SCENES IN LIFE'S DRAMA.
It is near the close of a beautiful day
in Spring; a few fleecy clouds float la
zily through the wide expanse of blue;
the sun shines bright and warm, and
the light breeze gently waves the green
lolinge of the trees. Two little pirls
are returning home from school. The
eldest, a sweet, modest looking child,
walks soberly along, but the little one,
with her hand clasped in that of her
sisler, dances by her side,and the pleas
ant words and merry laugh come from
a heart as lree and joyous as the warb
It is evening now. The last rays of
the setting sun have disappeared behind
the western hill-tops the last tinge of
purple and gold is fast lading away,
and here and there a more ambitious
star has already peeped forth; 'tis the

and loving kiss so won my heart but
the merry laugh has erased she lays
moaning in her little bcd,delirious with

watch by her tiny couch. The morn

all fair and bright,, as if sorrow and
sickness had never entered the world.
It dawns upon a mournful croup path-

lurnishecl. 1 he physician holds the
fair white hand of the little snfiVrer
within his own; now he gently lays it
by her side, and sadly murmuring, she
is dead lie' turns away.
Again I gaze upon that lifeless form
it is robed for burial the soft brown
hair is now parted upon her pure angel
ic brow, and those bright, sparkling blue
eyes are now closed forever. Hark!
The slow toll of the bell peals out a
requiem for the dead. Seven brief
summers had that tender bud been nour.
ished, then like the little llowret which
in the morning flourishes, and ere it is
noon fades away, had she passed from
Again the bell is tolling, and I see a
band of mourners wending their way to
the village church-yard. A neat white
paling encloses the sacred spot, a few
trees planted by loving hands adorns the
place, where are laid the remains of
parents, brothers, sisters and friends,
and here the widowed mother leaves
her youngest born, the little sunbeam
that nestled so lovingly in the hearts ol
those who loved her, and filled their
home with oy and happiness. O! how
sadly mother and sister miss $eir dar-N

now an angel in Heaven,and soon they
shall meet her there.
The curtain drops and wiping tears
from my eyes, I gazed upon another

merry feet are dancing to lively strains
of music, is a fair and beautiful girl,

BY WILLIAM RODDERICK LAWRENCE.
Among the "Portfolio Leaves" from
the pen of Martha Haiues Butt one
of the most popular story writers we
have we lind the following pretty
sketch, entitled "The two Portraits,"
which are indeed correct delineations
of the originals, often to be met with
in our journey through life, though sad
the reality may seem, yet change is
stamped on all things.
The fairest soon grow old, the old soon pass
The two Portraits.
Look in yon sequestered nook par
tially shaded by rich curtains; there
hangs a portrait. A lovely creature ot
eighteen summers there smiles upon the
canvass; her bright eyes speak a lan
guage of themselves; the slightly par
ted lips is the resting place of a smile.
Upon her beautifully moulded neck no
gem is seen, for it was gem enough ot
itself. A light drapery is thrown around
her lorm, but partially concealing it
from view: the sylph-like grace and
syinmelry was not intended to be hid
den. That Portrait! it unfolds a tale
of other days; it speaks of the time
when youth uhed Us lustre and beauty
upon that being those eyes! their
brightness upon all who met their gaze.
i hose lips! Irom them came the sweet
est melody, the softest strains of music.
" 1 hose cheeks! fairest roses nest ed
there and blushed upon many who
sought the hand of the possessor. Those
fairy lingers! oft did they lightly touch
the guitar, the echo of which was borne
to many a listening ear. Ah! that
portrait speaks a language low and sad.
"JLet us go into another nook, the
arm-chair is in its accustomed place-1-
one is mere seated wnose brow is deep
ly funowed by the plow of time. The
smile hath gone! care sits there en
throned; the lips are no longer smiling;
the neck is concealed by massive dra
pery; that form lias not its wonted round
ness and beauty; the voice hath lost its
music; the rose that once bloomed upo
on the cheek is withered; the fingers
have grown stiff with age; the step is
slow and leeble. Sadly hath time al
tered that portrait. The aged one
gazes upon the beauty which adorned
her past years, and sighs, But her
youth had forever fled.
"Life presents, indeed, two portraits:
one is all joy and brightness, but O! the
last one is sadly, sadly changed.'

exclaimed Lena Ellington, to her fath

heat of the noisy city.
' "Yes, it is very pretty;" said Mr.

And so Mildrum Cottage was sold.
All the neighbors knew it, and were

Demolition of Gibralter.
A pamphlet has just appeared at Pa
ris, attributed to the eminent journalist,
Girardin, in which it is declared, that,
it the freedom of the seas and the peace
of the world are to be secured, Uibral
ter ought to be dismantled as well as
Sebastopol. The idea seems never lo
have struck any one heretofore. But
having once been suggested, its justice
What Sebastopol is, in fact, to the
Black Sea, that Uibralter is, and even
more, to the Mediterranean; and as the
Mediterranean is larger than the Eux
ine, much the greater is the necessity
for destroying Uibralter. The old
adage says: "It is a bad rule that will
not work both ways." England,vhen
she began the present war, never sup
posed that the arguments she brought
forward in favor of the demolition of
Sebastopol would be turned against her
pet possession, Uibralter. Yet Sebas
topol has one argument at least, in fa
vor of its preservation, which the Brit
ish lortress of Uibralter has not, tor it
is built on Russian territory, while
Gibralter is a thousand miles from Eng
land, and erected virtually on Spanish
Whatever may be the case with
France, there is a deal of inconsisten

war. We have no desire to palliate
the aggressive policy of Russia. But
Ure at Dntain, tor nearly two centuries,
has been advancing as steadily in the
Mediterranean as Russia has been ad
vancing towards Constantinople. She
has seized, within that period, not on
ly Gibralter, but Malta and the Ionian
Islands, so that, in the event of war,
she has fortified harbors all over that
sea, at which to refit her fleets, an ad
vantage which gives her a naval su
premacy there over any one Mediterra
nean power, if not over all combined.
Nor has she ever relused a new post in
that important inland ocean, if we ex
cept Candla, and that was merely of
fered to her as an eventuality, and not
as a territory already in possession.
England,' in a word,has successfully
obtained that preponderance at sea over
other European powers, which Russia
is charged now with aiming at on land.
Is it astonishing, therefore, that en
lightened men should begin to say,
"Take the beam out of thine own eye?

Up to the preaent time it has given the
Know Nothing movement a staunch
and faithful support; but in its issue of
April 14, it holds the followinglanguage
which we reproduce ' with pleasure, as

"In many places, instead of nomina

was defeat, where victory was supposed

only excuse offered for this act was that,
according to report, there were fifty or
more ballots in tne box than names on

and there is no Uoubt that it was known
to be untrue, and that it was put in cir

they are altogether necessary to the on

any means they should be shoved on Col
