As die the embers ou the hearth,
And o'er the floor the shadows fitll,
And creeps the chirping cricket forth,
And ticks the death watch on the wall—
I see a form on yonder chair,
That grows beneath the waning light—
There are the wan sad features—there
The palid brow, and locks of whiter
My father! when they laid thee down,
And heaped the clay upon thy breast,
And left thee sleeping all alone,
Upon thy narrow couch of rest,
I know not why I could not weep—
The soothing drops refused to roll;
And oh! that grief is wild and deep
Which settles tearless on the soul !
But when I saw thy vacant chair—
Thine idle hat upon the wall—
Thy hook—penciled passage, where
Thine eyes had rested last of all;
The trees beneath whose friendly shade
Thy trembling feet had wandered forth—
The very prints those feet lied made,
When last they feebly trod the earth—
And thought while countless ages fled,
Thy vacant seat would vacant stand,
Unworn thy hat, thy book unread,
Effaced thy footsteps from the sand,
And widowed in this cheerless world,
The heart that gave its love to thee—
Torn, like a vine whose tendrills curled
More closely round the falling tree!
Oh! father, then for her and thee,
Gushed madly forth the scorching tears,
And oft. and long, and bitterly,
Those tears have gushed in later years,
For, as the world grows cold around,
And things take on their real hue.
'Tis sad to learn that love is found
Alone :thrive the stars with yon.
A SCHOOLMASTER'S STORY
A LESSON for TEACHERS and PUPILS.
"'When I taught a district school," said he,
"I adopted as a principle, to give as few
rules to my scholars as possible. I had,
however, one standing rule, which was,
"Strive under all circumstances to do right,"
and the text of right, under all circum
stances, was the golden rule, "All things
whatsoever ye would that men should do
unto you, do ye even so unto them."
If an offence was committed, it was my in
variable practice to ask, "Vas it right?"—
"Was it as you would be done by'''
All my experience and observation have
convinced me that no act of a pupil ought to
be regarded as an offence, unless it be when
measured by the standard of the golden rule.
During the last year of my teaching, the
only tests I ever applied to an act of which
it was necessary to judge, were those of the
above questions. By this course, I gained
many important advantages.
Iu the first place, the plea, "You have not
made any rule against it," which for a long
time was a terrible burden to me, lost all its
In the second place, by keeping constantly
before the scholar, as a standard of action,
the single text of right and wrong, as one
which they were to apply for themselves, I
was enabled to cultivate in them a deep feel
ing of personal responsibility.
In the third place, I got a stronger hold
on their feelings, and acquired a new power
of cultivating and directing them.
In the fourth place, 1 had the satisfaction
of seeing them become more truthful, honest.
trust-worthy and manly in their intercourse
with me, with their friends, and with each
Once, however, I was sadly puzzled by an
application of the principle, by one of my
scholars, George Jones, a large boy, who,
partly through a false feeling of honor, and
partly through a feeling of stubbornness, re
fused to give me some information. The cir
cumstances were these :
A scholar had played some trick which in
terupted the exercises. As was my custom,
I called on the one who had done the mis
chief to-come forward. As no one started,
repeated - the request, but with no success.—
Finding. that;the culprit would not confess
his guilt, I asked George if he knew who had
committed the offence.
"I did not dolt," was the reply."
"But do you know who did ?"
"'Who was it?"
"I do not wish to tell."
"But you must tell. It is my duty to ask,
and yours to answer me."
"I cannot do it," said George, firmly.
"Then you must stop , with me after
He stopped as requested, but nothing
which I could urge, would induce him to re
veal anything. At last, out of patience with
what I believed to be the obstinacy of the
boy, I said :
"Well, George, I have borne with you as
long as I can, and you must either tell me or
With a triumphant look, as though con
scious that be bad cornered me by an appli
cation of my favorite rule, be replied, "I
can't tell you r because it would not be right.
The boy would not like to have me tell of
him, and I'll do as I'd be done by."
A few years earlier I should have deemed
a reply thus given, an insult, and should
have resented it accordingly; but experience
and reflection had taught me the folly of
this, and that one of the most important ap
plications of my oft-quoted rule, was—to
Judge of the nature of others as I would
have them judge of mine. Yet, for the mo
ment, I was staggered. His plea was plausi
ble; be might be honest in making it. I did
not see in what respect it was fallacious. I
feltYthat it would not do to retreat from my
position, and suffer the offender to escape ;
and yet, that I should do a great injustice by
compelling a boy to do a thing, if he really
believed it to be wrong.
After a little pause, I said, "Well, George,
I do not wish you to do anything which is
wrong, or which conflicts with your golden
rule. We will leave this for to-night, and
perhaps you will alter your mind before to
I saw him privately before school, and
found him more firm in his refusal than
ever. After the devotional exercises of the
