"With frolicsome freaks,
And rosy, red cheek,
3Iy baby lies waiting for me;
He thinks not of crying,
J3ut ever is trying
To sing a glad tong in lia glee.
His parted lips show
Three teeth in a row.,
As white and as precious as pearln;
And Ids soft, silken hair
O'er his forehead so fair
Palls dn dark, thick-clustering curls.
His ej"es, like two stars,
Peep out from the bars
Of his crib, as he watches for me,
And his pink little toes,
Down under the clothes,
Are kicking about to be free.
I'm coming, my boy!
!My treasure. m3T joy!
You shall wait no longer for me,
33 ut we'll up and away,
And be merry and gay,
Out under the .Id applo tree.

Shoalwater Bay Items.
Brucepokt, Nov. 19, 1S73.
Thinking that perhaps a few words
from this place might not prove un
interesting to some of your readers, I
will jot down an item or so. Items
of interest, however, must be consid
ered something like angel visitants:
"Few, and far between."
The most interesting thing to the
Oystermen at present is, or rather has
been, the loading of five large schoon
ers, which have carried out of the
bay between twenty-five and thirty
thousand bushels of oysters. Times
otherwise are dull, for the busy sea
son for the Oystermen is ended, and
the boats are safely anchored and the
boatmen ready for the AVinters' rest,
or for any amusement that may come
in the way.
A great deal has been said and
written about Oystering, and very
generally by those that know nothing
about the matter. A person to real
ize the toil and hardships of an Oys
terman's life, will have to undergo it
first. The most sensible article that
we have seen upon the subject for a
long time, was in, one of the last
weeks' issues of the Astorian, sug
gesting the idea of consolidating the
interests of Oystermen for their own
mutual advantage. That article stat
ed the question very clearly, and ev
ery man on the bay should read it,
and act upon the suggestions therein
Bruceport contains some fifteen or
twentyOystermen, a number of whom
have interesting families, and we be
lieve our little community may be
classed as pleasant and agreeable as
any that can be found, but for fear I
am trespassing on good nature, and
taking up too much of your space, I
will bid you good bye. a. x. e.
" A. X. E." is welcomed, and his agreeable
letter from that pleasant little community ho
spoaks of is so much like ono of those angel
visits roferrod to, that we hope howillwrito
again soon, and not bo brief for fear of trespass
ing upon our time and space, which should bo
a devoted to tho intorests of Shoalwater bay
as to thoso of any locality in tho coast chain,
Wo aim no higher honors than to possess the
respect of such communities, and champion
their cause. Editok.
