him how it could be done. "Well, sir," said the
man. "inn must say something nr do something to
which the multitude would like to listen. Com

of this fact inspired the artists with a desire to i. o

The Devil'• mad and. I am glad—
He's lost the man he thought be had,
Whip the Devil round a stump,
Give Lim a kick at every jump !
Mr FLOCIL—About half the ecclesiastical world
have devoted time that might have been spent tied
vintage, in splitting shingle*, to prove to you the
existeuce of an ugly rascal whom they call a Devil,
and to warn you against his machinations and devi
ces; while they maul with both hands pointing him,
out to you, like a Corporation lantern, bong out over
a dat.gerous gullet' bole.
My hearers, in the beginning was made Heaven

precise period when the cuateuts of 'a fresh lard
Rouse-egsramexinvierted into ae unhatched gosling,
sinless woflrst break through the "Melt. According
to the character Oren of this Mr. Satan by many
of my cotemporarie*, he is an exceedingly vicious
customer, combining the kick-tip behind activeness
of the kicks**, with the prowling propensities of the
wharf rat, while his breath is said to be more odo
rous than a dozen brimstone match factories iu full
operation. We are told, moreover, that• lie is ma
nipresent, and that while he is whispering deviltry
in the ear of some poor fellow_ at the North Pole,
the is also inciting a citizen of Ballyalouggathery to
crack his' wife's skull with a peat shovel; and at
he sa me time on the opposite 'ids of the channel,
is urging a b'ingry Dutchman to purloin a quantity ,
of newly made sour-krout from.a cook shop window.!
He is said to be fond of the fair-sex also, Wihth is:
about the only good trait his character contains, andi
vet he frequently-brings them down where sorrow
reigns eternal, acid all is gloomy as a black tom cat!
In a dark garret. He
.is restless and vagabond ink
his habits, and as uneasy as a porcupine with ai
chronic diarrlicet, so that it seems you are all requir-,
ed to watch his motions, as the school boy dodgesi
the ferule .f his schoolmistress. Now my dear hear-i
ere, all this may be true, it really is of little import'
of us, whether it be so or not, for we certainly are
as much our own Titters, as is a runaway monkey:
and Beelzebub can Do more control us against our
own will, than a lassie gander can dance a inesour-i
basin the ice. If you find this individual whisper
ing damnation in your ears, all you have to do is to
hit hiui a square toel kick upon the posteriori, andi
with characteristic cowardice, he'll make himself as
scarce as water in a leaky bucket! My brethren;
the devil consorts not with the just; his influence,
rolls off the good-man's heat, like water from
cabbage leaf. To him. Satanic con'act is no

four little ehihlren dependant upon her labor. Grief
and privations, to which she has not grown accus
tomed, have inspireil her strength ; but she must
stand at the wash-tub, or her little ones - starve.—
Her neat room has lost, one by one, its reliitmof bet
ter days; her last bedstead has been turned into
bread. "I couldn't help it," she said, "the children .
must be fed, and provisions are so high that ill the
little ones can earn goes no way." I found hr the
other day surreunded by an assortment of iewly
ironed, snow white garment., the %vic's artiiles of
a lady's wardrobe, of the most refined textures and
styles -indeed, I never saw under-clothes so laden
with ruffles, laces and embroidering,. I thought
all this work a good sign, and tdld her so. M. lift
ed her head from the intricacy of plaits led edgings,
with which she was busy, to answer Me. - " Yes,
to be sure; I'm glad Ware the washing, but their
there's so much trimming on the things they get a
great deal of time to get up.." remarked that this
need not concern her, supposin ' she was paid pro
portionately ; and then I learn d that the lady had
stipulated to pay one-third leas hen the established
price for what she calls the plain things, and
sixth less for the moreelaborat'. "I told her," M.
continued, " what--was the amid charge, but she said
'she never gave more, and t et plenty of women
would be glad to do it for the s roe." "But did you
tell her of-these hungry Wee . ys , and of your great
necessity!" "She knows it 11—but half a loaf is
better than none, and I was elfraid of making her
angry, s.nd losing the work altogether. And she's
the elevates% dressed lady—she must be very rich."
"Well, these shirts yonder, yiar get your full price
for them!'' "No, they belong to the two gentle
men i 1 t..... Hotel. But they *ill only pay me five

much more than a quarter of what a Broadway ar:

a nursing infant. The poor babe lies from morning

Mrs. always take something off, and if I should
ray anything they would only take the work awiy,

"I don't think the ladies mean to be unkind," poor
N. reasons, "but they do:i't think. .Only the other
day, after agreeinz with me that I shliAl make her

she would like some trimmings down the front, and

for extra work."
Aid so it is al nost continually. In washing,
sewing. house-cleaning and whatever other employ
ment there may be to which poor desolate women
are driven for a subsistence, the very necessities of
the class are, unthinkingly, made an argument fur
oppre.ising them. We pay the one or two who
coin in our way less than the rightful price of their
labor, because there are so many whose absolute
destitution would make them thankful to &Litte
work for still less. Fur our Insurits we economise
out of their utter want. Oh, Christian lady, nursed
in superfluity, would not something more, rather
than an iota less than the just equivalent, be the
righteous measure! Yowdepriciate the competition
in trade which makes the starving prices of the shirt
sewers, cap-makers, umbrella- . stitchers, fie., as you
well may, but have you never thought that in under
paying your poor employee you are guilty of a wrong
the same in kind, if not so great in degree? “What

Something that Should have been a Man.
"There goes something that. should have been s

The poor wretch was just- leaving a low grog
shop. A tall form with a massive great chest a no
ble brow, with a shod of frizzled grey hair—eyes,
deep, dark and lusttons noce—now, still deep, but
sepulchral, and burning like smouldering urea upon

something that should have been a man.
But once to trace his career.

A :ovely boy towards whom all eyes arts turned;
his face bright with enthusiasm, his brew curved
with intellect—wending his way to the little school
and there winning prizes—perhaps silver medals.--
So in the play ground, the king among his fellows:

frothy pearls that fleck its surface.
A young man—how the words leap to paper.
