Once more, once more, my Mary dear; I sit by that lone stream, Where first within thy timid ear 1 breath’d love’s burning dream. The birds we loved still teil their tale Os music on each spray, And still the wild rose decks the vale— But thou art far away. In vain thy vanished form I seek, By wood and si ream and dell, Ami tears of anguish bathe my cheek Where tears of rapture fell; And yet beneath these wild-wood bowc.'S Dear thoughts my soul employ. For in the memories of past hours There is a mournful joy. Upon the air thy gentle words Around me seem to thrill, Like sounds upon the wind harp’s chords XX neb all the winds are still. Or like the low and soul-like swell Os th t wild spirit-tone XVhich haunts the hollow of the bell VX hen its saddening chime is done. I.seem to hear thee speak my name In sweet, low murmurs now, I seem to feel thy breath of flame Upon my cheek and brow; On my cold lips I feel thy kiss, Thy heart to mine is laid— Alas; that such a dream of bliss. Like other dreams must fade. What is Home without a Mother ? XVhat is home without a mother, XX hat are all the joys we meet, XX’hen her loving smile no longer Greets the coming of our feet. The days seem long, the nights are draary, And time rolls slowly oil; And O, how few are childhood’s pleasures XX’hen her gentle care is gone. Things we prize are first to vanish, Hearts we love to pass away, Am! how soon, e’en in our childhood, XX 6 beho : d her turning grey; Iler eye grows dim. her step is slower, Her joys of earth are pa sed, An 1 sometimes, ere we iearn to k now her She has breathed on earth her last. Older hearts m.iy have their sorrows, Grief that quickly dies away, But a mother lost in childhood Grieves the heart from day to day. XX’e miss her willing hand. Her fond and earliest care, And 0 ! how dark is life around us— XVhat is home without her there! The Light oh the Shore. Our life is a bubble, And Tinie is the ocean ; Each wave is a trouble, And Love the commotion. Our breeze is a sigh, That wafts us •Ase u’er , And soft woman’s eve, The light on the shore. From the rock of Despair XX’e let go the rope, Through the breakers we wear XViih the anchor of hope; “Heigh ho!” is the cry, True Friendship the store, And soft woman’s eye The light on the shore. Though we weather the blast, And cherish the cargo, Grim Death comes at last! And lays an embargo 1 XX’hen thus called to die, May we still look before, Still keep in our eve The light on the shore. IST* Men and women are never more fre quently outwitted than when they are trying to outwit ollieri'. It is b' ttir to have ofie God on your side than a thousand creatures; as one foun tain is better than a thousand cisterns. Never be idle Always have some thing to go. Remember moments are the golden sands of time. There is an efficacy in calmness of which we are unaware. The element of se renity is one which we peculiarly need. The purest joy we can experience in one we love, is to see that person a source of happiness to others. a® There is no exception to the rule of three. As your income is to your expendi ture, so will the amount of your debts be to your cash in pocket. There are three kinds of friends friends who love you, friends who do not trouble themselves about you, and friends who hate you. ItetY* Life, we are told, is a journey—and to see the way in which some people eat, you would imagine they were taking in provis ions to last them the whole length of the journey ? makes us proud when our love of a woman is returned ; it ought to make us prouder still when we can love her for her self alone, wiihout the aid of any selfish re flection This is the religion of love. Good manners should begin at home i Politeness is not, an article to b- worn in full | diess, only to be put on when we pay of re i ceive a eomp’imentary visit. Plutarch says in h : s life of Alexan der, that the Bibvlonians used, during dog i days, to sleep on skins filled with water In ; these days many men sleep on skins filled ; with bad whiskey. ! Intellectual pleasures are of a nobler I kind than any others They belong to be j io'js of the highest order. They are the in ■ elinltions of heaven, and the entertainments ' of the Deity. Men who follow nnv business for a livelihood, should make that l>ii<iiies>; tl.eir sillily. Boys whose mivlls are iriv.ys |,< of on anything < Ise but their Imsitess ti.