John Stiles was fat ns any ox,
And Susan fut as butler.
And there they sat and shelled the corn,
And raked und stirred the lire
And talked of different kind of ears,
And hitched their chairs up nlgher.
Then Susan she the popper shook,
Then John he shook the poker.
Till both their fuccs grew as red
As saucepans made of copper.
And then they shelled, and popped and ate,
All kinds a fun a-poklng;
And he haw-hawed at her remarks,
And she laughed ut his Joking.
And still they popped, and still they ate,
(John's mouth wus like a hopper,)
And stirred the fire, and sprinkled suit,
And shook and Bhook the popper.
The clock struck nine, and then struck ten,
And Htill the corn kq t popping j

And stilt no signs of stopping.
And John lie ntc, and Sue she thought

A Jerseynian's Story.
TinilE following outline of tlie sad story
X "f" a citizen of New Jersey appears
inucli like the romantic tales found in
our sensation weeklies; but tlio narra
tive is nevertheless true, as the distressed
family of the adventurer, who still reside
iu Jersey City, can testily :
Twenty years ago a gentleman in mod
erate circumstances, living in Jersey City,
determined to try his luck -in China.
Accordingly he invested his money in
goods suited for that market and cm
barked on board a ship bound lor Iloug
Kong via. Liverpool. Ilia family, . con
sisting of his wife and several children
were left with sufficient means for their
maintenance until his return, which was
expected to be within four years.
The ship on board which our Jersey
man was a passenger had a fine run to
Liverpool, where she completed her load
ing and then started on a long voyage to
China. Once only did the family of the
Jerseyman hear from him after leaving
Liverpool, and that was by a letter re
ceived by a ship which spoke tho Jer
seynian's craft after rounding the Cupe of
Good Hope. Mouths passed by and no
further news of the ship. She never ar
rived at llong Kong, and nearly a 3 ear
after her departure from Liverpool the
captain returned to that port with the
sad tale of her foundering in mid ocean,
and his own escape, with most of his crew
and passengers, from a fearful death.
The Jerseyman was not among the saved.
A dreadful storm which continued many
days, drove the ship fur out of her course
to tho southward, and finally, after losing
all her spurs, she went down, giving her
crew barely time to lower tho boats be
fore tho noblo vessel " made her final
plunge. The boats containing tho cap
tain and most of the crew, after tossing
upon the sea fo several days, finally
reached a group of islands, where they
remained six or seven months, kindly
treated by the natives, until taken off by
a transient trader and carried to Calcutta,
where they secured a passage to this city.
But the boat in which were the Jersey
man and five seamen wus never heard of
since the uight after tho wreck.
Twenty years of sorrow, struggle and
privation for the Jersey family passed.
Tho noble-hearted widow and mother
fought against tho ills of poverty, keep
ing her children under her own roof tree,
educating and fitting them well to fight
tho battle of life, and hud tho happiness
of seeing them becomo bravo men ami
good citizens, honorable amoii"- the most.
honored. During all these long years of
sorrow ana ton sno clung to the hope that
the husband of her youth would return to
her ; his memory was kept fresh in her
heart, and almost her only solace was the
recollection of the happy hours passed
with him in their cottago home, and the
belief that onco more she would be folded
to his heart. Twenty years rolled slowly
around, tho children became men nnrl
women. 1 And strango young faces were
seen around the hearthston 'I'hn u..f
I fering wife's hair was turning white, aud
her trusting heart was well nigh broken
from its long waiting, when six weeks
ago, came a letter from the wanderer, re
citing his sad history. The second morn
ing airer cue wreck nothing was to be
seen of the other bouts. With but a
small stock of provisions tho Jerseyman
and his five companions, hoping against
hope, determined to shape their course
south of east, trusting to make one of
tne many irrutina of is amis known tn llo
11 that direction. After ten davs' toil.
during which two of the seamen died
from privations, the party readied a small
lsiana, when they were immediately seis
ed by the natives and condemned to a
life of slavery. Their captors were can
nibals, and long sought to induce the
white men to join them in their horrible
orgies; but finding both threats a'nd en
treaties unavailing, they finally desisted,
aud allowed their white slaves to eat such
lood as they chose. One afier another of
his white companions died, until tho Jer
seyman was left alone to his lifo of ser
vitude among the savages, and so ' closely
was he watched that although many ships
touched at the island he was unable to com
niunicato with them. At length a schoon
er from Australia dropped anchor during
a night in March lapt, in a cove near the
hut occupied by the Jerseyman, and be
ing tho tirst to discover her he seized a
canoe and paddled on to her before any
of tho natives were astir. So long had
he been among the savages that he had
lost nearly every recollection of his ori
gin, and had forgotten his native lan
guage. After gaining the deck of the
schooner he was for some time unable to
articulate a word, and only after a copious
flood of tears had relieved him was the
strong man able to utter the simple word
" home." Finally, aft r many efforts, he
made the captain understand his story,
which so affected the noble-hearted sailor
that he at once weighed anchor und sail
ed for Melbourne, where he arrived after
a short passage. Hero the Jerseyman
was kindly cared for by the authorities,
but being too unwell to take passage by
the first gleaner to Honolulu and San
Francisco he sent a letter containing the
joyful tidings of his safety. Last week
a letter in a mourning envelope, lrotn
.Melbourne was received by tho Jersey
man's family. It was from a city official
and contained the sad tidings of the wan
derer's death. After twenty years of
hardship and slavery, just as he was ready
to embark lor his long coveted home, he
was called to tako a longer, moro dreaded
journey, and in that far-off land, omon
strangers, but among Christians, his spir

