THE OLD MILL.
Bessi was a skillful manager and

her fruits and berries were deliciou.,;
her two cows, sleek and well-fed and
indolent; her b:a tr, firm and goldon;
her poultry, in good order; hor eggs,

tuons song in i1mi tatinu of the forest
birds. It is a gl )rious thing to love
as they did. No cloud of distrust,
no sha.low of reproach, no poi8onotis
simoon of jealonsy ever swept .neross
their wedded life. Their thoughts
and affections wore centred in each
other; their hopes and ambitions ziung
to each other, and the prayers that
night and morning. aseended to the
throne of God, were for and in behalf
of cachi other.
May camne, enchanting May. The
sno w-wreaths of winter had vanisbhed
before her warm and fragrant breath
and festoons of gorgeous flowers hung
in their places. Beautiful indeed was
the first (liy of May. The carth
seemed to have donned her bridal
paraphernalia. The dew lay upon the
greeni grass like diamonds upon a bed
of oemeralds; the sunbeamus fulling
upon the river caused it to glisten
like a sheet of quivering gold and the
lazy minnows and pere tes sought the
shallow plnees that they mlighbt b)ask
thenmselves in tile Day God's glorious
presence. The willows wvaved gently
to and fro, their graceful, feathery
branes reflected upon the water be
neathi, while the lilies steeped ever
and kissed the rivor like merry chil
dren at play. Bunt this old muill was
silent, no sound disturbed its gloom,
the wheel hung mlotionless, the door
was elosed, the windows fastened,
The angel of lovoliness brooded ov
the place. Up at the cabin the as
poet of affairs was not more ohoerfal.
The angel of death brooded there.
The silenee was almost profound,
broken only by the soft footfall of a
gentle watcher and the great, heart
rending sobs of a stricken mourner..
In a darkened room, on a bed whose
draperies lookqd white and ghostly, a
fair young wifo and mother lay d.ying
and over her hung the husband of two
brief, happy years. Closely n"stled
to her bosom lay a sleeping infant
scare. three months eold as sweet and
lovely as an augel's smile--a perfect

strengih she embraces her husband

pour ,words ,of eqnusolp~tion into the

One struggle,: one convulsive gasp,

daisy.covered mound after you and
she had spent a long life together, but
when death comes sudden and unex

how you shrink and shudder and re

black and gloomy to your appalled
vision I How you pray for death, how
you cry out in your black despair as
Isreal's king did for Absalom, his
pride and liopo--"would to God that

"We wind our life about another life,"
We ho'd it closer, dearer than our own,
Anon it faints in earthly strife,
beaving us stuntned and stricken and alone,
htt ab ! we do not. die w,th those we love,
his also can be borne."
How much the heart may bear and
yet not break. Pierre lived on for
long and weary years after beautiful
133sic had moulderod to dust and the
green grass had eirpeted her grave.
Lived on for the sake of bonnie little
Raehol who grew and bloomed miracu
lously in the gloomy atmosphere of
the old cabin and the old mill. "A
babe in a house is a well-sprng of
pleasure, a messenger of peace and
love, a talent of trust, a loan to be
rendered back with interest," and in
time Pierre began to love his child
with all his strength and to endeavour
to rear her as her mother would have
dono if she had iot gone to the grave.

Lopes as a general has been acknowl

recollecting these considerNtions, and
with the full facts before us, it is.hard to

We copy the following from the

York Commercial Advertliser:
At a drawing reception that took
place ]ast Saturdaky evening, Mr. Rev.
vla, escorted by Setator Anthony and
Representative inghnm, suddenly
came upot the :eno of fes.ivity with
sitch Vithering eT-ct, ',at of the twenty
or thirty Democrat! esent not a half
dozenv was visible alter the first half
hour. Bloom will tell, especially in a
close room of at warm night. I in-it a
number of those malcontents standing on
the sldewalkf. MAngen was addressing
them in rather heated terms. "I will
repudiate the nigger," said he, "as I
would repudiate the debt. But I am
glad to see the issue made at last, We,
who got out of the way, can stand it if
those who have to face the music can."
This feeling, with the consistent op.
ponents of the negro grows in int.ns0ty
as It .veto grows ilnRadical grace, is
epitomized im a parody of "Shoo Fly,"

Among the rumors afloat concerning
the convulsion with which fashionable
society is threatened, in consequence of
the introduction of our colou ed brothet
we find one to the Offect that the wife
of the Russian Ambassador has refused
to atteid sociables or reunions where
any of these "knights of the crispy

against the innovation.
ANorthorn View of the t;to Immigration
"I'. is surprising, for example, to learn
that, one small associatiotr workin'g in
Newberry District, a fine country with
a beautiful climate and laying in the'
middle region, between the auind and
the hills, alone has ititroduced almost
500 Muropoan iinnigrants --Swedos we
tako theml to bo, for the gf-Wentan- who,
gave the account of them went onl to
any, that. "if you give a Swedish laborer
a peck us mnur anud three ponn s of

and he added something to the effect
that the Swede is a free man, who comes
to this country to better his conditione
and not to be a serf an.. who must te
treated accordingly. These remark,
were made in a convention which sat'
for smveral days in Charleston, and
included delegates from Georgia as well
as from all parts of South Caroliin.
Looking over the report of the proceed
ings, we noted an en'tire absence of then
spirit bnt recently prevading the Soutl
Carolinan mind-the Fpirit which
demands, not immigrants who desire
to better thensolves Mnt (t servile
peasantry.. It sypp-Pard is if there were'
now a genuine wish to foster the sort of
immigration from abroad ard from the
North and East whieh has built up the
State' of the West and ade them the
wonder of the worid ; and an elaborato
plan to accoemplish the desired result
was' submit,ted to the convention, and,.
