LOVE'S LAST GRIEF.
BY FINLEY JOHNSON.
Now fare thee well, my own beloved,
Death's stamp is on thy brow,
His hand is plucking from thy cheeks,
The blooming roses now ;
Ahl bitter, bitter is the pang#
Dark fate has left for me,
To know that soon the grave will hide
Thy loving form from me.
Ahl little thought this heart of mine,
In pleasure's golden hours,
That they so soon would fade away,
Like summer's fragile flon ers;
And as I press'dThy vdrvet cheek,
And calmed thy loving fears,
I little thought that 1, so soon,
Should be in grief and tears.
But ah! too soon the spoiler came
And marked thee for hi.s prey,
And where he tou.h'd his withering hand
Soon faded to id-cay;
Thou wert to., fair and beautiful
Within this world too dwell,
And angels now have welcomed thee
Their anthems loud to swdl.
0, when they told this throbbing heart
That thou, nns! had died,
I loathed the cold f.oriiality
Which keptL i me from thy side.
But then I flew on lwIv.'s own wings,
And by thy bediid.e prayed,
And wept to think that they refused
To let nie give thee aid.
Then as I stood convulsed ii, grief,
I wildly o'er thee bent, [pray...,
And prayed and wept, and wept. artl
.Until my breath was ePU1tt;
Then ai I saw tht. robe iin white,
In awe I held my bi eath-
My_ God I my God! I would have dlied
To woo thee back from death.
But fare thee well, my own beloved,
I know that thou art blI.lt,
No earthly woe, ro ,dream qf pain,
Shall haunt thy piea>eful breast.
Thou hast but tl,:d to realms of bliss,
A mansion to prepare,
Where I shall juin thee, .learpct one,
Thy endlle.s joys to l1hare.
MISCELiL ANE0 '
How two loon'seholds BeHcnamei
Mrs. Benoni Benson was fat, fair
and forty-four, when her husband, a
soap-boiler in very good circumstan-
ces, was called from his- life task of
contributing to the general purifica-
tion of mankind. Mrs. Benson
took refuge from her grief in a pret-
ty cottage, situated on the principal
street in the town of G-
At first, she was inconsolable, as
she used to say, with a solemn em-
phasis, which carried conviction to
the hearts of her hearers, that no-
thing but the thoughts of her daugh-
ter Florence would have prevented
her from terminating her existence
by the intervention of poison.
-Mrs. Benson -was in no small
measure indebted to her daughter-
since, in less than three months,"
she threw aside her mourning and,
became as lively as ever.
Touching Florence. she had just
reached the mature age of nineteen,
and began to think herself mar-
riageable. She was quite pretty,
and tolerably well accomplished, so
that her wishes in that respect,
were very soon likely to he fulfilled.
..Just over the way lived Squire
Mirkham, the village lawyer, just
verging n upon fifty, with his sot,
Charles, whio..as about half his
age. Being a yufng man of agree-
able exterior, the matter was quite a
favorite: among tip young ladies in
-.. ..the. neighborhoodanl considered,.
S.common -pn rla quite a 'catch.'

Sly 'quite pretty. Thereupon he cul-
tivated her acquaintance with in-
creased assiduity, and after a while
.asked the fatal question.

tive ; and instead of referring him
dutifully. tloher mother. hinted (be-
4,a romantic young lady) how
chmimingnit'-would be to steal away
to 'the nexttown, an'd get married
wvitbot anybody being the wiser.
Charles Markham caught at this
hint, which chimed with his owr
temperament, and he resolved to
In order that it might be carried
out with perfect success, it was re
solved to seem indifferent to each
other, until the day fixed, in order
to ward off any suspicion which
might otherwise be aroused.
So well were all these arrange-
ments carried out, that Mrs. Ben-
son had no suspicion of what was
Not so with Squire Markham.-
He had obtained a clue to the affair
in some manner, so that he had nwit
only discovered, the fact of the elope-
mont, but even the very day on
which it was to occur.
"Sly dog- that Charles." thought
he to himself, as he sat before the
fire in his dressing-gowi and smo-
king-Oep, leisurely puffing away at
a choice Havana. ;"But I don't won
der at it; lihe only takes after me.-
Still, I owe him something.for keep-
ing it so secretly from me. It
would be a good joke, if I were a
little younger, to cut him out, and
marry her in spite orf him."
Squire Markham, who was one of
those jovial widowers who takes life
as itc',mes, mused more arid more
on this idea, struck out by chance
.as it were, till he really began to
think it worth something.
"After all,'" shouted he, "I am
not so ol.l either- or at least the
ladies say so-and1 they ought to be
go'l jiudies in such matters. .I
have been a bachelor a g oro while
anil ought to have found out before
this how much more comfortable it
woill lbe to have a prttv wife -to
welcome me home, .and s, l0o the hn
ors of my table. a~nd to help me
keep that rascal Charles in order.
Egaid I've half a rinirl-to do it."
Squire Markham took: two more
"I vow 11l do it !"
VWhat this mysterious IT was, we
will leave the reader to infer from
this very next movement. Ringing
the bell, he inquired of the servant:
"Is Charles at home ?"
"No, sir," was the reply, "he went
out this morning and will be gone
'"Hump.! That'll do. So much
the better for my purpose," thought
he, when left alone. "Now I shall
have the. ground left to myself.-
Let me see; the rascal intends run-
ning away next Th'ursday e evening '
and to-day is Monday. Nothing
like striking while the iron is hot.
I'll write to hel- in his name, telling
her that I have altered my mind,
an(. will go just at dark to-morrow
night. She won't'suspect anything
until the knot is tied, and then what
a.laugh we shall have !"
SSquire Markham did not consid-
er that it might make a little differ-
ence with the bride expectant. He
considered it a e;ipital joke on his
son, and looked no further. He ac-
cordingly, drew his writing mate-
rials towards hitif'aid indited the

