Msny years have flown, dear sister,
Since thy spirit took is flight
To that land of white-robed angels,
To that land of pure delight.
Long, long tnonfha we named
From our happy earthly home;
All our hearts were filled with sadness,
Yet thou seemed bat gone to roam.
Every New-Year's eve, dear sister,
I must alt and think of thee,
For un such a one thou lett us, •
To glide across that dark wide sea.
A inn years, on earth thou lingered,
Still how strong the love-cords twined,
For when severed, hearts seemed broken
Th4t time,ne'er again could bind. , .•
oh! how noiseless did that angel
Enter our bright home of peace ;
Bear away thc fairy darling,
God had given but as a lawn.
There at sad and solemn twilight
Or that old, that dying yitr,
We received thy . parting!'good night," !
That we never more stallhear.
In his arms the angel bore thee,
Far away to God above,
Where his care and tender mercies
Are far more than earthly love.
,When the New Year's morn in beauty '
Ilawned noon oar taai varied even, • •
Thou hadst found a home Of glory,
In that mansion in the skies.
And in springtime's dewy mornings
Do I wander to the, grave,
With love's fingers twine the roses,
And with tears the myrtle lave.
Vast thus 'e'er reek down upon e,
From thy heavenly home afar?
Then o.,tain thy holy Station, -
Ever he my guiding star.

A BIILLEGITT FOR A WIPE.
We were English rm4d,mta'in Malaga, my sweet
Alice, her father, and myself, when a terrible mis
fortune assailed us. Mr. Croft, In one of his CX•
plorations as a naturallit, was seized upon by the
robber-chief Moreno, and conveyed to his fastttess
in, the mountains, from whence be demand ed ransom of rive thousand reals. No time was to he
lost: the audacious bandit. had named lime and
place of negotiation; If Alice's father was not re.
deemed on the following day, she would be orphaned
through toy neelret. I sought the British consul at
WS house. The sersant replied "Mr. Edwards has
gone to see the null tight." :To the bull ring I there
fore hastened at once, and having purchased a tiek'-t
which was to admit me to any part of the amphi
theater, elbowed my way throurli the swarmiref
crown, and entered. I had no eyes for the mass of
gay-colored apparel or the rows of eager, excited
faces, tier anoec tier, and still less for what was
140111 g on in the ring, where a young bull was being
goaded to fury by sharp tridents awl fluttAT'ing flags,
a mere prologue to the more thrilling scenes that
were to follow. Bat the crowd baffled toe. Such
multitudes from the neighboring towns and villages,
attracted by the speetacle, had poured into lialap,
that It was only for the ladies, and a favored few of
the magistrucy and nobles, that seats could be ra
mmed. The rest stood to thickly massed together
that I soon found that to trace out Mr. Ed ward
was hopeless. giving up the effort in despair, I
turned to depart, but through some mistake, instead
of gaining the open air I struck. Into.n long p.ssage
leading I knew not whither, though I beard the
bellowing of the bulls from the dens where they
were shut up. Suddenly, from • sort of crypt, the half
open door of which wan on my right,-.tame the
sound of 'eniees, and I caught three words in Span

the fury of the thousands up yonder when they hear
that Manuel 4.gal cannot perform at all,. and that

