Refuse to squeeze the merry girls!

O save us, mighty Juno!
Who can the pleading orbs despise

We'd kiss all babies now in town,
And try to look mime snugger;

Below will be found two articles co•
pied from aScotch paper, one, an extract
from a speech delivered by the Rev. Dr.
GUTRRJR of Edinburgh, on Sabbath
Evening Sermons ; and the other on
Dancing by Dr. JOON BROWN, son of the
late Dr. Brown Professor of Exegetical
Theology in the Divinity Hall of the
United Presbyterian Church. We had
always regarded the Scotch Presbyteri
ans as being of the most rigid puritanical
type, and were not a little surprised to
find the orthodoxy of Sabbath evening
preaching questioned and dancing de
fended by some of the highest Presby
terian authorities of Scotland. Dr.
Guthrie is, by far, the•most popular pul
pit orator in Scotland at the present
day, and spends much of his time in
reclaiming the vicious, feeding the
hungry, and clothing the naked. Dr.
Brown besides being an acknowledged
crmnoisseur in the fine arts is a gentle
man eminently distinguished for his
literary and scientific attainments. His
writings of late have had a very exten
sive circulation. One story entitled
"Rab and his friends" has, of itself, al
most immortalized him. And he is,
withal, a gentleman of high Christian
character, and is therefore well qualifi
ed to give good and wholesome advice
to his fellow sinners, and this we believe
rarely comes amiss. "C."

You should also, when the time comes,
explain to your children what about
their own health and the ways of the
world they ought to know, and for the
want of the timely knowledge of which
many a life and character has been lost.
Show them, moreover, the value you
put upon health by caring for your own.
Do your best to get your sons well
married, and soon. By Well married, I
mean that they should be married old
fastsionedly. for love, and marry what
is lovely. I confess / think falling in
love is the best way to begin; but then
the moment you fall, you should get up
and look about you, and see how the
land lies, and whether it is as goodly vs
it looks. I don't like walking into love,
or being carried into love; or, above
all, being sold or selling yourself into it,
which, after all, is not it. And by soon,
I mean as s ion as they are keeping
themselves; for a wife—such a wife as
alone I mean—is cheaper to a puling
man than no wife, and is hts best com
Then for your duties to yourselves.
See that you muke yourself do what is
immediately just to your body, feed it
when it is really hungry; let it sleep
when it, not its master, desires sleep ;
make it happy, Poor hard-working fellow'
and give it a gambol when it wants it
and deserves it, and as long as it can
execute it. Dancing is just the music
of the feet, and the gladness of the young
legs; and is well called the poetry of
motion. It is like all other natural
pleasures, given to be used, and to be
not abused, either by yourself or by
those who don't like it, and don't enjoy
your doing it—shabby dogs these, be
ware of them 1 And if this is done, it
is a good and a grace, as well as pleas
ure, and satisfies some good end, of our
being, and in its own way glorifies our
Maker. Did you ever see anything in
this world more beautiful than the, lambs
running races and dancing round the
big stone of the field ? and does not
your heart get young when you hear—
" Here we go by jingo ring,
Jingo ring, jingo ring;
Here we go by jingo ring,
About the merry ma teazle ?"
New York Gazette.
This is just a dance in honor of old
Jingo ; measured movements arising
from and giving happiness. We have
no right to keep ourselves' or others
from natural pleasures ; and we are all
too • apt to interfere with and judge
harshly the pleasures of others* hence
we who are stiff and given to other
pleasures, and who, now that we are
old, know the many wick ednesses of the
world, are too apt to put the vices of
the jaded, empty old heart, like a dark
and ghastly fire burnt out, into the feet
and the eyes, end the heart and the head
of the young. I remember a story of a
good old Anti-burgher minister. It
was in the days when dancing was held
to be a great sin, and to be dealt with
by the session. Jessie, a bonnie, and
good, and blithe young woman, a great
favorite of the minister's, had been

