While I've thought how pure the fountain
Whence such 8 wect.bric'ut drops would fall:-
Thought how many sunny vUions
Sing us more, sweet Lizzie Beebe;
I am longing fur those note
Which like angel music softly
Through my chamber floats.
Throw into those songs a pathi
As you ever have and will.
Which will wake the better feelings
In the human heart, anJ thrill
All its pulses with a longing.
With an earnest, strong desire
To fulfill life's holy mission.
And to vorthinc&s -aspire.
I have read your penciled breathings
With a heart which echoed all.
To your nature must belong.
That you wore their hues so freely
Into the fair wreaths of song.

It was well Lnown that Maggie was an
heiress, that at cur father's death, thcfvil
lage property was all willed to her, while
was left sole master and proprietor of!
proj ncior oi
homestead. Lawton became a fre-!
quent visitor at our Louse, and with assid
ious attentions won the love of your moth
er, who, though very cautious lor one so
young, was still not proc " against one every
way so attractive, of course. We were
boon companions, being of an age and at
that time disposed to sport in the same
round of amusements aud convivial pleas
ures. It was not long ere one of my noble
friends in whom I had the most implicit
confidence, warucd me against the man.
first I spurned his suspicions and judg
him harshly of being jealous of Lawton.
But his earnest entreaty that I should
watch and know for myself, put mo upon
guard, aud it was but a short time till
found that iu his frequent excursions
home, Lc forgot Lis Ligh pretensions
morality and goodness, and was often
foiiud, the gayest of the gay, in those
places where the truly chaste and upright
would never appear.
To make sure of this, I oue night fol
lowed lihu in disguise, and seen enough to
my whole soul with indignation against
man who wou'd dare, under such a well
mask of piety aud virtue, sue for the
hand ot my only sister.
1 sounded ' Lcr feelings, and found my
dear Maggie, (as I Lave to-night,) that
her woman's heart was all permeated with
a love which made Lcr resent the slightest
hint of Lis hypocrisy and baseness.
But true to my affection and duty as an
elder brother, I told her all and warned
her of her fate."
"But the villain."
"Oh! he was my father," sobbed Mag
gie. "True! darling, and though he deserved
all I can give him, for your sake I will
speak rest'cetfully. He foiled me at every
turn, and at last turned my sister coldly
from me, forged letters that gave her con
fidence in him and made her distrust uie,
and at IcDgth made both my mother and
Maggie believe that I was his enemy with
out a cause."
"I was young and impulsive, and sfter,
in the most solemn manner warning Mag
gie of her coming fate, I left home.
Shortly after with my mother's fullest
c -nsent and concurrence, they were married

Eighteen years ago. the property of the

husband at the marriage, and my sister
would have been shocled at Uie idea of!
withholding dollars and cents, houses and
lands from the man to whom, iu all eoufi-
dencc and loving trust, she had given her-
self for better or for worse till death should
part them. As soon as I knew that my
aged mother was alone in her widowhood,

wretch, who had so deceived her. All his

But all Lope was vain. It took but a few
mouths to waste all hcr substance, then

had been taught as all other girls have, but

and to sick to write to friends.') to be car-

she had been struggling with life ; where

For the Farmer.
The following extract from the Hand
book of Dairy Hnslrtndrtfr by J. C. Mor
ton, recently published in London, and ita
suggestions arc worthy of the consideration
of our dairy farmers:
The cropping of the dairy ftirm has al
ready been considered. We refer to it
again under this section to insist on toe
great advantage to large dairy farms of a
considerable portion of the land being ara
ble. The alility to maintain cows during
the winter season, when dry or not yielding
milk enough for the maintainancc ot the
general dairy management on roots and '
straw instead of hay, and thus to set apart
a large portion of the grass for summer
pasture, to its own great advantage and to
the greater productiveness of the cows at
their most productive period, cannot be
overrated. If every 100 acres of grass
land, being at the rate of more than 1 J
acres per cow of whole summer pasture, to
gether with the aftermath of a correspond
ing quality needed for winter hay, will
maintain a herd of 30 dairy cows, then any
source of winter feeding which will displace
two-thirds of the Lay required, will set free
for pasturage two-thirds of the extent of
grass laud to be mown. Ii is not too much
to say that by 20 acres under arable cul
ture, as much winter food will be provided
as by 50 acres of grass mown. Supposing,
then, these 100 acres to be divided into 80
acres pasture and 20 acres arable, it ls
plain that of the half of this pasture (40
acres) which ordinarily would full to be
niowu, at least two-thirds (2Q acres) wouli
be set free by the wiuter food (straw and
green crops) yielding by the 20 acres ara
ble, and the stock capable of being kept on
the remaining 89 acres pasture, as compar
ed with that on the 100 acres of whola
pasture, depends oa the relative summer
produce of C9 aerts whole grass, and 44
acres aftermath, as compared with thai a
50 acres of whole pasture, and 50 acres
aftermath. There" cannot be a doubt that
the latter, and at the most productive time
of the year; while the land will, at the
same time, under this plan, be more like
ly to increase from year to year in value.
