A CONTENTED OLD BACHELOR. AN ANIMALISTIC ODE. I am three score and ten, and am hearty and hale, Never walk with a staff, am as straight as a rail; I'm a bachelor, too, which is better than all, And a snug, cozyplace is my Bachelor's Hall. The Benedicts tell me I ought to have wed Ere old Father Time set his mark on my head; But I slyly retort, "there are few married men Have as little to growl at at three score and ten." I sleep in the morning as long as I please, Then slippered and wrapped I breakfast at ease; No madam to pout as she pours out my tea, Or hint at late rising while glancing at me; I dine at tho club or at home, as best suits, And then I take a snoozo on the lounge "in my boots," A piece of assurance that few married men Are prone to indulge in at three score and ten. In my snug little parlor a choice cup of tea At evening exhales its rich fragrance for me; The nectar I sip in a well-cushioned chair, Nor envy the married their joys or their care. I wheel to the fire, ...

LETTERS FROM THE OLD WORLD. by miss jennie a. nelson. Dehra Doon, Northern India, 1 May 2, 1872. j The weather here is now almost as hot as our July, but at night we have such a delightful breeze from the mountains that we can sleep very well. Since the hot days have come, we get up at 4J o'clock, commence School at 6, and get through at 11 A. M., when we have our breakfast, and then I make the children go to bed and sleep two hours. I forgot to say that at 8J we have recess, and oar "Chota-Hagri,'' or little breakfast. I have the charge of the whole School now, and it requires much firmness to hold 91 of these Indians, but I get on very well. To-day I had to show them off" a little to some officers of the Government, who are visiting the Schools. One of the gentlemen was a nephew of Lord Lawrence, so I was told. One was a Colonel of a Native Regiment who are the guardians of the Doon. They are a noble set of men, who were true and loyal during the Mutiny. In my next I will give you...

The Printer's Devil. BY TIP 0. QUAD. Ink-bespattered, Clothing tattered, With his broom in hand, Leaning, cleaning, Rubbing, scrubbing, Under every stand. 'Neath the cases, Type and spaces— Trampled where they fell- By this Pluto Doomed to go to Printer's leather "hell." Running hither Darting thither, Tail of all the staff. Out and in doors, Doing all chores, Bringing telegraph. Runs for copy, Nor dare stop he For his paper hat; All tho jour'men, Save the foreman, Yelling for some "phat." Proves the galleys; Then he sallies On Satanic pinion, From the news-room To the sanctum— Part of his dominion. And the bosses Often cross as Bears within their holes- Make the devil Find his level Stirring up the coals. Washing roller, Bringing coal or Lugging water-pail; Time he wastes not At the paste-pot, Wrapping up the mail. When the week's done, Then he seeks one Where the greenbacks lay, There to settle For the little Devil is to pay. In this spirit. There is merit, Far from tho taint of s...
