'Tis rainy weather, my darling, Time's waves they heavily run, Rut taking the year together, my dear, There isn't more cloud than sun! Wc are eld folks now, my darling, Our heads they are growing gray, Rut taking the year nil round, my dear, You will always find the May! Wc have had our May, my darling, And our roses long ago, And the time of year is coming, my dear, For the silent night and the snow! And God is God, my darling, Of night as well as of day; We feel and know that wo can go Wherever He leads the way. Ah, God of the night, my darling, Of the night of death so grim! The irate that leads out of life, good wife, Is the gate that leads to Him! KEMEMBEB THE POOR. When plenty is smiling Around thy bright door Amid pleasure beguiling, Oh, pity the poor. The blessings God sends us In basket and store, Are the riches lie lends us To succor the poor. Each gift of his kindness Shall increase more aud more, Unless in our blindness We turn from the poor. To earth condescending Their garb ho once wore, And to him wo are lending When aiding the poor. Earth's vanishing treasuro May thus be secure, Ry largo hearted measure Of love to tho poor. In Heaven's high journal The record is sure, . Giving blessings eternal To the friends of the poor. The Family Day. 'Talking of family ties, family love and family gatherings, where would they be if it were not for a family day?" said a working man. 'What do you mean?" I asked. "I mean,' he replied, ''that the Lord's day is thu "family day." Why, I and thousands of workmen would hardly know our own children if it were not for that blessed day which brings us all together. Wc arc oil' iu the morning before the little ones arc up, and when we get home at night they arc mostly gone to bed, or they are tired, andso are we, and it's not very much we can know of each other at the end of the week; but when tho best day comes, that's all our own. Theu wc can gather round the table or fireside, and talk to one another and wc can go to the house of God together, and than'; him that ho has given us one day in seven as a holy, b'oss-ed family day." Eiaiigvltst. Yeiiv Pooh. A trifling fellow won the affections of the daughter cf an honest Dutchman of some wealth. On asking tho old man for her, he opened with a romantic speech about his being "a poor young man," &. ''Yah, yah," said the old man, "I knows all about it; but you ish a little too poor you has neilhcr money nor clnncfer," 1'roiu tho Detroit Tribuno.J A Young Hero. The Jrumnier boy who crossed tho Rappahannock ut Fredericksburg, on Thursday of last week, with the .Michigan 7th in their daring aehieveuicnt, urrived iu this city lust eveuiug, and we were afforded uu opportunity to converse with him. His name is Robert Henry Ilendershot, and lnt is thirteen years of age. His only living parent, his mother, resides at Jack-sou, iu this State, and has been supported lor a few years past by this sou and her own efforts, lie is a very bright and intelligent lad, modest but not bashful, and evidently honest and upright. lie told his (story in a plain, straightforward way, and of its reliability we have not the least doubt. It is of such a strange and romantic nature, that we feel justified in laying it in detail before our leaders. He first enlisted as a drummer boy in the 0th iu iniuntrv, and went with the , . ri. ...

