From (he Louisville Journal To an Absent Husband. We are sure that a husband, so beautifully and toucliingly. appealed to, trill fly homo upon the wings of love. Dearest, come home ! I cannot bear Thy Iong--protractcd stay, ; f ¦ So sad and lonely is my heart When thou art gone away. I've tried, alas! how vainly tried, Thine absence to forget, Yet still I can but think of thee With fondness and regret. As mourns the gentle, cooing dove, In accents desolate, When forqed by some unkindly hand Far from her loving mate—• So through the chambers of my heart Echoes a mournful tone. Whilst every pulse affection beats. Re-echoes," I'm alone." Things that are bright when thou art here, Look dark and gloomy now, And nature seems to share my grief With clouds upon her brow. . The bird sings now a sadder song Than e'er he sang before, ' And flowers have lost the sunny hue They once so sweetly wore. To wile the weary hours away, That lag with Isaden feet, I read thy favorite authors o'...

THE FATAL. JOKE. gtlttt miztillnnv. DT HELEN M. GAGE. I was once present—where a small party of young persons were warmly discussing the subject of practical joking. After, a long and interesting debate, the question seemed about to be decided in its favor, when a gentleman, whose singularly melancholy and dejected-air at once attracted our attention, related the following story :i " la my younger days I was remarkable for my fondness for practical joking, even to~such a degree that I never allowed a good opportunity to pass unimprpved. " My orphan cousin, Robert, to whom I was fondly attached, was of a different nature from this, He was sober, sedate, and grave almost to a fault, very thoughtful and very bashful. This stupidity, as I called it, was often a check upon my natural gaiety, and it was seldom that I could induce him to join my boyish sports, though he sometimes'did, merely to gratify me. Poor Robert ! the green turf of .his native valley,on whose bosom the faires...

A Farmer^ Life The Hon. Joseph R^ Williams has recently delivered an address before the Michigan State Agricultural Society, at Ann Arbor, which .is distinguished by the soundness of its ^ views no less than by the perspicuity with' which they are. advanced, Wc sincerely wish that we could afford room, consistently with our engagements, for the whole of this sterling production ; but being unable to do so, we present to our readers ah extract from it devoted to a consideration of the farmer's calling. It is as follows: " A farmer should not consider it prosumption, but a duty to gladden his home with all true, and genial, nnd intrinsically valuable comforts, that shed a glow and attractiveness around the private home of the citizen. He can make it more inviting. There are few comforts and appliances about the home of a townsman which a countryman cannot enjoy. There are a thousand pleasures around a country residence, which all the capital of a city cannot buy. A farmer surv...

m%y bis Family A man falls into embarrassment, which ultimately overwhelm him In bankruptcy or drive him into roguery and crime. He was yesterday respected, influential and supposed to be affluent, and hisfamily were treated and treated themselves accordinoly • but to-day he is disgraced add steered clcaV off—without resources or prospect—very likely in prison and exposed to Ignominious punishment. "Vile wretch," say the mil-Iran; "it is good enough for'iiirr i, but we must pity his poor family." Certainly, we must pity them—pity all who saner; still more all who sin and suffer. They need ptty, and there is no danger that we shall pity them too much. But the impression conveyed of the innocence of the fallen man's family and their unmerited exposure to want and ignominy, is often very far from the truth. In fact, half the men who arejpathed as dragging down their famines to shame and destitution, are really themselves'dragged down by those families driven to bankruptcy, sham...

Consolation The great philosopher Gitophilus said one day to a lady oppressed by grief for a heavy misfortune, " Madame, the Queen of England, daughter of Henry the Great, was as unfortunate as yourself.. She was chased from her kingdom, she nearly perished in a storm at sea, and she saw her royal husband expire on a scaffold." "I am sorry for her," said the lady, who continued to shed tears over her own misfor tunes. " But," said Gitophilus, " recollect Mary Stuart; she loved—but in nil honor—a very handsome musician. Her husband slew him before her eyes, and afterwards her good friend and relation. Queen Elizabeth, caused her head to be cut off on a scaffold hung with black, after having.kept her in prison for eighteen years." " That was very cruel," answered the lady, relapsing into melancholy. "You have perhaps heard," said the comforter," of the beautiful Joanna of Naples, who was taken and strangled T" " I have a confused recollection of It," ans wered the mourner, "...

Smoky Days iu Autumn A correspondent says: "I am sure the atmosphere 6f>>ur American. Autumn has become more clear and transparent than it was thirty oi-forty, or even twenty years since. Then we had long intervals of smoky weather in Autumn, the whole air suffused with a soft haze which took a warm golden hue in the sunshine. Sometimes, too, if I recollect aright, the atmosphere was filled with an odor as of burnt leaves' or herbage. In a great measure, I have no doubt that this smoky appearance must have been caused by fires in the woods, sometimes accidentally kindled at that dry season of the year, by' fires made by the settlers in clearing (heir land among the vast tracts of heavy forest lying to the west of the older settlements, and by fires kindled by the Indians and write hunters in the immense grassy prairies west of the Ohio. Ft was the common practice of the hunters of that country which now forms the Western States, to set fire to the dry rank herbag...

Oar Congressional Delegation. Great rejoicings have been indulged by the Locofbco press over the fact that the Pennsylvania delegation in the next Congress will stand 15 Locofocos to 9 Whigs. The Whigs have two or three more than it was intended they should have when the present apportionment was made by the gerrymandering legislature of 1843. But f^g>^ W^?:^kB,^^^%{l^^nC^^t majority on the Congressional vote is only 6,132, according to their own showing, in which they include the vote given for all three of their candidates in one district where they run that many." Now, does any honest man believe that a fair apportionment would give one party 15 members to 9 for the other, with an aggregate majority of only 6,132 in the State? A fair apportionment would of course give each party a number of members corresponding to its popular vote ; and in such case the Whigs would be entitled to at least 11 or 12 members. Jn fact, when we consider the impossibility of districting...

Frazer and Cameron. It is generally rumored in political circles that Col. Frazer and Gen. i Cameron have formed a treaty for the purpose of advancing their respective interests:—the one seeking the U. S. Senate, and the other the Gubernatorial chair. Some confirmation of this alleged «> holy alliance" is found in the Lancaster Intelligencer, in a' letter from John W. Forney, replying to an article in tho Lancastrian, in which Mr. F. says: " The direction of, Simon Cameron's movement in Dauphin, in having a resolution in favor of Bigler laid upon the table, at a County Convention _and the recent intrigue against him in Lancaster county show that Col. Bigler's enemies understand each other. If any further proof of this, were needed, the studied silence of the Lancasterian for months, on the Cameron movement, would be sufficient.' One ofthe consequences of the opposition to Mr. Buchanan, in Lancaster, seems fo be, a fraternization between.Cameron himself, and the men who ...

Verification of a Dream. . Just two weeks ago, last Saturday; night, says the Boston Transcript, a young lady residing in Hanover st., in this city, retired to bed at her: usual hoUr, and in her usual cheerful, happy frameof mind. After having fallen asleep, she had a frightful dream or vision. She dreamed that her brother, who was in the western part of New; York, was killed, and his body horribly mangled in death. This-dream seemed so vivid and real, and impressed her. mind.so forcible, that she woke, and even rose from her bed, and walked her room; weeping in great anguish. Another lady, who was asleep in an ad joining chamber, was -awakened by her wailings, and, on going into the room to ascertain the cause, found her silting in a chair weeping. The lady endeavored, to soothe her fears, and finally persuaded her lo retire once more to bed, and try to forget the dream. The next Monday morning the young lady received a telegraphic despatch, announcing that her brother, Mr....