Taking the Census.
TN endeavoring to take tho census for
1 the government, the marshals occu'
sionally meet with such difficulties as to
well nigh deprive them of their senses.

" Divil a man moro miserable. He
said if I didn't behave myself he'd blow

" Was he at the time of your marriage
a widower or a bachelor l
"A which? a widower did you say?
Ah, now go away wid jour nonsense. Is
it tho likes of mo that would take up wid
a second-hand husband ? Do I look like

A widower ! May I be blessed if I had

Novel use for an Emetic.
WE find in Chamber's London Jour
nal an account of the uiodo in
which a famous collector of precious
stones, recovered a stolen ruby. The nar
rator says :
1 called this morning on a certain well-
known gem-collector, who was so good as
to show me the contents of his cabinet.
After the first half-dozen specimens, my
attention began to wander, for a very lit
tle i;i that sort ot thing goes a great way
" What is that little bottle you have
among your gems?" inquired 1.
" That is my ' Queen Eleanor's Mix
ture, said he, laughing. ' But for it, I
should not he in pos-ession of vonder
ruby, the value of which is over a thou
" What !" cried I, " Do you mean to
say it is artificial ? 1 thought that that
notion ot manufacturing gems was a pop
" So it is," said he, "but, nevertheless.
I am indebted to the mixture for that ru

too well known by half. 1 don't mind
showing it to an old friend like you, aud
of course 1 am proud of all these things.

" But the bottle," said I, " what is the

" That is the supplement to the pistol.
Thus, only yesterday, a very ill-looking
fellow a foreigner, all hair and false
jewelry; and a very foolish thing it was
of him to come to uic with paste-diamonds
in his shirt-front brought a letter
of introduction with him from a friend of
mine in Dresden. The letter was gcuu
iie, but I had my doubts from the first,
as to whether this was the gentleman to
whom it referred. However, I brought
him in here to show him tho gems. He
made some very common place observa-
tions which convinced me that ho knew
nothing of the subject, and after thauk
ing me. in a somewhat scrvilo manner
for my courtesy, ho turned to go. I slip
ped behind him and the door, and locked
it in a second. " My ruby, said I,
you please, or you ro a dead man." And
I put the pistol to his forehead. That
little stone, which I have said is valued at
above a thusand pounds was missing. In
stead ot being indignant, my gentleman
merely answered : " Indeed you aro mis
taken, sir. iou may call your servaut
and examine every pocket."
"I know that, you scoundrel," returned
I. " You have nwallowed the ruby ; now

stood over Fair Rosamond. That's why
I call it Eleanor's Mixture; a decotion
without which no gem cabinet, of any

that some visitor has swallowed it, and

ES It was in a Massachusetts vil ag
that an old scissor-grindor, calling ou
minister made tho usual query :
" Any scissors to grind ?"
Iteceiving a negative answer, it was
the minister s turn, which ho took by ask
" Are you a man of God ?"
" I-do not understand you." 1
" Are you prepared to die ?"
The question struck him homo. Gath