-v. r make efhvicnt workmen, nod iron-o qte i tly become vagabonds. BSaY’ Let the foundation of thy ff- cthHi be virtue, then make the building as tich and as glorious as thou canst ; if the fminda tlon be beauty, or w alih, and the building virtue; the foundation is too weak for the bliildihg, find it will fail. Happy is he, the ' palace of whose affection is founded upon vir tue, walled with riches, glazed with beauty, . and rooted with honor, Uisfdliuicous. Tho Face at the Window. It was a woman’s face Lsaw as I drew rein at Cuthbert Hall—a pale, calm, al most proud face, with larfe Creole eyes, and coal-black hair, looped away from the cheek in heavy and shining folds. I had seen many more beautiful faces during my winters in h’«w Yoik and Washington—my summers at Cape Mav, Newport, and Nahant; and, besides, I was expecting to meet at the ball a certain Southern belle and heiies.-. r ii sister-in law of the friend who had inviied me at his house. So I gave only glance to the pale stranger, aihiLjdism uiiiting, rang the bell. A slave answered the sum inons, and, conducting me into the libra ry, went to call Ins master. In a few mo* inents the door opened, ahd the lady whom I had seen at the window came in, with two curly-headed children clinging about, her, She Dade me good morning in a voice stVeel as the thrill of a lute string, and sai<l. with some embarrassment I “1 am sorry that Mr. and Mrs. Cuthbert are both out riding ” “Ah ! and so am I,” was the answer; “out I suppose they wid not be long; for though they did not expect me to*day, 1 wrote them I sluuld probably be here this week.” “ Then, yon are Mr. Vincent ?” ‘•Richard Vincent, at your service; and now introduce yourseif?” “I—l—l am"—she paused, wound one of the little girl’s ringlets about her fin* ger in her confusion, and began again, “1 am’’—once mure she hesitated, and 1 resumed: “1 have guessed it —you are the gov erm ■« !’’ t>he smiled, but the color mounted to tier very temples. “Foor and proud/’ 1 soliloquized; “how dial Idiisli becomes her At tins moment we heard the t amp <•( hoir-es’ feet, and saw Cuthbert ,-i;d his beautiful wife dashing up the bsoad aven ue leading to the mansi-m. The govern" ess nastily left me, ami I shortiy alter saw her talking to my friends in the veiandah. Their brief conteicnce over, my host ami hostess entered and gave me the cordial welcome which is the characteristic of the South. When the greetings had been tiiterchangid. 1 turned to Cuthbert and said; “Pray where is Miss Dupont, the charm* ing sister in*law of wnom you spoke?’’— He and his wife exchanged significant glances, and I contained—“l am all impa tient to see this pioagoii; don’t keep me long in suspense 1* ■ “I will not —you will meet at dinner I’’ The next moment the dressing bell rang, and the host led the way to the guest Chamber where he left me to make my toilet. In those days I was not in different to personal appearance, and with the aid of an attentive slave I arrayed myself in the most elegant suit my ward* robe afforded. “1 wonder if I shall suit the heiress?’’ I queried, mentally, as I took a lass sur vey tn the mirror and descended the dins ing'hall. There, near the table, sat Cuth bert and his wife, the f'aCe I had seen at (he window, and not far from the govern ess a young lady with a fair complexion, a blooming cheek, the sunniest of blue eyes, and a profusion of golden hair. 1 was a connoisseur In ladies’ dress at that per od, and took in at a glance her costly India muslin robe, with its frills of Meeh n lace, the splendor of her bracelets, neck* lace and eardrops, and the exquisitely wrought, golden comb, which looped up the rich tresses. Why was if that my face wandered from her to the pale, cahn governess, with her bands of raven hair, and her great eloquent eyes, and a dress that fell about her like a “Dnnmist ?” "Blanche,” said my host, “allow me to present an old and valued Ir.etid, Richard Vincant !” The blone