What is it that both spoil the fair adorning

When from her bed ahe rhea in the morning
To comb, and pia% and tie
Her hair with ribbons colored like the sky ?
Wbat is it that her pleasure digoonsposes
When she would sit and sing the - sin Uwa3y•-•
Making her see dead roses in red roses,
And. jn the dewfall gray
A blight that seecrui the world to overlay

What is it makes the tretabling look of trouble
About her tender month and eyelids fair?
Ah me ah me I she fools her heart beat double,
Without the mother's prayer,
And her wild fears are more than she can bear, '
To tho poor'sightless lark now powers are given,
Not only with a golden tongue to sing,
But still to make her wavering way toward heaven
With lindiscerning wing;
But what to her doth her sick sorrow bring ?
Her daYajhe turns, and yet kebps overturning,.
And her flesh; shrinks, as if she felt the rod ;
For, !gainst.her will, she thinks hard things con

Would, Lord, sho bad thy garment's hem to touch.
Haply, it Wae the hungry-heart within her,
The woman's heart, denied its natural right,
That made her be the thing men calla slow,
Even in her own despite. .•

Hnnassnuno, April 12, 1871.
A. Trip via Pine Grove to Pottsville:
Having occasion to visit some friends
in Pottsville, I determined to take a
new line of travel, as the old route by
way of Reading had become too monot
onous for my active imagination; there
fore I selected the above route as the
one most likely to meet the demands.
Leaving 'Harrisburg at 3:90 P. M., we
proceed up the Philtufelphia-and Er/e'
road to Dauphin, and turn - thence to
the right, through a gorge in the moon
tains. We were whirled rapidly. thro'-
their sinuosities and short curvinge, at
the great 'risk of being - thrown from
the track, or colliding with some pro
jecting rocks that almost overhung the
road bed. For a distance of twenty
miles, the country is a mountainous,
barren wilderness, houseless and home
lest+, save some small stations erected
7 by the company, which bear the eupho
nious names of " The Forge," " The
Tank," " Roush Gap"—but I could not
seplthe gap—" Cold Spring" and "Bear
,aap," until we emerge into an .open
country, and are suddenly greeted with'
.a !view of Pine Grove, situated at the
junction of two streams in a glen of
the mountains, presenting a thriving,
business like appearance, with many
fine residences, and large stone church
es; with spires pointing heavenward.
The afternoon was one of the most
disagreeable that Could be imagined,
the rain pouring down in torrents, spat
tering against the windows and rat
tling on the roof; and a person must
baie been in a very happy frame of
'mind, to enjoy the surrounding scene
ryor note many of the peculiarities of
the region ; consequently I determined
to return by the same route,, and, wea
ther, perm itt to make dottings by
the wayside. thriving at Pottsville, I
became the guest of Hon. James Ryon,
President Judge of that district, and a
more entertaining, hospitable• family it
would be hard to find this side of the
chivalrous South.
,Refreshed by a night's rest and tlio
good things provided at the table, I
prepared myself for an earl departure,
and with pencil and paper, a flask of
Schuylkill's classic Water, reduced in
the pioportion o one water to twelve
"old rye," (as I prefer weak drinks,)
• and with the goo -byes and Well-wish
es of my friends, I stepped aboard the
eight o'clock mo ning train for Harris
burg. For the fl t thirty or forty miles
there is nothing unusually attractive,
not until we pass the limits of Pine
Gtrove, and then, " Welcome, ye des
erts and ye caves ; my native land good
night." The weather was most delight
ful—a• bright sun overhead, and the
balmy breath of an April morning to
exhilarate the spirits; everything in
happy contrast with the day previous;
I entered into the spirit of the occasion,
with all the vim of a connoisseur.—
Mountains on the right, and mountains
on the left, the narrow gorge through,
which our road lay, beside a meander
ing - stream, was one vast surface of
rocks, boulders in forra, piled one upon
another, and 'Wedged together as if by
some great convulsion of nature. Stun
ted.trees, and some of larger growth,
were thickly standing along the entire
route, and thn great mystery to me was,
Where , couldi they spring from, and
'what supported their growth? as not a
particle of soil was perceivable to 'the
naked eye, and the roots wormed and
twisted around the rocks, and delved
between • their crevices in search Of some
small particle of mother- earth upon
which to feed their Blunted and shriv
•oiledi branches.
The 'mountains rose abruptly upon
either side, to the height of a thousand
feet or more, their sides completely cov
ered with boulders and stunted trees
and laurel,—a fit place for serpents and
vile creeping things to hold high car
nival' in. Upon two of the highest
peaks are huge masses of rocks, - piled
high above the mountain's range,' and
at a distance present an appearance that
strongly reminds one of apclent castles
and donjon keeps. With a very small
stretch of the imagination, (and I had
already prepared , mile with 'frequent
libations from my flask of Schuylkill
water,) I could picture the outlines of
some_ old baronial castle, with tower.
and, minaret, bastion and parapet, port
califs, moat and drawbridge, with war
der at the call, and walls with bristling
'culverins. I become enchanted with
the scene-:-I renew my acquaintance
with my flask— . l quote poetry,, again
wet ,my lips, and become jubilant ; I
.eee th . eold baron in his hall, his knights
and squires around him, his armor
hanging on the wall y and dew, in leash
es baying for the call. I see the ancient

