My home it is a poor one To all who pass it by ; They cannot see its beauty, Aurl neither, faith, can I That is in paiDt and timber, In door-way or in roof But that it has its beauties, I'll quickly give ye proof. Oome hither, yonng one, hither, Your father's steps are near That's Bess with hair so yellow, That's Sue with eyes so clear ; That's Will, with tawny trowsers, Tucked in his stocking lef, And yonder two wee darlings Are bonny Jean and Mfg. A cluster of fair jewels, . Five in the rugged set ; If any man has brighter, I've got to learn it ytt ; And Tom when I am swinging The arms with weary strain, Their blessed faces cheer me, And make me strong again. I sometimes sit and wonder "What will their future be?" If tbey must delve and putter A tread mill round like me ; And scarcely at the year's end Have half a groat to spare And see bad men put over them, 'Twill be too hard to bear. But then I think, as nations Kise in the scale of might, Ood puts the poor man forward, And gives him power snd light ; Aud learning, Tow, will do it And Christian truth will show That Heaven makes no distinction Between the high and low. So, though my home's a poor one, To all who pass it by, And none can see its beauty, Save mother, Ood, and I, The future will be grander, For some great glory won, . Some gem set in the ages, By even a poor man s son. BY MRS. DENNISON. Miscellaneous Selections. WHAT AN ENGINEER TOLD. 1 am an engineer. Ever since the C. road wasrlain, I've traveled over it every day, or nearly every day, ot my mo. For a good while Iv'e had the same en giiie in charge the San Francisco the prettiest engine on the road, and as well managed, if I say it,, as the best 'It was a" Southwestern road, running we will say from A. to A. At A. my good old mother lived; at Z. I had the sweetest little wife under the sun, and a baby; and I alwavs had a dollar or two put by for a rainy day. 1 was an odd kind ot a man, tsei ng suut up wiin tne - engine, watering with all your eyes, and Heart and soul in side and out, don't make a man talkative. . My wifes name- was Josephine, and I called her Jo, Some people called me un. sociable, and couidn 1 understand bow a man could feel friendly without saying ten words an hour, bo, though I had a few old friends dear ones too I did not have so many acquaintances as most people, and did not care to have. The house which held my wife and baby was the dearest place on earth to me, except the old house which held my mother up in A. I never belonged to a club, or mixed my self up with any stranger in any such way, and never should if it had not been for Granby. You see Granby was one of the shareholders, a handsome, showy fello 1 used to talk with him, and we were friends. He often rode from Z. to A., and back again, and once he said-! "1 ou ought to belong to the Scientific Club, Gueldon." "Never heard of it," said I. ' "I am a member," said he. "We meet once a fortnight, and have a jolly good time. We want thinking men like you. We have some among us now. I'll pro pose you, if vou like. I was fond of such things, and I had idea that I fancied might be worth some thing. But then an engineer don't have night and days to himself, and the club would have one evening a fertnight from Jo. I said : "I"ll ask her. If she likes it, yes ?" "Ask whom ?" said he. . ( "Jo.," said I. "If every man had asked his wife, every man's wife would have said, 'can't spare you, my dear,' and we should have had no club at all," said Granby. But I made no answer. At home I told Jo. She said : ' . "I shall miss you, Ned ; but you love such things, and then if Granby belongs to it, they must be superior men." "No doubt," said I. "It isn't everybody who could be made a member, said Jo. "Why of course you roust say yes.'' So I said yes, and Granby proposed me. Thursday fortnight, I went with him to the rooms. There were some men with brains there, and some without The real business of the evening was the sup per, and so it was every evening. I'd always been a temperate man. I ac tually did. not know what effect wine would have upon me; butcoming to drink more of it tban I ever had at the club ta ble, I found it put the steam on. After so many glasses I wanted to talk; after so many more I did. I seemed like somelody else, the words were so ready. My little ideas came out and were listened to, I made sharp hits; I jndulged in repartee; I told stories; I even came to punB. 1 heard somebody say to Granby : "By George, that's a man worth knowing. I thought him dull at first" Yet I knew it was better to be quiet Ned Guelden, with his ten words an hour, than the wine-made witl was. I was sure of it