It is a noticeable fact, in history that the mothers ol all the truly great men, were women ol uncommon talent, or great energy, thus proving conclusively, that the charac ter of mgn. takes its cast from that of the mother. First impressions are the strongest, and no matter what causes are brought to bear in after life, the lessons learned in childhood are sure to leave their indelible impress on the mind of man. Few mothers realise the responsibility of rearing a fami ly of children. They are conscious of the trouble, the vexations, the sorrows they have to undergo, but how often do they reflect that they are forming the characters, for good or evil, of men who will, perhaps, distinguish themselves in tbe world ? Mothers will do well to think deeply op this important sub ject. It is said of Sir Walter Scoti's mother, that she was a small, plain, well-educated wom an, of excellent sense, very charitable, and a gieat lover of poetry and painting—and on the whole a superior woman. 'Tis evident, from the writings of Sir Walter that he had an uncommon gift in word : painting. It is said of Byrou's mother, that she was a proud woman, hasty, violent and unreason able, with not principle sufficient to restrain her temper. Unhappily, Byron inherited his mo'her's inflamabls temper, and instead of being subdued and softened by the harsh ness with which she often treated him, be was rmdered more passionate by it. Thus ye see that this infirmity, which by gentleness and kind treatment might have been greatly checked, if not cured, was tuf fered to enslave one of the most talented, brilliant, poetical minds which has ever shone among men, entailing a life of misery upon is possessor, and an early termination to his career! The mother of Bonapart was a woman of great beauty and energy of character. This last trait has been strikingly exemplified throughout his whole life. The mother of Hubert Burns was a woman ef moderate personal attractions—hut in ev* ery other respect a remarkable woman. She was blessed with a singular equanimity of temper, and her religious feeling were con stant and deep, fliey ÜBe( j t 0 p,; ve w ; n g 9 t 0 the weary hours of her checkered liio by cbaunting old songs and ballads, of which she bad a large store. Her preception of character was very quick and keen, and she lived to a good old age, rejoicing in the fame of her poet son, and partaking of the fruits of his genius. Lord Bacon's mother is said to have been a woman of superior mind, of great learning, and deep piety. Little is said of the mother of Nero, except that she murdered her second husband, the Eutperor Cladius, about four years after her marriage. Do you wonder that Nero was a cruel Emperor, if his motbej was a murder ess ? Iluw strongly does the mother of Net ro, an anuient tyrant, contrast with the moth ers of our modern philanthropists and statesT men !—the mother of Washington, whose history is familiar to every reader of history; the mother of John Jay, who deserves a place by the side of Washington. Mrs. Jay is said 'o have bad a cultivated mind, a line imagi nation, and affectionate temper. The mother of Patrick Henry was a wom an of great excellence of character, and marked by superior conversational pov ers Ilence, doubtless, the oratorical gift of her son. With the mother of the Adamses all are acquainted. Where will we find more real practical common sense than Jno.Quin cy's mother possessed ? The mother's im press was truly stamped upon her son. ANECDOTE OE WEBSTER. It being one of the delights of Daniel Web ster to annually visit the Granite hills of bis native State to rusticate for a few days, he usually favored Conway with his presence, where resided the famous Billy Abbot, both small of stature and old of his age. For his humorous wit and wonderful knowledge of every little incident that made this or that place particularly charming and Interesting to the historian and the antiquarian which he was very fond of imparting, heso ingraft ed himself into the good favor of the great expounder of the constitution, that he always gave him a seat in liis carriage when he rode out to view th 9 beauties of nature. Billy's associates, feeling envious on account of the honor conferred upon birn by this distin guished man, one day after Webster's de parture sarcastically asked Billy, in the crowded bar-room,' what he and his friend Webster found to converse about as tbey rode about the country ? Billy replied : "Weusur ally talk about horticulture and agriculture, and th& different breeds of cattle and horses, and upon these subjects I derive from him a great deal of information ; and upon such topics I find him a little more than my match —but the moment"—enthusiastically with a gesture, and a tone of voice becoming the or ator himself—"hut the moment he alludes to the constitution, I can floor bim in a min ute;" which was received with applause, and the Banquo of Envy never again af fronted Daniel's rustic favorite. !