ENGLAND AND RUssA.-The Followimg
letter presents facts and suggest4 questions
worthy of profou nd reflection
To the Editors of the Union:
Take a map and look at Ruissia and you
will find thit her right flank rests on the
Baltic and Vistula, her centre on Transyl
vania, and occupies Moldavia and Walla
chia, and the mouths of the Danube. Her
left flank is extended to Bueharia and the
eastern frontier of China. The Affglan
mountains alone separate the Russiani and
English sentinels. This flank is supportedJ
by the oasis of Khiva .(250 miles long by
50 wide) and the Aral sea ; by the whole
of the Caspian sea, including the depend
ent rivers of Persia, and the right of way
through Persia towardslierat.
Let England look it) it. (and if she does
it will hardly arrest her fate,) that the
present open operations of Russia in Mill
dnvia and Wallachia, and the march into
Hungary, do not conceal a gratn.l move
Imenlt on her left flank (that a Napoleon
could conceive and exect-) that nsouldl
change E.ugland, by the waving of a mar
shal's baton, into a third rate power.
There are at least 100,0O0 Russian sot
diers, a force mobile. beyond the Caspian
sea, that can bi marched 'in tienty days to
the banks of the Indus. Letithat force
appear (n the banks of the Indus, and "the
terror of the British name" will be as a
thing lost upon enrth. All Indin, from
Ceylon to Cahul, anJ from Bombay to
Sokitn, would rise in arms, and the British
power cease to exist.
England without India would sink to
the level of Naples, with no natiou so poor
as to do her reverettee.

* The persion alluded to spent same weeks
in Pitts>norg in endeaivoring to produce tlhe
magical glass of the Druids, but diii not
succeed. The experiments have icen
continued here, and the Drnidish musical
tones, from tubes of glatss are perfect, and
make sweet harmony. But the setnsitive
glass goblets nre the most wonderful. It
was a secret of the Arch Druid to make
his glass sensitive it) poison, and iradition
says that his food and beverages were sub
mitted to a test inl those goblets, and if
they containtied poison the glass would
break. One of tihes" glisses was shown
us yesterday, in which water was forced,
and it remained as sound as any other
tumbler, but on addina a little poison, the
lns flew at once into several pieces.
This is something more mysterious than
has been exhibited yet, and we can say in
all confidence that the exitibition will be
one of remark able scient ific wonder.

AWEIGIHIN' THE GALS.
Sum body says it aint a fair .question
to ax ia gal her age. The old maids, I
reckon, sed that. Now I think it's fully
as unfair to ax a gal her weight, as it
is to ax her har age, 'case it's-a tulnques
ion, it is; and when you hears about
weighin, Sally Greeny, you will say so
'You know cousin Jeff; he's a rale
staver, 'mongst the gals, lie is, and he
don't :kare a straw what lie sez to any
on 'em, he don't.
Cusen Jel, he cum over to our house
one Suinday, and he sez to me. "Pete,
les go to see 'Squire Greeny's gals,"
'Agreed.'.sed I. And so not we struck.
I fc.it driul bold when we drst started,
but sumhow [ie nearer we got to'Squire
Greeny's the worte skceared I was. And
I wished we had never, started; but.it
was too'late now, so-in we went. 'Squire

as nice gals as you ever seed. they is.
They dI seemned mighty pe'rlite, and
me and cusen JefT thought we was gittin'

Cosen Jeff was all the time talkin'
like all natrnr' to' Betsy. After a while
Sally she proposed we should all go and

Youx. Mu.-It should be the aim
of yoting tmen to go imo good society
we mnan nnt then rich, nor the proud,
nor the fashionable, but the society of
te wise, the intelligetnt, and the good.
When y'ou find men that know more
than you do, and from whose conversas
ion you can get information, it is always
safe to be found. with them. It has
broken down manay a man to associate
with the lowv and vulgar,.w~here the rib
bald song was sung, and the indecent
story toNd to- excite laughter or influence
the bad passions-.
Lord Clarendon attributed- success
and happiness in life, to associating with
persons more learned an-l virtuous than
ourelves. if you wvisha-to b~e wise and
respected, if you desire happiness and
not misery, we advise you to associate
witv the intelligent and good. Strive
for excellence a-nd strict integrity, andi
yot will nevet he found int the sinks of
polution, or in the ranks of profligates:
ani gamblers. Once habituate yourself
1o-i virtuous course,- and no punishnrent
wttld be greater titan, by accident, to
be obliged, for half -a day to associate
wih the low and vulgar.

