Poetical.
I CANNOT CALL HER MOTHER.
BY MRS. SARAH T. BOLTON.
The marriage- rite I' over,
And though I turned aside
To keep the guests from seeinjj
The tears I could rot hide,
I wreathed my face in smiling,
And led my little brother
To greet my father' ch-en
But 1 could not call her mother.
She is a fair young creature,
. With a meek and gentle r.ir;
With blue eycB o!'t and loving,
And silken, sunny hair
I know my fcther gives her
The love he bore another;
But if she were an angel
1 eould not call her mother.
To-night I beard her singing
A aong I used to lore.
When its swecet note were uttered
Uy her whojiinps above.
It pained my hWt to hear it;
And my tears I could not smother
For every word was hallowed
II; the dear voice of ruy mother.
My father, in the sunshine
'Of happy days to come,
Mv half forget the shadow
That darkened our old home;
His heart is no more lonely,
But mcand little brothor
Must still be orphan children
God can give us but one mother.
They've borne my mother's picture
From its accustomed place,
And set beside my father's
A younger, fairer face.
They've made her dear old chamber
The boudoir of another,
But I will not forget thee,
My own, my angel mother.

FRIENDSHIP.

Friendship is a stray sunbeam glancing from
Paradise through the cold clouds of selfishness
that hans like black clouds round tnc tiauito

dark corners and gloomy recesses of human
nature, and shedding a ray of Heaven around
man's mortal heritage, without hicli, earth
would be a gloomy prison nouse, ami ine
acene of withering care ami unmitigated woe.
