Jiut my hearers, the most nnlortnnate- ly indiscreet mortal npon earth is the hypochondriac, His little sum ot happi ness consists in keeping himself misera ble, and everybody amnnd him. He makes up a choice assortment of Ideal complaints, and never takes greater com fort than when he thinks he has persua ded people he has use fur them all at once. lie often grumbles for the want of something to grumble at grumbles out a long and tedious existence, and ceases only to growl when death closes bis month. I My friends : that man possesses true wisdom who bears np beneath a heavy load of disappointmentor afliction who contributes to the welfare ot his fellow- creatures as far as lies in his pocket and power who sees nothing but what is beautiful in natnre, and who never finds mult with any of the doings of Provi dence. So uiote it be t DCST TO DUST. ' Tex Few are thy days, and full of wo, O in n, ef woman born I Thy doom is written, 'Dust thou art, And shall lo dust return.' Behold th emblem of thy stste, In & were that bloom ind die, Or In the shadow's Heeling rorm, That muck Ihe gsier's eye. My IIeabkks : the days of man, born of a woman, are few indeed scarcely worth mentioning. There was a time when human life stretched itself to a thou sand years ; but, now, one thinks he does pretty well it he can crawl near enough to get a grab at threescore and ten. In "Oiiseqmnco of your sins and iniquities, brethren, yon are not allowed to tarnish thecarth wiihyur vile tread bnt for aver y short time. Verily, as it hath been written, Yon spring np like poprgras, jump about like a hopiiergrass. an I lie down and die like a jackass. Then is a number put' on yonr days and that number is almost 0. Yonr days, brethren, are full of wo filled to the brim with grief, cares, sor row and anxieties. Tho All wise Kuler of the universe plants th'Ttis in your partis purs aloes in yonr cups oi pleas ure mixes pa n with every joy, and lie stows lh blessings of sick ne-s tt on you in order thnt von mav appreciate the still r ater blessing of health. Yon probably tniuk it liar I tint von r comiK'llnl ti travel so rough a road as the one that leads from the cradle to the grave ; but brethren, recollect that whatever heaven has ordained is all for the lieaf . As mv friend l'ope says 'Whatever is, is right;' so content yourselves with vour miseries. and make up your minds that yon aro a great deal happier than you at present imagine. My dear hearers : do yon know what ron are mude f Dust, nothing but 'luM 1 The lene nMits in w'iieh your soulg resi lei are m, remn l hmlthanties, ion strueted of the soil that yields yon your tond. Death soon demolishes them they commingle with tho dust from which they were made, and the spirit takes wings unto the (.toil that mano it. I5ut. brethren, by proppcr care and stlf atten tion, you may hold out toa good old age. It vmi neglect yourselves, rrovtdence will neglect you ; and Satan always stands ready to accommo late all against whom the gates of h aven are closed. Breth 'm, in oiiler to prolong life, allow me to tell vou how to live during the sickly Beaton He temperate in eating don't gorge nn derent. and yon enjoy an immunity from all sumiller epidemics. At the.sanie time, yon should be careful what yon eat, how ever little it mav be.

In short mv dear friends. life is one of the greatest nncertenties in the world ; nut make the best of it while it is yours livo temperately be good humored, cheerful, kind aná charitablo, and you will get as much of it m is at present allotted to mankind. So mote it bet Good Thing From Knick. The following rich feast is from the Editor's, Table of tho Knickerbocker Mag azine for October and November, 1852. A distinguished member of the New York br, was retained on one oocasion by a friend, also a New Yorker, to attend to a complaint made against him before a New Jersey Justice, for an assault and battery npon one of the residents of the "old Jersey btate." "1 appear for the prisoner." said the counsellor to the mod- em Dogberry, "You appears for debris'- ner, do yon. and who den be you?" in, terrnpted tho justice, eyeing liim from head to foot with marked curiosity : "I ton't know you, vair bo's von come from, and vot's yer namel" The councilor modestly gave his name, and said : "I am a member of tho New York bar." "Vol den," replied the justice, "you gan't bractis in dis here gort." "I am a coun sellor of the Supreme Court of the State of New York," reiterated the attorney. "Dat makes not'ing tifferrent, said the inveterate instice. "Well' then " onlrl the baffled lawyer, "suppose I show to your Honor, that I am counsellor of the Suprem Court of the United Stats?". "It ton't make a pit pettor," replied he of the ermine: "you am ta gounaellor von de State of New Jarsev. mid you gan't bractis in dis grrt " This decision ac counts for the feet that New Jarsey is not in the United States I On another occa sion, the same dignitary said to a jury, who had been listening to a trial before him of an unfortunate fellow for some of fenco against the State : "Shentlemen of der shoory, shtand np : dis here vellow, der bris'ner at de par, says he ish von New York : now I dinks ho pes a ptitch er poy, he trives pigs troo de shtreets, and ven he trives der pig, he kits odor people's pigs mit dem vot ho hat before : dat's wot I calls pig sbtealin.' Now shen tlemen if do vellow shteals pigs in New York. I link be vill shteals gowa In Jar sey. nnd doreforelt'ink he be a cow t'ief: and your shndgenient s'all be kilty. Vot yon sail say. shentlemen of do shoory? ish he kiltv, oder not kilty ! If yon say he is kilty' I sends him to de State Bri sen, mid two years." And he did send him I Píri-or Mioic To eat a pock of pa per shavings, and convert them into rib lion. Shouts of laughter generally arise from the audience wdiilo the magician stows away" down his bottomless throat the heaps of paper before him ; but when he "brings up" yards npon yards of rib bon, asa proof of his bad digestion, the splitting sides burst with applause. This, like all the best illusions, is exceeding simple ; but to carry it off well requires a little gesticulation and comic spirit iu tho illusionist. Procure fifteen separate yards of differrcnt colored ribboa, at that width as is sold at a penny a yard, sew them together to form one length, joining the contrasting collors ; then roll it np neatly round itself and it will be about the size of four half crowns put together. Now obtain two ocnnv worth of white na per shavings from a book binder ; shake them np lightly, and they will look like a bushel. When yon begin the trick, take the roll ot ribbon in the lot t hand, which with a few shavings, is effectnaly hidden, then "set to" and cat your paper : as vou feed, by pretending to thrust an extra handful down the throat from time to time, you can easily msnage to withdraw the masticated portions unseen and carry them doffn to the ground, as yon lift oth er "tit bits" to the month. Aftei this has continued long enough, that is, when yonr visiters have laughed "till their sides acne," the shavings are now and then pressed np, which gives the appear anee of diminished quantity, finally a last effort is made "to finish it," and you then pop the roll of ribbon into the month, and throwing tho remaining shav ings on the floor, yon take hold of the ond of the ribbon, and begin to unwind it, by drawing it gradually from the month, it will appear as though it came from the stomach ; the teeth mnst be kept close enongh to prevent the entire roll from being pulled ont altogether. When clevorly performed, this trick is one of the dchi pieces oi mn which uie magician exhibits. ' The man who struck "terror" has been arrested, and will be tried forthwith. A FLOATING CITY.
