DAVID METZGEAL ,
"I will arise and go unto my Father."
When burdened is my breast,
When friendless seems my lot,
When earth atT , rds no rest,
And rettige I have niitl
Father! if thou wilt suffer me,
I will arise and come to thee,
Wh. , l conscience thunders loud,
Wiwi: sins in dread array
T.; ; Ydi my mem ify crowd.
A I fist disinar ;
E'vn Mem More yet is hope for me,
Father! rise and come to thee.
When I have wandered far
Alone, the downward road,
And mountains seem to bar
My turning back to Gnd;
Yet glancing once on Calvary.
Father! I'll rise and come to thee
And if I am a child,
But have backsli gen still,
And filled with projects wild,
Ha•e followed my own will ;'
y e t, penitent, resolved be,
Father! to rise and come to thee.
With broken heart and sad,
I will retrace my way,
And though my case is bad,
Thy mercy is my stay;
With Jesus's blood my only plea,
Father I'll rise and come to thee.
And thou in love wilt torn
To thy poor rebel child;
Nor let thine anger burn,
Though sin my heart beguiled;
Thy voice shall greet me graciously,
Arise! arise! and come to me.
And when my ch.'ek turns pale,
Awl when l sink in death,
Though heart and flesh may fail,
%Vial my expiring breath
I'll whisper, Jesus died for me;
Falter! I rise and come to thee.
It was in the month.of February, 1831,
a bright moonlight night, and intensely cold,
that the little brig I commanded lay quiet-
ly at her anchors inside of Sandy Hook.
We had a hard time of it, beating about
for eleven days of this coast. with cutting
north-casters `blowing, and snow and sleet
falling for most of that time. Forward, the
vessel was thickly coated with ice, and it
wits hard ‘v , irk to hand e her, as the fig

“The tidy is running•out swift and strong ;

this fi 'ming-ice, Mr. Larkin.”
ay, sir," responded the mate, and I
l'w.) hours afterwards, I was aroused
fr , en a sound peep, by the vigilant officer.
"Excuse in.• fur disturbing you, captain,"
said ,he, as he detected an expression of vex
ation on my face; "but I wish you would
turn out and cone on deck as soon as possi
hp--,what'S the matter, Larkin 1"
"Why, sir, I have been watching a cake
of ice that swept by at a little distance, a
moment ago; I saw something black upon
it; something that I thought moved. The
moon's under a cloud, and I could not see
distinctly ; but I do believe there's. a child
fi 'mins!: out to sea, in this freezing night, on
that cake of ice."
We .yere on deck before either spoke an
other ward. The mate pointkd out, with
no little difficulty. the cake of ice floating off
to leeward, and its white glittering surface
was broken by a black spot—more L could
not make out.
“Get one the glasS, Mr. Larkin ; the moon
will be out of the .cloud in a moment, and
then we can' see distinctly.” ~
I kept my eye on the receding mass of
ice, While the moon was skeily:working its
way throtteh a heavy bank of clouds. The
mate'stood by with a glass. When the furl
light fell at last u, on the water with a bril
liancy only. known in our northern latitudes,
I put the glass to my eye. • One glance was
”Forward, there!" I shoutel, at the top
of my voice, and with ; one bound I reached
the main hatch,,and began IQ clear away in
the shies . yawl.
Mr. Larkin had received the glass from
int; hand. to take a look for himself
"My God !" he said in a whisper, as he
set 'to work to aid ine in getting out the boat
—"iny God, there are two children on that
cake of ice !"
Two men answered my hail, and walked
lazily nft. In an incredible short space of
time . we launched the cutter, into which Mr.
Larkin and myself jumped, followed 'by the
two men who took the oars. I rigged the
tiller, and the mate sat beside me in the
—Do you see that cake of ice with some
thing black upon it, lads ?" I cried ; '•put
me alongside of that, and I'll give you a bot
tle of rum each, to-night, and a month's ex
tra wages *hen you are paid off."
