But do not forget to Call at. Sweet Friend and sister of my heart though fates dicing Waves to tween is Roll the Star of hop Cju Reno thou Worth and Art my dream of life the vision of mar a ambitions fevered dream to to is Over yet still i Muse As in a happier Day thou Shine Sec on my path of life no More yet still to thee i consecrate my Lay. I knew of Ono perchance to a Heo unknown but thou More Blest can step in for such Asho a tear of pity shed if thou alone Aud spare for him a sigh of sympathy. For him no father paused to Bloss his child a the child of poverty and guilt and shame no Happy Mother at her infant smiled a they cannot smile who Bear a blighted name. Too Early he was taught a bitter truth a for quickly comes such knowledge e in unsought a spectral Shade time haunted All his youth. Aud Over his life its wierd enchantment wrought. Unble st unloved of How his spirit yearned for one to whom he might his Griefs confide the Young heart struggled and it partly Learned to live and bears supported by its Pride. Once when the festive Hall with mirth and song was vocal and Delight was wild and High timid he stole amid the glittering throng and wondering gazed around with Wistful Eye. And one he saw Replete with every Charm All else forgot he gazed upon that face a until a menial rudely seized Liis pushed him aside and bade him from the Placo. With sinking heart he silent shrank away a till gently lifted by a hand unknown a moment nestling on her he Lay those eyes of Beauty beaming on Bis own. She gently kissed that Pulc and childish brow and softly whispered Quot poor unfortunate a a twos but a simple act and yet of How its memory soothed Long years of wrong and hate. That Lovely form he never saw again /. Those Radiant eyes no More upon him shone yet still he cherished the remembrance vain in All the Post that vision smiled alone. Youth came. A wanderer from his Early Home. He sought to win himself a name ambition led his eager Steps to roam resolved to try the devious path of Fame. He loved. A twos not the pure and gentle Flamo when favouring Fate befriends but like the whirlwind Over his heart it came before whose rage Tho trembling Forest bends. Insatiate Pride can tempt Himez in from her to scenes where Hopes of future glory Rise his dreams arc broken by the messenger that bids him haste to Seo her Ere she Dies. A Quot with frantic Speed he hurries on and on amid the storm and darkness of the night and Ere the Light has waked the Early Dawn the Well remembered cottage greets Liis sight. Is it a dream ? he hears no More the storm a before him stands arrayed in living we Etc the shadowy outlines of a Radiant form. Resplendent in a flood of Crystal Light. Confused he saw not whence the radiance Shono nor knew or How or when the vision passed a Xis gone to stands amid the gloom alone loud swells raging shrieks Tho blast. The lights Are dim the voice of grief is hushed and Low and solemn Rise the words of prayer a in trembling haste into the chamber rushed the youth and Sank besides the dying there. Faintly she whispered a thou Art Here at last Coine near me Edwin nearer nearer still the tide of life to me is ebbing fast and Over my heart i Feci a deadly chill. Farewell on Earth in nay do not weep for me we part but we shall meet again, said j a a my spirit Ever round thy path shall be a she cease the living bends him Over the dead. Resistless grief How fearful is thy Power it is not age that dims or time that Sears the sorrow of an hour can Furrow on the brow the Chango of years. By slow degrees the wildness of his grief sunk to the sullen brooch nos of despair that seemed to Hope or seek for no Relief and yet refused with Manly heart to Bear. And time consoled the wound it could not heal and though it could not teach him to forget a taught him at least his sorrow to conceal and banish outward shadows of regret. Years passed in sullen brokenness of heart a in self deceiving Hope Relief he sought from one who in his Griefs could Bear no part nor could forgive his hours of Moody thought. He fated beings a destiny unjust a that to a heart where sorrow never sur ceased a gentle spirit should its keeping Trust a and both were wretched to perhaps the least. Deeply to err was his and to atone self torture was Hie direct punishment More racking than to inquisition known fiercer than human tyrant could invent. And yet he was not wholly prone to ill All that was Beautiful his spirit loved. Nor could the Clouds of evil chill the glorious dreams which his Young heart had moved. And there was one who could that spirit guide and from its fitful moods his heart withdraw to loved to linger her Side a. Her smile his life her lightest word his Law. And she remorseless of the wreck she made Forth from its shrine his worshipped idol Tore to had not loved hut trusted was betrayed compelled to hate and peace was his no More. Awaking As from sleep he burst the spell who cast aside Tho record and the pen fled from the quiet haunts once Well and plunged into the crowd of men. A again too Giddy Hirn whirled to joined Tho mad Preuit of a sordid self ? in vain the dreamer had delayed too Long the steel was fixed too deeply in Tho heart lie cords that bound the captive were too Strong o to thus quickly rudely torn a Cloud of gloom his pathway overhung and Over his heart its deepening shadows cast like spectres of Tho dead around him Clung the thronging memories of a bitter past. Wearied of Earth and sick and desolate the Boon of life to him no pleasure gave to longed for death and Blest the hand of Fate that offered peace the quiet of the grave. Lebanon a. Wednesday july 15, 1857. Prepared for the advertiser Hon. William Strong. It is a source of pleasure to the writer of the following sketch to dwell on the