Ilark! tlie Gospcl trump is sounding,
Calling man from sin to rise ;
O'cr the monntaiu summits bouuding,
Round tbe world its eclio flics:
Till earth's cfaorus
Sivells the rapture of the skics.
Lo ! the star of day is beaming
With a luslre strong and brigbt ;
Far its hcaliug rnys are streaming,
FiUing earth with heavenly light:
Fastdispelling naturc's night.
Now atnong earth's scattcred nations
Gospel light bcgins to shine ;
Lo! a voice ofsupplicatinn
Calls from every heathen clime,
"Come and help us,
Mcssengers of life divine."
Ilcar the sons of nature pleading,
Frm cach distant Pagan shore;
While their wounded bearls lic bleeding,
Cruslied by supcrstilion's power:
Send the Gospel;
Bid carih's children sigh no more.
See the Gospel bnnner waving
O'cr its fallen, conquered focs;
Christ a ransomed world is saving;
Vain the powers of hell opposc;
For the deserts:
Soon shall ' blossom as the rose."
Hasten, Lcrd, thine own appearing

Victory to thy pcople Learing
Make our carlh a paradise :

KEEPING CATTLE WARM
If we looU abroad atthe habits or necessities
of people we find that as we advance from
south to north the consuinption of animal
food increases. Ithas been Iong known bnth
to chcmists aud obscrving men that a cold
atmospherc requires aii cxtra quantity of
food to sustaiu life and health. And this
ol.serrancc is justas applicable to the cattle
and liorses whose hoine is at our barns, as it
is to our spccies. If they arc kept warm,
lioased from the stnrm, and sliieliled from
unnccssary cvposurc, they will uecd less
foud than'if lcft uuprotccted. The ivintcr
profu to be rcalized from milch cows is un
pucstionably niuch alTected by their trcat
mciit iu this rcspect. I copy the follow ing
r imrks from the fourth part of Johnstou's g
ricultural Lecturcs, as particularly in point.
"The dcgrce of warmth in which the an
imal is kcpt, or tlic tcmperaturc of the at
mospherc in which it lives aflec ts the quan
tity nf food which tbc animal requircs to
ca";. TI12 heat of ihc animal is inseparably
cunnecl. 1 with its respiration. The more
freqiiently itbreathes, the warmcrit becomes.
nnd the more carbon it throws ofT from its
lunss. Place a man in a cold situation, and
he will citherstarve, or hc will adopt some
mcans of warminc hiinself. Hc will
prohalily take excrcisc, and by this mcans
cause himself to lircathe quickcr. But todo
this for a lcngth of time, hc must besupplied
with more food. For uot only does hc sive
off moic carbon from his lungs, but tho cx
crcisc he takes causcsagrcatern-'tnralwaste
also of the substance of his body.
So it is with animals. The greater the
diflcrencc betwecn the temperature of th
body and that of tlie atmosphcre in ivhich
theylive. the more food they rcquircto keep
tnetn warni, and to supply the naturalwaste.
Aproperattcntiontothc warmth of his cattle
or sheep, therefore, is or great practical con
senucncc to the feeder of stock. By keep-
iugthem warm, he diiniuishes the quantity of
fooil wlucli is uecessary to sustainthem, and
leaves a largcr proportiou fortheproductiou
of bcef or mntton.
Varionscxperiment? have bcen Iatelypub
lishcd which conlirm the opinions above de-
duccd from thcoretical consideration. Of
these I shall only meution one by Mr. Chil
ders, in which twcnty sheep were foldcd in

weight, were placcd under a shed in a yard.
Both lots were fed for three months Janua
ry, Febniary and March upon turnips as
manyasthfj chose to eat, halfa pound of
nnsced caKc, and lialf a pmt ot barley
each sheep, pcr day' with a little hay and
salt. The sheep in the field consumcd the
same quantity of food, all tbe tbe barley and
oil cake, andabout 19 Ibs. of turnips perdav.

