He Whispered. That He bared Me.
lie whisper'd that he loved me;
And, like the trembling air,
When dews are softly falling,
And the blossoms shop in prayer;
Those whispeed words of passion
Broke up the tranquil rest,
Where my heart lay, like a lily,
With the green leaves on its breast
Like that water-lily floating
On the bosom of the deep,
With its fragrant heart unfolding,
From its white and starry sleep—
My soul awoke to being,
With a soft and troubled throe,
As the lotus waves and trembles,
When the sunbeams kiss its snow.
As night bends o'er the roses,
When his brow is wet with rain—
And his breath is rich with fragrance
From the mountain pass and plain—
Tie came, and stood beside me,
With a look of tender pride,
And he whisper - la that he loved me
More than all the world beside!
Then my hands began to tremble
To the pulse that stirr'd in his ;
And my heart beat fast and loudly,
In the tumult of its bliss!
I felt my eyelids drooping.
Till the lashes swept my cheek,
And my soul grew rich with feelings
That my lips can never speak.
To Young Men in the Country Desiring
to Seek their Fortune in the City.
Br HORACE GREELP.,I"
There are this day thousands of capable,
aspiring, ingenuous youth living in the
rural homes of our Country, to whom life by
the parental fireside seems insipid, colorless,
purposeless and who feel or fancy that only in
some great City is there due scope and
career for genious and energies like theirs._
If they will heed a few words of counsel, from
one born and reared by an humble farmer's
fireside, who has trod the path they aspire to
follow, who has had no,reason to quarrel with
his fortune, and who is impelled by no bitter
ness, no disappointment, it may not be the
worse for them. Unasked advice is seldom
taken graciously ' • mine, therefore, shall be
condensed into a few propositions—thus :
I. The spirit by which 3cre are impelled,
not the sphere in which we move, is the vital
manner. He who leads armies, or rules
states, or constructs ocean telegraphs, with
an eye fixed on selfish gain or aggrandize
ment, is base and despicable, as is the menial
or the drudge who labors to like ends. On
the other band, there is no labor, no condi
tion, which a generous, unselfish aim will
not exalt and ennoble. The ostler or the
boot-black, who strives and saves to siipport
and educate. an orphan sister or niece or even
to drive want and woe from the door of a be
loved wife and children, will find his- work
dignified and hallowed by its object. That
object has made hint the peer of the generous
and beneficient in every sphere, and his chan
ces of moral development and perfection
through his daily round of duties are equal
to theirs. •
IL In every walk of life there are opportu
nities for noble doing, and even for achieving
distinction. Judging from the developments
of the.last fifty years, it is probable that the
next great stride in Human Progress is to be
made in the domain of Agriculture, or of Ru
ral Industry. The Steam Engine, the Spin
ning Jenny, the Power Loom, the Jacquard
Machine, and their infinite adaptations and ac
cessories, have wrought such a revolution in
Manufactures that one person's labor to-day,
if devoted to the production of Textile Fa
brics, is probably equal to average produc
tiveness, to that of five persons at any time
prior to the opening of the present century.
Recent occurrences render it almost certain
that Agriculture is about to undergo a like
transformation through the application of
Steam to Plowing, and to most or all the pro
cess of Rural Industry.
HI. City life is and must ever be more de
pendant on other needs and caprices than
that of the Country. The City lives in good
part upon the artificial, and even the mista
ken requirements of the Country. If the
Country had no vices, the City, I apprehend,
would be smaller and stiller. Almost any
general calamity—an epidemic in the City, a
light harvest in the Country—will inevitably
restrict the purchases of the latter and the
resources of the former. In the Country, no
sober, decent person, who is not au utter
stranger to those around him, need ever
starve for want of work. In the City thou
sands are always, while tens of thousands are
sometimes, fruitlessly seeking employment
on any terms. In the Country virtue and
industry are pretty sure to win subsistance
if not competence; in the City, a saint may
starve or freeze, or be compelled to seek his
