Yes that is the question I The fnct is, there seems to he no place iu heaven nbove, or earth beneaih, exuctly Rufe and suit n Ijle, except thu bed. While he if Ht-lerp, then nur-souls have resl we know where he is and what he is about, and sleep i- a prncioiiK state ; but when he wakef up brigliht and early, a begins tool iiiir, pound- ny, Uitmniiriiig, siiiginjr, tuedJIiufr;, - and asking questions; in short, overturning the pence of society generally for about tliir teeu hours out of every I weuty-four. . ' Everybody wants to know' what to do with liiin everybody is quite sure that he eiiti'l i-tny where they are. The cook can't httve him in the kitchen, where he infests the pantry to get flour to make paste for hi kites, or melt lard in the new suuce-pnn. If he goes into the wood shed, he is sure to pull the wood-pile down upon his head. If he be sent up to tlie garret, you think for a while that you have settled the problem, till yon find what n boundless field for ac tivity is at ouee opened, amid all the pack ages, boxes, bags, barrels, and east-off rub birh there. Old letters, ncwtipniicrs, trunks of miscellaneous contents, are all rummaged, and the very reign of chaos and old night is instituted. lie sees endless capacities in nil, ana liu is always hammering something or knocking something apart, or sawing or planing, or drawing boxes and barrels in all direction to build cities or Ibv railroad tracks, till every bodv's head aches nnite down the the lower floor, and everybody de clines tliui Charley must be kept out of the garret. Then yon send Charley to school, end hope you are fuirly rid of him for a few hours at leust. But he conies home noisier and more breezy than ever, having learned of some twenty other Charleys every sepa rate resource for keeping up a commotion mat tue 8tiH-ratiuii(Jant vitality of each can originate. He can dance like Jim Smith he has learned to smack his lips like Joe Brown and Will Briggs has shown hira how to mew like a cat, and he enters the premi.-es with a new war-whoop, learned from Tom Evans. lie feels large and val oroits; he hua learned that he is a boy, and Las a general impression that be is growing immensely strong and knowing, ard despises more thau ever the conventionalities of par lor life; in fact, he is more tbun ever an interruption in tho way of decent folks who want to be quiet. It is true, that if entertaining persons will devote themselves exclusively to hira, reading and telling stories, lie may be kept quiet; but then this is discouraging work, for he swallows a st ry as Hover does a piece of meat, and lot.ks at yon for another UDd another, without the slightest consider ation, so that thin resource ia of short du ration, and lien the old question comes back, what is to be done with him ? But after all, Charley cannot be wholly shirked, for he is an ius-t tuition a solemn m awful factt Blld OU the answer tO the . i i . i ... a j question, what is to be aoue with him ? de- peiius a luture. Many a hard, morose, bitter man has eome front a Charley turned off and neg lected ; many a parental heart-ache has came from a Charity left to run the streets, ibat ruiina and simers might play Oa the pit n and write letters in peace. It is easy to get rid of hiui; there are fifty ways of doing that. He is a spirit that can be promptly laid, but if not laid aright will come btick, by-and by, a atroug wan arm ed, when you eauuot seud biui off at plea sure. Mama and shsters had better pay a little a lu CUeh than a terrible oue by- f "7.- l,,f0lU,0'ntflhine?',i'i'jc-''i the old English phrase, with which our bcriptures reuder us familiar, a tuN-child MAK-child. Tbera too. bar tb word that should make you think mnr than twice before you answer the question. "What shall we do with Charley 7" For to-day he is at your feet; to-day tou can make him latigh, yon can make him cry, yon ran persuade, conx, and turn him to your pleasure; yon can make hia eyes fill and his bosom swell with recitals of good and noble deeds; in short, you can mould him if you will take the trouble. But look ahead some years, when that little voice shall ring in deep bass tones; when that small foot shall have a man's weight and trump; whm a rough beard shall cover that little, round chin, and all the willful strength of manhood Till out that little form. Then you would give worlds fot the key to his heart, to