"I have seen the first robin of Spring, mother
And have heard the brown darling sing ;
Ton said, " Bear it and wtah, and 'twill surely

I thought I would like Modal something for
But I couldn't think whit it could be -
That you'd want while you had all these beau
tiful things;
Besides, you have papa and me
So I wished /or a ladder: so long that Iwould
One end hyliar own cottage door,
And the other go up put the moon and the
. stars,
And lean against /leaven's white door.
Then I'd get you to pat , on niy pretty white
dress, - 4
With my sash and my pretty new shoes,
Then,rd find some white roses to take up to
The most beautiful ones I could choose.
And you and dear papa would sit on the ground
And Wm me and tell me ,Vood-by;'
Then Vd go up the ladder far out of your sight
Till Icame to the door in the sty!
I wonder if God keeps the doorlastened tight?
If but ono little crack I conld see,
I would whisper, • Please, God, let this little
girl In ;
Sher as tired as she can be! .
She came all alone from the earth to•the sky:
For she's always beeri waiting to lee
The gardens of Heaven, with their robins and
--, flowers,
Meese, God, is here room there for me?'
And then, when the angels had opened the
Ood would say, 'Bring the little child here,'
But He'd speak it so so softly-I'd not be afraid;
And He'd smile last lace you, mother dearl
Ho would put His kind arms round omi dear

