Mr. Pease immediately camo in, when tho old
lady commenced her story:
" I came, sir," said sho "in behalf of A poor

but he got his rent and then broko bis promise,
And they have not scon him since."
"Is iuo woman respectable?" enquired Mr.
" Ves no not exactly," said the poor old lady,
vioiciiuy uguaicu. sue was won brought up.
She has a good heart, sir, but a bad head, and then
troublo has discouraged her. Poor Mary yes sir,
it must bavo been the trouble, for 1 hnow hor heart
is good, sir. I" tears choked the old In ly's utter
ance. Recovering herself, she continued :
" She hud n kind husband once. Ho was tho
father of her two little girls; six years ago ho
died, and the poor thing oh ! sir, you slon't
know how dear she is to me!" nnd burying hor
Ageil face in her hands, sho sobbed nloud.

emotion, without tho pain of an explanation. In

Yo, she wns "Mary's" mother. Poverty
eiuld not chill her love ; shiinio and tho world

U'lor a brief pnuso she brushed away her tears
nnd went nn :
"Y'essir; M iry wns a cood child to mo onee:

in Willctt street, with three children, and
heart told 1110 thut that was my poor lost Mary,
nnd thoro I found hor. But oh, sir oh sir"
she sobbed, as if her heart were breaking "such

TO SARAH B. DUGDALE,
ON HER SIXTYSEVENTH BIRTH-DAY.
Three score years and scyen hnve sped their flight
Since thou wnst welcomed to this earthly sphere
And yet thou Art not old I The spirit's light
Beams from thy face as beautiful And clear
As in the happy, gladsome days of youth,
Revealing the rich graces of A life
Whose spring is love to Ood, and Man, and Truth!
From warring creeds and thcologio strife,
Thy soul, nntrammelcd, turns away in grief j
For man, as man, whatever his belief,
Thy heart sends op to heaven its earnest cry I
For rich and poor, thy sympathies outflow ;
Thou wip'sl the scalding tear from sorrow's eye,
And hast an ear for every human want or woe I
My Christian friend I so generous, true And brave !
How oft thy words sublime have cheered my
Giving new strength to battle for the slave,
To do for man's high weal my equal part I
How oft thy simple, child-liko faith in God
Has put ignoble doubts and fears to flight,
And while I sought to break Oppression's rod,
Poured round my head stream of heavenly
The rime of age is on thy brow ; the staff
Supports thy failing frame J but childhood's
Rings not mire sweetly from the heart than thine !
Do always thine thnt peace without alloy,
The peace of Him, whose life was all divine;
And may thy widowed honrt forever sing'for joy I

This venerable woman, bcimr widelv known
both in the West nnd in the Kast, not only in the
Society ot rricmis, (in wtucn sno 11 as long been an
nccontablo minister), but also anions neonle of
other religious denominations, nnd especially to
many poor, unfortunate mcniticrs ot the human
family, who have been blessed by her active vn
pnthy, some of her friends have thought it not im
proper thnt this birlh-dny tribute should receive a
wider dissemination than was con torn plated by the
author. They have therefore roqucstcd a copy for
A VOTING MACHINE.
In one of the Washington journals we find nn
account of "A Voting Machine," inventod by Mr.
Samuel Huffman, formerly of Virginia, nnd now
residing in Illinois. The journalist who draws up
the description of the machine, enlarges at consid
erable length on tho ingenuity of its construction
and its very serviceable qualities.
It strikes us, that it is not necessary at this day
to invent nny new voting mnclnnes. Congress
abounds with such, and they nre of tho mos-t ser
viceable diameter ; they have their stations in the
Senate Chamber nnd in the Hall of Representatives,
where they ore plaited ready for use.
We hoar from timo to time of nowly-inventcd
churns, which are made the subject of pompous re
commendations, ns performing their work with
greater dispatch and perfection than any hitherto
known ; but every experienced housekeeper knows
that there is nothing after all which answers its
purpose so woll as tho old-fashioned churn, so long

them give the expected vote nt the oue time with
moro precision. Ho could not, wo are sure, oreate
11 system of springs, wheels and pullies which
would movo with so supple a facility, and so
little apparent friction, We nre very confident,
nlso, that tho old machines nre kept in order at
Imueli less expenso thaniur. Huffman scan possibly

