MY MOTHER'S (JEAVE.
The trembling daw drops fall
I'pon the shutting flowers. like souls at rest;
Ike stars shine gloriously, and all
Save ice, is blest.
Mother. I lore thy grave !
The violet, with its blossoms bine and mild,
Wave o'er tby bead when shall it wave
Above thy ebild ? i
"lis a bright Bower, yet must
It bright leaves to thecotning tempest bow;
1'iar mother ! tis thine emblem dust
Ii on tby brow.
An J I oould love to die.
To'leave uo tasted life's dark. bitter streams ;
Ey thee, as erst in childhood lie,
And share tby dreams.
And mast I linger here.
To stain the plumage of my sinless years,
And mourn the hope to -childhood dear
With bitter tears?
Aye, must I linger hero.
A lonely branch upon a blasted treo,
. Whose last frail leaf, untimely sere.
Went down with thee ?
Oft from life' withered bower.
In still communion with the past I turn,
And muse on thee, the only flower,
In Memory's urn.
AnJ when the evening pale
Buws like a mourner on the dim blue wave,
I etray to hear the night winds wail
Around thy grave.
Where is thy spirit flown ?
I gaze above thy look is imaged there ;
I listen, and tby gentle tone
Id on the air.
Oh ' come, while here I press
.My brow upon thy grave in those mild
And thrilling tones of tenderness

How my Aunt Haanie cam9 to Marry ilr.
"How did you come to rnarj-y Mr.

Mr. Natiuie Marshall wasn't my aunt,

this work was my cousin SceplK-i), a boy two
or three years younger than myself.
One day when thus employed, we caught
a glimpse of a man with regimentals, riding
swiftly through the wiiod.
"Who can that be?" said Stephen.
"Oh !" said I, in delitrht, '"perhaps It i

My cloud laud was destroyed forever,
from that moment I know that I was uaiy,
uncouth and unattractive, and my-.hcro-ijrernev.caiue;
I ceased to expect him.
I grew older, and was pule, ijkiin, awk
wardly shy. 1 felt my personal defects to a
l-iiiiiul degree, and 1 shunned what society
wa-i attainable to me.
" ben I was eighteen years old I received
? inviution from an aunt who lived iu
tio-ton to visit her. I had never seen her.
and she knew me - ouly by report. She
wished me to come aud speud the winter
Jly grandmother was willing that I should
go. but we were very poor, and it required
a firc:it deal of economy and management to
furnish uie with a wardrobe to visit the city
W!t'i. At last my wardrobe was completed,
and I went to Hoston.
The lamily cf my Aunt Caroline consisted
if herself, her daughter Julia, and the or
phan children of a deceased son. J ulia was
just my aEe, and very pretty. It is a very
bard thing to say but I houestly think my
aunt to whom my personal appearance bad
been described, wanted me to associate with
Julia as a foil to her beauty, and to reside
in the family that 1 might assist in taking
wre of the children. At any rate, when I
Cirne, the single servant was dismissed.
1 he family lived elegantly, but 1 soon
'lund that it was done by the strictest econ
omy. My auut worked hard and managed
'- 1 aud no oue outside of the house dream
ed that their income was as painfully small
aa it was, '-. -,
" Julia had a lover. Mr. Marshall was
very handsome and mighty fine, and I do
not woudor that he appeared very much
like a god to me then. He was but recent
ly acquainted with J ulia when I went there,
but he appeared very much in love with
her. I used to help her dress upon the
evenings on which he came, aud after she
had gone down, looking like an angel, I
used to shed a few quiet tears of sorrow and
loneliness, as I stood and listened to their
happy chat aud gay laughter ringing from
the room below. I was very sure that I
never could be pretty, and I thought no
body would ever love me.
One day Mr. Marshall came to dine. Ex
tra attention was given to the house aad
dinner. My aunt had been very wealthy
for a short time when first married, and
from her husband's failure she had saved a
few things which gave the house an air of
means and style some articles of fine table
silver and some handsome oil paintings I
With my assistance she served the dinner
herself, and managed to be richly,, dressed
to appear at the table. She looked cool
and stately ; but T who had lingered until
the la.-t moment iu the kitchen, making
gravies and serving up vegetables, was so
tired that I could hardly speak. KI never
did talk much, though", so it was uot no
ticed, apparently. Mr. Marshall conversed
of tooks, pictures and music, all of which
Julia was acquainted with, and it was agree
able to listeu to them. I was sorry when
the meal was finished.
i'.r. Marshall turned to look at the pic
tures ou the wall when he arose, and, after
a few moments my aunt commenced clearing
the table. The dishes were put through a
slide in the cupboard into the kitchen. I
helped her to do this. Julia stood looking
out of the window.
When the table was cleared of its dishes
my aunt went out. I sat down and took up
my sewing, thinking that my aunt would be
back in a ta, uncut to ti-ii.ili clearing the ta
ble, and that I should be allowed, during
the afternoon, the place cf guo&t. Mr.
Marshal! spoke to me and asked me to play
backgammon. It was the only game of
pleasure that I knew, and I was delighted
at the thought. I put down my sewing,
and he brought the board and arranged the
game. Julia sat in a corner of the sofa
with some embroidery. Just as we were
ready to play, I looked up and saw that the
table still stood spread with its linen cloth,
aud the cruinh cloth had not been removed.
Julia glanced at it at the satr.c moment aad
then turned serenely back to her embroide
ery. 1 put dovvu the dice box timidly.

