Great God ! under the coffin lid
Must our fad and form b hid t
Are none saved frrm lb cursed (in.
Thai bind our fellows lo shevel us In
A human clo ls down andcr lb ground,
Away from light, away from souud ?
Aye, lake thy loved lo thy heart to-diy,
For to-morrow may speed him awsy.
Look at lb beautiful broad while brow,
Where Iby lip pres so tenderly now,
Ere many moons I lie lips ef Death
O'er that brow shall trail bl breath.
Look thou well on lb (oft hair atrands
Ho often and gently eirrssed by thy hands:
'n little while grave-worms will creep
Where the lovely wavelets sleep.
Oaie long an.l fondly into the eyo
Whose loveligut for the ctii never die;
A few more day end its glow will be hid
Cold and dark 'neatb the coffin lid.
Tenderly, lovingly smooths thi face.
Coax the smiles from Ibeir hiding place ;
For soon the smile and the faee will fade
Into the gloom that death his ma le.
Tightly presa Ibe lip to Ibine,
Thai soMy wlii.per, "Thou art mine!"
Ere long they'll cold and silent be,
Crushed by the last agony.
Gently on iby throbbing breast
Lei the tired head now rest ;
Dark and cold will be his bad,
Strangers o'er the turf will trend.
Closely around the life entwine
That flushes tho warm life blood lo Ibine ;
In a little while no puis will beat
In the bosom neaih Ihe winding sheet.
Wildly, sweetly lint life lo Ihre Use,
Till Ihe citiv'ring depths of the soul awake;
For aoon Ihe shroud will fold him round
In his dreamless sleep beneath Iho mouu I.
flod of Heaven ! will nothing savo
Our loved from a foul and hideous grav ?
nin an J sutler, suitor and sin.
Till the whole world is sliiilllccl in !

Though 'taint much more'n a tear ;

With a double-up sorter buck,

Used lo be round selli n' paper
Tho enrs there was his lay.
But he gut shoved oH tho plutforiu,
Under the wheels, one day.
Yes, the conductor did it
O.tve biin a reg'lnr throw
He didn't uure it he killed him ;
Some on 'cm is jmi so.
He's never been all right since, sir,

Trouble I guess not mneh. sir.
Sometimes when hit gets sluck,
I don't know how I'd stand it

Why, boss, you oulit lo hear him,
He says we needn't earo
How rjugh luck is down bete, air,

How be livei or how he dosen'l,

How he spends his time of leisure,

incensed mo that, not thinking of tbo
consequences, I rushed at him and
quickly gave him a sound drubbing,
took his club uui pistol from him, to

and darted down a side Mreet, sa 1
saw several more policemen coming,
and I didn't want ihe troublo of ha

1 was waited upon that evening by
the same policeman who called oo me
before, and he demanded the articles

I only took the tbiugs so I oould iden

it so resetr-bled one that I bad ouco,

to .ook it for that reason. The brute
of a policeman took th tbiugs, and
then gar me a moral lecture, which
I cut short bv hurling lb spittoon at
his bead, though luckily for him it
missed him, and made a great stain
on tbo wall, ond I had to pay for a
