From the Chester Valley Union 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. BALTIMORE, FEBRUARY 10, 1866. A WORD FOR WIVES.-" Little wives ! if ever a half suppressed sigh finds place with you, or , a half-unloving word es capes you to the husband whom you love, let your heart go back to some tender word in those first love days; remember how you loved him then, how tenderly he wooed you, how timidly yon respond. ed ; and if you can feel that you have I not grown unworthy, trust him for the same fond love now. If you do feel that through many cares and trials of life you have become less loveabla and at tractive than you were, turn—by all that you love on earth, or hope for in heaven —turn back, and be tie pattern of love liness that won him ; be the dear one' your attractions made you then. Be the gentle, loving, winning .maiden still ; and doubt not, the lover you admired will live forever in your husband. Nestle by his side, cling to his love, and let hie confidence in you never fail ; and my word for it, the husband will be dearer than gee lover ever was. Above all things, do not forget the love he gave you first. Do not seek to "'emancipate' yourself—do not strive to unsex yourself, and become a Lucy Stone, or a Rev. Miss Brown ; but love the higher, honor ordained .by our Savior of old—that of a loving wife . . A happy wife, a blessed mother, can have no higher station, needs do greater honor." gOtytnVeut Vonsitiania ggurnal fax le one itirrit. MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 12, 1866. The Lay-Preacher. " Let the floods clap their hands, let the hills be joyful together." Again to the broad earth spring has returned with her story old as creation, yet ever new, ever beautiful, ever wel come. The floods have shattered their crystal fastnesses and clap their hands in triumph at their release, and the hills are joyful bearing up their emerald vest ments into the glad sunshine and the genial air. The violet long since raised its modest head among the early flowers, and the trees bear up rejoicing their choirs of wild-wood minstrels that wake the morn ing and bid farewell to day's departing hours. The sea, with all its grand, solemn as sociations, heaves more gently beneath spring's softened skies, and the few flow ers that love its salt baptism, have wak ened from their long and deathlike sleep. Already the sower has scattered his seed upon the waiting earth, and the warm sunshine and the gentle rains have quickeneil them, and in due time the "ear and the full corn in the ear" will gladden the heart of the reaper. So the promise made of old that the spring time shall not fail has been already re newed. To the untried and the unhardened heart that looks out through appreciat ing eyes at the unfolding beauties of the season, how many new hopes are kindled and fading ones restored I how all things unite in the exuberance of life! how brilliant and varied are the hues that deck the wide landscape ! how the birds utter the surging melodies of the happy spirit and send them out and upward on the passing winds, and how these winds seem bat the whisperings of the angels, rejoicing with us at the advent of anoth er spring. If to other eyes this beauty and glory are dimned, if to other ears the birds' sweet strains recall sad memories and regrets, if the wounded and troubled heart casts its own shadow over the springtime brightness, there remains still the duty full of solace of grateful submission, of cheerful acquiescence to Him whose loving' care has chastened but to heal. Oh, let not such close their eyes to the crowding testimonies of a Father's love, shown in all outward things as well as in the recess of the soul. If there-were no sorrow for the loyal and lost, if the heart never ached unto breaking over the moral death of these once pure and good, if disappointments never clouded or extinguished our dear est hopes, then earth would be too fair for those born to die, the present too precious for the far unknown. While these earthly,trials should wean us from a too ardent love of life, they should not dim our vision to God's mes sage of hope and tender care written all over the universe in letters of light and beauty. Let none close the spirit to the constant inflowing of soothing influ ences. Our joys and griefs are for a day, God labors for, eternity, -and none can sinlessly disregard his gifts. Welcome then, all that is glad and , beautiful in our daily paths, welcome it at the outpouring of a Father's love, welcome it as a heavenly minister of consolation where grief bas sent its des olating stream. The little wayside bloseom, bathed in dew, warmed by the sunshine, rooked by the breeze, utters its voiceless testimony unto Him who rules on earth as in heav en ; and'shall man, to whom praise and prayer are permitted, be silent, shall the noblest voice of all forget its prerog ative, and be still amid the general awakening of praise ? No ! with the streams that clap their hands, and with the hills that are joyful together, let man rise above hie sorrows and cares, wipe the mist from his eyes, open his ears that be - may hear, and be one of the vast company that praise, day and night, God, ' who sitteth upon his throne and raleth in love and mercy forever and ever. eir Mrs. Smikes says the reason chil dren are so had this generation is owing to the wearing of gaiter shoes, instead of the old fashioned slippers. Mothers find it too much trouble to untie gaiters to whip children, so they go unpunish ed ; but when she was a child, the way the old slipper used to do its duty was a caution. Aurae marriage