To your - readers who have never at
tended a masked ball, X propose to give
a Short chapter of my experience. The
citizens of Harrisburg, not to be out
done by Philadelphia, determined to
give a ball that should outrival any like
occasion of ancient or modern times.
he selection of masks and apparel was
ma otn all the cities around us, and
represents elapses from the middle
ages to the present time. I had no in
tention of joining in the festivities of
the occasion, but simply to be a looker
on ; consequently about ten o'clock in
the evening I wended forth, solitary
and alone, to the place of rendezvous.
A fee of •one dollar gave admission, to
the hall, or the gallery of the hall, as
spectators were not allowed to commin
gle with the masked revelers( Fo r
some time .I enjoyed the burlesque/the
quaint features and wild antics of the
performers with some- degree of satis
faction; but after the first novelty of
the scene has passed, a person wishes to
come into closer juitaposition to the
phantasmagoria, or, as "A. W a r d"
says, becbme one of them ; and I being
one of those that constitutionally re
quire exercise, was not long in deter
mining a line of action. Proceeding, to
the dressing room, I inquired the rent
o f a suit for the evening, and being
sliewn several of different callings,
learned that I could be completely met
amorphosed for- the small pittance of
five dollars. Being of a romantic turn
of mind, I wished to appear before the
audience as•" Don Quixotte," that fa
mous knight of chivalry, in , search of
his lost Dulcinea ; but in my haste and
excitement I mistook the knight for
the squire, and jumped into the habili
ments of " Sancho Palma." Accou- 1
tred was, with all the lofty pride of
the ancient knight, and determined to
outriVal my_ worthy ancestor for the
price; leas ushered into the hall and
introdtteett-nk the name, style and title
represented in my regalia. Then com
menced the labors of the evening. I
was to succor the oppressed, couch my
lance in defense of the right, avenge
fanciednr committed Injury to females,
in fact to make their cause my own
and fight therefor, upon my honor's
pawn and spur of kingly knighthood.
My first experience was the protecto
rate of ancient "Queen Bess," who,
judging from her squeaking, piping
tones, must at least have passed her fif
ty brief summers in " Afric's sunny
clime." I don't speak positively, but
in defending her from the assaults of a
lawless banditti, I was getting the worst
of the bargain, until my laggard squire
opportunely, for once, came to the res
cue. I had had enough of " Queen
Bess," and, in a homely phrase, "shook
her," and sought honors in other fields.
A tall and queenly demoiselle, habited
in the somber costume of a nuu, atten
ded by a Francis Can monk, who was
constantly counting her beads and say
ing her " Ave Marian," seemed to me
an object worthy of my chivalry, and
I sought the opportunity of freeing her
from the meshes of the Romish Church
and restoring her again to her family
and friends. With all the eloquence of
an ardent admirer, I poured into her
ears an impassionate tale of never-end
ing love, a beautiful home in some se
questered nook, gladdened and beauti
fied by her presence, the singing of
birds, the sweet odor of fragrant flow
ers, the ripple of tiny fountains, the
echo of heavenly music, and, to con-
I elude the picture, the prattle of Juno
cent children, that would in time glad
, den our home and make merry the kive
longl day. This was 'too much ; I had
overdone the thing, and by her unmis
takable exhibitions of anger, I was
forced to beat a hasty retreat and seek
safety amid the crowd that thronged
the ball. My next encounter was with
`in Italian Countess, one who seemed
- to be more reserved and alone than the
great majority in attendance; and hav
ing learned by experience that discre •
tion was the b etter part of valor, I pro
ceeded to reconnoiter' the situation.—
My advances Were well timed, and , met
with reciprocatton. I could recall some
Latin sentences, learned in my school
days, which Were readily understood
by heil and we soon became the Romeo
and Juliet ofi the occasion. All was
bliss; and in, my,gladness I cried "Eu
reka.), We; anced together and waltz
ed in true Italian style, (I am a grace
ful dancer,) and all went merry as a
marriage bell. When wearied with ex
ercise, we promenaded on the piazza of
the hall. She was intelligent, and I
was literary. The moon was shining
in all the splendor of a full grown orb,
and the myriad of stars glimmered' in
the arched firmament. I gave her a
history of thoSe far off worlds of light;
(I had learned, it in Peter Parley's ge
ography,) and, the settled theory that
thpy were p pled like • our earth ; of
the Aurora Bo ealis, as an incandescent
light, Caused. b a rush of electricity to
the north pole and of the deep, dark
blue of illimi , ble space, as a halo of
i ,
rarefied atmosphere surrounding those
millions of worlds. Wrapped in these
ponderous reflections, she was a silent
listener to my abstruse theories. Be
lieving the ice to i 'behroken, I besought
her to tell me her history, parentage,
place of residence and future,prospects.
the answered , rue in`;some' :vague ex
pressions, not suitable, as ',thought; for
the solemnity pf the occasion, and soon
resumed her inexplicable reticence. I
could not endure the suspense ; the Ru

