A MEMORY OF MAY.
BY WILLIE E. FUROR
The fields were white with the clover blooms,
And the air a-faint with rose perfumes ;
diad the blossoms blushed on apple-trees,
nd the robin's song was on the breeze,
And over the earth the robe of May
Was thrown with the tints it wears to-day.
tut clover fields and odorous air,
Though both were sweet and one was fair,--
And apple-blossom and sons of bird,
By me was scarcely seen or heard,
For under the spreading maple tree
My true-love sat and talked with mu.
No pilgrim I, to ruined shrine ;
A living hope and joy was mine;
And like the knights of olden time, '
I paid my sweet devoirs in rhyme.
The lady gently bent her head, •
And low, sweet words in answer said i s,
And thus our vows wore said that day •
Beneath the smiling sky of May.
And all our hours since then have been
A transcript of that sunny scene,
When hope unclosed, as roses do,
Revealing to our eager view
The mirror of the coming hours,
In sunshinNk robed And crowned with flowers
Low at our feet the passing years
Their argosy of hopes and fears
Have left ; but still our hearts are young,
And When the songs of youth we sung
And band in hand we walk to-day
And when, beneath the skies of May, -
In shade of maple trees we walked,
And of our loving future talked.
And now, in looking back, our eyes
See all these things, with glad surprise ;
And thus there comes, in sweet, array,
This loving Memory of piny, •

