AM I HAPPY!
AnV I happy ? Burniuer's ray,
Ca-sta ou us its cheering beams,
Earth is clothed in bright array,
Mirthful now nil nature seems.
Am I happy ? ouk the flowers
Springing in our pathway here,
VTriy iu this loved world of ours,
liieuds, aud hopes must disappear
Apj I happy ? ask the star
Beautiful and bri-Lt to see
Suiting in ita orb afar
If there's happiness lor me;
Am I happy a.k the leaf
Waving on its j.arcnt bought
PImll my heart Cud sweet relief
Or be ever sad as now.
Am I happy ? yotfth lrJt fled
Soon with me life's cares will cease,
Vheu I'm numbered with the kad,
Will my spirit rest in peace ;
Ami happy hopes will cloy
Brightest prospects fadeaway,
Though our hours be mixed with joy,
Life is but a fleeting ray.
Am I happy ? friends sincere,
Tusscd before roc to the tomb,
Transplanted from this lower sphere,
We trust once more in heaven to
Am I happy oh my soul, bloom j
"Why this weary, longing sigh,
Will not God my heart control,
If I on his name rely.
Am I happy ? oh my Lord
Guide me to thy courts above,
There may I with one accord,
Worship thee the God of love ;
I am happy, but' in thee
Oh thou Prince of truth and light,
Way thou still my portion be,
Oh sustain uie by thy might.
Hints to Husbands.
We not uufrequcntly meet with "Ad
vice to Wives," but seldom anything re
meeting a husband's duties to his Wife.
The following selection by a fair corres
pondent, being very good, we copy it for
the benefit of our readers :
"It should not be forgotten that a wife
las her rights as sacred after marriage as
before, and a good husband's devotion to
his wife will concede quite as much atten
tion a3 his gallantry did while a lover. Be
fore marriage a young man would feel
tsumo delicacy iu accepting an invitation to
u company where his lady-love had not
been invited ; after marriage, is he always
i particular? During courtship, gdlan
try would demand that he should make
himself agreeable to her j after marriage,
it often occurs, that be thinks more of be
ing agreeable to himself. How often do
men, after passing the day at their stores
or places of business, leave their wives
alone iu the evening to tend some place of
amusement and even uhen the evening
is spent at home, it is employed in some
way which does not recognize the wife's
right to share in the enjoyment of the fire
E1 Look, ye husbands and consider what
your wife was when you took her, not from
compulsion, hut from your own choice a
choice based on what you then considered
her superiority of all others. She was
young, perhaps the idol of a happy home,
"gay and blithe as a lark, and was cherish
ed as an object of endearment at her fath
er's fireside. Yet she left all to join her
destiny with yours ; to make your home
happy, to do all that woman's love could
prompt, woman's ingenuity could devise,
to meet your wishes, and to lighten the
burdens which might press ou you in your
She, of course, had her expectations,
and she did expect you would, after mar-
r'iaoc rcl'frui l'l0S0 k'lU( cmt:C3 f whith
you were so lavish in the days of betroth
rocnt. She became your wife ; left her
home for yours ; burst asuudcr, as it were,
the bonds of love which had bound her to
her father's fireside, seeing no other boon
than your affection ; left, it may be, the
case aud delicacy of a home of indulgence;
and now what must be her feelings if she
gradually awakens to the consciousness
that you love her less than before ; that
vour evenings are spent abroad j that you
only come home to satisfy the demands of
hunger, to find a resting place lor your
head when weary, or a nurse for your sick
chamber when diseased. Why did she
leave the bright home of her youthful
days ? Was it simply to darn your stock
ings, incud your clothes, and provide for
the wants of your household? Or was
there some understanding that she was to
ho made happy in her connection with the
man bhc dared to love ? It is our candid
opinion that in the majority of instances
'of domestic misery, niau is the aggressor.

