Never is my heart so gay
In the budding month of ilay,
Never does it beat a ttme
Half so sweet in blooming Juno,
Never knows such happiness
As on such a day as this.
When October dons hor crown,
And the leaves aro turning brown,
Breathe, sweet children, soft regrets
For the vanished violets ;
Sing you lover', the delights
Of the golden Summer nights ;
Never in the Summer hours
On my way such radiance showers
As from heaven fells softly down,
When the leaves are turning, brown I
Braid your girdles, fresh and gay,
Children in the bloom of May;
Twist your chaplets in young June,
Maidens—they will fade full soon;
Twine ripe roses, July—red,

I will weave my richer crown
When the leaves are turning brown I
THE PEELER'S STORY.
A cold winter's night, several years
since, found a stage-load of passengers
gathered together around the warm
fireof a tavern bar-room Ina New Eng
land village. Shortly after we arrived,
a pedler drove up and ordered that
his horse should be stabled for the
After we had eaten supper, wo re
paired to the bar-room, where the con
versation flowed freely. Several anec
dotes had been related, and finally the
pedlar was asked to give us a story, as
much of his profession wore generally
full of adventures and anecdotes. He
was a short, thick sot man, somewhere
about forty years of age and gave evi
dence of great physical strength. lie
gave his name as Lemuel Viuney, and
his home was in Dover, New Hamp
"Well, gentlemen," ho commenced,
knocking the ashes from his pipe and
putting it in his pocket, "suppose I tell
you about the last things of any conse
quence that happened to me. You Bee
I am now right from the West, and on
my way home for winter quarters. It
was during the early part of last
spring, one pleasant evening, that I
pulled up at the door of a small village
tavern in Hancock County, Indiana. I
said it was pleasant—l meant warm.
I went in and called for supper, and
had my horse taken care of. After I
had eaten, I sat down in the bar-room.
It began to rain about eight o'clock,
and it was very dark out doors. Now
I wanted to be in Jackson the next
morning, for I expected a load of goods
there for me which I intended to dis
pose of on my way home.
"The moon would, rise about mid
night, and I knew if it did not rain I
could get along through the mud very
well after that. SO I asked the land
lord if he would see that my horse was
'fed about midnight, as I wished to bo
off at about two. lie expressed some
surprise, and asked mo why I did not
stop for breakfast. I told him that I
had sold my last load about oat and
that a new lot of goods was waiting for
me at Jackson, and I wanted there bo
fore the express agent loft in the morn
"There were a number of persons
sitting round while I told this, but I
took little notice of them; only one ar•
rested my attention. I had seen then
that week notices for the detection of
a notorious robber. The bills gave a
description of his person, and the man
before me answered very well to it.
Re was a tall, well-formed man, rather
slight in frame and had the appearance
of a gentleman, save that his face bore
those hard, cruel marks which an ob
serving man' cannot mistake• for any
thing but the index of a villainous dis
"When - I went to my chamber, I
asked the landlcird who that man was,
describing the individnil. He said ho
did not know hint. He had come that
afternoon and intended to leave the
next day. The best asked me why I
wished to know, anti T. simply told him
that the man's countenance was famil
iar, and I merely wished to know if I
was over acquainted.
"I was resolved not to let the land
lord into the secret, but to givo in
formation to the shelf, and'porhaps
ho might reach the inn before the vil
lian loft: for I had doubts with regard
to his identity.
"I had an alarm watch, and having
sot it to give the alarm at one o'clock,
I went to sleep. I was aroused at the
proper time and immediately rose and
dressed myself. When I reached the
yard I found the clouds all passed
away and the, moon was shining bright
ly. The hostler was easily aroused
find by two o'clock I was on the road.
The mud was deep, and my herSe
could not.travol very fast. However,
on we went, and in the course of half
an hour I was clear of the village. At.
a short distance ahead lay p r lame tract
of forest', mostly of great pine. The
road lay directly through this wood,
and as near as I can remember, the
distance was twelve miles. Yet the
moon was in the cast and the road run
tibarly west, so; thought I should have
"I had entered this wood, and gone
about half a mile when my wagon
wheels settled with a jump and jerk
ihto tiAleop bole. I uttered tin excla
mation Of astonishment, but that was
not all. I heard another exclamation
frona the same source. What could it
bo? I hooked quietly around but could
see nothing,yet I knew the sound that
I heard was Very close to me: As the
hind wheels came up I felt something
besides the jerk from the hole. 'I
hoard something tumble from one side
to the other of my wagon, and I could
also feel the jar occasioned by the
movement. 11, was simply a man hi
my cart! 1 knew this on the instant.
