BY J. C. LANGSTON.
I had a dream which was not nit a dream —Byrom. 1
Within a mansion grand and stately
I beheld a maiden fair,
An.l tlu> softly streaming lamnliirht •
Play’d upon her golden hair.
j Xow her eyes were looking downward
With a lustre all their own,
J And her voice was sweetly mingled
With the harp string’s mellow tone.
Not alone was she thus sitting
Like a Peri from the sea,
For a youth stood close beside tier,
, List’ningto the melody.
lie was here but as a stranger
Who had come awhile to dwell,
But ere long, a helpless victim,
’Neath the Archer’s dart he fell.
Now his eyes were flx’d intently
On the beauty of her face,
Where the Houris tried to ravish
Witli the magic of their grace.
His parted lips with rapture quiver’d, I
And his cheek’s hue went and came, |
As her dulcet music thrill’d him
With love’s silent, binning flame.
Yet he breath’d no loving whisper,— I
For his love sought no return,
But, in fearless peace and gladness,
Let the spark, enkindled, burn.
Often did they walk together
Down the lanes and up the hills,
List’ning to the twilight vespers
Os the birds and murmuring rills.
Near by ran a crystal river,
And a down it would they glide,
While their voices, softly blended
I With the gently rippling tide.
i Long I watch’d the pair tints passing
Weeks and monl lis of life’s young day,
Till his soul had clasp'd her image
So it could not fade away.
I Tho’ lie lov’d with true devotion,
All his vows were vain to move; —
| To another had the maiden
Breath’d her timid pledge of love.
When the mournful truth was told him, I
Anguish filled Ids bosom then;
j Wretched, hopeless, and despairing,
Far he fled from haunts of men.
i Liv’d a lone, forsaken hermit,
From the busy world conceal’d; |
All affection's limpid fountains
In his bosom had congeal’d.
| But the maiden wed the other,
And her roseate future smiled;
I Infant lips soon eall’d her, mother,
And her sorrows all beguil’d.
J Thus her lot was like an Eden,
Where no hitter words were spoken; |
But while she was lov’d and happy,
One true, manly heart was broken. j
Once again I look’d, but vanish’d
Were the objects of my theme;
And I woke with bosom grateful
That it had been all a dream.
Yet I thought how many a story
Could this simple dream relate:
Blighted hopes and tearful partings
By ttie stern decrees of fate.
All ! there’s many a heart thus broken, J
Many a tale of grief unsung;
Many an anguish never spoken,
From the quivering heart strings
Many a hidden spring of sorrow,
Many a tear drop never shed;
Many a bosom that, unheeded,
Has in silent anguish bled.
How to get sick.
Expose yourself day and
eat ton much without exT-foTse*
work too hard without rest ;

It was my pleasure to attend the I
camp meeting at Concord, on lust j
Sabbath. There was an immense I
crowd present The presiding El
der preached at 11 o'clock. The!
sermon was a doctrinal one, and ■
abounded in foot incontrovertible, j
it was well received by the Imr e
crowd present and doubtless much j
good was effected. Rev. J. E. B.
Lewis preached at 3 o’clock, his ef
fort was replete with wisdom, and
instructions to parents in regard to
training their children, he showed !
conclusively that the earliest itn- ;
pressions were the most lasting and
that they were under many obliga
tions to train them for the Lord.
