Fur adoption at any ono's option,
A bcantiful femalo child;
With golden hair and skin BO fair
As the snob•-drift niadfiled.
Its eyes are blue as the deepest Imo
Of the breezy summer heaven.
COme, take it away, for nothing, I pray,
A fall surrender given
" Who was its mother r is that what you say?
Well, really, I cannot tell ;
She wasihere just one month, and wont away
Iteforo•she had gone quite well.
She never said, or living or dead,
Of ita father one word to-me,
But the bitterest tzars that ever Were shed
Baptisedit on ra.rl7;.nee.
And slie tined again ind again to kiss
Ita lips ore she went away.
"At list, Oh Godl has it come to this?" .
Was all that she could say.
Then over her eyes she claim' her hands,
And forth from the door she fled;
And who shall say if now she stands
With the living or eleepS with the dsad!"
Then who will hare this image of God, -
With a soutthat cannot die?
Is cheaper than anything else He bath made,
Yet do one comes to buy:
A. poodle dog, a parapet,
And a chattering cockatoo,
Are all worth ever so much a head,
And 11C3rea in the market too.

The first work of a party in the
wilderness is the !erection of the • ne
cessary camp-cabins, and. making the
requisite preparations fur camping
oat. For the first night we occupied
by permission the quarters previous
ly erected by a party of gentlemen
from Syracuse, who fora nnmber of
vbars have made lan annual visit to
'Smith's Lake, and who were to re
'turn on the next 'evening.
While some of the guides were en
gaged in getting breakfast, the King
and Widey with a guide : went on an.
exploring expedition along the west
ern shore of the lake for the purpose
(4- selecting a suitable place for the
nr.s'r CAMP.
Others of our party went out upon
the. lake to fisli for trout. At-bresk
fast call, our King and Widey return
ed, and repOrted 'that they had cho
sen a lovely spot for our camp near
a copious spring 'of the purest cold
water, on the western shore of the
lake, and about one hundred rods
north of Cainp Syracuse. Our fish
ermen Came to breakfast with speck
led beauties enough to supply our ta-•
ble for the day.
.Breakfst.oyer, we vacated the Sy
racuse camp,. and repaired to the
spot selected for Our place of abode
during our stay.'' We found iton an
elevation about twenty rods from the
lake shore,: -approached by an easy
ascent, and overlooking almost the
entire lake. The work of- erecting
our camp-cabins,' cutting out paths,
trimming out undergrowth, and set
ting our quarters in perfect order,
occupied the time of our guides, un
der the SupervisiOn of the- King and
Widey as rcliitects, for nearly two

mou • and speckled trout, with plenty
of the best of bread and corn cakes,
made by our guides, butter, maple
syrtiP, Potakiea, tea and coffee, with
condensed milk, pickles, etc., etc.
Our dining table was constructed of
s: j l
a single piece of spruce bark, four
feet in , width an ten feet long, turn
ed the'inside up, giving it the ap
pearance of a. broad piece of sole
leather, nailed upon a frame work
and set upcin posts. driien into the
ground, 'around which seats were ar
ranged. 'We were well supplied with
tin plates, cups, knives and fcrks,
spoons, and all the appointments ne
ce-csutry for setting our table. Oar
cooking apparatus was ample, con
sisting of- a sheetiron stove, teapot;
coffee-pot, frying-pan, , broiler; etc.,

of both of yiese patties. The utmost

to contribttte their share to making
our stay mutually pleasant and en
joyable. It is said that 'a fish diet
tends to secrete ;.n increase of phos
phorus in the bf,thu, which - if true,
may account for the exuberant bub
bling up of fun, rind the general good
nature, and genuine humor exhibited
by our entire
.paoy. _
The hunting was usually done in
the night-tima, by. floating in boats,
as described last week. As but two
of our party beside . the guides, bad'
viz :
'gnus, Widey and Benjamin, the,
floating was mostly done by them.
Bog Lake, two miles north, and Har-.
rington's Pond, near by were visited
by Benjamin and a guide, without
success, except in the killing of a
loon, and the--ca4hing of some large
trout. Widey 'penetrated to Tup
per's Inlet, eight ~ mile cast, accom
panied by Alf and gUlde Knowlton ;
and remained absent all night: Widey
for the - purpose of
. floating for deer,
and Alf for that Of fishing. They're-
turned next day Without having cap
tured a deer, but reported that
Widay had shot at one; and had no
doubt mortally w o unded him, but he
run off into the thick bushes, and
'they could not follow him: They
had seen and had a fair chance to
have shot another, but for an unfor
tunate, and ludicamishap that be

