THE WINE CUP.
NJ MARY L. GARDNER.
Stay-stay thy hand, lift not the cup
Of rosery glittering wine:
Though clear its depths, there lurks beneath
A curse for thee and thine.
Ye say it gives a merry heart,
And drives away dull care;
It brings, what else thou wouldst not know.
Unmixed and dark despair.
Ye say it has a power to drown
- Thoughts of life's sternest il,
To bring forgetfulness of woes
And conscience voice to still;
Believe it not-oh ! never seek
Oblivion in the bowl
A draught will only deeper fix
The agony of soul.
Ye say it stirs the slugglish blood,
AnJbids it quicker flow#
,Ye say 'tis plkasant on the lip,
. brie itszow. -
Lead pted, trusting one,
To misery aid shame ?
Then 'taste not, touch not.'-dare yo thus
Your glorious birth-right stain ?
Would ye-descendants of the free.
Clank the inebriates chain ?
No! by the nemory of the brave
Who sleep beneath the sod
Shake off the curse, and give your pledgo
To virtue and to God.
Drive on, thou sturdy farmer,
Drive cherily o'er the field;
The pleasures of a farmer's life
No other life can yield.
Thou risest with the morning sun,
To till the fruitful earth;
And when thy daily task is done,
Thou secek'st thy peaceful hearth.
Thou lovest not the gaudy town,
With its tumultuous roar;
Plenty and peace thy fireside crown,
And thou dost ask no more.
Monarchs with robes in crimson dyed,
Arc low, compared with thee;
They are the pampered sons of pride,
Thou art God's nobility.
Go on, thou sturdy farmer,
Tread proudly on the sod,
Thy proud and goodly heritage,
Thou chosen man of God.
The Three Brides.
"Do you see," said the sexton, "those
three hilloeks yonder, side by side ? There
sleeps three brides whose history I am about
to relate. Look there, sir, on yonder hill
you may observe a little desolate house,
with a little straggling fence in front, and a
few stunted apple trees on the ascent be
hitnd it. It is sadly out of repair now, and
the garden is now overgrown with weeds
and brambles, and the whole place has a
desolate appearanCe. If the winds were
high now you might hear their crazy shut
ters flapping against the sides, and the wind
tearitng the gray shingles off the roof. Many
years ago there lived in that house an old
man, who cultivated the few acres of ground
that belonged to it.
" The father wats a self taught man, deep
ly versed in the. mysteries of science, and as
he could tell the name of every flower that
blossomed in the wood or grewv in the garden
and used to sit up late at night at his books,
or reading the mystic story of the starry
heavens, men thought he was crazed or be
witched, and avoided him as the ignorant
ever shun the gifted and the enlightened.
A few there were, and among ,others, the
minister, the lawyer, and the physician of the
place, wtho showed a willingness to ifford
him countenance, but they soon dropped his
acquaintance, for they found the old man
somewhat reserved and morose, and more
over their vanity wans wounded on discover
ing the extent of his knowledge.
" To the minister he would quote _the
fathers and the scriptures in the original
tongue, and showed himself well armed with
the weapons of polennie controversy. He
.atnished the lawyer with his profound atc
quaintance with jurisprudence; and the physi
cian was surprised at the extent of his medi
cil knowledge. So all of them deserted
him, and the minister, from whom lie differ
ed in some trifling point of doctrine, spoke
very lightly of him; and looked on the self.
educated farmer with eyes of aversion.
" He instructed his son in all his lore; the
languages, literature, history, philosophy and
science, were unfolded one by one to the en
thusiastic son of the solitary.
Years rollet. away and the old man died.
He died when a storm convulsed the face of
nature; when the wind howled around the
sheltered dwelling, and the lightning played
above the roof, and though he went to
heaven in faith and purity, the vulgar thought
and said that the Evil One had claimed his
own in the elements. I cannot paint to you
the grief of the son at this bereavement.
He was for a moment once distracted. The
minister came and muttered a few hollow
phrases in his 'ear, and a few neighbors, im
pelled by curiosity to see the interior of his
dwelling, came to the funeral. With a
proud aud lofty look, the son stood above
the dust and the dead, in the midst of the
band of hypocritical mourners, with a pang
at his heart but serenity upon his brow.
He thanked his friends for their kindness,
acknowledged their curiosity, and then
strode away from the grave to bury his grief
in the privacy of the described dwelling.
" He found at last the solitude of the
mansion almost insupportable, and he paced
the ebony floor from morning till night, in
all the agony of woe and desolation, vainly
importuning heaven for relief. It came to
him in the guise of poetic inspiration. He
wrote with wonderful ease and power.
Page after page came from his prolific pen,
almost without an effort; and there wasa
time when he dreamed (vain fool) of immor