" If Viejdlot had but had the ;sense to-brink hie

but who, even fur four thousand teals, would face

"Maki t the reward dye thousand mats, and I am
your man, noble senores," said I. with sudden reso
lution, emerging tom my tilding-place. Had I risen,
like a theatrical spectre, through a trap door, my
appearance could not have created greater counter.
nation. The corregldor was the Brat to recover his
enninimitv. He knit Ills heavy brown Into a dark
frown, and angrily demanded who I might be.
"Henry West, British subject, mute of the ship
Tudor, now In port," was my answer, "ready to be
your matador to-day, if you will raise the pay to
five thousendjusla." .
An animated dlicuselotV then took place. The
idea of a sailor, ab Englishman, undertaking the
dill cult and perilous task of bull-killing—for the
matador, as Is well know; Is the only person ex
posed to rent danger—seemed absurd. sßut then, it
wasshrewdly.olaseteved by Due Ramon, the alealde,
If I i'hbsc to' et gored to death it was no concern
of theirs, and the cstastrophe would at leant put the
people In good humor But the worthy insgistrate
was reluctant to give so much as five thousand rinds.
ift woteld.accept three thousand, or even four?
lint I was firm. Five thousand or nothing were
my terms, and as the mob began to get very noisy
and impatient, the bargain was struck An agree
ment was hastily written and signed by the aicalde,
and a cheque for the money was drawn and en•
trusted to tae master of the shows, to be handed to
me when I should have earned ft As I traced my
signature on the paper I felt that I was bartering my
own life and blood to eaves Alice's father. That five
thousand reels would be his ransom. But I had lit
lie time to meditate, for I was hurried MT to another
room, and there bidden to assume, as quickly as
possible, the gay costume of a matador, and in the
Mean time the magistrates hastened to their places,
and the master of' the shows went on the somewhat
awkward errand of ell:darting to the multitude that
Manuel Zagai had broken his I.lr, nod th et -a tyro
wonld take his duties on himself.
Frotu the dark little chamber in which I was oc
cupied, clumsily enough, In exchanging my own
clothes for the gaudy Andalusian suit which was
a necessary adjunct of rte character I had assumed,
I could now and then catch the sound of the man
ager's voice, as in oily accents he addressed the en
lightened audience of his patrons. At first, his
Speech elicited much noisy disapprobation., but
presently laughter and cheers drowned the or
ation, and wnen he came back he wiped his fore
head with an air of self-congratulation. The audi•
cure hail been raitorid to good humor. They had
been testy and lrritable,,the manager told me, as he
lent me hitt practised 40d . _ Ea %dressing, until he re
minded them, that, at the worst they had never
seen an - Englishman killed, and might look out for a
novel excitement. "I told them, St Martin forgive
me, that you were the first toreador In all London,
nod bad come to Spain to challenge our best Bull
fighters to a contest of skill," continued the man,
and then bade me look at myself in the trines. I did
so, hut hardly recognized myself, an mach was my
appearance changed by the embroidered Jacket, t he
slashed calzonellios, the many colored silken each,
inn scarf heavy with silken fringe, and all the lace,
bell bettors, and frippery of my costume. The
master of the shows eyed me mitlealiy, from th,
broad leaved sonibrvnl with lie red plume and golden
cord, down to-the puruge and silk ith.ChilllCS which
are me::-..santial to a tnatador as to a ma-ter of the

"Cheerup, comrade," mill he; "keep cool, avoid

muttering with eann, , thing of genuine satisfaction in
his tone, "Thnee island maottlli! a tnngli breed !"
He then conducted me to a nook whence I conld

followed the bidding of impulse in what 1 had done,
cud now, as I l o oked around, and remembered that
the thousands of apeetators would gloat over my dy
dog agonies as greedily 04 over those of the brute
vlctirna of their cruet sport, I realized the lull danger
of my positkin. But I quieted my apprehen-ious
.by the thought of Mice. It was for her dear sake,
to earn her father's ransom, that I was crouching
where I was, and in this rummer's garb, waiting
till I should be called forth, like a gladiator of the
old p.,gan day., to redden the sand of the hull ring
with my blood. F. , of escape from serious Injury
had little hope. I knew that very few even of the

him with squibs and darts, when pain and fury re

throwing tits cloak over the hull's horns, plunged
the sword Into his neck. He fell, and the audience

HOW TO PREVENT A DIVOROE
When the senior Jcnathan Trumbull was Govern

Squire W. returned the salutation, adding as he did
" I have called upon a very unpleasant errand,
sir, and want your advice. My wife and Ido not

divorce. What do you advise, air?"
The Governor sat a few moments, In deep thought,
then turning to Squire W., weld " How did you
treat litre. W. when you ware courting her? and
how did you feel towards her at the time of your

time." " Well, air," said the Governor, "go home
and court her now just as you did then, and love
her no when you married her. Do this In the tear of
God fur one year, and then tell mu the moult." The
Governor then said, " Let us pray." They bowed
in prayer and separated. When a year had passed

I have seen Si X men taken from thirty tn this house

From this I was transferred to spinning filling, and
then In Fabruary, 1853, to weaving hemn-sacking for
sacking cotton. This usually weighs one and a half

It had always been the custom of the keepers to
allow any man to enjoy the privilege of credit in the

deposlted by his friends, and of writing to his friends
at stated times. Of all these I was deprived. My

