Little at First, but Mighty at Last BY CHARLES MACKAT. A traveler through a dusty .road Strewed acorns on the lea. And one took root, and sprouted up, And grew into a tree.:) j liovesought its shade at'evening time, To breathe its early vows, j ' And Age was pleased, in heats of noon, f To bask beneath its boughs, The dormouse loved its dangling twigs, ' Tile birds sweet music bore, It stood a glory in its place,' A blessing evermore! A little spring had lost its way - ; Amid the grass and fern; A passing stranger scoop'd a well; Where weary men might turn, He Vall'd it in, and hung with care A ladle at the brink—He thought not of tho deed he did, Bat judg'd that toil might drink. He pass'd again—and lo! the well, By summers never dried, Had cooled ten thousand parching tongues, And saved a lifeucside ! A dreamer dropp'd a random thought; 'Twas-old, and yet was peW—A simple fancy of the brain,. But strong in being true ;. It shone upon a genial mind, And lo! its light beca...

The Heroine of Wheeling f^istoticat Sb&?tt3 Though we may sing of, and tell about, the hardy men who fought so ArjaVely and suffered so greatly to establish the principles of that government under" which we, now exist, we must not forget those heroic tvomen who, as mothers and wives',"set forth with eager hearts and cheering words, their sons and husbands, to the bitter Md of strife, or as sisters, aiding to clothe and equip their brothers. Their aching hearts were silent; their burning fears were brushed away, as with smilns they! embraced them at parting, and with !high word^. of trustful faith, like the women of Sparta, bade them to turn 'not the bacty upon the conquering foe. The words ofrall ages-bear no slight testimony to the devoted courage of woman ; and were our own history more perfectly known, instances of female courage would be found to parallel the most Wonderful of ancient chronicles. We have .now to record an act performed by a young woman during o...

The Lord's Prayer . BY JAS. A. BENNETT, L.L.O. Our Father dear, who art in heav'n, lo whom all glory should be given, " Hallowed "be thy Name ! O! let thy glorious Kingdom come; And may thy gracious will be done, In earth and heav'n the same. Give us this day our daily bread, That we may in thy statutes tread, And be our debts forgiv'n; As we forgive our fellow men The debts that wev might claim of them ; And guide us safe to heav'n. Let not temptation set a snare That we can't overcome by pray'r, From evil make us free—The Kingdom, Power, and Glory, then, Are thine—for which we say, Amen, And give our souls to Thee!

Bridal Quarrels Stmt imsctllanfl A trifling disagreement about a trifling matter may destroy a life of enjoyment. And -It usually happens that when the married pair do quarrel, the occasion is so despicable, they are ashamed to think of it. Yet that silly circumstance, like a drop of ink discoloring a whole vessel of water, often spreads its influence over the whole life. Just as " A pebble in the streamlet scant, Has turned the course of many a river ; A dew-drop on the baby plant, Has warped thcr giant oak forever." I find an exceedingly painful illustration of these ideas in an English publication, for tho truth of which its author pledges his word. A young couple had passed the first weeks of their marriage at the house of a friend. Having at length occupied their new home, they were taking their first breakfast, when the following scene occurred : - The young husband was innocently opening a boiled egg in an egg-cup. The .bride observed that he was breaking the shell ...

Temperance Mothers, in summing-up the thousand responsibilities which.attach to your high calling, think for a moment and ask yourselves if you sufficiently press upon the minds of your children the importance of this particular virtue, temperance. Perhaps 1 should do better lo use the words "total abstinence," for a child cannot too ea"rly imbibe a deadly hatred towards all kinds of alcoholic stimulants, and a dislike even to behold them. Too much eare cannot be exercised in this important particular; many mothers totally abstain from the beVerage, never allowing it in their presence as one of the household things, yet the subject is rarely mentioned in -the presence of the little ones, and they grow up in ignorance of the miseries caused by this monster fiend, and therefore, unsuspecting and inexperienced.Yall an easy prey to those wretches whose delight is in tho ruin of the good.

Govern lotir Temper A difficult thing it is for hot-headed people lo govern their tempers at all times, and under severe provocations. But no man can be truly great' *who doesn't keep his combativeness fenced in. An excellent recipe for coolness and equanimity, is to pre-* serve an uniformly subdued voice and an easy deportment—to exclude, entirely, fretful thoughts, frowning brows and ferocious gratings of the teeth, though the fountains of wrath within be ever so much " riled." A navy regulation forbids any seaman from entering a ship's power magazine with a knife, key, or similar article in his pocket, or about his person, or with nails in his shoes, or metal buttons on his clothes.— Bolt the door of your heart with half this care against wolfishness, in its varied disguises of sheep's clothing, and you need cherish no fears of getting into a " blow up.' " He that ruleth his spirit is better than he that Jaketh a city," says the wise man. And fnere is certainly a " heap" ...

Whereof he Silver. Goes. The exportations of specie from New York to foreign ports, for seven months and a half past—that is from July T, 1850, lo Feb/t4, 1*851,1 amounted to 69,375,505. Of this the aggregate exportation of silver was some five millions and a half. For the last two months the exportations have been chiefly of silver, and within the last two weeks more than a quarter of a million in American half dollars alone were sent out. The New York Herald says that in consequence of the scarcity of small silver coin, nearly all the eating-houses and saloons in that cjlyare now issuing shinplasiers for sums ranging from six cents up to half a dollar. Some of them are done on . simple cards; others on bank-note paper, in tho form of bills, and beautifully engraved. Unlike our locofoco friends, we go for an abundance .of money—because when money is plenty nobody need be in want; we prefer to have good money rather than bad, loo, when we can get it—but we would take a dolla...

Plank Roads. We commend the. following extract from a treatise upon plank roads, to the notice of the farmers and businessmen of our county. It is taken from a work entitled " The History, Structure and Statistics of Plank Roads in the United States and Canada, by VV. Kingsford," and recently published in Philadelphia, by Mr. A. Hart. Our large farmers would do well to send for the work, which costs only fiAy ^ents, and which would prove of signal benefit to those interested in having a good and cheap road to market. This is emphatically the ago of improvement, and our good citizens should take especial care that they do not fall behind In the march of progress. It has been well said that the greatest of all civilizcrs is a good road. No man, at anv rate, can question the influence of good roads in enhancing the value of farms. The better the road the nearer the market. A farm, within fifty miles of a great town, with a good road, is nearer a market than a farm, but twenty m...

Election Officers. The glaring frauds proved to have been committed at the last general election, and by the sworn officers of the election, have excited everywhere a feeling of indignation ; and the inquiry naturally arises, how is a repetition of these frauds to be guarded against ! iSome propose as a remedy, the abolition of the pay ^of election officers. The judges and inspectors of elections now receive about 815 or $20, which sum, small as it is, is sufficient to induce very many, by no means qualified for such posts, to offer themselves as candidates, and to put forth every effort to "succeed. In such a contest, every one knows it is not the most deserving, or the man of the highest character, that succeeds. Such men will ikji stoop tu tlio-incaira irljtatl mese Bmptoj to gain their ends, and the consequence is, lhat those who disregard all entreaty, and support men whom they deem competent, and whose characters are a guarantee of correct conduct, find themselves in t...