©■ " Now, then, hearties," said a gallant paptain, " you have a tough battle before Fight like heroes till your powder's pone, then—run !" I'm a little lame and Y\l start now!" LINCOLN AMONG CHILDREN. Probably no attribute of our candidate will, after all, eridear him so.much to the popular heart, as the conviction that he is emphatically "one of the people." Ilis manhood has not been compressed into the artificial track Jof society ; but his great heart and vigorous intellect have been allow ed a generc us development amid his solitary struggles in the forrest and prairie. With vision unobscured by the mists of aopistry, be distinguishes at once between wiat is true and what is false, and with will and courage fortified by his life of hardships, tho is not a man to shirk any responsibility, or to shrink from any opposition. Morever, be is peculiarly one to win our confidence aDd affection. To know " Iloneat Abe," is to leve him ; and his neighbors in the west, although voting for him to a man,will mourn tho victory which deprives them of his pres ence. The following instance will exhibit Lin coln in one of those unobtrusive acts of good ness which adorn his life. The circumstance was related by a teacher in the Five Points House of Industsy, in New York. "Our Sunday School in the Fve points was assem bled, one Sabbath mcrning, a few months since ; I noticed a tall and remarkable look ing man enter the room and take a seat among U3. He listened with fixed attention to our exercises, and his countenance man ifested such genuine interest,that I approach ed him and suggested that he might be wil ling to say something to tha children. He accepted the invitation with evident pleas ure, and coming forward ho began a simple address, which at once fascinated every lit tle bearer, and hushed the room into silence. His language was strikingly beautiful, and his tones musical with intensest feeling— The little faces around would drop into sad conviction as he uttered sentences of warn ing, and would brighten into sunshine as he spoke cheerful words of promise. One? or twice ho attempted to close his remarks, hut the itpperitive shout of "Go on ! O do go on would compel him to resume. As I looked upon the guant and sinewy form of the stangcr, and marked his powerful head ind determined features, now touched into aofißess by the ioipiession of the moment, I felt an irresistable curiosity to know more about him, and be was q iietly leaving the toom, I begged to know his name. He re plied, courteously, ' It is Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois !" A Family Opposed to Newspapers, The man who didn't take the papers was in town yesterday, lie brought his whole family in a two horse wagon. He still be lieved that General Taylor was president, and wanted to know if tbo '* Kamkotkians" had taken Cuba, and if so, where they had taken it. 11a bad sold his corn for thirty cents—the price being fifty-five—hut on go ing to deposit the money, they told him that it was mostly counterfeit. Tho only hard money he had was some three-cent pieces, and these some sharper had " run on him" for half di ones. One of the boys went to the blacksmith's shop to be meaeured for a pair of shoes, and another mistook the market-house for a church. After hanging his hat on a meat hook, he piously took a seat on tho butcher's stall, and listened to an auctioneer, whom he took to bo the preacher. He left hefore the "rueetin' waz out," and had no great opinion of the " sarmint." One of the girls took a lot of "seed onions" to the Post Office to trade them for a letter. She had a baby, which she carried in a "sugar trough," stopping at times to rock it on the sidewalk. When it criei 6he stuffed its mouth with an old stocking, and sung " Barbara Allen." The oldest boy had sold two "COOD skins," and was on a " bust." When last seeß he had called for a glass of soda and water, and stood soaking his gingerbread and making wry faces. I'he shop-keeper mistaking his meaning, had given him a mixture of sal so da and water, and it tasted strongly of soap. But " he'd hearu tell of soda an' water, an' he was boun' to give it a fair trial." Some "town feller" came in and called for a lem onade with a " fly in it," whereupon our soaped frieDd taroed his back and quietly wiped several flies into his drink. We approached the sld gentleman and tried to get him to "subscribe," but he we'd not listen to it. He was opposed to " inter nal improvements,'" nnd he thought "larnin' was a wicked invention and vexation." None of his family ever learned to read, but one boy, and he "teached school for a while and then went to studying diwinity 1" QARIBALDI Garibaldi washes his own shirts when oc casion requires. After the battle of Melaz zo, finding his shirt dirty and soiled from his personal struggles, he took it off, washed it in the brook hard by, and hung it on ihe bashes, and ate his lunch of bread, fruit and water, smoked his cigar, barebacked, and, wraped in thought, sat apparently contem* plating the drying of his garment; thus in the field of bivouac, sharing danger and hardship