I loved her with the truest love
Tli.it ever human bosom knew,
M. in's Inhumanity to woman
Was never half so true.
For Oh, she was the sweetest flower
Thai ever prared nu American glen,
And proudly did I own her power,
For she was artless then.
She left her home among the hills,
And in the world bo grew
A worldly, flaunting thing of pride,
Unsteady and untrue,
Cay robes nud jewels deck her now,
She seeks the gaze of men,
And is no more the (lower I loved,
For k!ic. was artless then.

It was nn notutun oveninef. The dead
leaved were falling nliuut tliu gardi.-n, and
all was Htill save the noisu of tho Hood
lapping (hp son-wood on tho shore. Two
persons wore walking hoiioath tho old
trees in the garden. One was a yoitnfr
man, in whom was exhibited somewhat of
the inien of a sailor, thoup;h scarce twenty
cummers hnd broadened his shoulders, and
though a foreign sun had browned his
cheek, yet h wus "full of lusty life."
Upon his ann leaned a lovely, laughing
creature," just bursting-into" glorious WO'
manhood ; her eye eparkled with the fires
of wit and mischief 5 she seemed one who
could laugh at every disappointment, and
by whom to be beloved was bliss. Silver
tutiod words were dropping from her rosy
lips. She gaily reproved him of the
broad shoulders nt her side.
"Do you sail so spon then? I low
naughty, Rupert.. I shall bu getting jeal
ous of Mistress Ocean. You have scarce
ly arrired, and now you are anxious to
go. ' Mayhap, some pretty one of the lux
uriant South ealls you from your cold
maiden of the North. Ha! methinks
that brown cheek waxes a little brighter
at the accusation. ' O, you naughty,
naughty boy ! Remain a few days lon
ger and attend our picnic. I shall be
alone without my manly Rupert. Come,
say you will."
"Were it possible, Clara, I would, but
1 must sail. I should have been, a way
three dayj ago, but for those superstitious
fellows who have got an idea that the ves
sel is haunted. And now they will not
tall without I stay to-night in the fore
cnatle and unravel tlie mystery for them
If I succeed in shaming them, we are lo
sail to-mormw. The whole village is
astir with their foolish stories."
"You jou't believe 114 ghosts, then
Nor does Clara, I presume."
"I' believe in ghost, the evil spirits
which haunt tho vessel of Rupert Lyons
-(Jood night, Clara." -.And Rupert
walked towards tho wharf.

