DEAR C.—After traveling over theie moun

me4h perpendicular; but at an "angle of about
forty-five degrees. l'hOown is situated on the

enattering of the Digger Indian or the coarse
grunting ,of the grizzly bear, the

machinery and the ringing of pick-axes and

.• a'The advice and example herein-set forth
(says the linielterbtelter) are from the pen of
an old and genial' friend, who 'Allots, and
and doss, precisely what. he describes:
Toil not for fame or a sounding name,
- Strive not for ,wealth nor power; '
Whose clings to 'these faithless things
Is cheated every hour.
I'd spend my life away from strife,
With my wife and children dear;
I'd have a cot in a sheltered spot,
And a pleasant neighbor near..
work each day in a quiet way;
I would read, and write and talk;
And I'd sometimes ride, by the river's side
Or enjoy an evening walk,
I'd do what good soe'er I could,
RegardleSsof praise or blame;
And when at last my days are past,
Have any children do the same.
DEPARTED BLESSINGS. -•
It is often said, and :with groat truth, that
we raVelrperoeive tho.value of our blessings
till they,are taken from us. Theprecimisness
of health is seldom realized till disease and
languor invade our frame. ' The common com
forts :of life are scarcely thoughy of with
grateful -feelings until we
. nro' denied them.
Then wo sigh fur their return, and enjoy their
recovery with a relish unknown before.
Above all, never do we appreciate friends
and relatives as when they, have taken leave
of us "and gone to the land of spirits. We
have scen•the family bereaved Of - a mother, or
a sister, or wife. -The funeral rites are per
formed and the body is in its resting place be
neath the Sod. Day after day passes but the
gloom is not dispersed. The grief lingers
there ami hanmarentlthe vz/cent_chair.___We
miss her nt the morning meal—lWOMiss her nt
the' evening tire-side. - Every object -reminds
us of her. Here is the book she cherished;
there the - Rower she watched and watered.
The tones of her voice—the beam of her eye,
the sunshine of her countenance, aro ever be
fdre us. Wesigh, but she answers not. We,
long for one little word from her lips, but it
is unbroken. We think of:her.ways, her Vir
tues, of everything but her failings, and we
wonder that we loved her no more while liv
ing; we lament, that we ever grieved and
_wounded one so gentle and so good.' . _
These thou'ghta should lead usto prize those
who love us, While - they aro yet with us, for
be assured,•we Bina mourn bitterly over our
neglect, our harshness, outwrong doing, where
the grave has ebbed over them. -
WHY UORAD UP FOR, OTHERS

to gain our nveiihotid by'tho oweatef our brow.
But wharreason flare we'to presume thet,our

ns now and then one wilt. be, endowed with ex

developing thpMselves ; and if they !laver hare
that opportunity, the harm is not very great

Thi4ds the natural progress.. It is by at
tempting to reach the top at a single leap, that
-so much misery is produced in the world. So
ciety may_aid making..thC laborers virtuous
and happy, by bringing children up to labor
with steadiness, with care and with skill; to
show them how; to do as many'udifill things as
possible,,to.do them all in the best manlier, to .
set them an example iu industry, sobriety,
cleanliness and neatness ; to make all these
habitual to them, so that they never shall, he

DE AC ON BODKINS.
Deacon Bodkins was a good man, but
the righteous, lie-had great trials. The Deacch
arils not only a good man, but he 'liad.a nice
-taste-- as—to--the-- fitness - of ililitS;76ilieifolly
touching the good
.order and decorum of the
church. Now it is well known that, in' ihcic
latter days, there have crept into our church
some very unseemly and scandalous , praqices,
such as one half . the congregation sitting, while
the others rise in time i;Of prayer,; and many of
those who sit and those Who.riso, staring about
as though they were endeavoring to get beyond
the journey of .the fool's eyes. Deacon Bodkins
had a lively sense of the evils of these things,
and (Alen spoke upon the subject in a most feel
ing manner.. - . :
"Deacon,". said neighbor Janes, " speaking
of those unseemly things in church reminds, mu
of ic case which-occurrcd when I was a' school
Wo all pricked up our ears and wero all at

" Well, deacon," said he; 4 lwheni..was sr.

Ah, thought Ito myself, there is Joe Simmons; •
that I don't like ; I'll watch liim„and if I see'
him look off his book, I'll tell on him. It was
not long before I saw Joe look - ell his book, and

" I saw him," was my reply.
" You'did? and warn yone cyea•on'.your book
