Still he shrank from casting the disgrace
of suicide on a name borne at home by
honorable relations, so he devised a plan,
Inch would accomplish his purpose' with
out crsatit g suspicion- of his having had
suioidal intentions.. 1.1 ,Hr . '
Orar the crater ef Popoeatapel banes a
eloud of sulphurous vapor which issues in
volumes from, lb . depths of the abyss.
Any near' approach to. lbs brink of the
crater produces a suffocationp sensation on
every one' who- has amended : so far. A
descent into the crater, therefore wascon
aidered td be certain death. - All this -was
ell known to htm, 'so he mentioned to
bis' friends bis intention' Id have a tiipto

and the oppression on his respiratory or

Still he peiscvered, and clutching the rope
convulsively he conliaued t the descent,
When Io! on a sudden all oppressiveness

wall of this u nen i't My lirvll whose deme
was propped hy hUi;o fluted columns' of a
glnHsy pnlish, reseml.ling giant bundles of

and astonished, doubted tho evidence' of
his senses, that nil nrciuhd him was unreal,
shadowy, a delusion of his whirling biain.
Dut a dim glimpse i l the distant opening
above him, through which Ihe white yapor
whirled in ascending spirals, and wbi'ch'at
moments 0e clear sulit atmosphere shone

"Well," said lie, wiping the perspira

old Colonel will ask me if I have impoan 1

! The next day me Culofcel gats s dinner

the overseer, sal down with tbe com

"Eb, Mr. Allen, did you impound Lie

Allen straightened himself, and looking
around at the company said:
, "Yea, I did: but old Brindle tranicend-
-Jea theimpannel of the impound, .nd scat
iieopnisiioated sn over tlie equanimity or
Ihe forest." .
The company burst into an immoderate
Ctof laughter, while the Colonel's face
reddened with discomfiture.. ,
VWhatdoyou mean by that sir?'.' said
"Why I mean Colonel." said Allen.
that old Brindle. beinir prognosticated
ith sn idea cholerv, ripped and tared,
snorted and pawed dirt, jumped the fence
tuck to the woods, and woulJu t be im
pounded nohow. ". w.
this was too much;, the comnaov roar
ed again, in which tbe Colonel was forced
to join, and in the midst of the laughter!
Allen left the table, sayinc to himself, as
he Went, "I reckon tlie Colonel won't ask
me to impound any moresoxen."
This nine of sulphur soon yielJed him an
immense fortune, and he returned to his
country a rich, perhaps a better man. Tbe
mine is worked id' this day, snd appears
to be exhaustless. ' ' ' . ..
At the brink of the crater, where the
hero of our tale descended, are still to be
seen two cross posts by ' means of which
he effected his deseen'.nnd which certain
y gave a color of truth to the romance as
told to the writer. '
Tiik Sadness There is js Beactt.
How truly did Shakesneara sav: "I am
never merry when I hear sweet music."'
llow often has a golden sunset or a silver
night brought a sadness to the soul
sadness without pain. Or the lapse of
some sweettune tilled eyes with tear) that
had no thought ol sorro
Apd tbe lacdscape. whose (lowers grow
close to the edge of heaven, that with
suob charms; of summer shade, and Sun,
make vestibules for Paradise, snd us will
ing fo b gone, how olten do they , grow
dim. before our eyes, and yel, there is no
rain, . ,! ' 1 -
. Sometimes in breathless nights, when
earth is full of leaves, and.-sky of stars
there' seems, a melanoholy musio in tbe
mere shining of the , moon, snd we - wish
it would linger forever
And why are these things so, unless we
re born to 'something "fairer; .than this
elondy world? --' Memory consecrates the
past to beauty: and' binds 'the', though
there too, With links of loveliriess, sweet
er to bear than arlands- Of fresh flowers
The ohnfed crows smooth Sod t.iright by
wearing", and We' are' Willing' prisoners al
