See. the moonbeams sweetly breaking, O'er the ever restless sea. And the Waves to memory waking, Tell a story unto me. Tell a tale, ah! me, a sad one In their never ceasing flow, Tell a tale of love—a sad one, Of the years of long ago. Here when quiet stars were beaming, O'er the waters of the sea Walked a youth and maiden dreaming What their future was to be. Gently, and with perfume laden Came the wind from woodlands low, To that darkjeyed youth and maiden, In those years of long ago. Oh!. those blessed youthful visions, Love and truth, and hope and trust, Could they stand 'gainst Fate's decisions— Never crumble into dust; Could we keep them here forever, Could we bid them not to gd; Then the yearling heart would never Pray for years of long ago. . Where are now those vows then-spoken ? Where the pressure of the hand ? Hark! the wind is whispering, " broken," As it stirs the moonlit sand. Years of strife and toil and .sorrow, Mingled happiness and woe— Can we think of joy to-morrow As in yeaips of long ago? LOKO AGO—THE REAL, I am smoking a quiet cigar On the shore just in front x>f the sea, And a happier man by far ^ . Than e'er I expected to be. The moon is uncommonly bright, The tide is uncommonly low; Tlie tail of a comet's in sight, But no tale of love, that I know. I remember this very same spot, And reader I'll tell you the reason: Some long years ago, when the hot Weather drove people here for a season, I came a delighted young man, Just green from the lectures of college, And my thoughts (If I had any) ran " On everything else but on knowledge. ■r . >#-* A damsel was here in her ."teens," I loved her the' first time I "seen her?/ ; And though I was verdant as greens, • I fancy Miss Nancy was greener. And here on these very same sands, I swore By the moon and the breakers, I placed all my life In her hands, And therefore I thought I might take her's . 'lis fanny to look back and see How the moon and stars and the sight Of the salty old waves of the sea, Put a man in such terrible plight. Miss Nancy, she gave me the slip, And left me heartbroken to dye For another the down on my lip. For another fair maiden to sigh. And here once again by the ocean, I laugh as I see on the shore, ' 'Njtoi A couple of figures ih motion, . As I and Miss Nancy of yore. . I bet he is swearing to love her, And talking of "heart-strings" and "woe," Of " gushing sweet moonbeams above her," As I did in times " long ago." " MOBAL. , N " Where ignorance is bliss, &c, &c, &c." ?M$uUm\t. - ■ . <s 53' A MIRROR. In Which Many People May See Themselves Reflected. Albert, I wish you wouid let me have seventy-five cents." Kate Landman spoke very .carefully, for she knew that her husband had not much money to spare ; yet she spoke earnestly, and there was a world of entreaty in her look. " What do you want seventy-five cents for ?" asked Albert, not very pleasantly. - ". I want to get some braid for my new dress." " I thought you had the materials all on hand for that." So I thought I-had ; but Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Thompson both have a trimming of braid upon theirs-, and it looks very well. It is very fashionable, and it certainly adds much to the dress. "Plague take these women's fashions ! Your endless trimmings and thing-a-magigs cost me more than the dress is worth. It's nothing but shell out money when once a woman thinks of a new dress." " Surely, Albert, I don't have .many new dresses. I try to be as economical as I can." \ " It's funny kind of economy at all events. But if you must have it, I suppose you must." And Albert Landman took out his wallet, and counted out the seventy- five cents ; but he gave it grudgingly; arrd when he put the wallet back into his pocket he did it with emphasis which seemed to say that he wouldn't take it out for a week. • When Albert reached- the outer door on his way to his work, he found the weather so threatening that he concluded tp go back and get his umbrella, and upon re-entering the sitting- xoom he found his wife in tears. She tried to hide the fact that- she had been weeping, but she had been caught in the act, and she was asked what it meant. "Good Gracious I" cried the husband, " I should like to know if you are crying at what I said about your dress?" " I wasn't crying at what you said Albert," replied .Kate tremulously; " but you were so reluctant to grant me, the ljttle favor. I was thinking how. hard"! work—how I am tied to the house—how many little things I have to perplex me ; and then to think— "0, pshaw! What do you want to be so foolish for ? " ':& And away started Albert Landman at second time; but not tq;escape so easily. ' In the hall he was met by his daughter Lizzie, a bright-eyed, rosy cheeked girl, ten years of age. " O,' papa, give me fifteen cents." "What?" " 0, I want fifteen cents. Do please give it to me." " What in the world do you want of it 1 Are they changing ..school books again ? " " No—I want to buy a hoop. Ellen .Smith has got one, and so has Mary Buck and Sarah Allen. Mr. Grant has got some real pretty ones to sell. Mayn't I have'one ? " " Nonsense ! If you want a hoop go and get it from an old barrel. I can't afford to be buying hoops for you to trundle about the streets" " Please, pajfe.." " No, I tell you! " The bright blue eyes were filled with teaf s, and as the child's sobbing broke upon his ear Albert LandmaK.