YIELD NOT TO DARK DESTAIR
Hut thou one heart that loves thee.
In tbia dar' worU of care.
Whose gentle smile approves thee?
Yield not lo dark despair!
One roae, whose fragrant blossoma
Blooma but Tor thee alone;
One fond confiding bosom,
Whose thought are all thine ewnT
One gentle itar to guide thee,
Aud bles thee on thy way,
That e'en when storms betide thee,
Still lends its gentle ray?
One chrystal fountain springing
Within life'a deareat waste.
Whose water atill are bringing
Refreshment to thy taste f
One toneful voice to cheer thee,
When sorrow has distrest;
One breast when thou art weary,
Whereon thy head to rest?
Till that sweet rose is faded.
And cold that heart eo warm;
'Till clouds thy star ha shaded,
Heed not the passing storm.
'Till the kind voice that blest thee,
All route in death doth lie,
And the fount that oft refreshed thee.
To thee is ever dry
Thou hast one tie t bind thee,
To this dark world of care.
Then let no sorrow blind the

THE FTLE LADY!
A short story, lut a true one.
bt mrs. s. henperson:
Abeut ten years ago, a funeral
train swept through the wide avenue
of one of the most beautiful man
sions in the southern part of Mary
land. The tall poplars on either side,
stirred by a light breeze, bowed their
heads as though for the last time they
were paying a mournful obeisance to
the hearse that bore the mistress of
the villa to the grave. At the win
dow the curtains of which were
drawn asiJe, the pale face of a beau
tiful girl was seen. It was Maria, &
she watched with tearful eye the
mournful band that bore her mother
to the tomb. A few hours after this,
at night, a young man and maiden
were kneeling hand in hand, beside a
norrow hillock of fresh earth. They
were Marie Dunbar and Henry Bar
bour the orphan girl and her lover
and there, upon the dust lightly
riled UDon the dead mother's breast,
they prayed that Heaven would heal
their wounded hearts. That parent,
then cold and lifeless, on her death
bed had placed her daughter's hand
in Henry's and blessing them bade
him to be her guardian. Upon her
grave her dying words were recalled,
and Henry "vowed that while life was
his, he would never desert his beau
tiful Marie. Silently they rose from
that nairow mound, and thougn their
hearts were chastened with affliction,
and the fresh memories of the virtue
and affection of the iost one, they
trusted with all the buoyadV of
vouth to the future for joy ani hap
Marie Dunbar was wealthy, and
she placed the whole of her fortune
in the hands of her lover, who re
solved to invest it in property at the
South. In the section of the coun
try in which they resided, Marie had
no relatives, and it was finally deter
mined that Henry should visit the
South, and after he had established
himself they would be wedded.
With the promise for the hundredth
time that he would write to her twice
a week, Henry tore himself away
from his beautiful love, and after a
short voyage he arrived in New Or
leans. For a time every thing went
on smoothly, his prospects were bril
liant, and in the thought of enjoying
the luxuries of life in company with
Marie, a beautiful rainbow spanned
his vision of the future.
One evening he was induced by a
friend to visit one of the gaming ta
bles, licensed in the city, and with
very little difficulty he was persuad
ed to play a small amount. He threw
the dice and won, and being pleased
with the feverish excitement, which
gradually grew upon him, he tried
his chance and won again. Wine
was ordered, and to the gamester
wine is like pouring oil upon fire.
A large bet was offered, & scarce
ly knowinsr what he did, he took it
v up. He lost and then, and not till
then, he recollected that it was Ma-
rie's money that he was gambling a-
;t way. This thought almost madden-
he resolved to throw again in tne at-
- tempi to retrieve ms lunuue. tic
. . . --. II
diu so, ana lost, ana to ne wrai uu,
until he at last rushed out from the
, "hell a beggared and dishonest man.
i That night passed in misery. He re-
collected that he had. wronged the
'f confidence of the orphan girl; that
! ? they had knelt together on nor moth
er's grave; and every word then spo
Vt ken rose up and taunted him with the
V thought of wliat he was then, and
