' - THE MIDSIGHT
Mournfully! O, mournfully, , - r
This midnight wind doth sigh,
Lite some sweet, plaiutire melody
Of ages long gone by !
It speaks a tale of other years,
Of bopes that bloomed to die,
Of sunny smiles that set in tears,
And loves that mouldering lie!
Mournfully! O, mournfully"
This midnight wind doth moan.
It stirs some chord of memory
In each dull, heavy tone ;
The Voices of the much lored dead
Seem floating thereupon,
All," all my fond heart cherished
Ere death had made it lone.
Monrnfully ! O, mournfully
The midnight wind doth swell.
With its quaint, pensive miustrelsy,
Hope s passionate farewell
To the dreamy joys of early years,
Lie jet grief's canker fell
On the heart's bloom, ay ! well may tears
Start at that parting knell !
A OllKCl V.V SATIIIE.
When lovely women stoops alas to frolic
And rues the ruse, too late,
What balm .shall soothe lier melancholic?
What art shall set her back up straight?
The only thing for her disaster
The only way her woe to end,
Is to apply a mustard plaster
If she won't do it, let her bend.

A SEAKCII VOll A VOCATION.
Lifk. Life was of course a vale of
tears. Years rhymed with tears, so
it was a length of years.
" Life is a weary vale of tears,
A dreary, dusky length of years,
Where not a ray of light appears. ?'
Then I got life out again gradual

" But pilgrims o'er its paths may mark
Ilow lights of Faith transform the dark
And Hope illumes it with her spark."
1 was puzzling over the next verse
when the dinner-bell rung, and I had
to take measures to sustain life; but
in the course of the cfiernoon I cot
through four verses more of the same
stamp, and arrived at my grand liuis:
Forests of crosses block the way ;
All round the lowering sky is gray
And dim and dark, look where we may,
Put still, as farther we advance,
And unknown beauties meet our glance.

I wustxhaustcd. I was unused
to severe mental labor; still the su
preme satisfaction which the reperus
al of these lines gave me repaid me
for all; and when I had it in an en
velope ready to dispatch, I felt that
I had laid the foundatiou for great-
The glory of having written that
poem lasted me a week. I consider
ed that I could now sit down and
wait for events.
A fortnight went by. I began to
be doubtful. Three week?; and I
found little encouragement in the re
membrance ' that the " American
people are slow to appreciate genius;
and Mr. Bryant, their first poet, is
obliged to edit a newspaper for sup
port." Wasn't Mr. Bryant?
One evening Sue came dashing in
from school and tossed a letter on
my lap, saying, merily.
" Are you an aspiring young wo
man, Janet? That looks suspicious.''
I had been sitting idly in the win
dow, in the most romantic and mel
ancholy style possible. Sue ruined
my attitude; for, without waiting to
answer, 1 raced out of the room un-
dignifiedly and broke open the en
velope with trembling fingers.
Alas! I drew out my own lines;
then a printed " form'' of refusal:
" We hereby return to Miss Spin
ney the poem ' Life,' and regret that
it will not suit our columns.'
Not suit their columns? What
were their columns, that it didn't
suit? What mental blindness was
this, that let such a poena go unwel-
This was a downfall, and an inter
val ot blankness followed. 1 began
to appreciate my own description of
life, considering that it was truly a
vale of tears.
I was tempted to despair; but that
immortal sentence which has long
comforted struggling humanity came
to my aid: "Rome was not built in a
day;" therefore Jane Spinney couldn't
electrify the work! in a day.
wasn't grandiloquent as I had been
before, but I determined grimly that
a master-piece should appear and it
should be the work of Jan Spinney.
I took time for it ; I mean I was
going to take time for it; but my
time was taken away from me
Louisa Grant, a friend of Sue's came
to visit us, and I was forced to re
main in common place.".
The one advantage of my situation
was that I had my chamber to my
self. Sue and Louisa occupied
another apartment; so I could write
after eleven . .o'clock at night, if I
could possibly keep enthusiasm so
I thought I would come down to
the level of other people's minds:
" Life" had been a great deal too
deep. I would write a ballad

