Passe not to dream of the future before as,
Pause not to weooed the wild caren that come o'er us
HarkI how creation's deep musical chorus,
Untatermitting, goes up to Heaven I
Newr the ocean wave falters in flowing,
N.etthe little seed stops la Its growing,
Mdh eod more nlebly the req heart keeps glowing
TiU from its nourishing stem it is riven.
(Labor i wordhipl" the robin is stalging;
"dLbor is worip I" the wild bee is ringing;
Listen,-rt4t elegant whibper, upepringlog,
Speakb to y soeal from oat natdre'fgreat heart
From e dark cloud lows the life-giving shower,
From the rough sod blows the soft-breathing fower
From the small inset the rlbh coral bower;
Only man in the plan sinlk from bhi part.
Labor is lhi-'Tis the still water leth;
Idleoses evr despaireth, bewalleth;
Keep the watch wound, Ifr the dark rust amaileth
lowersn droop sat die in the tillness of noon.
Labor I. glory I the flying loud lightens;
Only the roving wing changes and brightens;
Idiebeerte only the dark future frightens;
lay the sweet keys would'st thou keep in tune.
Laber i rest--from the sorrows that greet as;
Rest from all petty vexation, that meet no,
Bet from aln-promptings that ever entreat us;
ent frouI world-irens that lure us to Ill.
Wor.c-and pure slumboer shall walt on thy pillow;
Work-thou shalt ride over Care's eomlng billow i;
Lie not down worried 'neath Weo' weeping willow,
Work with a stout heart and resolute will !
Droop.net, though shab e, sin, and anguish are
nravely ling of the chain that bhath bound thee ;
Loeek to you pure heaven abmling beyond thee I
Best not content in thy darkness-a clod!
Work-for some good, be it ever so slowly;
Cberish some flower-be it ever so lowly ;
Laber I all labor Is noble and holy
Let thy good deeds be thy prayer to thy God I
BE GEZ'NTLEMEN AT HoME.-Thero arc
few families we imagine, any where, in
which love is not abused as furnishing the
license for impoliteness. A husband, fath.
or, or brother, will speak harsh words to
those he loves best, and those who love him
best, simply because the security of love
and family pride keeps him from getting
his head broken. It is a shame that a man
will speak more impolitely at times, to his
wife, or sister, than he would to any other
female, except a low and vicious one. It
is thus that the honest affection of a man's
nature proves to be a weaker protection to
anvoman in the family circle, than the re
straints of society, and that a woman is us
ially indebted for the kindest politeness of
life to those not belonging to her own
household. Things ought not so to be.
The man who, because it will not be resent
ed, inflicts his spleen and bad temper upon
those of his hearth-stone, is a small coward,
and a very mean man. Kind words arei
circulating mediums between true gentle
men and ladies at home, and no polish ex
hibited in society can atone for the harsh,
language and disrespectful treatment too
often indulged in between those bound to
gether by God's own ties of blood, and the
still more sacred bonds of conjugal love.
1SWiRev. Mr. Balm, of Chicago, Ill., in
serts'a prayer in the Olive Branch of that
city, which runs thus:
" 0, Lord I have mercy on our special re
vivalist preachers; mercy and goodness,
we humbly beseech thee; keep them from
taking ladies who become converts upon
their knees, and holding them in their arms
and kissing them."
It strikes us that the Rev. Mr. BALM
speaks rather freely in his prayers, though
he probably speaks knowingly.
"MORE'N YOU'LL KEEP."--Some years
ago, an old sign painter, who was very
cross, very gruff, and a littlb deaf, was en
gaged to paint the Ten Commandments on
some tablets in a church not five miles
from Buffalo. He worked two days at it,
and at the close of the second day the pas
tor of the church came in to see how the
work progressed. The old man stood by,
smoking a short pipe, as the reverend gen
tlemanan ran his eye over the tablets.
"Eh I" said the pastor, as hip familiar eye
detected something wrong in the wording
of the holy precepts,- " why you careless
old fellow, you left a part of one of the
Conmmandments entirely out--don't you
" No-no such thing," said the old man,
putting on his spectacles; " no, nothing left
"Why, there," persisted the pastor, "here
look at them in the Bible- vou have left
some of the commandmients out."
"Well what if I have," said old obstina
cy, as he ran his eye complacently over his
work-" what if I have? 'I'here's a damn
ed sight more there now than you'll keep I"
Another and a more correct artist was
employed next day.

the state papers extant on the question of state
rights as announced in the Virginia Resolutions
of '98 and '99. The publicatgon will embrace
also the works of standard writers, such as
John Taylor of Caioline, whose works are now
nearly out of print. These valuable political
data will be carefully collected, and when com
pleted, will furnish a complete constitutional
history of our Federal Union. The subscrip

It is time for us to go go back to those pure
principles upon which the great fabric of de

by those who created, and best understood the

that the friends of state sovereignty should ral

wild latitudinarianism of the age, and evident
tendency of the republic towards concentration

hundred back, bounded on the cast, north and
soulth by apnblic street, and on the west by
the residence of D. C. Hardee, Esqr.

large and airy, raised several feet off of the
ground, to admit the free passage of air under
neath. It contains eight large rooms, four
above, and four below; four measures eighteen
feet square, and four are seventeen by eighteen.
There are also two large halls, one above, and
one below stairs. Also two balconies, both on
the upper story, one in front, the other in the
rear of the house, with a piazza on the lower
story, fronting the street.
This house was built for a family residence,
and every attention was paid to the construe
tion of every portion of it, with a view to beau
ty of structure, comfort and health. No resi
dence can be found in the Purish surpassing it
ni these particulars.
The kitchen is large and commodious, con
taining four extra rooms.
There is a most excellent well on the prem
ises, affording water in good quantities, amply
sufficient for all family purposes.
The entire establishment built in the fall of
1853, is entirely new and in an admirable state
