SHALL "WE KNOW EACH OTHER THERE T When we hear the music ringing Through the bright celestial dome. When sweet angel Voices, singing, Gladly bid us welcome home To the land of ancient story, Where the spirit knows no care, In the land ofllght and glory. Shall'we know each other'there? When the holy angels meet us As we go to join their band, Shall we know the friends who greet us, In the glorious spirit-land; Should we see the dark eyes shining On us as In the days of yore ? Shall we feel their dear arms twining Fondly round us as before? O ! ye. weary ones and lost ones, Droop not, faint not by the way; Ye shall loin the loved and true ones In the land of perfect day. . Harp-strings, touched by angle fingers, Murmur in my raptured ear; Evermore their sweet tone lingers, We shall know each other there. A HARVEST SCENE. Fair and fresh the winds are blowing, Brightly shines the sun to-day Over the meadow, hill and woodland— On the newly gathered hay. White and purple, green and golden, Fleck the fields afar and near;' While the harvest hands are singing, " We'll have well filled barns this year." Hear the winding brook that ripples Thro' the meadow, copse and glen, How it murmurs as if answering Back the joyful sounds of men. Now in sunshine, now in shadow, Winding out and winding in, Like a mirror It refiecteth, All day long the harvest scene. Length'ning shadows now from woodlands Over brook and meadow creep,- While behind his gorgeous curtains, Sinks the harvest sun to sleep. Giving promise to the reapers, After labor, rest shall come—' Tired hands be calmly folded, 'Midst the sacred scenes of home. Patiently the farmer waited— Worked and waited like a man, : Never doubtl.ng4.hat the Master Well would end what he began. Now he hath the promised blessing, Fruit for all Ills honest toil; Never lord was half so happy As the tiller of the soil. pi^d-tof. PARLIAMENTARY CEREMONIES. Tlie Inner Life of the House of Com- *mons. From the New Jersey Magazine. OPENING THE SESSION. It is half-past three o'clock; and as> the House, when fairly at work, in the middle'of the session, meets precisely: at four, it is necessary, in order to witness the entrance of Mr. Speaker, and other formalities which are part of the' evening's proceedings of this great national council, that we take our stand in outre or " stranger's lobby," where, there are already assembled the numerous parliamentary agents, clerks, and other functionaries interested in the " private business " of the House ; some to canvass members for their support of private bills—others .to influence their opposition to such measures. Precisely at ten minutes of four a voice is heard from the corridor leading to the Speaker's room, announcing the approach of " Mr. Speaker." The inspector of police, who stands where the corridor enters the lobby, cries out, " Hats, off, strangers," and every man is immediately uncovered. The doors of the House are then thrown Open, and- preceded by a, messenger of the House in full dress, with his silver gilt badge suspended from hi3 neck, and the Sergeant-at-arms, im: court costume, with his massive mace on his shoulder, " Mr. Speaker," in his robes, and accompanied by his chaplain, is seen approaching, his sweeping train being borne by another messenger in full court livery. On the Speaker's approach to the door, the principal doorkeeper proceeds to ^hg-bar and calls out, " Mr. Speaker," whereupon the members present at once fall into their respective places, and standing uncovered, reverently bow as that functionary passes. PRATERS. On his enhance into the House "Mr. Speaker" does not at once take the chair, but .stands at the table while the chaplain reads the prayers. When prayers commence the doors of the House are closed, and the door-keeper announces that "Mr. Speaker is at prayers," and at the same time rings .a bell) or rather sets going a machine which causes a simultaneous ringing of bells in all parts of the House where members are likely to be. In about seven minutes "prayers are over," which fact is formally announced by the doorkeeper, and the bells are again set in motion. The doors of the House are then opened, and as soon as " Mr. Speaker " has ascertained that the requisite "forty" members are in the House, he takes the chair. The doorkeeper then calls out, " Mr. Speaker is in the chair," and the order of business for the night begins. It sometimes happens that when the hand of the clock points to four there are not forty members present. In this case the Speaker at once adjourns the House. This never, however, occurs on Government nights, or when the Government wants to " make a House," for on these nights the "whips" always take care to secure the attendance of the requisite number. NO QUORUM. The circumstances under which fail ures to " make a House" occur are generally these : It is a public night, which means that motions of private members takes precedence—-there is nothing important on the paper ; on the contrary, there are several notices .of motions but there be members bf no standing in the House, which it is known will lead