Pipes of tlio misty moorland,
Voice vf the glen and hill,
The drone of highland torrenl,
The song of lowland rill !
Not the braes of broom and heather,
Ncr the mountain dark vith ratf
Xor maiden bower, nor border tower,
Hare heard vour sweetest strain !
IVar .o the lowland reaper,
And plaided mountaineer,
To the cottage and the castle
The Scottish pipes are dear,
Sweet sounds tho ancient pibroch,
OVr mountain, loch aud glade;
Hut the sweetest of all music
The Pipes at Lucknow played.
P.iy by flay the Indian tiger
Louder yelled, and nearer crept ;
Hound and round the jungle serpent,
Xear and nearer circles swept.
" Pray for rescue, wives and mothers
Pray to-day !" the soldier paid,
u 'JVntorrow, doath's bctwren us,
Aud the wrong and shame we dread."
Uh ihey listened, looked and waited,
Till their hope became despair,
And dho sobs of low bewailing
Filled the pauses of their prayer.
Then up spake a Scottish maiden,
Willi Iter ear upon the ground ;
" Pinna ye hear it dinna yo hear it ?
The pipes o' lluveloek sound !'
llusrhed t'ii"WuiHb.d man his trrwaniu ;
llush'-d thewitV her little ones ;
Al ne they h'-md tho drum rwll,
And the roar of Se y guns.
Put to fu-'jr.ds of home and childhood
The Highland car was true;
" Diau ijou hear it? 'tis the .vb.ii.t
AVill ye no believe it noo V
Like tlie march of soundless music
Through tho vision of the seer,
More of fetding than of hearing,
(if the 'heart than of the tar,
She knew t lie drooping pibroch,
She knew the Campbell's call;
u Hark ! hear ye no MacGrcgor's
The grandest u them all?"
Oh ! they listened dumb and breathless,
And they caught the sound at last;
paint and far beyond the (Joointee
Hose and Ml the piper's blast.'
Then a burst of wild thanksgiving
Mingled woman's voico and man's;
" IJed be praised ! The march of I Jave
The juping of the clans !
Louder, nrarr, fierce as vengeance,
,Shar and shrill as swords iA htritV,
Come the wild MacO regor's clan-call,
Stinging all the air to strife.
But Tthcn the far off dust cloud
To plaided legions grew,
Full tenderly foul biithcsomely
The pipes of rescue blew !
Pound the silver domes of Lucknow,
Pound red Dowan's golden shrine,
Prcathed the air to Priton's dearest,
The air of Auld Lang Syne.
O'er -the cruel loll of war-drums
Pose that sweet and homelike strain,
And the tartan clove tke turban,
As the Ooomtco cleaves the plain.
T)ear to tho lowiand reaper
And plaided mountaineer,
To the cottage and the castle,
Tlio piper's song is dear
Sweet sound the Gaelic pibroch
O'er mountain, glen and glado,
Put the sweetest of all music
The pipes at Lucknow played.

IN THRKK HAS Y LKSSONS.
There are certain methods of augment
iug domestic discomfort with fatal facili
ty; and as it is possible that one young
womau in ten thousand is ignorant of the
w:vs and means. I need make no apology,
I think, for "iiaki'ig an iteration for her
In the first place, my very ignorant
young friend, when your husband takes
li-newspaper in tne inorning, insiuau
of your hand, as mav possibly happen,
turn your face resolutely to the wall, bite
your finger-nails, or scratch on the witi-dow-pane
first bulh-riently to attract atten
tion. When your natural hm-baud looks
up and inquires what is the matter, as
may possibly happen on the "first trial,
scratch or bite, as the case may be, more
pertiu iciously. If he puts down the pa
per, and comes to vou and such behav
ior, it has been computed, mauifests itself
j about once in a century writhe yoursclt
out of his arms ; and when his inquiry as
to what is the matter is repeated which
you may safely calculate upon say
' Xothitfj."' and however often the repe
tition occur, ilon't for your life relax a
muscle, or make any other reply. Pout
ing ts a m o. t succcssiui metnou ol open
ing the eyes of the husband to the sweet
ness of your temper, of asserting your dig
nity, and the impossibility of condescend
ing from it, and also eliciting the admira
tion due to it.
When breakfast is ready pretend you
don't hear the bell, and not till you
have been reminded of it four or live
times must you show any disposition to
rise from the humble footstool cn which
you are contemplating the wall paper, or
the pattern of tue carpet itt the darkest
corner of the room. When you are per
suaded that the patience of your monster
of a husband has been .stretched to its ut-
, most limit, push him angrily from you if
he oilers to assi.t jou, brush roughly past
hint, and indicate, by looks na well as
acts, -that you will tee him in purgatory
4 before you accept any of Lvs assistance
until, nut ecu, no nu u.i -....u..,
! and, furthermore, paid for it, by the prc-
i;cr.tatin ot MlV. gown, a diamond ring,
a bracelet, or some equally valuable arti
cle by which pardons tor like oftvnees arc
When you arc seated at the breakfast
table, begin to write on your plate with
the handle of your fork, in such a way as
.-hall indicate that never in the course of
your natural life do you expect to have
any other use for a fork. If it occurs to
you to make the letters you shape spell
your maiden name, it will be a source of
extreme gratification to yourself, aud not
the slightest annoyance to any other indi
vidual. When your coffee is Icing prepared,
give directions, in a voice so low that no
body can understand you, to have it "rrry
weak" thereby indicating to your hus
band that your delicate nerves have un
dergone a horrible slioek.
If your landlady or other person inako
inquiry as to your condition, answer, de
jectedly, that" you have a headache
which, from the sanction of common con
sent, means everything and nothing in
particular. The headache leaves the pre
sumption open that your heart is ossify
ing, your lungs decomposing, or your en
tire humanity cancerous.
Xo wife should omit to got the defini
tion of headache perfectly.
When your husband offers you beef
steak, omelet, or other appetizing relish,
give him to understand that he is heap
ing insult upon injury. At the same
time your intercourse with him as far as
words go, must ho excessively polite.
Vou must say 4 Thank you Sir," so inge
niously as to make it seem as if you said,
"The deuce take you !" It can be done,
as might be shown by ten thousand exam
ples. Sip your coffee with your tea-spoon,
as if you uouM swallow a little of it if
you possibly could ; and take up a crumb
of dry toast it will show forth so elo
quently your disposition to appear better

