THE BLIND BOY,
It was a blessed summer day,
The flower's bloomed—the air was mild,
The little birds poured forth their lay,
every.thing in gature smiled.
In pleasant thought I wandeied on,
Beneath the deep wood's ample Shade
'Ttll suddenly I Caine upon
Two children who had thither strayed.
Jutt at an aged birch-tree's foot
A little boy and girl reclined,
His hand in hers she kindly 'pat,.
And then I saw the boy was blind
The children knew not I was near,
A tree concealed me from their view,
But all they said I well could hear,
And I could see all they might do.
"Dear Mary," said the poor boy,
"That little bird sings very Jong ;
Say, do .4eo.hirn in his joy,
And is }fie pretty AA his song?"
"Yes, Edward, yss," replied the maid,
"I see the bird, on yonder tree."
The poor boy sighed, and gently said,
•'Sister, I wish that I could see!
"The flowers - you say, are very fair,
And brightgreori leaves sire on the trees,
And pretty birds are singing there,
How beautiful for one who sees!
"Yet I the fragrant flowers can smell,
And can feel the green leaf's shade,
And I can hear the notes that swell
From those dear birds thut God has made
"So, sister, Gad to me is kind;
Khough - sight, alas! He has not given ;
Put tell me, are there any blind
Among the children up in heaven?"
"No, dearest Edward, More all see—
'But why aSk rue a thing so odd 7"
"Oh, Mari, lie's SO good to me,
'I thought TV like to look at Cod l"
Ere long, disease hie hand had laid
On that dear boy, so meek and mild;
His widowed mother wept and prayed,
That Gad would spare her sightless child.
lie felt her warm tears on his face,
And said, "0, never weep for me,
I'm going to a bright—bright place,
Where Mary says I God shall see.
“And you'll be there, dear Mary, too
But, mother, when you get up there,
Tell Edward, mother, that 'tin you—
You know I never aftWiYou here !”
He spoke no thore, but sweetly milled
Until the final blow was given—
When God took up the poor blind child,
And opened first his eyes in heaven l
THE LAST fLY OF SUMMER.
'Tis the last, fly of summer,
Lai buzzing alone ;
All its black-legged companions
Are dried up and gone.
Not one of its kindred, •
No blue-bottle nit h,
To sport 'mid the sugars,
Or in the milk die.
Pll not doom thee, thou lone one,
A victim tote,
Since the rest are all vanished,
Come dine you with me.
Thus kindly I scatter
Some crumbs of my bread,
Where thy, mates on the table
Lie withered and dead.
But soon you will perish,
• I'm sadly afraid,
For the glass is at sixty
Just now in the shade.
When wasps have all vanished,
And blue-bottles flown,
No fly car inhabit
This bleak world alone.
"Ab, Jemmy, Jemmy," said kind
hearted Dr. Ponsonby, Bishop of Derry,
to a drunken blacksmith, "ram sorry to
see you beginingyour evil course again

[FROM THE FRENCH.i
SALUTATIONS AMONG DIFFERENT NATIONS,
The expressions used as salutations
among different nations ha.ve, under
their common aspect, something charac
teristic and inteiesting even for the
most casual obserier.
In
the East, the expressions savor, in
more or less degree, of the scriptures,
and of the serene and , patriarchal senti
ments of the inhabitants. One recog
nizes the, immobility of these. pastoral
and warlike people, standing aloof from
all human progress. Nearly all have a
foundation in religious sentiments, and
express peace to those whom they are
addressed.
The salutation used by the Arab, "Sal
em," or "Shalem . ," means peace,, and is
found in the word, Jerusalem. The
Arab salutes his friend thus : "May God
grant you a happy morning !" "May
God grant you his favors ?" If God wills
it, you are well." This last expression
betrays their fanaticism.
Torks-have a formula which can only
be used in a sunny clime: "May your
shadow never be lasi." An Englishman
would never think of wishing -a fine
efiadow.
The climate of Egypt is feverous, and
perspiration is- necessary to health ;
hence the Egyptain. meeting yon,,asks :
"How do 'you perspire 7"
"Have you eaten 7" "Is your Stomach
in good order 7" rn
,asks the Chinaan—a
touching solicitude, Which can only be
appreciated by a nation of gourmands.
"Good cheer I" says the modern Greek
in nearly the same language that the an
cients were wont 'to greet their friends.
A charming sedation, which could only
have originated among the happy, care
less Greeks.
The Romans, who were heretofore ro
bust, indefatigable, and laborious, had
energetic salutations expressing force
and action : "Slave", "Be strong",. "Be
healthy"; and, "Guidavia?" "What do
you do ?" or "What make yon,?"
The Genoese of modern times says , :
"Health and wealth", which is very ap
propriate for an active and commercial
people.
The Neapolitan devoutly says: "Grow
in sanctity" ;* and the Piedmontese
"I am your servant". The "How stand
you V' of almost air Italy, forcibly indi
cates the nonchalance of that sunny land.
The Spaniard, grave, haughty,and dif
ferent, - f ishes you "Good morning", to
which we respond : "At your serVice,
sir". Another salutation which the
Spaniard uses, "God be with yon, signor"
shows a melange of respect for one's self
and* religious sentiment. '
The ordinary salutation of the Ger
man is : "%Vie Gehti ?"—L"How goeS
it?"—and has a vagueness somewhat of
the dreamy character of GermaQ. To
bid one s.dien, he says : "LebElh sie
uyohl"—"Live quiet and be happy".—
This last plainly indicates his peaceful
nature and love for the simple joys of
life.
The traveling Hollander asks. you :
"Hoe waartsge ?"—"How do you go,!"
The thoughtful, active Swede demands:
Of what do you think ?" whilst the Dane
more placid, uses the German expres
sion : "Liv vel"---"Live well". Bat
the greeting of the Pole is best of
"Are you happy 7"
The English have the "Good-bye", a
corruption of "God be with you", - and
some others ; bat that which best ex
hibits the character of the English is,
"How do you do 1", as the activity of
the people is shoWn in this detnand
where the do is spoken twice. Nothing
is more characteristic, more lively, or
more stirring than this.
The "Comment vous portez-vaus" of
the Frenchman is equally characteristic.
Tina Frenchman is more active thau.lal
borious—more ardent, more passienete
than thoughtful; and hence the principle
With him is not to do, but to go—to be
livgly, to show himself. There is some
thing in this expression : "Comment
vous portez-vons ?"--wkiMh bespeaks at
once his frank manner and pleasant
face.
VERY LAMENTABLE.--A wooden -legged
amatuer happened to be with a skir
mishing party lately, when , a shlillburst
near him, smashing his artificial leg to
bits, and sending a piece of iron through
the calf of a soldier - near,him. The soh,
Bier "grinned and bore it" like a . man,
while the amateur was-load-and 'emphat