-burried from the house with some very impatient words -upon his lips. This was.in the morning. At noon, when he came home to his dinner, there, was a cloud over .the household, fijs wife was sober, and he was sober, and even little Lizzie,' usually so gay and blithesome, was sad and silent. But these things could not last long, in this household; for the husband and wife'loved each other devotedly, and were really at heart kind and forbearing. When Albert came to his suppei Kate greeted him with a kiss, and in a moment the sunshine came back ; and had the lesson ended there the husband might have fancied that he had done nothing wrong—that the cloud had been but the exhalation of a domestic ferment for which none was particularly responsible; though he might not have banished ' the conviction that women's fashions were a nuisance and a humbug, as a frightful draft upon husbands' pockets. ' After tea Albert did a few chores about the house, and he lighted a cigar and walked out. He had- gone but a "short distance when he met Lizzie. In her right hand she dragged an old hoop which had been taken from a dilapidated flour barrel, while with her left she was rubbing her red swollen eyes. She Was in deep grief, for she was'Sobbing painfully. He stopped his child and asked her what was the matter. She answered, as well as her sobs would let her, that the other girls had laughed at her, and made fun of her old hoop. They all had pretty hoops, while her's was ugly and homely. " Never mind," said Albert, patting the little one upon the head-^for the child's grief touched him—" perhaps We'll have a new hoop sometime:" ." Mayn't I have one now? Mr. Grant has got one left—O! such a pretty one ! " The sobbing had ceased as the'child caught her father's hand eagerly, " Not now, Lizzie—not now; I'll think of if." Sobbing again the ohild moved on towards home, dragging the old hoop after her. At one of the Btores Albert Landman met some of his friends. " Halloo, Albert, what's up 1" § Nothing in particular." " What do yon say to. have a game of billiards?" " Good ! I am in for that." ^And away went Albert to the billiard, hall, where he had a glorious time with . his friends. He '. liked billiards. It was a healthy, pretty game; and the keeper of the hall allowed no rough scruff upon his premises. They -had played four games. Albert had won two and his opponent had won two. "That's two and two," cried'Tom Duff. "What do you say tosaddling 'em off?" " All right—go in," replied Albert, full of animation. So they-played the fifth game,-and he who lost was to pay for the five games. It was an exciting contest: both made capital runs ; but in the end Albert was just beaten by three points, and, with a light laugh, he went up to settle tho bilL* Five games—twenty cents a game—-just one dollar. Not much for such sport, and he paid out the money with a good grace, never once seeming to feel that he couldn't afford it. T''• " Have a cigar ? " said Tom. "Yes." They lighted their cigars and then they sauntered down the hail to watch other players. By and by Albert found' himself seated over against a table at which some of his friends were playing, and close by him were two gentlemen— both strangers .to- him—one of whom •was explaining to'the other the mysteries of the game. " It is a healthy pastime," said he who had been making the explanation ; " and certainly it is one which has no evil tendency. Albert heard the remark quite.plain- ly and he had the curiosity to heex what the other would say. " I cannot, of course, assert' that any game which is free from the attendant curse of gaming, is of itself, an evil," remarked the second gentleman. "Such things are only evils in so far as' they excite and stimulate men beyond the bounds of healthful recreation." " That result can hardly follow such a game, said the first speaker." But the other shook his head. " You are wrong there. The result can follow in two ways. First, it can lead men" assay from their business; and second, it can lead men to spend money who have no money to spare. You will understand me. I wouldn't cry down the game of billiards; for if I understood it I would certainly try you a game now i but when I visit a place of this kind I am led to reflect- upon the strange and prominent weakness of -human nature as developed in our sex. ■For instance observe that young man who is just now settling his bill at the desk. He looks like a mechanic ; and I should say from his manner, and from the fact that he feels it his duty to go home at this hour, that he is kind hearted and generous, and I should judge that he - means