TWENTY YEARS AGO.
llow wondrous are the changes, Jim, Since twenty.years ago, When gals'wore woolen dresses, Jim, And boys wore pants of tow ; When shoes were made of oalf-skin, And socks of homespun wool, And children did a half-day’s woidc Before the hour of school. The gixlc todk music lessons, Jim, Upon the spinning wheel. And practiced late and early, Jim, On tho spindle swift and.red!, The boys would ride barebacked to mill, A dosen miles or so. And hurry off before ’twas d%y, Some twenty years ago. The people rode to meeting, Jim, In sleds instead of sleighs:; And wagons rode as easy. Jim, As buggies now a-days ; And oxen answered well for teams. Though now they’d he too slaw.; For people lived not half so fast Some twenty years ago. O, Well do I remember, Jhn, That Wilson’s patent stove, That father bought and ipaid for Jim, In cloth the gals had wove ; And how the neigbors wondered When we got the thing to go ! They said 'twould burst and kill us all, Some twenty years ago. The RunreeTler and the Devil. Legendary lone there is that tella of men who sold themsetoes 4* the devil in order to secure some life ambition. Such a story is now floating in newspaperdom of a rum seller proposing a co-partnership with his Satanic Majesty. It is of the tenor fol lowing : “Dear Sir:—I have opened apartments fitted up with all the enticements of luxury for the sale of rum, brandy, gin, wine, beer and all their compounds. Our object though different, can be host attained by united action. I, therefore, propose a co partnership. All I want of men is their money. All else shall be yours. Bring the industrious, the sober, the respectable, and I will return them to you drunkards, paupers and beggars. Bring me the child, and I will dash to earth the dearest hopes of father and mother. Bring me the father and mother, and I will plant discord between them, and make them a curse and reproach to their chil dren. Bring me the young man and I will ruin bis character, destroy his health, shorten his life, and blot out the purest and highest hopes of youth. Bring mo the mechanic or the laborer, and his own money—the hard-earned fruits of his toils—shall be made paint poverty, vice and ignorance in his once happy home. Bring me the warm-hearted sailor, and I will send him on a Ice shore, and make shipwreck of all fond hearts forevermore. Bring me the professed follower of Christ, and I will blight and wither every devo tional feeling of his heart. I will corrupt the ministers of religion, and defile the purity of the church. Bring me the patronage of the city and of the courts of justice—let the magis trates of the State and of the Union be come my patrons-—let the law-makers themselves meet at my table and partici pate in violations of law, and in the name of law they shall become a hissing and a by-word in the streets. Bring me, above all, the moral, respec table man. If possible bring me the mod erate temperance man, though he may not drink, yet his presence will countenance the pretext under which our business must be masked. Bring him to our store, oyster saloons, eating-houses and hotels, and the more timid of our victims will en ter without alarm.” RUMSELLER. W hat is your Daughter 1 making ol f You aro very careful of her dress ; you attend personally to its purchase and fit. You go with her to see that her foot is nicely gaitered, and you give your milliner special instructions as to the make and be comingness of her bouuet, but do you ever ask yourself what is she thinking about? In other words do you know anything at all of her inner life? Many who are es teemed most excellent mothers, arc as ig norant on this all-important point as if they had never looked upon their daugh ters’ faces. They exact respectful obedi ence, aud if the young crcatureyields it, and has no need of a physician's immediate service, they consider their duty done. Alas! what a fatal mistake ' These are the mothers who, never having invited the confidence of the young hearts, live to see it bestowed anywhere and every where but in accordance with their wishes. Is it, can it be enough to a mother worthy the name, to be satisfied that her daugh ter’s physical wants are cared for ? What of that yearning, hungry soul, that is cast ing about here and there, for something to satisfy its questions. ,(5h, give me a thought sometimes of this. When she sits there by the fire or by the window, musing, sit down by her and love her thoughts out of her. Cast that fatal •* dignity ” to the winds, which has come between so many creatures and the heart to which they should lie nearest in these important form ing years. “ Respect is good in its place but when it freezes up your daughter’s soul-utterance—when it sends her for sym pathy and companionship to chance guides what then? A word, a loving, kind word at the right moment—no mind can over estimate its importance. Remember this wheu you see the sad wrecks of woman hood about, and amid the sweeping waves of life’s cares and life’s pleasures, whatso ever else you neglect, do not fail to know what that young daughter of yours is think ing about!" -—m — *arT he reason why some people know not their duty on great occasions, is that they will not take the trouble of doing their duty on little occasions. !

Davis, one of the five Uiterary Editresses of the Iuka (Miss.) Mirror, thus talks to the “gay and festive” ones: Never think a lady dead In love with you, because she chances, occasionally, to smile graciously- on you. Remem ber every woman lias more or less co quetry in her nature, and that she may probably mean nothing more by her gracious smile, than to induce you to declare yourself to he her devoted lov er, that she may add your name to her list of conquests. After taking a drink, never sit so near a lady that she will he compelled to inhale the nauseating fumes of liquor.
