(PfeteltmuHts gjadmjr A True Story for the Boys. . BY EEV. TO H. FEIES. During the great rebellion it was my good fortune to be chaplainof the Fourth Delaware Volunteers, in which there was a drummer boy named Frankliii Walker. While stationed at Fairfax Court House, Va., we were assigned to a division of the 22d army corps, under command of General Corcoran. The General, having lost his first wife a short time before, while there married a second, and brought her to his quarters, and, according to custom, all the bands of the various regiments ser¬ enaded him. When our band was invited into the General's house to be treated with"Good Irish Whiskey," our little hero, the drummer boy, refused to drink. It was immediatel y told the General, who took the cup himself and said, "Come my little man, you -will drink with the General, won't you ?' "No, thank you, General," replied Franklin, "the last advice my parents gave me before I left home was, 'don't touch or taste intoxicatin...

Contentment On a hot summer's day, I was standing near a well, when a little bird flew down seeking water. There' was, indeed, a large trough hear the well, but it was empty, and I grieved for a moment to think that little creature must go away thirsty; but it settled upon the edge of the trough, bent its little head forward, then raised it again, spread its wingsj'and soared away singing ; its thirst was appeased. ' I walked up-te-tke-stes&^ork, I saw a Uttle.hole about the size of a wren's egg. The water held there had been a" source of revival and refreshment; it had found enough for the present and desired no more. This is contentment. Again I stood by a lovely, sweet-smelling flower, and there came a bee humming and sucking ; and it chose the flower for its field of sweets.— But the flower Jhad no honey, This I knew, lor it had no nectary. What then thought I, will the bee do ? It came buzzing 6ut of the end to take a further flight but it spied the stamina full...

A Great Farmer's Maxims. The successful life of Mr. Jacob Strawn, the prince of American farmers, is attributed to the close observance of the. following maxims, originated by himself: When you wake up do not roll over, but roll out. It will give you tune , to ditch all your sloughs, break them, harrow them and, sow them with red .clover One bushel of clover to two bushels of timothy is enough. . Make your fencing high and strong, so that it will keep cattle and pigs out. If you liave Brush, make your lotB secure and keep your hogs from the corn, for if the corn is kept clean they will eat it better, than if it is not Be sure to get your handf to bed by seven o'clock—they will rise early by force of " circumstances. Pay a hand, if he is a poor hand, all you promise- him; if he is a good hand pay him a little more; it will encourage him to do still better. / . Always feed your hands as well as you do yourself, for the laboring men are the bone and sinew of the land and ought to be ...

How the DarlingsJKeep Cool. When the'female mind sets about making the female body cool and comfortable, fun sets in. If the subject belongs to the better class—the upper two dozen—has on a delicate linpn gnrtnprtt: nayt- her pprsnn called , well never mind what it is called. It is a garment very low in the neck, brief in the skirt, and deficient in the avms. It is elaborately worked in the bosom. We owe that description to Brown's young man, who is rooming about a mile from the city, looks down upon the grounds of the Hon. , where on Mondays the wearing apparel of the family flutter and kick-upon-the line while them naughty breezes take liberties with them. • Over this -delicate indelicate garment a pair of French corsets or stays are clasped.

Life.—Men who have half a dozen iroijs in the fire are not " the ones to go crazy. ' It is the man of voluntary -or compelled leisure, who mopes and pines and thinks himself into the mad house or the grave. Motion is all nature's law. Action is man's salvation, physical and mental ; and yet nine out.of ten are wishfully looking forward to the coveted hour when they shall have leisure to do nothing—the very siren that'has lured to death many a "successful-" man. He only is truly wise who lays himself out to work till life's latest hour, and that is the H.an who will live the longest, and will live to most purpose. - • A Pretty Romance.—There is a pretty romance, or rather superstition, connected with Lake Copack, N.

Keep your Top Cool.—The closing words of James Parton in his article" on "Artemus Ward" are as follows: "He was not a deep'drinker. Ho was a map of strong appetite. It was the nights wasted in eonviviahty, which, his system needed for sleep'that sent him tohis grave forty ^ years before his tune. For men of his position and cast of character, for all editors, literary men, and artists, there is only one safely—teetotalisnii He should have taken the advice of the stage driver on .the plains to whom he offered some whiskey, and I recommended it strongly to countless hosts who read- this paper evdry week: -'I don't drink, I won't drink,, and-I don't want to see any one else drink. 'I'm of the opinion of those mountains—keep your top cool.— They've got snow and I've got brains; that's all the difference." '

A Beautiful Idea.—A.way up among the Alleghenies there is a spring so small that a single ox on a summer's day could drain' , it dry. It steals its unobtrusive way among the hills, till it spreads out in the beautiful Ohio.. Thence it stretches away a thousand miles, leaving on its banks more thim a hundred villages and cities,.and many a cultivated farm —then joining the Misissippi it stretches away some Awelve miles more till it falls into the emblem of eternity. Itisone ^ of the greatest tributaries to the ocean, which obedient only to Fod, shall roar till the angels, with one foot on the sea and the other on the land, shall swear that time shall'be no more. So with mortal influence. It is a rill—a rivulet—an ocean, and isboundlessand fathomless as eternity.—Mirror.
