And drop, when_gentle airs come"by.
That fan the tarry September sky,
While childre9 come with cries of glee,
And seek them where the fragrant grass
Betrays their bed to those who pass,
Atthe foot of the apple tree.
And when, abiave this apple tree,
ThTi winter stars are glittering bright,
And winds go howling - through - the night,
Girls, whose young eyes o'erilow with mirth,
Shall peel its fruit by cottage-hearth, -
And guests in prouder homes shall see,

And sojourners beyond the sea
Shall think of childhood's careless day,
And long,-long hours of summer play
In the shade of the apple tree.

In the boughs of the apple tree.
And time shall waste this apple tree.
Oh, when its aged branches throw
Thin shadows on the ground below, I
Shall fraud and force and iron wlli
Oppress the weak and helpless still?

Amid the toils, the strifes, the tears
Of those who livelwhen length of years

heart so warm and generous; his every

April 5. Arthur crane home sober
last night. , was sitting alone holding

faint: but my heart grew so'cold with
horror that I could not speak:at first;
when I conld,,l arose, and putting both
of my arms aroun him,. - said, steadily:
"Now tell . me about it, Arthur"—and he
did, without reserve, thank God ! He
knew he could trust his 4 wife: how he
bad been drinking all day, and in the
afternon had gone up to the Club in a
wretched and - desperate mood. There
besitAlolr l e-tu - the-gtaming-table c , and
lost very heavily, - litr..Legrand winning
ev:ry stake,, until Arthur : detected him
playing unfairly. Infuriated, Arthur
charged him with ..this, and. Mr. Le
grand rising from the table with an oath,
struck him iu the mouth a heli4 blow,
which so blieded him with rage and
pain that, hardly conscious of what he
was. doing, he drew'his pistol, unfortu
nately loaded, and ,fired upon Mr. Le
grand, still furiously threatening him.
The. ball struck right to the heart, and
the wretched man Tell dead without a
word—hurled 'right into eternity 'with •
curses yet warm noon his lips ! The
flowing flood recalled Arthur to his
seeks,' and he stood. gazing spell-bound
upon his own' deed, until a friend , led
him hl l most forcibly from the fearful
Scene, and brought him home. "And
now,, Alice, what shall' I do ?" he said;
"shall I flee the law and the State, or
stirred:ler myael f, and be done with it ?"

my husband; hit us face the terrible
consequences of your crime, whatever
they - may be; let justice be done, and
we will , meet •the result together."
Arthur sat silent, the pallor of death itself
upon his brow and fins. He seemed
to be reali zing, for the first time, the
lettere,. not only of .the present crime ;
bat of the life which had 80 naturally
led to it. He had thought himself al
ways an honorable man; had been rear
ed in a Ohristian home; had a praying
wife and mother, and beautiful, inno
cent children, whose little bends were
clasped in supplication for him night
and morning; he Led dallied with temp
titian, meaning always to do better, un
til habit—that old man of the sea—had
clutched him too fad for escape; he
couldhot free himself, and so, day by
day, month ler month, he had been
dragged down...until he maw found him-
red withbrother ' s blood; and so
he Was overwhelmed - with a deep sense
of his own sin, and guilt, an c d ruin; be
felt' that his punishment was not greater
than hp deserved, and he was willing to
bear 411 of the fearful penalties of his sin
if he might out seek and win the for
giveness of God. he would gladly ex
piate his crimes, even in prison walls,
if he might but be free fiom the galling
chains of sin.

thur's doom; yet they have heedless

Faiday, Sept. , 10.—My child is dead !
_died with his fathdr's nu ne upon his
sweet * lips; that father for whom his
childish soul travailed in a grief .which
even his mother could not comfort.
But God could, and did! He has wiped
away every tear from my darling's eyes
ere this, but who shall wipe away my
tears—his mother's ? .How can I live ?
But it is the Lord, let him do what
seeraeth unto him good. It is well
with the child, I know; ,o fears for the
future now, the little . fiet will nevea.go
astray, nor ; wander in the paths-of sin;
no sorrow wilt ever blight that tender

prayers ? He could not keepthim from
evil here. Satan desired too much to
have him. He has taken him from his
snares—ah ! well, strengiben me to
bear my great agony since he is safe.
My golden-head and soft liquid eyes.,

rest mi - brave little darling,. farewell,
until Iclasp you to my aching arms,

Poor Arthur is utterly incousolable,
his grief is terrible to witness, and re
fuses all comfort. He says, over and
over again, that God has sent this afflic
tion, far more terrible than his - impris
onment, to punish him, and because of
his tins his child has died.—the sins of
the father visited upon the children.

James Bowie.
On one•occasion Bowie, whose repu-
tation had reached 31emphis, 'arrived
by boat at that city, or rather at what
was then Inewn - as the Third . Chicka
saw Bluffs. The bank from the boat
landing to the top was about one , hun
dred and fifty feet high and a large
number 'of people were watching the
arrival of the strangers. Looking down
of them recognized Bowie as he
the remark, "There comes Jim Bowie."
"What !" shouted a - big flatboatman,
then known as the "Memphis Terror,"
as he looked down the bluff ; "what
Jim. Bowie ? That's ., the fellow I've
been looking for for months. Jim
Bowie ! Why, him, I'll whip
him ao quick he won't know what hurt
_ I'll whip him if I never whip
another man as long as I live ! Stand
by, boys, and see the fun !"
Bowie clinic slowly up the bank. In
his hand he carried an old umbrella.,
He had no pistols and was evidently
not expecting or in fact prepared for s
fight. This fact did not escape the now
thoroughly interested spectators. Up
went the flatboatman promptly, as
Bowie reached the top of the bluff. "Ia
your risme:Jim Bowie !"" he asked.
Bowie replied that it was.
"Then," shouted the &flu:drums, as .
he equaredoff, "I think you a damned

Bowie was a man of few words. H
stood and gazed at his adversary, who
was more emboldened than ever. "I
think you're a damned coward," be
yelled, ,"and I'm „going to knock you
head off," and so saying the "Mem p 1 :
Terror" advanced to the conflict.
Bowie never flinched. His keen ey e
was fixed on the "Terror," who at this
moment was face to faCe with him. But
as the man of Memphis drew a dirk
from his breast, Bowie stepped back
foot and thrust out his umbrell as if to .
keep his antagonist at bay.
. The "Memphis Tenor," seizing the
umbrella with one hand, made a pan
at the inventor of the famous knife with
the other. In so doing be pulled the
`umbrella to himself, leaving free in the
right hand of Bowie his murderous
weapon, which to this moment had been
concealed rn the folds of the impromptu
sheath: The sight of Bciwie standing

knees trembled, wSile the dirk dropped
from his hands as he gazed on Bowie's
weapon with staring eyes. "Put it up;

Bowie. I was mistaken in my man."
Bowie advanced a step.
'Don't—don't kill me?" beseeched
.the bully; "for God's sake, man, don't
go for me with that scythe , and I swear
to you I'll never attack.anotber man as

Bowie looked at his nowthOroughly

and then turning on his heel with the
expression, nletward," walked rapidly
