CORN SONG.
BY J. G. WHITTIER.
Hi-ap liieli the farmor's wintry lioard !
Heap high the jrolden corn ! ,
Xo rielitT gitt lias Atittumi uoufed
From out the lavish liom!
Let other lantlg exultlnjr. glean
The apple from the pine
The orange from Its jivpy green
The clutter from the vine.
We betti-r love the hearty gift
Our ruggml vales bestow.
To cheer un when the ft or in Khali drift
Our harvest liclil with show.
Through vales ofgras nnd mends of flowers
Our ploiigliK their furrow nmde,
While oil the hills the miii ami showers ,
Of changeful April played.
We dropiied the seed o'er hill aud plain,
Beneath the aim of May.
And frightened from oxi'r sprouting grain
The robber trow s aw ay.
All though the long bright rtnvs of June,
It- leave grew bright ai d Iiiir.
And waved in liot tnidMuimier noon,--
Its soft and yellow hair.
' -. . -,
And now with Autumn's moonlit eves,
Its harvest times has come, 1
We pluck awny Its frosted leaves,
And dear iu treasures home. , ,
There richer then the fabled gifts,
Appellrtshowemi of old.
Fair hands the broken grain shall sift,
Aim Kiieau us meat orgoiu.
Let vapid idlers loll in gtlfr. . , '
Around the eo-t I v Lonnl;
Olve us tire howl of soup and milk,
uy nomespun neauty pound.
Then ulianie on all the proud and vain, .
Whose folly laughs to scorn .
The blessings of our hardy grain,
Our wealth of golden corn.
Let earth withhold her goodly roof,.
Let mildew blight the rys
Give to the worm the orchard's fruit,'.
The wheat HoUh to the ily ;
But let the good old crop adorn
The hills our fathers trod ;
Still let us for Ills golden corn
bend up our thanks to God. '
SOMETHING CHEAP.
There's not a cheaper thing ou earth, ' '
Nor yet one halrso dear;
'Tis wtutli more then distinguished birth,
Or thousands gained a year;
It lends the day a new delight, ,
'Tis virtue's firmest shield.
And adds more beauty to the night'.
Thau all the stars may yield.
It mrketli poverty content,
To sorrow whispers peace ;
It i a gilt from heaven that's sent
For mortals to li c ease.
It meets you with a smile at morn,
It lulls us to repute ;
A flower for peer and peasent born
And every-blootning rose.
, . , - -- -
A charm to banUh gncf way, -
To snatch the frown from ciire;
Turn tears totmiles, make dullness gav i
Spread glaifyicsa eyery where) it J
And yet, 'tis choai) assuniuirr'sdvAv';
That gems the iilly's breast
A talisman for love its truo ,. .
As ever man pi;s-cssi d.
What may this woudefous spirit be,
With power unherd before
This charm this bright dilinity ?
Good temper nothing more?
Good temper! the most blessed gift
That mortal homeward brings,
And can the poorest peasent lilt
To bliss unknown to king.-.
SOMETHING CHEAP. Miscellaneous.
SOMETHING CHEAP. Miscellaneous. HOW MR. KEITH MANAGED.
"Man's work is from sun to sun.
but woman's work is never done, (
quoted Mrs. Keith. j
She had just finished her work for j
the evening, every thing was sided,
and she was taking up her .sewingx!
when Mr. Keith upset a 'vineger j
bottle and a bowl of gravy in the '
kitchen cupboard, rumaging after a '
which was in his pocket all
the time.
Mrs. Keith relinquished her idea
out to set matters in order again, j
Keith followed to oversee her ,
a habit some men have. ; -j
"I ; wish you would bo a little '
more careful, Henry. You do not
realize how many things I have to ;
see to." j
"Humph !"; said Mr. Keith sitting, 1
down in a basket of freshly ironed ;
clothes ; "I never would complain I
of such a trifle as that ! If I didn't i
know, 1 should think all the women
teaiA in clo t-ni-i. M
"And you would
Henry. You haven't
be
the
correct,
faintest
r
"Nonsense, Mary! ' Why,'I could
do your work, and three times as
much more, and get all through at
ten o'clock!"
"Could you, indeed?"
"To be sure, if you would only
give me the chance of it."
"You shall have it," said Mrs.
Keith, quietly. I have Jong wan
ted to visit my Aunt Susan. I will
do so now, ,an,d jou. may kepp house.
I shall', have . to cook' up i some
thing": ..' 7 '
"As if t couldnt cook I You will
dr nothing of: the kind, Mary, I
shall live like a prince, and you will
see how.'nie . I;t will keep eyery I
and Hie room decidedly smoky. .
'I'll go down cellar and bring up
some coal,' said he, nnd started
briskly down tho stairs. On the
second step he put his foot through
a rip in his dress skirt stumbled
and fell to the bottom of tho cellar
smashing a basket of eggs knock
knife ing over a shelf loaded with pans
his head, 'how do the women man
Mr. age with these infernal , long
dresses? I shall break my , neck
with this set!'
The fire made again, Mr. Keith
bethought him of dinner. He
looked at his time piece ; it was one
o'clock. Almost time for callers,
What should he. have for dinner?
He had heard his wife say that a
rice pudding and boiled potatoes,
thing. , You will hardly know ,the
house when you return." . i
"I dare say," remarked Mrs. Keith;
"but when can I go ?" -,', t
"To-morrow, if you like."
. "And you are 6ure ygu can man
age!" ' , -
"Sure !" what a look he gave her J
"you shall sec." ' ' ' '.( i
Mrs. .Keith laughed a little to
herself when her husband left her
at the derot,'nd turned his steps
homeward to- clear the breakfast
thhijrs mid 'prepare- dinner. She
only wished the could, be there in
visible and fee him manage;
"Let me sw," colioquized Keith.

