I saw a tear-drop on a flower,
At dawn of earliest day ,
The sunbeams came on field and bower,
And melted it away.
And thus thy smiling one was here,
Till angels saw its charms ,
When straight descending to our sphere,
They took it to their aims.
I saw a rose-bud opening fair,
In beauty's loveliest dyes;
A zephyr came its sweets to bear
In fragrance to the skies.
And thus thy blossoming cherub smird,
To each a moment given:
Till virtue claimed her favorite child,
And took it up to !leaven.
I saw a rainbow sweetly bent
O'er mountain kill and plain ,
It fled—l knew not where it went—
But soon it came again.
And thus shall friendship's sundered ti es,
With joy again unite,
And love advance, in kindlier skies,
To more refined delight.

Internal Improvements—Broad Top
Rail Road
During the past session of our Legis
lature, an act was passed for the incor
poration of a company to construct a'
railroad from near Drake's Ferry to
Broad Top, with power to continue the
same in the direction of Bedford. Books
for the subscription of stock to said com
puny are now being opened, affording
an opportunity for profitable investment,
and placing it in the power of our citi
zens generally to aid in advancing the
prosperity of the county.
The importance of this enterprise can
not be overrated, when we take into
consideration the great quantity as well
us the superior quality of the coal thus
to be reached—its proximity to the Eas
tern markets—and the great increase of
wealth within our limits, which must
necessarily result from the full devel
opement of our resources. That the
work, when completed, will be profit
able, there cannot possibly remain a
doubt, when we look at its numerous
advantages, and the great increase in
the coal trade of Pennsylvania within
the last few years.
If an inferior article of coal, mined
under many disadvantages, and trans
ported from ten to sixteen miles over
railroad to the canal at Hollidaysburg,
can reach the Eastern markets and re
alize a profit, most certainly a superior
quality of coal, delivered on the canal
some sixty miles nearer market, will not
only find ready sale at fair prices, but
from the great demand, will cause such
an amount of transportation on this road
as will render the stock much more pro
fitable than any other work of the kind.
That such would be the fact, it is only
necessary to observe, that the Broad
Top coal can also reach market in a
much shorter distance than that of
Queen's Run, or any other bituminous
coal in the state. The road therefore,
will not only pay larger dividends, but
in a very few years will pay the entire
That this is not an extravagant esti
mate, an examination of the rates of toll
allowed, and the quantity of coal likely
to be transported over the road, will
fully demonstrate.
From the Reports of the Canal Com
missioners it will be seen, that there
was shipped from Hollidaysburg, in the
year 1844, 19 000 Tons Coal.
1845, 9.5 300 " "
1846, 35 000 "
1847, 46 000 "
To which add about 10 000 tons, the
amount of bitumi►wus coal sent from
the West Branch, and we have for the
past unfavorable season, 56 000 tons
from these two places alone. From the
great increase in the trade thus exhib
ited, and the quantity now actually ship
ped, we may safely conclude that from
the same places, there will be forward
ed the present year, more than one hun
dred thousand tons ; which quantity
would be doubled could it be mined and
delivered as has been observed. The
Broad Top coal is not only much nearer
market, but is also of such a superior
quality, that not only this entire quan
tity would be furnished here, but this
coal would also successfully compete
with the Picton coal note imported in
such quantities. Say then that there is
transported over this road in one sea
son one hundred thousand tons, which
at the rates of toll allowed by the char
(three cents per ton per mile, on a
road say 20 miles in length) would
amount to $6OOO. From which deduct
annual repairs, say $lO 000, leaving
for the use of the road alone, fifty thou
sand dollars on the investment of $200,-
000, or twenty-five per cent. interest.-
The only question then is, whether
there is sufficient quantity of coal in
Broad Top to justify such an expendi
ture to reach it. To those acquainted
with the Conl Basin of Broad Top—the
numerous veins underlaying each other
—their extent and quality—this is read
ily answered. A coal field some fifteen
miles long, and from six to ten miles
wide, embracing about one hundred
square miles; and from the best data,
containing throughout, three or four
veins of different degrees of hardness,
from three to eleven feet in thickness,
peculiarly adapted to mining, cannot
possibly be consumed for many years,
but will continue an increasing source
of wealth to the entire country.
