though it would have been thought
simple enough, or even rude, at the pres
ent day, exhibited too much of metropoli
tan taste and luxury to meet their approval.
Then a gardener was emplOyed several
days to set in order the surrounding plot
of ground, and set out rose bushes and or
namental plants ; the renal Was painted
gaily, and the inclosure secured by a neat
gate. A few days after, a light traveling
wagon brought the tenants to the abode
prepared for them. Within the memory
of a generation. lewdly any occurrence bad
taken place whiCh excited so much curios
ity. The doors and windows were crowd
with gazers ; and the younger part of the
population were hardly restrained by pa
rental authority from rushing after the
equipage. The female, who sat with a boy
on the back seat, wore a thick veil ; but
the pleasant face of the middle aged man,
who looked about him, and bowed courte
ously to the different groups, attracted
much attention. The man who drove had
a jolly English face, betokening a very
communioanive disposition ; nor was the
promise broken to the hope ; for that , very
evening the same personage was meted
among a few grave-looking Dutchmen who
lingered M, the tavern, dealing mat his in
formation liberally to such as chose to
question him. The new comer, it apPear
ed. was a member of the Colonial Ageism
bly, and had brought his family to rukti
cate for a miaszin on the banks of the Dea
-1 aware. This: family consisted of his En
glish wife, anti a son about 'revert years old.
They had been accustomed, be said, to the
society of the rich and gay, both in Phila
delphia and in Europe, having spent some
time in Paris before their coming to this

It was on one of the brightest days in
October, that Mrs. Winton was riding with
her son along a path leading through the
forest up the Delaware. The road wound
at the base of a mountain, bordering the
river closely, and was flanked in some
places by precipitous rocks, overgrown with
shrubs, and shaded by overhanging trees.
The wealth of foliage appeared to greater
advantage, touched with the rich tints of
"Wit.h hues more gay
Than when the Ilow'rets bloomed, the treasure
drest :
How gorgeous are their draperies ! green
and gold,
Scarlet and crimson ! like the glittering rest
Of Israel's priesthood, glorious to behold !
"See yonder towering hill, with forests clad,
How bright Its mantle of a thousand dyes
Edged with a silver band, the stream, that glad,
But silent, winds around its base."
It can hardly be known if the romantic
beauty of the scene, which presented itself
by glimpses through the foliage, the bright,
calm river, the wooded hills and slopes be
yond, ancrthe village laying in the lap of
the savage forest, called forth as much ad
miration from those who gazed, as it has
since from spirits attuned to a vivid sense
of the loveliness of nature. The sudden
flight of a bird from the bushes startled
the horse, and, dashing quickly to one
side, he stood on the sheer edge of the preci
pice overlooking the water. The next
plunge might have been a fatal one, but
that the bridle was instantly seized by the
strong arm of a man who sprang from the
concealment of the trees. Checking the
frightened animal, he assisted the dame
and her son to dismount, and then led the
horse for them to less dangerous g,round.
In the friendly conversation that followed,
the Englishwoman put forth all her power
of pleasing ; for the AM was known al
ready to her for one at the most respecta
ble of the settlers, thev4ll he had never
yet sought her society.. Ws little service
wall rewarded by aeerclal invitation, which
was soon followed by a visit, to her house.
To makeliln story short, not many
weeks had. before this neighbor was
an almost. y visitor ; and, to the cur
rise and concern of the whole village, his
example was in time followed by many
others of those who might have been call
ed the gentry of Easton. It became evi
dent that the handsome stranger was a co
quette of the most unscrupulous sort ; that
she was passionately fond of the admira
tion of the other sex, and was determined
to corset the tribute due her charms, even
from the sous of the wilderness. Site
ed desperately with one after soother, con
triving to impress each with the ides that
h e w a s the happy individual especially fa
vored by her smiles. Iler manners and
conversation showed less and less regard
for the opinion of others, or the rules of
propriety. The effect of such ri course of
conduct in a community to simple and
old-fashioned in their customs, so utte r ly
unused to any such broad dedanoe of cen
sure, ma 7 be more easily imaghtell than
described Row the men were flattered
and intoxicated in their admiration for the
beautiful siren, and their lessons in an art
so new to them as gallantry; how th e
women were amazed outof their propriety,
can be conceived without the aid of phi
Thinp were had enough as •they were;
but when the time came for Mr. Winton
to depart and take his place in the Assem