to nothing but hours df"dr,eary,t&lk. Of course, as the Government is not interested, its agents will not " make a house," and when those who have .received notices have not sufficient influence to secure the attendance of forty members—and the members generally are not disposed to waste a night watching proceedings which they care nothing about, and they know will be perfectly fruitless—j it often happens that out of the six hundred and fifty-eight members, it is [impossible to get forty to attend. In- jdeed, sometime we have known ah active canvass to keep members away; and it is no uncommon thing to see a hundred members in the lobby when it is found impossible to get thirty in ths House. The failure to make a House is often a severe disappointment and mortification to those members who have motions set down. Fancy a man spending weeks in pouring oyer blue- books, extracting their contents, 'elaborating his speech, and then hurrying down to the House on the great important day, full of his subject, he'finds the doors shut, and learns from the solitary policeman who paces the lobby that there is " no House." The " count out" is another favorite and not uncommon mode of getting rid of a dreary speaker and a disagreeable subject. It generally takes place between the hours of seven and eight, and is managed in this wise : The time we will suppose, is half past seven. The honorable member for has been up for an hour, and the wearisome tide of talk shows no signs of exhaustion. Most of the members- have gone to dinner at their respective clubs, or at the dining room of the House; and now there are not more than Sttrty.five or fifty members present. There is a general disposition to get rid of the speaker and his motion. The Govern- ( ment will be saved the trouble of reply, which, by the way, is very convenient. The young members want, perhaps, to go to the Opera—the old members will be glad of a night's irest and see that a: holiday may be i secured, without any injury to the State. - The •first symptoms of a "count" is the oongregation of a dozen or twenty members in the inner lobby, anxiously peering through the glass doors. Some knowing hand slides in and sliding up to different members in the House, tells them what is afoot, and-then glides out again. Presently others are seen quietly leaving, one by one, with-1 out any apparent concern. Some member then goes to the back of the Speak: er's chair and counts the members present. There are just forty;with " Mr. Speaker." There are too many for the count to be attempted, as others may drop in. Another leaves, and then another, and so on, until there are only thirty-two or thirty-three left. The member behind . the chair then comes forward and calls " Mr. Speak- ei 's" attention to the fact that there are -not. forty members present. The Orator .drops down: in the middle of his harangue ; the clerk of the table turns a three minute sand glass; the doorkeeper rings the bell, and when the sand in the glass is run out " Mr. Speaker" proceeds to count the members, and then, if forty be notgreSeht,- he declares the house adjourned. " WHO GOES HOME ? " The cry of the doorkeeper, ".Who goes home?" which he always Shouts out when the House rises, is said tp mean, " Who goes home with the Speaker to protect him ? " and has-descended down from those troublous timeB when it was not safe for " Mr, Speaker" to go home alone. There is another curious ceremony which is occasionally seen at the House, and, as it once led to a laughable scene, it is worthy of notice. When her Majesty gives her assent to bills, either in person or by commission, " Mr. SpeaK- er" is summoned to the House of Peers. The summoning officer is the " Usher of the BlacK Rod," who, in full court dress, marches in grand state, with a blacx rod on his shoulder, to the door of the House of Commons. On his approach the door is locKed by the Sergeant-at-Arms, and to gain admittance the usher has to KnocK three time, which he does .with grave solemnity. The door is then thrown open; the doorKeeper walKs to the bar and shouts, " BlacK Rod," and the usher, accompanied by the sergeant with the mace on his shoulder, marches up to the table of the House, both bowing as they advance. At the table the usher holds his rod upright and delivers his summons, and then, still accompanied by the Sergeant-at-Arms, bacKS out of the House, stopping at every three or four steps to bow. Having arrived at the door he turns round, and; followed, by "Mr. SpeaKer," proceeds to the House of Peers. There " Mr. SpeaKer" hears the royal assent given, and then, in due state, marches bacic to the House of Commons. When the . BlacK Rod leaves the House of Commons the doorKeeper calls out, ■" MaKe way for BlacK Rod;" and then, on the approach of the SpeaKer, " MaKe way for Mr. SpeaKer.'