The annual re-union of the children and
grand-children of Mrs. WF.aurnir RIDG
WAY took place at the old , homestead near
Monroeton,on the 3d of the present mouth,
and was a very enjoyable affair. The re
unions of this happy family have grown
into an established institution, and have
been occasions of great enjoyment and
happiness to all who have participated in
them. The meeting this year was no ex
ception to the 'yule ; it Was a continual
round of pleasure from early, morning un-
til evening. It seemed that everything
which could contribute to the enjoyment
of the occasion had been provided. Lov
ing bands had beautifully decorated the
old home until it seemed instinct with
life ; beautiful bouquets smiled from the
midst of .1 fantastically-arranged ever
greens in nearly every nook and corner of
the house ; the long veranda was so orna
mented with wreaths and_ festoons of
flowers and evergreens, that it seemed
like one huge bouquet. The boys—for they
were'all boys and girls again—opened the'
festivities of the day by tiring alialute in
real military style, which seemed to be
thiasignal for the frolic to begin ; and it
did begin in right good earnest, and cori:
tinned all day long without intermission
or diminution. Swinging, croquet play
ing, extemporized concerts,—everything
that they thought would contribute to the
enjoyment of • the day, was .engaged in
with a zeal that was truly refreshinz to
witness. The refreshments for the occa
sion seemed to have been gotten i'ip with
out any thought of expense or labor;
everything that heart could wish, appetite
crave or ingenuity invent was there to
contribute•to the enjoyment of the inner
man. Turkeys which had ruled the barn
yard with lordly dignity all summer, now
lay on the table stripped of all their , dig
nity, as if overcome by the scone; hens
that had Lid their nests and laid away all
summer, were by a little gentle persuasion
induced to lay on the table undersa pie
crust: In short, nature and art seemed to.
vie with each other in contributing to the.
enjoyment Of the occasion.
Amidst all ills festiliities, one object
was kept constantly in view,—it was
Monirra'A BtaTunay ,; so everithing was
done to this deference of Mother. She was
made .to feel that the festivities were in
honor of lairi t and for herlenjoyment, and
a large number 3f beautiful presents were
given her as a token of their love. The
number present was forty-one (nearly all
children or grandchildren)rather an un
fashionable family as to numbers. "May
their shadows never. grow less." And I
understand there IS'a prospect of it being
larger soon; as the only - immarried'son is
looking around for a youdig lady to add
to the family.
Below are a few lines extemporized by
a lady &lest, not as an exhibition of merit,
but to gii-e expression to the feelirgs of
the family. The lines were sung to the
air of "Auld Lang Syne."
We gather at the old home nest
Anettue year has gone.
We come a joyous, happy guest,
To cheer the dear old tome.
We gather 'round the festive board,
Not as In days of yore,
But with our little ones we erne
To greet you all once more.
Mother .1 the name how sweet It Is,
Dearest of ail on earth :
Today we gather borne agate
To celebrate her birth.
Some have crossed to the other side,
To heaven's bright borne so fair,
But father, mother, sister, brother,
All today are 'here.
Time and change have left their furrows
Deep upon her brow ;
Mother's dearest eartnlypreasnre •
Lett to children now.
Soon she'll brush the dews of Jotdan.
Soon will cross Its spray.—
Soon shell join the loved In heaven,
• And-tread the pearly way.
O bow sweet to know In heaven.
That the broken chain
That wax shattered here on earth
Will there be Joined again. •
Sweet to know that all the loved ones
On the other shore.
Are waiting wlth.thetr songs to greet as.
• There to part po more. .
