The stormy March is come at last,
With wind and cloud and changing skies ;
1 hear the rushing of the blast
That through the snowy valley flies.
Ah ! passing few are those who speak,
Wild stormy month, in praise of thee !
Y'et though thy winds are loud and bleak,
Thou art a welcome month to me.
For thou to northern lands again
The glad and glorious sun dost bring ;
And thou hast joined the gentle train,
And wearest the gentle name of Spring.
And in thy reign of blast and storm
Smiles many a long bright sunny day,
When the changed winds are soft and warm,
And heaven puts on the bloom of May.
Then sing aloud the gushing rills,
And the full springs from frost set free,
That brightly leaping down the hills,
Are just set out to meet the sea.
The year's departing beauty hides
Of wintry storms the sullen threat;
But in thy sternest frown abides
A look of kindly promise yet.
Thou bring'st the hope of those calm skies,
And that soft hue of many showers.
When the wide bloom on earth that lies,
Seems of a brighter world than ours.
THE HOLY S(RIPTI'KF.S.
'Mai all the writings and teachings of morali
ty, philosophy, truth, and righteousness, the
Holy Seriptures stand pre-eminent. At once
grand, sublime, glorious, impressive, the precepts
and records of the Bible strike us as the noblest
ever presented to mankind. Look at its power
ful system of instruction, by the history of tins
past, the admonitions and prophetic warnings
for the future, the comprehensive laws given by
the Divinity—listen to its appeals to the inmost
soul —hear its persuasive voice, calling the wan
derer to his Almighty Friend, pointing the way
to that happy home where the just shall dwell
It is the voice of the All-Just that speaks to
us through its pages—it is the record of His
will—the casket containing the treasures of
Everlasting Truth. There is comfort for the
sorrowing, there is joy for the oppressed, and
there is rest for the weary, in its sacred words
of heavenly peace. Who has ever gone in vain
to its fountain of punty ? What troubled breast
has not been eased by its blessed comforts, or
what dark mind has not been enlightened by the
rays of celestial Hope, when seeking relief from
IU own sad gloom ? No king is so mighty as to
be above fts influences, no philosopher so wise
as to be beyond its counsels, none so wealthy as
to need not its rich grace, none so poor as not to
be able to receive of its great abundance.
The dwellers in the palace and the cottage, in
the mansion and in the hut, may all read and
blew the Great Being who gave thiatolead man
kind to unending bliss and God-like perfection.
Who, then, can read and not profit—who can
1 i-ar its words and disregard them ? Would wc
leave any other vast treasure unheeded ; Would
we pay no attention to the counsels of any other
earnest friend P
Thousands upon thousands have suffered and
i ed for their devotion to its hallowed precepts,
and multitudes have fled from happy homes to
dismal dwellings arnid rocks and mountain caves,
wildernesses and deserts, that they might enjoy
die holy privilege of reading God's Sacred Word
nd acting according to its dictates.
Let us, then, read that we may receive of its
holy blessings—let us apply its truth to the gov
ernment of each act of our lives—let us act one
to another as it enjoins us, and earth may yet be
blessed, life may be deprived of many a sorrow,
ind when this world shall no more number us
'.mong its d wallers, our souls sliail have obtained
*dmiision to that world above, where no evil, no
(ftief, no fear, can aver disturb the bliss which
pervade# its realms. — Frankfurd Htrald.

1 w. some time since walking upon the wharf
where a fishing boat lay, and as I was passing
and re-pas*ing, the master was uttering the most
tremendous oaths. At length I turned to him,
and standing beside his boat, said :
" Sir, I am unacquainted with your business.
What kind of fishes are these ?"
He replied, "They are Cod fish."
*• How long are you usually out in order to ob
tain your load ?"
' Two or three weeks," was the answer.
' At what price do you sell themr"
He informed me,
' Well, have you not * l3rd work to o ***" l a

" Yes, hard woik," said he.
I inquij-fd, " With what do you bait these fish'*'
" With clams."

day when I was fixing my line, my hook fell into
the water, and the fool took hold of it, and 1
drew him in."
44 Now, sir," said I, 44 1 have often thought
that Satan was very much like a fisherman. lie
always baits his hook with that kind of bait
which different sorts of sinners like best; but
when he could catch a profane swearer, he does
not take the trouble to put on any bait at all, for
the fool will always bite at the bare hook."