when, three hours after, stumbled up stairs to find Jo. waiting for mc, with her babe on her breast "You've been deceiving me," said Jo, "I susjiected it, but I wasu t sure. A scientific club couldn't smell - like a bar room." . "W inch means 1 do, said 1 waving in the middle of the room like a signal flag at a station, and seeing two Joes. "And look like one,' said Jo. ; and she went and locked herself and the baby up the spare bed-oom. "Ned," said she, "do you think a thing so much like a bottled-up and stamped-down demon as steam is, is lit be put into the hands of a drunken ? And some day, mark my words, time will come when not only Thurs day night,' but all the days of the week will be the same. I've often heard you wonder what the feelings of an engineer who . has about the same as murdered train full of people must le, and you will know if you don't stop where you are. A steady hand and a clear head have been your blessings all these years. Don't throw them away, Ned. If you don't care for my love, don't ruin ypurself." My little Jo. She spoke from her heart, and I bent over and kissed her. One club night, as I was dressed to go, Jo. stood before me. "Ned," said she, "I never had a fault to find with you before. You've been kind, and good, and loving, always; but 1 should be sorry we ever met if you are to go on in this way. Don't ask me what I mean. You know." "Jo.," said I, "It's only one club night" "It will grow," said she. Then she put her arms around my neck. ' "Don't be afraid, child. I'll never pain you again. . And I meant it; but at twelve o'clock that night I felt that I had forgotten my promise and my resolution. I couldn't go home to Jo. I ma"3e up my mind to sleep on the club sofa and leave the place for good next day. Already I felt my brain reel as I never had before. In an hour I was in a land of stupor. It was morning. A waiter stood ready to brush my coat I sam a grin upon his face. My head seemed ready to burst; my hand trembled ; .1 looked at my watch, I saw that I had only just five minutes to reach the depot! Jo's words came to my mind. Was I fit to take charge of an engine f I was not fit to answer. I ought to have asked some sober man. As it was, I only caught up my hat and rushed away. I was just in time. The San Francisco glittered in the morn ing sun. The cars were filling rappidly. From my post I could hear the talking bidding each other good-bye, promising to write and come again. Among them was au old gentleman I know by sight one of the shareholders; he was bidding two timid girls adieu. "Good-bye, Kitty good-bye Lue," I heard him say, "don't be nervous. The San Francisco is the safest engine on the line, and Guelden the most careful engi neer. I wouldn't be afraid to trust every mortal I love in the batch to their keeping. Nothing could happen wrong with the two together." ' I said 'Til get through it some how, and Jo. shall never talk to me again." After all it was easy enough. I reeled as I spoke. I heard the signal. We were off. Five hours from L. to D.: five hours back. On the last I should be mysilf again, I knew, I saw a red flutter, and never guessed what it was until wo were past the down train at a wrong place. Two minutes more aud we should have had a collision. . Somebody told me. I laughed. I beard him say, respectfully. 'Of course, Mr.. Guelden you know what you are about !" . ... . Then I was a lone, and wondering whether I should go slower or faster. I did something, and the cars rushed on at a fearful rate. The same man who had spoken to me before was standing near me. I heard some question. .' , :.-r Mow many miles an hour were we mak ing? I did not know. Rattle, rattle, rattle. " I was trying now to slacken the speed of the San Francisco. I could not remember what I should do. Was it this or that f Faster only faster. was playing with the engine like a child. Suddenly there was a horrible roar a crash; I was flung somewhere. It was into the- water. . Bv a miracle I was only so bered not hurt. 1 1 gained the shore. I stood upon the ground between the track and the river's edge, and there gazed at my own work. , . The engine was in fragments the cars in Bplintere; dead, dying and wounded were strewn around men, women and children, old age and tender youth. There were groans and shrieks of despair, lhe maimed cried out in pain ; the uninjured bewailed their dead ; and a voice, unheard by any other, was in my ear whispnng "Murderer?" The news had gone back to A., and people came thronging down to find their lost ones. Searching for an old man's daughter, I came to a place under the trees, and five bodies were lying there in all their rigid