When lie rattles the door-key, as he prob
bly will, one parting glance, don't look
toward him, but sway yourself back and
forward in your rot'kirijr-ehp.ir, and not
till he finally says " Good-morning!" must
you bring to bear upon him the condem
nation of your reproachful eyes. As you
hear his retiring footsteps you will natu
rally listen yery eagerly in expectation of
his return, but he will not come back.

quite through your unreasonable affecta -
tions and expectation-, and will treat vou
accordingly, you will hare arrived at about
as comfortable a state of torment as can
reasonably be anticipated in the earlier
phases of connubial felicity; and you can
pass the day profitably, which you will
thus have made as long as three days usu
ally arc, in further qualifying yourself
to become your own tormentor.

For the introduction of these alt' n rotii cs
into treatment no definite rules can be
laid down. If, however, the wife have
an ordinary decree of discernment and
tact no diificulty will present itself. An
outline of conduct may be indicated not
withstanding. A very happy method of lightening
domestic infelicity has been found to be
frequent references to the wider liberties
and dearer pleasures of girlish days.

would be if you could but have your j
days of freedom back again, and shake your
heni and sigh. 1 his is all calculated to
awaken uneasy emotions iu the bosom of
your husband, which will presently com
municate themelvcs to yourself. When
asked if you go hero or there, do thus or
so, answer, regretfully, that you osnl to,
and indicate that you arc not jKnuiti' to
do any thing, or go to any phV.e, since
you have put on marriage bond. Jf your
husband asks you to sing or read to him,
as in the days gone by, answered that you
havo nothing to read; say outright, you
don't want to sing.; yawn, and indicate
iu all ways that reading and singing to
him arc old storieF. If he manifests a dis
position to converse, talk of .whict you
used in your father's house, and make
frequent mcutiou of the privations you
never expected to have to suffer. Xo matter
what the humility of your former state
or what the elevation and affluence of
your present one, there may be elicited
unfavorable contrast, if you bend your
energies to the searching of them out.
Abstain rigidly from the use of auy of
those little courtesies by which the regard
of your husband was first Won, neglect,
to slovenliness, if you will, those personal
renovations and adornmeuts which the
eyes of your girlhood delighted iu ; slip
pers down at the heel ; stockings soiled
and wrinkled about the a-n-kle ; hair un
combed ; and morning dress with tassels,
ribbons, and laces flying, have been
found to be effectual methods of aliena
ting regard. To insure complete success
tho morning dress must be worn nil day ;
at dinner an old shavl or clotk may be
thrown over it with good effect. What
ever your husband's order of beauty, de
preciate it by talking admiringly of per
sons of an entirely different style espec
ially of old sweethearts and to those you
may refer very often, intimating that yos
have had a thousand, any of whom it is
reasonable to mpnose, you might have
been infinitely happier than you are.
When you find your purse empty don't
say any thing about it, that being one of
thoso things that husbands arc expected
to know without any earthly intimation.
Ucfiiso all his invitations to go out with
out regret or apology; Continue to '.Tear
the old morning-dress into the evening,
and, after this sulkincsa baa been preserv
ed in for three or four months, select
some Sunday morning when your
husband is preparing for church in quiet
and congenial frame of mind, smother
your eyes in a towel and set down to the
enjoyment of a fjood cry I After a little
experience no difficulty will be found in
the getting up cf ono of these pleasant
little family episodes. Crowd into jour
memory all the light, disappointments,
and vcxutiotsi of your whole life, and
keep clearly in view the effect to be
wrought upon vmr husband, for, "when
ho think?, gcod cunning man, Lis hr.rvcst

On the whole, my young learner,
whether vour husband goes to church
alone, leaving you to the comforts of your
darkcnc-tL room and towel, or whether
he throws himself on the sofa, cover his
face with the newspaper, and sleeps to
the tune of your sobbing, 1 think 1 may

Having established a conviction of your
light to know whatever you desire to
kuow, proceed something in this wise.
Or, having failed of the aforesaid convic
tion, set up a pretense, and take by main
force every citadel of privacy you can bat
ter into. In order to make some show of
justification, select an evening when by
chance, accident, or business detention,
your husband returns home a little Jater
than usual, and no matter whether it be
five, ten, or twenty minutes later, use
them for " nursing your wrath, and keep
