THE PEARL OF tiREAT PRICE.
This world their fancied pearl may crave,
'Tis not the pearl for me ;
Twill dim its lustre in the grave,
'Twill moulder in the sea;
Btthere's a heart of price untold,
Which never can be bought with gold,
'The sinking soul 'twill save ;
Ob, that's the pearl for me.
The miser knocks at Mammon's gate,
'Tis not the gate for me;
From morning dawn, till evening late,
At his bolted door is he;
But there's a gate that leads to bliss,
And he that knocks by faith at this,
Shall ne'er be called to wait;
Oh, that's the gate for me.
Let pleasuro chant her syren song,
'Tis not the song for me;
To weeping it will turn ere long,
For this is heaven's decree ;
But there's a song the ransomed sing,
To Jesus their exalted King,
With joyful heart and tongue;
Oh, that's the song for me.
HE'S NONE THE WORSE FOR THAT.
What though the homespun suit he wears
Best suited to the sons of toil;
What though on coarsest food he fares,
And tends the loom or tills the soil ;
What though no gold-leaf gilds the tonguer
Devoted to congenial chat ?
If right prevails, and not the wrong,
The man is none the worse for that.
What though within the humble cot
No costly ornament is seen;
What though the wife possesses not
Her satin gowns of black and green;
What though the merry household band
Half-naked fly to ball and bat ?
If conscience guides the heart and hand,
The man is none the worse for that.
True worth is not a thing of dress
Of splendor, wealth, or classic lore I
Would that these trappings we loved less,
And clung to honest worth the more!
Though pride may spurn the toiling crowd,
The tattered garb, the crownless hat,
Yet God and Nature cry aloud,
The man is none the worse that !
From the American Agriculturist.
What 1armers Ought to Know.
Let us see what farmers ought to know
and do, to raise themselves to the charac
ter of professional men; and what almost
any of them might accomplish in the long
winter evenings, at a trifling cost for
books, and a little more expense of hard
thought and attention.
A farmer ought to understand the
leading principles of chemistry. The
shoes when wvet, and choking with dust
when dry. It is a vast laboratory, full
of many and strange materials, always
in action, warring, combining, changing,
perpetually; to-day receiving accessions
from the heavens, to-morrow, pouring
them into Ite wide sea, to be again sup.
plied to ether lands. The earth is all
but a living creature; and he whose busi
ness has been slanderously said to be
but " of the earth, earthly," should surely
understand the soil's nature, its elements,
its likings, and its diseases.
The farmer should understand physiel
egy. Under his care, he has the noblest
forms of creation-the ox, the horse, the
sheep. Can he spend a life among them,
and not know how the heart beats-how
the nerves thrill-where lie the muscles
what are the principles of action-and
the seats of disease-how the fatgrows
and how the bones are formed? Can he
be a breeder, who has never studied the
the peculiarities of races! Can lie be
anything but an empire, who undertakes
to feed and fatten cattle, without knowing
of what the food is composed, and what
parts of the body require this or that ele
The farmer should have a knowledge
of medicine, and of the elements of sur
gery; for though, in this respect, when
applied to human ailments, it may prove
that "a little knowledge is a dangerous
thing," yet many a fine animal is allowed
to become dog's meat, because its owner
could not distinguish betwveen a fever and
an inflammation, set a bone or bandage a
The farmer should be a botanist. The
primeval curse of mother earth was, that
she should bring forth thorns and thistles;
and many other noxious weeds besides,
have since been added to her progeny.
How great the amount of toil expended
and how serious the loss of crops, fromt
such plants as Canada thistle, burdocks,
turkey weed, and a host of others, let
those tell who have been the sufferers.
Many books have been written on such
things; many plans have been given for
eradicating them; but unless the farmer
can distinguish them-unless he knows
their character, histories, and modes of
growth, how unaided does he go to his
task ! Besides, botany, in all its shapes,
is the natural science of the countryman.
How does the seed germinatei How
does the tender leaf unfold Itself? How
is the blossom impregnated and the fruit
formed!i What will injure, what improve
each plant? All these are questions
which every farmer should have studied
and ascertained. And can any one be
content to spend a life in ignorance of
:the names and characters of the trees
.and flowers that are so gorgeously spread
4reand him, painting his fields and woods
with their thousand hues, and rendering
this outward world a mass of beautyi
The farmer should be-or shall we say,
aieuld ish to be-a naturalist. No one
has- so :many opportunities of observing
and noting the habits and peculiarities of
anknals, birds, and insects. In some en
as this knowledge may be of inneimna
ble service. It must always be a pursuit
of pleasure, and cannot fail to refine and
improve the mind and sen-ibiiies, l:th
towards the inferior creation, and to
But time would fail to tell of what the
farmer ought to know and understand
There is no knowledge which would not
be serviceable to him. There is none
which will not elevate him in the scale of
intellectual beings: and, what, perhaps,
is more important to many, there is
scarcely a physical science which he will
not find putting money into his pocket
constantly. How many times in a life
would a barometer save a whole harvest;
how many blacksmith's and carpenter's
bills may be escaped by the humble
knowledge of the use of tools. Now, if
our farmers would become self-instructors
and, instead of doing just as their grand.
fathers did before them, they would think
and learn for themselves. No profession
would become more honorable, carry
more weight in society, nor be more ar
dently sought after by the active and in
telligent of all classes. Instead of our
young men rushing from the country to
the city, the 'city youths would yearn to
be farmers; and instead of the chief em
ulation being who should save most, the
strife would be who should accumulate
the most by the profoundest experiments,
most successfully carried into practice.
By these means, farming would cease to
be the mere drudgery of " dirty-handed
industry;" and every operation would be
come scientific, based on great princi
ples, breeding new thoughts and new
results, and ending in valuable acquisi
tions. Instead of the poet describing the
farmer as one who
" Wandered on unknowing what he sought,
And whistles as he went, for want of thought."
we should have farmers themselves dis
tinguished authors of valuable works;
scientific, at all events, if not poetic.
Some such great minds we already have
employed in farming, but unfortunately,
that is not yet the character of the class.

