The Gib Miest Day hath gleams of Light the darkest Ware hath Bright foam near it and twinkles through the cloudies night some solitary Star to cheer it. The gloomiest soul is not All gloom the Saddest heart is not All sadness and sweetly o or the darkest doom there shines some lingering beam of gladness. Despair is never quite despair nor life nor death the future closes and round the shadowy brow of care will Hope and fancy twine their bit of Romance. It is a trite hut it the same time True remark that the real incidents of life constantly occurring around us possess u for More romantic interest than the fanciful ones conceived in the teeming brain of the novelist. Of this the following a a of or True talc a told us in Brief by the Steward of the Pucket boat Louisiana Wil furnish an illustration a some ten years ago us our readers will remember there was what wus termed a a a rebellion in Canada Aud Ufler the a patriots were subdued some were summarily executed and a portion banished for a term of years to Australia. Most of these latter were men with families from which they were torn without mercy to expiate in n far Distant land by imprisonment and hard labor the crime of having failed in their attempts to rid Tho country of the evils of mis government. We think they acted very unwisely in proceeding to the extremities they did but this Point we Wal not atop to consider. With one of these expatriated men our tule has chiefly Todo. For seven or eight years he had borne the hardships of a lonely Captivity hopeless of Ever seeing friends or Home again when a general amnesty wus proclaimed by the British government in regard to 11, with one or two exceptions of those who Bud been concerned in the rebellion. Our hero was now at Liberty and his first thought was to seek his Home. But lie Hod no Means to pay his passage there and lie accordingly shipped on Board a whaling vessel which it the Etui of two years Inore landed him on his native Shore. A wife children und friends a filled his thoughts and he hastened on to his old residence in Canada. Everything remained As it Hud been friends and neighbors greeted him As he passed along but Bow his heart sunk within him to find the Homestead deserted and to learn Tomt his wife had been worried two years to another supposing the husband of her youth to be dead. She and her new found innate had left that part of the country and settled somewhere in Illinois. The poor mini Felt desolate indeed and he determined to Sec und if possible to reclaim his wife and children. After weary travel and Many inquiries be traced them to Knox county Illinois where they were comfortably settled in their now Home. There he presented himself a few Days since. The wife could not have been More surprised or pained to see an apparition from the grave for she had Long considered him As dead. The new husband too was rather disagreeable surprised to see before him a claimant for his wife. What should be done 7 the first husband was anxious to obtain the lady the second was disinclined to give her up looking upon his a a claim As Good. They were reasonable people All around. The original Cha Maut remained in the neighbourhood n couple of weeks during which time the matter was frankly talked Over. At last the rivals came to the very just and rational conclusion Tomt the lady was the proper person to make a final decision of the question and to her it was mutually agreed to refer it giving her time to consider it in All its bearings. What More perplexing position could a woman be placed in than this i Here were two men with almost equal claims upon her affections. One was the father of All her children but once the companion of her youth the other bound to her heart by Neur and sacred lies and by the Mutual love they bore an infant that had been Boru to them. She could not for a time decided what True hearted woman could ? a tumult of thoughts and emotions filled her heart alternately swaying her f rom Side to Side. Thus the conflict lasted for several Days during which time she was enabled to look clearly into her own heart and at last she was ready for a decision. Which should she Chouse but the Man around whom were twined the tendrils of a first and Strong affection to whom she and Given the first offering of her Henrt ? the Needle May vibrate Lor u time but it Points it lust with unfailing constancy to the never setting Star of the North and in like manner the heart of n True woman having in the wide universe hut one fitting mate will after All Vicissitudes turn lovingly to the sunny warmth of a a a first Only a disposition of the youngest bom must now be made and it wus mutually agreed by the two Ronen. That us it could not be deprived of a mothers care the first husband who Lri take it with the other child run to be restored to the father it some future time. The re United family made preparations to go to a new Home and so great was the interest excited in the neighbourhood by this singular Aluir that As Many is a Hundred und fifty persons from the neighbourhood were present to witness their departure. On saturday last they came up in Tho packet Louisiana on their Way to Michigan where they will take up their residence. We naturally sympathize with the first husband to whom wife and children Are restored hut who will not feel for the bereavement of the second 1�? Chicago chronicle. Kacon by we have a Large Mill dam. On the West Side of the breast of tiie darn stands Deacon 11. S residence. The Deacon is a very proper Man and has two very proper daughters. The deacons aversion to profanity has settled into a proverb with the surrounding denizens. He preaches against swearing on sunday and will not employ a by to any thing in heaven or on Earth is it is very wrong. One sunday night us or the Deacon and a held a few observations on his favorite theme he was sitting with his very interesting family around him to prepare them for the dark and silent watches of the not knowing when the a Man of woes would come to a certainty. All was silent save the impetuous watch full dashing its Crystal tide Down among the stones and rocks of the breast. Just now a a Knock came gently to the door a which was not heard by the inmates. If you Hud peeped out you might have perceived two i Oung Sparks studding awaiting for the a step in fathers in becoming impatient they Knock again and again and at length their Little Bone headed canes were brought into use. A hold Jim they re and True the a old Man devout a made his appearance at the doot with his night Cap on to ask the Nusu of this strange intrusion. Jim and Mosc had their Mouths fixed is if they were going to say beets upon Tho lips of the deacons daughters but at this and interview the scene was changed. I presume you could not Henr us for this dam roaring a stammered Mosc who was first awakened from his visions of Bliss. Do you come to insult me in my own House t begone sir you Young Rascal begone a and the Deacon became furious. No sir a put in Jim who Kenned the run of the tide a i presume you did not understand him. This dam roaring prevented you from hearing us the Deacon now became frantic with rage and seizing the sweeping Brush was about sweeping them from his place. At this juncture just in time to prevent Jim and Mose from getting heir crowns cracked the Fuir Matilda like Pocahontas threw herself Between her father and the Sparks saying father father they mean the roaring of the Damn Tho of yes but Why transpose their words to make an the old Man quieted Down it last and retired to rest and Jim and Mose with their clean shaven chins exacted several Peculiar sweets from the4 Young a tins a is a Reward for the perils of the of the times. Ladies fabric of the most Flimsy character still continue Tho Rnic and the ladies outward garments May aptly enough be regarded under head of trappings from Tho r adaptation to catch flies As Well As other frivolous articles.