with the humblest of his followers. Directly his shirt was dry ; he went on board the Tukeri, formerly Veloee, lying in the bay on the Western side ot the Penin sula, and personally directed her fire on the fortress and retiring masses. A WEDDING, The bride turned a, little pale, and then a little flushed, and at last had just the right quantity of bright, becoming color, and al most shed a tear, but not quite, for a smile came instead and chased it away. The bridegroom was warned not to forget the ring, and all were assembled aiound the tar. "I will," was uttered in a clear, low voice, and the new name was written—and Sophy Grey, was Sophy Grey no more : and she turned her bright face to bo looked on, and loved, and admired, by the crowd of rc -1 ations and friends surrounding her ; and they thought that Sophy Sfoketon was still dearer and prettier than ever Sophy Grey had been—and then the carriages were en tered, and the house was reached. Sophy walked into her father's house—her child hood's home—her home no longer—and the bridal dress was changed, and the traveling took its pJace, and all crowded around her to say good-by—to look on that dear face onoe more—to feel that her fate was sealed—to pray that it might be a happy one—to think that she was going away—away from her home—away with a stranger ! and tears and smiles were mingled, and fond looks, and long embraces, and a lather's mingled tear and sorrow was on her cheek ; and the sis ter's tear, that, vainly tried to be a smile, and the mother's sobs : and Sophy Grey left her father's house—left with the bright beam of joy and hope upon her brow j and anoth er moment, the carriage door was closed, the last good-by uttered —and Sphy was gone. Oh ! how melancholy ! how lonely does the house appear, where but a moment before all had besn interest and hurry. Who has not experienced the deserted sen sation, when those we are accustomed to see are gone—when tho agitation, the interest at parting is over ; the forlorn, empty look of the room—the workbox, the drawing mate rials, the music, all gone; or pethaps one siugle thing left to remind how all was—a flower, perhaps, that had been gathered and cast aside—the cover of a letter which had been scribbled over in tho forget!ulness of the happy conversation. LIFE IN A RAILROAD CAR. Long befi re the train arrives we hear the roar of wheels—we see the glimmering of a glowing light. Brighter and broader it opens ; like the Cyclopean unwinking eye, it is the head-light of the train. Then the steady jar, then the mingled clank as of a thousand shaken chains, and tho cars are here. "All aboard 1" and "all right 1" fol low each other in quick succession, and we are breathing the close and heavy air of a crowded dormitory. The car lamps had gone out disgusted ; the little wakefulness of the sleepers has subsided, 3nd the dim sno ring outline of cloaks and shawls and fright ened-looking beads—flecked hers and there like a troubled sea, with white, compose the landscape j while over all, like pendulums, swing plethoric carpet-bags slowly to and fro; and little satchels, brisk as mantel clocks, and bonnets made of nothing, dance up and down like blossoms in a rain, all timed to the motion of a train. But the dim gray turns to an old eyed white, and breath" ing bundles begin to stir. Out of an egg shaped packet is hatched a woman, with | locks dischevelled, like Venus from the sea. A throe or two and a rougher form emerges from cloak and shawl and shakes itself awake. A shapeless heap turns out a man, bearded like a pard. A oair of boots thrust out-like bowsprits, dip out of sight as the owner comes in yiew. One soothing an irri tated hat with gentje touches of his elbow ; another pulliDg at his wilted collar. Disor dered tresses are smoothed with hasty touch es of the hand, and crumpled sleeves persua ded into shape. One lady has learned her lesson from Grimalkin, and makes her toilet precisely like a cat. DANCEIJ WITH THE PRINCE. What an event among crinolinedom—to have danced with the Prince of Wales 1 We are afraid he will have much to answer for. Young men who were formerly considered paragons of perfection by young ladies, will doubtless he snubbed incontinently. A hand that has beep grasped by a live Prince will not be bestowed on every chance comer, depend upon it. Have a care, girls 1 Don't carry your heads too high, or at least not so high that yon may not have the pleasure of telling to your children 'all about the PriDce.' In short, don't be so puffed up that one of these days somebody will point out a wither ed old maid, and somebody else will exclaim, increduously, in your hearing—"What 1 the Prince dance with hert "Well, truly, there is no accounting for taste !" the conso latory "Oh, but she was very pretty once," will take the sting from the rejoinder—"ls it possible ?" Fanny Fern. A Connecticut pastor gave three rea sons for rr fusing an increase of salary. First that the parish could not afford to pay more ; second, that his preaching was not worth more ; and