THE OLD BURYING GROUND
Our vales are sweet with fern and rose,
Our hills are maple-crowned,
But not for them our fathers chose
The village burying ground.
.The dreariest snot in all the land
To death they set apart;
With scanty grace from Natures hand,
And none from that of Art.
A winding wall of mossy stone,
Frost-flung and broken lines,
A lonesome acre thinly grown
With grass and wandering vines
Without the walls the birch trco shows
Its drooped and tasseled bead;
Within the staghorn sumach grows
Fern-leafed; with spikes of red.
There, sheep that grazo the neighboring
Like white ghosts come and go;
The farm-horse drags his fetlock chain,
The cow-bell tingles slow.•
Low moans the river from its bed,
The distant pines reply;
Like mourners shrinking from the dead,
They stand apart and sigh.
Unshaded smites the sumnimer sun,
Unchecked the winter blast;
The school-girl learns the place to shun,
With glances backward cast.
For thus our fathers testified—
That he might read who ran—
The emptiness of human pride,
The nothingness of man.
They dared not plant the graves with
Nor dress the funeral sod,
Where, with a love as deep as ours,
They left their dead with God.
The hard and thorny path they kept;
From beauty turned aside,
Nor missed they ever those who slept
The grace to life denied.
Yet still the wilding flowers would blow
The golden leaves would fall,
The seasons come, the seasons go,
And God be good to all.
Above the graves the blackberry hcng
In bloom and green its leaf,
Tho harebells swung as if they rung
The chimes of peaco beneath.
The beauty nature loves to share,
The gifts she has for all,
The common light, the common air,
O'ercrept the graveyard's wall.
I knew,thii glow of oventide,
Tho sunrise and the noon,
And glorified, and sanctified,
It slept beneath the moon,
To the lackidasical youth, with an in
ner 'consciousness of a fitness for a"great
life mission," we commend the following
"It is easier to be a good business
man than a poor one. Half the energy
displayed in keeping ahead, that is re
quired to catch. up when behind, will
Bare credit, give more time to buSiness,
and add to the profits and reputation of
your word. Honor your engagements.
If you promise to meet a man, or do a
certain thing at a certain moment, be
ready at the appointed time. If you have
work to do, do it at once, chcerfully,and
therefore, more speedily and correctly.
If you go on business, attend to the mat
ter iromptly, and then, as promptly, go
about your own business. Do not stop
to tell stories in business hours.
If you have a place of business, be
found there when wanted. No man can
get rich by sitting around stores and sa
loons. Never 'fool' on business matters.
If you have to labor for a living, remem
ber that one hour in the morning, is bet
ter than two at night. If you employ
others, be on hand to see that they at
tend to their duties, and direct with reg
ularity, promptness and liberality. Do
not meddle with any business you know
nothing of. Never buy any article, sim
ply because the man who sells it will
take it out in trade. Trade is money.—
Time is money. A good business habit
and reputation is always money. Make
your place of business pleasant and at
tractive; then stop there to wait on cus-
Never use quick words, or allow your
self to make ungentlemanly remarks to
those in your employ; for to do so lessens
their respect for you and your influence
over them. Help yourself, and others
will help you. Le faithful over the in
terests confided to your keeping, and in
all good time your responsibilities will
increase. Do not be in groat haste to get
rich. Do not build until you have ar
ranged and laid a foundation. Do not
—as you hope or work for success—spend
time in idleness. If your time is your
own, business will suffer if you do. If
it is given to another for pay, it belongs
to him, you have no more right to steal
that, than money. De obliging. Strive
to avoid harsh words and personalities.
Do not kick every stone in the patch;
more miles can be made in a day by go
ing steadily on, than by stopping to kick.
Pay as you go. A man of honor respects
his word as he does his bond. Ask, but
never beg. Help others when you can,
but never give when you cannot afford to,
simply because it is fashionable. Learn
to say no. No necessity of snapping it
out dog fashion, but say it firmly and re

Thrilling Love Story
"Jim," said a young sailor to his
cousin, who lived a long way inland,and
Lad never seen the "bigwater," " Jim,
lid you ever think of goin to sea ?"
•' You mean going to see the gals, I
suppose; I've been to see the gals lots of
" That ain't what I mean," said the
"But what about going to see the
girls? Can you give me an account of
any of-your adventures?"
" Well," replied Jim, "I never make
a practice of telling such things. 'Taint
a good plan; but I had a little larkin'
scrape last spring, and as you live away
off to Boston, and don't get such chan
ces, if you'll agree to keep mum, I'll tell
you all about it."
