THE CHILD'S WISH,
BY HENRY J. HOWARD
" I would I were en helms, me,
"0, don't you wish it too 7"
Said little Ella Summerfield,
Whose eyes of earnest blue,
Resembled those bright violets
That from the moss bank peep,
When Spring is waking up her flowers,
From out their winter sleep.
'Twould be so fine, mamma, you know
To dwell in mansions fair,
To have no wish ungratified,
No sorrow and no care ;
To wander all day long thro' groves
With Summer verdure bright,
And then repose on velvet beds,
When darkness robes the night."
"You have your wish, my darling child,"
The mother mild, replied,
As she drew her loved one to her arms,
Then placed her by her side.
"You have a goodly heritage
Beyond the swelling flood.
A glorious mansion purchased thee,
With your Redeemer's blood.'
"Across the broad, blue ocean, ma,
In England's fairy clime
Where many a towered castle stands
Reared in the olden time ;
With battlements and turrets grand,
And proud ancestral halls
With statued niche's and marble fountB.
And pictured covered walla.
' , With groves and trees, and bowers, ma,
And gently sloping lawns,
Where roves the stately antlered deer
And sports the spotted fawns ;
A garden graced with fairest flowers,
And fruit of every clime,
-Oh 'twould be joy indeed, mamma,
If such a home were mine."
" My daughter, far above the skies,
A richer mansion -stands,
Than e'er was made by man's device,
Or fashioned by his hands ;
No morning joy high o'er the walls
Of jasper finds its way, I
Time cannot blacken gates of pearl,
Nor mark them with' decay."
The light of glory never yields
To night the shortest reign—
Perenial flowers their sweets diffuse
Throughout the verdant plain!
Then, daughter, turn thee to the truth—
Earth's joys ate fraught with strife,
An heiress of the skies thou art
Inheritrix of heaven.

Again to the broad earth spring has

While these earthly,trials should wean
us from a too ardent love of life, they
should not dim our vision to God's mes

over the universe in letters of light and
beauty. Let none close the spirit to

"I have not placed it there for many
weeks, as yon seemed to get along quite

bachelor ( of course he was an old bach

crotchety and crusty) had, for the first
time, observed that there was no glass

through, was one day working in the
harvest-field with his little son, and was
bitten by a snake. He was horror
struck. When he recovered himself a
little, he snatched up his outer clothing,
and made tracks for home, at the same
time busying himself in putting on his
vest; bat it would not go on. He look
ed at his arm, and it seemed to be double
its natural size ; but tugging at it with
great desperation, he finally got both
arms in. But his blood fairly froze in
his veins when be discovered it wouldn't

had reached his house, and throwing
himself on the bed, exclaimed in an
agony of terror: ''o mine frow ! Pm

But his little bit of a wife, standing a

into a fit of laughter so uncontrollable,
that she was likely to suffocate, and
thus beat her husband in dying. The

to put on hie little boy's vest, and was
not swollen at all, except " in the mind."

Mem. Ladies when you go a visiting,
carry smiles and gladness and a joyous
nature and a kind heart with you, and
you will do more good than a dozen doc

uncomfortable feelings at times, but
they - disappear on some exciting occur
rence, not because they are merely "in
the mind," only imaginary, but because
the excited heart wakes up to a new pro
pulsive-power, and drives forward the
stagnating blood from points where its
sluggishness was producing oppression
or actual pain. Mew. 2. For all, when

