Vlicn life grow dark its flattering glo It bright delusions dimmed and gone When worldly gold has turned to dross, And hope no longer lures us on, Tie then we test tlie precious ore In woman's breast, untried before. Should font prove rough, and skies obscured. And angry tempests rend my eaila My bark, in no sweet haven moored, The sport of waves, and adverse gales; Oh ! then, my love, I'd turn to thee, lly polar star on life's rude sea. Or if, beneath some stricken tree, That emblemed forth my own stern lot, I stood, in midnight reverie, By all, perchance, but thee forgot; 'Ti then for thy dear voice I'd long, To drown the night-bird's boding song. Or wlien, In winter's saddening hours, Their U y chills would round me creep When fronts had spoiled my summer bowers, And dark Sirebodings banished sleep; Oh! whence would come my ray of bliss, And thou not near, lu gloom like this? But should those waves subside to rest, And gentle calms o'er ocean reign, The halcyon, slumbering on her nest, l'rocluim sweet peace restored again; Would I theu look to thee alone, W hen myriad lights around me shone? Or should some gonial spring restore That blifhted tree to forest green The Owl's dull chant be heard no more, Where blither minstrels cheered the scene; Would thought recur, as day grew bright, To that dear voice that lone'y night? Or doomed on foreign strand to roam, Vr nnught sustained but dream of thee; Miould happier fortunes cull me home My fettered spirit once more free Would it not find, iu life's bright streams, A lethc for the woe-wrought dreams? Thus, thus man's heart that senseless thing When swoln with pride, secure in ease; While suppliant tendrils ronnd it cling, Deems woman's faith but such as those; Nor owns, till summer wreaths decay, Iu its fond clasp a constant stay. l or woman's faith, like faith divine, F.ndureth (inn, through time and place Not the frail annual's transient twine, Hut the perennial's fust embrace; The generous ivy, ofttimes seen To clothe e'en ruin in living green. w. B For the Standard. They Call me Light Hearted. They call me light hearted, Oh, little they know Ot the hours I've past In sadness and woe.

Then call me light hearted; I'll never complain, For the smile I must wear To cover my pain. South Troy. -TorsT. iHisccllancous Articles. THE FIRST STATE PRISONER. BY GRANT THOEBLRX. One day lie gave a man a pair of boots. "Now, friend," says he, Hhee must baing home these boots on fourth day evening." Says the man, "You shall have them." The boots did not come home till the fifth day evening. Noah was wroth. lie gave the man a long lecture on the evils of disappointment and want of punctuali ty. When he drew np to breathe, the man replied : "Sir, I am a poor man ; have a wife and three children, the youngest only forty-eight hours old. I had to tend to my wife and cook for my children. It was not in my power to finish the boots sooner, isoan sua continued to magnny the horrors of disappointment. The man grew angry ; tiis &cotcn Diooa oouea in his veins ; he struck the counter with his fist like a sledge-hammer. "I know," says he it's a terrible thing to be disap pointed. I remember going up to the park to see you hung, and I never was so disappointed in my life when I saw the reprieve. Now this was a knock down argument as an Irishman -would say. It was a case in point, as they say in court ; and a fact beyond all controversy, as they say in Congress. Noah was dumb ; he opened not his mouth. He gave the man anoth er pair to make, kept him in employ ment, treated him kindly, but as the man said he never heard the word disappoint drop from his lips thereafter. Noah went on prospering and to pros per. Une day he borrowed various sums of money, and obtained a number of en dorsements. The bills he changed for gold ; the endorsements he got shaved in Wall street. That night he was off for part unknown, taking with him a dear sister, the wife of a young friend, to cheer him on the way. This story is true to the letter, and being the first subject of state prison reform, the day dreamers of the present time may settle the question whether banging or state prison is the surest way of curing a consummate vil lain. His family and friends never heard from him. Agricultural ttcaMng. 1 landed in New York, June 1774, by trade a rough nailmaker, in the 22d year of my age. In October following I went tip to the Tark to see a man hung, (at that time the- Park was out of town, and only 50,000 inhabitants). With ten thou sand fools, some bigger and some smaller than myself, we stood watching the vi bration of the rope and the iron hook during two long hours. Then the sheriff' btood on the scaffold and read a reprieve. I confess I was very much disappointed I expected to see a hanging, hutnohan ing was there. The man was Noah Gardner. lie kept a large shoe store in New York, ' lie committed forgery, which, at that time, was death by the luws of the United Status. The state prison in New York was building at this time ; this was the first prison erected in the world for re form, instead of hanging. The Society of Friends were the chief promoters of this humane system. One room in the prison was now ready to receive crimi nals. The Kriend.4 procured from the governor's commutation from death to the state prison tor life. Ileing a shoemaker by trade, they gave him a stool wax, lasts and awls, and here commenced the state prison manufactory. Next court, six vagabonds were sent to keep him company ; thera he learned to make shoes. I visited the prison three years after this. In one large room sal three hundred shoemakers. Noah was provost marshall, walking throu"h the ranks with cane in hand, punishiii" evil doers and praising them that did well. Seven years having passed over him, the Friends waited on the governor. 