Vol. 11. [For the CASKET, i IN MEMORIAMWhat direful gloom does reign around! All peace and joy seems sadly o’er; The world looks drear from sky to ground As never I saw it before. The sun in sadness seems to shine, And sadly, too. the winds do moan; But sadder still this heart of mine. Its joys, its hopes are all undone. For that fair one who charmed it most, Alas ! I ne’ermore here shall see: For to earth’s sight she now is lost, She’s sleeping ’neath a willow tree. The brightness of that eye is gone. That smile has vanished from our view, And to a fairer realm has flown The sweetest life I ever knew. She lived as lives that damask flower Which yields a sweet and rose perfume, But shows its beauty just an hour. And dies while in its fullest bloom. Naught cheers me now,my heart is crushed Birds sing in vain their songs of glee; For since her gentle voice is hushed No music hath this world for me. Still do I pray, when life is o’er, This pure, fair saint, now in the sky, To meet agai...

2 The Casket Cora A. Cobb, Willie M, Briggs, .........Editors THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS. Dicar Misses Editors : 1 will make a faint attempt to give you a description of the way I spent my Christmas holidays. For a week before Christmas the school girls were busy talking of going home, and how they would spend their holidays, while the smaller children were on “tip-toe of expectation” in regard to what old Santa Claus would bring them ; and when Christmas eve ar rived, many little hearts were beat ing with joy. There was a little girl who came to me and asked, “Why are Christmas eve days longer than others.” Several girls remained at the school during Christmas, and I, being one of the number, can assure you we spent a very pleasant Christ mas. We arose very early Christmas morning, and after breakfast the Christmas tree was lighted, and the children came rushing in ; the eyes of- every child was sparkling with pleasure, but just as they were admiring the tree, the back door slam med, a...

The Casket LOCAL MATTERS PERSONALS. Miss Georgie Pope attended the marriage of her eldest sister during her Christmas holidays Miss Lillie Holland waited on and danced at her mother’s wedding Christmas. Said she had a splendid time. Miss Adelaide Howard says Willie Briggs did not dance while at home. Expect they made a bargain not to tell on each other. Miss Hattie Crittenden spent the Christmas in Gates, having accompanied Miss Ida Lassiter, who went home to be present at the marriage of her sister Miss Hattie Pendleton went home last week to see her sister married. Well, that is right, for all the older sisters to get out of the way before we get on the carpet. All the students welcomed with pleasure the arrival of our little friend Annie West, who returned to school last Wednesday. Her little dog “Van” seemed particularly delighted. Miss Anna Whitley paid a visit to her teachers and old schoolmates last week, but was so busy all the time looking for white tarltan, while kids, flo...

4 [For the Casket. A HOME-MADE POEM. I consider, Misses Editors, you are my friend, And hope you’ll be faithful to the end; And now you are absent, at this time, Accept this verse as a token of mine. Poetry is sometimes very funny, And you are aware that it costs money; But for tiiis I am well paid, Because it is pure, genuine home-made. Well, now, Misses, Editors, don't bemad. And when you read this don’t be sad, For it ought to be pleasant at any time, For you to get a piece of my mind. Now, when you find a lonely day, Bead this to pass the time away; For 1 am confident you ought to know That home-made poetry is all the go, [For the CASKET. SOME DAYS MUST BE DARK AND DREARY. There are no sunny days that are not followed by dreary ones. Even school girls have their bright and dark days; but it is well for us, for we would not know bow to appreciate sunny days if there were not some dreary ones. When we are in the midst of enjoyment we should not think of the dreary days that may fo...

* ® K Vol. IT. [Selected. MARCH. The stormy March has come at last, With wind and cloud, and changing skies; I hear the rushing of the blast That through the stormy valley flies. Ah ! passing tew are those who speak, Wild, stormy month, in praise of me; Yet, though my winds are loud and bleak, I am a welcome month to thee. For I to Northern lands again The glad and glorious Spring do bring; And I have joined the gentle train, And bear the gentle name of Spring. I bring the hope of those calm skies, And that bright time of buds and flowers. When the wide bloom on earth that lies Tells of a brighter world than ours. THE POET OF THE AGE. Images gathered from the four winds, from every science, physical and menial, are flung down as lavishly as sunbeams at the opening of mom, as flre-hued leaves when Au* tumn sweeps across the trees. There is no hoarding of wealth, no dexterous arrangements of similes to the best advantage; bit every turn reminds us of the lavish pomp and princely splen...

