When the march of day is ended,
And we need no more keep time
To the clanging sounds of active life,
With their slow and measured chime
How sweet to droop our wearied lids
O'er wearied eyes, while rest,
Like a holy benediction, floats
To um from islands blest.
But oh, if sin bath left its cross
On the tablets of the day,
Rest will not still the harp of life
But on its chords still play .
!tinging sad and fitful ohanps,
With a chiding touch and low,
Till every quivering string gives forth
A ..Itivering voice of woe
Thus will it be when death's dark night
shall settle like a pall
Around U. and we fold uur hands
The dead past to recall.
If darkened days fill uklithe ranks,
our hearth will wildly wail;
lint white days will a glimmer throw
Within the darkened vale.

A SWEEIREART RACE.
kW SFr\ SMITH
Hardly any event creates a stranger sen
sation in a thinly settled New England vil
lage. especially among the young folks,
than the arriVal of a fresh and blooming
who conies to make her abode in the
neighborhisd.i When, therefore, Squire
Johnson, the only lawyer in the place, and
a very respectable man, of course, told
Farmer Jones one afternoon that his wife's
sister, a smart girl of eighteen, was coming
in a few day. to reside in the family, the
new flew like wild-fire through Pond vil
lage and was the principal topic of conver
sat ion for a week. Pond village is situated
upon the margin of one of thane numerous
and beautiful sheets of water that gem the
a surface of New England like the
Might -tar. in an eveningsky, and received
it. :9.1...nati0n to distinguish it from two
or htt. other' pillages in the same town
-hip, which Mild not boast of a similar lo
cation. When Farmer Jones came in to
hi. .upper about sunset, that afternoon,
and took his seat at the table, the eyes of
the whole family were upon him, for there
was a peculiar working about his mouth
and a knowing glance in his eyes that al
a4ll-, told them when he had any thing of
interest to communicate. But Farmer
Jones' secretiveness was large, and his tem
perament note the most active, and he
would probably have rolled the important
secret as a sweet morsel under his tongue
for a long time, had not Mrs. Jones, who
Ca. rather of an impatient and prying turn
of mind, contrived to draw it Imp
:::::::::::: e., "what is it you are
going to say ? Do, out with it ; for you've
been chewing something in your mind ever
-ince you came in the house."
-lrs my tobacker, 1 s'pose," said Mr.
Jones, with another knowing glance of
••Now, father, what's the use 7 - said Su
an: "N‘e all know you've something or
other you want to say, and why can't you
tell us what 'tis."
....La. who cares what 'tis!" said Mrs.
.10ne...; "it irt was anything worth telling,
V. ,houldn't have to wait for it, I dare
Hereupon Mrs. Jones assumed ah air of
the most perfect indifference. as the surest
wa) of conquering what she was pleased to
'sill Mr. Jones' obstinacy. which, by the
way, vta.s a very improper term to apply in
the case: Mt it was only the working of
secretiveness, withoet the least particle of
obstinacy attached Co it.
There was a pause of two or three Min
utes in the conversation, till Mr. Jones
passed his cup to be filled a second time,
when, with a couple of preparatory ahems,
he began to let out the secret.
"We are to have a new neighbor here in
is few days," Mr. Jones, stopping short
when he hail uttered this much, and sip
ping his tea and filling his mouth with
Mrs. Jones, who was perfect in her tac
tics, said not a word, but attended to the
affairs of her table as though she had not
noticed what was said. The farmisse
cretivenesshad at last worked its lf out,
and he began again.
"Squire Johnson's wife's sister is coming
here in a few days, and is going to live with
The news being thus fairly divulged left
free scope for conversation.
••Well, I wonder if she is a proud, stuck
up piece," said Mrs. Jones.
"I shouldn't think she would be," said
Susan, "for there ain't a more sociable wo-
Luau in the neighborhood than Mrs. John
son. So if she is at all like her sister, I
think ae shall like her."
"I wonder how old she is?" said Stephen,
who was just verging toward the close of
his twenty-first year.
"The squire called her eighteen," said
Mr. Jones, giving a wink to his wife. as i
much as to say, that's about the right-age
"1 wonder if she is handsome," said Su
who was somewhat vain of her own
looks," and having been a sort of reigning
belle in Pond village for some time, she
felt a little alarmed at the ides of a rival.
-I dare be bound she's handsome," said
Mr-.. Jones. "if she's sister to Mrs. John
son, for where'll you find a handsomer
woman than Mrs. Johnson, go the town
After supper, Stephen went down to Mr.
Robinson's store, and told the news to young
Charlie Robinson, and all the young fel
lows, who were gathered there for a pme
at quoits and ring at wrestling. And Su
san went dirpetly over to Mr. Bean's and
told Patty, amd Patty went around to Wid
ow Davis's and told Sally, and before nine

