SprinoI 'tU tlio spell of gladness
Hut breathe tlint Eden word
Within the human bosom,
What pleasant thoughts arc stirred
Sweet thoughts of gushing fountains,
Bright skies and blossom'd trees,
And soft green grass and violets,
And wild birds' melodies.
These isioiis warm the fancy,
And wake Iho lyre of mirth
lint Spring has gifts more precious
To bless the waiting earth
Thuiu's life upon her hieczes
To fun the foiling breath
And In her hand the roeof health
To wicnthc the cheek of death.

Who all the winter drcur,

Has kept licr watch of fear
Oh, Spring may scatter buds and (towers
Tho laughing earth around '

The scenes of many of tlio instances rccoiVlcd
in tbu liihle arc extremely uncertain. Historians
and geographers place tlio garden of Eden, tho
paradise of our first parents, in different parts of
Asia ; and they do not agree upon tho site of the
tower of IJnbcl, tho mountains of Ararat, and ma
ny of the most interesting places in the Holy
Laud ; but of Sinai there is no doubt. This is
the holy mountain, and among all the stupendous
works of Nature, not a place can bo selected more
lilted for the exhibition of Almighty power. I
have stood upon the summit of the giant Etna,
mid looked over tho clouds floating beneath it ;
upon thu bold scenery of Sicily, and tho distant
mountains of Cabria ; upon the lop of Vesuvius,
nod looked down upon tlio waves of lava, and tho
mined and half recovered cities at its foot ; but
they are nothing compared with the terrific soli
tude and bleak majesty of Sinai. An observing
traveller has well called it "a perfect sea of deso
lation." Not a tree, or shrub, or blado of grass,

DQN'T 1IE A TALKER.
One half of tho mischief in tho world is douo
by talking. And ono half of tho difficulty wo
get into as we go along through life, is tho result
of our saying what wo might just as well not
have said. There's much wisdom in tho old
maxim, "keep your mouth shut, and your cars
open." There is, rely upon it.
1 do not know any body, in any situation or
profession in life, to whom tho advico is not ap
plicable. It is sometimes said that tho lawyers
live by talking that talking is their trade, and
so on ; out tlio lact is, tho lawyers oro as apt to
talk too much as any body, and to suffer as much
hy it ; to spin out a long argument, they necessa
rily fall into tho habit of dealing in fancy moro
than in facts saying things aLout parties and
witnesses that do much harm and no good and
their reputation for candor will generally dimin
ish in tho samo proportion as that for loquacity
increases. To hear somo men at tho bar, you
would suppose that if they wero bold by tho feet,
the words would run out of their mouth! by mere
force of gravity, for u week at u time, without
troubling their brains at all.
A preacher may talk ton much. Ono oftlio
best sermons over delivered in the world, was the
fccrmon on tho Mount. You may read it, as is
reported, in fifteen minutes. And though its
stylo and power is unapproachable, its brevity
might JJ1 ho oltcn nutated. f
Our politicians talk too much. It is really re
freshing to hear a sensible man talk sensibly on
this topic for fifteen minutes. JSut if ono listens
to tho strcct-rant of tho day tho wholo scienco
of politics seems to havo become twisted into a
Chinese puzzle, that nobody can find tho begin
ning or end of.
When I find a neighbor caught in tho meshes
of n slander suit, I fool more sympathy than in
diguation. Ho has probably said in a moment of
excitement, what' his cooler judgment would have
restrained what bo docs not deliberately iipprovo
himself and probably is sorry for. lint the
thing is said his pride is up, and ho has in tho
end to open his pocket for having opened bis
mouth. If he will listen to my short lesson, ho
will not bo caught in such a scrapo again. Don't
talk too much.
When I bear that a man and bis wife do not
live happily together read of an application for
a divorce am told of iigieemcnls for separation
or any thing of that kind, I am always suspi
cious that I know the cause ; that I perfectly un
derstand tho true secret of the difliculiy. Master
is occasionally pctulcnt and bully, and Madame
lectures instead of humoring bun. Lach party
stands upon martial hill of lights, until it ends in
a legal hill of divorce. There is no interfering in
such matters. Hull wish I could whisper in the
ear of every husband and every wifo too Don't
talk too much.
Some young pcoplo havo a notion that they can
talk cncii other into matrimony. It is u mistake ;
in such a delicato matter as this, the tonguo had
better bo contented with playing n subordinate
part. Tho oyo can tell u better story tho lan
guage of action will make a better impression

which congenial hearts reflect upon each other,

It may ho a singular conceit, but I'll tell you
what I like. I like to look at the quiet, contem
plative, thoughtful, old man, who sits in his arm
chair, his chin resting between bis thumb anil fin
ger, reading Scuccu thiougb n pair of spectacles.
Ho likes old fashioned ways, old friends, old
hooks. That old man makes no noise iu the
world, because he is a regular built thinker.
You give him your opinion about men and things,
and bo bears it ; tell him facts, and ho examines
and satisfies himself about them. Ask his opin
ion, and if you get it, it will como as slow nnd as
cautiously. And so it is. He goes upon the
principle that a man is not hound to speak but
if he docs speak, be is bound to say just exactly
what is right ; and until ho is sure of saying that, I
he says nothing. What a world would this
world he, if wo wero all quiet old men in specta

of tho N. Y. Com. Advertiser, gives tho following!

namely, n travelling distribution oflico for the

Perhaps as great n public convenience is now
to ho found on tho rnil-rond between Albany and

tho establishment of n travelling post office, on

for this great convenience, I am told, tho public

Two post masters, or post oflico agents, Mr
Kendall, Jr., and tho junior Mr Elliot, of Albany,
aro employed constantly between thoso cities,
and they make up n mail for every oflico on tho
route. Tho cars stop but for n moment, whilo a
messenger, who is in attendance, receives the
mail in n small hag, anil gives ono in return.
This mail car is about tho size of tho largo
