There was a world of music in my me tiler's deep sorrowful voice, and I crossed the room in twilight, and threw myself on a low stool nt her feet. The coal fire was smouldering in the grate. The carpet with its dark rich c•ilors, looked worm and condonable in the dim light, but outside the wind howled hurrying by. and unquiet feet of the wild November rain paced a round the old house like a sentinel. I had a long time been loved by one good and noble and more than worthy Ile was like some peel artist's conception of nor sing, with his cairn high brow, his clear blue e yes, and golds n tresses, There was an expression bold Rimless truth in his handsome features, and a look of loving tenderness about his pleasant mouth, Ile was all sunshiee, and he shone his way in to my heart. I loved Win though I hard ly acknowledged it to myself. lie was do ir, and I--I had but my proud ole name and the ruined mansion and the ousted patrimony of the race of Stuarts. Another lover Caine, and this one was noble. The gold lay yellow and deep and shining in his iron coffers, and the broad Lands that called him master, were green and fair. If Morgan Phillips was radiant with the beauty of morning, this other one, Hunt llennesiy, was the petsonification of some stormy night, not wet with rain of tears, but black, darkened and terrible with heavy tempest clouds, with now ado then a mar flashing through them like the gleam of a giant's burnished armor. [ loved *tint-gait Phillips, but Hunt Hennesly's wilder nature possessed a strange charm for my adventurous imagination. With him, I could realize every dream of my so dreaming youth—l could cross the Eastern desert, bivouac among the Bedouins, and stand among the ruins of Jerusalem, and weep over filbm grandeur of Greece and Rome—with hint I could float down the castled Rhine, look out on the stormy Ile. beides, and follow the track of the old florsemen across the Northern sea. With Morgan Pliillips what should I share 'Love,' answered tremblingly the low voice in my heart, and I saw a vision of peaceful home, where my presence would make sunshine. I twined the roses over the cottage walls and locked the blue•eyed children. bright with the golden hair of my lover husband, but the cosy tea table with its fresh biscuit and clotted cream, brought visions of washing dishes and scouring knives: the blue-eyed ones of my rocking, however fast the cradle jogeed, would cry, and arrant fancy turned with a sigh of relief to the other ,icture--the lul Irby of the peaceful Mediterranean—the summer isles upon her breast. Uncon sciously I said aloud : .1 shall be Hunt Ilennesly's ,' and then my mother culled me to her 41... I thought as I sat down at her feet hew beautiful she had been in years past, how bean tifol she still was, with her great sor rowful black eyes, She looked steadfastly nt me for a moment and she said hall sor rowfully : •My child, have you promised to he Morgan Phillips' wife ?' •No, in non, I am young yet.' 'Yea, very young: but if you have not promised, you hay,. let hint see for these many months that you loved him--that his presence at your side was we'eome.

The face that met my gaze! • as I stood before my mirror. was bright and bewildi ringly lovely. I had been educa ted in conventional retirement, and my heart was fresh and pure. I loved Benne you have never known such a passion It was worship—it was idolatry—it was the life of my life. And he [ loved was poor Allen Greame woe fatherless like myself, • but I was an inmate of his mother's cot. Cage. Very tenderly they cherished the orphan committed to their care. I knew that Allen loved me. I read it in every act; in the appealing tenderness with which his blue eyes rested upon my face; in the care with which he anticipated my wishes, and in the very atone' ians of -his voice as he addressed me 'But another sui.or came. Allen Gre nme had never asked my love, and I had never promised in so ninny words to be his bride, but for tunny mon' Its he had believed int. all li!s own. and yet when your father visited the cottage, his eyes sought my race with a kind of question ing sadness.

I coveted the proud rank of his wealth—the stately mansion and the old name It was a long struggle between bee and ambition, but at length I laid my hand in his. Scorn me, hate me, Heinle, I deserve it. I sinned willfully. I. new I did not love him--the henrt and =oil were long ago yielded tip in adoration of another—and yet I became his bride. 'Allen never reproached me, but the stony, hopeless sorrow in his blue eyes was more bitter than the most terrible words.

The ceremony was over. lie turned to kiss his wife for the first iliac, when a shrek rang through the church, a piercing, terrible shro k. Then there was a heavy fall Allen was borne senseless through the crowd. My husband might have suspected when he sox my anguish, that he wan mare than the brother I called him, hut said nothing. He even acceded to my wild prayer that our bridal journey might be postponed until he was better, and permitted me to be a constant watcher at his bedside. He had not long to wait. My beloved had broken a blood vessel in his fall, and the fourth day he died. I held his hand as he faded silently away. 'Katrine,' he said, looking mournfully into my eyes. 'Marine it is very tweet to die thus with you beside me. I am dying for your love. I shill be happy dearest, for an angel whispers you will he mine in Heaven You have never said you loved use, but I know it.

