My business on the jury's done the quibblia' all is through I've watched the lawyers, right and toft, sod give my verdict true ; I stuck so long unto my chair, I thought I should grow in ; And if I do not know myself, they'll get me there sgln. But now the conrt's adjourned for good, and I hare got say pay.; I'm loose at last, and thank the Lord, I'm goin' home to-day. I've somehow felt uneasy, like, since first day I came down ; It is an awkward game to play the gentleman in town ; And this 'ere Sunday suit of mine on Sunday rightly sets, But when I wear the stuff a week, it somehow galls and frets. I'd rather wear my homespun rig of pepper-salt and gray 111 have it on in half a Jiff, when I get home to day. I have no doubt my wife looked out, as well as any one As well as any woman could to see that things was done ; For though Melinda, when I'm there, wont set her foot out doors, She's very careful, tvuen I'm gone, to tend to all the chores ; But nothing prospers half so well, when I go off to stay, And I will put my things in shape, when I get home to-day. The mornin that I come away, we had a little bout, I coolly took my hat and left before the show was out. For what I said was naught whereat she ought to take offence ; And she was always quick with words, and ready to commence. But then, she's first to give up when she has had her say, And she will meet me with a kiss, when I go home to-day. My little boy IU give 'em leave to match him, if they can It's fun to see him strut about, and try to be a man! The gamest, cheeriest little chap, you'd e.'er want to see ! And then they luugh, because I think the child re sembles me, The little rogue ! he goes for me, like robbers for their prey ; Hell turn my pockets inside out, when I get home to-day. My little girl I can't contrive how it should hap pen thus That God could pick that sweet boquet, and fling it down to us! My wife, she says that ban's- .me face will some day make a stir; And then I lat.jli because she thinks the child re sembles her, Shell meet me balf-way down the hill, and kiss me anyway ! And light my heart up with her smiles, when I go home to-day. If there's a heaven upon the earth, a fellow tuows it when He's been away from home a week, and then gets back again, If there's a hea. en above the earth, there often, I'll be bound, Some homesick fellow meets his folks, and hugs them all around, But let my creed be rifefet or wrong, or be it as it may. My heaven is just ahead of me I'm g .tin g home to-day. iscellatteou Gsfaiixixxg- a Wife- "Twenty years ago I may have perfectly certain that the Madeira been in a good practice, or I may ! was to blame ; but the doctor went not.

"I have erone through it all." I we'll suppose the reverse of the pic- ture to be the truth in my case." Thus spoke my highly respected J and respectable friend, Richard Rob- bins, M. D.. a May fair, physician, in very excellent practice, as we sat quietly discussing a glass of old Madeira and a prime Havana iu his study, on a hot July evening. j Mrs. Robbins and her "girls," as she was wont collectively to speak of her daughters, had departed for , the opera, it being the last appear-! ance for the season of the Diva, 1 Patti. But all entreaties had. I shame to say, failed to induce either myself or the "head of the family" to join the party. Utterly wanting in taste, we preferred the dolce far niente of the little study, with its white muslin curtains gently oscilla- j ting in the night breeze, and the balmy scent of the flowers from the park, to the crowded box and stifling ; lobby of the opera house. It is scarcely necessary to remark that we cared not for the abomination of' candles on such an evening; and although it had grown so dark that our faces were scarcely discernable to each other, we were content to sit, ;' t:i. a s ... wve two is.cy ana luxurious sultans, as we were, languidly sipping our ; wine, and puffing forth the pale blue smoke of our "weeds." I was studying for the bar, but it is just possible but mind, 1 do not admit the fact that