TEE MAIDEN'S PRAYER.
BY J. 0. WHITTIER. She rose from her delicious sleep And put away her soft brown hair, And in a tone as low and deep As love's first whisper, breathed a prayer; Her snow white hands together pressed, H1er blue eyes sheltered in the lid, The folded linen on her breast, Just swelling with the charms It hid. And from her long and flowing dress, Escaped a bare and snowy foot, Whose steps upon the earth did press Like a new snow-flake, white and mute; And then from slumbers soft and warm, Like a young spirit fresh from heaven, She bowed that light and matchless form And hunb!y prayed to be forgiven. Oh, God, if souls unsoiled as these Needl daily inercy froin thy throne; If she upon her bended knees, Our holiest and purest one; She with a face so clear and bright, Wc deein her soine stray child of light; If she with those soft eyes in tears, Day after day in her young years, Must kneel and pray for grace from Thee, What far, far deeper neel have we! How hardly, it she win not ileaven, Will our wild errors be iorgivcn! WORTH THE EXPERIMENT, TELL YOUR WIFE. Yes, the only way is to tell your wife just how Von stand. Show her your bal ance-sheet. Let her look over the items. You think it will hurt her feelings. No, it will not do any such thing. She has been taught to believe that moniey was with yu, just as little boys think it is with their fath. ers,-terribly hard to be reached, yet in exhaustible. She has had her suspicions already. She has gussed you were not so prosperous as you tdked. But you have so befogged your money atifiirs, that she poor thing ! knows nothing about them. Tell it right to her, that you are living outside of your income. Take her into partnership, and I'll warrant you'll never regret it. There may be a slight shower at first, but that's natural. Let her see your estimate, when you come home again she will show you that you have put her bills too high. True, she had rather a costly bonnet last winter, but it is "just as good as ever - a few shillings will provide it with new strings and refit it a little-the shape, she says, is almost ex actly as they wear them now." And you will be surprised to see how much less ex pensive she can make your own wardrobe. She will surprise you with a new vest-not exactly familiar, somehow, looking as if in another shape you had seen it before,-yet new as a vest, and scarcely costing a dollar where you had allowed five. Old cravats will experience a renovation in her hands. coming out so rejuvenated, that nobody but those who are let into the secret would sus pect that they are old friends in new shapes. The dressing gown that you were going to buy-out of' what foargott.-n chest she has gathered the material you cannot imagine biut there it is, comfortable and warm, and just the thing that vou wanted for tho long winter evenings that are comning on as fast as the almanac will let them. You will find a wonderfuil change in her tastes and appetite. Whereas, she always fancied what was a little out of' season, or just comning inte~ market-tiow if' beef is dear, she thinks boiled mutton is delightful -as tender as chicken. If' lambs rise, and fish are plenty, she thinks a 'striped bass, or a fried sole good occasionally'. Before you have thought much about it. you will findl yourself spending most oif your evening~s too, so full of Domestic en. joyment, anmd fireside pleasures, that you will look with wonder on the record of' last * year's expenses, and marvel that you found time or relish for the costly entertaiuients that seriously taxed your pockr t. If too, like many, yourx outgoes threatten to exceed your incom'es, he sure and tell your wife of it. Not in a tone or mnanner that will lead her to think you don't want her to buy what is really necessary for winter, lbut just as if you wanted a counsellor in the day of your trouble. And if' she does not come up. heart and soul, and most successfully, to your relief; put me down for no prophet. F~Axmy FERN oN DRES.-It is my opin ion, after all that is said, that women dress much more with an eye to their owvn sex, than to the other. Xilhat muan, unless he be a dry goods merchant, knows whether a wo man wears Iloniton or cotton lat e ? Whait man else knows the value of the dainty handkerchiefs with whi';h ladies so ostenta tiously polish their pretty noses ? What -man else knows, or cares to know, the val ue of the camel's hair shawl. spread so care * fully over their shoulders : By the rood ! not one. But the delighted peacock posses sor rejoices that ever-y feminine eye which rests upon01 it, computes its value to a frac tion. Yes-.women dress much more for each other's eyes than men ! I never knew i man, whose opinion wvas worth asking, who did not prefer to see a pretty woman (and I imagine the most demure of 'era do Riot look long at any other,) unostentatiously and modestly dressed ; .and I niever' saiw a pretty woman'who did not look prettier in the plainest home dress than in her most elabo rate adorinents. lint alas ! for plain home dresses-wvhere are they ? Where is the pretty de laine, and neat calico, none too good'for little climbing feet (now fashion banished 1) Echo antswers--where? THEu PRLE-EMINENeE OF WoMEN.