With eyes that are changed since the old time, And the sting of an exquisite pain. lis not much that I see for a picture, Through bows which are green with the spring, An old barn with its roof gray and mossy, And abore it a bird on the wing. Or, lifting my bead a thought higher, Some bills and a village I know. And over it all the blue heaven, With a white cloud floating below. In the old dy the roof seemed a priion, My mind and the sky were free. My thoughts with the birds went flying, And my hopes were a heaven to me Sow I come from the limitless distance Where I followed my jouth's wild will, Where they press the wine ef delusion That yon drink and are thirsty still: And I know why the bird with the Spring time To the gnarled old tree comes back He has tritd the South and the Summer, lie has felt what the sweet things lack. Sol come with a sad contentment, - With eyes that are changed I see : The roof means peaco, cot a prison. And heaven smiles down on me. DAVE PEAES0JT8 OOUETSHIP. "I tell you, Dave Pearson, you shall nev er call mc life!" . And as these words were uttered, Dave Pearson gave vent to a little chuckle, took a huge quid from a capacious box, and gazed thoughtfully from his cottage window upon the craft thut was floating past upon the Metetceunk river. I, the writer of this bketcli, was spending a few weeks in New Jersey, wild-fowl shoot ing along the shores of Siiuan, Barnegat, and in and about Little Eg Harbor Bay. Dare Pearson had been icy mentor and Loatuian. On our return one evening from a long and unusually successful day's sport, which had put Dave in an unconsciously good humor, he related to me the following story of his courtship ; how he came to do so was in this wise ; We had had our supper, and, with "jest a drop of so' thing to keep out the cold," we sat down to spend the evening, with my lips, and Dave with his inevitable tobacco box, as he never, under any circumstances, used the "divine weed," as somebody calls it, in any other shape than a chew. Just as his wife was leaving the room with the remains of onr meal, and to wash the dish es in the kitchen, I being an honored guest, I was assigned the parlor casually remarked, "That's a hard-working wife of yours, Dave." "Yes," said Dave, gravely stroking his chin, with a gratified smile upon hh honest countenance ; "and jest as good as she is hard-working. Do you know I came near not marrying her once ?" "You don't tell me ! llowjwas that, Dave?"' "Well, as you're a pretty good soit of a fellow, and as the old woman won't get through fixing up for some time, I don't mind telling you; lut Le careful never to mention a word to her, as she kind o' dis likes to hear about it." I readily gave the promise, and Dave again having resort to his box, placed both arms upon the table, and commenced. "When I was a young fellow it was along among the '40's, then I did what most young fellows do I foil in love. And, of course, like all young fellows in the same condition, at one time I was as happy as they say a clam is at high water, and at an other, as miserable as a sick rooster on a wet day. ' But that's neither here nor there ; the gal I was in love with was named Esther Hettrick. That's her," and Dave jerked his head in the direction of the kitchen. I nodded understandingly. "Well, you see, I was mighty poor in those days, that is, I was nothing but a hired hand ; but if I was mighty poor, I was working mighty hard, and saving every pinny 1 could earn, so as to be able to buy a boat of my own, and furnish a little cabin on shore, in order to make myself master of the one, and make Esther mistress of the o:her." "And you succeeded, I have no doubt," 1 said. "Hold on,' boss not so fast 1 If I'm tell ing this story, I have to tell it in my own way." I mumbled something about sorrow, and Dave continued ; ' "Old Obadiah Hettrick he was Esther's father was a pretty 'cute chap, for a fish eruian: had a boat of his own, a snug farm, besides a comfortable sum in the bank. Lor bless you ! I never dreamed of ownin' as much as old Obey did ; but I tell you, sir, time makes a great many changes,." Dave, as he said th'S glanced complacent ly round the room. "Now, Obadiah was not a bad sort of a fellow; one of the easy going sort of folks, you know ; but his wife, Abigail, she was a stinger!" "Ruled the roost, eh ?' Dave gave mc a wink that expressed vol umes, and resumed : "Sho was down on mc, sho was; could never abide me near the house, and I do verily believe she thought me one of the wickedest chaps in all Ocean county. But I didn't mind that much, for Esther had told me, over and over again, that she loved me, and the old man, Obadiah, had said, '"Veil, Dave, when you've got a boat of "your own, and want to take my gal, I shall say nary a word against it." " . "Then all things, so far, were satisfac tory?" "Yes, so far. But there was one thing that was anything but satisfactory, and that was in the shape of Abner Sandford. Not that Abner was. a bad sort of a fellow : for 