A German Superstition.
BY J. BRIANT.
(It is prevalent notion ill parts of Germany,
that excessive grief on the part of the survivors af
fects tho repore or the tinppiness ofihe deceased.
In Bechesteiu's Murchenbiich, is a ttorr founded
on the same supposition.) ClutmlKt't I'.l. Jour.
The morning tlirongh the lattice fell,
The morning' glimmer slowly;
It lit a little dying face.
With light both cilm and holy.
Then as a clound its shadow gray
Just cast, ye scarce knew whether
The child' last inile, or sunn ray,
Went first, or both together.
The small gray cloud wasswift in flight,
Not so a mother' sorrow;
Sl e knew no ray iioramile would light
Her dead child's f.iue to-morrow .
They took little gentle Annie away;
To sun-brii;lit lea they bore her;
For they knew where the lambs came out to play
The diisies would cluster o'er her:
Yet empty stood one little chair
Fur months iu thut lonely dwel'Mi;,
And a mother wild looked watching there,
With tear forever welling.
At last , like a w jll-kno'.vn strip, lht;re s eined
A sound liy the lattice lonely,
One night when braided in mist there gleamed
The belt of Orion only;
The door was a j ir; then soft and fi!r,
'Neath the purple Nwhl ubove her,
Sluiuc Annie's eyes, ami her golden hi'r.
And the Millie that in.ide alt to love her.
With a step so still she glided in
Willi n V' i,:e so aweeily broken:
H) mother, dear mother, such gri'f is sin;
Behold, of thy tours, the token!'
Phe looked : 'twas a goblet of crys'al glass,
In her child's pure hand 'twas glowing:
'O inutfTer, 'tis filled wilh thy tears; alas,
One drop: il were ever flowing.
'One drop! then no real iu the grave were mine,
No joy where my spirit would haslen;
For the ioi we servo loves the heart divine.
That blesses tin- griefs that chu-sten!1
It vanished; then sofily nnd S'.vecliy brgbt,
Came a strain as from angels given;
And he saw, where a star had ediut its trnckwny
Little Auuiu liitd gone to ha'en!
The following stanzas are from a recent
poem c.f Longfellow's entitled
' I'liuntoms," mid published in Putnam for
The spirit world around this world of sense
Floats lilt-.' nil atmosphere, and everywhere.
WHf!Hlliroiie.h tin se earthly niistsand vapors dense
A vitul breath of more ethereal air.
Our little lives are k 'pt in equipoise
By opp isiio attractions and desires:
The struggle of the iuslinct that enjoys,
And the mure noble instinct that aspires.
The perturbation?, the perpetual jir
Of earthly waul and aspirations high,
C'enie from the inflii-nce of liiut unseen alar
That undiscovered pluiiet in our ky .
And sb the moon, from some dark gate of cloud,
Throw o'er the aea a Hunting bridge of light,
Across whose trembling planks our fancies crowd,
Into the realm of myrt'Ty and night;
So from the world of spirit there descend
A bridge of light, connecting it witii this,
O'er whose uusleady tloor, thut sways and bcmls,
Wander our thought above a dark abysa.
Sketches of Border Life.
James Duncan, His Family and the Indians.
Il requires no small degreo of courage lo
face an enemy in open n glit when the blood
is excited by llie stirring events and martial
music of a trained army ; but it requires a
higher endowment of this quality of mind to
m el a deadly to -, perhaps n secret ambush,
or, at leasl, ever watchful for, and ready to
tn lie, any unilerlianjeil or cunning a Ivdiuage
believing essentially in tbu policy of "all is fair
i i war," particularly iu thai part which takes
an opponent at unawares ami iiilltcls the fatal
blow with ail unseen hand; an J still a higher
and more beif-telying courage is necessary to
prompt an individual lo walii up deliberately
into the midst of bis enemies, when he knows
not but that the moment lie enters the circle
where the tomahawk lays idle, burnished and
bloodless, only o long as savage passion are
kept in check, and that a misstep or an uu
fortunate look or word will cause the bright
steel to leap from its sheath and be dyed iu
bis life's blood.
' An incident of this Inst kind occurred
shortly after the close of the Indian wars
of the West iu 1704, and during the peace
wiucn loueweu trayues victory, as lot
James Duncan, n pioneer of tho true order.
had been noticed for bis hospitality to tho red
men, ana as a guide ana an inlormer, had on
several occasions, led to the defeat of the
savages an to thwarting them, in tho execu
lion of several of ihcir deep laid plots. On
one occasion, he was known to have killed
llie son and brother of a chief, nnd on others
lo have slain many noble braves. These
thtiv.'S together with the fact that ho bad per
.-onallt' insult da band of Wyandolts led by
a young chief of high blood and measureless
prule, made htm me most oonoxtous ot all
persons to the vindictive onto ul the Indians,
which ho knew to be sleepless and unquen
citable except in the blood of its victim.
Besides, be knew that the young chief, whose
nngcr was aroused against him, bad sworn to
be revenged, nnd to wash out the affront he
had received iu the heart's blood of the offen
der. After the treaty of peace baj been signed,
Duncan Icnrnvil ihnt nn iiltfinjit wns to he
mndij on liin life so som n tlio army under
Wayne should ha disbanded nnd thai lio wns
to bo slain secretly, so ns, il' rmgsibic, not lo
let it be known who were iiis murderers.
Knowing the disposition of iU adversaries nnd
lliattliey were mil cas'ly turned from n pur
pose, nnd would leave no ('(Torts unlrind to
bring about his destruction, lie deemed it best
(o avoid them, ns it was not bis wish lo revive
hostilities; so be removed loa distant part of
the territory, nnd enja-'eJ in the the pursuit
of civilized life.
l?eing n kind of gnn'mitli, lie opened a shop
for repairing the guns and locks of the settlers
and this business, together with firming nnd
bunting, among nil of which bis lime was divi
ded, enabled him to live quite comfortably
among his neighbors. It so fell out, however
that llie place became two thickly inhabited
to suit bis particular taste, nnd be removed to
another point, several miles from any inhab
itation. In bis new locnlion lie followed the same
pursuits, nn rather singular to the apprehen
sion of those used to modern customs and laws
of trade, his.out of lho way place of business
did not decrease his custom. The old settlsrs
and hunt'-rs preferred to patronize one oflheir
own number; and a few miles walk through
the forest was just lo their taste, ns it onnmVd
them to hunt and get their work dono all in
the same jaunt.
I' chanced one day, that hu had a call from
an Indian, whose gun needed some repairing.
While he was doing the work, he noticed that
the Indian cast in any side glances nt him and
was parliculor in his observation of the prem
ises; it was rather singular that ho sdould do
so, Duncan thought, but as it had now been
a number of yeais since peace was eslablish-
he hail almost forgotten h;s ol I enemies.
and did not imagine there was any danger of
tneir threat b ing executed; so the matter
onded, and the circumstance passed from bis
thoughts by the next day.
About a week from th s time, while he was
away to the settlements on some business,
Mrs. Duncan was a little surprised to receive
a call from a couple of Indians, not because
this was a rare occurrence, but from the fact
that her visitors were entire strangers to her
and apparently, lo that pin t of the country.
In a lew minutes another, and then another
and another dropped in, as if by accident, yet
with a manifest understanding among them
selves, until the number present readied m
or a dozen.
Mrs. D. felt uneasy, not so much because of
the presence of Indians, (for she had long
been accustomed lo seeing lliom almost daily
at her husband's shop to get work done,) but
thai there was a kind of difguised concert nbou
their movement, wlncli to Her mmd, was a
sure indication there wnssomethin more than
usual on foot.
All at once she remembered the threat
made against her husband years before and
icing well aware ol the tenacity ot an Indians
memory,' sho at once connected the two the
threat and the present visit together. Her
feelings, when the conviction that this surmise
was ihii true solution of the mystery lived It-
seli in her mind, may b better imagined than
How to get word In her husband without
alar ming the enemy for thnl the wkhb ene
mies she had now no doubts, so intuitively
overwhelming was the conviction of her mind
on the subject or exciting their wary suspic
ions, was the question she labored to solve.
1 here was out one possible method of so doing
ind with It the probabilities of failure were
double those of success. .This wus to send her
only son, n boy of fourteen, lo meet his fath
er, and give him warning. If she could
only do this privately, so as to be unseen
y the ever watchful foe, she had som
hope of its success. After wailing lor hours
in nn agony of suspense, not knowing but
Mr. Duncan might return at any moment, the
coveted opportunity occurred. Calling her
son to her side, while the Indians were out
hold ng n consultation among themselves she
hastily told him where to go and what to say
to his father, directing him to proceed in such
i manner ns lo leducu the belief in llie minds
of tne Indians, that he was going nfter the
The ruse Bueceded. The enemy inlerogn-
led the boy ns to whether lie was going, and
received as a reply that llieir cow had gone
oil (which was the fact) and wished to find
her, nnd in turn enquired of them if they had
seen her, giving the marks by which she
could bo distinguished from other cows. To
this Mrs. Dune in listened with breathless
interest, her ear at an apelure in the door and
her heart n!mo-t atilled in its pulsations wit b
alarm: but when she saw how admirably the
boy acted his part, and how much above his
years was the discretion be manifested, a load
seemed to bo lifted from her bosom, nnd she
m n'.a'ly offered up a fervent prayer of thank
fulness. The son met his f ilber some two nnd a half
or three miles from home, nnd told him all.
Mr. Duncan was a kind and affectionate hus
band and father and ho paused for several
minutes and rellocted as to what ho should
and ought to do. Thai the Indians ment no
good was certain fiom their manner of action ;
but would bis family be safe if left at their
mercy without a protector? He feared not
Should he then, go back lo the settlement
and obtain aid ? No; however well iik might
be convinc d of tho evil designs of tl Indi
ans, il might be a difficult matter to convince
others of tho fact; and lo be called a c iward
or havo others llvnk ho was actua'ed by fear,
was more than bis back-woods nature could
stand ; to he finally resolved to proceed, resol
ving to stand by bis family nt ull buzzards.
Accordingly bo and his son proceeded cau
tiously towards home w here they arrived in
safely about sun down. . No Indians were
about; but this was hardly a matter of con
gratulation, ns it was his opinion they had
withdrawn to make a night attack or to await
his return in the morning, Mrs. D. having giv
en them no definite information ns to his
wherabouts or lire time at which he would be
That night there w si no sleep to the eyes
of tho parents. In sol tudo and darkness

