REMINISCENCES 0? CHILDHOOD. ?'Good night!" A loud clear voice from the top of the stairs said that; it wa*> Tommy's, "Dood night !" murmurs a little something from the trundie-bed?a little something we call Jenny, that fills a very laige place in the centre of one or two pretty large hearts. "Good night!" lisps a little fellow iu a plaid ritl? dress. who was christened Willie about six years ago. Now I lav me down to Meep I pray the Lord ibv soul to keep: If I should die btfore 1 w-a-k-e"'? and the ?mall bundle in the t?undle-bed ha? dropped ofl to sleep. but an angel will finish the broken prayer for her, and it will go up sooner than many long-winded petitions that set out a great while before it. And s? it was '-Good night'' all arjund the old homestead; and very sweet music is made, too, in the twilight, und very pkasant melody it makes now as we think of it; for it was not yesterday, nor the day before, but along time a^o?so long that Tommy n Thomas somebody, Esq., and ha? forgotten he waseveraboy, and wore what the bravest and the richett of us can never wear but one.; if we try?the first pair of boots; go long ago that Willie must stoop when he crosses the threshold; so long ago that Jen ny has gone the w.?y of the old prayer she was saying?for. saying another, she did as boforc, fell asleep as she ; aid it, and waked no more. Good nignt to thee. Jenny?good night! And so it was good night all around the h 'use, and the children hul gone though the iv<?ry gate, alw.'.ys left a little ajir for them? turough into the land of Dreams: or through the goldc.n one they call "Beautiful, inlothe land of Angels. So they are all scattered and gone, and the old hou^e is tenant less, and there is nobody there to say god night, and nothing but the rain can come iu, and the birds that have built them a nest among the broken stones of the hearth, and the sheep that take shelter from the pitiless storm under the wall that is whole; aud yet now we think of it. there is a wondci ful dignity about the old place. Its rooms were not very spaeiou*; precious little tapestry adorned the walls: the caves were low, and tuos&y, and gray; but did we not begin to live, and to love, and to hope, there ? Did not the old homestead have very much to do with the fashioning of our thoughts ? Was it not. as it were, an l.uuible mould, for the shaping of our fancies? Did wo not bear away with us, wherever we went, a cabinct of pictures that were painted there ' Have you forgotten what a shapeless thing it was that used to lurk in the dark at the tip of the stairs, always in wait to catch you on your way to bed. but tever do ing it' And what long-drawn sighs used to come moaning down the garret, and what trail ing garment-rustled along the garret floor! Ilow we fancied it was a iady ia a cattle?a lady fair and young?and we, so many cham pions to sound the bugle at the gate, and bear her safe away. For then we hal r<"id "The .Scottish Chief-" and "Thaddeus < f Warsaw'' :?! i the Duke of G!o?ter saw fewer Richin inds in the field than there were Wallaces of us then?each o:iu with a Marmion or Helen to bless him. Th;;n the tale that !>? ?lly told us round the kitchen fire. wi>?" he had "d"tie up1- the work and "done up'' her hair. ai:d 3wept up the hearth, and sat down to her sewing. Tuen it was u-e gat he re 1 round, and besought her for a story?of gho^t- or witches, or fairie- or little, wonderful children that lived a long time ago, a:.d bccamc very b autiiul. or very brave, or very something that we longed to be How wo would have delighted to be Robin llood, and livo in the woods, and wear an array of Kendall greeu.