1 half believed then, and know now, that he was a good, strong, generous hearted fel low, and as brave as steel. But what I didn't like, was his visiting the house of old Obadiah. and always being made wel come by Esther's t mother, while I was scowled at if I came within forty rod of the gate." "Ah !" I said, filling another pipe ; "a slight twinge of jealousy, I perceive?" "Well," replied Dave, with a comical grin, "I guess that's what you may call it. And, such being the case, it is not to be wondered at that Esther and myself had many a spat about this Abner. I well re member the time when we had quite a se vere quarrel that is, for sweethearts about this self-same Abner. It was on Squan Beach ; I was sitting on a boat, mending a net, when Esther came along, looking just as Fpick and span as a newly painted schoon er ; and I thought I never saw her looking prettier in all my life. But, somehow or other, there's a something in the menditlg of nets that makes a man think, and I had been brooding over Abner, till I was gloomy and savage as a uieat axe. 'Dear Dave,' Esther said, 'I am so glad to see you! I've been to Martha Swain's with some egsjs you know, she is so sick ; so I thought I would come round this way home, and sec you.' " "Which, of course, brightened and clear ed you immediate y?" "I kind o' think it did a litt'e ; but then you see, when a man is determined not to be pleased, it is pretty hard to please him. I auswered gruffly that Martha Swain was nothing to mo and maybe if she wasn't a sort o' relation of Abner Sanfor J's, she wouldn't bo thought so much of. I knew it was a lie when I said it, and Esther col ored upalLtle; but I went on, getting more and more excited as I continued, till I finally told her she thought mire of Abner than she did of me." "All true lovers are fools," I said, sen tentiously. Having never boon in love my self, of course 1 was well qualified to judge. "I guess you are a boot right there, sir. When I said Abuer was thought more of than me, she gave me Mich a look, and went off proud as auy queen ; not that I have ever seen a queen, but you know what I luoan. "' 1 nodded assent. '"Of course we made it up again, and went on loving one another, more, if possi ble than ever before. Between you and me,' and here Dave lowered his voice to an im pressible whisper, "this falling out and ma king up'again is one of the chief pleasures of love making." "There's no accounting for tastes," re marked I. "Well, to mnke a long story short, I at last saved money enough to buy a boat, and became owner of the Sparkling Foam ; and what was more, everything having been Bel lied, I was to be' married to Esther in two months from that time." "So the old lady, Mrs. Hettrick, bad come round ?" "Not much. She saw that things couldn't bo helped, so she kind o' put the best face on the matter, more especially as Esther generally had her own way in the long ron ; but you had better believe there was no love lost between us. And it's my private opinion ia fact, I know it to have been so now she led Obadiah a deuce of a life, for ever having given me a kind'y word of encouragement or advice." "But that didn't trouble you much !" "I don't know about that. You see, I am a sort o' straight up and-down fellow, I am, and when I don't like anybody, I must show it. I tried hard to be civil and polite to the old woman, but juU a streak o' ugli ness would show itself now and then. Esther often spoke to me about it, and beg ged me to be kinder to her mother, remind ing me that it was her mother I was cross to, and that a cruel word hurt her more than it did her mother." "And j our promise was never withheld," I remarked.. "Right you are, my boy. Just about this time I had to run up to York with a cargo, so, bidding good bye to Esther, and promising to return in a few days, 'I sailed, and I sailed,' as the song says. You know the old saying about men undertaking to do a thing, and God putting a stop to it ; well it was so in mv case. When I got to York, and had unloaded, I got a chance to run up to Newburg with another cargo. Money being what I wanted, and this giving me the opportunity of making some, 1 accept ed it. I lost no time, you can bet your bot tom dollar on that ; but by the time I had returned to York with a load of bricks, this time it was quite four weeks before I again entered the Manasquan Inlet." "And during this time your true love was wandering by the sad sea waves all alone." Dave paid no attention to my remark, but continued : i ' "As soon as I fixed my boat all snug, and had anchored her securely, I made my way as quickly as possible to Esther's house, in tending to tell her of the good fortune I had had since I had been away, and bexhappy over it together. As I walked up the road, I saw Esther standing at the gate, and my heart gave a great bound of delight; but what struck me as strange for I knew she saw me she made no . movement to come asd meet me. Approaching rearer, I saw she was dressed in black, and