The Light of the House.
Patting o'er the carpet,
Patting up the stair,
Tiny feet are running,
Running everywhere.
Peering through the window,
Little Willie's face,
With its smiling features,
Brightens every place.
Bunny curls are gleaming
On his baby brow,
Innocence is shining
From the blue eyes now.
Down beside his mother,
At the close of day,
In his childish beauty,
Willie kneels to pray.
Folded are the white hands,
Raised the starry eyes,
And the voice goes upward
To the silent skies.
On sweet mamma's bosom
Willie falls asleep ;
Round him gentle angels
Unseen watches keep.
Thank God, gentle mother,
For the jewel rare,
And may the Great Giver
Bless you with bis care.

TRH NORTH-WM COAST; or, Three Years' Res
idenoe in Washington Territory. By /aims G.
Swan. With numerous illustrations. 12m0.,
pp. M. New York : Harper 44 Brothers,
Franklin Square. 1857.
We have read Mr. Swan's book with much sat
isfaction. He tells his story without any attempt
at fine writing, or philosophical expositions. His
object is to describe that portion of the territory
which lies South of the Straits of Fuca, and
North of the Columbia River, including the soil,
climate, natural productions, state and character
of the Indians; and, in fact, to give a faithful
picture of the region, euch as it presented from
the year 1852 until the Autumn of 1856. Mr.
Swan's residence, or head-quarters, was on Shoal
water Bay, lying to the . North of the Columbia,
from whence he diverged in different directions,
and thus became intimately acquainted with the
actual state of 'the territory. His experience
confirms the statements of Mr. Blodget, of Wash
ington, relative to the mild, and genial climate
of the Western region, and his book is a valuable
help to the right understanding of the delightful
prospects presented to settlers in that distant
but important part of the great commonwealth.

per :'Brothers. 1857.
We have already had occasion to commend Mr.
Bonner's History of the United States, and after.
war& to speak in language of still stronger ap
proval of his History of Rome. Now we are
called on to say that in the two pretty volumes be
fore us he has been quite as happy in compiling
his History of Greece. We have examined the
work with much care, and we can truly say that
it is a capital abridgment. The sentences are
short, and very direct; at times the language
verges on the humorous--sufficiently so to arrest
the attention of the young reader; but it never
sinks into the vulgar or slang style which betrays
an imperfect education, or a low mind. The vol
umes abound with capital _illustrations; and
while the work is admirably fitted as a prepara
tion for extensive reading, it is equally useful for
marking off the great points and features which
are discussed with such amplitude and philosoph
ical research in the pages of Thirlwall, Milford,
and Grote.

Churches in the father-land ; and the selected
pieces are judicious and instructive.

