Queer John has sung how money goes, But how it comes, who knows t Who knows 1 Why, every Yankee mother's son Can tell you how "tho thing" is done. It comes by honest toil and trade ; By wielding sledge and driving spade. And building ships, balloons and drums ; And that' the way the money comes. How dors it come 1 Why, as it goes, By spinning, weaving, knitting hoso, By stitching shirts and coats for Jews, Erecting churches, renting pews, And manufacturing boots and shoes; For thumps, end twists, and cats, and hues, And heads and hearts, tongues, lungs thumbs And that's the way the money comes. How does it como 1 The way is plain By raising cotton, corn and cane ; By wind and steam, lightning and rain ; By guiding ships across the main ; By building bridges, roads, and dams, And sweeping streets, and digging clams, With whistles, hi's ! and ho's ! and hums ! And that's the way the money comes. The money comes how did I say 1 Not always in an honest way : It comes by tricks as well as toil ; But bow is that 1 why slick as oil, By putting peas in collVe bags, By swapping watches, knives and nags, And peddling wooden clocks and jdums ; And that's tho way tho money comes. How does it come ? wait, let nic sr H very seldom comes to me ; It come, by rule, I guess, and Sometimes, by riding on a rail , But oftencr that's the way it go From silly belles and fast young It comes in big, nay, little um.t. Aye, that's the way the money and TIIE GAMBLER'S OR, THE CARD-TADLE AU TWO SCENES FROM RE , BY JAMES FKAKKMX Ft "Let 09 stop hero, llorry.

"Now, Harry, for a little play 1" tbe tempter gayly exclaimed. The moment for action bad arrived, and be approached bis prey with serpent-like cunning. "Of course, wo won't gamb'io; we'll play for a trifling stake just enough to make tho gamo healthfully exciting. What do you soy t" "Anything anything for sportl" the young man deliriously repliod.

"There is cause why these two should not be united 1" "And who, sir, are you 7" the astonished clergyman asked.

As tbo speaker paused, Jenny Groy, (who had. at tho first interruption, instinctively shrunk away from bim to whom she was about pledging her irrevocable vows ) siarieo lorwara a step with the surprised ana nan joyiui words : "Jaspor Cleveland 1" "You ore right," be said ; "I am Jnspor Cleveland, tbe brother of that Henry Clevo. land, to whom yon wore once betrothed and, who was driven to fill a suieido's grave by the biacK viiliany oi lib irauorous menu j.uijur Mnnrnn !'

There was no exhibition or unwomanly loot ing npon tbe part of Jenny Gray at the con clusion of this extraordinary scene. Sbe real ized, sbuddoriugly, tbe lull extent ot tne wretchedness from which 6he had escaped; and turning without a sigh from tbe pros trate form of Mouroe, she took tho arm of her friend and preserver, and left the church. One brief addition, and inis brief uie-recoru is couiple. Just one year afterward, tbere was a nappy bridal colobrated in this same villago, and, as before, the lovely Jenny Gray was one of the parties. But Jasper Cleve land was now the bridegroom and a happier one it would be hard to find. Both had sor rowed over tbe untimely death of the ill luted brother, and their couipauiuDship in sorrow bad prepared tho way lor a beauuiui and nn dvinir love. And the same day bo striking was tbe coincidence witnessed tbe miserable death ef tbe wretched and sinful Edgar Monroe, who fell in a duel in one of the v eatorn States, meeting his death at the hands of one whom bo bad lrreparauiy wrongeu ana uis- bonorod.