Selected by a Lady
THE RICH AND POOR.
BY LYDIA JANE I'IEKSON .
44 Oh, mother, I wish I could he as hap
py as Ellen is. She is always cheerful, al
ways has a smile on her lace, while I am
miserable as a wicked spirit. And yet I
have everything I want, while Ellen earns
all she has by sewing. 1 wish I had been
a poor man's daughter. 1 know that the
poor are happier than the wealthy."
44 Yes. my child, 1 do believe they are.
Their wants are so few, and their houses
so small, and need so little attention—and
they are not worried by servants and com
pany with children to grease the carpets
and soil the embroidered chairs and otto
mans. And they arc not obliged to keep
up their position by always "having the
most costly aud fashionable furniture,
dresses, Ac. They merely want clothes
to keep them warm, and something to sat
isfy hunger, which all who will work ard
keep sober can easily obtain. But, Ger
aldine, I hardly think you really wish to
be poor, to give up all retincd and intellec
tual pleasures, and tlunk merely of how
you will get victuals and clothes."
The poor sewing girl's cheek grew red
and pale alternately, while this conversa
tion'was progressing in her presence ; and
during the latter clause burned redder and
redder, until her very brow seemed burn
ing with indignation and distress. She
said nothing, however, until Mrs. Munn
left the apartment, and then in a low calm
voice she inquired—
-44 Do you really imagine, Miss (lerald
ine, that poor people think of nothing but
how they may get victuals and clothes ?"
44 They seem to be always laboring for
that end," replied the thoughtless girl, "and
it is only reasonable to suppose, that their
thoughts are with their employment.'
44 You will find a very few such amongst
the very poorest, Miss (leraldine. and per
mit me to ask, are there not some amongst
the wealthy not merely intellectual, hut
who deprived of their iutellectual wealth,
would be utterly incapable of making a
living. Trust me, there are as many im
beciles born amongst the rich as the poor.
The children of the rich are blest with
every advantage of education ; and if thev
are incapable of solid acquirements, they
are garnished with an outside show of
genteel accomplishments ; and so pass
through the world admired ; and if gpntle,
they are respected and beloved ; when,
had their parents been poor, thev would
have been half-witted, improvident, des
pised creatures. But, (leraldine, if the
poor were really the inferior race your
mother represents them to be, how is it
that so many of thein rise from the ir rank*
to the highest grades of science, honor,
station and riches ? Why is it that some
whose giant genius engraved their names,
in eternal adamant, above the reach of the
billows of time, to shed lustre on mankind
through all time, were born, lived, and
died poor ?"
44 All this may be, Ellen, but then you
know the poor are so apt to be dishonest,
so addicted to vice."
" That is altogether an unjust aspersion,
M is Munn," Ellen said, and the color on
her cheeks deepened again; " Permit me
to assure you, that the poor arc by far the
most honest portion ol society. Every
year there are defaults, as they are termed,
amongst the rich and honorable, to a
thousand times the amount of all the poor
steal. If a rich man's wife or daughter
he convicted of shop-lifting, Phrenology
declares that she lias the organ of acqui
sitiveness unduly developed, and the un
fortunate lady is put under medical treat
ment ; and the very circumstance that
ought to render her crime inexcusable—
namely, that she was under no necessity
—is pleaded in her favor. But if a poor
woman steal a half-worn garment, or a
loaf of bread, she is a vile thief, and must
be proceeded against according to law.
And then the poor are so terribly tempted.
For instance, you have everything that
you can desire, why should you covet
other people's goods ? 1 have only what 1
can earn, and that 1 must divide with
others ; if there were a sum of money ex
posed, which of us would be most tempted
to appropriate it? All things considered,
the jmor are honest to a miracle. And as
to vice, some of the poor get drunk ; but
oil, how many of the rich indulge in the
saint vice, How many rich men go fmrh

