THE THRIFTY FARMER'S SONG.
ON THE APPROACH OF WINTER
Cold winter dr.iws near,
I! lit I euro not Tor thul.
Jlly potatoes nre dug.
And my hogs ore all fnt;
Sly ol is all up.
And my apples are in,
Ami my wheal's in the bnm,
Aud tny corn's in the bin.
lly hny's in the mow,
And my hor.es lie low,
Aud 1 have nothing to fear,
From the frost or theanowj
Tin ready, cold winter,
So come when-you please,
And let down your white sheets
O'er lulls and the trees.
B'ow, blow, howling horeas,
Wild o'er the hills,
And pile up the snow drifts,
And freeze up the rills;
1 care not how rudely
You rave through ihe trees)
I'm ready, cold winter,
So come when you please.
The poor mny all tremble,
The ahiflltnoi; fear,
And dread dreary winter's
Cold dreary career;
But as for myself,
I can sit at my ease,
AnJ sing winter, cold winter,
Just come when you ple.'.se.
There's a sllation ahead,' we heard a pret

i)n the whole road of life, from its slartin

there are 'stations,' though we pause but lit

track of life cannot be stayed. In hn ten let

from the hands of the Master Workman, it
Elans il on ils cour.e and whir's swiftly
away; hut over what Itact, or what country
time alone can tell.
Two angles (says an original proverb) are
Ihe engineers; one to keep ilsafe and tin
broken, and the other to lure it to collision
and wreck; and there are two brsku'eu on

Death I Swiftly il stars the heart beals high
with youth and health, '.he blood dances mer
rily in the veins like an unbridled courser it
epeed away, away into the future.
Uut there is aa'aiioti not far distant. One
that looms ever before the vision in day nnd
throws in brilliant light atliwart the track in
the hours when dreams have power. One
upon which we keep our eye fixed steadily,
unswerving, and which we long to reach
'long until the minutes seem hours, nnd the
hours years.' It is the golden station of
twknty-onk. We near il (ulas too soon, ) the
whistle is sounded, the bell .ung, nnd lo! even
as we reached it it is going past gone for
evei I Even more swiftly than we wished
its coming, it is lost in the distance and man
fio d throws i's station-light over the track.
Thiiatsn is reached, even while we ara look
ing buck upon the glerous flag of the one we
have passed, and the harsh scream of the life
engine awakes us from a pleasant dream.
Yet fain would we linger htre if we coiud.
Hut the fire burns high the wheels turn more
rapidly, and in the distance we behold, with
sinking hearts, the final station of the cheer
Way stations they are i:i the heart prosper
ity, sorrow, love, despair, all are dolled upon
the Map ol your life road, serving perchance
to supply more fuel lo the already brightly
burning (lame. Hut rocket-like we pass them

and re lost. A thought or two-a memory
and a hope we may bear with us, but that is
all that remains as we whirl on, while the
honrt sncine is bcnliiiK rapidly.
And thus we pass ftoin the depot of life to
Its final resting place little thinking perchance
we are so rapidly rearing it. Hut that some
heart engine 'slows.' Tile brakes of age and
disease press heavily upon tne wheel the
bloodstream throbs less forcibly as il we Were

alower still we go, until we scatcely move-
Then a faint low whislli is Heard lite colli

But there is another track beyond. A no' her?
Yes, a track unending ant! ever beginning
- ever rolling on, engineered by LoveoiulHe

useless there. Aye, there is a station ahead,
ever fiom the time of our starting, and from
the time of ourslnrting, and tho' all may not

ICTlt has been observed with much signifi

its bosom. How pregnant and stirrinc there

excited to day which may never expire ! Acts

These are sublime and solemn thoughts worthy

In Debt and out of Debt.
Douglas Jerrold has given the most empiric
and laithful picture of n man in debt that we
ever rend. It is worthy of perusal and re-
memhranre by fill:
"Of what n hideous prngency or ill is debt
the father! What meanness, what invasion
f self respect, wht carea, what double
lealingsl How, in due season, it will carve
the (rnnli, open face into wrinkles: hew like
k'life 'twill stab the honest heart! And
then its transformations ! How il has been
known to chante a goodly face into a mask
of brass; how, with the cursed custom of debt
has the true man became a callous trickster !
A freedom Irjin debt, anil what nourishing
sweetness may be found in cold water; what
toothsnmcness mi a dry crust; what ambrosial
nourishment in a hard egg And then for
raiment, what warmth in a threadbare coal,
if the tailor's receipt be in your pocket!
What Tyrian purple in the faded waistcoat;
how glossy the well worn hat, if it cover not
the aching head of a debtor! Next, home
weets, Ihe out-door recreation of the free
man. The stieet door knocks falls not a
k nt 1 1 on his htait, the foot o:i the a'.aircase,
though he lives on the third pair, sends no
spasms through his anatomy at the rap? at his
ooor, he can cry 'come in,' nnd his pulse still
beat healthfully, bis heart sink not in his
bowels. How confidently yet how pleasantly
he lakes the street, how he returns look fo'
look willi nny passenger; how he saiinitis;
how, meeting an acquaintance, he stands and
gossips! The man out of debt, though with
a Haw in his jerkin, a crack in his shoe leath
er, a d a hole in his hat, is still a son of lib
erty, free as the singing Ir.rk fcbove him; but
the debtor, though clothed in the almost bra
very, what is he but a self out on holyduy a
slave to be reclaimed at any instant by his
ow ner, the creditor ! My son, if pour, see
wine in the running spring, let thy month
water at Inrt week's roll, 'kink a threadbare
