By the side of swret Alice they have laid Ben Bolt.
.. Where often he longed to repose ; .
For there he would kneel with tho early spring
flowers, .
And plant o'er his darling the ro3c.
His heart was as truo as the star to his gaze,
When tossed on tho billows alone, ..;
But now it is cold and forever at rest,'
For he calmly lies under the stone.
How often his eyes were seen brimming with toars.
- To mingle with others in grief ; .
But joy would rekindle the light of his smile,
. When pouring tho balm of relief ;
At last he has gone to the bright spirit land,
And, free from all sorrow and pain.
He tastes the sweet rapture of angels above,
For ho meets with his Alice again.
Well gather the flowers from the green shady
And moss from the silent old mill.
To strew o'er the grave where obscurely repose
Tire hearts that death only could chill ;
And oft, when tho soul has grown weary and sad,
We'll come by tho twiligh alone,
To muse o'er the spot where, together, Ben Bolt
And sweet Alice lio under the stone.
What arc you dreaming about,Amy ?" asked
an old man with silver hair, of a blue-eyed
young girl, who was sitting on the steps by
his side, her head leaning against a vine
ivreathcd pillar. "What are you dreaming of,
Amy? Yon have set here for over an hour in
this abstracted mood, looking at those clouds.
"What are you thinking of?'
The questioning voice of her father broke
Amy?s reverie; but, as she changed der posi
tion, her dreamy eyes were veiled by the vein
ed lids, and the rosy check, whereon those
dark, drooping lashes lay, were scarlet. In a
moment she replied, "Oh, I was thinking of
nothing in particular; building air-castles as
usual, imagination piloting me fnto fairy land.
Not very profitable oenpationfor one like me,
is it, pa?"
Just then the sound of rolling car iagc wheels
was heard, and an open carriage came along
the road. The occupant, a proud dark-eyed
man, doffed his hat and bowed low to Amy
and her father. Mr. Lansing did not reply,
save by a slight inclination of the head and a
haughty look. But Amy bowed and sweetly
smiled as she did thus, and her ehecks flushed.
Mr. Lansing's eyes were shaded, and his brow
was darkened as he saw Amy's appearance.
The carriage passed on, and Amy was again in
a reverie; but she was startled from it by her
father's saying
. "Amy, do you love that man that detesta
ble Clifton Maxwell?"
Amy's cheek grew still brighter, and the
blue eyes were veiled again, and her snowy
finger destroyed the gorgeous tulip she held
In her hand the tulip given her by Clifton
Maxwell the evening before.
Again Mr. Lansing asked "Tell mo truly,
Amy, do j ou love that low-bred man?"
In a moment Amy's eysc flashed, but she
restrained herself and calmly answered "
Clifton Maxwell is not low-bred. lie has a
true, a noble heart one of Nature's noble
men. And blame me if you will; I do certain
ly love him."
"Amy Lansing!" and her white-haired fa
ther spoke sternly," Amy Lansing, I forbid
that love.' I forbid you evermecting him again.
I forbid all intimacy, iVuder penalty of my dis
owning you forever. Besides, you are too
young to love. Remember, Amy, dare to diso
bey mc on your peril!" and ho left her to her
unpleasant meditations,
; "Too young to love!" murmercd Amy but
her pale, cold face, and eyes heavy with the
deepness of sorrow, told a far d Cerent talc from
""Mr. Lansing, I came hereto ask permis
sion to address your daughter," said a young
man, who stood in the rich library of Mr. Lan
sing, one evening.
Mr. Lansing locked up haughtily, for he
knew it was Clifton Maxwell. What did he
care for that dark, soul-lit oyc, that massive
brow, that proud head, that regal form so
lofty, so kingly all the hearaldry and insig
nia of inward nobleness and dignity? What
mattered tho noble, generous heart? What
mattered it, that he passionately loved Amy?
He had no coflers filled with gold, no broad,
ancestral lands, no high home, no perals to
wreath with Amy's golden tresses, no diamond
bandcaus for her snowy. brow. Amy must
wed higher; she was too young to lovo such a
poor man as Clifton Maxwell; and so Mr. Lan
sing coldly said
"That permission is denied, now and forev
er to you."
Clifton coldly bowed and asked the reason.
"I have none!" said Mr. Lansing, "save
that I do not deem you noble enough to be my
son; save that your station is not caqual; save
that Amy is too young to love."
"Mr. Lansing," said Clifton, calmly, "I
know that I am not wealthy, j-ct I have a good
practice, And you are mistaken about Amy;
t,ho does love me truly. She is not too young
to love. Beware how you trifle with her
young heart. Blood guiltiness may rest upon
your soul."
. "I tell you sir!" said Mr. Lansing, haughti
ly, "Amy is too young to love too young to
wed; and even if she were not' you could not
be my choice. When Amy weds, I shall se
lect for her: you can go, sir. But never dare
to speak again o my daughter."
With a cold, slight bow, Clifton left the
"Good bye, Amy," said Clifton, as he stood
in the garden alone with Amy; "I cannot stay
here. It would be an agony to be thus near
you never to see you, never to speak to you.

