THE BIANLIEST MAN.
The manliest man of all the race,
Whose heart is open as his taco,
Puts forth his hand to help another,
'Tis not the blood of kith and kin,
'Tis not the color of the skin ;
'Tis the heart that beats within,
Which makes the man a man and broth
His words are warm upon his lips,
His heart beats to his finger tips,
He is a Mend and loyal neighbor ;
Sweet children kiss him on the way,
And the women trust him for they may,
He owes no debts ho cannot pay ;
He earns his bread with honest labor.
He lifts the fallen from the ground,
And puts his feet upon the round
Of dreaming Jacob's starry ladder,
Which lifts him higher, day by day,
Toward the bright and heavenly way,
And farther from the tempter's sway,
Which singeth like the angry adder.
He strikes oppression to the dust,
He shares the blows aimed at the just,
He shrinks not from the post of danger,
And, in the thickest of the fight,
He battles bravely for the right,
For that is mightier than might,.
Though cradled in an humble manger,
Hail to the mintiest man 1 he comes
Not with the sound of horns and drums.
Though grand as any duke, and grander ;
He dawns upon the world and light'
Dispels the weary gloom of night
And ills, like bats and owls take flight ;
He's greater than great Alexander.

BY BARBARA BACON
Charles Lamb has said that "the chil
dren of the very poor have no

