Though hung with pictures nicely gilded;
Home is where affection calls,
Filled with shrines the heart hath builded.
Home I go watch the faithful dove,
Sailing'ne.tth the heavens above us;
Home is where there's one to love,
Hume is where there's one to love us.
Home's not merely roof and room;
Home needs something to endear it ;
Home is where the heart can bloom—
Where there's some kind heart to cheer it 1

Home is sweet, and only sweet,

[For the Globe.]
Letter from Philadelphia.
DEAR GLOBE :—l've just been wondering if
you could recover from the unexpected sur
prise a letter from me would give you. Im
=agining your consternation Pve made up my
mind to enjoy it. Well now for a nice cozy
chat. As all gossips commence, what do
you think of the weather? lies our climate
been metamorphosed; are we to have wet and
dry seams and the earthquake aceumpapy
ments of our South American neighbors?
How our ice dealers moan over Jack Frost's
eccentric behaviour. What shall we do this
summer? Nary mint julip, no sherry and
ice, no little urchin can be pacified by a pa
rental gift of three cents worth of ice cream.
And our poor skating park proprietors, every
thing ready, only the ice talent engaged,
cricket matches announced at the first oppor
tunity. One of our rinks have lain a floor of
Maine ice and bid defiance to the clerk of the
weather—and as we appreciate enterpr se we
all go and pay far the privilege men have
ceased to treat each other coolly, and the lady
who frozen gentleman with a look is anxious.
ly sought fur by the proprietor of "Eastwicks
Park.' teeing is nu longer put upon wed
ding cake; in fact everythingis on the melt,
although I see by the quotations that butter
and lard's firm—in fact like the thermome
ters, they have an upward tendency. Well,
well, we will drop the subject for I cannot
trent it coolly.
Although late in the day permit me to say
how jolly we all felt here, who love old Hun
tingdon, over the choice of your talented
townsman John Scott as U. S. Senator, and
haven't we a right to feel so. Democrat as
I am, no one could more heartily rejoice over
a choice that reflects so much credit on the
grand old Commonwealth we all Bo dearly
love. Purity, talent, and unostontation in
his person have been fittingly rewarded, and
so should it over be. Would that merit and
not party might ever control the selection of
our public mon. I ivunder if your Senator
would be gratified by the knowledge that
"Huntingdon whiskey" is now the popular
beverage in one at least of our saloons. I
shunt do more than wonder, for fear that
sushi an idea might be looked upon as won
Have you the velocipede fever? We are
getting it bad. Look out fur Westun.ish feats
un wheels. I confidently expect to make ono
of a party aro ninny mouths roll un to start
from Philadelphia by turnpike for a trip to
dloutingdon. Already we have schools where
we are taught just how to do it, and du it well,
Heaven help poor' Philadelphia if some of
your youths prove as fest on wheels as they
do on foot—coal oil Johnny will be voted a
very flat at fastness.
A very funny thing critically considered
transpired here during the week. Grover leas
ed the "Theatre Cuadque" for theatrical per
formances, and on Monday last was to
make his opening with the "Way of the wick
ed." Well, Tuesday and Wednesdays papers
contained criticisms of his rendition of the
many characters he personates, and on the
merit of the play—the l'ress dealing harshly,
the Aye leniently, the Herald praising; but
wonderful to relate the play was not brought
out, and will not be. We are all in a broad
grin, and again have an opportunity to judge
of the reliability of those who cater fur our
wants on paper.
As yet business is dull—every one prepa

