The white man sat at the close of day, Weatli tlo* vine rImde at his door, Wat* hiny (lie bright light fade uvvay Far In I and vnlh y o’er ; He in us* il hut not on the purple shade Which in tin valley slept. Nor rhi'iigl t *»f the g. Men Hood of light Y\ tiicli the western hills enwrapt. He looked upon ripening fields of grain, That -wiv’d in 'lie evening breeze, I,ik ivavi s whit h, when the sunset sinks, SSwell i.v. r tin- Western seas ; On ve-dant lav n and wooded knoll, All Inll«* d in (lie mellow light, He gaz’d w tth .hi » ye. which seem’d to say, ’Tis u sw eetly pleasant sight. Ay. it was t-. him a pleasant sight; F«*r those fit Ids ot golden grain Shull ere long swell his ample hoard Wnh ih** yellow gold of gain : And ilic verd nl fields and shadowy wood, \\ Inch the. bu s . f sunset dyed, Were all hi- own ; ’tis no wonder, then, He should size on them with pride. Ad -wii the distant river’s tide, A palace of the wave Gave to the wind her banners gay, While faintly swelling stave • Stole through tin* twillghi from her deck, A sweet, familiar strain. Which many a glorious deed has blent, Columbia, with thv name. lie thought of the deeds his sires had done, \\ hen broke was the tyrant’s chain— He thought ot the freedom their blood had won On many a battle plain— He thought of is c. untry’s wealth and power, Far felt over land and sea ; And he said in his heart, Oh ! native land, I well may lie proud of thee. lie lean’d him back in his easy chair, With drowsy, half shut eye. While the balmy evening silent drew In her dusty mantle nigh. As thus he sat, a wondrous change Came hill aim valley o’er. And all to him seem’d wild and strange, Till lie knew the scene no more. What form stalks forth in the twilight dim? What shadow is on the air? . Whence comes that unknown visitor, Mysterious—silent—theie ? lie bore him with a noble mien, And conquering hero’s tread, And a single eagle feather graced Like a plume his lolty head. The blanket nvrap’d round the tawny breast, With an air a king might own— The yellow deer skin moccasin, With jewel’d heads bestrown— The raven lock—the eye of night, The dark brows underneath— And the wampum belt around him girt, Proclaim him an Indian chief. Like ascolptur’d hero of marble stone, By seme ruin’d temple grey, Sublime ’mid pillars broken—prone— In the moonbeam’s doubtful ray He stood, as motionless and stern— With a look ns high and bold, And a port majestic as wa» e’er Carved out in sculpture old. With arm outstretch’d he pointed where Fair fields so late had lain, All glowing beneath the sunset’s rays, And rich with the golden grain. Lo ! leafy forests, tall and old, Eushadow’d all the land ; And wild and free, by bill and stream, lloam’d the Indian hunter band. They chased the deer ’nenthlhe arches high, Or rous’d from his slumbering lair The snarling wolf, the panther dread, Or the black and surly bear. Their drink drip’d down from the old grey rock, Their couch was the bear skin rude, And bv the wigwam fires they slept, In Nature’s solitude. The sti«ngcr came to the hunting grounds, From over the western sen; He trampled upon their fathers’ graves, Beneath the greenwood tree; His axe was heard in the forest still, Kinging out in the grand old wood— They were savage men, with fiery hearts— They sought redress in blood. But th* invader’s rifle tliin’d their ranks ; They were brave, hut they fought in vain ; And tiie red mail’s bones were left to blanch On hill side and battle plain. Oh ! say not that *lwas bravely done, Tell me not of the Indian’s crime— Though h's hands were steep’d in thy brother’s blood, Pale stranger, the fault was thine. Slowly, slowly, it paled away. That vision of other Jays. Tint by tint, as from the skies Had faded the sunset’s rays. Dim grew the form of the phantom chief, While his stern, reproachful rye, Gleam’d brighter, until its light was changed To a star in the western sky. But other forms came ilowly on, Sad men of a darker hue— \\ hy look they with such downcast eyes ? Why walk they two and two? List! ’tis the sound of the cruel lash !j They are slaves unto market driven. Look ! they are women marching there In chains, ’neath the starry heaven ! Oh ! this was the saddest sight of all; Not even the battle plain, Though drench’d in blood,and cover’d o’er With the livid,-ghastly slain, Begets such sorrow in my breast ; For ihe dead can never know What degradation, toil, and shame. The whip and chain bestow. ♦ * ******* ’Twas a dream—a dream, and nothing more— He said, »h it dim’d away ; But the smile was gone from the dreamer’* )ip> Like the g< Iden light of day, Which gilded so late the western hills, And a shade of gloom o’ercast His sadden’d eye and thoughtful brow', As into lit* home he pass’d. From the Saturday Evening Post. IS HE FAT ? A Ghost Story. Great is the effect, sometimes, of sudden fright on the human system. Wonderful chinges and strange transformations have been