For the Presbyterian Banner and Advocate
Barley Growing.
M. EDITOR .—Since barley growing bas
become quite a business in various locali
ties, it has occurred to us that a few words
through the columns of the Banner and
Advocate, might not be amiss. In lofting
over the farms in this vicinity, perhaps one
third 'of the fields are made to produce this
grain. Nor are these fields the property of
the worldly, or those who make no preten
sions to morality; but the possession of
those who stand high in the community, and
in the Church, and who are looked 'to as
patterns—whose influence gives a shade of
right to whatever 'they may sanction.
But why institute an irtsF ry here as to
the propriety of harley-ranling ? Has the
farmer not a right to use his soil in what
ever way it may redound to , his interest ?
There is a demand for the article, and in
pursuance of that demand, he scatters the
seed. He finds that it pays, and his pock
ets are replenished; and, regardless of its
use'and'ultimate moral bearing upon socie
ty, he consoles himself with the comforting
reflection, that it is no concern of his to
what future use it may be applied.
We hold "that the earth is the Lords,
and the fullness thereof;" that all the pur
suits and avocations of life should have
direct reference to clothing the naked, and
feeding the hungry, or ministering to some
substantial want of poor humanity. We
hold these truths to be self-evident ; and
whatever practice or occupation does not
comport with them, must be, to say the very
least, of doubtful propriety. Let us not be
misunderstood ; we do not mean to say that
barley-raising is per se sinful. We believe
that nature intended it to be applied to other
purposes than those for which it is cultivated.
We think it the duty of the farmer to look
beyond the mere production of the article ;
especially when the perversion from nature
is so apparent. Whence comes the demand
for the article, or whence is created the
necessity of its production ? Does it arise
from a healthy Christian spirit, or a legiti
mate want in the community ? We can
not answer these interrogatories in the af
firmative. Would that we could. We tell
the farmer, though he may not be aware of
it, that he is encouraging and stimulating a
morbid appetite in the community; pander
ing to vice and inaugurating debauchery,
in various forms, in almost every village and
hamlet. Whence proceeds the numerous
murders throughout our cities, that have so
recently shocked the moral sensibilites of
the community, which have become callous
owing to their frequent occurrences? Do
they not, invariably, proceed from, or are
in some way connected with, the drinking
revelries of a lager-beer saloon ? Has the
barley-grower ever >thought of this ? He
may return, after having delivered the pro
ducts of his soil at the brewery, with his
pockets glittering with gold; but does it
occur to him that future drafts will be made
upon his purse for the use of the Common
wealthyto bring to justice some devotee of
the rites of Bacchus, whose appetite he has
stimulated, although- reposing in the con
sciousness of having done no wrong?
But in these remarks we do not intend that
any odium should attach to those engaged
in that pursuit. The time was whenit was
considered perfectly harmless, and in accord
ance with the strictest rules of moral recti
tude. No man, not even the most scrupu
lous, had any misgivings on the subject.
The time has come, however, when Chris
tians are called upon to take a higher stand,
and to reflect a living Christianity: in all the
practical bearings of life. Let farmers, al ,d
especially those who profess to be regulated
by the precepts of the Golden Rule, consider
this subject and its moral bearings upon the
community. With them it should, be a
a question of serious moment, Whether they
have made their farms conduce to the hap
piness, comfort, and moral elevation of their
kindred. To those, we know it -would be a
consoling reflection that they had alleviated
suffering, and wiped the tears of distress
from the. affectionate brow. But we must
close our remarks. It is our object to call
attention to the subject rather than to give
its bearing upon society. We hope that
some one else more skilled, whose percep
tions are more acute in tracing the relations
of cause and effect, may be induced to take
the pen, and do ample justice to the sub
ject. If, however, , no one undertakes the
task, we may recur to the subject again.

The Little Missionary.
"I should like to be a missionary 7 aunt
Mary," said little Ellen, "just like uncle Wil
liam. Do you think he would take me with
him ?" " And leave mamma ?" said a kind
voice behind her. "O, no, mamma 1 I had
quitc; forgotten that. I never could leave
you. But still Ido wish I was a missiona
ry." "And it my little girl had her wish
granted, what would she do ?" " I would
tell the little children about gentle Jesus,
mamma, and how he loves them ; and I
would try to get them to love him, that they
might go to heaven." " Well, Ellen, lam
willing you should be a missionary. But
can you not begin at home ? You can set
a good example to your brother; for, if you
are dutiful and affectionate, lie will try to
imitate you; and as he cannot =read yet,
you can teach him your texts and hymns,
and tell him the Bible stories you are so
fond of." " Oh, thank you, dear mamma I
I can do that; And now will you please to
give me a nice little verse to teach Willie P'
" Will this do, Nelly ? Little children,
love one another."
Ellen looked veay grave ; for she remem
bered that often, when her little brother
teased her, she was apt to get angry, and
forget altogether that there was such a verse
in the Bible. However, shewent to look
for Willie ; and when she had found him,
they, sat down together and she taught him
the, text,;" and then, in her own simple way,
tried to explain it. Poor Ellen I The day,
so well begun, was not to end without a
trial of her love. When she went to play
with Willie, after dinner, he was sitting on
the nursery floor, tearing out leaf after leaf
from her pretty "Bible storybook." " 0
Willie, Willie, you. naughty, wicked boy 1"
she cried; "how could you spoil my book?"
"Little children, love one another,"
whispered conscience; but Ellen was not
ready to listen to it. When, however, she
saw how' grieved her mamma looked, and
heard her say, "Ellen, is that .a missionary
spirit ?" she was very, very sorry, and ran
away weeping very bitterly.
At length s day came when Ellen must
leave her mamma. She stood by her bed
side ; and papa and aunt Mary were there;
but they could not ease her pain, or go with
her through the valley of the shadow
of death. "Mamma, _ papa," she said,
" what are you crying for ? I am, not
afraid. 4 He shall carry the lambs in his
bosom.' I am one of his lambs; and I
want to go to him. 'Won't you let me ?"
They could not answer her; and she went
on. " Sing for—me j dear mamma. Sing
4 Bright glory.'" Her poor mamma tried ;'
but sobs choked her voice, and she could
not. " Papa, will you sing ? Aunt, will
you ? Nurse, will you sing 'Joyful' for me.
All tried, but all failed; so little Ellen raised
herself, and sang :
Little children will be there,
Who have sought the Lord with prayer,
And trusted in his grace.
Oh, that will be joyful ! joyful, joyful, joyful!
Oh, that will be joyful !, when we meet—"
The little head fell back upon the pillow,
and the song, begun on earth, was fin.
jelled in "bright glory," for little Ellen was
What a Blind Boy thought of Heaven.
At a Sunday school in 'Albany it was
asked, "Why is heaven a happy place?"
For some moments there was silence in
the school. It was soon broken, however,
by a soft, silvery voice, which replied:
"Because Jesus is there !"
This beautiful answer came from the lips
of a little blind boy, named George. Happy
boy I Though unable to see the beauties of
nature, or the pleasant faces of his . friends,
or the pages of the holy - Bible, yet his
young heart had opened to. the story of a
Savior's love, and he felt• that where Jesus
is there is heaven. May Jesus 'dwell in
that blind boy's heart I He will then carry
a little heaven.. With him as he gropes his
way along the unlit path of his pilgrimage.
ENERGY.--"The longer I live," says a
great writer, "the more certain I am that
the great difference between men, the great
and the insignificant, is energy—invincible
determination—an honest purpose once fixed,
and then death or 'victory. That quality
will do any thing that can be done in the
world; and no talent, no circumstances, no
opportunity, will make a two-legged -creature
a man without it."
A WORD TO BOYS.—Begin in early life
to collect libraries of your own. Begin with
a single book; and when you find or hear of
any first-rate book, obtain it, if you can.
After awhile another, as you are able, and
be sure to read it. Take the best care of
your books, and in this way, when you are
men, you will have good libraries in your
head, as well as on your shelves.

