The reader will; notice that each line is a quo tution from some one of the standard au thors of England ami America, tho .result' of a year's laborious search among the voluminous writings of thirty eight leading poets of tho past and present. Tho number of each line refers to its au thor below : The Is and trated, of any Is Ritters, Ihy*> auTHtnd public. tion This is LIFE. 1 Why all this toil for triumphs of an hour? 2 Life's a short Summer, 3 Hr turns we catch the vital breath and die— 4 The cradle uud the tomb, alas ! so nigh. 5 To be is better far than not to be, G Though ail mau's life may seem a tragedy. 7 Rut light cures speak when mighty griefs are dumb, 8 The bottfiin is but shallow whence they come, fate is but tiw common fate of all ; 1« Cnmiuglcd joy« here no 11 Nature to each allots its proper sphere ; 12 Fortune makes folly her peculiar care. 13 Custom does often reason overrule, And'lirow a cruel sunshine 12 Live well; how long a llower. same two the very Liver, which of of 9 Y befall. a fool ; • short, permit to 14 Heaven ; 1G They who forgive most shall be most forgiven. 17 Sin may be clasped so close wo cauuot sec ils fact— 18 VRê intercourse where virtue has no place. 19 Then keep each passion down, however dear, 20 Thou pendulum betwixt u smile nud tear. . 21 Her sensual shares let faithless Pleasures lay, 22 With craft and skill, to ruin and betray, 2$ Hour ngt too high to fall, but stoop to rise ; 24 We masters grow of all that we despise. 23 Oh, then J renounce that impious self esteem ; 2Ut Riclics have win^s, and grandeur is a dream. 2i Think not ambition wise because 'tis brave; 28 The path* of glory lead but to the grave. 29 What is ambition ?

A Diamond Story. Nearly a century ago, an old gentleman iu'tlic lower part of Virginia, picked up a stone to throw at a rabbit ; it glittered in the siln, and the old man concluded to take it home for his children to play with. Shortly affer, tho family physician hap pened to see the stone, and offered six dol lar* for it, but tho family would not sell it. Subsequently a trusty friend about to visit Europe was given the stone, and upon reaching London, ho consulted a noted ed lapidary named Nox, who after examining it declared that 'all America is uot able to buy that stone.' A Jew, whom the trusty friend consul ted afterwards, warned him uot to come out with that stone again without guard, as he would he robbed were it knowu he had it. Tho friend returned home and de livered up the gem Some time afterward a party of Marylanders offered for the stone in lands and negroes tho equivalent of one hundred thousand dollars, and was refused. The old uiaudied, and the stone lus remained in the family for several gen erations, and recently, so the story it came into the possession of Hr. Dough erty, of Mcchanicsburg, Pennsylvania, wose children arc legal heirs. It is claimed to be a diamond of first quality, and weighs four hundred carats, whilst that of the Rajah of Mattau, said to bo tho largest in the world, weighs only three hundred and sfatty -seven carats. Tho stone lias been sent away to pass the scrutiny of thc*blcst scientific men of the country, and the Har risburg State Guard, which is responsible for the story, of which the above is au out line, soys, "there is no reason to believe but that America can boast of the largest diamond in the world." or to in runs, An Kasy Method to Have Healthy Fruit Trees. — Au experienced fruit jrrowçr, who possesses a beautiful orehiird near the Niagara River, Western New Lark. lias used one simple method with j ' I success. He takes lye frum leached ashes mixes a little grease with it, heats it quite warm, und with a syringe throws it up , into all parts of tho trees, branches and trunk. It will effectually kill all catcr ■plllars, all kinds of worms that are either infesting the trees iu nests or running over the hark. Trees treated in this man ner were exceedingly healthy, beautiful, vigorous in appearance, possessed a smooth, glossy bark, and boro the beat apples of tho country. The remedy is easy and cheap. Not a miss—A rich, handsome widow. A loan-some place—A pawnbroker's of lice. Pillors of the Constitution—Quack Doc tors. Current literature—Books in the run ning brooks. Wilson, the celebrated vocalist, was up set one day iu a carriage near Edinburgh. A Scotch paper, after recording the acci dent, said, "Wc arc happy to state that lie was able to appear the following even ing in three pieces !" A raptured writer inquires : " What is there under Heaven more humanizing, or if wo may use the term, more ungeliziug, than a fino black eye in a lovely woman 7" Why, a clear, toulfull, heavenly blue, of course.
