The Girard Life Insurance Annuity and Trust
Company of Philadelphia,
Office No. 159 Chesnut Street.
Capital $300,000.
Charter Perpetual.
C CONTINUE to make Insurances on Lives on the most
1 favorable terms; receive and execute Trusts, and
receive Deposits on Interest.
The Capital being paid up and invested, together with
accumulated premium fund, affords a perfect security to
the insured. The premium may be paid in yearly, half
yearly, or quarterly payments.
The Company add a BONUS at stated periods to the
insurances for life. This plan of insurance is the most
approved of, and is more generally in use than any other
in Great Britain, (where the subject is best understood by
the people, and where they have had the longest experi
ence,) as appears from the fact that out of 117 Life Insu
rance Companies there, of all kinds, S7 are on this plan.
The first BONUS was appropriated in December, 1 ?41,
amounting to 10 per cent, on the sum insured under the
oldest policies ; to S) per cent., 7i per cent. Sec., Sec., oil
others, in proportion to the time of standing, making an
addition of $100; $67.50; $75, Sec., Sec., to every SIOOO,
originally insured, which is an average of more than 50
per cent, on the premiums paid, and without increasing
the annual payment to the company.
The operation of the Bonus wilt be seen by the follow

Company, thus :

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 !
From God'ifs Lady's Book.
The following directions for the appropriate

Take courage, young man! What if
you are but an humble and obscure ap- ;
prentice—a poor neglected orphan—a j
scoff and a by word to the thoughtless ar.d j
gay, who despise virtue in rags, because I
uf its tatters. 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.
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.
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

j We learn, that during the last year five

away on various occasions- More than
