from Captain Chase, giving an account of the
sickness and' death of hir brother-in-law, Mr.
Drown Owen, who died on hia passage to Cali

their way to, or after having reached the land of

Lay up nearer, brother, nearer,
f For my limbs are growing cold,
And thy presence seemeth dearer
When thy arms around me fold.
I am dying, brother, dying ;
Soon you'll miss me in your berth(
For my form will soon be lying
'Neath the ocean's briny surf.
Hearken to me, brother, hearken,
I hare something I would say,
Ere the veil ray vision darken.
And I go from hence away.
1 am going, surely going,
But my hope in God is strong ;
I am willing, brother, knowing
That he doeth nothing wrong.
Tell my father when you greet him,
That In death I prayed for him,
Prayed that I might one day meet him
In a world that's free from sin:
Tell my mother, God assist her,
Now that she is growing old,
Tell, her child would glad have kissed her,
When his lips grew pale and cold. :
Listen, brother, catch each whisper,
'Tis my wife I'd speak of now j
Tell, 0 tell her how I missed her
When the fever burned my brow.
Tell her, brother, closely listen,
Don't forget a single word
That in death my eyes did glisten
With the tears her memory siirred.
Tell her she must kiss my children
Like the kiss I last impressed
Hold them as when last I held them,
Folded closely to my breast.
Give them early to their Maker.
Putting all their trust in God,
And he never will forsake her ;
He has said so in hi word.
0, my children, heaven bless them,
They were all my life to me ;
Would I could once more caress them,
Ere I sink beneath the sea.
'Twas for them I crossed the ocean,
What my hopes were I'll not tell ;
But they've gained an orphan's portion,
Yet he doeth all things well.
Tell my sisters I remember
Every kindly parting word,
And my heart has been kept tender
By the thoughts their memory stirred.
Tell them I ne'er reached the haven
Where I sought the precious dust,
But Ie gained a port called hearen,
-.There the gold will never rust.
Urge therato secure an entrance,
For they'll find their brother there ;
Faith in Jesus and repentance
Will secure for them a share.

'Tis, I know his voice so well ;
When I'm gone 0 don't be weeping,
Brother, here's my last Farewell.

A NEW WAY TO GET A WIFE "
From my lodgings at the Carlton House,
New York, I had waudercd, one bright
mooalight night, over half the city from
Bleecker street to tho Battery, and now
stood under a gas light in Broadway, op
posite tho Park, watching the passers-by,
as they came from the Theatre on the
other side, with the advantage, from the
brilliant glow of the light, of not being
seen myself. . There is something very in
teresting in a city by moonlight; this was
a gloriously clear and beautiful night, and
in tho long deserted and shadowy streets,
that so lately teemed with busy beings,
now wrapped about by the silent mantle of
night, lay a pregnant monde. I had stood
for a moment in a contemplative mood,
tho thoroughfare was again in all silence,
tho crowd had passed hurrying on, warmly
dressed in their furs, when a hand was
gently laid upon my arm. Turning, I be
held a female figure slight in form, and
very beautiful, yet palo and emaciated in
feature. A hasty word was rising to my
lips, as I essayed to repulse the intrusion,
thinking the being before me one of those
fallen angels who infect every large city.
And more particularly this, where may be
found as very neighbors, vice and virtue,
riches and poverty, misery and happiness.
A second glance convinced me of the in
justice of my suspicion, as the poor crea-
j turo sunk at my feet imploring charity !
I liaising the thinly clad child, for she was
but a child in years, from the ground, in
a few words, I heard a story of misery,
and suffering that opened every channel to
my heart. Yet determined to learn its
truth, I threw the warm and ample folds
of my cloak around her, and supporting
her weak and emaciated form, hurried by
her direction towards her home. Wo pas
sed down Chatham, through dark lanesjand
alleys, into the section of the city known
! as tho Five Points, and presently descen
ded into a cold, damp cellar, tho ground
being scarcely covered by rotten and bro
ken boards. In the least exposed corner
of this desolate place, was a large box, in
which lay a couple of children on straw,
scantily covered with old carpets, tho one
sleeping innocently, while tho other, half
sleepy, and half awake, uttered subdued
sobs. My companion, pointing to the
children, groaned out the word starving,
aud sunk fainting to the floor. Rushing
from the apartment, I sought the nearest
Restaurant, procured hot wine and water,
and iu scarcely less time than it has taken
to relate this, I was again in this cellar of
want, administering to the immoderate ap
petites of the half-starved children.
So overcome was my companion by her
i feelings and first sufferings, that many
minutes elapsed before she could partake
! of anything. At length I prevailed upon
her to taste the wine which warmed and
invigorated her almost broken constitution,

