The earth hath treasures fair and bright
Deep buried in her caves,
And ocean hideth many a gem,
With his blue curling waves.
Yet not within her bosom dark,
Or 'neath the dashing foam,
Lies there a treasure equalling
A world of love at home.
True sterling happiness end joy
Are not with gold allied ;
Nor can it yield a pleasure like
A merry bright fireside.
I envy not the man who dwells
In stately hall or dome,
If 'mid his splendour he hath not
A world of love at home.
The friends whom time hath proved,sincere,
'Tis they alone can bring
A. sure relief to hearts that dwell
'Neath sorrows heavy wing,
Though care and trouble may be mine,
As down life's path I roam;
I'll heed them not while still I have
A world of love at home.

,to whales, and other big fish,
as well as to tomcods, flounders, scot.
pins, pouts, eels, and other small fry:
"Ye monsters of the bubbling deep,
Your Maker's praises spout ;
Up from the sands ye codlings peep,
And wag your tails about."
There is much truth, if not poetry, in
:he following :
The race is not forever got,
By him who faster runs;
Nor the bat tel to those peo-pel,
That shoot with the longest guns."
The following address to the Sun chimes
very well with the preceding, although of
:Bore modern origin :
"All hail thou glorious Sun!
Bright as a now tin pan!
Thou roundest, fairest, purest source—
Of bread and cheese to man !"
Was it Providence ?
Take, for example, a young girl, breti
delicately in town, shut up in a nursery
;n her childhood—in a boarding•-school
through her youth, never accustomed eith
.critu air or exercise, two things that the
law of God makes essential to health.—
She marries; her strength is inadequate
to the demands upon it. Her beauty
fades early. She languishes through her
hard offices of giving birth to children,
suckling and watching over them, and
dies early. What a strange Provi
dence, that a mother, should be taken, in
the midst of life, from her children I"
Was it Providence 1--No: Providence
had assigned her three-score years and
ten ; a term lung enough to rear her chi'.
'chef), and to see her children's children ;
but she has not obeyed the laws on which
life depends, and of course she has lost it.
A father, too, is cut off in the midst of
Cis days. He is a useful and distinguish.
oil citizen, and eminent in his profession.
A .general buzz rises on every side, of
What a striking Providence!" This
lnan has been in the habit of studying half
the night, of passing his days in his office
and the courts, of eating luxurious din
and drinking various wines. He
has every day violated the laws on which
health depends. Did Providence cut him
oil? The evil rarely ends here. The di
seases of the father are often transmitted;
and a feeble mother rarely leaves behind
tier vigorous children.
It has been customary in some of our
cities for young ladies to walk in thin
::has and delicate stockings in mid-win
ter. A health bloOming young girl, thus
dressed, is a violation of Heaven's laws,
pays the penalty ; a checked circulation,
fever, and death, What a sad
Orovidenee!" exclaims her friends. Was
it Providence, or her own folly
UPETaIQ 9 aa,
A beautiful young bride goes, night af•
ter night, to parties made in honor of her
marriage. She has a slightly sore throat►
perhaps, and the weather is inclement ;
but she must wear her neck and arms
bare ; for whoever saw a bride in a close
evening dress? She is consequently
seized with intimation of the lungs, and
the grave receives her before her bridal
days are over. " What a Providence?"
exclaims the world. "Cut oil in the
midst of happiness and hope!" Alas! did
she not cut the thread of life herself?
A girl in the country exposed to our
changeful climate, gets a new bonnet in
stead of a flannel garment. A rheuma
tism is the consequence. Should the girl
sit down tranquil ly with the idea that
Providence has sent the rheumatism upon
her, or should she charge it on her vani
ty, and avoid the folly in future?
Look, my young friends, at the mass of
diseases that are incurred by intemper
ance in eating or in drinking, or iri study,
or in business; often by neglect of e::er•
cise, cleanliness, pure air: by indiscreet
dressing, tight laciog, &c., am] all is qui
etly imputed to Providence! Is there not
impiety as well as ignorance in this ?
