Light and Shade.
There comes a time to every life
When, heartsick, wenry of the strifa
And toil of living,
tVe fain would lay us down to rest.
And feel that we indeed were bleat.
Hands folded o'er the troubled breast,
An1 God forgiving
Our sins; arid errors of this Ufo
Which we are living.
But life Is not all dull and grey,
For after midnight conies the ray
Of early morning ;
And, after darkest nights of pain.
Our eyes behold the day as-aln.
As rainbows follow after rata;
The eky adorning
With hues which chase away the irrejr
Of early morning.
But know, our Father sends the night,
And, too, he also sends the light.
His wisdom provinir ;
For darkness makes the day more fair;
The fiercest lightning clears the aif.
And we, when thinking of this, dare
Not doubt Ids loving.
Nor that he sends both day and night
His wisdom proving.
Bj Mary E. C. Johnson.
A ROMANCE OF MARTINIQUE,

You have often told me that jroti knew

have, heard them speak of the Caravelle.
It is a w ild isthmus, so called ly the sail

always raging wildly enough there. Ah!
you should see the vaves as they leap
madly upon the rocks. Then tliey break
into dizzling white foam- sheets ft fur

And it is always going on; it nevei

But further down, the countty changes
entirely; it becomes perfectly fascinating.
The two sides of the isthmus resemble
two fairy lakes. It was for this reason
that its proprietor, the Count de Saint

so to speak, only one, we w ere so intimate.
Francis, the Count's only son, was like, a
brother with my sister and inc.
Any one who had seen us, tln ee-in-hand
funning like deer through the snnd, our
hair lifted by the breeze, mingling our
merry laughter with the murmur of tho
waves, would have believed that there are
Borne happy beings here on earth.
Our greatest pleasure was to run on the
cayes, or sand-bars and hunt for shells.
We left tit sunrise, a little basket on our

One winter day we returned from run

foreboding storm. Distant lightning dart

endeavoring to tear up fto'ir! ft sea fan a

arms, cried loud for assistance, llcr lor'r

and coiled, like serpents, around her
The negroes, hearing the cry, came in
their canoes. Before they arrived, Francis
had swam across, and stood by his sister,
They carried her beneath the palm
trees which bordered the shore. With her
arms entwined around her brother, she
cast on him glances of love; but from
time to time looked regretfully toward the

cried, at last.

not black. He was of the indigenous Ca

and had taken refuge among the rocks of
our peninsula. But the family had been
sadly reduced, under the English rule of
the island, and Sassa alone survived. He
bore the title of cacique, though without
subjects to rule. His name was Sassagari,
but the blacks, following their custom of
giving diminutives, always called him

large drops quickly falling announced a

homeward, bearing the shell.
The next morning tlie banana-trees,
beaten down in the rields," the uprooted
trees borne afar by torrents, were the on
ly indications of the storm of the previ
ous night. The heaven and the sea rest
ed, calm and beautiful, after their wild
passions had been gratified.
We started fof the cabin of Father
We found the Carib seated on a l&e
stone before his dwelling preparing- nets
for fishing. Seeing us he raised his heavy
eyebrows; his strange eyes gleamed, as
with a gratified feeling tjiat we had re
membered him and what he had told us
the evening before;
"Who gave me this twine to mend my
net with!" he said.'
"I, Father Sassa," replied Julie.

same kind as ours.
"The white strangers chased our fathers'
from their home. We are not negroes.
To escape from slavery the old Sassagari
embarked his family in his canoe; but he
would hot leave behind him these shells,
which bring luck to the fifliertriaa, and
kept afar the witchcrafts of the water.
The whites suspected some my fitery. They

