A TEST OF FRIENDSHIP. ^ One,ofJ;he = first settlers in/Western=New York was Judge W , who established hjm^lf^^White8tone ,_about-four_ miles from Utica. He brought his family with him, among whom was a widowed daughter with one child—a fine boy only four years old. The country around was an unbroken forest, and this was the dominion of the savage tribes. Judge W saw the neeesity of keeping on good terms with the Indians, for, as he was nearly alone, he was completely at their mercy. Accordingly he took every opportunity to assure them of his kindly feeling, and to secure their good will in return. Several nf the r tiiefe came to see him, and all appeared pacific. But there was one thing that troubled him ; an aged chief of the Oneida tribe, and one of great influence, who resided at a distance of a dozen miles, had not been to see him, nor could he ascertain the views and feelings of the sachem in respect to his settlement in that region. At lost he sent in a message, and th...

Elegiac Lines [Several years' since, a distressing occurence took place which was published at that tune. A Mrs. Blake, of. Salem, M. Y., who, with herhusbund and child, had set out on a visit' to Vermont, passing over the Green mountains, in crossing which, the snow was found to be deep and pathless, and the weather extremely cold. Having rode till they nearly perished with cold, they attempted to exercise themselves in walking. Mr. B., who had proceeded on in haste, in order to search some dwelling for assistance, soon became exhausted, and sunk down in a perishing condition, but afterward recovered. Mrs. Blake, in the course of the night, froze to death, leaving her tender offspring wrapped up in her cloak in which situation it was found the next morning alive. The following elegant lines from the Eastern Argus were written on the occasion, and we now re-publish them.] The,cold winds swept the mountain's height And pathless was the dreary wild, And 'mid the cheerless hour...

Thomas Buchanan Read The following ia from the correspondent of ^ the Boston Advertiser , writing from Some, and gives quite an' interesting account of America's favorite author and artist: Buchanan Bead, the painter poet, is another remarkable man in the Roman art circle. He divides his time also between his two pursuits. Bead, unlike most literary men, is an early riser. He goes to bed betimes, and is awake always with the birds. At 4 o'clock, summer and whiter, he is at his de3k; writes until 7 and then breakfast and goes to his studio. In the wintor he paints all day, returns home at dark to dine, his wife reads aloud to him until nine o'clock, when he goes to bed. At the head of-his bed, fastened to the wall, is a huge slate at least three feet square; a pencil hangs oh a cord beside it. In the) night—for Bead is a light sleeper—this slatii is at hand to usefur quick passing fancies and thoughts. His wife copied from it for me,,the other day, the new verse which Read ha...

Dyeing and Wishing. A SHORT PLAIN STOKY. A ,lady refused to be introduced to a gentleman last evening at Congress Hall, and no amount of urging could induce her to change her mind. "What are your reasons for not wanting an introduction ?" urged a friend. "Because he wears a paper collar and dyes his moustache," replied the lady; "and I never knew a thorough gentleman to do either." The lady was very near the truth. A dyed moustache is a foul thing—as foul as a cigar in_the_nionth of a Venus-;-and a paper collar is an evasion of the laundry as culpable as the lady's who chose colored crockery because it would not show dirt. About dyeing the hair black, I will al-80_8ay_a_wordJLight-hair-make8-the eyes look brilliant by contrast. So, by.-and-by, when the eyes becomes dimmed by age, God paints the hair white, and the dimness of the eye is unperceived. Look at a man or woman with dyed hair! The eye is as dead as that of a sleeping ox.— And still these sily people think they are dece...

The Sea of Galilee What the traveler will see when he catches his first eager glimpse of the liim pid sheet of water will be a small ovalshaped lake thirteen miles long and six broad. It is evidently of volcanic origin, and the earth-quakes which have rent the walls of Tiberias, as well as the hot springs at several places in the vicinity of the lake, show that volcanic agencies are still at work. All along the eastern side runs a green plain, which, except at one spot (the probable scene of destruction of the swine after the healing of the Gadarene demoniac) is every where about a quarter to a half mile in width.—Beyond this rises, to the heighth of 2,000 feet, an escarpment of deasoiate looking hills, scor¬ ed by various ravines, and having a plateau at the top. As there are neither trees nor villages to be seen on that side and no signs of cultivation, the view in that direction has a certain monotony, but, this is atoned for by the air of mystery derived from its very de...

