FROM THE GERMAN.
A boy beheld a rosebud pe.r
O'er KUrroundin heather,
'Twas so young, and morning clear,
Qnick h ran to it oer
Stooped and g7d with pleasure.
Rospbnd, rosebnd, rosebud red.
Rosebud it the heather!
Sad the lioy, " t il pluck thee, lap
Rosebud, in the heather."
Said the Rose, " I utina, beware !
Long wilt thoo the memory bear,
Tbon Khalt pluck me never !"
Rosebud, rosebud, rosebud reI,
Rosebud in the beather.
Ah ! the wild boy plucked that young
Rosebud in rbe heather ;
Vain the plaints that sorrow wruns.
Though she stroseled long and strong,
She's despoiled forever !
Rosebud, rosebud, rosebud red,
Rosebud in the beather.
A BOY'S STORY.
" To tell the truth," said John
Haviland, as he threw aside his
evening paper, and faced the little
group in the parlor, " I am fast
growing out of patience with this
text 'a woman at the bottom of it.'
It would be strange in this world
made up, as far as we are aware, of
nothing but the two sexes, if a wo
man would not occasionally be found
at the bottom of anything good ! It
si the injustice of the thing that
makes me angry. Now, there are
hundreds of poor fellows who owe
all we are, all we have, and all we
expect to become, in this world or
the next, to the unselfish love of
The gentleman's face was flushed,
and he spoke very warmly and
feelingly, so much so that his wife,
rocking baby to sleep in the further
corner of the room, inquired :
" But why should you care, John?
It has always been so, and always
will be so. We don't think much
about it now, because we have been
taught to expect it."
" But you should care ! and you
should fight for each other more
than you do. There is one chapter
in my life's history that I have
nlways kept locked in my heart,
but tonight I feel as if it were my
duty to open it for your inspection;
and I do it lor the love of woman
for th? love of the woman who
made me what I am worthy to be,
the husbandof a good woman."
" Trny, .Jonn," earn airs, iiavi-:
land, softly approaching baby
still held tight to her bosom "you
absoluteiy frighten me."
" Let's have the fetory," said the
rest of the group, certain that some
thing good might be anticipated,
and John commenced, at first a
little timid, butgaining in confix
dence as he proceeded.
" When I first came to New York,
at the age of twelve years, to see
my fortune, I can call myself a
precocious chap without danger of
being accused of an unusual degree
of selfappreciation. 1 was quick
to learn everything, the bad as well
as the good. My employer used
profane language, I picked up the
oaths he dropped with a naturalness
that surprised even myself. The
boys in the office all chewed tobacco.
This was a little the hardest iob I
ever attempted, but after two weeks
of nausea and indescrible stomach
wrenchings. I came off victorious,
and could get away with my paper
a day with the best ct em.
" True, eery word of it," con
tinued the speaker.
" One afternoon I was sent with
a note from my employer to a house
in the upper part of the city. I
hadn't anything to read, but I had
plenty of tobacco, and with that I
proposed to entertain myself during
the two or three hours I must spend
in the passage. For some distance
I did not "notice who were beside me,
but by and by a lady said very
softly and pleasantly : 'Would you
please, little boy, be more careful.
I am going to a party this afternoon,
and should hate to have my dress
" I looked into her face. It was
the sweetest face lev er saw. Pale,
earnest, and loving, to my boyish
heart it was the countenance ot an
" v hat m the world did you
say f interrupted Airs. Haviland,
her bright eye filling with tears, as
she saw how his memory of this
beautiful woman had affected her
" Say ! There-was very little
could say. I think all I did for
some time was to look. I managed
to dispose of the tobacco, however,
and wiped carefully, all of which I
felt certain she saw and mentally
" Have you a mother, little
boy ?" she next asked, in the same
44 4 No ma'am," I answered, and I
felt my throat filling, and I knew I
must swallow mighty fust
44 ' You have a father,
suppose?" she kept on.
44 4 No, ma'am, tio father.'
44 4 Brothers and sisters V
44 1 Neither, ma'am.'
44 4 The little boy is all alone
the world ?
; 44 4 AU alone, ma'am.'
"'How long has Lis mother
beeii dead V and the dear woman
looked away from my face, and
waied till I could speak.
4 Two years,' I answered.
'I4 And you loved her V eutne
'Dearly,' was ail i could say.
She was silent for a moment,
and:-then snid so sweetly Oh ! I
shall never forget it
41 i, And what do you think your
dear mother would say to know
that her little boy was guilty of
such a disgusting habit as this V
pointing to my cheek, where the
tell-tail cud had vainly tried to
stand its ground. . :
44 4. I must leave now,' she con
tinued;, but here is my card, .and
ify3U i'Sjirfc f me most any tfTerring,1
I shali oe glad to see you, and
perhaps we can be of service to
44 She gave nie her little gloved
hand, and to my dying day I shall
never forget the sensation of that
moment. I could not bear to part
with her; without her I felt that I
could do nothing ; with her I could
grow to man's estate a inan in the
truest sense of the word. From
that moment tobacco never passed
44 As soon as I could summon
courage I called upon the lady.
