No, here, on friendship's aUr bright;

And time's fast falling sands run low
When death points stonily to the tomb
And wordly scenes no longer glow
Then, even here, shall memory bring

Unruffled by the storm of wo

House-Wifes and Editors.
. Between a house-wife anil an editor there
may well be a sympathy of" heart. To both
1 m. .
uay alter day there 13 a round of duties.
Iho house-wire, in providinir for hor rami
ly, must have their wants ever before her.
And so Willi the editor of a newsnaner.
He has still a more numerous family, and
wiUi more diversified wants to be provided
lor. bhe must see that her meals be furn
ished in due season, and in nrenarinsr them
the health and tastes of her family, and wf
tne uillert members of it are to be regarded.
Just so the editor. He must have in ren
-diness at the regular times the meals for his
lamnyj consulting with anxious care both
their tastes and their healths; presenting
something which may be suited to each.
And if either fails in time, ouantitv or oual-
ity there is danger or wry looks, mi of
goodly number of dry interrogations.
The house-wife clears away the table but
to prepare it again for (he new and ever re
turning wants of hunger. She must see
"that she not only has something of a varie
ty for one meal, but a now and different va
riety for the next, Tor appetites sntiate with
the same, however good; and demand a con
tinued change, The editor too finishes cor
recting his last proof slip, (which is but
washing up his dishes,) and begins to com
fort himself with the thoughts that this is
off his hands, when he hears the well known
voice of the printer "Want copy again
'early in the morning,1' and the poor editor
wends his way home racking his brains for
-something new to cook up for the next din
ner. And then the prudent house-wife must
regard economy, and the cold remains of
ono meal must be hashed and dressed up
in some new form for the next. Here again
there is a resemblance; the editor often finds
himself under the necessary of seeking out
his slendor dinner by serving up, in some
new dress, the leavings of tho former tneals.
In this ho is sometimes equally unfortunate
with his sister house-wife, for his family
find it difficult to determine whether his dish
is made up most of meat, offish or of fowl.
And to both it happens that their dishes
come on sometimes piping hot; some
times too much pepper, then too much salt;
and again an over quantity of vinegar; and
not unfrcquently their families think the
seasoning has been all forgotten, and tho
fire has failed to perform its duly. Then it
is well for both ifihey escape having the
whole dashed in their faces by some disap
pointed gourmand. Cin. Journal.

''I reckon this 'cro country of yourn is

"Rattle-snakes and copper-heads."
"Oh! get out! du tell, I want to know if
they're so almighty thick?"
"Rather. Dad and I went out this morn

a quarter but then it was a bad snake
morning, and you must make some allow
"Ohl I'll malic any 'lowances and tracks
out of the settlement at the same time. But
say, jest 'tween ourselves, if it had raly

"Five is about an average."
"Five! You don't say so?'
"Yes I do, though."
"Which is my shortest way out of this

"Keep right straight ahead."'
"Well, I wish you a good day. Give
my best 'spects to your dad, and tell him I
hope he'll have better snake-weather next

T make it a point of morality never to find
fault with another for manners. They may
be awkward or graceful, blunt or polite,
polished or rustic; I care not what they arc,
if tho man means well and acts from honest
intentions without eccentricity or affecta
tion. All men have not the nilvnntnrros r

in all its fantastic rules and ceremonies; and

For pvbUhtre at FollitlUt, Va, mi Imperial Wttkly A'eie$paper, to be mUthA
The urgent solicitations of numerous friends, and the prospect of liberal patronage,
have induced the undersigned to issue these proposals, and ask the support of the pub
lic. In politics, tho "Pottsville EMroniuM" will zealously support the principles and
candidates of the Democratic party, and particularly tho nominee of the 15th of March
Convention : But, aside from paity feeling, it shall be our main object to enhance the
interests of our fellow-citizens, by promoting that industry and enterprizo which charnc
tiso the operations of tho Coal Region. Wc shall go for the honest many against tho
designing few on all occasions, reverencing that principle in our political creel, and op
posing any Monopoly which may retard the exercise ot individual rights, or have the
tendency to put down individual industry and enterprise. In fine, our object shall be
o promote the welfare oflhecommunity amongst whom wo live to please and in
structand with no other promises, we shall commence dur paper, honing that our ex
perience both as mechanical printers and editors, may fit us for our tajk, and afford that
gratification to patrons which novel fails to induce tho necessary recompense for servi
ces rendered in a laudable undertaking.
At present there is but one English paper published in the county of Schuvlkill a
county whoso territory is completely spotted with villages, and whose citizens rank
amongst the most intelligent, industrious and enterprising of the commonwealth. In
1805, Schuylkill polled almost 2500 votes, and the combined Democratic vote exceeded
1C00. Then wc doubt not of tho success of our establishment, provided the exertion of
friends may, in the launching of our bark, prevent it from mooring upon those rocks and
shoals which generally render the commencement of a papijr a matter of so much anx
iety and expense to the proprietors.
Tho "Pottsvillk Emphrium" will be published weekly, on an Imperial sheet, at
T WO DOLLARS per annum, payable semi-annually in advance, or $2 Si if not paid
within the year.
The first number will be published about the 'fast of May next. Subscriptions are
