Broad rivers of tears;

In every strange, fantastie form,
And bared your nigged breast on high

To inflict its sting?

The mighty rath of Ilim above,
Whose glittering tcjisj far and near,

IThose ear is deaf to those who hate
His neighbor and his neighbor' all.
And Teipise the mandate of his God
Though Cscsar stained, perhaps, with crime,
And deeds of good were far between,

And true indeed each Romans daughter.

HORACE VARGRIYE'S CONFESSION1.
She lined her face, all blinded and blot
led by her tears, and looking at him for
one brief instant, let it fall again upon her
"Your nncle died Ellinor, and the fair
elevation of this palace of mv life, which
I had built with such confidence, was
fihivered to the ground, The fortune was
left to you on condition that you married
Henry Dalton. Women are ambitions.
You would never surely resign such a fort
une. You would marry young Dalton."
Ahia was the lawyers answer to the all
important question. But those tcnJer
gray eyes, looking up from under their
vail of inky lashes, had told a sweet ec
cret, and perhaps your generous heart
might count this fortune a very small
thing to flingaway for the sake of the man
you loveJ. This was the lover's answer,
ruid hoped still, Ellinor, to win my dar
ling. You were not to be made acquaint
ed with the conditions of your uncle's
will until you attained your majority.
You were, at the time ofliisdeatli.barely
twenty years ol age; there was, then, an
entire year in which vou would remain
ignorant of Die penalties attached to this
unexpected wealth. In the meantime, I,
as sole executor(your uncle, you see.trust
cd me most entirely), had the the custody
of the funded property John Arden, of
Arden, had left.
"I have told you, Ellinor, that I was a
speculator. My profession threw me in
the way of speculation. Confident in the
power of my own intellect, I staked my
fortune on the wonderful hazards of the
year 1816. I doubled that fortune, treb
led it, quadrupled it, and, when it had
grown to be four times its original bulk,
1 staked it again. It was out of my
hands, but it was invested in, as I thought,
eo safe a speculation, that it was as secure
as if it had never left my bankcs. The
railway company of which I was a direc
tor was one of the richest and most ilour
idling in England. My own fortune, as I
have told you, was entirely invested, and
was doubling iteelf rapidly. As your
uncle's trilstee, its your devoted friend,
your interests were dearer fo me than my
own. Why should I not speculate with
your fortune, double it, and then say to
you, 'See Ellinor, here are two fortunes,
of whichyou are the mistress; one you owe
to llenry Dalton, under the conditions of
your uncle's will; the other is yours alone.
You are rich. You are free, without any
sacrifice, to marry the man you love; and
this, Ellinor, is my work ?' This was
what I ought to have said to you at the
close of the great year of speculation,
"Oh, Horace, Horace 1 I see it all.
Spare yourself, spare me! Do not tell me
"Spare myselfl 2so Ellinor, not one
pang, not one heart-break. I deserve it
all. You were right in what you said in
the boudoir at Sir Lionel's. The money
was not ray own; no sophistry, no ingeni
ous twisting of facts and forcing of con
clusions.coulderer make it mine. How do
I know even now that your interests was
really my only motive in the 6tep I took?
How do I know that it was not, indeed,
the gamblers guilty madnessonly, which
impelled me to my crime? How do I
know? How do I know? Enough! the
crash came; my fortune and yours were
together engulfed in the vast destruction;
and I, the trusted friend of your dead
father, the conscientious lawyer, whose
name had become a synonym for hon
or and honesty; I.Horace WcltnoJen Mar
grave, only lineal descendant of the royal
ist Captain Margrave, who perished at
Worcester, righting for his king and the
honor of Iiia noble race; I, Ellinor, was a
cheat and a swindler a dishonest and
dishonorable man 1''
"Dishonoiablc, Horace ! No, no; only
"Mistaken, Ellinor ? Yes, that is one
of the words invented by dishonest men,
to slur Over theirdishonesty. The fraud
ulent banker in who3c ruin the fate of
thousands, who have trusted him and be
lieved in him, is involved, is, after all, as
his friends say, only mistaken. The
clerk, who robs his employer in the in
sane hope of restoring what he has ab
stracted, is, as Ills counsel pleads to a
soft-liearted jury, with sons of their own
only mistaken ! The speculator, who
plays the great game of commercial haz
ard with another man's money, he, too,
dares to look at the world with a pitiful
face, and cry 'Alas! I was only mistaken!'
So, Ellinor, I have never put in that
plea. From the moment of that terrible
crash, which shattered my whole life in
to ruin and desolation, I have, at least,
tried to look mv fate in the face. But I
lave not borne all my own burdens, El
linor. The heaviest weight Of my crime
has fallen upon the innocent shoulders of
Uenrv Dalton "
"Henry Dalton, my husband?'
"Yes, Elliuor. your husband, Henry
Dalton, the truest, noblest, most honora
ble, and most conscientious of men.''
You praise him so much," she said,
Yes, Ellinor, I am weak enough and
wicked enough to feel a cruel pain in be
ing compelled to do so; it is the last poor
luty I can do him. Heaven knows I
have done him enough injury!"
The exertion of talking for so Ions a
time had completely exhausted him, and
he fell back, half tainting.upon the pillows.
The eister of mercy, summoned from the
next apartment by Ellinor, administered
a restorative to him; an J, in low, bro
ken acceuts, he continued
"From the moment of my ruin, Elli
nor, I felt and knew that you were forever
lost to me. I could bear this: I did not
think my life would be a long one; it had
been hitherto lit by no star of hope,
shone upon bv no sunlight of love.

