THE SONG OF LIFE.
BY ELLA CAROL.
' There are awellinsf montr the anrgca,
Of the orean tide of life
Strains of wild, and thrilling mnsfo
He.rd 'midst pauses of the strife:
And those deep-toned ocean murmurs, .
Like the wonis of lofly tone .
Teach the wearr heart that listen
How to "sutler and be strong."
When the first wild ware of sorrow.
Sweeps across the soul of youth
Wrecking erery cherished idol
Leaving nanirht but Ood and troth; r
Thn, the spirit half despairing.
Hears the mairtc nf this song;
And within his heart awakens,
Strength to "suffer and be atrong-.
- Or, in bitter years, when wearr,
Of life's changing good and ill:
Weary of the aea's fierce raping
Of the waves, so seldom still;
Be bas thrown aside the eoniat
Listlesa yielded to the storm
Knowing not -nor even caring
Where his bark by winds are borne;
Then these tones like elfin mnsic,
Wear their numbers into worda
Pleading with the fainting spirit.
Till the soul's proud depths are stirred. '.
"See," they whisper, "all around thee
"' Other barks are froing down
Aecer whiie the life remaineth.
Cease to tuffer and be strong.

An Original Tale.
Written for the Fremont Journal.
TWO WILLIES; OR, THE MISTAKEN LOVERS
BY LILLY LARKSPUR.
"Well, cousin Effie,! amastoniKhed, said Irene Nyms.
she entered her cousin's room one bright morning. "I
astonished that you shonM have fallen in love. I had
giren up in despair, and had about came to the conclusion
that rou were different from the rest of the human race,
and that love would never find a place in your bosom
"Why, Irene, I declare, what Is the matter with yon?
What reason have you to believe that I em in love?"
Ohl you need not try to keep any thing from me, re
plied Irene, 'I will certainly find out all your secrets. I
suppose von fancied that I never would know of your
lovely 'moonlight walk, you took last night from the con
cert with Willie. .
Effie blushed deeply as she heard his name pronounced
as most girls are apt to do under such circumstances
did not reply.
Perhaps, before we proceed farther, it would be well
give our readers a little description of the characters of
Effie May was the only daughter of a wealthy merchant,
the little village of B . She was naturally of a gen
nature, and that, with her good looks and lavished
wealth, won her many lovers. And indeed she was a
lovely creature to look upon. .One might read a world of
love and tenderness in her mild, bine eyes; and, indeed,
many hearts had melted beneath their tender gaze. And
then her golden ringlets, floating over her pure, white
brow, made her appear more like an angel than of human
birth. Just the opposite in appearance was her cousin
Irene. She was the eldest of two daughters of Judge
Nym. and was the most light-hearted creature that ever
shook ringlets, and beautiful ones she had to shake.
They were of a glossy, jet black ; and she had long, dark
lashes, which shaded as sparkling, black eyes as ever were
looked through. There was but one months difference in
their aees, and they were both "sweet seventeen." They ,
been playmates from early childhood, and were ever j
be found together. It was pleading to see them togeth-1
they made such a contrast. Eftle with her quiet, gen. j
manners, ano ansciie-nite appearance, ana Irene gay
thoughtless, wild and fascinating. It was a general ;
wonder how they could agree, with manners and disposi- j
uoos so aiuereni; DUi-iney ua ana were ine nest menus.
