Beneath the budding lilacs
A little maiden sighed—
The first flower in her garden
That very morn bad died.
I thought, as that child's sorrow
Rose wailing on the air, -
My heart,gave forth an echo,
Long bound in silence there
I'or though time brings us roses,
And golden fruits beside,
We're all some desert. garden
Where life's first primrose died
_ When I was.about six years old, one morn
ing, going to school, a ground squirrel ran in
its hole'in the road, as they like to dig holes
in places whore they can put out their head,
to see if any danger is near. I thought, now
I Will have fine fun. A's there was a stream
of water just at hand, I determined to 'pour
water into, the hole until it would bo full, and
force the little animal up, so that I might kill
'it. I got a trough from beside a sugarnmple,
used for catching the sweet sap, and was soon
pouring the water iu on the poor little squir
-.rel. 1 could hear it struggling to get up, and
said :
"Ali, my little fellow I'll Boon have you
out now."
Just then I heard a voice behind me:.
"Well, my boy, what hove you got then?"
. I turned, and saw ono of my neighbors, a
good old man, with long white looks, that had
seen sixty winters.
" e Nhy," said I, "I have a ground squirrel
in hero, and I am going to drown him out."
Said be, "Jonathan, when I was a littlo
boy, Moro than fifty years ago, I was engaged
ono day, just as you aro, drowning a ground
squirrel; and an old man, like me, came a
long,..and said to me, 'You are a littlo boy;
now if you were- down in a littlo hole, like
that, and I should own° along and pour water
down on you to ' drown you, would you not
think I was oruol ? God madothat little squir
rel, and life is as sweet to it as to you; and
why' will you torture to death a little oreaturo
that God has made?"
• Said ho, " I have never forgottealbet t ,and
never shall. I have never killed any harm

boy, I want you to remember this while yea
live, and when tempted to kill any poor , littlO
Innocent animal or bird, .think,` of this; and

