What are you good for, my brave little man?
Answer that question for me if you can—
Yon, with your angers as white as a nun,
You, with your ringlets as bright as the sun
All the day long with your busy ,contriving,
Into all mischief and fun you are driving:
'pee if your wise little noddle can tell
What you are good for—now ponder it wail.
Over the carpet the dear little feet
Came with a patter to climb onmy seat;
Two merry eyie, full of frolic and glee,
Ender their lashes looked up unto me;
Two little hands, pressing soft on my face,
Drew mo down close in a loving embrace;
Two rosy — Bps gave the answer so true—
" Good love to you, mama; good to lore you."
The Girl With The Calico Drese
A lig for your ut i kiten
With their ve satins„and
Theirdiamends, fee, and_rarle,
And tbeirmilllner fig-cries William
They may ehina at a party or ball,
Emblazoned with half they possess
But give me in place of them all,
The girl with the calico dress.
She la pl as a.partridge, and fair.
As those In the earliest bloom;
Her teeth will with ivory compare,
And heett breath with the clover perfume.
Her step is as free and as light
As the fawn whom the heaters hard press,
And her oye is as soft and as bright—
girl in tha calico dress. .
Your dandles and foplingsnmy sneer
Itt her simple and modest attire,
But the chsrmashe permits to appear
Would set a whole Iceberg on fire.
She. can dance, but she never allows
The hugging,,the squeeze. and caress;
She is saving all these for her spouse— _I
My girl with the calico dress.
She Is cheerful, warmtheartcd and true,
And kind to.her father afid mother;
She studies how much she can do
Tor her sweet little eieter and brother.
If you want a companion for life,
To comfort, enliven and bless,
She is just the right sort of a wife—
My girl with the calico dress.
" Then that is settled. Here, Miles,
see who is to supercede yourself," and
his employer tossed him the open letter.
Miles looked at it—did his eyes deceive
him? no, they did not—it was the hand
writing of Mr. Cook, Alla's father, and
asking for -employment. It was he, for
there was - his name, Wm. Cook, at the
bottom of the page, in chafacters too
plain to be mistaken. Miles looked be
•wildered, and My. Lockwood,. noticing
,it, hastened to say ." Perhaps you. have
not beard of his reverse of fortune. I
supposed you knew of it, though I did
not hear of it until quite recently. My
informant told me Mr. cook was sick
nearly a year, and his wife and daugh l
ter had to wholly support the family,
as there was hardly enough left from the
wreck to move With. Mr. Cook's pride
must be somewhat humbled. I think,
and he glanced at his clerk, for Mr.
Lockwood had heard, from a relative
of his who lived near Mr. Cook's at that
;time, why Miles was out of employ
This relative had often heard Mr.
Lockwood express the wish that he
could find a clerk so steady, honest and
trustworthy as he believed 'Miles to be.
He consequently, wrote to Mr. Lock
wood as soon as he heard, that Miles
was turned away, stating what he could
gather of the circumstances. But as
Miles-did not know this, he did not
notice the side glance, nor heed the last
remark. • Then, too he' was thinking of
Alla, of the great changre in her life
since he last pressed her to his breast,
and received her soul-cheering words,
which; in that dark hour of desponden
cy, were so- greatly needed; and, since
then, she perhaps had seen hours as
dark and dreary and had needed cheer
ing words from him as much. Oh! low
he longed to fiy to her, to' hold her in
his arms again and tell her how deeply,
how truly he loved her, how much he
had thought of her since they had been
separated. He longed to take her to
himself and shield her from this rude
blast of adversity, from this rough con
tact with -the world. Then came a
thought of the proud father who had
barred him from all this happiness,
who hadturned him out of employment
when he so greatly needed it, and angri
ly driven him frolia his house for noth
ing only because he was not wealthy
like himself, and for a few moments
nature triumphed and he gloried in the
prospect Which this new phase of things
presented, to have this. proud man a
clerk under himself. But it was only
for a few moments, and his better self
conquered. Mr. Cook's past unkind
ness was forgotten; he only thought of
him as he was before that happened,
his kind benefactor, his almost father
--and his face brightened as he thought
how he could help him retrieve his
former position, without wounding his
pride; and he said :
4 ' Mr. • Lockwood, I have a favor to
'ask," and he hesitated hardly know
ing how to ask. it.
"GO on," said the-gentleman ad
dressed, who, was sealing a letter, the
reply to Mr. Cook's, in which he had
offered him' the situation,
" Yon know Mr. Cook to be fully
competent to fill the place you ham
been so kind as to offer me, doyou nor"
said Miles. '
" Yes, I think he is, °Ate would be
as soon as' he should become acquainted
with the regulations of the house."
" Then I wish you to give him this
place and let me keep my old one here.'
'" No, Granger, you cannot mean that,'
said Mr. Lockwood in a somewhat ex
cited manner. "-I knew something of
Mr. Cook's haughty and insolent man
ner towardsyou, and now I give you
an opportunity, to triumph over him.
thought you would rejoice to know that
he was going to take your place. miles,
you cannot be so generous to one who
has so deeply wronged you; no; I can
not permit it."
" But I wish it, greatly wish it, Mr.
Lockwood ; yes,. I beg
~ you to grant me
this favor. He is more needy of
the greater salary than I am, and sure
ly his pride roust be sufficiently hum
bled without this ; and it would place
us both in an unhappy situation. In
fact I cannot accept your generous offer
under such circmp'tances."
Mr. Lockwood did not reply for sev
eral moments, and ,when he did, he
said, " Well, Miles, have it asyon wish,
though I think you wrong yourself by
" Better suffer wrong, than to do
wrong," was the young man's only re
ply'as he 'went about hia work, just as

