1 come In the breath of the waken'd breeze,
I kisa the flowers, end I bend the trees
And I (hake the dew which hnth fallen by night,
Prom its throne on Hie lily'e pure bosom of white.
Awake liiee, when bright from my couch in ttie ky,
I beam o'er the mountain! and come from on high;
When my gay purple banner! are waving afar
When my herald, gray drawn, hath extinguished enrh star
When I f mile on the woodlands, and bend o'er the lake,
T?hon awake tlice, 01 maiden, I bid thee awake. .
Then may'st sturaaer when all the wide arches of heaven
Glitter bright with the beautiful fires of even;
Wlien'the moon walk! In glory, and look! from on high.
O'er the clouds floating far through: the clear azure iky, :
Drifting onward the beautiful vessels of heaven,
V To their da away harbour, allillently driven . .. ,
Bearing on In their bosoms the children of light,
Who have fled from this dark world of sorrow and night:
When the lake lies In calmness and darkness, save where
The bright ripple curb 'noaththe smile'of a itar;
When all Is in silence and Bolitude here,
then sleep, maiden sleep, without sorrow or fearl
But when I steal silently over the lake,
Awake thee, then, maiden, awakel Oh awakel .
The sun is In the West,
The stari are on the sea,
Each kindly hand I've pressed,
And now farewell to thee!
Our cup of parting done, . .
'TIs the darkest I can sip,
And I've pledged them every one,
With my heart and with my Hp;
But I came to thee the last,
That in sadnese we might throw,
. Ono look o'er the past
Together Ere I go.
I met thee In my spring,
When my heart was like the fly
That on its nlry wing
Sports the live long summer by;
I loved thee with the love
Of a wild and binning boy,
Thy being was inwove,
With my grief and with my joy.
Thou wert to me a !'ar
In the silenco of the night,
A tiling to see from far,
Willi a fear and a delight,
The hour of joy is gone
When man and man depart,
The deep wrung hand alono
May tell the angulsh'd heart;
No tear may stain the eye,
And' their parting look must be
Like the stillness of the sky,
Ere the storm has swept the soo;
But when we say farewell
To her we love the best, ; -One
bitter tear may swell
Nor shame flie stoutest breast.
I would not thnt my name
Bhou d ever meet thine ear:
1 have smiles for men's acclaim,
. For their censures not a fenr.
Nor would I, when tby home
Looks Joyously and bright,
That the thought of me should come,
To sadden thy delight!
I would dwell a thin? apart,
For thy spirit to deacry,
A brightness on thy heart,
A shadow on thlno eye.
When the wine cup circle round,
I will quaff It with the rent.
But thy name will nover sound
At the revel or the feast;
But with him who shares my honrt,
When the banquet hall is lone,
la ono deep cup ere we pari,
We will pledge tlieo, lovely oicl
Thy name I'll murmur then
With a prayer. If heaven allow,
To embrace thee onco again
As close as I do now,
Beloved one farewell)
And though no hupe be given,
Thy name shall be a spell,
' To .mm my thouf'its to tlcavcn;
' And thy memory to me,
' What the dew is' to alio rose, '
It shall come as gratefully
n the hour of my repose:
It shall be what it has been
A lamp Iwllhin a tomb
To burn tlio' all unseen,
To light tho' all Is but a gloom.
When the shade is on thy dwelling,
And tho murmur on thine oar,
Whon tho broozo is round thee swelling,
And the landscape dork and drear;
When no lover is beside thee
" To flatter and to smile, . -,
When there bo nono to guide thee,
"And many to beguile -When

NEW PHILADELPHIA, OHIO., THURSDAY) EVENING, JULY 8, 18411
From ths Old Dominion.
THE PAATXWC HISS.
"His act did nut o'ertnke hi had inlant, ' '
And thnrefnie must be buried as ml intent
That must be buried by the waj."S!iateptare
The driver Bounded Ilia horn, and in one hour I waa
to Jopart in the atage f-ir my native State. The idea
of revisiting the home of my childhood, oT meeting
with my brothers and sisters, and beholding once more
my aged parents, beffire the grave should ' hide them
forever from my view, filled mo with rapture which I
never had experienced before, - Already transported in
imagination over the long journoy, I rsesivod the joy
ous welcome of the happy family. My good old fath
er met me at the gate with the kindest demonstration!
of affection; my mother, now feeble with yearn and
treoibling with affliction, tottered half way down tho
stops to grasp my hand, and unable to restrain her teol '
ings, burnt into tears, whilst utf little acriout sister.