I might also have had an eye to making myself eligible" in the view of the per et mere Robbins, for the eldest daughter of the house. At any rate. Dr. Rob bins was good enough to allow me to believe that I enjoyed a considerable share of his esteem, and the dispari ty between his fifty years and my twenty-five was no bar to our mutual frendship. I was about to take a holiday of some mfcnths' duration, and the doctor, who was an athletic, vigorous man and a keen sportsman, had just invited me to pass a month bf it with himself and his family in the Highlands, and "take a turn at the grouse." It is so very unusual, now-a-days, to find a fashionable plrys- ician a perfect enthusiast in the pastime of grouse-shooting, salmon fishing and deer-stalking that I did not hesitate to express my surprise at my good friend's sporting tenden cies. Thereat the doctor's face beamed with a knowing sort of a smile, and he nodded sagaciously with an extreme roguish twinkle In his clear, gray eye. "Skitts, my boy," (for that is my not very enphonius name) he at last rejoined, after, delivering himself oracularly of the sentence which heads the chapter, "as for the grouse, I love 'em." "Bless me, sir, that's rather a strong expression, isn't it?" said I rather startled at the emphatic thump on the table with which this declara tion was accompanied. "Not a bit of it, sir, not a bit of it," retorted the doctor. "Mayn't a man love his own wife?" I began to apprehend that the physician had taken a little more of the Madeira than was good for his health. "If it hadn't been for those little brown members of the feathered tribe, sir, (bless 'em again '.) I should never have seen Mrs. Robbins " "You don't say so?" said I, with an air of great interest (and inserted, J or rather curious I felt.) "Never have seen her, and never have married her," continued the doctor. "It follows, of course," I returned, rather pleased at my own sharpness, "that if 3 011 had never seen her, you never could have married her." I could not distinguish Dr. Rob bins' face in the twilight, but his throat emitted such an ominous lit tle dry sound, that I felt sure his features were clouded by a frown ; so I hastened to say, "Pray, Dr. Robbins, do tell me how it occurred?-' "Willingly," said the doctor, in the tone of a man who has a story he is wishing to tell. "Fill your glass nrst. "Skitts," commenced my friend, "do you know what it is to be in bed and conscious that sleep is coming on 3-ou in a delicious' drowsy fash- ion r Certainly," said I, my thoughts again suggesting the potency of the old Madeira. "And too feel not exactly uncon scious, but your thoughts partly on the objects around you, and partly in the land of dreams?" "Of course I do, sir," I replied. "And then suddenly to be tickled on the nose by a loose feather, or a fly dropping from the ceiling?" "Dr. Robbins !" I exclaimed, now said ; "it is highly exasperative; but somehow I manage to get over it." "What do you do?" inquired the doctor. "Do?" I echoed, wondering if the doctor had lost his senses, and what on earth all this tended to. "Do? Why, smash the fly, or displace the feather and go to sleep." "I swore," returned Dr. Robbins with a humorous chuckle, "Swore like a trooper, sir." "But, really," I remonstrated, "what has all this to do with the grouse, or Mrs. Robbins?" "We're coming to it," said he. "Well, the feather led to the grouse, and the grouse Jed to Mrs. Robbins, and Mrs. Robbins" here the doctor nudged me with his elbow, as if the climax was particularly worthy of my notice: "and Mrs. Robbins," he re- peated, "led to Miss Robbins." "Upon my word, doctor," I retort cd, blushing in the dark, "your ! string of sequiters puts me in mind i of "The House that Jack built." ! , Ila. ha.' roared the doctor ; ' 'that's not so bad." But this is how it was Skitts. You see it was in August, about four and-twentv years 1 . - . . .- . . J ago, that J had a fortnight's leave of absence from my duties, and couldn't make up my mind where to go." daughters, sensible and select."