be able to turn and guide him tp your will; but if you lose that key now he is little, you may search for it carefully, with tears some other day, and mrer find it. i Old housekeepers have n proverb, that one hour lost in the morning is never found .all day. It has a significance iu this case. ; One thing is to I e noticed about Char ley, that, rudo and busy and noisy as he is. and irksome as carpet rules and parlor ways are to him, he is still a social lit tie creatin e ana wants to be where the rest of the honsehold are. A room ever so well adap ted for play, cannot charm him at the hour when the family is in reunion;. he hears the voices in the parlor and his play-room seems desolate. It may be warmed by a furnace and lighted with gns, but it i U fjirin warmth and light he shivers for; he yearns for the talk of the family, which he so imperfectly comprehends, and he longs to take his playthings down and play by you, and is incessantly promising that of the fifty improper things which he is liable to do in the parlor, he will not commit one if ton w ill let him stay there. . This instinct of the little one is Nature's warning plea God's admonition. 0, how many a mother who has neglected it be cause it was irksome to have the child a bout, has longed at twenty-five to keep her son by her sitle, and he would not. Shut out as a li tie Arab; constantly told that h is noisy, that he is awkward and meddle some, nnd a plague in general, the boy has found at last his own company in the strtets, in the highways and hedges, where he runs till the day comes when the parents want their son, and the sisters their broth er, aud then they are scared at the face he brings back to them, as he comes all foul and smutty from the compnaionsltip to which they have doomed him. Depend upon it, it it is too much trouble to keep your boy in your society, there- will be pla ces found for him warmed and lighted witd no Inendly fires, where he who finds some mischief still for idle hands to do, will care for him, if you do not. You may put out a tree and it will grow while you sleep, but a son you cannot you must take trouble for him, either a little now or- a great deal by-and-by. Let him stay with you at least some por tion of every day; bear his noise and his ignorant ways. Put aside your book or work to tell him a story, or show him a picture; devise still parlor plays for him. for he gains nothing by being allowed to spoil the comfort of the whole circle. A poncil, n sheet of paper, and a few patterns will sometimes keep him quiet by you for an hour while you are talking,' or in a comer he may build a block-house, an noying nobody. . If he does uow aud then disturb you, and it costs you more thought and care to regulate him there.' balance which is the greatest evil to be disturbed by him now, or w hen he is a man. Of nil you can give your Charier, if you are a good man or woman, your presence is the best and safest thing. God never meant him to do without you any more than chickens were meant to grow with out being brooded.' I lien let bun have some place in your house where it shall I e no sin to hammer and pound, and make all the litter his heart desires, and his various schemes require. Even if you can ill afford the room, weigh well between that safe anvlura' and one which, if denied, he may make for himself in the street. c Ot all devices for Charley which we ve, a lew shelves which he may dignify with the nnine of a cabinet, is oue of the best. He picks up shells and pebbles and stones, all odds and ecds. notbintr comes amiss; and if you give him a pair of scis sors aud a lit tle gum, there is no end of the labels he will paste on, and the hours he may innocently spend sorting and arrang ing. A bottle of liquid gum is an invaluable resource tor various purposes, uor must you mind though he varnish his nose and fingers and clothes, .(which he will do of eonrse) if he doeR nothing. A cheap paint box, ami some engravings to color, is ano ther; and if you will give him some real paint ami putty to paint nnd putty his boats and curs, be is a made man. " All these things make trouble to be sore they do but Charley is to make trouble, that is the nature of the institu tion, yoo are only to choose between safe and wholesome trouble, and the trouble that comes at last like a whirlwind: God bless the little fellow, and send us all grace to to of H.

