When the sun of childhood shone bright,
Ere my brow was o'erclouded, or heart knew
I've roamed o'er thy hanks with delight ;
Have gazed on each bright, laughing ways as
That gradually rose to my view,
Till it threw o'er my soul, In a magical spell,
Blest charms that my infancy knew.
O, proud flowing river! how crnceful you wind
By mountain, thronirh valley and dell i
The inem'rles of childhood ' are round thee
Like g.irlands in hope's fairy cell.
The happiest hours my soul evrr knew,
In life's brightest sunshine or shade,
Are hours that memory oft brines to my view,
When by thy sweet waters I strayed.
The soft, smiling ripples that steal o'er your
Are like blushes from maiden divine
On your bosom a trembling emotlo-i I've
As you si;:hed at the kiss of the wind.
The sweet gushing music your light waves
In my bosom a happiness wakes
Like blessings from heaven, fall sweet on my
As you murmuring How lo (he lake.
I am far from thee now, and year, have gone !
Since I .frayed on thy white pebbly shore, !
And thought, as I hid you adieu with a sigh,
I mieht crae on thy houin no more,
But in hours of pleasure and mirth,
Wherever mv pathway my be,
I will fondly look back to the homo ot my

91 r. II row ns Mishaps.
We don't know when we have laughed
more heartily than at the following, which
we find in an exchange, under tho cap
tion of "Mr. Brown's Mishaps:"
Mr. Eliphalet Brown was a bachelor
of thirty-five or thereabouts ; one of those
men who seem born to pass through the
world alone ; save this peculiarity, there
wns nothing to distinguish Mr, Brown
from the multitude of other Browns, who
are born, crown up, and die m this world
of ours. It chanced thnt Mr. Brown had
occasion to visit a town some fifty miles
d Mant on matters of business. It wns his
first visit to the place, aud he proposed
slopping n day, iu order to give himself
an opportunity to 'ook about. Walking
leisurely across tho street, he was all at
once accosted by a child, who ran up to
him exclaiming j
Father, I want you to buy mo some
"Father?" Was it possible that ho, a
Whelor, was addressed by this title t
I IIj could not thieve it !
"Who were you speuking to, my dear ?"
inquired he of the liule girl.
"I spoke to you, father," ha id tLe little
"Really," thought Mr. Brown, "this is
very embarrassing." I am not your
father, my dear," he said, "What is
your name V
The child laughed heartily, evidently
thinking it a good joke. "What a funny
father you are." she said, "but ain't you
going to buy me some candy ?"
"Yes, yes; I'll buy you a round, if
you dtiii'l call me father any more," said
The little girl clapped her hands with
delight. The promise was all she re
membered. Mr. B. proceeded to a con-

"Oh, mother, said the llltle girl, "just

much at a time, Mr. Jones," feaid the
lady. "I am afraid bhe will make her

Mrs. Jones tono was defiant, and ihii
only tended to incrcaso Mr. Urown'a em
barrnsMuent. "I linvcn't nny wife, mndanic, I never
had any. On my word as a gentleman,
I never was married." '
"And do yon intend to palm this off
upon me?"' said Mrs. Jones, with cxcilo
nv nt. "If ynu are not married, I should
like to know who I am ?"
"I hnvo no doubt you nrc k most re

conjectured from what you have snid.tliat

inadnme, and always was."
"Melinda," raid her mother, suddenly
tak inur the child by the arm, and lending
her up to Mr. Drown, "Melinda, who is
this gentleman ?"
"Why, that's father," wos the child's
immediate reply, as confidently the placed
her hand in his.
"Ypu hear that, Mr. Jones, do you 1

"You did, did yout Bribe your own
child not to call you father ? Oh, Mr.
Jones ! Do you intoud to desert me, sir,
and leave inn to the cold chariiies of the
world and this is your first step!" ,
Mrs. Jones was so ovcrcomo, that with
out warning she fell back upon the side

ber of persons ran td her assistance.

mered Brown. ,
"Why, it's Mrs. Jones, ain't it H
"Yes", but I ain't Mr. Jones."
"8ir," said the first epcakor, sternly,
"this is no time to iet. I trust you are
not -the rauoe of this excitement which
must have cx-casioncd your wife's fainting
fit. . You had better call a coach and
carry her home directly." .
Poor B own was dumb-founded. "I
wonder," thought he, "whether it is pos
sible that I am really Jones, and have
gi no crazy, in which 1 fancy that
name is Brown. And yd don
that I am Janet. In t-pite of all, I will
iusit that my name is Brown." .
"Well, sir, what are you waiting for t
It is neces.-ary that your wife bhould be
removed. W ill you order a carriage !"
Brown saw it was no use to protract
the discussion by a denial. He therefore
ordered a hackney coach to the spot.
Brown accordingly lent an arm to Mrs.
Jones, who had somewhat recovered, and
was about to close the door upon her.
"What! are you not going with her
"Why, no ; why should I P
"Your wifo should not go alone ; she
has hardly recovered."
Brown gave a despairing glance at the
crowd around him, and deeming it use
less to make opposition where so many
seemed thoroughly convinced that he was

There is no fact more established In
the physiology of man than this, that the
brain expends its energies and itself durw
ng the hours of wakefulness, and that
these are recuperated during sleep; if the
recuperation does not equal the expendi
ture the brain withers this is insanity.
Thus it is that in English history, persons
wno were condemned to death by being
prevented from sleeping, always died ra
ving maniacs. Thus it is, also, that per
sons who are starved to death, beonrne in
sane; tho brain is not nourished, they
cannot sleep. The practical inferences
are these : First, those wbo think moat.
who do most brain work, require most
sleep. Second, that time "saved" from
the necessary sleep is unfavorably destruc
tive to tho mind, body and estate. Third,
give yourself, your servants, give all that
are under you the fullest amount of sleep
uiey wilt uwe, by compelling them to go
to bed at suine regular early hour, and te
rise in the morning the moment thev
awake of themselves, and within a fort
night, nature, with almost the regularity
of the rising sun, will unloose the bonds
of bleep the moment enough has been
procu ed for the wants of the system.
This is the only safe and sufficient rule;
and as to the question how much sleep any
one requires, each must be a rule tot him
sell; that nature will never fail to write
it out to the observer under the regula
tions just given. Journal of Health.
