A inliti overboard l' heard the cry distinctly as the angry dark waters whirled me under the counter and astern. ' Who?' Where?' and ' Let, go the life-buoy !" Call the life-boat's crew away !' These were the orders in rapid succession, followed by the hur ried rush of feet, and creaking of blocks as sailv.,us shorteaed,und,khe ship bro'e to the w nd, h iejt ros6aboVe the sound of the whistling sfivall and of, the roar ing waters in which.l was immersed. We had been out from Genoa about three'days•mi our way . to Malta: The weather had been very squally, with thick, driving ruin, and at the time I -felt -uyerboard ulpa le-reefed,twmals and,courses ; - ,tho top gallant sails had just been taken in to a fresh squall. I Was standing on the weather-netting, holding on to a top .gal hint backetay, when it parted, and the'next moment I was plunged into the water. At first I went down like a lump Of, lead; but in a few seconds be gan to ascend. When I reached the surfaee, however, it was to hind myself w hiding from the vessel with a confused noise of the howling wind and the hubs lint* Miter in my earsA I was so . hlinded; the wfater that I could net i mediatelysee:.lfipUn toih and round - as in a whirlpool, for I was caught in the eddies under the stern. As I rose on the top of a.billow,l saw that the ship was hove-to, ,her quarter boats were down, and her rigging full of men anxiously endeavoring to get sight of me ; but the darkness of the ap preaching night was increased by that of the squall, and another driving cloud of ,rain coining down,: effectually :slid nib from their sight. • How my heartsank Withiti.me. Was to perish, and within hearing, too, of my shipmates? ' Ahoy! Aho—oy !

Alas! no answering hail, was heard ; the ship was' 1114 t drifting - to, leeward, and her boats pulling from instead of twat* e After giving way for sonic moments despontleney, 1 rallied myself, and began to consider my situation more calmly. 1 knew that that part of the Medilerrancau was crowded with ves sels, and the squall would soon clear oil, and that even if night came before _was picked up,.the glorous moonlight -would enable iite ti see any Vessel that might happen to be near me; so I turn ed over on my Jack to husband. my strength as much as 1 could.. As a swim mer 1 had seldom net my equal • be sides, - I calculated ) that the and anything else that might have been thrown overboard; might, have floated in the -tnie direction and nearly as fast as myself, Nor was I mistaken, for r shortly perceived an mur not far from tue. Swimming to it 1 got it, under my arrnq, and then thought that by God's 'prividenee 1 might still he saved. My limt object in this new frame of mind, was to.get rid of my boots, which were by this time full ot•water, and dragging me down. This 1 did without much ditliculty, having often practiced doing ro for sport,'llttle dreanlitig how useful such praCtice would eventually turn out. I remembered that just before I fell overboard there were three or four ves sels in sight, one of which, 'a French brig, was not far from us ; and I calcu lated that my drift had been, In Ler Ali- Notion; and a the s'quall 'Cleared . I endeavored tbmake her out. Of course my vision ofdistant 4objeas was 'eutnff every moment' by my being carried down intil the trough of the sea, , .No one who has riot been in a similar situa tion can appreciate the awfulness with which I gazed on the dark, glistening sides oftlit, Ns:ayes as 1 saw myself sink ing away from•theni, as if to the very bottom of the ocean.

My senses began to desert me, and I felt, gradually stealing Over me, an inclination to thrust my frail support from me, in order that the end might icome sooner than it 'othef wise would.

In the , drawing-room and dining-room of the affluent, in The public-rooth of the'hotel, in every place of iefreshment, in the social gatherings of the poor, in the harvest-field and the work-shop, alcoholic liquor was at one time deemed essential. Too often it is deemed so still. Many a host and cm- Ployer, many a young companion, shrinks even now from the idea of ex-• changing the kind offices of life With tut the aid of intoxicating liquors, as be would shrink from some sore offense against;triste and propriety. Not to put the cuff) to your neighbor's lip, in one word, is to sin against the most abso lute of earthly sovereigns—fashion. • NoW what is there in these usages to entitle them to the patronage of the wise and good? Are they necessary ? ;Are they safe Or useful? . Unless they can show some offset to the vast amount, of evil which they oc casion,i tl 'ey ought, surely, to be ruled out of .coi rt, liutat is one prepared to main tai i that these drinking usages are necessarS ,—that it is necessary, or even useful, that men should use intoxicat ing ' liqm rs as a beverage ? Do they add vigor to muscle, or strength to in tellect, or warmth to the heart, or rec titude to the conscience? The experi ence of thousands, and oven millions, has answered this question. In almost every age and quarter of• the world, but especially within the last twenty-five years, and in our own land, many have made trial of entire abstinence from all that can intoxicate. How few of them Will confess that they have suffered from it, either• in health or body, or elasticity of spirits, or energy and ' ac tivity of mind 1 How many will testi fy that, in each of these respects, they were sensible gainers from the time they renounced the use of all alcoholic stimulants! But,- if neither useful nor necessary, can it be contended that these drinking customs - are harmless ? Are they , not expensive ? Many a moderate drinker, did he reckon up acburately the cost of this. indulgence, would discover that it Rims one of his heaviest burdens. No taxes, says Franklin, are so of as those which men levy on themselves. Appetite and fashion, vanity and osten tation, constitute our most rapacious tax-gatherers.

