Parental Teaching If parents would not trust a child on the back of a wild horse without a bit or bridle, let them not permit them to go forth into the world unskilled in self-government. If a child is passionate, teach him'by gentle means to curb his temper. If he is greedy, cultivate liberality in him. If he is sulky, charm him out of it by encouraging frank' ness and good humor. ' If he is ignorant, accustom him to exertion, and train him to perform even onerous duties with alacrity. If pride comes in to make obedience reluctant, subdue him either by counsel or discipline. In short, give your children the habit of overcoming their besetting sins. Let them acquire from experience that confidence in themselves which gives security to the practised horseman, even on the back of a high-strung steed, arid they will triumph over difficulties and dangers which beset them in the paths of life.

Social Kindness How- sweet is social affection! When the world is dark without, we have light within. sWhen cares disturb the breast—when sorrow broods around the heart—what joy gathers in the circle of love! . We forget the world and all its animosities, while blest with social kindness. That man cannot be unhappy who has hearts that vibrate in sympathy with his own—who. is cheered by the smiles of affection and the voice of tenderness. Let the world be dark and cold—let the hate1 and animosity gather about in the place of business—but when he enters the ark of love—his own cherished circle—he forgets all^hese, and the cloud passes from his brow, and the sorrow from his heart. The Warm sympathies of his wife and children, dispel every shadow, and ho fe'els a thrill of joy in his bosom that words are inadequate to express. He who is a stranger to the joys of social kindness, has not begun to live.

The Boy the Father of the. Man. Solomon said many centuries ago: "Lven a child is known by -his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right." Some people seem to think that children have no character at all. On the contrary, an observing eye sees in these young creatures the signs of what they are likely to be for life. . When I see a boy in haste to spend every penny as soon as he gets it, I think it a sign that he will be a spendthrift. When I see a. boy hoarding up his pen? nies, and unwilling to part with them for any good purpose, I think it a sign he will be a miser. When I see a boy or girl always Jooking out for him or herself, and disliking to share good things wjj:h others, I think it a' sign that the Child will grow up a very selfish person. When I see boys and girls often quarreling, Lthirik it a sign that they will be violent and hateful jnen and women. When I see a little boy willing to taste strong drink, I think' it) a sign that he will be a dru...

The Child at Prayer Twas summer eve—the rosy light Had fadcd.frora the sky, And stars came twinkling, pure and bright, Through the blue arch on high; The western breezes softly stole To kiss the-sleeping flow'r, And nature wore her sweetest smile To bless the twilight hour. There sat within a. curtain'd room, A mother yb' ung and fair What voice comes softly through the gloom: 'Tis childhood's voice in pray'r; A cherub boy is kneeling now, Besides that mother's knee. She who had taught him when to bow Before the Deity. A father on the distant deep, A sister slumb'ring near, '•' * A babe upon his mother's breast, And that kind mother dear; For every living thing he loves. His pray'r ascends to heaven, And for himself he humbly asks Each sin may be forgiven. And oft, in after years, when grief Shall how his spirits down, And the world, the cold and bitter world, Shall meet him with a frown—Or, when allur'd from virtue's path, He treads a dang'rous way. Oh ! ho will turn to thi...

Migration of Norway Rats Select mifsttllnnv The Lemming, or Norway rat, an animal which, within the past fifteen or twenty years, has been introduced into this country, is a.native of the northern and mountainous districts of Lapland and Norway. It is chiefly remarkable for its occasional migrations in innumerable bodies. These occur at particular, but somewhat variable period; being caused by a deficiency of food in the native haunts of the animal, to which may perhaps be added a prescience of unfavorable seasons; ns it has been observed that the chief migrations are made in the fall of such years as are followed by severe winter. Having assembled from all parts and formed themselves into an immense army, the lemmings descend from the mountains upon the plains, moving invariably in a' direct line, and in total disregard of all obstacles, with the only exception, that if an impassible rock intervene, they go round it, and then resume their former straight direction. If a r...

Natural History of the Sabbath. The Creator has given us a natural restorative, sleep ; and a moral restorative—Sabbath-keeping; and it is ruin to dispense with either. Under the pressure of high excitement, individuals have passed^ weeks together with little sleep or none; but when the process is long continued, (he,overdriven powers rebel, and fever, delirium and death come on; nor can the natural amount be systematically curtailed without corresponding mischief. The" day of- rest does not steal over us like the hour of slumber. It does not entrance us almost whether we will or not; but addressing us as intelligent beings, our Creator assures us that we need it, and bids us notice its returns, and court its renovation. And if, going in the face of the Creator's kindness, we force1 ourselves to work all days alike, it is not long till we pay the' forfeitl The mental worker—the man of, business, or the man of letters, finds his ideas becoming torpid and: slow; equipoise of b...

Yankee Pride and Yankee Skill. A gullant tar, who recently returned: from a three years cruise in the frigate} ; Brandywine, noticed in one pf thejpapers; a few days since, an article copied from thoi "Lo'udon Illustrated News," stating that some skillful penman in England had, with' his pen, written the Lord's Prayer in a" circle not larger than an English sixpence in circumference. " Jack," with the usual characteristic pride of his countryrpen, and having due confidence in his own skill, immediately determined to write the same prayer in a circle the size of ani-Englishi three pence, which is little larger Ithan our gold dollar. - j The difficult task was accomplished; and yesterday with becoming yet modest pride, he exhibited lo us the result of (lis labor, which was indeed a wondrous specimen of penmanship^.

Telocity of Light The velocity with which light passes from place to plaee is so great, that, with' respect to terrestrial distances, there seems sto bono lime occupied «in its passage. But, by means of astronomy, not only hasftho-propagation of light been demonstrated, but also its velocity calculated with gfeat precision. From lite observations whjch have been made, it would seem that light moves with the prodigious ' velocity of $00,000 miles in a sccond*of lime; and, consequently, would pass around the* earth! in the eighth part of a second. But" to] forma clearer conception of its swiftness, let us suppose that the sun were jsuddenly to oe extinguished. Now immense as fa-the distance.^ the sun from our globe—-f)5,000,-000 of miles-—only about sevcn^Vnihutes and a half would elapse before we \yould bo shrouded, in darkness.

The Whig Party. Some members of this party, says the Hartford Coutant; one of the best Whig papers of the country, appear to have forgotten the principles on which it was originally formed, and are desirous to bend it from its original purposes to render it subservient to minor and less important ends. The Whig Party in the United States was formed as a conservative party, and aimed at the 'following objects j It desired the preservation of our old institutions, of the Constitution as it had been construed, of the Union with all its blessings. It was opposed to any innovations that would corrupt the purity and integrity of these institutions—that would place new and forced constructions on^he principles of the Constitution, or endanger the perpetuity and stability of the Union. It desired the restriction of the various departments of the government within the sphere of each ; and, in consequence of the peculiar circumstances then existing, was opposed to the arbitrary and ca...

Morals in Harrisburg. The Harnsburg " Whig State Journal, takes the following notice of the morals of Harrisburg. It cerfainly does not speak well for the Capitol of the State, por for the faithful carrying into effect of the late gambling law passed by the Legislature.

Our town is infested with a number of professional pickpockets, who watch every opportunity to lure the unwary into their " dens," and fleece them of their money. There are several establishments of this description, where crowds congregate nightly to " fight the tiger," and rose their money and reputations.
