M.A. DEN1SON. : t ; 'i . . - . , ,, v f'l ant afraid I cannot save poor little Mary Evans,". said Dr. Lisle' to his wife as lie took his Beat at the supper table, Tlicy arc all lmlf distracted over there even Jhe grandmother liiiscoasedto impor triije'iuc about licr herbs an J nostrums, and KhatfiM with tears this morning, that 'twas no use doing anything for Mary, now nhc had heard the death cull." "But her mother what does she pay T asked Sirs. Lisle, her cheek a shade pal as she ppoko u think the child is every thing to her, especially since her father has declared himself an atheist." , She is calm, but suffering intensely. 'I sometimes think,' that could it bo the cause of changing my husband's belief, could spare Mary.' And then her hands ell, and the tears rolled over her thin face and there was anguish in every tear. Poor creature, it will bo a loss indeed.' 'What a beautiful little girl she is,' re maiKou the doctor's wife, the moisture standing in her eyes; 'what eloquence in all her movements ! the fact that she is dumb makes her so interesting. I never could look at her unmoved, as I can at sown children. I was there the other day and she was sitting at her mother's fect talking with those large, luminous eyes. As I went in, she moved back a little, and in conversation, her mother spoke of Mr. Evans. She did not shed tears, and she was talking in very low, subdued tones. I heard a sob, and looking around the lit tic child was sobbing in all the abandon ment of grief. 'It is just so, whenever I ppeak of her father,' said Mrs. Evans, holding the child to her bosom; poor littlo one I by some tieart intuition, sue seems to be aware of Li danger .J What should I do without thee, my dear dumb Mary V 'Suppose you go over,' the doctor sugges ted ; 'Mrs. Evans needs sympathy, and she tells mo she thinks by some yearning glan coa of the littlo ono towards the door, she misses your accustomed visit.' The doctor's wife needed no urging, and together they sought the afflicted family. Mr. Evans was a rich man ; his house iras the most elegant in town ; his name tood in bold relief against a ground-work of silver., 'Ossian Evans,' and at the ring of the bell came troops of servants. Now as doctor Lisle ascended the marblo steps passing into the door, without giving notice. Molly, the nurse of littlo Mary, stood weep, ing in the hall. 'What! is the child worse?' exclaimed the physician, while his wifo ascended to the room above. Just then tho father appeared; his eyes woro red, and his voice husky. He wrung tho doctor's hand, and his tones faltered as ho cried with suppressed anguish, 'oh 1 can't bear it doctor. To lose her thus ? and never, never seo her again ; this, this is agony unutterable.' ,'An agony such as the Christian never feels said tho doctor with emotion, 'but lot mo pass to the child.' 'Stop, doctor-i-bow tell a frantic man ; Aowcan I believe ? Oh ! if I could if I could,' largo drops stood on his forehead, hi 8 eyes glazed and hollow, refused a tear; he respired heavily like a man in the last throes of dessolation. 'But go ! though the stamp is on her forehead ; she is almost gone. Oh, heaven ! that I could believe,' he cried most fiercely as the physician left him; 'this damning doubt that makes my veins curdle as I cherish it, that fills me with delight that is full of horrors ! Oh ! God, if .thcro bo a God, havo mercy on me I1.. Mcanwhilo 'tho little sufferer placidly awaited death.

Loose and uncurled tho waves of fine, golden hair, caressed tho lace fringing of the' pillow. Ilcr eyes, larger and more mysteriously beautiful, were rivited by turns upon her mother's faco and upon things unseen Eave by tho tenants of death beds. Mrs; Lislo sat near tho mother with an arm about her waist; tho doctor stood anxious and soirolvfulon the opposite side, his hands clasped. Onco he made the re mark, 'she does no t suffer.' 'Why does not her father oorao in V ask ed Mrs. Lislo in a gcutlo whispor. 'He says ho cannot see her die;' answer, cd tho mother, her frame quivering with suppressed sobs."