being startled, I exclaimed: " 'Why, Esther, darling, vrhat is the matter?" " 'So, Dave Pearson, you have come at last !' was all the answer she gave me. "'Come at last 1' I said; "and why shouldn't I come? What is the meaning of that black dress?' "I soon understood it. Darin? my ab sence her mother had died, and she thought I had kept away from the funcrtl on ac count of my dislike for her. " 'If you,' said Esther, her eyes flashing, 'had uo respect for my poor mother, you might have bhown some for me. "It was no use my telling her I had heard not a word about it. At this I got mad, like a great fool; for my experience tells me it is never any good arguing with a wo man. When two people are mad and quar reling, you know, they don't say exactly what they thick. I suppose I said many things I ought not to have done, when, all of a sudden, Esther clenched her fist, aud brought it down violently upon the gate post for though she favored her fathcr.she still had a spice of her mother in her and said : " 'I tell you, Dave Pearson, you shall never call me wire!" "With this she turned round, and walked up the garden path toward the house. My heart relented ; I opened the gate, and followed, calling upon her to hear me ex plain. She paid not the !eat attention, en I tered the door, gave me a look, that I don't like to think of even now, and she slammed it in my face." j Dave refreshed himself with a glass of j apple-jack, and continued : "Well, that got my dander up, so I jest turned round an 1 walked away, vowing ven geance against all womankind, and Esther in particular. I swore in my rage, that I would never go near her house again, and that I would kill Abner Sanford the first opportunity, for somehow or other, I laid all the blame on him, and hugged in the belief to my heart that he had been puis-1 onijg Esther's mind against me." "Which was a very sensible thing to d," said 1, knockiug the ashes out of my pipe, ; and refilling it. "I neglected my work, and I didn't care a darn whether school kept or not, and kept on drinking more thaa was good for mc. The Sparkling Foam lay idle at her moor- ings, and both me and my belongings were going to rust and decay. I tried to pick a fuss with Abner ; but he told me plainly that he was sorry for mc, aud would not quarrel with a man in misfortune." ( "A. tungnauiuiuus feltuw t " 1 exclaimed. "There came a Sunday, I remeiuber one of those cold, leaden kind of days, you of ten see at the commencement of winter, when everything looks dull and grey, and objects, both ou ocean and shore, oppress you with a sense of great desolation. Such a day, I need not tell you, did not make me feel particularly cheerful, so, to pluck up my spirits and drowu care, I flew to that which, like fire, is a very good servant, but a bad master." Dave gave the bottle a little fillip with his thumb and forefinger, and resumed : "As I was wandering about the- village, nursing my wrath and hatred against all mankind, who should I see but Esther re turning from , church, with Abucr walking by her side ! That was enough. A feeling that has long been slumbering in my breast awoke with renewed energy, and my whole nature was filled with hate, revenge and murder. I resolved to waylay Abuer on his return, and kill him. "Why, Dave," said I, "I had no idea you were such a desperate fellow." "I vatched them enter the house, and then went to the back, where I knew old Obadiah kept his nets, and, picking up the handle of a broken oar, went down the roai and waited. It was getting night now, and the snow that had been threatening for some time began falling very fast. The wind had also risen, and it was blowing a perfect hur ricane. The drifting and - blinding snow prevented mv seeing the sea, but I knew how angrj it was, for I heard it Ireakin aud roaring on the beach with a fury that threatened to swallow up the land. Though I had murder in my heart, I pitied the poor fellows olf the coast, and wished they had plenty of sea-room, as the wind was blow ing dead on shore." Dave paused a moment, gave a sigh of contrition, and then went on with his story. "115 w loug I waited for Abner, I don't know I had a sense of being bitter cold, but if it had been ten times colder, my hate would have kept me there till morning when all of a sudden, I beard, nigh ou shore, the boom of a cannon. I knew what that meant some vessel in distress and it was fol lowed by another and another in rapid suc cession. In a moment Abner was forgotten, and my only idea was to hurry to the beach, and jive what aid I could to the vessel, which, if not already on shore, would soon be driven there by the wild, tempestuous wind. "When I arrived on the beach, I found many there before me, all intent upon the same errand as myself tor you must know none of us lose much time in hastening to a ship's cry of distress. We had no life boat dowu on this part of the coast then, and even if we had, it wouldn't have been of much use. I have seen many a rough sea, but that beat all