Beside a prattling, silver etroam
"A blushin gtrild-flower stood;
Ea'cli sunny morn it sweetly smiled, -And
donned its gayest hood.
When man approached 171th eager hand
Tho streamlet's wealth to find,
The flower was torn from where it grow
And rudely cast bohind.
It chancad to fall upon tho tido,
That followed fast and free ;
And floated on while tossed about '
Upon its. littlo sea.
It journeyed on until at length
It fell upon th shore ;
Its seed took root and thero it grow
As swetly as beforo,
Hw liko this littlo flower, is lifo
When wo aro torn from homo,
From all our childhood loved at heart,
' In straugir lands to roam.
But man his deitiny must bide,
And each his load must bear,
And for tho changing tides of timo
With cherfulnes3 prepare.
If wo retain that godly lore
That hop to mtrtals gi.voa
Our perils past, 'twill root at last,
And sweetly bloom in heaven.

XFrom tho N . Y. Day.Book.
The Siamese Twins are fairly eclipsed by a
new. novelty that has been introduced to tho
public. This immense curiosity attended ' the
great jubilee at Boston, or rather was a frido
attraction to tho great event, and is thus des
cribed by the Boston Fopt
This most remarkable human being, as
above quoted from tho handbill, is Miss Chris
tine Millie, a young lady of, AfA" color and
lineament, -who holds leeves at t,ho Mcionaon.
We say she, for brevity; for thero ar,e two of
her in most respects two heads, Recks, busts,
two pairs of arnis, shoulders and legs, and but
one waist. As the exhibitor says in the brief
addreES which ho delivers thrice hourly, you
pay call her eho or they, but he ha3 always
called her the wonderful two-headed girl, and
thinks ho shall always dp so. Miss Christine
Millie is evidently of pur.e negro blood, her
skin dark, her lips full and prptyidiug her noses
broad aud her foreheads low. Y,et there is an
intelligent cast to her countenance which
would have led to her classification, as a smart
nigger on tho auction block of her North Caro
lina hom.e ten years ago. Indeed, it is said
that in th,g. balmy days of her childhood and
slavery, $80,000 was her price; bt, this was
her valuation as.a rare specimen of deformity,
rather than herriptrinsic worth. She id of short
stature, one of, her being somewhat shorter
,than the other, though the difference is hardly
noticeable. Her arms are long, as also her
hands, her fingers possessing that slender for
mation and those little movements which
seemed to indicatq.an aptitude for manipulate
ing purronny. Herhajr is glossy, suggestively
so, and though tqmparativeljr straight where it
tscapes from the gofisiiialur "meek
velvet and jewelry w)iicK encircles, her heads,
falls about her eioulders in close ringlets.
Which head answers to Christine and which to
Millie is not ascertainable, although there is a
difference in the facea. One is bright, laugh
ing and always wearing a pleasant expression ;
the other Kett'lcsl when at rest, into a look of
morose or sileut 'discontent. The happy face
sells her photographs, the other dispenses bi
ographies. Both sets of nimble fingers take
the money, and the long arms mako change
for each otlxer across the common waist, Mil
lie's side giving Christine's five half dirar-s for
a scrip, quarter, and Christine half returning
the five without grumbling the next 2mute.