guilty of dancing at a friend's wedding.
She was summoned before the session
to be "dealt with"—the grim old fellows
sternly concentrating their eyes upon
her. as she stood trembling is her striped
short-gown, and her pretty bare feet.—
The Doctor, who was one of divinity,
and a deep thinker, greatly pitying her
and himself, said, " Jessie, my woman,
were ye dancin'?"
" Y es," sobbed Jessie.
"Ye maun e'en promise never to
dance again, Jessie." •
" I wull, sir; I wull promise," with a
"Now, what were ye thinking o',
Jessie, when ye were dancin'? tell us
truly," said an old elder, who had been
a poacher in youth.
"Nae ill, sir," sobbed out the dear
" Then, Jessie, my woman, aye dance,"
cried the delighted Doctor.
And so say 1, to the extent, that so
long as our young girls think "nee ill,"
they may dance their own and their
feet's ; and so on with all the round
of the sunshine and flowers God has
thrown on and along the path of his
Dr. Guthrie of Edinburgh, Scotland, on
Sabbath evening Sermons.
As to Sabbath evening sermons, he
never allowed a servant of his to go out
on a Sabbath evening, nor any member
of his family. The good old Scotch
plan of a man and his family spending
the Sabbath evening under the domestic
roof was the best way of all—(applause).
If there was no other way by which the
servant could get to church through the
day, then one of the members of the
family should stay at home a part of the
day and let the servant go to church in
broad daylight. Then a great deal
might be done by parents. He was
surprised at working people allowing
their children so much out in the even
ing. He would say to every father and
mother, " Take care of your lambs when
the wolves are abroad." More mischief
was done in two or three hours after six
o'clock in the winter evenings than in
all the other 'hours put together. He
thought ministers in Edinburgh could
preach with great profit on some of
those practical duties of life; and he
did not know of a more important one
than this, that they should preach from
the pulpit to parents about the duty of
taking care of their children in the
darkness, when evil deeds were done.
DRATOOF A CONTEMPORARY OF BURNS.
—Walter Glover, known as the carrier
between Dumfries and Edinburg in the
time of Bnrns, died on Sunday last, at
Ferneyside, in his native parish of Lib
ertou—an exteordinary example of
longevity, being in his 104th year, hav
ing been born on the 18th of July, 1758.
When Burns was exciseman at Dumfries,
rtim.was extensively imported there, and
Glover was frequently employed to con
vey it to Edinburg. The permits 011 these
occasions required to be signed by the
poet, and, contingent on -the arrival of
the vessels, these documents were Often
required either at a very late or very
early hour. Glover was wont to state,
as a proof of Burns' regularity and busi
ness habits, that sometimes, when he
used to apologize for disturbing him at
these untimely hours, the poet said,
"Walter it is but my duty, and never
hesitate at any hour to call on me to do
it." Till within the last twelve months
this memorable old man was in the hab
it of walking frequently to Edinburg—a
distance of between three and four miles;
and his chief enjoyment was sitting by
the fireside playing his fiddle, which he
did with considerable skill.---Scotsman.
TOBACCO AND LONGEVITY.-A writer

dents of aged persons yet living, re

New York, last summer. His name is
Peter Buell. He was born in Brook

years of age 1. He is living with a
second wife, who is seventy-three years
old. By his first marriage he had fif

