THE MERRY LAUGH.
I love to a hear a merry laugh,
Out-ringing wild and free,
As flonta the musio of the winds
Across the sunny sea.
The merry laugh goes hand in hand,
With happiness and mirth ;
And at its silvery toned command
Joy nestles round each hearth.
The inerry laugh bespeaks a heart
With noble feelings worm.
One that will bravely do its part
In sunshine or in storm.
The music of a merry laugh
Sets nged hearts aglow,
The ?mile? gleam oVr the wrinkled brow,
Like sunlight ou the biiow.
Then let the merry Inugh ring out
Upon the balmy air.
And let its gladness put to rout
The bold intruder?Cure.

Sl'FFERINO OF tiik AmF.RICAN EaGI.E.
Alluding to iho impassioned invocations addressed
to the American eagle by such as
would have him moult his feathers ancj assume
in their stead the bristles of the 'fretful
porcupine' because Mr. Secretary Cass
has re-announced the traditional policy of
our Government in the matter of naturalized
citizens who voluntarily return to their
native country, the Baltimore Patriot sympathy
ieally remarks as follows:
'Somebody ought to interfere in behalf
of this unfortunate bird. For now more
than half a century he has been incessantly
persecuted by village orators, lecturers, per
formers at junior exhibitions, and by politicians
in (and out of) Congress. Travellers
who have visited Switzerland will recollect
that at Geneva (of which canton the eagle
is the heraldic emblem) one is maintained
at thy public expense in a cage, but which
visitors are not allowed to worry. We,
who have also chosen him to represent our
'boast of heraldry and pomp of power,' treat
him, or allow him to bo treated, in a very
different manner. He i? fiomn?lleH tn An
all manner of things which no bird?even
an e;.glo?ever did before. He is set up
'on the top of the snowy Sierra' and 'on the
inaccessible peaks of the Rocky Montains,'
and thence made to descry the 'distant
shores lashad by the Atlantic surges or
laved by the placid swell of the Pacific.'
With 'his head in the North and his tail in
the South,1 be is made to 'flap nis broad
wings over a free and enlightened nation '
It is unusual, however, for his tormentors to
begin their worryings so early in the season
as has beet? done this year. Ordinarily it is
the custom (although there is no game law
on the subject) to delay these shots until
the Fourth of July, when the big gun of
the village is brought out and let off at him
in an oration.'
Affliction.?The sweet perfume of
many plants remains within them till they
are bruised. The alabaster box of precious
ointment did not fill tbe bouse with its pleasant
savor till it was broken. So, it is not
prosperity, but adversity, that brings out
the loveliness of the Christian character.
How much of the Saviour's glory would
have been lost to the world, but for his afflictions.
How shrunk and diminished
would have appeared that prince of apostles,
Paul, bad he encountered no peril or
trial in his earibly career! What beauty
and glory now gilds the martvrs of other
days, and of our own, which had been unknown
had they not gone through- much
tribulation. 'Prosperity is the blessing of
'.be Old Testament,' says Lord Bacon, 'adversity
is the blessing of the New, which
carrieth the benediction, and the clearer revelation
of God's favor. Yet even in the
Old Testament, if you listen to David's harp,
you will bear as bearse-liko airs as carols;
and the pencil of the Holy Ghost bath laboured
more indescribing the afHictioos of
Job than the felicities of Solomon.'
Flowers, Bright Flowers !?We fully
agree with a beautiful aud classic writer,
when be says the heart of man should bless
flowers. They are wreathed round the cradle,
the marriage alter, and the tomb. The
Persian in tbe far east delight* in their perfume,
and writes bis love in nosegays, while
tbe Indian child of the far West claps bis
hands with glee as be gathers the abundant
blossoms?the illuminated Scriptures of
the prairies. The Cupid of the ancient
Hindoos tipped his arrows with flowers, are
a bridal crown with us,"^nation of yesterday.
Flowers should deck the brow of the
youthful bride, for tbey are in themselves a
lovely type of marrifijge. Tbey should
twine round the tomb, for their perpetually
rented beauty is^t symbol of the resurrection.
They should festoon the algfr, for
their fragrance and their beauty ascend in
perpetual worship before the Most High.
Our sorrows are like thunder clouds,
which seem black in the dutanoe, but grow
lighter as tbey approach.''?

to drink ice water, for it has fatal inflammations
of tho stomach and bowels,

to drink it is very great in summor ;

as freely as possible, not only without
iujury but with tho most srtrikir.g advantages
in dangerous forms of diseases. If broken
in sizes, of a pea or bean, and swallowed
as freely as practicable, without much
chewincr or crushing between tho teeth, it
will often be efficient in checking various
kinds of diarrhoea, and lias cured violent ca

