SHADOWS.
nv zun Lit.roun.
Clouds nre closing round me; o'er my heart
The I r shadowy forms are east
There terms no Joy Jn presont hours,
N'o gladneis In the past.
The future but one dreary blank,
A raylcsfj mist is there,
E'en thoughts of Fndnessscem too glad
Tor this wi'd, dark despair.
Knfh hour seems adding to my life
Almost a weight of years,
For clustering hopes ran never ine
With bitter, unhed tears.
1 know not why these a-iddecd hours
Seem now of life, n part
There nre no shadows round my pith,
They oil lie on my heart.
Tlio Condemned Patriot.
Written by a young Canadian Patriot the
evening Ufoic his execution.
Oh! must I die? nnd die 'so young; and
now, too, when the world lias just begun to
open to ruo in oil its perspective beauty ?
Oil I it is hard, hard thus to die to die tin
ignominious dctth upon tho scaffold, my
last moments to bo embittered by tho
taunting jests and ribaldry of my enemies.
Must I die thus ? I .could have met death
with fortitudo upon tho battle-field, but to
die the death of a felon ; how dreadful tin
thought 1 I, who havo indulged in tho
fond hopo of writing my naino high upon
tho scroll of famo, tuust I, ere the consum
mation of tho gjrca.t design, die die a
felon's death! Oh I must I bid an eternal
adieu to my aged oud beloved mother?
Yes, it must be so. In vain did you, my
mother, bow in humble supplication before
tho tyrant Colborne, to implore pardon for
your only ton. Yea, sho bowed befurc
hi,ui, ;uid with her hands extended in sup
plication, cried in wild tccenls of a mo
ther's wailing "OhI spare, spare my only
idolized son 1" but in vain sho might as
well implore pity of a famished tiger. The
monster Fpurued her from his feet. And
must I leave her too, w whom I have
breathed my vows of curly It vo? her whom
love with an attachment bordering on
idolatry with mi affection toi pure, t o in
itcnse, t-o holy for this life? Yes I For
to-moriow I tnut d o. Oh! jny Qod I
How I mcIicii nt the thought ; my brain

stand-, upon my brow; it seems like a hor
riblo dream which haunts me liko the in-

preparations are even now nvikiug for my
executi' n which epeka of death as truly

with its golden huo, tolls of departing day.
But away with these thoughts, they servo
but to unman mo ; I will be myself again ;
1 will dio as lecomes a Canadian Patriot!
Yes I who Jbavo fought tho oppressors of
my country, and i.ovor yet bowed tho kneo
in humble submission to man, will show
the murderer- Oolborno that though bis

"At whoso suit do you como?" Julia
nsked tho officer,
"At Mr. Eldon'a, madom. Ho holds a
noto of some thousands against Mr. West
bury, and thinks no time is to be lost in
making it secure. You havo jewels of
value, madam, which I was ordered to in
cludo in tho attachment."
" Will you allow mo a few minutes for
reflection?" said Julia, whoso faculties
seemed becumbed by tho suddenness of
tho blow.
"Cortainly, madam, certainly any ac
commodation in my power 1 shall bo happy
to grant."
"What can I do ? what ought I to do?"
thought Julia. " Oh, that Mr. Wcbtbury
were at home ! My. Evcleth yes i will
scud fcr him, ho can advise me, if the offi
cer will only wait."
" Will you suspend your operations for
half an hour, sir," asked Julia, " that I
may send lor a friend to ad visa and assist
mo?"
" Why, my timo is very precious, madam,
and my orders to attoud wero peremptory;
nevcithcJosSj half an hour will mako noj
great diffcreneo; so, to oblige you, I will
wait."
Tho pale ami trembling Julia instan ly
despatched a servant for Air. Kvilctb, and
in twenty minutes that gentleman arrived.
Ho was instantly made actpmi.ted with the
business in hand, and without hesitation
receiptee, lor tuo lurimure, aim dismissed
the officer. Jiilii felt relieved of an enor
minis bundon, wlicu, tho officer left the

