Tba Workingman's Dinner.
"I have brought your dinner, fathor,"
The blacksmith's daughter said,
As she took from her arm tho kottlo
And lifted its shining lid.
"Tboro is not any pie or pudding,
So I will givo you this.
And upon his toil-worn forehead
She left tho childish kias.
The blacksmith took off his apron
And diued in happy mood,
Wondoriug much at tho savor
Hid in his bumble food:
While all about him were visions
Full of prophetic bliss;
But ho novor thought of magic
In his little daughter's kiBs.
While she, with her kottlo swinging.
Merrily trudged away.
Stopping at eight of a squirrel
Catching somo wild bird's lay.
And J thought how many a shadow
Of life and fate we would miss,
If always our frugal dinners
Wore seasoned with a kies.
TIIK DRUNKARD'S DEATH.
DY CHAULES DICKENS.
We will be bold to say that there is
soarcely a mnn in the constant habit ot
walking, day after day, through any of the
crowded thoroughfares of London, who
cannot recollect among tho people whom
bo "knows by sight," to uso a familiar
phrase, some being of abject and
wretched appearance, whom ho remem?
bers to have seen in a very different con?
dition, whom ho has observed sinking
lower and lower, by almost impercepti?
ble degrees, and tho shabbiness and
utter destitution of whose appearanco,
at last, strikes forcibly and painfully
upon bim os he passes by. Is there any
man who bas mixed much with society,
or whoso avocations have caused him to
mingle, nt one time or other, with a
great number of people, who cannot
call to mind tho time when some shabby,
miserable wretch, in rags and filth, who
shuffles past him now in all the squalor
of disease and poverty, was a respecta?
ble tradesman, or a clerk, or a man
following some thriving pursuit, with
good prospects and decent means? or
canuot any ol oar readers call to mind,
from among the list of their quondam
acquaintances, some fallen and degraded
man, who lingers abont the pavement in
hungry misery-from whom every one
turns coldly away, and who preserves
himself from sheer starvation nobody
knows how? Alas! such cases are of
too frequent occurrence to bo rare items
in any man's experience; and but too
often arise from one cause-drunkenness
-that fierce rage for the slow, sure
poison that over-steps every other con?
sideration; that oasts aside wife, chil?
dren, friends, happiness and station, and
hurries its victims madly on to degrada?
tion and death.
Some of these men have been im?
pelled, by misfortune and misery, to the
vice that has degraded them. Tho ruin j
of worldly expectations, tho death of
those they loved, the sorrow that slowly
consumes, but will not break the heart,
has driven them wild; and they present
the hideous spectacle of madmen, slowly
dying by their own bauds. But by far
the greater part have wilfully, and with
open oyes, plunged into tho gulf from
which the man who once enters it never
rises more, but into which ho sinks
deeper and deeper down until recovery
Such a man as this once stood by the
bed-side of his dying wife, while his
children knelt around and mingled low
bursts of grief with their innocent
prayers. The room was scantily and
meanly furnished, and it needed but a
glance at tho palo form from which the
light of lifo was fast passing away, to
know that grief, and want, and anxious
care had been busy at tho heart for
many a weary year. An elderly female,
with her face bathed ia tears, wns sup?
porting the head of the dying woman
her daughter-on her arm. But it was
not toward her that tho wan face turned;
it wns not her hand that the cold and
trembling fingers clasped; they pressed
the husbaud's arm; the eyes so soou to
bo closed in deuth, rested on his face,
and the man shook beneath their gaze.
His dress was slovenly and disordered,
his face inflamed, his eyes blood-shot
and heavy. Ho had boen summoned
from some wild debauch to the bed of
sorrow and death.
A shaded lamp by the bed-side cast a
dim light on the figures around, and left
tho remainder of tho room iu thick,
deep shadow. The silence of night pre?
vailed without tho house, and tho still?
ness of death was in tho ohnmber. A
watch hung over tho mantel-shplf; its
low ticking was tho only sound that
broko tho profound quiet, but it was a
solemn one, for well they know who
heard it, that before it lind recorded the
passing of another hour, it would beat
tho kuell of a departed spirit.
