Music of Earth.
TliCrC in a music, merry music,
Kinging through the forest wilfl,
Gushing free ami full of gladness?
'Tis the language of it child!
ff Where the velvet moss is greenest,
Where the blue-eyed violets bloom,
Where IJjo soft spring air is laden,
With a wealth of rich pe.rlumc,
lie is sporting in the sunshine,
With his young heart full of glee,
And bin merry laugh is ringing,
Hinging over joyousl\ !
There i.s music, happy music,
Kahocd sol'tly through tho prove,
l>rcathirift gently o( affectum?
'Tin tho maiden's song of love !
Mushing rose and looping illy
Loud their bottnly to her bower,
Dnt. with mingled tears and Mushes,
She is Ht ill the fairest flower!
f>he is drowniing of the absent,
Of hi* parting kiss and smile,
And her hnppy son# is gushing,
Gushing gladly all the while !
There is music, solemn music,
Stealing through the church ai&lcsdhn,
Sweeping high in lofty echoes,
'Tis tho sacred bridal hymn!
Ilound the altar they aro gathered,
Where tho bridegroom and the brido
Breathe their earnest vows in whispers,
Lowly kneeling sido by Hide,
O, tho air is pure and holy,
And along the church aisles dim,
Softly stealing, richly rolling,
Pouls the sacrod bridal hymn I
Tlierc is music, mournful mu-jlc.
Wlilllng o'er tlio turf'fl low bud,
Sounds of deep, hcari-rendering anguish,
'Ti.? the requiem for the dead!
'Neath the shadow of the cypress,
Where the drooping hyacinths weep,
They have laid the loved and lovely
In an early grave to sleep!
Thorc arc sighs of crushing sorrows,
Hitter tears arc vainly shed.
Mournful voefts still arc wailing,

puffed up with my own importcmco', I found
myself in company with hundreds of my

At last, my new friend (or, rather, the
vehicle which conveyed him) came to a

1 felt myself in a few moments being mounted

in r soliloquy, as ho comfortably
reclined in a large arm chaw before an open

our number o'er and o'er again, and evidently
regarding us with unbounded satis- <

" Well, said he, chuckling as he spoke, :
how many strange things turn up in this

when 1 last came to the city to purchase
my spring goods and, stores, and was tempted
to spend the money that L had intended
to lay out for a silver spoon for Kullie, in
the purchase of that quarter of a ticket,
that it ever would amount to anvthiner:
nnd now I find 810,000 (o my account at

Trucnian, when ho came home and told i
me my luck, and that after apcctaining the
fate of my ticket, he had ficoured tli O tnon I

but here my draft (his morning for fivp i

I'll give that up, and it'll tip'something in i
Trucman's wav, fin he will then have no <
rival in the town. Then I can spend a i
few dollars in making old Ma'am "Wickerts
a little more comfortable?patching up her 1
old house, and laying in her wood and gro- I

remain long in this confinement, but noon
saw daylight again, and rapidly pawed from

of his pocket, where I bad remained fur
several hours, solitary anil alone. I watched
him as he sat moodily gazing into the
red, burning mass before him?tho deep*
set grey-eye glowing with a fire almost equal
to that it was contemplating?the heavy
lines around the mouth working with .some
inward agitation?the broad brow contracting
with painful thought, and the long fingers
twitching convulsively, and grasping
at the shadows conjured up by tho imagination
which ruled their movements, lint

oncc'more, only once.' And this is the
end. Kuin ! starvation ! dishonor ! No!
by my soul 1 will not live and bear it," ho.
exclaimed, starting up and pacing the floor
with wild excitement. Then in a tone of
deep anguish ho added : "Oh ! Mary, Mary,
can L ever meet your angel eyes again ?
AVill not that pure brow be a living re
proaeh to me'! And my child ! my innocent,
helpless child ! Will it not in after
years blush when it hears it's father's
name coupled with that of gambler, forger
and almost murderer; but no, thank God,
that was spared me. I did not take his
life; the villain who tempted me to do the
foul deed; by holding out the hope that I
could retrieve my desperate fortunes, and I
yielded and betrayed the confidence of a
generous old man, the father of the wife of
my Itowom, by using his name feloniously;
and now all is lost. Oh! money, nione^,"
he exelaimed, taking me up, and thus apostrophizing
me : "Thou glittering bait, how
like thou art to the flame that lures J he
poor moth to destruction ! For thee have
1 sold myself, soul and body. No place on
earth, no hope in Heaven ! But, by the
eternal," he br )ke out abruptly, dashing me
to the table, "I will not live to bear disgrace
to the in. No, the dead aro sacred,
and their faults are buried with them.?
'Tis a fearful plunge, from time to eternity
I kuow, but it must be made. Metliinks
I hear the rolling of tho dark river,

from whof;o slmdowy brink comes swelling
up the anthems of the lost. JI?, ha! their
revels will he disgraced to-night by another
guest. Ho, ye fiends ! a room and high
place of honor to the suicid !"
A blinding flash?a loud report?and the
snioko clearing away, 1 gazed upon the tall
Ggure stretched motionless on the floor. _the

