My Gwa FJrcsidc.
Let others seek fr em pty joys.
At ball, oi Concert, rout, or play;
Whilst, fnr from fashion's idle noiee,
Her gilded domes, trappings gay,
I while the wintry eve away
'Twist bonk and lute, the hours divide;
And marvel how 1 e'er could stray
From thee my own fireside!
My own Fireside! Those simple words
Can bid the sweetest dreams arise;
Awaken feeling's tenderest chords.
And fill with tears of joy my eyes!
What is there my wild heart can price.
That doth not in thy sphere abide.
Hat' nt of my home-bred sympathies,
Myowu my owu Fireside;
A genlle form is near me now:
A small white hind is clasped in miue :
I g)iz upon her placid brow.
And ask waal joys can equal thine!
A babe, whose beauty's half divine.
In Bleep hi- mother's eyes dolh hide;
Wh re itiasy !oe s?ek a filler shrine,
Thau tlmu my Oivu ureaide?
WhatcareJ for ihe snl!en roar
Of winds without that ravage earth;
It doth but bid me prize the more
The sheitar of thy hallowed hearth
To ihowght of qnil blips givehirilli:
Then let the churlish tempest chide,
It cannot check the blnmeless mirth
That glads my own Fireside!
My refuge ever from the storm
Of this world's passion, strife nnd care:
Thongh thunder-clouds the sky deform, ,
Their fury cannot reach me there.
There all is cheerful, calm and fail.
Wrath, Envy, Milice. strife or Pride,
Hath never made its hated lair,
By thee my owu Fireside!
Thy preeincts are a charmed ring,
Where no harsh feeling dares intrude; . .
Where life's vexations lose theirst'ng;
Where even grief is half subdued;
And Peace, the halcyon loves to brood.
Then, let the pampered fool derido
I'll pay my debt of gratitude , - "
To thee my owu Fireside!
Shrine of my household deities!
Fair scene of my home's unanllied joys!
To thee my burthened spi h Hies,
When I'nrtune frowns, or care annoys;
Thine is the bliss that never cloys;
- The smile whose truth hath oft been tried;
What then, are this world's tinsel toys
To thee my own Firt-Bide?
Oh, may tho yearnings, fond and sweet
That bid my thoughts be all of thee,
Thus ever guide my wandering feet
To thy heart-soothing sanctuary!
Whala'er my future years may be;
Let joy or grief my late bettde;
Be still an Eden bright to me,

CA It IS IE ISA Y A CHRISTMAS
BY M1SKIE MAVNARD.
Sivett, blithuSMine Carrie Kay! How like
a siiRl'eum si-ems her prtst-ncc, as she flitted
house! What muiisc was
there in her cheerful song and rm-rry Isiitj'h.
Carrric was beautiful ; and strange had it been
had site reached her eighteenth year and not
discovered the fact; yet she valued beauty,
only as it secured influence, fur well she knew
tliiit 'no h.eart is free from Us dominion.-
She was ihe only child of wealthy parents.n ho
had bestowed upon their idolized daughter
every advantage wtnen weaali can ootain.
iVot a po-r lamiiy ii the htlle village of
C .hut biased the kind heart of the
beautiful Carrie. It was hard to tell which

Christmas was approaching with its merry !
rides and joyous 'files', and many a young
heait beat more quickly in the anticipated
pleasure. Teere was to be a Ball in the vil
lage for which Carrie had received an tnvita-
tion, for all were engerto secure for a partner
the village Belle. But, yet, in her own hap
piness, she forgot not that of others, and she
remembf red, that while the rich were pre
paring for the artiiicial wants, the poor were
economising in every way to procure some
unaccustomed luxury in honor of the occasion,
or still wots'-, vainly striving to kt-ep the
piercing wintry air from entering their dwell
ings, and many a want did she provide for,
many a j )fnl surprise prepare for such.
Chiisl'iins dav was ushened in !v a cloudless
s'kv, and lUe jlnlin ; sleigh-b. -lis promised a
delit Infill day lor all. At an early hour.

