A greenest light and tender
Re-clothes each field and plain
It is the new year's gladness
Returning once again.
It ii the spring 10 welcome
After chill winter's sway,
Bidding each sorrow vanish ,
And every heart be gay.
1 too awake from dreaming,
For rh ! I look on ibee !
So U my winter over
And spring revives in ma.
Through all her thousand pores.
Old earth awakens from her winter's dream.
And dozing nature feels the quickening pulse
That stirs to life within her torpid breast,
And gushes out in little rills of joy.
Which gently breathe their softly murmured
For all that is. and is so soon to be.
The sun mounts high in his daily course.
And casta his mid-day beams in burning rays ;
Tet fails to melt the deeply drifted banks
In sheltered nook, and shadowy hollows piled.
The swelling bud and the tiny pushing leaf
hows moving life within its woody veins,
Which fcy and by shall burst upon tho view
In all its glorious wealth of leaves and flowers.
The early birds, so late from southern ciimea,
Awake us with the r native gongs of praise.
And lowing cattle join in the glad refrain
Which man fills up and offers to his God.
Those Jerome girls had a piano, and
what Aunt Prissy calls '"bristles carpet,"
on their parlor flor. They had lately in
troduced into ' their front door yard, a
jrame, which the good lady persisted
in designating as "crocket," with a dim
notion that it was an invention made by
l'avid Crocket, and therefore disreputable.
There was a little odd cornering window,
where Aunt l'rissy sat at work ; and from
there she could look over into the Jerome
place, which hud been fixed and improved
until it was quite a tasteful and pretty resi
dence. The old squat farm house, with its
blinking windows i.nd overhanging eaves,
faced by that admiration of the ancients, a
red barn, had been altered into a tasteful
cottage, with a piazza embowered in honey
suckle and rose vines. The barn had been
moved out of view, opening a prospect to
the river, with its fringy willows. A neat,
ornamental fence had been built, and trees
and shrubs planted and Cower beds laid
Aunt Prissy shook her head ruefully over
what she called those "(Join's" every time
he looked out of the little cornering win
daw: and she did look out many times a
day, somewhat to Ihe detriment of her reel
ing and knotting on a little wheel, a remin
iscence of her girlhood she had never given
tip. For Aunt Prissy sighed heavily over
the degeneracy of modern stocking yarn ;
and, if anything, to her mind, was an out
ward and vinible sign of the approaching
end of the world, it was "them flimsy
bought things through which a person can
poke their finger.'
"1 don't believe Uncle Abner ever would
hive thought of making such changes in
the old ilace." Aunt Prissy remarked to
het fritter-in law, Mrs. J.abbett, who was
f ml of good old ways too, and loved the
More of nice, old fashioned things in the
liabbett farm house, and yet h:id thought
more and lived more in her time than Aunt
Prissy had, "if it hadn't been for the hee
t .rin' of them girls." And the old lady
lid J up a long, cotton sotk she was knitting
for her favorite nephew. Asa (she always
knit Asa's Blockings three inches longer in
the leg thad she did the others) and she
looked at it critically through her glasses.
"It does folks good to get stined up once
in a hile,"reinarked Mrs. Babbett, who was
stepping about in her bruikins, to brush up
the tidy room, with gieat patches of sun
shine lying on the rag carpet and the braid
ed mats, and lighting up a grain of dust if
there had been one; "and Uncle Abner has
appeared younger and smarter," the added,
' ev;r s:ne the girls got back from school.
Tiie improvements have given him some
thing to think about besides his rhcum
atiz. ?'
"There they are, crocketing again, "tried
Aunt Prissy, putting her wrinkled old face
cut between the dimity curtains with smells
of southern wood and sweet clover coming
thro-uh the open window. "I can't for
the life of in e see what sense there is in
knockir.e them balls around. They'd a
f-ight better be dring something useful. I'll
be bound Uncle Abner don't get bis socks
mended once a month. Do hear 'em laugh
an i holler like loons. I must say, Miran
dy, that sounds brazen."
"It's only -a bit of fun," replied Mrs.
Bbbett, who was putting up her combs
n-.'W, before the glass. "And for my part
I like to see the young folk enjoy them
selves. It carries me back to my owu young
"There was no such goings on when we
were gils," remarked Aunt Prissy, pushing
her cap frill more out between the window
curtains, and letting her knitting rest in her
lap. "It makes me ache, most, when I
think how pertickler Miss Jerome was
about the house; and now look there at the
doors all stretched open, as if it was gen'ral
trainin', and the muslin curtins a blowin
out of the front room winders, and the suu
streamia' right in on that bristles carpet,
and everything speckled with flies."