barred duots and wiudows, ant) every sense
thai could be made available on the nlert, lo
catch the lirst sound or intimation of diinpjrr.
Il was a long, weary nilit, and many n
lime during iu slow passigu were the beads
of the watchers ma le to pause at some dis
tant or approaching noise, iu expectation of
impwixiin danger, and ihen to lenp quickly
with, nn it were, an unfettered molion, as die
cause of fear subsided or was explained.
liut moi'iiiiiLr ill last dawned, and its first
, siruuks of grey light sent n thrill of joy ihroiigb
the bosoms f the watchful pair. Darkness
ii a promoter of fear, and any real or imagi
nary danger is augmented a hundred- fold by
its magnifying powers.
As had been expected, ilia Indians return
ed in the morning, nad in their leader, Duncan
recognized the young chief ho had insulted,
and whoso brother he bad slain in battle.
Had he previously entertained n doubt ns to
the object of their visit, that douht was now
removed they were lifter revenge!
What could he do? There be wns in the
midst of his family ; nnd il wns far from his
wish to be slain in the presence of bis beloved
ones, if slain lie must be. In times of immi
nent danger, if the mind is not confused,
though l is rapid nnd clear, more so than in
a condition of ordinary calmness; so it was
with Duncan. Like linghlning, thought rush
ed through bis mind, and with more of intui
tion than reason, but with the occurrence of
both, be at once concluded that it was best
to put on a calm exterior and adopt a cordial
manner in the reception of his unwelcome
guests, Accordingly be met them with a
smile, and acted to wards them as though they
were utter strangers, yet the best of unknown
friends enquired if any of their guns need
ed repaying took ihcnt in and gave them an
excellent In eakfast, and treated lliem in eve

