As Mary, with her lip qt rosee, .
Was tripping o'er tho flowery mead,
A foolish littlo bco supposes
The rosy lip, a roso indeed; ' ,
And so, astonished at thc bliss,
Ho steals tho hbney of her kies.1
Ho wantons thero a moment lightly
He sports away on careless wings
But, ah, why swells that wound unsightly?
* The rascal! ho has loft a sting.
She runs to mo with weoping eyos
Sweot images of April skies.
m J|Be this," said I, "to heedless misses,
A warning they should bear in mind;
For oft a lover steals their kisses, .
Then flies and leaves a sting behind."
"This may bo wisdom, to be sure,"
Said Mary; "but I want a cure." i
What could I do to caso tho swelling?
My lips and hors dolighted meet;
And, trust mo, from that lovely dwelling
I found tho very poison sweet.
Fond bovl unconscious of its smart,
I 8Uckc(?^io poison to my heart!
THE m$0N ANO NEGRO*
About tho end of tho last century,
I was called out of Inverncsshiro to
attend a meeting of the General As1
senibly of the Church of Scotland,
in Edinburgh; nud having beeu but
newly placed over my charge, my
circumstances wero but as yot so
limited that, upon making tho neces?
sary preparations for tho journey to
Edinburgh, I could muster no moro
than ono poor solitary half-crown in
cash tc meet my traveling expenses
a sum totally iuadequato to pay any,
or but a small part, of my means of
conveyance. Tho call bciug hurried,
I had no timo to writo to auy of my
brethren for tho needful funds, and
not caring to ask this of any of my
parishioners, but expecting . that,
?when I came to Ediuburg, I would
get such assistauco as I required,
from SODIO of my brethren, or some
friends whom I kuew, I resolved tc
set out on foot, husbanding my pre?
cious half-crown in such a way as
would afford mo tho necessary vic?
tuals, without having recourse tc
bogging . during tho journey. Re
ceiving tho letter of convention ir
tho afternoon, I resolved to start nex'
morning, thero being only five day!
before tho meeting of tho Assembly.
In the dim dawu, accordingly, I wai
on my way; nud after pushing on fo:
an hour or two, and entering tin
high road for Inverness to tho South
I descried, somo distance ahead o
me, a man on horseback, leading ii
his hand another horse. Having
como up with tho rider, who wai
going forward at an easy paco, !
begau to bo afraid, and tremblet
when I saw that the man was quit
black. You must remember I was i
young mau and a Highlander, an<
though I had heard of tho black mai
of the Indies, yet, considering tb
ur*" ?able hour, and, as I hat
r - ^earu ot any black man eve
having been eeeu iu that neighbor
hood before except the dovil, win
was believed to assume that appeal
ance, I was not without some doubt
of this strange apparition, and io
some timo I narrowly watched th
man and his movements. Havinj
ventured to accost him, I perceive
ho was eagor for conversation, whic
was carried on while I kept cautiousl
to tho other side of tho road. A
length, having told him I was goin
tb Edinburgh, tho black man replie
that ho was bound thitherward alse
and offered mo tho hcrso that ho lee
This, as my misgivings regarding th
personality of tho black horsema
had beguu to givo way, I was glad i
accept, inwardly thanking Provident,
for having thus favored me with sue
It turned out that the black mn
was tho servant or slave of a ric
Jamaica planter, who was ut thi
time homo on a visit to Highton
friends, and that tho spare horso wi
for tho master, who had gone forwai
a day iu nilvanco of the horseman, I
enjoy a walk through tho Highland
My good fortune was not then qnil
so great as I had at first calculate
but fyet I was very glad. Tho di
was spent'very pleasantly, tho bia?
