The Kaln at Sea.
'Twas on a low and lonesome shore
At least, it lonesome seenied to me
And lilac clouds foreverraore y'
Hung moveless jnst above the sea.
There was do voice of sea or land,!
All Nature seemed ns out of breath :

.xu.euB snauows meeting aeatu : i
The ospray, and the nearlv mew.
And fated xietrel swept the heather,
Where purple leaved syringas grew,
And all seemed desolate together. ?
The lines a long the shingled beach
Told woildless tales of weary' ages j
But who was there those lines to teach,

All things were there as at creation,
espJoreu and uueiplaiued ;
-written todies of desoTon. I :
With nothing lost: and nothing gained.
They seemed to only serve a doom
All sea and laud aud living creature j
The flowers, like some lives, would bloom.
But yet appeared to have no future.
Why is it that we Sometimes meet,
In journeys througii deserted places,
Objects that memory seems to greet
From scarcely conscious traces f
Through some old homestead's open door
Where vines the desolation cover,
Impressions we have known before,
Arouud us indistiuctly hover.
Our souls can ne'er forget entire, i
But need some kindred chance aloue,
To light again the hidden fire 1
That circumstance has blown, j
Then, as we indistinctly grope
Up memory's dim arid windiug stairs,
We seem to lc the waudering Hope
That's lived kix thousand years. I
And Fate, fioni iron -bonded tome,
Enunciates its measured scroll,
Ami the judgment, "Tarry till I come'"
Is seethed upon the withered son!.

The moveless, lilac clouds, liefortt f
Ah, yes! An artist nothing wore,
L eaw once in my distant rambles
UpmJ this old, deserted shore
Of broom, and sedge, and brambles.
Her easel stood tittou the strand.
k It very lonesome seemed to me,
And the brush in her unconscious hand
Was painting a ruin at sou.
She spoke no words. But words, at best,
Aie often brainless, idle things,
And bare to thoughts the hollow breast
That fools bet my to kings.
The brush had drawn the heathered land
The lilac clouds and rainy sea.
And ttHth-rneath the unconscious hand
Wrote, 17r, amort tencbric.
I never coald the words define,
j THi'ii uieauing to the sea or land,
i 'Twere as an angel's thoughts Ur mine,

And fated ietiel swept the heather;
Just why Ave did wo never knew,

Tins was six thousand years agone,
Or so the revkouiiig seems to me,
And one by one those years have flown
To moveless clouds above the sea.
Among their cola timed walls, and rife.
An easel stands upon the lea j
And on the sea-lines of my life
Are writen, Vita, . amor, tcnebra?. .
'Tis strange that while I seek to shun
Things that are drear aud sad to me,
Somehow, I love to look upon

Like the symphonies of Mendelsshou,

I thought I was singing my boy to sleep
with the litte ballad of which the above is
achorous; but the blue eyes opened, and
the quiet voice said, "Mamma aint always
gentle." In self-justification I replied "But,
you know darling, Mamma has toscoid you
when you're naughty." "Yes'em." The
argument dropped ; so did the little head
upon my bosom. I did not finish the song,
nor have I sung it since. Tenderly tucking
in the little truth-teller, I reproached myself
for deserving his remark, and gently ques
tioned the truth of my answer. Do mothers
ever have to scold ? Has scolding anv lcint
itnatc place iir thif family government?
How is the word defined f "Railing with
clamor, uttering rebuke in rude and bois
terous language." Is this a helpful adjunct
to parental authority? Why do Christian
parents sometimes scold ? For two reasons,
it seems to us. First, for lack of sett-control,
from habit Children are often terri
bly trying, and lou.l and angry tones seem
a safetv-valve for mir stirred tempers. Be
sides, we feel that gentleness alone can nev
er safely steer the family bark over life's
troublous sea. Force, firmness, decision,
stcrnnes.4, even severity, are often necessary.
A suitable degree of these is not incompati-
b!e with sceatlcness. It is not a synonym of
weakness. The gentleness that makes one
great, comes from subdued strength. I This
lovely fruit of the Spirit proves an element
of power. The "soft answer." often costs
the answerer dearly. Sweetness of spirit is
thd outgrowth of self-control. Serenity of
soul, whatever be the constitutional charac
teristics, comes most frequently from long
self-discipline and prayerful struggle Good
A Boy to the Chief Command. When
Gen. Bonaparte first came among us we were
furious with the Directorate for having sent
a boy to command us. (It should be re
membered that at this time Napoleon was
only 26 years-of age.) He was a short, awk
ward-looking, thin youth, and the Army
was seriously discontented with having such
a boy placed in the chief command, while
Generals like Augerean and Masscna were
placed under hiin, but they soon felt the in
fluence of the young General's genius in es
tablishing order among them ; and after the
battle of Monenotte, when Napoleon on the
following morning visited the hospitals, and
addressed words of encouragement to every
wounded soldier, and saw himself that his
wounds were dressed and his failing strength
revived by Suitable nourishment, a kind jf
magic confidence in him came over the spirit
of the soldiers, which the subsequent vic
tories of Degoand Massemo, following soon
after that of Monenotte, kindled into a spirit
of enthusiasm. Temple Bar.

The question can be settled one way or

us that Eddie Dees, a sou of Edmund

county, was cutting down a tree near the
house ' day or two ago, when it lodged
against another tree aud the butt thrown
suddenly arouud ui such a way as to strike
him on the back of the neck, which was
broken by force of the blow. Failing to
go to his breakfast at the usual time his
sister went to look for him, when she dis
covered the dead bwly of her unfortunate
brother, got it out from under the trunk
of the tree with her own hands aud con
veyed it home. It is supposed that his
death was instantaneous. Deceased was
