THE POETS' CORNER LADIES' 1VAMES. There is a strange deformity, Combined with coulhtless graces, As often in the ladies' names As in the ladies' faces. Some namesare fit for ev'ry age, Some only fit for youth, Some passing sweet atrd musical, Some horribly uncouth Some fit for dames of loftiest grader, Some only fit for scullery maids. Ann is too plain a04 common. And Nancy sounds but ill, Yet Anna is endueable, A nd tAno L arltt. In Eleanor a state, An elegance in Isabella, A baughtiness in Kate; And Sarah is sedate and neat, Ellen innocent and sweet i*14ilda has a sickly smnd, Fkior a narse's trade. Sophia is effeminate, And Esther sage and staid: 'Elizabe a matchless name. Fit for squeen to wear Eh'eastle, cottage, hut or hall Anname beyond compare; .Jnfl iBess or Bessy follow well, lBditlboty is detestable. Maria is tue 'orwas , And Geirnde-s ioo grufT, 'Yet coupled withIa handsome tace, Is pretty nameenough. Adelaide is fancifl, And Laura toois fine, But Emily is beantiful, And Mary is divine. Maud only snits a high-born dame, And Fanny's but a scold, Eliza is not very ctoice, Jane is too blunt and bold: Martha issomewhbat sorrowful, And Lucy proud and cold ; Amelia is too light and gay, Fit only for a flirt. Caroline is vain and sly, And Flora smart and sleet, Louim is too soft mad shy, But Alice chaste and meek; Now Harriet is confiding, And Clara grave and mild, Whlie Emma is affectionate, And Janetar4c and wild. Pna;ence is expressive, And Grace is old and rare, Catharine warm and dutiful, And Ms'garet frank and fair : Then comes Faith, Hope and Charity, Those heavenly names for sisters three: SELECTED. leisng of a Good Deed. BY. T. S. ARTHUA. "t should like to do that every day, 'aor a year to come," said Mr. William EveretL tubbing his hands together quickly in irrepressible pleasure. Mr. Everett was a stock and money broker, and had just made an " opera tion," by which a clear -ain of $2000 was secured. He was alone in his of fice ;"or, se much alone as not to feel restrained by the presence of ahother. And-yet, apair of dark, sad eyes were fixed intently upon his self-satisfied ..oantenanee, with an expressi .. heobserved it that would, at tlest, have exeited a moment's wonder. The ,owner of tIj ir of eyes was a slen der, rath rly dressed lad. in his thirteeatIy tiar, whom Mr. Everett had epgeged, I short time previously to at tenddin bii office and run upon errands. HO uw j the son of a widowed mother, ,now in greatly reduced circumstances. His father hadbeen an early friend of Mt;.verett. It was this fact which led iethe boy's introduction into the bskerlse edise. -'Two the aad dollars!"

" Yes." At I know two, at least, who are poorer by $2000 by his absence." But Mr. Everett was excited. For half an hour after the individual left **ho had communicated this unpleasant piece of news, the broker walked the floor of his office with compressed lips, a lowering brow, and most unhappy feelings. The $2000 gain in no way balanced in his mind the 8300 lost. The pleasure created by the one had not penetrated deep enough to escape ob literation by the other. Of all this the boy with the dark sad eyes had taken quick cognizance. And he comprehended all. Scarcely a mo ment had his glance been removed from the countenance or form of Mr. Everett, while the latter walked, with uneasy steps, the floor of his office. As the afternoon waned, the broker's mind grew calmer. The first excite ment, produced by the loss, passed away; but it left a sense of depression aad disappointment that completely shadowed his feelings. Intent as had been the lad's observa tion of his employer during all this 'time, it is a little remarkable, that Mr. Everett had not once been conscious of the fact that the boy's eyes were steadi ly upon him. In fact, he had been, as was usually the casp, too much absorb ed in things conceraing himself, to no tice what was peculiar to another, un less the peculiarity were one readily used to his own advantage. " John," said Mr. Everett, turning suddenly to the boy, and enconuntering his large, earnest eye, " lake this note around to Mr. Legrand." John sprang to do his bidding; re ceived the note, and was ofl'fith un ual fleetness. But the door which closed upon his form did not shut out the expression of his sober face and humid glance from the vision of Mr. Everett. In fact, from some cause, tears had spe.cg to the eyes of the I musing boy. at the very moment he was called upon to render a service; and quicker than usual though his mo tions were, he had failed to conceal them. A new train of thought now entered the brokers mind. This child of his old friend h ad been taken into his of fice from a hind of charitable feeling though of very low vitality. He paid him .a couple of dollars a week, and thought little more about him, or his widowed n tother. He had too many important in.terests of his own at stake, to have his mhind turned aside for a tri fling matter like this. But now, as the image of that sad face-for it was un usually sad at the moment when Mr. Everett looked suddenly towards the boy-lingerisd in his mind, growing every mome at more distiudt, and more touchingly beautifui, rxany considera tions of duty and humanity were ex. cited. He itemembered his old friend, and the pleasant hours they had spent together, in years long since passed, ere generous feelings had hardened in to ice, or given place to an all-per vading selfishness. He remembered, too, the beautiful girl his friend had married, and how proudly that friend presented her to their little world as his bride. The ladhad her large, dark, spiritual eyes--oly the light of joy had faded ihaerefsom, giving place to a stranare sadness. All this was now present to the mindl of Mr. Everett, and though he tried, once or twice, daring the boy's absence, to obliterate these recollections, he was unable to do so. - " How is your mother, John ?" kindly asked the broker, when the lad return ed from hir errglad. The ques ion was so unexpected, that it confosed him. " She's well-thank you, sir. No not very well, either-thank you, sir." And the boy's face flushed, and his eyes suffased. "Not very well, you say?" Mr. Everett spoke with kindness, and in a tone of interest. "Not sick, I hope?" "No, sir: notverysick. Bot--" "But what, John," said Mr. Everett, enconragingly, "She's in trouble," half stammered the boy, while the color. deepened on his face. "Ah, indeed? I'm sorry for that. Wbhats the trouble, John Pn The ltbars,. which John had been vainly s itying to repress, now gashed over his face, and with a boyish shame fo;r ae *eakness, he turned away and strtgled for a time with his overmas terin fins. Mr. ret was no little moved by so onexpected an exhibition. He wait ed with i newborn consideration for the boy, not nraimngled with respect, untili measure of calminess was re stored, " ohb; he thea said, " if your moth eor .mit trtble, jt m.. bein my power to v ." 0, sir .ikel 'imd tre lad, eagerly, pomi upp too Mr. ay, and, in the rorgii lss 4f the aomen% layipg his. ar l ipa& ;upon t f his emplioyr, nhrdnd'e~d wouPtn ave been the heart th.t could bare withsiood the ap pealinj eyes litted by John Le Bring to tbiTsP : of Mr.:Lveett .

