"PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE."
Up this world, and down this world,
And over this world, and through,
Though drifted about,
And tossed without,
Why, "paddle your own canoe."
What though the sky is heavy with.olouds,
Or shining a field of blue,
If the bleak wind blows,
Or the sunshine glows,
Still, "paddle your own canoe."
What if breakers rise up ahead,
With dark waves rushing through,
More steadily try,
With steadfast eye,
To "paddle your own canoe."
If a hurricane rise in the midnight skies,
And the stare aro lost to view,
Guide safely along,
With smile and song,
And "paddle your own canoe."
Up this world, and down this world,
Over this world, and through,
Though weary and worn,
Still "paddle your own canoe."
Never give up when trials come—
Never grow sad and blue;
Never sit down
With a tear or frown,
But "paddle your own canoe."
There are daisies springing along the shores,
Blooming and sweet for you ;
There are rose•hued dyes
In the autumn skies—
Then "paddle your own canoe."
The Richest Boy in America."
Tho papers are telling about a boy in
New England now fourteen -years of
age, who is supposed to bo tho richest
boy in the United States, because he
has a great deal of money: To our
mind the richest boy in America is tho
one who is good hearted, honest, intel
ligent, ambitious, willing to do right.
Ho is tho one who loves his mother,
and always has a kind word for her;
who loves his sister or sisters, and tries
to help thorn, and regards them with
true affection. He is the boy who does
not call his father the ''old man," but
who loves him, speaks kindly to and
of him, and tries to help him its tiro
hairs of old ago gather fast upon his
The richest boy, is the one who has
pluck to fight his destiny and future.
Ho is the one who has the manhood to
do right and be honest, and is striving
to be somebody; who is above doing a
mean action—who would not tell a lie
to screen himself or betray a friend.
He is the boy who has a heart for oth.
ers; whose young mind is full of no•
ble thoughts for the future, and is de
termined to win a name by good deeds.
This Is the richest boy in America.
Which one of our readers is it
This boy wo like; we would be glad
to see; would like to 1...ke by the hand

Be polite to your children. Do you

Reminiscences of the White House.
The New York Ledger contains the
following mournful yet tender remini
scences of the White House and its in
mates during a few years past. They
embody lessons which we may all
profitably read :
The telegraph announced, a few days
ago, that while Andrew Johnson; late
President of the United States, was at
Athens, Alabama, on his way to Pulas
ki, whore he was to make a speech, be
received intelligence of the' death of
his son, Col. Robert johnson.
Andrew Johnson always exhibited
the tenderest affection for his son, on
whom he had bestowed an excellent
education. Ho was a young man of
superior abilities and remarkably pleas
ant manners. Ile had been a member
of the Legislature of Tennessee, and
the upward path to usefulness and dis
tinction lay open and easy before him.
Only 'one besetting sin forever blight
ed all his bright prospects; ho had an
uncontrollable thirst for strong drink.
The last wo heard of him previous to
the news of his death, he was some
where in an inebriate asylum.
The announcement of Col. Robert
Johnson's decease carries us back to
the White House in the first days of
Andrew Johnson's Administration.
Robert was then one of his father's pri•
vate secretaries. Col. W. A. Brown
ing was another. Browning was one
of the handsomest mon in the world—
tall, muscular, finely formed, with an
open, pleasing countenance, and a
complexion as clear, and a skin as fine
as Ireland or Nantucket gives, to the
fairest of women. He graduated at
Yale College, and was a fine belles let
fres scholar, and a man of many accom
plishments. He had been with Mr.
Johnson in Tennessee for several years,
and went with him to the White House.
But his stay was of short duratien.
Ho received the appointment of Sec
retary of Legation to Alexico. He
never left the country however. The
same habit which has now carried off
young Johnson did his fatal work with
him more speedily. He was extreme
ly popular, and the idol of women.
Yet we have seen him turn from the
loveliest of smiles, and from the gayest
scenes of festivity, and quietly remark:
"My heart is broken—l have no wish
Mr. Browning was married when
quite young to a beautiful girl, who
lived but a short time after her mar
riage. He never seemed to recover,
in any degree, from the shock of her
death. On the contrary, the pain of
the separation seemed constantly to
deepen and grow more poignant in his
heart. The lust time we met him was
in Washington, only a short period be
fore his death. In the course of a brief
conversation he said "I have just
parted with the most beautiful woman
in America; but my heart is buried in
my wife's grave, and I want to die."
Soon afterward he shut himself up in a
room, and deliberately drank whisky
until it killed him.
At the beginning of the time of
which wo speak, another inmate of the
White house. was Preston King. How
jolly he looked and felt—and how his
hearty laugh shook his great, heavy
sides King, though a mild-mannered
man, and a lawyer by education,,had
been an athlete and a fighter in his
youthful days, and was always a hit of
a dandy, weighing, we should say, up
ward of an eighth of a too. He used
to receive at the White House arrayed
in white pants and vest,,and wearing
something like the old pump shoes,
highly polished. As we have said,
Mr. King felt very jolly now. He was
the President's other self, and had
things his own way. He considered
that he had been snubbed and badly
treated by the Seward men, in the
election of Morgan to supersede him,
when be had served only ono term in
the Senate; but cow he was greater
than Seward; for was he, not almost as
good as President, while Seward was
only Secretary of State ? Alas ! that
very elevation to powerwas' he cause
of Mr, King's awful and untimely
death. His influence, his ascendancy,
at the White House was felt to be al,
togther too great by the jealous and
envious politicians with Whose purpo
ses it interfered. They cunningly con
trived to banish him to honorable ex
ile, by making him Collector of the
Port of New York, an office for which
be had neither taste nor adaptation.
Its perplexing, complicated, and bar
losing duties—and, wo have always
thought the discovery of the trick
practiced upon him—preyed upon his
mind, until his reason tottered and
yielded. With the cunning of a de
termined madman, he stole away from
the friendly people who undertook to
watch him, and having purchased a
large bag of shot, ho tied it securely to
his neck, then took passage on a ferry
boat, and sprang from its deck into
the North river. Several months after
wart}, his body rose to the surface, and
floated ashore, where it was dispover
, ad and recognized; and'it iv'as filken to
his hoine at Ogdensburg, and buried.
The good old man who was steward
at the White House then, and whose
face was familiar to so, many—he too
is dead. rla was followed to his grave
by sincere mourners; among whom
wore the President and his family.
When we recall all these, and we
think of Old Aloe, and of his darling
little son Willie, who yielded up"his
young spit-11"in that house—and we
See the great ermtii surging in and out
of the grand receptions of the new
powers that 'be—we pause for a mo
ment to wonder whether the living
who' are there to-day ever think of
those who were there in all the power
and pride of state so short 'a Lime ago,
and iy h Q may pow be flitting as un

