I know that toon this head will rest Beneath the damp cold sod, I know this heart soon, soon will cease Each anxious wild life-throb; I feel that death has truly marked Me for his victim now, ifiis chilly hand is on my frame And 1 must meekly bow. Bat I do not grieve oh! no, I've wished Thus early to depart ; I've lived quite long enough to know Deep, deep bitterness of heart ; I've found that life is not all fair A cloudless suiidv day, Though young I'vo felt the tempest's breath Across my weary way, Jly anguished spirit oft has sought Some refuge from life's troubled wnvo, Ant where, oh! where, can this be found Sire, in the silent grave ! 'Then ask me not why I should smile And calmly wait life'. close, Why death hath all its terror lost And I seek its deep repoe 1 for why should one still wish to livo When all that made life dear Hath fled) leaving the saddened heart All desolate and drear ; "Then welcome death farewoll vain earth, To others thou all bright may.it be To others still unfold thy joys Hut thou, alas, bast none for me, MISCELLANEOUS From Peterson's THE CALICO BALL. DRESS. BY A. L. OTIS. Our hero, Mr. Hampton, who was largely engaged in the manufacture of iron, was last winter obliged to discharge many of his hinds, and for a time to stop work altogether ns wilh the slack demand for the snide he manufac tured, he could not meet his expenses. The despairing entreaty of some of his best workmen, who had been wiib him for years, Sot any kind of employment, led Mr. Hamp ton to think deeply, and use every exertion to relieve in part the misery he had been com pelled by necessity to inflict. Among those whose welfare he made espe cially his care, was the family of his foreman which consisted of a-ife and nine children, the eldest of whom a till and fine looking gitl of sateen years, was a seamstress, and thankful for work at the usual low rates. Hut he had not only charged himse f wilh the -care of this family, there were al least twenty others belonging to his workman who looked to him for assistance. 1'. may well be imag .hed that with so many depeudonts he was often at a loss.even with the aid of soup soci eties and church charities, to find wherewith al to feed them, warm them, house them, and keep them clothed. Among hia friends waa Mrs. E-'llington, the enviable mother of six young daughters ; the eldest, Emily, being only seventeen years of -age. Emily was very beautiful so far as ex ternal beauty goes tall, very fair, with jet black hair, blue eyes, and a proudly, graceful carriage. She was to "come out" this win ter. Filled with one subiect of his thoughts Mr. Hampton, did not fail to moke it a theme of conversation in the motherly presence of .Mrs. Bellington, who always took much in terest in Mr. -Hampton's plans. She made .him her almoner, and it was necessary that :he should discuss his projects at her house. .Emily listened to his tales of poverty with -deep attention, and Mr. Hampton leameiHo -expect the warm glance of sympathy from those blue eyes, which whether from the poor -or not, looked lovely and genuine. Mr. Hampton, one evening, was asked, by Mrs. Bellington, to go to a en ico ball. "Combining duty with pleasure ! benevo lence with self-gratification ! The rich must ihave pleasures, and it is true charity to make ithein thus minister to the wants of the poor." So reasoned Mrs Bellington. The receipts from the sale of the -tickets were to be given to the poor, together with .all the dresses worn by ladies and gentlemen .on that occasion. And then Mr. Hampton, it will be our weel Emily's first ball. How touching to Ijiave her begin in the world, thus sacrificing all the vanities of dress for the sake of the poor." Mr. Hampton was persuaded the plan was good one, and he longed to seem Emily a: her first ball, so he made arrangements to go. His object being much more charitable than self-sacrificing, he purchased lor the occasion a strong, thick suit of clothes, considerably too wide for elegonce, but excellent for work ring in, and looked, wheji dressed, like a hand some, stalwart carpenter or mason. Quite satisfied with himself, he called according to agreement for Mrs. Bellington and Emily. The ladies were dressed and mufiied in opera cloaks, Emily looked out from her white vaiporlike nubie as pretty ns Venus emerging from her sea-fuaui. .Mr. Hampton's one glance was enough to bewilder him, mil jnake him feel as they ode along in the dark an exquisite mysterious sense of the beauty Jiving, breathing so near him. When the ladies rejoined him before enter jng the ball room, Emil-y-thoughshe had lost with her little nubie the little cloud of myste ry which had so enhanced her charms cer tainly looked like a "perfect beauty" in a jiroud and happy mood. Mr. Hampton's eyes rested upon her, taking an admiring note of .each charming particular of her dark curls turned back from her deli cately tinted young neck, and showing 'he bot tom of an ear so white as to look like a pearl in the shadow of her hair. Her blue dress was charming in its simplicity., and Mr. Hampton, forgetting its future destination, did not ol .;rve that though it was of cotton, it was of a texture so fine, and a color so delicate, that it could hardly be called calico. A garland jnade of a raw heath, the tiny white bells of -which hung in such profusion as almost to conceal the fine feathery foliage, shone above 4hose dark curls, and made an airy crown for ,ier graceful head. It seemed the perfection Of a head-dress, and he never thought that at slhia charity ball Enily was to be decorated With flowers almost as precious as gems, and vthich weuld. perish in doing credit to hertaste With a glance that dare not dwell upon the beauty before him, he also perceived the ex quisite form and snowy hue of the neok and rms. In fact, he vas bewitched, and unconscious ly indulged in a long, wrapt gaze, which Em ily's conscious blush and drooped eye-lids " ihowed she felt and understood.