One Way to Fight a Duel.
A Scotch major, who had been so skil
ful with a sword, as to fight several duels
with repeated success, but who, on ac
count of his extreme desire for quarrel
ing, when a little intoxicated, and for his
boasted courage, was deserted and des
pised by his brother officers, c.me one
evening to a large company.-There hap
pened to be present a Yankee, an officer
of the same regiment which was then
stationed. He related, among other things
the failure of a certain expedition, in
which he had the misfortune to be
"That was because you were a rascally
set of cowards," observed the major.
"You are a d--d liar !" says the Yan
with as'much contempt as Goliah did up
on David, and immediately askcd, "Are
you a man to meet me i
"Yes," replied the Yankee, "at any
time, and wher-e you please, only with the
proviso that we meet without seconds."
"Well, then, to morrow morning, at 5
o'clock, at .
The company present endeavored to
dissuade the Yaukee, tellingr hitm the major
had every advantarge where he had none,
and he had better compromise matters erc
he should have cause to repent his rash
ness; but lhe still persisted.
The next morning the Yankee repaired
to the place somewhat before the appoint
ed hour, armed with a large musket.
Shortly after, the major- made his appear
anee with a brace of pistols and sword.
Before he had advanced far, the Yankee,
in an austere tone, bid him stop, or he
would blow his brains out. The major,
struck wvith amazement at this unexpected
stratagem, reluctantly obeyed, but e xpos
tulated with him on the injustice of such
ungentlemanlike proceedings. The Ytan
kee was implicable, and determined to
punish him for past conduct, and the abuse
lhe had himself received.
"Lay down your swvord and pistols!"
says he, still presenting his musket, "and,
to the right-about-face, march !"
The poor major was again under the
necessity of obeying, and uttering a volley
of curses against his star, passively sub.
mitted. The Yankee then quietly took
possession of his ar-ms.
"'Tis base, 'tis cowardly, thus to dis
arm me of all defence !" says the major.
"No," rep~lied his follow combatant, "I
will deal honorably with you; there, take
my musket (throwing it towards him,)
and defend your life!l"
He, quite incensed, seized the weapon
with a mixture of exultation and recipitate
vengeance, and rushing forward, demand
ed his arms, or ho wvould blow him to-!"~
"Blow awvay and be d--d !" says the
Provoked at such unparalleled insolence
in a fit of phrenzy lie drew the trigger.
But alas! the musket had not been
The glory of our braggadocia was so
sullied, and his feelings so mortally wound
ed by this indignity, that he sold his comn
mission and left the place.
Lovxso DIALOGUE.--" Wife, I am
shortly to leave you. The doctor tells
me that I am to live but a fewv hours at
most. I shall soon be in heaven."
" What! you soon be in heaveni Yout

