The Mistake' of u lUoi-nhig; or,
lhiryi the wronif Itndy.
A scene serious in itself, though at the
sumo time laughably ludicrous came o(T
in litis city. There lived in Baronne
street, uml indeed there lives there still
a poor but industrious couple Frank
Farrel and his wife Mnry. If Frank
were to die his excessive wealth, at least
would not preclude tlio possibility of his
admittance into the place reserved for
tlio elect. Frank is poor, hut he has a
wife whom ho loves one who loves him,
u home where contcntmout is a perma
nent lodger, and habits of industry which
secure health and afford him the means
to supply his wauls which ore but few. -
He follows the business of dyeing ren
ovating old garments- or in other words
like a practical moralist, improving the
habits of the current generation; in fact,
ho dyes to live. Though a man of known
veracity, he cives a coloring to almost
everything ho touches; und although of
strictly abstemious habits, lie is liequent
ly seen blue.
1 ho early part ot last week Mary tool;
tlio yellow fever, uud Frank being strong
ly advised to send her to one of the pay-
wards of the Charity Hospital where she
would have the best udvico and medical
attendance, he did so. For two days,
on each of which he called soveral times,
her case continued to bo a dangerous
one; and Frank remained in a state of
exciting suspense, lest her whom he so
dearly loved should puss out of existence.
On the night of the second day, the phy
sician thought ho saw symptoms of im
provement, as if the crisis of tho case
had been past; and this was an announce
ment which Prank hailed with all tho
gratification, inspired by sincere affection.
He went homo to his humble resilience.
uud that nii'lit had pleasurable and
right dreams of Mary, happy days and
a better fort 11 no. '
Early in the morning a message camo
to him from the hospital that Mary was
dead thut she died at one o'clock in the
morning that her corpse was in the
dead house and that if it was not taken
nway before the doctors came, they would
lissect it. The ad news froze for a mo
ment life's current in Frank's heart, but
tho idea of hor body, instead of be
ing buried where he could make a periodi
cal pilgriinmago to it, anaplant flowers a
round it being subjected to the scalpel of
the unfeeling surgeon, again set it in rap
id motion. He hurried out to the under
takers procured a hearse and coffin, went
directly to the dead house where he found
the corpse of a female called Mrs. Far-
rell, which he quickly took and interred.
Immediately utter sundown on lues-
day evening, while yet the reflection of
its light lingered in the western horizon
as Frank sat lolitary and ulone in his lit
tle shop, chewing the cud of bitter re
flection, a female form darkeneu me
door and entered. As she did so, she
said in a feeblo voice and reproachful

Our readers by this tiino know the or
igin of this budget of blunders. There
were two Mrs. Farrells admitted as yel

