A whisper, wok tho air
A oft light tone and low, ;
Yet barbed with Bhame and woe ; V
Now might it only perish there ! '
Nor further gol . ' '
Ah me ! a quick and eager car '
Caught up the little moaning sound!
Another voice has breathed it clear, -And
so it wanders round,
From ear to Up from lip to ear
Until it reached a gentle heart ;
And that it broke.
It was the only heart it found,
Tho only heart 'twas meant to find
When first its accents woke
It reached that tender heart at last,
And that it broke.
Low as it seemed to other's ears ; ,
It came a thunder crash to hers
That fragile girl, so fair and gay
That guileless girl, so pure and true !
'Tis said a little hummingbird,
That in a fragrant lily lay, . ',
And dreamed the summer morn away,
Was killed but by the gun's report
Some idle boy had fired in sport !
The very sound a death blow came !
And thus her happy heart that beat
With' love and hope so fast and sweet,
(Shined in its Lily, too
For who the maid that knew
But owned the delicate, flower-like grace
Of her young form and face 1 )
When first that word,
, Her light heart heard,
It fluttered like a frightened bird,
Then shut its wings and sighed,
And with a silent shudder died !
BEAVER OF NORTH AMERICA.
The natural habits of the Beaver are topics
so generally, though so imperfectly handled, that
we will rather speak at present of the manners
which it has been found to display in a domes
tic state, and of one or two other particulars less
I have kept several beavers, says.IIcarne, till
they became so domesticated as to answer to
their name, and to follow those to whom they
are accustomed, in the same manner as a dog
would do ; and they were as much pleased at
being fondled as any animal I ever saw. In cold
weather they were kept m my own sitting-room
where they were tho constant companions of the
Indian women and children, and were so fond of
their company, that when tho Indians wero nb
sent for any considerable time, the beavers man
ifested great signs of uneasiness; and, on their
return, showed equal marks ot pleasure, by
fondling them, crawling into their laps, lying on
their backs, sitting like a squirrel, and behaving
like children who see their parents but seldom
In general, during the winter they lived on the
6ame food as the women did, and were remark
ably fond of plum-pudding; they would eat par
tndges and Iresh venison very ireely, but I nev
er tried them with fish, though I have heard they
will at all times prey on them. In fact, there
are few graminivorous animals that may not bo
brought to be carnivorous.
Twenty-nve years ago, in return lor a piece
of red worsted binding which I gave to an Ar
Kansas squaw, sno presented me win a young
beaver about tho sizo of a cat; I was pleased
with tho acquisition, intending eventually to
, present it to my old friend Pcale, of the Phila-
delphia Museum. It had been strictly secured
from its birth, but on nil occasions, it showed
tho strongest inclination to approach the water
and make its escape; it was not mischievous,
and fed kindly on Indian corn, dried pumpkins
and green twigs. I carried it with me for a con
siderable timo while navigating on several of tho
Western rivers, and it became with mo a favor
ite, and a source of frequent amusement. At
all times guarding agninst an escape into run
ning or deep water, I was in the habit of induljr
ing it with a bath whenever I encamped at night
or stopped by day, if :i convenient stream or
pool presented on the sand beach. I carried it
in a barrel in my canoe, and to guard it from tho
intense heat of the sun, covered it with green
branches : but these would not exclude tho inos
quitoes, which tormented it incessantly, and to
such an extent, that I could riot resist its plain-
live moans, ana at lengm, most reluctantly, de
termined to release it; I accordingly removed
the leash by which it was held, and threw the
beaver from mo into the Mississippi, without the
slightest expectation of seeing it again; judo
then of my astonishment and delight, when, in
about ten minutes, having probably floated a
half mile, I heard it whine at my elbow; I ex
tended my hand and again restored it to the bar
rel ; and subsequently, during a thousand miles
of navigation, perhaps twenty times a day, I
threw it into the river, when, after it became
tired of its gambols in swimming and diving,
sometimes to great depths, and threshing the
water with its tail, it would again come to my
hand with an imploring look, to bo again taken
into the canoe. For near a month after my ar
rival at New Orleans, I was confined to my" bed
by extreme illness, and did not see the beaver.
When convalescent, , a friend carried me to his
country-house, many miles from New Orleans,
and ono day, when asleep, suspended in a ham
mock across the gallery, I was roused by tho
well known whine of my poor pet; it had that
day been brought Irom tho citv by some of the
plantation negroes, and turned loose, and in half
an hour had singled out his emaciated master,
and appeared to show evident symptoms of
pleasure and excitement on the occasion. This
animal always appeared sensible to kindness,
iiuu i'aijiuucu uii jusiiucb u hcuio us inueea
seemed like more than half-reasoning but not
sufliciently acute to escape death from tho rifle
of a Kentucky boatman, who took it to be a
straggler from some colony in tho far distant
Old Stickinthemind says ho never reads tho
detailed virtues of tho dead upon thoir tomb
stones, commencing with "here lies," but he
thinks sodoes the inscription.

CoALi.t Oregon. The editor of the S;h
Francisco Commercial Advertiser states he has
recently consumed some coal brought by Mr.
Horatio Blaudell, from within three miles of
the navigable waters of the Coquilla river, Ore
gon. This coal promises to answer all the re
quircment of the ordinary uses, and Is, apparent
ly, well adapted to steamships. It burns brill,
iantly and rapidly, and Is much liku the an
thracite in appearance. Tho Coquille river
empties into tho Pacific about 30 miles below
the Urapqua. Tho river lies about 20 miles bo
low Port Orford, and thero is a good road to
the cmbarcadeor. The coal was first discovered
at the foot of u high bank, where the earth had
been washed away by the last winter's flood.
It runs about sixty feet below the surface of tho
earth. Chicago. Dera. Press.
Be Kind to the Stock. It is much less la
bor to take care of animals that are docile and
quiet than those that are uneasy and fractious.
They tcill soon catch the spirit of your own tern
fr. If your words ana actions are kind and
gentle, they will come to their places with con
tidence, and allow you to handle them pretty
much as you please. Taken from green, suc
culent food, and fed mostly upon ha, they need
an occasional feed of pumpkins or roots, to
break them off gradually, and accustom them to
their winter fodder. New Eng. Farmer.
Take Care of the Orchard. The orchard,
to be productive of good, fair fruit, requires to
be fed as much as does a field of grain. The
soil of each requires that the substances nb-
J stracted by the crops shall bo restored. The
soil should be Kept clean, ana open to the me
liorating influence of the sun, the dews, the
rain, and the air. The bark of the trees should
bo kept in a beautiful condition by scraping,
when necessary, and by alkaline washing.
Milch Cows. The winter treatment of cows
should be well looked to. Moderately warm,
and well-ventilated quarters, succulent food
night and morning, clean beds, and occasional
saltings, aro necessary for their health and com
fort. Those who wish their cows to give largo
quantities of milk in tho winter season, should
give them warm drink. Tho extra trouble will
be more than repaid by tho increased quality of
