Music, wild, thrilling music, Throbs out-e'er the midnight air; A thousand lights are flashing,' And happy hearts are there. I hear the tread of dancers, As graceful forms glide past ; 'Tis a scene of wildering beauty—. Too fair, too bright to last. And I have been the gayest Amid these scenes so bright ; They think-that I am happy— But oh ! I'm sad to-night ! 'Neath the diamonds coldly flashing Upon my heaving breast, Though my laugh has rung the loudest, My lone heart would not rest. And be bath viewed my conquests, And heard my mocking laugh, And his burning eyes have followed Whene'er i near him passed. Ile hath knelt in love before me— Oh l his anguish I could see— But 1 turned as coldly from him As once he turned from me. And in hasty words I told him I could never love him more! 'Twits wild, wild agony for me, And my heart grew sick and sore.' Yes, I masked my love in coldness, And from him turned away— From my wildly-worshipped idol— And my heart-stringsshattered lay There was ever in my memory Vows uttered long before, And though I smiled upon them, They soon forgotten were. For another form had won him— An angel form he thought; But soon ho wearied of a love By golden purse-strings bought. And tonight again he met mo 'Mid this scene of revelry ; And I viewed his pale lips quiver In love's fearful agony, His face was pale and ghastly, As he stood from the rest apart, With his proud arms tightly folded Upon his bursting heart. I could have died then for him ; But I seemed airpfejadiy gay, Awl the grandly swelling:music Bore my merry laugh away.. U woman I thou canst worship Arid still be proud and cold, Though a weary heart is breaking 'Neatli the satin's gleaming fold A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE POEM, The subjoined beautiful lines originally ap peared in the Dublin "University Magazine,” several yews sinee.

The fine mansion of • the °Alberg t family, near Glnckstad, was- brilliantly 'lighted ) and the sound of music_ and dancing was .Lorne on the evening air across the rolling, sparkliermaters of the Elb. That night a- grand ball was given by Count Frederick Alberght, the only remaining, representative of the noble family whose name ha bore. The building warmassive atone, drawbridge and battlemented towers ; if was a fine old feudal castle, built in the time of Frederick IL Outside it looked grand gloomy; inside it was ablaze with light and redolent with perfume of .choice flowers, which were scattered in .pro fusion, not about the Urge reception saloon, but in all the smaller apartments which were thrown open to the guests. • In a little room far removed froth the rest, in the eastern tower, stood two persons—a young roan, remarkably handsome, though there was an expres sion of deep care upon his face, and a lady. The lady . was not remarkably handsome, just now, as she listened to her companion with drooping :eyes.— Indeed most people would call her sim ply pretty till she raised her expressive dare blue eyes, and the briliant, sylph like smile broke over her face.. The two were standing carelessly together, the lady leaning against the heavily carved oaken window frame, and the young man nearly opposite her, -cares sing a bright eyed falcon that "perched on his wrist. . • "So, Count Alberght, you will be re membered for -a long while as the young noble who gave the :most splendid ball as ever yet attended." The lips of the young man curled, and he answered, contemptly-- "That is surely a ILAIMI worth gaining at any price." "Of coarse said the Jad,y. But why so scornful about it 9" . ' . "You know, Lady tena, that " cars only for your: approbation; that the ball given onii,in honor of and to please you, whose sligbtest wish I would gratify at any expectse.!'' "Alas ! Count Alberght, I am told that a dozen times each day.", "Probably; but_ the words do not come from the heart; as mine "Pooh said the lady; "they: all swear that." - . "Well, Lady. Lena,,l may sometimes bo able to prove.the truth of my words. I have been a fool.. For.three years. I have huog upon ,pour , accents, and fulfilledlour every wish r as far as lay in my. power. My fortune; was am ple, I laid at your feet, that lon might have every possible want supplied ; and in return for thtildevotionj. have receiv ed nothing but:Slate:is and scorn.