After greeting the hostess, Miss Clare cast a glance around, ami an irresistable smile stole over her face. That smile Mr. Hampton saw and road. A glance at Emily's finery brought the vivid blush of shame to his cheek. Many limes he examined Miss Clare's dress as if to find some incongruity there that would excuse Emily. He could see nothing to cavil nt but the perfection of the fit. "Mo poor work-woman has such a superb form," he thought. Hut Miss Clare was above the middle size, and he could not deny that many a workwoman might wear that dress with comfort.

As for Emily, it cost her but little to give up Mr. Hampton. She snid lo her mother, that from the night she saw him nt the ball in those shocking clothes, she felt there was something ungcntlemanly and coarse about him. Parting interview with Enmet. The evening before hia death, while the workmen were busy with the scaffold, a young lady was ushered into his dungeon. It was the girl whom he so fondly loved, and who had now come to bid him an efcrnul farewell. He was leaning in a melancholy mood against the window frame of lhepri.-on, and the heavy clanking of his irons smote dismally upon her heart. The interview was bitterly affecting, and melted even the callous soul of the jailor. As for Emmet bespoke little ; hulas he press ed his beloved in silence lo his bosom, his countenance betrayed his emotions. In a low voice, half-choked by anguish, he besought her not to fori-et him ; he reminded her of their former happiness, of the long past days of their childhood, and concluded by request ing her to visit the scenes where their infancy was spent, and though the world miuht repeat their names with scorn, lo cling lo his memory with affection. At this very instant, the evening bell pealed from the neighboring church. Emmet started at the sound, and ns he felt that this was the last lime he should ever hear its dismal sound be folded his beloved still closer to his htart and bent over her sink inir form with I, is .,,., streaming with affection. The turnkey enlcr- eu at tins moment ; ashamed of his weokness, he dashed the rising tear from his eye, and a frown again lowered on his countenance. The man, meanwhile, approached to tear the young lady from his embraces. Overpowered by his feelings, he could make no resistance : but as he gloomily released her from his hold, he gave her a little minature of himself, and with a n.nrlini token rif ntt nplimen I 1,u l.v. prime.