<"■ On the night alluded to, when "BlacK Rod" arrived, Lord Palmerston was answering Mr. Disraeli, and was speaKingin a more impassioned manner than usual. The House was crowded in every part. All was silent as the grave, excepting the noble lord, who had just said, "Is this the party—?" when, before the sentence could be finished, the dborKeeper.. started forward and shouted out, " BlacK Rod." This noble lord drooped as if he had been shot, and the laughter long and loud, now sinKing afld now rising again in a fresh peal, rang through the HouSe. At first the noble lord seemed completely stunned, but he soon recovered and joined ' in the laughter as heartily as any one, and even "Mr. SpeaKer" could hardly draw down his risible muscles'to a due tension, as the BlacK Rod marched up the House. HOW TO LIKE ONE'S OWN HOME. From the Boston Journal, Not long since a gentleman who owns a country residence became dissatisfied and concluded that it was not the place that suited him at all. He talked with his wife, and she gradually arrived at the conclusion that the lawn was not what it,!should De, that the trees were not sufficiently umbrageous, and that various details were wanting to make the place acceptable. The couple.having reached this Unhappy frame of mind, became daily more dissatisfied, and it was finally concluded that the estate should be offered, at •private sale. After some delay the owner acci, dentally met Mr. Samuel A. Walker, the well known' auctioneer, and informed him of his intention, stipulating, however, that the advertisement should give a full description of the place. "You know," he continued, "that I' don't want Tom, Dick and Harry running down to inspect the place from niere curiosity, and as my Wife Says she will not consent to a public auction, I propose to sell it at private sale." "I understand," said Mr. Walker. "I will announce it in such a way that, without naming' the locality, it will attract the attention of any one in want of such a country seat, and then they can apply at my office," "That is exactly what I want," replied the gentleman, "and you bad- better drop down and dine with me and look it over, go that you can give it a good description." "No need of that;" replied the auctioneer, "for you forget I sold it toyou, and I described it then, and I never forget a place I have once seen; of course I shall allude to its present condition." "Certainly," replied the gentleman, "and I leave it entirely in your hands, though there is. no immediate hurry, for I cannot give possession at present." In the course of a few days the gentleman took up a newspaper and -read a description of a place which Mr. Walker had advertised. It was in the peculiar style of the'auctioneer. After perusing it carefully, and making note of the "grassy slope," the "splendid vistas," and the "conveniences which grace the country residence of a gentleman of wealth ahd refinement," he read it aloud to his wife. "That is just the place we want;" she said. "My idea, to a dot," added the husband, "of what a place should be. I will call in at Mr. Walker's and inquire-; about it this very day. Mr. Walker received his visitor/and, anticipating some congratulatory remarks, asked him to take a seat. "Mr. Walker," said the gentleman, you have advertised in to-day's paper just the place I want." "Just the platfe you want to Sell," added M5. W. "No, sir, the \rcry place I want to purchase," replied the gentleman. "Which one do you mean?" inquired Mr. W., handing him a paper. "Why this one, to be sure; don't you suppose I read it?" The auctioneer adjusted his spectacles and looked broad at hi8 latest literary production. His spectacles fell from their place to the tip of his nose, and peering at his visitor, he burst into a laugh, exclaiming, "Why, my dear man, that's your place." "My place !" reiterated the astounded ownerj "my place; let's see, Jgrassy slopes,' 'beautiful vistas,' 'conveniences of a gentleman of wealth,' etc. "Why, yes, haven't you a charming view of the ocean? don't you look from your dining room window upon the most beautiful lawn you ever saw?" querried Mr. W. "Well, so I do," added the surprised individual, and after a moment's hesitation, he said: "Just make out your bill for advertising and expenses, for, by George, I wouldn't sell the place for three times what I gave for it." When Marshal Bazaine left the City of Mexico with the French army, his nephew, Lieut. Adolphe Basaine, "was about to be»married to a beautiful Mexican signbrita. In the hurry of their departure, however, it was not found convenient to oelebrate the nuptials.— It was, therefore, arranged that the wedding should take place there.