WAITING FOR A BOAT.
' Upon Missouri's treacherous shore.
From railroads far remote.
There stood a throng of anxious men
! All Waiting for a boat, '
Unanimous was the complaint
Proceeding from each throat :
"When will this cursed river rise ? .
We're waitiDg for a boat.
, . Printer. . .
"We've not sufficient paper left
On which to print a note ;
We're forced to stop onr prow till the
- Arrival of the boat !" ; '
. . . Merchant, . ;
Our stock of goods is all run out;
No money's now afloat,
And business is exceeding dull
We're waiting for a boat.' '
I can't obtain provisions here,
There's neither chick nor shoat J '
My guests are all dissatisfied ,
I'm waiting for a boat." "
'I'm tired of this ; to business I '
My time cannot devote ; '
There's nothing here to build with X
Am waiting for a boat."
"I can't get stuff of any kind,
Enough to make a coat ;
My customers are all in rags 1
I'm waiting for a boat."
"My liquor I can't recommend. '
I know it scalds the throat ;
Folks swear I'm selling 'poison' but
I'm waiting for a boat."
"I'll loose that case unless I've the
Authority to quote;
My library has not arrived,
' I'm waiting for a boat.
"That patient I must try to save
It I'd some antidote
I think that I could cure him but
I'm waiting for a boat.
"1 left my home to aid the church,
The christian cause promote,
But Bibles here are very scarce
I'm waiting for a boat. '
"My country I must represent,
r I can get the Tcte '
(There's no inhabitants there yet)
I'm waiting for a boat."
Jo ten Proprietor.
"My .'site might soon be settled, and
Become a place ef note,
If emigrants could get there but
They're waiting for a boat.
"I hope my wife will soon get here,
It six weeks since he wrote
Why don't she take the stage, instead
Of waiting for a boat?"
Thus, where Missouri's shallow tide
No tribulations bloat,
Thote anxious men with folded arms
Were waiting for a boat.
Once there was a very pretty little
girl, whose name was Lula. She had
kind father and mother, who would do
everything in their power they thought
proper to make her comfortable and hap
a y 11 1
py. l et tne nine gin oiten uiu tilings
which she knew to be wrong, , altnough
the was invariably sorry for it after
wards. There' was another little girl, about
Lula's own age, whose name was Rosa,
L'lla's constant playmate and companion.
They loved each othtr, and shared each
other's joys as if they were sisters.
But one day, while coming home frcm
school. Lula perceived a very pretty rib
bon which Rosa had dropped in the path.
She picked it up and instead of return
ing it to the owner, she put it into her
"What a pretty ribbon it is," thought
she ; "it's just such a one as I was want
ing this long time."
When she came home that evening,
somehow she was not the same bright
and cheerful Lula as usual ; the same
happy earnest smile was not on her
blooming countenance. So after tea,
when they were sitting around the cheer
ful fire, her mother perceived that she
was quieter and seemingly unhappier
"Lula," said she, "what is the matter,
rny ennu; are you sick f" . lnis was
touching her on a tender chord, and bur
sting into tears, she exclaimed
"As I was coming home this evening I
saw this ribbon lying on the path; I
knew it to be Rosa's, for I had seen her
drop it; but, thinks I, it's so pretty, I
will take it and keep it myself, and Rosa
will never know who has it. But it is
not mine it cannot afford me any pleas
ure while I have it, and to-morrow I will
return it to her at school." So saying,
she dropped the ribbon in her mother's
Her mother led her to her little cham
ber, and there both kneeling by the bed
side, they freely asked God's pardon.
Lula retired, but the pillows did not seem
so soft and downy as usual, and unseen
spirits seemed to continually whisper in
her ear, "you stole a ribbon."
With a sad and heavy heart she fell