Well do I remember how my heart
beat as I waited in the elegant
parlor for her to come down ; and
how awkward I felt as I followed
my guide to her private sitting
room. Here she got at every point
of my life, and before I bade her
good-bye, it was arranged that I
should spend two evenings of each
week at her house and study on
these occasions just what she thought
"No lover ever looked forward
to meetings with the mistress of his
heart any more ardently than I did
to these meetings with my friend.
I grew careful of my personal
appearance careful of my conver
sation; and strove in every way to
be worthy of her noble f riendship.
Two years passed in this delightful
manner two years that made me.
My friend not only attended to my
studies, striving also all the while
to sow the right kind of spiritual
seed, but she procarrcd me a busi
ness situation with a particular
friend of hers, where I remain to
thia day. Nobody but God knows
what I owe this woman. During
.U. l.o U - it. - . p
years I noticed that she grew con
stantly pile and thin; she never
was betrayed into speaking of her
self. Sometimes, when I woald
ask her if she felt worse than usual,
she woujd reply :
44 4 Oh, no; lam only a little
tired that is all.
4 One evening she kept me by
her sofa much longer than was her
custom, while she arranged lessons,
and laid out work enough, it seemed
to me for months.
4,4 Why so much to night V I
inquired, conscious that my heart
:hed and vaguely suspecting the
" 4 Because, dear,' she answered,
I do not want you to come for the
next week, and I am anxious that
you should have sufficient work to
anticipate, as well as to keep you
busy. I think I can trust you to
be a good boy, John .'
44 4 I think you can ma'am,' I
answered almost sobbing.
44 4 If I should see your mother,
my dear boy, before long, what
shall I say to her for you ?'
44 Then I knew all, and mv grief
knew no bounds. It is no use to
go on. She died two days after ;
and when JT hear folks saying
' There's a woman at the bottom of
it,' I fetd like telling the whole
world what a woman did for me."
Ladies' logic is not always the
clearest. A married lady with a
family who lived in a villa, was
asked why she was at the expense
of keeping a cow, seeing that it
would be surely cheaper to buy
milk for the household. 44 Well,"
said she, in reply, 44 we keep the
cow because we have a field quiet
at hand, which answers very nice
ly." 44 But," was the rejoinder,
44 why do you not rent the field ?"
The answer was : 44 Because you
know we have got the cow." A
lady in reduced circumstances men
tioned to a friend that she had iust
arranged to rent a house belonging
to a baker in the city. The friend
was somewhat surprised at the an-
nouncement, considering the ladies
circumstances, and asked if the
expense would not be too much for
her. " Oh, not at; all," was the
answer, 44 we'll take bread for the
The Lynchburg (Va.,) News says:
"We are glad there is one Southern
man in Congress who is not afraid to
say his soul is his own. Vance, of
North Carolina, when asked by a
Yankee member if he thought the re
bellion was right, said that he did,
and under sitniliar circumstances
would rebel again. While we do
not wish to see Southern members
show temper on the floor; we like to
see them talk like men, and when it
is necessary, answer a fool accord
ing to his folly."

the annoyances necessarily entailed
by a trip of that character, and if
they were familiar with the tempers
and dispositions of each other, the
wonder would be, not there were so
few happy marriages under the ar
rangements of modern society, but
that there were so many. Marri
age was not a partnership. He
did not wish to be understood as
saying that alone, for it was a cold
word. Marriage was a companion
ship. Driving home from the bus
iness cares, as Disraeli used, they
would find that the old individuali
ty was gone that a new compan
ionship existed ; and as the best
illustration of the idea of marriage,
be would go back to the time of
Lord William Bussell, who was
represented at his trial by his wife ;
and of all the pictures which hung
in the historic temple, there was
none so attractive and beautiful as
the picture of Lady Bussell in com
panionship with her husband, not
only in the Ourt room, but in the
prison, and in his last moments.
And, if they asked for a definition
of true marriage, it was comprised
in the word companionship.
Yvoman who are afilicted with
drunken husbands may bless the
days that witnessed their weddings,
as there is a mine of wealth in their
possession if they will remove to
Iowa, where a man pays ten cents
for a drink, and his wife collects $3,
000 damages frcm the - man who
sold it to him. This is 1,000 per
cent, better than life insurance, and
the wife keeps her husband, and he
keeps the liquor. " fi ' "
