That the growing of sheep, and with them wool is a lucrative business, is a fact which no one who knows any thing about it will deny, and in consideration of this fact we are surprised that some at least of the most enterprising farmers of Centre county have not entered more largely into the business, and demonstrated clearly and beyoiid a doubt to their fellow farmers that wool growing is a means, whereby they particularly those, who have lands adapted to the growth of grass, can, surely and without failure bring in large returns for the money and labor invested. From our observation of the flocks of sheep in the county, we would not suppose that there is an average of more than eight sifsep. to every, three hundred acres of land. fWe may be iri eJrbr itj this estimate but not much.) Think of this farmers—consider it and acknowledge that, instead of eight you might, with very little more labor and e...

JEnjoying Our Work. The most of people who live in a Christian community believe that work is a divine institution; but there are few who ha^e more than a general idea of what is meant by work as a divine law. As for tracing the wisdom of God in it, they ^^vef think of such a'thing. Content to £now that somehow, it is connected with the system of Providence, and operates to the moral advantage of society, they take no pains to investigate its close relations to the .character and future welfare of man. Such persons can readily see how work provides dailj bread an 1 clothing—how it moves the whole machicery of businessf^how it creates a nation's wealth, and builds up the power of material cililizatibn.. Beyond this their thoughts never extend. Hence their opinions on this subject are defective; and they never realise half the good of work, because of their imperfect conceptions' of its true value. Work is not a mere provision for.animal wants. Without doubt it was designed to fco...

dom of Israe'i Wise men, would bAYe be(,Q puzzled to trace tbe relation that a boy'3 careless existence, lying on the hill-sides of Judea and watching the grazing fiocksj bore to a destiny of incomparable grandeur. What, occasion .was there here, for the exercise of thole virtues that Were, in .after years, to make David's reign a memorablo era in the career of Israel ? And yet wo know that this mode of life, its peculiar circumstances, its secluded thoughtfulnessj its silenttmeditativeness, its mute companionship with nature, all, went.far, under divine influence, to mould him for future 31si tinction. The encounter with "a linn and a bear" was more than a victory of physical force; for it was a moral lesson, never forgotten, of where his strength lay,, and! what unseen hands helped him. Then, too, how much he owed to his daily task—how his watchful offices over the sheep lifted his heart to the great Sh'ephefd-r-n'ow the vast heavens above him prompted tho inquiry, "What is man,...

The Voice of Autumin. BY WILTJAM CULLEN BRYANT. There comes, from yonder height, A soft repining sound, Where forest leaves are bright And fall, like flakes of light, To the ground. It is the autumn breeze, That, lightly floating on, Just skims the weedy leas, • Just stirs lhe glovting trees,' . Arid is gone; He moans, by sedgy brook,. And visits, with a sigh, The last pale flowers that look From out-their simny nook, At the sky. O'er shoutins children flies The light October wind, And kissing cfieets and eyes, He leaves their merry cries Far behind. And wanders on, to make That soft, uneasy sound By distant wood and lake Where distant fountains Weak From the ground. No bower where maidens dwell Can win a moment's stay; Nor fair untrodden dell: He sweeps the Upland swell, And away ! . Mpurn'st thou thy homeless state? Oh', soft repining wind ! That early seekst anil late The test it is thy fate Not to find. Not on the mountain's breast, Not on the ocean's shore, In all the East an...

"One of the Opposition.'* The penchant for political notority could very properly be classed amongmental aberaiious, if not termed a disease, which neithei medicine or scalpel can reach to cure. The symptoms of this disease, when it attacks the head, is a marked deoire to write and publish 'cards," and whenever the heart is affected, these ''cards'*' abound wilh the most ridicu lous atserion. and such bare faced falsehoods as can only excite ridicule and contempt.— But when this disease becomes a dangerous insanily, civil people are bound to protect themselves against the maniac, "by such means as first come within their possession. For these causes and leasons we are induced to notice Ira C. Mitchell, "an eminent lawyer" of this borough, who has lately given such practical evidence of laboring under the desease above described, that we deem it neces-ary to resort to the truth in order to protect ourselves from his inuendoes and his piiyale and public assaults of falsehood.