[For .the rgitator.]
At?. VanGelder :—.I will try to answer
youk correspondent " L. A. D.," aitbo'
I cannet - Vonclx for the - truth of all the
stories we raid, of ancient gods, heroes
and other mythological personages.
Nessus was one of the ancient cen
taurs, a race of giants, ,who inhabited
mOstly , mount Pelion, Thesialy. Nes
hOweVer,"was said tO 'save resided
on the hanks of the river Evenus, and
acted as - a kind of boatlessi ferryman,
carrying paSsengerB across the river on
his shoulders. This is about all that is
known of Nessus, except that he was
a very good natured giant, but unscru
pulouSly fond of the women, and ex
cept as Connected, with Hercules and
the famous shirt.
" t.. A. D."' doubtless ktuiws that
Hercules was a' giant also; but giants
are as apt to fall in love as small folks,
and so he fell , in: love with Deiatara, the
daughterof Bite - ohm, the jolly hod, and
Althtea, the daughter of an jiEtolian
king. I But aiDeianira was a very love
ly young maiden, Hercules had a rival
in the person'of Achelous, the god of a
river of the same name, and, of course,
in accordance with the custom of those,
early days,
they fought; Achelous was
whipped, Hercules married the girl,
the defeated rival changed himself into
a mad bull, came at Hercules with his
horns, and was again most unmerciful
-IST whipped.
The marriage, however, was most un•
fortunate for Hercules; for having ac
cidentally killed a young boy, named
Eunomous, he went voluntarily into
exile, in accerdatiee with the custom of
the country. Barefoot and alone, they
two, Hercules and his lovely wife, star
ted fora foreign land. Canting, in their
journey, to the river Evenus, Hercules,
like a good husband, as he was, hired
the centaur Nessus to take his wife up
on his and carry_ her across,
while he, with his bow and quiver and
other traps, waded across also. Nessus
having the longest legs got over first;
and fiom the verdant shore toward
which he was slowly wending, and
while still in the Middle , of the stream,
Hercules heard a hrill Scream, which
he knew to be that of his wife. Drop
ping his other traps,' he seized a poison
ed arrow, drew his bow, and shot Nes
sus through the body. Nessus, as some
atonement for the attempted outrage,
told Deianira that if she would save his
blood as'it ran fro his body, it would
ever after preserve the love of her hus
band, which, of eo rse, beluga woman,
she believed.
After this tiercu es achieyed a great
many victories, an among them took -
CEchalia, killed Etirytus, the king, and
his sons, and carried off his daughter
role. After a while, Delanirti began to
think there was a snake in the potato
hole, or, td speak more classically, - she
smelt a rat. About this time her hus
band erected an altar to Jupiter, on the
promontory of Hubcea, and sent home
to his'wife for a clean white shirt to
wear during sadrifice. Dolan ira t the
shirt of Nessus, whiCh she had stripped
off him - when he died, thinking this
would preserve him' from the love of
Hercules put on the sh irt furnished
him by his wife, went to work will?
will at the sacrifice, sweat profusely,
and 'when the shirt became warm upon
him, the poison penetrated all his limbsi
and caused him the most excruciating
agony. ' He seized by the feet Lichas,
who had brought Mtn the shirt, and
threw him headlong into the sea. He
wrenched off the garment, but it stuck
to his flesh, and with it he tore away
great pieces of his body. In this con
dition he was carried home, and his
wife, seeing what she had unwittingly
done, went and hung herself with her
apron strings.
Poor Hercules! He was carried up
to the top' of - mountCEta by - his own
command, where a great' funeral pyre
was built, hiixiself laid 'upon it, the pile
set on, fire, and, amid peals of thunder
and flashes of lightning, he was carried
up, mid clouds of smoke, to "h i g h
Olympus," where be was honored with
imniortality, became reconciled to the
goddess Juno, with whom he = had for
therly quarrelled, Married her daughter
Hebe, became the father-of a nice fam
ily of children, bad sacrifices offered to
him as a great hero, and was worshiped
throughout all Greeeei as a god.
That's all there is about it. Recol
lect, I don't vouch for the truth of all
MonAL.—Be careful to know that the
shirt is your own before you put it on,
- and don't always rely on the women
for the selection of your small clCibei,
I have known them to be mistaken,
though not often., Yours, (to.

