BY A DIAXA BACHELOR.
Come home my wandering thoughts awhile,
And turn thyselves within
And see how many ways Go* takes,
To bring us to our end.
The Lord hath sent to us again,
By his Almighty hand
And from our side has taken away,
One of our little band.
O S E
One Thursday, in the afternoon,
That sad and mournful day
Four little boys went to the woods,
To gather nuts and play.
It was their intent to fall a tree
It being very late
Poor little souls, they could not see
What was one of their fate.
The boy was chopping on the tree,
When it began to crack
A dry tree leaned against the same,
And instantly slid back.
It fell, and struck him on the head,
Me instantly did fall
The children seeing what was done,
They loudly for help did call.
But when they saw no help was near,
Unto the house theytied
And all crying as they went,
Phileman, he is dead!"
The news unto his parents flew,
Their hearts with grief werefilled
And crying, Oh Lord must it be so,
That my poor child is killed."
They took the sufferer in their arms,
And brought him to his friends
With bitter cries, and streaming eyes,
They met his weeping triends.
He lived from four 'till ten at night
No hand his life could save,
His anxious friends sweeping round,
Could not save him from the grave.
For God did take him to himself,
His unknown power to show
to us louder than words,
To be prepared to go.
He was a lovely little boy,
Not far from ten years old
He was the choice of all his friends,
But now is dead and cold.
A word unto his parents dear
Prepare to meet your son
And children you must be prepared
To go where he has gone.
His sermon preached by Elder Gray,
We laid him in the ground.
Farewell, Phileman, fare you well,
Until the last trump shall sound.
It is the Lord will come and take
The children of his love
Oh may we all then, be prepared
To meet with him above.

what she called the popular ideas of
marriage. "A man expects his wife

After the introductions were accom

missed Bessie. Where was she? She
had a peculiar charm of conversation,
by which she could make herself'if she
choose, equally agreeable to old andour
young, and was always to be relied on
in chance calls. Had she gone out of
the room? No. She sat close by,
listening with perfect well bred at
tention to our discourse. Whenever
Mr. Browning addressed himself te
her, she responded just as any nice,
pleasant young lady would do, but not
at all like my cousin Bessie. The
truth flashed upou me with such quick
ness that I, meek, innocent, blushed
like any rose while Mr. Browning was
making some veery unimpressive re
mark about elm trees and seemed a
little surprised at my* susceptibility.
I regained myself with as little delay
as possible, and answered him. Mean
time, I thought ot what might and
might not be,
It was discovered by my father th&t
Mr. Browning had a great eye forsick
farming,and by my mother that he was
a zealous politician and thus, between
them, he had a general invitation at
our house at all times and seasons, of
which ho availed himself. Agreeable
at first, he continued to improve upon
acqi aiutancc. He did sometime have
a very solemn air. Bessie used to say
he was then sitting in judgment upou
Meanwhile the long .August days,
filled each with sunshine and dying in
purplo mist, melted into each other
and passed away.' ""Many of-their
hours were spent with Mr. Browning.
He was a college friend of Authur El
more's, and. as a consequence
every vacation had brought him home
with Authur for a day or two so they
were old acquaintances. I knew many
of Bessie's admirers: they were still
her fast friends. We always spoke of
them by brief titles ("Will," "Lewis,"
"Buel," etc.) but never, through all
my kuowlcdge of her, had she spoken
of this acquaintance otherwise than
"Mr. Browning." Her manner to
him was pleasantly cordial—precisely
what it would have been to any friend
and cotemporary of her father's,except
that it lacked the reverence which
superior age would have received
from her. For if his opinions differed
from hers, or ever approached, as she
thought, toward the verge of mean
ness of any sort, or displayed a false
taste, the crust of reserve was broken
and her indignation revealed
itself iu varied wit, ridicule, and irony.
But when he revealed a lofty man
liness, keen intellect, or any deep
feeling, Bessie sat calmly listening,
her eyes industriously bent upon her
needle-work, with which she fortified
herself and sometimes she slightly
averted her face, as if 6he disturbed
her self-control. In a word, while in
his presence she completely transform
ed herself, and was, to all intents and
purposes, another person, and not my
great-hearted Bessie. I was
thoroughly vexed at her. But remon
strances would have been useless, if I
possessed the daring to attempt it.
For, open as the day about everything
else, and peculiarly attractive to those
she loved and trusted in her unreserv
ed and thrilling revelation of herself,
ou this subject I could easier scale
the Andes than have uttered a word.
Indeed she so perfectly assumed that
there was no "subject she talked ot
him, when abeent, so precisely as if he
were a middle-aged friend of her fath
er's, that I was often completely baf
fled but then the next interview con
mc in my first opinion.
I passed many unhappy hours that
summer in thinking of her. For, not
withstanding her gayly-careless air
whenever he was talked of or present,
there were times, and- they increased
in number and in anguish,- when she
was very wretehed. She used often to
sit at the end of the piano, while 1 in
the long summer twilight, would play,
at her decree, some of those bits of
Beethoven which have in their deep
and mazy wanderings such
strong, passionate life and longing,
and for the heart disquieted and aching
such arrows of sympathy and despair -r
and when? I had ended, her face show
I had closely watclitd Browning
from beginning, and was at length
convinced, much against my will,
that he did not love her, though I
was sure she interested him. but mere
ly because he was a student of human
nature. When I was reluctantly
obliged to confess to myself that she
was indifferent to him I felt equally
crushed and hopeless, as if had
glanced at the veritable book of fate.
Indeed, I began to wish that Mr,
Browning's business, whatever it was,
be speedily accomplished. My
woman's heart was sorely greived for
Bessie, and my fancy began to be
tilled, with visions of a trip to the
Niagara, Newport, Nahant-any where

