A SUMMER NICHT.
We sat together, you and 1.
That evening in the month of dune.
Beneath tbe porch; the deep blue sky
Held the sharp crescent of the moon.
8o mildly shone her silvery light
On the smooth lawn it seemed to sleep.
Sweet odors filled the Summer night
From fragrant gardens ankle dfep.
The honey-suckle, wet with dew.
Scattered her perfume on the air; i
Soft gales from spicy woodlands blew.
And toyed each moment with yooi hair.
And .now and then the drowsy herd,
From meadow pastures far and near.
Lowed dreamily ; the startled bird
Twittered the while; and sweet, clear.
The murmur of the cool, dark stream.
That woo’d with sung the heart of night:
And through the vines, a truant beam
Of moonlight kissed your neck «o white.
I held your render hand—we talked
About the future and the past;
Or sometimes down the path we walked
Beneath the lindens;-till at last.
The moon sank in the violet case.
Gilding the thin clouds a* she went
And on the lawn the shades increased
Till all the doubtful dusk was Mem.
When suddenly upi.n the night.
Near where the moon had sunk to rest.
Kindled a strange mysterious light
Behind the ragged mountains crest.
And up the glittering arch of blue.
And far across the billowy plain.
As through the air the meteor flew.
A ball of fire with streaming mane.
How wildly gleamed your startled eye,
How tight your fingers clasped my band.
As slowly in the western sky
’ it faded, leaving all the laud.
To darkness and the silent stars.
That night. Upon my restless bed
I tossed, iu dreams of cruel wars
And fields of battle strewn with dead.
LIZZIE DALE’S EXPERIMENT.
“If ever I marry,” said Bertha Drake,
and Bertha pitted her little foot upon the
floor most expressively as she spoke—“if
ever I marry,” she repeated, “ My husband
will do just as I wish him to do.”
“Perhaps he will,” returned Lizzie
Dale, with a quiet smile, “because you
would not of course, wish him to do any
thing to which he was really opposed.”
“I am not sure about that, Lizzie.
These men need to be governed some, 1
assure you, and if 1 am ever married my
husband will do as I tell him.”
“If you are ever married'?” repeated
Lizzie Dale, “ Why you are to be mar
ried very soon Bertha ”
“ Yes, 1 suppose 1 am ; but not until
I am assured that Mr. Henry' Wilder will
be a dutiful husband.”
“ I think there will be no danger about
that, for Henry has the name of being a
very kind, generous, noble young man.”
“ I know all that,” said Bertha, with
another very expressive pat of her foot;
“ but those qualities he gives for the
benoflt of all. He must have some
virtues for me alone.”
“ And what more can you expect *”
asked Lizzie, with a touch' of seriousness
in her manner?
\ il I tell you what,” returned Bertha,
with real determination. “In the first
place he shall leave off smoking. 0,1 do so
abominate that filthy tobacco. He must
promise me this. Then there are his
club meetings ; he goes there once a week,
ami spends half His lime there ; his “ Lit
erary Club,” he calls it, hut’s only for the
pui|K)Be of smoking tobacco, and telling
stories, that he goes there. He must put
a stop to that, too. In short, he wBl go
where I go.”
Lizzie Dale smiled.
I’m in earnest, Lizzie,” continued
Bertha, “ and let me advise you to try
the same experiment. You, I suppose,
will be married as soon as myself. Now,
Mr. Sumner Dean smokes, and goes to
bis club, too ; and, it I’m nut much mis
taken, he will want to go to the theatre
once in a while without you. You’d bet
ter put your foot down before you are

married.” And again Bertha's foot came
down to give strength to her meaning.
For some moments 1 izzie Dale re
mained silent, Mie was a loving voting
girl, with a soft countenance, light brown
hair, and large lustrous, blue eyes. Ma
did not look as though she eonld have
faced a very heavy difficulty, but gradu
ally there stole over her countenance a
sort of determined expression, and, with
a meaning look, she said :
“Bertha, I shall try the experiment.”
“ Good!” exclaimed Bertha, clapping
her hands. “O, how we will teach
But little more was said by the Iwo
girls. Bertha Drake rattled away in her
usual happy, careless style, hut Lizzie was
thoughtful, and ere long they seperated.
It was but a few evenings later that
Sumner Dean called to see Lizzie. He
came to arrange for the marriage.
“Stop,” said Lizzie, after some of the
perliminaries had been arranged. She
looked sober and stern—a most strange
look for her. “ Stop,” she said, “ there
are a few things that I have never
spoken to you about.”
Ah!” uttered Sumner, with an ex
pression of surprise.
“Yes,” returned Lizzie, with slight
tremor ; “ you know I dislike the smell
“ I was not aware of it, Lizzie. You
have never mentioned it.”
“ Because it was not in my place ; but
now that we are to be married the case
is altered. You must promise that you
will leave off smoking.”
Now, Lizzie Dale was what the
world called rich, while young Dean hud
only an opening profession, with a bare
competency. Perhaps the young man
thought of this.
“ What else is there he at length
” You belong to one of the city clubs.”
" Yes ”
‘‘ 'J heir meetings continue till nearly
“ And you .-moke there, and tell sto-
“ !-omet lines.”
•* Then you must promise me that you
will go to the club no more after we are
married: and you must promise me, too,
not to go to the theatre without I go.
“Are you in earnest, now. Lizzie?”
Ihe young man spoke with a tone and
look ot deep concern.
Certainly, 1 am,” returned Lizzie
“ Lizzie, 1 tear you do not rightly un
derstand me. i have sought you lor my
wife because I believed you to he a pure
minded, loving virtuous girl. I love you
with my whole soul, and I can give you a
whole generous heart, an honest name,
and an untarnished honor. If you be