whole, 35 stone 8 Ibs. Those undertheshed
consumcd at first as much food astheotbers,
but aftcr the tliird wcek, they eat 2 lbs. less.
oronly 15 Ibs. aday. Of the oil-cake they
also eat about one-third less than the otbcr
lot, and yet they increased in weight 50
stone C lbs. or20 stone, more than the othcrs.
Thuz tbe cold and exercise in the field

food into dung, tbe othor, moro ofitinto
The abscnce of light, has also a material

ET MISS S. A. IIILL.
'Jane Sullivan is really going to be
married.' said Hannah Piersol, entering
my room one bright morning.
Ay, when is the tmportant cvent gomg
totake place, and who is to be the
'Why. asto thettme we are not certt-
fted, but John Fulsora is the gentteman.'
"Why, 1 thought Erama Ureen was his
betrothed. I hope our young lawyer is
not a coquettish gentleman.'
'Erama dismissed him ; ehe thought his
habits were not good, and that a man who
would not lay aside hisjcups and pipes, to
please a young lady, would not be Iiable
to doit togratify a wifej she therefore re
quested him to discontinue his visits.
Visely done, too ; but is lawyer Ful.

Yes, but he does sometimes dip into

good, and he Eniokcs tobacco constantlv.'
i nat is Tery disagreeable, but not so
deleterious as the otber habit. Strange
thatin thepresentage of reform, a young
man of enterprise should fall into such ex
cesscs.' 'I think Jane ought to understantl that
he is addicted to these things, for it will
be too bad for her to marry him, she is
sosensttive.it will certainly kill her, if
she finds her husband is a drunkard.'
'She will make the discovery before she
is married ; however, you might casually
drop a watchword to place her upon her
'I do not like to interfere in such an
affair. yet, certainly, Jane ought to know,
I reckon I know how to fix it.'
'How Hannah 1 you know Jane is so
plain-hearted she would be as liable to
asn him the question as any way.'
'Not quite ; but Jane, you know has
somewhat of a tinctureof enterprise and
romance in her composition ; now if I can
prevail upon her, to cnter upon my
scheme, she will find out his charactcr, by
ner own observation, without myactual
'What mad project have you in view
'Be patient, and you will find out 1 1
am afraid you could not keep the sccret,
and by getting air the whole would be
lost.' Sosaying, tbe gay laughter.loving
girl ran out of tbe room, and in a few mo
ments I saw her cnter Mrs. Sullivan's
residence, who with her only datighter.
Jane, had a fcw months before come into
our village to reside. Mrs Sulivan was
a widow ; of a numerous family, Jane
alone was sparcd to be a solace and com
fort to hcr dcclining years. One by one
her brothers andsisters had droppedinto
the grave, and she alone rcmained. Rear
ed in afiluence, her every wish a law, it
might haye been expected that she woutd
have been self-willed, but on the coutrary
it was remarked by her acquaintances,
thatnone were more mild and amiable
than Jane Sullivan ; and all valued the
acquisitionin our village circle, when the
young, gay, and wealthy heiress, entered
tbc group. Jane was peculiarly dffident
of her own abilities; but she had that love
of romance which would often carry her
into a frolic, from which she otherwise
would have instinctively shrunk. Hannah
Piersol was a gay, lively girl, of great
energy, and full confidence in her own
powers ; she kncw that she possessed the
ability to do whatcver she chose ; and
was therefore often Icd into scenes of life,
from which young ladies are generally ex
cludcd. On the cvening of the day, in which
she had called upon me, she entered our
parlor, and after a few casual rcmarks,
she inquired of a gentleman present, how
soon the Court sat in Cliflon?
'Next week, Thursday,' was the reply.
'Is it expected Lawyer Fulsom will be
' Yes, he is certainly expected to be
there ; he in counscl in a number of caus
es ; and if he should happen to be himself,
he will undoubtedly do well. I fear, how
ever, he will not resist the temptations
which will present themsel'es. He is, I
am fearful, m the road to ruin.
Hannah soon took her leave. I could
forin no conception of what plan she was
I forming ; I was certain, however, there
was something m view, connected with
the Clifton Court.
NextTuesday morning. the stage coach
drove up to Mrs- Sullivan's door, and two
rcspectable ageu women entered the m
side, while their baggage was disposited
on the rack. Supposing them to be some
company of thefamily, 1 thought no more
of it, till I understood by some passing
friends, that casually dropped in, that
neither Hannah Piersol, or Jane Sallivan
could be fonnd, they had gone ofFon an
excursion somewherc no one knew
whcther. The thought flashed on my
mind in a moment, that thej were gone to
Clifton. I could hardly restrain my im
patience to learn the result. Five days
passed when the wheels of the stage a
gain rattled along the strcet, and stop
ped again at the dwelling house of Mrs.
Sullvans; the same old ladies alighted,
one of them hobbled on a cane towards
the house, while the other adjusted the
spectacles to count out the money to pay
their fare. Surely these could not be the
frirls; in a few moments. however, I heard
the merry Iaogh of Hannah, ringing forth
from the house, and impatientto learn
the result, donned my bonnet and shawl,
and sped over to hear the rcport. When
I entered the parlor, two old ladies arose
to greet me, attircd in rather coarse, but
perfectly tidy apparel, with their neat
! muslin caps tied under their chins by a
j broad black ribbon, which passed over
the top, while their iron-rimmed spec
tacles were confined on the outside by a

