I giro thee back thy glittering ring,
Tho little, shining band of gold ;
For It, to me doth sorrow bring
Sorrow and misery nntold.
Take it, and wear it for my sake.
All I no my heart's too proud to hronV.
I give thee back the pledges, all
I givo thco back thy freedom too ;
And think not, thongh my tears may fall,
Those falling drops are hnt for you."
Ah, no I but for my love and trnt
That now are trailing low in dust.
Ah, can yon give these back to me,
That I, so freely, cave to yon t
I tlow return; all, all to thee ;
Thou canst not, for thon art nntnte. '
Where now is my pure trust and love f
Gone ; love no more my heart shall niovo.
And canst thon givo me back my heart f
The gay young heart I gave to thco
Unscathed by e'en n stnelo dart
Oh ! canst thon give It back to me t
Thon canst not, for 'its scared and old j
Its warmth and brightness, dark and cold.
And thns we part. Ah, Henvcn I wo two,
Who held each other onco so dear ;
Who vowed forever to bo true
Yet now we part without a tear.
Each with A sad snd restless heart,
We tread this dreary world apart.

THE PERJURED GOLDSMITH.
A modest and exceedingly pretty pirl,
plainly attired, entered one of tin? gold
smith's stores ou street, aud seeing; a jren-
tlc limn was etiifuirod with the proprietor, she
timidly shrunk usile until lie should bu nl
leisure. The assistants were also occupied
with customer-, whoso dress ami appearance
showed th "in to belong to the rich ami upper
circles, and so she wus suffered to remain Cur
some time standing there before she could
lie nttetiiled t
The gentleman was a fine, noble looking
person, with a remarkably polished address,
who, seeing her waiting, stood usidu nud
said to the goldsmith:
"Do not occupy yourself with me now,
Mr. Uroachurd: I can examine the watches
by myself while yon sec what this young
person wants, who has been waiting here so
long and patiently to get un opportuui'y to
spenk to you."
"What do yon wish, Miss?" asked the
goldsmith, with a look that Conveyed a re
proof of her interrupting him whilefengaged
with a customer oT more vultio to him. .
The girl hesitatingly approached tho coun
ter, and taking from her -bosom a small gold
clasp, bent over to him, aud said, iu a lyw,
trembling voice: , . . ;i '
" I wish, sir, you would be so kind as to
keep this u few days, and let mo have; seveu
dollars ou it.
Low as she spoke, her soft, trembling
touus reached the ears of McIIuury,- 'he gen
tleman who was present, lie turned to ob
serve her face and hour the reply of tho gold
smith to this timid and painfully uttered re
quest, Tho goldsmith took tho clasp neoiii
fully bctwecu his fingers and threw it dowu,
when ho Raid shtii'jily to her:
"This is no pawnbroker's shop, girl: and
if it was, that thing is nut worth two dol
ltirs." " It is of inestimable raluo to me, sir
it is the only thing valuable that I have,"
she answered, earnestly, and her cheek slight
ly flushed at tins ruilo reply.
"I don't know what vou mav value it at,'
he ans.vcivd, witli a cool laugh, glancing at
Colonel McIIcnry, whom ho saw severely
eveing In iu. ' 1 would not give you six
shillings for it."
" But, sir." pleaded tho girl, " I must
have seven dollars to-day, and I havo no
other way of getting it; 1 was iu hopes, sir,
that you might let mo havo the sum on it.
I will certainly come back and tako it up
"I tell vou," answered he, angrily,
keep no pawnbroker's shop ; go to
" Ther won't give mo but two dollars; and
1 want seven.
" And so yon think to get it of m"??"
The youug girl was about to speak again,
but, as if not knowing what farther nrgu
ment to urge, hesitated and turned slowly
away, when she checked herself aud again
siiokn to him.
"Sir, sua said, m a tunning tone oi
earnest entreaty, " my mother is lying very
II, and our rent is duo ut twelve o clock to
day, und the person we sew for. having dis
appointed us id our pay, 1 uave uo oilier re
source thau this. Oh, sir, will you not take
this clusn only fur a few days, and I will
then repay vou?"
Mr. Urochurd felt that Colonel Mclieury a
eyes were upon him waiting'au aaswer, aud
he wished him to think nun a man or uusi
uess, (which meant, iu his notion, a man
without a heart,) he answered promptly and
"ao. Do you tiiiuli we are simpletons
here? If you have nothing nioro to say
please stand aside for customers."
" Well, uoiouei, wuai oo you iuiiik oi
those? They are the latest importation, full
jeweled, aud warrauted iu all points. I will
sen you tue one you uave just tuiu uuwu iur
one hundred aud uiuetv-hve dollars.
The geutlemuu, however, was not heeding
him, but watching the youug girl, whom he
saw leaving the counter with a ueuvy, droop
ing step, uud approach the door. Her face
had struck him .for its. sweet, intelligent
loveliuess, -and her modesty bad for nim an
irresistable charm; but her plea of poverty
deeply interested his feelings aud eulisted
them in uer Penult, lie had Bileuiij watch
ed the progress of her interview with emo
lions of contempt for oue aud pity for the
other. h , .' J : k,.
. Her hand was on the knob of the door,
when advancing toward her he said: i
"You asked, I believe, for seven dollars?
lie spoke with gentle interest in his tone
that at once awakened a hope iu her heart
aud again brought the light to her eyes, and
toe hue to her cheeks, as tnc diui letitiy an
" Yes, sir, I should not have been so ur-
".None too much so. There is n ten dol

