The Sea Is up—the sky it bright,
breathe the fragrance of the worn—
I osors to feet this strange delight.
A peso* of being onward borne
T.. that far realm of lore sal light
That has no rancor, wor. or scorn
Whence comes this impale* to my breast
Rekindling thus hope's dreamy est'
Oh' is that mystic thought the host
Which only seems to Mag to die.
Time is a laid wherimei men met
The spirit of the battle cry.
If glory waits the brave, um go
Ambition, it may wreathe thy brow'
If eolaries has to strike a Mow
do statemass, ge, sad stoke it sew'
If track dentands thee let seem know

What thoughts are those that-eons ow woo)
Sweet day they're horn upon thy ibreeth'
Win they thus ballot trasqqa anon—

They respected my mother; and, though they

be became lost to himself and us)—and did all

gay and dashing, like some of her elder sisters.

"Names go by oontraries, my dear," said Mr.
Carlos. "Noah is a deuced handsmse fellow;—

"Oh, Miss Elinor," I cried, dropping a low
courtesy, "it is very kind of Mr Carloe; but 1

But I did look at Mr. Cotton He was very
attentive to me, and I soon thought him all that'
his master had said he was. I did not love him,
but I foolishly imagined that it was a he thing
to have a sweetheart, and to be married, like my
young mistress. And Noah Cotton was a farm
er's son, and better educated than most people
in our class. He had a good place, and was a
great favorite of his master, and could afford to
keep me- very comfortably So, when he told
me theeihe preferred me to all the girls be had
ever seen, and asked me to marry him, I said
that I would cowl& my mistress, and, if she ap
proved of it, I had not the least objection. Miss
Elinor was enchanted with it. She said it would
be capital; that we should be married on the
same dap, with her and Mr. Cur!oh; that she
would buy my wedding-suit, and the Squire
would pay the parson the foes; and that we
should go with them abroad, in the same capaci
ty we then held.
And it took place as she proimised I was
dressed in white muslin, triouneil with white rib
bons, and just one moss rose-buil:t u my bosom,
and another in my hair. .Nliss Elhinor put them
in herself; and then, 'when I was dressed, she
took my hands in herr, and turned we all round,
to see that all war neat and niee, and she kissed
my forehead, and said that I looked ch.oniing—
that any wan might be proud of such a little
wife; and she called her own bridegroom into her
dressing-room, to cotne and look at me heron.
Carlos seemed quite struck with my ap
pearsuce, and declared "that 1 looked as hand
some as my mistress—that Noah was a vett for
tunate fellow; and if he had not been T.,
marry his own dear Elinor, he would hart• mar

cruel treatment, but. she always excii-ed
and said that it was I that was to blame; that I

and that instead of conciliating my husband. I
made the breach wider by insults and reproaches,
and took no pains to please him; that dalee wets
to behave in the same way to Mr Carlo-, she
would not wonder at his disliking her
These observations wounded my pride I
thought them cruel and unjust, and I left her
room in tears. Mr. Carlos met me on the stairs.
I was crying bitterly, partly out uf anger, and
partly in the hope of making iny itiedre•km mirry.4
for what she had maul

him how I had been treated by Noah, and des

beauty; and not to care for what Noah or my

for me, which I was out slow in returning, and
we carried on our intimacy with such circumspec

eyes of my husband, and the fretful jealousy of
my mistress. The fear of detection made me ve
ry cautious in the presence of my mistress, and
more distant and respectful to Mr Carlos, while
I bore with apparent patience and resignation the
ill-humor of my now detested husband. For the
above-named period, both were deceived, and it
was during this season of crime and hypocrisy
that you, my son, were born. The startling re
semblance you bore to your real father did not
escape my husband'sobservation, and called forth
some of his bitterest remarks.
I, for my part, swore that the child was the
image of him; and in order to lull his suspicions,
conferred upon it the odious and hated name of
My mistress often visited my chamber during
my confinement. Once, she brought Mr. Carlos
with her to see the baby. "It is a beautiful lit

in his eyes, "the picture of Annie."