Clam, ran to my arms, end folding her! about my neck
could not refrain, even in the midst of her gladness
from affectionately chiding me fur not answering her
letters. Blessed little sister I I kissed her pretty black
eye and promised to do bettor in future; and there was
a joy ay, a rapture even in this reverie of imngina
tinn, which, if it could but last, I would not barter for
the wide world's wealth, and all its honor's besides.
But every bliss has its bane. The reflection that I
had to part with Fanny Morrison, whom I hud so much
loved, even unto adoration, sooii put an end to this
glow of happy feeling, nnd spread in my heart a cor
responding poignancy of misery, This is the nature of
happiness. There is not a glad emotion of the breast
which is not quickly chased by some obtrusive care.
The visits of joy are as those of the votaries of fashions
able life; and the bosom that is elated by her transitory
presonco,will assuredly experience an equal depression
at her dcpartuie. Her smiles are like the vivid flashes
of lightning that play upon the brown cheek of night,
but vanish in an instant, and leave behind fourfold
darkness. I thought of home, and my soul expanded;
thought of Fanny, and it sank in dejection. I loved
this fair and excellent creature, not that the beauty of
her whole sex seemed epitomized in her form and free,
but more for the higher brilliancy of her polished mind,
and above all because ofher unsophisticated purity of
heart. My love was reciprocated. Daily we renew
ed our vows of perpetual constancy, and the green
eyed monster, jealousy, never sullied our minds or dis
turbed our repose; but mutually confiding, we enjoyed
all the luxury oftenderest affection, unmixed with the
bitterness of doubt and distrusl; and iflhnre be such a
positive happiness on earth "it in this, it i thi."
From my first acquaintance with Fanny, I had never
been separated from her even for a week at a t me; to
pnrt with hor now, and possibly forever it seemed
I had alieady taken leave of heron the eveningof the
preceding day; but now that I was about to enter upon
my journey almost immediately, I could not resist the
inclination, which increased in ardor as the lime ofdes
parture drew nearer, once more to seize the fair soft
hand, and say, "Good byo.". I hastened to her dwel
ling. She was at her piano, playing the plaintive air
ol "Roy's Wife," the very tone which, of all others,
I most delighted to hear; nnd slis could play, Ion, with
luch enchanting skill so touching to the heurit As I
entered the room, she censed tne music, but quickly
resumed it at my request, nnd accompanied the instru
ment with a voice that breathed all the magic harmony
ofNourliamnl. She sang
"Fare thee well, since thou must leave mo;
l!ut O, lot net our parting grieve thee,
For I will still be thine, believe ma."
And there was an applicability in those words to my
situation, such a suitableness of sentiment to the occa
sion, that made them sink deep into my burning heart,
and altho' I cannot sny, that the music, like St. Cecil
ia's, "drew nn angel down," I will say that she sang
like an angel; and wore all the celestial loveliness of
one, Could the song nover close, and her bea:;iy
never die, who would ask fora'brigh -r heive.i?
As she finished the strain, she closed the lid ol the
piano, and turning hor beautiful "bonny blue eyes,
upon me, said "I now have a task for jou to perfor.n,'
"And what is that task?" I inquired. "It is,' said she,
"a compliance with your promiso, made a long time
ago, to write an original piece in my Album, the eve
ning is favorable tor poetry, and I insist upon your wri
ting.' At first, I thought this was merely intended to
divert my mind from Ihe melancholy which she per
ceived wan gathering around it; for I was so far from
. evor being guilty of writing poetry that I really could
not believe for a moment that she seriously thought me
capable of writing poetry, bul in a few minutes she
took from the book case a neatly bound Album, and
spreading it on the labia where pen and ink were pre.
