WE ARE GEOWINO OLD.
We are growing old how the thought will rise,
' When a glance is backward cast, '
On some long remembered spot that lies
In the silence of the past,
It may bo the shrine of our earthly tows,
' Or the tomb of early tears',
But it seetnn like a far off isle to us, . '
J; la tie siora sea if jeanl. :----; m : ' y '
phi wide and wide are the wares that part
' One's steps from its greenness now, .
And we miss the joy of many a heart,
1 And the light of many a brow"; '
I or deep o'er many a stately bark,
Hare the whelming billows rolled, '
That steered with ns from that early markj . .
Oh, friends, we are growing old!
Old in the dimness of the dust
Of our daily toils and cares m ".
Old in the wrecks of love and trust,
Which our burdened memory bears.
Each form may wear to the parting gaze,
The bloom of life's freshness yet,
And beams may brighten our latter days, .
W.hich the- morning never met. '
Batoti! the changes we have seen
In the far and winding way
The graves in our path that hare grows green,
And the locks that have grown gray!
The winters still on our own may spare
Theable or thegold;
But we see their snows upon brighter hair,
And, friends, we are growing old!
We have gained the world's cold wisdom now,
' We have learned to pause and fear; '
Bui where are the living founts whose flow, .
'Was a joy of heart to hear?
We have won the wealth of many a clime, .
And the lore of many a page; .
But 'where i 4 the hope that saw in time, v"
But its boundless heritage? , . .
Will it come iigain when the violet wakes?
. And the woods their youth renew?
We have stood in tho. light of snnny brakes .'
Where the light is deep and blue;'
And cur souls might joy in the spring time then,
But the joy was faint end cold; ) -For
it never could give us the youth again
Of hearts that are growing. old.
TO A SPIDE3.
Spider! thou peedst not run in fear about
To shun mj curious eyes ; .
I won't humanely crush your bowels out; '
Lest thou -fchouldst eat the Qies;
Nor will I roast thee with a fierce delight, v
Tby strange instinctive fortitude to see,
For there is one who might
One day roast me.
Thou'rt Welcome to a rhymer sore perplex'd
The subject of his Terse:
There's many a one who' on a bolter text -
Perhaps might comment worse; -Then
shrink not, old Freemason, from my view,
But'quictly, like, mo, spin out thy line;
Do thou thy work pursue,
As I will mine.
Weaver of snares, thou emblemcst the ways
Of Satan, sire of Ties;
Hell's huge black spider, for mankind he lays
His toils, as thou for flies. '
When Bettys busy eye roams round the room,
Woe to that nice geometry if seen!
BjH where is he whoso broom
. "The eaMh shall clean. ' '
. Spider! of old thy flimsy webs were thought
And. 'twas a likeness true ''
To emblem laws in which the weak are caught,
But which the strong break through;
And if some victim in thy toils is ta'en,
Like some poor client, is that wretched fly;
IH warrant thee thoult drain
His life-blood dry. '
And is" not thy weak work like human sahemes
And care on earth employed! :
Snch are young hopes and. Love's delightful dreams
.So easily desiroy'd! . . '
So does the statesman, while the avengers sleep,
SelfAieemed secure, his wiles in secret lay;
Soon shall destruction sweep ' f
His Work away.
Thou busy labored one resemblance more
May yet the Terse, prolong,
For, spider, thon art like the poet poor,
. Whom thou hast helped in song; .
Both busily our needful food to win, '
. We workj as nature taught, with ceaseless pains
- 'Thy bowels thou dost spin,
. ' I spin my brains. '
THAT SWEET FAiilLIAB SONG.
Oh! sing that sweet familiar song
I heard in other hours,
Ere Joy bad ceased to glide alon .
'In sunshine end in flowers!
Sing to theheart one gentle strain,'
To light the. gathering shade;
And hope, will bask in light again,
Whose splendors never fade. , , ''.
Ob, touch tho lute whose fairy notes
Enchants my wayward soul,
And wake tho melody that flows
; Unchecked by care's control. . . .
For in the light of other days ; - -"
My heart ir glad and gay;
And down lifo's wiMered, tangled-maze, .
i!y wandering footsteps stray.
Oh! sweep tho chords whose golden strains
Fell on my childish ears , ; -
Their liquid harmony remains, .
Throughout many a weary year. :
And still sweet memory wanders back,
Where ulden fancies throng, ' ' ' '
To greet upon their well-known track,
That sweet familiar song. "-.

