Lecture from Mrs. Brown.
Why don't you take the paper Brown?
I'm sure it is a sin, a shame,
That we can't get the news from town.
Before it's old and tame? -
There's Deacon Jones across the way,
Who gets one every week,
AnJ he Can beat yoo all they say,
When called upon to speak.
The reason, rir, is plain you know,
For when he reads it through,
- Iis words like milk and honey flow,
And all he tells is new;
So he is taken by the hand
For what he can impart ;
While old and young around him stand,
And say the Deacon's smart.
Oh is it not a shame l say,
To hug your purse so tight,
When a mere bit of clay
Would set the matter right ?
What good is gold, bow can you tell,
To any of our kind,
Unless it keeps the body well
And benefits the mind?
Why don't you take the papers, Brown?
I'm sure It is a shnmc,
That we cant get the news from town
Before it's old and tame!.
Now let as quit at once this way,
- And take a worthy start,
And ere a year our friends will say,
'The Browns are getting smart."
From the Temperance Advocate.
t BY Ms. M. S.B. DANA.
" Sparkling and bright in its liquid light.
Is the water in our glasses;
'Twill give you health,'twil! give you wealth,
Ye lads and rosy lasses.
Oh! then resign your ruby wine,
Each smiling son and daughter ;
There's nothing so good for the youthful
Or sweet as the sparkling water.
Better than gold is the water cold,
From the chrystal fountains flowing;
A calm delight, both day and night,
To happy hotnes bestowing.
" C Oh then resign, &c.
Sorrow has fled from the heart that bled,
Of the weeping wife and mother;
They've given up the poiseued cup,
Son, husband, father, brother.
Oh! then resign, &c.
A WIFE IN TRoUBLE.-Pray tell
me, my dear, what is the cause of those
'Oh such a disgrace!'
'What--what is it, my dear ? Do
not keep me in -suspence.'
Why, I have opened o'ne of your let
ters, supposing it addressed to myself.
Certainly it looked more like Mrs. than
'Is that all? What harm can there
be in a wife's opening her husband's
."No harm in the tihing itself. But
ihe contents! Such a disgrace !'
'What has any one dared to write me
letter unfit to bo read by my wife?'
'Oh, no. It is couched in the most
chaste and gentlemanly language. But
the contentsi the contents !
Here the wife buried her face in her
handkerchief and 6mmenced sobbing
aloud, whaile the husband eagerly caught
up the letter and commenced reading
the epistle that bud been the means of
nearly breaking his wife's heart. It
wa~s a bill from thre printer for nine
year's subscript ion.
Tus RIGHT SPRtNG.-A lady brought
a child to a physician in Utica, to con
sult about its precarious health. Amiong
other things site itquired if he did not
think the springs wotuld be useful ?
''Cerlainly, madam," replied the doc,
tor, as he eyed the child and he took
a pinch of snull. "I havn't the least
hesitation in recommending the sprinigs
* and the sooner you apply the remedy
'You really thin~k it would be good
for the dear little thing, don't you ?"
UIpon my word it is the best reme
dy I know of."
"What springs would you recommend
-'Any will do, madam, where you can
-get plenty of eoap and water."
An OCCURRENCE IN ONE OF OUR COM
MON ScHooLs. -The teacher, a yotung
lady, put the question to her scbolars,
' Who made you ?" TIhe oldest boy in
the school could not tell, neither cotuld
any of the scholars, ti!l she questioned
the smallest and yojrngest urchin in
school. He answered promptly that
God made him. Tihe teacher turning
to. the oldest boy said,' are you not
ashamed not to know what this little fel,

' He,' replied the' ig,'un,' ' Thun

I would merely remark, in the language
of the poet, thatt to him truth is strange,
. AN EDITOR DINING (UT.
Quite aydistinguished citizen of our
city,- and-one of the members of the
corps editorial, made a short excursion
into the.ohntry, where they revelled
some hoierJamong the breezes, and
treezes, and finally returned at four
o'clock,-wiih appetites, it may easily be
imagined,.nicely sharpened for the en
joyment of a 'good dinner. After im
bibinga gliss of wine bitters, at St.
Charles,- out friend of the scissors and
quill was invited to join him in a quiet
dinner of his own domicil.
" I have nothing nice," said he, "for
I didn't chink we should reach home in
time to dine, but I reckon I can make
up something that will answer the de
mands of hunger for the nonce."
" Oh, I'm not particular," replied
the editor, "anything will answer my
purpose.-I'm one of those, you know,
whose wants are verygeasily supplied."
Shortening the way, by easy and fatmi
liar chat, they reach the gentleman's
dwelling, and at the summons of a bell,
a favorite female servant came to the
door, with her shining ebony face wreath
ed gaily in smiles. Whispering a few
words in her master's ears, almost as
soon as he had crossed the threshold, he
" You don't say so ! What are they?"
Now, the editor, though by no means
hard of hearing, did not quite distinctly
understand the reply, for the reason that
he did not wish to listen to what appear
ed to be a private colloquy. He thought,
however, that the remainder of the con
versation was about as follows:
A fine pair of ducks," said the ser
"You don't say so," said the host.
" Well, now, I am satisfied. Who
would havo thought that. Go into the
parlor," said ho to his guest, " I'll join
you there in about five minutes."
The editorial gentleman quietly wen
ded his way alone to the parlor, wonder
ing in his own mind why such unusual
disturbance about the dinner should be
made, in a house where everything was
generally conducted in tho most simple
and unostentatious manner passible; but
nevertheless, secretly felicitating himself
upon the fact that the dinner hte was to
enjoy was far more inviting that it had
been represented. Five, ten, fifteen
minutes had elapsed, and his host did
present himself; he fumbled over the
pictures and books on the table, playing
awhile with the poodle dog, which was
taking a nap on the sofa, half whistled a
tune or two, hummed the fraction of a
psalm, and was finally found gazing on
a painting of Mary Magdalene, to dis
cover new beauties, when his enter tamer
made his appearance, just exactly the
happiest looking man the editor had
ever stun,bled upon;
"Excuse my detaining you," said lie,
"but you heard what Betty said in the
"Oh, yes," replied the editor.
"A pair of 'em, by .Jove !"
."So I understood her to say."
"And a fiuer pair I never saw,
though I say it who should not; .as
plutmp, as fair and as bright as any I
ever laid my eyes ott: come join me in
Adjourning to the sideboard, they
filled their glasses,; the editor gave:
" Here's to them."
"Good !" said the host, " here's to
The 'editor was slightly astonishted,
for his friend's way of regoicing over
the (lucks was quite singular-he tossed
off his wine and commenced promnena
ding the room, tubbing his hands,
chuckling, and occasionally giving vent
to a gula w.
" A pair-wh~o'd have thought it, and
all doing so nicely too !" was his excla
'qIow are you having them fixed ?"
inquired his visiter.
"Ahi, I leave that to the women of
course, I don't meddle with that bu,
" But it's a pit ty, considering they
are so very fine, that you havn't another
friend to dino with you !"
" Pardon me, I forgot, I am compell
ed to ask you to go somewvhere else for

" To dine somewhere else ! You sec
all is in confusion, the servants are all
as tusy as bees, it was so unexpected
in fact, I didn't think it avould come off
for a week."
" Come off, what do you mean ?

" And what the devil is the affair up
"Why I thought you beard wvhat the

" So I did-shte said you had a fine
