- ¦ - ¦*¦ "- —¦— ¦¦ ¦¦ Our Streets. We are continually in pursuit of objects, which we flatter ourselves, possess the talismanic qualities of yielding ease, comfort and health. But our pursuit often is after phantoms, whose novel and capricious appearance elude ns from a proper course into a maze of perplexities, caused by a too prevelenl notion of mankind, that ease and comfort can be gained at one grasp. This, however, in not the case, they are composed like physical objects within, our view, of minute particles, which adhering together by mutual sympathy make up one common mass. To enjoy comfort and health, our attention must be directed to such causes, as have a tendency to destroy the equilibrium of the mind on those that effect the natural and healthy oppeiation of the body, and means emp loyed to remove them. The mind and body is so intimately, sympatheticaly and mysteriously connected, that the one cannot sufler without affecting Ihe other. The mind should never be s...

Mr. and Mrs. Apple have been living together as husband and wife for rnme twenty years, and have raised a large family of children ! Their re-marriage was made necessary by the following mysterious train of circumstances, as we learn by a friend who was present at Ihe examination of the case in the circuit court now in sesMou in this eily.

Cotton Factories. The people of Lancaster, (Penn.) have built two large Steam Cotton Factories, within tho last two or three years, and have raised within a few days past overS150 , 000 towards the capital of another. The capital of this third Company is to be 5200,000, about the same amount as that of ench of the two previous Companies. Since this manufacturing enterprise sprang up in 183G, the population of that city has increased from 8,000 to 13,000, and we do not doubt that in three years more it will reach 20,000. All kinds or business have increased in proportion, and Lancaster bids fair to be Ihe second city in ihe state in a few years. The Press ol .thaLcity^^whojet.tliCLhall-in.motion—aLc-jLery justly elated at the flattering prospect before them.

President Taylor- | The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot gives the following description of Gen. Taylor's appearance in public : The day being fine, the number of persons was very large, and the display of beauty and fashion unusual even on such an occasion. Alan early hour the President made his appearance in the portico of Ihe While House,and soon afterwards ; descended to the garden, and mixed wilh Ihe \ company. He passed round and exchanged sa- I lutations with all who approached him, and { seemed to enter into the spirit of the occasion ' with ns much zest as any one present. \ It was truly a gratifying sight to sec the most ! exalted officer iu the government, one towards ; uwhom-wcare-accustomedjo look with a feeling ' somewhat akin to awe,descending from his high position, and taking his place among the most humble in the community. .How beautifully such an incident illustrates the genius and peculiar character of our institutions.

Another Homcepathic practioner reports for the last two weeks eighty-eight cases of cholera in his prac-. lice arid no death.

Wreck of the Empire. mci\cw \orlc J .riDune gives the following atfccling incident of the wreck of Ihe ill-fated steamer Empire. It is affirmed to be strictly correct :— After the Empire was struck, andjvliile sinking, two mothers snatched what, they supposed lo be their own infants, and rushed upon deck, and in Iheir own fright, threw themselves inlo -thc-water. .One of the devoted parents held.the child to her bosom, and both were saved; while the other sustained hers till it breathed ils las) , yet still holding on to the body until she was rescued.. The surprise of the mothers may be imagined, when they discovered that in the confusion attending their escape, they had each taken the other's child. And while ihe poor woman who had supposed that her little one was lost, pressed lo her bosom her own babe, the other was frantic with grief to find too late that she had preserved another's child and lost her own.

Respect for Parents. If children could realize but a small portion of the anxiety their parents feel on their account , they would pay far greater respect to the parental wishes. A good child, and one in whom confidence can be placed, is the one who does not allow himself to disobey his parents, nor lo do anything when his parents are absent , that ho has reason lo bolieve they would disapprove were they present. The good advice of parents.is often engraven on the heart of tho child, that after years of care and toil do not eflacc il; and in the hour of temptation the thought of a parent has been tho salvation of the child, though the parent may be sleeping in the grave, and the ocean may roll between that sacred spot and the tempted child. A small token of parental affection, borne about the person, especially a parent's likeness would frequently prove a talisman for good. A Polish prince was accustomed to carry the picture of his father always in his bosom: and on any partic...

netween i Dreadful Fire. On Thursday night, me 1:4111 insr., s and t o'clock, the dwelling house of Mr. William Lash, in Cumru township, Berks county, a twostory stone building, situated on the Harrisburg turnpike, about two miles from ihis city, and known as Good's old tavern-siand, was entirely destroyed by fire, logclhcr wilh all its furniture and contents. When the family were aroused from sleep, the house was already enveloped in llames, and they had barely lime to escape, wilh a few articles of clothing that were near al hand, before everything was consumed but the blackened walls of the building. It is nol known how the fire originated, but from .the fact that an attempt was made the night previous, lo break into the house, il is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. The family took tea early in the evening, and when retiring to bed, there was not fire enough anywhere in the house, to kindle a blaze sufficient to light a candle, without some exertion. Mr. Las...

The Country. Nature never showeth her handiwork to better advantage than at the present period. The eye is charmed wilh the rich mantle of living green that decks the landscape, the sylvan groves ahd "grand old Woods." Those confined by their occupation to some confined apartment, cannot ride forth and view the beautiful aspect of tho country, withouj expressing delight and admiration. The vision cannot stretch forth over the broad farms of well tilled acres, contemplate tho quiet which reigns around the neat farm house, surrounded with fair shrubbery and fruitful trees, without wishing lo share its pleasing retirement. The industrious-farmer must earn-bis bread by ihe sweat of his brow, but his is die life, and his the home "for 'a that."

The Gold Dollar. Several thousands of Ihe diminutive specimen of the good and "lawful currency of the United Stales'' are in circulation and, having found their way into the interior, have met wilh every kind of reception. Some think them entirely too small, and liable to be lost—others, that they are sweet little things, very handsome and very convenient. Ify one portion of the community, however, they are held in perfect abhorrance — we mean the bankers and brokers. In their opinion , the gold dollar is a contemptible, sneaking, insignificant, dirty affair. Reason—they interfere with the one dollar bills of their own manufactories. We have a small lot of the little deeds on hand, and will exchange them to our friends, who wish lo use them as pocket pieces.