"I will keep perfectly dark," said the
tar Who was beginning to feel interested,
"go on with iour story."
"It does make me feel kinder ugly
when I think on't, I'll be hanged if it
don't, but it's all over now. You see,
Suko Baker and I used to take great
shine to one another. Suke was one of
your right•down smart, well-looking and
good-behaving gals. She appreciated
me; and I appreciated her, and we never
should had no trouble if it hadn't been
for the old man. lie was a darned old
snake-in-the grass, and made us more
trouble than all the rest of the family.
Suke and I never 'joyed ourselves, for
he was always sneakin'round and thro'n'
out hints, and makin' himself as hateful
as he was homely. I got sick on't, and
SO did Sake. I suppose the old scamp
didn't like me, and didn't want me there.
I don't know what else to make of it, for
he told me, more than twenty times, to
leave, and not come again.
" Suke's room was in the end of the
chamber, and I told her ono time to
leave her window up, and I'd come in,
and we'd have a bit of a visit. I know'd
she wouldn't hesitate to do it, for I'm
honest, and very 'speetful in my behav
ure. Well, after the folks were all in
bed, and the house was still, I goes and
gets •a ladder, and puts it up to the win
dow. I then pulled off my boots and
crawled up. Suke met me at the window
sill, and a tickelder couple you never
• see than we was; but just as I was. try
ing to clamber in, the confounded ladder
slid, and down it:went, thunder to lick,
making noise enough to wake up the
whole town. It bit. one of the lower win
ders, and knocked it all to smash. I just
caught by the tip ends of my fingers on
the Winder sill. Suke, seeing M a falling,
made a grab for me, and got me by the
hair of the head; and 'tween us both, I
just made out to stay, but I thought
'twould been as well if I hadn't been
there, for I. could neither get in nor get
Old Baker heard the racket, and out
he came, in his shirt, to see what was to
pay. He sees me hangin' there, and I
suppose the old whelp mistrusted some
thing, for be went and got a fish pole,
and begun to welt at my limbs, really in
earnest. I tell you, Bill, I was in a very
harrisin situation. There I was, 'spen
ded by the hair—for Suke did the most
of the hanging on—and old Baker, as
mad as a hoe, jist wallopin' me down
with a hickory fish-pole. What was to
be did. If Suke and I should let go, I
should fall, perhaps, and break my neck.
If Silk° and I hung on, old Baker would
lick me to giglets with his infernal fish
pole. I was never so unpleasantly situ
ated in all my life. I would gin two shil
lings for lightning enough to strike the
old whelp dead; but all the lightning I
see was in my eye. I tell ye, Bill, there
was some there, or something else; for I
could see stars of all kinds and colors,
just as thick as splatters. But, thinks I,
I can't stand this,by a, jug full, so I took
and let go. Suke hung on like a beaver,
and saved most half my hair, but down
I went. Old Baker want 'specting me
quite so soon, and I hit him on the head,
and knocked him stiffer than a louse.—
I got up and went home, but I felt pooty
grouty, I tell you."

For the licpublicad
Distinction Without Difference.
How strange, and yet how true it is
that the human race, though created and
preserved by the same unseen power,
nourished and sustained by the same
all-wise Providence, children of a com
mon parent, and inhabiting the same
earth, should be at once visited by such
marked distinctions. Men of all kind
reds, and nations, and tongues; men
born in the snow-clad regions of the
poles, and men reared and matured be
neath the scorching blasts of the. inter
tropical regions of the equator; men of
literature and art, and men of ignorance
and want, all considered personally and
collectively, present, to every curious
observer, a,,striking instance of the fact,
that man, though considered with refer
ence to oolor, and location, may present
aspects qutte dissimilar, yet, in regard
to matters affecting men individually,
there always was, and, I presume - , ever
will be a disposition of humanity to make
distinction without difference. Look at
different parts of the globe, and what do
you behold ? In sections you see man
Ming upon his great throne of unlimit
ed power, wearing upon his head the
royal diadem, and upon his shoulders
robes of superiority, and upon his feet
the sandals of honor. From his mouth
issues forth imperative commands and
withering imprecations, and in his hand
is found the glittering sword of execu
tion. While, on the contrary, his sub
jects are compelled to perform the most .
