Tho'bordered with silver and centered with gold,
Yet few In the delay czn beauty behold. fl
Beneetb the proud foot unthinking trod,
*»» crashed in IU meekness upon the cold sward.
dh ’tis .vile—Omnipotent power
Hath shaded *nd formed this delicate flower.
then not in vein, that wisdom and skill.
Displayed in this flower hath a purpose to fill.
When the day; god takes op hi* march through the sky,
Ha tenderly kisses thethc tear from its eye;
, The unconscious beauty awakes from its dream;
And basks the (Jay long in bis bright golden beam.
Like a miniature sun, so dazzling and bright,
Befleettng the rays ofits cortowrd light.
It smSfrigly greets ns on the hill or the green, •
Thus lending enchantment where’er it is seen.
Ahf well I remember, Id the morning of youth,
The zest it gayo doty—the incentive to truth
And this plight gem, when crushed to the sward,
Throws back its brigfatblnshcs and looks up to Qod.
So mee)c and spiinUd. so patient ard true, -
Its fidelity seemed my young heart to woo,
As o’er It I bent—it seemed whispering kind.
And bade me took upward true pleasure to find.
Then say not *ds ruin, gold embossed flower,
•Ott hath it cheered in adversity’s hour!
And taught me celestial joys to admire,
And ever and Purdy to Heavcn aspire.

Ko (Right to Indorse.
1. A man has np right to indorse, when
the failure'of the first party to meet his
obligation will render the creditors of the
indorser liable to loss in consequence of
2. I?e has ho right to indorse for another
man unless he make provision for meeting
such* obligation, Independent of and after
providing for all other obligations.
8. He has no right to indorse unless he
fully intends to pay what he premises to,
promptly, in case the first party; fails to do
so. Few indorsers prepare for this.
4. His relations to his family demands
that he shall opt obligate himself to another,
simply at the:risk of defrauding or depri
ving them of frhat belongs to them.
5. Hp shopld never indorse or become
responsible far any amount without secu
rity is fhrnished by the first party. It
should be made a : business transaction
rarely a mattpr of friendship. It is equiv
alent to a loan of capital to the amount of
the obligation! and the same precaution
should be taken to secure it. .
6. A man has no more right to-expect
another to indorse his note without recom
pense, than to expect an insurance com
pany to insure his home or his life gratui
7. It is not good business policy for one
to ask another to indorse his note, promis
ing to accommodate him in the same man
ner. The exchange of signatures may
have, and usually does have, a very unequal
value. It is’ better to secure him the
amount, and a like security for the
amount of responsibility incuircd.
8. It in better to do a business that will
involve no necessity for asking or "ranting
such favors, 6r making such exchanges.—
It i&always safe and j nst to do so.— Piairie

Luckl—l; may here, as well as apy
wherc, (jsaid iHenry Ward Beecher, In a
recent lecture) impart the secret of what
is called|g6od and 'bad luck. There are men
who, suppose-Providence to have an im
placable; spite against them, bemoan in
poverty pf a old age the miafor
tunr or; their lives. Luck forever ran
againpt |hem &nd for others.
Ope, with rK good profession, lost his
Jack in the riser, where he idled his time
away in fiahiOg, when he should have been*
ip the qjEce. Another with'a good trade,
hnrnt'up his luck with his hot
temper, which provoked al. his employers
to leave him. Another, vrlth a lucrative
business, lost, his luck By aw «kir> g diji.
gence at everything but his business
Another, who steadily followed his bottle,
Another, whd was honest and constant at
his work, erred; by perpetual misjudge
ments, he locked discretion. Hundreds
lose their luck by endorsing; by sanguine
speculations; by trusting fraudulent men;
and by dishonest gains. A man never has
good luck who has a bad wife. I never
knew an early-rising, hard working pru
dent man, careful of his earnings and
strictly honest, who complained of bad
luck. A good character, goolrnabits, and
iron industry, are impregnable to the as
saults of all the ill-luck that fools ever
dreamed of. But when I sec a tatterde
malion creeping out of a groggery late in
the forenoon, with his hands stack in his
pockets,! the rim of his hat tamed up, and
the crown knocked in, I know be has had
bad luck —for the worst of all lack is to
he a sluggard, a knave, or a tippler.
A negro oocp gave a
fceiry m* opposition,
none at aU.”