'Friend,' said tuey, "seven years ago you would have hung this man ; now he is a reform ed member saved to society." He received an unconditional pardon, and came out. The Friends found him a f lore on Tearl street, found him money, enoorsea ms notes, and gave him their euMora. Imraediuelv he ving way. lie joined the Society of Friends, and said thee and thou with the 1.-st of tlicm. He had a wife, and, chil dren arvivod at maturity. ilia journeymen were chiefly ruen of hmilie. .ini wrought in their own hous SOME NOSE. The following incident we had from a friend who knows the parties. Deacon Comstock, of Hartford, Connecticut, is well known as being provided with an enormous handle to his countenance, in the shape of a huge nose, in fact it is re markable for its great length. On a late occasion, when taking up a collection in the church to which the deacon beloncs. as he passed through the congregation every person to whom he presented the bag seemed to be possessed with an un controllable desire to laugh. The deacon did not know what to make of it. He had often passed round before, but no such effects as these had he ever witnessed. I he deacon was fairly puzzled. The se cret however leaked out. ne had been afflicted for a day or two with a slight sore on his nasal appendage, and had placed a small piece of sticking plaster on it. inuring the day referred to.the nlnu ter had dropped off, and the deacon seein it, as he supposed, on the floor, picked it np and stuck it on again. But alas be picked up instead, one of those little pieces of paper which are pasted on the end of every spool of cotton, and which reads as follows: "Warranted to hold out 200 yards." Such a sign on such a nose, was enough to upset the gravity of even a puritan congregation, and we think the laughing justifiable. The Poor Man's PirE. We admit that the money expended for tobacco might buy good clothes and wholesome food ; but among the sunbeams let into the cottage, not the least is the light of the poor man's pipe. We write now with especial reference to the treatment of women ; and we are convinced that the pipe has a very sedative and tranquili sing effect. Much angry and bitter feel ing, we are convinced, is puffed out and dissipated with the fumes of the tobacco. On the w hole, the pie is not an offence, but a protection to women. North Brit ish Review. O" There are three sorts of nobility divine, worldly, and moral ; the divine depends upon the power of God ; the worldly upon the greatness of our birth, the moral upon the liberty of our mind.

The surface of the earth at this time is almost everywhere covered with that rich, beautiful and fragrant plant, clover, of one kind or another. It covers broad fields, waiting for the scythe, and mean while scattering its fragrance over towns and villages; in springs in wide pas tures, dots the hills where sheep roam, checkers the valleys where cattle graze and perfumes them with its sweet breath. From it bees are busy laying up stores ot honey which may yet come to our tables. The dusty way-side and the crevices in the dry rocks are redolent of the clover blossoms, and the bleak bank and deep excavation of the railroad track are cheered with its beauty and fragrance too. It is not a new setting of gems in the sweet grass, but a multiplication of them, with fresh brilliants added. It comes to us daily, not only on our senses, but to our physical nature, in the golden butter, ten der sirloins or lamb ; in the cream for our fruit and ices, and grateful milk dur ing the fervid heat ! "The clover is everywhere," people est. "and how came it there?" Fields v at band are now so thickly covered with it that it can no longer stand. But those fields were not seeded by man. Last year some of them were sowed with oats that are now dense with clover alone ; and so it is with pastures, and even some low grounds where clover has rarely, if ever, been seen before. It is everywhere. Grows in the garden" and corn field. Herebolds up its modest head in the hot highway, and there, looks clean and prim by the spring, or laves its blossoms in the cool brook as the limpid waters pass along. Well, welcome, welcome, to the clover for it sheds innumerable blessings on us, for, with the other grasses it forms the basis of agriculture. No wonder the Flemings said, that "without clover no man in Flanders would pretend to call himself a farmer." The introduction of clovers, and the cultivated grasses, is one of the greatest improvements in modern husbandry. The commencement of in provements in tbe different species of live stock, in the mode of cultivation, and in the superior quality, as well as quan tity, of the crops of grain, may be dated from the period when the sowing of clo vers and grass seeds were generally in troduced. But where have the clovers come from now, appearing so suddenly and so uni versal in extent ? We cannot tell can you ? but our theory is, that their pre sent appearance in such quantity, mak ing the earth rich and lovely, is the ef fect of the drouths of 1854 and '55. Du ring these seasons, not only the surface of the earth became as dry as a puff ball, but in digging some eight or ten feet scarcely a handful of moist earth could be found. It was then that the secret stores of the earth were called on to sup ply the enormous evaporation from the surface. The moisture from below came up, bringing with it minerals in its way, and among them something -perhaps the sulphate of lime