To A MoTHER.-You have a child
on your knee. Listen a moment -do
you know what that child is? It is an im
mortal being, destined to live forever
It is destined to be happy or miserable!
You-the mother! You, who gave it
birth, the mother of its being, are also
the mother of its soul ' for good or ill.
Its character is as yet undecided, its
destiny is placed in your hands. What
shall it be? The child may be a liar:
you can prevent it. It may be a drunk
ard; you can prevent it. It may be a
murderer; you can prevent it. It may
be an atheist; you can prevent.lIt
may live a life of misery to itself and
of mischief to others; you can prevent
it. It may descend into the grave with
an evil memory behind and dread be
fore; you can prevent it. Yes, you,
th..m..h.r, an prevent all these things
-will you or not?-Look at the inno
cent. Tell me again, will you save it?
Will you watch over it? Will you
watch over it? Will you teach it dis
cipline-pray for it? Or will you in
vain search for pleasure, or in gaiety,
or fashion, or any other bubble, or even
household cares, neglect the soul of that
child and leave the little immortal to
take wing alone, exposed to evil temp
s to :ruiu? Look at- the infant.
Place you d upon its little head.
Shall that heart. rted by its
mother, to beat, perchance, n ow,
disappointment, and wretchednes', an
despair? Place your ear to;. its side,
and hear that heart? How rapid and
vigorous the strokes! How the blood
is thrown through its little veins!
Think of it: that heart, in vigor now, is
the emblem of a spirit that will work
with ceaseless pulsation, for sorrow or
for joy for ever.-Fireside .Education.
DEATH AND SLEEP.
A OlERMAN FAnLiE.
F'-aternally the angel of sleep and
angel of deati wandered over the earth.
It was evening. They reclined on a
hill not far from the habitation of man.
A melancholly stillness reigned, and
the evening clock in the distant village
was not heard.
Silently, according to their custom,
sat the two benevolent genii of humani
ty, in a sad embrace, and already night
The angel of sleep arose from his
Ies- Couch, and scattered with a gen
tie hand the invisible seed of slumber.
The evening wind wafted it to the si.
lent diwelling of the wearied husband
man. Now sweet sleep embraced the
inhabitants of the rural cottage, from
haired man who leans upon his staff to
the infant in the cradle. The sick for
got their pain, the melancholy their
sorrow, the poor their wants. Every
eye was closed.
After his labor was accomplished,
the benevolent angel of sleep again laid
down with his serions brother. 'When
the dawn appears,' said lie in a tone of
cheerful innocence, "then man will
praise me as his friend and benefactor!
O, it is to do good unseen and in secret!
Ifow happy we are, the visible nmessen
gers of the good spirit ! How lovely
our noiseless occupation !'
Trhuts spake the frienply angel of sleep.
TJhe angel of death regarded him
with silent grief', and1 a tear, such as
mortals wee p, stoodl in his large dar'k
eye. 'A las ! siad he, that I cannot,
like yon, rejoice in the gratitude of' man.
Tfhe earth calls mue her onemiy and the
disturber of her joy !"'
'O my brother,' replied the angel of
sleep, 'will not the good, on awakenin~g,
dliscover in you thetir friend and benic
factor, and gratefully bless you ! Arec
we inot. breth ren, an d thme nmesseng'er-s of'
oneo father ?' T1hus lie spake. Then

