She loves him yct!
I know by the blush that rises
Beneath those curls
That shadow her soul-lit check,
She loves him yet!
Thro' all love's sweet disguises
In timid girls,
A blush will be sure to-speak.
But dearer signs
Than the radiant blush of beauty,
The maiden finds,
Whenever his name is heard—
Her yoqn,3 heart thrills;
Her dark eye
And her pulse with hope is stirr'd.
She loves him:yet;
The flower the fatse one gave her
When test'he came,

Broadway ! everybody knows Bra
nobody asks where it is, anymore titan we
do the situation of London and Paris when
these names are mentioned. Broadway is
a sound full of rich associations for me.

most freely, and the native populatien Inv?)
burst from their chrysalis and now flutter in
the warm sun. Those who have read Willis'-
sketch of Broadway will recognize in the fol-
lowing picture of its habitue's nearly the same '
ground he has occupied ; hut 1 hope his 1
readers Will not accuse the of filching from
him, as my int.ntion is not to be original,
but only to hold a little chit-chat and tell a
little story that happened in this.strcet.
From sunrise until about seven in the
morning the street is occupied with laborers,
mechanics and shop-girls going to their
work. An omnibus strays downward, like
the first flake of a snow-storm, which is soon
succeeded by others that come thicker and
thicker, until about half past eight when the
street is fully seized by them. The current
of vehicles still pours downward, and each
one surcharged with clerks and merchants
doing a moderate business. At this time
the character of the omnibus cargo begins
to change ; for the' well-to-do-in-the-world'
wholesale merchant and the Wall street
broker begin to pour out. What a differ
ence is there in the appearance of these two
classes ! The first tall, thin, pale and sup
plg ; the other is fat, well-fed, red-faced and
invested with a my-business-to-me-is-my
kingdom-and- I-dont -care-for-anybody-else
look. So numerous are these classes, 'and
so generally do they avail themselves of the
omnibus for locomotion, that it is difficult to
find a place in one, unless you are ny5 e .,,,,, n1 '
and near their pace of strlv:,„ g ; but to think
of riclin4 ',..ip in the morning, is absurd .4 . for
the current of travel all pours downtown:,--
In the morning, that is, from half past eight
until twelve, the only persons, seen in tho
street, are generally fine laclies .incog who
are obliged to make purchases.which they
are not disposed to do at mete fashionable
hours; gentlemen of no particular class or
busine"q; and everybody snit :nobody. ' At
four o'clock, the f a shionable hour par, emi
nence, is about at its flood. Now Broad

Many other attractions; but to recount them,
would be to say that the moon is bright and
the sun brighter ; everybody knows them.
Peradventure what I have said is equally
superfluous. My object however was to in
troduce a little story whose scene was laid
in this wonderful street, and which is as
Some eight or nine years ago, there was a
French hoarding-house situated a few doers
above Franklin street. In this house a
friend of mine whom I shall call Leclerc,
_and who was quite a young man then,
boarded. There were ten or twelve other
boarders, one of whom styled himself a
Marquis, a peer of the realm of France.
The marquis and Leclec could never agree ;
in fact they were always sparring. The
origin of their quarrel arose from the fact
that the latter would never accord to the other
the deference due to his aristocratic dignity.
Matters thus went on for a long time, their

But tbey could not remain so long ; the

at them. Gratified by this'demonstration of
popular admiration they continued their way
to the Bowling Green. The same manifes

that a troop of boys began to follow them.—
When they had reached the house and rung
the bell, the Marquis' own servant opened
the door., But while standing on the steps
andfOniting at the door, a crowd had gath
ered around in the street and were gazing -at
the French couple.
"What for you look so at us ? 1 ' said the
Marquis to the rabble.
His only answer was a loud guffaw from
"We no look at you but at —." Said a

Childhood 'and Youth.
Childhood and Youth,— like the sweet
flowers of Summer, are beautiful.: beautiful
in their own bright forms—happy in their
own sweet visions. Light as the air they
breathe, no Cares; b 6 anxieties press upon
them, save ilio'se Which are like the still
dews of evening' that fall on the blushing
flowers, ,and pass away in the first rays of
the morning sun.
Childhood and Youth, like flowers, soon
fade.—soon cease to attract, by their rich - -
ness and beauty, the admiring eye. Some
retain their fragrance long after their loveli
est lines are fled ; while others more gaildy,
more strikingly •brilliant, expire as they
close their bright petals; and we knoUrthetti .

Their minds must be cultivated, if they
would be happy and make others so: their
hearts store-houses of intelligence, from
which should - emanate all that can delight.
Home must be the bright spot ; earth must
know none which can equal it. It must be
the resort of love, of peace, of joy. Every
thing depends upon, the proper cultivation of
the mind. Let the Bible--be first studied:
it is from this sacred fountain that the in
fant becomes first nourished. How the
bright eyes of the listening cherubs gleam
with the varied emotions of joy and grief, at
the recital of its interesting stories!
Let truth be first stamped upon opening

