The New England Diadetn gives its readers
the following beautiful stanzas, which were
suggested by hearing read an extract of a letter
fioin Capt. Chase, giving an account of the
sickness and death of his brother-in-law, Mr.
Brown Owen, who died on his passage to Cali,
fornia. W e have scldam met anything so pain
fully interesting in every line, and will be read
with “leary eyes" by many who have lost bro
thers, fathers, husbands or sons on their way to
or after having reached the land of Gold and
Lay up nearer, brother, nearer,
For rny limbs are growing cold,
And thy presence senmetli dearer,
W hen thy arms around me fold ;
I am dying, brother, dying,
Soon you’ll miss me in your berth,
For my form will then be lying
'Neath the ocean's briny surf.
Hearken to me, brother hearken,
I have something 1 would say,
Ere the veil my vision darken,
And 1 go from hence away ;
I am going, surely going,
But my hope in God is strong,
I am willing, brother, knowing
That He can do nothing wrong.
Tell my father when you greet him,
That in death I prayed for him,
Prayed that I may one day meet him,
In a world that’s free from sin ;
Tell my mother, (God assist her
Now that she is growing old,)
Tell her child would glad have kissed her,
When Iris lips grew pale and cold.
Listen brother, catch each whisper,
’Tis my wife I’d speak of now,
Tell, oh tell her, how I missed her,
When the fever burned my broiv ;
Tell Iter, brother, closely listen,
Don't forget a single word,
That in death my eyes did glisten,
W ith the tears her mem'ry stirred.
Tell her she must kiss my children,
Like the kiss I last impressed,
Hold them as last I held them,
Folded closely to my breast ;
Give them early to their Maker,
Putting all her trust in God,
And He never will forsake her,
For He’s said so in His Word.
O rny children ! Heaven bless them !
They were all my life to me,
Would I could once more caress them,
Ere I sink beneath the sea ;
'Tvvas for them 1 crossed the ocean,
What my hopes were I II not tell,
But I've gained an orphan’s portion,
Yet He doeih all things well.
Tell my sisters I remember,
Every kindly parting word,
And rny heart has been kept tender,
By the thoughts their mem’ry stirred ;
Tell them 1 ne’er reached the haven,
Where I sought the “precious dust,’’
But I ha,e gained a port called Heaven,
Where the gold will never rust.
Urge them to secure an entrance,
For they’ll find their brother there,
Faith in Jesus, and repentance
YV ill secure for each a share—
Hark I I hear my Saviour speaking,
’Tis, I know his voice so well,
When I’m gone, oh don’t be weeping,
Brother, here’s my last farewell.
A Swollen Head and the Planner
of Treating It.
Smith and Rogers are good looking, mid
dle aged gentlemen, and very clever, wor

get out on a bit of a lark without the ad

visers —id cst, their wives. Now, it hap
pened last week that, after “making a
night of it” together, and indulging a brief
morning nap, they met at the barber’s.
‘Good morning, Smith,’ said Rogers.—
How do you find yurself.
‘Pretty bright, Rogers,’ said Smith—
‘head a little queer, though.’
‘Ah, indeed !’ said Rogers. ‘Fact—does
look a little queer.’
‘What 1’ said Smith. ‘Look a little
queer! What do you mean by that V
‘Why, Smith, I don’t mean any offence.
I only think your bead does look a little
queer. I think its swelled some.’
Smith’s face was well lathered, clear up
to the temples, his long hair, brushed
backwards, hung over the chair. He sud
denly lent forward, and dropping the tow
el from his neck, and looking into the “e
--rious face of Rogers with amazement, he
•You don’t mean to say that V
‘But I do though,’ said Rogers; 'yet it
may be only a notiou ot mine.
'Oh !’ Bait! Smith; and he threw las head
back again, and the lathering process went
By this time Rogers had completed the
insertion, around Smith’s hat, under the
leather lining, where it fits the head, of a
copy of the Baltimore ‘Sun,’ which he
showed to Robinson, a friend whohadjusi
stepped in, at the same time placing the
point of finger of the right hand alongside
his nose, and casting a sly glance towards
‘Good morning, Smith,’ said Robinson;
‘how do you find yourself this morning, old
‘Pretty bright, Robinson,’ said Smith.‘l
hope you are well, my friend.’
‘Quito well, 1 thank’ee Smith—quite
well. But how,what —eh, your head, Mr.
Smith ; isn’t eh, eh, —swelled some 1
‘Swelled some !’ exclaimed Smith ;
swelled some, eh ! how—ch ’ Robinson,
what do you mean V
‘Oil, nothing, Smith, nothing. 1 did
think—but ils nothing, I suppose. I tho’t
There was a little tension of the skin—en
largement of the a swelling, in fact i
but I suppose its a ’
•You suppose its wliatl’
Nothing, oh, noiliing, only just a notion
of mine, Smith,’said Robinson. ‘lt couldn’t
be that man’s head could spread out of a
sudden, I should think.’
*1 should think not,’ said Smith.
The barber was now done with him. ‘1
should think not!’ And he repaired to
the glass to put on his hat. T should think
not, indeed !’ and as he surveyed his po*
lished face and his sleek hair, he was evi
dently pleased. ‘No, no, my hoys,’ said
he, with a smile. ‘Smith has a hard head;
Smith’s head dont swell for a singlefrolic!’
and Smith laughed a glad kind of laugh,
which seemed to indicate an agreeable
condition of the invvaid man, such as a man
realizes when he is pleased with himself
and the rest of his race.
The barber gently plied the wisp to
SmiLlfs back, and Smith’s gloves were
neatly drawn on, and the barber’s boy, as
he smoothed its silky surface, said in a soft
tone, ‘flat, sir, your hat/’
‘Yes,’ said Smith, ‘yes thank’ee boy—
but! what! —my hat I—yes ! —hovv’s this!
—too small! —eh, Rogers, that is my hat!
‘Smith,’ said Rogers, ‘fact is, I think
your head is swelled—some.’
‘Pshaw !’ said Smith, hesitatingly, ‘that .
c-a-n-t be ; yet —how is this 1’
‘Depend upon it, Smith,’ said Robinson, i
‘your head must be swelled some.’
‘Why, it can’t be,’ said Stnilh very hesi
tatingly. ‘lt can’t be, Robinson ; how
could—but does it really look so I—yet !
this hat’s a ,’
‘Well, Smith,’ Robinson continued, ‘I
don’t see how a good rubhirigeould do any
harm, especially if cologne should be freely
‘The fact is,’ said Smith,my head would
feci better after a little rubbing, I am sure’
—and with the barber’s assistance,off went
coat, vest, and cravat, and down sat Mr.
‘Glug-glug-glug !’ said the bottle, and
its liquid flowed gratefully over ike unfor
tunate head of the perplexed Mr. Smith,
and the palms of the barbers hands played
freely around and about it.
‘Ah !’ said Mr. Smith—ah !’ and again
and again he enhaled with a long inspira
tion the reviving perfume, and then for a
time lie closed his eyes and gave himself
uji to the soothing manipulations of the si
lent and assiduous bather. At length, af
ter tho towel, and the comb, and the brush
had been successively applied, and the
neck had been well rubbed, and the exter
nal head once more presented the appear
ance of order and neatness, Smith arose
and was about to attire himself once more,
while his two friends were profoundly ab
sorbed in the morning papers.
‘Smith, said Rogers, ‘try your hat on
first. See if you are really benefitted.
Smith took up the hat from which Ro
gers had quietly extracted one fold of the
paper, and placed it gently upon his head.
He took hold of the brim on each side and
drew it down.
‘Rogers,’ said he, there is improvement;
but— my hat will not come on.’ Smith said
this with some solemnity.
‘Oh !’ exclaimed Rogers, ‘if that’s the
case—if there’s improvement, Smith—if
there is, Smith, there’s in occosion for
alaim. But won't your hat go down ? No
that's a fact, it won’t. Weil, Smith, let me
tell you 1 always find‘shampooing’ t<> do
tho most good. Suppose you try it.’

