He told her of the strange and rare
His travelled eye had known—
He told it in his choicest words
And in his softest tone.
He brought her crescents for her hah
And jewels for tier hand.-,
And nil the presents, rich and rare,
Which boundless wealth command-
She cherished them-because she deem
They were his true love's plight,
Amj gave him, smiling, in return,
A ringlet black and bright.
‘lake I. ns’ she said ‘and let (he curl

Sweet K it'.leen,say thou art mine own
And take me to thine arm's!’
Cold, m arble-pale and all agh ist,

Rti-hed trie proud crimson blood,
‘L >ve riic!’ she cried, ‘and never dar< !

THE MURDERER’S GRAVE.
Some years past, whilst travelling
through those rallies, forced by the
juts, of the great Iron, or Bald Vloun
tain, where th mountains tonent des

plains, 1 was co apelled in consequenc'

at an humble cottage,a short distance
horn a turbulent stream, the crossing
of w . ".owing to its prodigious rise,

mates of the humble dwelling to be
perfectly dangerous. On inquiry, i
found (bat it would require some davs
to get within iC? a crossing

my feeling to the necessity of the case,
I determined to rest myself, and m\

an aparim mt in a small cabin, around
which every object gave striking evi- 1
deuce, that something vas dreadfully
wrong among them. Li one corner of
the room, in the most dejected itti’ude
sat an emaciated worn m, about whom,
every thing betokened anguish of the
bitterest kind. Her fice was deepiv
furrowed by sorrow.-—From eyes
wuich evidently once sparkled, thero
were traces ot tears h iving long and
profusely ian—the whole cast ofcoun
tenance speaking in language, perfect
ly intelligible, that the heart was bro

tear starting fmm her eyes—md poin.

knew me—his teeth chattered—weals
and enfeebled as tie alarm seem

, of haifing me as a friend with whom he
had once been intimate, with a hmi
groan he exclaimed, “qh God, now I
drink the bitter dregs of the mt ter

to l.iy eYiaurted, and convuLed for

under the emoiio >s of a dr a iful sur

thri recollection ol the foul crime .ow

I regretted for a moment, that I had