ot worse I felt puzzled. At first I
invigined that somebody had taken
this method to obtain a ride. My next
idea was that somebody had got in to
sleep there; but 'this passed away as
soon as it came, for no man would
have broken into my cart for that pur
pose. And that thought, gentlemen,
opened my eyes. Who ever was there
had broken in. My next thought was
of the suspicious individual I had seen
at the tavern. Ile heard me say that
my load was all sold out, and of course
he supposed I had money with me. In
this he was right, for 1 bad over two
thousand dollars. I thought he meant
to leave the cart when he supposed I
had reached a safe- place, and then
creep over and shoot me or knock me
down. All this passed through my
mind by the time 1 bad got a rod from
o'ln a few moments my horse was
knee deep in the mud, and I know I
could slip off without noise. So I drew
my pistol, and having twined the reins
about the whip-stock, carefully slipped
down in the mud, and as the cart pass
ed on I went behind and examined the
hasp. The door of the cart lets down
and is fastened by a hasp, which slips
over the staple and is then secured by
a padlock. The padlock was gone, and
the hasp was scented in its own place
by a bit of pine, so that a slight force
from within could break it. My wheel
wrench stood in a leathern bucket on
the side of the Cart, and I quickly took
it out and slipped it into the staple, the
iron handle just sliding down.
"Now I had .him. My cart was al
most new, made of a stout frame of
white oak, and•made on purpose for
hard usage. I did not believe any or
dinary mortal could break out. I got
on to my cart as noiselessly as I got off,
and then urged my horse on, still keep
ing my pistol 11 . 9.n . dy, I knew that at_
the distance of lialf, ii:lniftflifitier 1.
should conic to a hard road, and so I
allowed my horse to pick his own way
through the mud,
"About ton minutes after this, I
heard a motion iu the cart, followed
by a grinding noise, as though some
heavy force was being applied to the
door, I said nothing , but the idea
struck mu that the villain might judge
where I sat, and shoot up through the
top of the cartat me; so .I. sat down on
"Of course I knew that my unex
pected passenger was a villain, for be
must have been awake over since I
started, and nothing in the world but
absolute villainy would have" caused
him to remain quiet long, and then
start up in this particular place, The
thumping and pushing grew louder,
and pretty soon 1 heard a human voice.
"Let me out of OW' and yelled
"I lifted my head so as to make him
think I was in my usual place, and
then asked him what be was doing
"Lot me got out and I will tell you,'
"Tell me what you are in there for.'
"1, got in hero to sleep on the rags,'
"now did you get iu ?' I asked.
"Let me out or I'll shootyou through
the head 1
ust at that moment my horses feet
struck the hard road, and I knew that
the rest of the road to Jackson would
be good , going the distance twelve
miles. I slipped back on the footboard
and took the whip. In fifteen min
utes, we cleared the wood, and away
we wont at a keen jump. The chap
inside kept yelling to be let out.
"Finally ho stopped, and in a few
moments canto the report of a pistol—
one—two—three—four, one right after
the other, I heard the balls whiz over
my head. If I had boon on my beat,
one of these balls if not two would
have gone through me. I popped up
my head again and gave a yell, and
then I said,—
"'O, God, save me!—l'm a dead
"Then I made a shuffling noise, as
though I was fulling off, and finally
settled down on the footboard again.
I now urged up the old mare by giving
her an occasional poke with my whip
stock, and she peeled it faster than
"The man called out to me twico
more pretty soon after this, and as ho
got no reply he mitde some tremen
dous efforts to break the door open,and
as this failed him ho made several at
tempts on the top. But I had no fear
of his doing anything there, for the top
of the cart was fraMed with dovetails,
and each sleeper bolted to the posts
with iron bolts. I had it made so I
could carry loads there. By a❑d by,
after all else had failed, the scamp
commenced to holler "Whoa!" to the
horse, and kept it up, until he became
hoarse. All this time ). kept perfect•
ly 4uiet, holding the reins firmly, and
kept poking the beast with the stock.
We were not an hour going that dozen
miles—not a bit ofit. I hadn't much
fear; perhaps I might, toll the tratb
and say I had none, for I had a good
pistol, and moro than that my passen
ger was safe, yet I was glad when I
came to the old flour barrel factory
that stands at the edge of Jackson
village, anti in ten minutes More haul
ed up in front of thetavorn, and found
a couple of men in the barn cleaning
down some stage horses.
"Well, old fellow . , said I, as I got
down and' wept. Co the back of the
wagon, "you have had a good ride,
haven't you ?"