— You know that Move you as few loie— withicay whole heart - and soul—aud yet you scorn me. You are rich and noble. I still love'yon as madly as ever, but to night is the last time I willbow before you. This once I plead, LadyLenn,to be shown some kindness. FortliV last time I offer myself. Will you-accept me"?" Lady Lena turned very pale as she listened to the rapid, pashionate words uttered by the young man. who knelt before her. Her eyes grew dark with some inward feeling, .but -her" words de stroyed the faint hopewhiCh 'had risen in his heart and the gentle fizpression on her face. "Oh ! rise, Count Frederick, for. I know that thidis all nonsense--insanity. To-morrow you wili.bo beside rue - as usual, and the. next, and , every day, just as you have bean for years.'.' The young man rose; and, in- answer to her.taunt, only bent his head and ten derly stroked the glossy head .and. neck of the bright eyed .bird wrist, that looked from one to another, - as if inquir ing what was going‘on. , Piqued - at his silence, the lady 'ex claimed— ' "What now is your boasted love ? I say a bitter thingto you, d you do an not retaliate:" cannot forgetAuself 80 far as to retaliate to a- woman." - "No," said she.;'"WV yen can sneer. You sneer and. stoke:your falcon, which know possesses ::wore of your boasted love than . ,I do." "Jeanette never wortuds me," he. repli ed. "In return for my caresses she does not give me bittdr Coldness." "Perhaps she would if she could speak," Persisted the lady. ' - "Actions, Lady'Lena," said he .`speak louder than" vorde • - The girkaleyes flashed, ,and she turned. to the'door punka as.she neared it, and, looking - , over ler shoulder, said con; teniptuously— "l suppose the cause of your love for 4:4t.... • - 1; - 1 zitit .- ti'......n.., MARIETTA, PA., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1862. that bird is becau , se she once belonged to_eome former lady love." The tone was very insulting and this time the young man raised his. 'head with , flashing. 'eyes, and."words Were rapid and indignant. - - • "Yon are right," he replied.. "This falcon belonged to a noble lady, whose lcind wornanly.heart scorned to inflict ,a wound upon the meanest creature; who trampled not under foot honorable love offered her, as if it were a disagreeable thing. ' Cine whom I loved devotedly, and who, had she been unable' to return the affection offered her, would yet have rejected it with considerate - gentleness."" "Why, then, don't you return' to this paragon of tenderness and virtual" sneered' the lady. "She would willingly seothemy wound ed spirit," he -replied"; "but she is dead." Without another word, Lena aped from the room, her brain on fire, her eyes full of tears.. Could Frederick have spon..her.as she, leaning far, out of the windOw, wept bitterly, ho would have forgiven the bitter words. As it vas, they parted in anger. Left alone, Frederick . paced and down the room. In his despair lie mur mured aloud— ' " "I have been a drivelling foolr—La mad man 1' For three years I have :destrey -ed and devoted my time, heartand fort une to the 'service of his heartless -wo man,,- ono .day. rewarded-with $ smiles, -the next with frowns.

