TO THE PUBLIC.
Hail I honored ages of grand progression,
White eacli one clings to his profession,
And science moves with onward motion,
To suit each wayward thought and notion,
Bringing to light, some new invention,
More strange than modern wit can mention,
Or genius paint with true endeavor,
Though making graphie strides forever,
While reason urges proud ambition,
To strive for wondrous competition;
Yet in this age of glorious Art,
We can the meed of praise impart,
When meritorious efforts claim
A modest puff to gild the name.
And thus we call with honest pride,
Attention to the Painters Side,
Two men who bravely know their calling,
Whose works are worthy of extolling,
Two model artists of the day,
And most obliging in their way,
Moreland & Jakeman—mark the name,
In Roanoke street you’ll find the same,
Call at their shop number one,
You’ll get the best of Painting done,
And whether Foe, Friend, or neighbor,
They’ll charge but moderate for their labor,
So now I invite each one and all,
So walk around, and give them a call,

HORRORS OF SLANDER.
Oh, who, that has felt the slanderer's sting,
And borne all the woes that its venom can
fling,
That would not exclaim, Oh, calumny when
Will you cease to harrass and defame honest
men?
If there is one crime more vile than the rest,
It surely abides in the slanderer's breast;
And will blast, if it can, its neighbor’s good
name,
And |he innocent character crush and de
One had better, by far, by a reptile be stung,
Than over encounter a slanderer’s tongue :
For the sting of the viper is often relieved,
But character blasted is never retrieved.
Have you ever felt the slanderer's breath ?
1 think it by far more painful than death ;
For death to the Christian will glory unfold.
But slander brings misery that ne'er can be
told.
By far I'd rather be an humble mute.
And never, never breath nor lisp a name.
Than wield atougue that would polute
M v neighbor’s character or frame.
A N X I K.
My Cruelty to my Relatives.
I. had au aunt coming to visit me. for
the first time since my marriage, anil
don’t know what evil genius prompted
the wickedness (T acknowledge, with
tears in my eyes, that it was such.) which
I perpetrated towards my wife and my
ancient relative.
“My dear,” said I to my wife, on t lu
day before my aunt’s arrival, “you know
Aunt Mary is coming to-morrow; well, i
forgot to mention a rather annoying cir
cumstance with regard to her. She's
very deaf; and although she can hear my
voice, to which she is accustomed, in its
ordinary tones, yet you will be obliged to
speak extremely loud in order to be heard.
It will be rather inconvenient,but 1 know
you will do everything in your power to
make her stay agrceble.”
Mrs. S. announced her determination
to make herself heard, if possible.
I then went to John Thomas, who
loves a joke as well as any- person I know
of, told him to be at my hsuse,at 0 p. m.,
on the following evening, and felt compa
ratively happy.
I went to the rajjroail station with a
carriage the next evening, and when 1
was on my way home with my aunt, 1
said:
“My dear aunt, there is one rather an
noying infirmity that Amelia has, which
I forgot to mention before. She's very
deaf; and although she can hear my
voice, to which she is accustomed, in its
ordinary tones, yet you will be obliged to
speak extremely loud in order to be heard.
I’m sorry for it.”
Aunt Mary, in the goodness of her
heart, protested that she rather liked
speaking loud, and to do so would give
her great pleasure.
The carriage drove up—on the steps
was my wife—at the window was John
Thomas, with a face as utterly solemn as
if he had buried all his relatives that af
ternoon.
I handed out my aunt—she ascended
the steps.
“ I am delighted to see you,” shrieked
my wife; and the policeman on the other
side of the street started,and my aunt fell
nearly down the steps.
“ Kiss me, my dear,” howled my aunt;
and the hall lamp clattered, and the win
dow shook as with the fever and ague.
1 looked at the window—John had dis
appeared. Human nature could stand
it no longer. I poked my head into the
carriage, and went into strong convul
sions.
When I entered the parlor, my wile
was helping Aunt Mary to take off her
bonnet and cape, and there sat John with
his face of woe.
Suddenly; “ Did you have a pleasan t
journey?” went off my wife, like a pistol,
and John Thomas jumped to his feet.
“ Rather dusty,” was the response, iu
a warwhoop; and so the conversation con
tinued.
The neighbors for streets around must
have hoard it; when I was iu the third
story of the building I heard every word
plainly.
In the course of the evening my aunt
took occasion to say to me, “ blow loud
your wife speaks ? Don’t it hurt her ?”
I told her all deaf persons talked loud
ly ; and that my wife, being used to it,
was not affected by the exertion, and
that Aunt Mary was getting along very
nicely with her.
Presently my wife said, softly, “Alf,
how very loudly your aunt talks!”
“Yes,” said I, “ all deaf person do.
You are getting along Jwith her finely;
she hears every word you say.” And I
rather think she did.