"Sophy says she won't have anything in
tha house too good to use every day," put
in Mrs. Babbett, bitting down ia her favor
it rocker, in one of the patches of sunlight
and gently oscillating to and fro, with a big,
yellow pussy cat at her feet, aod basket of
the week's mending close by her elbow.
"She wants to keep the rooms light and
open, because they look pleasant; and her
notion is to make life cheerful."
"Well," sighed Aunt Prissy, "I should
think poor Miss Jerome would almost groan
in her grave. They know how to make the
money fly ; and a man would need a pretty
long puss that would marry one of them
girls. To my thinking, they'll stay single
many a long day. Sensible young men like
our Asa ain't a goin' to be kitched by such
highty tighty creatures, with rag bags
stuck on the back of their heads. I say
them Jerome girls is highty tighty creatures
with their new notions ; and for my part, I
pity Uncle Abuer,for I don't believe he has
any peace of his life."
"You needn't pity him," quietly remark
ed Mrs. Uabbett. "Bless your heart he
likes it. You never saw a good-natured old
man yet who wasn't pleased to have his
girls pussying around him. It wiil keep
him smart for ten years yet."
"Wall," rcmaiked Aunt Prissyf taking
up her knitting needles .again pnd begin
ning to clank them vigorously. "I guess
he'll have a chance to keep them by him
yet awhile. They ain't going to marry" off
so dreadful easy, let me teli you. Our Asa
and Henry Fisher love to run there, and
they'll fool round as much as you please ;
but when it comes to marrying that's anoth
er story."
"Uncle Abner won't wart his girls to
marry any more than other folks, and I
shouldn't be a bit surprised if they was old
maids after all," said Mrs. Babbett.
A number of days passed, and Aunt Pris
sy got the notion into her head that there
was a mystery going on in the house some
thing to be hushed and kept out of sight.
She had heard her brother Bon and his
wife talking late at night ; and Asa, her fa
vorite, seemed hardly himself. He hurried
in to his meals, and was off again, appear
ing to have lost all his relish for jokes and
fun, although he was unusually particular
about his clothes. Nathan, the younger
brother, kept nudging and poking Asa ; and
twice he made him downright vexed, so
that Uncle Ben was obliged to speak, al
though there was n queer, dry smile curling
round his lip-sat the time. Aunt Prissy
pricked up her ears and opened her eyes,
and wondenid what was to pay, but she was
too proud to ask.
"I should just like to know what Asa
brought home from Milton iu that big paper
bundle," said she, trotting out nfter sister
iu law into the sweet milk room.
T'U by, did he hriii home a bundle?" io
qaired Mrs. Babbett, and looking half guilty
at her pretence of ignorance.
"Yes, of course he did ; .and you know
well enough, MiranJy. There's some con-
jiinng going on in tins house, mat you re
all trying to hide from me ; but thank the
Lord, my curiosity won't kill me 1" and she
flounced back into tin .sitting-room before
Mrs. Babbitt could devise an answer.
In spite of her offended dignity, the old
lady kept thinking of that bundle ; ami at
last she opened the chamber door and crept
up the stairs, and slipt into Asa's room, soft
ly pulling out the bureau drawer, for fear
Mirandy should hear a squeak and guess
what she was about.
"1 vum !" she exclaimed aloud, "if here
ain't a bran new suit of clothes ; the finest
kind of broadcloth, as smooth and shiny as
satin, every bit good enough to be married
in, and better than his lather ever had since
the day he was born. The cxtravigaut
young dog ! I wonder what ho wants of a
white vest ?"
When Mrs. Babbett came into the sitting
room rea"ly to slick up a bit :.fier her morn
ing's work, there Aunt Prissy, sut iu the
cornering window, with the dim'tty curtains
fluttering in the fresh breeze, and breaking
the shadows of the morning vines and bal
sams opening white and red, in the little
strip of ground beneath. The Jerome
place looked just as open and inviting as
usual with dew clinging to the pink roses
about the porch and a pair of tripping
hands playing a tripping tunc on the piano.
Aunt Prissy had forgotten her tiff, and
thought best to couceal her discovery con
cerning the clothes.
