And I go from hence away. 1 am going, surely going, But my hope in God is strong ; I am willing, brother, knowing That he doeth nothing wrong. Tell my father when you greet him, That In death I prayed for him, Prayed that I might one day meet him In a world that's free from sin: Tell my mother, God assist her, Now that she is growing old, Tell, her child would glad have kissed her, When his lips grew pale and cold. : Listen, brother, catch each whisper, 'Tis my wife I'd speak of now j Tell, 0 tell her how I missed her When the fever burned my brow. Tell her, brother, closely listen, Don't forget a single word That in death my eyes did glisten With the tears her memory siirred.

A NEW WAY TO GET A WIFE " From my lodgings at the Carlton House, New York, I had waudercd, one bright mooalight night, over half the city from Bleecker street to tho Battery, and now stood under a gas light in Broadway, op posite tho Park, watching the passers-by, as they came from the Theatre on the other side, with the advantage, from the brilliant glow of the light, of not being seen myself. . There is something very in teresting in a city by moonlight; this was a gloriously clear and beautiful night, and in tho long deserted and shadowy streets, that so lately teemed with busy beings, now wrapped about by the silent mantle of night, lay a pregnant monde. I had stood for a moment in a contemplative mood, tho thoroughfare was again in all silence, tho crowd had passed hurrying on, warmly dressed in their furs, when a hand was gently laid upon my arm. Turning, I be held a female figure slight in form, and very beautiful, yet palo and emaciated in feature. A hasty word was rising to my lips, as I essayed to repulse the intrusion, thinking the being before me one of those fallen angels who infect every large city. And more particularly this, where may be found as very neighbors, vice and virtue, riches and poverty, misery and happiness. A second glance convinced me of the in justice of my suspicion, as the poor crea- j turo sunk at my feet imploring charity ! I liaising the thinly clad child, for she was but a child in years, from the ground, in a few words, I heard a story of misery, and suffering that opened every channel to my heart. Yet determined to learn its truth, I threw the warm and ample folds of my cloak around her, and supporting her weak and emaciated form, hurried by her direction towards her home. Wo pas sed down Chatham, through dark lanesjand alleys, into the section of the city known ! as tho Five Points, and presently descen ded into a cold, damp cellar, tho ground being scarcely covered by rotten and bro ken boards. In the least exposed corner of this desolate place, was a large box, in which lay a couple of children on straw, scantily covered with old carpets, tho one sleeping innocently, while tho other, half sleepy, and half awake, uttered subdued sobs. My companion, pointing to the children, groaned out the word starving, aud sunk fainting to the floor. Rushing from the apartment, I sought the nearest Restaurant, procured hot wine and water, and iu scarcely less time than it has taken to relate this, I was again in this cellar of want, administering to the immoderate ap petites of the half-starved children. So overcome was my companion by her i feelings and first sufferings, that many minutes elapsed before she could partake ! of anything. At length I prevailed upon her to taste the wine which warmed and invigorated her almost broken constitution, Want ami pOVCrtV. VUTim tllC CHSUing week my time was mainly employed in . ... ... procuring comfortable , lodgings tor the sufferers, and supplying the same with litlle comforts and necessities, 0QC evening about three weeks after tho j apartment in Iloustan bt., at a work table j ncar a cheerful fire sat the being, who so I lately supplicated charity at my feet in thc ! cold streets. A stranger would not have recognized her now. The color was fast returning to her cheeks, her dark and thoughtful e)es sparkled with vivacity, and a sweet smile ornamented her lovely coun tenance. wen iNora, saw i, (ncr name was Nora) 'you seem to have a quiet comforta ble homo now, and your little brothers too, they have improved wonderfully within the last fortnight.' Tears glistened for a moment in her large piercing eyes as they beamed with gratitude on me. 'Indeed, sir, wo are very happy,' said she, 'and owe all, even our lives to you.' 'Not so,' Nora, said I, 'thank Heaven rather than me, for it was an all-ruling providence tbat conducted you to me, and I am only an unworthy agent of that kind Heaven. But my good girl, you have promised to tell me your history, will you do so to-night ? I have only heard suffi cient to know how worthy you are, and that you suffered much.' 