She had no mother ! What a volume
of sorrowful truth in that single sen
tence--no mother !--We must go.down
the hard, rough path of life, and be
come inured to care and sorrow in their
sternest forms, before we can take
home to our own experience the dread
reality-no mother-without a struggle
and a tear. But when it is said of a
fair young girl, just passing from child
hood toward the life of a woman, how
sad is the story summed up in that one
short sentence. Who now shall check
the wayward funcies-who now shall
bear with the errorb and failings of the
motherless girl ? )eal gently with the
Let not the cup of sorrow be ovei-"ý
led by the harshness of your bearing ori
your unsympathiziug coldness. Is she
rehedless ot her doings ? Is she careless
."Qfj.her' movements ? Remember, ohl! er
m mber, 'she has no mother.' When
Sldr young comnl,aniions are gay andjoy
'.iod.s, does she sit sorrowing-does she
*pass with a downcast eye and a languid
step, wlhen you would fain witness the
gushing and overflowing gladness of
youth ?-C'hile her not, for she is moth
erless, and the great sorrow comes down
upon her soul like an incubus.
Can yo(u again confidence,. can you
win her love ? Come then, to the mo
therless with the boon of your tender
est care, and by the memory of your
own mother perhaps alrady passed
away-by the fulness of your o.rn re
imembered sorrow-by the possibility
that your own child might he mother
less-contribute, so far as you may, to
relieve the 1 of that fair, fail child,
who is rritt6otherless.
Marriage in. ap1and.--It is death
in Lapland to marry a maid without the
consent of her parents and friends.
When a young man has formed an
attachment for a female, it is the fashion
for the friends to meet to be hold the
young parties run a race together.
The mhaid is allowed, in starting, the
advantage of one third of the distance
so~thatit iwipossible, except willing
hersel e should be overtaken.
If the uttun the suitor, the mat
t4 must never have her,
hlt .Aii& or the y-Qng man to,
of marriage. But if
";he rvtig:tl n affeecion for him,
xthough art she run qlite fast to try
a';he will, without Atlanta's
- b falls to retard her speed, pretend
S aty and a voluntary halt Icfore she
coilms to the mark' at the end of the
race. Thus none are'to marry against
their will ; and that is the rea-n,, that
in this poor country the married 1 ".id'
are richer in their contentment than ii,
other lands, where so many fcign Ive
'nd Cause unhappinepe
The led Petticonta!
Tie Scarlet Letter made something
of a fuss in its time, and Scarlott, like
his fiend Little John, was something of a
thief in his day; but neither the Scar
let Letter, nor Will Scarlett, nor any
thing else of all that there is scarlet,
ever attracted so much attentionscr
stole so many hearts as the far-famed
Scarlet Petticoat is destined to do-the
great phenomenon, a specimen of which
has already arrived in this city, accom
panied by the red flannel caleeon, which
forms a part of the "regimentals."
Place aux 1)nimes !-make way for the
Sublime Petticoat and rive le jupon
Queen Victoria in England-nothing
less-being fascinated while at Balmor
al by the red petticoats of the peasan
try, her attention being called to them
by observing the degree to which they
absorbed Albert as "art studies," sud
denly resolved to counter checkEugenio
hoops and introuduce something which
should be both useful and ornamental.
Still the idea had been broached before.
Somewhere in Moriarty's novels foppish
but intelligent young mlan remarks the
picturesque effect of the red pitticoat of
Irish "girls, and thinks that there is
something rather Spanish in it. How
ever, the Queen got 9Q°' tfL the petti
coats, and calerdon, anriput them on.
Albert put up his quizzingglass and ad
mired the affect ; Lady Gore Ously saw
it, and introduced it at Washington-so
hurrah for the Scarlet Petticoat, and
rice le jupon rouge !
It is made sometimes with black
stripes, (a species of rouge et noir, at
which there will be much losing of
hearts by those whose atffcetions are
readily attracted by line ankles,) form
ing what is )piplarly known as "the
devils mourning." Light lnd darkness,
joy and sorrow, love anid hatred, are
all epituilly typified by these stripes of
tlhe shell wlliclh encase OBeaunty-so
hurrah for the Scarlet Ietticoat, and
vireC i.jtpuou. rouge: !
MIen will no longer speak of the wars
,o the roses, they will talk of the wars
o- the red and white petticeoats. WVhen
literary ladies put theim ,on---tholse who
wear the Ihas I,/u ---then the world will
behold the glo,'ions tri-color, their
hearts will expaml at the gloriousi
mn loni ries of lilelrty, and with pulplit:t

