POfiTEY THE PASSING STREAM. JLH KUGT TO BCPARTED FltlSItDS. .T THE AUTHOR Of " QLOOM or AUTUMS." Farewell ye fond friends of past years ! Sad changes have caus'd us to part ; Remembrance now melts me to tears, And anguish is bursting my heart : My life'a ptomis'd pleasures are gone a a dream, My friends, onco belor'd, pass away like a stream. The breesee are flll'd with my sighs, Alone by a rirer I weep ; My tears fa'l in foods from my eyes, And pass down the stream to the deep ; I mourn for the loss of my friends in the tomb, Aa rirers are lost in the ocean, their home. Ah ! sweet gliding rWcr, flow on ! Thy murmurs inrite me to mourn ; gad emblem of friends who are gone, Like waters, no more to return ; Thus Taniah thy bubbles, thy foam and thy wares, Like friends who hare left me, or rest in their graTea, 0 stream, full of fountains and cold ! Thy beauty is seen with a sigh, For youth her. their merriment hold. And bath, till they sicken and die : Their Bouree of delight and diversion to-day, To-morrow may waft their young spirits away. Ah ! who can unfeelingly see A stream where the lorely are drown'd ; O stream ! thou art mournful to me, For here one was lost and was found : But cold was his form as the water that Bows, Ah, cold as the grave where my kindred repose. Alas, how dispersed are my friends Iiow many repose in their graTea ! Some smile where Ohio descends, . . Some weep over Erie's blue waves : Fond river, new waters still visit thy shore, But friends long departed can cheer me no more..

'You think so ? 'I know so ! Only try it, dear, for this one evening. 'It didn't seem to require much effort just now,' said .Mrs. Lewis, glancing up at her husband with something of archness in her look. Again a shadow dropped down on the face of Mr. Lewis, which was again partly turned away; and again they walked on in silence. He is so sensititive !' Mrs. Lewis said to herself, the shadow on her husband's face darkening over her own. 'I have to be as carelul of my words aa if talking to a spoil ed child.' No, it did not require much effort on the part of Mr. Lewis to smile as he passed a few words lightly wiih Mr. Edwards. The remark of his wife had not really displeas ed him; it. h id ouly set him to thiukingr. .

V 'It did net seem to require any effort,' replied Mrs. Lewis. 'No, not much effort was required,' said Mr. Lewis. 1 1 is tones were t-ltghtly de pressed. 'But this must be taken into the account ; my mind was in a certain state of excitement or activity that repressed sober j feelings, and made smiling an ea-y thing. So we smile and are gay in company, at j cost of little effort, because all are smiling I'ul 'words home with you, husbands, faihen 'Mother understands,' replied Mr. Lewis, smiling tenderly upon his wife. 'something pleasant must have happened, said Mary 'Something pleasant ? Why do you say that r asked Mr. Lewis. 'You and mother look so happy,' replied the child. 'And we have cause to be happy, an swered the father as he drew his arm tight ly around her, 'in having three such good children. Mary laid her cheek to his, and whisper ed, 'il you are smiling and happy, near father ! home will be like Heaven.' Mr. Lewis kissed her ; but did not re ply. He felt a rebuke in her words. But the rebuke did not throw a chill over his feelings ; it only gave new strength to his purposes. 'Don't distribute all your smiles. Keep a few of the w:irme-t and brisrlilest for home, said Mrs. Lewis, as she parted w nli her husband on the next morning. He kissed her, but did mj, promise. The smiles kepi, however, and evening saw them ; though not the outside world. Other and many, many evenings raw the same cheer ful smile, ami the same happy home. And was nut Mr. Lewis a lietter and happier man ? Of course he was.

