A modest rose•bnd opening;
And beaming with delight ;

Did'st ever have a beau 7
I'd like to kiwi you deafly,
But it would acme you sot'
Bright flowers bloomed around her;
For it was Joyous spring, • •,
A thousand birds were warbling, -
And she did with theta sing:

A pretty little deistic

I saw another, older
- By three sweet years than she;
Oh I she was matchless, lovely !
Full bloomed maturity!
Her form wae round and slender,
Her hmiom snowy white, •
Her hair in glossy ringlets,
Her eyes were aporklitig bright,
Her areas was spotless muslin,
' Infringed with nicest cure,
A wreath of golden'flowers
Encircled her dark hair;

I wonder how she walked;

AMONG the energetic workers of the present
day, the teetotalers are unquestionnbly entl.
tied to take a first place. Those who are ni
teetotalers cheerfully admit this. 'We hat ,
seen the fruits cf their labors, and can bet
witness that they are rood. We have eec
them raise from the very sink of vice and tb -
pravity men whom every other missiontu •
had abandollod in despair. We know mat
whom-they have elevated from pattporistic ini , .
comfort, from pollution into oleauliness, fro]
degradation into respectability, from habitat• I
drunkendess into habitual sobriety.

could tell, of mon dragged front the slough r '

are not literary; 'the hardest workers amen

But teetotal literature is advancing, and th
day may come when some gailluS will Uri:
from the ran of the teetotalers, to portra
the condition of the drunkard, and, stir up
universal desire to alloriao their lot, an
rescue ,them from , the depths of viols ,an
misery. ' . •
We shall never forget n tale of A rescue
drunkard, told by ono of the teetotal lecturers
ft was a statement of his own experience, an
its truth can at thislday be attested by them
Snarls. The story was told in a rather broad,
uncouth dialect, for the speaker had OrigintAlh
been a factory workman, and had raised Lim
self by his own industry and energy, chiell
in this very teetotal cause, to a respeCtabh
kind_ highly useful position in society. We;
cl.spair of being able to import to our reader.;
the full force of the Ltory as told by thadmr•
rater, or to produce anything liko.the tbriliiul
effect which he produced upon the meeting it
question—for there is an electric int:lnoue-li
tho spoken word, which is lost when it' is at
tempted to commit them to the written paper,:
ri I was out on my first teetotal journey,''.,
said the narrator, "and vrasqvery new to m;
tobtalori. I remember that I woe dressed In f

pearl buttons—just a Ili* factory Ind. full
enthusiasm for the cause; but that is worth!. •
gmd drill. as you know, ;
• "I rest:lied a tomn in the northern part
the country. It was a fine taunt:ter orcnity;,
when I wont out into the street to .I.l.lraso the
people. I borrowed a chair front a poor wo..
man, after being rebuffed from several door s ,
and carrying if into an open space, near Which
some ahiltirrinwere playing;and laboring pee-'
ple . eauntering about sifter their day's labor,
I planted the chair there, ma r mite.' it, and •
began to spttak—.not without great flutterings

