TOE FIRST SNOW.FALL.
by Jims nusscuL lowell.
The snow had began In the gloaming,
And busily all the night .
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white.
Every pine, and fir, and hemlock,
Won ermine too dear for an earl,
And the poorest twig on the elm tree
Was fringed Inch-deep with pearl.
From sheds now roofed with Carrara
Game Ohsnticleer's muffled crow,
The dtlff rails were softened to swan's down
And still fluttered down the snow.
I stood and watched byathe window
The noiseless work of tbe sky,
And tbe sudden flurries of snow-birds,
Like brown leaves whirling by.
I thought of a mound in sweet Auburn,
Where a little headstone stood
IIow the flakes were folding it gently,
As did robins the babes in the wood.
Up spoke our little Mabel,
Saying, " Father, who makes the enow 7 "
And I told her of the good All Father,
Who watches his children below.
I remember the gradual patience
That fell from tbe cloud-like snow,
Flake by flake, hearing and hiding
The scar of that deep-stabbed woe.
And again to the child I whispered,
"The snow that husheth all,
Darling, the Merciful Father
Alone can make it fall."
Then, with eyes that saw not, I kissed her,
And she, kissing back, could not know
That my kiss was given to her sister,
Folded close nnder deepening snow.
Lost in the Wood, and toond Shot. Ono
day last week, John Morrison and Thomas
Daniels were hunting on tho hills north of Mil
ford village, and not being familiar with the
country, wero lost. Daniels loft Morrison, but
could not find him, and after three days search
ing by the citizens he was discovered lying on
his back, his feet under him, his gun on his
ureasi, ngnuy ciaspea in ins nana, with a ter
rible and fatal wound in his forehead. lie may
have shot himself, to terminate his sufferings
from hunger and cold. Bangor Whig.
Presentation. Mr. John Hennessy, of
Lispenard street, on Thursday evening, was
presented with an elegant gold watch by Fer
nando Wood, in behalf of the " National De
mocracy of New York." Mr, Hennessy respond
ed in an appropriate manner, and declared that
tho Irish of New York are in favor of tho Union,
and that, if necessary, he is ready to go to
South Carolina to help to put down treason by
A Courageous Girl. A few nights ago, a
young girl in York, Pa., while returning from
churcb,was seized by a ruffian, who thrust his
thumb in her mouth to prevent alarm from be
ing given, at the samo time dragging her in an
alley. Tho girl bit his thumb as severely as
she could, when the scoundrel made a violent
jerk to free himself, and in the effort broke out
three of her teeth I She then escaped from
him and got home without further violence.
Her safety depended upon her physical pow
ers, which were, fortunately, adequate to tho
An ingenious attorney, who nlways made it
a point to get the case, was applied to by a man
who had stolen some pork, to defend him. Ac
cordingly, in his usual inventive way, he ruined
tho principal evidence on which the plaintiff
relied, and tho jury brought in a verdict of
not guilty. After the verdict was declared, as
me leuow was leaving ine courthouse, he whis
pered to his attornoy thus: "Squire, what shall
1 do with the pork, for I have got it yet?"
" Eat It," replied the lawyer, " for tho jury say
you did uot steal it."
A supernumerary was once intrusted to de
liver the following message to Lord Randolph,
in tbe play :
" My lord, the banquet waits," but having
lost the run of the sentence, he called out, amid
the roars of the audience, " Mr. Randolph, your
supper has been ready for some time."
" Ah I " said a pious Sunday School teacher j
" ah, Caroline Jones, what do you think you
would have been without your good father and
pious mother ? " "I suppose, mum," said Caro
line, who was very much struck with tho soft
appeal, " I suppose, mum, as I should ha' been
A child of a shoemaker, in one of the more
fertile counties in Oregon, hid, a few weeks
since, one of his father's boots in a hole dug in
the vegetable garden. The next morning, one
of the principal attractions in the enclosure was
a leather-treo loaded with brogans.
Tho New York Post states that Henry Ste
vens, of this country, has bought Humboldt's
library just ns ho left it. The catalogue con
sists of twelve thousand titles about six thou
sand bound volumes, and the rest small books
and pamphlets. Many of the books nre very
bulky and costly.
Female Skaters. The gay lads and lasses
waltz and polka on skates in tho Central Park,
New York. A Miss Wilson is considered the
star, and it is averred that she can double shuf
fle with her skates on.
Friends' Meeting. Mrs. Eliza P. Gurney,
a Minister of the Society of Friends, (widow of
the late Joseph John Ourncy, of Norwich, Eng.
land,) preached an impressive sermon in Bos
ton a few evenings ago.

IMPROVED TIGHT-STITCH SEWING
A few of Uie many reasons why these Sewing
Machines are prej erred aboce all others.
1. They are remarkably simple In their con
struction. A child can operate tbeu, and
understand the mechanism.
2. They ore the strongest Sewing Machine
made. It Is almost Impossible to break or get
mem oui oi oruer.
3. They are sure in their operation; finishing
the work In a unifqrmly perfect manner.
4. They make a tight lock-stitch, alike on both
sides of the work, which cannot be unravelled.
5. They stitch, hem, bind, fell, run, and gather,
0. They sew equally wtll the lightest and the
7. They sew over the heaviest seams without
changing the tension or breaking the finest
8. They use any No. of Cotton, Thread, or
Silk, directly from the spool.
9. They use a straight needlo; curved ones
are liable to break.
10. The needle has a perpendicular motion.
This Is absolutely necessary for heavy work.
11. They have a wheel feed; none others are
in constant contact with tbe work.
12. They run easily and almost noiseless.
13. They are not liable to oil the dress of the

10. They do not form ridges on tbe under side
of the work, nor ravel out, nor are they waste
ful of thread, as Is the case with all chain-stitch
17. They are capable of doing a greater range
of work, and In a more perfect manner, than any
other Sewing Machine, as is proved by tbe result
