Tis tl>t? night before the bridal,
And to-morrow >he must wear
TL? emblenu of affection
Amid her eunny hair,
But not the orange blossom",
Nor tlio diamond's co-ttly blaze,
Can give her back the brightness
Of her girhood's happy daye.
Tia the night before tho bridalThere
arc no sounds of glee,
And tlie young ones are clinging
Around their father's knee;
Their smiles are changed to sorrow,
Now the morrow is so near,
That must part them, and forever.
From their gentle sister dear.
Tis the night before the bridal?
Ah, do not chide her tears,
Tis no slight twntr to sewr

To leave that homo forever,
When all seems bright and blcss'd,
Where all was mirth and gladness,
And a mother's smilu earess'd.

Of friend.-hip and of home !
Oh? sing the song wo me l to sinj

No feeble word* can tell;
But sing of pleasures and ? f pains,
In some melodious lay;
And touch the lute to pensive strains?
I would not have them gay.
There is a pathos in thy voice ?
A sadness in thy tone,
That makes the weary heart rejoice?A

And sing them o'er and o'er;

A PIECE OF LEGAL ADVICEr
Rennes, the ancient capitol of Brittany,
is a famous place of law. People
come from the extremi.ies of the country
to get information and ask advice. To
visit Rennes without getting n ivice appears
impossible to a Breton1 This was
true at the latter end of the last cenfu'T,
just as it is at present, and especially
among the country people who nru a timid
and cautious race.
Now it happened one day that a farmer
named Bernard, having come to Rennes
on business, bethought himself that
as lie had a few hours to spare, it would
he veil to employ them in getting the advice
of a uood lawver. lie had often
herd of Monsieur Potler de la Germodaie
who was in such high repu'e, that
people believed a lawsuit gained when he
undertook their cause. The country,
man enquired for his address, and proceeded
to hi* house in l!ue St. The clients
were numerous, and Peinard had to
wait some lime. At length i is turn ar
rived, and ho was introduced. M. Poti??r
de la Go?-modaio signed liim to be sealed,
then tnkinjr off his spectacles, and placing
them on hi- desk, he requested to know
"Why. Mr. lawyer." said the farmer,
twirling his hat. "I h tve lvard so much

I wish to take the opportunity of consulting

friend, vou wi.h to bring an act on, perhaps?"'

"Will you tell mo, then, what you do

Advice?for pivment, of course, ns J nm
w<?II ahieto give it to you, and I don't
wish to lose thi* opportunity.*'
M. Potior too't a pen and paper, and
asked the oountryrmn hi* niimp.
"Pierre Bernard," replied the latter,
oaite haopy thai he was at length underwood.
"7h?rty or very neir it."
"My vocation! Ob, that means what I
do. I nin a farmer."
The lawyer wrote two line?, folded
the paper, find handed it to hi* strange
"Is it finished already? Well and
ijood. What is the price of that advice,
" !.! - I- 1 !
ues'nlira paid ir.e money, an-.i iook ihs

of his opportunity*.
When he reached home it was four [
o'clock, the journey Imd fatigued him,
and he det ?nnined to rest himself the remninder

the hay had been two days rut, and was
completely saved. One of the hoiking
men came to ask if it should be drawn

farmer's wife, who had come in to meei
her husband. "It would be a pity to

The man objected that the

uum JIII-HJU . inuu, n nu mm u? in ntening
to the argument, was uncertain
which way to decide, when suddenlv recollected
that he had h lawyer's advice
in his pocket.
"Wiiit a minu'e," hi* exclnimed; "I

His wife ventured a few rnoe objections,
hut he declared that ho h id not

not returning till the hav was brought in.
The event seemed to piove the wisdom of

and c irriod away all the hay that
had been !?*ft in the fi 'Ids. The crops of
the n'ighboring farms were completely
destroyed. The success of this lir.->t expesionce
gave him such fait'* in the advice
of a lawyer, that from that day forth he
adopted It as a rule of his conduct, and
became, by his order and dilig nee, one
of the richest farmers in the country.

Antiquaries will feel deeply in'orested in
the discovery of vast regions of ancient
rains near San Diego, and within a day's

of the Gulf of Ou!i ornia. Portions of
:^mdwellings, lofty stone pyramids,
(seven 01 these within a mile square.) and
massive granite rings or circular wnJU

gone, thtic history actually unknown to
anv of the existing f.imilios of mankind

recently discovered cities of Palenque,

Egypt: in o'hers, nguin, the monument of
