Its voyagers of all ages, ..-'
- They bail frees every clime ; . .
U has iu lights and shadows,
'Tie fraught with hope and fears.
Some ere it in a moment.
Some only cross in years. ,.
We're floating deem the river ;
At first it seems so wide
That our frail barks can never
Land on the other tide ; '
The trip seems one of pleasure, -
We've nothing now to fear.
No tempest ean beset at
While skies are fair and clear.
We're floating dawn the river ; ,
As further on we go
The stream appears more narrow.
The waters faster flow ;
We're looking out for dangers
That he on every tide.
Our watchword it it "Onward,"
As down the stream we glide.
We're floating down the river ;
1 hen we've been on it for years
And cast our glances backward.
It but a ttep appears ;
The watert now are deeper,
The bottom loat to view.
Where once the boats were many.
They are scattered bow, and few.
We're floating down the river
As others have before.
Oft timet a boat will leave na
And strike out fot the shore.
And then our journey onward
More lone and sad is found.
One comrade less to cheer us.
At we are homeward bound.
We're floating down the river ;
Some time our turn will come '
To launch out from the others,
And set our sails for borne.
And when shall coins that summons
From shores beyond our view,
O may our boats be ready

Joe Bunker's Courtship.
A TAI.E OF A BAG OF CEAX3.
There was a body met a body
In a bag .if Iteans,
Can a body tell a h.ly
What a body means ? Old Sang.
Everybody in the county of Kssex ha
heard of Joe Bunker, and the qnips and
cranks by liitu enacted. In truth, he was
a famous fellow in bis day, so noted for
hu bushwacking rusticity of breeding
that hia name bat pushed into a proverb
and made him immortal. Joe Bunker's
character it now regarded by all the old
crones and pogsips in the northeast cor
ner of Massachusetts as the beau ideal of
a genuine unsophisticated Yankee clod
hopper His fame for ten miles round the country ran
And all the old ladies called him a queer man.
Tie was the first man in these parts
that ever picked bis teeth with a wooden
shoe. Various other fashions introduced
by him are in the remembrance of many,
but it is not onr purpose to specify them.
Tbe story of bis conrubip and the bag
nf beans is not so common. It runs
It was sometime in the month nf April
or May, or at any rate, just at tbe time
of planting beans of all the days in the
year nf a Sunday, that Joe being at
meeting, spied Colonel Shute's daughter
Hannah It was in prayer time (they
make terrible long prayers in that part of
the country), and Joe wa hanging over
the pew door in about the shapes of a fiz
ure, tired to death and wriggling himself
ahnnt in as awkward and slouching a
fashion as could well be imagined. Joe
linked at Hannah, and Hannah looked
at Joe. It is pr- tty certain that tbe lit
tle hedgehog Cupid shot off a pair of his
quills at the same instant, for Hannah
was struck with a very queer sensation
and as for Joe, be felt something which
be could not exactly describe except by
saying that it was a kiud of an all-over
This is all we happen to know of the
first item in tbia chapter of accidents
The next morning Joe lay in bed so long
that his father began to grumble, and
presently bis mother carao tip stairs.
"Come, Joe." sad she, "get np and
go to planting your beans."
"I can't V said Joe ; ' I am sick "
"Sick ? What's the matter with yoa 1
What ails you I ' , ' .
"Why I don't know what ails me, nor
I dou't want to tell." . m
"Don't want to tell I a fiddleetick ;
let na know w Lai it ia." ., ..
Joe bid bis face under tbe blanket for
some time, aud at last blubbered out, "I.
want to go and see the Colonel's Han-
Down goes the old woman and reports
procevdiug to ber husband.
What ' said old Banker, "be to go tee
tbe Colonel's Hannah ! tell him to
come instantly and plant his beans."
The old waman runs back and tells this
But Joe was hard to work upon. He
was granite : be wss adamant ; there
was no softening him, no moving him.
Ton might as easily nave shouldered
Oldtown HiU from its foundation as have
made him start a peg. .
"I wou't go to planting beans ; I will
go aud see Colonel's Hannah ",
This was all she could get out of him
and so she paddled off again to her hna
baal. . "Raallif. Mr. Bunkt-r, there's no get
ting Joe to mind ; be says he won't go to
planting beans nor touch Uiem ; and be
will go to see tbe Colouel's Uanuah.
Now do let the pqor boy have his way
f ir once j remember jou was once a
young mau yourself."
J'hia was bringing matters home, alid
old Bunker, though be was no logician.
nor imagined how the thing' could be
roved iu Baralijt'jn or Ferilo. Jet hu
thought tbe reasoning so pat to the pur
pose that be fairly yielded.
Well, well, let biui take Djbbou aud
go, but not stay long "
"But," said Joe, on hearing tLid, 'I
won't go without I can go graivl. aud I
won't have old Dobbin." . So 1F goes
the old U'ouiau once moie with this in
telligence. "Well, then," says old Bunker. he
may go grad , and let bim (ike old
"But I won't ride upon old Bob." eaid
Joe; "I II have I'ussett."
Then take roseett," said bis father,
''and make baate back "
Hereupon Joe began to bustle about
with all speed, and bedizen himself out
in bis Sunday's best, lie was a strapp
ing, honey, Ioug sided fellow. It would
do you good to see him dressed in the
fashion of that day astride of bis nag
Joe bad just bestowed a hearty kick
npon the ribs of his Roz nante at setting
out for the Culnuel's when old Bunker
bawled after him, "Halloo, Joe! stop
there, come back again. You are gcing
by Pearson's mill, and you sh:tll take a
conple of bags of corn, to be ground while
you go to the Colonel s, and bring it back
with yon when you come away ; so yiu
can kill two dogs with one stone "
Joe was inclined to demur to this plan
of mixing business, but haling to waist
time arguing with his father, he assen
ted, and shambling off to the barn brought
out his two bags and bestowed them
snugly en croupe. Tims fairly accourted
be trotted off to the mill.
"Pearson can ye grind my grist while
I go to Colonel Shutes's."
"Yes, Joe ; but what are you goiug a
courting for so early 1"
"Oh, who the dickens told you V
"Never mind, Jce. pluck up courage ;
faint heart never wou fair lady.''
" I hank ye for nothing.'' said Joe. 'I
shall be back in an hour ' Don't let your
horse eat out of the hopper." So off be
started for tbe Colonel's
Joe bolted in at the Colonel's door
without knocking. Iudeed, it is affirmed
be was never known to be guilty of mak
ing such a superfluous noise in all his
"Ah, Mrs. Sbute, the top of tbe morn
ing to ye ; where's Hannah ?"
"Ah. Joe Bunker, is that yon ? Wher's
Hannah ? Why, she's up stairs a spinu-
At this Joe stamped off op stairs with
out any further idle pahiver.
Ilauuab's wheel was bumming right
metrily lieu Joe entered, and she blush
ed like a blue cat upon seeing him.
"How d ye do, Hannah,' said Joe and
shambling up toward the window, be
slouched himself into a marvellously un
comfortable skewing position ou the cor
ner of a chair.
Well ! now was Joe fairly seated
alongside of bis Dulcinca ; but how to
begin conversation ; ab, there was the
difficulty. What was be to say 7 indeed
he had never thought of that. However
be looked out at the wiudow aud saw a
large flock of sheep ; there is nothiug
like taking a Lint from the first thing
"Are these your father's sheep, Han
. Joe gave a hem and tried to think of
something else to say about tbe sheep ;
such as bow much wool they gave, aud
whether they Were of the By field breed,
but be could not make it tade. Pres
ently he espied some cows.
'Are these your cows I"
"How many cows have you got V
"Tweuiy ! That s a tarnation lot of
'em !' -
Here was another pause in tbe conver
sation, and Joe fell more awkward than
ever. As tor Uaunab, she uid uot teel
altogether quite so sheepish. Joe look
ed out of tbe window agaiu. but could
see nothing to talk of. He looked round
tbe room aud np to the ceiling, but there
was nought save a seed cucumber, three
red peppers aud a crook-necked squash
He drummed with bis finger npon tbe
table, and began nucousoioasly to whis
tle a stave f The Tongs and tbe Bouea
This quivered away into Yankee Doodle
and finally he found himself humming a
mixture of tbe Old Hundred and Little
Marlborough. At last he was struck
with an idea, and oat it came :
"Did yon ever see a crow T" .
"How black they are, a'nt tbey V
Another pause- Joe began to wipe
bis forehead with bis coat sleeve. 2'ies
ently tbe appaiition of another idea
dawned npon bim.
"Did you ever see an owl t"
"What great eyes they're gof, hain't
"Do you love mapie sugarUannah V
' Yes." '
''Next time I come 1'il bring you a
Joe fail ly made a bit in this remark,
for he touched npon a sweet sulj-ct, and
it completely broke the ice, Remember
ing tbe advice of the miller, be plucked
up courage, and stood bolt upright ; then
making a fide long blundering sort of a
hitch a little nearer, ' Hannah," says Le,