Forty years ago my father's family settled
in ono of the counties of central New York.—
All was a wilderness, wild, grand, beautiful.
We located fifteen miles from the furthest pio
neer. The woods were around us, the tall
trees and the , picturesque mousztains. ".
We had opened a space in the forest, and a
cabin of the good old time afforded us shelter.
It looked new and comfortable, and its chim
ney-smoke curled gracefully op and vanished
with the shadows of the forest. . The black
ened heaps smoked and crackled, and deep in
those wildwoed solitude 6 the wilderness blos
somed and smiled in the presence of yellow
harvests. A happy home was there. The
birds sang at the, earliest morn, Mill the deep
ricer near the door murmured sweetly at
nightfall. There were gentle whisperings a
mong the trees. As they bowed their heads
in the winds,,a holy anthem fleeted up from .
the vast temples where nature breathes fresh
and pure from the hand of God. The wild
flowers bloomed even by the door sill, and the
deer,stopped in the forest to gaze upon the
smoke of this chimney top.
T'was a beautiful borne in the wilder
The spring brought us neighbors. 'Twos a
groat day when a settler came and purchased
land across the river. Ile received a warm
welcome from pioneer hearts, and by the ready
agency of pioneer hands, a comfortable log
cabin peeped out from the dense wood-land of
the opposite bank. I watched'the smoke from
the open roof i'l3 the sun went down, and ea
gerly looked for it in • the morning. But it
was not the smoke I cared so much-about. I
only knew that it curled up from the fireside
where dwelled as beautiful a creature as ever
bloomed away from the busy world. And so
1 watched tha - emoke,-aricl dreamed as I
watched the river until the moon threw down
its beautiful pathway of shining silver, and
listened for the sound of familiar footsteps.
- "Across tlie rive• was the home of Curry
Mason. Before the mellow haze of Autumn
had dropped its dreary hue on leaf or stream,
I had learned to love her, and tell tier so in
the still moonlight of that hidden home.
The leaves faded and the winter winds swept
through the forest. But We cared little for
that.• Tho•snow fell thick and
: fast, but our
-cabin homes were bright, and our hearts were
alive 'with hfippiness and hope. When the
spring opened and the birds returned we were
to be marriett . -
A Winter evening party-in' a new country.—
Did you' ever attend one, reader? There'
,are large hearths nod open hearte there to be`
' , found. ,
Carry and I were invited to attend the par
ty ; and a rude 'jumper' bad been built, and
in this we started. Ten miles were soon pas
sed, and we found ourselves in as merry and
happy a throng as ever gathered on a frontier.
The huge 'fire cracked on the wide hearth, and
the old fashioned fun and: frolic rang out until
a late hour.
The moon had gone down when we started
for home, and the snow began to fall ; but we
heeded it not, for we talked as fast as the
stout horse sped on tba, forest path.
Carry grasped my arm rind whispered,
" bist I'The wind shrieked over the tops of
the dm k pines, and I laughs at her -fears.—
But she nestled closer to my side, and talked ,
with loss glee. In spite of all my efforts, a
shadow would creep over my own spirit.
-The road wound among a dense growth of
pines which shot--upwards, and Veiled even
the sky irom our path. The old pines swayed
and moaned in the inorensing storm, and the
snow fell fast and thickly. I touched the
licrito with the whip itind ho moved' briskly
through the woods. Again Carry grasped my
arm. I beard nothing save the storm, and yet
I started as the hOrse gave a quick snort and
struck into a gallop. With a heart full of
happiness I had not yet dreamed of danger.
Again the horse snorted in alarm. There
was a sound above the storm. I felt my
checks grow 'white and-cold, and the bloodA
rush quickly to my heart.
Clear, wild, terrible, it burst out in .nn
earthly 'howl like a wail from the world of
fiends. I beard it. Its dismal, heart chilling
echoes had not died away on the.storm, when
it was answered from a score of throats.
Merciful God! a peek of wolves were around
us. • In thoim dprk woods at night, and the
storm howling over head, a score of hungry
throats wore fiercely yelling at each other on
the feast.
For a moment my senses reeled. But I felt
Carry loaning heavily,on my shoulder, and I
But whet hope was there? 'I had no weap
on, and the maddened devils wore in the path
before and behind- us. There was but one
chance, and 'that was to push ahead.
This was a slim whanco, and I grow sick as
Lthouglit of Clrry. The quiet 'cabin and the
happy hearth at home flashed swiftly through .
my brain. . • ,
; At that moment a ‘ dark shadow glided up by
the sido of our sleigh; and so wild and "dov,el- •
ish I have never heard since. Ali flesh
crawled on my hones. A acid shiver ran to'
my heart and crept to my. head as 'though the
hairs were standing on owl. Tw orbs glared: ,
out like demon lightS, and I could hear the
panting of the heart.'
Finally grasping the lines and shouting
sharply to the horse, we shot.aivsy,

Ai the road struok the river bank, it tented
shortly almost on the brink of a fearful' pree
ipiee. Hero i was a new danger It was a
difficult pined, and there was not only danger
of upsetting, bat
,of being hurled into 'the

There was a path across this angle of land
where logs 1141'1:leen drawn out It vae', a
mile nearer this way to a death*, than by
the river. But I durst not attempt it with a
sleigh. I
On WO sped. That infornal)paoli, nook and
neck with us, , and now and then, jaws shutting
like steel-traps, close to our persons. Once
around that angle, and I should hope.
How madly I shouted to the noble brute.-
-We neared the turn in-that-race for life.
Heavensl the infernal devils•-had crossed
ahead and hung in deep masses, A demon
instinct seemed to positess them.
." A few rods more: The ivolvm; seemed to
.feel that we had a chance, for they howled
more devilish time ever.
With a sweep the horse turned in spite of
me. The left runner struok high on the roots
of a pine, and the sleigh -swung over like a
flash, burying us in the new • snow, Away
sped the horse, and my heart sank as I heard
his quick footsteps, flying out towards home.
Thu-maddened pack had followed the horse;
and shot by us as we 'were threwn out upon
the bank for a number of rods.
A shriek from Carry arrested them in their
career; in en instant they wero upon us. I
gave one long, desperate shout, in the hope of
arousing the folks in the (lbino. I had no
time to-shout again. Their hot bronth burned°
upon me, and , ; their dark masses gathered
around like the shadows of doom. •
With a broken limb, I wildly kept them nt
bay for a moment, but fiercer and closer surged
the gnashing teeth. Carry lay imionsible on
the ground before me. There was one more
chance. A stunted pine grow upon the_ outer
edge of the bank, and shot out nearly hori
zontally over the river below, fulra hundred
foot from the surface.'
Dashing madly in their teeth with my cud
gel, I yelled with the waning: - eMergy of de-
Spair; grasped Carry with one arils, and dash
ed recklessly out upon the pine; I thought
not of the danget.—l cared.not—Lbraved ono