was now more Scandalous than ever, and

in great soont, while she , continued to ie•
&live s In a still 1140Xen11,141:01i and offenakee
manner; the attention of the huibanda,
whom, she boasted, she had taught they
had hearts under their Linsey-woolsey coats.
Long walks and tides through the woods,
attended always/ by some one who had
owned the power of her beauty, set public
opinion wholly at defiance; and the com
pany at her fireside, evening after evening,
was well known to be not such as became
a Wife and mother to receive.
Should this history of plain, unvasnish
ed fact chance tO meet the eye of any fair
trifler, who has been -tempted to invite or
welcome such homage, let her pause and
remember that the wrath of the injured
wives of Easton was but such as nature
must rouse in the bosom of the virtuous in
all ages and countries;and,that tragedies as
deep as that to whic h it led have grown
from the like cause, and may still do so at
any period of civilization.
The winter months passed, and spring
came to set loose the streams, and fill the
woods with tender bloom and vendure.—
But the anger of the justly irritated dames
of Easton had gathered strength with
time. Scarce one among the moist con
spicuous of the neighbortuxxl but had per
titular reason to have their common ene
my for their alienated affections and mon
opolised time of her husband, so faithful
to his duties before this fatal enchantment.
Complaints were made by one to another,
and strange stories were told, which, - of
course, lost nothing_ in their circulation
from mouth to mouth. What *ender was
it that the mysterious influence exercised
by the strange woman should be attributed
to wit bereft ? What wonder that she
should be judged to hold intercourse with
evil spirits, and to receive from them the
power by which she subdued men to her
Late in the afternoon of a beautiful day
in the early part of June, two or three of
the matrons of' the village stationed them
selves near the wood by which stood the
house of Kra Winton. Not far from this
was a small pond, where the boys amused
themselves in Ilshing„or bathed during the
heats of summer. The spot once occupied
by the tittle body of water is now the cen
tral portion of the town, and covered with
neat buildings of brick and stone.
The women had come forth to watch ;
nor was their vigilance king unrewarded.
They saw Mrs. Winton, accompanied by
one of her gallants, dressed with a care
that showed' his anxiety , to please, walking
slowly along the borders of the wood. The
sun had set, and the gray shadows of twi
light were creeping over the landscape; yet
it was not evidently 'her intention to re
turn home. As it grew darker, the two
entered the 'wood, the female taking the
arm of her companion, and presently both

Such a scene as the night witnessed was
never before enacted in that quiet village.
At a lute hour there was a meeting of many
of the matron:, in the house of one of their
number. Thecurtains wereclosely drawn;
the light was so dim
ad that the faces of those
-- 1 .----e.hieneeed wo:lay pool,/
dseerneo. Tl,err was semester;
in the assemblage, at such an unwZe:l
time, of those orderly housewives, eo un
arem.tomed ever to leave their homes alter
dusk. The circumstance of their meeting
a l one betokened something uncommon in
agitation. Still more slid the silence, hush
ed and breath/o.s at intervals, the eager,
but suppressed whispering, the rapid ges
ture', the general air of determination
mingled with caution. As it struck mid
night; they nestle signs one to another,
and the light was extinguished.
It was perhaps an hour or more after,
when the same band of women left the
house, and took their way, in profound si
lence, along the road leading out of
the village. By a roundabout course,
skirting the small body of 'ater above
mentioned, they came to the border of the
wood. Just then the waning moon rose
above the forest tole, shedding a faint
light over hill and stream. It. could then
be seen that the females all wore a kind of
meek of black stuff. Their course was di
rected towards the Englishwoman's house,
which they approached with stealthy and
noiseless stets.
A few moments of silence poised, after
they had disap , and then a wild
shriek was and others fainter and
fainter, like-the voice of one in agony
struggling to cry out, and stifled by power
ful hands. The women rushed from the
wood, dragging with them their helpless
victim, whom they had gagged, ea that she
could not even supplicate their mercy.—
Another cry leas presently heard—the wail
of a terrified child. The little boy, roused
trom sleep by the screams of his mother,
ran towards' her captors, and throwing
himself on his kne e s, begged for her in
piteous secants and with streaming tears.
" Take him away !" cried several togeth
er ; and one of their number, snatching up
the child, ran off with him at her utmost
speed, and did not return.
The other* proceeded quioky to their
mission of vengeance. Dragging the help
less dame to the pond, they rushed into it,
heedless of risk to themselves,' till they
stood in deep water. Then each, in turn,
seising her enemy by the shoulders, plung
ed her in. head and all, crying, as she did
so, '' This is for 1117 husband ! ' "And this
for miner "This for mine!" was echoed,
with the plunges, in quick succession, till
the work of retribution was accomplished,
and the party hurried to shore.
Startled by a noise as of some one ap
proaching, 'the disguised avengers fled,
leaving their viol= on the bank,.and lost
no time 134 hastening homeward. The
dawn of day disclosed a dreadful catastro
phe: Dame Winton wail found dead beside
the water. There was evidence enough
that she had perished, not by accident, but
violence. Who could ' have done the
deed ?
The occurrence created great commotion
in Easton, es it was but natural it should;
hut It was never discovered with certainty
who were the pMpetratora of the murder.
Suspicion fell on several; but they were
prudent enoughito keep silence, and no
thing could be proved against them. Per
haps the more prominent among the men,
who should have taken upon themselves
the investigation of the affair, had their
own reasons for panting it over rather
slightly. It Wee beyond doubt, too, that
actual murder had not been designed by
the actors in the tragedy ; but simply the

haunted the spcst where she had died.—
