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....
