Ia it anybody’s business.
If a gentleman should choose,
To wait upon a lady,
If the lady don’t refuse!
Or—to speak a little plainer—
That the meaningall may know—
Is it anybody’s business
If a lady has a beau ?
If a person’s on the side-walk,
Wnether great, or whether email,
Is it anybody’s business
Where the person meanr to call!
Or, if you see a person,
As he's calling anywhere,
Ia it anybody’s business
What bis business may be there!
The substance of our query,
Simply stated would be this;
Is it anybody’sbusioessa
What another’s business is I
If it is, or if it isn’t,
We would really like to know,
For we’re sure if it isn’t
There are some who make it so.
If it is, we’ll join tire rabble,
And act the noble part
Of all the tattlers ana defamers r
Who throng the public mart *,
But if not, we’ll act the tcaeber
Until each meddler learns,
It were better in the future,
To mind bis own concerns.
The Wedding Ring.
As the earth with sea is bounded,
And the winter world with spring,
So a maiden's life is rounded
Witha golden wedding ring.
This old world is scarce worth seeing,
’Til! love waves his purple wing,
And we gage the bliss of being.
Thro’ a golden wedding ring!
Trust the swamp fire that beguiles,
Trust the tenrs of crocodiles,
Trust the brokers, trust the lawyer,
Trust the rock that trembles o’er you;
But never trust the tears that lie
A mbnsbcd in a maiden’s eye.
Trust the poet’s dream of glory,
Trust the gaberlunzie’s story,
Trust patriotic politicians.
Trust financiers and steam physicians;
But. when girls sigh.as they are wont.

A Daguerreotype of the Devil
A friend of ours from Virginia related
to us the following graphic and emiently
faithful description of liia Santanic
Majesty, as given by a negro preacher
to bis " colored brudderin.” It is as
genuine as it is novel and amusing, and
we give the exact words of the sable
preacher: “ Stan ’side niggers, luf me
tell you. I hab a dream and see
debit. He bab an eye like do
he hab a nose like canoo; he hab
ear de same as ‘bocca leaf; he had
shoulder like de Blue Ride, and he had

Right After All.—An Irish gentle
man hiving a party to meet at a tavern,
exclaimed, on arriving and finding the
room empty : “So I am first after all.”
The waiter informed him that he was
mistaken—that his friends had been
there and were gone. “ Very well,” repli
ed the Hibernian, "then I have made no
mistake, for, as they were all here be
fore me, surely I was right in saying I
was first after all.'’
“ Young man, do you believe in a

The average existence of great em
pires, from infancy to filial dissolution,
lias been about two thousand years.
England and France arc now in the last
centuries of that period. Some nations,
however, wear out in a century or two.
Think.—Believe me this world is
not a world in which we can do well
without thinking,and least of all, do well
in the matter of our souls. Don’t think,’
whispers Satan; he knows that an un
converted heart islike a dishonest trades
man’s book—it will not bear a close in
spection. ‘Consider your ways,’ says
the word of God—stop and think—con
sider and be wise. Well says the
Spanish proverb, ‘Hurry comes of the
devil.’ Just as men marry in haste,
and repent at leisure, so they make mis
takes about their souls in a minute, and
then suffer it for years.

The Mother.—A writer beautiful-
y remarks that a man’s mother is the
representative of his maker. M isfortune,
and even crime, set up not barriers be
tweeu her and her son. While his
mother lives he has one friend on earth
who will not listen when he is slandered,
who will not desert him when he suf
fers, who will sooth him in his sorrows,
and speak to him of hope wheu he
ready to despair. Her affections know
no ebbing tide. They flow on from
pure fountain and speak happiness
through this vale of tears, and cease only
at the ocean of eternity.
If there be a situation wherein women

her, the viand hath an added zest, and