Hannah let go her wheel frota pure
awkwardness, and Joe growing sti 1 lol
der, made a sudden grapple with both
paws, and bestowed upon her a smack
ing buss that made the very windows
rattle How long it lasted never 'was
known, but Hannah s mother not hear
ing the wheel buzzing, bawled out below
"Hannah, wh it are you doing up there
with Joe Bunker '" This interruption
gave them a ritue like an electric shock.
Joe clawed off in a terrible fright, think
ing that it was time to cut and . run
"Hannah, saul he "1 must el 'ar out

Iu a terrible peck of trouble, Joe got
upon l'ossett with his bags, now think
inr of Hannah and then nf bis unlortu-
nate grist. Half way home be met his
father upon old Bob He was belabor-
ing his sides with might and mam, hoping
to get t the mill iu time to save bis
beans, for be bad discovered Joe's blun
der on going out to plant.
"Oh, Joe, Joe ! you chowderbead;

It s too late now, father, for tbey are

Haw tbe old man stormed and vowed

While some weikmen were engaged
making alterations iu a church situated
near Brouxville, a little station on tba
Harlem Railroad, in Westchester County
aud about fifteen miles distant from New
York, they accideutly discovered, a day
or two ago, the bead quarters of a 'gang
of burglars in the attic of the sacred edi
fice. It may be mentioned that the mod
est place of worihip' indicated (t inds n
an isolated grove, about ball a mile from
the railroad, and within the limits of the
town of East Chester. The attic of the
church hai never brtn used for any pur
pose, and tbe ouly access to it from the
body of the edifice was by means of a
t p laddcr employed only by iLe seiton
when he climbed to the interior of the
sj.iie for the purpose of tiuging the bell.
While tlLctin some alterations iu tba

to that iti which tit;; belt'ry was situated,
the cat pi nter found that the attic had
been used as a rendezvous for brnglarj,
it being fitted up with a niile table chairs
a keroseue stove for cooking and sundry
other culinary utensils. In au elaborate