the result. During the Revolutionary War,a young British officer, in South Carolina, barely effected his escape from the edge of the American sword, into u neighboring swamp ; and came out next morning, to use his own words, “ as gray as a badger.” It is related of a bird catcher on the Western coast of Ireland, that on being let down a rope on the side of a tremendous cliff, or precipice, of probably some hundred feet in height, to an eagle's nest, in attempting to defend himself against the old eagle with a broad sword he had taken with him, he cut the rope he was suspended by almost in two ; and such was the effect upon him of the sudden alarm, that he was drawn up to the top with his head al most entirely w hite, although it was perfectly black when let down ! Byron, in the com mencement of his “ Prisoner of Chillon,” makes an allusion to such circumstances : “ My lieaii is gray, but not with years; Nor grew it white Inn single night, As men’s have done from sudden fear8.,, Transformations equally as wonderful have been affected in disease. Persons, bed-ridden for years, have, on a house taking fire, or some such sudden alarm, risen from their beds, walked, and made their escape from danger; and remained convalescent. Con nected with something of this sort is the story which we nre going to relate. We must first introduce to the reader two thieves, or robbers. It is frequently among thieves as it is among the professional and working classes of society :—They have their department—their "line”—of stealing, to which they generally adhere. For instance, one man is a highway robber, and seldom steals in any other way—another is a pickpocket— a third, steals horses—a fourth, is a grain stealer—another, a sheep stealer, and so on.— To this last class belouged our two men re ferred to ; but not content with robbing the living, they robbed also the dead—were rob bers of “ church yards,” stripping the dead of the burying clothes in which they were enwrapped. It was a mild and pleasant evening in Autumn. The sun had sunk behind the Western horizon, and withdrawn his last rays from the woods and hills—and— “ Now came still evening on with twilight gray the hour when the indistinct vision of the su perstitious, makes the inanimate forms of j "dumb nature” take the shapes of ghosts; and the imagination conjures up spectres from the dimly seen objects ai onnd. There was a coun try church and church yard ; and a few hun dred yards distant a public inn, or tavern, on the road leading by. Our two thieves had just completed the robbing of a grave, when one of them, wrapping himself in the white shroud, to avoid a detection of his person, took his seat in the church door, fronting the road, to await the return of the other, who had gone to a neighboring fold to steal a sheep. It was just at this juncture that a foot traveller came by, and seeing by the light of the moon and twilight the white object in the door, naturally enough mistook it for a ghost ; and made for the inn with almost breathless speed. On ar riving, he declared that he had actually seen a ghost—“there was no mistake”—there it sat in the door, as white as snow. Put the com pany at the inn happened to be generally too sceptical in such matters, to give his tale that credence he thought it deserved; when he de clared that lie would go back, if they would accompany him, and convince them. Put lie found them equally reluctant here. No one who could go, could be prevailed upon to go with him. A rheumatic invalid, who was so disabled by the disease as to be unable to walk, declared he would go if he could. Tho difficulty, however, was soon obviated, by the man taking him along with him. upon his back. On they went, the man with his bur den, until they came in sight. Sure enough, there it was in the door! Curiosity impelled them up tolerably near, when the shrouded rogue took them to be his companion return ing with a sheep on his back. “Is he fat ?" asked he, in a low tone of voice. No answer being returned, the question was repeated in a louder tone, "Is he fat r” No reply aga;n, "IS HE FAT?" exclaimed the fellow, with energy and emphasis, becoming impatient at the silence of his supposed companion. This was enough. "Fat orlean, you may have him,’’ exclaimed the traveller, and dropping the in valid, away he scampered back to the inn, as fast as his feet could carry him. Put to the astonishment of the company, the rheumatic man returned almost as soon. The sudden fright had made a cure of him, and given him the use of his legs again, ■which, as faT as we know, he ever afterwards retained. Mutiny. The American Consul at Barbadoos has senthome to Norfolk, Va. by the brig Noble, Capt. Booth, live seamen for mutiny on board brig Sarah Ann, of Gloucester, Mass,, which vessel, on her passage from Surinam to Bos ton, loaded with sugar ana molasses, was compelled to put into Barbadoes, the crew refusing to do duty.