third, because I have to collect my salary which heretofore, has been the hardest part of my labors among you. If I have to cpllect an additional hundred, it will kill me. Why is a lawyer like a restless man in bed ? Ansßecause he lies first on one side, and then turns ever and lies on the other. The Exodus of tho Fosteritcs. Now it come to pass in the year eighteen hundred and sixty, which was the fourth year of James the Fourth, that there arose in the Keystone State a man named Fostser, who in his conceit aspired to be rules cf that State. Now Foster was a babbler and foolish of spoech, apd his words were like sounding brass and tinkling cymbals. Nevertheless, as he was a Douglasite, and a prophet in his own country, (albeit lie was a prophet) he drew many p,eo,ple after him. And Foster went about from placa to, place exorting tha people to the end that ho might become a ruler over them. Now there was a man of Centre, whose name was Curtin—a Lincolnito, and a man of mighty power; and tbe Lincolnites said, among themselves: This man shall rule over us, and we will have him for our Gov ernor. And Curtin also exorted the people. And it came to pass that the Douglasites and the Lincolnites met together to hear their chosen, leaders speak to the people, and exort them to remain firm in the faith. And Foster spoke for the space of an hour and forty minutes. And whem he bad made an end of speak ing Curtin arose and spoke with great pow er, and moreover read and expounced the epistle of , the Collector. And when Foster heard it he was sore afraid and was troubled within him. And it came to pass that Curtin obtained fayor in the eyes of the people but Foster went awav discomfited, And there were giants iD those days—(al beit there were little giants.) And they waxed fat and presumptuous and did boast that Foster should prevail over Curtin. And the Fosteritea and Douglasites did bring offerings of gold and silver and musi cal instruments from afar off, yea, even a mock sun, to give light by night, that they might tempt to follow after Foster, And many false prophets went about the country, exhorting to tho same end. And it came to pass in the tenth month and the ninth day of the month, that the Douglasites aDd the Fosteritea gathered themselves together for battle. And about the eighth hour the Lincolnites fell upon them and smote them, hip and thigh, the Douglasites, tho Fosteritea, the Bellires and the Clear Greeks; And they fled before the face of Curtin and his hosts, and took ship up the river, yea, even that river of Salt. And it came to pass, that when Fester saw and heard those things he lifted up his voice and wept. And as they journeyed on the river, they chanted in the heaviness of their hearts: Ob Foster's heart is broke, Oh Foster don't you cry, &c. [Philadelphia. News, TO ATTAIN LONG LIFE. He who strives after a long and pleasant term of life, must seek to attain continual equanimity, and carefully to avoid everything which too violently taxes his feelings.— Nothing more quickly consumes the vigo? of life tliau the violence of the emotions of the mind. We know that anxiety and cares can destroy the healthiest body ; we know that fright and fear, yes, excess of joy becomes deadly. Tbey who are naturally cool, and of a quiet turn of mine, upon whom nothing can make too powerfull an impression— who are not want to be excited ether by great sorrow or great joy, have the best chance of living long and happy after their manner.— Preserve, therefore, under all circumstancesi a composure of mind which no happiness, no uiiskortqne can too much disturb. Love nothing to violently—hate nothing to pass ionately—fear pothing to strongly. For still, eventually, everything which befalls thee, the good as well the bad, deserves neither immoderate hatred nor love ; for already on many occasions bast tbou perceived, thopgh cften truly too late, thai thou hast placed too high a value on those things which passion ately charmed or pained thee. DEWDKOPS. Liberality is the best way to gain affection for we are assured of their friendship to whom we are obliged. The greater the man is, the more he hath need of a friend ; and the more difficulty there is in finding and knowing him. Wqrthy minds deny themselyes many ad? vantages to satisfy a generous beneficence, which they bear friends in distress. Inquisitive people are the funnels of con versation ; they do not take in anything for their own use, but merely to pass it to an other. Choose tby wife wisely; open not thy bo" som to the triflerf repose not thy head on the breast which nurseth envy, and folly, end vanity. More hearts pine away in secret qnguish for unkindness from those who should be their comforters, than for any other calam ity in life. He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealh of the In* dies with him. So it is in travelling; a man must carry knowledge with bim, if he would bring home knowledge. If a man could be concious of all that is said of him in bis absence, he would proba bly become a very