'I have tried very hard, Sir, to forget my past history, but I would do any thing in my power to please you, and as it is your wish, I will tell you all of my life, I can remember. I was born in Dublin, in which city my father, Hecter Neill. was a lawyer of emi nencc, but having been induced by an em igrating party , to America, to join them, be arranged his business and with my ' mother and myself, and the twins, then J infants, he came to this country. We ar rived in this city about five . years since'. the very day I was twelve, years old. ; .For more than two years wc lived hap pily and in comfort, when the demon of iutempcrancc seduced my dear father into his embrace, and for many months we were miscrablo indeed. At length my poor father, sickened and died, leaving us but a small sum, with which to procure the necessaries of life. My mother imme diately took the cheapest lodgings she could obtain, proposing to economise in such a manner as to be able to support ourselves, and send the boys to school, but alas, in her endeavors to earn a livelihood, she over-tasked her strength and become sick then followed a time of want and.dcpri vation, I shudder to remember. At last my dear mother died, and was conveyed to the silent grave.' Here Nora paused ; choaking with emo tion, she buried her face, in her hands, and wept. I took the hand of the sobbing girl, and offered her such consolation as my mind aflbrded, and assured her that neither she nor the children should again want a father, or a home. The conclusion of her tale is one of too much wretchedness and suffering to bear writing. She told of her constant yet fruitless endeavors to procure employment; of her removal from one place to another, each one more miserable than tho former ; of her prayers for char ity which wcro answered by tho sensual villain to whom it was mado by the most debasing proposals, which wero indignant ly rejected. 1 leave the reader to realize tho degree of suffering that Nora Neill must have ex perienced up to tho time of her release from tho miserable cellar in the Five Points. Nora was handsome, and Nora was pure too as the driven snow. What an admirable soul that young girl possess ed, to resist all temptation to sin, in the vile connection her poverty drew around her, preferring even starvation to dishonor. 'I had' said she to me, 'the night I met you almost crazed with the cold and hunger that I suffered, determined at last to sub- mit to any degradation to supply thc dear children, once more with food, and then to destroy my life which' was almost insup portable. But said she, looking up into my face, her own radiant with gratitude, 'Heaven sent me to ono of its angels.' I stood abashed before her, knowing my own unworthiness. My greatest pleasure, for months that followed, was to pass my evening with Nora, reading and conversing with her. I was agreeably surprised to find included into her mind, high and correct principles, and also to know that her education was of no mean character. By constant commu nication with her, I found that her mind like her person.as pure and beautiful, and that both had already acquired an un usual degree of perfection, notwithstanding her youth and tho hardships she had been subjected to. I had with their sister's consent, con ducted thc brothers to an academy at no great distance from the city, where Nora and mvself often visited them, well satis- ficd of the motherly care of the matron who had them 'n charge. I bed induced Nora after much persuasion to take lessons in music, but only through thc argument, that by so doing, she would enable herself to become a teacher, and thus acquire a profitable means of support ; for although she was perfectly frank with mc, in rela tion to every matter, yet she feared there was an impropriety in her receiving so much at my hands. Sho soon performed upon the fine instrument that ornamented her room, with exquisite taste. I had not, nor pould I realize or define my connection with this beautiful girl. A few months of thoughtless companionship had so woven our feelings together that I could not love a sister more affectionately. Nora was now quite round and perfect in person, her health was entirely restored, and her checks glowed with exquisite color. I was often surprised at her young beauty, rendered still more beautiful to one who realized her late destitute and forlorn con dition. One evening having as usual entered the house in which I had secured apartments for Nora, I knocked gently at the door but received no answer, and was surprised to find the door locked on the inside. I asked the lady of the house if Miss Meill had gone out. I was answered in a surly manner, that 'Miss Neill, probably knew ncr own business Dest, ana that sno 'was not her keeper.' Startled at this answer, I hurried from the house, understanding the allusion at once. Tho idea had never before entered my head, that my constant attention to the poor and friendless girl, might cause her reputation to suffer. As passed out of tho door of tho , house, I was followed by the little house boy, who belonged in the family, and who had often received my gifts of small change with gratitude. 'Sir, sir,' said ho in a half whisper 'I wants to say something to you.' I ask.'l him kindly if he wanted money. 'No, no said he, 'Tom's no fool, Tom loves you and Miss Nora, Tom wants to make you happy.' Surprised at the boys words, I stopped and asked him what ho wanted to say. 'Mistress isn't kind to Miss Nora, Mis tress talks bad of you to Miss Nora, Miss Nora cries, Miss Nora Bick in bed.' In the words of the half-witted lad, read the cause of the door's being closed and also of a Certain restraint of manner had noticed some days past while in Nora's company. I called the ensuing evening. and knocking as usual, I was admitted. Nora sat at her work table, busty plying her needle, with swollen eyes and pale countenance. I could not hardly believe that a few sleepless nights could have wrought such a change. 