lAMETfT OF THE IRISH EMIGBAWT.
I'm sitfin' en the stilo. Mary,
' 'Where we sat side by side,
On a. bright May ajornin'. long ago,
- When first you were my bride;
Then corn was springin' fresh and green,
And the lark :ang loud and high,
And the red "was on thy lip, Mary,
And the love-light in your eye.
The place is little changed, Mary,
The day as bright as then ;
The lark's load song is in my ear,
And the corn is green again !
But I miss the soft . clasp of your hand,
And your breath warm on my cheek,
And I still keep listnin' for the words
You novcr more may speak.
'Tis but a step down yonder lane,
And the little church stands near
Th church where we were wed, Mary,
I see the spire from here ;
But the graveyard lies between, Mary,
And my eU-p might break your rest.
Tor I've laid you, darlin', down to sleep,
With your baby on your breast.
, Im very lonely now, Mary
For the poor make no new friends ;
But oh, they lore thee better far,
The few our father sends !
And you were nil Iliad, Mary
My blessin' and my pride !
There's nothin' left to care for now,
Since my poor Mary died !
Your3 was the good, brave heart, Mary,
That still kept hoping on,
When t he trust in God had left my soul,
And my arms' young strength was gone.
There was comfort ever on your lip,
And the kind look on your brow ;
I bless you, Mary, for that same,
Though you can't hear me now.
I thank you for the patient smile,
When your heart was fit to break,
When the hunger pain wa3 gnawin' there,
And you hid it, for my sake !
I bless you for the pleasant word,
When your heart was sad and sore ;
Oh ! I'm thankful you are gone, Mary,
Where grief can't reach you more.
I'm biddia' you a long farewell,
My Mary kind and true !
But I'll not forget you darlia', ,
In the land I'm going to ;
They say ther's bread and work for all,
And the sun shines always there ; .
But I'll not furget old Ireland,
Were it fifty times as fair. -
And often in those grand old " woods,
I'll eit and shut my eyes,
And my heart will travel back again
To the place where Mary lies ;
And 111 think I see the littlo stile
Where we sat side by Eide, -.
And the springin' corn, and the bright May morn.
When first you were my bride !
A good anecdote is told of a countryman
from New York who was visiting "Washington
at the time Jlr. Van Buren was Vice Presi
dent. Our friend was a red-hot democrat,
and of course held Mr. Van Buren in the
highest reverence. He sat in the circular
crallerv of the Senate, gazing at the Vice
President with a mineled feelinc of awe and
etate pride, when suddenly a tall and majes
tic form appeared at the side of the hall and
beckoned to Mr. Van Buren. There was little
business doing, and the Vice President calling
a Senator to the chair, joined the person men
tioned, when both seat ed themselves on a sofa,
both snuffed from the same box the hand of
the Vice President was laid playfully upon
the kuee of his companion, and ever and anon
a hearty laugh would escape them, showing
that whatever might be the topic, it was one
which was agreeable to both. ! i
Is that Mr. Calhoun with the Vice Presi-
dent V taid our country friend, turning to a
person near him.
Is it Mr. Benton ?"
Is it Gen. Wall V
'May I ask who it is?'
Why, that ia Mr. Clay.'
Mr. Clay!' almost shrieked the man ; and
does Mr. Van Buren speak to him ? Rot me
if ever I vote for him again!' and the fellow
stalked from the hall, firmly believing that
the country was lost.
; - - Origin of tho Telescope.
The son of a spectacle maker of Middle-
burgh, in Holland, happened to amuse himself
in his fathers's shop, by holding two glasses
between his fingers and thumb and varying
their distances, perceived the weathercock of
the church spire opposite to him much larger j
thau ordinary, and apparently much nearer
and turned upside down. This new wonder
excited the father's amazement ; he adjusted
two glasses on a board, rendering tbem move
able at pleasure, and thus formed a rude pros
pective glass. Galileo, hearing of the inven
tion, set hi3 mind in order to bring it to per
fection. He fixed glasses at the end of long
organ pipes, and constructed a telescope,
which he soon directed to the surrounding
heavens. He discovered four moons revolving
around the planet Jupiter, spots around the
surface of the sun, and the rotation of the
globe around its ownaxis.

