EVENING STAR! a A -? ?.. . ? --- , THX CAJLXLK8S WORD. ET IU. A word is ringing through my bralnr Jt was not meanito give me pain, It had no ttmf to bid it stay, When other thing* had pawed away; It hid no meaning more than all, Which in an idle hour may fldl; It was, when first the sound I heard, A lightiyotteT'd, carelees word. That word?O, It doth haunt me now, In scenes of joy, in scenes of woe; Bv night, by day, in sun or shade, With the half smile that gently play'd Reproachfully, and gave tha sound Eternal power through life to wound. There is no voice I ever heard So deeply fixed as that one word. When in the laughing crowd some tone, Like those whose joyous sound ts gone, 8trike* on my ear. I shrink?'tis then The careless word comes back again. When all alone I sit and gate Upon the cheerful home-tire blaze, Lo' freshly, as when first 'twas beard, Returns that lightly uttered word. When dreams bring bark the day* of oiu, With all that wishes could not hold , And from my feverish couch I start To press a shadow to my heart? Amid its besting echoes clear. That little word 1 seem to hear \ In vain I say, while it is heard. Why weep f?'twas but a foolish word. It romea?and with it comes the tear>. The hopes, the joys of former years i Forgotten smiles, forgotten looks. Thick as dead leaves on autumn brooks, And all as Joyless, though th*y were The br^htest things life's spring could share O ' would to God 1 ne'er had heard That lightly uttered, careless word I* Search op a HrsEAfn a*d Fathek.? About four o'clock ou Thursday afternoon, there called at the office of Justice McAllis ter. on Fell'* Point, a female, apparently about forty years of age. accompanied by throe lit tle children, the eldest of whom seemed to be about eleven years old. She stated to the magistrate that she had been msrrted for thir teen yean, and that her husband had always treated her with uniform kindness until now, when he rarely comes to his home, and when he does only to speak a few words to the chil dren without taking any notice of the wifo. lie is a mariner, and returned to the city a week ago after a sea voyage, and took board at another house. The wife says that his mind, has been peteowd against her by another cf her own "ex. and now he wishes to deprive her of herchildren and make her misery complete, or he would go away without lea\ ing the menu.* for their support. She stated that she wa* in formed he had another wife in New York, and she feared that he wanted to take the chil dren to that eity. The magistrate informed her that her hus band had called upon him for advice regarding the re-possession of the children, but that h<} had alvised him to employ legal conn-el for the settlement of his difficulties, as they did XJot come under his jurisdiction. The female was of genteel appearance, and her children looked as it they had had a mother's csre. There should be no law to take from a mother her children if her conduct is good, and the father should be made to support them, wheth er willing or not. The cau?e of complaint againtt the wife was not stated, though she frankly confessed that after thirteen years of confidence, the conduct of the husband wa? such now that she is afraid to trust him. This is a strange world in which we live, but thero can be no happiness in after life for a man who wantonly leaves to depend upon the world her, above all others, whom he snould cherish and protect.?bolt American. The Thiestt Maw.?A correspondent of the Hew York Day Book tells the following anti Jig uor story: An exceedingly'thirsty individual went imo ?nme place ana inquired for agla* of brandy ?He wai told they did not keep the proscribed article, whereupon he stated in the most pitiful strains the extent and desperate nature of his thirst. A person standing by said to him. "Do you see that counter? "Yes, eagerly answered the thirsty indi vidual. '?Well, sir.'" he continued, "you place a shil ling on that eouuter. No one will see you?no one will kbow that you put it there, but the shilling will disappear soon after you turn from It. After you have left the shilling, go out doors and down the street to the first corner, then turn to the right and go up the street until you come to an alley: then follow the alley un til you arrive at a blacksmith's shop. Open the door and enter the shop, and in one corner ?ou will see a desk. tnd in that you will find a bottlo of brandy and a cup. Take adrink, und leave everything as you find it." ' Gossip is a thing that thrives amaxingly on minced meats, daintily conveyed into its mouth with a pap spoon ; but set a substantial fare bofore it, and let it feed itself with a l*dle, and within four, and twenty h<>ura it will lie at your feet, dead of a surfeit.
