The Whole Business of Life. The amiable and gifted Jane Taylor, Hie lm.! tune she took un her pen it was on the dav preceding her death she wrote as follows; Oh. mvi'eat friends, if you knew what thniK'hts 1 huve now, you would see as I do, that the whole buniness of life is preparing for death." n ..... . How much lime is spent in preparing lo live? How little in preparing to dief Ohh ho had lived more than fifty years said, as the hand cf death was upon him, "1 have all my days been getting reauy 10 live, and now must die." Would men but spent! as much lime in pre paring to die, aa they spend preparing to live, the physical agonies oi uenin wouiu nut si ne queiilly be heightened by the agonies of de snair. "The whole uusiness oi me is io prepme ioi leath." Thousands of death beds death beds of rejoicing and deal h-beds of despair have borne witness to tins trmn. i ne resuer will bear witness to it perhaps at an early llfll'.

To he sure (and as the same authority tells us,) uninterrupted happiness, no man ca or ouclitlo expect. Life is no sinecure: fruits do not spring spontaneously irom the earin aa Uiey did in the irarden of Eden; nor doee manna t'ron from the Clouds as it did in the wilderness. But as a scheme of solid comfort matrimony affords to well regulated minds a ouble share of pleasure in prosperity, and a solace and support in sorrow and adversity. , The Fiddle. No mart who is not a fiddler can be fully aware of the virtues that reside in a fiddle. To the majority of mankind, the thing ia but a vibratory machine of thin wood, furnished with tightened airings fur Hie production oi musical sounds; and the non fiddling portion of lbs community are apt io entertain a dcro ga'oiy notion both of riddles and fiddlers, as though there were something ' nnaceordant with the dienily of human nature in the pro duciion of melody by shaking Kit elbow and twiddlinf the fingers. Not that they by any means obiect I J the result produced, or refuse to listen to the harmonious combination of sounda which horsehair and rosin elicit, or refrain at all times from responding to the in vitation of the music by tripping through the mazes of the delightful dance but they would not be seen to operate themselves; they could not submit to be themselves the fiddlers.

Most Laughable Incident. A most laughable story ia told by an Enpligli correspondent of the New York Times, of whal occurred a abort timo since on one of the rail ways running out of London. We thought we were once witnesses and participants of a droll adventure on one of the New York railroads, when a lot of blood-thirsty Hungarian leeches getting from a jar in which they were confined put themselves promiscuously over the lower limb of 'he passengers, and commenced feed ing, to the great surprise and consternation of all; but the English story is far more ludirous and we intend-spinning it out a little in our own way. It seem that a four -passenger car on the London railroad there were two travelers on the occasion in question. One was a civil, quiet, modest well-behaved gentleman, the other, who sal opposite to him was a lady, 'fat fair, and forty,' wtu was also of modest mein and conduct. The train had hardly commen ced moving when the lady suddenly jumped and with a crimson flash on ber counlen- nce exclaimed: "How dare you?" "Dare what," said the gentlemen in aston ishment. 'Insult me in that manner,' continued the lady, anil swelling with indignation. " I am not aware that I have insulted you n any way, form or manner,' retorted the gen tleman, inuocence'and inquiry depicted in ev ery linament of his countenance. . "Well, don't touch me aeain," continued the lady, "if you do 1 will call the guard.'' The gentleman sat marvelous but silent, wondering what strange conceit hsd got into is fellow travellers bend, when suddenly she sprang up a second time, and in fresh burst ol indication, broke out wah: "1 wul not atand such impudence and in ults. I am a married woman and your coil net is unsuQerable." "But my dent madam, what upon earth has got into your head I whnldo you mean I" '1 mean I will not De - iiir-ulted. You mis lake my character, sir, if you think I will put up with rucli impudence. You are an impu dent good-for-nothing puppy, that iswhat yon re and with flashing eys she resumed bet seat. i The gentleman was still wondering at Hie tranue conduct of the lady, totally uncon scious that he had given her the least cause of offence when suddenly the started up a third time with the ejaculation 'Keep your hands oft. If my husband were here he would pitch you out of the win dow. I will have you arrested the moment the cars atop. Keep your hands off, I say "What hands ? what uo yon mean t you talk like a crazy woman and I believe you are insane, was the response of the bewilder ed gentleman. Let go my legs I" broke from the lady jumping up again, and this lime in a periect frenzy of passion. l uo not know anything about ynurregs, never touched them in my life, never w-nt to touch them. You are crazy as Bedlam; you are a candidate for the first lunatio asylum on the road, 8nd 1 will have yon arrested Hie mo ment the cars stop,' put iu the gentleman with honest indignation. "I will have you arrested for taking sue mipudent liberties will, me," responded th lady, an equal amount of virtuous excitement manifest in her countenance In five minutes more the cars stopped, there was a violent letting down of windows in th car occupied by the two enraged passengers and a bud duett of cries or shouts of "con Jucior. guard, anybody.! this way," followed from the two. "What is the matter?" inqoired the anx ious conductor, as he poked his head into the car in haste. V , , . j -. mis womnn is aa ciozy as o itwi -'" " a March hare take her out!" said the gen tleman. "And this man ha been pinching my legs all Ihe wuy from London, '.he impudentscamp.' retorted the lady, glaiiiig furiously In hia face. A quiet amile came over the face of ihe con ductor, as he remarked that he thought he could explain the matter at issue. Andreach ing his hand under the ladie seat he drew out a live goose which he had placed Ihere a few moment before the train started, not suppos ing that the cor would be occupied. The legs of Ihe aquatic animal had been tied all the while, but he had been amusing himself by pecking away at Ihe lower limbs of the lady. W think that this may b called a new phrase, if not a settle, of the vexed Goose Question. Most Laughable Incident. Pity.

