men that ever plunged into so abortive a revolution no
was that of 1858: •
Como to me, darling, I'm lonely without thee,
Day time and night time I'ni dreaming about thee,
Night time and day time in dreams I behold thee,
Unwelcome the waking that ceases to fold thee.
Como to me, darling, my sorrows to lighten,
Cocoa in thy beauty to bless and, to brighten ;
Comic in thy womanhood, meekly and lowly,
Cot* in thy lovingness, queenly and holy.
Swallows shall flit round the desolate ruin,
Tolling of Spring and Ito joyous renewing ;
Anti thoughts of thy love and Its manifold treasure,
Aro circling my heart with the promise of pleasure.
Oh spring of my spirit I Oh, May of my bosom,
Shine out on my soill till it burgeon and blossom ;
The waste of my life has a rare root within lt,
And thy tondo... .tone to itto coottolt can win it.
Figure which snores like a song through the oven,
Features lit up with a reflex of heaven,
Eyes like stiles of poor Erin, our soother,
Whore sunshine and shadows are chasing each other,
Smiles coming seldom, but childlike and simple,
And opening their oyes from the heart of a dimple,
Ohl thanks to the Saviour that oven the seeming
Is left to the exile to brighten his dreaming.
You hove been glad when you knew I was gladdened
Dear, are you soil now to hear that I'm saddened?
Our hearts over answer in tune and in time, love,
As octave to octave, or rhyme unto rhyme, love.
I cannot smile, but your cheeks will be glowing;
You cannot weep, but my tears will be flowing ;
You will not linger when I shall have died. love ;
And I could not live without you by my side, love.
Come to me, darling, ere I die of my sorrow,
Riso on my gloom like the son of to-morrow,
Strong, swift and strong as the words which I speak,
With a song at your lip, and a atnile on your cheek
Caine, for my heart In your absence is dreary ;
Haste, for my spirt is sickened and weary;
Come to the arms which alone shall caress thou;
Come, to the heart which is throbbing to iire,s thee
MR. THOMPSON'S UMBRELLA
"Augusta, I wish you would practise
Chopin's march. Mr. Thompson likes mu-
' Oh !' how sick I was of hearing about Mr
Thompson I My poor aunt, she meant it
very kindly, of course, but she little knew
how she made me hate those single gentle
men whom she so wished me to please. I
was an orphan, and had forty pounds a year,
and my aunt's annuity died with her; so I
suppose her anxiety to see me married was
both commendable and natural, but to me
it was dreadful. Moreover, perhaps because
I was a proud girl, and perhaps, too, because
I was a foolish one, the mere fact of a man,
young drftriddle-aged,— for only the old and
wedded were_ excluded,—coming to the
house on my account, made him detestable in
my eyes. I should not wonder if that were
not the reason why I pleased none. I wail"
said to be pretty,—l may say that now, alas I
it is so long ago 7 —but plainer girls, with no
greater advantages than I had, went off at
a premium in the marriage market, and I
remained Augusta Raymond, uncured and
unsought for. I did not care, not I. I
only lamented that aunt would worry both
these unfortunate gentlemen and me with
vain efforts to make them admire me, and
make me like them. She was my best friend,
however, and I loved her dearly. So I now
sat down to the piano and played Chopin's
march, and practised for the benefit of the
de \ oted Mr. Thompson, who was to come
this evening, and who little knew, poor fel
low, he had been invited to spend a week
with us fur the express purpose of falling in
love with his second cousin's niece. I hod
not seen him since 1 was a child. Ile was
a young man then, tall, dark, and grave, and
already on the road to prosperity. He was
a rich roan now, —at least, rich for such a
poor girl as I was, but lie was Mr. Thomp
son, and I hated him ; besides, ho must bo
old, quite old.
I thought of all these things whilst I was
playing, and then I forgot them, for the di
vine music bore me away, and music was a
passion to me then.
We lived in the country, and a small but
beautiful garden enclosed sit atti is cottage.
It was a low one, with broaa rooms, a little
dark perhaps, yet strangely pleasant. At
least, they seemed so to me. I dearly liked
the room in which I now sat playing. It
was our best room, but it was also our sit
ting-room. A central table was strewn with
books, some of which Were dear old friends„
and others wore pleasant and new acquain