"God forgive my father for this!" said Am v.
calmly, as she raised her face, so cold, so pale,
so deadly, from her lover's shoulder. "God
forgive my father this crualty. I am not too

wed against my father's wishes.- You are no
ble, that you do not urge mc to that sten
uooa bye, Amy," again said Clifton, as he
kissed the stainless brow resting against his
check. "We shall never meet again. I leave
America forever. Good bye, Amy; naught
out a loving death for us both. Would that
God had never given either of us hearts, then
we might never have felt the pain and anguish
of being crushed. Would that we had not met:
then we had not known the parting."
a caim and holy night, Amy lay on a rich
purple sofa by her open window, pale as the
Parian Pyschc by her side and almost as cold
Tt,n I 1 1 .H J, ,
xu omia iwm;u &;iuiy gnu solemnly in upon
ner, as n sad at the broken heart beating be
ncatn tnat silken boddice. The cool night
wind came and carrcsscd the brow, heavily
aching beneath its weight of pearls. A bridle
veil lay around her, with its shinning folds.
The betrothal ring gleamed upon her finger
She iay there pale, and faint, chaining down
the giant suffering which was making a wreck
of her young, loving heart crushing all love,
darkningall hope, veiling all with the sable
of dispair. .
A few moments and Amy'shands were clas
ped by others, and then she stood in the prince,
ly parlor below in the midst of brilliant festal
throngs by the side of a tall, dark man an
unwilling bride promising to love and cher
ish him till death should part them. False
promises, made with cold, quivering lips no
deep true response rising from the ruined
heart below. False vows written with the
very gall of dispair. Lips vowing to love one;
heart worshiping another, one who was fara
way one whom her father told her she was
too young to love. And she was Amy Frank
Iin the envied bride of a wealthy man a vie
tim to her father's aristocratic principles and
love of gold.
- vuiiic iinii: ii. is nine, inc carriage is
waiting," and Mr. Franklin threw the rich
opera cloak around Amy,s frail figure.
"Ilernion, I cannot go," said Amy faintly,
"I feel very sick and weak to-night. I dare
not go from home. You mnst go without me,
Ilermon, for once."
"Pshaw, Amy!" said the colb hearted hus
band, "you arc only hysterical. I am sure
you look well as usual. They will expect
"I would willingly oblige you," said Amy,
"but I dare not. But do not stay at home I
am not afraid to stay at home."
'It's nothing but your whim," said Mr.
Franklin, impatiently, as he shut the hall door,
and entered his rich carriage to be borne away
to the rirh saloons of Mrs. G .
The pale, girlish bride of the golden sum
mer days sat there alone in the spacious draw
ing rooms. It was all rich, all grand, all beau
tiful, all cold, all false glitter, all icy, like her
own ruined heart. A velvet robe was bound
around her tiny waist, jewals shone on her
white arms and fingers, pearls are braided
with her heavy goiden hair, and bright dia-
iuoiius iay on ner paio brow of transparent
beanly all a cold, heavy mocking weight, all
a bright disguise for the victimized bride.-
fciie lay there alone on the crimson velvet
sofa no loved one near to sooth away the
lonely agony. Too young to love! Ah, no;
she had loved, and that love it was crushed
back. Its free, out-gushing fountain repres
sed. Its full tide sweeping imperiously back
on the frail young heart, until it was a week,
a terrible wreck slowly sinking down into
the dark, deep ocean of dispair, bearing life
ncath its heavy weight.
Down the wrecked heart goes neath dispeir's
surging waters, Love's pilot, gone forever
Hope's beacon star lost in tho gloom. False
vows for deep overwhelming billows. Hate,
disgust, called love, yet nothing but wrecking
shoals and quicksands. Golden wealth, gild
ing the ocean with a gorgeous glitter. A jew
elled veil, hiding the terrible wreck from the
cyse of fellow voyagers. Too young to love a
noble, truo souled man, but not to young to
lies the dead, sacrificed bride-victim.
Lips cold and still. Brow pulseless, cold and
white as frozen snow. Dreamy eyes closed
forever more. Face and features icy and
passionless. Ilands folded calmly over the
meek breast. The slight figure still and stif
fened in death. The heart pulseless and hush
ed. The wreck gone down forever. The
presence of Death alone in tho still silent par
lor. Too young to love, tho father deemed her,
yet not too young to be sacrificed not too
young to bear a broken heart; not too young
to have all that which was glorious of life for
ever wrecked; not to young to bear a living
death not too young to die!

