SAN. O. WHITTAKER,
De kind to thy father—for 10, on his brow
Many traces of sorrow are seen;
0, well may'st thou cherish and comfort him
For loving and kind he bath been ; Lnow,
Be kind to thy father—for now he is old,
His locks intermingled with gray;
His footsteps are feeble, once fearless and bold ;
Thy father is passing away.
Be hind to thy mother—for when thou were
Who loved thee so fondly as she ?
She caught the first accents that fell from thy
And joined in thy innocent glee.
Remember tliy mother—for thee will she pray,
As long as God giveth her breath
With accents of kindness, thou cheer her lone
E'en to the dark valley of death,
Be kind to thy brother—his heart will have
If the smile of thy love ha withdrawn :
The flowers of feeling will fade at their birth.
If the dow of affection be gone.
Ito kind tk thy brother ; wherever you are,
The love of a brother shall be
An ornament richer and brighter by far
Than pearls from the depth of the sea.
Ile kind to thy sister—not many may know
The depth of tree sisterly love,
The wealth of the ocean lies fathoms below
The surface that sparkles above,
Thy kindness shall bring to thee many sweet
And blessings thy pathway crown ;
Affection shall weave thee a garland of flowers,
More precious than wealth or renown.
Ae Gude Turn Deserves Anither,
Ye mamma be proud, although ye be great,
The puirest bridle is Mill your brithrr;
The thug may come in the cadger's gate ;
Ac gude turn deserves anidicr.

