VI-MY WIFE AND THE PAIR OF SHOES, A FELLOW, famous from his birth. Tor witty tricks sir, and for mirth,     * Once roamed about a country fair, A.nd carry'd in hii hand a pair Of shoes; That they were watei�proof, ht swore, lad never once had they been wore Upon the toes. From what he said there was no doubt But that the shoes were very good; Indeed he swore they'd ne'er wear out, Let them be trod in how they would. To heir this fellow talk and joke, ' A gaping crowd soon gathered round him, Swallowing the very words he spoke, For none with questions could confound him. ' Gemmen,' says he, ' I crary here A pair of shoes for him to wear Who will upon the gospel swear Hii lawful wife he does not fear.' \   Conscience, that fierce disarming pow'r, Made many of them turn quite sour. At if the de'il possessed them;   . Indeed there was not one that could Swear even by his flesh and blood , Hii rib, sir, had not dress'd .him.    Again the shoes the fellow wav'd in air, -But all was disappointment and despair, ' Some time elapsed-at length a clown appear'd; Who said he nothing fear*d; ' Nothing,' the fellow cried,' you have a wife f ' I hare, and love her as my life; She's comely, sprightly, dresses tight and clean, And looks, I think the very shoes I've seen Will fit-~ Her feet.' * You're sure,' the wag replied, 'you're speaking truth t" ' Upon my soul I an't afeard of Kuth', The bumpkin cried, and with a frown Offered to back his answer with a crown.  Then swear it,' quoth the wag, ' upon this book,* John doff d his hat, and straight the oath he took � And then, with simp'ring jaws, and goggle eyes, He scratched his mopsy-head, and claim'd the prize. i 'Take thou the shoes,' the wag replied anon, ' For thou dost certainly deserve them, John; But to preserve them, Let me advise you thus, you take Of blacking, John, this patent cake. And frequently,'and freely use The liquid it will make about the shoes.' ' Odds rabbit it 1' tae,bumpkin, said, Look d at his bran-span coat, and scratched his head, ' Why what's the matter V gravely ask'd the wag; 'Why now I think on't, if I take the blacking, And hap to di>t my pocket with the same;' What then T friend John.'-.'Odds clouts, my dame Would give me what she calls & whacking.' John now becomes the public butt-the wag, � Popping the shoes into a bag, ezclaim'd, " Go home and let thy courage be reclaim'd. And learn from me, my friead, it is my plan, That any man, Whether he lives in poverty or riches. Before he puts those shoes upon his feet. Shall wear, what makes the married man complete.

T No. sR ALL-BUTT. THE PILLOW OF ROSES. ' (Centin*ed.) Mary blushed crimson aad started forward with an impulse to prevent the act, but when she saw that her royal visitor bad only secured a seat without exposing the bed or the cushion concealed on it, she became more composed, for it was no uncommon thing for Catherine to visit the chamber of her ward, whom she ever treated with that familiarity and kindness due to a favourite child. Catherine did not seem to observe the embarrassment or vague, answers with which her gentle inquiries were received, but she continued to converse gently and with that easy flow of words which she: could command at will, for tt* duration of half an hour. Bat occasionally | lDgratltude which he migbtsu'specther of, all thronged umo ope leas embarrassed than the young queen might have {he6r mlDd< Bnd ahe ht^ft0 De rob,d for &e to�. view, apprehensively and in tears. Catherine de Medicis saw the boy as he passed' beneath her dressing-room window, carefully guarding his precious burthen. She smiled net as she did when surrounded by the courtiers of Henry II., bat her face took one of those' cold sneering smiles that sometimes haunted it in solitude, but only in solitude. ' He wiU sleep on it to-night, or my Rose of Scotland has less influence than I suspect/ she said"inly. 'Well, let us hope that his rest may be long and pleasant.' If Mary Stuart was rendered sad by the completion of her task, how much deeper was the gloom that fell on that young heart when she remembered the interview which she had promised to the dauphin; the pain she would inflict the observed that she moved ber hands restlessly among the folds of velvet that almost enveloped ber, till at last an opening [was obtained which commanded a glimpse of the embroidered, pillow lying behind them, with the rose-leaves ^urstiag through the aperture through which they Tiaa been* pressed, The moment this was accomplished'Catherine complained of a slight headache, and asked for a drop of the flower-water that stood on Mary's toilet Mary rose to obtain the vase of perfumed water pointed out. That instant Catherine's hand was thrust through the curtains and buried deep in the cushion. When she withdrew it a tiny flask of crystal was in its grasp, empty, and with fragments of dead rose-leaves clinging to its damp meuta. An open casement was close at hand, the empty vial flashed through it, and when Mary tamed from her toilet, bearing the flower-water, she only observed that the face of Catherine de Medicis was paler than she had ever seen it before, and that her Land shook as she received the vase and dathad some of its contents] over her forehead, hastily, and as one eager to 'be relieved from pain. ' It was