Keep Troubles to Yourself.
Speak not troubles ovsr loud,
Lest the world fbould bear ;
Baw rut your hoad b-firc thc crowd,
In public shed no tear.
Strangers form a heartless sect,
Too apt to worship pelf;
Sc, if you wish to gain respect,
Keep troubles to yourself.
The wi;e will never own defeat,
Though hope be almost dead ;
But, smiling, all disa.-ters meet,
With proud defiant kcad ;
Even wiib a ready je<t,
In darkest time of woe,
Striving, struggling for the best,
Midst tours that none shall know.
Th? fool who tells of his distress, .
Hurries on disaster,
And tempts thc sordid one to press
Uis owing claims tho faster ;>
. Till down beneath he slowly goes,
Meaning still the sadder,
Beet by coward, heartless blows,
To fell him from the ladder.
Be ever cheerful ti tho crowd, ,
And bide no croakers near you;
Be courteous, yet cold and proud,
And fools will learn to fear you ;
Thus, manfully, ever lay
Your Joubting on the sholf,
Vnd ever from thc light of day,
Keep troubles to yourself.
A Love Story.
MATTER OF FACT WITHOUT SENSATION.
About twenty miles from New York
lives n rich man who has a fine estate,
and an interesting family, .of which the
oldest is a beautiful young lady, her
lather's pride and hope. Last year, while
his elegant mansion was building, a voung
carpenter who had just finished his trade,
and whose sole property consisted in a
pair of large hand , a stout, good heart.
a:id habits of industry and soberness,'
came to work on thc promises. Very
naturally the young knight of the broad
axe soon fell in love with the youngjady ;
and not strange h s y the young lady
was equally well p?case? with him. She
sitent considerable time every day in
watching the progress of the work, par
ticularly that performed by the young
mechanic, and he found his greatest in
centive and joy in working under the
watch of her loving eyes.
The secret, however: soon became an
open one. imd finally was bro! en to the
?yoting lady's fainer, lie heard the sad
news without apparent concern, but in a
few minutes set off fur the village where
he made dilligent inquiry respecting the
young carpenter, who, lie learned, wa*
thc only son and support of a poor widow,
but was unintelligent; capable, promising
young man. Thc father returned home,
and calling his daughter*ip his room,
asked her how the matter stood between
herself and thc young carpenter. It was
a critical moment to her, and fora mo
ment her fears triumphed over all other
feelings, and she burst into tears. The
tears ?vere followed by a confession of an
attachment which had grown stronger
every day, even with the fear that it was
doomed toa cruel disappointment; for
the object of it was nothing but a poor
mechanic. ".But I love him with all my
might, and would give my life for him,"
said the honest girL
" Does he reciprocate your affection?"
asked the father.
"Thalhe .loes," replied the daughter,
;- but ho knows that you would never
consent to his paying his addresses to
me, ?rfd has been very, reserved about it.
lie talks like goin_' away because he can
not live, hero without seeing me, and
thinks you would be unwilling to hive
him visit the house."
The father sent for the young carpen
ter who came to the room with the gr?lt
est trepidation. Ile suspected what, and,
anticipating an immediate dismissal, his
heart was in his throat when the father
said to him : " Young man how is it that
you have dared to carry on a flirtation
with my daughter w ithout my consent ?"
"That is false, sir, utterly false, sir,"
the young man replied ; " your daughter
came to the house whore we were at
work and I saw her and loved her, 1 could
not keep my eyes from looking at her.
She returned my look, and interest, and
asked me questions. Almost overy day
she. has been at thc house, and her com
ing makes it seem a heaven to me, sir.
But 1 knew 1 was only a poor mechanic,
with a mother on my hands, and that you
would not consent to my offering her any
particular at;eutions. ?3o I have kept
away. 1 am going off, sir, so i-oon as the
job is done, for I cannot live without see
ing her, and 1 would not do anything dis
honorable, or that her father would disap
Tne young man turned his face toward
t!ie window to hide a few stray tears
which came into nis eyes. The. father
looked steadily into his secretary as if it
contained something of unusual interest.
