It left the road by school and church, A penciled shadow, nothing more, That parted from the silver birch. And ended at the (arm house door. No line or compos* traced its phut With frequent bends to left or right,J In aimless, wayward curves it ran, But always kept the door in sight. The gab'ed porch, with woodbine green.— The broken mill stone at the sill— Tho' manj a rood might stretch between, The truant child could see them still. No rocks across the pathway lie No fallen trunk is o'er it thrown— And yet it winds, we know not why. And turns, as if for tree or stone. Perhsps some lover trod the way. With skakmg knees and leaping heart, And so it often runs a-tray With sinsous sweep or sudden start, Or one, perchance, with clouded brain, From some unholy banquet reeled— And since, our devious steps maintain His track across the trodden field. Nay, deem not thus—no earth-born will Could ever trace a faultless line Our truant steps are human still— To walk unswerving were divine! Truants from love, we dream of wrath. Oh, rather let us trust the more! Through all the wanderings of the path, We still can see our Father's door. E PROGRESS O E AGE LIFB IN 1776.

[COMMUHICATSO.] CI1APTEKSON E E A N E BBMBBB OUB. The present sge is marked with strong, and auspicious peculiarities. One of them is, increasing numbers of people are disposed to inquire, with regard to every moral principle and practice "is it right It is less sat isfactory now than in former times, that a thing is pleasant, merely that it is popular, has been practiced along time, by respectable men, or even by good men the question is and with numbers increasing continually, "Is it right?" asand Another auspicious indication of the present time, is the standard of right and wrong with increasing numbers is the bible. This has, by good men, long been acknowledged, in theory, as the only perfect moral standard. But they are now, more than ever before, applying it to practice. Not only areapplied they laboring with more vigor to send it to all nations and convey a know ledge of its contents to all hearts but they are appealing to it, as the cri terion of thought aud action and arebe, endeavoring with new diligence to bring every soul under its controling power. It is not decisive as it once was, that a thing is legal, according to the human statute or honorable in human society but the question is, does it accord with the word of God, as revealed in the bible? To the lawhis and the testimony if they speak not according to this word, increasing numbers conclude there is no truth in them. Auother momentous indication the present time, aud one which takes hold, with a mighty grasp on the des tinies of man, is, the number is increas ing who feel conscience bound, daily to listen to the bible, as the voice of God speaking to them and with fer vent supplication for the teachings of his spirit, that they may understand his will, and who when they dp under stand it, are not ashamed to, do it. The number is rapidly increasing, who, when they learn, that the bible condemns a practice will renounce it, and who when they learn that it re quires an action, will attempt with the spirit which the bible inculcates, to perform it, whether other men do this or not and who will leave the consequences to the divine disposal, Man has a deeper and more pervad ing conviction than ever before of per sonal responsibility, in all situations, tor the character and tendency of his actions to the retributions of eternity, The consequence is, it is becoming more and more common, if a man wish es to have good done, to do it himself if a man wishes to have a little good done, to do that, and if he wishes to have a great good done, to do that, and to do it novo. There is less disposition than formerly, to depend on other peo ple, nnd to nut off present dnty to fu-oue ture time. Men are not so much afraid as they once were or ashamed, if need ful, to go in the path of duty alone, and whether others do it or not, athand tempt to do good, as they have oppor tunity, to all men. The feeblest and most obscure do not despair of exert ing influence that shall be felt by all people, to all ages. A striking devel opment of these principles has been made in the Temperance Reformation. A vicious practice had long received the sanction of legislation, and theform support of the example of nearly the whole Christian world. But it was followed, as its natural and necessary results, by loss of property, character, life, aud soul to an extent which must fill every person, who comprehends it, with amazement. And the question was started, no doubt, by the Spirit of God, "Is it right" to continue a prac tice which produces such results and which, if continued, will perpetuate and increase them to all future ages? & The bible was examined, and provi dences observed Divine teaching was and the conviction was fasten on the mind, that the practice was not right, and that to prevent the evils which it produced, men must cease to perpetuate the cause. And for the of making knowu to our coun trymen especially, the reasons why they should do this, Temperance So cieties