SWEET EIGHTEEN.
By Chat. Swain.
Sweet eighteen! graceful eighteen!
Brine me roses, the birth-day flower.
Bathe them in dews where the fairies have been,
To wreathe a charm for my natal hour:
Time will show me his magic glass,
r uture lite in each varied scene.
Lights and shadows will come and pass
Over the heart when it's turned eighteon!
Mother, oh ! sins me again to rest,
Tender and fond as thy bosom of yore;
Father, 1 kneel, again to be blest
Over my pravers as thou blessed mo before!

Woodbines that twine with their iondest caress,

Thus will I cherish, thus hallow the spot,
Paasinsr the moments vour loves between;
For what are the pleasures my home has not?

Idle Daughters.
It is, says Mrs. Ellis, a most painful spec
tacle in families, where the mother is the
dradge, to see tho daughters elegantly
dressed, reclining at their ease, with their
drawing, their mvsic, their fancy work, or
thoir reading; beguiling themselves of the
lapse of hours, days, alvd weeks, and never
dreaming of their responsibilities, but as a
necessary consequence of suO neglect of
duty, growing weary of their useless lives,
laying hold of every newly invented stfmu
lant to rouse up their drooping energies, and
blaming their fate when they dare not blame
th'ilr God, for Laving placed them where
they are, and made them what they are
