CORNER MARKET AND 4TH SIS. Z. RAGAN, Editor and Proprietor. print &k From the Waverly Magazine. tWO SIDES OF LIFE'S PATHWAY. ,. BY AMANDA M. POUGLASS. CHAPTER II. (CONCLUDED.) The human heart has been likened to a book, so I will unseal thin, and let you road from its pages; but, nh! many of them bear tho impress of deep, bitter grief tears that have well nigh blotted words and deeds out. We have opened to a pic ture, a scene fairer than pencil hath ever drawn that of a purc-hearted boy. Kflghtly doth his wavy curls gleam, and from underneath the long lashes peeps an ye, of love, hardly equalled by heaven's stawy ems. And his words como like th chime of distant music, falling on a listening ear, with a power none but n yfcless father can know. Day by day ftoe8 he roam at his father's side, gather ing flowers, watching birds, and chasing butterflies j and when night comes, ho falls asleep entwined by a loving father's arm, Wheu tho fair boy is sick, the pa rent is his only watcher; when the hues of health return, au ardent thankfulness fills his bosom. They are two gems so closely entwined, that taking away one would break the other. The bright boy has. no mother at least, so thoy told him ; and h is too happy, too full of innocent gaiety evr to think of her ; yes, long ngo nho was forgotten by both erased from 'their memory as a blot, an unsccnly thing not worth remembrance. There is a laugh ringing through tho ears of tho patient sewer, a sweet laugh of sunny childhood, ore care hath .dampened ono spring a full, free, sweet sound, waking an echo among the flowers and trees, and dying away as tho gushing melody of a summer bird, How it thrilled every feeling ah ! it was only fancy; yet if she could see him onco more, lasp hiui to her bosom, nd hear him murmur "mother!" then nho could lay down and die with every wish of lifo granted every hope fulfdlcd. 0,' that could never be, for ho would gaze vacantly on her, and turn away as from tho veriest stranger. Strange, strange that she could thus liavo lost her way in a path of unwavering light strange, she should have- sought Btrangcrs in preference to those who had loved long and sincerely and yet, thank God, she had preserved her woman's es tate pure amidst it all. Never once had words of lovo pawed her lips for other than the husband of her early choice ; but sho had been fcpjfully blinded by pride, whon sho thought tho fault was his. She had wreathed hor lip in smiles for stran gers:, sho had danced, and sung flitted about like tho butterfly, knowingly casting from her, puro lasting happiness, for a sparkling beam that faded like sunshine oii tho waters. . And tho tempter well did she rcmomber him how each word he had uttered, sent fire through hor ov cry vein, and taught her to look upon her cottage homo as a prison; each day hnd worn away a link, and scon it replaced with ft stepping-stone of futuro suffering blindly she had let it pass without one ef fort of resistance When the handsome Btranger knolt by her, there wore words of love pn.hifl tonguo, not for her, no, would it had, been, for thero tho tcmptor might Wa stood in hor Drcscnccjinvmlcd, and sho could have shunned him; but he upoko of music, his passion hor passion and sho had listcnod, entranced, fascina ted ; pot twitH ono., unkindly thought of mm wnoiau.pccn nu in an ro jiur, in.uur heart, but the tempter's words had woke a spirit of the beautiful in her imnost.Boul and when, she mot her husband, and heard his taunting words, she answered proudly in. innocence of hcVt. .Qno kind word would have forced open the gates of his heart! J upd love gushed forth fomfly, warmly as before, but sho would not say even ono iu extcuuation or sorrow, and thus she.had left her early home. Monoy oould purchase stranger friends, but not love as she .well Kncw; Dy wis time.,, men once the tempter crossed her pathway, and whispcro'd words that' made her shrink in affright, and she spurned him as she would a loathsome thing. Bravely she had en dured every privation, uncomplainingly toiled until sickness came. Once sho had thought sho could die amongst strangers, but oh 1 it was hard, very hard, and Luuy Kverard prayed for life not that she feared death, no, but there camo a wild onging to die at Itosedcll. Far better it would be to lay in some unheeded corner there, than among entire strangers. Time, it mattered but little where