nightly shelter in the watch-house.
IV. If the prizes of success seem large in
the City, the chances of failure are there in
finitely more numerous. Of the men who en
gage in commerce a large majority fail.. Of
the journals commenced, the books published
not one in ten succeeds. Some of those that
fail deserve a bettor fate ; but the competition
is too great, and the public has not time to
read everything. Many of our broken mer
chants were models of frugality, prudence,
and devotion to business; but Custom mis
sed them, or Clerks robbed them, or Debtors
failed to pay them—and there they are.—
Very worthy and once rich merchants have
died in the almshouse.
V. In the City you always seem to be in
other people's way. If you are eminently
successful in business, you flourish at the ex
pense of less fortunate rivals. If you find
employment as a clerk or journeyman, some
one else who sought and desired the situation,
is disappointed by your success. There are
always too many people trying to live in the
City—more than can find work or make a
living. Hence failure, despondency, addic
tion to drink, ending often in virtual, some
times in palpable suicide. - '
These are truths, Young Men r which I
commend to your thoughtful consideration.
do not say that they should impel all of you
to shun the City—it would be peculiarly un
fit for me, to urge this. I only urge that each
should ask himself these questions-1. Have I
capacities and faculties which can find ade
quate scope only in the City ? 2. Am I so
educated and skilled that if I cannot find the
work I prefer and seek, I am qualified for
something else, - which I am morally certain
to find to.do ? 3. If I should fail in what
purpose to undertake, could I nevertheless
earn and secure a decent livelihood? 4.
Am I sure that I seek the City because I can
there be most useful ? And 5.- If I find my
self not wanted in the City, can I return to
live and labor in the Country without reluc
tance, without difficulty, and without morti
fication ? Ifyon can confidently answer these
questions in the affirmative, Come I and may
a good Providence keep you in the ways of
Virtue, Honor and Peace I
[From the Newburyport Herald.]
We all believe, in some way, our traits are
connected with those of our ancestors. We
know it is physically, and we believe it to be
so mentally. We reason partly from analo
gy, because we see it in the brute creation.
We have gained a great deal of knowledge
about a horse when ^•e know from what
"blood" he sprung. This feeling, to ho sure,
is not so strong with us as in Europe, where
tides and position in society are hereditary,
and so much often depends on an accurate
knowledge of one's ancestry. Yet even here
it is strong, particularly when the individu
al concerned has become eminent. For this
reason, all that relates to Mr. Webster's pa
rentage is peculiarly interesting, for we be
lieve with posterity, he will be regarded as
the great intellectual giant of the age. He
himself, does not seem to have troubled him
self about the matter, though he did some,
for he once employed Joshua Coffin, Esq., of
Newbury, to trace it back for him. At that
time, according to Mr. Coffin's account, he
was mistaken in the name even of his grand
It may not be generally known that both
of Mr. Webster's parents were born in the
immediate vicinity of Newbnryport ; all their
nobility too, was that proudest of nobility—
nature. His father, Ebenezer Webster, was
born:at East Kingston, N. H., about ten miles
from" Newburyport. From the poverty of his
parents, as we suppose, he was adopted by
an influential and wealthy man, Major Eben
ezer Stevens. Mr. Stevens owned a large
tract of unsettled land in New Hampshire,
in a place then called Stevenstown, from
himself, since incorporated as Salisbury. A
portion of this he gave to young Webster,
who went there and settled down at the age
of twenty-two. He built him a log cabin in
which he lived for seven years. Mr. 'Web
ster thus speaks of his Miler :
A man who is not ashamed of himself
need not be ashamed of his early condition.
It did not happen to me to be born in a log
cabin ;• but my elder brothers and sisters
were born in a log cabin, raised among the
snow drifts of New Hampshire, at a period
so early, that when the smoke first arose
from the rude chimney, and curled over the
frozen hills, there was no similar evidence of
