NO GOD !
The following verses by that sweetest of
American poetesses, Mrs. LYDIA
SIGDURNEY, suggested by the words in the
14th Psalm of David, "The fool hath said in
his heart, There is no God,", is one of the
finest 'things in the language :
"No God ! No God !" The simplest flower,
That on the wild is found,
Shrinks, as it drinks its cup of - dew,
And trembles at the sound ;
"No God"—astonished Echo cries
Front out her cavern hoar,
And every wandering bird that flies
Reprove the Atheist-lore.
The solemn forest lifts its head,
The Almighty to proclaim,
The brook let, on its crystal urn,
Doth leap to grave his name.
How swells the deep and vengeful sea,
Along its billowy track,
The red Vesuvious opes his mouth
To hurl the falsehood back. •
The palm-tree, with its princly crest,
The coaeoa's leafy shade,
The bread fruit bending to its lord,
In yen far-island glade ;
The winged seeds, that, borne by winds,
The roving sparrows feed,
The melon on the desert sands,
Confutethe scorner's creed.
"No God!" With indignation high
The fervent Sun is stirr'd,
And the pale Moon turns paler still,
At such an impious word ;
And from their burning thrones, the Stars
Look down with angry eye,
That thus a worm of dust should mock •
THE UNKNOWN GUEST.
A. REMINISCENCE OF THE LIFE OF WASHING-
One pleasant eveingin the month of June,
in the man year 17—, a was observed en
tering The borders of a wood; near the'Hud
son river, his appearance that of a person
above the common rank. The inhabitants
- of a country village would have dignified
him with the title of "squire;" and from his
manners , pronounced him proud; but those
more accustomed to his society, would In
form you that there was something like a
military air about him.
His horse panted as if it had been hard
pushed for some miles; yet from the owner's
frequent stops to caress the patient animal,
lie could not be charged with the want of hu
manity, but seemed to be actuated by some
urgent necessity. The rider forsaking a
good road for a by-path leading through the
woods, indicated a desire to avoid the gaze
of other travellers.
He had not left the house where he inqui
red the direction of the above mentioned path
more than two hours, before the quietude of
the place was broken by the noise of distant
thunder. He was soon after obliged to dis
mount, travelling becoming dangerous, as
darkness concealed surrounding objects, ex
cept when the lightning flash afforded him a
momentary view of his situation.
A peal louder and of longer duration than
any of the preceding, which now burst over
his head, seeming as if it would rend the
woods assunder, was quickly, followed by a
heavy fall of rain, that penetrated the clothes

Almost exhausted with the labors of the
day, he was about . making such disposition
of the saddle and his overcoat as would ena
ble him to pass the night with what comfort
circumstances would admit, when he espied
a light glimmering through the trees. Ani
mated with the hope of better lodgings, he
determined to proceed.
The way, which was steep, became atten
ded with more obstacles the further he ad
vanced, the soil being composed of clay
which the rain had rendered so soft that his
feet slipped at every step. By the utmost
perseverance, this difficulty was finally over
come without any accident, and he had the
pleasure of finding himself in front of a decent
looking farm house. The watch dog began
barking, which brought the owner to the
"Who is there 1" said he.
"A friend who has lost his way and is in
search of a place of shelter," was the an-
"Come in, sir," added the speaker, "and
whatever my house will afford, you shall
I have with welcome,"
"I must provide for the weary componion
of my journey," remarked - the other.
But the farmer undertook the task, and af
ter conducting the new corner ir,to a room
where his wife was seated, he led the horse
to a well stored barn; and there provided for
him most bountifully.
On rejoining the traveller, he observed,
"That is a noble animal of your's sir."
"Yes," was the reply, "and I am sorry
that I was obliged to misuse him so as to
make it necessary to give you so much trou
ble with_the care of him, but I have to thank
you for your kindness to both of us."
"I did no more than my duty, sir," said
the entertainer, "and, therefore, am entitled
to no thanks. But Susan," added he; turn
ing to the hostess, with a half reproachful
took, "why have you not given the gentle
man something to eat 'I"
Fear had prevented the good woman from
exercising a well known benevolence, for a
robbery had been committed by a lawless
t band of depredators but a few weeks before
in that neighborhood, and as report stated
I that the ruffians were all well dressed, her
i imagination suggested that this man might
Ibe one of them.
