Sympathy is a state of the mind which
gives happiness to some, in the cgntempla•
tien of the enjoyment of others, and les
sons in like manner the sufferings of its
fellow man by the partial participation of
it. To smother this feeling on this (latter)
account would be vs wise, us to put out
our eyes because they sometimes behold
disagreeable sights, or to cut out our tongue
because we could not govern it. Shall we
forbid oursetves the joy of the blessed in
Heaven, by suppressing this beautiful de
velopment of character, because sometimes
misfortune oft claims its tender exercise?
No, for it enlarges affection, and incites to
better deeds. Without selfsacrifice there
can be shown but a passive virtue through
life. Nero, the ancient tyrant, was an ex
ample of the principle, which he fully car
ried out, of rot caring for the welfare of
others. History points to his cruelties with
a warning finger, and leaves us to contrast
them with better examples for our own
benefit. Like Charity, sympathp should
begin among our relatives, and friends at
home, but I think it should not end there.
Its limits are undefinable, for the whole
world is its proper field of action, Theuglt
the intellectual inquiries of man begin up
on earth, they extend to invisible worlds.
If then local scenes bind not the mental
powers, let them•nut effect the sympathies
either. We should not enquirewhen our
feelings are excited to comparison—from
what courtry, or in what year crone the
unfortunate to us, but in what manner re
lief and comfort tnay be afforlsd
"Lord, what ening dial' we bring
To thine altars wive we bow ;
Hearts the pure ,nsullied spring,
When ills kind affections flow.
Soft compassion's feeling soul, •
13y the melting eye express'd ;
Sympathy—at whose control,
Sorrow leaves the wounded breast.'
Though you oppose vices,—hate not the
sinner for hatred is injustice, and should
you even suffer from the error of a fellow
being regard him with mercy, and attempt
his reformation with gentleness. If we
wish he had not done wrong. sympathize
with his frailty, and if through our imilea.
vors he turnoth not from the broad road
which leadeth to destruction, upbraid him
not, but pray that God may touch his
heart. In ao doing we do a most impor•
tant duty, for God "sondeth his rain on
the just and unjust." if our good charac
ter has been •seriously maligned by an evil
doer, though we may lawfully defend our
selves, we ought never to unite ill-feeling
with the use of proper justice. Outward
evils are but temporal, and can sometimes
be remedied, but who can toll what may
result from harboring malicious desires?—
The course of right is not without its tri
als, when energy is a proper attribute, and
assistant, yet the resistance is to be aimed
against the evil instead of the evil doer.—
Then let us all have
"Willing hands to lead the hlind,
Bind the wounded, feed the poor ;
Love—embracing all our kind,
Charity with liberal store.
Teach us. 0, thou Heavenly King,
Thus to show our grateful mind;
Thus th' accepted ofrring Wing
Lovo to thee and all mankind.'
Mistakes of a Night—Sleeping in the
Wrong Bed.
An acquaintance of ours—Brown—sleep
in the third story of one of our hots Is. On
Sunday night, contrary to his usual ab.
stemtous habits, Brown concluded to in.
dulge himself in the luxury of a hot whis
ky punch.—The liquor had the effect to
set his spirits in a glow. Brown argued
with himself arithmetically, if ono whisky
punch will snake a man feel good what
will two whisky punches do ? He Look
another punch. It was now bed time
and Brown, becoming slightly topleavy:
started towards his dormitory, As before
stated, he roomed in the third story. Be
ing a little heavier on this occasion than
usual, Brown, of course experienced more
difficulty in getting up stairs. Owing to
this fact he thought he had attained a grea
ter altitnde than he really had: con
tezence was, in the first place, that Brown
'Phis room belonged to a lady and gentle
man but was unoccupied at the time Of .
Brown's entrance. 'rho room was very
lilte his own, and brown, not being inti
mately acquainted with himself, prneoe
ded to divest himself of his habilements
land got into bed.
Just as he had fallen Into a short of drea
my, drunken w akefulness, he felt a soft
hand wandering over his face and pressing
his temples in a very affectionate manner.
He leaped with a sudden hound into
the middle of the floor, and the lady, for
such it wns, screaened and ran down the
stairs. Meeting her husband, who had just
come in, the lady informed him of what
she had &severed and how she had very
nearly made a terrible mistake. The hus
band wont opts his room, accompanied by
a couple of servant, and found the door lock
ed. In answer to repeated tunnpings on the
door Brown answered in great indignation
that raper than be interrupted in that way
he would leave the house, accordingly Limn
mencd to harness up.—Nleantime the true
state of things flashed across his befuddled
intellect, as he opened the door he stood
out in bold relief to the husband and ser
vants, looking the picture of shame and
confusion. Being proverbially a polite
man, Brown stood humbly passing his
hands over each other, as he related how
the tnistake occurred, seemingly
Washing his bends in invisible soup
And imperceptible water.
His profuse apologies and I hasty exit sa
ved him from being precipitated headlong
down stairs. He has not been seen at ta
ble since and is supposed to have sought
another boarding-house,
Young man, if you have r vim! at tho
right point in in life for it, lot every consid.
oration give way to that of getting married
Don't think of anything else. Keep po
king about the rubbish of the world till
you have stirred up a gem worth posses
ing, in the shops of a wife. Never think
of delaying the matter, for you know that
delays are dangerous. A good wife is the
inost faithful and constant companion you
can possibly have by your side , while per
forming the journey of life—a dog isn't a
touch to her. She can smooth your linen
and your cares (or you—mend your trow
sers, and perchance your manners—sweet
en your sour moments as well as your ten
and coffee, perhaps ruffle your shirt bo
soms but not your temper; and instead of
sowing the seeds of Barrow m your path,
she will sew the buttons on your shirts,
and plant happiness instead of sorrow in
. 1 in your bosom.
When a woman loves; she loves with a
double distilled devotedness, and when she
hates, it is on the high pressure principle.
Her love is as deep as the ocean, as strong
as a hempen halter, and as immutable as
the rock of ages. She won't change un
less it is in a very strong fit of jealousy,
and oven then it lingers as if loth to de
part, like evening twilight at the windows
of the west. Got married by all means.
All the excuses you can fish up against do
ing the deed ain't worth a spoonful of pig
eon's milk. Get married. I repeat, young
men ! Concentrate your afloctions upon
one object, and do not distribute them
crumb by crumb among a host of Susans.

