An Hour at the Old Play around.
t sat an hour tc-dsy, John,
DeilJe the old brook stream
Where w were school boya In olden time'
When manhood waa a dream
The brook Is choaked with fallen leaves,
The pond is dried away t
I scarce believe you would know
The dear old place to-day.
The school-house Is no more, John,
Beneath our locust trees t
The wild-rose by the window aids
No more waves In the breeze.
The scattered stones look desolate
The sod they rested on
Has been ploughed by strangei hands
Since you and I were gone.
The chestnut tree Is dead, John,
And what is sadder now,
The broken grape-vine of Our awing
Hang on the withered bough.
I read eur names upon the bark,
And found the pebbles rare,
Laid up beneath the hollow side,
Just as we piled them there.
Beneath the grass-grown bank, John,
I looked for our old spring,
That bubbled down the alder path,
Three paces from the swing.
The rushes grow upon the brink,
The pool is bleak and bare,
And not a foot this many a day,
It items has trodden there.
I took the old blind road, John,
That wandered up the bill, ,
'Tis darker than It used to be,
And seems so lone and still
The bird sing yet among the boughs,
Where once the sweet grap hung,
But not a voice of human kind,
Where all our voices rung.
I sat me down on the fence, John,
That lie as in olden time.
The same half-panel In the path,
We used so oft to elimb
I thought bow o'er the cares of life, .
O-it play-mates had passed on,
And left me counting on this spot,
The faces that are gone.

Of all amusements for the mind,
From logic down to fi hlng,
There isn't one that you can find
So very cheap as " wishing I"
A very choice diversion, teo,
If we but rightly ttie it,
And not, as we are apt to do,
Pervert It and abuse it.
I wish a common wish indeed
- My purs was sometimes fatter,
That I might cheer the child of need
And not my pride to flatter f
That I might make oppression reel,
As only gold can make it, . ,
And break the tyrant' rod of teel,
A only gold can break It I
I wish that Sympathy and Lev,
And every human passion '
That has its origin above,
. Would come, and keep in fashion
That Scorn, and Jealouslj, and Hate,
And every base emotior,
Were buried Arty-fathoms deep
Beneath the waves of ocean!
I wish that friends were always true,
And motive always pur,
I wish the good were not so few,
I wish the bad were fewer ;
I wish that parsons ne'er forgot
To heed their pious teaching j
I wish that practicing was not
So different from preaching.
I wish that modest worth might be
Appraised with truth and candor
I wish that innocence was free
From treachery and slander j
I wish that men their vow would mind
That women ne'er wer rovers
I wish that wive were always kind,
And husband always lover 1
I wish In fine that joy and mirth,
. And every good Ideal,
May eome, erewhile, throughout tb earth,
To be the gloriou Real
Till God aha'l every creature bless
With bis suprerngst blessing,
And hop be lost in happiness,
And wishing W possessing I

An OTerwIititnlni Speech bjr a
The Hon. George N. Brigg-s, ex-Gov-
crnur uf MMchusctu, delivered & tem
perance aJilresi some time since, in the
course of which he related the following
anecdote with thrilling effect:
Mr. Briggs said this question cf the
introduction of intoxicating drinks asaum.
ed somewhat of a practical form last
Spring in a thriving borough in PennsyU
vania. The inhabitants had assembled,
as was their usual custom, to decide what
number, if any, of licenses the town
should petition from the County Court,
from whence they were issued. There
was a full attendance. One of the moat
respectable magistrates of the borough
prtbided, nnd upon the platform were
seated) among others, the clergyman of
the village, one of his deacons, and the
..i r ...!T-i .n.,n.l,l.. riii.
A tt u
Uie meeting dou been caueu ioi
zens of the boruuurt rose, and oner a
short speech, moved that the meeting pe
tition for the usual number of licenses.
They had better license good men and
let them sell. Tho proposition secin?d to
meet with almost universal favor. It was
an excellent wny to get along quietly,
and one and then another in their turn
expressed their hope that such a course
would be adopted.
The President was about to put the
question to th? meeting, when an object
roso in a distant part of the building, and
all eyes were instantly turned in that di
rection. It was an old woman, poorly
clad, and whose careworn countenance
was the painful index of do light ufler
ing. And yet there was something in
the flash of the bright eye that told she
had once beeu what she was not. She
addressed the President, and said, with
his permissi m, she wished to say a few
words to the meeting. She had come be
cause ane had heard that they were to
decide the license question.
"You," said she "all know who I am.
You once knew me the mistress of one
of the best estates in the borough. I once
had a husband and fire sons; and woman
never had a kinder husband mother
never had five better or more affectionate
sons. But where are they now ? Doc
tor, I ask where are they now ? In yon
der burying ground there are six graves
tilled by that husband and those five sons,
and oh! they are all drunkards' graves.
Doctor, how came they to be drunkard t
You would come and drink with them,
and you to'd told them that temperate
drinking would do them good. And you
loo, Sir, addreasing the clergyman, wo'd
come and drink with my hu.baud ; and
my sons tho'l they migLt drink with safe
ty, because they saw you drink. Deacon,
you sold them rum which made them
drunkards. You have got my farm and
all my property, and you got it by ruin.
And now," eh said, "I have done my er
rand. I go back to the poor-house, for
that is my home. You, reverend Sir,
you, Doctor, and you, Deacon, I aim!)
never meet again, until I meet you at the
bar of God, where you too will meet my
ruined aud lost huaband and those five
sous, who, thro your means and iufluence,
fill the drunkard graves."
The old woman sat down. Perfect si
lence prevailed, until broken by the Presi
dent, who ro to put the question to the
meeting shall we petitiou the court to
issue licenses to this borough the ensuing
year? and then one unbroken ."No !"

with a never ceasing wonder at the splen-

steps forth from his chamber and treads
with delight upon the freshened earth.
The early breezes salute his keen senses

CaLiroaiiiA Justice. In the palmy
days of the California fever, one Charley
McCabe was Alrade of the county of
Sau Francisco. He was a jovial fellow,
and in his decisions spared neither friend
nor foe. Dick Robinson, a friend of
Charley's onco while on a spree, had the
audacity to cut oil' a Chinamau's tail close
to die head, for the which he was called
up before McCabe to answer for damages.
After hearing the complaint of John
Chinaman and Dick's defense, our A!
cade give his decision that the latter
should puy a 'slug" ($50) fine; the
which Dick did. The Chinaman's eyes
flashed with grateful satisfaction as he
held out his hand for the eight cornered
gold piece. But that was not Charley'
purpose, for putting the "slug" in his
vest, pocket and motioning John away
with his ha ud, he replied t
No ! no ! John, that's for the law T
The Chinaman's countenance fell as
ha walked out of the court-room, not un
derstanding the justice of California.
The " court" adjourned and invested the
fine in a champagne supper JV. Y. Lta-