a sudden spasm, and will soon go off,' said the Queen of France, rising from the bed with a slight shudder and replacing the vase of flower-water on tbe toilet. ' Good morning, my fair roBe of Scotland. Adieu! but this room seems close]; let your women open another eisement, ma bellt.' And with these lightsome words she departed to her own* chamber. The moment she w�s alone Mary once more resumed th e task so pleasant and so often interrupted, but as she ual.'ed the cushion where it bad been left open, it seemed to her*-that  peifkmg stronger and more subtle than she hid eviT*>tl�ed before was emitted from the rose-leaves. The 'Ikbivur 'wnlch she had to perforin occupied scarcely Bve:mtouO�Si bht'aUckly sensation crept over her even 'then,'- ind-i'fce dung open the easement for more air. 1 It-'wa* na.'�hed*tlait. For three entire weeks Mary had been occupied on that single pillow, thinking of ber lover all tHtt time, and yet half_nersuading herself th�t it' was not Hot him she worked, weaving a thought of Kite with wry bod that glowed upon it, but never tHt^t mornlBgaltewing herself to thtnk that his crest conid be embroidered there by her own willing fingers. ItirasoverriowlUhe-doubt and toil of mental conflict-she had resolved at aN risks and every hazard to follow the sweet impulses her heart, to renounce the royal alliance "proposed by Trance, and seek in her own rude kingdom) aad with a subject regal by nature, the happiness :whlch � caa only be secured to woman through the affeetions. And now that the task was done, those crests woven together, and die tassels of threaded amethlst, emeralds and seed pearls fastened to aach corner, she was almostfsad-not thatshe hesitated to sendHtf-no, no 1 but it was " occupation gop�," something that net new and|iwert thoughts bud broodedtftvertillavery leaf and bud seemed a kindred spirit, whispering Of bim. Shi was almost sorrowful that her sweet task^wAS-nniihed. sMary tat-down-vhh the cushion on ber lap, and placing her paper'upon it wrota a few melodious and touching lines of verse; she fastened bar note amid the; rich embroidery with a ruby pin, and carefully enveloping the whole, sent it by bar page to tbe Scottish Ambassador, Mary was in her dressing-room when the dauphin came. He was very pale and walked unsteadily, as if a severe illness had just enfeebled his energies. When Mary arose and stepped forward to greet him he took her hand, in both his and gazed in her face, till the eyes which read ber down-east look grew more intensely mournful and filled with tears. ' I require no explanation,' he said gently,' nothing more than that sweet troubled look to convince my heart of it* entire desolation.' * Forgive sne,' said Mary Stuart, wlthjtouching humility, and the teats broke through those long, thick lashes as she bent and kissed the trembling hands that clasped hers, 'oh, forgive me 1' * What have 1 to forgive V replied Francis, in a tone which he vainly tried to render firm-kind and gentle it always was. ' What should I forgive? That you love another devotedly, almost-no-no-that were impossible, no one ever did, ever can love as I have. God grant that none may suffer as I have since last night 1 What shall I forgive f Nothing, nothing. If the human heart created its own impulses, then would you be blamable. But is this so t Can I with the utmost effort wrest tbe deep feelings which are killing me from my soul ? And if I, a man, aan-not do this, how should it be expected of one so gentle and loving, so-alas I Mary, this is a severe blow, bear with me, but remember! have nothing to fergive. Forgive me rather that I have so long tortured you with feelings that must disgust, pretensionsAr which you have hated me.' ' Oh, da not say that-torture, disgust with you-indeed I have never felt either; never known a feeling that was not kind and affectionate as-as-!-' ' A filter, you would say,' replied Francis in a low, broken voice.  ' Alas I hatred were better than that.' No, not as a sister, but better, better a thousand times,' said Mary, carried away by the warmth of hsr feelings and eager to prevent pain. 'No, it was myself, tbe reproaches of my own heart, so wayward, so miserable.' 'Tell me,'said the dauphin, making a strong effort to subdue the emotion that shook hla wnoie' frame,' what are your plans t How eta I aid. them f How prove the earnest and most powerful d�h-e of my souU that of promoting yonr happiness f Thongn it be to-seeryoanaomor#, to gjve away this hind myself,'I wilt not'flfnih la the duty.' 'It is our .wish,'said Jlary, turning very pale, and speaking wift difficulty, it is our wiak t� leave france.' ^ To leave Frescer* repeater the dauphin, in a voice of utter dismay, d ll  .....L".  i -J * Wejcould not be happy here. Mypeoplftsreelamorons for their queen'. Every way it would be best' Francis covend his face and remained silent, but evidently much agitated.J - ' We fear opposition front yoor mother, from the kiag, and would depart privately; but how to escape observation, how to elude the keen eye of Catherine de Medicis. I tremble to think of ouri position.' .:' Have apifear,' said the dauphin, in a firmer voice and uncovering her pale face,' I.will be your aomyauioa to tbe coast. They will never, suspect that yonr betrothed bus-band, one who loves you as his own life, would aid yon to J entove from hia prea.net for ever.'