I At her husband's remonstrance, she now
I readily engaged in repairing her error, by pre
paring a splendid repast. During the meal
there was much interesting conversation
among the three.
As soon as the worthy countryman perceiv
ed that his guest had satisfied his appetite,
he informed him that it was now the hour at
which the family usually Orformed their de
votions, inviting him at the same time to be
The invitation was accepted in these
"It would afford me the greatest pleasure
'to commune with my Heavenly Preserver,
after the event of the day; such exercises
prepare us for the repose which we seek in
sleep:" - . -
The host now reached the Bible from the
shelf, and after reading a chapter, and sing
ing, concluded the whole with a fervent
' prayer; then, lighting a pine knot, conducted
the person he had entertained to his chamber,
wishing him a good night's rest, and retired
to an adjoining apartment.
"John," whispered the woman, "that is a
good gentleman, and not one of the highway
men, as !supposed."
"Yes, Susan ; " said he, "I like him better
for thinking of his God, than all hiskind in
quiries after our welfare. I wish our, Pe
ter had been at home from the army, if it
was only to hear this good man talk ; I - am
sure Washington himself could not say more
for his country, nor give a better history of
the hardship endured by our brave soldiers.'
"Who knows, now," inquired the wife,
"but it may be himself, after all, my dear !
for they say he does travel just so, all alone,
"Hark! what's that?"
The sound of a voice came from the cham
ber of their guest, who was now engaged in
his private religious worship. Aftei thank
ing his Creator for his many mercies, and
asking a blessing on the inhabitants of the
house, he continued:
"And now' Almighty Father if it be Thy
holy will that we shall obtain a place and
name among the nations of the earth, grant
that we may/be enabled to show our gratitude
for Thy goodness, by our endeavors to fear
and obey Thee. ' Bless us with wisdom to our

loved Son ; nevertheless, not my will, but
Thine be done. Amen." '
The next morning the traveller declining
the pressing solicitation 'to breakfast with
his host, declared it was necessary for him
to cross the river immediately, at the same
time offering part of his purse as a compen
sation for what he had received ) which was
"Well, sir," continued he, "since you will
not permit me to recompense you for your
trouble, it is just that I should inform you on
whom you have conferred so many obliga
tions, and also added to them, by requesting
your assistance in crossing the river. I had
been cut yesterday, endeavoring to obtain
some information of our enemy, and being
alone, ventured too far from the camp. On
my return, T was surprised by a foraging par
ty, and only escaped, by my knowledge of
the roads, and the fleetness of my horse.—
My name is George Washington.
Surprise kept the listener still for a mo
ment; then, after unsuccessfully repeating
the invitation to partake of some refreshment,
he hastenod to call two negroas, with whose
assistance he placed the horse on a small
raft of timber that was lying in the river,
near the door, and soon conveyed the Gener
al to the opposite side of the river, where he
left him to pursue his way to the camp,
wishing him a safe and prosperous journey.
On his return to the house, he found that
while he was engaged in making preparation
for conveying the horse across the river, his
illustrious visitor had persuaded his wife to
accept a token of remembrance, which the
family are prowl of exhibiting to this day.
The above is one of the hazards encounter
ed by this great patriot, for the purpose of
transmitting to posterity the treasures we
now enjoy. Let us acknowledge the bene
fits received, by our endeavors to preserve
them in their purity; and keeping in remem
brance the great Source whence these bles
sings flow, we may be enabled to render our
names worthy of being enrolled with that of
the father of his country.
Have you an Aim for Life ?
'More particularly to, the youngeru portion of
our readers would we direct.the question, have
you an aim for life - A gifted German wri
ter nas said, "I reverence the individual who
understands distinctly what it isle wishes;
who unweariedly advances—who knows the
means conducive to his object, and can seize
and use them.
Have an airn, = -let resolution be your motto,
and you have within your power a talisman
which will unlock before you the mysteries
of the universe ; its charm is more, potent
than the lamp of Aladdin, and will prove in
its resources more exhaustless than the
purse of Fortunatus.
