"01 let mo court Lethean streams,
Tho sorrowing sense to steep,
And drink oblivion of the themes
On which I cannot weep."
In that season 6f fife, when tho heart's
enthusiasm gives fervor tO( all its pflijctions
first commenced tjialiinfortunatc attachment
between Augustus and Amelia. The geni
us and accomplishments of Augustus were
the themes of every tongue. Hp possess
ed a proud aspiring soul he anticipated,
with sanguine confidence, the time when
his talents and industry would be an honor
to himself, and service to those around him.
Ilis own Amelia, with a heart that could so
well appreciate his excellencies, found a
proud enjoyment in those plaudits so often
associated with his name, and happiness in
those warm aft'uctlons which her own
charms had created. O! there was not one
thorn among the roses of lieir own Eden
there was. not one cloud in the pure skies
that illumined its bowers there were no
sounds but those told of happiness, in cheer-
ing wuispers to me neart. If Amelia s
voice was heard in song, the strain was of
tho most joyous melody her liarp had not
one sound of sadness in its varied notes
and lightest in tho dance were her own
footsteps, ariiorig its graceful evolutions.
Thus passed those days away, till Augus
tus, m the tumults of the world, exchanged
the dreams of those romantic hours, for tho
cold realities of life; and cold they were to
one so enthusiastic: rugged indeed to one
so ambitious, were those steps towards the
tempieof lame, over which not even genujs
could give wings to bear him but step by
step his wearied feet must tread, till even
the hope which carried him along seemed
to sicken with delay.
Deep in his susceptible heart were the
stings of disappointed ambition. In those
woods which SUrfbund the beautiful village
where so many of his days had been pass
ed whero breathed the murmurings of his
discontent and even those haunts which
endeared this adopted home, were sought,
not at once, to indulge in dreams of love
and hope bin to hide, amid their shades
the dark despondence of his spirit.
Amelia, too, whose presence was once so
replete with bright associations, served but
to increase his gloom vain was all the
gaiety with which she hoped to dissipate
his care. If in brighter hours, Augustus
was beloved with the fervor of her feeling
nature; he was now, in his moments of
gloom, cherished in hei heart with an af
fection yet more impassioned. But why
(thought she) the gathering shades upon his
brow. Can he not be happy without the
applause of a multitude? Can he not leave
the scene where his hopes have failed and
seek in love and friendship, alone, a joy
worth all ambition could have promised?
Amelia was happy still for Augustus was
to her as in her best days; and in losing the
fickle favors of the world, she knew he had
not lost that which ought to have secured
them. But with" all the splendor of talepts.
Augustus was deficient in firmness of mind
and independence of spirit. His time was
wasted in gloomy indolence,' till he at length
sought in intemperance a fancied oblivion
of his ills, Tho companions of his virtuous
days forsook him his friends, while they
mourned his degeneracy, left in the haunts
of dissipation one who might command tho
respect a,nd admiration of all.'
But Amelia, with woman's constancy,
was faithful still. Manv were the efforts of
her family to lead those affections from an
object no longer worthy her regard but
Augustus, scorned and forsaken, found one,
at least, whoso look would not reproach.
whoso tongue would never censure.
For him the music of her harp was still
awakened but at times a melancholy tone
would steal into those strains meant for
gaity alone that eye, through its glanco
wero all his own, was fast losing the luster
t i.i.ii .
oi nsnue unu mat ciiook, wnero tne roso
once bloomed so brightly, had not now ono
trace of its crimson tinge. Each day as it I
passed, brought deepor melancholy to tho'
heart of Augustus and faintei with ovcry
morning's dawn, beamed the eye of the un
fortunate Amelia till, at last, it was shroud-

all are nothing now (thought he) he dare
hot think upon the past he would not
dwell upon the future his constitution ex
hausted by excess, and wasted by the de
sponding melancholy which he so long had
.cherished, warned him of his approaching
end. He awaited it with impatient despair
and Augustus, too, found an early grave
the victim of disappointed ambition and
of blighted affection;