He was also at the battle of iShiloh, and received u severe flesh wound under his i rieht eve. and uow carries the honorable scar with him. Af ter this battle he was stationed with the regiment at Murfrcuaboro, and .was captured there by the rebels. With the other prisotiers, lie marched forty-eight miles between teu o'clock iu the morning and twelve o'clock at night, part of the distanceou a double-quick, to MeMinnville. Here they were paroled, aud then all were sent to Camp Chase. He was there discharged ou account of epileptic fits to which painful alllictiou he has been subject since his earliest childhood. Ho returned to Monroe, aud went out with the 15th as waiter of one of the captains. After serving with them for u short time, he returned to this city, and served with Lieut, llogan, then recruitiug iu the city, as a drummer. A few weeks since, he went on with the Chaplain ol the tth, aud joined that regiment, although notregular)- enlisted, as his continually recurring fits prevented his acceptance. On tho day ol the taking of Frederioksburg, he left his regiment aud pressed to the river bank, where the whole course of events was clearly observable, llisdescription of the battle is most luciu and graphic. At half past two, volunteers were culled to cross the river iu boats iu the face ot the cuemy's lire, and scatter their sharpshooters. The 7th Michigan rushed down, and our drummer boy with them. llo was the third one m the boat, following the Captain aud Lieutenant. The ( aptaiii in I command ordered him out against his pro - I t.t:itirini. t. ! 1 1 II hilll that ho Wnlllll cnri.lv be killed. ile lliuu waited on the shore and shoved ofl the first boat, when it was fully loadei , and instead of remaining on shore, clung to the stern ol the bout, am was borne across half way under water. The shot and shell flew thiikly. l'wo men were killed within arms length of him, and his coat was torn open by a bullet. On reaching the opposite shore a shot struck his drum knocking it into splinters, and he caught up a loaded gun, dropped by a wounded or dead soldier, and followed on. lie was on:1 of the first to tear down to secession flag, and has brought off a piece as a trophy. lie then broke open a house, and found in the yard a rebel sharpshooter wounded in his right hand. lie immediately brought his gun to bear on him, aud marched him off to the boats in tricniph us u prisoner. He then re-crossed the river, and Gen. Rurn-side met him aud said: ' glory in your spunk, boy; if you go on that way you will soon get to my place." Among tiie trophies he found in the house he broke open, was a human bone partially carved in the shape of a ring, whi.h he brought oft'and has now with him. It would seem to confirm many of the horrible stories we have heard of the rebel barbarities. He was also present at the battle of Saturday, but did uot actually participate, being iu the city of Fredericks, burg. After the battle his malady occasioned his discharge again, and he started for home. He was found in Raltimore by a well knon citizen of Novi, in Oakland county, and he brought him with him to this city, arriving last evening. Ou all the railroads and at all the hotels, the little hero has been treated with all consider;!-! t in , aud no charges made for him anywhere, He is now here without money, and we trust that our prominent citizens will take up a contribution in his behalf Such rare heroism merits the greatest re ward. Hints to Parents. 1 Do not give needless commands, but when you command, require prompt obedience.2 Cultivate a sympathy with your child iu all lawful joys and sorrows. 3 Do uot expect to make your child perfect.4 Re sure that you never correct a child until you know it deserves correction. Hear its story first and fully. 5 Never allow your child to whine or fret, or bear grudges. 0 Never mortify the feelings of your child by upbraiding it with dullness; but do not inspire it with self-conceit. 7 Pray for and with your child often and heartily. 8 Let no one interpose between your authority and your child. 9Encourage-allutteinptsatsolf-improvc-ment, Commend when you can. 10 Never deceive, uor break a promise to a child. There is not a stream of trouble so deep and swift running that wc may not cross safely over it, if wo havo courago to steer and strength to pull.