i twhat he was now. Goaded to des
jsration, he resolved to break the
last tie that bound him to honor, and
in an evil moment he forged a check ;
on a merchant in the city to a larjjef
amount. lie presented it to thn;
bank for payment and was delected !
and thrown into jail. His tri;il came
on at the criminal court, and there,
his guilt was made so clear that fie j
was sentenced to five years impris j
onment in the penitentiary, Ileavi-
ly ironed, he was placed on hoard thej
steamboat which was to convey himj
to Bnton Rogue. In the middle of
the night a plunge was heard and the
state room which the convict occu
pied was found empty. livery one
on board came to the conclusion that
he had thrown himself overboard &.
Marie was sitting alone in tier
chamber. She had been weeping,
poor girl; and in her lap lay her moth
er's miniature and one of Henry's
letters. .She had not heaad from him
for months, and his silence was the
darkest enigma that ever her young
heart tried to solve. Hc could not
be dead no. no! Like the w ife of
the gifted Raleigh, she believed tV.at
' Living or dead he would not tarry from hei."
At this moment a servant brought
her a letter, and a y:ng1e glance told
that it was from Henry. A glad cry
escaped her lips she hastily opened
it, and instead of the warm outpour
ings of a lover's heart, she real Hen
ry s confession of hisgunt! i ne ser
vants heard a shriek and when they
came in they found their mistress life
less on the floor.
For many weeks after, Marie
Dunbar was a maniac, and when she
recovered, her beauty was like tlu.t
of a I illy which had been crushed by
a storm. With a calmn2ss that sa
vored not of earth, she announced
her intention of quitting the place of
her birth forever. The old home
stead was sold, and the servants, ma
ny of whom had grown grey in the
service of her family, crowded a-
round her with tearful eyes, as she
bid them farewell. Again, and the
last time, Marie knelt down upon her
mother's crave. A prayer, akin to
His breathed in the cavden ol Gcth-
semane, went up to heaven, end the
orphan was alone with none out t'Ou
to shield her.
In the year 1837, when thousands
were torn away bv the hand of dis
ease, there was a Sister of Charity in
the city of Xew Orleans, whose ori
gin no one knew, but who was uni
versally beloved. Many a oeggareu
wretch in the hospital, in his last ng
onv, had breathed a prayer for tne
"pale lady," who. like an angel, had
so kindly relieved his wants. She
neversmi!ed; but a holy radiance
would sometimes overspread her
beautiful features, and, then, as she
turned up her deep Hue eyes to her
spirit s home above, si.e looKeu uhe
the being of another world. Some
said she carried in her bieat a bro
ken heart. She was never seen to
weep, but stili there was a sorrowful
shade on her countenance that spoke
of blighted dreams and the w reck of

The breeze flew by with ambrosia
wings, and as the dying ones inhaled
its passing fragrance, they thought
how sweet a thing it was to live in
health, and they remembered1 that
when they were young they loved
the fresh and blooming flowers.
Then they felt the sharp pangs dart
through their frames and cold dew
stood upon their foreheads, and the
grave seemed pleasant. The tink

them that one of oui number was no
The "palrlady" was passing by
the chamber where the poor outcast
lay, and the lamp in her hand threw
a strong gleam upon her features:
The sick man fixed his eyes upon her
retiring form, and, covering his face
with his hand, he murmured, "No,
no; it cannot be her." The lady
thought she remembered the voice,
and she trembled like an aspen. She
went back to the room whence the
sound proceeded, and looked upon
the patient; but his eyes were closed,
and she could not recognise him.
She laid her thin white hand upon
his temple, and the touch seemed to
revive him. He looked at her for a
moment and then the muscles of his
throat swelled, and his lips quivered
as though he tried to ipeak. A tear
coursed down his sallow cheek it
was thi last drop in the veil of sor
row, and it flowed for some bygone
memory. The "pale lady" took her
hand away, for though the outcast
was dead, yet his features assumed a

was standing beside the corpse
of HenrV P.ubour. Marie, the "pale