asleep. Presently she thought fehe saw
a large man approach her, dressed in &
suit of many colors, apparently of old
rags stiched together, and having a lare
sack under his arm. He also bore a blaz
ing torch m his hand. At .first sight of
him Lula was sorely frightened ; but he
approaching her said :
"Sweet Lull, don't be f ngntened, I tiring
you good tidings. I want you to come
with nie to my far on sunny nome, wnere
there is no sickness, no pain, . no trouble,
as on this gloomy earth."
"But," said Lula, still a little fnght-
ened,ai.d drawing the clothes close around
her,',4father and mother would be grieved
to find that their only daughter would leave
"Yet," said the man, "would you pre
fer to live in this dreary, comfortless
world, compared with my happy, cheer
ful home ? There allk is peace and love
and joy. Neither is 'there any winter
there ; all the time it is summer, delight
ful summer. The most beautiful birds live
there, and are continually warbling their
merry songs, morning, noon, and night.
Jump into this sack, sweet Lula, and
come with me.
Being captivated by his flattering and
promising words, Lula jumped into the
sack, and soon they were on their way to
the "happy world." They traveled on
for days and even weeks, as Lula thought,
and when she asked him still how far
they had yet to go, he answered not a
word. At length they came to a dark
and shady forest, and after they had pro-
ceeaed tnrougn it a long ana toilsome
wav, they came to a certain place, where,
after they had spoken a few words which
Lula could not understand, a trap-door in
stantly flew open, and after they entered
it fell. Here the glimmering light of
the torch only made the dark cavernous
hole appear doubly horrible.
They descended down, down, and pres
ently Lula thought ' she heard a noise of
some kind. She listened again, and
more attentively, and sure enough, she
heard yelling and hallowing of the most
horrid character. 'After they had de
scended a long way, they reached a large
and spacious room, through which ghosts
of the most hideous forms were stalking;
fierce and venomous serpents were lying
in every corner, and everything truly pre
sented a most hcrnd aspect.
Lula then earnestly besought the man
that he would take her back to her happy
home, where she had lived writhher dear
father and mother. She thought how-
well she would like to be playing with
Rosa, as she used to do. But then the
thought struck her of the theft which she
committed by taking Rosa's ribbon, and
she felt now that she was being justly
punished. And she thought, too, if she sists, not in the circumstances of the ac
were only back, she would never sin any tual issue, nor even in the success with
more. But now she need never expect
to get back, and constantly must pass a
life of horror in this miserable abode.
Sobbing and crying bitterly, she gave
herself up to dispair.
All at once a score or more of inhuman
wretches clutched her, and making a
most hideous nDi'se, seemed to tear her to
pieces, when she awoke, and lo ! it was
a dream., Her mother was bending ten-
derlv over her, and telling her to arise,
The sun was shining gratefully through
the window of her chamber, and the
birds were gayly chirping their matin
songs. Lula arose that morning an al-
tered girl, lnrougn time sne grew up
to be a good and inteilligent woman, and
during a long life of usefulness in the
community in which she lived, never for
got the divine instruction or scripture,
"thou shalt not steal."
Relations Between LawTcrs
Four years ago, that is to say, in the
month of July, in 1854, there was
living at Swinfen-hall, in the county of
Stafford, an aged gentleman of fair es-
late, namta camuei owiuitn. lie was
the son and heir of John Swinfen, who
had been twice married, and who by his
second wife left a numerous family the