Ai' the sound of my voice the ohildren
coated from their play end gathered round .
me, tind several of the saunterers' nitro turned' .
aside to bear'svliat Ilrud got to say. '•At first,'
soma thought I web selling pfiis ;_otherS took
me for a Mormon; and when I began to talk
Abut teetotalism—this new tangled doctrine'
of .abitai'uing !altogether fnoni intoxicating,
drink-my alendoe audninee began to , giggle, .
some of .thein jeered at - iefatianjaciket,' and
several of tben4uffairred outright: This was
ttot . a veirinoouraging begnitaing for.
speaker. ; ; .
4 . While I , teas still talking 'I sew , alirunlien ' l l
man swaggering along in the dietetic° with e
lot of boys' about hint willing out names; And
provoking hint to: swear 'at them in return.".,
lie seemed to nOtico the little group eollentek
about mo o atnd,like most drunken' men when
they s ce a crowd, he at once made toward us.
Now, thought I, my evening's :Work' is fairly
spoilt; this drUnken,follow wiThput the finisher
tomy.speech ; and as ho came c rolling_along._
some of the crowd gleefully called out, as if
they expeotod a row; Ilere comes Chntley
Brown—a real teetotaler: InirrahTor Charley!'
The children sot up a shout; the drunken
man staggered in among the audience; and I
went on with my speech. ,i 1•
" I could not keep my egos ar the man ;
he was a frightful example of the' degradation
to which habitual drunliennees - nuap bring one.
Ile was tall and powerfully madS, but ho wits
olothed in rags, dirty and unkempt, and his
face" was one mass of rod blotch,. The man
fixed hie drunken Oyes upon mums I spoke,
and I folt encouraged by hiiatMation, degra-•
ded and •outcast l though he looked. I went
on, in homely wait* drawing a ploture of the
wretched life of the drunkard, his beggared
home, his neglected children, and hie ruined
wife; and urged again and again that the
onl3e radical cure wale the teetotal one—absti
nence at once and forever from all intoxicating
"By this time, some other tipsy men had
joined the audience, and I was. told that a
beer shcip keeper ras among 'that:l'; Who kept
up a Oro of interruptions shouting out,. It's
a lie!' You're a fool!' and suoh like; and
pieces of rubbish and dirt began to be thrown
at mo from the outskirts of Atte ciotrd,
"At this, tho drunken man, wbom,,the
crowd had saluted by the name of
strode forward, and pushing hiS way up to
where I stood, stretched forth his hand to me.
My first thought Was, that ho meant to pull
me down from my chair, and the delighted
audience thought so too ; but the man called
out instead, that I must shakl bandy with
him,' which I did at once ; and then the man,
clapping me on the shoulder, caged out, fib
on; good lad, and let Charley 'Brown see the
man that dares to meddle wi' your
" As I afterward learnt, this Charley was
the terror of hie neighborhood ;,he was the
greatest fighter in the place, and hie bashed
faeo'bora many evidences of Lis pugilism as
well as of his drunkenness. So his patronage
at once quelled the ripinglusults of the crowd,'
and I who permitted quietly to Babb' my ad.
dress. At the end; I offered to take tho names
of any persons aresent who might be disposed
to jointhe'Teetotal- Society, and to ray sur
prise—.lo in:v.ll4)26st. say. dismay—the only
one who offeredlo join Wa9 the drunken man
Charley.' I, of ciurze, regard.l his taking
the pledge as a joke, and offered'. to defer. it
until the following 'Morning. t field lie,
tnyr, Now—Pro took _Ma
pledge—l confess reluctantly , , 'and amidst
numb laughter. No ono dared- to follow his
example—it seemed'oniy too laidicroue.
"Well, I returned the chair to the poor
woman from whom I had, borrowed it, and
was aboht to proceed towards my. humble
lodging; but Charley would not leave me.
Be insisted en accompanying me, arm in arm,
across the. market place, down the high street
—people coming to their doors to sae its pass,
and wondering what,neiv mischief that drunk
en pest had been brewing. Charley oven
insisted on my going to his hquse to ace his
wife and family.' I consented to go, for I
found I could not shako Lim off; and I was
of ward glad I went.
tpit.,yens it. troduccd to the Drunkard's Home,
tuna a more destitute, wretched home I never
entered. Down several stops from the Street,
in a house situated in one of the poorest dis
tricts of the place, I landed on the clay floor
of Charley Brown's hovel ! his wife, ragged
and heart broken, eat by the hearth with
crying child on her knee, and others about
her feet. There was scarcely a scrap of fur
niture in the room; ivhad' been broken to
pieces during the drunken outbreaks of he'' ,
husband, or pawned by him, to supply his.
ravenous appetite for drink. The children
wore ragged and dirty. There was no place
for me to sit down upon, but I stood for a few
minutes and told the trembling wife what dna
my errand to the town, what her husband had
that night promised me—that he would en
tirely abstain from drink for the future; and,
turning to him, said I—' Charley, I hope your
will keep your promise liken man I willb
said be lam deterrpined that I will, and
you shall see.' I confess that I despaired 1
the case seemed so hopeless. ' Nevertheless, I
tried to hope, and I encouraged hies as well
es I could,.and urged his wife to aid him in
Lis good resolution.
"The poor , woman told me her brill and
pitiful story. When she ,married Charley
Brown, he-was. the handsomest fellow in the
place, and one of the best worknien, - though
rather 'gay.' Ho wee a bootniaker by' trade,.
and when be stuck to his work be could make
abundnut wngoe. , But luutterly, , -Ito had .been
making very short time, and everything that
he made, as well ne all their furniture And
moat of their olutbirig, had gone for drink. It
Wits a story similar to thoesande more—fit to

and found Charley tit his wolf, Ire woe note

" Of course, I inquired into the' cause of
the immenso improvement which I sow every
where around me, in the wife and children,
la the furniture of the \dwelling, and 'in the
air of comfort which pervaded the place. The
story was Boon told. Charlei had kept-the
pledge. It was a terribfe struggle with. Lim
at first; but he is a man of a strong will and
great force of purpose; so he persevered—
gave up his former acquaintances—abandoned
thin drinking housee i iand stuck to his work.
You know Charles is a capital workman—the
best bootmaker in the plape, -sir. So the
wages came in on Saturday nights regular.
We soon redeemed our .furniture and eight
day clook, which lay in pledge; boughtbetter
food and better clothes, and -a month or two
-since we removed to this bettei house. We
have now all that we need to make us eininfort•
able, and if Charles perseveres, by God's
blessing, we shall bean honor to the cause in
this place, sir.- Only last night Charles was
speaking of sending the youngest boy to
eeliool, where the others already are ; and
then.we shall be all in the way of becoming
wiser and better.. Oh, sir, it was a blessed
day for us, that which brought you to this
place, and led Charles to take that pledge. It
has been the 'making of us all.' And the
tears were now standing full in her eyes, and
dropping down her cheeks. For *, I was
quite overcome by her story, and felt more
encouraged to persevere , in- the work than
over I hod done before. , • .
"Charley soon made Lis appearance; he
hod been 'carrying home some of his • work.
The 'alteration in his appearance was so-great
that I could scarcely have recognized him; he,
was clean and well dressed, and on conversing
with Lim I found him intelligent and manly—
really a fine.hetirted fellow at bottom, though
his better qualities ae a man hati,so long been
obscured and blighted by the accursed drink..
We had some delightful conver.,sationlogether;

long and painful inquiry. Nothing definite,
however, was elicited. But'although the theft
was not brought home to any one, more than
fifty persons were diScharged on suspicion.

The gentlemen -immediately Communicated
with the police authorities; the tailor was
waited upon, underwent a long examination,

that the waist-coat piece was part of a 'job

in the heart of ono of those packages, which.
might have been sent to any part of Europe

this, after crossing twelve thousand miles * of '

but is forwarded to the very tows, consigned
to the very firm of whom Burrows was &ser
vant, and thus the letter fulls into the hands
of his family for whom it was intended, and
answers all the purposes for which it was
written. This singular combination of events,
I say, appears almost miraculous, yet the re- -
suit should, while inculcating hope and trust
iu the Almighty Creator anddispolier of good,
teach the lesson that mercy is neither restrict

our sup - posed-righteousness hare-claim upon
Heaven for any speciality of favors.