when it speaks, Sassagari will reply. He
who sings in the shell the plaints of the
sea,- and who paints the sunrise on their
faces.- will make the stars of heaven sink
into their heart;"
So the Carib spoke: He was motion
less, his glance sweeping afar to the verge
of tlie horizon.
We silently left him, and gained our
cool hall before the burning noon made
it intolerable without.
But these early happy days were coming
to an end. We were about to leave this
pleasant paradise for new scenes:
We grew up. Otlr pareuti spoke of
sending Francis and me to France. When
Julie heard of tliis, she 6ighed we agi
tated. One evening my father came home
from the town, and said that passige had
been tak-.n lor us ou bonrd a vessel which
would sail in two weeks.
Jly poor sister, the news was terrible
to her, I think I see her now during
those days. She would sit for hours un
der a'great palin tree, looking at the deep
Once, when Francis stole up to her,
taking her hand, she said in tlie tender
est tones :
"My lily, what is it you see there at the
bottom of the sea?"
"I see," she replied "the white sail of a
ship which bears yon far nvrar -away.
The count consoled them both, and; pas
sing his baud over the golden curls of the
boy, said :
"You love Julie very much, then?"
"Yes, papa; and if I were never to see
her again 1 would drown myself."
Tlie day of departure came. We bade
adieu. Julie, pale as a ehccL; came to us
with her shells.
She gave tlie finest to Francis, and ta
king me by the hand, said :
"Jules, I give you this horrible old
shell, don't force t that I found it that
evening when Francis saved my life.
Keep it in memory oi your sister; ana ner
love for Francis.
Six years later, during" the winter of
1747-S, a young man completed a highly
successful course of studies at the Uni
versity of Paris, and entered aristocratic
life. . It was the Vicompto de St Croix.
e made our preparations to return to
Martinique. Between our departure and
the wedding there came an obstacle.
This obstacle was a revolution!
The freedom of the blacks was pro
claimed. The Count de St. Croix was
ruined, ne hoped to save his crop by
borrowing. The money w as obtained and
wasted in vain efforts.
Francis rose in dignity and energy
during this trial. "I will overcome this
disaster." he said. "I will not be crushed.
I will g"d to America; a few years of labor,
and we shaM be reunited, and Julie will

York. Not lona after his departure, his
father, the old Count, arrived in Fans.

some indemnity for his lost estates. Ev
ery effort was in vain. Uno morning ine
poor old Count tottered intc my room,
and casting himself upon the sofa, ex
"All is lost!" , . , .
In sudden alarm I started up to relieve
him, and that so suddenly as to overthrow
a heavy table. Owing to its concussion,
the portrait of Julie which hung on the
wall, fell to the" ground, and with it the
shell, which rested upon tfrS. tapper por
tion ofthe frame. As tnesueil ten it sep

rolled three white balls.

Indian,' and cast ourselves, shedding tears
of gratitude, iuto his arms.
"Father Sassa," said Francis, "you told
us the truth. We found the stars of heav
en in the shells of the sea."
Tho eyes of the chief shone with a
strange light "Who were kind to the
TBobr Indian? Who gave him wood for
his canoe, a knife for his fishing? Who
were good to him? For all that, children,
follow me !"
He placed his hand on a great smooth

He rolled away the stone. It covered
the entrance to a cave, in which we saw,
piled high, hundreds of shells containing
pearls. We stood bewildered at the sight
of such enormous wealth, and therf turned
to embrace the Carib. He had disap
peared. But afai off in the last rays of
the setting sun, vanishing in its purple
mist, we saw a dark canoe; paddled by

place, a. ul oilier trade notes on grain, &c :
A consiiriini-nt of sacked corn brought clown

Plattsmouth. Nebi, and consigned to Mexsre.
J. II. Teasiiale A Co., turned oiit so weil and re
munerative that the Duifee. left yesterday for
tlie same point to obtain 9.0W sacks of corn,
wliich, also throiiKh the energy and enterprise
of Messrs. Teasdalti & Co., will be brought to
ami sold ou this market. A la-rre amount of
grain is held ai points on the A.bmuri river,
which could easily be brought to this market
and pay handsomely for tlie uiidc rtakiu aside
Missouri River line of steamers tsiil carry at a
low enough rate to enable shipments to be made
to this point and pan out well for tiie interest
ed parties. Our wholcmle and ci'inmKMot!
bouses should take a hai.d in this trade ana
make some tftort to get it away from Chicago.
T:.at enterpri.;iijr city has er.joje'l a monopoly
of that rich region, but St. Louis ran ami should
compete with her and eventually wrest mst of
this trade from her. The .Mis. u;i liu-o! pack
ets stand ready to aid St. Louis merchants in
thi undertaking by carrying freight both ways
at the lowest rale possible, and rates that will
allow of our merchants compel ing with Chica

staunch boats in the trade, l he trade of the
Missouri river towns is e-i'eii to St. l.ojis: now
let tlieui go and g: ft. Every boat descending
Che river should be laden wit li grain and pro
ducc. X j? ale on the St louis market, and make
the return trip with a full load of dry goods,
