POPULAR SELECTIONS. A SCENE IN PRAIRIE LAND. Mas. Farnham, in her charming book, entitled " Life in Prairie I,und," linn given some thrilling aketehe. of seenFo upon the Western l'rniries. One of these describes the fortunes of it settler, who wilh bis family from the eastward, encamped upon tho northern side of one of iho lllioois prairies, eighteen miles in extent, long before the lands hud been vacated by the Indians.— lie built his solitary log-hut, and for many months they subsisted on wild game and fruits, while the mother wrought patiently for those she loved. On the approach of winter, the father and his eldest son started in tbeir emigrant wagon for the nearest settlement, to procure winter goods and grain, and were sbsent many days, leaving the rest of the family to the protection of tho faithful dog. We here quote from the narrative : The mother nnd children often looked anxiously out upon the great prnirie, now embrowned by the frosts of autumn, and wondered when they wo...

NEVER RAIL AT THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 25 February 1847

NEVER RAIL AT THE WORLD. BY CHARLES SWAIN. Never rail at the world—it is just as we make it, We sec not the Ihiwer if we see not die sec.l; And as for ill luck, why it's just as we lake it, The heart ihal's in earnest no liars can impede. You question ihe justice which g.ivenis man's lirrast. And say that Ihe search fur true friendship is vain; But reineinlicr, this world, though il lie 1...1 llic liesl, Is next to the best we shall ever attain. Never rail at the warlil, nor attempt to exalt That feeling which questions society's claim; For often pisir friendship is less in the fault. Less chargeahle oft, than the selfish who hlame; Then ne'er hy the changes of fale lie depress'd, Nor wear like a fetter Time's sorrowful chain; Bui believe tliat this workl, though it lie not the hest, Is next to Ihe best we shall ever attain.

Perhaps it would be proper to state, thut within two weeks this paper has passed into new bonds. It has been purchased by some gentlemen of Cambridge, and placed on a permanent fooling. The opinion appears to be general thnt a paper can, and ought to be well sustained, in ibis city. Wo do not expect, however, that it will succeed unless il has merit, and is worthy of the support of intelligent citizens. To make it such a paper will be the object iiftlin puhlishor, who does not feel disposed to make large promises for Ihe future, hul is rather desirous that "his asM As should praise him." Do NOT FORUKT TO VOTE ON MONDAY next for City Officers !

Relies for Ireland.—The good work of raising money nnd provisions for the relief of the starving and destitute in Ireland and Scotland, is rapidly progressing. Almost every city and town in our own Commonwealth is doing something; nnd throughout the whole country efforts ore being ! mude which will, we doubt not, result in the collection ofa generous sum for n most noble object.

She had nlso a large amount of freight, including $2,54)0,000 in specie. She left £4700 ut Halifax. Tho political news is not important. Tho aspect of affairs throughout Europe is somewhat gloomy, and the prospects of the future not promising. The principal evils are the results of a bid* harvest, throughout the north western parts of Europe, nnd ihe reaction of too great prosperity in former years. These evils uremost grievously felt in Ireland, and in all parts of the United kingdom—France and Belgium. They are apparently exaggerated, in regard to their extent, in all these countries, though there is no doubt that the sufferings of the poor ...

[For the Cambridge Chronicle.] The Defunct Massachusetts Guards. What woiild tho City of Cambridge do, in case of v riot, or oilier insubordinate action, that may, perchance, occur ut any moment, and on the most frivolous pretext, by any evil-minded class of persons, without a military company regularly organized and fully equipped, on whom reliance could be placed for the immediato suppression of such a revolt ? Would it not he for the interests of the city to foster, und keep in active preparation, a corps of infantry, ready, at any rnomeut, to quell even tho most incipient signs of insurrection or mob ? Experience, surely, hns sufficiently tested the absolute necessity of military organization, even for purely cii-t7 security. Evil spirits still exist in the world, nnd the strong arm of the taw, backed by military aid, is sometimes necessary lo put io uwe the rebellious. A LINK OF POINTED BAYONETS.
