BY MI18. J. O. BEBKETT..
When Inst I walked your pebble shore,
0 seal O restless, monning seal
To catch your briny breath once more,
And hear, as oft 1 had before
In those long-vanished days of yore,
Sweet childhood's days of glco,
What your wild waves were saying?
So sweet and happy wsb tho song
1 could have listened all day long,
Upon your bright sands straying.
The sun each blushing cloud caressed,
He smiled upon the glowing snnd,
Trembled upon your heaving breast,
And kissed each wavelet's foam'tipped crest.
That hasted on in sweet unrest
To greet the waiting stand
With soft and rippling laughter.
And Love and I, thai blessed day,
Laughed happy, golden hours away,
Nor thought what might conic after 1
But nh, since then, dear, dear old sen.
I've stood on Life's bleak, wreck-strewn shore,
The while came rolling in on me
The waves of that mysterious sea,
Far reaching as eternity,
That ever, evermore
Bolls on with ceaseless billow ;
Wrenching our dearest hopes away,
And drenching in its icy spray
Fond hearts that fain would follow.
And Love led me far down that wave,
Trembling with terror, chilled with cold,
While faithfully she sought to save
From that remorseless, cruel grave
My heart "'to have And hold,"
Gave to a life's fond keeping.
Long, long she battled with the Rood,
The while in helpless grief I stood,
In helpless anguish weeping.
Then checked my tears with smile divine,
"'Tis but the casket's lost," she cried,
'"The precious jewel still is thine,
And in thy heart shall ever shine
Resplendent as it rnwe from mine
To bless a happy bride 1
Though Death fond hands may sever,
Hearts that my breath hath breathed upon,
Hearts by my fingers knit in one,
. Can partedlje,-ubv never!''.
masked Robbers at Work.
A robbery of a most during and extra
ordinary character was committed Tues
day night at the house of Air. Win. K.
Souttcr, in West New Brighton, near
Sailors' Snug Harbor, Stuten Island. Mr
Sutler is a banker of New York City,and
Iiis house, which is very handsomely fur
nished, had been left for the winter in
chargo of servants, much valuable proper
ty, including silverware having been left
on the premises. The New York Sun says:
"The house was broken into on Tues
day night, the servants hound and gagged
and everything carried ?way. A party
of masked men entered the house the
previous night, and after binding the ser
vants, including the waiting man, three
girls in these/vice of Mr. Souttcr, and
two others employed by Commodore Os
boruc, who were spending the evening
with their friend.-, they ransacked the
house, and being unable to open the iron
safe in which the silverware was kept,
blew it open with gunpowder. The stable
was also visited and the silver mountings
removed from the harness. They then
took the gold heads of two walking canes
in the hall, wantonly destroyed much
property too cumbersome to be removed,
and quit the house cautioning the ser
vants not to make any attempt to stir
THE ONLY CLUE.
Tw > boats, (/tic Mr. Charles II. Moigs's,
and the other Mr. Livingston's were
missing from the moorings, mid in these
the burgulars had evidently escaped with
their booty, for both boats were subse
quently found on tho New Jersey shore,
Mr. Souttcr carefully estimated the total
loss, which he saiil is upwards of$12,000.
The police could give no clue, for the
BOrvants could not describe the burglars,
and were uncertain as to tho number;
some say therefore eleven,others twelve.
ANNIE HAY'S STORY.
Among those in the house nt the time
of tho burglary was Annie Fays, a ser
vant girl, who says that the girls and tho
wailing man sat down to play cards, the
coachman having gone to bed. At ten
minutes past nine o'clock a knock was
heard at the hall door, but none of the
card party were in a mood to hasten to
open it; nor were they required to do so,
for without any repetition of the knock
tho door, which was not locked, was
pushed open, and before the card players
could ris^^ party of masked men quietly
filed into the kitcken and surrounded
them. One of the robbers said that their
party numbered eleven, and they were
there to the house; if the servants
remained fjill their lives would be spared,
but it' tli tempted to escape or muko
any outcry they would bo shot. Each of
the intrud? rs held a pistol. The waiting
man was fecund to his chair, but the girls
were allovi^d their liberty until the plun
dering wit: accomplished. Some of the
robbers regained in the kitchen watching
the scrvnvirt while others ransacked the
house, awfo others ngain mounted guard
outside- Everything that could be car
ried away-y.vns speedily packed up, and
much property, including fuvnituro and
carpets, \. unnecessarily destroyed,
ui^r-vixo oi'KX the .'- aim:.
The roWmf? then turned their attention
to the s?gi~ which they tried to forco
open, but it.4 nmssivo iron door and pon
derous Ioju plefiod their utmost cllbrts,
and, nftei? nr.o> hours' unavailing toil,they
held n-cojl |il, and in a few moments
informed^ 10 sjrvants that they weic
going to hi [w open the safe. They assert
that tlicrowasno danger, but the prison
ers thougUKthcy had merely been spared
the ordcaHDf having their throats cut to
be blownTw with the house. In a few
minutes itw-prcparatious were made, und
shortlyafi^Evnrd there was an explosion
which sUmfv the mansion from roof to
cellar. 'l-jfe safe was shattered and the
valuable pj&te was quickly appropriated
by the robfers, who had soaked u sheet
in water for some purpose which the girl
could not Ascertain. Their object proba
bly was to throw it over anything which
might be get on fii\*. by the explosion.
The gang Jlhc.i prepared to go. They
asked the ,-jjirls from Com. Osborne's
house whether they were going home or ]
u any one Was to call for them, und on
learning'Y. one was coming, they
turned vl-c^-tfti peril of their live? u
attempt to liberate themselves before
daylight. It was a quarter before twelve
o'clock as they started from the house.
As soon as they had disappeared, the
servants attempted to release themselves,
but were unable to do so until live o'clock,
when the waiter did what be seems to
have been too terrified to do before'?
went to the coach-house and called the
coachman. The party were soon released
and the alarm given."

