Farewell !-we may not meet again
As we are partang now
I must my beating heart ristraiu -
Must vil my burning brow.
el, I must coldly learn to hide
One thoaght, all else above -
Must call upon my woumanu' pride
To hide nmy woman's love !
C'beek dreams I )Never may avow
Be free, be careless, cold Ia thou I
O, these tturs are tears of bitterness
Wruung from the breaking heart,
When two. blest in their tendernet.
Must learn to live -apart - :
But what are they, to that long sigh
That cold and ti'd despair,
That weight of was.ting agony
It must be mi, to bear ?
Methinks I should not thus repine,
If I had but one vow of throe.
I could torgive inconstancy
'To be one moment loved by thee !
With me thb. hope of life is gone
The sun of joy in set,
One w ish my soul still dwells npon
The wish it could forget.
I would forget that 1,,ok, that tone
My heart hath all too dearly known.
But who could ever yet efface
From menmry, love'a euduring trace.
All may revolt, all may cotoplaiu
But who is there ma.y break the chain !
Farewell '-- I shall not be to thee
More than a posuing thought,
But every ti noe aud lp;ce will be
W.t I thy reemlibrauce fraught:
Farewell ' wei h.atw nt ofteua nit
We may nt tweet .Ltin !
But on amy heart the seal is et
Love never sets in vain
Fruitless its constancy may te,
No chance, no change may turn from
ine who loid th'e wildly, well
But whose first litve vow breathed -
f tr. wvll !
Once out of the grounds. with a lone
breath of relief, I put my horse into the
swift, loping gallop to which he had been
The solitariness. and yet the hopefull
net;ts of that long ride ' The lonely roads
lay bare before rtoe in the white moon
light ; my horse's hbof. sonuided reg
ularly in the stillness; the only other
8 )untl was the occasin:al piping of some
bird of the rfight which Imade the still
ness, la ire marked.
At last I he.ra e awaret! that I was
approaclhing the camp to which my er
r;nd led me, and inmmediately after, my
horse wits stPis'ld by at picket, with a
su-ldeltlnecss that. apljarcel sipernatnr:d
to me, for I hal not at first see.t the ni:
Instanutv I heard, after down the line,
the quiok report of two or three muskets,
then siltence as peacefttl, as quiet as be
"Whatt is that firin ? '" I asked.
" I exptt it's somebodl y tiring on the
picket," lhe said inditferently.
I still sat listening, a vague alarm stir
ring at the d-piths of my heart.
In a moment, ,some potty othier came
huryiLig along, saying as he Ipassed his
coradlle. "Tomn, our captain's hit ! "
tenu piiedl out of sight. giving an iu
stant's stare at me as he went.
The soldier passed his hand acros his
eves and muttered, "Damu'm ! "then
turned his back on me.
Why did I not rideo onward? Why did
I linger in this camp of soldiers? I did
not know; I felt no sense of prescience or
of warning; I only did not wish to go just
Down in that flickering shadow of trees
I saw two men approachin', bearing cae -
frlly a wande~ man between (hem. I
,1oked at them with dilating eyes; as they
emerged into the clear moonlight, I saw
more distinctly the slight figmur,the bright
brown hair of thel man ther carried.
'Thea I know why I had Jiungered.
I slipped from my horse and went to
metet them, reaching him as they laid
hit dIown upon the ground.
Hie looked rp at tme as I k~wlt doin

"'Tlds it happiness." he whispered,
taking my haid :tad luttIg it on his
breast, where his heart was beating its
last thr nbs. "Now I know why I felt
that I must be brought to this spot to
die. They thought it was a whim, and
au did I."
The men stood back respectluly, leav
using two alone, with only the mouolight
between us.
I could not speak, I could only look at
him, knowing, realizing that in this last
inoment all that could have separated us
had droppld from him as a garvgent un
worthy of him.
"Ah! the path love pointed out was
the only right one," he said never for an
instant taking his eyes from mine.
"'All my soul?-all my love?" he mur
"AIl. Does not my own soul tell me ?"
I asked, with something of thepassionate
tenderness that I felt, my voice murmur
ing through tears that I could not shed.
He lay in silence a moment, then said:
"My property is nearly all lost, save a
few thousands deposited at the North. it
is willed to yu. Promise that you will
go North--t., New York. Here is the
address of my lawyer there." He put my
hand on an inside pocket of his coat
"Stay no longer in the South."
"I will not" I said. "I will go."
Another pRuse'-it was the last before
the eternal silence.
A sudden, flashing look of sweet pas
sion from the very deeps of his nature, a
whisper on ::ny lips, "I was coming to
,.laim you -anud the silence had settled
The report said that Captain Ralph
MJ.olyneux wad killed while examining the
outlpost, the light before the attaek.
It was the fortune of war; but do you
wonder that, with all I have to re

