MISCELLANEOUS. A MEED OF JUST PRAISE. rpilE INGRATITUDE OK MAN TO HIS FELLOW MAN JL is so often met with in life that testimonials, prompted by the finer feelings of the heart, are oases in the lile of those who sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the alleristion of the ills of frail mortality. Empiricism floods the columns of our press with fraudulent and fictitious letters, singing pa-ana to the worth of their own egotistical charlatanism. Below we append a letter from a worthy man, who, a brief period since, seemed destined to " shuffle off this mortal coilwho looked forward to his dissolution with that pleasure which only those weighed down by the heavy hand of disease can. Contrary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician has restorej him to his former health. Relieved from his terrible situation, and impelled by gratitude, he makes known his case and remedial agent, and his statement is authenticated by a Notary Public.

Far from those I hold most dear, Weave for thee this idle ditty To he read some future year.

Never false love, false and chilly, Dearest ! hast thou known as yet, But ere long thy blue eyes, I.ili, May with secret tears be wet. Should a drear and cold December Blast the sweet flowers of thy youth, 'Twill be something to rememiter That thou hast been loved in truth. Loved, at least by one, sincerely.

LET US HELP ONE ANOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

LET US HELP ONE ANOTHER. [The following quaint lines convey a beautiful moral, teaching us that there is no sphere or rircumstance in life In which we cannot render each other mutual assistance.] A man very lame, was a little to blame To stray far away from his humble arwnle; Hot, thirsty, beuiired, ami heartily tired, He laid himself down in the road. While thus he reclined, a man that was blind Came hy, and entreated his aid ; Deprived of my sight, unassisted to-night, I shall nol reach my home, I'm afraid. Intelligence give, of the place where you live— Said the cripple—perhaps I may know it: In my road it may Ik?, and if yxu'l! Garry mr. It will give me much |deasure to show iL Great strength you've got, which, alas I I have nol In my legs, so fatigued every nerve Is ; For the use of your back, for the eyes that you lack My pair shall be much at your service.

About Babies. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

About Babies. To describe the goings on of the two young ladies with that baby is wholly out of the question. They quarreled for it. chucked it in their amis, examined its toes with critical attention. and conversed with it in barbarous baby language, *IMeh was enough, Ralph said, to drive a man distract,,) They asked it various questions—were delighted with its replies—called its attention to the chickens—and evidently labored under the impression thut it understood. They addn esod thi' baby uniformly in the neuter gemier, and requested to'know whether it was not their darling. To all which the baby replied with thoughtful stares, only occasionally condescending to laugh. The feet having been examined again—there is much iv babies' feet—the party smiled and went away, calling after baby to the last. " Now, that's all affectation," said Ralph ; " you young ladies " " You're a barbarian, sir !" replied Fanny, with great candor. " I know I am." '• I'm glad you do." " Rut," continued R...

A Yankee After A Squaw. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

A Yankee After A Squaw. A letter from Wahington in the Phiadelphia Inquirer has the following :— Considerable amusement has been afforded some of our officials, for the last few days, by the presence of a genuine, genteel Yankee, who came here for the purpose of negotiating a treaty of marriage with the daughter of a certain Shawnese chief, who, you will recollect, some time ago offered a large premium to any suitable man, who would take her and settle down in his country to teach his people civilized manners and customs. He hails from Boston, is well-dressed, intelligent, and evidently in earnest. He has had interviews with the Commissioners of Indian Affairs and other Heads of Departments, and also with the President, and has forearmed himself with sundry letters of recommendation, testimonials as to character, Ac. The Yankee " sticks out" in all his movements. He is willing to take tho young squaw, but he wants to be sure that he will receive all the douceurs named in the old chi...

A Prose-Poem. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

A Prose-Poem. I<onf* ago -a long, long time ago—in fact, when he was a boy. and loved dearly a child like himself, a child who is now a lair and beautiful-browed woman, and who smiles with v dreamy, thoughtful expression w hen his lace comes to her—long ago, flowers were very bright, iv the bright May day, by a country brookside. The buttercups were over all the hills, for children to put under their chins, and pea hloßMßts, very much like lady-*li]>-peri, swayed prettily in the wind. Beneath the feel of the boy and girl -she was a merry, bright-eyed child I how I love her still!—broke eraenaa i and violets, and a t hnu -ami wild flowers, fresh und full ol fairy beauty. The grass was green and soil, and the birds rose through the air on fluttering wings, singing and rejoicing, aud the clouds Boated over them a- only clouds in May can float, quickly, hopefully, with" adash of changeful April in them Dot like those of August; for the May cloud is a maiden, a chil...