tality. Some of his produclions came be
fore the world. They-were praised and cir
culated, and inquiries set on foot in the
hope of discovering the author. He, wrap
ped in the veil of impenetrable obscurity,
listened to the voice of applause, more deli
cious because it was obtained by stealth.
From the obscurity of yonder lone mansion,
and from this region to send lays which as
tonished the world, was indeed a triumph
to the visionary bard.
" His thirst for fame had been gratified,
and he now began to yearn for the compan
ionship of some sweet being of the softer
sex, to share with him the laurels he had
won, and to whisper consolation in his ear
in the moments of despondency, and to sup
ply the void which the death of a father had
occasiond.3 He, .ul to himsef
is he had chosen for his motto, " whatever
ias been done may be done," lie did not des
air of success.
"In this village lived three sisters, all
beauifni and accomplished. Their names
vere Mary, Adelaide and Madeline. I am
ar enough past the age of enthusiasm, but
ever can I forget the beauty of those
oung girls. Mary was the youngest, and a
hirer haired, more laughing damsel never
lanced upon the green. Adelaide, who was
i few years older, was dark haired and pen
ive; but of the three, Madeline, the eldest,
possessed the most fire, spirit, cultivation
md intelleenality. Their father, a man of
taste and education, and being somewhat
uhove the vulgar prejudices, permitted the
visits of the hero of my story. Still he did
not encourage the affection he found spring
ing up betwveen Mary and the poet. Vhien,
however, he found that her afflections were
engaged, lie did not wit.hhold his consent
from their marriage, and the recluse bore to
his mansion the young bride of his affee
ions. Oh, sir,the house assumed a new ap
pearance within and without.
" Roses bloomed in the gardenjessamines
peeped through the lattices, and the fields
about it smiled with the effects of careful
cultivation. Lights were seen in the little
parlor in the evening; and many a time
ould the passenger pause by the garden
gate to listen to strains of the sweetest mu
sie breathed by eboral voices from the cot
tage. If the -"mysterious student and his
wife had been neglected by the neighbors,
what cared they ? Their enduring mutual
affection made their home a little paradise.
But death caime to Eden. Mary suddenly
fell sick, and after a few hours' illness, died
in the arims of her husband and her sister
Madeline. This was the student's second
"Daiys, months rolled on, and the solace
of the bereaved wvas to sit wvith the sisters
of the deceased and talk of the lost one.
To Adelaide lie offered his widowed heart.
The bridal wvas not one of revelry and mirth.
Yet they lived happily, and the rose again
blossomed in the garden. But it seemed as
if fatality pursued this singular man. When
the rose withered and the leaf fell, in the
mellow autumn of the year, Adelaide too
sikened aiid died like her sister in the arms
of her husband and Madeline.
"Perhaps you will think it strange young
man, that after all, the wretched survivor
stood again at the alter. Madeline ! I well
remember her. She was a beauty in the
true sense of the word-she might have set
upon a throne, and the miost loyal subject,
the proudest peer, would have sworn the
blood in her veins diseended from a hundred
kings. She loved the widowed for his pow
er, and his fame, and she wedded him.
"They were married in that church-it
was on a summer~ afternoon-I recollect it
well. During the ceremony the blackest
cloud I ever saw overspread the heavens,
and the moment, this bridepronounced her
vow a clap of thunder shook the building to
its centre. All the females shrieked, but
the bride herself made the response, with a
steady voice, and her eye glistened with a
wild fire as she gazed upon her bridegroom.
When arrived at this house, she sunk upon
the threshold; but this was the timidity of
"When they were a lone he clasped her
hand and it was cold as ice. He looked -into
her face, " Maiden," said lhe, what means this?
Your cheek is as pale as your wedding
'town." The bride uttered a frantic shriek.
SMy wedding gown !" exclaimed she, no,
no-this is my sister's shroud! The hour
of ,.nfessin has arrived. It is God that
impels me to speak. To win you I lost my
own soul. Yes, yes-[ am a murderess!
She smiled on me in the joyous affection of
her young heart-but Lgave her the fatal
drug. Adelaide twined her whole arms
around my neck, but I administered the poi
son. Take me to your arms, I have lost my
soul for you, aid mine you must be!'
" And thei," continued he, in a hollow
voice, "at that moment came the thunder,
and the guilty woman fell dead on the
floor !" The countenance of the narrator
expressed all he felt. .
4And the - bridegroom!" asked I, " the
husband of the destroyer and the victims
what became of him ?"
"He stands before you!" was the thrilling
lossuth's Address to the People
of the United States.
BALTIMORE, Oct. 28.
The Union of this morning publishes Kos

