BY M.. FRANC. B. OSGOOD,
Gay girls are wreathing
flowers in their hair,
Fond lips are breathing
The wish—the prayer.
The revel I shun;
One stealeth after—
How welcome that one.
Far away gleaming,
The dancers flit by :
Here sit we dreaming—
Memory and 1.
Fair beads of amber,
She counteth the while,
In the still chamber,
With sigh and smile.
And as she telleth
Her rosary o'er,
Wild my heart dwelleth,
On hours of yore.
Some winged treasure,
That flew from my arms,
Some perished pleasure
Each bead embalms.
All hopes I cherished,
There find a tomb,
One by one perished,
In glory and bloom.
Sound harp and viol I
Spread the bright hours!
Life's sunny dial,
They count by flowers.
Ah! dearer to me,
One dream of the parted,
Than all their wild glee.
Still the past haunts me!
'Mid all hope can say,
Memory chants me
A lovelier lay.
A MELTING STORY
One wintry evening a country store
keeper in the Green Mountain State was
about closing his doors for the night,
and while standing in the snow out side
putting up his window-shutters, he saw
through the glass a lounging, worthless
fellow within, grab a pound of fresh but
ter from the shelf and conceal it in his
The act was no sooner detected than
the revenge was hit upon, and a very
few minutes found the Green Mountain
store-keeper at once indulging his appe
tite for fun to the fullest extent, and pay
ing off the thief with a ferocious sort
of torture, for which he might have gain
ed a premium from the old inquisition.
"I • say, Seth !" said the store-keeper,
coming in and closing the door after him,
slapping his hands over his shoulders
and stamping the snow off his feet.
Seth had his hand on the door, his hat
upon his head, and the roll of butter in
his hat, and anxious to make his exit as
soon as possible.
" 1 say, Seth, sit down ; I reckon, on
such an e-ter-nal night as this, a leetle
somethin' wouldn't hurt a fellow."
Seth felt very uncertain ; he had the
butter, and was exceedingly anxious to
be off, but the temptation of something ,
warm sadly interfered with his repolu
tion to go. This hesitation, however,
was soon settled by the right owner of
the butter taking Seth by the shoulders
and planting him in a seat close to the
stove, where he was in such a manner
cornered in by the barrels and boxes,
that while the grocer set before him
there was no possibility of getting out,
and right in thisvery place sure enough
the storekeeper sat down.
"Seth, we'll have a little warm Santa
Cruz," said the Green Mountain grocer ;
so he opened the stove-door, and stuffed
in as many sticks as the space would
admit ; " without it you'd freeze such a
night as this."
Seth already felt the butter settling
down closer to his hair, and jumped up
declaring he must go.
"Not till you have had something
warm, Seth, Seth, come, I've got a story
to tell you too, sit down now ;" and
Seth was again pushed in his seat by
his cunning tormentor.
" Oh ! it's too darned hot here," said
the petty thief attempting to rise.
" Set down—don't be in such a plaguy
hurry," retorted the grocer, pushing
him back in his chair.
" But I've got the cows to fodder, and
some wood to split, and I must be goin,"
said the persecuted chap.
"But you musn't tear yourself away,
Seth, in this manner. Sit down; let
the cows take care of themselves, and
keep yourself cool; you appear to be
fidgetty," said the roguish grocer with
a wicked leer.
The next thing was the production of
two smoking glasses of hot ruin toddy,
the very sight of which, in Seth's pres
ent situation, would have made the hair
stand erect upon his head, had it not
been well oiled and kept down by the'
" Seth, I'll give you a toast now, and
you can butter it yourself," said the gro
cer with an air of such consummate
simplicity that poor Seth still believed
himself unsuspected, "Seth, here's—
here's a Christmas goose well roasted
and basted, eh T I tell you, it's the
greatest eating in creation. And Seth,
don't you never use hog's fat or com
mon cooking butter to baste with—come,
take your butter—l mean, Seth, take
Poor Seth now began to smoke as well
as melt, and his mouth was hermetically
sealed up as though he had been born
dumb. Streak after streak of the but
ter came pouring from under his hat
and his handkerchief was already soak
ed with the greasy overflow. Talking
away, as if nothing was the matter, the
grocer kept stuffing the wood into the
stove while poor Seth sat bolt upright
with his back against the counter and
his knees almost touching the red hot
furnace before. _
"Plagued cold night this," said the
grocer. " hy, Seth, you seem to per
spire as if you were warm ! Why don't
you take your hat offl Here Jet me
put your hat away !"
" No!" exclaimed poor Seth with a
spasmodic effort to get his tongue loose,
clapping both his hands upon his hat—
" No, I must go ; let me out ; I ain't
well ; let me go !"
A greasy cataract was now pouring
down the poor fellow's face and neck
and soaking into his clothes, and trick
ling down his body into his very boots,
so that he was literally in a perfect bath
" Well, good night, Seth," said the
harmonious Vermonter " if you will go!"
and adding as he left, " neighbor, I reck
on the fun I've had out of you is worth
nine pence, so I shant charge you with
that pound of butter !"