to do about as neto fig.ht- as he oan. He has been beaten, and he pays one dollar and forty cents for the recreation of some two hours duration. If you observe, you will see that he pays it freely, and pockets the loss with a smile. Happy faculty I But how do you suppose it is in .tfcatjjoung man's.home? Suppose his wi£» had come to him that morning and asked him for a dollar to spend for some trifling thing—some household ornament, or some bit of jewelry for the adornment of her person—and suppose his little child had put in a plea for forty cents to buy paper dolls and picture books with, what would have been the result.? - What do you think he would have answered ? Of fifty men jlfet like him would not five and forty hare declared that they had no money to spare for such purposes ? And moreover, they would have said so, feeling that they were telling the truth: Am I not fight ? " Upon my soul," responded the man who understood billiards, " you speak to the point, I know the young man who has just' paid his bill, and you have not misjudged him in a single particular. And what is more, I happen to have a fact at hand to illustrate your charge. We have a club for an excellent literary paper in our village and last year the young man was one of our subscribers. This year he was obliged to discontine it. His wife was very anxious to take it. The club rate was one dollar and fifty oents a year," " Aye—and so it goes," said the other gentleman. " While that man's wife; may at this very moment be wishing that she had her paper to. read, he is paying almost its full price for a year— for what? Almost for nothing. And yet see how smilingly he does it. Ah ! those poor sympathizing wives I How many clouds darken upon, them from the brows of their husbands when they ask for a trifling sum of money, and how grudgingly the mite is handed" out when it is given. What perfect floods of joy might that dollar-and forty cents have poured upon the children of the unsuccessful billiard player. Ah ! it is well for such wives ahd children that they do not know' whore all their husband's money goes!" The game was finished at the nearest table, the two- gentlemen moved on, and Albert Landman arose from his seat and left the hall. 'Never before had he had just such thoughts as now possessed hkn. He had never dwelt upon the same grouping of ideas. That very morning his own faithful, true, loving wife had been sad and heart-sick because he had harshly and unkindly met her. request -for a small sum of money. And his sweet little Lizzie had crept away to her home almost brokenhearted for the want of a simple toy such as her mates possessed. And yef the sum of both their wants amounted not. to so much as he had payed away that evening for billiard playing, Albert Landman wanted to be an honest husband and -father, and the lesson was not lost upon him. On his; way home he stopped at Mr. Grant's and purchased the best and prettiest, hoop to be found, with a. driving stick: painted red, White and blue, and in the morning when he heard his child's delight, and had received her grateful,, happy kiss, the question came to his mind—^ybich was the happiest result— this or the five games at billiards ? The hoop bad cost thirty cents. He-qpuld play two games less at billiards, and be the absolute gainer of ten cents-by the operation. A few mornings after this, as Albert arose from the breakfast table, he detected ah uneasy, wistful look upon his wife's face. "Kate, what is it?" " Albert, if you could spare me half a dollar this morning." "Certainly, my love. Anything fn reason to make you happy." And out came the wallet and the money was handed over with a warm, genial smile.' What I -Tears at that ? Was-it possible that she had been so little used to such scenes on his part, that so simple an act of loving kindness thus affected her? How many games of billiards would oe required to give such satisfaction as Albert Landman carried With him that morning to his shop ? Avery simple story, is it not ? But how many may gain lasting profit by giving heed to the lesson 1 I.TING IN BED. It is often a question among people who are unacquainted with tha anato. my and physiologyNof men, whether lying with the head exalted or level with the body, is the most wholesome. Mpst, consulting their own ease on this point, argue in favor of that which they prefer. Now, although' many delight in bolstering up their heads at night, and sleep soundly without injury, yet we declare it to be a dangerous habit. The vessels in which the blood passes from the heart to the head are always lessened in their cavities when the head is resting in bed higher than the> body; therefore, in all diseases attended with fever, the head should be pretty nearly on a level with the body; .and people ought to accustom themselves to sleep thus, and avoid danger..