" GIVE ME A THOUGHT," OR DAGUERREOTYPES OF LORD BYRON I=l Our first presents a boy of some ten or twelve summers, reclining listlessly upon a bed of moss, beneath a large elm that stirs its branches in the light brEeze. The large brown eyes are half.bid den by the clustering curls that shade his pale face, and there seems an unusual brilliancy in their Ina trous depths. He had just torn the last petal from a rose that he held, and as he flung it to the air, a sigh stele from hia bosom, and the words, "even so shall my memory pass," escaped his lips. A rnbition,—thou fell destroyer of all that is beautiful and pure, thou degrader of' the human heart, thou fiend that intrudest upon the sacredness of Love, and callest thy votaries to kindle thy un holy fires upon his very altar—couldst thou not have spared that young spirit from thy withering breath? But like the grim " King of Terrors " thou choosest the loveliest, the best, fur thine unhallowed prey. That child, with Iris deep, impassioned eyes turned up to heaven, first felt the desolating fire dart within his bosom, and rush like burning lava through his veins: but like the charmed bird, he could riot escape the fast narrowing circles that on ly lured him on to ruin, but madly wished to hurry on into the rapacious jaws of the huge, unsightly monster. "Give me a thought; let the f end visions hidden within my own sfrange being, assume the form of thought,—deep, grand, and spirit-like, that shall sway the myriads who shell read and admire." The whispered tones sighed inyhe branches above, and every zephyr, as it glided past, seemed to bear the deep import of those magic words, "Give me a thought." Among Iris few companions, the brave, spirited child hod ever been as a being of a higher order, one whose thoughts and feelings were utterly be yond their reach. Unlike them in spirit, as well its in mind, melancholy, and sometimes even morose, he yet ruled them ; for they loved him for his dur ing; many a village school-boy had told his idle of' the young, wild creature, who had raved the life of a playmate at the imminent peril of his own. In dulged in every whon, an idol among his playlet lovvs,,there was yet a restless craving after some thing nobler than the vain flattery of ill-judging friends, or the blind homage of those of his own age;—the ever-flashing fire of his dark eye, the ever.flitting color of his cheek betrays that images of beauty were mirrored within that young heart, that in after years would be pictured forth in the glowing language of poetry. . There, where the harmony of Nature's voice swelled he heart with rapture, did the enthusiastic bey first dream of the, as yet, unpolished gem that lay hidden in its casket, ready to send forth its !nitre, when the sunbeam fell upon it. Then a brilliant future opened before him; he heard the clarion blast ofFame, with its pealing, thundering lone; he saw bright eyes grow brighter as he sp. preached, and wealth poured its hoarded treasures at his. feet; ,but amid the lyres that flung their ray- Wring cadence on his ear, the harp of Love dis coursed the sweetest and purest 'symphony ; , but a fearful foreboding crept into his heart, lest that harp's sweet melody should ,be lost amid the deaf ening strains, struck from the jangling instruments era° pushing. When roused from his reverie, he rushed from the spot, hardly daring to glance for a moment., through the mist thatobseured his des tiny; he felt that his was mhigher path than that trodden by the, men of pony intelleets.about him; but th - orns were springing oh every aide, and black thunder•eleuds,.flesbing .with- living fire, careered in wild fury above it. .The back-ground is the sea shore. vast, wild and desolate; the 'alorni.ged is riding on the waves; aver and anon they dash furiously upon the strand; huge cliffs tower,up,into the threatening sky above, while their bases stretch out into the, sea, dashed for centuries by, those swelling , foaming billows. The clouds above are whirling around-the tower ing peaks, and the llghtning-flasb shoots down .up on . the wives. Morning with Ate,quick,,yivid,are.. the hollow caverns of thane ant Upon the right, a ledge of rocks extends into the sea be. yond, truly.sceming the abode of the tempest spir it, who poises his 'black wings over his wide do. main, spreading darkness and desolation wherever he flies. This mariner tossed upon the wild.waves, hears the death signal of his hop es in the rushing thunder of its broad pinion, and resigns himself to the billowy depths, uncomplaining at its all.power. Gil mandate. • A mere boy stands in mute, rapt ecstasy, within, Ss it were, a niche of those monuments of nature's greatness. The billows are dashing at his feet, and on every side huge Summits rise in their