on thy brow.
And I could love to di
To leave untasted life's dark, bitter streams ;
By thee, os erst in childhood, lie,
And share thy dreams.
And I must linger here
To stain the plumage of my sinless years,
And mourn the hopes of childhood dear
With bitter tears.
Aye, 1 must linger hero,
A lonely branch upon a withered tree,
Whose last frail leaf untimely sere,
Went down with thee.
Oft from life's withered bowey,
In 8til communion with the past, I turn
And muse on thee, the only flower
In memory's urn.
And when the evening pale
Bows like a mourner on the dim blue wave,
I stray to hear the night winds' wail
Around thy grave.
Where Is thy spirit flown ?
I gaze above—thy look is imaged there—
I listen, and thy gentle tone
Is on the air.
O, come while here I press
My brow upon thy grave, and in those mild
And thrilling tones of tenderness,
Bless, bless thy child.

{The following article was sent to us for publi
cation as the composition of a "school girl."]
Let the hearth be ever so bumble there
is hovering around it an angel of mercy.
The little infant, the mother's bud of prom
ise, whose sparkling eyes, dimpled cheek,
and merry laugh, wjll never cease to live
fresh upon her memory ; and as she moves
each little plaything, or touches eaeh va
cant dress, or moves from sight the little
shoes and stockings, how forcibly will she
be reminded that in that bright home Bhe
has an angel whoso influence is felt even
here on earth ; aud down sits the mother
and father shedding tears of sorrow, whilst
they are encouraged to bear tho burdens of
life, with an assurance that their angel
band has already began iu the land of
Spirits.
It was a balmy night in June, and lights
were beaming from every window in the
farm-house ; the guests had assembled, and
silence prevailed until it was broken by
the faltering voice of the aged pastor,
when all eyes were turned to witness a
scene that no pen can portray. She came
forth leaning on the arm of her young hus
band, and oh ! how sweet she looked,
dressed in her long, flowing robe of white,
a wreath of orange blossoms encircled her
hair, while her long, flowing veil fell care
lessly over a form that the sculpturer might
envy for a subject. But, ere the honey
moon had closed, death had claimed her for
his victim ; the fond parents had buried
from their sight, one that was ever so dear.
She seemed at her home like a ministering
angel ; and when death had disrobed her
of this mortal coil, she was more like an
angel than ever. How often, when her
bereft partner sat at twilight, his mind
would wander through the vista of time,
and with eyes glistening with tears of sad
ness, would console himself by knowing
that his forsaken home had an angel robed
in white hovering over it.
What awakens in tho mind a greater
emotion than the love of a mother, when
she presses her first-born to her bosom,
watches over it, and longs to hear the first
lisping word, "Mamma," and the first rc
aponsive smile is hailed with such eestacy ;
and as each little dimple is formed in its
cheek, the doting parents often realize in
the little pratler afire-side angel on earth?
Little -did they think that in a few short
months their fond hopes were not to be re
alized long on earth, for there, shrouded
and palled, lay their first bud of promise, so
suddenly nipped by the icy fingers of
death.
Let us look hack at our late civil war,
and see how many homes were left deso
late of their fire-side angels, who had laid
their lives at the shrine of liberty. They
left the family hearth, perchance, reluct
antly ; and many an aching heart they left,
who prayod daily for their safe return ; but
alas! in an unexpected ho'ur, the tidings
of death was echoed and re-eehoed to that
home. Mourning and sadness depicted
every face, for their loved one had fallen a
a martyr in a distant land, with no kind
hand to raise the aching head, no hand to
wipe away the fallen tear ; but there
be lay, a stranger in a strange land, with
no one near him to shed a tear of love on
his bier, but away from that spot, rendered
dear to them, were gathered a group of
friends to weep bitter tears for their loved
ones.
* Let each of us live so we may be an an
gel of mercy, whilst we are even clothed
in the habiliments of earth ; hat strive still
more arduous to be an angel, when death
disrobes us of that which is earthly, and in
our sphere of usefulness, let us, by our
kindling influence, teach some useful les
son to those that are akin to us. The
nmuher of fire-side angels ean ne're be
told ; but, we may well say, every fire-side
baa its angel.

Dr. Jackson , —Dear Sir: I have been fre

Hoofland's German Bitters, I depart for once
from my usual course, to express my full con
viction that, for general debility of the system, and
especially for Liter Complaint, it is a safe and
valuable preparation. In some cases it may fail ;
