rTis
the memory of childhood^-this poem of
mine—
And 'tis done «p In jrreen and gold
With the brightest of picture?! itw paipc* fhifie,
And within them is mirrored forth life's richest
wine
That we drank era the years had grown old
Of the happy by-goaet, when the HVte to
fleet,
This poem of mine ever sings
Of the cottage home, and the m'»i-covcred
seat
By the brook, where the waters made melody
sweet,
IOWA.
And 'he wood where the wild flower springs
Of the old apple tree at the end of tbe lane*
Aad the swing that jaat under it hung
Wbile a part oi the poem reminds me again
Of my c't 'nojttb the roof, where tbe soft falling
ruin
Tbe ftWcctoet of lullabys sung!
[»i
And (he numbers grow tremblingly tender and
low
As they breath of a fond mother's prayer.
By tbe cot, as she knelt In the dim long ago.
And that filled all tbe room with a heavenly
gl'.W,
As it floated away on the air!
There are voices that echo with masio as sweet
A« the songs of tbe angles can be.
And their *i!ver like tones make the rythm com
plete,
When I f«n*y I hear tbe soft falling of feel,
Thai 1
think may be coming to Me!
With fbr twilight's soft hush stealing into my
heart,
And the tar« looking o'er tbe earth,
Then I dream o'er my poem—of life the best
pari—
And I sigh, as I think, while the Mttar tea**
start.
Thy is all that toy living is woiffc.
We may wander far off trom the pure and the
true.
We may sail our barbae over life's sea.
But the purity that in our childhood we knew
Will lie deep in oar hearts all tha later years
through,
Though asleep there it ever •ayba.
And the poem that fills with its rb/me

••Too Much Pjsrk for a shilling.n
Dr. McFarland. of the Illinois Insane Asy
lum, coiuinuiiicaU'ii ll.c following to the Jack
sonville, 111.. Journal:
The death of N. P. Willis, the poet, u'l'owa
the origin of the anci nt laving at the head
of this communication to be explaiBed.
When Willis was a lad of fifteen he was
sent to receive his preparatory collegiate ed
ucation at the hann-s of the fattier of your
curreapoi.dwit, Rev. lr. XI of
X. H-, in whoae family he took up hid resi
dence. and under wljose instruction both hU
moral- and classical attainments were ex
pected tn derive great advantage. He is re
membered by tbe writer as a bi.y particular
ly fn-st," for ti.u.,e priraiiive times, wearing
a roundabout" jacket, and having a round,
joo4-h iiiii ired »ce, handsomely set off by a
profusion of light brown, curly hair, in which
it is well-known lie took great pride, even
into advaneed life. On tiu- -1th of July, IS
•J2. a fi-liitig party was formed to celebrate
tin.- day in a manner peculiar to anglers, on
the banks of the adjacent Merrimac, and
Nathaniel had permission to join the party
—the careful doctor haviug firs' learned that
tha provision chest was only to contain salt
pork, which was to be cooked with the fish.
Hut as is apt to be the ase on such occas
ions, certain cordials, suck as Jam'.*, Nuyau,
and others, now equally O'Jt of dale, found
their way to the stviie of t'.e festivities, in
the pockets of the elder angler* and Na
thaniel, before night, was decidedly the worse
fri'Tn fretjuent libations, on which he had ex
ponded the best part of the pistarecn" giv
en him by the doctor ia the morning. He I
found his way home, and in the twilight
real !od his bedroom undiscovered. But bis
retchings soon brought the hired girl to his
Please, sir,"' gasped the agonized re
pentant. it was the pork I 1 ate, and ate,
till my stomach is just ready to burst. In
deed, ir, I nevvr knew so much pork before
to go for a shilling
The saying soon became current that Nat.
Willis gut too much pork for a shilling.
•fl l)ou't Care."'
Indeed Sir. Upstart, "don't cart." So
says the stMttiug fop, the idler, lounger,
loafer. So says the vain, giddy, fliitiug nov
el reader—the impudent miss to her moth
er, 1 don't care." I'll do as 1 please,
read what I please, dress as 1 please.'' So
savs the nnrulyv disobedient urchiin So
says the iron-hearted rumseller. The cruel
oppressor, let me alone, I'll do as I please,
kill or no kill—" I don't care.'" I don't
care," says the tippler, and smoker. I
don't care," says the profane swearer and
Sabbath breaker. "Who has a beUer
right How does this sound young
friei vis.
Little readers, do you ever say to vour pa
rents, teachers, or any one, "'I don't carc?"
t) shame shame Care yes, you should
always care, care to do good, to do whatjs
right, honest, pure, lovely and of good re
port. Care tw be affable, courteous, indus
trious, neat, obedient—temperate in ail
things.
You shjuld care to keep good company,
read gooiibooks, and shun the evil. You
should care to fear God and keep his com
mandments—to acknowledge him in all
your ways--to do justice, love mercy and
walk humbly, gforiff God iu all things.
These are the things you should care for
daily and hourly.
There is no surer mark of a lazy, trifling,
impudent, insignificant, good for nothing
chap, than this same don'tcare-ism, to hear
hiiu drawl out, when he does something,
wrong, I don't care." Is it not a forerun
ner of every evil? of everything base, mean,
low Hved, corrupt, shamefuH
Whenever we hear a boy cr girl, or any
one, making use of the expression, I don't
care," it forcibly reminds us of the proverb
ot Solomon
A whip for the horse, a bridle for the
ass, and a r«J for the fool's back."
"Dox'r

A JVOBI.K ACT.
A praiae-worthy a tion „f the 'lav previous
camii into our pu.ia's.»ion kt.-rlay morning,
wliith it gives us pluueun to reord.
A mere lad, probably a resident of the vi
cinity, in walking along tbc track of the Illi
nois Central, near Council Hill, oil Friday
moruiiijr, discovered tbi« end of a rail tbrowii
out of the chair" in such a manner as to I[all
conductor, and the train moved on. It was
not until the train had nearly reachcd the
Dunleith station, that ihcir narrow escape
from injuries nd death, arid tbe brave boy's
•ct, was learned by the passeng'-rs. Then
they would have gladly given hiw a memen
to of their gratitude, but the conductor de
clined to disclose bis name, and they were
left to feel the gratitude which they would
have gladly expressed in pecuniary reward.
1 ndoubtelly the conductor's moti\e fr
concuftlment was, that he preferred his com
pany bhoufd reward the nohje lad, than that
those whose lives and limbs he saved should
do it. Tb*t be wi'l be so rewarded, who
can doubt? We shall watch diligently
among our exchanges for his name, if we
should otherwise fail to procure it. Such a
boy's name is deserving of honorable men
tion."'—Du'i. Timet, 'lith.
TOTI Ways Dsia| Thiaf.
In the train from llarrisburg, was a gen
tleman ,'ack lur in a go ashore outfit, jolly,
genteel and happy, with a decidedly pretty
specimen of ls-year old crinoline, to whom
he had been a week spliced, and WAN con
veying her Philadelpliiaward. Opposite
Jack and his wife were a couple that any
one could nee were on a honey-moon cruise,
the bride all blushes, beauty and bashful
ness, and the gallant bridegroom ail devo
tion und endearment. At one of the way
stations the cars stopped, and the careful
bridegroom thus addressed his timid bride:
My love, I am about to step out a few
moments for refreshments, do not be alarm
ed during my absence.''
Gentleman Jack took the cue, and patting
his wife on the shoulder, sung out as if he
was bailing the main-top gallant-yard in a
gale of wiud:
I say, wifey, I'm going ashore to wet my
whistle don't tumble overboard while I'm
gone.''