" Sir, you nro too kind "
" Xot a word I am hnppy to do you a

ed to offer it to you, since the gentleman
says it is so valueless.
ISut to me it is as
foolishly thought it
valuuble as file, and L
must bo so to others."
I don't wnnt it, child," answered Mc-
llenry, feelingly, putting his hand aside
while she urged it upon him.
" Indeed, sir, you must take it, for 1 shall
feel iu some degree under obligations to a
tranger. Hesides, I wish to- call and re
deem it. Will you givo mo your address,
ir?" And as she spoke, ho still declining
the jewel, she laid it on the show box.
"Ult, no matter but it you lusist, it is
the United Stales Hotel." '
Thank you, sir, vou can never know the
blessing of others that will follow your
kindness to me to-duy." Thus speaking and
and looking upou him with nu expression of
gratitude in her tearful eves, she left the
hop, forgetting the golden clasp which she
had left upon the show case.

Xo, sir," answered the gentleman,
sternly, and taking his gloves and cane ho
walked from tho shop of the avaricious gold
smith, who, too close to risk a trifle to re
lieve the wants of a poor family, probably
lost a larire amount of purchases his wealthy
customer might have made, as well as his
owu respect, such as it was, for avarice al
ways sinks into its shell beforo the broad
sun of benevolence.
" Now there goes a man who throws away
h'is money upon vugra'its, while I ueed mine
to support my family," said the goldsmith,
looking after him. " lie thinks me a miser
and I think him a fool. Ob! here is the
clasp, ufter all, she left for hitn on the show
case, and he was too proud to tako it away

I lieu looking around among bis shop boys
to 8io if he was observed, be carefully, yet
with a cheerful air, locked the clasp up in a
private drawer, and taking out the key,
placed it in his pocket I lo had hardly done
so when Colonel Mcllenry reentered, aud
without speaking or even looking at him, he
cast his eyes upon the showcase for the clasp,
which he recollected, alter going out, tno
ouiig girl had laid down but did no'- tako up
again, and so turned nneu lortt.
Abraham Brochurd was busily engaged in
replacing, the watches in tne uoc sum cover-
niis, and preserving silence ami ignorance.
At length Colonel Mcllenry spoke:
" 1 hat youug persou luid her clasp on this
use, sir, which 1 neglected io pick up. It
s .i pity it should bu losi, shu valued it so
" The clasp! Oh, no, 1 have not seen it,