The French boast that some of their
fiercest and most terrible troops were the
Tnrcos, as black as a coal, natives of North
Africa, men whose fierce passions mount
up to perfect frenzy in inoments of a
charge, and who, officeredby Frenchmen
of judgment to guide and direct their tre
mendous energies, do all that men can do
on the field of battle, and seem rather like
tigers in the impetuosity of their attacks.
The French have no doubt learned, in
deed, a. useful lesson in the art of war
from the Arab troops with which they
have been brought in contact *on the
coast of'Algires. The suddenness, swift
ness and whirlwind character of attack,
sweeping all before it, palsying all resis
tance, and trampling in the dust all op
position ; ‘this sort of attack has been
brought to a degree of perfection by the
Zouaves and the Turcos from a hard-earn
ed experience of its terribleness on the
plains of Africa. Something of this kina,
indeed, is best, and the only possible kind
of force that can operate to in
breaking a lipe of soldiers Wjell supplied
with the new guns' of long range now in
use. The rapidity with which they cover
the ground, the irregularity of their for
mation, and the wild fierceness of their at
tack, fascinating and so disarming for a
moment an enemy, renders iPodern war
fare, no less than the old modes of fighting,
a hand to hand encounter, ■ i
Ideas of Children.-— A devoted
Christian woman was instructing her lit
tle nephew in serious things, find showed
him a picture in Fox’s Book of Martyrs
where Christians were being torn in pieces
by lions in the amphitheatre. The child
looked on for some time in silence and
evident sympathy, when all of a sudden he
exclaimed : “ See that poor Utile lion, he
can’t get any ”
“ What are you doing ?” asked a mother
of her little girl. “ Playing school,” was
the reply. “ But it is Sunday to-day.”—
“ I know it;” said the child* "sal am
playing Sunday School.”
A mother was instructing her daughter
in the duty of prayer and the sore answer
given to believers ; and proceeded to re
peat the Lord’s Prayer. When she came
to the clause, “ Give us this dav,our daily
bread,” the little one broke eat with, “ Oh,
mother, say cake, say cake.” .
Lung in Bed.—fJp piece pf indolence
hurts the health more than ; the modern
custom of lying abed too long jn the morn
ing. This is the general practice in towns.
The inhabitants of cities seldom rise bo
fore eight or nine o’clock, but the morn
ing is undoubtedly the best time for exer
cise, while thp stomach is empty and the
body refreshed with sleep. Besides, the
morning air braces and strengthens the
nerves, and in some. measure answers the
purpose with a cold bath. Let any one,
who has been accustomed toiliejn bed
till eight or nine o’clock, rite by six or
seven, spend a couple of hours iu walk
ing, riding or any : other active diversion
without doors, he will find his spirits cheer
ful and serene throughout |ihe day, his
appetite keen, and his body braced and
strengthened. . ;

An Unequal Contest.— An amusing
incident occurred while Van Ambnrglft
menagerie was crossing the Appomattox,
a short distance above the Pocahontas
bndge, Btrikingly illustrative of thc fact
that the ball-dog is the most courageous
of all .animals, and will attack any crea
ture, regardless of size. As the elephant
entered the water with his usual slow and
cautious step,some individuals the crowd,
prompted by a spirit of mischief, hied on
a large bull dog to attack the huge animal.
The dog, instantly obeyed, and; plunging
into the water, seized hold of one of the
hind legs of the elephant, on which the
latter only switched him with his tail, as
he would brush off a fly, but not ridding
himself of bis assailant by such gentle
means, and feeling sharp teeth" at work
upon his leg, he suddenly threw his snout
around, and seizing the dog, held Urn un
der the water until he was nearly drowned**
then, raising him high in the air, threw
him at least a hundred feet out into the
stream.' Fully satisfied with the pniish
ment ho had received, the dog myfy his
way to shore, and beat a hasty retreat. '