have been formed, whose ob ject is, by diffusion of information and the exertion of kind moral influence, to attempt with, the divine blearing, to procure suoh a change of sentiment practice with regard to intoxicat ing drinks, that intemperance shall cease, and temperance with all its at tendant benefits to the body and the soul shall universally prevail. Temperance, in view of thoee who have formed these eocietie* i$ the mod' eraie and proper uee of thing* bene ficial, and ahetirtence from thing* hurtfuL Ardent spirits, being in its nature, as manifested by Ha effects, a poison, and one of the things hurtful, and in this country the grand means of in* toxicatton, their object required them to abstain from the drinking and from the furnishing of H, and. to endeavor by all Mutable means, to induce tho whole community tb do tho 4 c-' ff lU SSSSSM atMS" This object they have steadily pur sued. And to give to moral influence the highest and best effect, they have attempted to embody, in voluntary as sociations, all, who practice on theto principle and are willing to unite with them. The plan has received the smile of Heaven. It has been viewed with fa vor by the good, and has accomplish ed great results. More than 4,000 had ceased to make ardent spirits, and more than 10,000 had ceased to sell it They believed that the business was wicked, and they their belief to their practice, more than 50,000 men, who once were drunkards, had within five years ceas ed to use intoxicating drinks, and were as all men who pursue this course will sober men. W. A I W I A S A About the latter end of Queen Anne's wars,. Captain John Beams, commander of the York Merchant, ar rived at Barbadoes from England having disembarked the last part of loading, which was coals, the sailors who had been employed in that dirty work ventured into the sea to wash themselves there they had not been long before a person on °f board (spied a large shark making towards them, and gave them notice of their danger, upon which they swam back, and reached the boat, all butlength one him the monster overtook almost within reach of the oars, and griping him by the small of the back, his de-member vouring jaws soon cut asunder, and asa soon swallowed the lower part of bis body the remaining part was taken up and carried on board, where'his comrade was, his friendship with the deceased had long been distinguished by a reciprocal discharge of such en dearing offices, as an union and sym pathy of souls implied. When he saw the severed trunk of his friend, it wasfects with an horror and emotion top great for words to paint. During this affect ing scene, the insatiable shark was traversing the bloody surface in search after the remainder of his prey the rest of the crew thought themselves happy in being on board, he alone un* in the most gracious manner. The rounds of the battle were detailed to us, with great minuteness, and the only thing my Portuguese friends seemed regret was that they were not spec tators of so exciting a scene." Twen ty years pass, and Mr. Buckingham is at Earl Fitzwilliam's house, on the coming of age of Lord Milton—"There were, already about 2,000 persons as sembled in their gayest apparel with a blaze of diamonds and jewelry, es pecially on some of the elderly ladies, whose natural beauty having departed was sought to be replaced by artificial attractions, in which rouge, false hair, and other auxiliaries were used, to At the last annual meeting, of one of those societies, there had been formed in the United States, thirty-one State Temperance Societies and in the United States there had been formed over 1,000 of one particular order, embracing a membership of harmonize with an openness of neck over 100,000,' and of other societies a sufficient membership, to make 1,000. 000, and all connected with this great reform. h.ppy that he was not within reach of degeneration and decay in the system. the destroyer. Fired at the sight, and vowiug that he wouid make the de-eric vourer disgorge, or be swallowed him self, into the same grave—he plunges into the deep, armed with a large, sharp pointed knife. The shark no sooner saw but he made furiously to wards him—both equally eager, the for his prey, the other for revenge. The moment the shark.opened his ca-laborer! pacious jaws, his adversary dexterous ly diving,and grasping him with his left somewhat below the upner fins, successfully employs his knife in hie right hand, giving him repeated stabs in the belly the enraged shark after many unavailing efforts finding him self overmatched in his own element, endeavors to disengage himself, some times plunging to the bottom, then mad with pain, rearing his uncouth how stained with his own waves.^Xwd The crews of the surround ing vessels saw the unequal..._. combat, uncertain from which ot the combat ants the stream of blood issued till at length the shark, weakened by loss of blood made towards the shore, and with him his conqueror who flushed with an assurance of victory, pushes his foe with redoubled ardor, and bynot the help of an ebbing tide, dragging him on shore, rips up his bowels, aud unites and buries the severed carcase of his friend in one hospitable grave.