"Who are' you 7" ho cried, and he
swore as he 'asked the question.
"I am the man you tried to shoot,"
was the reply.
"Where am I? Let me out."
"Look hero, we've came to a safe
stopping place•, and, mind you, my
pistol is ready for you the moment you
show yourself. Now lay quiet."
"By this time the two hostlors had
come to see what was the matter, and
I explained the case. Alter this Igot
one of them to run and rout the sher
iff; and tell him what I believed I'd got
for him. The first streaks of day
light were just coming up, and in half
an hour it would be broad daylight.
In less than that time the sheriff came
and two men with him. I told him the
whole affair in a few words, and then
made for the cart. He told the chap
inside who lie was, and if he made the
least resistance he'd be a dead man. I
then slipped the wrenoh out, and as I
lot the door down the follow made a
spring. I caught him by the leg,and ho
came down on his face, and the mo
ment I saw the chapl recognized him.
Ho was marched to the lock-up, and I
told the sheriff I should remain in town
"After breakfast the sheriff came
down to the tavern and told me that I
had caught the very bird, and that if
I would remain until the next morn
ing I should have the reward of two
hundred dollars which had boon offer•
"I found my goods all safe, paid the
express agent for bringing them from
Indianapolis, and then wont to work
to stow them away in my cart. The
bullet holes were found in the top of
the vehicle just as I expected. They
were in a line, about five inches apart,
and had I been where I usually sit,
two of them must have hit me some
where about the small of the back and
passed upward, for they were sent
with heavy charges of powder, and
his pistols were heavy ones.
On the next morning the sheriff cal
led upon me and paid two hundred
dollars in gold, for ho had made him
self sure that ho had got the right vil
I afterwards found a letter in the
p_o_sto_Mao_atTortsmouth for me, from
the sheriff of Hancock county, inform
ing me that the fellow who had tried
to kill and rob me, was in prison for
TITE WRITING ON THE Rocx..—Ages
upon ages ago the tide was out, and
the muddy beach lay smooth as this
sheet of paper beforo me. A cloud
passed over the sky, and a shower of
big rain or hail came down, and pitted
the mud its thick as loaves on the trees.
A strong wind 'drove the drops, so that
the impressions wore a little one-sided.
They had written their short history
as plain as my pen can write; and
°veil the direction from which the wind
blew was recorded. Some great frogs
and lizards which used to live there,
came hopping over the mud and left
their tracks also deeply printed on the
shore. By and by the great waves
came softly stealing up,•and covered
the whole surface with fine sand, and
so the taacks were seen no more for
ages upon ages. The clay hardened
into solid rock, and so did the sand;
and after these thousands of years had
passed away,•some masons came upon
the curious inscription. Men of science,
who are skilled in reading these stony
leaves of God's great book, read, as
plainly as if they had been present, the
story of that passing shower. It had
been written on the-softest clay but it
was road on solid rock. So your hearts
to day aro like the soft clay. Every
thing stamps them, but the stamps aro
not so easy to remove. They will be
there when you aro grown up to be a
man or woman. 0,
.what deep, dark
prints the bad words of evil associates
make? But how lovely it will be to
reel the record which kind and lov
'actions make upon the soul !
CONCElT.—llardly anything is more
contemptible than that conceit which
rests merely upon social position, the
conceit of those who imagine that they
are thus divorced from the clay of
common men, of those who shrink
with horror from the idea of work, as
something which degrades by its very
contact, and yet who, very likely, owe
their present position to some not re
mote ancestor, who, recognizing his
call to work, lived more honestly in
the world than they do, and was not
ashamed of soiled thumbs. It is ono
of the meanest things Or people to be
ashamed of the work from which they
draw their income, and which glorified
their ancestors more with their soiled
aprons and black gowns than them
selves with their fine ribbons and
flashing jewelry. It might be a fine
thing to be like the lilies, more glori•
ously clothed than Solomon, and doing
nothing, if we were only lilies. Ad
vantageous position is only a more
emphatic call to work; and while
those who hold the advantage may not
be compelled to manual drudgery,they
should recognize the fact that tnanual
drudgery may be performed in the
same spirit as that which oliaracterizes
their own work, and therefore it is
DEPENDENCY.—The race of mankind
would perish, did they cease to aid
each other. From the time the moth
pr binds the child's head, till the mo
ment that some kind assistant wipes

A writer in the Scientific American
tells how the mosquito looks, what he
does for a living, and how be was pro
duced. lt is an interesting sketch, but.
