Nothing at all in the paper to-day 1 To be sare there's a Ionian died of atftr* vaiion, Fell down in the street—as so many may In this very prosperous Christian nation, Or two young girls, with some inward grief Maddened have plunged into the inky waters, Or n father has learnt his sonVa thief— Or a mother beeu robbed of ene of her daughters.

Set riirht up to the fire. marm. Hands cold't Well, just run 'em in Bill's hair—Wo keep it long a-purpose.' Bill presented bis shaggy hair, but I dtcliued with an iuvoluntary shud der. Lawk, if she hain't actually shiv ering,' oried Mrs. Burke. 'Bring in some more wood. Here, take this hot corn dodger in your lap—its as good as a soapstone.' A frightful squall announced the execution of the rooster, and shortly afterwards he was bouncing about in a tour quart kettle, hung over the tire, and Sal returned to her churn, but the extraordinary visitor must have made her nervous, for sho up set the concern, and butter and but ter milk went swimming over the floor. Grab the ladle, Bill,' cried Mrs. Burke, and help dip it up. Take kcer—don't put your snarl of hair in. Strange how folks will bo so nasty. Dick, do keep your feet out of the butter-milk, it wont be fit for the pigs when tho butter is getliered. Drive that ben «ut, quick, she has picked up a pound ol butter, aready. There, Sal, do try and churn a leetlo more keerful. II you are going to be spliced ter morrer, yoa needn't go crazy about it.' I advise you to dry up,' remarked the bride elect, thumping away at the chtr ». By the time I had got fairly warm dinner was ready, and you may be sure that I did not injure myself by over-eating. Nii^ht camo on early, and after a social chat about, the event of tho morrow, I signified my desire to re-j tire. to­ Nothing at all the paper to day But the births and bankrupteiM, deaths and marriages, But life's events in the old survey, With Virtue begging, and Vice in car riages: And kindly hearts under ermine gowns, And wicked breasts under hodden gray, For goodness belongs not only to clowns, And o'er others than lords* does Sin bear sway. But what do I read I "Drowned! wreeked Did I say There was nothing at all in the paper to day FRONTIER WEDDING. The following discription .of a frontier wedding is probably over drawn but as it is little racy, it will bear being reproduced at this %ime: One day my husband received a summons to Burke's settlement, to unite a couple in the bonds of wed lock. It was especially requested that his wife should accott pauy hitn, as he should be expected to retnaiu all night, an if partake of the festiv ities. It was twenty miles to the settle ment, and we i cached the log house of Mr. Burke, tbo father of the ex pected bride, about uoon. A doxen tow-haired children were at the door awaiting our arrival. They telegraph ed the news instantly. 'Marin! inarm hyais the elder and his wooian They're nothiug but common folks She's got a man's hat on, and a turky wing in front of it his nose is jist loike dad's, as crooked as a cow-horn squash.' Alas for Mr. Morrisou's aquiline nose, of which he was just a littb vain. Sam ened a shrill femalo voice from the interior of the cabin, 'run ont and grab tbe rooster, and I'll slap him iuto the pot. Sal, yon quit that churnin' and sweep tte floor. Kick that coru dodger under the bed. Bill, you wipe the taller out of tho cheer fur the elder's wife, and bo spry about it.' Further remarks were cut short by our entrance. Mrs. Burke, in calico short gown, blue petticoat auil baro ieet, otiue forward, wiping her face with her apron. v 4 How do you do, elder IIow d'ye ltd, raarm? Must i-Seuse my head— way We generally uso tho ladder.' I was duly commiserated, and at last got to bed. The less said about that, night tho better. Bill and Dick and four others slept in the same room with us, and made the air vo cal with their snoring. I bill asleep and dreamed I was just being shot from the muzzle of a columbiad, and was awakened by Mr. Morrison, who informed me it was morning. The marriage was to take place before breakfast, and Sally was al ready clad in her bridal robes when 1 descended he ladder. Sho was magnificent in groen cali co over a crinoline full four inches larger than the rest ol her apparel, a white apron with red strings, blue stockings, a yellow neck ribbon, and white cotton gloves. Her reddish hair was fastened in a pug hchiud, and was well adorned with tho tail feathers of the defunct rooster before mentioned. When it was announced that Lem Lord, the groom, was coining, Sally dived behind a coverlet, which had beeu hung across one corner of the room, to conceal sundry pots and kettles, and refused to come forth. Mr. Lord lilted one corner of the curtain and peeped in, but quiokl) retreated, followed by a stew-pan and a few sharp words from Sally, advising him to mind his own busi ness. Lemuel was dressed in bluo, with bright buttons. The entire suit haa been made lor his grand lather, on a similar occsion. His hair was well greased with tallow, and his huge foot incased in skin pumps. Very soon the company began to gather, and the room was well filled. Now, elder,' said the bridegroom 'Dive ahead I waut it done up nice I'm able to pay for the job do you hear Come, father, trot out your gal.' But Sally refused to be trotted. She would be married where