dark way to the end. 1 say, I could
bear this,but I could not bear the thought
of vour contempt, your aversion; that
was too bitter. I csuld not coins to you

loveJ you; I love you as 1 never before
loved, as I never hopid to love: but I
am a swindler and a cheat, and you can
never be mine.' 2o,Ellinor,I could not do
this; and yet you were on the eve of com
ing of age. Sonic step must betaken,
and the only thing that could save me
from this alternative was the generosity
of Henry Dalton.
"I had heard a great deal of your
uncle's adopted son, and I hai met him
very often at Arden; I knew him to be as
noble and true a hearted iriin as ever
breathed the breath of human life. I dc
termined, therefore, to throw myself upon
his cencrositv. and to reveal all. .'He
will despise me, but I can bear his con
tempt better than the scorn of the woman

night the night after Henry Dalton hai
first seen you, and had been deeply fasci
nated with the radiant beauty of my love
ly ward, that very night after the day on
which you came of age I took Henry
Dalton into my chambers in Verulam
Buildings, and, after binding him witli
an oath of the most implicit secrecy, I told
"You now understand the cruel position
in which Henry Dalton was placed. The
fortune, which he was supposed to pos
ter on marrying you, never existed. You
were penniless, except, indeed, for the
undred a year coming to you from your
mother's property. His solemn oath for
bade him to reveal this to you; and for
three years he endured your contempt,
and was silent. Judge now of the wrong
I have done him 1 Judge now the noble
heart which you have trampled upon and
"Oh, Horace, Itorace! what misery
this money has brought upon us!"
No, Ellinor. What misery one devia
tion from the straight line of honor has
brought upon us! Ellinor, dearest, only
beloved, can you forgive the man who has
so truly loved, yet so deeply injured you?"
"Forgive you 1"
She rose from her knee?, and smooth
ing the thick, dark hair from his white
forehead, with tender, pitying hands, look
ed him full in the face.
"Horace," she said, "when, long ago,
you thought I loved you, you read my
heart aright; but the depth and truth of
that love you could never read. Now,
now that I am the wife of another, anoth

you for the loss of it. This confession
has set all rilit. I will be a good wife to