character and career of one who has contributed More than his just share of Good example to society whose integrity Industry and ability Render him eminently deserving of the respect and Confidence of his fellow citizens and whose important services to the nation at Large reflect unfading Lustre upon the Fame of his adopted state. William Strong who now is Ono of the nominees of the democratic party for the supreme judgeship of Pennsylvania was born in Somers Connecticut on the 6th of May 1808. His father a congregational clergymen of influence and ability at an Early age sent him abroad into the Best schools and academies which new England then afforded. In 1824, As a result of his previous application to his studies he entered the freshman cd re is of Yale College continuing. There for the regular term of four years he had become eminent for his gentlemanly deportment for an untiring Devotion to his studies and for the originality and philosophic tendency of Liis mind elements of character which have not a Little conspired to Advance him to the exalted position he now holds in the ranks of the democratic party of Pennsylvania. After graduating among those who bore off the highest honors of their renowned Alma mater or. Strong like Many students of indigent circumstances engaged in the profession of teaching at the Scarfie Lime devoting eight hours a Day to the study of the Law a 1 Bor which alone would have Beca too arduous for an Ordinary mind but which seemed to be Only the Retreat on of his. At the end of three years he found his earnings sufficient to meet his College expenses and to enable him to finish his Legal education. He now repaired to new Haven entered the celebrated Law school there and during the Short space of six months had made such rapid Progress by his Industry and Diligence that he was admitted to practice in the several courts of Connecticut. Spon after his admission to the bar. Or. Strong was prostrated by a prolonged and severe spell of sickness which came near terminating his life leaving him considerably broken Down and under heavy pecuniary embarrassments. After his recovery he determined to go to Philadelphia where upon motion of Charles Chauncey esq., whose Friendship he had already gained he was admitted to practice in the City and county courts. But Philadelphia was not to be his future Home. He was advised to go to Berks county famous Over the country for huge democratic majorities which has since become his permanent Home and where his Sterling qualities have won for Kim a Large Circle of friends and his close attention to business has secured to him a lucrative practice and an ample Fortune. Or. Strong a commencement in Reading was not unattended with difficulties. Born Down by a heavy debt and almost penniless not a Friend or an acquaintance in the whole county entirely ignorant of Pennsylvania practice and unable to speak or comprehend a single word of the language usually spoken by a major part of the Community he applied himself energetically to the great work before Hnidj and before the end of two years had surmounted ail these difficulties and found himself in Tho enjoyment of a fair practice. It is to examples like this to which the Young beginner can look with Hope of Success rather than to those erratic specimens of biography which Grace the literature of the Day to Challenge our wonder rather than stir imitation.,. Or Strong is a Democrat of. Fiji jeffersonian school eminently conserva live and practicable in his Seishi intents a a warm supporter of the Constitution and the Union and a fearless and determined antagonist of the isms of the age. In his congressional career which met the Wafon approval of his constituents he exhibited rare qualities As a legislator. His speeches in defence of the mexican War and in favor of the creation of a Board of adjudication of government claims with a View to prevent any further Galphin izing of the Public Treasury a master pieces of logic and the on aided to effectually put , for Mexico which was then prevalent and which would tarnish the administration of Jas. K. Polk while the other supported the dignity of the government by advocating measures to protect the honest and neglected creditor against the cupidity of robbers of the government. A the writer regrets that the want of space prevents him from noticing Bis other speeches some of which possess Peculiar interest As throwing much Light on questions involving considerable sectional agitation. He will therefore merely add that his subject is ready pungent and argumentative As a debater possessing a vast store of Legal learning which is Ever at his command a coolness of disposition and. Temper which gives him a Happy pre Eminence in exciting discussions his private and social character beyond reproach the manners and address of a polished gentleman he is esteemed by ail loved by All who Are fortunate enough to make his acquaintance. Or. Strong is one of the most rising men in the stale and if elected to the High position for which he has been placed in nomination by the democracy he will be an additional ornament to the supreme court of Pennsylvania. His profound Legal learning eminently qualify him for a seat on the supreme Bench. The democracy of Lebanon will throw her. Mite in his favor with pleasure and in Berks we bespeak for him a majority equally As great As that Given him in the fall of 48, upon the event of his re election to Congress. D a Snake tale. Says the lawyer very near approach reason in their Cun nigh _ a a. A a a i go thru Ete Stettin the study of serpents Down in Arl Gansas where i spent the most of last year. I done to know Why but i was constantly watching them i new situations and. Surrounding therewith novel expedients. Of All kinds i