We bent to.day o'er a coffined form,
And tho tears stole softly down.
"We looked our las I on tho aged f co,
With its look of ponce, its patient grac,
And hair like a silrer crown.
Wo touched our wn to the clay cold hand
From a lifo-lo ng labor at rest j
And among the blossoms, white and sweat,
We noted a Lunch of golden wheat,
Clasped close to the silent brtast.
The bloisoms whispered of fadeless blooai
Of a land where fall no tears ;
The ripo wheat told of toil and care,
The patient waiting, the trusting prayer,
The garnered good of the years.
We know not what work her hands had found,
Nor what rugged place her feeot ;
What cross was hers, what blacknoas of night,
Wo saw but the peace, the blossoms whito
And tho bunch of rijened wheat.
As each goes up from the fields of earth,
Roaring the treasures of ifo,
God looks for some gathered grain of good,
For the ripo harvest that shining st ood.
But waiting the roapoi's knife.
Then labor well, that in death you go
Not only with blossoms sweet
Not bent with ooubt and burthened'with foari
And dead, dry husks of the wasted years
But laden with gold cn wheat

Ancient Mounds on the Rocky
From the Denver News.
An account was recently given of the opn
mg or an ancient mound in southern Utah,
isnilar to those of the Mississippi valley, in
which wrr found relics of the Hnknown build
ers, indicating much artistic skill. It was
stated that this wag the first evidence found of
the exigence of the Mound-Builders west of
the rocky Mountains. We urn now able to
nnounce, for the first time, as we suppose, the
discovery of similar mounds, evidently built by
tnu same race, bijju up oir iuv oooay moun
The discovery was made by Mr. 0. A. Deane,
of this city, while at work on a government sur
vey, in the mountains, a few weeks since. He
found upon the extreme summit of the snowy
range, structures of stone, evidently of very
ancient origin, and hitherto unknown or un-
oticed, that cannot fail to be of great interest
to the antiquarian. Opposite to and also north
of the head of south Boulder erealc, and on the
summit of the range, Mr. Deane and his party
obsetved large numbers of the granite rocks,
many of them as large as two men eould lift,
in a position that could not have bean the re
sult of chance. They had evidently been
placed upright in a line, conforming to the
general contour of the dividing ridjje, and fre
uently extending in au unbroken line for one
or two hundred yards. Many of the stones
have fallen over orare leaning, while others re
tail! their upright position. In two places,
connected with this line are mounds of Stone,
oosely lail up, about two feetin height and em-
racing a circular area of about ten feet in di
ameter, lhe stones were ovidently collected
on the spot as the surface is cleared for a space
of several yards around the structures, These
ines and mounds of stone bear every mark of
extreme antiquity, as the disintegrated granite
has accumulated to a considerable depth at
their base, and the rocks in the mounds are
moss-grown. The feature raore particularly
identifying these structures with those of the
Mound-Builders elsewhere, is, that they present
at intervals projections pointing to the west
ward. We are thus particular in the description
of these Bocky Mountain mounds, which are
extraordinary in position if not in character, in
the hope that antiquarians visiting the territory
maybe induced to examine them. It would
not involve much labor to open them, and pos
sibly thty cover relics which may add some
thing to our small stock of knowledge of the
ancient race who constructed these and similar
works all over the continent.
The walls and mounds we have described
are situated three thousand feet above the tim