sing the authtlen of hurrah for the red,

. The following beautiful lines, upon the
death of his child, CIIAItLES JAMES, were
written by CHARLES SPILAGUE, Esq., and pub
lished in the Boston Gazette, some forty odd
"The silver cordjis loosed, the golden bowl is broken.'
There is a spot-'tis holy ground
To those who weep,
Where hush'h beneath each lonely
Death's mouldering victims sleep.
My friend and brother there are laid,
From sorrows free;
And there a clay-cold bed is made,
For thee, sweet boy, for thee.
Those little hands thou'li-raispe more,
To meet my arms;
The bitter blast of death pass'd o'er,
And wither'd all thy charms.
Thou cam' st, and pleasures new and
Tfy coming gave ;
Thou'rt gone-and every youg delight
Is laid in thy dark grave.
What joy I hop'd should gild this day,
When thou wast born;
The day has come-but thou'rt away,
My boy, 0, thou art gone !
Forever gone life's active, spark,
. The blood's warm thrill;
Tispe bright blue orbs are closed and
That little heart is ptill.
IPyesat m.iby: thy cradle's side,
And joy'd to trace,
Blind fool, with all a father's pride,
Thy future earthly race.
Gay fancy formed thee good and wise,
Fair virtue's theme,
Truth's darling prop, bright hoflor's
But, O! 'twas all a dream.
One beautious bud perfamned my bower,
One b'ud hlone ;
The spoiler came, iii ruthless power,
And made that bud his own.
I've seen an hcur-with ome 'twill live
Till life depart;
Time's vaunted skill no balm can give,
\ItcR emnbrunce wrings myIy heart.
'Twas when I watch'd, with curding
E:a,'h speeding breath ;
'Twaits when on that fair forehead stool.
'Twns when the lieoil, with grasp so
i'hill'd life's red lid-. :
'Twas wht-en ithat ,eye its li. t glance
'''wa.s whcni my p,1r boy died.
The sight will rise, in In ol ...d,'s spitos
The tours will rll;
Grief round me draws her iunenti:al
And desolates ity soul.
Yet let my .stricken Iht,'t ble f aught
'That thou'rt in peao;I
Yet let iny stricken heart be taught

Curious Notes on Sacred History.-
According to tradition, Damascus is
built on the spot where Cain slew
Mount Ararat, in Amenia, it is said
when seen from afar and in certain posi
tions, has in its summit a striking re
semblance to a ship. The whole coun
try around is full of traditions respect
ing Noah and the ark.
The garden of Gethsmane, the scene
of the Saviour's passion, is about a third
of an acre ix extent, and p.Fasurrounded
by a low wall. . The garden is planted
with olive, almond and fig trees. Eight
of the olive trees are said to have been
in existence ever since the time of
Christ, and it is considered sacrilege
tuck theim leaves.
The Potter's Field,' brought for the
ststy !pieces of silver which were the
price of the treason of Judas, was exam
ined in 1839. A cave was d covere
filled with skulls, evidently not of Je
but of foreigners
The initals I,: H. S., (Jeseti
num Salvator] were invented' by `
ine in pentury. fer
ue i°n ' he travelled the
#odAnt ,, t4 ..U i these letters in the
churches~hi ver hle went.
Certainuiancient .Judaio authorities
assert that Enoch, or his forefather,
Seth vas informed by Adam that the
world was to perish, once by water and
a second time by fire. Two pillars
were then erected, one of stone against
the. water, and the other of brick
against fire ; and upon these pillars was
engraved all such learning as had been
delivered.to or invented by mankind.
By these means all knowledge was not
lost at the flood, as one of the pillars
remained and was seen by Josephus.
SiiTacitus once said that marriages
make the world immortal. They are
the soul and chief prop of empire. That
man who resolves to live without wo
man, and that woman who resolves to
live without man, are cuonuies to the
community in which they dwell-in
jurious to theniselvs, dlostructive to the
world, apostates from naturo, and
robels against heiaven and earth.
