limn/or something in tltc imd^e of ft
man, exceedingly tipsyous, lying on the
ground, amidst scattered chips andshav-:
byjeeringnnd plagueing him. Upon
remonstrance one of them said that he
had throw’d a stone at Jimmy Gahboh'
•pause lie tickled liis ear with, ft shavin
wl »en he was asleep/ This ‘ was no ex
cuse, and we told the boys so; ‘but.
somehow or nother/ like the Ameri
cans at Bladensburgh, they did’nt seem
to take no interest. Meamvhiie, the
poor inebriate, had raised himself part
ly up, resting oh one side, and said; >Vhy
can t they let me be? Wish to-God-
was an Ingin-r-tliat’s all 1 hope?
Two squaws with two moccasins and
■Other wampum bead work, had been
drawdling along by, a moment before,
which probably suggested the thought
that was permeating his. half-addled
bruin. He finally stood upon his feet
but his knees were not like the firm oak
ship's knees .which were piled up around
him’; the feeble knees failed hiin, and
down lie went. He stretched out an
arm. laid his head upon it, and . was
presently in the land of dreams. All
this tiflie the mischievous 1 »o>;.s were
watching him, while we watching than
throgh a crevice in jthe board fence
which surrounded the yard. At length
he was fast and sound asleep. Iiis yaw
ning shoes disclosed all his toes on each
loot; ‘and as we gazed we saw’ one of
the little rascals making a slip-noose,
within, strong twine, around one of his
big toes, which protruded from the clam
shell opening of Ills old shoe, that look
ed, more than anytking-else* lil$e' the
head of a great black snake. To the
other end of the twine, which had a
long purchase, they tied securely the
ragged remnants of a large brickbat.
They then carefully-removed from a
wide space around him oven* other pos
sible thing which he might get hold of
to throw at them; but this missile they pTHe fise ii right! the clalmda clear,
placed, as tho Irish have it, ‘convenient >Vh’^h I will shortly xriakejippear
to his hand/ Then all thojaughiug boys
yetired to a safe distance save v»tu\- ho
remained to tickle tho slepjKw’s ear nnd
nose with a thin pine splinter, to arouse
him from his slumber. Presently the
wretched inebriate awoke: and seeing
his tormentor beating a retreat, at the
same time laughing ‘ready to split Iiis
sides/ he seized the decoy .missile and-
huried it alter him. It was cruel! Tl.e
string came up with a round turn, which
almost tore the poor fellows toe off. He
roared with the self inflicted pain and
.then he straightway staggered thence.

He is a man of few words; ho said.

Yet time flies on* with* tireless wing
O'er the far streep of centuries spread
To blight the hopes to which we cling
Mocking tho living and the dead
How like a sunbeam gone astray,
'Mid shadows on a summer's day,
We see the spot whereon it played,
We look again upon the shade
The transient beam did seem to qurver
Then quit the anxious gaze forever.
’Tis so with time! It quickly flies,
Like prismy colours in the skies,
Waisting the beautiful and new,
Blighting Earth’s daughters and its sons;
We sigh to think how swiftly through
Life’s course the spirit rafts.
Yet full,of trindom, to tho heart,
Its stern instructions doth impart
Th^n .do uot let its lessons pass,
