I know thou wilt forget me,
For that proud soul of thine
Turns coldly from the passionate
And ardent love of mine.
It may be that thou deemestit
A light and simple thing
To strike with bold and nervous arm
The heart's lone, mystic siring.
Thou wilt not deign to hear the strain
. Thy own dear hand hath woke,
It matters not, if ne'er to thee
Its trembling echoes broke.
I know, ay well, thou wilt forget
I ever dreamed of thee,
Thou lovest not, thou carestnot
My fettered soul to free.
The gay and gifted crowd thee round,
The beautiful are thine,
Then how canst thou, oh lofty one,
Kneel at a lowly shrine!
I ask it not; oh never more
My soul's cry shalt thou hear
My heart shall learn in betterness
To hide its love so dear.

The Blest Ones at Home
Away on the banks of life's bright river,
Far, far away
There will my heart be turning even
There's where the blest ones stay;
All through this vale of sin and sorrow
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for the dawn of the morrow
And for the blest ones at home.
All without is dark and dreary,
Every where I roam,
O, brothers, how the heart grows weary,
Sirhin:r for the blest ones at home.
Through all earth's sunny scenes I wandered
In youth's gay morn;
How man)T precious hours I've squandered,
How many mercies scorned,
When seeking sin's delusive pleasures,
Wretched was I,
But now my heart has found a treasure
There with the blest ones on high.
All without is dark, &c.
One hour there is forever bringing
Memories of love;
JTwaa when my sighs we're changed to singing
Of the blest home above;
When shall I see my Saviour reigning
On his white throne!
When will be hushed my heart's complaining,
There with the blest ones at home!
All till then is dark and dreary
Every where I roam, j

The Ventriloquist's Coats.
Some years ago there was a )Toung man
living in Savannah, by the name of Nich
ols. He was a clerk in a large store.
It happened that a travelling ventriloquist
visited Savanah, and so interested Nich
ols, thathe engaged withhim to go around
the country together.
In the course of time the young man
eclipsed his master. He displayed most
astonishing powers, and caused great ex
citement wherever he appeared.
It was after he became famous and
wealthy, that he visited a tailor's shop in
Savannah, to order a new coat. The
knight of thd shears was happy to receive
the order from so distinguished a custom
er, and assured the ventriloquist that the
garment should be an exact Ct.