"Land o' Goshen," said she, all of a sud
den, "if there ain't our Asa going into the
Jerome's front gate. What, arrant can he
have at this time o' day ? And Henry Fish
er has just hitched his horse by the post. I
think them girls ought to be ashamed of
themselves. Uncle Abner is coming out
now, and Matildy has run out after him
with that rag-bag stuck on the back of her
head, all frizzled aod frowzled. I don't see
how anybody can call that girl purty. She's
fussing round the old man, brushing his coat
and quirking up his hair, and he looks as
pleased as Cuffy. I do believe Uncle's get
ting childish. Mercy ou-us Melindy, Elder
LI a Heck has just arriv' in his shay; and
they've brought out into the stoop some
chairs, and Uncle Ab has gone round the
house with him. .I've is good miud as ever
I had to eat to happen over and see what
it's all about. Couldn't you trump up some
excuse for me, Melindy? You know I don't
want to have it appear as if I mistrusted
"You might borrow a nutmeg," replied
Mrs. Babbett. demurely, looking down at
her work. "I thought I should make some
cake, and we are just out."
"That's the talk," said Aunt Prissy. So
she put on her 6haker, and trotted across
the road. . The moment she was out of the
house, Mrs. Babbett burst into a hearty
laugh ; and Uncle Ben, who appeared to
have been lying concealed in the wood-shed.
came in, and sitting down, went off into a
regular guffaw.
"The cat's out of the bag by this time
Melindy," said he, when he could manage
to speak. "And won't the old lady steam ?
I should like to see her."
"I am afraid we -have carried the thing
too far," returned Mrs. Babbett. "She
won't get over it easy."
Meanwhile Aunt Prissy had traversed
the pleasant, shady door yard of the Jerome
pluce, and mounted the front steps. The
fron't door was standing wide open. She
walked in with a neighborly freedom, and
tapped at the parlor door which was slightly
ajar. A low murmurous, humming, buz
zing, cooing sound appeared to issue from
the appartuient; but still no voice said
"walk in." The old lady's impatience grew
apace ; and at last she gave the door a push
and entered the room unbidden. Good
gracious! what a sight met her eyes. There
sat Harry Andrews "snuggled" as she af
terwards expressed it, close up to Tilly Jer
ome with his arm tucked cosily round her
waist ; while the young lady herself looked
flustered and rosy, with the obnoxious rag
bag somewhat discomposed.
"Ain't you ashamed of yourself, Matildy
Jerome," cried Aunt Prissy, pointing her
long Gnger, with righteous indignation ex
pressed on every feature, "to be sparking
with that young man right in open day
light?" "And why shouldn't we be sparking?"
cried Harry Andrews, as bold as brass, hold
ing Tilly a little tighter, "when we mean to
be married to morrow ?"
Aunt Prissy was stunned, and dazed. She
felt as if she had been suddenly taken with
the blind staggers. Without another word,
she walked out of the room as straight ae a
caudle. Her ideas were so completely ob
fusticated that, instead of going out of the
front door, she proceeded down a littte pas
sage way and on to a porch that led into the
vegetable garden. Behind a screen of lilac
and snowball bushes voices were issuing and
merry laughter.
Those were the tones of Asa Babbett. her
favorite nephew. Aunt Prissy's heart stood
still, and then it gave a great jump.
"The old lady don't suspect a thing,"
said he. "There never was such a sell.
Won't she be knocked up when I introduce
you as her niece ?"
"I'm ulrnost sorry you played such a
prank ; for I want her to learn to liko me."
Tt was Sophy Jerome's voice that uttered
these words.
Aunt Prissy waited to luar no more. In
a towering rage she flew down the steps and
presented herself to the astonished pair.who
naturally ehatijred th-ir ro"itiot. in lmsie
ami turned a variety of bright colors.
"You ain't fooled the old woman quitj so
bad as you thought to !" she cried with her
eyes flashing and the specs just ready to
tumble off the tip of , her nose.
Aa saw he must face the music; so he
tried to laugh it off. "Don't make too se
rious a thing of it. Auntie," said he, in a
coaxing tone, "Sophy ain't a bit to blame.
I did it all for a joke, and meant to confess
and beg pardon before I went to bed to
"I didn't think you'd do such a thing,
Asa Babbett," and a series of dry twitches
began to convulse the old lady's mouth and
chin. "I could stand 'niCst any kind ot
hectoring, and never inindsd your putting
a bee in my cap, when you was a shaver,and
making me an apple pie bed ; but to think
of your getting promised to one of tho Jer
ome ga!s. and making a fool of your old
Aunt into the bargain !" And Aunt Prissy
broke down into a series of hysterical sobs.
