The tale is inviting and desirable, exquisitely embellished by an artist whose sketches show richness of fancy, and refinement of sentiment.The story has a clever and fine a young hero, Owen Connor, an Irish peasant, a mountain farmer, possessing the most generous sense of honor, and the most delicate moral feeling, and a sense of the beautiful that might ennoble any station.

The story is full of beauty and truth.Excerpt:“Grief has been known to change the hair to grey in a single night- the announcement of a sudden misfortune has palsied the hand that held the ill-omened letter- but I question if the hours that are passed before the commission of a great crime, planned and meditated beforehand, do not work more fearful devastation on the human heart, than all the sorrows that ever crushed humanity. Ere night came, Owen Connor seemed to have grown years older.

In the tortured doublings of his harassed mind he appeared to have spent almost a lifetime since the sun last rose. He had passed in review before him each phase of his former existence, from childhood—free, careless, and happy childhood—to days of boyish sport and revelry- then came the period of his first manhood, with its new ambitions and hopes.

He thought of these, and how, amid the humble circumstances of his lowly fortune, he was happy.”