The Wages of Royalty. Royalty is, perhaps, the best business going, regarded from a peculiary standpoint The salaries of Emperors and Kings are for thejnoafe part liberal, and no deduetk>n"£-madeon account of absence from duty. - ¦ . The Czar of Russia has the most profitable berth, his wages averaging $25,000 per day, or 365 times as much as President Grant receives. The Sultan of Turkey struggles along at $18,000 per day. How he can do it, with his large family, and the inevitable enormous dry goods bills—is not easy to understand. Louis Napoleon, last September, lost a place that paid him $14,000 per day; but he has been prudent, and lias saved up something handsome, which will keep him comtAwfn UIa **% nin **1 n n **n Alfl^**4 &l« «^ maw ^4" WAV *W* VMM*W »U uw V*U C*^V* I * JU*V K**F V* Emperor William, of Germany may be, we don't know; but as King of Prussia, he was paid only $8,210 per day, or $3,-000,000 per year.

Immensity of Creation. Some astronomers have computed that there are no less than 75,000,000 suns in the universe. The fixed stars are all suns and have, like our sun, numerous planets revolving around them. The solar system, or that to which we belong, has about thirty planets, primary and secondary, belonging to it. The circular field of space which it occupies is in the diameter 3,600,000,000 of miles, and that which it controls is much greater. That sun which is nearest neighbor to ours is called Sirious, distant from our sun 22,000,000,-000 of miles. Now if all the fixed stars are as distant from each other as Sirious is from oar sun, and if the solar system of the 7.5,000,000 of suns, what imagination can grasp the immensity of creation ? Every sun of the 75,000,000 of suns, controls a field of space of about 10,000, 000 of miles in diameter. Who can survey a plantation, containing 75,000,000 circular fields, each of them 10,000,000 miles in diameter ? Such, however ^ is o...

£tUtt $otti% NO TIME BOB HA1E Begone with fend! away with strife, Oar human hearts unmatyig ; Let us be friends again, since life Is all top short for hating. So.dull the day, so dim the way, So_rQU£h-the-road-we?re-faring-; Far better wend with faithful friend Than stalk alone, uncaring. The barren fig, the withered vine, Are types of selfish Jiving, But souls that give, li&fcrthine and mine, • Renew their life by giving, While cypress waves o'er early graves, On all the way we'er going, Far better plant where seed is scant —Than-crnsh-the'fruit" that's erowiug". Away with scorn! since die we must, And rest on one low pillow; There are no rivals in the dust, Ho foes beneath the willow. So dry the bowers, so few the flowers Our weary path discloses ; Far better stop where daisies, droop Than trample, ov«r roses! ¦ O, what are all the joys we hold, Compared to joys above us ? And what are rank, and power, and gold, Against the hearts that love us ? So fleet our year...

A Singular Indian Tradition. Among Siminole Indians there is a singular tradition regarding the white man's origin and superiority. They say that when the Great Spirit made the earth he also made three men. Air of the men had fair complexions; and that after making them he led them to the margin of a small lake, and bade them leap in and wash. One obeyed, and came out purer andfairer than before; the second hesitated a moment, during which the water, agitated by the first, had become muddled, and when he bathed he came out copper-colored; .the third did not leap till the water had become black with mud, and he came out black with its own color. The Great Spirit laid before them three packages, and out of pity for his misfortune in color gave the black man the first choice. He took hold of each package, and having felt the weight, chose the heaviest The copper-colored man chose the next heaviest, leaving the white man the lightest When the packages were opened, the first was foun...

An-Unpleasant Dilemmas—The".& veningJournal, of Jersey City, is responsible for the following: The other day a lady and gentleman were walking along Exchange Place on their way to the ferry,, when suddenly and unaccountably the lady stopped.— She flushed her face, trembled violently, and. then resorted to that happy femare expedient, crying. "Why my dear Lousia, what on earth is the matter with you ?" exclaimed her companion. "Oh dear me, what shall I do ? I can't fix it." The crowd surged by; some looking in amasement, while others stopped for an instant gazing at the crying lady and bewildered gentleman. "Why, .Louisa, what is the matter ? Let us move on and not raise this crowd here" "Oh, no indeed I can't, oh, what shall I do? What a fix I'm in!" "The gentleman evidently felt as.if he too, was in a truly pretty fix. • What was he to do ? "Tell me, Lousia, what does icil you?" Just then a boot black came along and offered the desired information. "I say. mum, you'd ...
