enjoyed my ride. The moon and stars were very bright, causing the majestic pines to cast such mystic sombre shade. The unbroken stillness, save by the carriage wheels and an occasional remark from some one of our party. O! there is so much wild, solemn grandeur, in this dim deep forest. I have often felt weary and solitary in crowds but never in the forest. I passionately love nature whether the green plain, lofty mountain, gentle rivulet or foaming cataract, all alike are beautiful. The birds {illegible]ing their sweet songs, the soft breeze whispering among the trees, every plant and leaf seems to have a noise and they all unite in one harmonious song of praise to the "Great Giver" of every good and perfect Gift.
