Whilst the widow's wail and the orphan's
Are ascending hp to a throne an high.
But now to return to our own loved land,
The blesSings of Heaven, with liberal hand,
Have been scattered freely, on every. side;
And Plenty reigns thrpugh her border wide.

And - thousands are rolled in its wasteful
Our Eagle still, from his azure throne, behaid the carnage and stood alone; .
And the Dove of Peace, 'mid .these cenflicts

Yet eVer, here are the foot-prints seen,
Where the Angel of • Death in his flight has
And the shadow cast by his raven-plume,
Has enshrouded a part of our land in gloom.
The Pestilence dire, has amongst us walked,
And the wasting Plague has at noon-day
stalked. -
Whilst thousands have sunk to their anal
'Heath the briny' veaves of old Ocean deep,
'For gallant vessels have left our shore,
And gone forth on the deep to be seen no
Oh,. many a noble ship and brave,
Has been swallowed up in the greedy wave ;
Some have been wrecked on - a foreien strand
Some burned in viewof the tempting land,
And loving hearts, have been left to mourn
For those who can ne'er to their arms return.
The tears of affection can ne'er be shed
O'er the cheerless gloom of their ocean-bed,
Now the sea-bird's wail is their funeral strain,
As it blends with the roar of the stormy main.
But our story already,. has grown too long,
And we close for the present our simple song;

Such were a few of the ejaculations poured
out by a. group of men, on the outskirts of a
crowd assembled to witness a grand exhibi
tion of fireWOrks, on the eve of the Fourth
of JOY. The first speaker had picked up
from the, dusty grass a child, who had acci
dentally been knocked dawn - in the general
crowding' and jostling, and who now Jay ap
patently senseless in his arms.

Lille. glanced at the boy,_ Whose lips and
eyelids tren26.l(l, - jhough he lay'perfectly still
- On the cushions.
_Hugh had heard all 3 but it
was nothing new to the deformed child to
hear ridicule and scorn heaped upon him.--
Yet it wounded Jahn not less deeply, for he
had a sensitive spirit, which had grown sore
in its harsh contact with a selfish world.- In
one thing Mrs. Winstan had guessed wrong';
he had no mother in tins wo4l, but as
cared for in some small measure by a tins-
serous, drinking father, and a rough,' but well
meaning sister. , -
Dorothy, the sister, came out to receive
him, soon after the carriage stopped at their
dwelling—a tumbling-down block in the dir
ties street;: of the suburbs. She lifted him
out in her strong, red arms, thanked the lady
for her kindness, in a loud, shrill tone, and
then stood to watch 'the horses as they trot
ted away.
"Oh `Dolly!?' moaned the boy, " please
carry me up stairs ?"
" Yes, yes, you silly child this is what you
get by going to _such places! How long, I
wonder, before you will learn that you are
not like other folks, and can't go amongst
' em P
" Not like other folks !" repeated poor lit
tle Hugh, when his Sister had tucked him up
carefully in his warm attic, and gone down
to prepare a wash fo.r his sprained wrist. He
for;ot for a moment his bodil' pain, in the
pah - s which shot throtto 3 l his heart at these
careless words. a Not like, other folks! no
indeed, lam not.' But , how atn , /to blame
for it I didn't make Myself ! Why did
God ;make me, se I" "
lie raised the blanket from his face, and
peered into the darkness with.a hind of SU
perskitious fear :at the 'question he had invol
untarily asked, for he had not forgotten what
his dead mother had taught him that God
was good, and that he did everything for the
best. -;
4 il don't know what We shall do With
Hugh, to, keep hint out of hasn's way," said
his father, the next morning ",lie has Such
an inteleiable curiosity to see all that is go
ingn on in the World, , that he'll get his.neck
broken among, these city boys... Ulf send him
to ray , sister's cousin in the country to learn
a shoetitaker's trade."
" The best trade in the world for such as
he," replied Dolly. --And so, as soon as the
sprained wrist-was-strong again, little Hugh
was packed.oif to a country. cobblerCs elose
leather-perfumed shop. - , •
It was a nevi_ thing-to him- to be imprison
ed from morning until Tlig,hti Waxing ends,
whittling pegs , or driVing• thern into the tough
soles ef shoes, new or old. ...Not a kind srprd
ever fell on the poor boy's . ear. If he did his
work faithfully - , he received no word or look
of encouragement. If he fell to musing, as
he sometimes did, he was roughly aroused by
a shake, and a growl to the elfeet that he
" didn't earn the salt to his victuals ; should
like to know what he expected to do in - the
world ?"
One Saturday, Hugh had the unusual pd
vilege of half holliday. With the village
bays he could not go to play ; for they had
_once driven him from their green with shouts
of scornful laughter. So he turned down a
shaded Jane, that led to a dark pine wood.—
Through the heart of this wood stole a still
stream of cool water. Upon a mossy knoll,
an: its bank Hugh threw : , himself 'down to
cherish eltd.thouo - hts. •
." To be . a: shoemaker all my days, and stay
in a stived-up shop!" thought he;-" I can't
hear it But what else can Who
cares, for me! Who is there eliat do6snot
laugh - at me? I wish i waedead—so I do.”
He laid his pale < cheek on the soft moss,
and watered it-with bitters tears. As he rai
sed his eyes' at length; they lighted on a. clear
blosSom of the,fringed- gentian. As he took
_flower in his hand, it seemed " to him as
though its fringed blue* eye looked lovit3gly
into his, saying, "God made me 1 .”
" God made = yoli—yes ; made - you sweet
and beautiful, ; 'but - how did he make mi.?"
reasoned" the beWildered boy, whose rebel
lions feeling-a had by ;---
, no , means left him.
Still he.loolted - fixedly into the flower.' •
I don't . lic.2gh, at your htinched shoulders,
Hugh," it seemed to him again to be saying
No--:Nots don't r and if there was'one 'iv : .
ing blue eye that looked as kind as ,yours"—
he stopped, and thought for a moment of.lit r
tie Lills.and . her mother. "But that was on

