[The following lines from u Household Words," are full of wholesome advice as well as beautiful imagery. They convey to the youthful dreamer a lesson which it would be well for him to ponder.] Arise ! for the day* is passing While you lie dreaming on ; Year brothers arc cased in a; .nor, And forth to the light are gone ; Your place in the ranks awaits you ; Each man has a part to play ; The past and the future are nothing In the face of the stern to-day. Arise from your dreams of the future— Of gaining a hard fought field, Of storming the airy fortress, Of bidding the giant yield ; Your future has deeds of glory, Of honor; (God grant it may !) But your arm will never be stronger, Or needed as now—to-day. Arise ! if the post detain you, Her sunshine and storms forget; No chains so unworthy to hold you As those of a vain regret; Sad or bright, she is lifeless ever ; Cast her phantom arms away, Nor look back, save to learn the lesson Of a noble strife to-day. Arise ! for the.hour is passing ; The sound that you dimly hear, Is your enetny marching to battle ! Rise ! rise ! for the foe is near 1 Stay not to brighten ytur weapons, Or the hour will strike at last, And front dreams of a coming battle, You will waken, and find it past. The bad Latin and French displayed in Goiigrtss, nas passed mto a proverb; ant! many a man who might have held a re spectable position in the House of Repre sentatives and Senate, has been ruined by the display of his pedantry. The late Timothy Fuller, of Massachusetts, who was especially addicted to quotations, ma ny years ago covered himself with confu sion by concluding a speech with a long extract from Homer, which not a dozen men in the house could understand. The moment hej-esumed his seat, old George Kramer of Pennsylvania, rose : and by way of lydicious contrast and punishment let off a volley of low Pennsylvania Dutch, to the amusement of every one, and to the chagrin and lasting mortification of the gentlemen from Massachusetts. * Mr. William Halstead, of New Jersey, who, at one time represented his native Sta'e in the American Repre sentatives, and who, everybody will ad mit, is a man of ability, who might ac quire eminence in any deliberative assem bly in the world, compratively fell from a really respectable position as a statesman, by interlarding his "first great speech," with Latin enough to filba good sized com mon place book. When he had conclu ded, old Ratliff Boone, of Indiana, imita ting the example of George Kramer of other days, deluged him with an ora tion in the Pottowottomie dialect. The best, the purest, and the most elo quent of all English writers, Junius was content with the language of his country. In no instance throughout his voluminous and unequalled letters, can there be found an instance of his quoting Latin or French, unless compelled 10 it by technicalities ; and, even then, he evidently sought to avoid the folly. Doctor Johnson, Hume, Goldsmith, Gibbon, of other days, very rarely resorted to them, and Macauley, | and most of the abler literary men of the ! present day, give them the go by. One of the purest writers of this coun try, who, as an editor, until he retired ' fiom the press altogether, held a most en j viable position as a literary man, not only | eschewed learned quotations but it was ; his boast that the English language was j the only one he employed ; and that it was capable of subserving all the practical I purposes of editorial duty he aimed at.— Cabbett.thoughan accomplished Latin and < French scholar, obtained a good degree of emmence heachieved,by thesimplicity and purity of his English. The London Times a gazette which is certainly conducted j with an ability equal to that displayed by I any paper in the world, is rarely disfigur ' ed by quotations from foreign tongues, — The example is worthy imitation by all who would achieve editorial eminence.— iV.