And yet I knew that she was one of

About half a mile behind our house
was an old saw-mill. It stood in a
wild glen, and the little mill-pond
behind it, edged with small trees and
shrubs of various kinds, which made a
green mosaic on its placid face, was
favorite resort. It was in the
early September that, by mutual thou't
hardly spoken consent, we found our
selves in our accustomed seat. Bessie
was in one of her bitter despairing
moods. An uncle of mine, who had
been for long years a missionary in a
distant country, had left us this morn
ing. He was on a brief visit to the
land of his youth, to get fresh vigor
for himself and new teachers for his
work. Wo had been speaking of him.
"He cannot but be happy," said Bes
sie, "whatever he may lack, for he
knows he is constantly creating hap
piness. But what kind of a life do I
lead? Who is the better for it? Oh,
I'm sick of myself." She was silent
for a moment, and then turned to
with a sad smile: "It wouldn't be a
proper reason for going on a mission
though, would it, because one was
of one's self?" The sorrow deep
need in her face, and she went ou:—
"Sometimes I say I have made no
growth these years—fool—from a lit
tle child that 'lelt its life in every limb,'
I'm come to have a sorrow grow out
of every joy—that's progress, I'm
thinking!" She hid her face in her
hands, and her sobs shook her. It
was the rarest thing in the world for
her to weep, and when she did the
passion seemed to rend and tear its
way like a destroying flood. I sat
silent and sad, knowing that I could
not console, and that "sair grief
maun have its- will." I looked up and
saw Jane, the servant-girl approach
"Miss Anne, your mother wants you
in the house for a little."
"I'll be back soon, Bessie," said I,
and ran home. Various causes com
bined to detain me, and it was full
three quarters of an hour before I
again came in sight of the mill. And
what a spectacle saluted my infallible,
philosophising eyos! My cousin Bessie
with a face like a dewy rose-bush in
bloom at sunrise, both her hands in
the manly clasp of Henry Browning!
I stand bewildered. Mr. Browning,
whose fine eyes area little dimmed',
turns to me and says:
"My dear friend let me introduce to
you—my dearest friend on earth."
Bessie, suddenly restored to her
faculties, with low bowing head, says:
"I also introduce mine to you."
I still stand stupefied. My ownMajesty,
clear, critical Judgement and the
results thereof, are fast drifting down
the tide, and my tongue refuses to
"utter the thoughts that arise in me."
"But how—why-what," at last in
homely Saxon, why in the world did
you seem so cool and indifferent all the
time? I don't like that in you" said I,
waxing warm (Bessie, meanwhile, the
transformed, mildly imploring me with
her eye) "you came to spy out the
land and it is unworthy of you."
Mr. Browning linked one arm into
mine, put the other lightly over the
shoulder of his Bessie, and we turned
"My triend Anne." said he in his
deep voice. "Bessie and I have at
least one point in common—a wicked
pride. Never, through all the days of
our acquaintance, have I dreamed that
she cared for me. I have lived in
steadily-growing sorrow in that belief.
Until just now, seeing her in tears, my
sympathy stifled my pride, and love
spake. That first 'dear Bessie' con
We walked on in silence.. As we
drew near the house I said, "And shall
yon go on the mission, Bessie?"
She smiled into his eyes. "Oh yes,in
I have already started."
I have never recovered that keen
ness of observation and unfailing
judgment for which I previously was so
remarkable. I am afraid I never shall.
And years of wedded life have not
shaken Bessie's love and faith in Mr.n
Henry Browning, but rather have

E EMANCIPATION O E RUS
We have now before us the text of
the manifesto of the Czar of Russia an
nouncing to his subjects the emancipa
tion of the serfs. His Majesty tells
them that on ascending the throne he
resolved in all sincerity to acquire the
affections of his subjects of every rank
and condition "from the warrior who
nobly carries arms for the defence of
his country, to the humble artisan en
gaged in works of industry from the
functionary who pursues the career of
the highest employment of the Slate,
to the laborer whose plow furrows the
fields." His Majesty proceeds to glance
at the patriarchal relations which have
hitherto existed between the peasants
and their proprietors, and to show that,
as simplicity of manners has disap
peared, the condition of the serfs has
been unfavorably affected. He was
convinced, therefore, that a great ame
lioration of their lot was a mission to
which he was called by Divine Provi
dence. The steps which have been
taken in consulting the nobility, in
forming the committees,: and in consid
ering the various propositions, are
successfully detailed and the mode of
emancipation ultimately agreed to is
described at length. The co-operation
of the nobility is warmly spoken of in
the manifesto. Hussia," says his
will never forget that the
noblessc,moved solely by their respect
for the dignity of man and by the love
of their neighbor, have spontaneously
renounced* the rights which the serf
dom now abolished had given them,
and have laid the foundations of anew
future for the peasants." They are
then called upon to carry out faithfully
and conscientiously the regulations
which have been deemed fittest for tho
great end iu view.
The manifesto was read in all the
churches ot St. Petersburgh and Mos
cow on Sunday, the 5th tilt., and was
followed by solemn prayers for the
preservation of the health and the pro
longation of the life of the Emperor.
The manifesto and tho accompanying
regulations are being sent as rapidly
as possible to all the chiefs of depart
ments, proprietors of land, and com*
muues of peasants thro'out the Empire.