A NEW ITEM IN A BILL,
Some forty years ago, while Jerome
Bonaparte was travelling through New
England-, with a large suite, he stopped
over night at the tavern of an avaricious
old fellow in one of the beautiful villa
ges in western Massachusetts. The
landlord was an Englishman born, ultra
tory in his feelings; and when he heard
in the morning, that he was to have no
less a person than a brother of the great
Napoleon, with an extensive retinue, for
his guests at night, his joy knew no
bounds. Extra servants were employ
ed in all the rooms, clean sheets were
put upon the beds, Chickens and turkeys
were run down, and had their necks
rung—in short, every preparation was
made to give the prince a reception be
coming his high rank.
Night finally came, and with it came
Jerome Bonaparte, with some twenty
friends and servants. Here was a wind
fall for the old tavern-keeper--here was
business for him. Supper was soon
served ; the distinguished guests went
to bed at an early hour; next morning
breakfast was prepared, swallowed, and
soon after everything was arranged for
their departure. There was one very
important duty still to be performed by
the tavern-keeper—the making out the
bill. Such customers were scarce—Bo
naparte seldom visited that section of
the country—and Boniface was deter
mined to make the most of the present
visit. He got along remarkably well
with the bill until he had run up to $75.
This was not enough. The landlord
could not think of letting the brother of
the greatest man of the age off short of
$lOO. He " figured" it over again, ad
ded a little here, and put another 4‘ ex
tra"there,but it only amounted to $BO.
The bill !—the bill !" was shouted in
his ears, but the bill was "not right" as
he viewed it. All was bustle and con
fusion. The French servants were ,hat
tering and bustling about—the carriages
were ready to start, and nothing was
wanting but the bill.
"Why for you no make de billl" ask
ed the cashier of the party.
" In one minute," replied the landlord,
scratching his head.
" By ar, you make him quick, or me
no pay," continued the Frenchman.
" Yes, yes, I hear you," said the land
lord, his eye glancing from one charge
Suddenly a thought struck him. A
mid the unwonted clatter, jabber and
din about his ears, he reflected that he
should turn all the extra noise and con
fusion the visit had occasioned, to some
account. The " item" he had so long
sought to conjure up was at length found,
and he immediately finished the bill
. To making a d--d fuss generally,
The paymaster glanced at the amount
—paid the bill, and was off instanter.—
Whether Jerome Bonaparte ever found
out that he had paid $2O for making a
d—d fuss generally about a Yankee
tavern-keeper's house, is more than we
can say, but if ever Basil Hall, Fiddler,
or Mrs. Trollope should get hold of this
story, they may rely upon its authenti
How queerly does a lady feel,
A walking in the street,
NN hen she's aware her stocking heel,
Makes visible her feet.
She lifts her foot up awkwardly,
And puts it down again ;
And tries to pass that none may see,
But labor's all in vain.
Noisy geese destroy all peace,
When cackling loud and often ;
And so girls do, when more than two
About their beaux are talking.

ING HEALTH RESTORATIVE VIR
SPRINGFIELD, Ky., May 14, 1845.
Messrs. Sanford ,Sr Park—Gents :—I
take this opportunity of informing you
of a most remarkable cure performed
upon me by the use of Dr. Wistar's
Balsam of Wild Cherry.
In the year of 1840, I was taken with
an inflammation of the bowels, which I
labored under for six weeks, when I gra
dually recovered. In the fall of 1841, I
was attacked with a severe cold, which
seated on my lungs; and for the space'
of three years I was confined to my bed.
I tried all kinds of medicines, and every
variety of medical aid, without benefit ;
and thus I wearied along until the win
ter of 1844, when I heard of "Wistar's
Balsam of Wild Cherry."
My friends persuaded me to give it a
trial, though I had given up all hopes of
recovery, and had prepared myself for
the change of another world. Through
their solicitations I was induced to make
use of the genuine NI istar's Balsam of
Wild Cherry. The effect was truly as
tonishing. After five years' offliction,
pain and suffering, and after having
spent four or five hundred dollars to no
purpose, and the best and most respect
able physicians had proved unavailing,
I was soon restored to entire health by
the blessing of God and the use of Dr.
Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry.
I am now enjoying good health, and
such is my altered appearance that 1
am no longer known when I meet my
I have gained rapidly in weight, and
my flesh is firm and solid. I can now
eat as much as any person, and my food
seems to agree with me. I have eaten
more during the last six months than 1
had eaten in five years before.
Considering my cure almost a mira
cle, I deem it necessary for the good of
the afflicted, and a duty I owe to the
proprietors and my fellow men (who
should know where relief may be hat')
to make the statement public.
May the blessings of God rest upon
the proprietors of so valuable a medi
cine as Wistar's Balsam of Wild Che
ry. Yours respectfully,
WM. D. BAKER.

Wild Cherry should be addressed io