—Med, Journal. The Moral Influence ot Different 'Kinds ot Food. Man is a sort of tree which we are too apt to judge of-by the bark. At a seance of the Freneh Academy of Science,'held on the 2d of April, was read, a curious paper upon • the moral influence of different kinds of food. The writer relates in detail a double series of experiments that he. performed -upon himself with the two capital articles, coffee and wine. He prepared himself for each series by a fast of forty hours, during which he ate nothing but a few globules of gum, in order that the stomach might be entirely empty at the moment of commencing. Then he ate nothing but coffee and bread, or wine and bread, for several days, and carefully noted his mental sensations. I quote his own words: " If I swallowed a certain quantity of strong Coffee slowly I felt a singular change take place in my nature. I seemed almost' instantaneously transformed into another man ; all feeling extinguished itself in my breast and at the same moment my intellect developed an unaocastomed activity; it seemed as if all my faculties had- transformed themselves into intelligence. I ceased to. be communicative and kindly ; I became cold, cross and selfish'; in a word,- my whole -character assumed exactly the reverse of what it had hitherto been. My intellect labored with-, out the'slightest fatigue, and almost in spite of myself Upon any .given subject it penetrated profoundly and drew almost infinite consequences. If I wrote, my style was correct and bold. If I remained a long time in this condition, my inte.itect ceased its' activity of production, but» like my body, it re-, mained constantly agitated. I could not sleep, or, at least, could never completely lose my consciousness-. In a word, I was entirely reduced to motion and intelligence. It is Worthy of note that my pulse was both slow &n<l feeble throughout the experiment. If now I drank some wine everything changed, calm returned, followed by generous sentiments. I felt myself become kindly and sympathetic. I ceased, by magic, io be cross and egotistical. If the experiment was made from the beginning with wine and bread, instead of coffee and bread, these -phenomena were exaggerated; the mind was dulled to such a point as to be embarassed by the slightest effort; the character became extraordinarily sensitive. I dreaded to offend any one by the slightest thing; whereas under the influence of coffee, the feelings or opinions of the world -were completely indifferent to me. In the meantime, this vinous sensibility is not necessarily benevolent. If the person happens-to fall under the influence of a malevolent feeling, that is equally intensified. Finally, I became, heavy, sleepy, inclined for repose-.; the intellect ceased to act; sensibility alone remained." The author of the memoir observes, in conclusion, that coffee and wine may be taken as the types of two great classes of food, of which one acts on the intellect and nerves of motion, the other, on the sensibility and nerves of sensation1 ; that a majority of articles used as food occupy a middle place between two extremes. TUB PRINTER. The following beautiful tribute to the followers of the "stick and rale" is from the pen of B. F. Taylor, of the Chicago. Evening Journal; The printer -is the adjutant of thought; and this explains the mystery of the wonderful word that can kindle a hope as no song can ; that can warm a heart as no hope can; that word^'we" with hand-in-hand warmth in it—for the author and the printers are engineers together. Engineers, indeed ! " When the little Corsican bombarded Cadiz at the distance of five miles, it was deemed the very triumph of engineering. But what is that range to this, whereby they bombard the ages yet to be I There at the "case" he stands and marshals into line the forces armed for truth, clothed in immortality and English. And what can be. nobler than that equipment of a thought in sterling Saxon—Saxon with a spear- or shield therein, and that commissioning it when we are dead, to move grandly on to "the latest syllable of recorded time," This is to win a victory from death, for this has no dying in it. • The printer is called a laborer, and the office he performs is toil. Oh, it is not work but a sublime life he is performing, when he thus sights the engine that is to fling a worded truth in grander curve than missile e'er before described; fling it. into the bosom of an age unborn. He throws off his coat indeed; we but wonder the rather, that he does, not put his shoes from off hit feet,- for the place where he stands is holy -ground, A little song was uttered somewhere long ago; it wandered through the twilight feebler than a star; it died upon the ear. But the printer takes it up where it was lying there in the silence like a wounded bird, and then sends it forth from the ark, that had preserved it, and it flies on into the future with the olive-branch of peace, and around the world with melody, like the dawn ing of a spring morning. HOW TO TEE,Ii A GOODITEACHEK, A gentleman from Swampville was telling how many different occupations he had attempted. Among others he had