To be shot dead is one of the easiest modes of terminating life; yet. rapid as it is, the body has leisure to feel and reflect. On the first attempt by one of the frantic adherents of Spain to assassinate William, Prince of Orange, whotook the lead iu the revolt of the Netherlands, the ball passed through the bones of the face aim brought him down. In the instant that preceded stupefaction, he was able to frame the notion that the ceiling of the room had fallen aud crushed him. The cannon shot which plunged into the brain of Charles the Twelfth did not prevent him from seizing his sword by the hilt. The idea of an attack and the ueeessity for defence, was pressed on him by a blow which wc should have supposed too tremendous to leave an interval for thought. But it by no means follows that the inflicting of fatal violence is accompanied by a pang. From what is known of the first effect of a gun shot wound, it is probable that the impression is rather stunning than acute. Unless death be immediate, the pain is as varied as the nature of the injuries, and these are past counting up. Rut there is nothing singular in the dying sensation, though Lord Ryron remarked the physiological peculiarity that the expression js invarin-ably that of languor, while iu death from a stab the countenance reflects the natural character, of gentleness, of ferocity, to the last breath. Some of these cases arc of interest, to show with what slight disturbance life may go under a mortal wound, till it finally conies to a sudden stop, A foot sol dier at Waterloo, pierced by a musket ball in the hip, begged water of a trooper; who j Cliaiiceu 10 pusaeas a eiiiiiuiu ui m;ei. i lie wounded man drank, returned his heartiest thanks, mentioned that his regiment was nearly exterminated, and having proceeded a dozen yards on his way to tho rear, fell to the earth, and with one convulsive movement of his limbs, conclu led his ca- rccr. "let ins voice, saiu ine tiooper, who himself tells the story, "gave scarcely tho smallest sign of weakness." Captain Rasil Hull, who, in his early youth, was present at the battle of Corriiiuia, hits singled out, from the confusion which consigns to oblivion tho woes and gallantry of war, on- other instance, extremely similar, which occurred on that occasion. An old officer, who was shot in the head, arrived pale and faiat at the temporary hospital, and begged the surgeon o look at his wound, which was pronounced mortal. "Indeed, I feared so," ho responded, with impeded utterance, "and yet I should like very much to live a little longer, were it possi ble." lie hud his sword upon a stone at his side, "as gently," says Hall, "as if its steel hud been turned to glass, and almost luiuicuiiiij ou. A Terrible Mean Man. We've known sonic very mean men in our time, There was Dcacou Overreach; uow he was so mean, lie always carried a hen in his gig box when ho travelled, to pick up tho oats his horso wasted iu the manger, and lay an egg for his breakfast in the morning. And there was Hugo Ilimmel. who made his wifo dig potatoes to pay fur his marriage license. Wc must tell that story of Hugo, for it's not a bad one, and good stories, like potatoes, arc not so plenty now as they used to be when we wercaboy. Well, ho was going to get married to Grctchen Gulp, he goes down to Parson Rogers, at Digby, to get a license: 'Parson," says he, "what's tho priec o: a license?" "Six dollars?" says he. "Six dollars?" says Ilugy, "that's a dreadful sight of money. Couldn't you take no less?" "No," says he, "that's what they :ost me at tho Secretary's office, at Halifax." "Well, how much do you ax for publishing in church, then?" "Nothing," says the parson. "Well," says Hugo, "that's so cheap I can't expect you to give no change back, T think I'll be published. How long docs it take?" "Three Sundays." "Three Sundays!" says Hugo, "well that's a long time. Rut three Sundays only make a fortnight, after all; two for the covers and one for the inside like; and six dollars is a great sum of money for a poor man to throw away. I must wait:" So off he went jogging towards home, and looking about as mean as a new sheared sheep, when a bright thought came into his head, and back he went as hard as his horse would carry him. "Parson," says he, "I've changed my mind. Hare's my six dollars. I'll tic the k not to-night with my tongue that I can't undo with my teeth." "Why, what in tho nature is the meaning of all this?" says the parson. "Why," says Hugo, "I've been cyphering it out in my head, audit's cheaper than publishing bans, after all. You see, sir, its potato digging time; if I wait to be culled to church, her father will have her work for nothing, and as hands are scarce and wages high, if I marry her to-mght. she can begin to dig our own to-morrow, and that will pay for tho license, and just seven shillings over, for there ain't a man in all Clermont that can dig and carry as many bushels in a day as Grctchen can. Aud besides, fresh wives work like smoke at first, but they get saucy aud lazv after awhile." He married her and made her dig potatoes during the honeymoon. We call that mean. .Modern Heroism. The splendid- defense of his ship made by Commodore Rcnshaw, at Galveston, and the final act in the great tragedy, in which that the brave officers fired the magazine, sending himself and many of his officers and men to eternity, recall tho old heroic days of Rlake and Yan Throp, and renew in public recollection the ancestral dories of our own Navy in far later times. The vessel was aground. To rescue her from the enemy was impossible; to preveut her awing into hostile hands, a necessity; and to fire tho magazine the last resource. The Commodore was at once