Sit Upright. 'Sit upright ! sit upright, my son." said a lady to her son George, who had formed a wretched habit of bending whenever he sal down to road. His mother had told him Miat he could not breathe right unless he sat "up right. But it was no use bend over he would, in spite of all his mother could cay. Sit upright, Master George I' cried his teach er, as George bent over bis copy-book at school. If you don't you will ruin vr health and possibly tlie of consumption.' This started Master George. He did not want todie, and felt alarmed. So after school he sai I to his teacher, 'please sir, explain to me how bending over when I sit can cause me to have the consumption.' That I will George' replied his teacher, with a cordial smile. 'There is an element in the air called oxygen, which is necesary to make your blood circulate, and to htlp it to purify itself by throwing off its carbon, when you stoop you cannot take in a surTicienl quan tity of air to accomplish these purposes ; hence the blood remains bad, and the nir cells in your lUU2S become irritated.

HOME PAPERS. There is one class of men in every commu nity who do not take a home paper, because they get some eastern paper a little cheaper. Such men are always foreign iu their thoiiahts and knowledge. He in fact, in an intellectual poii-tof view does not livo iu the commu nity where his body walks abroad daily, but over the columns of his eastern paper, he lives in the scenes and transactions of the city and State, and is startled once iu a while by an item of news, which h iS n'cin)ilifir!. U'hft tola s home paper, knew two weeks before and he. S3 hi meets them, bor.s them, odeathit what is news to him but old a,M I I neighbors. And vet. nocr ma.,, he i. . ly unconscious that he is a bore, and is l.muh ed at behind his back, for being j(, far behind Ihe intelligence of the times. U'e have been not a little annoyed ourself with som..- of these men who do not take a home paper. Men who feel the greatest interest in the election have come to our office the day after we have published the news, and put us to the trouble of telling it ail over to them, bv woid of moulh. We think if they cannot' afford to take a home paper, theyought to be willing to wait two weeks, until they gt;t it through Ihe eastern papers. II seems lo us if these men who do not take a home paper, were aware that evtrv body who meets ami hears them converse, kn'iws tliein to be at least two weeks behind. Ihe times, and wonder ot the man's ignorance, they would not sleep until they had subscribed for some of their home papers. Such a man is always behind the intelli gence of tho age in every respect. If he is a larmfir, produce toes up and uown before he is aware of it. Hanks fail, he takes the money u-.iuio ue is aware 01 ir. insurance compa nies fail, and his house is uninsured before he is aware ol it ; and perhaps his house during mat time hums down ; and when ho exults that tie is "insured," he is tokl Lv the nmn who does lake a home paper that (he company imieu a ween oeiore. llis wild land is sold for taxes, while he is pouring uv-r the columns of his "cheap" eastern paper ; his cuttle ray, and involve him in a long bill of 'keep ing,' when, had he taken a home papei, he would have seen them advertised us taken up weeks before. He wants to si.-ll a farm, but his neighbor who takes the home papers, seen in advertisement for one, and sells his ot a good price. And these ami a thousand other ways, the man ivho don't take a home paper is "too la e for supper." Had he nut uiuch better subscribe ? I I JTWe remember hearing a good story told some years ago, which we have never seen in print, but it would bear n-petiaun. An Irishman who professed the most explicit faith in the Romish creed, went early one morning to the house of the piiest to confess. He passed into Ihe kitchen to enquire for ihe padre, but perceived that there was no one in the room. There was a fine ham lying on the table, which had just been sent hume from Ihe butaher'N and he lost no time in slipping it undei great cloak, which lie was so forlu nate as lo have on ot the time, ln a moment after ihe servant entered saying that if he wiMieu to coniess, the lather was ready to hear lnm in the next room. "Here, your holiness," said Pat, "here is fine leg of bacon which I stole, and brought it for a present to your riveren:e. Will ye take it ? "Take it V said the confessor, "by no means." Carry it bock Instantly to the man you stole it from. "Faith, an' I did sir; an' he said ha would take it by no means." "Very well, then, Patrick, keep it your self." "An I'll be absolved, your reverence ?" shouted Pat. "Yes ; it's your properly, if the owner won't take," "Good morning lone life to ye," excloiam ed Pat, as he lugged off his booty ;."Gud bless yer riverence !" Ups and Downs. Our world has long been celebrated for its ups and downs and a modern philosopher, who appears to be decidedly "up and down" in liisopinkuis thus speaks ol them: "When it is "all up with a man," he is generally found to be "down in the mouth." When a man is "up iu the world," he ought to come "down handsomely." A thing once found out as "not what it is cracked up to be," will "never go dovn." It is awkward to be "down on the heel,', nnd "up to the ears in debt." It is hard to be "hard up" for money and "run down" by duns. An actor who is "up in his part," stands a good chance of be ing "dow n in the cast." Compositions are usually "set down" on paper, before they are "set up" in type. Ten pins are "set up" to "be knocked down," and so are things at auction. One w ho is "up to many tricks," is very apt to be "set down" for a rogue. Many a man "sets up" fcr a saint, whom the world "sets down as a sinner." It is easier to "kick upa rumpus" than to "put down a riot." The business of life is short, it is merely a series of "ups and downs," ond we may all sing, like boys playing "fee saw : " 'Hero we go, up. up. ep, Ili'l'e we 0, down, down, downy, Xmv we go b.iekwards ami forwards. And here we go, nil arouuy!" The Female Heart. pure and unsullied as a young first love, has become an adage. Aye, pure indeed is it, and unsullied as ihe snow flakes that fall iu the glooming. The most feliclous moment of man's life is when he is blessed with the timid avowal of love from the worshipped idol of his heart. N ilhing is purer than u woman's love nothing so devoted as her afflictions Be ii for a lover, a husband, or child or a parent, it is the same pure flame kindled by the coais from the altar on high. Give her assurance of love in return a token of death less all'eetion, even if it be amid the gloom of poverty or the uaikness of death and the feeling of her heart will gush forth pure as the crystal wavelets that spring from the mountain rock despite I he bonds and mercenary lies of fashion and pride. Her worshipped idol is love, and she makes it the secret Mecca towards which she bends all her energies, foiihf.il pilgrim for life. This principle shape all her actions, and is tiie great incentive of her life a facul ty that absorbs her, being and concentrates her soul. 'Tis belter to o the favorite idol of one unsullied heart, than tosway the iililded sceptre over empiies and kingdoms. Ehe im- passioned devotion of one high-souled and! noble wo'nan is a more peerless cem, than ' the sycophantic fawning of millions.

