The Wishing Cap.
BY CHARLES UACKAT.
If fairy talcs were true,
And fortunes were ruy hap,
I'll tell you what I'd do
If I'd tho wishing cap;
I'd m-ike each maid a wife,
Who'd give both heirt and hand ;
.And all domestic strife
I'd banish from the land.
No arm that wrought or plough'd
Should ever toil in rain :
The groat shouid not be proud,
The small should not complain ;
Tho friendship of a I'cieud
Should but through good and ill :
And, constant to the end,
Should guide tho wand'rer still.
All ruler? should be just,
And people ?hould bc wise,
And swords und spears should rust
For Lick of onemies ;
Thu triumphs of our time
Should bless the poorest lot,
And rciscry and crime
Should die and be fr g ot.
Cowardly Swearing. .
There are bold blasphemers all round
u*. W'e hear their oaths and impreca
tions as we walk the streets and drive
ulong thc highway. Even little children
swear like, pirates. Sometimes the very
air seems close, hot and stifling ns if filled
with exhalations from the pit, and we
tremble lest God should send sudden and
awful judgment upon those who so reck
lessly take his name in vain. Profanity
is so foolish as well as wicked, that it ha-,
well bren said, ''The swearer needs no
bait-the de ?I gets him to bite the naked
book." Sume vices we cati almost ex
cuse, because ?if the strength of the temp?
talion by which the perpetrator is assailed,
but th? profane man has no excuse. His
vile lia bit gratifies not an appetite or lust.
lt is practiced from pure love of evil, it
.?.hows a dark and malignant hatred of
God, and has only one redeeming feature,
viz: its boldness. The open blasp erne:
defies Jehovah to his face, ile dares thc
omnipotent One to damn him.
Dut there is a kind ol' swearing that is
justas wicked as .this, and a great deal
meaner. It is that of those who use the
carrent Lilliputian oaths. Who, not bold
enough to say '; damn," soften it to " dam,"
and seem to think that, God will give them
great credit for their politeness. We
eannot pollute our columns with a list of
these common expressions which are em
ployed by those, who are wicked enough
but too cowardly to swear "right out."
Nor is it necessary, for our readers are
pecularly fortunate in their neighbors \t'
they are not hearing them every day.
What we wish to call attention to is this
-that all these little oaths arc only thc
great ones slightly changed-they mean
the same thing-they are just as profane
and blasphemous, and thc only difference
is that while Satan has made those for
bold sinners he has made these for timid
and cowardly ones.
We have been told that some profes
sors of religion are in the habit of using
these sugar-coated poisons, these blasphe
mies and imprecations with the rough
edges trimmed off. If so, they have,
probably, never considered the true na
ture of such expressions. Wc hope that
thev will not be guilty any lon<-er of con
duct so cowaidly and disgraceful ; but
either begin to swear outright, so that
everybody can soe to whose party they
belong, and the church can excommuni
cate, them, or quit swearing altogether.
A man who is telling the truth, and is
not in a passion about it. has no tempta
tion to swear. Unless he has formed a
habit of using profane language, he will
never think of it. A plain and straight
forward statement will satisfy him, how
ever important the matter, or how great
his interest in it. But as the Christian
has no right even to tell a lie, or to get
into a passion, he has no more business
to swear, even in the Lilliputian and cow
ardly way, than an angel has. And if
any of our readers have fallen into the
habit, we ask them to sit down and think
how their pretty profanities would sound
in heaven, and what :he angels would
think of them, if uttered in their pres
ence. We ought not fo indulge in any
habit that we know would be out of place
in our future home, for this life is ?liven
to ns as a time of preparation for the life
They Preach One Thing and Practice
The Enterprise (Miss.,) Star tells the
following good story of a minister well
known among the Methodists on Pearl
River, but who has moved to Alabama:
" A friend has just stepped in who gives
us ihe following as a practical test of the
sincerity of the newly converted Radicals.
