Some 'have moved into costly houses,
And their friends hare all came and

splendid arrangements for . happiness,
And they hav gone away and committed

without fear. It is natural to be san-

-and watch the bride in her white attire,
and with her similine face and her soft
yes moving before me in their pride of
life, weave a waking dream of her future
happiness, and persuade myself that it
jrill be true. . I think how they will sit
upon the luxurious sofa as the twilight
Jails, and build ray hopes, and murmur
'ia low 40068 forbidden tenderness; and
how thrillingly the allowed kiss, and the
beautiful endearments of wedded lite,
Trill make even their parting joyous,
rind how gladly come back from the crowd
-and the empty mirtn of the gay to eaen

self that young creature, who blushes
feven now at his hesitating caress, listen

with' an affection as undying as his pulse,
folds her to his bosom, I can feel the
tide that goes flowing through the heart,

as she moves about for the kind offices

I say I love to dream thus when I

the natural tendency" of feeling touched
by loveliness, that fears nothing . for it-
self ; and if I ever yield to darkened feel

E02ESPIESSE.
Frequently, when stiffly standing in
his olive-colored coat, with fixed eye,
contracted brow, and shrill voice, accom
panied by hard gestures, Bobespierre
was pleading at the tribune for the
people's cause. Mirabeau, in the midst
of whisperings and mockeries, had been
seen to contemplate in pensive curiosity
that man pale-visaged and strangely
smiling, whose physiognomy breathed
forth, as it were, a dream of gentleness,
in whom all things spoke of a passion for
order, and who appeared full of respect
for himself so careful was he of his
attire, so grave in his speech. "Who
might this new comer be, on whom lin
gered thus the presentiments of genius,
and what part was he to play in the
revolution ? He was to demand justice
for all men for all without exception ;
he was to be the preacher of right.
W ith him there was to be no compro
mise : for is not truth one ? Let . no
party claim him ; he is of the party of
bis own convictions: tbat sumces. At
his first step in the career where he was
to leave the trace of his blood and
name of Hie Incorruptible. As
simple advocate, honest people quoted
his integrity ; a legislator, the wicked
feared him. Always ready to defend
the people, he knew not how to flatter
them: he had at once too much pride
and too much virtue. In the midst of
a society in disorder, he worshipped
regulation. Anarchy he abhorred, if o-
pufarity, to be earned by cynical habits
and language, he despised, lie never
concealed his disdain for extravagances
in theory or action. Yet Freron ad
mired him. Herbert respected him,
and he forced Marat to praise him. His
life was laborious, austere : his manners
did honor to his principles. Others,
among known tribunes, might display
suspicious opulence, sup by the light of
golden chandelers, and intoxicate them'
selves with wine and luxury. He oo
cupied. in the . Hue Saintonge, f
wretched apartment, shared and half
paid for by a companion of his youth.
He soent scarcely thirty sous for his
meals, went on foot where duty called
him, and out of his salary as deputy,
piously diminished by an annuity paid to
his sister could not . always set aside
sufficient to buy him a coat. But if there
are imperfections which an imperfect
nature willingly covers with its sympa
thy, there are weaknesses which we
adore, and these Robespierre had not.
Something impenetrable enveloped
his mind. His virtue, like a sickly
str, shone without beaming. Even on
the lips which commonly opened only to
exalt him, it seemed as if his presence
checked light praises and familiar smiles.
"When he spoke of mercy, he awakened
fear. Yet, at Arras where he was born,
his childhood, we are assured, had
given evidence of frank and of charm
ing tastes. Although already inclined
to serious meditations, laughter, even
to tears, came easily to him ; an aviary
