THE COTTAGE DOOR.
How sweet the rf-.t that labor vieldd The humble and the poor, Wh.'re site the patriarch of the fields Before his cottage door. The lark is singing in the sky, The swallow on the eaves, And love is beaming in each eye Beneath the summer leaves' The air amid his fragrant bowers Supplies unpurchased health, And hearts are bounding 'mid the flowers, More dear to him than wealth. l'mec like the blessed sunlight, play. Around his humble cot, And happy nights and cheerfal day.. Divide his lowly lot. Oh. happy hearts, to him who still The ravens when they cry, Awd makes the lily 'neath the hill. So glorious to the eye The trusting patriarch prays to blehs His labors with increase; sNh ways are "ways of pleasantnea.,,' 4in 1 all such "paths are peace. The Game of lemory. The game of memory as practiced by the Ojibways and Northern In dians, has been found profitable, both for recreation and improve ment, as a branch of object teach ing. The Indian chief or teacher in his rude way, has from twenty to thirty or more sticks cut, made sharp or pointed at the larger end, and split at the top an inch or two. These sticks are then planted around in a circle, a short distance from each other; then various substances s:t single specimen on each stick at the top) are distributed around the; circle in order, beginning on the!! right hand of the teacher, and pro ceeding around in the order of numbers one, two, three, etc. The Indians, or class, are'then aUowed to go around the circle slowly and take a strict and scm tinizing look at each specimen in the order of the numbers one, two, three, and thus around the circle. This is done silently. The sticks, or specimens, are then removed and placed by the teacher, and then the Slass on going around a second time, each one in order, is to tell the teacher, as far as possible, with out mistake, what specimen is con tained in stick number one, two, three, four, five, and so around the whole circle if possible. With the Indians, the first speci nee n will probably be birch bark to make canoes, the second a little to bacco, the third the fur of a beaver, he fourth a bit of calico, the fifth a leather of a particular bird, the sixth ii." bone of some sort of fish, and so <.: different substances, in the dif rent sticks planted around the irele. The one who can repeat without mistake up to the highest II unber receives the premium or re a'trd. The consequence is the per e' ptive faculties are all called into exercise, and each individual will soon learn to discriminate so sharp ly that they will be able to track a w Af over dry leaves in the forests a- well as a white manecan track the on.me animal in the snow. You will ask how they can do it ? 1 reply that they do it very readily I y obseavation and sharp inspection by first noticing a leaf with holes in it., the middle hole, or holes, a trifle larger and in ad~vancC of the other hole, or holes, near the central! holes. These two holes they know1 by observation, were made by the toes of the wolf and they imimediatc vy stick down a leaf by this first leaf thus marked, andl sekrch for a se cond, end third and fourth, and so on, putting a stick at each leaf thus1 marked. By these sticks in a row they find where the animal drank at a spring pe'rhaps, and they soon discover his den among the rocks or caves near by. By this mode of sharp inspection they 1become acquainted with the habits of the wild animals, and also gain a knowledge of the different plants and trees, and turn their knowledge to good account for their individual welfare. The writer has known a scholar by practicing this exercise, who was enabled to memo rie a long lesson for a bible class, and at the recitation, without the book, repeat it backward as well as forward, or give any particular verse called for ; and he trusts that it may be made available in our common schools as a recreative and popular branch of cbject teaching. - A short time since, an officer who was sent to sumnmon a Mrs. Thayer, alias Burnett, to attend court, made a return that he had summoned Mrs. Thayer, but "Alias Burnett" eould not he found in his -aeict' Fun and Fancy. -A destist at work in his voca tion always looks down in the mouth. -Dogs are said to "speak. with their tails." Would it be proper to call a short tailed dog a stump orator ? -A man named Brown has been arrested at Galena on a charge of bigamy. "He loved not wisely, but two welL" -An officer being intoxicated, an old soldier observed that he was afraid there was something wrong at head quarters.. -Some descendant of Solomon has wisely remarked, that those who go to law for damages are sure to get them ! -The editor who kissed his sweet heart, saying, "Please exchange," it believed not to have exceeded the proper liberty of the press." -An Irish jockey elated with his success at winning a race, observed, "By my shoul, I'm first at last ; I've always been behind before." -"I do declare Sal, you dew look pretty enough to eat." "Wall, Salomon, aint I eating as fast as I can," replied Sal, with her mouth full. -A runaway thief having ap plied for work to a blacksmith, the latter showed him some handcuffs, and desired to know if he ever made any of them. "Why, yes, sir," said the other scratching his head, "I've had a hand in them." -"Doctor, mother sent me down to the shoticary pop quicker'n blazes, cos bub's sick with the picken chox, and she wants a thimbleful of poly golic in this din tiper, cos we hadn't bot a gottle, and the kint pup's got the bine witters in it-Got any ?" -Gordon Cumming, the great lion slayer, was telling Rogers, one day, how he once came unarmed, upon a huge lion. "Thinking to frighten him, I ran at him with allm my might," said the hunter. "Where upon," said Rogers, "he ran away with all his mane, I suppose ?" "Exactly so," said Cumming. -A domestic newly engaged pre sented his master with a pair of bcots, the leg of one of which was much longer than the other. "How comes it, that these boots are not of the same length ?" "I really don't know, sir ; but what bothers me most is, that the pair down stairs are in the same fix." -A Judge being challenged by a Senator, the following dialogue en shed : Senator--"Did you receive my note, sir !" "Judge-Yes, sir." "Well, do you intend to fight me ?" "No, sir." "Then, sir, I consider you a pitful coward." "Right sir ; you knew that well, or you never would have challenged me. -A gentleman, in his eagerness at the table to answer a call for some apple p~ie, owing to the knife I slipping on the bottom of the dish, found his knuckles buried in the crust, when a wag who sat opposite him, very gravely observed, whilst he held his plate, "Sir, I'll trouble on for a bit, while you hand is in." --There was a deacon in New Hampshire by the name of Day 'by trade a cooper. One Sunday, he: heard a number of boys playing in front of his house, and went to stop their Sabbath breaking. Assunming a grave countenance, he said to them, "Boys, do you know what day this is ?" "Yes, sir," imme diately replied one of the boys, "Deacon Day, the cooper !" -A sick man slightly convales-I cing, recently in conversation with a pious friend, congratulating him uipon his recovery, and asking him who his physician was, replied, "Dr.- brought me through." "No, no," said his friend. "God brought you eat of your illness, not the doctor." "Well," replied he, ."may be he did, but I am certain the doctor will charge me for it." -"My dear Amelia," said a dan dy, "I have long wished for this op portunity, but hardly dare speak now, for fear you will reject me ; but I love you ; say you will be mine ! Your smiles would shed," and then he came to a pause; "your smiles would shed," and then he paused again. "Never mind the wood-shed," "e plied Amelia, "go cn with thei pretty talk." RAILROADS.
