THEY LIE WHO TELL US LOVE HAM
They lie who tell us lore las wica
To fly away when press'd by sorrow,
That as he flics he gaily sings:
"I'll come, if tbe sun shines, to morrow!
For, Stella dear, dot then not know
That gentle hcav'nly love rcposos,
Upon the iron couch of woo
As swtctas in his bod cf roses.
Thcro is a apirit men call Love
That ewes its birth to sordid paikion,
Thnt flutters, like a moth, abovo
And round tho gilded Bhrine of fashion;
Thi- is he that plumes his wings
And flies the field when pressed by sorrow,
This is he that lightly sings :
' I'll come, if the sun shines, to morrow.
But Love that from his bower on high
Poets have woo'd in spirit vision,
That brings the glories of the sky
EaiUiwaruaou his fcwut't; luiieion,
Grows brighter as the nipht comes on.
Sings sweeter when dull woca invade us,
And when dark cloude obscuro the sun,
His pinions closely ovcrsbadeus.
Let Fortune, Summer Nymph, depart,
Let hopes prove false and sorrows lower,
They cannot settle round the heart
Where Love has built his rosy bower;
Old Timo may steal from Beauty's crown
The diamond Youth, that beams so splendid,
Eut Love will smooth each wrinklo down,
And sing of youth when time is ended.
Then Lore's to Lot. 1 that closely kuita
True hearts with bonds thatnought can sover,
That at tbe helm thro' tempests sits
And guides us down life's rhequertd river;
Thai standi u on Death's frowning steep
Aud flirgs Lis light across the billow
TLitsiKga us to our cradle sleep
And softly smooths ou dyinj pillow.

Harry iloraaino'c Mistake.
BY EVA MORDAUNT.
Harry Iloraaine was young:,
and rich ; he was esteemed a
fellow" auiuiig his bachelor friends, and
as for tho gentler sex, anxious mamas as
sumed their blandest air whtu he approach
cu, and tier lovely uVughters greeted
him with their moit bewitchiog smiles.
Ah I Harry hud no reason to complain of
tho world s treating hiva ill ho was bless
ed with everything necd.ul to make him
the happiest of dv.gs and very well satis
fied was he with himself one fine norning
u3 he stepped aboard the cars bound for
his country-seat. It was a new acquisition
of his t la i i4 country-scat. An old uncle,
whom llariy's parents had honored by
giving his name to their son, and for
whom Harry entertained about ns much
regard as for the mau in the moon, or any
other antiquated individual, had bequeath
ed it to him when he departed this lifo
some months before.
So Harry was going down to examine
his new property, aud though he thought
it would have been quite as convenient if
tho place had been a little nearer civilized
beings, still, if there were good fishing
and hunting in'tthc neighborhood he doubt
ed not ho might kill tome time there in
company with two or thrco of the fellows
whom he wouli send for. Though rather
out of humor with tho long journey, yet
on the whole, Harry was pretty good ma
tured as ho stepped from tho cars, and
proceoded to tho flourishing hotel which
adorned tho villago of 13. Making
himself known to the landlord, that indi
vidual, with much rc?poct and great cere
mony, informed him that his carriage was
"Jupiter 1 that's not so bad," ejacula
ted he, as a plain but elegant carriage,
drawn by a splendid pair of iron-grays,
met his view. Tho coachman, evidently
an old family servant, bowed low as tho
landlord presented his master, and opcued
the door with as much cmpresscmcnt as if
for a prince. Tho ride overs sraooth,hard
road, on tho softest cf cushions and tho
easiest of sprinirs, relieved Harry's cramp
ed limbs, and by the time ho reached the
mansion be was in a sufficiently comfort t
blc state of mind to'noto and appreciate
t o bo uties of the place. Tho house wa
a quaint, irregular pita of buildings, part
of which had been added from timo to
time, evidently with raoro regard to con
veniflnco, than beauty of architecture,
surrounded on ovcry sidoby far-stn-tching
plains of verdure, thickly studded with
nobl" trees of many year's growth. The
domains were skirt, d for "car their whole
extent by 3 thick wood, a? d far away in
another direction, roso tho blue tops of
the distant mountains.
, Harry had written to tho housckce p- r
of his c ming, so that she was expecting
him, and evidently great pr paratious had
been made to receive tho tew master.
And IIrry like ! the lockr; here vaa a
nico place for him to rusticate, and he re
solved not to let his sisters Tan and Suo
get wind of it, for they would bo sure to
bo charmed with tho romantic situation,
and iusist upon taking possession immedi
ately. After attending to the wants of
the inner man. hesauutcred out for a stroll
over his extensive grounds, and wandered
on till ho reached the forest that skirted
them. Following a well troldcn path, he
entered the forest, and as he strolled on,
ho was charmed, as many a denizen of tlu
closo city has been before, with the fresh
air, and bright, clear sky of the country.
The fcrczc, fragrant with the odor of the
pino trees invigorated him, and as ho
wandered on, he revelled in a sense of
buoyancy which ho had seldom experi
enced. Suddenly he came upon an open
ing amid the trees. 1 he sotting sun ting
ed the bright hue cf the gra&s tvilh a soft
radiance, and cast a glittering shado upon
the waters of a little brook which mur
"Truly, this is a very Eden, and th re
as I live, is an Eve, or rather a naiad, just
risen from the pearly wave," ho Faid, as
he saw a maiden laving her white foot in
the gurgling 6tream.
She turned around at his words, and
disclosed a countenance of fresh, young
beauty. Glossy brown locks dishevelled
by her employment, fell around a face of
the mot perfect oval, which was lighted
up by lustrous orbs of the richest bluej
while a pink flush, which had risen t her
cheeks at the sight of a stranger, height
ened and greatly enhanced her beauty.
Accustom d as Harry was to the f urpa.a
ing Iovclinc8.i of ball-room belles, hetho't
ha had never seen anything so beautiful
as this barefooted ma den, as she stood
with the .unconscious grace of a startled
"Pardon me, fair maid," he said, ad
vancing and bowing low, "pardon me ftr
thus disturbing your gambcls in your na
tive ck'uu-nt. "lis seldom that the god
desses of tho wave dcigu to show them
selves to mo.tals."
A look of innocent wonder ovi-rsprcad
her face as he spoke and her blue oibs d;
latcd lis she looked at him.
"I tai no goddess, sir," she said, "only
anmplc cottage maid wading in thebrook."
Vicmsuo renuiiea ' Harry to hiruscif,
and smiling at tho thought of what his
aristocratic mama and legant sisters wo'ld
say to flee him thus entranced at tho fight