in those times formed his republic.
Early an orphan, hp tenderly loved his
brothers, and idolized his sisters : next
to them came his dear birds. Later,
when he left the College of Louis le
Grand, the doors of which had been
opened .for him by the affection of. the
Abbe de Waast, and where he had ua-
mille Dcsmoulins for fellow-pupil, his
thoughts began to turn tSwards love,
and took form in gallant verses. He
entered the society of the Roissat, cele
brated the light songaster of Vert-
Vert, in a tone worthy of his hero,
and earned the academical crowns ef
his province. .What shall, we add?
The oath which M'lle Dcshortis swore
to him, that she would never be anoth
er s, but .only nis tnat oatn oi love
broken in absence plunged him into
prodigious and unaffected grief.
EES. ALEXANDER Hi MILTON.
The correspondence of J. B. K., as
it appeared in the Detroit Inquirer, re
ferred to the meeting of Mrs. H. with
Aaron Hxtrk on a steamboat, while
coming up the Hudson. " Lang Syne,"
acontnbutor to the Boston Irunscnpt,
thus corrects J. B. K. :
The statement is probably correct,
except in some slight details relating to
the lady. He mentions that a " large
lady, richly dressed in black, and veiled,
whUe standing directly opposite to Aaron
Burr on the steamboat, put her veil aside,
and, raising her eyes across the table,
saw him directly opposite, and with his
eyes upon her, and only separated by
the width of the table." Ho doubt the
sequel is correct.'. She might have given
a scream, and fallen, and on being taken
out, have refused to continue in the
boat or go further with the murderer of
her husband. This would be quite na
tural ; but in one respect, probably the
interest and agitation of the moment
deceived the narrator in his- transient
view of Mr. ' Hamilton. She was al
ways uncommonly small and delicate in
her appearance, and in her youth stri
kingly handsome. After her husband's
untimely death, she retired from the
gay world and even to this day, retains
the widow's dress of that period, which
is remarkably plain, and much more
conventional than is worn now. The
closely bordered cap, closing over her
hair, now bleached by time, but then
in its glossy beauty ; the simple black
bombazine robe, without an ornament ;
the close black bonnet and crape veil
such has been her constant attire
and the description of her as a "large
and richly dressed, lady " could not be
identified. Her life, for many years
after the dreadful event which put .our
whole country in mourning, was devoted
to acts of charity. She was President
or Directress to many of the New
York charitable institutions, and devoted
a large part of her time to the Orphan
Asylum. How much she was honored
and respected by all its members, many
can bear witness.
" Some there are who may recollect
her on a visit to Boston we think more
than ten years ago. It so happened
that a -horticultural celebration was
about to take place at Fancuil Hall,
and this distinguished lady, was invited
and placed in the desk by the side of
the President of the institution. There
were clergymen and other dignitaries;
but she was the only woman admitted
to the desk or pulpit. In the course of
various addresses made from- the table
below, richly loaded with flowers, fruits,
&o. Webster arose and begged leave
to announce that the daughter of Gen.
Schuyler and the widow of Gen. Hamilton
was then present ; and with his own hap
py and thrilling reminiscences he dwelt
on the departed. Mrs. Hamilton laid
aside her black bonnet and arose. All
was silent attention. Those who sat
near enough could .f ead the tender and
touching emotions of her countenance.
She turned to the President and address
ed him. He immediately, in a graceful
and appropriate manner . uttered the
sentiments she expressed to him, and
requested him to make known. When
she left the desk and descended to tho
side, there was somethim? truly - con
genial to our republic, and beautiful in
the simplicity of her manner and the
respect showed to her in our national