A Lesson to a, Scolding Mother.
A little girl who had witnessed the per
plexity of her mother on a certain occasion,
when her fortitude `gave way, under severe
trials said :
44 Mother, does God ever fret or scold ?"
The query was so abrupt and startling, it
arrested the mother's attention almost with
a shock.
"Why, Lizzie, what makes you ask that
question ?"
Why, God is good—you know you used
to call him the Good Man ' when I was
little—and I should like to know if he ever
"No, child, no.'
" Well, I am glad he don't, for scolding
always makes me feel so bad, even when
not in fault. I don't think I could love
God much if he scolded me."
The mother felt rebuktid before her sim
ple child. Never had she heard so forcible
a lecture on the evils of- scolding. The
words of Lizzie sank deep into her heart,
and she turned away from the innocent face
of her little one to hide the tears that gath
ered in her eyes. Children are quick ob
servers; and Lizzie seeing the effects of her
words, hastened to inquire ;
"Why do you cry mother? Was it
naughty for me to ask so _many questions ?"
" No, love, it was all right. I was only
thinking'how bad I was to scold so much,
when my little girl could hear and be
troubled by it."
"0, no, mamma, you are not bad; you
are'a good mamma; only I -wish them was
not so mitny bad things to make you fret
and talk like, you did just now. It makes
me feel away from you so far, as if I could
not come near you, as I can when you smile
and are kind ; and 0, I somtimes fear that
I shall be put off so far I never can go back.
• 7,
"0, Lizzie, don't say that," said 'the
mother, unable longer to suppress the tears
that had been struggling in her. eyes. , The
child wondered what could so affect its
parent, but instinctively feeling that it was
a case requiring sympathy, she reached up
and laid her little arms about her mother's
neck and whispered :
"Mamma, dear, do I make you cry ? Do
you love me?"
"0, yes, I love, you more than I can tell,"
replied the parent, clasping the child to
her bosom, and I will try never to scold
again before my,little sensitive girl.
"0,1 am glad. I can get so near to you
when you don't scold; and do you 'know,
mother, I want to . love you so much"
This was an effectual lesson, and the
mother felt the force of that passage of Scrip.
tore : "Out of the mouths of bes have I
ordained strength."
She never scolded again.
Productive Labor.
Reason as we will,,the impelling power in
the accomplishment of any design, is reward.
A. return in some form is what actuates la
borers in all conditions of life; and amid the
multifarious employments pursued by the
human family, the gratification of some pe
culiar development of mind, or the supply
of some want, is the incentive that inspirits
the toil-worn and urges the task to completion.
Were it not for this " meed to be won," en
terprise would lie down and die—the eulti
'voted fields become desolate, silence brood
where now is heard the hum of the busy
wheel and the click of the shuttle, ships
would rot, and ocean indeed be a "waste
of waters," while despair, mantling the hu
man face, would reign sup eme. We prate
about the "infringement of our liberties,"
when we discover, or think we do, some ag
gression, but if ever any one should endeav
or to wrench from the people the liberty to
labor, the period has then arrived to drop
all words, and put in play, arguments noted
for the proclivity to horizontality by them
impa'rted to'the object against which they
are brought to bear.
Work is the necessity of a healthy man,
and one who would remain so. Physical
strength is given us to use, and mental
power is furnished to guide and direct that
we be not " blind leading the blind," and
meeting with the fate inevitable under such'
circumstances. Work is to a ,community
what the heart is the physical system—
the engine which not only gives circulation
to the sources of life, bat prepares them for
use, by abstracting whatever is pernicious,
and infusing whatever is needed to sustain,
invigorate and fully develop. The edict,
"In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat
bread" has proved to man, constituted as he
is, his greatest earthly blessing. Were it not
for his opportunities and capabilities of per
formance, the block of marble fashiond under
the chisel would be his peer. For all man has,
is, or will be, he is indebted to toil. All
the acts that have blessed mankind, sprang
from the giant brain of Labor, guided aright;
and though those that have shed baneful
influences bad the same great origin, right
motives and right ends directed them
The farmer amid the class of productive
laborers stands pre-eminent, and in his pe
culiar vocation every stroke should be made
to tell fruitfully. The mechanic may go
back, tear down, and rebuild, without more
detriment than mere loss of 'time; the
farmer, if be mis•directs his energies,
wastes not only time and toil, but the results
thereof. The principle inculcated in the
advice of Putnam at Bunker Hill—" don't
fire till you see the whites of their eyes"—
is one worthy of study ; there should lie no
waste of ammunition. from the turning
of the furrow to the marketing of the pro
duce, every implement and assistant should
be right. With the best tools the best work
can be performed, and wherever the best
labor is given you will be sure to find the
best returns.
Another requisite to productive labor, is
the entire absence of brakes or hold-backs
when the prosecution of any undertaking is
decided upon. With a single exception,
every means to insure success may be taken,
but the result may turn upon that isolated
point. A striking illustration of this fact
was observed a few days since, while on a
trip through the Genesee Valley. A friend
was possessed of two pieces of wheat—forty
and ten acre lots. To the former of these
he had held title for a number of years, and
had done what was in his power to render
the soil fertile by manure, drainage, &c.;
the latter was a late acquisition, and every
thing, except draining, bad been .given it
with the hope of profitable crops. Equally
careful in the preparation of the land, set
extion and application of seed, it was to be
supposed that being similar in soil and re
ceiving similar treatment, the coincidence
would be carried out to the end. The re
sult is, that while the forty acres will yield
considerably over eight hundred bushels, the
ten would have been quickly stud to any
one offering fifty bushels. The dampness of
the soil had retarded the growth and hard
ening of the grain, and the midge had levied
upon and
appropriated almost the entire
crop. Between the two fields there, was
nothing but a narrow cattle path leading
from the pasture. In conversation with the
cultivator, he remarked that " when he had
completed tbe course of draining which he
intended to give the ten acres, he would not
pay any mama premium to insure his crops."
In water-soaked soils the nee,essary heat can
not be generated—vegetation does not re
ceive a tithe of the benefit it ought from
stimulants applied—the air is shut out, and
half-drowned roots will not support any
thing more than a half grown crop. -
Again, productive labor is that which,
raises maximum crops in the most econom
ical manner. As the agriculturist occupies
the most extensive department of human in
dustry, how important it is that he sheuld
avail himself of every means by which this
end may be attained'! Whether the prc
duetion of cereals, the dairy, stock-raising,
or fruit-growing be best adapted to his farm,
the object he should always keep in view,
is the attainment of the highest standard of
returns with the least expenditure. To ac
complish the husbanding of all the sources
of fertility—the thorough preparation of
land—care in the selection of seed—obtain
ing the best strains of blood for domestic
animals—in fact, the exercise of all the
the means and agencies that can be brought
to bear are necessary. Without this, com
plete success is among the impossibilities—
with it, obstacles apparently insurmountable
are passed over with ease, and the Harvest
Home is redered a season of plenty and re
joicing.—Rural New Yorker.