There is little doubt that the amount i.iirectly or' indirectly consumed in Pennsylvania annually, for the same indulgence equals slo,ooo,ooo—a sum which, could it be saved for four suc cessive years, would pay the debt which now hangs like an incubus on the en ergies of the commonwealth. In Avast : lug $250,000,001 every year, the labor ingl) population of Great Britain put it beyond the p wer of any government to avert, from- multitudes of them, the miseries of wt nt. Were but a tithe of that sum ,ore idled from the hands of toil-Worn labor, and buried in the .Thames or the ocean, we should all re gard it as an act of stupendous folly and guilt. Yet it were infinitely better that such .a sum should• be east. into "the depths of the sea, than it should be ex pended in a way which must should the morals, and.destroy the health, and lay waste the personal and domestic happiness of thousands. If the ques tion be narrowed down to one of mere material wealth, no policy can be more 'suicidal than that which upholds 'Ma ges, the inevitable effect of which is to paralyze the productive powers of a people, and to derange the proper and natural distribution of property. Re member, then, that he who stistaing these usages, sustains the most) prolific source of improvidence and want. He makes, at the sumo time, an inroad up on his own personal income, which is but a loan from God, intrusted to him for his own and others' good.

CURILNU HAY. ExperienCe proves that, grasses should be cut for bay when the stalks are in bloom. The best time of all, both for clover and other grasses is just when in full bloom, and the ear liest blossoms are beginning to fade.— , If net too heavy it can then be cut in the morning, and if carefully scattered, can he hauled into the barn in the af ternoon oft he same day. This makes the hest, quality of hay. It retains more of the 1111triment of grass than it' it is left exposed to dews and rains for a few days,.'and goes much farther both for fattening stock and for producing milk. But when the grass is very heavy, and is cut with a mowing scythe and thrown into heavy swaths or rows it will not cure thoroughly under two days, and is not so good for food as that cured and put away in one day. Dew and mois ture always aftbet the fibre of cut grass and weakens 'the strength of the hay. They also injure and destroy the sugary matter contained in the stems, and ren der them dry and tasteless. When a branch of hay can he twisted tight with out showino• t . ' moisture or juice, it is dry enough to be stowed away. A little salt scattered over hay which bus been caught in showers will improve it; and render it more palatable to stock.-Farm Journal.

