Written for tho Sentinel
Once there through n forrsl strnyed
A nymph of beauty rare,
Whose heart was nil In grief nrrny'd,
Tor cue who was not tlicro.
Yet nno who hnd In other ilnv
Gnthcr'd wet llow'r forlicr,
And who had sung lovo's tender lays
lleiieath the dark green fir.
Hut like the summer breeze had flown
Ills Iotu, so uft nrntv'd,
And left lior nn n rce Iu bloom,
Hcncuth n shower how'd.
Sad were to her the summer days
The sun shone clear and bright ;
Hut not within lis npirkllng rays
San tho one gleam nf light.
Though with his Image In her mind,
Or him she ucTcr spoka ;
Hut pale with grief, she long did pluc,
Hoiicnlh the fatal stroke ;
Till nought or her could there be seen
Not e'en a shadowy light ;
Hut through tho ford and tho glen
Her toiee sounds clear and bright.
Knmirvii.ix, Teb. Cth, 1858.
There nre so many cards to play,
So many nays to chooso.
In Love and Politics and War,
In forwarding our views,
Willi ladles fair and statesmen wlio,
Or men of lcucr bumps,
Hcforo you lead your strongest suit
'TU well to know what's trump.
Once, worshipping at beauty's shrlno
I knelt In bondage sweet,
And breathed my rows with eagerness,
And offered at hor feet
My soul, well stored with Cupid's wealth,
A lov i-ccmcnted lump )
A king of diamonds took the trick
ily heart was not a trump.
Hating to sco my rival win
Upon a single ri4,
As ho played tho iltuce with me,
I followed with a elub.
Two days within a station-homo
llellrctlng on my sin.
I found, an others may havo done,
Clubs very seldom wlu.
Grown wlio by sad experience,
I cooso to deal with maids ;
I shuffled youthful follies oft.
And turned up Jack of spades ;
Yet still I find ai dust" Is scarco,
And smaller crow tho "lumps."
That though tho Spade's an honest card,
It Is not always trumps.
mtlsrichlJly with loadn'sss.

A ship, becalmed at sea, lay rocking la
zily. A sprightly lad, the captain's nnly
son, not knowing what to do, began mis
chlovnusly to climb the mast. Ilo had got
half wny to tho top, when, turning his eyes
below to sec how far ho Tins from tho dcok,
he suddenly grew dlzry.
"I am fating, I nm falling," he cried.

The following is tliO conclusion of Mr.
Caleb Cushlug's eloquent sjKtch, lately de
livered at I'ancull Hall, In Hoston :
Merchants of Massachusetts, with your
superb galleons, from the shipyards or Hast

your palatial manufactories to wiatolnto
apparel, for tho world's wear, tho agricultu
ral productions of Georgia and Alabama,
jhnoln'cn told hero that you must surren
der yourselves to tho il ytrlt of jealousy 1
of the South I
Citizens of Massachusetts! and especially
you of the Industrial classes, who wear tho
cotton, eat the corn and sugar, nnd drink
the cnlfco of slave labor, nnd who provide
objects of art for tho uso of slave labor, nnd
ofthoio who own It you alio havo been

Men of MaMacbusctts! you nro exhorted to ,
cultlvato amicable relation with Cuba-
alavo colony though It be to supply It with
lumber, fowl nnd other object or value, nnd
to buy und consume it produats, and thus
to sustain and perpetuate slavu labor there,
and lovo slavu owners, while jou aro called
upon to sacrlCco the pcaco and honor or tho
State, and dedicate yourself, from reproba
tion of slavo labor, to unceasing hostility
against your own countrymen of the South
When I hear eucli counsels darkly Inti
mated, under specious dlsguUo of speech, to
tho State of Massachusetts, It seems to ne
that tho first Tempter, na depicted by Mil-''a
tou, Is before my eyes
"Close nt the ear of Eve,
Assaying by his devilish art to reach
The organs of her fancy, nnd with them forge
Illusions, ns ho list, phantasms and dreams
Or if, Inspiring venom, he might taint
The animal spirits that from puro flood arise
Like gentlo breaths from rivers puro thence
At least distempered, discontented thoughts,
Vain hopes, vain aims, Inordinate desires,
Dlown up with high conceit engendering
I say down, down to tho iufernal pit
where they belong, with all these derelict
inspirations or malice, hatred, and uncharl
tablinvssl You, tho people or Massachu
setts, do not, In the Inner chamber or your
heart, approva and will not, on considera
tion, adopt tbl Abominable theory or hec
tlonal splto and hate. You will In tho end,
If not to-day, repel that policy withtcoru
and horror, llcfore that time of sober
judgment comes, I who stand up for tho
Unicn, in It letter and spirit who will
die In the breach rather than "lot Itslldc"
I may be struck down by the tempest of par
ty passion, but others, better and more for
tunate, will rlso up nnd fill tho gap in the
rank of the sacred phalanx or tbo soldiers
or tho Constitution. Man I feeble, ni6rtal,
transient 5 but our country Is powerful, Im
mortal, eternal. In tho long age of glory
wbicu no oeforo us rolling onward, one after

