MISOBT ?Ti A BT Y
Son^ o' tI>c InTaI1(t
How long the winter lasts, mother;
I wish the spring would come;
I want to eeo thc flowers bloom
Around our cottage home.
I've tried to bear tins pain, mother,
To suffer and bc strongs
But allin rain I feel it now,
I cannot stay lu re long.
1 wish that i could live, mother,
Till spring time sunny hours ; .
I wish that 1 might pass away
Amid thc wild Wood flowers.
Fomow the snow is on the ground,
The cold winds wildly moan,
The very light looks sad to me
That warms thc hearth of home.
I gaze out on thc leafless trees,
I watch their branches wave;
Fd like to sec them bloom before
They lay me in the grave.
I long to see the meadows green,
And buds begin to swell;
I sometimes think the warm bright days
Would cheer aud make mc well.
But FU not muru.ur now, mother,
I know these thoughts aro vain:
I'll never see the waving corn
Or hill-topa green again.
Yet I shall ga? i on brighter scenes
When they lay me down to r?-?i,
For I shall view unblinded then
Tho mansions of tho blest.
A On??GOT*W POISON,
In a small but populous town to
wards tho West of England, tiler?
occurred, sor?o few years ago, i
tragical event so mysterious yet ful
of suspicon iu its details as to riva
any fiction put forth by a writer o
romance, and by which the publi<
curiosity was intensely excited,
was at ono time intimate with tin
family, and obtained in writing fron
a member of it, the particulars whicl
I now give you.
It is very painful to me to write it
(ao hegan Miss Halli well's letter,) bu
you ku cw my dear sister before yoi
left Tiome for India, and arc naturall;
anxious about her fate. I need ito
tell you that we two cider ones, lam
Lucy, have prospered in thc schoc

who was" much younger than wc were
married Dr. Goring, and they wer
prosperous too-as we always though
-and happy in each other. Sh
went with him to his home iu Middle
bury, which was an easy day1
journey from Loudon, where ho ha
a largo aud successful practice,
piece of good fortune happened t
Mary after her marriage; her got
mother left her an annuity of ?31)0
year, which was to relapse back :
Dr. Goring was a pleasant, genth
man-liko man, generous and affable
and a favorite with all, especially tl:
ladies-to whom I used to think 1:
was rather too fond of talking noi
sense, hut he* was a kind, aflectionai
husband to Mary. I did not ofte
go to see them-once every three <
They had been married about si:
teen years, (it seemed nothing t
look back to!) when Mary had
dangerous illness; and as it was ol
Ljid-summcr holidays and leisui
time with me, I went down toMiddl
bury. They had then six chihlrei
(without counting the infaut wh
had just died)-Mary, the eldest,
gentle, good girl of fifteen, just hi
her mother. I found my sister i

Now I am apt to take likes ar
dislikes, when I meet with strange
for the first time. People say it

a prejudice sometimes for and som

in defence of this "prejudice
(which I can no more keep from n
than I can keep the sun from shinii
on my house,) that I never y
found the instinct to mislead m
There was a governess when I we
down to Dr. Goring's this time,
Miss Howard. Sufficiently we
looking she was, with a colorless fa
and a very subdued tone and mann

I took a strange antipathy to tl

she appeared willing to be on frienc
terms with me; that instincti
power within me never warned i
more strongly against any one. S
was about five-and-thirty, but s
dressed herself to look younger.
I sat one afternoon in my siste
room, thinking over the observatic
I had made during my fortnigli
stay. I did not like them all. I 8

suddenly asked, h-tting my wc

"300 a year is a heavj sum to lose
in a family," I remarked.
"It is not so much as that," si e
quickly replied. VThe insurance
takes up-I- forget exactly what, but
I think more than a hundred of it."
"What insurance ?" I said.
"I insured my life some years ago.
Did I never tell you of it? I should
think I did."
Dut she had not. I never hctrd ol'
it till then.
"lt was after a ^e-ry bad confine?
ment, when Jane was born," my
sister went on. "They thought then
that I should lose mv life, and so
did I.think it. And-whilst I lay
j here, getting better, it occurred to
?al? that though I could not continue
the annuity to my children, I might
insure my life with part of it, and
thus secure them something. So I
insured it for ?3,000."
"I am very glad to hear it," 1
I said. "Your husband ought to in?