morning, I began to question the scholars—
as was my wont—on various points of
duty, and gradually led the conversation to
the golden rule.
"Who," I asked, "are the persons to
whonl, as the members of this school, you
ought to do as you would be done by ?
Your parents, who support and send you
here ? your• school-mates, who are engaged
in the same work with yourselves ? the citi
zens of the town, who, by taxing themselves,
raise money to pay the expenses of this
school ? the school committee, who take so
great an interest in your welfare ? your
teacher ? or the scholar who carelessly com
mits some offence against good order ?"
A hearty "yes" was responded to every
question.except the last, at which they were
Then, addressing George, I said : "Yes
terday, I asked you who had committed a
certain offence. You refused to tell me, be
cause you thought it would not be doing as
you would be done by. I now wish you to
re-consider the subject. On one side are
your parents, your school -mates, the citizens
of this town, the school committee and your
teacher, all deeply interested in everything
affecting the prosperity of this school. On
the other side is the boy, who, by this act,
has shown himself ready to injure all these.
Tu which party will you do as you would be
done by ?"
After a moment's pause, he said: "To the
first ; it was William Brown who did it ?"
My triumph, or rather, the triumph of
principle, was complete ; and the lesson was
as deeply felt by the other members of the
school as by him for whom it was especially
designed.—Professor Robert Allyn.
The celebrated Earl of Chatham perform
ed an amount of business, every minute,
which filled common improvers of time with
utter astonishment. He knew not merely
the great outlines of public business, the
policy and intrigues of foreign courts, but
his eye was on every part of the British do
minions ; and scarcely a man could move
without his knowledge of the man and his
object. A friend, one day, called on him,
when Premier of England, and found him
down on his hands and knees, playing mar
bles with his little boy, and complaining bit
terly that the rogue would not play fair ;
gayly adding, "that he must have been cor
rupted by the example of the French l"
The friend IN ished to mention a suspicious
looking stranger, who for some time had
taken up lodgings in London. Was he a
spy, or merely a private gentleman? Pitt
went to his drawer, and took out some scores
of small portraits, and, holding up the one
which he had selected, asked : "Is that the
man ?" "Yes, the very person." "Oh, I
have had my eyes upon him from the Lime
he stepped on shore !" All this was accom
plished by a rigid observance of time; never
suffering a moment to pass without pressing
into service. No one will try to improve his
time unless he be first impressed with the
necessity. Remember, that at the very best
calculation, we can have but a short time in
which to learn all and do all that we accom
plish in life.—Todd's Shulent's Manual.
It does no Some sins have seeming
compensation or apology-,
a present gratifica
tion of some sort : but anger has none. A
man feels no better for it: It is really a tor
rent; and Ivhen the storm of passion passes
away, it leaves one to see that he has been a
fool; and he has made himself a fool in the
eyes of others, too. Who thinks well of an
ill-natured man who has to be approached in
the most guarded and cautious way? Who
wishes him for a neighbor, or a partner in
business? lle keeps all about him in the
same state of mind as if they were living
next to a hornet's nest, or a rabid animal.—
And as to prosperity in business, one gets
along no better for being angry. What if
business is laborious and perplexing, and
every body goes by contraries—will a fit of
passion make the winds more propitious, the
grounds more productive, the markets more
favorable? Will a bad temper draw custo
mers, pay notes, and make creditors better
natured? An angry man adds nothing to
the welfare of society. Since, then, anger is
useless, needless, disgraceful, without the
least apology, and found only in the bosom of
fools, why should it be indulged in at all?
UNHEALTIrr POSITIONS OF TUE Bony.—Those
persons engaged in occupations requiring the
hands alone to move, while the lower limbs
remain motionless, should bear in mind that
without constantly raising the frame to an
erect position, and giving a slight exercise to
all parts of the body, such a practice will
tend to destroy their health. They should,
moreover, sit in as erect a position as possible.
With seamstresses there is always more or
less stooping of the head and shoulders, tend
ing to retard circulation, respiration, and di
gestion, and produce curvature of the spine.
The head should be thrown back to give the
lungs full play. The frequent long-drawn
breath of the seamstress evinces the cramp
ing and confinement of the lungs. Health
cannot be expected without free respiration.
The life-giving element is in the atmosphere,
and without it in proportionate abundance
must disease intervene. Strength and robust
ness must come from exercise. Confined at
titudes are in violation of correct theories of
healthy physical development and the in
stincts of nature. Those accustomed to sit
writing for hours, day after day, can form
some idea of the exhausting nature of the
toilsome and ill-paid labor of the poor seam