But when she tol l us of ghosts in white that made no footfall when they walked; of their hands, h<?w cold they were; ot their laugh, how glittering and ghastly it was?have you forgot ten how we drew a little nearer, as the tale wei.ton, and thought the light was burning dim and blue, and begged her to stir the sleeping fire, and dare not look behind us where the shadows were, and fancied something sighed ar spoke, and syllabled our names ' La li voice subsided to a whisper?all but Dolly t; aud she went on, with castles grim, and spectres dim, and dungeon? deep, and l:idies fair, while her glittering needle darted in and out along the lengthened hem At last, one of us is thronged up -n her lap; and another b< gs to lay his head therein; and still the tales go on. The clock is on the stroke of nine, and how we dreaded the last shrill chime ! It came, and we went reluctantly to bed. How dark tho hall was: an 1 the door mu-t be left upeu a little, and "Doliy, arc you there?'' and "Dolly g >od night."' and Doliy something, just to hear her speak, came from uuder the quilts we had drawn over our heads, and we wondered what rattled the winder, and what .-hook the bed, and didn t you feel something cold, or hear Something step, and how wc all wished we were asleep, or it was morning, or the sun shone all aght How we suffered then and nobody knew it. and nobody bade us be brave. Well, years hav e parsed, but we build castles us wc did then, and feci just such great cold shadows a-s us^l to lurk in the hall, aud people them with forms no eye has ever seen. The memory should not be a tomb, a place for ;hosts to revisit the glimp.-es of the m ?on in, Dut a beautiful pla^e, full of recollections of >unshine and loveliness. There should be something beautiful about a lomestcad?a beautiful picture, a beautiful irook, a beautiful tree. A memory with glo mus maples in it,and a running stream, and an jld well of crystal water, and a root with a rine on it, and eaves with birds iu them, and i pasture full of daisies?what a lovely place ,t must be, iudced, to think that in January ne can always have a June; in an Arabia Petra-, an "Araby the Ble-t" Mothers always look beautiful to children; hey make a picture for memory s cabinet ;hat "old masters'" never equalled. But then, hey should be in a beautiful setting. Let :h ">rebe a broad hearth and an amr><e fire place in the old homestead, if you do shut up .be fire in iron boxes, or look at it through a jr-te. Get a cord or two of old maple, aud a landful or two of old beach for afeu de joiet ind a basket or two of old-fashioned chips, and ceep them ail for winter birth-days and Christ nas eves, and New Years nights; and get an dd-fashioncd body to build an old-fashioned ire, and blow out the candles or "turn off he gas, and grather within the circle of the icarth light, a*d tell pleasant tales, and smile ileasant smile?. So you will give the childien lumething beautiful to remember, for believe | is, such a picture in such a light will never ade out from the God-woveu canvass that langs in the heart. An Amcsing Incident?A few evenings ' itice an incident occurred during the perform | knee at the Boston Museum, which drew large- ; y on the ludicrous. A jolly tar in the par [uette. finding the ladies under his convoy uffering from thirst, went out, but soon re urn ed with a bottle of spruce beer and a i glass, which were smuggled in the capacious K>soin of his blue shirt.

Paiwrt'LLT Neat.?There nro extremes In almost everything There is nuoh a ibiDg us absolute slovenliness on the one hard aud \ painful neatness on the other?**oth should be .avoided.