wild. grandeur far above him, until lost amid the dark clouds that whirl around them. The sea.bird sends forth its sharp shrill cry, as irco tell, "Of the bidden things whreli the waves conceal, And the sea-bird's song can alone revoal," The black, thick curls are east back from the high, perfectly chiselled forehead, heavy with the spray that dashes upon them; there is greater depth of feeling in the large, black eye than before, and lines of deeper thought upon the expressive face. He had heard the soft, thrilling notes of the, harp of Love, and listened to the honied welcome that ever greeted his ear. His loved one, was, alas, the ideal of a too active fancy, a being with none of the frailties and follies of earth, but one who would ever be to hint the radiant star of his horizon, the guide to a purer destiny. The young enthusiast deemed not that that bright dream should ever fade; saw not in the dim future the shapes of dread that hovered round him. Ho beheld in his idol not a frail creature of earth, but a spirit from its native heaven, and radiant with its own bright hues. He had heard the breath of Fame sound his name in the halls of the great and noble; he lied seen the warm blush rise to the cheek of beauty, and bright eyes kindle for his sake; but still a voice within whispered that he might have trod in a parer path, a self-condemning principle within his bosom, that pointed far into the untried ocean of Eternity. He had taken thought from the sky above him, from the dark heaving ocean, from the human heart, from all that earth affords of beauty or of light; but there was a thought that rested not within his heart, a thought that would have curbed the fiery passions within his breast, wild as his own loved billows. But he had found it not ; and still he felt the void, but knew nut how to fill it. The deep, low tone of the lulling tempest seemed, as it whistled along the shore, to bear the impress of a tone from the spirit.lend, "Give me a thought." The Mer de Glace reflects the sun-rays that fall upon its bosom, Spreading forth" 'it the base of the majestic Alps, one' wide sheet of dazzling brilliancy --cm one side the dark shadow of gont Blanc jells upon it, affording a strange contrast to the spark ling expense beside it. 'While on 'the mountain summits, the sun glances upon perpetual snows, and the mighty avalanche rears its terrible bead, just ready, to rush into the vale below, carrying des olation and death in its headlong career, down in those Viet• vales, the trees are ever budding, the flowers are ever blooming, and perpetual spring gladdens all nature with her melodious voice. On a little IRMO at the foot of the mountain, his face glowing with some hidden emotion, stands Lord Byron; the beautiful boy hie ripened to manhood; he stands with ono arm resting'careleasly upon a moss-grown rock, the other raised to the snow-clad peaks above him, with face upturned, as if to catch the inspiration of heaven, from the grand and beau tiful of earth. Now the blue veins dwell upon his lofty brow, now the black eye flashes, and the bo som heaves. Now the storm of passion is over, and the stern spirit recedes' into the vista of the past; calli up the heart's cherished images, tuo soon alas, forgotten for the homage of the heartless throng. He had seen the flowers wither from his way, and thorns spring up in their place; he had heard the silver notes of the lyre of Love die away amid the clash of worldly thoughts, and wordly pursuits, un til even the star of Hope grew dim in the horizon, and seemed just twinkling into nothingness. True be had wandered amid the lovely, and the bright of earth, had gained all that he so longed for in his boyhood. He had stood and gazed upon the lofty ramparts of the "eternal city," and heard again the pealing shout of victory ; he had wandered in the vine•clad valleys of sunny Italy; he had stood upon the mountain's top, and seen the sun sink duwn into the depths of' the rolling ocean; he had gathered beauty from everything, from the bright est star in heaven's own galaxy, down to the tiniest flower that chequers time emerald sod, and he had given thoughts to the world that made men bow before his mighty intellect. But still a something crept within his breast, that whispered of more g,lo. rious images of light than earth contains, end still front the vast, smooth sea before him, could he see reflected those mystic characters, "Give me a thought. The thought he needed, though lie knew it not, was a thought of heaven. IV. The evening is casting her mantle over the clas sic land of a Leonides., and a Socrates, a Homer, and a Demostimene. But cruelty and tyranny have dyed her fields with the blood of her children, and converted the land of beauty and glory to n waste, where