Pure as the Surnther flowers,
Are with us - etill to make the earth
Full of those happy hears. , -
Earth's later.seenes when time .has sped,
And brought some loved ode near, - •
The whispering of whose brightest word •
Was happiness to hear; •
The echo of whore footsteps. nigh
Like Spring-lime to the bowers ;
Or bird and blossom to the tree -
'Fill'd earth with happy hours.
And then the mother's gladsome

The loveliest 'neath the skies—

For heaves is bending down to bring

Using a Thole Egg:
A friend told us . a•story a few days since'
illustrating theftee, generona charneter . of the
Irish, which We consider too good tobelost,
and• therefore, give it. to our rkder4."
- -Our frientrs wife .I,eing in delieate health,
it was resolved.-that a girl shouk he proenr;t4l
to do the housework, - that the • lady tni•4l:t
have an opportunity to recover Let
and spirits. -
After visiting an intelligence office for two
or three thornings,n fine buxomlass of about
20 years of age; "but six monthS from swate
Ireland ;"."was selected and instructed as to
,the duties that would be expected of her. ,
"Now, then," • saYs the lady; "pour the
ground cotlceinto the - pot, then pour in the
hotivater and after-boiling, put, in one half
of an eg , 7, so;" and the lady illustrated each
description by demonstration. " You under
stand, don't you ?"-says the lady. • - • •
" Intlade I do, mum," was the respthise;
bil the coffde, - grind -it the wather, ..and
dro in the half of an egg. Isn't that it, now,
ctll right," replied the lady.. " Now, then,
tomorrow morning we'll see how well you
remember it." -
To-morrow morning came, and the coffees
was as good as 'could be expected. The
third morning dune, and:to the astonishment
of our friend and wife, the coffee was undrink
able and nauseating, even the ordor of it was
sickening. Bridget was called and. ques
tioned, as follows: •
• ‘,l3ridgo i .dicl you first pUt the ground in
the 'coffee pot !"
" Indade I •- -
"Did ou then put in the hot - water r
ihmilong did.you let it boil ?"
Zll , l ,-.);s do, - then ?". •
"I put iu tile i.g;.!.; mum." • - •
"Justns Ishowed you this morning?" .
" Well, 'to tell.ye tho truth, mum," says
Bridget, giving her garments a twitch% with
her brawnyltand, "to 'tell ~ye the truth, ,I
would hake put, in the ha!f.ov the egg, as, yo
tould ine,l;but the egg was a lind -one,: and
I thoughti!ye wouldn' t mind about Lapin, the