Dr. Johnson's Pudding.
Last summer I made an excurs;on to
Scotland, with the intention of completing
my views, and went over the saute ground
described by the learned tourists. Dr.
Johnson and Boswell. Imu in the hubit of
taking very long walks on these occasions;
and perceiving a storm threaten, I made
the best of my way to a small building.—
I arrived in time at a neat little inn, and
was received by a respectable looking
man and his wife who did all in dud' pow•
er to make me comfortable. After eating
some excellent fried mutton chops, and
drinking a quart of ale, I asked the land
lord to sit down and partake of a bowl of
whiskey punch. I found him as the
Scotch generally are, very intelligent, and
full of anecdotes, of which the following
may serve as a specimen :
Sir." said the landlord, "this inn was
formerly kept by Andrew Macgregor, a
relative of mine ; and these hard 'oottorned
ohairs (in which we arc now sitting) were
years ego filled by the great tourists, tray.
cling lice the lion jaokul, Boswell pro
ceed... the Doctor in search of food, and
being much pleased with the looks of the
house, followed his nose into the larder,
where he saw a fine leg of mutton. Ho
ordered it to be roasted with utmost expe
dition, and particular orders for a nice
pudding. "Now," says he, "make the
best of all puddings.' Elated with his good
luck, he immediately went out in search
of his friend, and saw.the giant of learn
ing slowly advancing on a pony.
"My dear sir," said Boswell, out of
breath with joy good news! I have just
be-spoke at a comfortable and clean inn
here, &delicious leg of mutton; it is now
getting ready, and I flatter myself that we
shall make an excellent meal." Johnson
looked pleased ~A nd I hope," said he,
"you have bespoken a pudding.". "Sir
you will have your favorite pudding," re
plied the other.
"Johnson got off the pony, and the poor
animal, relieved (torn the giant, smelt his
way into the stable. Boswell ushered the
Doctor into the house, and left him to pre.
pare a delicious treat. Johnson feeling his
coat rather damp, from the mist of the
mountains, went into the kitchen and threw
his upper garment on a chair before ,he
fire ; be sat on a hob near a little boy who
was attending the meat. Johnson occa.
sionally peeped from behind his coat,
while the boy kept basting the mutton.—
Johnson did not like the appearance of
his head; wben he shifted the basting la
dle from one hand, the other was' never
idle, and the Doctor thought at the same
time he saw something fall on the meat,
upon which he determined to eat no mut
ton on that day. The dinner announced,
Boswell exclaimed, •My dear Doctor here
comes the mutton—what n picture done
to a turn, looks so beautifully brown !'—
'l'he Doctor tittered. After a short grace
Boswell said :
"I suppose I am to carve, as usual ;
what part shall I help you to ! The Doe.
tor replied :
"Illy dear Dozy, I did not like to tell
you before, but I am determined to ab
stain from meat to-day.
'0 dear! this is a great ditammtment
'Say no more ; I shall make myself
ample amends with the pudding.
Boswell commenced the attack, and
mode the first cut it the mutton. "How
the gravy runs ; what fine flavored fat, so
nico and brown. too. Oh, sir you would
have relished this prime piece of mutton.'
The meat being removed, in came the
long wished for pudding. The Doctor
looked joyous, fell eagerly to, and in a fe v
moments nearly finished the pudding.—
The table was cleared and Boswell said.:
Doctor, while I was eating the mut
ton you seemed frequently inclined to
laugh ; pray tell me what tickeled your,
l'he Doctor then literally told him all
that had passed at the kitchen fire about
the boy and the basting. Boswell turned
as pale as a parsnip, and, sick of himself
and the cowpony, darted out of the room.
Somewhat relieved on returning, he insist
ed on seeing the dirty little rascally boy,
who he severely reprimanded before John
m,.,.poet t °Fit: d—thr Doctor
' , You little, filthy, snivelling hound,"
said Boswell "When you basted the meat'
why did you not put on the cap I saw you
in this morning ?
couldn't, sir," said the boy.
"No! why couldn't von ?" Bos.
"Because soy mammy took it frotn mo
to boil the pudding in !"
The Doctor gathtred up his hercule:
an frame, stood erect, touched the ceiling
with his wig, started or squinted ; indeed
looked any tray but the right way. At
last, with mouth wide open (none of the
smallest) and stomach heaving, he with
some difficulty recovered his breath, and
looking it I3oswell with dignified contempt
he roared out with the lungs of a stentor :
"Mr,Boswell, sir, leave off laughing,
and under pain of my eternal displeasure,
never utter a single syllable of this abomi
nable adventure to any soul living while
you breathe." "And such," said mine
host, "you have the positive fact from the
mouth of your humble servant."—Suge
Case of Somnambulism.
A Pittsburg journal gives the following
thrilling account of a case of somnambulism
which occurred at the residence of a gen
tleman near that city :
' , Hearing footsteps upon the stairs about
midnight, and suspecting burglars might
be upon the premises, the gentleman rose
from his bed and took down a double-bar
relled gun, with which in his hand, he
proceeded - to the door opening into the
hall. Reaching the door, he applied his
ear to the keyhole and heard what he tlto't
a rustling of garments upon the stairs...
Hastily drawing a chair to the door, he
stepped upon it and inserted the gun thro'
the transon. Just then the thought occur
red to him that it might be his (laughter,
who come time previously was addicted
to walking in her sleep. Passing out into
the hall, with the gun still in his hand, to
be used in case circumstances, warranted
it, he found the apartment entirely vacant
and, lighting a lamp, he then ascended the
stairs. Imagine his surprise and terror
on looking out of the chamber windows to
see among the branches of a tall tree,
which grew there, his daughter, dressed
in her night habiliments and seemingly
utterly unconscious of her perilous posi
tion. Without uttering a word or melting
a sound calculated to frighten her, he atop
ped out of the window himself, and, wind
ing one arm tightly about the waist of the
sleeping girl, he with great exertion man
aged to regain the hall with his precious
burden. The surprise of the young lady
when she awoke and was informed of her
perilous adventure can better be imagined

SPEECH OFLEWIS D. CAMPBELL;
of Ohio—Nineteen Majority—Mak
ing the Best of it.
The Dayton Daily Express contains the
following portions of a speech delivered
by Hon. Lewis D. Campbell, from the bal
cony of the St. Philip's Hotel, on tho oc
casion of his re-election by nineteen ma
jority. It will be remembered that notice
had been served on him that his seat in
Congress will La contested :
"I see carried in your procession to
night a transparency, upon which is pain
ted in large figures, 19 ! Yes, 19 majority!
glorious 19 ! I had rather be elected by
19 majority than 19,000.
4 .1 have received no notice of contest,
but I dare them to do it. I told you, when
I came home from Washington, that the
whole power of this corrupt Administra
tion and the whole power of the South,
were to be used to carry this district; end
if there is to be a contest, I will expose the
whole conspiracy, from the , President
down—all the frauds and rascalities, all
the hundreds and thousands of pipe -laid
will go to Washington with my com
mission as safely lodged in my pe.clret, as
a certain candidate had a certificate that
lie was, and a certain affidavit that he was
not, a member of a certain Order.
, •I will spare my opponent, not out of re
spect for his feelings, for I don't think ho
has got any, but he has a family, he asso
ciates in your city with honorable men, he
belongs to an Order who.° influence it has
been attempted to bring into this contest;
he belongs, too, I ant sorry to say, to a
church standing upon a corner, near to
another corner, where he invited me to ne
gotiate a hostile meeting; but if his God
can forgive him, I can, and I forgive him
will go to the Thirty fifth Congress