‘U ell,’said Smith,‘if the cologne has
benefitted me thus much it looks reasona
4 That the ‘shampoon’ will benefit you so
much more. Exactly—that’sclearenough,’
said Mr. Rogers.
‘Certainly !’ said Mr. Robinson.
And down sat Mr. Smith.
The towel was fixed before, andthetow
el was fixed behind, and ihesbampoan was
freely applied, and Mr. Smith’s head was
rubbed like a ball of soap between the
palms of the barbers bands; and the fingers
ol the barber tan through Mr. Smith’s hair
and Mr. Smith’s head looked like a field
of tall grass after a heavy blow and heavy
rain. At length the towel again absorbed
the moisture, the comb again reduced cha
os to order, and the brush again finished
the artist-like work.
‘How now Smith V said Robinson.—
‘Smaller ]’ (Another fold ofthepaper had
been extracted.) ‘Smaller, Smith V
‘My hat’s nigher to a fit; there is is no
mistake about that,’ said Smith.
‘But don’t it fit yet I’ asked Rogers.
‘No, not quite,’ said Smith—‘not quite—
and yet it’s nigh, pretty nigh.'
*De gentleman’s hair are tolibly long/
suggested the patient attist, who had al
ready earned two sips and a quarter, and
who now thought another levy would make
an even half.
‘\our hair is long,’ said Rogers,
‘Yes for such thick hair,’ said Robinson.
‘But my hat went on yesterday,’ said
•But you don’t expect to get entirely
cured at once, do you V said Rogers.
•Well, 1 intend to get my hair cut,’ said
Smith, and down ho sat upon the chair,
where the masculine Delila soon reduced
his sable fleece, the two friends mean
while reading very intently, Robinson’s
paper being upside down all the while.
‘Now you’ll do I think,’ said Rogers.
*1 should think so,’ said Robinson.
‘lf 1 don’t,’ said Simitb, ‘ I know what
will help me out.’
• Smith, you don’t mean to— ’
‘ Certainly not,’ said Robinson.
‘ Mean to what V
‘You don’t mean to use a compreess,
nor astringents, nor— ’
•Oh no,’ said Smith, impatiently; ‘I
wish 1 had done it at first; but 1 didn't
think of it. Todd or Stevens could liavo
finished mo with a prime hat at once.’
‘ That’s a fact,’ said both the friends to
‘ I dare say I had as well do it yet,’
* Well; if your hat don’t fit yet,suppose
you do,’ said Rogers, as he placed back
again inside the linen a couple of folds of
the paper he had just extracted.
Mr. Smith raised the hat to his trig-look
| itig head, but it still would not go on.
‘Robinson,’said he,‘l can’t go to the
‘Certainly not,’ said Robinson; ‘l’ll go
and pick a hat out for you.’
Mr. Robinson was not gone long; and
when a hoy brought two or three hats, a
selection was soon made by Mr. Rogers’
assistance; but Mr. Smith was moody arid
melancholy. At length with a tearful look
and a faltering voice he said—
