My view by pray and barren hills la bounded;
I know their top cumnuuida a pros;t wide, .
fair, misty shores by sappire sea eurronmled.
And whlte-aniled slilpa upon the gleaming tide.
An'd oft I fain would climb their breeay hlght.
To feast my heart and eyes with besuty rare j :
Bu homily mules bur the rich delight.
Nor leave ne strength the steep ascent 10 bear.
And yonder, see, the bills stoop down for me;
Thty slope away with sudden downward aweep.
To give me one bright vista of the sea.
One glimpse of Us blue rest. Intense and deep.
One glimpse bevnnd the narrow now and here,
Into Hie iiitlnlte, tbe far away ;
There day blooms forth In gold and crystal clear.
And fudea io amethyst and rosy crey.
Thore fuiry barks, with sails aglow with light,
Flit like white ninths or golden hultcrtliu
Across from hill to hill and outol sight, 1

And while my hands pursue their lowly task.
Iv soul sails with them out of sittit nf shore?
In broad, calm light of cloudless sens I bask.

if she had a fault 111 dress, was given to
extreme simplicity: indeed, some of my
visitors used to say, "So you have got a

thoucrh I am not a crest ladv. nor unv-

permit my parlor-maul to "thou" and

I need not say that Annie was a con

"Take her earlier make her your

not seen her half a dozen times? "
"Nevertheless, madam, it is my inten

"Forgive me, madam, for interrupting
you, but 1 am sure you are yourself too
much of a gentlewoman to say anything
derogatory of the person I have selected

was at once so proud and so polite.
"I am twenty-six years of age, mad

mind and have an independent fortune.
lhere is no sort of use in opposing our
engagement, even if your kind heart
would permit you to do so. The chief

having reason, I believe, to be satisfied

I have come to ask of you the great
favor of your giving her away at the al

perfect strangi-rV Never!"
"My dear madam, J. honor your scru

low bow and I must say for grace of
manner I have seldom seen his equal
"but this is the address of my lawyers,
and this of a parish clergyman in your
vicinity, who will both vouch for my re
spectability and good family, lievond
these facts and that I have sufficient
means, independent of a profession, to

Mr. Trevelyan seemed such a nice
young man, and I hod such a true re
gard for Annabel, that, absurd as the
lirouosition of my giving her away to
him as first had seemed, I finally" came
into it, and about three weeks after

What she would have called me had she
been a lady of hereditary title, it is im
possible to conjecture; she had au im
mense vocabulary of abuse even as it
was, aud she exhausted it.
"I shall come again and let you know
what my opinion of you really is!" were
her last words, which were perhaps the
most terrible of all. She had nearly
frightened me out of my wits as it was;
atnl the threat of that scene being re
eated lay heavy 011 my soul for many a

other house. Thank Heaven, I uever

WOMAN AT SEA.
Two Types of Feminine Character.
The workings of the female mind at sea
are entertaining. It is the thing to have
all exclusive gentility give way iu pres
ence of the great deep. A number col
lected on deck gazing at the dashing
waves treats one to all the adjectives
known to our language of which "splen
did" "divine "beautiful" and "sweet,
ring in nnd out interspersed with little
shrieks and exclamation points, all hav
ing as much" real meaning as the tink
ling cymbals spoken of. We never
heard the said iuckliug cymbals, but
are of the impression that they must be
very frivolous. We are pained to write
it, but after some years of observasion
we are driven to the conclusion that the
average female mind has an utter con
tempt for the country and all pertaining
thereto; while their wrath and disgust
for the ocean are only equaled by that
felt bv the average male mind.
The first named, however, has the ad
vantage iu the stannig costumes "Kitten

dition to the sea dress, sixteen different
articles some poor masculine has packed

We have 1111 elegant lady of a certain
use, known as Mrs. Mooris Moiticulus,
who affects a masculine turn for machine
She attacks the poor captain in the
most unexpected manner as to the prin
ciple in mechanics. l'Air example:
"Uaotaiu, excuse me, but i am desir
ous to learn something substantial us i

mo upon what principle the propellor
1 must turn that over to Mr. Jones,
responds the bluff captain..