the Missouri Compromise—l will look in

"I will do the voting for the people
of this district, and I will do it well, too !
will do the speaking for the people of this
district, and I will do it well, too ! And if
anybody dares infringe upon my constitu
tional right, and attempts to prevent inn ,
from talking and voting upon the slavery
question as I please, I will du some light
ing, too ! I will not say /tow I will do it,
but, like the Quaker, 1 will pull out my
coat, and do my endeavor!
let my opponent and his friends
come to Washington to contest my election.
I will go there with my commission sign•
ed by your Governor, and I will take my
commission signed by your Governor, and
I will take my seat upon the floor of the
lime of Representatives, while my oppo
nent will be compelled to occupy a cold
seat outside in the Rotunda. He may
possibly, against the rules of the house,
squeeze himself into the lobby, but I will
occupy the seat, and do the talking and
voting, I may possibly, as his friends who
accompany him will be my constituents,
treat them to some oysters ! But, as for
my opponent, I would—yes, I would pre
sent him with a Congressional knife."
A Good Hint.
The Old Man of the Mountains tells
how "the devil catcheth away the good
He does it in a great many ways ; but I
shell mention only two or three of the
most common, perhaps. A very solemn
and pugent discourse is delivered on the
Lord's day. Some are almost persuaded
to be Christians ; and for the half hour.
there is an increasing solemnity in the
congregation. The last hymn is sung;
the benediction is pronounced. The au
dience begin to move, but instead of going
silenly down the aisles, they begin to
shake hands, and exchange common-place
inquiries and remarks. Ilow do you do ?
How are you all ut home ? It is very hot
to day, or, it is very cold. When did you
hear from such and such friends And
so the buz continues and increases, as you
thread your way into the poroh, and there,
so many linger and black up the passage
and for no other reason in the world than
to exchange friendly greetings, or touch
upon some topic, as remote as possible
from the subject of the sermon just heard.
When you get by these you encounter a
crowd of both sexes upon the steps radi
ant with smiles, standing M the way and
lingering and talking, at if on purpose to
drive away every serious thought from
It is thus that in a great many congre
gations, here and there, the wicked tete,
"coweth and catcheth away thelseed that
was sown, lest it should take rout down-
ward and bear fruit upward."
And, as if to make assunrance, doubly
sure, instead of walking thoughtfully
homeward, meditating on what they
have heard from the pulpit, you will hear
some of the young people laughing and
talking as gaily as if they were returning
from a party or LyceuM lecture ; and by
the time they have turned the corner, ev.
ery serious thought is gone. The adver-
sary has caught away * khe good seed.
And it• is no better with a great many
in the country, who remain during
the intermission. They spend the time
in frivilous talking, if not jesting rin
planning visits, or in discoursing upon the
existing secular topics of the day. Thus
from Sabbath to Sabbath, the devil, the
great enemy of souls, who I believe al
ways attends church, catches away the
work out of the hearts of thousands in
this Christian land. Reader, how is it
with thee ? Have I been describing thee
in the aisles, in the Porch, on the steps,

Jenny Lind and the Students.
In a certain German town thero was a
tremendous furore about Jenny Lind, who,
after driving the whole place mad, left it
early one morning. The moment her
carriage was outside the gates, a company
of students, who had escorted' it, rushed
back tr the inn, demanded to be shown
Jenny's bed chamber, and rushing up stairs
into the room, tore up the sheets and wore
them as decorations. An hour or two af
terwards, a bald old gentleman, of amiable
appearance, an Englishman, who was stay
ing in the hotel, came to breakfast at the
table-d'hote, and was observed to be much
disturbed in his mind, and terrified ;s• hen
ever a student approached. At last he
said, in a low voice, to some gentleman
near him at the table. 'You are English,
I observe. I\ lost extraordinary . people,.
these German students; raving inad,', .0h!
no,' said somebody, 'only excitable, but
very good fellows,aad sensible.' 'By hea
vens ! sir,' returned the old gentleman,
much discomposed, 'then there' some
thing political in it, and I am a marked
noun. I went out fora walk this morning
and while I was gone they burst into my
bed-room, took the sheets and are now pa
trolling through town in all directions with
bits of them in their button holes."