"What, Ellinor. do you think that, did
I not know myself to be dying, I could
have made this confession ? No, you see
me now under the influence of stimulants
which give me a false strength; of excite

even death. To-morrow night, Ellinor,
the doctors tell me, there will no longer

Irew her towards him, and imprinted one
Itiss upon her forehead.
"The first and the last, Ellinor," he
said. "Gool-by ! "
His face changed to a deadlier white
than before, and he fell back, fainting.
The physician, peeping in at the half
open door, beckoned to Ellinor:
"You must leave him at once, my dear
madame,'' he said. "Had I not seen the
dreafully disturbed state of his mind, I
should never have permitted this inter

a fatherly tenderness, looking at her ear

They erected a very modest tomb
over the remains of Horace Margrave, in
the Cemetery ol Pore la Chnine. There
had been some thoughts of conveying his
ashes to lii 3 native country.that they might
rest in the church of Margrave, a little
village in Westmoreland, the chancel of
which church was decorated with a re
cumbjiit statue of Algernon Margrave,
cavalier, who fell at Worcester fight; hut

army and (he church, and a superannu
ated admiral, his great uncle, and, as it
was furthermore discovered that the ac
complished solicitor of Verulam Build
ings, Cray's Inn, had left not a penny be
hind him, the idea was very quickly
abandoned, and the last remains of the
admired Horace were left to decay in the
soil of a foreign grave.
It was never fully known who caused
the simple tablet, which ultimately
adorned his resting-place, to be erected.
It was a plain block of marble; no pom

tues, was thereon cnjr.wcd but; a half-
burned torch, suddenly extinguished,
was sculptured at the bottom of the tab

this design there was merely inscribed
the name and age of the deceased.