beatify* colored, simpered, and with an inclination she intended to be like that of a prima donnatoan applaud ing crowd, acknowledged my bow. “Miss Marguerite." resumed Cuthbert, •‘this is the guest we have been expect ing’’’ She bowed with the grace of a queen, and I as resp<‘ctfuily as if she had indeed been one, as I said. “We have bad the pleasure of meeting before, Cuthbert I" “As I told yon,” murmured the govern ess, “I went down to tell him you were absent.” The ceremonies of dinner now began, and as a seat had I ”en assigned me be side Blanche, I tried to play* the agreea fj£. but I often found my thoughts Wan* dering to the pale, silent girl opposite.— When the meal was over, and the ladies had left the l’o m. we lingered at <mr wine. “What do you think of my sister I’’ ask I ed Cuthbert. “She is very beautiful,” I replied, “And have you fallen in love at first sight ?’’ “If I have f shall not tell yon !” I ex* I claimed, and then we went tin e.liatti’ g Ina merry strain. When we adjourned to the great, cool, luxurious p.o'or, 1 I found Mrs.Cutlibert and her s ; > r. but the I governess was walking loand fro -,>n the - terrace, apparently absoib -d t:„, i The uanal small talk ensued, and .t last, ! at my request, the lleirtiss sat d iwn at i the piano, am! played and sang with much I skill. I had »l>sei v.-d a harp :n 'lie holt* doir adj; nt, find lugged her to sweep its sti ings l'ii me. ‘ I cannotsite KiiiJ. M iss M , rile ea--; I will call her ’ Aml nt v'iij ' i the v. iitdov , t-’!'

As Site sat Ih-ne I noticed fm the liisf time the Riiphib f.i,,;, t-tmns of her lingers, the ifi'aCelttl pifise f her head tip the stately imrk; but I * <r,,| thrive wltt'ii she smoie the tilloids of the harp anti began to sing. I xVaa sh.. n.n impiuvisalriUU ? 1 thought she must be, so full of soul was the music she poured forth, and wlietl she concluded I asked .Mrs. Cuthbert whose Ccmpositton it was. “Her own,” she replied, “and she never knows what she is going to sing when she commences.” I littered no fulsome words of cotnmen dation to Marguerite, but my eyes must, have spoken volinnes of approval That night when I retired to rest, fflv dreams were tmt haunted by the heiress, but by the pale face 1 had seen at iliti window—the face of Marguerite the gov erness. The next morning I was awake at. an early hour, and glancing out saw Margue rite, gliding across the lawn. 1 liast< tied to join h t ; her cheek wote a rich glow; het dark, lustrous eyes were full o| light: her lips tremulous with smiles; her White apron was full of snowy blossoms, and she bad wreathed a spt ay of jasmine amid the blackm'ss of her hair. How we be gan to talk 1 scarcely know, but I never was so entertained by any woman as by her. I could touch upon no suljec in lit erature or art w ith which she was not fa rtiiliar, and Madame de Siael might have coveted her Con Versa! imial powers. On the lawn we subarated, but when we met at breakfast in the presence of the Cuth berts and the supercilious heitbss, 1 saw that the old governess’ look had come back to her face, and she was more reii* cent than ever. My friend proposed a horseback excursion to a boiling spring in the r.eighboihootl, and wtien ottr patty assembled on the verandah, I noticed w ith the keenest disppoiutment dial the gov erness had been exclm ed, I rode at the bridle rein of the fail Blanche, who looked very pretty in the blue habit, aiid with her vet.el cap set Coqnettishly above tier golden i.Csses, but I found it an eil’o.t to interest my sell in her common place chit ciiat. 1 fell a sense of relief when we dismounted al the hall, and as soon as I tiaU led my parinei in, bounded up the siancase. Un the way to mJ’ Cham er 1 parsed an op i. door, atld through it caught a glimpse ol Marguerite. the two cniidivn wete busy at their tasks, ami she sal patiently correcting a sketch wutch <ii,e ul liu-m had made. A portfolio .ay lieslde her, which, I doubted not, was rilled with hei own drawings. She heaid my step, and looking up saw me on the Huusirimid. “What ' ’ she exclaimed, ’’ “have yon returned so soon ? 