old,grim,crazy looking house where I pass.
ed my ebildhood,for we had young times ;
and I knew nothing of poverty until I
was forced to leave it. I knew that our
landlord lived In a new house, and that
his daughter wore line dresses, but I Cot
no regret in the comparison ; for the
squire and his daughter lived alone, while
our house was alive with children ; and I
would not exchange the music of their
laughter, nor the patter of their darling
little feekfor the wealth of Creosote.
How 14.11 I remember the time that
Stephen DeGrey drove up to the door foe
the second time with his prancing horse&
He did not alight, but seeing my father
at the window, beckened him out.
"Where is the little black-eyed spirit I
saw here last week ?" he queried
"My Mary ?" returned my father.
"Yes, your Mary"
Then he threw the reins over the dash
er of his phaeton, and in his practical
way made my father what he termed a
"No doubt the child is comfortable
and happy here, but wouldn't it be wick
ed to let such an uncommon _chance go
by ?" I heard him say.
'Mary 1" called my father, and I went
"Would you like to go to Tangle• Brier
to live ?" be said, patting me lovingly on
"Andyou, and mother and the chil
dren ?" Tasked.
"No ; you alone."
"No, indeed, air."
"What, not ride away in this handsome
carriage, and dress like your beautiful
cousin Amy ?" said lir. DeGray. "Beau
tiful as the day, and, wi dull as thunder,"
be added, in a lower tone.
"Ob, no,' sir."
And then' feeling a great stirring be
hind my eyes, and disliking to show my
tears,' tall in. Soon after I heard Mr.
DeGrey drive, away. tcrept out of my
bidiug-place only to find a group of sad
faces. There I read my verdict. I was
going to leave everything I Rived. Ste
phen DeGrey had discovered in a previ
ous visit that I could learn (as he expres
sed it) "with My eyes slint,"and pc.:11;7...14
the idea ilia I t„igist -be of use to his
only (laughter, whose lack of brilliancy
was a mirk:- of constant worriment to
her indulgent. father. .
Shall I ever ferget the lit time that
we gathered about the tea-table in that
homely old kitchen. or the dainties that
sunlebow'my "mother managed to provide
becanse it was the last meal. • A.b, me,
how hard I tried to hide my„ tears because
so many eyes
• were full. How, in spite of
every effort'dnmy 'Part, my ood seem- i"
"Stand by the Hight though the Heavens SIM"
choking me to death. I remember that
I left the table, and knelt beside the dy
ing embers on the hearth. I can feel the
tender touch of my father as he lifted nap
upon hia knee. I glanced for an instalit,
into hie eyes; tears fell upon my upturn
ed face ; the sight was more than my
heart, already full, could hear ; a sob, sad
and full, sounded in every part of that
dismal old kitchen. I laid my head upon
his breast and cried all the bitterness out
of my heart.
Just as the short winter afternoon
closed in Mr. DeGrb.y returned ; a hat
(reader, it was by no means lovely) was
tied with trembling fingers under my
quivering chin, and amidst tears, bless—
ings, and farewells, I rode away.
When we had reached the bend in the
road I looked back • my mother was still
watching at the wicket.
Full of trouble and so excited,' scarce•
ly knew what I did. I laid my hand on
Mr. DeGrey's shoulder and wade a vow.
"God sparing my life until my head is
growm in wisdom, my heart in firmness,
and my shoulders shaped for the burden,
I will shrink from no sacrifice, be a cow.
and in no battle that will win comfort
and joy for those left behind l"
"How old are you?" asked Mr. DeGrey
HP gave a long wnistle. We rode in
silence for many hours, it seemed to me.
In fact, the night was far advanced when
we reached Tangle-Brier. The house
was the best, its furnishings the finest I
had ever seen, and In the midst of all
this splendor Mrs.DeGrey and her daugh
ter awaited our coming. I looked upon
Amy DeGrey's face of marvelous beauty,
and thought it the finest one in the world
but for a certain lack of expression I
should think so still, for never in nature
or urt have I seen anything Bo beautiful.
I was her companion for five years, shar—
ing with her every advantage.
Adjoining Tangle Brier was au old di—
lapidated, uninhabited mansion. Signs
of former granduer were still vieable.—
We used often to wander over its deserted
grounds, and imagine histories of its
predecessors. The former owner had
died abroad, and the heir of the estate
had never taken possession.
So I had lived at Tangle Brier three
years, and then Amy and I were sent to a
neighboring academy. Here, night after
nigh t,I studied with her the same lessons,
@be having, apparently, learned as per—
fectly as myself, but in chokes she was
never able db give a correct answer, She
could not retain.
When we had been at school nearly
three years Mrs. DeGrey wrote that the
present quarter would be our last. Mr.
DeGrey's business called him abroad, and
we were to finish our studies at home un•
der a private tuitor, she had already ad
vertised. In the same letter she told ns
that Maple Hill was to be brought to life
again ; repairs were going on, and its
owner was to take immediate possession.
Mrs. DeGrey had not seen Mr. Rivers,but
had been told that his wealth was great
and his state a bachelor.
"Do you know," said Amy, as she un
wound her beautiful hair, "that I'v al
ways imagined myself mistress of Maple
"Its owner may be an idiot," I answer
"What matters ? His wealth is fabu