THE VILLAGE MAGEE=
BY V/RA. DARLING
the clerks began to gat her in, and Mr.
Lockwood wrote unuthei Icitt_r which
made quite a happy change in Mr.
Cook's affairs, though it was nearly a
year after this before he knew anything
of it. Miles was, after all, rewarded by
Mr. Lockwood for his genercaFity--lor
that gentlenian made his ,salary equal
to the head clerk's though he kept his
old position. - As soon as Mr. Cook re
ceived the letter which brought him
such a welcome and Splendid offer, he
hastened to the city to enter upon' his
new duties, and to his surprise, the first
one he saw, as
,he entered Mr. Lock
wood's establishment, was Miles Gran
ger. lie had not even heard from him
since that hour, when, ilia fit of passion
he drove him from- his house; but lie
had, long ago even, before his change
fortune—whichof made a change in the
man—repented of that act of unkind
ness, and would have asked his forgiv
nese, had he known where -- to have
found him; and since he had been.
placed in dependent circumstances him
self, his conscience had smote him the
More severely, and he had hoped some
day to meet him, when he would con
fess his fault, ask his forgivness, and
welcome Linn to his confidence and
friendship again. He had told Ails as
much, and she was overjoyed to hear it,
but 4 she could. not convey the happy in
telligence to Miles, for she., herself, did
not know where to find him, yet she
waited with a loving, hopeful, heart,
knowing that he would be true to his
first love,. and return to seek her some
time; she did not know how, or when,-
but then she felt the assurance strong
that it would be so.
Mr. Cook, though by nature a proud,
quick tempered man, had a noble heart,
and in his wealthier day, he was gener
ousto a fault; but to his pride and love
of wealth were often subjected many of
the better qualities of his nature; but
his great reverse of fortune had com
pletely subdued his pride of possession,
and made him a wiser and a better man.
He looked upon property now as valua
ble only for the comfort and convenien
ces of life that it Would bring for him
self, and those that he loved. Riches
no longer made the person. -
This bitter trial of adversity had been
a severe school, but in it he had learned
many a good lesson. He could now:
see worth, without wealth, people, with-;
opt property. It needed but a few mo
ments to complete the work of recon
ciliation between Mr. Cook and Miles
Granger. As soon as possible after this
renewal of friendship,Miles hastened to
meet Alia. It. , is needless to speak. of
the joyful meeting of those tvito who had
loved so long and so truly. Reader, if
- you have ever loved, and after an ab
sence of two years from the one dearer
to you than aught else on earth, have
met that loved one, you know what that
meeting was; it' not,'volumea of words
could not make you know it. - I
A year later, and on the front of the
Lockwood establishment appeared a
new sign, the names of Lockwood and
Granger, as partners in the mercantile
business. Then Miles claimed the love
ly Alla for his bride; and he could not
have been prouder of her as the mer
chant's daughter, than he was as the
,tillage teacher, when he saw how dear
ly she was loved by the children and
their parents, who gathered around to
bid her a last good-by.
Tn years later and the old book store
in - the village of Fairfield underwent a
thorough renovation, and on" its- front
appeared the name of Cook & Summers.
A year alter Alla's marriage, old Mr.
Summers went to his long home;and
Saul, being his only heir, became the
poisessor of his great wealth. He, after
graduating with the highest honors at
one of the first colleges in the eastern.
Stlites, spent over a year traveling
through Europe ; then, being tired of
wandering alone, he returned for his
little blue eyed Nellie, and gathered her
to his great warm heartto hold there
till death should take her from him.
And after a trip together to some of the
important places in our own country;
they returned to settle down on the old
homestead of their father's which Saul
had previously purchased, with Nellie's
approval, for Alla's sake, knowing it
would be so sweet for her to visit them
there. Finally Mr. Cook consented to
share this home with them, and togeth
er they went into business on the very
spot where thirteen years before Mr.
Cook had failed. Miles and Alla with
their two children often visit them, and
together they talk over the changes
these years , have wrought, and the hap
piness they now enjoy ; then caul av
=erts that he and Nellie owe ail their
happiness to the village teacher—as he,
no doubt would have been now, where
everybody prophesied he would be—in
a State prison—but for her.
A STRANGE LORD.—In 1774 Burke's!
Peerage, or its predecessor. if it was not'
extant at that time, was better under

