But a pi•etty young maid he'l! meet in his track,
And she'll curtsy and smiletill be turns his back,
„For she'll frigh 'it him off with a wonderful

A sweet little maid is she.
"Young Spring is a frolicsome girl, I not,
Too full of her fun for me,"
Said Winter, "she tears the clothes frouviny
And causes the streamlet's prison to crack,
And dries up the path end the slippery track—
So unping,and playful is she.
Young Spring comes on with a beautiful grace,
But not very shy is she ;
For she cracks her,jolces in old Winter's face,
And kisses his cheeks as' Ile flies apace,
While she melts the tears in his sturdy face—
A: pert young lass is she.

A gay little miss is'she ;

And touches the lovelies notes of song,
But gay as she is, she never thought wrong,

And sally forth with a cheerful laugh,

This Spring is a coquetting girl, I fear,
For her lovers are many I see,
She kisses their cheeks and dries up their tears,
And makes an end of their chilling fears,
While they pour her listening oars;
For very bewitching is she.

The Spanish call proverbs pegurnos cvangelioa
gospels;' Mr. Trench has made
use of some of them as' texts from which to
preach sermons, rather tiresome and uommon
place. But his hook is on the whole, enter
'tining. He has brought together many rare
proverbs, and although he merely skims over
his subjects, his work may serve at least as a
fingLr-post to point out to others a direction
in which they may find amusement and profit
It would, indeed, 'be a curipus subject of re
search to investigate, not the date of proverbs
—for most of them aro antediluvian, and
floated about in the ark in the minds of Noah
and his children—but the time when they
assumed their present dress, Mid then, as
Torriano has done in his Italian collection, to
arrange the'm iu classes according to the key ,
idea of each.
• ' What wondetful monuments of antiquity
arc these'pithy sayings, in which tit!: experi
ence of mankind, of their rellltion to nature,
to each other, and to God, is recorded—these
"winged words," which have flown safely over
the black abyss of time, in which so much
human knowledge has been engulphed—and
are now brisk and Gill of life as ever, hover
ing about the lips of men.
Mr. Trench is much exercised to define a
proverb satisfactorily. An adage is ad agen:,,
duo apta—apt for notion and use. Maxims
are maxima, the best sayings. But a proverb
whatiz it? It is both, and something more
A proverb is the " wisdom of many," ex
pressed so well by the wit of one that the
rest of- mankind seek fur no other mode of
--rendering the thought, Mit use this one pro
eerbo as if it were a word, If it be not in
this every day use, we may have an excellent
adage, aphoism, njaaim , but no proverb.—
There is nnother,dequi'slte which we think ,
Mr. Trench has overlooked. Proverbs should
have no known parents. They are foundlings
of wit. A quotation may be us hackneyed as
" how &ye do," but it remains a quotation
still. Some one has well said that three things
go to' the making 'up of a proverb : shortness,
souse and salt. If rhyme and nl,lite•ation do
not come utider.the head of "salt," they may
certainly bo added as a great assistance. The
ear likes to be pleased as" well as the mind.
How the jingle completes some of-our compact
and salted English Proverbs, and fixes them
in the memory ; such as, " Harm watch, harm
catch ;" "No pains, no gains ;" or its' proth
er, "No sweat, no sweet ; " Haste makes
waste ;" "Wits gees a borrowing, goes a sor
rowing," and this .one, known to writing mas
ters "Little strokes fell great oaks." " Out of
debt, out of danger ;" "East' west, home hi
best ; " Forewarned, forearmed."
proverbs ore found in many languages, "Qui
}wend, cc ? end " is-a gtiod rhyme and a short
-saying; but the German -tt Volt, WV' is
shorter—in fiict the shortest known proverb.
It illustrates the connection between, fullnalis
and folly, great prosperity and insane pride.'
The Italians -say 44 Tradudlori, traditori"—
translators ate traitors. On this theme, St.
Jeroine made a holy, pun. He complained
that the Latin versions .of the Cirek Testa
ment,.eurrentin the church in his (lu, were
too many of- them not versions but evereioties:
The medieval Latin furnishes ashortrhyming
proverb, " Qualms vita, finis i(a.'t Even in
Greek, limy said ,, "rathemala
Idalhcmaia "
Sufferings are•teachers.
If Mr. Trench has preached fogyish homi
lies from proverbial trxts, it ie the' fault of
Mr. Trench and not thelittle gospels.' Many
of them Sidemen himself might .have noted
down with satisfaction, 8 . 0 full are they of,
truth and souni teaching. pore is a lesson

