From the Glen'i Falli Clarion. Till: nAVI lC CURL. I saw a maid of beautious form, Gathering flowers amid the storm The storm of life Her pnlo white cheek and glassy eye, Told plninly to the paticr by, The bitter strife. Dark, glossy ringlets graced her brow, And fell ih curling beauty low Upon her neck. Alio twined o wrcnth of wild flowers, Tho brow that once a diamond wore Of costly make. Her lips, on which the wonted smile Would linger, nnd the hours beguile, Were ashy pale: The roseate hue, its blushing red, JJcfore the fell destroyer fled, As leaves by frosts of Autnmu dead, Before the gale. She laughed, sho wept, then gazing wild, This wreck of hope misfortune's child, Would turn nnd flee: A human form to her appeared Most horrid, and moil to be fcar'd ; If one unconsciously she ncar'd, Away she'd be. While yet in life's young spring of bliss, Tho spoiler came with honied kiss, To Eden's bower ; His fatal charm ho threw around Tho choicest flower in Eden found, With words as fatso as hell profound Ho pluck'd the flower. It withered 'ncnih his fiendish breath, Its Icavci wore scattered pale as death, Iow on the earth. Sho gazed with wild and vacant stare Her brain was turned by dark despair: Shu wrung her hands nnd tore her hair, And cursed her birth. She roamed o'er the lone common bleak, A maniac girl ; while down her cheek The pearly tear Coursed, whh a deep and burning smart, Wrung by a d.istard villain's nrt, From n confiding maiden's heart From founts onto clear. And oft in night's profoundest gloom, When earth was silent ns the tomb, She'd wander forth : In one of ualure'e wildest strains, Her manirn song would weep the plains, And echoee wake where stillness reigns, In glens of earth. The burden of her song would be False-hearted lover, thou art free, Hut I am bound : O come thou in whom I confide, Unloose these cords and let me glide To yonder halls and be a brido From this cold ground. Not onco sho prays that vengeance duo, Might that black demon fired pursue; Hut asks of heaven That ha who was her young heart's pride, That bo on whom her soul relied, Might be rescued from guilt's dark tide Might be forgiven. Hr days were short, her weeks were few. For Death, whoso friendship's tried and true, Soon quickly came, And chfpeJ her to his icy breast, And bore unto a land of rest, This blasted rose-bud sorrow's gueet This child of shame. 1 nm alwavs o plain snoken man, you know, Mr Harwood.and never conceal what I think the truth when called upon to utter my sentiments. I can only say, then, that it you arc nonrn an your dealings with others, only from contidern-' tionsof policy or, in other words, in order that your own ends may be attained, then your mor ality is very low indeed, for it is founded in selfish ness.' 'In selfishness?' Yea, in selfishness.' Well, what then? Do we not go into busi ness for selfish ends J Do not all our acta in life j regard self? And is not regard for self n true I principle of action ? Let every one take proper tcaro of himself, and nil will be Tightly cared 1 for 'Thus tho world, blinded by selfishness, argues . L know. But it is arguing from false premises. , Suppose each rcgnrdid his neighbor, would not 11 be as well cared for ?' ! 'I nm sure I cannot say. If all men were per fect, perhaps they would. But wc must take the j world ns wo finu it.' 'In takinp tho world as wo find it, wc ought to act in it from principles true in themselves.

If you nre honest, only because you bclievo it the best policy lor you to be so, men you wouiu act uis honestly, if by doing so, your worldly interests would to subserved in n higher degree.' 'You must not talk to me in that way, Mr Em ory,' his friend responded quickly, in a half ang ry tone. 'I arn an honest man and am known to bo such in this community. No man can say that I ever wronged him out of a dollar, in tho world I' 'That may all bo so, Mr. Harwood, nnd yet, it seems to mo that vou might act upon a much higher and truer principle. You ought to be honest, because it is right to be so. Because, you would shrink from touching that which belongs to your neighbor, as from tho performance of a most direful evil.' 'I don't see the forco of your positions, Mr Em ory",' tho friend replied.