lous ; you know papa has been unfortu—
nate of late, and it would be terrible to
be poor !"
I had been castle-building for years,
and reader, pardon me, the foundation
of my castles had been wealth. My
thoughts constantly reverting to my kin
dred, could,conceivp of no other plan. I
had lived at Tangle Brier long enough
to know that money was the corner stone
of that establishment, where everything
run smoothely, and all was peace.
t the close of the quarter we returned
home, Maple Hill was inhabited, and
Mrs. DeGrey's advertisement had been
••Strangest of all things!' said Mrs.
DeGrey, "the applicant is Mr. River'
agent; he having no present need of his
service, will treat with me for a tutor
"Engage him, mamma !" cried Amy.—
"In that way we shall see a great deal of
his lordship," meaning Mr. Rivera. "Let
us go over at once."
Mrs. DeGray readily assented, and we
started on foot for Maple Hill. In the
handsomest furnished parlor we awaited
Sir John, for Mrs. DeGrey was making
this a call of ceremony as well as business
Directly I heard the shuffling of half
paralyzed feet ; as the sound grew near
a half grunt, half groan was audible ; a
servant opened the door, and there enter
ed the mos:, perfect specimen of old age
it had ever been my lot to meet.
I looked instinctively at Amy, but law
no sign of disappointment. We arose ;
introductions took place ; and he greet
ed us cordially. During the next twenty
minutes he entertained ns with an ac
count of his diseases--five of which were
incurable—and having told us that he
was world worn and exhausted, conclud
ed by saying that he intended to marry
and settle down at Maple Hill.
The conversation turned, Mr. Rivers'
agent was mentioned. He spoke of him
in the highest praise as a gentleman and
scholar. He said, Mr. Gordon was about
to leave his service for no fault of his
own, hat for reasons which he could not
He pulled the bell cord as he spoke,
and the servant again appeared.
"Tell Mr. Gordon I wish to see him,"
When Rapheal Gordon entered the
room, Amy and her mother were so much
engaged with Mr. Rivers, - that I do not
think they heard the door open or close.
You would scarcely believe, to watch this
beauty, that she bad ever epoken to hall
a dozen gentlemen in her life. In fact
she displayed all the art of a woman of
the world in her mauceavers to make a
ITer efforts were not without eff'ct ;
for when he arose 'to introduce his agent
and make his adieus, he bent his trem—
bling head, and kissed Amy's band.
A thousand little shivers crept np my
spine. Amy smiled as though well satis
fied ; and having assured Mrs. DeGrey
that her call would be returned at the
earliest possible moment, Mr. Rivers hob
I can scarcely describe the' character
of Rapheal Go - rdon's looks, his supple
symmetry, his frequent smile: hie glen.
ous eyes, owe seen, could never be for
Amy tailed a great deal about Mr.
Rivers a pat deal in the days that fol—
lowed. "Ikbt so very young to be sure,
but such a; 72 iCE ola gentleman, Amy of
I rentuid to ask "what there was nice
about him" She pouted but would not
While we were chatting, an elegeht
carriage, drawn by a pair of spirited
horses, hilted betore the gate. I waited
until the driver opened the door ; the
identical "nice old gentleman" crept
out—then I went to my room.
Amy came to my room shortly. Mr.
Rivers had come to take the ladies out
would Igo ?
"Not to please me !" she presisted.
"Not to please the whole world.
In perhaps ten minutes, I heard the
hall door close, and looking out of my
window, I saw /lony enter the carriage,
followed by Mr. Ilivers.
I was more than surprised ; I was
thoroughly disgusted. She Caine into
my room two hours after, as talkative as
a magpie. "She had had such a delight •
ful ride, and Mr. Rivers said—"
I cut her short. "Don't, Amy, the
bare idea makes me sick !"
She went out muttering something, of
which I caught the word "envious" and
slammed the door.
The next week we commenced our
studdies. Who could not advance under
a tutor like Raphael Gordon ? Surely
one smile would repay hours of study.
We studied school•fashion. Regular
terms and regular sessions. As the first
(loader neared its close, Mrs. DeGrev
proposed an examination. All the young
people in the neighborhood were invited
to join us.
For the heat composition, Mrs. DeGrey
offered a prize—a pair of gold bracelets—
valued at ten pounds.
Then, with her whole might, she set to
work for Amy. Night' after night she puz
zled her brain over the paper that was to
pass as Amy's composition.
It was the night before examination. I
had read over he composition for the
last time, when Mrs. DeGrey tapped at
m y door.
"I've brought in Amy's composition,"
she cried, "I should like to compare it
I put my paper in her outstretched
hand, she read and returned it.
"Mary, has Mr, Gordon seen this ?"
I replied in the negative.
"Did any one know upon what subject
lon intended to write ?"
"No one in the world," I answered.
She drew hor chair closer. "Mary, if
you surrender all claims to this, I will
buy you a pair of bracelets that will
match the prize in beauty and value.
"They would not compare with my
dress nor station, and I do not want
o:ern." I said.
As I uttered these words a gro4n as if
from some one in pain, reached tny ear.
I listened. the sound was not r•peated.—
Mrs. DeGrey put into my hand . five crisp
ten dollar notes, and left the room.
The door closed, I took from my desk