GETTING IN AT NIGHT.
'The door was locked when I got home,'
slid Tom, 'and how to get in without wa
king np 'the governor,' was the difficulty.
I knew he'd give iuc particular fits if he
kuew I was out after ten, and tho clock
had jut struck one. The- back yard was
an impossibility, aud but one cliauce re
mained. There was a jiorch over the
trout door, the roof of which wiw but a few
feet below two windows. One of them 1
knew was fastened "down, and the other
opened from a bedroom, which might or
might not be occupied. An old maiden
sister of Tom's wife bad arrived on the
came day, afld it was very probable that
she was in that room ; but I knesv the bed
was in the corner farthest from the win
dow, and hoped I thould get in and thro'
the room without flwikcniog her, and then
I had a comparatively easy thing of it.
So getting a short plank from a neighbor
ing board pile, I rested it against the cave
of the shed, pHled off my shoes, put them
in my pocket, ana then "cooncd up." All
right, so far, but I thought it necessary,
iu order not to arrouso any suspicious in
the morning, to remove the plauk ; so drag
ging it up, I threw off the end, and down
it went with an awful clatter on a stray
dog that had followed me for two or three
squares, who immediately set up tho most
awful howl a whipped hound ever gave
tongue to. That started half a dozen oth
er dof's in the neighborhood barking; a
mocking bird in the window abovo com
menced singing as if he intended to split
his throat at it j an old woman in her night
i .1 . . i ii -1 i i
clotnes, witu a canine in ncr uuuu, appear
ed at the window across tho street. I knew
I was safe as far as she was concerned; but
if any one came to our windows, tho can
dle gave enough light to very probably
discover me. Nobody did come, however,
aud the old lady, after peering up and
down the street for a minute or more, pop
ped her head in and retired. Tho mock
ing bird still kept up its eternal whistle,
and it was fully half an hour before it and
the dog settled down and gave me a chance
to move. Creeping slowly along the wall,
I reached the window, I put my hands on
the sill, sprung iu, and, with my head and
shoulders withiu, and my legs hanging
out, stopped to listen. Yes, she was iu
that room, for I could hear her breathing.
After waiting for a minute, I cautiously
drew up one leg, then the other, slewed
them round, and, putting them down to
the floor, was just conscious that I had
stepped on something soft and yielding,
and was about withdrawing them, when
another yell broke out at my feet, the old
maid jumped up from her bed crying 'Mur
der ! murder !' and the dogs aud tho mock
ing bird started again. I saw through it
all ; I had put my foot in it more ways
than one. A little darkey was lying ou
her back, under the window, and I had
stepped on her face, and of course waked
her up. I decidod in a flash what to do.
Thc whole house would be aroused, and
I caught, to a certainty, unless I could get
to my rooiu before the governor was up.
But I hadn't a moment to lose, for the
little nigger was yelling, and the woman
screaming, so I started for the door, and
made three steps and struck a chair, tum
bled over, of course, made the awfulest
racket you ever heard of in the dead hour
of night, in a peaceable house ; the nigger
and the old maid screamed louder than ev
er, and the mocking bird whistled like a
steam whistle, and the dogs fairly made a
chorus loud a3 J ullian's.
I reached the door, however, swiftly and
quietly opened it, and just got out in time
to see tho old gentleman open his door,
with a candle iu his hand, aud come hur
rying up the stairs. Not a moment was
to be lost. There Was a wardrobe near
where I stood, and I sprang behind it.
Up came the governor, reached the door,
opened it, went in, and iu tho meantime
there was all sorts of confusion and inqui
ry down stairs as to what was the matter.
Nobody clso came up, though, and from
where I ituod I heard every word of inqui
ry and explanation in the room. Of course
they couldn't make much out of it. The
little darkey was too frightened and too
sound asleep at tho time, to understand
the truth, and the upshot of tho business
was, that they concluded sho had been
dreamiug, and the governor, after giving
her a sound spanking, mid explaining the
matter to the aroused neighbors, from the
window, went down to his room again.
