jv".' 'i Uri .1 1 1 :.•• "A Good Little Creature." Cincinnati Enqirer. Mrs. Jameson numbered among her friends the Brownings, Joanna Baillie, Miss Martineau, Carlyle, Ottilie Von Goethe, our own Irving, Miss Sedgwick, with whom she was in the strongest sym­ pathy, Barry Cornwall, Thackery and Schlegel, and the life of her, just Issued, is enriched with many of the letters and notes which passed between them and herself. Two or three passages with ref­ erence to Queen Victoria's coronation and first years as Queen, have special interest as a revelation both of the Queen's char­ acter when she iirst came to the throne, and of the tenderness, half pity, hall affection, with which her subjects re­ garded the young sovereign. Writing of the coronation, in a letter to Miss Sedg­ wick, Mrs. Jameson said: As to the Queen, poor child, she went through her part beautifully, and when she returned, looking pale and tremulous even Carlyle", who was standing near me, uttered with emotion a blessi...

Words of Wisdom. The great man is he who does not lose his child's heart. No one is more profoundly sad than he who laughs too much. It is a fool who praises himself, and a madman who speaks ill of himself. To be dumb for the remainder of life is better than to speak falsely. A river is the most sensitive of things —It runs away from even its own source Ill-gotten gains are never worth the Jirice, and a good conscience never costs what it is worth. All is hollow where the heart bears not a part, and all is in peril where principle is not the guide. Nature has sown in man seeds of knowledge, but they must be cultivated to produce fruit. Clouds are the vail behind which the face of day coquettisbly hides itself, to enchance its beauty. Secret kindnesses done to mankind are as beautiful as secret injuries are detesta­ ble. To be invisibly good is godlike, as to be invisibly evil is diabolical. There is not a stream of trouble so deep and swift-running that we may not cross safely over ...

A Balaklava Hero. From the New York ExprMS. Among the group seated' around the fire which blamed brightly in the office of the Continental hotel, at Saratoga, on an intensely cold day last week, was George Aldridge, who was in the famous charge of the Sis hundred at Balaklava, which Tennyson has celebrated in deathless verse. Aldridge is a tall, powerful, jovial looking Englishman, who, though at least fifty years cf age, stands time's attacks so well that he scarcely looks more than forty. There is not the slightest trace of bravado about the man who saw sixteen years of service in the British army, and bears the honorable scars of many a well fought field, but he has the natural pride of an old soldier, and will occas­ ionally ''fight his battles o'er again." So, in answer to some questions, he said: "There were not exactly six hundred in the Light Brigade, but six hundred and forty altogether, in detachments taken from the Eighth and Eleventh hussars. Seventeenth lancers, and the...

After the Keyival. REV. ALEX. It. JACK' There is a bible in. England bound in solid gold. Its pages are the finest pirchmcnt, its margins are illuminated with rare and curious workmanship. It is a costly relic, the property of the British Sovereign, kept under lock and key, and guarded with untiring care. Yet, after all, it is only a dead thing, penned by the hand of some old monk, painted by the finger of some cloistered nun. There it lies entombed in its grave of glass in itself it has no life, neither can it give life to others. It is not for a moment to be compared with the hum­ blest Christian who lives or lodges in some lowly cottage, and who is not a dead but a living bible. Pearls of the East, diamonds of the sea, are on the buards of that bible what are these to the ornaments of a meek and quiet spirit? What, that dead parchment to a deathless soul and a heart instinct with life? What, that ink fading and rusting be­ neath the eye of Time to the blood in which the Spirit di...

My little love, asleep so far, bo far Beyond the hills I cannot croos nor climb, Forgetting where the bees and wild birds are, And minding not the running river's rhyme— I pray you, in the silence grown sweet And full of heaven—since having you to hold,— Dream that the wind hath kissed for your feet, Blown from my heart with blessings mani­ fold. II. The palms are proud above me! and I go, Singing across the laughter-loving land, Yet saying, sometimes, with my voice drop, ped low "If only she could wake and understand!"

I think you stand, this moment, warm and sweet, And reaching dimpled fingers as of ...