At the close of the fourth day, little be
fore sunset, a chaise was seen to drive up
to Squire .Tohnson's door. Of course the
eyes of the whole village were turned in
that direction. Sally Davis, who was just
coming in from milking. set her pail down
on the grass by the side of the roar) as soon

till it reached the squire's door, and the

just taken a hot iron from the Are as the
chaise passed the door, and she ran with
it in her hand and stood on the door step
till the whole ceremony of alighting. greet

with a kiss. ' •
"La me, if there isn't the squire kissing

kissing afore folks, , and out of doors tu ; I

"Well, I shouldn't.," said young John
Bean, who came upithat moment, and who
had passed the clubee just as the young
lady alighted from it. ' "I shouldnl, be
ashamed to kiss sushi pretty gal as that,

While these obeeivations were going rei
at old Mr. Bean's, Charles Robinson and a
group of young fellows with him were
standing in front of Robinson's store, a
little further down the road, and watching
the scene that was passing at Squire John
son's. They witnessed the whole with be--
coming decorum, now and then making a
remark upon the !hie horse and the hand

bend his head down and give the young
lady a kiss, when they all burst out into a
loud laugh. In a moment, beingconscious
that their laugh nt.ist be heard and noticed
at the squire's, they, in order to do away
the impression it intuit necessarily make.
at once turned their heads another way,
and Charles Robinson, who was quick at
an expedient, knocked off the hat of the
lad who was standing next to bun, and
then they all laughed louder than before.
"Here comes Jack Bean," said Charles,
"now we shall hear something about her,
for Jack was coming by the squire's when
she got out of the chaise. How does she
look, Jaik ?"
"Hividsome as a pictur," said Jack. "I

"Rather short," said Jack ••but straight

The next day was a very tong day, at
least to most of the young men - or Pond
village ; and promptly an hour before sun
set most of them were assembled, with
half a score of their sister and female cous
ins, by a little stone wharf on the margin
of the pond, for the proposed sail. All
the girls in the village of a suitable age
were there, except Patty Bean. She had
undergone a good deal of fidgetting and
fussing during the day to prepare for the
sail, but had been disappointed. Her new
bonnet was not done ; and as to wearing
her old flap-sided bonnets she declared
she would not, if she never went
Presently Susan Jones and Miss Lucy
Brown were seen coming down the road.
In a moment all was quiet. the laugh and
joke was hushed, and each one put on his
best looks. When they arrived. Susan
went through the ceremony of introdu
cing Miss Brown to each of the ladies and
"But how in the world are you going to
sail?" said Miss Brown, "for there isn't a
breath of wind ; and I don't see any mil

"Oh, the less wind we have the better,
when we sail here," said Charles Robinson,
"and there is our sail-boats," pointing to
a flat-bottomed scowboat some twenty feet
long by ten wide. I
"We don't use sails," said Jack Bean :
"sometimes, when the wind is fair, we put
a bush to help pull along a little, and when 1
'tisn't, we row."
The party were soon embarked on board
the scow, and a couple of oars were set in
motion and they glided slowly and pleas
antly over as fine a sheet of water as ever
glowed in the sunsetting ray.
In one hour's time the whole party felt
perfectly acquainted with Miss Lucy B rown.
,talked in the most lively and fas
cinating manner ; she had told stories and
sung songs. Among others, she had given
Moore's boat song with the sweetest pos