After a not unwelcome silence he turned
to the young man and said : " You have
acted honorably in this matter. You shall
see my daughter all you please. I hear
that you are .".worthy, industrious young
man, and I prefer such a one for a son to
any dissolute snob. I am sorry your
education has been so much neglected.
Hut it is not too late to remedy that mat
ter. 1 will pay your wages regularly ti?
your mother and send you to school for
a year or two. After you get a good
foundation laid ? will take you into my
business ; and if you bear yourself in a
worthy manner, one of these days my
daughter shall bc your wife. You may
quit work at once.''
Our readers can imagine the scene and
thc joy that followed this speech of a
wise, and kind father far better than we
can describe them. Thc young man ha*
just finished a year's course at school,
where ito made wonderful progress. Thc
father seems to be as proud of him as
weil can bc; and he has found that life
in his new and elegant mansion on the
banks of the Hudson, with an accom
plished daughter who cannot sufficiently
express her gratitude for his kindness and
and th* occasional visits of a noble-minded
yoting man, who is working his way up
in the wo:ld, is only a sweet foretaste o?
elysium. If tither rich fathers would
follow his example there would be few
elopements und far less misery than a:
present, and a great many happy hearts
and happier homes.

Lessons from an Old Merchant,
That veteran and honorable merchant,
Jonathan Sturgesfof New York, at the
dinner given in his honor, on the occasion
of his retirement from active business,
gave the following golden counsel to
young men :
Noty, gentlemcn3 since there is nothing
that I can talk about that you do not un
derstand a great deal better than I do, I
propose to say a few words for the bene
fit of thc yoting men outside, and if you
approve pf what is said, let it be consid
ered as said by this grand j.try of mer
chants now assembled.
One of the first lessons I received was
in 1813, when 1 warral even y?ar? of age.
My grand-father had collected afine flock
of merino sheep, which were. carefully
cherished during the war of 1S12-'15. I
was a shepherd boy, and my busi
ness was to watch the sheep in the
fields. A boy, who was more fond -of
his books than of sheep," was-sent with
me, but left the work to me, while he lay
in the shade and read his books.
I finally complained' of this* to thc old
gentleman. 1 shall-never, forget his be
nignant smile as he replied : " Never you
mind, if you watch the sheep you will
have the sheep." i thought to myself,
what does the old gentleman mean ? 1
don't expect to have any sheep. My as
pirations were quite moderate in those
days, anda first-rate merino buck"was
worth ?1,000. I could not mane out ex
actly what he meant, but I had great con
fidence in him, as he was a judge and had
been to Congress in Washington's time ;
so I concluded that it was all t ight, what
ever he meant, and went out contentedly
with the sheep. A fier I got to the field
I could not get that idea out of my heack
Finally I thought of my Sunday lesson :
1 Thou hast been faithful over a few
things, I will make thee ruler over many
things!" Then I understood" it. Never
you mind who else*lieg?e*ct?d his duty, he
cou faithful and you will have your re
gard ! 1 do not think it will take many
ads as long as it did me to understand
I received my second lesson soon after
came to this city, as a clerk to the late
Lyman Uecd. A merchant from Ohio,
,vho knew 'me, came to purchase goods
>f Mr. '.Iced. Ile expressed his gratifi
?t ion at finding me there, and said.to
ne, " You have got a good place. Make
(.ourself so useful that they cannot do
without you." 1 took his meaning quicker
han 1 did thc proverb about the sheep.
Well, 1 worked upon these two ideas un
il Mr. Reed offered mc an interest in
The firs* morning after the copartner
<hip was announced, Mr. James Geery,
he old tea merchant, called to sec me,
md said to me : 41 You arc all right now j
have one word of advice to give you ;
ie careful who you walk the streets with."
i'bat was lesson number three.
