ADDRESS TO GRAY HAIR.
From Harper's Monthly Magazine. Thou silvery braid, now banded o'er my brow, Before thy monitory voice I bow: Obedient to thy mandate, youth forget, And strive thy word to hear without regret Why should regret attend that onward change, "Which tells that time is coming to its range Its border line, which God approves and seals, As crown of glory to the man who feels Content in ways of righteousness to dwell 1 To such gray hair does not of weakness tell ; But rays of glory light its silvery tint, And change its summons to a gentle hint That time from all is fading fast away, But that to some its end is lasting day ; And that the angels view its pure white band, As seal of glory.frora their master's hand, And closer draw, the near ripe fruit to shield, Until to Heaven its produce they can yield. EARLY RISING. BY IIEBRICK. Did you but know, when bathed in dew How sweet the little violet grew, Amidst the thorny brake ; How fragrant blew the ambient air. O'er beds of primroses so fair, Your pillow you'd forsake. Paler than the autumnal leaf, Or the wan hue of pining grief, The cheek of 6loth shall grow; Nor cosmetic, wash, or ball, Nature's own favorite tints recall, If once you let them go. AN AGREEABLE SURPRISE. The ties of relationship are held most sacred in the imperial family of Austria Maria Lou isa has been taught to reverence them from her infancy. She was tenderly attached to every member of her family, and when the prelimina ries of her marriage with Napoleon were arrang ed, and she knew that she was about to leave all who were so dear to her, and with whom she had passed many days, her heart sank within her, her tears flowed incessantly. The day came: she was to leave forever the home of her childhood. She took a most aftecting leave of all her family and then shut herself up in her own apartment, where according to ettiquette, she was to re main till the French embassador who was to conduct her to Paris went to hand her to the carriage. When Berthier, Prince Do Neufcha tel, went into her cabinet for this purpose, he found her weeping bitterly. For some time she was unable to speak; at length words of pass ionate grief found thier way. " I cannot help crvinc " she said: "everv thing I look at, and that I am going to leave, is so dear to nie : there arc rav sister's drawings, my mother herself worked this tapestry, these pictures were painted by my uncle Charles." Thus sho went on apostrophizing every article the room contained, even the very carpets, and all of her pets of whom she was so fond, so cherished, and caressed ; her singing birds, that hho loved to sit and listen to these were all to bo left behind and the parrot that she herself had taught to speak ; but, above all, the little faithful dog, the favorite companion, even he was not to accompany her for it had been said that the emperor did not like pet dogs. As she caressed the little creaturo her tears fell faster. Berthier was sensibly touched 'by the marks of affection bestowed by the young princess on all the objects associated with lionie. Ho told her that all would not be in readiness for their departure for a couple of hours. So the poor princess was allowed the indulgence of her grief for a little while longer. But the moment c;imc,and she hud to tear her self away from the scenes and the friends that occupied all her aflection. An enthusiastic greet ing awaited her from the crowds assembled to welcome her. Splendor surrounded her on ev ery side ; but home and the dear friends were far away. As Napoleon led her from the balco ny of the Tuileries, where she had been gazed at and hailed with acclamations of joy by the populace, he said " Come, Louisa, I ought to give you some lit tle reward for the happiness which you have con ferred on me the great happiness which I have just enjoyed. Nay, nay, don't be afraid to fol low me" continued he as he led her along one of the narrow corridors of the palace, lit by a bingle lamp ; M nay, nay, don't be afraid to fol low me." Suddenly they stopped at the door of a room wherein a dog was nuking efforts to get out. The emperor opened the door the favorite dog was there. . He testified his joy at again seeing hi mistress by a thousand wild pranks ; bound ing and jumping about her. The profusion of lamps by which the room was lit up, discov ered to Maria Louisa that it was furnished with the very chairs and the carpets of her apart ment at Vienna. There were her sister's draw ings, and the tapestry wrought by her mother's hands ; there were the pictures painted by her uncle Charles; there was her parrot, and there her singing birds ; and, above all, the pet dog. Louisa was greatly effected and delighted by finding herself surrounded by these dear, famil iar objects. So well had Berthier planned and executed this agreeable surprise for the discon isolate princess, whom he had-found weeping over all that had been endeared to her by the fondest associations, that she never suspected his design in delaying their departure from Vi enna. " Come in, Berthier," said the emperor, open ing a 6ide door, " and let the empress thank you. There, Louisa, thank him embrace him who planned this pleasure for you." How frequently genius effects great ends by the simplest means! It is most interesting to see the greatest difficulties give way before its magic influence. ' Silence. What a strange power there is in silence! How many resolutions are formed how many sublimo conquests effected during that pause, when the lips are closed, and the soul secretly feels the eye of her maker upon her! When some of those cutting, sharp, blighting words have been spoken which send the hot indignant blood to the face and head, if those to whom they are addressed keep si lence, look on with awe, for a mighty work is going on within them, and the spirit of evil, or their guardian angel, is very near to them, in that hour. During that pause they have made a step toward heaven or hell, and an item has