They were universally ackowledged to be the villaga beau
ties; but Kaira was the belle would have been a bard task
ascertain. Neither of them wanted foradmirers, for no
could boast of more than were constantly on hand for
two cousins. Irene was inclined to act the part of the I
coquette. She would encourage young men to pay her at
tention, and when con6dent of having won the loTe, they
forward to oflcr their heart and hand she would cast
them aside with painful and mortifying indifference. But
notwithstanding her coquettish nature, she had a prefer
to one. This lucky young man's name was Willie
He was young, interesting and inherited vast wealth,
Irene truly loved him. But yet he bad never propos-
fearing, perhaps, he would meet tbe same fate of her
It was different with Effie. She had as many admirers
Irene, but she did not wish to plsy the trifler's part,
with an easy grace, by even a look, gave them to un
derstand that she could not return their love. It need not
strange then that Irene should think it so strange,
she heard iat Effie had been seen walking with ft
WUlie." And indeed she had walked with a Willie, and
taken a fancy to him, too, rostrh to the surprise of every
But it was not the Willie, that Irene thought it to
Xo, but it was Willie Bayton, a cousin to Willie Lee,
of as respectable appearance and standing in society,
not better. But Irene only hearing that it was Willie
Effie May bad been seen walking with, and thinking,
course, of no other but her own Willie; jealousy, that
monster, at once entered and took possession of
heart; and to find out the truth of the report, she had
called on her cousin, the morning that our story com
Irene had hoped that it would prove false, but Effie did
deny it, and the "tell-tale blushes" told too plainly
truth of the matter. She left her cousin with some
feelings of envy in her heart. She had too much pride to
her cousin know her feeUngs, and Effie thought of
course, that WUlie Bayton was the subject of their conver
sation. SUU Irene thought that perhaps, all would yet
right, and lived on the blessed trust of hope. The next
as Irene sat by her piano, running her fingers list
lessly over its delicate keys, thinking of Willie and won
dering a?Ay he should deceive her, she was suddenly inter
rupted from her musings by the entrance of her sister
Helen, a bright-eyed maiden of" twelve summers, who
bounded lightly into tlie mom saying, "Irene, here ia a
for cousin Effie, Willie sent it and wants you to car
ry it directly to her," and out she tripped again, before
could find words to reply. Her first thought was to
tlie seal and read it: but as she was really an hon
orable girl, she would not allow that to be her mode of ac
tion, but started for her cousin Effie's,
"Here is ft note from Willie Lee," said Irene, as she has
tily seated herself by her cousin's side. I suppose you
have no objection to mv seeing it too? Effie took the
wondering why he shuuld have written to her, and
iraring it open, reau
"W Deak F.FTraYnn mar think stranpe for me
T9U thus, but I HepsnsaS. Iffia, I Is not wish to:
of long ceremonies; my only desire is that you shall become
my Kft. Say I may hope, dear, and I shall be the happiest
of mortals, but it not, I never wish to see you again. Ton
are the only one I can ever love, and I could not bear to
meet even on friendly terms if my love Is not returned;
though I never can cease to love yoo. Willie."
Effie laid down the note, saying It was very strange that
Willie Lee should think of such a thing. She proceeded
at once to answer it, and was too much occupied to notice
the palid countenance of Irene, who sat motionless as a
statue. But at last she summoned all the pride she could
command. Ko, Effie should not know the struggle going
on within. She tried to snilile, but what a wan and
deathly smile it was. She took the note that Uie had
written, but she did not read it. No, she cared not wheth
er he was received or rejected. She hurriedly reached
home and giving the note to Helen to dispose of, sought
her own mom, there to drown her grief in tears.- She
sobbed aloud. She felt that earth had no more charms for
her. It was her first sorrow, or perhaps, she would have
borne it more bravely. And what a pity that the bright
girl, whose path had been all sunshine, should have
so dark a cloud pass over her light brow. But at last she
dned her tears, as a bright thought darted through her
mind.-Silt would not let him be the one to break the
news to her, (that she was east aside;) she would get the
start of hun In that. Summoning all her courage, the
wrote a note to Willie Lee, telling him that henceforth
they would meet as strangers, and for reasons of he r own
which she would not telL , .... , .
On the afternoon of the same day, Willie Bay ton was
passing Judge Nyms house, when a gay voice pronoueed
his name. On looking up he beheld the sunny face of
Helen Nyms at an open window of the second story.
"Here is a note from Effie, sent in reply to the one yon
wrote I suppose, and she threw it down on the pave
ment below., It was instantly in his hand and he hurried
away to a proper place to peruse Its contents. Fire min
utes more found him at home in his latber'i library.
Having carefully locked the door, be seated himst If by the
table, longing, yet fearing to open the fatal note. On
the back was simply written "Willie. He gazed on it a
moment,. Imprinted a kiss, but could wait- no longer He
was impatient to know his fate. Hastily tearing it open
he read the following decisive words.
Willie: I can but say that your note surprised me
very much. I had never cherished the least thought that
yon loved me. Indeed we are scarcely acquainted, having
met only a few times. And I must say plainly that I can
never love yon, for my affections are placed on another.
