The noblest men I know on earth, Are men whose hands are brown with toll ; Who, backed by no ancestral graves, Hew down the woods and till the toll; , And win thereby a prouder fame Than follows king or warrior's name. The worktogmen, whate'er their task, To carve the stone or bear the bod They wear upon thsjr honest brows The'fdjal stamp and seal of God; ", 'An4"brigMer1irA theft-drops of sweat J"'' Than diamonds In a coronet. v God bless the noble worklngmen, Who rear the cities of the plain, Who dig the mines and build the ships, And drlre the commerce of the main ; Ood bless them, for their swarthy hands Hare wrought the glory of all lands. THE AMERICAN FLAG. At this juncture in our national troubles, when the flag of the Union is being treated with contumely, and thrown nside to giro place to those that were used in the days of onr colonial vassalage, the following extract from the speech of Mr, Poinsett, delivered nt Charleston, South Carolina, during the nullification excitement, will be perused with pleasuro by all friends of the Union: " Wherever I have been, I hove been proud of being a citizen of this Republic, and to tho remotest corner of the earth have .walked erect and secure under the banner which our opponents would tear down and trample under foot. I was in Mexico when tho town was taken by assault. The house of the American Am bassador was then, ns it ought to be, tho refuge of the distressed and persecuted ; it was pointed out to tho infuriated soldiery ns n place fillet! with their enemies. They rushed to tho attack. My only defenco was the flag of my country, and it was flung out at the instant that hun dreds of muskets were levelled at us. Mr. Mason (a braver man never stood by his friend in the hour of danger) and myself placed our selves beneath its waving folds, nnd the at tack was suspended. We did not blench, for wo felt strong in the protecting nrm of this mighty Republic. Wo told them thnt the flag that waved over us was the banner of that na tion to whose example they owned their liber ties, and to whoso protection they were indebted for their safety. The scene changed ns by en chantment ; tnose men who were on the point of attacking and massacreing the inhabitants, cheered the Hag of onr country, and placed sen tinels to protect it from outrage." " Fellow citizens, in such a moment as that, would it have been any protection to me and mine to have proclaimed myself a Carolinian ? SnODDD I HAVE BEEN HERE TO TELL TOD THIS TALE, IF I HAD HONO OUT TnB PALMETTO AND SitiOLE Star? Be assured that, to be respected abroad, we must maintain our place in the Unions Ohey your Wife. Three iovinj follows Tom Watson, Joe Brown, and Bill Walker sat late at the village tavern, nnd in the merri ment of their hearts made an arrangement that the " shot " should be paid by him who omit ted to do tho first thing his wife told him on returning home. They then separated for the night, engaging to meet again next morning, and make an honest report. Noxt morning, Walker and Brown were early at their posts, but it was some time before Watson made his appearance. Walker began first " You see, when I entered my house the candle was out, and as the fire gave but a glimmering of light, I was near walking into n pot of batter that the crumpets were to be made of this morning. My wife, dreadfuly out of humor at sitting up so long, said to me, sarcastically, ' Do put your foot in the batter 1 ' Just as you say, Maggy,' said I, and without tho least hesitation I set my foot in the batter, and then went to bed." Next Joe Brown told his story "My wife had already retired to rent in our sleeping room, which adjoins the kitchen, and the door of which was ajar. Not being able to navigate perfectly well, I made a dreadful clattering among the household furniture, and in no vert pleasant tone she bawled out ' Do break the Sorridge pot, Jool' No sooner said than one. I seized bold of tho pot, und, striking it against tho chimney jamb, broke it in n hun dred pieces. After this exploit I retired to rest, nnd got n curtain lecture for my pains." It was now Tom Watson's turn to give an account of himself, which ho did with a very long face as follows " My wife gave ma the mot nil lucky command in tho world ; for, as I was blundering up stairs in the dark, slio cried out. ' Do break vour neck ; do, Torn I ' ' I'll be cursed if I do, Kate,' said I, as I gathered my self up; 'I'll sooner pay the bill.' And so, landlord, here's the casn for you. This is the last time that ever I'll risk a sovereign on tho command of my wife." Another Alleged DiacoEHY ok Men with Tails. For tho thousandth time since tho days of Pliny( tho story of tho existence of a race of men with tails, has again been Bet afloat. A Dutch journal, the Verceniging Christelyke ktcnimen for September, contains a lengthy account of the native population of Borneo. The writer asserts thnt tho Poonangs, a race inhabiting largo tracts of tho interior of tho island, aro all adorned with tails, A Mr. Von Hontrop, while in tho Borneo piovinco recently, saw aud examined three of these Poonangs. lie came to tho conclusion that their caudal appendages, which aro described as from two to fito inches in length, bnrd, stiff, nnd nearly immovable, aro neither it natural deformity, nor the result of disouso, but a gen uine and general characteristic of the race. Some aro to bo caught and sent to Hollaud. G. W.

LADD, WEBSTER, & CO.'S IMPROVED TIGHT-STITCH SEWING MACHINES. A few of the many reasons why these Sewing Machines are preferred above all others. 1. They are remarkably simple In their con struction. A child ran operate them, and understand the mechanism. 2. They are the strongest Sewing Machine made. It Is almost Impossible to break or get them out of order. 3. They are sure In their operation; finishing the work In a uniformly perfect manner. 4. They make a tight lock-stitch, alike on both sides of tho work, which cannot be unravelled 5. They d(cA, hem, bind, fell, run, and gather, without basting, 6 They sew equally Veil the lightest and the heaviest fabrics. 7. They sew over the heavieit seams without changing the tension or breaking the finest thread. 8. They use any No. of Cotton, Thread, or Silk, directly from tho spool. 0. They use a straight needle; enrved ones aro liable to break. 10. The needle has a perpendicular motion. This Is absolutely necessary lor heavy work. 11 They have a wheel feed; none others are In constant contact with the work. 12. They run easily and almost noiseless. U. They are not liable to oil the dress of the operator. 14. They do not require a screw-drlrer to set the needle. 15. They do not have to be taken apart to oil or clean. 10. They do not form ridges on the under side of the work, nor ravel out, nor are they waste ful of thread, as is the case with all chain-stitch machines, 17. They aro capable of doing greater range of work, and in a more perfect manner, than any other Sewing Machine, as Is proved by the result of our challenge for a trial, which has never been accepted.
