How like a peal of thunder awakening
as from some pleasant dream, when the dash

the tempest on the hill, and the blank dark

since sin furrowed the world with grave

rest and no solace for us any more.
Our feet would be weary on the green
hills of heaven in the first passionate consci

We have need w be thankful that
when man brought on the primal tlory of

AN OLD STORY.
BY MRS. L. H. SIGOURNEY.
Savs Tom to Jim, aa forth they went,
To walk one evening fine,
I with the aky a great green field,
And all that pasture mine.
And I,' eaya Jim, 'with yonder stare,
That there eo idly ehine,
Were every one a good fat on,
And all thoaeoxen mine.'
'Where would yoor cattle graxe t'
Why, in your pasture fair.'
'They ahould not, thal'a a fact,, said Tom;
They ahull not, 1 declare !'
With that they frowned, and atruck, and fou'l,
And fiercely atood at bay,
And fur a fooH.h fancy caal
Their old regard away.
And many a war, on broader scale ,
ilalh alained the earth with gore,
For ceatlea in the air, that fell
Before the (trife waao'er.

THE WRONG ROOMA FACT.-
THE WRONG ROOMA FACT.-OF COURSE.
During the war of the Revolution, and at
the time of the encampment of the British
army under Cornwallis on Pumplon Plains,
in New Jersey, there belonged to the 6th
regiment of Light Dragoons, a jovial, light
hearted fellow, whom for convenience sake,
we shall call Ned Rawson, and who boasted
the rank of Captain. We will not occupy
time in describing his personal appearance,
but, at the same time, wishing that the read
er should have a tolerable notion of it, we
will say for correct comparison, that he looked
exactly like himself.
Now, by the by, fumpton flams were set
tled principally by Germans, and there was
no wonder, that in so quiet a place as that
excluded region, tho "pomp and circumstance
of war" should strike Ihe honest-hearted peas
antry with awe, nor is at all strange that
swords and uniforms were tho admiration of
the buxom lasses of Pumpton Plains, who,
to do them justice, were by no means of that
style of beauty to be slighted, especially if the
beholder delighted in round, red checks ; lips
not precisely of the rose-bud order, but rath
er more like tho blood beet ; eyes, which,
when taken in connexion with the general
contour of the face, had that deep, heavenly
expression, which would be presented by
couple ot yellow onions floating in a pan
melted lard ; and a foot and ancle, oh I ye
Gods, let me not Bpcnk of them, lest transport
lay hold upon me ; and then this formidable
array of personal charms, veiled by the most
charming, bashlul, and retiring modesty.
In consequence of these things, were the
marriage of a goodly number of the rich far
mer's daughters to poor soldiers with line
uniforms; a thing which rather tickled the
vanity of the mothers, nnd no doubt pleased
the daughters. Uut notwithstanding this
"marrying and giving in marriage," tliere still
remained one beauty over whose head the
m.ttiimonial noose could not be cast, owing,
it must be conceded, to the obstinacy of her
misanthropic parent, who would listen to
proposal for the marriage of his daughter,
but guarded her as faithfully as did ever
monster Cerubus the cavernous entrance
Plut's infernal regions. He even went
far as lo serve a summary process of shoe
leather ejectment upon a young captain, who
had the insolence to propose n union with
his Mary. The sweet Mary was by no means
insensible to the attraction of laced caps
military whiskers, a thing not at all strange.
But not so with her choleric parent ; he
flew into a rage, declaring that officers
"vare von tarn boderation and trouble," and
completed his lecture by venting his spleen
on the targe house-dog, "Bijou," and kicking
the cat most unmercifully, whenever
came in his reach. The fact of Mary being
so strictly guarded, only made her an object
of interest lo the officers, since she appeared
like a something which might not be posses
sed a kind of forbidden fruit and this very
circumstance invested the innocent Mary with
No sooner had the saccess and treatment
of the captain became known, than he
roado the laughing stock of his "mess,"
the beautiful Mary was left to languish in
scurity, until the dashing Ned Rawson
dared his determination to make love to
Ilia fri.-nds thought this a dangerous under
taking, and so declared to Ned. But
dare-devil disposition loved the undertaking
the better from its difficulties and dangers,
and be philosophised, that if the old
should kill hint, he could never die a more
glorious death. As was customary among
the rich farmers, who were very strict in
performance of their religious duties ; Mary
with the rest of the family, wasobliged every
Sabbath, whether willing or not, lo attend
church, which act of devotion she the more
readily performed, as it afforded her an
of seeing a number of the officers.