A young man eighteen or twenty years of age, a student iu the University, took a walk one day with a professor, who was com. monly called the student's' friend, such was his kindncs to the young men whose office it was his to instruct While they were now talking together, and tho professor was seeking to lead the conversation to grave subjects, tliny saw an old pair of shoes lying in the path, which they supposed to belong to a poor man who w as at work in tho field and who ad nearly finished his day's work. The young student turned to the profes sor, saying "let us play the man trick ; we will hide his shoes and conceal ourselves bo hind those bushes, and watch to sec his per plexity when he cannot find thcra." "My dear friend," answered tho profes sor, "we must never amuse ourselves at the expense of tho poor. But you arc rich, and you may give yourself a much great er pleasure by means of this poor man. ut a dollar in each shoe, and then wo will hide ourselves." The student did so, and then placed him self, with the professor, behind the bushes close by, through which they could easily watch the laborer, and seo whatever won der and joy he might express. The poor man had soon finished his work and came across the field to the path where he had left his coat and shoes. While he put on his coat, he slipped one foot into one of his shoes, but feeling something hard, he stooped down and found the dollar. As tonishnient and wonder were set upon his countenance, ho gazed upon the dollar turned it around and looked at it again ; then ho looked around him on all sides, but could see no ono. Now he But the monev j in his pocket, and proceeded to put on the other shoe ; how great was his astonish ment when he found another ! His feel ings overcame him and he fell upon his knees, looking up to heaven, and uttered loud and fervent thanksgiving in which he ppoke of his wife, sick and helpless, and hi3 children without bread, whom this timely bounty from Bome unknown hand would save from perishing. The young man stood thcro deeply affect ed and tears fillod his eyes. "Now," said the professor, "are you not much better pleased than if you had play ed your intended trick." "Dearest sir," answered the youth, "you have taught me a lesson now that I will never forget. I feel now tho truth of the words which I never understood, "it's bet ter to give than to receive." We would never approach tho poor but with tho wish to do them cood. TREASURES. No wise man ever wishes to be young er. Self-will is the offering of self indul gence. Liberality consists less in giving much than in giving wisely. The terror of being thought poor has been the ruin of thousands. Wine and passions aro racks oft nsod to extort words from us. The greatest truths aro the simplest, so aro the greatest men. Who cannot keep his own secret, ought not to complain if another tells it. Ho is no mean philosopher who can give a reason for one-half of what ho thinks. . Evory man ought to endeavor to shield others from tho evils he has experienced There is a modesty in pure desires after excellence, which affection can never coun tcrfeit. Wanted to Know.

Owing to the present prospective hig price of wheat, any thing relating to its culture aud increase, can be of interest to our readers; henco we insert tho followin letter from a Pennsylvania subscriber ; Eds. Cultivator : Seeing enquiries made of you in regard to tho spring wheat, cheerfully send to you what I know of it practically. Two years since, my brother living in Illinois, sent me a barrel of flou made from Rio spring wheat, which on tri al I found to bo equal to over 'Double Ex tra from selected wheat." This called my attention to it, and the following winter, on my return from a visit west, I brought homo three bushels for seed, which I sow. ed about tho middle of March, on a corn field, without plowing , having first cutup and burnt the stalks, and harrowed it twice previous to sowing and twice afterwards I sowed the three bushels on two and a half acres, and harvested 47 bushels. On having it flowered, 1 got 27 lbs to tho bush el, and the bread was found to retain its moisture longer than that made from win tor wheat. Tho reputation of spring wheat flour has been greatly injured in eastern markets, by the fact that until within a few years, tho majority of the western mills have been greatly defective ; and to avoid the unpop ularity, my brother, who is a miller, writes me they invariably brand all good spring wheat flour as having been made from win ter wheat. If any of your subscribers should send to their friends west, for this wheat, tell them to gut it from the farmers before it is mixed in market, and get cither tho Rio, Italian or Canada Club, as the Black Sea and Portland are quite inferior to thoso above mentioned. John T. Rusiiton. Lime Water in Bread Making. In bread making the vinous fermenta tion sometimes passes . into the acid, and thus rendering the bread sour and disa greeable Liebig has lately performed a scries of experiments to improve the prep aration of bread, from which he comes to the conclusion that the only effective and innocuous means of improving the qualities of wheat and rye bread, is lime water. In making dough, ho advises ono pint of clear lime water to bo used for every five pounds of flour. The lime water is first added to the flour, after which a sufficient quantity of common water is added to work the whole into good common dough, the leaven being fixed with the water. The lime water prevents the bread from becoming sour, and is a healthy ingredient. Lime water can be prepared by stirring some quick lime in a vessel containing pure cold water, then allowing tho sediment to settle. The clear is then to be poured off, and kept in bottles for use. No care is re quired respecting tho quantity of lime, and no more. Those who uso saleratus in tho raising O of bread aro recommended to cease its use, and employ pure baker's yeast and a little lime water. Our bones arc composed of the phosphate of lime, and those who uso fine flour, re quire for their health a littlo more lime than is contained in their food. Cream of tartar and carbonate of soda are far inferi or to common yeast for making healthy bread. More cream of tartar, carbonate of soda, and saleratus are used in Boston in making bread, in ono day, than aro used in all Eu ropo in ono year. It is tho cxtravagaut use of these arti cles that is the cause of our young men and young women having decayed teeth. In France, in the largo cities, no ono makes what we in this country call family bread ; henco tho government