priest, victim and hero. He applied the torch, died a glorious death for his country, and by a deed that few parallels in history, secured for himself an immortality, the honors of which shull bo coequal with the nobility of his act. Aud Lieutenant Wainwright.. too, com manded tho crew of the Harriet Lane what a field of glory that in which he and and they reaped, and how bountiful the crop. In all, ono hundred and twenty brave hearts when the battle began when it endcd.only seventeen survived. Tho others had fallen beneath the shadow of the fla forthe honor of which they poured out their precious lives! What spot on earth, or what page in history is consecrated by glories like these? Where, in the records of any nation, or in the fictions which cluster around tho days of Chivalry, have we a parallel of these modern instances? The race which, in a single unequal fight, de- rclopcs such self-sacrificing devotion, is not degenerate. Strong in numbers, and, as Galveston proves, rich in latent capability of the greatest ef human exploits, it must conquer. A Soi,niEn's Hint. A soldier met a secessionist woman the other day in War-rcnton, Ya. Sho instantly hoisted her dress to an unusual height, and swung around to clear him. The soldier, who was attentively regarding the spectacle, cried out in blank nstnnishinnnh ''Wh .i djrty stockings!" The skirts went down jnu ine wouiui aisappeareu. The Mourner. "It's very lonely, mamma," murmured a fair-haired, lovely girl, as she rested on tho sofa, one evening; "It is very lonely now, and the night seems very long. Shull I never see papa any more?'' "Yes, my love, you shall sea him in a brighter world than this." "Rut this is a fair world," said the little gi rl, "I love to run and piny in tho warm sunshine, and pick tho water-cresses from the brook, and when tho weather is a little warmer I shall go and gather the blue-eyed violet, that pa said was so liko me." "Too like, I fear," said the mother, and the tear-drop trembled on tho drooping lid. Rut my child, there is a fairer world than this, where the flowers ncvor fade, where the clouds never hide the light of the glorious sky, for the glory of Him whose name is hove, beams brightly and forever in those golden courts; tho trees that grow nn-the lnlc of the river that waters that blessed place, uever fadeas they do in this world, and when friends meet there, thev will be parted no more, but will sing hymns of praise to God and the Lamb forever. "And shall I go to that jlaeo when I die," said the child, "aud will you go with me.' "Yes," said the mother, "we shall go in God's own time, when he call us from this life, we shall dwell with him forever.'' It was a little while, and the mother bent over tho jrravo of ihis little flower of j intellect, withered by the untimely frosts of j death; but was she alone when in tho twi- light shades, shesat upon the grassy mound, when the deep and yearning hopes of that fond heart was gathered in oblivion silence? Oh, no! tho soft and silvery tones of buried love whispered in the breeze that lifted the drooping flowers overcharged with the dewy tears of night. The diamond stars that ono by one, came forth upou their shining watch, seemed beaming with the light of that lifeless flame which burned undinimed upon the inmost shrine of the heart; and she enjoyed in the hours of solitude that communion of pure spirits which our exalted faith alone can bestow. A Cautious Youth. "Sally," said a green youth in a venerable white hat and gray pants, through which his legs projected half a feet, per-1 haps more: "Sail, afore we go into this 'ere uiuseuiu to see the boa constructor, I want to ask you somethiu.' "Well, Ichabod, what is it?" " R'hy you see this ere business is a gwine to cost a quarter a-piece, audi can't afford to pay so much for uuth'u. Now, if you'll have me, durn'd ef I don't pay tho whole on't myself. I will, positiv-vily?"Sally made a non-committal reply, which Ichabod interpreted to suit himself, and he strode up two steps at a time, and paid down the "hull on't." Novel Locomotive In a certain Sabbath-school the superintendent made a powerful appeal to the scholars to be active and useful, an, among other things he told them they should all be locomotives, each taking its train towards heaven. The next Sabbath, just as school opened, in came one of thu best and most zealous boys with thirteen uew scholars behind him, aud went up tho aisle uttering a uoiso, piiff, puj pujf; imitative of tho cngino, to tho amazement of tho superintendent, teachers, and scholars. "What does this meau" said tho astonished superintendent. "Why," said the boy, "you said we must all be locomotives, and here I am with thirteen cars behind mo." Make Them Happy. A Pastor in Connecticut, in a rccont sermon, gave this as an all-important element in good government and trainiug. He says: "The great art in child-culture is to keep tho little ones happy, having all things as pleasant and bright about thera as possible. Children will have trials enough