been scored in the book which the day of judg ment shall see opened. They are strong ones of earth, the mighty food for good or evil, those who know how to keep silence when it is a pain and a grief to them ; those who give time to their own souls, to wax strong against tempta tion ; or to the powers of wrath; to itamp up on them their withering passage. . J3T" We publish below, Governor Hancock's Message to the Legislature of Massachusetts in the year 1792. It U taken from the Provi dence Gazette and Country Journal, published by Joihi Cahter, at Providence, It. I., and is now the property of our worthy citizen, Harry Eaton. Its dress is that of the old seventy-six stamp. It will be seen that the establishment of a system of free schools is therein recom mendedby which, says "the bold Hancock," "The children of the poorer will have equal ad. vantages with those of the richer part of the community." Gentlemen of the Senate, and of the House of Representatives. The candour which my fellow-citizens have shown towards me, by repeatedly giving me their suffrages for Governor of the Common wealth, and my duty resulting from thatoflice, induce me to request your ottendance in this place, that I may pay to you the respect which is due to the- assemblied Representatives of a great and free people. In times of public danger, and of common calamity, men in otfice have an opportunity to make a display of ability, firmness and patriot ism; but we, Gentlemen, in the present state of our country, have little more to do, than to improve and enjoy that general tranquility, and those scenes of public prosperity, which scl kom fall to the lot of a nation. From the char acters which compose the legislature, our fellow-citizens must possess the highest assurance, that all the measures of the present year will be calculated to preserve to the people of Uni ted America in general, and to those of this Commonwealth in particular, thoso invaluable blessings. That a free government, founded in the nat ural equal rights of all the people, is within the reach of human ability, and to bo prized as a principal support of national happiness, is an idea which has been long established in the minds of the greatest and wisest men in the world : The manner in which this State was originally settled by our ancestors, has given us an opportunity to carry this principle into prac tice: And our great and unexampled success has given us cause of gratitude to Him who prescribed the bounds of different nations, and has fully compensated us for all our toil, ex- pence and trouble. That government may be considered as truly free, where all the people are, by the constitu tion and laws, upon the same rank of privilege, ond have an equal security for their lives, liber ties, and property ; where the laws do not ere ate, but ore calculated to prevent all exclusive rights to fame or wealth, and leave each citizen upon his own merit for the honours of Ins coun try, and upon his own honest exertions for the acnuirement of nrouertv. That such a situa tion as I have hinted at. may be in the possess ion of everv nation on the earth, it is the de vout wish of everv crood man : And in this idea, our prayers cannot cease for a people, with whom wo are nearly allied, and whose generous assistance did much towards promoting the ob ji'ct of our wishes in the tirao of our distress. The means most likely to continue our pub lic felicity, are the establishing and executing such laws, as will tend to support the habits of truth, integrity", and every moral virtue; and by certain and adequate punishments, to prohibit all frauds, and everv immorality and vice : The providing for a regular support of teachers of piety, religion and morality; and the mainten ance of free public schools in the towns of the State, by which the children of the poorer will have equal advantages with those of the richer part of the community. I am exceedingly grat ified in being assured that these important in stitutions are so generally attended to by the people of this State: And as I consider our University at Cambridge as being the principal source of the learning and intelligence possess ed by this community, I cannot but earnestly solicit you to give it your encouragement and support. Bv these, and other measures, which your wisdom and prudence will dictate, under the smiles of that Divine Being who has hither to afforded us his support, we may hope for a continuance of our prosperity, and lor pcrma ncnt public happiness. We live in a country that naturally excites the mind to enterprise, giving encouragement to industry, and to that spirit of commerce I 1 A A . J i ' .11.. ' wnicn lenas to commcna a inenaiy intercourse amongst all the nations of the earth, to improve in the arts, and to render more valuable and im portant the vast variety of blessings which we possess. I have directed the Secretary to lay before you such acts arid proceedings of the Congress of the United States, as have been torwarded to. me. Among them, is an act for regulating thb militia of the State. That act appears to me to be quite consonant to the constitution of the General Government, and I shall, as Com mandcr in Chief of the militia of this. State, take every measure in my power to render the militia respectable under it. There is also another act providing for the proportion of Representatives to be sent from the states to Congress. Your attentron wil b immediately called to forming districts, from whence they are to be elected in this state. You will in this business be pleased to consid er, that having the districts so formed as to give a centre of communication to the inhabitants of each, will have a tendency to promote harmony and unanimity in their proceedings. In the last session of the late General Court I was obliged, by the sense of duty, to object to a rosolve passed by the two branches, for a particular divorce. I am led to believe that a majority of the Senate and House were of opin