Mother, oh ! how sad and lonely
Is my aching heart to-night;-
Not a star of hope or gladness
Casts upon my ) path its light.
I am weary and forsaken,
Yet, dear mother, you will be
Ever. kind, and true, and loving,
Though they have deserted me
Mother. oh ! how pure and guileless
Was your child one year ago ;
Now look at me see how deeply
I•im laden down with woe.
I was rich with holy virtue
Just one year ago to-day,
But I trusted in Orlando, _
And he led me thus astray.
Friends now turn their faces from me,
They all pass me quickly by;
Friends that once did love me dearly,
All do shun me now, and why?
Is it that he has deceived me,
And betrayed my heart within .
Would that 1 had died in childhood
Than t' have lived in shame and sin
Father, he, ton, doth forsake me,
So doth brother William, too ;
And my darling sister Mary,
Who did love me once so true,
Turns away her head, and slums me,
Mlle will try my heart to cheer ;
Mother, they all wound me deeply,
They will kill me yet, I fear.
Mother, you will not desert me,
Well I know you never will !
Though Orlando has beguiled me
And has gone, yet, mother, still
You will love your erring daughter,
Though her virtue blasted be ;
Yet, through all my hours of sorrow,
Kind and true you've been to me.
Mother, where the willow branches,
Laden with the morning dew,
Lofty sparkles droops and tr , obles,
Lay your daughter, mother true .
Where the summer winds do softly
Make its pearly branches wave,
Let the lost and broken-hearted
Have a deep and silent grave.
tar To litmovz PAIN.—Dr. Hall says
neuralgia of the severest character is
sometimes removed by painting the
parts affected two or three times a day
with a mixture composed of half an
ounce of the tincture of iodine and half
a drachm of the sulphate of morphine.—
One of the most powerful liniments for
the relief of severe pain is made of equal
quantity of spirits of hartshorn, sweet
oil and chloroform ; dip into this a
piece of cotton cloth doubled, about the
size of a silver dollar, lay it on the spot.
hold a handkerchief over the place, so as
to confine the fumes, and the pain im
mediately disappears. Do not let it re
main on over a minute. Shake it well
just before using, and keep the bottle
very closely stopped.
Tama EcoNomy.—At a late Assize in
Ireland two men were condemned to he

one of them addressed the Judge, and
said he had two'favors to ask him.
"What are they?" said his lordship.'

Stephen A. Ainsworth, President of
the Western New York Fruit- Growers'
Society, gives the following account of
his experiments in fish-breeding :
"I have taken a very great interest in
the growing of brook trout artificially in
ponds on my place. I have tried from
seven years' old down to last spring's
hatching, in three different ponds, keep
ing the young fry until two „years ; old
before I put them into the large pond
with the older ones, at which time they
are able to take care of themselves.
The original stock was put in my larger
pond, containing sixty-one square rods
of ground, fourteen feet deep, supplied
from springs three years ago last spring,
1,400 in number, age then from one to
Mir years' old. They weigh now from
one to three pounds each. They have
been fed daily with liver, andrare about
as tame as kittens—come at call, and
•take their food like pigs, throwing
themselves, plear out of the water in
their haste for the food, by the five hun
dred at a time, and even take it out of a
spoon six inches above the water,
Think of seeing five hundred trout, all
at the same instant, weighing from one
to three pounds, and from twelve to
. inches long 1 . The like 'has
never been seen in this country to my
knowledge before. It will well pay the
disciple of Sir Izaak Walton a • long
journey to see ; visitors from hundreds
of miles come to see them—ponds and
fixtures for breeding and growing.
f "The trout spawns in November, De
cember, and January. When on their
spawning beds,l take them and exude
their ova artificially, and impregnate
them with milt from the males, and then
place the spawn in troughs; on gravel
with pure spring water running over
them. They hatch in seventy-eight
days, and commence feeding from forty
to fifty days after, during which time
they live on the egg attached to them.
",Last fall 1 took in • this way about
60,000 eggs, and hatched say 40,000 of
them, which are now from two to, four
inches long. With all things right,
nearly all will hatch in this way. These
will grow to a pound weight in, four
years, with good water and plenty of
"A. two pound trout will furnish
about 8,000 spawn; smaller ones less in
proportion. They commence spawning
when one year old,
"In this way they can be increased
and grown to any extent, and all the
ponds and streams in the country stock
ed to overflowing.
"They can be raised in this way with
great profit for market. Price from four
to six shillings per pound."
OW Some statistics of the Morgue,
the Parisian dead-house, in which all
bodies of unknown persona are exposed
for three days for recognition, have just
been published. They embrace a period
of ten years, during which time 3,334
persons (of whom 2,331 were males)
have been brougbt in; 493 of these were
newly-born infants ; seven-eighths of the
whole identified"; 1,244 were
tween twenty and ferty years of age.
The total number of suicides was 1,766,
of which 1,414 were by drowning, 115 by
hanging, 95 by firearms, 56 with the
fumes of charcoal, 46 by leaping from
high buildings; 16 by sharp instruments,
11 by poison. 7by turning themselves