Si: RVA NT 0 nr, Mary Ann was a hired girl She was called "hired!' chiefly be-. causeshe always objected to having her wages lowered. Her simple name,' was Mary Ann, and she never had any other as fur as I know. She. went through the world on plain Mary Ann and seemed content. She was of Hibernian extraction, and she said she was descended from a line of kings. But nobody. ever saw her descend, although they adruittA there must have been a great descent from a king to Mary Ann.- . . And Mary Ann never had any father and mother., As fur us it could be as certained, she was spontaneously born in an intelligence office. : .. . It was called an,intelligence ofliee-be cause there was nointelligence about it, excepting au intelligent way they had of chiseling you out of two-dollar bills. The early youth of Mary Ann was passed inuutswering advertisements for female help, and in sitting on a hard bench, dressed in a bonnet and speckled shawl, sucking the end of a parasol. Personally, Mary gnat was a young thing on' about, forty Summers, with rich blowsy hair and It cream-colored complexion. She weighed two hundred pounds, and wore her own hoops when she couldn't, get anybody else's. She had at fiery black eye, which was al ways blacker when she returned from a wake, and she had a brass ring on the third linger on her left hand. Her nose began well, and had evi dently been conceived in an artistic spirit, but there • scented not to have been stuff enough, as le i was left Rahfinished, finished, and knocked ,upward ate the end, while her waterfall was tied up in a scoop net, • . I But she was a fair young creature, and she had a delicate, nervous system, and a tine sense of propriety. She said he would never live any where where they didn't have Briissels carpet on the kitchen, and a family who would take her to.the seashore in Summer. And as she knew absolutely nothing, she said she must have four dollars a week as a slight compensation for having to take the trouble to learn. Anal Mary Ann had her peculiarities, too. She indulged astrong predilection for cooking chickens with the craws in them, and she always seemed to think that as Nature had placed scales on the fish, it was wicked to remove them. Yes, Mary Ann was eccentric, and she would often boil her stockings in the teakettle, and - wipe the dishes with her calico frock. Her brotijer was a bricklayer,, ' and he used to semi her letters sealed up with a dab of mortar,, and it was thus per haps she conceived the idea that hair was a good thing to mix in to hold things together, and so she always in troduced sonic of , her own into the biscuit. But Mary Ann was fond—yes pas sionately fond of work. So i much did she love it that she dilly-dallied with it, and seemed to hate to get it done. She was often very much absorbed to boy carne- 1.-. f.....cia, .3 , ,,,, .., tl. an ansore ing person, and many other things were absorbed besides Mary Ann. But ter, and 'beef, and eggs, were all ab sorbed, and nobody ever knew where they, went to, Mr Mary Ann was a clandei tine absorbed, and -never was ostentatiOus. ' And she was very fond ofgood victuals. She was delicate and her constitution required it, Indeed she was so ilagile and etheseal that her nature required a stimulant, and she Would get boozy four times - a 'week on the cooking wine, and lay stretched acrolis the ice chest in the Cellar Until sherecovered. But there was some things that Mary I Ann couldn't bear. blib had a deadly hatred of good bread, and 'she conceived such a dislike for coffee that she always made it taste like boiled boots and to butte° Au ice. - Anil whenever Mary Ann had to make honed turkey, she used to bone the turkey ago effectually that 'nobody could tell what became of it. There was also a strange fatality at-, tending Mary Ann's • efforts in the crockery' line. If she so much as laid, her little linger on a saucer, that idea- 1 tical satri,'-er would itnmdeiately fail on the floor and be shattered t atoms. But Mary Ann would mere • say that she couldn't help it. If the a ruction of gravitation was very powerfu 'ti that spot she wasn't to blame for it, for she had no control over the laws of nature, anal so Mary Ann never worried herself about it. Although !fury Ann never had a father or manlier, she may lave been the. daughter an her uncle allaunt, for Oho manifestly had -uncles: Uncles indeed seem to have been one of Mary Ann's weaknesses, for she had some twenty or thirty cousins who came, to seem her every night, and who stayed late and practiced' pigeon-wings anal Irish jigs oar the kitchen floor. Her uncles' children were all males, and there was a mysterious and inexpli cable eonneetion between their visits and the condition of the pantry which nobody could explain. There was some thing, shadowy and obscure about it, for whenever Mary Ann's cousins came there was :always a fading away in :the -sugar box and low tide in the 'flour barrel. It was strange, but true. But as often as Mary Ann watched and got on the alert, just that often she said she couldn't imagine how it was. 1 And she was absent-minded, also, li c l nal in a moment of self-forgetfulness, she would blow out the gas and still:b eide the family, or perchance she would hold the baby for an hour by the leg and let it hang until it burst a blood vessel. . Absence of mind, however, was not as strong a suit with her as absence of I body, and her Sunday (int used to come I -once a week, and sometimes twice. But she always went to church, she said, and she thought it was right to neglect her work for her faith, for she believed that faith was better than works. . Mary Ann was a believer in cold war ter also, not as a beverage, but as an in strument of torture. She was intensely happy when she could stick herself out of a second story window, and wait till a man came by with a new hat on.