And with these little magic words, Hugh
ETrang up from his knoll 3 buttoned the flow
er it his vest, and made his.way homeward
to his work.
Five years, have fiown. In the hall of a
village academy, a ,knot of Gphool girls are
discussing a weighty matter, The young

- gc Why, has he nOt as good a right as any

at her side.
" Oh , rirtht "

" Should'he not Make the most ihe gifts

_is unjust Sarah l--
He won the prize fairly, and spoke nobly
.you ought not to be so unkind !"
" I suppose gott think no prize too great
for him," responded Sarah, with a malicious
-little laugh. ."Perhaps he will offer his ser
vices in escorting you to 'the plc-nic next
Monday, in return for your eloquent defenCe

`nonored by such company.'"
" She would indeed be honored, Sarah, by
any, mark of esteem from one whose opinion

girl proudly arching her • graceful neck.—
"Did you never learn those lines of Watts---
I would be measured by my sou/ ;

You are a most unaccountable girl, Ulla

,Sarah, followed by most of her:mates, while
Li returned to the school-roote,' to search
for a missincr book.
Thani; you, Miss Winsta.n !" These
words, s'Oken dmost in her ear, as she'was
(leek, comet! her to lift her
head with a start and a blUsh of, surprise.--
The deformed Hugh, now a young man of
some seventeen years, stood by her chair, ga
-zing at her with those mournful, deep, black
eyes, which had often won her sympathy.
"Bless - you for your words of kindness!
they have done more for me than . a hundred
prizes cduld ! I have leerned that there is at
least;one in the world who, will itidg'
truth—not —not:; sight !"
In .the pulpit: one ,of the principal
churches of .1) rises Sabbath by Sabbath
a pale-faced, high T brewed man, whose defor
,mity is the first feature to catch the eye of a
stranger. It is not until you hear him speak
tirtil you catch, the fire froin his eye, and
the qu,tbusiasrn from his lips, that you forget
w pity the speaker. You do not wonder
them; that he, is willing to come' before the
public eve weekly 'even 'with, the weight of
his natural defects; for who can .think of
these, when once carried away by the tide of
his eloquence '1