experimented most with rattlesnakes and copperheads. A one afternoon i seated myself on a Little know to smoke and read for i always had a Book or newspaper with me a and had been enjoying myself for some time when i espied a Copperhead making for a Hoie within ten feet of where i sat. Of course i threw Down my Book and Segar arid proceeded to try. A new Experiment. As soon As i stirred the Rascal made a Rush for the Hole but i caught his Tail As he got nearly in and jerked him some Twenty feet backward. He threw himself into a Coil in no time and waited for me to pitch in. Butl concluded to let him try his Hole again. After awhile he started for it stopping when i stirred to Coil himself up but As i kept pretty quiet he recovered Confidence and a gain went Ini again i jerked him out. No sooner did he hit the ground than he made a grand Rush for the Hole in a straight line for my legs Fco but that did not work for i got out Ottic Way and gave him another flirt a this time he Jay still awhile appearing to reflect on the course to retaken. After getting his head a Little Way in boarding Sci Ooi. anxiety of parents to secure the rapid Progress of their children while at school has led to the adoption in Many seminaries of a a a forcing process altogether beyond Tho capacity of a majority of the pupils and believed to be very injurious to their physical but whatever May be thought of the severe tasks of the school room during the secular week we Are quite sure that All reasonable persons will agree with us that an Extension of the same Rule to the religious services of the Sabbath is not Only without excuse but opposed to every established principle of judicious culture. A Friend has sent to one of the new York papers the following account of the sunday regulations at a school where a Young girl from that City was placed. No wonder that her health gave Way sunday regulations for a girls Board in school called Young ladies Seminary in a certain town n the ban state. Rise at half past 5 of clock breakfast a then prayers of half an hours from 9 to 10 to attend a prayer meeting at 10 of clock to Church until 12 of cock a dinner at half past 12 of clock to Church again from 1 to 3 of clock from 3 to 6 of clock learn Bible lessons Ana remember the texts of the two sermons so As to be Able to repeat them besides committing to memory another text called voluntary. Then Tea and while at the Tea table the texts above mentioned to be recited. After Tea to the Chapel of the school for Bible class instruction which including prayers lasts until 9 of clock. Quot from d to half past 9 of clock three chapters in he Bible to be read by each Pupil before going to Bod. The above Are the regulations of the Day of rest. What the herculean labors of the week ave May be imagined from the above. No wonder the Young victim of such a system broke Down after a few months trial and was taken Home where relieved from a a work work work till the brain Bogan to swim work work work till the eyes were heavy and dim a she again became the Bright cheerful healthy girl of sixteen Summers. Mending lately witnessed the Annua operation of mending roads in the country we Are in a a a fish fed to protest against the whole miserable system a system adopted in Early times and in some measure necessary in the first Settleman of a new country but utterly incompatil4e with the idea that we Are a progressive people because in the matter of Road making there is no Progress visible. We saw men at a Cark last week digging Black muck out of the ditch where a Road passed a swampy place and piling it up in the Eart Way to Iii ruts and level the surface. This is worse than wasted Labory it is a waste of a valuable manure without a single Iota of Benefit to the Road. It never will compact into a solid track. If wet it will Wash into and Down the Brook if dry it will turn to dust and blow away. One Load of gravel would be Worth Mote than the slow and easy muck i Gers would put on the Road in a week. In another place for a dozen rods in length the Road menders had piled up a sort of Winrow of sods slowed from a grass plat upon one Side of the track. These when by the travel were expected to fill a dishing cavity where the same sort of material probably had been put a dozen times before and As often turned to paste and washed Down Tho Hill. In a dozen places of a half mile Long Road up and Down a Hill the was cd Down Earth of former a endings was shovelled from its lodging places in the hollow Center of the track or used to form miniature dams to turn the Rainwater off through the Stone Walls into 1 the Fields. Next year i his same dirt can be shovelled lower Down and applied again in the same senseless useless Way. A few hours of breaking Stone or Quot carting gravel would do More to repair a the Road than a week of shovelling sods and Loam and. Quot in.

He lbs tirely discards All science ignores All experience and Wil 1 up Ftp while mending his roads in never mending his ways. We say nothing of laying out new roads because in that there is one object aimed at that is generally accomplished the Fps a straight line with-"liwnvprnrr1 of a a or Obsta cles. Or if. This is not aimed the necessity of a crooked line is a purpose for me to grab it. I did so and quicker than a Flash he Drew his head out and came within about a Quarter of an Inch of striking me in the face. However i jerked him quite a distance and resolved to look out the next time. Well he tried the same game again but it work i was too Quick for him. This time he Lay in a Coil half an hour without stirring. At last however he tried it once More. He advanced to within five feet very slowly coiled again and then the Rascal got the Start of me by one of the cutest things you never heard of.