that no one loved me ; then I would resist. Often,

Within the memory of many Persons still alive,
" old Girard," as the famous banker was usually
styled, a short, stout, brisk old gentleman, used to
walk in his swill, awkward way, the streets of the
lower part of Philadelphia. Though everything
about him indicated that he had very little In com
mon with his fellow-citizens, be was the marked
man of the city for more than a generatiOn. His as
pect was rather insignificant and quite unprepoa
erasing. His dress was old-fashioned and shabby ;
and he wore the pig -tall, the white 'neck-cloth, the
wide-brimmed hat, and the large skirted coat of the
last century. He was blind in one eye; and though
his burly eye-brows gave some character to bis
countenance, it was curiously devoid of expression.
lie had also the absent look of a man who either had
no thoughts or was absorbed in thought ; and he
shuffledliong on his.encmnons feet, looking neither
to the right nor to the left. There was always a cer
tain look of the old mariner about him, though he
had been fifty years an Inhabitant of the town.—
When he rode it was in the plainest, least comfort
able gig In Philadelphia, drawn by an ancient and I
ill formed horse, driven always by the master's own
hand at a good pace. He chose still to live where
he bad lived for fifty years, in Water stree#, chase to
the wharves, in -small and Inconvenient house,
darkened by tall store-houses, amid the bustle, the
noise, and the odors of commerce.
His sole pleasure was to visit once a day a little
farm which he possessed a few mites out' of town,
where he was wont to take off his coat, roll up his
shirt-sleeves, and personally labor In the field and In
the barn, hoeing corn, putting trees, tossing hay,
and not disdaining even to midst in bntehering the
animals which he raised for market. It was no mere
ornamental or experimental farm. He made It pay.
MI of its produce was carefully, day, scrupulously
husbanded, sold, recorded and accounted for. He
loved his grapes, his plums, his pigs, and especially
his rare breed of canary bi rds; but the people of
Philadelphia had the toll benefit of their increase—at
the highest market rates. Many feared, many served,
but done loved this singular and lonely old man. If
there was among the very few who habitually con
versed with him, one who understood and esteemed
him, there was bat one; and he was a man of such
abounding charity, that, like Uncle Taby,lf he had
heard that the devil was hopeltsely damned, would
have said, "I om aorry for It" Never was there a
person more destitute than Girard of the qualities '
which win the affection of others. His temper was
violent, his presence forbidding, his usual manner
ungrucion., his will Inflexible, his heart untender,
his Imagination dead. He was odions to many - of his
fellow citizens, who considered him the hardest and
meanest of men. He had lived among them for half
a century, but he was no more a Philadelphian in
MO than In Intl He still spoke with a French ac
cent, and accompanied his words with a French_
shrug and French gesticulation. Surrounded wit
Christian churches which he had helped to build, he
remained a sturdy unbeliever, and possessed the
complete works of only one man, Voltaire.?
He made It a point of duty to labor on Sunday, as
good example to others. He made no secret of the
fact that he considered the idleness of Sunday an in
jury to the people, moral and economicaL Ile
would have opened his bank on Sunday, if any one
would have come to it For his part he required no
rest and would have none. He never travelled. Ile
never attended ruhlic assemblies or amusements.—
He had no affections to gratify, no friends to visit,
uo curiosity to appease, n., tastes to indulge. What
ho once said of himself appeared to be true, that he
rose In the morning with but a single object, and
that was to labor so hard all day as to. be able to
sleep all night. The world was absolutely nothing
to him buta working place. He scorned and scout
ed the Idea that old men should cease to labor, and
should spend the evening of their days in tranquil
lity. " No," he would say, "labor is the price of
life, its happiness, its everything t to rest is to rust;
every man should labor to the last hour of his abil
ity ." Such was Stephen Girard, the richest man
who ever lived in Pennsylvania.
This is an unpleasant picture of a citizen of polite
and amiable Philadelphia. It were indeed a grim
and dreary world, wherein should prevail tbe prin
ciples of Girard. But see what this man has done
for the city that loved him not! Vast arid imposing
structure's rise on the banks of the Schuylkill, where
in, at this hour, six hundred poor orphan boys are
fed, clothed, trained and taught, upon the income of
the enormous estate which be won by this entire
consecration to the work of accumulating property.
In the ample grounds of Girard College, looking up
at its five massive marble edldees, st rolling In Its
shady walks or by Its verdant piny grounds. or lis
tening to the cheerful erns of the boys at play, the
most sympathetic and imaginative of men must
pause Moro eensuring the sterile and unlovely lite
of ite founder. And it he should inquire closely ki
te the character and career of the man who willed
this great institution into being, lie would, perhaps,
be willing to admit that there wee room in the world
for one Girard, though it were a pity there should
ever be another.
Kueh en inquiry would, perhaps, disclose that
Stephen Girard was endowed by nature with a great
heart as well as a powerful mind, and that circum
stances alone closed and hardened the one, cramped
amt perverted the other. It is not impsobablet that
he wee one of those unfortunate beings who desire
to be loved, but whose temper and appearance com
bine to rept-1 It. Tote marble statue of him, which
adonis the entrance to the principal building, if it
could speak, might say to ns, " Llvingi you Could
not understand nor love me; dead, I. compel,- at
least, your rta<pect. • " indeed, he need to say, Waal
questioned as to his career, " Wait till I am dead;
my deeds will show what I was . ."—North Amerfenn