Smiles for Homes. BY T. S. AUTHOR. Take that home with you dear, said Mrs. Lewis, her manner half smiling, half serious. ' " - , ' 'Take what home, Caddy ?' and Mr. Lewis turned towards his wifec.uriously. Now Mrs. Lewis had spoken from the moment's impulse, and had already partly regretted her remark. 'Take what home !' repeated her hus band. 'I don't understand you.' 'That smiling face you turned upon Mr. Edwards, when you answered his question just now. Mr. Lewis slightly averted his head, and walked on in silence, They had allied in at the store of Mr. Edwards to purchase a few articles, and were on their way home. There was no smile on the face of Mr. Lewis now, but a very grave expression in stead, grave almost to sternness. The words of his wife had taken him altogether by surprise ; and though spoken lightly, had jarred upon his ears. The truth was, Mr. Lewis, like a great many other men who have their own busi ness cares and troubles, was in the habit of bringing home a sober, and too often a clouded face' It was in rain that his wife and gay, and we feel the common sphere of excitement. How different it often is. when we are alone, I need not say, You, C tddy, are guilty of the sober face at home, as well as your husband.' Mr. Lewis spoke with a tender reproof in his voice. 'But the sober face is caught from you oftener than you imagine, my husband,' re plied Mrs Lewis. Are you certain of that, Caddy ?' Very certain. You make the sunlight and shadow of your home. Smiles upon US 5 give us cheerful words ; enter into our feelings and interests, and there will be no brighter home in all the hind. A shadow on your countenance is a veil for my heart, and the same is true as respects our chil dren. Our pulses strike too nearly in uni in not to be disturbed when yours has lost its even beat,' Again Mr. Lewis walked in silence, his face partly averted ; and again his wife be gan to fear that she had spoken too freely. But he soon dispelled this impression for he said 'I am glad Caddy, that you have spoken thus plainly. 1 only wish you had done so before. , I see .now u is My smiles have been for the outside world the world that neither loved nor regarded me, and my clouded brow foe the dear ones at home, for wh m thought and care are ever living ac tivities.' Mr. and Mrs. Lewis were now at their own door, where they paused a moment, then went in. Instantly on passing- his threshold, Mr. Lewis felt the pressure upon him of his usual state. The hue of his feelings began to change. The cheerful, interesting exterior put on for those he met in business intercourse, began rapidly to change, and a sober hue to succeed. Like most business men, his desire for profitable rcsulis was even far in advance of the slow evolutions cf trade ; and his daily history was a history of disappointments, in some measure dependent upon his restless antici pations. He was not as willing to work and to wait as he should be ; and like many of his clpss, neglected the pearls that lay here and there along his paths, because they were interior in value to those he hoped to find just a little way in advance. The consequence w as that, when the day's business exsitement was over, his mind fell into a brooding state, snd lingered over it disappointments, or looked forward with failing hope in the future, for hope in many things, had long been deferred. Aud so he rarely had had smiles for his home. and brothers.

Comrades, if we wish to be anything, we must not 'yield an inch to this abominable trio, but light them strenuously, incessantly, and to. the death. How many that might have been heroes, but for them, have tamely submitted lo spend a life of insignificance, then leave the world no better for their living in it, and be forgotten. Let us hold a council of war, now, to learn the tricks of the enemy and how to deal with them.. I think I have learned respecting indo lence, the leader, that il is so ashamed of its self that it usually goes in disguise as ill ness, fatigue, inability, modesty, dignity, or some such thing. A certain traveller, how ever, has given us a picture of its bare face. The gentleman was occosted by a stalwart beggar --with, i lease, sir, give me' some money," "Yon great fellow," said he, "why don't you go to work, aud earn some mon ey ?" Listen to the reply : "O, sir, it you only did know h o w 1-a-z-y I am." Indolence is a liar. It not only appears in false colors itself, but slanders others, pretending that work is not so pleasant as idleness ; when we all know that idleness wearies more than industry tires us. It would keep us longing for the end of our term of study or any other work, although we all know by experience that the Imppi est days of our life are the busiest the days when we work the hardest, not by compul sion, but willingly and with enthusiasm ; and that the mot miserable, discontented, languid, tired, desponding feeling that we ever have, is at the clAse of a day wasted in idleness, with nothing to do, and no settled plans for the future.

