IC you cannot CB th? ocean
Sail among the swiftest fleet ;
.. . Rocking on the highest billows,
- Langhing at tho storms you moot ; '
Yon cap stand among th'e sailors,
Anchored yet within the bay,
You can lend a hand to help them,
As they launch their .boats away.
If you are too weak to journey,
Up the mountains steep sud high,
You ean stand within tho valley,
"While tho multitudes go by ;
You can chant in happy UH asure,
As they slowly pass along,
. Though they may forget the singer,
They will not forget the song.
If you have net gold and silver,
Ever ready to command, .
If you cannot toward the needy
Reach an ever open band,
You can visit the a Bided,
O'er tho-erring you can weep,
You can be a truo disciple,
Sitting at the Saviour s feet.
If you cannot in the conflict
Prove yourself a soldier true,
If where fire and smoke are thickest,
There'd no work for you to do ;
When th? battle field is silent,
Yon can go with silent tread,
You can bear away the wounded,
You can cover up the deid.
Bo not thou stand idly waiting
Por some greater work to do;
Fortune is a lazy goddess,
She will never come to you ;
60 and toil in any vineyard,
Do not fear ta do or cure,
If you want a field of l.ib >r,
You can find it snywbore.
THE TIRED HOUSEKEEPER ;
OR, COUSIN MARY'S DREAM.
" There, thc last baby is asleep, and 1
hope I shall have a chtuce to breathe,'
exclaimed Mrs. Hewitt, throwing herseli
into an easy-chair beside the work table,
where her cousin sat reading. **No; I
have forgotten William's dres.sirig-g??wi.
and slippers." And the tired wile mst
with a sigh, and wearily brought these
comforts from the closet of an adjoining
room. A faint smile of pleasure stub
over her features as she wheeled her hus
band's chair around, plac d the .-dippers
just fight, and then ibu dressing-gown
gracefully across the chair. . %
" Please, ma'am, will you step here fl
miuit?" called Bridget, from the hall.
41 YVlsht shali we have lor breakfast,
please?" she asked, as Mrs. Hewitt close?.;
the parlor-door behind her.
The poor mistress was so wearied by
the cares of the day that she could nut.
just then, recall the contents of the larder ;
and a journey to the basement, and sun
dry orders to Bridget, consumed the next
quarter of an hour.
" Mamma, mamma. Minnie wants a
drink," called out a little voice from the
nursery, just as Mrs. Hewitt again opened
the parlor door.
"Oh, dear!" exclaimed Mrs. Hewitt.
" there is no rest for me." Yet she was a
tender mother; so she ascended the stairs,
gave the child a drink, soothed her to
sleep, carefully tucked the .bed clothe:
around all four of tho little sleepers, (the
elder but ten,) and descended noiselessly
tc the parlor.
The sight of her cousin scated in ar
nrm chair, by thc blazirg parlor grate,
book in hand, effectual ly destroyed the
feeling of happiness which a motherV
love was rousing in her heart; and Mrs
Hewitt wa3 not the happy wife and moth
er, but the mere domestic drudge, toiling
her life away for others, all unthanked.
Mrs. Carleton, the cousin guest, was a
few years older .than Mrs. Mewitt. She
was a widow, and childless. Her coun
tenance had an expression of deep sad
ness, when in repose: but a desire to
make others happy, and an abiding sense
of the unerring wisdom of her heavenly
Father, made her so habitually calm and
cheerful, that strangers little dreamed
how much sorrow she had known ; and
even friends were not aware of the effort
it sometime cost her to preserve a calm
exterior when some trivial circumstance
would touch one of the sect et springs ol
memory, and lift the floodgates of sorrow,
submerging the soul Jn grkT s bitter wa
ters. Like others, Mrs. Mewitt was de
ceived, and, unmindful of her own greater
blessings, almost envied her gentle cousin
her changeful life and abundant leisure
*. How do you like 'The land and the
Book,' cousin, dear ?" a-ked Mrs. Hewitt,
once more seating herself at the shaded
gaslight, while Mrs. Carleton raid aside
her book, and took up her knitting work'.
" William brought honte tho e volume
when it was first published, more than
three months ago, and I have not ye:
found time to read two chapters; but yt.wi
know overworked housekeepers have bo
time they can call their own ; I some
times feel that I am in a state of intellec
tual starvation. Our means are limited,
and we can*--keep but one servant ; so 1
most be nurse, governess, and chamber
maid, besides superintending the kitchen
affairs; and with a family nf four litil*
ones, I get completely wf ru out in bod)
and in mind, and as I look in upon you,
now and then, during the day, I almost
envy you the quiet lei ure you enjoy.
But I never have a moment for culture,
and probably never shall have ; it is toil,
toil, all day, and even the nights are full
of care."" Mrs. Hewjtt signed deeply,
while dark clouds of discontent and repi
mn g rested on her brow.
" You have a kind husband and a pleas
ant home, Emma," said Mr?. Carleton,
M Yes ; but I get so worn ont with care
and toil, that I sometimes think I will
coax William to board for a while, al
. least till I get rested," r< lied Mrs.
" Boarding would only bring you less
enjoyment and added aire," remarked
" Perhaps so. There i? no way for me
but to toil on till 1 die ; t*o I may as well
try to.be contented." And Mrs. Hewitt
sighed again, and bent her, head down
over her work, to hide the starting tears.
Mrs. Carleton was troubled. She ha?
been pained with frequent .expressions ot
repining and. discontent during the few
weeka. of her visit, and she feared that
Mrs. Hewitt was forming a habit which
would eventual ly destroy her. happiness,
tunl had' been prayerfully seeking to de*
y?seso^e/pl?n'.^slipw her cousin her er
ror, without giving offence. Only, one
remedy had suggested itself ; it was.a se
vere one,; but ski had resolved to try it.
" I have befen thinking a great deal
about you these few days, Emma." said
Mrs. J^arleto?j., gently ; fand today a
way*to relieve y'oli'froth' ?fltfirrB^-was:

Mrs. Hewitt, playfully.
"I have been a wife and mother," st
Mrs. Carleton, "and know all the dillie

ly with your feelings of despondenc
and to-day, as I sat herc in your pleass
parlor, while you were trying to get t
baby to sleep, and Charley's little f(

Mrs. Hewitt, bursting into tears. M Don

ind resolutely. .

Mrs Hewitt's convulsive weeping hs
gradually subsided into deep sobs befui
Mrs. Carleton finished her narration, an
she now sat looking like one who had n
ally been bereaved.
Mrs. Carleton raised the bowed hem