4 Hit guilt!*. SUFFOLK, VA., FEBRUARY, 1878. [For the Casket. FLOWERS. How dreary and desolate would this world be were it destitute of those lovely charms that decorate the groves and meadows, and help to adorn the beautiful sceneries that surround us. They not only animate humanity, but seem to enliven the smallest insect. Just observe the little bee as it flies along, culling the sweets, day after day'; and, too, the little humming bird seems to enjoy their presence as it flits along from bush to tree, humming its tone of monotony, as if in praise to Him who presented them. How delightful it is to walk out on a Spring morning and behold the flowerets as they stand motionless yet gracefully on their quiet circles, heavily laden with dew, bending their lovely heads as if in reverence to the One that made them, each one wearing a look of love and innocence, as if presenting different emblems to Him above. The beautiful little Daisy, of the meadows and fields, seems to bear a look of...

Published by the Victoria Literary Society, of the Suffolk Female Institute Vol. UK THE BUILDERS. HY H. W. LONGFELLOW. All are architects of fate, Working in these walls of time; Some with massive deeds and great, Some with ornaments of rhyme. Nothing useless is, or low, Each thing in its place is best; And what seems but idle show Strengthens and sustains the rest. For the structure that.we raise Time is with materials filled; Our to-days and yesterdays Are the blocks with which we build. Truly shape and fashion these, Leave no yawning gap between ; Think not because no man sees, Such things will remain unseen. —Extract from “ The Builders. AFTER THE CLOUDS, SUNSHINE. BY “PEARL.” [A LEAF FROM MV SCRAP-BOOK.] “ Ask me no more, Herbert, for I never can.” “Oh !

Ijfc* Suffolk, Va., October, 1879. LOCAL MATTERS. One of the new girls says she doesn’t like to practice by the clocks here—they go too sloiv. Miss Willie Trammell was made glad not long since by a visit from her sister, whom she had not seen for a long time. Miss Mattie Dickerson has visited her home this term. We missed her dry wit, especially at the table. Her brother visited her to-day. Misses Fannie and Mollie Finney received a nice box of grapes last week from the Misses Kello, of Southampton. We helped to enjoy them. We call attention to our advertisements, which we cordially recommend to the consideration of the many readers of the Casket. We insert none but tirst-class. We went to hear a sermon delivered by Rev Mr. Hartwell, a Chinese missionary, several Friday nights ago. He told us a great many of the Chinese customs, which we enjoyed greatly. The young ladies of the Institute heard that a young man up town said he had picked him out a sweetheart, but wouldn’t let her kno...

Institute, June 17, 1879.J What is unwritten poetry? Written poetry is a composition in metrical language, produced or embellished more or less by a creative imagination, the end of which is to afford intellectual pleasure by exciting elevated, agreeable and pathetic emotions. Unwritten poetry is something different from this, and yet it is poetry as pleasing as the written. It is not a composition in metrical language, but it is the poetry of nature, revealed in the numberless objects of beauty and grandeur scattered here and • there over the wide expanse of earth’s domain; it is the poetry of character, wrapped up in feelings which find expression in. noble, patriotic and generous deeds, which afford indescribable emotions of pleasure. It is here that we have the sublime and beautiful unwritten poetry...

And cries, “ Dear one, remember How blithe I came, With heart aflame, Through many a past December. “I lighted up aerial depths, Beyond the sun’s red portal, Where for her dower The soul’s white flower Blooms on in life immortal. “ Since none may pass untouched by pain, Dear one, my gifts remember ; Joy all may take, Shine bright, to make Glad hearts in drear December.” CHRISTMAS.

What joyful meetings take place between sisters and brothers, parents and children, friends and relations, who have been separated during the past year. The rooms are decked with holly, ivy, evergreens and mistletoe. The old yule log blazes brightly on the hearth, and the faces of all are bright and happy.

We gave a hearty welcome to Misses Mary John Pope and Nina Daniel, who have returned to the S. F. I. since our last issue. A young gentleman dining at the Institute not long since, wished to know if the hell would ring for us to commence eating dessert. There is a certain young gentleman in our town who is afraid to hold his head up when he passes by the Institute, for fear we will put him in the Casket.

Suffolk, Va., December, 1879. UNWRITTEN POETRY: —OB— The Beautiful and Sublime in Nature and Character. BY MAGGIE B. WILLIAMS. [Read at the Celebration of the Y. L. Society, of S. F. Institute, June 17, 1879.] Up yonder on that eminence, beyond the hum of a noisy world, the enraptured eye may view for a moment the thousand beautiful objects of Nature, the source of Unwritten Poetry, dotted gem-like o’er the face of the earth. What a magnificent vista is here before us ! In the dim distance tower the cloud-capped, hoary old mountains, even to the very blue sky, with their l .fty peaks gleaming with snowflakes in the light of the sun beyond the clouds. It is winter time, and even the cold, rock-ribbed earth holds fast in its icy embrace the grandest of scenes, the sublimest of poetry—the unwritten. The season is changed, and golden Spring, leaping forth in resurrection from a long sleep, submits to our view the smiling valley in its robe of rich verdure and flowers, with its merry, la...
