When the baby died,' we said,
With a sudden, Becret dread,
'Death, bemerciful, and pass
Leave the other" but alas!
While we watched, he waited there
One foot on the golden stair.
..One hand beckoning at the gate,
Till the home was desolate.
Friends say, "It is better so.
Clothed in innocence to go ;
Say, to ease the parting pain,
fEhaf'your loss is but their gain.
Jh. the parents think of this !
But remember more the kiss
Prom the little rose-red lips,
And the print of finger tips,
Left upon a broken toy,
Will remi-J hiui how the boy.
And bis sister, eti armed the days
With their pretty, wiusoine ways.
Only time can give relief
To the weary, lonesome grief
Ood'f sweet uiiniste rot pain
Then shall sing of loss and gain.
Was there ever such a jealous fellow,
always contriving soriio new test to subject
uiy affections too" tsaii Julia Ilarvy to her
sister, Mrs. Fauny Markham, as she handed
her a letter.
It was from Julia's lover, Captain Paul
Wilcox, an officer in an infantry regiment,
who wrote to prepare her to receive him.
He told her that she would find him much
changed, for he had been wounded in the
lop and tlost his left ana ; that lie had
felt it his duty to say that he should not
hold her to her engagement, though lie
loved her as devotedly as ever. Now it
happened that Juli:i had a correspondent in
the army; from whom she discovered that
the captain had received no injuries ; and
that his fctory was concocted purely as ah
additional test of the devoteduess of the
lair one,
We'll pay him off for this trick, Julia,"
paid Mrs. Markham. " Come with me and
1 11 instruct you bow to give him change in
ins own coin.
Shortly after the ladies had retired. Car
tain Wilcox pluming himself on his strata
gem, was alone in the drawing room. He
had buttoned his arm up in his 'coat, afcd
the left sleeve hung empty, whi'e he court
forfeited a halting gait, and put a large
piece of piaster on his left cheek to cover
an luiaginury sabre cut.
In a lew minutes Mrs. Markham appear
ed. "Returned at last" cried she, warmly
th'ikiiig his hand. " My dear Paul."
" There's nut much left of me littw
better than half," said the soldier. ' I left
my poor arm in the West Indies."
Pour, dear Paul," said the lady. 44 And
how is your leg ?"
" V ery poorly, I am troubled with daily
exfoliation of the bone."
" Poor Julia !" she sighed.
"Iiu wiil be much affected in the change
in uic, will she not?" asked the brave Cap
tain. "Oil, dear.no! I was thinking of the
ihamre in her."
; Oi.anein her?"
" What haven't you heard?"
" Not a word."
" Ah ! I see she was afraid to write to
you. She has lost all her beauty."
" Yes you know she was never vaccina
ted. "No and she has had the small-pox ve:
ry badly. Poor Julia. She has lost the
sight of her right eye. Her face is very
tnuc li discolored. Her nose is terribly red."
"A red noe?"
"Yes. Itdosen't matter so much about
her eyes she wears blue spectacles.
"I!lue spectacles and a red nose !" ex
claimed the Captain.
"lutyou don't mind that. Beauty is
nothing, " said Mrs. Markham. who was
ravihiiijfly beatif'ul herself. "You love
ou.iii lor her heart ; you always told her so.
And as you are so maimed and disfigured
yourself, why, you can sympathise with and
console each other, x ou will be a verry
Well assorted couple three arms and three
between you."
"And a red nose and blue spectacles!"
groaned the Captain. '
"IIuh! here comes Julia," said Mrs.
-laikham, " don't appear shocked. Julia,
dear here's the Captain."
The door opened and Julia entered. She

was her nose it glowed with all the

Examining a Teacher.
Mr. Trustee Snickles was sitting in his
doorway, on day, when Saunders, presented
imiiseir teiore mm, a perrect stranger, m
search of a school to keen tor the winter.
'Have you ever kept a school?"
44 No sir," replied Saunders.
'What are your o uaiiScations ?" asked
' I have been through the rule of three
and interest, and can read and spell anv

