I stood by the marge of the summer sea
As the day was quietly dying,
When the waves were lulled iu a dreamless
And the seamews plaintively cryingi
The broad red disk of the setting sun
Was poised on the mighty ocean.
And the wavelets were breaking one by ohe
On the shore, with a dreamy motion.
But a gorgeous curtain of blue and gold
Now fell on the sleeping billow,
And the sun, like a monarch infirm and old,
Reclined on his glowing pillow.
But again a change, as he sank to rest ,
.3, cobbh of surpfvisi.-.g g3&ry,
For the hues that trembled on ocean's breast,
Mocked the wonders of Eastern story.
Slowly these beauties all passed away,
As I saw Night's shadow descending,
And I deemed it well, such a perfect day
Should have such a perfect ending!
I am entirely at a loss to khow
what to do with that boy said
Mrs. Barton to her husband, with
much concern oh her face, and in
an anxious tone of voice. " I nev
er yield to his imperious temper ;
I never indulge him in anything :
I think about him, and care about
him at all times, but see no good
While Mrs. Barton was speaking,
a bright, active boy, eight years
of age, came dashing into the room,
and, without heeding any one,
commenced beating with two
large sticks against one of the window-sills,
and making a deafeninp-
" Incorrigible boy !" exclaimed
his mother, going quickly up to
him, and jerking the stick out of
his hand : can I not teach you ei
ther manners or decency? I have
told you a hundred times that
when you come into a room where
any one is sitting you must be qui
et. Go up-stairs this moment, and
do not let me see your face for an
The boy became sulkv in an in
stant, and stood where he was,
pouting sadh
"Did you hear what I said? Go
up-stairs, this moment!"
Mrs. Burton spoke in a very an
gry tone, and looked quite as angry
as she spoke.
Slowly moved the boy to the door,
a scowl darkening his face,that was
but a moment before so bright and
cheerful. His steps were too de
liberate for the over-excited feel
ings of the mother; she sprang to
ward him, and seizing him by the
arm, pushed him from the 1'oom
and closed the door after him."
I declare I arn out of all heart!"
she exclaimed, sinking down Upon
a chair. "It is line upon line, and
precept upon precept, but all to no
good purpose. That boy will break
ray heart yet.'
3Ir. Barton said nothihg, but he
saw plainly enough that it teas not
all the child s fault. He doubt'
ed the use of speaking out and say
ing this unequivocally, although
he had often and often been on the
point of doing so involuntarily. He
knew the temper of his wife so well,
and her peculiar sensitiveness about
everything that looked like charg
ing any fault upon herself, that he
feared more harm than good
would result from an attempt on
his part to show her that she was
much more than half to blame for
the boy's perverseness of temper.
Once or twice the little fellow
showed himself at the door", but
was driven back with harsh words
until the hour for tea arrived. The
sound of the ten-bell caused an in
stant oblivion of all the disagreea
ble impressions made on his mind.
His little feet answered the wel
come summons with a clatter that
stunned the ears of his mother.
"Go back sir," she said sternly
as he opened the dining-room door,
and sent it swinging with a lond
concussion against the wall, " and
see if you cannot walk down-stairs
more Tike a bo v. than a horse."
Master Henry Withdrew, pout
' ' . . -
ing out his rosy lip3to the distance
of nearly an inch. He went np
ght of stairs, and then re
" Go up to the third story,
where you first started from, and
come down quietly all the way, or
you shall not have a mouthful of
" I don't want to," whined the
"Go up, I tell you, this instant,
or I will send you to bed without
anything to eat.'
This was a threat that former ex
perience had taught him might be
executed, and so he deemedlt bet
ter to submit than pay too dearly
for having his own way. The dis
tance to the third story was made
in a few light springs, and then he
came pattering down as lightly;
and took his place at the table
quickly, but silently.
"There there, not too fast ; you
have plenty to eat, and time enough
to eat it in."
Henry settled hinself down to
the table as quietly as his mercur
ial spirits would let him, and tried
to wait until hfe was helped, but in
spite of all his efforts to do so, his
hand went over into the bread
basket. A look from his mother
causedt him to drop the slice he
had raised it teas not a look xchere
there icas much1 aeffciion. While
wattmg; to; be - helped his hands
Were busy .wilhThJs knife and fork,
making a most unpleasant clatter.
"Put down tour hands!" harshly
spokeh, remedied this evil, or rath
er sent the active movement from
the little fellow's hands to his feet,
that commenced a swinging mo
tion, his heels striking noisily
against the chair.
"Keep your feet still!" caused
this to cease.
After one or two more reproofs,
the boy was left to himself. As
sodn as he received his cup of tea
he ppured the entire contents into
his saucer and then tried to lift it
steadily to his lips. In doing so
he spilled one-third of the contents
upon the tablecloth.
'Have I not told you over and
over again, you bad boy, hot to
pour the whole of your tea into
your saucer? Just see what a mess
you have made With that clean
tablercloth! I declare I am out of
patience With Vou! Go aicaii
from the table this instant!'
Henry went crying away, not in
anger but in grief. He had spilled
his tea by accident. His mother
had so many reproofs and injunct
ions to make that the bearing of
them all in mind xcas impossible.
As to pouring out all his tea at
a time, he had no recollection tj
any interdictton on that subject)
although it had been made over
