Tite Other Side.—The Rev. Dr. Anderson, of Cliillicothe, Ohio, in the cour.se of a Thanksgiving Sermon in the First Presbyterian Church, recently delivered in that place, remarked that the- Nebraska Bill had "thrown n substantial impediment in the way of the cnward march of Slavery." This is no doubt true ; and, as political preaching seeius to be the order of the day, we arc glad to see that some of the clergy, at least, have got hold of good, sound, Democratic doctrine, with which to edify their hearers, and build them up in the right faith. If me must have politics from the Pulpit, let us have6«/A ttidtt. —Wash. £z.

Egg Tiiadb in Cauvoknia.—An important egg trade is carried on in the markets of San Francisco. The Farallones de los Fraylop, a group of rocky islets. lying u little more than twenty miles werft of the entrance to the bny of San Francisco, are the resort of innumerable sea fowl,known by the fishermen as "murrcs." These islands are almost inaccessible, and with a single exception, arc uninhabited. They, therefore, very naturally afford a resort For great multitudes of birds. Some time since, a company was organized in San Fran¬ cisco,, for the purpose of bringing the eggs of murrcs to market. An imperfect idea ot the numbers of tbese buds may lie forntedFTrouj the fact that this company sold in that city, the last season, (a period of less than two months, July and parts . of June and August) more than five hundred thousnnd eggs .' —All these were gathered on a single one of these Islands, and in the opinion of tlie eggers, not one egg in six of those deposited on that island was...

Too Good to bb Lost.—At a recent election in this State, a. lad presented himself at the polls tO'daim the benefit of the elective franchise.—Feeling a deep interest in a favorite candidate, the father, who was evidently opposed to the boy's preference, stood at the ballot-box, and challenged his right to vote, on the ground of his not being of age. The young man declared that he was 21 years old ; that he knew it, and that he insisted upon his right. The father becoming indignant, and wishing, as the saying is,^> "bluff him olF," before tbe judges, said: "Now, Bob, will you stand up there and contradict me ? Don't I know how old you are? —Wasn't I there ?" Bob looked his contempt for the old man as he replied—"Tuunderation! s'pose you was, wasn't I there too?" This settled the sire, and in went the scion's vote. "

Gknteel Laziness.—It is a painful spectacle in families where the mother is the drudge to see tbe daughters elegantly dressed, reclining at their ease, with their music, their fancy work, and thcirreading,—beguiling themselves to the lapse of hours, days and weeks, and never.dreaming of their responsibilities: but, as a necessary consequence of neglected duty, growing weary of their useless lives, laying hold of every invented stimulant.to ronsu their drooping energies, and blaming their fate when they dare not blame their God for having placed them where tbey ' aro. ' These indi-yidu* als will often tell you, with an air of affected compnssion thatk " poor mamma is working herself to death:" yet no sooner do you propose that they should assist her, than they declare she is quite in her element,—in short, that she would never be happy if she had only half as much to do. *

Newspapers.—A man eats up a pound of sugar, and the pleasure he enjoyed i.s ended ; but the information he gets from a newspaper is treasured up in the mind to be used whenever occasion or inclination culls for it. A newspaper is not the wisdom of one man or two men ; it is the wisdom of the age, of past ages, too. A family without a newspaper is half an age behind the times in general ir formation: besides they never think much or find much to think about. And there are the little ones, growing up in~ignorance without a tasto for reading. Besides all these evils there's the wife, who, when her work is done, has to sit down with her hands in her lap. and nothing to amnse her mind from the toils and caTes of her domestic-circle. Who, then, would be without a newspaper ?—Benjamin Franklin.

The Present Fasiiion of Bonnets^—the Normnl School Celebration at Salem j on Thursday, Prof. Feltor made a pleasant speech on the subject of "Female Emancipation," in which the Salem Gazette says he was "pleasantly conservative"—and conservatively * pleasant of course—but strongly reformatory in urging an emancipation from the tyranny of Fashion. He mentioned a fact of great importance, on the evidence of a medical gentleman, viz: that in his practice, the number of cases of opthalinia. bad increased five fold since the introduction of the present fashion of bonnets, which afford no shade to the eyes. At thispoint of the remarks, almost every lady present was observed to give her bonnet a sharp knock or jerk as if to carry it further upon her head, in the hope of saving her eyes in season.

Shavina the Pace. t>r. E. Snnborn, of Andover, writes to the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal quite an interesting tetter in favor of wearing the beard. He takes the ground that the custom of shaving the beard among nations of men is always attended or followed by a marked deterioration in the physical organization, not only of the existing race-of people. But of the race to come, and quotes examples from history to support his conclusions. He says that the aboriginal inhabitants of our soil and climate were once brave, powerful and numerous; but they waged war against nature by uprooting the beard from their facer; and consequently grew more and more effeminate with ...

On this issue, although the message does not go out of the way to rehearse the current arguments of the day, it assumes a position alike unequivocal and impregnable.

"A, Miserable Sham." A correspondent of the New York Tribune, writing " froiiiVVashington last week, declares it as his firm conviction that "Nisow-Notliingism at the South is a miserable sham." Right, as far as it "goes ; but is'nt it a "miserable sham" at the North, too ? Is'nt it a '-miserable sham" every where ? Is'nt its principles "a miserable sh^m'^? Is'nt its objects "a miserable sham"—its leaders a "miserable sham"—their claims to honesty of purpose a "miserable sham;" and worse than all. its "fears for the supremacy of Protestantism, a '•miserable sham." If it is not, in all these particulars, a "miserable sham," then there never was a "sham." Said a disgusted Know Nothing to us the other day, "my experience in the Order, is, that every third man at least is an ofiice-seeker. And as to the honesty ol this new party, it is all pretence.

When those who have been misled into opposition to such men as these fully recover from their delusions, they will start with amazement at their own work. They will find that in losing their old and well-tried servants, they have gained a host of reckless demagogues— the mere traders of politics, the mere charlatans of fanaticism. It is right that all men should aspire to a station in a tree country ; but the day that sees this great nation permanently transferred-to-the-hands of menrwhohave no claim upon the people but that of being able to Hatter a popular prejudice—that' day will be a dark day in out history, for ...
