ON THE FEBBY.
On the ferry, sailing over, To the city, lying dim In the yellow mist of evening By Hie river's further liiu ; On the terry, gii-ini? outward To tho ocean calm and cold, Where the blue liny dip* its waters Iv the sunsets Heeling gold. On the ferry, gazing outward, O, thou ocean, deep and wide, EYeay pulse is healing niensuro Witli the lyintli of the tide! Loving waves kiss warm and eager, Motionlo.ss lliu great ships Miami, While above each pandHlou* pennon Lures me with a beckonim* hand. Calm on the uneasy waters Lean the sunset bars of flame, Like flu, legendary ladder, On which angel* went and came. In another summer evening, On a little way before, I shall reach another ferry, Seeking swilt a dimmer shore, I shall cross a wider terry, Crossing to return no more, Balling for a fairer city, Waitlug ou a lovlier shore. Life iritiy touch the soul so gontly, We can hardly cull it rough; Yet well all say In its closing Our brief day's been long enough. Thus I stand with gathered garments, Krc the deep*, shadows fall; O, say heart, drop thy last Idol, Listening for the boatman's call. Come, and by my apirit sinking, By my shrinking lours untold; Bear me gently o'er these waters, Charon, boatman calm and cold. him a lift out of bachelordom, and she said'yes.' It therefore became abso lutely necessary to get the old man's permission, so, as Peebles said, that ar rangement might be made lor hopping the conjugal twig. Peebles said he'd rather pop the In terrogatory to all of old Merriweather's daughters, and his sisters, and his fe male cousin, and his aunt Hannah in the country, and the whole of bis female relations, than ask old Merriweather.— But it had to be done, and so he sat down and studied out a speech which he was going to disgorge to old Merri weather the very llrst chance he got to shy at him. SoPceblcs dropped In 01 him one Sunday evening, when nil the family had meandered around to class ■Meting, and found biui doing a sum ii beer measure, trying to calculate the ex act number of quarts bis interior could hold without blowing the head oil' of him. "How ar you, Peeb?" said old Merri weather, as Peebles walked ill as \vhi;> s a chunk of chalk, and trembling as i c had swallowed a condensed earth unke. Peebles was afraid to answer ecause he wasn't sure about tha peach, lie knew lie had, to keep hi rip on it while he had it there, or i -ould .slip away from him ([iiieker thai n oiled eel through an auger hole. S c blurted right out : 'Mr. Merriweather. Sir, perhaps i may not be unknown to you, sir, tha during au extended period of some liv •ears I have been busily engaged inth i.osccutiou of a commercial enterpris i 'Is that so? and keepin' it a secret a the time, while I thought you was ten din' store? Well, by George your one of 'em, now ain't you ?' Peebles had to begin all over again t get tbe run ot it. 'Mr. Merriweather: Sir, perhaps 1 may not be unknown to you that durin an extended period of some live years uive been engaged in the prosccutio ofacoH._--.elal cutei-pi-he with the di termination to procure a sufflcie! maintenance ' 'Sit down Peeb, and help yourself t leer. Don't stand there holding you latlikea bind beggar with the paralj lit. What's the matter with you, any way? I never see you behave your--, so in all my born day?;' Peebles was knocked out of time i rain, and had to wander back and tak a fresh start. 'Mr. Merriweather : Sir. it may m be unknown to you that dining an ex tended period of some live years I ha\ been engaged In the prosecution of commercial enterprise with the dete miuation to procure a suHlcient luaint* nance ' 'A which ancc ?' asked old Mori weather; but Peebles held on to the 1* word like It was his only chance, an went on. 'In the hope that some day I migl enter wedlock, and bestow my earthl possessions upou one whom I could c» my own. 1 have been a lonely nm hir, and have felt that it is uot good to nan lobe alone; therefore ' 'Xeither is It, Peebles and I'm a lired glad you dropped in.

Now you st git up and git, did boss, or I'll nock what little brains out of you ju've got left.' With that old Merriweather took eeblesby the shirt'collar and the part his punts that wears out first if he sit. iwii much and shot him into the streets s if he had just run against a locomo vc going at forty miles an hour. Be re old Merriwerther hud a chance to ut the front door, Peebles collected lis legs and one thing and another that ere lying around on the pavement, nd arranged hitnselt iv a vertical nosi -011 aud yelled out: 'Mr. Merriweather : Sir, it may not c uuknown to you ' which made le old man so wretched mad that h ent out and set "a tmlliiXl-1-. on Pee les before he had a chance to lift a hro gan, and there was a scientific dog ilgh Ith odds and favor ol the dog, unti ley jrot to the fence, and even then 'eebles would heve carried bull-terrie lorae, griped like a elauip on to his leg 'it hadn't been that the meat was too 'lider, and the dog, feelling cortaii lat something or other must eventual r give way, held on until he got hi lop oilPeeMc calf, and Pceble wen ome half a pound lighter, while Merri weather asserts to tills day Unit the ad to dvaw all the dog's teeth to ge le llesh out of his mouth, "for lie lvi v awlul hold for such a smaH animal. Of course Merriweather'. daughtc card about it, and she was so mad tha lie never gave the old man any peace ntil he went ai-onud tho next day to cc Peebles about it. Peebles looked ale as a ghost from loss of blood and ieef, and he hud a whole pice ofmii-lin vrapped around his oil' leg. Merri veathei' said : "Pecb, I'm sorry about that muss la-t light, but if you didn't behave like a aving maniac I'm a loafer. I never see such a deliberate ass since I was jorn. What's the meaning of it, any "I was only tryin' to ask you to let nc many your daughter," groaned Pee "Grcat—wliat?—you didn't mean to say—well, 1 hope 1 may be shot.

And Peebles looked ruefully at his detective leg and wished he hadn't been such a fool; but be went out and mar ried the girl, and lived happily with her lor about two mouths; and at the end of j that time he told a conlidentiiil friend that lie would willingly take more trou ble and undergo a million, lnoi'e j bites to get rid of her.