Ned studied much and long before he could
contrive to gain an interview with the delight
ful Mary. At length he hit upon a happy
expedient ( the old church afforded or might
afford, the desired opportunity of conversing
with the object of his passion. Thither
accordingly repaired on the following Sab
bath. Ala-v was there. Alter the service
was over, Ned obtained her permission to
her home, and during the walk the man
ner of their meeting Was arranged, much
the satisfiaction cf Ned, though rather against
the scruples of the bashful Mary. It
concluded that inasmuch as they could
meet with the consent of the parenc,
would meet without his knowledge, and
the following manner. After all the rest
retired to rest, Mary was to L'ave her
burning at her window (and Ned Was
be should know it from among a thousand
account of its lustre !)thich window, nnd
room to which it belonged (though of
last I am not quite certain) were situated
the first noor of the old family mansion.
precisely ten o'clock, three friendly raps
the wmdow were to warn Mary of the
ence of her faithful cavalier. They met
tiight after this fashion,
"And all went merry a marriago bell.'
Nor was this the last mcctbg ; They sue-1
cceded each other as regularly as Sabbath
succeeded Sabbath. In the mean time, as a
matter of consequence, a strong affection
sprung up between the dashing Ned and tho
spirited Mary, and many a hnppy hour (stolen
of course, but like kisses, the sweeter for it,)
they spent together. Of course such pleas
ant days were not destined to last forever.
"The course of true love" never did "run
smooth," at least so we are taught to believe,
and so the termination of this affair goes to
prove. After an evening spent nt the card
table, in which the whole party had become
highly excited by the play, and plentiful
draughts of wine, Ned took it into his head to
visit Mary, his beloved Mary. He did not
consider how improper would be a visit at
two o clock in the morning, and that too,
without giving his "lady love" due notice.
He had arrived at that point which sets all
reason at defiance; and away he went. lie
had visited her so often, that he did not con
siJer it worth while to give the customary
warning raps, and "thereby bangs a tale."
Accordingly he hoisted the window, and ma
king a partial ingress, hung with his feet sus
pended over the sill inside for a momunt, and
then dropped. Thunder and blood suckers 1
He fell into some cold substance to his hips.
He then attempted to step forward, partly
because it was the will ofthe wine which he
had drank, nnd partly because the impetus
which he had g lined in dropping from tin
window sill, rendered it necessary to m tin
tain his phvoical equilibrium, the mental hav
ing been alri-ady I M. In his attempt lo step
forward, ho found tiis feet encased and en
tangled in something like a half bushel, and
he full forward at full length upon the floor,
with all tho noise attondant upon a calam
ity of that kind and time, and the tremendous
churn disgorged its liquid contents of butter
milk and butter over his splendid unifrora.
The truth flashed upon him at once. He had
got into "the wrong room." He did not pause
to Gnd further evidences of the fact, but left
in the quickest manner possible. But Mary
had heard all, and comp tebended all, when
she saw by the glimmering light of the moon,
her lover emerge from the pantry window,
drenched with the contents of the churn,
which, on the last evening, she had placed
under the window. Her plans were laid im
mediately. She went out and gotting Bijou,
she took him into the pantry and swabbed
him well with the same liquid which had be
smeared her lover. She then obliterated the
marks about tho window which Ned had
made in his egress, and returned to her bed.
