The supposed thief I never saw, but understand he is of small sta ture and between 40 and 50 years old, nor am 1 authorized to offer a reward for him as a runa wav, but the law makes ample allowance for taking up such, and the state gives a premium for the apprehension and conviction of horse thieves. p.

The superiority of this over the old plan is very evident from the general adoption of de tonating guns by the sportsmen in all the northern cities, where they are greatly pre ferred to the use of flint and steel. A much less quantity of powder is requisite in loading, the fire is certain and much quicker, are completely water proof; and loaded in much less time, more secured against accidents than common guns; and what would render them particularly desirable, no flash can be seen mom the lock in firing. ■ ...

ON THE DEATH OF A YOUNG GIRL. Beauty and Virtue crown’d thee ! Death in thy youth hath found thee Thou*rt gone to the grave By the soft willow wave, And flowrets are weaping around thee! The sun salute* thee early, The stars begem thee rarely, Then why should we weep When we see the asleep ’Mid a world that loves thee so dearly f A SCOLDING WIFE. Let lightning flash—let thunders roll along, Let hideous night-fiends join in awful song, Let earthquakes shake the earth from pole to pole, And hell stand gaping for my sinning soul; Let elements contend in endless strife, ALL are not equal to a Scolding Wife. B. THE SEASONS. Wheeling at their icy goal, the Sea sons renew their rapid rounds in unin terrupted order, and silent harmony. Winter, drcst in garments of snow, like the vestal who keep the “ whiteness” of her soul. Spring, that throws upon both of these the genial warmth and light of heaven, and fills them alike with cheerfulness and hope. Summer, that brings the sun to mature the har vest, and replenish the granaries of earth. Autumn,that brings the shade in which the labourer may repose after his toil, and tells the trees to drop their fo liage, and heaven will renew it for them —speaking thus in parables to good men, that they must be content to die, seeing that the Supreme Being, in his mercy, has promised to renew their life forever—and that Autumn is only a pledg that Winter will be overcome, and that Spring will re-appear. These, and each of these, seasons of the year, what are they “ but the varied God ?” for ever watching over the destinies of his creatures, and wisely providing for their necessity and wants. HINTS TO THE LADIES. Words are the body and dress of thought: and the woman that simpers and smiles when she should resent the culpable freedom of speech in a bold man, renders questionable the purity of her heart. The woman that depre cates her husband, still more depre cates herself: for if a woman would have the world respect her husband, she ought to set the example. A good woman’s prospects of happiness with a good man reaches into eternity. ANECDOTE. A general whom Talleyrand had one day invited to dine, having kept him a long time waiting, he had dinner served. The officer arrived in the middle of the first course, and excused himself for being so late, on the pica that he had been detained more than” an houj* by a Pekin. What is a />fth'n..«9”asked M. de Talleyrand. “ What sir,” replied the general, “do you not know that we military men are accustomed to call Pekin, every one who is not military?” Aye, aye!” cried Talleyrand, “ tis just like us, who are accustomed tocall ev ery one military who is not civil.' THE FIRE SIDE. Home must if possible be rendered pleasant to its master, and a wife should ever strive to appear amiable in the eyes of her husband. A man should come to his own fire side as a weary bird to its nest, not as a captive to his prison RANK. Would a man of rank estimate his real dignity, let him conceive himself in a state in wich all rank is abolished awful death. «We must all appear before the judg ment seat of Christ” was recently given as a text by the Rev.
