One hour with thee, my God, when daylight breaks,
Over a world thy guardian care has kept,
When the fresh soul from soothing slumber wakes,
To praise the love that watched me while I slept, _
When with new strength my bleadis bounding frac,
The first, best, sweetest hour, I'll give to thee.
One hour with thee, when busy day begins
Her never ceasing round of bustling care,
When I must meet with toil andpain and sins,
And through them all thy cross again-rause bear;
0 then, ton= me for the strife, to be
Faithful to death, VII kneel an hour to thee.
One hour with thee, when rides the glorious sun
High in mid-heaven, and panting nature feels
Lifeless and overpowered,Udd man has done
For one short hour wltliurging life's swift wheels,
in that - deep pause my soul from care shall Bee,
To make that hour of rest, one hour with thee.
One hour with thee,when soddoned twilight flings
Her soothing charm o'er lawn and vale and grove,
When'there breathes up frcim all created things
- The sweet, enthrilling sense of thy deep love;
And when its softening power descends on me,
My swellingleurt And: spend suiheur, with ttiee.
One hour whit thee, my God, when softly night ,
Climbs the high heaven with solemn stop and slow,
thy,eweet stars unutterably bright,
Are' elling forth thy - praise to men below;
0 then, while far from earth my thoughts would Bee,
I'll spend in prayer one joyful hour with thee!
Say, did you o'er a rhymer know,
IVho did not Mink he made a allow,
And fancied all theworld would know
Ilim'as some wonder-poet? .
Who thought his own effusions rare,
And e'en with Milton's - would compare,
But criticism's:mid not bear,
Though others did not know it?
What author ever undertook
To write P romance, or a book,
Who did not think mankind would look
Astonished at his knowledge .
And did you ever note this rule?
No self-conceited dunce from school,
Can once suspect himself a fool,
Because he's been-to-college
Didst ever know aunaiden old,
Who could not pout, and-fret, and seek?,
That who wouldainle on being told-
That singlelife was duty?
Didst ever knO:Wa dashing „
Who did not think' she "cut a awell,n
Dut vexed /tinhorn elutneo to tell
About another's beauty!
Didst ever known '!eottntry squint,":
Who did for °Mee ne'er tuipire„,
And did not “steri a Meths higher"
could not set all things agog,
And seemed to think his school to flog,
Among his honest labors?
Didst ever hear an old bach sigh,
IVith downcast look, and moistened eye,
And with a "better-bull' were nigh,
In summer, and in winter?
And lastly, have you ever found
A man, in all your journeys round,
Whose mind did not IN ith peace abound,
Who promptly paid the primer?
From an intcreTted Washington Letter.
"That lady? Why, where have you hid
yourselves, not to know that celebrity?"
Fair, fat and forty. That is Madame B
. You should see her at night, when
she flashes out in diamonds. Oh! well do I
remember the time when first we met—now
many, many years ago—years that have
I thinned her locks and added to her weight.
The first were thick, dark and lustrous—
the other slender and sylph-like. This was
my first entrance into fashionable life, at
one of Monsieur Bodisco's birth night balls.
The world saw then a youth, fresh from
college. Oh! ever memorable night! I was
under the care of Senator As we en
tered the house two tall specimens of hu
manity, dressed very like militia generals,
met us at the door. Thinking them distin
guished people, I bowed low and solemnly.
They started and bowed.' The scene was
impressive. 'Go on,' said my companion,
the Senator before mentioned; don't be sa
laaming to these fellows, they are servants,
give then your cloak.' The information
was useful but unpleasant. I hurried on,
pulling off my cloak as I went. Just with
in the first door of the drawing-room stood
a fat, little, oily gentleman, bowing, also,
but not as magnificently gotten up as my
first acquaintances. Certain of my game
now, I, in the most superb style, threw over
him my cloak and hurried on. Senator
pulled me back, and to the astonished little
fellow now struggling from under my
I broadcloth, I was presented. I had nearly
I smothered the Russian Minister, who, how
-1 ever laughed merrily at the mistake.
"My endorser, the grave Senator, became
I evidently alarmed. Ire, hardly knowing
what I would accomplish nest, left me, soon
as he possibly could, to my fate. I wan
dered about rather disconsolate. The lights,
music, dancing, fun and laughter, were all
novelties and charming for a while, but I
know no one, and after an hour's looking
on, hunted up my friend the Senator, and
begged him to introduce me to some of the
youni, ladies. He hesitated a moment and
then consented, and I was led up and pre
sented to a magnificent creature I had long
looked upon with silent admiration- Miss
W was seated in an easy nonchanlant
manner, conversing with a circle of gentle
men, and favored me with - a gracious nod.
As I stood wondering whether this was to