%Mr" Apd this one, which pboy-Rioltard
111 o f bri of `-lAiikTbom
emitted in his almanao: " The groat is ill
saved which ehames its master." The Ger
mans tell us " One foe is too many, a hundred
friends are too few." The Persians say grace
fully, " Speech is Biliwn, silence is golden."
But. the blunt Italian proverb, Silence was
never written down," is more effective 'than
tile oriental poetry. Not more effective, how.
ever, 'than' this other of the some people,
which is highly imaginative " Time is an
inaliennble file ",--ne unpleasant ns
Here is a wise saying of the Persians: " Of
four things every man hoe more than he
knows—of sin, of debts, of years, and of
foes." A warning from the Turkish : "Curses
like chickens, always come home to roost."
One still more solemn from the Greek: " The
mill of God grtrids,late, but grinds to powder."
Another Greek' selmon, in On Same vein, is
quoted by Emmerson "The dice of God are
always leaded." "When the Devil cannot
come he 'will send," the 'Germans say with
truth, and the Italians. with equal truth and
more humor: " lie bath need of a long spoon
that eats with the Devil." "There is no worse'
robber than' bad book." This is Italian too,
and may serve, if they like it, as a motto for
the getteraup of cheap publications.
St. Bernnrd made a curious use of a prov,
orb qn the angels; wishing to show a priori
the extreme probability of their eltive .minis
try in the service of men, lie quotes the Latin
proverb, Qui me amen% amat et canton meum,
and argues thus "We are the dogs under
Christ's table ; the angels love him, therefore
they love us."
Lord Bacon has written, as eierybedy knows,
that the geninS, wit, and spirit of a nation nro
discovered in its proverbs. Following the
hint, Mr. Trench devotes a chapter to this ,
aspect of proverbs— but, as in the rest of his
book, be only gives us a glimpse of the sub-
ject, sufficient to show what a field of interest
ing criticism was before him. In the_genuine
Roman proverbs, which .are few in number,
he perceives a practical Inisiness-like sense.
They bear Witness to the interests in agricul
ture which distinguished the old Italians. For
instance, we have from Cato: What is not
needed is dear at a ffirtbing," n proverb after
Poor Richard's own heart. And this - acute
proverb has a
of the farm, '• men cut
broad thongs another man's leather."
The Spaniards have nn enormous stock of
proverbs, as every reader of the picaresque
noels has noticed. Juan Triarte, fbeir great
collector, brought together about. thirty thou
- sand. Mr. Trench remarks in them "keen
good sense, stately humor, and 'a chivalrous
' spirit," and p ives us. a specimen: "When
thou scoot thy house in fltmesoi pproach and
- warm thyself by it." The English - Would
havti said, " approach and put it out." How
well they sneer at their own weakness, iwtheir
famous saying, Cosas de Espana, for ; any ab
surd piece of carelessness or neglect; ns for
instance, when Charles the Third's army
marched against Portugal,' and reached the
frontier before it was discovered that they had
brought no powder. " TheTtalian proverbs,"
says Mr. d'israeli, " have taken a tinge from
their deep and politic genius, and their wisdom
seems wholly concentrated in their personal
interests. I think every tenth - N.o%mb in an
Italian collection, is some cynical or selfish
maxim—a t book of the world for' worlfilings."
Oar readers will remember Dr. • Ilic'eabocea
and his fund of Machiavellian proverbs in
Dulwer's last novel. There is no denying the
the truth of these sometimes sly and some
times bitter maxims. They are eorrect views
of one side of human nature, and they show'
on which side of human nature they haws
looked. " The river past, the saint mocked,"
a' foreign relation of our " When the devil was
sick, &c." "When rogues go into procession,
the devil holds the cross." "If thou suffer a
calf to be laid cn thee, within a little they will.
clap on the cow." "Who paints me before
blackens me behind." " Every man draws the
water to his own miil." Hero is a, really
vicious one which the old German divine might
have included Wilds' wen lc, Ungodly Proverbs
and their Refutation. " A sin concealed is
- half forgiven." "If the monkey reigns,
dance before him," is the tone
- of the East and
of Egypt, when the ono man-poiver is Abso
lute. "Rica the hand which thou mast not
bite,." shows even more clearly its origin in
the land of servility, and selfishness, and re
venge. Do no good and thou shalt
evil," is of Asiatic descent, but it sounds not
unlike M. de Fontenelle.
Other Proverbs show 'their nationality by
some local coloring or turn of phrase, as the
Turkish, "Death is a black camel which kneels
at every man's gate," and the English, "A
fair wife and - a frontier castle breed quarrels,"
evidently is older than the union of - the two
crowns. •
Many proverbs nro found in every language
in different dreek 'hut identical in meaning.—
" Coals to Newcastle," is a).remarkable in
stance. The Greas said : " Owle to Athens."
The Rabbis: "Enchantments to Egypt"—
The Persians: "Pepper to Ilindostan," and
the Medisevals: " Indulgence to Rome." Our
old, friend.--" Ono must not look a gift-horse
n 'the mouth," is used by Jerome, a father Of
the fourth century, who replied tartly to a
criticism on writings of his, that they were a
voluntary offering on .his port, and quoted the
provetb. Ne nlso end it in the rhymed latin
proverb of the .middle ages. "Si :quit' dat.
munos. ne qua^re in dintibus annoy.,'? "Liars
should have good memories," is also cited_ as
an Old proverb by Jerome.

