All proudly on tho breeze—
That standard, ;too, Great Britain's pride,
The boast of England's tars —
Yet none could thrill my heart but thee.

Brazil's gay flag of gorgeous dyes;
Tho banner of old Spain; v
E'en Gullltvs banting as it flies,
Is not undimm'd by stain;
Their lustre has b.oeu sullied oft
At home, by deadly jars ;
But thy bright azure fields Bre pure,
My Country's Flag of Stars!
In some famed foreign ports I’ve seen
Tho flags of half tho world—
To celebrate a gala-day—
TUoir bunting all unfurl'd,
With, throbbing heart, I glanced my eyo
Along the tapering spars,
Until my gaze was fixed on thee,
My Country's Flag of Stars!
And. when thy stripes and azure field
First met my eager sight.
My bojom heaved, m3' heart it thrilled,
With feelings of delight.
1 hailed it as tho oyiK-suro
Of our Columbia’s tars;
Tho banner of the brave and free,
My Country’s Flag of Stars!
And where's heart possessing Lut
One spark of freedom'* zeal,
That would not, gazing on thy fold*,
A patriot'll spirit feel?
The veteran too, as ne looks down •

That would not hail tlieo with

‘Some nice old brandy,’ replied Henry.

then looked dowu upon the floor. There
was a cloud upon her fair brow, and it

The girl went out, and in a little while

was thirteen years of ago, and Charles
.eleven, and certainly those two parents
had rejason to bo proud of them. - The
boys kissed their mother, gave a happy
good morning to their father and then
went away to school.
‘ Cora/ said Mr. Beaburn, sometime af
ter the hoys had gone, ‘ what makes you
look so sopor ?”
‘ Sober/ repeated the wife, looking up.
‘ Yes. You have Ken sober and mute
lever since the grocer came/
i ‘Do you want me to tell you why V
1 ‘Of course I do/
* Well, Henry, I am sorry you bare had
] that spirit brought into tho house/
i * Pooh! What's the use of talking so,
Cora? You wouldn’t have me,
would you ?’ *
‘ Yes.’
‘ Why ?’ What do you-piean V
‘ I mean that I would cut clear front
the stuff now and forever.’
‘ But-—Cora—you aro wild. What
should we do at our dinner parties with
out wine ?’
‘ Bo as others it not.’
‘ But—mercy!—what would people say ?
Are you afraid I— but no— l Won’t ask
a foolish question.’
‘ Ask it Henry. Let 113 speak plainly
now that we have fairly commenced/
‘ Well, I was about to ask if you were,
afraid dint I should ever drink too much V
‘ That is not a fair question, Henry. I
was not thinking of that at all. Hut I
will answer it by ancj by
fixed appetite for it now ?’
‘ Of course not.’ ■
1 Then it would not cost you any effort
of will to abstain from its use.’ - ;
‘ Not a particle.'
‘ And you only have it in your house,
and serve it to your friends, and drink iti
yourself because it -is fashionable, or in'
other words, you do it because others do it.’
* I do it because,’ said Mr. Seaburn,
hesitating some in choice of language—
‘ because it would appear very odd and
niggardly, and very fanatical without it.’
This last was spoken emphatically.
‘ But,’ pursued Mrs. Seaburn, with the
calmness and assurance of one who feels
the sustaining influence of right,‘you
would not do what you were convinced
was wrong out of respect to any such con
siderations, would you V
‘ You know T would not, Cora. This
quest ion of temperance, I know, is a good
one in the abstract, and 1 am willing to
live up to it as I understand’it; but I am
no tec-to-tal-ler.’
‘ Henry,’ said his wife, with an earnest
look into his face, ‘ will you answer me a
few questions, and answer them honestly
and truly, without equivocation or eva
sion ?’ .
‘ Bless me ! how methodically, you put
it, Cora; but I will answer.’
‘ Then, first—Do you believe you or
yonr friends are in any way beuefitted by
thd drinking of intoxicating beverages at
your board ? That is, do you derive any
real benefit from it 1’
‘ No; I can’t say that we do.’ i
‘ Do you think the time has ever been,
since wo were married, when wo actually
needed wine in tho bouse, either -for our
health or comfort ?’ ■ . =*
Why, I think it has administered to
our comforts, Cora.’
‘Why the enjoyment of our guests.’ ,
‘‘ Ah ! but I am speaking of ourselves,
Henry—of you and me and our little fam
ily. Has it ever administered to our com
forts ?’
‘ No, I can’t say that it has/
‘ And if it tfas banished from our house
to-day, and forever, as a beverage, would
we suffer in consequence?’
