'Thero is a ridiculous story told of u girl
who was found'out by the well, one summer's
day, weeping bitterly. When aaked
what \vn? the matter, sho sobbed?" O, I
was thinking if T was married, and had a
dear litile boy like Tommy, and then if I
lighted a fire in the oven one day, and then
if I went away, and left Tommy all alone,
i :e ?r -i - ? ? -
.him nu n ii 1 umiiiy sflOUlU creep llllO tllO
i il-Iiot even,-and, anil Tommy should be
burned to death?oh?oh"?and with a
cry of great grief, tho poor girl tortured
herself with this imaginary evil.
What strange form, this demon takes,
sometimes! Olio very respectable lady
spent her spare lime in sighing for fear she
should be troubled with the rheumatism
when she got old. Another was tortured
with the fear of consumption, and read all
the treatises, editorial tracts and tomes relating
to thai interesting subject, besides visiting
every consumptive patient within forty
miles, to become more minutely acquainted
with the symptoms, and after all her siglis
and groans and fretfulness and tears, died
quietly in her bed of old age. Had tho
days of her murmuring been spent in giving
consolation to tho poor, the sick the
suffering, what a different tale might her
life have told.
Another was afllicled with the demon of
poverty. lie was a rich man, and upon his
brow gray hairs were growing, but rich,
beloved by his own family as lie was, the
demon told him constantly, in haunting
whispers, that he would be poor, v<>ry poor,
that he would end his life in an institution
of charity, and there ho would ait in his
costly arm-chair, with bowed down head,
musing on his forth coming destitution.?
In vain his children were praised, in vain
his fine possessions lauded; it was all very
well, now, he would say, but wait, wait?a
few years would tell a different story. And
60 strong did this mania, with which he
should have done manful battle in the be_
^ginning?become, that it was melancholy
to visit him?to see him wandering with
long visage over his beautiful grounds, his
eyes, fiixed upon the ground; to hear
liis sighs, to listen to his mournful predictions.
Of what good was that mau's life
to hi in ?
Another is perpetually haunted with the
thought that his neighbor, perhaps the man
with whom he has grown up from childhood,
will outstrip him in a show of wealth
. and better living. It is like a constant
nicrhtmare. this thought, it mlia liim nf l.i=

in the continual strife for competition
with bis more successful neighbor.?
Toor man! see, tbo color fades out of bis

upon bis brow, bis eyes turn yellow, bis
skin grows sallow ; gray bairs come rapidly
?disease saps at bis vitals; be kills himself
in order to live; be commits suicide
tbat be may outstrip bis neighbor; be has
not lived the pure life meet for heaven :
if progression is eternal^ to what deeper
deeds of misery must be be constantly descending
Is it so ? are we all giving heed to some
imaginary ghost? There is not much in
the world, to be sure, tbat encourages the
blessed attribute of trust, but surely tbat
man may trust God. "NVe talk of providences,
but do not believe in them;
we plant the seed, and trouble ourselves for
fear it may never come up. And when its
tardy Lead, all jewelled with dew, and smiling
in tlio sunshine of tlic great Creator's
loyc, lifts itself from tlio ground, then we
begin to wonder if it will bear blossoms.?
And if the blossoms come rich and red,
'"** ? more beautiful than the painter?s hand can
color, then we doubt if tho fruit will evei
appear. And when the fruit, with its delectable
juices hidden by the crimson rind,

grumble if it has not the peculiar tlavoi
which we expected. And thus wo go on,
day after day, night after night, weeping
and mourning and doubting and protesting,

be thankful for. We love to Bunimon out

"Ah! Nancy, it's pretty certain you'll

M. A. D.
Some sixteen years since, a young gentleman
in New York city contrived awhile to
pay his addresses to a beautiful girl there,

in his endeavors to win the young lady, and

Still th'? lovers contrived to meet occasionally
afterwards ; and at the expiration o(
some six mouths, matters having been previously
so arranged, the girl consented to
marry the youth. Ho did not seek the
fortune, for he was in employment, at a
handsome salary, as principal book-keeper
in an extensive jobbing'bouse, and his pecuniary
prospects were very fair. But the
parents were obdurate, and he was driven
from the house.
At the end of a twelvemonth they rtftreed
to be married, and all the requisite arrangements
were made; the ovening was fixed
upon, and even the chaplain had been secretly
engaged *, but on the day proposed
for the nuptials, the whole plan was
1 discovered, and the match broken off per

' rents turned up?a man of considerable
means, but old enough to be the young
' girl's father; and a match was arranged
after a long persuasion, between Emma and
^ this man, and she wedded him at last.
Three years subsequently the young mar
found himself in New England, where In
settled and took a wife also, and some dozen
1 years passed away, with their thousand and

