Now, Ifidfl, a short vara I'll jast apiD yon, Aji hapiMjii't- on onr very last rnn, 'Boat a boy as a mn-'s aoul h.-.dinhim, Or else I'm a boo uf a gua! From Liverpool port ont three days, ladi*, * The good ship floating over the deep, The Rede*, bright with -uu-hinc above us. The watera beneath na asleep.

Strong ns iron, nnd steady as quick, With a couple of bushy black eyebrows, And eyes fierce as those of Old Kick! One diiy he comes up from below deck, A grot-pin* a Ltd by tho arm, A poor Httle ragged young urchin, As ought to be home with his mnnn! An* the mate asks tho boy, pretty roughly, How he dnr'd for to be stow'd away? A t-heatin* the owners aud captain, S-Uin', rutin", mid all without pay!" Tbe lad had a face bright and sunny, An' a pair of blue eyes ].'..*■ a girl's, An' looks up at at the scowling first mate, boys. An* shakes back his long shining curb-! Au' says he, in n voico clear nnd pretty, " My stepfather brought mo abonrd, An' hid me aw:iy down the .stairs there. For to keep me he couldn't afford. "An* he told the big ship would tike me To Halifnx town, oh, so far! An' he said, ' Kow tho Lord is your Father, iVii. lives where tho good angels ore!' " "Its a lie!"

" Wh.it'-t fnxu age?" says one son of the briue. "And your uaine?" says another old sidtash. Says the Bini.il chap, " I'm Frank - <* just turut-d uiue!" " Oh, my eyes!" says another bronzed seamau . To the male, who seemed. atagger*d .. his-sself, " Let him go free to old Novy Scoshy, Au* I'll work out his passage myself!" " Belay!" says tho mate, " shut your mouth, j::/;-;; I'll s;iil this hdruersift, bet your life! An* I'll get thu/tie on to ye somehow, As square us a fork i.i-- u knife! Then a knitUng Lis black bruw_ with anger, He tumbles the poor slip below, An' says ho, "P'raps to-morrow '11 change you; If it d**n't back to Fnglaud you go!" / I took hhn some dinner, be sure, mates; Jast think—only -doe yean* of age!

But some of these meu here about?" Then that pair o' blu«- eyes, bright and winning, Clear and ah tdy with innocent youth, .Look* up at the mate's bushy eyebrows. An* says he, "Sir, I've told yon the truth!'' "Twarn't no use—the mato didn't believe him, Though every man else did aboard; With rough h_ud by the collar he seized him. And cried "You shall hang, by the Lortl!" An' he enatrh'd his watch out of hta jvoekft, J< st as if h ' 1 ■■ - -i -1 ■ i-vin; a knife: "If in ten minutes more yoa dout apeak, lad, There'a tho rope! and good-by to dear life!

Amen!" And for all tho bright gold of the Indies I wouldn't ha' heard him agen! An' says he, he'd finished, uprising, An* lifting his blue eyes above, "Dear Lord Jesus, oh, take me to heaven. Back again to my own mother's love!" For a minute or two, like to magic, Wc stood every man like tho dead, Then baak to tho mate's face comes running The life blood again, warm and red. Off his feet was that lad sudden lifted, An' clasped to the mate's rugged breast, And his husky voice mutter'd, "God bless you!" As his lips to hid forehead heprcss'd. If the ship hadn't been a good sailor, Alt' gono by herself right along. All had gono to old Davy, fur all, lads Wus guther'd aronud in that throng. Like a man, says tbe mate, " God forgive me. That ever I used yoa so hard; It's myself as had ought to be strung up Taunt and euro to that nngly old yard!" " You believe ma now?" then said the yonngster. "Bulievoyou!"—he kisa'd him once more; i "You'd have laid down your life for the truth, lad! Believe you from now evermore!" An' p'rups, mates, he waan't thought much oa All that day, and the rest .*f the trip; P'rups ha paid, after all, for his passage! P'raps ho wasn't the pet of the ship!

