Some years ago whets 1 was young,
And Mrs. Jones was Miss Delaney;
When Wedlook's canopy was young
With curtains hem the loom of biley ;
I used to paint bit'y future life
With most poetical precision.—
My special wonder of a wife ;
My happy days; my nights Elysian.
I SIM 111 lady rather small,
(A Jr so was my strict abhorrence.)
With fuzed hair contrived to fall
In cake's= ringlets, a-ia Lawrence;
A blonde complexion; eyes that drew
Prom Auntie clouds their azure brightneam
The footle Venus; arras whose htte
Was perfect in its milky whiteness !
I saw a party quite select—
There might have been a baker's dozen:
A parson of the ruling beet;
A bride's-amid, and • city cousin
A fun* speech to me and mine,
(Its meaning I could scarce discover I
A taste of cake, a sip of wine :
Some kissing—and the Beene was over !
I saw a baby—one--no more;
A cherub pictured, tether faintly,
Besides.. a pallid dame who wore
A countenance eatremily saintly.
I sow—but nothing could I hear,
Except the softest prattle, may be—
The merest breath upon the ear— •
So quiet was that blessed baby.
I see a woman, rather tall
And yet, I own, a comely lady ;
Complexion—such as I must call
(To be sleety:a little shady, ,
A band not handsome, yet confessed
A generous one for lore or pity;
A nimble foot, and, neatly dressed
In No. 6, extremely pretty!
I .ee a group of boys and girls
Asseufhled round the knee paternal;
With ruddy cheeks-sad tangled curls,
And toanners not at all supernal.
And onp has reached a manly size ;
And tine aspires to woman's stature;
And one is quite a recent prise,
And all abound in human nature
The boys are hard to keep in train ;
The girls are often very trying;
And baby—unlike the cherubim—
Seems very fond of steady crying!—
And yet the precious little one,
Ills mother's dear. despotic master,
la wOrth a thousand babies done
In Varian a. Alabaster!
- "
Anti oft the stately dame and I,
When laughing o'er our early dreaming,
And marking as the years by,
llow idle was our youthful scheming—
CotAas the wiser Power that knew.
How care each earthly joy enhances,
And gives ns blessings rich and true,
And better far than all our fancies!

that of a pink-pocket. That moustache and

in a sett with him. When Paul takes his tick

are warned against a pick-pocket now in this

and remarking to his neighbor that lie does
not deem it safe to remain with such company

Nest we find a German in a deep sleep ender

After much effort we succeed in waking him.

face in.that double seat. It has been seen on
this line of travel fur years. It is • sort of
shuttlecock between the battledores of New
York and Cincinnati, and comes and goes al
most with the regularity of the Poute agents.
The owner of that pretty face has Bn:crested an

Is one of the multitude of her class that travel
up and down this great thoroughfare capturing
such noodles as that—one of those "whose
pathway leads down to death," and unless some
vision of the good and pure of that home which
he has left far sway rises between them, she
and her companions will lodides downward in
that horrible course which persisted in blights
and kills the body, and damns the soul. It is
not pleasant to weave
,threads of this color in
my rough web, but they -are so very numerous
I could not BM to notice them. Very small boy
traveling shine with a card, sewed oa his cap,
containing the following, written in a plain
band, "Conductors please inform this boy of the
changes of cars and dicing stations. He goes
to No. street, Providence. R. L, and is
ticketed through." In questioning 'ski boy we ,
found the card a superfluity, he 'knowing all
about the route, the changes, Ike., much better
this the majority of passenger. He knew
that kin ticket carried him over the 'las foot

and all that sort of thing. In einiversaties we
firsed him wail posted sad feat. The reasoner
this precocity was very, evillest when he is

Up the road eastward, Wynkyn could
look out of his attic window and see the
house of Ezekiel P. It was built of hewed
logs, two-stories, and while children played
on the white fish floor, martins wen- chat
tering under the gables. Ezekiel P. was
one of humanity's best mould. The brown
ness of his face served as a back-ground for
a smile that would take any man's heart at
forty rods, and a rich round eye which no
mean man could front. lie rarely read
anything, took no newspaper. could scarce
ly write his own name, and yet he was in

We venture to say that the best literature
and intelligence in our periodicals is the
last read. . A few read the important news,
and the many gather their information by
ear. There a ere well-informed men before
there wait a press used to publish truth, and
abused to flood the land with 'trash. There
were then l.ig-settled men like Ezekiel P
whose ward was as good as a mortgage, who
never gave a note, never took a receipt,
and if a well-paid man claimed his debt,
again, lie wan made to feel his receipt on
his conscience, when it shriveled under
his glare of an honest pair of eyes.
Jost opposite F:zekiel's door was the
school-house, and one of the great high
ways to the west lay between. Many a
traveler stopped under the oak to drink of
his well, and the lip‘ of every school-child
had touched the gourd that hung on the
curb. Many a snow-ball had been flung
from his brawny arm as a challenge for the
schcxli-boys to bring out the halls Which
they had soaked in the brook the night
before, and left to harden in the frost. He
sent 'them on the little fellows as soft as
soda-biscuits, but toward the hale wood
choppers he made them whiz as if his grip
had put with them a few oondenaed flashes
of lightning. His theory was that there
should be a military department connect
ed with the school, and an abler Professor
never trained men for the Mexican cam
paign. In the summer that brawny arm
flung many an apple over into- the parade
ground as an invitation to beseige his pick
et-tepee, for the capture of . Junings and
Wine.liaps. , When his cider-mill was drip

