|toetn). MY MOTHER. BY HOB. A. B. KEEK. The fount from which my being flowed— The calm pure fount of life and love— The star that o’er my cradle glowed. And beamed my boyhood’* path above— IlaTC ceased from earth—and lonely now, Oh mother! o’er thy gravelbowl From childiiood's dawn to manhood’* hour, Thy tender love waa still my guide; It nurtured first the opening flower. Ami all mine infant wants supplied: Yes, every life-pulse of my heart Drew from thy breast its vital part! What visions of mine early years, What scenes of love, what sounds of joy. What prayers, caresses, smiles and tears, What counsels to the wayward boy, Now swim before my careworn eyes, While beudiug where mr mother lies. Her high pale brow, her patientsmile, Her lips where tenderest kisses hung, Her graceful form, though bent awhile, So queenly when heT life was young— All pass athwart my throbbing brain, Aud bring ber image back again 1 I ace her by my father’s side, Iu holiest love and union blest; I see ihem smiling in their pride, On happy children round them pressed, And now with fond parental care, They kneel iu morn and evening prayer. Ob, she was all that’s brightest—best— So “ pure in heart,’’ so ridi in mind— ■Of every social worth possessed— By every Christian graco refined— Faultless she filled her part below. And passed where only such may go! She’s passed to Heaven—but oh, how dark The sky from which her smile has gone 1 No star no v lives to guide my bark— No fount to cheer my spirit on. Yet, till my life shall cease to he. Her memory shall abid* with me ! A gentleman is defined to be one who can walk by a brick wall without biting a piece out of it. Pickles says that when he sees a young lady with a piece of’ court plaster stuck on her face, he takes it as a pretty good sign that she wouldn’t object to being courted in a different way. Young men will please take notice. 1 Women,’ says some homeless old bachelor, 4 are created half devil and half angel, and the angel part soars to heaven from the marriage altar/ “ O! give me, fair Emma, a lock of your hair,” A bashful young lover took courage and sighed; *• Twere a sin to refuse such a modest request—So take the Whole Wio,” the dear creature re plied. Moss will grow upon grave stones, the ivy will cling to the mouldering pile; the mistletoe springs from the dying branch; and God be praised, something green, will yet twine around and grow out of the seams and cracks of the de solate temple of the human heart. Sripf %\nm. VARIETY, THE SR WE OF LIRE.” Why i- a pretty young woman like -corn in time of scarcity ? Because she ought to be husbanded.