" The Lady's Despair."
I will not inflict the particulars
upon the reader. Suffice it to say 1
went to work and burned midnight
oil for six consecutive nights, thus
attracting numberless comments from
I must sny that it was hard work.
The necessity of rhyming interfered
tvith conclusions dreadfully. Noth
iDg but my faith in the result carried
me through; but on the sixth night I
did get through.
The family hud grown tired of
hre that evening, for a wonder,
and had iuclined toward slumber
generally at ten o'clock. I had bade
fcue and Louisa good night in the
passage, and had sought my own
apartment, invigorated by the thought
that I had only one verse more to
write; however, that verse occupied
me till after eleven.
By the time I had looked over the
whole thirteen verses it was half past
eleven. I didn't hear the crirls'
voices any longer; I supposed they
lad gone to sleep. I was solitary
alone with my grand thoughts. 1
thought, myself, it would be very
nice to " sit, on winter nights, by a
solitary fire, aud hear the nations
raising me, a far off." I didn't doubt
I should have that experience.
I thought I would read the poem
over; read it aloud, to get a better
idea of it. I tilted myself back in
my chair comfortably and began:
" TIIE LADY'S DESPAIR."
" A lady with a weary face
Sat at a turret window high,
And watched the sky."
Good; gave you the idea of pa
" A lady fair, with lofty grace,
She sat and wept full drearily,
And none were nigh."
I thought I heard a sound. I lis
tened; but it was not repeated. I
had been mistaken.
" A knight went riding far below,
Looked up and waved a sad farewell,
Careless of what befell."
There was a queer noise again:
perhaps rats in the wall.
He rode upon a steed of snow.
And in that fair and pleasant dell
Had loved the lady well."
Certainly no sympathetic person
could read this without tears.
'Three strokes rang from the tower bell ;
She forward leaned, and looked to see
Ilim passing slow and silently,
ISoth were so sad rtwas hard to tell
Which was the saddest of them, he
A perfect scream of laughter rang
in my astonished ears. It proceeded
from the hall. I darted to the door
with the rapidity of lightning, and
flung it open wrathfully.
1 here was Sue doubled op on the
hall floor, in convulsions of laughter,
and Louisa holding by the stair rail
ing, with the tears running down her
" Or she," gasped Sue, going off
again as 6he caught a glimpse of my
indignant countenance. "Oh, Jane,
Jane, you'll kill uit!"
I was near wishing I could; but
my utter stupefaction prevented the
expression of the wish, and it seemed
quite impossible for either Sue or
Louisa to stop laughing long enough
to say another word.
" I really think; Jane," gasped Sue
again, making a great effort to speak,
" that this will suit our columns.
Don't you, Louisa?"
" Its pathos P Louisa managed to
" And its beautiful flow. Have
her die, Jane, do. TTave her leap

"But get the knight out of the
way first," suggested Louisa, wiping
her eyes. "The full might crnsh
And they both relapsed again.
"If you thiuk this is honorable,"
I began, regaining my voice finally,
' I must say I differ with you.''
M We aren't exalted," said Sue,
"not at all. We're in a state of
abasement, Louisa and I. But a cat
may look at a king, you know, or
we may listen to a poetess."
I shut the door in their faces an
grily, and locked it. Sue shouted
her " regrets that she didn't hear the
whole of it'' through the keyhole;
but, as I made no answer, they both
departed ai?d went to rest.
1 flung the poem into the fire; and
then all my dignity didn't save me
from crying. That most woeful of
troubles had come upon me, viz: my
faith in myself had been shaken. I
was afraid the ship hadn't any pilot,
the traveler hadn't any guide,. and I
hadn't any vocation.
Not a moment did I sleep that
night; and in the morning my eyes
were so red I would not go down,
but locked myself in my chamber,
reflecting pleasantly that Sue was
probably amusing the breakfasters
with an account of the ' Lady's De
spair." I was very unhappy, and
had an idea of making a hermitess of
myself in future.
By-and-by there came a tap at the
door, and my mother's voice, asking
to come in.
"Jane," she said, " I have brought
you your breakfast, and some advice.
What a faculty you have for making
" make myself miserable?'
" I know it was unpardonable in
Sue to annoy you so; but you should
be aboTC such tlrngs."
"Above such things?"
" What ever put it into your head,"
continued my mother, " to think you
could write verses?"
" You think a girl should do noth
ing but wash dishes and iron shirts?"
said I, indignantly. " I feel myself
Gt for somtthiu": higher.'
" I don't want to hurt your feel
ings, Jane, but "
" And I want some work especial
" Did you always feel fitted for
1 was obliged to confess that the
attack had como ou suddenly.
" Bat I want an object to work
" Then," said my mother, " make
binding shoes the object, rather than
writing verses; for you are sure you
could do the first well. Cultivate
any talent you have, Jane, only be
sure you have it."
Binding shoes can't be a voca
tion for me."
" A vocation? Why do yon want
a vocation? Why should you hate
a vocation more than the girls around
you? Duty is a vocation, Jane."
" I can't do common things."'
" Then pray don't consider that a
proof that you can do tmcommon
ones, l tninK, it l were you, i wouia
make common-sense a speciality."
And so I lost the only glimpse of
a vocation I ever was favored with;
for I hadn't the obstinacy to persist
in the face of everything. I aban
doned my stand-point with as good as
I could, lost the hope of distinction,
and fell back into stocking darning
and obscurity, where I have remained
ever since. Long study has made
ma mistress of the ab-c of life, and I
am at present a peaceful old maid,
whose chief use is to look after Sue's
children, and whose principal occupa
tion is gossiping and tea-drinking.
Children need smiles as flowers
need sunbeams. If they meet them
at home, they will be happy and con
tented there; if not, they will be like
Iv to seek elsewhere for them. And
who can blame them?