Misses Jones,' said Mrs. Sullivan, while
I returned their 'how d'ye do's,' with all
courtesy and taking the profFered seat be
gan to inquire about their journey, when
from one of the poor infirm old ladies. I
heard thc lively laugh of Hannah Piersol,
wnue Jane bulhvan s voice commz trom
the other showed at once who the Misses
Jones were. 'Ah, Kate, you may well be
deceivcd,' said Jane, 'for no one has
known us since wc left home, and you
know that a great many of our villagers
went over to court at the same time we
started.' 'And you have really been to
Clifton V 'Keally, and surely,' said Han
nah ; 'but Jane, we must change our dress,
or the secret will get out. Kate, you
must give us the right hand of fellowship,
and not for the life ofyou, say a word a
bout the Misses Jones, and when we come
down we will tell you the whole story ;
AVhen the girls were gone, Mrs. Sulli-
, van said, 'those are sad girls, Kate, but
, they are so full of frolic that they must

I they would be found out ; but did they

JJane Iimped off, and complained of her

'Now for the adventures ofthe old la
dies;' 'Well, Hannah must be the narrator,
for she did all the talking ; I could not say
a word, all I did was to take snuff, and
have the rheumatism,' said Jane.
'To begin, then, we understood that
Mr. Fulsom was not to go till Thursday
I morning ; so we started, as we supposed,
in season to get there, and be lociated
I before he should arrive, butjudge of our
surpnse, when we tonnd ourselves seated
cxactly opposite him in the coach. I cer
tainly expected to be detected, but poor
Jane got the veil over her face, and I sop
pose went to slcep, for she did not spcak
only once till we gotto Clifton; but left
me to do all the talking ; and I never
kncw Fulsom to be more sociable. He
inquired very particularly about all the
whys and wherefores of our visit to Mrs.
Sullivan, and then began torefer to Miss
Jane. He thought her a very fitie young
lady, I said she was a very good gal,
he esteemcd her as very amiable and in
telligent, I liked her for being good-na-turcd,
he wondered whether she was
goingto be married, I guessed not,
did she have many calls from the gentle
man? Why there wasa Mr. Fulsom, a
young lawyer, I said, that called there a
numbcr of limes, and I reckoned that
Jane liked him well enough, and I guess
he liked'her, but it was all over with.now.
Why sosaid he. Why.Jtherecame in one
morning, a "ratlle-headed girl, that they
called Hannah, and she told Jane a
lockram story about John Fulsom's being
intcmperate, and how he smoked all the
time ; and that sometimes he got so bad
in consequence of drinking, that he could
not attend to his business, and folks were
afraid thathe would disgrace himself ifhe
went over to court at Clifton.
'lhat did Jane say to it?' said he, and
his face was as crimson as a red rose.
'Why, she looked sober, and said she was
very sorry for Mr. Fulsom was a fine
young man, but he might now give up all
thoughts of marrying hcr, for she would
never marry a man that used strong
spirits, and as to smoking that was next
to it, and she almost cried when she re
pcated it I will never wed John Fulsom
and then Hannah told her that perhaps
he would leave itoff: she had bettcr lalk