We recommend its general adoption by
those of our colored people whose votes
and influence the Radicals arc endeavor
ing to obtain by a regular system of
equality hood-winking :
Rev. Mr. Talley, of the Montgomery
Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
Church South, who is a " weak vessel,"
has been bought up by the emissaries
of the Northern Methodist Church. In
the ignorant zeal of a new convert, who
of course wished to render some service
for his money, he went into the Summer
field District, over which Dr. A H.
Mitchell presides, and began the propaga
tion of the perfect equality doctrine
f.mong the colored people. This equality
he carried Beyond, and as the legitimate
result was lionized by thc negroes.
An old gentleman of the white persua
sion, residing in the neighborhood where
this missionary of equality was laboring,
saw proper to doubt Mr. Talley's sinceri
ty, and tc.'d a favorite boy-an old time
house and body servant, who had imbibed
great confidence in Mr. Talley as a sin
cere equality man-that he had as well
keep his money, if he intended to give
Mr. Talley any, until he could test his
sincerity. A new idea struck Jack. Mr.
Talley was to stay all night at Jack's
master's. When he retired to bcd Jack
accompanied the reverend tu rn coat to
his room and held him in long conversa
tion on thc equality doctrine, until Mr.
Talley, was fully committed toit, and
thoroughly sleepy, he look off his coat
ready for bed; so did Jack. Boots came
next ; so did Jack's. Talley's panis off*
Jack's ditto. " Look here .lack, what are
von up to ?" quoth Mr. Talley.
u Nuffiu 'tall sir. Des going to be
'down to' somefin, dat'sall," replied Jack.
.; What's that you are going lo be
Mown to,' " said his reverence.
.. Well, I'se goin to bcd with you, dat's
ul 1 dere is about it I is jes as good as
you is, accord in to the Lord's gospel by
vou, and I am tired of sleeping wid mi
gelf in de shuck pen. So I is going to
sleep wid yod in master's bed," said
Mr. Talley took a deliberate, indignant
Harvey of Jack from head to foot, slowly
Lut ?n his clothes, went to the stable,
bridled and saddled his horse, and left
that bill a .sadder and a wiser mas."
How a Circus was Broke lip?
We have laughed heartily over the
following ludicrous; story, and would not
deprive our readers of the same, enjoy
A number of years ago when Michigan
was a new country, in Livingston county,
there lived a family by the name of Clay
ton, and one called Perkins also,-as well
as a great many others.
Pete Clayton w.is -a tall, fine looking
fellow-a noble specimen* of our back
woodsmen-standing six feet two inches
in his stockings.
Pete had taken a shine to Mis? Sally
Perkins, and it was known in fact that
they were engaged, but the day when the
knot was to be tied had never yet been
In the month of August, 1849, June's
circus came through their town for the
first time, and in fact it was the first
circus that had ever passed that way, and
there were a great many people who had
never seen one. When the important
day arrived, Che town was filled to over
flow with a motley crowd, of course, and
every young fellow had his gal. Now
Pete wanted to get married on the com
ing Christmas, but Sai ly wished to have
it put off ti il the next spring. When the
ticket wagon was opened the tent was
tilled in a hurry. Pete and Sally had
been looking in the side shows and they
were late in getting in and the perform
ance had already commenced. They
walked around the entire ring, trying to
find a seat, and although they could seat
two thousand people, every seat was full.
"Nevermind," said Sal, 'Td justas
Heve stand up."
But the gallant Pete couldn't think of
it and said, " Wait a min't, I'll get you a
chair," and ofF he started leaving Sal
Just at this moment the clown came in
dressed ?ti his usual costume, and dancing
around the ring, stopped in front of Sal
and began to sing :
" Oh Sally is tho gul for mo."
This caused Sal to blush, for she thought
that the clown was looking at her. As
she stood near the ring, of course she hid
tho view of those on the lower seats be
hind her, and as usual on such occasions,
the clown cracked his jokes at the offend
ers until they take the hint and find a
seat, but she said she would rather stand
up. At this the clown commenced his
jokes, remarking to the ring master :
"There's a chance for me now."
t; A chance for you ?"