He came to the house two or three times
after that, but ucver to spend an evening

Ouo day he drove up to the door in a
splendid sleigh, for it was winter tiuie, and
the sleighing was very good. Julia' was
sitting at the dicing room tire.
"There," said she, jumping tip, "he's
come to take me to drive. Now, i wont go
a step unless he aks my pardou for staying
away so long !"
Her mother showed him into the parlor,
and he asked for me. 1 went in wondering.
He asked uie to go to ride as cooly as if I
had been iu the habit of driving with him
all the days of my life, aud there was some
thing in his manner that would not let me
refuse. 1 went, and he asked me to marry
him. I waited three years for him, for he
was not setiied in business then then we
were married, and 1 have been happy every
day of my life since."
One day he told me why he had not mar
ried J ulia.
"I was pleased with her," said he, "but
when I saw her let you. a guest, leave your
employment with n gentleman, to do her
mother's work, while the sat doing nothing
but some embroidery, I knew she was indo
lent and seitish, and she never looked, pret
ty to me after that moment. If it had not
been for that crumb-cloth, Nannie, I should
probably have married her, ar.d keen as
wretched at I am uojv satisfied. "
Who is a Gentleman.
A gentleman is not merely a person ac
quainted with certain forms and etiquette
of life, easy and self possessed in society,
able to speak and act ud move iu the world
without awkwardness, and free from habits
which are vulgar and in bad tastes. A gen
tleman is something bcyoud this; that
which ties at tie root of every Christian
virtue. It is tl.e thnni-btfiil desire of doilie
in every instance to others as he would that
others should do unto him. He is constant
ly thinking, not indeed how he may give
pleasure, but how he can show reppect to
others how he may avoid hurting their
feelings. When he is in society, ho scru
puously ascertains the position and relations
of every one with whom he comes in con
tact, that he may give to each his due hon
or, his proper position. Ho studies how he
may abstain from allusions, which may
call up disagreeable or offensive associa
tions. A gentleman never alludes to, nor
even appears conscious of any person's de
fects, bodily deformity, inferiority of tajeut
or rank, reputation in the person in whose
cr...nf.- ; nqmit TT f nver assumes anv
superiority to himself; never boasts, makes
a display of his own power, or rank, or ad
vantages such asvs implied in ridicule, or
sarcasm, or abu ?e as he never indulges in
habits or tricks, or inclinations which may
be offensive to others.
A Mighty Good Husband. During
the trial of a ca.e in a citv court, lately, a
witness persisted iu testifying to what his
wile toli him. i.o this, of course, the at
torneys objected, and it was ruled out by
the judge. Ho would proceed acain to tell
"shust how it vas," when the attorney
would sing out, How do you know that'r
"My vile tole me," was the answer. This
was repeated several times. Presently the
iudze. unable to contain himself longer, in
terrupted "suppose your wife was to tell
von the heavens had fallen, what would you

