What is to be done with our Charley ?

' Everybody wants to know' what to do

eiiti'l i-tny where they are. The cook can't
httve him in the kitchen, where he infests
the pantry to get flour to make paste for
hi kites, or melt lard in the new suuce-pnn.
If he goes into the wood shed, he is sure to
pull the wood-pile down upon his head. If
he be sent up to tlie garret, you think for
a while that you have settled the problem,
till yon find what n boundless field for ac
tivity is at ouee opened, amid all the pack
ages, boxes, bags, barrels, and east-off rub

of miscellaneous contents, are all rummaged,

Then yon send Charley to school, end

Las a general impression that be is growing
immensely strong and knowing, ard despises
more thau ever the conventionalities of par

want to be quiet.
It is true, that if entertaining persons
will devote themselves exclusively to hira,
reading and telling stories, lie may be kept

pit n and write letters in peace. It is easy
to get rid of hiui; there are fifty ways of
doing that. He is a spirit that can be
promptly laid, but if not laid aright will
come btick, by-and by, a atroug wan arm
ed, when you eauuot seud biui off at plea

bcriptures reuder us familiar, a tuN-child

that should make you think mnr than twice
before you answer the question. "What
shall we do with Charley 7"
For to-day he is at your feet; to-day tou
can make him latigh, yon can make him
cry, yon ran persuade, conx, and turn him
to your pleasure; yon can make hia eyes
fill and his bosom swell with recitals of good
and noble deeds; in short, you can mould
him if you will take the trouble.
But look ahead some years, when that
little voice shall ring in deep bass tones;
when that small foot shall have a man's
weight and trump; whm a rough beard
shall cover that little, round chin, and all
the willful strength of manhood Till out that
little form. Then you would give worlds
fot the key to his heart, to be able to turn
and guide him tp your will; but if you lose
that key now he is little, you may search
for it carefully, with tears some other day,
and mrer find it. i
Old housekeepers have n proverb, that
one hour lost in the morning is never found
.all day. It has a significance iu this case.
; One thing is to I e noticed about Char
ley, that, rudo and busy and noisy as he is.
and irksome as carpet rules and parlor ways
are to him, he is still a social lit tie creatin e
ana wants to be where the rest of the
honsehold are. A room ever so well adap
ted for play, cannot charm him at the hour
when the family is in reunion;. he hears the
voices in the parlor and his play-room
seems desolate. It may be warmed by a
furnace and lighted with gns, but it i U
fjirin warmth and light he shivers for; he
yearns for the talk of the family, which he
so imperfectly comprehends, and he longs
to take his playthings down and play by
you, and is incessantly promising that of
the fifty improper things which he is liable
to do in the parlor, he will not commit one
if ton w ill let him stay there. .
This instinct of the little one is Nature's
warning plea God's admonition. 0, how
many a mother who has neglected it be
cause it was irksome to have the child a
bout, has longed at twenty-five to keep her
son by her sitle, and he would not. Shut
out as a li tie Arab; constantly told that
h is noisy, that he is awkward and meddle
some, nnd a plague in general, the boy has
found at last his own company in the
strtets, in the highways and hedges, where
he runs till the day comes when the parents
want their son, and the sisters their broth
er, aud then they are scared at the face he
brings back to them, as he comes all foul
and smutty from the compnaionsltip to
which they have doomed him. Depend
upon it, it it is too much trouble to keep
your boy in your society, there- will be pla
ces found for him warmed and lighted
witd no Inendly fires, where he who finds
some mischief still for idle hands to do,
will care for him, if you do not. You may
put out a tree and it will grow while you
sleep, but a son you cannot you must take
trouble for him, either a little now or- a
great deal by-and-by.
Let him stay with you at least some por
tion of every day; bear his noise and his
ignorant ways. Put aside your book or
work to tell him a story, or show him a
picture; devise still parlor plays for him.
for he gains nothing by being allowed to
spoil the comfort of the whole circle.
A poncil, n sheet of paper, and a few
patterns will sometimes keep him quiet by
you for an hour while you are talking,' or
in a comer he may build a block-house, an
noying nobody. . If he does uow aud then
disturb you, and it costs you more thought
and care to regulate him there.' balance
which is the greatest evil to be disturbed
by him now, or w hen he is a man.
Of nil you can give your Charier, if you
are a good man or woman, your presence is
the best and safest thing. God never
meant him to do without you any more
than chickens were meant to grow with
out being brooded.'
I lien let bun have some place in your
house where it shall I e no sin to hammer
and pound, and make all the litter his heart
desires, and his various schemes require.
Even if you can ill afford the room, weigh
well between that safe anvlura' and one
which, if denied, he may make for himself
in the street. c
Ot all devices for Charley which we
ve, a lew shelves which he may dignify
with the nnine of a cabinet, is oue of the
best. He picks up shells and pebbles and
stones, all odds and ecds. notbintr comes
amiss; and if you give him a pair of scis
sors aud a lit tle gum, there is no end of the
labels he will paste on, and the hours he
may innocently spend sorting and arrang
ing. A bottle of liquid gum is an invaluable
resource tor various purposes, uor must
you mind though he varnish his nose and
fingers and clothes, .(which he will do of
eonrse) if he doeR nothing. A cheap paint
box, ami some engravings to color, is ano
ther; and if you will give him some real
paint ami putty to paint nnd putty his
boats and curs, be is a made man.
" All these things make trouble to be
sore they do but Charley is to make
trouble, that is the nature of the institu
tion, yoo are only to choose between safe
and wholesome trouble, and the trouble
that comes at last like a whirlwind: God
bless the little fellow, and send us all grace