Kind hearts are more than coronets,

While Lord Ellenborougiiy the ex
GrdTernor General of India, is busily

porting the Tories in the hope that he
may become, in. the event of Earl
Derby supplanting Lord Palmerston,

separated trom him some twenty years,
is leading a wild life among the Arabs.
A correspondent of theiVW York Ob
server writing from Damascus, March
23, thus speaks of her: '
xou have heard of the English
Countesd who married an Arab Sheikh.
Rumor said she was dead. Rumor as
usual was false. -I was in her villa this
mornine, iu'st out of the gates of
Damascus, bhe is at Palmyra with
her husband, who is a pretty Arab,
small in stature, and . generally con-
emptible. Is it not a strange history?
She was Ianthe Countess of Ellenbor
ough, young, beautiful, worshipped.
Her .-'only daughter was the affianced
bride of a Prince of Austria. How
do I kijow that she was beautiful? I
will tell you. . I saw her Boudoir this
morning, and one of its ornaments
was her portrait at twenty years old.
bhe was royally beautnul., lime and
care have changed her perhaps. Among
her books I saw familiar volumes ; and
was "Daily Foody a Well worn copy
too. Another was entitled "Marriage
from a Christian Point ot View, a
French. Her Boudoir was splendidly
ornamented and had her portraits and
her children", one living now, the other
dead, believe. Her history is but half
known. Divorced from Lord Mlen-
borough for intrigues with a German
Prince, she went to a Ureek .Count.
Tired of him, - she went' to Damascus,
where in q visit to. Palmyra she . was
protected from this fellow, whose name

is Meaiui. one- aeiermmea to marry
him. He objected and ran away. ' She
employed Arabs to bring him back.
The English Consul interfered. The
Turkish Governor obiected. She said
sho was Worth 1,500 a year, arid all
Turkey ..could not prevent her doing
as she wished. So she followed Medjul
into the desert and was married to him
m Turkish style. ' JSo one thinks it
will be lasting.' She keeps him sup
plied 'with money, has. given him an
elegant place near Damascus, and. be
fore long will travel away in search of
new adventures. Her mend3 are de
sirous of keeping" her as for away from
England as possible, and it is a matter
of surprise that they sent her elegant
presents of money on hearing of this
marriage, though they knew it to be
both illegal and immoral.- l. assure
you that I found it-almost impossible
to believe that I was in the villa of one
who had ruled in the splendid circles
of St. . James, who- had been - a special
favorite with the -Iron Duke, : who had
rivalled royalty itself in. England, and
who was now. in an .Arab tent, the wife
of a dog of an Anafcee. He is not

DEAD ME3TS SHOES. "?
One of the worst mistakes men make
says the Cleveland Herald, is, in leav
ing gifts and charities to he dispensed
after, their death; and this applies as
well to mere donations, as to legacies
to children and relatives. In truth, o
such an.ome it may be said, "he heapeth
up riches', and knoweth' not who'shal
gather them. : - . - ' 1
' The grasp upon wealth even with
the benevolent is tight, and, in mos
qases, death is the only power which
can loose it; -but if men' would reason
upon the subject of their donations, as
upon any. other business transaction
then the man of moderate wealth would
content himself to drop his gifts nlong
the path of life, even if in small sums
rather than risk' the danger - from
squandering of large legacies after his
death; and .the' man- of overflowing
riehes would direct his thousands with
his own loving hand, and when his own
ejes could see that his indentions wete
not thwarted, nor his - benevolence
Rich men, too,' make sad errors in
regard to their children, it is a very
common idea that because the father
has toiled early and late for his money.
eating the bread of frugality and wear
ing fhe robes "of economy, that the son
must do likewise, whether he has?the
disposition or not. The difference in
the great facts which underlie the being
of father and son are forgotten: to wit
that one "was . bora without wealth, the
other was bora in' affluence. Hence
the one.felt his entire dependence upon
his own exertions, and the other did
not. .To this error can be traced the
ruin of so many young men, whom the
death of a father leaves rolling in
wealth. - It is bad enough for a boy
to have the curse of wealthy parent
ago upon his birth, but adds to that
curse to keep him impatiently waiting
for his father's shoes. A division of
the wealth, with that son, while the
father, can at least by his advice, con
trol it, would materially lessen the
chalices of injury to the child, - and
bring audible prayers for tho preser
vation of that father s life rather than
secret wishes for his' death. .. '
Of this rreat error in leaving wealth
to be . distributed after death, the
amous McDonough estate of New
Orleans affords a glaring illustration.
At McDonough's death, his estate was
estimated at 5,000,000 dollars; now it
is estimated at 2,230,000 dollars; and
it has gone like water through a seive
as follows over 250,000 dollars spent
in litigation; over 100,000 dollars in
charges and commission; over 500,000
dollars lost in interest and delays; and
over 500,000 dollars lost in pillage and
decay. , ,
The paper from which wb take the
Ko one dollar of charity had ever
yet been received from the estate, not
one negro had been sent to Liberia,
nor the tears and sorrows of one poor
orphan boy ever been assuaged. At
every point and in every way the last
will and testament of John McDonough
had been frustrated and thwarted. -
DEATH OF AN ECCENTRIC CHARACTER.
On tke 8th ujt., says the Leeds (Enq.)
Intelligencer, were consigned to. their
final resting-place, in the churchyard
oi leigniey, ine mortal remains ot one
of the most eccentric individuals that
ever lived. In fact, a parallel., seems
scarcely possible, of a man voluntarily
going to bed in good health, and re
maining there for a period of forty
nine . years: ine man s name was
"William Sharp, and he lived at a place
called "Worlds, in the parish oflveigh
ley. He was the son of a small
farmer, and when thirty year3 of age
he took to his bed and the room which
he never left till carried thence on the
day of his itinera!, lhe principal
reason seems to have Deen a. matri
monial disappointment. The wedding
day . was fixed. Accompanied by
friend he wended his way to the parish
church, and there awaited the arrival
of the bride elect. But the bride never
came.. The father of the damsel
sternly and steadily refused his con
sent. This preyed heavily on a mind
not endowed with more than average
intellect, and bearing unmistakable
traces of hereditary singularity; and
the result was, that the young man
consigned himself to a small room
measuring about nine feet in every di
rection, with the determination of
spending the remainder of his exist
ence between the blankets, which
resolution he kept most unflinchingly.
In this dreary cell, whose only inlet
for fresh air during thirty-eight years
was the door occasionally left open, did
this strange being immure himself.
He obstinately refused to speak to any
one. His father, by his will, made
provision for the temporal wants of his
eccentric son, and so secured him
constant attendant. He certainly,
physically at least, did credit to hi
food', for, though arrived at the old age
oi seventy-nine years, his nesn wa3
firm, fair; and un wrinkled, , save with
fat j and the estimate of his weight was
two hundred and forty pounds. Short
ly before he expired he was heard to
i r T" TTa-it -
exclaim, "roor jjiii, poor urn, poor
I3ul bharp: the most connected sen
tence he had been known to utter, for
many' a year.

