When wandering in a stranger .land,
A strange sky beading o'er me,

Are thronging fust before me ;
And as bey rise, each friendly (ace —

And seek in mind the fond embrace,
Comes first of all nr MOTUXR !
A brother's warm and faithful heart,
Draws closely to me ever;
A sister's lore's beyond the art
Of chance or change to serer;
My father's form, revered, will rise,
Prised far beyond alt ether,
Save When I flee, with boyhood's eyes,
Ip memory's glass, xr MOTUXR !
Earth's other tiee may seem full strong;
Loved spirit's round we borer;
And hoanty, fame, and waalih, an 1 song,
May win me for their lover;
But still will memory's magnet true,
Point ever to one other,
Investing with hope's brightest hue,
That m< st loved for in— MT MOTHER
Then let.the poet sing for fame;
The miser hoard his treasure;
Let warriors win a deathless name,
An i fill their glory's me iure ;
Go, it they will, and at the shrine
Of proud ambition, smother
Each nobler impulse— yet may mine
Forever seek Mr jtuTgß*!
Or weal or woe, howe'er the tide
The barque speeds o'er life's ooeaa,
On# heart to mine is still allied
With unimpaired devotion;
Let frtnne fail, and friends forsake ;
There's one, and there's.naotbar.
Whose love ne lapse of time can shake ;
That en# 7 She is MT MOTHBR I
In childhood's hour; maturer years;

And points the path to heaven;

" Shy She was, and I th<>a<bt her cold,

T< day I have betn looking at a picture of

My story OPENS ON the firs* MORNING in
May, a warm uioi*t NIORNIUG, and beautiful
AS June. Amy, dressed in white AN I green,
danced till noon with the village girls, afiei
crowning the queen of May. Early in the
aft ernoon there were several fresh rrrival*,
and Arnv ran to U eet her old friend and
playmate, Arthur Motion, younger brother
of the haughty young heir of. Rnthweh Ma
nor. What care f AMY for the yjllage PAFJ
THEN? SITE ntroiled away with Arthur, and
presently the woods echoed their distant
laughter They rambled about till nearlr
•unset, chatting about old time* and absent
friends. At last Arthur told Amy that HE
was going to leave England.
" I knew it before," aaid Amy. •' Howard
"My brother 7 When did you aee him ?"
" Last week. He catnn with Lord Bret