ion, that the provisions made by the standing laws of the state are inadequate to subjects of this nature. If I had been clearly of opinion that the Legislature had a right to dissolve the bands of matrimony by special act, I should have objected to a resolve for that purpose, as not being of proper solemnity in the transaction. I wish you, Gentlemen, to revise the laws now existing on this subject, and if the causes as recognized by law do not comprehend all those for which a divorce ought to be allowed, you will make such provision, as may tend to give relief where it ought to bo had. I am obliged however to observe, that this is a subject which ought to bo treated with great caution ; because indulgences of this kind, when established by law, are very liable to bo abused, to the great injury of society. Whether the people have the advantage of a ready and cheap administration of justice, you wno come irom me various pans oi me com monwealth can determine better than I can. If they have not this benefit, you will pay a prop er attention to a subject 60 very important and interesting in its nature, Whether a new ar- rangement of the counties will conduce to the saving of expence to to the people, may be worthy your consideration: An increase of their number, may render the government very unwieldy, and may have a tendency finally to injure the Commonwealth. There is yet a debt due from this Common- wealth. It has not been assumed by the Con gress, nor provided for by us. Our demand against the United States has not yetbeen liqui dated or allowed by that government. Justice demands a perseverance in measures that may extinguish the debt, and satisfy the just claims of our creditors. By the standing laws of the Commonwealth, Justices of the Peace are empowered to appoint appraisers of the estates of deceased persons, and such appraisement is frequently the foun dation of an inventory of the personal estate, which is to be accounted for by executors and administrators. The executors and administra tors have their election to apply to such justice as they please, for such appointment; and lam very apprehensive that widows, orphans and creditors, may be injured by this method of pro cedtire, while the expence saved by not applying to the Judge of Probate for such appointment is very trifling. . Gentlemen: I shall not detain you further on particular parts of our business, but shall make such communication to you, by special messpge as I shall conceive to be necessary; and while 1 hope that such public business as shall employ your attention, will have an early day in the session, and be laid before me so timely that J shall not be obliged to delay an ad journment after it shall be requested, I shall do every thing in my power to give dispatch to the public business, and to render the session agree able to you. JOHN HANCOCK. Council-Lhamber, June G, 1792. . A Mothers first Duty-. I would wish ev- cry mother to pay attention to the difference between a course of action, adopted in compli ance with the authority, and between a conduct pursued for the sake of another. lhe first proceeds from reasoning; the sec ond flows from affection. The first may be abandoned, when the immediate cause may have ceased to exist; the latter will bo permanent, as it did not depend upon circumstances, or ac cidental considerations, but is founded in amor al and coustant principle. In the case now before us, if the infant does not disappoint the hope of the mother, it will bo a proof, first of aflection, secondly, of con fidence. Of affection for the earliest, and the most innocent wish to please, is that of the infant to please the mother. If it be questioned, wheth er that wish can at all exist in one so little ad vanced in development, I would again, as I do upon almost all occasions, appeal to the experi ence of mothers. It is a proof, also, of confidence. Whenever an infant has been neglected ; when the neces sary attention has not been paid to its wants; and when, instead of the smile of kindness, it has been treated with the frown of seventy; it will be difficult to restore it to that quiet and amiable disposition, in which it will wait for the gratification of its desires without impatience, and enjoy it without greediness. If aflection and confidence have once gained ground in the heart, it will be the first duty of the mother to do every thing in her power to encourage, to strengthen, and to elevate this principle. Pestalozzi. Be Gentle. A man with an irritable temper is more to be pitied than one bowed down to the earth with poverty. The latter evil can be ameliorated, while the former is a devil that makes havoc with all the fairer qualities of the heart and mind, taking the helm for reason, and running the possessor perpetually against rocks and rough corners. A petulent man in a fami ly of children, even of his own, is worse than a case of small pox, from his influence on their young minds, lhe old adage "As the old cock crows the young one learns," is a grand truth; and we see it here illustrated. Those old fellows that sputter and growl around their houses, are sure to bo imitated faithfully by the little watchers for parental squalls, and a nest of hornets is made where peace and harmony alone should dwell. The fractious should be consigned to valerian and penitence, and kept by force from spreading his contagion. What right has a man to poison the happiness any more than the food of his family ? The text might be applied to all relations of life where misery is cultivated, and growling made the order of all days. There are communities and parties where the old saw about "dogs with sore heads would give, but a faint indication of their condition of good nature more than any other phi'anthropie purpose. Thinning Fruit. Those cultivators who have not had much experience in raising fruit, neglect to thin it; consequently their fruit is inferior, both in size and quality, and the quan tity no larger. Owing to its