THE STOCKING. '
By the fireside eni.ily scaled,
With spoctncUs riding hur nose,
The lively olil laoy is knitting
A won derful pair kfbose.
She pitis ttio shivering soldier
Who is out In the polling itonn,
And busily plies her needles
To keep him hearty and warm.
Ucreyes are reading the embers,
But her heart ii off to the war,
Fur iha known what I hose breve fellows
Are gallantly fighting for.
Ker fioKon as will aa her fancy
Are cheering Ihern on thoir way,
Who under the good old banner,
Are laving their country to-day.
She ponder bow in ber childhood
11 gninduiotber used to tell
The story of barefoot soldier
Who fought so long and well:
And the men of the involution
Are nearer Is her than us,
And that, perhaps, is the reason
Why she is toiling thus.
f he ciinnnt bouldr & raa.ikot,
Corrida with the Cavalry crow,
But nevertheless she is ready
To work lor the bors who do.
And yet in official dispatohos
That come from the army or fleet,
rr feats may lure nevtT a notice
Though ever so mijjhiy the foetl
go rrlthoe, proud orner of muscle,
Or purse-proud owner of stocks,
Iion't sneer at the labors of women,
Or smile at ber bundle of socks.
Her heart tuny be larger and braver
Than his who is tallest of all ;
1 he work of her bunds ai important
As cash tbut buys powder and ball.
And thns wLite her quiet performance
Is being recorded in rhyme.
The tools iu her tremulous Angers
Are running a race with Time.
Strange that four needles can form
A perfect triangular bound ,
And equally strange that their antics
llesult in perfecting "the round,"
And now while beginning "to narrow,"
She thinks of the Maryland mud.
And wonders if over the storking
Will wade to the aukle in blood.
And now she is "shaping the heel,"
And now she is ready "to bind,"
And rmpes, if the soldier is wounded,
It never will be from behind.
And now she is "raising the iniitop,"
Now "narrowing olfat the toe,"
Anil prays that this end of ths worsted
May ever be turned to the foe.
She "gathers'' the last of tlio stitcho",
As it a new laurel was won,
And placing the ball in the basket
Announces the stocking as "done.''
Ye nion who oro fighting our battles,
Away from the oomforts uf lifo,
Who thoughtfully muse by yourcnmp-liros,
On sweetheart, or sister, or wife,
Just think of their elders a little.
And pray for the grandmothers, too,
Who, patiently sitting in corners, j
Are knitting the stocking for you.
I'RoinBiLiiv of Marrvinq A table in
sirted in a paper in the Assurance Magic
fine, exhibits results of rather a startling
character. In the first two quinqMcniv.al
period, 20-25 ami 25-30, the probability
; of a widower marrying in a year is nearly
5 three times, as great as that of a bachelor.
At 30 it is nearly fo'ir times as great ; and
; it increases, until at CO the chance of a
' widower marrying in a year is eleven
times as great ns that of a bachelor. It is
a little curious to remark trom this table
liow confirmed either class becomes in it)
condition of life how little liktly, after a
few years, is a bachelor likely to break
through his habits and a solitary condi
tion ; and, on theotherband, how readily
in proportion does a husband contract a
second marriage who has been premature
ly deprived ol Ins tirst vife. Alter the age.
of .'!0 the probability of a bachelor marry
ing in a year diminishes, in a most, rapid
ratio. The probability at 35 is not more
thuu half that at 30, and no irly the same,
proportion exists between each quinquen
nial period afterwards, Our bachelor
friends may learn a very melancholy lei
boh from the above starlline facts.

In addition to what we have already

the following in the issue of December
"We this morning publish tho official report

of slavery, the report contirms our worst nppre

that ths report on this hoad can be regarded on