and over again very often. In a
little while he came creeping slow
ly back and resumed his place at
the table, his eyes on his mother's
Mrs. Barton was sorry that she
had sent him away for what was
only an accident. She felt that
see had hardly been just to the
thoughtless boy. She did not there
fore, object to his coming back,
and said, as he took his seat:
"Next time, see that you are
more careful. I have told you
again and again not to fill your
saucer to the brim ; you never can
do it without spilling the tea on
the table-cloth.'
This even was not spoken in
A scene somewhat similar to this
was enacted at every mectl ; but im
stead of improving in his behavior
the boy grew more- and more heed1
Mr. Barton rarely said anything
to Henry about his unruly manner;
but when he did, a Word was
That word was always mildly
but firmly spoken. He did not
think him a bad boy, or difficult
to manage; at least he had never
found him so.
"I wish I knew what to do with
that child," said Mrs. Barton, af
ter the little fellow had been sent
to bed an hour before his time, in
consequence of some violation of
law and order; "he makes me con
stantly feel unhappy. I dislike to
be scolding him for ever ; but what
can I do? If I did not curb him
in some way, there Would be no
living in the house With him. I
am afraid he will cause us a great
deal of trouble."
Mr. Barton sat silent. He want
ed to say a Word on the subject,
but he feared that its effect might
not be what he desired.
" I wish you would advise me
what to do, !Mr. Barton," said his
wife, a little petulantly. "You
sit and do not say a single word,
as if you had no kind of interest
in the matter, What am I to do?
I have exhausted all my own re
sources, and feel completely at a
"There is ft way which, if you
adopt it, I think might do good,"
said Mr, Barton with a slight ap
pearance of hesitation. " If you
would speak gently to Henry, I am
sure you would be able to manage
him far better thnn you do,"
Mrs. Burton's face was crimsof!
in an instant. She felt the reproof
deeply het self-esteem was severe
ly wounded, peak gently, in
deed f' she replied ; " I might as
well speak to the wind. Iant
scarcely heard note, at the top of
my voice."
As her husband did not argue
the matter with her, nor say any-'
thing that was calculated to keep up
the excitement under which she
was laboringj her feelings in a lit
tie while quieted down, ajad hef
thoughts became active. The
words " spefilc gently" were con
stantly in her mind, and there was
a reproving import in them.
On going to bed that night she
could not get to sleep for several
hours ; her mind was too busily en
gaged in reviewing her conduct to
ward her child.
She clearly perceived that she
hadtoo frequently sufferedjher mind
to get excited and angry, and that
she was often annoyed, at-trifles
which Ought" to have been over
" I afh afraid I have been unjust
to my child, she sighed over and
over again, turning restlessly upon
het pillow, " I will try and do
better," she said to herself, as she
rose iil the morning feellhg but lit
tle refreshed from her sleep.
Before she was ready to leave
her room, she heard Henry's voice
calling her from the chamber where
he slept. The tones were fretful
He wanted some attendance, and
was crdng out for it in a manner
that instantly disturbed the even
surface of the mothers feelings.
She was about telling him angrily
to wait till she could finish dress
ing herself, when the words "speak
gently" seemed whispered in her
ear, l heir enect was magical; the
mother's spirit was subdued.
" I will speak gently," she mur
mured, and went in to Henry, who
was Still crying out fretfully.
"What do you want, my son?"
she said, in a quiet, kind voice.
The boy looked up with surprise;
his eye brightened, and the whole
expression of his face was changed
in ah instant.
"I cannot find my stockings ma
ma," he said,
" There they are, under the bu
reau,' replied ALrs. Jarton, as
gently as she had at first spoken,
" Oh yes, so thev are!" cheerful--
ly replied Henry; I coitkl not see
them anywhere.
;ct)id you think
bnngthem ?
This was said with n. smile, and
in a tone so unlike his mother, that
the child looked up again into her
face with surprise that was, as Mrs.
Barton plainly saw, mingled with
" Do you want anything else ?'
she asked.
" No, mama," he replied cheef-'
fully ; "I can dress myself now."
This first little effort was crown
ed with the most encouraging re
sults to the mother; she felt a deep
peace settling in her bosom, the
conciousness of haivng gained a
true victory over tendencies of both
her own heart and that of her boy.
It was a little act, but it was the
first-fruits ; and the gathering even
of so small a harvest was sweet to
her spirit.
i or the first time in many months
the breakfast-tftble was pleasant
to all, Henry never once interrupt
ed trie conversation that passed at
intervals between his father and
. 1 TTT1 1 i , r-
motner. v hen ne asked lor any
thing it was in a way pleasing to
all. Unce of twice Mrs, Barton
found it necessary to correct some
little fault in manner, but the way
in Which she did it did not in the
least disturb her child's temper, and
instead of not seeming to hear her
words, as had almost always been
the case, Ac regarded all that ions
said and tried to do as she icished.
" There is a wonderful power in
gentle words," remarked Mr. Bar
ton to his Wife, after Henry had
left the table.
" Yes wonderful indeed ; their
effect surprises me."
"Love is strong."
Days, weeks, months, and years
Went by; during all this time the
mother continued to strive very
earnestly with herself', and very
kindly with her child. The happi
est results followed ; the fretful,
passionate, disorderly hoy became

