I have a pleasant little wife
Who nothing, nothing lacks ;
She keeps herself and things about
The house as neat as wax.
Antr:everything, and woman's taste,
Stems placed expressly for
The pleasures of a nip who long
Has lived a bachelor.
Her handkerchiefs are white as milk,
Her skirts as white as snow,
Her slippered,feet are small and neat,
And always "on the go."
She,floats about as if up borne
On gum elastic springs,
Or some unseen mysterious power,
With undiscovered wings."
Her glossy hair is deepest brown,
Her eyes are softest dark,
And from their loving depths shoot forth
Full many a cheerful spark;
Her eyes send speeding on their flight
The soft-winged rosy hours,
And what was once my ,iarksome way
Is radiant now with flowers.
My linen has a glossy white,
More pure than ever shone
On Parian marble, and what's more,
There's ne'er a button gone: '
She knits my stockings, makes my shirts,
And darns up all'my rents,
And saves me half of what was once
My bachelor's expense.
Now all you crusty bachelors,
With life's great battle sore,
Go get a wife and settle down,
And play the fool:no more.
Don't bey too nice—they're angels all—
With loving hearts and true,
The secret is, be kind to them,
And they'll be kind to you.
A BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO A
was guided in my choice only by the
blind affections of my youth. I found
an intelligent companion and a tender
friend, a prudent ;Tlonitress, the most
faithful of wives, and a mother as tender
as children ever had the misfortune to
lose„ I met a woman who, by tender
management of my weaknesses, gradual
ly corrected the most pertinacious of
them c She became prudent froM affec
tion ; and though of the most generous
nature, she was taught frugality and
economy by her love for me. During
the most critical period of my life, she
relieved me, she gently reclaimed the
from dissipation ; prbpped my weak and
irresolute nature; she urged my indo
lence to all the exertions that have been
useful and creditable to me, and she was
always at hand to admonish my heedless
ness or improvide9ce. To her I owe
whatever I am ; t6her whatever I shall
be. In her solicitude for my interest
she never for a moment forgot my feel
ings or character. Even in her occasion
al resentment, for which I but to often
gave her cause ( would to God I could
recall those moments I) she had no sul
lenness nor acrimony. Her feelings
were warm, nay, impetuous; but she
was placable, tender and constant.
Such was she whom I have lost, when I
her excellent natural sense was rapidly
improving ; eight years struggle and
distress had bound us fast together and
moulded our tempers to each other;
when a knowledge of her worth had re
fined my youthful love into friendship,
and before age had deprived it of much
of its original ardor. I lost her, alas
the choice of my youth, the partner of
my misfortunes, at a moment when I
bad the prospect of her shifting. my bet

Vice when clad in the attire of virtue
is warmly received, and kindly domiciled
by those who would thrust it from their
thresholds, if it sought admission in its
undisguised character. Evil customs
are suffered to become woven into our
very being through the prevailing habit
of embracing the opinions of those who
are regarded as holding a position in so
ciety. Ideas are accepted as truths ;
simply because they are overhung with
the cobwebs of centuries, although their
truths, like the merits of the wine bear
ing date half way between the Penn
Treaty, and the present moment, lies
only in the traditions and superstitions
of ages more ignorant and corrupt than
the present, such ages as - made Galileo

Man boasts that wine is one of God's
good gifts to his creatures, and fortifies
this opinion uponthe antiquity of :its
use, while God emphatically declares in
his word, that, "Wine is a mocker and
be that is deceived thereby ie not wise."
Which then is true, man's assumption
or God's declaration. Man says drink
of it and if poor, poverty will take wings
and fly away. if weak, drink and you
will become strong. If despondent, it
will make you cheerful. If conscience
scourged, wine will soothe it and make

mourned for loved ones, whom you edu
cated at your own festive boards or in
the family circle, into the body and soul
distroying belief that wine affords
strength, and they went forth to buffet
the world's vicissitudes with this ensnar
ing falsehood engraven upon their mem
ories as though it was a great truth, and
only discovered it to be a terrible error
when the waves of immediate drunken
ness was surging over them.
Is it not a mocker? Answer ye, who
(confiding in the advise of those, who
should be learned in human physiology
and pathology) were directed to seek
relief from bodily debility in the stimu
lus of Wine, bitter memory recalls its
enchanting effects while in allaying the
discomforts of indigestion it was stealth-
ily corroding the powers of life, and lay
ing debp the foundations for an MlMl
trollatie thirst for strong drink, that in
turn deame a consuming fire that never
could ge entirely extinguished.
Does it'not mock with Seeming healtd
while Wisaffording disease a more dead

