jikidiciiLJIkyaitmcut. We are growing old—how the thought will rise, When a glance is backward cast On some long remembered spot lhat lies In the silence of the past; It may be the shrine of our earthly vows. Or the tomb of our early tears; Bat it seems like a far-off isle lo us, In the stormy sea of years. Oh! wide and wild are the waves that par! Our steps from ils greenness now, And we miss the joy of many a heart, . * And the Jight of many a brow; For deep o'er many a stately bark Have the whelming billows rolled. Thai steered with us from that early mark, Oh! friends, we are growing old ! Old in the dimness anil the dust Of our daily toils and cares; Old in Ihe wrecks of love and trust Which our bunhened memory bears ; y, Each form may wear, to the passing gaze, ¦ The bloom of life's freshness yet, And beams may brighten our latter days, \Vhich die morning never met. We Are Growing Old But oh! the changes we have seen . In the far and winding war—The graves in otir pa...

The Midnight Assassin. I was on my way lo P , in the fall of IS—¦ ; it was towards the cold evenings in the first fall month, when my horse stopped suddenl y before a respectable house about four miles from N . There was something strange and remarkable in this action of tny horse, nor would he move a step in spite of all my exertions to move him on. I determined, to gratify this whim, and at the same time a strange presentment which came over ine, a kind of supernatural indescribable, feeling seemed to urge me to enter. Having knocked and requested to be conducted to the lady or gentleman of the house, I was ushered into a neat sittingroom, where sat n beautiful girl of about twenty years of uge. She rose at my entrance, and seemed a little surprised at the uppeaiauce of a perfect stranger. In a few words I related to her the strange conduct of my horse, nnd his stubborn opposition to my mind. "I am not,'" I observed, '•superstitious, nor inclined on the side of the metaphysi...

.miscellaneous Selections The Little Match-Girl. A New Year Story. It was so terribly cold. It snowed,-and the evening began to be dark ; it was also the last evening in the year—New Year's Eve. On this cold, dark evening, a poor little girl went into the street with bare head and naked feel. It is true, she had shoes on'when she went from home, but of what use were they ? They were very large shoes; her mother had lost worn them ; they were too large; and the little one lost them in hurrying over the street, as two carriages passed quickl y by. One shoe was not to be found, and the other a boy ran away with, saying he could use it (or a cradle when he hudCchildren himself. The little girl now went on her smnll naked feet, which were red and blue with cold—she carried a number of matches in her old apron, and held the bundle in her hand. No one had bought of her the whole day ; no one had g iven her a farthing. Poor thing ! She was hungry and benumbed with cold,and looked so...

The Latest from the Gold Region. The New York Herald has a letter dated? Mnzailnn, December 'iOlh, received from California by way of Mexico, from which we ' make the following extracts :—v The Inst dates from California, arrived here b y the schr. Buro .are equally flattering ' in relation to the gold region. The wash' ings had censed, owing to ihe cold weather, and the whole region was covered afoot deep with snow. Some parlies had built log-;' cabins, and intended to- pass the winter on1 the spot. The richness of the placer, as well as the' extent, far surpasses any account yet pub-' lished of it—gold being found nearly a nun-' , dred miles South of the original discovery.
