    To Boys and Girls.
Never tell a lie, or half or quarter of
a lie. Many boys who know well enough
what n sneaking dirty thing it is to lie,
will yet twist the truth, or.deceive a lit
tle bit. This is about as bad, and a
good deal more cowardly, than a plump
falsehood. If a boy does something
wrong, either through ignorance, care
lessness or accident, and then tells one
half truth and one half lie about it, he
might almost as well have told the full
untruth that he did'nt do it at all. Now
see how the spirited, manly, true-heart;
ed, clear-tongued boy will do, after
an error : he resolutely determines to
acknowledge it, without being afraid of
any body's anger—to tell it just
aa it was. I never in my life knew
any one to be injured by telling the
truth in this way'; but I have seen many
a boy, and man too, who was looked
upon with contempt, and thought poor
ly of, because he would tell sneaking
lies, or half lies. The worst sort of
untruths—those which are deliberately
made up—stories told about people, or
little stories magnified into big ones—
prove the teller of them to be a worth
less, impure and mean person.
The liar is indeed despicable both to
God and man. On the other hand,
nothing is more beautiful than a strict
ly truth telling young person—who nev- -
er varies from the truth—who is open,
candid and above deceit. To become
so, a boy should strive hard—should
determine to become so—and he will
become so, and remain so. Besides it
is so easy to speak the truth—mil so
very hard to arrange a plausible false
hood—which even then, will in all like:
lihood be found out nineteen times out
of twenty.
To take the least thing, the least trifle
(if it be worth only a cent, or even less,)
which does not belong to you, is a crime
not only to be punished by law, but
puts a black drop in the heart, and soon
er or later brings the doer to shame.
This is an act so wicked and disgrace
ful, however, that 1 do not think it like
ly to be committed by those who will
read these lines ; and I will say nothing
further than that if a boy in whom 1
felt an interest ever descended to the
wretched meanness of pilfering, or ta
king the smallest article which was not
his, it would go to my soul in many a
long deep stab—one of the sharpest and
bitterest in the world.—Brooklyn Eagle.
Signs of a Poor Farmer*
He grasses his mowing land late in the
spring. Some of his cow's are much
past their prime. He neglects to keep
the manure and ground from the sills of
his building. He sows and plants his
land till it is exhausted before he thinks
of manuring. He keeps too much stock
and many of them are unruly. He has
a place for nothing, and nothing in its
place. If he wants a chisel or a hammer
he cannot find it. He seldom does any
thing in stormy weather or in an eve•
ning. You will often hear of his being
in the bar-room talking of hard tiines.—
Although he has been on a piece of lartd
twenty years, ask him for grafted apples
and he will tell you he could not raise
them, for he never had any luck. His
indolence and carelessness subject him
to many accidents. He loses cider for
*ant of a hoop. His plough breaks in
his hurry to get in his seed in reason,
because it was not housed ; and in har
vest, when he is at work on a distant
part of the farm, the hogs break into the
garden for want of a small repair in his
fence. He always feels in a hurry, yet
in his busiest day be will stand and talk
till he has wearied your patience. He
is seldom neat in his person, and gener ,
ally late to -public worship. His chil
dren are late at school, arid their books
torn and dirty. He has no enterprise
and is sure to have no money; or if he
must have it, makes great sacrifices to
get it ; he is slack in his payments, deals
altogether on credit, and purchases every
thing at a dear rate. You will see the
smoke out of his chimney long after day
light in winter. His horse stable is not'
daily cleansed, nor his horse curried.—
Boards, shingles, and clapboards are to
be seen off' his buildings month after
month, without being replaced, and his
windo.t s are full of rags. He feeds his
hogs and horses with whole grain. If
the lambs die or the wool comes off the
sheep, he does not attribute it to want of
care and food. He is a great borrower,
and seldom returns the thing borrowed.
Ho is a poor husband, a poor father, a
poor neighbor, a poor citizen, and a poor
christian.
DR. BELKNAP AND OPPOSER S.-A rough
countryman asked Dr. Belknap, One day
if he really believed there was such a man
as Job. The Dr. took the Bible and made
him read.