horror an old woman, a young one, a baby and two little children. It was fancy it was pure fancy, born of my anguish they looked like oh ! great Heaven I they were my old mother, my wife, my children! all cold and dead. How did they come on the train ? WThat chance had brought this about I I gazed on the good old face of her who had given me birth, on the lovely features of my wife, on the innocent children. I called them by name; there was no answer. There never could be never would be. And I as I comprehended this, onward up the track thundered another train. It's red eye glared on me ; I flung myself be fore it; I felt it crush me to atoms! "His head is very hot," said somebody. I opened my eyes and saw my wife. "How do you feel!" she said ; "a little better?" I vas rejoiced and so astonished by the sight of her, that I could not speak at first. She repeated the question. "1 must be crushed to pieces, said I, for the train went over me ; "but I feel no pain." . "There he goes about the train again," remarked my wife- "Why, Ned ?" I tried to move there was nothing the matter with me; 1 sat up. I was in my own room opposite me a crib vt which two children were asleep, beside me a tiny bald baby head. My wife and children were safe! Was I delirous, or could it be? "Jo." cried I, "tell me what has hap pened! "It's nine o'clock," sain Jo. "You came home in such a dreadful state from the club that I couldn't wake you. You were not fit to manage steam and risk people's lives. The San Francisco is half way to A., I suppose, and you have been fright ening me to death with your dreadful talk." And Jo. began to cry. It was a dream only an awful dream. But I had lived through it all as though it "Is there a Bible in the house, Jo?" said I. "Are we heathens ?" said Jo. "Give it to me this moment, Jo." She brought it and I put my hand on it and took an oath (too solemn to be re peated here) that what happened never should occur again. It never has And if the San Francisco ever comes to grief, the verdict will not be, as it ought to be so often the engineer was drunk: Rev- Dr. Hallock says the following is the best way to write for a newspaper: "Says the most possible in the least space. Pitch right into your subject, make the title and first sentance so that they must be read; and so of the second, no matter what has preceded or what is, to follow." A Match Game of "Quoits." BY "GRIS." Two young gentleman of this city went out to "pitrh quoits" yesterday afternoon, and we went out to report it We are not a sporting paper except for the fun of the thing; yet we do not intend to allow im portant matches to pass without noticing them. These young men are ambitious to be considered men of muscle. They have practiced lifting a good deal One of them can lift a good sized beef-steak, besides vegetables, with his teeth. He did it the other day at the St Charles. If they had not watched him, he would have lifted their silver spoons too. The other can stand a flour barrel on one end with his friend inside, and, raising the barrel up with one hand, hold it out at arm's length ! The barrel, we may remark incidentally, has no heads in it Having heard that quoit pitching was a capital exercise for the developing of mus cle, they procured some quoits, and seek ing a vacant and retired lot made up a game for a "pus." After a spirited discus sion, in which they both took the same side, they decided on a rolling hub instead of a fixed one, and laying off their coats, the game commenced. Each of them had a small boy to carry the quoits, and there were three referees on the ground. They tossed np for the "first pitch," and one of them got it-he stubbed his toe and pitched on his nose. Referees decided that he had his 'pitch,' and number two took the quate8.' He threw the first quoit over a garden fence, eight yards to the right of the hub, and the second quoit slipping out of his hand flew backward, doubling up one of the referees, whom it struck in the pit of the stomach, tioud cnes from the pit Small boy got over the fence to get the quoit and was arrested by the proprietor for trespass. Boy bailed out with a milk stool, while the man went for an officer. No one pitched his 'frame.' First quoit hit a hen serenely sitting under the fence. Cries of fowlP He took a deliberate aim with the second quoit and lanched it at the hub. 