Who lags for (head of daily work,
And his appointed task would shirk,
Commits a folly and a crime:
A soulless slave—
A paltry knave—
A clog upon the wheel of Time.
With work to do, and store of health,
The man's unworthy to he free,
Who will not give,
That he may live,
His daily toil for daily fee.
No ! Let us work! We only ask
Reward proportioned to our task;
Wo have no quarrel with the great
No feud with tank— , .
With mill or bank—
No envy of a lard's estate,
If we can earn sufficient store
To satisfy our daily need;
And can retain
For ago and pain,
A fraction, we are rich indeed.
No dread of toil have we or ours;
We know our worth, and weigh our powers t
The more we work the more Win ;
Success to Trade!
Success to Spode!
And to the corn that's coming in!
And joy to him, who o'er his task
Remember's toil is• Nature's plan;
Who, working, thinks.—
And never sinks
liie independence es a man !
Who only asks for humble wealth,
Enough for competence and health ;
And leisure when his work is done,
To read his book
By chimney nook,
Or stroll at setting sun,.
Who toils as every man should toil
For fair reward, erect and free:
These are the men—
The best of men—
These are the men we mean to be!
I was once called upon in my senior
year to watch with an insane student.
It had snowed all day, but the sun had
set with a red rift in the clouds, and the
face of the sky was swept in an hour
perfectly clear. The all-glorious arch
of heaven was a mass of sparkling stars.
Greyling slept, and I, wearied of the
cold philosophy of the Latin poets, took
to my " Book of Martyrs."
It was a description in the harrowing
faithfulness of the language of olden
times, painting almost the articulate
groans of an impaled christian.
The walnut faggots had burnt to a
bed of bright coals, and I sat gazing in
to it, totally unable to shake off the fear
ful incubus from my breast. The mar
tyr was there—on the very hearth—
with the stakes scornfully crossed on
his body ; and as the large coals cracked
asunder and revealed the brightness
within, I seemed to follow the nerve rend
ing instrument from hip to shoulder, and
suffered with him pang for pang, as if
the burning redness were the pools of his
fevered blood.
" Aha !"
It struck on the ear like the cry of an
exulting fiend.
I shrunk into the chair as the awful
cry was repeated, and looked slowly and
with difficult courage over my shoulder.
A• single fierce eye was fixed upon me
from the mass of bed clothes, and, for
a moment, the relief from the fear of
some supernatural presence was like
water to a parched tongue. I sank back
relieved into the chair.
There was a rustling immediately in
the bed, and starting again. I found the
wild eyes of my patient fixed steadfast.
ly upon me. He was creeping steadily
out of bed: his bare foot touched the
floor, and his toes worked upon it as if
he were feeling his strength, and, in a
moment, ho stood upright on his feet,
and with head forward and his pale face
livid with rage, stepped towards me.—
I looked to the door, he observed the
glance, and in the next instant he sprang
over the bed, turned the key, and dashed
it furiously through the window.
" Now," said lie.
"Grayling!" said I.
I had heard that a calm and fixed gaze
would control a madman, and with a
most difficult exertion I met his lower
ing eye, and we stood looking at each
other for a full minute like men of mar
" Why have you left your bed I" I
mildly said.
" To kill you," was the appalling an
swer ; and, in another moment the light
stand was swept from between us, and
he struck me down with a blow that
would have felled a giant. Naked as he
was, I had no hold upon him, even if in
muscular force I had been his match,
and without a minute's struggle I yield
ed; for resistance was vain. His knee
was upon my breast, and his left hand
in n►y hair ; and he scorned by the trein ,
ulousness of his clutch to be hesitating
whether he should dash out my brains
on the hearth. I could scarce breathe
with his weight upon my chest, but I
tried with the broken words I could corn
mand, to move his pity. He laughed as
only a maniac can, and placed his hand
on my throat. Oh, God ! I shall never
forget the fiendish deliberation with
which he closed those feverish fingersl
"Greyling, for God's sake, Greylingl"
" Die, curse you !"
In the agony of suffocation I struck
out my arm and almost buried it in the
fire on the hearth. With an expiring I
' thought I grasped a, handful of red hot
coals, and with my remaining strength
pressed them against his side.
" Thank God !" I exclaimed with the
first breath, as my eves recovered from
their sickness, and I looked upon the
familiar objects of the Chamber once
The madman sat crouched like a whip
ped dog in the farthest corner of the
room, gibbering and moaning with his
hands upon his burnt side. I - felt that I
had escaped by a miracle.
The door was locked, and in dread of
another attack, I threw up the window,
and to my unutterable joy, the figure of
a man was visible upon the snow near
the out-buildings of the college. It was
a charity student who had risen before