" Yes ; don't von see that gal has lost
her beau, and she is looking at me, I
know," and turning three 'or four somer
saults, he stopped in front of Sal, and
began to sing :
" Oh Sally is the gal for mo,
I would have no other,
And if Sal died to-morrow night,
I'd marry Sally's mother."
This was evidently meant for her and
raised Sal's dander, and she burst out
" I'm thc gal for you, am I ? Marry
my mother, will yer? You low-lived
spotted scum of the earth. If my fellow
was here he would wallop you for that.
I wouldn't stay here another mink-nor
neither would any decent people either."
Saying which she rushed out of the tent
amid roars of laughter.
The clown, assuming a comical attitude,
remarked to the ring master that his
grandfather was a remarkable man, and
so was his grandmother, too, but that gal
beat all his forefathers.
At this juncture Pete rushed in closely
followed by Sal, and jumping into the
ring, he squared ofT at the clown, and
"I'll teach you to insult any female
under my charge," and let fly at his op
ponent, aud taking him plump in the face,
sent him to mother earth, at which he
jumped on him and commenced kicking
him unmercifully, Sal standing on the
outside of the ring clapping her hands,
and sang out :
11 That's it, Pete, give him jessie, and
we'll git married on Christmas, sure."
At this moment the ring master and
three or four others caught Pete and
commenced to thrash him when Pete's
friends interfered, and a general fight en
sued, which completely broke up the
Nothing has Happened.
We have a friend in this city, says the
Lancaster (Pa.) Expr ess,- who is very fond
of telling a joke. He has quite a num
ber of real good ones, none of which
we believe have ever appeared in print.
W? give one of them below, and if it
" takes" well, we may furnish others.
The story runs :
Some years ago, a farmer, living in a
village bordering on Berks county, fur
nished one of his throe sons with a sum
of money and told him to go West and
remain two years, at ;he end of which
time he should return to Lancaster, stop
at Schofield's, and one of them would be
there to meet him. The young man
started on his travels, and at the end of
the specified time he returned. It should
be premised that telegraphs were not
then in existence!, the postal system was
not so perfect as it is to-day, and literary
attainments were not so general, hence no
communication took place between the
parties. He returned, however, as we
said. His brother was there to meet
him, and they both proceeded homeward
in a buggy. The wanderer, after rel ting
some of his adventures, inquired whether
anything had happened since he left
"No, not a single thing," said the
other ; " everything is just the same as
when you left-except that the old crow
" Indeed," said the wanderer, " and is
thc old crow dead? What killed him?"
" Why, he atc too much meat when
the matched horses died."
"Good gracious! are the matched
horses dead-what killed them ?"
" Well, you see when thc house and
barn burned they overdid themselves in
" Good gracious ! are the house and
barn burned down-how did it happen?"
" Well, you see when daddy died, they
were carrying lights about and were cire
" Good gracious ! and is daddy dead
what was the matter with him?"
" Well, you see when our Sal ran
away and got married against daddy's
wishes, he just pined away and died "
" Good gracious ? so nothing has hap
pened since I've been away ?
" No, everything is just the same?"

General Lee on School Discipline.
A report on school discipline, submitted
to thc Educational Convention in Rich
mond, Va., was prepared by General
Robert E. Lee. He gives his idea of
what teachers should be, as follows:
The selection of proper persons for the
office of teacher is a matter of the first
importance, and as its duties require long
and comprehensive preparation, it should
be regarded as among the most honora
ble and important professions, and be
committed to those whose beneficial in
fluence and instruction shall embrace
morals and religion, as well as the intel
lect. The teacher should be the example
of the pupil. He should aim at the
highest attainable proficiency, and not at
a pleasing mediocrity. Unless he can
teach those committed to his care to
think and to work, and can impart to
them vigor with learning, there can bc
no real advance. He must study the
character and disposition of his pupil*,
and adapt his course of discipline to their
peculiarities. Above all, he must be uni
form, consistent, firm, kind in his conduct,
teach more by acts than words, and show
the children under his charge that he has
their true interest at heart. 'He should
look upon them not only as the parents
of a new generation, but also as heirs of
immortality, and while preparing them
for usefulness in this life, instil into their
impressible minds principles of piety and
religion; for if it be true, as taught by
history, that greatness depends upon vir
tue it is equally true that religion is the
fountain and support of virtue.
