TIIE EDITOR'S SOJNG. ,
The Editor sita at his table,
.Writing as well as he's able,
Paragraph, leader, and puff ;
His scissors beside him I ying, ........
While he in his agony trying,
Of copy to furnish enough.
Toil, toil, toil !
What a weary life is mine !
Wasting the precious midnight oil
In leader., and column, and line ; j
Working from morn till night,
Working from night till morn.
Oh ! why was the news-paper made,
Or why was the editor born?
Toil, toil, toil!
And whose is the gain when done ?
Whose are the trophies we achieve,
. And for whom are the laurels won?
To stand in the foremost rank
Of every party fray:
To share the toil, and only to get
Abuse and neglect for pay !
Toil, toil, toil !
What a thankless task is ours !
To bake the bread and press the cheese
That Senator Jones devours !
To ait on a three legged stool,
While others have hair-stuffed seats ;
To prepare the hash and cook up the stew,
But never to taste meats !
Toil, toil, toil!
As tho constant drop on a stone,
So this ceaseless, endless work
Wears away body and bone !
Though the poet splutter and write,
Though the orator bully and brawl,
If it were not for the editor's pen
AVhat were the use of it all ?
Toil, toil, toil !
Christians, Mormons, and Jews ;
Is there a man on this weary earth,
But grows richer by reading the news ?
Kicher, richer, richer.
As they read it by sunlight and taper
And yet, there isn't a soul of them all,
But grudges to pay for his paper!
Toil, toil, toil!
There's a row in the very next street!
Somebody's going to murder his wife,
And I must be off tout suite
Yesterday, just at this time,
Two policemen got choked in a riot;
And so it goes -on from morning till night,
And an editor never knows quiet.
Gets up, knocks his hat over his eyes, imd rushes
out in a state of distraction, "to pick up an item."