' Perhaps that tie was Clara Sea, perhaps

now, when in port, sent all my leisure
hours nt their pleasant homo ; tlvro was
Uuport's riwnti till, nnd Rupert's dipper,!
and his w liiiiig-ili'sk, and his rille, and
I was pasMoimtely fond of the tea, and
being M urce out of my teens, the actne of
my nmbitiiiii was to make shorter slays
and quicker voyages than any o'her VPs- j
sel ; and now that I had a hlwiro in the
business, pi ivtile interest supplied In urn
bit imi what it miujit be losing of youthful
enthusiasm. I'pon the whole, 1 am afraid
I was but a sorry lover, and my coldness
and neglect were sufficient incentives to
awaken the witty sarcasms of the pretty
Clara, which were always joined by the
jovial laugh of old Mr. Sea.
According to the statements of the
crew, the brig had been haunted for sev
eral nights previous to the completing of
her load, by nocturnal visits ; nnd those
still continued lo be 'kept up. One had
seen a small, whitish figure jump from
the wharf, hop quickly across the deck
nnd leap into the water; another had
seen two figures paving quickly around
the Miod on the wharf, nnd all had heard
loud reports at midnight, as of the explo
sion of a gun upon the deck. The com
bination of these strange events had so
terrified the superstitious sailors, that
many of them refused to sail until I
should convitii e thern by other means
lhan words that they were laboring under
a delusion. And now, when three dnys
were gone, and their lively imaginations
were enlarging everything tenfold, 1 de
termined to watch one night and weigh
anchor on the morrow ; nnd for thnt pur
pose, bit the evening alluded to, nfrer
taking a hasty leave of Clara, I proceed
ed in the direction of ihe vessel. The
long wharf was deserted by all the craft,
aiid not a spar nrose above the wharf save
those of our little brig, which lay moored
at the further end. ' Two small schooners
had just moved into the 'channel, and
were awaiting a more favorable wind.
The night was growing rather dark, but
disturbed only by soft zephyrs which
sighed softly in the rigging. Having ar
rived nt the outer block, and before going
on board, I made a review of the place.
Near the 1ow of the vessel, and opening
m the other direction, was a shed ori
storehouse, 'erected on the wharf, for con-
venience in loading and unloading. I'n -
terhio- and casting a searchino- glance
around the interior! satisfied myself that
one was there concealed. iJarrels
and boxes were piled against its walls.
In this corner wa heaped a lot of largo
turnips, 111 thai were arranged oars, ana
spare yards, and oyster-tongs, and iu tho Uesome and tedious animal to kin ; tiuru
centre were several heavy anchors and ty. he meat is white, easily detected;
two or three superannuated, heavy guns, fourthly,'" At this htage of tho de-
Leaving this and stopping on board, I
found the men ia a feverish state of ex-
I endeavored to shame them out f)f
their fears by laughing at what I len.ied , wat -pe ious, and Itot we mignt, wnn
their folly, upon which they promised that j "ti' haritabienes.s suppose that he him-
if I watched in the forecastle, whore they
doemed the most danger was to leen -
countereil, and if I cmed expinia the my? -
teridus visitation to their satisfaction, they
would sail the next day. Taking wilh
me two of the mo.-t timid, and senling
the re: t to the cabin, I went below, and
stretching myself on a sea chest, wa.i and re-produced in New York ia one,

Kiuse, 1 uueileu my iwo men ujhjii no

After searching everywhere, and put -
ting my ear down to listen, until com-
jdetely tired out, I wrajped myelf up in
a foresail and awaited in curious anxiety,
Remaining half an hour without Buy
signs of repetition, again went below
aud prejiared to sleep. 1 had barely
time to get comfortably stretched, when,
j as T ha 1 j 1 -t Is trnn to ti.ise, a ni -o, loud
er, heavier and more terrible than any
preceding one, brought my timid com
panions trembling to my side ; but, unlike
tho former, it did not cxlwl beyond the
deck, no rumbling overhead, no splash of
water was heard, it ended as if something
hud been 1 i n:. 1 1 od to atoms where it fell ;
then followed tho saiuo gentle, lulling
sound of tho waler upon the vessel's prow,
the same gentl'- breeze was heard moan
ing in the t igging, und the dread silence
of the forecastle was broken only by the
loud heurt-beats of my superstitious and
I crawled noiselessly from below, and
hearing a blight mitling in the direction
of the shed, I passed over tho bow and
moved boftly lo listen. On arriving nt
tho opening in front, I looked cautiously
in, and what was my surprise to sec a
figure approach from the further corner,
with something held in what appeared to
be au outstretched arm. It moved slowly
and guardedly towards the spot where I
stood concealed by a large box. Quick
as lightning the truth flushed across my
mind. I closely scrutinized the object.
It was held by a small, goiW hand,
which was now near my face, nnd lo, it
was a huge turnip! The figure placed
itself in an altitude as if to throw it wilh
more than ordinary strength, when I
stepped forward and there fell into my
arms the form of Clara Sea. Another
slight report might have been heard, and
the ghost would trouble us no more. I
wailed till the day of the picnic, and the
one following and another, nnd nnelher,
until the old man began to go oftencr
than usual 011 tlie wharf, and then saiied
out of iort, perhaps not so enthusiastic a
sailor, but a more devoted lover. Clara's
artifice, if it did not frighten us into giv
ing up tho voyage, hastened a marriage
Apropos of sausage meat, I lately heard
