7STNGS ON LIFE.
Six thousand years have passed away,
Since Time first ppread his youthful pinion
With rostlesirnotioB to survey
The vide extent of Lis dominion.
And he has kept his onward flight,
' And left the nighty wrecks behind,
Of nations, prourj of skill and might,
In dimness and in death enshrined.
As thus the mighty pa?t we scan,
How short appears the life of man I
Since Eden's bowers were denied,
Wlmt throngs of men have Jived and died !
The earib is one vast grave, which groans
With teeming lifo 'midst human bones,
In all, the glowing thrill of life, -
Brought hope, and joy, and pain, and strifu;
Ambition's lofty kindling flame,
Intensely burning after glory j1
But Oh ! how few have left a name
When they were gone, to tell their story.
, And gnao now on the varied forrris
; Of busy life that press around.
And know what hope each bosein. warms,
Wbntsecret wish wails to be crowned.
And see men labor and contend,"
, To gain some trifling, selfish end. '
Then turn from this degen'rate rnce
To yon blue depths of boundless space,
Where suns and systems their vast rounds
Perform within their stated bounds,
And know who guides tins mighty plan,
And feel how small a thing is man :
Who is as waves upon the ocean, '
Lashed by the Sturm-kind's angry hand,
. Tossed to and fro in wild commotion,
And lost as they upon the strand.
Death sets his signet at each birth, '
In glaring letters on each brow ; ;
And time will shortly sweep from earth,
The throng of life.thnt crowds it now.
I asked the mighty past how long
A lease it gave this living throng ?
From ocean, mountain, grave and glen,
The answer came, "three score and ten."
And ia this all? shall man) proud man,
Be narrowed down to this brief span 1
This littlo round of fleeting years,
O'er which are scattered smiles and tears ?
'Tis even so and day by day
Tho feebler pulse tells off its number,
And soon must cerise its busy play,
Locked in death cold and lonely slumbers.
Yet man toils on as thou gh his leaso
Of life were endless, and his gain
Would bring his roubled bosom peace,
And shield his trembling form from pain.
Mistaken man I how vain the toil,
Which seeks to hoard up glitterirg spoil !
Or seeks to twipe around a name,
The unavailing wreath of fame.
Wealth is but dust, a crown, a toy,
Which few attain and none enjoy.
All things of earth soon cease to please ;
What madness then to live for these !
There ia a better world than this,
To those who eek it freely given ;
A home of never-ending bliss,
With all the happy throng in heaven,
Where Time no moro will bring his change,
Nor Death his iron sceptre wield,
Where blissful spirits free may range
For ever o'er creation's field.
To gain that bright and blissful sphere,
Is surely worth the toil while hero.
When life's dim lamp shall feebly burn,
And earth shall open wide her urn,
What else but hope can cheer the gloom,
Yhich hangs around the lonely tomb ?
And when this little life shall end,
And dust with kindred dust shall blend,
The good of earth will sink to rest,
And trust their spirits to God's keeping,
As infancy upon '.he breast
Of its fond mother calmly sleeping.
Then clothed in robes of spotless white,
The spirit frce'd from this dull clay,
Will plume its wings and take its flight,
As th aught now haps from earth away.

Georgo T. Thomas, vs. tho Administra
tor of W. P. Miles, deceased. Error to
the District Court of Hamilton county.
T. and M., partners in trade in the city
of C, agree to dissolve partnership ; M.,
the party retiring from tho establishment,
binding himself that ho shall not within
five years enter into nor be concerned in
the kind of business conducted or carried
on by the said firm, nor any branch thereof
within the said city, nor interfere in any
way with any agency before established by
tho firm, nor establish any similar agency
that may interfere or compete with any
agency of tho firm or of the party succeed
ing to its business upon its dissolution,
whether such agencies be established in tho
said city or elsewhere. Held.
1. That such a contract was reasonable
and proper, so far as it restrained M. from
engaging for a limited time in the city of
C. in the business heretofore pursued by
2. But so far as it attempts to prevent
M. from interfering or competing with any
branches that T. might establish, at any
and all other places, it is clearly opposed
to public policy, and ia therefore void.
3. Such a covenant is divisible, and it
does not constitute a breach of its legal
obligation?, if, within tho timo limited,
M. should become employed at a distant
point as an agent or otherwise, in the busi
ness in which tho firm was engaged.

