Prepare for a Rererse. A man knows not how^soon he ' may be reversed. In its unceasng revolutions, the wheels of Providence maj' one day place hitn among the poor. How many al this moment, are languishing in all the horrors of the most abject destitution, who were once rich in this world's goods, and in whose lips dwelt in perpetual sweetness the self-deluding promise—"To-morrovV shall be as tins day, und much more abundant ? Remember the poor! In yonder gloomy prison lies one who made gold his idol. He forgot the needy in distress, and the appeals of the poor awoke no echo iu his brea&t. He was not his brothers' keeper,1 so he hoarded up his surplus lucre in his conVrsyand permitted the dying dtid the destitute to meet their doom; but as he had ineeted out to them, even so has i\ been ineeted unto him. Not u ray of atiiciiou, cheers now the g loom of his prison walls. Lell alone with the phantom of the post, how agonizing his remorse! Remember the poor, cloth the nake...

Read Work. ~ Head work is the hardest in the world.— The artisan feels this if, at any time he has to spend a whole day in calculation. All menot learning testify to the same truth, and their meagre frames and sallow complexions tell a plainer tale than their words.. Sir Edward Cocke, the great English lawyer, speaks thus concerning his great wotk:—i " While we were in hand with these four parts of the Institutes, we often, having occasion to go into the country, did in some sort envy the state of the honest ploughman and other mechanics. For one, when he was at work, would merrily sing, and the ploughman whistle some self-pleasing tone, and yet their work both proceeded and succeeded ; but be that takes upon himself to write, doth captivate all the faculties, and powers both of his mind and bod y, ahdinust be only attentive to that which he collects without any expression of joy or cheerfulness while he rs at his work." - \

The Governor's Message.." AN ABSTRACT. The message is voluminous, but not more so than the virgin messages of most newly elected Governors. It treats of almost every public question and is written in a plain, unostentatious and practical style. After the ordinary decerns prefix of thanksgiving, the Governor rejoices over the conclusion of the Mexican war. His remarks are pertinent and just, and he recommends lhat a monument be -raised to those Pennsylvanians who perished in the struggle. He announces the death of Gov. Shunk, and his own accession to Ihe chief magistracy. The eulogium of Governor Johnston upon his predecessor is earnest and magnanimous. We feel proud of American parlies when we see them, after years of hostility, manifesting thus the largest and most liberal fraternal feelings. The Governor recommends some action by the legislature expressive of respect for the dead and sympathy for the living: ' The Governor pives a full account of the difficulties arisingf' r...

Tax on Bachelors. W ¦ - . Among projects, Aiilered by the heat of the revolution, writ* have arisen in the French Assembly, one\s ' a tax upon celibacy. It is said that this measure originated with the women of Paris, who allege that celibacy is a luxury, and therefore should be taxed. .It appeared to be a serious proposition, if anything or any body can be serious in France. We find the provisionslhusdescribed: It is proposed that bachelors shall be taxed upon arriving at the age of twenty-five years, and lhat the tax shall be equal in amount to all the other taxes paid by the impracticable repudiator of matrimony on account of -real or personal estate, or for license , or for anything else. At the age of thirty-five there h>again an augmentation of the tax, which goes on augmenting periodically, until the eeftbitqire arrives at fifty; then, if he is a bachelor still; it remains stationary to the end of his/days.— But there is no remission or reduction, should he live ...

The LaTxr-rifthe Road. Kvery one who travels the road should make it his business loundfirstand the law of the road. The law of good breeding and good nature, which rarely fails to dictate the " giving place" to the passer, is a pretty good law, bui evert lhat has failed in some cases, where the disposition to put it in practice has been confined to but one side. Infirm humanity, therefore, requiring a fixed rule in this respect, as in almost every other—it becomes important to understand what that rule is., In a recent case tried in Essex county, N. J., between J. M. Meeker of New-ark, and P. F. Frazee of Railway, for damages in breaking the carriage of the former, by coming in contact on the highway. Chief Justice Greene, in his charge to the Jury, said: " It appeared Irom the evidence, lhat the plaintiff was on the right side of the road, where he had aright lo be, and kept steadily on, without deviating. He said our statute simply directs lhat all carriages shall keep to t...

The Southern Movement. It seems lo be the belter opinion;—says the Daily News—so far as wo can gather if from many intelligenrand trust-worthy sources, that the members of Congress from the South begin to realize the madnessof the policy which they have so rashly adopted. They were sent to Washington to legislate for the Union, not to conspire against it. They have given their oaths to support the constitution, not lo tear ii intofragments and trample it underfoot. Time, too, has been allowed for consultation with their constituents; and they discover that the Union iB as dear to the gallant people of the South—we speak of ihe masj, not of the professional politicians—as to those of the North. The result has been that ihecommittee refuse lo second Mr. Calhoun in his second edition of Nullification ; and the present prospect is that ail which they will have to ask is that their folly may be forgotten. We admit that there isfolly also at the North. How could it be otherwise ? ...