viously placed, she invited me to the task with an air
of solemnity which could not fail to convince me that
the request was made more in earnest than thro' cour
tesy. What could I do I had not the heart to refuse
nor the genious to comply. My brain was as dry as
the remainder biscuit allcr . a voyage Never did I
Hand so much in need of mind, or deplore this want so
much, as oa this occasion. True the evening was se
rone and beautiful, and misht have warmed the breast
that had the least spark of poetical feeling about it, but
mine had no. dormant enorgies of this nature to awakon
. and neither the kindling influence of fine weather, nor
the more inspiring power of Fanny's, proeense, could
remove my constitutional innoility .to rhyme. To at
tenr-t it, I knew very well that the failure would he so
completely shameful that I should lose much of her
..esteem, and yet not to do it, must inevitably incur her
most serious displeasure. I determined, however to
risk the attempt, and seating myself by the Inbloi Iseiz
ed the pen in despair, dipped It in the stand, and tur.
ning my eyes upwards but hot in "fine frenzy rolling,"
I began recogitating on what subject I should fix my fan
. eiful effusion. - ', ,. . , ',
1 had romainod is. this attitude but' a sfwrt time, be
. fqra pay musings appoared lo be unceremoniously inter ,
rupted. The whole family were In a busy Hiproar. The
servants Were running in every direction, from room to
room, actively engaged in cleaning and decorating the
mansion. Some were hanging new .damask curtains
over" the windows) some regulating the . glasses' on
... well loaded side-bperd; others replenishing the flower
pot with vater leaves. . The Turkey carno ,wa, re
' J V.- ';! ' - -
moved, aod the Soor dry-rubbed; indeed allthe prepar
ations usually nude for a dancing party wet going on,
and apparently for that purpose. Piesentlyla servant
girl entered the room with a bundle of evertreans, with
which she commenced decorating the manje-piece, Sl
then proceeded to a Inre mirror, that hungln the wall
opposite to m, in such portion that it relfccted to my
view the image of Funny, as she lay recliHfig on tliw
sofa in a thoughtful and pensive manner, jlarcountes
nance is frequently tinged with slight meljncholy; but
now it teemed to weai a deep gleom. I cjrtainly had
never seen her face so clouded by sadness e"ore; it was
pale. Hor cyei pored on the floor, her mind appeared
lo be abstracted, for she look no notice o( what was
going on till the servant maid inquired if mo designed
tohovo the walls of the parlor festooned with vinns.
"Do asou please," she repliedj' and rising from the
sofa, she left the room with a tear, as I Alklit, quiver
ing iiitlieVWt thti'cyi.A'.-, V
What could be the meaning of lliis? 1 could form no
possible conjecture. I inquired of the servant her
words were as a dagger to iny heart. "Why, have
you not heard,' fnid she, 'that this is JWiss Fanny's
wedding nightl"I could hear no more: the maU would
have proceeded, but my brain reeled, and I fell upon
the floor in a state ofinsensibility. How lsng 1 re
mained in that, situation I know not, but I was awa
kened from it by the entrance of a tall young gentle
man, of handsnmo deportment, and splendidly attired ,
with a "broad felicity offace,' bespeaking Jlight mind
and a happy heart. It was for his coming that all these
preparations were made; for he was my happy rival ,
who was that very night to be married to the fair Fan
ny. Prompted by desperation, I Seized at the villain's
throat! He fled. Ho was my friend; we were born in
the same village, educated at the same school, and, had
been intimate from our boyish days; I woro him in my
heart's core, and not a circumstance had ever transpired
until the present occurrence, to weaken tho hand of
brotherhood that bound us together. Of nil my acquain
lainces, he was the only one to whom I had commu
nicated the secret of my attachment to Fanny. He a
bused that confidence to supplant me in her affections.
And shall I bow in degrading humiliation to the wrong?
No rather let me perish first. Cursed be the coward
arm that falters in a just revenge. With imprecations
on my rival's head I fled ihe hul.italioo.
All idea of my journoy was now banished from my
mind; my every thought was devoted to revenge, my
heart was u furnace of exasperated passions; my very
blood boiled with voncennce. Hetiring to my room I
wliclted iny dagger am! re. loaded my pistols. I will
mar his mirth said I to myself. I will burst upon -him
in tho midst of his anticipated heayen like an unexpec
ted Abelmo. And lot not mistaken piely denounce all
human vengeance as unrighteous. The serpent is crush
ed in the earth because of his guile which converted the
bhwm of Eden into a wilderness of .vo; and so should
tlm il.mu.il still be crushed, when, forsakinii his reptile
shnpe, he assumei the human form, and spreads over
the onradieo of the hoarl a wintry desolation, lteadcr,
when vou hnve loved as I have Invud, and niesupplan
ted by a wretch falling binr.self.your friend, Jmt whose
smilus are the very "fiends arch un-ck'.then will you
be ready 10 exclaim with me, "Who II sleep- m saiety
that halh done this wroi.g?"