the body laid, but sho could not dio among strangers; and when sho rose from her bed, there was no pride in her heart, but deep sorrow and that had come too late. Well, sho tiad chosen her own path not a thorn was thero that sho did not deserve not one cloud, but she had wilfully barred the sunshine from it ; and now hers must be a weary, desolate path unloved she must go down to the grave. Faster, faster flew tho busy fingers, nicker sped thoughts lightning on, bring ing back( every smile, each kiud word, and all the love lavished on her once, weaving with it darker scenes until tho whole sky was covered not ono star visible. Lower burned the candle ; fainter camo its rays a moment, and it was out, but her task accomplished ; and she arose with a feel ing of relief, but it soon vanished. Then sho resumed her seat again, and leaued down her weary head, all alone, in that pale, beautiful moonlight. When sho had been actively employed, an impetus was given thought; but now, when tho excite ment was over, all strength, both mentally and physically, seemed gone, and in tho wild chaos of her brain there was nothing but utter desolation, Thero was a step on tho stairs, and Lucy Kverard cowered still lower in tho silver ight that played around her. Could it bo licr merciless landlord ? no, not to-night ; two days must elapse ere hor rent would be duo ; a hand was on the door knob it turned, and before the trembling woman stood ono whoso coming had woke sniilos in other days, but now a deep loathing. Not less bright and fascinating was the eye in its snake-like glitter ; but on the arched brow, and around tho mouth, wcro lines that spoke ill-dissembled triumph but they had all lost their power now, and his low, musical voico woko no echo in her heart as he said, "So, uiy pretty bird, I havo found you at last!" "She stirred not neither did one pulso quicken as sho replied, in a cold, passion less tone, "why have you sought me ?" "Why have I sought you?" and tho stranger knelt before her. "Why do tho birds seek their nest at cvo ? why do tho fleecy clouds remain forever in tho eky ? Toll me this Lucy Kverard." "Because," sho said, and hor words sounded like the falling of water upon a rock," "because it is their homo." "No, not becauso it is their home, for tho wide, wido world is alike theirs to reBt in ; but it is tho spot of lovo, the re-union of kindred spirits because, like mo, they havo a beacon Btar luring thcra onward, whore they shall meet with bliss because I have loved you madly, passionately this is why, for years, I havo never wearied in searching for you." " ! "I told you, ere this, I had no lovo to give ; that I could not lovo twice, for tho first still enchained my heart. "Lovo ! Tell me, fair lady, was it loVo that made Allan Kvorard turn from .his gentle wife, who clung to, him for support nay, even lifo 1 Was it love that dark ened his brow, whon ho bado her gq forth an alion from her own homo If so, it is passing strange. Lucy, dearest Lucy, 'I have lovod as ho never even dreamed of ; in secret I havo cherished tho dream of your happiness ;" and his Voico sank low, like the hum of starlit waters." "I have wealth to bring you every luxury ardent love liko mine could devise will you not leftvo this dreary place and como with mo? Alroady yout1 beautiful' jjyes are dim,and your check pale and wasted, but with hio all : this shall be restored will you not come?" ; ' M, "No motion no look to tell one chord of the heart was touched, as sho rcpliod In almost nnoarthly calnihcss '! 'Tempt mo not; for their sakes I would not sin, lest my blight bl oddcl to theirs." - ife- (i : tJ . ..... STEUBENVILLE, "Ila ! the Woman dreams of restoration ; know you not, fair lady, the world has set the seal of degradation on your brow al ready? What matters it, then, whether you havo sinned or not, while tho world names you among its fallen and far soon er would Allan Evcrard take to his bosom a viper to nurse than one who has once betrayed. Why should you toil day by day, but only at last to starve or sin, if sin there bo in sniiliucr on lovo like mine." Thero arc times when tho heart is goad ed to its utmost, by the iron of stern suf fering, until every fibre seems brushed and incapablo of resistance; and so it was with Lucy Kverard, as sho said, without once raising her eyes from tho floor "As live was restored to Eden, so do I dream of restoration. When tho bodv' J hath toiled, suffered, until tho worn out spirit seeks another sphere, then, and then only do I hope for re-union. Oh, I am not tho vain creature to bclicvo he would forgive but for my child's sake I would not sin." 