in the party were decidedly in love with

occiustorndly stood at the door or looked
out of the window, and once or twice when
she walked out with Susan Jones, and the
fair view they all bad of her at meeting on
the Sabbath, served but to increase their
admiration, and to render her more and
more an object of attraction. She was re
garded by all as a prize, and several of them
were already planning what steps to take

movement of the other. They had ceased
to speak to each other about her, and if
her name was mentioned in their present*,
both were always observed to color.
The second week after her arrival,
through the influence of Squire Johnson,
the district school was offered to Miss Brown
on the other side of the pond, which offer
was accepted and she went immediately to
take charge of it. This announcement at
first threw something of a damper upon
the spirits of . the young people of Pond
village. But when it was understcod that
the school would continue but a few weeks,
and being but a mile and a half. distant,
Mile Brown would come home every Sat
urday afternoon and spend the Sabbath, it
was not very difficult to be reconciled to
the temporary arrangement. The week
wore away heavily, especially to Charles
Robinson and Stephen Jones. They count
ed the days impatiently till Saturday, they
counted the long and lagging hours to noon.
They had both mad, up their minds that
it would be dange t tous to wait any longer,
and they both resolved not to let another
Sabbath pass without making a direct pro
posal to Miss Brown.
Stephen Jones was .too early a riser for
Charles Robinson, and, in any enterprise
whore both were concealed, was pretty
sure to take the lead, except where money
could-Parry the palm, and then, of course,
it was elways borne away by Charles. As
Miss Lucy had been absent the most of the
week, and was to be at home that after
noon, Charles Robinson had made an ar
rangement with his mother and sister to
have a little tea-party in the evening, for
the purpose of inviting Miss Brown ; and
then, of course, he should walk home with
her in Ow evening ; and then, of course,
would hi' a good opportunity to break the
ice, and make know his feelings and wish
es. Stephen .Tones, however, was more
prompt in his tuovements Lie had got
wind of the proposed tea-party, although
himself and sisters, for obvious reasons, had
not been invited, and he resolved not to
await the arrival of Miss Brown and her visit
to Mr. Robinson's before he should see her.
She would dismiss her school at noon and
come the distance of a mile and a half round
the pond home. His mind was at once
made up. lie would go round and meet
her at the school house. and accompany
hen on her calk. There, in that winding
road around those delightful waters with the
tall and shady trees overhead, and the wild
grapevines twining round their lrunks and
climbing to the branches, while the wild
birds were singing through the itrixxis, and
the wild ducks playing in the coves along
the shore, surely there, if anywhere in the
world, could a man bring his mind up to
the point of speaking of love.
Accordingly a little before neon, Stephen
washed and brushed himself up, and put
on his Sunday clothes, and started on his
expel lit ion. In order to avoid observation,
he took a back route across—the field, -in
tending to count into the road by the pond
a little out of the village. As ill luck would
have it, Charles Robinson had been out in
the same direction, and was returning with
an armful of green boughs anti wild flow
ers, to ornament the parlor for the evening.
He saw Stephen. and noticed his dress, and
the direction he was going, and he at once
smoked the whole business. His first im
pulse was to rush upon him, gelid collar him,
and demand that he should return back.
But when he recollected that in the last
scratch he had with Stephen. two or three
years before, he had a little the worst of it,
asked upon upon his mind at once that " tre

half a tittle, they came in the range of a lit

the road was exposed to View, and there,
at that moment, was Stephen pursuing his
easy tt alk. Charles' heart was in his mouth.
Stall it was possible Stephen might not see
them. foi he had not yet looked around.
I.r.t the sound of the oars might attract
hi- attention, Charles had instantly on

again to disappear. But just as he was up

This, of course, added new life to the
boys and increased the speed of the boat.
Their little canoe flew over the water al
most like a bird, carrying a white bone i n
her moth, and leaving a long ripple on the
glassy wave behind her. Charles' hands
trembled, but still he did good execution
with his paddle. Although Stephen upon
the run was a very different thing from
Stephen at a slow walk, Charles still had
strong hopes of winning tlfe Moe and gain
ing his point. He sveral times caught
glimpses of Stephen through the tress, and,
as well as he could judge, the boat had a lit
tle the best of it. But when they came out
into the last opening, where for a little way
theyihad a fair view of each other—Charles
thought Stephen ran faster than ever; and
although he was,now considerably nearer
We school-house than Stephen was, he
still trembled for the result. They were
now within fifty rods of the shore, and
Charles appealed again to the boys' lore of
"Now," said he, "we have not &minute