NOW . i'arrot Talk. The Division of Time. Many ages must have elapsed after the creation of the world before any method of computing Time, or of dating evenu, was brought into established use. At a very early period, time was measured by the revolutions of the moon, the seasons suc cessive returns of labor and rest; but so late as the age of Homer a formal calendar seems to have beeh unknown to history, or a register of events. The division of days into weeks is the most ancient way of making time, proba bly took place at the Creation. The next division was that of months, which appear ed to have been in use before the Flood. The months were marked by the revolu tion of the moon, consequently were cal led lur.ar months. The highest natural division of ime is into years. At first a year consisted *>f on ly wfr<- <ir months. It is supjfrDsrcf that this method of reckoning was in use as early as the Deluge, and that it contin ued for many ages after. But this was a very imperfect mode of computing time, for a lunar year was nearly eleven days shorter than a solar year; hence the months could not very long correspond with the season, Even in the space of 17 years the winter months would have changed places with those of summer. The Calendar which is now generally adopted in the Christian world was insti tuted by Romulus. His year began on the Ist of March and continued only ten months, or about 301 days, hence was ve ry imperfect. Numa give the year 355 days, added two months, and transferred the beginning of the year to the LA of Jan uary. But this way was still making the year too short. When Julius Cresar obtained th l *o-•"!,- eigntv of Rome, he found the months had changed from the seasons, ar.d in order :) bring them forward to their places, he for med a long year of 15 months or 4 15 days. This has been called the year of confusion. It ended January Ist, forty-five years be fore Christ. From this period the Julian year of 365 days and 6 hours commenced. The common years contained 305 days, but once ever four years the six hours amounted to another day, and this was ad ded to the 23th of February, or the sixth calends of March, which was to be reck oned twice, hence this year was styled Bissextile, or Leap Year. The Julian year, however, was still im perfect, for the earth performs its annual circuit round the sun in three hundred and sixty-five days, five hours and forty .• . .t cuds; hence the solar year was shorter than the Julian, or civil year, by eleven minutes, and fourteen and a half seconds, which in two hundred and thirty years amounted to a day. In the coursj of time this inconvenience becoming too considerable to be unnoticed, Pope Gregory, XIII. substituted a new calendar, called the Gregorian Calendar or new style. It was published in March, A. D. 1552. Ten days luid now been gained by the old made of reckoning, and these were struck out of the month of Oc tober following, by reckoning the fifth day of that month the fifteenth. And in order to prevent the occurrence of a similar variation in time to come, he ordained that one day should be added to every fourth year before, and that from the year 1659 every fourth centenial y-f** 4 * should be reckoned ns a leap year, and the other three centenial vearsas common ones. Thus the years 1709, 18 )3, 1999, 2100, 2500, etc. are to be reckoned as com mon ones, and 1099, 2003, etc. as leap years. Even this correction is n>t auso lutely exact, yet the eiror is so small as to hardly vary one day in over a thousand years. The mode of computing time as estab lished by Gregory is called New Style, and that by Julius Caesar, Old Style, The new style was adopted by Spain, Portugal 1 and part of Italy on the same day as Rome and in France on the tenth of December following which was reckoned the 29th day. But in Great Britain this change was not adopted until September, 1752, when 170 years had elapsed since the Gregori an alterations, consequently a little mor< * than another day had been gained. It was therefore enacted by Parliament that' eleven days instead of ten should be stricken out of the month of September ! 1752. On the second day of that month the Old Style ceased, and the third day was reckoned the fourteenth. By '.he same act Great Britain changed the be ginning of the year from the 25th ol March to the first of January. The time for commencing the year has usually been determined, among different; nations, by-the date of some memorable event, such as the Deluge, the Incarnation of Christ, etc. The Egyptians began the year with the autumnal equinox. The Jewish eclesiastic year began in the Spring, but in civil affairs they retained the epoch of the Egyptians. The ancient Stveedish year began about the time o r the winter solstice. The Turks and Aratr* commence their year ahout the middia of July. When Romulus began the year in March, he named the four last months ac cording to their position. The names, September, October, November and De-i cember, designated their order; seventh, [ eighth, ninth and tenth. But Numa changed the beginning of the year to the first cf January without altering the names of the months ; hence they do not corres pond to their order in the calendar. Owing to these changes in the mode of reckoning time, if we wish to ascertain to what date in Old Stylo would a certain day in New Style correspond, or what date in New Style any day of Old Style would represent, we must observe the fol lowing rule: If the event happened before the first of March 1700, add ten days to the Old Style and you will have it corrected for the New ; if it happened between the fast day of Februarys, 1703, and the Ist of March 1800, adl eleven days, if between the same dates in ISOO and 1900, add twelve days; and If between 1900, and 2100, add thirteen Jays..

There are cer tain individuals who render themselves cpntemptibie. if not odious, in the estima tion of the manly and generous, by PETTY MEANNESS if we may be allowed to employ such a phrase. They are constantly en gaged in sneaking, unworthy and discred itable actions, and are either gratified in tbus indulging a miserable species of dis honesty, or deceived into the belief that they escape observation. They appear to take delight in small matters, and will la bor for hours and days to accomplish some comparatively insignificant object, and this rr.jU'. iibout the decencies arid proprieties of life. They forgetthat the eyes ot others are upon them, or they become so devo ted to this system by habit, that they can not help its indulgence. There are some men so mean that they are absolutely dishonest. They disregard consience, violate honor, perpetrale false hood, and all in a sordid and mercenary spirit, and under the hollow pretence that such a system is sanctioned by busi ness, by competition, by rivalry in trade, and by the laudable desire to obtain an independence. They appear to think that they may do anything within the low, provided it brings them gain. Self is the idol of their worship, and in offering up ii.cense before the altars of-Mammon, they sacrifice all the purer, higher and holier principles and impulses, that are so P ♦iWb.u'Cs~t3> J:gt if v'a f-J aool'n tFumah ; n ure.

Children, beware of evil thoughts and deeds ! —They have ail finger • marks, which will be revealed at some time. If you disobej your parents or tell a false hood, or take what is not yourmvn, you'll make sad finger marks on your character. And so it is with any arid all sin. It de files the character. It betrays those who engage in it by the marks it makes on them. The marks may be almost if not quite colorless at first. But even if they should not be seen during any of your days on earth—which is not at all likely —yet there is a day coming in which all finger marks or sin stains on the charac ter will be manifest. Never suppose that you can do what is j VTT.Ig, without having a stain upon your character. It is impossible. If you in jure another, you, by that very deed, in jure your own self. If you disregard the Ltv of God, the injury is sadly your own. Think of it, ever bear it in mind,children, ti.at every sin you commit, leaves a mark upon yourselves. Your character should be a coating of pure truth. Let cheerfulness ever be man ifest.- Beware of sin—"and be sure your sin will find you out," for it makes finger marks which, even should they not be seen by those around you on earth, will L* seen by your commendation at the bar' of God."