I turned my head, and Clod of mercy !'

her and remain upon tlte•slippery trunk, I
turned to face the wolf—he was within reach

hand brushed his. head. With a demoniac
growl ho fastened on the shoulder of Carry,
Oh! for help, for a weapon—foot hold on

wept, cursed, and pVityed, but the. hungry
devil oared not for CUII3OB or prayers. llie
cotnpanionswere' still hOwling and whining,-
and venturing out upon the piuo. I almost
wished the tree would gi'o way. The wolf
still kept his hold upon 'Carry. None can

my knotted veins. At . last brute, hungry
for hie prey, - gave a - wrenoh,' and nearly throw

insensible. Even the crunolung teeth of the
monster did not awaken her from the deathly
swoon into which she had fallen.

Carry's waist slipped froMmy aching grasp,

There 113 nothing that floats a man sooner
into thelide'of reptitation, or oftenei passes
current for genius, than what might be called
constitutional talent." A man without this,
whatever May Ito his worth or real powers,
will no more get on in this world than a leaden
Mercury will fly into the air; as any preten
der with it, and with no ono quality beside to
venom - mew/Aim, will be sure either - told - under
upon success, or will sot- failure at defiance.
By constitutional talent I mean, in general,
the vigor and warmth given to a man's ideas
and pursuits by his bodily stamina, by mere
physical organization. A weak mind in
sound body is better, or at least more profita
ble than a sound mind in a weak and crazy
constitution. How many instances I might
quote I Let a man have a quick circulation,
a good digestion, the bulk and thewn,and sin
ews of aman, and the alacrity, the unthinking
confidence inspired by these; - and without an
atom, a shadow of the menu divisor, ho shall
strut and swaggei and vapor and jostle his
way through life, and have the upper hand of
those who aro his bettors in every thing but
health and'strength. His jests will be echoed
with loud laughter,. bosons° his own lunge be

uttered them; while a little 'hectic, nervous
humorist shall stammer out an admirable
conceit that is damned in the4oubtful delivery
—vex haucibus &mit. The first shall tell a
story as long as his armivithout interruption,
while the Tatter stops short in hie attempts
from mere weakness of the chest; the ono
shall be empty and noisy and successful in
argument, putting forth the most common
place things "with a confident brow and a
throng of words, that come with more than
impudent sauciness from him," whilo the lat
ter shrinks from an observation " too deep for
.his hearers," into the delicacy and unnoticed
retirement Of his own mind.—Hazlill.
Of tho ninny 'amusing anecdotes of this no
contrio man of Roanoke, we do not believe
the following woe ever imprint:
Ho was travelling through a part of Vir
ginia in which ho was unacquainted. During
the mean time, ho stopped ono night at an inn
near the forks of the road. The inn kooper
was a fine old gentleman, and no doubt one of
the first families of the Old Dominion. Know
ing who his distinguished guest was, ho en
deavored during the evening to draw him into
conversation, but failed in all his efforts. But
in the morning when Mr. Randolph was ready
to start, ho called for his bill, which on being
presented was paid. The landlord still aux.-
\ ions to have some conversation with hinibe
gan as follows:
" Which way aro you travelling, Mr. Ran
dolph ?"
\" Sir I" said. Mr. Randolph, 'w , l_th a look of
tolled," said the landlord, "which way
you, aro travelling?" ,
"'Haim paid my bill ?"
" Yes." e.
~ Do I owe' you' anything more ?"
IVell, I'm gang just where I please—do
you understand?" •
I , Yes."
The landlord by this time got somewhat ex-
Cited, and Mr. Randolph drove off. But to
the landlord's surprise, in a few• minutes the
servant 'returned to Inquire for hie master,
whiellof the forks of the road' to take. Mr.
Randolph not being out, of hearing distance,
the landlord spoke at the top of hie breath,,
IMr. Randolph, you .don't owe mo ono oenti
jest take which, road you please." . — -

