THE TALL LADY'S APOLOGY.
Uphraid me not-I cannot feel,
Eternal love for thee;
A mao n ho is but five feet high,
Must not aspire to me.
I wonder sir. how you supposed,
That I would look so low;
I do not like to have it said,
I have so small a beau !
Besides. you must acknowledge, sir,
The bargain scarcely fair;
We never. sir, could make a match,
Although, we made a pair.
You know I'm tall, oh! very tall
Resembling much a steeple;
And, oh! I hate to look upon
Your stunted, little people.
'Tis true, the novelists have said,
A veil is o'er Love's eyes;
But I can see. (though -im 's the view,)
That you arc under size!
'Tis usual for a wire to take
Her husband by the arm;
Ti'nt he vihene'er they take a walk,
May shield her from all hai in;
But such a favor I'd ne'er ask
Frot such a little lover;
Wheii e'er we wa'k'd. I'd always fear
Some dog would him run over.
I own my sight is very good,
A glass I never wear;
Butt such as you I cannot see,
Without a glass, I swear!
Then. fare thee well, my little man
I ask no parting kiss;
My corsets will tint let me stoop,
To ghint a boon like ihis.
I will not weep, lest I should hurt,
So delicate a thing;
The tears that fall from such a height
Would ruin on it bring.
Sn eet manikin! Don't drown yourself
In my wash-bowl, I pray;
For fear of this, I'll tell the maid,
To move the bowl away.
If ever you should love again,
Love on a smaller plan;
For be- assur'd. n six foot girl,
Won't snit a little man!
Edgefldd C. H. r.
Shadows of pamt years,
- Of happiness and smiles
Of inys bese: with tears
Of pleasures girt with toils-.
As ve flit along.
T'ho' ye bring with ye,
With then voice of song,
Strains of isery;
Still I love to trace,
As ye pass me by,
E'en fir a noinetit's space,
The faided shade ofjoy!
Voices seem to swell
Abmove me, and around;
Many a tale they tell
Uf joys tno longer found :
Of sies that ruthless Time
Htuth wither'd long ago.
Like lnw'ret past their pri~ne
Sore, silently anad slow ;
But yet to me they bring
linck dreamis of ithier dlavs
A visione of life's spring.
The'heart's ownt earliest lays !
Memory htath her hour-s
Of pleasume and of pain :
Of sunashine, storm, and show'"rs,
That fade and sptring again.
Yet when the shadows fly,
And voices greet the ear,
In all the pride of mnystery,
I love the sound~s to hear;
And pensively to trace,
As shadows pass ine by,
E'en fhr a mtomnit's space,
Th'le flittinig formt oh joy !
N . New Era. LEJGH CLEFF.
Thought thick dlarkmess glooms before tis,
And a thonsand tempests blend:
Hope's bright rajinbow bending o'er us,
Tells its that the storm will end:
Chearinig life of half its sorrow,
Chasing hatlf its ills awaty;
WV iilh the stolmeee that to-mnorr-ow
Will be brighter than to-day !
Radiant star! shine on forever
In the I''u-un ,'s distatit skips;
Farther down Life's rapid river
There the land of promise lies.
On wve glid'-. of Glory dreniting,
Pride and Pleasure at the htelmn;
Ever art thon brightly pleamntivg
O'er that dim atnd'distant realm!
Though thou art as false and fleeting,
As the phantoms of the glen;
Still puirsuing. yet still retreating
Chteitiing all thte race of men t:
Yet not onie ofitemt wvoild barter
Thlat celestial smile oef thi ne,
For the glory-giving charter,
When the homeless stranger, sighing
O'er the last, last sand of life,
On the strength of God relying,
Nerves for him the final strife;
Ifell mayti all its legions rally
Fiends inay startile or alhre
If thon lightest Denth's dark valley,
He shall tread its -rloom secure!

HARD TO BEIAT.
I have lately received from <ome of my
farming frieids n few stalks of laden anid
other sorts of Cor. from 4 to 10 cars of
corn on a sinele stalk. One very curious
stalk was found in a paper of Chmna Beans,
and it wns left to grow with the Hean, a
solitary stalk. The gentleman n- ho raised
it was induced to take the tassels from an
adjoining pnitch of Corn, and shake the
polen of the flower over the silk of the
lonely stalk, and the result is tliat the said
stalk has eight pretty good ears on it, and
what is most sinenlar is that they are a
deep red Flint Carn. And now. Sir. Edi
tor, as my trtmpeter is nut of th way, I
will show some rare specimens of Corn
rnised in oy enrden. this year. Several
stalks .f Baden Corn, with eight good ears

henthah atnd lives of thonsntuds are involved.

from the distillery wh'ch ba rely keeps thie
cows alive. The swill is given themt warm,