Politeness in Married Life.
"Will you ?" asked a pleasant voice.
And the husband answered, "Yes, my dear,
with pleasure." It was quietly but heartily
said; the tone, the manner, the look, were
perfectly natural and very affectionate. We
thought, how pleasant that courteous reply!
how gratifying must it. be to the .wife!—
Many husbands of ten years' experience
are ready enough with courtesies of polite
ness to the young ladies of, their acquain
tance, while they speak with abruptness to
the wife, and. do many rude little things,
without considering them worth an apology.
The stranger,, Whom they may have seen
but yesterday, is listened to with deference,
and although the subject may not, be of the
pleasantest nature, with a ready smile;
while the poor wife, if she relate a doinestie
grievance, is snubbed, or listened to with
ill-concealed impatience. 0! how wrong
this is--all wrong. Does she urge some
request—" Oh ! don't bother me !" cries her
gracious lord and master. Does she ask for
necessary funds for Susy's shoes and Tommy's
hat—" Seems to me you're always wanting
money!" is the handsome retort. Is any
little extra demanded 'by his masculine
appetite—it is ordered, not requested.
Look here, I want you to do so and so;
just see that it's done ;" and off marches
Mr. Boor, with a bow and a smile of gen
tlemanly polish, and friendly sweetness for
every casual acquaintance he may chance to
recognise. When we meet with such
thoughtlessness and coarseness, our, thoughts
revert to the kind voice and gentle manner
of the friend who said, " Yes, my dear;
with pleasure!' "I beg your pardon,"
comes as' readily to his lips, when by any
little awkwardness he has disconcerted her,
as it would in the presence of the most
fashionable stickler for etiquette. This is
because he is a thorough gentleman, who
thinks his wife in all things entitledto pre
cedence. He loves 'her best—Why should
he hesitate to show it, not in sickly, maudlin
attentions, but in preferring her pleasure,
and honoring her in public as well as
private. He knows her worth, why should
he hesitate to attest it ? " And her husband
he praised hei," saith Holy Writ; not by
fulsome adulation, not by pushing her
charms into notice, but by speaking as
opportunity occurs, in a manly way, of her
virtues. Though , words may seem little
things, and slight: attentions almost value
less, yet depend upon it they keep the flame
bright, especially if they are natural.--

