BT ELLA SNOW.
Brightly falls the sunshine.
O'er this glorious earth,
Everywhere 'tis dancing,
As In joyous mirth.
Twinkling on the frost-worit,
Hanging high and low,
Sparkling bright as diamonds
On the pearly snow.
Gleaming on the dark clouds,
Till they fleecy grow,
Floating through the havens,
Like a drift of snow.
See it in the evening,
As It sink to rest,
Painting golden billowa
O'er the crimson west.
In the 44 upper deep,"
Tremblingly 'tis falling
On the earth to sleep.
All arouud us shaking
Wavy tresses bright,
In our hearts is sinking
Its smile of golden light.
Gl-nclng In the brooklets,
As they onward flow,
Till their dimpled wavelets
Bright as amber glow.
Mirrored In the rain-drop,
Its many glorious dies
Weave a gilded archway,
And paint it on the skies.
Teeplng through my window,
On this wintry day,
Its merry smiles and kisses,
Drive the 44 blues " away.
In my heart lis glimpsing,
With Its eyes so bright,
Chasing oft" the shadows,
And leaving tracks of light.
'Tit Home where'er the Heart Is.
'Tis home where'er the heart is;
Wl ere'er its loved ones dwell,
In cities or in cottages,
Thronged haunts, or mossy dell :
The heart's a rover ever,
And thus on wave and wild,
The maiden with her lover walks,
The mother with her child.
'Tit bright where'er the heart is ;
Its fairy spells can bring
Fresh fountains to the wilderness,
And to the desert spring.
There are green isles In each ocean,
O'er which affection glides ;
And a haven on each rugged shore
When love's the star that guides.
'Tis free where'er the heart is;
Nor chain nor dungeon dim,
May check the mind'a aspirings,
The spirits psaling hymn I
The heart gives life its beauty,
Its glory and Its power
'Tie sunlight, to itt ripling ttream,
And soft dew to Its flower.
A Little Satire, with a Founda
tion. The little altercations and grudges be
tween cbi'dren are oftentimes the best
satires upon the quarrels and feuds of
grown-up people. The attention of a
polmeroan was called to rather a novel
nd amusing cast recently.' It appears
that Tommy Hines (eight years of age)
became enamored of a monstrous large
marble, in the possession of Freddie Jones,
(a ruddy-faced, smart little chap of six
summers,) and, in proportion as his ad
miration for it increased, his liking for
his own pocketful of "common trash" di
minished. At length, after having tho't
a vast deal about it during school-hours,
Tommy went to Freddie as soon as school
was over, and offered to swap all his own
marbles for that which to him appeared
like a "pearl of greal price." The bargain
was closed at once by the astonished Fred,
die, and Tommy counted out to him 43
common marbles and 2 "alleys," without
a pong, in exchange for the big "bull's
eye." The two boys parted, profoundly
gratified with the trade. Freddie hurried
home, with both hands in his pockets, full
of marbles of all ize, to gratify his pa.
rents with what he had done. Tommy,
upon his pert, looked at his great, big,
monstrous marble a thousand times at
first, as fondly as a newly-married man
upon a bride, whose beauty is her only
recommendation, and every succeeding
ume with less and less enthusiavn.until en
tirely palled by possession, he put it under
his pillow at night somewhat discontented.
ly.and fell asleep in radier had humor. In
the uuroing. the charm of tho "bull's
ey," ! fa.a'jiiHtinj the day lef-we, had
entirely departed. Tommy threw it down
from the bed in disgust, and wept for the
loss of his 43 marble and 2 "alleys,"
and would not be comforted.
He was becoming misanthropic and
tired ef life, when a ray of hope was
communicated to him by hit affectionate
prandfather. Evidently regarding little
Freddie aa a big hoy who had tnk.cn ad.
vantage of a smaller ono, the old gentle
man told Tummy thnt ho ought not to sub
mit to such sharp practice, but iniiated
upon hnving ihe "trado cancelled" and
the marbles reHtored. Encouraged by
this counsel, his grandson dried his eyes,
and was enabled to "punish" a pretty
considerable pile of finpjncksnt brenkfart ;
but he had no sooner finished these end
six or aeveii slices of milk toast, than out
he hastened into the street to have a very
resolute interview with Freddie Jones.
He had but to whistle in the key-hole of
hit house to bring him out. Conscious
that, under the shelter of his own door,
Freddie could not be bullied into conses
sion, Tommy skilfully attracted him away
a khort distance from the parental man
sion, and then holding out the bull's eye
with one hand and collaring him with the
other, demanded the restoration of his
pocketful of marbles. Freddie indignant
ly refused, and reminded his unjust play
mate of the solemn ratification which had
attended the exchange, viz., in the words,
mutually uttered :
Chip, chop, chain,
Give a thing, never ta'.e It back again.
Tommy repudiated that vow as inform.
nl,and declared to Freddie that he would
pound him unless he complied tvi.h his
demand. Whereupon the latter broke
away from him, and ran towards home
as fast as his little legs could carry him ,
but he was overhauled by the other near
the Hines Mansion, and a game ef futi
cufTs ensued. Freddie would have held
his own pretty well, but the progenitors
of young Hines called a policeman, who
happened to be passing to interfere, and
mediate for a settlement of the matter in
dispute. Freddie Jones insisted, with a
few iudignunt tears in his eyes, that ' a
bargain was a bargain the world over, and
and he bhould keen the marbles anyhow.
The policeman, who is a jut man, found J
his position as an arbitrator in this case a
very delicate one, and declined to inter
fere. Then the parents of'tho two boys
got to loggernenus aoout u ; scoiaing eacu
other very heartily lhe upshot of it
was, that tho Hineses threaten the Jones
es with an action of replevin, and we
shall not bo surprised if the cac should
come before the court. Botlon Transcript.

