The marriage- rite I' over, And though I turned aside To keep the guests from seeinjj The tears I could rot hide, I wreathed my face in smiling, And led my little brother To greet my father' ch-en But 1 could not call her mother. She is a fair young creature, . With a meek and gentle r.ir; With blue eycB o!'t and loving, And silken, sunny hair I know my fcther gives her The love he bore another; But if she were an angel 1 eould not call her mother. To-night I beard her singing A aong I used to lore. When its swecet note were uttered Uy her whojiinps above. It pained my hWt to hear it; And my tears I could not smother For every word was hallowed II; the dear voice of ruy mother. My father, in the sunshine 'Of happy days to come, Mv half forget the shadow That darkened our old home; His heart is no more lonely, But mcand little brothor Must still be orphan children God can give us but one mother. They've borne my mother's picture From its accustomed place, And set beside my father's A younger, fairer face. They've made her dear old chamber The boudoir of another, But I will not forget thee, My own, my angel mother. Miscellaneous FRIENDSHIP. BY COMLY JES OF. Friendship is a stray sunbeam glancing from Paradise through the cold clouds of selfishness that hans like black clouds round tnc tiauito tion of mnn, cheering with his presence the dark corners and gloomy recesses of human nature, and shedding a ray of Heaven around man's mortal heritage, without hicli, earth would be a gloomy prison nouse, ami ine acene of withering care ami unmitigated woe. It is- like the last ravs of the selling snn, which bathes in mellow light the rocky brow of the mountain, softens its rugged outlines. and pouring a floodoT golden g oryoji many ' an object, which, untoucneo ny us naiiuwing influence, would suimoer on in aari.net uii heeded and despised. 1 Like Ihe rosy smile that lingers rounU th1 dying couch, it hovers over depnrtinl joy, nnnni ita henvenlv influence around theuark r- .-' , u..J -J er scenes 01 cartji, ctieers urcopuig tor mn when the stin of life must set in the ocekn eternity, itspentte railionce beams arounl the portals of the dark tomb.

Like the tear drops of night, the dew whi anarkles in the smiles of morning it gives lovely brilliancy to many a sot which wou nlhprwiKe remain cheerless. . Like the calm nnd silent star-light, it illu minates the darker hours of life, when lb sun of hone has irnne down benealli the murks' ocean of unrealized anlicinaliona ; and dark night of despondency .ettiles around weaiy soul. Like the melting tones of music, it wakes echo in the coldest heart, ends the most siub- . torn nature, reclaims theerring wanderer from the pith of crime, and lends a holy charm tirtne'a self. Like Ihe palm trees which rise mid ecorching and sterile deserts of Africa, and the weary traveller to res! beneath their toughs, at the cool spring that bubble up their midst, it brings a ihrill of delight lo care-worn spuit, toiling along the dusty roai' of lifts and scatters fl'iwers in the paih leads down to the silence and solitude of 'l tomb.
