Darby and Joan.
The annexed fable, although perhaps not new
to every reader, pdesessda a great deal of merit,
and will richly reward all who read it fur the few
seconds they exhaust in attending to its detail and
moral. It teaches an admirable lessor., and one
that may be diligently and profitsbly studied.
The story of Darby and Joan is as old as the
poles; but, we do not know to whom we are in
debted for its funniest versification.
Whos Darby saw the setting sun,
lie swung his scythe, and home he run;
Sat down, drank off his pint, and said...
"My work is done, I'll go to bed."
".[y work is done !" retorted Joan
"'My work is done!' your constant tone ;
Put hapless woman ne'er can say
'My work is done,' till judgment. day."
Here Darby hemmed and scratched his head,
'T+ answer what his Joan had said;
Bat all in vain, her clack wont on
"Yes, woman's work is never done!
You men en sleep all night, but we
Must toil." "Whose fault. is that?" queth he.
" I know your weaning," Joan replied.
It";, Si:, mjy tungue shall not he tied ;
I will g> on and let you kuow,
What work poor women h.&'e to do."
" First in the muorning, though we feel
. e:l as drunkapis .wl:cn'thcy real,- -
.Ys reel such pain-s i'n back and beed
As would confine you n a to bed ;
. We ply the Lrush, and wield the broom;
We air the beds, and right the room.
The cows must next be milked!, and then
We get the breakfast fur the ':es;
dare this is o'er, with wiamp'ring cries
And bristly hair, the children rise;
They taust be dressel an't .losed with rue,
and fed, ani all because of you.
We mqust"-here Darby scratched his hea-!,
And feast retreated to his bed :
lut rutnlaled this as on he run,
" Zaunds! woman's elack is never dane!"
At early iawn, are l'hbuu rare,
Old Juan resumed her tale of woes,
When la:arly thus: "I'll end the strife,
JIe you the mean. aid I t!.e wife
Tahe you the eytbe, and mow, while I
V. ill all your boasting cares supply."
"Content," qtuoth Joan, "give me my faint,"
Iis liarly did, and out she went.

This is a very serious burden. His son John J

share of the load. Besides this, some fifteen
years ago a talented and elegant young muer

In addition to these labors, the attention t

The Late Fight at' Secessionville.
About dawn yesterday morning our pickets
n front of Lamar's battery were driven in,
nd alnost simultaneously the enemy's col
mtnti was seen so:ne four hundred yards ofl, _
dvancing with the bayonet, at duublc-quick, j
O the assault. Our troops with the battery
tad been hard at work the evening before,
i throwing up another battery, and were al
[ost worn out with fatigne. The first round
!nt was fired at the Yankees was by Cul. T.
. Lamar, himself. His men hastened with '
acrity to their pieces, and were soon pour
ig grape and canister againat. the rapidly ap
oaching enemy. At each discharge great
aps were vi-ible in the Yankee ranks, but
ill they caime on without firing a single vol
!y. It was afterward ascertained that their
emy's column, reinforced by inafantry and
tilery, re-formed and again caine fo'rward. pr
his time ihey did not disdain the use of car
idges, but poured heavy volleys against our he
