There is no hereuved mother who i nn
reud the ensuing lines without tears, both
of sorrow and of hope. They are by
Mr. Robert S. Chilton, of Washington,
and reflect honor upon his heart nnd his
poetical 'gift divine.' Dempster has mar
ried them to the most appropriately touch
ing music, and sings them with ull his ac
customed feeling and effect :
She sits beside the cradle,
And her tears are streaming fast,
For she sees the present only,
While she thinks of all the past j
Of the days so full of gladness,
When her first bom's answering kiss
Filled her soul with such a rapture
That it knew no other bliss. .
Oh! those happy, happy moments 1
They but deepen her despair,
For she bends above the cradle,
And her baby is not there!
There arc words of comfort spoken,
And the leaden clouds of grief
Wear the smiling bow of promise,
And she fuels a sad relief ;
But her wavering thoughts will wander
Till they settle on the Bccne
Of the dark and silent chamber,
And of all that might have been !
For a little vacant garment,
Or a shining tress of hair,
Tells her heart, in tones of anguish,
That her baby is not there !
She sits beside the cradle,
But her tears no longer flow,
For she sees a blessed vision,
And forgets all earthly woe
Saintly eyes look down upon her, ,
And the voice that hushed the sea
Stills her spirits with the whisper,
"Sudor them to come to Me."
And while her soul is lifted
On the soaring wings of prayer,
Heaven's crystal gates swing inward,
And she see's her baby there I
fThe followin? is beautiful on of
those little gems that touch the heart.
Mother 1 watch the little feet
Climbing o'er the garden wall,
Bounding through the busy street,
Ranging cellar, shed and hall,
Never count the moments lost
Never mind the time it costs ;
Little feet will go astray,
Guide them, mother, while you may.
Motherl watch the little hand
Picking berries by the way,
Making houses in the sand,
Tossing up the fragrant hay.
Never dare the question ask i
"Why to me the weary task ?"
The same little hands may prove
Messengers of light and love.
Mother! watch the little tongue
Prattling eloquent and wild ;
What is said and what Is sung,
By the joyous, happy child.
Catch the words while yet unspoken,
Stop the vow before 'tis broken j
This same tongue may yet proclaim
Blessings in a Saviour's name.
Motherl watch the little heart,
Beating soft and warm for you j
Wholesome lessons now Impart j
Keep, O keep that young heart true,
Extricating every weed,
Sowing good and precious seed j
Harvest rich you then may see,
Ripen for eternity.
The Song of Toil.
BY AUGUSTINE DVGAKK.
Let him who will, rehears the song
Of gentle love and bright romance
Let him who will, with tripping tongue,
Lead gleaming thoughts to Fancy's uance,
But let me strike mine iron harp,
Arouse the free and bold!
My hands that iron harp shall sweep,
Till from each stroke new strains recoil,
And forth the sounding echoes leap,
To join the rousing Son of Toil j
Till men of thought their thoughts speak out,
And thoughts awake In kindred mind ;
And stirring words shall arm the weak,
And fetters cease to bind!
And crashing, soon, o'er soul and sense,
That glorious harp, whose Irou strings
Are Labor's mighty instruments,
Shall shake th thrones of morUl kings
And ring of ax, and anvil note,
And rush of plow through yielding soil,
Shall S-vel! the on of Toil !

The I'allirr's MrnliiRt'iii.
A nohlo lluniiiri!in lord, Count Christ-
inn , nun come 10 puss i tit ni-iison
at lliiden, urcompnnied hy his dnughter
Helen. Young, beautiful, churuiin, und
heiress to nn immense fortune b it her by
her mother, the young countess soon
found herself surrounded by a h M of ad
mirers. Adorers of ull kinds were not
wnnting rich und poor, noble nnd ob
scure, tender nnd passionate, grave und
ijay. It was a perpetual toun.auu nt, of
which she waj the ijueen, and where the
aspirants contended for her hand by ex
hibiting their address, grac, and seduc
tive ipialities. When sho entered her
carriage ten cavaliers were in the snddle,
caracoling around her culicic. At the
ball, the most elegant dancers were de?
voted to her. They had neither cures,
attentions, nor sighs, but for her ; where-
j at many beautiful women French, 1'ng'
hrth und Russian were pariiculnrly mor
tified. Amongst these pressing suitors,
Helen selected the most worthless. The
Chevalier Guetan wns, it is true,
acham:i; fellow, pule und delicnte, with
fine blue eyes, and long, black, wavy
hair. In the place of true passion, he
had eloquence of look and word ; in short,
he dressed with taste, danced marvelous-
ly, and sang like ltubini.
But, unhappily, these advantages were
contrasted by great vices. A dissipated
gambler, and unprincipled, the Chevalier
Gaetan had left Naples in consequence of
some scandalous adventures in which h
had been implicated. The count, after
hnvincr informed himself of these facts,
esired, but too late, to put Lis daughter
on her guard against a dangerous affec
tion. Helen listened neither to advice,
the prayers, nor the orders of her father.
The mun for whom he endeavored to de
stroy her esteem was already master of
her heart, nnd she obstnlutely refused to
believe in the disgraceful antecedents of