modest man indoed. EDITORS & PROPRIET QRS. NUMBER 42 A CUTE IRISHMAN, Not long since, in one of our interior towns, a green specimen of Emerald Isle made his appearance, with a larg6 family—ten chil dren and a wife—very poor withal. Pat, af ter cogitating for some time, hit up,on a nov el plan of 'raising the wiud,' which we will endeavor to develop for the benefit of gpy odo. who may be placpd in similar circumstan ces. He proceeded to V h e bouse of the wealthiest man in town, (who, by the way, was a tight fisted old codger, and had often passed by the miserable hut whets our hero and hist family stayed, and knew they were suffering from cold and hunger, yet never offered to re lieve Pat, or his children who wore crying, for bread,} one cold morning in December, and, ringing at the door, inquired for Mr, R , who soon made his appearance. Pat, with a knowing look, requested of birp the loan of a sum of money sufficient to get a letter from the Post Office, sent to him from the "ould counthry," and, as he said, con taining something valuable. Old Skinflint, for the first time in his life, was generous, and gave away a sixpence; our Irish friend took the money and "W9nt on his way rejoicing.'* The next morning, early, Pat returned, and was received with a cold nod, and "Ilovy d'ye do, Pat?" He drew an ominous look ing document from his pocket, which be said he had received from ould Ireland in the let ter, and requested Old Skinflint to examine, it. Upon inspection, it proved to be a paper purporting to he ''the last will and testa ment" of a wealthy unode of Pat's bequeath ing to his nephew, Mr. Patrick M -, tha sum of £250,000. Mr. R all at once discovered that our Irish friend was a remarkably ing man, and, throwing off his usual severity of manner, extended his hand, and congratu-. lated him on his good fortune, same time remarking: "I understand, Mr. M -, that yoqqrq not in very good circumstances, at present. I have been thinking fur some time past that I would call down to your house and SW hovf your family were, and render assistance if necessary. It is a pity that so good-looking a man as you should live in that old shell of a house you now occupy. I have a fine house vacant just now, which you 6hall move into, to-day." Accordingly, Pat's family was removed with their goods and chattels, and eomforta bly quartered in cue of R -'s nice bom ses. R— rrr— furnished him with the mon ey to carry on the necessary business in pro-, curing the legacy set forth in the will, and - the means to Bupport his family through the most part of a long, cold winter. One day Pat wanted two hundred dollars, which, ha said, would be the last he should require, as he would receive his money by the next steamer. The next morning, when R arose and went to take hia accustomsj walk, ha had the satisfaction of perceiving that Pat had left with all his family and furniture, (purchased for him by R ) and the two hundred dollars. On entering the house he observed the will, yery nicely folded, ly ing upon the hearth, and, picking up and opening it, found a note in which Pat thank ed him very kindly for his assistance, and promised to call and see him if be ever oamo that way. THEWALL OF CHINA. This stupendous monument of human art and industry exceeds everything that wa read of in ancient or modern history. Tha pyramids of Egypt are littie when compared wpb a wall which is oonduotea over high mountains, some of which rise la tha heighf of five thousand two hundred and twenty five feet, across the deepest vales, over wide rivers by means of arehes, and in many partq is doubled or trebled, to command important • passes ; at the distance of almost every hun dred yards is a tower of massy bastion. Tha extent is computed at fifteen hundred miles, and is such enormous thickness that six horsemen may tide abreast upon it. Sir George Staunton, who acoompaDied 1 Lord Macartney in his embasy to China, con siders tfiia great barrier to have bean erect ed at least two thousand years. Du Ifaldt also says " this prodigious work was con structed two hundred and fifteen years be fore the birth of Christ, by the orders of the first emperor of the family of Tsin, to pro- 1 tect three large provinces from the irrup tions of the Tartars." One-third part cf tha able bodied men pf China were employed in constructing this wall,and the workmen wcra ordered, under pain of death, to plaoe th e materials of which it is composed so closely that the least eptrance might not be left for i any instrument of pointed iron. The labor in its construction must have been immense, as the materials must have been carried over a desert country to eminences inaccessible to horses pr Carriages. This " wonder of tha world" was completed in the short apaoo of five years, and it is reported that the labor ers stood so close for many miles that they cou'd hand the materials from one to anoth er. In tho matter of plain speaking we i are, like the scldier, who, in bis first battle was afraid to fire off his musket, lest might burr somebody.
