THE YEAR'S TWELVE CHILDREN.
»January, worn and «ray, Like an old pilgrim by the way. Watches the snow, and »Miiering üign», Ah th« wild curlew round him flies; 'Or, huddled underneath a thorn, Situ praying for the moru. February, bluff and bold, O'er farrows striding, »porn# the cold; And with his horse« two abreast, Mak-a the keen plough to his behest. Rough March comes blustering down the road, In hi« wrath-hand the oxen's goad ; Or, with a rough and angry haate, Scatters the Beed o'er the dark waste. April, a child, hall'tears, hrilfsmileB, Trips full of little playful wiles; And, laughing 'neath her rainbow hood, Seek« the wild riolet« In the wood. May, the bright maiden goes, To where the snowy hawthorn Wows, Watching the lambs leap 10 the dell' Wst'nlng the simple village bells. June, with the mower's scarlet face; Moves o'er the clover field Apace, And fast his crescent scythe sweeps on O'er »pots fron where the lark has flown. July—the» farmer, happy fellow, Laughs to see the corn grow yellow ; The heavy grain he tosses up From his right hand as from a cup. August—the reaper cleaves ni» way Through golden wares at break of day; Or in Iiis wagon piled with corn, At rannet, home is proudly borne. September, with his braying hound, Leaps fence and pale at every bound ; And casts into the wind iü »com All cares and dangers from his horn. October joules, a woodman old Fenced with tough leather from the cold ; Hound swings his sturdy axe, and lo! A llr branch fa I s at every blow. November cowers hefor» the flame, H I tared crono, tor get ting h"r own name ! Watches the blue smoke cnrlln" rise, And broods upon old memories. Meoember, fat, and rosy strides, His old heart warm, well clothed his side*, With kindly word for young and old, The cheerier for the bracing cold ; Laughing a welcome, open flings Iii» Doors, and as he does i t, sing». [ Chambers'# Journal. A Bright Day Coming .—"Tongues and Sounds" of the Mobile News holds forth as follow«: "Bricks" commends the same to rniiny of hi* fellow-creatures in this city ( adding, that we may yet enjoy a future brighter by fur, than the happy days buried iu the past, if we be but true to our selves, and not give up to weak repining over that which is gone forever : It is another Sabbath morning, and God's glorious sun shines on rich and poor, 011 high and low, on North and South, alike—there is no malice in J lis ways. A "Tongue"' said the other evening, "I can not feel resigned to my destiny; I have lost my homo, my property, the old asso ciations of my youth are gone, the old ties sundered; all, all swept away by one fell blow; I sometiinos think there is no God!" You do wrong, my friend, to say thus; for do you not know that "every cloud has a silver lining," and "the darkest hour is just before day?" Why, then, forgot and forgive. T. and S., himself, lost his little all, and the thought of it sometimes makes him heart-sick. How he strove to win a name and a recompense; how he tried to do well by himself and still do well by l is follows; how he had "saved something for a rainy day," and woke up to lind himself impoverished, and his little investment in the* "peculiar institution" vanished like dew oefore the morning sun, you will never know more of, kind reader; but there is a bright day lor us and the "Sunny South" yet, we sincerely hope and believe, and the darkness around us has a light that glows behind. Have courage, you who read this, and know, that al though happy old days have gone, and with them the institutions of our dear South, the old plantation scenes of glory, and the city's peaco and pride, still there is a future fraught with prosperity to our land, and peace to our people. Let us improve both to the best of our ability, and try and work out the salvation of our Saxon race; other races arc trying to work out theirs—let them do it. SSÈT"Mr. John l'ouncy, the well-known photographer, of Dorchester, England, re cently gave a series of experiments in his newly patented process of printing photo graphs direct from the negative, in print er's ink, before a solect party of eminent professors, at King's College, London. The whole manipulation of the process was successfully carried outby Mr. l'ouncy, showing the ease with which the pictures produced from the ink could be trans ferred either to paper or any other sub stance. The rationale of the process ap pears to be that the light hardens the ink on the surface of the paper just in propor tion as it passes through the negative, the part not acted oil by the rays remaining soluble, arid being easily removed by washing with turpentine. The company present expressed themselves highly satis fied with trie results, and a vote of thanks was accorded to Mr. l'ouncy. He also exhibited specimens of photography in ceramic colors for transfer to biscuit wares, which were much admired. The fact of Mr. Potincy having been awarded the silver modal and fourhnndrod francs from the Photographic Society of France, and the silver medal of the Photographic So ciety of Scotland, is a sufficient testimony in favor of a process which appears to be one of much value, as advancing the per manency of architectural representation. A Fkmalk Blondjn.—A well formed, voluptuous looking little French Canadian woman, with a handsome face, calling herself M'lle Josephine V autier,is creafing quite a sensation at Elm Park, Stuten Island, by her daring feats, particularly that of ascending into the air a distance of eighty feet, and there performing upon a tight rope. On Saturday afternoon she made her first ascension and performed upon bottles—a pyramid of champaigne bottles having beon formed—which she ascended, and while standing on a single bottle at the top, balanced a number of ro tating plates supported on her hands and chin. Shortly after, she reappeared and as cended a rope stretchod a hundred and fifty feet and abont eighty feet high. While upon the rope M'Ue De Vautier showed herself au expert in the profession. She knelt down, balanced on «ne foot, exten ding herself at fall lenjth,}recovering her upright position with apparent ease. OtiK Mistakes About Each Other.— Not one man in ten thousand sees those with whom he associates as they really are. If the prayer of Burns were granted, and •we could all see ourselves as others see us, our self estimates would in all probability be much more erroneous than they now are. The truth is that we regard each other through a variety of lenses, no one of which is correct. Passion and prejudice, love and hate, benevolence and envy,spec tacles our eyes, and utterly prevents us from observing accurately. Many whom we deem the porcelain of human clay are mere dirt, aud a still greater number of those we put down in our "black books," are no further oil' from heaven, and per chance a litt!« nearer than the cesaors who condemn Ihem.
