A Remarkable Region.
An expedition against the Doxvdcr
Uiver 'Oregon') Indians passed thro'
a very remarkable tract of country
which is described by Mr. L. Bennett,
engineer. Rising from the plain, some
times to Hie altitude of five hundred
feet, were masses of hard clay in the
form ot pyramids or ruined temples,
crowned with spires and minarets,and
worn by the winds into a variety of
fantastic shapes. Often these huge
mas-os of clayey rock were standing
iu the mi (Ft of the plain isolated ami
alone. At other times they stretched
away in long ranges of bare hills.
Veins of trap rock traverse these
! hills, while on the plain around them
are scattered iron, quartz, scoring and
various crystalizcd and igneous rocks
indicating the action of heat. On their
i summits and around their base aro
1 found fragments, and sometimes al
- most perfect fossils ol marine and other
i animals, the most common of which
; were turtles. NI any of those seen by
- Mr. Bennett were Ibrec feet across, and
- one that measured seven feet across
; the shell.
i : Other parlies reported seeing one
i that i mas ired sixteen loet across. —

cliffs, and are more or le-s mutilated,
u but enough remains to show the out

A Prayer for Landlords.
The f Bowing prayer, says the Chris
tian Times, was formerly used in tho
X'rirner, or Book ot Private Devotions,
in the itelbrm Church, until the acces
-3 sion of Queen Mary.of England. We
re-produce it now, in the hope that it
. may bo adopted once more in our
.r churches of all denominations:

of those that possess the grounds, pas
tures, and dwelling places on the earth,
that they, remembering themselves to
be Thy tenants, may not rack and
stretch out tho rents of their houses
and lands, nor yet take unreasonable
fines and incomes, after tho manner ot
covetous worldlings, but so lot them
out to others that the inhabitants
thereof may be able both to pay the 1
rents and also honestly live to nourish

themselves in letting out their tene

THE LITTLE CUB OF TEARS.— We find j
the following North German legend j
in "Thorpe's Yuletide Stories," one of'
Holm's antiquated stories. It is too '
beautiful to remain in the sole keeping !
of antiquaries: "There was a mother
xvho loved her first child with her
whole heart, and thought she could
not. live without it; but tho Almighty
sent a great sickness among children,
which seized this little one. who lav on
its sick bed ex'en to death. Three days
and three nights the mother watched
and wept, and prayed by the side of
her darling child, but it died. The
mother, now alone in the wide world,
gave way to the most violent an ! un
speakable grief; she ate nothing and
drank nothing, and wept, wept, wept,
three long days and three long nights
Fiiis the mother did without ceasing,
calling constantly on her child. The
third night, as she thus sat, overcome
with suliering, in the place where her
child had died, her eyes bathed in tears,
j and faint from grief, the door soltly
opened, and the mother started, for
before her stood her departed child.
It had become a heavenly angel, and
smiled sweetly as innocence, and was j
beautiful like the blessed. 11 had in j
its hand a small cup that was almost !
running over, so full it was. And I lie |
child .-poffe: "Oh! dearest mother,
weep no more for me; the angel of
mourning has collected in this little
cup the tears which you have shed lor

more, it will overflow, and I shall have
no more rest in the grave and no jo}'
in heaven. Therefore, 0 dearest mo- j
ther! weep no more for your child ; for |
it is well and happy, and angels are its i
companions." It then vanished. The!
mother shed no more tears, that she j
might not disturb her child's joy in
When I was sixteen, I fell in love.— ;
There was nothing remarkable in that, '
for most young men of that ago do the
same tiling. But what 1 atu going to
tell you is, how my courtship tormina
it was at a party I sawSallie B ,
who was one of the sweetest girls in
Ticktoxvn ; and, I tell you. she looked
sweet in her white muslin ball-dress, ;
! with her hair falling loosely over her
j j shoulders.
I got an introduction, danced with
her once, twice, thrice, and I was just
the happiest man in ail Ticktoxvn.
Well, at last tho party broke up ;
hut 1 had an invitation to call on Miss
B . That was all I wanted, and I
didn't sleep much before Sunday even
ing—for that was the time I'd fixed to
L ; call.
1 called; saw Mies Sallio to church
—saw her home: and when I left !
! had a pressing invitation to call again,
and I <ud not forget it, I assure you.
At the end of a month 1 was com
j plctc'.y gone. At last I resolved to
pop the question," and fixed on my
next visit for the time; studied "Court
j ship Made Easy" thoroughly, and con- !
eluded I was ready for the task.
The time arrived. Here 1 was, sit
ting by the side of my beloved, with
my arm around her xvaist! I took her
! hand in mine, and screxved upmycour
age to say, " Dear Sallie, do you love ;
1 mo ?"
She made no answer; but her eyes
were east down, and I hoped—yes, I
was certain —she loved me. I put both
my arms around her neck, and pressed
one, txvo, three kisses on her rosy lips.

Variety in Employment.
"Ono tiling at a time" is a thread
bare maxim; within proper limits it is
always applicable; but he who sits
down in a pin manufactory and makes
pin heads for forty years isn't likely to
develop much force and depth of char
r.lihu Burntt. the learned black
smith, can hammer away at his anvil
eight hours per day, (ho believes in
the eight hour system,) and then lay
down his sledge and take up and read
the books and manuscripts of fifty or
sixty different languages. Dr. Lyman
Beecher found relief from his ministe
rial duties in some sand from
one side of his cellar to the other and
in playing with his little grandchildren.
: And what a healthy, cheerful old man
he was—nothing morbid about him.
The venerable Efiphalot Aott. lately
deceased, at the age of eighty-six years,
presented another striking illustration
id the healthiness of feeling, and vigor
of thought that may he preserved bv
variety in employment. For a period
of fifty-six years he was at the head of
I nion college, bearing a load of re
sponsibility, anxiety and labor that
would have broken down an ordinary
man. An intimate friend of his, Prof
Tavlor Lewis, says that in the morn
ing lie might be occupied with stove
patents, or improvements in steam
machinery, or the filling up of* water
'.ots, or troubles over financial opera
tions connected with them, and after
his daily duties in teaching, onerous
as they were, he might he seen in the
evening praying by the bedside of the
dying, or healing by his spiritual con
solations the wounds of afflicted souls.
l)r. Arnold, the great liugby school
master, found time amidst his arduous
duties as a teacher, to prepare his cel
ebrated history of Home. And it has
been facetiously remarked of Daniel
\\ ebsier that it was difficult to tell
which afforded him the most satisfac
tion, his great orations or his line thor
ough bred cattle.
From such as well as
: from the constitution of man, and the
! philosophy of mind, we have long sinco
come to the-conclusion that every far
: mer, mechanic, and other working
man ought to havo at least an hour
! every day during which he Pmld drop
his toil, and cultivate a quite different
portion of his nature, the mind and
soul, by reading, study and reflection;
j while he whose mind, nerves and sym
; pathies have been at work in "the
I school room, or in any sedentary occu
pation, should throw aside his cares
i and engage in some sort of out-door
physical employment, bo it sawing
! wood, cultivating fruit, or some simi
j lar exercise. H.