I know not how ihe time passed off, but nightfall
had now enmcon, Dressing myself in apparel suited
for the wedding, thilher I wont, sternly determined to
speak dangers to the bride, nnd to use one on the treach
erous author of my misery. The guests had assembled
and the nuptial hour had almost arrived, the brides
maid was placing the last flo vsr m the hndnl wreath,
ar.d as she twined it in the shining curl, I heard her
distinctly singing the beautiful lines of Mrs. He tans
"Bring flowers, brine flowerr for the bride to wear,
They were born to blush in her shining hair,
She is lenving tho scenes ol her childish mirth,
Her place is now by another's side,
Bring flowers for the lock of the fair young bride."
The long parlor was plentifully, illuminated. The
chandelier, mspendid in the centre, threw around a bril
liant light, which the mirrors augmented by reflection,
whilst the ivnrui flashes from the sparkling ejes of the
laughing girls still added to the blaze and made the
room glow with the Imtrenf Ihe skies. The light nf
heaven wbs Ihern, and merriment . was there. The
voung voices mingling in spriahlly conversation, were
so many separate tones of melody; and mirth was in all
all was gladness, nnd to one whose heart had not
been rendered impenetrable lo joy, it wns so sweet to
look upon the innocent fnces, and to wilness the unaf
fected vivacity that prevailed. Onrelrnu'd have en
joyed the scene; hut the chord in my hoFnm that might
have vibrated in unison, was now snapped asunder, Ar.
amidst all this galetv, nnd joy, and oeauty my heart re
turned its midnight dnrknoss, still brooding over us ru
in, and nourishing its gloomy wiaih. I mixed not
with the iovons company, but reti ing to the remotest
corner of the room, I fo lded my arms and impatiently
awaited the coming of the bridegroom and his bride,
when I might take, even at ihe altar of Hvmon, that
sanguinary vengeance which despair prompted, and my
wrongs justified. '
They soor. came. There wai lilence in tho hall. I
raised my eyes and beheld the happy couple standing
on the floor"; their attendants ranged on either side. The
whole company pressed forward to look upon the fair
young bride. Never had one shone so beautiful; never
had Funny appeared so lovoly lo my eyes as then. A
long white veil fell lightly over her forehead, like a
milk-white cloud floating before the evening star; she
blushed and the carnation on her cheek shone like the
glancing sunbeam on the '-Hill of Betilomen." Her
tresses were darker than the ravea's wicg thoy rolled
. in glossy curls down Ihe neck, snd spread upon her
ivory shoulders. Her form was the perfection of humon
svmmelry; she was the statue nf Medici animated to
life by the warmest, brightest fire of heaven, exhibiting
a constellation of beauty where every charm mingled
its light in one unbounded blazo. I gazed opon her.and
the recollection of former times came rushing upon my
soul. 1 thought of the many evenings 1 hod spent with
her in this same hall, under happier circumstances, nf
the many protestations of eternal love exchanged be
tween us as we walked arm in arm, to church , of sab
bnlh mornings, and of the timsi that we loitered on the
banks ofa neighboring river, and titling-honeath the
umbrageous oak, would talk oftjie fairest prospects of
happiness when we should be united in marriage as we
were in affection. Often has she told me.in these delight
ful rambles, that Heaven .haddesigned us for each Oth
er I for her, she for me; snd little did I dream that I
should ever behold her the bride of another. I should
not behold it A thousand times would I. have rather
. gone with sprig ( r roaeoiarv in my finger to view her
in tho ruins ef death. And here let ma beg the leader
to forgive my weakness. Mock not my misery. If
Jou cannot sympathize With tho afflicted,- let lit part,
write for those of the softer mould, with more ol the
Mmilk of human kindness" In tbeir nature, who can
feel another's wo, who loye to bind the brok en spirit
. and to pour the balm of consolation into the agonized
bosom of despsir. 1 There are suchYand,' ye generous
' ew. I thank vou in the name of the .afflicted, whose

their hearts have become desolate, and they stand in
need of all the consolation to be derived from the ten.
derestsympsthies of friendship, the virtuous will ver
ex lend it the vicious have none to bestow.
