Job, ihe honest, upwrighl and patient, waa a farmer, and his endurance has passed into a proverb." Spcr'ates was a farmer, and yet wedded fo his calling the glory of his immortnl philosophy.

To these may be added a host of others who sought peace and repose in the cultivntion of their mother earth ,* the enthusinstic Lafayetle ; the steadfast Pickering, the scholastic Jefferson, the fiery Randolph, oil found an Eldorado o...

Vows.—A country parson preaching frorr the text, " Vow nnd pay unto the*Lord you 'i vows," in course of his remarks proved pretty conclusively 1 that after a person had made a vow it was his duty to perform it. Directly after service, s sort of Indian, not at aJI companionable to say the least, came up to ihe reverend divine, saying—" I vow I go home with you." " Then you must go," was the unhesitating reply. * . " f vow I stay to supper," said he on arriving at the gate. There was nq alternative, and the minister inviied him in. " I vow i stay all night," was the cool assertion, as he drew away from 'the table. The good man saw that submission had ceased to be a virtue and -without discomfiture, eaid—11 You are welcome to-night, but I vow you shall leave in the morning."

What was your Father ?—When Orme president in ihe export warehouse of Madras, Mr. Davidson, who acted under him, was one morning m breakfast asked by Mr. Ormp of what profession his father was. He replied that he was a saddler. " And pray," said Orme," why did he not make you a saddler ?" " I was always whimsical," said Mr. Davidson, " and rather chose to try my fnriune, as you have done, in (he East fndia Company's service. But pray, sir," continued he, '• <vbM profession was your father 1" " . " My father," answered the historian, rather sharply, " was a gentleman." " And why,,' retorted Davidson, with great simplicity, " did he not breed you up a gentleman !"

Short and to the point is the foregoing; no sympathy will it excite ; the terms in .which it is presented are too much like the tabular statements of the weekly bills of mortality to move the general heart to grief—the reader] reads it and passes on to the next paragraph wilh simple indifference.

A BAT STORY The following rat story was related lo us by a neighbor, and did it not come from a source which entitles it to the utmost credit, we should feel somewhat dubious about the truth of the matter; but as it is, we believe every word of it: Our neighbor lays that he was very much hsrrassed by these animals, arjd had devised various plans for .their destruction., Among the expedients employed was a barrel placed uprig ht, which he had prepared by sawing a bole in the upper head about .six inches square. Bait was put in this barrel near the bottom, just.above a few inches of waler, hoping the rats might be induced to jump in and be drowned. Prom time to time the delicious morsel . was taken *way and no- rats enirapperj.—.