The two "jims" are passing among the current literature of the day : MY CHILD'S ORIGIN. BT DAVID BARKER. One night as old St. Peter slept He loft the door of Heaven ajar, When through a little angel crept, And came down with a fulling star. One summer as tbe blessed beams Of morn approached, my blushing brido Awakened from pleasing dreams, And found that angel by her side. God grant bat this I ask no more ; That when he leaves this world of sin, He'll wing bis way to that blessed shore, And Cud tho door of Heaven again. ST. rETEIt'S REPLY. Full eighteen hundred years or mora I've kept my doors securely tied, Tbere is uo "littlo angel" strayed, Nor has been missing all the whilo. I did not sleep as you supposed, Nor bavo the door of Heaven ajar ; Nor has a "little angel" left, And gono down with a falling star. Go ask that "blushing brido" and sco If sho won't frankly own and say, That when sho found that angel babe, Sho found it by the good old vay. God grant but this I ask no moro ; That should your numbor still enlarge, That you'll not do aa heretofore And lay it to old Peter's cbargo. St. Peter. Tho Lost Pants. A VERY AMUSING SKETCH. Tbo following is a passage from tho rich articles which aro embraced in the literary re mains of Willis Gaytord Clark. It is only necessary to premise that tho writer is a Philadelphia student, who after a stolen fortnight among tbo gayoties of a Washing ton "season," nods tiiuisoii ittirougn tne re missness of a chum) at Baltimore), on his way ome, without a cunt iu his pocket. He stops at a fashionablo hotel, nevertheless, whoro, lafter tarrying a day or two, be finally, at tho beel of hjiruil dinner, omnes solus in tus private apartmeut, tlankod with abundaut champagne and Burgundy, resolves to disclose all to the landlord. Summoning a servant, be says : "Ask tbe landlord to step up lo my room, and bring bis bill." He clattered down stairs, giggling, and shortly thereafter bis master appeared. Ho entered wun a generous smile, mat, made me hope for the bost that bis house afforded, and that, just then, was credit. "How much do I owo you T said 1. He banded me the bill with all tbe grace of polite expectancy. "Lot mo soe seventeen dollars, now very reasoanble I But, my dear sir, tbe most disa greeablo part is now to be disclosed. 1 grieve to inform you that I am at present out of money ; dui i Know, by your pnuaniuro pic looks, that you will be satisfied when 1 tell yoa that tY had it I would give it to you with ncqaalibed pleasure. But you see my not having tne cnaDge wuu mo is tue reason why 1 don't do it ; and I am sure you will let the matter stand and Bay no more about if l am a stranger io you mat s a fact ; but iu the place where I como from, all my acquaintances know mo, as easy as con be." Tbe landlord turned all colors. "Where do you live, anyhow 1" "In Washing 1 should say Philadel pbia." His eyes flashed with angry disappoint ment. "1 see how it is, mister ; my opinion is that you are a blackleg. You don't know where your borne is. Yoa begin with Washington and then drop it for Philadelphia. You must pay tbe bill." "isoi 1 cam." "Then I'll take your clothes ; if I don't blow me tight." "Scoundrel 1" said I, rising bolt upright, "do it if yoa dare 1 da it 1 and leave tbe rest to me r Tbere were no more words.

Attracted by bhiuing lamps in the portico of a new hotel, a few squares from my lodg ings, 1 entored, recorded my name on the books and bespoke a bed. Everything was fiesh and neat ; every servant was attentive ; all argued woll. 1 kept myself closely cloaked, pulled a cigar, aud retired lo bud lo mature my plot. "Waiter, juBt brush my clothes well, my hue fellow," said 1, in the inormng, as no en tered the room ;"uiind the pantaloons don't spill auytbiug from the pockets. Tbere is money iu bulb."

You may keep the others, if you find thorn, and in exchango for tho hun dred and fifty dollars which yoa give me, their contents are yours." The next evening, with new inexpressibles, and one hundred and filty dollars in my purse, I called on my guardian in Philadelphia for sixty dollars. He gave me a lecture on collegiuto desertion that I shall not forget. I cnclosod the money back to my honrabla laudlord by the first post, settled my bill at old Crusty's, the first publican, and got my trunk by mail. Tiir Okanok Gnu, of Coi.bMiiis.
