as one sees the pretty little foot of a lady,
'cased in a aeat , slipper, absut to step' down
kite a mud-hele of undiscovered depth, his

Somebody we don't know who, and the name

those bright young lads who delight in laugh

'rate one, replied the youngster. When the
unhappy , traveller, a few moments after
wards, found his horse's head alone 'peepiug
above the mud and himself gradually sinking
beneath the suface, heuaedbis lungs instead
of his cane, for he could do no butter, in cas
tigating the youngster, and said, "I thought
-you said this rosdhad a good bottom." "So

that Christmas is close at hand. The little
boys and girls know that, and what pleasant
.dreams of Old Kriss, of candies and toys and
' cakes and dolls, the happy youngster now
enjoy! If we didn't get a taste of "double
" distilled" or a plug of tobaccs fur a lialf-cen-.tury.'we
weuld not deprive ourselves of a
loak at those cheerfal face and laughing
eyes or miss thatmeiry laugh on Christmas
day, as the gifts of the kiad old gentleman
are displayed in rich confueion upon carpets
, and in -wiodjw., by the happy care and in
dustry of his happy recipient. Innocent
' chiMhsoil, blissful In its imiocenst, is happy
all the lime, where health and the loving
looks and kind care of fond parent ar a
taund it, but no happier time fur them than
whea Old Kriss comes In te see how much
sad how good they havo grown' since his
last annual visit and te repeat his acts of
disinterested bsnevolcnce by distributing
ameng them that with which their young
hearts are delighted. DiJ you ever hear
that merry laugh ringing in your ear, fath
er, and did it not make you a happier, if not
! wiser man! , Oh! there is a sermon in hap
py childhood, (spring of living water gush
ing from that beautiful fountain of innocense,
the foreshadowing of happier days, when the
worlds contact shall not wither that heart,
once so green, nor render it cold and callous
and calculating. The time shall come, so
we aretold'by prophesy that, never yet ,'hai
failed; but shall not this generation help to
speed its coming! ' '
I But the scene is changed. To some young
hearts tbeir is no happiness.'' To them there
conies no Kriss even to brighten ono day in
:fte year To the mother it is not even a
day of rest. , It is toil for her, all the time
and while she sits over her work, her tears
' start to hec eyes to hear her children wonder
why no Kriss comes to visit them. . The lit
' tie one know not that she is wearing her
life away, in'toiling late and early for their
support, while an improvident and unthink-
' ing father is squandering all his earnings
,. and sometimes even mors in dissipation and
idleness, or perhaps has gone down into the
"'grave leaving nothing behind but blows and
tears to bear in , remembrance. It is a sad
. thought, bat sadder scenes than oven this
' have happened ere now. - Reader, you may
' not bring' happiness back to that home, for
"' sorrow has loft its indelible footprints there;
but you can alleviate the sufferings of the
unhappy by giving what you will not m'ss
" put of a bountiful store provided for you by
the God ofatt. May not be, in his wisodis

he met a poorly dressed little girl upon the
sidewalk, whose . tears too truly bespoke. the
misery of her heart. The little fellow won

children, as! he thought, were happy. But
' she hail beerl trying to sell matches to get

So absurd was tho attempt that, upon the

In tho lower story, they were taken in the

Tiie Caloric Ekgjke of Ericsson.
The caloric engine of Ericsson, which has
been placed on board the steamer Ericsson,
at Williamsburg, N.: Y., has created much
interest among mechanics, for the attempts
made herotoforo to propel machinery with
hot uir, instead of stenm, have proved utter
failures. In 1827 two brothers named
Stirling, in Glasgow, invented a hot air en
gine nearly similar to Ericsson's. ' This en
gine communicated motion to a piston by
alternately healing a portion of uir on one
side of the piston, und cooling it on the oth
er by means of air-vessels, one communica
ting above and below the piston. "The dif
ference in the Ericsson engine is, that the
heated air is saved, and applied over again,
which, it is alleged, will make it more- eco-
n.imi.ul. Ot lipr i 11 vi.nf urd linDA .ir.n.rli,