Well would it be, could every one entering
upon the arena of active life become imbued
with the spirit of these lines :
"Are you in earnest, seize this very minute,
What you can do, or think you can, begin it,
Only engage, and then the .nind grows heated,
Begin it, and the work will be completed."
Do you wish to distinguish yourself on the
stage of political strife, and crown yourbrow
with laurels of unfading lustre? Then strive
and wait, your time will surely come.
If, like Demosthenes, for the sake of at
taining your object, you can confine yourself
from the cheerful haunts of social life, and
there give your days and nights to ceaseless
toil. if you will wage a mortal combat
against natural defects, and bend all objects
to your will, then like him you may electri
fy a nation with your eloquence and wield it
in the cause of truth, you may set in motion
springs of action which shall go on for ages
speeding the right, or touch some chord
which shall vibrate to all -eternity.
What made Napoleon great ? For great
he surely was, though far be it from us to as
pire to such greatness. His motto was :
"Impossible is the adjective of fools," and
like him, we must adopt it if we would be
freed from the ever-binding thraldom of cir
cumstances, and where there is no beaten
path within our ken, we must ourselves act
as pioneers in the road to greatness.
It rests with you whether you will be fix
ed stars in the firmament of mind, secure
about which lesser plannets shall revolve in
beautiful harmony, or mere transient meteors,
seen for a moment and then forgotten.
Many drift along the current of life with- •
out an aim, like straws upon the current of a
stream, sometimes they are caught by sur
rounding objects, and again they are floated
along unmindful of their destiny.
As carbon by crystalization may become
diamond, so they may by propor intellectual
and moral training become purified and refin
ed, prepared for any station which, in the or
der of Providence, may be assigned to us.—
Let then our first aim be for purity of heart
and integrity of action ; let us then strive for
knowledge, if for no ether than its own sake.
Let.us not give up our precious time to pleas-
ure which dissipate the mind and soon be
come stale ; which are altogether insufficient
to satisfy the longings of our immortal na
ture, but rather let us quench our thirst for
happiness at the Pierian spring, whose wa
ters never pale, but grow more delicious the
deeper draughts we take.—lron City.

The Father of Commodore Perry..
SOUTH KINGSTOWN, March 21, 1855
There are living in the south part of this
State, all in good health, ten persons, the
children of the same parents, and the only
children they ever had, whose united ages
amount to seven hundred and eleven, in the
following order : 81, 80, 77, 75, 73, 70, 68,
66, 63 and 58. Their name is Tucker, and
they belong to one of the most numerous
families in our State. The family have for a
great many years occupied a tract of land in
the western part of South Kingstown, known
There is a carious Revolutionary fact con
nected with this family, which few of your
readers have ever heard. One of the uncles
of the present children, by the name of Si
meon was a quiet and conscientious farmer,
who did not believe it right to do military
duty, even in "the times that tried men's
souls." A corporal was sent with a file of
men to distrain his cow. A man by the
name of Burt commanded the squad, and
Raymond Perry, afterward Captain Perry,
and father to the present Commodore, was
one of the party. Tucker went into the field
alone to head off the cow, and they fired up
on him. One ball strick him in the fore
head, and he fell instantly dead. Four guns
were aimed and two missed fire. Perry's went
off, and it was believed at the time, and is, to
this day by the family, that his was the fatal
shot. He was then a young man and immedi
ately left the country and went to sea. It was
during one of these voyages, while returning
frdm Europe as mate of a vessel bound for
Newport, that he formed the attachment for
his wife, who was a passenger in the ship.
He took her to Narragansett, and carried her
on a pillion on horseback, from the South
Ferry .. to his father's, Judge Freeman Perry,
and Married her.
But to return. If any of your readers are
curious to know how the family have preser
ved their health, we are familiar with the
habits of only one, the second son of Joshua
Tucker, now eighty years old. He has been
a hard working farmer, fisherman and gun
ner—not a temperance man but always a
temperate one. He is now somewhat afflic
ted with rheumatism, and the remedy which
he takes is to go down to sea with his pole
and line,,and stand for three or four hours to
gether to his waist in the breakers, "earn
humming," or "gand humming," whichever
is the right term for that method of fishing
The Care of the Eyes
Until one begins to feel the effect of im
paired vision, he can hardly estimate the val
ue of eyesight, and consequently from igno
rance or carelessness, he is apt to neglect a
few simple precautions, by the obser
vance of which, his sight might be preserved.