Communists in America.
Those foreigners who think that they
can introduce into our American com
munities t he terrorism which cursed Paris
under the Communist sway will lind
themselves wo fully mistaken. Here, where
honest labor is most respected and suffer
ing poverty is most quickly relieved, the
impudence of dictation, whether it come
from high or low, is most effectually re
sented and put down. Some of the
leaders in the workingmen's demonstra
tions it) New York, Cincinnati, and
Chicago have yet to learn these truths.
"Carl Iiosia, a young Austrian," it is
said in the reports of one of these demon
strations, "said the condition of the laborer
in this country was worse than in Ger
many." Then let Mr. Rossa go back to
bis Germany at once, and there make his
threats of "blood or bread," to Bismarck,
and see hon* he will faro. Or he can
F.tay and tbido the. fate of any such
menacing demonstrations here. We are
giad to ptrceivo. however, that these
movements in the Western cities abate
somewhat cf their factious character as
they contii.ue before the public, as both
in Chicago ind Cincinnati the last expres
sion was nurcly an earnest appeal for
work, und u case the authorities could
not supply it, for some relief in the
shape of foal and other necessaries of life.
To such" tu appeal there never will be
indifference among the people of this
country. It is tine, starvation is Mich a
mythical e\ent in this laud that many
arc apt to ie incredulous to its cry, but
we all knqjiv that there is danger of depri
vation, wnjitatul suffering in every com
munity, particularly in bard seasons for
laborers. At such limes to furnish work
is the best form of charity, and employ
ers can often, and often do, render the
greatest service to others without other
injury to theimelves than using their
moans in vhat may not be immediately
profitable,but which, when prosperous
times come ngain, they will be glad to
have had done after all. It is better, too,
thnt individuals should do this than a
city or any other government, because
the latter cannot so well discriminate as
to cases of need, or so well decide when
the extra work shall stop, and thus it is
in danger of trnining up a class of labor
dependents such ns constitutes the dan
gerous clement in Paris, and would be
prolific in corruption und municipal
abuses anywhere. To destroy the self
respect?or, ns we should eayin this coun
try, the true citizenship?of tho laborer is
as bad as to starve him; and this is just
what Communism does. Out of an hon
est man, content to take only what he
earns as long ns his ability is unimpaired,
it mnkes a social pirate, preying upon
society to the extent of his opportunity,
and dealing in threats when he has no
thing more formidable. Our 'working
men should shun this foreign viciousucss
as his worst enemy.
Our Idle Classes.?Like unto the
great multitude that no man could num
ber, whom ?5t. John speaks of in the
Apocalypse, is the latter day army of in
capables. They arc immovable sponges
upon relatives, whom they keep forever
poor. They cnunot keep a situation, and
are barely competent to sit at a gato and
collect tickets from a thin stream ofj)as
scrs-in: Thej are the skeletons in nearly
every household, and the abundant cause
of heart-burnings and poverty everywhere
They hang around like whipped curs,
waiting for employment of such a menial
description that none but those utterly
emptied of industry, manhood nud pluck
would accept it. When one contemplates
this heart-burning army of drones, how
^t fires the zeal in praying that parents
may have their eyes opened to the neces
sity of making children work and obey
curly, and to the need of giving them a
good trade! Therule isalmostinvariable,
.that tUo chijd which is not taught to 'obey
before five, and to work before fifteen is
lost. The parents who neg'.cct these vital
duties' have the promising outlook of
seeing their boy become either n sponge
or a thief?the one the halfway house, and
and the other the terminus.
A Ham'Y Woman.?A writer happily
discusses this topic. What spectacle
more pleasing docs tho earth afford than
a happy woman, contented in her sphere,
ready at all times to benefit her little
world by her exertions, and transforming
the berries and thorns of life into roses
of Paradise, by the magic of her touch ?
There are those who are happ\, because
they cannot help it?no misfortunes dam
pen their happy smiles and they diffuse a
j cheerful glow around them, ns they
pursue the even tenor of their way.
They have the secret ol contentment
whos3 value is far above tho philosopher's
stone ; for without seeking th* base ex
change of gold, which may buy some
sort of pleasure they convert everything
j they touch into joy. What their condi
tion is makes no difference. They .may
be rich or poor high or low, ad mi rod or
forsaken by the wicked world, but the
sparkling fountain of happiness bubbles up
in their hearts, and makes them radiantly
beautiful. Though they live in a log
cabin, they make it shine with a lustre
that kings and queens may covet, and
they make wealth a fountain of blessing
to the children of poverty.
Governor Letchor, the other day,
related an incident of tho war. lie said
that in one of the battles before Rich
mond, four flag-bearers had been shot
down, and aoall was mado for a volunteer
to carry the colors. A stripling took the
standard. Jn a few minutes the staff was
snapped by a shot. Tho boy sat down,
unloosed a shoe string, and tied it. lie
'Started in front ngain. Another bullet
splintered the staff. It was then fasten
ed by the other shoe-string, lie then
hardly shook the folds out a second time,
when down fell the flag, struck by a ball
The shoe strings gave out. lie unbut
toned his jacket, ripped his ajhirt to rib
bons, and wrapped the broken rod and
carried the shattered ensign through the
light. Governor Lelcher said: "When
they brought me the boy wtth the shat