Why then should the rich treasures
of this region be permitted to lie dor
mant, when the amount thus concealed,
if fully developed, would add more to
the wealth of our county than its entire
present assessed value'! Certainly ev
ery one desirous of the prosperity of
our county—every one desirous of ma
king proper use of the resources nature
has lavished upon us, will subscribe lib
erally to the work, and thus assist in
raising our county to that proud emi
nence nature has so well qualified her
to fill.
That those of small means as •aell as
06 capitalist, might be enabled to take
share in the stock, without being depri
ved for a time of the benefit of his mo
ney, the charter makes provision for
the payment.of six per cent. interest on
the amount paid in until the road is
completed—making the investment a
good one from the start, as it will assu
redly continue. S.
In a private letter from a distinguish
ed lady correspondent, we find the rela
tion of one of themost thrilling incidents
we have ever met with in romence or
in history; and acting upon the discre
tionary power our fair friend has given
us, we lay the little drama before our
readers, suppressing the name of its in
voluntary hero:—
Captain H., of the English navy, had
been spending a few days in London, on
his return from the station. The crew
of his vessel had been paid off at Dep
ford : and having spent with a friend the
evening preceding the day fixed for his
departure for Plymouth, where his family
resided, he had started to return to his
lodgings at an advanced hour of the night
The moon was beautifully clear, the air
sharp and bracing; and thinking over
his plans for the morrow, H. was wal
king briskly, when his attention was at
tracted by the sight of a female, elegant
ly dressed, standing at the door of a
handsome house. He was passing on,
however, when she came hastily up to
him and addressing him as 'captain,' de.
sired he would step in for a moment, as
she had something to. communicate to
him. The woman was singularly beau
tiful, her language refined, and her dress,
as I said before, extremely elegant. Sai
lors arc not apt to be over scrupulous,
and H. was not proof against temptation.
He entered the house, ascended the
stairs, and followed his conductress in
to what appeared to be, by the light of
the moon that streamed in at the win
dows, a large and well furnished apart
ment. 'Pray be seated,' said she, will
return immediately with a light.' As
she closed the door, 1 - 1. thought he heard
her turn the key. He took little notice
of this seemingly trifling incident, but
ascribed it to her fear of his leaving the
room before she returned, and amused
himself in the mean while by examining
the contents of the apartment. Facing
the wiiidows stood a French bedstead; H
approached it, and mechanically threw
open the curtains that nearly concealed
it. The opera air he was humming died
on his lips, and the warm blood curdled
in his veins, at the sight which met his
horror-struck gaze. The bright beams
of the moon shone full on the body of an
officer attired in his regimental, and
whose throat was cut from car to ear!
The blood was fresh, and still streaming
from the hideous gash, and the_ eyes
wide open and glaring upwards. H. stood
petrified for a few seconds; at length,
summoning resolution, he streched out
his hand, and touched the face of the
corpse: the body was still warm!—The
truth flashed upon his mind—the girl
had locked him in, and was gone for of
ficers of the police to arrest him, for the
deed she had doubtless herself commit
ted, He rushed to the door, anti set all
the strength of a desperate man to force
it open; but it resisted his efforts. What
should lie do! Time was flying fast,
and the next moment might see him
thrown into prison, and awaiting the
ignominious sentence which would doom
him to the death of a felon. Appearan
ces would inevitably condemn him; and
as these thoughts rose up before him,
though a man of noted intrepidity, his
presence of mind seemed totally to fail
him in this great emergency. In a state
of mind bordering on distraction, he
threw open the window, and measured
the distance tothe — grotitid. -- The room 1
was situated in the second story, and
death seemed inevitable if he adopted
that mode of escape; still death and what
was far worse, disgrace, awaited him if
lie remained, and goaded by this dread
ful idea, he sprang into the street below.