NATURE OF TIIE ROAD.
We took a niagniGcent sleeping
coach on the west side of the Rocky
Mountains and awoke next mornin
at Cheyenne city, entirely out of the
Black Hills, a distance of nearly 200
miles from where we took the coach.
We could scarcely realize that the
day before, we had been three or
four hundred miles West of the
The road is well built and a great
portion of the way very straight, so
that when everything is properly reg
ulated, good time can be made.
There is one stretch of GO miles aK
most as straight as a line. Coming
down to Xorth Tlattte we ran one
stretch of 1G miles in 17 minutes.
Saw no buffalo on the route, and
but two or three droves of antelope.
We did not see a wild Indian on the
route. They have crone with the buf
When it becomes desirable and
necessary for the Government to open

way over the continent, there is no
cheaper nor more expeditious way to
establish such a route than to build a
railroad through that country. It
effectually disposes of the Indian ques
RECEIPTS OF THE ROAIT.
The earnings of this road are enor
mous. 1 was told tuat at tne little
station of Bryan, the receipts for
passengers alone during Kovember,
were over $43,000, and that the ac
tual receipts of the road each day,
will almost pay for the next day's
work at the end of the track. This
is perfectly astonishing, as co one
thought to make any particular ac-
count of the way business through
this barren country. It shows what
our Northern road will do when built
through a rich agricultural, grazing
and mineral country, such as it will
The company are at work on
their new Dridge at Omaha, and have
a temporary bridge on the ice for
this winter, so that trains can now
pass without breaking cargo. I saw
one red Boston car that had strayed
away from the ' Hab" and was west
of the Rocky Mountains, goicg on
to the end of the track.
I have not seen a point on the en
tire route that I consider as good a
place for investment as Council Bluffs
The bridge at Omaha, which is es
timated will cost $6,000,000, is bound
to cause a large number of railroads
to concentrate at this point, as the
company have the power to dictate
terms to other railroads sending
freight or passongrrs over thp east

TALK OF A STATESMAN,
I tailed on Governor dearv as I
passed through Uarrisburg. I found
him a statesman of the most libera!
and generous ideas, entirely alive to
the interests of our coast, and partis
ularly to those of the North Pacific
R-ailroad. He said it would be his:
policy for the Government to assist
in building the Northern and South
ern Pacific roads, if it took the Ias-8
dollar in the Treasury ;: but he agreed
in the opinion that it would' not be
necessary to nse a single dollar irt
cash for that purpose. He is a prac
tical civil engineer and promises to.
come to Washington this winter to
assist in bringing the matter before
Congress. With the influence and
hearty co-operation of a few such men
as Governor Geary there will be but
little difficulty in getting our different
bills passed, cud be the means of es
tablishing and building up such a ca
reer of prosperity on our owp coast
as has never been dreamed of by the'
most sanguine. .Governor Geary in
vited me to deliver a lecture before
the Legislaiure in Uarrisburg this
winter on the character and resources
of our North Pacific coast, which I
have promised to do.
I will endeavor to- keep you posted:

MI1S. SCIIVTLEU COLFAX.
Harpers Bazar, for December 5 th ,
devotes a page to Schuyler Colfax:
and his bride, Miss Wade, giving ex
cellent portraits of both,- with s rep
resentation of the bridal gift from
Mr. Colfax. . The Bazar, in speaking
of Miss Ella . Wade, now Mrs-.
Colfax, says the picture shows a' sen--sible,
earnest, and thoughtful face,-
the owner of which would be likely
to give none but good counsel to her
husband in his responsible position.
A friend who knows her well says
" she is just thirty-two,- and not
ashamed of her age. She is' hot tall,
nor short, nor stout, but wiH average
140 pounds. She is not handsome.
but good-looking. She is quiet, re
served, repressed, self-poised, and
self-controlled to a remarkable de
gree. But you think of her that still
tvaters run deep. She seems to have
had a life a quist country town,
village, and farm life that had not
been congenial, or rather ha3 not
drawn her ont at all; and her repress
ed manner and nature are due possi
bly to this. There is no gush, or
brilliancy, no show, no exuberance
in raaDnef, appearance, and style
Her new life will bring her out; but
she has nothing of what is called
' society manners,' and will make no
impression upon the multitude.
Fastidious and feminine to a very
high and rare degree in one of snch
experience, she is a most admirable
selection for a wife for' Mr. Colfax
a sweet, true, self-adjusted woman,
with a younger heart than I ever saw
at thirty odd years, who never would
make a career for herself, but would
accept and fill whatever place came
to her in the way of duty." With
such a woman as this for the wife of
the Vice President, and such a wo
man as Mrs. Grant in the White
House, we may expect a new order
of society matters at Washington
which shall exert a beneficial influ
ence throughout the country. The
day of plain common sense, which
suits the character of the American
people, dawns nt last