" Mother watch the little feet
Rounding through the busy street,
Never count the momenta lost,
Never mind the time it costs,
Nor dure the question ask,
" Why to uie Uiia weary tok 1 " " .
Motbr, mother," said an eager little
voice, "wont you tell us a story 1 A true
story, such as cousin Maggie told Billy and
me, whet) she was here." " Oh I please do
mamma," cried another lit.tle fellow, 41 tell
us about Motes in the Bulrushes, or about
Joseph, who was sold by his brothers," and
he clapped ha hands for joy, in anticipation
of the expected tale, aud in their eagerness
they pressed closely to their gaily dressed
young mother. " Go away children, "dont
trouble me, you will soil my dress." Was
there ever a mother so perplexed by her
young ones t But seeing" a shadow of dis
appointment creeping over eir young
faces', she half relented her apparent harsh
ness, gave each a kiss, and said "I cannot
gratify j(ou to-night, ome other time."
(Thot tieglcct of duty, that some other
time, that has cost us all so much remorse.)
"I am going to Miss C.'s, Lucy may teach
you, how to use your board, and men, that
papa brought you, the other day." Quietly
a sadly, the rtisnppointed little ones.who had
entered their mothers' room, hut a moment
before, flushed with hope and anticipation,
retreated iu pursuit of a hireling, who was
to take the place of that thoughtless moth
er, in whoso hands God hail placed these
young immortal minds, to be trained for
usefulness here, and fitted for eternity.
Why T did not some good angel whisper to
that mother, as she was whirling through
me gitioy uance mat, ner children were
learning lesson", that would have an influ
ence upon their whole future. They were
becoming interested in things that would
yet prove a curse to both, parents and chil
dren. Nimble little finjrers soon learned to
IL 1J J .1 . 1 ....
use those painted pieces of wood, dexter -
on!y' Those active enmiirinir minds d
.n . , i i , .
wcl asbnsy hands must have something
to uo, anu eageriy mey entered into their
new amusement furnished by father, and so
must be right. Oh I that we possessed the
implicit faith of childhood, in our heavenly
parent games of chance, in preference to
the true and beautiful tales of sacred bis-
tory, which their young minds longed to
hear explained. Who can tell if that moth
er had but prasticcd self-denial, but for one
evening, arid gratified their childish curiosi
ty, but thatshe might have impressed opori
their elastic minds noble sentiments, that
would have guided them in a different path
through life, and saved her such dreary
night watchings, and days of almost hope
less suspense. .
There wa9 no more pleading for stories,
and she who had the care of them, was
commended, because they were so quiet
and orderly, and didn't disturb mamma any
more " for something to do." That moth
er never dreaming, there would come a
time, she would give all she possessed for
this precious opportunity, of guiding their
young feet, and forming their habits aright.
In that home, where habits of industry
and usefulness should have been formed,
and their duty to themselves and others
learned, was implanted a taste , for those
exciting games, (all innocent in themselves, )
the continoed practfeoof which, has brought
so much desolation to many a happy fire
side. My brain grows weary, and my pen
falters, thiuking of the many bright hopes
crushed, and prospects Wighted by this in
satiable love of "ga.mea of hazard."
Go with me again to that once happy
home. Look at those prematurely old pa
rents, they are bowed with a grief, such as
parents only feel for wayward, erring chil

young sons, who should be as staffs and
comforters to those fond parents, in their
declining years ? how they had doated npon
them, what plans they had formed for fu
ture family aggrandizment. Left in youth
seek amusement from home, (that home
that should have been made briirht. beau
tiful and attractive,) chasing their own
associates already adepts at play, they
soon became familiar with those older, and
more hardeued in sin, who induced them
go to these accursed places of resort,
where vice is presented in its most alluring
form. The same oft told tale, playing for
amuscmeut, then persuaded to risk just a
little, then a little more, uutil all is staked
and lost. Madened, by repeated losses, tbey
drinks, for the tempter ever stands near
with the exciting glass, to take advantage
these poor deluded victims. Step by
step, they continued in their downward
course, night after night, the wretched
father sought, and found them in the low
est dens of infumy, (for their means were
too limited now,-to visit more fashionable
places,) and took them back to that moth
er, who waited in hopeless anguish; la
vain now, society sought to allure her, the
mother was roused, and bitterly she repen
ted her past folly, and neglect of duty.
Finally, the eldest, in n fit of desperation
wanting wherewith to gratify his passion
for play, jolued with hoase-breakcrs and
thieves, but being a novice he was caught,
while the older aud more hardened villains
escaped, with tbe spoils. And be now lan

