HM Dronkaid'i Lament It is « beautiful evening in the month of November.- The lovdy moon looks qaietly dowa, and smiles alike upon the splendid mansion and the humblest hut. From the aspect of things, one would think that nought but joy reigned upon earth. But onne with me to yonder lit-tle brown cot—^there is true sorrow I Fr :«B the most retired comer of the house gleams forth a dim l i ^ t ; within is Mr. G , the dmnkavi I For a^ moment he sits, statae-IiEe, with his fiaoe bulged in his hanb ; tlien starts with a coaateaaaoe ef deiipaii:; which plainly indicates Ae language of his heart, exclaims, "^It is toe late." Why does he not, as be. has been ao-costomed to do when be was in trouble, resort to the rum^ller for consolation i Will be not as usual present to him the poisioDons cup to cheer his «pirit8 and drive away his sorrow 7 Ah^ the vei^ thought ot it makes him shudder f to sees its effects ; before' him lies the cold, motamUess form of his wife—a corpse! He knows that his own hand has commit-ted the muidcr, by placing so often to his l ^ t b e ruinous drink, in spite of her en-tneaties 1 Yes, grief for him has broken b a heart aiid dratroyed her precious life! Let^im wecy—that heart which for years has betti too beaat-like, is softened ; he cando a o u ^ bat shed tears of grief and repentance, and feel that he has repented too lale J It is not too late for him to be-come a man, and set a good example be-fore the world, but it «too late now for him to acoompiish his chief desire 1 Fain would he restore the natural brilliancy to those eyes now closed in death, the freshness to those colorless cheeks, the warmth to those cold lips, and life to tbose motionless limbs—he would give the world to see that wife now, as he suw her years ago. Memory transports him back to the time when he led her to the altar, a fail and blushing bride, proud to claim her as his own. What was his promise then 1 Was it to negle^and forsake her for the demon rum 1 V ^ it to point a djggir lier heart, and daily plunge it de:;p: r and deeper, tUl ^cbxip of her blood was draine^r-did his marriage vow con-tain anything like this 7 No ! his pledge was to love, cherish, and protect her and no wonoer then that icy blood darts through his trembling frame, as he thiycs how cruelly, lii; has betrayed the trust <af that too faithful wife 1 Now, as when for the first time dhe per ceived that he coveted ' " resolution dies away witlithe excitement of the past scfene, or wMther he has in reality reformed.

But soon I am awakened by my wife (watchful creature) calling "John, I guess that mouse IS in the' lowest bureau draw, where all the baby's tilings are." So up I get once more, and make a plunge for the bureau, and mouse leaves as usual, while I, like the Quaker, wish for some profaue person to d—^n that monse. Well, I £^t on the rml once more and dream cf sending an order to Ghicam for mousetraps. Well, Idreamawhite till I am once more awakened by the old fa> milliar call, "John ! John ! the baby wants tending to"—-Well, I sit up and bold the light, while she—^ Wel^no matter, you know what I mean. The next morning,, I have to be careful in using the towels, for "all is not gold that glitters." But I must keep still and stand it all for the dear little baby-mother's precious lamb. Good bye; yours as muich as possible. Ihonoir. P. S.—Oar bale's name is Fanny Louisa. N. B.—Don't forget the baby's name. "WE'VE GOT A BABY."—The following letter, which bears internal evidence of being a bona-fide epistle, was picked up in the streets of Utica, recently :— Brother and Sister Stebins—We've got a live baby at our house, a little girl ba-by— that's so. How I vish Ibis might find you in the same situation. You know I always wishedyoa well But our laby is none of jour oommon babies.

"WeU, you'd better attend to it, then, and don't bother me." "Madam, Fm out with the census, and— "Well, yon act out of your senses, I should think, to come into my house ask-ing such questions " "It is in accordanee with an act of Con-gress, madam." Well, you tell Mr. Coagvess, or what-ever his name is, that he acts veiy fool-ish, sending yon around axing anch shid-ler silly questiona." The man lefL ly 7—Ah. in the ^ntlestaccentsahe point- 'jd him to the disgrace and danror of such associates, and entreated dem tu shun them entirely. He heeded aot hei kiAd warning, but rushed carelessly on, thinking t b ^ could be no harm in being a spectator, and occasionally mingling in their (what he called) innocent and amusii^-conversation and sport ; for cer-tainly, he never should join in their vic-habits I but he was not aware that his mind was constants becoming weak-er under their vile induence. Little did he think boj7 so(Hi the temptation would be presented, and whrtan effort it would require to resist i t ; he considered his a nobler, braver mind than to yield to what he knew was debasii^, for fear of being called a coward, by such low, wortblras beings. Now, as when for the first time he re-turned home at the midnight hour, and it was evident to her that he was a partici-pator with his wretched companions in vice ; that his lips were polkted by the poisioncas draught, he feels those scald-teair drops on his brow ; and do they affect bite>«ior3 now than when they were shedin reaUly 7 Then he brushed them carelessly away—they cost him nothing, and it mattered i ^ t to him what reason she had to grieve I Wvf nfferings were nothing to him ; his affections were placed on another object—yes, rum.wat^ bis idol. Now he realizes the value of that hoad he so often has—cursed, and wished he had never known 1 but 'tis out of his way now—the heart has ceased to beat, and those tears are dried up ; the pleadingf^ of tliat gentle voice are hushed, and wil: trouble him no more ! "Oh," says he, "could I but ask her for giveness, and teH her my resolution to re-form— tell her that her last, her dying piayer (which wiil forever ring in my ear8;is answered ! but it ip too late ]" Yes, by her <x)ld remains he ha^ grieved away another night, and now he must see her laid in the silent grave, and ix'- iae^OiaBBB fbv Soa|^ er and me) that she is the handsomest baby that ever lived ; and eveiybody says, "what a pretty child—how much she looks like ber father.^ Children will resemble their parents you know.

If it hadn't been ior that white bat of mine, I couldn't have told which end my bead was on. I wont up stairs a dozen times or less after my hatr-went and looked at the baby, and tbrgot it eveiy tune. Sold a man some g o ^ on "t ck," and charged to him ''one baby sixpence per pound." But I'mcahner now ;*think I shall entirely recover. Be-gin to think baby ain't such a cunning affair after all. It's quite a night institu-tion, It takes one half of the bed, and right in the middle, and I have to sleep all round on the ^ges. Can't roll ovei and kick as I used to—might wake up the baby. And if I just happened to roil on the little thibg in tlie night, then there's a fuss, for my wife would make a threat ado if I should kill that baby. She sleeps with one eye open. I'll teU you ibout how I get along nights. The oth at nig^t I went to bed as usual, got into a snooze, when my wife called, "John !

Woou—The history vf the growth «ii wool is very curious. Fifty years ago not a pound of fine wool was raised in thi< United States, in Great Britain cr in any i>ther country except Spain. In the lat-ter country, the fiocks were owned extlu sivelybythe nobility or by , the crown. In 1794 a small fiock was sent to tlu* Elector of Saxony as a present from the Ring of Spain, whence the entire product of Saxony wool, now of such immensi value. In 1809, during the second inva sion of Spain by the French, some of the valuable crown flocks were sold to raise money. The American Consul at Lisbon Mr. Jarvis, purchased fourteen hundred head, and sent them to this country. A portion of the pure unmixed Merino bloud of these flock is to be found in Verm:>nt at tills time. Such was the origin of the iaiinense flock of fine wooled sheep in the United States.
