BLOOMSBURGr, PAjEKIDAY, JANUARY 5, 1872.
Tlio Itllot Hot.
It had plcasod God to form poor Ned
A thing of Idiot mind,
Yet to tho poor unreaa'nlng boy,
God had not been unkind.
Old Sarah loved hsr helpltu child,
Whom helplessness made dean
And ho was everything toiler,
Who know no hope or fear.
She knew his wants, she understood
I'Jich half articulate call,
For he was everything to her,
And sho to htm was all.
Audio for many a year they lived,
Nor know no wish besides
But ago'nt last on Sarah came,
And she fell sick and died.
Ho tried In vain to woken her,
Ho called her o'er and o'erj
They told him she was dead I
The words to him no Import bore.
They closed her eyes nnd shrouded her,
While hostood wond'rlng by,
And when they bore her lohcr grave,
Ho followod silently.
They laid her In tho narrow houoc,
They snng the fun'rul stave j
And when tho f un'ral train dispersed
He llngorcd by that grave.
Tho rabble boys that used tojsor
Whene'er they saw poor Ned,
Now stood and watched him by tho gravo,
And not n word they said,
They camo and went and came again,
Till night at last camo on I
Yet ho still lingered by tho gravo
Till every one had gone,
And when ho found hioi6elf nlono
Ho swift removed the clay,
Then raised the coflln up lu hasto,
And boro 11 swift nway.
Ho bore It to his mother's cot,
And laid It on tho floor,
Aud with the oagoruess of Joy
Ho barred tho cottage door.
Then out ho took his motliei'd corpse,
And plnccd It In a chair j.
And soon ho heaped tho hearth,
And made thoklndllng flro with care.
Ho had put his mother in unit chair,
Aud lu its wonted place,
And then he blow tho tire, which shone.
Reflected In her face.
And pausing now, her hand would feel,
And then her faco behold ;
"Why. mother, do yon look so palo,
Aud why aro you so cold ?
It had pleased God from the poor wretch
His only friend to coll ;
Yet God was kind to him, nnd soon
In death, restored him all.

Whito eand left thcro by tho receding
sea-waves, as they crept softly and in

tho morning sunshine, or dashing with
resistless fury, when hunted by tho
sweeping hurricane, up, up, till tiny
Inahed themselves into snowy foam on
tlio rocky nrolocMonrf TiWl.i f!ro
which stood, when" tho water was at
low tide, a milo nnd a half from shore.
Upon tho top of this point, known to
tlio villugcrj by tlio nitinoof Eaglo Crng,
stood a cottago, a vcritablo littlo nest,
in falry-liUo proportions, around which
a garden bloomed aud blossomed liko a
paradise in a desert.
"Whero shall I build a little cago to
hold you till I como back?" asked
brown and resolute John Danforth, the
sailor, as ho looked on tho bright faco
of tho uowly-mado Mrs. Danforth.with
all a lover's fondness shining in his
honest face and fearless eyes, transform
ing tho hard lint s of his weather-bronzed
faco into posltlvo tenderness.
"At tho Eaglo Crag," answered Rob
itia Danforth, usually known among
her acquaintances by tho pet namoof
"In that bleak place I'1 aid Johu, in
his astonishment. "Why, birdie, you
would tile of homesickness in a week."
'"'Oh Jbhn! please," coaxed tho littlo
woman, who practical and housewifely
to tho last t!t-i(e, hid beneath Italia
vein of romance, none tho less strong
for being hidden "In my lonely life
before you found me, John, n silly littlo
thing asl am'' hero tho lustrous eyes
grew brighter "beforo you, with your
experience, and wisdom, and noblo
manliness, took mo to bo your foolish
littlo wlfo, and actually stooped to fall
in lovo with me, a mere Fchool girl, I
used to long so for u homo, dear. Next
to tho longing for a father and mother
and n sister to lovo and caro for mo,
this ouo longing for it homo was tho
strongest ; and after I taw you, John"
hero n bright flush stained tho clear
brow of her sunburnt cheek "I used
to think if tho longing should ever
grow to bo a reality, and tho littlo homo
whoso pleturo grew brighter every
timol musrd upon it, should over bo
mlno ours, I mean" (with another
little blush) "how happy, how very
happy I should bo. I saw tho pluco whero
it should stand, this littlo homo of ours
on a liiL'h point overlooking tho ocean,
whero wo could watch tho whlto ships
sail along tho glassy water or rldo fear
lessly upon tho bounding waves. I taw
tho roses and Jasmino twino tenderly
their wealth of bloom around tho littlo
porch, aud I have heard a thousand
times tho hum of bees nnd songs of
biids, that darted lu nnd out among
tho vines and blossoms."
"Vines anil blossoms I'' burst forth
honest John, In hlsaiiiazouiout; "littlo
woman, tiro you crazy? I should liko
to seo tht viuo or blossom that would
flourish within half n leagud of Eaglo
Crag, tho most arid, barren vasto con
ceivable." "Oh John I is IhU true?" was nil sho
said; but tho smothering sigh attested
tho depth of her disappointment.
John mado no reply ; but stimulated
by tho sound of that half smothering
sigh, and thogllmpsoof glistening team
twinkling hastily from tho curling,
brown lashes, fell to studying ways anil
means j nnd tho result was tho pretty
cottage, tet on tho topmost point of
Eaglo Crag, while vines und llowers
flourished and growlu tho artificial soil
spread over tho small inclosuro which
defined tho boundary of his purchase.
Perched up thoro, liko a mountain
bird's iiest, ouo could see, from tho
porch, which was on tho north side,