WHAT NAPOLEA'c DID :—JUst before
the great battle of Wagram, while fhe
.army was encamped on the Island of
Lobau, near Vienna, Napoleon walking
one day with one of his Marshal's on
the shore, passed a company of grena
diers seated at their dinner. "Well, my
friends," said he, "I hope ytin find the
wine good ?" "It will not make ns
drunk," replied one, "there is our celler,"
pointing to the river Dannbe. The Em
peror, who had ordered a bottle of wine
to each \ man, was streprised, and made
an immediate inquiry. He found that
forty thousand bottles sent by him a few
days before, for the army, had been pur
loined and were unaccounted for by the
Commissaries. They were immediately
brought to trial and condemned to •be
shot, which sentence was speedily car
ried into execution. Here was a venal
offence, insignificant, indeed, when com
pared with the frauds upon the urgent
wants and necessities of our soldiers, re
cently brought to light, but it received
a severe and merited punishment. A
few such examples in our army would
do a world of good.
THE QUEEN'S FIRST Lova.--Before
Queen Victoria's marriage to Albert,
her majesty cherished a tender passion
for a young Scotch nobleman, subse
quently Lord Ephinstone and Governor
General of India. Her ministers were
very much disturbed at the state of af
fairs, since the laws of England forbid
the Soverign to marry a subject, and
the Queen, like many heedless girls, was
reported to have said that she was
queen and would marry whom she pleas
ed. It was Lord Palmerston's diploma
cy that served the occasion. He very
adroitly shipped the young lover off to
India, commissioned to a high and lu
crative employment,and in the meantime
Albert of Coburg, the handsomest
Prince in Eur Ope, came along and did
the rest. The one became Governor
General of India ; the other first subiect
of her majesty.
A 'USEFUL DOG.-Mr. Schenck, at the
Farms, has a dog which goes out near
the railroad track every night, a few
moments before it's time for the cars,
and waits until they pass, then picks up
the paper which is thrown off by the
expressman, and carries it to his master.
He is always on hand at the regular
regular time, and never fails to bring
the paper when it is there. Monday
night he came back without it, and so
confident was Mr. Schenck that it had
not been thrown off, that he walked to
Rockport, and learned that another
person had been on the route that day,
instead of the regular expressman, and
had forgotten to throw it off. This same
dog used to get the paper by the stage
coach, ere the cars commenced running,
and never missed being at his post when
the stage came along.—Cape Ann Ader.
SOLDIER'S STRATEGY.—The soldiers in
some portions of our army, display the
highest powers of strategy in their
schemes for smuggling liquors and other
contraband articles into camp. One
day not long since, a party started out
with their coffee pots to get a supply of
milk, but the officer of the, day, think
ing he smelt whiskey, ordered every man
to give him a sample of their milk, which
they did, by pouring out a lot of the
lacteal fluid, and were allowed to pass.
That night whiskey was found to be a
bundant in camp, and then it was dis
covered that the soldiers had sealed up
the ends of the spouts of their coffee
pots with bread, filled the spouts with
milk and .the pots with whiskey, and so
passed the inspection of the officer.,
Cr On a bitter cold night of last
month, John Fanwright, of London, C.
W., while drunk, turned his family all
out of doors into a neighboring bush,
and went to bed. The attention of the
family was soon called to their house by
seeing it in flames. The eldest girl
reached it first, and, opening the door,
she called toiler father, who answered,
when she rushed in and pulled him out
by the arm, he having been lying on the
bed. When taken out it was found that
every stitch of clothes he had on was
consumed, his body being literally roast
ed from his head" to his feet. He lived
for about four hours, suffering the most

as an American weakness, but it is only
lately that the full extent of its applica

been discovered ; it is now well known
that .the citizens of the Southern Con
federacy expectto-rate as a nation.
A HEALTH-SEEKING SHIP.-A Paris
correspondent of the New York World
says that an American in that city pro
poses to build a steam vessel for the ac
commodation of consumptive patients.
The writer says
A portion of the year will be spent
in Nice, and when tbis becomes tiresome
and monotonus, or the weather begins to
prove chilly, they wilt steam away for
Madeira, or even farther south, as far as
the Cape of Goad Hope, and thus the
patients will be kept in a warm and even
temperature continually, Five hundred
francs, or about one hundred dollars a
month from each patient will, the pro
jector thinks, be amply sufficient to pay
a handsome profit to the
, managers of
the enterprise, and heis already in com
munication with one of the largest naval
constructors in France in relation to the
matter; and he hopes some tirne during
the comming year to see launched the
An IRISHMAN'S WlSH.—Patrick
Quinn was a baggage master on one of
our railroads, and attentive to his busi
ness. A few evenings since, while at
his post, he was accosted by an excited
passenger, who, in a rude and boisterous
manner, demanded to know the where
abouts of his trunk. Pat, after several
times replying to the interrogatory, lost
patience and thus put an end to the
stranger's troublesome questioning :
" Och; mister, I wish in me soul ye were
the elephant instead of the jackass, for
thin ye'd have yer trunk always under
yer eye." The passenger didn't ask for
his trunk another time.
.ARMY GUNNERS.--Some of the news
papers advise the soldiers, especially
artillerymen, to wear oiled wool in their
ears to protect them from the concussion.
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Ledger who professes to know, says
"No man's ears will be hurt by the re
port of artillery,, if he will open his
mouth, just as we throw up .a sash to
prevent our glass being shattered by the
dischhrge of cannon, so we should open
our mouths to save our ears. The con
cussion conies then on both sides of the
drum of the ear, and has no. ill effect."
LONGEVITV.—In the United States,
during the last year, twenty-four persons
have died at or over one hundred years
of age. Of these, seven were of African
descent, one Indian, and the rest whites.
Twelve were females.. Two of the cen
tenarians were from Connecticut. The
highest age claimed was for Havana,
the Indian, who died aged one hundred
and twenty. There were but sixty-three
names on the pension roll at Washing.
ton, of Revolutionary pensioners, on the
Ist of July last; and not more than
fifty, it is probable, are now living.
'JANE YOU Corn FEET ?—Every night
on lying down and every morning on
rising, dip them in cold water and ru,
them, bard with a rough towel. If th
towel-rubbing be followed by sharp fri
tion with the naked hand, it is as im
provement. Have you headache ? then
keep your lower extremities warm, stop
drinking tea and coffee, eat less, don't
sleep with your head high, and avoid
hot feather pillows. 'Be sure that you

