Y. Atlas. Miss Sedgwick says, there are mile-stones placed aiong the road of life to remind their pa rents fiow near they are to the end of it. And Dickens says, it is pleasant to look upon those beautifuf young beings fresh from the hand of God. We have a fondness for children, it makes our heart grow young to see them in their sports and plays.—Cleaveland Herald. The arrows of misfortune pierce the deep est into gentle hearts. The tears of man are the larger and flow the faster, the less earth is able to give him, and the higher he himself stands above her; even as a cloud rising high er than the rest from the globe, sends forth the largest drops. As the sun breaking forth in winter, so is joy in the season of allli&tion. As a shower in the midst of summer, so are the salutary drops of sorrow mingled in our cup of pleasure. A good one is told by an English paper, of an old lady who had received a letter from tier son, who was a sailor on board a mer chantmen, which ran thus:—‘Have been dri ven by a pampoosa right in our teeth. It biowed great guns and carried away the boltspirit; a heavy sea washed overboard the binnacle and companion; the captain lost his quadrant and could’nt keep an observation for 15 days; at last we arrived all safe at Halifax. The old woman, who could not herself read got a neighbor to repeat i: to her three or four times, until she thought she had got it by heart; she then sallied out to tell her story.— ‘Oh my poor son?” ‘Why what’s the matter, mother—l hope n# mischief?’ ‘Oh, thank God, he’s safe—hut he has been driven into ttie Bay of Firmanent by a bamboozle right in the teeth—it blowed great guns and they car ried a way the pulpit—a heavy sea washed overboard the pinnacle of the tabernacle—the captain lost his conjuration, and could’nt gel any salvation for fifteen days—at last how ever they arrived safe at hallelujah.’ ‘La bless u>! what a wonder they was’nt all heat atomys. Well I would’t be » sailor.* Squeezing.—Why don’t you wear your ring my dear, baid a father in a hail room to his daughter, ‘became papa, it huris me when any one squeezes my baud.’ ‘What business have you to have your hand squeezed ?* 'Certain ly none— hut still you know, papa, one would like to keep it in squeezable order.’’ GARDEN SEEDS.

The proprietor, with a full knowledge of all the different medicines in use for the destruction of Worms, can confidently re commend this Syrup as the most safe and ef fectual vermifuge at present known, being entirely free from that deleterious article, pink root, and other dangerous drugs which are rsometimes used, and which give rise to vert go, dimness of sight, dilated pupils, &c. This iSyrup, besides being a safe and active vermi fuge is agreeable and pleasant to the taste, and no child will refuse to take it; whereas, all the Worm medicines at present in use are so nauseous and disagreeable, that it is diffi cult to persuade children to take them. This medicine is also happily calculated for pre venting and removing many other disorders to which children in thejr early infancy are most liable, such as bowel or summer complaints, diarrhoea or looseness, vomiting and purging. It is invaluable for allaying those excruciating pains which children suffer in cutting their teetfi, and if previously used will render this operation of nature perfectly mild and free from danger.