in spite of you. God will try them; and you yourself will be compelled to try them now and then. It cannot be helped. That is life; but the less the bet ter. The worst men began early, and had tumults, and angers, and abuses when they were little, and ought to have been just laughing the days away. Homes of discontent, sour homos, cloudy homes, irritable, scolding, undivine homes, make rebellious, and restless, and unsuccessful lives." It is Good to be Afflicted. Grapes yield most wine whea most pressed. Stars shine brightest in the darkest uiglit. A'ines are better for bleeding. Gold looks the brighter for scouring. Junipers smell sweetest in the fire. Chamomile, the more you tread it, the mora you iprpd it. Te 014 Bork. For Hit Annricin Mnj.sfigur, A "Dully Food." As a loving brother and sister were about to part, thesister wishing to give her broth- er something that might do him good, put into his hand the tiny book, "Daily Food," a text and verse of a hymn lor each day in the year. "It will not tuke long, my dear bo; ," sho said, to read one of the daily portions, and ask you for your absent sister's sake, to read one each day." The brother promised. Years parsed, and nsrain tho two were together. The church which he attended had been blessed, and tno sisters neari whs rejoice.. UJ fulfilling of the desire which had for many ! years been dearest to her, tho conversion of her brother. She was present iu the meeting when "C se 1111,1 tolJ his experience, and tears ot joy and gratitude gushed troui i.er cj. as she heard him name, as the immediate I means ol leading mm to give ins ne.iri to 1 . A I God, tho dear little book she so Ion "go had given him Ile stated that he sat at night in his clumber pondering what ho should do. Ho had resolved not to put ('deciding, but to take a firm ttand one way or the other. "And I will decide noie,'' he thought, ; as remembering that he had not read the verse for the day, he took np and opened J the "Daily Food." The passage was an I invitation to God, and he was brought at niii-rt to accent it: and kneeliiicr down do- himMlf to the Pbl.vicii of uis Maker. Things Worth Forgettlu?. It is almost frightful, and altogether humiliating, to think how much there is in the common on-going of domestic and social life, which deserves nothing but to be instantly and forever forgotten. Yet it is equally amazing how large a class seem to have no other business but to repeat and perpetuate these very things. That is the vocation of gossips an order of society that perpetrates more mischief than all the combined plagues of Egypt together You may have noticed how many speeches there are which become mischievous only by being heard n second time;and what an army ol both sexes are sworn to seo it, that the fatal reputation shall bo had. Blessed is that man or woman that can let drop all tho burrs and thistles, instead of picking them up, and fastening them on the next passenger! Would we only let tho vexing and malicious sayings die, how fast the htceratjd and scandal ridden world would get healed aud tranquilized. Dt. Hunting, ton. Cultivation of Temper. If happily we are bom of good nature, if a liberal educatiou has formed in us a generous temper and disposition, well regulated appetites aud worthy inclinations, it is well for us, and so we esteem it. Rut where is the endeavors to give these to himself, or to advance his portion of happiness in this kind. Who thinks of improving, or so much of preserving his share, in a world where it must of necessity run so great a hazard where we know an honest nature is so easily corrupted. All things relating to us arc preserved with care, and have some act of economy relating to them, this which is nearest related to us, on which our happiness depends, it is alone committed to chance, aud temper is the only thing ungoverued, whilo it governs all the rest. Memory of the Dead. . It is an exquisite and beautiful thing in our nature that when the heart is touched by somo tranquil happiness or affectionate feeling, the memory of the dead comes over it most powerful and irresistably. It would almost seem as though our better thoughts and sympathies were charms' in virtue of which the soul is enabled to hold some varue and mysterious intercourse with the spirit of those whom we dearly loved in life. Alas, how often and how long may those patient angels hover above us, watching for the spell which is so seldom uttered and so soon forgotten. Longfellow. Amusement for the Children- Let some members of the family write a perfect legible hand, a dozen or more simple sentences on stiff papor, cut every word apart, shuffle donp like packages of pow. dcrs and put into a neat box with tho childs name for whom they are intended written upon it, and number the packages according to the gradations of the scntencs. Tell the child to commence with No. 2 and so on, as long as the child is intcrosted. Thus, can-not-a-cat-run, can be converted into soveral difforent sentences, as a cat run, and cannot a cat run.
