POETRY. TRUST. The child leans on its parent’s breast, Leaves there its cares and is ut rest; The bird sits singing by its nest, * And tells aloud Hi< trust in God, and so is blest . ’Neath every cloud, He hath no store, he sows no seed. Vet sings aloud, and doth not need; P.v dowing streams or grassy mead, Ho sings to shame .Men, who forget, in fear of need, A Father’s name. The heart that trusts forever slugs, And feels as light as it had wings; A well of peace within it springs; Come good or ill, Whate’cr to-day, to-morrow brings, It is his will. SELECTED. HER OATH. The 11th of October, 1810, was a wild night, a night of cloud-wrack and pale, intermittent moonlight. The high westerly wind seemed like a demon let loose over sea and land. In cities houses were unroofed and chimney-pots fell with the • sound of thunder. On seas, full of hurry and confusion, ships staggered blindly, with far more chance of going down than of making port. Through forests the wind roared and...

The Spelling. BY X. Y. Z. A- spellings were all the rage, I thought to the spelling I’d go; In spite of the cold, in spite of the mud, And in spite of the rain and the snow. And Oh! such sights ns I saw; I ne’er can forget, no, never, And what 1 heard I’ll remember, If this life should last forever. The chairman (and a Justice, too), Sal up in a little stand, To keep the boys and girls from talking, And rule as a lord of the laud. Two captains he then appointed; And such picking you never did sec— For the best of the spellers to get, So that each should not beaten be. The umpires next to their posts, Each with a book in his hand, To see that all got justice, And the way they bossed it was grand At last they are ready for business, The teacher is led to his place, Mis fiory-red beard streaming, And literature stamped in his face. Silence now reigns supreme, For at least a moment or two, And then the battle begins, With random shots not a few. The first one led off on “pancake,” Anoth...

POETRY. WE MET BUT ONCE. UY ANNIE HINDbE. We met Imt once, and yet how fair Hat h form and feature. Few more rare Had ever met my gaze, and yet Can we that meeting e’er forget? Forget it? Never! while the sun shall rise, Hr with hia parting rays light up the aides. We met I>ut once. Her merry peal Of laughter, which methinks I feel K’en yet, as coursing through my heart It sped—oh,can it e’er depart? I tepart! No, never while I breathe and move. Or, I’ilgrim-like, through life's sad journey rove. We parted once; we had but met To part; nor can I e’er forget The parting which, though now, not then, I knew could ne’er be ours again. ***** The grass, now green beneath the dew of lieu veil, Is waving sadly o’er her early grave; H» r spirit hovers in that peaceful haven Wlnjre all that’s given returns to Him who gave. * * * * * Life is a bubble on the stream of time, A transient dream of happiness and tears; The former, bursting, leave* no trace behind; The latter, broken, cal...

Their (Graves. “ruth” in vindicator. Oh, cover thorn over with flowers to-day, The richest, the sweetest, and rarest and best, The graves of the martyrs who fell in the fray • Departed long since to the land of the blest. Can time In Its flight our affections destroy And blot from existence the blood that they gave; Oh, mothers and fathers, Oh, where Is your boy— It may be he’s hero, then remember hie grave. And weave from the Cyprus your tribute of love, For hero and stranger a boautiftjl orown— Perchance they are watching thoc now from above; Refuse not, refuse not this beautiful crown. For freedom they fought, for freedom they fell, Defending a cause which they thought to be just; So Amaranths bring from the mountain and dell And scatter them over the warriors’ dust. Mrs. Judge C. T. O’Ferrall now owns the Spotswood Hotel, Harrisonburg, having bought it for SB,100. Snow in June.

POETRY\ THE WAYSIDE WELL. He stopped at th»! wayside well, Where the water was cool and deep; There were feathery feme ‘twisl the mossy stones, Ami pray was the old well-sweep He left his carriage alone; Nor could coachman or footman tell Why Hie master stopped in the dusty road To drink at the wayside well, Ho swayed with his gloved hands, The well-sweep creaking and slow, While from seam and scar in the bucket’s side The water plashed back below, He lifted it to the curb, And bent down to the bucket's brim: No furrows of time or care had marked The face that looked back at him. He saw but a farmer’s boy As he stooped o’er the brim to drink, And ruddy and tanned was the laughing face, That met his over the brink. The eyes were sunny and clear, And the brow undiinmed by care. While from under the brim of the old straw hat Strayed curls of chestnut hair. He turned away with a sigh; Nor could coachman or footman tell Why the master stopped In his ride that day To drink at the wayside ...

For the Banneb. Death. HV X. Y. Z. Death! Tis a solemn thing To stand beside the bed Of those we fondly, dearly love, And hear the words “he is dead.” Their bodies are at rest, Free from toil and pain; And what is our grievous loss Is their eternal gain. No more shall sin and sorrow, Vex them here below; But they shall rest ’ncath Jasper walls, Where living waters flow. Yet O how very, very hard To see them thus depart, To take that feble hand in ours, Oh! how it rends the heart. The cold grave looks so dark, so damp, So silent and so drear; Oh! what a lonely bed for those Who are to us so dear. But ’tis a blessed, cheering truth Their spirits arc not there; They dwell in blessed mansions Where all is bright and fair. Then let us dry our scalding tears, Press on t’ward Canaan’s shore; That we may meet our friends again, Where parting comes no more. Destitution in Patrick County. Advices from Patrick Co., Ya., to Ihe 11th inst. corroborate the previous reports as to the destitution i...

POETRY ; WILD WEATHER OUTSIDE. MARGARET E. SANGSTEE. Wild weather outside where the brave ships g°, And fierce from all quarters the four winds blow— Wild weather and cold, and the great waves swell, With chasms beneath them as black as hell. The waters frolic in Titan play, They dash the docks with an icy spray, The spent sails shiver, the lithe masts reel, And the sheeted ropes arc as smooth as steel. And oh that the sailor were safe once more Where the sweet wife smiles in cottage door! The little cottage, it shines afar O’er the lurid seas, like the polar star. The mariner tossed in the jaws of death Hurls at the storm a defiant breath; Shouts to his mates through "the writhing foam, “Courage! please God, w’e shall yet win home!” Frozen and haggard and wan and gray, But resolute still; ’tis the sailor’s way. And perhaps—at the fancy the stern eyes dim-* Somebody’s praying to-night for him. Ah me, through the drench of the bitter rain, How bright the picture that rises plain! Sur...

POETRY. HOW I LOVE YOU. You ask mo how I love you, dear? I see your very soul arise, And torn by passionate hope and fear, Look at me from your questioning eyes All! sweet imploring eyes, from whence Shall I draw fitting words to fashion The heart’s unspoken eloquence Into the story of my passionV Beyond our feeble earthly sight, Behind the soul’s deep mystery, Love dwclleth—an eternal That never shone on land or sea! Sometimes a burning ray escapes From that still glory unaware, Touches some lip with flame—and shapes Itself into a song or prayer. Some wondrous inspiration, wrought On poesy’s gold-lettered pages, That strikes the master-key of thought, And rolls in music down the ages. For only can the poet’s art Interpret to the listening throng The glowing language of the heart, Breathed into some undying song. And so, dear heart, I may not tell How all my life is thine—nor why—--1 only know I love thee well, With love that nannot change or die; For, when the heavenly day hath daw...