"Egad !" said Squire Markham.
laughing hartily, "that isn't bad ;
especially about humbugging me.-
Charley entldn't have done it bet-
So saying, he sealed it up and
sent it over by a little Irish boy in
his employment, having first marked
"private" in one corner. "Be care-
ful, Mike, to give it to Miss Benson,
that he wass the wrong person, he
helped her into the carriage and
drove off. Their destination was
the house, of the Justice of the
Peace, residing at the distance of
of some eight miles.
During the first part of the jour-
ney nothing was said. .Both par-
ties were desirous of concealing
s and don't let any one else see it,'
n was the parting injunction.
o Mrs. Benson was sitting in her
quiet parlor, casting her eyes ovei
1 a late number of Harper's Maga
- zine. Florence being absent on a
shopping excursion, sle was lefi
* alone. The ringing of the bel
- brought her to the door. With sur
prise, she saw that the person who
Srang the bell,, was Mike, Squire
Markham's boy of all work.
S "Please, ma'am," said he, holding
out the missive, "a letter for Miss
Benson, an' its very particular that
nobody else should see it."
Tne air of mystery conveyed in
this elchracteristic address, aroused
Mrs. Benson's curiosity, especially
when she observed that it, was ad-
dressed to her daughter, and not to
herself as she first supposed. She
returned ti the parlor-not to yead
Harper's Magazine; that had lost
"What in the world can it be,"
she thought, "that they should be
so secret about it? Can Florence
be carrying on a clandestine corres-
pondence ? It may be something
that I ought to know."
Stimulated b.y her feminine curi-
osity,_ Mrs. Benson speedily conclu.
ded that she would be false to the
responsibilities of a parent if she
did not unravel the mystery.
"I think," said she, "I will open
it, and if it shouldn't be anything
partieilar, I can easily re seal it,
and Florence will still be none the
This she accordingly did. What
was her astonishment when the plan
ofelopement was discovered to her!
"Here's pretty doings !" she ex-
claimed, as soon as she could recov-
er breath. ,"So Florence was going.
to run away and get married to that
Charles Markham, without so much
as hinting a word to me."
She leaned her head upon her
hand and began to consider. She
was naturally led to think of her
own marriage with the late Mr. Ben-
son, and the happiness of her wed-
ded life, and she could not help
heaving a sigh at the recollection.
"Am I always to remain thus
solitary ?" she thought. "I've half
a mind not to show this letter to
Florence, but to run away with
Charley to-morrow night on my own
account. It's odd if I can't per-
:suade him that the mother is as
good as the daughter," and she
glanced complacently at the still at-
tractive face and form reflected from
Just then she heard the door
open, and Florence. entered. She
quickly crumpled up the letter and
thrust it into her pocket.
Florence and Charles did not
meet during the succeeding day;
chiefly -in pursuance of the plan
they had agreed to, in order to avoid
Squire Markham acted in an ex-
ceedingly strange manner, to his
son's thinking. Occasionally he
would burst into a hearty laugh,
which he would endeavor- to repress
and pace up and down the room, as
if to walk off some of his supera-
"What's in theind ?" thought
Charles to himself. "It can't be
that the governor's getting crazy !"
Something was the matter beyond
a doubt. But what it really was,
he had not the faintest conjecture,
At the hour specified, the Squire
had his carriage drawn up at the
appointed rendezvous. He began
to peer anxiously in the dark for

"Oh,'she replied, with an air of

Here the whole school, which had
been listening attentively, broke
out in an uproarious laugh, while
our little hero and heroine blushed

with astonishment. "thought it wa

"No, but I conclude it was you

e '"indeed Squire Markham, yoi
are wrong; the affair coming inci
dentally to mny knowledge, I conclu

der to frustrate her plans."
"Egad! the very idea I had my
self," said the Squire, laughing
"but the fact is, we've both of us
been confoundedly sold, and the mis
chief of it is. I left a letter for
Charles, letting him know it; so
undoubtedly ie wilftake the oppor