VIEWS OF A TEACHER.
As county papers are less under the
control of cliques and party patronage
than city papers, and derive their sup
port more immediately Irom the country
people, they are found to be the readiest
media through which the common peo
pie may give public expression to their
wants or grievances, almost every trade
calling or profession has its grievances
real or imaginary. The learned profes
sions, as they arc called, have theirs
and find the public press a ready medium
through which to uttcf their griefs to the
world. Artisans and mechanics form
combinations to redress their wrongs
and their strikes find sufficient editorial
vindication. The farmers under the name
of "Patrons of Husbandry," find the pub
lie press irrespective of party, subservi
ant to their demands, and in a state o
geueral rivalry to become their organs,
But, there is another class so quiet and
unobtrusive as to be supposed either pe
culiarly favored or so dumb and stupid
and assinine as to be utterly insensible to
their misery; namcly.the class of Common
School Teachers. There is no doubt that
they are altogether too meek for thci
own good, and it is reasonable to sup
pose that Moses, who was the meekest
man in the world, must, long before h
turned his attention to law and tactics
have been a school teacher and tangl
the young idea how to shoot, before he
became the leader ol the armiea of Israel.
Men in high office, and enjoying the pe
cuniary advantages of the school svsle a,
eomctimcs advert to the property and
need of "this poorly paid class," but
very little material interest comes from
their professed sympathy.
The school teachers arc, indeed, an ex
ample of meekness. Ignorant legisla
tures make laws enabling hungry authors
of books to raid on the school fund in
tended only for the payment of teachers,
and no audible complaint is made. Cur
tailments of their respective portion of
the school fund are made for that purpose
and the teachers are coolly sent back to
collect the deficft, if they can, off their
subscribers and patrons one-half of
horn perhaps are either indigent or in
solvent, and bomb-proof against any at
tempt to get a cent out of them, and no
murmur is heard. Arbitrary laws are
made creating what arc called institutes,
which, from the brevity of their sessions,
might be classed among the ephemera
and men dubbed prolessora a title fast
becoming obnoxious to every body but
the owner, arc imported into the county
to conduct them, in whose selection the
teachers have no more voice than so
many mummies, and which they are
compelled to attend and foot the bill of ex
penses on pain of forfeiting their certifica
tes, and they come up as quietly as sheep,
slaughter. And there is no doubt to the
n the world that if the existenctjof that law
ung on the ratification or rejection of
the Common School Teachers of Ky.,they
would quickly vote it into those distant
regions of the nether world, where grav-
tation turns the other way. It would be
strange if the futilitv of those institutes
were not apparent to every reflecting
mind, for how can it be expected that a
fews days attendance at any place of in
struction will enable a person to make
any improvement satisfactory to himself
or visible to others? And I would sav to
those young candidates for schools, who
may be sanguine ol having obtained the
master-key at an institute, that will un
lock with ease, the hidden vaults and
darkest, deepest recesses of learning, like
the king's son who went to college, ex
pecting to find a royal road to geometry,
by which he might avoid the drudgery
of ordinary study, that when the all-day
work of the school room when the so
lution of successive difficult problems in
arithmetic, and the analysis and parsing
of difficult sentences in grammcr lessons
call for the utmost stretch of their knowl
edge, me visionary conceits mat may
now prompt them to cry "eureka," in
mitation of Archimedes, "like night's
swift dragons at the approach of day,
will cut the clouds full fast," and leave
them in. the possession of their senses.
Attempts have been made to force a
uniformity of text-books upon the schools,
and teachers have been threatened by
august county boards of education and
majestic School Commissioners, with the
consequences of noncompliance with
their mandate in other words the for
feiture of their school money. The law
has been proved to be inoperative; teach
ers have neglected it with impunity, and
nobody has been hurt. And I would say
just here, that though I consider Butler's
grammeran honor to the author, I would
deem the rejection of the Elementary
spelling book from the schools and the
introduction of Butler's, an insult to the
shade of Noah Webster. The Elementa
ry spelling book is the best in America.
I shall conclude by saying a few words
on the subject of school examiners. It is
my opinion that those officers should be
decapitated so suddenly as scarcely to
give them time to communicate with
their dearest friends. As it is the busi
ness and duty of a trustee to hire a teach
er lor his district, it ought to be his priv
ilege to exercise his right of choice as to
whom he employed, just as though he
employed a man to do any other kind of
work, but, it is objected, trustees are not
qualified to examine teachers. I contend
that a great many trustees arc qualified
to examine applicants for schools, and
they would do the work just as well and
a great deal cheaper than those appoint
ed by law. If they are not highly educa
ted, they can ascertain how the appli
cant has succeeded 111 lus previous
schools. If the applicant is an entire
stranger, as is often the case, the trustee
would have to guess at his qualifications
just as school examiners do under simi
lar circumstances, though the examiners
might form a more correct opinion with
regard to the extent of his education,
they would be a ignorant as the trustees
with regard to his ability to conduct a
school and impart instructions; an item
fully as important as education. And
there is another fact to be considered,
that school examiners arc by 110 means
perfect themselves, and would be as likely
to f ill if they went before other examining
boxrdt for ccrlfi:ates, as m my ordinary
teachers. The truth is thev oce their ap
pointment more fre'jucntly to facoritism and
p trtiality thm to any obvious superiority in
their qualifications. It. C.

ship. It seems that in the settlement
there was some dispute which resulted in
a quarrel nt the time. The next day Don-
ally, on meeting Peckover, said that he
(Peckover) had called him a liar the day
previous, and pulling out a pistol shot

himself to the authorities and was taken
to the courthouse for trial, which had just

drawing a pistol, shot Donally, killing
him instantly. Ridgely wasal once taken
into custodv. while" two souls appeared

before the bar of God, the murderer to
meet his victim face to face.
The sympathy of all went out to young
Itidgely, who had always borne a charac
ter irreproachable in every respect, being
a member of the church and a constant
attendant on services. He had served
the town of Cynthiana in the capacity of

five or six children, and his death depri

He had been almost a father to ItiJgely,
and when the young man learned of the
death of his sister's husband and his own
benefactor, he did not think of the re-

who, in wronging bis sister, wronged him.
Dr. Donally was an unmarried man.
The trial of Itidgely began Thursday
at Cynthiana, before Judge Perkins,
whose rulings are reported as able and at

ty was experienced in getting jurors, it I
being almost an impossibility to find any
