Tell me not that he's a poor man,
That his dress is coarse and bare;
Tell me not his daily . pittance
Is a workman's scanty fare.
Tell me not his birth is humble,
That his perentage is low ;:
Is he honest in his action?
That is all I want to know.
Is his word to be relied on ?
• Has his character no blame?
Then I care not if he's low born—
Then I care not whence his came.
Would:he from an unjust action
Turn away with scornful eye ?
Would he, then, defraud another?
Sooner on the scaffold die.
Would he spend his hard gained earnings
On a brotherin distress?
Would he succor the afflicted
And the weak one's wrongs redress?
Then he is a man deserving
Of my love and my esteem,
And I care not what his birth place
In the eyes of man may seem.
Let it be a low thatched hovel—
Let it be a clay built cot—
Let it be the parish work-house—
In my eye it matters not,
And if others will disown him,
Am inferior to their caste,
Let them do it-- I'll befriend him
As a brother to the last.
ANECDOTE OF ADMIRAL FARRAGIIT..--
When Admiral Farragut was ten years
of age, his father, then an officer of rank
in the United States navy, and high in
the estimation of the Government, said
in his son's hearing, that when he ( the
boy) was old enough to make a contract
and keep it, belied a bargain to offer
him. The son rose up and asked his
father to state the terms of the contract.
The Admiral said : " The proposal that
I iotend'to make is this, If you will not
smoke nor chew tobacco, drink intoxica
ting drinks Bar strong wines, till you are
21 years of age, I will then give you
$1000." "I am old enough to make
that bargain now," said young Farragut.
" I will accept the offer?' The bargain
was closed. And on the statement of
young Farragut's majority, the cash was

HAPPY, -EVERY DAY.—Sydney Smith
cut the following from a newspaper and
preserved it for himself:-" When you
rise in the morning, form a resolution to
make the day a . happy one to a fellow
creature. It is easily done ; a left-off
garment to the man who needs it, a kind
word to the sorrowful, an encouraging
expression to the striving—trifles in
themselves light as air—will do it, at
least for the twenty-four hours. And if
yon are young, depend upon it, it will
tell when you are old ; and if you are
old, rest assured it will send you gently
and happily down the stream of time to
eternity. By the most simple arithmet
ical sum, look at the result. If you send
one person, only one, happily through
the day; that is three hundred and sixty
five in the course of the year. And
supposing.yon live forty years only after
you commence that course of medicine,
you have made 14,600 beings happy ; at
all events, for alime."
A DEVOUT DINNER.—W a have heard
of having a piano for tea, but a German
paper of Philadelphia, gives , the follow
ing about a hymn book for dinner :
"On Sunday last, one of our German
housewives, in her hurry to get ready for
church, forgot to put the bacon into the
pot of sauerkrout, which forms their
usual Sunday dinner, and is generally
left boiling during the hours of service.
" Not until the last ringing of the bells
for church did our good dame think of
this mistake, when she hastened to .‘he
pantry, cut down a good slice of bacon,
took it under her arm, put the hymn
book in the pot of kraut, and hastened
to her devotions.
" We have not heard how the husband
relished his dinner."

"That's nothing to our corn," replied

each stalk, and a peck of shelled corn
hanging to each tassel ; but _we never
could raise any field beans with it."

" Revolution in the manufacture of
infantry fire-arms has fairly begun. Like
other great changes, it has required
time for its inception ; but it is now act
ually started, and promises to be sweep
ing and thorough. Governments are
proverbially sluggish in the adoption of
innovations. But prejudice has been
at last overcome, and only the recent
achievement at Koniggratz was needed
to rouse all Europe from its lethargy,
and open the eyes of the world to a fall
appreciation of the last great improve
ment in fire arms.
Though Prussia has been the first to
effect an entire radical change in her
small arms, and to demonstrate to
world its advantage, yet it is due our
own Government to have the credit of
fostering that special improvement,
which secures the consummation of enc
odes in this direction. More than a year
ago, our Government organized a com
mission to inveetigate - the subject Of
breech-loading arms, and report upon
the merits of such specimens as might
be presented for examination. The ex
periments were continued for many
months, with a great variety of guns.
The report . of the deliberations of that
commission has not yet been made pub
lic, but it cannot be doubted by those
who are acquainted with the trials made
that the new Remington breech loading
rifle will be approved as the moat effect
ive weapon of the kind , that has yet been
Since that time, as fast as samples
could be procured, similar trials of this
gun have been in progress in several of
the countries of Europe ; thus far with
but one result—the most favorable.
In these trials, the desiderata are, of
course, extent of range, portability, du
rability, accuracy, safety and conveni
ence of handling in action, simplicity
and cheapness of construction, and final
ly, capacity for the most rapid firing.
The superiority in other respects being
easily established, and in most cases
readily conceded, competition has been
attempted almost solely in respect to
the rapidity of firing. And here 'again,
the success is most triumphant. In
none of the public trials is its rate of
firing quoted at less than thirteen shots
per minute, while in the hands of an
adept it has oftener exceeded sixteen
shots per minute. In the report just
received of a recent trial in England, it
is stated that " the Remington gud was
fired 41 times in less than three minutes
while the Spencer gun was fired only 26
times in the same space of time."
( Morever, it is to be noted that the use
of the Remington gun is not attended
with the dangers and disadvantages of a
magazine in the breech, which is neces
sary to the Spencer gun.) But, more
important than all hitherto, is the last
news from Austria. The Vienna cor
respondent of the London Times says :
Linder & Remington will have the hon
or of seeing their system tried in actual
combat ;" and mach more, to the effect
that Austria's decision is not doubtful;
also that "all the resources of private
and public works are to be taxed for
the supply of these new descriptions of
firearms." Confirmatory of the above,
we learn that Messrs. E. Remington &
Sons, of Ilion, have just received a dis
patch by the Atlantic cable, saying
Austria has adopted the Remington
arm, France impatient for the arrival of
the sample guns ordered. Apropos to
this, we learn that the samples for
France have probably by this time just
reached their destination, while the ad
ditional guns ordered by England are
also now ready for shipment. The Min
ister of War of Belgium has applied for
authority to manufacture Arms in that
Cotintry under the Remington Patent.
Thus all betokens the eventual adoption
of this gun as the standard arm - of the
The peculiar feature of novelty in this
invention consists in the application of
