When the infant morn is nigh,
And faint its blush is seen
On the bright and laughing sky ;
Many a; harp's ecstatic sound
With its thrill of joy. profound,
While we list enchanted"there
To the music in the air.
There's music in the air .
When the noontide's sultry beam
Reflects azolden light
On the distant mountain stream.
When beneath some,grateful shade
Sorrow's abhinglhead is laid,
Sweetly to, the . spirit, there.

Then, oh, then, the loved ones gone

In the music of the:air.

We shall meet, but we shall miss him,.
There will be one vacant chair;
We'shall linger to caress 4ica •
While we breathe our evening prayer
When a year ago we gathered,
Joy was in his mild blue eye,
But a golden cord is severed,
And our hopes in ruin Ee.
At our fireside sad and lonely,
Often will the bosom swell
At remembrance of the story
How our noble Willie fell ;,
How he strove to bear our banner
Thro' the thickest of the fight,
And uphold our country's honor,
In the strength of manhood's nigh
True they tell us wreaths of glory
Evermore will deck his brow,
But this soothes:the anguish only
Sweeping o'er our heart:striogs now
Sleep to-day, .0 early fallen,
In thy green and narrecv bed,
Dirges frotn the pine' and cypress
Mingle with the tears we shed.
The dearest spot on earth to me.
Is home, sweet home—
The fairy-land I've longed to see
Is home, sweet home.
There how charmed the sense of hearing
Thero where hearts are'so endearing,
All the'world is not so cheering
As home, sweet home.

Is home, sweet home, - - •

On home, e. via et home,
There where vows are truly plighted,
There where hearts are so united ;

For home, sweet home.
The dearest spot on earth to me

Thro' storm and night.
When the wild tempests rave,
Ruler of wind and wave,
Do thou our country save-
By thy great might.
For her our prayer shall rise,
To God above the sides ;
On hirn'we wait :
Thou who hest heard each sigh,
Watching each weeping_eye,
Be thou forever nigh,

Firm may she ever stand

Do then our Country save

"Why did you .never think of marl
liege ?" I asked of my friend Lyman
Robbins, who is some ten years older
than myself and a confirmed bachelor..
"I have thought of it," said . he.
"Well, why didn't you marry, then?
"I will, tell yoU. You know Frank
Palmer, don't you ?" . •
"Yes; he failed last week to the tune
of twenty thousand dollars.. But what
has that to do with your story ?" •
"'Sopiething 7 as you will see. - I was
never seriously tempted to make a pro
posal but once, and that was to Frank's
wife—before she was married, do yob
understand ?"
"Oh," said I, growing interested.—
"And why didn't you r ,
"You shall know. I was, young and,
romantic at' that time—she was beauti
ful and accomplished. We were thrown
together in society, and I" was just at
the age to yield to her fascination—
'fboug,h I had never expressed my loVe,
in words,,l suppose my, looks betrayed
me, and I was quite sure.that she was
aware of my feeling towards her. Our
families being somewhat intimate, we
were on the,same footing, and she treat
ed me in much the same confidential
manner as she 'would a favorite cousin."
"Do you think," I inquired, "that she
was in love with you ?",
"No,,paid he, "I never thought that.
I however, she would have
like'd to hate lured me on to a declare-,
ration, and then would' have acted as
fancy dictated. One day, when I had
Made a morning call and was about re
tiring, she told me 'sho was piing out
shopping, and laughingly proposed to
me to go with her and carry the bundles.
Having nothing of importance . to take
up my time, and not tieing averse to the
proposal, partly on account of its novel
ty, and considerably, I rather suspect,
on account of the agreeable character
of the company I should have, I con
sented in the same spirit, and in a few
minutes we were fairly en route,"
"'I have but little to buy,' said, my
companion.. 'You may congratulate
yourself upon that, as you will have the
less to carry.
"We made our first visit to a dry
goods establishment.
"'Have you any lace collars ?' in
quired Caroline.
"A large quantity were displayed, but
they were only five dollars each, and
they were too cheap. At length , one
was found at seven dollars, with which,
it being declared the best in

self 'satisfied and decided to take it.

store next caught Caroline's attention.
"'I must certainly go in and, look .at
their shawls,' said,she ; never sew any
precisely like them. New kind ?' in
quired she Of the clerk. ,
"'Yes,:Miss. Just imported from
France, and warranted to surpass in
firmness of i.exture and in durability any
now extant. Will you have one ?'
" 'The price ?'

