tosse thei scente hair
The'falcon whistled, stag-hounds bayed, the
lap-dog barked without.
The scullion dropped the pitcher brown, the
cook railed at the lout!
The steward, counting out his gold, let pouch
and money fail,
And why because the Jester rose to say
grace the hall!
The page played with the heron's plume,
the steward with his chain,
The butler drummed upon the board, and
laughed with might and main
The grooms beat on their metal cans, and
roared till they were red.
But still the Jester shut his cyee, and rolled
his witty head
And when th«y grew a little still, read half
a yard of text,
And waving hand, struck on the desk, then
frowned like one perplexed.

life is but a jest,
A dream, a shadow, bubble, air, a vapour at

Kitty asks—'how came she here?"
Half with joy and half with fear.
Kitty is our oldest child,
Eight years old, and rather wild—
Wild in manner, but in mind,
Wishing all things well defined.
Kitty says, "How came she here,
Father? Tell ma. It's so queer.
Yesterday wo had no sister,
Else I'm sure I should have missed
When I went to lied last night
And this morning bailed her sight
With a strange and new delight.
For indeed it passes all,
To have a sister not so tall

Then loud they laughed, the fat cook's tears
ran down into the pan
The steward shook, that he was forced to
drop the brimming can
And then again the women screamed, and
every stag-hound bayed—
And why because the motley fool so wise

Certainly we must pity them—pity all
who suffer—still more all who sin and must
suffer. They need pity, and there is no dan
ger that we shall pity them too much.—
But the impression conveyed of the inno
cence of the fallen man's family, and their un
merited exposure to want and ignominy, is
often very far from the truth.
In fact, half the men who are loathed as
dragging down their families to shame and
destitution, are really themselves dragged
down by those families—driven to bankrupt
cy, shame, and crime by the thoughtless and
the basely selfish extravagance of wife and
children. Let a man be in the way of re
ceiving considerable money and having prop
erty in his hands, and his' family can rarely
be made to comprehend and realize that
there is any limit to his ability to give and
spend. Fine dresses and ornaments for wife

hair is red, but is now thickly mixed with
white. He wears it short and begins to look
bald on the crown of his head. His mous

While in St. Louis I heard an anecdote of
his character which I have never seen in
print. Being in Ne York man}' years ago,
he passed a stora in of the principal streets
in which an auctioneer was soliciting bids
for an engraving of General Jackson. Both
the seller and the crowd were no political
friends of the subject of the picture, and
were ridiculing it in every possible manner.
How much am I offered for the great
hero of New Orleans?" cried the man at the
stand.
"Only a half a.cent."
Why, he's worth a cent, surely, after
robbing the Bank. Make it a cent, wont
you gentlemen? Now then, how much am
I offered?"
One hundred dollars." said a voice, very
emphatically, as Colonel Harney entered the
door "one hundred dollars, sir," he repeat
ed, making his way through the crowd, half
a head tall«r than any other man in the
room.
The auctioneer, naturally astonished, in
earnest, and started
"Sir, I am in earnest, and I claim my bid.'
interrupted the colonel "and if no one bids
more, I claim the picture."
No one bidding more, he handed the man
the money and his addrcsss.
"And now, sir," he remarked, seizing him
by the collar, and dragging him to the floor,
"I claim the privilege of applying tliu basti
nado to your body for your damnable im
pertinence."
And having caned him to his satisfaction,
no one in the crowd venturing to interfere,

Fish With a Silver I loo!,..
Dr. Franklin, observing one dav a heart
young fellow, whom he knew to *be an cx
traordinary blacksmith, sitting on the wharf,
bobbing for mud cats and eels, called out to
him—
"Ah, Tom, what a pity it is you do:.t
fish wiih a silver hook."
The young man replied he was not able
to fish with a silver hook.''
Some days after this, the Doetor passed
that way again, and saw Tom out at the end
of the wharf again with his long pole bend
ing ever the flood.
What Tom," cried the Doctor, "have
you not got the silver hook yet?"
God bless yon Doctor," cried the black
smith, I'm hardly able to fish with an iron
hook-"
•Toh, poh," replied the Doctor, "go home
to your anvil, and you will make silver
enough in one day to buy more and lietter

