Poetry. To My Wife. Written, during absence, on the Anniversary of our Marriage. BY MELZAR GARDNER.

The world had never loved ma.

As with a year of strength, Its hate to brave; 1 never bowed me to its base control ; And thus my heart became a living grave Of strong affections. Thou didst set them free, And all its treasured wealth belongs to thea. It is a(l thine! O that it were mora And better worth the sacrifice It cost! Kind friends thy pleasant home and all the store ,Of love thy life had gathered these thou lost, J'.ach would have claimed and each have shared part, Now thou hast love for lova and heart for heart. A tvanderar then pooT, friendless and alone- No house no lands no hoarded wealth were mine; Thou wert my all, and thou wert all my own; Ah! I was rich to win a heart like thine! Love that wealth buys, with poverty will fail, But truth like thine is never kept for sale. ""I have given up all I loved for thee alone! " These were thy words, which memory aye will keep, When thou with ma dulst brave the cold world's 'frovfft, And ou my bosom sobbed thyself to sleep! Best pledge of earnest truth thy young heart's fears ; And sweetest proof of love those bridal tears!

The Drunkard's Good Angels. BY T. S. ARTHUR. 1 Come, Ady and Jane, It Is time you were in bed,' said Mrs. Freeman to her two liute girls, about nine o clock ono evening. Ady was nine years old, and Jane was a year and a hall younger. The two children had been silling nt tho work table with their mother, one of them studying her lesson, and the other en gaged on a piece of fancy needle work. I'ana hasn I come yet,' answered Ady. Wo, dear; but it s getting late, and it's time you were in bed. He may not bo at homo for nn hour.' Ady laid ttside her work and left tho table, and Jane closed her books and put them away in her school satchel. 'You can light the lamp on the man- telpieco,' said Mrs. Freeman, after a few moments, looking around as she spoke, when she saw tliut the children had both put on their -bonnets, and were lying their warm capes closo about their necks. Sho understood very well the meaning of this , and therelore, did -not ask a ques tion, although the tears Cmo to her eyes and her voice trembled as sho said It is very cold out to-night, children.' But we won't feci it, mother,' replied Ady. 'We'll run along very quick.' And the two little ones went out, be fore their mother, whoso feelings wero choking her, could say one word more. As they closed tho door after them, and left her alone, sho raised her eyes up wards and murmured, 'God bless and re ward the dear children.' It was a bleak winter night ; and, as tho little adventurers stepped into the street, the wind swept fiercely along, and almost drove them back against the door. But they caught each other firmly by the hands, and bending their little forms to meet the pressure of the cold rushing air, hurried on the way they were go ing, as fast as their feet could move. The streets were dark and deserted; but the children wore not afraid. Love fil led their hearts, and left no room for fear. They did not speak a word to each other as they hastened along. After go ing for a distance of several blocks, they stopped before a house, over the door of which was a handsome gas lamp, bearing the words, 'Oysters and Refreshments.' It was a strango place for two little girls like them to enter, and at such an hour ; Dut alter standing tor a moment, they pushed against the green door, which turned lightly on its hinges, and stepped into a largo and brilliantly lighted bar room. 'Bless us!' exclaimed a man who sat reading at a table, 'here are those babes again!' Ady and June stood still near the door, and looked all around tho room. But not seeing the object of their search, they went up to tho bar, and said timidly 10 a man who stood behind it, pouring liquor into glasses, 'Has Pepa been here to-night V Tho man leaned over the bar until his faco was closo to the children, when he said, in an angry way, 'I don't know anything about your father. And seo here, don t you come here any more. If you do, I'll call my big dog out of tho yard, and muko him bite you Ady and -Jane toll frightened, as well by the harsh manner as tho angrv words ol the man, and they started back Irom him, and were turning toward the door with sad faces, whon tho person who had lirst remarked their entrance, called out loud enough for them to hear him, 'Uomo here, my little girls. The children stopped and looked at him, when he beckoned for them to op p roach, and they did so. 'Are you looking lor your lather r ho asked. Yes, sir,' replied Ady, What did that man at the bar say to you f lie said 1 apa was not here, and that if wo came any more ho would set his big dog on us.' e did!' Yes, sir.' Tho man knit his brows for an instant. Then he said, Who sent .you l.ere V 'Nobody,1 answered Ady. 'Don't your mother know vou hav como r Yes, sir. She told us to go to bed. but we couldn't until papa was at home. And so we came lor him hrst.

