Colonizing in Honduras. The Government of Honduras has given a religious Society in New-York, the right to establish a colony within that State; it has given them a liberal grant of land, and affords them every facility and encouragement/ they require.

The dying man answered, "My little boy wili'see hiss father suffer great pain for the want of that medicine." The child went out of the room alone and wept bitterly. Soon after , he was called back to take a fond farewell of _his;bes...

f ; Tne Fmc Art ; of Patching. To .patch—how v_^gar is the term ! yet it is an ?operation requiring far more skill than does the making of a new garment, andVhen|well executed , may save the purchase of many a costly one; the most expensive robe may, by accident, be torn or spotted the first day of its wear; the piece inserted in lieu of the damaged one is a patch. If a figured material, the pattern must be exactly matched ; in all cases the insertion must be made without pucker, and the'kind of seam must be such as , though strong, will be least apparent; and the corners must be turned with neatness. Is not this art an that requires teaching ? So of darning, much instruction is necessary as to the number of threads to be left by the needle , according to the kind of fabrics; then there is the kind of thread or yarn most suitable to be determined. Where the article is coarse, the chief attention is directed to expedition; but a costl y article of embroidery on muslin, can only b...

. . The Origin of Whittling. _. Probably few persons are aware th&t this democratic, down-east recreation is of king-, ly origin. If JElian,, the Latin historian .and. biographer, is to be believed, whittling was. a:royal.prerogative in Persiatnore-than fifteen hundred years ago.- A King' of Persia was a personage with a soul above books. He was a semi-divine creature, who was supposed to attain a-knowledge of everything proper to be known by monarchs by intuition, or revelation , or some other " royal road to learning." - To read , would have been to belittle his wisdom and compromise his dignity. So he whittled , like our own Orientals of Connecticut ati_' d Cape Code, and all along shore. Old iElian describes with much particularity the manner, in which he performed the fascinating operation, it dinered in no material point from the existing style in Yankeedom. " That he might agreeably while away his loisure hours," says iBlian, referring to one of the Persian Kings,...

Love Tour Enemies, The subject is important. An enemy is one that has in some way offended us, and toward whom we have feelings of displeasure. Have you an enemy? here, then, is advice what to do—love him., Our,nature moves us to the opposite of this. ' Still we are to love him._» Jesus bids you to do this. . Jesus not only bids us to love our enemies' , but he had set us the example by asking lor the forgiveness of his enemies, Luke xxiii: 34. The disciples must endeavor to put into practice what he has taught. Example of one, Stephen, Acts vii: 60. Paul exhorts us to do the same, Horn_, xii: 14, 20,21 5 1. Cor. iv: 12. Also, Peter, 1. Peter ii: 19, 23j Hi r 9. We have an enemy we are not to love-Satan. Let us learn of Jesus to love our enemies, then will this great enemy be hated by us. Jesus Christ will finall y destroy this enemy. Take these words individually—Love your enemies. Do you ? If God had not loved us when rebels, we should have been lost forever. Think also of his...

A Sciajj of History. It may not be uninteresting to read-the following extracts, from Irving's Life of Washington, concerning the armies of the Eevolution at ihe beginning of ;the war: " Washington reconnoitered_'the British posts from various points of view. Everything about them was in admirable order. The works appeared to be constructed with military science, the troops to be in a high - state of discipline. The American camp, on the contrary, disappointed him. He had expected to find eighteen or twenty thousand men under arms ; there were not much more than fourteen thonsand. He had,expected to find some degree of system and discipline ' „ whereas all were raw militia. * * * ' In riding throughout the camp, Washington observed that nine thousand of the troops belonged to Massachusetts ; the rest were from other provinces. Many were sadly in want of clothing, and all, said Washington, were strongly imbued with the spirit of insubordination, which they mistook for independenc...

The Iron Dnke and the Gonnanght Boys. During the Peninsular war an Irish reg iment from Connaught became notorious for the unscrupulous manner in which they plundered the inhabitants of Portugal and Spain wherever the Britisn army marched or encamped, but were also distinguished for their pluck. Wellington at last became so exasperated by their lawless conduct that he'had .the regiment paraded for the purpose of striking them with terror by having ev,ery tenth man shot. Before giv ing such a bloody order, however, he wished to state his reasons for it, and .began to address the regiment thus: " You are thieves, robbers, cut-throats, vagabonds—everything but- cowards." This .compliment to their courage, although at the expense of every other virtue, so pleased the regiment that" they at once gave three cheers with such a _burgt of enthusiasm as quite overwhelmed the Iron Duke, and looking at them a moment in silence he turned his _hdrse and rode away wi hout saving another word. ...
