Women have done wonders in bringing down mighty men, and bringing up mise rable men. Samson was a strong man, and Solomon was a wise man, but women were too much for them. Jezebel was a bard case, fold did ihucli riuscliief. She was a regular bcelzebub of feminine gen der. She was a regular razor back, cut in-the-eye she wolf. Esther was a good woman and belonged to a persecuted and proscribed race. Hainan was a proud, arrogant and conceited man, and plotted great deeds of wickedness, but Esther outwitted him, and he was elevated at the end of a rope. Time and space forbid us enumerating cases ; we have all seen the workings of good and had women. The bad kind, we were never fond of, the good ones we love with all our soul. We have known men abandoned by society ns con firmed drunkards who were restored to virtue, health and happiness by the pow er of woman's love. We have known young men who were making rapid ad vances in the whirl of dissipation, saved by the magical power of woman's love.— AV ho has not heard of the reformation of William Wirt, a noble Virginian, Attorney ■ueneral under John Quincy Adams and James Munroe ? Wirt was a child of genius, a polished gentleman, an eloquent lawyer. Like too many of the gifted ones, he became a tippler, a drunkard, a sot 1 He loved a beautiful womun and proposed marriage. She was wise and good, one of the right sort, and plainly told Wirt he must either renounce her or renounce the bottle. A battle then began in Wirt’s breast. A depraved appetite began the tight with a.heayen born prin ciple. Hope now drooped and now re vived in the breasts of both. The woman loved him as only a pure-minded woman can love. Wirt struggled and fell, again tried and again fell. One day he lay at full-length, besotted and dead-drunk, on the sidewalk. His lady-love came along like an angel attendant and was shocked at the sight. She brushed away the Hies from his blistered face, and covering his features with her handkerchief, passed on her sad way. She was indeed a “ Lady Dasha way!” She was truer than steel ! By and by, poor Wirt awoke, saw her name on the handkerchief, and then and there vowed that he would drink no more. God helped and blessed him, out of weakness he was made strong, out of misery he was raised to honor, fame and happiness, and in due time they were married, and Wirt nflerwards became Attorney General of the United States of America. This shows what good women can do. They can, and do, work mira cles, with the Divine blessing going with them. Who can hear of woman's hero ism and devotedness, and goodness, with out loving and reverencing her character. May God bless them all forever and ever. - — Exchange. Tin? “Sii.vkk Rile.” — You ail know the golden rule—“ Do unto other as you would have them do unto you." Here is a rule that is almost a part of the golden rule, but which we will put by itscif, and because of its value, call it the “Silver Kule:” “Think and say all you can of the good qualities of others; forget and Keep silent concerning their bad qualities.” You can conceive how much such a course will heighten your own happiness, and raise you in the esteem of your friends. Did you ever think any more of a bov or girl, my young friends, because he or she found fault with others ? JJever call your schoolmates or playmates ugly or cross, neiDier before their faces nor behind their backs. If they are ugly, or stingy, or cross, it does not make them better to talk and think about it, while it makes you love to dwell upon the thoughts of others, and causes your own soul to grow smaller, and you become like the foul bird that prefers carrion for fowl. Rather tell ail the good you can and try to think of more. Love of a Wife. —Let the electric fin ger of love once touch the citadel of the soul, and the batteries of the universe may thunder before it in vain. Whether it be affection for an aged parent, a de formed offspring, or a friend in time of trouble, that one imperishable sentiment is superior to time. But there is a deep er, higher, still more enduring faith—the free will offering of a woman's heart Be the idol of her affections ever so un loveable, so lowly in life, so despised by the world, so mocked at by fortune, so tortured by the persecution of creditors or the law, she clings to him through evil and good report, and as fragments fall from the altar of home, she breathes the breath of purity and love on the scat tered embers and swears the oath of fidel ity—“ As God liveth, nought but death shall part me and^tfrfe.” As daylight can be seen through very snnrtl holes, so little things will illustrate a person’s character. Indeed, character consists in little acts, honorably perform ed; daily life being the quarry from which we build it up. Whm Socrates was ssked why he had built for himself so smalfa house, here plied ; “ Small as it is, I wish I could fill It with frienda" Fioer Avoided.