Front the New Orleans Bulletin of Oct. 20
Passing through the Arcade saloon, we
noticed at one of the auction stands a ne
gro girl up for sale, and deeply interested
in what was going on. Curiosity led us
to pause and inquire the cause of the ap
parent excitement. The bide were going
on in a very spirited manner; dnd gene-
rally at an advance of only 5 dollars at a
bid, and at every bid the eyes of the
crowd would quickly turn to the direction
where the bid proceeded, the interest and
the excitement being, in the meanwhile,
upon the increase. The girl, a bright, in
telligent mulatress, about fourteen years
old, was evidently not indifferent to what
was transpiring. There was no moisture
in her eyes, but they assumed an expres- I
sin which indicated that she felt sonic
anxiety in regard to the result of the sale,
which is not generally the case. As the
bids reached near a thousand dollars, the
excitement became intense, and as that fig
ure was called, a spontaneous hiss was
heard from one end of the room to the
other, folloned by a vehement shout of
! "Turn him out !" "'Pura him out !"
A rush was made for the door, the ham :
! mer had fallen and the girl also in' the
arms of—her mother, who had become
I The explanation of it all was that the
woman been freed by her owner, and had
earned money enough to buy her child,
the inulatress in question, had being a
very valuable servant several persons were
anxious to obtain her, but all of them, with
one exception, had pledged the mother
that they would not bid against her, and
they honorably kept their faith. It was
the conduct of this one, who was bidding
against the mother, which so excited and
exasperated the crowd on the occasion.—
The man made good his escape ; fortu
nately so for him, we think, as we heard
sundry expression about "lynching," etc.,
as the crowd came back to tall; over the
mother was so much ,fleet•
ed by the joy of having succeeded in re
taining possession of her child, that she
swooned away and was carried out of the
saloon. We may add that the sale was a
succession sale, and was not designed to
be anything more than nominal, ai d co•
body intended that the mother should be
deprived of her child.

Salt for Horses.
This will perhaps oause, some to laugh
as undoubtedly all farmers feed salt to
their horses, but I know it to be the cus
tom among a great many farmers and
horse owners in my neighborhood, who
never feed salt to their horses more than
once or twice a week, and then they throw
handful to each horse which he will gree
dily devour on account of his being al
most starved for salt, and it must necessa
rily follow that for the next half day or so
he suffers greatly from thirst; at least such
is the fact in some cases. Now to avoid
all this, I wil give a few practical hints
which 1 have followed for some time, and
find my horses hardly ever refuse a
feed, and are always well and hearty. I
have a small box placed upon one side of
my feeding room, with a lid fastened to it,
in which I keep a constant supply of salt,
which will be found much more conveni
ent than to have the salt in the house or
some out of.the-way place, which is often
the reason of neglecting to salt horses "reg
ularly, I give my horses salt every time
I feed them, but I do not throw a handfull
on. I mix about a teaspoonful with each
horse's feed while I continue to give the
same kind of feed, and when it becomes
necessary or convenient to change the I
kind of feed I then apply a little more
for the first and second time, as I think it
a sure preventative of the cliche, &c.—
One of my neighbors recently lost a mare
to this way; he having occasion to change I
feed, and not adding salt, the horse because
costive, which disease very often proves
fatal to that most noble animals. When
he related to me the supposed cause of
the disease, I remarked that I thought if
he hnd applied some salt it might have
prevented it; ho readily confirmed my
'opinion, and also remarked that he appli
ed a handful of salt at the second feed, but
it was then too late, for the horse would
eat no more. I have also frequently mix
ed an equal quantity of clean wood ashes
w:th my salt. and think it very good for