I have ever seen. As the waves rolled on the shore, they scooped deep hollows in the sand, and went tearing and tumbling back with a maddened fury that was terrible. "Old fishermen men who had never been a day away from the sea in all their lives shook their heads, and said that nolhing could be done, the ship must be left to the mercy of Providence. All this time, Done had seen the vessel, for the falling snow prevented objects fifty yards distance being seen, yet the staady and incessant firing of the cannon heard above the roaring of the tempest told us of her deep and dire dis tress. . "Women were wringing their bauds and begging, against their own judgment (for they knew as well as any, diow foolhardy would be such an undertaking) the men, for the sake of the mothers, sisters and wives of those on board, to try and save them. "At last they sent up a rocket, and an other, and finally they lit a signal-light, and by its glare we saw her. "There she lay, not a biscuit's throw from the shore, beam ends on, and the sea ma king a clean breach over her. J ust at that very moment, I heard an imploring voice, close by my side, say, 'Abner, Abner, pray do try and save them !' "I turned quickly, and there stood Esther aud Abner. j "I didn't speak a word, and I don't know what possessed me, but feeling came over me that I'd have to reach that ship or die. There were plenty of lines at hand,' so, ta king one, and coiling it upon the beach, I commenced to fasten it around my waist. When it became known that I bad made up my mind to go off, very one tried to dis suade me from it, but it was of no use. I don't believe there was anv nower on p.irtli pthat could have prevented me from tryintr. 'It's sure death,' said one ; but I didn't care; he would have had to use a stronger argu ment than that to deter me then. "When all was in readiness, and with a lighter line attached to my writU I walked toward the sea, and waited for a good op portunity in a returning wave to make the plunge. Tho opportunity soon came, but at that instant Esther sprang forward, threw her arms around mv neck, and entreated me, in the name of the love I used to bear her, not to go. "That maddened me I don't know why, but it did and I strove roughly to unclasp bcr hands from about my neck. She only clung the tighter, and, amid her tears and sobs, called me her 'dear, dear Dave,' and told me that she loved mc dearly. " 'Love 1' I said, bitterly. 'Keep your love for those that want it such as Abner Sanford, there.'. .. ... :vl.-,-eT "At these words, she loosed her arms. turned on me a look of reproach, and fell fainting on the sands. I gave one glance at her, and then I was tattling with ths s" . . . ell, 1 don t know much about it, Lut, anyhow, tho poor fellows were saved tho' terribly frost bitten and they do say that was the man that did it. However, what I know is, that when I came to kuow any thing, I was- lying in bed, terribly stiff and sore, with a big gash upon my forehead, caused by being thrown violently against the wreck. "It was some days before I was able to leave my bed, and when I did, an aroi-chaii was rigged up withjillows, to make me easy and comfortable ; for, I assure you, I was just as sore all over as it's possible for a man to be, and I could make no movement without assistance. "The second day I was up, 1 heard some body enter the room ; but I paid no atten tion, as I thought it was old Martha Swain, who had come to nurse .me, when it was found I was hurt, and had been with me ever siuce, when I heard a voice say, 'Dave Pearson will you speak to mc?' "My heart gave a great jump, for I knew it was Esther, and my joy was great, but my foolish pride would not permit me to own it ; so I growled out, like a great sav age brute that I was, 'What do you want?' "She came and stood in front of me ; I never saw a woman so changed in all my life ; she was pale and careworn, aud her eyes were red as if from crying. My whole soul yearned toward her, but my brutal ob stinacy hept me silent, and I looked dogged ly at her. ' 'Oh, Dave,' she sail, 'do, do forgive me! You are good, kin J, generous, brave, and I am but a poor, weak woman. You little know how I love you, and how sore it has made my heart to be bad friends with you. I was wrong, Dave, dear Dave ! For give mc ! Take me to your great loving heart, and let me be to you as I once wa3.' "I hardly know what I said in reply, but I mumbled out something about Abner Sanford, and she had better go to him for comfort. "At these wards she gave a little cry of pain, clasped her hands in anguish, and said, 'Dave Pearson, you don't know what you are doing ; you are breaking my heart.' "She then turned toward the door, and I heard her open it. I could stand it no Ion ger ; I tried to follow her ; but, Lor' bless you ! I couldn't f-tir, and, like a great baby. I commenced to cry weakness made me do that, I suppose and blubbered out the word 'Esther !' ''In another instant she was in my arms, and covering me with kisses. Hush ! here she comes ; not a word to her, as she don't like to have it spoken about." At this juncture, Esther, with her bright. pleasant face, entered the room, and said. "Come, Dave, if you have to catch the first tide in the morning, it is time you and the gentleman weie in bed, for it is near ten o'clock." - .... A TOCNO lady recently married to a farm er, one day visited the cow houses, when she thus interrogated her milk maid : "By the by, Mary, which of these cows ia it that gives tho butter milk?" Don't Tell It. Your neighbor's name, Or your friend's fair fame, Aid what befell it, In deed or word, You may have heard, Yet pray don't tell it ! If kept within, This rumored sin. May prove a bubble ; Told again -Like the thriving grain. 