" Pray Without Ceasing."
A sailor wno hud been long absent
from his native country, returned home,
flushed with money. Coming to London,
where he had never been before, ho re
solved to gratify himself with the sight
of whatever was remurkuble. Auione
other places, he visited St. Paul's. It
happeucd to be at the time of divine ser- ,
vice. W lieu carelessly passing, he heard
the words, " Pray without ceasing," ut
tered by the minister, without having any .
impression made upon his mind by theiu.
Having satisfied Ins curiosity in London, :
he returned to his marine pursuits, and
Continued at sea for Beven years, without
any remarkable occurrence in his history.
One tine evening, when the air was soft,
tne Dreezo gentio, the heavens serene, and
tho oceau calm, he was walking the deck,
with his feelings soothed by tho pleasing
aspect of nature, when, all of a sudden,
darted on his mind the words, "Pray
without ceasing 1 " Pray without ceas
ing ?" " What words can these be ?" he
exclaimed. " I think 1 have heard them
before; where could it be?" After a
pause" Oh, it was at St. Paul's in Lon
don ; the minister read them from tho
Bible. What! and do the Scriptures
say, 'Pray without ceasing?' Oh, what
a wretcn 1 uiust be to have lived so long
without praying at all !' " God, who at
tirst caused him to hear this passage
in his ear, now caused it to spring
up in a way, at a time, and with , a
power peculiarly his own. The poor fel
low now fouud the lightning of convic
tion flash on his conscience the thun
ders of the law shako his heart and the
great deep of destruction threaten to
swallow him up. Now he began for the
first time to pray ; but praying was not
all. " Oh," said he, " if 1 had a Bible
or some good book !" He rummaged his
chest, when, in a corner, he espiod a Bi
ble which his anxious mother had, twenty
years before, placed in his chest, but
which, till now, he had never opened.
He snatched it up, put it to his breast, '
then read, wept, prayed ; he believed, and
became a new man.
A Ministerial Error.
It is, I think, an error into which many
of our modern ministers, whose education
has been carried to a high pitch, have
fallen, that everything is to be done by
the head rather than heart. We know
very well, that the true method is to reach
the heart through the head, and men
must bo made to feel by being shown why
they should feel, and what it is to make
them feel. But in many cases, especially
in the least educated, the head in to bd
reached by appeals to the heart. , We'
often hear tho remark :
" Yes, it was a smart sermon, but want
ed heart. It sparkled like the stars, or
shone like the moon on a wintry night,
but warmed no one."
I havo beeu sometimes struck, as ev;ry
one must havo been, with the varying ef
fect produced by different speakers at a
public meeting ; and how much power
over an audience, and how much more
the object of a meeting has been accom
plished by a few gushes of simple elo-.
quence from the heart of some earnest
and ardent advocate, than by the elabo
rate, but passionless pleader. The latter
was coldly admired, and admitted to be an
eloqueut speaker; but the former melted
and moved his audience by the depth
and intensity of his own feelings.
Tlio Two Angels.
A traveller, who spent some timo in
Turkey, relates a beautiful parable which
was told him by the dervish, and it seems
even more beautiful than Sterne's cele
brated figure of the accusing spirit and
recording angel :
" Every man," said the dervish, " has
two angels, one on hia right shoulder and
one ou his left. When he does anything
good, the angel on the right shoulder
writes it down and seals it, because what
is well done is done forever. Wheu he
docs evil, the angel on the left side writes
it down till midnight. If before that
time the man bows his head and exclaims,
' Gracious Allah ! I have sinned, forgive
me !' the angel rubs out the record ; but
if not, ho seals it, and the beloved anel
on the right shoulder weeps."