the Bible. In that year, Dr. Webster
was a _popular preacher of the Kirk of
Scotland, in Edinburg. Business bro't
him to London, and one day, when pass

induced him to make an effort to see
them. None - were adMitted without an
order, except noblemen's servants.

her to marry me then ;-- - but she sent
them all back, insensible thing, and
said she'd no notion Omen. I told her
I had oceans of money and goods, and
tried to frighten her with a growl; but
she answered she wasn't brought up
in the woods to be scared by the screech
of an owl. I called her a beggar and
everything that was bad, I slighted her
features and form, till at length I
succeded in getting her mad, and she ra
ged, like a ship in a storm. And then
in a moment I turned and smiled, and
r - ailed her my angel and all, she fell
into my arms like a wearisome child, and
exclaimed : "We'll marry this Fall."

A long time ago, I untertook the su

Men tt , , including of course, their wear
er. It was the heigth of my ambition
that the ruau should be exactly fitted
liy hit , shirts, concerning which he be
gan to make complaints just one .noon
after I took him in charge.
"What is the matter with them?" I
meekly inquired. •
"There isn't a single one that fits
Totally "unsuspicious of the inherent
wickedness of the article concerned, I
flattered myself: that the difficulty
would be easily remedied. tlo 1 ripped
here and basted there, pullet/ up his
shoulder, and pulled down that, till I
thought had got it. Mistaken mor
tal !it would not fit. I made another
series of experiments with equally fu
tile results. , Then I consulted one or
two friends, and felt sure I had at last
discovered where the shoe—L mean the
shirt—pinched. I applied a cure, but
the thing wasn't cured. Nrt I em
ployed a tailor to tiy 1116 s - ill. Not
one whit better. The man was getting,
desperate. As my dernier resort, I sum
moned a council of sewing Society wo
men, and we went into committee of
the wholei. For hours we expended
our united wits on a single shirt, often
subjecting the luckless owner to suc
cessive trials of the garment.
"Don't that now fit your neck ex
actly ." 1 asked the head ofthe company,
as for the forty-dith time we gathered
around our victim.
'• 1 N14•, yes," with a charming smile
of rellec.and twisting his head about
experimentally. "Really, I can't sug
gest any improvement."
"ph! heirui!" exclaimed I, clap
ping my hanc.s.
"Suppose,' jsaid one of the wise wo
men, looking at me over her glasses as
it some important idea had struck her;
"suppose we cut out a new shirt on- the
improved plan, and if that suits, take a
pattern from it."
"Agreed," cried I, quite jubilant,
and ran to a chest for the cottbn.
So we cut. basted, and tried on—sew
ed and tried on—starched, ironed, and
"Capital !" affirmed our representa
tive of the lordly sex. "'Not a thread
amiss. ,It is the first time in my life
that a shirt hos exactly fitted me."
As a grateful memorial, I made up
six new ones after that identical pattern.
We entered on our triumphant epoch.
Woe worth that day! Must I own
that before forty-eight hours had passed,
that "exactly fitted" individual called
me aside, and pointed with cruel sig
nificance to his neck.
"I am very sorry," with the blandest
air in the world. '•I suppose your mis
take came from your great desire not to
"Mistake! choke ynu!" echoed I
convulsively, a little tempted to try the
"Don't be troubled. It requires only
a slight alteration—a trifle cut out of
the binding, that's all. You see it's
"Why couldn't he have found it out
before" I said to myself. Then aloud
with great dignity : "Tell me precisely'
how much to cut out."
