The Lady's Repentance.— Ia the life of Dr. Ruffles, jasfc published, tbe followiug story was told in connection with a preaching journey in 1814. On our way from Wem to Hawkestone w6 passed a house, of which Mr. Leo told me the following occurrences : 'A young lady, the daughter of the owner of the house, was addressed by a man, who, though agreeable to her, was disliked by her father. Of course he would not consent to their union, and she determined to elope. The night was fixed, the hour came, he placed the ladder to the window, and in a few miuutes she was in his arms. They mounted a double horse, and were seen at some distance from tbe house. After a while the _Jady broke silence by saying : 'Well, - you see what a proof I have given you of my affection ; I hope you will make me a good husband.' He was a surly fellow, and gruffly answered : 'Perhaps I may, and perhaps not/ She made him no reply, bat, after a silence of some minutes, she suddenly exclaimed : 'O, what shall we...

A Little Lesson! for Well'Disposed ¦ Wives. "Why is it," asked a lady, "that so many men are, anxious to get rid of their wives?" , "Because," was the reply, "so few women exert themselves after marriage to make their presence indispensable to the happiness of their husbands !" When husband and wife have become th _j Orpughly accustomed to " each other—when hl\ the little * battery of charms which both played off so skillfully before the. wedding-day has been exhausted—too'many seem to think thai nothing remains ' but the clanking of the legal chains which bind them to each other. The wife seeks to ydevelo'p in her'affection no new attraction for her husband : and the latter, perceiving the lapsus, begins to b_£O_,od over an uncbugenialityjwhich does notT exist, _.and _^ to magnify, the ills, that do exist into insurpassable _^ obstacles in the way of his earthlyi felicity.:, This is the true secret.

Across the fields the shadows creep, And up the misty bill, And.we our twilight vigils keep At our owu cottage'sill. The distant brooklet murmurs come, Like bell notes through the leaves; And many _ao insects mazy hum Its dreamy music weaves. The dove's last note, in rippling beats, Upon tbe air departs ; The breath of all our garden sweets Is creeping to our hearts. The russet woodbine round our porch, In clustering ringlets twines; The honeysuckle's crimson torch Gleams through the dusty vines ; The sunset rays are trembling now Amid the trellis-bars—They paint upou my darlings brow A glory like the stars. Her cheek is,nestling on my breast, Her eyes are bright with tears ; A prayer, half-baeathed and half-represt; My listening spirit hear8 Oh ! blessed by the changeless love That glorifies my life ! All doubt, all fear, all guile above—M...

... Fifteen Great Mistakes.—It. 13 a great mistake to set up our own standard of right and of wrong, and judge people accordingly. It is a great mis take to measure the enjoyments of others by our.own ; to espect uniformity of opinion in this world ; to look for judgement and experience in youth; to endeavorto mould all dispositions alike ; not to yield in immaterial trifles; to look for perfection in pur actions ; to worry ourselves and, others with what cannot be remedied ;.not ;to alleviate all that needs alleviation-as, far as lies in our power; not.to make allowances for the infirmities of others ; to consider everythiDgimpossible which we cannot perform ; to believe, only what our finite minds can grasp; to expect to be able to understand. everything. The greatest of all mistakes, is to live only for Time, and that when any moment may launch us into Eternity.

A Cube, foe Jealousy.—A jealous man who was on a visit to London, was induced to call on,a clairvoyant to ascertain what hie wife was doing at: her residence, some ninety miles' ' away. "She is sitting in her parlor," said the lady, "and she looks out of the window, as if in expectation," "Strange," said the gentleman, "who can she expect?" "Some one enters the door! she seizes him and caresses him fondly." "Horrible !"' interrupted the gentleman, thinking of the Divorce Court. "Now he lays his head in her lap, and looks tenderly into-her eyes." "Dreadful! she shall suffer for tins." "Now lie wac;s his. tail !" and as this explained the story, old jealousy decamped, and resolved not to ba inquisitive again in regard to his wife.

Madame was upon.her knees on the platform, one morning, devoutly conducting the devotions of her hundred pupils, when in the distauce was heard the crash of the devoted vessel. There was a pause in the prayer, and these words audibly interluded by the oblivious speaker. "Good gracious if there isn't another of my cocoanut dipoers gone !" and the prayer went on.
