' Or like a bell without a ringer,

Or like a well Is about a bucket,
Or hke u Pose and none to pluck it;
Just such as those

The ring if worn
The finger decketh ;
The bell if rung
Good music maketh.
The horse (loth ease

The rose when plucks

So is the maiden
In. mine eyes.
Who loves and marries

A LITTLE HERO.
Grace Greenwood writes the fbllowing lit
tle story—and a true ono it is—for the Lit
tle Pilgrim, a child's paper. She gets the
facts from an incident described in the Hart
ford Daily Times, some years ago, as having
happened in Cult's Meadows:
In the true city of Hartford, Conn., lives
the hero of the true history I am about to
relate—but no longer " little, as the 'perilous
adventure, which made him for the time fa
mous in his native town, happened several
years ago. -
Our hero was then:a bright, active boy, of
14 years—the son of a mechanic. In the
suvare winter of 18—, the father worked in
a 14ctory, about -a mile and a half from his
home 4 and every day the boy carried him his
d niter, across a wide piece of meadow land.
One keen, frosty day he found the snow
on this meadow nearly two feet deep, arid
no tracks of the little footpath remaining.—
Yet he ran on as fast as possible, plunging
through drifts,.keeping himself warm by the
most vigorous exercise, and brave, cheerful
When in the.tuidst of the .meadow, full
half a mile from any hoUse, he suddenly felt
himself going down, down down ! He hal
, fallen into the Well! He sunk down into the
dark, icy water, but arose immediately to
the surface. There he grasped hold of a
, plank which had fallen into the well es he
went doiirn. One end of this rested on the
bottom of the well, while the other rose a•
bout four feet above the surface of the wat
The poor lad shouted for help till he was
hoarse and almost - speechless, but all in vain,
as it was imp( saible for him to make himself
heard from such a depth, and at such a dis
tance from any house. So at last he con
cluded that if he was to be saved at all, he
- must save himself, and beganat once, as he
was getting extremely cold in t e water. So
be went to work.
First, he drew hims9 - lf up the. -
braced himself at the top of it — Fuld --- th - i - frah
of the well, which was built of brick and
had become quite smooth. Then he pulled
off his coat, and taking out his pocket knife
cut off his boots that he might work to
greater ndvantage. Then, with his feet a
g mat one side of the well, and his shoul
der against the other, he worked his way up
by the mos fearful exertion, about half dis
tance to the top. Bore he was 'obliged to
pause, take breath, and gather up his ener
gies for the work yet before him Far hard
er was it than all be had gone through, for
the side of the well being from that point
completely covered with „ice he must cut,
with his knife, grasping places for his fing
ers, slowly and carefully, all the way up.

was all thatteeould do And here Ike lifted

Hon. R. Fowler, Treasurer
of the State of Maryland :
Sir :—Your letter of the 18th inst., au

surry, on you, as Treasurer of the State of
Maryland, for the full amount of Direet Tax
opportioued to that State by the Act of Con
gress of August 5, 1861, less the fifteen per
centum allowed for assumption and payment
of_the_State,_w_ks duly received.
I have made the proper draft, which will
be presented for paymeut as proposed by
Permit me to express my sincere gratifica
tion that Maryland has been the first State
to make full cash payment of her quota of
the Direct' ax.
The payment of Pennsylvania, which pre
ceded that of Maryland but a few days, was
by credit for advances earlier made; as well
as partly by cash.
The other States are promptly following ;
and all, I am sure, partake the satisfaction 1
cannot but express on seeing Maryland now,
like Maryland in the days of the Old Line,
coming forward, with purse and ,sword, to
the defence and support of the American U
nion. With great respect,

Lady Fowell Buxton, in oue of her letters,
gives an account of a dinner at her husband's
house, at which Baron Rothschild, the mil
lionaire, was present. He sat at Lady Bus.-
'ton's right hand; and his -whole discourse
was of money and money-making, and of the
way in which he had trained his sous to pre
serve and expand his colossal fortune. La
dy Buxton expressed the hope that he did
not allow them to forget that never ending
life so soon to begin, for which preparations
must be made. "Oh," replied he, "I-could
nut allow them to think of such a thing. It
would divert their minds from business. It
would be fatal to their success. To get and
keep a fortune is a very difficult thing, and
requires all ones time and thoughts."
The remark, though a melancholy proof
of an utterly worldly mind, yet contained a
great truth. It turned on the same point
with that declaration of Christ, "Ye cannot
serve God and mammon." Baron Roths
child had made up•his mind to serve 1112141-
mon. He did not attempt or pretend to
serve God at the same time. He served
mammon with his whole heart. He devo
ted his children too, on his altar,. and edu
cated them to his service.
But it came to pass that this rich man
died and. then, of all his wealth and splendor
and luxury, how much remained to him ?
Not one farthing! Who would wish to
spend a whole life of care and toil, and throw
away an eternity of happiness, for that which
must be lost so 10011 and so utterly 1

a speech at a dinner in Louisville on the

breaking up the Government; and gave testi
mony, the more forcible as it can* from a

Gen. Roaseau, "the negro hides all the bles

In the same speech he says: •
"I have warned our southern friends of
the danger of continuing it mach longer;
and I tell you to-night, if this war continues
a year from this day, there will not be a slave
on this continent. The -great revolution will
take care of itself—the dead will bury the
dead—and those who are causing all the
'bloodshed and desolation around us, under
the false pretence that we desire to free their
negroes, will, if they persist,' one day find
slavery snuffed out as you would snuff out a
candle. Slavery is not worth our govern-
It is not worth bur libert It
is not worth all the precious b ood now ein:r ,

No, we must still have our government—if
not as it now is, with slavery in it, still we
must - have our government. We cannot be
slaves to Jeff Davis & Co. We must and will
be free. We must have the free navigation
of the Mississippi river; and slavery gets

sweet as .theThreath of a new=born - babe. In

easily done by having all decay removed,
and the use of a good tooth-brush with a lit
tle soap and water, night and morning.—
Common toilet soap will do, but eastile is
preferable, as it is lupe strongly alkaline,
and contains less impurities. The teeth are
decayed and filled with tartar, and discolored
by the acids and vitiated secretions of the

Two .sisters wlto had barely escaped the
flood with their lives, at Penna Haven, one
having been pulled out of the water by the
hair, came to•Manneheltunk yesterday after
noon, on their way home. The father had
just arrived in town to see if his daughters
were safe, and - finding that they were, 'he

cross the river, and while they were sitting.
with them, when the boat upset, and both of
the girls were drowned.. Their bodi3s were
recovered in a few hours after, and by the"
time the father had reached home he receiv

A woman was found drowned a short dis

in her arms, also dead. The child was re

GOD'S PATIENOE.—Theie is no iabre
wondrous subject than the patience of God.
Think of the lapse of ages during which that
patience has lasted—six thousand years !
Think of the multitudes who have been the
subjects of it—millions on millions, in suc

sins which have been _ all that time trying
and wearying that patience,—their number,
their, heinousness, their aggravation. The
world's history is a consecutive history of-in
iquity—a lengthend provocation of the Al
mighty forbearance. The Church, like a
feeble ark, tossed on a mighty ocean , of un
belief; and yet the world, With its cumber