—“&u area sot, sir." •* Hour a not f" “Yeaj’asot: and I say so." ... . “.Kl jou t h*o been the only one who Said so, I would demand satisfaction for such insolence; but you ought to know that F cannot fidht with everybody; I therefore treat it with contempt as a base calumny." } h*»-fW i« the mm dapwring ■ad paralysing of alt tba smlom, and at tbo aaa* time tba moat dangerous in ita reaction*. The moat dangerous man or animal is ooe whom fear baa driven to deep oration. The weakest animal will turn at bay, and fight desperately in ita eatremity. But the first effects of fear are to drive back the blood from the sur face, and produce paleness end a peculiar, pinched expression of the features. The limbs tremble, the power of speech is lost, and often there is a sudden stimulation of certain functions and organs. Fear has* been known in a single night to changtf the hair to a silvery whiteness, and to give the whole frame the aspect of primi tive old age. It has often been the cause of epilepsy, idiocy, and insanity. The powerful effects of fear have frequently been brought into play for the cure of diseases. We all know how the sight of a dentist's instruments will suspend the pangs of the toothache. Sir John Mal colm tells us of a Persian doctor who cured ague by the bastinado. Fear is a common cause of epilepsy ; yet, in a school where the disease became an epi demic, the great physician Boerhaave cured it entirely by threatening to burn, with a red-hot poker, the first boy that had another paroxysm. Terror has cured the goitre, a large wen of the neck ; and abscesses of considerable magnitude have been suddenly absorbed under the fear of an operation. Neuralgia of long standing has also disappeared from the same cause. Fear promotes the spreading of all conta gious or epidemic diseases, as has often been witnessed in the plague, cholera,Ac. The angel of pestilence went to a c eruitt city to slay twenty thousand, but a hun dred thousand pvrUhed. When charged with exceeding his commission, he said ** 1 killed my twenty thousand only ; fear killed the rest." After battles, men have been found dead without a wound. They were the victims of fear.— Sunday Timet. Appearances.—Upon the subject of dress and appearance, the New York thus remarks: A coat that has marks of age upon it, is a recommendation to people of sense; and a hat with too smooth a nap and too high a lustre, is a derogatory circumstance. The fine coats on Broadway are on the backs of penni less, broken down merchants, clerks with pitiful salaries, and men that don't pay up. The heaviest gold chains dangle from the fof*s of gamblers and gentlemen of very limited means; costly ornaments on ladies indicate to eves that are well open, a silly lover, or a husband cramped for funds. And when a pretty woman goes hy in plain and neat apparel, it is a sign that she has fair expectations, and a husband that can show a balance in his favor. To the Downhearted.—Says an ex change : Come, now, be cheerful; if you cannot pay your debts immediately, do the best you can, and pay them as you are able. “Care killed a cat." If you have not fifty cents to luxuriate upon the delicacies of the season, appropriate half the amount for something more substan tial and wholesome. Kiss your wife, if you have one; if not, kiss some pretty girl and marry her immediately—for acts of desperation frequently result happily. If you have children, romp with them; if you have none, romp with your neigh bors’. Look upon the bright side of ev erything—put on a cheerful countenance —keep your mind in the right trim, and if you find that your native town does not support you, pack up and go to another. At all events, be cheerful. Tiie impenetrability of the rhinoceros’ hide is stated by recent English hunters to he a fable, which arose solely from the fact that walking-sticks and whip-stocks as hard as horn are prepared from it by a tedious process among the natives of coun tries w hich the animal inhabits. A com mon buckshot will in reality go through the hide with perfect case. The same in vulnerability has been asserted of the al ligator, and it has been disproved by killing the monster with a charge of bird shot fired into his right side, through the heart. The eye and the vent are always mentioned as his only vulnerable spots. The dashing foreman of a fashionable tailoring establishment, being in a mixed company, wished to impress those present with the immense importance of his ser vices to his employers. “ Though I say it that should not say it," said he, “if it were not for me our people could not carry on their business." “ I can very well believe you,” put in one of the party ; “ I never heard of a tailor who could car ry on his business without a goose.” -4 » »■ . A Valuable Protection.