'Your child !" and the stranger's Jin curled in derisive triumph, as tightly gras ping her arm until sho fairly shivered from tho pain, ho continued "listen, Lucy Kverard ; a month ago they said he was dying dead he must bo by this time, and they said his mother's was an inter dicted name. Aye! what of the past havo you to live for now all, every ves tige of it is gone no trace, no mark left." There was a wild confusion in her brain, a feeling that she could fling herself upon the destroyer's bosom in ecataey of laugh ter, and tell him sho would go where he went it mattered not what became of her now, for every light was darkened. And ho saw it all ; knowing, too, that tho cup of cold water, standing on the table, would restore to tho excited brain its clearness, send from the heart the fever vein gnaw ing at its very vitals yet gavo it not, but watched for tho light of reason to waver. But it did not entirely fail. It was dark, very dark in the mist that enshrouded her brain but slowly there camo a glimmer ing light, borne by a tiny angel that had once oallcd her mother, and it whispered, "never more should tho light fade out on her pathway that he was waiting to clasp her in his arms when sho reached the por tals of death, and but a step divided them." No, sho would not yield now, when tho heaviest clouds wcro over ; and sho rose from her seat scarcely less beauti ful than the angels, and whilo her thin lip quivered with intenso emotion, said Onco beforo I told you my lips should never belie my heart; now I tell you, death, misery, privation and suffering of every kind might como, and I would not yield my hopes of heaven for the brightest bliss earth ever witnessed. No, I can dio now, and no sin can bar mo from my child no unforgiven crimo shut mo from yon bright land. I spurn you I detest jrou and yet may God for give, and teach mo to do tho same." Thero was a flood of eloquent words. had well nigh said love but that sin can never bo yet they fell unheeded on Lucy Kverard, as sho knelt in tho moonlight and tried to murmur, "God bo merciful even unto me." Hour after hour passed, arid external things rivited not her atten tion nothing savo tho simple prayer pas sed her lip's." Dimly camo tho morning light creeping up tho eastern skies, slow, but not tho less suro; and ono by ono tho misty clouds dispersed until the whole cast was an. in termingling of roso, gold, and fawn color, tinged hero and thero by blue and yellow, and then suddenly, like the upraising of a lark, camo tho glorious orb of day; still Lucy Evcrard knelt thero olono. Tho warm breath of summer morn funned- her fevered brow, and brought oalmnesd to her heart; and' when she roso, there was a brighter light in her eye than had shone thero for many a long day, and new re solves had lent tho color of excitement to her ohcokw , But "a littlo, whilo, and tho toil, . the perplexing .cares wcro laid aside, and sho turned, her 'weary feet from' tho city, ( No gleam of gorgoousness lingorod in. her hcar it had , been too long and sovcrcly tried ; no blessed . rest was thorc for ; her, and, ; sho was going whero one, dearly loved still, might , lay .his hand l.upou her and say, "go in peace, aud may OHIO, fylURSDAY, 'MARCH 29, 855, -j.- God forgive you ev a as I do." Now, yi his bereavement, his heart would bo'lcw! proud, and he would . not refuse he tho onlyboon sho asfeed and , ther?fwhen dcatV fcame, sho could seek Jier child's grave, and, leaning m throbbing head on the grassy mound, sink.,. in to dreamless quiet. Many atimedid her Ktrength well uigh fail her, but well she knew the race was not to the swift, nor the battle to tho strong; and this thought gave her new strength each day; but when at last Koscdcll was reached, it seemed as if she could lay down and sleep forever in the grand old woods. Oh, how beautiful, though toll, dark., trees looked, and tho wind swept through the leafy branches melodiously, and the rivulet trilled along with a low, gushing song. Through an opening gleamed the vine-clad cottage, but her eyes grew dim when sho gazed upon it, and sadly she turned away, fcel- mg uceper man ever tier own