And rd ask Him to send down for you,
And papa, and cousin, and all that I love—

Charles Haskell was just sixteen.
He had finished his course of study
at the High School, and being im
petuous and active, be longed to be
gin his part in the drama otlife. The
day came on which be was to leave
his childhood's home. His mother's
parting advice was earnestly given ;
- she said - , " I have prayed for the
blessing of Heaven Ivan you —in
life, leave such footprints on the
sands of time,' as you would wish
your dearest friends to follow. Let
the Bible be your guide, and in every
temptation learn to say no. I have
embroidered the - motto as a book
mark for you; it is done 'with strands
of 'my own hair. Before we meet
again,,all that is mortal of me, ex
cept these few strands, may bo crum
bled into dust. Then let the motto
be a reminder of all a mother could
counsel a hived son."
Young Haskell went to a distant
city. His unseen guardian angel
went with him, sad the tempter also,
and now The contest for Mastery be
tween the two began.
"Well, Chum, you've come to tha
city in just the right time. This is
fair week, and we clerks can choose
any one day we please to go: There
is always the biggest crowd tho day
the horses race. Oh, it's glorious
excitement the way they bet. And
then you'll see more 'blooded stock'
in one day than in a life-time of
common observation." They decid
ed to go together, and Haskell felt
secure in the thought that he could
not be induced to ,bet—oh, no, not
be. ' -
" Look, Charley, here they come ;
see that arched neck, and how those
hoofs keep time to the music." The
ring is aeon filled with , spirited met
tle, and " hurrah, I bet,-,are Sounds
that ` fill the air. " You bet ten dol
hula," said the dark tempter. "Bet
ird°thing," said the guardian angel.
Remember your prayer, 'lead me
grinto temptation,' and here you
in the midst of it." "Go ahead
run your chance to' make your
fen a hundred," said the dark spirit.
Remember the goad prophet Ezekiel
flays : 'Behold, therefore, I haie
written my hand at thy dishonest
gain which thou bast made," said
the guardian angel.
Haskell turned to his companion
and said : "I'll leave the crowd. I'll
not take the first step towards being
a gambler." :
lAgain the tempter came. "Have
a cigar, Charley, these are royal Ha-
Tans& Quite a genteel article." The
Cigar lay on the table before him.
Bo genteel and smoke," said a dark
Voice, ' It's very social when with a
friend to while an hour away, and
forget the cares of life in the fragrant
W ,
eed.' " Don't b egin ,' said a mild,
sweet monitor. It will introduce a
long scale of physical evils, and you
Cannot afford to discount your time."
Thank you,".esid Charley, "I do
not wish to learn to smoke. I have
do desire to die of any-of the nervous
diseases of smokers."
4"Hal ha I Charley You're quite
philosopher and Puritan. For my
art I'm not tied to my motha's
apron string, and as we don't go
through this vale of tears but owe,
bound to have a good time -as I
gold!! g. Good-by, Puritan Charlie."
"_ communications corrupt
good manna's," said Clarks: "Otte
cannot smoke without —the
latter is certainly anuidirea Scum
iirsdi and the former a bad habit."
r?"'S - 7?
Months _passed and New. Yeses
same. The tempter this time was es
beautiful as the fabled' Belem.
" Here is wine, old and rate; papa
only opens it for festive oecuielle
hire this Take it as a pledge of good
wishes for the cooing year."-
'Said the inner, dark yoke, " Drink,
you simpleton; don't afkul the fair
est friend you have, just for one
swallow." " Touch not, taste not,
handle not," said a sweet stall voice,
"for at last it biteth like a
and stingeth like an adder7V
frosty air of the winter's morning
seemed to waft from his childheodra
home—learn to say no." - -
"Thank you, Wm Emma,' I have
never yet tasted an that can
intoxicate, and I will not begin. But
'I wish you joy, pure, like the crystal
of yonder empty glass, and may your
life never be shaded by sorrow,
hued as the wine of this goblet." -
With a courteous , bow he left the
rich apartment.
Three temptations had crossed
Haskell's life, and not without a
mental conflict had he come off vic •
tor. The step once taken in a right
direction, it is more easy to follow it
up. To-day Haskell is an honored
=XI, and his companion of the horse
race and cigars, makes self-indul
genee his first eare, and is loved as
much in a decreasing ratio as is Has
kell in an increasing one.
Boys, learn to say no, not from
policy but principle. Don't say it, in
a sickly, feeble way, and by the tones
of your voices give others to under
stand " I'll say yes, if you will urge
mo a little." Lot it be a round, clear,
and distinct lie I as well defined and
sparkling as the fall moon. A hea
then moralist once said, "it 'is not
because things are difficult that we
dare not undertake them." Boys of
the nineteenth century, what is it
then ? Is not self-gratification the
principal root of all the evils? Dare
to do right, be bold of spirit, but
gentle in manner. Say no to trifles
of sin as well as to flagrant trans
gressions. Let your inner and outer
life be at peace, and in the end merit
the higher eternal lite.
At the beginning of the present
century, the navy of the young na
tion just rising on this continent Wall
possessed of some of the beat vessels
in the world. Among them was the
famous Constitution, which vessel is
still in the service, having been sta
tioned at the Naval Academy as a
school-ship for the last ten years:
About this-date the steam-engine
was used to propel vessels by means
of paddle-wheels. To whom really
belongs the honor of applyiniT steam
as a motor for ships
. is a disputed
point, into the discussion of which it
is not desirable to enter—it ill, how
ever' pretty well settled that Fulton
was the first builder of a steamboat
intended for traffic. The success of
this vessel was followed by great im
provements in that line. and render
ed possible the grand system of in
ternal commerce for which this coun
try is so well adapted. In 1814 the
`same Fulton proposed to build a
floating battery for the defense . of
New York harbor, the vessel to be
pro, lied by steam, with a central
•• . die - wheel. This is
,the first
own proposition to use the new
motive power for war purposes.
Ilia vessel was to carry twenty guns
on her gun-deck, and to make a
speed of four miles per hour. In ad
dition to her armament on deck, it
Was intended that she. should carry
two submarine guns on each bow, so
as to strike an enemy below the wa-
ter-line; besides this, provision was
made for throwing a large body . of
water upon an enemy at close quar
ters. The ship was launched in No
vember, 1814, in a little more than
four months from the laying of the
keel; by June, 1815, her machinery
wail lit place, and a trial trip took
place in New York Bay, which was a
great success. At a later period she
made a trip to sea about twenty-six
miles. from New Y ork, with all her
coal and armament on board, attain
ing a speed of nearly six knots. This
formidable craft was- named by her ' l
projector the Demologos, but after
his death she was called the Fulton;
she was used as a receiving-ship at
the New York navy' yard alter her
completion until 1829, when she was
accidently blown up by the explosion
of the powder in her magazine. Such
was the first ;venture of our govern
ment toward war steamers.-=From
...Naval Architecture, Past and Pres
ent," by Allan T. Brown, in Harper's
Magazine for April.
wis originally, we find, a compara
tively huge and 'bungling" thing, and
was moved by weights—in short, it
was only a "little clock," a "pocket
edition" theroof, as it were. Its case
was at first made of iron, and on ac
count of the weights it had to be
borne about in a suspended position,
as by a cord about the neck, hanging
down on the breast. It was only , a
little over three centuries ago, about
the year 1555, - that the spring . was
devised, doing away with weights,
and rendering the instrument more
readily and safely portable. These
springs were then only straight pieces
of steel, not coiled as now, and occu
pying more - space. The watch of
those days had bat one index or hand,
and required to be wound often, two
or three times a day. The hoes or
'Alias were of metal, brass 'usually,
and the cases were without e
but opened in front and at the back,
not unlike the "hunting-watch" case
of to-day. The case Was from five to
six inches in. diameter—a fashion
which modern indisposition to 'bear
alma large weights" would hardly
tolerate. As may be .resdily conjec
tared, the watch of those time was
a very costly affair, worth more than
many a New England farm now is,
and requiring along time in its con
struction It ut computed that the
avenge value of the watches ofthose
days was equivalent to fifteen hun
dred dollars of our currency.—Ex

where Mr. B.'s essidendswask
to behold a single old rude cabin;
closely surrounded by the most su

when he should learn that. the au

"cabin " should nos be molested so
long as the inmates should live. And
who were the inmates ? A solitary
couple, with color contrasting as
much with that of their neighbors as
the mean "cabin" did with their
stately abodes.
These perm= had spent long

some means &yen them to spend

hard bondage. Among - others who
thus entered this cabin was Mr.