'Twill soon grow double. Instead of peace, If strife increase. Then try and quell it ; Think what you will. Of good or ill, But pray don't tell it. Vanished Years. Who can look back upon the -vanished years without a sigh of regret for the many beautiful remembered joys that the years now vanished brought to us, but can never return to us again? To one, it is the memory of a child's ca ressing fingers, straying over the face and hands. Of clinging arms about the neck, and the pattering of tiny slippered feet over the stair or down the hall. It is the music of a sweet innocent voice, floating in rip pling laughter, or precious baby words from the past along the vanished years into the tide of the present. To another, sweet, loved faces float sud denly from the mist of the vanished years, as if the daisies grew not between the closed eyes aud our own, they meet us again with the same never forgotten glance of tender ness and we ask of the vanished years, if they have given back to us cur own, or whether the spirits of the air take form, sometimes, only to vanish again, leaving us only our memories. Half lorgotten songs float dreamily back (o us, and the memory of a woman's smile, or a manly voice, has thrilled many a heart with an intensity of emotion, that only a presence from the van ished years could bring. Youth, beauty, love, and happiness, all belong to the beautiful vanished years, and looking forward brings not the sati-faction that we find in silent, sweet communion with the past. The joys, the happiness that ha been ours, is ours still, for faithful memory is ever going backward to the vanished years, I aud bringing to us our treasures that have been. But in looking forward, we see only what may be, and past experience tells us that hones fail. Perhaps there is nothing in the past of a person who has reacted the quiet middle years of life, that so brings mingled sadness and smiles, as the recollections of youth's first love. How real it all seems then ; and yet how the vision changed. The girl that seemed an angel then, is only an ordinary mortal now, faded and world-weary, like the boy who thought himself a man, and claimed the manly right of worshipping every angel in maid enly guise. And from among the relics of the depart-, ed years is drawn the curl of shining hair that was such a tailstnan then. It is just as bright, just as golden now, and it coil itself about your fingers just as prettily, reminding us in its almost ani mated curling of the coquettish grace of its wearer. But, alas '. the years in vanishing have stolen from its tailsinanic powers, and to day it is only a lock of woman's hair, shorn be fore the silver threads began to linger in sai?, silent token of the cares and weariness of the earth-life. And a thought of silver hairs brings us back to the present, and glancine in the mirror we find .them plentifully bestowed upon ourselves, and smile as we wonder if the girl to whom that curl belonged has kept that shiniug lock of bright, chestnut hair we gave her in exchange. Only the vanished years can tell. Do they tell us of a broken vow that made two lives a failure? Why then did not that golden hair rest forever in happy security against the breast whereon it leaned when a lover's hand sev ered the shining curl? Ah! we gather only the beautiful memo ries from the vanished years! Our treach eries, and deceitiulness we consign to the past, and say "let the dead past bury its dead," and clasp more closely the sweet cherished memories that were so exquisitive in the reality. How sacredly we treasure them ! How we linger with them ! But lingering with the vanished years brings us to silent, grass grown graves, and mossy tombstones, and thence to tears. So we fuld away the treasured memories, and know that though the straying baby fingers may nevermore stray over our faces and hands, and hair nor the tiny feet make music over the stairs, and down the hall nor white-haired age grow young again nor broken vaw be renewed nor anything be longing to the vanished years return to us, we are hastening on to them. Earthlife is only a shadow r,f the substance that the second life affords. Eternity is before us, and we shall say that in the eternal years all shall not be re .stored to us.