Not tho ono who, a few yoars ago, conducted with so much ability, tho case against tha Marine Insurance Compa ny V The same. Is it possible V A little group now formed around tho man, and a good aeni was saiu aoout Freeman, and his fall from sobriety. One who had several times seen Ady and Jane come in and lend him homo as they had just done, said it was a most touching case. 'To see,' said one, 'how passively he yields himself to the littlo things when they come after him. I feel, sometimes, when I see them, almost weak enough to shed tears.' 'They are his good angels,' remarked another; 'but I am afrnid they are not strong enough to lead him back to the paths he has forsaken.' You can think what you please about it, gentlemen,' spoke up the landlord, but I can tell you my opinion ou the subject. I wouldn't give much for a mother who would lot two littlo things like them go wandering about the street, alone, at this time of night.' Ono of those who had expressed in terest in the children, felt angry at this remark, and he reiorted with some bit terness, And I would give less for the man who would make their father drunk 1' 'Ditto to that,' responded one of the company, 'And here's my hand to that,' said an other. The landlord, finding that the majority of his company wero likely to he against him, smothered his angry feelings, and kept silence. A few minutes afterwards, two or three inmates of the bar room went away. ' About ten o'clock on the next morn ing, while Mr. Freeman, who was gen erally sober in the fore part of the day, was in his office, a stranger entered, and, after sitting down, said, 'I must crave vour pardon, before hand, for what I am going to say. Will you promise not to be ofTendod 1' . 'If you offer me an insult, I will re sent it,' said the lawyer. 'So far from that, 1 come with the do- sign to do you a great service.' Very well. Say on," 'I was at Lawson's refectory last night.' Well V And I saw something there that touch ed my heart. If I slept at all last night, it was only to dream ol it. 1 am a lath- n r t.i I I tintm . u.sv 1it,lt fflrla nnrt. love mem lenaeny. kjii, sir i mo thought of their coming out, in the cold I .! J.. nt. I . f. winter night, in search of me, in such a polluted place, makes the blood run cold in my veins.' Words so unexpected coming upon Mr. Freeman when he was comparative ly sober, disturbed him deeply. In spite of all his endeavors to remain calm, he trembled all over. He made an effort to say something in reply, but could not ut ter a word. My dear sir,' pursued tho stranger, you have fulleuby the hand of the mon ster intemperance, and 1 leel that you are in great peril. You have not, how ever, fallen hopelessly. You may yet rise if you will. Lot mo, then, in the name of the sweet babes, who have shown in so wonderful a manner, their love for you entreat you to rise superior to this dead ly foe. Reward theso dear children with the highest blessing their hearts can de sire Come with mo, and sign tho plodge freedom. Let us, though strangers each other, unite in this one act. Come Half bewildered, yet with a new hope in his heart, Freeman arose, and suffer ed the man, who drew his arm within his, to lead him away. Before they sep arated, both had signed the pledge. lhat evening, unexpectedly, and the joy of his family, Mr. Freeman was perfectly sober when he came home.- Alter tea, while Ady and Jane were standing on either side of him, as he sat near their mother, an arm around each 0f ihem, he said in alow whisper, as bent his head down and drew them clo ser, 'You will never have to come for me again. Ihe children lilted their eyes quickly to his face, but half understanding what he meant. I will never go there again,' he add ed, 'I will always stay at home with yu- Ady and Jane, now comprehending what their father meant, overcome with joy, hid their faces in his lap, and wept lor very gladness. Low as all this had been said, every word reached the mother's ear; and while her heart yet stood trembling be tween hope and fear, Mr. Freeman drew I nnrw? frnm hia iwLat ot,t ,1.m,u It ,ho table by which she was sittintr.

