I ask one little boon
Of the New Year:
May I through all its days
Carry someo cheer
To thi;se who sit in gloom,
Weeping Cor loss;
To hearts that slowly break
Under a cross.

With note to care;
I who have Wept alone,
Wottrl ghtlly sweeten lives,
And make then lear
This little boon I ask
Of the New Year.
They best can serve the gods
Their erranis run,
Who call no love their own,
Under the situ.

And hope to fear:

There is not the slightest doubt

The morning was unusually pleas

Dobbs was not, in tile common

.AN ALABAMA IE0OME IhOUSE.
After a quick ride of three or
four miles through the prairie, says
a correspondent of the Newv York
Times, we reached a small collec
tioni of log cabins which surround
ed an impliosing but dilapidated
looking structure enclosed with a
fence wvhich had fallen down in
many places. The garden in front
of the houses. was overgrown wvith
-weeds, through which a rare flower
occasionally forced its wvay. Clus
tering rose vines clung to the
moldering pillars wvhich supported
thme broad balcony of the house;
pointers. and deer..hounds ran un
molested through boxwood hedges
that must onice have been kept with
i scrupuilous neatness, and funny
looking little black boys and girls
tramped at wvill .through the orange
Sgroves which flanked the dwelling.
This,. Dr. Armstead informed me,
had once been the "home house" of
one of -thme richest planters of the
South. Since the war the seasons
had been badl, the crops5 had
failed, and the house wvas occu
picd by an overseer wvho had charge
of the estate. This I afterwvard dis
covered consisted of no less than
eleven thousand acres of rich land,
which, on account of the change
of labor and other causes, wvas now
for the most p)art lying waste and
Suncultivated. Entoring the house
a novel sene presented itself. We
were met at the door by Mr. Car
ter, the overseer', who had been
expecting uis, and wvere at once con
ductedi through a large hallway into
a wainscoted apartments in whieh
three bedsteads were standing.~
They were groat, massive pk.eces of
furniture, made of the finest mahog
any, and having four immense posts
of polished wood. These support
ed a canopy of. .light carved oak,
which, though old and worm eaten,
gave.evidence of beauty and . artis
a tie taste. The fine feather beds
were covered with a promiscuous
assortspont of torniarmy blankets
atid . n linen sheets. Oh the

as striking. In one corner a rude I
pie table bore a cracked water-jar
and basin, a huge lump of common
browi soap, and at torn, rough towel.
This completed the toilet appara t
tus. A great firo of oak logs was 1
):1rn1ing in a iammi noth fire )1 place, 10
and round this a num1ber of broken
down chairs and stools woro placed. 1
While waitir:g for supper our party t

was far from being in keeping with ,
their rough appearance. The man
with the torn hat wKs familiar with
three or four languqges, had travel

easily of his former acquaintanve I
with French counts and German
arons. He of the boots and trou- C

so:ithern farmer, wah iot long in t:

Lhe so-called "best-circles" of North- 1
arn cities. All the gentlemen pres- e
mit had before the war been rich a

verseor conducted us through the n

lence of having once been magnifi- l

two thousand raro and -valuable b

spoak plainly of "tho days that are 1

WORK A BLESSING. e
Many young men have fathers c
that are well off and they have no
ambition,and no particular prospect. r
They scorn a trade. A man that is i
too woll-born for a trade is very well I
born for a gallows! Thousands of
parents, who, by industry, have
gained a position which enables ,
them to destroy their chlildr'en, take a
the surest means of accomp~lishling t
their destruction by encouraging
them in idleness, and allowing t
them as they grow up to feel that c
it is disg-raceful to wvork at whlatev- c
or' manual labor best suits his tal- t
cnts, no matter wvhether his father t
is a mminter, 01' a lawyer, 01r if sen.
ator, or the President of the United e
States. Many young men are look- 1
ing forwar.d upon life with the gen. c
eral idea that they aro going to en
joy themselves. They are lprovided c
with all needful p)hysicatl comforts, r
andl they mean to be happy. They I
have no tr-ade. They slight their 'J
p)rofession. Their whlole governing I
principle in life is to shirk anythling
like work ; and they expect to have y
enjoymnent without industry. But f
no man in this world will be hlappy c
wvho violatos the fundamental lawv I
of industry. You must work if you
are going to be ahaippy nman. I knowv a
you think it is hard ; but if God badr
meant that you should be a butter- t
fly, you would be born a butterfly.
And as you were not born a moth
or a miller, hut a mani, you must ac- I
cept the conditions of your man
hood. And if there is one pr-inciple
that is more impiIortanit at the very a
thIreshiold of life than another-, it is.
that man is born to wor-k.

read the followintg p)aragr'aph ini a

you find a1 swvooter p)ot, tihan our
home deibo'i) it to me, atnd I willI
irival it if I die in the attempt. A
kiss and a fewv tears completed the
victory.' This lady tried the game
on her husband. Ho wasn't molited
a bit ; lhe meirely said, "When you
cant got the boy3s to COmtO here and
a inokCecigaris and talk politics, and
yFou set up a keg of lager, you can
count me mi. I like the compjanly
of the boys. I do." Ouir lady saw
thalt sentiment had no effect on
him. So she didn't throw horself
on his nook and hug and wet his
paper collar with tears; but siho
took a saucer and fired it at his
head, and followed it up with a cup,
and ended by slinginig a dish of
strawberries on his shirt bosom.
Since that time ho has been a;n ex..

her dear mother as often as four or