'He's hit the hub" yelled his backeis, exultingly; but an investigation proved that he had hit the hub of a broken dpwn cart wheel by the side of the street, and odds were no longer offered in his favor. The referees got a clothes line to measure the distance from the hub, but they had to splice on a bed-cord and a cistern-pole. They decided that both pitchers were 'dis tanced,' the rules of the game requiring that in order to count, the quoit must be within fifteen rods and a back yard of the hub. The pitchers of quoits were then re freshed with a pitcher of beer. It became No. two's 'shot,' He took the 'light red' quoit in his hand, drew it up to his eye and sighted across it at the 'pale white' hub. He shot and 'pocketed' his iuoit in a newly excavated cellar across the street He landed the other quoit under a bridge.- JNo one objected. lie said he 'barred the bridge." It was iso one s innings. He came up to the scratch a little 'groggy from pitch ing m too raucn peer, wnen he began to take his usual deliberate aim the referees took the precaution to rally on the hub so as to be out of tbe way. A man who was sawing wood about square away, received the quoit on the top of his head, but saw stars. He says quoits don't strike him favorably. Wood sawyer brought in the quoit and laid it on the hub, 'scratching' one. That one was the referee. It now became No. one's 'move,' He threw a 'skewing' quoit 'barking the shins of some boys who had climbed on the fence to be out of the way, and making a 'pursuing caroom on the tees of a gouty old gentleman who was. passing. He tried to throw the other quoit be yond the hub, so as to 'draw back' on it, but there wasn't chalk enough on the 'leather' of hisshoes; his heels flew up and down he same. The referee 'ordered him up,' but he said he would refer to 'pass. At this stage Ao. 2 claimed tne game, because No. I had not won it f A referee who held the 'sponge' swallowed it to pre vent deciding the game, but an emetic was promptly administered to him by the 1ottie holder, which compelled him to throw up the sponge. The victor is to be presented with a pair of gold-headed quoits, inlaid with pearl, and a river mounted 'hub. Josh Billings on Billiards. Everybody seems tew be getting crazy over a new game which has jist bin dis- diskovered, called billyards. . It iz played on the top ov a table which is a little longer than it iz suqare, and the game seems tew konsist in pushing some round red bawls again sum round white bawls, until they drop into little pudding bags which are hung onto the outside ov the table. It takes 2 men to play the game, but or 5 kan look on. They take oph their coats, and stand cluss up tew the table, with a short peace ov a fishing pole in their hands, which haz a cholk mark onto the end of it Then one begins by giving one of the bawls a punoh in the stummuck, which sends it again the next one a stummuck, and so on, till the t'other fellow's turn for punching comes on. But you ought to see the game ; it kant be delineated bi words. One feller generally beats the other fel ler, and then pays the landlord ov the con sarn 25 cents for the pnvilige ov gitting beat, and buys sum gin, with lemonade in it, and all hands drink. Ibisiz billyards. Winter Fashions. The cold, stormy weather, with the near advent of old winter, is bringing out the winter styles. On Saturday the display on the streets as well as in some of the huge plate glass windows along Main street, was very fine. We noticed two or three new styles of cloaks, but the Jerome Park seems to us decidedly the most ap propriate in material as well as in cut It is decidedly pretty and comfortable in its look. There was another style we saw a sack in shape, with points. Ibis style promises to be somewhat fashionable, but we cannot say that we reallv admire it The plain front of the sack looks consid erably better. As to bonnets, we may say we did not see any. The things which are now worn may look pretty, but they are entirely too suggestive of neuralgia and tooth-ache to create very favorable impres sions. We 8upiose, however, when "old winter" has fairly set in, this style will give way to one more suitable to the sea son. We saw one of the short style of dresses on the street. It is very conveni ent, but not as tasty as the long skirts loop ed up. Exchange. A Little Nonsense. ''So far, sogood," as the boy said when he had finished the first pot of his moth er's jam.

The excuses which the keeper made was not admitted. It was supposed that he had Bold the elephant; his wife and fami ly therefore were sold for slaves, and he wrs hjmself condemned io work upon the roads. About twelve years, after this man was ordered into the country to assist in catching wild elephants. The keeper fan cied he saw his long lost elephant in a group that was before them. He was de termined to go up to it; nor could the strongest representations of the danger dissuade him from his urpose.