With their etymology acid,anciont signification,

Pellets of Wit. "If you have 'offended a

Among uneducated people, thought end
speech are glairto avail themselves of these
muscular little sayings. To the 'ignorant,
proverbs ore indeed lessons-n lex non acripta
for every-day life. And; as in the case of the
common law, very often sad misrepresentations
of n rule occur. How many selfish people
have fortified their unwillingness to do fOr
others, by that excellent 'proverb, "Charity
begins at homer Men of education seldom
express themselves in proverbs. It is not
considered well-bred . to do so, 'Proverbs aro
of the same kindred as slang; and although
the relationship is distant, a kind of family
likeness is often perceptible. .Neiertheless,
an occasional proverb, well -applied, is never
out of place. And often: in a moment of un
certainty as to what course of conduct we
shall pursue, some " little gospel" flashes a
cross the mind, and instantly' decides the
George Herbert, under the title of l'Jacqur
Prudentuni," made a collection of about 100
proverbs.' Herbert died in 1632. It is 'sing
ular that in a collection cd — tho seventeenth
century, among hundreds in present use su h
pruverbS as, "Where there's a will there's
a way ;" " A piece for everything, and every
thing in its place;" "Needs m'ast go when
the devil drives," and Tell the truth_ end
shame the devil,' should not be found. Quite
a number of poor Eicher:Ps pf2verbs occur
there-; for . instance, Silks and iiitins put out
the kitchen fire."
Some of Herbert's are worth minting: "lie
begins to die, that quits his 'deSii•es." "Ito
pulls with a long rope that waits for another's
death." " A lion's skin is Inter elleap."—
•',He that comes of a hen must serape." "I
wept when I was. born, and every day shown
why." "A woman and a glass lire ever in
danger." "A married man turns his staff
into a stoke." "A fool knows * more in his
house, than a wise man ip another's".
ng worthy of all commendation " God comes
o see without a ,bell." This reminds us of
the Latin, ^ The feet of the avenging deities
are shod with wool." And there is one which'
requires to be taken ivith many grains of ex
planation " Ito wrongs not an old man that
steals his supper from him." About this loot
there can be no doubt, in your own place
and no ono can mako you rise."—Evening