the flowers of the heart must be crush cd in the bud, and the priceless gem that should lend its lustre to the being, is dimmed by time dark. ness of superstition, and a faith even worse than heathenism. Byron hod mused upon the fate of the unhappy sons of Greece, until his heart heaved with emotion, and his soul was enlisted in her cause. He had wandered forth amid the ruins of Athens and of Corinth, while every fallen column, every crumbling shalt, clustered associations of the past, the glorious past, when her warriors stood with lance, nod spear, and shield, and defied the united armies .of the civilized world to conquer them ; when from the lips of the orator and poet burst the thrilling strains of eloquence; and then ho had seen it■ once noble' children' bound 'with the iron chain of slavery, their liberties invaded, their homes desecrated, and all that should make life dear, snatched from them by the ruthless hand of the op pressor. •He had stood upon the plain where con flicting armies had met, for men to lake up arms against his fellow-man, only that they might crush them to time earth, and blot out their names forever from the book of Fame. ' • • But on the battle-field, the death•blow had boon given, and now ho lay at the open casement, look ing out upon the fields decked in their beauty,upon the vast arch:above, with its Over clouds chasing each 'other away into the western horizon. The feelings could be curbed no longer, and the full, wild, passionate heart overflowed. "Swim Omnipotent Hand must have framed this wonder. ful Universe, with its myriads of worlds swaying an the Viet immeasurable space. There is eßeing all powerful, &Mune, and I feel that I must lie help. less in his hand. I have formed a world of my own within_ my heart, have peopled it with creatures of my own wild fancy, but found, too late. I had given the Omnipotent no place there. ' “Early I learned that the world wee cold, deceit. fail; that the whirlpool of passion wee too often hid beneath the smooth.gliding waves of seeming friendship. 'Yet bete - I - realized almost all that I dreamed of, hoped for in my hoyhocid'a days. But one question I._ forgot to ask, • What shall be My destiny beyond the graver I have spent my life [8.1,60, PAYABLTiI AT SIX AIONTHS in guilt and wretchedness,and now a dark, terrible future appears before me. Cursed with the male dictions of the Almighty, doomed to dwell forever with spirits of the fallen, to drink the bitter cup of fearful retribution through numberless area,"—but the picture was too dark, and the dying man, with ono last bitter effort, pressed his hot hand upon his eye•lids, as if to shut out the prophetic fantasies of his own fancy. One shudder passed over the ems. dated frame; the eye grew glazed, and that fixed gaze stole over it, which tells that light has fled forever. Youthful reader, remember when the spring of life has flown, when acts and scenes long past arc treasured in the precious urn of -Memory, when Death comes knocking at the portals of your heart dist you must be borne to the judgment seat, per chance, unprepared, to appear before it.

TURNING OVER A NEW LEAF. "Are you going to get in that corn to-day I" said John Hendricks to Mr. Butler, the farmer for whom he was at work by the month. " Yes," said Mr. Butler, " we must try to get it in, in the course of the day." If it is to be got in today, we must go about it this morning. It. is time it was in, it is half des troyed now. Benton's cattle were in again last night." "I know they were. Here, Saul, do you run over to Benton's, aid tell him his cattle lay in uur corn last night." "And he will tell you to put up the fence," said Saul. "The fence ought to be seen to. Hendricks, you bring me the axe, and I'll go now and tackle it up a little," said Mr. B. Hendricks went for the axe, and having searched in vain for it, returned to Mr. Butler, who was try. ing to set up a wash tub, which had fallen to pie. ecs in despair of the fulfilment of Mr. Butler's promise that he would get a hoop tomorrow. "I can't find the axe; I would as so& under. take to make a thing as find it in this place. It seems to be a rule with every one who uses a tool here to put it in a place where it can't be found no how. If it was left where it was used last, a body might find something once in a while, but as it is, 'tie about impossible. I expect the barn will be a mong the missing some day." "Never mind," said Mr. Butler in a conciliating tone, " the axe will turn up the course of the day. You see if you can set these staves up. I want to see if Holmes can come and cut that buckwheat to.day." Hendricks did as he was requested. He set up the staves, and looked round for the hoop to confine them in place. "I wonder," said he, "if lam ex. peeled to sit hers and hold these in place all day. There is no hoop between here and the black. smith's, I dare say.