EAST AND WEST.
Blithely be stepped along the way ;
The sea breeze swept across his breast ;
Hi face was turned towanl the west.
Where glowed tho tire well of tho day.
The purple rocks, like gems of earth,
Rose from the wet sand fresh and bright ;
The wavelets shone with sapphire lieht :
The reef was musical with mirth.
.His step was quick his heart was free,
His cheek tinged by the colored cloud ;
And, drunk with ioy, be sang aloud
A challenge to his destiny. -
"(!ome well, come ilk I care not I
Hither mv strong right hand can meet;
Come well, come ill, for both I greet
The good will live the evil die.
My heart is light, my arm is strong
I care not what the fates may give ;
Irt child and coward fear to live.
Ami tremble at the charge of wrong."
So sang he. And the sun was gone,
. The pile of color failed fast,
Tho night breeze rose and whistled past.
The stars came slowly one by one,
His ln-art Ix-at low ho turned him back ;
Dark loomed the rugged rocks before,
And all along the sad gray shore
. Itoaml loud the breakers, stern and black.
No more he sang, but sadly thought
Of lite and death, and sickness pale
Of how the stoutest arm may fail.
The truest heart may sometimes doubt.
Yes, fate some part is in thy hand !
The. prize not always crowns the brave!
The tide is turned, up rolls the wave;
We build our pride upon the sand.
Tho strength will go, the weakness come ;
- Tho yean with doubtful issue wait;
We know not what may be our fate ;
We know not where may bo our home."

It was ten o'clock. The stage drove
up from the depot. Almost every lady
experted..her husband on the train.
Manv ivbunff ladies expected their
sweethearts.' Neither the stage, the
driver, nor the horses were visible.
From force of habit the travelers felt
their way to the reception room. I got
mixed up with the crowd. Twenty
five married ladies, seven old maids,
and four young ladies commenced greet
ing the passengers in the darkness.
"My dear William ! why did you stay
so long?" exclaimed a sweet young
wife, and then she threw her arms
around my neck our lips met. I wasn't
going to be a darned fool. Far different.
Now, adearrsweet,linuid-eyed brunette
threw her arms wildly around me,
"O, Eugene, why did you not write
oftcner?" she sobbed,and then she sank
sweetly on my bosom. I said, "Weep
not Julia," and then I kissed hersweet
ly twenty-two times. It was delicious.
It made me think of my first wife and
my college days at Yale. A jonderous
matron now approachllreKS eecoWefe,

her arm and whispered, "0,Charles,did
you bring igy beautiful dog did you?"
"Madame, my name is not Charles,
and I hate dogs. I'd kill every

feet. A sweet, golden-liaired blonde
now took my . hand. ! She pressed it
gently, saying : "Dear Albert, I know
Ft is you, and I am so glad to see you!
You wont' dance with Lizzie Smith,
now, will you ? Now,do prom ise m e ! "
I said I wouldn't. Then she held her
cheek clowe to mine. It was hot with
love's young hope and pure, sweet af
fection. W e were very happy. None
but a wicked man would have brought
sadness to this sweet, pure young heart
full of confidence, warm with virgin
affection, and beautiful with splendid
girlishness. "Do you still love me, Al
bert?" she whispered. "Undoubtedly,"
I remarked. "How much, darling?"
"A heap.'VO, I am i too happy!" she
murmured, as she twisted her fingers
in my auburn hair! and held me in
sweet embrace. This sort 6f thing went
on for seventeen minutes, when C. Ice
land appeared in the distance with a
tallow candle. I quietly withdrew and
mingled unobserved in the crowd. As
the candle appeared, twenty-seven
Voung gentlemen Were seen shaking
nands with as many young ladies in
the different corners.- I have seldom
seen such and affecting scene. It was
a great disply of affection. . One mar
ried gentleman was holding the hands'
of two ladies. The hair of the ladies
was generally crimples, while the hair
of the young gentleman did not display
a parting place. I reflected "how kin
such things be, and overcome us like a
summer shower?" I consulted with
J. Billinjrs. He says they kan't. So I
resolved to leave the place. I came
back to Congress Hall and found the
young ladies and young gentlemen hav
ing a grand ball by candle light. Each
young lady held in her hands a penny
dip. They flew through the Lancers
likeghostsin "Macbeth." Eight streaks
of light made a terrible criss-cross, as
the dance went on. Wrhen the grand
chain came, the lights revolved like a
gigantic fourth of July ptn-wheel. It
was a great night for Saratoga. The
young people liked it. Some prefer
darkness rather than light,because their
ways are evil.

Yesterday three persons, charged

They were Tom Gilbert, Captain of the

Kelsey Cox, and Will. Gillem, who es

The soldiers also brought up a negro
boy named Dave Prewitt, who is
charged with. shooting and killing one
Joe Curry, on the night of the 3d of

were- sitting togetner in great want,
in Mississippi, whose names have since
become historical in the' annals of this
country. We refer to Itobt. J. Walker
and Doctor William M. Gwin, Duke
of Sonora. An altercation occurred be
tween them which, led to a challenge
from Mr. Wralker. ; Walker was a man
of remarkable diminutive size, while
the Doctor towered ; like a giant, with
the brawn and bone of a London porter.
Walker was bent on fighting ; but the
Doctor who was naturally a jovial and
kind-hearted soul, did not feel at all
aggrieved towards his adversary, j
Be that as it might, the Doctor ac
cepted the challenge, and chose the
Indian war-tomahaw as his weapon.
The terms were so arranged that on a
given day the combatants were to be
posted one hundred and fifty yards
apart, and, at a given signal, to rush
past each other, like knights in a tour
ney, flinging their tomahawks in their
course. , . t

abroad that he practiced every day in
a savannah, a few miles from the town
where both resided. Piqued with cli

be persuaded to visit the spot surrep

of his antagonist. Not so surreptiti
ously, however, that Dr. Gwin was not

upon his movements. .-'

He Finds His Wife Married Sells
Jor $L'0O and Departs.
: Thefollowihg story was related to us
a few days ago by a friend, who vouch
es for its truth : ,
John Wiley, a rough,brbad-shoulder
ed mountaineer, living in an adjoining
county to this, volunteered in the Con
federate Army in 18G2, leaving at home
a pretty young wife to mourn over his
absence. John was among the missinsr
at the battle of Spottsylvania court
house, and though the wife refused to
believe that he was dead,the war closed,
and the prisoners returned home, but
brought no tidings of John. The wife
was forced now to believe that he was
dead, and for a long time mourned for
him and refused to be comforted. At
last, however, a comforter appeared, in
the shape of a former sweetheart named
William,and in 1866,he and the widow
were married. They lived happy to
gether, and two little cherubs came, in
process of time, to bless their union.
The widow had almost forgotten
John, when about a month ago her
memories of him were rather unpleas
antly awakened. Sitting with her hus
band one evening in front of their
house, she saw a bronzedfaced, weather-worn
traveller approaching the
house, and when he came near enough
for his features to be distinguished, she
recognized him as her long lost hus
band, John Wiley! Here was a dilem
ma indeed. The doubly-wedded wife
did the only thing a woman could do
under the CHCumstahcesr-she feinted.
Husband No. 2 caught her in his arms,
when husband No. 1, knowing nothing
of the situation, very properly knock
ed him down for taking undue liber
ties with his wife. A serious struggle
might have ensued, had not the woman
recovered in 5 time to make a hurried
John. He was thun-