We are aware that the colUmns of a news
paper do not afford the space, nor is an edi
tor qualified to treat scientifically of the in
juries which accrue to the organs of vision ;
but certainly the knights of the sanctum
ouget to have some practical experience upon
artificial light, more of which they consume
than falls to the lot of other men.
Let us then give our readers a few • hints
upon the preservation of sight, which we de
duce from our own experience, and if we are
incorrect, our medical friends, and particu
larly opticians, are welcome to our columns
to correct our errors. We are not about to
interfere with those who have resorted to
spectacles, for the optician alone can benefit
them ; but there are multitudes who, per
haps, ought to wear spectacles but will not,
either from their inconvenience or from an
idea that thereby they confess that time has
taken too strong a hold upon them. Such
ask, whether they can see better than they
no .v tio without the use of glasses ? To the
most of these we answer yes—provided you
will follow these simple directions. First,
never use a writing desk or table with your
face towards a window. In such a case the
rays of light come directly upon the pupil of
the eye, and causing an unnatural and forced
contraction thereof, soon permanently injures
the sight, Next—when your table or desk
is near a window, sit so that your face turns
from, not towards the window, while wri
ting. If your face is towards the window, '
the oblique rays strike the eye and injure it !
nearly as much as the direct rays when you
sit in front of the window. It is best always
to sit or stand while reading or writing, with
the window behind you ; and next to that
with the light coming over your left side—
then the light' illumines the paper or book
and does not shine abruptly on the eye-ball.
The same remarks are applicable to artifi
cial light. We are often asked what is - the
best light ; gas, candles oil or camphene.—
Our answer is, it is immaterial which, pro
vided the light of either be strong enough
and do not flicker. A gas fish tail burner
should never be used for reading , or writing,
becasue there is a constant oscillation or
flickering of the flame. Candles, unless they
have self consuming wicks which do not re
quire snuffing, should not be used. We need
scarcely say that oil wicks which crust over
and thus diminish the light, are good for
nothing ; and the same is true of compounds
of the nature of camphene, unless the wicks
are properly trimmed of all their gumary de
posit after standing twenty-four hours.
But whatever the artificial light used, let
it strike the paper or book which you are
using, whenever you can, from over the left
shoulder. This caa always be done with
gas, for that light is strong enough, and so is
the light from camphene, oil, &c. provided it
comes through a circular burning like the ar
gand. But the light whatever it be, should
always be protected from the air in the room
by a glass chimney, so that the light may be
The education, moral and intellectual, of
every individual, must be chiefly his own work.
There is a prevailing and fatal mistake upon
this subject. It seems to he supposed that a
young man must be sent first to grammar
school and then to college, he must of course
become a scholar; and the pupil is apt to im
agine he is to become the mere passive re
cipient of instruction, as he is of the light
and atmosphere which surrounds him. But
this dream of indolence must be awakened to
the important truth, that, if you aspire to ex
cellence, you must become active and vigor
ous co-operators with your teachers, and
work out your own distinction with an ardor
that cannot be quenched, a perseverance that
considers nothing done while anything yet
remains to be done.
Rely upon it that the ancients were right.
Quis que suns fortunos fabor—both in moral's
and intellect, we give the final shade to our
own characters, and thus become emphatical
ly the architects of our own fortunes. How
else should it happen, gentlemen, that young
men who have had precisely the Berne oppor
tunities, should be continually presenting us
with different `results, and rushing to such
opposite destinies Difference in talent will
not solve it, because that difference is very
often in favor of the disappointed candidate.
You may see issuing from the walls of the
same school—nay, from the bosom of the
same family—two young men, of whom one
is admitted to be a genius of high order, the
other scarcely above the point of mediocrity,
yet, you shall see the genius perishing in
poverty, obscurity and wretchedness ; while
on the other hand, you'shall observe the me
diocre plodding his slow but sure way up the
hill of life, gaining steadfast footing at every
step, and mounting at length to eminence
and distinction, an ornament to his family, a
blessing to his country.