Should the daily business of the school
be conducted on such principles, and the
pupils bc trained in the habits of obedi
ence, reverence and truthfulness, and be
convinced that they are noble and lovely
in themselves, and their practice manly
and honorable, thc main object of educa
tion will have been attained.
in addition to those moral influences, a
teacher should be clothed with all tho au
thority of thc parent in the discharge of
his duties, and be sustained by him so
long as he may entrust his child to his
care. That he may be kept constantly
informed of the conduct of his child ;
weekly, quarterly and yearly reports of
his progress should be sent him by the
teacher, in which should be stated ab
sences, late Altendance and misbehaviour.
Certificates of advancement should like
wise be given to those who excel in stu
dies and conduct. The system of pun
ishment ought, to be as simple and mild
as they can be made effective, and when
coercion has to be resorted to, it should
be generally left to the parent. Should
admonition, restriction ot recreation, &c,
fail to produce the desired effect, and the
pupil obstinately resists the patient ex
postulation of the teacher, there will then
be no other resource than to icturn him
to bis parents as one unworthy a place in
A Good Illustration.
Our Copperhead contemporary, the
Trenton American, propounds the follow
" Question to be debated at the next
meeting of* the exclusives of the Loyal
League : " Can a man dying in thc Demo
cratic faith, with all the prerequisites of
a Christian, go to heaven?" There are a
very large number of people who don't
believe he can. The debate will be an
animated one, although, like the handle of
a jug, all on one side. Who will take
Why, we will, and sustain it by rela
ting a Boston story, which is precisely in
point. Many years since there lived in
the not over-classic neighborhood of Dock
Square, on old fellow who was called by
the boys Gen. H-. Ile kept a "gin
mill" and "prop shop," and was, alto
gether, what >s known as a hard case
One morning ne addressed the crowd of
loungers thus :
"Boys, 1 had a queer dream Inst nigh*
-a most 'stornary dream-fact."
" Well, General, what was it? What
did you dream ?"
" Wall, boys, I dreamed I died."
"No! did you? Well," said all the
Crowd in a breath, " where did you go
" Went to Heaven."
" Oh, come, now, General, that is a lit
tle too mirch, you know-couldn't be,
" Fact, boys, for all that-I went to
" But how did you get ir., General ?"
" Well, that's the queer part on it, and
I'll tell you how. You 6ee, when I got
over there, I made my way up to a gate,
and knocked and asked what place that
was, and somebody looked over the wall
and asked me what I wanted, and I said ?
wanted to come inside. Then he said he
was St. Peter, and that was the gate of
Heaven, and 1 told him that was just
where I wanted to get to. He asked mc
some questions, and was just goin' to let
me in, when, just my tarnal luck, along
come the devil, and he hollered out to
Peter that 1 belonged to him, and hadn't
any business inside. Of course I couldn't
say nothing, but 1 felt awful scary. Well,
right away, Peter he come outside, and
says he: "Satan, what claim have you
got on that soul ?" " Why," says the
devil, u he is my man ; he's been selling
rum and shaking props down in Boston
more than twenty years.. " I admit that,"
says Peter, "but didirt he always sell
good liquor?" "Well, yes, I'm bound
to admit he did," said Satan. " Did he
ever cheat'at prop shaking ?" " Not that
I can prove." " Well, then," says the
saint, " you can't have him on that." I
begun to feel better, boys, when the devil
says he, " But this fellow sold rum on
Sundays." Peter looked sharp at me,
and asked me if tliat was so. I daren't
lie, so I said, " Yes, but I'always paid the
largest subscription of any man in the
parish to the minister's salar) !" " Well"
says Peter to Satan, " that alters the case
again, you see." With that the devil got
a little riled, and says he : " 1 can't bother
here all day about him-suppose we raffle
for him." "Agreed," says Peter, and
tiley threw me down and sot on me, and
Satan got the first throw, and he threw
three sixes ! Oh. didn't I feel myself a
goner when I felt him wriggle his tail;
for he thought, and I knew, that three
sixes couldn't be beat, and says he : " Pe
ter, Tve got him." "Hold on," says he,
" I haven't had my throw yet." And he
took the box, and shook and shook, al
though ? couldn't see the use on it, and as
I'm a livin' sinner yet he threw two sixes
and a seven/ The devil jumped up quick,
and putting off, says he: "Peter, it ain't
no sort of use-if you are going to come
them miricleson me. you can have him !"