remained several hours; examined his tools,

to, seeming lo take great interest in making

cheerfulness, denning them as he did so. In

gave them the best dinner bis store of pro
visions could produce.
Ail this lime he was acting a part, nnd ov
ery moment was dreading the fall of the blow
lie was attempting to ward off and prevent.
He was now about nt his wit's end, and was
revolving in his mind w hat he could next do
lo amuse the savages, when the chief broke
in upon his half-matured plans by abruptly
' Does white brother know the red men that
have cat salt at, his table ?"
"Many red brethren come to see me nnd
to get llieir rilles repaired, but 1 cannot tell
who they arc. Red men and white men are
friends now, and I should be sorry to see
Uk ra become cnimias."
"While brother no know Indian; il is well;
white brother is kind now; but does white
brother know that be killed the son of the
chief of the Wyandots, and that before him is
the brother of the slain warrior?"
''Is il possible that this is the son of the
great chief? Well let us now be friends; the
mighty young chief of the Wyandots knows
that bulk is lly many ways in battle, ntvl tha'
one may bit a chief and another a brave, and
many bit nothing but the trees and the earth.
Wu cannot tell w ho we kill w hen we are on
the war path."
"White brother speaks truly: in the thick
battle a hundred bullets fly among our foes
and ooly a few cnemi s fall white brother no
tell thai his bullet kill the son of a chief; but
does while brother remember when he called
llie son of the great chief of the Wyandots a
DO J .'
Duncan bad put on a bold face from the
commencement of the conversation, and un
lii this turn was given to it, bad hoped for llie
besl; but now he could not be mistaken; the
old g u Ige was to be brought up, and he felt
sure he could see a dark scrowl, pass over the
features of the speaker as he alluded to the
ignominy he had suffered nt bis hands. Hut
il was no time lo quail now, nnd so putting on
an nil for the occasion, ho replied in a pleas
ant manner, thoiiuh his heirt trembled the

