AMERICAN TEA COMPANY
51 Vesey Street, New York;
:Simla its organization, has created a new era in the
Wholesaling Teas in this Country.
They hare introduce' their selections of Teas, and
are selling them at not over Two Cents (.02 Cents)

PR ICE asked.
Another peclliarity of the company is that their
TeA TASTER not only devotes his time to the selec-
tion of their Teas as to quality, value, and particu
lar styles for particular localities of country, but he
helps the TEA buyer to choose out of their enormous
stork such TEAS as are. best adapted to his peculiar
f ounts, and not only this, but points out to, him the
best bargains. It is easy to see the incalculable ad
vantage a TEA BITTER has in this establishment over
all others. If he is no judge of TEA, or the MARKET.
if his time is valuable, he has all the benefits of a well
organized system of doing business, of an immense
capital, of the judgment of a professional Tea:Taster,
and the knowledge of superior salesmen.
This enables all Tea buyers—no matter if they
are thousands of miles from this market—to pur

Rose-flushed, warm-fancied June,
What is the charm in your deep eyes
That captive takes with sweet surprise,
Every heart beneath the moon ?
Where the sunlight burns and quivers
O'she face of drowsy rivers,
On ose banks, with fresh dew wet,
Sits the blue-eyed violet.

Lifts its beauties to the sun,

Their white lips unclose.

Of delightful ha : m:Mies: .

Of the winds in the leaves,

Over the banks of fragrant flowers,
That Witlt' warm pulsation tremble.
Seeking vainly fur, the hours
Their winged edora to disemble.
In the mead the weary sun
Laughs in flowers; let us tread
Where the now sp . ring-tide item iron
Life and beauty from the dead
Wonder of that last sad Spring.
That, to Winter wandering.

Where all last night the nightingale

To the rosebush in the vale:

The morn came mounting from the sea
With eager eye and:winged feet
To•learn what wonder this might be.

So on he strode through the streets of the

tide of human life pressing on the thoughtless
and careless. There was business in all its

features. She lay apparently near expiration,
while everything ,around the room gave the,

old lady was kneeling by the bed, and her eyes
never wandered frotn the pale features of the
dying girl. Every motion of the patient's lip
was noticed, with an anxiety and care that, if
aught human could do it, would have blunted
to the dying oue the sharp sorrows of that

"Not yet," was the reply.
"God forgive me," said the patient, "for

'Tis bard to die estranged from those we love ;
but," she added, and a soft smile stole over her
face, "there is no sorrow there."
At this moment the sound of ascending foot
steps were heard, and presently the stranger
we have noticed in the commencement of our
tale, entered. Now life seemed to have enter

her couch and gazed fixedly and wildly at the

But beholding the serious aspect of Robert,
she still pressed him fur the story of the inter

The name of' the girl who thus closed a

knelt at the shrine of her beauty. ' Among
them was one unknown to the princely throng.
He had met her at the ball ; he won her atten
tion; and for weeks he visited her, not indeed
is his own, but an assumed character. She
dared to lore him, and knowing her father's
disposition—to marry him.
After their Union, Sir Ralph Fisher was
made acquainted with the circumstance. His
pride was rouged, his proud ambitious schemes
were levelled to the dust,and in the bitterness
of his heart, Lear-like, he breathed out curses
on his daughter. •
"Seoner 'would I cast her fortune to the beg
tgar, or bury it in the ocean, than one farthing
shmild grace that girl !" said he, and he shut
his heart up from all compassion.
The result was as might be expected. The
husband of Lucy was a man who "lives by his
wits; a heartless, soulless villain, who was con
tent to live on the sufferings and losses of oth
ers." The gaining 'table and every haunt of
vice was his favorite resort, and there he revel
led and sported in the pollution of his soul.—
Oh ! then did the delusive hopes, that had
buoyed up that young girl's mind, fade away
one by one ! Her husband left her—and then,
.desolate and broken.hearted, she turned her
footsteps to her father's house, only to be re-
pulsed with scorn and hatred; and then bitter
want and disease gnawed .at her heart-strings

lustre from her eye, and the canker was busy
with her heart-strings. The cause of her dis
'iress, when all hopes of eurichintt himself
were fled, had forsaken her—be was gone none
knew whither—and the eyes of the poor girl
were closed by the very bands which first bore
her infant weight.
Imagination can create no sorrows which
touch the human heart like those of real life.
A SAFE BET.
About the time of the first influx of emigre-
tion into California, a little scene occurred on
the steamer Tennessee, during one of her up
ward cruises in the Pacific Ocean, which we
do no remember of seeing in Print.
• One of those moral fungi on society, known
in general parlance by the sobriquet of "black
legs," had spread a tempting bait, in the way
of a little game of pharo, before a promiscuous
assemblage of suckers, hoosiers, buckeyes, corn -
crackers, Ste.; who were on there way to New
Among the number was a sturdy Kentuckian
who, in his simple suit of homespun, stood
watching the game with interest. Presently
thrutsing his hands into the depths of his over
coat pocket, he produced a ,ereasy, well worn,
but withal, well lined pocket-book, and taking
from its recesses a bill, be extended it to the
dealer, saying :
"Here, old feller, I lost ten that time and
here's the money."
"How is that ?" exclaimed the sharper, "I
saw you make no bet."
"Wal, you see, I sez to myself, sez I, that
jack's uncommonly lucky keard, and durn my
picters if I don't bet a ten on it; and so the
pesky jack lost, and you've got my money."
Thinking he had picked up a green horn,
the gambler gave a sly wink, at the few "know
ing ones" who encircled him, and they went
on with the game.
After a few deals, our corner:leiter Smacked
his fist emphatically on the table, and exclaim
ed : •
"Dod drabbit, thar goes another sawbuck
on the plaguey jack. Here, take it ole hoss
With an ill suppressedgrin of satisfaction,
the sharper took the money and added :it to the
rapidly growing pile before him.
In the due course of time the jack came up
triumphant, and our yeoman, jumping up
nearly to the ear lines, cracked his heels to
gether and exclaimed
"By holey ! "I won fifty that time! So
fork over, you lovely old boss, you!"
The "sell" was so evident, that the gambler
had nothing else to do than pay the money,
which he did, with the remark that "the next
time the Kentuckian made a bet, he wanted
him to put the money down."
LITTLE JOHNNY'S PRAYER
A poor widow called her four little children
to her one morning and said to them : "My
dear children,- this morning I cangive you
nothing to eat; there is no more bread, nor
meat, nor even a potato in the house. I have
worked for . you, as hard as ever I could, and
now I feel so ill I can do no more. You can

Little Johnny, being very hungry, was much
troubled by what, his mother had said. As he
was on his way to school he kneeled down and
prayed aloud : •
"0 God, my heavenly Father, and my Savi

me, a little child, pray I Our mother has no
bread, nor meat, nor even• a potato ; do give
us something, that we and our dear mother
may not starve Help us, 0 Lord I Thou
art rich and good,:and canst easily help, us; and
thou bast promised to hear the cry of the poor
and needy; so help and hear us, for they, dear
son's sake 1"
This was Johnny's simple prayer. After
saying it he hurried on to school. When he
returned home in the middle of the day, what
was his:surprise and joy to . see a great loaf of
bread, a large dish of meat, and a basketful of
potatoes upon the table !
"Dear mother," said he "did not an angel
bring all these things to you through the win
"No," said the mother, "but God heard you
when you were praying.
A lady was near the place, where you could
'not see her, but she could both see and hear
you—and so she sent all these things. She
was the, angel that. God sent to help us in our
need. And now, dear children, let us return
thanks to God, and trust in him always.'