0QC evening about three weeks after tho
j apartment in Iloustan bt., at a work table
j ncar a cheerful fire sat the being, who so
I lately supplicated charity at my feet in thc
! cold streets. A stranger would not have
recognized her now. The color was fast
returning to her cheeks, her dark and
thoughtful e)es sparkled with vivacity, and
a sweet smile ornamented her lovely coun
wen iNora, saw i, (ncr name was
Nora) 'you seem to have a quiet comforta
ble homo now, and your little brothers too,
they have improved wonderfully within
the last fortnight.' Tears glistened for a
moment in her large piercing eyes as they
beamed with gratitude on me.
'Indeed, sir, wo are very happy,' said
she, 'and owe all, even our lives to you.'
'Not so,' Nora, said I, 'thank Heaven
rather than me, for it was an all-ruling
providence tbat conducted you to me, and
I am only an unworthy agent of that kind
Heaven. But my good girl, you have
promised to tell me your history, will you
do so to-night ? I have only heard suffi
cient to know how worthy you are, and
that you suffered much.'
'I have tried very hard, Sir, to forget
my past history, but I would do any thing
in my power to please you, and as it is
your wish, I will tell you all of my life, I
I was born in Dublin, in which city my
father, Hecter Neill. was a lawyer of emi
nencc, but having been induced by an em
igrating party , to America, to join them,
be arranged his business and with my
' mother and myself, and the twins, then
J infants, he came to this country. We ar
rived in this city about five . years since'.
the very day I was twelve, years old.
; .For more than two years wc lived hap
pily and in comfort, when the demon of
iutempcrancc seduced my dear father into
his embrace, and for many months we
were miscrablo indeed. At length my
poor father, sickened and died, leaving us
but a small sum, with which to procure
the necessaries of life. My mother imme
diately took the cheapest lodgings she could
obtain, proposing to economise in such a
manner as to be able to support ourselves,
and send the boys to school, but alas, in
her endeavors to earn a livelihood, she
over-tasked her strength and become sick
then followed a time of want and.dcpri
vation, I shudder to remember. At last
my dear mother died, and was conveyed to
the silent grave.'
Here Nora paused ; choaking with emo
tion, she buried her face, in her hands, and
wept. I took the hand of the sobbing girl,
and offered her such consolation as my
mind aflbrded, and assured her that neither
she nor the children should again want a
father, or a home. The conclusion of her
tale is one of too much wretchedness and
suffering to bear writing. She told of her
constant yet fruitless endeavors to procure
employment; of her removal from one
place to another, each one more miserable
than tho former ; of her prayers for char
ity which wcro answered by tho sensual
villain to whom it was mado by the most
debasing proposals, which wero indignant
1 leave the reader to realize tho degree
of suffering that Nora Neill must have ex
perienced up to tho time of her release
from tho miserable cellar in the Five
Points. Nora was handsome, and Nora
was pure too as the driven snow. What
an admirable soul that young girl possess
ed, to resist all temptation to sin, in the
vile connection her poverty drew around
her, preferring even starvation to dishonor.
'I had' said she to me, 'the night I met
you almost crazed with the cold and hunger
that I suffered, determined at last to sub-
mit to any degradation to supply thc dear
children, once more with food, and then to
destroy my life which' was almost insup
portable. But said she, looking up into
my face, her own radiant with gratitude,
'Heaven sent me to ono of its angels.' I
stood abashed before her, knowing my own
My greatest pleasure, for months that
followed, was to pass my evening with
Nora, reading and conversing with her. I
was agreeably surprised to find included
into her mind, high and correct principles,
and also to know that her education was of
no mean character. By constant commu
nication with her, I found that her mind
like her person.as pure and beautiful,
and that both had already acquired an un
usual degree of perfection, notwithstanding
her youth and tho hardships she had been
I had with their sister's consent, con
ducted thc brothers to an academy at no
great distance from the city, where Nora
and mvself often visited them, well satis-
ficd of the motherly care of the matron
who had them 'n charge. I bed induced
Nora after much persuasion to take lessons
in music, but only through thc argument,
that by so doing, she would enable herself
to become a teacher, and thus acquire a
profitable means of support ; for although
she was perfectly frank with mc, in rela
tion to every matter, yet she feared there
was an impropriety in her receiving so
much at my hands. Sho soon performed
upon the fine instrument that ornamented
her room, with exquisite taste. I had not,
nor pould I realize or define my connection
with this beautiful girl. A few months of
thoughtless companionship had so woven
our feelings together that I could not love
a sister more affectionately. Nora was
now quite round and perfect in person, her
health was entirely restored, and her
checks glowed with exquisite color. I
was often surprised at her young beauty,
rendered still more beautiful to one who
realized her late destitute and forlorn con
dition. One evening having as usual entered the
house in which I had secured apartments
for Nora, I knocked gently at the door but
received no answer, and was surprised to
find the door locked on the inside. I asked
the lady of the house if Miss Meill had
gone out. I was answered in a surly
manner, that 'Miss Neill, probably knew
ncr own business Dest, ana that sno 'was
not her keeper.' Startled at this answer,
I hurried from the house, understanding
the allusion at once. Tho idea had never
before entered my head, that my constant
attention to the poor and friendless girl,
might cause her reputation to suffer. As
passed out of tho door of tho , house, I
was followed by the little house boy, who
belonged in the family, and who had often
received my gifts of small change with
'Sir, sir,' said ho in a half whisper 'I
wants to say something to you.'
I ask.'l him kindly if he wanted money.
'No, no said he, 'Tom's no fool, Tom
loves you and Miss Nora, Tom wants to
make you happy.'
Surprised at the boys words, I stopped
and asked him what ho wanted to say.
'Mistress isn't kind to Miss Nora, Mis
tress talks bad of you to Miss Nora, Miss
Nora cries, Miss Nora Bick in bed.'
In the words of the half-witted lad,
read the cause of the door's being closed
and also of a Certain restraint of manner
had noticed some days past while in Nora's
company. I called the ensuing evening.
and knocking as usual, I was admitted.
Nora sat at her work table, busty plying
her needle, with swollen eyes and pale
countenance. I could not hardly believe
that a few sleepless nights could have
wrought such a change. 'Nora,' said I,
holding out my hand, 'I fear that you arc
ill.' 'Oh no, Henry. 'I am not sick.'
'But why would you not admit me last
night 'I I asked. A blush tinged her pale
check, and a tenr trembled in her eye.
Tell me Nora, why have you treated mo so
coolly of late, would you have any thing
you have not yet?'
'Ah no, Henry, you are but far too prod
igal to me in every respect. I cannot tell
you how uubappy I am. You must take
back all this you have given me, I insist
upon supporting myself, thanks to your
generosity, I can now do so.'
You offend mo Nora ! I had never bo
fore spoken so harshly to her. She started,
withdrew her hand and looked enquiringly
in my face, then placinghcr hand in mine,
'You are unkind to speak to mo thus,
you know that your visit is imperitive law
to me, and that I revere you as a father,
for you have indeed been ono to us,' said
she, weeping. I could await an explana
tion from her lips no longer, but told my
suspicions, and soon all was explained.
The Mistress of the house had imputed my
constant attention to improper motives,
had charged mo with evil intent, and
warned my victim, as sho termed her,
against her fate. These charges were in
dignantly refuted. She had never appear
ed more lovely to me. Her jet black hair
which curled naturally, hung in most envi
able beauty about her swan like neck,
while her countenance beaming with ani
mation, was the picture of loveliness. I
drew her gently to my breast and told her
not to care for what tho world said, while
she had the consciousness of pursuing the
path of virtue, that sho must think of me
as one who had no desire, separate from
her happiness. I found I was in love with
poor Nora Neill, and as her head rested
upon my shoulder, and my arms around
her waist, I told her so ! and when I kis
sed her burning forehead and asked her if
sho could learn to love mo as a husband,
blushing deeply she nestled te my bosom,
repeating tbat my desire was law to her,
she could learn to do anything for my sake!