to make you happy: but if light whims

moment, and if pledges of future conduct

neither of us be happy; for in no way
can you sooner injure a husband than to
distrust him. _ All reasonable things I
will do to make you happy, but I cannot

quired. Do not think me obstinate, but-
I should lose sight of my own just pride

Sumner expected to have seen a dark
looking frown upon Lizzie’s face, but he
was surprised to see in the stead thereof
a bright, joyous, beaming, and half-roguish"
“1 havfe tried my experiment,” she
cried, as she laid a hand upon her lover's
shoulder, and I am happy in my success.
I knew you loved your social club meet
ings, for I have often heard you speak of
the intellectual treats you there received ;
and whatever may be the real character
of smoking, I knew’ it was a favorite
habit with you. If you had promised to
give these lip to please me I should have
thought you had not that manly indepen
dence that belongs to a noble hearted
man. 1 should fear that for the sake of
conciliating me, you would deceive me.
No, no Sumner, seek just such enjoyments

are right, and fear not that I shall find
Sumner Dean was a proud happy man,
and, at that moment, he took a silent
pledge —but one deep in his heart—that
he would never do a thing that would
make Lizzie unhappy.
Lizzie and Bertha had been married
nearly a year. One pleasant winter eve
ning Sumner Dean and his wife called at
the dwelling of Henry Wilder. They
entered and found Bertha all alone..
“ Where is Henry asked Lizzie, as
she laid off her things.
He has gone to his club,” returned
Bertha, in a low tone.
“ Then you remain here, and I will go
and bring him home, - ’ said Mr. Dean,
speaking to his wife. “Now that we
have come we must have his company.!’

playful lone. " I thought you were go

j Bertha's eyes filled with tears, as she
'said; “ He did promise me, but he has
deceived me. And just smell the filthy
i tobacco smoke in this room, too. I wish
I bad never trusted him.”
“ Did.you ever trust him ?” asked Liz
zie. in a low meaning lone; “fully trust to
his manly honor and love ?”
W by, what do you mean, Lizzie?”
•• I mean to ask you if you ever trusted
Henry as a loving wife should trust a
loud husband. Did you ever give him
to know that you had the fullest confi
dence in his honor ?”
“ Certainly, I have,” returned Bertha
“ I hen.” said Lizzie, “ Henry has also
deceived me, lor I always thought him a
really kind hearted man.”
" Hut you see how- kind he is uttered
the afflicted wife “He promised me, be
fort' we were roamed, that he would cut
the club, and quit smoking ”
“Did Henry make these promises
“ He mode them.”
“ Ah, that may be ; but they were
forced, were (hey not?”
Bertha was silent.
“ Then, when he fell back after your
marriage, you were petulant, ami perhaps
accused him of deceiving you Y Let me
tell you the experiment I tried before I was'
married—you remember 1 promised to try
one.” And Lizzie related what the
reader already knows. ‘‘And ever since
my marriage I have pursued that course.
My husband knows I place entire confi
dence in him seeking only to make him
happy: the consequence is. he anticipates mt

times drops in to the club room, but he
never remains late. T his evening he
asked me il I had any other emgagemenl

you, but would put it off if he wished to
go to his club. But he would not think
of the club for a moment when I had an
engagement for him like this. Ah. Ber

At that moment the (wo husbands en
tered the apartment. Henry’ Wilder
looked at his wife and found her in tears.
A oilier curl half gathered about his lips,
but the presence of his friends aroused
him to a sense of propriety, and he asked:
• Are you net well. Bertha ?” The fail
wife returned her husbands look, and pla
cing her arms around his neck she im
printed a trembling kiss upon bis lips.—

Propriety. —Propriety is to a woman
what the great Koman critic says action is
to an orator ; it is the first, the second,
and the third requisite. A woman may
be knowing, active and amusing; but
without propriety she cannot be amiable.
Propriety is the centre in which all the
lines of duty and agreeableness meet. It
is to character, what proportion is to figure,
and frame to attitude. It does not depend
on any perfection, but it is the result of
It shows itself by a regular, orderly,
undeviating course; arid never starts from
its sober orbit into any splendid eccentrici
ties, for it would be ashamed of such praise
as it might extort by any deviations from
its proper path. It renounces all commen
dation but what is characteristic; and 1
would make it the criterion of true taste,
right principle anil genuine feeling in a
woman, whether she be less touched with
all flattery of exaggerated and rotriuntic
panegyric, than with that beautiful picture
of elegant propriety which Milton draws
of our first mother, whom he deliniates,
“ Those thousand decencies which daily flow
From all her words and actions.”
A jolly fellow had an office next
door to a doctor's- One day, an elderly
gentlemen of the old fogy school blun
dered into the wrong shop.
“Is the doctor in?”
“ Don’t live here,” said the lawyer who
was in full scribble over his documents.
“Oh! I thought this was his office?”
“Pray sir, can you tell me has the
doctor many patients ?”
“The old gentleman told the story in
the vicinity,' and the doctor threatened
the lawyer with a libel suit.