I would willingly regard yon still as a friend; but as your
wish is that we shall remian strangers, so let it be.
Ohl had she hut known to whom she was addressing
these words, how different would have been their senti
ment. But she was ignorant of the fact that it was Wil
lie Barton, whom she was addressing-
As Willie read these words, his heart sank within him.
He had never dreamed that the fair girl was deceitful.
He had thought it impossible for deceit to lie in such a
lovely form. And more than that, he had believed he
was confident of her love. But delusive bopel she said
she loved another. Who could it be? And she, whom
he had so fondly cherished, must be cast aside forever.
His head sank on the table before him, and a slight groan
escaped his lips. He folded the note, which he still held
as precious, although it had been the cause of so much
grief, placed it next to bis heart, and that very night, en
gaged for a trip on a ship bound for France. Strange hapl
his cousin, Willie Lee, had engaged for a trip on the same
ship. Having received Irene's note, he determined to, if
possible, thus to forget his grief. Before Willie Bayton
departed he ehanced to pass the home of Effie Hay. She
was seated on the marble steps in front of her father's
splendid mansion, when on looking up from her book in
which she was deeply engaged, whom should she see ap
proaching but her own dear Wlie Bayton. - She arose
to speak to him, but before she was aware of it, he was
gone; bad passed her without seeming even to notice her,
and with a scornful expression on his face Eflie'sfuce
crimsoned, and then she felt the hot blood rush back to
her heart. She knew that she was deadly pale, but
could not see her, therefore she did not care. She entered
tlie house and threw herself on the sofa. She felt that
Willie loved her no more, but she could not weep; her
fceart was broken, yet its fountain was dry. Bitterly she
thought of all her bright anticpations her many bright
hopes were crushed
' "Her earth star fled.
Her bosom heaved; one solitary tear stole down from be
neath her long silken lashes, and dropped at her feet; the
only, sole reward of so much love.
One year has rolled away since we last met with the
two cousins, Irene and Effie. But the passing year has
touched them lightly; no trace of it is to be sn, unless
it is in their heightened beauty. Yes, they are the same
beautiful, fascinating creatures. Tbe bright month of
June has come again with its blooming roses, and sweet
songsters. Effie with her cousins, Irene and Helen, are
spending the Summer at their ancle's delightful country-
At the close of a bright summer day, Irene and Effie
were seated in the large and pleasant arbor. They had
long been silent, for their thoughts were far away. Tea,
they still loved their Willies, in spite of all their repeated
efforts to banish them from their minds. Numerous ad
mirers thronged their way wherever they went; but they
were unheeded, as the cousins had determined never to
marry, unless it could be the dear objects of their hearts.
Snd(lcI.v lheir meditations were interrupted by the en-
tenu)ce of j,, who ncarlv out of breath 0y her great

brought them both safely back. Yon need not blush so
Effie, nor look so wild Irene. I presume, though you have
known all tbe time wben they were coming back; so, per
haps, it is not so very great news to yon after all."
"Xo indeed, we have known nothing about it," said they
one 0,, uaoreiy, how should we have known, when
we had no idea of their departure, until they were gone.
TVe saw neither of them." .
"Sure enough, how etonld yon have known. That is a
query, continued the provoking Helen. " v hat II you
did not see them. I presume tbey thought ft personal
parting would be too affecting. But I am sure that little
note that Willie Bayton sent to Effie disclosed the whole.
How is it Effie, dear?"
"The note that Willie Bayton sent me! I never re
ceived ft note from him "
"Oh, yes yon did. Yoa are only mistaken ft little I
guess, for yon certainly did, and answered it. I ought to
know as I was the message bearer."
The truth flashed at once through their minds. They
had all ieen mistaken. Effie covered her face with her
bands, not daring to more for fear she would awake and
and it all a dream ; and Irene, in her great delight, scarce
ly knowing what she did, fell on her knees and related
the whole to Helen. '
Helen tripped joyfully to the bouse, while Effie and
Irene sat long, side by side, talking over the bright morn
ing that seemed dawning over their heads. Meanwhile
Helen had a scheme in her bead, which, she determined
carry into operation. Having related the whole to her
ancle Ran some, she obtained his permission to send an
invitation for our two fortunate heroes to spend the eve
ning at his honse.