B,Thc arrangements of thc material
universe, strongly favor thc idea, that man
belongs to a fami'y of created intelligences.
Let any one gaze upon the magnificence of
t; starry night, and this thought is present
with hiin. Beautiful are the stars, in their
far dwelling place. No curse abides upon
them; no discord mars their harmony; no
bloom perishes there; no sad memorials of
sin darken their surfaces. The iniasro of
tho Creator is fresh upon them, and thc
song of creation's morning, yet rolls from
them to thc throne. They gather over us
nightly and charm our thoughts away from
earth. Is there nothing signified by all
this? Is there nothing meant by their
brijrhtcning our firmament and cheering
our midnight hours ? We are surely one
with them. Revelation confirms thco fun
cies. It sanctions all that poetry has dream
ed, and establishes the brilliant discoveries
of modern astronomy. It tells us that hea
ven and earth are tho same family. It
tells us that our Mediator is their God; that
his glorious throne is the centre of attrac
tion to all the intelligence of tho universe
that his revelations are tho sources of
wisdom and instruction to them and that
thc crowns of all ranks and stations are
laid nt his feet. "God in Christ," is the
God of thc universe.
The Precious Pkaul. Religion in a
female secures all her interests. It graces
ler character, promotes her peace, endears
her friendship, secures esteem, and adds a
dignity and worth indescribuble to all her
deeds. How pleasant, when tho absent
husband can think of home, and reflect
that angels watch the place 1 When about
to leave her a widow, how consoling, if her
character is such that she can lean on the
widow's God, and put her children under
tho guardianship of Him, who is the fath
cr of thc fatherless ! Then he quits the
world calm and happy, supported by the
hope he shall meet them all in heaven.
J,A New York correspondent, speak
ing of the countless poor of that city
says: " To try one of them, I asked her a
stout girl of twelve, to whom I was con-
templating the donation of a copper how
long she would work washing my floor and
stairs, for a three cent picee, to which she
responded with a bnrst of nature : ' all day
sir, and all winter at the same price.' "

We always think, in such cases, a young la

smiles and endeavor to captivate a more
worthy beau. ' You may depend upon it,
that a man who has no more stability of
mind or honesty of purpose, than to act in
this way to a young lady, is not worth a
tear of regret ; on the contrary, she should
bo especially happy that she has so luckily
got rid of a person who throughout life in
whatever he undertook, would unquestion
ably exhibit that same irresolution of
mind. Love is like every thing else; a

very likely to bo unsafe in everything else.
