A lovely valley where the flourishing village
of W now stands, in 1G was occupied

Wht is Thouglu 1
In childhood an imperfect gleam,
A summer bower, a moonlight dream,
Glimpses of some far-shinning stream,
A rosy "wreath, the blessed beam
That dwells hi, mothers' eyes.
In youth an urn brimm'd with delight,
Sweet thronging fantasies of light, . .
Meek eyes with love's own radiance bright,
Soft music on a summer night,.
Hope budding into joy.
In manhood a benighted shore ;,
With wrecks of bliss all scattered o'er, '"
Dark .swelling doubts, fears scorn'd before
A pirii wither'd at the core,
A sea of storm and strife. , ,
Jn sge a calm undazzled eye,
Living in worlds of memory : " ; .
Low-breathed thanks for love on high,
A patient lunging fur the sigh . 1
That wafts it into rest,
Come et Hie Hear. -
Come, let me hear in that soft voice"
One note of joy, one cheering lone, . .fJi
To hid 'this sadden'd soul rejoice, .
Nor feel so desolate and lone;
Yet if a change is o'er thy heart.
Or coldness in thy sjar-like eye,
I'd say 'twer better ve should part,,, j
Arid part forever you and I. "' i 5
know 'lis madness e'er again
To hue what ne'er can be mine own;
Tor hopealas! Indeed'is vain,
And youth's fond sunnv dream is 'flown; 5
I feel the bitter tear-drop start,
l g'adly hail the hour to die
Hut still 'tis better far to part;
And part forever you and I.
by a circle of cone-topped wigwams, before one
of which, at the close of a sultry afternoon, sat
a son of the forest, whose girdle of scalps and
hieroglyphic marks told that he was a warrior
and chief of high honor. His sinewy arm held
forth a string of beads, whilo his piercing eye
looked into those of a young female who. eager
ly sprang forward on seeing the baubles. Grasp
ing the treasure with a laugh of joy, and twi
ning them in her hair, she bounded away like!
a young fawn, tu join her companions.
On the hill side near by, stood a well-formed,
fair faced youth, in the garb of a huntsman,
leaning on his gun. Through an opening in
the trees ho had been an unseen witness to
what had just passed, and as he gazed after her
who seemed a bird escaped from Paradise, he
shouldered his rifle and with an apparently
wearied step approached the bpot where the
1 chief still sat, who sceiiig him. asked :
j Whence comes the pale fafce--what seeks
j he of the red man ?"
"Food and rest," replied the other;- "three
days ago I left Shawutut, with a hunting' party;
while in search of 'game, 1 separated from, and
being unable to find them, or my way out of the
forest. 1 have since wandereu about, ant was

A certain young lawyer of the New York
bar, whose ehm btars a strong resemblance to
the goat species, and tinder whose, arm a huge
j bundle of paper is invariably placed, took pas

Hudson river steamboats. After the removal
of the-tea-table a number of passengers in the
cabin entered i rile a conversation which termi-

As they approached the rough altar, an Indian
ni3id appeared before them ; fixing her, dark
eyes on tlie female, .in a warning voice she said
to hor, 4 Wed him not ! or you are. cursed. On
his soul lies the crime of , a broken heart ;' and
turning to him, added, " William Raymond, the
Violet Eye will be upon you, we' meet again"
and like a mysterious t-pirit she glided from
Treating the occurrence a a maniac's intru

tones ol threatening evil long rang in tlie cars C0UIlt fiances of rannv were not easily distiii
of the wedded pair
Nearly two years, and the bright rays of hope
had dispelled, the fearful cloud that dimmed the
bridal day. The savage inhabitants rinding
their game dispersed, and themselves driven
from their early hbines and the graves of their
fathers, ever and anon gave evidence of spirits
panting for revenge.
At the cloe of.a. batlle in which many hun
dreds of the Indian race were slam, one stood