Into this I tucked the ten pounds and
rotired. And next day Amy read my
composition as a production of her own.
She was welcome to the letter, and the
congratulations that followed, so far as I
vas concerned. The letter in my pocket
and the treat things I believed it would
do for the living inmates of a humble
dwelling far away, recompensed me more
than fame can ever.
There was one cloud in my sky, how—
ever. During my recitations I failed to
receive my usual reward ; my master's
smile and kindling eye. Anything but
to sse the face averted that had always
looked on me with more than kindness.
I hastened away after the exercises
were over, anxious to deposit my letter
before sight came on. When I retraced
my step twilight began to fall.
I was thinking over the events of the
day, and above all arose the fact of my
teacher's displeasure. "When I get back
he will be gone," I said "without one
look or word. Was it not enough that I
should b,. d prived of the daily presence
and site counsel of him I had learned to
love so well ?"
Thus I mused ; and there just in the
bend I saw him coming. I scarcely re—
m, tuber whist I said as we met. I raised
a troubled eye to his face, hoping to see
the old look again ; but no, he was still
mid and unnatural.
•'Jliss Deaue, what evil spirit possessed
Son that you Should go on for months
with the appearance of the best principles
and goad sense, and in the eleventh hour

"I never boasted of my principles or

am I to blame for other pepple's blun—
. "But you have abtldderea at the idea
of Amy being wedded to Mr. Rivers for
his wealth; and ;est night you were guil
ty of an act, which, if less frightful in
its consequences, is nt, more to be expect

how by a Might accident I found it out.—
Dropping my watch key from my breast
pocket, as I reached out to close my shut
ter, I hurried down to search for it ; and
there beneath your window I heard the
words that sent the blood to my heart
with a pain that blinded me Oh I Mary,
how could you ?"
In spite of his cutting wopds, I loved
him never so well. I took both his hands
in my own.
"You are mistaken, my dear sir, indeed
you are 1 I never possessed a pound be-

He gathered me in his arms. "God
bless you, Mary, love them all well ; only
tell me that I may come in for a share.—
Can you love me after such cruel words ?"
So it was settled then in the gleaming.
When I re-entered the souse out of which
I had gone with so little gladness, I was
Mr. Gordon's promised wife.
Three months later we were quietly
married ; and having decided that our
tour should take us among my kindred 1
thought my happiness complete.
The carria g e stood ready at the door:—
"We have an houryet, let us go over and
bid Mr. Rivers good bye."
As we approached the house Mr. Riv
ers and several of the servants came out
and waited upon the piazza to receive us.
Mr. Rivers led us into the house. Re
appeared very strange, and I thought he
had been taking too much champagne.—
He closed the door, and with a step as
youthful as my own, he came to me.
"Mrs. Gordon, the play Is played out,"
he said. "Raphael Gordon is the real
owner of Maple Hill, and I, plain John
Rivers, am his confidential agent and
firiend." lie handed me a package. "Mr.
Gordon has made over a part of his for—

Woman like I twitted my husband of
giving countenance to a he, and impos—

And oh ! the happy days that followed
in the old house at home. And no peace

One night last week a Whitehall gen
tleman was on the Troy train returning
home. At Sarato g a a• gentleman from
Rutland took a seat behind the White
hailer. In a few mt,ments a conversation
was opened bmween the two. Ascertain—

