MY GOD DIRECTS THE STORM.
The spirit of the tempest shook
His wing of raven liue ,
Above the sen, and hollow winds
Howled o'er the waters Hue. ..
Up rose the mountain b'llows high
And swept a stormy poll);
Darkness and terror mingled there
N Their ministry of wrath.
A lonely bark, by bounding seat,
Tost wildly to end fro, .
. Dat-h'd p'er the billows foaming brow,
To fcarfnLilrntliu bnlnw. .
irash echoed crash ! the quivering spars
JroKo o'er the leaning side,
And left the bark a shattered wreck,
The stormy waves to ride.
The sturdy seaman struggled bard
To hold the yielding helm,
And keep the ship's prow to the surge,
i That threatened to o'crwhelui. .
And when the plunging ruin spurned
Their impotent control,
They flew to drown their gloomy fear
I n the accursed bowl.
Upon the raging ocean then,
Helpless was left the bark.
To the wild iercy of the waves,
. Amiu the tempest dark.
Upon the deck alone there stood
" A man of courage high ;
A hero, from whose boEom fear
Had never drawn a sigh.
With folding arms, erect he stood,
His countenance was mild,
And, calmly gazing on the scene,
He bowed his head and smiled.
A wild shriek from the cabin rose,
Up rushed his beauteous bride ;
With locks dishevelled, and in tears,
She trembled at his side.
O ! why, 'my love, upon thy lip,'
She cried, ' doth play that smle,
When all is gloom and terror here,
And I must weep the while V
No word the warrior spoke, but ho
Drew from beneath hisveKt
A poignard bright, and placed its point
Against her heaving breast.
She started not, nor shrieked in dread,
As she had ehrieked before ;
Hut stood astonished and surveyed
His tranquil features o'er.
Now why,' he asked, 'dost thou not start
May not thy blood be spilt 1
"V ith sweet composure she replied,
My Jutland holds the hilt!'
' ' Dost wonder, then, that 1 nm calm,
That fear shakes not my form 1
I ne'er can tremble while J know

AUNT NABBY'S STEWED GOOSE.
It was my Aunt Nabby's birth day,
and she was bent upon having a stewed

and salt pork to match. Pollijah," said
she to me, 'be'ent we got a goose 'bout

snuffed up the sweet savors of the pre

Next to the minister came the squire; he
opened the front door, and seeing no pne
but me, " Pollijah,", said he, " when 'ill
that goose be done ? 'cause I'm everlastin
busy settlin that hay-mow case, and I'd
like to know." 4 Ready now, squire,' an
swered the parson, opening the kitchen
door, " and i guess it's an uncommon fine
goose too, so walk in and let us have a
little chat." The squire entered. and he
and the minister had a considerable spell
of conversation about the hay-mow case
the case was this : AbijahBeggs got leave
to carry his hay across widow Stoke's
field to the road; well, this hay-mow
dropped off the poles," and the widow
Stoke's claimed it as a waif and stray.-
" Now," says the squire,' " I conceit the
chief pint in this case iii here has wid
ow Stoke's a right to the hay ? ' Now
this 'ill depend, you see, 'pon 'nother
pint, tofwit, videlcit does the hay be

says she, every man in the country's free,
and therefore every man in the country's
a king, just as far as his farm goes ; now
the king, all allow, has a right to waifs
and straysand so, says widow Stoke's,
thatare hay's mine. But says 'Bijab, and
by jinks it's a cute argument; but says he,
though every man in this land of liberty 's
a free man, yet that does'nt prove that
every woman is ;- and per contra, we
know that women don't vole, and of
course an't free; so says he, the hay an't
hern. But's a puzzlin case an't it?" -"
Well, now,",ariswered the minister, "it
strikes me that hay an't astray." ' Well,'
said the squire, 'that's a pint I never
thinked of. r Just then in come the dea
con, and after him the sexton, and so on,
till pretty much all the aristocratic de
mocracy of the village had assembled.
And then, in bustled aunt Nabby, awful
fine, I tell you ; and then Susanna and Ca
to began to bring in the dinner, and while
they were doing that, the company all
took a stiffglass of grog by way of appe
tite, and then stroked down their faces
and looked at the tabb ; and there was a
pig roast and stuffed, and a line of veal,
and two old hens, and " an everlasting
sight of all kinds of sarce,' and pies, and
puddings, and doughnuts, and cider, and
current wine.and above all at the head of
the table, the dish in which lay the hero
of the day, 'that are goose,' smothered in

onions, and utterly ma Deneatn uie ioaa
of carrots and cabbages. The seat next

and all sat down. 1 he squire nourished
his fork and pounced upon the pig; the
deacon tackled too at the veal ; while the
sexton went seriously to work to exhume
a piece of baked pork from amid an ava
lanche of beans. The minister with a
spoon gently stirred away a few carrots
and onions, in hopes of comming at the

aunt Nabby. " it's particular fat and
tender,' she replied " I picked it myself
from a whole heap.' And still the min

upon a hard surface. " A skewer, I
guess,' he said, and plunging his fork in
to the onion mass, he struggled to raise
the iron handle with which he had joined

the squire, "that that are was an old

deacon. Still the minister struggled
and still the goose resited aunt Nabby
grew nervous the more the minister
struggled the more the goose would not
come I saw my aunt's eye dilating, her
hand moved ugly, and then pounce.
just when the minister thought he had
conquered the enemy, my aunt's claw
drove the onions aside, and dragging
forth a tailor's goose, held it at arm's
length before the company: the sqire had
just raised the pig upon his fork, then
seeiug my aunt s discovery, he dropped
it, and the dish was kocked all to smash ;
the sexton had drawn his beans to the
edge of the table another pull as he saw
dropped the cause of all this evil, and
there went another blatc.
The company dined elsewhere, and
next Sunday the minister declined prea

as he did so, that she departed, poor crit

Consequences ofEruoh. Take care
what thou sowest, as if thou wert taking
care for eternity. That sowing, of
which the scripture speaketh, what is it ?
Yesterday, perhaps, some evil tempta
tion came upon you the opportunity of
unrighteous gain, or ot unhallowed in
dulgence, came, either in the sphere of
business, or of pleasure, of society, or of
solitude. Jt you yielded to it, then and
there, did you plant a seed of bitterness
and sorrow. To-morrow, it may be,
will threaten discovery ; and agitated,
alarmed, you will cover the sin, and bu
ry it deeper, in falsehood and hypocrisy.
In the hiding bosom, in the fruitful soil of
kindred vices, that sin does not, but
thrives and grows ; and other, and still
other germs of evil gather around the
accursed root, till from that single seed
of corruption, there springs up in the
soul all that is horrible in habitual lying,
knavery, or vice. Long before such a
life comes to its close, its poor victim
may have advanced within the very pre
cincts of hell. Yes, the hell of debt, of
of disease, of ignominy, or of remorse,
may gather its shadows around ihe steps
of the transgressor even on earth ; and
yet these if holy scriptur be unerring
and sure experience be prophetic these
are , out the beginnings of sorrows.
The evil deed may be done alas I in a
moment in one fatal moment; but con
science never dies; memory never
sleeps; guilt never can become inno
cence ; and remorse can never, never
whisper peace. Pardon may come from
heaven ; but self-forgiveness may never
come. " ' ',' ;. .v " "
