She may not, in the mazy dance, With jewelled maidens vie, She may not smile on courtly swain, With soft bewitching eye ; She cannot boast a form and mein, That lavish wealth ha 3 brought her ; But ah ! she has much fairer charms, The farmer's peerless daughter! The rose and lily on her cheek, Together love to dwell, Her laughing blue eyes wreath around The heart a witching spell; Her smile is bright as morning's glow Upon the dewy plain, And, list'ning to her voice, we dream That spring has come again. The timid fawn is not more wild, Nor yet more gay and free, i The lily's cup is not more pure, In all its purity ; Of all the wild flowers in the wood, Or by the chrystal water. There's none more pure or fair than she, The farmer's peerless daughter. Then tell me not of jewelled fair— The brightest jewel yet, Is in the heart where virtue dwells, And innocence is set! The glow of health upon her cheek, The grace no rule has taught her— The fairest wreath that beauty twines, Is for the farmer's daughter ! miscellaneous. From God'ifs Lady's Book.

Have you an intelligent mind, all untutored tho' it be ? Have you a virtuous aim, a pure desire and an hon est heart ? Depend upon it, one of these days you will be wanted. The time may be long deferred; you may grow to manhood, and you may even reach your prime ere the call is made ; but : virtuous aims, pure desires and honest hearts are too few and sacred not to be appreciated—not to be wanted. Your virtues are not always to be hid den—your poverty shall not always wrap you about as with a mantle—obscurity shall not always veil you from the multi tude. Bo chivalric in your combat with circumstances. Be ever active, however small your sphere of action. It will suie ly enlarge with every movement, and your influence will have increment. 44 In the world's broad field of battle, In the bivouac of life, Be not like dumb driven cattle— Be a hero in the strife." Work on, for suiely you will be want ed, and then comes your reward. Lean upon the sacred verity, '1 have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.' Never despair, for the lives of good men abundantly show that often when clouds are blackest, and the tempest is fiercest, and hope is faintest, a still small voice will he heard saying, 'come hither —you are wanted,' and all your powers will find employment. There lore, take heart, young man, for you will be wanted. Be silent when the fool prates —he will the sooner. New Series—' Vol. 3—N. 87. SLANDER. i es, pasa 11 along, whether you believe it or not—that one side whisper against the character of a virtuous female. You say you don't believe it, but you will use your influence to bear up the false report and pass iton the current. Stiange creatures , are mankind ! How many reputations have been 10-it by a surmise ! Flow many hearts have been bled by a whisper ! ; How many benevolent deeds have been chilled by tbe shrug of a shoulder ! How : many individuals have been shunned by a | gentle mysterious hint! How many chaste 1 bosoms have been wrung with grief by a single nod ! How many graves have been dug by a false report! Yet ytu will pasa ! the slander along ; you will keep it above the waters I v a wag of your tongue, when you might sink it forever. Destroy the passion for telling a tale, we pray yon Lisp not a word that may injure the char acter of another. Be determined to listen to no story that is repeated to the injury of another, and as far as you are concerned, the slander will die. But tell it once, anil it may go as on the wings of the wind, in creasing with each breath, till it has circu lated through the State, and brought to the grave one who might have lived and been ; a blessing to the world. WORKING IN DROUGHT. —Many aro 1 opposed to working corn during periods of drought under the impression that, when thu3 worked in dry weather with the plough, which necessarily cuts up and tears its lateral and fibrous roots, the pro bability is that the blades will wither and burn up, not because the earth has been stirred, but because the plants have been I unnaturally deprived of their means ofsup i plying themselves with food and moisture : from the earth, and because, by that ab sence of rain, their power of reaction lias been suspended, and they cannot re-sup ply themselves with a new series of feed j ers. Thus believing, we hesitate not in ; advancing the opinion, that stirring the earlh with the cultivator is decidedly ben eficial, in even the dryest periods, as all ' such loosenings of the soil serve to pre pare it to absorb and condense the dews, and dispense their refreshing influences to the roots of the growing plants. If the dews fall upon a hard surlace, the sun ex ; hales them before they can possibly do any benefit; whereas, if the surface be | open and in fine tilth, as a necessary con sequent much will sink into the earth be fore the evaporating power of the sun's rays can disadvantageous!}* operate, and thus will a moderate degree of moisture be preserved in the earth at a time when it is most needed. j We learn, that during the last year five j hundred and forty young ladies fainted away on various occasions- More than two hundred of them fell into the arms of young gentlemen. Forty were caught by their aunt's and grandmothers; and only ! one had the misfortune to fall on the floor. —She, however, picked out a soft place to fall upon and was providentially received by an ottoman. LOST THE BET.— A good looking and jovial friend of ours, a day or two since, related in our presence the following : At one of our first hotels a stout, red-faced gentleman, in a white beaver, blue coat and buff vest offered to wager a 'ten spot' that he could close his eyes, and simply by taste naine any sort of liquor in tho house. The bet was taken, and the pro cess of winning or losing commenced forthwith. 1 Thai is genuine Otard,' said tho fat gentleman, tasting from a wine glass—'and tins is—this is whiskey,' and so ofif through the hotel's 'manifest,' of hardware. A wag then poured a few drops of pure water into the glass and handed it to the connoisseur—'This is— ah—ah—this is—(tasting again)—by thun der ! gentlemen, I lose the bet. I never tasted this liquor before /'—Boston Mail. Our fair readers will bear in mind that we are not responsible for the following', and we only publish it to show our utter detestation of the scandalous insinuation it contains : As 'charity covereth a multitude of sins,' even so do long petticoats cover a multi tude of shins ; to say nothing ot undarued stockings. 'Dennis, darlint, oeh, Dennis, what is it you're doing V 'Whist, Biddy. I'se trying an expari ment!' 'Murder ! what is it?' 'What is it, did you say ? Why, its giv ing hot water to the chickens i am, so they'll be afther laying BOILED EGUS !' A merchant examining a hogshead of hardware, on comparing it with the in voice, found all right except one hammer.