Mr. Bell Released.
, Horace Bell, th kidnapped In jianian,
was released on bail, aud bis return to New
Albany was the occasion of quite a de
monstration. The Brandenburgers did not
relish the presence of tho New Albany
Ferry boat load of well-armed ani resolv
ed Albanians, and Were glad to be rid of
the stolen Bell. ;.. - i
The New Albany Tribnno of the 28th
ult., gives the particulars of the ferry boat
expedition to rescue Bull.. Arrived near
Brandenburg, sixty men were landed on
the Kentucky shore to come in back of the
town. The party on land divided into
squads, and thenitrht boinz dark nnd rainy.
all the men got lost except ' one squad of
eigniecn ana were finally - taken on board
the ferry Goat agnin, which dropped down
in front of Brandenburg. Thin caused a
general alarm, ringing of bells, Sic. The
squad of eighteen made a descent on the
town, visited the jail, and found that Bell
had been hurried iuto the country for con
cealment. The merchants and citizens bad
carried away their goods supposing that
the lndiaiiiaus, who they heard were com
ing five hundred strong, would burn the
tow ii. The squad of eighteen crossed to
the ferry beat in 6kiffs, and reported, and u
committee was appointed to coufer with the
people of Brandenburg and make a de
mand for Bell.. A town meeting was call
ed, the question of rendition discussed for
three hours, nnd fiually articles of agree
ment were adopted as follows: ,
" The iuvadiug army was to be removed;
Horace Bell was to be brought into towu
aud have an immediate examination, and
if he was not discharged his bail was to
be fixed nt a rery. small Sum, which the
citizen In the vicinity should give and
finally all the citizens In Brandenburg sho'd
sign a petition to Gov. Mot ehead to pardon
all the Bells (four) ia case of any convic
tion. This was dt;emed satisfactory, and
at 12 o'clock the army departed, leaving
three of its number, (John R., Cannon,
George Austin,- and O.seur Gregg,) to see
that the stipulations of the contract car
ried out in good faith."
The ferry bant and volunteers returned
to New Albany, Bell was brought back to
Brandenburg, let to bail as per agreement,
and the border war closed without blood
shed. The Tribune says the reword of
500 offered for Bell by the Brandeuburg
crs has not been paid, and will not be. ,

Come, boys, and listen a few moments to

age when yon must begin to think about

piece of advice I have for you is do every

but little danger of your being too particu
lar in this respect. A boy who is careful to
draw a straight liue on his slate; , Will xbe
very likely to make a straight liue through
life. There is no position in life in which
you will not be called upon to be exact as
possible. Step into a jeweller's shop nd

It is the disposition to avoid ult solid im

Experience of a Grain Speculator.
Generally speaking, wheat is a very good
grain. It shows well in tbe field and in
statistical reports; it looks well in stacks,
and especially well iu granaries; and when
well-ground, melho jicully kneaded, judi
ciously baked, and properly browned and
buttered into todst, there is no one who
will speak more respectfully, not to say en
thusiastically, of thu vegetable than I will.
For 1 am, iu the main, a nittn too well-bred
to do otherwise. But ns an article ot com
merce, a medium for speculation, I am em
phatically down ou tbe whoie institution,
both "Winter" aud "Spring;" the one has
proveu "the winter of my discontent," while
the other has "sprung" a trap ou me like
that projected over nuwary birds which nib
ble at the same bait. These remaika may
seem severe, but they drop ns naturally
from me as the kernels would from a head
of wheat that has been well threshed.
A everybody knows, I am "the sou of
poor but respectable parents." I started
iu life with this tulis.inu.uie maxim for money
making Buy when every oue is selling,
Bell when every one is buying. Some few
weeks since, wheat, which had boea very
buoyaut, suddenly felL Every one was
selling. I hud a little money, and couMding
in my golden rule, "pitched in," aud bought
at "eighty-five," 'Very soou the staple
commodity dropped to sixty-eight. Now,
thought I, is the time to get a "margin;"
so mortgaging tbe first lot, I bought oioro.
Aud I'll ventu'e to say that my old mother
never prayed so devoutly for her bread to
rise, as I did for my wheat. But still it
dropped I The fault, tbey said, was iu the
East (excuse the pun, if the pun is ob
vious) until, as it kept still dropping, 1
thought it my duty to g) to Chicago and
put a stop to it. The first greeting that
met me as I stepped into the Tremout was
a telegram on the Bulk-tin Board "wheat
is fiat." Wheat probably was flat enough,
but this announcement slrnck me as being
rather a sharp truth. At half past eleven