" Mother watch the little feet Rounding through the busy street, Never count the momenta lost, Never mind the time it costs, Nor dure the question ask, " Why to uie Uiia weary tok 1 " " . Motbr, mother," said an eager little voice, "wont you tell us a story 1 A true story, such as cousin Maggie told Billy and me, whet) she was here." " Oh I please do mamma," cried another lit.tle fellow, 41 tell us about Motes in the Bulrushes, or about Joseph, who was sold by his brothers," and he clapped ha hands for joy, in anticipation of the expected tale, aud in their eagerness they pressed closely to their gaily dressed young mother. " Go away children, "dont trouble me, you will soil my dress." Was there ever a mother so perplexed by her young ones t But seeing" a shadow of dis appointment creeping over eir young " " faces', she half relented her apparent harsh ness, gave each a kiss, and said "I cannot gratify j(ou to-night, ome other time." (Thot tieglcct of duty, that some other time, that has cost us all so much remorse.) "I am going to Miss C.'s, Lucy may teach you, how to use your board, and men, that papa brought you, the other day." Quietly a sadly, the rtisnppointed little ones.who had entered their mothers' room, hut a moment before, flushed with hope and anticipation, retreated iu pursuit of a hireling, who was to take the place of that thoughtless moth er, in whoso hands God hail placed these young immortal minds, to be trained for usefulness here, and fitted for eternity. Why T did not some good angel whisper to that mother, as she was whirling through me gitioy uance mat, ner children were learning lesson", that would have an influ ence upon their whole future. They were becoming interested in things that would yet prove a curse to both, parents and chil dren. Nimble little finjrers soon learned to IL 1J J .1 . 1 .... use those painted pieces of wood, dexter - on!y' Those active enmiirinir minds d .n . , i i , . wcl asbnsy hands must have something to uo, anu eageriy mey entered into their new amusement furnished by father, and so must be right. Oh I that we possessed the implicit faith of childhood, in our heavenly parent games of chance, in preference to the true and beautiful tales of sacred bis- tory, which their young minds longed to hear explained. Who can tell if that moth er had but prasticcd self-denial, but for one evening, arid gratified their childish curiosi ty, but thatshe might have impressed opori their elastic minds noble sentiments, that would have guided them in a different path through life, and saved her such dreary night watchings, and days of almost hope less suspense. . There wa9 no more pleading for stories, and she who had the care of them, was commended, because they were so quiet and orderly, and didn't disturb mamma any more " for something to do." That moth er never dreaming, there would come a time, she would give all she possessed for this precious opportunity, of guiding their young feet, and forming their habits aright. In that home, where habits of industry and usefulness should have been formed, and their duty to themselves and others learned, was implanted a taste , for those exciting games, (all innocent in themselves, ) the continoed practfeoof which, has brought so much desolation to many a happy fire side. My brain grows weary, and my pen falters, thiuking of the many bright hopes crushed, and prospects Wighted by this in satiable love of "ga.mea of hazard." Go with me again to that once happy home. Look at those prematurely old pa rents, they are bowed with a grief, such as parents only feel for wayward, erring chil dren. 'Where are now those promising young sons, who should be as staffs and comforters to those fond parents, in their declining years ? how they had doated npon them, what plans they had formed for fu ture family aggrandizment. Left in youth seek amusement from home, (that home that should have been made briirht. beau tiful and attractive,) chasing their own associates already adepts at play, they soon became familiar with those older, and more hardeued in sin, who induced them go to these accursed places of resort, where vice is presented in its most alluring form. The same oft told tale, playing for amuscmeut, then persuaded to risk just a little, then a little more, uutil all is staked and lost. Madened, by repeated losses, tbey drinks, for the tempter ever stands near with the exciting glass, to take advantage these poor deluded victims. Step by step, they continued in their downward course, night after night, the wretched father sought, and found them in the low est dens of infumy, (for their means were too limited now,-to visit more fashionable places,) and took them back to that moth er, who waited in hopeless anguish; la vain now, society sought to allure her, the mother was roused, and bitterly she repen ted her past folly, and neglect of duty. Finally, the eldest, in n fit of desperation wanting wherewith to gratify his passion for play, jolued with hoase-breakcrs and thieves, but being a novice he was caught, while the older aud more hardened villains escaped, with tbe spoils. And be now lan guishes in ft prison. All that wealth and In fluence could do, was doue, but justice must take its course. The other is an out casta wanderer, and will soon fill a druuk ard's grave. And the cry coutiuually goes op from those heartbroken parents, oh my sons 1 my sons I would to God I had died for thee." Let us take a warning, and endeavor so to instruct, and guide the little ones, en trusted to onr care,hat when we shu! be called to come up hither, we can truly say Lord, here am I, and tbe children thou gavest me," and receive the welcome plau dit " well done, good and faithful servant." j ' ; I . in ft, of be in America in Hysterics.

