They ere gone, the pleasant holidays, it ho. merry Christiana and the the New Year's, with ell their delijhts and all their joyous festivities. They como not not till a twelvemonlh lias stepped between, with new pleasures, new (enjoyments and new duties. But shall they be forgotten? Never! ill that is joyous, all that is delightful, we love to remember, while oil that is bloomy and painful, we strive to forgot. Even thus in looking back to our ear lier years we lose sight of our childish sorrows and trials, or if mirrored at nil in the retrospective glass of memory, they loom up but dimly before our mtntal vis ion, as islands in an occan-fog, scarcely discernible through the mists that sur round them. Strange that fond Memory when tlo brings again The past, removes its bitterness an pain, And but restores its brightest hapiieetapotsj Its sunniest fckies-itscoolesl, shadiest grots. We scarce remember childhood hath a day Of storm and darkness; such are pawed uwny. And when we greet those oft-returning hours. They fling us back the funeliino ami the flowers, And friends, recalled, that in the grave lie hid, Leave all their faults beneath the cofiiu's lid 'A merry Christmas and a liannv New hi i j -'ear!" . Such was my greeting from time immemorial, even beyond my earliest rec ollection. Brothers and Sistcra shouted itatme, as we melon Christmas morning, Father and Mother smilingly utereJ it, as we exchanged our pleasant salutations, and the grey-haired old Gram'pirents, r.t whose groaning board we ate our Christ mas supper, pressed it on my clink with a'loviner kiss, while Aunts, Uneles, and Cousins, echoed and re echoed it, till the i i i i near old wal s rantr ansin. night of the first month of tho"pr.h.S year, to the precious past I canno help it.

The pretty lady sprang up from the ta ble, a new determination heightening the faint color in her cheeks, and bringing back the sparkle to her blue eyes.

Theyoungtnerchantwas leaning, with a weary, hall Rejected sort of expression, over his deslf. about which were scatter ed bills, drafts and letters in endless con fusion. Something had gone wrong. His clerks knew this when he came into his store that mokng, so gloomy and reti cent, so thoroutlly unlike his usual brisk, energetic, joviajjianners that always car ried sunshine irit the dark ware-rooms.

The cloud was all gOnei There was a world of fond tenderness that looked down from those daik eyes on the lady. "Why, bless your little heart, Adeline! you havn't come clear off here for that? I was more to blame than you a great deal, but some business matters were troubling me, and then I'm a touchy fellow, I guess, anyhow." "Ifo you're not; but I shouldn't have lived through the dny, if Iliad felt all the time. that you were displeased with mo. But you do love me just as well as ever?" ' That smile, that glance, would have satisfied any wife. "That wife of mine is a little angel, any how," murmured Harry Leeds to himself, as he arranged his disordered desk, with a face as changed and bright as the sky outside, for the sun had suddenly plung ed through tho clouds.

I don't want to raise a fuss, but " "What's the matter.John?' inquired half a dozen voices; "what do you meant Have wo done anything to hurt your feel ings?" "Yes.youhave; all ofyou-have hurt my feelings, and I've got just this to sa about it: Here's every gal in the room been kissed mighty nigh a dozen times apiece, and there's my wife who I consid er as likely as any of 'em, has not had at single one to-flight; and I just tell yd now, if she don't get es many kisses balance of the time as any gal i the) room, the. man that slights her haV to fight that's all, Now with your plays!"
