THE WOOING OF LOVE.
Come from your lung, long roving
Od the sea so wi Id and rough,
Come to tne tender and loving.
And I ahull be blcsMil enough.
Wh're your sails have limn unfurling.
What wind, have blown on jour brow,
1 kni nut, anil auk not, uiy lUrling,
So that you come to mo now.
Sorrowful, sinlul anil lonely,
I'oor anil despised though you be;
All arc nothing, if only
You turu from the tempter to me.
Of men though you lo unforglven,
Though priest lie unable to shrive,
I'll pruy till I weary llhcav.ou,
If only yuu come back alive.
What a Fashionable Woman Thought
of Men's Legs.
Old Lady Chesterfield thus gives hor
idea of mens legs to lior niece:
"As a rulo, good men have good logs.
Crooked log, crocked iuind; that is ouo of
my mottoes, and oue whiuli 1 havo very
seldom found to be in fault. . Your dear
pupa had u prejudico against tailors. 1
am more tolerant; and yet I can't help
thinkiog that they get morally warped
from twisting their legs beneath them, as
they aro in the habit of doing. What
dreadful legs somo of our most atrocious
criminals have had. The infamous Burke,
my dear, who pitch-plastered people to
death before you wore born, and sold
their bodios to the surgoons, had the vorv
worst pair of bow-lega that ever wassoen.
J ;Ook what spoiling their logs by sitting
tailor-fashion has brought the Turks to.
In my young days, a tight log was a
pretty accurate sign ot a gentleman; in
your young days, tlie Jooso, or peg-top leg
is fashionable People who wear tight
trousers now-n-days are either danoing-
in.tstcrs, waiters, actors, or sporting char
acters and prize-fighters, ostlers, and omnibus-conductors.
But, ah met what
exquisitely turned legs and feet I havo
seen in the days wlien the aristocracy
wore white keraeymore small, silk stock
inns, and pumps. I do not
object to your studying the extremities of

.. I.., ..1,1 ::!... i.-j ; '.i
nuuuivi luoutubu i ngiu juujuiry into tne
condition of his legs. A man may gain
jireat victories, or sudor shameful defeat.
through his legs. Never mind the ridic
ulous American purists who are too
modest to call a spade a spade, and a leg
a log, and nicknaming them 'supporters,
go straightway to deviso the absurd and
inunodost Bloomer customo, giving rise,
as it does, to ribald comments from men
on a part of lady's dress with which they
hare no business, and ought to know
nothing about. But you are a brave Eng
lish qirl, and as you see hundreds of
men's legs evory day, you have a right
to study, to observe, and to form your
opinions on them."
A Good Remedy for Discontent.
' "Oh, motherl" said Clara, "I got so
tired eating just bread and butter and po
tatoes for my supper, and drinking only
cold water out of this tin eup! You do
not know how beautiful Mrs. Carrington's
titlilo looked last night when I went nome
with the work. They were just taking
dinner, and asked mo into the dinning
room to get my money. The tea things
were silver and the plates china; and lit
tle KUen, who is no bigger than 1 am,
hud a cup of coffco and a little silver cup
for water too, Thero was Buoh nico
tilings on the table fresh fish and
ohickon, and everything so good! Don't
you wish we were rich people, too,
mother?"
"My little girl must bo careful to keep
'Giant Discontent' out of her heart if sho
would be happy. "Wo must be contont to
live in tho sphero in which (Sod has
placed us, for ho knows a great deal bet
ter than we do what is good for us. If you
had bcon with me this morning, Clara,
and had seen what I did, you would feel
more thankful for your good, wholesome
supper of fresh bread and butter and
mashed potatoes."
"Whcro did you go, mother? Down to
see poor Margarot again?"
"Yes, my dear, and found her worse
than ever. Sho cannot go out washing
unyinoro, and her two little children
were almost starving. All they had to
cat yesterday was some turnip parings
Johnny gathered from the street"
"Oh, mother, how dreadful!' said little
Clara, her eyes filling with tears. "I wish
J could take my supper to them."