He looked at me with floods of light swelling into his large • blue eyes. Every moment he grew more and more beautiful, till I was frightened at his unutterable glory.

It should be the atm of oil true Chris. thins to make the hours of the lttbhnth day, a source of especial fthprovernent; and in what 'better way can we spend this time—when not engaged in public devotion—than by reading books which tend to elevate, and enlarge our moral na ture. Of the bodily exercise oecessary to health on this n+ well as other days I say nothing but refer to the leisure hours so often trifled away, or spent in perusing honks having no moral toiliiy I wits once iu company with a friend who when I come it, was engaged in reading a icily deeeritition of startling scenes of every day life which seemed evidently fictitious, and upon my objecting to it, he replied, Mr our pastor read it, and liked it, and surely t'is not wrong for me to follow his example, even in small matters. Ah. thought I example clamhes with precept when we are tune' to "remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy" yet shown no example of levity even by our precep tors. Let us now consider the effect of such reading upon ourselves. In the case of the Rev. spoken of I thought tt a poor pre, oration for the duty he soon would he called to perform—in delivering Gut's message" of peace upon earth, and good will to inan"—and in the other instance— like the waste of time in worldly officer. nation it consumes the hours intended for better purposes. Being such slave, to the vanities of the world, our inside are in constant danger of being led away from the contemplation of eternal realities. Though we may watch our thoughts with vigilance on this day they will not at all times he mindful of the Saviour but this may he forgiven if we by constant prayer. endeavor to lessen the fault. When we voluntarily break the 4th commandment we are not only accountable for the sin as regards ourself. but for the effect of our example upon those around us. (lin dren are committed to our care to be ..trai ned in the way they should go" and in the ••nurture, and monition of the Lord" and bow can we expect them so to live, except ri,--as parents or guardians—do an likewise? While no meetly secular book is suitabl • for Sabbath reading there fore, however good, or instructive tt may be—in a worldly 'sense--we should cast it aside on Sunday because our children— who cannot so well discriminate between good, and evil--may imitate our deeds, I and fall into error. The consequences we cannot foresee. Let us then avoid as wt. art• commanded to--every ..appear. once of evil." EDUCATOR, Row To LOADA GUN.-According to Mr Sutherland, the Richmond (Vu.) gun maker, you ought to try it repeatedly with chargee consisting of equal bulks of pow der and shot, till you come to a quantity wilh which the gun will not recoil, or but slightly. This will give you the proper quantity of shot. With this load however, the gun will scatt:r in all directions. To correct this, reduce the quantity of pow der untill you find that thr shot is carried . as close as you desire. A gun load‘ct thus will never bum. To mane it carry farther use shot of a larger size. No gun should he fined more than twenty times without being wiped oust.

Cut Feed for Cattle,—Solon Robinson reed a letter froin John Manross of Hills dale, Mich., upon the aubje.t of cut teed for cattle, which after speaktog of the din ! cussion held by the Club some weeks since upon the subject, in which was suited that portions of the straw and corn stalks were found to have passed undiges ted into the lower intestines, the writer ' , This may be true in part, and yet the practice may be good to a certain extent. ern in the ear may make very good beef, though part of it may pass through the animal undigested, to be devoured by some other animal lees fastidious; and the prac tice may not be very economical, but that dep ads somewhat on the price and ripe ness of the grain, and tilt convenience of grinding,. Whether corn is 75 cents or 15 cents I:er bushel is an important question in dispe:ing of the crop. It was further said in the discussion alluded to that woody fibre contains no nutriment, that nothing but worms can live on it The fact that worms and grubs do live and get fat or. . wood might seem to admonish us that ft does contain nutriment. Our corn-stalks here were cut rather green. and our little Wolverine children are frequently seen sucking the sacharme 'natter out of them. Our pigs. though in,good condition, do the saute. Feed is plenty here; meal and buck wheat flour can be bought for r cent a pound, and beef and pork four cents a pound. But molasses is 50 to 62 cents per gal lon. nod sugar in proportion, and so the children extract it from the cornstalks, which are said ro be unfit for food forstock. It is iru • th:it very ripe stalks, of straw or bay, coot tin less neutriment than when cut green ; vet all contain sortie neutri ment, if well preserved, Much depends no the particular objects in feeding.