"I made mental calculations, I count ed the roses on the wall, which I could plainly see in the moonlight ; but, as usual, the more I tried to coax Morpheus, the more he wouldn't oome," as Paddy says." "How provoking !" said I. "Well, sir," he continued, "it was getting bread daylight, when at last, tired out, I began to fieel slumber stealing upon me. I had got my head into a cosy hollow of the pil low, and had got my arm in my favorit position beneath my head ; I felt that most soothing of all sen sations to a weary person I was going off." "Glad you succeeded at last," I remarked. "Not a bit of it ugh! When I was on the verge the extreme verge of insensibility, a wretched gnat came buzzing about my face so spite fully, that I jerked my head sudden ly back, and in doing so drew a feather into my mouth." "How exceedingly disagreeable !" I said, laughing. "Disagreeable !" he repeated. "The thing actually stuck iu my throat, sir, and the fit of coughing which it induced so thoroughly awakened me that, what with that and the sunshine pouring into the room, I felt further attempts at sleep to be out of the question." "It was then that you swore, I suppose, doctor?" "Swore?" said he. "It was enough to make a man swear like Dick Hat terick and Captain Culpepper." "Well, well," I interrupted, "what came of it?" "Came of it?" answered the phys ician, heartily responding to ray j laugh. 'Good heavens, what sur things spring from little prising causes ! Why sir, Mrs. Robbins came of it." The idea so tickled us both that we redoubled our merriment. "Yes," continued the "doctor, nat urally I looked at the feather which had caused me this annoj'ance. It was a pretty speckled feather, from some game fowl. Well, the game foul put me in mind of pheasants, and from pheasants I got to par tridges, and from partridges to grouse. And then I remembered that I had a jolly sort of uncle in the Highlands, who had given me a general invitation to his shooting lodge. "Come whenever you can get away from the drugs, laddie," he said to me, "and we'll show vou how to kill a grouse and eat it after wards." "Ob, I see, doctor," I interposed, nodding. "You made up your mind to spend your holiday in Scotland " "You've guessed it," replied Dr. Robbins. "I did so and what's more, I went." "And I trust you enjoyed your vi dt?" I said. "Enjoyed it !" said he : "it was the event of my life sir. There I met but ah," sighed the doctor, med itatively sipping his wiue, "she's no more like she was then than I am like a scuttle of coals.' "Really, doctor." I said in a re monstrative tone, "if, as I presume, you allude to' Mrs. Robbins " But the good man, wrapped in his reflections, went on as if he had not heard me. "She's a fine woman now a dear, good woman too and that's better. But then ah F "However, doctor, you have not satisfied my curiosity," I ventured to remark. "Here's the bottle ; help yourself," he said, starting from his reverie. "Well, as I was saying, I went to Scotland to my uncle's. He was, as I have said, a good sort of a man, I and be had a remarkable pleasant j nartv of friends eathered around I , . him for shooting season Not a large D noisy batch of dogmatic old squires. empty-headed "swells" and flirty girls, but a compact, cozy party of - V .... about a dozen, consisting of three pleasant friends and their wives and Two Dollars a Year. life, nor seen a red deer on his na tive heather ; so my uncle had to initiate me, from the commencement i of my visit, into all the mysteries necessary to be understood by a Highland sportsman. I took to it wonderfully, and soon became ex pert. But I was eager at the sport, and rash, sir rash, as all novices are, and I had te pay the penalty." "I hope it was not a heavy one," I said. "Well, you shall judge," was the reply. "I lost two fingers and gain ed a wife." "Yes," continued the doctor, hold ing up his hand ; "I put an overcharge in ray gun, and what was the conse quence r V hy, it burst, sir, it burst. It blew into ever so many pieces, and two of ray fingers blew into pieces with it." "Ah !" said I. "Such a scene !" said he. "You may suppose I called ut pretty loud. And ladies (thev had met us to take lunch on the hills) fainted to a woman, all but one, sir, and she " "Well, doctor?" "Well," said the doctor, "in her distress she let fall some words which showed nee in which quarter the wind blew, I can tell you." "Oh!" I ejaculated, significantly. "I had rather had a severe illness, sir. There was danger of lockjaw, and I'll leave you to guess who nurs ed me, and all that sort of things." "Oh, yes, doctor," said I, slyly. "I can very well guess all that sort of things, as you call it." Dr. Robbins laughed, and though I couldn't see him, I've no doubt he blushed like a jroung girl. "Next year," he went on, T re peated my visit, and I became so expert with my gun, that I took home plenty of spoil with me, and ahem ! took away something else, also." "And that was?" said I "Mrs. Robbins !" he replied, laugh uig heartily. "Quite a romance, my dear doc tor." "Just so," he answered. "Well, now, ring the bell, Skitts, and we'.ll have a broiled bone and a bit of old Stilton before mamma and the girls come home." 1 Sardine Storj. In one of the cities of New Hamp shire, some years since, a man nam ed II y was elected Maj-or, and very important he thought his posi tion. During his term of office a fire company sent word that they shonld visit his city and remain sev eral days. The Maj-or called a meet- 1 i"g of the City Council to see what should be done towards entertaining the firemen. He wanted to show the hospitality of the city in its most munificent form, and proposed that a collation should be given the strangers. "And what," asked one of the aldermen, "do you propose to put on the table for the collation?" "We'll give them," said His Honor in reply, "hot coffee and sardines." One of the council thought that sardines ai.d coffee were hardly up to the mark for the hungry firemen. "I know better," said the Mayor, in an angry tone. "Sardines are hearty and will be just what the men need." Perhap,s" said an alderman, "his Honor does not know what sardines are." The Mayor sprang to his feet, angry all over. "I know," he shouted, "what sar dines are as well as you do, or any other member of the board. I've eaten enough of them in my life. They are easily prepared. Just take two pieces of bread and put a piece of ham between them and then your sardine is made." His Honor sat down amid a roar of laughter. He'd got things, such as sardines and sandwiches, kinder mixed up in his mind.