he could have written such a prayer at a
time of such great trouble, and not once
mention the Vircin Mary in it ? Yet we
find there ;3 not one WOrd in the whole
nraver addressed to any but God alone.
He does not ask the help of tho Virgin
Mary. Hear the prayer of St. Patrick :
"At Tara, to-day, the strength of God pi
lot me the power of God preserve me
may the wisdom of God instruct mc the
eye of God watch over me tho car of
God hear mc the Word of God give me
sweet talk the hand of God defend me

Christ in mc ; Christ under mo ; Christ
over mc ; Christ on my right hand ; Christ
on my left hand; Christ on this side;
Christ on that side ; Christ at my back ;
Christ in tho heart of every person to whom
I speak; Christ in the mouth of every
person who speaks to me ; Christ in the
eye of every person who looks upon me ;
Christ in tho car of every person who hears
nie at Tara to-day." Now this is the doc
trine and faith of St. Patrick, and not one
word is there in it about the Virgin Mary,
and this is the faith of Protestants. Now,
therefore, I say, St. Patrick was a Protest
ant, and this is tho doctrino which, by
God's help, we hope to preach to you in
Dunlewey Church. God bless you nil."

Winter Management cf Sheep. ,
In wet weather it is of great advantage
to be able to fodder under shelter. I have
abandoned tho practice of salting my hay,
except when compelled, by stress of wea
ther, to houso it before it is thoroughly
cured. My sheep arc salted about once a
week tho year round, and instead of giving
them tar, as recommended by tome persons.
I occasionally strew the yard with pine
boughs, of which they arc fond.
I regard the fall management of lambs
one of tho most important branches of
sheep husbandry, They should bc separa
ted from their dams about tho fi rst of Sep
tember, and with a few old sheep, that re
quire nursing, t urned to the best pasture.
Caro should bo taken that they are not
stinted till removed to winter quarters.
when they should have a small allowance
of grain or oil-meal, in addition to a plen
tiful supply of cood hay. As soon a3 the
pasture begins to fail, tho ration of grain
should be supplied. By neglecting to pro
vide suitable pastures for a lot of upwards
of 100 very superior lambs, one seasou,
lost the greater part of them the ensuing
winter. My utmost efforts, after I discov
ercd the error, were ot no avail. I gave
them a comfortable shed, plenty of littc
good hay, and a regular allowance of meal,
and free access to water ; but they never
recovered, and the greater part died before
My bucks and ewes aro put together
about the first of December. The flock
which I keep at my homo barn, under my
own eye, and from which I raise bucks
for the supply of my own, and many of
my neighbor's flocks, is managed in this
way. Tho ewes iu lots of 20 to 35 arc
placed iu separate pens, and a select buck
is turned into each pen, where they are
kept together 15 or 20 days. The ewes
in each pen aro marked with a letter in
tar and lampblack, to indicato what buck
they were served by. At shearing time,
the best buck lambs are selected, and re
ceive a mark to denote their origin.
In my judgment, water is as essential to
sheep, as it is to any other animal. They
will go through the winter on snow instead
of water, and so would man or a horse, if
compelled by necessity to do so; but ci
ther would prefer to have it thawed before
using it, rather than perform that office in
When my sheep run in large flocks
without shelter, they were occasionally af
fected with tho scab, but since I have pro
vlJod comfortable sheds for them, they
have been troubled with no serious disease.
This climate is well suited to sheep. E.
