" WHERE IS YOUR HOME ?"
Tell me ye dew-drops that sparkle in
the early morning and make the little
blades of grass look as though they were
cased in glass—" Where is your home I"
for as soon as the eastern sky is illumina
ted with that bright orb of day, you spar
kle for a little, and then disappear. But,
"where is your home ?" Is it in those
bright stars that sparkle in the clear blue
vault of Heaven ? Yes, Lthink it must
be there, for when they are hid from view
by clouds, you come not, and I think
that milst be your home, and you come
to visits in the early morning to make
our earfeappear more beautiful.
Tell us, liZtle child, with your golden
ringlets and sunny smile, as you trip along
so light and gay with your basket of bright
spring flowers, "where is your home ?"
I wonder if it will not answer, that it is in
that pretty cottage by the side of the
brook,whose waters are so bright and spark
ling that they seem like drops of chrystal.
Yes, that is a lovely home, for the flow
ers seem as if they grow more luxuriant
there than they do elsewhere; for there it
was that it had filled its basket with those
beautiful gifts of Heaven, flowers. Well
may you trip lightly with your flowers, lit
tle one, for the dark shades of sorrow
have not yet crossed your pathway, and
may those bright gifts be a shield to pro
tect you there.
Ask that frail, weak form, that we see
resting upon a bench beneath the droop

SWEETER FAR IN HEAVEN.
It was evening. We were seated alone
at the piano, breathing a song of beauty
and joy : and as our fingers glided gently
up the silver-keyed octaves, and the music
"sonl.,of beauty," gushed forth responsive
to our touch, it seemed that nowhere in
this glad earth could there be hearts beat
ing 'heavily—so light and joyous was our
own. The last echo had died away in the
distance, and turning from the instrument,
Our eye rested upon the silvered locks and
bending form of one whose countenance
bespoke a pure and noble heart. We had
never met before, bUt he whispered softly,
while a smile of beauty wreathed his col
orless lips, "Young maiden, 'twill be
sweeter far in heaven I" Oh, how those
few simple words changed the current of
our thoughts : and when, in words of win
ning eloquence, he spoke of the comforts
of our holy religion and urged us to con
secrate our life, our talents, our all, to the
service of our - Maker, we thought no sac
rifice too great, if, like him, we too might
see unfolding before our spirit's vision the
glories of the Celestial City.
Weeks fled, and that old man, wearied
of earth, folded his thin arms and went to
sleep. They laid Mm to rest, away in the
church-yard; but we know that there was
but the casket—that the spirit, no longer
fettered, was basking in the sunlight of
the Savior's smile: and that his voice, no
longer tremulous, mingled in the anthems
of the "just made perfect." And when
at twilight hour we breathe a song of
"olden time," beautiful, indeed, through
the vista of the past, comes the remem
brance of those joy-inspiring words,—
"'Twill be sweeter far in heaven !"

aware of the loss until a little darkey, just

OBEY GOD RATHER THAN DIAN.
A poor boy, in a foreign country, about
twelve or thirteen years old, became im
pressed with religion by reading God's
word. He was apprenticed to an ungodly
master, a tailor, who made him work on
Sundays as on other days. Before long,'
the boy, fearing lest he should be doing
wrong, came and asked advice of a pious
friend as to what he ought to do—wheth
er he should obey his master, when he
forbade him to attend the worship of God,
and forced him to work instead.
The answer, of course, could be but one
—that both he and his master ought to
keep the day of the Lord; and that if his
master would not obey God's command
he, for his part, should follow his con
science, and say to his master, "We must
obey God ratter than man."
After a time, the boy returned to his
friend, and with tears in his eyes told him
his master had whipped him because he
refused to work on Sundays. His friend
endeavored to strengthen him, telling him
it was better to suffer on his back than in
his conscience, and encouraged him to
work on for that God would not allow him
to suffer more than he could bear.
The next Sunday, the master, with the
whip in his hand, came to the boy, who
sat reading, and said to him, "Choose,
now, which you will; either to work or to
taste this whip."
It was a trying moment for the brave
little fellow ; but after a very short pause,
he plucked up courage and answered,—
"You may whip me if you choose, but my
conscience commands me, and I will not
This answer, one might have thought,
was enough to soften the heart of the un
godly master; and it had such influence
with him that he did not punish the boy
at that time.
This was a truly brave boy What boy
who reads this will be as brave the next
time he is called upon to obey God rather
than man ? This is the sort of courage
boys want—courage for God—not to fear
anything so long as we are pleasing and.

