but the woman continued insolently to deny Oi y Vy -U i d
her cuilt, and accused the child of lying, in
revenge for having been whipped the night
before. This rasa assertion instantly con
firmed her guilt, for it was quite evident a
child of five years old could never invent
such a story, and the burst of indignation
against the mother lor her unnatural charge
told the strong feeling that was already awa
kened against her. The girl was still over
come with terror and kept in awe by the
mother's frowns, so that it required long per
suasion and promises of protection before she
would reveal where the money was hidden.

A SISTER'S THOUGHTS OVER A
BY KEV. JOHN PIERPONT.
He sleeps in peace! Death's cold eclipse
His radiant eyes hath shrouded o'er,
And Slander's poison, from the lips
Of woman, on his heart no more
Distils, and burns it to the core.
He sleeps in peace! The noble spirit
That beamed forth from his loving brow,
xTompt, at the shrine of real merit,
With reverence and with truth to bow,
Is, by false tongues, not trouble now.
He sleeps in peace! And while he sleeps,
The tears a sister for him weeis:
He knows not that they're not his wife's
iiis uougnts are all another Ule s.
I hope he knows not that the hand,
Once given to him, is now another's
l Know, the name that once it fanned
I hope he knows not that his child
Hears not, nor knows, its father's name:
Keep its young spirit undehled,
And worthy of its father's fame,
O Thou from whom its spirit came!
Thou Father of the fatherless,
The mantle that my brother wore
The robe of truth and faithfulness
Keep, for his infant, in thy store:
My brother hath left nothing more !
That mantle! Men had seen him throw
It amply round him, ere it fell:
Peace, brother, 'tis as white as snow;
No one of all on earth that dwell,
Can stain what once became thee well,
Inopeace thou sleepest: through the bars
Of its dim cell thy spirit fled;
And now thy sister and the stars
Their tears of dew and pity shed,
Heart-broken brother, on thy bed !

Last thoughts were of my love and mother's after some further search, (in which the pole

occupied some time, and when at length a
vent was opened, the impetuous rush of the
water swept away near the whole bank of
the pond upon the hill side, letting off the flood
at one bound, followed by a mass of pitch,
black mud, dead logs, fresh water turtles, cat
hsh, paddocks, eels, water snakes, and all the
strange tenants of the pool. Still the body
did not appear, and after a thorough examin
ation of the black bottom of the pond, vague
suspicions ot some other kind of rogue rv be
gan to be entertained by the crowd. The
child was again examined, the pond was
again scraped, the "interval," over which
the dark sediment and filth of the pond now
lay a loot deep, was carelully inspected in
