Commend me to the friend, who comes,
When I am sad and lone,
And makes the anguish of my heart
The sufierinjs of his own.
Who coldly shuns the "littering throng
At pleasure's-gay levee,
But comes to gild a sombre hour, ,
And give his heart to inc.
He hears me count my sorrows o'er,
And when the task is done,
lie freely gives me all I ask,
A sigh for every one.
He cannot wear a smiling brow,
When mincis touched with gloom,
But like the violet, seeks to cheer
,-. The midnight with perfume.
7 Commend me to that generous heart,
: Which, like the pine on high,
. Uplifts the same unvarying brow
To every change of sky ; " t
Wiiose friendship docs not fade away,
When wintery tempests blow,
But like the winter's ivy crown,
Looks greater through the snow.
We flies not with the flittering flock,
That seek the sourlhern sky,
.But lingers where the wounded bird
Hath laid him down to die.
.Oh, such a friend ! he is, in truth,
Whate'cr his lot may be,
A rainbow on the storm of life,
An anchor on its sea.
A Good Oae.

'When I heard what she said I had a
terrible foreboding of the future. Was
it for this I had sought her? Was it to

Aa Election Story.
Ycar3 ago, in a certain county in Penn
sylvania, the northern part of which was
peopled by the descendants of Germans,
poliities were running high, though mere
ly on local questions. The opposing can
didates of the Whig and tho Democrat
parties were both lawyers. One a Dem
ocrat nicknamed Dignity Brown, and the
other a Whig, known to his brother law
years and thc public as Volunteer Davis,
and sometimes as ' With-all-duc-dcference
Election was drawingticar a meeting
was appointed by the Democratic wire
pullers, to be held in the upper portion of
thc county, for the purpose of making
sure of the 'Gorman interest.' Our friead,
Dignity Brown, had never bcon in this
region of his county to be known, nor had
the inhabitants been at court often enough
to distinguish one lawyer from another.
As witnesses they hated them all alike,
and as jurymen they admired all alike
He had never been among the.se people,
we say, but as thc contest was approach
ing, and the chances for Dignity's staying
at home or going to Washington being
evenly balanced, it seemed necessary that
the Germans should be aroused to a scuse
of their duty and danger. Accordingly
the call for the meeting had been pub
lished. Now on thc meeting day or rather
evening it happened, altogether acci
dentally, that our Whig candidate, Vol
unteer Davis, was returning from a con

blacksmith was half an hour making tho
pin, and that he should burn his fingers
so seriously in the job, that the appren
tice should finish it accidental that all
resulted in a detention of Brown for two
hours from the road.
In the meantime affairs wero approach
ing a crisis at Grundlo Town. ,:
Davis is beginning his peroration his
German friend3 are all car. 'Eellow
citizens, with all due deference to the o
pinion3 which men entertain concerning
I their own language, I frankly tell you
mat x can see ncitner wic nor sense-in
German.' Looks of astonishment from
his auditors. 'So much am I convinced
of this that I introduced a resolution last
winter against pitting out laws in Ger
man.' Much feeling evinced, and hero
and there a low murmur of dissatisfac
tion. 'But I intend this winter to bring
-forward a more strenuous rusulation. I
shall abolish German schools.' Cries of
'Trow him mit eggs?

pleasant and re-assuring remarks camo
thick and fast. 'If a man can't speak
Engliah, I intend he shall have no vote!'
Donder and blitzen, donner mid dorio,
and the gentlest of the last arguments of
an incensed crowd, an egg spread its
golden hues over his breast like a gorge
ous sunflower growing out of his vest
pocket. It was time to be gone. 'And
with all due deference,' shouted he as he
made aretrogade movement, 'if any man,
after the year 1S36, teach his child Ger
man, I shall have him imprisoned I' Ho
had to run for his life. Imprecations,
stones, and clubs, were behind him thick
as hail, and the cloud whence they had
come was following.
The landlord, who having been busy in
his bar, had heard none of the obnoxious
sentiments of his favorite candidate, was
thunderstruck to see him flying through
the house, followed by the yelling crowd,
and not knowing how to gain a knowledgo
sooner spread himself between the pur
suers and the pursued, crying 'Lilber

A pursuit was attcmptedbut the erowd

had been struck at his fortune, but find