—The Scien tific American describes a breastplate which, it is said, is being extensively worn by the officers and men in the army. It is composed of thin spring steel, and is worn between the cloth and lining of a [ common military vest. It has two leaves, which lap at the edges when the vest is buttoned, so as to cover the entire chest. It weighs only three pounds and a-half, and can be worn with ease by any officer or soldier during the most active exercise. It is very strong in proportion to its weight, as it can resist'the thrust or a bayonet or sword, and it will repel Iho bullets of muskets and pistols at ranges which would otherwise be fatal to life. “ These 'ere clerks," said Mrs. Winter blossom, “ are a lectle too smart. I went into a sto.e yesterday, where all the fix ins was painted blue, and asked for some silk. ‘What color, main ?’ asked the young counter-hopper. ‘ Why,’ says I— ‘about the color of your drawers.’ •My drawers I says he, • why, I left ’em off last Monday,’ and then he grinned just as if he didn'i know what I meant." An Indian complained to a retailer that the price of liquor was too high. The latter said it cost as much -to keep a hogs head as it did to keep a cow. The Indian replied—“ May be he drink as much wa ter, but he no eat as much hay.” Mbs. Dubois, in describing an insane tom-cat, says: He dashed und :r the bed, where he converted his eyes into two balls of phosphorus, his tail into a Bologna sausage, while his voice assumed an “un earthliness" that reminded her of the old scratch himself. She got him out of the house by shooting him with the slop-pail. “Lor', sir, them as about hequal ity don’t know nr thin’ about it,” said the driver. “ ’Spose w c were all equal at this here minute—why we’d be just like old Rhobe s cows—a grazing, all on us would get a good feed, and, j,«st as we’d done, some precious thief or other would quietly drop in and milk us!” A Gentleman entered a shop in which vegetables were kept for sale, and inquired of the proprietor if he had any onions. “ Onions, onions,” repeated the puzzled vegetable dealer, “ onions 1 no, sir, I be lieve not” After the gentleman had gone, the per plexed vegetable dealer BcratchedhiiTisnr for a moment, and then as if struck with a sudden solution of the mystery, he ex claimed—l wonder if the darned, eter nal, ignorant fool didn’t mean inyens I” A friend of ours, carrying home a sheep’s heart and pluck, the, other day, was accosted by a bit of a wag; " Hallo, my good, whole-souled friend, how do you dol” “ Sir, you have the advantage of mo," was the mild reply, “ Perhaps I have, but I didn’t meaft to take it No, sir; I never take advantage of a man who carries bis heart in his hand," rejoined the wag. J IWwlm m W Mfwm W ■■»*! The popular idea of loldiera in a bayo net charge struggling hand to hand and face to bee, with fixed bayonet*, in likely to be exploded, like many other delusions. We find, (aye an exchange, by referring to “Gullirie'e Commentaries on Army Surgery,” that these struggle* nerer oc cur. VVe quote that eminent authority: A great delusion is cherished in Great Britain on the subject of the bayonet—a sort of monomania very gratifying to the national vanity, but not quite in accord ance with matter of fact Opposing reg iments, when formed in line, aud charg ing with fixed bayonets, never meet and struggle hand to hand and foot to foot, and this for the very best possible reason, that one side turns round and runs away as soon as the other comes close enough to do mischief; doubtless considering that discretion is the better part of valor. Small parties of men may bare person al conflicts after an affair has been deci ded, or in tbe subsequent scuffle, if they cannot get out of the way fast enough.— The battle of Maida is usually referred to as a remarkable instance of a bayonet fight; nevertheless, the sufferers, whether killed or wounded, French or English, suffered from bullets, not bayonets. The late Sir James Keinp commanded the brigade supposed to have done this feat, but h« has assured us that no charge with the bayonet took place, the French being killed in line by the fire of musketry; a fact which of late received a remarkable confirmation in the published correspon dence of King Joseph Bonaparte,in which Gen. Rrgnier, writing to him on the sub ject, says: “The First and Forty-second Regiments charged with the bayonet until they cainc within fifteen paces of the enemv, when they turned' (t pririent la fruile. The. second line compose of Polish troops, had already done the same.” Wounds from bayonets were not less rare in the Peninsular war. It inay be that all those that were bnyonetted were killed, yet their bodies were never found. A certain fighting regiment had the mis fortune, one very misty morning, to have a large number of men carried off by a charge of Polish Lancers, many being also killed. The commanding officer con cluded they must all have been killed, for his men possessed exactly the same spirit as a part of the French Imperial Guard