Dancing fleet and light, j Through the doorway, o'er the threshold, Beaming clear and bright. As soft music falls her footstep , r On our list'ning ear.— , Like the notes of strains immortal, That in dreams we heax! Have you heard the silvery ripple | Of the woodland stream ? ' Thus her laughter, free, but charming, Soothes our life's sad dream ! I Like the starlight on the river, Smiling through the night, Is the radiance of her features, Beautiful and bright! ( Like a queen, she wields a sceptre Over all our hearts, But we yield no blind allegiance.— Love its power imparts. Sorrow leaves its throne in silence, When her wand appears, Doubts and grief are also dying, Gone are all our fears. As the darkness yields to daylight.— Ocean to the shore.— So we yield our darling sister, Our hearts evermore! Pure and guileless as a flow ret From the hand of love, May we guard the bud so precious, = f ill it blooms above ! THE PAR>I.MO\IOIS CLERK. "Dimes and dollars, dollars and dimes— An empty pocket is the worst of crimes."' ••Weston," said slr. Dayton to one of bis clerks, as they were alone in the spa cious counting-room, which was attached to the large store of which slr. D. was proprietor, 41 give me leave lo say that I do not think your dress sufficiently gen teel to appear as a clerk in a fashionable store." A deep blush suffused the face of the young man, and in spite of his cu- J deavors to repress it, a tear glistened in his tuii, black eyes. "Did I nut kuow that your salary was j sufficient to procure more genteel habili urtuts, I would increase it." "My salary is amply large sir," replied Weston, with u inortiiied air' but with the proud inde-' peudence of feeling of which even pov-< erty had not beeu able to divest him. '•Oblige me then, by changing your! apparel, and presenting a different ap pearuuee in the future. You are wanted i in the store." Weston turned and left his employer, who mutterc-d to himself, as he took up his paper, "how I do de . test these parsimonious ftlluws." slr. j • Dayton was a man of immense wealth, lie was a widower and had but one child, a daughter, who was the pride of his de clining years. She was as good as aD ; angel and as beautiful as she was good. She was simple in her tastes and ap pearance. Such was Laura Dayton when YV eslou slay first became an imitate of her father s house, and what wonder was it that lie soon learned to love her with a deep aDd ardemt affection. Though 1 their tongues never gave utterance te what their hearts felt, yet the language' of their eyes were too plain to be mistak en. 5\ eeton was the very soul of honor, and although he perceived with pleasure that he was uot distasteful to her, still he felt that he must conquer the passion which glowed in his heart. "I must not win her heart," he said to himself; "I aui penniless, aod her father would never consent to our union." Thus he reasoned and thus be manful ly endeavored to sabdue, what be con sidered an ill fated passion. Laura had many suitors and some who were worthy I of her, but she refused all their overtures with decisive yet gentle firmness. Her father wondered at her conduct, but would not strive to alter her inelina ; tions. He was in the decline of lite, and wished to see her happily settled ere he departed this world. It was not long be fore ho surmised that young Weston was the causo of her indifference to others.— The pleasure which she teok in hearing hint praised, the blush which mantled her face when their eyes met, served to convince the old gentleman that they took more than a common interest in each other. He forebere to make any remarks on the subject and was not so displeased at the thought as Weston had imagined he would be. Weston slay had now been three years in his employ. slr. Dayton knew uoth • iDg of his family ; but his strict integrity, 'good morals, and pleasing manners con- j spired to make him esteem him highly. He placed unbounded confidence ia him and was very proud of him. He often wondered at the scantiness of his ward robe ; for although Weston dressed with the most scrupulous regard to neatness, his clothes were almost threadbare, which slr. Dayton thought proceeded from a niggardly disposition, and accordingly he addressed him on the subject as before related, coon after this conversation , Mr. Dayton left home on business. As he was riding through a pretty little vil lage he alighted at the door of a cottage ,anJ requested a drink of water.

