From a dark cloud'9 breast a rain drop fell, 1.11 a grateful summer shower; ' Through the tangled leaves of the vm^-ehid 0 s:!i, "iiUi.iiiutnj '? i** yiwis" l II F (Mi Till it rested at last in the opening bell, . Of a little shaded flower. Then the sun looked forth, and his gladning beam, Soon drank the shower dew ups He smiled on'the mountain, the vallfcy, and stream But he did not kiss with his waryi> bright gleam The drop in the blossoms's cup. 'How sad is my fate!' the flowret sighed, With the glittering weight qppress^d; 'My sisters smile in their graceful pride, While 1 am condemned this load to hide Within my trembling breast!' ? lien she bowed her head on her fragile stem, And slept through the long Still night; But when she awoke, the prisoned gem Shone like a glorious diadem As it flashed in the mornitig light! , The scorching sun at the noontide hour Looked down on the blossoms gay; They drooped and paled 'neath his withering power, All save the little shaded flower, And she quailed not beneath his ray. Then to glisten afar in the rainbow's dye, He bade the drop depart; But the flower looked up with a trusting eye, Though the dew no m6re in her breast might lie, It had freshened the life at her heart. And is it not thus in adversity's hour, When the soul is with grief oppress'd Our spirits droop 'neath misfortune's power, And we nurse like the little shaded flower, A sorrow in the breast ? A nd may we not hope, when our grief is fled. That a stronger faith will be given ? And the tears which our burdened hearts have shed Shall form, when the night of gloom is sped, A rainbow of hope in heaven? CHOICE READING.

TIIE PICKPOCKETS. A CASE IN REAL LIFE. ' 'None are all evil?quickening round his heart, One manly leeling would not yet depart.' We have so frequently noticed cases of individual* convicted of serious crimes, who neverlhelfesjrirWfe not at all guilty, but possessed redeeming qualities?that we have often felt legretat the harsh judgment of (he world, and at the little effort which is made to win back the misguided, the fallen, and the lost! How many might be saved by the exercise of kindness, sympa thy, and encouragement, who, neglected, and denounced, soon abandon all hope, be lieve themselves cut off from all society and the virtuous portion of mankind, and plunge deeper and deeper into the ways of crime! How many of the poor wretches who are dragged before our criminal courts charged with petty offences, misdemeanors, thefts, and other errors of poverty, despair and intemperauce; are the unfortunate chil of neglect, want and bad example?have never been taught the brightness and the beauty of a better course, have never en joyed the benefits of moral counsel and friendly advice?but have been outcast, and abandoned since early childhood ! How few, too, of our philanthropists think it worth while to pay attention to these err ing children of humanity, to employ coun sel, or in any way to investigate the farts ?if their respective cases. They are doom ed from the first. Conviction and sentence speedily follow their arrest,'no voice is heard to plead in their behalf, no eye mois tens as judgment is pronounced, and no heart softens as they are borne away in cus tody of the officers of the law. Let us not be misunderstood. Crime .should he punished fully and adequately. In this course is the only safety of society. But we cherish the belief that there are few at least among the youthful offenders, who are utterly hardened?u ho have not within the bosom some germ of virtue, who would , not, if a hope were held out to them, gladly embrace it, and cheerfully turn from the error of their ways. But if one in tweny, could only thus be saved ! What a conso lation and what n blessing would such a result be to the benevolent and the Christ ian. , How in after life would they look back to iwv cuLft, .?d W. yy""*' '.**? 5"?0" W 'l>e upright, cases, ttofe, m which even the experienced in crim#, thuse who hire gone on from year to year, who having wandered away early, and have never been able lo recover the lost track of rectitude and duty, are never theless not utterly undone?-atill retain a portion of their belter nature, and cherish even amid their misdeeds, some faint glim menng of pnociple, of .virtue, #nd of troth. VVe may cite * caw in a n^ghboring city, e avip of which have be^n communicated 7 of uiuloobud We give the incidests exactly as detailed to us, and merely substitute assumed for real names as a rriMter of propriety. A highly respectable gentleman named Henderson, was robbed of his pocket book containing #60d. Ho raw the robbers, as he supposed-,two men?and pursued them In course of a short time they separated, and he was ccmpejled to direct his pursuits towards one. He succeeded in arresting hiqi. He charged him with the robbery ? but this the accused, Lawson, denied in the mpst earnest manner. He was tried, con victed, ancj committed to prison. While there, Mr. Henderson was waited npon by an individual of genteel appearance* who said that his name Was Edwards^ that he was a Jersey farmer, that he had known Law sota in his youth, ami was much attached to m" iHe e*prepsted a deep anxiety that he ljI? j avo'1' a ^sntence, and asked Mr. Henderson if he would assist in obtaining * ajelease, provided Edwards would insure him a return of the whole of the money.? Henderson listened with attention, reflect ed for n moment, thought there Was some mystery in the case, and finally agreed to meet-Edwards at the office of an attorney. The interview took place accordingly, but Henderson was mueh atruck with the altered appearance of Edwards. He seemed in many respects another man. At first he wore speckles and whiskers, and now he was without either. He scrutinized him with close attention, and finally became convinced that the pretended farmer was one of the ttvo pickpbckets-the one who hid escaped when he had pursued them.? He .said he was not in Philadelphia at the time. ^Hehderson nevertheless persevered, sat isfied in his own mind that he had made no mistake. Edwards was arrested and com mitted to prispn He was soot* after put upon hia trial, ai)d the circumstantial evi j dence being very strong, he was convicted. | His counsel, nevertheless, manifested great interest in his behalf, ahd made a strenuous effort to obtain a new trial. The matter was argued at great length before the Court, nut all 'that could be obtained at the mo ment, was a postponement of the decis sion. The counsel of the accused then visited New 1 ork, apd while there, saw eight re spectable citizens who stated that they were ready to swear that Edwards was in that city the time the robbery was committed. He examined the way bill of the cars, the day on which Edwards said he had entered New York, and found his name on the list of passenggm. He also examined the re turn way bill for the same day, and the name of Edwards was not there. On his return to the city of the robbery, he called upon the Prosecuting Attorney for the Com monwealth, and stated the facts we have de tailed. It was ascertained, however, that 011 more than one occasion. Edwards had changed his name, and the officer of the State asked-^?why such change ? Why in New York had he passed as John Edwards, and in another city as William Edwards ? In reply the accused said his bad character was the cause?that he was known and re garded as a pickpocket?and hence he was often compelled to resort to means of dis guise. The Attorney for the Common wealth then luquired, where he was to ob tain the money which he proposed to pay to Mr. Henderson, with the object of se curing the release of Lawson ? In reply Edwards said he would obtain it from a highly respectable gentleman of the city in which they were. "Who is that gentleman ?'? "Before I can answer that question I must obtain permission of my friend." His counsel confetred a moment with Edwarde, whereupon the latter exclaimed, i "1 think the permission may be obtained." And then, placing his hand upon his fore head, he paced the room for a few moments, and as the result of his reflection, exclaim ed :? uIt cannot be. It is impossible ; I have pledged my honor." ; Counsel. It is your only chance of avoid ing a sentence. (To be concluded.) McLTAN & KNOTT, HOOK BINDER S Penn.ilyvanin Avertur.