inferiority, it sells at a much less price than it would under judi cious management. One peach-grower informed us that ho had taken off two-thirds of his peaches, and as they increased in size, and appeared too thick on the trees, he said that ho was sorry that he had not taken ofl one half of the other third. One man complained to his neighbor, that a certain varie ty of the peach, which his friend had advised him to cultivate, was a poor bearer. Stop your complaint " was the reply, " until you sell your fruit." He raised on tho tree three dozen of peaches, sold them at two dollars per dozen, and was satisfied. In many cases it is necessary to thin fruit, re ducing it sometimes to one half the specimens, and sometimes a still greater reduction is nec essary. Besides the injury to the fruit from too larrra a cron. the tree is also injured bv ex haustion, which will stint its growth, render it unhealthy, and cause light crops in future, par ticularlv in the next season. Experience in this business is necessary, for but very few persons can be taught by precepts the great importance of thinning fruit ; bo they will go on allowing too much to remain on the trees. mi mev uruuuuiiv icum, uuiu mucutc, good effects of thinning. New Eng. Far. Every condition has some troubles. RUST ON WHEAT. Since you have given a general invitation to one and ail, to contribute their mite, I will ven ture to ask a few questions concerning rust on wheat, and give my own opinion on the subject. In the first place, if rust is a parasitic plant, or fungus, that grows out of the earth, or atmos phere, or is produced from both, and feeds on vegetable matter, why does it attack a field of wheat in tho following manner, viz : in small sections, a spot here and another there, leaving the Btraw in its immediate vici-iity untouched. If it is a floating substance, that floats about in the air and feeds upon the plants that it comes in contact with, it certainly would not pitch down in spots upon a field of wheat, of a few feet in circumference, and leave the rest of the field untouched. For instance, on heavy tim bered land, wheat is often rusted in just such spots as I have described. Wherever the log heaps were burned, there the wheat grows more rapidjy than it does elsewhere, and, as a gener al thing, the Btraw is more or less rusted, while that immediately adjoining those spots is per fectly bright, tho berry plump and good, while on the rusted spots, lhe wheat is nominally good for nothing. In all soils, where there is a sur plus of vegetable mould, there is almost, in ev ery instance, a deficiency of lime, sand, potash, &c, which are very essential elements of the wheat plant. Now, I will venture to give mv opinion upon the subject. If. has been asserted that rust was never seen except in connection .. .:. I. i -i ! t t wiwi uoiiey uew, irom wnicn i am candidly con strained to dissent. I venture to say, that rust is seldom, if ever, seen, except in connection with hot, showery, sultry weather, such being exactly the kind to produce rust in all such land as 1 have described. Where there is'an excess of vegetable mould, the straw will shoot forth very rapidly in hot showery weather, and there being a lack of mineral substances, to give the straw a sufficient coating of glaze to prevent checking, by being exposed to the burning rays oi tne sun, the straw puts lorth very rapidly, is expanded to its fullest extent, is very tender, and when exposed to the burning heat of the sun, it must shrink as rapidly as it expanded; the outside drying faster than the inside, it must necessarily check the outside, and what is the result ? In my estimation, it is this ; that juice or sap, oozes out and dries on to the straw, for- ming what is called rust. Now mark, it has been asserted in a former number of the Far mer, by one of your worthy correspondents, that rust was never found under the husk, and I venture to say that the very thing that pre vents it from rusting is that very husk, that pre vents the heat of the burning 6iin from com ing immediately in contact with it ; for on the outside of the husk that shields the stalk, you will find plenty of rust. I think that the grouuds that your worty correspondent has ta ken, go iar as it regards rust never being-found under the husk, are exactly in keeping with my theory, and tully corroborate the grounds that 1 have taken. Cor. Mich. Farmer. Whe;i I see a boy in haste to spend every pen ny as soon as ho gets it, I think it is a sign that he will bo a spendthrift. When I see a boy hoarding up his pennies, and unwilling to spend them tor any good pur pose, I think it a sign that he will be a miser. When I see a boy always looking out. for him self, and disliking to share good things with oth ers, I think it a sign that he will grow up a very selfish person. When I see boys and girls often quarreling, I think it a sign that they will be violent and hate ful men and women. When I see a little boy willing to taste strong drink, I think it a sign that he will be a drunk ard. When I see a boy who never attends to the services of religion, and who is in tho habit of Sabbath breaking, I think it a sign that he wil be a profane man. When I seo a child obedient to his parents, I think it a sign of great future blessings. When I see a bov fond of the Bible, and well acquainted with it, I think it a sign that ho will be a pious man. And though great changes sometimes take place in the character, yet as a general rule,these signs do not fail. Witty sayings are as easily lost as the pearls slipping oft a broken string ; but a word ot kind ness is seldom spoken in vain. It is a seed which even when dropped by chance, springs up a flower. Bachelors may be known by their unpolished manners and generally lack buttons, while mar ried men are distinguished by their ease in la dies society, and domestic looking phizzcs. A weak mind is like a microscope, which mag nifies trifling things, but cannot receive great ones.