is very strict in their laws regulating the manufacture of bread by the bakers. Officers are appoint ed to keep a strict watch over them and if detected in nsing, or having in their ba keries ammonia, saleratus, or carbonate of soda, they are subject to a heavy fine. Wo should havo such laws in this city; then those of us who Lave to patronize the bakers, would find the staff of life a much better support than it is. Botton Trans cript. ','..' RW An agricultural friend, who return ed from Franco lately informs us that tho farmers thcro Lave discovered that by leav. ing a portion of their potatoes intended for seed, in tho ground during tho winter, and replanting in the spring is a romedy against the continuance of tho various dis eases to which the potatoo of late years has been subjected. It will be reccollectcd that process was first recommended in this country by Mr. Roberta. Wo havo tried this experiment by leaving potatoes in the ground last year, mulching them slightly during the winter with a brush. When we dug them in tho spring, wo found the potatoes porfect and very solid, and have planted them along side others, kcptlntho cellar during winter. Tho growth of the crop gives fair evidence of the superiority of tho seed left in tie ground, and from pros ont nppoarances, our experiment, lacked by the result claimed by Robert and by tho farmers, is likely to sustain the recommcn dation of tho Farmers Club of the Ameri can Institute for tho trial of this plan, ud, those of tho Agricultural prcNT.who at tempted to laugh it down at the time of its publication will jbe- able to review their jokes with soma jprofit to their readers. Younystown True American. The Effect of Cold on Farm Animals The Peru (Illinois) Chronicle of tho 7th iust., learns from a farmer who resides on the south ; tide of the Illinois river, some particulars of tho storm on the 20th ult His cattle, thoiijrh they were enclosed within a circle of straw stacks and hay stacks, were so much suffocated with the driving snow blast, that they refused to cat. The snow was driven between the hairs, and coming in contact with tho skin, aud wait for a moment molted, then frozen, until the whole covering of tho animals, seemed one unbroken armor of ice, which did not disappear on many for four days after. The snow melting on their fore heads and running down, foimcd huge icicles that passed down over their face, and reached far below the nose, giving "thoin the appearance of the beast with tho len horns in many instances tho broad sheets of ice falling over, their eyes, blindfolded them effectually. Their nostrils wore fil led with frozen snow ttat Lad been driven into them by tho violence of tho wind. Ilia barn-yard chickens wore many of them frozen, and what is singular, in nearly ev ery caso they wcro fouud with their bills as wide apart as they could bo sundered and filled the mouth with solid ice. He has driven his' teams and cattle over fen ces, the snow being on a level with them, and so compact as to sustain a heavy load. The Collins Line Appropriation- -Cor- ruption of Congress. Tho New York Tribune, in tho course of a strong article denouncing the passage, by Congress, of a law giving to tho Collins Lino an immense lomts from the public treasury forcibly says : '(Now, if Congress had thrown away this vast sum in a freak of generosity or folly we might have regretted tho waste of money, but we should not be called to deplore a still more grave calamity. The evil in this case is, that Congress was not deluded it wes corrupted. Where the the money camo from we do not legally know we can only give a Yankee guess but that this money passed this bill mon ey not merely expended on borers and whecdlers, and the usual oyster-cellar ap pliances of lobby legislation but money counted down into the palms of members of Congress themselves this is as clear as tho noon-day sun. Members who but a few months age were breathing out thrcatcnings and slaughter against the Col lins job, havo now spoken, canvassed and voted for the still more extravagant provi sions of tho bill of this session. ... "It gives us no pleasure to speak of these things. We would gladly bury them in oblivion, but for tho certainty that the fearful precedent established in this case will work immeasurable demoralization in the national councils, and woo to the American people. When members of Con gress arc bought and sold like horses at Tatteral's, or second-hand furniture in Chatham-street, the miaria of corruption will soon infect tho wholo atmosphere of tho metropolis; speculators will lay their plans for gettiug millions out of the treasu ry, and will cooly calculate the amount re quisite to buy their bill through tho two Houses. Then any affectation of virtue on tho part of members whoso votes aro to be had, will only nccessiato an addition to the aggregate to bo stolen, and no mom Dor can vote for even a good measure, by which individuals arc to bo benefitted, without subjecting himself to somo taunt of the universal rottenness. Men and brcathren! think of these things !" Who docs not applaud the President for vetoing this corrupt project 1 Our President gets '25,000 a year. The English Queen $2,000,000. The few old revolutionary pensioners yet remaining amongst us, get from eight to thirty dol lars a month, because they fought for and won our liberty and independence, nor Royal Highness, tho Duchess of Kent, gets $150,000 because she is the mother of tho Queen; nud the Duchess of Glou cester S00,000 per year, for being tho Queen's aunt. Prosperity and Adversity. Tho virtue of prosperity is temperanco ; tho virtuo of advertisity is fortitude. . Pros perity is the blessing of the Old Testainont; adversity is tho blessing of tho New, which carrieth tho greater benediction and tho clearer revelation of God's favor.. Yet, even in tho Old Testament if you listen to David's harp, you shall. Lear ;aa many hcarscliko airs as carols; and the pencil of the Holy Ghost Lath labored more in describing tbo afflictions of Job than the felicities of Solomon. Prosperity ; is not without many fears and disasters ; and ad vcrsity is not without comforte's hopes. We seo in needleworks and embroideries it i3 nioro pleasing to have a lively work upon a sad and solemn ground, than to Lave, a dark and melancholy work upon a light somo ground ; judgo thcrcforo of tho pleas ure of tho heart by . thc Tpleasnre of tho cyo. Certainly, virtue in Jiko prcqious odors, most fragrant where they ore incon cd or crushed ; for prosperity, doth Lest discover vice, but adversity doth best uis cover virtue. Lord Bacon.