The furniture con sisted of nothing more than was actually necessary, was so clean and neat, that it cast an air of comfort all around. A ven erable old man sat by the window, staff in hand. His clothes were whole but so patched that they seemed the counterpart of Joseph's coat of many colors. "This is your father, I presume," said he addressing her. "It is, sir." "He seems quite aged." "He is in his eighty-third year,and has survived all his children but myself." "Have you always resided here ?" "Xo sir; my husband was once wealthy but indorsing ruined him, and we were reduced to this state. He soon after died and two of my children followed him." "Have you any children living?" "One sir, who is my only support. — My own health is so feeble that I cannot do much, and my father being blind and deaf needs a great deal of attention. My son will not tell me how much hi 3 salary is, but I am sure be sends me nearlv all of it." "Then he is Dot at home ?" "Xo sir, he is a clerk in Xew York." "Indeed ! Pray what is his name ?'' "Weston May." "Weston May ! Is it possible. Why he is clerk. I left him in charge of my . store only two weeks ago. Explanations followed, and Mr. Day ten soon left promising to call scaie oth er time. i "Xoble fellow," said he mentally, as he was riding slowly along, aDd ruminat ing upon the call. "Xoble fellow. Ibe lieve he loves my girl, and he may have ; her and part of my money too. Let me fsee," Leie he fell into a thinking mood and by the time he reached home, he formed a plan which he determined to execute. How it terminated we shall see Full of his new plan, he entered the breakfast room where Laura was awaiting Lis appearance. "So Weston is going to England," said ' he carelessly. "Sir I" said Laura, dropping her coffee cup, "going to England ?" "To be sure ; what of it, child ?" "Xothing—only—I —we shall be rath er lonesome," replied she, vainly endeav oring to repress her tears. "Come, come Laura, tell me do you jlove Weston? You never deceived me, doD t do it now." "Xo ; well I—l do love him most sin cerely." "I thought so ! I thought so," replied he, as he left the room. "Weston," said he as he entered his store, "you expect to go into the country shortly, do you ?" "Yes sir, in about fonr weeks." "If it would not be inconvenient, I •wish you would defer it a few weeks jlouger," said Mr. Dayton. "I will sir, with pleasure, if it will oblige you." "It will oblige me greatly for Laura is to be married in about six weeks, and I, wish you to attend the wedding." "Laura married,' said Weston, starting as if shot; "Laura married "To be sure. What ails the bey ?" "Xothing, sir. only it was rather sud , den—unexpected." "It is rather sudden ; but I am an old man and wish to see her have a protectorj before I die. lam glad you can stay to the wedding-" "Indeed, sir, I cannot stay," said Wes ton, forgetting what he had just said. "You cannot! Why, you just now said yon would." "Yes sir ; but my business requires my presence, and I must go." "But you said you would stay with pleasure." "Command me in anything else, sir, but in this I cannot oblige you." "Weston, tell me frankly, do you love my girl ?" "Sir !" Weston seemed like one wak ing frcm a dream. "Do you love my girl ?" "I do, sir." "Will you give me your mother for her?" Mr. Dayton spoke earnestly. "My mother 1 what do you know of her ?" Mr. Dayton repeated the incident al ready related, and in conclusion said : "And now, boy, I have written to your mother and offered myself, and she has accepted ; what have you to say ?" "That 1 am the happiest fellow on earth and proud to call you father,"' re plied the \oung man with a jeyful face. A few weeks after a double wedding took place at Mr. Dayton's maosion, and soon after a sign went up over a certain store, bearing the inscription of "Dayton & Company." Young man, you may learn from this that it is not fine clothes that would win for you the esteem of those around you. A STARTLIXG COAFESSIOX. Mordacai Paine, a sadler, doing busi ness on Xorth Xinth street, was called from his work on Saturday morning by a messenger who brought the melancholy , intelligence that his wife, Barbara, had taken arsenic for the purpose of com mi t ting suicide, and was then at the point of p death. He hastened to her bedside, and found her more in agony of mind than . body. She declared that there was some thing on her mind which she wished to confess to him before her departure, with the hope of obtaining his forgiveness.— Mr. Paine, with great emotion, desired her to go on with her disclosure, adding . that she might assure herself of his for giveness before she had made known her ! offence. . j 'Ah ! Mordacai,' said she, 'you remern ; ber our large white pitcher was broken I some time ago; I preteuded to you that the cat broke it, but that was false, fur I did it myself.' . j 'Oh, my dear,' said Mr. Paine, 'don't . concern yourself about such a trifle. I j had forgotten the pitcher, and it matters . not how it was broke D.' 'There is another matter,' said Mrs. P. ! after some hesitation. 'The silver spoons which I made you believe were 6tolen by the Yankee clock mender, I pawned them to pay the milliner for doing up my pink satin bonnet.' 'Xever mind it, my love,' said Mr. P. , encouragingly. 'I hope heaven will for . give you as freely as 1 do.' After a short pause, Mrs. P. began . again : J 'Your best razor, which you missed last summer, and made so much to do . about, I swapped it away to a peddler, tor a tortoise shell comb.' 'The deuce !