"They are well provided for now. A
kind gentleman, for whom I havo been
mowing, has sent them provisions enough
to last several weeks. Yon should have
eccn that poor woman's eye lighten up
with joy at the gift, and how eagerly she
supped the bowl of warm cruel I made
fur her."
"When we are tempted to frot, Clara,
and envy those who are better off than
we, it will be a great help to remember
how many are in a great deal worso con
dition. You have read the sweet little
utory about the 'Shepherd of Salisbury
I'lain.' You know his little daughter felt
'so sorry for those people who hrfd no salt
to eut on their potatoes,' whilo they had 'a
dish fiiito full of it'
Cultivate the same spirit, my little girl,
and it will make even a dry crust look
mveeter than many a rich man's dain
i.s." I
Tub Ancibnt Dbotds. The Druids
wero divided into three different classes;
the Bards, who were the heroic historians;
tii o VateB, who were the sacred musicians
and pretended prophets; the third class
were called under the general name of
Druids, andporformed all the other olhcos
of religion, &o. They had females, who
where cullod Druidesses; these were also
divided into classes, each class having
dutios to perform essential to the interest
of the Order.
Ho far the Druids do not appear in a
light different from that or all other
ancient institutions; founded upon super
stition. But let us give the dark side of
thoir history. They sacrifice human vic
tims, which they burnt in large wicker
idols, made so capacious as to oontain a
multitude of persons at once, who were
thus consumed together. They lived in
woods, caves and hollow trees; their food
was acorns and berries, and their drink
water. "' '

Peculiar Customs of the Hebrews.
'This brief statement of Jewish cus
toms at tho close of lifo is of much in
terest The Jews imagine that the two
greatest acts that can be performed are
saying prayers for a dying man, and
following him to the grave; on the prin
;iplo that he who does another a favor in
diil'crent circumstances may be selfish,
from an expectation of its return, but
that in those cases the motive must bo
pure, as no suck expectations can bo
indulged. When a .lew is dying, it is no
unusual thing, thereforo, for his friends
and relations' to inform the whole neigh
borhood of the fact. A poor Jew, as woll
as a rich one, always has, .at such a time,
two nurses to attend and say prayers; ho
may have them night and day for months,
tho wholo .expense of which, together
with that of doctors. Ac, is dofrayed
from the treasure of the synagogue
Those who attend a Jew in his dying
moments are well acquainted with all the
symptoms of death; for, though burial
takeB place within .twenty four hours,
instances are very rare of persons being
buried alive. The departed lies on tho
same bed for one hour; a feather is put on
his lips (to be blown away if he should
breath), and, as it is reckoned an hour,
the Jews presont stop during that time;
they strip the oorpse and lay it on the
ground, or, in some cases, carry it to an
other room. A black cloth is now ob
tained from the synagogue to lay over
the corpse; a pewter plate with salt is
cencrallv nut on tho breast, which, they
say, keeps it from awolling; oil is put in a
vessel, and a cotton wich is inserted; a
basin of water, oovored with a clean
nnpkm, is brought lorth; and two watch
ers (provided by the synagogue, if tho
individual be poor) Bit by tho dead.
An hour before the timo of burial,
certain peoplo como from tho synagoguo
to wash and shroud tho copso, in the
ablution of which from forty to fifty
gallons of water may bo used. Before it
leaves the house, the husband for tho
wife, the wife for the husband, children
for parents, and parents tor children, Ac,
stand on one side the coffin, and the
clerk of the synagogue on the other, while,
as each relation leans over the coffin, the
clerk takes a knifo, makes a slit on the
right side of the male or female's upper
garment, about two inches long ana then
tears it two inches further. Tho gar
ments must be worn in this stato for
thirty-one days.
When any of the Jews assombled
cannot follow the corpse to tho gravo, a
pail of water and a jug are brought, with
which they may wash each other's hands.
The first takes the water and throws it
over tho hands of the next, three times,
but he must not touch them with tho
vessel; this is afterward placed on the
ground; when he who is washed takes it
up, and does the same for him who washed
him. and thus the process of ablution is
carried on through the whole.