For myself, :I shall withdraw from society, and in this small gloomy tower support my despair es best I may. I have been worse than foolish—l have been wicked. But this 'unmanly repin ing will not - do. I must rejOid my guests. So saying, Frederick replaced the fal. con on his perch near the window, and forcing, a• gay smile and careless -air, sauntered into, the ball ,room, and from that time until the company left he, was seemingly, the *gayest, of the gay. . * * * * 44 , * "Quick I Susan, fasten this bodice, and bring-me the hood and mantle and the thick shoos !" exclaimed tho Lady Lena; and she added, impatiently, "You'll have to pin this handkerchief and apron string, 'fdr my hands tremble' BO that I cannot, do anything."' The maid obeyed, and soon hat. young mistress, stood before tho elegant mirror laughing to see herself in complete peas ant's attire. "Will anybody know me•? elite asked, laughingly, as she drew the hood over her face. . "Na, indeed, Lady Lena," replied the maid ; "if 1 hadn't seen you, dress, should not know you myself." . "Th . eir I am off!" Suiting the action to the word, the graceful Lady Lena ran out of, the room and down stairs in a very tindignißed manner. In the garden she was mat by Susan's lover, wbo exclaimed-- - '."Pears - to me we 'are in a monstrous hurry, Mistress Susan. Can't you Stop' to give a fellow a noontide kiss ?" "Away with yon:1" . she exclaim '.:You shall have.two kisses when I come, back, if you won't stap me:now." •"Good bargain, .Susan," said have not much to do, , mind mill wait by. the gate.till,yoncome back." . , Away sped Lena. After a., pretty, long, rapid walk she reached Castle berght, and enterning by a low postern door, which:she dpened,made - her Way to the tower where she tiaiv' old Margaret seated. "Good noon, (lathe Margaret," said Lo• The old woman 'raised her. heady and' recognizing Susan, Lads Leiaa's favor ite Waiting maid,, she returned a very sulky greeting. "Don't be cross, Margaret," she contin ued. "I've, got a beautiful note from.my lady for your, young,mastef." _ ' "You needn't come here with it, theia,';,, said d,amd Margaret. "your lady's.netes have brought sorrow to this.house." "But,.Margaret, Lwas.sent to, deliver I it and to xeceive . ca AuswerD 4!

Here Lena began to eob ; Margdret 'rose, Saying— "Yon have ne ver done me any Aarm • so give , me the note and let me take it up stairs quickly!" The note was produced and Margaret • grumblingly took it up stairs, muttering, as she did so— "Much good it will do my poor young master. It isn't sealed very closely, and NI could read I.would open it, and then itthere was anything in. it to wrong,him I'd sooner. put my. hand in the.fire than give it to•him. By this time .she had reached, the second story, and knocked at the dqor." "Come in," said Frederick, who was seated by the window, reading. He looked up as the old woman entered, and neked what she wanted.- ' "A. note for you, sir," she replied. The young man's 'face turned. a shade .paler,:and hie hand alightly , trembled as he took the deliegtely perfumed note.— A moment' he .paused, overcome by his feelings, then impetously tore the note opem.arvEread the following words : "Lady: Lena Erfdrt being about to visit-England for several years, desires .the pleasure. of= meeting once more ter.friend, Opunt Frederick Alberght .who.has so mysteriously withdrawn him .self` from sciciety. She will do herself .thwhonor of dining . with , him this day .at , five-ci?clock."- . • , •Aispasni-passed over the young man's face,' and lie. Murmured "Once more."- -titen turning to Margaret he said is there in the helm to eat?" "As good as nothing, sir," replied the faithful woman ; "for there is only the scraps left from your breakfait." "That's bad, Margaret," said he ; "for I have no money—not' a single kreutzer ; , and here is a note from Lady Lena, in forming me that she will dine with me to-day." "She must not come, dear sir. There - • is.nothing to give her." Frederick seemed lost in thOught.— Sttddenly he raised his head. "I have it now," said he. "You must serve up My poor` Jeanette here. It is can do." ' "Oh 1 masterl . What, roast this poor bird yol loved so long, and whichbe lorige:cl to r ." 't o husti, Margaret; not another word; • Only do'as I bid you. Serve the bird up as best you can. Have the table laid for two'in the dining room, and. have it ready precisely at five o'Clock. When the lady arrives summon me, and serve dinner immediately. I shall be in my chatalier, to which I shall now retire." Margaret dared not remonstrate, but Sobbing and 'wringing. her hands, she Went "down Stairs. Lena watched Mar garet coming with intense anxiety, and when Margaret entered ifi.such distress of mind,:she sprang up, . "Whatie the matter,,, ? Has anything happened to your master r "Indeed, there has 1" woefully answer ed Margaret. "What ?" said Lena. "Speak, wo man:?" "Oh I, only he's gone clean demented. You bring a note from your haughty mistress; who ought to be drowned , in the Elbe, for she always makes trouble for_ my dear young master, one of whose fingers is worth more than all her body; made him waste all his fortane„so that now he is as, poor as Jobe, :;and now makes him kill his beautiful falcon." A: triumphant smile flashed into the eyes of the 'false - waiting woman, and she 'asked so ?" . . "Why, you see Mistress Susan, your . lady - enming to 'dine with him, and there is nothing in the house, neith er victuals, not even a kreutzer, so he has 009 rad ttle,falcon to he roasted for your v 4.400 lady's zimier." • "I.llave.,no,doubt make capital eating," laughed the _ .