"Well, I ehould say Just about an
"Just about an inch,', I muttered sar
castically, adding with a sudden burst
of indignation, "I believe the mischief
is all iu your neck, which dilates and
contracts on purpose to torment me."
He smiled kindly on my wrathful
tears, and I—well—when the shirt was
`rough dry,' I dutifully cut out the
inch, basted the binding, and tried it
"That is just - what it wanted. It
does very nicely now;you see:" working
his chi up and duwn. .
"Yea I see. I did before."
"Practice makes perfect, and this
time you hit the nail On the head."
When the change was completed, he
once more tried on the shirt, and un
equivocally informed me that it 'fitted
to a T.' So I made the same alteration
in the other five, and and sat down to
take a bit of comfort.
Can you imagine what next happen
ed? In the course of a fortnight the
man gave me an invitation to ride with
him ; which I was only too happy to
accept. How extremely gracious and
agreeable he was ! I might have sus
pected that something was coming.—
From one thing to another he led the
conversation, till finally he approached
the old hateful topic; (he had on one
of his new shirts.)
"I don't mind my vexation," I re
marked innocently "now that you are
at last suited." Then' supposing the
matter at rest I turned to a pleasanter
subject. But coming back to the shirt
again, his faceassumed such a deprecat
ing loot, that I exclaimed in alarm:
" Nothing ails them now, I hope."
"Only a very little thing, and easily
altered. In your fear of getting them
too large, they are a trifle todsmall; on
ly a trifle."
My heart swelled, but I uttered not a
word. When we reached home I made
him measure off with his forefinger
how much he wished inserted. The
shirt he had on happened to be the iden
tical oue I had first altered. I was for
tunate enough to discover in my - work
basket the very piece I had cut out. So
I sewed it in again, repeating to myself
all the while, "Oh! the crotchetyness
of man !" Will you believe me when
I whisper it confidentially, that after
all this, 'For many years, I alternated -be

[We extract from a lengthy and inter
esting letter from a formertritizen of
this county to his father the following
information touching the situation In
the South. :
"The most of the freedmen are doing
well, and would do still better if the
whites were inclined, without compul
sion, to allow them their rights and
dues. The whites are all clamoring for
the removal of the I'. S. troops, but I
think their removal, before the rights
and freetiom of the negro arepermanen
tly, and stably vranted, would be an un
wise, and prejudicial policy ; for the
sight of "blue jacket" has a most con
trolling and beneficial infitonce over
the passions and prejudices a; southern
assumption and arrogance.
"The negro is free ; and it - does not
become us to inquire hoiv he obtained
hi 3 emancipation ; but on the other
hand it is imperative upon reasonable,
and just men to endeavor to ameliorate
the condition of all such as are striving
to conform to their new status, and who
show a laudable desire for profiting by
their newly acquired privileges as well
"Instead of opposing and defeating
any of their well-directed el forts, it is
incumbent upon all to assist in advan
cing them, therehy eneourag mg them
to become good and law-abiding citi
zens ; for the better the citizen the bet
ter the country.
"I am heartily glad slavery is at an
end, and thereby the late civil war has
been an inestimable blessing to the
United States en masse.
"No great, and deeply rooted nation
al evil was ever, and probably never
will be, thoroughly eradicated without
severe struggles and eomnactions that

