< 4 I LOVE YOl !"
I love you! 'Tis the simplest way
The thing 1 feet to tell ?
Yet, if I told it all the day,
You'd never guess how well.
You are my comfort and my light,
My very life you seem ;
t think of you all day—all night
'Tis but of you I dream.
There's pleasure in the lightest word
That you may speak to me ;
My soul is like the rEolian chord,
And vibrates still to thee.
1 never read the love-song yet,
So thrilling, fond or true,
But in mv own heart I've met
Some kinder thought for you.
I bless the shadows on thy face,
The light upon your hair ;
1 like for hours to sit and trace
The passing changes thete;
1 love to hear your voice's tone.
Although you should not say
A single word to dream upon,
When that has died away.
Oh, you are kindly as the beam
That warms where'er it plays,
Aod you are gentle as a dream
Of happy future days ;
And you are strong to do the right,
And swift the wrong to flee ;
And if you were not half so bright,
You're all the world to me !
When you lie down at night, compose
your spirits as if you were not to wake till
the heavens be no more. And when you
awake in the morning, consider that new
day as your last, and live accordingly.—
Surely that night cometh, of which you
will never see tire morning, or the morning
•of which you will never see the night; but
which of your mornings or nights will be
such you know not. Let the mantle of
worldly enjoyments hang loose about you,
that it may ire easily dropped when death
"omes to carry you into another world.—
When the com is forsaking the ground, it
is ready for the sickle ; -when the fruit is
ripe, it fails off the tree easily. So when
a christian heart is truly weaned from the
world, he is prepared for death, and it will
be the more easy for him. A heart disen
gaged from the world is a heavenly one,
;ind then we are ready for a heaven, when
our heart is there before us.
IJnppv thoughts come stealing upon ns
as we look upon the faces of those we
loved in other days, those we have been
separated from for years, aad who return
again with all the changes of time and
thought upon their brow. The joyous
feeling that arises upon meeting with old
familiar faces, cordial shaking of hands, and
the hearty congratulations that follow—
who does not remember them ? Rut when
those we love and cherish leave us forever
—-when their spirits fly away from earth
to heaven, who would not give all on earth
tor a picture, even a faint resemblance, of
features once so animated and beautiful !
How many bright eyes grow dim, how
many cheeks grow pale, how many ioveJy
forms fade away into the tomb, leaving
not a shadow of their loveliness behind '
And the evening is beautiful ! and the
heavens are full ol stars, mirroring their
silvery faces in the snow ; and the still
M oods are jeweled with ice-diamonds and
waiting waveless the rising moon. And
the Northern Lights like zephyrs zoned
with rainbows, arc waltzing on the pearly
pavements of the polar sky. And the
mountains like waves of a silver sea, rising
heavenward to greet the stars ; and the sky
like a sea of molten sapphire, with its
golden tresses dropping fondly on the brow
of the mountains. It is beautiful; too
beautiful to shut out of our sight. Let us
ail go out doors and read a few paragraphs
in the album of the heavens. For this
firmament above is the great album of the
Freator, and the suns are the syllables and
stars arc the letters, with which he re- j
i-ten d his handiworks. And the first
aian, on the first evening of this new crea
tion, looked up into this sky-record, and
! :e.i to read the illumined manuscript ol
be- Maker. And the generations bclore
flood gazed at these same stars; and
"an that saw the evenings of nearly a
thousand years on the earth, looked up at
'he'se ante golden eves of heaven, which
now look down on us; and they called
r 'a m by name, and by their light they j
-•'eve their flocks to new pastures in the
'id world. And when the fountains of the
■ '•>! deep were broken up, and the win
! heaven were opened, and tl'.® .

Now, my young friends, a deluge will
never come again to burv out of sight this
green, peopled world ; but storms will
come, and winds will come, and vou mav
drift far away from the home of vour
childhood. And what makes that home
If all your relations and friends should go
with you to far-off-lands, and live with you
there, would you not have left behind a
great deal of your home ? Yes ; vou
could not take with you the old homestead,
the elms and the oaks under which you
played, the hills you climbed in summer
to see the sun go down in the west, or in
the winter with your sled ; the brook that
purled through the meadows ; the moun
tains looming up in the distance, like huge
cushions of green velvet for the sky ; the
fields of alternate green and yellow, and
the far-off-woods. Hut begin now to look
up into this blue world above ; to make
these star fields a part of your home ; to
hring these glorious constellations into the
circle of vour acquaintance ; to call them
by name, to associate them with all the
objects to which your home affections
ding, and you may carry our home with
you the world over, t )rion, A returns,
jjootes, Virgo, the celestial companions of
Job, Noah and David, will be yours, in
every place and every condition ; acquaint
ances, neighbors to vour paternal homes,
it may be your lot to see hut little space
of the earth's surface ; and to know but
little more of the geography of the earth
than what you learn from your map. Hut
here you may study the geography of the
heavens, and see every celestial territory
it describes. Without going a mile from
your father's door, your eye may travel
over worlds that arithmetic cannot com
pute nor geometry measure. Your eyes
can do this, and when yon have reached
the extreme limit of their vision your
thoughts may go on forever into 'worlds
bevond. Young friends, suppose you
spend a half hour every bright evening out
in the open air ; in appropriating these
brilliant constellations; in bringing them
within the home-circle of your acquaint

floods cam# and a long night of darkness,
the good man in the dark remembered the
stars that studded the firmament in his
boyhood's time, and the names they were
called by among the fathers of the human
race. And when tire deep, black clouds
rolled away, they shone out of their old
places upon him, and he felt at home again,
though floating over the shoreless waste of
waters, without compass, chart, or helm.