— Fraxer'e Magazine. }!l?^ )l-} M7f^J^yF\^m W O I S E I E O A FICI1TER. Mr. Buckingham, in his amusing gossipping Life, writes:—"A few days after this, an oppoturnity presented it self of our seeing the moat popular prize fighter of the day—young Gully, who had just beaten the champion of England, Gregson, in a terribly bloody encounter, and was to show himself at his own house to his admirers, as soon as the cuts and bruises he had receiv ed in the contest were sufficiently heal ed. At that period Gully kept a small public house, under the sign of theof Plough, in Carey street, LinoolnVinn fields, and thither we repaired on thetruth ..V WHOLE NUMBEB 144. and bosom that was anything but ap propriate. Among the groups, how ever, that passed from room, to room in the general promenade, there was one that attracted universal attention. It was formed of three persons—the central one, a fine, manly, athletic, yet well formed aud graceful figure, and resting on either arm, two of thewine loveliest women of all the assembled multitude, about eighteen and twenty years of age, dressed in plain, green velvet, without a single ornament or jewel of any kind, but such exquisite figures, beautiful features, blooming complexions, bright eyes, and rich and abundant hair, as might make either of them a worthy representative of the Venus of Cnidns,of Medici? or Cano va. They were so little known that the question was perpetually be being whispered around, 'But who are they?—who can they be?' They re received much attention from Earl Fitzwilliam, and many of the distin guished guests, and this only height ened the curiosity to know from whence they came, as they were evidently, un known to the country gentry.'* At it was discovered that they were Mr. Gully, the ci-devant prize fighter, and his two daughters! He was then for Pontefract, had acquired large fortune, and most honorably it was believed, on the turf, being an an excellent judge of horses—had pur chased a large estate, and was living in a style of great elegance, at Hare park, near Pontefract, respected by all his neighbors." MENTAL LABOR.—The injurious ef of mental labor are in a great measure owing to the extensive forcing in early youth to sudden or misdirected study to the co-operation of depressing emotions or passions to the neglect of the ordinary rules of hygiene to the neglect of the hints of the body or to ^.the presence of the seeds of disease, The man of healthy phlegmatic or ehol temperment is less likely to be in-and joured by application than one of san guine or melancholic type yet these latter, with allowance for the original constitution may be capable of vast ef forts. The extended and deep culture of the mind exerts a directly conserva tive influence upon (tie body. Fellow one word to you.

NAVAX RKSOCBCKS OF ENGLAND.— The Paris I?Elate has the following remarks upen the debate in the English House of Commons on the navy esti mates: first day of his exhibition. In him we saw a tall, handsome young man, of he laughs at the public when he pre ahout twenty one yean, of age, his head fearfully battered, many cuts in his face, andboth eyes recovering from an intense blackness, but full of gaiety and spirit* at his late triumph he wore a little white apron before him after the manner of landlords, and served his visitors with whatever drink they required while his young wife, an 4. The great fact to be remarked is the immensity of means commanded by the English navy. To add in a single year 26 large vessels, of which 15 are line of battle ships, is an extraordinary ex-]of ertion, Which England is alone capable of making, and which could not be ex ecuted by the dock yards of all the other powers ofthe old and new world, were they eventocombine their efforts. The French steam fleet comprises splendid vessels, that can bear advan tageously any comparison with those England, and the First Lord of the admirality spoke perhaps with greater than he suspected when he ad-in mitted that fact in full Parliament but tends that the number of these vessels causes him any alarm. He istoowell aware thatin this respect Eugland still possesses no rival."

FUNERAL OF AN INDIAN CBTEF.^- On Sunday the remains of Pa-ser-ich kwa, one of the braves of the Winne bago delegation from Minnesota, who have just concluded a treaty with the United States, were borne to the Con gressional cemetery, and committed to the earth with a simple ceremonial. Among those present at the ceremo nial were Senator Rice, Commissioner Mix of the Indian Bureau, nearly all the clerks employed in that bureau, the superintendent, agents, and inter preters now in this city, and a number of distinguished gentlemen connected with the general Government Pa-ser ich-kwa was probably about 55 years of age, and was a brave and active warrior. He was with the war party of Winnebagoes who, under Wa-con de-co-rah, took part with the whites in the Black Hawk war, and took that chief prisoner. His title of Prophet" was given him by the whites. He died at the Juniata House,on Saturday, of pneumonia.—[Wash.
