How Boou We Forget.
How soon we forget I
The glory of the summer fades,
ine dead leaves rustle in the glades,
And mournfully the lone wind Brieves,
Our memories are fallen leaves,
inoiign green and rair but yesterday,
Now swept away.
How soon we forget I
The kiss of one who left our side,
Will it remain nil even tide,
Unsullied, unforgotten still ?
Though fairer skies may dawn to fill
Our days? loo.rrail to hide ileacay 1
It fades away.
How soon we foriret I
Vain dreamer I when the year shall keep
11s glories, mia lis winter sleep ;
When thnt we name as love shall blcom
A little while above our temli.
For fame hope thou leaf of to-day-Soon
Oh I hark, I hear an angel sing,
While coming through the rye,
Oh I let me kiss him for hi ma,
Then take me bome to die.
Oft in the stilly night I roam,
With Mary of Argyle,
Down to the cottage by the sea,
To call on Annie Lyle.
Twinkling stares are laughing love,
Upon the poor old slave,
Ben Bolt he left sweet Alice,
For a lite on the ocean wave.
O Gentle Annie you must wear
The Jockey hat and feather,
Bell Brandon married Billy Grimes,
We'll bury them together.
O kiss me quick and go my love,
Your hair is turning gray,
O who will care for mother now,
Unless 'tis old Old Dog Tray.
Tis but a litlle ffded Mower,
That grew in the Hazel Dell,
Come where my love lies dreaming,
My bluceyed Little Nell. m
I'd offer thee Hiis hind of mine,
For a Good-bye at the door,
The Girl I left behind me,
Found the ring my mother wore.

I'll hang my harp on a willow tree,
While I say the Maiden's prayer,

Was beautiful isle of the sea ;

Of the sour apple tree.

A Touching Story.
Tho Hun. Alexander II. Stephens, of
Georgia, in a recent address at a meet
ing in Alexandria, for the benefit ot
the Orphan Asvluin and Free School
of that city, related the following an
"A poor little boy, one cold night,
with no home or roof to shelter his
head, no parental or maternal euar-
lian or guide to protect or direct him
in his way, reached at nightfall the
house of a wealthy planter, who took
him in, fed him aud lodged him, and
?ent him on his way with his blessing
These kind attentions cherri-d his heart
and inspired him with fresh courage to
battle with the obstacles of lite. Year
rolled round ; Providence led him on
and he reached tho legal profession ;
his host died ; the cormorants that
pray on the substance of man had
formed in conspiracy to st t from the
widow her estates. She sent for th
nearest counsel to submit her case to
him and that counsel proved to be the
orphan boy long before welcomed and
entertained by the deceased husband
The .-titnulus of a warm and tenacious
gratitude was new added to the ordina
ry motive connected with the proles
sion. He undertook her cause with a
will not easy to be resisted ; he gained
it; the widow's cstat'S were secured to
her in perpetuity, and Mr. Stephens
added, with an emphasis of emotion
that sent an elcctic thrill throughout
the house, that boy stands before you !''

(lie of our newspapers up there:
"In the oflieo of'a Wisconsin journal
ther" i- a compositor who sets type so
rapidly that the friction of his move
ments fuses the leaden emblems in his
stick, making them solid sterotype
plate. The only way to preveut this is
to have his case submerged in water;
aud the rapidity of his motions keeps '
the water boiling and bubbling so that
eggs have been boiled in his space-box.
Pipes lead from the bottom of his case
to a boiler in the press-room and tho
steam generated by the fast compos it
or's motion runs the power press. In
one dav he set so much that it took all
hinds, editor and devil, three weeks to-
read proof, and it wasn't his good day
fur setting type, either."
That fellow would have to do a
rent deal better than that, or he
would starve in the Evening Express

po.-iturs, either of whom could give him.

to our fastest compositor than a snail
is to a streak of lightning. This com
positor of ours has a fire-proof case
made with boxes which hold each ten
bushel of letter, and when he begins

of gun-powder disappear when you
touch a redhot poker to them. He

A fleuiitirul Idea.
Away among the Allegauies, there
is a spring, so small that a single ox,
in a summer's day, could drain it dry.
It steals its unobtrusive w:iy among
the hills, till it spreads out in the beau
tiful Ohio. Thence it stn t. 'lies away
a thousand miles, leaving on its banks
more than a hundred villages and
cities and many a cultivated farm, and
bearing half a thousand steamboats.
Then joining the Mississippi, it streateh
es away an I away some twelve hun
dred miles more till it falls into the
emblem of eternity. lit is one of the
great tributaries of the ocean, w hich

Truth iu Brief.
Anybody can soil the reputation of
any individual, however pure and
chaste, by uttering a suspicion which
his enemies will believe and his friends
never hear of. A puff of idle wind can
make a million of seeds of the thistle
and do a work of mischief which the
husbandman must labor long and hard
to undo, the floating particles being too
trifling to be seen and too light to be
stopped. Such are the seeds of slander
o ei.sily sown, so dificult to be gather-
ered up, and yet so pernicious in its
fruits. I hey know that many a wind
will catch up the plague and beconio
poisoned by their insinuations, without
ver seeking the antidote. No repu
atioii can refute a sneer, or any hu
man i-Ud prevent luiselilet.