the Rutland gentleman asked him if he
knew Wilkins, the editor of the Times;
"Know him ! I ought to know him, for
he is very intimate with my wife."
"Yon don't say ?" replied the Rutland
man, in astonishment.
"Yes, sir. I don't went it repeated;
but, I have indisputable evidence that he
has been on terms of the closest intimacy
"But my friend, you don't live with the
"Yes, sir, strange as it may seem, I do.
Oh, sir, you little know what a man will
put up with from a woman he loves.—
This intimacy has been carried on tor
years right under my very nose, and yet,
by the love I bear the woman, I have
never yet broken with my wife."
"But you cannot possibly put up with
such conduct on the part of your wife ?
If she is intimate with Wi:kins, I should
think you world brand the villain before
the world. I would not submit. No,
sir'. I would not, never I" •
The Rutland man had worked himself
up to a pitch of excitement, when the.
train stopped at Whitehall.
"Good night, sir!" said the Whitehall
gentleman. "1 thank you for the inter.
est you have taken in my affairs," and the
:Two g: ntleman shook hands and parted.
Just then the conductor entered the
car, when the Ruthland man stepped up
and asked him who the gentleman was he
was conversing with.
"That man," said conductor Holcomb,
"don't you know him ? That is Wilkins
editor of the Whitehall Pmes."
"Sold, by gracious," said the Rutland
man, putting his finger into his pocket
and taking out something. "Mr. Con—

The trembling near-drop fall
Upon the shutting flowers—like soul's at
The stars shine gloriously—and all
Save me, k blest.

The violet, with the blossom blue and mild
Waves o'er thy head—when shall It wave
Above thy child f
'Tie a sweet flower—Tet must
Its bright leaves to the coming tempest

Dear mother—'tis thine emblem—dust
Is on thy brow
And 1 could love to die—
To leave untested life's dark bitter streams;
By thee, as erst In childhood, lie,
And share thy dreams.
And must I linger here,
To stain the plumage of my sinless years,
And mourn the hopes hi childhood dear
With bitter tears ?
Aye—mtNt I linger here,
A lonely branch ution a blasted tree,
Whose last trail leaf, untimely sere,
Went down with thee I
Oft from life's withered bower,
In still communion with the past I turn,
And muse OB thee, the only flower
In memory's urn.
And, when the evening pale
Bows like a murmur on the dim, blue
I stray to hear the night winds wail
Around thy grave.
Where is thy spirit down ?
I gaze above—thy look is imaged there—
I listen, and thy gentle tone
Is on the air.
Oh, come—while here I press
My brow upon thF grave--end, In those
And thrilling tones of tenderness,
Bless, bless thy child !
Yes, bless thy weeping child
And o'er thy urn—religion holiest shrine—
Oh, give his spirit undefiled

Parents often unconsciously injute their chil
dren by assuming that they arc actuated by
wrong motives. In very early life we learn that
others can know 'hut little about/our thoughts
and feelings. Therefore, it is not their preroga
tive to judge of our motives
Every one naturally wishes to be presumed
honest ; and if we know that such is the pre
sumption respecting us, it is comparatiiely dif
ficult for us to indulge or act out our depravity.
But if We find that we are presumed to be dis
honest—if it is to be taken for granted that we
intend wrong•-the first impulse of a depraved
heart is pretty sure to be wrung. And a child
is as sensitive to such injury as any one. Let
him imbibe the notion that his parents habitu
ally suspect him of mischief, and they are cer
tain to provoke him to wrath, and actually in
duce him to eommit mischief. of which he had
never before conceived. The teeling of his
young and wicked heart is very likely to be
"Well, since I am thought no better of, I have
no inducement to be any better, and, therefore,
will be no better. I might as well find some
enjoyment, and if I cannot have any credit
where I do try to do right, I will just abandon
such effort, and give loose reins to my passions
and secure encl.' pleasure as I can." Many a
child, it is feared, has thus become wayward,
and undesignedly turned aside from the path
of virtue by his dearest earthly guardians and

