some adventu'e. Add to this that he
was an excellent fiddler or-excuse me
Joe-violinist, and somewhat of a
botanist, and you have the picture of
the characteristics of the wildest of
our wild party of. surveyors.
Joe had two sisters at home who were
botanists, and his greatest delight was
to secure some new specimens to be
carefully preserved for them to class
among their collection.
On the occasion in question our rolte
lay right up the side of a steep hill,
inll places, almost perpendicular, but
which had to be measured for some
purpose. Three hours of hard labor,
and by the assistance of trees and
shrub:., and of each other, brought us
to the top. Here we stopped, in amaze
ment, at the lovely scene before us.
On our right hand the hill was out
off and left for a perpendicular side
or wall of solid looking rock of near
two hundred feet in height.
At the base of the wall spread out a
little circular piece of level ground,
through which a branch of the Potomac
flowed along, shining in the sun like a
silver thread in a setting of green,
and far away lay a view of the littl
valley hemmed in by lofty h'
covered to the top, except wher
rough rocks boldly jutted out,
The place, as we afterwards lernoe
was called - The Buck's Leap,' d oi
party stood for some minutes gazing
in silent pleasure on the scene.
At length Joe walked forward to the
edge, aid anll exclamation of pleasure
escaped him, and at the same t inl, he
colnmmenced throwing off his vest and
tving his handkerchief around his

Young LZadies, Read.
1VIuA'r a number of idle, useless
young women--they call themselves
young ladies - parade our streets !
"They toil not .neither do they spin,
yet Solomonl irihll his glory was not
arrayed like one of them." I)o they
over look forward to the time when the
real cares and responsibilities of life
will cluster around them ? lhavo they
made, or are they making any prtepara
tion for the onerous duties which will
assuredly fall to their lot-duties to
society, the world, and God ? They
lounge or sleep away their time in the
morning. They never take hold of the
drudgery, the repulsive toil, which each
son and doughter, of Adam should per
form in this world. They know nothing
of domestic duties. They have no habits
of industry, no taste for the useful, no
skill in any really useful art.-They
are in the streets, not in the perfor
ance of their duty, or for the acqui
of health, but to see and be seen.
