GO ING TO CHURCH.

How neat and nice this lit tle boy and his sis ter look, go ing in their Sun day clothes to church! The lit tle girl has, I dare say, her prayer book in her bag, and her bro ther has his un der his arm. They seem by their fa ces, to be good chil dren, and ap pear ve ry fond of each oth er. They have been taught by their kind pa rents, that it is their du ty to at tend di vine wor ship, and pray to God, and the lit tle girl is point ing out to her broth er the poor old wo man on her way to church, and seems to be prais ing her good ness.

PRET TY POLL.

Up on my word, this is a ve ry pret ty look ing par rot, and the children seem much pleas ed with it. I hope they ne ver play a ny tricks with it, or try to tease it, for par rots when an gry can bite pret ty hard. Poll and her young friends seem to be quite on good terms, but I should not like to have my fin ger so near her bill, unless I were cer tain of her be ing in a good hu mour. Par rots a muse us much by their be ing able to learn to talk far bet ter than a ny o ther bird.

THE FLOW ER GAR DEN.

What a pret ty scene a flow er gar den af fords! Roses, tu lips, wall flowers, and ma ny oth ers, a like pleasing to the sight and the smell. The lit tle boy de serves to en joy all the plea sure that the gar den can pro cure him; for he is at work with his tools, his spade, his bar row, and his roll ing stone, which shews a de sire of mak ing him self use ful. I be lieve, too, he has kind ly gi ven his eld est sis ter the rose at which she is smell ing, and he will I have no doubt, help the young est in fill ing her bas ket.

THE NEW DOLL.

We must con fess that the lit tle lass with the doll in her hand, makes a ve ry cle ver and care ful nurse. She is shew ing her new trea sure to her friend on her right with no small de gree of pride, at which we need not won der, nor at the man ner in which the oth er ap pears to ad mire it, for it is a ve ry hand some af fair. It must have cost the lit tle girl's pa pa and ma ma a great deal of mo ney, and I hope she will know how to va lue and take care of it, and not throw it a bout af ter she has had it a lit tle while, and get tir ed of it, as I have known some silly children do.

A WALK WITH MA MA.

This lit tle boy and girl, may ve ry well be in high spi rits. Their ma ma is not of ten a ble to go out with them, for the in fant takes up a great deal of her time, and she has ma ny oth er things to at tend to at home, so that the chil dren most ly walk with the ser vant. But to day, ma ma is at lei sure, and they have set out for a nice walk in the fields, ba by and all. The child ren seem rea dy to skip with de light, and e ven Tray shares in their joy. We wish the par ty much pleasure.

A RIDE WITH MA MA.

Well, this is a tru ly sty lish set out. The pair of long tailed hor ses are per fect beau ties, and the post lad has no need to use the whip to them. I do not won der that the lit tle folks enjoy their ride so much, in such a nice car riage, and through such a love ly coun try, and, above all as they are a long with their kind ma ma, who is point ing out all that she thinks like ly to a muse them...