"I have not entirely forgotten that of which
the young chief speaks: but the chief knows
that we do many things when the blood is hot
wlncli we would not uo it calm nnd cool.
The brave chief of the Wyandots knows that
it is mi a i to be cowardly, and that no war
rior should bo like a squaw, and keep his
tongue from saying brave words because he
was afraid. And does not the young chief of
the mighty Wyandots remember that his
white brother had cause to say many words?''
"White brother brave; Indian no lute brave

It is hardly necessary to say with what
gladness Duncan grasped the extended hand
and reciprocated tho "how do," which was the
Indian's term of frien s'it.
After this tho young cheif was ever bis
waim fiiend, and brought him much work to
do, and their intercourse wns mutually agree

two terrible days, that horrible night, and es

The Love of Home.
It is only ahnllow-minded pretenders who
cither maks distinguished origin A matter of
personal merit, or obscure origin a matter of
person d reproncb. Taunt nnd sending nt ihc
humble condition of cnily life affect nobody
in this country but tho'O who are fool sh
enough to indulge in them, nnd they are gen
erally sufficiently punished by the publish ed
rebuke. A man who is not ashamed of him
self need not be ashamed of his early condi
lior. It did not happen to mo to be born in a
log-cibin, but my elder brothers nnd sisters
were born in n log-cabin, raised among the
snow-drifts of New Hampshire nt a period 10
early that when the smoke first rose from its
rude chimney, and curled over the froxen hill,
tin re wns no similar ovidence of a white raaa's
habitation between it and the settlements on
the river of Canada. Its remains still exist;
I make it an annual visit. I carry my chil
dren to it to teach them tho hardships endur
ed by the geneiation gone before them. I
love to dwell on the tender recollections, the
kindred li s, the early affections, and the nar
rations nnd incidents which mingle with all I
know of this primitive family abode. I weep
to think that none of those who inhabited it
are now among tho living; nnd if ever I fail
in affectionate veneration for him who raised
it, and defended it against savage violence nnd
destruction, cherished all tho domestic vir
tues beneath bis roof, nnd through ihe Cre and
blood of seven year's revolutionary war, shrank
from no toil, no sacrifice, lo serve his country
and to raise his children lo a better condition
thnn his own, may my name and tho name of
my posterity be blotted forever from the mem

The rest of the Sabbath is necessary, sfter
the engagement of the week, ns isjthe night's
rest after the work of tho day. To the one
wo rro instinctively, forced by fatigue. Il is
well if we observe the other, impelled by mor
al considerations, before suffering the penally
attached lo its violation, of which no instinct
gives us warning. After six days of labor
our strained muscles need a season to renew
llieir elasticity our iriitablo nervns to recov
er their moral state our fretted spirits to re
sume their equanimi y. A simple change of
necessary labor does a great deal; the entire
cessation of all thai is unnecessary docs still
more. The fitting devotional exercises of the
day are calming and soothing, nnd productive
of the healthy state of mind with which it is
desirable to enter upon the duties of tho suc
ceeding days. The influence of tho Sabbath
on the week's tumultuous cares is like oil
p Hired on a stormy sea. Stretched out over
the hurrying crowd of daily engagements,
like the rod of the Prophet over tba lied Sea
it .jl'es tho waves up on cither side, and
we pass through them dry shod.

Inundation of the Nile.
Recent news from Egypt stale that tho Nil
has this year risen higher than it has during
the last twenty years. Almost the entire
valley or Lgvpt is one sheet of water, nnd
travelers proceed to the pyramids in boats, nn
excursion which, in ordinary times, occupies a
three hours' lide from Ghiz b, tho nearest
po'nt on tho river. The dam ige dono lo the
crops, by this excess of water, is very great,
and very extensive trucls of land sown with
Indian corn aro covered wilh from t!ir e to
live feel of water, and tho plants aro conse
quently destroyed. Tho villages and towns
are reduced to islands, anil arc only saved by
the inhabitants raising embankments all round
which they watch day and night with the
greatest anxiety. Tho Fellahs will severely
feel ihu loss of their crops of Indian corn, as
it forms their principal article of food during