In this connection I must repeat an an
ecdote told of the late Robert Lennox.
V country merchant came into the store
>f Mr. Morton, a highly respectable
scotch merchant, to purchase goods. He
poke about credit, references, &c. Mr.
Jorton said: 111 will give you what
redit you wish." ;i But," said the mer
haut, " 1 am an entire stranger to you."
Jr. Morton replied, '; Did 1 not see you
ou at church with llobert Lennox?'1
Yes, I was at church with him." " Well,
will trust any man whom Jiobert Len
ox will take to church with him."
I hope these three lessons of watchful
ess ever the interests of their employers,
watchfulness over their partners' interests
nd their own, after they are joined, fol-"
Dwed by intense watchfulness that no
lack sheep get into their folds, may be
npressed by these anecdotes upon the
linds of those tor whom they are-bl
One other lesson I feel it very neoessa
D inculcate-that of patience.
With a little patience, most 'young
len will find a posi'ion as high as they
ave fitted themselves to fill.
In all the changes which have taken
lace in my firm since 1822, no partner
as been brought in who has not served
sa clerk in the establishment. And now
leave my' house well-organized, prosper
us and free from complications, still in
ic hands of those who have served in it
s clerks fir a longer or shorter period,
mention this as an encouragement to
oung men to persevere in the faithful
erlbrtnunce of their duties.
Natural History of the Mule.
HY A. NUT MEO, KSQ.
Was you ever on intimate terms en ti fl"
Uh a mule, to studdy his little exentrisi
isl I was, and I now consider myself
>mpetent to write the natural history of
te (critters, which I shall proceed briefly
The mule is a very pretty, domr-stick'
limal ; he makes a very good substitute
r any animal except a lap dog, but he:s
ither ungainly for that.
He is the Oniy animal known whose
mic dident appear on Noah's passcrger
st at the time of tho great freshet,
'u'es has been invented sense that date.
Tharc habits is strictly domestic: Ive
cn wuii stand and.kick a hui our, he
re he could bc mdused to leave home
en f >r a short time..
They are a very good looking animal,
ben you consider what n humble kits?
are Father was, but most, of em con",
tct a habit in youth of wearing thnre
rs longer than is strictly clarie. They
int got so much tale, in proporshun, as
hoss, but they are more particular
but what little they have ; ir. aijjt a
ry safe amusement to play ,with a
ii I e's ta?e.
Tharc vois aint considered so sweet as
? nightingales, but it's more expressive,
d can be heard further on a still day or
lark ni te. I heard wun oreo in the
;ht, when I was gobi home from a mil
ite camp melin, and that's how I cum
be gray headed so early in life.
Mules l ave been called slow-motioned
Itters-this ?s a mistake ; a grand mis
te ; I discovered the falsity of this
inion wun day. i was standing about 'wo
three feet, from a mule, when.suddinly I
' thought Twas a snare drumM and sum
body-was beatin the long roil .onto me.
I ch?iiged ;my base quicker'? a district
school teacher when he discovers a.bent
pin between him and his chair; but when
1 took them -pants to be reconstructed
thare was 13 distinct impressions of a
mule's foot onto em. I never accused
mules of being slow motioned sense that
event. They ave much given to medita
shun, and have been frequently known to
stop in the mjddlfr of adays work, and get
s? lost in meditashun, as to forget to pull
a pound until recalled to a Realization of
the surrounding circumstances by the
persuasive eloquence of thare driver.
They are also very absent minded, as
a race, and' have been- known to forget
thare was a man on thare back, and lie
down )Tt a.mud puddle.to cool tharcselves
off-an absent-minded mule is an on
pleasant t; companion du voyage"-the
last is french, or supposed to Ge.