ged up up the spout, and put them
i to soak in a pail of cold water,
j "There, they're washed," said ho
I to himself; 4'iicw for, something to

make about work. Why, 1 could

potato dish that I set on the lloor
to dry, and that's gone to the
shades ! Xever mind, accidents will
happen. I guess I'll trim the lamp
next ; mother always trimmed the
lamp in the morning. Confound
'em, how black the chimneys are."
:'Tlnis conversing with', himself
Mr. Keith put tho chimneys into
the bnsin and cogitated a moment.
He had heard it said that boiling
water wis cleansing. So he scal
ded tho chimneys, and the result
was 4 abont-Jt' hundred different
pieces lo each chimney.
Hi ood gracious !" he cried, "who'd
have thought it ! There's somebody
at the door. I'll just step out as I
am. It can't be any body that I
care for, so early as this,"
. A small boy presented himself,
eyeing Keith with ' ill-suppressed
mirth.
"lio you mistress of' the house ?'
'Yes that is, I am the master!'
said Mr. Keith, with dignity, 'what
can I do for you?'
'Nothing, I guess. Marin sent
me over to sec if you that is if
the mistress of the house would
take care of the baby while she
goes shopping.'
'Xo !' thundered Keith. I've
other fish. to fry.'
The boy put his thumb to his
nose, and Mr. Keith after slamming
the door as men always do when
they are out of temper returned
to the kitchen. The fire was out.

He filled the basin with rice, stir
red in a little sugar, dropped in an
egg, and set the vessel into, the
oven. The potatoes he washed in
soapsuds, that they certainly
might be clean, and put them into
the teakettle, because thy would
"boil quicker. .
..The steam was fizzling in the
fryingpton, and he was proceeding
to set the table, when the bell ranf .
- Ile'caught up the pan from the
fireto1' keep, it from 1 burning
and made haste to the- front door,

jlKeitn returned to the kitchen, a
ultle crestfallen, for Mrs.' Mudge
was a lady before Whom he desired
to appear particularlv w.ell. '
Tliere was'a tremendous crack
ing the oven.' He thought of.
his pudding, and looked in. The
burnt rice had hopped all over the
oven; the basin had melted apart,
and the pudding was hot done. He
shut the 'door upon the ruins in
disgust, and looked after his- pota
toes only to find lhcni boiled to a