Carlisle, Pa., Friday, May 18, 1866
" 1 Mita
and long as our acquaintance lasted I never
saw Mr. Thompson without it. Later,
when our intimacy had progressed, I taxed
him with this. "Yes," ho said, good-hu
moredly, 44 I confess it is my hobby. My
earliest ambition as a boy was to possess an
umbrella, and my greatest happiness as a
man is to go about with one."
Of course, we did not speak about his um
brella on this the first morning we "pent to
gether. Mr. Thompson raised my music,
and looking me full in the face, told me I
played divinely. Ho said it without pream
ble, and I saw ho meant it. My aunt was
delighted, and I felt pleased ; but, someh i ow
or other, I also felt that Mr. Thompson
treated me like a little girl ; and so he'did,
not merely then, but ever afterwards. Tire
some man! I lied thought him,old before
I saw him, and I could not make him think
me old now that lie saw me.
Mr. Thompson did not stay a week with
us, but a month. 9, that happy month,
with long golden day's aiid delicious even-
I ever forget it? If the wakening was bit
ter, let me remember that the dream was
Mr. Thompson was to leave us next morn
ing, and we were in the garden together. I
knew by this time how I felt towards him;
and, kind though he was, I doubted if he
cared much for me. And when he said,
" Augusta, I have something to say to you,"
my heart begun to beat. Ho used to call
me Augusta now and then, having known
no as a child ; but never had he said it so
kindly as this evening.
Ah, well I I suppose many women have
to go through the bitterness which came to
me then. Mr. Thompson had met my cous
in Jessie at Mrs. Gray's, proposed to her and
bee'. accepted. From the moment he men
tioned Jessie's name, I knew my fate. With
out seeking it, I suppose, she had ever stood
between me and every good. She had taken
the friendship of my best friend, the liking
of my nearest relative,- - 1 was nut really
my aunt's niece, only her late husband's,—
and now she had forestalled me in tge love
of the only man I had ever cared for. Surely
she was not to blame in that,' but, 0, how
hard, how very hard, it seemed to me ! The
nightingale sang in the trees above us, pure,
brilliant stars burned in the sky, the garden
was full Of fragrance, and Mr.- Thompson
went on pouring Jessie's praises in my ear.
She was so handsome, so bright, so genial.
and •so delightfully innocent I And what
do you suppose he told me all this for ? Why,
because he wantttl me to go and live with
them. Illy aunt's health had keen failing of
late, and ho was aware that 1 knew the worst
might soon come, so that ho wanted me to
be sure of a home. I burst into tears.
"My dear good child," ho cried, warm

" Pray don't !" I interrupted. I could
not bear it. The more lie praised Me, the
hinder lie was, the more I wept and felt
mi,erable. At length, at my request he left
me. I grew calmer after a while, and went
"Do play Chopin's march for us, my
dear," said my aunt. Poor dear aunt! she
wanted me to fascinate him to the last. She
little knew that Jessie, whom ;he disliked so
had been beforehand' with we there.
I played it, again. It, was the knell of all
my hopes. A gray twilight filled the room,
and they could not see the tears which flowed
down my cheeks. I played well, they said ;
and I beilovo I did. Something from my-
self was in the music that evening, and that
something was very sorrowful. Mr. Thom')

evening in the garden. "It would do John,
who was rather light, all the good in the
world." I could not bear it. I rose and
went up to aunt.
What news, aunty?" I asked.
"News, indeed!" she replied, amazed.
"There's Jessie going to marry my cousin,
Mr. Norris, old enough to be her father. I
wonder what he will do with the little

Mr. Thompson came forward. I did no

" Yes ; the same. Do you know her 1:
"I have seen her at Mrs. Gray's."
He spoke very calmly. I suppose he did
not believe it. I pitied him ; from my heart
I pitied him.
"Perhaps it is not true, aunt ?" I said.
"Not true! why she writes to me her
self,—there's hOr letter."'
I looked at him now. He was pale as
death, but very firm. Neither troubled look
nor quivering lip gave token of the cruel
.storm_within: 'Something . now called my
aunt out' of the room.
" Atigusta, may I look at it?" he asked,
glanoing towards the hitter, which my aunt
had handed to m 0,,;
I could not refits? him. I gave him the
letter. Ho read it 'through' with the same

I did not answer her ; I wont out into the
garden, and wondered how she had charmed
him. Alas I I might have Wondered how,
without seeing it, he had charmed me.
Jessie's marriage was a blow to my aunt.
She had always thought I should go off first.
She was also cruelly disappointed by Mr.
Thompson's indiffaranee, and perhaps she
guessed the meaning , of my altered looks.
I believe I got pale and thin just then. And