This name, aignifvine Laughing Waler, is given bv the Dacotah Indian to a beautiful water-fall between fort bnelling and bt. An thonv's Falls, in Minnesota Territory. It a favorite custom with the citizens ot bt, Paul, the flourishing capital ofMinnessota.and of strangers visiting that locality, to drive to Fort Sue I Imp. and from thence to bt. Antho oy's Fall, taking Minne ha-ha in their way and to return home by a shoiter and more direct route. Fort snelling is situated upon a bluff al th point where the Minnessota river empties into the Mississippi, aboutseven miles distant from St. Paul.

The rule thus brokeu wi'l never be ac'aiu inaugurated in the North." Of the above Governors several are now holding their offices in defiance of the last ex pressed will of the people of Iheir Slates. It :s:true Governor Pollock was elected in Penn sylvania in 1854, not so much on account of his Fieesoil proclivities as of hi Kuow Noth ing tendencies, but in 1855, at a general election, the people of Pennsylvania ritrrttd their decision of the year before by electing a "Nebraska Democrat" Canal Coinmisioners by eleven thousand majotity over bis Black Re publican opponent, nd choosing a Leg is la lure which elecin! to the Senate of the United State a staunch Nebraska Democrat Ex-Governor Bigler. On account of this last expression of Penn sylvania at the ballot box, we take her out of the Black Republican column and put hcrwi'.n the Democratic States, where she belongs. In W isconsin at the last general election in 1855, the Democrats carried eight of the nine that Bingham will be superceded by a Demo- crat, and tnat Presidential electors win ue I the same party. I Governor Clark, or New Yoik, run In not on, account of the strength of the B ack-Ite- publicans, but solely because the Democrat were divided between Seymoermit! Brownson. The Juurnal'i parly is largely in the minority in the bmptre btate. There has been no election hUd in Iowa since 1$54, but the best informed politicians) do not hesitate to put her down in the Demcr- cratic column.

Up m a review of the whole ground it will be seen that the Democratic cause in the North, which suffered a temporary eclipse in 1854, has been since rapidly gaining the ascen- dancy, and will so n be once more inaugura ted iu power. The rphemeral Abolition ex citement i dying out and fading away, and alt the arts oi politicians cannot prolong it. we make the prediction that more than one-half, if not two-thirds, of the electoral vote of the Free States will be cast for the Democratic cauaidale.-Citi.