MARIETTA, PA., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1862.
EVIDEIOg OF ILL-B -There
is no greater breach of good manner's—
or, rathei, nobetter evidence oflll-breed
ing—than' that of interrupting another :
in convereation, While speaking—dr com-
mencing a" -- retnitilt before another hai
fully closed..Na well-bred person ever
does it, or Continues a conversation long
with one who does. The latter often
ends an interesting conversation a brupt
ly waived, closed or declined, by the
former, without even suspecting the
cause. It is a criterion which never
fails to show the breeding of the' indivi
dual. A well-bred person will not even
interrupt one who is in all res pects great
ly his inferior. If you wish to judge
the good breeding of Apeman with whoin
you are but slightly acquainted,. mark
such person strictly in this' respect, and
you will assuredly not be deceiv,ed.—
However intelligent, fluent, easy,. or
even graceful, a person may appear for
a short time, if you find such, individual'
guilty of this practice, yon will find him
or her soon prove uninteresting
and coarse. It is one of the surest, and
most infailible tests ever applied for any
purpose whatever. It is often amusing'
to see persons priding themselves on
the gentility of their manners, 'and '.pat
ting forth no little effort to' appear` to
advantage in many other respecti,
readily betray all this particular.
SHOEING GOVERNMENT *IMES. --
iVashington, from 200 to 500 mules and :
horses are continually. .waiting for their'
turn at the shambles.- The modus operz)
andi in shoeing- government, mules is
novel. The most of these mules being
very, careful of their feet, will•not allow
them to be handled. Consequently a
machine is built called the "stocks:"—
The mule is pounded into it, two straps
under his belly, and then hoisted up, so
that his feet will just touch the*beams
below. In that situation each foot is
fastened to the beam below by iron
bands—the bands .being tightly fastened
between the hoof and joint above. Af
ter being` -made secure, he commences
his frightful struggle, which lasts until
he finds himself powerless, when four
workmen approach him, one at each.
foot, and in five minutes he is "done, fin-
ished." There are two of these shops
in that vicinity, *shoeing about 1000
mules daily.
WHAT NEXT.-A gentleman who has
just returned from the borders of the
State relates the following: After the
rebel cavalry left Chambersburg, an
their way towards Gettyshurg, when
about twelve miles distant from the for
mer place, they met a large funeral pro
cession, which they ordered to come-to.
a halt. Dismounting from their own
horses, they selected fortyrthree.of the
best horses in the procession, and
amongst them the horse attached to the
'hearse. No violence was used ; . but, to,
the contrary, the'greatest politenese was
displayed towards the surprised
..mOrirn
era. At length one of the funeral ea
cod demanded to know by whose orders
their horses wore thus taken. the re
ply was, "By order of Gen. McClellan;
they are wanted for the army." As
soon as the funeral horses were properly
secured by their captors, they pursued
their way to the Potomac, leaving the
afflicted friends to find their way with
the corpse to the place of burial as they
best - might. •
THE RAISE OF THE . ROTHSCHILDS
.-
IV WO George 111 came to the English
throne there-was a little boy at Frank
ford who did not dream of ever having
anything to do, peisonally, with the sov
ereigns of Europe; He 'was in-the first
stages of training far the Jewish priest
hood. His name was 'Meyer Ansetem ,
Rothschild. For Some, reason or oilier'
he was placed in a counting, house at .
Hanover, and,he soon discoVeied' what
he *as fit for. He began humbly as an
exchange-broker, and went on to be — the
banker ofthe Landgrave of Hesse, whose
private fortune he saved by,hia shrewd:,
ness, when Napoleon overran, GermanY.
This incident made his fortune, -for,he.
soon became a royal banker, ark,d,when
he died left a calossallortune to -his five
eons; who settled in , fivif gredt-Citiee isf
Europe; !and wild are each ridlier=atthis

PLANTING. TAPS. IN FALL.—We find

to apples and cherries. For pears and

experience would make 'the- locality,

the selectien. In uplands, or other lands
of a naturally 'drY, silicibus'ntiture,
should choose autumn ; but in moist,
heavy or argillaceous soils, spring is un
doubtedly the best, without, reference
to the variety ; of the fruit. „And we
should adopt, this course whether in re
gard to shade or fruit, trees--atwals ex
cepting the evergreens, which, we do not
think do nearly so well in fall
.as,spring.
The best time to transplant in the fall
is as soon as the tress are done growing
whiCh can be determined by the change
.of the leaf. By, this early operations
the roots have time to seize upon the
soil before winter sets in, and the tree
is thus ready 'for an early , start . in the
spring, and is also better prepared to
the severities -of winter. Large trees,

early, or not until the ground 'is frozen
