Earth is a vast ccmetry. Myriads of be ,.,gs aro iu her hard rocks. Her sand and clay, aro oft-times naught but tho remains of 'utlo insects each grain of sand, and minute parucio 01 clay, tiio skeleton ol an antcdiluvi an animal. The very dust we breathe, per- chance once moved, and was infused with life. The living has tho capacity to die tne dead to live. Tbe dead has lived tho living must suicly die, and then may liva a gain. Why then this mutteiing at death? this horror at fulfilling Natures great law, w hich makes decay precede the resurrection! it may Do that Heaven implanted lear of dis solution, to make us husband an cxistenco we'd clso cast off too readily but which we must eiuiuro to woik out our fitness for a bet ter being. Hut, be this as it may, we ought not to encourage a dread simply as tho cn ding 01 our being here. Wero it annihila tion, 'twere nothing. If it bo but tho portal 01 new iiio, tis not wiso to shrink from it, in cvitalle but rather faco it, and make our selves familiar with its awful dimness, and pray our (Jod to shed His light upon it, and makc.it our cntranco into joy. Hut carriage wheels grato harshly down a gravciou slope, and seem to circle round me, aud tho scarcely restrained voices of joyous cuuurcn come to my car, O, how rcfreshinz ly! And yet, from my hill-top, nor carriage, nor bounding boys and girls aro visible, so tmck is tho leafy shade so varied arc tho grounds! Hero the living learn to lovo tho dwellings of the dead, frequent their resting places, and read their brief epitaphs, and young children haunt their parcnts'fgraves as a most dear resort, and mark with their little hand the very place they choos to lie in, wucn tliey aro dead, closo nestling by the si-ics 01 tuoso wiio loved them. it is well to bury the dead out of our sight, but it is better to wander among the pleasant tombs, and meditate, and praise, and pray to Him, who is tho Author of death, us well as of all life. No spot hero is too public or too retired for a grave. By tho way-sido stand "houses built with hands," with ni36sivo doors, and bars, and locks, and monuments of various styles; and near tho bottom of that conical cavity, is a newly sodded grave, to reach which tho bearers wound down a spiral path formany rods. Just now, seeing what seem ed tho cntranco of au unfrequented path, choked by tho luxuriant growth of a wild (lowering shrub, 1 put asido with catelcss hand, the winding ffprays, and entered an em bowered rock, and there, without a headstone wa3 a little heap of earth. This, perchance, was the device of some young mother, who'd keep her first-born, though dead, unto her self, and weep o'er its grave in secret. Kve rywhero in this dense wood, amid tho oaks and chesnuts, rise obelisks, and pyranudes, and pillats.'shining in their whiteness, like day-ghosts; and, on every side(vKarth holds up before us tables of monumental marble, like unto those which Moses, with tho shin ing face, fresh from his Maker's presence, bore from Mount Sinai; they bear, not indi vidual epitaphs, but a Cr le-ooon of liuuitn. ity. u ch.-i'tcncu spirit sees mere written, as witti liotl s own linger, upon each and every one of them, not the old command to do no murder, but "Love thy ncghbor as thyself. trail wotm." C. Panther Evans.' nv leo.v. May bo you never heerd how old Evans got tho Panther stuck to his name! Ever since that stampede on the banks of the I'cla llatchcc, he has been called Tanthct Lvans,' and known by no other name." Well, you mast kuow, fust and foremost, that 1 anther Evens is Bone, and no mistikc; drinks moro whiskey, blows olf louder, and is considerably queerer than any other ar langemcnt about Lila llatchcc dizainns. He sets over his think, without siying a word, till he begins to sco varmints; he then always gets up, moves to the door ol the doggery, looks out and around kuowingly, and then blows after this fashion: 'Whew ! wli-c-w ! moccasin tracks! In- gens about, boys!' After this lusting of the safety-valve, he goes back again just as quietly as he came out, and takes a 'big drink,' which generally docs his bizzness. liut 1 sposo you want to know how he won the panther (loin's; hold on a shake then, till I dampen down, and I'll give it to you. Wall, you see old ravens went out one lay turkey hunting on the I'ela llatchcc; he Ion t know any other place than that stamp ing ground. At the timo I'm talking about ho was some younger than ho is know by a good deal. He went out a tuikcy huntiu' as 1 toll you got into a good spot for game- was ftooping down and using his turkey- call,' when all of a sudden, a big panther, without the least notico of such au intent, came down upon his head, tearing olf sun dry scalp locks of hair, and disposed to do other aiHClncf. J.. vans jumped up awful quick, I tell ycr, skecred to death, and wol fish, too; hid his hack up immediately tho' ind was full of fight. He looked at the pan ther, and tho panther looked at him, and they both looked at ono another, and thcro they might have stood to this day, if tho pan ther hadn't concluded it was best to keep shady. Evans hid got down on his hands and knees in his ctforts to reach his rifle, which had fallen to tho crouod, when the panther growled and showed its teeth, but still kept backing out. It is not known how long Evans remained on all fours, but to- warus evening one oi his neighbors, wtio cluiccd to bo pissing that way, found him in tie position I have told you, grinning like a hyena, growling like a)panthcr, and shaking his head awfully. Now, stranger don t think this was the way l'anthcr Evans got his name for it war n't. Ho went homo that night, and in his sleep ho was fighting any number.of panthers till mid night, about which Umesomctlnng look place. There was an opening in his cabin which he used to call a door, and it was shut when the blanket was dropped down on tho inner side. In day tunc or night this constituted the on ly security to Evans' castle. It was about midnight, as 1 was telling you, when Pan ther Evns was roused from his dream of filhtin 1 dc?ncratclv with wild tarmcnts. bv a fierce growling in his cabin. Ho got up at once, and ma Jo out tho intruder to bo the biggest kin g ol'a panther. Ho sot himself at once fot a fight; tins panther growled, and ho growled; helping it out considerably by an oath or two, and at it they went, in tho dark, ncssoftho cabin, the varmint fizhlini for fool, an I Evans becatis ho was savage at the idea of such a cussed intrusiou o sav.i c, iiib'e J. tint ! f.r it !i'h ArJntmw too'k- pick, and went Into it fistculT fashion givin the pur.thcr a decided advantage, sccini how it was armed, lor such insects alwav carry their teeth and paws with them, ready fn , UMI i .1 ... v. mv. , uii, ma iiautiiiT urew mo iirsi blood, but Evaus cotched him as he did it, and lil'wln hi. ! .1.- ... .