the heart of .a widow is like a furnished apartment, where' one is ;pt.' to find something left there by a former lodger. In the Mind An old man was shaving himself one day before the fire, but suddenly ex claimed In a great rage to the maid-ser vant : " I can't shave without a glass why brit not here ?" "Oh !" said she, "I have not placed it there for many weeks, as yon seemed to get along quite as well without it." The crusty old bachelor ( of course he was an old bach elor, or he would not have been so crotchety and crusty) had, for the first time, observed that there was no glass there, and his inability to shave without one was "in the mind" only, it was im aginary. A Dutch farther, who measured a yard 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 meet by about a foot. By this time he had reached his house, and throwing himself on the bed, exclaimed in an agony of terror: ''o mine frow ! Pm snake bite _! I'm killed 1 0 mine Cot I" But his little bit of a wife, standing a kimbo in the middle of the floor, burst into a fit of laughter so uncontrollable, that she was likely to suffocate, and thus beat her husband in dying. The poor man, in his alarm, had endeavored to put on hie little boy's vest, and was not swollen at all, except " in the mind." Many a mother feels fretted and jad ed and worn out with the cares of house. keeping and ie almost sick. But at the moment a wejeome visitor comes in, full of life and cordiality and cheeriness, and in less than five minutes that mother is a different woman; the sky has cleared; the face is lighted up with smiles ; and she feels as well as she ever did in her life. Her discouragement, her almost sickness was not " in the mind," it was a reality, but, the excitement of conver sation drove out the wearying •blood, which was oppressing the heart, and wade it fairly tingle to the finger points. 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 tors. Most persons have a variety of 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 you are grumpy, bounce up, go ahead, and do something.—. Dr. Ball. OLD AND NEW.—"Wbat do the Arabs of the desert live on, pa ?" asked a rogu ish girl of her father. " Fudge, Nelly, that's an old conundrum. They live on the sand which is (sandwiches) there." "Yes, but pa, bow do they get 'em ?" " Well, really, Nelly, you hate me there. I give it up." "Why, pa, you know that the 'sons of Ham tire bred and mustered in the wilderness ?" "Come, come, my daughter, that is•too killing ; don't say another word." "Oh, yes, do tell me what they eat on their sandwiches ?" " Eat on 'em ; why what do they eat on 'em ?" " Butter, to be sure." " Butter ! How do they get their butter ?" " Why you know, pa, that when Lot's wife was turned into a pillar dealt, ' all the fam. ily but her ran into the wilderness.' " ar A family remedy, "Coe's Cough Balsam." These have become house hold words with very many families, and the merits of`the article justly entitle it to our confidence and patronage. The originator does not claim to be a physi ciao, but has evidently hit upon a pre scription that meets the wants of a large class of sufferers. Some are testifying that it has actually cured them of con sumption. It is no doubt the consump tive's best friend, while for coughs, hoarseness, and kindred• troubles; we think it has no equal. We predict for it a world-wide repittatton and extensive sale. er A writer in the Western Recor der says.: " In a Southern State, I learn that -there is one preacher who has charger of foto-churches, edits a newspa per, is ,President of a -Female. Colltge, runs several peddler wagons, keeps up a farm, and owns several patent . rights which he farms out." 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 asked : " Do you know G—'s place up your way ?" " Know . it I Yaae, guess I do,; lives 'thin two miles o' my place. Dreffie shiftless critter, tho' ; hadn't got much of anything on his farm except a heavy mortgage, Goia' to sell him out putty 500n,.1 guess." "Indeed l" said the werehant,thought fupy ; "mismanaged, I suppose—don't attend to his business. Splendid piece of laud, though, is it not?" "Waal, might be for some , purposes; our s'lectmen did think of buying it once for a cemetery, but the idle was so orful poor and sandy that nothing ever came up that was planted in it, and they were afraid there'd never be any resurrection there !" THE PEESENT..--801118 people are al ways wishing themselves somewhere but where they are, or thinking of something else than what they are doing, or of somebody else to whom they are speak ing. This is the way to enjoy nothing 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. ' air That was good advice given by the President of a State Agricultural Society, on presenting a silver cup to a young man who had won the first prize at a plowing match: " Take this cup, my 'young friend, and remember always to plow deep aid' drink shallow." ' ear Two young men in Troy, N. Y., went t 6 serenade a lady of their acquaint ance one night last week, and had just' commenced singing "Oft in the Stilly Night," when the lady's fathdr raised the - saga, and threw hot water upon tkem . "Slumber's chains" didn't "bind to the spot any longer. 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 closure of the money, and it was only on an examination of her effects it was found. i A white man in St. Louis became enraged at a negro the other day, and was about to strike him with a brickbat, when the colored man fell back on re served rights ;—" Look here, white man, don't you strike me wid dat ar rock ; don't you do it, ear.
