Gay Hearts. From the bollur Newspaper* Chide not the heart that's light, Chide not ;th<- heart that's gay, For the spring of life so, bright, Too soon will pass away. Chide not the spirits bounding j p'er this lair ssiiilir.g earth, Chide no, laugh resounding—No! echo, back its mirth! Hearts that are light to-day, To-morrow may be sad; Then never chide the gay, But bid them to be glad, For soon, may sorrows come, And on that smiling face, Ndw so fair and gladsome, * Deep care its lines may trace! Then let the joyous heart Be happy, while it may, No sad'nins tone impart,-!To cloud its sunny way; Bill as you pass them by, i Breathe to Heaven a prayer, that spirits now so high, May never bow with care! v. p.d.

A. String uf Pearls.. What is jo??—The honey of exste~nce: really beneficial and agreeable when partaken of in moderation, but highly injurious when used to excess. What is contentment?—The philosophy ottlife, and the principal ingredient in the cup of happiness—a commodity that is undervalued in consequence of the very low price it <an be obtained at. : What is happiness ?—A butterfly lhaf roves from flower to flower, in the vast garden of existence, and which is eagerly pursued by the multitude, in the vain hope of obtaining the prize; yet it constanlly elutlea their grasp. What is tame"?—A fierce and uncon querable steed, that bears its rider onward in the high: road to preferment: but often throws him with such a fall that he rarely ever recovers. What is crime?—A wretched vagabond, traveling trim place to place in the fruitless endeavor to escape justice, who is constantly engaged in hot pursuit. A foe to virtue and happiness, though at times the companion of poo...

Anecdotes of Bishop Bascom. A.iwriter in the "Columbian" is furnishing interesting anecdotes of the late distinguished Methodist Bishop, the Rev. H. B. Bascom. We copy two or three of them: His Escape from a Panther.—iFor several years Dr.' Bascom's labors were assigned to the wild and unsettled Irontiers ot Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio The hardships and privations to which he was subjected, on these circuits, would have crushed the spirits of an ordinary man. He had frequently to travel forty miles a day, through solitary forests, and after the fatigues of such a journey, deliver a sermon at night. The roadsj at that time were scarcely broken, and there were no bridges over the streams, which, in winter were often swollen beyond their banks. But this was but a slight obstacle to the noble pioneer ol the cross. He would force his horse daringly forward, across the foaming billows. To a soul like his, a wet suit and a lew hours of chillness were tiifles not to be avoided. On o...

Beaaiifiti Sentiment. John G. Whittier, the Quaker Poet, in writing about Irish Emigrants among us says r \ " For myself, I confess I feel sympathy for the Irishman. I see him as, the representative of a generous,"•warmhearted, and cruelly oppressed people. That he loves his native land—that his patriotism is divided—that he cannot forget the claims of his mother island, that his religion, with all its abuses, is dear to him, coes not decrease my estimation of him. A stranger in a strange land, he is to me an object ol interest. The poorest and the rudest has a romance in bis history. Amidst ail his apparent gaiety of heart and national drollery, and wit, the poor emigrant has sad thoughts of the " ould mother ol him" sitting lonely in her solitay tabin by the bog side—recollections of a father's blessing and a sister's farewell—that sister who loved him so devotedly—are haunting him; a grave-mound in the distant church-yard, far beyond the " wide waters," has an eternal green...

All About a Kiss. " The melting juncion of lour rosy lips." The Naturalist.—A kiss iss the bringing into juxtaposition two contrarily-charged poles by which it,, like an electric spark, is elicited. The Moralist.—A kiss is the token of the most intimate communion of love, and is therefore only to be permitted in the married. The Physician.—A kiss is the art of so moving the labial muscles that the lips are first brought suddenly together, and then explosively separated ; so that after all a kiss is only an artificial spasm. The Philoligist.—A kiss h fa onamehto-poetic word, in which the curtness of the thing is represented by the brief sound of the word. The Antiquarian.—Kisssing is a custom handed down to us from the Greeks and Romans, as to the true signification of which we are not perfectly clear. Probably it is a symbol of the sun's rays greeting fhe earth ; and if so, doubtless was received with all the other tare of sun-worship from the Orientals. / Theologians [a hos...

