- He gave me a knife one day at school,
Four bladed, the handle of pearl!
And great blek words on the wrapper said
"For the darlingest little girl,"
SI was glad 0 0 yes, yet the crimson blood
To my young eeek came and went,
And my heart thumped wondrously pit-a-pat,
But I dif'''know what it meant.
One night be said I must jump on is sled,
For the snow was falling fast;
I was half afraid, but he coaxed and coaxed,
And be got me on at last.
Laeghing and chatting in merry glee,
To my home hi; course he bent,
And my sisters looked at each other and smiled,
But I didn't know what it meant.
Thecyears pased on, and they touched his eye
With a shadow of deeper blue;
'Tey gavo to his form a manlier grace
To his eheek a swarthier gue.
We stood by the dreamly ripling brook,
When the day WaG almost spunt.
Iis whispers were soft as th lulasby I
And-now I know wshat le meant!
I love yuu-'tis the simplest way
- The thing I feel to tell;
Yet, if I told it all the day,
You'd never guess how well.."
You are my comfort and my light;
My very life you seem I
I think of you all day, all night
Tis but of you I dream.
There's pleasure in the lightest word
Tbao you can speak to me ;
My soul is Lke .le E.lian chord,
And vibrates sti ti thve.
I never rad a love-song yet,
Lo triafng, fond, or true,
- ut in my own heart I have met
Some kinder thought of you.
I bless the shadow on your face,
The light upon your hair I
I like, fur houis, to sit a'nd truce
The passing beauties there
I lve to henr your vvice's tone,
Although I ou shoivull nut say

And you art
Of happy 1.

A ToucHING INCIDE.-lhe saddest
story that we have ever read was that of a
'little child i) Switzerland, a pet boy, just as
yours is, reader, % hom his mother one b ight
morning rigged out in a beautiful jacket .alI
shining with gilt and buttons, and giy as a
mother's love could make it, and then per.
mitted him to go out to play. He had scarce
ly stepped from the door of thw "Swiss
Cottage," mlhen at) enormour eagle scooped
him from the earth and bore him to his nest,
high up amoug the mountains, and yet
within sight of the house of which he had
been the joy. There he was killed and de
voured, the uyrie-heing at a point which was
literally innecessible to man, so that no re
lief could be afforded. In tearing the child
to pieces, the eagle so placed his gay jacket
in the nest that it became a fixture there,
and whenever the w ind blew it would flutter,
and the sun would shine upon its lovely
triminigs and ornaments. For years it
was visible from the .lowlands, long after
the eagla 11d 4andoned the nest. What

to these principles and the compromises of

enongh to embrace and uphibld the Union
as it was, and the Union as it is-the Union

the side of their succes.ful example.
Second-Resolved, That our geographi.
fa and politicil position with reference to
the other States or this continent, no less
than the interests of our commerce and the
development of our growing piower, requires
that we hold to the sacred .principles involv
ed in the Monroe doctrine. Their aring
and import admit of no misconstruction,
and should ho applied with unbending
Thirdly-Resolved, That the great high.
way which nature as well as the assent of

its maintenance has marked out for free com
nunication between the Atlantic and the
Pacific Oceans, constitutes one of the most
inportant achievements to be realized by

)le energy of our peonple, and that result
hnuld be secured by a timely and efficient
xertion of the control which we have a

Yhose d'ominion it lies; and we can, under

FRANCE, IDEHARi(, AND TIRE UNITED STATES.
Among the oddlest odds and ends of diplo
matie intelligeuce bronght by the last steam
er, is one to the effect that the~ French gov
erniuent had' recently addressed ai very ener
gel ic, if not commanIlhding, note to the Danish
governmiient, insisting that the. latter show ai
comipliaint atnd ready spirit in seeing its (lit
ficulties; the object being to hinde.r a con
filet with North A merica. This is repiesen
ted as a direct effort oin the part of Louis
Napoleon to weaken tho great reliance ot
Deumark on England.
Tlhere can be iio question that France has,
by dint of sheer pishing, contrived to gain
a very deided toothold- in Denmark, andl
that she was first and loudest in ai~suring
Denmark of her support in the matter.
Frneh impers have abused America fair
moare than the English hamve done for our
interference in established E'uropreaminr mai.
timie customs, an~d the abhove statemenit rel-i
tice to the note would seemi extraOrdiniary
did we niot remember two things. Thle first
is, that since the. peace was concluded the
Anmglo.1 reneh alliaiice has virtually ceased
with it. TIhe second, and try far the most
important poiint is, that both France and
Englanid are at present desirL's ot putting
off a war with this country. T'hey desire
that it miay be postponed until disunioti shall
have made such headway among us that
they msy have bunt little ,to dread. A war
with Eng'larnd or France, eveni now, would
quench, certaiinly for a time, the tlamnes of
discord, unite the North and dihe South, and
restore political krarmony. Neither Fran~ce
nor Englatnd desire this, and they natu
rally wish to see a war postponed unitil odr
ridienlois strife on the slave qgiestiotn has got
us aill by the ears. TIhen Louis Napoleon
will let us hear from him. Till then he
comminend(s peace with the United States.