Alf along the Kidderminster road that September night was hurry and contusion ; the King knew not wiiither to fly. Lon don was proposed 5 but no one except Lord Wilmot fell in with this plan. - Scotland4 was next thought of j and the royal party, seperating from the main body, turned northward. Darkness overtook them, and at Kiiner Heath, near Kidderminster, they lost their way. In this dismal plight Lord Derby remembered Boscobel House. So on their perilous journey tbey again went. Stourbridge must be passed through, where bodies of the enemy were quartered. Through its silent streets they went with eUl. enorosy, slapjiir.g -Btn lonely roadside house out of the town for refreshments ; and just when davlijrht was dawning;, they found themselves at While Ladies, a seat of the Gafford family. The king's horse, by the way of precaution, was stabbed in the very hall. No time could be lost. Mr. Gitfard sent for Richard and William Pen- derel, w ho with their other brothers, were tenants on his estate, and to them commit- lud the king. ' Blue ribbon, and Geonre of diamonds, and garter, and princely orna ments had to be Hung away, ihe kings long black hair was cut country fashion. His hands and face smeared over with soot. He had to exchange his own clothes for a coarse nogen shirt, a common country man s green and jrreasy spit, and a leathern doublet. While they are busy disguising him, news is brought that the enemy is close al hand. The king is hurried through a secret door, and hid in Spring Coppice. .nto the thickest part ot it do they plunge. Morning has broken and the rajn pours heavily on the royalfugitive,ns he sits shiver ing at the foot of a tree. All his friends, with the exception of Wilmot, who remains in the neighborhood under the protection of John IVndcrel, have now left him ; not even daring lo know where he is hid, for fear that under coercion they might betray the secret. They attempt to rejoin Lesley "s horse, which is as useless in retreat as it was in battle ; and is soon cut to pieces. Lord Derby with many others is taken pris oner. The Duke of Buckingham, Lord Liviston, with a few more, contrive to es cave. Richard Pemlerel manages to pro- c jre a blanket for the kinp:, and his sister- in law, "ihe good wife Yates, brings a mess of milk, and some butter and eggs," de claring with true womanly affection, "that slm would die rather than -discover him." A poor court, this wet wood, for a. king ; and yet these poor people were sincerer courtiers than ever Charles had betore known. In the dusk of the evening, Charles and his guide stole out of the wood, with ihe in tention of making for Wales. Al his guide's house, Charles was again disguised, and as sumed the name of Will Jones ; kings, even in our times, have been reduced to such necessities. They then started for Madely, j on tlie banks 01 the evern. im their road there, an incident belel them, which we give in the words of the author of "Bos cobel :" . "Before his majesty came to Madeley, he met with an ill-favored encounter at Evelin Mill, being about two miles from thence. The miller, it seems, was an honest man but his majesty and Richard Penderel knew it not and had then in his house consider able persons of his majesty's army, who took shelter there in tlie llight from Wor cester, and had not been long in the null, so that the miller was upon his watch; and Kichard, unhappily permitting a gate to ciap through which they had passed, jjave occasion to the miller to come out and bold ly ask, 'Wlio is there T Richard, thinking ihe miller had pursued them, quitted the usual way with some haste, and led his niaji s:y over a little brook, which they .were forced to wade through, and which contrib- id helping -hiri nuide over. About By'!s the morning tliey reached Boscobel wood, where the king found Major Carlis, who led the forlorn hope at Worcester, and who, as the author of "Boscobel" quaintly says, "had seen not ihe last man born, but the last man killed al Worcester." The king and the major climbed up into a thick pol lard oak, or, in the language of the country people of the present day, "a dorrell tree." I h"ough ils thick, close branches and its yellow autumn leaves they could peep and see the red coats of their enemies passing close under- them, peering into every cor ner of the wood. Evening at last rescued them: aud now, , 5 . When all the path, were dim, ., And Sur below the Koiindhead rods, . Aud hunim'd a surly hymn, . . t they returned to Boscobel House, where William Penderel lived, and where his good wife, Joan, provided the king with a sup per of chickens. At supper ' a council is held as to ihe next day's provisior.s, and Major Carlis proposes a campaign against a neighboring sheep-fold, which he success fully performs ihe next morning, killing a sheep with his dagger, and William Pen-dei-el bearing it home in triumph ; an ex ploit which reminds us of some of the scenes which Charles Edward must have witness ed in the Cave of Corado.