I did not gt back to the plantation.
After various 'delays I found means to

light of freedm and peace, I have

MAUIA Lo'uisx Pool.
By Mark Twain.
I never can ,iok at those periodical
slxrtr.uts in the +ialaxy magazine without
fiothng a wild, tmpestuous ambition to
be an artist. I have seen thousalnds and
thoulsanlds of pituros in lmy timo-e-ares
o them here and leagues of them in the
galleries of Eurow--but never any that
moved me as thi Galaxy portraits do.
There is the coortraii of Monsignore
Capel in the vcvember Galaxy ; now
could anythinig be sweeter than that'
And there was Bmnarck'.s, in the October
number ; who cj look at that without
being purer andb itr, rnger and nobler for
it ? And Thurlev Weed's picture in the
September tunuer : I would not have
died without seteg that, no, not for any
thing this world can give. But look
back still furtherpnd recall my own like
Iess al printed iqthe August Gallaxy
if I had been in ny grave a thousand
y ears when tha .pea:ed, I would have
got up and visitethe artist.
I sleep with athese portraits under
my pillow ever ght, so that I can go
on studying then as soon as the day
dawns isthe ioorug. I know them all
as thoronghly as i[ had made then my
self ; I know ever ine and mark about
them. Sometim when company are
present I shuile tportraits all up toge
ther, and then pic them out one by one
and call their nam , without referring to
the printing at bo ittom. I seldom
make a mistake- r, when I am caln.
I have had the ,rtaits framed for a
long time, waiti' till my aunt gpt
everything ready f, hanging the up in
the parlor. But one thing and then
another interferes, and as the thing is
delayed. Once ' they would have
more of the rso kind of light the"
needed in the attic. The old simapleton :
it isasdarkas a mb up there. But
she does nt know aything about art,
and so she has no 'rmcas fur it. WHeni
I ubowed Iher my " of the Fortific;
tions of Paris," she d it was rpbbi'ih.
Well. from nurni those ('a'-y po -
t:..uits i long, I ha comine at lst to have
4 tweet infatuation for art. I have a
Itesiaer now, and my enthneiasn contin
maily mad, tumultuously grows, as I
leem to Ue with more aul more facility
thi peael, brush, and graver. I am
sYinug under De Mellville, the house
ad portrait painter. [His name was
•Smith when he lived West.] He does
any kind of artist work a body wants,
khavtug a genius that is Universal, like
Micdmel Angelo. Resembles that great
arti t, in tait lThe back of his head is
like 'his, andV'"~t ears li& hat-brbn tfte l
, down on his nose to expose'it.' .
I have been stud'thg tminder De N ell
ville everal months now. The irst
month I painted fences, and gave general
satisfaction. The nextr month I white
waashed a barn. The third, I via doing
tin koofs; the fourth, common signs; the
fifth, statuary tostand before cigar shoI a.
Tlis present month is only the sixth, aid
I am already in portraits!
The humble offering which accomn
panies these remarks--the portrait of
iHis Majesty Wu.ux III., Kma or Paus
sLr-is my fifth attemp in portraits, and
my greatest success. It has received un
bounded praise from all classes of the
commnunity, but that which gratifies me
most is the frequent and cordial verdict
that it resembles the GEALAxr portraits.
Those were my first love, my earliest ad
illratiolI, the original suiot-e and in
centive of my art-ambition. Whatever I
im in Art to-day, I owe to the Giut.xr
portlaits. I ask no crodit for.mves 'i- -
deserve none. Aid I never take ayr
either. Muyv a stranger has come to mu;
exhibition (for I have had my portait of
King William on exhibition at one dollar
as ticket,) and would have gone away
olaing nit, if I had let him, but I never
lid. I dilavs .stated where . goat the
King William wears large bushy side
whiskers, and some critic's have thought
t .at this portrait would be more comn
picte if they were added. But it waa.
not possible. There was not room for
ride whiskers and epaulettes both, and
s. I let the whiskers go, and puti m tie
epaulettes, for the sako of style. That
ruing on his hat is an eagle. The Prus
sian eagie-it is a national emblem.
When I say hat, I mean helmet; but it
srSma impossible to make a picture of 4
nelmet that a body can have confidence
I wish kind friends everywhere wou'd
aid me in my endeavor to attract a lit
de attention to the Galaxy portraits. I
.eel persuadod it can be accomplished, if
t ae course to lje pursWQul be chosen
with judgment. I write for that magaz n
all the thime, and so do manyi abler men,
.ad if I can got the Galaxy portraits
nto univer.sal raver, it is all I ask ; the
reading natter will take care of itself.
There is nothing like it in the Vatican.

It has none of that vagueness, that
dreamy spirituality about it, which many
of the first critics of Arkansas have ob
jeted to in the Murillo schooll of Art.
The expression is very interesting.