rustling on to (111 the rdaco or that which

an early chapter occurs the following touch
In 1853 I paid a visit to the State of Ten
nessee, and 1 made a pilgrimage to the lomu
of my Infancy and childhood, the place
where ence stood tho frontier cabin of.mj -father.
I now revisited the spot for the tint
. 1 i -n
"mated to Illinois. I bad left It -tntrc
I y careless, Sappy ciiliu l rcturnca
'to It In the wanTofllfo. More than half u -
century stood between those two points of
time. Dnring that lone period of my hum
ble, yet eventful history, the home of my
early years lived frckh and green In my
memory, just as I had seen it in childhood,
I had expected to find the whole appcaranoe
of the country much changed, nnd was not
surprised tiint highly cultivated farms with
their elegant mansions, occupied a region
which I hnd seen covered with on almost
unbroken forest. Hut tho most striking
features of tho landscape remained nnchsn
gcd. Tho mountain were iho same. Thrlr
lofty ruromlts rose to (lie hruvens with thu
tamo sublime grwidcur that excited my awe
and admiration when a child. I knew Irm
place where our cabin had Mood, though
every vestige or Its walls and roof Lad dis
appeared for more than a generation ego.
Nothing now remained to mark the spot,
except a slight elevation of tho ground
whero the chimney had been, and a 'few tint'
stones that wcro once our hi arth. I visited
j that hallowed spot alone. I stood upon the
.hearth-stone or my childhood. The memo
iry or early day thronged around my heart.
It almost seemed as IT I was onco more a
child, listening to tho stories of my mother
told mo In the long winter evenings, around
that very hearth. How well did I remem
ber telling her all my chlldUh griefs, nnd
with what gentleness eho chid my wayward
ness, banishing eversorrow with her nffee
tlonntc, soothing words. I almost fancied
that I could again feel her gentle hand part-
log tho luxuriant hnlr that'sl-ndrdmy youlli '
ful brow, and her warm kiss upon toy fore
head and lips. I caru not who may incer
at tho confession I wept like a child a 1
stood alono upon that hearth stone, and ,
thought of my fond, affectionate, my balut
cd mother or yore."
Stuiiuj Seen Hekmik. "l'uppy, old
Mr. Smith' gray colt ha broken Into our
cabbage patch again."
"He has, has be I Well, just load my ri
fle my ton, and we will see if an ounce of
lead will not learn Mr. Smith' colt to re
form his habits."
I Tbl colloquy pajjed between Mr. and
I Master Stubb Juit after tea. A soon as
dark come, Mr. Stubbs takes his rifle, march
es over towards old Smith' farm, nnd when --'
within about thirty yards of old Smith'
barn, ho raised the "deadly tube," took aim.
pulled the trigger, nnd dropped "one or tho
finest looking colts In tho country."
Stubb having fulfilled hi mission, re
turned home, went to bed, and slept with a
lighter conscience than he had enjoyed for
the last eight months. The next morning,
while seated nt break fast, who should bo
seen striding towards the domicll of Mr.
Stubb but old Mr. Smith. Smith entered
the homo Smith was excited Smith for a.
moment lacked words to express himself.
"Mr. Stubbs, I've cotno over to tell yoit

him home this morning, but it's no uso now,

that he bad killed the wrong horse drovo.
him to desperation, and caused him to seek
relief in a direction that rather astonished
