To My Mother.
So fold me close to your breast, mpUicr,
As in the days of yore ;
When I was but ft liili lliintr,
And lifflitlv sped the hours.
As fped the birds of svril'test wing,
Among the Kpritig-tidt) flowers.
Oh ! many changos I liavo seen, niotlier,
Since childhood's uioininp; smiled;
Changes which you never dreamed, mother,
Could crime to your poor child;
When r-he went forth frutn this dear borne,
With blessings on her head,
To walk the ways of lil'u with one,
Who Ipvc's sweet vows had said.
Put tho grofc cloted long ago, mother,
Above that manly form;
And I was left to brave alone, mother,
Lite's fiere arid bitUar storm;
And oh 1 that storm, bow dark it grew,
Till like a tempest wild;
It hon ed the head, and crashed the heart,
Of your poor suffering child.
Bwt I hare looked for light, mother, .
I'o that ptue source above,
. Where t here's no sorrow and no night, mother,
But all k peace and love;
And ol'limcs iu my daikcst hours,
JUy eoul has heard an angel voice;
Cheering up my tailing powers,
Aud bidding mo rejoice. ";
And now, I've come home to rest, rootlitr,
For borne, is home, yon keow;
So fold niecloso to your breast, mother,
. As io the blessed long ago;
A nd I will dream, I'm young agalo,
As in my childhood years;
Ferehunce tw ill ease this bitter pain,
And che k these burning tears.

Joe Chickweed's courtship and How he
was Cut Out.
"I vow I" said Joe Clr'ckvvenil, ns lie
stood before the pnrlor mirror, putting the
Inst touch to his well-oiled hair, "if I let
this night pass without finding out just how
I stand w ith Mclimla Martin, then I am A
cow. The critter's nlwyys noted so pesky
skittish, that there's no getting around her,
I like her, and she knoWg it, nd I'm In
clined to think that he likes me ; but she
likes more than one siring to her bow, and
I niit't cure but she'd ship mo any minute
if she could ouike b belter bargain. May
lie I'm doing her an injustice, ond I
liQpe I am ; but she acts sometimes 'tarn al -.
ly like n rial coquette-, and I don't know
what to tnuke of her. But to-night," ho
added, Jilting nu immensely wide-brimmed
hat upon his fliiniiie Lead, "to-night I'll
scltlo the matter ; I'll cross the Rubicon,
if I get my boots full ,of water. Melinda
ain't a bad spec, aud 1 might do worse most
"Do tell if it's como to that !" exclaimed
old Mrs. Chick weed, who hsd entered the
room unnoticed by her son, in time to hear
the last sentence. "Well, I've nil along
had a notion that you was aiiuin' iu that
Joe turned red from his eye-winkers to
his iitikles, and looked very sheepish. He
worked very busily, too, fur a few seconds
with blushing some imaginary dust from a
place between the shoulders of his coat,
w hich he could' nt reach, but be said noth
'There ain't, nothing to be ashamed ou,
Joe," continued the loquacious old lady, ap
parently greatly pleased at making the dis
covery she had ; "mid you spoke gospel
truth wlrvn you suid you might do woise
elsewhere. Melmda's a nice git.'1
" "Well," said Joe, gaining some courage
from his mother's timuner, "I'm, bouud to
make her mv wife if-'-"
"If what'," asked the old lady; ;,
"Well, if nothing's ngin h." " :
"Yoo just do your duty, Joe, and Melin
du's yourn. llemcmber th farm." '
"I t's a fine farm, no mistake 1'' suid the
young man, earnestly.
"No better farm of it's size in the whole
country than the Widdcr Martin's," suid
Mrs. Cliickwccd iu un emphatic tone.
"No, I think not." .
' "And then sec huw it's stotrkod ; two
yoke of the best steers in all these jiarts,
besides her two horses, snying nothing of
the rest of the critters. And, of course
they'll go with Meliixju when the widdcr's
deud, und before, too, for you will go right
on the farm as eooii ns you marry, and take
charge of everything."
"U's a good operation, that's a fact,"
snid Joo ; "but I pat a higher value on
Melinda than ull tlie property."
"And well rcu should, though the farm
a id fixin's ain't lo be despised."
"Oh, I uiu't one to despiso 'cm."
Joo laughed and left the room, arid soon
after he left tho lionse, and made- bis wny j
na expeditiously as the gloom of the even
ing would permit, towards the residence of
the Widow Martin. A light wiis burning
in tho front room, but the.window curtains
were closely drawn, sq that fci could not
get a view into the apartment as he passed
along the yard. He knocked at the door,
and was admitted by the widow iu person,
who, after inquiring benevolently aficr his
health, ushered him into the parlor.
It was alrepdy occupied by two persons
Melinda and Kenbeu Sparks, tho latter
a young man who had recently returned to
Springville from California, w ho was looked
upon ith especial disfavor by tho young
Joe was welcomed by the young lady,
bot not so cordially, as formerly, and by no
means so cordially as Joe thought his due.
He was greeted by Mr. Sparks in a sort of
joking, comlsceuding way that raised his ire
inwardly. However the conversation that
followed was apparently agreeable to all
parties, and the evening wore away till the
widow retired, when Mr. Sparks intimated
that it was perhaps time for him to bo re
tiring, as it wag quite a litilo walk to the,
village, Melinda at once asserted that it
wit.; very early indeed, and ho fcltPHld not
think wf leaving so soon ; whereupon Mr.
Sparks was induced to remain u while long
er, and Mr. Cliickwccd was gecrctly enrag
ed thut Melinda should bo so takcu op with
the young sprig.
Califorpia, beca-ao the topio of conversa
tion, and Reuben Sp.irks shone brilliantly
iu his descriptive accounts of tbo country,
and what he had done there.
"Then you wareu't In the diggin ' V in
quired Joe, iu response to sometbing Jiis ri
val had uttered.
"By no means," replug Sparks, loftily.
"I left the digging to those who were used
to it ; I had no tasto that way."
"Oh, then, you stoppsd ia town ?"
"Business, I s'pose. Cifit rato there ?"
"Yes. A young man of talent will soon
engage himself ia profita'blo employment."
"Then I 'pcct you must have done ex
traordinary well," said Joe, in a tone he in
tended should be sarcastic.
"OU !" replied the other, langhing in, a
meaning way, and wiudng with one eye at
tho young lady, who .appeared to take and
enjoy It accordingly j ? for that matter
I '-an't complain. I think improved my
chance I rather think I di4- I don't
complain by no injcans.'1
''Then, why (Jidn't yqu'stay longer?
You weren't gone but a short timo ; you
should hare stayed a year or two more, and
made yout.elf independent."
"IVJiaps I em independent already ; I
say perhaps. Of course, I can't tell you
the exact amount I made that, I think, ts