A weekly Journal, to be published 'in Washlnir- ton under the sanction of the Washington Nation al Monument Society. The Monument, edited and published bv James C- Pickett, is intended to be a literary, agricultural, and miscellaneous paper. It will contain select por tions oi mc iiicruiuru oi inuHy me nest that can Ikj found in American and European publications f foreign and domestic news ; a synopsis of the pro ceedings of Congress: and every thing that such a journal might be expected to contain, with the ex-- ceptlon or party pontics, wnicn wui De at au times most rigorously excluded. The Monument will be published for the express and sole purpose of aidmgln the erection of the no- bio column now rising eni the Dank of the Potomac n honor of the Father of his Country, and which every one who venerates the name of W shington will rejoice to see built. After deducting cut of tho subscription the expense or the journal proposed to be published, the remaining funds will be faith fully applied, and without reserve, to the purpose Indicated. The aid therefore, of all who are will- ing to contribute to so patriotic an object, and "ono so entirely national, is earnestly requested.- My subscribing to the Monument a valuable Journal's a low price is obtained, while it will be doing some thing at the same time towards completing that ma- estic memorial of the nation's gratitude. The Hoard of Managers recommend Mr. Pickett, fonnerly 4th Auditor of the Treasury and Charge d'Alfaircs to Peru, who proposes to edit and pub lish tho Monument Journal, as one well qualified to perform the duties of editor, and to conduct the pa per faithfully and satisfactorily to all subscribers. They assure their fellow citizens that this paper is not a speculation got up for Individual emolument. Mr. Pickett will make the experiment with his own means and at his own risk; and if successful he will receive nothing more, and he asks nothing more, than a very moderate compensation for his services. Not one dollar, therefore, of the direct subscription to the erection of the monument will be, in any event, applied to tho support ot the pa per, nor the Society in any manner held pecuniari- responsibie. To irivc the public on idea of what may be done with the jounial it is proposed to publish, it may be stated that a list of fifty thousand paying subscri bers, at two dollars each, will yield an annual prof it of from fifty to sixty thousand dollars. The Postmasters ond the secretaries ot oil organ ized bodies throughout the Union ore respectfully requested to act as agents in obtaining subscrip tions for this journal, thus aiding the great object of our exertions. As allcditors and publishers, on account of the object for which the Monument newspaper will be established, must wish it to succeed, it is hoped that they will contribute to its success by publishing this prospectus.

Tho Independent wus not established as a money making institution, but to give utterance to truth, according to the judgment of its editors, without reference to our opinions, or the pecuniary Interests of the Journal. Tc editors have the entire control of its columns hut have no pecuniary interest in the concern. The proprietors having confided the management of the paper unconditionally to the editors, are personally pledged for its support. Iu the results of this enterprise we have not been dis appointed. The first number was issued in Decem ber, 1818, without a subscriber. The Independent now has a circulation exceeding 5.000 andis stead ily increasing. Although sold at 25 per cent, less than the nominal price of 6ome other religious pa pers of the same class. The Independent contains about one third more matter than most of them. Though tho proprietors have been unknown to the great body of the readers of the paper, and have never obtruded their own position and agency up on them, they have taken great pleasure in contrib uting of their means to provide for thousands a good religious journal, and will spare no expense hereafter to make that journal the best which the country affords.