There they were, just as they were set in
the sky in the morning of creation. The
waters that had washed from the earth
every trace of man's existence, had not
quenched one of the 4 lesser lights' of
heaven, or moved it a hair from its place.
The splendid Orion had not lost a jewel
from his belt; neither the deluge nor the
darkness had 4 loosed his bands.' fie
walked the same king, and wielded the
same sceptre among the same stars this
evening, as in the tirst evening that man
tled the earth. Theiiery Betelguese -hone
with the same red brilliancy, and the sharp
eyed Rigel glowed in the left foot, a celes
tial diamond of the first water. There
were the little Pleiades, and the great Dog
star. and the long Scorpion, trailing its gems
along the southern sky ; and the eleven
stars that tlie young Joseph saw in his
dream ; and the seven stars which the first
born child of Adam saw in his infancy.
These were home stars to Noah ; they
were all that was left of the drowned
world, that he had seen and loved in his
youth. He knew not whither the saiiless,
unruddered ark had borne him ; the tallest
mountain on the earth was buried deep
beneath the waters ; everything bad been
swept away but the stars which he had
learned by name, perhaps in the tent of
his grandfather, Methusaleh, who remem
bered Adam. And he felt himselfat home.
FRIDAY KVEAI.\, Jlli 10, 1850.
41 He sits, and will forever sit."
There is belonging to the raec of human
bipeds a sort of troublesome beings, who,
setting no value on their own time, care
very little how much they trespass upon
that of their more industrious neighbors.
They are a sort of stay-forever persons,
who, having talked over the whole world
at one sitting, commence and talk it over
anew from beginning to end, before they
are ready to take their leave ; in a word,
they sit, and sit, and sit, long enough to
justify the motto we have just quoted, lie
side their disposition to hang on, there is
generally about these' persons a wonderful
habitude, a slowness in taking a hint, un
paralleled with the rest of the human race.
To give a single instance of this sitting
propensity, we will introduce the story of
a plain spoken old lady from the land of
steady habits.
44 I never seed the beat of that ere Cap
tain bpinout, said she ; 44 would vou be
lieve it, he called at our house last night
just as 1 was done milking, and wanted to
borrow my brass kettle for his wife to make
apple sauce in. 4 Ob, yes,' savs 1. 4 she
may have it and welcome, Captain Spin
out,' and I went directly and fetched it out
of the back room and set it down before
him. \\ (11, presently our tea was ready,
and I couldn't do no more than ax him to
take a cup with us. 4 Oil, no,' he said,
lie 4 couldn't stay a minit;' but, however,
he concluded he'd take a drink of cider
wit'ii my husband ; and so he did. Well,
alter I d done tea, I took my knitting work,
and sat down till I rather thought all honest
people should be abed. But Captain Spin
out had forgot bis hurry, and there he was
sitin and talk in' with my husband as fast
as ever. I hate, above all things, to be
rude, but 1 couldn't help of hinlin' to the
Captain that it was growin'late, and maybe
his wife was waitin' for the kettle. But
he didn't seem to take the hint at all—there
he sot, and sot, and sot.
44 Finding that words wouldn't have any
effect, I next rolled up my knitting work,
sot back the chairs, and told the garls it
was time to go to bed. Hut the Captain
didn't nnnd it no more than if it had been
the bite of a Ilea—but there lie sot. and sot.
44 W ell, next 1 pulled oil' my shoes, roast
ed in v feet, as 1 commonly do jist afore
goin to bed ; hut the Captain didn't mind
it no more than nothin' at all—there he sot,
and sot, and sot.
44 1 then kivcred up the lire, and thought
he couldn't then help takin' the hint ; but
la me ! he didn t take no notice on't at all
—not the least grain in tin- world—but
there he sot, and sot, and sot.
44 Thinks I, you're pretty slow at takin'
a hint, Captain Spinout; so 1 sed, sort o'
plainly, that 1 thought it was bed lime—
speakin' always to my husband—but |ist
so as I thought the Captain couldn't help
takin' it to himsell, hut la ! it did no good
at all—lor there he sot, and sot. and sot.
