A PRETTY LYRIC
We'll part no more, Oh, rover 1
Let gladness (look thy brow,
Our hearts are joined forever
By each ruligirus vow.
Misfortune's clouds have vahishod,
That caused our bosomi paiu ,
And every care ii banished,
No more to coine again.
Hope's star Is brightly burning
Within its brilliant dome,
And tolls of joy returning
To cheer our rural home.
It shines through gloom to gladden,
Disponing grief and care,
For sorrow ne'er can saddon
While it remaineth there.
'Mid flowery vales we'll waudor,
And by the laughing stream,
Our bosoms growing fondor
'Nouth love'i encnanting beam.
In youdor cot reposing
Iu plenty, tido by side,
Each morn fresh joys disclosing,
Through life we'll gently glide.
Htisttlhiuous.

'1 think not; good-humored noise,
your own children's too, would hardly
produce so alarming results. Indeed, I
think that Edward is right; you need
something to stir you from this lethargy.
I am sure ho means it kindly for you, as
woll ns lor the children. They ought not
to be left too much with Lucille. You
Know 1 am no friend to Fnench nurses
but I dislike and distrust this one as much'
as your husband does."
" Bui he has such a disagreeable way of
saying these things ; my spirit alwavs re
bels. Lucille was highly recommended
and always seemed to behave well enough,
and 1 don't see why I am 10 give her up
to humor theditliko or my husband mere
ly : not that I card so much for her cither,
but I will not be dictated to in this cold
way."
" Because it it is too hard upon your
pride. O Carrie, when will you lay this
proud spirit down at the foot of tho cross ?
IOU have not learnnil t.lmt. (Imra
it of greatness, in the nobleness in the
virtues of patience nnd submission ; the
highest, truest greatness, because in the
exercise of these wo are more Jiko our Di
vine Exemplar. Is it less ennobling to
perform all the duties of your lot with
cheerful patience than to lie here and
fret against them, leaving all undone?
A life of self-will is but a life of sin, and
therefore must be a life of misery. You
admire a patient, gentle spirit in others ;
jou adtniro one who exhibits groat pow
ers of endurance, who triumphs over the
petty, but constantly recurring obstacles
in her way, bringing out of tho deep, cool
well of her heart, sweetness to life for
herself and others; disarming unkind
ncss by her patient love, her gentlo for
bearance." " This is a fancy picture, Mary ; I can
not make it real. "
" liavo you then not discovered whose
fair image was in my mindf Was it not
like our mother. "
" Yep, indeed, like her ; dear blessed
mother, liutmy trials are so different.
ller's were open to the eyes of the world;
she was called upon to endure. But mo;
every one thinks thnt 1 must be perfectly
happy, and yet 1 know nonomore wretch
rd than myself. You cannot judge, your
lifo has been t happy ; your Jhusband
well nigh worships you ; ho always gives
you your own way. To be sure, you nev
er take it as I would , 1 ut it only proves
as I said, that you cann it understand my
trials, having had so much happiness. "
" And yet, Carrie dear, there was a time
once, when you said, that .rather than
nubniit to my daily nnnovnnccs, you
would run aw ay anil leave husband and
children. "
"Oil reinembor j that was when Ocorge'u
mother and sisters lived with you. But
the old lady almost adored you before she
died, and the sisters ditto, for they seem
ed to take you for a pattern in their ovn
families. "
"And should I thus have won their
love if I had returned anger for their sus
picion, recrimination for their fault find
ingf It is hardjto be patient when the
blood is stirred ; but surely it is better,
than by strife to keep up unholy feelings
that gentleness might conquer. Tho in
fluence which pcoplo aro least ablo to re
sist is a gentlo, forbearing tempor. I am
satisfied that we win more victories in
lifo by what wo forbear to do, than by what
wo do. "
"Still I say that I think you would
find yourself at a loss what to do in my
position. Such trials as mine are harder to
bear. "
But tho samo rales may fit, dear. "
' How?"
"May I speak very plainly?"
" Say all that in in your heart. "
" Well, then, begin by looking your
troubles in tho face ; set them in array,
count them, and estimate your capabili
ties for overcoming them. "
"But I cannot enduro. "
"Tiicn overcome. "
" That is impossible. "
"Lot us see. You have a husband

now," Raid little Charlie Wharton "I
like you a great deal better than Lucille ;
I sni so glad flip is gone."
"And so am I," sai i his sister Carrie,
"now we have such nice times here in
your pretty room, Mamma. O! dear, it
was so miserable up :here in the nursery.
Lucille wm so cross she used to strike us,
and she beat Charlie one day, because he
told Iur she ought to be nshamed to slap
little baby Mary when sho cried ; and
thnt In believed she gave lier poison out
ot the bottle."
"Well, I believe sho did, Mamma; I
used to see her giving some black stuff to
baby Mary, that made her sleep- ever so
hard ; and Lucille used to go nway after
she put us to bed, nnd sho used to tell us
that if wo made any noise while she was
gone, or told any one that she was nway,
sho would bo sure to kill us or sell us away
to the Jews, and they would carry us away
in their old clothes bags."
"Ard its all so nico now, Mamma. Ta
pa don't look grave and sad as ho used to ;
and you never send Charlie and mo nway

she cftino. I love her a sight too."
"You may well love aunt Mary, Charlie
dear,' Faid his mother fondly stroking
tho golden curly head that lay upon her
lap, "sho is tho best friend that you and
your mother ever had."
"And J, too, acknowledged Aunt Mary
by the same tillo," said Mr. Wharton, who
entered ltirin Charlie's hist speech ; "al