but trr.a timo in latig
uage suited to ncr
oo:ii reheniiou. Sho replied
for child of the woods a" she was, ahc knew
not fear, and charmed by her beauty and
artlt.na grace, Harry Komainc lingered
long by the broo in the foicst glado.
lut"the deepening uhados at length
v.'arncd him of tho lateness of the hour,
and accompanying tho rustic n:nid to a
cottage not far distant, he bade her go-d
eight with as m ch deference ai he wo'ld
have fchowti tho most polished belle of his
acqtiaiutar.ee, and then pursued his home
ward way liut thoughts of tho beautiful
creature ho had lett accompanied him,and
for the fir.'t timo in his lifo, tho vision of
a beautiful maiden mingled with his
dreams. It was not Ptrango then that he
wondered somewhat when he remembered
it tho following morning, and still more,
wheu in tliO course of his rambles about
the ground, a fair young face, with eyes
of richest blue would ris; beforo him, and
make itself tho centra of his thoughts.
Ilo was not wont to be taken in that way,
it was something new to him rather lu
dicrous to be sure that he was so struck
by that pretty little rustic, aud yet at the
sunset hour ho fouud himself pursuing the
the old path to tho forest glade.
As he expected, its presiding deity was
thcro seated on the moss-covered roots cf
a stalwart ok. A bright flush roso to
her check as she acknowledged hi greet
ing, and she made a slight movement as
if to rise as ho seated himself besido
her, butlie detained her, and with the ad
dress of p. polished mau of the world, plac
ing her entirely at her case, ho cntorcd in
to conversation. Her naive, artless inno
cence charmed him, man of the world as
ho :n as, and accustomed to the wiles and
arts of tho fashionablo women, and the at
mosphere of freshness which seemed to
cncirclo her, refreshed him, bla$ with
fashionable dissipation. And as for her,
child of tho woods, she could sit for hours
listening to tslo of the gay world, of which
hitherto she had scarcely dreamed, fascin
ated by his polished manners, so different
from thoso of tho boors around her, from
any one she had evereeen.
And thus it happened that for many
days the same sunset hour found them
pitting sido by side at tho foot of tho moss
grown oak, but now his arm encircled htr
waist, and her head rested on his beom,
-whilo ho taught her the bliss! ul lesson of
love. And she was an apt eehola. that
young, tondcr thing she had learned to
love him, and her life, before his coming,
as calm as the unruffled bosom of a peace
ful lake, was now rendered tumultuous
and fevered by tho strango passion that
throbbed in her veins. Thromzh tho lorn?
! day sho waited wearily, performing u.c-
ohanicaliy her aconnto ued duties, till tl o
round, red cun trcmb'ed on tho horizon,
and thn, as his hut bright beam n.ink be