This is the promise of the advertisement of
the now route from Philadelphia to Pittsberg,
and I believe it is fulfilled every dny. What
that journey has been, I have some opportuni
ty of knowing from a manuscript journal in
my, possession, kept by Matthew Clarkson,
Esq., in the year 1766. Mr. Clarkson was a
merchant of Philadelphia—foi several years
Mayor of that city—and appears to have gone
westward on behalf of some company with
,whichlre was connected, whose obpct was to
carry on trade between Philadelphia and the
Mississippi. He set out on horseback, with a
servant, August 6, 1766. Oaths first day he
met wagons loaded with skins coming from
the West, and overtook others "loaded with
pork going for the King's - rige to Fort Pitt"--
the name of the
-settlement Which the English
gave it in theplace of,Du 6esne,and,,which
wits afterwards changed to Pittsburg lie
lodged at "The Ship," thirty-five miles from
The next day (Aug. 7) ho dined at " The
Duke of Cumberland," and reached Lancaster
evening. On the Bth crossed- the Sus=
. quell:won at Wiight's Ferry, and reached
York. On the 9th- crossed ConeWaga creek,
and arrived at Carlisle, where he rested till
the 12th, when he resumed his journey with a
stronger horse, dined at Shippensburg, and
lodged seven miles further on. On the 13th,
at the ''Burnt Cabins," he overtook thirty-two
horse - loads of flour on the way to Fort Pitt,
and mentions cattle going the same direction,
and 3 "3kins" coming eastward. "This day's
journey [thirty-four miles] her been extreme
ly tedious and fatiguing; the road, except the
first ten miles, was nothing hut rills, moun
tains and stones, until you pass the Burnt
Cabins, when it is tolerable, but hilly."
August 14th —From Littleton took break
fast at the foot of Sideling hill ;. dined at the
crossings of- the Juniata; lOdged at Bedford.
Here he i stunned for a day, and purchased an
interest fin the tracts, of land in Cumberland
valley, Danning's creek and Woodcock valley,
mostly in the vicinity of Bedford, containing
in all eighteen hundred acres, for one-half of
which he paid £OO, ($440.)
August 16th.— , -At the foot of the Alleghen
ies, he found an encampment of Indians, un
der the command of Capt. Green, who were
engaged in gathering whortleberries. Lodged
at Stony creek. Next day dined'at Ligonier,
and lodged at the twelve-mile run.
18th.—To Brushy run, Turtle creek, and
re lobed Port Pitt just after dark..
Thus he got "through in ten days," without
counting stoppages, happily without being'
tantalized, as ho jogged along under a hot
sun, with n fore-knowledge that his grand
children would make the same journey "Hire'
in 10 hours." His journal Mentions, indeed,
a "conductor of the trail," but it was cf Con
estoga wagons, not of cars and crates.
When ho reached the embryo 'city of - Smoke,
he found no sumptuous hotels inviting him to
repose. Upon his arrival, he says: ",1 was
stored away in a small crib, in blankets, - in
company with flees and bugs." He took a
walk to "the ship yard ; found four boats fin-: .
billed and in the water, and four more on the
stocks; business goirg on briskly." Palmy
days, those, in Pittsburg; said boats being
probably bateenux, not much greater than sue!
as aro now slung at the stern of the steam
iiiidistars that lie or ply by hundreds in ha
-fl say
The fort was under the command of Major
Murray, who gave Mr. Clarkson his lodging
in the barracks; but on account of the mis
erable condition of accommodations for board
ing, he usually made his meals on 'bread and
milk at the store." The officers of the gar
rison were Capt. Belnenvis. Lieutenants Mc-
Coy, Mclntish, C. and C. Crnnt, and Hall.—
Dr. Murdock and Rev. Mr. McCleggan, chap
lains, who preach alternately in Erse (Scotch)
and English.
In en afternoon's ride from Fort Pitt he
found an Indian settlement of Mingoes. He
mentions the arrival of a Seneca chief, who
had been to the Illinois, and brouglit from
that barbarous region, over his own post track,
a pacifet of letters to. the civilized cast, from
the commander at Fort Chartres, near thq
present St. Louis. The was June
'21. , The news of the day was that provision
was scarce and dear. Indian flour being at 6
shillings per hundred; ordinary buffalo meat
at 4 shillings .per pound. "The French on
opposite side of the river in plenty." The
mail from Fort Pitt was sent monthly by
sokliers to Shippensburg, which MB the near-'
est pcist office. Mr. C; mentions the breaking
of his thermometer us an irreparable loss.—
In these days it'ivould probably be accounted
too small an article for the great blasts of
the glass furnaces to condescend to make.—
" No ropes for painters here ;. and no pros
pect of being able to supply this defect.'
• Mr. Clarkson was engaged in loading boats
'at Fort Pitt to transport merchandise down
the Ohio to Fort Chartres, on the Mississippi.
He engaged a Seneca chief to accompany him;
probably as a guide, interpreter, and protec
tor through the tribes along the river,.some
of whom were not in a friendly state. •Bofore
oontienting to • Kaytishuta said "he'muit
go • and see' his famili , at the White' Mingo
town and the warriors of all parts of Ma na
tion, and know holythings stood there. Nor
this purpose he wanted a couple of bottles of
rum:" This article was not so easily obtained
'in Pittsburg as it is now.. +' Sixteen kegs 'of
spirits arrived on pack horses."' On the 8d of
Eloptember the wagons arrived , from the ()apt