Nothing that Asa or Sophy could do or
say sufficed to picify her. She crept back
over home much crestfallen, and opened the
sitting room door where Mrs. Babbett was
at work.
The next nunrning, which was bright and
breezy, a great bustle arose early in the
house ; and she knew that all hands were
getting ready to go to Asa's wedding. She
could hear Asa himself tramping about
overhead and putting on those new cltthe";
and although he was immensely happy and
busy, he did find time to coine and execute
one last series of thumps on the old lady's
"Come, Aunty, don't hold a grudge
against a follow," he coaxed. "Do come
over to the wedding. You always said you
would dance at my wedding, and now you're
going to give me the cold shoulder. It's
too confounded bad."
Not aword did she answer, although her
heart thumped hard and fast. By and by
Mrs. Babbett was dressed in her black silk,
and a tasteful cap, trimmed with pink bows;
and Unci Ben had shaved and donned' a
clean dickey, and poked his hair up very
high in front, and then they all went off,
and left the house solitary and alone. Aunt
Prissy began to feel vury forlorn and more
aggrieved than ever. She got up, pushed
the bureau away, and stole out into the sit
ting twin in her double gown and list shoes,
and peeped forth from the hule cornering
window. There was music playing, and
the neighbors girls were dotting the green
dooryard with their light dresses. She
thought with a kind of dumb swelling of
the heart that her boy was being married
over there, and she, his old doting, fond
Aunt, was staying away in a fit of the 6ulks.
Why should she bite off her nose to spite
her face? They probably wouldn't mi.-s
her at all ; but she had half a mind to dress
up and walk over there, just for all the world
as if nothing had happened.
Accordingly the old lady slipped on her
tibinet gown, and donned her gold beads
and an amazing head dress belonging to the
last century ; and just as Elder Halleck was
performing the ceremony of the double wed-'
ding, with the brides looking as sweet as
twin rosebuds, who should come in but Aunt
Prissy, for all the world, as Uuelo Ben ex
pressed it, ''as stiff as buckram."
They had a good old-fashioned merry
time ; and Aunt Prissy actually danced un
der the waving apple boughs with Uncle
Abner ; and Asa put up the old gentleman
to give her a hearty smack, which caused
her to blush and bridle a good deal, though
I rather think she liked it.
"Wiil Aun't Prissy ever get reconciled
to the match ?" whispered Deaeon Dent's
wife to Mrs. Babbett."
"Law, ye Now Sophie has ceased to
be 0113 of those Jerome girls, and has be
come Asa's wife, thi old lady will thit.k her
A Beautifi'l Sentiment. Life bears
us on like the stream of a mighty river.
Our boat at first glides down the narrow
channel through tho playful murmurings of
the little brook and the winding of the
grassy borders. The trees shed their blos
soms over our young heads ; the flowers on
the brink seem to offer themselves to our
young hands ; we are happy iu hope, and
grasp eagerly at tho beauties around us ;
but the stream hurries ou, and still
our hands are empty. Our course in
youth and manhood is along a wider and
deeper flood, and amid objects more striking
and magnificent. We are animated at the
moving picture of enjoyment and industry
passing around us are excited at some
short-lived disappointment. The stream
bears us on, and our joys and griefs are alike
left behind us. We may be shipwrecked
we cannot bo delayed ; whether rough or
smooth, tho river hastens to its home, till
the roar of the oceau is in our ears, and the
tossing of the waves is beneath our feet, and
the land lessens from our eyes, and the
floods are lifted up around us, and we take
our leave of earth, and its inhabitants, un
til of farther voyage there is no witness save
the IuQnite and Eternal.
The Tuck Idea of We. ltii. The Meth-odi.-t
thus concludes an article on this sub
ject : "We would uot have men t desist
from the lawful pursuit of wealth, but we
would have them comprehend the true char
acter of the enterprise in which they are en
gaged. Riches bring an increase of respon
sibility which cannot be transferred to an
other. The faculty to acquire moncy.which
is given to some while denied to others, is a
talent, and is sulject to the same laws which
regulate the possession of other taUnts.
Souio m-n - I'1 -;e
this gift they are to use only for the promo
tion of the right, -whether in the pulpit,
the fbrum, or at the bar. In like manner
others have the gift of money making.
Everything they touch seems to turn into
gold. God has bestowed this gift on them
that they might bless the world. If
they employ it merely to hoard money, "or
to squander on themselves, they arc recreant
to a most sacred trust, and must account
to God."
