High on the beach bit gnlleyt drew,
And feasted all hit pirate erew

Where shields and ates decktd the wall,

Whllt round, in bruital Jest, wert thrown
Tht hslf gnawed rib and marrow bone,

While soolilt yelled oat the joyt ot ngni.
Then forth lu fremy would they hie.
While wildly loose tnetr red locks fly,

They make such barbarous mirth the while,
Ae best might lo the mind recall
The bviitsrout Jays of Odiu't ball.
And well our Christian siret of old
Loved when the year lie oourtt had rolled,
And brought blitbt Christmas back again,
With all lis hospitable train.

Uave honor tt tht bolr night ;
On Christmat eve the bells wert rung
On Christmas tvt tht mass was lung ;
That rnly night in all tbt year,
Saw the etolvd priest the chalice rear.
The damsel donned ber kirtle sheen ;
The ball wat dressed with holly green ;
Forth to tht wood did merry-uon go,
To gather in the mistletoe.
Then opened wido the barnn't hall
To vassal, tenant, serf, and all (
Power laid bis rod of rule aside,
And Ceremony doffed bit pride;
The heir, with roses in his shoes,
That night might village partner ehoott ;
The lord, underogating, tti'irt
The vulgar gaino of ' post aid pair.
All bailed with unconlrolltil tiougui
And general vo'uo tho happy night
That to the cottage, at tho orowu,
Drought tidings of salvation down.
Tht fire, with well-dried logt supplied,
Went roaring up tho chimney wide ;
The liufre hall table's eukeu f.ice.
Scrubbed till it shone the day to gi'toe,
Dime then tipou in massive board
No mark to part the tiiuiro and lord ;
Then wns brought in the lusty brawn,
Uy old blue-coat serviug-man ;
Thun the grim boar's bend frowned on high
Crested with bayt and rosemary.
Well can the green -garbed raiignrtvll
How, when, and where the monster fell ;
Whet dogs before bit death be tore,
And all the baiting of the boar,

Uarnisbcd with ribbous, blithely trowlt,
Then tht hugt sirloin retked ; bard by

Nor fiilod old Scotland lo produce
At tucb high tido, hertavory goose.

And carolt rolled with blithesome din,

I havo never boon oonrieled of
murder, neither am 1 prodispoicd to
suicide, but audi another night as the
lat will drivo mo to the refuge of tho
silent grave. I muit uwkcacenQlunt
of some ono, or go crazy. This U
just the war the matter elands. My
Histor-in-low has a baby 4 very ntco
baby the nioost baby you over saw.
Il is ol the feminine pimuisiou. In
an unlucky moment I eanie to my
brother's houso, to stop over night,
and found tbo family in great tribu
lation. There was to be a great ball
aad they wanted to go ; but there is
an uowarantnblo prejudice implanted
in the huima broast against babies in
sleeping-cars, publio performsocoi and
balls, on J hence the troublo. An un
Incky hint, thrown out by myself,
brought down judgment upon me,
and my well known giol nature bro't
wrath on my derotod Load. Thoy
went to tho ball, and I stayed to tond
that baby. Sho looked io demure,
and I was imposed upon by tho moth
er's hypocritical assertion, that "she
was just tbo bott baby In tho woM,
and would sleep like a lamb all night,"
that I looked upon the matter with
cheerfulness, and tbe rosult hardly
justified the enoomlumi of tbe fond
Lot mo eay, at this point, that from
this time I distrust the words ofyouog
mother with regard tothoir offspring
With the beat of motives, tboy are
liablo to be deooived, as In thit ease.
For a time that troaoborous infant
behaved gloriously. Sho sat upon
the floor, surroandod by a misoellane
ous collection of toys, and I, with the
eveniog paper and a fragrant Havana
derated roy feet oa the dining room
table, and began to ool y nmolf. In
the middle of a bitter editorial nrti
ele, I bocamo aware of a sniffling
sound at my foot, aod looking down,
toy charge was observed to bj rubbing
bar eves vigorously, giving utterance
to the miffs which bad called my at
teotion. I took her up, and trio! to
read. Vain ofiVt I that terrible in
fanl mid frantio plucks at the paper,

uiitntion of the way io which I had
soon b.tbiei htodltd. Perhaps I did
uol da it right. I am eorlaio that tho
effect was not good ; for even at I
walked, a a J atinj hih and wild,
abort tho musical tonts of my roicJ

The eyelids ware drooping, and she
lay silent, with her heal upon my

and floe the country. I havo passe

til cotubinod wore unal loytd happiness

was sitiiug up in bod, rooking thut

'Thee have I loved dearly,

Tho long uight of agony pused. I
could have endured it nil; but that

Re-Vaccination On this sub.

1). Wood speaks as follows ia his
Practice of Medicine, Vol. 1, piges
401G-T, edition of ISO1 : "This op
eration should be oraployed in every
onso which has nol been tested by
exposure to small pox contagion du
ring sn cpidemlo preralonoo of tho
diteaso. It mar bo asked whether
vaccination should bo employed ''in
persons previously affected with the
small pox. I should unhesitatingly
answer tbe quotation In tho alurmutive.
(that been before statod that, though
fewer persons, are attacked with vari.
oloid after inoculation of natural small
pox than after vaccination, yot a
greater number perish. Ibe same
proteetion that a second vaccination
extends in one case will prebably bo
extended by vaccination in tht othor,
and is even more needed, at least so
far at life is coocornod. It U goocrally
stated in tbe books that vaccina
tion after small pox produces liltlo or
no offjet. My own observation has
boon exactly tbe rovcrso. In conclu
ding this subject I would again strong
ly urge the propriety of universal rc
vaccination, at the meant not only of
promoting the oornfoi t and posatLly
of saving tbe lifo of the individual,
but itlto of preventing the spread of
small pox and of ustimatoly ertdlea
ting it, if net from the globe, at least
from extensive communities.1'