Lord Byron once once remarked, 'Glory con

reported wrong in the dead and wounded list.'
We were never more strongly reminded of the
truth of this assertion.- and how little iho
great are remembered after their death, than
on hearing a few days since, the following an
ecdote of an eastern farmer, trying to repeat
the last words of tho 'Godlike Webster,' I
still live!' A gentleman remarked, 'Life is very
uncertain.' 'Ah, yes,' replied the farmer,
'that's true, every word of it ; and by-the-way,
Captain, that makes me think of what one of
your big Massachusetts men said when he died
a spell ago.' 'Who was it V inquired the Can-
tain. 'Well, I dont just call his name to mind
now, but at any rate he was a polititioner, and
lived near Boston, somewhere. My newspa
per said that when he died, the Boston people
put his image in their windows, and had a fu
neral for a whole day.' 'Perhaps it was Web

Would it not please you to pick up a string
oi pearis, urops oi gold, diamonds, and pre
cious stones, as you pass along the street ?-
u would make you leel happy for a month to
come, buch happiness von can srive to others.
How, do you ask ? By dropping sweet words,
kind remarks, and pleasant smiles as you pass
along. These are true pearls and precious
stones which can never be lost; of which none
can deprive you. Speak to that orphan chill:
see the diamonds drop from her checks. Take
the hand of that friendless boy ; bright pearls
flash in his eyes. Smille on the sad and de
jected ; a joy suffuses his cheek more brilliant
than the most splendid precious "stones. By
the waj- side, mid the city's din, and at the
fireside of the poor, drop words and smiles to
cheer and bless. "You will feel happier when
resting on your pillow at the close of day, than
if you had picked up a score of perishing dia
monds. The latter fade and crumble in time ;
tha former grow brighter with age, and
ducc happier reflections forever.
A Judge's Charge.
Judge Jonah Joles recently delivered the
following charge to the jury, in the case of
Elim Crunch for stealing :
Jury, you kin go out, and don't show your
ugly mugs here till you find a verdict if von
can't find one of your own, git the one the last
The jury retired, and after an absence of
fifteen minutes, returned with a verdict of
'Suicide in the ninth degree and fourth verse.'
Then Judge Jonah Joles pronounced upon
Elim Crunch this sentence: "Elim Crunch
stan' up, and face the music. You arc found
guilty of Suicide for stealing. Now this court
sentence ycu to pay a fine of two shillings, to
shave your head with a bagganet, in the bar
racks, and if you try to cave in the heads of
any of the jury, you'll catch thunder, that's
all. Your fate will be a warning to others; and
in conclusion, may the Lord have mercy on
your soul- Sheriff, get mo a pint of red-eye.
I am awful thirsty.

tude of your wife, what course should be pur
sned to avoid its consequences ?
Double her cape with your left arm, and let
your lips drop anchor on the cruising ground

on, every man of scDse S .
And get impressions of your faces.
To show your friends your many graces.
The dress is better to be dark;
But brown or Ted is just the mark. '
For these the contract plainly shows ,
Between the prrson and the CFotlw.
It's well enough the Sun should shine.
As this will serve to shorten time. "
But if it don't, and clouds be rife,
He'll t:ike your picture to the life.
Those little dinners, y'clept bales, .
Should never come 'midst clouds and shades.
But when the monarch of the skies, ,
His shining robes puts on, arise : -And
bring your little ont-s to me
And brightest pictures you shall see. '
Another theme the muse suggests,- ; . ,
To put all gloomy doubts to rest.
Such honest men as scruples feel.'
Lest wicked craft fresh from the deel
Should be invoked in place of art,
And made to act a wily part. - - '
