On Wednesday evening last, 7th, re sidents in the vicinity of the Windsor rail way station were alarmed to hear a loud report from the diirection of the railway station, and somewhat similar to that caused by the explosion of an engine boiler. In less than five minutes the ap proaches to the station and the level crossing at Union-street gates were alive with men, women, and children, some of 1 whom were hatless and only hastily at- 1 tired. The cause of the excitement, however, seemed not to be so serious as at first anticipated. The 0.5 p.m. up train from.Windsor had just moved.out some tiventy yards from the station when the connecting rod of the engine gave way, and the train came to a standstill. At the same time the engine gave forth a loud report. The train was crowded, and the passengers soon showed signs of ex citement. Windows and doors were thrown open, and in a few seconds the whole of th...

A iuhnchl of Il7ito Flolives. In passing through a clover field 1 call a nosegay, Vwild and swocet, Of flowers, wind sown, at my feet Blooming among thebo meadow grass, They nestle timid as I pass Bunt gay as any lawn could yield.

In passing through this life of ours \Vo find our dullest claysnalight With blessings hiddon lhalE from sight, Among the weeds of toil and strife Are loving deeds that brighton life Scattered along our path like Ilowers. -Ndllie Chase.

They were a handsome couple, Hle was a manly lad, And she was a winsome maiden, Sweetly.tempered,-bright and glad. As they sat in the cottage parlor, The little maiden wrought So busily at her 'broidery frame " To needlessl'," he thought. For, 0, hlie wished to talk to her, To speak a tender word That rang and echoed through his heart; But, shy as any biird. She flew away if he but looked Too ardently his love. What could he do, wlhat could he say, Her shyness to remove ? And so he silent sat and looked At her with wistful eyes; But it she noticed it at all, One only could surmise. But suddenly she turned to him "P'lease hold this tangledl skein-. I'm out of blue." I went away When I came in again. The...