Eccentricities or CosrruE.?There is n*? jwirt of our costume, either male or female, which has not aire tdy parted from one extreme of absurdity to another, and been most ad inired at the highest point. Coati have been wo-n with voluminous skirts dangling about the wearer s heels, and with scanty luppel.-, descending -ix inches below the waist. C*w?t sleeves at one time fitted skin tight, and more than once have been so wide as to swe? p th*) ground. Flapped w;'.i*t-eoats. which, iu the time ofUeorge I., reached nearly to the stock ings. were soon cut w short as to be nearer to the arm-pits than the thigh. Theeloae fitting, tightly strapped trousers contrast ludicrously with the trunk hose of the -ixteeuth century, stuffed out with five or *ix pounds of bran, to sueh an extent that, a-" a llarlien manuscript tell-' u-. alterations had to be mad* in Parlia ment ilou-e, so as to afford additional accom modations for the members' ce its. it i? re lated that a fast man of the time, on rising to conclude a visit of ceremony, had the tuisi'or tune to damage bis nether integuments, by a protruding nail in his chair?so th t ly the time he gained the door, the cscape oi bran was so rapid as to cause a coll ape 3. It m.iy have been that -imilir mi-haj>> caused th?? substitution of wool or hair for bran, which ?afterwar Is became common. Holmes, in bis "Notes of Dres?," say*: " A law was made against such as did stuff their ' bryches' to make tiiom stand out; whereas, when a certain prisoner (in these ti.ues) was accused for wearing these brych?s contrary to law. he began to excuse himself of the offence, a^ endeavored, little and little, to discharge himself of that which he did wear within them. He drew out a pair of sheets, two tablecloths, ten napkins, four shirts, a bru.h, a ^lass. a comb, and a night cap, and other things of use, saying 'lour lordship may understand that, because I have no safer storehouse, these pockets d> serve me for a room to lay my goods in; and though it be a strait prison, yet it is a storehouse big enough for tbein. for I have many things more yet of value within them.' And so his discharge was accepted and well laughed at." Remarkable Occirresce.?Acireumstance of a somewhat extraordinary character occur red a short time since in one of the fluuri-hing towns of the midland counties. A clergyman died, and his wife and daughters. 011 the third day after his decease, recollecting that, no likeness remained, it was agreed, ere the grave closed over him. that the body should be enshrouded and a portrait taken. A young l.tdy of some professional celebrity was en gaged for the task. She, with the a-vststanco of the attendant, took off the shroud and placed th? body in the requisite posture; but. other duties requiring the artist's attention, the sketeli was deferred till noon. About twelve o'clock, at the foot of the bed. the lady com menced and went through an hour'a work on this image of death. At this stage of the pro ceedings, by some unaccountable motion, the head of the death-like Sgure fell on the .-ide Nothing daunted, the artist carefully took the head to rcplaoe ir. when, lo " the eyes open ed, and staring her full in the face, the dead inquired, 44 Who are you?" The young pro fessional. with"Ut trepidation, took the band age from his head and ruhbed bis neck. He immediately saw the shroud, and laughed im moderately The artist quietly called the family; their joy may be imagined, but can not be described That evening, bo who bad Iain three days in his shroud, bemoaned by mother and sistera with agonising tears, glad dened their hearts by taking his accustomed plaoe at the tea-table, and at this moment is making an excursion in North Wales.?lied I'ord {England) Tt mss. A Petrified India* ?While engaged in rxcavating recently upon the Milwaukee and La| Crosse Railroad, near Schlessengerville. Iowa, the workmen came upon the petrified remains of an Indian, and with the reintini some singular relics of olden times. The body was perfect, not having suffered by decay. His height at the present t me would be con sidered gigantic, measuring seven feet two inches. On his breast was a plate of copper, on which were engraved numerous hierogiv phics, the meaning of which can hardly be imagined. But there they are. a record of the past Could these hieroglyphics, be read, they might, perhaps unveil some of the mystery which hangs like a dark cloud over the red man. An arrow of considerable strength and of very curious construction was also found with him, and especially invites the attention of antiquarians. Rich Joke.?The Syracuse Standard tells a story of a resident of that city, "a staid, middle-aged gentleman, the father of a large tamily of children,'' having got into a laugh able scrape recently, in this way: '?H* had taken a letter from the office di rected to his name, which being somewhat illegible, he took home for his wife and daughter to decipher. It turned out to be a letter informing him that be had just become the father of a fiue child, weighing nine pounds without its clothes; that its fond mother was much better than could be expeeted,' and earnestly requesting him to visit bis loving wife and offspring on the eoming Saturday, and brinj with him four diaper pins, a few yards of flannel, and a number or other baby t Lings ' The lesson the old gentleman learned was. not to carry any letters home for his wife to read till be was satiated of their eoa taato." Or* Advice.?Miss ?? says she would like very much to do something so as to hava her ?l name in the paper." We hare advised hsr to get some one to hare ku name put ia with hers.