"How interesting; please explain."
"Simplest thing in the world, Mrs.
Morticulus. A number of nautical gen
tlemen were dining together at Delmoil-
ico s one eveuiug. JJunng the wine
and cigar interval the talk ran on the
trouble of side wheels. One of these
gentlemen, a man of 110 genius fur me
chanics whatever, was idly balancing a
cork-screw on his finger. Au idea struck
him. He left the table carrying off the
cork-screw, which was inserted in the
bill. A week after thegentlman of the
idea and cork-screw appeared in a Cran
berry Marsh, New Jersey, and consulted
Mr. Ikohesou, then an " obsctira young
lawyer ot great promise but uo practice,
lie showed Mr. ICobeson, a model stea

Dun 1'uii'l in Waili'tntton Capital.
A Musical Anecdote.
Talking of an organ reminds me of an
old church, near by whose members,
in time past, had conscientious scruples
about this instrument, although they
had none concerning the use of a band
of music in sacred service. Iu the con
venticle to which 1 refer, the trombone
was played by that famous performer,
Mr. I'crkins, distinguished for ihany
miles around for his "lung power.".
On one occasion, the conductor was dril
ling his choir 011 a piece of music which
he fondly hoped would win great eclat
for himself and his choir, on the follow
ing Sundav evenini. A line passage
marked ). occurred in the piece, which
would hate produced an exquisite effect
if it had been rendered with thai deli
cacy the leader endeavored to suggest
in the usual manner. Hut instead there
of, the trombone of Perkins blew a blast
that would have taken the Walls of Jer-
icho clean off their foundations. Con
stertiation and dismay were depicted on
the countenance of the horror-stricken
conductor. "Mr. l'erkins,,' said he, in a
stern voice.you have ruined me. What do
you mean by playing in that outrageous
mauner?" "Why, sir," replied Mr. Per
kins, meekly, "I played according to
the marks iu the book." "Let me see
your book, sir" said the conductor.
"There, sir, is not this strain marked
double yV" "Certainly" said Perkings. ,
"And pray sir, what do you understand
hy jjjf" "As I understood, and under-,
stand it, in this case, double p means,
Put in Perkins' and I did it." "You
('," repeated the conductor, his disgnst
giving way to the humor of the thing,.
and he ordered :i recess lor hall an hour.
Mr. II. C. Spurgeon has said and done
many things iu his furtherance of what
might be described as "jocular religion
and comic salvation." Hut at the late
anniversary i(f the London Missionary ,
Society, at Exeter Hall, he outdid him
self. Speaking of prayer, he said, "Oh,
for more prayer! I had uu odd illustra
tion of its power the other day in Italy,
lu the hotels there, there are little ivo
ry buttons in the w all upon which you
put your fingers. They communicate
with'eclectric wires which ring the bells
down stairs. A freiuJ came in to take tea .
with us, and 1 put my finger on the but- '
ton, but nobody came. "Now," said -my
friend 'I will put you up toa wrink-
le keep vour finger on the button. If ;
vou only just put it on, it rings the bell; ,
but if you keep your finger on, the bell -will
keep ringing dowu stairs. Well I
did so; but even the water did not come.
At length hiy friend said, ; we have a
couple of bedrooms here; 1 will go into
one and ring all three bells and then we
shall fetch up all the waiters in the ho
tel.' So we pat our fingers on three hut
tons and kept them there, and 1 warrant
you, the passage was soon lull ot wait
ers tumbliuif over one another. They
thought the whole house must be on fire.
We simply explained that as the ringing
of one bell did not do, we thought wo
would rina all three, and found it a cap
ital plan; but if they would only come
more qtiicklv another lime we would do
it no more, tf.vory time a man prays no
rings the great hell of heaven. If two
of you agree as touching anything con
cerning the kingdom, it shall bo done (
unto you. There is no resisting it. If '
every man and woman here would begin
to nit their fingers upon the bell, the
elect rie communication lie ween earth
and heaven would awakeuThe very an
gels, and bring them down with untold
blessings upon the church and the
world." We cannot help hoping that
the laughter and applause which greeted
the comparison of the holy angels rous- '
cd and waked up by prayer to the idle '
waiter tumbling over each other at au
Italian inn, does not express either tlm
piety or wisdom of the general body of
subscribers to the London Missionary