THE GOLDEN CLASP.
A modest looking and exceedingly pretty
young girl, plainly attired, entered one of the
goldsmith's stores on street, and seeing
that a gentleman was engaged with the propri
etor, she timidly shrank aside near the door
Until he should - be at leisure. The assistants
were also occupied with customers, whose ap
pearance showed them to belong to the class of
the rich, find .so she was suffered for some time
to remain standing there before she could be
attended to. The gentleman, who was a fine,
noble reeking person, with a remarkably pol
ished address; seeing her waiting, courteously
stood aside, and said to ihe goldsmith—
"Do not occupy yourgelf with me, Mr. Broch
ard. I can examine these watches by myself,
while you see what this young person wants,
who has been waiting so long and patiently to
get an opportunity of addressing you."
And thus speaking, the gentleman stood
aside from the showcase, on which he had been
leaning, to give the young girl au opportunity
"What do you wish, Miss ?" asked the gold
smith, with a look which conveyed a reproof to
her for interrupting him zbile engaged with a
customer of more value ffi him.
The girl ,hesitatingly approached the coun
ter, and taking from her bosom a small gold
clasp, bent over to him, and said, in a low,
"I wish, sir, you would be so kind as 'to
keep thisifor It few days, and let me have seven
dollars on it."
Low as she spoke, her soft, tremulous tones
reached the ears of Col. McHenry, the gentle
man who was present, and he turned to observe
her face, and hear the reply of the goldsmith
to this timid and painfully uttered request.—
The goldsmith took the clasp scornfully be
tween his fingers, and then throwing it down,
said sharply to her—
" This is no pawnbroker's shop, girl ; and if
it was, that thing is not worth more than two
"It is Of, iiestimablo value to ine l
deed, it is the ply thing valuable I have,"
answered she earnestlyoand her cheek slightly
flushed at the rude manner of his reply.
"I don't know at what you may value it,"
be answered, with ,a cold laugh, glancing at
Col. McHenry, whom be thought be saw se.
verely observing him, "I would not like to
give you six shillings for ,it
"Dut, sir" plead the giri, aueunsolous or
hoiag overheard, "I mut have seven dollars
today, and have ne Paler way of getting it,
and I was ia hopes', air, that you might let me
hava that sum on it; for I will Certainly come
back and take it up again."
GREENCASTLE, PA., TUESDAY, MAY 31, 1864
"I tell you," answered Mr. Broehard, an
grily, "1 keep no pawnbroker's shop. Go to
"They won't give me but two dollars, sir,
and I want seven."
"And so you think to get it out of me 7"
The young girl was about to speak again, but
as if not knowing what further argument to
urge, hesitated, and was turning slowly away,
when she checked herself, and again spoke to
"Sir," she said, in a low, thrilling voice of
earnest entreaty, "my mother is lying very ill,
and our rent is due at twelve o'clock to-day,
and the persons we sew Air having disappoint.
ed us in our pay, I have no resource but this !
Oh, sir, will you take the clasp only for a few
days, and then I will repay you ?"
Mr. Brochard felt that Col. McHenry's eyes
were upon him, waiting an answer, and as he
wished him to think him a man of business
(which meant, in his notion, a man without a
heart,) he answered promptly and sternly,
"No! Do you think we are simpletons here
to throw away money in this place ? If you
have nothing more :to say, please stand aside
for other customers.. Well, Colonel, what -do
you think of those watches ? Latest importa
tion—full jeweled, and warranted in all points.
I will sell you the one you just laid down for
one hundred and ninety five dollars."
The gentleman, however*, was. not • heeding
him, but watching the young girl whom he
saw leaving the counter, and with a heavy,
drooping step approached theTdoor. Her face
had struck , him for its sweet, intelligent love
liness, and. her modesty had for him an irresist
ible charm ; but her plea of poverty, and her
eloquent appeal to the tradesman, deeply in
terested his feelings, and enlisted his sympa
thies in her behalf. He-had silently observed
the progress of her interview with him, with
emotions of contempt for the one and pity for
I the other.
Her hand was upon the knob of the door,
when advancing towards her—
"You ask, I believe, for seven dollars ?" he
said, with a gentle interest in his tones that at
once awakened hope in her heart, and brought
the light' to her entand hue to her cheek, as
"Yes, 'sir. I would not have been so bold
and urgent, but"----
"None too much so. There is a ten dollar
note—l have no smaller bills," and he placed
it her hand.
"Sir, 'you are too kind—"
"Not a word. lam happy to do you a ser-
"Take this clasp, sir; though I am ashamed
to offer it to you, since the gentleman says it
is so valueless. But to me it is as valuable as
life, and I foolishly thought it might be so to
"I do not want it, child," answered Col.
McHenry, feelingly, putting the hand aside
which urged it upon him.
"Indeed, sir, you must take it, for I shall
feel in some degree less under obligations to a
stranger. Besides, I wish to call and redeem
it. Will you give me your address, sir ?" and
as she spoke, he still declining the jewel, she
laid it upon the show case.
"Oh, no matter—but if you • insist—th e
United States Hotel."
"Thank you, sir ; you can never know the
blessings to others that will follow your kind
ness to me to-day." Thus speaking, sad look