\ VARIBTIEi "The dauphin's eye kindled, and a slight colour broke into his cheek, but both indications of disturbed feeling vanished almost as soon as they appeared. ' But not as you love him/ he said, clasping her hand till it pained ber, and speaking almost in a whisper. ' Not as you love him.' Mary turned away her head and w.ept bitterly. ' I will not deceive you,' she murmured in a voice low and broken as his own, 'I dare not.' Maty could not go on, she felt the hand which held hers begin to shiver, and saw, even through the tears that blinded her, how deadly pale he was. The dolphin was obliged to draw her toward a seat, for his limbs treuvbled, and he felt that hit strength was giving way. ^ ' Go on," he said kindly, but still in a broken voice,' say that in words which I have hardly yet found courage to a l-mlt to my own heart; feeling in every nerve that you love another,, 1 yet tremble to hear it said. Oh, God 1 until this day fr'never guessed what poisoned arrows words and looks may become.' ' Do not talk so wildly, so unkindly,' pleaded the weep, lug sfirl. ^Unkindly ? did I speak ankJndly V he said, in a vdoe that was almost reproaabin), Tax IjjduKS >Mp Quixh Victoria.-A deputation of chiefs and. warriors from one of the tribes of Indians located on the lands at the head of Lake {Superior, was in New York, sn roufs to the Court of Queen Victoria, to lay before the Queen certain grievances tinder which their people are labouring.  The following account of them is from the New York Inquirer:-"These veritable and rugged sons of the forest^ with the wives of their two principal chiefs, come fully equipped and appointed with all the paraphernalia of war, hunting, travelling' wigwtm, Ac. The venerable 'patriarch at the head of the deputation is nearly TO years of.age, being the oldest warrior of his tribe; and having fought upon>the frontiers during the war between Great Britain and the United States, both his warriors, and himself have enjoyed the highest favour and confidence of the British government. A difference having existed for some .time between [the Cbippewas and the Upper Canadians, those warriors have been, delegated to lay their grievances before the Queen in person. Their locality is at tbe head of Lake Superior, the moat remote and isolated of any of the tribes of American Indians.  It waafa party of this tribe that accompanied Captain Back in part of his celebrated [expedition to the North Pole in search of his friend Capteia Ross.   Having never lived , near the shore of the lake, every object connected with civilisation is a matter of great curiosity to them.  Their interpreter says, that their astonishment upon) beholding a steam-boat for the first time was unbounded; and that in descending the locks of the Erie Canal, they went through a variety of heathen ceremonials to propitiate tbe Evil Spirit, who they firmly believed had an agency in causing the waters to sink or rise over hills and' valleys. What their wonder will be in witnessing the scenes of a play, or the wonderfnl exploits of the circus riders, remains to be known. They are, certainly, objects of great interest, and in fact the only Indians from that remote region of country that have ever been among as, or that in all probability ever will visit these parts again." ExnuORDiHMtT CiactmsTANCB-The brig Lord Byron, ofLimekitut, .when on bar voyage ia the end of last month frony the West Indies to Liverpool, suddenly sprang a leak without any apparent cause. It waa considered adviseable to reluct to Jamaica, and on the, cargo being taken put and the vessel examined, it was found that the damage was occasioned by a sword flab. The sword ar the bill of the tsh hid passed through the copper sheathing, then through tbe planking in a slanting direction to the extent of five inches, and also aboat eight or tea iaeaes into the dead wood of the keel, leaving an opening in tba planking in each side sufficient to admit tbe. band of a boy. A pleas of the sword retain td by the Captain ia six laches long, aad oae and a half lichee thick, of solid bona; bat a longer place remains in the heel. The strength of the sword-fish must be very great, and it may have been the cause of the, lots ef several vessels. Tiw vessel referred te was carried lata put with vary great difikalty^CatedMtaa Mtemrf.

They soon saw or heard him; and to his horror he found himself in a moment almost within the grasp of two large terrific bears, which iaatanily made at bim, aad in so furious a manner, that be had scarcely time to call upon God to save html : By some moans or other he eladed the hug of the first bear; but he was hopeless of being able to avoid or escape from the claws and frightful teeth displayed ia the extended jaws of the second, when a kind of impulse, for which he could not account, caused him to raise hit arm, aad to aim a blow at the monster with the battle which hsr still held in his hand. This, striking against the teeth of the aaima), was dashed to pieces with a great crash, and the braady flying into the mouth aad eyes of tbe astonished bear, so frightened him is well as his companion, that, growling loudly, thay both made off into the jungle.- Semrema its 6eyl*Vh