So you sec boys, I did get-in, but it took
a miracle to do it !"
STORY WITH A MORAL.-When General
Jackson was moving on to strike McClel
lan's flank on the Chickahominy, he came
to a stream which had no bridge, and
cjuld not be crossed without one. The
General had brought with hiro from the
valley, ? rough, uneducated mau, full of I
energy, who had served him in emergen
cies, and in whom he had the utmost con
fidence. He called this man, told him
that stream must be bridged immediate
ly ; the regular engineers were also ad
vised of the fact. In a short time thc
rough carpenter and ti e polished men of j
science were at tho stream ; the former
had his plan, the latter theirs ; he wished
to go at the work at once without draw
ings, but they objected until they could
perfect the plans on paper. The engineers
retired to their tent lo perfect a paper
bridge ; the carpenter took his men and
went to work at once to make a real one.
In a very short time he appeared at the
General's tent, and reported briefly thus:
" General, that bridge is done,' but them
pictures ain't come yet." This story has
a moral that nil our readers can discover.
A FACETIOUS KEB.-At Johnson's Is
land it was no unfrequent sight to see
spectators regaling their eyes on the rare
man-show afforded by a view of the pen.
Few of them left with any favorable im
pression of the politeness of the prisoners,
for all the camp phrases of disrespectful
salution were re-coined for their benefit.
On one occasion, the Mayor of San
dusky was on the fence complacently sur
veying the pleasant spectacle, and think
ing, doubtless, how much better off we
were than the Yankee prisoners at thc
South, when he received more than one
invitation to " come out of that hat," and
other earnest solicitations from the crowd.
He was somewhat displeased, when, for
his consolation, some fellow shouted,
"Say, Mister, don't mind them boys,
they're always hollerin' at some d-n
fool or other." His Honor departed.
-? -?_ ?
THE PARSON AND THE WASPS.-A cor
respondent from New Hampshire says
Hon. Daniel Webster had an anecdote of
old father Searl, the minister of his boy
hood, which has never been in-print,
which is too good to bc lost. It was cus
tomary then to wear buck-skin breeches
in cool weather. One Sunday morning,
in thc Autumn, Father Scarl brought his
breeches down from the garret ; but thc
wasps had taken possession of them du
ring thc summer, and where having a
nice time of it in them. By lint of effort,
he got out the intruders and dressed for
meeting. But while reading the Scrip
tures to the congregation, he felt a dagger
from one of the enraged small waisted
fellows; and jumped about the pulpit,
slapping his thighs. But. the more he
slapped around and danced, the more
they stung. Thc people thought him
crazy, and were in commotion what to
do ; but he explained the matter by say
ing: "Brethren, don't be alarmed. Thc
word of the Lord is my mouth, but the
Devil is in my breeches!"
A REGISTRATION SCENE.-Acorrespond
ent relates the following:
Register-"What is your name?"
"Samuel, Samuel what?"
"What you mean, sar? My name's
" Yes, I know, but what is your other
" My udder name ? (and he studied for
a moment, then answered in a very un
certain manner.) My udder name's Jones,
. " Well. Mr. Jones, how long have you
resided here "
" Well, ?bout, forty years.
" Arc you certain that you have lived
here forty years."
"Yes sar, I live here forty years, sure,
kase I, I know, 'fore dc Lord, I live here
u Well, Mr. Jones, how old are you?"
" I'se thirty four years old."
That darkey came down justified, reg
istered as a voter for thc election of dele
gates to a convention to form a republi
can constitution for our State.