A Practical Joke. During the late
war, while the army of Tennessee, under
ben. Johnston, lay encamped near Hal ton.
the following rich scene occurred: There
was a very popular dealer in newspapers, a
perfect Urobdignab in size, rivaling Daniel
Lambert iii rotundity of stomach. A regi
ment was there alxiut to leave for Mobile,
and our massive friend had souie business
to transact with the Colonel. So, Miffing
and blowing, he came up a few minutes be
fore the train started. As he came up a
soldier spied him and cried out : Boys,
here he is." Instantly the whole regiment
was on the alert, and shout after shout went
up Here lie is, here lie is! Looking
dumbfounded, the fat man said: "What's
up gentlemen? What have I dorie?"
lou re the very man that stole our big
drum and swallowed it" went up simulta
neously. Struck with surprise, he did not
know whether to laugh or get mad, but fi
nally said : " Well, boys, if you'll stay till
evening, I'll eat you;"
Newspapers. Of all the . amusements
that can possibly be imagined for a hard
working man, after a day's toil, or in its in
tervals, there is nothing like reading an en
tertaining paper. It relieves his heme of
its dulness or sameness, which, in nine ca
ses out often, is whatdrives him to the ale
house, to the ruin of both himself and fam
ily. He is transported into graver, livelier
and more diversified and interesting scenes;
and while he enjoys himself there he for
gets the evils of the moment fully as much
as if he were ever so drunk, with the great
advantage of his money in his pocket, or at
least laid out in real necessaries and comforts
for his wife and family, and without a head
ache. Nay, it accompanies him to his next
day's work, and gives him something else
to think of beside the mechanical drudgery
of his every day's operations, something he
can enjoy while absent.
Trick of an Insane Man. Recently,
a Milwaukee police officer was detailed to
take an insane man to an asylum. The man
went along quietty until the end was reach
ed, when, instead of being delivered to the
officers of the asylum,he very quietly de
livered the astonished officer ; who, before
he had an opportunity for an explanation,
found himself locked up in a cell. and was
told that a strait jacket awaited him if he
made any demonstrations. It was some
time before the officer could get his story
believed and exchange places with the luna
tic, who went off boasting of his skill in out
witting his keeper.
The drunkard exhibits one phase ot a life
of pleasure. , He drinks for the pleasure
of drinking. The social glass is tho seed of
his life of pleasure. He drinks to friend
ship, drinks to myrth, drinks to beauty,
drinks to chivalry, honor and glory ; drinks
to pleasure in all lier forms. The slow-cutting
tortures that pierce him through tell
that pleasure is but a fading rose, which
serves only to hide long, sharp, poLwnous
A Kind-Hearted Tanner.
William Savery, an emiaent minister
among the Quakers, was a tanner by trade.
One night a quantity of hides was stolen
from his tannery, and he had reason to be
lieve that the thief was a quarrelsome
drunken neighbor, called John Smith.
-Next week the following advertisement ap
peared in tne county newspaper :
4 W hoever stole a quantity of hides on
the fifth of this month, is hereby informed
that the owner has a sincere desire to be
his friend. If poverty tempted him to this
laise step, tne owner will keep the whole
transaction secret, and will gladly put him on
the way of obtaining money by means more
likely to pnng him peace ot mind.
This singular advertisement attracted
considerable attention ; but the culprit alone
knew wno Had made the kind otter. When
he read it, his heart melted within him, and
he was filled with sorrow for what he had
done. A few nights afterwards, as the tan
ner s laimly were about retiring to rest,
they heard a timid knock, and when the
door opened there stood John Smith with
a load of hides on his shoulders. Without
looking up, he said : 44 1 have brought these
back, Mr. bavery ; where shall I put them I
41 Wait till I can get a lantern, and I will
go to the barn with thee, he replied;
" then perhaps thou wilt come in and tell
me how this happened. We will see what
can be done for the.
As soon as they were gone out.
prepared some hot cotlee, and placed pies
1 1 - m 1
and meat on the table. Y hen they return
ed f rom the barn, she said: "Neighbor
Smith, I thought some hot supper would
be good for thee." Ho turned his back to
ward her, and did not speak. Alter leaning
against the fire-place in silence a few mo
merits, he said in a choked voice : 44 It is
the first time I ever stole anything, and I
have felt very bad about it. 1 am sure I
did n't once think I should ever come to
what I am. Hut I took to drinking and
men to quarreling, ismce 1 began to go
.i lmi i i i
uou uiii, everyoouy gives me a kick, lou
are the first man that has ever offered me a
helping haLd. My wife is sickly, and my
children starving. You have sent them
many a meal. God bless you! but 3'et I
stole the hides. But I tell you the truth
when I say it is the first time I was ever a
thief." "Let it be the last, my friend,"
replied V llliaia .feavcry. "The secret lies
between ourselves. Thou art still young,
and it is in thy power to make up for lost
time. Promise me that thou wilt hot drink
any intoxicating liquor lor a year, and to
morrow I will emplov thee on good wages.
Thy little boy can pick up stones. Hut eat
a bit now, and drink some hot coffee; per
haps it will keep thee from craving any
thing stronger to-night. Doubtless thou
wilt find it hard at first, but keep up a brave
heart for the sake of thy wife and children,
and it will become easy. V hen thou hast
need of coffee, tell Mary, and she will give
it thee.
The poor fellow tried to cat and drink, but
the food seemed to choke him. Alter vain
ly trying to compose his feeliugs, he bowed
his head on the table, and wept like a chud.
After awhile he ate and drank, and his host
parted with him for the night with the
friendly words, 44 try to do well, John, and
thou wilt always find amend in me. John
i i . i
entered into his employment the next day,
and remained with him many years, a sober,
honest, and steady man. The secret of the
theft was kept between them ; but after
John's death, William Savory told the sto
ry, to prove that evil might be overcome
with good.
The Cheapest Thing in TnE Mar
ket. Many articles in this world are dear,
says the iueiaphis JYvaianche. i'jggs are
1 1 ways dear about Christmas times, and
blackens in the first of the chicken season.
But however. high are meats, birds, fish and
vegetables, there is one commodity that is
always cheap, dirt cheap loyalty ! it
costs literally nothing. It certainly does
not cost money, for the poorest sot in the
lowest groggery who has not a copper to in
vest for his favorite grog, can prate about
his loyalty. Dr. Johnson verv truthfully
remarked that patriotism was the last ref
uge of the scoundrel." The same rtiay now
be said of loyalty, for the biggest scoun
drels the men who are producing strife,
disorder, disunion and anarchy, claim to be
the par excellence of loyalty, as is instanced
by the copperheads of the .North.
Every Word True. It is a ereat and
prevalent error, that children may be left to
run wild in every sort ot company ana
temptations for several years, and then it
will be time enough to break them in.
This mistake makes half our spendthrifts,
gamblers, thieves and drunkards. No man
would deal so with a garden let: no man
would raise a colt or a puppy on such a
principle. Take notice, parents unless
you till the new soil and throw in the good
seed, the devil will have a crop of weeds be
fore you know what is taking place. Look
at the poor children, and think whether you
will leave their safety or ruin at hazard, or
whether you shall not train them ud in the
way they should go.
"Mary," said George to his sweetheart
one evening as he met her at the door, and
before their usual embrace, "Mary, why are
we like the printers in the Journal office
when the matter for the paper is all made