LEARNING TO SPELL.—Bad spelling' is dis
creditable. Every young man should be a
master of his native tongue. He that will
not learn to spell the language that is on his
tongue and before his eyes every hour,
shows no great aptitude for the duties of an
intelligent observing man. Bad spelling is
therefore a discreditable indication. It indi
cates a blundering man—a man that cannot
see with his eyes open. Accordingly we
have known the application of more than one
young man, n - tade with great display of pen
_reanship of references, rejected
for his bad spelling. Bad spelling is a very
bad indication. Ho who runs may read it.
A. bright school-boy, utterly,incapable of ap
preciating Your stories of science ; art and lit
erature can see your Wonders. You will
find it, hard to inspire -that boy with any
great respect for your attainments. Bad
spelling is therefore a mortifying and incon
venient defect. We have' known men
thrown into very prominent positions so
ashamed of their deficiency in this respect,
that they never venture to send a letter until
it has been revised by a friend. This-was,
to say the least of it, sufficiently inconvenient.
We say again, learn to spell. Keep your
eyes open when you read, and if any word
is spelt differently from your mode, ascertain
which is right. Keep your dictionaty before
you; and in writing,' whenever you have the
least misgiving about the spelling of a word,
look at it at once, and remember it. Do not
let your laziness get the better of you.
Avery relie.ble correspondent of the Spirit
of the Age vouches for the tiuthfalness of
the following laughable incident which cc
cured in his neighborhood recently;
A aentleman whom we will call Mr. P
residing in one> of the eastern counties of
North Corolina, had raised a patch Of water
melons, but was so much annoyed by the
marauding visits of persons to him unknown,
;that he determined tri find them, oat. On one
night he armed himself with his trusty fire
lock, and took his seat among the vines in
ihe patch to await the approach of the'thief ;
but be unconsciously fell 'asleep ; and while
enjoying a comfortable snooze, "all.seated
'on the ground," a darkey entered and filled
a large bag with choice melons. Looking
around and finding the coast all clear, he con
cluded to sample the - fruit. So he gathered
up one of the largest he could find, and walk
ing up:to what he supposed, to ;be .a stump,
he raised up the, melon ,and ; .left it fall with
smashing force mi . the bald. pate of its right-
;fad owner r thus uncerinooniOnsly awaking
him and frig,htening almost to death.---,-
'Forgetting all about-the thief, he ran to the
'house in the•thost dreadful agony, hallooing,
`as he burst open the door—"old woman t old
woman ! ruined ! I'm dead ! my bead is,
brOken open and mY brains - running out! ! !"
—and - to convince his trembling'and ao'cini
zed spouse, he, be ,, an to • gather from his hair
less head - what he supposed, to be brains ;
when lo he found it only the pulp of a wa."-
ter:melon. lie rushed out then to pursue the'
thief, but the bird had flown.
A HAPPY. EXPERINENT.--A friend told rue,
that, 'among other symptoms of high nervous
excitement, he had been' painfully harrassed
for the want of sleep. To, such a degree had
this proceeded, that if, in the course of. the
day, any occasion led him to his bed-cham
ber, the sight of Ins' bed made him shudder
at-the idea of the restless hours he had pass
ed uponits In this case It was recommen
ded to him to endeavor to fix his thoughts on
_something, at sthe same time vast and simple
—such as the wide expanse of the ocean, or
'the cloudless vault of Heaven—that the lit-
Ile hurried and disturbing images that flitted
before his mind might` be charmed away, !a i r'
hushed to rest by the calming influences of
the absorbing =thought.' Though not at'all a
religious man at the time, this advicesiaggeS
ted to his mind, that if an object al once vast
am', simple was to -be selected; no,orie could:
serve his purposes so well as that J ot
He resolved te make the, trial- and'lliihk
Hhn. The 'result exceeded his most sanguine
hopes; in thinking of God he fell aeleep.- -
Night after night he resorted to the same ex
client The process became delightful,
much so, thatle -used tc , long- fel. the usual
time for retiring, that, be might fall asleep,
as he tanned it in - God. ' What began'as'a
mere „physical operation, grew, by iinpefeep
tibia degrees, into agracious influence. The
same God who was his repose by nighty was
in all his, thoughts by da.y.

EXPANDiNG s CFIEST.—Those in weal
thy- circumstances or who pursue, sedentary
employment' within &Ors, generally USE; their
lungs very liltle, breathe hut verly little into
the chest, and thus, independently of posi
tion, contract a wretchedly narrow, small
chest, and lay the foundation for the loss of
health and beauty. All this can be perfect
ly obviated by a little attention to the Man
ner of breathing. Recollect the hings - are
like a bladder in - their Construction, and can
be stretched open to double their ordina.ry
size, with perfect impunity from consump- -
tion. The agent, and the only agent requi
red is the cairimon air we breathe;suppCSiiiz,
however, that. no obstacle exist; eiternal to
the chest, such as lacing, of tying - around
with stays, or tight dress, or having shonl- -
ders lay upon it. On rising in the morning,'
place yourself in an erect posture; your
chest thrown back ; and shoulders entirely off