,ElAtoi. of Agitator: --I was requested
iby several of the inhabitants of Tloga
.county to write to them concerning the
Western cil'untry, and I don't know o 1
any easier way to do so than to trans
mit aletter to them through your col
umns. I will commence by giving a
description of the country west °kin-
Chiliad. We took passage for St. Louis
from Cincinnati via of the Ohio and
Mississippi railroad. We soon struck
the southern portion of Indiana!, and I
must,sa3r it looked everything but invi
ting. Imagine to yourself a vast ex
-panse of country; interspewith
recky Wire - and wet, ma b y prairie
i rd
lands, which fairly make a p piton shake
with the fever and ague, ju t to look at
it ;'and Yon will have soil) just con
ception of that portion of I dianathro'
which we'passed. In orderuto give you
some Insight in the character
of the people who inhabit this section,
I would cite your attention to the fol
lOWing conversation, which love r
heard, in regard to a village, or rather
a station, called Seymour, whiCh 'we
were rapidly approaching. The parties
who were discussing the question, were
-two gentlemen,, one of them a citizen
-of Seymour, and the, ther agentleman
who was making some inquiries about
the place, with a view of stopping there
a few diva. The interrogator opened
(Tut on him in this manner :
" I understand You are a citizen of
Seymour ?"
" WoII, yes, I reckon I um."
" Whdt kind of a place is Seymour ?"
" Woll, stranger, it,ks a pietty rough
town ; money is scarce; there was a
man knocked down and robbed of five
cents recently."
- At this point in the conversation the
interrogator seemed satisfied, for he re
lapsed into a state of gloomy abstract
edness, which even the cry of Seymour,
as we brought up to the station, failed
to arouse him from.
We crossed the line of demarcation
between Illinois and Indiana, some
where In the vicinity of Vincennes.—
From this point to St. Louis the coun
try' was better for agricultural. and gra
zing purposes than any we had discov
,ered after tf
_leaving Cincinnati.. B ,t
there is just Ode . evil lurking through
,thii section of the Western country,
•and that's this: there is too much wet
and marshy prairie land to 'insure a
healthy atmosphere.
At last we arrived at •St. Louis, the
grand metropolis of th e southwest,
where we stayed over night, and in the
morning proceeded on our westward
journey,• by the' Missouri and Pacific
railroad. On our right lay'the bread
•and' tranquil waters of the Missouri,
winding its way along to join_ the
ther of Waters, the Mississippi ; while,
on Mir left loomed up high and rocky
cliffs. Here we are in a tunnel ; eve
rybody looks alike now for a, few. min
utes. Out of that, and away we go
again. This portion of Mistiouri is ill
ther unprepossessing, and remains so
until we arrive at Jefferson City. Af
te4 leaving 'Jefferson City we passed
over one hundred miles of as nice far
ming country as I ever saw, and the
soil is unsurp - assed l in fertility. If the
readers of the Agitator can find any
thing interesting inr my letter, why all
right; and you may! ; expect to hear from
me again soon. - 4 It. T. MARKS.
Mr. Editor :—The birds were flying
north ; so I followed them. But I was
sorry to leave so early. I wanted to see
your beautiful village when it had put
on its "spring fashions." It• seems
nestled down so cozily anyong the green
hills, I imagine it must IA a 'very plea •
sant place in the summer. When I left,
the robins and bluebirds were filling
your Streets with music a great deal
richer and sweeter than any that the
" Swiss Bell Ringers" could produce.
(By the way, I stood out of doolls for
an hour, waiting to hear their !bells
when they came into town, but did,not
hear them.) Ij
On our way out in the stage, We pass
ed along by the track of the new rail
road that is soon to be. I could seem
to see the old -iron horse, with his big,
sharp-eye peering around among your
hills. This says " progress."
But one thing I want to knov, before
I agree to stay long in Wellsboro: F an
you raise grapes? I can't liye without
grapes and the beautiful vine ;4ey are
to me the emblem of all grace / a n d
There were two things I wanted to
take with me when I left Wellsboro :
a pair of tame pigeons, that came down
every day to the door of the post office,
and Somebody's blessed " baby boy,"
But I suppose the latter " could , ut tee
had," anyhow.
I want to say to you privately; that I
like your paper, andi have said so to
others,`a good Many times. I ike the
tone of it. But I don't like a patter that
is too much like Mr. Beecher's dinnetr.
