Yea! there, e'en when all hope had down,'
We wept away each lingering hour,'
Until the shades ,of death mime down, -
. And closed at last the shutting hour.
And yet it seena'd like Biwto grieve
, For one so patient and resignedi, •
. For if she'mourit'd.lwas hut to leave'
Such breaking hearts behind.
She died.. Yet death could "scarcely chill
Her smiling beauties, she lay ,
With.cold extended limbs; for,still
Her lime looked Lim than the day.'
Those eyes eke eloquent with bliss,
Were closed'as soft as shutting flowers,_ .
Oh! few could bear a sight like-this— •
Yet,suph a sight was
flow slowly wore that king, long day; • •
• Like spirits in some haunted place

_That loved 118 more than life.
• And when thelunerat rite'was'Snid, -
. They bore her from hop happy home,
' And left her with the silent dead,
A pale-faced tenant of the tomb. " ,
They reared no marble 'mid the Bowers, •
Above her grave to 'hark the spot;
.; '• Yet many a heart as fond as ours
Still holds her unforgot, ' --
Months passed, yet still our sorrow gusli'd,
, The like, glad laugh no more was heard;
And ninny a little voice was hushed,
, That used to warble likes bird.
'Amf though_at times we strove to smile , •
Serenely, for each other's sake, : •
We wept in secret all the while,
As' if our beads would break.
Yet why should death be linked with fear?
'A single breath,a low drawn sigh,
Gm break the ties that bind us here,
. And waft the spirit to the sky.

No clam Inge to ticia mortal-clod,_ _

. possessed of more than _ordinary intellect:
He was on - the point of speaking.
"In this emergency, Penrose, I look to
you for counsel. You know Mary—you
know also how deeply I love her, and that

I fear we will never win the mother's con•

her heart on a union between this Mr.,Bart

that can, will be done to bring about the
marriage. But I know the 'Sweet girl 'on

entreaties should change to persecution.—
Mrs. Swanson however—for I know her
character—will say when she learns all,
that I am a fortune hunter, and nothing
more will be necessary to prove the charge

We will not attempt to deScribe ,the
meeting 'of the long separated lovers.—
A. few words, of explanation will clOse
,our narrative. Mary had remained firm to
her troth under every persecution, and, at
length, Mr. Bartlett 'withdrew. in despair,
though it was said that the loss of all Mrs.
Swanson's.fortune and that of her daugh
ter, which about this time occurred, had no
little influence on his deterMination. M is
fortune softened .the mother's heart,. and
she repented of all the wrong she had done
Mary, and would willingly have bestow
ed her on,..Henry. . But, in pursuance of
his resolution, he had kept his residence a
secret, even from Mary, intending only to
reveal it when he 'could claim her as hiabiide.
At length increasing poverty forced Mrs.
Swanson with her daughter to seek a re
fuge in the far west,and we have seen how
opportunely they met • with Henry. " We

united at her bedside ere she died, which I
event took place in a short week after her
journey had been stopped by her illness.
"Was I not right?" said the young
bride to her husband, "for now we have
no reproaches to inakb to ourselves for
want of duty.".
"Yeo!" said he,, fondly kissing ter.

Our attention is now attracted to a ray
of light that glitters on the apex of a bald
and noble head " located" on the left of
the House, in' the
i neighborhood of the,
• Spealier's chair. 'lt proceeds from that won
derful man, who in his person combines
the agitator, pOet, philosopher, statesman;
critic, and orator—Jonx QUINCY ADAMS.
Who,d;at has seen him sitting beneath the
cupola of the hall, with the rays of light
gafhering and glancing about his singulatly
polished head, but has likened him to one
of tie luminaries of the age, shining and
glittering in the firmament of the Union ?
There he sits, hour after hour, and day af
ter day, with untiring patience; never ab
sent from his seat, never voting for an ad
journment, vigilant as the most zealous
member of the House—his ear evet on the
alert—himself always prepared to go at
once into the profoundest questions of State, '
or the minutest points of order—What must
be his thoughts as he ponders upon the
past, in which he has played a part so con
spicuous? ,We look at him and mark his
cold and tearful eye, his stern and.abstract-'
ed gaze, and conjure up phantoms of other
scenes. We see hint amid fes,tive And