Well I have seen ypur friend, and find higi
robe exaetly what you .derdorbed him as be
ing—a humorist.• • He seems to. have imparted
much Of that cliaraoterlo everything around
him.... His' servants are all, admirably disci
plined to second his whims; and his very fin , .
nituro is, for the' most . part; ailaPted to the
mane purpose. This put mo upon my guard;
and theTre was hardly' anything in the room
that I did not touch with apprehension. No,
trick, however, was practised upon me; and,'
as I found subsequently, I was indebted for
such indulgence to one which was reserved
for mo at night, and which was- Ouch as
perhaps all my English phlegm would not have
enabled me to bear with patience. I escaped,
however, being But to tho proof by the merest
accident—the arrival of a poor Scotch survey-
Or, who was thought a fitter subject for ; the
often repeated experiment.
The 'Scotchman was treated with extreme
hospitality; ho was helped to everything to
excess'; his glass was never allowed to stand
full or empty for one minute. The potatioes
were suspended. not until, and only while the
cloth was laying for supper, during and after
which they were resumed with renovated en
ergy. Our entertainer was like .thelandlord
described by Addison: the liquor seemed to
have no other effect upon him than upon any
other vessel in the house. It was not . so with
this Scotch guest, who was, by thIS time, much
father advanced upon the cruise of intoxica
tion than half seas over. •
In this state lie was 'conducted to hie cham
ber—a fine lofty Gothio apartment, with a
bedstead that seemed coeval with the building.
I say seemed; for that was by no moans the
case, it being in realitY:a modern_ piece of
struature. ' was of dark mahogany, with its
four posts extending completely to the oellirig
of the chamber. The bed however was not
more than two feet from the floor, the bettor
to enable the•party to get into it. The Scotch
man with a good deal of assistance, was soon
undressed and had his body - deposited in this
place of repose. All the party then retired,
wishing him a good night, and removing the
candle for fear of accidents.
When the door was closed, I was, for the
first time; made acquainted with the • structure
of the bedstead, which our hoSt considered as,
his masterpiece. I.Jiiiialie7teuehing of a spring
outside the door, the bed was so acted' upon by
a pully, that ascended slowly and smoothly
through the four posts, until it came within two
or three feet o[ the ceiling. The snoring of the
Scotchman was the signal for touching the
spring, and he was soon at the proper attitude:
The servants required no instructions how td
act. In a moment the boom was in an uproar
cries of "fire! fire !" were heard in different
directions. A pile of shavings was set in a
blaze opposite the windoW where poor Sawney
slept. The landlord's voice was cotinually
heard, exclaiming, "Good heavens ! save the
y_oor Scotch gentleman, if possible ; the flames
have got into the room just under him
At this moment we heard him fall and bil
low out. A sudden silence took place : every
light was ex!inguished, and the whole house
seemed to be buried in the most profound repose.
The Scotchman's voice could alone -be heard,
roaring out in the high dialect of his country, for
At length, two of the men servants, inr , their ,
shirts, with a candle just lit, and yawning, Ds if,
just aroused from their sleep, criterod the room.
They found him spratvlini on the floor.
".Qll, dear sir, what is the matter with you ?',
"Matter !" says he; "why, isn't the house on
fire ?"
" , Not at all, sir."
"What was the reason of the . cries of fire,
then ?"
"Bless you, sir, you must have been dream
ing ; why, there's not so much as a mouse stir
ring, and his honor and the whole family have
been asleep this three hotits."
The Scotchman now gave up all credit in the
testimony of his own senses.
"I must ha' been dreaming, indeed, and ha'
hurt myself by falling out of the bed."
"Hurl yourself, siri—not much, I hope, the
bed is so low;" and by this tithe it had been
made to descend to its first level.
The poor Scott was 'quite confused; quite
ashamed at, disturbing the family; begged a
thousand pardons, accompanied the servants to
the door,°closed it after them, and was once
more left in the dark. •
But the Mit act of the pantomime was not
performed. The spring had been • immediately
touched upon closing the door; and the bed was
soon beyend the reach of our guest. We could
hear him groping about, and uttering frequent •
ejaculations of astonishment. Ho easily found
the bed-post, but it was in vain he could en
deavor to get in. He moved his hands up and
down His - legs were often lifted by way of
stepping in, but always encountered the floor
upon its descent. He uttered exclamations of
surprise, not loud, but, deep, for fear of again
disturbing the family. Ho concluded himself
to be in the possession of some evil spiiit.•
In short, when it was found by his', Silence,
that he had given Witte teak as hopeless, and
had disposed of himself upon one of the elmirs, 4