An Bushman in Trouble. —During
the draft in the Fourteenth Ward, Phila
lelphia, a few days ago, an incident occur
red that gave rise to much merriment. In
the crowd there stood a pale-faced Irish
man with his hands crossed and arms behind
bis back. He gazed intently as each name
was drawn from, the wheel of destiny. Hi
bad not been heard to speak a word to
my body. Presently he appeared to be
ipenned upon by some unseen galvan'n
oattery. During his spasm he exclaimed
in an F sham tone; “ Wherl it round!
wherl it round! rouse if will ye!” shouted
the man. He was evidently full of dread
‘•What’s the matter with you?” said
the Provost Marshal.
“Oh, be jabers, turn it around a dozen
of limes, for that man you drawed last, is
my next door neighbor!”
At this point, the universal laugh come
Life’s Happiest Period —Kingsley
gives his evidence on this disputed point.
He thus declares:
“ There is no pleasure that I have ex
perienced like a child's mid-summer holi
day—the lime, 1 mean, when two or three
of us used to go away up the brook, and
take our dinners, with us, come home
at night tired, dirty, happy, scratched be
yond recognition, with a greasy nosegay,
three little trout, and one shoe, the other
having been used for d boat, till it had
gone down with all hands out of sound
ings. How poor our Derby days, our
Greenwich dinners, our evening parties,
where there are plenty of nice girls, after
that! Depend upon if, a man never ex
periences such pleasures or grief after
fourteen as he does before, unless, in
some cases, in bis first love-making,, when

O" A writer beautifully remarks that a
man’s mother is the representative of his
Maker. Misfortune and mere crime set
no barriers between her and son. While
Ids mother lives, a man has one friend on
earth who will not desert him when he i«
needy. Her affection flows from a pure,
fountain, and ceases only at the ocean of
patriotic writer who is of the opin
ion that ladies of the present day would
make good soldiers, because the dtess they
wear by day they might make a good tent
of at night
tSt “ I am astonished, my dear young
lady, at your sentiments; you make me
start.” “Well, sir. I have been wanting
you to start for the last half hour.”
tat If it be difficult to rule thine anger it
is wise to prevent it; avoid, therefore, all
occasions of falling into wrath, or guard
thyself against them whenever they occur.
*j* When we record our angry feelings
let it be on the snow, that the first beam
of sunshine may obliterate them forever.

you please, but only one woman.
EDITORS AND PROPRIETOR.
Producing a SißsmTunt.—Editors,
like other shrewd men, must live with
their eyes and ears open. A good stoty
is told of one who started a paper in
a Western town.
The town was infested' by gamblers,
whose presence was a source of annoyance
to the citizens, who told the editor, if he
did not come oat against him they would
not take the paper. He replied that he
would give them a “ smasher” the next
day. f?ure, enough his next issue con
tained the promised “smasher,” and ob
the. following morning the redoubtable
editor, witn scissors in band, was, seated
in his sanctum, when in walked a large
man with a club in his hand, who de
manded to know if the editor was inf
“ No, sir,” was the reply; “ho has
stepped out. Take a seat and read the
paper— he will return in a minute.”
Down sat the indignant man of cards,
crossed his legs, and commenced reading a
paper. In the meantime the editor quietly
vampoosed, mid at the landing be met an
other man with a cudgel in his hand, who
asked if the editor was in.
“Yes. sir,’* was the prompt x response;

The latter, on entering the room, with
a furious oath, commenced a violent as
sault upon the former, which was resisted
with equal ferocity. The fight continued
till both rolled to the foot of the stairs,
and pounded each other to their hearts

protest against the bombanlment of Chalet
ton has led to the publication of the fol
lowing historical parallel:
In 1812 Marshall Geard, commanding
the French, bombarded Antwerp with
twenty-inch mortar shells, against which
Baron Chasse, commanding the defences,
entered the following protest:
“ In the name of humanity, Christi
anity and the good burghers of Antwerp,
I protest against the atrocity of employing
bomb-shells of the unexampled diameter of
twenty-four inches! 'ihe largest bomb
shells known to civilized war—these
seldom used, and scarcely sanctioned by
Christianity—have a diameter of thirteen
inches. I announce to you that if yon
tire any more of these, monstrous twenty
four inch missiles, I shall at once sur
render the city, entering my protest
against ypujn the name of humanity, and
appealing to God, my government, and
the Christian world to deny you the least