spoke, ad jrav her auoluer wink, tvuich

she blushed and appeared, wonderfully em

If he has not turned her he ud, then there ia
a mistake somewhere. I don't believe he

But jterhaps it ain't loo late yctl maybe she
will consent to have me yet, if I loso no
time in asking her. I'll try it, I row I
will. I'll gu over again to-morrow and
have the thing settled."
And .having come to this conclusion, ho
hurrttd forward, and soon after was dream
ing of Melinda Martin, the widow, herself,
and an infinite number of Reoben Sparkses
who were endeavoring to chase him up a
steep hill, and beat his brains out with bars
of California gold.
Mrs. Chickweed was most anxious next
moruing to learn from her son the result of
his mission to the w idow's, but Joe was si
lent and pensive, avoiding his mother's eye,
and keeping away from the house ns much
ns possible. Late in the evening he care
fully dressed" himself in the best suit, and
with a look of determination stamped ou
his features, he onco mure determined lo
visit tho Ccklo Meliuda,
He found her at home nnd alone.
"Hope you spent an agreeable evcuing
yesterday," roinqrked Joe, after he had
passed io nsnal compliments, and seated
himself near the lady.
"Qh, yes, I did, I assure you," was.
'"Mr. Sparks, I should say, is a verf en
tertaining young man ?"
Joe didn't think anything of tho kind,
but quite the contrary. "
"Ue is, iudced," responded Melinda.
J, oe looked anything but pleased ot this
encomium on his vival, and ' sat for some
moments in utter silence. At length he
turned, to ihe young lady and spoke
'I came lierolast evening with the inten
tion td" sneaking with you on a particular
subject, but i found you so engaged tat
I determined to call again to-night, and so
'Here yoq arc,' said Mx-lindu, smiling at