Daxgek from using old Petroledm
Barrels. A case of poisoning has been
reported in Germany from the drinking of
rider that had been preserved in an old pe
troleum b'arrel, although the cask was thor
oughly cleansed before u.-ing. After the
funeral of the first victim the crave diggers
returned to the house and partook of the
same drink ; oue of theui soon afterwards
died, and the others had a narrow escape.
It is well for the public to know that petro
leum acts as a poison, the symptoms being
dizziness and vomiting, and it is unsafe to
use the old barrels for the storing of any
articles of foo 1 or drink.
A Printers' Puzzle. The following
"Printers' Puzzle'.' was taken from the
Printer Remittor:
Twice nine of us are eight of us,
Ten of us are three!
Five of us are four of us,
Who can WE" be ?
If this be not enough.
Or you incline to more,
Then SEVEN of us are FIVE of us,
Five of us are four 1
Our little four year old remarked to her
mamma going to bed, "I am not afraid of
the dark."
"No, of course you are not," replied her
mamma, "for it ca't hurt you."
"But, mamma, I was a little afraid once,
when I went in the pantry in the dark to
get a cookey. "
"What were you afraid of?", asked her
"I was afraid I couldn't find the cookies."
"I don't care much for a quiet baby, but
1 dote on a squalling one," said an old bach
elor. "Why, how strange !" admiringly
chorussed all the mothers in the room.
"Not at all," responded the bachelor, "be
cause, as soon as a brat begins to squall it's
always taken from the room 1" The bachel
or had no sooner delivered himself thus
than he took himself from the room, fol
lowed by maternal execrations.
A gentleman traveling on a steamer, one
day, at dinner was making away with a
large pudding close by, when he was told by
the servant that it wasdesort. "It matters
not to me," said he, "I would eat it if it
was a wilderness."
He who toys with time trifles with a fro
zen serpent, which afterwards turns upon
the hand that indulged the 6port, and in
flicts & deadly wound.

The Kidneys are two in number, sitnated at the
upper part ot the loin, surrounded by fat. and
consisting of three parts. Tit: the Anterior, the
Interior, and the Extorior.
The anterior absorbs Interior consist of ti
sues or veins, which serve a a deposit for the
urine and convey it to the exterior. Tb exte
rior is t conductor also, terminating ia a singl
tube, and called tbe Ureter. The ureter are con
nected with tb bladder.
Tbe bladder is composed of various covering
or tissues, divided into parti, vii : tb Upper, th
Lower, th Nervous, and the Mucous. The upper
expels, the lower retains. Many bar a desire to
urinate without tbe ability, others urinate with
out the ability to retain. Thi frequently occur
in children.
To cure these affections, we must bring into ac
tion the muscles, which are engaged in their va
rious functions. If they ere neglected, Gravel or
Dropsy may ensne.
The reader must also be made aware, that how
ever slight may be tbe attack, it is sure tt affeo
tbe bodily health and mental powers, as our flesh
and blood are supported from these sources.

H. T, Hrlvcold, Druggist:
Dear Sir : I nave been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel, bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have used variouf
medicinal preparations, and been ander the treat
ment of the most eminent Physieians, experien
cing but little relief.
Having seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician In
regard lo using your Extract Bnchu.
I did this because t had nsed all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and bad found them worthiest,
and soma quite injurious ; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined to ate no rem
edies hereafter unless I knew of tbe ingredient.
It was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
At yon advertised that it wa composed of bocha,
cubebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as an excellent combination, and,
ith his advice, after an examination of the arti
cle, and consulting again with the druggist, I
concluded to try it. I commenced its use about
eight months ago, t which time I wa confined
to my room From tbe first bottle I was astonish
ed and gratified at the beneficial effect and after
using it three week was able to walkout. I felt
much like writing you a full statement of my ease
at that time, but thought my improvement might
only be temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of groater value to yon
and more satisfactory to me.
I am now able to report that a cure it effected
after using the remedy for five months.
I have not used any Dow for three months, and
feel as well in all respect at I ever did.
Tour Buchu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor, a nice toni and invigorator of the
system, I do not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in tuch affections.
Should any doubt Mr. McCormick' statement,
be refers to tbe following gentlemen:
Hon. Wm. Bigler, ex -Governor Penn'a.
Hon Thomas B Florenae, Philadelphia.
Hon. J. C. Knox, Judge, Philadelphia.