transpired. Her later ue.p itched, she Had ,
nothing to do but wait in torturing sus-
pense, till she could either sec or hear from
him. .On tho third evening, as sho wjs
ritting with her eyes renting cn tho carpet,
alternately thinking of her husband, and
hex .own embarrassing situation, and tt
times raising her heart to heaven for
strength and direction as she was thus
sitting, in deep and melancholy musing,
Mr. Wcttbury entered the npurtmout
Quick as i.houht she sprang towards him,
exclaiming
11 Oh, my doar husband, how glad am I
diat yHi nre como ! Hut what is tho mat
ter?" tho cried, as'Lo sank into "a chair
" you aro very ill ?"
" I find that I am," said Mr. V csibury.
" My strength has just sufficed to fetch mo
homo."
Julia took his hand, and found it was
burninrr wilh fever, and instintlv dosnatch -
cd a servant for a nhvsician. whilo she
assisted her husband to his chamber Tho
medical gentleman soon arrived, and pro-
nounced Mr. Wcstburv in a confirmed
fever. For twenty days. Julia wa in tho
agony of suspense With intense anxiety
sho watched every symptom, aud adminis
tered every medicine with her own hand,
lest somo mistako should be mado. It
was in vain that tho physician entreated
her to take moro caro of herself; sho could
do nothing, but that whioh related to her
husband. When naturo was completely
exhausted, she would tako an hour's trou
bled repose, and then bo again at her post.
On every account, tho thought, of doath
was terrible. " To bo lost to mo," thought
she, " is uttcrably dreadful ; but oh, it .is a
(trifle compared to his being lost to himself!
Ho is nut fit for heaven, IIo has never
sought tho intercession of tho great Advo
cate, through whom alono wo can enter on
eternal life." How fervently did sho pray
that his life might bo prolonged 1 that ho
mignt como lorui irqm ins auuciioii u&u
gold sovon times refined !"
Mr. Westbury was exceedingly reduced,
but thoro had been no symptom of delirium,
though woaknoss and pain compelled him
to remain almost constantly silont. Occa
sionally, .however, ho expressed his grati
tudo to Ju)ia.fpr her unremitted attonlions;
ho bepged hor, for his sako, to tako all
posoiblo caro of her own health, for if her
strength Eliould fail, such another nurse
bo tender, so vigilant,. couljl not bo found
Julia entreated him to tako no thought
for her, as sho doubted not that her nea.
. vonly I athor would givo her strength for
the diechargo of cvury duty Sometimes,
when ho was uttorinj a fow words of com-
mcndation,sho panted to say, "Aiinoz moi,
auliou do moloucr;" but with a sigh, sho 1
would bury tho thought nt tho bottom of,
her heart, and proceed to tho discharge of j
her duties. Oftentimes sho jvoujd kneel
for an hour together, at his bedsido, when,
ho nppoarod to bo sleeping, with his hand
clasped in hers, dividing her timo between
counting his fluttering pulse, and raising
her hoart to heaven in his behalf,
But Julia's constitution was unequal to
tho task sho had undertaken. Protracted
fatiguo and anxiety did their work, and
on tho day that her husband wap pro
nounced convalescent, sho was conveyed
to a bed of sickness, Uuliko Mr. West
bury, sho was in a onustant state of deli'
rium, induced by mental anxiety and un
remitting watching, Most touchinjjly
wou'd sho bog to go to her husband, as ho
was dying for want of her care. It was
in vain that sho was told ho was better
was rapidly recovering, the impression was
gono in an instant, and her mind reverted
to his danger. Her physician was anxious
that Mr. Wcstbury should visit her, hoping
that tho sight of him might change the
current of her thoughts, and remove that
anxiety that greatly heightened her fever.
At tho .-end of ten days ho was able to be
supported tD her chamber, and advancing
to tho bedside, ho said
'f My dear Ju'ia, I am able to come
and mo you."
"Thank heaven," saiuVjJulia, clasping
her Lands and then raising her eyes, she
(added, " Heavenly Father, I thank thee !
Hut how sick you look," sho continued ;
' O pray go to bed, and I will como and
nurso you. I shall very soon bo rested,
and ihey will lot mo come,''
" I will set by, and watch and nurse you
now. Julia.'' said Mr. Wcstburv. "so Irv