-At tho door he found Mr. and
Mrs. Fidget a td there children, '
"My dear Mr. Keith!- how do you
do!'?'eried Mrs. Fidget. "We were
in town, and thought wed'd just,
step into dinner. Where is Mrs.
Keith if" . ' . ; : ;. .
'She's gone avay," said Keith,
ruefully, wondering what he should
feed on ; "walk in, do. I am the
housekeeper to-day- T'- : u
'toT, so I should judge. ' But of
course you make a splendid one,

"rut myself,' l'mleed," crirea KeitTi
retreating to the kitchen. "Good
gracious! what shall : I do? I'd
give n hundred dollars if Mary was ;
only here! Where shall I begin?;
lie drew out the table and set it
without any.eloth ; . then took ofT
the plates and put on' a cloth,, the
very one he had 'wiped the dishes
on. -The task completed, he put on
some more potatoes and some moro
steak ; burned tho steak to cinder :
took oil' his potatoes when ho did
his meat, and put all upon tho table.
There was a loaf of baker's bread
on the c ip' o ird; ho paraded that i
and caiicd his guests to dinner.
A quizzical smile spread over
Mrs. Fidget's lace at the sight of the
repast. Keith was in a cold per
spiration, "Ma, my plate's all greasy, and
so's my knife. I can't eat on dirty
dishes," cried little Jo'inny Fidget.
"And my fork is wet all over
with water that's dropping of the
table-cloth ; and my tater ain't half
biled," cried litt!e .Tane Fidget.
A slight noise in the kitchen
drew the attention of Mr. Keith.
"Jupiter?" cried he, "if Mrs.
OTlaherty's dog ain't making off
with my steak!" . i
He jumped from the table and
started in -hot pursuit. The dog
made .the best of it ; Keith's unac
customed attire was a sad drawback,
and he made but little headway.
"Kill him,' .he yelled to the
crowd that joined in the pursuit;
" I'll give fifteen dollars for his
hide.' .
Mrs. O'Flaherty herself appear
ed on the scene with a skillet of i
hot water. r
"Tech him if yer dare !' she cried
I'll break the bones of evry moth
er's son of yees. Stand from forn
inst, orye'll rue the day
Keith took a step forward, step
pedon his skirt, and pitched head
lirst into a wine celler, where half
a dozen men were playing cards.
"The devil in peticoats !' exclaim
ed one gamester, and the place em
plied quicker than a wink.
The police picked up Mr. Keith,
considerably bauised and carried
him home. His company had taken
their departure, and somebody not
having the fear of the law'' upon
themihad entered' and stolen a
hundred dollars , worth of property.
Mr.: Keith semi the following note
to his wife by the eteningmail: '1
r DeabMaiiy: Come home I give
up beat. A woman; does : have a
great deal to do. I confess myself
incompetent ,, to manage. ' . Come
home, anfr Totr shall have a nerw

divide your labors.
Yours
H. KEITH.
Prodigality and Extravagance.
From the following, which we
find in a late number of the Macon
tournf and Mriwenyr, it would ap
pear that tho reign of extravagance
is commencing in the Sonth. It
says: ' '
'The ycry idea of economy, and
even of rcgulatinz expenses bv' in
come, seems to have departed from
among us.;., j lie opening of North
ern storehouses to our astonishel
visions, seems to .have run every
body crazy, the poor as well as the
rich. Women dress as if t hey were
locomotive -signs for the- milliner's
shops, and men smoke costly cigars,
drink fifteen-dollar brandy and
drive fast, hoi sc, as -it they were
loaded down with riches, had a
short time'to live, and nobody to
leave it to. We shall wake up from
this, delusion before many months
shall have nassel over our v heads ;
and when the crash comes, what an
awful fall 'it will lo!'

bitterly denounce President Joux-i