Strange to say, h alighted on his feet
totally unharmed. Scarce pausing to
congratulate himself on his good fortune,
ho dashed forward with the speed of a
deer, and never stopped to take breath
until lie reached his lodgings. On the
following day he started for Plymouth,
vowing to observe more prudence in fu
ture, ere he accepted the invitations of
unknown women.--Some days after, he
read in the London papers an account of
the murder, and the testimony of the
girl, accusing a man of doing the
deed, who probably had made his
escape during her absence. The sequel
of the affair never came to his ears, as he
again left England a short time after; but
he kept his own counsel, and never men
tioned his narrow escape for sonic years
when lie related it to a relation of mine
from whom I in turn had the story—
Home Journal.
On Friday evening, Mr. Jabez In
wards, agent of the National Temperance
Society, delivered the first part of his
celebrated lecture, entitled, 'Alcohol a
prisoner at the Bar,' at the Southampton
Polytechnic Institution, which was crow
ded on the occasion by a highly respec
table audience, who paid the most mar
ked attention to the evidence adduced
against the prisoner. The indictment
preferred against him contained the fol
lowing charges, viz.: that he was a thief.
a deceiver, a traitor and a murderer. It
was proved that as a thief he has robbed
England of its moral glory, in as much
as at the present tinie we are considered
to be the most drunken country in the
world. He has stolen, and is stealing,
money from the pocket, health from the
body, and peace from the mind. In ma
ny instances lie hass tolen hope front the
soul, and hastened it down to eternal woe.
As a deceiver, ho is mighty in his influ
mice ; in all ages he has led the peo
ple astray : lie has deceived Kings, war
riors, bishops, and clergymen, of all de
nominations; lie has deceived merchants
and tradesmen ; lie deceives also, the
moderate drinkers, who foolishly believe
that Alcohol imparts strength. As a
traitor, he marches through this country
with six hundred thousand drunkards at
his heels, and is continually carrying on
a warfare against the good order and
peace of society. He arms his victims
with the implements of rebellion; they
fill the air with vile imprecations, and
impart an influence which is destructive
to thousands. As a murderer, the evi
dence was very clear. A great many of
the murders committed in this country
are committed under his influence. He
fills the soul with desperate designs, and
madly leads his victims on, until they
are guilty of the foul deed of murdering
their fellow-men. He was also proved
to be a murderer, in as much as many
are slain by his own direct fiery influence
upon the physical system. This is but
a brief outline of the indictment, after
which the following witnesses were call
ed to speak against the prisoner at the
bar:-Ist. The Bible, the evidence of
which went to prove that Alcohol was
an enemy of man. Noah's intemperance
was cited against him, and the influence
he possessed in causing the ptophets
and the priests to err. The names by
which he is known in the Bible, are
'a mocker, a serpent, an adder,' &c., and
the command of the Bible is, 'Look not
upon the wine when it is red.' Minis
ters were then called upon to give evi
dence. Their declaration against the ,
prisoner were of an appalling nature.
They spoke of the mighty doings at home '
and abroad—how he curses the people
by land and by sea—how he retards the
progress of the Gospel, and how even
many ministers have fallen by his pow
er. The Christian Professor was then
called upon, who stated that Alcohol
caused thirty thousand Christian Pro
fessors to backslide from the Church ev
ery year—that some of those with wem
once his Christian friends were now the''
inmates of the public house, and were
singing the songs of Baehus. History
was then called upon, and gave evidence
to the following effect :—That Alcohol
in all countries end all climes, had been
an enemy to man. He told us of Alex
ander the Great, who killed Clitns, his
best friend, under its influence, and hew
that great man died at the age of 33 in
consequence of Alcoohol. It told us of
the intemperance in ancient Greece and
Rome, and came down to the later peri ,
od, faithfully assuring the jury thatthe
prisoner is a continued foe to men: His
tory told of Shakespeare's being injured
by it; of Byron's intemperance; of poor
1 Burns, who was reduced to poverty; and
of Sheridan, whose once glorious sun
shone brightly, but who fell a victim to
the prisoner, Alcohol. The Physician
then proved that Alcohol was a poison
which sprang out of veg►table death ;
that it was an enemy :o the physical
system. And at last the Poor Drunk
ard gave evidence against the destroyer;
this was a very solemn part of the meet
ing, and the attention was profound.
