How lonely, how disconsolate. There was
no joyous lace 10 smile a welcome; there
was no soft melodious voice to beguile 'he
evening hours away. For a 'vhile he gave
up to solitude and eoirow ; then came forth
into the world's gavitipsas if to drown in
mirth the deep heait sorrows.
It was a beautiful evening. I sat alone
in my room, and 1 confess my thoughts were
sad ; thoughts of loved and lost come to
mind, and the pure sweet inicge of Alice was
among them. The door vas suddenly thrown
open. and the sparkling, beauiiful Kale en

A, this state of sadness and misery he
sought in his wine rup that forgetfulness he
could not obtain elsewhere, yet his memory
returned, and agnin and again he sought its
sparkling brim to drown his recollection.
And poverty came, slowly creeping on.
The splendid mansion was sold, drinking
and gambling did it ; and only until wretch
edness and bodily misery aroused him, did he
awake to his degraded situation. Kale's fath

daughter to leave her husband, and again
return to her childhood's home; yet the proud
woman w ho had been the means of all this

Home! To see home is to wish of the
seaman no stormy seas and lonely watch.
Home is the wish of the soldier, and tender

jewelled lustre ttasii and tucker among gor

and borne on the wings ol tancy over niter

home, and hears the ljrk singing above his
father's fields, and sees his (air haired boy
biother, with light foot and chi Id-hood's glee
chasine the butleifly by his native stream.
And in his best hours, home, his own sinless
home, a home with his father above that
slarrv sky, w ill be '.he wish of every Uiris-

that by this repeal slavery may now go into

look the important fact that slavery, as an
institution, is kept or rejected as it is profit

of climate, which forever prevents the black

of latitudes where his labor ceases to be
