TEE HOURS OF LONG AGOP.&.
BY NELLY NETTL.
I am thinking of the olen hours.
The hours of long ago,
When I was happy as a bird,
And liko the bounding roe
I ski. uni@ aulong through life,
y heart was full of song;
I little thought of care or strife,
As thise hours passed along.
The olden hours, the golden hours,
Tue hours of long ago,
I little thought of earo or strife,
In hours of long ago.
But then I knew what 'twas to have
My parents by my side,
And loving brothers, good and true,
A sister, dear, boside. -
But they have gone and left me, now,
They .said I soon should go;
They wont bff with the pleasant hours,
'Tie hours of long ago.
The olden hours, the golden hours,
The hours of long ago;
They went off with the pleasant hours,
The hours of long ago.
I sit akeno in the starlight now,
Sweet :tarlight, soft and clear,
I'm listening, the accustomed tale
Or pleasant song to hear;
And as I list, but hear them not,
My nietaory will flow
Back to those Il!easant, happy houre,
The hours of long ago.
The olden hours, the golden hours,
The hours of long.aT
Back to those pleasant;'happy hours,
The hours of lung ago.

IQW JOHN SWORE FOR BETTY.
The law of the State of Virginia prohibits
marriage unless the parties are of lawful age,
or by the consent of the parent.
John N-, a well-to-do-farmer, in the
Valley of Virginia, was blessed with every com
fort. except that desideratun--a wife. John
cast-his eyes around, but unsuccessfully, until
they fell upon the form of Betty-daughter of
John Jon s, one of the prettiest and nicest girl
in'the whole country. After a courtship of six
weelis, J'ohin was rendered happy by the con
sent of the fair Betty.
Th'e next day John, with a friend, went to
town to get the necessary donuments, with the
forms of procuring which he was most lamenta
bly ignorant. Beiftg directed to the clerk's
oflice, John with a azood deil of L -itation in
formed the urbane Mr. Brown that !. was goin-;
to get married to Betty Jones, an! wanted to
know what he must do to conpaa& that desira
ble coisummation. Mr. Brown in a bland sile
informed hiin, that after beiTg satisfied that no
legal impediment prevented, he w.uld grant a

Mr. N- ?"1
"Yes," said John.
"Do you solemnly swear that Betty Jones,
Ite Legislature of Virginia,) to take the mar
riage vow ?"
" What's that ?" said John.
Mr. B. repeated.
"Well," said John, "Mr. Cler. I want td

revival, and I wouldi't swear for a hundred