Social Importance of the Fireside.
The fireside is a seminary of infinite
importance. It is important because it
is universal, and because the education
it bestows, being woven in with the
woof of childhoOd, gives form and - color
to the whole texture of life.' There are
few who can receive the honors of a
college, but all are graduates of the
hearth. The learning of the university
may fade from the recollection, its clas
sic lore may moulder in the halls of
memory; but the simple lessons of home
enamelled upon the heart of childhood,
defy the rust of years, and outlive the
more mature but less vivid picture of
after years. So deep, so lasting, indeed,
are the impressions of early life, that
you often see a man in the imbecility of
age holding fresh in his recollection the
events of childhood, while all the wide
space between that and the present hour
is a blasted and forgotten waste. Yon
have perchance seen an old and half-ob
litisrated portrait, and in the attempt to
have it cleaned and restored you may
have seen it fade away, while a brighter
and Moro perfect picture, painted be
neath is revealed to view. This portrait,
first drawn upon the canvass, is no inapt
illustration of youth ; and though it may
be concealed by some after design, still
the original traits will shine through the
outward picture,, giving it tone while
fresh, and surviving it in decay. Such
is the fireside—the great institution of
Providence for the education of man.
"A PLACE IN THE COUNTRY."-A gen
tleman of this city, says a Boston paper,
who had determined to retire from the
cares of business, and indulge himself in
the mania for amateur farming, had a
very attractive estate—on paper—pre
sented to his notice by a broker. There
was the usual "substantial dwelling
house, large barn and outbuildings, un
failing spring of water, thrifty fruit trees,
rich pasture and arable grounds," &c.,
situated, of course, "in the immediate
vicinity of school houses, churches, and
advantages of civilization." The mer
chant was charmed with the description,
and was on the point of purchasing, when
he happened to meet an old farmer ao
quaintance, who, he suddenly remember
ed, lived in the neighborhood of his
contemplated investment. After the
usual inquiries on the merchant's part
in regard to weather, prospect of crops,
&c., and on the farmer's as to the proper
method of disposing of the "coopoons"
on some government bonds, the former

where they are, or thinking of something
else than what they are doing, or of
somebody else to whom they are speak

well, and to please nobody. It is better
to be interested with the best. A prin
cipal cause of this indifference is the
adoption of other people's tastes to the
cultivation. of our own, the pursuit after
that for which we are not fitted, and to
which, conieqaently, we are not in reali
ty inclined. This folly pervades more
or less all classes, and arises from the
error of building our enjoyment on the
false foundation of the world's opinion,
instead of being, with due regard to
others, each oar own world. '

VOL. XII.--NO. 40.
A Racy Description.
From a treatise on Races, by Griswold
( the Fat Contributor,) we quote a pare -
graph or two :
" I fatter myself that I know some
thing about the horse race. I had a
passion for horse racing when a lad, and
used to run horses with a neighbor's boy
in Tompkin's lane. How vividly do I
recall my last race. I rode the govern
or's grass fad mare, a sorrel roan, if
remember correctly, with two white lest
in the forehead. She was a little found
ered in one eye, bat, with the exception
of something like a watermelon on each
knee, her intellect was unimpaired. 81)4)
was sired by Canal Horse, and d—d by
every one who drove her. Neighbor'
boy rode a cream-colored chestnut, with
a spring halt to harness. On the home
stretch I was a neck and half a shoulder
blade behind, gently encouraging the old
mare to do her-level best by the appli
cation of a corn cutter to her aged ribs.
The limp which she had in her eye pre
vented her taking a clear view of a heap
of cobble stones in the lane, and when
she struck them there was a stumble, a
clatter of stones, horse-shoes and old
bones, and the old mare was wrecked
and no insurance.
" I was picked up bleeding and linens.
ible, and I made the remainder of th
home-stretch on a stretcher, coming in
under one blanket. The race was deci
ded in my favor. The judges allowed.
although I was a neck behind when the
old mare stumbled, yet, as I escaped
without my neck being broken, I came
out a neck ahead,"
HOARDING COIN.-A woman died in
Chester county, recently, leaving behind
her eight hundred and twenty-nine dol
lars in coin—nearly all of it in silver ha i
dollars, the rest in gold. It was found
in two parcels after death, locked up in
her bureau. She was a single woman,
quite penurious in her habits, and lived
entirely alone on a small lot inherited
from her mother. The money was tak
en to West Chester last week and sold
for the benefit of her estate and sold at
the current market rates. This money
was the accumulation of thirty or forty
years, and it is noteworthy that not a
singlecoin was counterfeit. There were
also about one hundred and fifty pennies
—some of them perhaps will be interest
ing to the curious. Living alone as she
did, unprotected, adjacant to a woods,
and frequently absent from home, her
humble cabin never tempted to violence
or outlawry. She died at the house of
a relative, where she was taken sick
while on a visit, her treasure having had
no one to guard it. She made no dis

an examination of her effects it was
