Without them the bottom would Tall out, and society would become a chaos again. ', The press makes people patriotic, the pulpit religious, but women sway all things. There would be no going to church if there were no girls there, neither would there be any going to war were the soldiers to meet with no ap plause but from the masculines. Withou- the sunshine shed ' by women, the rose of affection : would never , grow, nor the Ubwers of eloquence germinate. In short, she is the engine of life; the great motive power of love, valor, and civiliza tion. In proof of this, truth in all historv speaks trumpet-totigued. . , ; , JS The wrather indicates rain. .

' All sorts of lady fixens thrill my feelings as they'd orter, . . , . C- Sat little female gaiter boots are death, and nothing shorter. ... But just to pat yeu on your guard, I'll give you, short snd brief, A small hotel experience Which filled my heart with grief Last summer, at the Clarendon, " I stopped a week or more, And marked two ''boot'iea' every morn Before my neighbor's door - Two boots with patent leather tips Two boots which seemed to say, An angel trots around inns ' They stole my heart away! I 9aw the servant take 'em off! With those of other bz-utes, His soul was all in sixpences, But mine was in the boots. . . And often in my nightly dreams They swept before my face, A lady growing out of "iheju - - As flowers from avas?. ' But, ah! one morn I saw a siht Which struck me like a atone; Some other name was on ths books Those boots were not alone! A great tall pair of olher boots Were standing by their side! And off they walked that afternoon, And with them walked a bride! Enough, enough, my song is sung, Love's tree bears bitter fruits; Ee ware of beauty reader, mind, But, oh! beware of boots! LITTLE THINGS. Scorn not the slightest word or deed, Nor deem it void of power, There's fruit in each wind-wafted seed, Waiting its nctal bower. A whispered word may touch the heart, And call it back to life; 1 A look of love bid sin depart, And still unholy strife. No act falls fruitless; none can tell How vast its powers may be, Nor what results unfolded dwell Within it silently. Work and despaia.not; give thy mite, Nor care how small it be; God is with all that serve the right, The holy, true, and free. itttfOUS. Woman. As the dove will clap its wings on its side, and cover and conceal the arrow that is pra)ing on its vitals, so the nature of woman hides from the world the pangs of wounded affection. With her, the desire of the heart has failed. The great charm of existence is at an end. She neglects all the cheerful exercises that gladden the spirits, quicken the pulse, and send the tide oflife in healthful currents through their veins. Her rest is broken, the gweet refreshment of sleep is poisoned by melancholy dreams, " dry sorrow drinks her blood, until her enfeebled frame sinks under thejast external assailant." Look for her after a little while, and yon find friend ship weeping over her untimely grave, and wondering that one, who but lately glowed with all the radiance of health and beamy should now be brought down to " darkness and the worm." You will be told of some wintry chill, some light indisposition that laid her low, but no one knows the mental malady that previously sapped her strength and made her so easy a prey to the spoiler. Tur Farmer. We often think, with a feeling approaching envy, of the men who drive the plow and conduct the various agricultural operations of the farmer's hon orable vocation. The bone and sinew of our country are the farmers. Our yeo manry may le considered among the wor thiest of men. It has beeome proverbial to refer to the agriculturalist's avocation as one calculated to exert a most favorable influence toward strengthening morality and integrity. Some of the best patriots of bj'-gone times were "honest farmers" 'Tillers of the ground Availing to. which most severe Labor attaches; but makes sound Th 3 body, and it schools the mind la honest pui poses; and w here - Men till their own loved lands, we find A noble yeomanry, w ho are Th'? firmest pillars of the State, The purest patriots of the land, , The stronghold of religion thegreat In all that can respect command." Sentiments of "Printers. At the printers's festival recently held at Man chester, JN". II., the following sentiments were offered.

A vert old Sermon. Rev. Dr. Cooke, of Lynn, Mass., gave his people, as an af ternoon discourse, on Sunday, January 21, a sermon which was preached on the same day of the same month in 16-5-5 just two hundred years before before the same so ciety, by Rev. .Thomas Cobbett, who was then its pastor. The Lynn News says: " It was supposed but few recognised the sermon from having heard it when it was first delivered," : . ,V , . .

Well," he said, "Eng land is a very nice country, exceedingly fertile, well cultivated,, very ypulous, and very , jvealthy; but, contininued the Yankee, "I never like to take a morning walk after breakfast, because the country is so small that I was afraid of walking ofFthe'edge. . ; ' - J How to Prove A Lover. -In order to try your lover's affection for you, take an opportunity of dancing some evening continually with somebody else, or of oth erwise flirting, whilst in "the mean time you snub and slight him. If this conduct does not destroy his regard for you, he loves you indeed sineerely. Beautiful.. One pound of gold may be drawn into a wire that,, would extend round the globe.