Io the early part of the evening, Effie and Irene were
standing out on the broad, green piazaa, their deep beauty
rendered still more brilliant, at the yellow flood of moon
light was lavishly shed around them.
"Oh," said Effie, "I wonder if Willie baa forgotten me?
How I should like to see him once more."
"And you have your wish," said the merry voioe of Hel
en, as she led the way, followed by two gallant youths.
"There has been quite a mistake," she continued, "and I
suppose you think that I am rather ft dark genius. But
now I hope you will consider me a bright genius, as I haTe
repaired all mischief. But" she added, as she tripped
lightly away, you must remember that 'the course of
true love never yet ran smooth "
One month from that eve, which proved a happy era in
four young hearta, the spacious parlors of the country
seat were grandly illuminated, and the fond lovers, who
had been so long separated, were united forever.

Rum and the Sabbath.
Whether nil men are ftgrecd with ns or
not as to the extent and magnitude of the
evils produced in our world by rum, there
can be no question in the mind of every m
telligent, observant Christian man that by
its sale and use Sabbath descration ia very
largely promoted, especially in our larger
, Whilst men of every other pursuit shut
up their stores and manufactories, their of
fice or counting-houses, and abstain from all
seculiar employment on the Lord s dar, the
bar-room, and the saloon, and the low grog-
gory are all open unblushingly tor the sale
of strong drink, and around those corners
where these establishments are to be found
and, alas ! they are legion mombers of
the precocious manhood of our city will
over be found, with loud talk, profane jests,
and obscene remark to the annoyance of
the quiet passer to the house of God, and
to the scandal of our community. .
It may be safely estimated that in New
York alone, ten thousand of such haunts of
various grade, may be found in full blast on
every Sabbath, pouring out a continuous
stream of pollution and death, alluring our
youth, the hope of our land, to habits of
dissipation and debauchery winning our
manhood with syreno tongue, and every
blandishment from the house of prayer,
and from the sacred and neglected duties
and happiness of home.
Crod requires that we sanctify this day
and hallow it to him. Our satute laws based
on the requirements of the Decalogue, pro
vide for its observance. From every pul
pit in our lands, in every school-house in
our wide domain, around every hearth stone,
the same great truth is taught again, and
have none so ignorant but know that the
first day of the week is the Sabbath that
all worldly employments or recreation there
on are sinful and unlawful; and yet through
the seduction of the bowl, or the more des
picable love of gain, thousands systemati
cally disregard the injunction and prosecute
their calling, and tons of thousands permit
themselves to be drawn within the vortex of
the fatal whirl, which if continued in will
surely draw them down to a speedy death.
Shall these things be ? Is there not virtue
and religion and patriotism enough amongst
us to stay this tide of desolution ? , We may
be told the law is impotent, aye ! so it is,
when there is no desire on the part of the
officials to enforce it; and when our citizens
look on from day to day, and from year to
year with callous indifference.
r Let every pulpit in our city cry out
against this terrible evil let all the presses
raise their note of warning let the good
and true of every denomination, and of
every class, unite together and resolve that
the Sabbath shall bo honored let er
ery man that loves that day make it his
business to see that it is respected, and wo
shall raise a righteous clamor on the subject
that will blanch the cheeks and palo the
heart of every servant of the evil ono that
seeks in this manner to dishonor God and
desecrate His day. . ..
"The Sabbath was made for man." An
all-wise and beneficent Jehovah has provi
ded for him this dav of rest--rest not only
from wordly labor, but from worldly cares
rest, that every faculty may be recruited
and refreshed, and that in closer communion
with his God, ho may bo strengthened for
the duties and trials of the comming week.
By such employment of this dav, it will bo-
come to us as a people, a national good, and
to every family, a weekly recurring bless
ing; but the demon of the rum shop, in
appropriating it to his own use, and thus
descreting and dishonoring it, hasconvertcd

The Steamer Pacific.
Mr. R. K. Haight, of this city, has re
ceived a letter from a London friend, under
date of April 22, expressing tho belief that
tho steamer facilic has been blown on tho
Greenland coast. We extract a portion of
tho communication : JY. Y. lnbune.