— Meanwhile the Liberals closed in upon the retiring French troops ?and occupied the whole country, stopping the mails and travel. This was a sad state of things, but nothing is impossible to a true lover. Armed with a passport, which stated the object of his retrograde journey, the young Lieutenant started out alone for the City of Mexico, passed through the Liberal army and numerous bands of banditti, which chivalrously openeo right and left to letj him pass, and bore off his bride safely to France. About the age of thirty-six, the lean man generally becomes fatter, and the fat man leaner. AST INCIDENT IN THE CARS. On the whole, pleasant traits and incidents are not common' on the cars, I think. This opinion I expressed to my friend Sumers the other day. ''-Th reply to\fflj" remarks he related a little adventure, which, as it is apropos, and, moreover, involves a little love and sentiment, I give it without apology, and In his own-words. It appears that in the most unlikely places love and sentiment may be discovered. " I was escorting home the lovely Charlotte D-——, to whom I was at the time quite devoted; Charlotte could scarcely find room to-spread her crinoline and arrange her voluminous flounces. I stood up near her, there being no vacant seat. After a few minutes, came in a poor woman,: who. deposited, a basket of clothes on the platform, ahd held in her arms a small child, while a little girl hung to her dress. She looked tired and weury, but there was no vacant seat; to be sure Charlotte might have condensed her flounces, but she did not. Beside her, however, sat a very lovely ahd elegant young woman, who seemed trying, by moving down closer to others, to make space enough fpr the stranger .between "herself and Miss D—■—-. At last she succeeded, and with the'sweetest blush I ever saw she invited the poor female to be seated. Charlotte. D—^— drew "her drapery around her and blushed, too, but it. was j not a pretty blush at all, and she looked annoyed at the proximity of the newcomer, who was, however, clean and decently,, though thinly clad. The unknown lady, drew the little girl upon her lap, and wrapped her velvet mantle around the small, half clad form, and put her muff over the half frozen little hands. ,£k* So great was the crowd that I alone seemed to observe. The child shivered—the keen Wind from the door blew-- upon the unprotected neck. I saw the young lady quietly draw from under her shawl a little crimson woolen shawl, which she softly put on tne shoulders of the little one, the mother looking on with confused wonder. After a short time she arose to leave the cars', and woUld have removed.it but the -unknown gently whispered, "No, keep it for her." 'The Woman answered not, the conductor; hurried her out, but her eyes swam with tears. I noticed her as she decended to a basement, and I hastily remarked the house. Soon after my unknown also arose to depart. I was in despair, for I wanted to follow and discover her residence", but could not leave Miss D . How glad, then, I was to.see her bowing, as she passed out, to a mutual acquaintance who stood in the doorway'. From'him, ere many minutes, I had learned her name and address. To shorten the story as much as possible, that lady is now my wife. In the small incident which introduced her to me she showed her real character. A few days after our marriage I showed her the blessed crimson shawl, which I had rede*emed from its owner, and shall always keep as 'a memento. There are sometimes pleasant things to be found in unexpected places; certainly I may have said to have picked out my wife in the cars." THE ETERNAL, WORLD. Cases for Accident Insurance Co's. The "BreaknecK Accident Insurance Company" wrote to the "Fat Contributor" not long since to work up a column' or so of inducements for people to take out policies. This is the Way he did it: . Everybody should get insured against accidents. No matter if you belong to one of the "best families," accidents will-happen to them. Get a policy. The old proverb says, "Honesty is the best policy," but that was before accident insurance compa nles started; Now the-best policy is a policy in the "Breakneck." . The other day a man in Chicago fell out of a fourth story. He had no insurance and consequently was killed. Another man on the same day fell out -^■with his wife. He was insured in the "Breakneck" and is now ready to fall out again. A lady driving a spirited horse in St. Louis, was run away with. Being insured against accidents,* wasn't alarmed a bit, stopped the horse, and came back. Her policy having run out, she neglected to renew it. Shortly afterward she was runaway with again. Her husband's partner ran away with her this time, and she hasn't come back yet- Don't wait to renew your policy, particularly if its in the "Breakneck." Near Paris, Kentucky, a man, while engaged in running a circular saw, had his arms taken oft'. They consisted of eavalry sabre, and a double-barrelled shot gun. The man who carried them off had an accident insurance and he hasn't been, caught yet; «£; In Utica, New York, a man accident- ly got married. Being, insured in the Breakneck he will receive $15 a week until he recovers. Near Portland, Maine, a poor man fell from a loft and broke his neck. He received his insurance, $3,000, from the Breakneck, with which he was enabled to set himself Up in business and is how doing well; . A boiler exploded at Memphis, blowing up the engineer into the air quite out ofsight. He will receive $15 a day until he comes down again. A hog drover in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky, was very much hurt by a fall in pork. No insurance. ; .1 W Cato, the elder, said, " That wise men learned more from fools than fools from wise men;" No fragment of any arrny ever survived so many