man raising my astonishment by co
versing freely iu Giolje, which,
appeared, was well known in tl
West Indies; while I myself, takii
an advantage of tho occasion, ni
anding tho man was willing to lear
as he was also ignorant of religio
spent tho most of the day's journ
in unfolding to him. the truth of t
divine record, until I came to regn
my ucw friend, whom, from his wi
and swarthy looks, I nt first look
upon with dread und abhorrence, wi
a brotherly affection, founded n
only on our common relationship
the first, but also to the second A,da;
When the night was coming dow
and we had entered the bleak li
country, we left tho main road a
struck up through the hills, expect]
to find some human habitatic
where, for the saleo of the horsi
wo might spend tho time; but, afl
pursuing our errand for some tin
without anything appearing tu ni<
our desire, and our ronto having )
come very fatiguing and dungeroi
the ground being everywhere brok
and puddled, and often covered
tho thick and iutergrowing heath
wc came to a halt, and having
other resort, set about making p
parations for spending thc night
tho open nir. Willing to mako c
moro effort for the sake of tho ben?
I proposed ascending to tho top o
high hill that appeared to tho Sou
ward, and leaving tho black with 1
horses. I reached tho summit of 1
hill in about half an hour, and v
delighted to catch in my eye tho c
faint glimmering of the light of a
habitation* and? iUvingTiiiaxkedi tke
pobitiojn of, tho dight, r at on??ire

now remounted; and after a little
moro fatigue and a low escapades,
arising aa mucji from our ignorance
ol the ground as^from ita real $i??
ciUty, we Mrive'd nt tho place to which
tho light directed us.' This turned
out to be a bohanart, or shepherd's
shielding, rather larger than tho or
diuary dimensions, and looking by
no menus uncomfortable, and having
secured and provided for tho horses
for tho night in an ouclosure back of
tho shielding, wo entered the bonan,
where wo fouud i\ blazing fire, but no
human being. However, ns wo were
now in need thereof, wo set about
preparing our evening menl, trusting
to tho well-known hospitality of tho
shepherds, that tho liberty wo were
taking would not bo taken amiss.
After our repast, being greatly fa?
tigued, we grew heavy aud inclined
to go to sleep, and observing a bed,
obscured by some drapery, in tho fur?
ther coruor of tho hut, we set about
examining it, and, finding it quite
comfortable, wo both stripped us ol
our clothes, drew everything iusidt
the curtains, and lay down to sleep.
We had fallen asleep but shortly,
when wo were awakened by a lout
and confused noise outside tho hut
which wo soon recognized to bo tin
voices of a number of men. Stamp
ing aud swearing, they rushed in
seized hold of a small tablo at tin
foot of the bed, and placing it iu tin
middlo of the floor, they began emp
tying out great sums'of money upoi
it, which, or the parting thereof, ap
pearcd to form thc matter of thei
dispute. As it now sufficiently np
penrod to me ami my friend that thea
ruffians wero no oilier thau highwa;
robbers, aud that it was iu their chief
bed wo wero now lying, and wo wer
drivei?, to tho extremity of despair
not kuo"wiug what to do. As soon n
discovered, we could expect nothini
at tho hands of these bloody and law
less mcu but certain death, iu on
form or another; if wc dared move
we wero discovered; aud if wo rt
maiued as wo were, thero was- hard!
a chauce that we should eveutuall
escape observation. Being almos
afraid to breathe, aud nearly stup?fie
with the squabbling aud swenriug t
the ruffians, I at length, in tho coi
rogo of despair, whispered in tho sr
of tho black man these words:
"My dear friend, God is ahvav
good, and helps ns in our time <
need; have faith, and do this-seeiti
that Gpd has giveu you a skin diffe
ing so much from the peoplo of th
country, you will seizo my stick, an
rise up naked in your black skin, tb
first time they mention the name t
tho devil, and rushing up to then
cry out: 'What, in my name, is tin
yo? <1r>'' "
Then, waiting his opportunity
which was not loug in .coming, tl
black mau, spriugin.c; from tho fob
of the curtains, aud rolling up li
eyes aud showing his great paw
roared out in Gaelic the words I ga'
him. This lucky idea brought tl
desired result. The black no soon
appeared iu his Satanic charact
thau tho villains scampered away lil
BO many seared sheep.