A friend of oars has been to

mocking bird and goes off1 in the

taste to import the finest mocking
bird we have seen 1ft Oregon. It
fills the air all arouhd the Carter

power than Beach's brass band,

calm as a successful office holder af

Science and War. The Lorn
don Peace Society has for some
years past been actively promul
gating its views Oh the Continent
of Europe, fls well as at home.
Its foreign auxiliaries arc now
(aided by increasing popular in
telligence) developing into active
and influential associations with A
valuable literature of their own.
From a r eceht eloquent address by
M. Frederick Passy, Secretary of
one of these continental bodies (the
Paris League of Peace,) we ex-
tract the following striking allu
sion to the effect on warfare of the
modern scientific improvements :
" YY ar used to be a duel ; a fright

Was still something even amid the
most fearful onslaughts of brute
force. He felt that it Was so and
was proud of it. But in ouf own
day, science has advanced, and
has brought to perfection not only
the arts of production but those of
slaughter. She has reduced war
almost suddenly to a mere mechan

butchery !' as a contemprary wri
ter (31. Gueroult, in the Opinion
jationale) has energetically ex
claimed. W e now make use of

all conflict itself, disappears. We

can form some idea ,of the great

no limit to which our commercial

natural laws, will soon
make us the greatest commercial
nation upon the globe. A West-

at a New York banqnet, a few
days since, in a speech glorifying

and ViefJna would eventually be
compelled to come to city of Law