The landlord hesitated a moment, and
then replied :
"There is a gentleman up stairs, but

Don't I want a jewsharp as much as he

to school, and about his running away
from the school-mistress when sho was
going to whip him, and then shuts me up
all day in a dark room because I tried, just

Goetue's Love of Art ani Hatred or
MAitatAGE. It ws Goethe'i theory that,
for the glory of German literature and his
own, he ought to hold himself free f.om
the restraints and encumbrances of mar-
riago; but that for tho same all-sufiiciont
reason he waa privileged to win heatts
nnd cast them away, for the sake of the
knowledge ho might acquiro in the pro
cess. Wo confess that, with all our
admiration for his genius, wo are
not much moved to pity by the just
retribution that befel this coldblooded
coxcomb, when in middle lifo ho became
liuked for years to no more congenial a
companion than a femalo sot. If Goethe
had married Frcderika Brion, the pastor's
daughter, of Scsheim, the story of whoso
abused affections is one of the most pain
ful episodes in his career, he would proba
bly have been no worse a poet, and would
ceitainly have been mote worthy o( honor
as a man. This, however, is by no means
the opinion of his German idolators, one
of whom declares it to be everything but
evident to him " that infidelity to his
genious would not have been a greater
crime in Goethe than infidelity to his
mistress."

An Africa Rack Free or Disease. Aa
African traveler says : ,
"The Dokos multiply very rapidly, but
have no regular marriages, the intercourse
of the sexes leading to no settled home,
each in perfect independence going whith
er fancy leads. Tho mother nurses hor
child only for a short time, accustoming
it as soon as possible to the eating of ser
pents and ant; and as soon as the child
can help itself, the mother lots it depart
whither it pleases. Although these peo
ple lire in thick woods, and conceal them
selves among tho trees, yet they become
the prey of the ulave-hunter of Susa,
Kafl'a, Dumbora, and Kulla; for whole
regions of their woods are encircled by tho
hunters, so that the Dokos cannot easily
escape. When the slavo-hunterscomo in
sight of the poor creatures they hold up
clothes of bright colors, singing and dan
cing, upon which the Dokos allow them-,
selves to be captured without resistance,
knowing from experience that resistance
is fruitless, and can only lead to their de
struction. In Him way thousands can be
captured by a small band of hunters ; and
once captured, they become docile. In
slavery, the Dokos rotain their predilec
tion for eating uiico, serpents, and ants,
although often on that account punished
by their masters, who, in other respects,

enjoy good Health, tor wlucli reason they
are never sold as slaves beyond Enarca.
As diseases aro unknown among them,
they die only or old age, or through tho
assaults of their enemies.
R.ui.wAy across Tr.E Andes. Our Amer
ican engineers scale the highest range of
mountains with the locomotive. Mr.
Willism Wheelwright, au American, who
has been engaged for a long time in buil
ding railroads in Soul h America, has ex
plored the route, and jeports thnt a rail
way can be built across the Andes, thus,
making line from the Pacifio to Kosario
via Codova, n distanco of 1,100 miles. It
is claimed thnt the advantages which
would accrue by opening up the South,
American States to commerce, the llio do
la Plata being ntkvigable for vessels draw
ing twelve feet of water, would be itn
mouse. Tho Argentine Republic has of
fered a free grant of land live mile in
j breaath on each side of the railway, to
aid in its construction, nnd the project is
gcrrrally thought practicable. It is sla
ted that Mr. Wheelwright, in construe
ling railroads in South America, has used
gradinnts of 152 and 250 feet per mile, acil
carried thorn to an elevation of 0,000 feot
above the level of t lie sea.
BsULln answer to a query from a corros
pondent, 1 lie Chicago Journal says that
'Artemus Ward,' whose humorous writings
are known in the daily papers, is Mr.
Brown, local editor of the Cleveland P'ain
deiilcr. 'Artemus Ward, the Showman,' is
a name assumed by him, though there is
really n mnn by thnt name, and a regular
genius in the show business, who exhibits
wax tixtures 'and sech and makes a great
deal of fun down in Indiana. Mr. Brown
is a young man of fine abilities as a writer,
fie was brought up to the business, being
a jour printer 'by trade,' and an editor by
education. He don't look like a funny
man at all, being 'on the contrary, quite
the reverse ;' but that he is a funny roam
none will doubt who have read his queer
"Artemu3 Ward" letters.

tho census or 1850, 2,957.057 of the slave
of the United States wero black, or of
African descent, and 240,050 were mulat

' nre about one eighth as numerous as the:
marks ; the free mulattncs are more than
half tho number of the free blacks, whihk
tho slave mulattoos nre only about ont?
twelfth of the slavo blacks, whilst nearly
half of the colored people of the non
slavebolding States jire niulattoes. lis
Ohio and the Territories there are more
niulattoes than blucks.

ItaTSome women are excessively fonT
of teasing those whom they love. It it
generally tho very impassioned in tem
perament, or the very cold, who do so.
Tho latter, where love is camparatively
languid may do it almost constantly; tho
former just in tho intervals where tho
pulse of love rathor intermits ; and in thi
case it seems only to be a part or form of
the ccneralcraving for excitement of somif
kind or other.