-a white man's habitation between it and set
tlements on the rivers of Canada." All this
life lie'remained poor, and as is well known,
was obliged to mortgage his little farm to
raise money to educate his children. Yet
though poor, he was honored, useful and re
spected. He was .always one of the most
prominent citizens of his town, discharging
its most responsible- offices, year after year.
He served often in thp legislature of his State,
as Representative and Senator. He was a
member of the 'Convention called to form a
State Constitution, and also of the one called
to consider the proposed United States Con
stitution. He was appointed in 1791; Judge
of the Court of Common Pleas, for Hills
borough county, which office he held to his
death. He was a Christian, Ws°, active.in all
the affairs of his church.
His revolutionary serviceswere very impor
tant, extending through the whole war. At.
first a captain, he was promoted in 1784 to
the rank of colonel. He was a brave, trusty
and reliable officer, and engaged in many
situations of great responsibility. He,was
in the army when the news came of the birth
of his son Daniel. Calling to his brother-in
law, Stephen Bobanner, he said, " Here, Ste
phen, I have another boy at home, get a
gallon of rum, and we'll be merry." This
of course was before temperance days, when
even good Christians thought it was no harm
to use a little stimulent to help keep the
It is said on one occasion, Captain Web
ster was encamped with General Stark, near
the British, a little stream alone dividing
them, the British, however, in much greater
force. A storm of great length arising, the
Americans found shelter in a barn. When
fair weather appeared, the British had dis
appeared. This seeming like an interposi
tion of Providence, some one proposed pray
" D—n the prayers," said a soldier, " let
those pray who want to." General Stark
was so much incensed at the language, that
he struck him over the shoulder severely
with his sword, saying that the name of God
should not be profaned in his army. They
all went into the barn, where he called on
Captain Webster to lead in prayer, who,
mounted on a hay-stack, prayed with such
fluency and fervency, that as Stephen Bo
banner said, "there never was so much blub
bering at a campmeeting.
Judge Webster's personal appearance was
very fine, to which his son often alluded in
terms of pride. He was tall, stout, very
dark, with keen black eyes, and a powerful
voice—all, as is well known, characteristics
of Daniel. He died in 1806, when his son,
but for whom his own memory would have
been dimmed, was still unknown to fame.
11UNTINODON - ," PA FEBRUARY 16, 1859,
Daniel Webster's Parents.
Judge Webster's second wife, the mother
of Daniel, was Abigal Eastman, born in Sal
isbury, just opposite Newburyport. She was
a tailoress by trade, going round from house
to house, as her services were required.- iler
father was the owner of a small farm. The
family came from' Wales, and first settled in
Salisbury. She had two brothers, Ezekiel
and Daniel, from whom she named two of her
The story of the courtship is thus told.—
Soon after Mr. Webster became a widower,
which was in March, 1774, he came to East
Kensington, his old home, on a visit. A lady
friend said to him "why do you not marry
again ?" "I would if I knew the right one,"
'he replied. "I can tell you,". she said, "one
who will just suit you,--Abigal _Eastman of
Salisbury, about as black as you are." Ile
mounted his horse and' went to Salisbury.—
Reaching the house a young woman came to
the door, whom-lie asked if Abigal Eastman
lived there. She told him she was the one,
when he handed her the letter of introduc
tion he had brought. She invited him in,
and before he left the bargain was made.—
They were married October 13th, 1774.
Both Mr. Webster's parents were persons
of fine physical development, and strong and
good sense, innured to toil, and belonging to
the common ranks of life. No patrician
blood flowed in their veins. They seemed to
spring up like the fabled heroes of old,
from the earth, gave birth to a son by whom
they have been more honored than if they
could have traced their coat of arms through
a line of a thousand senseless and titled an
cestors, and died. Intellectually the race is
dead. No son of Mr. Webster inherited
more than the name, and in fact, we as a
rule, never look for d great man in a great
man's son. Do families have floods and ebbs