Frank buried one of them, believing it
was his own Mary. It proved to be the
mistake of a morning.
The Farmers' Creed.
We believe in small furnis and in tho
rough cultivation. . The soil loves to eat
as well as its owner, and should be nur
tured. We believe iu largo crops, which leavo
l he laud better thai) they found it mak
ing both the farm and farmer richer at
We believe iu going to the bottom of
things, and therefore in deep ploughing,
and enough of it all tho hotter if with a
Wo believe that the best fertility of tho
soil is the spirit of industry, enterprise
and intelligence; without litis, lime and
gypsum, bones and green manure, marl
or plaster, will be of little use.
We believe in good fences, good barns,
good farm houses, good stock, and good
houses. " '
We believe iu a clean kitchen, a neat
wife in ir, a spinning piano, a clean cup
board, dairy and conscience.
We firmly disbelieve iu farmers that
will not improve; in farms that grow
poorer every year; iu starving cattle; in
farmers' boys becoming clerks and mer
chants; in farmers' daughters unwilling
to work; and in all farmers who are asham
ed of their vocation.
"I want you to go over to Mr. Mason's,
and borrow me his newspaper," said u
man well to do in the world, lo his son
Robert, a lad of thirteen.
"But, father, he can't have had it more
than an hour," remonstrated Robert.
. "All the better for that my son; I like
to see the news bofore it is old."
"But I don't think Mr. Mason has had
lime to read it himself. The last time I
went to borrow it for you he said he had
hardly looked into it, und he seemed, as
though he did not wish to lend it."
"He is very disobliging then, to be un
willingtolend a newspaper to a neighbor.'
, "Why, he pays for it, and shouldn't he
have the hrst reading ot it!
Don't talk about what you don't un
derslaud, Robert, but go to Mr. Mason,
and ask for the paper.
Robert slowly and reluctantly obeyed,
and in a few. minutes returned with the
borrowed paper, which the owner had
not yet found opportunity to open.
And this is but one among a multitude
of incidents of a similar character, which
are constantly occurring to the great an
noyance, and sometimes to the serious
disadvantage of those who subscribe and
pay regularly for the newspapers which
they read.' Numerous instances of con
stant and indiscriminate borrowing, in
which the lentlet has been exposed to
much inconvenience, and vexation, have
come within my own personal observa
tion. Quite recently, 1 heard a gentle
man remark that when he commenced ta
kins a certain newspaper, he resolved
that he would never lend it until he had
j first read it himself. Ho persisted in his
i determination, notwithstanding consid
! us his own, was in the habit of wulching
the carrier, and possessing himself of the
paper as soon ns it was left. After read
ing it to his satisfaction, he returned and
replaced it. ,
In view of such cases and they aro by
far more numerous than is generally sup
posed we have but one word of advice
for the newsquper borrorowers "Sub
scribe and pay regularly for your papers."
Dr. Franklin remarks that a man as of
ten gets two dollars for the one ho spends
in informing his mind, as he docs for a dol
lar he lays out in any other way. A man
eats up a pound of sugar and it is gono,
and the pleasure he has enjoyed is end
ed; bat the information ho gets from a
uewspnpor is treasured up to be enjoyed
anew, and to bo used whenever occasion
inclination cull for it. A newspaper
is not the wisdom of one man or two men;
it is the wisdom of the age, und of past
ages too. A family without a newspaper
is always a year behind the times in gen
eral information; besides they can never
think much nor find much to talk about.
And then there are the little ones grow
iug up in ignorance without any taste for
reading. Who, then, would be without
a nowspapor?" "
RPDuring the Revolutinary War,
Gen. Lafayette being in Baltimore, was
invited to a ball. He wont as requested,
but instead of joining in the amusement,
as might be expected of a young French
man of twenty-two, ho addressed the la
dies thus: "Ladies, you are very hand
some; you dance very pretty; your call is
very fine; but my soldiers haveno shirts?'
The appeal was iriesistable; the ball
ceased; tho ladies went homo and went
to work, and the next day a large num
ber of shirts were prepared by the fairost
hands of Baltimore, for tho gallant de
fenders of their country. Bait. Patriot.

Inlltieiirc of lt;iilro:il.
A short time since, says the Concord.
N. II. Journal, wo met a heuvily loaded
team a liule distance from town carrying
chesnut sleepers Jo the depot. Being of
a peculiar shape, we inquired to what
use ihey were lo bo appropriated. The
teamster replied that they were engaged
by a contractor, and were to be shipped
to Havana to build a railroad in the island
of Cuba; Concord chestnut, once nearly
worthless, now bringing a high price, and
shipped 3000 miles to build railroads!
We believe the teamster's load was worth
$50, all door gain thiough the magic in
fluence of railroads.
A respectable citizen of our town, once
a resident in Springfield, on the drary
hoights of land between the Merrimack
and tho Connecticut, near which the
Northern rnilroad is to pass, lately in

nestly to soil a lot of timbered land at

Chatter on Tears. Tears are some-
limes a relief, and sometimes a burden;
they are a relief to a woman, but a bur
den to a man; they relieve a woman be
cause her sympathy approves them; they
burden a man, because his pride rebukes
them; a woman weeps because she feels,
a man because he can't feel; a woman's
tears aflect a man, but a man's tears dis-
affect woman; a woman weeps for others,
a man for himself; a woman s tears are
common property, a man's are his own;
a woman believes them a profitable in
vestment, a man cousiders them a useless
expenditure, a woman's tear's are easy
and natural, a man's aro forced and awk
ward; women's are warm streams of the
summer cloud, man's the cold droppingof
'lire icicle.' ; - .-