shook his hickory fist as if fresh from Water

was something said about Mute 'andles and

him, as smoothly as possible, over the fence
on a coterie of unshorn sheep who tipped
him into a warm nest of nettles! and the
loud whoop which rose again, caused the
little man whose head was jammed- into
his hat to think of Potawatamies.
"Can't afford it, Maria."
"But you might if you would only think
so, Walter," pleaded the young, wife.
"I can't do it," the husband retorted,
very emphatically. "It would oast ten or
twelyarshillings at the very lowest, to put
up such a rite, and the old bars will an
swer every purpose."
"No, they wont, Walter. The neigh
bors' children very often leave the bars
down, and then stray cattle come into the
gar4en. We may lose more than the price
of agate in one hour, if a cow should hap
pen to get in when I am away."
"I should like to know who leaves the
bars dOwn," said Walter, very threatening
ly. '"The same children might leave a
gate open."
"But we can have a gate made to close
of its own accord, with a weight or a spring,"
suggested the wife. "John Niles has had
a gate put up in his yard."
But I ain't John Niles, my dear," Wal
ter wished his wife to remember.
"But his family is as large as yours, and
his wages are not so high."
. "Never. mind about that. I tell you I
can't afford it—at any rate, not. at. present.
And with this Walter started off for his
Waiter Gray was a young man, about
thirty; an industrious mechanic; had been
married some eight years, and had an in
teresting family. He meant to provide
well for those who depended upon him,
and in a measure he did so. But there
were many little comforts which at times
they really needed, and which in the end
might have proved a source of saving.—
And more too ; it might have added to his
own happiness had he felt able to grant
these little requests. But he couldn't af t
ford it ; at least so he thought, and wheth
er he thought so with sound judgment the
sequel will prove.
The gate which his wife had been so
anxious to have put up, was needed at the
entrance of the garden back of the house,
where there were only a pair of short bars.
The children often came through there,
Wi l er at illin4ftiegewM rnWwayTisl
which those bars were apt to be left down,
and_it was only by extreme watchfulness
on her part that the garden was preserved.
She had spoke several times to her hus
band about it, but he felt that he couldn't
af f ord it. She must keep her eyes upon
the spot, and see that the bars were kept
Only a few dayi after this, Mrs. Gray
asked her husband if he was going to hire
a pew in the church for the followmg year,
and he told her that he did not think he
"But you can hire half of one. We can
have half of Mr. Niles' pew for a guinea."
, ; ,"I can't afford it," was Walter's reply.
"I should get no great good from the ser
vices any way."
"Don't say so, husband. You certainly
Wouldn't wish to live, and bringitp your
children, where there was no religious in- .
tluence. If you reap the benefits of good
Christian institutions, you ought certainly
to reel willing to help support them."
"So I would be willing if I could afford
it : but 1 can't."
Mrs. Gray looked very serious, and seem
ed to hesitate, as though there were a sub
ject upon her mind which she felt delicate
about broaching.
"Walter," she said at last, tremulously,
hut still resolutely, "you have two pounds
a week ?"
"And bow much does it take of that to
feed us!"
"I don't kOw. I'm sure. I only know
that it take' all to feed and clothe us, and
pay up the interest on the house."
"I haven't had a new dress since last
autumn ; and I was reckoning up yester
day bow much we had spent ibr the child
ren, and found it to be only three pounds
for the last tea months, I have worked
over some of cousin John's clothes for
Charles, and Lucinda jumps into Mary's
dreolea as the latter outgrows them."
"That's all very well," replied Walter,
a little te.tily. "I understand my own
business, and know just what I can afford,
and what I cee't. While I have the pay
ments to make on my house I must econ
omize—l must enerosomize," he repeated,
very decidedly. d o,
"And I would have you economize," re
turned the wife ; "but do not forget that
all is not economy which many call so. I
think it might be a source of great -saving
to put a gate up at the baclre
"Stop I" interrupted Waltee, with it ner
vous motion. "You've said titough &bogie
this. I know my means."
"Let me say one word," urged Maria.—
There was an earnestness in her tonewhich
caused her husband to stopand listen. "If
you will
.give me a guinea a week, I will
agree to furnish all the provisions for the
household, and clothe myself and chil
dren. I will do this for one year. That
will leave you seventy pounds with which

Walter was upon the point of denying
this result of the 6180, but he seer, upon a
moment's reflection that from his wife's
statement the deduction was correct, so he
denied the statement.

Walter, with a slight tinge of unbelief in
his tone.
"No," returned theother. could not.
I used to be always ready for any such

"Well," pursued: Niles, "one noon, as I

fifteen shillings with me, and I hated to

money to spare, she could wait. I know
she was disappointed, but I thought she
could get along, And I went away. That
evening I went into the saloon, and we
had a fine social time. It cost me just
seven-and-sixpence. I paid the money
willingly—without even a thought of ob

"The words smote me to the heart. I
could not afford five shillings to dress my
little child, but I would afford any amount
for the useless entertainment of others.—
The crown which ray needy wife could not
get when she asked for it, I paid away, al
most twice-told, for nothing. But it taught
me a lesson. I opened my eyes, and I have
kept them open. On the very next morn

could not afford any more for the beer

They had reached the prden fence,. and
by the dim starlight, Walter could see a
horned beast trampling among his sweet
corn. The bars had been either left down.
or hooked down, and a stray cow had got
in. They drove her out. and then Niles
went home. Walter saw that the beast
had done considerable damage. but he was
not angry, for he had something of more
importance to think of. He went and
sat down beneath an apple-tree and pon
"Bless me. if hehasn't put the ease down