do with a father who lacked energy, per-
laps he would have become the happy
husband of the young countess, and the
peaceful possessor of the immense fortune
with which he was so frantically in love.
But the count knew how to carry his
point either by management or force.
He wns an old lion. He had preserveil
all the vigor of youth and all the rudo
firmness of an indomitable character,
which nothing but paternal tenderness
had ever softened. Self-willed in his
resolutions, stern in his execution cf
them, he cast about for means to put hors
dt combat this carpet-knight, who had
dared to undertake to become his son-in-
law in spite of hiin, when accident threw
into his hands a letter which Guetun had
written to Helen. The chevalier, impa
tient to attaia the goal of his desires, pro
posed in direct terms to the young count
ess an elopement, and suggested a cl
destine meeting, at the hour when the
count wns in the habit of going out to
play whist with some gentlemen of Lis
acquaintance, at the Conversation House.
A rose placed in Helen's bosom was to
be tho cignal of consent. But the young
girl had not read the adroitly intercepted
"Put this flower in your dress," said
the count to her, offering a rose, "and
come with me."
Helen smilingly obeyed and took her
father's arm. In me course of their
walk they met Gaetan, who, seeing the
rose, was overjoyed. Th'-n the count
conducted his daughter to the residence
of one of their acquaintances, and re
quested her to wait until he cam for her.
That done, ho returned to the little house
in which he lived, at the outskirts uf Ba
den, on the Lichtenthal road. He had
sent away his servants, and was alone.
At the appointed Hour uaelan arrivea
the rendezvous, leaped lightly over tnjcagC4. anj j, was her curious to see
wall of the garden, and finding the door j cniureni m0 bear, the tigers, a blue
shut, entered the house through one of tho moun,ain iTjit anj favorite cat, all play,

his steps Inwards the apartment of Helen.
There, instead of the daughter, he found
the father, armed with a brin e of pistols.
The count closed tho door und snid to the
wretched (iuetuu, trembling with terror,
"1 could kill you; I huve the right to do
so. You have entered my hu e at night.
You huve broken into it. 1 could treat
you us a felon ; nothing could be more
"But, sir," replied Gaetan, almost in
audibly, "I am not u robber."
"And what nre you, then? You huve
come to steul my daughter to steul an
heiress to steal a fortune. Here is
your letter, which unveiled to me your
criminal intentions. I shall show you no
mercy ! But, to tuke your life, I had no
need of this (run. You know tho skill of
my right arm; a duel would have long
ago lid me of you. To uvoid scat id nl, I
did not wish a duel ; and now I wilt slay
you only ut tho last extremity, if you re
fuse to obey me."
"What is your will, sir?"
"You must leave Baden not in a few
days, not to-morrow but this very instant.
You must put two hundred leagues be
tween it and you, und never again come
into tho presence of my daughter or my
self. As the price of your obedience, and
to pay your traveling expenses, I will give
you twenty thousand fruncs, ($1000)."
The Chevulier wished to speuk.
"Not a word!" cried the count, in a
voice of thunder. "You know me ! Un
derstand ! I hold your life at my mercy,
and a moment's hesitation will be punish'
ed with death."
"I obey," Bta'iiiiiiercd the chevalier.
"In good time ! Your twen.y thousand
francs are in that secretary ; take them !"
"Permit me to decline your offer."
An imperious gesture overcame the
fulso modesty which the chevalier ex
pressed feebly, and like a man who de
clines for form's sake.
"But," said he, "the secretary is lock-
, e J;
"There is no key in it."
"Break the lock, then."
"What ! you wish me to ?"
"Breuk the lock : or I'll shoot you.'
llie pistol was again presenteu, as un
. . . . i ...
arg.Mi.ent which admitted no reply. Gae-
"It is well !" Faid the count. "Take
that package of bank notes; they are
your's. 1 lave you a pocket-book ?"
"What does it contain ?"
"Some papers letters addressed to
"Let your pocket-book fall in front of
the secretary you have broken open. '

evidences of a burglary. I mca

had club feet. One evening, Paddy was
seated in his own parlor, with a compan

recruiting-serjeant, who, having an eye
to business, stood treat, and over his punch
talked largely of the great doing's and
mighty wonders he had been eye-witness
of. Paddy was all attention.

" I don't care if I do," said Paddy. '
So the Queen's shilling was accepted ,
which Paddy said they should drink ; and
thereupon the soldier declared he was just
the man for the army.
Now," said Paddy, after the money
was pent, you've been telling us of a
great many wonderful things that you've
seen in Indy and them foreign parts."
To be sure I have," said the serjeant.
Pad.ly drew himself back, and, placing
his right foot on the table, looked coolly
into the other's facc and Baid, " Did you
ever see the f elW of that ?"
The man cf war, starting up in amaze
