like to know.]—En.
Oh! ciliate me on thy knee, hi ma,
And - sing me the holy strain -
That sooth'd me last, as yen f dly prest
My glowing cheek to yoursof, 'elite breast,
For I saw a scene When I
. 9..0 ei'd last
That I fain would see again
Andsmile as you then did eta
And weep as you then di '.!'
, 'epl , . - -
Then fix on me thy glisen" ' - , : , .z - ,
And gaze, and gaze, till the ar be dry;
Then rock me gently, and sigh and sigh
Till you lull ine fast asleep,
For I dream'd a heavenly - dream, matuai,
While slumbering on thy knee,
And I livy in a land wherefeitris divine
In kingdoMS of glory etetlially shine,
And the world I'd give, if the world were Mine,
Again that land to see.
I fancied we roam'd in a wood,
And we rested, as under a bthigh;
'then near me a butterfly flaunted in pride,
And I chas'd it away through the forest wide,
And the night came on, and I lost my guide,
And I know not what to do.
My heart grew sick with fear, mamma, '
And I loudly wept for thee;
But a white rob'd maiden emitted in to air;
And she flung back-the curls of hdi golden hair,
And she kiss'd me - softly ere I Was aware,
Saying, "Come, pretty babe, With me!"
My tears and fears slte*gtril'd, mamma,
Aud she led molar away;
We enter'd the door of the dark, dark tomb;
We pass'd through a long, long vault of gloom ;
Then open'd our eyes on a land of bloom,
And a sky of endless day.
And heavenly forms were there, nsgaine.,
And lovely cherubs bright;
They smiN when they saw me, but I was amaz'd,
And wondering, around me I gaz'd and gaz'd;
And songs I heard, and sunny, beams blued—
All glorious in the land of fight.
But soon came a shining throng, mamma,
'Of white-wing'd.babes to me;
'Their eyes look'it.love, and their sweet lips
And they marred to meet With an earth born child
And they gloried that' 'from the earth was exil'd,
Saying—"Hereildim; blest shalt thou be."
Then I mix'd with the heavonlyllirong, mamma,
With cherub and seraphim fair;
And saw, as I ream'd the regions of peace,
The spirits . which came from this world, of dielress
And there was the joy no tongue can express,
For they know no sorroirthere.
Do you mind when sister Jane, mamma,
Lardead a short time ago?
Oh ! you gazed on the sad, but lovely wreck,
With a full flood of woe you could not check';
And your heart was so sore, you wish'd it would
But it liv'd, and you, aye, sobb'd on! [break.
But, oh !lad you been with me, mamma,
In the realfas of iinkSsWn care,
And seen that I saw, you ne'er hatl cried,
Though they buriedprettyJartela the grave whoa
she died ; . . .
For shining with thobloSt, abd itdorn'tllikett bride
Sweet sifter..7one inns thetel
r lio you mind of that silly old man, mamma,
Who came late to our door,
And the -night was dark, and the tempest loud,
And his heart was weak, butliis soul was proud,
And his ragged old mantle serv'd for his shroud,
`'Ere the midnight watch was o'er.
And think what a weight of time, mamma,
le'll'eary each long ciraivii sigh,
its the good old man aeon papa's old chair,
While the rain dripp'd clown from his thifcgroy
And fast as the big tears of speechless care [hair,
Ran down from his gliiing
And think what a hravenwardlook, mamma,

LOVE IV A PRINTING OFFICE.
I once heard an old Jour remark that
a printing office was no place for Ibre
making, and I have since experienced
the truth of the observation, being now
perfectly convinced 4hat the flower of
love can never bloom in the midst of
types, cases and printing ink.
It was my fortune once to sojourn for
a few days in the village of Di.
rectly opposite the office was a pretty
white cottage with a rose bush clamber
ing around the caseinent, , and I was nal
long in making-the dieeoVery that the
aforesaid cottage with the rose-shaded
window contained a fair inmate, a flow.
er whose beauty outshone the roses that
clustered around the window. She was
the belle of the village. Iler naive was
Mary—sweet poetic Mary. I have a
passion for the name of Mary.
It was a beautiful summer morning,
and I had raised the wind'oW to admit
the fresh breeze from the flower-decked
fields-, and it was not- long ere I perCeiv
ed 'the cottage window was also hoisted,
and that sweet little Mary was sitting
busily engaged . with her needle. I
worked but little that Morning. My
eyes constantly wandered towards the
cottage window, where little Mary sat,
and all sorts ofitrange . fantastic notions
whirled throukii'my brain, and I began
to think I felt - a light touch of what po'-
ets call love sliding in . at one corner of
my heart , ..
A few days passed away and chance
made me aciluainteci With Mary. Oh
she was-a sweet creature; she bad a form

turned back when beyond my reach, and
with her roguish face "peering through
