The Village Blacksmith.
Under a spreading Await tree
The village smithy stands ;
The smith, a mighty man was he,
With large and sinewy hands ;
And the muscles of his brawny arms
Are strung us iron bands.
Hi, hair is crisp, and black and long;
Hit face it like the tan ;
His brow it wet with honest sweat ;
T 3 e earns whate'er he can,
And looks the whole world in the face,
For he owes not any man.
ek in week out, from morn till night,
You can hear his bellows blow ;
You can him swing his heavy sledge
With measured beat and slow, -
like n sexton tinging the village bell
When the evening sun is low.

Lock in at the open door;

And hear the bellows roar,
And catch thelurningspurks that fly
Like chaff from a thrnshing•flooi.

'AI, reader ! and thereby hangs a tale.'
It was a New Year's day in that far-fa
teed city of the West—even the New
'fear's day of '56. Since Christmas, min-
ter had set to in good old fashioned earnest.
Snow had fallen to the depth of several in
dies, and being firm and hard,,made ex.
uellent sle'ighing—a rare thing in the city
Indeed, ear winters seem sadly degener
stud of late, being much more odd and
tree from ,now, than the days of our fa.
thers, perhaps to accommodate thorn to
our failing health and strength ; for this
latter fact is ton apparent.
Yet this Now Year's day seemed more
a typo of the old titne. It was cold, yet
not too cold, and the sleighing was excel
lent. Everybody that had a suitable con
veyance, or could get one, even at any
price, out enjoying the rare sport ; on•
ly more keenly to be enjoyed for its
very rarity. It was indeed a gala day,
Aright and beautiful over head, brighter
and more beautiful still in the human hearts
beating so joyously underneath !
Earnest Hammond sal in his counting
room, busily engaged in attending to the
reception of a largo quantity of goods, just
arrived. He was young yet, but fast ris
ing in wealth and position. Born in the
East, he had brought with him all the ha
bits of strict attention to bwiiness which
there generated. While there was aught
of that to clam his attention, pleasure must
be waived. Therefore, when he did give
himself up to himself to his enjoyments, it
was with a double zeal. Naturally warm
hearted and impulsive, and social withal
as such - persons must be, lie keenly enjoy
ed society. And when he entered it, he
was ever a welcome companion, both with
his own and opposite sex. And now clo.
sing his books with a look of satisfaction
and relief, he determined to give himself
up to the pleasures of this annual gala
While business was pending he had
closed his ears and eyes to all else ; but
n•r.v ha could hot WI to irnr the twig*
stir in the streets, and feel that'while ha
had been engaged within doors, all had
been life and commotion without. When
he came forth the street presented a most
novel s;ght. A more motley, incogruous
lot of vehicles it were not easy to imagine.
Such lite and hilarity are always infections
and Earnest soon caught the spirit.
He inquired at several sniffles for a
sleigh. Not one to be had. Yet he was
not easily daunted, and, moreover, had an
unusual share of perseverance. He owned
one of the finest horses in the city ; of that
he was sure. He remembered, too, that
in a remote part of the stable, where he
had usnally kept him, he had one day no
ticed a pair of wooden runners. lie would
see if in some way a conveyance might
not be planned. His Yankee ingenuity
must be brought to the service.
He soon reached the stable. - The run
ners were found and in good order. But
now for the part. A hogshead that for
some reason or other had been sawed apart
and nicely cleaned, stood before him In.
stantly a part of it was upon the runners.
In a few minutes n comfortable sent was
added, and he was ready for a drive.
But notv arose another difficulty, un
thought of before. He must have a com•
panion—n lady., of course ; else half the
I enjoyment would Ito lost. But who would
it be ? Who would be' seen, even with
him in such 11 convey.ance as that ? Ex
case his vanity, render, mind. He knew
he was a favorite. Indeed, he could not
help knowing it. But this was a special
occasion. "All the world" was out. He
must see.
There were two or three young ladies
who had long claimed his special regard,
and he felt sure he was not ent;re;y
ferent to. them. He had even been obser
ring them of late, striving to learn the true
chaiacter'ot each. This he found. as gen
tlemen and ladies usually meet in city life,
rather a difficult mutter. How he yearned
to see thr mgh the false surroundings into
the true and inner life beneath !• Ile was
rather old fashioned in his notions, it must
be confessed ; hut he did care more. for the
real than the artilicial—more for the mind
and heart thnn the outer adorning. But
how would it end ? Would he be wiser
than his sex ? ft was indeed a difficult
question. but he did not quite despair
Ella Canybell had long been one of thi
first in his esteem. But recently lie had
thought her vain and superfic al, caring
more for the outer than the inner man, and
had been dauttous in his attentions to her.