The next morning she was awakened from
slumber by tho piteous yells of poor, innocent
Bijou, who received an unmerciful drubbing,
the old man declaring that "he vas von tarn
miserable schountril." As for Ned, he was
sick and confined to his bed for several days,
at least, until his uniform was washed and
dried. It is hardly necessary to state, that
Ned never visited Mary again ; he tried hard
to keep his adventure a secret, but it would
leak out, and Ned was obliged to throw up
his commission and return to England ; but
not, however, until Mary had informed him
by a note, of the result of the matter, and
begged him to continue his visits. Mary
could never after be prevailed upon to marry,
but lived an old maid, and died at a very ad
Scolding. It is as natural for some peo
ple to scold, as to breathe. They could
if denied the blessed pastime of dealing
such language. Even when unprovoked,
thehr words are as sharp as a two edged
word. To say that we had rather heat thun
der, is a feeble comparison. We had rather
hear a gong, especially if it calls to dinner.
We once knew a child who actually snivelled
because his mother neglected to scold bim
pounding the cat's tail with a boot-jack. The
trnth is, that children become so accustomed
to scolding that they look upon it as a matter
of course. We never knew a scolding parent
who could make a child mind without a hick
ory gad or broom-stick. They move only
when knocked end-ways. Reader, do you
scold ? Uayuga Chief.
"The following is Chester's tribute
Spring': it is as rich as a "grand old master's"
"A laugh rings over the hills and along
valleys as musical as lhat which, many days
ago, made the heart leap up, as do the waves
at nightfall to greet the coming of the stars.
"The air is full of melodious articulations-
for the orchestra of Nature, with singular
um-.twnK, takes up and prolongs the merry
uveiture ot spring.
"Beneath our feet starts the fresh and dft'z-
sling grass, here and there spangled wiih
butler cups, and made blue with voilets;
above our heads stretches a miatlesi sky.
"Like a soul that has passed from the hard
travel-paths ot' earth, lo put on the unfading
vesture of immortality, the desolitto trees
trembling with the throes of a new existenct
and are hastening to cover their nakedness
with garments of wonderful beauty.
"The waters flash in the sunbeam there
commeth to the ear the whistle of the robin,
the neighing of the loosened charger, and
bleating vl tho lamb.
"And this is Spring! the hew birth of Na
ture the legacy of the past and the emblem
of the future She commeth In the loveliness
of a goddess with tho gentleness of a child;
we adore the Divinity, and the lips of
youngling we cover with greatful kisses.
"Know ye not thut even now it is not spring
with nil? that wintery hearts, and frozen feel
ings are plentiful among us? Let us temper
our passionate Welcome with silent pity,
tako the abundance of our joy to give
those with whom all seasons are the same."
We know not at all the man we know
thoroughly. There are few men whodesorve
to be studied. From this it arises lhat
man of true merit has in general little solici
tude lo bo known. Ha it aware that
would appreciate him, nnd that iu this
number each one has his connections, his
his self-love, which prevents him
forming an unbiassed opinion, and from
to merit its proper place.
The following from Hino is excellent, and
We hope it may find many intelligent and at
We are all in the great School-House of
the Universe. We are all learners, from tho
first to the last breath we draw learners of
the Good and the True, or ofthe Evil and the
False. Every thing in the Universe that
comes within the reach of human contact pos
sesses an influence upon man. .Natures
School-House is beautifully adorned and mag
nificently arrayed. All that we complain of
in Society grows out of mental inferiority;
but as man is introduced to the works of Cre
ation admitted into the interior of Nature's
School-House, he grows superior, and his en
joyments increase, as do his virtue, his knowl
edge, and Ins development.
All that is required is to open the eyes ot the
blind that they may behold the beauty and
glory of God's Great Kingdom ; to unstop their
ears that they may hear the melody ot mture
nnd the music of the Spheres; and to unlock
the gates of the Understanding that man may
be bled with the great thoughts and noble
sentiments inspired by true Enlightenment.