"Which is tho height of impru

"Nothing. Except tho. furnituri

"Six" children, aud ouly ?3,000,'
I mused, "whatever would be
come of them?" And I put on nr
considering-cap again, and began ti
work out an idea which had beei
haunting me sor some days. "Mary,*
I said, after a while, "suppose I rc

Loudon with me, and liuish her edu

"I am quite willing to retrench :
you can bring Matthew into th
mind," said Mrs. Goring. "But d
you believe it would be more ecoiu

school, than to keep a governess?"'
"Yes, I do," was my decided ai
swer. "If I am to help in this ma

"Hester! do you not like Mi:
"She may bo a good instructress,
I coldly answered, "but, iu my op

guide and companion of Mary."
"I see what you think," cried ir
sister, nervously throwing one ar
out of bed-"you thiuk she is t(
familiar with my husband?"
"Her manners are certainly n
what I approve," I observed.
"Dut you know that Matthew tall
anel laughs with every one," aga
said Mrs. Goring. "And son
young women are so vain as to mi
take that for pointed attentions." .
"There's not much harm iu laug

to that," I growled, feeliug ang
with Matthew iu my heart; "but!
children's goveruess should be ?

"So I told him," said my siste
"for I did remonstrate with him o;
day about it. In the drawing-rooi
in my presence, he will pay her mo
attention than he does me; at t

"If I thought there -was anything

my poor sister-"I do not mean real?

herself, "of courre I do not, and
could not, suspect that; but if I

me. I have lain here, when I was at
the worst, conjuring up a picture

"Now, Mary, you are going from

have said was interrupted by tho en?

I had heard him come in uot Long
before, and supposed I should find
him in the surgery. This surgery
had two entrances to it-ono leading
from thc passage just past thc door
of the dining parlor, the oilier from
the garden at the back of the house.
Thc passage door, by which 1 was
about to enter, was pushed to, but
not closed, and as I was going to
push it open, I heard the voice ol
Miss Howard inside. I have, all my
life, endeavored to bc honorable in
my actions, and I hope I have shun?
ned everything mean; but I thought
it my duty to listen then.

"Your behavior to Miss Howard,
and especially hers to you, is unbe?

both of you when carried on in the
sight of your wife and daughters," I
persisted. "I sa}- nothing of my
sister; that she feels this deeply, I
have discovered to-day, but her re?

her to bear in silence what few wives
would do. But your daughter! Mary

"That you 'cart;' for her to any ex?

single woman lapsos into a flirtation

to conceal it from the world and the
wife, Ave set her down as a silly fool,
who might become something worse
if she were tempted."
"Just so. They suit you for amuse?
ment, but they are not such as you l
would place in your home and at
your hearth. Many a married man
has his 'amusement1 in this way, and
will have it, I suppose; but whoo vcr

dren, be it friend, governess or ser- j
vant, should be4madc an exception to j
your rule of admiration."
"1 declare I don't much admin;

the admiration is mostly on her side." ?
"1 think it is." I answered, dryly; j
"and that ought to have rendered j
it tho more encumbent on you '. J dis?
Was his indifference put on? I have
often wondered since.
"Aud now to something else that
must be put a stop to," I continued.

he asked, by way of mocking me.
"To your house extravagance.
Mary says you are putting by nothing
out of your income."
"Putting by! I should think not.
The boot's ou the other leg."
"Yet you must be in the receipt of

"Not much less, with Mary's mo?

"We 'might' livo upon two hun?

in tho town, and that cannot be done i
with less than I spend."
"Yes it can," I earnestly added.
"You do not need the carriage, you
do not need so many servants, and
you do not need to give your extra?
vagant dinner and evening parties. I

He put on his hat as he spoke, for
he had to attend a consultation; but
I stopped him to say that I should at
once discharge Miss Howard.
"Well, if it must be so, it must,"
was his reply, standing still and look?
ing at me. "But you cannot turn
her out of the house as you would a
dog-you don't mean that. She must
have a mouth's notice."