THE PATH TO HEAVEN.
We select the following beautiful and in
structive allegory from a pleasant Sab!ath
'school book, entitled The Old Man's Home.'
Little Annie was mourning for the death of a
pious old pauper, who had been under bcr fa
ther's charge, and from whom she had learned
of the Heavenly home. To the question whe
ther she did not expect to meet him again in
that home, or whether her home was different
from his :
'Oh, no,' she answered, with unexpected
earnestuess, 'we are children of the same Fa
ther, and all travel to the same Home that
is,' she added, looking dowu, and coloring
deeply, 'if wc are careful to keep in the path
that leads to it.' ' .
'And what path is that, Annie?'
The path of trustful obedience, and quiet
faith, and holy love,' was her immediate re
ply. I knew at once that the words were not her
own, but that she spoke lrom memory, and
that I had accidentally led her to one of the
old man's allegories. I was anxious for my
own sake to hear more of it, and it seemed to
me that it might be good for her own sorrow,
to turn her thoughts for a little wnile into this
channel; so I continued :
'And is it a pleasant path, Annie, that leads
It is an up-hill path,' she saldj 'but as we
walk along it, we can, if we will, awake soft
notes of music beneath our feet, and there are
whispering winds to cheer us on our way.'
And what, Annie,' I asked, 'do you mean
by the soft music and the whispering wind?'
'The soft music is prayer,' she replied, 'and
the whispering wind, the Holy Spirit of God.'
'And can we,' I said, 'have the soft music
without the whispering wind? I mean, can
we pray without the assistance of God's Holy
But there was no need for me to have ex
plained the question; the language of allegory
was most familiar to the mind of the child,
and she had recourse to it in her reply.
'No, sir,' she said, 'for the spirit of harmony
dwells in thereeze; and it is the wind alone
that gives life to the music, and bears it up
ward from earth to Heaven.' -
I cannot tell how far she realized the deep
meanig of these words, for I did not venture
to examine her tfpon them. I was afraid lest
I should only render indistinct the image
which they conveyed to her mind, by touch
ing the colors with an unskilful hand.
Presantly I resumed: 'It must, Annie, I
think, be a pleasant path along which the wind
thus murmers, and the music plays!'
It is a pleasant path,' she replied, 'and yet
it is very thickly covered with thorns. 'But,'
she added, and from the smile which for a
moment lit up h?r countenance, it seemed as
though this were the metaphor which pleased
her best, 'they are all magic thorns; and if we
look upward to the clear blue sky, and tread
firmly upon them, they keep changing into
flowers.',." .' .. : ' "; ;."
'And is there not another path,' I said, ven
turing to guess at the conclusion of the alle
gory, 'which leads away from homeland along
which the, flowers, as you tread upon them,
keep changing into thorns?' -. --' t. i r
But I was wrong in my conjecture, for ' she" i
looked perplexed, and replied, 'I do not know,
sir, about the other paths; the old man never
used to talk to me but of onel' And I felt
ashamed of my question, as I said within my
self, 'oh happy child, to know as yet but of
one path; and happy teacher, to have so shar
ed the innocency of childhood as to have spo
ken to her but of one ?' -
Presently, however, she continued, as though
she observed my confusion. 'But sir, he
said there were flowers which grow by the
wayside. "When the wind blows softly upon
them they perfume the air: and their fragrance
is very sweet and pleasant to those who pass
them by; but if we stop to gather them, then
they become magic flowers, aud keep chang
ing into thorns. And do you know, sir, why
it is so?'
'Not exactly,' I replied; 'I should like you
to explain it to me.'
'Because, sir,' she said, 'when we gather
them, we stoop down, and turn out eyes to
wards the earth, instead of gazing upward up
on the clear, blue sky.'
'But, Annie,' I observed, 'you have not yet
told me what are the flowers which we gather,
or the thorns on which we tread.'
'The thorns,' she replied, 'are the trials and
afflictions which God sends us; the flowers, are
the pleasures and amusements which we make
choice of for ourselves.'
Then, Annie,' I said, 'the children who
gather the magic flowers are those who follow
their own will, while those who tread upon
the magic thorns arc such as submit them
selves quietly to the will of God.' .
Her countenance became grave, and I saw
that she already guessed my meaning. I
thought her mind was now sufficiently pre
pared to allow me to apply directly to her own
case the old man's allegory: aud it seemed as
though his spirit were resting upon me while
I did so, and I used almost unconcicusly the
language of metaphor.
'Annie,' I continued, 'a very sharp and
piercing thorn was but yesterday placed in
your path. Your foot is young and tender,
and I do not wonder that you should shrink
from treading upon it.' She trembled vio
lently at this direct allusion to her grief, and
yet looked anxiously in my face, as though
she wished me to say more. My own voice
began to falter, and I could only add, 'But,
believe me, your kind friend did not deceive
yon; the thorn of affliction lies on the path
homewards; and if you have but courage to
walk quietly on, there is none that with grea
ter certainty will change into a flower. Go,
Annie, and awaken the soft music, and jou
will be cheered by the whispering wind.' .
Music in the Family. Its beneficial effects
may not be doubted. No family should fail to
encourage the largest possible amount of mu
sical talent. Independent of its happy influ
ence on the mind it should be iostered on ac
count of its physical advantages. The late Dr.
Rush said, "the Germans rarely die with con
sumption, because they arc always singing.'
If this beautiful accomplishment tends in any
degree to mitigate a malady so terrible, for the
world's sake let us have a world of it. But
there are other reasons, it induces amiability
and banishes bad passions. Yc have some
where read the statement of an excellent cler
gyman, possessing much knowledge of human
nature, who instructed a large family of daugh
ters in the ordinary practice of music. These
were observed to be amiable and happy. A
friend 'inquried if there was any-secret in his
mode of education; to which he replied: "When
any thing disturbs their temper, I say to them,
sing; and if I hear them speak against any per
son, I call on them to sing for me, and they
sing away all discontent, and every disposition
to scandal." Such a use of this accomplish
ment might seem to fit a family for angels ;
young voices around the domestic altar,
breathing sacred music at the hour of morn
ing and evening devotion, arc a sweet and
touching accompany mcnt.
Give me Drink. Mr. M'Leod, an English
writer, puts the following language in the
mouths of those who visit the rumseller's den:
There's my money give me drink ! There's
my clothing and my food give mc drink !
There's the clothing, food and fire for my
wife and children give me drink ! There's
the education of the family and the peace of
the house give me drink ! There's the rent
I have robbed from my landlord, fees I have
robbed from the schoolmaster, and innumera
ble articles I have robbed from the shopkeep
er give me drink ! Pour me out drink for
more I will yet pay for it ! There's my health
of body, and peace of mind there's my char
acter as a man, and my profession as a Chris
tian I give up all give me drink ! More
yet I have to give ! There's my heavenly in-
heritence and the eternal friendship of the re
deemed there there is all my hope of salva
tion ! I give my God ! I resign all : All that
is great, good and glorious in the universe I
resign forever, that I may be Drunk-
He who will turn away from a friend for one
fault, is a stranger to the best feelings of the
human heart. , Who has not erred, at least
once in his life? If that fault were not over
looked, to what depths of infamy would not
thousands have decended? We know not the
peculiar and pressing temtation to which
another may be exposed, ne may have fought
manfully for months against the sin, and still
kept the secret locked in his bosom. He
would give worlds to recall the act. He has
mourned over it in secret, and repented in
dust and ashes. Shall we forsake him?
Earth and heaven justice, humanity, philan
throphy, and religion cry out, "Forgive him!''
ne who will not forgive must possess the heart
of a demon. Surely, the love of God is not

