THE MOTHER'S LESSON.
& Story Froia a Geraan Ballad.
'Twas night, the star-gemmed and glittering,
when a bereaved mother lay tossinf? on br w
. in all the feverish restlessness of nnsanrt ir,
sorrow. Sleep had fled far from her wearv eve-
lids; and her grief-burdened heart refused to
send up from its troubled fountains the refresh-
ing stream or prayer.
The deep stillness that rested on the hushed
.earth was broken by those saddestof all soun.l,
the bitter wailings of a mother wonr.; fr.r w
children, and "refusing to bo comforted be
cause they are not."
"Oh, woo, woo is me !" was the piteous cry
of that breaking heart, and the piercing sound
went up to the still heavens ; but they looked
xaimiy down in their starry beauty and seemed
to near it not
And thus slowly passed the long, weary hours
of tho night, and naught was heard save the
solemn chiming of tho clock, telling, with iron
tongue, that man was drawing hourly nearer
to tbe quiet grate.

slow, measured strokes, memory was busy with
ino images of the loved and lost. Again they
were before her in all their youthful beautv
sl1?-haId th;i?; gleeful voices and felt their
fond caresses. The night wind swept coolinz
'if into the casement, and, as it touched her
throbbing brow, it seemed like the soft kisses
of her loving children.
: Poor mourner! Could earth furnish no ma
gic mirror in which thou conldest always thus
see the dead living 1 Oh, no! for as melts the
fleecy dtoud into tho" bine depths of heaven,
so passed away tho blessed vision; and seeing
bnt the eolfl nd the shroud, again arose on
ho silent air those tones of despairing an
cuish: TTe ia me! mv sons are de.nl "
Then eftly and sweetly sounded forth the I
matin chimes, blending their holy music with I
tbe anguished cries of the bereaved mother. I
In the midst of her sorrow, she heard the bell's j
jjweet harmony, and, leaving her sleepless J
couch, walked forth into the refreshing air. I
Morning was breaking cold and gray over the
earth, and the stars were growing pale at the
approaching step of the monarch of the day. I
lowly walks the mourner through the yet I
leeping woods, whose flowers arc folded in I
filence, and whose birds give forth no carols.
She reaches the antique church and enters the
sacred door. A mysterious light light that I
la almost Ehade is brooding over the holy I
aisles, clothing in shadowy garments the pale 1
images of departed so.mts; wrapping in a mantle I
of dimness the carved sepulehres; throwin- I
strange gleams over tho tall whilo columns;
- W I
and embracing, with pale arms, cross and pic-
ture, and antique shrine. In the midst of this
mysterious light kneel a silent company; each
head is bowed on tho clasped bauds, and no J
sound is heard save a deep, far distant mur- I
muring, like the voice of tho mighty wind
when it passes through the leaves of the dark, j
cM piucs, dwelling in some dim. solemn woods, j
Suddeuly every head is lifted, and the mourn- I
cr sees in that vast company friends who had
been sleeping long ages in the "silent tonib.-
All were there again ; the friends of her cloud
less childhood, who went down to death's cold
chambers in all their stainless lcauty, sinking
into the grave as pure as tho snow-flake that
fal!3 to the earth. And there was tho sister of
her home and heart, tho tried friend of so-
row shaded hours, who, in dying, left a mighty
void that time could never fill. And there
were the "mighty dead," they whose footsteps,
when living, tracked tho world with light
light that now shed a halo over their" graves,
And there wcro tho meek, patient ones of earth,!
pale martyrs to sorrow who struggled hopeful-
l through the dim vapors that surround tho
world, and met as a reward the ineffable bright- J
nessol heaven. They were all here, all who J
had passed from earth amidst a fond tribute of J
tears and regret. " - ' I
All were here save two, those two the most I
dearly loved among Iho precious company of
the dead; and wildly scanning the pale group,
the mother called aloud as she missed her chil
dren : "Oh, my sons 1 my sons ! would that I
could see them but once again 1"
Then arose a loud voice, aud it said : "Look
to the eat;" and the weeping mother looked.
Oh! dreadful sight! there, by the sacred al
tar, rested a block and a fearful wheel. Stretch
ed on these dreadful instruments of doom, in
the coarse garb of the prison, wrestling fierce
ly with death in its most awful form, wero two
poor youths ; and in their wan countenances,
where crime and grief had traced their fearful
march, tho mother recognized her lost sons.
Dismayed, heart-sick, despairing, she rno
tionlesa stands; and the doep silence is again
broken by a voice speaking these words:
-"Mourner, whose every tone is a murmur at
Heaven's will, .vhose every expression , is a

murderer touched it, the wounds would com

acted upon, and, sayes a correspondent of the

shortly afterwards committed suicide by hang

temptations in his path endangering his ruin
