wide before him is his harvest—Death.

was the fairest flower in the possession of

A wife's deep love all selfishness debars
From the pure fount whence its affections rise,
Ceaseless its watchings, and the glowing stars
Keep not more constant vigil in the skies.
It knows no change danger, disease, or death
May bid it turn from where it learns to love
It lives while life retains its fleeting breath,
Then passes on to kindred realms above.

Go ihou, man celibate, and therefore,

gentle being with whom to share the bles
sings of unclouded manhood. Knit her
affections to yours by the holiest ties—the
tic lhat has its upsprinoing at the altar, its
decline (if you regard it rightfully) in the
grave. Let her share with you in your
joys, and mv life on it, she will not shrink
from the endurance of your sorrows. Clo
ser than the links that bound the Moabitish
woman to ihe sorrowing Naomi will be
the bands that unite her sympathies—her
life—with yours. When comes the tem
pest of adversity, the more insidious foe
man disease, then will she prove the min
istering angel that I have witnessed to
night, and to purchase which, a life-time
of kindness on your part would not be an
unequal equivalent. Go then, and before
your manhood draws to this arctic twilight
before age with its weariness and its con
sequent misanthropy pall over you with
its sunless sky, earn a right to the conso

about as Israel was accompanied by the

am very cold. How the wind
shakes this frail cabin. Ah it was not so
in Alman Castle, when your dear father
lived. The meanest hand had then a com
fortable toof and plenty of fagots. Little
did he think his wife and child should ev
er suffer thus.'
The speaker was a lady already advan
ced in years, whose originally fine dispo
sition, penury and disease had rendered
querulous, i he person she addressed sat
by the scanty fire, preparing the evening
meal, for although the storm rendered all
without dark, the hour was not yet thai
of the usual twilight. Clad in coarse and
faded garments, with hur lovely face worn
with sorrow and care, it would have been
impossible to recognize in her the once
pround heiress but for her graceful figure,
the proud eye, and the air of refinement
about her face and movements, which
nothing could conceal. She heard her
mother's command with a sigh, gazed
wistfully on the sole remaining fagot, and
then mournfully continued her occupation
Clara Alman had been born in almost
princely halls, and educated as ihe heiress
of the broadest domains in the north of
England. Up to her fifteenth year the
sun of her prosperity had been unclouded.
?he was beautiful even beyond her sex,
and already surrounded by noble and wor
thy suilois. To one of these she had
pledged her virgin heart. All the deli
cious emotions of a first love ware hers,
and life seemed to lie before her, like a
flowery path beneath a summer morning s
sun.
All at once a clouiLcame over her sky.—
It was the era of the crusades and when
the lion hearted Richard assumed the cross
her father, and subsequently her lover fol
lowing his example, set forth in his suite
for the Holy Land. With many tears Cla
ra and her mother saw them depart but
honor bade them forward, and the wife
and daughter, even amid iheir sorrow, felt
they could not persuade them to remain.
A long year passed, then another, and
then a third. At first Clara heard at long
intervals from hers'iitor, but in the second
year ihe intelligence arrived that both he
and her father had fallen, in a deadly ski1""
mish with ihe Saracens led by Saladin in
person. The melancholly news was,
few months later, confirmed by ihe arri
val of a
squire

of the late lord, who said
he had seen hi? master fall in battle

added that Clara's suitor had been slain in
attempting to save her parent. This cir
cumstantiul account destroyed the last hope
lingering in the bosom of Clara and her
mother, and they wept long and deeply,
almost benumed by grief.
But from this sacred sorrow they were
suddenly and rudely awoke. The"vasi
estates of Alman, though entailed in the
male line, were to have descended to Cla
ra on her marriage, by the consent of ihe
King.—But ihe deed had never been made
Richard was now in prison in Germany,
and his base brother John ruled unright
eously in his stead. The claimant lo ihe
estates was in high favor with ihe disso
lute prince, and now came forward to de
mand the domains. Rage and revenge
were uppermost in his heart, for he had
been a rejected lover of Clara and hav
ing renewed his suit, after the death of her
intended husband, had been again refused.
Malignant by nature and pitiless from de
praved habits, he Ml no remorse in eject
ing both mother and daughter from their
habitation, and leaving them utterly un
provided for, to the most abject poverty.
All appeals to the prince were in vain.
He stooil too much in need of supporters
to his usurped throne, to venture a rupture
with the possessor of the Alman manors.
Since this event nearly the who'e of a
long year had elapsed, which had been
spent by the sufferers in mingled grief and
penury. Winter had now come, and the
rude cabin in which they had found shel
ter many leagues away from their old res
idence, shook in the tempest, while the
snow beat in between the chinks, and the
cutting blasts sent a chill lo the very hearts
of the inhabitants.