Pure Air and Impure Air.
Pure air is essential to the full enjoyment
of health, and the natural and beautiful de
velopment of the body and mind. And now
the question, what is pure air? It is that
thin transparent and highly elastic fluid which
surrounds the earth on every side—lighter
than either land or water, rising far above
them, but kept by the force of gravity close
to the surface of the earth. Here its use is
indispensable to all living creatures.
Pure air, as the reader knows already, is
composed of two different elements—oxygen
and nitrogen gas; the common proportion
being 21 parts of oxygen to 79 of nitrogen,
and together with them a small proportion of
carbonic acid, carburetted hydrogen, ammo
nia, the aroma of flowers, and certain inipu
rities or miasmata.. There are many con
siderations to be regarded, as to the amount
of poison the atmosphere contains in different
localities; it has been observed that the air
in places that are surrounded by hills, forests,
Scc., generally abounds in poisonous effluvia, -
also along the banks of streams and around
the margin of swamps, while the contrary is
generally true of places that are elevated,
and those situated at a distance from streams,
swamps, &c., unless affected through the
agency of the wind by miasmata arising else
where. Winds appear to be capable of carry
ing miasmata, either enveloped in clouds and
fogs or otherwise, a very considerable dis
tance; according to some accounts, even so
far as five or six miles. A thick wood will
occasionally divert the course of a miasmatic
wind, and also.hills and mountains, and thus
afford protecti.on to a dwelling or even a whole
We often notice that some portions of a
town or district are more healthy than other
portions, the inhabitants of which are prone
to violent or fatal attacks of fever, apparently
in consequence of being in the course of a
miasmatic current. Therefore in choosing a
place of residence, one should be guided by
the same law which guides us in choosing the
food we cat and the liquids we drink; reason
and experience have taught us what food is
best adapted to nourish our systems. Why
not then let reason and experience teach us
in the selection of a place to live, in the puri
fication and ventilation of our homes, and in
the removal of all noxious agencies surround
ing or near them.
The question may be asked, in what man
ner does impure air injuriously effect the
system? In three ways: First. if sufficient
ly concentrated, it may destroy life by exclud
ing pure air from the lungs, and thus produ
cing asphyxia. Secondly, it may be simply
irritant, and cause inflammation of the air
passages. Thirdly, they may be absorbed
both through the lungs and through other
avenues, as the skin and of the mucous mem
brane of the stomach, which they may reach
along with the saliva, and thus entering into
the circulation may exercise a poisonous in
fluence upon the whole or any part of the
The blood in man as well as in all other
warm blooded- animals, requires to be con
tinually exposed to fresh currents of pure air,
and this is accomplished by respiration—one
of the most important functions of the body,
for any hindrance to its perfect performance
interferes seriously with all the other vital
processes, and its arrest, even for a very brief
space of time, is destructive of life itself.
The intimate relation existing between it
and the circulation of the blood, is such as
to constitute them contingent processes of one
function. Without the change wrought in
the blood by the act of breathing air, that
fluid would be utterly useless for its purposes
of nourishing the body and stimulating; its
several organs to healthy action. For afore
the nutritious juices of all living bodies can
be rendered fit for maintaining the waste of
use, or for promoting the increase of the tis
sues or structure through which they move,
it is indispensable that they be brought in
contact with the atmospheric air, and that
during this contact certain changes, which
we call chemical, should take place; that is
to say, that these juices—represented in the
human body by the blood—should derive
from the air a particular clement, (oxygen)
essential to its perfect condition, and at the
same time give forth another substance, (car
bonic acid) which is not only useless, but the
continuance of which in it for a longer time,
or its accumulation in large quantity, would
prove most detrimental to health, and finally
become the cause of death. In all the varie
ties of animal and vegetable life which we
see around us then, this function of respira
tion is being constantly performed, and in
each species there exists an appropriate ap
paratus or set of organs for its performance.
When respiration is performed in a calm and
natural manner there are sixteen respirations
every minute, in each of which about twenty
cubic inches of air are received into and dis- '
charged from the lungs, and the number of
cubic inches of air which pass through the
lungs of a middle-sized man in twenty-four
hours will =bunt to 460,800, and all the
blood in the system performs a complete cir
cuit, and is thus exposed to the purifying in
fluence of the air, once in every two minutes
If Nature has designed that our blood
should be purified by the use of pure air,
why not then use all means within our power
to keep it free from contamination? The re
moval of everything offensive from our houses
and yards, and from their proximity, is de
manded by every consideration of health,
comfort, delicacy and true economy.
The effluvia which result from the exhala
tions and excretions of individuals of filthy
habits, or crowded together in confined apart
ments—also those generated on ship-board,
in prisons, grave-yards, from exhumation,&c.,
are the sources of so many diseases, that it
would be almost impossible to enumerate
them, and they also impress on all the dis
eases which result from other causes, a low
or typhoid character.
Vegetable decomposition is another great
source from whence the atmosphere is con
taminated, as well as the liquids from the
kitchen, which are allowed to decompose in
the vicinity of dwellings; becoming putrid in
gutters, sinks, and sewers, sending forth cx-

