THE GARDEN GATE.
"Stand back, bewildered politics I
]'ve placed my fences round;
Pass on, with all your party trieks,
Nor tread my holy ground.
Stand back-Im weary of your talk,
Tour squabbles, and your hate ;
You cannot enter in this walk
I've elosed my garden gate.
"Stand hack, ye thoughts of trade and pelfi
I have a refuge here ;
I wish to commune with myself
My mind is out of gear.
These bowers are sacred to the page
Of pliilosophic lore;
Within these bounds no envies rage
Fve shut my garden door.
" Stand back, Frivolity and Show,
It is a day of Spring;
I want to see my roses blow,
And hear the baekbird sing.
I wish to prune my apple trees,
And nail my peaches straight;
Keep to the causeway, if you please
I've shut my garden gate.
"I have no room fop such as you
Uy house is somewhat small;
Let Love come here, and Friendship true,
I'll give them welcome all:
They will not scorn my household stuff,
Or citicize my store,
Pass on-the world is wide enough
I've shut my garden door.
"-Stand back,- ye Pomps !. and let me wear
The liberty I feeli
I have a coat at elbows bare
I love its disha6ilic.
Within these precincts let me rove,
With Nature, free from state;
Thiere is no tinsel in the grove
I'e shut my garden gate.
"What boots continual glare and strife ?
I cannot always elimb
I would not struggle all my life
I need a broathing time.
Pass on-I've sanctified these grounds
To friendship, love and lore:
Ye cannot come within the bounds
I've shut the gard'en door."
SELLING CHIKENS TO THE LEGISLATURE.
While the Legislature of Missouri was in
session, a few years ago, a green fellow
from the country came to Jefferson to sell
some chickens. He had about two. dozen,.
all of which he had tied by he legs to a
string, and this, being divided equally, and
thrown across his horse or his shoulder,
frnied lie mode of conveyance, leaving the
fovls wkh ittle else of them visible except
their naked legs-. and a promiscuous pile of
out-stretched wings and ruffled feathers.
After several ineffectual efforts to dispose of
his load, a wag, to whom he made an offer
of sale, told him that he did not want chick
ens himself, but that perhaps he could sell
them at that large stone house over there
(4he Capitol) that there wvas a man over
there buy'mg, on speculation, for the St.'
Louis market, and no doubt he could find a

of~ the room, and is nowv engaged with a
number of fellows buying chickens. If a
man at the door should stop you don't mind
him. He has got chickens himself for sale,
and tries to prevent other people from selling
theirs. Don't mind him, but go right ahead."
Following the directions, our friend soon
frundi Irimsell at the door of the Hall of
Representatives. To open it and enter was
the wvork of a moment. Taking from his
shoulder the string of chickens, amnd giving
them a shake, to freshen them, he commnen

about half down- the aisle, when he w'as

fowls until their music made the walls echo.
"Let me go, sir, (to the doorkeeper) let

" Where's the Sergeant-at-arms," roared
the Speaker-" take that man out."

to.day, anyhowv. I say you sir up there-"
Here the voice was lost by the closing of
the door. An: adjournment was moved, and
earried, and the members, almost frantic
'with mirth, rushed out to find our friend in
high altercation with the doorkeeper abcwut
the meanness of selling his owvn chickens
that "if he courd just see that man up there
by himself he'd be bound they could make
a- trade, and that no, man could afford to
raise chickens for less than six bits."
The members bought his fowls by a pony,

When the figs are fully ripe, (but no'

"It is seldom we permit ourselves to occupy a

the life of a fellow creatre saved by the tie of any

not our duty, to give a simple sitemenit of facts,
that others imay. in like manner, be henefitted. Tie
case which has indmed us to pen this article was th-si
of a young lady of our ncquaintance, wItio by frequent
expesure to the night air. contmracted a Cold which
ettled on the Lungs before its ravages could be
