MAY 21, l33.
Thi sweet little poem is from the pen of Aline
Carey. Il i one of those gems, which we occas
ionally find straying in the character of wails on
the (treat sea of periodical literature: M'mUily
Yesternight how long it seems!
Met 1 in the land of dreams,
One that loved me long ago
Better it had not been so.
No, we met not as of old
1 was planting in the mould
Of his grave some flower to he,
When ho came and talked to mo.
White his forehead wns, and fair,
With such crowns a angels wear,
And his voice but 1 alone
Ever heard so sweet a tone!
All 1 priied but yesterday
In the distance lessening lay,
Like some golden cloud afar,
Fallen and faded tike a star.
Hushed the chamber ie, he said,
Hushed and dark where we muni wed,
But our bridal home is bright
Wilt thou go with me to-night?
Answering then, f sadly said,
1 am living, thuu art dead,
Darkness rest betwixt us twain.
Who shall make the pathway plain?
Ah! thou lovest not, he cried,
Klse to thee 1 had not died;
Klse all other hope would be
As a rain-drop to the sea.
Further, dimmer, earth withdrew,
Lower, softer bent the blue,
And, like bnltblesin the wine,
Bleul ihe whispers, I am thine.
Angels, saw I, to their bowers
Bearing home the sheaves of flowers,
And could hear their anthems swell ,
Heaping in the asphodel.
O'er my head a wiM-bird flew,
Slinking in my face the dew:
Underneath u woodland tree,
I, my love, had dreamed of thee.
Hire is Barry Corhwali.' "Petition to Time:"
is il not a sweet prayer?
Touch us gently. Time!
Let us glide adown thy stream
Gently us we sometimes glide
Through a quiet dream!
Humble voyagers are we,
Husband, wile, and children three
(One is lost an angel fled
To Ihe mure overhead:)
Touch us gently, Time!
We've not proud nor soaring wings:
Our ambition, our content,
Lies in simple things.
Humble voyagers are we.
O'er Life's dim unsounded sea,
decking only some calm clime
Touch us genlly. gen lie Time!
before llio Voting Men's Library Asso
ciation, Hi Augusta, Georgia, thus sketches
llie marring scene :
"I have drawn for you many pictures of
death; let mo sUelcb lor you a brief, but
bright scene of beautiful life It is the mar
riage altar. A lowly feninlo, chilhed in all
the freshness of youth and surpassing beauty,
leans upon the arm of him to whom she has
just plighted her faith; to whom she has just
given up hcrsell lurever. Look 111 her eyes,
ye gloomy philosophers, and tell me if you
dare, that there is no happiness on earth.
"See the trusting, the heroic devotion which
impells her to leave country, parents, for n
comparative stranp-er. Khe hasluunched her
frail baik upon a wide and stormy sen; she
has handed over her happiness and doom for
this world, to another's keeping; but she has
done it fearlessly, for love whispers to her
that her chosen guardian and protector bears
a manly and a noblo heart. Oh, wo to him
that forgets his oulh and his manhood!
"Her dark wing shall the raven flap,
O'er the false hearted.
His warm blood the wolf shall lap,
Ere life be parted.
Shame and dishonor sit,
On his grave ever;
Blessing shall hallow it,
Never! Oh, never!"
"We have nil read the story of the husband
who, in a moment of hasty wrath, said to hci
who had but a few months before united her
fate to his, 'If you are not satisfied with my
conduct, go, return toyourfiiendannd toyoui
happiness,' 'And will you give me back that
which I brought to you ?' asked the dispairing
wife. 'Yes,' he replied, 'all your wealth shall
go with you; I covet it not.' 'Alus!' she ans
wered, I' thought not of my wealth I spoke
of my devoted love ; can you give these back
to me? 'No!' said the man, aa he flung him
self at her feet 'No ! I cannot restore these,
but I will do more I will keep them unsul
lied and untainted ; I will cherish them
through my life, and in my death; and never
again will I forget that 1 have sworn to pro
tect and cherish her who gave up to me nil
she held most dear.'
"Did I not tell you there was poetry in a
woman's look a woman's word ? See it here!
the mild, the gentle reproof of love, w inning
back from its harshness and rudeness, the
stern and unyielding temper of an angry man.
Ah! if creations fairer sex on'y knew their
strongest weapons, how mnny of wedlock's
fiercest battles would be unfouglit; how much
of unhnppiness and coldness would be avoided.
Truth Read It. The following; truthful
sentiments we clip from the New York Led
ge, and commend them to the careful perusal
or the reader: "lie who by Ins conduct, mokes
friends on one hand, and bitter enemies on
the other, gives evidence that there is some
thing of the bold, upright man in his disposi
tion, while the chickenharted, imbesile man
is making neither friends no foe. Therefore,
we say to all, but more particularly the young
men,' whatever you do, do it earnestly, zeal
ously, fearlessly. Next to being upright and
fuilhful in tho performance of your duty, be
decided, nnd then you will make either friends
or foes worth having we say worth having
lor there are some people in the world that
are worth more to have for enemies than for
Men scanning tho surface count the wicked
hnppy ; they tee not iho frightful dreams thai
crowd a bad roau'e pillow.

Experience in Improving Native Sheep.
Messiis. Batehau & Harris: - When 1
removtd to this country and commenced
clearing up the farm on which I now reside,
in 1810, I brought a small flock of sheep
with me; the place was new nnd mostly woods,
and the sheep for a number of years ranged
principally in the woods; but they did well,
and my llojk increased finely. I procured the
best buck I could obtain for ike purpose of
improving the quality of lh wool, for ray
small (lock were of the small, thin wooled, na
ked bellied kind I continued this course and
and did not change my flock for 25 years. I
found that the quality of my wool was con
siderably improved and the quantity nearly
double. Still it was very uneaven some fine
and some course, and heavy. I csme to tbo
conclusion thnt I could not succeed in this
way in getting n flock of fine wooled sheep,
and concluded I would sell out and start a
new; which I did, I think in 1846. I then
b juglit a few ewe from a flock wh'ok bad
been raised from selected ewes, selected by
a m m of discriminating judgement, for Ihe
purpose of raising a floik for profits; they
were hardy, thick wooled and even, with no
long, course wool on the thighs, and of me
dium fineness, rather short legged, round and
remarkably heavy for their appearance, with
sufficient gum to give them rather a black
appearance. I purchased ten ewes from that
flock, and thin procured the best back that
eould be found answering the same general
description, excepting somewhnt finer wooled.
Lnst year I sheared 24 (my son hat ing ta
ken pmt of them to another farm) -the a
mount of well washed wool was 105 pounds.
1 carried ten fleeces to the factory to be worked
into cloth which weighed 28 pounds: and 14
fleeces I gold, which weighed 08 pounds, at
4 4 t ents per pound, Amounting to (29,02, or
$J,14 per each fleeco.
I have taken no extra care of my sheep.
Last winter with all its scarcity, they were
kept in an open field without any shelter. A
small quantity of grain was gives them dailv
about two quarts corn or cob meal. My full
grown wentkers sheared Bix pounds, and ewes
five pounds. Ten of the 24 were yearlings.
From the littlu experience thnt I have had in
Ihe sheep buisness, I am confident that farm
ers, with proper attention, may in few years
succeed in obtaining a flock of shoep from their
own raising, thai cannot be much improved
