BEAI TIH L LIMES] 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 Graves. 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 thy and talented fellows, too, and tolera bly prosperous in the affairs of the world ; hut, strange to tell, they will occasionally get out on a bit of a lark without the ad vice and consent of their constitutional 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 exclaimed; •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 on. 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 Smith. ‘Good morning, Smith,’ said Robinson; ‘how do you find yourself this morning, old friend ?” ‘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! why!’ ‘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 used —’ ‘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. Smith. ‘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.’ BOOK AND JOB PRINTING, Will he executed in the neatist style, and upon the most favorable terms, al the Office of the. SCTTTESPsIT TPJBUITTE* -BY— WM. B. HARRISON. NUMBER 8. ‘U ell,’said Smith,‘if the cologne has benefitted me thus much it looks reasona ble that—’ 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 Smith. •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 gether. ‘ I dare say I had as well do it yet,’ said Smith. * 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 hatter’s bareheaded. ‘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— ‘ Gentlemen, this thing of drinking is a bad business-—a bad business, gentlemen/ * It really is,’ said Robinson. * And l am done with it,’ said Rogers. ‘And so am I, said Smith, ‘done with it—done, done, done !’ and he leant his | forehead upon the back of a chair before j him. ‘Gentlemen,’ said he, ‘I have been i thinking that a vender of intoxicating | drinks, and every one else, should be held accountable for all the evil and all the ex penses he occasions.’ ‘ That’s my opinion,’ said Rogers. * And mine,’ said Robinson. ‘ Rogers,’ said Smith, ‘1 wish, if you have any change, you would just pay this j barber for me.’ ‘ Certainly,’ said Rogers, as he handed | over the money. ‘ Robinson did you tell Stevens the money was good for this hat.’ ‘Certainly,’ said Robinson. ‘But you seem too despondent. What is the matter] You have not been so deeply injured.’ ‘No,’ ssid Smith, teatfully. ‘No, not very. But its my opinion, I say, that eve ry vender of intoxicating di inks, and every j one else, should be held accountable for all the evils, and all the expenses he acca sions.” ‘And mine too,’ said Rogers. ‘And mine too,’ said Robinson. And the two friends locked at each other cunningly. ‘I am glad,’ said Mr. Smith, ‘that both of you, my friends, concur with me. The manipulations of my friend, the barber, have been very pleasant, and time was not pressing with me. The new hat is very i desirable also. Your sentiments are very just too, and 1 derive much pleasure from that. And now, that in accordance with them, you have paid the barber, and as | sumed payment for the new hat, you can dispose of the old one if you please— after first taxing the paper from the lining. Ex j cuse me as I have bank business to attend to. Good morning. And never was Smith so much admired by the ladies on the avenue, as on that blessed morning; and Stevens has inform* 1 ed us that there is no more punctual cus tomer in the city than the jocular Mr. Ro j binsoti, who called to ay for a hat tho other day, half an hour after he had ! bought it.
