LOVE I.N A PRINTING OFFICE. I once heard aa old j mr. remark that a prin 'ing olJice wa no 'place (or love niakinir : and I have since experienced the truth of his observa tionbeing now perfectly convinced that tho 11 iwer of love can nevor bloom in the mid it of types, stands, and printing ink. It waa my fortune once to snj mm for a few days in the village of ,.. Directly oppo-nto the office win a pretty white cottago, with a rose.btiHhcliUi.b.'ring around the caiement ; and I was uot loi.g in making tho discovery that the aforesaid vfiii cottage, with tho rose-shaded wiudow, egfevamea a lair inmate a flower whose beautyr outshone the roses that clua tcred around the window. Site was a little blue-fyed, eaucy-looking creature, of some six teen summers. She wa tho belle of tlie village. Uor name was Mary sweet, poetic Mary. .'I have a poetic paction for the name of Mary." it was a ncautilul summer morning, and I had raided the wina'ow ty admit ihe cool brceza frbm tho n iwer decked n;:ldo, and it wa not long be fore I perceived that the cottage winriowwaH also hoisted, and that sweet lutlo Mary was seated near it, busily engaged with her needle. I worked but little that morning. My eyes con stanliy wandered towards tiie cottago window, where little Mary ea', and all sorts of strange and fantastic notions wmrifd through my fancy-lig-ited brain, and I began to think I fell a slight touch of what the poets call love, sliding in at tho corner of my heart. A few day p aimed away, and chance ma le me acquainted with Miry. Heavens! she was a sweet creature she had a form that would liava shaded the famous Venus do Mcdicis a cheek that outblushed tho richest peach and a hp that would bavo tempted a boo from his hive on a frosty nioraing, I thought, ad I iriizedon her in inu'o admiration, that i had never looked upon one so exquisitely beautiful. She seetnej the cmboidmeut of all that is luve.'y and be- wiicuin daylight. I bori- th inaikd of t hit srrtnj for ninny day, Mid now whenever I see a lady cult-ring prmtii g i Hi o, I think of lutlo Mary, and kerp my rye on tho ink k g mid though she were at bi'sutiul ss Hebe, I would not venture to touch hi r with a ton foot polo !

Moral and I'ursrca CotiBAoe Coorair is properly considered the first essential quality to form the soldier. Abstractedly, tho princi ple is correct; but he who wonld aspire to mili. tary successor! this dependence, will find him. sell niiieratly disappointed. Courage is Bier- ai ana physical. In war the latter mav. on rare occasions, "few and far between," be turned to account w bile on service, eternal opportu nities open to turn who is possessor of the for mcr, a road to honor and distinction. I know not a physical quality which is exhibited under more different phases. Liko human temper, its varieties are innumerable. A man whose boiling courago leads him to volunteer himself enfant perdu of a forlorn hope, sinks under th fatigue- and privations of a few forced ni irches; while the impassive determination of another, who wanted nerve or ambition to head a lethal a.ruggle in tho breach, calmly works himself through difficulties, and by tbe of head and heart, establishes a marked tsuoeriuri'y over the reckless adventurer, who would boldly "stake his lifo upon tho ca-t," and with unsha ken determination to follow out t ho poet's words "stand the hazard of the die." 'The hair-brained courage ot our own countrymen is proverb ial. It is, when irregular, merely an idle kx hibttioti of reckless daring; when systctnctised, tho dangerous property that renders the Irish soldiers irresistible. I have, in a southern, in a southern fair, driven hundreds, in a. faction fight, before mo with a handful of dragoons; and yet thesj very men recruited the ranks of a "na live regiment a few months afierwards, which, bayonet to bayonet, scattered like sheep Napo. leon's uiiddl guard at Fuentoa d'O.ioro.

Uy other writers the amount is sup posed to bo still greater. Uy the same autho-ity, the wealth of the church in Mexico, is estimated at from ninety lo. on hundred miliums of dJtrs.

Returning tw o days ago from ono of our most advanced pickets, whither he had been sent to convey orders, ho eamo unexpectedly upon two Aesican soldier?, who had, apparently, just rowed across the river, and were refreshing themselves in a cool shade, bavir.g placed their mui-kets in thoughtless security against a neigh, boring tree. Gilbert was equal to the emer gency, he sprang to tho muskets, threw one upon the ground, aud stepped upon it, while vi it h the other he menaced the lives of his op ponents. They cowered beucath his eagle glance, and reluctantly pursued the course which lie indicated.

I managed to twist my arm around her waitst, and in struggling to free herself, she upset a galley of editorial, a long ar ticle on the Oregon question. Nothing dauuted, I made at her again. This tune I was more successful, for 1 obtained a kits.

Hints to a Soldier in Service. with pai;t, I again seized her waist and said "Well, if you don't like it.jtnt take back the kiss." She made a desperate struggle, and as she jerked bet jell from my arms, her foot struck the lyo-pot, and over it went ! Another galley of editorial w'i sprinkled over the fljor, and in her efforts to reach tho door, her Joot slipped and she fell, aud in the effort to sustain herself. her hand her lily-white band tho same little hand that bad come in contact with my ears oh, horrible ! was Etuck up to the elbow in the ik keg !

Hefore 1 cold re cover from my surprise, tbe eame lutlo hand bad again left its inky imprint on my chock. "Why, Mary," I exclaimed, "what are you aboutl" "1 think you told mo you rolled ink on the face of the form," with a loud laugh, and again her hand lit upon uiy lace lamng me a uroaa slap in the very middle of my countenance, and most wofully bedaubing my eyes. With a slignt step and a merry peal of laughter, she skipped through tho door. She turned back when beyond my reach, and with her roguish face peering in at my doorway, shouted back. "1 say, Charley, what kiud of a roller does my hand make" Oii," said I, "you tako too much ink."
