Mary, farewell, thy weary days of suffering o'er, And thou hast found sweet peace at last, where pain is felt no more : I cannot make myself believe thy spirit s fled. I look upon thy vacant place, but I think not thou art dead— 0 why, relentless monster, 0,why conld'st thou not find, Among the ag'd, a victim, and .leave the young behind. Their feet just press the roses, and the thorns they have not found, Which, to the care-worn traveler, lie scattered all around : And she who wa3 our favorite one, our dearest hope and pride, We would have wrested from thy grasp and turn'd the shaft aside ; But, oh ! the fatal arrow had pierced deep within her breast , And could not be extracted but by thy power, O death! 'Tis ever thus, 'tis ever thus, the brightest flowers first fade, And those oft times we love the most, in earth are soonest laid. We rear oar altars and place an idol on the throne, That God himself should occupy, yea, only God alone. He, iu His wi; calls them home—we, iu sub O God. ki.._ Then rest thee, loveu at ti. _e fully and still. 'Twas hard, oh ! hard, to give thee up, but thy Father's will ; And while our natures rebel, we o wn the chasten ing rod ; And pray for you, that we may say, thy will be none, O ttod. O. W. li. Buena Vista, January 15th, 1864. The History of Life.— IIow truly dopR the journey ol a single d »y, its changes and its hours, exhibit the history of human life! \Y e rise up in the glorious freshness of spring qjorning. The dews of night, those sweet tears of nature, are hanging front each hough in the refreshing morning. Our hearts are beating with hope, our frames are buoyant with health. \v e see no cloud, we fear no storm, and with our chosen and beloved com panions clustering around us, we commence our journey. Step by step, the scenes become more lovely; hour by hour, our hopes be come brighter A few of our companions have dropped away, but in the multitude re maining, and beauty of the scenery, their lo-s is uni'elt. Suddenly we have entered upon a new country. I he dews cf the morning are exhaled by the fervor of the noonday 'sun ; the friends ttiat started with us are disappear ing. Some rema n, but their looks are cold and estranged ; others have laid down to rest, but new faces are smiling upon us , and new hopes are beckoning us on. Ambition and fame are before us, but youth and affection are behind us. The scene is move glorious and brilliant, but the beauty and freshness ot the morning have faded, and forever. Onward and onward we go ; the horizon of happiness and fame recedes as we advance to it, and shadows begin to lengthen, and the chilly air of evening are usurping the noon day. Still we press onward ; the goal is not yet won, the haven not yet reached. The orb of hope that has cheered us on, is sinking in the west, our limbs begin to grow faint,°our heart to grow sad; we turn our gaze upon the scenes that ws have passed, but the shad ows of the twilight have interposed their veil between us ; we look around for the old and familiar faces, the companions of travel, but we look in vain to find them; we have out stripped them all in the race after pleasure, and the phantom had fled; and caught in a land of strangers, in a sterile and inhospitable country, the night-time overtakes us; the dark and terrible night-time of death ; and weary and heavy laden, we lie down to rest in the bed of the grave! Happy, thrice hap py, is he who has laid up treasures for him self, for the distant and unknown to-morrow. —[Knickerbocker. See What Came of Swearing.— Mr. Davis stubbed his toe and said d—n it.