Elated by their success at being under
stood, they went at it hammer and tongs,
till everything on the mantle-piece clat
tered again, and 1 was seriously afraid ot
a crowd collecting in front of the house.
But the end was near. My aunt, be
ing of an investigating turn of mind, was
desirous of finding out whether the ex
ertion of talking so loud was not injurious
to my wife. So, said she, in an unearth
ly hoot, for her voice was not as musical
as it was when she was young, “Doesn’t
talking so loud strain your lungs ?”
‘“It is an exertion;” shrieked my wife.
“Then why do you do it ?” was the an
swering scream.
"Because—because—you can't bear if
I don’t,” squealed my wife.
“What 1” said my aunt, fairly rivaling
a railroad this time.
I bogan to think it time to evacuate
the premises; and looked round and see
ing John gone I stepped into the back
parlor, and there he lay flat on the back,
with his feet at a right-angle to his body,
rolling from side to side, with his fist pok
ed into his ribs, and a most agonizing ex
pression of countenance, but I did not
utter a sound. 1 immediately and vol
untarily assumed a similar attitude, and 1
think that, from the relative position of
our boots and heads, and our attempts to
restrain our laughter, apoplexy must have
ensued, if a horrible groan which John
gave vent to in his endeavor to repress
his risibility had not betrayed our hiding
place,
lu rushed my wife and my aunt, who
1 >v this time comprehended the joke;
aiid such a scolding as I then got I ne
ver got la-fore, and I hope never to get
again.
1 know not what the end would have
been if .John, in his endeavors to appear
respectful and sympathetic, had not giv
en vent to such a diabolical noise, some
thing between a groan and a horse-laugh,
that all gravity was upset, and we
screamed in concert.
Shinw.inu a I'loUSK.—James II——
wan a young man who commenced life
with every flattering prospect, and a
wife and lovely children soon blessed
him. Unhappily by slow degrees he be
came attached to strong drink, and be
came—to make a long matter short—a
drunkard.
One evening, he left his wife in tears,
as was too common, repaired to the house
of a man who sold the deadly poison, and
drank so much that he sank down in a
kind of stupefaction easily mistaken for
sleep. All his companions had deser
ted him. Near midnight the landlord's
wife came into the bar-room and told
him:
“I wish that man would go home, if
he’s got one to goto.”
“Hush ! hush*!” said the landlord,
“he will call for something else directly.”
“ 1 wish he would make haste about it,
then, for it is time every honest person
was in bed,” said his wife.
“lie’s taking the shingles off his house
and putting them on ours,” said the land
lord.
At this time James began to come to
his senses, and commenced rubbing
his eyes, and strotching himself, as if
he had just awoke, saying, “I believe I’ll
go.”
“Don’t be in a hurry, James,” said the
landlord.
yes, I must go,” said James, “so
good night 1” and off he started.
After an absence of some time, the
landlord one day met him, and accosted
him.
“Hallo, James, why haven’t you been
to see us ?”
“Why,” said James, “I had taken shin
gles enough off my house, and it began to
leak, so I thought it was time to stop the
leak, and 1 have done it 1”
The tavern-keeper was astonished,
went home to toll his wife about it, and
James ever since has let rum alone,
and attended to his business. He is
now with his wife and children happier
than ever.
Never stop to Argue with a Law
yer.—The Marshall (Texas) Republican
lays down this maxim, adding, “if you
do you’re lost;” and “illustrating" as fol
lows :
Wo have m Marahall, as m most
towns in Texas, an ordinance forbidding
persons from hitching a horse to a shade
within the corporate limits, and affixing
as penalty for its infringement a tine of
one dollar. Our constable, who is a very
dilligent and persevering man in the dis
charge of his official duties, has enforced
this ordinance in a manner that has ren
der him a terror to offenders. Recently,
a lawyer, whose office is on or near the
square, and who has a beautiful shade
tree before his door, lode up hastily and
hitched his horse to it. The constable,
happened to be passing by, shortly after
wards, and proceeded to unhitch him and
take him off'. The owner, witnessing
the act, and perhaps having an idea ot
what it meant,came out and said:
“Hole,Mr. B., what are you after?—
What are you going to do with my
horse?”
“Why,” said the constable, “you have
violated the city ordinance, and must pay
a fine of one dollar.”
“Bless my soul,” said the lawyer, with
great emphasis, “that’s my tree; 1 plant
ed it myself.”
“Can't help that,” said B., “the law
makes no distinctions, and says nothing
about ownership. It embraces all shade
trees in the town.”
“’Pon my word. Pshaw! 1 planted
that tree, as I told you, myself, and for
the express purpose of having a place to
hitch my horse. Haven’t I a right to
plant a post before my door? ’
‘Of course you have,” said the consta
ble.
“Well, then, sir," said the lawyer,
“just call it a post, as I planted it for one,
and if the shade is any objection, i am
j willing to saw the toy of it off,"
