THE SHIP AT SEA.
In a cottage that stood on the wild sea-shore,
A little one sat 'neath the rine-wreathed

and sad was the childish face-
On the soft, pink cheek shone the tnar-drop's
For the cherished toy best beloved of all
The poor little waxed-faced, blue-eyed doll,
Was broken. Smile notat theehildish pain.
Nor the tears that were dropping like silver

Said, bending down by the little one,
And kissing the mouth and the dimpled ehin
"Don't cry, my love; when oar ship comes

We will get a new dolly, oh far more fair, :
With brighter eyes and with softer hair;
Now dry your tears, for't will surely be,

Oh, that ship to come! "and how oft before
Had the bright eyes watched from tne cot

As with eager gaze they were watching now
For the gleaming sail and the rushing brow;
But oft she ran to her mothers side,
Her sweet blue eves with the gladness wide,
As she pictured the wonderful pleasure to

The White Sparrow.
FROM THE GERMAN.
''i "i" '"bleep is the worst of thieves;
He steals half our lives."
' r In most parts of Germany, there pas
sescurrent among the people tnis

"He that would thrive, ,r
,Mu6t th white sparrow see."
-, The meaninff of this proverb is not,
at firat , sicrht. so - apparent as that
O ' A A

such as "harly habits'make the man,
"Honesty is f the beat poUcy," Ac;
the moral signification it is intended
convey is - none.' the less true and im
Dortant. I will, therefore, here relate
the story connected . with its origin,
even as I received it myself, from
lips of an old and valued friend. '
There was an old farmer with whom
everything appeared to grow worse
from year to year. . His cattle died
by onoi and the product of his land
not tne rail 01 wnar, 11 ougm k do ;
feet all his Dropertv was. to use a
miliar expression, "going to the dogs.
In short, scarcely a week passed
that the tax gatherer or the pawnbroker
did not come to bis window, and
dressing him with a courteous bow,
say: ; : ' ' '"
"1 am really very sorry, llerr ttocK-
wart, to be compelled to put you to
convenience, but I am obliged to do
The old friends of . Uerr Kuckwart
also tried to do theirduty to him.- They
advised, they entreated, "and
helped mm,, but all in vain, and so
after another gave him up in dispair,
declaring with a sigh, that as for
Knckwart, there was no use m trying
help him he, was past being; helped.
lie had one mend, however, wnose
heart was in the right place, and
was not only a good man but a
clear-sighted one. ... This friend thought
he would : not w rierr ttucswart
altogether, without, making one."
attempt to save him. So one day
led tne conversation, as it accidentally,
to the subject of sparrows, relating many
anecdotes of these birds, and observ
ing how greatly they had multiplied
late, and how very cunning and vora
cious they had become. -
Herr Kuckwart shook bis head
vely, in answer to this observation,
They fire, indeed, most destructive
creatures. I1 or my part I have not
slightest doubt that it is mainly owing
to their depredations that my harvest
has of late years been so unproductive.
To this coniecture nis old friend
made no rejoinder; but after a moment'
pause he continued the conversation
by another interrogatory '
".Neighbor, have you ever seen
white sparrow !"
"Jio," replied Kuckwart; "the
rows' which slight in my fields are
the common grey sort.
"That is very probable too, rejoined
his friend. . "The habits f-the
sparrow are peculiar to liseu. ,
ae a. If f
one comes .into the world every
and being so different from his fellows,
other sparrows takes dislike for it,
peck at it when it appears Among them
For this reason it seeks its food
in tbc morning, before the rest of
feathered tribe are astir, and then
back to it neet where- it ' remains
the rest of the day.
That" is very 'strange!"' exclaimed
Ruckwart. "1 must really try and
a sight at that sparrow and if possible,
I will catch it, too."
On the morning following this
tbe farmer arose with
sun and sallied forth, into the field. He
walked around his farm, searched his
farm-yard in every' quarter," examined
the roofs of his garners and the trees of
his orchards, to see whether her could
discover any traces of the wonderful
white sparrow I 4 But the white sparrow,
to the great disappointment ot tne
farmer, would not , show . itself, or stir
from its imaginary nest. . , .; ,
What i vexed the tanner still more,
however, was that although , the sun
stood high in the heavens by the.jtime
he had concluded fcis round, not one 01
the farm laborers was astir they, too,
seemed resolved not to stir from their
nests. . Meantime the cattle were , bel
lowing in their stalls with hunger, and
not a soul was near to feed tnem.
Herr Ruckwart was reflecting on the
disadvantages of this state of things,
when suddenly he perceived a wd com
ing out of the house, carrying a sack of
wheat on his shoulder. . lie seemed to
be in great haste te get out of the pre
cinct of the farm, and - Herr Ruckwart
soon preeeived that his steps were bent
towards a public house, where Casper
had unhappily a long score to pay.'. He
hastened after the astonished , youth,
who believed his master to be still in
the enjoyment of his morning nap,, and
quickly relieved him of his burden. '.
The farmer next bent his steps to the
cow-house, and peeping to see whether
the white sparrow had perchance taken
refuge there, he discovered, to his dis
may, tbat tbe milkmaid - was nanaing