dement the brain and induce the com
mission of imprudence and wickedness
that returning sobriety is deeply cha
grined at? (Who that has sought
through sparkling wine exhilarations of
spirits in the social circle, has not after
wards suffered the punishment of offend
ed nerves, through a torpid brain, and
aching temples as the result of self
abuse. Wine that has not dissolved its
health affording properties by fermenta
tion, is like all other nourishments, a
blessing to mankind, and as such Unfer
mented Wine is recognized,• and com
mended in Scripture. Such wine was in
general use prior to and during the
Apostolic age. Historians of that peri

of wine, by denoting the one as good And
olesome, and the other as bad and in
jurious, to the present generation has
been transmitted chiefly the use of the
latter. The wine that is generated in
rottenness, and abounds in that poison
ous p - roperty (Alcohol) that is reaping
its annual harvests of human life by tens
of-thousands. Its virtues are but the
trickery of the sorcerer It flatters, to
madness, then blights and destroys. It
mocks at human infirmity, to consume
the invalid's vitality, It unbridles the
passion and makes its victims yield, ra
ttier to the grossness of appetite, than
to the warning voice of God, who has
set an uncompromising boundary be
tween the substances that sustain life
and those that destroy it, a boundary
that no earthly power can change, hum

Balm for the Sleepless.
In the first place, we will suppose a
person moderately sleepless. He tosses
and tumbles about'; turns first on one
Bide and then on the other ; shifts the
pillow; pulls the bedclothes over his
shoulders'; draws his knees up to his ab
domen ; places his right arm under his
kead—in short, exhausts the resources
usually put in requisition on these occas
ions, and yet has failed to proctire na
ture's sweet restorer—balmy sleep.
What is then to be done?
Rabelais tells a story of some monks,
who oPpressed with wakefulness, reso
lutely addressed themselves to prayer,
and before they had concluded' half a
dozen ayes, -or paternosters, we forget
which, they all fell asleep. Mazniskre
panted some lines of poetry; Sir John
Sinclair counted ; and Franklin took his
air bath—that is walked about his cham
ber "sans culottes." All these resources
seem at times to hove prodused the de--
.sired effect, bat never to have been al
ways successful. The following plan
has never failed, so far as we are aware,
but in two instances.
We then suptiose all these attempts
have failed, and the patient—for he is
indeed a "sufferer" who cannot sleep—
Let him turn on his right side, place
his head comfortably on the pillow, so
that it exactly occupies the angle a line
drawn from the head to the, shoulderi3
would form, and then, slightly closing
his lips, take rather a full inspiration,
breathing. as much as he posibly can
through the nostrils. This, however, is
not &bsolutely, necessary, as some per
sons breathe always through their
mouths during sleep, and rest as well as
those who do not. Having taken a full
inspiratibn, the lungs are then to be left
to their own action—that is, the respi
ration is neither to be accelerated nor
retarded. The attention• must now be
fixed upon the action which the pa=
tient is engaged. He must depict to him
self that le sees the breath passing from
his nostrils in a continuous stream, anb
the very instant that he brings his mind
to conceive this apart from all other We
' as, consciousness and memory depart—
imagination srumbers—fancy becomes
pormant, though subdued—the sentient
faculties lose their susceptibility—the
vital ganglionic system assumes the
sovereignty—and, as we before remarked,
he no longer wakes, but sleeps.
The train of phenOmena is bat, the ef
fort of a moment. The instant the mind
is brought to the contemplation of a
single sensation, that instant the sensor
ium abdicates the thione, and the hyp
on tic faculty steeps it in oblivion.
Sponging the_body before retiring to
rest, whether in winter or summer, and
rubbing the surface afterward with a
coarse towel, are preliminary steps which
conduce much to - sound repOse. .