lint there ate hchool-Houses on a smaller
scale. Every Houshold, every Church, every
Reading-room, Library, and Lyceum, in short
every place in which intelligent beings congre
gale, is a School-House, where mind is Edu
cated, where shape and direction are given to
human destiny. These are chiefly the schools
fir adult persons, and they have much, yea,
almost everything to do with the interests
and welfare of the people. In proportion to
their efficiency, is the present generation im
proved, virtue promoted, and happiness in
creased. The Household, however, is the School
House of the children in their earliest years,
when the most is done in the formation of
character. Same have thought that the prin
cipal elements of character are imparted du-
riug the first seven years of life; if so, how
absolute is the influence of Humanity ! And
when we reflect that so much parental igno
rance prevails in relation to the discipline and
development of children; when we reflect
that more than half of these Schools in even
our own land are most unfortunate for the
youth that are trained therein; when we re
fleet lhat the fashion and aristocracy on the
one hand, and the privation and vice on the
other, render childhood's home most destruc
tive to genuine worth and well-being, we are
sometimes led to despair of saving the whole
people from the evils under which Humanity
groans. But when we t'Jrn lo another class of
School- Houses, nnd reflect that they can be
made as attractive and emcient in moral and
intellectual culture as we please, there is some
relief to the sad picture of home nnd its dark
ness. In these rubllc School Houses the
children of unfortunate parents can find relief.
J. hey can be made most pleasant Asylums to
which they can fly for refuge from ugliness
unpleasantness, and depravity at home
Home ought to be the Holy of Holies in
tl.a Great Temple of Humanity. Everything
within nnd without ought to be beautiful, pure,
chaste nnd simple, iso base thought, vile
feeling, nor vulgar action ought ever to invade
this sanctuary. Much care ts taken of the
Church, and no one is permitted to walk her
aisles with unsandaled feet; but how much
more care should be taken of the still more
sacred temple of Home, where the mind of
every man and woman receives its first im'
pressions! And yet, little thought is given to
this. Too many of these nurseries are rank
with poisonons weeds. Too many Homes re
tilled with the deepest corruptions to which
the young are subjected.
Uut this is due to parental inferiority, and
while the mature cannot be suddenly trans
formed into angels, we can open the door
the i'unlic school-Mouse and welcome their
children to a house of heavenly refuge, where
the evil Influences of Home may bo counter
acted. The good is stronger than the evil
tho true thun the false. Tne young can be
readily attracted by the good and true, for the
children would be nearly right if half a chance
were given them.
All hail, then, to the Public School-House
nnd let no pains be spared to make it what
should be. What are some of the principles
that should direct in tho building of these cit
adels of Virtue, these temples of Human pro
cress, these pillars of the Kepublici
1. Its size should be ample for the accom
modation of all the children within walkin
distance unless in case of a large city, when
there are more than can be auvaniageoiiK
managed in one building. Five hundred,
eeil one tho isand, are not too many und
one roof, ptovided the institution be organize
as it should be.
2. It should be as pleasantly looaled as pos
sible, with ground enough for recreation, walks
green pint, flowers, and shrubbery. Tho in
fluence of these cannot be estimated. They
lend n charm to all around, soothe the rough
temper, increnrc the general amiability, and
do what the rod could never accomplish, dis
pose the pupils lo good order. This is highly
important to make the place atiractive to
those children who are unpleasantly situated
3. The building should be directed by chitectural
hkill, so as to subserve good taste,
convenience, comfort, and economy. Money
would be saved by patronising a good Architect,
who, under the directions of a good teach
er, should lurtnsh Ihe plan.
4. The building should be thoroughly ven
tilated, and it is as easy to secure this indis-
pensibie prerequisite lo health, ns it 13
make the school-room the generator of colds.
coughs nnd consumption.
6. there should be as many school nnd
citation-rooms as the number of pupils may
require; to large reception halls, one for
males, and the other for tho females and cal
culated for play-halli when the Weather is
clement xue school-rooms thould be provi
ded with the most comfortable seats and con
venient desks, all tod neat to be abused.
floors should be kept clean) and if carpeted
much the better. The walls should be hung
with maps, diagrams, and black-boards.
within should bo in good taste, and the doors
should remain locked UDtil the ringing of
8. Each School-House should be provided
with all the apparatus that can aid in impart
ing instruction, and if the public spirit would
place a good library there also, out of which
the pupils may draw books and circulate them
at those homes where scarcely a ray of light
is permitted to shine, it would be of immense
service in banishing moral darkness from so
ciety. Of course, the School-House will be more
or less perfect as the public sentiment of the
town is more or less elevated. These Edifices
ought to be the College of the Land from