'So far, so good. I now had to go down
stairs, reach tho back door, unbar it, get
into the yard, make for the room, which
was in the second story of a back build
ing that stood unconnected with, and about
a dozen yards from the main one. After
giving everybody another half hour to set
tie down again, I started. Boy's did you
ever try to get up or down a pair of stairs
at midnight, without making a noise ?
You may try all sorts of ways, but every
step is sure to creak, each with a peculiar
noise of its own, aud loud enough, you are
certain, to waken everybody. I had got
ten nearly to the bottom, when a little fiato
dog cauio trotting up the entry towards me
yelling furiously. A suppressed "come
hero sir, you Tit,' silenced him, for he rec
ognized me ; but tho fiste started the mock
ing bird, and thedogi in the neighborhood
having learned to ake the cut), of course
joined chorus for tho third time.
'I rati along tho passago, reached the
door, and unlocked it, just as the governor
roused the second time, opening his door
aud be ing a man escaping fiom tho hou;;o
by the back way, of course cried 'Thieves
Thieves!' and made a rush after roe. I
was too quick for hira though, opened the
door, sprang out, broke for tho door that
opcucd into the room below mine, and had
just reached it, when crash ! within a foot
of my head went a brick, and another voice
that I knew belonged to next door neigh
bor Tompkins, joined the governor in the
cry of Thieves! Thieves! Murder! I was
safe though. Bushing up the stairs, I
shelled myself quicker than I ever did be
fore or since, and was in bed and sound
asleep in less than half a minute. Wasn't
there a row though f I never heard ko
many dogs before, tho mocking bird, of
course, was out doing all previous efforts,
the chickens even began to crow, Temp
kins next door was hallowing "thieves,,'
and calling the governor. I could hear
screams and all sorts of talking and noises
among the neighbors, until at length the
old gentleman's voice was heard in the yard
calling 'Tom ! Tom !'
'Tom was sound asleep suoring.'
'Tom !' cried the old man in a voice
that would have roused a man from an ep
'I judged it prudent to wake then, and
jumping from my bed raised the window,
and rubbing one eye, and looking particu
larly frighteue d, (which I was,) asked :
'Why, fathor, what in the world's the
'There's thieves in the house,' was the
reply ; get your gun and come down, and
'lie's in tho room below you, Tom,' hal
loed Tompkins, 'I'm certain of it. I saw
him as he ran down, and threw a firo brick
at him. I know he did'nt pass that door,
'I was directed to 'look out for myself;'
tho governor stood sentinel at the door be
low, armed with a club, while Tompkins
had five minutes to collect aid from the
neighbors, and less than half that timo, so
thoroughly was every house alarmed, there
were a dozen or more men in the yard, arm
ed with guns, pistols and sticks.
'The governor led tho attack. Opening
the door, he called, 'Come out here, you
house breaking scoundrel. If you attempt
to run or resist, I'll blow your brains out.''
Nobody came, however.
'Watch the door,' was the order, 'while
I go in,' and I was told to 'look sharp' and
shoot the rascal if he came up stairs.' A
momentary search was sufficient to satisfy
everybody that the thief was not in that
'He's up stairs, then,' cried Tompkins,
'for I'll take my Bible oath he didn't pass
'So up stairs they trooped but I had lit
a candle by that time, and there was no
bug-bear there. The strictest search, even
iu looking under a bootjack, didn't show
the faintest trace of him. The yard was
next examined, then the house, and every
body being tolerably well satisfied that he
had escaped, the neighbors dispersed to
their several homes, but I was appointed
as sentinel for the rest of the night, and
ordered not to go to sleep on my post un
der penalty of a flogging.
The articles missing, on a thorough in
vestigation next day, were two pies, and
the old lady's silver thimble. The thim
ble turned up in u week or two, being dis
covered under the corner of the carpet, but
the pies have never been accounted for to
this day. On oath, I could have given
very material testimony as to the disposi
tion of the stolen property, but as the case
did not come before any court, I remained
Didn't the local editors loom though.
One of them cnlongated himself through a
quarter of a column, and headed the item,