of greatness as the tides ? and is the intellect
of a great man the accumulation of succes
sive generations ? Many interesting ques
tions suggest themselves on this subject of
genealogy, which we must reserve for a subse
The Objects of Life.
"They must hunger in frost who Will not work in beat
The old curse (so it is called) pronounced
upon man when he fell from the estate of
original purity, was that, "he should eat his
bread by the sweat of' his brow." This, in
the early condition of society may have been
man,,by the collective labor and
industry of successive generations, has so im
proved all his means of accomplishing, that
labor cannot but be regarded as a pleasure
if pursued in the' proper manner, and for a
worthy end. 'With all the light of Astronomy,
Geology, and scientific discovery—with all
those useful inventions which so much distin
guish this age—together with the facility with
which any one can surround himself with the
luxuries of life—canlabor, the proper exercise
of the faculties, be any longer regarded as a
curse ? And thus, by this very exercise,
piercing almost into the unfathomable, is it
not God-like, is it not a pure pleasure to drink
of fountains flowing from the source eternal ?
There are two species of labor, bodily labor,
and labor of the mind—although they are of
ten combined. These two parts of man's or
ganization require employment. The mind
will be busy, if not upon some useful train of
thoughts, it must needs be evil and foolish.
And the body, although it be placed in one
position and deprived of exercise, calls loudly
for it—and cannot be withheld -without seri
ous injury to health. Now, if we found it
painild to exercise the mind or body in useful
labor, we might conclude that labor is a curse
—but, on the contrary, all who have disci
plined,the mind or body to discharge their
duties towards some worthy object, have found
that to be deprived of the power of labor is
really an affliction. We might illustrate this
by- the example of the celebrated Sir Walter
Scott, who wept when he found in his sick
ness, that he -no longer had the power to move
his pen in obedience to thought. Then again,
exercise of the body conduces to health, and
is often recommended by physicians in dis
ease. The reason of this is, that animal Lie
is a continual process of waste and renewal--
and exercise, by putting the blood in eircula
tion,.materially assists nature. Those who
enjoy the least pleasure in the use of their
senses, are persons of indolence and inactivity.
These persons imagine that enjoyment ought
to be found in doing nothing, and still eating
and drinking every luxury—but they - find it
only cloys the taste. Thus, whilst the luxu
ri,,us idler, instead of deriving pleasure, fre
quently suffers pain, the day-laborer, by the
temperate use ()ibis limbs, really is the wisest
of' the two. -
In fact, the most cruel punishment a man
suffers, except, perhaps, excrutiating bodily
pain, is to he deprived of all employment
of mind and body. The result of labor
therefore, in the - future, as in the past, will
be the discovery of the best way to produce
.and to the products of the earth, the best
manner of governing men socially, the proper
way to worship God, and a true view of the
objects of life. Where the body in any em
ployment, is kept in one position, men should
exercise the memory and reflective faculties.
It is wonderful how much a laborer can ac
'complish in this ‘vay. Doubtles, at the work
bench, there are thousands who are gifted
with all the faculties of philosophers, poets
and moralists, and might shine as such equal
ly with ELInTJ Durtarr, did they but will it.
A Boy CARRIED OVER TILE FALLS OF NIAC
ARA.—A sad accident occured at Niagara
Falls, on Saturday. An adopted son of Mr.
Mills, foreman of the paper mills, accidently
fell into the river, and was carried over the
American Fall. We understand that the lad
was on the ice, near the mills, irhere men bad
-been runniug the drift ice from the flume,
and accidently fell into the swift stream. He
was not seen to fall, but was seen some dis
tance down the river in the rapids, when be
yond the reach of human aid, and speedily
passed over, of course to rise no more alive.
The child was twelve years old, and a lad of
much promise, beloved by his adopted pa
rents, and all who knew him. The calamity
caused much sensation at the village where
it occurred. .

