A Wife to her Husband in the Legislature. Air — "Father, come home." Husband, dear husband, come home to me now, ' From the city, and State-house so warm, 'Tis lonely without you, why do you not come And see to the things on the farm ? You told me, when you were elected last fall, If I would but once let you go, You'd surely return before April was past, And I really believed 'twould be so. Come home ! come home! come home! Dear husband, kind husband, come home. Husband, dear husband, come home to me now, Come home e'er the spring time is through ; The old brindle cow has got a white calf, And the young lambs are bleating for you! The hens have been sitting a fortnight or more, They soon will be off with their broods, The old speckled turkey has stolen her nest Away in the brakes or the woods.. Husband, dear husband, come home to me now, The garden needs spading for peas, The boys should be picking up stones in the lot, And you should be trimming the trees. When will you get thro' w...

Sea Music. The gray unresting sea, Adown the bright and belting shore, Breaking in untold melody, Makes music evermore. Centuries of vanished time, Since the glad earth's primaeval morn, Have heard the grand unpausing chime, Momemently aye new-born. Like as in cloistered piles, Rich bursts of massive sound upswells, Ringing along dim lighted aisles, With spirit trancing spell. So on the surf-white strand, Chants of deep peal the seaweeds raise, Like voices from a viewless land, Hymning a hymn of praise. By times, in thunder notes, The booming billows shoreward surge ; By times, a silverglaugh infloats; By times, a low soft dirge. Souls more ennobled grow, Listing the wordless anthem rise; Discords are drowned in the great flow Of Nature's harmonies. Men change, and "cease to be,' - ' And empires rise and grow and fall; But the weird music of the sea Lives, and outlives them all. That mystic song shall last 'Till time itself no more shall be ; 'Till seas and shores away have passed, ...

' Besides, what do they care to look at the fine cloth 1 coats —or latest bonnets ? No, indeed, not they! ; They are busy with better affairs. Our query j was all wrong. We beg pardon. In place of books, or work, or play, Some ladies spend the live-long day In scanning every passer by, And many a wonder they descry 1 They find among the motley crowd That some are gay and some are proud; That some are short and some are tall, They get their information all By peeping through the blinds!

'Twas Ever Thus. I never reared a young gazelle (Because, you see, I never tried) But, had it known and loved me well, No doubt the creature would have died. Mv rich and aged Uncle John Has known me long and loves me well, But still persists in living on— I would he were a young gazelle! I never loved a tree or flower But if I had, I beg to say, The blight, tho wind, the sun, the shower, Would soon have withered it away. I've.dearly loved my Uncle John, From childhood till the present hour And yet he will go living on— I would he were a tree or flower. Women were born, so fate declares, To smooth our linen and our cares ; And 'tis but just, for by my troth, They're very apt to ruffle both. Roses and Cabbages. .«-.