Water, as cold as ice can make it, applied

George B. Smith, lately deceased, was a
long time agent of John Astor, chiefly employed
in the collection of bis rents, for
which service Mr. Astor paid hira eighty
thousand dollars a year. I beard, for "I was
there" Mr. Smith say that bo collected one
hundred and sixty thousand dollars a quarter
of rents alone, and these were a small jiart
of his property. That Mr. A6tor, at the time
of his death was worth twenty-one million of
dollars. By his will he gave his son, Win. B*
Astor, flfteen million; a partof which was the
Astor House. Tbe remainder of his property
be gave away in legacies to different
persons. From the time of Mr. Astor's decease

Mr. Astor wasBix months bed-ridden, and
during all of that time gave orders daily to
Mr. Smith. He wentOMce every day to see
Mr. Astor, and William visited bis father
twice a day. Mr. Smith said that his habit
was to go iuto tbe sick room and quietly take
a chair and sit down by the bedside. If Mr.
Asior's eyes were stiut, be (Mr. S.) would sit
about ten minute*, and if be still remained
so, be would quietly leave tbe room. If Mr
Astor was awake, Mr. S. would tell him
what he bad done and Mr. Astor would

French Patent Leather.?The process
wbicb has been so successfully adopted
by the French artisans in glazing leather,
so as to give it ibe repute for superior quality

is to work into the skin with appropriate
tools three or four successive coatings
of drying varnisb, made by boiling linseed
oil with white lead and litharge, in tbe proportion
of one pound of each of tbe latter to
a gallon of the former, and adding a portion
of chalk or ocber?each coating being tbor
ougbly dried before the application of the
next. Ivory black is then substituted for
the chalk or octier, the varnish thinned with
sprits of turpentine, and five additional applications
made in the same manner as before,

IIonsEiiACK Exercise.?Tlio atainia of
constitution and vigor of body,so much superior
in former generations as compared
with tho prasent, was owing a great degree
to exercise on horseback. Years ago it was
almost tho only means of land transportation,
save on foot, f?r carriages a"d pleasure-wagons
Lave coino in general use within
the present century. Horseback exercise
for both sexes was general and common
within the memory of many now living.
as it is now in England and other portions
of our country, particularly the southern.
It gives robustness to the body, vigor
to the mind, freshness to the countenancc,
cheerfulness to the spirits, and health to the
viscera. In internal diseases it is too much
neglected. Dyspepsia, billious complaints,
consumption have increased in ratio proportionate
to the neglect of the saddloand pillion.
In those complaints it is invulnerable,
and if we worn Jllilfl In pnntrnl ?lm mnllor
tho regimens should lie compulsory. Try,
then, ye who aro toimented with dyspeptic
devils, tho liorso treatment. It will
bring more muscles into healthy action
than any other thing except boat rowing,
and produce that divertive influence upon
the mind, so much needed, yet so hard to
obtain. For the feeble maiden, with the
rosy hue of heaven upon the cheek, it will
do more than all things else combined ; and
if used early, will be worth the pains and
labor needed for tho trial. Let us, then,
have more of this exercise by all, for it is
needed for health, it tends to givo a person

Convention is already as good as dead. The
materials which it lias been proposed to
mingle in the Southern soup will not coalesce.
The specific gravities of the several

The probability is that the South will keep
out of the Convention altogether. The
hopes of Mr. Douglas are all gone, and
have been since llie triumphant entr)' of
that gentleman into New York and Philadelphia
some months ago, and any attempt
to lift llie little hero into the Presidential
Chair will only tend toward the modification
and defeat of that scale of the Democracy
that has been chipped ofT the old
block. The country is tired of the negro
question, and would, both at the North and
the South, prefer a man for President with
large and capacious intellect to any of the
small candidates proposed by mero factions.

Man's Wants.?Rev. J. C. Knowllon,
in an address delivered before the IViobscot
Agricultural Society, gives the following
summary of the wants of man :
1. lie wants to bo well born, that is, ho
wants to be born of healthy parentage, and
in a morally and physically healthy locality.
If ho is born wrong, ho seldom gets right
2. He wants to be well educated, or well
brought up. And by education he meant
that evory power and faculty of the mind
and body be developed, nnd brought to perfection.
3. Ife wants employment. Ho was mado
io inuor. ?lien idle, he is always committing
sin. It cannot bo othcrwiso. Labor
is the condition of happiness, and happiness
is for what we live.
4. I Io wants a location, a house, one
place in the wide world which ho can call
his own. No man ever enjoyed all of life
without it. And this bouse ho wants to
have adorned, embellished. There is no
ono who has not somo sense of the picturesque,
the beautiful, and the more home is
adorned, the more of happiness it will afford.
5. Tie wants a companion. It is not
good for a man to be alone. After a home,
every man wants a wife; every a woman
husband. He needs a wife to assist him in
the accumulation of monev. This said the
Rev. gentleman, although not strictly an agricultural
subject, is collateral to it.
6. Man wants a Christian hope for the
future, when ho shall have done with earth
and its labors.