Mulier copio, non est
Why don't you put on another faggot?'
querulously said the sick mother, as a rude
gust whirled through ihe leaky lattice, and
made her shiver. Poor Clara, though far
less warmly clad, endeavored not to ap
pear cold, but the icy blueness of her skin
contradicted her demeanor. The tears
gushed into her eyes. She looked around.
Dear mother,' she said,

endure this cold no longer. I feel I shall

Mother,' said the devoted girl, running
to her and clasping her around, I will hold
you in my arms all night. I am young,
and can impart my warmth to your frame
—Cheer up, dear mother,' she continued,
though in a voice of alarm, for fright, and
the bitter chilliness of the atmosphere were
rapidly producing a fearful change in the
parent's countenance,
41
now.—Eat—and
4
will put on the
other faggot—we will eat our scanty sup
per, and you shall drink the last cup of
wine. We kept ii for an emergency, and
when can we better use it. To-morrow
will be clear—I know it—I feel it, and
then we can get all we want, for I will
beg for it sooner than see you thns Dear,
dear mother, see—the fire burns brightly
we will seek rest—and
you shall all night sleep warmly in my
arms.'
God bless you, my child,' said the
mother, and the tears gathered into her
eyes,
but 1 fear the wor^t,' she continued,
with a desponding shake of the head.
4The
storm looks as if it would last for
days—then what will become of us
Clara shuddered. Her heart felt as if
oppressed with a mighty load, for as she
listened she recognized those deep tones
in the tempest which always forebode a
duration of some days. Had it not been
for the presence of her mother, whom she
fell ihe necessity of encouraging, she
would have sat down and wept in despair.
Suddenly there was a knock at ihe door.
Both females started and looked at each
other. Clara hesitated lo move. A voice
was now heard asking admittance from
ihe awful storm, which the traveller said
surpassed any he had ever witnessed.
Fear was no part of Clara s nature. Her
heart was ever open to pity. Without
further thought she unbarred the door. A
tall figure, wrapped in a knight's cloak,
followed by a servant, entered. The in
truder lifted his cap as he came in, display
ing a weather beaten face, surmounted by
thick
locks of grey. He shook the snow
from him, advanced to the fire, and then
with surprise in every feature of his coun
tenance ranged around the room.

Clara,

have you been brought to this
pass
Clara, for her mother was unable to
compose herself sufficiently to become the
narrator, now related the story of theirpi*
pulsion and subsequent suffering.
By St. George,' said the irrascible earl,
starting up with flashing eyes and shaking
his clenched hai.d fiercely,
41
u ill pull the
beard from the miscreant for this outrage.
Richard has returned, know Jre, my sweet
daughter,' his mood changing, and he ac
companied the words hy drawing Clara to
his bosom—4 the king shall have his own
again, and we will rout this villiain from
my father's castle, ere a fortnight* ti
The lover now fur the first time iutiB*
posed.
Should we not, before we talk further,k
he said,

procure fuel for the fire Hap-
pily I noticed a ruined shed, about a hun
dred yards distant. I will go and tear
enough of it down to keep up a roaring
fire until morning.
4
Well said, and I will assist yob,' said
the bold earl.
In a shun lime they had brought to the
hut and piled up in one corner the neces
sary fuel. As ihe last load was cast down
the earl turned to Clara, who was weep
ing and smiling by turns at this great
change in their circumstances.

There, now lhat Lord Henry has won
it, go to him with a kiss, you weeper,' ho
said with almost boyish spirits, 'and he
will tell you how lie did not perish in tho
battle, but, stunned like myself and buried
Saracens^ "and how after a long confine
ment, we escaped together, and have finals
ly reacecd home. I will tell the same to
your mother—go, sweet one, but first glfli
your father a kiss.'
That was a happy night in the hut oft
the heath. As the old earl said afterward,
never in the proudest halls, had he speut
one like it.
Little remains for us td tell* The n|g$t
morning saw the sun shiuiug orightly on
the landscape, and ere noon the whole par
ty, deserting the frail cabin, had found re
fuge in a hostel, about four miles distant,
which the earl had been seeking ihe p#
ceding night, when, in the darkness, b4
lost his way.
The return of Richard spread uuiversal
joy among his people. The flght of
prince John wa* followed by that of his
chief favorites, who justly dreaded the
wrath of the monarch to whom they had
proved traitor?. Clara's unworthy cousin
hearing at the same time of ihe return of
his monarch, did not wait for the appear
ance of the latter but took ship immediate-'
ly for France.
Great were the rejoicings at Alman Can
lie when the bold earl once more took hit
seat on the dais in the greal banqueting
hall, and greater still were ihe bonfires and
congratulations when, a few months later,
the lady Clara became ihe wife of him she
had loved so long.

he is now furnishing weapons for ilie Federal

Federal prints, are now quoting his denuncia

and the principles which they advocate. These
quotations are gathered from the Democratic
Review, for which Mr. B. now writes, having
an unexpired contract to fulfil with its publish