U PROGRESS" IN THE PULPIT.—Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, the best specimen of Young America to be found in the Ministry, in a recent discourse delivered in Washin-gten city, held forth as fol lows : A CHURCH ON AN EGGLESS NEST. A true ministe must know no fear. He must be a warrior. He must not preach to please the Justice of the peace or the Senate. He must go forth and attack j wrong wherever he finds it. Does he say that is perilious? Why,it is perilous to live. When preachers shall do their duty faithfully, there will be less dogs to bark. They are told to mind their own business and not to be medlers, But the minister who never creates any agitation, is like the husbandman who never plows, ; becauseJie may rip up some old roots.— it is a peculiarity of the Gospel that it don't mind its own business. It is aggres sive, It don't wait for man to come to it for relief, but it goes out to find man, wherever he is. A Church may have all truth in its creed, but if it sits on its egg less nest and never incubates, it is just hs dead as its opposite neighbor, whobeliewes in all manner of error, DEAD MATTER, Preaching is substance in life. A bullet must have power behind it, or it is dead matter. If men ceeded only argument, analysis, and deductions, then the Bible would be enough. But the object of preaching is not to build up a creed or a system, but to repress sin and evil. The churches of the present day disputing about the correctness and tendency of dif ferent articles of faith, reminded him of a number of workmen assembled to erect a ! building. They begin to compare their sands, disputing which has the sharpest— their chisels, contending which has the best temper —and their axes, boasting of the skill and fame of the makers—but never strike a blow or make a tenon tow ards the erection of the edifice, SILIC STOCKINGS AND WHITE KIDS. The ministers of these churches think it so sweet and genteel to attack sin indi rectly. But the Gospel is direct and Rev olutionary. 1 here was a meaning in the I declaration of Jesus that he came to send ! a sword and not peace. Ihe Savior wants | stout, and brave men, not gentle men, in silk stockings and kid gloves. Their preaching must be bold and applicatory. The Gospel it is true, is very inconvenient to sinners, but it must be preached, so that -J /uiiUar'u, stingy, and'crabbed souls, un just men, and oppressors, will feel that it is after them, PREACHING TO TLEASE THE PEWS. Sometimes the men in fhe pews are im pelled to speak out against wrong, but their pastor tells them it is not prudent.— If I (said Mr, B.) had a Gospel like that, I would throw it overboard. 1 would nev er preach to please the pews. There are congregations of men who build splendid edifices, with (j|ch pulpits, handsomely carpeted aisles,well cushioned pews, splen did organ, and have very respectable choirs—but don't call such Churches of Christ—call them Odd Fellows—Mutual Insurance Companies—anything respecta ble but churches. ASSISTANCE IN BUSINESS.—It was said that the s-cret o( Napoleon's greatness lay more in his judicious choice ol assis tance than in what he did himself, and this was a remarkable feature in the char acter and success of the renowned mer chant, Samuel Budget. In fact, it is only a part of any considerable business that a man can do with his own hands and eyes, and it is of great importance that the other parts should be well done. To choose assistants, therefore, and treat them well both in point of salary and personal inter course, is, I think, the part of true wis dom. We read of one who was prosper ed in everything that he had for his ser vcyit's sake ; and a good assistant in business, one who will think and plan, and execute for the good of the business, is not to be lightly esteemed. The sooner however, you get rid of clerks and fore men who frequent saloons and theatres, and ride out on Sabbath days, the better for your own interest. A word to the wise should be enough on this heaaT MORE DISCOVERIES AT NINEVEH.—A letter from Mosul, in the New York Tri bune, states tnat a new palace has been uncovered in the ruins of Nineveh, a pal ace whose beauty excels any yet found in Assyria. The letter thus describes the new discovery. •'Huge monsters—compounds of the lion, man and eagle—guard the entrance.

The Trutees are to meet next June, select a site, choose a scientific prac tical farmer as principal, as well as teach ers to impart to pupils a knowledge ot th® English language, grammar, geography, history, mathematics, chemistry and such other branches of the natural and exact science as will conduce to the proper ed ucation of a farmer; the pupils shall at such times and seasons as may be pre scribed by the trustees, perform all the la bor necessary in the cultivation of the farm, and thus be instructed and taught all things necessary to be known by a farmer, it be ing the design and intention of the law to be an institution in which youth may b® educated as to fit them for the occupation of a farmer, The Board of trustees, through their treasurer, will make an annual report of receipts and disbursements, to the Penn sylvania State Agricultural Society, which it shall embody in the annual report that by law the society is bound to make to the Legislature every year. The Pennsyl vania State Agricultural Society is author ised to appropriate out of their funds to the objects of this school ten thousand dollars, if required, and to make such ap propriation annually, out of their lunds, a# will aid in the prosecution of this object; to enable the irsttituiion to go into opera tion and sustain it, there is appropriated the sum of thirty thousand dollara, to be paid in annual instalments of ten thousand dollars, out of any money in the treasury mot otherwise appropriated.