The Force of Fear.
At the close of the winter of 1625-26,
about dusk in the afternoon, just as the
wealthy dealers in the Balais-Koyal at
Paris were about lighting their lamps
j and putting up their shutters, (the prac
tice of the major part ot them at night
fall, a well known money changer sat be
hind his counter alone, surrounded by
massive heaps of silver and gold, the glit
tering and sterling currency of all the
the kingdoms of Europe. Jle' had well
nigh closed his operations for the day, and
was enjoying in anticipation the prospects
of a good dinner. 13etween the easy-chair
upon which he reclined in perfect satis
faction, and the door which opened into
the north side of the immense quadran
gle of which the splendid edifice above
mentioned is composed, arose a stout wire
partition, reaching nearly to the ceiling,
and resting upon the counter, which trav
ersed the whole length of the room. Thus
he was cjfectually cut off from all possi-
I bility of unfriendly contact from any of
j his occassional visitors ; while a small sli-
ding-board that ran in and out under the
wire partition served as the medium of
his peculiar commerce. Upon this he re-
I ceived every coin, note or draft presented
j for change, and having first carefully
examined it, returned its value, by the
same conveyance, in tne coin or 1 ranee,
or, indeed, of any other country requred.
Behind him was a door communicating
with his domestic chambers, and in the
middle of the counter was another, the
upper part of which formed a portion of
the wire partition above described.
The denizen of this little chamber had
already closed his outer shutters, and was
just on the point of looking up his doors
and retiring to his repast, when two young
men entered. They were evidently Ital
ians, from their costume and peculiar di
alect. Had it been earlier in the day when
there would have been sufficient light to
have discerned their features and expres
sion, it is probable that our merchant would
have defeated their plans, for he was well
skilled in detecting the tokens of fraud or
design in the human countenance. But
they had chosen their time too appropri
ately. One of them, advancing towards
the counter, demanded chance in French
coin for an English sovereign, which he
laid upon the sliding board, and passed
through the wire partition. The money
changer rose immediately, and having as
certained that the coin was genuine, re
turned its proper equivalent by the cus
tomary mode of transfer.- The Italians
turned as if to leave the apartmentj when
he who had received the money suddenly
dropped the silver as though accidental
ly upon the floor. As it was now nearly
dark, it was scarcely to be expected that
they could find the whole of the pieces
without the assistance of a light.
This the unconscious merchant has
tened to supply; and unlocking, with
out suspicion, the door of the partition
between them, stooped with a candle 0
ver the floor in search of the lost coin.
In this position the unfortunate man was
immediately assailed with repeated stabs
from a poniard, and he at length fell, af
ter a few feeble and ineffectual struggles,
senseless and apparently lifeless, at the
feet of his assassins.
A considerable time elapsed ere, by
the fortuitous entrance of a stranger, he
was discovered in this dreadful situation;
when it was found that the assassins,hav
ing first helped themselves to an almost
incredible amount of money, had fled,
without anything being left by which a
clue might have been obtained to their
The unfortunate victvm of their raprt
city and cruelty was however, not dead.
Strange Us it may appear, although he
had received upwards of twenty wounds,
several of which plainly showed that the
dagger had been driven to the very hilt,
he survived; and in a few mdnths after
the event, was again to be seen in his
long-accustomed place at the changer's
board. In vain had the most diligent
search been made by the military police
of Paris for the perpetrators of this de
testable deed. The villi ans had eluded
all inquiry and investigation, and would
in all probability have escaped undiscov
ered with their booty but for a mutually
cherished distrust of each other. Upon
the first and complete success of their
plan, the question arosti how to dispose
of their enormous plunder, amounting to
more than a hundred thousand pounds.
Fearful of the researches of the police, '
they dared not retain it at their lodgings. !
To trust a third party with their secret '
was not to be thought of. At length, af
ter long and anxious deliberation, they
agreed to conceal the money outside the ,
barriers of Paris until they should, have i
concocted some safe plan for transporting '
it to their own country, This they ac- ;
cordiugly did, burying the treasure tin
der a tree about a mile from the Barriere
d'Enfer. But they were still as far as
ever from a mutual understanding, '
When they separated,. on any pretence, j
each returned to the spot which contained j
the stolen treasure, where, of course, he
was sure, to find tho other. Suspicion .
thus formed and fled soon grew into dis- j
like and hatred, until, at length, each j
loathing the sight of the other, they a-1
greed to divide tho booty, and then etem- 1
ally to separate, each to the pursuit of ,
his own gratification. It then became
necessary to carry the whole of the mo
ney home to their lodgings in Paris, in
order that it might, according to their no
tions, be exuitably divided.'

stabbed him ; and to the younger, as his
companion and coadjutor.
The criminals were in due course of
time bried, fully convicted, and as was to
be expected, sentenced to death by the
guillotine ; but. owing to some technical
informality in the proceedings, the doom
of the law could not be carried into exe-
cution until the sentence of the court had ;
been confirmed upon appeal. This de-'
lay afforded time and opportunity for
some meddling or interested individual
either moved by the desire of making a
cruel experiment, or else by the hope of
obtaining a reversalof the capital sentence
feelings of the unfortunate money-changer
o i
A few days after the sentence of death had
been pronounced, the unfortunate victim
received a letter fom an unknown hand,
mysteriously worded, and setting forth, in
expressions that seemed to him fearfully
prophetic, that the thread of his own des
tiny was indissolubly united with that of
his condemned assassins. It was evident
ly out of their power to take away his
life ; and it was equally out of his power
to survive them, die by the sentence of
the law, or how or when they might ; it
became clear, so argued this intermed
dler that the same moment which saw
the termination of their lives, would in
evitably be the last of his own. To for
tify his arguments, the letter-writer refer
red to certain mystic symbols in the hea
vens. Now, though the poor man could
understand nothing of the trumpery dia
grams which were set forth as illustrating
the truth of the fatal warning thus con
veyed to him, though his friends univer
sally laughed at the trick as a barefaced
attempt of some anonymous impostor to'
rob justice of her due, it nevertheless
made a deep impression upon his nTind.
Ignroaut of everything but what he rela
ted immediately to his own money-getting
profession, ho had a blind and unde