sho was or not at all. We urged and coaxed but she was firm and it was finally concluded to let her have her own way. Mr. Morrison arose, the happy couple joined hands through the rent in the corerlet, and the ceremo ny proceeded. Just as Mr. Morri son was asking Lemuel, 'Will you have the woman,' etc., down came the coverlet, enveloping bridegroom, and pastor, filling the house with dust. Dick had been up in the loft and cut tho strings which held it. Mr. Morrison crawled out, looking decidedly sheepish, and Sally was obliged to be married openly. To the momentous quostion, Lemuel re sponded: 'To be sure what else did 1 come hero for And Sally replied* Taas, if ybn mHst know.' Y 'Salute rison, 1 your bride, said Mr. Mor­ whuu all was over. I'm ready to do any thing® elder,' said Lemuel,' but skin me, it I know about that ,sir. Just show me how, and I'll do it it it kills ine. My husband drew back nervously, but Sally advanced, threw her arms abound his neck, and gave hiin a kiss that made the very windows clatter. I vutn, if I don't ditto!' cried Lemuel, and hastily taking a huge bite from a piece of maple sugar that ho drew from his pocket, he made a dash at me, smashed my collar, and' broke my watch-guard into a dozen pieces, tore my hair down, aud suo ceaded in plauting a kiss on my nose, greatly to the delight of the compa ny. Xow, elder, what is the damages? Don't be afeered to speak.' 'Whatever you please, said Mr. Morrison. Lemnel produced a piece of fur. 'There, eldet,' said he, 'there's a piece of muskrat skin and out in the shed is two heads of cabbage and you're welcome to the whole of it. My husband bowed his thanks, the young fulks went to dancing, Mrs. Burke went to getting breakfast, and at my earnest request, Mr. Morrison got our horse, and we bade them adiew. I never should have lived through another meal in that bouse. I have since heard that Mr. Lord said that it he had sctm the elder's wilo before ho married, Sally might have gone to tho dickens.. Alas, it might have been A CRITICISM. Jaok and Giil went up tli3 hill, To get a pail ot' water Jaok fell down and broke his erowo, And Gill eome tumbling after. In conducting a i Sal lighted a pitch knot, and climb- I ed a ladder in one corner of the room I hesitated. Come on,' cried she, 'don't be afraid. Sam, and Bill, and Dick, all of vou duck your heads while the elder's wife goes up. Look out fer the loose boards, Marm, and mind, or you'll smash your brains out agin that beam. Take care of the bole whero the chimbley comes up. ITer warning came too late. 1 caught my toot in the end of a board stumbled, and fell headlong through what appeared to be inter minable space, but it was only to the room I hail just left, where I was saved lroni destruction by Bill, who caught me in his arms and .Jet me on my feet, remarking— 'What made you como that criticism oil this beautiful poem, we shall first attend to whal may bo called tho rythmical and dynamical qualities ot the verse. Observe tho perfect measure: Jack and Gill went np the hill. The tim part of tho first foot is lackiug, but that is fully oomponsat ed in the next verse, is hypercatalec tic To get a pafl of water. The er in this iustanca would ex aotly fill the incomplete foot of the first verse, thus producing a grand iambic diameter, and leaving the seo and verso a delightful tripody. Tho next two verses display the satno wonderful poetic structure Jack fell doirn nnd broke his crown, And Giil come tumbling after. Observe the pleasing highly mu« sioal effect produce by the addition of tho fractional foot er: And Gill come tumbling after. Let us now turn our attention to what are really tho essential ele ments of poetry—the nature of th« thought and quality of the sentiment. First, the thought. Ail truo poetry is highly imaginative. This is highly imaginative. Jack and Gill never went up the hill to get a pail of wa ter. The poet imagined they did and in this eonsist, very largely, its poetry. Again, Jack didn't fall down and break his crown, and Gill come tumbling alter. The poot simply imagined all this, and henue it is all tho more poetic. Again, this is an upward flight ot the imagi nation Jack and Gill went up the lull. They also wont up to get wa ter, which makes the conception still more striking. It would have been commonplaco and matter of fact to go down the hill lor water. Notice that in the next line it is not the imagination that falls, but Jack—Jack fell down. Notice, too, tho result. He did not break tho connection of tho story he did not eveu break tho flight ot the poet'a laucy he simply broke las crown. We may suppose it was afterward. We have as good a right to suppos® ibis as tho poet had to imagine it broken at all. And now tho catastrophe: And Gill eome tumbling after. This is perfectly harmonious. W« should naturally have expected it. We may suppose that Gill was lean ing on Jack, and that, therefore," when Jack tell, Gill, by necessity, went tumbling after or, wo may suppose that Gill loved Jaok inofft than we can tell, aud that, when she saw him fall and break his crown, ill a fit* ot sheer desperation she threw herself atter him. Either hypothesis would tullv account for th'S tacts, baj I am inclined to accept the latter, being more poetic and consonant with the pathetic nature of the scene.* —Toledo blade.