Good Words. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

Good Words. A lady writes : " Nobody knows what is slumbering among the ]tcople, what political wisdom, until it is called forth. The very jiersous who say the best aud noblest things do not come forth without they are cailed forth, because these great and noble things are their iumost feeling and seem to themselves too simple and what everybody must think. Sjieak it out. good friends, everywhere, thosesimple things, lived truths. Freedom feeds on the universal heart and mind, aud nol on the genius of here aud there one remi rkable persou or great scholar. The American statesman is the good, honest citizen, who does his daily work, and loves his wife and children, and knows that every other man has the same duties and rights as himself.''

The Calilope. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

The Calilope. "We arc informed by tho Timet that, a few years ■go, Be*. Mr. Dewey suggested the idea of OOBverting the execrable noise occasioned by blowing oil steam into soothing music, so that instead ol setting the teeth on edge, and splitting the ears of everybody within a mile, it should have just the opposite effect of producing a state of quel repose nnd harmonizing influence. The idea seemed fantastical enough, and yet we have lived to sec it roaliml. An ingenious Yankee has invented an instrument which can lie applied to any ordinary steam engine, by which the escaping steam may be made to play a variety of lively or saddening tunes. The instrument is called the Calilope and we yesterday heard it on the Kast Hivcr, giving out' its wild and wizard music on board the steamer I'nion. The tones of the t'ali!u|H' are rather screechy, it must lie cnnfos.s.'d. but ihey an- as sweet as Apollo's lute compurcd with the steam-whistle. Heard from a distance, the strains come over the ...

A Suggestion for Parents. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 5 October 1856

A Suggestion for Parents. A correspondent desires to caution parents against discouraging children who manifest a tact for invention, from its employment and improvement. Even the making of a water-forge, or any trifling toy of childhood, he says, may tend to develop a genius, to take its place in maturity, with those of Franklin, Whitney, or Fulton. Very true; but what is a much more probable result, time spent in the practical study of mechanics, whether for mere purpose ol pleasure or for those of actual use, w ill hail to habits of thought and accuracy of work, when properly conducted— which can but be of eminent service, in any pursuit of life. The child, time, alter he is old enough to think ami while he is yet too young to attend school at a distance from home or to be of much assistance there, often passes most tediously. »'. c., ■niesS the proverbial employer of" idle hands" sets his or hers at work,—for mere want of tometkmg fo tin ; and it is by no means an easy task in a...

Jet Ornaments. There are not many branches of art manufacture says the Art /onreef, which are of more interest than the working of jet. The material itself— which is a comparatively rare production, lieing confined in this country to the neighborhood of Whitby—is Cnrione in its general character, and peculiarly interesting in its mode of occurrence, •let was certainly known to the Romans, and used by them for ornamental purposes. A few fragments of jet ornaments, which have from time to time Iteva discovered in this country, prove that, it was workiil at an early period iv these Islands. The jet of our coust was known to the ancients by the name ol gui/o/rs. In the history of Whitby, by Lionel ('harlton. we find this passage : " I myself lnm lately \ laired the ear-ring of a lady whowas buried in one af the Bam (tumuli or barrows) long before the time of the Panes in Kngland.

There were on the deck, beside myself and two friends, about bair-a dozen Irishmen slightly elevated, nearly the same numlar of Dutchmen somewhat " obfuscated" with lager, and ■several boat hands.

Seeing the Elephant The first distinguished Komaii who ■ saw the elephant" was Fabius. Pyrrhus. in invading Italy, carried a large Dumber with him, to carry destruction and terror into the Roman ranks". While Fubius, who was on a diplomatic mission to the invader, and who had the day previous refused a heavy brilie to turn traitor to his country, was suddenly, by the raising of a curtain, treated to a sight of one of the largest of the Asiatic monsters. He took it very coolly, however, "The sight of your elephant to-day terrifies me no more than did that of your gold to seduce me yesterday." Rut it was really a trial ; for when A lexander the great tirst saw a line ol elephants drawn up m front of Porus's army, stretching forth their snakelike trunks, and uttering their wild, trumpet-notes of defiance, he declared that he had never before encountered an enemy so worthy ofj_iK rHurage.

Antidote tor Strychnine. l-he cdi ors of the Scientific American have received a letter from Mr. Leavitt, of Roekville, Conn., m relation to the useof coffee in neutralizing the deadly effects of strychnine. A friend ol his hail a valuable dog, which was poisoned with Strychnine, and was fast sinking under its influencebeing unable to stand—when Mr. L saw him, and being informed of the cause, suggested that a strong decoction of coffee be given to the animal. About hall a pint was administered, aud it soon began to get better, and ultimately recovered entirely. We recommend this to the attention of physiologists, who may experiment with strychnine upon animals, for the purpose of discovering an antidote. Let some experiments be made with coffee. It has been said that lard is an antidote lor strychniue, but this has lieen denied by persons who have tried it. Strychnine is sometimes made into pills with lard, fur poisouiug foxes aud wolves.