Burglary and Murder!' describing, with
graphic particulars, the fiendish attempt to
throttle Miss and her servant, com

li. Tompkins, Esq,' and perorated with a
withering anthema on tne want of vigilance
displayed by the police.
'It was fun for mc to sec with what wide
awake sagacity tho watch used to stop at
the front door and listen during their night
ly rounds, for a month after, and you could'nt
have bribed a youngster to go under the
porch on any account after dark. Tho ex
citement died away, though, after a while,
but I'll never forget tho night I tried to
get in 'without niakintr a noise.'

laughter convulsed their honors, wo need
not say, when, on opening the supposed pa

from tho New Jersey Penitentiary.

Items for the ladies.
Lady readers, the following hintB may
be useful :
Britania should bo Erst rubbed gently
with a woolen cloth aud sweet oil, then
washed in warm suds, and rubbed with
soft leather and whiting. Thus treated,
it will retain its beauty to the last.
New Iron should bo gradually heated at
first ; after it has becomo inured with the
heat it is not likely to crack. It is a good
plan to put new eartheuware into water aud
let it heat gradually until it boils thcu
cool again. Brown eartheuware, particu
larly, may be toughened iu this way. A
handful of wheat or rye bran, thrown in
while burning, will preserve tho glazing,
so that it will not be destroyed by acid or
Clean a brass kettle before using it for
cooking, with salt and vinegar.
The oftener carpets arc shaken the long
er they will wear. The dirt that collects
under them grinds out tho threads.
If you wish to preserve fiuo teeth always
clean them thoroughly after you have eat
en your last meal at night.
Woolens should be washed in very hot
suds, aud not rinsed. Lukewarm water
shrinks woolen goods.
Never allow ashes to be taken up in
wood, or put into wood.
Always have your matches and lamp
ready for use iu caso of sudden alarm.
Have important papers all together, where
you cau lay your hands on them at once in
case of fire.
Do not wrap knives and forks iu wool
ens. Wrap them up in good strong paper.
Steel is injured by laying in woolens.
Old bread may be made almost as good
as new by dipping the loaf in cold water,
then putting it in the oven after the bread
is drawn, or in a stove, aud let it heat
Isinglass is a most delicious starch for
fine mujlins. When boiling common starch
sprinkle in a little fine salt, it will prevent
its sticking, some use sugar.
Pride and Folly. Wc were once ac
quainted with a married lady not a thous
and miles from the Mohawk valley, who
was very respectably connected but in in
dignent circumstances, who was in the con
stant practico of making largo pretensions
to the gentility of her extraction and boast
ing of the intimacy of many of the most
distinguished men of the country with the
family. It was her pride to speak of those
things, and many were the talis she boast
ingly told to the friends pud neighbors of
the scenes in high life which she had be
held and in which she had been a partici
pant in earlier years. One day at a neigh
borhood party her old theme was again
broached. Among other things she spoke
cxultingly of the intimacy that had always
cxistcdbctwcen her fathers family and the
late Henry Clay, and said that the distin
guished statesman had frequently dined
with them, at her father's table. But
while just in the depth of her exultant pride
the company were not a little taken aback
and her starched pride "wilted," by her
father, an aged and honest old gentleman;
who happened to be present on a visit to
his daughter, and having overheard her
boasting, saying luud enough for all present
to hear, "yes. yes, daughter, but it never
was on my iuvitatiou! Mr. Clay diued
with the gentleman who boarded at our
house." Keeping a boardiug house was
altogether beneath her ideas of gentility.

The Philadelphia Enquirer says. Some
thing rich and racy may be expected. It
will contain sketches, anecdotes and reviews
of men and matters connected with the
profession of tho law. Mr. Brown has
been in active practice in this city for many
years, has long been regarded as one of the
most brilliant and captivating speakers, and
has bad opportunities of collecting togcth