and shirt tails, I made him an officer;
and gave him the best sword Virginia

Rougiiiko It.?A few evenings 'ei?c? ;
a Detroit chap who was sparking a west,' ni
side girl wore an Elizabethian ruff, IJs
pecting his coming, she dressed Jierself
for the occasion, aud her ruff, stiff as an
I unrestricted use of satin starch could make
it, was of the most stunning Character.
Tho lover came at tho. orthodox?tiiae,
and was ushered into tho parlor, where '
enchanting maiden and her farther and
mother were seated. Ho was cordially
received, and the evening passed pleasant
ly, although the old folks'tat up a good,
deal longer than the young folks thought
necessary. Finally they went to bed, and
tbe twain were left alone.
A ft er a cert a in amount of bash fulness,
the maiden consented to her lovers re
quest for a kiss. He essayed to take it.
but was met at every point by a bristltug
wall of tariatan and starch. Hccamcup>

cut one of his cars half off. He attempt*
ed to reach the prize over her shoulder,
and a chevaux de feize of lace tickled
his nose, until he was obliged 'to aneeaa.^^
Then the maiden came to his rescue, aud
held down one side of the provoking 'rtfU^1"**
and again tho lover advanced.' Just as -' ?

In Dr. Guthrie'? autobiography men
tion is made of a certain eccentric Dr
Wilson, an ardent missionary eager for
the conversion of the Hindoos. His littlo
foible was an utter disbelief in Ntwton'a
theory o'"gravitation, and an antipathy
to all missionaries who, like Dr. Duff,
made Science the handmaid of ChrUtaoity
What would have been his wrath had ho
listened to the eloquent missionaryjscrmcn
delivered in the nave of Westminster
Abbey by Professor Max Muller, who
prefaced his missiorary observations by
remarks on the science of religion? Tho
professor's sermon or lecture was preced
ed by Hebcr's hymn, never before, wo
believe, beard under such singular associa
tions. The professor's argument, too,
was very novel and strango to the ears of
the conventional supporters of missions.
He argued that no ouo religion could bo
well understood without referring to
others, an I that there was a large amount
of good in each. This may oe sound
teaching. Hut we do not see that singing
the piaises o'Brnhuiinism is the best in
centive to missionary effort and aid of
Christianity. It is plain that missionary
work would be regarded in a different
light from what it is at present, if the
heathen world were in tho pretty com
fortable e mdition in which the learned
professor represents it to be.
