A pleasant smile to light the eye,
And fill tie heart with gladness,
To chase away the tears of urief,
And hush the sigh of sadness;
To lend the face a fairer charn,
A soul of love expressing,
That to earth must diviuely bring
A comfort and a blessing.
Oh! smiles have power a world of good
To Bing around as ever;
Then let us wear their golden beams,
And quench their ardor never,
For while a smile illumes the eye,
And wreathes t'.e lip of beauty,
The task of life must ever be,
- A pure and pleatant duty
THE END OF RICHES.
All mankind, with but few exceptions, are
. rushing in a race to get rieb. This seems to be
the "principal thing" in all their pursuits. Re
ligion the "wisdom that is from above" is not
suffered to entir their minds. They have no
time to attend to spiritual things-no time to
go up to church-no time to road the Bible
no time to pray. They sleep but little and eat
in a hurry, that all their time may be spent in
devotions to Mammon-" the god of this world."
Solo:fion said "He that trteth in his riches
shall fall," and he who was wiser than Solomon
said " Wo unto you that are rich! for ye have
received your consolation." You may gather
goods and hoard them, until your posse.4sion
extends beyond enumeration ; but reason,
scripture and experience all declares that " the
eye is not satisfied with seeing, or the ear filled
with hearing." This remark may be made of
every sense of the body, and of all combined
the heart is not satisfied with possessing. Pos
session obtained but increases .lesire beyond its
power to gratify. If your tru.t is in wealth
alone, you travel a rugged and br unbled way,
which leads over an awful precipice. A terri
ble fate will be yours when you are disrobed
of all, as you will be in death-when the judge
shall answer your wailing and say, " you have
received your consolation"-you have had your
day. 0, what a pang will dart through your
soul, should Abrahai say to you as he said to
Dives, " Son iemember, 'that thou in thy life
time receivedst thy good things." The memory
will endure to torment the soul.
How much of meaning, of efinement, ay, of
Christianity itself, there is in those little inci
dental attentions and politenesses which go a
great way in making up the beauty of life !
We have known very many people-good,
watm-hearted, and generous-who were capa
ble of almost any act of self-sacrifice and abne
gation, who would never have condescended to
raise their hat to a lady, or offer her a glass of
water, before drinking themselves. This is fre
quently the fault of a coarse-grained nature,
but perhaps most often the result of early edu
cation. Indeed, we always think a man's man
ner's are the "living epistle, known and read
of all men," of his rpother's training. Habitual
politeness can only make a man a thorough
gentleman-a woman a true lady. And this is
most easily acqiuired in childhood, and in one's
own household. If a boy be respectful and
courteous to his sisfers, he will be so to all wo
men, so long as he lives; but if his intercourse
with them be coarse, careless, abrupt, not sof
tened and refined by a thousand nameless little
attentions and gracese, he will be rough, awk
ward-not fulfilling always the beautiful injunc
tion of the Apostle, " Be ye courteous to all
men." Then, too, ontward refinement influences
an& softens the inward character; for it is a laen'
of our being that "expression intensifies the
emotions and feelings."
But this work,- after all, lies with every
meother in the land-in the world ; and we can
only hope that these hints may influence some
to consider it
-From the Olive Branch.
* During the reign of James-II., on the occa
sion of a trial between the crown and seven
bishops of the Church of England, one Michael
Arncld, the brewer to His Majesty's palace,
was duly sworn upon the jury.
Now, said Michael being a non-committal
man, began sorely to realize that he stood be
tween two fires, which he feared might be
e-iually dangerous to himself, and lhe gave vent
to his sorrows in these words: " Whatever I
do, I am sure to be half ruined ; for if I say
" not guilty" I shall brew no more for the king ;
and if I say U guilty," I shall brew no more for
We have just such " brewers" all over the
world in the nineteenth century-men who are
loth to consider the claims of one person or
party against another, lest, if they should de
cide according to the honest convictions which
circumstances might force upon them, they
would lose the patronage of the defeated.
Behold ! how they go about with mute lips,
and eyes that see nothing, preferring that the
most flagrant wronags should go uni-rcdressed ;
yea, willing that innocence should suffer mar
tyrdom, rather than be themselves called upon
before odt and man, to speak the whole truth
according to the dictates of conscience.
We should like to have all such fellows on
one jury, and feed them upon air for a fort
night ; and more also, we would like to hold a
loaf of bread on a pole against the shut win
dows of that Jury room, to increase their ap
We would see if they would remain uncom
mitted when the reputation or happiness of a
fellow creature wa at stake.
Out upon your silent man, who hears the
vilest alanders without contradicting them; to
whom the suffering and the weak appeal in vain
for aid or counsel; who would see the poor
man murdered by the rich muan, lest he himself
might miss some future chance of borrowing
money l Half man, half rat-he steals warily
out of his hole, picks up a few crumbs for his
own eating, and back ho goes.
What to him are social interests, the march
of intellect, or human rights ? -
He has no heart, nor hand, nor purse, nor
pen, nor voice beyond the furtherance of his
own interests. But strange it is; sometimes
. he exercises a mesmeric inifluence over men who
are mn, and, mistaken in his- true character,
they elevate him to some place of trust and
power; whereby looking wise and saying noth
ing, he gets the reputation of being a " profound
statesman," or "profound" somebody ; and so
he is, a " profound" lump of selfishness ; afraid
to say, "not guilty," lest he might " brew no
more for the king," or to say "guilty," lest he
might " brew no more for anybody else.")
