The Midnight Ride.
BY WILT JAM LEIGHTON*. Look down, fair Moon! thou art our queen, Bright robed in light, and crowned with sheen! They say vour beams are coldly bright; That gleams no kindness in your light; But O, for me, what joy I see, In thy fair face, O queen of night 1 My gallant steed ! how brave we go, So swiftly on the frozen snow ; A gleaming track before I see, The icy path on which we flee ; Away ! away ! like glancing rays ; The night, the night, for you and me— The fields are white : the trees are bare ; There’s coldness in the midnight air; There’s none abroad upon the world. There's none abroad but night and cold, And thou and I, as swift we fly ; Our hearts are warm, our spirits bold. At dread midnight, on German plain, The peasant secs a 'pectre train : And trembles at the fearful sight, As sweeps along the goblin (light; As swift as they we speed away— We are the genii of the night. Romantic Story of the Olden Time.— Rebecca Rawson was the sixth daughter and ninth child of Edward Rawson, ‘the fa mous secretary,’ who traced his descent from Sir Edward Rawson, ‘a doughty knight of ancient memory.’ She was born in Bos ton, May 23, 1656, and her life affords ma terial for as romantic a tale as ever adorned the pages of fiction. She was nursed in the lap of luxury, and was pronounced to be one of the most beautiful and accomplished young ladies in New England. ‘Beautiful and vain,’ she considered herself ‘suitable to wed a lord.’ An impudent knave from England, by the name of Ramsey, possessed of a pleas ing person and attractive address, passed himself off as Sir Thomas Hale, jr., nephew to the Lord Chief .Justice of that name, and, as such, paid court to the fair Rebecca, gained her consent, nnd, ‘in the presence of forty witnesses,’ they were solemnly united ‘for better nud for worse,’ by a minister of the gospel, on the 1st of July, 1610. te 'i a L furnished.’ ninl im o-1 tcij sailed for England with her boxes and bundles, and her lord—her vain bosom swelling with pictures of the gay and giddy life she was to lead at court. In due time she safely arrived, and went on shore in dish abille, leaving her trunks and packages to be sent after her. Early the next morning, her ‘lord’ took the keys, and told her he would send up the trunks in season for her to dress for dinner. In due time the trunks came, but with them no key and no husband. After waiting until a late hour, with the greatest impatience, she had the trunks opened by force, and lo! not an article of any value was left in them! He had de camped, stripping her of everything but the dishabille in which she was attired. In in expressible astonishment, she ordered a car riage, and drove to the place where she had spent the night before with her husband, and inquired for Sir Thomas Ilale. She was informed that he had not been there for some days. She was sure that he was there the night before. In reply, she was told that one Thomas Ramsey was there the night be fore, with a young lady, but that he had gone off that morning to Canterbury to sec his wife! The news fell on her ear like a thunderbolt, crushing her hopes, heart, and pride. She never saw him again. Alone —abandoned—betrayed—rui.ied—expect ing soon to become a mother, with no funds, and too much pride to appeal to her friends, she sought an humble abode, and with the aid of her needle and pencil, for thirteen long years supported herself and child in a genteel manner. Yearning at length to see her friends she left her child in care of a sis ter, who had come to England to reside, and embarked for Boston, by way of Jamaica. While at the latter port, her vessel was swallowed up by an earthquake, and thus tragically ended her eventful and melancholy life. Printing is a glorious art. It is the sun of the moral world. What would have been our condition without books or newspapers? The Almighty was a printer from the be ginning. Look up at night at the blazing editorials in the huge sheet spread over the skies. You may read and read again, and still learn uew thoughts and brilliant ideas. Burning stars arc types which have been read and instructed all people and kindred from the birth of existence to the present hour. The earth, too, is printed all over. Can not we read the language of the mountains, the oceans, trees and beautiful flowers?— The pen of the Almighty is traced on them. Is not printing a glorious art? What art can boast of a greater antiquity? Who wouldn’t be a printer or an editor, and a working man with God in interesting, ele vating and regenerating the human family? Yes, friend, it is a beautiful, antique and glorious conse, one which none should be ashamed to enlist; one which should be en couraged, sustained and reverenced by all. It is a cause in which some of our greatest and most talented forefathers and patriots have labored. They, through the instru mentality of this great and noble art, the preservative of all arts, have been enabled to hand down to us truces of the bold, un tiring and successful efforts to free us from the bonds of tyranny, and serve us as bea eons to allure us on to any greater and no bler deeds. Don’t Worry.