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS. fe
So, you desire an account of my
Robinson Crusoe life in Paris, and I
shall proced to give it to you in plain d
prose, promising only by the wa7 that b<
you seem to me as familiar with Paris- wY
ian phraseology, as if you had been born oi
and bred au septieme of a French Ro- m
tel lMeuble. I, then, Henry Colman, w
of lawful age, a citizen of the grand Re- ai
public of the United States (hurrah ai
for the thirteen stars and stripes!) and tc
for many years a subject of her royal fr
majesty, ucen Victoria (God save ci
the Queen!). do depose and say, that I t
reside in a street of Paris called La rue e;
Chaussee d'Antin, running from the c,
Boulevards to St. Lazare, straight as tl
an arrow, clean, well built, full of fine fi
houses and fine shops, and magnificent a
hotels in court yards, and crowded from j
early dawn to late at night, I had al- r
most said until the return of lawn, with in
carriages, chariots, omnibuses, chaises, b
wheelbarrows, ladies and women (gen- I
erally very handsome indeed), milk- T
maids,laundresses, giisettes, lorettes, I
chiffonniers, fashionables, and Norman- t
disc with their butterfly caps; in short, 1
one of the most public, and one of the i
busiest, and one of the pleasantest t
streets in town. I am in the fifth sto- I
ry-the lower floor is not counted, and
the entresol, fir second floor, is not coun- <
ted; I am am qatrieme, and mount six I
fl ht of stairs to reach my n-ting 1
p ace. *n"fat and 'pursy,' amd
having very short e ge
pend upon it I have often wishe'I r
some elevating maebine, by which the
summit could be reached without hairE
ing to double up my joints one hundred
and thirteen times-for thatis the num
ber of stairs. Now young. and ethe
real persons like yourself, so gay, so
transparent, so light of step, would go
up like a sparrow a whole flight at a
time. From my eyrie-nest [look down
upon the moving world with philosophic
composure, and breathe: an a4mosphere
far superior to the govellingfsons oM
earth below me-(ask the chemists if it
is not so). My nest, ho-wever, is ver v
small. I have but Onte small room;
three good closets; a brick floor, which
I like. because it saves all noise, cover
ed with a thick carpet; a bed, long
enough if I don't grow any, which I
have concluded not to do for the pres
ent; a chest of drawers, surmounted by
a stuffied parrot in a glass case, who
looks very civilly at me, and says noth:
ing though I feel occasionally quite em
barrassed at the closeness of his in
spection; bed, linen, covering, most
clean and excellent; an open fireplace,
with a moveable grate, which I purchas
ed, and in which I burn dry wood and
good coal; three easy chairs, and iwo
with upright backs which I prefer, fer
fear of affecting the grace of my move
ments; and, to crown the whole, three
good sized mirrors-so that, you see,
I am never without company, though
it is only the reduplication of that of
which one sample is quite sufficient
certainly one at a time. I breakfast in
my o~wn chamber at nine; rise at half
past six; get very hungry before break
fast comes. TIhe servant brings my al
lowanice of bread, butter, arid cream.
I boil my own tea-kettle; make my own
tea; buy my owin sugar, candles, etc.;
have the Daily News to read in the
mnornin g-which sometimes, on account
of the ill-temper which it shows towards
Amnerica and France, obliges me to put
more su garn than usual in my tea. In
dlishabille I wear- a grey frock coat,
plaid waistcoat, grey trousers, silk neck
cloth, black slippers, occasionally yarn
ined, and look vecry gr-ave ana wise,
when rasing any head from the table, I
let, my spectacles dr-op on the end of my
niose and( comb my few str-aggling grey
hain-s with miy fingers. pr-esenting in
such cases a very-~ fine study forb an ar
tist. [ have a man servant for- my', fem
mec de'chambre; attentive to a fatult, full
of goodl natur-e, anid so willing to servr
rie, that I take care never to call of
him for what I can dlo myself, ant
sometimes almost frighten the cap o
his head by my frantic gesticulation
whein I cannot make him uinderstand
my French, though I understand it
perfectly myiself. I stay in my room,
extr-aordinaries excepted, always until
three o'clock wheon I go sight seeing;

lien I first wake, and try to quiet the

ar friends; thank God from the
ittom of my soul for his mercies abd.
Cnder why I am not a poor miserable
teast, sbivering starving naked Irish
an, or beggar, as hundreds of others,
bosa claims seem as good as mine; and
n amazed that I have educatioi, char

mnot love me half so well as I love
iem. But this wont do. . open my
