Though bright or sad, but ill bespeak The feelings of her breast. They in ay some anxious thought impart, But those who've most relied, Know not the love of woman's heart Until that heart be tried. There may in her uncertain smile, Some token be of grief Some impulse-which may, for awhile, In sorrow seek relief. But those who most hare watched the past. Portrayed by hope or pride. Know least the love of woman's heart, Until that heart be tried ! THE BBOKEIT-HEAKTED: OS, CBIMK ITS OWN AVENGER.

This, though anticipated, is a strange verdict That Sickles was 8 murderer in law, none can truthfully deny ; and we cannot see how a ju ry, with Incontestible evidence of Intentional killing before them, could make a return of "not guilty," without doing violence to their consciences. We do not say that Sickles de served to be hang. Far from it. lie was a ranch injured man he had been deeply wrong ed by Key; but that wrong should have been considered a palliation of, not an excuse for the homicide which followed. It would hare jastified the jury in returning a verdict of manslaughter, or of murder in the second de gree, with a recommendation to mercy ; it did not and cannot justify a verdict of acquittal.
