BURY ME IN THE MORNING.
BURY ME IN THE MORNING. BY MRS. HALE.
Burr me in tbe morning, mother,
Oh! lot me hare tbe light
Of one bright day on my grave, mother
Ere you leu re me a'.oiie with the night;
Alone in the night of the era re, mother
Tit a thought of terrible fear !
And you will be here alone, mother,
And ttara will he shining here.
Bo bury me in the morning, mother,
And let me hare the light
Of one bright day on my grave, mother,
Ere I am alone with the night.
Ton tell me of the Savior't lore, mother
I feci it in my heart.
But oh ! from this beautiful world, mother,
'Tit hard for the young to part !
Forever to part, when heremothcr,
The soul it fain to stay,
.For the grave is deep oud .dark, nwtlw r,
And heaven seems far away.
Then bury me in the morning, mother,
And let me have the light
Of one bright day on my grave, mother,
Ere I am alone with night.
Jferer unclasp my hand, mother,
Till it talis awar from ihiue
Let me hold the pledge of my lore, mother,
Till I feel the love divine;
' The love divine oh! look, mother,
Above its beams I see:
And there an angel's fi.ee, mother,
Is smiling down on me !
"So bury me in the morning, mother,
When sunbeams flood the sky.
For death is the gate of life, mother.
And leads to light on high.
THE MECHANIC HERO.
A TALE OF THE REVOLUTION.
Near Del worth corner, at the time olthe
levolution, there stood a quiet cottage, some
what letired Irom the toad, under the shade or
atout chesnut tree. It wot quiet cottage,
nestling away there in one corner of the forest
toad, a deal home with sloping roof, wall of
ilark gray stone, nd a casement bidden among
Tines and flowers.
(Qa one side, amid the interval of foresl
Vecs, nseeu the rough linesof a blacksmith
Vhop. There was unall gaiden in front,
with blown graveled walk and beounfll beds
uf flowers. Here, at the time of the Revolu
tion, there dwell a stout blacksmith, his young
Vifesndhrr babe. What cares that black
amilh, working awoy in that shadowy nook, for
warf What feared he for the peril of the
times, so long as bit strong arm, ringing thai
hammer 01. the anvil, might gain bread for his
wife and child? Ah, he cared httle for the
. war he :00k no note of the panic that shook
the little valley, when a few mornings beloie
il.. I.aiilcof Braiidvwine, while shoeing
Jiorse or a lory refugee, heoveiheaid a plot for
the surprise and capture or Washington. The
American lender was to be allurid into the
.foilj ofthe lories; his person once in the
British camp, the English General migh! -end
the "Traitor Washington," home lo be tued
l London. Now cur blacksmith working
in 1 1. i dim nook of the forest, without
taring for battle or war, Imd still a sneaking
'kindlier for this AfiT Washington, whose
name rang on the lips of all men. So one
uight, biddi g hit wife good bye, and kissing
the babe that reposed ou her bosom, siniliiii
'as he alepi, he hurried away to the American
camp, and told the story to Washington.
It was morning eie he came back - it was
.the dimness of the autumi al morning that the
'blacksmith was plodding his woy along the
forest toad. Some lew paces ahead,
whs an aged outstanding oul in the rad--

sight wbj there ! Where, the night before,
ke had left a peaceful cottage smiling under
-green chesnut tree, in Ihe light of the setting
tun, now only was a heop of black smoking
embers and a burnt and blasted tree. This
was hit home ! And there stood the black
roilh, gaxing upon the wreck of his hearth
tone there he atood with folded arms
moody blow ; but in a moment a smile broke
over his face, lie saw il all. In the night
fcoro had taken fire, and beer, bumrd to cin--ders,
but his wife and child had escaped
lhat he thonked God. With ll.e toil of
wtou'. arm. plying there on the anvil, he would
build a fairer home, for bia wife ami child.
eah flowers should bloom over the wjlks,
more lively vjnes tiail along tbe basement.
With thia resolve kindling over his face,

He turned and beheld the face of a neightor.
It wa a eigl.bor'a face, but there

the stout man at the foot or the cherry tree,
his head sunk, his leg hanging over the road

British came rushing along the narrow rond

the way, waving them on with his sword;

Lessons of Contentment.

was standing near a Well, when a little bird
flew down seeking, water. There was, in