"There was a man in the land of Uz
whose name was Job."
You see the Bible says so."
So it does," drawled out the man ;
"and I don't know anything to' the con
trary:'
....Neither do 1," said Dr. Belkaap, and
thus ended the inquiry.
In a mixed company, hearing a per
son speak in a very fine manner against
the Christian religion, he asked.
Have you found one that is better 1"
And the reply being in the negative, he
added,
" When you do, let me know, and I
will join you in adopting it."—Life of
Dr. Belknap.
D'EPTIIS OF THE OCEAN.—Capt. James
'toss found 15,000 feet west of Cape
Good Hope,Which is the height of Mt.
Blanc, and he sounded with the plummet
25,400 feet or 27,600 English feet, ivith
out touching bottom, west of St. Helena.
Dr. Young assigns to this Atlantic thd
depth of a league ; that is 13,400 feet ;
and to the Pacific Ocean a league and a
third, or about 18,000 feet.
Certain inland seas, like the Mediter- I
ranean and Caribbean, have greater
depths than would be expected from
their proximity to the land ; and seem
to be sunken basins, the form of which
is connected With the volcanic phenom
enon of which they are the seat. The,
narrowest part of the Strait of Gibraltar
is nut more than 960 feet below the sur
face; but a little further towards the east
the depth falls suddenly to 3000 feet ;
and at the south of the Coast of Spain
and of the Sierra Nevada, a depth of
5400 has been ascertained. The eastern
part of Mediterranean is of less depth.
STIIANSE DECISION.—The Cincinnati
Commercial of the 19th ult., gives the
following strange decision of the Court
of Boone county, Kentucky. Two per
sons named Robinson and House, each
had a horse. They looked exactly alike
—perfect matches. Robinson's was . lost
stolen ; or strayed, and he, for the first
time seeing House's animal, brought suit
for recovery. Numerous witnesses were
brought on the stand some of whom tes
tified that the animal was Robinson's,
and others that it was House's. The
patties agreed to submit the ease to the
judge ; who decided that the animal
should be sold,- and the money be equal
ly divided, and if another animal undis
,
tinguishabie from the one in question,
should be found, and be claimed by eith
er or both of the parties such animal
shall be sold, and the proceeds divided,
as in this ease.
A SCRUPULOUS WITNESS.—An eminent
lawyer was employed in an action against
the proprietors of the Rocki ugham Coach.
On the port of the defendant the coach
man was called. His examination in
chief being ended, he was subject to the
leader's cross examination. Having held
up the fore finger of his right hand to
the witness, and warned him to give a
precise answer to every question, and
not to talk about what he might think the
question meant, he proceeded thus :
"You drive the Rockingham coach 1"
"No, sir, Ido not."
" Why man, did you not tell my learn
ed friend so this moment V'
"No sir, I did not."
Now, sir, I put it to you—l put it to
you on your oath—do you not drive Eire
Rockingham Coach V'
"No, sir ; I drive the horses!"
NOT ENGAGED BUT MARRIED.—Some
ridiculous mistakes occur among for
eigners at times, owing to the different
meanings applied to the same word in
our language. During the absence of a
physician of our acquaintance the oth=
er day, a gentleman called to see him ;
and rang the bell at the door. The sum
mons was answered by a Dutch servant
girl, of whom he inquired if the Doctor
was in.
No."
t , Was his lady in 1" .
Yes."
6 , Vitas she engaged 1"
The grit looked at him a moment while
a curious expression settled on her fea
tures, as she replied,
~ Why, no, she is already married !"
The gentlemen sloped.
YANKEE MERCHANT.-A native born
down Easter, who is now 'out West'
selling dry-goods, advertises his stock
of prints as follows
, The largest and most extensive stock
of French, English, and American goods
ever west of Milwaukie. To save time
in describing this vast stock of prints,
we'll just cut the story short by giving
y ou the dimensions as measured by our
Civil Engincer--'Commencing at the
south east corner of said pile of prints,
running due north 24 feet ; thence at
right angles, 4 feet; thence south 24 feet;
and thence north 4 feet to the place of
beginning—being three cords, more or
less—it being understood that said pile
of prints is 4 feet high.'
