One fine spring day in 1831, I was walk
ing accompanied by a physician, in the gar
dens belonging to the celebrated Lunatic Asy
lum near Paris, conducted by Dr. 8.-. At
the turn of an alley I suddenly found myself
oloso to an old man, on whose arm loaned a
youth, apparently about twenty years of ago.
The countenance of the first wore an ex
pression of profound sadness, while the young
man's. eye gleamed with the wild strange fire
The aged man saluted me with silent cour•
tesy, but the younger ran to me, seized my
hand, and exclaimed, " A glorious day, mon
sieur; the scaffold is ready on the Plaza

cart, that woman with the pale and savage
face ;- that is Queen Carlotta, the wife of Juan
VI., the mother of Don Miguel. 'Tie now

thy blood! But adieu," he added, address

I turned toward the old man, but ho only
shook his head and sighed ; then I questioned
the physician who acoompanied me.
"That young man," he said, is one of the
mostinteresting oases wo have; his history
is a strange ono."

THU RULING PASSION.—On One of the north
ern railroads, there is a conductor •maned S
—, a very clever, sociable, gentlemanly
man, a great favorite with the company be is
connected with, and the travelling public in
general—fond of a joke, quick at repartee,
and faithful in the discharge of his.duties.—
During the past year, as his train, well tilled
with passengers, waa crossing a bridge over
a wide stream some seven or eight feet deep,
the bridge broke down, precipitating the two
patisenger carriages into the stream. As the
passengers emerged from the wreck, they
were,liorne away by the force of the current.
Our eriend S— bad succeeded in catching
hold of some bushes that grow near the stream,
to which ho hold for dear life. A passenger,
less fortunate, came rushing by. 8— ex
tended one hand, saying; r
" Your ticket, sir; give me your ticket."
You can imagine the effect of such a dry
joke, in the midst of the water.
Ttae AND CURE.—A good•looking fellow
was charged with having stolen a watch. It
was his first offence, and ho was ready to
plead guity. The magistrate asked him what
had induced hint to commit the theft. The
The young man replied that, "having been
ill for somo limo, the doctor advised him to
take something. which he accordingly did."
Tho-mngistrato was rather pleased with the
humor of the thing. and asked what had led
him to select a watch.

RHAPSODY.—A poet in a recent poem speaks
of au embrace as—
One kiss—whose stolen svreetnens all language out.
'Twits the wild world of love In ono contact of lips ;
'Twas a whole wadded life, with its joy and Its roof,
In one clasp of the arms, In one pant of the breast;
Twits ocean, the mighty, with wide leagues of foam

This is emphatically true of children.
They will learn with pleasure from the
lips of parents what they deem as drudg
ery to study in the book ; and even if
they have the misfortune to he deprived
of the educational lulvantages which they
have the desire, they cannot fail to grow
intelligent, if they enjoy in childhood
and youth the privilege of listening daily
to the conversation of intelligent people.
Let parents, then, talk mull and talk
well at home. A father who is habitually
silent in his own house, may be, in many
respeets, a wise man, but he is not wise
i n hi s silence. \\'e sometimes see parents,
who are the lifb of every company which
they enter, dull, silent, uninteresting at
ho m e a n umg their children.; I they have
no mental activity and mental stores
sullt6ient, 'for both, let them provide for
their own household. It is better to
instruct children and make them happy
at home, than it is to charm strangers or
amuse friends. A silent house is a dull
plane fir young people—a place from
which they will escape if they can. They
will talk or think of being 'shut up' there;
and the.youth who does not love home is
in danger. Make home, then, a cheerful
and pleasant spot. Light it up with cheer ,
ful, instructive conversation. Father,
mother, talk your best at Ironic.

no_The man who makes a joke without
intending it frequently amuses us more
than the most ingenious of professional
jokers—as when the milkman in a play
is charged with cutting calves brains in
his milk; he answered:—Brains! I never
had such a thing in my head !" It vias
the same sort of a case when the juryman
having asked the judge to excuse him
from serving on account of deafness, the
latter said; "Couldn't you hear my charge
to the grand jury?" Yes, I beard it, but
I couldn't make any sense of it."