unworthi ncss. Then sho bathed her heated brow from the limpid stream, and sat down to rest on a mossy stone. Thero gleamed bright sparks before hor eyes, and half in sensibly a soft dreaminess stole over her spirit a moment, and sho was asleep. Tho birds sang lower, and the winds breathed softer, as if they would fain havo comforted her. Allan Kverard stood by his dying child, watching anxiously counting, miser-like each golden sand in the cup of life ga zing wistfully'(on oair boy, as if ho would hnvc Iiuxd him back hi a fijiid pas sionate cmbraco from tho tyrant death. ; lie had schooled his heart for parting calmly the words, "no hope," had fallen on his car and he had looked on his childs' wasted face, knowing he must dio ; and now, when tho hour of parting had come, convulsively he clung to tho last vestige. Oh no ! his fair boy must not die he could not be left all, all alono, and as ho paced the floor, he felt ho had put from him tho clear blue sky, and clung to tho gorgeous rainbow the bright, beauti ful, but evanescent semblance. Brightly shono the sun merrily sang tho birds gladly danced the butterfly o n the wayward breeze, and the flowers shook their cups together, scattering floods of fragrance all around ; all without was glad, but within the father sadly watched his dying child. "Father ! " ond the suffering man star ted from his reverie, and gazing upon his child said, "what, dearest?" "Father," continued tho boy, and his tones were hardly more than a bird-like whisper, "when I am gone, you will be very sad and lonely then will bo nono left to walk with you in tho forest, or read to you no ono to lovo you will bo all alono." "I know it,"r murmured tho father, "I shall bo very lonely would I toocould die." "Noj father," and a strange light shono on the pallid face, " not yet, but when am gone, and you feel this utter desolation, will you not seek my mother, and tell her how we have watched and prayed for hor -that we never forgot her, and that in heaven I will plead for her still ? Per haps she, too,, is praying for us ; will you not do ihis for my sake, father V "So help mo God, I will seek- her, and tell her all-r bring her back to her cottage home,' and never more shall she know sor row : and his stern nature bent to the love of a simple child. And tho boy looked love unutterable, while his thin lips essayed to speak, but their strength was failing fast. Oh, beautiful ho seemed as ho lay dying ; but must she, for whom ho had breathed his last request, linger until the spirit was en tirely gone nevermore gaze in those 11 quid eyes never kel his warm kiss, and hear, him say, ''mother?" : No,: not so was it to be. Thorc was a speck in tho sky, a tiny , oloud, and larger, . larger it grew, until tho tnid heaven was reached and the sun darkened. Fitfully did the wind bent against the casement among the rich clustering vines, making tho very air of the room redolent with balmy fragranco, and slowly camo the large drops of rain pattering on tho window sill, and rebound ing on tho gravel walkB. Fuster it came, mingled with the roar of hcavca's artillery, and vivid flashes of brilliant lightning, and the father looked sadly forth oh ! bitter was his lot not even a calm, tranquil hour for his pure child to dio. There was a low knock at the door, and ho started lingering a moraont to listen if it wcro tho storm ; but again it came, and then he rose, but ere ho reached it the door was flung wide open from the vi olence of tho wind, and tho next moment there was a senseless mass of clay in his arms. When Lucy Evcrard left her cottage home, the hue of health was on her cheek, and a bright light in her eye proudly she had crossed tho threshold ; when she returned all was gone she was faint and weary, with no color on her cheek, and her long hair hanging in dishevelled mas ses, glistening With the spray ; but dearer, far more precious than beforo to one heart for it seemed sunshine out of a dark cloud, and he kissed her pale check, murmuring all tho whilo words of endearment, and trying to restore life and animation. And he succeeded. Slowly came the pulsation back to tho heart, and though sho lifted not up the largo languid eye, yet ho knew the love-light had not entirely burned out, and in a transport of joy and thankfulness clasped her to his bosom. . Wildly every pulse thrilled through her fragile frame; welcome