dation ; and unless the government is
Strongly sustained and immovably ad
justed, it often goes With it gad the peo
ple suffer over its ruins. Bur, thanks to
our glorious constitution, the govern
ment stands in all its strength, and
symmetry, potent in war, and protec
tive in peace.
;,`That all men are born "free and
equal" I think a badly expressed sen
tence as well as 'wanting in truth.
But the words ,"created with equal
rights," are not only expressive of a
fact, but are true and plain ; for all
rights. accorded to a member of society
are more acquired than natural, equally
belonging to each and every member of
the society or state. Hence, that these
acquired rights should be in justice,
and in equality, they are applicable to
each and all who ,are goo,' members
of society ; therefore the negro, no lon
ger being a slave but a member of so
ciety or state, ought in justice and in
equality to be protected in the enjoy
ment of these rights and in the - pursuit
of happiness, it they conform to the
laws established for the general welfare
"Passion and prejudice are the dis
tinguishing features of almost every
public document. They showed them
selves in the Governor's Message; (Miss
issippi) and had the southern delegation
been admitted to seats in I ,'.."ongress, it
would have been but the eontinuance
of strife, and discord, until an eternal
quietus had been laid upon slavery, and
the negro either expatriated, or admit
ted to suffrage.
"Of course the southern 'states . will
again be admitted to the national coun
cils, but policy forbids until; the negro
question is forever settled, and the
southern people realize that they have
been in a state of rebellion, and are still
rebels, who must show their repentance
by faith in the constitution and though
good works.- _
"From the general appearance. of our
country no one will suppose there had
been a rebellion and protracted war, al
though they would realize that a
change had taken place in the status of
the negro, from seeing our streets filled
with them, idly lounging about, or traf
ficking upon their own account.
"Many of them are making money
by their industry, and by speculations.
Some have stores, groceries, livery sta
bles, hacks, drays, barber shops, dEc.,
here is a white "man's store; next to it
a negro's ; and not much difference in
their stock. There goes a negro's dray,
and there a white man's; ')ut no.one
can tell the difference in tho sleekness
of the mutes, nor the strength of the
hack. There is some fast driving.—

Who rides your race home, and does
a share of the betting ? freedmen.—
Whose load of corn, and to whom does
this load of hay belong? "to me sir,"
answers a freedman, or a dozen or more
reply at once "want to buy?"
In fact, the negro is adapting himself
to the new state of his affairs more
readily, than any one would suppose
possible, who bad seen him as a slave,
but the stimulus of knowing that ones
labor will be remunerative to ones self,
and beneficia to ones family; is a potent
incentive to industry and thrift. And
further, to show that such an incentive
is applicable, I need only remark, that
freedmen, who left their fomer owners,
and hired for wages to some one else,
have generally done better, and been
more trustworthy than they ever were
before, and less fault is found with their
labor than with such as remained with
their did masters.
'To feel that .labor is remunerative,
and beneficial, is the mainspring of all
free action. The statesman, the lawyer,
the physician, the warriop, the diVine,
the daily laborer, all know -this.
"And, par parenthesis, I ;tank if the
confederate soldier and citizn had had
some such certain stimulus :hey would
have done better; but as Soon as the
excitement of the moment passed away,
and reality began to oppose, they felt
that their cause wasrash and uncertain,
and most of them wished they had
heeded the oft repeated advit'e of 'Un
ion men" and fought for our rights (if
any had been infringed awn), before
our judiciary, and under the constitu
tion. However, having engaged in a
bad cause they thought it more manly
to .ink or swim with it.
"Well, the event eradicated a large
grown evil, and future generations will

ment is stable, and competQat to main