How He Won Her.
DY D. HUDSON.
It was the year 18—, in the spring of the
year, and in the lovely month of May, that
the circumstance occurred which T am about
A. young lady of eccentric character, but
of rare mental endowments, and extraordi
nary personal attractions, had five suitors,
equally assiduous in their attentions. Una
ble to decide upon which she should bestow
her hand, she gave them notice to call upon
her on a certain day, and each state his claims
in the presence of the others.
Four of them were confident of success ;
but the fifth had a downcast look, and sighed
when he gazed on the object of his devotion.
" Gentlemen," said she, "you have honored
me with proposals of marriage, I have as yet.
neither refused nor accepted any of you; state
your claims to my hand, that I may know
upon what grounds I may be justified in be

B. spoke. nest

rich, but I am of noble descent, my forefath
ers were descendants from the first noblemen
of the land. lamof a family with whom
an alliance would be considered au honor to
the wealthiest heiress of the land."
C. stated his claims:
" I am a politician, and have now a repu
tation that older persons have envied. Next
year I shall run for Congress, and have no
doubt of success ; by marrying me your name
will be handed down to posterity.
D. twisted his moustache with the air of an
exquisite, and said :

were turned towards him. Poor fellow, he
was dreadfully embarrassed.

At the end of a month, the five suitors
again appeared. Turning to each one in suc
cession, the lady answered ;
" Riches are not productive of happiness,
boasted nobility of blood is the poorest of all
recommendations, fame is fleeting, and he
that has only the garb of a gentleman, is to
be pitied. I have found out the names of the
papers to which you all subscribe, and have
ascertained that none of you who have boasted
of wealth, nobility, fame and fashion, have
paid for them ; now gentlemen that is a dis
honest act, and in my humble opinion, a dis
honest man is not a suitable person for woman
to confide in. Now Mr. Ls., you take one
newspaper, and I have ascertained that you
have likewise paid for it. Likewise you are
all you pretend to be, you are not cheating
the publisher in order to make a show in the
world, all is well considered. Mr. E., I give
you my hand and fortune."

" Mr. Witt, member of the Royal College
of Surgeons, has published a pamphlet, in
which he states that bicarbonate of ammonia,
is a specific for the cure of Scarlet Fever and
Measles. He cites Dr. Pearl, of Liverpool,
and other practitioners, who have never lost
a case out of hundreds, since adopting this
remedy. Two drachms of the bicarbonate of
ammonia arc dissolved in five ounces of wa

given every two, three or four hours, accord
ing to the urgency of the symptoms. No acid
drinks must be taken, but only water, or
toast and water. The system is to be moved
by a dose of calomel, if necessary. The room
must be well ventilated, but the patient pro
tected from the. slightest cold or draught.
Gargles should also be employed for clearing
the throat. The ammonia seems to counter
act all the poison which causes Scarlatina,
and also acts upon the system by diminish
ing the frequency, and, at the same time, in
creasing the strength of the pulse."

