When she undid her hair at night,
About the time for lying down,,
She came and knelt, I was so small
There in my bed, her curls did fall
All over me, light, gold and brown.
I fell asleep amid her prayers,
Her fair, young face, (far off it seems,)
Her girlish voice, her kisses sweet,
The patter of her pretty feet,
Passed with me into charming dreams.
And when I woke at merry morn,
Through her gold hair I saw the sun
Flame strong, shine glad 4pd glorify
The great, good world. Oh, never can I
Forget the words-"My darling one ?"
Ab! checkered years since then have crept
Past her and me, and we have known
Some sorry and much tempered joy,
Far into manhood stands her boy,
And her gold hair snow-white is blown.
The world has changed by slow degrees,
And is o14 days recede alas!
So much of trouble have the new,
Those rare, far joys grow dim, seen through
Sad times, as through a darkened glass.
But jtistihis morning wheJ Woke,
HowJovingly my lips were kissed,
jow chaste and clear the sunlight shone
On mother's.hair, like gold dust sown,
Athwart thin clouds of silver mist.

Fear of the wild beasts pre

at borne, though, in fact, neither
bear nor pant hdr were ever known
to ap)proach a house, and wolves
only in case of extreme hunger.
After living in the mountains
for a few years, tbe Jansens be
came convinced that there was no
danger, and grew more careless.
They frequently were absent in the
fildl all day, leaving Peter and
Greta alone. in the house. But
they took care never to let the
night fall before their return.
The summer of 1850 wvas a hard
oneO in that desolate region for
man and beast. Crops of all kinds,
even mast, failed.
As the fall passed and winter
approached, the deer actually came
near the cabin in midday, driven
by hunger. Rumors came from the
far-off farms that the wol-es,
gaunt and hunger-bitten, had at
taked the cattle in the barns.
In early December, Jan was
sent to John Supplee, a farmer
'living about 'ten miles down the
range. Supplee had fallen and
broken his leg, and Jan, who had
a gogi deal of medical skill, was
the only person who could band

quietly at work in building a

was already shut. Greta drew the

The next moment, the whole

rushed to that s'de of the house.

and again the boy fired, his sister
loading the guns for him. But
they were too slow. One great

Greta, gone mad with terror, as

He stood in the trap-door, dealing
blow after blow with his gun..
They had,. left the powdere and

was going; the open-moiutbed
beasts were endeavoring, by means
of the ladder, to leap into the
loft. He looked at Greta, who
was kneeling before her box,
taking out her gilt-clasped Bible.