dr Wheeling, Virginia, is one of the
oddest of all'places. •The Intelligencer
of that city, gives the following sketch
vouching for its accuracy : "We saw
yesterday, going up towards the ..upper
ferry, a team of four animals—a horse,
a pony, a mule, and a Bull. The horse
had the heaves, the pony was blind, the
mule was , lame, and the bull bad no pro
vision for fly,time. In the wagon which,
was an ordinal. , one, sat a white man, a
crippled negro, and a tame skunk. The .
skunk was firmly bound with a whisp of
straw. The white man held the lines,
the team held its own, and 'the nigger

Why the dying never Weep.
The reason the dying never- weep is
because the manufactures of life have
stopped for ever; every gland of the
system has ceased its functions. In al
moat all diseases the liver is the first
manufactory that stops work; oue by
one the others follow, and all the fount
ains of life are at length dried up";
there is no secretion anywhere. So the
eye, in death, weeps not—not that all
affection is dead to the heart, but be
cause there is not a tear drop in it, any
more than there is moisture on the lip.
It is a striking characteristic of that
terrible disease'—the cholera—that the
patient, hoWever suddenly siezed, never
sheds a-tear, even though surrounded by
weeping friends. The great feature of
the disease is the suspension oE the se
cretions of the system, and the, most
,active excretory work, by which the
body is drained of its fluids.
DON'T DANCE,-A plain, unlettered
man, from the back country in the State
of Alabama, came up to Tuscalooia,
and on the Sabbath went to church.
He selected a seat in a convenient slip,
and awaited patiently the commence
ment of the services. Presently the
music of a full.toned organ burst upon
his astonished ear; he bad neverheard
one before.. At the same time, the
gentleman who owned the slip came np
the aisle, with his wife hanging on his
arm. As he approached the door of
-the slip, he motioned the stranger to
give place to the lady. The movement
he did not comprehend, and from the
situation of the lady and gentleman, as
sociated as it was in his mind with the
music, be immediately concluded that a
cotillion or French contra dance, or
some other dance was intended. Rising
partly from his seat, be said to bim :
"Excuse me, sir-excuse me, if you
please I don't dance."
A CINDID URCHIN.—'What did your
mother say, my little man? Did you

mother had given him an invitation to
call upon her, and whose street door
was accordingly opened to his untimely
summons by the urchin.

Joe Stetson was a wild (rollicking fel

was left at home to do chores. Upon a
certain occasion Joe left home to be
back, as he said, that night, Night
came, but Joe did not. The next slay
passed, but, about sunset, Joe camo up,
in the worst candition imaginable—his
clothes dirty and torn, one eye in mourn

appearance of a piece of raw beef than
anything else, Polly met him at the
door, and noticing his appearance, ex
"Why, Joe, what in the world is the

"!Polly, we had the hardest fight, ye

an' then we clinched.—Polly, ain't sup

four o' the most sufficientest licks ye

"Do tell me who whipped, will you?"

ifitir Every woman should be married
to an excellent man. Marriage, it is
true, brings care and wear ; but it is the
ring that is worn that keeps bright, and
the watch that lies unwound that gets
out of order. The sweet sympathies in
volved in the family relation ; the new
energies developed by new responsibili
ties ; the new compensation for all out
lays of strength, bring about a delight
ful play upon the heart and intellect,
which, in their reaction upon the body,
produces an effect that is nothing less
than preservation. Then there is a
higher power than this—one which we
speak of soberly and reverently.
one is completely armed against the en
croaching ills of life who has in his heart
no place for religion. The calmness,
the patience, and the joy and hope that
are in possession of that woman whose
heart is right in its highest relation, can
,fail to preserve and heighten