said Mary, with a puzzled look. "Why, it's

George, opening his arms with a confident
There is a great deal of permanent truth
in what Martin Luther said to his wife
Catherine, when she was weeping convul
sively, over the body of their dead daugh

and say, 'God's will be done.' "
A Washington Story.
Mr. Gay, senior of the National Ilote
Washington, bears quite a resemblance to
me late Uen. Uass, upon which is told
good story.
A stranger who supposed that he knew

The General passed out of the building

he was sure he had met Mr. Gav. for th
Senator from Michigan he knew had iust

An Honest Answer. Recently a cler
gyman was preaching in belhist when s
young man in the congregation, gcttin
weary of the sermon, looked at his watch.
Just as he was in the act of examining his
time-piece for the fourth or fifth time, the
pastor, with great earnestness, was urging
the trut h upon the consciences of his hear
ers. 1 oung man, said he, how is it
with you?" Whereupon the young man
with the gold repeater bawled out, in hear
ing of nearly all thecongrregation, 44 A quar
ter past eight." As may be supposed, the
rvitjr of . the assembly was much, disturb
ed tor a time.
A clergyman in Boston recommends put
ting pictures into churches, asking the rich
to adorn them as thev. do their own dwell
mgs, and then open them to all. 1 he best
music in town should be the church music
a part of the debt the rich owe to the poor.
and bless themselves doubly in paying. At
the same time a unitarian clergyman, in
the interior of Mssachusetts. savs : "It is
doubtful whether, with our modern tendency
God can send upon society a greater com
bination of curses than a truely eloquent
preacher,- a ten thousand dollar organ, and
a superb opera choir."
A French, journal gives an amusing illus
tration of the familiar truth that "accounts
differ." By careful study of Cretan des
patches it has ascertained that the total loss
of the Turks during the present insurrec
tion has been one million five hundred thous
and men ; of-the insurgents, forty men. A
similar computation, founded upon the
Turkish despatches, gives a Cretan loss of
three million men at the lowest figures,
against a Turkish loss of five. One does
not often have to split a wider ftifi'erente
than that.
Old Dr. A-
was a quack, and a very
ignorant one. On one occasion he was call
ed by mistake, to attend a council of phy
sicians in a critical case. After considerable
discussion, the opinion was expressed by
one that the patient was convalescent.
When it came to Dr. A '- 'sturn to speak :
Convalescent! said he ; Why that S
notnins serious : I have cured (;onvahsreirf I
in twenty-four hours!"
He who is sore Dressed with temntation
need not flatter hiuiselt that by and by the
temptation will cease, and he is to be deliv
ered from sin ; for temptation will notecase ;
aud help must come, not from change in
outward circumstances, but from strength
given to the inner man, lifting the soul above
all temptation. Thus may help come, it it
comes at all.
Mrs. Partington cannot understand either
Mr. Gladstone or Mr. Disrally, that they
should be so anxious to pass a bill in Parlia
ment to trive the neople universal sunennar.
For her part she thinks there is suffering
enough among the poor people without ma
king it universal. Reform, indeed ! they
should reform themselves first, without
thinking to reform the people.
A good thinsr is told of the President in
Raleigh. While responding in a feeling
manner to the welcome given him he used
the expression. "Let us, my frionds, repair
the breaches" and before he could add
made bv the war." an old woman exclaim
ed, with perfect delight, "bless the dear
man, he has come home again to work at
his old trade."
If you saw a man digging for ores in a
snowdrift, you would say at once he was
crazy. Uiit m what respect does this man
differ from you while you sow the seed of
idleness and dissipation in your youth, and
exect elevated affections and good princi
ples in advancing years.
Once at a coronation scene, a person who
was linDressfiii with the maiesty of human
sovereignty, said to a gentleman beside him :
"Our emperor is very great." The gentle
man replied. "But God is greater." "Yes,"
said the sycophant, "but the emperor n3
young yet.'