" I like it, aunt," I replied ; but 1 re

" Mr. Thompson liked it," she said, with
a sigh. " 1 wonder he did not propose to
you," she added, abruptly.
I was mute.
" I wish I had never asked him here," she
resumed ; I cannot help thinking—"
Don't, pray don't I" I interrupted.
She did not insist, but she made me go and
sit by her. She caressed ipe, she coaxed me,
and little by little she drew the secret from
" My poor darling," she said, when I had
confessed all, ^ he may value you yet."
" No, aunt, he never will. Taut pray do

and I will."
I spoke resolutely, and my aunt praised
You have always been the best of girls,"
she said, tenderly, and lam glad you have
had confidence in me. I did not mean to
leave home this year ; but now I will take
you to the sea-side. You must have a
change, my poor darling."
She kissed me, and I remember how calm
and happy I felt in that gray room, sitting
by my dear aunt's side, and looking at the'
starry sky. The nightingale was singing
again as nn that sad evening when I had felt
so broken-hearted ; tears rose to my eyes
when 1 remembered it, and his last kindness,
and try foolish withered hopes ; but the bit
terness was gone from my sorrow.
" You roust have a change,'' said my aunt
Alas I the change came with the morning.
My aunt was late for breakfast. I went up
to her room and found her calmly sleeping.
But, oh! too calm, too deep, were those
slumbers. The kind eyes which had rested
on ins in love were closed, the voice which
bud over opnbon in proien and nniloormAnt
was silenced for ever and ever.
I suppose it was cot Jessie's fault that her
isband was my aunt's heir-at-law; but I

rgive we, I fear I was very sinful during
o dark days that followed. I had some
loads who did, or rather who said their
best, but there was one who never came near
me, who gave me no token of his existence,
who had no kind word for me, who let me
struggle through my hard trial, and who
never offered a helping hand. He might at
least have written, have condoled with me
in my sorrow, but ho did not. And yet ho
was in the neighborhood. He was often at

so. True, ho had business to tralsaet with

and, perhaps because my heart was rather
full just then, tears rose to my oyes as I
thought of the fate that lay before him. I
believe I- thought of something else too. I
remember-a vision I saw in the burning

gone, when Carlo gave a short bark ; trie
gate-bell rang ; I saw a tall, dark form pass
across the window, and my little maid
opened the door, saying,—
" Mr. Thompson, ma'am."
I rose. He came in with his umbrella as
usual, and Carlo went up to him and wag
ged a friendly welcome. I could not say
one word. I was so dreadfully agitated I
felt quite sure lie had come to tell me that he
meant to marry Jessie, and to ask me to go
and stay with them, or something of the
kind. Nothing else could have brought him.
Or perhaps as Jessie had, no doubt, told him
that I was gone, he had, on learning the
truth, felt ashamed of his long coldness, and
had come to make souse sort of excuse He
made none; but he asked hew I was, took a
chair, looked rather hard at me, and with
out waiting for my answer, feared %that I
was not very well.
" Oh, I GM not ill, you know," I replied,
a little carelessly.
." I trust you are well,
He said he was very well, and he looked
at the fire. For a while we were both silent.
1 spoke first. My remark was scarcely a
I heard you were so much engaged that I
scarcely expected to see you." I said.
I was vexed with myself as soon as I had
said it. He might think I was annoyed at
his long absence, and, surely, was I not?
But he took my implied reproach very well.
He answered that he had, indeed, been much
engaged ; but that everything was over now.
Mrs. Norris, he added,' had left this morn
ing. My hdart gave a great throb; but I
" She left in no very contented mood, I
believe," ho resumed. "The balance in her

I would not answer that question. His
tone, his manlier, vexed me. Suddenly he
rnisod his eyes to mine.
Did such a rumor reach you 1" he asked
I could not deny it. My face was in a
flame. I believe I stammered something,
but I do not know what.
"'Even you had heard it," he said, looking
sea, cely pleased; " the world is very kind.
And you believe it, too I I had hoped you
new me better."
He seemed quite hurt; but I offered no
justification. Then he rather formally
asked to be allowed to mention the busi
ness I I scorned myself for my fo!ly, which
was not dead yet, and I bade him spunk.
Was I asleep or dreaming? Mr. Thomp
son spoke of my aunt, her love for me,
my forlorn _position, and expressed the
strongest wish to take care of me.
" But," he added, with some hesitation,
I can do so but in one fashion,—as your
hasband. Will you overlook all those
peculiarities in my temper, which used to
annoy you, I fear, and take what there is
of true and good in me? Can you, will
you, do this ?"
He looked at m.o in doubt. Ah I this
was one of my bitterest moments. He
cared so little for me, that he had never seen,
never suspected,_ how much I loved him.
'And - he expected me to take him so. I
clasped my hands and twisted them nerv
ously ; I could not speak at once.
" And you, Mr. Thompson," I said at
last,—" and you—"
" Well, what about me? Do you moan,
can I, too, do this ?"
"Yes; can you do it?"
" Why, surely,—else I had never pro
posed it." " •
He half smiled at the doubt my question
invited, "and he looked at me as he smiled.
Both look and smile exasperated me.