A friend of ouri, says thql
Bob duringthe late c5l
he would ' into
moose hunt. Ile left-therii)
with six other gentlemen A
last week. After a 'ridS-44
four hours, they reached tilt
grata wilderdesS: Unvii
horses and sleigh at the'le
started out for a week's spol
the second day in the wild'
and party started a Mose
portions. They sighteit;
and kept on his track
P. M., When the party
they werattompletclv
base dinner.
Our friend said: "Very well, go back if
you please. As for me, I'll have that moose
or perish in the attempt." The party went
back and Bub went ahead. lie kept up the
chase till nearly dusk, when ho got suffici
ently near the critter to give him corlign.—
He \MS a glorious fellow. Like Frank Gran
ger, "six feet high and well proportioned."
Bob was rejoiced at his success. But his
pleasure had one drawback, "what could he
do with him?" Another sourso of uneasi
ness was the excessive cold, and the distance
from the shanty, some eight•miles. While
philosophising upon his folly, night came on,
and as there was no such thing as getting
up a fire, lie was at his wit's and to keep 1
fro freezing. At last he hit upon an expe
lie cut open the moose, took out its en
trails, and crawled in and lay down. The
animal heat kept him as warm as 'pepper
sass/till about midnight, when he fell asleep.
Ile awoke about sunrise, and thought ho
would crawl out and start back to his
friends. There was one pull back to this ar
rangement. After the beat had left the
moose, he had frozen as stiff as a post, an
operation that subjected Bob to as rigid a
confinement as if ho had been locked up in
a Bastile. Bob endeavored to cut himself
out with a knife. But it was no go. He
might as well have undertaken to whittle
granite. Bob spent a most melancholy day,
and finally worried nature into a sound
While thus unconcious, a company of hun
ters came along, discovered the moose, fast
ened a rope to his legs, and set about drag
ging him out of the woods. This movement
awakened Bob, who thought IM was getting
haunted, and, therefore, commenced halloo
ing for help. Such a noise coming from a
dead moose, excited the superstition of the
hunters to such a degree that they abandon
ed their prize and fled as if the devil was
after them. After running about three
miles they met Bob's friends, who had been
out all day trying to discover his wherea
bouts. The hunters told the story of the
haunted moose and the strange noise which
came from his abdomen. Bob's friends
They requested the hunters -to return.—
In a half hour the "haunted ;noose" was
reached. The friends helloed "Bob!" Bob
helloed "bore!" The friends said: "we are
going to cut, look out for the axe," Bob said:
"let drive, better have a damaged head than
legs made of icicles." Tho adventure has
made an impression on Robert.: Ile says
next time he sleeps inside a moose, he will
take good care that it has "leather hinges
on its back."
/OrThe French Doctors have discovered
that ice is safer and better to use in surgical
operations than chloroform. By the appli
cation of pounded ice and common salt to
the diseased parts, thus causing numbness
and insensibility, a Surgeon lately succeed
ed in removing a largo tumor without giving
the patient any pain, and occasioning very
little loss of blood. The only inconvenience
was,•that the Doctor froze his lingers.

begging, and leaving her at once without
opportunity to make other inquiries. At
another shop she was told she could find
such and such articles at the importer's.—
But what could Jenny do with 12 or 20
yards of straw trimming, when she required
only two? Convinced that Broadway would
not furnish her little stock, Jenny turned
into Canal street; and here she went in and
out until heartily tired of being repulsed.—
Finding that manners instead of goods were
suited to the wealth of the purchaser, she
resolved to go hatless. Her pride had been
cut with sharp knives, and a feeling of re
sentment and hardness, and disgust at hu
man nature had crept through her heart.—
She was about to return homeward when
another shop caught her eye. She deter
mined to snakes last attempt. Jenny asked
her question in an imperious mood, expect
ing the usual reply. A kind voice so cheer
fully said, "we will see," that Jenny looked
up with surprise, and met the glance of a
truly soulful face, wearing a smile that
needed no golden bait. The revulsion of
feeling sent the blood tingling to her check.
"There is one unselfish soul then, one shop
keeper that can open her lips without an eye
to my purse,' thought she, while all the
dark angels that had taken possession of her
I were scattered before the sunny host ushered
in by the wand of a few kind words.
The good woman patiently selected the
required articles, told her of her own accord,
how to work them most economically, di-
I rected where the materials she could not
supply might be obtained most cheaply, and
gave a few hints as to the most tasteful dis
posal of the trimming; and said she, with
evident interest in the purchase, "Come,
when you have finished, and let me see it."
Jenny went home with an elevation of
spirits which were far more indebted to the
generous kindness of the stranger, than to
the really charming purchases made with
her limited sum. While busy with the fairy
gauze and laces, she exclaimed more than
once, in praise of the kind heart which had
proved as royal as the kingly name of its
"Thirteen years behind the counter have
not caused her to forget the Golden Rule of
Christ, and it was worth a mortifying expe
rience to make the discovery."—N: Bean-

