I'VE E2EN THINKING.
I've been thinking, I've been thinking
What a glorious world were this,
Did folks mind their business more,
And mind their neighbors less.!
For instance you and I, my friend,
Are sadly prone to talk
Of matters that concern us not,
And others' follies mock.
I've been thinking, if we'd begin
To mend our own affairs,
That possibly our neighbors might
Contrive to manage theirs.
We've faults enough at home to mend
It may lie so with others;
It would seem strange If it wcro not,
Since ail mankind were brothers.
Oh! would that we had charity,
For every man and woman,
Forgiveness is the mark of those
Who know " to err is human."
Then let us banish jealousy
Let's lift our fallen brother,
And as we Journey down life's road,
" JX good to one another."
She who thinks a noble heart
Hetter than a noble mien ;
Honors virtue more than art,
Though 'tis less In fashion seen;
Whatso'cr her fortune be,
She's the bride the wife for me
She who deems that inward grace
Far surpasses outward show;
She who values less the face
Than that charm the soul can throw;
Whatso'cr her fortune be,
She's the bride the wife for me.
She who knows the heart requires
Something more than lips of dew;
That when love's brief rose expires
hove itself dies with it too
Whatso'cr her fortune be,
She's the bride the wife for me.

A BKAYE GIRL.
A Tale of the French licvolntion.
DURING the " Reign of Terror" in
France there were .many deeds of
dariiifr performed, even by women, and
many examples of affection exhibited.
The very streets of Paris were deluged
with human blood, but near the guillo
tine it ran in torrents. One dark morn
ing an unusual number of the aristocracy
had been marched forth, and countless
heads tolled from the block. A gaping
multitude stood by, and with shouts rent
the air as the aristocracy were thus
Among the assembled multitude, that
dreary morning, were two females. Oue
of them was plainly clad, while a cloak
was thrown around Iter, with which she
kept her features nearly concealed. The
face of the woman was very beautiful,
and she was young certainly not more
than sixteen years of age.
The other female was quite different in
character. Her face was fair, but there
was a brazen expression about it. She
was clad in rags, and as each head fell
she would dunce, and in various ways ex
press her delight.
The tirst female watched this creature
for a few moments, and then pressingher
hand to her side, she laid her hand upon
the shoulder cf the wretch, and whispcr
" Would you like to become rich at
The femalo in rags turned about withe
look of surprise, burst in a loud lau"h,
and then replied :
" Of course I would."
" Follow mo and you shall be."
" Enough ; lead on."
It was with considerable difficulty that
the females extricated themselves from
the crowd ; but they did so nt length,
and then the first femalo asked oftlio
" What shall I call you ?"
" Oh ! I am called the Beggar-Girl
" You live by begging ?"
" Yes ; but what's your name, and what
do you want ?" Her only answer was,
" Are you well kuown in Paris 1"
" Yes. Everybody knows Maria, the
" Aro you known to Robespierre ?" If
so, I want to make a bargain witlryou."
" I am. What do you wish '("
" You tee my clothing is better than
your own, and I wish to .exchange with
you. I want you to consent to remain
here, and not to show yourself at all for
a short time, or until I come to you again.
As a recompense for aiding me I will give
you a thousand francs, and when I come
back I will give you a thousand more.
As security lor my return take this ring."
The lady drew a diamond ring from
her finger, and gave it to the beggar girl.
Then handing her a purse of gold. The
girl appeared a little puzzled and asked:
" Well, what aro you going to do with
" I want to put it on, and go where I
first met you."'
" Oil, I understand now. You want
to see the chopping go on, and you arc
afraid that you will be taken for an aris
tocrat if you wear that dress. You want
to represent me !"
" Yes. I want to look as near like
you as possible."
" Well, that won't be difficult. Your
hair and eyes, nnd even your mouth is
like mine. Your face is too white, though.
But you can alter that with a little dirt."
They exchanged dresses, and soon the
young, rich aud noble .Marie do .Nantes
was a sad one. Ilcr lather and two broth
ers had fallen victims to the remorseless
tiends of the Revolution, and a third aud
last brother had been seized. But of
his fate she was ignorant, although she
expected that it would be similar to that
of her other relatives. lie had been
torn from her side but a few hours before.
After the exchange had been made the
pauper looked on the stock ingless and
shoeless feet aud ankles of the lady, aud
" That will never do. Your feet are
too white and delicate. Let mo arrange
In a few moments Maria was prepared,
aud in the filth and rags she emerged in
to. the street. She now took her course
back towards the guillotine and at length
reached the square where the bloody
work was still going on. Gradually she
forced her way through the crowd, aud
nearer and nearer she came to the scaf
fold. She even forced a laugh at sever
al remarks she heard around her, but
those laughs sounded strangely. She
now stood within the platform, and swept
it with, her eyes but her brother was not
there. The cry was now raised :
i; Hero comes another batch."
Her heart fluttered violently and she
felt a faintness came over her as she heard
the tramp of the doomed men approach
ing. Her brother walked proud and
fearlessly forward, and ascending the very
steps that led to the block. Up to this
moment the strength of poor Maria had
failed her, and she was unable to put her
resolve into execution. But now a sis
ter's love swelled up in her heart, and she
recovered her strength. She sprang for