It is a dreadful thing to wait and
watch for tho approach of death; to kuow
that hopo is gone, and recovery imposs:
ble; and to sit aud count tho dreary
hours through long, long nights-such
nights as only watchers by tho bed of
sickness know. It chills the blood to
hear tho dearest secrets of tho heart-the
pent-up, hidden secrots of many years
pourod forth by tho unconscious help?
less hoing boforo you; and to think how
little tho reserve and cunning of a whole
lifo will avail, when fovor aud delirium
toar oil" tho mask ut last. Straugo tales
havo been told iu tho wanderings of
dying mehr tales mp f?ll ol guilt and
crime, tliat those who stood by tho sick
person's couch have fled in horror and
affright, loas they should bo scared to
madness by what'they heard and saw;
and inanyvn ^wretch* has died alone, rav?
ing of deeds the very name of which has
driven the boldest mun away.
But no Buoh ravings were to bo heard
at the bed-side by which tho children
knelt. Their half-stifled sobs and mean?
ings alone broke the silence of tho lonely
chamber. And when at last tho mother's
grasp relaxed, and, turning ono look
from tho children to their father, she
vainly s?rovo to speak, and fell baokwurd
on tho pillow, all was so calm and tran?
quil, that she seemed to sink to sleep.
They leaned over her; they called upon
her name, softly at first, aud then iu thu
loud and piercing tones of desperation.
But there was no reply. They listened
for her breath, but no sound came.
They felt for tho palpitation of tho heart,
bnt no faint throb responded to tho
touch. That heart was broken, and she
Tho husband sunk iuto a chair by the
bed-side, and clasped his hands upon his
burning forehead. He gazed from child
to child, but when a weeping eye met
his, ho quailed boneath its look. No
word of comfort was whisporcd in his
ear, no look of kindness lighted on his
faco. All shrunk from and avoided him;
and when at last he staggered from tho
room, no one sought to follow or console
Tho time had been whon many a friend
would havo crowded round him in his
affliction, and many a heart-felt condo?
lence would have met him in his grief.
Where were they now? One by one,
friends, relations, the commonest ac?
quaintance even, had fallen off and de?
serted tho drunkard. His wife alone
bad cluug to him in good and evil, in
sickness and poverty, and how had he
rewarded her? Ho had reeled from tho
tavern to her bed-side, in timo to see her
Ho rushed from tho house, aud walked
swiftly through the streets. Remorse,
fear, shame, nil crowded on his mind.
Stupefied with drink, and bewildered
with tho scene he had just witnessed, he
re-entered the tavern ho had quitted
shortly before. Glass succeeded glass.
His blood mounted, and his brniu
whirled round. Death 1 Every oue
must die, and why not she? Sho waa
too good him; her relations had often
told him so. Curses on them! Had
they not deserted her, and left her to
whine away the timo at home? Well
she was dead, and happy perhaps. It
was better as it was. Another glass
one moro! Hurrah ! It was a merry life
while it lasted; and ho would make thc
most of it.
Time went on; tho three little chil?
dren who were left to him grew up, and
were children no longer. ' The father re?
mained tho same-poorer, shabbier ami
more dissolute-looking, but the same con?
firmed and irreclaimable drunkard. Thc
boys had, long ago, run wild in thc
streets, and left him; tho girl alone re?
mained, but she worked hard, and worth
or blows could always procure him some
thing for tho tavern. So he went on in
the old coarse, and a merry life he led.
One night, as early as ten o'clock-foi
the girl had been sick for many days
and there was, consequently, little tc
spend at tho public-house-he bent hit
steps homeward, bethinking himself thal
if he would not have ber able to earn mo
ney, it would bo as well to apply to tho pa
rish surgeon, or, at all events, to take th?
trouble of inquiring what ailed her,
which he had not yet thought it wort!
while to do. It was a wet Dccembe:
night; tho wiud blew piercing cold, nnc
tho rain poured heavily down. H<
begged a half-pence from a passer-by
and having bought a small loaf, (for i
was his iutorest to keep tho girl alive i
he could,) ho shu flied onward as fusta
the wind and ruin would let him.
At tho back of Fleet street, and lyiuj
between it and the water-Bide, are sovo
ral mean and narrow courts, which forn
a portion of Whitefriars; it was to on
of those that he directed his steps.
Tho alley into which ho turned migh
for filth and misery have competed will
tho durkest coruer of this ancient sanctti
ary in its dirtiest and most lawless time
The houses, varying from two stories ii
height to four, were staiued with over;
indescribable hue that long exposure ti
tho weather, damp, and rottenness ctn
impart to tenement;: composed original
ly of tho roughest and coarsest materials
The windows were patched with paper
aud stuffed with tho foulest rags; th
doors wero falling from their hinges
polos, with lines ou which to dry clothe*
projected from every casement, nm
.sounds of quarreling or drunkenness h
sued from every room.