Several days had elupsed, and Colonel Me
Henry had (mite forgotteu the circumstuueo
wo have narrated, when, as ho was passing
leisurely along tho street, he felt his sleeve
suddenly pulled by some one ho heard ruu-
behind him, and looking arouud he be
held, with a cheek glowing with pursuit, the
girl ho had seen at the goldsmith shop.
Oil, sir, 1 am so liuppy to lrave louuu

do so, and that I was not deceived iu my es
timation of you.,
You must tuke it. sir, -said sue, wnn
ingenuous earnestness. " I should be dis
tressed to be longer under pecuniary obliga
tions to an eutiro stranger, liesides that, I
would be very glad to have my clasp, if you

where vou luid it dowu?" lie asked with em

It was given to me by by"
" Lfv a sweetheart." added ho, smiling.
" He is now dead, Bir," she addod, with
' You do well to value it. I did not take
it up. Are you sure that you left it there?"
" Yes, sir, hopiugyou would take it ana
keen it until I paid you the money."
" Well, my child, I have not got it, hut I
believe the goldsmith has. . Let us go to
him. , . - ,
On their arrival at the shop, Mr. Brochard
denied ever having seeu it ttiuce she weut
oat. and that he saw her take it with her and
place it iu her bosom, as she left the shop.
The young lady turned pale aud inconceiva
bly distressed. - i '
r Come with me. ' I will find the clasp for
you," said Colonel McIIenry, offering bis
arm and leaving the goldsmiths with her.
" I do hope I shall find it. sir, she said
as they walked along. " It was Kobert'i
last gift. It was triven him iu Cuba by
rich lady whoso life he had saved from the
water. He was a sailor, sir, aud had little
to lcavo mo but his memory und my poor
clasp.' Oh, sir, If it is lost I never shall for
give inj-self for offering to pledge it But,
sir, our extremity wus very great."
Colonel Mcllenry stopped lit the Justice's
offioe, and briefly and clearly mndo his com
plaint, oud in a few momeut3 Mr IJrochnrd
was brought iuto tho presence of the magis
trate. He appeared to be in great tiepidalion and
was pale as ashes ; he had been suddenly
taken without waruing from behind tho coun
ter, leaving his shop iu charge of his astou
ished assistants. Colonel Mcllenry and the
young lady, being sworn, deposed that they
last saw the clasp on the snow case, where
each went out aud left it ; the former further
deposed that he had not gone three steps
from the door beforo ho returned and found it
missing, aud no oue was iu the vicinity but
The goldsmith was then called up to be
sworn to his knowledge of the facts. He ap
proached the stand where the magistrate held
iiieciiite, lam nis Hand upon it with a per-
ceptible tremor of the body; but love of
money was stronger than the fear of the law,
and he took tho oath. It appeared as if be
would sink through the floor when he took
it, but the moment it wus done he recovered
his audacity. At this moment an officer who,
at tho suggestion of Colonel Mcllenry, bad
been privately dispatched by tho justice with
a search warrant to the shop of the gold
smith, now entered and placed something in
the magistrate's bauds, after briefly whisper
ing to him.
" Did yon over see this gold ornament be
fore?" asked the magistrate, holding up the
clasp before the youug lady's eyes.
"Oh, it is my clasp it is my clasp!" she
cried, springing forward.
" Yes it is the same," answered tho Col
onel. " Aud did you ever see it before?" de
manded the justice, sternly, holding it in tho
direction of the goldsmith, who had seen it
at first, and was appalled with fear and con
sternation. Instead of replying, he uttered
a wild hysterical laugh, and full his length iu
in convulsions on the floor.
He was a few weeks afterward taken from
his prison and tried for perjury; but his rea
son forsook 1iim and he is tiow an inmate of
the madhouse. Thus avarice, and parsimony,
aud indifference to the sufferings of tho poor
are punished in this life; the acts of the sel
fish inau will show how acquisitiveness, if
wrongly directed, is fatal to the possessor.
Colonel Mcllenry proved to be a bachelor,
and though a little over thirty, his heart
was keeuly ulive to all the sensibilities of
our nature. . He could feel for the down
trodden poor, and sympathize with unfor
tuuates. To this truth none could more at
test than the youug friend of the golden
clasp, for ere two moons had elapsed, she re
joiced m the euphonic title ot Mrs. colonel
Mcllcnrv, surrounded with all the appliances
of wealth that a grateful heart could enjoy,
or even wUI.. iler poor, afllicted mother
was well provided for, wheu she recovered
her health, and happiness aud prosperity