44 Sfeiu* there warm no likelihood of his
goin' home, I axed him to stay all night.
4 1 Mi, no,' lie sed, he 4 couldn't possibly
stop a minitso seeing there warn't no
use in sav in' anything, I went to bed. Hut
la me ! would you think it, when 1 got up
in the mornin', as sure as you're alive,
there he was a sotteu vet !"

&e. Amsterdani, ICRS:' 44 And now
give me leave to tell you a story I met
with when 1 lived in Koine. Going with
a Kotriane to see some antiquityes, he
showed me a chapll dedicated to one St.
Kvona. a lawyer of IJrittainne, who he said
came to Rome to entreat the Pope to give
the lawyers of Krittainne a patron; to
which the Rope replied that he knew of
no saint hut what was disposed of to other
professions. At which Kvona was very
sad, and earnestly begged of the i'ope to
think of one for.him. At last the Pope
proposed to Kvona that he should go round
the church of St. John de Latcra blindfold,
and, after he had said so many Ave Marias,
that the first saint he laid hold of should
be his patron, which the good lawyer wil
lingly undertook ; and at the end of his
Ave Marye, he stopt at St. Michael's altar,
where he laid hold of the Divell under St.
Michael's lech and cried out, 4 This is our
saint—let him he our patron.' So, our
lawyer being unhlindfoldcd and seeing what
a patron he had chosen, he went to his
lodgings so dejected, that in a few months
after lie died."
Apvantaof.s of Eaki.y Tkaixino. —
I he following dialogue is reported to have
passed at the Queen's County Assizes be
tween a medical witness and a barrister :
Mr. Hayes (the barrister) : 4 If a person
lying on wet straw were deprived of all
the comforts or necessaries of life, would
it not hasten death ."
Dr. Kdge : 4 That would greatly depend
on whether they have been accustomed to

that il a person lived in a hnrsepond, it
Would not he injurious to him ?'
Dr. Kdge : 4 | think not, if he had lived
lor sixty or sevnitv years in it."
A few years since, a Dutch vessel landed
at Mobile, a goodly number of the 4 Sour
krout'-dom, one of whom found his way
tip the Tombigbee, and seeing on its banks
an opening for an enterprising Dutchman,
landed and built himself a warehouse.
A while alter this naturalization, the Sheriff
summoned the aforesaid Dutchman to serve
on the jury. Dutch was very anxious to
be excused, as the cotton bales were com
ing in very rapidly, and a rival warehouse
was becoming very troublesome.
W bile the jury therefore, was being
empannelled, be went to Mr. L , a
distinguished lawyer, in order to have hjm
excused. Mr. L informed him thai
the Judge would not excuse him on the
plea of attending to his warehouse.
Never iniiul,' says Dutch, 4 you tell the
Judge 1 vnntto be excused, and I'll tell him
de reason.'
So when the court convened, Mr. 1.
rose and said— 4 May it please vour honor,
a juror wishes to be excused.'
4 On what ground, Mr. L ?' says
the Judge.
4 There he is.' said .Mr. 1. , ♦ he will
present his excuse.'
\\ hile this conversation was taking place,
up rose the Dutchman.
4 \V hat, sir, is your "excuse ?' savs the
Dutchman— 4 Snax Snoorks.'
Judge— 4 \\ hit did vou sav, sir
Dutchman— 4 Snax Snoorks.'
Judge— 4 Come nearer, sir; 1 cannot
hear what vou sav.'
Dutchman—• Snax Snoorks !'
Judge (in great anger)—• Mr. Sheriff,
what did you summons this Dutchman for
lie can neither speak nor understand a
word of English.'
Dutchman— * Snax Snoorks ?'
Judge—• \ou can leave, sir."
Dutchman— 4 Snax Snoorks !'
Judge (overflowing with ire) — 4 Mr.
Sheriff take that Dutchman out of
the court ; attd sir, I shall have vou fined
for a neglect of duty, in summoning a man
who can say nothing hut 4 Snax Snoorks !"
Dutch permitted himself to he carried out
of Court muttering Dutch as he went.
After getting out of the court house,
some one \\ ho had witnessed the scene,
asked him why he did not go when the
Judge told him ?
4 Oh,' says Dutch, 4 I vos afraid if I
understand 4 you niav go,' de pulee vould
think I speak English.—.V. Spirit of
the Time,.
" Now. girls," said our friend Mrs.
Bigelow to her daughters, the other dav,
" you must get husbands as soon as pos
sible. or they'll be all murdered."
Why, so, ma?" inquired one.
" \\ hy, I see by the paper that we've
got almost fifteen thousand post-ofiiees.
and nearly all on 'em dispatches a mail