dream was rudely interrupted. Hairy
was going to leav ft . Messages and
letters innumerable had como to him to
know what he could find to do with him
self in that dull place whatccuM posr.cs-i
him to bury lutus.clf alive til summer, and
at last came a summons from his proud
mother to moot her immnliatcly at a fash
ionable watering place. He was well sit
uated, ho was not suffering with ennui
not at all but like many mother brave
Harry was not .icscriiblc to the : id-
icule of his acquaintance, or, still more, to
the snecra of his haughty sister?. He , now the verdant glen in the wildwood

as ho had half a mind to do, but then he ' and he thought of them he remembered
thought of the appearance she would make ! the days of fon sgo, when hr sat by her

so proud, and his 'heart failed Lim. She j reading her whole soul there. His con

up when he joined her, thcugh he waver-,
ed somewhat ns he took her n his arms,
thinking it was tho last time that hesho'ld
hold her thus, and boked down into tbe
clear depths of har blue cyea.
" Meta." ho said, at last, " Met?., I aui

for trusting in him ushe did,
t not of hV breaking it, and
she thn tcht
she Rtnothered her sobs that thoy u.ight

grief. A long time the lovcr3 sat there,
Harry cursing the fato that loaded him
with chains stronger than thesa cf iron,
and wishing himself for the ;ricc a 111.5.
rowed Harry, and p.ucking a tiny violet
from its mosy bed Dy the rivulet's bat.k,
he placed it in her hand saying :
"Keep that in remcmberancc of mc,
Then, afteronc wild, passionate embrace
he left her. His rca pearanco in the
fashionable world created some excitement
but answering all inquiries by saying that
ho had becu rusticating n little, ho pluns
cd anew into the vortex of dissipation,
which after his long absence had rou.e
what the zest of novelty. And al:u f;.r
Meta, left behind in tho lonesome village!
At first, Harry had intended to return to
her, but as the weeks sped on, the memo
ry of her grew fainter and fainter, until
at last all thoughts of tho beautiful being
who was ouceso dear to him had entirely
vanished from his mind. And while Meta
watched for him with an eagerness which
quickened every pulse, and sharpened ov
cry nerve, refusing the terrible thoughts
that he had forgotten her, whioh somctimca
would arise down in her heart, ho waa
bowing low before another and more pre
tentions shrine. Ncv York was ringing
with the praises of a Southern belle, who
was beautiful, accomplished, and rcttcr
than all, rich. Harry had joi.icd tho train
of her admirers, and incited to exertion by
the number of competitors, he at last won
the prize, and gave his mother and sisters
the pleasure of superintending ouo of tho
most brilliant weddings of tho scasou.
A fashionable couple they made Harry
loved his wifo as ho did hh horses sho
added to tho eclat of his establiahincntjand
she esteemed him as tho did her bouquet
holder, or her opera glass ho was neces
sary to her convenience.
The opera house was crowded with the
beauty and fashion of tho city. A new
star was to raako her appearance, and the
vast sea of waving plumes and sparkling
ccrns surged and swelled with expectation.
But suddenly every voico was hushed,and
every eye turuod toward the stage, as a
tall graceful form glided 6i!cntly cn, and
commenced her rcU. Wave upon wave
of liquid melody floated out upon tho sir,
and enchained thcaudiencja: by a Strang?