The solitary oil lamp in tho contre ri
tho court bael been blown out, either b
violence of tho wiud or tho act of som
inhabitant who had excellent reasons fu
objecting to his residence being rendel
ed too conspicuous; and tho only Ugh
which foll upon tho broken and uneve
pavement was derived from candles tho
here anti there twinkled in tho rooms c
such of tho more fortunato residents 11
could uflbrd to indulge in so expensive
luxury. A gutter rau down the ceulr
of the alley-ull tho sluggish odors o
which had been called forth by the rail
and as the wiud whistled through tho ol
houses, tho doors and shutters creake
upou their hinges, and tho window
shook in their frames, with a violonc
which every moment seemed to thronte
tho tlestructiou of tho whole place.
Tho man whom wo havo followed int
this deu walked on in the darkness, some
times stumbling into tho gutter, and 1
others into some branch repositories t
tho garbage which had been formed b
tho ruin, until ho roached tho last hoi?
iu tho court. The door, or rnthcr win
wus left of it, stood ajar, for tho couvt
uienco of tho mimerons lodgers; and li
proceeded to grope his way np the ol
and broken stair, to the attic story.
Ho was within iv step or two of hi
room door, wheu it opened, and a gir
whose uai?crublu aud emaciated appear?
ance was only to be equaled by that of
the candle which she shaded with her
hand, peeped- anxiously ont.
"Ia that yon, father?" asked the girl.
"Who else should it bo?" replied the
man grnflly. "What are 'you trembling
at? It's little enough thut I've had to
drink to-day, for there's no drink with?
out money, and no money without work.
What the devil's the mattor with the
"lam uot well, fathor-Dot at all well,"
said the girl, busting into tears.
"Ah!" replied tho man, in a tone of a
person who is compelled to admit n very
unpleasant faot, to which he would rath?
er remain blind, if he could. "1'ou
must get better somehow, for wo must
have money. You must go to tho parish
doctor and make him give you some me?
dicine. They're paid for it, damn 'em.
What aro you standing bofore tho door
for? Let mo como in, cuu't you?"
"Father," whispered tho girl, shut?
ting the door behind her, and placing
herself against it, "William has come
"Who?" said the man, with a start.
"Hush," replied tho girl, "William;
"And what does ho want?" said tho
man, with an effort at composure-"mo?
ney? meat? drink? Ho's come to tho
wrong shop for that, if bo dees. Give
mo the candle-give me tho cnndlo, fool
-I ain't going to hurt him. " He snatched
tho candle from her hand, and walked
iuto the room.
Sitting on an old box, with his hoad
resting on his hand, and his eyes fixed
on a wretched cinder fire that was
smouldering on tho hearth, was a young
mau of about two-and-twenty, misera?
bly clad in au old coarse jacket and
trowsers. He started up when his father
"Fasteu tho door, Mary," said tho
young mau hastily-"fasten the door.
You look as if you didn't know me,
father. It's long enough since you
drovo me from home; you may well for?
"And what do you want here, now?"
said the father, scating himself on a
stool on tho other side of tho firo-plaeo.
"What do you want here, now?"
"Shelter," replied tho son. "I'm
iu trouble; that's enough. If I'm
caught I shall swing; that's certain.
Caught I shall be, unless I stop here;
that's as certain. Aud there's au end
"You mean to say you've been robbing
or murdering, then?" said the father.
"Yes, I do," replied the sou. "DOCF
it surprise you, father?" Ho looker!
steadily in tho mnn's face, but ho with?
drew his eyes, and bout them on the
"Where's your brothers?" ho said,
after a long pause.
"Where they'll never trouble you," re
plied his sou; "John's gone to America,
aud Henry's dead."
"Dead !" said the father, with a Bbud
dor, which even he could not suppress,
"Dead!" replied the young man. "H<
died in my arms-shot like a dog, by t
game-keeper. Ho staggered back, ]
caught him, and his blood trickled dowr
my hands. It poured out from his sidi
like water. He was weak and it blind?e
him, but he threw himself down on hil
knees, on the grass, and prayed to God
that if his mother was in heaven, Hi
would hear her prayers for pardon fo:
her youngest son. 'I was her favorih
boy, Will,' he said, 'and I am glad t<
think, now, that when she was dying
though I was a very young child then
and my little heart was almost bursting
I knelt down ut tho foot of tho bed, ant
thanked God for having made mo si
fond of her as to have never once dom
anything to bring the tears iuto he
eyes. O, Will, why was sho taken away
aud father left!' There's his dyini
words, fathor," said the young man
"make tho best you eau of 'om. Yoi
struck him across tho face, iu a drunkei
tit, the morning he ran away; and here'
the end of il!"