Origin of "Seeing the Elephant."
Some thirty eara since, at one ofthe Phila-
Idelphia Theatre, a pageant was in rehearsal.
in which it was necessary loh.iven n elephant.
No elephant was to te had. The "wild
beasts" were all travelling, and the property
man, stage director and managers, almost had
fits when they thought of it. Dnys past in
the hopeless task of trying to secure one ; but
at Inst Yankee ingenuity triumphed, as indeed
it always does, and an elephant was made to
order, of wood, akins, paint and varnish.
Thus fur the matter was nil very well, but as
yel, Ihey had found no means to make said
comuiliaiion linvci. iirie npum wie genius in
the manager, stage director and property man
stuck oul, and two of Ihe "broths" were duly
installed as legs. Ned L , one of the
true and genuine "u'hoys," oeld Ihe resoon-
sible position of fore legs, and fur Feveral
nights he played that heavy part to the entire
sa'.isfnotiou of the malingers and the delight
of the audience.
The part, however, was a very tedious one,
as the elephant was obliged lo lie on the stage
lor about an hour, and rieu was rather too
fond of the bottle to remain so long wi'hout
"wetting his whistle," so he set his wits to
work to find a wuy to carry a wee drop with
him. The eyes of the elephant being made
of two porter bottles, with the necks in, Ned
conceived the brilliant idea of filling them
with good stuff. This he fully carried out
and elated with success he willingly under
look to play lore legs again.
Night came on the theatre was densely
crowded with the denizens of the Quaker city
the music was played in sweetest strains
the curtain rose and the play began. Ned
and 'hind-legs' marched on the slate. The
el(-r,h.int was gree'ed ilh round upon round
of applause. Tbe decoration., and the trap
pings were gorgeous. The elephant one the
prince seated upon his back, were loudly
cheered. The play piineeded ; the elephant
was marched round and round upon the stage.
The fore legs got dry, withdrew one of the
corks, ana treated the hind legs, and then
drank the heolth of the audience in a bumper
of genuine tlrphant-iye whiskey a brand
the way, till then unknown. On went the
play and on went Ned drinking. The con
cluding march waa to he ma e the signal
was given, and the fore legs stoggercd towards
the front ofthe stage. The conductor pulled
the ears to the right the fore legs staggered
to the left. The Toot lights obstructed the
way, and he raised his foot and stepped plump
into the orchestrt ! Down went the fore legs
on the leader's fiddle over, of course, turned
the elephant, sending the prince and hind legs
into the middle of the pit. Ihe managers
stood horror-struck the prince and the hind
egs lay confounded the boxes m convulsions,
the actors choking with laughter, and poor
Ned, casting one look, a strange blending
drunkeness, grief and laughter at the scene,
fled lustily out ofthe theatre, closely followed
by the leader with the wreck of his fiddle per-
lurmiug various ci.t and thur.it motions in
air. The curiam dropped on a scene behind
the scenes. No more pageant no more

Two Laws for the Ladies.
1. Before vou bow lo a lady in the street
permit her to decide whether you ma do So
or not. by at least a look of recognition.
S. hen your companion bows to a lady,
you should do the same. When a gentleman
bows to a lady in your company, always bow
to him in return.
Nothing is so ill understood in America, as
those coiivcntial laws of society, so well un
derstoud and practised in Europe. Lad es
complain that gentlemen pass them by in the
streets, unnoticed, when, in Tact, the lault
arises from their own breach of politeness,
It is their dutt to do the nimohle first, for it is
a privilege which ladies enjoy of choosing their
own associates or acquaintances. No gentle
man likes to ru.k being cut in the si reels by a
lady through a prcmaiure snlnte. Too many
ladies it would seem, "don't know their trade'
of politeness. Meeting ladies in the streets,
whom one has casually met in company, Ihry
seldom bow ur.li.-ss he bow first, and ulieii a
gentleman never departs from the rule of good
breeding except by the w ay of experiment, his
acquaintances do not multiply, but t,e s'l.r.ds
probably charged with rudeness. The tale is
plain. A lady must be civil to a gentleman in
whose couipanyshe is casually brought; but a
gentleman is not upon this to presume tioon
acquaintanceship (lie first time he afterwards
meets her in the street. If it be her will, she
gives some token of rccognis-ition, when the
gentleman may bow; otherwise he must pa?s
on and consider himself a stranger. No l.idy
peed hesitate to bow to a gentleman, for he
will promptly and politely answer, even if he
has forgotten his fair -saluter. None but
brute ecu do otherwise; should he pass on
rudely, his character is declared. Politeness,
or good breeding, is ltko "the re.-uun of

Having no'hing to lose, no calamity can

man burst into tears and said :
"1 have b. die. 1 had only one little broth
er : he had beautiful blue eves, and
hair, and 1 loved him, but one day I got drunk,
for the first time in my life, and coming home
I found my little brother gathering slraw-ber-ries
in thegorden, and I became angry with
him without a cause, and killed him it one
blow wilh a rake, I did not knew an ihin
about it until the next morning, when 1 awoke
from sleep, and found myself tied and guarded,
and was told that when my little brother was
found his hoir was clotted wilh blood and
brains, and he was dead. Whiskey has done
this. Il has ruined me. 1 never was drunk
hut once. I hove only one more word to soy,
and then I am goine to my final Judge. I say
lo young people : Never. ! AW ! Nlvr.a I
lojch any thing that can intoxicate." As he
promt need these words, he sprang from the
box and was launched iuto an endless eterni.
I was melted into tears nt the recital, and
the awful spectacle. Viy little heart seemed
as if it wuu Id burst, and lutok away from
ir.y aching bosom so intolerable were my
feeliiifs of grief. And there, in that car-
raige, while on the, cushioned seat, looking
with streaming eyes on the body of lhat un
fortunate young n an, as it hung dangling and
writhing between heaven and earth, as if unfit
for either ploce, there it was that 1 'took tie