halations scarcely less offensive than those
proceeding from the depositories of privies.
In tracing the numerous causes of atmos
pheric impurity, we find them to be composed
mostly of ammonia, carbonic acid, and sul
phuretted and phosphuretted hydrogen gases.
How can those noxious exhalations be ob
viated? Simply by cleanliness; and this
would consist in the removal of all offensive
matter from our premises. This must be done
thoroughly and frequently, with the occasion
al use of ground gypsum, powdered charcoal,
sulphate of iron and ruuriatic acid, (hydro
chloric acid.) Either of those are powerful
deodorisers, instantly depriving the most of
fensive substances of all appreciable unplea
sant exhalations. If we wish for health,
strength, and the prosperity of the nation,
we must pay strict attention to this subject,
for no puny and feeble race can take the lead
in the developments which are yet to be made
in all the departments of human knowledge ;
the more perfect the health of towns, states
and nations, the more physical and mental
energy, as capital for success, lies in a nation.
The more force to carry out, the more skill
to perfect and bring into practical utility any
of the arts a nation possesses, the greater its
importance among the kingdoms of the earth.

In what a variety of forms and. shapes
cometli the last summons to us, for this body
to separate from the soul—for this corruption
to put on incorruption, and this mortality,
immortality. "'Tis better in battle than in
bed, said my uncle Toby. Ile is very fright
fully in an house, quoth Obcdiah. I never
mind it myself, said Johnathan, upon a
coach box. It must, in my opinion, be most
natural in bed, replied Susannah." And so
each one has his or her particular desire,
with reference to the mode and manner of
their departure from earth to the "undiscov
ered country," although it cannot always be
gratified. We, with a party of friends, were
discussing this matter one evening, when
one of our number, a physician, remarked
that if he could have his choice of exit from
this world, he would prefer to go off in a con
sumption. ''My wife," he said, "died that
way. So gradual and so gentle was her de
mise, that she seemed to steal imperceptibly
away ; and. when the hand of death was
really upon her, I leaned over her, and ask
ed her how she felt. She opened her bright
blue eyes, radiant with a most happy expres
sion of joy, softened with tranquility, and
whispered, "Do not speak, dear husband, I
pray you, but fold your arms around me,
darling—it will be as well. I am just
changing worlds, and oh, how beautiful—
Good bye !"
A QUEER. Swrsorx.—Two men were arrest
ed in Crawfordsville, Indiana, on the 26th, for
a novel swindling operation. They purchas
ed groceries, dry-goods, hardware, &e., and
paid in bills upon the "Western Exchange
Bank," of Indianapolis. When ignorance of
the money was expressed, they produced
Paddock's Baia,: Note Mirror, and pointed to

