J^cTcct fjoetrg. of In or ies to give away,! don't —• Around tlxe flcnrth At Home. Whatever be our earthly lot, Wherever we may roam, Still to our heart« the brighlsct spot Is round the hearth at home ; The home where we received our birth, ^ The hearth by which we sat, No other spot all the earth Will ever be like that. When winter coming in its wrath Piled high the drifting snow, ! Bfe clustered round the cheerful hearth ^ We watched the firelight glow ; No brighter seemed the ruddy flames Than did our hearts, the while A loviug mother breathed our names With sweet approving smile. When wearied with our eager chase Through many a tangled path, How sweet the dear accustomed place Te take around the hearth ; And still, when by our toil and care We feel ourselves oppressed, Our thoughts forever cluster there, Aud there alone find rest. Bright promise of the rest above, Sweet shelter from the storm, Home, hallowed by a mother's love, Hearth by that love made warm ; Though wildly roared the storm without,! What recked we of the cold, Wlmt place for silly Within that loving fold ? fear or doubt And when some little trouble weighed the childish heart, Till from our brimming eyes it made The gushing teardrops start, now quick before that genial glow, We felt each sorrow cease, And buck the crystal current flow, To flood our hearts with pence. And brighter with the passing years Seems childhood's sweet employ, Anderen sweeter still appears Each well-remembered joy. Around the cheerful hearth at home, ^ When we in childhood sat, No other npot where'er we r Will ever be like that. ij 'ftülit and iiunor. The Rev. Mr. E was preparing his discourse for the next sabbath, stopping occasionally to review what he had writ ten, and erase that which he was disposed to disprove, when he was accosted by his little son, who had numbered but five su mors : "Father, docs God tell 3*011 what to preach ?" "Certainly, my child." "Tlicu what makes you scratch itotfc?" A minister was walking out one [lay, and passed two little boys, one of wnom made a bow. As he turned back he heard the following amusing conversation : y, John, didn't you know that M.r "Wh Parson "Yes, of course I did. "Why did you not make a bow to him?" " Why, mother don't belong to his church." was A Reporter recently lost a first-class item by want of forethought, according to a Boston paper. A young man attempted to jump from a train of cars which waß ap proaching the city, and the Knight of the Pencil, with an eye to business, impru dently requested his name, age, occupation and residence, for an obituary item. The young iuau concluded not to jump. The landlord of a hotel said to a boar der:—"Look e' here! I want you tDpay your hill, aud you must! I have asked you often enough for it, and I tell you now that you don't leave the house until you have paid it." "Good!" said the lodger, "I'll stay with you as long as I live." A constable pursued a thief, who took refuge on a stump in a swamp, and pulled up after him the rail on which he went up. The constable made the following return : "Sightable—conversable—1-non e8t-comc-at-ablc—in swainpum—up stum pum—railo." A man who cheats in small measure is a measureless rouge. If he gives short measure iu wheat, then he is :i rog|uc iu grain. If in whiskey, then he is a rogue in spirit. If he gives a had title to land, then he is a rogue indeed. Josh Billings is not inclined favorably towards fleas. He says : They bile wus than muskctocs, for they bite on a run ; one flea will go all over a man's suburbs in two minits, aud loavo him as freckled tbo measles. I ''Mamma/' said a precocious 1 ttib hoy, who against his will was made to rosk the cradle of his baby brother, "If tho Lord has any more babi you take 'em. ' I don't believe it's any use, this vacci nation," said a Yankee. "I bad a child vaccinated, and be fell out of a window a week arter, and got killed." However strong may be your desire to procure information, never get it through a key-hole. All good educational systems stop that often-sought avenuo. One who claims that tho watering-place hotel where he stops furnishes "leathery" meat is comforted by being told thitt it is "bully." A Western editor thinks that Pojvcrs is a swindler, beennse ho chiseled an unfor unatc Greek girl out of a block of mar «I 1 - le.

