It has made many a home a prison, many a husband an enemy, mnnv a father a lyrnnl ; many children faiheiless and many wives wid ows, whose fathers or husbands yet live. And when I see a man neglecting a lovely looking w ife, and seeking his pleasure in the haunts of sin, to know whether most to pity or to Maine him, 1 wish to know if ihe wife of his bosom always gave him the un clouded welcome of a smile w hen he en tcreJ bis own door. If she did, but he cared not for it if she spread the wiles of her pure love to twine his heart, while he broke away from the sweet enchantment if she made it sun shine always in the house, nnd was cheer ful in adversity as well as gay in hours ol joy if she strove to bean angel at the gate to keep him w iihiu the Cden that she loved, while he would yield to the song of the sy ren and wander from the arms that embra ed him, to seek the embraces of others, even to the abandoned, then he is a villain, hatred of God and justly despised of men. And such are many of those whom we see in the road to ruin. The love of a fond wife woulJ have saved them, but they rejected it and deserved to perish. But if and a serious if if she meets him returning from his day's care and toil, in the field or the shop, or the study of the forum, or ihe senate, (it matters not where or what his labors, he flies from them with joy to find repose nnd peace in the para dise of his nw n home ;) but if she whom he loves mtets him wi'liout the joyous welcome of a glad heart and a sunlight eye, or with n frown, or look of cold indifference, or whining complaints, or the mere absence of delight : if she meets him not with the living, speaking, shining evidence that her heart leaps with gladness when its lord has come, it is not strange lo me that his heart sinks, and he seeks for pleasure where he looks not for love, lit can be h ippy with out love abroad, but home, though a heav en full of angels, without love is hell. Love is a thing of frail and delicate growth ; Moon rfcnked.soon fostered .feeble and vet strong: It will endure u.urh. suffer long and bear Wh it would bring down an angel's wing to earth, .nd yet mouol heavenwaid; hut not the lesa Il dieih of a word, a look, a thought ; And when it dies, it dies without a sign To led how fair it was in happier hours j Ii leavea behind reproaches and regrets, And biin mesa within aXecliou's welt, Fur which there is no healing. There is truth as well as poetry in this andoftthe domestic circle where poetry never had a worshiper, has felt the sad powers of this truth. "A word, a look," has been the death blow to love that shed bliss in that circle, and has driven a fond husband lorth to seek relief for a wounded spirit in scenes that allure to destroy. Mrs. Ellis in Iter "Wives in Englnnd," has most happily drawn the portrait of a wife at she should be "a being to come home to." It is no: wit, nor beauty, nor religion, that makes a wife a crown of rejoicing to her husband. Nor all these combined. A wife may have them and love her husband not ; give him an unclouded welcomo never ; make his honse no home. Oh ! man may beat with suffering; his heart Is a strong thing and g 'Id like to the grasp Of pain that wrings mortality : but teir One cord illeclion clings to. part one tie That binds hi n unto woman's delicate I e, And his great spirit yiclileth like a retd." When such a tho't as this is put into print, the most of readers laugh at it.as the soft sentimcntalism of ihe young poet. Il love dwells not here, joy is also a stranger; and if love has its home in thai house, " a word or look" may drive it faraway. English and American Manu factures.