Sad Scene in Court A Woman Setenoea
to be Hang.
Kute O'Brien, who , murdered Bridget
McDermot in Buffalo, was on Saturday sen'
tenced to be executed on the 18th of De
cember next. When usked if she had any
thing to. say why the judgment of tho law
should not bo passed upon ber, she arose ami
delivered an incoherent appeal lo the court.
She spoke in a low voice, und ber words were
broken by sobbing, so that it was impossible
to catch all that she said. Its substance
was that she had killed Bridget McDermot,
but that she was so mnch under the influ
ence of liquor that she did not remember
the commission of tho deed. 8he was out
of her senses. She spoke of her children,
of whom she has two, a boy and a girl, and
expressed the wish to bo permitted to see
them. She alluded to JSelhe Rbeelian, "the
witch of the patch," in whose boose the loul
deed was perpetrated, ond charged that she
was the cause of the murder, because she
hail furnished the liquor. Xellie (the mur
deress said) was a bad woman. Xext she al
luded to the woman at whoso house she had
obtained the axe, chargiug the responsibility
of the crime upon her because she did uot
tako tue weapon Irom ber, and mado incohe
rent mention of some other woman, from
whom nn axe had been taken under similar
circumstances. At this poi lit she broke
down, sobbing piteously, but recovered par
tial command oi ncrselt in a lew momeuts,
aud went on in a rumbling appeal to all
present. She said there were several old
meu on the jury who might meet their
Maker before she did, and they would
then know what she had suffered.
She implored compassion, saving that
she had worked for many respectable people,
mentioning Ur. ltochester, Air. l illmore,
and others, nud they would all testify to her
good character. In the course of her re
marks she alluded to the possibilty of ber
never coming out of prison, which showed
that she did not expect the extreme sentence
of the law.
At the conclusion of her remarks Judge
Masters pronounced the sentence, and as the
last words were spoken the trembling woman
seemed to realizo her doom and burst iuto a
passion of weeping, the sound of her sobs
tilling the courtroom as sue was led away.

The San Francisco Earthquakes
Special correspondence of the World.
San Francisco, Cal., Oct 22, 18C8:
During the rebellion, scares uud panics
were common in invaded and beleaguered
cities of the Atlantic states, but ttie worst
of these scares was light compared with the
pauic from which the citizens of Shu Fran'
cisco suffered yestoiduy by the visitation of
an earthquake. .The first shock occured
about five minutes of eight o'clock in the
morning. The weather wus dull and foguy,
and tho atmosphere threatened rain. In
fact, it was not snch weather at all as we
usually find accompnnyiug earthquakes '
Hot, oppressive weather, without a breath'
of air, with an unnatural, stillness generally
over the fuce of nature, are generally its ac-
compunimeuts. The shocks, were contiuu- .
ous, aud increased in strength ior ncuny a
minute. The last was tho worst. The earth
wus plainly seen to uudulvte by those who
were in the open air.
I was sitting at' breakfast with my wiTo,
children, and mother-in-law, when the first
occurred. My wife nervously asked me,
"What's that?" I replied that it was a
heavy wagon passing, but a glance showed
me that no vehicle was ueur. I had hardly
spoken when tho second und heavier shuck
came, and my wile, with the most intense- .
fear pictured on ber fuce, shrieked that it
was un earthquake. Then cuino the third'
shock, aud they- all shrieked in fear and
mental agony: My wife cried that th waiv
was opeuiug. rjlie had seeu a crack in thu
plaster seperate tor over an men. ! or -.Uuui
a second or two I was completely unnerved
aud helpless, but I then partially regained
my composure, and, putting my arms round
the women, I shouted that there tins no
danger at all let the earthquake be as bad
as it might, as we were iu a frame house.
My wile said that there was, as she thought
the earth was opening. I replied that it was
impossible, as I kuew we were upou good
ground and not upon one of the many
swamps of the city which have been covered
over. Whilelwus quieting and dirrecting
their atteution to heaveu and its preserving
care, each second s shock became stronger
than its predecessor, and with each the
shrieks of the women and children worse..
These, and the fear of the dreadful phenome
non which was upon us, actually made my
flesh creep. It was snch a look in my wife
race that first unnerved mo. finally, tu
much less time thnn it has takeu to tell this,
the last and strangest undulation occured.
When the shocks ceased, -all of the company
but myself were so weuk that they could not
ataud, and indeed I was . weak enough my
self, though it was neccessary for me to show
a calmness which 1 did not feel. o louuu