from this pure fountain of enjoyment ! The

her children; they can be calmed and still

dren.become weary of their playthings, and
are often irritable; their feelings must be
soothed by their mother; this is her peculi
ar province ; and as they grow in years she
must strengthen her efforts. Home must
still be the elyseum of their souls. If sepa
rated,-much still depends upon the mother;
she must follow herchildren with her letters
and her counsel. Her communications must
be such as to keep alive the flame of love,
and draw their minds back to the scenes of
their childhood, that, however remote they
may be—in whatever situation they may be
placed—in temptation, in sickness, in health,
in prosperity or adversity—like a charm,
home and. mother must operate upon them,
and prove a talisman to guide them all in
their devious ways.
In affliction's stormy hour, when the
bright orb of day is shut from the weakened
eye—when the voice of song is hushed, and
the rambling among the flowers are over
when the same monotonous scene occurs from
day to day, from month to month, and not
unfrequcntly from year to year, it is then the
mind seeks relief: it wants enjoyment, for it
is an active principle which will never, which
can never sleep ; and the more intense the
siiffering, the more active the spirit. Noth
ing can chain it, it will work—it will rum
inate upon the by-gone scenes of joy and
grief ; lights and shades pass over it. It
recieves consolation from its own resource.
. lessons imparted, ser
mons welitiligested,,iitice)lany„ lyrics, poe

relieve the aching mind. Persons in distress
can overcome a thousand nameless evils, by
reciting or composing; such a train of
thoughts overcomes pain and lifts the soul
above earth. How necessary to enrich the
mind in early life, "before 'the evil days
come." It dies not' with the body : it runs
pantile! with God. It is a living, undying
principal and must be enriched here The
more it knows of God, the more it will be
like him : and the better prepared for sub
limer enjoyment above. The soul that views
God in' all his works, in every tree, shrub
and flower, "sees him in clouds and hears
him in the wind." With every change,
with eVery object, associates the Deity.
That soul lives a life truly great, and will
rise high in a purer clinic, amid that bright
constellation of intellectual beings who wor
ship continually before the throne of God
and the. Lamb. Let the youth attend to
these things, and for a moment suspend their
anxiety for the outward adornment of per
sons ; and remember, a well educated mind
is a jewel far inure estimable in the, eyes of
an intelligent man, than the most beautiful

To Boys and Gijis.
Never tell a whole lie, or half a lie, or a
quarter of a lie, or any part of a lie. Many
boys, who know well enough what a sneak , .
ing, dirty thing it is to tell a lie, will yet
twist the truth, or deceive a little. bit. This
is about as ba&—and a good deal more cow
ardly than a plump falsehood. If a boy
does somothing wrong, either through igno•
mance, carelessness, or accident—and then
tells one half tritth e and one half lie about it
—he might almost as well have told the
whole untruth, that he didn't do it at all.
Now sea how the spirited, Manly, true
hearted, clear tongued boy Will do, after an,
error : he resolutely determines to acknowl
edge it, without being afraid of anybody's
anger—to tell it just as it Was. I never in
my life knew any one to, be injured by tell
ing the truth in this way; but I have seen
many n boy and man.too, who 'was looked
upon with contempt, and thought poorly of,
because he would tell sneaking lies, or half
lies, or quarter lies. The worst sort a un
truths—those WhiCh are deliberately, Made
up—stories about peopleor little stories
magnified into big ones—prove the teller of
them to be a worthless, impure; and mean
person. The liar is indeed 'despicable both
to Ocsiand men. On' the other hand, noth
ing is more.beautiful than a stricty truth tel

from the truth, who is open, candid,. and

strive hard—should determine to become so

Woman's Age. .
Eve, it is well known; was sixteen years
old when she was awakened at the aide of
her husband. Sixteen years old, say an
cient writers, and that so boldly, that they
must have seen Eve's register written on
the lilies of Paradise. Now women—who
have, nine times out of ten, more curious
and rabinical learning than the mean envy
of our sex wilt. allow to them—women, in
heriting the privilege from their first parent,
believe that, after a certain time, they haven
just right to let their first sixteen years go
for nothing, and so they sink the prelimina
ry sixteen with a smile, counttng with
mother Eve, their seventeenttii's their first
real birth-day. And they are right=;' for it
deducts from your warren - ciflie-and:forty,
all that she cares to lose, giving her a fair
start with Eve, and'pegging hex back to full
blown nine-and-twenty. And, inikeed, it is
impossible that any really charming WOMIM
should be a . day older.
The Charm of Cleanliness.
A white-yellow cravat or shirt on a man,
speaks at once of the character of his wife;
and be you assured, that she will not take
with your dress, pains which she has never
taken with her own. Then the manner of
putting on the dress is no bad foundation for
judging,—if it be carelessly; slovenly, if it
do not properly fit. No matter its mean
quality ; mean as it may be, it may be neat
ly and trimly put on ; and if it be not, take
care of yourself, for, as you will soon find
out your cost, a sloven in one thing is a slo
ven in all things. The country people judge
greatly from the state of covering of the an
kles ; and if it be not clean and tight, they
conclude that all out of sight is not as it
ought to be.. Look at the shoes, if they be
trodden on one side, loose on the foot, or run
down at the heel, it is a very bad sign;--
and, as to slipshod, though at coming down
in the morning, and even before daylight,
make up s your mind to a rope rather 'than
live with a slipshod wife. Oh! how much
do women lose by inattention to these mat
ters? Men, in.general, say nothing.about
it to their wives ;, but they think about it;
they envy their hickier neighbors, and in
numerous cases, consequences the most tie
rious arise from this apparently trifling
cause. Beauty is valuable; it is one of the
ties,•and a strong tie too; that, however, can
not last to an old age ; but the charm of
cleanliness never ends but with life itself.

odd-looking person joined the passengers on
the New York and Erie railroad the other
day, at a distant western station. When hef
entered the spacious car, he looked around
in utter amazement at its extent, and the com
fort and elegance of its accommodations. And
now began to talk to himself, which he con

Piermont. "Wal," he commenced, Htlits is