I extract the following paragraph from the
close of the addresn:
"Free citizens of America! You inspired

"Aecept, in the name of my countrymen,

Hungary so well, firmly believe she is not

LIFE IN TIE WEST.-A Western corres
pondent relates the following anusing ini.
lent which lately occurred near the Hot
Springs of Arkansas:
"lIy friend had been staying several days
at the Springs confined to narrow quarters
by the incessant rains. It ia y naturally be
supposed that he gladly took advantage of the
first intermission of the elemental strife, to
walk out and see something of the country.
Having walked about a mile from the tavern
where he lodged. lie saw a small house, so
thickly surrounded by trees as not to be dis.
tinctly observable from the road. Advanc
ing from the opposite direction, he perceived
a rough looking six footer, clad in a buck
skin hunting shirt, with a large Blois'd Are
stick in his hand. Evidently not knowving
his proximity to a house, or any humnan be
ing, this individual suddenly drew himself up
to his full height and witht the whole force of
his lungs, produced a sound which my friend
declares to have been the best imitation of
the braying of a Jack that he ever heard.
Apparently pleased with his performance, lhe
was in the act of drawing himself up for
another effort, when a stout fellow rushed
out of the hotuse with his rifle in his hand,
and in no very measured or polished terms
objurgated him for making such a horrible
noise, which he said had almost frightened
his little daughter into fits. The other
apologized, on the ground that he was not
aw~are of his being so near a house. "-It
makes no difference," said the owner of the
soil, "you shan't make such a noise here, and
if you do it again i'll break every bone in
your body." "Look here, stranger," was
the reply, "if you come to talk of whipping,
that's a game that two enn play at,
I reckon y'ou ha'n't got much of the ad
vantage of me there. I've been wanting to
bray all day, and came clear out here where
I thought I should'nt interfere with nobody.
A pretty free country, to be sure, that a man
can't bray where lie pleases."
RESEMBLAcEs.-Some philosopher has
remarked, that every animal, when dressed
in human apparel, resembles matnkind very
strikingly in features. Put a frock, bonnet
and spectales on a pig, and it looks like and
old woman of eighty. A bull dressed in an
evercoat would resemble a lawvyer. Tle a
fewv ribbons round a cat, put a fan in its paw,
and a boarding school miss is represented.
A cockerel in uniform is a general to the life.
A hedgehog looks like a miser. Dress a mon
key in a frock coat, cut off his tail, trim his
whiskers, and you have a city dandy. Don
keys resemble a good many persons.
THE MhAN who said that the moon was
made to encourage courting, was not far
from the truth. There is a voluptuous all
overishness that creeps over one whilebasking
beneath the influence of silver-plated night,
that leads us as naturally to love, as lawv
does to trouble.
A Smwir.-Of all the melancholy sights,
a bachelor's home is the most so. A house
without a woman is like a world without a
star, dark, desolata and drer.

BAnnEnus LooK OUT!-Mr.Andrew Jack
son Davis comes out in the Hartford Times
in favor of mien's wearing their beards. He
says the hairs of the beard are ultimnations
or continuations of nerves; those of the
hard coating and membrance of the eye are
connected with the beard the upper lip,
and when that is shaved of the nerves are
exposed to injury ; some diseases of the eye
le attributes to shaving. In women, these
nerves instead of terminating in the upper
lip arc buried in the cheeks, and have much
to do in controlling the phenomenon of
blushing. Bronchitis and maladies of the
lungs are produced by shaving off the beard
on the chin. M~r. Davis also argues that
mustachios are no obstacle in the way of
eating, or any other function in which the
lips are employed. What Mr. Andrew Jack
son Davis says, we presume, must be true;
but if he wishes to consign to their graves
the occupations of barber and hair-dresser,
he must take some other course. Men will
be shaved, and women will.-Boston Herald.
NEW SYSTEM OF SWrimmx.--We see it
stated that an ingenious Frenchman, M.
Danduran, has invented what he calls a newv
system of swimming, or walking in the
water, however deep. The first experiment
was recently made on the Seine, in the pre
sence of a vast concourse of people, includ
ing a number of scientific gentlemen. What
the invention consists of, is not stated ; but
six persons, provided with the apparatus,
jumped into the water from. several boats,
and having sunk up to the neck, remained
there at rest, with the most calm self-posses
sion. In this posture, a bottle of wine and
a tumbleg was passed to the nearest, wvho
drank a gass and thea handed it on. The
six then lighted cigars, and .took a walk
across the river, with as much ease as if they
had been on terra firma. It is said that pro
pellers of some sort are fixed to both hands
and feet, which allow a man provided with
them to succor a drowning man without the
slightest risk to himself.