menial offices, and tho most servile tasks;
yet, in regard to disposition, talents and
virtue, and, perhaps, in every other' re
spect, as to qualification, frequently the
servant might take the 'place of the mas
ter. Was man made to rule his fellow
man? • Was man placed Upon this Earth
to bow the mind of his neighbor, though
equal in natural endowment, to shape his
actions, to check his passions, and to
keep mind, body and soul in complete
subjection? Monstrous inconsistency
Shocking distinction How is it in our
country? With a few modifications and
anomilies, America might bear compari
son. how often does wealth take the
place of character, and lineage usurps
the place of honor? low often is the
humble man neglected and despised,
wi file his rich neighbor is eXalted and
honored? How often is wisdom discour
aged, and foolishness promoted? It is
dangerous to our institutions. Ills per
ilous to freedom, while it is the keystone
to despotism. We, as American citizens,
should, therefore, be • careful to avoid,
studiously, everything, social or politi
cal, which has a tendency to mark dis
tinction without difference. 11. 11.
WO3IEN ASSUMING THEIR PROPER rLi
cts.—Women have been making public
opinion, while men thought they were
only writing love stories. Through even
the poorest and most shallow of these,
might be traced a womanly protest
against thi standard opinion of men, in
regard to themselves, and a mental and
moral assertion of the individual rights
of the sex. They have been deepening
in thought, and emancipating themselves
from dogmas, and clearly defining their
position, while they seemed only tecom
plain and lament over undefined injuries,
and the sense of something wrong, that
was supposed to be native to the sex,and
a part of their mental constitution, till
men got to saying, "nothing will ever
satisfy a woman."
This discontent was the most hopeful
thing about a woman, and argued a pro
test when her discontent should have
reached to the dignity of exasperation.
It had marred the harmony of her life;
it had imparted an indescribable sadness
to her pen, and now she has given the
world the declaration of her rights. She
speaks now, and the world must, and
It eeems to me that arc very blind
who refuse to look this matter in the
face; and women are more to blame,who
have not trained their sons to nobler
views, and a better appreciation of what
is due to their mothers and sisters.
Men complain of our imbecilities, and
justly so; but the only remedy is in the
success of the very opinions which they
treat with contempt. The only antidote
to the corruptions and abuses of the
world is, in the acknowledgment of the
equality of woman, and the conviction,
on her part, that ohe ought to earn her
own bread honestly, as men must earn
theirs,—Elizabeth Oakes Smith, in Pack
ard's ,Monthly, fo7 Tune.
VENTILATE YOUR CELLAES.—Many a
dargerous fever has been caused by the
fell air from dark, damp and unventila
ted cellars. Confined air, without the
purifying influence of sunlight, soon be
comes impure and unwholesome. Most
cellars serve as a reservoir for this im
pure air, which, in addition, is loaded
with decomposing organic matters, and
foul gases, given off from the masses of
decaying vegetables with which they arc
stored. The foul air finds its way slow
ly and constantly into the upper rooms
of the house, there to poison the systems
of its occupants. Cellars should be kept
as clean and pure as any portion of the
house. They also should be well venti
lated, which can easily be done by hav
ing a flue opening from the cellar into
the chimney, and by having one or more
openings from the outside to admit the
fresh air. Cellars should also be kept
dry, as well as clean and well veutila

NINE RIiASONS WoM.uc UITRAG.E.-
Miss Francis PoWer.Cobbe, an English
writer, gives the following reasons for
enfranchising her sex, in a' pamphlet
largely circulated in England :
1. Because women fulfill the property
qualification on which political rights
are based in England:
2. Because the e±clusion of women'
entail a moral and intellectual losS to
the community at large.
3. Becauie the interests of a non-rep-'
resented class are liable to suffer.
4. Because the legislature of Englan'd
neglects women and favors men.
5. Because women are taxed and do
not share the privileges attached' to that'
O. Because their legal . disabilities
•p]ace women at a serious disadvantage
in competing with men in numerous
business offices and employments.
7. Because, in consequence of the de.:
nial of the suffrage to women, men are
led to despise and oppress them and•treat
offences against them with levity.
8. Because the denial of the right to'
the direct exercise of their judgement
has weakening and degrading effect on
the minds of women,
D. Finally, we desire the franchise for
women, because, while believing that
men and women have different work to
do in life, hold that, in the choice of
political representatives, they have the
same task to accomplish, namely: The
joint selection of a Senate;•which will
guard with equal care the rights of both
sexes, and which shall embody in its
laws that true justice which shall apt
prove itself not only to the strong, bu
also to the weak:
