As Darby taw the letting ilia
He twang hit scythe and home he ran,
Drank off bit nog of beer and laid
My work it done, I'll go to bed."
Tow work U done !" quoth JBstrwi Joan,
Your work it done 't your constant tone,
B tt haplest woman ne'er can tay
lUr work tt done till break of day;
And if the goet to bed at all,
The touso'dri will amakt and wcit.
"First In the morulng though w feel
Like wretched drunkards when they reel.
Nay, feel tuch pains in limbs and head
At would connnt you men to bed
Tho cows we milch, the milk we strain,
Then hasten to the house again ;
Which, when displayed by mornlng't light
We find Is In a dismal plight.
"With aching head we now essay
To put It in a birttcr way i
We ply the brush and wield the broom
And make the beds and air the room,
We put the house to rights ; and then
We get the breakfast for the mtn j '
1-oag ere Hit done, with yelping cries
And bils'.llng hea ls the children rite,
They must bs dress'd and dosed with rue
And this the busy wife must do.
"Trembling with weakness, toll and pain
We now resume our work again,
But then there Is not wood enough,
And what there Is la hateful stuff,
All rotten, wet and smoky, too,
And so we know not what to do.
The bread's to bike, the meat s to fry,
And when we're tired enough to die,
The angry men rush in and say
Must we be slarved to deati to-day !' "
At this old Durby scratched his head
And fust retreated to bis bed.
Next morning ero bright Thocbus rose
Old Jonn began her tale of woes ;
Then Darby cried, to end tho strife
"Be yi the man, I'll be the wife I
Take yon the scythe and mow, while I
Will all your fancied needs supply."
"Agreed," says Joan, "give mo my stent"
80 Darby did, and ut she went.
Sole monarch now, he seized the broom
And whirled the dirt about the room
, The sweeping done, ho scarce knew bow,
He hied to milk the brlmlle cow ;
But btlndlo crossly switched hor tall
In master's eyes, and kicked Iho pail ;
And while they smarted with tho pain
lie vowed he'd never milk again.
Now looking round in tad amaze
He saw his cottage in a blaze ;
For as he careless brushed the room
In awkward haste he fired the broom ;
He quenched the flamo and sorely vexed,
Trcparcd to get the breakfast next ;
But, oh 1 he know not wlw,t to do,
The bread was spent, and hultcr too:
With hands bedaubed In paste and Dour
Old Darby labored full an hour,
But, hapless wight! he could not make
His dough take shape of loaf nor cake.
Just while tho dooi wide open stood,
In rushed the tow in quest of food,
And dashing forward with her snout
Oer-turned the churn the cream ran out ;
As Darby turned the swine to beat
The slippery cream betrayed his feet,
Ho caught the bread Ireugh In his fall
And down came baker, trough and all.
The children wakened with the clatter,
Start up And whin 'la, what's the matter!'
OM Jowlcr barked and 1 ahby mewed,
And luckiest Darby bawled aloud

Miguel Miramon :
Bror tae Exrcniioa.
Tho ilolnv nf tliirtv-four davs which
kent our neople so long in dfoubt and
aroused so much excitement is thus ac
counted for. The first courier that
reached San Luis on tho morning of
May 19, bearing the news or the cap
ture, returned here only on the 22d,
and the Emperor was at once notified
that he must appear before court mar
tini. He protested in writing, de
manding to be tried by tho assembly
of notables who had called him to the
The trial was postponed, and a mes
sage sent to the President, with the
letter of protest, and the documents
that had been captured. Juarczs an
swer was received on May 30th. It
was a refusal of the demand, grounded
on this incontestable fact, that the
ascinhlv of notables had not been con-
heard approaching, and Captain Gon
rales entered tlie chapel witnthe band
ages in his hand to cover the prisoners'
eyes. Miramon quietly allowed him
to cover his eyes, but Mejia reiuseu,
and as the captain was about to take
measures to overcome his resistance,
the bislion uttered somethiug to the
Indian vhx-f, who at once became sub
missive. But the Emperor, advancing,
declared that he would not allow his
eves to be bandasred. After a few
moments of hesitation, Gonzales salu