8. !-?, there a little coat, and other articles
nhich she v, ell knew would prove acceptable,
she passed through the village, 'reserving for
her last call the cottage of the Widow Page
and her daughier Ella, a fair girl of seven
teen, wiio, by her needle, supported her aged
mother and herself.
As Carrie- opened the donr, Alla's arms
were thrown round her, and "I wish you a
merry christmas," burst simultaneously from
the lips of the two irirls. As she stepped for
ward, and respectfully saluted the old lady,
the widow said : "Ah, Carrie, it is needless
for me to give you the usual greeting of the
day, for I tee by your countenance that you
are enjoying all I could wish you."
Carrie drew a chair near the fire, and plac
ing near her the emptied basket, then her
hood lightly upon the table, and 6pread her
bands to the blaze.
An air of neatness pervaded the humble
apartment :The rag carpet was carefully
swept, and the smalt table neatly brushed
from every speck of dust, while from the
hearth a cheerful fire spread its grateful
warmth toward the wvole.
The widow sat in her arm chair, and as she
gazod upon the young girls before her, how
strong was the contrast presented! Carrie,
her dark cheek blooming from her recent ex
ercise, her black eye beaming with animation,
and her wealth of raven ringlets nearly en
veloping her slight round form Ella, tho't
ful and serene, her sunny hair parted smooth
ly from a fair, open brow, through which per
ceptible beneath its transparent covering,
the delicate blue veins, and on her cheek the
faintest ting of rose showed itself as though
fearing to mar the "spiritual" expression of
her features. At length Carrie started up,
and opening her basket, presented first to the
widow a new cap and warm cloaa and bonnet;
then to Ella a press of firm warm Merino, with
gloves, ribbands, and other etecteras; then un
wrapping a paper, she held forth a nicely
drcssca towl Jor their Christmas Dinner.
lier errand completed, she chatted gaily
with the old lady, and even the thoughtful
Ella laughed joyously and thus tho morning
sped quickly away when Carrie started for
Dancing into the Parlor, whose, elegance
contrasted strangely with the humble abodes
she had visited. Carrie seated herself at
her Piano, and played several lively airs, in a
simple, easy style, then going to her room, she
placed the finishing touches to her evenings
dress, and thus passed the hours till twilight.
Evening arrives, and with it Carrie's escort
for the Ijall.
Il ii ry Luce was a young Lawyer in good
practice, and fast winning his way to fame and
fortune, Carrie's senior by six years. H had
now reached the age when young men in
proper circumstances begin to tliii.k of selec
ting a partner for hie, and highly gifted with
a love for the good and beautiful, was it "was
whispered among "tht neighbor's children"
that he had won the neart ot the village belle.
Hat ry was such an one as wins as by magic
the admiration of both young and old, and
Carrie s parents had long wished, if she must
leave them, to consign her to the care of Har
It was ahnppy circle who gathered around
the table nt Mr. Kay s, and many a witty an
ecdote appropriate to the time elicited a shout
Tho merry ringing bells announced that
the party were assembling, and Harry lifting
Carrie into the slemh, hall smothered in buffa
loes, the prancing black started at a quik pace
Onward they Hew, and soon outstriped the
tormost in the race, and drew up ahead.
1 he rest followed closely after, and fairly
acknowledging him victor, bounded up the
j wide stair case with mirth and kind feeling.
1 lie music troru the ballroom greeted their
ear, and soon they were all assembled. It
was a gay party, all the pretty girls and gal
lant beaux of the place were there; but con
spicuous among them all shone Hurry and his
tiVery beautiful looked Carrie Ray that eve
ning. A robe of fairy pink tissue, fell in airy
folds about her sylph-like figure, leaving un
covered her lovely arms, and displaying her
rounded neck nnd shoulders. On her arm
glistened a single bracelet, and among her
curbvwere wreathed a string ot pearls, a chnst
mast gift from her father.
Harry looked upou her with pride, and was
the happiest leilow in existence, ere he left
her at her father's door, now his own Carrie
by a promise that evening given.
It was soon rumored that Harry Luce was
going to bear away the viilage pet, and when
she made her farewell calls, many an unbid
den tear started to the eyes of those who so
long had known nnd loved her, and many a
blessing was invoked upon her young head.
And Carrie left her girlhood's home: the
father who loved, and the mother who had
watched over her, and though they wept as
parting with their only child, they felt they
were bestowing her upon one every way wor
thy the the treasure.
Harry's location was twenty miles distant,
but she was to visit home often, and ahove
all to come with Santa-Claus, and her little
favorites 6miled through their tears, as tley
"Carrie will come again next Christmas."
A ArVoxDEttFU Clock. Towards the end of
l!ir sixteemh century J.ivuet Droz a Swis3
clock maker, orrie J to 1'Vrdiri tn 1 tbe Catho
lic King of Spain, a clock, was ths wo ider of
all Europe. Th king paid the large sum of
tive hundred louts (or about two thousand
two hundrod dollars) for it, and when it ar
rived, gathered his most illustrious noblemen
to look at its marvellous works. The clock
represented a landscape, and when it struck
the hour, a shc-pherrd issued from behind
some rock, and played six diiferent tunes up
on his flute, while his dog very naturaly fawn
ed upon him. To show the king that the dog
was faithful, as well as affectionate. Droz
told him to touch the fruit in a basket by the
side of the shephard. The king laid hold of
apple, and the dog at once, spraug at his hand,
balking so naturuliy, that a spaniel in the
room replied with great ferocity, and showed
sins of fight. At this all the court left, cry
ing out, "dorcery!" and there was onlv left
tlie king and the minister of the navy. The
king asked the shephard what time it was?
1'he clockmaker told him that he did not
uudi rst:md Spanish; but if he would ask him
in French, he would reply. The king then
put his question in French when the shepherd
instantlv replied. This was too much for
minister of the navy and lie instantly ran away.
The poor clock maker was in danger of being
burnt for a sorcer, but hu explained the won
der to the grand inquisitor, who was convin
ced that instead of being tho work of evil
spirits, it is only the result of great ingenuity.
JEST Lately, as a gentleman was examining
a desk, which had stood in an -out-building
for a long time, he found a small' bag, which
he thought a shot bag; but on taking it up,
the bottom came out, and to his great sur
prise out rolled five hundred gold pieces.
After counting them, he said he was very
sorry that he had not found them twenty
years soone, that be might have bad the in
terest of them also daring that period.

