"'TWAS A SAD FATE."
"Full many a stoio eve, and aspect stem,
Mnsk hearts, where grief Las little left to learn;
And many n withering thought lies hid,?not lost,
In .smiles that least befit, who wear them moat."
These words come vividly to the mind, when
oue sees, niul knows Horace Barker. The
lines ubout (lie mouth, dcuoto sorrow, the con
stant attitude of reflection, shows Pertubation;
and while his fine eye is occasionally, lit with
vivacity or omotion, the habitual expression of
his handsome fae.>, is abstraction or care. A
uiau of wealth, he lives at Louisville?that
miniature western world, where talent and af
fluence have the highest social value, and
where Mr. Barker could demand any public

Their home, has been several times gladden
ed by the voice of helpless infancy ; yet as
often have they mourned their early dead,
feeling the while, that a parent's tie was only
torturous, since, so often, death seemed en
vious of their parental blessings. One little
boy of four months had been left to their fos
tering care ; and iu the guileless joy of his
hazel eyes, the mother gleaned hope aud con
"But why call him Mariou, husband? You
have so many actual friends, who would like
to name the child. It is so effeminate ; 1 wish
you were less determined." IIo left tho room
but still the mother poudered. "Will I uever
win his confidence ??Are all mcu thus con
stantly abstracted, aud immersed iu business '(
flc is not mercenary, why should that d'uH re
serve thuj daily veil his thoughts aud interests
from his faithful wife? Yet, ask him, I null

moody sorrow seemed to hover over my oucc
fond husband; and now?each act of kindness,

