POETRY.
Hopes ami FenrA.
Our hopes are like tljo wreaths of foam
That glitter on each shining wave,
When with a gushing sound they come,
The white nnd thirsty beach to lave.
The waters part, the ripples gleam
A moment on the silent shore,
And vanish, as the hopes that seem
A inomcDt bright, and are tin mor
Seeking for love, for fame, for power,
To the frail threads of life we cling,
For Jiore will cull a withered flower,
And tune a harp with broken string,
And hope will shed a glimmering ray
Of light on pleasure's ruined shrine,
For mouldering columns still look gay,
When sunbeams o'er them shine.
Though sovered be love's magic chain,
Still to it broken charms v e trust,
And hope to mend the links again,
M'hcn grief has eaten them with rust.
Fr.iil as the bubbles on the beach
That hope may be a transient beam,
But reft of joy, 'tis sweet to teach
The heart lo hush its grief and dream.
Our hopes are like the flowers that bloom
Upon the mountain's verdant side,
That mountain's heart a burning tomb,
Cleft by the lava's scorching tide.
They spring and flourish, fade and tlie,
Like human hopes as frail and fair,
While quenchless fires beneath them lie,
Like human passions hidden (here.
Our fears are like tho cloud that shed
Their gloom across a summer sky ;
When life Is fairest, some wild dread
Of grief is ever hovering nigh.
The gloom may pass the shadows fade,
And the sunlight only seem to reign,
But still there is a lingering shade,
A tear that clouds will come again.
Where the bright wells of gladness spring,
Hope will the youthful heart decoy.
But fear la hovering there, lo fling
A shadow o'er the path of joy.
A canker-worm within the fruit,
A aerpent In the linnet's nest,
A sentry ever grim and mute, ,
Is fear within the human breast.
A rainbow never spans the sky,
But some dark spirit of the storm,
With sable plume is hovering nigh,
To watch its soft and fairy form.
Hope never chants her angel aong, '
Or bids us rest beneath the wing,
But foar wi'h all his phantom throng
Is in the distance hoveling.
We seek the laurel wreath or fame,
And all her fickle favors trust,
To live perchance without a name,
And find ihe rhaplet turned to dust.
Life wears away, 'mid smiles and tears
The wedding yeal, the funeral toll ;
But though o'crshadowed still by fears,
Hoi'S is the sunlight of the aoul.