Tho girl wept aloud; aud tho father
sinking his head upon his kuees, rocke
himself to and fro.
"If I am taken," 6aid tho young mau
"I shall bo carried buck into the countr
and hung for that mutt's murder. The
cannot trace me here, without your a.1
sistance, father. For aught I know, yo
may give mo np to justice; but unies
you do, here I stop, until I eau vontur
to escape ubroad."
For two whole days, all three romaine
iu tho wretched room without stirrin
out. On tim third evening, howevei
the girl was worse than she had been ye
and tho few scraps of food they hu
wore gone. It was indispensably nccei
sary that somebody should go out; au
as tho girl was too weak and ill, tho ft
thor went, just at night fall.
He got some medicine for tho gir
and a trifle in the way of pecuniary u;
sislaiice. On his way back, ho earne
sixpence by holding a horse; and li
turned homeward with enough mono
to supply their most pressing wants ft
two or three days to come. Ho hud t
puss the public-house. He lingered ft
an instant, walked past it, turned bac
again, lingered once more, and iinall
slunk in. Two men whom he had ut
observed were on tho watch. Tho
wero on tho point of giving up thai
search in despair, when his loitering a
traeted their atteution; and when ho ci
tcred tho public-house, they followc
"You'll drink with mo, master," sui
one of them, proffering bim a glass t
"And mo, too,'' said tho other, r<
plenishing the glass as soon as it wi
drained of its contents.
The mau thought of his hungry chi
uren, and his son's danger. But the
wero nothing to tho drunkard. He di
drink; and his reason left him.
"A wet night, Warden," whisperc
ono of the men in his ear, us ho at. lengt
turned to go away, aft'or spending i
liquor one-half of tho money on whiel
perhaps, his daughter's life depended.
'The right sort of night for oar friends
ia hiding, Master Warden," whispered
the other. % \
"Sit down here," eaid tho one who
had spoken first, drawing him into a cor?
ner. "Wo have been looking arter the
yonng un. We came to tell him its all
right now, bat wo couldn't find him,
'cause wo hadn't got tho precise direc?
tion. But that niu't strange; for I don't
think ho know'd it himself when lie come
to LondoD, did he?"
"No, he didn't," replied tho father.
Tho two mon exchanged glances.
"There's a vessel down at tho docks,
to sail at mid-night, when it's high-wa?
ter," resumed the first speaker, "and
wo'll put him on board. Iiis passage is
taken in auothor name, and what's bet?
ter than that, it's paid for. It's lucky
wo met you."
"Very," Baid thc second.
"Capital luck," said tho first, with a
wink to his companion.
"Great," replied thc second, with n
slight nod of intelligence.
.Another glass here; quick"-said
tho first speaker. Aud iu five minutes
moro tho father hud unconsciously yield?
ed up his own son into tho hangman's
Slowly and heavily tho timo dragged
along, as tho brother aud sister, in their
miserable hiding-place, listened in anx?
ious suspenso to the slightest sound. At
length a heavy footstep was heard upon
the stair; it approached nearer ; it reached
tho lauding-and the father staggered
into tho room.
The girl saw that ho was intoxicated,
and advanced with thc candle in her hand
to meet him ; she st o pp ed short, gave a
loud scream, and fell senseless ou the
ground. She had caught sight of tho
shadow of a mon reflected on the floor.
They both rushed in, and in another in?
stant the young man was a prisoner, and
'Very quietly done," said ono of the
men to his companion, "thanks to the
old man. Lift np the girl, Tom-come,
come, it's no uso crying, young wo
mnu. It's all over now, aud cau't be
Tho young mau stooped for au instant
over tho girl, and thou turned fiercely
round upon his father, who had reeled
ugainst tho wall, and was gazing on tho
group with drunken stupidity.
"Listen to me, father," ho said, in a
tone that made tho drunkard's flesh
creep. "My brother's blood, and mine,
ou your head; I never had a kind
look, or word, or care, from you, and,
alive or dead, 1 never will forgive you.
Die wheu you will, or how, ? will bo
with you. I speak as a dead mau now,
and I warn you, fathor, that as surely as
you must ono day stand before your
Maker, so surely shall your children be
there, baud iu baud, to cry for judg?
ment against you." He raised his
manacled hands in a threatening atti?
tude, fixed his eyes on his shrinking
parent, and slowly left tho room; and
neither father nor sister ever beheld
him more on this side of the grave.