'tiottts. The Indianand;aeompanion were to

A, momoi•apliun male at Fort Chartres says,
"the boat; from Ntiw''Orleane of the largest

to 24 men, who Italie about 900 livree each.
Three months are" accounted a good passage.
A hogshead of claret on freight pays 800 li

by romembering -that the

Trout fishing is at the best while the lilac
is in flower, and after the'oldcr has come into
flower it begins to decline ; ,this holds good in
all latitudes where the Trout is to be found,
and where the lilac and elder bloom. During
the month of April, trout may be angled - to
nt all times of the day, from sunrise to sunset,
with nearly the same chances of success; but,
as the season, advances, and the heat 'and
brightness of the sun's rays become more in
tense, while the water gradually .becomes
smaller , tied clearer, the best time is from
dawn till about nine in the morning, and from
four in the afternoon till sunset.
,By far the
most pleasant mods of angling for trout is
with the-67 - and we may here observe that
ths fly which will, tempt trout to.rise in-April,-
loses none of its seductive properties as the
season advances. It is - generally observed
that trout do not take the fly freely either in
gloomy weather, or when the sun shines
bright. April weather—an alternation of sun
shine and cloud, with a moderate southwest
breeze gently rippling the surface of the '
stream—is the most favorable for the fly fisher
all seasons of the year." In April; and
in early spring generally, trout are more die
•pcsed to rise at the fly about midday, than
when the season more advanced. At the
latter period, they are more inclined to take
the worm about Mid-day, more especially in
streamy places, just 'above the liead of a pool,
'when the water is clearing after a fall of rain.
This fish has ever been the object of the an
glees art.. In the very name of trout angling
there is magic; and the practised angler en
joys no sport with so keen a relish, as trailing

An account was given a short, time ago,_ of
.we men and a boy having been buried six
days and six nights in a marl pit at Beretta
ville, in the department of the Seine Inferi
eure, and then rescued. A narration of the
affair, derived'from the sufferers, is now given
in a Rouen paper. During the whole of that
time they were without food, without water,
Without light,-and almost without clothes ; and ,
they wore in such a confined place; that, with
the exception of the boy; they could not stand
upright. Boltard, the eldest man, declares •
that during the whole time he did not sleep
mire than two hours ; but his two oompan- r ,
ions, and especially the younger, slept more.
They slept b'ack to book. They felt no huti
ger, and Boitard says that even if they hod
provisions they would not have touched them;
'but they experienced great, thirst.
On the fourth day they found a little water
thick with 'marl, by digging into .the bottom -
of the pit. It was this water probably which
preserved, their strength. At first they.heard
tie noise of the pickaxes and °spades above
nein ; but during the last ,three..idays their.
breathing was so loud, as to prevent it' from
retching them, and this circumstance natural
ly increased their agony of mind ; they also
feared the miners were digging in a wrongdi;
rection. Ono of thSefl MAL fifty' chemiCal

of them, liottarOWas able to shed tears and
when to did so, the boy consoled him by MIL
log him that they weresure to be, reseued,—.
The moment a breath of air reached them,
they fainted, but after a while recovered.—

was, " Clive me a pinch of snuff!!! and he took