battle* as tHe Bible: no. citadel ever withstood so many .sieges; no rock was ever battered by so many storms. And yet it stands. It lias seen the rise and downfall Of Daniel's four empires. Assyria bequeaths a few mutilated figures to the riches of our national museum. Media and Persia like Babylon, Which they conquered, have been weighed in the balance, and long ago found wanting. Greece fain' ly survives in its historic fame : '"T living Greece no more;*' and the irof Rome of the Cesser? is.lield in precar' our occupation by a feeble hand. An yet-the book that foretells all this stili survives. While Nations, Kings, Philosophers, Systems, Institutions, hav<- died away, the Bible engage? now men';i deepest'thoughts, is exaniihed by "thd keenest intelects, stands revered before the highest tribunals, 'is more devoutly loved and more vehemently assailed, more defended' and more de- nied, more -industriously translated and freely given to.theworld,.morehonored and more abused than any other book the world ever saw. ' It survives all changes, itself un- . changed; it move's all minds,., yet. js moved by none; it sees all things de^, cay, itself incorruptible; it sees myriads, of other books engulfed in "the stream of time, yet is borne along triumphantly on the wave; and Will be • borne along, .till the mystic angel shall plan' his foot upon the sea, and swear by bin Who liveth forever and ever that tim shall be no longer. "For all flesh is a* grass, and. all the glory of man as th flower of grass, r The grass witheretb and the flower thereof falleth away;, but the Word of the Lord endure th forever.' '-^- Christian Observer. Mr; Smithson (an improvement on the celebrated name of Smith,) wished to taKe Miss Brownly (another improve- ' ment) to the opera. He had been on terms of intimacy with the family for about .five years, but "never sppKe ,of love;" on the contrary, he had frequently declared his intention of leading a bachelor's life. Once he put his his hand to the bell-handle and was admitted, ,.., - "Oh! James," exclaimed Miss Jane', "where haveyau been so long?" This tooK Smithspn a little by sur-' prise, for he.had spent the preceding evening With the family. Before he could answer, however, Jane's, brothers and sisters, (eight or ten ih number.). had gathered about him'. Summoning all his courage he said: . "I have come to asK you— " "Not here, James; not—now—oh I" "That is'," stammered Smi'thsOn "if yo'd'jje hot,engaged " """.' "Oh! oh! water—quicK!" . "What's that?" enquired her father; "who says engaged?" "I did not mean " said Smithson; in confusion. "Of course not," continued Mr. Brownly, "you've always been pur fa- voritel" Then advancing and "grasping poor Smithson by the hand, he said:— ',Take her—she's a good girl, and loves you to distraction'. May you ever be as nappy as the day is long!"-.- 3 And thereupon father . and mother and all the children .crowded around 'Smithson. and wished him joy,, and company coming in at that moment, the 'a'ffair'Vwas.; told to them as a profound secret. So Smithson- got a wife without poppi ng the question, and almost before he was aware of it himself. But we cannot help thinking ho- was hurried into matrimony. COLOR IN DRS3S. A good natural figure, and taste ih the -shape of dress, may be wholly spoilt by inappropriate or ill-harmonized colors". Remember that white increases the apparent size of the wearer", while black diminishes it. Remember, also, that stripes add to height; while cross-bars lessen it. Large ohecks are invariably in bad taste, unless a person's figure is so bad that it is sought to be concealed. Never wear a dress of many colors; and, when you hav.e.more than one, take care that they are-what is called complimentary. Thus green and red are complimentary. : They harmonize well;" so do yellow and purple,, orange and blue. Blue and. green are utterly inadmissable together.—- Thus, too, theS'e strong colors ought to be chosen with resp86t to -the color of the complexion. Green gives a rosi- ness to the face of the wearer, .while red tones down the redness of the skin'; Blue assists the beauty of a blonde, yellow that of a brunette. White vivifies a bright complexion, black subdues it. Thus a negress can wear a colored dress which- would 'be Intolerable on a white, and an Indian nurse or ayah,, however old, is becomingly cloth; ed in muslin, which is unsuitable to any' but a youthful European.—Leisure Hour. ' Experience has demonstrated pretty thoroughly that marriage without the existence of love between the patties, seldom, if ever, results, happily. A union entered into because the judg: ment of each party was that the other possessed the qualifications of a good husband or wife; as the case may be,' has sometimes engendered love and been happy; but the chances are that if you should marry without the essential requisite—love—you would find the trials of matrimony, tod much for your patience arid regret tlie step when too. late; not to mention the . possibility of afterwards finding your "affimiy" arid the lamentable position iri which ybd would, then be placed.