the dinner tahle to the coucli or bed, real
ly intoxicated. ITow many of them keep
themselves in a constant slate of excite
ment with costly wine and brandy, and
yet pretend to despise the poor.fellow who
drinks whiskey in a tavern and staggers
home. Ah, Geraldine, if the golden veil
was lifted from before the temple of
wealth, poverty would stand amazed and
abhorrent at the licentiousness, falsehood,
intemperance, intrigue, and abomination
which would he disclosed to its vie v."
44 Well, Ellen, poverty has one able ad
vocate ; but you were not born of poor
parents, 1 know," said Geraldine.
44 Indeed 1 was," replied Ellen earnest
ly, 44 my father was the sou of a poor and
honest bricklayer, and mv mother was the
daughter of a soldier's widow, who brought
up three children, by selling in market the
products of a garden which she cultivated
with her own hands. My father was a
carpenter, and we never wanted in his life
time, but now my mother is a sickly wid
ow, and lias four boys younger than 1 am,
and 1 am only sixteen, and we find it hard
to get along, and keep the boys at school.
But mother says il we can support them
until they are educated, they w ill then be
able to support us. And w hen I feci wea
ry and dispirited. I think of mv voung
brothers with their bright eyes and loving
hearts, and how thev repay all mv toil, bv
th eir strict application, good behaviour and
grateful allection ; and these thoughts bring
again the smile to my lips, and the vigor
to mv hands. And then our evenings at
home are so happy. If our house is low
aud small, and our supper has been coarse
and simple, we pass our evenings i:t read
ing. singing, playing, and instructive con
versation. Oil, .Miss Geraldine, it is very
sweet to work for those we love, who re
pay us with love, and a right u.-e of our
endeavors. And upon my soul, Miss Ger
aldine, 1 would not exchange myself and
mv lot for vou and yours."
44 I believe you Ellen," said (leraldine.
44 Y on are beautiful, and i am not ; vou are
ot use to the world, and 1 am not; vou
are an object of worship to Your young
brothers, mini' despise and fear me ; vou

happy as you are."
Now let us examine into the heraldry

the son of a butcher and apprenticed to a
saddler; he became a violent party poli
tician, and was consequently- not terv nice

and he was rewarded with a fat olllce.
lie lived close, saved his salary-, speculated
successfully, and left his son £30.000.
Mrs. Munn's father commenced life as a
pedlar of small wares, and by parsimony
and sharp bargaining, got to he a merchant
ol some note, and sent his daughter to a
boarding school, where site was accom
plished, and finally succecdad in taking in
the wealthy Mr. Munn. Yet she could say

Perhaps you think it right and just,
Since you are bound by nearer ties,
To greet me with that careless tone,
With those serene a id silent eyes.
So let it be ! 1 only know,
If 1 were in your place to-night,
I would not grieve your spirits so,
For all God's worlds of life and light!
I could not turn, as you have done,
From every memory of the past;
I could not fling, from soul and brow,

Oh ! think how it must deepen all

To feel that you can coldly see
The grief I vainly strive to hide.

With glory from the God of day,
Can never miss the smile she lends
The wild flower withering fast away.

Within your soul's dear light doth live,
Could hardly have the heart to chide

To greet me with that heartless toue,

NEW MOOE OF RAISING WHEAT. —An
experiment has been ttied in lowa, where
two bushels of wheat and one of oats
were mixed and sown together in the fall,
on one acre. The oats shot up rapidly,
and were, ot course,cut down by the frost.
Tlwy, however, furnished a warm cover
ing for the earth, and when the snow fell
among the thick stalks and leaves, they
kept it from blowing away. This cover
ing prevented the winter-killing of the

The result was—an abundant crop, while
land precisely similar alongside of it, and
treated in the same manner, with the ex
