"What good, John Thomas," Lord Perkins

'Tis enough for any one woman.
"And hinging and playing are pretty things,
But who except a gaby,
But knows that no wife ever plays or sings
After bringing her lord one baby
Now tell me, John Thomas, now tell me,
Can Mary Ann sew and cook
For those things, I own, are more in my way
When I for a wife would look."
'My lord she can cook my lord she can sew
My lord she can stitch and hem
But I own that, for my part, I doesn't fjo
Into marriage for things like them."
"Enough, John Thomas," Lord Perkins, he
"Enough, John Thomas," said he
"I. will go and marry my lady's maid,
And you may have my ladye."
At St. George's Church, in Hanover Square,
They were married all in one day
Lord Perkins he wedded the maiden fair,
And John Thomas the lady gay.
The marriage service a Bishop read,
In the roost impressive manner
Lord Perkins went home to his quiet home
John Thomas to his pehanner.
And so they were suited and so content,
And rejoiced in both their wives,
And, which I wish to every gent,
Lived happy the rest oftheir lives. iPuneli.

good things—among the rest that a
newspaper is like a wife, because every

Miss Dobbs says the sweetest line

"Don't hurry," exclaimed the mandirect,

A woman abandons her opinion, the
moment her hu»band adopts it. Even
in church the women sing an octavo

SMITH says: "A joke goes
a great way in the country. I have
known one last pretty well for seven
years. I remember a joke after a meet
ing of the clergy, in Yorkshire, where
there was a Rev. Mr. Buckle, who
never spoke, when I gave his health,
saying that he was a buckle without a
tongue. Most persons laughed, but
my next neighbor sat unmoved in
thought. At last, quarter of an hour
after we had all done, he suddenly
nudged me,exclaiming: "I see now
what on meant, Mr. Smith—yon
meant a joke." "Yes, sir,'said I be

laughing so heartily that I thought he
would choke, and was obliged to pat
him on the back.'

by Theodore Parker.

ue, Mr. Parker said, the people will
honor brave, honest old John Adams,
who never tailed his country in the
hour of need, and who, in his life of
more than tour score and ten years,
though both passionate and ambitious,
corrupted no woman and no man. He
was brave, deep-thoughted, conscien
tious, patriotic, and possessed of an in
tegrity as firm as the granite of the
Quincy hills. In his latter days, some
distinguished foreigners came to visit
him at. Quincy. lie met them by ar
rangement at a special hour, and sat
in a great chair in front of the house,
under the shade of a tree. "At the

but I expected nothing but ruin and

to regular and long-continued attention.
He had no taste for science, except
when stimulated by the presence of
Franklin. His first opinion was often
faulty, but his final opinion was com
monly deep, strong, and" represented
the true relation of things. Hence, in
spite of his great defects, he had natu
rally instinctive sagacity, and always
sound judgment. But he lacked meth
od, and did things helter-skelter. In
his administration as President there
was Do rule for anything. Construct
ing institutions, he could not organize
men, nor manage them when organized.
He was not a good administrator, ex
cept of his own private affairs, where
perhaps, his thrifty wife was the pre
siding spirit. He had no system, but
was governed by the enthusiasm of
the moment. In the most important
matters, he often went to work fluent
ly, with haste, and without good heed.
As a diplomatist at Paris, 1780, he ran
violently down steep places, careless
who he ran over or against In 1798,
he appointed Washington commander
in-chief, uever consulting him before
hand. An hour's explanation, or a
letter of a tew pages, would have saved
all the quarrel which grew out of that
act. He acted often from personal
whim and caprice. In a time of great
political crisis, in 1799, he left the seat
of government and went offtc Quincy,
where he stayed months long, leaving
affairs to manage themselves, or his
teacherous cabinet to manage them
John Adams had great moral vir
tues and great vices. Able-bodied,
compact, and vigorous, though not al-most
ways healthy, he had physical cour
age—in scholarly men it is a great vir
tue and rare. He says he meant to
be a soldier, but doubted whether he
should be a hero or a coward. There
was no occasion tora doubt There
was not a drop of cowardly blood in
those manly impetuous veins. He in
herited what we call"Mnm*V' and we
all know he transmitted. He had mo
ral courage in a heroic degree. He
conld not only face the bullets of a
British man-of-war, but he could con
front the wrath of his own friends for
Preston in 1770, and hear
the indignation and jeers of the feder
al party in 1779, for his adherence, to
what he believed to be the right Let
him only be sure he was right, and
John Adams only feared to be false to
his conscience. When the judges of
Massachusetts went under the golden
chain of Britain in 1773, and the gov
ernor held it low, in order, to have
them stoop more lowbefore the peo
ple, Adams said Impeach the judg
es!" and the court did no more busi
ness. Conscious of integrity, he never
hesitated to take a great responsibility,
and to take it alone.
He was terribly open, earnest and
and could not keep his mouth
shut. He knew this. Once he went
with some friends to see the great pic
ture of Washington, at Faneuil Hall.
Some one remarked upon the firm, well
set month, "It looks as if it could keep
a secret" "So he conld," said Mr.
Adams but"' (with his cane tapping
his own bust,) that d—n fool never
could." He was not a good judge of
character he often suspected the no
blest men, and put credulous faith in
the mean and deceitful. Intensely
ambitious of place and power as he
was, he yet always sought to rule his
desire by Ids duty. But if he sought
only excellent things, the spirit of the
cabinet at the seat of government, or
his butcher at Quincy, who brough in

