EASILY ASUpB.: The French seem to us to be in general a nation of children—amused with the smallest things, "pleased with a rattle and tickled with a straw." They will stop in the street , and stand gazing with the greatest interest on two dogs atplay, br.somethi ng as trivial as that. We have seen full-grown men playing at ball witk _children, in the garden of the Tuilleries on a Sunday, and enjoying the game quite as much as the children. Men and women patronize, with the greatest delight, those dizzy arrangements found in all .places of public resort, those wooden. horses which go around in a circle by means of a crank. It is well known with what facility a crowd can be collected _iu Paris. One has but to stop, and point at anything, aiiid he will be immediately surrounded. We were much amused, the other evening, by an illustration of this, which we saw in the Passage des Panoramus on the Bouleya,rds. A large erowd? almost blocking up the passage, had collected before the win...

TEACH THE CHILD TO SING. The Musical Review thus answers the question, "At what age should children commence vocal music?" A child should be trained to the tones of musical sounds, as he is to words, from early infancy. The mother and the father, the nurse,—-all three about him are and will be his first instructors,:and if in their teachings they utterly neglect music, much valuable time will be lost—time that can never afterwards be wholly recovered. First, he should be made to hear tones, either vocal or instrumental, or both. Very soon, even before he can articulate words, he will begin to imitate them, and will himself produce tones. Simple melodies, chaste and beautiful, united to pure and appropriate words, should be constantly presented to his ear by the mother's voice. Very soon the child will learn to sing; it will be as it is often called, singing hy rote—the only way in which any one, juvenile or adult, can first be taught. If the child has been thus accustomed to hear ...

THE MEMORY OF CHILDHOOD. It is wonderful how these simple, early memories, which lie dormant during those fervid morning hours when the soul is doing its forenoon work, come gliding softly back as we lie in the noontide shadej we"look backward past the hill of difficulty, the giant's cave, and all the rugged, broken path to that beautiful meadow-land of our childhood. Fonder is _tffe roof that sheltered us—whether it be a stately mansion or a one-story brown cottage, weighs little in our affections now—there is the orchard on the hill-side—its favorite trees all remembered by name, the little brooklet, whose every turn and eddy is daguerreotyped, here gurgling noiselessly over its pebbles—there spreading itself into a broad shallow, which once looked vast and awful as the oceans—there are the steppingstones which we crossed with balanced arms and timid misgivings to the cowslip path on the other side—those stepping-stones! how natural they look! How many little tender bare feet ha...

_Jatiilf _GittU. THE FLOWER AND DEW-DROPBY MARIE ROSEAU. A tiny drop of crystal dew Fell from the sky above, And lighting in a flow_'ret_'s cup It nestled there in lore, * *°_Tfc mine!" the joyous blossom cried—"Of mine own.self a part! Nor sun, nor cloud, nor wind, nor rain, Shall force It from my heart!" The morning mists were scattered wide Beneath the sun's warm ray; And in the noonday's burning glare The dew-drop passed away. A cry of sorrow rent the ai_*r-The wailing for the dead; The anguish of a stricken heart That weeps its idol fled. Bat hark! there sounds a gentle voice, Like some _Eollan strain: It speaks to sooth the mourner's grief, And bid her hope again. _" It is not dead—that little gem—The object of thy love: The sunbeam on glad wings of light Hath carried it above!" The flow'ret raised her drooping head, . As grateful for relief: She listened to the cheering voice, : And stilled her selfish grief. " There are who mourn a treasure lost—A jewel rich and rare...

PEE_|C0Trs HABITS. " His habits were methodically exact; retiring early and ever at the same hour, he rose early alike in winter and in summer at the appointed moment, rousing himself instantly, though in the soundest sleep, at the first note of his alarm hell; never giving indiilgenee to lassitude or delay. To the hours which he gave to his pursuits he adhered as scrupulously as possible, never lightly, suffering them to be interfered with; now listening to his reader; now dictating what was to*be written; now using his own eyes sparingly for reading; now writing by the aid of simple machinery devised fpr those who are in darkness; now passing time in thoughtfully revolving hjs great theme. For this reason, at the period of his life when he rode much on horseback—and when he was an excellent and fearless rider—it was his choice and his habit to go out alone; and in his stated exercise on foot, you might be sure that, when by himself, his mind was shaping out work for the ...

THE INVITATION Come, sweet Spring, O, come, To thy woodland home, Where the lonely flower sleeps In the germ that Winter keeps, Snug in the ground, ¦ While the _saow he wildly heaps All around. . Gome, sweet Spring, release, Now thy efforts ease, Till upon the blooming land, Fresh from out the frost's cold hand All shall tell Of thee ;—Clad in robes of thine shall stand, In beauty free. ¦ Come, sweet spring, ne'er stay, Why, O, why, delay! While the songster gently calls. Perched upon the same old walls, Whence one Autumn day, " As the coming frost appalls, He flew away. Come, sweet spring, draw near, And the weary cheer, O'er whose cheek a pallor sits, O'er whose days a sorrow flits, Ever1 nov'ring by;—Thine to smooth the brow that knits With pain e' er nigh. Come, sweet Spring, O, haste, Make the wintry waste' Smile beneath the fresh-blown breath, Over _forest, over heath, Making gladsome, gay; Sing the song of Winter's death, Sing, nor stay. E. J. H.

"~ _^LECTTOIfEESlNG WlTK MONE Y. Money, we see it stated upon good authority, is now largely employed in elections. From-the recent investigations at Washington , it seems that the enormous sum of 870,000 was expended in Pennsylvania, ia the Presidential contest,of 1856, under the order of a campaign party;officer. How much more was spent during that struggle, in this State, we do not know; nor have we any knowledge of the money spent by the opposing party. For aught we know, it may have been as much, or more. In the late elections in Connecticut and Rhode Island, vast sums, it is said , were openly and unblushingly employed by all parties. Such a state of things is alarming, and should arouse every good citizen to active exertions to arrest the evil. Our laws are mostly good, wise, just. They are a legacy of priceless value. " What nation is so great, that hath statutes and judgments, so righteous as all this law ?" But how long will we enjoy this great boon , if our civil govern...
