THE LIGHT AT HOME.
The light at home, how bright it beams,
When evening shades around us fall !
And from the lattice, far it gleams
To love, and rest, and comfort call.
When wearied with the toils of day,
And strife for glory, gold, or fame,
How sweet to seek the quiet way,
Where our loving lips will lisp our name,
Around the light at home.
When through the dark and stormy night
Tho wayward wanderer homeward hies,
How cheering is that twinkling light
W hich, through the forest gloom, he spies!
It is the light at home he feels .
That loving hearts will greet him there ;
And softly through his bosom steals
The joy that banishes his care,
Around the light at home.
The light at home 1 whene'er at last
It greets the seamen through the storm,
He feels no more the chilling blast
That beats upon his manly form.
Long years upon the sea have fled
Sine dear ones gave a parting kiss,
But tLe sad tears which then were shed,
Will now be paid with rapturous bliss,
Around tke light at home.
The light of home! how still and sweet
It peeps frm yonder cottage door,
The weary ll" to ireeti
When the rough tnU of day are o'er.
Sad is the soul that does not know
The blessings that the beams impart
The cheerful hopes and joys that flow,
And lighten up the heaviest heart,
Around the light at home.

BEAUTY AT B1LJ-.IABDS.
There is a lady in this case.
For three days she had sat opposite
me at the table of the pleasantest of
White Mountain resorts, (of course I
give no hint as tC ich that is tastes
(liffer "land I had gradually become en
thralled. Her beauty was dazzling, and
her name was Tarlingford. For the
first of these items I was indebted to my
own intelligence; for the second to my
hotel register, which also informed me
she was from New York.
I, too, was from New York; a coinci
dence too startling to be calmly over
looked. Our acquaintance bean oddly. One
a tiara boiled e"s,
and wondering if I
could perforate Ler affections with any
thing, like the success which had fol
lowed my fork aa it penetrated the
shell before me, when I felt a tiniid
touch upon my toe, thrilling me from
end to cud like a telegraph wire when
the insulation is perfect. I looked up,
and detected a pink flush making its way
brow ward, on the lovely countenance
across lh table.
"I bec your pardon," said I, with
much concern, 9
"It was my fault, sir, excuse one,"
said sh, permitting the pink flush to
"iShall 1 paes the buttered toast?"
"Muffins, if you please," said she, and
so sweetly that I was blinded to the ab
sence of sugar in my second cup of cof
fee. I was confused by this incident.
Many men would by an affectation of
sudden appetite have concealed their
disquietude, or by bullying the waiter or
by abrupt departure from the scene. I
did neither. I felt I had a right to be
confused, and gloried in i&
Very soon Miss Tarlingford withdrew,
and 1 experienced an aching void
within, which chops and fritters had no
power to replenish.
I opened a chambermaid's heart with
a half dollar, and the treasures of her
knowledge were revealed to me. The
beaty and her party were to remain a
fortnight. Among her companions
there were no males except a youthful
Later in the morning I heard the
tinkling of the pianoforte. Music has
soothine charms for me, though I have
not a savage breast. 1 drew near, and
found Misb Tarlingford trifling with the
keys those keys which lock together
so many chains of human sympathy.
She rose and gave out demonstrations of
impending disappearance. I inter
posed "Pray coutinue. I am famished tor
music, and came especially to listen."
It is hardly worth while."
"llow eats you say so? It is I who
knowest what I need."
"1 will play for vou then."
And she did. This was wonderful.
Usually a lone and painful struggle pre
cedes feminiue acituiescence on such oc
casions. Hepe.ited refusals, declarations
of incapacity, partial consent vouchsafed
andtheu way waruly withdrawn, poutings,
head-tossing, ieebier murmurs of disin
clinations, and final reluctant yielding
form the fashionable order of proceed
ing. The charm of it all is, that the
original intention is the same as the ul
timate action. Whence, then, this
folly? Having been many times bored
by this sort of thing, I was now corres
pondingly gladdened by the contrast.
Miss larlingtord played well, and I
"Pretty well," she answered frankly,
"but not so well as I could wish."
Shock number two. It is customary
in good society for tolerable performers
to disavow all praises (secretly yearn
ing for more) and to assail with invec
tive their own artistic accomplishments.
Here was a young lady who played
well and had the hardihood to acknowl
edge it. This rather took away my
breath and a vacum began to come un
der my waistcoat.
si or three blissful days MiS3 Tarling
ford and I were seldom separated. Her
sister a pale sedate maiden of amiable
appearance, and her brother, a small rude
boy of intrusive habits and unguarded
speech, I consentend to undergo, forthe
sake of conventional necessity. To the
mother of the Tarlinjjfords additional
respect seemed due, and was accorded
Three blissful days of sunshine,
meadowy TamblcB, forest explorations,
the majestic tranquility of Nature
spiced with the sauce of flirtation, or
something stronger. Sometimes we
took our morning happiness on foot,
sometimes our evening rapture in an
open wagon at two forty.
The puerile Tarlingford, interfering
at first was summarily crushed. Aspi
ring to equestrian distinctions, he
wrought upon maternal indulgence, un
til, not without misgivings, maternal
anxiety was stifled, and, with injunc
tions that we should hover protctingly
near him, he was sent forth a thorn in
our sides. In half an hour he was ac
cidently remembered, and was nowhere
in view; so we pursued our way, well
pleased. He had droppod quietly off
at jthe first canter, into a miry slough.
and had- returnedaohhinalv covered
with mortification and mud, to tho arms
of his parent. Keen questioning at
dinner was the result.
"Why did you so neglect him?" de
manded fond mama,adding reproachfully,
"The child's life might have been sacri
"Mother, we looked for him and he
was gone. Why didn't he cry out?"
"So I did," shouted this youth of open
speech, "but you two had your heads to
gether, laughing and talking like any
thing, and couldn't hear, I Buppose."
( vv itn a juvenile sneer.)
" Oh, fie, Walter ! Now I think .vou

" Don t say that, mother, it would be
a punishment too severe," said the mis
chievous little pale sister in tones of
pity, and her face brimming with mirth.
Everybody laughed, and peace was
On the third evening, misery came id
me in an envelope post marked New

dulcified, have their value, which is

such bewildering and insiducus power
of maidenly enchantment be exercised as
at the billiard-table; especially when the
enchantress is utterly ignorant of the
duties required of her, and confidingly
seeks manly encouragement and guid
ance. Controlled by the hand of beauty,
the cue becomes a magic wand, and the
balls are no longer bits of inanimate
ivory, but, poked restlessly hither and

Looking about her with sidelong glances
and shrugs of disgust, she finally mus
tered courage to put on her "night cap,"
which operation was almost too much
lor hor. Ihis feat accomplished, she
again cast frightened glances at her sur-
rounders, obviously afraid to proceed
further. At this juncture the conduc
tor came in, and in whispers heard in
the remotest part of the cars, she indig
nantly interrogated him to know if there
were "no curtains in the house." 'Cer
tainly ma'am," said the affable conduc
tor, who hastened to procure some- at
which she appeared exceedingly grateful.
Ihey were soon drawn, and she r.roceed-
ed to make herself as coniforteole as the
nature of the circumstances allowed.

with a deal of boasting and a great waste
of words, time and breath, that he is
"going to do it." And while he is thus
"going to do it," somebody else who is
not suspected of "going to do it" does it
and reaps the reward. The man who is