" I shall try."
The next day a splendid carriage, drawn
by hor*es, drew Roberto and Amy to
Rothwell, distance of five miles. Arthur
followed slowly ON horseback Passing by
the pind h- saw a green and white scarf
that Amy had DROPPED the day previous
He put it tn hta b >iom and rode on to Roth
No experae had been spared to maka the
feta magnificent. AH the beauty and noble
blood for fifty miles around assembled to
honor the future Lord of Rothwell. Arthur
FT# the merrie*t of IHE merry yoang men
who lovad htm far better than hia hanghty
brother. Amy Pr*ston, in a robe of violent
silk, and with pearls on her neck and arms,
was envied by ail (air ladies, becauae of the
marked attention paid her by the young
Lord of Bretnel. At wdipbt Arthur found
her ALOPM nd proposed • walk on ihe ter
rce. •' It WIIF BE our feat foe many months,
perhaps years, "be said.
Amy consented refoutently ; Roberto bad
Mt her but ft* a moment, end she Wee await
ing his retire.' Rut she ellewed Arthur to
lead her ewey, and night and the stars found
them walking among the early flowers
Tbnj talked of the poet end the present, bet
not of the future. Music floe tod out from
the half ; dancing had commenced. ,
" You will dance th first with vie, Amy. <
wiU you not ?" Arthur, asked.pleadingly.
/' I have promised Roberto. See, he is
epproechieg. You sriil come to JPreatoa
Honse to bid me good bye before you go, i
wifi you nol, Arthur."
i? 4 H lcuoi;.betl shfilLeee yoe to-morrow
Amy danced and sang till midnight. H**r
eves wire brighter than ufiual, and her step
lighter. Roberto was often by Tier side, and
she blu*bed beneath his meaning glances
and a* his eaenfsf Worja. But she wslri*d
„wib Ar'Hur, and sang his favorite son?.—
That night, fr-ra her turret chamber. Arnv
could see Arthur's win 'w in the ma<n build
ing on her left. His pght burned till the
rnominc "tsr grew dim at dav dawn, and she
Wstphed W one |imnse of hia face, hii' she
aaw nothing She feU asleep at snnrise.
F-mr dqva U*#r Atr met Arthur in the
hall (• Preston Rwo ; he had rome to hH
them good hre, for he Was going a war the
" T will go as f#r a* *he old oaV with von."
said Arnv as Arthur was leavin* the hon.
Arthur tooljed Mesaed. Thev wslVod
stowlv in the bright snnahine. and talked of
the time when the treea would eaat a darker
•hadow when the or*sa would be taller and
the flowers wiild hloseom nnd rt r the hedge
rows. Not one word of the friendship that
had honnd them so eloaelv in the veara that
had gone. If either heart ached the face and
voice gave no sign.
44 Yon w'dl nut see the roses hlrmm that
▼mj planted a month tgn. Arthur "
44 No, only In dream* "
44 Nor the autumn woods that yon love so
14 N< matter ; f shall not forget them "
41 N'Ur the Christmas fires. -What will
Christmas be to vnnr father without his fa
v< rite son. Arthur ?"
Arthur did not reply. Amy thought his
tip quivered, but it might bo fancv.
44 Yon will be at home on Chris* mas eve,
4 * Nut unless you hid rae come, Amy."
Did Amy aee the wistful, imploring, quee
tinning glance he cast upon her aa be said
this. If she had would the have answered
as she did f
44 Unless I bid vou ? You are not my ter
vart, Arthur. You will do aa y-u please ;
hut you know that no other can ever fIH the
place vacant in our hearts and homes—your
fathers home and' mine."
The words contained more of regret at his
departure than any he h#d hear t her utter;
but even they were too cold for his purpose.
They reached Ihe "Id oak tree; Amy'paus
ed, and Arthur -aid :
44 Giaid bye, Amy ; think of ynur old play
matc sometimes; and H y>o are ever happier
than you have been in years that are past.
*end m- a line across 'he sea, and I will c<m
gra'tiG e you, and send you my blessing if
it i* worth anything." So they parted in
tht May sunshine.
Arthur walked rapidlv homeward. He
did turn o cu, thinking that he heard a Voice
calling lum ; bur it wa only fancy. Th*-
word* '• -is. wih ne" would have kept him
in E-igUn 1 t-if a time, eager as he was to see
the land of r>m nice —fa* r Italy. He knew
that he *h uld never be happ. in a ditan*
land, far froin home end km I red ; but he
could brava everything for fame. A'a*! he j
could not win it as an art.s* ; he might
nations bv hi* eloquence if he ouild stand in
his hr oher'a place. He was bur a younger
brother, yet far nobler and m .re fitted for
the master of heßithwell than H-ward
He K'-ew this, and yet he never envied hi s
brother the position fa'e had given him.—
The day following he left England."
14 'Ti good to be merry and wise ;
'Tit good to be honest and trot ;
'Tis good to be off with the old lore,
Befoie you are on with the new.'*
Amy wandered ab >ut among the trees till
night fall. The little maiden of a month ago
was a haughty woman to-day. Arthur wa*
very proud; so was she. She aked her
self the question, why, it Arthur really loved
her he did not tell his love now that be was
going away. She could not herself
on this point. He might be jea'oua, and, if
so, why had she never discovered it. "He
doe# not, he never did love me," she aaid to
herself, and yet her heart told her that her
words were untrue.
She reached home at last. Roberto had
ent tier an exquisite antique vase that he
had brought from the East. She fell to mas
ing over it, wondering if he intended to trev
ei again; she had heard him express ade
•ire to do to at aorne future time. If he
must, would he take his bride with him, if
he married ? She thought w hat a fine thing
it would be to be able to call tboae woods
and streams at Bretnel her own ; to be the
mistress of the grand old castle; to .wander
among the ooot fountains ra the breexy gar
dens ; to be luHed to sleep by the music of
Prestoe would be her o#n at her father's
death, but it WM -only a plain country man
sion. although the l*t>d were broad i but it
did not satisfy her. She bed deep Rothwell
Manor ever since her childhood, sad she had
fi*fq*ited tt #ith all that Wasgrandaad ex
celient until she saw Bretnel a few years hfe
fore. , Rothwell faded iMo mejguificance
them Si nee she had met, Roberto her girl