— That was Mary Ann's chance, and it filled her with tender joy to grab a tin cup and souse water down on that nine dollar hat and utterly ruin it. When she did this she would sit there unconcerned like, until the man got past, anti then she would get down and fairly burst the hooks and eyes oil her .(11:4.!;3S, exulting with wild laughter over her deed. And sometimes she would go out and scrub the pavement, and then she we'd turn the hose on, and go up the alley and lay off until she saw a fellow draw ing near with blacking on his boots; she would rush and dairripout a bucket full of water over them, Mid enjoy her - self to hear him curse. _ These were the happy moments of her enequered life, and she would go in and feel a peaceful calm in her soul when she did it. , ~ - • Mary Ann, too, had a marked par tiality for good clothes. Often in silent meditation in her retirement in her own kitchen, she would reason to herself that a benelicient • Providence had hi:I : - planted in the female heart a desire for Deeds, Mortgagee, Leasoa ' and a full assortment of Constables' and Justices ' Blanks on hand. Poop Wiring at a distance can depomlon bay ing their work done promptly and, sent back in return mail. • NO. 27.1 goodly apparel, and she would frequen tly think, "Was it her- business to fly in the fad'of Nature, and to refuse to appease the longings of her bosom ?" And she always said—No, it wasn't, ; and then She would' take hold of her kerosene lamp ; and go up stairs and try on her mistress's bonnet, and help her self to under clotheS and' flannel petti • coats, and then she would see how she looked in a velvet cloak. Wit a sad dened heart, then, regretfully, but feeling ~it •to be an imperative and melancoly duty, she would nail any hemstitched handkerchief or hoplery or valuables that were lying around. She said herself. she wag sorry, but -her womanly instincts were strong, and she felt as if she must obey them. But if the beginning of Mary Ann was strange, how extraordinary was ler ending! .She never. died—Mary AO was not one of your perishable kind. But she suddenly disappeared. Ohe day she was there full of life and spirits, and hope, and.cooking " wine, and tle next day she wasn't, and the place tht once knew her, knew her no more. Where she went to, how she went, by what means she went, no one could tell ; but it was regarded as a singular Coinci dence that four aprons, eight napkins, a soup ladle, two ear-rings, and a lot of valuable greenbacks melted away at the same time, and it is supposed that , -the person who stole Mary Ann away ml%st have captured these. f• And Mary , Ann was never heard of again. There wash wild tradition that her form was seen hovering around the intelligence office in a new bonnet, but" it was, probably, her spectre; which came back to haunt the place she loved on earth—the one sweet place that was tilled•with so many pathetic and ten der memories of the missing M.ary Ann. —Johns The Campaign. Correapondonco of the, Agitator Having acquired what is aptly called the habit of "disjointed thinking," I present to your readers the following jottings as being applicable to our pres ent situation. In the year '62, when oats were vp I called upon Deacon B. to try to buy his oats; (now the Deacon, is well known for asking and generally getting a good price for his produce,) thinking ho had set the price a -little too steep, I told him Pennsylvania oats were quoted at--. "Sir, mine are York state oats," was the reply I re ceived ; and when I began to think about it, I found we made York State butter and raised York_State grain, and from the Susquehanna to Erie, our Coal, Irg umber, Oil and Farm pro duce finds an outlet by Way of York Suit(:, and our merchamthie conies back by the same channel. .Ergo : Legis lation that impedes ready communi cation with the great marts in this di rection is determined to the interests of a portion of this State, rich in the arti cles above enumerated, with a popula tion second to none for intelligence, Loyalty, and Btpublicanism.

I thought, thus, does that brilliant legislatiOn t that: dazzles " Cowanesque") operate upon our commercial and manufacturing in terests. • In a speech delivered by Scnatoi Sprague on the 19th of March last, he says: " The great evil in both Houses of Co.pAress was that too many of the mein hers were lawyers, men educat , A only iu one line, in ono range of ideas and experience, and thertifore incompe tent to represent faithfully the diverse interests and necessities, of the great mass of I the people."

Absolutists in Church and State have acted upon it in all ages. It is the plea of the rumseller and the stock speculator. It was the great prop of the slaveholding aristocracy, who were also pleading statute law against their obligation to obey divine law. In like manner those cowardly spirits who shrunk from the pangs of martyrdom in the days of ecclesiastical persecution justified their cowardice by pleading the paramount claims of human law. , In deed, the principle admitted would, in a corrupt state of society, cover 'any practice which might be declared legal by the ungodly representatives of an ungodly people. ;We greatly prefer honest William Taylor's practice to this dangerous dog ma. There is something refreshing about his great act in those days of dis honest haste to be rich. It is redolent of respect for that higher law Which should bind the consciences of debtors . and creditors. We honor the math, and commend his example to every man ' who owes his brother.