in my line to be taken with the shakes
j couldn't look at one long enough; Well,
my sister Lib gave a party one night, and
I stayed swayed from home because I
was too bashful to face the music. I hung
around the house whistling "Old Dan
Tucker," dancing to keep my feet warm,
watching the heads bobbing up and down
behind the window curtains, and wishing
the thundering party would break up, so
I could get to my room. I smo'ed up a
bunch of cigars, and as it wss getting
late and mighty uncomfortable, I conclu.
eluded lo shin up the door post. No soon
er said thim done, and I soon found my
self in bed. "Now," ssys I, "let her

ently, oh! mortal buttons! I heard a still
small voice, very much like sister Lib's,
end it said: "Jack, you'll have to get up,
for all the girls' things are in there !"
Oh. Lord, what a Dickie! Think of me
in bed, all covered with shawls, muffs,
bjnnets and cloaks, and twenty girla out

stopped to think I should have pancaked
on the spot. As it wax, 1 rolled out
among the bonnet-wiro and ribbons in a
hurry. "Smash!" went the millinery in
every direction. I hud to dress in tho
dark for there wns a crack in tho door,
and tho girls will peek and tho way 1
fumbled about was duuth on straw huts.
The critical moment came. 1 opened the
door, and found myself right among the
women. "Oh, my Leghorn !" crios ono.
"My dear, darling, winter velvet!" cries
another, and they pitched in they pulled
me this way and tha", boxed my ears;
and one bright-eyed little piece Sal
her name was put her arms right around
my neck, and kissed me right on my lips.
Human natare couldn't stand that, and 1
give her as good as she sent. It was the
first time I ever got a taUe, and it was
powerful good. 1 believe I could have
kissed that gnl from Julius Cirsar lo tho
Fourth of July. "Jack," said she, "wo
are sorry to disturb you, but won't you
see mo home ?" "Yes," said I, "I will."
I did do it, and had another smack at the
gate loo. After that, we took a kinder
turtle-doving after each other, both of us
sighing like a barrel of new cider when
we were away from each other.

Mr. I.overlng's Mode of Making
usjar from tha Chits? Cea.
It will bo remembered that iht most
perfect specimens of sugar manufactured
from the Chinese cane presented for ts
aiuination at the late Convention at
Springfield, were awarded to Mr. Jesepa
S. Covering, or riuladelphia. In the
accompanying letter to Mr. Francis, Mr.
Lovenng states that a pamphlet descri
bing his mode of manufacture would be ,
shortly ready for distribution. Thst has
Mince been issued, and the following are
the writer's conclusions : '
1. That it is obvious that there isa eul- "
initiating point iu the development of tha :
sugar in the cane, which is the best time .
for sugar making. This point, or season '
I consider to be when moat if not all the '
seeds are ripe, and after several frosts, '
say when the temperature falls to 25 er '
30 Farenheit. , f
2. That frosts, or even hard freezing,
does not injure the juice or the sugar, hut
that warm Indian summer weather, after '
the frost and hard freezing, does injur 1
them very materially, and reduces both .
the quantity and quality.
3. Thnt if the cane is cut and housed,
or shocked in the field when in its most
favorable condition, it will probably keep
unchanged for a longtime. ' '
4. That when the juice is obtained, lha .
process should proceed cautiously and .,
6. That the clarification should be as '
perfect as possible, by the time the dtasi.
ty reaches 15 degrees when the syrup
will have the appearance of good brandy.
6. That although eggs were used in
those small experiments, on account of '.
their convenience, bullock's blood, if to
had, is equally as good, and the milk of
lime alone w 11 answer the purpose in w
the latter case, however, more constant and
prolonged skimming will be required to "
produce a perfect clarification, which ia E
highly important. . u i
7, That the concentration, or boiliof i
down, after clarification, should be as ra ;
fud as possible without scorching hal
ow evaporations being the best. "
'With these conditions secured, h Is
about as eaiy to make good sugar from '
the sugar cane as to make a pot of mush, ;
and mu?h easier than lo make a kettle of
good apple butler. ,
DlSCIPLINC OK BOASO A MaM- ,
Was. An officer of the United States .
frigate Congress, which has just returned
from a cruise of two and a half years, ,;
during which she has ssiled 23,000,
miles, writes to the Journal of Commtre
as follows s
"The new mode of disdolmo without .
fiWsinir. is Droducincr a renul an1 A',AA
u a a ' g o -. l
change in the character of seaman; and ;
ui almost every particular the change ia :
of the most desirable nature. There is, '
perhaps, lest promptness and anermr in
the movements of some who formrlv
jumped to the ropes from fear of the '
-cats, ana mat clan or reckless, bold '
and dare-devil sDirits. who tmmmmd. in
their native element only when the storm
was nignest and howled through the ng .
ging with most terrific violence, is to soma '
extent, passing away. But there is risinr
in its place a self-respect and intelligent 1
manliness, a reliable fidelity, a sympathy
with their fellow men. and a daairet for .
their regard, which is full of promise-
j -t a
uonsiuering ine grade of society from
which seamen ordinarily come, and the
motives which lead the great majority la
seek the service, it is surprising that the
improvement in their character should '
have been as great as those most experi
enced declare it to be."
Four men were arrested last week; in