The men bent to their oars, but their
strokes were uneven and feeble. They
were used up by the hard duty of the pie
ceditur' fortnight and though they did their
best, the boat made little more way than the
tide. This was a long chase, and Mr. Lar.
kin, who was suffering as he saw how little
we gained, cried out—
..Pu I I. lads—l'll double the captain's prize,
two bottles of ruin and two month's pay.
Pull, lads. for the love of God, pUll
A convulsive effort of the oars told how
willing the men were toobey; butthe strength
of the strong men was gone. One of . .the
poor fellows washed us twicein recovering
onr, and then gave out; the other wawviear
ly as far gone. Mr. Larkin sprang forward
and seized the deserted oar.
"Lay down in the bottom of the boat,"
said he to the man ; and captain take the
other oar; we must row for ourselves."
I took the second man's place ; Larkin
had stripped to hls Guernsey shirt; as he
pulled .the bow, I waited the signal stroke.
It came gently, but firm, and the next mo•
ment we were pulling a long, steady stroke,
gradually increasing in rapidity, until the
wood seemed to smoke in the oar locks.
We kept tune, each by a long, deep breath
ing of the other. Such a pul! ! We bent
forward until our faces alaio,t touched our
knees, and then throwing all our strength
into the backward movement, until every
inch of the space covered by the sweep had
been gained. At every stroke the boat shot
ahead like an arrow discharged from a bow.
Thus we worked at the oar for fifteen min
utes—it seemed to the as many hours. The
sweat rolled off the in great drops, and I was
enveloped in steam generated from my own
"Are we almost to it, Mr. Larkin," I
"Almost, captaindon't give up ; for the
love of our-dear little ones at home—do: ft
give.up, captain !"
The oars flashed as the blades turned up
to the moonlight. The men who plied them
were fathers, and had fathers' hearts ; the
strength which nerved them at that moment
w a s in ure than human.
Suddenly Mr. Larkin stopped pulling.
and my heart for a moment almost ceased
its beating ; for the terrible thought that he
had given out crossed my mind. But I was
I quickly re-assured by his voice :
"Gently, captain, gently—a strolie or two
more—there, that will do"—and the next
moment the boat's side came in contact with
something, and Larkin sprang from the boat
with his heavy feet upon the ice. I started
up, and calling upon the men to make fast
the boat to the ice, folloWed:
We ran to the dark spot in the centre of
the mass, and found two little boys—the
head of the. smaller nestling in the bosom of
the larger—Both were fast asleep ! The
lethargy. which would have been fatal, but
• for the timely rescue, had overcome them.
Mr. Larkin grasped one of the lads, cut off
his shoes, tore off his jacket ; and then loos
ing his own garments to the skin, placed the
chilled child in contact with his own warm
body. Carefully wrapping over him his great
coat, which he procured from the boat. I
did the same with the other child ; , and we
then returned to the boat, and the men, par
tially recovered, pulled back.
The children, as we learned when we
subsequently had the delight of restoring
them to their parents, were playing on the
ice, and bad , ventured on the cake, which
had jammed into , the bend of the river, ten
mileg above New York. A movement of
the tide, set the ice in motion, and: the little
feilows were away on that cold 'night, and
would inevitably have perished but for Mr.
I,lo:in's espy ing them us the ice was sweep
ing out to sea. •
"How ip you feel 1" I said to the mate,
-the morning after his adventure. . •
"A little stiff in the arms, captain . ," the
noble fellow replied,- while the big tears of
grateful happiness' gushed from his eyes—
"A little stain the arms, captain, but very
easy here," and , littiaid his hand on his
manly heart.. My quaint, brave down-east

The Model Widoi.
Of Widows what has not • been said 1
They have been compared to everything.
and yet remain incomparable . :
Some savage has likened her heart to an
"apartment to let," where the incoming
hidger is sure to find something that hag
been left by a previous tenant. Some spite
ful Tony Weller has called her ..hymenial
hydrophobia;" for there is no possible cure
fur him who was once bitten. She has been
compared to a magnet over men's• hearts,
because her attraction is only to steal.