The lady was, however, equal to the oc casion, and drawing a revolver from her pocket, pointed it at the man, and threatened to fire if he dared to touch her dog. The conductor drop ped the subject aud retired to the back platform, and the rest of the passengers precipitately left the cat, but the lady with the pistol and the dog remained In quiet possession It is said that the conductor lost his presence of mind so completely that he forgot to ask the lady for her fare. Private letters from Madrid repre sent that Spain is in a very turbulent condition, and the belief prevails, and constantly gains ground, that the army will yet re-establish a monarchy ; but it is doubtful whether Don Carlos or Alfonso will be placed on the tbrone. ormatlon of Inebriates. The question of how to deal with men who have become slaves to , strong drink is one of the ino&t diflb cult of our social problems. To class drunkenness with disease, as some hare done, is to ignore moral responsibility ; i tn lUBflaf that there ace morbid influences at work stronger than the human will, as in the case of typhus or small-pox. Inebriate asylums, based on the assumption that drunkenness is a disease, where patients are to be treated as if in a hospital, may ef fect a temporary good, but they can not do, to any hopeful extent, the work of reformation, They isolate a man for a time, and remove him from contact With allurement ; but when he goes back Into old associa tions and stands again face to face with temptation, be is little stonger, as to moral and spiritual power, than before. The effects of disease, so called, have been overcome by treat ment. He is well again, as a man restored from fever is well. But, when he returns to society, he is like the fever district. He has no immunity from attack. Now, we must have, in the treat ment of drunkenness, something more radical than this. We must go deeper than hoepital and asylum work. This work reaches no farther than the physical and moral nature, and can, therefore, be only tempo rary in its influence, We must awaken the spiritual consciousness, and lead a man, too weak to stand in his own strength, when appetite, held simply in abeyance, springs back upon him again, to trust in God as his only hope, if we would effect a permanent reformation. First, we must help him plvysically. We must take him out of his debase ment, his foulness and discomfort, and surround him with the influences of a home. Must get him clothed and in his right mind, and make him feel once more that he has sympathy is regarded as a man full of the noblest posibilities and so be stim ulated to personal effort. But thin is only preliminary work ; such as any hospital and asylum may do. The real work of salvation goes far beyond this ; it must be wrought in a higher degree of the soul even that which we call spiritual. The man must be taught that only in Heaven-given strength is there any safety. He must go in his weakness and deep sense of degradation to God as the only one who can surely lift him and set his feet in a safe place. Not taught this as from pulpit or platform ; but by earnest, self-denying sympathetic Christian men and women, standing face to face with the poor, repentant brother, and holding him tightly by he hand lest he stumble and fall in his first weak efforts to walk in a better way. And this is just the work that ia now being done in our city (Phila delphia) by the "Franklin Reforms tory Home for Inebriatas," a Heaven-inspired institution, and yet but a year old, but with accomplished re sults that are matters of wonder to all who are familiar with its opera tions.

A New York correspondent writes : I might continue through the most prominent merchants, bankers and business men generally, nearly every one of whom might be shown to have been the architect of bis own fortune Most of them are without any regular education, while it can be demonstra ted that the college-bred men have, as a rule, cither remained poor or have achieved ouly comfortable in dependence. From this, one might deduce that regular and systematic culture is a bar to the acquisition of wealth, and the deduction is, to a certain extent, correct. Education of a" liberal sort insures such needs and tastes as fail of gratification from" mere money making. Moreover, it produces a breadth of feeling and a degree of sensibility that seriously interfere with the constant pursuit of dollars.