Constitution, have been Signalized by
increase of States froth thirteen to thir
ty-seven, with territory enough- to
make out fifty noble commonwealths
ere this century ends; with a popula
tion, forty millions now, that'will pro
bably bo expanded to a round hun
dred millions before "the year' 1900;
with possessions expanded from the
original narrow strip along the ,Atlan
tic coast into a mighty empire, stretch
ing three thousand miles across the
continent to the Pacific Ocean, and up
ward from the Mexican Gulf to the
Northern Lakes and the arctic regions
of Alaska ?
Nearly fifty thousand miles of rail
road have brought all sections of the
Union into quicker communion than
existed between Boston and Washing
ton when the present National Consti
tution was established—while more
than a hundred and fifty thousand
miles of telographenable widely separa
ted States and people to interchange
intelligence more rapidly than could
have been done thirty years ago be
tween the towns of a single county—
the news from all parts'of the nation
now appearing as promptly in our
daily papers as, "local items" from
the different wards of the city.
Tho means thus effective in satisfy
ing the wants and promoting the. com
forts of social and civil life aro eguntly
efficacious for national defence—the
movements of armies across our vast
regions being regulated and facilitated
by the locomotive and the lightning- , --
and all danger of invasion being aver
ted by the fact that the telegraphs
and the railroads enable us promptly
to concentrate volunteers enough to
overwhelm all the armies which the
world could' send 'against our National
Union . . What vistas of national great
ness burst upon the mind when con
templating the future! By the usual
rate of increase, the population of our
country, estimated at forty-two mil
lions in 1870, fifty-six millions in 1880,
seventy-seven million's: in 1890, and a
hundred millions in 1900, will proba
bly exceed three hundred millions in
1940—seventy years from the present
time—a period that will be reached by
many of the children now in our
schools. And yet the National Union
would not then contain, proportion
ately, more than half as much popula
tion as Massachusetts now possesses;
since the whole Union, if peopled like
that State in the ratio of acres, would
contain over six hundred millions.—
With the consciousness that we pos
sess more than three and a half mil
lions of square miles of land, or about
twenty-two hundred millions of acres,
or nearly an acre for every dollar of
national debt; and with the probabili
ty that the lapse of twenty-five years
wilhfearly treble the number of our
present population, who can despair
of the Republic, or of its means to re
pay, in reasonable time, every dollar
of the debt incurred for preserving
our National Union ?
WHY PEOPLE GO TO CHURCH.--The
motives which induce different peoplo
to go to church on Sunday, or any
other day, are diverse, and in any par
ticular case rather difficult to determine
In the words of a poetic correspondent,
some go to spend an hour of idle time,
some to hoar a new organ, and some
to criticise the preacher. Some go to
show their bonnets, some to see their
friends, some to flirt. Some go to gos
sip with their neighbors, and some for
respite from their labors. Some go
from an inward sense of duty, and
some from an outward sense of beauty.
Some go to church because they aro
afraid to do otherwise. Some go to
sing, some to sleep, some to gaze, and
some to weep. But of all• this mixed
and thronging crowd, joining in the
responses loud, how many of them on
Sabbath day go there to hear, to heed
and pray ?

A Remarkable Document.
A well known resident of this city
is about issuing in traot form a most
remarkable document. The idea is
that a day shall be set apart by Chris,
liens of every denomination, wbe►i
prayer shall be offered that at a cer
tain dayand hour the Lord shall set a
sign in the heavens, whereby 'infidels
may know that the Bible •is the woril.
of God. The tracts are to find their•
way all over 'the country; • and wilt
probably excite a considerable degrcifi
of public attention. ' They •have . not
yet been issued, but the reporters of
the Courier 'have , been enabled to se,
cure the manuscript of the document,
and for the first time the matter giv,
en to the reading public. The tract is
"And Elijah came unto all the Peo,
pie and, said : How . long halt ye ' be,
twoen tWo. opinions. If the Lord bu
God, follow .him; but if'Baal, then fcil
low him." , •
Again, we ask, who will be our Ell,

God's professed ministers,
stand forth and say to Infidelity
Thus far shalt thou go, and no farther.
Who will dare to •throw himself into
the stream and check 'the tide that'i
even now carrying thousands, aye,
millions of the brightest and best of
