Church's Great Fall—Niagara, and Gig-NOtJx_'sNiAGARA.—-These are reaUy noble pictures of one of those scenes which make an American justly proud of his country. Both are excellent, though the palm is generally conceded to belong to the former. This is a view of the Great Fall, with landscape and river scenery extending 9 miles up the river. The tumultuous play of the water for some distance above the final leap, and the vast and stupendous appearance of the fall itself are depicted with startling fidelity. The _taiabow thrown across the mist \®§ _^_j_^_SJiUariy luminous appearance, tho upper portion of it especially seeming to glow With unborrjowed light. Our friend Mr. J. 8.

MOTHEE'S LOVE. A Highland widow left her home early one morning, in order to reach, before evening, the residence of a kinsman who had promised . to assist her to pay her rent. She carried on her back her only child, a boy two years old. The journey was a long one. (I was following the same wild and lonely path when I first heard the narrative I am about to relate.) The mountain track, after leaving the small village by the sea-shore where the widow lived, passes through a green valley, watered by a peaceful stream which flows from a neighboring lake; it then winds along the margin of the solitary lake, until, near its farther end, it suddenly turns into an extensive copse-wood of oak and birch. From this it emerges half-way up a rugged mountain-side; and entering a dark glen, through which a torrent rushes amidst great masses of granite, it at last conducts the traveller, by a zig-zag ascent, to a narrow gorge, which is hemmed in upon every side by giant-precipices; overhead ...

' PHYSICAL TRAINING. We think it _noKat aJJ improbable that the establishment of gymnasia at our two principal seats of learning—Harvard ;and Yale—withm the last few months, is an event which; little attention as it excites, will influe ' nWthe future of the _Country a good deal more than the " organization of the House." The political- institutions of a nation have of course not a little to do with its destiny, but the health and happiness of the individuals who live under them have a great deal more. Constitutions and acts of Congress, and decisions of Courts, are after all but paper and ink. lney owe, we were going to say, all their real value to the mental and moral ch aracteristics of the men who are to obey them. A great many races and nations have had just a,s good laws on paper as ever we have had. They have boasted systems of jurisprudence more logical, more scientifically arranged, anil more comprehensive. It is not in legislation that we can ever hope to " defy com...

"tffil _GBIT BAEE-IEGGED LADDIE." Sixty years ago a stout bony youth of eighteen years old, who had been known among his neighborhood as "a^' grit bare-legged laddie,"—called on a poor village: schoolmaster, arid said—./*- '! Would like to attend your evening school, sir:" «Wb_,ftt ( do, you wish to study?" asked the teacher/ • "> ! "I want to learn to read and write, replied the lad. The teacher looked-in to the- lad's face with a somewhat scornful glance, shrugged his shoulders, ' «_% ||i_4 _^11 , you can attend." Now if _tfiit bony lad had said to the teacher, _tflmean to beeonWa great inventor, to be companlon of rich and noble men, to hold conversation with kings, and to write my name among the great men of the world," I dare say the teacher _SoulA _h _' aVecaiieA the boy a fool, for cherishing such wild dreams.

ABOUT TWE MONTH OF MARCH. _ThS thMmontH of the year is March with 30 days. Winter and Spring have ever contended for the possession of this month; neither one can make it entirely his own, and they still to this _day keep up their contention, notwithstanding the alinanaq-man has stepped between them and tried to settle it so that on the *20th, or at most on the 21st day of Maroh, Spring shall be allowed to reign iri the'llMi But Winter says—"What do I care for the almanac-man? He may prescribe and print what he pleases; if I want to remain in the earth, remain I will, as Jong as it suits me, even to the end of the;month!"_t And so he really does in many instances, but generally old Winter as dWten back by young Spring, and can linger a,_whil_^ only in rough regions where the snow can hide itself deeply in the gorges and valleys. At last he tnust retire even from these places. Spring hunts out his old enemy to ooutend with him, and the patches of snow left here and there, are b...

.Jf atisiif §_iuU. KINP HEABTS. Let bat the heart be beautiful, And I care not for the face, I heed not that the form may want Pride, dignity, or grace. Let the mind be filled with glowing thoughts And the soul with sympathy, And I care not if the cheek be pale, Or the eye lack brilliancy. What though the cheek be beautiful, It soon must lose its bloom; The eye ' s bright lustre soon will fade, •' In the dark, and silent tomb; But the glory of the mind will live, Though the joyous life depart, And the magic charm can never die Of a true and noble heart. The lips that utter gentle words Have a beauty all their own, And more I prize a kindly voice Than music's sweetest tone; ' And though its _soundsrare harsh or shrill, If the heart within beats free, And echoes back each glad impulse, 'Tis all the world to me. OUR BABY. Did you ever see our baby? Little Tot; With her eyes so sparkling bright, And her skin so lily white, lips and cheeks of rosy light—vt Tell you what, She is...

"I WANT TO BE AN ANGEL." A correspondent has sent us the following query: Will some one be kind enough to inform us who is the author of this beautiful and popular children's hymn? Where and when did it first appear? M. S. To this query we are permitted to give the following reply: As far as we can understand, "I want to be an Angel," is " a voice from the spirit land." One Sabbath, some ten years ago, in one of the churches in this city, (Philadelphia,) a young lady was teaching her infant school about "the Happy Land" where God and the angels dwell—and as her fancy, guided by the words of Scripture, described the blessedness and-glory of those who stand around the throne day and night praising .the Lamb, many a childish face glowed with enthu siasm. One little dark-eyed girl, (not more than five years of age,) was so engrossed, as unconsciously to clasp her hands together, and looking wistfully into her teacher's face, exclaimed aloud, "Oh ! /want to be an angel." A few da...

A ROMANCE IN LITTLE. The following story, in which Judge Gould _tff the Supreme Court figures, is related by die Troy Times:— "During the first year of his term, Judge Gould, in riding from Albany to Schoharie to hold Court, saw upon one of the front seats of the stage' coach a little girl about seven years of age, very thinly clad, and evidently a child of, poverty. He invited her to sit by him, folded her well in a comfortable wrapper he wore, and, entered into conversation.- The girl, who was bright and intelligent, told him that, having lost her home at Sloan's, on the road, she was on her way to find her brother in Schoharie, the' only relative she seemed to know anything of, in the hope that he would provide for,.her. On reaching Schoharie the brother, a worthless country fiddler, was found, but refused to take charge of his sister,, declaring he had already enough to provide for. The Judge then directed the keeper of the tavern where ,he was stopping to care for the l...