liko this sho had never dreamed of, and she murmured j slowly, without raising her eyes from the floor, "they told me our child was dead, and I thought perhaps your heart would be less stern in the depths of grief, and I sought you to tell my sorrow, and ask if thero was forgiveness for ono like mo." "I too have folt the need of that bles sed power," replied Allan Evorard, and learned to pray, 'forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.' Your path has been weary, dark, and desolate, but not sin like mine ; for ever lingered the thought that I had wres ted from God retribution, and dealt hardly with one gem. He had given mo to love. Oh, Lucy, it was bitter to think its keep ing would ono day bo required of mo, and if tarnished or lost, tho blight would be all my own; it was dreary to know my hand had destroyed another's happiness," and the proud-hearted man bowed his head. Lucy Evorard bent liko a comforting angel over him, and said, "we have both sinned, but our child in heaven Bhall be mediator, and though I may not rest on your bosom, nor be to you what I once was, I will feel content with forgiveness." "No, not dead, Lucy; still has his spirit lingered for your words to fall onco raoro on his car; it could not go clouded by a single shadow to tho land of fadeless bliss together wo will see him die, and thon wo part not till wo reunite with him come, and twining his arm round her slender waist, he led hor to the bedside ; just as tho sun looked out from the dark covert that had enshrouded it, and burst in rays of dazzling effulgence Oh, it must be a dream it could not bo her own child sho gazed upon and her brain grew dizzy with the excitement. Gently did sho pass hor arm undor his fair shoulders and pillow his head upon her breast, whilo the fount of maternal love swelled to overflowing. And the dying boy gave back the look in mute, eloquent language, twining his fingers with hers J then faint, quivering sound fell on her car, tel ling the cherished dream of life had met its realization. "Motherl the first and last tweet sound Hia infancy had known ; For in that umile, that fnint erabraeo, . The boy't young soul had flows'. ' High up, through immensity of space, burning myriads of stars, and blue ethe real elouds far, far beyond them, dwelt a glorious king,, surrounded by millions of puro spirits, that ministered day ond night nor knew weariness ; streets of shining ond streams of living waters, whoso trans. parence glinted and gleamed fa dcloss flowers, , that shook, their wealth of fra grance over the vast plains, and ono. end less .day shono on . it all, needing neither light of sun, nor moon, nor stars. . Before the glorious . king , knelt , an angel, and earthward she pointed . lo where, , kindred spirita were seeking each other; nil cs .trangement and coldness had faded from J2- their hearts, aud their voiceless prayer camo in soft cadence to that far off land); and the king turned to tho angel on hia right hand With a sweet smile, and she wroto a magic word in letters of liquid gold, whose very brightness crusod many a blot and unseemly mark mado there be fore. Then aroRO tho kneeling angel, and wa ved her bright pinions floating slowly through the balmy breath of Heaven, down lower and lowcr until she seemed but a tiny speck a moment, and she came again, but not alone ; for closo to her bosom sho held a star, that had sparkled untarnished for a while on earth, and she bore it to tho feet of tho glorious King, who took it in his arms, and said, in a tone that sounded like the commingling of harp and lute, ond the sweet music We dream of at, eventide. "Suffer littlo children to come unto mo, and forbid them not;', and tho holy angols tunod anew their gol den harps, and sang : "And thou ilialt dwell in world of light, ftor eror bo a cold ; And lilliee puro and lunboaroi bright, . Shall thy young lirabi enfold. I A nd thou sbalt walk 'nenlb shdy treca, By awoet pellnoid streams, Where wanderi every fragrant breree. And golden sunlight gleams. And thou ibalt know no day nor night, Hor burning heat nor cold, But walk m every gorgeous light Amid the atreets of gold. Thy happy foot shall tread where flower . Their fragrant incense fling, And find amid Elyaiutn bowers A fair pwpotual spring." In after years, thero was a pleasant hum of voices in Allan Evcrard's cottage, min gled with the restless patter of