There arc many others besides that block

E A HEROISM.
On the 25th of February last, the waters
that wash the solitary island of Ti island'
in the South. Atlantic Ocean, witnessed a
remarkable sight. N that marine disas
ters are few for scarcely week elapses that
does not present its tale of horrors befalling
those that go down to the sea in ships.—
What is rare is an instance of the preserva
tion of human life, by the effects of discipline
and presence of mind. Most gratefully do
we put on record.
At the date, and in the locality above
mentioned, the ship Joseph Somers, of Lon
don, with cargo and passengers for Melbourne
was voyaging towards that port. She had
on board an immensa quantity of spirits, and
eightesn ton3 of gunpowder, packed in 250
barrels. The Captain had been on shore,
several miles distant, to make arrangements
for filling up his water casks on the morrow,
when on nearing his ship flames burst out
from her, and the fearful cry of "fire!" reach
ed him. Urging his rowers on to the utmost
he was soon on board and perceiving at once
that all efforts to save the ship would be un
availing, he contrived by the exercise of that
combined judgement and authority which
mark the perfect seaman, to embark, in due
order, all the passengers and crew in the
v,j

directl— th annexation is declared., and.the
termination of the Company's connection
witn Vancouver's Island is also urged by the
committee. For various reasons the com
mittee believe it advisable to continue the
Company's privilege of exclusive trade in
Rupert's Land and the Indian Territory,
where there is no prospect of settlement.
On the whole the report is fair and impartial,
doing justice_to all parties, and we fully ex
pect that on its recommendation, Parliament
will pass a bill for the arrangement of the
question.

course first handed in-—The captain being
the last man to leave the burning deck. Af
ter snndry dangerous adventures, they landed
on the island all safe and after a few days
detention were received on board a passing
vessel bound to Kurrachec, which put them
on shore at the Cape ol Good Hopo. Their
relief was altogether unexpected.
This Captain's name was Elmston, and he
seems to have done his duty wed. All honor
to him but we would not overlook the real
heroism of his chief officer Mr. Stokes, who
was in command when the Are first broke
out. W have already mentioned the large
quantity »f powder stowed away. Mr.
Stokes'first care, on finding that the flames
were beyond control was to heave this over
board—a ticklish article to handle at such a
moment. But he succeeded in doing it.—
The crew behaved well, tho male pasengers
aided zealously, the women—always more
heroic than men—wore calm. Thc'suspense

Curious story afloat. -Robert Schuyler
reported to be alive.
Mrs. Robert Schuyler, (widow,) better
known as Mrs. Spicer, the widow of the cel
ebrated financier, has erected a castellated
cottage on Saratoga Lake, about half a mile
from that great place of resort—the I^ake
House—whore "all the world" go to drive,
or to dine on the "famous fried potatoes."
Mrs. Schuyler having planted a mansion of
some pretensions near a resort so fashionable
all the tourists of the United States, will
of course, drive to take a look at her—and
for sixty to ninety days in the year she
must expect people to be almost looking in
to her windows.
The selection of a spot to build upon in so
conspicuous a place, has started the public
gossip into all sorts of romances, fictions and
fancies, and while there is an earnest inquiry
where did the money come from?" there is
a not less earnest assertion that Robert
Schuyler is not dead. What gives strong in
terest to the whole affair, is a little stone
building some one hundred feet from the man
sion, with high windows, up out of sight on
foot, erected nominallyforher Roman Cath
olic chapel, to which rumor adds—I do not
know—for I have never been down to sec—
that there is a subterranean passage from
the house Th workmen have been pump

not give out that Robert Schuyler ther
yet alive, and when anybody comes into the
house, he runs underground to the chapel
and gets into his coffin, 'dead,' to which his
appearcucc while living would add
a probability. The story is wr current
and is the natural result of his wld iW'serec-

HONOUR .\MOXO REKKT.S.—A curious lu.
incident has just occurred illusti-a'ting the
strange medley of races, the English, nation
are called on to govern. There ai sonic
hundreds of Santal prisoners in our goals.
They arc condemned for the rebellion, but
they are otherwise not a bad race, and in
goal they pineforfreedom and die like shoe]).
The mortality in the Bhaugulpore Goal hut
year was upwards of 40 per cent. The Lieu
tenant Governor was accordingly advised to
let them loose, binding them to work in the
great swamp province around Calcutta, call
ed the Sundcrbunds. They were asked for
their parole of honour not tofly,and, after
two days/ hesitation, gave it. A few days
ago it was announced that all had lied. Yes
terday, however, they all came, walked
gravely up to the Alliporc Goal, and deman
ded admittance. Not a man had fled. They
said the cholera was so bad in the Snudor
buiid.s—-(juite true—that they could not stay,
and so, in obedience to their promise, th
had come back to goal. They will probably
be »ut to other work, but their conduct lias
exceed strong.spmpathy. aliereiis r&i an
other race in India who, under the circum
stances, would have kept their word. They
could have gone home just as easily as to

them again. This is tho race which has