That man will go ahead:
The Sabbath.
The sabbath is God's special present
to the working man, and one of its chief
objects is to prolong his life, and pre
serve efficient his working tone. In the
vital system it ants like a compensation
pound ; it replenishes the spirit, the elas
ticity and vigor, which the last six days
have drained away, and supplies the
force which is to fill the six days sue- ,
ceding ; and in the economy of existence
it answers the same purpose as, in econ
omy of income is answered by a saving
bank. The frugal man who puts aside a
pound to-day and another pound next
month and who in a quite way, is always'
putting up his stated pound from time,
to time, when he grows old and frail, gets
not only the same pounds back again, but
a good many pounds besides. And the
conscientious man who husbands one
day of existense every week—instead of
allowing the Sabbath to be trampled and
torn in the hurry and scramble of life
treasures it devotedly up—the Lord of
the Sabbath keep it for him and in length
of days and a hale old age; give it back
with usury. The savings bank of hu
man existence is the weekly Sabbath.

Severe Case ofDyspepsin.
From R. P. STOW, Esq., .asst. Clerk
U. S. House Representatives.
Warta' :votes, D. C.,June 15,18415.
Dn. Gao. B. Gaxars:—Dear Sit—l feel it nos'
only a pleasure, but a duty, to make known to'
you and to the public, (if you desire it,) the stn ,
prising effects of the " Oxygenated Bitters," id
relieving me froth that most discouraging disoi
der, Dyspepsia. I have been afflicted for about•
seventeen years with the usual attendant symp
toms, viz: constipation of the bowels, headaehei
pain in the chest, flatulence, acidity of the atom:
ach, and severe nausea; and for months at a time
not the least particle of moisture would appear
on the surface of the chest or limbs, and moat
of the time I was extremely bilious. I have used
various remedies, have been strict in my diet,.
have been dosed with calomel and emetics day
after day by physicians, but all to no guct/ pur
pose. Hearing of the wonderful effects of the
"Oxygenated Bitters," in the cure of Dyspepsia;
I procured some as a last resort , have used four
bottles of the medich e, and find the bad symp
toms all removed, and myself once more in the
enjoyment of health. None but the Dyspeptic
eulThrer, who has felt all the horrors of the dis
ease, can at all appreciate the value of the medi
cine. I most sincerely hope that all will make'
trial of the medicine, and with me be able to re
joice in the return of health.
Lady Cured of Neora lain.
From Rev. 7HO✓4IJIS KIDDER, of
Vermont.
Winuson, Vt.,A ug. 8,1846.
Desn Sin:—lt gives me great pleasure to in you that the " Oxygenated Bitters," with
which you furnished my wife, has wrought a'
cure in her case. About two years since, my
wife was violently attacked with neuralgia in'
the face, through the chest, in the wrists and•
ankles. So violent was the disease, added to a
general derangement of the female system, that
her strength was completely prostrated, her flesh
wasted, and she rendered miserable indeed. 1'
feel grateful for the restoration of her health, and
in duty bound to give pullicity to the above
facts, that others similarly afflicted may know
where to seek for cure. Truly your friend,
THOMAS KIDDER.
From Hon. MYRON L.dWRENCE,
of Mass.
"For some twenty years I had sulTered severe.
ly from humoral Asthma. I was compelled to
sit up one-third of the night, and the rest of the
time my sleep was interrupted by violent fits of
coughing and great diffici Ity of breathing. Ire
all my attendance upon our courts I never went
to bed in Northampton in twenty years but twice,
and then was compelled to get up. Now I lie
in bed without diflieulty, and sleep soundly.
took tho Oxygenated Bitters," according to
directions. The violent symptoms immediately
abated, and perseverance in the use of the rem
edy has removed all its troublesome consegnen ,
Phe value of such a remedy is incalculable.
and I hope its virtues may be widely diffused and ,
its beneficent agency extensively employed."
