Lady Jekyll, -ister o Lord Somers, was
asked by her ladyship why the Creator
made woman out of the rib. After reflect

" Indeed, my lady, I don't know, except it
was because the rib was the crookedest
bone in man's body."
An accepted suitor one day walking with
the object of his affections hanging upon

last roared out, "ay, stranger, if you're a

An extraordinary lastane of the power
of sleep on the animal economy oecarred
the other day. A san who was a great
sleeper, was thought by his family to be
lying too long, and upon their going to his
room they found nothing in the bed but his
night eap. From certain circumstances
connected with physiology, a medical gen
tleman gave it as his opinion that he had
slept himself oat.
Some people have singular ideas of per
fect happianess. An industrious Scotchman
nwhreaided near New York for a quarter
of a~eentry, and who had aooumulated a
very htl~aonme property, recently sent to
tlIeo " auld contrie" for his father, with the
view tlhi he share his prosperity, and slip
away from bis lease of life as smoothly as
possible. One day a friend of the family
paid a visit-to the elegant mansion on the
Iudson, where the old gentleman was liv
ing with his son, and took eccasion to com
plimnent the proprietor of the estate on its
surpassing loveliness and cosy comfort.
The owner full of love for his beautiful
home, saidhe looked upon it and its asnr
roundings as "a perfect heaven on earth."
"Heaven on earth i" growled the venerable
Scot, "heaven on eartb, and no' a thimble

He seemed to have almost attained the
stature and dignity of a man in this moment
of contemplation for he drew himself up
proudly, and walked Into the house, up the
rickety old stair-way, through the long
narrow hall, into the room where his poor
mother lay waiting And listening ibr the
step of her only cdimfort.
"Oh, Willie, darling?- I am so glad you
have come. What sort of a d you
had, dear t It has seemed an age inyo
left me this morning." And the nuffe ng
woman turned away from her boy,
wept bitterly. . o k
"Yes, you dear little mother, I know it!
Rats and mice and a dark garret aren't ex
actly the society for a sick woman ! I have
brought youea an orange and a roll." He
continued forcing a cheerful smile: " But
to tell you the truth, everything has gone
against me to-day.. Everybody was plenti
fully supplied withmnatehesand shoestrings,
and I got a good many more snubs than
coppers. But who cares t Things will fix
themeelves oneo f these days, if I can only"
keep you from starving to death !" And
here tears filled the brave boy's eyes; but
he dashed them quickly one side, and kept
on hopefully.
"But what have you had to eat, Willie t"
inquired the invalid softly, not daring to
trust her voice.
Willie noted the quivering lip and tearful
tones, but this made him braver still ; and
as he smoothed back the beautiful hair from
the invalid's hollow temples, and caressed
the pallid cheek upon which a little spot of
hectic glowed, he replied:
"Never you fear, mamma, dear, for a boy
in New York city. Phil. Pearson gave me
a piece of his Washington pie, and another
boy gave me an apple, .id alw' got
enough. Now please eat the orange and
the"roll, if you can. How l wish Ihad a
bit of butter for yea! Itow, mother, I am
going out a few moefts. 'T> want to make
arrangements, if-po.asble, for a better day
to-morrow; so be a good little mamma
until I return. Perhaps- I shall have some
good news to bring you.--w W .'knows t
Stranger things than that have happened."
Willie's fathehad been dead early two
yeaih, and on account of his maryng
womap .unconnected with the arto tic
set his family intended him to chopse from,
neither father, mother, sister -or brother
hadever visited or taken t beeast notice of
himself or wife. During-fis long and pain
ful illness, not a relative had approached
him. The pine coffin which enclosed the
remains of Stephen Alcott had-not yet
been paid for, and the widow, overcome
with grief and long watching, with the
direst poverty staring her in the face, suc
cumbed mentally and physically; and death
*would have been very welcome, bat for
the unprotected condition of heronly child.
The afectionate boy, with another kism,
and a proimise to return shortly, passed out
from his mother's presence. She could not
trust her voice to ask where he was going;
but she knew he was good and faithful, and
therefore had no fears in regard to bad
company or improper influences. Willie
realized that, try as hard and industriously
as he might, he never could be able to
support his mother comfortably, or keep
her aliveeven ; and he determined to make
a desperate effdt for her relief. The color
forsook his cheek as he ascended the step
of an aristocratic mansion in - street;
for Willie, although a brave boy, was by
no means a bold one; and he shrank from
contact with those who had neglected his
father during his illness and death, and ig
nored the existence of his mother in her
wido ddThistreaL __
"Go down to the basement door," said
the pompousporter as he threw wide the
massive portals. How do you dare, you
little beggar, to ring a gentleman's bell ?"
And Willie, with a quick motion, glided
into the hall just in time to escape having
the door closed in his face.
"Hands off," said Willie, as the lackey
attempted to repnove him. "Show me into
the parlor, and tell Mr. Stephen Alcott
that his grandson, William Alcott, wishes
to see him;" and with the air of a prince
royal the young gentleman with patched
knees and toelems shoes, unclosed the
drawing-room door, sad entered.
"The family are at dinner," said the
servant, closely following. "Perhaps you
had better send your card down."
-"I will go down myself," said Willie,
of pasteboard;" and without another word,
he started in the direction indicated by the
"Mr. Alcott's grandson. Here's a pretty
go-! I'm blessed if it isn't !' muttered the
porter. "I wonder what the Squire willdo
with the ragamuffino. Mr. Alcott's grand
son ! Ha ! ha ! ha! thatis toogood."
Willie did not stop to look back. His old
shoes made no noise on the thick carpet,
and without thinking or caring whether
guests might be present, he opened the door
of the elegantly furnished dining-room,
and advanced to the side of the old gentle
man at the head f the table, with a "Good
evening, grandfather !" which electrified
the whole company. What could ft mean ?
The old lady drew back with an expression
of disgust, and every eye was turned
towards the new-comer, who, cap in hand
his finue face aglow with excitement, i7aited
the effect of his greeting.
"What do you say you young rascql i
IHow do you dare to- And here the old
man's temper became uncontrollable. "Put
this bootblack in the street," he roared ex
citedly to one of the servants.
"Call me whatever you please, sir. That
does not alter the fact of my being your
grandson, the only child of your eldest son,..
Stephen Alcott. My mother is dying for
the want of proper food and care, and I
have come to inform you, sir, that I have
tried in vain to keep her comfortable-have
done all a boy could do, and failed; and