" You called mo Julia,'' said she, smi!
mg; " 0, how sweetly that sounded ! Hut
I I will mind you, and try to sleep, for my
lioaU tc,3's strangely.
Mio closed her eyes, and Mr. Westbury

tho softest tone " 0, should he die without
over loving mo! dio without kn iwing
how much how judly I loved him '
Aud, O," bhc added, in a whisper, whilo
an expression of deep solemnity settled on
her .features " 0, should ho d o without
ever loving the blessed Saviour! that
would bo tho most dreadful of all 1"
Presently a noiso in tho street disturbed
her, and sho opened her eyes. Sho did
not see her husband, as sho had turned her
face a liltlo on tho other side, and calling
tho nurse, she said
" Do .beg them to mako less noiso ; thoy
will kill my dear husband; I know just
10W jt makes his poor head feel," and sho
clasped her otvn with her bonds,
JJr. Wcstbury'a feelings wero nuieh
moved, and his debility was such ho could
! with difficulty restrain them. IIo found
. ho ,mist return to his own chamber, and
taling his wifo's hand, ho said
" I hopo to bo able to como and seo you
. now cverv dav. mv dear Julia.
1 ' 0, do,'' she said, "and always call me
Julia, will vou? it sounds so kindlv!"
Scenes similar to this wcro constantly
recurring for tho next ten days. Mr.
Wcstbury continued to gain strength,
though his reoovcry was somewhat retard
ed by his visits to Julia's chamber, whilo
sho was gradually sinking under tho vio
lence of jier disease. Tho hopes, however,
whicji her physician gavo qf her recovery,
wcro not delusive. Within ihreo weeks of!
tho timo of her seizure, a crisis took placo,
and tho next day sho was pronounced out
of danger.
Soon after this, Mr. Wcstbury was ablo
to attend a little to business
tiino ho was in tho house
Julia's chamber. Ono dav.
i g0 far recovered her stremrth. so as to be
abloto sit up for an hour or two at a time,
ho chanced to bo loft alono with her.
"My dear Julia," said ho, as ho took
hcr.omaciatcd hand, and foldodit between
Lis own, "1 can never express my grati
tude for your kind attentions to an unwor
thy husband ; nor my thankfulness to
heaven that ypur precious lifo did not fall a
sacrifieo to your offoits to savo mine, I
hope tp prove by my futuro conduct that 1
havoiloarned to appreciato your value."
"IIo spoke in tho softoU tones of lovo,

'"0, 1 am so happy I" said Julia. ''Thoro

"And what is that, dearest ?"
"That you should givo your first, your

Julia clasped her hands together, loaned
ll(r face upon them, and for a long timo
remained perfectly silent. At leugth sho
raised her head, and said,
"Your fortune", 1 supposo is gono ; but
what of that? It was a trifle a toy

Mail Coach Upsit Down a Precipice.
On Thursday morning, at 7 o'clock, the
Hutler null stago stalled from Allegheny
City, with nn unusually largn number of
passengers sixteen insidp ond four or five
on the qutside. Ifothieg worthy of noto
occurred until thoy were nino miles out,
withing thrco quarters qf a milo pf Colt's
tavern, when ono of tho lead horses was
attacked with tho' blind "stagoors," and,
rolled over tho side of tho roid pulling along
the other leader, together with tho shaft
horses, and tho coach, down a prccipico
somo thirty feet deep, with rocks at tho
bottom, Mr. Jnhn McAllister, of tho
Second Ward, Allegheny City, wa3 tho
most sorious'y injured. Dr. Ormsby, a
passenger, cx&miucd him, and found that
two of his lower ribs wcro broken, spino
bruised, and tho skin rubbed off his back.
His head and shoulders wcro outsido, and
tho stago in striking, lodged fair across his
back whero it must have remained twenty
mineuts. Had it not been for tho yielding
naturo of tho ground, ho would no doubt
havo been killed. Tho other persons hurt
wero a young man named Itoss, of Alio
gheny, a Mr, McWhinley, of Pittsburg, and
an old lady with a little boy, oil of whom
had their Jogs moie or less crushed by
being caught underlie falling stage- Somo
of tho passengers continued their journoy
by tho next coach, others relumed to
Allegheny in market wagons, and all wore
exceedingly thankful that tho accident had
not resulted in a fatal termination.