Very different were my feelings then
from what they wore when iji my portly
friend's possession, I learned the uses that
money could he put to. I now had a ghast- i
ly warning before me of its abuses, and my
rauity received a severe blow. Not long
had 1 to ruminate, however, for the report

many feet to the room, which was soon tillid
with a gnping, wondering, horror-strick

thoughts of what bad just transpired that I
did not notice whither my new owner was
conducting me, until 1 was aroused to con
iQiouftness by hearing h feeblo voicc exslaiui:
''In that you, Tim ? 1 am ho glad

than tho abiding placo of anything belonging
to the human.family.. A low flock bed

tho old building, while the other held tho

'Tim' could examine iue more closely.
'A dollar! Tim, where did you get it?"
and the watery eyes grew redder and looked
"Oh ! shut up; none o* yer business?
ju^t hand them are nippers, will ye?" and
before I knew where I was, J fejt myself
severely pinched and minus a round pioce
ill the Hide. I now found that I had fallen
into desperate hands. 1 had heard of
persons hammering holes into ummspicioufl
individuals of my speeiex, for the sake of
the sniidl quantity of silver extracted by
the procoss, and now I had experienced the
delightful sensation of having the operation
performed. 1 began to get sick of the name
of inonev, and wished mv fathers in baptism
had left me to plumber unconsciously
in the darkness from which they had resuscitated
me, for my weary limbs began
to tire of the race which never lacked pursuers
! But onward, onward; I still must
fulfil my mission.
1 passed from the dirty handu that temporarily
owned me; took long jnurneys by
son and land ; found some pure jov, when !
1 furnished food for the starving or clothes I
for the destitute, hut experienced many a
sad reaction. When exchanged for the
maddening howl, 1 was the innocent
cause of transforming the man to worse j
than the brute; or by the meretricious value
attached to my possession, I dazzled the
weak and yielding to the committal of dark
und unholy deeds.
Too long a story would it he, too dark n
talc to ring in 'ears polite/ by many adventures.
My weary pilgrimage at Inut found
a peaceful termination, which L will hasten

u~.., .winning iv my imiive lanu saieiy
wrapped up in a pcicc of tarpaulin at th<s
bottom of a sailov'u ' h'vit.' I remember
well the day ho put n.e there. I had accompanied
him to a drinking house, to have
a regular "out-and-outer" (as he termed it)
ore sailing. I lis money dwindled away on
the occasion, until only I was left. He
took me several times from his pocket, eyed
me wistfully, and then returned me. At
last ho thus addressed mo :
"No; shiver my timbers if I do! I'll
carry something home to that small craft,
tljat bv this tuno must, ha uufVlx nwivod iu
the home harbor. It's just the thing for
the little cutter to mount it's teeth on."?
Accordingly, 1 was reserved for that purpose;
and when the blue hills, that shut in
my honest friend's limn bio home, stretched
out their welcome arms to greet him af
ici- ins long voyage, and tho old house dog
became suddenly rejuvenated, and frisked
tihout, wagging his stumpy tail in token of
recognition, and the poachy-cheeked young
matron hung on his manly breast, and laid
her wifely offering iu his arms for a lather's
kiss and blessing. 1 was brought to light,
graced with a flaming orange-colored ribbon
(ran through tho hole that Tim made) and
passed over the little craft's nock as a life
buoy against the time when the storm of
tecth-eutting should set in. And hero, in

nervation of T.avaler, says a writer of the j
Boston Post, that persons habitually alien- j
live to dress display tlio same n-gularity in |
their domestic it flairs. "Young women," ' d
says ho, "who negleCl their toilette, and ^
ntaitit'esl little concern about their apparel, | ((
indicate in this very particular a disregard |
of order ; n mind but little adapted to the j
details of housekeeping; a deficiency of ^
taste and of the qualities that inspire love. ^
The girl of eighteen who desires not to
please, will l?e shrew and a slut at twentylive."
It is a great mistake in women to '
suppose that they may safely throw oil*all
care about, dress with their celibacy, as if |
husbands had less taste than suitors ; or as ^
if wives had less heed than mistresses of o
the advantage of elegant and tasteful ap- ^
pavel. An old writer says, with a hearty ^
emphasis," It is one of the moral duties of
every married woman always to appear j
well dresspd in the presence of her bus- ^
band."* To effect this, however, expensive j ^
attiiuiaby no inenns esson'.ial. Tho sim- j s
pleat robe may evinco tlio wearer's taste as ; j'rnly
as the most costly gown of " moiro 1 't
antiqno.'' But how faro a quality is good ^
taste! In tho matter of propriety and harmony
of colors, there is room fora treatise,
which lias yet to bo written by somo ono
thoroughly proficient in tho asthotica^of n
dross. Even tho simpler laws, though pret* f
ty generally understood, are constantly neg- "
lectcd. Some of these canons have been e
laid down, in a most sensible' manner, by
the author of an English poem of tho last ?
o.ontmy. To brunettes he recommends high 1
colors?ro.io, orange, or even scarlet Jo ?
rosy-checked girls, ho permits blue and the
coior 01 ino sen ; ai?.i mlmunslers a caution
to pnlo women ngainst vurnnl hues.
