Another tear liai wrecked it Irehfht
On the dumb sea-Miore of the Pant,
But through the Future's opening gate,
Strive not one ulitnue to east ;
bought Is revested, though bleak and ere,
May be our lot another year ;
Noutht is revealed, thouah soon the wave
Of time may break upon the grave
Of all our hope anil fears,
And dull Oblivion' sunless cares
Close on our smiles and tears.
Blithe Father Christmas came to cheer
The death-bed ol the poor old year,
And scattered lnres;ie to a crowd
Ot merry imps who laughed aloud
To see his honest luce once more,
Still ruddy, although wrinkled o'er;
And e'en gray Winter's visage grim
Grew milder at the sight 01 him.
Good cheer from larders amply stored,
He brought to hall and cottage board.
And bells were rung, anil hearths flamed
Ere spoken was his kind good-bye 1
Brief but delightful was his stay,
Jolly his j.lay spcll of a day ;
Ilis crown of evergreen awoke
Within the heart a dream of spring.
Of leaf-robes on the kingly oak,
And swallows on the wmg : t
He symbolized, with box and pine,
The beauty of a land divine
Where Death, pale mower, enters never,
Fond ties, by love entwined, to sever.
BY MATTIE W. TURKEY.
The sones we sang in other years
They greet us now no more;
The loves that roused our hopes and fears
Are vanished now, and o'er.
The friends we love are scattered wide,
Familiar scenes are changed;
And hearts that once were true and tried
Are lifeless or estranged.
The lip the sweetest smile that wore ;
The cheek that bloomed most fair;
The voice that charmed m long before,
With music rich and rare;
The tycs whose lightest glance could still
Our hearts with love enthrall, Lkill,
Whose smile could bless, whose frown cculd
Are changed or vanished all.
The way was bright before us then,
The coming day seemed fair;
We mingled with our fellow-men.
With hearts to do and dare.
The hopes of youth are faded now,
Its fevered dreams are past:
And time, upon our furrowed brow,
Ills silvery shade has cast.
We too are changed, but o.it in heart 1
Old time may do his worst;
He cannot from remembrance part
The things we loved at first.
The eyes may dim, the cheeks grow pale,
The snows of age miy fill,
Tet shall our memories never fail
To heed affection's call.
Shot and Killed.
William White, a farmer living near Shaw

lishment, Sunday, to buy a coffin tor his son
Charles, who shot hlneir accidentally Friday
evening of last week. The deceased was a
young man, about nineteen years of age. He
went out hunting Friday afternoon alone. Just
about dark he scared up a fl ck of quails, and
undertook to follow them through the bushes.
Ee wss running along through the brush with
his gun in h s lelt band when it got caught In
the bushes. Turning partly around he jerked
It impatiently. The muzzle pointed towards

the bushes in which it had become entant'ed
the hammer was rtUed and slipped down aguiu
on the cap. He received the whole load in his
lett side, just below and a little in front ot the
shoulder. It passed back and lodged near his

to die, anil he certainly would have died there

They took their hBher siraps and some blan

took him home, lie lived till about 8 o'clock

Falsehood, is, indeed, on all accounts Inex
cusable, and can never proceed but from some
unworthy principle as cowardice, malice, or
a total contempt ot virtue end honor. The
difficulties It runs one into are not to be num
bered. One lie requires ten others to support
it, and tbe failure of probability in one ot them
ruins ail. me pains necessary io patch up
a plausible story, and the racking of the mem
ory to keep always to the same circumstances
iu representing things, and avoid contradic
tions, is insuneraoie; sua, auer an, it is a
thousand to one but tbe artlfke is detected, and
then tbe unhappy man Is questioned as much
when he is sincere as when ba dissembles; so

Not being fayored with the attribute of ubi

good fortune to see them all, but what we did

We first directed our steps to No. 4, where
we found Miss Hattie Adams, assisted by Miss
Caddie Bolton, conducting as bright and happy
a bevy oflilt!eone as one ever meets through
a programme of song and recitation that was
good, both in sentiment and execution. A few
visitors only were present, among them Mrs.
Regan. As we entered, Master Julian, her
boy, was relating, in very good style, how San