The stinJ fell over, an 1 th- vase (a gift from my dead mother) was shattered. " Yon naughty boy!" I cried angrily, " Yoa d**aerve to be whipped. Pick up those pieces instAotly and put them in the coal-hod." lie stooped, .csrc-ully picked up tho fragment*,, carried them away, anil waftgone some tima. When he returned it was with something tightly cltt-tped in his hand. Coming to me he phuyoA a five t---aa fiicce in my. lap, saying timidly, " Will that buy you a new vase, mamma?" What evil demon pottc**3~»ed me to take the coin, his sacredly cherished treasure, (a kind neighbor hid given him), and throw it from me, I know not. Harry picked it up with tears running, and sat down npon his stool with his hands ftdd.il ao meekly. -»Yeaently he said: " Hay I go play with Eddie Potter?" "I don'tcare where you go," aaid I, crossly, "aa long aa you keep out of my sight." Harry went to the clo-et where his voat and cap hung, put them on, and came and stood by my aide. " -lamma, will you please forgive me? Im so sorry!" and he put his lips up for a kiaa. Oh Ood forgive me! I pushed the little fellow away. He atood by the door a moment, looking pitifully at me; it ia twenty-five year* ago to-day aince he atood there, bat I can aee him with his.slue coat and red and gray worsted skating cap, and the little red mil tens, aa if it was but vest <-rd-.y. But I looked coldly at him, the door opened and aaat, the httle feet want alowly ; heard hitr^gooat. unfasten the gate. 1-ooking out of the window, I anw the little fellow lift hia face with a smile as he aaw me, vhich gave pl-j-ce to a pitiful qaiver of the lips, as.he aaw I U-ok uo notice of him. 1 watched the d.trling down the street with a strange un'detiii.'d tVflin;:, till the little coat and red mitten*, were no longer visible. Twice a>tmdden impulse moved me to call him back,-but I crushed it down. Oh! would to God I had. Well, I sewed all through the winter ufternoon. At four o'clock I put away my work and sat by tho window. Conscience began to reproach me for my conduct. "I don't care," said I, " my beautiful vase a rum." "What is the volae of all vases iu the world compared with your child? Have you not spoke crossly to that dear little Harry, who is always so cheerful and o1*«dient? And this is not the first time, either; and yon, calling yourself a Christian mother, too! Suppose Harry should suddenly be taken frotn you. Wouldn't your cruel ^vorda hnunt you forever?" I conld bear this no longer. I roae and picked np the stray litter about the room to give it a more tidy appearance. Then I wont to the window, peering anxiously through the gloom, but seeing nothing of my boy, my heart became terribly heavy; this suspense was un- b"arable. Hastily throwing a shawl over my head I ran into Sirs. Potter's. " Hive you seen Eddie?" was the question before I entered the room. "Have you seen Harry?" "Ho was over here at half-past two; ho and Eddie went over to Josie Gray's. I thiuk"— What sho thought I never knew, for at that moment the door flew open and Eddie rushed in breathless, screamiii^,' " Mother, mother! Harry Loring is drowned! We were sliding on the mill poud, and there was a hole in tho ice with snow on it, and Hairy didn't see it and—" . "Hush Eddie!" said his mother, looking at me fearfully, " here is Mrs. Loring!" There was Agreftt silence iu the room, broken oaly by the blithe, sweet voice o.f a canary, nnd the purr of a M iltcsecat. Presently Sirs. Totter came towards me and placed her baud ivtftly upon my shonlder, saying, " Ella, my poor child!" But I never moved, but sat gazing with wide open eyes upon an nwftil picture. A cold, gray afternoon, a pond, little boya playing upon it, ono little figure well known to mc, suddi-nly disappearing through tho treacherous ice, down, dear." And that was all. I soon ret*o vered. For a long time I could not bear Harry out of my sight. It seemed aa if I could not do half enough to atone for my conduct. The thought makes me shudder now—if it had been that Horry had n.vt-r come bock to me, and that tho lost words he heard from hia mother'- lips were so unkind. I bave had three children since, and not one of them has ever received a cross or hasty word from me. Oftentimes my patience is severely tried, but onu thought of that horrible death to which Harry came so near drives the demon away. Mothers, ocar patiently with these httle iunocent ones. Aro there not many whose eyes, reating npon thia sircple story, fill with bitter tears at the r.'i-,..ledum of the unkind words, and even blows, to littlo children laid away forever? Who would give all their worldly pos* sessions, yes, years of their lives, to recall those hasty words which made their child's lips quiver pitifully and tho clear eyea dim with fears? Ah! yoa cannot have them back. * They are gone, and your sin remains.—A"«u* -Beo!* fovd Standurd. , o. »■» m AWobdto WostTes.— Very few hv di *- know how to appreciate an easy, healthful dress.

Thorn was a mist,before my eyes, a ringing in my cars. I remember leaving the house with a blind feeling going where my H.iriy was. Then came a horrible sense as of earth breaking way under my feet, and I knew no more. A plonsant feeling of warmth, a languid sense prevoding my whole sya- tem. I opened my eyea and glanced around the room. A strange woman by*" the fire; at the foot of the bed, my husband with hands over hia eyes. I tried to think whore I was nnd what had hap- pened, but iu vain. Then my attention wus arrested by a little lignro in a red flannel night-dress ruddled up in a big chair—my Harry! Then it all flashed across my mind. I sat up straight in bed with a feint * Why!" " WhS, is it?" said I, feebly. "You must not talk; lie down. Oh darling!" and the strong man wept like a child. And the little figure came and jumped on my bed snd putting its arms around my neck, cried too. j And I, puzzled to kuow wbat it all nicant, cried also. The strange figure clime forward and took Harry away. Buying, " Be careful, Mr. Lnring, everything now del-tends npon quiet. "Tell me all, now," said I: "Imuat know; I had such a horrible feeling.

The Spaniards are very fond of a game called monte, which is played thus: Some person, who acta as b-tnker, lays down two cards token at hirard from the pack, say a knave and an eight, aud any number of persons may stake on either of these. The banker then turns op the pock aud takes tha cords one by one from the bottom, and the first card that appears similar to either of the two, too knave or the eight, causes the corresponding card- laid down to win and the other to lose. A young fellow iu Cadiz was acting as bauker, and had laid down a king and a ten; but before the staking waa completed he was seized with a violent fit of sneering, during -which he drop- ped his handkerchief, and in stooping to pick it np he allowed the bottom card, a king, to be seen. When he had recovered himself he found the stakes much Urger than before, and all placed on the king. He expressed some Bar- prise, and aakod for an explanation, hut nobody gave it; he proceeded with the game, when the first card proved to be a ten. He swept np the stakes, made a low bow, and retired; and, although when the players recovered from their shock, deadly vengeance was vowed again-t hioo, the story does not say that it waa ever carried iato execution. ...Old Polly Smith waa a terrible plain woman. She would have borne off the jack-knife from all competitors and given them the odds of fifty to Btart in the race. She was endk-asly complaining of her ills of various kinds. wits Mrs. Smith, to the no amttll ani*oy* artce of such Ustners aa ahe claimed to hold, as did the ancient mariner tka wedding guest, " by the spell of bar glittering eye;*' and no one was mora annoyed than old l>r. liolua, a cynical old fellow of hor neighborhood.