Mother couldn't help getting behind with the rent, sir, be cause she hadn't the money to pay it with. This morning, the man who owns the house where we live came for some money, and when mother told him that she had none, he got, oh, so angry ! and frightened us all. He said, tf the rent wasn't paid by to-morrow, he'd turn us all into the street. Poor mother! She went to bed sick." "How much does your mother owe the man ?" asked Mr. Everett. " 0, it's a great deal, sir. I'm afraid she'll never be able to pay it; and I don't know what we'll do." ": How much ?" "Fourteen dollars, sir," answered the lad. "Is that all ?" And Mr. Everett thrust his hand into his pocket. " Here are $20. Run home to your mother, and give them to her with my compli ments." The boy grasped the money eagerly, Sand, as he did so, in an irrepressible burst of gratitude, kissed the haid from which he received it. He did not speak, for strong emotion choked all utterance; but Mr. Everett saw his heart in his large, wet eyes ; and it was overflowing with thankfulness. " Stay a moment," said the broker, as John Levering was about passing throuzh the door. ": Perhaps I had bet ter write a note to your mother.:' " I wish you would, sir," answered the boy, as he came slowly back. A brief note was written, in which Mr. Everett not only offered present aid, but promised, for the sake of old recoRle'ions that now were crowding fast upon his mind., to be the widow's future friend. For half an hour after the lad de parted, the broker sat musing, with his eyes upon the floor. His thoughts were clear and his feelings tranquil. lie had made, on that day, the sum of $2000 by a single transaction, but tine thought of this large accession to his worldly goods did not give him a tithe of the pleasure he derived from the be stowal if $20. He thought, too, of the $300 he had lost by a misplaced con fidence; yet, even as the shadow cast from that event began to fall upon his heart, the bright face of John Levering was conjured up by fancy, and all was sunny again. Mr. Everett went home to his family on that evening, a cheerful. minded man. Why? Not because he was richer by nearly $2000. That circum stance would have possessed no power to lift him above the shadowed, fretful state which the loss of $300 had pro duced. Why? He had bestowed of his abundance, and thus made suffering hearts glad; and the consciousness of this pervaded his bosom with warming sense of delight. Thus it is, that true benevolence car ries with it, ever a doable blessing. Thus it is, that in giving, more is often gained than in eager accumulation or selfish withholding. [Pictorial Drawing Room Companion. A Little quakeress in a Hurry to get Mlarried.-An amusing matrimonial story is told of the olden time of New England. It so fell out that two young people became very much smitten with each other, as young people sometimes do. The young woman's father was a wealthy Quaker-the young moan was poor but respectable. The father could stand no such union, and resolutely op posed it, and the daughter dare not dis obey-that is to say, she dare not diso hey openly. She "met him by moon light," while she pretended never to see him-and she pined and wasted in spite of herself. She was really in love, a state of signs and tears which women oftener reach in imagination than in reality. Still the father re mained inexorable. Time passed on, and the rose on Mary's damask cheek passed off. She let no concealment, like a " worm in the bud," prey on that damask cheek, however, but when her father asked her why she pined she al ways told him. The old gentleman was a widower, and loved her dearly. Had it been a widow mother who had Mary in charge, a woman's pride never would have given way before the im portunities of a daughter. Men are not, however, so stubborn in such mat ters, and when the father saw that the daughter's heart was really set upon the match, he surprised her one dlay by breaking out: " Mary. rather than mope to death, thee had better marry as thee chooses, and when thee please." And what did Mary? Wait till the birds of the air had told her swain of the change, or wait till her father had time to-alter his mind again ? Not a bit of it. She clapped her neat, plain bonnet on her head, walked directly into the street, and then as directly to the nouse of her intended as the street would carry her. She walked into the house without knooking-for knocking was not then fashionable-and she found the family just sitting down to dinner. Some little coanmotion was exhibited at so unexpected an apparition as the heiress in the widow's cottage, but she heeded it not. John looked up in quiringly. She walked to him and took his hands in hers: "John," said she, "father sals.1 may have thee." AndJohn got d.ctly up from the din nr table, and. w.at to the parson's. In just tweary.fige arnutes they were man and wife! "-Now, alttAick," said a judge, twhat ave yjon to say to the oharge; are you guilty or not guilty Vn " Jaits! but that's difficlt for yer Oquo!nto tell, let alone umself"' replied the accused. "Wait till I hear the ivi deuce." DRY GOODS, &c.