you a dollar apiece."
The boys strained every nerve, and

tospring with all their might, and one of
the boys making a desperate plulsge upon
his car, snapped it in two. The first pull
of the other oar headed the boat from land.
Charlie saw at once that the delay raiallt be
fatal, if he depended on the boat t carry
him ashore. The water was but three feet
deep, and the bottom was sandyl r He
=gfrom the boat, and rushed toward
ore aa- fast as he was 'able to press
through the water. He flew up the bank,
and along the road, till he reached the
house. The door was open, but he could
see no one within. Several children were
at play round the door, who, having seen
Charleaapproach, with mouth and eyes wide
open, stared at him.
"Where's the school ma'am?" said Chas.
hastily, to one of the largest boys.
"Why," said the boy, opening his eyes
still wider, "is any of the folks deed?"
"You little rascal, I say, where's the

boy, "two or three minutes ago."
"Wm she alone 1" said Charles.
•'She started alone," said the boy, "and
a man met her out there a little ways, and
turned about and went with her."
Charles felt that his cake was all dough
again and that he might as well give it up
for a bad job, and go honte. Stephen Jones
and Lucy Brown walked very leisurely
home through the woods, and Charles and
the boys went very leisurely in the boat
across the pond. They even stopped by the
way, and caught a mess of fish, since the
boys had thrown their lines into the boat
when they started. And when they reached
the wharf. Charles in order to show that he
had been a fishing, took a long string offish
in his hand and carried them up to the
house, Miss Lucy Brown, on her way
home through the woods, had undoubtedly
been informed of the proposed tea•party
for the evening, to which she was to be in

Susan Jones were not to be invited: and
when Miss Lucy's invitation came, she sent
back word that she was ItNGACILD.

A Yorso Halt Savui.—Burleigh the
New York correspondent of the Boston
Journal, relates the following anecdote as
illustrating the - ease with which a young
man may be saved as well as ruined.
One of the leading brokers of New York
had a young man in his emptoy. The vast
amount of money in his hands was a great
temptation to him. Small iums were
missed day after day, one quarter, then
fifty cents, then one dollar, then two dol
lars were missed. He was charged with
the peculation. The broker showed him
he could detect the abstraction of the
smallest sum from his money ; the young
man stammered and confessed. "Well,"
said the broker, "I shall not discharge I
shail not dishonor you. * I intend to keep
you-and make a man of you. You will be
a vagabond if you go along in this way.
Now, let me see no moreof this."
Ile went to his work. did not dis
appoint the man's confidence. He did honor
to his employer. And the other day he was
inducted into one of our banks in an hon
orable position, and his employer became
his bondsman to the amount of $lO, - 000.
Had he conducted himself as some would
have done—sent the boy sway and pro
claimed his dishonor—perhaps he would
have elded his days in the State Prison,
and been sent to his tomb in the garb of
a convict. But one young man was res

WHERE THE LARGII CAMS IN.—Bunce's
and Sizer's farm adjoined each other. 'Siz
er had an unruly sheep which was in the
habit of getting into Bunce's field. Bunco
expostulated with Sizer several times, and
then told him if he did not keep his sheep
at home, be would fix him so he wouldn't
jump any more fences. But , Bunco soon
found the sheep back again ; so he caught
him, and with a knife severed the cuticle
or skin just beyond the gambril joint, and
between the main cord and tone, then thrust
the other hind leg through the aperture,
and then put the sheep back tiver the fence,
who went off hobbling on three lee. Sizer
soon after discovered the sad plight his
sheep was in, and he knew very well who
was the cause of it, but he concluded to
take things coolly, and await some suitable
opportunity to revenge himself. Presently,
Bunce's old sow broke into Sizer's field,
aiien he caught her, and with a,sharp knife
cut her mouth almost from ear to ear, and
turned her back. When Bunco discovered
this, he went to Sizer in a great rage, and
demanded of him what he did that for.—