A Singular Adventure.
Once upon a time a traveler stepped
into a stage coach. He was young, of
good standing in life. He found six
passengers around him, all gray-head
ed and extremely aged, at least eighty
Winters. Our young traveler, struck
with the singularly mild and happy
aspect which distinguished all his fel
low-passengers, determined to ascer
tain the secret of a long life and art of
making old age comfortable.
He addressed the one apparently
the oldest, who told him he had al
ways led a regular and abstemious life,
eating vegetables and drinking water.
The young man was`rather daunted at
this, inasmuch as be liked the good
things of this life. He addressed the
second, who astonished him by saying
he had always eaten roast beef and
gone to bed regularly fuddled for the
last seventy years, adding that all de
pended upon regularity. Tho third
had prolonged his days by never seek
ing or accepting office; the fourth by
resolutely abstaining from all political
and religious controversies; and the
fifth by going to bed at sunset and ris
ing at dawn. The sixth was appal ,
ently much younger than the other
five—his hair was less gray and there
was more of it—a plaeid smile, deno
ting a perfectly easy conscience, man
tled his face, and his voice was jocund
They were all surprised to learn
that he was ten years the oldest man
in the coach.
"How is it that you have preserved
the freshness of lite r exclaimed the
young traveler. He answered by say
"I have drank water and wine; I
have eaten meal and vegetables; I
have dabbled in politics and written
religious pamphlets; I have sometimes
gone to bed at midnight; and got up
at sunrise and at noon;" he then, fix
ing his eyes upon the young man, con
cluded with this remark —"but I always
pay promptly for my newspapers !"
Then the other old man also chimed
in with—"Of course we always pay
promptly and in advance, for our news
papers. No man deserves long life
who does not do this."
Then the young man resolved that
he also would render himself deserving
of long life—and immediately subscrib
ed for five newspapers, paying for
them all in advance.
He is living yet ! ,
A Helmut-es—James Gibson, of
East Bradford township, Chester Co.,
wont into the West Chester Record of
the other day and wrote his name
against a wall while a fifty-six pound
weight was hanging on his little fin
ger. Gibson is a carpenter, and is
past his three-score years. He made
the following statement to the editor
of the Record :—ln 1825 he would lift
the forge hammer at Hibernia, with
great case, and could shoulder three
bushels of wheat standing, with both
feet in the half bushel. In 1828 could
take a barrel of eider from the wagon,
carry it several steps and place it on
the porch. In 1852 could take a 568)
weight on each little finger and strike
them together above his bead, and
would strap two. 561 b. weights tb.eth
or and take them in his teeth and car
ry them ; could stand a barrel of flour
on its end, and place his finger ends
under the end hoops and-lift it arm's
length. In 1828 lifted seven 56's
with ono hand tied together, and lift
ed a pair of railroad car wheels and axle
at Parkesburg shops. When building a
barn some men were trying to lift a
largo oak sill; he placed two men eu,one
weighing 190, and the other over 200
lbs., and lifted sill and men—onoLof
the men is still living yet, and can be
produced. In 1867 he lifted 925 lbs.,
on the fair ground. As the witnesses
have nearly alt passed away, the
strongest evidence that can be given,
he will go out against the young
men on a big day's work—the har
vest field not excepted. Ho never
used tobacco nor indulged in intex
ieating drinks, and is strong in the
belief that many young men not
only lay a foundation for a weak con
stitution, but a premature grave by
the excessive use of tobacco, and oth
er intemperate habits.

register his name, when the clerk
would assign bim one. He according

his name and the maiden name of his,
wife below it. Insisting 'Ton having

pointiag to the gas burner, “that he

smelt so bad that he put his stocking
over it." lure enough, there was the
stocking, drawn qver the burner and
tied down with a shoestring.

In the village of lived a man
who had once been a Judge of the
county, and well known all over it by
the. name of Judge 11 . He kept
a store and a saw-mill, and was always
sure to have the best of the bargain on
his side, by which he had gained au
ample fortune; and some did not 'mai l
tate to call him the biggest rascal in
the world. He was very conceited
withal, and used to brag of his Wei-.

near to listen. One rainy day, as quite
a number were seated round the stove,
he began as usual to tell of his great
bargains, and at last wound up with
the expression— .
"Nobody has ever cheated me, 'nor
they can't neither." •
"Judge," said an old man, of tin t
company, "I've cheated you more,than
you ever did me."
:'How so ?" said the judge.
"If you promise you won't. go to law
about it, nor do anything, I'll tell you,
or else I won't; you are too much of -a
law character for me."
"Let's hear," cried half a dozen voi•
ees at once.

FISHING FOR Mren.—Several years.
since writes a Yankee correspondent,
my cousin, Miss —, used to keep
a district school. Among those who,
attended it was a little boy of perhaps
four years of age, but too young to
,Ono day, while the
others were at their studios, ho got
possession of a pin . and a string. He,
bent the pin into the' form -of a fish
hook, tied the string to it, and put, on
it a small piece of cheese. He had
seen a. mouse come up through a bole
in a corner of the hearth, and set him
self to bob for it as it had been a - fish.
He was observed and asked by. my
cousin what he was doing.
"Fishing for a mouse," was the re ;
As this pastime was not allowed in
school, the teacher, by way of.punish
ment, ordered him to continue bobbing
for the mouse. So the little follow.sat,
grave as a judge, bobbing away until
soon the mouse took a strong hold of
the cheese, and the boy, giving a. sud
den pull, sprung into the middle of the
room, and swinging the moose round
his head, astonished the whole seheet
with the exclamation, "I thviar; Pye