He spoke warmly:and a manly glow rose
to his face ; but I would not - give in, and I
;aid angrily, that I did not want to be tak
en care of.
"Do let us drop these Unlucky words,"
he i entreated ; "and to tell me whether you
will marry me, yes or no. Let it be, if you
like, that I want you to take care of me. I
am much older than you are, you know."
I don't know what possessed me. I said
"No." Oh how I would have liked to recall
the word, but it was spoken, and ho rose
with a clouded and disappointed face. Ho
lingered a little, and asked to know why it
was No a d not Yes ? I said we could not
be happy together. He bowed gravely and
left me. I suppose he was hurt, for he did
not add a word. No assurance of friend
ship, of good will, no hope that I would re
lent c r change my mind, passed his lips.
The door closed upon him. I heard the
garden gate fall to, and I left in a sort of
stupor. It was over. What madness had
made me banish him ? Every step took him
away farther from me,—never,--never again
—should we meet. Pehaps he would not
have left ine then, if I could have spoken

and you do not; because my love and my
pride would suffer all day long if I were
your wife; because it is easier to be without
you than to have you on these terms." If
I could have said all this, would our meet
ing have ended thus? It was too late to
think of that now, but it was nut too late
to suffer. I buried my face in tha pillow of
the couch on which I was sitting, and cried
and sobbed as if my heal t Would break.
Poor'Carlo's cold nose, thrust in ha - d
which hung down by my side in the folds
of my dress, roused me. I looked up and
saw Mr. Thompson. He was very red, and
• I have furgctten my umbrella," be
said, a little nervously.
Yes ; there it was, in the corner, that
horrible umbrella of his ! But, instead of
going to look for it. he suddenly came and
sat down on the couch by me I du not
know how I looked, but I felt ready to die
with shame. He took my hand and kissed
"My dear Miss Raymond," he said per -
suasively, " why should we not be happy
together? I cannot, bear to give you up,
indeed I cannot."
I looked at him in doubt.
"Then do you really like me? I asked,
"Do I really like you 7 Why, want else
have I been saving all slung?"
" You said you wanted to take care of me."
" Oh, if wo aro to go back to that—" be
began resignedly. But we did not go back
to that ; we went back to nothing, for a mis
erable girl suddenly became the happiest of
women. Still I was not quite satisfied.
" You would not have come back, if it had
not been for that horrible umbrennof yours,"
I said, with a little jealousy.
" Very true," he replied with his peculiar
smile ; " but I did come back, and I glanced
in through the wii,dow first, and saw you
h;air, g yotar raoo on that otrahion, and Carlo
looked at you as if he thought it strange
you should be so forlorn ; and so I came in
for my umbrella ; and, to tell you the truth,
I had forgotten it on purpose."
Perhaps he only said it to please me; but
as I looked in his faun I did not think so
then ; and, though years have passed over
us both, I do not think so nnw.
The Wheat Crop.
We have accounts concerning the condi.
tion of the growing wheat crop from forty
eightditferent points, embracing thirtxcoun,
ties in this State. The winter, no doubt, has
been very severe on the wheat, but it is gen
erally admitted that the crop looks much
better new then it was expected to
weeirs since. On clay sulk, un flat locations,
and on fields having a westerly aspect, the
crop is badly injured, if not entireiy destroy
ed. The northern counties send better re
ports than the southern, doubtless owing to
the greater amount of snow they had. iLal
arnazoo, St. Joseph, Branch. Calhoun,
Jackson, Lenawee, Monroe and Washtenaw
counties—all on the lines•of the Michigan
Central and Michigan Southern railroads—
send the most unfavorable reports. A vertigo
crops are looked for in Macomb, Oakland,
St. Clair, Midland, Shiawassee, Montcalini .
Ingham, and parts of Monroe and Jackson
counties ; and really good crops are oYpect.
ad in Lapeer, Livington, Genessoe, Clintbu,
Kent, Mewaygo, (hewn, Allegan, Burry,
Van Buren, Berrien and Cuss counties.—
Altogether nine counties report a serious
aegree of failure, seven counties auticlpate
an average crop, and twelve counties expect
really goad yields. Arayne, Eaton and Tus-
cola have suffered much, but are materially
improving. It will be observed that the
counties in, which the crop is most injured
are, with a' few exceptions, our moat produc
tive ones, while those reporting full crops
are in most cases those which ordinarly ex.-
port but little grain. Alter carefully weigh
ing all the information before us, wo ere led
to conclude that the aggregate wheat crop
fur the State fur 1866 will full below the
average yield of past seasons, though we
cannot think that the wheat crop can bo in
any way regarded as an entire failure.--.
