grew tired of him, and said, “Father, you like a warm room, and that hurts my head. Won't you go to my brother, the baker?" The father went, and after he had been some time with the third son, he also found him troublesome, and said to him, " Father, the people run in and out here all day, as if it were a pigeon-house, and you can not have your noonday sleep; would you not be better off at my sister Kate's, near the town hall?'

The old man remarked how the wind blew, and said to himself, “ Yes, I will do so; I will go and try it with my danghter. Women have softer hearts." But after he had spent some time with his daughter, she grew weary of him, and said she was always so fearful, when her father went to Church or any where else, and was obliged to descend the steep stairs, and at her sister Elizabeth's there were no stairs to descend, as she lived on the ground floor.

For the sake of peace the old man arsented, and went to his other daughter. But after some time, she too was tired of him, and told him by a third person, that her house near the water was too damp for a man who suffered with gout, and her sister, the grave-digger's wife, at St. John's, had much drier lodgings. The old man himself thought she was right, and went outside the gate to his youngest daughter, Helen. But after he had been three days with her, her little

son said to his grandfather, “ Mother said yesterday to consin Elizabeth, that there was no better chamber for you, than such a one as father digs." These words broke the old man's heart, so tbat he sank back in his chair and died.

The Brewer's COACHMAN.—The following was written by a brewer's daughter on her father's discharging his coachman for getting in liquor:

Ilonest William, an easy and good-natured fellow,
Would a little too often get a little too mellow;
Body coachman was he to an eminent brewer,
No better e'er sat on a box, to be sure;
His coach he kept clean-no mother or nurses
Took more care of their babes than he took of his horses;
He had these, ily, and fifty good qualities more,
But the business of tippling could ne'er be got v'er;
So his master effe ctually mended the matter
By hiring a man who drank Dothing-out water.
Now, William, says be, you see the plaid case,
Hlad you drank as he does, you 'd have kept a good place.
Drink water! quoth William-had all men done bo
You ne'er would have wanted a coachman, I trow;
For 't is soakers like me, whom you load with reproaches,
That enable you browers to ride in your coaches.