The young man declared that he was
twenty-one years old, and that he new it,
and that he insisted upon his right.
The father, becoming indignant, and

"Now, Bob, will you stand up there and
contradict me ? Don't I know how old

INSECT IN THE Lusos.—The Evansville
(Ga.) Journal relates that a young man of
that city had been for some months afflicted
with a serious cough and hemorrhage from
the lungs, so that it was feared. he was enter
ing into a fatal consumption. But he was
relieved in a singular manner. One night
he was attacked, while in bed, with a. violent
fit of coughing, which was followed. with a
copious hemorrhage, and as the blood flowed
from his lips he felt a solid substance of same
size pass them. On examining the blood
thrown up, a bug with six horny legs and in
cipient delicate wings, was found in it. The
head of the insect was out of proportion to
its body. The former was of the size of a
small pea, with eyes distinctly perceptible,
while its body was only the size of a large
grain of barley. The thing was alive and
active. Since this occurrence, the unpleas
ant sensations have passed off, and the cough
has ceased, and the only trouble has been
one slight hemorrhage a day or two after ex
pectorating the bug. The sufferer is of the
opinion that lie inhaled larva, or egg of the
insect, and that it entered the substance of
his lungs, and then hatched, as the sensation
of expelling the creature was like tearing
' away a portion of the organ.
NUMBER OF-NEWSPAPERS IN THE WORLD.-
The following is supposed to be the number
of Newspapers in the world: 10 in Austria,
14 in Africa, 24 in Spain, 26 in Portugal, 30
in Asia, 65 in Belgium, 85 in Denmark, 50
in Russia and Poland,-350 in the Germanic
States, 500 in Great Britain and Ireland,
and 2,000 in the United States. Tutal, 3,154.
From the foregoing it will be seen that in the
United States arc issued nearly twice as many

HE NEW YORK STEAM SAW
MILL AND MACHINE COMPANY,
CA 'ITAL. TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND
This company lia,s been organized with the above capital
for the purpose of supplying the demand for the
COMBINATION PORTABLE STEAM SAW-MILL,
and oilier improved machinery.
They have purchased the entire machinery business here
totbre carried on by J. 31. Emerson & Co., also the Mont
gomery Works at Yonkers, on the Iludson, near this city,
and w ith the experience and facilities combined in its or

at more liberal rates, than has ever been offered at any
The Combination Saw-Mill was patented October, 1550,
and is now generally acknowledged to be the cheapest, and
must practical, and efficient lumber manufacturing ma

rers in preference to all other mills.
The following letter expresses the general opinion of
those who are using the Combination Mill :
Mcssr.s. EMERSON S: Co.—Gentlemen: I have tried the
purchased of you, and will say that it performs
well, and more thanstneets my expectations. I ant well
pleased with its performance. I set it up on a small stream
that afffirdvd constant water about as thick as my little
finger. which was much more than sufficient to supply the
boiler. We are able to cut 5.000 feet of beautiful lumber
in 12 hours, with something less than one cord of wood.—
It is the very thing we have so much needed in our county
for a lung thee. With a little trouble and e.lpense, we are
able to move it front five to ten miles per day, and set it up
in the heart of the timber, which saves the great burden
of hauling the logs a long distance to the mill.
Yours respectfully, JESSE KErtn. Jr.,

1 REATEST DISCOVERY OF
, or ACE.
IMPORTANT TO TOBACCO CTIEWERS!!
Tast e Restorati ve Troches, the Great Substitute
It is a well known and incontrovertible fact that the use
of Tobacco is the promoting cause of many of the most se
vere MENTAL AND PHYSICAL DISORDERS to which tho
race of man is subject, as careful analysis and long and
painful experience have clearly proven that it contains
certain narcotic and poisonous properties most dangerous•
in their effects., which by entering into the blood derange
the functions anif operations of the Heart, causing many
to suppose that organ to be seriously deceased.
TOBACCO affects also the entire nervous system, mani
festing itself—as all who have used the noxious weed will
bear testimony—in Lassitude, Nervous Irritability. Water
Erash, Dyspepsia, and many other disorders of a similar
TILE TASTE RESTORATIVE TROCHES arc designed to
counteract these baneful influences, and have proved com
pletely successful in a multitude of cases, and wherever
used. Being harmless in themselves they exert a benefi
cial effect upon the entire system, restoring the taste which
has become vitiated or destroyed by great indulgence, com
pletely removing the irritation and accompanying tickling
sensation of the Throat—which are always consequent
upon abstaining from the use of Tobacco, and by giving a
healthy tone to the Stomach, invigorate the whole system.
Persons who are irretrievably undermining their con
stitutions and shortening their lives, should use these
Troches immediately and throw off the injurious and un
pleasant habit of Tobacco Chewing.
These Troches or Lozenges are put up in a convenient
and portable form at the low price of 50 Cents per Box.:—
A liberal discount to the Trade.
Prepared solely by the undersigmed to whom all orders
should be addres,,ed.