par' If you are well let yourself alone.—
This is our favorite motto. But to those
whose feet are inclined to be cold we suggest!
As soon as you get up in the morning put
both at once in a basin of cold water, so as
to come half way up to the ancles ; keep them
in half a minute in winter, or two in sum
mer, rubbing them both vigorously, wipe dry
and hold to the fire, if convenient, in cold
weather, until every part of your foot feels
as dry as your band, then put on your socks
On going to bed at night draw off your
stockings and hold your feet to the fire until
perfectly dry, and get right into bed. This
is a most pleasant operation, and fully repays
for the trouble of it. No one can sleep well
or refreshingly with cold feet. All Indians
and hunters sleep with their feet to the fire.
Never step from your bed with the naked
feet on an uncarpeted floor. I have known
it to be the exciting cause of months of ill
Wear 'woollen, cotton or silk stockings,
whichever keeps your feet most comfortable;
do not let the experience of another be your
guide for different articles; what is good for
a person whose feet are naturally damp, can
not be good for one whose feet are always
dry. The donkey who had his bag of salt
lightened by swimming a river, advised his
companion who was loaded down with a sack
of wool, to do the same, and having no more
sense than a man or woman, he plunged in,
and in a moment the wool absorbed the wa
ter, increased the burden many fold, and bore
him to the bottom.—Fall's Journal of Health.
A NEW INVENTHM-Mr. Norman Wiard,
of Wisconsin, proposes to construct a water
tight iron boat for the conveyance of passen
n-ers and freight on the ice, with greater
safety, 'economy and speed than can be done
by any other known means of transit.
These boats will entirely supersede the ne
cessity of railroads in winter, where built
parallel to rivers in cold climates.. The track
costs nothing, and is kept in repair without
expense ; a depth of snow which would
stop a train of cars would make no visible
impression on the speed or progress of this
If the ice should fail, the boat would rest
upon the water, and by the power of
ice with en
gines could be launched upon the ce with
greater ease than a locomotive could be re
placed upon the track when off. The boat
which I first propose to build, will be twelve
feet in width by seventy feet in length, and
when resting upon the water would displace
about one foot in depth. It will be propelled
by a pair of locomotive engines, acting on a
single driving-wheel, to which adhesion is
given by various devices.
rfe now wishes to obtain sufficient capital
to enable him to construct one of these
boats, for immediate use on the Upper Mis
A MotramNe Doc.—The Boston Transcript
says, a police officer pointed out a rare instance
of canine affection to-day. A handsome
Scotch terrier has for two or three -week's
past, watched beside a grave in King's Chap
el burying ground, night and day without
cessation, save only occasional intervals of
short duration, when obliged to absent him
self in quest of food to prevent actual starva
tion. During the last severe snow storm the
humane officer first discovered the dog at his
devoted duty, and endeavored to call him
away, for the purpose of giving him shelter ;
but the faithful animal would not leave the
sacred spot, and responded only in wailing,
deeper and more melancholy those of the
storm. Even the subsequent intense cold
weather, with the thermometer at 15 degrees
below zero, did not drive him from his guard,
and he may still be seen daily at his post of
watchfulness over the remains of some be
loved human being, whom he has enshrined
in his affections. The sleepless interest man
ifested by this poor brute would seem to indi
cate that he cherishes some idea of literal
resurrection of his friend, and that he must
be constantly watching for his coming..
PITTSBURGIT, Feb. 1.--Last night about 11
o'clock, a frame house on the outskirts of
Allegheny city, occupied by 3lr. Rodgers, a
carpenter, was totally
_consumed by fire.—
Mr. Rodgers, his wife, and three children,
were burnt to death in the flames; only one
of the family. a boy eleven years of age, be
ing saved. The fire originated in the lower
story, while the family slept above ; and the
flames spread so ropily that it was impossible
to save the inmates. Their charred bodies
were recovered from the ruins to-day, and a
Coroner's inquest has been held, but nothing
was elicited from the evidence to indicate the
origin of the fire. The father was intoxicated
when he retired to rest.
A Mica - m.lx LEGISLATURE haS "pnt its
foot into it" by voting six hundred and fifty
acres of land to Mrs. Rogers, because she
produced four little Rogerses at one and the
same time. It has set a precedent which
may cost the State thousands of acres of lands.
The Detroit Free Press says that Mr. Joh
Burnap, of Sumpter, Wayne county, has ap
plied to the Legislature to divide its favors.
His papers set forth that Mrs. Burnap "has
given birth to nine children at four births,
three of whom were born ten months after
marriage :" that he is a poor man, and, there
fore, prays for a donation of land as in the,
case of Mrs. Rogers.—Boston Post.

chanics, and others, in handling knives, tools

Xleir'A letter has been received in Salt,
Lake city, under the date of the 13th ult.,
giving a deplorable account of the severity
of the weather in the neighborhood of the
South Pass. For four consecutive days the
mercury in the thermometer stood at eighty
degrees below zero. Some fourteen or fifteen
mues at the Sweet Water Station had per

Mr. , Ashton, wrote to Peter K. Doston, Esq.,
the mail agent at Salt Lake, that his hands
were badly frozen, and that he would start
for Fort Bridger in a few days, to have some
of his fingers amputated.