Like that invented by Mr. Huffman, these votina
machines are brought from the northern States to
Washington, and arejthcro workod by Virginians
nd persons fri in other States of tho South. The
Virginians and their southern brethren havo a nat
ural lacmty in keeping these instruments in rceu
lar operation ; under-thoir expert hands they move
with all the exactness of clock-work, ana when
they are worn out and good fur nothing the centlo-
inaiily operator directs them to be rolled into tho

GRANDE-DAME AND CHILD.
BY ALICE CARET.
The maple's limbs of yellow flower
Made spots of sunshine here And there
In the bleak woods; A merry pair
Of blue-birds, whioh the April shower
Had softly called, were com that day;
Annthor week would britg the May,
And all the meadow-grass would shin
With strawberries; And all the tree
Whisper of coming blooms, And bee
Work busy, making golden wine.
The white-haired grand-dame faint and siek,
Sits fretful in ber chair of oak;
The clock is nearly on the strok
Of all tho day's best hour, and qulok
The dreary house will glimmer bright-
No candle needed any more
For Miriams smile is so like light,
The moths fly with her In the door.
The lilies carved in ber chair
The grand-dame counts, but cannot tell
If they be three or seven; the pair
Of merry blue-birds, singing well,
She does not hear; nor can she sea
The moonshine, cold And pure, And bright,
Walk like nn Angel clothed in white, .
Tho path where Miriam should be.
Almost she hears the little feet
Pattor along the path of sands;
Her eyes Are making pictures sweet,
And every brceie her cheek that fans,
Half cheats her to believe, I wis,
It is her pretty grandchild's kiss.
The dainty hood, her fnncy too
Sees hanging on the cabin wall,
And from her modest eyes of blue,
Fair Miriam putting back th fall
Of her brown hair, and Inughing wild
Her darling merry-hearted child
Then with A step as light And low
As Any wood-bird's in the snow,
She goes About her household cares.

"The saints will surely count for prayer
The duties love doth sweeten so,"
Snys tho ploascd grand-dame; but, aIas!
No feet are pattering on the grass,
No hood is hanging on the wall
It was A foolish dreaming, all.
The morning-glories winding up
The rustic pillars of the shed,
Open their dark bells, cup by cup,
To the June's rainy clouds; the bed
Of rosemary and meadow-sweet
Which Miriam kept with so much car,
Is run to weeds, and everywhere
Across the paths her busy foot
Wore smooth nnd hard, the grass has grown,
And still the grand-dame sits alone,
Counting the lilies on her chair
Her aucient chair of carved oak
And fretful, listening for the strok
Of th old clock, and for th pair
Of blue-birds that havo long been still;
Saying, as o'er the neighbouring bill .
The shadows gather thick and dumb
'"Tis time thnt Miriam were come."
And now th spiders ceas to weave,
And from between the corn's greon item '
Drawing after her hor scarlet hems,
Dew-dappled, the brown-rested Eve
Slow to her purple pillows drops;
His tired team now the ploughman stops;
In the dim woods the axe is still, -
And sober, winding round the hill,
The cows come home "Come, pretty one,
I'm watching for you at th door,"
Calls the old grand-dame o'er and o'er,
'"Tis time the working all were don."
And kindly neighbours come and go,
But gently piteous; none have said,
"Your pretty grandchild sloepcth so
We cannot wake hor;" but instead
Piling the cushions in her chair,
Carved in many a quaint design
Of leaves and lilies, nice and fine,
They tell her she must not despair