Margaret's fade lighted up, and earn- estly•thanking the - girl,she left-the room and soon'returned with the falcon, close ly hooded, which she gave to the false Susan, viho'went off with it. ' Punctual to the minute came . Lady Lena, and never had sho looked more lovely or been dressed with so much elegance and taste. Margaret, with a sullen air, ashered her into the dining room,-where. Frederick came forward to receive her. He• was struck with her fresh winning appearance, and she with his Pale,' haggard - appearance:—a bitter chadge to be wrought in so" few weeks. His greeting was frigidly polite, and herd pniticulary general and kind. The dinner wad soon served, and Lena shuddered as she glanced round, the long, dark; unfurnished room, seen last brilliantly lighted, and decorated, and, filled with sprightly guests, and before whom groaned a table covered with ev ery luxury the season afforded and mon ey could buy. What a contest I Now all the gorgeous lianging, furniture, pie tines, silver, .glass and lights were gone and in. . their place stood in the empty room-- a small deal table, bearing. two . covers and one dish of meat. . With all his grace, of manner,, Freder ick led Lena to the table, and took his place opposite her. „ The meal was a si lent one; for Frederick was •abstracted, and Lena 130 nearly overcome by every thing around her that she could scarcely repress her tears. As they rose from the table, the cOuntsaid— "l BM sorry, madame, to offer you so poor a repast; but—" "Don't speak of it count," hastily inter rupted 'Lena, affeCting a gaiety she was far from feeling: "It was charming—so new ; And I never' tasted a more delic ious, chicken." "I am happy to find that .I have pleas ed Yon," said. Frederick ; "but allow me, in all deferenee to-;your taw, to correct one Miktake—the bird you have partaken of was not a chicken, but my falcon I" "Your pet felon said Lena,, in, well affected astonishment. "The same e,Madame," he replied. "Prederich 1" she exclabiaed. The' tone in which his ,namtoAntit tered caused Frederick to. start. He was dumb with , surprise when he saw the haughty Lena burst into tears ; but-be- fore he could recover his self possession, Lena stood before 'area and - pale. "Frederick, to-day we part forever," said she.; "and before-we do so, I must obtain . your. 'forgiveness.- You have al ways treated me with respect and love and I—l have repaid your devotion with coldness and scorn. Will you forgive me ?" "Most certainly," coldly answered Frederick, making a great effort to sub due the paision her unwonted gentleness had - roused . ; '"r loved you, and, proba bly, by my unceasing devotion, wearied you. I needed a`lesson, and I have learned it. I could expect one who did not love to—" "Stop here, and listen to me," said Lena;.

A moment she left the room, and that re turned, bearing a basket, which she gave to Frederick. On opening, it, his falcon flew oat. Resting her beautiful head ou Frederick's shoulder.she said— "Take me, dear Frederick. I yield myself to be overcome by your love and unselfish lievotion—actually brought to hand by your falcon." All together Again. All togethei, altogether, Once, once again ; Hearts and voices, light as ever, Gladly join the_welcome Amin. Friendship's link is still unbroken, Bright is its chain ; Where the parting word was spoken, Now in smiles we meet again. C l 'o2liS 0 could we ever Dwell in social pleasure here, No more to sever From the friends we love so dear. While the absent we are greeting, Let us forget In this hour of social meeting Every tho't of past regret. Since the present, full of gladness, Bids us be gay, Banish every cloud of sadness. And be happy while we may.
