I want a wife, To cheer my life, Ixarc not if she's minus beauty ; So I but find That she is kind, And knows and practices her duty. 4 I want a wife, Averse to strife, 'A 'gentle, unaffected creature ; One who can pass A looking-glass, Sam stopping to survey each feature. I want a wife With vigor rife, Whose nerves are never in a fiutlcr, Who will not roam But stay at home, And brew, and bake, and make the butter. I want a wife, i Who, through her life, Was never known to have a flirt ; Who'll bring to mo A recipe To keep the buttons on a shirt.

Indeed, it is in the as many inhabitants. Tho two main j streets are parallel, and run along the foot f of the mountain. Narrower streets run from the wharves up the mountain, cross- ing both the principal streets, one of which is about thirty feet higher than the other, The lower of these is almost as broad as Broadway, and infinitely cleaner. The houses on it are well built; most of them have two stories, with shops on the ground floor. On the cross street which starts from our wharf, and above both the prin- , cipal streets, stands a temple, which has been assigned to us for our daguerreotype ! onniiitno Jt cAmnmnilg n cnlpnftwl . nrn!Snfir.t nf the eitv and harbor. A lit- j. . r j tie to tho west of this cross street is an- other, which seems to be the Fifth avenue of Hakotade. The manner of building Ireminds one very strongly of Switxer- jland. A flat projecting roof is covered , ,uu i.:..i., c. tA poles, with stones laid upon them; broad galleries run quite around the upper story; before the door is a little wooden porch; this, toe, with projecting gable, which, as weJ1 ag pilIar tj)afc aupport 5tj are 0r Ii r t't- .l -ii 1 J I -v - ,37 toise-shells and cranes carry the day.

I M rr 1 and listen to the rude and profane speech- ' es which proceed from crowds of boys, who ought, at such times, to be under the 1 Home root, 1'arents do not realize tne PO which rests upon them in these matters. They forget that the fu- ture character of their children is almost entirely under their control. We believe ' that in most cases the parent may mould ( the character of his child as he will, and 1 if, when the child arrives at manhood, he c j t . , is .1 source of sorrow and disgrace to the parent, the only consolation which the! parent can obtain, is that it is his or her own work. Iho parent may, even in a j village such as this, select the intimate companions of his children. Fie should, at least, know the character of those with ' whom they associate on terms of intimacy. j There are children whose very compan- , ionship is pollution. You may as well expect that your children may roll in the mud without being bedaubed, as that . they may mingle with bad boys, as com- 1 panions, and not be in some degree t debased. Boys out at Night. I have been an uuaci vcr, yes i am a Hympaiiuzing lover . ot boys. 1 like to see them happy-, cheer i. ... j ful' gleesome. Indeed lean hardly un- derstand how a high-toned, useful man can be the ripened fruit of a boy who had not enjoyed a full share of the glad privileges due to youth. But while I watch with a very jealous eye all rights and customs which infringe upon the this subiect. tiermifc t he r snno indn hren. j i i - n cies which are almost certain to result in their demoralization, if not in their total ruin ; and among the habits which I have observed tending most surely to ruin, I know of none morerominent than that of parents permitting their sons to be iu the streets after nightfall. It is ruinous to their morals in all instances, they ac quiro under the cover of night, an un- street after nightfall that the boys prin cipally acquire the education of the bad, aud capacity for becoming rowdy, disso- lute and criminal men. Parents, should, in this particular, havo a rigid aud iuflex ible rule, that will not permit a son, un- der any circumstances whatever, to go , into the streets after nightfall, with a ( view ot engaging in out-door sports, or j to meet other boys tor social chance oc- cupation. A right rule ot this kind, in- variably adhered to, will soon deaden the desire for such dangerous practices, Boys should be taught to have pleas- ures nrniinrl the fnmilv eentre fjirile in reading, in conversation, and in ouiet - i i amusements. Boys are seen in the strcts after nightfall, behaving in a manner cn- tirely destructive of all good morals. bathers and mothers keep your children homo at night and sec that you take :0 t i.n.nD vO., attractive, and profitable to them ; and above all, with a view of their secur- ity from future destruction, let them not become, while forming their characters for so accustomed to disregard the moral sense ot shame as to openly vio- laiu mu uuuuuuc-uuy in eireet, pastimes l.i. iL.

Well, you mustprovo your love by , ooeying ner always. As soon as a boy thinks he is too old to obey his mother, scorns her counsels, smokes scgars, runs with fire companies, I htands at corners making remarks on all c m m who pass, then it is all up with him. I would not think much of him, but pity him and think of his poor mother, bia l -i 11 t 1 1 1 wasted youth and unhappy old age. Many a ruined man looks back to tho time when he first disobeyed his mother, w when hc wa3 tempted to do wrong,-as tho steppinc-stone to all his misery. If you have moral courage, you will never fear to be called a coward. The real coward is he who disobeys his mother from fear of ridicule. Selling- Dry Goods. People generally think that it is a very easy matter to stand behind a counter and retail dry goods; but a weeks expe rience in the business would convince tho cleverest man, that it is much more diffi cult and laborious than the task of turn ing a grindbtone twelve hours per diem. The office of salesman embodies, in its duties, necessity for the shrewdness of a politician, the persuasion of a lover, tho politeness of a Chesterfield, the patience of a Job, and the impudence of of s pick pocket. There are salesmen who mako it a point never to lose a customer. One of the gentlemen who is in a store in Chatham street, not long since, was called to show a very fastidious and fashionable lady, who ''dropped in whilo going to Stewarts's," some rich silk cloak ing. Every article of this kind was ex posed to her view the whole store was ransacked nothing suited. The costly was stigmatized as trash everything was common and not fit for a lady. Sho guessed fche would go to Stewart's. The salesman pretended to be indignant. "Madam,'' said he, in a tone of injured innocence, I have a very beautiful and rare piece of goods a case which I di vided with Mr. Stewart, who is my brother-in-law, but it would be useless to show it to you it is the only piece in the city." "Oh, allow me to sec it," she asked, in an anxious tone, and continued, "I had no intention of annoying you, or of dis paraging the merits of your wares." The salesman, who was now watched in breathless silence by his fellow-clerks, proceeded, as if with much reluctance. and with expressions of fear that it would be injured by getting tumbled, to display an ancient piece of vesting, which had been lying in the store for five years, and was considered to be unsaleable. Tho lady examined and liked it much. That was a piece of goods that was worthy to be worn. How much was it a yard? "Twenty-two shillings." "O 1 that is very high." "There' exclaimed he, beginning to fold it up, "I know you would say that.'' "btay! stay ! don t be m so great a i hurry," she cried 'Til give you twenty ! ei.;ii;.,, ' "Madara you insult me again." "Cut me off yards, and vou can make up the deduction on some velvet : which I require for trimmings," almost j entreated the fair shopper. The sales- man, alter much persuasion, sold the lady the vesting for which they had in vain sought to get five shillings per yard, ac the price above indicated. The profits of the sale on vesting and velvet amount ed to $33 ! out of which the clerks were to be told. The lady had her cloak made, and one or two of her friends, de lighted with it, bought the, rest of the vesting at the same price.