Were the physical law strictly observed
from generation to generation, there would
be an end to the frightful diseases that cut
life short, and of the long list of maladies
that make life a torment or a trial. It is
the opinion of those who best understand
the physical system, that this wonderful
machine, the body, this "goodly temple,"
would gradually decay, and men would
die as if falling asleep.
Mr. Geo. Golding, a noted bird fancier,
who is well known in State street, having
been over twenty years messenger of the
New England Marine Insurance office,
was much afflicted last summer by the sud
den death of his wife. For many years
he has also suffered severely from the ef
fects of rheumatism, so much so as fre
quently to be confined for months to his
chamber. But amid all his afflictions he
seemed to derive great pleasure from
rearing a large family of canaries. Fre
quently, when he has been so rocked with
pain as to be unable to stand upright, he
has scrambled out of bed on his hands and
I knees seated himself by the cages, and
whistled and talked to his 'little minstrels,'
as he calls them, fur hours; and they, in
their turn, piping their shrillest notes, or
sporting from perch to perch, or eating
out of his hand.
Every bird had its name, and so per
fectly were they trained that nearly all
of them knew when he called 'them ; and
their names, ton, had each its meaning or
association, something in the oriential
style. One would be named "Clear
Voice,! another Little Red Ritlint,
Hood," a third 1. Weeping Willow," Ste:
So perfect was the sympathy between
them, that he would open the doors o f the
cages, then stretch himself on tho floor of
his chamber, and call them to him by name,
and, in a few minutes they woo Id cluster
around him, eat out of his mouth, whistle
as he spoke to them, nestle in his bosom,
and play a great variety of other interest
ing antics, such as birds only can play.
Last Tuesday, Mr. Golding though
that the chamber was too cold for his
feathered family, and in a luckless hour,
he placed a charcoal furnace in the room
for the purpose of warming it. Half an
hour afterwards he visited the room, but
who can describe the old man's agony,
when he beheld the greater part of the
darlings in which all his affections seem
ed to centre, lying dead on the bottoms
of their cages "Oh, my God !" he ex
claimed "all my little ones gone—w;►at
have I done to deserve this?" and he sank
on the floor, burying his face in his hands.
His daughter came immediately to his as
sistance, removed the furnace, threw the
windows open, and succeeded by these
means in preserving twenty birds. lie
had fifty in all, and lost thirty of them.
Nearly an hour elapsed before the old
man could mustar courage to attend to the
wants of the living members of Ina family
and remove the dead ones. Slowly awl
sorrowfully he opened the doors of the
cages, the tears the mobile streaming down
his aged cheeks—and sad and plaintive
were the words he uttered as he separa
ted the de'att from the living.
The first dead one he pressed to his
lips and kissed. again and again, and in a
tone of deep sorrow he commenced reci
ting its history. "Thou, my sweet little
• Morning Star,' were the first to tell me
that the n , ght was,gone, and the daylight
near, but no more shall I hear thy voice—
it is hushed for ever, and my poor hear t.
is Mutest broken. And Ilion too:Ay
"Evening Star," he continued wessing
another to his lips, "why art thou gone?"
Why didst thou leave the old man; he
was kind to thee, he used to kiss tbee
and feet! thee from I.i4iouth, and listen
with delight to' thy calm sweet notes, as
they sang the sun beneath the sea. My
Morning and Evening Star are both set,
and I will soon follow them.
fie,could proceed no farther, but again
sank on the floor, and cried as if his heart
would break. Although the birds, to hit)
were a great pecuniary loss, say one hun
dred and fifty dollars, yet he not once al
luded to them in that sense, and we are
satisfied that if he had ten times that
amount he would freely have given it all
if by doing so he could have restored them
to life. So warmly is he attached to them
still, that he contemplates having them
stalled, that he may gaze on them while
he lives.—Boston Tranocript.