A WORD TO BOYS.
BE Poirxr.-Study the graces-not
the graces of the dancing master of how
ing and scraping-not the lopish, infidel
etiquette of a Chesterfiid-ut benevo
lence, the graces of the heart, whiatever
things are I, ue, honestjnsi, pore, lovely,
and of good report. The true secret of
politeness is to pliise, to make happy
flowing front goodness of heart-a funn
tin of love. As jni leave the family
circle for retircment, say good -night
when you rise,-good morning. Do you
meet or pass a friend in the street, bow
gracefuly with thn usual salritauions.
Wear a hinge on your neck-keep it
%iel oiled-and above all study Solonon
and the epistils of Paul.
BE Civi,.-When the rich Qunker
was asked the seicret of his success in
life hri answered, "Civdity, friend, ci
vility." Some people ate uncivil, sour,
sullen, morose, crahbed, crusty7 haugh
ty, really clownish and impudent. Kunr
for your life ! "Seest thou a man wise
in his own conceit ! There is more
hope (if a fool than hin."
B KIND To EVEnSYnODY.-There is
nothing like kindnees-it sweetens every
thing. A single look of love, a smile, a
'grusp of the hand, has gained more
friends than both weahth and learning.
'Charity suffereth long an-d is kind.
Sec 1 Cor. xiii.
NEVER STRIKE BAca.-That is, never
render evil 'for evil. Sone boys give
eve for eve, tooth for tooth, blow for
blow, kick for kick.-; wful! Little
boys, hark ! What says Solom',n ?
"Surely the churning of milk bringeth
forth butter, and the wringing of the
nose bringeth blood, so the forcing of
wrath bringeth forth strife." Recom
pense to no man evil for evil; bit over-.
come evil with good. '.Love youzr ene
mies, bless them that curse y ou."
In reply to a question, avoid the
monosyllables yes.and no, thus: "Is
your father .igoodh iath Q_ instead o.E
.saying, "Yl's, sir,
thank you." r
Avoid vulgar, conimon-plase or slang
phrases, such as "by jinks," "first i ate,"
"I'll bet," 4-c. Jetting is not merely
vulgar, but sinlful ; a species of gambling.
THINK REFORE You SPEA.-Think
twice, think what to speak, how to
speak, to whom to speak, and with all
to hold tip your head and look the per,
sons to whom you are speaking full in
the face with modest dignity and assu
Mince. Sone lads have a foolish, sheep
ish bashfulness, sheer off, hold down
their heads and eyes, as if they were
guilty of sheep-sicaling ! Never be
ashamed to do right.-N. Y. Star.

Gnugih'd.-We are indebted to a
friend tron the country for the follow
irig litte anecdote, showing how one of
the "Sons" recently got gonglh'd, which,
being interpreted, meaneth getting
"high," '"tight," "fuddled." It seems
that our temperance man had a "slke"
with the cholera, but fortunately re
covered. When he was getting conva

cian prescribed a little brandy-an ounce
per day-and the patient at once sent

O'n th'e folrowing atfternoon. the physi
cian paid a visit to the chiolera man,
and, to htis astonishtment, found him in
a- mo'st excellent flow of spirits--or, in
other words, quite gongk'd ! O'n in
quiring into this singular state of thiin gs,
the mediciae man exclained:' Did I
not prescribe an ounce only of brandy
per day ?"~ "Yes, sir," replied the
chiolera man ; "but then you must knowv,
doctor, I ha~d no scales to weight it in,
and remembering that eight drams~
mauke an unce, I had no scrupies in
mteasuting it out in that way. Yester

to have it flung in' his tenth. We have

a fortine, was once exhi'oiting the fine