He had arranged a strap running
from one of the oar-pins of their boat
to the other, and around his backfor

he pressed hard. upon thastrap, and

The next iloatinr , expedition was
by guides Lewis and Collins, at Har
rington's Pond : they met with sue..=-
eess, and returned iu the morning.
with aline two-years old deer. This
supplied us wilti meat for several
-days, and enrlad tn. to repay the
hospitality of our Syracuse friends,
by actling them a saddle in place of
one'they had previously sent us.
Ike, with
,Hamthond, next
tried his luck in .11qating . at Albany
Lake, but returned in the morning
and reported ii — , - Sh - ot at a deer, but
failed to sceure'hiru.
Others of our party devoted them
selves to fishing. King, Sam, Ike,
Alf and C.oful,, were quite successful
in this line. A set-line baited with
minnows was kept out for salmon
fishing. In this manner more . sal
mon could be caught than we could
make use of. Their weight ranges
from one to eight pounds. The siteck 7 ,

At the suggestion of the 'Syracuse
gentlemen, a regatta was arranged,
in which the guides from Ahe three
camps were to compete/fur prizes. -
They were to row oue mile, by start
ing from a point.oppo,ite Camp Sy
racuse, north a half, miile, and turn
ing round a boat buiVed out in the
lake, row back tO the starting'point.
The contestants Lwith their boats, en
tered for the firSt,.a two-oared ,race,
for three yrizeS, with their positioni,
as drawn i by lot, were as follows, viz:

In/this race the prize was won by
Chaiies Smith,. boat Champion; The
second, by D. iinowlithi, boat Ra
quette, 4nd the' third as to distance
and time of reaching the starting
line, *as fairly won .by James Lewis,
boat Turin ; but as he had misunder
stbod the rule requiring' him to re
-him te'the line on the opposite side
of ,the steak-boat frimi where : they
- started," it was a question 'whether
the judges should not award the third
-prize to the next boat in : : V. Ed
wards, of the Green "Wing. It was
finally arranged by swarding an equal
prize to each. Candor compels us to
say that considering the disadvan
dzige of rowing clumsy and inferior
boats, 'so far as their capacity for
speed is concerned. Knowlton, Lew
is, and Edwards, made much -better
time tkanlir. Smith, of the Chiimpi
on. In fact, either, liith a boat , of
the capacity of the Chiimpion, would
have far out-distanced him. As it
Was, Ur. Lewis unquestionably 'row
ed a greater distance in the same
LILO than either.
The second was a .four-oared race
with a cockswain, 'for a single, prize.
The 'contestants, boats entered ; and

pleasantly, and was the first regrea

break up without another incident in
its history worthy of note, devoted
themselves to the composition sf im
promptu poetry of the machine kind,

verse was composed and sung sepa
rately, applicable to each member,
and the poetry was of no mean Or

hits. Each verse, as the two walked
out in front of our sleeping' apart
ment, Was" lined in solemn tone, and
sung to the tune of " the three bleak
crows," when they would-return to
the -dining room; comprise another
verse, line-it and sing as before: This
performance over, they too turned in
to rest, and all slept quietly till morn-
Oar guides rose early- and got our
breakfast in readiness, but it was yet
raining copiously ; after partaking of
breakfast, our luggage was all packed
ready for, our departure. The storm
broke away abort nine o'clock, A. U.,
when 'we bid "good bye " to, Camp
Towanda,' , took to our boats ,in
the same order as Ave came, and
headed towards the outlet of the lake
'for home. As we came opposite Camp
Syracuse where the American flag
was floating high, we drew up in line
and 'gave the party three rousing
(leers, which were as heafrily re
sponded to by them. They then fired
a salute of musketry, which was re
turned by us from our boats, anti we
said" good bye," and rowed on 'our
way, amid cheering and waving. 6f
handkerchiefs until we rounded.: the
point out of sight.
We made ranch better time going
down the stream, than when we came
up. All the party reached the "Wild
wood Home ' that evening, except
Benjamin, with guide Lewis,- and
Crofut, with guide :Higby. These
remained at Burnt Lake Camp the
latter until morning and the former"
until late-in the evening, when they
left, prepared to float for deer on the
.may down. They were encouraged
to do this from the fact that we hadl
seen . - . Sive deer -_along the shore of
Albany Lake, on the way' down!
,Widey made two shots at them, but
at an-unfavorable distance; and lOU
_ably neither shot reached its Mark.