with him about it, and she thought she
would spcak about it to him, but she
would never think of him again only as an
acquaintancc.' Well, he looked quite
sober, and did not seera to want to talk
any more, and when he called to the ho
tel where they changed horses, he would
notgo into the bar-room, but stood on the
piazza ; and when he mct an acquaintance
who invited him togo in and take a glass
of wine, he refused. 'What is the mat
ter. John V said he, 'why, I never knew
you to refuse a glass of spirits before.' 'I
am almost a temperance man,' said Ful
som. 'What has turncd your mind so
suddenly ?' 'I should think it was time
for a young man to begin to alter his
course when one young lady turns him
offbecause heis intcmperate, and anothcr J
isjustgoing touismiss mm tor tne same
reason ' You see now, Mr. Sullivan.that
our plan of employing him as a counsel,
would not do, and as it would be of no use
for us to call at Clifton, we went on as far
as tho Springs, and then returned by the
next stage, and if we have not had a novel
time, I am mistaken. It was, I am sure,
romantic cnough for Jane.'
'Well done, Miss Hannah,' cxclaimcd
Mrs Sullivan, 'you are quite a heroine.'
'But mother,' said Jane, 'if you could
only have heard Hannah's voice tremble,
andsecn how she took snuff while talking
with Mr. Fulsom, you would have laugh
ed outright, I am certain I had to try
hard to keep sober and grave.'
'Poor Fulsom.' said Hannah, 't fear I
have got his lasting vengeance fixed upon
me. But I am used to thestorm ? it will
blow over, I think, but surely, there is
Mr. Fulsom coraing in. Now girls
Jane act as ever, and don't for raercy's
sake say a .word about going away. If he
knows the old ladies have come back, you
know that they have lain down to rcst.

calling a public mceting to consider such a
proposition? And yet we have a call (not in
dced sicned by ami body!) askinethc people
of this County to asscniblc together for the
express purpose of authonzing th! absurdity
ofa "well-rcculatcd and judicious" system of
opening establisbments to tcmpt mcn, uot on
ly to turow away their money for that which
will not profit thom, but to indulze in the use,
as a btttrage, of liquors that intoxicate that
tend to impair health, corrupt morals, break
the neace, make families wretched, incite to
the commission of crimo,waste estates,make
paupers, and plunge men into utter and hope-
lessruin. tiowgrcatly uocs tne danger ol
grantmg sueh licenses excecd that of li
censing thesale of "discascd, corruptcd,or un
wholesome provisions." Thc cfTects of the
consumption of such provisions would, gen
erally, very soon admonish thc consumers to
purchasc no more, and would cvcn dnve the
community, for all thc purposes of trade, from
every establishment where they sbould have
been sold. And especially if nature, recoiling
at thctouch ofsurhimpurc substanccs.should
east them from the nauscatedstomach, would
mcnbe admonishcd of the dangcr, and take
hecd againstrenewedcxposureto tbem. But
notso with thc intoiicatine beveraee. Every

Yea, thc very sight and smell ofthe poisonous

wholesomc "meat or drink" would often
warn and deter from their use, docs, in this
case. directly and powerfully tempt to a fur
