To the toil-worn aun burnt husbandman, who
has fallen asleep in despair, and who erer feared

of labors, the sweet dream came like a soft aumnicr
shower upon the parched and dusty Acids: and as
he dreamed, be saw the green corn rising in goodly

And as the husbandman rlcpt on, the fantastic
spirits who attended the dream flitted about him,
and spread a ear confusion over the hannv vision.
for, as he gased upon the golden ears, a purple and
scariet cioua seemed to oversnanow him, while
round abiut he heard the peuling of bells, the sine.

and in the intervals, there came tho shouts as of
glad friands at the harvest home. Then the purple

spirits, with their ling, shadowy arms, drew him

But the Dream flew on to a guilty prisoner, who

and the black, damp fetters which dune like cold

was opened, the cold chains fell awny, and re

But the blessed hope which the gentle dream had

There are two ways of getting through the world.
Some men have the knack of "getting along,"
while others "work their way." The man who
"gets along" is always devising some expedient by
which to shirk the primal curse or rather bless
ing of labor. He starts a "gilt lottery," or ex
hibits a fat hog to the gating populace at 12 cents
per head. He invents a quick medicine, warranted
to cure all the "ilia that flesh is heir to," and gets
a minister to indorse it; he advertises "five hun
dred receipts for making a fortune in loss than no
lime," offering them to the gullible puhlie for the
extraordinary price of one dollar, poet paid; or lie
tarns politician, and is rewarded with a courtship
to the Fejeo Islands. He is always changing the
object of his pursuit, now ruuning in one direction
ana now another, and this he cilia " getting

lie has his "ups and downs," but tbsy are only
the undulations which carry him steadily over the
waves of lifo's ocean. With continued practice
comes skill and that is always in demand. So
he "works hit nay" upwards and is known as a
"riting man." But he duet not go np like a rocket
to come down like its stick. His progrete it grad

Of heather belli and ruses I

Its budding love uncloses 1
Still paint npon life's noon, the gold
And purple of the dawning;
And let my manhood's sun heboid
The dew of boyhood's morning I
I call to mind the summer day,
The early harvest mowing,
The sky with sun and cloud at flay,
Aod flowsrs with broeiet blowing I
When, wild with joy, I pressed his laws,
A new found treasure, to me.
And heard along the harvest way
Their musie chanted through me,
The glory of those golden boure
Seemed brighter fur that singing,
From summer birds and meadow flowers
A tweeter welcome bringing.
New light on home-seen nature beamed,
New glory over woman ;
And daily life and duty seemed
No longer poor and common.
I woke te find the simple truth
Of fact and feeling better,
Than all the dreams that held my youth
A still repining debtor.
That Nature gives her husband, Art,
The themes of sweet discoursing ;
The tender idols of the heart
In every tongue rehearsing.
Why dreams oi lands of gold and peril,
Of knight and loving lady,
When farmer boy and barefoot girl
Were Wandering there already I
I saw though all familiar things
The romance underlying;
The joys and griefs that plume tbeir wings
Of fancy skyward flying.
I saw the same blithe day return,
The tame sweet fall of eren.
That rose on wooden Craigie-burn,
And tank on crystal Devon.
I matched with Scotland'! heathery bills
The sweet-briar and the clover,
With Ayr and Doon, my native rills.
Their wood hymns chanting over.
O'er rank and pomp, as he has teen,
I taw the man uprising;
. No longer common or unclean,
The child of God't baptising I
My erring pride beheld the worth
Of life among the lowly,
The bible of hit Cotter's heart
Hod made my own more holy.
And if at times an evil strain,
To lawless love appealing,
Broke in upon the tweet refrain
Of pure and healthful feeling.
It died upon the eye and ear.
No inward answer gaining ;
No heart bad I to tee or hear
The discord and the staining,
Lei those who never erred, forget
His worth, in vain be waitings,
Sweet Soul of Song 1 I own my debt
Uncancelled by hit feelings I
Lament who will the ribald lino
Which telle his lapse from duty,
How kissed the maddening lipt of wine
Or wanton onee of beauty ;
But think, while falls that shade between
The erring one aud Heaven ;
That he who loved like Magdalen,
Like her may be forgiven.
Not his the song whose thunderous chime
Eternal echoes render
The mournful Tuscan's haunted rhyme.
And Milton's starry splendor I
But who his human heart has laid,
To nature's bosom nearer ?
Who sweetened toil like him, or paid
To love a tribute doarer 7
Through all his tuneful art, how strong
The human feeling gusheet
The very moonlight of hit song
Is warm with tmilet and blushes t

So "Bonnie Doon" but tarry ;

TREATMENT OF WOMEN.
A Iliudoo law tars. "Strike not even with a
blossom, a wife, thoueh she be eulltvof a thousand
faults." The English law lots yon "hit her again"
with what tbe blossom grows on. Thit difference
opent a fertile field of comparison between tbe
northern and nouthern races. Ibe Hindoo law or
urisprudenee it the primeval source of that which
governed all the Southern nations of antiquity, in

through the lloman channel, has ever prevailed in
modern France, Spain and Italy. According to
to this law. marriage ia a contract between eouala.
aud distinguishes the rights and liabilities of nei
ther. Hence a wile retains all ber rights of prop
erty and business, which tbe possessed before.
And among all tbe races lb us governed, all or whom
are Southern, beating of wives is illegal and infa
mous. Tha English common law comet th "'ujh
Northern sources, springs from a code or codes
which have governed Northern races: and its lead-
feature! are found among the dormant, Scandina
vians, and otber leutomu tribes, and among the
Ituttiaae and other Sclavoniaot. According to the
common lawt of Teutunie origin, and eoming im
mediately rrom the Baxoct, marriage it a contract
between awequalt, which extinguishee tho legal
existence of tue wife, transfers ber property to ber
husband, aad awUMintee him to give her moderate
correct ion, which according to Justice Buller is
" with a etiok no bigger than his thumb." With all
these) Northern races, beating of wives bat been
common, aad it ttiil known, though becoming lest
frequent la eur eouutry, we seldom hear of
wife beaten by a Freuchautn, Spaniard or Italian.
And who bae aoi beard of tuon outrages by tbe
(iennant, Irish, or Anglo-Saxons f Then how great
is tbe difTorence between the Northern and Southern
raoes io attention and deference to women T The
gallantry of the latter ia proverbial. So is the
tyranny of the former. Among the Russian peas
antry, a bride at her wedding presents to the bride
groom a whip, entreating him to ate it whenever
she deserves it. And he m sure to think afterwards,
that she deserves it frequently. Tbe maxim of the
English law is that a wife is eitiliter saermim .- i. e.
Ityallif dead. . Then, in the English sawge we find
frequent allusions to domestic discipline. Here