his wife, were received at Swinfen-hall,
and there took up their abode. This was
in lb4S, after the death of Mrs. bamu-
el bwinf en. It lurther appears that be-
tween this period and July lbo4, the tes
tamentary arrangements made by Samu
el Swinfen were such that Henry John
would have succeeded to the inheritance
of the property, but, as it happened, the
son died before the father. On the 15th
of June, 1S54, Henry John Swinfen sud
denly departed this life, leaving Patience

derthe circumstances described, to make
this disposition of his property, and as
to the validity of the documents thus con
veying the estate to his daughter-in-law.
Had .the case stopped at this point it
would probably not have called tor the
notice we now bestow upon it.
The will of Samuel Swinfen was d

tyot John bwinten, wasbamuers heirat
law, and the issue thus raised, came on
for trial in due course at the Lent As
sizes of 1856. The estates divised by
the will to Patience Swinfen and claim- j
ed by Frederick were worth 1,700 a
year, a prize well calculated to provoke
stout fkrhtinjr. Accordingly, counsel of
the highest standing were retained on
both sides, the lady being represented by
no less an advocate than Sir F. ihesiger,
new Lord High Chancellor of England,
and the gentleman by Sir A. Cockbum,
now Chief Justice or the Common Pleas.
Now comes the critical and extraordina
ry point in the proceedings. The case
had been conducted through, the first day
of this great trial,, when, at the be
ginning of the next, Si. F. Thesiger, on
Mrs. Swinfen's behalf, came to an ar
rangement with Sir A. Cockburn, acting
for Frederick Swinfen, that, he, Fred
erick should take the estLte as heir at
law in pursuance of his claim, but that
out of that estate Mrs. Swinfen should
enjoy an annuity of 700, making, with
bur jointure of 300, a total income of
1,000 a year. This agreement, howev
er, thus arranged between the counsel in
the cause, Mrs. Swinfen refused to rati
fy, assertiug that it was made without her
authority, againther desire, and contra
ry to her interests, and repudiating the
act, to which her advocate had committed
her. Here, therefore, was a point rais
ed of no common interest ; being nothing
less, indeed, than the extent of right or
power acquired by counsel entrusted with
the general management of a cause.
The heir, at law endeavored to enforce
the agreement, but without success.
Mrs. Swinfen again appeared in a
court of law. this time represented by a
Mr. R. C. Kennedy, who has prosecuted
with indefatigable vigor.Jthe claims of his
client. The Court of Common Pleas had
been first applied to by the heir at iaw
for the enforcement of Sir F. Thesiger's
agreement, but it refused to crive the
powers required. The Court of Chan
eery was next appealed to, but with a sim
ilar result. The agreement, in short,
could not be enforced, and under the di
rections of the Court of Chancery, ' the
original cause, interrepted by compro
mise in '56, was commenced a second
time at Staflbrd on Friday last, and after
a long hearing, which has filled the col
umns of the London press, was termina
ted on Tuesday evening by a verdict in
favor of Mrs. Swinfen.
The true importance of the case con
whicn a lady's courage has at length been
crowned, but in the extent to which the
position, or at any rate the practice of
advocates, will undoubtedly be affected.
We cannot say that the relatonsof coun-
sel and client have been absolutely es
tablished, or that the powers lodged witn
the former have been finally defined, but
the conduct and fortunes of Mrs. bwin
fen in first repudiating her advocate's act,
then resisting to the utmost the proceed-
ings which were based upon it, and ulti-
mately winning her cause in spite of all,
will impress council with caution.-Times
Children have rights- unalienable
and God-given rights; and chief among
these are the rights to laugh when they
are happy, and cry when they are unhap
py, and to make a noise and break things
generally. A healthy child must of ne
cessity be an incessant tiddle toddler, a
perpetual jumping-jack, an inevitable tee

scream, and upset the table, and bump
its head, and cry, and go at it again

Time Bargain System In NcwTcrlr.
It is proposed in certain quarters ta -
procure from the next Legislature a' law
abolishing the system of tune bargains in
stocks, flour, "provisions, &c, and making
it a penal oflense to buy ,or sell m that
manner, punishable by imprisonment in
the penitentiary. It is all folly to at
tempt to prevent by legislation peoplo
from buying and selling, whether .'they '
have the articles or not. Time bargains
are authorized by law, and the winner at '.
them can by no process known to tho
courts collect the proceeds. This is suf
ficient for all practical, purposes -all at
tempts to legislate beyond this is endeav-"
oring to legislate as to the time when tha
sun shall rise cr set. Temperance leg
islation and laws against time bargaisa
are twin absurdities. Herald.

Home, wire, Children.
Is there a divinity, Jaw, or medical
student, who does not aspire to be a lead-' .
er in his profession ? Is there a mer
cantile drudge who does not aspire o be'
at the head of a firm? These are par
tial hopes, to be obtained only by a few.
Is there one man however exalted,
however humble who does not look for
ward to home, a vrife, and children, as
the goal of his endtavors, his toils, and
his cares. This is a general hope, in
the reach of all. Home, wife, children,
are the talismanic words which have
guided men to the noblest actions to the!
greatest efforts of genius and exertion.