A few weeks since, the writer o
ed in the columns of this paper a fe
thonghts on keeping the peace: I ,
was stated That all citizens should as
sist their officers in.,upholding the
laws and in punishing criminals.
That may we not do. more than this,
by-seeking,out and arresting the very
beginnings of crime? It is a terrible,
fast that hardened criminals are. sel-
doui reformed. They pay the pence
ty of one vice only to commit another
more- flagrant than the first. The
passions of men long nourished are
like swollen streams. 4, They cannot
be stayed. They rush forth with
wild fury, carrying destruction in
their course. It is better to check
the vicious tendencies of men ,before
they pass beyond control. The rivu
let by the hillside can be easily turn
ed, while the great river rolls on' its
way and none can hinder'. The gart
dener finds no trouble in bending
, the young twig, but the tree that has
onee_grown crooked, remains crook
ed forever. So, there is little/need
of crime' if men are guided rjght at
first, and no laws can hinder crime
when society has oncegrowa corrupt.,
. Men sini in thought yefore they
commit the outward vi ie ze. The im
pure in'heart are only siting for a
fit occasion to bee; me villainous in
conduct. The littl thief of to-day
may be guilty to-ftiorrow of -highway
robbery. The planwho now hates
his neighborts7y at last murder hini.

avelaught lessons of obedience and
lood order in the family seldom turn
out bad citizens. The child who firs'
learns to respect parental law,
finds it-easy after Ward to respect the
laws of his .country . andp•the
. higher
law of. God. ;-
When our neighbor who has been
generally Well behaved, plays his first
mean trick upon us, need on
our part_ of Christian. patience. A
little filminess tempered with forbear
ance; is necessary. . Speak to him in
a frank, epen-heai:tea way; and he
may soon be led to see his fault and
be saved from a vicious life. It is a
great- mistake to Make public some
trifling of lice which our neighbor
has committed, and pass him by
without. one Word of friendly reproof.
It is better far to tell him his fault .
between you and him alone: It is
folly to prosecute our neighbor for
some personal • insult -- in which the
community at large is in no way, in
terested. • Let us 'rather pracliee.; the
Christian rule of forgiveness.. A spir
it-of love shown -forth in patiently
bearing injuries, has saved._ niftily; a
man just started in a course of crime.
In order to. prevent crime and in

three things :
1.. Be pure-Minded themselves.

FAT 11E\.— . It is a striking fact '
that most persons want to weigh
more-than they do,and measure their
health by their weight, as if a man
were a pig, valuable in proportion to•
his heaviness. " The racer is not fat;
a good plough horse has but a mod
crate amount of flesh. 'Heavy men-.
are not those which experienced con- i
tractors employ to build - railroads"
and dig ditches. Thin - men, the
world over, are the men for enditr
ance; are_ the wiry and hardy;'thin
people live the longest.% . The-' truth
i is, fat is A -.disease; and, as a' -proof,
fat people are never well a day at a
time; are not suited for hard work..
Still, there is a medium lietween . fat
as a butter-ball and thin and juice
less as a fence rail. For mere looks,
moderate rotundity is 'Most desira

the-shortest time, a man should'work
but little, sleep a great gait °flu,
the • time; ' allowing nothing to
worry him,. keep . himselfy a joyous
laughing mood, and live chiefly on
albuminates, such as boil d cracked
wheat,' and' e, and oats, and corn,
and barley, with sweet milk and fat
meats. Sugar is the; best .
