             LITTLE SCENES


             LITTLE FOLKS,


        With Coloured Engravings.







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.



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.



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.



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.



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.



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. I am sure they have been good chil-dren, or their ma-ma would
not have ta-ken them with her.



What a pret-ty, tame, gen-tle crea-ture and how fond-ly its young
mis-tress seems to ca-ress it. Yet I am al-most a-fraid that her
kind-ness is car-ried to ex-cess, and that she hugs the lamb
ra-ther too close for its com-fort. In-deed its looks near-ly
ex-press as much. Her bro-ther ap-pears ful-ly to share in her
fond-ness for the lamb. He has a bas-ket of gay flowers stand-ing
on the ground be-side him, and is making a gar-land for the neck of
the pet, which when, dress-ed out, will no doubt cut a ve-ry smart



Our young sail-or has just launch-ed his new ves-sel, and a ve-ry
neat and trim one it is. The rig-ging is in good or-der, and the
wind fills the spread-ing sails brave-ly. The grace and beau-ty of
the bark seems great-ly to de-light Charles, as well as his two
sis-ters, who have come to par-take in the plea-sure of the scene.
I do not know what car-go the ves-sel has on board, but I think
there is not much dan-ger of her be-ing wreck-ed, as she is not
like-ly to sail far out of her mas-ter's care and sight.



What a plea-sure it is to see chil-dren with good and kind hearts.
How the sweet lit-tle girl ap-pears to pi-ty the poor in-firm old
wo-man to whom she is giv-ing her pen-ny, and so does her broth-er
who has be-fore giv-en his share of re-lief. And their good ma-ma
stands look-ing on with de-light, as she may well do, at the
con-duct of her off-spring. If we did but re-flect on the com-forts
which God al-lows us to en-joy, while so ma-ny poor crea-tures are
in want and sick-ness and sor-row, we should al-ways be glad to
shew our-selves grate-ful to him by help-ing those who are in



Stand up, Pom-pey! You are on-ly half a sol-di-er yet. You have got
your gun in your hand, but we must put your hel-met on be-sides to
make you com-plete. Poor Pom-pey! he is as peace-ful and quiet as a
lamb, and willing to do a-ny thing that he can which he is told to
do. The chil-dren round him seem kind and fond of him, and I trust
they will not keep him stand-ing long, be-cause, though it may
a-muse them to see him play a trick or two, this pos-ture is not
easy to him.



This is a fa-mous dash-ing steed, and he ap-pears to have a ve-ry
smart, ac-tive young ri-der. He has a firm and grace-ful seat, and
has his reins well in hand. He rides too with a great deal of
cou-rage, al-though we must ad-mit that his charg-er is not like-ly
to swerve from the course which he wish-es him to keep, nor, though
go-ing at full gal-lop, is there any dan-ger of his be-ing thrown
or run a-way with by the do-cile crea-ture on which he is



In some parts of the world, where the sun is ve-ry hot, the skins
of the peo-ple, in-stead of be-ing white, like ours, are quite
black; these folks are call-ed ne-groes. Some wick-ed men take them
from their homes, and make them slaves and ill-treat them; and
ma-ny sil-ly chil-dren are a-fraid of them, be-cause they seem
ugly. I am glad to see that our young friends have been taught
bet-ter. They are look-ing with pi-ty at the poor black man, and
the lit-tle one is giv-ing him some re-lief. They know that God
made all men of all col-ours, and that we are all e-qual be-fore



Yes, baby is smart in-deed now. How proud she is of her new shoes,
and how ea-ger she is to put out her lit-tle feet to shew them to
her bro-ther and sis-ter, who seem scarce-ly less pleas-ed than
her-self. Her ma-ma too looks with de-light up-on the plea-sure her
ba-by feels, and for-gets all the trou-ble she her-self has had. I
do not know how chil-dren can be grate-ful e-nough to their kind
parents who thus pro-vide for all their wants and plea-sures in
their help-less age.



Here is a sad piece of mis-chief, and, if I am right in my guess,
Mad-am Puss, by the man-ner in which she is scud-ding out of the
room is the au-thor of it. I sus-pect that, while the doll was
ly-ing upon the stool, the cat be-gan to play with its long
clothes, till she pull-ed it down on the floor, where it got broken
as we see. Care might have spar-ed this loss. If the lit-tle girl,
be-fore go-ing to her mu-sic, had put the doll in a high place out
of puss's reach, all would have been safe.



This is a sight worth look-ing at. No one i-dle but all mak-ing
some good use of their time. Ma-ma is sett-ing a good pat-tern. She
is bu-sy in read-ing while lit-tle Jane is work-ing close-ly at her
needle, and her el-der bro-ther Charles is tak-ing on the Globe the
mea-sure of the dis-tance be-tween two pla-ces. Their ma-ma must
feel much plea-sure in see-ing her chil-dren em-ploy them-selves so
well, and af-ter their work is o-ver, they will en-joy their play,
when they go to it, more than la-zy folks can ever do.



We need not ask wheth-er these two chil-dren have learn-ed their
morn-ing les-son as they ought. Their own smil-ing fa-ces, and the
pleas-ed looks of their pa-pa are quite e-nough to tell us that
they are go-ing through their la-bours in a pro-per man-ner, and
not like some lit-tle folks that stop, and blun-der, and stam-mer,
and are al-ways want-ing to be told. Their pa-pa will I dare say
re-ward them with his praise, and, ve-ry like-ly, by tak-ing them
out with him.