al affection is sure to work mischief in the
heart of a child. It is love which moves the
heart more than a sense of duty. We discharge
our duty to our friends, not so much because It
Is a duty as a pleasure. It is love, not duty,
which causes a fond mother to watch with un
remitting anxiety over the couch of her sick
Love to God and love to man com
mends itself to the Inman mind• as the correct
fundamental principle of action ; and the very
little child soon instinctively knows and feels
Its force long before he can define and analyze
it. He knows and feels that it Is what a par
ent owes to him. At any rate, no one can ap
preciate it better where it is exercised towards
Well now,let the child obtain the notion
that such a feeling for him in a parent's heart
has been displaced by a predominating selfish
ness—let the child imbibe the idea that the pa_
eat, in all his requirements, is actuated by his
own self gratification, rather than by any pe•
culler. and fond affection—and he feels that the
parent, as such, is worthy of no special recipro
city of regent. Ranee. his commands, us -pa
rental, are , spurned, and the child is provoked
to wrath. to think that one absulci thus presume
to 'act a parent's part. Every child's heart
yearns for a parent's affection to meet his
wants; and If it is met with nothing hut the
cold demands of' a Sordid self interest, it must
suffer a sad repulse. Under such circumstances
a Child may be induced to obey from fear, while
he cannot do Otherwise ;..but• lid can never love
to obey with the proper .11391111k9 of. ashild. It
can neier , be his pleasure , to do a parent's will..
He may obey ono because he is his toaster; but
he can never obey biro becaaie he is his parent.
Fe there is no ground for the'reciprocity of
'fond, parental, and filialnifeetion.
It is worthy of remark that the, obligations
of percale and children are mutual. The obli
gation is not all OD ono side. , it Is not .simply
the duty of the child to., obey. ; neither is it the
"sole diets of, the parent to' exact obeditmee,,aud,
at the same.time, of the child to obey, the pa--
rent owes it to his child to : secure his obedience
in a manner not needlessly to provoke. hi

has netrolro right to meke inmself a despot to

either omnlpetent , or irresponsible towards Ida
It is well; also, for ; parents , to consider how
Much of their children's disobedience an : d 'way
wardness is justly chargeable upon , themselVm.
It's true the child, as Well is the parent, must
be hold accountable for Ms OWIL sin yet We
must remember that we are so constituted as
easily to Involve one another In sin.; and the
nearer the relations which we sustain In life,
the greater the danger of involving one another
In transgression. In case of the little child,who o
it may be, willingly goes to the public house to
get his father's bottle filled witti intoxicating
drink, who is most to blatie, the chid or the
intemperate father who sembi bunt Itistinct

is thrown Into a pet by the angry look, tone, or
manner of the patent, who is most to blame ?
Ought not such ,
questions to modify the peat
stone, to secure more patience, consistency, and
love, from parents, in all their dealings with
their children ? •
Finally, let parents reflect upon the criminal
ity and cruelty of provoking their own child
ren to wrath. It is melancholy enough to think
of exciting such a hateful passion in any one**
breast, but much more so in the breast of be
loved child. Let every parent shudder at the
thought. Wrath—angef—wtuit is if? Ain es
sential element of a demon ! What should we
think of a man who would carelessly eiposo
his children to vipers, reptiles, savage beasts of

For this purpose, bunehes of live coral, always
found along the shores of the lalande, are trans-,
ported to the oyster bed—care being taken not
to keep the corals out of water above an hour,
as the polyps cannot survive long in the air.—
The oyster bed. generally in a creek, is paved
with the corals, placed not lower than three
feet under the surface. This done the space hi
walled in and divided into compartments for
the convenience of separating the opium ac
cording to their ages, and also that they may
be easily examined by persons walking along
on the partitions. Oysters not law than e,

found in shallow places along the wait: They
must not be pulled from the stone or other ma
terial to which they are attached by a Menke
of filaments or hair, called a hisses. Brought
to the bed, they. are loosely arranged in rows,
with the byssus turned toward the current.—
After a twelvemonth the oyster will have
grown from the size of a saucer to, that of a
plate. Beyond this it • does not ordinarily im

end of three years, its lining of mottier-of-peatl