—l have done harder work than Sitting hors and doing nothing, and more profitable work for my employer; but I must obey orders. Benton's cows arc to have another pull at that corn, I see plainly." In due time Mr. Butler same, and Mr. Holmes was ready to go at the buckwheat as soon as he had ground up his new scythe and spliced ono of the fingers of his cradle. " You have got them set up, have your " Yee, but what is ageing to hold them up when I let go of them ?" " 'fere% a hoop," said Mr. B. " I forgot to tell you about it." Hendricks took it; while Butler and Holmes were grinding the scythe he put it on and drove it clown.—" There" said he, " that's the first job I've known to be finished on this ground since came here three months ego." At this moment Saul returned. "Well Saul, what's the news?" .. Benton says liyde'a cattle are in the lower meadow." "Very likely ; I saw a red squirrel running to. wards the fence and I thought it likely he would get on it and throw it down. If they hod the ;to. Woes it will Bove Borne labor," " What about the potatoes,'' said Mr. Butler coming up at that moment. " Hyde's cows aro taking care of them," said Hendricks. "You run and drive them out, Saul, and find out where they got In and put up the fence a litdo, just enough to turn them for the present. I'll see to it in a dny or tw•n. Hendricks, you harness the horses, we'll try to get a loud of that corn in be. fore dinner." In about half an hour, during which time Measrs. Butler and Holmes had been employed in splicing the cradle finger, Hendricks came to Butler and asked— " Where is the harness of the oil. horse 7" "Oh, 1 let Finkle have it last night. 1 didn't know us we should want it today. Isn't there something else you can du to.day 1" " Yes, there is enough to do if a body could ev. cr get at it. There he comes with the harness. You ore sure you haven't lost any of the Finch pins?" "I guess not." "Well, it may be," said Ifendricks to himself, ..11101 some of that corn be saved uftcr ntl." The render has bad a speArr.en of the mode of proceeding on Mr. Butler's term, and will be ena. bled to form a pretty shrewd gucea why it was that Mr. Butler, who had an excellent farm and who was always busy about something. wns not deemed anu token by his neighbors to be a forehanded man. Hendricks, with the aid of Ssul, succeeded in getting in most of the corn to which allusion has been made, so that Mr. Benton's cows came borne the next day, which was the Sabbath, much less well filled than ordinary. On Monday morning Hendricks was out by day. light, and at work when Saul made his appearance, which was not until ho had given the sun duo pre cedence.—Hendricks informed him that a new leaf was turned aver. •Things about the place are go. ing to be done this week as they ought lobe done." said he. " I'm agreed," said Saul, who was quite willing to work, but wished very muds to be relieved from the responsibility of directig his own movements. "Mr. - Butler." said John after breakfast, " has that axe came to light yet?" " I havn't seen it." "Here it is," said Lirzy, "I found in the grass in the garden." " And took care of it, like a sensible body," said John, taking the axe from her hand. "Thank'ce." The compliment. was not a very polished one, but brought over her beautiful countenance a blush 'which she hastened into the pantry to conceal. "Now" said be, " if you and SA!. will go at those potatoes, I wil put up that fence in a shape that will keep Hyde's cattle out of that meadow for some time. I guess." "Hyde ought to put up a part of it," said Butler. "I know he had, but he will never do it; you might as well try to get a hen to do a sum in the rule of three, as to get him to do any thing worth while. Come, let us have all those potatoes in, and that fence up before sunset." - ...If wo get all the potatoes in, it is not much matter about the fence." [WHOLE NUMBER, 953. " What's the reason it Isn't? Who wails, the cat tle making mortar of the meadow ? ;Come on." They got into a wagon which_had been brought to the door before breakfast, and Hendricks drove off at a rapid rate, making a groat clattering of the loose boards of the wagon and rendering it some what difficult for Mr. Butler and Saulto keep them selves, or rather the board on which they sat, in place. " What has got into John?" said Mrs. Butler, pausing from her efforts over the butter bowl, and watching the rapidly disappearing wagon. " I don't know," said Lizzy, softly. Now she had better not made any reply to the question, for it was not asked with any expectation of a reply. I say she had better not have answered it, for I am not sure but that