bills, which are dated .on the 14th inst., and
the Bank Note Mirror on the 15th. These
numbers of the Mirror of that date, distrib

jacent county, merely name the bank, but
say nothing of its value, while the copies
found on the men quote the bills as above
stated. When one of them was asked by the

any instance where money had been quoted
at particular rates by a bank note detector,

when asked whether he thought such an ar

thought it could. The men were held in

the matter. Mr. Paddock must clear this up,
or his Detector will go by the board.

V3 l —John Ghent, a postmaster in West
Florida, who had been carried to Pensacola,
for trial, on a charge of robbing the United
States mail, terminated his life at that place,
by jumping out of a window 32 feet from the
ground. There was an abundance of proof
to convict him on several indictments. He
was once elected to the State Senate from
Walton county, but had generally been a ter
ror to his neighbors. Ile called himself the
"hyena" of West Florida, and boasted that
he could whip any man in the State. The
most astonishing fact is, that he should have
been continued as postmaster, when it was a
notorious circumstance, that he, on more
than one occasion, had been seen by different
persons, on opening the mail, when he came
to what he supposed a money letter, to break
it open, take its contents and thrust it in his
pocket, and exclaim, "that's mine," with an
oath, and had carried on this business for

A Happy Death
Nianageraent of Sdarlet
In a recent Conversation with one of the
most skilful physicians and eminent physi
ologists of this State, who had a long and ex
tensive practice, the conversation turned upon
the treatment of scarlet fever.
"I suppose we remarked, •'that this dis
ease is more dreaded by physicians than any
other, from its capricious character?" "Yes
—for to tell the truth, when we meet with d
case, we really don't know what to do—and;
therefore, I—do nothing." "Would it riot be
best to use at least palliatives?" My whole
practice is this—when the fever first comes
on, and the patient is Lot from fever; I have
him sponged with Cold water; and continue
the treatment as long or as often as it is
agreeable, or relieves the suffering. After
wards, as he becomes weaker, the water is
gradually made warmer; the sensations of
the patient being the guide. At the same
time, lie is allowed to drink all the cold wa:
ter he wants—which he will never do in
large quantities (as he should not) at a time;
if it is always within his reach. I have
known some to drink in this way, by small
portions, a quart in an hour. After a while,
this produces more or less perspiration, which
greatly relieves the symptoms. This is my
whole treatment. Nothing is more perni
cious that the practice of giving powerful
medicine in this disease. The fact is, many
scarlet fever patients are drugged out of ex:
istance 1" We learn that this physician,
with a long and extensive practice, never lost
but two patients of scarlet fever.
The Best Philosophy
The propriety of cultivating feelings of be
nevolence towards fellow-creatures is seldom
denied in the theory, however frequent the
duty may be omitted in practice. It has
been recommended by the eloquence of
heathen pliiosophers, and enforced by some'
extraordinary examples of heathen phila,n- ,
thropy; but as the foundations on which they .
built beautiful theories of virtue were narrow
and confined, the super-structure was frail'
and perishable, and never was the true fourt=
