Virtue, too, as well as vice, is clad In flesh and blood so well, that Plato had Beheld, when hUhigh fancy once embraced, Virtue with color, speech, and motion graced. IVILLCU. For some considerable time after the return of Nan to Crowshall, Amen Corner abstained from any positive ill. usage of the innocent and helpless object of bis hatred. Tbe old woman evidently possessed some hold over him which made him fearful of offending her; so true is it that our past misdeeds rise like licensing spectres for our puuishment or warning when we least expect to Hud ourselves confronted with them. There is a design in all I'rovidence permits; and struggle as the guilty may, the circle which his crimes have drawn around him, pliant ut tirst, gradually contracts, hardens with time, and ut last, instead of yielding to his efforts, turns to adamant, presses and crushes him.

A DRINKING SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
A DRINKING SONG. JOHN L . WILLIAMS. Mag hither now the rosy wint. Fill, fill your glasses to the brim ; And, while tha sparkling dew-drops shine. Drink till your eyes be damp and dim. Loud let your boisterous laughter ring; Let joke and spicy wit abound ; Your gayest, merriest chansons sing, Awhile these toasts are echoing round: Here*« to the lonely wiTes at home. Who wait and weep while we are gay. Who dread to see their husbands come, With staggering step, at break of day. They »hould be patient—'tis not meet That we with them should mope our nights; Their loving smiles and kisses sweet Will not compare with wine's delights. Here's to the children of the sot. Who hungering daily cry for bread. Or ragged mourn their life's sad lot. And shivering nestle in their bed ; What though their minds are running waste, Like gardens wildered o*er with weeds? Let us indulge kind Nature's taste— Nor, like sad monks, sit counting beads. Here's to the mothers whom we love— Would they were here t...
Old Proverbs. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Old Proverbs. I Better be the head of the yeomanry than tail of the gentry. Beware of a silent dog and still water. Daughters and dead fish are nae keeping w are. It is not easy to straighten in the oak the crook that grew in the sapling. There is many a good wife who cannot dance or sing well. You will never have a friend if you must have one without a failing. There is one nod wife in the country. and every man ou his wedding-day thinks he hath her. Lean liberty is better than fal slavery. That's but an empty purse that is fiill of other folks' money. One might as well be out of the world as lieloved by nobody in it. He that knows useful things, and not he that knows many things, is the wive man. As we must render an account of every idle word, so must we likewise of our idle silence." He is a worthless fellow who lives only for himself. Depwd not upon fortune, but conduct. Begin life with but little show, you may increase it afterwards. Advise not what is the most pleasant, but t...
Influence of the Smile in giving Beauty of Expression. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Influence of the Smile in giving Beauty of Expression. A beautifoi smile is to the female countenance what the Minbeam is to the landscaiio. It embellishes an interior face, and redeems aa ugly one. A smile, however, should not become habitual, or in.-i---pfchty is the result; nor should the mouth break into a smile on one side, the other remaining passive and unmoved, for this imparts an air of deceit and grotesipii-nc.vs t „ the face. A disagreeable smile distorts the lines of beauty, and is more repulsive than a frown. There are many kinds of smiles, each having a distinctive character—some announce goodness and sweetness—others betray sarcasm, bitterness, and pride—some soften the countenance by their languishing tenderness—others brighten it by their brilliant and spiritual vivacity. Gazing and poring before a mirror cannot aid ih acquiring beautiful smiles half so well as to turn the "we inward, to watch that the heart keeps unsullied from the reflection of evil, and is illumi...
The Hiccup. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Hiccup. We have often heard that people can find no remedy for that annoying complaint, the hiccup or hiccough. 1 may mention that some time ago 1 hail occasion to call at a Highland shooting-lodge, and on entering the kitchen, where two Knglish sportsmen were sitting, I happened to be attacked by a fit of hiccup, and must have cut rather an awkward figure. I observed one of the sportsmen take a piece of gray paper from his pocket, and after lighting and blowing it out, he started up, and, without saying a word, held the fnmes of it opposite my mouth and nostrils. I started, to be sure, but was quite astonished to find myself ironic diately cured, and 1 have since seen it frequent' tried on others, and always proving a " a never-fa, - , ing remedy."