-Eveni after death, nature respects her inherent modesty, for a drowned woman floats on her face, and a drowned man flouts on his back. The noblest part of a hum~ian being is the hoad; but thme man's head is liable, to bald ness; woman is never bald. The man's face is of'ienl made so by a most odious bear-d, .and so covered with sordid hair that it is scarcely to be dustimnguishied from the faice of thme wild beast ! ini womuan, on the other hand, the face always remains pure and de cent. For this reason women were, by the laws of' the twelve tables, forbidden to rub their cheeks, lest hair should grow and obscure their blnshing modesty. But the mnost evi dent proof of' the innate purity of' the fe male sex is, that a woman iaving once washed is clean, and if she wash in second water. will not soil it ; but that a man is never clean ; though he should wash in ten succes sive waters, he will cloud and infect them all-L~f of Agr fppa. A s enthusiastic Spiritualist, at the Broadway meeting last Friday night, was heard to declare, in private conversation, that he had seen and con versed with a man who died upon the coast of Africa fifteen thousand years ago. "I have not the slightest doubt of it," said he; " I saw him just as plainly as I see you ; I conversed with him, and he declared to me positively that le died upon thme coast of 4f ua fithou san1( years ago 5Qs I am eure i POETS LOVEPUIN WOMEN. A poet, who writes in the Golden Era of San Francisco, says: We like homely women. We have al ways liked them. We do not carry the pe. culiarty far enough to include the hideous or positively ugly; for since beauty and money are the only capital the world will recognize in women they are more to be pitied than admired; buti we have a chival ric, enthusiastic regard for plain women. We never saw one who was not modest, unassuming, and sweettempered, and seldom came across one who was not virtuous, and had not a good heart. Made aware early in life of their want of beauty by the slighted attentions of the opposite sex; vanity and affectation never take root in their hearts; and in the hope of supplying attractions which a capricious nature has denied, they cultivate the graces of the heart instead of the person, and give to the mind those te coiplishiients which the world so rarely appreciates in a woman, but which are more lasting, and, in the eyes of men of sense, more highly prized than all personal beauty. See them in the street, at home, or ill the church, and they are always the same; and the smile which ever lives upon the face is not ftrced there to faseinate, but as the spon. taneous sunshine reflected from a kind heart -a flower which takes root in the soul and bloons upon the lips, inspiring respect in Stead of passion, emotions of admiration in stead of feelings of sensual regard. Plain women make good wives, good mothers, cheerful homes, aid happy husbands, and we never see one but we thank Heaven that it has kindly created women of sense as well as beauty, for it is indeed seldom a fe male is found possessing both. To homely women we therefore lift our' "title" in res pect; the world will extend the same cour tesy to beauty. San Francisco has but flew plain women, but all such we intend to make lile.subscribers to the Golden Era, inl view of their worth to society. ONE*S MoTnER.-Aromid the idca of one's mother the mind clings with fond affection. It is the first dear thought stamped upon our inftnt hearts when soft and c-apable of re ceiving most profound impressious, and all the after feelings are more or less light in| comparison. Our passions and our wilfull ness nmy lead us from the object of our filial love; we may become wild, headstrong and angry at her counsels or opposition; but when death has stilled her monitory voice. and nothing but caln memory remains to recapitulate her good deed, afTetion. like a flower beaten to ite ground by a rude storm, raises up her head and -smiles anidst her tears. Around that idea, as we have said, the mind clings %% ith fond affiction; and even when the earlier period of our loss forces memory to be silent. ihney takes the place of rememnbrance, and twines the inuiige of our departed parent with a gar. land of graces., and beauties, and virtues which we doubt not she possessed.

The bed stands about thirty inches from the floor, and is the most convenient of all Presses to make ready the forn on. It is adapted to jobbing or book work, as. well as newspaper, and will register as well as any other Cyiinder Press. It requires to work it, a man to turn the fly wheel, and a boy to feed the sheets. The inking Apparatus is very complete, and diiers from the apparatus used in Cylinder Presses generally, being more like that used in the Power l'laten Pre:sses. Two rollers pass over the form twice to each impression, taking ink for each sheet. A Press of this description for newspapr-r and jobbing, bed 44 by 28J incies, with roller mould, roller stocks, blanket, flying and registering appa ratus,.&c., complete, will ie furnished for $500. If intended fur book work chiefly, an extra ink foun tain will be furnished-fur i'20. The Press, fly wheel, &c., will weigh about 2000 pounds. The sides, &c., are iron. Length of frame, seven feet; height to rront edge of feed-board. three feet six inches. Any size imade to order.

The beds will take chases their full breath, and within two inches or the l.nuth. TERMS.-One half cash; one half note, four months, with approved security ; or 2j per cent. discount for cash. For inure than four years the inventor of the above Press has Ieen improving it, working it all the while, and ascertaining with great care and expense, the best mode of carrying out all the de tails, and he now flatters himself he has succeeded in perfecting it. Within the past year important improvements have been made. No Press will leave his premises without being thoroughly tested, and without it performs to the entire satishetion of the purchaser.