Mr. Bell Released. , Horace Bell, th kidnapped In jianian, was released on bail, aud bis return to New Albany was the occasion of quite a de monstration.

Thin caused a general alarm, ringing of bells, Sic. The squad of eighteen made a descent on the town, visited the jail, and found that Bell had been hurried iuto the country for con cealment. The merchants and citizens bad carried away their goods supposing that the lndiaiiiaus, who they heard were com ing five hundred strong, would burn the tow ii. The squad of eighteen crossed to the ferry beat in 6kiffs, and reported, and u committee was appointed to coufer with the people of Brandenburg and make a de mand for Bell.. A town meeting was call ed, the question of rendition discussed for three hours, nnd fiually articles of agree ment were adopted as follows: , " The iuvadiug army was to be removed; Horace Bell was to be brought into towu aud have an immediate examination, and if he was not discharged his bail was to be fixed nt a rery. small Sum, which the citizen In the vicinity should give and finally all the citizens In Brandenburg sho'd sign a petition to Gov.

The ferry bant and volunteers returned to New Albany, Bell was brought back to Brandenburg, let to bail as per agreement, and the border war closed without blood shed.

You have now arrived at an age when yon must begin to think about doing something for yourselves. The first piece of advice I have for you is do every thing well which yon nudertake. Thero is but little danger of your being too particu lar in this respect. A boy who is careful to draw a straight liue on his slate; , Will xbe very likely to make a straight liue through life. There is no position in life in which you will not be called upon to be exact as possible.

It is the disposition to avoid ult solid im provement, and take np with subjects that require uo thought, end which serve as mere excitement to the mind. . Youf older friends tell you that fust boys never make solid and useful men. Very few of them live to bo forty years old. Nobody ever trusts them. They never Ell any important office or fetation. They usually become small men, because they have no capital in their heads with which lo work out a living. Out of fifty of that class, I do not know of one who ever accomplished mnch. Uncle Joshua. Experience of a Grain Speculator. Generally speaking, wheat is a very good grain. It shows well in tbe field and in statistical reports; it looks well in stacks, and especially well iu granaries; and when well-ground, melho jicully kneaded, judi ciously baked, and properly browned and buttered into todst, there is no one who will speak more respectfully, not to say en thusiastically, of thu vegetable than I will. For 1 am, iu the main, a nittn too well-bred to do otherwise. But ns an article ot com merce, a medium for speculation, I am em phatically down ou tbe whoie institution, both "Winter" aud "Spring;" the one has proveu "the winter of my discontent," while the other has "sprung" a trap ou me like that projected over nuwary birds which nib ble at the same bait. These remaika may seem severe, but they drop ns naturally from me as the kernels would from a head of wheat that has been well threshed. A everybody knows, I am "the sou of poor but respectable parents." I started iu life with this tulis.inu.uie maxim for money making Buy when every oue is selling, Bell when every one is buying. Some few weeks since, wheat, which had boea very buoyaut, suddenly felL Every one was selling. I hud a little money, and couMding in my golden rule, "pitched in," aud bought at "eighty-five," 'Very soou the staple commodity dropped to sixty-eight. Now, thought I, is the time to get a "margin;" so mortgaging tbe first lot, I bought oioro.
