W. F. DURISOE, Preprietor. EDGEFIELD, S." A-PRIL 3,1851.
WRITTEN FOX TUE ADVERTISER.
OF morning or of evening dews
Sings not my soul-enraptured Muse,
But what the sly Highlander stills,
Upon.his wild romantic hills.
One drop of this delicious " dew,"
With such a friend, dear Judge, as you,
Makes all the kind affections flow,
And e'en the coldest heart to glow.
Soon as we taste the "Mountain dew,"
The past is of a brighter hue ;
Like heat applied to secret ink,
It brightens memory's dullest link.
And, if a little more we take,
Our thoughts still brighter will it make;
And scenes long faded and forgot,
4 Become once more a shining spot.
Then, like old soldiers fight we o'er,
Our battles, fought in days of yore
(Our battles in the field of Venus,
No others ever came between us.)
The "dew" that sparkles now so bright,
Makes all the cares of life look light,
Makes life itself, tho' dry and sear,
Still fresh and green as youth appear.
Like oil once poured on Aaron's head,
The " dew" is o'er our feelings shed;
The kindly influence we feel,
Upon our inner senses steal.
Not Helicon's long-boasted Spring,
Whence issues all our power to sing,
With such inspiring nectar flows,
As that which in this goblet glows.
TIE MOCK ARRZAGE.
A PHYsICIAN's SKETCHES.
How truly pitiable it is when talent
and genius are arrayed against the sim
plicity of innocence-when those rare
qualities-given to their much favored
possessors for noble purposes, are divert
ed from their proper channels, and made
topander to vice and iniquity.
I. as sitting one morningin my study,
culling from my notes some of the most
interesting records of my diary, when my
servant came to tell me that a young lady
wished to'see me.
"She seems hir, very ill,".he said, and

