ITo®[E°®3B)!E “Come, gather round lire blazing hearth, And with reflection temper mirth ” SOWING AND REAPING. “ Reaping where you have not sown.” We took occasion, one of the fine morn ings oflasl week, to make an excursion be yond the city limits, attracted hy the fresh ness of the air, the cool crispyness of which seemed to give new play to the Itttigs, and anew gush to the blood. The blue sky a- Itove had not yet put on the hazy dimness of Indian summer, though the gossamer was flitting away in the breeze, twisted and dis torted by its rapid motion; and the lovely hues which the forest had lately worn, its vanegated garments ofautumnal beauty were fading into sober brown, and theleaves were pouring down from the trees, shaken by the wind, and crisped and curled by thesun, till the stem could no longer bold them to the branch. It was a day for a poet —we are none— and so we thought of poor Clark, and his rich fancy, that seized on all these attractive beauties of nature, combined them in song, and gave them to the world—to that world which learned to love nature from the love liness of his verse. Clark is low: his foli age was shaken from the branches before the untumn storm had dimmed its beauty. It fell while it was receiving and giving charms; and we now, in the dryness of age, remem ber the richness and lustre of his blossoms, that shall bring forth fruit, where no tempest deform the skies, and no autumn frosts with er the herbage. Pursuing this idea, we leaned against a fence, and contemplated the brilliant, hut fading scene around us, and startled as a footstep denoted the approach of n man. It was an old man. too; he had come across the ploughed field, and seemed intent upon the tender grain just slmoting up from the mellow earth. We saluted him respectful ly—age and usefulness should command res pect. He returned our salutation with a quiet courtesy, that induced conversation. With the farmer, the talk about weather is not a tnero gossip. He looks to the winds and clouds, not to avoid labor, but to insure success ; and the former and the latter rains are to him blessings, likethc dew upon Her mon, and the dew upon the mountains. So we remarked that the weather had beet) re markably fine during the present month “Delightful, delightful,” said he, “delight ful. The sun has shown out almost contin ually, and the air has been healthful and bracing. Now and then a cloud has gath ered in the Heavens, but it scorned scarcely large enough to cover the deep blue above, that hung skirts, in lovely contrast, like the eyeof infancy. And when it has rained, it seemed so sparing and so gentle, that the sun looked out upon the wa ter drops before they bad been absorbed, like the smiles of the same infant in the inidst of tears.” “ You have needed rain,then—more,per haps, than you have had.” “ The eatth has required much rain—it is dry and parched—the grass has been burnt out of the upland. But one of the worst ef fects of the exceedingly dry weather in Sep tember and October, is the difficulty of sow ing our winter grain, and the still greater difficulty of its taking root, and sprii:gin up.” “ That requires rain, then,” said we. “Frequent showers; indeed, we ought almost to scatter the seed in a shower, if we hope to have much pleasure in reaping.” “ Q,ue simenant in laclirymis, in exulta tiones metent,” thought we rather aloud. The man, when we looked up, was gaz ing in our face. “ Sow in teats and reap in joy,” said we pointing to the field. A sl'ght smile upon the face of the farm er, faded away slowly into a thoughtful, me lancholy look. “I have indeed,” said he, “in this field, sown in an abundance of tears. Whether 1 shall reap in joy—whether I shall share in the glorious harvest, I know not.” *• I trust you will, for many harvests,” aaid we, “ hut has that come up which you Sowed in the field !” We both looked across the broad lot, till oureyes rested upon a stone wall at a dis tance, in the lower part of the field ; and after a moment's pause our friend said— “ All has not come up that I have sowed here—sowed in tears, too, and sowed in hope.” “ The earth clods,” said we, “ Reern to be strong and heavy; they probably prevent the fulfilment of your hopes.” ” Yes, yes,” said our friend,lookingawav again into the vale, and evidently speaking to himself, rather than us ; “ the clods of the valley do rest upon them. Will you walk across the field !” There was something so attractive in the melancholy of the stranger, that we accept ed his invitation. Entering the lower part of the field by another avenue, we found ourselves c lose to the stone wall that we had noticed at a dis tance, and we entered a narrow enclosure. It was a family burying ground. A few trees had grown up among the long grass, and they were pouring down their seared leaves upon the graves below. My companion leaned over the headstone of the principal grave, a id pointed to a smaller one at its side. “ The frost and wind,” said lie, “ that ate stripping the trees above us, can scarcely make them barer than I have been left.— One after another they have dropped from me, and the last, the hardest, because the la*.” A little hillock was swelling up, whose ttewly laid sod told of the recency of the poor man’s affliction—wife, child and mand chiid. “And these,” said he, “ I have planted in tears. Beyond the wall, the grain which my hand scatteied abroad, comes forward to repay my toil, and 1 may reap in joy ; but from this narrow field, nothing springs up, aod I can never reap with joy what I have planted with many tears.” The dryness of the season, and tho mel ancholy fall of the leaf, had evidently con spired with recent affliction, to disturb the philosophy of my companion, and 1 sought to cheer him, but scarcely with effect; he seemed to cling to the comparison of the wheat. “ The grain,” said we, “ which you reap, is not that which you sow; the earth re ceives the decaying seed, and gives back a perfect harvest. And that which you have deposited here, must be gathered in incor ruption. and you can reap in joy only where tears are unknown.” “ I have, then,” said the stricken man, “ set up my expectations of happiness on earth! It was wrong, but unintentionally wrong. My declining years should have taught me other things. And 1 will, here after, make my faith superior to my earthly grief; and mark the signal,” said he, point ing back to the slender shaft just raised at St. Peter’s Church, “mark the beautiful sig-- rial. The beams of the declining sun are reflected with lustre from yonder emblem, where tbe gilded cross stands brilliant above tbe globe, to show us how superior to the earth is that faith which can sustain our in firmities.” “ There is, then, a hope,” said we, “ that there will be a harvest in which you can share with joy.” He looked down upon thehillocks below, for a time, and, then, raising his eyes till they rested again upon the emblem, said, “ 1 shall go to them—they shall not return to me.”— U. S. Gazette. The Dead. —There is perhaps, no feeling of our nature so complicated, so vague, so mysterious, as that with which we look upon the cold rernainsof our fellow mortals. The dignity with which death invests even the meanest of victims, inspires us with an awe no living creature can create. The mon arch, on his throne is less awful than the beggar in his shroud. The marble features, the powerless hand, the stiffened limds, the eye closed and glazed—oh ! who can con templaate these with feelings which can he defined ! These are the mockery of all our hopes and fears—of our fondest love, and of our fellest hate. Sublime Extract. —lt is a terrible thought, at an hour like this, to remember that no thing can be forgotten. I have somewhere read, that not an oath is uttered that does not continue to vibrate throngh all time, in the wide-spreading currents of sound—not a prayer lisped, that its record is not also to be found stamped on the laws of nature by the indelible seal of the Almighty’s will.