prostrated before tho wheels, which passed
over both lcg3, cutting them almost entirely
off, and fracturing tho skull. tCr. Matthias

DEATH Or A YOUNO I.ADV IN THE CAHS.
A letter to a Western Editor relates the
following very affecting scene, of which tho
writer was an cyo witness :
"At Michigan city, whero wo changed
cars, we observed them moving .a sick girl.
Tho party consisted of a brother about
twenty years, a sister of about sixteen,
and tho mother. Tko .invalid appeared
about twenty-fivo, very emaciated, but
those lustrous eyes so common to her dis-caso-consumption
and which fascinated
while it pained us to Jook at her. The
tenderness and devotion of herpoplo wore
really beautiful. After we had gone somo
fifty miles, whilo she was reclining on her
mother s breast, wuo was gently anu care
fully smoothing hqr hair, sho suddenly
raided herself and fell back dead. Then
followed such a scone of wild and frantic
grief, mingled with tho noise of the rushing
cars,.tbo scroam of the loeomotivo, and tho
confusion of tho passengers, that no power
of mine can describe; and this was conti
nued for fifty miles more. Wo old tough
hearts found that there was ono spot not
quito hardened."

Tho Drops for 1857.
A journoy of somo three thousand miles
within three weeks past, in Now York,
Massachusetts, Hhodc Ifjand, New Jersey,
Pcnrjsylvjuin, Delaware, Maryland, Virgi
nia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri and
Iowa fourteen States in all enables1 U3 to
givo our readers the grateful assurnneo that
tho crops of tho present year, according fo
present pr mitsc, will bo unsurpassed, T ho
hay crop is already secure, and there is
lnrdly a moro important crop than this, or
one of which many portions of tho country
have stood in moro need during some months
past.
Immense quantities of wheat and drn
have been sowed Jn tho great West, and if
some, and oven much of tho winter wheat
has been killed, tho deficiency has been
many times mado up in tho abundance of
extra hnd planted. Tho season has been
everywhere a very backward one, aud oven
moro backward "in tho far West than in tho
East. In tlio jvestern part of Massachusetts
and Now York, considering (hp latitude,
the crop3 aro more advanced than in almost
any other portions of tho country. In
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, tho fields luok
as if thoro could bo no failuro or faminer
neither want or suffering. Tho acarciiy of
tho present, arising from two causes, specu
lation and emigration West, and which ha3
mado a citylilio St. I.puis a place of export
from even Westward is an event entirely
novel in its kind, and which oan hardly
occur again. Tho th msands who havo
gono West from Now England, tho Middlo
States, and the South, have had to bo
supplied from sources entirely now, and
produce, therefore is about dear at Cincin
nati, Chicago aud St. Louis, ns at Boston
and New York. Thoyearol 1867 promises,
wo aro happy to say, to be a year of abun
dance. Farmers will command good nnd
even high price, but not tho exorbitant
rates of the present time. No greater
blessing can befal tho nation than good
crops, and we ought to pray devoutly for
such a consummation. If. Y. Express.

has acquired somo celebrity as the inventor
of a trap for tho removal of tape worm?,

worthy of moro thin ordinary mention.
Mrs. D. llYAX,.of Fort Wayne, about 20
years of age, has been s:vercly afflicted for
four years with a sensation in the stomach,
as though there was somo reptile moving in it.
During that time she was treated for various
diseases by numerous physiciari3 of skill,
and by sovcral for tape worm. Hearing
of Dr. Meyeus' new process fcr the removal
of parasite from the human stomach, Mrs.
It. went to Lagansport, and placed herself
Within two weeks Dr. N. removed from
her stomach a sniue about 3 feet long,
and li inches in diameter, instead of ag
gravating it, a3 had been the result of tho
previous treatment sho received. Tholatter
part of , her illness sho was unablo to attend.ti
the domestic earo of her family or even to
tako caro of herself. It took two hours t
prepare for retiring at night, an equil
length of lime before sho could lio down
and often sho was deprived of sleep for
nights together. Frequently sho walked tho
tloor until exhausted, because unablo t' lio
