In the blue sky thy voice is deliend elem.;
And the free brooks hove songs to bless thy reign,

Far through the chambers of 'the peaceful skies,
Where the high fount of Summer's brightness
Over the mountain whet, see where they come;
Storm-elnud and wintry wind welcome them home;
Yet, where the sounding gale howls to the sea,
There their song peals along, deep toned and free;

Alcott is your favorite—nay! y. cannot deceive

we have described her. Gifted with high animal
spirits, a good lieprt, warm impulse., and considera

most faultless being but for the unhappy faculty
she hail imbibed, of taming into ridicule every per
son awl thing" she met with. Scarcely the members
of her own fatuity escaped her witty longue. We
have seen that even her favored tovedstiffered under
its lash. Indeed, as if to take revenge for having
tort her heart, Kato was especially severe on him
who had won it. Th, tact is, she was so fond of
mystifying—or quizzing as she called it—that she
made it a point to say things of George which no
lady could be suspected of saying against tha num
'Dear Kate,' said Agnes again to her, a few days
after the preceding coneensution, 'you really roust

And there's an end coil

otherwise I will take to quizzing you, and every
body else most unmercifully. The fact is, he serves
as a sort of safety valve to mit—as long so I can
hove hire to ridicule, you ere all safe—but, forbid

oevele things Which often came to his ears as having
been said of hint by Kcte. Ho won too proud to
remonstrate. but he showed by trio mariner how
much he was hurt. At such times, by a few con
cessions, Kate would restore him to good humor;
but, [whim., on the very next day, she would com
mit her old fault again.
.Ah! Katrl, you are found out at last, sly as you
have been,' said ode of her companions to her.
'You are engaged to George Alcott—you need'itt
curl your lip, for you can't deceive me any longer—
I had it from his own sister.'
Now if there waa any ane whom Kate wicheil to
conceal her engagement from, it was this gostipimr
girl, who had often annoyed her excessively by try

Wharton once became acquainted with her engage

could not control himself sufficiently for this; and,
aware that violence of tune or gesture would only
make him a laughing stock; he tamed on his heel
and left the npartment.
Once in his own room, however, he became
calmer. Yet this indignation against Kato did not
decrease, for. this Jest insult was the drop that made
the cap run over. lie felt dint he had borne much