she strained the truth a little in so doing—Some passages which bad taken place between John and herself as.they came home from meeting together on Sabbath evening, and set " in the front room" together till the roosters crowed. were, in fact, the causes of the turning over the new leaf management of the farm. Before night the fence was put in the most sub stantial Sher, and the potatoes all put in the cellar. The next morning when they were all at break. fast. John inquired," Is Holmes to work for you to.day 7" "Ho promised to come and do what he could to. wards finishing the buckwheat. He , thinks it will take him a day and a half to finish cradling it." " Well you don't want him tn-day. Send the cradle home. and tell him it is cradled. "Cradled! who did it?" " I did it." " When 7" " This morning." The look of astonishment and admiration with which Mr. Butler regarded John, was not unobsorv. ed by Lizzy, and led her to meditate on the propri. ety of another retreat to the pantry. She adopted, however, the expedient of holding a cap of coffee to her lips for a very unnccssary length of time. " What 'hall we go at to day, alter we have shocked up the buckwheat?" said Hendricks. "1 don't know; what do you think we had best do • • 44 flare the rye in where we took the cora off." 44 Well, we'll go at it then." In like manner John's advice was asked daily and followed; so that when winter set in the farm presented a very different aspect from that which it usually wore at that time. Commonly some potatoes were frozen up, and some portion of the sowing left undone, in consequence of the froat overtaking the plow. But now every crop was se cured, the grain sown and up quite green, the house banked and quite a string of stone wall made. That the corn was all husked in season; might have been owing to the fact that turning over the new leaf had inspired with the family such a spirit of industry, that Lizzy had joined them in their hue. kings, and took her seat near John, that he might break off the ears that were beyond her strength. It happened on one or two occasions that these two continued their labors lung after Saul and his father had gone to bed. In the course of time it came to this, that Mr. Butler used to ask. John what he was going to do, as though his right to direct operations was un questionable. For example, one morning John ha , a stone boat with several crowbars in at the door. "What are you going to do," asked Mr. Butler. "I rim going to build a piece of stone wall on the east side of the meadow, The ground is high enough for a wall to stand, end there are stone enough on the knoll which ought to come out to make it." Mr. Sutler made no reply, but together with Saul went to digging stone." " This looks like a new farm," said Mr. George one day to his neighbor, as they rode by Mr. Butler'. house. " Yes." replied the neighbor, ' there is a new hand at the bellows." Does Hendricks work it on shares ?" " No, he works by the month." " Does he? What makes him drive on so?" "I don't know for certain, but I guess Butler's daughter is at. the bottom of it." When winter set in, Saul, though lie was a good boy to work, felt a desire to have a little moro fur niture in the upper story, and asked leave to go to the Centre to school. " - Uncle Zeb says lie will board me, if I'll come." "I don't see how I can spare you. We must build in the spring, and wo have all the timber to get to the mill," said Mr. Butler. Saul looked rather down-hearted. " You can go," said John, who was sitting be fore the blazing fire, between Saul and Lizzy. "I'm going to stay, that is, if they will let me. I tell you what it is," turning to Mr. Butler," if you will give me this critter," laying his hand upon Lizzy's arm, "I'll stay and work for you at any lay you choose." Lizzy turned very red, but neither run for the pantry, nor pushed away John's hand. Well, 'said Mr. Butler, who had recently ecen what things were coming to, •• that must be pret ty much as you and she can agree, must n't it mot her ?" " I guess so," said Mrs. Butler, dropping several stitches in a stocking she was knitting for John. "There won't be much difficulty about it then, I guess," said John. "Saul may go to school. He may go to college if he has a mind. I can got his support out of the farm without hurting any body, I reckon." Then turning to tizzy, he said, "the road is good and Jack wants to stir himself, and I want you to go over to mother's. Suppose you jump into the:wagon and ride with me." tizzy looked towards her mother and rosy up, and went to put her things on. The horse was soon at the dour, and Liny was soon at John's mother's, and John's mother was soon introduced to Lizzy, who soon became her daughter•in•law, that is to say, on Now Year's ere.