? and of fortune. From the time of theii
separation the original lovers had nerei

for him along his way, and hopo followed
with longing eyes. The Assembly of New
York congratulated him ; Governor Trumbull,
of Connecticut, gave warm welcome
and encouragement; a delegation from the
Massachusetts Provisional Congress met
him at Springfield, nnd the Congress was
cordial in its address.
lie arrived at Cambridge, and took .command
of the army on the 2d of July.
Washington was then forty-three years
old. Born and raised in Virginia, where
ho had been a surveyor and land agent,
and accustomed to a frontier life, he was
not new to arms, for he had led various expeditions
against the Indians, and had saved
the remains of Braddocks command.
He was master of an ample fortune
(inherited from a relative) and a largo estate
on the banks of the Potomac, at Mount
Vernon ; was well married, but childless.
No man in America was externally better
able to fill the difficult and dangerous position
to which he had been elected.
Now was ho fitted for it by nature and
Ilis body was vigorous, accustomed to
hardship, and his person was commanding,
and ho was trained to act with inen and
soldiers. With no brilliancy of mind, with
trained impulses, instincts small, and sympathies
latent, as the master of an estate in
Virginia he would iiavc excited no enthusi..shT
when living, and would have died universally
respected. He was not the man
to seize the moment and by an inspiration,
with a single blow, accomplish the work of
years. But, in the midst of doubtful and
discordant elements, surrounded by strong,
impetuous, or willful, or disponding men,
beset by conflicting opinions, liis calm,
sound mind led bim to conclusions wbicb,
if slow, were sure. Ho was not a man of
inspirations, but of judgments. As an
executivo man, through a difficult and trying
crisis, ho had no superior, and perhaps
no equal, in America.
But his moral jwwer was singularly great,
and deserves a monument such as these
United States ought to become. He was
free from self-seeking, from vanity, and

This sound judgment and calin moral
confidence, united with his steady executive
talent, made him the man for the hour.
Ho went forward with his purpose, and no
danger or difficulty could discourage confidence.

DEATH Of OICEBO.
Marcus Cicero Laving got safe to Anturn,
imbarked, and with n fair wind arriwd at
Dircii. When tlio vessel was ngnin about
,o sail, his miud wavered, ho flattered liiin- i
lelf that matters might yet take a more
favorable turn; he landed, and travelled
ibout twelve miles on bin way to Rome :
but bis resolution again failed him, and be 1
anco moro returned towards the son. i
Being arrived on the const, he still hesitated,
remained on shore, and passed tho
night in agonies of sorrow, which were |
interrupted only by momentary starts of
indignation and rage. Under these emotions,
ho sometimes solaced himself with a
proBpect of returning to Rome in disguise,
of killing himself in the presanco of
Octaviua, and of staining the person of
that young traitor with the blood of a man,
whom he had so ungratefully and so vilely
belrayed. Even this appeared to his frantic
imagination some degreo of revenge;but
the fear of being discovered before he
could execute his purpose, the prospect of
the tortures and indignities he was likely
to suffer, deterred him from this design;
and being unable to tike any resolution
whatever, he committed himself to his at

having another villa on the shore, ho was
again landed, and being fatigued with tho
motion of tho sea, went to rest; but his

tlio times, being disturbed with prodigies
and unfavorable presages, or rather being

little repose awaked him from his sle6p,
forced him into his litter, and hastened
again to embark. Soon after thev were
gone, Popilius Lamas, a tribune of the elgions,
and Herennius, a centurion, with a
party who had been for sonio days in search
of this prey, arrived at villa. Popilius had
received particular obligations from Cicero,
having been defended by him when tried
upon a criminal accusation ; but these were
times, in which bad men could make a
merit of ingratltudSTo their former benefactors,
when it served to ingratiate them
with thoso in power.
This officer, with his party, finding the
gates of the conrt and the passages of tlio
villa shut, burst them open ; but missing
the persou they sought for, and suspecting
ho must have taken his flight again to the
sen, they pursued through an avenue that
led to tho shore, and oame in sight of
Cicero's litter, before he had left the walks
of his own garden.
On the appearance of a military party,
Cicero perceived the end of his labors,
ordered the bearers of his litter to halt ;
and having been hitherto, while there were
any hopes of escape, distressed chiefly by
tho perplexity and indecision of his own
ini/id, he became, as soon as his fate appeared
to bo certatn, determined and calm.
In this situation, he was observed to stroke
his chin with his left hand, a gesture for
which he was remarkable in his moments
of thouglitfujness, and when least disturbed.
Upon tho approach of the party, he put
his head from the litter, and fixed hi* eyes
upon uie inoune wuu great composure.
The countcirtwioo of a man so well known
to every lloman, now worn out with fatigue
and dejection, and disfigured by the
neglect the usual attention to Lis person,
made a moving spectacle even to thoso who
came to asaist in his murder. They hurried
away, while the assassin performed his office
and severed the head from bts b?dy.