Who is the author of the following we
know not. It was found in an old news
paper that looked as if it was printed
when Adam was a boy : _
Sambo was a slave to a master who
was constitutionally addicted to lying.
Sambo being strongly devoted to his
master, had by dint of long practice,
made himself an adept in giving plausi
bility to his master's largest stories.
One day when the master was enter
taining his guests in his customary man
ner among other marvellous facts, he re
lated an incident which took place in one
of his hunting excursions.
" I fired at a buck," said he, "at one
hundred yards distance, & the ball pass
ed through his left hind foot, and through
his head: just back of his ear."
This evidently producing some little
doubt in the minds of his guests, he call
ed upon Sambo to corroborate him.
" Yes, massa i " said the almost con
founded slave, after a moment's . hesita
tion, "me see de ball hit 'im. Jes as
massa lif up de gun to he eye, de buck
lif up him foot to scratch him ear, an
massa's ball go through him foot an'
head at de same time."
The guests were perfectly satisfied
with Sambo's explanation, and swallow
ed the whole without further hesitation;
but when his guests were gone, Sambo
ventured upon his master's good humor
so far as to remonstrate.
"For mighty sake, massa, when you
tell a nudder sich a big lie, don't put urn
so far apart; me hab deblish hard work
for get um together."
A New Fashioned hat.
The Baltimore Clipper says :—A few
days since, a passenger in one of our
railroad cars, having paid his devoirs to
Bacchus too earnestly, fell into a doze
on his seat. In his dodging to and fro,
his hat fell oft; when he commenced
groping on the floor for it. Unfortu
nately his hand came in contact with a
spittoon, plentifully supplied with to
bacco juice. Mistaking this for his hat,
after considerable difficulty, he succeed
ed in grasping and raising it, when he
turned the whole contents on the crown
of his head, supposing that he was re
placing his hat. The unsavory liquid,
and the universal roar of laughter which
ensued, awoke the inebriate to con
sciousness, when he shook the spittoon
from his head, and cried out in a rage,
" Who the d—l spit tobacco juice in
my face—none of your tricks upon tra
vellers." The scene was highly amus
ing, and should be lithographed for the
benefit of those who " rise up early in
the morning to take strong drink."

Anecdote of Dr. Nott, of Union College.
On the evening preceding Thanksgiv
ing, not many years ago, two students
left the Colleges, with the most foul in-'
tent of procuring some of the Doctor's
fine fat chickens that roosted in a tree
adjoining his house. When they ar
rived at the spot one ascended the tree,
while the other stood with a bag ready
to receive the plunder. It so happened
that the doctor himself had just left his
house, with the view of securing the
same chickens for his Thanksgiving din
ner, The rogue under the tree hearing
some one approaching, immediately stole
away, without notifying his companion,
among the branches. The Doctor came
up silently, and was immediately salu
ted from above as follows: "Are you
ready 1"
" Yes," responded the Doctor, dissem
bling his voice as much possible.
The other immediately laying hand on
the old rooster, exclaimed—" Here's old
Prex, will you have him V'
' "Pass him along," was the reply,and
he was soon in the Doctor's bag.
" Here's Alarm Prex," said the all
unconscious student, grabbing a fine old
hen, "will you have her 1"
"Yes," again responded the Doctor.
"Here's son John, will you have himl
Here's daughter Sal, take her," and so
on, until he had gone regularly through
naming chickens after the Doctor's fa
The old man then walked off in one
direction with the plunder, while the
student, well satisfied with his night's
work, came down, and streaked it for
the colleges. Great was his astonish
ment to learn from his companion, that
he had not got any chickens, and if he
gave them to any one, it must have been
to Dr. Nott.
Expulsion, fines and disgrace, were
uppermost in their thoughts, until the'
next forenoon, when both received a po
lite invitation from their President, re
questing the presence of their company
to a Thanksgiving dinner. To decline
was impossible ; so with hearts full of
anxiety for the result, they wended their
way to the house, where they were pleas
antly received by the old gentleman, and
with a large party were soon seated a
round the festive board. After asking
a blessing, the Doctor rose from his seat,
and taking the carving knife, turned with
a smile to the rogues, and said—" Young
gentlemen, here's old Prex,. and Marin
Prex, son John, and daughter Sal," at
the same time touching successively the
respective chickens—. to which shall I

The mortification of his students may
be imagined.