THE POWER OF LOVE.
A KAFIR LEGEXD.
A certain Kafir king married two sisters,
but he loved and esteemed one of them so
much more than the other, that he made
her his chief wife, and she was called the
Queen, and treated with great respect.
The neglected sister was very angry at this
favoritism ; but she strove to hide her jeal
ousy under an appearance of loving devo
tion, and insisted that no one but herself
should take care of the royal children.
When the Queen's son was born, he was
given into her charge, aud the treacherous
woman displayed much affection for the
babe ; but it soon sickened and died ; alike
fate befell a second and a third child, until
the Queen, in great grief, declared that her
sister must never again touch any of the
royal children. .
The King still continued to love his wife
so devotedly that he refused to degrade
her from her rank, although the accidents
which destroyed the successive heirs to his
title gave him the right to replace her by
another wife, who would secure the succes
sion to his family. At length the unfortu
nate Queen gave birth to a fourth son ; but
she was still the victim of an evil fate, for
this child was formed like a toake.
About the same time the jealous sister al
so gave birth to a child, a strong and hand
some boy, and she, therefore, triumphed
over the unlortunate Queen; but even the
charms of the pretty infant could not win
the King's affection from his beloved wife ;
and, despite the remonstrances of the head
men of his nation, he still maintained her in
her chief rauk, and treated her with addi
Years passed by, and the boy grew lusty
and aetive, and was named Unsimba or the
Wild Cat, while the child of the Queen was
known as Umamba or the Snake. This
monster still continued to be the ouly child
of the Queen, and with her became the ob
ject of the King's fondest eare, having ser
vants to attend upon him, anil a house built
for his exclusive use ; while Unsimba, like
his mother, was treated with distrust, and
received no special tokens of his lather's fa
vor. At length Unsimba reached manhood,
and, as is the custom, two damsels, sisters,
and daughters of the King of a distant na
tion, came to look at the young men belong
ing to the country, with the intention of
choociiig husbands from among them. The
eldest of the two wandering princesses selec
ted Unsimba, aud they were betrothed amid
A great feast was made in honor of the
event, and all the young men and womeu
wepe invited. The King presided as host,
and brought with him his favorite Umam
ba. whom he placed beside him in the seat
of honor ; but the damsels ran away shriek
ing with terror at his appearance, and could
only be jiacificd by the repeated assurances
of the kinz that the Suake was his own and
The feast was followed ly a dance, where
according to custom, each damsel was a-k-ed
ir, turn to name the youth whom she
preferred above ail others. One after an
other they proclaimed their choice; but
when the younger princess was also asked to
select- one of the youths present, ail were
amazed and confounded to hear her utter
the natue Uuiatuba.
The young uten whimpered to each other
that the princess, bcinj a stranger, had fir
gotten the names of the guests, aud that
she had ch sen the Snake by mistake, aud
thty secretly warned her of her blunder;
but to their amazement the young girl re
peated her choice even more firmly than
boi'ore. ISven the respect due to the King
could not prevent the guests from exhibiting
their surprise at her choice ; Kut Unsimba
listened with jealous rage, for he deppised
his unfortunate brother, and burned with
anger at the thought thit the wretched
Snake should lie chosen by the princess who
more beautiful and graceful than his own
betrothed, he had also hoped to wed.
When the dance was over, the youngest
princess went straightway to the house of
Umamba ; and the Queen was there.with
her son ; the mother saluted the stranger
kindly, and then said to her, "It is true
that you have chosen ray son at the dance
-but you would not also choose him for your
"And w"hy not?" exclaimed the beautiful
damsel ; "If I love him, may I not take him
for my husband?" Then she smiled gaily
and continued. "Need I fear him ? You
do not think that he will eat me up? I have
uo dread of your snakeson, for I love him."
Then the mother left the house, rejoicing
greatly; and Umamba, in a gentle voiee,
asked the damsel to close the door, and.
spread his sleeping ojat upon the floor.
But the young girl merrily objected
"Why must I obey you? You ought to
wait upon yourself I It is not my duty to
serve you !
But the Snake's Voice was full of tender
sadness and entreaty as it continued to
plead "Nay, but do as I desire you, if you
love me. ill you not hem me I
Then the nriaeess hastened to do as he re
quired, and as she performed the task, the
Snake groaned as if in great anguish. The
voung girl was moved with compassion, and
;entiy unred upon hitu any service that
luicht diminish his pain.
"Can I not help you saye you from this
misery ? she asked in tonus oi loving sym
"Aye," moaned the Snake, as if in great
torment; "hold fait to the pole of the tent,
and with the other hand grasp me firmly, so
that I may straighten myself, and be treed
from this agony.
TJravelv the eirl did as she was desired
she caught the pole firmly, and then grasp
ed the reptile. The smooth skin slipped
between her finsers. and she shuddered
with dread and horror at the touch ; but
her hand clasped fast over the serpent, and
she closed her eves in fear while she strug
gled to prevent the bnake from escaping
from her hold. But in a moment a voice
at her siL bade her look up, and she raised
her eyes to behold a youth of surpassing
beauty standing near her. At his feet lay
the empty skin of a serpent for it was Um

from his vile imprisonmnnt by the daring

was not wholly broken," for if she still dared
to wed him, he had power to reveal him
eMf tn hor lono in his true forui. while he
must continue to appear as a serpent to all
other eyes. Proudly and courageously did
rlmitpl nrnmise to wed him, de
spite his unhappy fate ; and resuming his
serpent form, Umamba hastened with her
to his father, who fondly welcomed the
beautiful girl as the betrothed of his much
loved chili. . -
It was now tiine to commence the wed
ding march, for it is the custom among the
Kafirs for the young girl first to visit the
house of the man whom she intends to mar
ry ; and it the betrothal is accomplished,
the grooui then takes her with much pomp

her as his wife.
The Kine anxiously urged the revellers
to march slowly in consideration of the in
firmities of his unfortunate son : but the
gay youths and maidens soon neglected his
orders, and Umamba and his betrothed
were left far behind. As soon as the pro
cession was out of sight, and the prince was
ate from observation, he divested himself
of his serpeut skin, and the lovers joyously
proceeded on tbeir way rejoicing in their
mutual affection, until they nearcd the vil

on sharing the honors of her sister, aud took
her due place at the feast with her betroth
ed at her side.
Cries of dension r.nd horror were uttered
bv everv toncue, and the damsel was con-
deincd for her monstrous choice ; but amid
univerfal execration the calmly assumed
her station at the dance with the abhorred
serpent-form at her side. Then, through
the clamor ana indignation, a voice power
ful, but gentle, was heard, saying. "Lay
your hand upon me!"
ihe princess recognized the voice and
obeyed. She turned and laid her hand gen
tly aud lovingly upoti the serpent and iu an
nstant a beautiful youth clasped her in his
arms, proclaiming to the astounded assem
bly, that the charm which had so long bound
him was at leiisth broken. J he devoted
love of the maiden had freed him, and he
would never again be compelled to assume
the degraded form of Umamba the Suake.