The Grevtown Victory! i
?4POT.vn: it vn v-o holinrp.. hn snid tit- t. !
the indignation of a people was not as fatal to
a government as its contempt. This is being
illustrated iu the contempt and ridicule pour
ed upon the administration for its prowess at
Grevtown. That splendid achievement is
thus poetically celebrated in the X. V. Even
ing Post :
Twas Captain Ilollins led the fier;e attack :
A man of iron nerve and bendles3 back ;
Long were his cars and proud his martial tread
And calm his eye and very stout his heed,
Xo wonder, when they saw his vengeful frown.
That Greytown's people fled the fated town,
Nor left behind a single soul" to daro
The fearful storm that rose upon them there.
But when he saw his dastard foeinen run,
Nor wait tho thunder of a single gun
Redoubled courage swelled our hero's breast,
And conscious victory perched-upon his crest
'To arms," he cried, "bring all the guns to bear;
Beard the fierce lion in his very lair ;
Bombard the town ! What coward eouI will quake
When foes have run and honor ia at stake !"
Loud boomed the guns, and heavy fell the balls
AVith crushing weight on empty ehanty walls ;
A hundred thousand fc-ct of lumber good
AY as all destroyed, and several cords of wood-;
Tho peaceful pigs that roamed in street and lane
Fell panting, bleeding, 'neath tho iron rain ;
And twice two score of bravest geese turned tail
And sought on frightened wing the distant vale.
Like the Angela.
"Why ! you would have me like the angels!"
exclaimed a young girl with whom a friend
had been talking.
Truly we would have women like the angels.
And why not ? Is it any harm to be like an an
gel? We read that they arc very beautiful
full of love, truth, purity, compassion, sinless.
Are these forbidden traits? Angels slander
not each other. They have no circles in their
glorious home where characters are picked to
pieces. Angels never wreath the face with
smiles when envy is gnawing the very heart
strinjrs in twain. ' Angels never rejoice over
the downfall of another. Angels lure not with
the eye ; and then coldly cast off with the lip.
Angels suffer not passion to paint the brow
dark with discontent and hatred.
Would you not wish eventually, to become
an angel ? Or does this thought never enter
with the multitude that cross the mind's thresh
old ? Why not prepare, then, for this high
destination ? W liy not discipline the sublime
thoughts and become beautiful in good deeds?
Cultivate you affections, be pure in thought
gentle in spirit. Banish forever deception.
evil speaking, inordinate love of pleasure !
Why not become as near as may be, angles on
earth ? Ah ! young ladies, believe us when we
tell you there is no harm in striving to be like
CP" Horace Greely, it is well known, has
taken to farming. Last year, when in Massa
chusetts attending a poultry show, he bought
half a dozen pure Cochin China eggs, $6 a
dozen, which produced him six ugly ducks.
An editor from Maine, however, fared still
worse- He bought half a dozen eggs of "a
new variety," which the dealer assured him
would produce "very rare birds." So they
did, for they were put under the very best hen
and in due time came out "what do you
"I could not guess," said his friend, "'what

as they were hatched, they siezed upon the

We rememlier being at conference
meeting once, in Yankey land, when, one of
the deacons came around, asking the people
if they wanted salvation.
Xear us sat a butcher's boy, nineteen years
old, about as ameable to salvation as a lamb
in his hands would be to mercy.
'Do you want salvation ?' said the deacon
looking into his brutal face.

from the known talents of Jus contributors, that he
will be able to present as many good original ar-

peared in print in this country. Essays on impor
tant Political Subjects will likewise be inserted,
and criticisms on the Literature of America and

who will supply illustrations for the test in the
body of the book. The aim of the editor will not
be so much to increase the number of his engrav
ings, as to secure for those he publishes the ut
most finish the artist can give them ; for common
wood-cuts are so easily multiplied, that the most
indifferent publication may outrank in dreary dis
play the choicest periodical.
The Editor does not feel, that with his own rea
ders he can increase his claims to respect by in
sisting on any very great superiority of 'Graham'
over several similar publications, but thinks he
may safely confide in their friendship for the
J'agaziue, and in its past management for its pre
sent list, and such increase as miturally grows out
of an extended circulation in a country where
readers are multiplying so rapidly.
Of the January number the first a Jition will be
30.000 copies, and the editor trusts his old friends
will be so prompt in renewing old clubs, anil ex-,
tending the list among new ones, that the first

those who read the serial so promptly issued every
week by Dickens, with thoughtful appreciation,
know how to prize it. "Household Words" is a
modern journal for the people, devoted to common
subjects, uncommonly treated, excellent in style,
in genius, in manner, and wonderfully fertile in
subject. The pieces are the right length; they
exhibit wonderful "variety and are attuned to a
harmonious key and remarkablo unity of effect.
For the money, there is not the equal of ''House

ries, useful knowledgo, graceful anecdotes, charm
ing essays, alternate in its page3. It is not al