woq<fored At the
chaqgp.as she went to her chamber that
* deepened .into J ooe; July, jU>eqn#*o,
burned her beaotjr npou the earth; October
ehuie and the" golden plorv of autumn was
ct-n n the lead, but o<> letters came from
tl e wanderer fo Prest'-n House. Amy re
ceivnd the visits nf Lord Bretnel with pleas
ore, yet she longed for tidings from Arthur
Should she write to him a# a sister might
write ti* a brother? No; he did not ask
her to write. She wonld wait till she Could
l-t him know with her own pen that she
was to be mistress of Bretnet, fir such she
wa< certain she should be. Robeito was a
noble, whole souled man, above the ordinary
fttauip of manhood, and thera was no mistak
ing the intentions of such as he. Site deter
mined to wait unt i he proposed for her hand,
and then she would ask the blessing that Ar
thur had promised The opportunity came
sooner than she expected.
One day in October, when she had return
ed from a walk, her father told her that Rob
erto had proposed for her hand, adding that
! he had given his consent if his daughter's
heart could go with it.
'• I once thought that you loved Arthur
M-rt..n I should not have objected, Amy,
for I wish to make >ou happy; hut Lord
Bretnel is a more fitting match for you, ray
child, although I am an old man, and Bret
nel is fifty miles sway, yet I can give you
to htm with pleasure if you can be happy
with him Re is waiting for you In the gar
Amy g'snced at her soiled dress, and Itsv
ing a kiss on her father's cheek, she went to
her dressing room. Two dresses lay aide by
side—s beautiful rose-colored rube, aod a
white India muslin. She took up the latter.
H I am to sacrifice love to ambition, white is
most fitting," she thought, hlf aloud. 44 If I
knew—if I only knew that he—that Arthur
loves me, I should hesitate even now." A
tiny case lay before her, And she took it up.
It was the (ace of a boy of sixteen, and the
laughing eyes looked into hers, the handsome
lips smiled upon her; she made a move
ment to throw it from her, and yet she grasp
ed it. " I cast him from me and rejected his
love; without words, but be knew it."—
Site thought how happy she was on the day
that Arthur gave her that picture, three
vears before, Should she ever be as light
hearted again ?
Raising her head from the pioture she saw
the reflection of herself in the glass. Shu
was surprised at the beam iful face before
her. Her eyes sparkled, her cheek wis
flu-hed with a rich rose color, and the defi
ant expression she assumed as aha raised her
hea I was becoming to her face, she thought.
*' He was too proud," she said, 44 and yet—
and x et--"
She thought of the diamonds that would
one lay gleam in her hair, (he silky brown
hair that she knew to be very beautiful, of
the robes of velvet that she had seen others
wear, and *he to k up the white dress arxt
commenced her toilet. Before she had fin
tshed the color had gone trom her cheek and
the brilliancy from her eyes. Her face wore
a look of pain, and she knew that ahe must
not meet R >bert.'s searching eve until she
Bhe kneeled bv the open window, hoping
tliat the warm eouth wind would give back
the bl.Mun to for cheek, and ell into a reve
ry. from which ahe was aroused by a rain
drop that fell upon her cheek. A heavy
shower had gathered, and the rain was in
creasing She c -uld not go to the garden,
and she was about to ring and request R
berto to wait her in the library, when the
post-boy galloped up to the d ior. She Was
expecting a letter from her cousin Agnes,
she thought a perusal of the usually well
filled pages, brimming over with fun, would
restore her cheerfulness. She rang the bell.
44 Are there letters, Estelle ?"
44 There is a letter."
4 * Bring it up, and ask Lord Bretnel to
wait a few moments for me in the hbrary."
The letter was brought. It bore a foreign
post-mark The sight of the well-temetnber
ed hand writing brought the coveted color
td her cheek. Breaking the seal she read
the following lines, traced by an unsteady
Fair is this land, dear Amabel,
The laod of all my boyish dreams ;
Bat dearer is my native land,
And fairer are its woods aod streams.
I watch the saashine aa it fhlls
On many a shrine of song and atory;
And oh ! my heart heats high to win
One sparkle of the olden glory.
And yet I sigh- thou art not hero !
The boon go by on leadea wings;
Sometiqaes I bear yoar favorite song,
And every bell of memory nng# t
And then' I tong to see your fkos,
Aod fame aod fortune, wealth and pawn r,
All that I'd hop# to win oa earth
14 barter for my oldsn plaot
Beside yoe, Amy, one short hour.
I did not tell nty love for you,
And yet yon feneW it, Amabel;
Yon read B fo my eyw, my Hps
Onttfd ask have spoken it as wall;
And foyour eyas, a* in tha stars,
I droagbt I read my destiny.
Yet whsn we parted, yoe was oold,
Nor -reathed one word of hope to m#;
Aid most t pins M tMI rw-et lead,
With only dreams if earlier years.
That makes me sad-toe proud fo shed
Fleode of regretful; bitter teen?
\ weak, jit all ef life for me
Ia eart upon oae hope, on* joy— oa thse.
Amy dropped the caressing verses and took
up the miniature. There wee one spore
struggle between love end ambition, end the'
former conquered. She dared out meet Ro
berto unfit she had sealed her fate, for there'
was a fascinati h in his voice and eyed that
frw could resist. She tuk up a pea sod
" Com• to me, A rthu ; f have Tece'ited
yotir letter, and 1 am happier than when I
parted with you. Come and congratulate me*
C me to roe on Christmas ere. AMABEL."
Was there hope? but tor her pride she
would have writteh—" You are dearer far
thaa all the world beaide."
She scaled the note, gate it into the hand
of a servant, and went down to Roberto and
told hitn her heart-changes. She told him
everything but that she would hare married
to si fitly her ambiti* n ; for that surely was
not all. She was confident that bis lore
would give place to contempt; but she told
her story honestly, and he believed her.
41 1 have loved you," she aaid, 41 tar better
than I < ver did or ever could love any obe
except Arthur. I could have made you hap