dation discovered, till brought to light by Ja- ,
sus Christ. He first taught.how the obstacles
to benevolence were to be removed, by con
quering lust, pride, self-love and vain glory
which had, till then, constituted a part of the
catalogue of human virtues. lie first taught
the university of its extent, by connecting it
with the love of the common Father and the'
benefactor of all, and made the love of our'
fellow-creatures the test and criterion of our
love to the Creator, while from true devotion
to the Supreme Being, he taught that benev
olence to man must necessarily flow. lie
likewise taught that upon all who are con
vinced of these truths, and were anxious to'
fulfil the divine commandments, divine assist- -
ance would be bestowed. He alone enobled.

The Embarassment of Riches.
Once upon a time, the conversation having
turned, in presence of Dr. Franklin, upon
riches, and a young person in the company
having expressed his surprise that they should•
be attended with such anxiety and solicitude,
instancing one of his acquaintances, who,
though in possession of unbounded wealth;
yet was as busy and more anxious than the
most assiduous clerk in his counting house,
the doctor took an apple from a fruit basket
and presented it to a little child who could
just totter about the room. The child could'
scarcely grasp it in his hand. He then gave'
it another, which occupied the other hand.—
Then choosing a third, remarkable for its'
size and beauty, presented that also. The'
child after many ineffectual attempts to hold
the three, dropped the last on the carpet and
burst into tears. "See there," said the phil
osopher, "there is a little man with more
riches than he can enjoy."
PAY THAT DEBT.—It is a small one, to be
sure, and, apparently, not worth a serious
Why not then pay it? Why not be cern
pelled to suffer the mortification of a dun?—
Why not take that little thorn out of your
finger at once? It will fester if allowed to
remain, and cause ten times the trouble.—
Why not relieve the conscience of that little
load? You will feel the better by so doing.
You contracted the debt knowingly and Wit- -
lingly. Did you not mean to pay it ? Cer- .
tainly, you did. Then, why not at once ?
Every man's delay increases, morally, the
amount of obligation. Remember, too, that
your little debt, and another man's little
debt, and a thousand other men's little debts,
make a little fortune for your creditor; or
they enable him to pay his larger debts, or
feed his workmen and keep his machinery
agoing in times like these. Don't you see .
how it is•? You do? Well, then, remit the
amount at once, and to-night the ghost: of
that debt will not trouble your dreams.

MONEY TROVELES IN lOWA.—On the IBth
ult. a riot occurred in Davenport, lowa, in
consequence of the bankers of that place re
fusing to redeem the notes of the Florence
Bank, of Nebraska, which they bad put in
circulation. The mob assailed the banking
house of Cook Sergeant, and the residence
of Mr. Cook with brickbats and stones. On
Thursday morning, fifteen hundred men,
principally Germans, assembled in the Court
house yard, and after organizing, resolutions
were passed calling upon the bankers to re
deem the notes. A Committee was appoint
ed to wait upon the bankers, and the result
has been that a portion of the notes have
been redeemed, and the redemption of the
residue is promised between now and next
spring. At one time it looked as though
there would be a general row. The military
were under arms, but were not called out.