waited. She walked through the aisle

manner, and the silent, respectful horn.
age of the people seemed to contain
clear and beautiful demonstration of
republican truth and sincerity. Mrs.
Hamilton now resides at Washington
and is blessed with the love and care of
a devoted daughter. She has her re
ception mornings, and is active in wel
coming friends. She does not go into
general society, but a year or two since
was present, by particular desire, ' at
one of the President's levees, who, with
her slight but still graceful figure sup
ported by the President's arm, was
proud to introduce to each of his nu
merous guests such a specimen of nearly
a century past.
THE HANTAC GIRL.
The editor of tho American Republi
can printed at V estchester, fenn., speak
ing of a story published in the Even.
Fost, entitled " The Vngest Night in
life," says:
It has brought vividlv toonrmind
thrilling incident which happens to be
within our own knowledge, and can
not forbear trying, in our poor way, to
tell the tale. The intelligent and highly
respectable gentleman to whom the oc
currence happened is now a resident of
this borough, and in every particular the
story is strictly true. '
A number of years since, the individu
al to whom we allude was a pupil at
a scnooi in . mis county, boarding at a
farm-house about one mile distant from
the Academy. I he house was one of
those built at different periods of time,
and presenting a long-extended front to
the road-side. It was situated in the
gorge of a lonely wood, and just below
it ran a deep, dark ravine, which was
the haunted ground of the neighbor
hood for- it is well known that everv
neighborhood has its haunted ground.
j. ne sleeping apartments ot the family
were in the extrme end of the house, while
that occupied by their boarder fur
thest removed from them possible. One
night he remained late at a lecture deliv
ered to the school and by the time he
arrived the family had all retired, it be
ing past, tne nour ot eleven o'clock.
He passed into the house and immedi
ately went up to his chamber. The
reflected light - of the moon shone in the
room, and as he entered the doorway
and turned towards his bed, there stood
at the side of it, a figure dressed in white,
dimly apparent to him through the
shadowy moonlight.
He was, as may well be supposed.
a m
lerror-Btricsen. .turning lor a mo
ment from the apparation towards the
window, to see if it were not a fantastic,
caused by the moonlight falling on some
object in the apartment, his eye again
looked for the strange sight, but it was
gone, without the slightest perceptible
noise. V it n his whole nervous system
completely unstrung, he however suc
ceeded at length in covincing himself
ana laia down, but not to slecn for
there was too much agitation to do so.
He lay in this wakful state for about
three-quarters of an hour, when he
thought he felt the bed slowly raised
beneath him. He again succeeded
in persuading himself that he was de
ceived and attributed this to the effects
of the intense fear and consequent ner
vous excitement of the first strange ap
pearance.
After another period of time, the
same rising of the bed was felt and on
this occasion he half arose, leaned
over and looked partially under the bed,
and listened with the most intense ear
nestness ; but not the slighest noise, even
of respiration, on any of the different
occasions came to his ear. He again
strove to dismiss the fearful subject
from his mind, and at length, by excess
of weariness, fell into an uneasy and dis
turbed sleep, which must have lasted for
some two hours. He was aroused from
this uneasy repose by something between
a . piercing shriek and a frienzied laugh
unearthly in its tone,breaking upon his
ear in -the dead silence of the night, and
immediately at his side.
The unusual and horrible character
of the cry, with all the preceding cir
cumstances, rendering it difficult, if not
impossible, to represent the intense
and agonizing fear which crept over the
completely unmanned . inmate of that
chamber. Ten years and more have
elapsed since the circumstance occurred,
rand yet, at this distant day, our friend
always relates the incident with an ex
cited 1 tone of voice which indicates
how dreadful were the realities that
surrounded him. He sat up erect in the
bed, with every fibre of his flesh quiv
ering with terror, and with straining eye
and ear, sought to solve the fearful my
stery. Iu the midst of this thrilling and ex
cited state of feeling, there came a
wilder repetition of the mingled scream
and laugh, and says our informant, "it
was such a cry as never can be effaced
from my memory." He instantly sprang
from the bed to the floor, and in a deliri
um of fear, dragged the bedstead from
the corner of the room, and there behind
the high head bedstead stood the ap
paration which had presented itself to his
astonished sight, when he first entered
the room on that dreadful night. It
was the figure of a woman clothed in
wnite, with long, black, luxuriant hair
hanging wildly about her person.
It was a maniac girl, from a neighbor
ing house, who came in the afternoon,
during his absence to spend the night,
and had wandered from the room where
the family supposed they had secured
her. When he entered the room she
was standing as he first described her
position and while his eyes was turned
for a moment toward the window, she
silently crept beneath the bed. We
hope the recital of this story may not
have the effect to disturb the repose of
our young or lady readers. If there
are any fears on that subject, we ad
vise them, before locking their chamber
door at night, to look under the . bed,
and into the band-boxes and closets.
After such an examination, they may re
tire without the slightest alarm.

