Pendleton, Editor. .Warrenton, January 20 13 POETRY. “ The world is full of Poetry—the air Is living with its spirit: and the waves Dance to the music of its melodies, And sparkle in its brightness.” YOUTH AND AGE. When we arc young, our days are like The fountain-waves that flow in June, Thar sparkle in the golden sun, Or gleam beneath the silver moon. When we arc old, our moments glide Like Winter waters cold and drear, That freeze before December’s voice Has sighed the death-note of the year. When we arc voting the clouds around Our path have hues of glory on, Like those which sleep on Summer skies Before the crimson flush is gone. When we are old, no ray concealed Within th<’ folded vapor lies, But gloomy shadows overspread The circle of Life’s evening skies. Oil then, since with the hours that fade Our being’s light is fading too, How shall we find a hope to cheer When we to youth must hid adieu ! In heaven and not on earth there glows A sun whose pure and perfect ray Will warm the freezing waves of life And change its twilight into day. P. B. [New-Yorker. MISCELLANEOUS. A Prize Tale, from the Philadelphia Saturday Courier. HENRY ST. CLAIR. BY J. G. WHITTIER. Henry St. Clair ! —How at the mention of that name a thousand dreams of friendship and vouth—and of the early and beautiful associa tions which linger like invisible spirits around us, to be called into view only by the magical influence of memory, are awakened ! How does the glance of retrospection go back to the dim images of the past—from the banquet hall and the pleasant festival, down to the silent and unbroken solitude of the tomb. We were as brothers in childhood—St.Clair and myself,—brothers too in the dawning of manhood ; and a more ingenuous and high minded friend I never knew. Yet he was strangely proud—not of the world’s gifts— wealth, family and learning—but of his intel lectual power—of the great gift of mind which he possessed—the ardent and lofty spirit which shone out in his every action. And he might well be proud of such gifts. I never knew a 53 a Mi&flLSO'u’tEa, PBiDWES & P£J[3!L!]3M2a a finer mind. It was as tiie embodied sp vt of poetry itself, tne beautiful borne of and glorious aspirations. Henry St. Clair was never at heart a Chris tian. He never enjoyed the visitations of that june and blessed influence, which comes into the silence and loneliness of the human bosom, to build up anew the broken altars of its faith, and revive the drooping flowers of its desola ted nflections. He loved the works ot the great God with the love of an enthusiast. — But beyond the visible and outward forms— the passing magnificence of the heavens—the beauty and grandeur of the earth, and the illim itable world of waters, his vision never exten. dcd. His spirit never overlooked the clouds which surrounded it, to catch a glimpse of the better and more beautiful land* I need not tell the story of his young years, ft has nothing to distinguish it from a thousand others. It is the brief and sunny biography if one upon whose pathway the sunshine of happiness rested, unshadowed by a passing loud. We were happy in our friendship,— but the time of manhood came ; and we were ►arted by our diflerent interests, and by the op* ositc tendency of circumstances peculiar to • ich other. It was a night in autumn- —a cold and star* ■ oss evening—l remember it with painful dis. iicfjicss, although year after year has mingled ritli eternity,—that I find occassion to ptiLS in iv way homeward, through one of the dark-* t and loneliest alleys of iny native city.— Anxious to reach my dwelling, I was hurrying gerly forward, when l left myself suddenly ized by the arm ; and a voice close in my ir whispered hoarsely, “ Stop ! or you are a cad man.” 1 turned suddenly, I heard the cooking of pistol, and saw by a faint gleam from a ncigb oring window, the tall figure of a man—one uind grasping my left arm, the other holding x weapon at my breast. I know r.ot what prompted me to resistance; was totally unarmed, and altogether unac quainted with the struggle of mortal jeopardy; hit 1 did resist—and, one instant I saw my as* ailanl in the posture I have described, —tho text, he was disarmed and writhing beneath no. It seemed as if an infant’s strength could l ive subdued h’m. “ Wretch !” I exclaimed, as I held his own •istol to his bosom, •“ what is your object / \re you a common midnight roblxtr—o> hear you aught of private malice towards Roger* Allston ?” “Allston!—Roger Allston!” repeated tho --V retch beneath me, in a voice which sounded ;ke a shriek, os he struggled half upright even •gainst the threatening pistol. “ Great God ! las it come to this ? Hell has no pang like iris meeting ! Shoot !” he exclaimed, and there was a dreadful earnestness in his mnn nner, which sent the hot blood of indignation cold and ice-like upon my heart. “Shoot!— you were once rny friend—in mercy kill me!” ' A horrible suspicion flashed over my mind. I felt a sudden sickness at my heart, and tiie pistol fell from my hand. “Whoever you maybe,” I said, “and what ever may have been your motive in attacking me, I would not stain my hands with your blood. Go, and repent of your crimes.” “You do not know me,” said the robber, as with some difficulty he regained his feet; “even you have forgotten me. Even you refuse the only mercy man can now render me—the mer cy of death—of utter annihilation !” Actuated by a sudden and half-defined im pulse, I caught hold of the stranger’s arm, anc! hurried him towards the light of a street lamp. It fell full upon his ghastly and death-like fea tures, and on his attenuated form, and his rag ged apparel. Breathless and eagerly I gazed upon him, until he trembled beneath the scru tiny. I pressed my hand against my brow, for I felt my brain whirl like the coming on of delirium. I could not be mistahen. The guil ty wretch before me was the friend of my youth—one whose memory I had cherished as the holiest legacy of the past. It was Henry St. Clair! Yes !it was St. Clair ! but how changed since last we had communion with each other ! Where was the look of intelli gence, and the visible seat of intellect-the beau ty of person and mind ? Gone ! and gone* NO. IT.