Did he not say Beans ? Two travelers put up for the night at a tavern. Karlv in the morning they absconded witliont reckoning with their liost. also stealing from him a laj of beans. A few years alter, they passed the road in company again. Again they asked lor lodgings at the game inn. The identical landlord was yet at Ms peat. In tin- evening the landlord was in ono eonter of the bar-room, talking in n •oppressed voice to one of his neighbors about ■ swarm of bees. Hi- two rlisbonest nests were seated in another part of the room, and indistinctly hearing the talk about bees, one said to the other": •• I &gt;id be not say beau f '•1 think he did.' was Ihe reply; aud quickly they were missing.

Place for old Women. Very few of the judges of the inferior courts hi early colonial times were learned in the law, or in any thing else, as to thut matter, except politics, and hence did not always inspire respect Mr. Ruggles, generally known in Massachusetts ns the "Brigadier," in consequence of his services at Crown Point and Lake George, was born in Rochester. Mass. and commenced practice in his native town,about 1735. He was a very able lawyer, but somewhat rough and uncouth in his manners. He was one day trying a case at Plymouth, and a very aged woman was on the stand as a witness. Being feeble, she asked Mr. Haggles al she could not sit down. He told her " yes," and seeing no other convenient place, motioned her to take a seat on the bench with the judges. She accordingly went hobbliii" up to where the judges were, and they asked her who sent her there. She said Mr. Ruggles. The court then turned to Mr. Ruggles, aud inquired what he meant by sending her there. '• Why " said ...
Slave High Life. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Slave High Life. We take the following description of slave high life from ulm-teads "Journey in the Seaboard Slave Stale-:" " He was a good violinist and dancer, and. two nights a Week, taught a negro dancing-school from which he received two dollars a night, which of course he si»ent for his own pleasure.

The Religion of Mahommed. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
The Religion of Mahommed. The London Timet says that us regards religious belief. Mnhoinmcdans are as free, if not freer, than the followers of any religion. Kverv man is left to himself to search after truth ; ami toleration of dogmas is carried so Tar that the Sheik-ul Islam, by whose co-operation Mahmoud carried out his reforms, was well known to disbelieve in the Koran, and yet he remained up to his death in his place without ever being molested. In the same way, there is nothing in the Mahommedan religion which can be called priesthood—every man may read prayers publicly and preach. The Ulemas are only doctors of the Mahommedan law, inherited by the Turks from the early Arab Caliphs, which it is their duty to explain, and over the observances of whicli they have to watch. This law is composed of the decisions of the most prominent Mahommedan doctors of all ages, on every matter connected with the external religious observances, but it has nothing whatever to do with dogmas.
Happiness. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 1 June 1856
Happiness. All real and wholesome enjoyments possible to man have been just as possible to him since tirst he was made of the earth as they are low, and the are possible to him chiefly in peace. To watch the corn grow and the blossom Bat, to draw hard breath over ploughshare and spade, to read, to think, to love, to hope, to pray—these are the things to make man happy ; they have always had the power of doing these—they never will have power to do more.

Protection. THE OLDEST INHABITANT. " CnliTornia is a rough country."' What remark is oftener made and what can be more true? It is roogn in the mountains, but there it is the pold is farad. The tawaetat anil manners of a part of its payola*tail are rough, but among them there an' many " roogfa diamonds" that only require pofigWanj, to make tliem ornaments and valuable meinlnrs of any society, 'l'he rough treatment and rubs and jolts tliey meet with occasionally. ■CXI over, make the good points of their character Hash forth just as hard knorks bring sparks from Hints.