A Nosr.n BOY.—The troops paid off
Sunday afternoon deposited in the hands
of Governor Tod over $3,000 to be for
warded to their friends. One noble lad
who received only six dollars and five
cents, handed over thb six dollars to be
sent to his mother, retaining only the
five cents for himself. A mother's
training will develop the man in that
boy, if spared to reach maturity.
A CAUSE OF THANKSGIVING.-A clergy
man, while praying, " Thou! 0 Lord,
halt made man after thine own image,
and woman like unto him with but little
variation," was interrupted by an old
sinner in the congregation, with the ex
clamation—" Thank God 1 for the, little

cently had a contest with Elliot at Wee
hawken, has died from the Pummelling he
received at the hands of his antagonist.
Elliot was arrested, and is now held for
examination on a charge of leaving the
State to engage in a prize fight.
The story that Mrs. Eunice Bradly,
residing in Trumbull county, Ohio, had
recently been blessed with eight children
at a birth turns out to be untrue. The
Albany Argus says it was a literary man
that invented the hoax, and not a litter
ary woman that gave birth to the brood.

The queerest one is pride of birth,
Among our ', fierce Democracy !"
A bridge across a hundred years,'
Without a prop to save from sneers—
Not even a couple of rotten peers—
A. thing for laugher, sneers, and jeers,
Is American aristocracy !
Depend upon it. my snobbish friend,
Your farolly'tbread you can't ascend,
Without good reason to apprehend
You may find it waxed at the further end
By some plebeian vocation 1
Or, worse than that, your boasted line
May end in a loop of stronger twine,
That pleagued some worthy relation !
Because you flourish in worldly affairs,
Doik't be haughty, and put on airs,
With insolent pride of station!
Don't be proud, and turn up your nose
At poorer people in plainer clothes;
But learn, for the sake of your mind'srepose ,
That wealth's a bubble 'that comes and goes ;
And that all proud flesh, wherever it grows,
Is subject to irritation.

WHY SLEEP RESTORES
When we are wearied out with toil,
And bruised with pains of earth's turmoil,
If for a time of slumber deep
We lose ourselves in dreams and sleep,
We rise, from strength's exhaustless hoard
Enriched and thoroughly restored,
When, but a little while before,
We were so feeble,drained, and poor.
Thinker and saint, man good' atid Wise,
Canst tell me whence tins doth 'ariie?
Dear friend, I verily can tell
The cause, and explicate it well..
With grief and blows when wortrand torn,
If sleep we may, we wake at morn
Refreshed in every nerve and Thought,. ..
Because this marvel lath been wrought;.,
The instant that asleep we fall,
The soul escapes its fleshy pall, t
And is absorbed in heaven from this,
To lave with love and bathe in bliss
Its stiffened limbs and flagging powers
Through all the nightly slumberous hours ;
And when returning morn arrives,
It fresh from God's embrace revives.
