ITwas many and many a year ago, In a kingdom by the sea, That a maiden lived, whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee; And this maiden she loved with no othertho1 Than to love, and be loved by me. I was a child and she was a child, In this kingdom by the sea; But we loved with alovethatwasmorelhan lore, I and my Annabel With alove that the winged seraphs of heaven CoveteiV her and roc. And this was the reason that, long ago, In this kingdom by the sea, A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling My beautiful Annabel Lee; So that her high-born kinsman came, And bore her away from me, Tosbutherupin a sepulchre In this kingdom by the sea. The angels, not so happy in heaven, Went envying her and me. Yes! that was the reason (as all men know. In this kingdom by the sea, That the wind camieoutof thedoud by night, Chilling and killlngmy Annabel Lee. But our love it was stronger by far than the love Of those who were older than we, Of many far wiser than we; And neither the angels in heaven above. Nor the demons down under the sea, Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee. For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes Of the beautiful Annabel Lee. And so, all the night-tide I lie down by the side Of my darling, my darling, ray life, and my bride, In her sepulchre there by the sea, In her tomb by the sounding sea. John Ploughman's Talk. ON KEEPING ONE'S EYES OPEN. rough. When you suspect a de- To get through this world a man must look about him, and even sleep with one eve open; for there are many baits for fishes, many nets for birds, and many traps for men. AVliile foxes are so common we must not'be geese. There is a. very great difference in this matter among people of my acquaintance; many see more, with one eye than others with two, and many have fine eyes and cannot see a jot All heads are not sense-boxes. Some are so cun ning that, they suspect everybody, and.so live all their lives in miser- labieiearot tneir neignpors; otuers are so simple that every Knave takes them in, and makes his penny of them, une mantries to see through a brick wall, and hurts his eyes; while another .finds. out a hole in it, and sees' as far as he pleases. Some work at the mouth of a furnace, and are never scorched; and others burn their hands at the fire when they only-mean to :warm them. Now, it is true that no one can give another experience, and we must all pick up wit for ourselves; j'ct I shall ven ture to give some of the homeh cautions which have served my turn, and perhaps they may be of use to others as they have been to me. JNobody is more like an honest man than a thorough rogue. When you see a man with a .great deal of religion displayed in his shop win dow, vou mav depend upon it he keeps a very small stock of it with in. lo not choose vour mend by his looks; handsome shoes often pinch the feet. Don't be fond of compliments; remember, "Thank you, pussy, and thank you, pussy," killed the cat. Don t believe in the catg are very seldom good mousers. By no means put yourself in another person's power; if you put j'our thumb between two grinders, they are very apt to bite. Drink nothing without seeing it; sign nothing without reading it, and make sure that.it means no more than it says. Don't go to law unless you have nothing to lose; lawyers' houses are built on fools' heads. In any busi ness, never wade into water where you cannot sec the bottom. Put on dependence upon the label of a bag; and count money after your own kin. See the sack opened before vou buv what is in it: for he who trades in the dark asks to be cheated. Keep clear of the man who does not value his own character. Beware of every one who swears ; he who would blaspheme his Maker would make no bones of lying or stealing. Be ware of' no man more than of your self; we carry our worst enemies within ns. "When a new opinion or doctrine comes before you, do not bite till you know whether it is that the gingerbread is good because of the gut on it Never shout holloa! till you are quite out of the wood; and don't cry fried fish till they are canght in the net. There's always time enough to boast wait a little longer. Don't throw away dirty water till you have got clean; keep on at scraping the roads till you can get better work; for the poorest pay is better than none, and the humblest office is better than being out of employment. Always give up the road to bulls and madmen; and never fight with a coalheaver or contend with a base character; for they will be sure to blacken you. "Neither trust nor contend, Nor lay wagers, nor lend. And you may depend You'll have peace to your end. I cannot say quite s"o much as that old rhyme does,- for there's more WflprJS ride a broken-kneed horse; the tra der who has once been a fraudulent bankrupt is not the man for you to tieai witn. a rickety cnair is a dangerous seat.