"I DiDl AS THE REST DID *
This tame yielding spirit-this doing " as the
rest did,"-has ruined thousands.
A young man is invited by vicious companions
to visit the theatre, or gambling room, or other
haunts of licentiousness, lHe becomes dissipa
ted, spends his time, loses his credit, squanders
his property, and nt last sinks into an un
timely grave. What ruined him ? Simply "do
ing what the rest did."
A father has a family of sons. He is wealthy.
Other chikiren in the smne situation of life do
so and so; are indulged in this thing and that.
He indulges his own in the same way. They
guow- up idlers, trifiers, and fops. The father
wonders why his children do not succeed better.

jie left to prepare. And he goes down to de
truction, because he was so foolish as to "do as
the rest did."-Golden Rule.
A paragraph is in circulation, to the effect
that a Pru si kn court of justice has decided that
a husband has no right to open his wife's letters,
and that one was sentenced to a fine for doing
so. It is added, too, that " the rule works the
other way. also, and nuzt tend to promote fain
The rule is certainly a good one, either way,
although it has an ugly look to see it enforced
by a court of law. A neglect of mutual courte
sy and respect is the rock on which too much
"family peace" is split. The worst of all dis
courtesy is discourtesy between man and wife,
from whichever side it may proceed. Marriage
does not dissolve the obligation of respectful de
portment on either side ; and, as a general rule,
they who observe this obligation most crupulous
ly, will best maintain the delicacy of that at
tachment which marriage is too commonly sup
It is not because there should be any lack of
confidence that we say the rule is a good one.
Just the contrary is implied. If a man cannot
trust his wife, or rice versa, opening each other's
letters will hardly correct the evil. But there is
a satisfaction in first opening and reading a let
ter from a friend, the edge of which is blunted
by getting it second-hawd, after the "news is
all read out of it." It looses its virgin freshness
when the seal has been broken by another hand.
Our lady readers at least will appreciate this
feeling, and it is one that either husband or wife
ought to respect.-Expressed 'consent, or oth
er causes, may make many exceptions to the
rule laid down by the Prussian court, but as a
rule, we think it a very safe and excellent one.
OcAan) sA.uss-T Vvcmitna Lisa-.n;.-There
is as much connection between the words and
the thoughts as there is between the thoughts
and the words; the latter are not only the expres
sion of the fbriner, but they have a power to re
act upon the soul, and leave the stains of their
corruption there. A young mani who allows
himself to use one profane or vulgar word has
not only sLwn that there is a foul spot upon his
mind, but by the utterance of that word he ex
tends that spot and inflaines it till by indulgence,
it will soon pollute and ruin the whole soul. Be
careful of your words as well as your thoughts.
If you can control the tongue, that no improper
wirds are pronounced by it, you will soon be
able also to control the mind, and save that
f om corruption. You extinguish the fire by
smothering it, or by preventing bad thoughts
bursting out in language. Never utter a word
any where which -on wot.1 I be ashamed to speak
in the presence otthe most refined female, or
the most religious man. Try this practice a lit
tle while, and you will soon have command of
Turin:a.--Anger, says Dr. Bunting, has the
effect to cause the bile to rush into the stomach
in a stream. This has been observed with cer
tainty in the case of St. Martin, a portion of
whose chest was shot away, leaving an aperture
large enough to observe distinctly with the na
ke-I eye all the operations of the stomach.
When he has been suddenly enraged, while ly
ing upon a table, the bile has been seen to rush
into the stomach, which was perfectly clear of
it the instant before and in such a quantity as
to admit of its being emptied out freely into a
cup sirijy by turning him over.
~Mirthless, at and after a meal, facilitates di
getion wonderfully. Take St. Martin to a
place of amusement, for mnstance, after a hearty
meal, the result is astonishing; digestion is
pomoted to a surprisIng degree, " Laugh and
grow fat" is an adae now seon to be founded
upon a physiological truth.
Keep in good humor, says another writer. It
is not great calamities that imbitter existence ;
it is the petty vexations, the small jealousies,
the little disappointments, the minor miseries,
that make the heart heavy and the temper sour.
Don't let them. Anger is .a pure waste of
vitality. It is always foolish, and always dis
graceful, except in some very rare cases, when
it is kindled by seeing wrong done to another;
and eyem that noble rage seldom mends the
matter. Keep in good humor!i
TH E PLEAsUR Es OF IEAvEN.--Jerenny Tay
lor, speaking of the widow of a blacksmith, who
was constantly laboring to procure the necessa
ries of life, thus quaintly portrays her charac
" Thus she lived, poor, patient, and resigned.
Her heart was a passion flower, bearimg within
it the crown of thorns and the cross of Christ.
Her ideas of heaven were few and simple. She
rejected the doctrine that it was the place of
constant activity, not of repose, and believed
that when she at leng'th reached it she would
work no more ; but sit in a clean white apron
and sing psalms."