1 did not expect you for an hour or two. 1 hope you nave en joyed yiitirsclf.” “No, 1 have not. I was really* disap pointed because you did not go.” A faint smile passed over hei face. “!—1 ” she muiteied; “you can’t under stand etiquette, it you sdipose a govern ess is to tie made an equal.” 1 felt the blood rush to my brow, us I replied. “There are many false notions in soci ety; 1 am sore Mrs. Cuthbert’s governess is the equal of any one here, and as such 1 legard her.” Her face crimsoned, and for a time there was a silence, which i broke by say ing: “Is this the schoolroom ?” “Yes.” “It looks very cool and plesant; may I come iu “I suppose Mrs. Cuthbert would have no objection.’’ “1 hope not,” and with these words I moved to the table at which she was sit ting. “Does that portfolio belong to you ?” I enquired, laying my hand on the article inquestion. She bowed assent, and 1 re sumed —"Shall 1 have the pleasure of ex amining its contents ?’’ “Certainly, sir.” She was calm, grave, quiet, but when I drew forth the pictures and began t> expatiate upon tin in, her leticence vaic ished. Her eyes lit, ihe pale cheek glow ed, her lips —those mobile lips of hers— parted, and she talked with the enthusi asm ot girlhood I'ne sketches were in deed wonderful, and at last I said: “It is a shame for yon, with vour ge nius for painting, to dmdge as a govern ess I’’ ( Again that peculiar smile flitted < ver her features, as she murmnied: “The poor must do what they can—not what they would.” At this moment we were interrupted by the children, and I left her. In the afternoon, as I was lounging on a luxurious sofa in the library, the door opened, and Marguerite appearted, but at sight of me precipitatel retired “Stay I stay !’’ cried I. following her. “No, no, I cantiot, —I did not dream you were here; I was lonely, and came down here for a book.*’ “Come and get it.” With sohm relnc tatice she entered and look a splendid] • bound Copy of Tasso from the -lielf. 1 glanced at it and said: “What! do Jon read Tasso ? b “A little.” “Then take a seat beside rhe, and we will read together.” She hesitAted an instant, and then as sented. 'Hie liquid Tuscan language sounded Very beautiful, syllabe'ed in her accents, and the spell with which the gov erness bad bound me, deepened w.itb every passing moment. A month wore on, and one night I sat in rnv ciianibi-r, bolding co'iimnnica’ion with my own heart.

Facts for Pc or Farmers. “Those farmers who have most difficulty to make both ends meet; always plough most and keep most stock. Now tnese men take the true plan to keep thumselves always poor, because their crop and stock arc always poor aud bring little.” So writes John Johnson iu a letter to the Secr.taiy of our Society ; aud he thus illustrates his statement : “ it is good profit to raise 3UU bu-hels of wheat from teh acres, but when it takes thirty acres to raise that amount, it is raised at a loss.— So it is with cattle and sheep—you will see the thinking farmer making lour year old steers worth ftom to each, and In.- neighbor s at the same age not worth over $23 to {>4o.” His advice to the latter is, “ if his land is exhau.-ted. he should plough no more than he can thoroughly manure.— Seed with clover and grass, and let it rest, and that field will not only pay well for til lage, but :t will furnish manure (if rightly managed) to make another field of the same size rich also.” And then keep it tich, do not run it with grain until again exhausted, or the end of that laud wi I be worse than the first,— Country Gentleman. Goodness, like the river Nile, over flows its banks to enrich the soil, and to throw plenty into the country. Goodness is generous and diffusive: it is larg'.ness of mind and sweetness of temper- balsam in the blood, and justice sublimated to a richer spirit Goodness is justice and somewhat m .re. Goodness is modest aiid sincere, in . oil■ nsivc obliging : it rutiles and dis ! turbos nobmiy, nor puts anything to pain Without uiccs-lty. God never accepts a good inclination instead of a good action, wheie that action may be done ; nay, so much the contrary, that if a good inclination be r.ot seconded by a good action, the want of that action is thereby made so much the more criminal and inexcusable.