"Yes-yes& Eren now 'tis ',urning
thro' my velas like Ifquid fire. Oh! save
me, doctor-save me! I thought to end
all my miseries, and to rush to the obliv
ion of the grave; but now, now-oh,
God! my guilty soul shrinks in horror
from death. Give me life-life-life."
"For Heaven's sake," said I, " waste
no words in oxplanation now, but tell me
what you have taken?".
"Arsenic-arsenie," she gasped.
I immediately rang the bell, and when
my servant appeared. I said
" Bring me eggs, and soap, andl water
Accustomed to obey me promptly, the
man instantly left the room, when there
came such a thundering knocec at my
street door, that I thought it must have
"Never mind the door," cried, " bring
me what I have ordered you."
"Yes, sir," said my man, and away he
ran; at the instant that another appeal,
more loud than the former oneo, wvas made
upon my knocker."
" Save me, save me !" the young lady
kept crying, "I dare not die nowv. Oh, I
cannot die !"
" Everything shall be done for you,"
said I, "that the skill of man can suggest.
Wait one moment."
In no very patient mood I ran to the
street door to open it myself, and scold
the, person who knocked so furiously, and
ansl just succeeding in opening it as anoth
er knock was about being admnitstered.
" How dare you 1" cried I; and then I
paused, for the deathlike paleness of the
young man wvho staggered into my pas
sage stopped me from saying more.
"Good God!"cried I, " what's the mat
"She-is here I" he gasped.
"A young person; I saw her go in.
She has taken poison."
"George !" shrieked the young lady, as
she rushed frdm my parlor, and fell into
arms of the young man.
" Ellen-Ellen!l'? he eried, frantically,
"is it true that you still live I"
"I-am dyinlg-dyin~g!" she gasped.
" Tell-tell my father and'inther--".
She would have falfen on the floor it'1
had not caught her in my arms. I car
ried her at once into the parlor, and there
was my semant with .the remedies I bad'
directed him to procure; but they were
of no avail in her present state, and with
utmost exertions it was full ten minutes
before I could restore her to conscious
" As you value your life," said I, hand
ing to her the antidote I had now thor
oughly prepared, " take this draught
"I burn-I burn !" she cried; "oh,
heavens, I burn! George, forgive me!
say you forgive me."
" Ellen-Ellen, you will kill me," he
" Drink-drink," said I.
She gave a convulsive shudder, and fell
back upon the sofa. I saw that there was
no hope-she was dying. My looks, I
suppose, told the melancholy truth, for
the young man she called George burst
into tears, crying.
"Save her-save her, sir-oh, surely
something can be done ?"
" While poison is in the stomach we
can do much," said I; "but this ease has
gone too far."~
With a deep groan she now drew pu
her limbs as if in great agony, then a
damp cold dew came upon her brow; she
gasped convulsively for breath, and then
all was over.
There was an awful silence of a mo
ment or two. The young man seemed
stupified by the suddenness of the event.
He glanced wildly around him like a ma
niac ; then clutching his hands above his
head, he shouted in a tone that made me
shrink from him,
"Vengeance ! vengeance! I will have
his life !"
" My good sir," said I, trying to stop
him, "allow me, if you please. I --"
"A thousand arms should not stay
me," he cried; " I will have his life. I
will-by heaven-I will have his life !"
"But, sir, before you go, permit me to
ask who you are, and who this young
person is I"
" Ellen, Ellen, I will revenge you," he
shrieked, not at all heeding my quesin.
" I will crush him to the earth, were le
ten times what he is. Oh, Heavens! have
we thus metI Is this the end of the
bright dreaM- that li't my youthful fancy I
Save me from madness!"
..Compose yourself, -sir, and tell me
wheyou are. What am I to do'with the
body of this youhg lady 1"
He rushed to the corpse, And seizing
one of the cold lifeless hands, he called
upon, her frantically to speak to him. He
conjured her by every tender epithet to
saybiit one word-to tell him she lived,
and would live for him. He kissed the
pale lips, and then, with a cry of'despair,
he rushed past me, and was out of the
house before I could interpose to prevent
him from going.
My position was anything but an agree
able one. Here was a poisoned young
lady lying upon miy sofa, and without the
least means of ascertaining who she was.
I rang the bell hastily, and when my ser.
vant came, I said,
"l Thomas, run down the street, and see
if you can catch the young man who was
here. If you do, detain him anyhow, till
I get my hat and follow you."
Thomas ran out, and in a few moments
I ran after him, but the young man was
gone, and we were compelled to come
back as wise as we went.
" Upon my word," said I, " this is an
awkward a predicament as any man
could wvell be placed in."
There lay the body--a hideous specta
cle-upon my sofa, and the hour was
close at hand when my usual patients
" Thomas," said I, "you must assist
nme to carry this body somewvhere else."
"The-the body, sir ?" said Thomas.
While Thomas said "Oh, yes," he
backed torards the door with at evident
repugnance to the job.
"Come, come," saud I, "you must not
have any of these foolish scruples; I can
not carry it by myself. It must be re
moved somewhere till I can see the parish
authorities, and have it take-n from the
house, so do you take the feet; betwe~en
us we must carry it into the back parlor."
" I-I-never took hold of the feet of
a corpses in all my life," stammered out
"But you must now; so come, be
Thomas with great reluctance assisted
me to lift the corpre from my sofa, and we
got comfortably enough into the passage
with it, when a knock at the street door
so startled Thomas, that he immediately
dropped his end of the burthen, exclaim
ing, " Oh, lord sir, what's that I"
"' Why a knock at the door, to be sure,"
said I; " what a foolish fellow you are."
By dragging the body along, I now got
it myself into the back parlor, just as
Thomas opened the door. I heard a
voice ask for me, and the visitor was
shown into the parlor so recently occu
pied by the ghastly object I had removed.
In a moment my servant brought me a
card,. on which was written Lord Mandel
holme, and informed me that it wvas given
him by the gentleman in the parlor.
I went at once, expecting his lordship
hadt cmetomo for nrofessionali advice;
but when I entered the room, I was
struck by the peculiar paleness of his
face, and the agitation that seemed to
pervade every limb of him.
" Doctor," he said, "although unknown
to you, I have heard your name very fre

They went to settle at Boulogne perma. I
nently, since which, my professional en
gagements have prevented me from seeing i

He sank into a chair with a deep groan.
" What is the matter, sir," said I; " are e

He looked up at me with an expression E
of face I shall never forget, and, in a hol- I
low tone, he said,- t

tale of a gentleman, now very podr, wvho h
was deprived of a .largo estate once in b
conseqiience o'f being i too nich of a
hurry. A dying man had quarreled with,
his heirs, and was dtetermined ihey should ~
not have his money: He had made a P
will, giving all his money to this individu- c
al, which only wanted his signature. His 1
sands w~ere running low, and calling his g
friend, bade him take the will from the p
drawer and bring him the inkstand.- 'rears ti
blinded the unfortunate donee's eyes, as e
he exacted the command. He seized a h
small bottle from the mantle piece1 andl e
dipping, the pen,- the testator wrote his i
name, lay back and died. The will was
put back in the chest, and the old man
was buried, but when they came to look
for the will they found it had no signa- g
ture. Alas! the truth was plain-in his tI
haste for the ink, be had got the wrong d
bottle, and the will was signed with
paregoric. So the heirs got it after all.
