The joy.bells peal a merry tune
Along the evening air ;
The crackling bonfires turn the sky
All crimson with their glare;
1 > ,1 l ? - ? .1*1 - -
xjuiu music mis tno sumieu sircuis
With mirth-inspiring sound;
The gaping cannon's reddening breath
W akes thunder-shouts around ;
And thousand joyful voices cry.
"Huzza! huzza! a victory!"
A little girl stood at the door.
And with her kitten play'd ;
I ,c?s wild and frolicsome than she,
That rosy prattling maid.
Sudden her cheek turns ghostly white ;
11 or eye with fear is fill'd,
And, rushing in-of-doors, she screams?
" My brother Willie's kill'd !"'
And thousand joyful voices cry,
"Huzza! huzza! a victory!"
A mother sat in thoughtful easr.
Aknitting by the fir? ,
Plying the needle's thrifty task
With hands that never tire.
She tore her lew gray hairs, and shviclc'd,
" My joy on earth is done!
Oh! who will lay me in my grave?
un, Uod ! my son ! my son !"?
And thousand joyful voices cry,
" Huzza! hazza ! a victory !"
A youthful wife the threshold cross'd,
With matron's treasure bless'd ;
A smiling infant nestling lay
In slumber at her breast,
She spoke no word, she heaved no sigh,
The widow's tale to tell,
But like a corpse, all white and stifT,
Upon the earth-floor fell.?
And thousand joyful voices cry,
"Huzza! huzza! a victory!"
An old weak man, with head of snow,
And years threescore and ten,
Looli'd in upon his cabin-home,
And anguish seized him then,
lie help'd not wife, nor helpless babe,
Matron, nor little maid.
One scalding tear, one choking sob ?
He knelt him down, and pray'd.
And thousand joyful voices cry,
" Huzza ! huzza! a victory !"
ijOve one AXOTiinn.?Do we not often
foil to manifest that love wc profess,
and which serves as the central link in

should remember that the follies and
false steps of a brother should call forth
our love more strongly, and our more
zealous exertion thc?t we may win him
back, and encourage him to walk uprightly
and surely. It is not unfrequently
that we are friendly to the pure and
honorable, and that we love those who
love us, and whose conduct is in unison
with our own conceptions of what is really
good. But if such men falter
through weakness, are found indulging
in one evil habit, or speak or write in a
tone that is offensive, we are too likely
to withdraw our friendship?suppress
the love we cherished for them, and
manifest a coldness toward them, and
an entire indiflerencc to their respectability
and welfare. In this respect we
arc prone to turn from the example of
Him in whom " wo trust" to forget the
power and love of kindness, to reform
and bring bring back and exercise that
base principle which drives the wanderer
" When creatures stray,
Farthest from God, then warmest toward
His love, even as yon sun boams holiest on
The earth when most distant."
PltESERVAItlON OF ROOFS OF BUILDINGS.?A
letter on this subject, in the
Boston Cultivator, says that an old roof
may have its usefulness extended for
many years, by simply spreading pul- J
vunxuu quicK nine over u, so as 10 lorm
a very thin coat of it on the roof, which,
"by the absorption of the dew, the alkaline
solution will be formed, and will
penetrate the shingles, which wilL be
cleared from moss and preserved by it,
and on the occurrence 01 a heavy rain
the insoluble parts of the lime will be
washed off, leaving it clean.
The tendency of white wash to preserve
wood from rotting, is universally
acknowledged, but it should be borne
in mind that it is the alkaline solution of
tho lime only, which has this tendency,
and that the gross, insoluble particles of
tnc ume wnich remain lor a time in the
form of a scale on the surface to which
it has been applied has nothing to do
with its application is to preserve the
wood only, it would better accomplish
the object by being much more diluted
than it generally i?vso that tho alkaline !
quality would be more thoroughly ab-1
sorbcd than is usually the ease. It is a
very curious and interesting fact that '
water, at the freezing' point, dissolved '
twice as much of the alkaline ingredient
of lime as boiling water does, so that '
the use of hot water to dissolve lime is
worse than useless.
Strength op the Human Frame. <
?One of the most remarkable and (
inexplicable experiments relative
to the strength of the human frame,
is that in which a heavy man is
raised with the greatest l'acilty
when he is lilted up the instant
that his own lungs and those of J
the persons who raise him arc inllat.ed
with air. The heaviest <
person in the party lies down upon 1
two chairs, his legs being suppor- j
ted by the one and his back by the
other. Four persons, one at each
leg and one at each shoulder, then
try to raise hirn, and find his dead (
weight to be very great, from the
difficulty they experience in sup- j
portinghiiy. When he is replaced i
in the chair^fech of the i'our per- 1
sons ifiKo nam oi nis ootiy as dclbre,
and the person to bo lifted
gives two signals, by clapping his
hands. At the first signal, lie him- '
self and his four lilters begin to
draw a long full breath, and when j
the inhalation is completed, or the I
lungs filled, the second signal is *
given for raising the person Irom j
the chair. To his own surprise .
and that of his bearers, he rises t
with the greatest facility, as if he i
were no heavier than a leather. J
Sometimes, when one of the bear*, j
ers performs his part ill,by making i
the inhaling out of time, that part '
of the body which he tries to raise
is left behind. The exj.eriment
was performed at Venice by sustaining
the heaviest man of the
party on the points of the fore-fingers
of six persons. It is asserted
that the experiment will not sue- !

f-'orne vandal thief, who visited
the mansion of the venerated

last week, was guilty of a shameful
mutilation of an exquisitely
sculptured marble mantelpiece
which had been presented by La- .

panel upon which the muti- 1

scene, with a small cottage
in the front, a well, a girl

which are cabbages, radishes, &c.

" Having examined, with some care, a

it affords me pleasure to slate, that the

lessons are judiciously selected, well ar- 1
ranged, and calculated at once to improve 1
the mind and heart. Dr Ruschenberger's

are admirable, and supply a deficiency