liberal portion ol mint inrougn ine
wiodow to her neighbor, to mix with
her morning cup of coffee.
"A pretty sort of Housekeeping tnis
is, thought the farmer to nimseir, as ne
hastened to his wife's apartment and
roused her, .from her slumber. "As
sure as my name is Ruckwart," he ex
claimed in an angry tone, "there must
be an end to these lazy habits, , iivery-
thinf is coins wrong for the want of
some body to look after them. ': So far
as I am concerned,'' thought the good
farmer "I will rise , every day at the
same .hour I rose this morning, and
then I shall eret my farm cleared of
those who do not ' intend to do ineir
duty properly.. ; Besides, who .knows
but some fine morning or other I may
succeed in catching the white sparrow,
Tiava and weeks passed on. 1 tie
fanner, adhered to his resolution, but
he soon forgot the white sparrow, and
nly looked after cattle and his corn
field., Soon every thingTaronnd, him
wore a flourishing aspect, and men be-
iran to observe that Herr Otuck wart
(Backward), now well ' deserved to be
called Herr Torwart (Forward). .
In due course of time bis old tnend
again came to spend the day with him,
and inquired in a humorous tone ;
"Well, my hne teliow, now are you
getting on now f have you succeeded in
catching a glimse , ot the whjte, spar
The farmer only replied to this ques
tion by a smile, and then, , holding out
bis band to nis oia inena, ue saiu ,
"God bless you, Harder I you have
saved me and my family from rum,
Often, in after years, when llerr
Ruckwart was a prosperous man, re-

' He went to. see Mr. Barnum, to consult
what Was the best plan for advertising.;
'o They at last fixed upon a plan,
which was to have a story written for
the purpose and printed in every paper
ithe State -of New York," in cities,
and towns, and villages. ' The name
the story was the "Gun maker of Mos
cow." : The first part of this "Btory was
put in every paper on the same Satur
day morning. ' At the eud of part first
it stated it would be continued in the
New Yorls Ledger, published by Bonner.
The story was copied into Massachusetts
papers, thence into rennsylvania papers,
and thence irito those of other States,

columns in the morrow's papers for

said he would like to have the whole
paper. The consequence was that the
next day the paper had nothing but
Bonner's advertisement in it

stated that an article written by Henry
Ward Beecher would be in the Ledger;
and so on through the eight pages.

to sell but only attracted attention

To-day the Ledger has over three

people came past in the morning, they
wondered wnere tney came irom; ana

Evils of Gossip.
I have known a country society which
withered away all to nothing under the
dry rot. of gossip only. Friendships
once as firm as granite dissolved to
jelly, and then run away to water, only
because of this love,- that promised a
future as enduring as heaven and as
stable as truth, evaporated into a morn
ing mist that turned to a day's kmg
tears, only because of this ; a father and
son were set foot to foot with the fiery
breath of anger that would never cool
again between them, only because of
this; and a husband and his young
wife, each straining at the heated leash,
which, in the beginning, had been the
golden bondage of a God-blessed love,