of the Surrey County jail communicates to
the London Times certain criminal statis
tics, which show several instructive facts,
and of rather unexpected character. It
appears that of two thousand three hundred
and fitty•seven prisoners, only three hundred
and seventy were married, and•these had an
average of less than three children each,
showing at once the humanizing tendency of
the marriage relation, and also that its re
sponsibilities deter, far more than its burdens
and difficulties provoke, the criminal incli
nations of the middle classes. A remarkable
evidence is also presented, in opposition to
the ordinary opinion that want is a leading
cause of crime. The committals in July
and August, when the days are lobgest, em
ployment most plentiful, weather most fa
vorable, and food cheapest, actually outnum

FAITHFUL.-A young British officer,
who was mutilated and disfigured in battle,
requested "a comrade to write to his betroth
ed in England, and release her from the
bridal engagement. Her answer was worthy
of a true woman :—" Tell him if there is
enough of his body left to contain his soul,
I shall hold him to his engagement."
EPISCOPACY.-A writer in the New York
Churchman is greatly scandalized, because
the Rev. Dr. Eastburn, besides considering
himself not Bishop of Massachusetts, bat
only of the Episcopalians in Massachusetts,
even believes that if a Baptist Bishop were
elected to-morrow, he,would be as much a
Bishop as himself.
PREACHING.---Baxter said, "I never got
a. fanciful text, or an ambitious theme on
my knees." " Special, internal, efficient
aid," says Dr. Henderson, , " will be granted
to profoundly humble prayer." Says Wick•

bring that eternal light from the Spirit,
which cannot be dispensed with in the in

The author of "The Great Teacher" Snit won distinction
by his brilliant displays of pulpit eloquence. So great was
his renown that his services were in constant request for
special occasions throughout the kingdom. The Sermons
here presented to the public, fully sustain the reputation
which they procured for their author while living. They
are, entitled to be ranked with the best models of this sort
of Composition. Some of them are master•pleces, unsur
passed for grandeur of conception, sublimity at thought,
and impetuous, glowing eloquence. Original without being
eccentric, liberal and at the same tim evangelical, they
stimulate and enlarge the understanding while they warm
and satisfy the heart.