"Caroline was startled at this an
"'That is high,' said she.
"'Not for the quality. Just feel it—
see how soft it is, and you will not call
it expensive'
"'•l` did net think of getting one ;to
day ; lioWCyer, I think I must. You
may cliarge it to my father.
"The shawl was folded, wrapped uR
and-handed to the clerk.
"'I suppose father =will scold,' •said
Caroline:;. 'but it is such a beauty.'
"We reached- ere long another dry
goods store, the placard of which, ‘Sell-:
ing of at cost !' proved so seductive that
we at once stayed our steps and entered.
Caroline soon began to examine the
silks. The first specimen. offered, which
to my unpractised eye seemed a superior
quality, was cast contemptuously aside,
and she desired to see the very best they
had in the store. Some were shown
her at two dollars and a half per yard.
After a - while she ordered twelve yards
to be.cut .off for her. This was done,
and the bundle handed to me. The
bill, of course, was sent to her father.
"What with the shawl and silk, each
of which made a bundle of no inconsid,
erable size, I was pretty well weighed
down, and, began to be apprehensive of
the consiquences in case My companion
should make any more purchases. She,
however, soon relieved my anxiety by
. .
saying that she intended to purchase
nothing more. She was only going to
step into a jeweller's to have a locket
repaired. Accordingly, we repaired to
the store of a fashionable jeweller.—
The locket was handed over with the
necessary directions.- 13ut this was not
all. A lady at the counter was engaged
in examining a very costly pair of ear
rings which she was desirous of pur

Ai last, she laid . Thera down raluctantly,

asked Caroline:
"They were handed to her. She was
charmed with them, chiefly, .I imagine,
on =account p of the price, for they' had

"For once she kept her word; and I
was released from my attendance.. But
the thought that she had expended one

POSTAGE STAMPS :—The cheapest post
age stampls the . Trench, at one cent
ime; and the -clearest is that of the hOrse
poet of California, which costs four dol
lars (2l: francs.) The best engraved of
all- the stamps are those of France,
Greece, and particularly that of New
Caledonia, which merits the first place.
The ugliest are those of Belgium and
the English, at l one penny. The largest
are those of Siberia, and the smallest
those of Mecklenberg-Schwerin, which

RURAL SIMAICITY :—Durinct the,flight,
of Professor King's halloon on the 14th
ult., from Bangor East,* it passed over
the clearing of a settler who does not
take , the newspapers. The flock of
children round the floor, spied the mon
ster booming on, and alarmed the trio
ther,•who, rushing to the door, screamed
out, "Come in, children, it's •brie of Jeff:
Davis's bombrshells.". This• is a fact.—

tEr '4A r n epitaph which graces ' the
. ,
church-yard •of Moreton4n-in-Marsh
runs thus.:
"Here lies the bones of Richard Saiston,
Whose death, alas ! was strangely bro't on;
Trying, one day, his corns to mow off,
His razor slipped,'and cut his toe off.
'',An influination quickly flew to,,
;Virlhch toalrYalasi to mortifying, '
And was the cause of. Richait's dying."

The year is fading into a mellow' and
genial old age. The summer of -its ex'"
istence.has been lengthened' far into the
autumn, presenting a picture of , calm
and peaceful old age not often witnessed
in human life. Autumn; always a fine
season, ,has this year 'been ,more than'
usually delightful.. The days,. as'they ,
have shortened; have - grovvn softer; rich-'
er in color, and , in all the bomitifttL:re
turas ..of the harvest. :No -frost has
troubled--the farmer's crops, , and, the
leaves have had time to mature. their,
buds for next year's fruit,,and ,then to
drop quietly to their .forest .graves."
And, by the way, what tireless, workers'
are the leaves, and, how : dependent we
are upon, them fOr, nearly ; all the neces
saries,of Jife. Food an d clothing, light
and heat, come to es through the.labors
of the leaves, those wonderfukalche
mists, who transmute earth and air.into
golden fruit and all useful things. .
Now, the farmer's barns. and cellars
are full of the well-ripened corn; potq+;
toes, turnips, beets and carrots. Y,ota
toes have yielded wEII, ,and the,quality
was never better. Some, of those mealy
fellows, in their bursting jacipts, are
almost, equal to an apple. At.all events,
we may as well say so. Grapes we have,.

a" As. the butchering' season is' at
hand, that valuable family journal, the
Germantown Telbgraph, gives the fol
lowing receipt for curing meat :
To one gallon of water,
Take 14 lbs. of salt,
lb of seigar,
• i• oz. of saltpetre,- •
oz. of potash.
In this ratio the pickle to be increas
ed to any quantity desired, Let these
be boiled together, until all the dirt,
from the sugar rises to the top and is
skimmed oil: Then throw it into a tub
to cool, and, when cold, pOar it over
your beef or perk, to remain the, usual
time, say four or five weeks. The meat,
must be well covered, with pickle, and
should not be put down for at least two
days after killing, during which time it
should be slightly sprinkled with'pow
dered saltpetre, which removes all the
snrface blood, &c., leaving the 'meat
fresh and clean.
Some omit boiling the,pickle, and find
it to answer well . ; though the - operation,
Of boiling purifies the`piCkle by , thro*=

If this receipt" is,. properly; trid,'it
will never be abandoned. There is none
that surpasses it; if so good.

contends that groaning and crying are
the two grand operations by whiai na
ture allays anguish; that those persons
who , give Way to their natural feelings,, ,
more speedily recover from accidents
and operations than those who suppose
it unworthy a rnan to betray such symp

to cry. Be tells of a man who reduced
his pulse from one hundred and twenty
six to sixty, in the course of two hours,
by giving full vent to his emotions. If
people are at all unhappy, about any
thing, let them go into their rooms, and
comfort, themselves with a loud:bohooi,
and they will feel. a hundied per cent.
better afterwards.
In accordance, with the,above, the
crying, of children should not be too:
greatly,discouraged. If it is B,ysternati