— This is the first thing an editor should get by heart. If Mr. Slocum threatens to withdraw his patronage because you criticised Professor Drawl’s lecture on the onion question, don’t worry—but tell him to go ahead and do it. If Mr. Bullion writes you an insulting let ter saying that if you don’t stop writing about the Diddleton Railroad, he will ruin you with a lawsuit—don’t worry, but dare bin) to try it on. If Mr. Smith threatens to ‘cave your head in,’ because you mentioned that his son Bob was sent to the Tombs for pelting a street lamp with brickbats—don’t worry, but tell him that you so love the law, you dine on a salad of red tape and sealing wax. Again, we suy, never worry. If you do, you are no more calculated for au editor tlian a Quaker is for marine hornpipes. Economy in Beating Carpets. —When you purchase your Carpets, take care to buy one that is infinitely superior to all the rest; for such a carpet will beat every other car pet you have in the house. To a Correspondent — Common Advice If yon have a ricli aunt, don't talk to her about billiards and brandy and water If you intend to do a thing, don t change your mind; and if you possess a ten pound note, don’t change that. If you happen to say something in society which causes a pain ful sensation, you had better go out for a five mioutes’ walk. If you don’t know what everybody else knows, you had better hold your tongue; and if you know something that everybody else knows, you had better hold your tongue too. Should you be talking to a thin lady, of another thin lady, you needn’t describe the party alluded to as a ‘scraggy old maid.’ If you require a person to become security for you don’t ask the man who promised he would do anything for you when he knew that you didn’t want anything done. If you happen to know an author don’t own it; one-half of the world won’t believe you, and the other half won’t think much of it if they do. Don’t say you never take suppers, except ing where you know they never give any. Don’t tell a mother of the faults of her fa vorite child. If you wish to sleep quietly, don’t praise another woman while your wife is undress ing to get into bed.— Comic Times. I Want to see My Mother.— I want to sec my mother, said a little boy the other day, who had opened the window of the car, as it was moving from the station through the town where he lived. A gentleman sit ting near the open window, and finding it too cold, requested the little fellow to close it. The latter quickly answered, ‘yes, sir, presently, I want to see my mother.’ ‘Yes, well,’ said the gentleman, ‘keep up the win. i dow my little nian f if you want to see your mother.’ lly this time we were opposite the house where lived the mother of this, to us now interesting by. lie waived his snow white handkerchief to his mother, who was standing in the door, gazing after her de parting boy, with a look of love and anxie ty, such as a mother alone can give. In a moment more we were out of sight, and the window was closed. It was natural that I i should desire to know something more of this affectionate child. On inquiry I found that he was leaving home for the first time, for college, and that he did not expect to return for many months. On being ques tioned whether he had not bid his mother good-bye before he started, he looked up with some ssrprise, and in a subdued tone, said, ‘yes sir, but I wanted to sec her once more.’ What a sweet little boy that was; he loved his mother—as good boys do—and therefore lie ‘wanted to see her once more.’ Sometimes boys don’t want to sec their mothers. When they have been disobedient, or have been doing something wicked, they do not wish to see them, because they know their mothers will be greatly grieved at them. I once saw a boy, who hail been made drunk by the wicked rumseller; when some of his companions proposed to take him home, lie refused to go, saying, ‘Oh, how can I see my mother; I won’t go home now.’ Good children want to sec their mothers—especially when they get into trouble, or when they get hurt or sick. No one can take the place of a mother. No hand so soft and gentle. No kiss so sincere. Perhaps some one of my young readers has no mother on earth, and much as lie de sires to see her he cannot. Oh, if lie could only see her once more, and hear her speak, and sing and pray as she used to do. Ah, my little friend, you are motherless now; she who used to proy with you and for you so often, and who watched over your child hood with so many tears and anxious cares, lies in the cold dark grave now. lie of good cheer, though, my dear little friend; your mother will rise again. Her pure spirit is in heaven, and if you are good and love the Saviour as your mother taught you, you shall see her in heaven. Aud then you’ll never part again. Why am I Not a Christian.—1. Is it because I am afraid of ridicule, aud of what others may say of me ? “Whosoever shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, of him shall the Sou of Man be ashamed.” 2. Is it because of the inconsistencies of professing Christians ? “Every man shall give account of himself to God.” 3. Is it because I am thinking that I will do as well as I can, and that God ought to be satisfied with that ? “Whosoever shall keep the law, and yet offend in oue point, he is guilty of all.” 4. Is it because I am not willing to give up all to Christ ? “What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul ?” 5. Is it because I am afraid I shall not be accepted ? “Him that cometh to me, I will in no wise cast out.” 6. Is it because I fear that I am too great a siuner ? “Ihe blood of Jesus Christ cleauseth from all sin.'” “T. Is it because I am afraid that I shall not “hold out ?” •‘He that hath iegun a good work in you will perform it, tintil the day of Jesus Christ.”— Independent. mm .