Lin U Wlint we Hike It. The following article constitutes the "leader" in a late issuo of the Philadelphia Ledger. It is seldom that we meet with such an article in the editorial columns of our daily journals, or one containing more of sound philosophy than this : One of the most prolific sources of open complaint and secret discontent is the ap parent inequality of the human lot iu life. In proof of this, we arc pointed to the out ward differences so palpable to all. Wealth and poverty, health and sickness, education and ignorunco, ability and feebleness, suc cess and failure, certainly present very op posite appearances ; but that they are cither the fixed and inevitable lot of those who now possess them, or that they are them selves the true elements of life's happiness or misery, are erroneous, though very pre valent ideas. The truth that ought to be impressed on every mind, and especially upon the young, both to prevent repining, and to animate the energies to their fullest capacity, is that life is what tee make it. Two men stand side by side, gazing on the same scene in nature. To one, who has a bright and cheerful disposition, it reveals only beauty and gladness ; while to the other, gloomy and sad, the whole seeue is spread over with a leaden pill. It is our own state of mind that creates for us, cveu Nature herself, and paints the same scene in beauty or in gloom. Still more is our social world what we make it ourselves. The selfish and cold hearted will ever find coldness and selfish ness in others ; the proud will bo treated haughtily, the angry and passionate will receive rudeness and violence, and those who dishonor themselves will be dishonored by others. But society, to the good, the gentle, and the benevolent, is different. Their example wins others to similar vir tues and develops the germs of good, which, though they may bo hidden, yet exist in every heart. From a man's esti mate of society as a whole, we may gain a very fair knowledge of his own charac ter, for as ho is, so will others appear to him. To the pure, all things are pure, because their purity, like the magnet, at tracts the same quality in others ; while the heart that is itself estranged from vir tue, can find none elsewhere. Equally true is it, that our world of circumstances and events is what we our selves make it. The luxuries of wealth, the triumphs of success, the scintillations of genius, and even the blessings of health, may be converted into bitter evils if the well springs of nature aro corrupt ; while the severest trials and temptations can, to a pure aud noble heart, be changed into blessings. The power of trial to harm us does not reside in itself, but in feebleness to resist or to enduro it. Every temptation resisted purifies and elevates the heart, and every suffering rightly borne strengthens our nature. Business life seems to dry up some natures, and lead them away from higher things ; while in others, it creates virtuous independence, manliness, and integrity. 1'leasure to one proves a poisonous draught, while to an other it is a healthful refreshment. Thus life is what we make it. It is not made up, in its intrinsic nature, of the material world, nor of the society in which we move, nor of the external circumstances which surround us. It is our own inter nal character that moulds and fashions all these outward things, and extracts from them the bitter or the sweet that best as similates with itself. These outward cir cumstances contain the essence of both happiness and misery—both good and evil. Happy is the person who can ex tract the sweet and leave the bitter—who can develop the good and extinguish the evil. As the chemist works up the ele ments into the desired condition, and ob tains fresh knowledge from all the diffi culties they exhibit, so in the moral, everything external may be resolved into good by tho patient efforts of man, and all that seems most adverse may be so overcome or endured as to prove a greater blessing than the most apparently favora ble events. This view of life will lead us to put a juster estimate upon the complaints which are so rife among all. If life is what we make it, we must look within and not without for the sources of discontent. We complain of society, of circumstances, of everything external, but in a most lit eral sense they arc all what we mako them. In proportion as we aro indus trious and virtuous shall we be honored and rewarded ; in lovely, we shall be beloved ; nnd even in the most trying situations, and the sorest trials, the main point as to their severity is the spirit in which they are received. Pa tient, faithful endeavor never results in continued unhappiness, and is never ulti raately unsuccessful. Misery chiefly ari ses from insufficient effort and consequent ill-succcss. If then we would find life good, we must fill our hearts with good ness ; if we would have tho world shine brightly upon us, wo must kindle a light in our own souls and cause it to shed a radiance on all around. our own is iu ; in as wo are the a to is is Dvsksteby.—B eat one egg in a teacup, add a teaspoonful of loaf sugar, a tcaspoon ful of ground spice, and fill the cup with milk.
