Love on a Carpet for me. - They n.ay talk of love in a cottage, And bowers of trellised vine— Of nature bewitctingly simple. And milkmaids half divine; They may talk of the pleasures of sleeping In the shade of a spreading tree. And a walk in the fields at morning. By tbe side of • footstep free! But give me a sly flirtation By tbe light ofa chandelier— With music to play in the pouses, And nobody very near; Or a seat on a silken sola With a glass of pure old wine, And mamma 100 blind to discover Tbe small white hand in mine. Tour love in a cottage is hungry, Your wine is a nest for flics — Your milkmaid shocks the Graces, And simplicity talks of pies I Tou lie down to your shady slumber And wake with a bug in your ear, And your damsel that walks in the morning Is shod like a mountaineer. True lore is st home on a carpet, And mightily likes bis ease, And true love has an eye for a dinner, And starves beneath shady trees. His wing is the fan of a lady, His foot's an invisible thing, ...

"Be Quiet, Do I I'll Call My Mother !" As I was sitting in a wood, Under an oak tree's leafy cover, Mu*ing in pleasant solitude, Who should come by but John, my lover! He pressed nvy band, and kissed my cheek, Then warmer growing, kissed the other, While I exclaimed, and strived to shriek, "Be quiet, do! I'll call my mother!" He saw my anger was sincere. And lovingly began to chide me; Then wiping from my cheek the tear, He sat him on the grass beside me. He feigned such pretty amorous woe, Breathed such sweet vows one after other, I could but smile, while whispering low, "Be quiet, do! I'll call my mother!" He talked so'long, and talked so well, And swore he meant not to deceive me; I felt more grief than I earj tell, When with a sigh, he rose to leave me; "Oh, John." said I, "and must thou go? I love you better than all other; There is ho need to hurry so : I never meant to call my mother." Wit and Humor. To rob a man of his money, is to wound him iv the chest. Why is rheumatism l...

Long Ago. BY A SCOTCHMAN IN* CALIFORNIA. Do you remember, brother mine. That quaint old farmhouse on tbe Tyne, Where you and I were born— The gabh-d roof's, the gilded vanes, The windows with their diamond panes Thai glittered to the morn 1 And do you recollect the hill Behind the house - ' IMe it still, All dotted o'er with sheep ; And, farther off the solemn woods Above whose leafy solitudes Arose the castle keep. We thought an ogre, gaunt and grim Who longed to tear us limb from limb, Dwelt in that ruined tower; And bitterly we used to dread . I The gloomy journey up to bed, When came the appointed hour. When all the giants killed by Jack Lurked in the ball and dragged us back, Outside the parlor door— Perchance 'twas but my .shirt hud caught; But oh ! my horror when I thought 'Twas clutched for evermore! And then, when we had said good night, And Janet took away the light, And k-ft us in our beds, Do you remember how we two Lay dumb and trembling, as we drew The blankets o'er ou...