"They will be sure of all the loaves

atrocious calumny. He speaks sneer
ingly of John Hancock, as "a man
without head or heart—a mere shad
ow of a man, and yet, governor of old
Massachusetts!" He did not like to
hear the praises of Washington. One
day, he dined with' a company of gen
tlemen in a town adjoining this. After
the dinner, a clergyman wished to
help him on with his cloak. He ob
jected, but the clergyman said: I
do too much for yon, when I
think what you and Washington have
for the country." Washington

These are some of the points in the
character of John Adams, as sketched
by Mr. Parker, and they certainly give
us glimpses of his character and of
those of his contemporaries, such as
of the books and orators take
pains to conceal. We say again, let
Mr. Parker give his excellent and con
scientious sketches in a book. The
next age will thank him for them, and
this will read them.

we find in the St Louis Advocate, is

somewhere else. At other times he
did justice to Washington, but always
a little coldly, for neither liked much
the other. In 1780, Dr. Franklin
wrote home to his government, Mr.
Adams means well tor his country is
always an honest man often a wise
man and sometimes, and in some
things, is absolutely out of his senses,
He adds, I know that by asserting
this, I hazard a mortal enemy." The
criticism was just, as the fear of the
consequences was true. But, weigh
ing the man in an even balance, his
fanlts are chiefly those of will and
temper, and a lack of decorum his
virtues are patriotism, truthfulness,
moral courage, integrity. These have
seldom been surpassed, rarely equalled,
in any public man. He had no preju
dice against any section of the country.
Here he was superior to Jefferson and
Washington, who never did justice to
Mr. Adams had strong temptations
to excessive indulgence in animal
passions but he never yielded to the
temptation, and in his old age he
proudly writes, No virgin or matron
ever had cause to blush at sight of me,
or to regret our acquaintance." Here
he was greatly the superior of Frank
lin, Jefferson, Hamilton, nay, of Wash
ington himself. These are great vir
tues. Few politicians, or other men
can count so much.

HEAT FROM THE STARS.—Doctor"
Lardner says: "It is a startling fact,
that if tlie earth were dependent alone
upon the sun for heat, it would not get
enough to make the existence of ani
mal and vegetable life upon its sur
face. It results from the researches
of Pouillet, that the stars furnish beat
enough in the course of a year to melt
a crust of ice 75 feet thick, almost as
much as is supplied by the son. This
may-appear strange when we consider
how immeasurably small must be the
amount of heat received fVura any one
of these distant bodies. But the Sur
prise vanishes, when we remember
that the whole firmament is so .thickly
sown with stars, that in some places
thousands are crowded together witb
in a space no larger than that occupied
by the full moon."

mutton chops and fricaseed mackerel,