Political and Personal. The Illinois Democratic Central Committee has received a letter from Vice President Breckenridge, urging the le-election of Senator Donglas: He says he cannot endorse the course of Senator Douglas, during the late session of Congress, upon the Kansas question ; but that question having since been practically settled,| and Douglas being the leader of the Democracy of Illinois—in--their present fight against "Black Republicanism," he sympathises with him, desires his success, and trusts that the Democracy of the State which has never given a sectional vote will not r,ow be found laggard in their duly to the Constitution and Union. Dr. Leroy, the Administration candidate for Congress in the Thud district of Illinois, in a speech delivered at Bloomington, on Thursday night, withdrew from the canvass, and advised his friends to support the whole regular democratic or Doughs ticket. Hon, David Wilmot is re-elecied President Judge of the Judicial district compos...

The Next House of Representatives.^- The Albany Evening Journal has a probable estimate based upon the elections that have already taken place, as well as upon the chances in relation to those which are yet lo occur, and it gives the fol owing as the result: Opposition _ J24 Administration *13 This we regard as exceedingly moderate, and greatly below the probability. That the Ad> ministration will be in a signal minority in the next House, we consider as beyond all question. There cannot, indeed, be a doubt upon the subject. Sporting Intelligence.--The Horse Fair at New Castle last week was well attended, and tbe sport is said to have been of the first order. The pacing match came off on Wednesday, and brought together, for the third lime, we believe, Felix Laverly's "Thunderer" end Sam Keys' "Conemaugu."

Example The influence of example is far more powerful than the inculcations of precept. We become convinced of this fact the more we observe the developement and progress of society—and there are few who will not admit that we have too much preaching and loo little practicing, among those who seek to reform society in its real or imagined evils. It is not possible that men-can organize communities, free from all corruption—nor do we hope ever to reach a position in this life, which will render us perfect in the sight of God. But is there not much that could be accomplished .towards elevating ourselves, and thus tend to the elevation of others by example 1 We think there is—and we also think that every man has his influence in this woild. for good or for evil. It is an influence, too, which can be easHf%nd quietly weilded, and as it triumphs over others it will be the easier achieved. We are imitative by nature —prone to follow example with more alacrity than in yielding obedie...

The democratic Party. The Pennsylvanian and other journal?, claiming to be the organs of Democracy, in stead of going tD work to mend the breaches which have been made in that party's organization, indulges its disappointment and chagrin by abusing every prominent Democrat who took an independent position in the late contest.. This display of petulnace does not comport with the former dignity and unwavering courage of that journal, and we doubt if it will have any affect on the men whom it is intended to : nnihilate, nor will it change the sentiments of the people who assisted in the late political triumphs. The. fact is, the Democratic party needed a defeat as much as a sick man needs an emetic—and fiom the bile which has been ejected by this emetic defeat, we wonder that the party had not, befote the medicine was administered, collapsed from internal convulsion. The Democracy of Pennsylvania became corrupt with the overthrow of Know-Nothingism—and with the reading uf James B...

Another Polar Expedition.—The President of the Boston (Mass.) Natural History Society, has received a letter from Dr. Isaac Haynes, one of the companions of the late Dr. Kane, announcing his intention of making another attempt to reach the North Pole, and asking for the influence of the society in behalf of the object. The matter was referred to a committee. Uettisc Salty-—The Pennsylvanian, in an article abusive of Forney, says: "rf Col-John W. Forney will only give up the profession of being a Democrat, he. or any one like him, will have the unanimous consent of all true Democrats to join the abolitionists, or the Devil, if il suits him. It is rumored in Washington City that there will be a change in the Cabinet. The Attorney General is to be transferred, and the Commissioner of Patents is to take liis place. Mr. Clay, of Pa., Minister. I.q Peru, has been recalled.
