YU beautiful hopes of Boyhood,
Where have be strayed away y
Gone, like the summer shower,
Passed like the summer day !
see your bright oyes glancing
' By tho brook and in the glen;
Ye beautiful hopes of Boyhood,
Come ye not back again ?
Yo beautiful hopes of Manhood,
Imnige of Boyhood's hour,_
I feel your warm breath on me,
And on its thr,illing power!
And I hear your angel foot-falls
In the breeze that fans me now ;
And the touch of your gentle fingers
Is the coolness on my brow.
All sue-light are,your pinions,
All golden is your track
And the silver of your whisper.
Says, ye are coming back
Here take this crystal tear-drop,
From purest joy distilled ;
0. beautiful hopes of Manhood,
My fond heart ye have filledl
You're singing your organ-anthem
In, the chambers of my soul,
And the musical waves come rolling
As waves of the ocean roll :
With snowy wings now folded,
Ooewith the syren-song:
Ye beautiful - hopes of Manhood,
Will ye not tarry long

The burning of the Steamer henry Clay, on
the ifudson river two years ago, is still fresh
in the minds of the public. The following
. thrilling
,sketch of the fearful scene we take
from a eliaptei in a new novel, "The Lamp
lightet," recently published. .
But in that hour of agony, the maid
Deserted not herself; her very dread
Had calmed her e and her heart
Knew the whole'horrors v and Its only part.
As Mr. Graham had, expressed in his letter
the intention of being at the steamboat wharf
in New York, to meet his daughter and Ger
trude on their arrival, Dr.-Jeremy thought it
unwessary for him to accompany his charges
further. than Albany, where he could see them
safely on their way, and then pronedto Bos.
ton with his wife over the Western Railroad;
—Mrs.-Jereruy—being•now impatient to Nreturn
home, and hoeing; moreover, no disposition to
revisit the great i rnetropolia of ,Nev York du

bade them farewell on the dock of one of the
Hudson river boats. "I'm afraid you've lost
your heart in,Saratoga; you don't look quite
so bright as you did when we first arrived
there. It can't have strayed far, however, I
think, in such.a plaoo as that; so bo sure and
find it before I see you in Boston."
He bad hardl3 , 'gone, and it wonted a few
minutes only of the time for the boat to start.
when a gay group of fashionableo made their
appearance, talking and laughing tot; loud, as
it seemed to Gertrude, to bo well-bred? and
conspicuous among them was Miss Clinton,
whose companions were evidently making her
the subject of a great deal of wit and pleasan
try, by which, although she feigned to be teas
ed and half offended, her smiling, blushing
fade gave ovidepce that she felt flattered and
pleased. At length', the significant
... gestures
of some of the party, and a half-smothered
hush -b! gave' intimation of the tipprotiolt of
some one who multi nit overhear their re
nrrks; and presently Itilliatn Sullivan, with
a travelling-bag in his hand, a heavy -shawl,
thrown over one arm, and his countenance,

the chagrin of the previous evening, appeared,

drawn over her. face, and joined Isabef,'plac

however, she was led to observe several.oir
oumstances, which excited so much curiosity,
and finally so much alarm, that, effectually
aroused her from the train of reflections she'
had been indulging, she had leisure only to
take into view her own and flmily'slyresent
situation, and its probable consequences.

the boat in .which they were passengers, pass

struction and epeed,liyealso responsibly charg
ed with busy; living freight, and bound in the
same direction: Occasionally, during their
headlong and reckless course, the contiguity
of the two boats was 'such excite the se-
ileitis alarm of one sex,' and the unmeasured
censure of the other. The rumor began to be
circulated that they were racing, and racing
desperately. Sornolew, regardless of danger,
and entering upon the interest of the chase,
with an insane and foolish excitement,, watch
ed with pleased eagerness the mad career of
rival ambition; but by far the majority of the
company, including all, persons of reason and
sense, looked on in indignation and fear. The .
usual stopping places on the river were either
recklessly passed by, or only paused at,'while,
withindecent haste, passengers' -were shuffled
backwardaand forwards, at the risk of life and
limb, their. baggage (or aomebody's else) uncer-,
emoniouely flung alter them, the panting,
snorting engine in, tho. mean time bellowing':
with rage at the check thus unwillingly
posed upon its freedom. Towards noon the
fever of agitation had reached its height, and
could not be wholly quieted even by the assu

pallid, and, as Gertrude fanoied, a little faint.

Emily assented; and Pin a few minutes was
comfortably reolining in a:corner of the saloon,
where she end Gertrude remained undisturbed
until dinner time. They did not go to the
dinner-table; it was not their intention froin
the drat, and, after the agitation of the morn
ing, was far from being desirable. So they
stayed quietly where' they were, while the
greater part of the passengers crowded from
every partoftbs boat, to invigorate theiriSOWeii,
