I was never a man of feeble

of either human or elemental
strife, upon which 1 have not

ring. 1 have stood -in the front
of the battle, when the swords
were gleaming aud circling a-
round me like fiery serpents in

wind was rending its oaks from
its rocky cliffs, and scattering
them piece-meal to the clouds.
1 have seen these things with a
swelling soul, that knew not,
that recked not danger; but
there is something in the thun

it was a morning in the month
- 1 a
of August. The little girl had
been passing some days at my
father's house, ami she was now
to return home. Her path lay
across the fields, and 1 gladly
became the companion ot her
walk. 1 never knew a summer
morning more beautiful aud still.
Only one little cloud was visi
ble, and thdt seemed as pure
and white, and peaceful, as if it
had the incense smoke ot some
burning censer of the skies.
The leaves hung silent in the
woods, the waters in the bay
had forgotten their undulations;
the flowers were bending their
heads as if dreaming ol the rain
bow and dew, and the whole at
mosphere was of such a soft and
luxuriant sweetness that it seem
ed a cloud of - roses scattered
down by the hands of a Peri,
from .the afar off gardens of pa
radise. The green earth and
the blue sea lay abroad in their
boundlessness, and the peaceful
sky bent over aud blessed them.
The little creature at my side
was in a deliriurn,of happiness,
and her clear, sweet voice came
ringing upon the air as often as
she heard the tones of a favor

the day continued until near

the indication of an approach
ing tempest was manifest. O
ver the summit of a mountain,
at the distance of about a mile,
the ' folds of a dark cloud be
came suddenly visible, and at
the same instant a hollow tpar
came down upon the winds as if
it hail been the sound of waves
in a rocky cavern. The cloud
rolled out like a banner unfold
ed upon the air, but still the at
mosphere was as calm, and the
leaves as motionless as before;
and there was not even a quiver
among the sleeping waters, to
tell ot the coming hurricane.
To escape the tempest was
impossible. As the only resort
we fled to au oak that stood at
the foot of a tall and rugged
precipice. Here we stood and
gazed almost breathlessly upon
the clouds marshaling them
selves like bloody giants in the
ky. 1 he thunder was not fre

fearful, that the young creature
who stood by me, shut her eyes
convulsively, and thing with
desperate strength to my arm,
and shrieked as if her heart
A few minutes, and the storm
was upon us. Din ing the height
of its fury, the little girl lifted
her finger towards the precipice
that towered over us. 1 looked
and saw an amethystine peak,
and the next moment the clouds
opened, the rocks tottered to
their foundations, a roar like

the air, and 1 felt myself blind

consciousness returned, the vi

deep tones of the thunder cloud
came in fainter murmurs from
the eastern hills.
I arose and looked trembling
ly and almost desirously around.
She, was there-r-the dear idol of
my infant love stretched out
upon the green earth. The
handkerchief upon her neck
was slightly rent, and a single
dark spot upon her bosom told
where the pathway of her death
had been. At firatl clasped her
to my Dreast with a cry ot ago
ny, and then laid her down and
gazea upon her face almost with
feelings of calmness. Her
bright dishevelod hair clustered
sweetly around her brow; the
look of tenor had faded from
her lips, aud infant smiles were
pictured there; the red rose
tinge upon her cheeks was love
ly as in life, and as I pressed it
to my own, the fountains of tears
were opened, and I wept as if
my heart were waters. 1 have