I was taken in."

hour, the twain were made one.-

their departure, had themselves put

had the address to convince them thai
it was all a premeditated plan; and
to this day, the younger pair are
ignorant of the plot and counter-

of the two households.

e Thei Silly Dispeansation.
ll. Every young woman who has ar
I- rived at twenty years of age has
s- passed through three dispensations
e -the chaotic, the transitional and
f, the crystalline. 'The chaotic usual
1 ly terminates yith the adoption ol
the long skirt. Then commences
- the process ofcrystalization. This
process may go on feebly for years,
I or it may proceed so rapidly thattwc
years will complete it. In some
, women, it is never completed, incon-
e sequence of a lack of inherent vital
s force, or a criminal disregard of the
requisite conditions. This transit.
- ional dispensation, which, for con-
venience of characterization, I will
; call the silly dispensation, is so full
e ofdangers that it calls for a separate
letter, and this I propose to .write
u now .
- The silly dispensation or stage ol
-. a young woman's life is marked by
- curious symptoms, some of them in-
dicative of disease. As the cutting
- of the natural teeth is usually ac-
; companies by various disorders, so
s the cutting of the spiritual teeth in
- women is very apt tu exhibit its re-
r sults in abnormal manifestations.
o They sometimes eat slate pencils and
- chalk, and some have been known
- to take kindly to broken bits of
- plastering. Others take a literary
turn, and not contentwith anynum-
ber of epistles to female acquaint-
r ances, send in contributions to the
- press, which the friendly and appre-
ciative editor kindly and carefully
returns, or as kindly and carefully
e loses, or fails to receive. Others
still take to shopping and dawdling
r with clerks who havedawningbeards,
. red cheeks and frock coatswit'out-
& se, pockets from which protrude
l white handkerchief-tips. Still others
e yoke themselves in pairs, d(1awn to-
y gehcr by sympathetic attraction;
and by community of mental exer-
- cise on the subject of beaux. You
shall see them walking through the
- streets, locked arm in arm, plunging
t into the most charming confidences,
- or if you happen to sleep in the
r house with them, you shall hear
t them talking in their chamber until
I at midnight, the monotonous hum-of
their voices has soothed you into
sleep; and the same voices, with the
same unbrokeph bum, shall greet
f your ears in the morning. Others
take to solitude and long curls.
i They' walk with their eyes down,
- murmuring to themselves, with the
impression that everybody is look-
t ing at them.
I If a young woman be safely car-
ried through this dispensation, the
great step of life will have been
i gained. This is the era of hasty
marriages, deathless attachments,
which last until they are superse-
ded, and deliberately formed deter-
minations to live a maiden life, which
endure until the reception of an offer
of marriage. If during this period,
a young woman be at home, engag-
ed more or less in the duties of the
household, or, if she be engaged in
studywith the healthful restraints
and stimulus of general society
about her it is very well for her. If
she finds herself possessed with un-
accountable proclivities to a mineral
diet, or a foggy out reaching for
some thing or other that manifests
itself in profound confidence with
one similarly afflicted, or any one of
a hundred absorbing sentimental-
isms. let her remember that she is
mentally and morally sick, and that
for her own comfort and peace she
should seek at once for a remedy.
Her only safety is in seeking direct
contact with a healthier and more ad-
vanced life, and by securing health-
ful wpeupation for all her powers, in-
tellectual and physical. Dreams,

west of England a distinguished
judge who was also an enthusiastic
geologist, and who was in the habit
of chipping out specimens of miner-

in his walks. An honest farmer,

found him seated by the roadside
on a heap of stones, which he was

Now, in England the employment
usually allotted to paupers is thatof

OUR DAUGHTERS.-The. great-
est danger to our daughters in the
present time, is the neglect of do-
mestic education. Not only to them-
selves, but to husbands, families,
and the community at large, does
the evil extend. By far the great-
est amount of happiness in civilized
life is found in the domestic culture
and habits of the wife and mother.
Let our daughters be intellectually
educated as highly as possible ; let
their moral 'and social nature re-
ceive the highest graces, of vigor
and refinement; hut-E alIng with
these, let the domestic virtues find

We cannot say much about ,ur
daughters being wives and mothers,
but ouglit to think much of it, and
give the'thought prominence in' all
our plans for their education. Good -
wives they cannot be, at least for
men of intelligence, without mental.-
culture; good mothers they certain-
ly cannot be without it; arid more
than this, -they cannot be such wives
'as -men need, unless' they are good
housekeepers-withaut a thorough
and practical training to that end.
Our-daughters should be practically
taught to bake, wash, sweep, cook,
set table, and do everything apper-

to the Jail House, to insure the safe

Not the least important part of the
system is the road which is to 'pass