But to return to my sto.y. The venerable minis,
ter who wasjlo to unite the happy couple in wedlock,
now asmmed his station on the floor, and in a mo
ment all was silence. Whilst he was addressing to
them a few preparatory ulnionilions, I silently made
my wav through the crowd and planted myself at my
rival's "back. I laid my hand upon my dagger; 'twas
strange my heart began to falter in its steadiness. Then
it was that the enormity of the act which I was' about to.
perpertrate, flashed across my mind in all its horror
He still looked like the fiend -of my youth; to imbue
my hands in his blood to murder him it seemed too
horrid; I trembled in every joint, and a cold perspira
tion bedewed my forehead nnd et must he triumph
in my ruin? Math he not wronged met Is not ven
geance mine, and shall i shrink from tho meditated
blow? There was a mighly conflict in my bosom bo
tweon its gentle impulses and its angry passions; but
vtuigcance triumphed. I .thought my rival beheld mei

he stood before in all the blacfthess of his guilt a per
fidious demon, who hadTriercllessly lobbed me of my
life's life. The aged minister proceeded in the marriage
CMremony. 'If any know a lawful reason why these
two should not bo joined in the holy slate of matrimo
ny, lot them apeak." He paused as if foi a reply- Now
was my time. I touched the bride upon tho shoulder:
she turned. "Be not alarmed," I cried, "for I medi
tated no injury to you. O, Fanny, when I admired the
brightness of your beauty I did not think your bosom
had the diamonds hardness to)." I could sny no
more, utterance forsook mo, and in the fienzy of de
spair, twisting my fingers in the locks of the bewilder
ed bridegroom, at one convulsive effort I felled him on
the floor, and planted my knee upon his breast. The
whole company were petrified to marble. Before they
could sufficiently recover from their panic, to render
assistance to the imploring victim at my feet' I pointed
my pistol at his throbbing temple. At this moment
the fair Fanny caught me by the hand and giving it a
gentle and affectionate pressure, she said 'Come, come,
are you not going to write in my Album? lthnsbeeti
almost an hour since you sealed yourself down fur Ihat
I urpose.' 'Write in your Album, fair creature?' said I;
'why yes, I will write in your Albuml' And so says
ing aroused me from the reverie into which I had fallen
from the time 1 took my seal by the table,, and wns
much relieved on finding that the above droadful cir
cumstancos existed only in a dream of imagination. A
gnin I dipped my pen in the etand, and having nothing
poetic about ire, I penned the above. The stngo horn
summoned mess I finished, and ljust had time to print
on Fanny's lip the Partino Kiss.
TRUE lit Aim. ) -It
is, methinks a low and degrading idea of that sex
which was created to refine the joys and soften the
cares of humanity, by the most agieenhle participation,
to consider Ilium niciely as objects of Might. This is
abridging them of their imtunl extent of power, to put
them upon a level with their pictures. How much
nobler is the contemplation of beauty heightened by
viltue, and commanding our esteem uud love, while it
draws our observation? How faint and spiritless nre
the charms of a noquetle when compared with the rial
loveliness of Honoria's innocence, piety, good humor
and truth; virtues which add a new soilness lo her sex,
and oven beautify her beamy! That iigreeablnneaa which
iiiust nave olherwue appeared no longer in the mo
dest virgin, is now preserved in the tender mother, the
prudent friend and the faithful viife. Colours artfully
spread upon canvass, mny entertain the eye but not
affect the heart; and she who taket no car- to add to
the natural graces of the person toy excellent quali
ties, may be allowed still to amuse as a picture, but
not lo triumph as a beauty.
When Adam was introduced by Milton describing
Eve in paradise and relating to the angel the impres
sion he felt upon seeing her at her first creation, he
doos not represent her like a Grecian Venus, by her
shape or features, but by the lustre of her mind which
shone in them, and gave them the powr of charming.
Grace was in all her stops, beav'n in her eye,
In all her gestures dignity and love.
Without I his irradiating power, the proudest fair
one ought to know whatever her glass may tell her
to the contrary, that her most perfect features are un
informed and dead.
