I "was very serious all day, and on sending ber to her little couch, I said; _ "Now, my daughter, to punish you, and to show you how very naughty you have been, I shall not kiss you to-night." She stood looking at me, astonishment personified, with her great mournful eyes wide open. I suppose she had forgotten her misconduct till then, and I left ber with the big tears trickling down her cbeekp, and her lips quivering. Presently I was sent for.

Now came the struggle between love and what I falsely termed duty. "Mother can't kiss you, Ellen," I whis pered, though every word ctoked me.

A Word about Umbrellas. The umbreha is a great invention?great for utility, and great for learning folks to steal and think the act one of honesty. Where did the umbrella come from? Who first made it ? We can throw a ray or two of light on the subject. It is generally supposed that this article is of Christian invention, and not yet two centuries old. Jonas Hanaway, who, about the middle of the last century, flourished one in the streets of London, was not the first man, however, that hoisted an um brella, by a long shot?say 3,500 years or so. Instead of Jonas being the fiist man that walked under a hollow hemisphere of silk or cotton, the probability is that his illustrious predecessor, the prophet Jonah, sported one of them in the streets of old Nineveh; for Dr. Layard mentions that he met with umbrellas among the bas-reliefs in that city. "It resembled in shape," says the doctor, (meaning the Ninevitish parasol,) "those now in common use." There is one thing connected with the um...

DAILY EVENING STAR. THE DtoAM OF HAPPIHESS. Often bad I beard of happiness, but was ignorant of it myself. My anxious bean inquired, is it all a phantom; a thing of fiction merely, and not of fact? I deter mined to travel through the earth and see if it were in the possession of any mortal. I beheld a king on his stately throne.? Subjects obeyed his laws. A multitude of servants came nud went at his biddiug. Palaces of the jnost costly materials were at his service, and bis tables groaned under the richness of their burdens. He seemed furnished with all he could desire, but his countenance betrayed that he was not happy. I saw a man of wealth. He resided in an elegaut mansion, aud was surrounded by every luxury. But he lived in constant fear of losing bis possession. He was con stantly imagining that all his property would be consumed or taken frum him. Thus picturing in his own mind the miserable condition of himself and family, he was not satisfied with his present wealth. The mor...