me some,?and I ought, to be happy. Our
sweetost songs arc those that "tell of saddest
thoughts ;" Iu future days he'll live to learn,
proud hearts can love the strongest."
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men aud women merely players."
Six years ago, Horace Barker lived near
Princeton. JAgkilier's position and wealth
secured to lrH ?ic advantages qf education
and society. ^TO?*\vcul to Vale; and, after
several sessious of unwearied application, he
returned with every token of succcsslul schol
arship. It even murked bj?miniiCiH. for lie
was^AAgjuiic and demonsffljOTo in a social
cirfl Kl, "nolens totrn," soon found 'lilm
8ef^B alias, a martyr to the tender pas
Marino Ilolc?inbo was tho daughter of a
gifted man. IIo had been long on foreign
otubftssage, and his "little fairy"?as he term
od tho singing child,?was ever with its mo
ther. Yet just as the littlo creature ruuehed
her term, Mrs. II. diod suddenly of pneumo
nia; and she was loft with her grandmamma,
?to ictet)?and wait?and xcatch for papa,
lie did returu, gave up his appointment, and
cherished the dear little woman, sole reminder
of his beloved spouse.
Mouths fled, and as Muriun matured into
womanhood, the young lady with unaffected
frankness, and confiding manner, seemed fitted
only for the atmosphere of a living home, and
"Led by simplicity divine.
She plenum!, yet never tried to Bhine."
"Like the bright bark sprung'from the glit
Ail angel,?yet, a very woman too."
And Horace loved Marian forvontly. He
thought hor presence ho essential to his fu
ture happiness, that all probation, or labor
would find indomnity, when sho finally be
came his bride. Nor did Mr. II. disapprove.
The manly earnest tone of one, whom he had
known from boyhood, won from the fond fa
ther a promise, that, until Horace was able tu
support a wife, Marian might wait for him.
Louisville seemed the El Dorado, then ; and.
hoping to fiud there the open sesavw. to wanted
competence, ho left Priucetown.
"Parting is pain"?so says the song: and so
added bur' hero, while he lingered at twilight,
near the loviug girl, tu whom his earliest vows
were given,?for whom ho admitted unrivalled
uffectiuti. "The hope of return takes the
sting from adcu,"?so said Marian in her
quiet way, and "Horace, I will watch for
you." He, meanwhile, vehement by nature,
declared that only a cruel fate awarded him
the present disability : he raved at his own
assurance in venturing to wiu such a peerless
woman;?but he would couquer; he would
tramplo each obstacle, and come back to her
in two years, a richer and a readier suitor.
"So I'll dream on, ever fondly,
Happy dreams of hope and love;.
For I know we'll meet, my darling,
In this world, or thnt above."
The sccucs are changed. A yeav subse
quently. Mr. Holconibe, yet in the prime of
life, visits Raleigh ; and by letters of intro
duction, finds among bis acquaintances, an at
tractive nnd accomplished lady, the daughter
of a clergyman, whom ho decides, if possible,
to marry. Thereon he writes to Marian,?
tells his child of all the hopes he cherishes, all
the plans he forms ! He reminds her too, of
her need of a mother-friend^ whom she. would
ever find, in so admirable a woman. He asks
her affection for his iulci*dcd wife, assuring
her that the happiness of his child has had its
influence, in this second alliance. Her letter
in reply, indicated perfect compliance with his
wishes ; but there was a tone of reserve, so un
usual in his confiding daughter, that he wis
unable to solve the cause.
After his marriage, Mrs. IT. who was a
woman of considerable penetration, was told
of Marian's previous inclination* and manner.
?She confidently affirmed that her generous luve
and attention would soon overcome the jeal
ousy of the child; sho knew that love like
hers would conquer.
It was July, when the summer calms sug
gested, that a cooler spot was elsewhere 'neatli
the sky ; and Mr. II. aud his southern wiic
repaired to their future home at Princeton.
On their arrival, Marian met them with affec
tionate courtesy; and the new mother, with
singular tact and kindness, soon entered into
the anticipations aud interests of the daughter,
who told of her engagement, and spoke with
loving trust of her far oil" Horace. A few
months ago a letter had come, begging her to
be ready for their nuptials in the full; and
with woman's usual pride, the busy fingers
fashioned her a full and handsome wardrobe.
Naught is needed now, to satisfy the must
punctilious eye, save pretty goods of gossamer
hue. that some will see but once,?the bridal
robe. And muther Kllen fixed and fashioned
many a tasty notion, for her now-formed
Several moons have waxed and waned, since
Horace wrote, "I am having a pleasant time
here; but will come for you, if possible, in tin
fall. Be ready in September." "J'is strange
how wearily time goes by, when Hope grows
fuint with waiting. The guest-room, weeks ago.
was trimmed; the flowers are fixed and fresh
'cnod. The lovely robes and bright adorn
ments of an only child are all prepared, and
every garment marked indelibly.
"Let no one fondly dream again I
That hope with all her shadowy traiu
Will not decay ; I
Fleeting as were the dreams of old
It cm ember cd like a talc '.hat's told,
They paas, iiwr.y."
And niontlH, I sa?d, have passed sinco Ho
race Wrote; aud now th? voico of "busy gos
sips" speculate. Yes : one "thought it would
be'so," Another "feared he had never in
tended tu 9mc." Evil is dono by want of
thought, a:, well as want of feeling, of heart.
All,?and more,?reached Marian's oars, caus
ing her to suspect the truth. A paper from
Kentucky, came mysteriously to hand. It an
nounced the marriage of Horace Barker with
"If hopo but deferred causcth sickness of heart,
What sorrow lo soe it forever depart!"
Shall I carry you to Marian's chamber,
where the mute walls alone bore witness to her
frenzy t Love,? trust,? pride,?hope, ?all
writhing in tho anguish of the vanquished.
Shall I tell you of her still strong lovo,
Felt for but one, from whom it never ranged." i
Home hearts offered kindred sympathy.'
Th?y' too, shccrly from piqne, could weep,
because she grieved.
'?Behold! we live through all things,?famine,
Ueroavmcnt, pain; all grief and misery;
All woe and sorrow; lifo inflicts-its worsi
On aoul and body:?but we cannot die,
Though we be sick and tired und faint and wornc:
Co! all things can be borne."
A week elapsed; and Marian had uot left
her room. Several times, when grief's wild
waves wore dashing o'er her heart, she had
refused all friends. Not even father's voice
wns heard amidstthis wilder storm.
But, suddenly, a calm and gentle tone was
v.efl assumed. ? Marian came o?f, 'and dined
wi<->i thfcfamily. Her father kissed her brow,
and thanked her for her fortitude and heroism.
HoMtrow her to his heart, and said : "Child,
lbrlhy loved mother's sake, look up aud agaiu
The evening came, when, equipped for a
walk,' she bade good bye ; but soon returned
to tea, and retired early. They bade her rest
well, and try to be with them at the breakfast
hour. She smiled faiutly,?returned, aud
kissed them, each !!
Mnu's love is of man's life a thing apart :
?TU woman's whole existence;"
^"Alas the love of woman,?it is known
To be a lovely and a fearful thing!"
The morning bell rang vaiuly; she came
not at its call. '-Shu sleeps," said Mrs. li.
?1.11 wake her." The door was barred; uor
kuockj nor voice provoked a sound. The lock
\v.:s forced; and, pale and frosted o'er by
Death, lay that lone, lovely girl. The light
of life dissevered, Death, the reliever of our
mortal throes, had snapped that thread, and
left her blighted spirit at the Eternal gateway,
pleading for gome mercyJ'rom her God.