Hope. It is delightful passion, hope; it is the life of society and of the individual. F.very species of hope is useful, whether it be individual hope,or family hope,or national hope, or humanitarian hope. A man or, woman who is under the cheering influence of this passion is always raised a few.degress in the scale of being. The understanding is strengthened, the imagination is enlivened, the jpemory is rendered more impressive and tenacious, by hope; and what is of still more importance, the honorable feelings are cultivated. We, therefore, rejoice to see* the beaming eyes and elastic steps of the fairest, if not the most faithful of the three Graces; but we can never forget the pranks ol fhe maiden, the leer ol her eye, the deceitfulness of her sweet, persuasiveness of her tongue. She means well; but her wisdom is doubtful. She trains man to think; but in training him she often leads him astray, merely to teach him by errors and negatives, that it is necessary to be on one'...

The Tiger and Bog. w In Saigon, where dogs are dog cheap, we used to give the tigress one every day. They were thrown alive into her cage, when, after playing with her victim for a time, as a cat does with a mouse, her eyes would begin Jo glisten, and her tail to vibrate, which were the immediate precursors of death to the devoted little prisoner, which was immediately seized5 by the back of the neck, the incisors of the sanguinary beast perforating the jugular arteries, while she would traverse the cage, the bars of which she lashed with her tail, and suck the blood of her prey, which hung suspended from her mouth. One day, a puppy, not at all remarkable, or distinguished ip appeaiance from the common herd, was thrown in, who immediately, on perceiving his situation, set up a dismal yell, and attacked the digress with great fupy, snapping at her nose, from. which he drew some blood. The tigress appeared to be amused with the puny rage of the pupp?, and with as goodhumored a...

The Bridge. the building ol the bridge across the river at this place, was let by the Directors, on" Wednesday last to Daniel A. Bardwfrllof this place, and Col. Wrn. W. Jeffenes," of Philadelphia. The company have been fortunate insetting responsible, thorough going and efficient men as contractors. Cot. Jeffenes came we'l'recommended as an old experinced bridge builder. Having been engaged for a. number of years in the business, he necessarily brings with him improved skill and jnnch practical information. His partner, Mr. Bardwell, bears the name in this community of being a shrewd, active business man, and well acquainted with the rule of number one, and so far as our knowledge extends, we believe he has never been overestimated. With such men to do the work, we may expect that it will be done well and with great promptness. K=r The democracy of this county will soon be called' upon to select and place in nomination competent and worthy mentofill the various offices. The...

Wyoming Ahead on the T$rf. We-were shown a letter the other day by Col. Daniel A. Bardwell, giving an account of the black trotting horse sold by him a short time ago to Wm. S. Wells, of Wilkesbarre. Mr. Bardwell sold lor 930.0—Wells sold him in a short time for 5500 or §300,since which, the letter states, he has been sold twice —in Newark and Baltinnre—at Newark fa; §3,000, and at Baltimore for §8,000. It also statesrthat he has made time at 2.26—the fastest trotting on the annals of the turf,. which places the fame of Wyoming far ahead of all competition for fast nags. Let the high mettled chivalry ofthe South boast ot their pure, blooded imported chargers; but, the fleet footed steeds raised upon Wyoming's classic hills are bound to wear the* laurels of victory. This is a great country.

f Correspondence erf the Democrat. 'ri Mr. Wii{chester|:—The last comwunication.ofi"Omicroh" (jn itieWhigjot more properly speaking, what he in fiis legal learning would term a'sur-rejoinder, hardly merits a reply from me.—¦ The matters at issue have been sufficiently'explained, and it' k toT'the public to judge who has the vantage ground : and it is not for me to claim in a boasting way what the people would not award. "i'Omicroii"-claims the victory ; but it is one thing..to claim, and another to merit. The thief in the crowd often cries "stop thief!" in order to divert attention. The matter 'is with the communitv, and with their decision I will be content. . The main point with friend "Omicron" appeals now to be whether I am a friend to temperance or not; and as to that I care not what he claims or what his assertions are—it will not change the matter either the one way or the other. You say " you begin to hope that the homoeopathic doses of gentle rebuke" which you " h...
