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. IIZSCELLAX&OUS. Sut LovcngocrVs Shirt.

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.