ZT1 ot to 1' to Tho following lively description of n journey in old times, in contrast with traveling at tho present day, is from a recent number of tho Muss. Quarterly Review. To say nothing of a journey to Wash ington or New York, mnttcrs of such gravo import as to require 'a note road in meeting,' asking the prayers of tho pious for safe deliverance from porils by sea and perils by land, one could not make ajourney even ol a hundred miles without painstaking preparation and long suffering endurance. If a wiso man you prepared to start on Monday, so as to have the whole week for ' lee way.' You went on Friday or Saturday to the 'siago office,' booked yourscll, and paid tho faro. On Sunday, about sunset, you might see some runner from tho office speering about tho neigh borhood, to make sure of the place and number of your dwelling, in order the more easily to find it in the gray of the morning. You made a compact with the watchman to rap on your window an hour before tho time of sinning; or you had soma queer contrivanco to a waken yourself, such as a bunch of keys, or old iron, suspended by a string passed across the lower part of a candle, which, in four or five hours, would burn down to the mark, set fire to the string, let full tho iron into a wash-basin, and so tnako racket enough to arouse you. You waked twenty times to see if the machinery was all in order, and at last got up before it gave tho signal. You roused the maid, who bustled about to make ready your coffee, hnm, and eggs, while you shaved your chin and packed your chest. At last you hear tho dis tant hern; then the sound of rumbling wheels, of clattering hoofs ; the 'stage' is at the door. You rush resolutely to the 'entry,' and put on and button up your overcoat with desperate haste ; you don your travelling cap, and throw a heavy cloak over your shoulders, while two men lift your heavy trunk, and strain and pull at great straps, to bind it on be hind the coach ; which done, they cry all right ;' and you kiss your mother, wife, or sister, who stands shivering on tho'doorway, holding a dressing-gown to gether with one hand, while the other, ruised above her head, supports the can dle whose flickering light guides you down the steps, and serves to toll the wondering neighbors, with night-capped heads popped out of the windows, who is going away. You take the backseat,' it you are old and ieeble ; the middle one by the window, if you are hearty ; or mount the box, beside the jolly driver, if you are young and vigorous, and want to see the country. (Jrack goes the whip! and away you post, to pick up oth er passengers, and so pass an hour pro paring for tho final start. At lust you are fairly olf ; and tho horses go jog trotting along the plain, walking up the hills, galloping down the slopes, until you como to tho 'changing placo.' You then get out, and warm your toes by the bar room lire, while the panting horses are taken off, and fresh ones are put on; you treat your driver to a horn,' (not of tin,) which drunk, he lights his cigar, and, crying all uboard,' heaves his heavy carcass up into his box, picks up the lines, unu nway you start aguin. in us toiling on, through all the tedious hours of ilia forenoon, stopping to water the horses or to change them five or six times, you arrive at the 'half-way house,' hungry as a hunter, and happy that quarter of your journey is done. After hoarty dinner, you mount again and try to sleep away an hour or so, while the rumbling carriage goes slowly on, with the occasional variety ot a 'breakdown or an 'overset,' until, long after dark, you arrive at tho stopping-place for the night; and, heated, tired, jaded out, you lie down, perchunce in damp sheets, with the poor satisfaction that you have got over nearly fifty miles, and have only fifty moro before you. Lint now, you make the same journey by going quietly to tho station,' after breakfast, with no other impediment than your sack coat and the last new nov el; you take your seat by tho window; you finish the distanco as you finish the first volume; you do your business, re turn home before night, and, if your wife asks you where you 'dined to-day,' you quietly answer, in Portland, or bpringheld, or anywhere else a hundred miles olf, as the case may bo.

