Katie Lee ami WlUJe Grey.
Tro brown hearts with mssing curls,
Red lips hotting over pearl,
Bire (eet while and wet wi'h daw,
Two eye black and two eye blue ;
Little boy and girl were they
Katie Lee and Wiltie Grey.
1 hey were standing where a brook.
Bending like a shepherd croolc,
Flashed its silver ; ai.d thick ranks
Of green willows fringed the tanks,
Hal! in thonght and hall in play,
Katie Lee and Willie Grey.
They had cheeks lik cherries red.
He was raller most a head ;
She, with arm i.ke wreaths of snow,
Swung a basket to and frr,
. As she touered half in play,
Chal'ering to Willie Grey.
Pretty K'ie,,; Willie B'ui,'
And tiere crne a dasrt of red
Through the iToani.e-s of hi c'ieek,l
Boy are strong arrd itr's are weak,
And Til carry, so I will,
Katie's bak.et up the hill."
Katie answered in laimh,
Yo shall carry only half ;'r
And then, tossing; back her cnr!.,
Boys are weak as well a jjirls."
Po yjo think that Katie guessed
Hall the wisdom she expressed!
Men are only boys crown tali,
Hearts dot.'t change much after all.
And when, long years from day 10 day,
Katie Lee and Wille Grev

While azaui a dash of red

Washing with its silver hands,

There is no person, I believe, so mnch
given op to selfishness, that his companions
can wield over him no in floe rice. From the
erliei period of man' intellectual career,
we sea him making friends, advising and
being advised, and uniting himself w;:h
gome good associations, to promote man's
best interests; or uniting h:melf with evil
associations, that derad a man and. make
him a pest to good society, and a dissipated
and wretched being; and thereby subjecting
himself to all the influences, good or bad,
that membership and brotherhood can exert
over him. The reason I will give for man's
nniting bimse!! thus with institutions, is be
cause he was created asocial and sympa
thetic being. Creased with these feeling,
he has not the isclinatian. to bolt the door
against these better lee'i.)2 of his and say,
1 will exchange no commnnieation:", make
no friend, and onjenl to no bond of asso
ciation, thai I may not be subject to ths in
fluence which men are said lo exercise
over each other, when enaaged in 'the same
cause; but hermit like, seclude himself from
ihe busy scene of life, doing no aood to his
fellow man enjoying none of the benefits o!
society, and become enaed in nonm of the
works the Almi'tty designed his intel
ligent creatures to do. - - -
But the associations, with which man is
urroacded, emulate him to action; there
fore, he must choose his field of labor, and
pnite himseli with auch institutions, as his
inclination may lead him to shoose. Should
ie make a good selection, and mingle with
society that has for its object the promulga
lion ol truth, virtoe, and liberty, and incul
cates the first and second great command,
zneut, namely: ' Ivive to Go lJanJ man we
will see that, as his character is moulded
with these good and noble principles, he
will bocome a useful,-and perhaps ait influ
ential member of coT.muniiv, simply be
cause he united with society that was based
on the principles ol right, and taught him
liis. duty to his fellow ma, end his duty to
his Creator. B'tt it his inclinations, or the
influences which surround him, lead him, to
unite with inriui0(!s, that are not baed on
truth, we will see his character gradaahy be
in? stamps J with dishonor and aharrvv, and
t., who was perhaps once virtuous and
Iraihlnl, has become a be;.)g ot misery,
w:a;cbaJne.s and crime.
A Tunny Adventure.
'I never attended but cne temperance j
lecture," Faid our friend B wilri a
peculiar smile, "and 1 don't think 1 shall
ever attend another."
' You probably found it dry?"
Well yes but that isn't it. The lecture
was well enough, but I got into sueh an
awffll scrape alter it was over, that I never
think cf temperance without a shudder. I'll
tell you all about it:
'It was in N , where I was some
what of a fctrai)2er, and the tiiaht was one of
the worst of the season. Bore! hw it

I lingered in Ihe doorway, contemplating
the awlul scene, when somebody thrust an

I was nearly petrified. Of course I was
as anxious to leave as she was to have me;
but in my cenfesion, instead of going out
the door I came in at, I walked into a closet,
and before I could rectify my error, there
came a thundering at the hail doer.
The lady's real husband had C3rr.e ar.d

would be of no use to try to get out cf the

''I know he is here, I saw him rnme into
the house with you! You locked the door ;
I'll have his heari out where is he ?"
'Hear me! Hear me! 1 will explain,''
urged the lady.