ajt Waterloo. " They might he killed, but they could not by any possibility be taken prisoners.” He returned them all dead accordingly. A few days afterward they reappeared, to the astonishment of every body, having been swept ofT by the caval ry, and had made their escape in the retreat of the French army through the woods. The regiment from that day ob tained the ludicrous name of “ The Res urrection Men." The siege of Sevastopol furnished many opportunities for partial hand-to-hand bayonet contests, in which many were killed and wounded on all sides, but I do not learn that in any-engagements which took place, regiments advanced against each other in line and really crossed bay onets as a body, although the individual bravery of smalleP parties was frequently manifested there as weil as in the war of the Peninsula. A Model Ckiek. —An old paper, turned up in a general cleaning up, contains the following: In a beautiful town of North Carolina, an old court-crier, who had grown gray in the cause, and as deaf as a beetle, was in the hnbit of calling the names of wit nesses (which he generally managed to get wrong) from the second storv window ol the court house, in such a stentorian voice as to be heard with distinctness a square or more. On one occasion, in the course of a very serious and somewhat important suit, the presence of a witness, named Arabella Hanks, was needed. The crier, like a parrot, sat nodding on his perch, when he was aroused from his slumber by an order from the Court to call the witness. Looking anxiously at the Judge, with his hand behind his ear, in order to catch the sound correctly, he said: , “ What, your Honor ?" “ Call Arabella Hanks,” said the Judge. Still in doubt, the poor crier rose from his scat, and said again, with a much puzzled look: “ What, your honor?" “Call Arabella Hanks, crier, and delay the business of the Court no longer,” said the Judge, much provoked. The old crier, thereupon, with a coun tenance indicating both doubts and des peration, proceeded to the window, and in his loudest voice called out: “ YalUr Belly Shanks! Yaller Belly Shanks I Yaller Belly Shanks! come into court!" It is needless to say that the serious ness of the Court-room was convulsively dispelled; and quiet was restored only to he again disturbed by tbe laughter caused by the crier, who in answer to the Court as to whether or not the witness answer ed, said : “ No, your Honor; and I don’t believe there is such a person in the coun ty, for I've lived here forty years, and I never he'trd of him before* I" ■ **■ ■ —-^T Not Gkeat Enough.—Frederick the Great is reported to have said, in refer ence to a troublesome assailant: “ This man wants me to make a martyr of him, but he shall not have that satisfaction." Vespasion told Demetrius, the Cynic, “ You do all you can to get me to put you to death, but I do not kill a dog for bark ing at me.” This Demetrius was a man of real spirit and honesty. When Caligula tried to conciliate his good word by a large gift in money, he sent it back with the message: “If you wish to bribe me, you must send me your crown.” George the Third ironically asked an eminent divine, who was just returned from Rome, whether he had converted the Pope. "No, sire, I had nothing better to otfer him." Conclusion of a Uakd Shell Session. —“ My brethren and sisters! ef a man is full of religion you can’t hurt him! There was the three Arabian children ; they put ’em in the fiery furnace, hotter, seven time hotter, than it could be het, and it didn’t singe a har on one of their heads! And there was John, the Evangeler; they put him—and where do you think they put him, brethren and sisters? Why, they put him into a culndronic of bilin’ ley, and they biled him all night, and it didn t faze his shell! And there was Dan’el, they put him into a lion’s den— and what, my fellow-travelers and respect ed auditors, do you think he was put in a lion’s den for ? Why, for praying three times a day. Don’t be alarmed, brethren and sistren; I don’t think any of you will ever get into a lion’s den.” Little Things.—Ten minutes tsken from five hours seems a very small affair, and yet for a workman to be behind ten minutes every fore and afternoon, de frauds his employer out of two hours a week, or nearly ten and a half days in a yea?- At t'i per day, this would amount -«tf»3o per year.-practically stolen, and often by men so conscientious that they would deem it a sin to take an apple from a neighbor's orchard without permission. How hard it is to come up to the Golden Rule: All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them. And who wonders that this requisition was called the " straight gate,” into which men were exhorted to enter, and which, it was said, few men would be able to find. ? Tns road that ambition travels in is too narrow for friendship,too crooked for iqve, too rugged for honesty, sod tpq dark for science.