ward, bursting through the line of guards
and ran up the steps. Grasping her
brother by the hand, she cried :
" What does this mean ? It is only the
aristocrats that are to die."
" Away, woman," escluiucd one of the
" No j I will not away until you tell me
why my brother is thus bound."
" Yonr brother," was the echo.
' Well, who are you ?"
,; I am Maria; don't you ' know ine?"
" The beggar-girl '("
- But this is not your brother-"
" It is. Ask him ask him."
Young Antonio de Nantes had turned a
scornful gazo upon the maiden, but a
light crossed his face, and murmured :
" Oh, my sister !"
"Is this your brother?" asked Rober
pierre of the supposed beggar, advancing
" It it;."
" Does Maria speak the truth ?" asked
" She docs," was the brother's reply.
" I tell you I am her brother."
" Why did you not tell us of this be
" I attempted to speak, but was tilcnc
cd." " But you might have declared your
self." " You would not have believed me !"
"But your dress?',
"I belonged to an at istocrat. Per
haps to him for whom I was taken."
Roberpierro advanced closo to young
Nantes, and gazed earnestly into his
face, theu ho approached Maria, and
looked steadly in her eyes for a short
time. It'Wasa moment of trial for the
poor girl. Sho trembled in spite of all
l3r ellbrte to bo calm. She almost felt
that sho was lost, when the human fiend,
whose word was law, turned aud said :
" Relcftso the man."
'The ctains wero instantly removed'
and Antonio do Nantes walked down
from the scaffold, followed by his sister,
while shouts rent the air, for they sup
posed he was a commoner who had thus
The young man worked his way
through the crowd as rapidly as possible
leading Maria. They scarcely escaped
it before the poor girl fainted from the
intensity of her feelings. The brother
scarcely knew what to" do, but a hand
was laid upon his arm, aud a voice
" Bring her to. my room again. Sho
will be safe there."
The brother conveyed her to the apart
ment of the pauper, and asked of her:
" Have you seen the female before?"
" Yes. I know all about it," returned
the pauper. She borrowed my clothes
to save her brother. She has done it aud
I am glad."
Before the noble sister returned to
consciousness the brother had learned all.
They both snught more secure quarters,
after rewarding the beggar-girl, as prom
ised. ; Do you think Robespierre was really
deceived ?" asked Maria de Nantes.
(i I think not," returned the brother.
" Then why did he order your release ?"
" lie saw your plan. He admired your
courage. Could a fiend have done less?"
" Perhaps this w.as the case, but if so,
it was a deed of mercy, and the only oue
that man ever did."
I'll Take Care of the Cats.
TOT long sincj there lived in Man-
Chester. New York, an aired rem
nant of a bankrupt stock of mortgaged
chatties, who consoled himself in the
loss of his family and property, by consti
tuting himself one of the invited drink
ers who hang around the bar of a coun
try grocery store, Old Jake B was a
curious chap, ever ready to take or re
ceive a joke. and particularly fond of " do
ing" the boys old fellows of sixty,
nod making them 'victims of circum
stances.' Well, in the course of human
events, this octogenarian shuffled off his
mortal coil. Jn due time the se::ton was
summoned. He came, looked puzzled,
stood awhile, .and weut away. Shortly
after he returned with a board and rope,
looked puzzled, stood around a few mo
ments with his hands in his pockets, aud
his hat cocked oa his left ear. How
should he straighten' the body so that it
would make a respectable appearance ?
This was a poser ! After scratching his
head, and resorting lo more than usual
debate in his own mind, he hit upon the
expedient of tying his feet down to the
board, taking the ' kinks' out of the body
and binding the rope around the head.
This would keep him straight aud make
the job satisfactory to the mourning rela
tives. Having accomplished the 'laying
out,' he engaged an old retainer by the
name of Joe Smith to do the 'sitting up,'
and departed. About midnight Joe want
ed to smoke, and so vacated the room for
a few minutes. Upon bis return, he dis
covered that two cats had stolen in when
he stole out. One was perched upon the
feet and the other upon the head of the
defunct, aud both were howlingly pitc
ously. There was no time for foolin'. He
clutched the chair and went at them.
The first intruder wuh knocked through
the window, but his blow at the second
was not so fortunate; instead of hitting
Thomas, he hit the rope, and knocked it
out of shape, wherupon the corpse rose
up into a sitting posture. This suddeu
and somewhat belligerent altitude of the
watcher's friend didn't frighten hiuu in
the least. He was equal to any of the
old man's jokes, and thinking this was
one of them, and being determined not
to bo fooled lie bawled out: "Darn ye,
old man, lay dowu, aud I'll attend to the

" One dollar," was the reply.
"Well continued the doctor, "just

The Hexton was even with hin t, how

having ins commenced business, aud do-

But Mr. Lawrence liked the appearance
of the young man, ar.ti finally told him
that he would let him Iiavt what goods
he could pay for at the cost of manufac
ture about ten per cent, less than the
regular wholesale price. The- bill was
made out and paid, and the- clerk asked,

I am not ashamed to carry anything
which I honestly posess, nor am I ashamed
of the strength which enables me to bear
the heavy burden."
Thus speaking he shouldered a large
bundle, and had turned towards the outer
door, when Mr. Lawrence, who from his
office, had overheard the conversation,
called him back.
" Mr. Parks, I have concluded to Ice.

The young man was surprised.
" You have the true pride for a suc

"and I shall be much disappointed if you

Amos Lawrence was not disappointed

Diy There is dew ia one flower anil