It has been argued that Widows should be
put down—for, like the gipsies, they mean
no good, and only prowl about for plunder;
while others maintain- that a widow-should
carry, over her weeds, a board marked ..dan
gerous," to warn persons from venturing
too near her, and being immediately ..dmwn
Young men are cautioned against playing
with her, or else they will find it,a losing
game ; for she is always sure to Win their
hand, at Ecarte, by dint of "proposing." •
Irt fact, what has not been said against
the-widow ? . " •
Is there no such person, then, as nModel
Widow 1 Why, of course, there is; every
widow, more or less, is one, She is pretty -
-the ugliest woman Io6LI pretty in ruins
—and is, has been, or .should' bo young:
Her eyes are not always shrouded by a fine
cambric handkerchief. She wears her cap
for pure grief, and not fora year afterwards
only to look interesting.- She speaks spar
ingly of her "dear deported" even of his
failings: She wears no minature as big as
a poster, on a high wall of crape. She is
well provided for, or if there is no positive
proof of this; there should be at least a well.
grounded fiction. She is retiring, and has
a violent antipathy for matrimony, so much
so, indeed, that the mere name it-is enough
to send her out of the room. She rarely
goes into society, but. courts -solitude and
dull towns and damp watering-places. She
cannot bear scandal, or a ball, or the opera,
or a fancy bazaar, or any place where she is
likely to he seen. You have a difficulty in
persuading her to leave .her bed-room.
There she remains shut up. allowing -no
vulgar eye to pry into her sorrow. She
lives only for her children. What ! has
the Model Widow any children ?--.has she
a ready-made family ? Yes !we are afraid
ti say she has—but then she does not send
them to school, or keep them always buried
in the country, "because it agrees so'much
better with them," or throw a big.black
over their existence. She is always with
them, walking out with-them, and taking-a
pleasure in teaching them. But then she
cannot marry again, if she has a parish
school of little boys and girls ? •What !
wou!d you have her marry a second.timal
Why, the notion is• preposterous ! Matrimo
ny is the very last thought that knocks at
her heart. Besides, .if it did, the door is
barred, bo'te'd. padlocked, barricaded against
the possibility of any one entering! It is
only a dark vault in which the effigy of her
husband is entombed with a ll t h e gmces of
mental sculpture. of love. She alone has
the kgy, and she alone enters to worship in
secret by herself. Is it likely, then f she
would defile the sanctity of the place, and
break the image that has so lorig.been.se&
upon the altar of her affections, to. erect a
new shrine, and go on her knees to another:
Pshaw ! no moral, physical,' or any other
revolution, could efleCt that. It wquld
fatal, at once, to the beautiful conceptiori•of
the Model Widow. Hindoo-like, she sacrir s
fices herself •on burning pyre of .her
own heart. If one. thing tortures. her more
than another, it is a proposal from any one.
Widowers and Bachelors, be kind to her.
The Indian chief known as Ka-ge-ga•gah
bowh, or George Copway,.in one of his re
cent lectures described the marriage cere
mony of the Chippewas as follows.: ! ,
He said there was no courtship done .by
the. young people, in most Indian nations;
that was done by the -parents Team before
hand, and it often came rather aghast the
grain with the young people. , When :the
day came, the teremony was performed by
the chief, consisting of a lectutecto• the
young couple, and a feast, after. Whichtthey
were considered as than and wife. Bateman
the tribes of the West there were many ve-,
ry curious ceremonies connected with court
ship and marriage. One way of.getting a
wife was as follows: When a young In
dian fell in love with any of the daughters
of the village, he would go and sit down
within a few yards of her,, keeping a strict
silence.all the while ; in a few moments he
would get up and go away; this „he 'repeat
ed six or seven times, coming nearer-to her
every time.. At last be sits by her siile,'if.
she makes no movement of dis-pleasure;
then he has hopes. . He.sits by her several
times In this
,manner v and at last pops the
question by putting his hand on her hand.
and she accepts,him by placing her hand
over the other mo. All this time he takes.
care' not to say a word, and she - likewise ;
but after the•guestion is popped. then the
"Words of honer.are applied and they, soon
become man and wife.