I'll tell you at once what I've come for.
You know I love you; I've told yon as
much ruore'n once, and . I'.ve flattered mv-
self that I waren't Indifferent to you. But
now I wish you to tell me if you really love
me In return, ond if I may hope to mako
yoo my wife. Will you marry me? "
' You ore quite right,' sbo said, ' in sup
posing that yon ere not lnd;uereut to rue,
for I regard you very highly.'
'Then, all my fears hove been ground
less! " uttered Joe, cxultingly.
' Ihcn,' contiuued tho lady, 'I cannot
very well grant your wishes, regarding
' W batl ' cried Joe, bis countenance sud
! cannot very well marry yon
'- Ai'd why can't yon? I'd like to know
w hat is to hinder your marrying me if you
think enough of mo.'
' There is one reason iu particular.'
What is it?'-
' I'm engaged to another.'
Joe turned pale.
' Sparks ! ' lie pried j ' telj me- tell me,
is it Sparks j '
Well and if H is?
I knew it Blast him, knevv .what
ho was after.' . . . , , . ,
' I don't kncv as Mr. Sparks lias acted
in any way as ho should not,' remarked the
young lady, warmly.
' He's a chcatiiig villain! ' replied Joe,
indignantly. . ;
4 You don't know him 5 lie's nothing of
4 It's you that don't know; bnt you will
before long. I've beeu tlevMnved, and I
ain't afraid to say so 1 it's tho money that
he pretends to havo that's lost me a wife;
but when you, war,. Jo touch it, just as like
as not you w'uut Ue able.' . '
He rushed from tho bouse as be ottered,
theso words, and hurried homeward. He
found his mother still np, and was eagerly
interrogated by her as to the luck be bad
met with. He told ber all, and little con
dolence was she enabled to offer Lim in re
turn. Yov two or thrco days following, Joe
Chickweed said very little, but he thought
much. Qne morning, ho met bin mother
with a smiling face, and a sort of triumph
in his look,. Xbe oe lady was somewhat
surprised at U.is sudden change in her son's
'Why, what on earth's the matter now,
Joe,' said she; ' hope you aiu't going craay.'
'Not by a long febot,' replied Joe; -'4 1
ain't quite so big a fool as that.'
' Then, what ails you?
4 Oh, I've got j, ail arranged at last; I've
got bim now.'
Who? What ?'
' Why, Mliuda and that vagahemd Reu

4 ell, how are yoa going to do it? '
Ob, it's all right 1 " said Joe, laughing
slyly, 4 I'll do it darn 'd if I dou't; I'll fix
the sneaking critter.' .
4 But bow bow, Joo ? Can't yoa speak
out? What' got in the boy?' cried the
old lady, dying with cariosity to know w hat
was his plan.
4 Well, I'll tell you all about it began
Joe, assuming a more sober tone.
4 Well, I wish you would.'
Yoa know the widder has always favor:

Joe was as good as his word. He sought
the widow end made his proposal. : She
was more astonished than she knew how to
express, but she was more gratiGed than
she was astonished. Fresh aud fair as she
was, considering ber years, she bad not
giveu op the idea of winning another hus
band; but it bad never entered her head
that she could possibly secure so young
and estimable a prize as Joe Chickweed.
Joe mad,e t n special proviso iu bis pro
posal that they should lie married privately
the day before the marriage of Sparks with
the widow's daughter,, and that it should
be kept a secret till the wedding had taken
place, fo this the widow readily agreed,

her to restrain the enjoyment sho expe

left the house, nnd meeting Joe near at

who had been duly admonished to secrecy,

hour thereafter Joe was a. married man,
and the no longer widow was on ber w ay

but very enormous k'ss, with which bo was
content to satisfy himself, considering what
was to follow, from so doing, on tbo. rapr
The wedditig passed off the next day to
the entire satisfaction or ull parties. The

puzzled tbo nevviytmarried pair to surmise,
as they bad not supposed be would be pre

ever, and seemed quite embarrassed by the
occasional banteriugs of tbo happy Sparks.
"I 'spose," said Joe, sfldicssjng himself to

assembled ia tbo parlor together "I "spose

as I shall.'

have any idea of settling on a farm ? You

'Don't kuow but I may,' said Sparks,