He spoke of his fathers embrace and his
mothers care, and referred to the time
when his character was unsullied, and
his hopes bright ; but Alcohol met him
in the days of his youth, and for a time
he was strictly moderate, but at length
he fell, and in that fall he seperated him
self from all that was good; he had ruin
ed his children, and broke the heart of
his wife. He stood before them as a rep
resentative of 60,000 of his miserable
fellow sufferers—and he solemnly char
ged all Isis disease and wretchedness to
Alcohol—the prisoner at the bar. This
closed the evidence for the prosecution,
with which the first lecture terminated..

Death's Visit to the Village.
They say that people live longer in the
country than in the town, and perhaps
they ►nay a few short years ; but be not
deceived, by the sayings of Inv country
friends, for the word of the Eternal is
gone forth : " The days of our years are
threescore years and ten ; and if by
reason of strength they be four score
years, yet is their strength labor and
sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we
fly away." Ps. xc. 10. Neither town
nor country can prevent the visits of
Death came up the village. It was in
the spring; the fresh leaves were bud
ding forth, and the snow drops were
peeping out of the ground. He went
into the thatched cottage, by the ash
tree, where sat old lodger Gough, in
his arm chair, with his brow wrinkled
and his hair white as flax. Roger was
taken with the cramp in the stomach,
and soon ceased to breathe. " W hat
nun is he that liveth, and shall not see
death ? shall he deliver his soul front the
hand of the grave?" Ps, lxxxiv.,LS.
The wheelright's wife sat with her
baby, her first born in her lap. It smi
led as it lay asleep, and breathed softly.
The mother went on mending stockings,
every now and then casting a fond look
at her little treasure. That day a week
its gentle spirit departed, leaving its fond
parents half heart-broken. How uncertain
is human life ! It is even a vapor that
appeared' fur a little time, and then van
ished' away." James iv. 11.
Death went down the village in the
summer. The heavens were bright with
sunbeams, and the earth scented to smile
—the gardens: were in their glory, and
merry haymakers were busy in the
fields. The sexton's son had long been
ailing, and all agreed that he could ne
ver struggle through the winter. The
red tinge on his cheek was not of a
healthy hue ; consumption had Lucille' d
him for the grave. He had taken to his
bed for a fortnight, when his head tell
back gently on his pillow, and he went
of like an infant goipg to sleep. "As
for man his days are as grass ; as a flow•
er of the field, so he flourished). For
the wind passeth over it, and it is gone:
and the place thereof shall know it no
more 1" Ps. cii. 15, 16.
Butcher Hancocks was the strongest
man in the parish ; but he was no match
for death. His chest was broad, and his
arms were sinewy and strong, and his
frame bulky arid well knit together.—
"As hearty as Hancocks," was a com
mon adage. No matter ; sickness soon
robs the stoutest of his strength, and
pulls down the tallest man to the ground.
The fever fastened upon him so that one
hour he raged with heat and thirst, and
the next his teeth chattered with the
cold. His neighbors carried him to the
grave. " Lord make the know my end,
and the measure of my days, what is it;
that 1 may know how frail I ant. Be
hold thou hest made my days as a hand
breadth ; and mine age is as nothing be
fore thee ; verily, man at his best state
is altogether vanity." Ps. xxxix.l, 5.
Deatl► crossed the village n► autumn.
The orchard trees were bending beneath
their load, the sickle was at work among
the wheat, and the scythe was sweepine•
down the barley. Never was known a
more abundant year. The loaded teams
were seen in all directions, and the glean
ers were picking up the shattered cars
from the stubble. Fanner Blount was
a wealthy man. Ile was in the field with
the reapers when he suddenly fell to the
ground. Softie said he was suddenly
struck by the sun, and others that it
was a fit of appoplexy,, but whatever it
was; Farmer Blount never spoke after.
YdU may perhtips have seen his tomb by
the stone wall of the church-yard with
the iron palisades round it. Truly may
each of us say, " There is but a step be
, tweeu me and death." 1. Sam. xxl. 3.
