1 would not die when winter chilly and dreary,
Fling*o Vr the esrlh rta shroud of fleecy ?iow ;
Mv spirits then. howler, lone and weary.
Would clMore not, on her homeward (light to go.
* * * .
I would not <i>? when ?priog is brightly beaming,
And all ?he earth warms in her loved embrace,
When new born beauties all around are gleaming,
Ah, then the "shining way" 1 would ?ot trace.
Nor yet when summer's gentle air is singing,
Aod bearing wide its freight of rich perfume ;
When Nature's choir in rapturous rtrmins is singing
1 would not pass the portal* of the tomb.
But at the close of ?me calm autumn day,
Just as the tun Kinks in the golden west,
Methlnks I then would gladly pans away,
Away to Heaven?to blessedness and rent.
O calm, congenial hour, befltticg time,
When nature, fading, seems to droop and die,
When sweetly and the plaintive breezes chime,
A ad antumn'j pageant solemnly sweeps by.
In GotTs appointed time, when it may come.
In winter, spring, or summer's glori? us time,
Then would I go to m immortal home.
Where death invades not the celestial clime.
A Man who Patronizes the Paper.?
If there is one thing more impertinent
than another, to our minds, it is hearing
a man say he patronizes a newspaper.
We hate the term in every sense in which
it is used, and more especially when em
ployed in the way of which we are speak
ing. Look at it for a moment. A thick
headed fellow, with just enough sense to
know that he should twu! the papers, if
it were only to be pasted up in the fact
that the Dutch took Holland, Queen Anne
was dead, and that Alexander the Great,
to use a fashionable affectation?has been
dead some years, snhncribee. or, he
would s?y, patronizes a paper to the ex
cruciating sum of two dollars per annum.
IP an article appears, political, ethical,
physical, which should not exactly coin
cide with his own crude and ill-digested
notions, he forthwith blusters about pat
ronage, and threatenes to withdraw it al
together. His wanting a paper to be but
his own sentiments, at all times, is not
less ridiculous than the old lady who
asked to have her paper printed on large
type because her eyesight was not good.
Did it ever enter the head of a patron to
contemplate the labor, the wealth of in
tellect and capital in money which is re
quired to give him his two dollars' worth
of information? That the sources of
chemistry, the inventive genius of mech
anism, the toil of hundreds of human be
ings are in requisition to give us ink, pa
per and machinery, as the first step to
wards forming the paper he patronizes ?
When the physicalities are furnished him,
has be thought for a moment that the
well-digested article, which he reads in
?en minutes, is the production of a mind
richly cultivated by hours of close study,
when the patron has been cosily snoring
on his couch ??that the printers, per
haps, his superiors in education and in
tellect, are engaged in coining into pal
pable and immortal shapes, the thoughts
which run from the creative minds ol
editor ??that pressmen and carriers are
required to labor in producing a might?
result of talent, time, labor and capital,
which is placed in the liberal hand of the
patron for the insignificant sum of twe
dollars per annum ?
Lima.?A recent traveller in Souti
America, tells us, that among the varied
crowd of Lima, there were two character*
to be found everywhere, at the cafes, ho
tela, markets, churches, and cock-pi t
the lottery seller with his book of num
bers and the begging friar with his tic
box. I saw the latter at the cock fight
and the former at vespers. The whole
appearance of Lima struck me as theatri
cal ; tne pasteboard lcoking houses with
their bird-cage balconies, and the stroll
? ing player look of the people. The light
balconies and scenic painting and fres
coes of the houses, haa a wonderful stage
operatic look, and Aminas and Fra Dia
volos were at every corner to complete
the illusion. The priests, in their shovel
hats and long black robes, and with se
cular tastes and "habits smpking cigar
ettes in the most sacred recesses of th<
sanctuary, seemed to be playing a part
The gaily dressed women, putting or
their prettiest air, and making love a
every corner, had the sham look of th<
stage. Every thing appeared as if i
might be shifted, and would disappeai
in an instant at the whistle of the promp
ALadi* wim a WoodenLEG.-"Uenry,'
who formerly consulted us about a younj
lady with a wooden leg, haa now brough
the matter to a crisis bv marrying her
and now, after a month's experience, ai
entire honeymoon, Henry says:?
411 am happy to say a wooden leg is m
bad bargain. I married Jessie about i
month ago : she refused to give up th
wooden leg for a cork one, as she said sh
detested false appearances. She is al
ways at home except when she goes ou
, with myself; she never flirts with othe
men; she never dances at a party ; sh
* requires only one stocking and one' boo
* or shoe, and these serve her a long time
I as she does not walk much, and yet sb
is not unpleasant to walk with; sh
diflers very little from other young wo
men. The onlv expense of the woode:
* leg is the breaking of a strap, which i
* easily repai*$d, and the supplying a littl
gutta percha for the end of it, to^preven
? uoise in walking. Balancing profi
against loss, a lady with a wooden le
- is rather profitable; not to speak of othe
benefits. I find in Jessie all that enjoy
went could desire."
4 Tax Last Strike.?The shoemakers c
?* Lynn, Mass., finding recently that thci
earnings hardly sufficed to keep sole an.
body together, struck for wages a pc
higher. Though the rates demanded wer
, reasonable, and far from being high
< heeled, the employers refused to toe th
mark: whereupon the workmen bouni
themselves (not in oalH to stick like wa
for their rights. Those of the strikers
however, who had not saved sufficient c
the needful to keep them on their peg
without a constant pegging, soon fount
matters slippery, and, to terminate th
difficulty, came out square-toed?threat
ening their employers with personal vie
r-kpoe if they would not immediately ,jiv
in. This seemed convincing proof fha
the workmen were not to be easily pu
under foot, and the bosses, believing the^
would hold out to the last, and fearfu
of being themselves knocked right an<
left, finally crimped, and heeled matter
by yielding to awl demands. It is evei
asserted that some of them were so glai
the troubles were at an end that they gav
a treat to boot.
, II-abmr than a Brick.?The Pough
keepsie Daily Press says A3 a dusti
looking " colored child/' about 40 year"
r'f age, and from the country, was passim
under the scaffold of the building nov
being erected on the corner of Main aix
Catharine streets the other day, a bricl
came down, struck upon his head ant
^ broke in two. He was stunned for 1
moment, but soon recovered sufficient!]
to get off the following and leave thorf
who had gathered aroknd him in a roa
of laughter:??* I say you white turn ui
dar, if you don't want yer bricks broke
jest keep 'em off my head."
