One Sunday afternoon, in mmimcT time, the vil

Every brealh of nir, howevpr, had died nwny be

Then Amy stepped quickly over the low pardon
hcd;;e, heedless that it tore lier only Sunday frock,
' knelt before the little windmill, nnd blew with nil
her mi;.dit upon its slender sails. Thus impelled,
they were soon in merry motion, ns nt first. Then
the sick child lunched, und chipped his little hands ;
t and Amy, delighted at his pleasure, wee never
weary of urging tho bails round and rouud with
' her breath.
. At last, the child, tired out by the joy which the
little windmill had (?ivcn him, fell fast nsleep. nnd
Amy, waruod by tho evening shadows which began
to gathor round her, turned her stops towards home.

Then Amy bowed her head liko the withered ;

ground, her mother, with loud I'auiontntions,
sprang forward and kneeled beside her. Even the
utern and nngry man, suddenly soberod by his

So both tho parents wept nnd mourned over
' Amy, nnd laid her upon her littlo couch, in the 1
small inner chamber, and utrcwed around her green

Amy, behold a wondor!
1 ' Tho door of tlio chamber gently oponed, and the
waves of tho brook which Amy had set free, enme
rippling by. in t'.o stillness, and sprinkled tlio
mouth and eyes of tho dead child. Tho cnol drops
flowed into her vein nnd unco more set the urrcst

'Then sho again unclosed her eyes, which so late
had been dim nnd inntiouloss, nnd sho heard the
soft waves, liko gentlo voices, murmuring these

"THERE'S A LINEING OF SILVER TO

Iid it sablo cloud
Turn forth her silver lining on the night."-MiLfox.
One winter night dreary,
Injected nnd weary,
I kept my louo viil of sorrow nnd caro :
My heart full to breaking
.My soul seeking comfort mid finding dispair!
All wildly and chilly,
The w ind whistled shrilly,
Drifting tho clouds o'er a desolnto sky
Low moaned the ocean
In ceaseless commotion,
Dashing the sprny of its billows ou high!
The young moon was beaming,
Struggling by 6ts through each gathering cloud;
Faint light now shedding.
Dark shades now spreading,
Over the moonshine their vapory shroud!
All! thus," thought I sighing,
"From birth to our dying,
Man's couro is a struggle through trial and gloom
Joy givos scarce it promise
Th at Grief rends not from us
O'er tho light of our life looms the shade of the
But soon to my wonder,
Tho cloud burst asunder,
And down through tho fUsuro now streamed tho
Soft fell its splendor,
So holy and tender,
In shower of shoen on tho face of tho night!
While, nil the cloud's m argent
Was gleaming like argent,
Though earthward still sullen and dark was its
I knew that towards heaven
Its brightness was given
A lining of silver spread over the cloudl
Then my soul rose in gtadness, j
And shook off its sadness,
I felt God can turn all our darkness to light
To day whnt is sorrow
Make joy on tho morrow
Dry tears tlmt arc hiding his smiles from our tight!
I lookej up confessing
Thnt trial is blessing
To Hill if each grief bo spread out and avowed;

LIFE IN NEBRASKA.
Xow that Congress, tho politicians nnd the people
are talking of .Nebraska, it mny be interesting for
our readers to nccompnny us to the territory itself,
and see wbero and what it is, who iuhubit it, or
life in Nebraska.
In visiting this unorganised torritory, upon
which there is now so much dispute, we must Urst
go by any route we chooso to the city of St. Louis,
lloro wo will take a steam lost and Uoat for hund
reds of miles to the mouth of tlio Kansas river.
Wo land here, jind nro in the region culled Nebras
ka. If w e were pleased to take another steamboat,
we could go tip tho Kansas river, or nearly west,
towards the interior.
But let us prefer rather to continue our voyage
up tho Missouri, still by steamboat, for lomo hun
dreds of miles. We are now nt the mouth of the
riutto river, or tho .Vobrindta, which means "Shnl
low Bottom." ' It is rightly named, for though it is
from ono to threo miles wido, it is, generally very
shallow, and steamboats pas up' its waters lor

in a single year, HI bushels of corn, Uli'JO of
wheat, l'.'.iH.O of outs, nnd tlti.OtiO melons of all
kind. They luuo Inrgo iiumLers of horse and

Of whites, permanently living in Nebraska,
there are but few, and these are oither military
men stationed at son.o of the forts, or else Indian
agents, or else missionaries sent out by the various
religious denominations of the States, It is true,
thcro are always more or less white travelers pass
ing to California, to Orogon, to 1't.ih, or New
Mexico, or returni.ig from thence, which gives no
inconsiderable variety to the lives of those who
are confined there. Indeed, it is now stated that
a newspaper i immediately to be printed at old
Fort Kearney, nnd that a post-otlice is to be estab
lished only forty miles from it, for the benefit of
the emigrants, who may write home from thnt
point, that "they have gone so far, safe end sound,

prairie dogs, wild horses, and occasionally n grii-
bear crosses the path of tho trnvcller. The
prnirio dog is nllicd to the marnvd. They abound
west of tho Mississippi, living by the hundreds j
tinder ground. I
Col. Fremont and party dug for one in their .
journey, but did not succeed to find him. These
dogs nro nbout tlio sine ot n rabbit or wood-1
chuck. Their bark is sharp, like tlmt of a small ,
f tho emigrant is hungry, ho mounts his horse,
gives chase to a herd of hulVnloes, if so bo ho can
shoot one, for tho dinner of him nnd his. Ho
chooses to kill a cow, rather thnn a bull, if ho
can, as her ment is more tender. If there is not
enough of the Kit Carson about him to follow and
lay prostrate a buffalo, he tries his hand at a deer,
an antelope, or a good turkey. There is no want
of wild meat to tlio omigrnnt, tho mere traveller,
or the resident, if ho has the skill to take it.
All accounts ngree that the prairies of this re
gion arc covered with the most beautiful flowers:
on a clear day, tho prospoct is truly enchanting
paradisaical. Tho rose is abundant there, ns is
the sun-flower. A botanist accompanied Fremont
in both his expeditions, and in his book aro' given
tho scientific, as well as the popular names of
multitudes of Nebraska plants.
This region is not heavily timbered ; still, there
is a largo variety of trees, among which nre tho
most that abound with ourselves. The cotton-wood
treo is abundant unon tho rivers.
The climate is very dry, and yet we read of no
complaints of drought. Fremont, in giving an
account of the weather, has recorded sixteen clear
days in the summer in succession, which is a rec
ord that could bo hurdly mndo of any New Eng
but what is to be the future of Nebraska f If
it teems with life now, it is the life of wild animals,