The man who stands upon his own soil,
who feels that by the laws of the land
in which he lives by the laws of civil

clusive owner of the land which he tills,
is by the constitution of our nature un
der a wholesome influence," not easily im

other things being equal more strong
ly than any other character of a man as
the lord of the inanimate world. Of
this great and wonderful sphere, fashion
ed by God and upheld by his power, a
portion of his his from the center to
the sky. It is the space on which the
generations before him moved in its
round of duties : he feels himself connec
ted wi2h those who will fellowship him.
and to whom he is to transmit a home.
Perhaps his farm has come down to
him from his fathers. - They have gone to
their last home ; but he can track their
footsteps over the scenes of their daily
labors. The roof of which shelters him

being, borne interesting domestic . tra

The favorite fruit tree was planted by a
lather s hand. He sported in his boy
hood beside the brook which still winds
through the meadow. : . Through the
fields lies the path to the village school
of earlier days. He still hears from
his window the voice of the Sabbath bell,
which called his fathers and forefathers
to the house of God; and near at hand
is the spot, where his parents are laid to
rest, and where, when his time is come,
he shall be laid by his children. ' These
are the feelings of an owner of the soil,

AGRICULTURE BY STEAM.
JG"A western editor cauions his
readers agains kissing short women, as
the habil has rendered him round shoul
dered. - . - - .
The general applicat ion of steam to me
chanical purposes has in a certain sense
revolutionized the world. But while
nearly all the branches of labor and the
arts have been benefited by it, it is a
singular fact that the powers of steam
have never hitherto been practically ap
plied to lighten the labors and ensure
the success of the agriculturist. The
prospects are, however, that this defi
ciency will soom be removed. It is said
that Mr. Romaine, of Petersburg, Upper
Canada, has invented a steam plow, for
which a patent has been granted in Eng
land, andwhich is said to be far superior
to anything of the kind ever before con
structed or conceived, it comprises a
stout cart, drawn by horses, containing
a steam engine of ten horse power, with
tubular boiler, on the principle of the
locomotive engine, and connecting by
means of a crank aud rods with a large
cylinder, suspended behind and suppor
ted by two smaller wheels, so as to be
independent of the unequal motion of the
horses. This cylinder is six feet in length
and three in diameter, and is armed with
projecting iron prongs, which are so ar
ranged in a spiral position that upon the
revolving of the cylinder they turn up
and effectually pulverize the earth to
any required depth. - The cylinder is
partly enclosed at the back by a box,
against which the earth is thrown and
on the top is a seed roller, with tubes
through which the seed is deposited in
rows, and a roller following after leaves
all smooth And complete.
The weight of the entire apparatus is
ton and a half; but the labor of the
horses is rendered comparatively light
by that of the steam engine, which indeed
leaves little for the horses to do but to
guide the direction. It is believed that
this machine, with the aid of a man and
a boy, would plow, sow and roll ten acres
of land in a day. The first cost of the
apparatus would be considerable; but
the .steam, engine may be applied, to
thrashing and various other farm pur-
poses, so that it would in tne ena materi
ally lessen expenses. wi
' CULTURE OF PIE PLAHl
All who haye had any experience ' in
the matter, are fully convinced of the
luxury and healthfulness of fresh and
succulent substances for pies at all times
of the year. Yet the idea has never sug
gested itself to many, or if it has it is not
practiced upon, that a cycle of such
substances may be had so as to furnish
fresh material through the year. The
Pie Plant furnishes a beautiful link in
this connecting chain, coming, as it does,
when Apples begin to loose their fresh
ness, or, as they are in many families, not
to be found at all, and before Goosber
s, which have .not yet found place
in one garden of twenty to any tolerable
extent. i et how few cultivate the Pie
Plant ! Why, we know not, for nearly
all are fond of il'When properly cooked,
and it can be raised as easily as the Bur
dock when onco introduced into the soil.
Neither of them will grow successfully
in poor soilsjthe Burdock chooses a loca
tion for itself, and the Pie Plant is near
ly always thrust in some poor corner of
tho neglected parden. aTid then blamed -excessively
if it will notproduce large,
fine foot stalks where even common weeds
would refuse to grow, and where no grass
would vegetate, unless it be the ever
intrusive Quack. We once planted some
miserable, puny roots of the Pie Plant
in rich deep soiL The consequence was,
the next year the size of the foot stock
is increased one-half. The following
Autumn before the setting in of frost,
we covered the bed some three or four
inches deep with fresh horse manure.
This kept the roots in fine preservation
through the winter; and early in the
Spring, when the ground was fairly set
tled, the manure was mixed with the
earth by a ' deep and thorough forking.
Nowonder that the vigor of our plants
was increased in a wonderful proportion !
As soon as any buds appeared they were
taken off the leaves were cut as often
as they became large enough for use.
The next Autumn we gave the usual pro
tection of manure, and the following
spring we forked it in. This course we
have followed for four years with some
plants we took from neglected grass land.
Now markthe result : from the miserable,
puny leaves and stalks of the first year's
growth, when the stalks were not more
than six inches lpng and proportionally
slender, we have now large,broad leaves,
and stalks so strong that all who see them
are inquiring where we got our new va
riety of plant, eo luxuriant strong and
beautiful. : 'The - answer ' is conclusive
cultivation has done it ; and the simple
process we have followed if pursued by
others, will on a small piece of land, and
with very little labor, furnish them with
an abundance of pie material at the sea