igree as minutely as a spoitsnun would that
of his favorite race-horse. Still it was urged
upon him that no rabbit was in the upon
field, and a bet of a quart of whiskey started
him out with the one who doubted his word,
to find the animal. lie roamed carelessly
over the field for a time, and at last turning
to his doubter, beckoned for him to ap
proach. When he came up he pointed to a
little tuft of grass and said, "there he is. ,
dont you see him?" Not a rabbit could the
unpractised eye of his companion discover,
and he insisted that none was there. "Why
don't you see his eye," said the rabbit seer?
NO, was the reply, "and there is no rabbit
there." "Well, now just stand back, and
I'll show you," and then rising his gun lie
blazed away, and sure enough, out of the
little bunch of grass was kicked a dead rab
bit. Every one knew this peculiarity, and
it became a common expression after a hun
ter had carefully looked over a piece of
ground, "that nobody but—what shall we
call him? If he is alive he might not like
to see his name in the paper—llickory
Withe, shall be our cognomen—"llollC but

And thus we give our sketch of the celebra
ted rabbit seer of Chester Valley.— W. C.
One of the Peter Funk "Gift Enterprise"
firms in a large city, sent a package of tick
ets to n postmaster in Maine, the postage on
which was fifteen cents unpaid. They got
the following hard rap over the knuckles,
from the indignant official..
"I herewith return your tickets. You
must be fools as well as knaves, to suppose
that I will aid you in swindling my neigh
hors, and pay all the expenses myself."
To which he in a fow days received the
annexed settler.
"Sin—We perhaps owe you an apology
for sending the parcel, postage unpaid.
"As wo infer from the phraseology of
your note, that you aro willing to swindle
your neighbors if we will pay all the ex
penses, please give ns your lowest terms on
which you will act as our agent.
"I'. S.—All communications shall be
strictly confidential."
This note was promptly returned, with
the following endorsement across its face, by
the post-master.
"It seems you are not only fools and
knaves, but blackguards also. Ask my
neighbors if they think I srouhl "swindle"
them either at my own expense or that of
any one else."
To which this answer came back by next
"We have inquired of your neighbors
long ago, and that is the reason we applied
to you in the first instance."
fore follows the post master's final reply:
"r acknowledge the corn. Send us your
street and number, so that I can call upon
you when I come to the city, and I may con
clude to aid your Enterprise."
But that was the last thing that the Gift
gentleman could think of doing. In fact se
crecy as to his locality, was quite essential
in keeping out of the clutches of the police.

Never befbro or since have I seen so many'
tears shed as then flowed forth from the
eyes of the vast assembly: Every eye was.
moist with weeping. Eleven years have
passed away since that day. The old hero .
has been more than ten in his silent and!.
narrow home. The voice - that cheered the:
drooping fight, and thundered in the rear of •
routed armies is silent forever. The old
preacher, too, has fought his last battle, laid
his armor by, and gone home to his eternal .
A few years ago, a poor mechanic, of a
very quarrelsome disposition, settled near a
Christian farmer, whose friends expressed
to him their sympathy in the annoyance Ito
was likely to receive. 'Never mind,' said
the good man, I have never yet quarrelled
with a neighbor, and I am too old to begin
Six months passed, and then began a se
ries of petty annoyances, which the farmer
bore uncomplainingly; but this only irritated
his neighbor the more, until meeting the
farmer one day in the height of passion, ho
he poured upon him a torrent of insult and
ahuse.—Triend,' said the farmer gently,
'no man under the influence of passion can
reason clearly; come to me calmly and we
will discuss your grievances.' The angry
man raised his clenched hand to strike him,
but was retrained by some unseen influence,
and both went on their way.
About a week after, the mechanic was
passing the farmer's house with a load .of
grain. It was at the foot of a hill, and the
load was heavy. lie coaxed, threatened
and beat his oxen, but all to no purpose.
He must leave his load or ask aid of the
man he had injured. Presently be saw the
farmer unhitch his oxen from a load of hay,
and come towards him. With kindly words
the farmer proffered his assistance, drew
him safely to the summit, and without wait
ing fur thanks, departed as he came. here
was a simple act, but mighty in its influence.
—The mechanic was humbled, acknowledg
ed the purity and power of that religion that
could 'bear and forbear,' and has since that
time never willingly provoked his friend.
since, en unexploded bomb-shell was
ploughed up in the field of Mr. Caleb Britt
ton, Jr., in Chester county, about a quarter
of a mile north of the village of Chad's Ford,
and on the bloody battle groind of Septem
ber 11, 1777. It contained a considerable
quantity of powder, and is yet a perfect
missile of death, with the exception of
having lost its match, and being considera
bly rusted. The field in which it was found
is within a stone's throw of the Brandywine,
and lies in the rale directly between the
hills on which the American army under
Wayne, and the British under linyphansen
were stationed; but whether it was sent on
its death errand from the patriot gun, or
from the royal mortar is a question which
may not be solved. This shell has been
buried in the earth for almost fourscore
years, and has at last been turned up by
the plowshare to make forgetful man think
of the times when the foes of liberty were
abroad in this fair land.
