[i'rom the New Monthly Magaxiue.] • “ THE DESERTED HOUSE. B* Mrs. Hemaxs. Gloom is upon thy lonely hearth. 0 .'ileut house! once filled with mi.iir, Sorrow is in the breezy sound 01 thy tall poplars whispering round. ! iic shadow of departed hours Hangs dim upon thy early dowers: Even in thy sunshine seems to brood Something more deep than solitude. I uir ait thou, fair to stranger's ga" *, Mine own sweet Home of other days! My children’s birth place!—vet for mu It is too much to look on tliee! Too much! for all nbout thee spread, I feel the memory of the dead, And almost linger for the feet 1 iiat never more my step shall meet. T^hc looks, the smiles,—all vanished now. F ollow me where thy roses blow; 1 lie echoes of kind household words Aic with me midst thy singing-birds. fi.l my heart dies, it dies away In yearnings for what might notstav, I or love which ne’er deceived my trust, Foi all which went with “dust to dust." M hat now is left me, hut to raise F roni thee, lorn spot! my spirit's ga/e, Ro lift through tears my straining eyo I p to my Father’s House on higl”’ Oil! many arc the mansions there,* Rut not in one hath grief a share! • No haunting shades from things gone by t May there o'ersweep the unchanging sky. And ti;£y n^> there, whose lung-loved mien j In earthly home no more is seen; i Whose places, where they smiling sate, Are left unto us desolate. We tniss them when the hoard is spread, , We tniss them when the prayer is said; Upon our dreams their dying eyes • In still aud mournful fondness rise. But they are where these longings vain Trouble nn more the heart and brain, The sadness of this aching love , Dims not our Father’s House above. 4 Ye are at rest, and l in tears,v Ye dwellers of immortal spheres! « Under the poplar houghs 1 stand, And mourn the broken household bar..'.. « But by your life of lowly faith, And by your joyful hope in death, Guide me, till on some brighter shore, The severed wreath is bound once moic. Hoiy ye were, and good, and true! ! No change can cloud my thoughts of you, ; Guide me like you to live and die, And reach my father's House on high! F. II. * * -'In my Father’s house are many mansions.’’—St.John, i chop. xiv. j t Fiom an ancient Hebrew dirge—“Minim for the ’ mourner, and not for the dead; for he is at rest, and we in te a rs.” ^ —600 jT’rom the l.’tica Sentinel am! Gazette.' BETTY BROOM. A country gi.l was Betty Broom, That went to live in town; ; And never felt she so much tip, As when she first came down. She had a very pretty face, A heart above disguise, * And yet she could at any time, < Throw dust in people’s eyes. < Fur Retly Broom was a chamber maid, And swept her mistress’room; And her mistress said site ne’er before Had found so stout a JiroouX. A fireman, young, and straight and tal!, To Betty courting goes; "Whs it not strange that being in love, lie should neglect his hose.' Huoth lie “I am a fireman bold, And isn’t it a shame, That nil my enginc-ui/y, Cannot put out this flamev Ho swore that loss of wager'd pt’; < Ne’er put him in a pet; j And yet he swore he’d hang himself, If he should lose his Bet. i H And he declared come weal, come woe, Fiom her he ne’er would part, . For though lie long’d to ring her hand, ‘ He ne’er would wring her heart. TVhciieVr he talk’d about bis love, So much on vows he ran, That' all his friends declared he was A promising young man. “Besides.” said they, “Ills constancy, No trifle can impair; He loves good living and of course (’an ne’er forget his/i/rc.” ’Tis true he was a farmer bred, And that for lack of pence, Bui then he is a gentleman. For be has learned to fence. 1 wonder how young men can bear To promise, sigh and flatter; ■ Tis plain that matrimony now 1 Is made a money matte... And so this proved, for he was false; And then you know what follows. Miss Betty sued him,gained her cause. And changed iicr gtief for dollars. He rav’d and stamp’d in useless rage, Made many fiery speeches, And swore ’tv/as a degenerate age, V\ hen women sited for breaches. m _LT. K. B.

We become more important and res pected among men, and existence itself is doubly enjoy* od with this our softer self. Misfortune loses half its anguish beneath the soothing influence of her smiles, and triumph becomes more triumphant when shared with her. Without her what is man? A roving and icsde.ss being; driven at pleasure by romantic specula tion, and cheated into misery by fulilo hopes—the mad victim oi untamed passions, and the disappointed pur-1 suer of fruitless joy 3.