The Yankee in the Museum
Years ago, when the Siamese Twins
wore on exhibition here, a tall son of
'Drown East" stepped up to the ticket
office cf the museum.
After "dickering" some time with the
long-lugged door keeper, ho disbursed
"swindle," as he called it—a quarter of
a dollar—and entered to see the "curiosity.
He surveyed the unique pair for the space
of five minutes, without saying a word.—
At length he broke out:
"How long you feller♦ been in this hind
of ti hitch?"
“Forty•two years,” replied Eng.
"Do tell ! Gettite kind o' used to it, I
"We Ought to be, by this time," said
the twins, together.
"Yes —'zactly; should say so tow, my
self. B'long to the same church, shouldn't
wonder?" -Yes," said Chang, "we do."
"Want to know ?" continued the Yen
kee.—.Wal," he added, examining the
ligature," of one of pia dies, Votheell be
in a fix, won't he ?" "It would be bad,"
said Eng with something of sadness in his
face at the thought.
"Don't drink nothin"xpect?" pursued
their interrogator. "Ever go in to swim?'
“Sometimes," they answered.
After gazing at and scrutinizing them a
few „g2gincnts longer, the indefatigable

said Eng, laughing at the idea,—
"I'd go Chang's bail!"
"Sariain—yo-e•e.s ycou could do that,
couldn't ye ?" And here closed the in
.?tructivo colloquy, and the inquisitor,
' whistling Yankee Doodle, retired, and
gave. room for a fresh ' , lot" of examiners
to interrogate anew the wonderful curiosi

of our glorious Union, when his attention
was suddenly attracted to it crowd of per

They don't know anything about a scold
tog wife !—Wait till they have one up
wards of eight years, and hammered and
jammered and jawed at ell the while—wait
until! they have been scolded because the
fire wouldn't burn, because the oven was
too hot, because the cow kicked over the
milk, because the sun shined, because the
hens didn't lay, because the butter woulant

because they are one minute too late, be

cause they tore their trowsers, or because
they did anything, (whether they could
help it or not.) before they begin to talk

CURIOUS CASE—A Mau found Gnill
by a Jury is proven Innocent by aCalf.
We mentioned in our lest, in an abstract
of the proceedings of the Circuit Court,
that a titan named John Halpin had been
found guilty and condemned to a year,s
service in too Penitenuary for having sto
len and killed a hiefer belonging to IL J.
Reed. It turns out that Mr. Reed's hiefer
was neither stolen or killed, for a day or
two ago it canto home alive and hearty.
thus proving ibat poor Halpin had been
wrongfully condemned. Fortunately, ho
had not been sentenced ; so a new trial
was granted him, upon which the. indict.
ment was squashed and the man released.—
