As 'cross tlie sky a clou I was diivcn. Ami then she sighed, and ihen forgot The star wan shining still in heaven. A mother sat beside life's «tn am, Watching a dying child nl dawn, Ami smiled, ns in its eye she saw A hope that it might still love nn. She smiled until the eyelids eloped, But watched fur breath until the even ; And then she wept, and then forgot Tlie child was living still in hes»ven.

A correspondent ofthe Worcester News, writing from Matamoras, gives a description nf the manner of building houses in the cities of Mexico, which we copy below. The poorer classes, in building their hots, club together after the manner of our farmers when " raising a barn,'" and thus mutually aid one another. The houses of the first class, those belonging tn the meichnnts and other persons of wealth, are j built of nun-dried brick, only one story high, with | bul few exceptions, and fiat roofs. The walls nn* hollow and very thick, say twenty inches. This form is well adapted to the country, to guard against robber* nnd burglars, so common in the i place; ...

POPULAR SELECTIONS. SCOTTISH TRADITIONAL STORIES. Bruntfield. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 18 March 1847
POPULAR SELECTIONS. SCOTTISH TRADITIONAL STORIES. Bruntfield. Among the many family quarrels which arose out of the civil contentions in Scotland, during the reign of Queen Mary, there was one of a melancholy nature which sprung up between Stephen Bruntfield, of Craighouse, and Robert Moubray, of Barnbougle. The first cause of the enmity between these two persons is uncertain. It is onlyknown that Moubray, with a party of followers, having succeeded, in the name of Regent Murray, in taking Craighouse, after a seign of two months, barbarously murdered its unfortunate proprietor while conducting him under a promise of protection to Edinburgh. The scene of this bloody deed is still pointed out in the southern environs of that city, and is called from the circumstance, Bruntfield Links.* Bruntfield left a widow and three infant sons. Lady Bruntfield, had been an intimate of Queen Mary; was educated with her in France in the Catholic faith, and had only left her court when she hecame a w...

Futsation had ceased. For three days the body was preserved tinburied, during which it had acquired a stony rigidity. The funeral, in short, was hastened, on account of the rapid advance of what was supposed to be decomposition. The lady was deposited in her family vault, which, fur three subsequent years, was undisturbed. j At ihe expiration of (his term, it wtis opened for j the reception of a sarcophagus;—but, alas! how i fearful a shuck awaited the husband, who, personally, threw open the door. As its portals swung outwardly buck, some wbite-uppurelled object fell rattling within his urnis. It was the skeleton of his wife hi her yet unmouldered shroud. A careful investigation rendered it evident (hut she bad revived within two days after her entombment —that her slruggles within the coffin had...
