There is scarcely a person in the whole World but what has neglected some op portunity of doing good. IIow often we bear people swear and speak profane language, yet we have not the moral courage to reprove them; or, we let slip the opportunity, and when the opportu nity is past, then we begin to reflect and call to mind that we have had an oppor tunity of doing good, and taken no ad vantage of it.

. LITTLE GEORGE'S STORY. MY Aunt Xibby patted roe &lt;5n the bead the other day, and said, "George, my boy, this is the happiest part of your life." I guess my Aunt Libby don't know much. I guess she never worked a week to make a kite, and the first time she went to fly it got the tail hitched in a tall tree, whose owner wouldn't let her climb up to disentangle it. I guess she never broke one of the runners of her sled some Saturday after noon, when it was "prime" coasting.

I had heard how much good he had done, and to-day I went down to the Five Points to see for myself. ? Oh, I couldn't tell' you half the misery that stared me in the face, as I passed through those streets. Slatternly women, huddled round cellar doors; dirty children, half naked, playing in the muddy gutters, and hearing words that may never, never be wri...

Don't hurt the Birds. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Band of Hope Review, and Children's Friend — 15 March 1856
Dont hurt the Birds. SPEAKING ot birds, X hope you will not consider them as enemies, nor let your children think them so. Truo, they are sometimes very annoying in a gar den, bu^ they generally prefer anibal food td vegetable, and devout many more insects than seed«. A few inge nious contrivances will soon prevent them doiug serious mischief, and if they do get a small share of ripe fruit, it is only what a kind Providence in tended them to have. They ave a beau tiful part of tho creation, and on the whole, much more beneficial than inju rious to a garden. Teach your children to look upon thom as friends, to study their habits, and observe their peculiari ties. This will improve their minds, and soften their tempers, and make them more inclined to love one another. A bird-nesting, bird-tormenting boy sel dom grows into a humane or, good man.