THE HTXLEHIAL SABBATH.
It will be a day of lasting rest. When
the night that is far spent is completely
exhausted, and the day that shall be is
come fully then there shall be perfect
rest, x no eartn snail have his sabbath,
which it lost by our sin. May shall have
his, in its integrity, and purity.and beau
ty. God rested on the seventh day from
all his work, and hallowed the Sabbath,
and blessed it. I believe there is not a
beast in the field, nor a fish in the sea.
nor a fowl in the air, that has not a right
to the Sabbath, and that shall not yet
have a sabbath ot rest. There is not
laborer in the work-shop, nor a toiling
man in the post-office, nor a clerk in the
counting house, that may not claim the
Sabbath, Next to God's Sabbath is the
right and privilege of the man. Popery
Baps and subtracts both; infidelity impng
nes and denounces both ; by God's grace
will part with neither. And when that
last Sabbath comes the Sabbath of all
creation the heart wearied with, its
tumultuous, beatings, shall have: rest:
the soul fevered with its anxieties, shall
enjoy peace. . The sun of that Sabbath
will never set, or veil his splendors in a
cloud. The flowers that grow in his light
-never fade. Our earthly Sabbath, are
Dut iaint renections ot the heavenly
Sabbath, cast down upon the earth, dim
med by the transit of their rays from
so great a hight and so distant a world.
The fairest land-scapes, or combinations
of scenery upon earth, are but the out
skirts of the paradise of God, are earn
ests and intimations of that which lies
beyond them; and the happiest Sabbath
hearth, wljose every pulse is a Sabbath
bell, hears but a very inadequate echo
of the chimes and harmonies of that Sab
bath, that rest, where we "rest not day
and night," in which the song is ever
new, and yet ever sung. .
THE OLIVES OF GETHSE3IANE.
At the foot of Mount Olive we find
what is now considered the garden of
Gethsemane, memorable as the resort of
our Lord, and as the scire of the agony
which He endured the night He was
betrayed. There is little doubt that
this is the real place of the solemn trans
action. It seems to have been an Olive
plantation in the time of Christ, as the
name Gethsemane signifies oil press.
It is about fifty paces square and -
enclosed by a wall of no great height,
formed of rough loose stones. Eight
very ancient olive trees now occupy
the enclosure, some or which are very
large, and all exhibit symptons of decay
clearly denoting their great age. As a
fresh olive tree springing from the stump
of an old one there is reason to conclude
that even if the old trees that existed in
the time of our Lord have been destroy
ed, those which now stand sprang from
the roots. But it is not incredible that
they should be the same trees. They are,
at least of the times of the Eastern
empire, as is proved by the following
circumstances: In lurkey every olive
tree which was found standing by the
Moslems when they conquered Asia,
a tax oi one meaina to tne treasury,
while each of those planted since its
onquest pays half its produce. Now
the olive tree of Gethsemane pay only
eight medina. Dr. Wild describes the
largest as twenty four feet in girth above
the root, though its topmost branch is
not more than thirty feet from the
ground. Jtiove, who traveled as a
naturalist, asserts that the largest are
at least six yards in circumference and
nine or ten yards high so large indeed
that he calculates their age at 2,000
years. AtcieUm Jerusalem.