Jerome mentions this library, and
Dr. Adam Clark remarks upon it,

A SyBANGE &roar. About five
years ago a youth, apparently fifteen
or sixteen years of age, called a
publishing house. of John E. Potter
A: Co, in Philadelphia, and offered a
manuscript story for publication.
Mr. Potter, the head of the firm, who
happened to be in at the tiine,smiled
at the idea of one so youthful aspir
ing to appear in literature - as the au
thor of a book, but finally, at the ur
gent request , of theboy, consented
to keep the manuscript a few days
and look it over. When he had done
so he was convinced that the story,
while evincing a lack. of polished ed
ucation ,on the part of the boyish au
thor, possessed considerable merit as
an exciting novel, some of the scenes
being described with wonderful pow
er, and after consulting with the oth
er members of the souse; decided to
publish it. When the youth called
a few days afterward he .told him of
his conclusion, and it was agreed
that the author should receive a roy

How do you think you would like
to live, fearing every • moment to be
blown up; not daring to 'speak load,
to jar anything,. for fear of starting
an explosion that would send you in
an instant to the other world ?
Yon don't think it would be. very
pleasant? Well, it isn't; yet hun
dredi of men live in just that state—
work, receive pay, and live, year af
ter year, in the very sight of death,
as it were; all. that the world may.
have gunpowder.
Yon can easily guess the those
men go about .very quietly, and never
Yon luiow-that gunpowder is very
dangerous in a gun or near a fire,
but perhaps you don't know that it
is equally angerous all through the
process of d
making. A powder mill
is a fearful place to visit, anfrstran
gers are very seldom allowed to go
into one, They are"bat far from
the town, in the woods, and each
branch of the work is done in a sep
arate building. These houses are
quite.a distance from each other, so
that if one blows up, it won't blow
UP the rest. Then the lower parts
of the building are made very strong,
while the roofs. are very lightly set
on, so that if .it eiplodes only the
roof will suffer. But in spite of every
care, sometimes a whole settlement
of the powder mills go off almost in
an instant, and every vestige of the
work of years will be swept away in
a few seconds,
But though°-•you feel like holding
your breath to look at it, it is really
a very interesting Process to see. It is
made, perhaps you know, of cluirecal,
saltpeter and brimstone. Each of
these articles is prepared in a 'house
by itself; but the house" where they
are mixed is the first terrible one. In
this building •is an immense mill
stone, rolling round and round in 'an
iron bed. In this bed, and under
the stone are put the three fearful
ingredients of gunpowder. Their are
there thoroughly mixed and ground
This is a very dangerous operation,
because if the stone comes in contact
with its iron bed, it is very apt to
strike fire, and the merest suspicion
of a spark would set off the whole.
The materials. are ; spread three or
four inches thick 'in the bed; the
wheel, which goes by 'Water, is start
ed, and every man leaves the place.
The door is shut, and the machinery
left to do its terrible work alone.
When it has run long enough, the
mill is stopped, and the men come
back. The operation leaves the pow
der in lamps or cakes. °
_ 'The next house is where these
cakes are broken into grains, and, of
course, is quite as dangerous -as the
last one. But the men can't go away
from this: they are obliged to attend
to it every moment; and you may be
sure no larighoor joke- is ever heard
within its walls. Every one who
goes in has to take off his boots,. and
put on rtibbers, because one gram of
the dangerous powder, crashed by
I `the boot," would explode the whole in
an instant.
The floor of this house is covered
- With leather, and is made perfectly
black by the dust of the gunpowder.
It contains a set of sieves each one
smaller than the last, through which
the powderis sifted; and an inmense
ground and laboring , mill, where it
is ground up, while men shovel it
with wooden shovels. The machine
ry makes a great deal of noise,. but
the men are silent,. as in the other
houses. The reckless crashing of
the machinery oven seems to give
greater horror, atm one is very glad
to get out of that house. • •
The glazing house , comes next.
Glazing is done by mixing black lead
with the powder, to give it a black
and shiny look. -The powder is put
into barrels, which revolve for sever-
ul hours. That polishes the grains
by their rubbing together. Of course
the dust flies from all these opera
tions, and the workmen, silent, like
the rest, look like very black negroes,
working in the blackest of powder,
in a room 'whose walls and floors are
blear than the rest, if possible. It
has a very singular look to a stran
ger, and added to the, horrible. si
lence, makes one feel that the whole
world has gone into mourning. .of
tea, the gunpowder revolting so rap
idly in the barrels, gets very hot; so
this, too, is a - dangerous operation..
The storing house is the nest on
the list, and there the gunpowder is
heated on wooden tray& It is very
hot and no workmen. stay there.
From there it goes to the pack
house, and is put up jn bure kegs
and canisters. -