—well, well,' said Mr. 3 Paine, reccilecting himself, 'that is all , done DOW, and can Dot be amended. Think j no more of it.' .. j 'I could not leave this world with such ) a thing on my conscience,' replied the fair penitent. }; 'Ho on, go on,' cried Mr. Paine, 'I told , you that I would forgive everything at such a time as this.' [ Mrs. Paine resumed : 'l'ou remember our boarder, Simon . Drrke, who ran up a bill of six weeks, and then ran off in a hurry without pay ; ing a cent. He and I had agreed to elope together ; but he changed his mind at the momeDt and ran away without me.' 'Fire and fury! do you dare to tell me this ?' cried Mordacai in great excitement. 'But as you are dying, I woti't reproac-h you. 11l leave you now to settie the affair with your own conscience.' 'Stay and bear one thing more. The dose I took this morning was iutended for you, I put it in your cap of coffee, but iu my hurry to have the thing done, [ gave you the wrong cup and took the right one myself.' •The devil fly away with you, you jade " roared Mordacai, as be fluDg himself out of the room. In the eDtry he met the apothecary, who had sold Mrs. Paine the fatal powder. This medical man had heard of the commotion at Paine's house, and suspecting the cause of it, he came to administer hope and comfort to the afflicted. 'Don't be alarmed, Mr. Paine,' said he, •the drug 1 sold to your wife was nothing but magnesia. I judged that she wished to destroy herself, and I tricked her in this way to save her iife.' 'You swindling rascal,' shouted Paine, , 'how dare you cheat a customer in that shameful manner, and obtain her money ou false pretences ? Begone !' And with this exclamation he violently ejected the astonished apothecary from his front door. The maD of physic, sus pecting of course that the poor Mordacai was deranged, sent two officers to provide for his safe keeping. His relation of the preceding dialogue, however, soon ob tained his discharge. £5?" A SAT MISTAKE.—A singular in cident occurred at a wedding in Troyj lately. The guests were assembled, and' the carriages were awaiting them at the door, when a sexton drove up with a hearse, which be backed down to the gate, alighted and opened, and stood waiting to reeeive the coffin. lie had mistaken the place, and seeing the carriages, supposed it was the funeral instead of a feast. The l circumstance cast a gloom over the happy bridal gathering.

A professor of universal knowledge had | a prince, who suddenly came in upon the pretender, and put his wisdom to the \ test • | i "So thou knowest all things," said the king; then tell me to-morrow morning P these three things only, or thou sbalt lose I thy head. I First—how many baskets cf earth there are in yonder mountain ? Secondly— "ihow much is the king morth ? And 5 thirdly, what is the king thiuking of at 1 the time. j The professor was distressed beyond measures, and in h's apartrneuts roiled * (Upon the carpet in agoney, for ke knew that he must die OD the morrow. His r servant learned the trouble and offered to appear before the king and take his chaDce of answering the questions. J The next morning the servant, clothed in his master's robes, presented himself to his majesty, who was deceived by his appearance and the king proceeded ; | "Tell me, now, how many baskets of earth are in yonder mountain ?" "That depends upon circumstances. If the baskets are as large as the moan " tain, one will hold it, if half as large, two, ! if quarter, four; and so on." ■ The king had to be satisfied and pro -3 ceeded. v "Xow tell mc hew much the king is aorth?" Well your majesty, the king cf Ileaven and Earth was sold for thirty pieces ol silver, and I conclude you are worth one 1 piece." , This was so witty an escape, that the king laughed snd went on. 0 "Xow once more, tell mo what lam ' thinking ef ?" "You are DOW thinking that you arc talking with the professor, whereas it ii [ only his servant." 1 "Well done," said the kiDg. you shali have your reward, and vour master shah 3 not lose his head." TOUCH XOT MY SISTER'S PICTURE.— The following incident was relutod by a 1 Confederate prisoner to an attendant, whe ;by many acts of kindness Lad won hi? jconfidence:— 3 "I was searching for spoils among the > dead and dying uhon a deserted battle field. when I discovered a small gold locket 3 upon the person of a dying boy, apparent! v , about fifteen years of age. As I en deavored to loose it from his grasp, he " opened his languid eyes and implored me, by all that was good and pure, by the ' memory of my own mother, not to rob r him of his sister's picture. ,'Oh !" said he, "It was her last gift. I promised her. ' when she kisssd my cheek at, parting, that I would always wear it next my heart, in life or death." TheD, as if throwing his whole soul into the plea, he exclaimed: ' Oh 1 touch not my sister's picture -!" As the last words faltered upon his tongue, his voire hushed in death. By the dim light of the stars I hastily scooped a shallow grave, and buried hirn with his sister's picture lying upon his breast." TURN THE HORSR. —A young sprig of a docter once met at a convivial party several larks, who were bent on placing in his hat a very large brick—or, in plain language, make him gloriously drunk— which they accomplished about 10 o'clock at Dight. The poor doctor insisted on going, ar.d the party accompanied hi.n to the stable, to assist him to mount the horse, which they at leDgth did, with his face to the animal's tail. "Hallo," said the doctor, after feeling for the reins, "I am inside out on tnj horse, or face behind, I don't know which —something wroog. anyhow." "So your are," exclaimed one of the wags; just get off, doctor, and we'll put yon on right." "Get off?" hiocupcd the doctor—"no you don't. Just turn the horse rouod, and it will all come right—you must all be very drunk." XOTHING IS HlDDEN. —Xothing in this world is hidden forever.
