Wiittll****** THE MORALS OF TRADEAn ancient writer, named Hosba, once said, speaking of a tribe of men and likening it to an individual: "He is a merchant, the balances of deceit are in his hand; he loveth to oppress. However true this may have been ot merchants, as such, in a past age, it is not true of all merchants of the last or the present age; and, therefore, while the deceitful ness, knavery, selfishness, and dishonOTableness of merchants among us should be, as they have been and will be in this paper, held up to opprobriu m it is right that the upright, indep endent, truthful, and " princely _merchants should be commended, in contrast with those.of an opposite character, so that the balances, in which are weig hed the just and the unjust, should be held by Justice. Auctioneers. A countryman strayed into a city auction-store, and stood near the auctioneer while he was rapidly selling various fabrics, stating that thcost so much sterling that the colors were ey , fast,...

GOD DON'T FORGET A young wife (from the State of Connecticut,) who bad left fortune, _friend Christ, -was permitted in her distant missionary home to embrace a little son. The babe was named Willie for his father; and when but afew days old_^ris1 consecrated by his_^believing parents to the Lora" in the solemn rite _qf baptism. To his mother especially, this Was a -sacred transaction'. She felt that she had placed upon his infant brow the seal of a divine promise; and her faith was unwavering that the blessings of the covenant would rest upon him. A heathen woman living in the mission family, witnessed the solemn cereniony, and made many inquiries as to its natijr _' e and design. When infornied that the application of the baptismal waters had in itself no saving efficacy, she exclaimed in the broken English which she had learned, " What de use, den ? You no live to bring up baby—[the missionary's wife was in failing health] his fader die perhaps —-no bocly tell of dis;—-bab y...

.— -MBtmUS, _AJTD THE OLD CLOCK. v _Qne Sabbath day Arthur was left at home alone, while all the rest of the family attended church. Instead of regarding the day as he should_, in the _quiet perusal of the Bible and other good books, he made it a day of self-amusement. As soon as all were gone, Arthur began to search all the curious nooks and corners of the time-honored dwelling. The garret was explored and manV rare curiosities exhtnned. Ancient desks and drawers were examined, revealing their curious .contents to his impertinent and childish curiosity. An old clock stood in the corner, with a tall, gaunt; brown case, Within the dark, hollow closet, Arthur had often peered, but ho had not been allowed to examine very closely the mysteries of the clock case. How was a fine opportunity. He operied the narrow door. The long pendulum Was swinging back and forth at regular intervals with a loud tick, tick, tick, tick. Two long, cylindrical) tin weights, and two very little lead we...

IBACCO. From a book en led "The Use and Abuse of Tobacco," by John tzars, late Professor of Surgery to the Koyal C ege of Surgeons, and lately Senior Operating S ;eon to the Royal Infirmary, of Edinburgh, we e fact the following: Sailors and navva smoke more than any other class. The sailor _^s from eight ounces to sixteen ounces of tobpo per month; the navvy, eight or ten ouncef but part of this chewed. Bad taste in the mop, with sometimes an angry, irritable point on Ie tongue, lips, or fauces , which prevents himrdm smoking for a-few days, are the only bad rests I have observed. It does not appear to affecjhe nervous system of either of these classes. % miner uses above eight ounces per month. Dffcen breathing an impure air, the tone of hisiystem is lowered, and then tobacco exerts its _baful influence on him. He is subject to dyspeptibilious and nervous attacks, while those who dopt smoke are invariably the healthiest. Now, let the sailo: t navvy take to sedentary employ...

_£x_«_ilg €\tt\t. THE MOTHER WHO HAS A CHILD AT SEA. BY KUZA. COOK. _There ' s an eye that looks on the swelling cloud, Folding the moon in a funeral shroud That watches the stars dying, one by one, Till the whole of heaven's calm light hath gone; There's an ear that lists to the hissing surge, v<jU the mourner turns to the anthem dirge, That eye 1 that ear! oh, whose can they be But a mother's who has a child at sea? n. There's a cheek that's getting ashy white. As the tokens of storm come on with night—There's a form that's fixed at the lattice pane, To mark how the gloom gathers o'er the main, WKtte the yeasty billows lash the shore "WitH loftier sweep and heavier roar—That cheek! that form! oh, whose can they be, But * mother's who hath a son at sea ? HI. The Wishing whistle chills her blood, As the North wind hurries to scourge the flood; And the Icy shiver spreads to her heart As the first red lines of lightning start. The Ocean boils} all mute she stands, With pa...

THE OPIUM EATER A correspondent of an English journal contributes the following to the anecdotes already in vogue respecting Thomas de _Quincey: " In a recent leading article in your journal you have ably pointed out the grievous defect in several of our most eminent literary men , lately deceased, of the Christian element in their distinguished writings. Among those was my late beloved school-fellow, Thomas de Quincey, or, as we more familiarly called him Tom Quincey. I knew him well, both at-school and college. While I lament with you this Christian neutrality in his writings, I feel it my duty to rescue his memory from any approach to infidelity. His mother was a most excellent woman, the intimate friend of Hannah More. His sister was the first wife of the Rev. Philip Serle, son of that eminent Christian writer, Ambrose Serle. I can well remember a warm discussion with him at the college , ' on the merits of Southey and Coleridge, in _wfijch I rashly charged him with some l...

A CONNUBIAL SEEMON. A connubial little sermon, from the text, "Be happy as you are," is thus preached by a contemporary print:—" Wife and mother, are you tired &n_$ put qf patience with your husband's and your children's demands upon your time and attention ? Are you tempted to _^peak out angry feejings to _4hat laitihlfui, ' bu]ty_\porhaps, sonietimes_, heedless or exacting husband of yours? or to scold and fret at those "sweet and beautiful ones ?; Do you groan and say, 'What a fool £ was to marry, and Jeaye my father's house, where I lived at ease and in quiet?' Are you, by reason of the care and weariness of body which wife-hood and neighborhood must bring, forgetful of and unmindful for their comforts and their joys? Oh! wife and mother, what if a stroke should smite your husband and lay him low ? What if your children should be snatched from your arms and from your bosom ? What if there were no true, strong- heart for you to lean upon? . What if there were no s...

_AITTICIPAT1D SEPARATION. One of the most trying anticipations with regard to- death, in the minds of many, long before the event arrives, is separation from those whom we bve. And yet there is probably nothing in human experience more remarkable than the resignation, and cheerfulness, with which some, who have had everything to make life desirable, have left all and followed Christ, when he came to lead them through the valley. The young wife and mother in her dying hours, becomes the comforter of her husband; she turns and looks at the infant who s held up to receive her farewell, and the mother alone is calm, sheds no tears, gives the farewell kiss with composure. " Thy rod " is supporting her. "Thy staff" is keeping at bay the passions and fears of the natural heart. So a widowed mother ' leaves a large family of young children, with a peace which surpasses all understanding. And the father of a dependent family, which never could, in a greater measure, need a father's p...