so very bad that the sooner it was des
TITLES of FIRs--One of the best
titles for a mercantile firm we have seen
is "CALL & SETLE" which is painted
in golden letters on a sign in one of our
Northern cities. Customers are reminded
every time they pass of their outstanding
accounts.. "NEAL & PR AY" is tho name
of another firm. But the following" beats
all." "Two Attorneys," says an old
newspaperin " partnership, is in a town
of the United States, had the name of a
firm which was "KETCHAM & CHEATH
ux," inscribed in the usual manner upon
their office door-but as the singularity
and ominous juxta-position of the words
led to many a coarse joke from the pas
sers-by, the men of law attempted to des.
troy, in part, the effect of the old asso
ciation, by the insertion of the initials of
their Christian names, which happened to
be Isaiah and Uriab, but this made the
the affair ten times worse for the incrip
tion them ran:
"I KETCHAM & U. CHEATHAJ. !"
POLITENESS RECIPROCATED.-A crim
inal was in the county jail awaiting his
trial for murder, with a reasonable pros.
pect of conviction. The candidate for
sherifality called one day to see him,
when the prisoner, wishing to compliment
his visitor, said to him; " If I should be
condemned to be hanged, I know of no
one by whom I would rather be hung
than by you." The visitor, with one of
his blandest smiles replied;:-"And should
I be elected sheriff, I know of no one I
would rather hang than you."
SHORT AND SwEET.--Divers plans of
courtship are laid down in books, and
none takes our fancy like the following
adopted by a couple recently:
" Miss Adela, will you marry me
'- Well, Thomas, I 'spose [ must."
"I'll be much obliged toyou if you

was settled right off.

"DoEs not the bell tolling," observed
his companion to Col. -, on hearing a
funeral knell "put you in mind of your
latter end?" " No, but the rope puts me

Ma. J. E. MaasnA.,-Dear Sir : In compli
ance with your request, I make this simple state
mnent of tact.. My boy Daniel stuck a thorn in
his foot about the first of last Juno, the thorn
was extracted, and no more thought of it for 15
or 20 days, his foot then began to swell and in a
few days it was opened. It discharge a 1ar0
quantity of matter. The dishagecontinued
for eight days, and then eased.. fis sfoot then
re-commenced swelling and extended uiphis leg,
tigh, and hip, with violent pain. Ho then be
gan to spit from his lungs' matter 'simlar to.tt
discharged from the abscess on his foot. I then
called in medical aid, and from the remedies used,
he was alternately better and worse for eight er
ton weeks.1 During this time -alarge -absees
formed upon the hip, the discharge 'wairee,
and as soon as it ceased, a general swellingof his
leg, thigh and breast commenced, whlehwautery
hard to the touch, and at times experienmced much
difficulty in swallowing. Medical aid seemed of
no further avail, and was discontinued.'~ '1- then
had recourse to'your "Magical Pain Eradicator:"
In forty-eight hours, from the time I comnminced
its use, his foot began to soften ; the iwelling on
his hip and breast subsided, and I am pesdto
say be is unozte wel.
I again used your remedy in a case of Nett
ralgia, with great success, giing immediate -re
lief. I have tried it also orTooth-Ache, with
miy youngest child, with entire sueeess.
From the success I have had in the use of
your " Magical Pain Eradicator,"! Ibave no hesi
tation in reecmmending it to-the publie.
The above statements of the use of~"Mar
shall's Magical Pain Eradicator," are-known sby
me to be true. ~ - ''
