BT BHET HABTK.
Upon Wasatch's peaks of snow
Ight holds illimitable sway
Where but a single hour ago
O'er crags and chasms, high and low.
Resplendent shone the day. -
From out the sky no star ray shines
Upon the awful solitude:
While moaning through the tossing pines.
Like some unquiet spirit's brood,
The winds sweep to and fro,
And seem In saddened mood
To breathe a wall of wo.
At first they only sighed,
But now they moan and sob;
And since the eventide
Their maddened pulses throb
In quicker, faster flow,
As their fleeting footsteps glide
O'er the cold expanse of snow.
And all the upper air
Is filled with drifting clouds,
While fiends that revel there
Are weaving shifting shrouds;
Tossing in endless whirl.
They reel In goblin mirth.
And then the shrouds they hurt
On tempest's wings to earth.
'Twas 'leven o'clock near Bridgets Gap,
In a station that swayed in the tempest's sweep,
Where a lightning jerker enjoyed his nap,
When a call from the Canon broke his sleep.
And he caught the words from tbe subtle clicks,
"Send Bluley down here with 46.rt
Soon Blaley movnted his Iron steed.
And the fires of the furnace glowed again,
As the pondrous monster devoured its feed,
And rolled from the side track on to tbe main.
Out on the night where the snow-flakes fell,
Out where the blasts of the tempests roar,
BInley shouted his friend 'farewell!"
As he opened the throttle-valve one notch more.
Then over the winding track he sped.
Where tbe pathway with chasms and craes was
The glare of h'.s great light rleamed ahead.
And the snow like a bride's veil gleamed behind.
And soon the sound of the clanking steel
Was drowned In the echos from hill to hill;
He felt the engine sway and reel,
But the throttle went one notch further stilL
A nd down the grade like a courser fleet,
PlungiHg through mountains of drifted snow,
The engine ploughs through the crusts of sleet.
And hurls a thousand feet below
Tbe ponderous masses that block its way;
Throws them far to the left and right,
Into the black, oblivious night.
To leach tbe Canons by break of day.
And now old BInley feels the thrill
That a soldier feels when he meets his foe;
He opens the throttle-valve wider still,
And his furnace burns with a fiercer glow,
As the piston flashes In faster stroke;
But firm as a roci stands the engineer.
And in his honest old heart of oak
There beats not the slightest pulse of fear.
But soon the engine is running slower,
Though its pathway lies on a level grade;
And then a tremor comes stealing o'er
Binley's hand on throttle laid.
There's a slacking up of the driving wheel,
While tbe engine struggles with human will,
Then slowly ceases the clank of steel,
And the panting monster Is standing still.
Thicker and faster tbe drifting snow
Throws around its victim its winding sheet.
And quenches the glare of the bead-light's glow,
As BInley mutters, "I give up beat" t.
Next morning a snow-plow forced Its way
To tbe spot where the burled engine lay;
They hewed a path through tne frozen crust,
And then was the ghastly story told:
There sat BInley beside his trust,
With his hand on the throttle-valve stiff and cold.

Raleigh Observer, 7th.
Yesterday an old country darkey
came in town astride a mule and saw a
dusky damsel in a store door. She
spoke to him, but he did not return the
compliment. She informed him that
she was the sister of one of his town
friends. Her assertion was corroborat
ed by another darkey. The Country
negro then, in the presence of a crowd
offered to bet the mule he was riding
that the woman was not the sister of
his friend, as she represented herself.
She took the bet, and the mule by the
bridle at the same time, and led the
animal .and his rider off to the shop of
her brother. - There she proved herself
to be what she claimed, the sister of -the
country darkey's city friend, 'and won
the mule. A compromise was finally
effected by the countryman giving
her a bladder of snuff and string of fish
in lieu of the mule.