‘Certainly. What would our friends — r
‘ Ah ! but stop ; I am only speaking of
my own affairs, as shut out from the
world by our bedside. I want all extra
neous considerations left out. Should we
as a family, suffer in our moral, physical,
social or domestic affairs in the total ab
stinence from this beverage ?’
‘No; I don’t know that wc should.’
‘Then, to you,, as a husband, and a :
father, as a man, is it of any earthly use ?’
‘And it would cost you no effort, so far
as you alone are concerned, to break clear
from the habit ?’
‘ Not a particle.’
‘ And now Henry,’ pursued the wife,
with increased earnestness, ‘ I haVe a few
more questions to ask. Do you think the
drinking of intoxicating beverages is an
evil in this epuntry ?’ .
‘ Why, as it is now going on, I certain-
ly do.’
* And isn’t it an evil in society ?’
‘Yes.’ ■
‘ Look over this city and tell me if it is
not a terrible evil!’
‘ A terrible evil grows out of the abuse
of it, Cora.’
{ And will you tell me what good grows
out of the use of it?’
‘ Beally, love, when you* come down to
this abstract point, you have the field.—
But people should govern their appetites.
All things may be abused.’ i
‘ Yes. But will you tell mo the uso—
the real good-—to be derived'from drink
ing wine and brandy V
‘ As I said before, it is a social custom,
and has its charms/ ‘
‘Ah .’there you have it, ;Hcnry. It
does have its charms as the deadly snake
is said to have,, and as* other vices have.
But I sec you arc in a hurry/
‘ It is time I was in the sto^re/
‘ I will detain you but a moipenl longer/
‘Henry. Just answer mou few mote
questions. How call to mind alj thej fam
ilies of your acquaintance ; thlnjc of all the.
domestic circles you have . known from
your schoolboy d*ys to'the present. Run
your thoughts through the varioushouiaa
' where you have been ihtimatc. Dq this,
‘ HowT
‘ Oh, in many ways.’
‘ Name one of them.’
and tell me if in any one insthnbe yon
ever knew a single joy to. be; planted by
the hearthstone by the wine ; cup ? Did
you ever know one item of good to flow to
a family from its use ?’
‘No; I cannot say that I ever did —not
as. yon moan.’ . *. , ■
‘ And now answer me again. Think of
those homes once more. Call toithemory
the playmates of your childhood,: think of
other homes,'-think,of-the firesides where,
all you have know|n them dwell,; and tell
me if you have seen any sorrow flow from
the wine cup. Have you seen any griefs
planted by the intoxicating bowl upon the
hearthstone I’
Henry'Seaburn did not answer, for
there passed before him such grim spectres
of sorrow and grief that shuddered at the
mental vision. He saw the youth cut
down in the hour' of promise.;; he saw
hearts broken ; he saw homes made deati
late ; he saw affection wither up and die;
and saw noble intellect stricken down !
Good Heavens ! what a sight he saw when
Jic unrolled the canvass of his memory.
‘ Henry,’ whispered the wife, moving
to his side, and winding one arm gently
around his ricck, ‘we have two boys They
are growing,to be men; they are noble,
generous and warm-hearted; they love
their home and honor their parents; they
arc here to form those characters, to re
ceive those impressions which shfill be the
basis- on which depends their future weal
or woe. Look at them ! Oh, dhink ol
them. Think of them doing battle in the
great struggle of life before then;. Shall
they carry out from their home one evil
influence? Shall they,’ in the time to
come, full by the wayside, cut down by the
demon of the cgp, and in their dying
hour curse this example whence they de
rived the appetite ? Oh, for our children
—for those two hoys—for thq memories
■we would have them cherish of their home
—for the good old age they may reap, let
us cast the thing out now and forever.’
Cora kissed her husband as ceased
speaking, and then he rose to i his feet—
but he made no reply.
‘ Henry, arc you offended ?’’ i
‘ No,’ tic said. Ho returned her kiss,
and without another word, W left his
house and went to his^storc.
How strangely did circumstances work
to keep the idea his wife'had given him,
alive in his mind. morning he
met a youth, the son of one of hia wealthy
friends, in a state of. wild intoxication ;
and during the afternoon ho bcatrd that
young Aaron G had died at sea.—
He know that Aaron had been sent iaway
from home, that he might be reclaimed..