"That's hat I call shoes ; none of your things without any shajie.and twihd together ; why there ain't a single nail in those shoes !" "What wiil you bet of that?" said the Judge. "Ten dollars, and the liquor !" said Tom, with the air of a man who had given his opinion and was willing to back it. The Major was called to hold the stakes, and the Judge told him the bet that there was not a nail in Tom's shoes. Tom, in a great hurry to pocket the money, eagerly remo ved his shoes and handed it up for examin ation, at the name time feeling commisera tion with the Jude on the loss of the X. "Hold on," said the Judj;e; "take off your stockings." Tom, in amazement, did so. Well," cried the Judge, "if there are not five good sized.nails, I'll eat shoes and ull!" Poor Tom put on his shoes and stock ings amidst shouts of laughter.nnd has nev- er to this day bragged of the superiority of English manufactures. Profane Lang untie. We would guard the young against the use of every word that is not perfectly pro per. Use no profane expression allude to no sentence that w ill put to the blush the most sensitive. You know not the ten dency of habitually using indecent or pro fane language. It may never be oblitera ted from your hearts. When you grow up, you will find at your tongue's end some expression which you would not use for any money it was one you learned when you were quite young. By now being careful, you will save yourself a great deal of mortificaton and sorrow. Good men have been taken sick, and become delirious. In these moments, they have used the most vile and indecent language imaginable. When informed of it, alter the restoration of health, they had no idea of the pain they had given their friends, aud stated lhat thse expressions they had learned and re- 'peated in childhood. Exchange Paper. Difficulty with France. We have intelligence from VVashington, that the Government has notified M. Pous sin, the French Minister, that his passports are ready for him or in other words, that he has been dismissed. Il has for some Weeks boon hinted that some difficulty was likely to arise from the reluctance of the French Government to receive Mr. Rives, the recently appointed American Minister to that Republic ; but the difficulties at VVashington did not arise solely from this. It appears that M. Poussin, addressed a note, on another subject, to Mr. Clayton, Secretary of State.some weeks sinre.which from il phrtieolojiy was deemed highly im pertinent. The President at once directed that the offensive ielier should be forward ed to the French Government. hut that Gov ernment not having noticed the dem:nd, and sufficient time therefor having elapsed, the Pres'd' iit h.s caused M. Poussin to bej informed that his pas-ports are ready for him. We a re informed that Mr. Pmissin's re call has Deen decided on by the French Government, independent fif his difficulty with the Cnbinet at Wnshinsi'on. Mr. di Montholon, the sun of Grn. Muiitholon, is said to be named I. is successor. A Precious Trio. Three German rob lers having acquirrd by various ntr cities what amounted to a very valuable bnr,t. ll.ey agreed to divide the spoil and to retire from so dangerous a vocation. M ben the day which they fal ap;oin!ed for this purpose arrived, one of Ihem was dis patched to a neighboring loan to purchase provisions for their last carousal. The other two secretly agreed to murder him on bis return, lhat they miolii coine in fur hnlf the plunder, iustead of a third. They did so. Hut the murdered man was a clo ser calculator even than his assassins, for he had previously poisoned a part of ihe provisions, that he might appropriate to himself the whole of the spoil. The prec ious triumvirate were found dead together s signal instance thtit nothing is so blind and suicidal as ihe selfishness of vice. Cohort. The News from Europe, is dull as ashes after the hot streams of lava which for eighteen months we have seen poured from the revolutionary volcano. Of the heroic Kossuth and his compeers. Bern, Dembinski and ihe rest we hear nothing; and can only hope lhat last week's report that some oflhem had escaped may prove true of all. Gorgcy has beeu par doned by the Austrian Emperor. This is not in his favor, but it is only of a piece with all ihe circumstances about him since his surrender. The Philadelphia North American says that more than three months ago, an in telligent agent of our Government was 3,- 000 miles on his way to Hungary, with in structions from the President ofihe United States to recognize the Government, in the event of one being established, and to wel come her first into the family of nations. Nearly all the childi en.and many adults, in Doylestow n, Bucks county, Pa., and vi. cinity, have had the sore throat, a disease that has slain hundreds. It is, however, easily managed if promptly and properly treated Dr. Elendrie, we understand, has treated nearly two hundred cases. It man ifests itst'lfs in the form ol ulcers in the throat, with little or no sickness for sever al days ; but if not soon attended to.is gen erally fatal. We learn that dispatches went forward by the last steamer, removing Mr. Robert Walsh liom the office of U. S. Consul at Paris, which he has held for some eight years past. Mr. Walsh, therefore, has been removed mainly because his fenti ments and sympathies in regard to the struggles for popular rights and Republi can institutions in Europe, are not in har mony with those of Ge n. Taylor and his Cubinet. The North Branch Canal. We under stand that Mr. Foster is about to proceed to the North Branch forthwith, and pre pare a portion of the woik for a letting, so that the work will probably be commenced in the course of the next two months.

It is not loo early to remind the people of the necessity of being assessed ten days before the diction. The election takes place on Tuesday, the 0th of October. Bear it in mind, and attend to this impor tant duty in time. Each one of you should examine the list of voters put up in your respective election districts, by your as sessors, and if your name is not ihere, have yourselves assessed immediately lor if you are not assessed at least ten days before the election, or have not paid a State or County tax within two years past, you will lose your votes. The'Center county Conferees, instructed for Dr Samuel Strohecker for Senator, did not concur w ith the other counties in the nomination of Gen. Packer as the Demo cratic candidate. The Whigs have made no nomination, but will probably support an Independent Tariff candidate. The Whigs of Columbia county have nominated Benj. P.