LITTELL'S LIVING AGE. rublishtd every Saturday, at 12J cenl$ a Number, or Yearly, in advance, 6. fc E. I.1TTEI.I. It CO., BOSTON. THIS work is conducted in the spirit of Littell's Museum of Foreign Literature, (which was favorably received by tha publio) or twenty years,) aulas it is twice as iaref and appears so otten, we not only give spirit and freshness to it by many things whicn were excluded by a month's delay, but while thus extending our scope and gathering a greater and more attractive variety, are able o to increase the solid and substantial part of our literary, historical, and political harv est, as fully to satisfy the wants of tha American reader. The elaborate and stately Essays of tha Edinburgh Quarterly, and other Reviews; and Blackwood's noble criticisms on Poetry, his keen political Commentaries, highly wrought Tales, and vivid descriptions of rural and mountain scenery; and the contributions to Literature, History, and common lite, by the sagacious Spectator, the sparkling Examiner, the judicious Athenteum, the busy and In dustrious Literary Gazette, the sensible and comprehensive Britannia, the sober and res pectable Christian Observer; these are inter mixed with the Military and Naval reminis cences of Ihe United Service, and with the best articles of the Dublin University, New Monthly, Eraser's, Tail's, Ainsworth's, Hood's, and Sporting Magazines, and of Chambers's admirable Journal. We do not consider it beneath our dignity to borrow wit and wisdom from Punch; and, when we think it good enough, make use of the thun der of the The Times. We shall increase our variety by importations from the conti nent of Europe, and from the new growth of the British colonies. The steamship has brought Europe, Asia, and Africa, into our neighborhood, and will greatly multiply our connections, as Merch ants, Travelers, and Politicians, with all parts of the world ; so that, much more than ever, it now becomes every intelligent American to be, informed of the condition and changes of foreign countries. And this not only because of their nearer connextion with ourselves, but because the nations seem toba hastening, through a rapid process of change, to soma new state of things, which the merely poli tical prophet cannot compute or foresee. Geographical Discoveries, the progress of Colonization, (which is extending over the whole world,) and Voyages and Travels, will be favorite riiatter for our selections ; and in general, we shall systematically and very fully acquaint our readers with the great de partment of Foreign affairs, without entirely neglecting our own. While we aspire to make the Living Aok desirable to all who wish to keep themselves informed of the rapid progress of Ihe move ment to Statesmen, Divines, Lawyers, and physicians to men of business and men of leisure, it is still a stronger object to make it attractive to their wives and children. We believe that we can thus do some good in our day and generation; and hope to make tha work indispensable in every well-informed family. We say indispensable, because in this day of cheap literature it is not possible to guard against the influx of what is bad in taste and vicious in morals, in any other way than by furnishing a sufficient supply of a healthy character. Tha menial and . moral appetite must be gratified. We hope, lhat by " winnowing the wheat from the chaff." bv nrovidintr abundantly for ... . ..j the imagination, and by a large collection of JJiogranhy, V oyages and travels, History, and more solid matter, we may produce a work which shall be popular, while at the same time it will aspire to raise the standard ol public taste. vcr Letters in commendation of the plan and execution of the work from Judge Story, Chancellor Kent, Dr. Bethune, and Messrs. Jared Sparks, W. II. Prescolt, George Ban croft, and George Ticknor, have bten publish ed in lormer advertisements. Postaoe. When sent with a cover it is ranked as a pamphlet, and cost cents.

And as ha is desirous of woman ap proximating her Hue sphere of usefulness, a perfect equality with man, and as the ad vanced state of education in this country now demands that sha also shall reap the benefit of solid scientific acquirements, he would encourage females lo devote a portion of their time and talents lo the acquisition of knowl edge in the above branches which as woman so intimately concems her own welfare and her station in life as a wife and mother. To any such who may think fit to place them selves under his instruciion, particular csra and attention shall be paid, so that they shall have no cause to regret having entered open a study both elevating and useful in its ten dencies, though tomelimet irksome or tedious . in its preliminary steps and at present loo , unusual for females in this country.