One of the best thiccrs we. haveheard
about preaching the Gospel for some
lme, tell from the hps of an old stal
wart, hardy, Grand Bank fisherman.-
He went on talking about the Gospel,
its mission, and the mission of ministers
m preaching. The vital doctrines of
Christianity he placed in a very matter-
of-fact, practical light; and urged the
bold, plain, earnest proclamation of
hem.. 1 his only will accomplish the
work Christ intended; sinners must be
caught into the kingdom as men catch
fish. And it is useless to flinsr into
the swelling billow a little pin-hook
hat can't so much as get a chance to
sink. Fishermen- ocean fishermen
work with a strong line and the best
hook. If you are going to catch a
fish and really get him secure, you must
hook him under the nave bone. And
that's what ministers have got, to do
with sinners in preaching the Gospel
they must hook them under the nape

trifling business a man would not
earn hi3 salt. Hook them under the
nape bone and you get them; you can
pull them in and feel safe and thank

Church, having been taught Christ and
his doctrine, is worth something. He
won't go into the vineyard, to sit idle,
and he won t do as the man who, when
commanded, said, "I go, sir, and went
not. But how many fish in a tumultu
ous world to catch sinners with a pin
hook! How. many work with the strong
line the law and its terrors, and the
calls of a crucified Lord and merciful
God? How many drop the line and
hook down below the surf into the con
science? -Prcshilerian Herald. .
SALARIES OF CLERKS OF THE BANS OF
A clerk in the Bank of England
enters at the age of seventeen, on a
salary of one hundred and fifty dollars
a year, with an additional hundred if
he is punctual every morning. His
salary is increased fifty dollars a year
till his income reaches four hundred
dollars. It is then raised twenty-five
dollars a -year till it reaches an annual
salary of five hundred dollars. From
that time the salary is increased at the
rate of forty dollars a year till the
gentleman has worked his way up to
the comfortable income of thirteen
hundred dollars. But this is not all.
Every employee of the Bank is entitled
to a retiring pension of an amount pro
portioned to the number of years he
has served. After forty years' service,
we believe a clerk is entitled to retire
upon a pension equal to the amount of
the salary he enjoyed at the time of his
retirement. When a clerk is absent
on leave he forfeits thirty-three cents
per day an arrangement which has
double advantage of securing the Bank
from imposition, and of giving a modest
man the courage to ask for- leave of
absence when it is necessary; indeed
the system generally seem3 to us the
only one by which a faithful service
can be rationally expected.