After the bank had closed, and as Hen
ry Seaburn was thinking of going to hi is
dinner, he received a note through the
penny post. It was from a medical friend,
and contained a .request that he “would call
at the hospital oh his way homc. ! It'was
not much out of his way, and ha stopped
‘ Therc-is a man in one of ■ the lower
wards .who wishes do see you,? said the
doctor. !
‘ Does he know me ?’ asked Seaburn
‘ He says ho docs.’
‘ What is his name?’
‘He won’t tell us. He goes by the
name of Smith, but I am satisfied that
such is not his nameH He is in the last
stage of consumption and delirium. He
has lucid intervals, but they do not last
long. ..He has been here a He
was picked up in the street, and brought
here. Ho heard your name, ajod said he
kpew you.’
Mr. Seaburn went to the ropm where
the patient lay, and looked at him;surely
he never knew that man ! * Thete must be
some mistake,’ said be.
Tho invalid heard him, and Opened his
eyes— such blood-shot, sunken dyes !
“ Harry,” he whispered,' trying to lift
himself upon bis elbow, ‘ is Harry
Seuburn ?’ :
‘ That is my name.’
‘ And don’t you know me ?’ ;
‘ I am suro N I do not.’ And Harry
would have said that ho did not wish to,
only the man seemed so utterly;miserable
that he would not! wound bis feelings.
‘ Have you forgotten your old playmate
in boyhood; Harry— your friend in other
years—yourchmU in college?’ ;j
< WhatT grasped Seaburn, starting back
aghast, for a glimmer of the truth burst
upon him, ‘ this is not Aleo Lomberg 7’

returned the fellow, putting forth his
wasted skeleton hand, and smiling a quapt,
quivering, dying smile. ‘Apl

thought I drank too much. But lam

Henry Seaburn gazed into the horrible
face, and remembered that the owner had
been the son of wealthy parents; the idol
of a fond mother; the favorite at play and
at college ; a light of intellect and
ical beauty, and a noble, generous friend.
And now, alas!
* Alec, can I help you I’ \
‘ Yes,’ and the poor fellow started high
from his pillow, and something of the bid
light struggled in his eye. ‘ Pray for me,
Hal; pray for my soul; pray that I may
'go where my mother is. She could not
have done it had she lived. Oh, she was
a good mother, .Hal! Thank God, she
didn’t live to see this! Pray for me, pray,
pray. Let mo go to her ?’
As the wasted man sunt back* he fell
to weeping, and in a moment more one of
his paroxysms came on, and he began to
rave, he thought Henry wa ft his father,
and Lc Cursed the habit that had been fas
tened upon him lender that father’s influ

inquire after his friend, if he did not see /
‘ Poor fellow,’ said the physician, ‘he
never came out of that fit; he died in half
an hour after you went out!
It was dark when Henry Seaburn reach
ed his home. -
‘ You didn’t toll Bright where to put
those demijohns, Henry, said his wife.
She did not notice his face for the gas
was burning but dimly.
‘Ah I I forgot. Come down with me,
Cora, and we’ll find a place for them/
His wife followed him down in the base
ment, and one by one he took the demi
johns and carried them into the rear yard,
and there emptied their contents in the
sewer. Then he broke the vessels in pie
ces with his foot, and bade Bridget have
the dirt naan take the fragments atray in
the morning. Not a word had be spoken
to his wife all the time, nor did she speak
to him. He returned to the sitting room r
where his boys were at their books, and
took a seat upon one of the tctc-a-tctea.—-
He called his wife and children about
him, and then told the story of Alexander ■
‘ And now, my loved ones,’ he added,
laying his hands upon the heads of his
boys, ‘ I have made a solemn row, that
henceforth my children shall find no such
influence at thcirhomc. They nevershall
have occasion to curse the example of.
their father. IVhat say you, my boys,
will you join inle in the sacred pledge;?'
They joined him with a glad, gushing
willingness; for their hearts were full, and
their sympathies all turned, by a mother’s
careful love, to right. ■ ■.
‘ And you, Cora V
‘Yes! yes?’ she cried; * and may: the
holy lessons ot this hour never be forgot

mercy upon my boys. Let it be a light

And so shall they bless throughout life the

The neat thing to an Angbi, upon

tletnan walking over Knightsbridge, -on
Sunday, overheard the following conver
sation between a man and a woman, who
appeared to have returned from a.pleasure
trip into the country : Woman —“ Blow
me. Bill, how Ido feel, —I am as misera
ble, too, as a starved herring. • What a
miserable world is this! I wish I’d never
been.horh, that I do; and now that Yarn
born, I wish myself dead again.” Mao—-’
“Why, Bet, what’s the matter with you
now? What arc you grumbling about?”
Woman—" Why, don’t I tell yer I’m as
miserable as a rat ?" Man—“ Miserable,
indeed! Why, what on earth would you
have? You was drank on Monday, and
you was, drunk' again on Wednesday, and
I’m blessed if you haven’t had. pretty near
enough to-day. If that aint enough of