FOR THE HERALD.
BROADBRIM'S -PARIS LET
The United States Department.
In my last letter I spoke of the
daring of American manufacturers,
and this clear grit and pluck is con
fined to no particular branch. A
turbaned Turk, or an Israelite with
a fez, which makes him look like a
second-rate Turk, drives a thriving
business selling .olive wood orna
mehts from Jerusalem.; his success
excites the capidity of the Yankee,
who forthwith gets rip a compound a
great deal better than the original
olive wood. He invents a machine
for the- manufacture of the goods,
and the native of New Jerusalem is
either forced to copmit stiici4e in
elf-defence or 'iek other and
greener pastures. One would have
supposed. that Brother Jonathah
would have let Jean ; Crapaud
alone on the article of* perftmes,
but lere is a gentleman not
from New York, not from BoS
ton, not from Chicago or Sai
Francisco, but from Toledo,-0hio,
who, exhibits a case of perfumes
which would do n. diacredit to
Parip cw Cologne. Not only are
the -peilumes -fine, but the style of
putting them up is equal to any in
the Expositionm and this fact has
called forth a. commendation not
accorded in many cases to much
more important articles; well done,
Toledo, well done, Lorenta.
.: a modest case, on one of the
side aisles, is a beautiful display
of sleighbells by the Beacon Man
ufacturing Co., of East Hampton,
Conn. The sweet sleigh bel, the
merry, sleigh bells, the sight of
them recalling the happy crowds
and the jolly rides, away in the
long, long ago ! Who ever felt the
frost, who knew it was cold, as yo7u
dashed along through the flying
snow to the music of those merry
sleigh bells ! I saw one of our sol
dier boys looking mournfully into
the case; perhaps he, too, was
thinking of the jolly rides, and the
girl he left behind him.
An admirable exhibit is that of
the Northfield Knife Co., of North
field, Connecticut. Connecticut has
long been celebrated for its cutlery,
and I very much regret that many
more of its manufacturers have not
taken the trouble to exhibit, but
the Northfield Knife Company has
saved the reputation of the nutmeg
State in the cutlery exhibit, and
convinced our cousins on this side
of the water that a Yankee can
make a knife with which to do his
whittling. The Remingtons are
here with a splendid display of
rifles and pistols, fully sustaining
the fame of that great concern.
The Remington rifdes are known
almost wherever shooting is known ;
they have that~light airy-innocent
look about them as though they
were only made for ornamental
parades, but oh, what wicked
shooters ! "Give me one of them
'e're,'" said a tall slabsided fellow
besideme, and "I'll bet you two and
a half that I pick off a grass
opper's head every pop at a hun
dred yards." It is very possible
that the gentleman from Maine
may have drawn a long bow on his
marksmanship, and yet these Rem
ingtons look as though they could
do almost anything in the shooting
line. I don't exactly know how but
a rumor got afloat that the Wal
tham Watch Co., were not going to
get a gold medal. This is not true ;
they have one of the finest exhibits,
not only in. the American Depart
ment, but also in the Exposition
Universal, and one which has comn
manded as much attention as any
other in any departm.ent. In ad
dition to the excellence of the ex
hibition of watches, the exhibit it
self has been most carefully at
tended, and I do not believe that
there has been a inoment during
the hours of public exhibition, since
the opening on the first of May,
that the Walthan Watch Co., have
not been represented by their
polite and gentlemanly attendant.
As an evidence of the excellence of
the a gosehibited by this firm. I
have been informed that every ar
ticle they have on exhibition is sold,
and an immense number of orders
have come to them, notwithstand
ing than Geneva has made a finer.
slowing that she has ever made
before at any national exposition.
I, therefore, am happy to state that
they have received the gold medal
which is honestly their due,forif any
exhibit is entitled to a gold medal
it is the exhibit of the Waltham
Those who rememaber the first
Exposition of 1851 cannot well for
get the display -of"American car
riages, then seen foi the first time
on the. other sisie of the water.
From that' time' i the present a
revalution hal, been going on' wiiich
has' completeT glWidd earriage ar
chitecture. The carriag-in which
Louis le Grand rode to. his dorona
tion weighed six tons and a half,
and the harnesses for the horses,
including the collars," weighed
nearly two huidred pounds each.
The 'State carriage'of His Majesty,
the late King of Hanover, is nearly
as havy, and' he Lod Miayor's
coach hu for ages been con
sidered one of the moit outrageous
modeN of clifnsy dignity.
In a very cons!icuous position in
thie Amei-ican Deyam~ent is the
'eShibit 'of Brewtei& Co., 6f New
York, a.d it is no disparagement
to ny other manufaetur6r fn the
United Stf to say that thii is
one of:the ldest and best firms in
America. Thebhibil, in one sense,
is not a lafge oie, and would give a
person unacquainted with the high
character of this concern a very m
perfect idea of their "bipAbilities.
The'light Brewster wagon hailong
been a standard all over'the Union,
and of this class of car'riage the
exhibit is limited. A story is told
of an American gentleman who,
during the reign of the late Napo
leon, brought to Paris a light
Bre r-ster sulky and started out one
pleasant 'afteinoon for a drive on
the Bois de Boulogne; he'had not
proceeded ve1fj far, hoiwever, before
he was arrested by the gendarmes,
for they thought he was trying to
commit suicide in a novel and 'out
rageous manner, and at any rata
they were not going to see him en
danger his life' in a public place.
While the dispute was going on
the Emperor drove up and desired
to' know the cause of the disturb.
'ance, and finding that it was about
an American' carriage he got out!of
his owni conveyance, and against
the earnest remnonstrance of the
whole crowd jumped in to take a
ride. The result was so satisfac
tory that he ordered several for his
own use, and from that day to the
present they have beenas popular in
Paris as they are in New York. The
display, though small, only thirteen
in 'all, is very handsome. One of
the mo~st 'elegant carriages in the
collection is an English drag. In
the diffe rent departments there are
a number of very elegant carriages
of this class. The English and
French have some that are really
magnificent and it must be a matter
of profound satisfaction to the
representative of* Brewster & Co.,
to hear the lavish praises-which are~
daily bestowed on their beautiful
drag. A gold medal rewards Brew
ster &.Co., and it is-well and worth
ily bestowed. Much of the credit.