Now, whose work is this 1 Manifestly
their own. They are the architects of their
own fortunes. The best seminary of learn
ing that can open its portals to you, can do
no more than afford to you the opportunity of
instruction ; but it must depend at least on
yourselveS, whether you are instructed or
not, or to what point you will push your in
struction. And of this be assured—l speak
from observation, a certain truth : there is no
excellence without great labor. It is the fact
of Fate from which no power of genius can
absolve you. Genius unexerted is like a poor
moth that flutters around a candle till it scor
ches itself to death. If genius be desirable
at all, it is only of that great - and magnani
mous kind, which the condor of South Amer
ica, pitches from the summit of Chimborazo
above the clouds,and sustains itself at pleas
ure in that empyrical region, with an energy
rather invigorated than weakened by the ef
fort. It is in this capacity for high and long
continued exertion—this careering and wide
sweeping comprehension of mind—and those
long reaches of thought that
Pluck bright honor from the pale faced moon,
Or dive into the bottom of the deep,
Where fathomed line could never reach the
And drag up drowned honor by the locks.
This is the prowess, and those the hardy
achievements which are to enrol your names
among the great men of the earth.
But how are you to gain the nerve, the
courage for enterprises of this pith and mo
ment ?—r will tell you—as Milo obtained
that hoc sign o vinces ; for this must be your
work, not that of your teachers. Be you not
wanting to yourselves, and you will accom

try have a right to expect.—Wirt.

Value of WiCres iu Chini
Not long since, a yciiing English merchant
took his wife with him to Hong Kong, China,
where the wealthy couple were visited'by a'
wealthy Mandarin. The latter regarded the
lady very attentively, and seemed todwell'
with delight upon her movements. When'
she at' length left the apartment he said to
her husband in broken English,, worse than'

It was difficult to say whether the 'young

sion—an assertion which the Chinaman was'
very slow to believe.
The merchant afterwards had a hearty
laugh with his pretty young wife; and told
her that he had just discovered her full valu'e
as he had that moment :been offered seven
thousand dollars for her—a very high figure
"as wives were going" in China at the time:
A work on "Duels and Dueling" has re.'
cently been published in - Boston, which con-.
I tains far more amusement than - one would
( expect to find in such a volume. The case
of Major Hillas and Fenton, in lieland, in'
which the former gentleman was shot, is an
illustration. The Judge,- in' summing up the:
I evidence, said to the jury : "Gentlemen, it
is my business to lay down the law to you,'
and I will. The law says the killing a man
in a duel is murder ; and I am bound to tell'
you it is murder; therefore, in the diScharge
of,my duty, I tell you so - ; but I tell you, at .
the same time, a fairer duel than this I never
heard of in the whole course of'my life !"
Two physicians, by the name of Mead and
Woodward, sought in England, and the latter
slipping, his opponent exclaimed--" Take
your life." To which the prostrate Galen'
replied, "Anything but your physic."
"Old Put," one of the heroes of our revolu-'
lion, was very odd also in his ideas of the
code. He agreed to meet a British 'officer . at
a specified place and hour, without seconds.
When the Briton repaired to the spot he was
greeted by a shot from "Old Put," lying in
• erdu about thirty rods off. While "Put"
was re-loading the officer approached and
asked, "What are you about to . do? Is this
the conduct of an American officer and a
man of honor ?" 'tWhat am I'about to do ?"
.replied the General. "A pretty question to •
put to a man you intend to murder ! I'm
about to kill you ; and if you don't beat a
retreat in less time than it• takes old Heath
to hang a tory, you are a gone dog." The'
The old Wolf-Hunter accepted another
challenge from a British officer. At the ap
pointed time and spot - the officer found him
seated near a - barrel—apparently of gunpow
der—smoking a pipe. He asked the En
glishmaq to sit on the other side of the bar:-
rel, and remarking that "there was an equal
chance for both," set fire to the match: The
officer retreated in a hurry, when Old Put
laughed at him saying—"you are just as
brave a man as 'hook you to be; this is no
thing but a barrel of onions to try yon by ;
but you don't like the smell."