The cofhns ot the rich and poor are
made of four deal boards, merely planed
over to prevent splinters running into the
hands. The shrouds are genorallv made
of wool; but somo of the more wealthy ate
buried in hno linen, ihe Jews have no
walking funerals; and no diifereaco is
apparent between thoso of tho poor and
the rich, except relatives or menus ot tho
latter should follow them in carriages. 1 1
is by no means uncommon for a corpse
to fee followed by a multitude, consisting
of from one hundred to one thousand
persons, as may be frequently witnessed,
at the East end of London whcro there
are several Jewish burying grounds.
Publicity is given to a caso of dissolution
in tiro ways. Ono is by its announce
ment in the synagogue; for, when a
person has died the clerk in tho midst of
tho prayer stops, and, with a loud voice,
mentions his namo, tho spot whcro tho
corpse lies, and the hour of intermont
The other is more remarkable. One ot
the Jews belonging to tho svnagoguo
goes into , the places crowded with nis
people, having a copper money-box in tho
shape of a half gallon cask, secured b 7 a
lock and key, with a nicho large enough
to admit ot a ponny pcice. Uio peculiar
sound of the box, when shaken, intimates
that some ono is dead, the Jews there
foro Hock around him, make every in
quiry, aud cast in tho box what they
please. This is nlwnyB dono unless the
departed was an illegitimate child, a
person of vory impure lifo or one grossly
negligent of Jewish forms. In this caso
seldom more than eight or nine follow
him to his grave. So infamous, indeed,
is it to be an oxcoption to the custom
just alluded to, that it is sometimes men
tioned many years after, as branding even
distant relations. When Jews quarrel,
it may be in the synagoguo, one will
sometimes say to the other, "1 know some
thing about you, don't unlock my lips, or
will disgrace you;" and, whon he is
dared to utter all ho knows, it is not un
common to reply If it cannot bo charged
on a nearer relation, "Whv, vour great
grandfather, or your fourth cousin died,
and the box did not go for biro." Fe
males rery rarely or novor attend a corpse
to the grave; but it is heart rending to
witness their mourning.
When the males retire all sit on the
ground, and a hard boiled egg is cut in
pieces among them. J heir posture is
continued for seven days, during which
visitors come, sometimes to the number
of one thousand, to afford consolation;
and, should the party visited be poor,
refreshment or money is usually given
secreuy. ine light placed at the side ot
the corpse is kept in for one and thirty
days (as Aaron was mourned for during
that time;) it is called the light of the
departed saint, and, according to the
clearness or dimness of the flame, they
determine its comfort or discomfort For
the first seven davs a congregation assem
bled night and morning; and every morn
ing the water .and napkin are changed,
under the idea that the Bpirit comes and
purifies himself with them. Every
anniversary, too, a light must burn in the
samo way for four and twenty hours : a
last must be kept lor that time, ana the
synagogue must be visited night and
morning to say ivodesh (prayers) in its
behalf.

The Bueyrus (0). Journal thug speaks
of the garao of billiards:
"Yes, sir, we can tell you all about
billiards. It is a game consisting of two
mon in their shirt sleeves, punching balls
about on a table, and presenting the
keeper with twenty cents, or as is most
commonly the caso in this country, telling
him to just mark it down. This last
montionod custom has given them tho
title of billiard markers, If you have a

Human Destiny. Ah, there is a
touching beauty in the radiant up-look of
& girl just crossing the limits of youth,
and commonoing her journey through
the oheokercd sphere of womanhood I It
is all dew-sparklo and morning glory to
her ardent, buoyant spirit, as she presses
forward exulting in blissful anticipations.
But the withering heat of the conflict of
lifo creeps on; the dew drops exhale; the
garlands of hope, shattered and dead,
strew tho path; and too often, ere noon
tide, tho clear brow and sweet smile are
exchanged for tbo weary look of one
longing for the evening rest, the twilight,
the night. Oh, may the good God give
his sleep early unto these many I