After a fervent ' 'Praise be to God
wo began dressing as quickly as pc
sible for our departure; "for," sn
I, "though we aro perhaps safer he
now than wo can bo anywhere eh
tho villains being so superstitio
that they will, not venture with
some miles of tho place before da
light, yet, with tho first break of do
they will bc sure to return to s
after their money; aud if theu iou:
iu tho neighborhood, we shall faro
indeed." We next gathered up a:
secured the money, for tho purpc
of having it restored. to those w
might claim it. Much of it \t
paper, and it omouuted to a gr<
Bilm; aud I wondered how such
amouut of money could have coi
within reach of robbers iu that pi
of the country. Wo equipped 01
selves, moreover, with two of i
lanterns which tho robbers lind 1
behind iu their fright, aud havi
got out the horses, wo were ready
start. Tho black then proposed
burn tho hut, and, suiting tho acti
to tho word, he thrust a barning p
iuto tho wall, and flared a wisp
burning straw over the roof, and
soou had a blaze, which, the bli
said, would let us seo how to set t
on our way, as it had guided us on
The night was very dark, there be
no moon, and the sky overcast w
clouds, and we hud.no sign to gn
us but the wind on our checks,
were not, indeed, without apprch
sion that we might full in with so
one of thc seared bandits, but
black said he was prepared to m
them all again. We continued <
nocturnal march for many hoi
without sight or sound of anyth
to realizo our apprehensions, i
held, as well as wo could reckon, <
South until we got into a moro o]
part of tho country. We then
pected that wo should soon cit
reach tho high road or some hun
habitation, and wero beginning
assure ourselves that we lind now
clear of tho enemy, whim both
horses gave a loud snort, pulled br
and snuffing air, were eager to phi
away in n new direction.
Wo stopped, and called for any
to answer us. Theu, ?cceiving
reply, we dismounted, and resol
to know what was befcro us; and
black saying ho was the fittest ma:
moot anybody, took his lantern
went to search. Ho had not fai
go, when ho stumbled on a wi
figure lying bn the ground, and bring?
ing his lint??n?pvor f?r he a?vr it was
aman stiripj?i?of every thin? bulb's
under-clothing; and laying nis hand
upon his body, he found the man was
dead, and looking nt the fac.o, ho saw
it was his master. The black then
raised a howl of anguish, and threw
himself on his knoes, and began
beating .his breast and crying and
nobbing ivs if his heart was strug?
gling to burst, and it was long beforo
I could draw his attention to hear
that I was speaking, and to answer
my quostione, put for the hundredth
time. At last tho matter was explain?
ed, and tho black coming to guard
tho frightened horses, I went to look
at the body, au?i making a minuto
examination, stupefied the poor black
by crying out that I believed his
master was not dead. Tho poor
slave so far forgot Iii m soli that ho let
thc horses go, and ran up to his mas?
ter to be assured that he was not
really dead. "If wc only had brandy
or whiskey," ??-id I> "I think ho
would revive." Then the black, nay
ing ho had brandy at his saddles, ran
away again in pursuit of tho horses,
calling himself by no flattering
names for his stupidity in letting thc
horsos go, and almost immediately
came np the high, road, from which
it appeared wo had been but a little
way off when wo stopped. . Ho then
listened, and catching a sound of tho
horses' hoofSj ho bounded off in tho
direction indicated, and soon found
tho? poor animals, which -'were too
fatigued to run far, lazily moving
along and biting tho grass by the
road-side. He Avas soon back again
to my assistance; and leaving tho
horses on tho road with their bridles
tied toother, he came with a flask of
I had hy this time ascertained, by
tho aid of tho lantern, that thc
black's master had received a severe
blow on the head and a,kuifc wound
iu thc neck, which appeared to have
bled profusely, but that ho was still
alive, though ho was unconscious.