'Nora,' said I, holding out my hand, 'I fear that you arc ill.' 'Oh no, Henry. 'I am not sick.' 'But why would you not admit me last night 'I I asked. A blush tinged her pale check, and a tenr trembled in her eye. Tell me Nora, why have you treated mo so coolly of late, would you have any thing you have not yet?' 'Ah no, Henry, you are but far too prod igal to me in every respect. I cannot tell you how uubappy I am. You must take back all this you have given me, I insist upon supporting myself, thanks to your generosity, I can now do so.' You offend mo Nora ! I had never bo fore spoken so harshly to her. She started, withdrew her hand and looked enquiringly in my face, then placinghcr hand in mine, she said, 'You are unkind to speak to mo thus, you know that your visit is imperitive law to me, and that I revere you as a father, for you have indeed been ono to us,' said she, weeping. I could await an explana tion from her lips no longer, but told my suspicions, and soon all was explained. The Mistress of the house had imputed my constant attention to improper motives, had charged mo with evil intent, and warned my victim, as sho termed her, against her fate. These charges were in dignantly refuted. She had never appear ed more lovely to me. Her jet black hair which curled naturally, hung in most envi able beauty about her swan like neck, while her countenance beaming with ani mation, was the picture of loveliness. I drew her gently to my breast and told her not to care for what tho world said, while she had the consciousness of pursuing the path of virtue, that sho must think of me as one who had no desire, separate from her happiness. I found I was in love with poor Nora Neill, and as her head rested upon my shoulder, and my arms around her waist, I told her so ! and when I kis sed her burning forehead and asked her if sho could learn to love mo as a husband, blushing deeply she nestled te my bosom, repeating tbat my desire was law to her, she could learn to do anything for my sake! Gentle reader, Nora Neill is now Mrs. Henry H , her twin brother with their two little nephews, reside together not a thousand miles from Mount Vernon Street, Boston. And I have told you this tale as being a new way to get a wife. B,Thc arrangements of thc material universe, strongly favor thc idea, that man belongs to a fami'y of created intelligences. Let any one gaze upon the magnificence of t; starry night, and this thought is present with hiin. Beautiful are the stars, in their far dwelling place. No curse abides upon them; no discord mars their harmony; no bloom perishes there; no sad memorials of sin darken their surfaces. The iniasro of tho Creator is fresh upon them, and thc song of creation's morning, yet rolls from them to thc throne. They gather over us nightly and charm our thoughts away from earth. Is there nothing signified by all this? Is there nothing meant by their brijrhtcning our firmament and cheering our midnight hours ? We are surely one with them. Revelation confirms thco fun cies. It sanctions all that poetry has dream ed, and establishes the brilliant discoveries of modern astronomy. It tells us that hea ven and earth are tho same family. It tells us that our Mediator is their God; that his glorious throne is the centre of attrac tion to all the intelligence of tho universe that his revelations are tho sources of wisdom and instruction to them and that thc crowns of all ranks and stations are laid nt his feet. "God in Christ," is the God of thc universe. The Precious Pkaul. Religion in a female secures all her interests. It graces ler character, promotes her peace, endears her friendship, secures esteem, and adds a dignity and worth indescribuble to all her deeds.

Then he quits the world calm and happy, supported by the hope he shall meet them all in heaven. J,A New York correspondent, speak ing of the countless poor of that city says: " To try one of them, I asked her a stout girl of twelve, to whom I was con- templating the donation of a copper how long she would work washing my floor and stairs, for a three cent picee, to which she responded with a bnrst of nature : ' all day sir, and all winter at the same price.' " God pity the poor. USTDaniel Webster onco had a difficult causo to plead, and a verdict was rendered against his client.

We always think, in such cases, a young la dy has abundant cause for congratulation, and instead of whining and crying over spilt affection,' let her put on her sunny smiles and endeavor to captivate a more worthy beau. ' You may depend upon it, that a man who has no more stability of mind or honesty of purpose, than to act in this way to a young lady, is not worth a tear of regret ; on the contrary, she should bo especially happy that she has so luckily got rid of a person who throughout life in whatever he undertook, would unquestion ably exhibit that same irresolution of mind. Love is like every thing else; a man who is not to be trusted in that, is very likely to bo unsafe in everything else. Ar. 1' Times. On the Death of a Catholic Priest.
