Ofor or e hour of euchencharited light
As made a fairer daytime in the sey.
When on the witiow-bank we sat that night,
My i. ld•time love and I!
A while we talked so low and tenderly,
We the I , stettin te tr. es above es
And R uder far the silence seemed to
Tha Alt at last between.
Her 'inlay floating on lie quiet thoughts, •
Lik water-illies on a tranquil lake;
And ove within, unknowo, [meanie unsought,

Ah, Love is lightest sleeper ever known: i .
A whisper, and he started plainto view;
' Old as the hesv ens seemed oar story grown,
While yet the moon was new.
Ar d whe.n she spoke her answer seemed the while
Sweeter for sweetness of the lips that told,
Betting a precious word within a smile —
Adianiondiringea with gold.
Then bloomed for us the perfect CI , nturv.flower•
Then lilted the cup and.t,verranth, brim;
And all the stars proc.eslonal, th 4: hour,
Chanted a bridal hymn.
Ah, Time all after• days may tt away,
Such loy as that thou haet but once to give,

Though kingdontless he live.

on the increase rather than decrease, al
though it this.season shares a fashionable
preference for the crest and coats of
arms. Very high, brilliant colors are
extensively patronized. A great deal of

Charles Betide at Rowe.
Charles Reade avoids what is called
"society," nevertheless, four or five guests
are always to be found at his genial table.
They are, usually, people remarkable in
some way or other—in letters, science or
themimic art. Genuine talent invariably
meets with a cheering word from him.
One evening he was persuaded to seat
himself at the flower-shaCed piano, and
lie burst forth into the plaintive, quaint
old English ballad that Griffith Gaunt
forced Mercy Vint to sing—" The Song
that Won the Jealous Heart."
The following anecdote has, I think,
been told before, but it will bear to be re
pnated, if only to show Charles Reade's
love of America, even in small things :
He had invited a few friends to dine,
but way prevented returning home until
is guests' had , assembled. Some weeks
rior to thii he had requested an Ameri
can friend, to send him some bay rum.
which arrived at the dinner hour. The
words "Day Rum" on the case made the
guests inquisitive; and a relative of the
author, supposing it was new, liquor
which the absent host had ordered for
that very dinner party, had the box
opened, and they all tossed off a modicum
of bay rum! At this stage ofthe proceed
ings the missing man appeared, heard the
story and quietly determined to note the
effects of bay rum as a beverage.. It did
not suit the general palate, and dappro
bation was expressed. They likedbran
dy smash, sherry cobbler, mint julep; but
this was—"really—you know—quite
Hereupon Charles Reade revealed the
secret, and the disgust, on learning that
they had been drinking halwash, or
scent, or anything but . rum, was only
equalled by their misgivings as to poison.
In society or at home Charles Reade is
always the same ; his manners are a hap
py blending of affabilty and dignity, and
calculated to put strangers at their ease
with him. He possesses in an unusual
degree erudition without pedantry, wit
without sarcasm, candor without bitter
ness, kindness without weakness—refine
ment, modesty and simplicity. Even
while enchanted with his numberless
mental gifts, one almost forgets the distin
guished author in admiration of his high
qualities as a "good man."—Packard's
An. exchange says the uses to -which
paper can be put seem to be in no way
exhausted yet. Paper collars have be
come a great tact of the nineteenth cen
tury, but what will ladies say to paper
petticoats? These have been produced
with great success, and will rival in every
way the snow white and elaborately or
nate garments poor male mortals are ac
customed to look upon with fear and re
verence. We have all heard of the artist
who used to make caricatures of his
friends upon his shirt collars, and the au
thor who inscribed an epic upon a couple
of dozen of the same useful article of at
tire. ,Thus we see a field •of great use-
fulness for the petticoat for the future.
Young ladies can make sketches
from nature on their own petticoats.
Every damsel her own sketch-book
will be_ their motto. Poets can
inscribe sonnets to their mistress' ankles
around the hem of her petticoats. Mothers'
can have fairy tales, alphabets and small
scholastic works inscribed on their gar
ments and so instruct their children as
they walk about with them. Fancy the
announcement, "Madame Percale begs
leave to call the attention of the ladies
about to visit the sea-side to her new and
richly embroidored petticoats at one shil
ling each. Each petticoat contains an
installaient of a new novel of great ao
mestic interest, by Mr. Anthony Trollope,
entitled •Tucks or Frills.' The story
wilLbe complete in fifty weekly petti
coats." There is no reason whatever why
journalism should not be represented in
this way. For example, the Daily Petti
coat, a journal for ladies; or the weekly
Pinafore and Girl's Gazette.
New Religious Enterprise
A new era in the American missionary
work seems to'have been begun in Chi
cago by an enterprise which must eventu
ally revolutionize the old missionary sys
tem that has so long been in practice
among our religious institutions in Amer
ica. The event referred to was the decli
nation of Tabernacle Tent, which, under
the auspices of the Baptist denomination,
was on Friday evening set apart by ap
propriate and solemn devotional, exercises
for the use of God. The purpose to which
this tent is to be put is one which
is decidedly novel, and, if the
experiment prove successful, will give a
new impetus to missionary labor on the
plains, and solve a great problem as to
the method by which religious instruct
Lion is to be carried to those who are out
of reach of the - regular influences of re
ligious teachings. The tent, which is
destined for the missionary work in Kan
sas, is thirty feet' high in the 6entre,eight
feet high at the side and seventy feet in
diameter, with a seating capacity of 1,500.
It was filled on Friday night to_ over•
flowing by an attentive audience, which.
joined heartily in the singing and devo
tional exercises.—Chicapo Republican.
Oun frontier females do not seem to
understand the necessity of taking the
census, and naturally resist such things.
Such was the case in Cheyenne. To one
Mr. Pierce, the collector, said: "What is,
your ago?" and she replied: "That is an
impudent question. and I won't tell yori."
"Well, I shall put you - down "at thirty,"
said Pierce. "I'm only twenty-seven,"
indignantly exclaimed the now thorough
ly enraged lady. The record' was cor
rected accordingly. "Madam," said Mr.
Pierce to another lady, "I have been at
your house twice to take the census."
"You had better not let me catch you
there taking anything," answered their:-
dependent woman. "I want to know
how many children you have," asked
Pierce, walking into • a house. "What's
that your business?" answered the dame,
"so long as „we- don't- ask you to -keep_
them?" "I am taking - the - census,•aud
must know," pursued Pierce. "Well, I
guess-somebody has been takin'
and:you'd better be hunting them up,