Wo lost no timo in* administering the
brandy, and before half an hour, we
had tho satisfaction of seeing the
wounded man so far recovered as to
be ablo to speak. Wo then dressed
and bound his wounds, and divesting
ourselves of part of our own gar?
ments, clothed him, and laid him
upon tho heather. Hero he remained
until day began to dawn, when thc
wouuded mnn, appearing so far re?
stored as- to bo ablo to bear lifting,
wo placed liim upon ono of tho
horses; and tho black man walking
by his side supporting him, wo jour?
neyed slowly onward until near thc
middle of tho day, when we carno in
sight of a fai'm-house, towards which
wo at onc2 made, and wcro most hos?
pitably received. Our sad plight was
sorely bewailed, the wounded man
put in a comfortable bcd, and had all
tho caro and kindness shown him
that could bo given in tho circum?
stances, while I was myself also i?
; doced to rest where I was for the day.
Thc poor gentleman told his story
as follows: "Ho had loitered longer
on the way than he had at first in?
tended, and having arrived about
midnight, the first night, at a publie
house some twenty miles North of tho
place where we then were; ho spent
the night there, and also part of thc
next day, amusing himself by getting
the stories and information of thc
place. Ho loitered on tho road the
second day as ho did on tho first, so
that ho did not reach the placo where
ho was found till some hours after
dark, though ho calculated to have
reached that distance by sunset, and |
tho next public house two or th reo
hours after. On reaching thc place
alluded to, he was surprised by a
number of men springing upon him
from tho road-side, and demanding
his purse or his life. He happened,
and, as it turned out, very foolishly,
to Lave a largo quantity of money
upon him; and not wishing to risk
.tho loss of such a sum in this way,
ho first remonstrated with tho men
on .the wickedness of their design,
and then o fie rod them five pounds
apiece. This appeared to satisfy
them, and he was allowed to pass on.
Ho had not gone very far, however,
when apparently, after a second con?
sultation, the men were after him
again, and coming np to him, thej
said they wished to know his name,
and immediately ho felt a blow on
j his head, and he remembered no
After thus hearing the wounded
man's narration, I produced thc
money found in tho bohnnnri, and
rehearsed our own story, and was de?
lighted in thus being guided by Pro?
vidence to restore the lost property
! to its rightful owner.
! Next morning, 1 started for tho
South upon tho planter's stied, and
i attended by one of .tho farm servants
to bring tho horses back. Tho black
remained to attend to his master,
who, having some knowledge of sur?
gery, was ablo to prescribe for him?
self until his further recovery should
enablo him to proceed on his journey.
On my way back to Edinburg, after
tho meeting of the Assembly, I called
at the farm-house to inquire for my
friends, but found that they had gone
a few days beforo. There was, how?
ever, a letter for me, and a packet,
which, on hoing opened, was found j
to contain nil the money that tho
black and I had* recovered from the
ONE THOUSAND boxes Sardines, just
received, and for salo at TWENTY
CENTS per box.

In introduciug this new and extraordi?

leans us to remark that too little attcution
is paid to tho "life of all flesh," tho blood.
Manv diseases, and, too. many complaints,

is offered to tho afllicteel a? a sure remedy
for thoso diseases arising from au impuro
condition of tho blood. It has a direct
and specific action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders thc blood puro. It
is said, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins 'to live thai ho begins to
die, and that tho charaetorisfics of the
living organism aro ceaseless chango and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is* pure, in supplying the wasto tis?

board Inland Freight Route, that letters
addressed to the Railroad Agent at Ports?
mouth, on tho subject of freights, aro un?
answered, and-tbat, in consequence, causes
of delay arc not explained and claims for
losses and damage unsettled; and as tho
Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad Company,
who arc tho forwarding agents for the lino,
are satisfied that these causes of complaint
are not duo to their agents, but to tho in?
accuracy of thc mails, in order to test this
subject, the Manager of tho Seaboard