Some mules has a habit of kneelin
down suddin aiid absenfing thnresclves
from under a feller, when he's .-'din ; but
1 can't see whether this habit arises from
a natural inclination to devoshunal habits,
or from .a playful desire on thc mules
part to see how a feller looks ly in on his
stunimick in the middle of the road. I
can't answer for the mule, but I can take
my oath that the praktis aint noways
kondusiveto piety in the rider.
They is easy kept, and aint noways
particular what they eat, so it's good;
and-if hungry will chaw hay and even
oats and corn when they cant get thissels.
They is vegetarians by natur and eddyca
shun.'but they never let principle get the
best of inclinashun, on this or any other;
and Ive seen one spirt out a mouthful of
oats, to bite a pieee out of the feller that
was storpin over to curry their legs ; but
I dont know as they ever take eggs with
their ham on sich occasbuus. Theyrare
natterly of a /aceshus disposition, and
often give a feller a poke in the stummick
or ribs, jest to mi<ke him Im f.
I might say much iii ,the mules praise,
but I shunt until 1 take Hrrlyih'f?f n Irvin.
There aint. but one successful way a mule
can be managed, andihat is to make him
think you want him to be mean and ugly
as Satau ; then he'll bea good mule, Jest
to spite you.
A Siberian Execution.
A number of political exiles having Ht
tempted a rising against the Russian au
luorities, a number were made prisoners,
and seven of the leaders sentenced to
seven thousand blows of thc stick each :
At length a decision acceptable at Pe
tersburg was arrived at, by which the
prior Sierocinski, Druzdzalowski, Zab
lourski, Szokalski, Gorski or Zagorski (a
funner officer of Napoleon, more than
sixty years old,) who had all been draft
ed into the ranks of the Siberian army,
md thc Russian Mieledyn were eondemn
sd each tu 7,000 blows with thc stick
without mercy. If any one out uf the
number outlived thc sentence he was to
be sent to the Nerchinsk mines for the
rest of his life. The great mass of per
ions implicated were variously condemn
;d to 2,000, 1,000 or 500 blows with the
?liek, and those who survied to be sent,
in some ca?es, lo hard labor for life; in
ithcrs, for a number of years to penal
colonization ; 'and others again for a milt
:ar.y service in the morn distant garrison.
The day for thc terrible fulfillment of thc
Imperial will at length approached. It
.vas in March, 1807 ; the scene Omsk.
General Gaiafieyef, a man after the Em
ipror-'a own heart, had been dispatched
rom . St. Petersburg as his aller ego, to
lit perm tend the execution, and sec that it
vas ear.-ied out in its full severity. Al
laybreak two battalions of a thousand
nen marched out-of Omsk-one charged
vit h the murder of those condemned to
',000 blows, the other with the execution
if lesser sentences. The executioner,
?alafieyef, superintended the arrange
nerts, and remained with the. men who
i:td to give the 7.000 strokes. Accord
ng to general usage, the soldiers charged
vith such ditties ?ire placcd.clpscly shoul
ler to shoulder, and in dealing the blows
?ut slightly raise the arm from the elbow,
,nd keep their feet together, as when
tanding on parade. ' The sticks could
inly be so thick that three can be drop
led in a carbine barrel, On this occ-a
ion all this was reversed. Gaiafieyef
?laced the soldiers at arm's length from
ach tither, made them raise their arms
[igh in carrying'out thc sentence, and the
ticks were thrice thc Uiiial weight and
Not one of the six chief offenders out

Hended by the regimental surgeon ; the

is friends ere his own turu came, and he
ad long to wait for that deadly walk,
'hen his shirt was stripped from his
boulders, and his hands, according to the
egulations in such eases, fastened to a
arbinc held by two soldiers, who thus
(impelled him to keep regular step. The

ight yet liv?j were all conveyed to the

steppe, and bears witness to the sniTor

rubbing awhile she revived, and he then
became" conscious that there was some
thing wrong about the camphor. He
smelt of it, and found that all of its virtue