"Now boys, I'll tell yon how we can have some fun," said Freddie B , to his companions, who had assembled on a beautiful moonlight evening, for sliding, snow balling, and fun generally. "How ?" "Where ?" -What is it I ask ed several eager voices all at once. "I heard widow M tell a man a lit tle whileago," replied Freddie, "that she would go over and sit up with a sick child to night She said she wonld be over about eight o'clock. Now, as soon as she is gone, let's go and make a big snow man on her door step, so that when she returns she can not get into her honse without first knocking him down. "Capital," "first rate," "hoora," shouted some of the boys. "See here," said Charlie N "I'll tell you the best fun." "What is it V again inquired several at once. "Wait a while," said Charlie. "Who's gota wood saw!" "I have;" "so have L," answered three . of the boys. "But what in the world do you want a wood saw for !" "Yon shall see," replied Charlie. "It is almost eight o'clock now, so go and get get each an axe, and I will get a shovel. i,tt us all be back here in fifteen minutes and then I will show you the fun." The boys separated to go on their seve ral errands, each wondering what the fnn could be, and what possible use could be made of wood saws and axes in their play. But Charlie was net only a great favorite with them all, but also an acknowledged leader; and they fully believed in him and his promise. Their curiosity gave elastic ity to their steps, and they were soon as sembled. "Now," said Charlie, "Mrs. M- is gone, for I met her when I waa coming back ; so let's be off at once." " "But what are you going to do V In quired several impatient ones. ' , "You shall see presently," replied the leader, as they approached the humble residence of Mrs. M . ' "Now, boys," said Charlie, "yon see that pile of wood ; a man hauled it here this afternoon, aud I heard Mrs. M tell him that unless she got some one to saw it to-night, she would have hardly any thing to make a fire with in the morning. Now, we can saw and split that pile of wood just about as easy as as we could build a great snow man ; and when Mrs. M comes home from her watching, she will fee as much surprised to find her wood sawed as she would, to find a snow man on her door step, and a great deal more pleasantly surprised, too. What say you ? Will you do it ? One or two of the boys rather demur red at first They didn't like to saw wood, they said. But the majority were in fa vor of Charlie's project; so they finally joined in, and went to work with a will "I'll go around to the back of the shed," said Charlie, "and crawl through the win dow and unfasten the door. Then well take turns in sawing, splitting, and carry, ing in the wood ; and I want to pile it up real nice, and to shovel all the snow away from the door to the. street; wont it be fun, when she corr.es borne and sees.it!" The boys began to appreciate the fun; for they felt that they were doing a good deed, and individually experienced that self-satisfaction and joy which always re- anlt frnm wftll-rlnino. P, It was not a long, wearisome job for seven robust and healthy beys, to saw, split and pile np the widow's half cord of wood, and to shovel a good path. ' And when it was done, so great was their pleas ure and satisfaction that one of the boys who objected to the work at first, propos- . ed that they should go to a neighborintr carpenter shop (where plenty of shavings could be had for the carrying away) and each bring an armful of kindling wood. The proposition was Veadily acceded to; ' and, this done, tbey repaired to their homes ail of them more than satisfied with the "fun" of the evening, r And next morn inc. when the wearv widow rptiirnnd from watching by the sick-bed, and , saw what was done, she was pleasantly1 surprised ; and afterwards when a neighbor (who had, unobserved, witnessed the labors of the boys,) told how it was done, her. fervent "God bless the b oys," was, of itself, if they could have heard it, an abundant re ward for their labors. Capital Fun. Sunday Readings. A Beautiful Prayer. At an Israelite Sunday School festival in Cincinnati, on. Thursday of last week, the occasion being a celebration of the return of the Jews and restoration of their worship under Judas Maccabeus, the fol lowing prayer was made by Rev. Dr. Lil- ' lienthal, a Jewish Rabbi : Father in heaven ! We, the parents of these children, are leading them before the throne of thy eternal grace and mer cy, to intrust them to thy paternal cars and love. As thou hast been with us, so be thou with them, and accept the prayers ' of their innocent hearts! As thon hast permitted ns to understand and compre hend tbe principles of truth, justice, lib erty and universal charity, so grant them thy spirit, that they may learn to appre ciate their value !As thou hast guarded us like a true and faithful shepherd, so lead them on the path of duty and virtue that they may find favor in thy eyes, and be an honor to us, to society and to ourcoun-. try. Teach them to shun error, to abhor vice, and to live a life that promises a rich harvest of joy and blessing. Give them the spirit of the Maccabees, that they may set principles over frail and momentary advantages, and the glorious time we are celebrating to-day may be renewed by them and with them. They love thee, 0 God, these children; they love thee and wish to obey thy word and thy command ; grant them, therefore, their supplication; grant the prayer which the father and mo thers, tor the joyful future of their child ren, are sending up to thee ; for in thee we put our trust, we and our children, for ever and ever. Amen. A Fablk. A young man once picked up a sovereign lying in the road.