childhood's busy foet; and tiny hands parted the vinos into loop-holes, where tho sunny eye might gleam through, and tho merry laughter rang like silver bells upon the stilly air ; and tho father's brow lost ite sternness, as he smiled to see the little ones climb his knee at nightfall for a bles sing, ere they laid themselves down to slumber. And there was ono pale, but beautiful face, upturned confidingly, where he might read in tho light of tho beaming eye, happiness that words wore but weak and faint to express ; and when they knelt together at eventide, enfolded by the wings of an angel watcher, whose unchain ed radiance glittered ever on their path way, each felt that suffering had strength ened tho heart and purified even lovo it self. . For the True American. Taxes and State Expenditures. In my first number I pointed out the expenditures for the support of the gener al government of the State of Ohio, inclu ding the expenses of the bonevolcnt instl tutions and tho Penitentiary. I included two years, ono under the old, and ono un dor the new constitution. In tho present number I proposo to treat of eur State debt, its origin, tho purposes for whioh it was croatod, its extent, how fur it has been reduced, its present amount, the annual interest payable upon it, the public works resulting from the creation of the debt, and the annual income derived from them. I shall study brevity as far as is consistent with clearness and accuracy. This is the third head of my general divis ion. I propose to pass over the second head until the last. . In 1825, the Stato undertook a system of publio improvements. Two canals were projected, to reach tho interior of the State, at different parts, by artificial navi cation. Ono was to extend from Ports. mouth, on tho Ohio river, by the valleys of the Scioto, tho Tuscarawas ond tho Cuyahoga rivers, to Lako Eric, at Clove land. Tho other commencing on the Ohio river at Cincinnati, extended by the valley of tho Miami river to four miles abovo Piqua, in Miami county. Somo short branches, chiefly useful as feeders,' wero connected with them, The length of tho first, inoluding feeders, was three hundred ond thirty-three miles, of tho sec ond ninety-seven miles. -Tho first cost $4,244,539 04, tho second S1,24G,2G9 GO. They wcro completed in 1835. Tho funds were chiefly obtained by borrowing on tho credit' of the Sinteon a'.Wg tcrtrl, at six P E R A N'N UjM? INVARIABLY IS ADVAKCEr VOLUME I.

They havo yielded an avefttgo annual net income from 1833 to 1851, of about 4 per cent, on their cost. Their influ ence in promoting tho settlement of tho interior of tho State, and developing its resources, was very great. This sjiccess stimulated to farther and less prudent ex ertions. In tho winter of 1835-6, the Board of Publio Works (whose members opposed further undertakings at that time) was changed, and the Miama extension canal, from near Piqua to Lake Erio, the Wabash nnd Erie canal, tho Warren coun ty carial, the Hocking canal, the Walhoh ding canal, tho Muskingum Improvement, and the Western Reserve and Maumoe Road wero all authorized to bo undertaken, or so many of them 8S the Board should be of opinion would yield a net annual in come of six per cent, on their cost. ; In April, 1886, the J3oard, by a Binglo reso lution, undertook the construction of all these works. They were finally completed in 1844, after great financial embarrass ments. In the mean time, whilst matters seemed prosperous, the State subscribed Stock in the Ohio & Pennsylvania, -the White Water and Milan canals, and in a great number of rail roads and turnpikes. To aid the State in these undertakings, the United States who still held the title to a largo part of the lands, gave large bodies of lands from which the Stato real ized over $1,500,000. The investments in rail road and. turnpike stocks, and. in the Ohio & Pennsylvania canal, the Whitewater canal, and the Milan canal, was, from the best data in my reach, , 82,954,512 77. On the 15th of Novem- bcr, 1847, whon, os I ascertain, it reached its highest point, the State debt amounted to 819,492,895 21. Tho annual interest, for that year, was 81,179,073 70. Som. small loans had been etlccted at fire per cent., for others seven per cent, had boon . contracted and paid. . , . This would leavo for the cost of lha works abovo enumerated, undertaken in 1836, about $12,500,000.