GRAHAM'S MAGAZINE. NEW VOL
UME. 1854.1 In announcing hi readineM to
receive orders for tho New Volume, tfee editor does,
not know he has any very brilliant ideas to bold
out in large capitals to dazzle pcoplc'e eyes
'Graham'.' will be pretty much what it has been
the last volume, with some improvements which
experience suggests. No number will contain lcs
than 100 rages of matter, and the readers of "Gra-
ham" may rely with great confidence upon this
the volume shall contain
OYER TWELVE HUNDRED PAGES !
Of the very best reading matter that capital can
command from oaiginal sources. or taste select from
the vast mass of available material.
The aim of the editor will be to produce a pub
lication which sholl be valuable in matter, and
choice in taste and style; and he flatters himself,
from the known talents of his contributors, that lw
will be able to present ns many good original ar
ticles to his readers as any publication of the day.
Ho shall not, however, hesitate to publish, from
time to time, articles from English authors, and
translations from the best German and French
writers, provided the pieces have never before ap
peared in print in this country. Essays on impor
tant Political Subjects will likewise "be inserted,
and criticisms on the Literature of America and;
the movements of the Age. The Lcriew Depart
ment, in which a large aud liberal spirit of crit
icism will always be maintained, will bo extended.
For the defenceof American Diterature the editor
will always be ready ; the maintainauce of a cor
rect toue in the Magazine, he will, if possible, be
still more watchful.
EACH XCMBFR WILL CONTAIX AX ESOR AVISO FHOX A
FINE STEEL PLATE IX ADPITIOX TO THB CHOICE
I'ESIGXS AND KXGHAVINGS OF BEVEKCX,
who will supply illustrations for the text- in the
body of the book. The aim of the editor will not
be so much to increase the number of bis engrav
ings, as to secure for those ho publishes the ut
most finish the artist can give them ; for common
wood-cuts are so easily multiplied, that the most
indifferent publication may outrank in dreary dis
play the choicest periodical.
The Editor does not feel, that with kis own rea
ders, he can increnso his claims to respect by in
sisting on any very great superiority of -Graham'
over several similar -publications, but thinks he
may safely confide in their friendship for the
Magazine, and in its past management for its pre
sent list, and such increase as naturally grows out
of an extended circulation in a country where
readers are multiplying so rapidly.
Of the January number the first adition will be
30,000 copies, and the editor trusts his old friends
will be so prompt in renewing old clubs, and ex
tending the list among new ones, that the first
odition shall bo but half os what the year will ul
timately establish, as the permanent circulation of
Postac.e. Subscribers in any part of theUnited
States may now receive the Magazine, by mail,
at three cents a number or thirty-six cenU a year
postage, payable at the Post-office where it is re
ceived. Postmasters and Editors all over the Union, are

thy the Caloric age. w hich is just now being ush

any which proceeded it. The Home Journal, edi
ted by Geo. P. Morris, and N. P. Willis, is well
known as the best family newspaper in America;

Richard Storrs Willis with Lowell Mason, Geo.-H.

OUSEIIOLD WORDS. A MONTHLY
MAGAZINE AT ?2 PER YEAR. Only
those who read the serial so promptly issued every
week by Dickens, with thoughtful appreciation,
know how to prize it. '-Household Words" is a
modern journal for the people, uevotea to common
subjects, uncommonly treated, excellent in style,
in "-emus, in manner, and wonderfully fertile in
subject. The pieces are tho right length; they
exhibit wonderful variety and are attuned to a
harmonious key and remarkable unity of effect.
For the money, there is not the equal of "House
hold Words"' for a family journal. Pleasant sto
ries, useful knowledge, graceful anecdotes, eharm
ing essays, alternate in its pages. It is not al
ways convenient to secure a copy of the weekly
issue on the arrival of a steamer; in order to enjoy7
regularly this delightful work, we advise our. rea-,
ders to possess themselves of the handsome month
ly reprint of McEIrath A Baker, who bring out
'Household Words" with commendable punctuali
ty, at New-York. Frederick Parker. 35 Washing-