ing upon him with an expression of' gratitude
in her tearful eyes, she left the shop, forget
ting the golden clasp, which she had left upon
the show case.
"Will you look at ono of thaw watches
now, Col. McHenry ?" superstitiously asked
the goldsmith, without lifting his oondenmed
"No, sir l" answered the gentleman, sternly.
&nd taking his gloves and cane from the coun
ter, he lett the shop of the avaricious and µn
feeling goldsmith, Who„too closet° risk a trifle
to relieve the wants of a poor family, probably
lost a large amount by the purchases Ids wealthy
customers might have made, as wall' as his
own self-respect, such as it was ; for avarice
always sinks into its shell, before the broad
sun of benevolence.
"Now there Boos a matt who throws away
his money upon vagrants, and thinks me be
neath him because I keep mine to support my
fatally," said the goldsmith, looking after him.
"He thinks me a miser, and I think him a
fool. Oh, here is that clasp, after all ! She
left it for him on the show case, and he was
too proud to take it away if he saw. it. Seven
dollars! It is not worth more 'than five !"
He opened it as he spoke, and taking up a
sharp instrument, tried the fineness of the
"It is good Mexican gold. It might have
once cost twenty dollars. Ah, what I a star of
diamonds within it !" As in working about it
with the point of steel, he discovered a cavity.
"Twelve large diamonds of the• purest water!
This is indeed valuable.! Let me see—they
are worth at least five hundred dollars ! What
a fortunate discovery I The girl knew the
value to ask so much ! no, no, she could not
either, for she would not have let it gone for
so small a sum, or else asked for inearer its
value. I suspeot she was ignorant of this cav
ity, which I detected only by accident. She
probably has stolen it, and will never come for
it. Ah, ah, Abraham Brochard, thou bast
made a good morning's work of it l" he said
exultingly to himself.
Then looking round among his bays, to see
if he was observed, he carefully, yet with
careless air, locked the clasp in his private
drawer, and, taking out the key, placed it in
his pocket. He had hardly done so, when
Col. McHenry re-entered, and without speak
ing or even looking at him, cast his eyes upon
the show-case for the'clasp, which he recollect
ed after going out, the young girl had laid
down but did not take it up again, and so he
turned back for it. Abrhham Brophard was
very busily engaged in replacing the watches
in their doe-skin covering, and preserved si
lence and ignorance. At lenght Col. McHenry
"That young person laid her clasp on the
case, sir, which. I neglected to take :up. It
was a pity, she valued it so highly, it should
"The,clasp ! oh I have not seen it,
She took it up again."
"Did you see her ?"
"Yes, oh, yes ! I had my, eyes on her, and
said at the same time that you'd never see
your teh dollars or the clasp again."
The gentleman eyed him steadily an instant,
and then glancing round the show case again,
as if in search of it, he quit the shop.
Several days elapsed, and Col. McHenry
had quite forgotten the circumstance just nar
rated, when. as she was passing down Arch
street he felt his sleeve suddenly pulled by
some one whom he had heard mining behind
him; and round, he beheld, with a check glow
ing from the pursuit, the young girl he bed
seen in the goldsmith's.
"Oh, sir, I am so happy to have found you J"
she said, at once addfessing him, as he stopped,
and with pleasure listened to her. "I was at
length enabled to get my pay, and by other
work have earned enough to repay the ten dol
lars you so kindly-gave me.—You don't know
the good you did sir—tbe suffering you relieved
—the evil your timely aid averted. Here is
the money sir."
"Nay, Tay good . girl. I do not want it. I
made you a present of it at the time, and did
not e;pect you to return it. lam glad how
ever, to find you have the disposition to do so,
and that I was not dieeived is tuy estimation
"You must take it, sir," she said with inge
nuous earnestness. "J should be distressed to
be longer under pecuniary obligation to an en
tire stranger. Besides, sir, I would like my
clasp, if you please."
"Did you not take it from the ease where
you laid it down ?" he asked with surprise and
ustly directed. suspicion.

believe the goldsmith has. Let us go to him."
"On their arrival, Mr. Brochard denied ev er

Col. Neitenry stopped with her at a Jus-
tice's ofAce, and lariefty mid clearly made his
complaint, and in a few minutes Mr. Abrahltitl
Brochard was brought by an olllcer into the
presence of a Illa,gistrate. He Appeared to be
in great trepidation, and was pale as ashes; for
he had been suddenly taken without warning
from behind his counter, leaving his shop in
charged of his astonished assistants. Colonel
Metienry and the young lady being sworn,
deposed that they both had last seen the Plan'
on the showcase, where each went out and left
it, the former further desposed that he had
not gone three steps from the door before he
returned and found it milairig, and no one in
the vicinity but the defendant.
The goldsmith was then called pp to be s sworn

would have sunk thraugh the floor when he

who, at the suggestion of Colonel Nolientir i
had been privately dispatched by the justice
with a warrant to the , shop of the goldsmith,
now entered and placed something blithe magis,
trate's hand after whispering to him,
"Did you ever see this gold ornament be

clasp before the young girl.

"And did you ever see it before, sire" de

He was, a few weeks afterwards, taken from