Rev. E. T. Buist. preached the sermon on

PRANCE.-Mr. Walsh, long a resident -of
ParIrin ilditer to-the Journal of Commerce,
written on the 26th September says:
"That great events are just before is cer

dated Teneriffe, Sept. 4, giving an account
of the terrible ravages of a plague, -esem
bling the cholera, which has swept over
Palmas, one of the Cape de Verds. 'One

I SEE A LIGHT-l'3i ALMOST HoE.-The
following is related of a young girl, whose
journey of life was near its end: t
About her chamber glided the loved forms
of her parents and only sister. She silently S
noted their movements with a mild expres- h
sion of her dying eye, turning it from side to
side. Arrested by her peculiar look, so ex
pressive of affliction and patient suffering, s
they paused to look upon her, whom they
only saw now but dimly through their tears,
and so soon should see no more. r
A feeble effort to speak, a quivering, voice- I
less movement of the lips, drew closely p
around her the loving hearts of that sorrow- r;
ing circle. Miother, father, sister, all came V
loser to her side. A playful smile lit up her e
countenance. She laid her little pulseless e
hand within her mother's palm, the closed b
her eyelids to the light of earth, and sank hi
away. The cold, damp air of death's shad- in
oway valley seemed circling over her. Slow- hi
ly sinking down, she glided towards that ri
ver's shore, which, like a narrow stream, di- ii
vides the spirit..land from ours. But see! ti
the quivering lips essay to speak! "Mo. u
ter!"' Oh! how each heart trobbed now, t]
and then each pulse stood still. They listen. ti
"Mother !" the dying girl breaths forth-"~I 'I

ecollect it,. in:..this wise: At tle battle of

3utler, and says-"Colonel, who of your
egiment will follow. me in assaulting yon
ttery and arresting its deadly fire?" The
,olonel stepped out and answered-"Gen
ral, South Carolina is ready; we came
rom home for this very purpose; we will do
mur duty though we perish in its execution!"
Xod ! is not this bravery ? And the noble
ouled Carolinians did do their duty to the
ery death-for when the battle was ended,
south Carolina could not count more than a
hird of the number that she had sent into
hat terrible confieL Yet, for all this dis
lay of bravery, there are editors in North
,trolina-here in W7ilington-who raise
he pitiful finger of scorn at the- position
ihich your State now holds in the Union.
Ir. McRae, in speaking on this subject, said
i substance: "There are editors of news

he people, " when they have not sense
nough to lead the minds of one-them

arolina-" deride her-scorn her-scoff at

ou will; but her, fame will be preserved
rhen the reptiles that crawl over her soil
ball cease to waste their slime."

many wounded. At the -recent outrage at
Syracuse, where the Marshal, in the dis
charge of his duty had his arm broken-and
say whether the prospect is not dark indeed,
and whether there is any hope of it ever

bear on, when she sees the very law on
which she anchored her hopes daily infracted,
and her citizens killed when they attempt to
recover their property. Is there no point in
which-she will resist.-N. C. Hornet's Nest.
DIVIDING CALIFORNIA.-The lato news
from California informs us that-a most im
portant step has been taken by the inhabi
tants of the Southern country, desirous of
dividing the State and forming a territorial
government for that portion. Two addresses
have been issued to secure concert of action,
and a convention of-delegates has been
called to assemble in Santa Bnriara on the
third Monday in October. Delegates have
already been appointed to attend from Santa
Clara, San Diego, and other counties. All
the members of the Legislature recently
elected from that setio: of the State are
pledged to urge a division at the ensuing
session.-South Carolinian. -
DIRECT TRADE.-Speaking -of move
ments now on foot in the South, the' New
York Times says: The regulation of prices
is a chimera; but the project of a direct in
tercourse between the South and Europe,
which is a principal object of the Macon
gathering, is not at all chimerical. The
trade of the Southern States' is large, and.
susceptible of any amount of extension.
The progress of manufactures in their midst
naturally suggests a corresponding develop.
ment of commerce. The commodities are
ample, the shipping procurable, and thei
economy of saving the cost of coastwise
transportation to a Norther'n port obvious.
The only wonder is the movement was not
made long ago.