surrounded by every comfort and laxury,
where she rapidly convaleseed. Willie wasr

MILLUIaEXU CouMxGs.--Dr. Cnmmings
is amodest man. He has been lately in
correspondence with the Pope. So he says.
We shoald say it is all on one side like the
tower of Pisa. He has written to the Pope
to tell him that if the Doctor received an
invitation to attend the (Ecumenical Coun
cil he would go. He would do more-he
would go quite fearlessly, and tell the
assembled prelates to their teeth a great
many things they might not like to hear.
He would tell them forinstane, that-unity
was not to be foun in the Roman Catholic
Church. It never was there, is not now,
and will not be to the end of time, which
the Doctor can calculate to an hour.
Where, thena It to be found In the
Anglican and Presbyterian Churches "in,
its iihest anb sapremest appe." Unity,
like truth, is one, and aiftof eno degrees,
but the doctor mast, say ings in an ont
of-the-way manner. o would further tell
the assembled s that if they looked
at the questio w Ich all true Christians
agreed, questions on which they
conscie ously differ, the former were
"lk t dlouds that Bfoat along, slightly
eniag the land as-they pass, while the
tter Weo like stars, shining in their un
dimmed and orighial splendor." We have
no ubjection to the sentiment, but we fear
the Doctor's l wouldmake no impression
on the Council The best thing he oeeuld
do wauia e to mind the Scote' Ciurch, and
wigboh book on Daniel,lf he has not
Ayorbsaethe thabat in the twenty volumes
alt b ViUis ahe As to this intrepidity,
we do t see how it could be tested by a
Journey ito ome. He would be as safe
there as ie his conventicle. We need not
discuss what he would have so iearlessly
said had he received the invitation but we
may observe that his distinction between
"Protestant unity" and "Catholic uni
formity" is about as silly as he ever pro
pounded, and be lies under a heavy weight
of leaden trifles. The doctor hat not a
very discriminating audience in Leeds or
he woald not venture on such a paradox.
But when did he utter sense His
Eiresdce was a poor pilfer from Dr. Posey.
FvMewm's Journal.
Yovun Tnns Now.-Eigbteen years ago the
British Parliamnent, at the instance of the
English Church clergy, passed a bill prohibiting
Roman Catholic prelates from assuming terr
torial titles. The act has never been enforced,
and now it appears that, after the Irish Church
bill has been passed, the Irish Pjotestant
bishops will be exposed to the pains and pen
alties which were enacted at their suggestion
against their Roman Catiolic rivals.