tried school teaching. " How long did you teach ?"" asked a bystander. "Wal, I didn't teach long; that is I only went to tea^oh." "Did you hire out ?" "Wal, I didn't hire out; I only went td hire out>" "Why did you give up?" "Wal, I guv up for some reason or nuther. You see, I traveled into a deestrick and inquired for the trustees. Somebody said Mr.. Snickles was the man I wanted to see^ So I found Mr^ Snickles—named my object, introduced myself-—and asked him what he thought about lettin' me try my luck with the big boys and unruly gals in the deestrick He wanted to know if I really- considered myself capable, and I told him I wouldn't mind his asking me a few easy, questions in arithmetic jogra- phy, or showing my hand-Writing. He said no, never mind; he could tell a good teacher by his gait." "Let me see you walk off a little ways," says he, "and I can tell yoU jis'i well as I'd heard you examined." "He sot in the door as. he spoke, and I thought he looked a little skittish; but I was considerable frustrated, and walked on as smart as I knowed how. He said he'd tell me when to stop, so I kep' on till I. thought I'd gone far enough—.then s'pected s'thing was.to pay, and looked round. Wal, the door was shetj and Snickles was gone! " "Did'nt you go back." . "Wal'no—I didn't go back." "Did you apply for another school?" "WaL no—I-didnH apply for another school," said the gentleman from Swampville. "I rather judge my ap^ pearance was against me."-—N. Y Teach A MARK TWAIN TARN: Mark Twain tells the following story of a fellow passenger, who. being ban; tered about his timidity, said he had never been scared since he loaded ah old Queene Anne Musket for his father' once, whereupon he related the follow; ing: You see the old man was trying t<3 learn me to shoot black birds and beasts that tore np theyoung corn, and such things, so that I could be of some* use about the form, because I -wasn't big enough to do much. My gun was a little single barreled shot gun, and the old man carried ah old Queen Anne musket, that weighed a. ton, and made a report like a thunder-clap, and kicked like a mule. The .old man wanted me to shoot the old musket sometimes, but I was afraid. One day, though, I got her down, and so I took her to the hired man and asked him how to load her; "Hiram said: "Do you see them marks on the stock—an X and V on the Queen's crown ? Well that means ten balls and five slugs—thats her load." "But how much powder?" "Oh/' he says, "it dont matter; put iri three or four handsfull." So I loaded her up that way, and it was an awful charge—I had sense enough to sec that and started out.— I levelled her on a good many blackbirds, but every time I went to pull the trigger I shut my eyes and winked; I was afraid of her kick. Towards sundown I fetched up at the house, and there was the old man resting on the porch. "Beenout hunting, hate ye? " • ' "Yes sir," says I. " What did you kill ? " "Didn't kiH anything, sir—didn't shoot her off—I was afraid she'd kick. (I knew blamed well she would.) "Gimmus that gun I" the old man says, mad as sin. ' He took aim at a sapling on the other side of the road, and I began to drop out of danger. And in the next minute I heard an earthquake, and saw the Queen Anrie whirling end over end in the air, and the old man spin-" hing arround on his heel, with one leg Up and both hands on his jaw, and the bark flying from, the tree. The old- man's shoulder was set back two inches and his jaw turned black and blue, and he had to lay up for three days. Cholera or nothing else can ever scare me the way I was scared that time; •. AIR AND WATER. Set-a pitcher of water in a room, and in a few. hours it will have absorbed nearly all the respired and perspired gasses in the room, the air of which will have become purer, butf the water utterly filthy.- The colder the water the greater the capacity to contain these gases. At ordinary temperatures/ a gallon of water will contain a pint of carbonic acid gas, and several pints of ammonia. .The capacity is nearly double by reducing the water to the temperature of ice. Hence, water kept in the room always, is always unfit for use. For the same reason, the wa^ ter in a p'ump stock should always be pumped-out in the morning before any is used. Impure Water is more injurious than impure air. This shows the economy as well as the convenience of modern ice pitchers, a splendid invention which as it seems is more than ornament and . sho-jir;. ay, it is really and' absolutely a necessity. Let these hints be heeded by our health-loving aed life-preserving readers. LIFE. Life is a book, in which we every day read a chapter. We ought to note - down every instructing ineideijtf .that passes. A crowd of useful thoughts: j cannot but flow from self-converse. ' Hold every day a solitary conversation- with yourself. This is the way iri=.- which to attain the highest relish .off existence ; and if I may so say to ca§jr anchor in the river of life. ■ QbBjhji HBJB ■ ■ ■9HH1 U- m ■ i 1 B