A religion that does not constrain a man
to pay his just debts, when he has the ability
to do it, is worth nothing. That he can escape
his liabilities through some defect of human

It is mentioned in Robert's life of Hannah
Moore, that in 1783, Hannah Moore sat next
to Dr. Johnson at a dinner party at the Bish

0 how sweet a word is hom. Children
who love home und seek their pleasures there,
very seldom go astray. It is Christianity that
has made home what it is; and without re
ligion half its charms are absent.
No matter how dark and cold it is without,
all is light and warmth within. The storm
may rage, and the sleet rattle against the
walls, but Providence shelters you in the
bosom of your best earthly friends. What
cause tor thankfulness is here! As you en

through whose grace they are continued to
Before 1 was as old as you now are, I had
begun to look at books of poet ry. Well do I
remember the old volume of Cowper's task,

what this Christian poets savs ot winter eve
ning pleasures. A thousand times have I
felt those pleasures increased by the reckiec
tion of his lines:
Now slir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fa-l the curtains: wheel Ihe sofa round:
And while the bubbling and loud hissing urn
ThroiA-s up a staemy colmn, and the cups,
That cheer but inebriate, wait on each.
So let us welcome peaceful evening in;
If you learn to love such evenings, and
to think the company of parents, brothers.and
sisters the best company in the world, you will
have every day an amount of real pleasure
which is unknown to those who go to operas,
playhouses, and crowded parties. - You will
not, indeed, become a fashionable young lady.
but you will be wiser and happier than any
one was ever nade by fashion. The study
of good books, and especially of God s inspir
ed ivord, will lay a foundation for joy which
will last all your life time, and will not grow
less when wealth, and youth and beauty, and
friends have departed.
Winter pleasures are not, however, confin
ed to the evening. They belong to morning'
noon and night In warmer seasons we go
nut and learn more of nature and things
abroad; in winter we converse with dear
friends, with friends, with books, and with our
selves. Winter is the time for study. Try
to make it your entertainment Determine
to improve your mind, and to constantly learn
ing something that you never knew before.
Study with alacrity and cheerfulness, and
you will find it less injurious to your health
than to tret over your books, l ou will learn
faster, and be more agreeable to all about
I our brothers will teach you many a health

you must not be so delicate as to house your
self merely because it is cold. There is noth
ing better for a young lady than a rapid walk
on the frozen ground when the air is cold and
bracing. W hen she returns, she feels bright
er all the rest of the day.
Make it one of your pleasures to remember
the poor in this cold season. It is the time
of their greatest want and suffering. Think
of the half naked children that might be cloth
ed with what you often waste. Your fingers
cannot be better employed than in working
for them. They will remember you for it ev

Dorcas, who lived and died at Joppa. 'She

by weeping and showing the garments and
coats which Dorcas made while she was with

W This little poem has often drawn sweet
pictures of kindness for us. The hgure is
beautiful and very sweetly expressed;
A little spring had lost its way,
Amid the tern and grass;
A passing stranger scooped a well,
Where weary men might turn;
He walled it in, and hung with care
A ladle at tun brink ;
' He thought not of the deed he did.
But judged that toil might drink.
He passed again and lo! the well.
By summer never dried.
Had cooled ten thousand parching tongues,
And saved a life besides.
An Indian chieftain, during the early se

Now man needs the friend and brother,
Not to-morrow, but to-day
But we must love one another,
Love we must, and lovealway.
Not the wise, not the strong-hearted
Human hearts yearn not for such;
Better is its love imparted
To the tempted over-much.
Love the weak and tendril-yielding,
Who else succorless were left
Who imploringly ask shielding
Ere they be of strength bereft. .

From the shame, remorse, and wo?

cases this morning, to a slim, nervous looking
creature, in the prisoners's dock.
limothy stood up, but instead ol casting
his eyes towards tho Mayor, he kept them