"Your letter of 5th April conveys to us
the painful apprehension under which you
labor of the loss of tho Pacific and your
son. it is remarkable that my son m Urn
na, now a partner in a large mercantile
house, should have sent homo a ship load
of tea in tho Swallow, Capt. Tuckor, who
saw tho Pacific drifting before a terrific galo
he thought, disabled in her machinery.
ow, (Japt. 1 ucker is a most intimate friend
of tho captain of tho Pacific, who said to
him often: "I am a Northern bird; I find
the degrees less." On Capt Tucker arriv
ing, he said to some of his consignees that
he had every reason to beleive the Pacific
was disabled, and drifting before tho gale
and would be found on tho northern point
of Greenland. Lord Palinerston sent for
him, and he stated his opinion, when two
men-of-war steamers were instantly dis
patched to search every part of the coast
one was the Tartar, in which was my neph
ew, Mr Harford. They have returned.
Capt. Tucker does not now give up the ship
as lost. He says, in such a galo what would
a disabled steamer do? He brought us
home 19,000 packages of tea; but for ten
days be believed his ship would never ride
it out, and such a storm prevented his once
taking off his clothes. Capt. Tucker says
the gale would have blown a disabled steam
er three hundred miles in twenty-four hours
out of her course, for they could set so little
canvas. Now look at the chart a gale of
wind of nine days duration, a ship like a log
on tho water, why where would she be
blown to ? I cannot help believing, and
really hoping, tho crew are yet safe with tho
ship on some of the inhospital shores of
Greenland, and they may any day be heard
of, or ns soon ns they can construct a vessel
from tho wreck to bring them awav."

as throwing light upon the late proceedings
in Kansas. We gire them in brief i
The St Louis Demoeraf t correspondent
says that stores and dwelling houses were
indiscriminately broken into and robbed.
One man named Johnson had $2,000 in
drafts, cheeks and land warrants taken from
him, and Col. Topliffo, appointed Colonel of
Militia last fall by Gov. Shanon, was forci
bly dispossessed of his commission and pri
vate papers, watch and money to the
amount of $300. His trunk was also bro
ken open and his clothes carried off. The
house and library belonging to Brown, tha
editor of the Herald, was twice set on fire
but was extinguished by the citizens.
Tho Chicago Tribune has information as
follows: Gen. Whitfield led the Ruffians.
Shanon was distributing United States mus
kets to the Missouri Ruffians-ftlready they
have received near three thousand stand of
Government arms. Tho United States
troop are not allowed to leave their quai"
ters 1 though they and their commander are
burning to avenge the wrongs of the Free
State men. Mr. Warren met Atchison,
late the Vice President of the United
States, near Lawrence, with two ' pieces tjf
cannon and sixty men, making their way to
the beleaguered city, swearing vengeance
on the d d Yankees ! Cattle are shot
down in the fields, and oxen at tha plows.
It is supposed that Gen. Pomerojihas been
hung by the mob. He was seen last in
front of the Free State Hotel in Lawrence.
The Congressional Committee is threatened
by the mob, and they are preparing to leave
to ensum their own safety. -
The Westport Time at tho 23d, saya
that the Investigating Committee are still
at Leavenworth. The letters are chiefly
confirmatory of the previous accounts.
Judge Schuyler writes, under data of the
20th, that himself and Conway are set at
liberty, G. H. Brown is still the prisoner
of the mob at Lecompton. Gov. Robin
son is in a similar situation at Westport,
shannon refuses to interfere with the posse.,
Schuyler called upon Oliver to use his influ
ence with Shannon. Sherman also made
request. Olirer promised to answer in 15
minutes, but neglected it until too late.
Said then that Shannon was an effete do
tard, and that nothing was possible.- Tha
mob fired upon an Indian a few miles from
Lawrence, who is since dead. Tho Delewara
tribe have determined upon vengeance.
There are reports of tresa murders upon
tho route. On the passage of tha mob
into Lawrence, Gov. Shannon agreed in
writing that if the arms were delivered np
to Col. Sumner, only a sufficient number
to make the arrests should be allowed to
enter. After compliance, he declared that
the arms must be delivered to the posse and
'he destruction of the hotel, offices and
breastworks allowed. Much indignation
was felt at tho action of tho safety commit

tho reason why the Free State Committee
of Public safety gave up their arms: Got.