In a lecture upon the "Irish Emigrant," recently delivered by Robert C. Barry, Esq., before the Irish Social and Benevolent Society we find the following passage. It eonto ins much of sound advice, appropriately and per tinently expressed : "As an American, I welcome to the soil of my country each and every emigrant who brings with him a reputation for honesty in dustry and sobriety, poor though he may he.

If you have mechanical genius, seek without delay employment; if a laborer look nt once for work; you can obtain it if jou try. Whatsoever your calling be not idle ; for it is a truthful apothegm that idleness is the parent of all vice "Trust no future, howe'er pleasant Let the dead I'n? bury iu dead ; Act! act! in the living-Present, Heart within and God o'er head." Be frugal and temperale, with spendthrift hand scatter not to the winds the wages of your daily toils, and thereby become depend entsonthe public charity, educate eilucite liberally your children, for the road of pre ferment in this land is open alike for the lof ty and the lowly ; ever bear in mind that knowledge is far more desirable than wealth; instil not yourseir, nor suffer others to infuse into their youthful minds, the poison of re ligious bigotry.

S.orms had come upon him shadows dragged their burdens 01: liis shoulders, trials and vicissi tudes assailed him; but amid them alt he tutl kept his hope, and now, ere Ihe middle watch waspassed, the angels h?d set their seal upon him, and dropped upon his triumph the gloom was gone forever; and as he stood with his feet secure, the sunshine from the Eden hills" fall around him.a ond fr out in the valley of the future he saw her "fadeless laurel trees,'" within whose shades his even ing damp should ebb away, softly and gently as a dream of heaven. "Hope on hope ever!" this is the true philosphy. If life is chilled by passing woe, or dimmed by care, hope is a song-bird in your heart, breathing hymns coiuinually.
