THE BAREFOOT BOY.
Blessings on thee, little nun,
Barefoot bov. with cheeks of tan!
With upturned pantaloons.
And thy merrv whistled tunes —
With thv red Tip. redder still
Kissed by strawberries on the hill —
With the sunshine on thy face.
Through thy torn brim's jaunty grace;
From my heart I give thee joyj
I was on< e a barefoot boy!
Oh ! for boyhood's painless play,
Bleep that wakes in laughing day,
Health that mocks the doctor's rules,
Knowledge never learned at schools
Of the wild itee's morning chase,
Of the wild flower's time and place,
Flight of fowls, and habitude
Of the tenants of the wood,
lfow the tortoise bears his shell.
How the woodehuek digs his cell.
And the ground mole sinks his well,
How the rohin feeds her young,
How the oriole's nest is hung;
Where the whitest lillies blo'w,
Where the freshest berries grow,
Where the grotuid nut trails itsarine,
\V here the wood-grape clusters shine ;
Of the black wasp's cunning way,—
Mason of his walls of clay,
And the architectural plans,
Of gray-hornet artizans!
For eschewing books and tasks,
Nature answers all he a-ks;
Hand in hand with her he walks,
Face to faee with her he talks.
Part and parcel of her jcy—
Blessings on the barefoot boy!
Cheerily then, my little man,
Live and laugh, as boyhood can.
Though the flinty slopes he hard,
Stubhie-spread the new-mown sward,
Every morn shall lead thee through
Fresher baptism of the dew;
Every evening from thy feet
Shall the coo! wind kiss the heat;
Ami too soon those feet shall hide
In the prison cells of pride,
Lose the freedom of the sod,
Like a colt for work be shod,
Made to tread the mill* of toil,
I p and down in ceaseless moil—
Happy if thy track be found
Never on forbidden ground—
Happy if tiiey sink not in
Quick and treacherous sands of sin
Ah : that thee may know thy joy,
Ere it passes, barefoot boy!

for an abundant harvest in our life,
than all the way through this part of
our journey. From Baltimore we
passed northwest through the central
part of Maryland where the same pros
pect of future plenty greeted us; but
the traveler can not help noticing the
contrast between free Pennsylvania
and the effects of slavery in Maryland
—perhaps a mansion on somo fine em
inence, surrounded by a beautiful
strove, but miserable negro quarters
just behind it, and scarcely a fence on
the plantation. This is in the eastern
part of the State. In the western, the
scone is quite different. Farms are
smaller, well cultivated and sell from
sixty to one hundred and twenty five
dollars per acre. After reaching the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad we went to
Washington, which we lound in a very
quiet condition. No eloquent strains
are heard in our Congressional halls.
The committee on impeachment are
evidently taking their time to it. Sev
eral important witnesses, however,
have arrived. The coming Surratt
trial creates little excitement. We
called on the President, but he having
taken his afternoon "snap," could en
tertain no visitors that day, so we con
tented ourselves with a stroll through
the gardens and green house, connect
ed with the President's mansion.—

Prof. Browne, lately lectured in Now
\ork, on the ' Bangerous Parasites
which Infest Mankind, and their food.'
Concerning Trichinae he Baid:
This parasite originated almost en
tirely in tho swine, and is there invis
ible to the naked eye. When flesh
containing the trichina? is introduced
in the human stomach the flesh is dis
solved, and the parasite unloosed from
its cell. When this occurs the parasite
is about one-thirtieth of an inch in
length. Birth is then given to trichi
na?, which straightway proceed to pene
trate the whole muscular and flesh sys
tem through the aliamentary canal.—
These young trichina? are at first only
one five hundred and fortieth of an
inch in length, and resemble a worm
in spiral coil. By the time they tra
verse the system, however, they in
crease in size many fold, and then be
gin to make felt that terrihlo dis
ease to which they have given the
name. The parasites first introduced
never cause trouble, except by the pro
duction of their offspring. The disease
is first made apparent by pains in tho
joints, the head, and the spine, and tho
patient gradually wastes away and
dies. The lecturer had seen many ca
ses of this disease in Germany, where
it is particularly prevalent. Some con
stitutions, hut few, withstood it. The
trichina? did not create disease by eat
ing away tho flesh—which they are
not fitted to do—hut by hindering, or
closing up, the forces and process by
which health is preserved.
