Vagaries of the Night.
BY GEO. W. CROWELL.
When the hours of niyht, coma stealing
With a miifllid footstep slow;
Like the bells of niem'ry pealing,
In the distance soft und low.
With the shades of evening falling.
With their dim and misty light;
Ghotly lornm the soul appulling,
Breuk upon the startled lighL
Then the mind will sometimes wander,
Through the present, uud the past;
Lire, its my st tiea to ponder,
' Fancies crowding thick, and fust.
Crowding through the silent spaces,
Of the yearn which long have fled ;
O'or a sea of upturned luces,
Of tho living, aad llio dead.
And I feel their spirit breathing,
Like the ebbing to and fro;
Like the deep aud endless heavings,
' Of the Ocean, iu its flow.
T'is their onward swift invasion,
Through the lofty realms of miud;
Tis the fancies wild creution,
Out of spucc, and out of time.
Ilere I meet with silent greeting.
Forms that once have walked in pain;
While my heart in rapture beating,
Thrills my soul with joy again.
One among that passing number,
lk'arer fur thuu ult the rest;
Wakes my soul from out its slumber,
Wooes me to the laud of rest.
In her mild and angel benaty,
. Slow alie faded from my sight;
Moving up the path of duly.
Left this world of gloom ami night.
Oh I how lonelv, sad and lonelv,
Se ems thia darkeued vale of tears;
As I live, but living only,
In the light of buriod years.
In its pule onea'thly gleaming,
Comes a form to me divine, .
With a smile seraphio beaming,
Lights thia dreary path of mine.
Thus, when weary and faint-hearted,
Iu (he still and solemn night;
Ctfines the form of the departed,
Fills my goal with calm delight.
Fills It with a softened glory,
Like noma old familiar strain;
Like some long remembered story,
That brings buck my youth again.
Thus beats life's dim sounding measure,
To the tread of pawing years,
Through the realms of pain and pleasure,
Through tie laud or hope and fears.
But beyond no more enshrouded,
Lies the empire of the mind,
Where with faculties unclouded.
We, the lost aud loved, ahull fluJ,
Those in calm and sweet communion,
With the spirts of the blest,
Io the long looked for re-union,
Shall the soul be soothed to rest.
Foote expressed the belief that a certain
miner would tukeihe beam out of his own
" t knew he could sell the timber.
Losing a cow for the sake of a cat."

I know ayonnp ninn who fonntl himself

or Sharon, as you will. . The name is not
of the slightest consequence.
I Flirtation, which is not cxpresRly prohib

nostnoniiiir the revHlniion nfil tl.n eti,.-.
of theaeasoii ; end Nelly promised to keep
it a profnud secret. ' (
That night he retired to bis room and
nieditnted various schemes for extricating
himself from his embarrassing position.
He could admit every plan but one that
of marriage; ' .
lie had not decided npon any definite
ulan, when, next night, at the dance, Miss
Susnii II- , charming person, who bon-
01 rd him with a friendship bordering npou
the mitiuicutul touched him lightly on his
arm, aud paid, with a mysterious nir
'Sir, I congratulate you.'
'When-fore " he usked ; but she had al
ready glided away in the dance
The matter required an explanation, and
during a hiatus in the music they w ent
aside and Susun spoke in n serious mood :
"Nelly is my best friend ; she has told
all. Oh, you needn't blush so ut that I"
Iu fuel William colored with the idea
that his pretended engagement had already
been circulated among his iuiiinate friends.
He did not directly deny it, however, but
took a mei hod of his own.
. "Am I really engaged V ho demanded
"A beuutiful question to ask mc 1" said
Susan, with the slightest touch of spite.
"You shall judge, my case," said William.
"Suppose I repeated here what you bavt
heard a hundred times a thousand time:
that you are beautiful, intelligent am.
accomplished ; that your eyes uic the deep
blue of heaven ; your lips the transparent
red of the coral ; your locks the black Ins

grace of the swan, and your shoulders the

"Is it trne that you have said all these
pretty things to her ?".
"Is it not true. I could not have said
without a falsehood."
"And you nevor tell a lie 7"

"Neither do I. For example, if upon

supposition) aud say to you, 'O Susan 1

Then, do not want ; accept the offer of

"Oh, shame 1 shame 1" suddcuiy cried a
voice stifled with emotion.
The two retreated precipitately, seeing
poor Nelly, who ulso hnrried to her cham
ber to hide her disappointment and her
fury. Disturbed nt the disappearance of
her affianced, she had walked out on the
piuzza, hoping to meet him, und arrived in
lime to hear Ins gallant speech.
Heaven 1 what will she think ?'' ex
"Tho truth !" replied William.
Tho next morning, at breakfast, every
one was asking, "Huveyou heard tho news ?
William has broken his engagement." But
tbey were deceived ; for in three months
he married Miss Susan H , aud the

We are ready to admit that there arc
fools in ult classes of society. There arc
men, doubtless, who pride themselves upon
wealth which they had no agency in ac
quiring; who take to themselves mighty
airs uud do marvellously silly and unmanly
things. There arc men too, who think the
calling which they follow necessarily confers
honor upou them, whether they honor their
culling or uot. But these ore the men, of
all others iu the world, whoso opinions are
worthless men to be despised, if one thinks
them worth the trouble, or to be ignored,
if one docs not. But all the wise and good

As Incident. A touchiinrcusc wns pre
sented yesterday to the consideration and
chanty of one of the Good Samaritans
who now take care of the s;ck, relieve the
destitute and feed the starving. A boy
was discovered in the morning King in the

nud intelligent, but sick. A man who has
the reelings of kincliiess strongly developed,
went to him, shook him by the shoulder,
and nsked him what ho was doing there.

he. 'What do you mean,' said the the gen
tleman, touched by the pathetic tone of the
answer and the condition of llu hoy, jn
whose eye nnd flushed face he saw the evi

nnu lather, and littlo brother,' said he' 'and
iook them away to his home un iu the nkv
and mother told me when she was sick that
God would take cure of me. I hnvn nn

overcome with emotion, 'Lo has sent me to
take care of yon.' You should have seen
his eye flash and the smile of triumph breuk
over his face as he said, 'Mother never told
me a lie, sir, but you have been so long on
the way.' What a lesson of trust, aud
how this incident shows the effect of never
deceiving children with idle tales. As the
poor mother expected when she told her
son 'God would take care of him,' ho did

man with compassion and love to the little
