OLD AGE.
The old man loves the sunshine and the
fire, the arm-chair and the shady nook. A
rude wind would joslle the fnll grown apple
from its bough, fnlh'po, full-colored, loo.
The internal characteristics correspond.
General activity is less. Salient love of
new things and of persons which hit the
young man's heart, lades away. lie thinks
the old is better.* Lie is not venturesome ;

is no more buzzing in Iiis ears. Madame
de Stac-l finds condensation in silence fur
the decay of pass-ion that once fired her
blood ; heathen Socrates, seventy years old
thanks the gods that ho is now free from
that 'ravenous beast' winch has disturbed his
philosophic meditations for many years.
Romance is the child of pa?sion and imagination
; the sml.len father that,thn longprotracting
mother rtiis. Old ago lias little
romance. Oil I v some rate man, like WilTietni
Von Humboldt, keeps it still fresh in
Lis bosom. In intellectual matters, tlie ol*l
man lov<*s to recall the old time, to review
his favorite old men?no new ones half so

oldest ofjthe,Greek?, is always talking of tlie
olden timef>l>^foro the Grandfathers of the

THE FIRST LOCOMOTIVE TRIP.
Major lloriuio Alien, the engineer of
the New York and Krie Kailroad, in a
speech made during the recent festival occasion,
gave the following account of the
first trip made by a locomotive on this
continent:?"When was it? Who was
it? And who awakened its energies at;d
directed its movements? It was in tie
year 1828, on the banks of the Laekawaxen,
at the commencement of the railroads
connecting the canal of the Delaware
and Hudson Canal Company with their
i : j l _ ...i - _ i ' _ ..
cuiti iui?'f3?miu lie who miurcsses you
was the onty person on that locomotive.
Tlie circumstances with l*d to my being
alone on the engine, were these : The road
had been built in the Bummer; the structure
was of hemlock timber, and rails of
large dimensions notched on cap?, placed*
farnpart. The limber bad cracked and
warped, tram exposure to the sun- After
about 300 feet of straight line, the road
crossed tlie Lackav.axeu creek on trestle
work about 30 feet high, with curve of
355 to 400 feet radius. Tlie impression
was very general that the iron ouster
would either bjeak down the road or it
would leave the track at the cu-*- > and
plunge into the creek. My reply to such
apprehensions was that it was too late to
consider the probability of euch occurred.ce;
there was no otherscourse than to bavd a
trial made of tlieistrange animal, which
had been brought here at a great expense ;
but that it was not necessary that more
than one should be involved in its fate;
that I would take the first ride alone, and
the time would come when I should look
back id the incident with ' great interest.
'As I placecf flVy hand an the throttle valve
handle, I waa flndecided as to whether I
should move slowly or with a fair degree
ofepeed; bt;t believing that the road
would prove safe, and preferring, if we
didjjo4?^^ go.handsomely, and with*
oovapf'ejridence of ti{i}h3?t?r'I started with

SEARCH FOR WIVES.
I Where do men usually diavover tlie woI
men who afterwards become their wives?
| is a question we have occasionally heard
| discussed ; and (he result invariably come
I to is worth mentioning lo onr young lady 1
J rear!iris. Chance has much to do in the \
| jifT.tir, but th*n there arc important govern- j
; in" circumstances. It is certain that a fow !
i
mull make a selection from ball-rooms, or j
| any oth'jr place of gaiety, and nearly as j
i lew are mllneiired by what may be called
j showing ofi' in the streets, or by any allure.
ments of dress. Our conviction is, .lhat
| ninety hundredths of all tlic Gnery with i
j the women decorate or load their persons, |
go for nothing, as far a3 hii.-band catching !
if concerned. When and Iiow, then, do |
men find thoir wives? In tho quiet homes j
I of their parents or their guardians?at the

j tii? charms which most surely attract the :

| all the finery and airs in tiio worid sink inJ
to insignificance. We shall illustrate this j
! by an anucdote, wliicli though not new, j
will not be the woi.-c for being agaip lohi. |
In the year 1T78, Peter liuruull, E-q., of j
Rockingham, in Kent, whoso health was
rapidly declining, was adv"i>edby his physicians
to go to Spain for the recovery of his
health, llis daughters feared those who
only had motives eutircly mercenary would
net pay him that attention which he might
expect from tliofe who, from duty and affection,
united would feel the greatest plea
sure in ministering to his ease and comfort;
they therefore resolved to accompany him
?They proved that it was not a spirit of
! dissipation and gaiety that led them to
Spain, for they ere not to be seen in any
[ fashionable circuit'; they nevr stirred from
their homes except to alien*] liiin either to
take the air or drink the waters; in n word
they lived a most reulnse life in the midst
of a town, then the resort of the most illnstratious
nnd fashionable personages in Europe.?The
exemplary attention to thei<
father procured these three admirable sisI
lets tl;e admiration of id! the English at
Spain, aud was the cause of their elevatiou !
to that rank in life to which their merits
gave them so jus*, a title. They were nil
married to noblemen?one to the E"U'l of
Beverly, another to the Duke of Hamilton
and afterwards to the Marguis of Exeter,

And it is justice to say, that they
reflected honor on their rank, rather thnn !
derived any from it.?Spirit of the Age.

thus Constituted is'no less a roonster,'
some one has said, 'than the big-headed

is a type of men of this stamp. Humanity
recoils from them when once they
unreil their remorseless egotism, their sublimated
sophistry. Voltaire, Rousseau.
Napoleon, Robespierre, were monsters of
this class, scarcely less hideous to me than