Vet bo not ever more suspicious, for' suspicion is a cowardly virtue at best. Men are not angels, remember that; but they are not devils, and it is too bad to tliink them so. One thing be sure of, never believe in any priest of religion, for before a man could bad enough to pretend to be a priest. he must have hardened his heart and blinded his conscience to the most horrible degree. Our governors im prison gipsies for telling fortunes, and yet they give fat livings to those vagabonds who deceive the pcopl in much weightier things. "Bad company," said the thief, as he went to the gallows between the hangman ana a priest; a very honest speech and a very true word, though spo ken in jest. It is the ignorance of fools which keeps the pot boiling for priests. May God clean this land of the plague or their presence, and make men wise enough to see through their crafty devices. Lastly, my advice to all is remember that good wisdom is that which will turn out to be wise in the end; seek it, friends, and seek it at the hands of all teachers, the Lord Jesus. Who Named the Colleges? The TYife Courant says: Harvard College was named after John Harvard, who in 1638 .left to the college "79 and a library of over 300 books. Williams College was named after Colonel. Ephraim Williams, a soldier of the old b rench war. Dartmouth, who subscribed large amount, and was President of the first Board of Trustees. Brown University received its name from Hon. Nicholas Brown, who was a graduate of the college, went into business, became very wealthy and endowed the college very largely. Columbia College was called King s College till the close of the. war for independence, when it received the name of Columbia. Bowdoiu College was named after Governor Bowdoin, of Maine. lale College was named after Ellhu Yale, who made very liberal donations to the college. Colby University, formerly Water- ville College, was named after Mr. Colby, of Boston, who gave $50,000 to the college in 18b6. Dickinson College received its name from Hon. John Dickinson. He made a very liberal donation to the college, and was President of the Board of Trustees for a number of years. Cornell University was named af ter Ezra Cornell, its founder. Gough's Apostrophe to Water. The following most eloquent "Apostrophe to Water," by Paul Denton", a Methodist preacher, is used by John a. dough, in his tem perance lecture as argument. It is, indeed, a consecutive burst of the beautiful, thrilling and truthful passages, such as can rarely be found in such words: "Look at this, ye sons of earth! Behold it ! It is a beverage that'was brewed by the hands of the Almighly Himself! Not in a simmering still of smokinfr-fire8,-eliokeA with pois- onous gases, and surrounded by the stencil of sickening odors and rank corruption, does our Father in Heaven prepare the precious essence of life, the pure cold water, but in the green glade and grassy dell, where the deer wander and the child loves to play, there God brews it; and down in the valley, where the fountains murmur, and the rills sing, and high upon the mountain tops, where the storm clouds brood, and the thunders crash, and far away on the wide sea, where the hurricane howls music and the big waves roll the chorus sweeping the march of God, there he brews it that beverage of health-giving water. And everywhere it is a thing of beaut; glimmering in the summer rain, shining in the ice germ, till the trees all seem to be turned into liv- g jewels; spreading a living veil over the setting sun, or in white gauze around the midnight moon; sporting in the cataracts, sleeping in the glaciers, dancing in the hail showers; folding its curtain softly around the windy world, and weav ing the many colored iris whose warp is in the rain drops of earth whose wool is in the sunbeams of heaven; all checked over with celes tial flowers by the mystic hand of reflection, still always it is beautiful that blessed life water. No poison bubbles on the brink; its foam brings no sadness or murder. OUR LATTER END. A wise and due consideration of our latter end is neither to render us sad, melancholy, disconsolate, or unfit for the business and offices of life; but to make us watchful, vigi lant, industrious, sober, cheerful, and thankful to that God who hath been pleased thus to make us ser viceable to him, comfortable to our selves, and profitable to others; and after all this, to take away the bit terness and sting of death, through Jesus Christ our Lord. The trial of William Norris at Mansfield, for the murder of his brother John, by striking him with billet of wood on the head during quarrel in August last, has just terminated with a verdict of not guilty. One of the most active pickpockets the State Fair at Springfield, was pretty little dark-eyed English wo man, who tampered with the ancc- tions and pockets of several gentle men, and left before she could be called to account. Gallantry saved a man's life in Bath county, Kentucky, the other day. Having taken refuge under a tree during a showor, he vacated the dry spot for a couple of young ladies, just in time to escape a thunderbolt which killed the one who took his position. Tucson, the capital of Arizona. with a population of 2,500. has neither school, church nor minister. Treves is tho oldest town in Prus sia. It was captured by Julius Cresar before Christ was born, and made the capital of Gaul. It was in French hands in tho last century, but was given back to Prussia in 1815. W. H. Randolph, a descendant of John, who, before tho war, was worth $1,000,000 in Virginia land and negroes, and lost all in his search for "Southern independence," was an npucant lor a mink in a Bridgeport, Conn., police station the other night.

An ejaculation of astonishment burst from her lips as sho unrolled the paper in which it was folded. It contained $500 in bills, and a check for $500 more. With a look of quiet determina tion in her eyes, Mrs. Taggard arose to her feet "The family should now have some. of the comforts to which they were entitled, if thev never did again."
