The Light of a Cheerful Face.
There is no greater every day virtue thai
cheerfulness. This quality in man anion
.men is like sunshine to theday, or gentle, rt
newing moisture to theparched herbs. Th
light of a cheerful face diffuses itself, an
conmunicates the happy spirit that inspire
it. The sourest. temper utut sweeten in th
atnosphere of continuous good humor. A
well might fdg, cloud, and Yapor, hope t
cling to the sun-illuminated landscape, as th
blues and moroseness to combat jovial speec
and exhilirating laughter. Be cheerful alway.
There is no path but will be easier travelet
no load but will lift sooner in the presence c
a determined cheerfulness. It may some
times seem ditlicult for the happiest temperei
to keep the countenance of peace and con
tent ; but the difliculty will vanish, when w
truly conider that sullen gloom and passion
ate despair do nothing but multiply thorn
and thicken sorrows. Ill comes to us as provi
dentially as good, and is r.s good if we right
fully apply its lessons; who will not thei
cheerfully accept the ill and blunt its appareu
Cheerfulness ought to be the fruit of phil
osophy and Christianity. What is gained b:
peevizhness, by perverse sadness and sullen
ness! If we are ill, let us be cheered by th
trust that we shall soon be in health ; if mis
fortui.e befall us, let us be cheered by hope
ful visions of beuter fortune; if death rob u
of dear ones, let us be cheered by the though
that they are only gone before to the blissfu
bowers where we shall all meet to part u
more forever. Cultivate cheerfulness if onl:
for personal profit. It will be your console
in solitude, your passport and cominmentato
in society. You will be more sought after
more trusted aud esteemed for your stead;

The Old House Clock.
Oh, the old, old clock of the household stock
Was the brightest thing and the dearest;
Its hands, though old, had a touch of gold,
And its chime rang still the clearest
'Twas a monitor, too, though its words were few,
Yet they lived, though nations altered;
And its voice still strong, warned old and young,
When the voice of friendship faltered.
"Tick, titk," it sa'd; " quick, quick to bed,
For ten I've given the warning;
Up, up, and go, or else, you know,
You'll never rise soon in the morning."
A friendly voice was that old clock,
As it stood in the corner smiling,
And it blessed the time with a merry chime
The winter hours beguiling;
But a cross old voice was that tiresome clock
As it called at day-break boldly,
When the ,oud looked gray o'er the the misty way,
And the early air blew coldly;
"Tick, tiek," it said : " quick out of bed,
For five I've given warning;
You'll never have health, you'll never get wealth,
Unless you are up in the morning."
Still hourly the sound goes round and round
With a tone that ceases never;
While tears are shed for the bright days fled
And the old friends lost forever.
Its heart beats on, though hearts are gone
That warmer l'eat and yL unger ;
Its hands still move, though bands we love
Are clasped on earth no longer.
"Tick, tick," it said; " to the church-yard bed,
The grave hath given warning,
Up, and rise, andl look in the skies
And prepare for a heavenly morning."
Sweethcarts vs. War.
Oh! dear, its shameful, I declare,
To make the men all go,
And leave so many sweethearts here,
Without a single beau.
We like to see them brave, 'tis true,
And would not urge them stay,
But what are we poor girls to do,
When they are all away ?
We told them we could spare them there,
Before they had to go,
But bless their hearts, we wern't aware,
That we would miss them so.
We miss them all in many ways,
But truth will ever out,
The greatest thing we miss them fur,
Is seeing us about.
On Sundays, when we go to church,
We look in vain for some
To meet us, smiling on the porch,
There is no reason why we may
Not opeu heart to heart.
We trust it may not ever comie
To any warlike test;
We want to sece our Southern homes
Secured in peaceful rest.
But if the blood of those we love,
In freedom's cause must flow,
With fervent tr-sL in GJod above.
We bid them onward go.
And we will watch them as they go
And cheer them on their way,
Our arms shall be their resting Inees
W~hen wounded sore they lay.
Oh ! it' the sons of southern soil,
For freedomu's cause must die,

Than by their 'mide to lie

Spring Suggestions in Regard to Health.

Do not take oft' your winter flannel sboner
an the first of' May, but then change to a
1 t inner article of the same material. They
are wisest and healthiest who wear woolen
flannel the whole year. Arrange to have a
fire kept up in the fatnily room, however warm
it may be out of doors, until the first of May ;
and in tue morning and evening daily until
the first of June. The editor has lived in the
most malarial region in the world perhaps,

dled at sunrise and sunset irihis oflice, and
I sat by.
Disease, malignant fever, and death, reigned
in every direction, and yet lie had not a
second's sickness. It is because a brisk fire
not only creates a draight, and thus purifies
a room, but so ratifies the dUdly air that is
carried to the ceiling, where it cannot be
breathed. The simple precaution of having
a fire kindled in tle family room at sunrise
and sunset in late -spring and early fIl, is
known by eminent names in the army and
navy sui Very to be the most efficient preven
- tive of all ti'rms of fever and ague, nnd spring
and fall disease ; in flat. wet wari countries
it is almost a specific against those diseases.
Keep the body clean : spend every hour
possible in the open air, snuliig in the spring;
but by every consideration of windoin and of
I health, hare a good fire to come to sit by
with all your garments on, for eight or ten
minutes after all forms of exercise; otherwise
you will wake up next morning as stiff as a
bean-pole, and as "sore" as if you had been
pounded in a bag, to the effec't of' your exer
cise having done you more harm than good
and concluding that work don't agree with
you ; however beneficial it may be to others,
vou take no more for weeks and nionths.

put the North right, on the questions which
hive led to this quarrel. Deny it who mily,
we began this controversy. We began this
interference with State rights. We have been
for thirty 3ears the aggressors. Wo have
produced, by our own wilfulness and bigotry ;
by our exhibition of hatred and affected su
periority ; the very state of things from which
the country is now ,uffering. Let Congress
turn the tide which is now setting again.,t us
in the minds of thinking men. Let a fair
reasonable, liberal, honorable compromise be
offered at once, and let the offer be kept be
fore the South until the controversy is brought
to an end.
The Utica (New York) Obsercer says:
" Of all the wars which have disgraced the
human race, it has been reserved for our own
enllightene.l nation to be involved in the most
useless and foolish one. What advantage
can possibly accruo to any one from this war,
however prolonged it might be ? Does any
man suppose that millions of free white
Americans in the Southern States, who will
soon be arrayed against u;, can be conquered
by any eflorts which can be brought againsi
them? Brave men, fighting on their own soil
and, as they believe, for their freedom and
dearest rights, can never be subjugated. Th<
war may be prolonged until we are ourselvei
exhausted, and become an easy prey to mii
tary despotism or equally fatal anarchy: bu
we can never conquer the South. Admit i
you please, that they are rebels and traitors
they are beyond our reach. Why should wi
detroy ourselves in injuring them ?