by no moans a compensation for a mos
quito bite, or the "small horror of his
bugle horn." The writer says :
It is unscientific to say that mos
quitos bite, for they have no teeth;
and they have no need of teeth to seize
upon or rrepare their food, for they are
dainty, and take food only in the liquid
form—spoon victuals. They are a chi
alric race, and attack their enemies
with a sort of sword-or lance; no
doubt they consider biting and goug
ing quite vulgar, The lance of the
mosquito is a very beautiful and per
fect'pieco of work; it is smoother than
burnished steel, and its point so fine
and perfect that the most powerful
microscope does not discover a flaw in
it. As the most delicate cambric nee
dle is to the crowbar, so is the mosqui
to's lance to the best Damascus blade.
The lance is worn in a scabbard or
sheath, which in every respect is wor
thy of it; it is often ornamented with
plumes. Man carries his sword at his
side, and the mosquito ou his head.—
The latter arrangement has manifest
and wonderful advantages—the weap
on is always en garde, and does not
impede locomotion by getting entang
led with the legs.
The lance and its sheath being on
the head and being somewhat flexible,
is often called a probocis- This view
of the case is strengthened by the fact
that the scabbard is a suction pipe
through which the mosquito drinks its
food. As aoses struck the rock with
his staff, so the mosquito with a thrust
of his lance pierces the fountain, and
the nectar, gushing into the scabbard,
finds its way to the more sensitive and
vital parts. But is not this calling the
lance and scabbard, a probocis, thus
likening the delicate mosquito to the
monstrous elephant, a little far fetch
The mosquito is the most musical of
all animals. There is no bird which
sings so much. He never tires of his
simple song How happy must he be,
cheerily singing far into the night !
What a volume of • melody' from so
slight a creature I If a man had a
vole() so loud proportionate to his
weight, ho might hold a conversation
across the Atlantic, and there would
be no need of the telegraph. Linnaeus,
ont of compliment to the musical pow
ers of the mosquito, named it Culex
Pipiens. But there are these who eay
that the mosquito has no vocal organs,
and that his notes aro not music : but
the sound produced by the flapping of
his wings, or by souse other similar
and purely mechanical movement.—
Have these detractors music in their
The mosquito might be classed
among our domestic animals, may we
not say among the household pets?—
They are the almost constant compan
ions of man in town and country du
ring the holiday season of the summer.
No home without the mosquito. What
affection ! How they stick to us clos
er than brothers I They often come
a great way—hundreds of miles—to be
with us. Most of them which greet
us in this city have left their distant
homes in Jersey and have made the
perilous journey across a wide river.—
They also love their own society, and
travel in companies which sometimes
comprise millions of individuals—in
swarms which obscure the sun. But
the common place detractors say that
mosouitoes are bred in unwholesome
swamps, and that it is only the wind
which bears them, as it does feathers
and malaria, wherever it listeth.
Lot us inquire about the earliest be
ginning of the mosquito; let us take
him in the egg. The mother mosquito
has notions of naval architecture, and
out of the eggs she lays she constructs
a well modeled boat, with elevated
prow and stern a n d well proportioned
midship. For the hOat Bho' employs
two hundred and fifty to three hun
dred and fifty eggs, building it up
piecemeal, somewhat after the uglainer
Of men, binding together the individu
al eggs by means of a powerful water
proof cement into substantial and com
plete structure. Unfortunately we
are unable to give a receipt for the
water-proof cement; there are many
who would like to have it. The boat
is built on the water, and when com
pleted she is confidently abandoned to
the mercy of the wind arid the wave.
Thanks to that water-proof cement,
she can neither be broken, wetted, nor
sunk; she is safer than if she were
copper-bottomed, The little craft, it
must lie'remembered, is freighted - with
life—each of its 250 or 350 little state
rooms has its tenant. After a few
day& cruising the occupants of the
shells wino forth, and the ship is de
stroyed. But those little creatures are
tinrely not mosquitoes; they appear
More like fish or serpents, - or little
dragons. On closer examination they
prove to be what every one knows un
der the name of "wigglers;" they are
the larva; of the mosquito- They wig
gle about in the well known way fora
week or two, and after changing their
skins two or three times, they assume
quite a new form and movement.—
They are now what the boys call
" tumbles," and are the pupae of the
mosquito: In about a week, if the
weather, &c:, be favorable, something
of the form of the' mosquito may be
seen through the transparent skin of
the tumbler. Shortly the prisoner es
capes from his confinement as a full
fledged and bold mosquito, and soars
away in search of food and pleasure.