A STEAM CARRIAGE SUCCESSFUL ON
COMMON ROADS.
The Carl of Caithness has built a carriage
which is to he propelled by steam (
power upon ordinary turnpike roads. On /
a recent occasion be made a trial trip, ami "5
though,as the local pnper says:
"The roatl was filled with horses and '
conveyances of all kinds, his lordship passed
through them all without any raoru in
convenience to the general traffic or alarm
to horse than if ho had been in his car- (
riage and four. So perfectly Jiad he the (
whole mSvtng power under tho control 1
that he slopped more quick'y than an ordi- '
nary carriage and horses could draw up, ,
and-this ho did as often as he-saw the least j?

in :m liour and twenty minutes, notwith- 5
standing the frequent stoppages, and fifteen |
minutes lost in getting water. Alter leav- I
in<j Beauty, on those parts of tho road
where some distance forward can be seen,
he attained the speed of eighteen miles an
hour, and could have kept this up for any
distance with case and safety.
After reaching Allnuss Ilia lordship turned
lo til'* left, ami took the road direct fur
Bannr Dtidjie. Here tlio carriage had a
~ V- j
severe lost applied to it, hut lie drove it ,
lip the hills without difficulty, and coming
down tliii very stofp declivity near where
I lie road joins (lie load from Tain the control
liis lordship had over-it was most satisfactory.
and enabled hiin to descend at
any rate ho wished, and with perfect ense '
and safety. Leaving tho hospitable inn at '
Ardgy, Lord Cathness crossed Bonar
Bridge, and drove off to Clasbmoro, after '
a successful drive of nearly seventy miles. '
Saturday being very wet he remained th?re
till tlio afieriK.on, and then drove on to
Golspie to remain over Saturday, a.id having
perfect confidence in his carriage from
its working on Friday, lto expects to reach
Barrogill Castle, a distance of eighty
miles, ami over the steepest roads in Scot- I
land. Tlis lordship has made this bold j
step of applying steam as a propelling
power to carriages on common ro;;d? for
any long distance, and the results of the
j first day lias more than answered the ex
I pectations of its warmest promoters, and
left no doubt as to its being not only practicable,
but useful, when so applied.
THE GOOD PABTOB.
HV JAMES K. PAULiyHO. '
A man full of charity, of humility, and
all the examples of a virtuous* pastor.
Without pride, without arrogance, and
without hypocrisy, there was a beautiful
simplicity iu his life arid aclions, a kindness
a gentlenoss, a forbearance, harmoniously
combined with a holy zeal, a never-tiring
industry iu doing good to all, that marked
liiin out as one of those chosen shepherds
sent by Ileavon as a blessing to some chosen
flock. Cheerful without levity, he joined
in all the innocent amusements of his
simple parishioners, and happy himself in
the consciousness of a useful and virtuous
life, as well as in the rational anticipation
of a blissful eternity, he walked among his
people, not as a shadow, darkt ning all
around, but as a snn, cheering animating,
blessing those who basked in his sinues.
Careless of his rest, and his personal labors,
he was ready at all times, by day and
by night, to go forth to comfort the afflicted,
relieve the sick, and soolhe.the dying.
He asked nothing for himself, and gave
everything to others; labored not in his
own vineyard, but in that of his Master,
and the fruits of his exertions soon became
visible to avery eye. A cheerful, innocent,
gavety begun to appear again in the village';
thejpeople went forth to their daily occupations
with smiling hopes, that caused
nil lo exert themselves in their various
pursuits. Begging took refuge in the labors
of its own hands, and found itR reward
rn tho comforts of independence, and the
approving smile of the excellent pastor, 1
who never lost an opportunity of rebuking
the idle, or npplauding the industrious, for ^
well he knew- that among all classes of

Female Education.?An essay on this
important subject has just fallen into our
I)and-) which ranks ameng the best it lias

Llio pen of one of the most accomplished

R?*v. D. C. Van Norman, LL. D., Principal
:>f tlie Van Norman Institute for the cducrlion
of young^ ladies, West Tliirty-eightjtreet.in
this city. An extract or two will
ronvey a moro adequate idea of itsoliaracler,
and of the author's views on wbat may
b? called the philosophy of levelling, than
iny description tlint could be given in the
amn space. There is no intelligent parent
ir gnariliiin who will not readily assent to
jvery word in the^ following extract:?'In
ho education of girls, it is ^especially important
that the mode of instruction, as
well as nil the arrangements and exercises *
at the school, have constant and studied
regard to the distinctive and essential characteristics
of their sex. These may bo
comprehensively exhibited in the terms,
Modesty, Tenderness, Graco. These should
bo guarded as vestal fires; for tlioy constitute
the vital essence of womanhood, investing
it with all its beauty and loveliness.
Like the bloom and fragrance of the roeo

Gcially, injuries done to these vital elements
of the female character by the methods of
instruction, and the machinery of schools,
may be referred the affection, boldness, prudery,
sontinvntality, or mannerism, bo often
observable in young ladies.'
birtn and death-.?Birth and death
are alike blind and insensible. The first
two years leave almost nothing to memory.
Th<;n come only a few clusters for the memory.
Wo arc five or six years in the world
belore we have brain enough and never
enough to recfeive durable impressions.
Aod, looking the other way, by far the
greatest number of people die without apparent
pain, without, mental sensiblity?
apparently as little conscious of failing lifo
a* flowers are of the loss of their petals,
wben ripeness plucks them one by one.