having an affinity for clover seeds and put them into ac tive condition; they germinated and grew and covered the earth with their foliage, fragrance and flowers. If this theory be a plausible one or if it is not drouths have their office to perform as well as winds and showers and storms. Indeed, we have no doubt of the fact ; and though they wasted our fields, and the water-courses were dry, and cattle went weary and thirsty to their parched valleys, and returned to their heated stalls hollow and thin, yet they were carrying on the operations of that wise and Omnipotent Power who al ways knows what is best It is our theory that the same causes that is, the introduction of mineral sub stance from below that ruined so many wells after those drouths, and that con taminated the Cochituate water, whereby tens of thousands were deprived of tlie pure beverage, bring this abundance of clover, and may feed innumerable other plants for years to come, for the benefit of bph man and beast. We cannot now pursue the sues tions that crowd npon us, but some of our learned and observing correspondents, may do the agricultural world, at least, a lavor, by giving the subject 6ome in vestigation. On the other hand, there is another class of cows naturally disposed to turn sUll their food into the pail Turn a cow of this kind into rich grass along witn we above, and she will rather get poorer ev ery day, if the milk is taken from her; while her plump and siee nvu ing in weight. The former will consume greatly more grass and water uwu m klter, returning for it, in, proportion, a; still greater quantity of milk, but interior in quality. In town dairies, when fed on sour grains, distillers' wash, &C-, the quan tity sometimes yielded is almost incredi ble. When such is the case, however, life is generally short, especially if cows are in a low state at calving, iicnce ine reason why dairymen purchase near- calves of this class in good condition. The above two classes may be called extremes between which there is a mean cows which if turned into a rich field of grass along with the other, would keep themselves in good condition and give a medium quantity of milk, the quality de pending npon the richness of the food.

We begin to think this can be done, We were yesterday on the grounds of one of our best horticulturists, and saw the application, and have some faith in its success. Our friend thinks there is no chance for mistake about its efficacy. He informed us that he applied it last year, after the curculio had begun its ravages and that it not only saved those which were unstung, but many of the plums on which the insect had left its card, healed up and ripened well. The liquid "enters the opened wound and de stroys the egg. This is the only remedy he had ever found to avail against this slippery enemy of one of our best fruits His recipe is, one pound of unslaken lime, six pounds of salt one barrel of wa ter. The mixture is to be applied with a common garden syringe. If one applica tion is not sufficient, repeat it, A single application answered with him last year. No time is to be lost, as the young plums are already set, and the enemy has begun to show himself. If the syringe is not to be had, sprinkle on the liquid in some other way. The mixture is cheap and easily applied, and every man, who has a plum tree should try it. This is the most philosophical remedy we have yet seen suggested, and we commend it, with more confidence than most things, to the notice of fruit growers. If it answers our expectations it will be worth millions to the country. American Agriculturist. From the New England Farmer. GRANITE BOWLDERS. A Practical Way to Remove them. Many ingenious theories have been aduced, as to the time when, and the man ner how, these fragments of granite stones were scattered over the New Eng land States, and many othejr parts of the world. Some geologists think they were bro't at the time of the flood ; frozen to large pieces of ice, as we often see small stones m the ice of our rivers. From the di rection of the various strata of the earth, they argue that a drift has sometimes swept over it, from north-west to south east, and at that time, the bowlders were taken from their parent quarries, and scattered over the land. In corrobora tion of this hypothesis, is the well-known fact that granite bowlders are found in large quantities to the south-east of quar ries of that stone. But it is of little consequence to the farmer whose arable lands are encum bered with these bowlders, whether this or other theories be true or false. He wants to understand a practical way of removing them. The following is a cheap and expeditious method of breaking them, when large. First, remove all the earth from around them, as low as tbe bottom of the bowl der ; this being done, kindle a fire npon its top, or side, as is most convenient In a short time, thin scales of the stone will be detached under the fire ; these must be removed, and the fire kept burning. The heat expanding the stone and convertin it - . me moisture it contains into steam will open one or more seams ; now with a sharp crow-bar, the seams are widened by well-directed and energetic blows, and in a short time the mammoth bowlder is broken into pieces that may be easily re moved. This method is much cheaper, requires less skill, and is less dangerous than blas ting. Coarse and refuse wood, of little value, may be used. Any man can do the work, tending from six to ten fires at a time, and will find it hard but exciting business. Do not throw water ppon the stone at all, but keep np the fire, and you wiu not lau of success.
