TO A MOTH.
Alas! little moth,
I am loth
To let such an atom as you
Raise my wrath,
But pmy, ,
Why you nibble my very best blue ?
Where you come froin's at pu.w.le to me;
What use in the world exo you be,
Except, as I state,
Folks to aggravate.
And you know the assertion is true;
Formy wife, who's as mild
As a child, •
Comes to me with a wo-begone face;
You tip it
And not it,
Until the thing is quite a disgrace.
Then into our coffers you pop,
Unseen with your gimlet nose,
Like a sleeve,
As I live,
Or a cullender tneking the clothes.
Then her very best chinchilla boa,
By which she sets very greet inks,
Flies in bits. when she goes in the air,
Quite ruimd, fur vou have been there.
1V hat, tile deuce,
What's the use •
Of those coats or those breeches to you?
Beware, if I catch you,
I'll match you,
And preciously double-tnill you.
Why not fly in tiro sunshine and light,
You hove wino, why then surely you inigtif,
And revel 'midst flowers
With much more ecstatic delight ?
Why not live as an insect should do
In the cup of a violet blue?
Or take a short ride,
On the tide
Of a stream in some dark leafy wood?
Just try it for once,
Ifyou're not a dunce,
And you'll find it will do your health good;
Or dance with the gents in the ring,
To the music in the twilight they sing,
And without aspersion,
Seek other diversion,.
And don't at man take such a fling:
But I've made up my mind, so that's flat,
130 it coat, breeches, fur, or a hat,
That you bore,
11l take you someday by surprise;
I'll so poppet:your nob,
That I'll finish your job,
And you'll die as a thief ever dies.
A LITTLE LOVE AFFAIR.
BY WALTER GAY.
lie was a daguerreotypist. Ile said "he
could buff a plate, and take a picture 83 well as
the next man." And who doubted him ?
Not the next man," surely, for he happened to
be a book-seller, and did'nt understand any•
thing at all about daguerrutyping.
"Well our duguerrentypist was a jovial,
hearty, good-looking fellow ; and withal a real
laved nis profession as an art, and
not merely as a mechanical business. 1-le wua
pleased with the poe.ty of his occupation, and
sought to ennoble it, by connecting with it eve.

cellent in practice. And whenever he saw a

And while one of the 'fbir sea,' was seated he
fore the 'Camera,' our dagui•rreotypist would
peep through at her, a much longer time than
was necessary to arrange the 'apparatus:—
"He did this," he said, "so as to be certain of
a good impression." Then he was such an en
thusinstic chap, always fancied he saw a legion
of daguerreotypes of himself; dancing in every
woman's eyes he chanced to look into.
Our daguerreatypist was called John Coop
er, by his father; by his mother; Mr.
Cooper, by his debtors; and Jack by Ms friends.
The ladies called him all sorts of sweet names,
and most prominent of which was that of 'the
dearest creature in the world.'
Now one of Jack's female friends was nun•
ed Caroline Dormilly, and Jack had known
her ever since she was a little girl. Of course
their long acquaintanceship had made them
warm friends. "lie liked her," he said, "very
much, but it could not be said of him that he
loved her, according to the general meaning of
that term-8111M had he concluded to marry
her, for many reasons—the chief one was, be
cause she was engaged to be married to Eu
gene Chewsong," who was called a very hand
some young man, and certainly was very to
mantic and very sentimental.
Caroline was very much attached to Eugene,
because her disposition sus similarly roman
tic, and there was no one she knew who could
talk about the stars in such languishing strains
as "her dear Eugene." He felt very happy
in his love, and in hope of his union with Caro.
line being speedily consummated. And but
out thing troubled bin. ; and that one thing
was our friend, Jack Cooper.
You see, Jack used to cull upon Caroline
and her parents very often; mid being welcom•
ed as a brother by Carry, and us a son by the
old folks, he used to be very intimate and much
at home. •
Now, altho' this was all right enough. yet
Eugene grew jealous, as all romantic young
men do, when they get an uppurtudity, fur they
seem to think that nu courtship can he perti2ct
without a tinge of jealousy or misfortune.
So one evening Carry gave a large party, to
which the daguerreutypist and Eugene were of
We don't intend to give a long tedious de•
seriptiun of the Imrty, because it was not dif
ferent from other• parties. The little children
were assembled, us is custutnary, in an upper
room, and they were singing—
" Oats, peas, beans and barley grows,"
while down stairs there was the usual congre.
widen of women dressed in white, and women
dressea in black, pretty women and ugly wo•
mep, young men and grandfathers, men with
bald heads, and men whose heads never be.wl
An awkward reserve prevailed, as usual on
all occasions of the kind, in their commence
ment. One young man ventures to say to a
lady, that it's 'very cold'—to which she re
plies 'yeth thir'—and then some one else asks
her is she is fond of music, and again she says
And thus a chilly exclusiveness is maintain
ed until the lady of the house brings in a large
dinner plate and whirls it readily round on the
floor, when nn- old gentleman rushes to catch
it before it falls, and a young ge n tleman does
the same; when they both get confused, and
entangling their legs, both fall to the fluor,
causing a hearty laugh, and the commence
ment of the evening's amusement.
Then came the usual games of 'pawn, 'fox
and geese,' the., the., in one of which persons
are selected in turn, to stand outside the par
lor door, in the cold, and wait for somebody to
come and kiss them—and some facetious young
lady, when it comes her turn, will take great
pains to name the handsomest gentleman in
the room as the person she would like to kiss ;
and when he comes out of the parlor she'll
scream very prettily, and feign to run away
from him in fear, (hoping he will follow her,)
and then feels much vexed when she finds the
handsome gentleman is not at all disputed to
run after her; but, OH the contrary, very coolly
walks buck into the parlor without kissing her.
She is so much annoyed at this, that during
the evening she is sure to exclaim that she
"don't think Mr. So and So," (the handsome
gent) "at all good looking."
It happened that while they were playing
one of these games, Carry's turn came to stand
outside the parlor door and be kissed.
It occured in this way. Mr. Chewsong had
been called out by some young lady, and hav
ing received the usual dose of lip nectar. he
called fur his darling Carry, and when she
came out he kissed her, "as in duty bound you
know ;" but then he told her that he should'itt
like to have her kissed by anybody else, and
ventured to recommend that she should either
call for hint or for some very aged gentleman.
So he went back into the parlor, walking
through it quickly, until he came to the other
door, which he carefully opened, and then
peeped out to see who Carry had chosen. And
who had she chosen ? NVlty, our friend Jack
Cooper, the daguerreotypist. there he
was kissing Carry as affectionate as you please.
Here was a breeze. Whew I It was too
much for Chewsong. He couldn't stand it.—
He thought of doing something desperate on
the spot; but restraining himself, he shortly

kiss that took all the juice out of his lips.

room in a much ditferent mood than that in
which we left EtTene. And as prepared to re•

before he took off his pantaloons. Let every

an important ;Joint, and should not be alighted.
As Jack Cooper was a bachelor, ho lived as
many bachelors do—he had a room to lodge in,
and usually took his meals at the restaurants—
but frequently the family down stairs used to
invite Jack to breakfast with them, and dine
or sup—or would often send hint up something
in the shape of hot biscuit, or a plate of prin.
cakes, in the morning before he went out.—
Therctore, Jack lived very comfortable, and as
he was very sociable, all the people around
him caught the infection, and became equally
lively and friendly. And if everybody would
follow Jack Cooper's example, nod act like
congenial human beings, instead of cold mar