-l, or Teww.
The first ono I met was " Sut," (after
croirij the Iliwassee,) "weaving along"
111 Ins usual rambling, uncertain gait.
His uppeurance at once satisfied me that
something va3 wrong. He ha J been
sick, whipped in a free fight, or was just
out-growing one of his big drunks. J Jut
ujioh thU point I was soon enlightened.
" n by, fcut, what a wrong now ?
"Heaps wrong; durn my fckin cf I
hain't moot dead. Lite ofTctr that ar hoss.
George, on' take a horn, while I take two,
(bhaking that everlasting flabk of his at
me,) an' plant yerself on that or log, an'
I'll tell ye ef I ken, but it's most be yont
tellin'. I reckon I'm the darndest fool
out en Utaw, 'cept my dad, for he acted
hoss, an' 1 hain't dun that yet alters in
some trap that oudent kech a sheep. I'll
drown myself sinn djy, see if I donl, jisi
to Mop a family di-'persiiion to make d J
fools of themselves." .
' How is it, Sut, hara you been leat
playing cards, or driuking, which is it ?"
rsara pno; that cun t be did 111 the?e
parts; but seeiu' it's you George, I'll toll
you; bet I swar I'm 'shamed sick sor
ry, and and mad, I am.
" You know I boards with Bill Carr,
at his cabin on the mountain, an' pays
fur bich ea I gets when I hev money, an'
when I hevt nt eny, why h taUes one
third ov it ouion me in cussin' ; an' she,
that's his wife Belts, takes out t'other two
thirda with the buutin' btick, and the in
trust wi;h her lung, an' the iniruats m ire'n
the princip'l heap more. She's the cus
sedeit 'oman I ever beed eny how fur
jaw, brecdin', and pride. She can scold
a Mister onto a bull's face rite on tha rurl
in lwo ininuti. She otu breeds rv'ry-
thing on the ruver an' pnttrens arter
ev'ry fashun sho hears tell on, from bus
ails to briches. Oh ! sho's ono of 'em,
and sometimes she's two or three. Well,
yo see, I'd got sum home-mnde cotton
truck to mnke a new shut outen, and
coaxed IJctts tu mako it, and about the
time it wur dun, hero conies Lawyer
Johnson along an' axod fur breakfus I
wish it had pizened him, durn his hied,
an' I wonder it didn't, fur she cooks awful
mixens when sho trys. I'm pizen proof,
myself, (holding up his flask and pooping
through it,) ur I'd been dead long ago.
" Well, whilo ho wur a entin', sho spied
out that his shut was stiir an' miiy slick ;
so she nener rested till sho wormed it out
C'i him tlmt a preparation of Hour did it,
an' she got a few perticuiurs about the
pcrccedings tu, outen him by 'omnn's art
I don't know how bIio did it, perhaps
he does. Artcr ho left, sho sot in an'
biled a big pot ovo panto, high on to a
peck ove it, an' souzed in my shut an' let
it soak awhile ; then sho luck it in an'
ironed it out flat an' dry, an' sot it up on
its aidgo again tho cabin in tho sun.
Than it stood as still' as a dry hoss hide,
an' it rattled like a sheet ovo iron, it did.
It wur pasted tugether all ovor. When
I cum tu dinner, nuthin' wud du but I
must pui it on. Well, Belts an mo got
the thing open arter sum hard work, she
pulling at ono of tho tails an' mo at tulh
er, an' I got into it. Durn tho everlastin'
new fangled shut, I say. I felt like I'd
crawled inter an old bee gum and lilt full
of plants; bul it were like Lawyer
Johnson's, an' I Mud it liko n man, an'
went to work to build Belts a ash-hopper.
I worked powerful hard an' swot like
a hoss, an' when the chut got wet it quil
its hurtin'. Arter I got dun, I tuck about
four fingers ove red head, aa' crawled up
into the cabin loft tu take a snuse.
" Well, when I waked up, I thought I
was dead, or had the cholery, for all the
jints I cud muvo were my ankles, wrists
and knees ouan t even muvo my head.
an skaatiy wiiik my eyes the cussed
suut wur pasted fast onto mo all over,
from the pint ove the tails tu the pint ove
tho broad-ax collars over iny years. It sot
mo as clout as a poor cow d us her hide in
March. I souirm'd an strain'd till I trot
it sorter broke at the shoulders and elbows,
an' then I dun tho durndest fool tiling
ever did in these mountains. I shuffled
my britches off" an' tore lose frum my
hide ubout two inches ove the tail all
around, in much pain an' tribulation.
Oh ! but it did hurt. Then I tuck up a
plank outen tho loft, an' hung my fens
down thru the hole an' nailed the aidge
(.. i. :l . .! . r .1 is

before, an tho hind tail I nailed to the
plank what I set on. I onbuttoncd the
collar and ristbands, raised mv hands
way up abuv my head, shut my eyes, said
grace, an' jump: thru to tho groun floor.
ilere bnt ruminated sadly.
" George, I'm a d'trnder fool than ever
dad was, Hess, Hornets and all. I'll
drownd myself sum ove these days, see
ef I don't."
Well, go on, Sut, did this shirt come off?'
" I t-h-i-n-k i-t d-i-d. I
hearn a noise, sorter like tarin' a thingle
rull ove a house, all at oust, an felt like
rny puts an' bones wur ail that reached
the Mure. I staggered to my feet an'
tuck a luck up at the shut. Tho nails
had all hilt thnr holt, an' thar it wur
hangin' arms down, inside out, an' as
stiff as ever. It looked liko a map of
Mexico iist artA ono ove tho wurst bat
tles a patch of mv hide about tho size

of my har about the size ove a bird's
nest thar; then sum more skin; then
sum paste; then a littlo more har; then
a heap ove tkin ; then more har ; then
skin; on' so on all over that darned new
fangled, everlastin', infernal cuss of a
shut. It wur a picture to look at an' so
wur I. The hide, har, an' paste wur
about ekeally divided atween me an' it.

Specks she thinks I crawled intu tho

av skared her good, fur I it'll you it look

load ove fresh beef frum a Bhootiu match.
" Now, George, ef ever I ketch that
