. ;to kate-a parody. ,
' I'm thinking of the time, Kute,
When eltting by thy side,
And picking beans, I gazed on thee,
And felt a peacock's pride
In silence leaned we o'er the pan,
And neither spoke a word;
But the rattling of the beans, Kate,
"Was all the sound I heard.
Thv auburn curls hung down, Kate,
And kissed thy lily cheek ;
Thy azure eyes, half filled with tears,
Bespoke a spirit meek
To be so charmed as I was then,
Had ne'er before occurred
When the rattling of the beans, Kate,
Was all the sound I heard.
I thought it was so wrong, Kate,
So, leaning o'er the dish,
As you snatched up a lot of beans,
I snatched a nectar'd kiss
A sudden shower made blind my eyes,
I neither saw nor 6tirred ;
But the rattling of the beans, Kate,
Was all the sound I heard.
A Good Name. " A good name is rather to
he chosen than great riches, and loving favor
rather than silver." So said the inspired pen
man, and surely we must acknowledge that he
was capable of judging correctly. And in what
does a good name consist. Is it in leaving
wealth and worldly honors behind us when we
sink into the grave ? Is it in the funeral eulo
gy that is spoken above tho dust of the rich
and the powerful of tho earth, or in the splen
did mausoleum that is reared above their heads
to perpetuate their imaginary virtues? A good
name consists not in these. The great of the
earth are seldom the good, while the good rare
ly stand upon fames of dizzy eminence. They
choose tho humble walks of life, blessing the
poor and needy, and carrying joy to many a
lonely heart and when, at length, they rest in
the quiet grave-yard, the poor come and drop a
tear of sympathy for them.
A good namo will never die. It will live
long after "life's fitful fever' shall have ended,
and when its possessor lies mouldering beneath
the clods of tho valley; death cannot destroy
it, neither can the grave annihilate it. It will
rise triumphant o'er decay and the tomb, and
soar above the narrow confines of tho grave,
and stand a beacon light forever.
-Let us scan tho past history of tho world,
nncTfceeiwho are the great and who are the good.
First in ranlc.of worldly heroes stands Alexan
der. He was great. He trod tho bloody battle-field,
a victoriousonquerer, and the sack
cloth that covered tho landbut freely portrayed
tho bitter lamentations of Jho heart. He sub
dued tho world ; tho poor peasant who earned
his daily bread by tho sweat of his brow, and
the haughty Emperor, alike paid his homage.
But his was worldly greatness, and it gave no
lasting satisfaction, and when he had conquer
ed the world ho sat down and wept that there
were no more worlds. Tho martyrs to the
Christian faith who suffers so much, found more
real enjoyment than all tho Alexanders or Na
poleons that the world ever produced. They
possessed the richest of heaven's blessings, a
good name. And it still lives, and it will live
till earth shall be chaos, and tho elements shall
melt with fervid heat. Were I to chooso one
gift from the thousands that are proffered to
us, it would be a good Tihmc one that would
live long after my heart had ceased to beat, and
tho worms had crowded into my silent abode.
New Priming for Fire Arms. It would
seem by a statement in the National Intelligen
cer that tho use of percussion caps for fire arms
is about to bo superseded by a new and far
more efficient priming, which is reported as be
ing 6afer than the cap; easily understood, and
when once applied to the gun, lasts, without
tho necessity of being touched bv the hand, for
tho duration of tho longest battle. This new
invention has been tested for four months in
practical field service by the U. S. troops in
Texas, and the result was highly satisfactory,
so much so that tho Board of Examination,
consisting of distinguished officers of the army
and navy, reported in favor of the purchase of
the patent right for tho use of tho government,
which was done. The invention is said to bo
extremely simple ; it changes neither tho mod
el, weight, nor action of tho gun, and is appli
cable to any kind of fire-arms.
Tho very slight increased cost of the arm up
on this system is so inconceivable as to be cov
ered by the saving of five hundred primers, these
costing less than one-fourth as much as caps.
By this invention, tho gun is made to priino it
self, and the immense rapidity of firing is re
ported to be from twenty-five to thirty percent,
ordinarily, and under some circumstances which
embarrass tho soldier, tho increase would be
somo hundreds per cent. This invention has
in several instances been applied to sporting
guns, and has met an unanimous approval from
those sportsmen who have used it.
The first Locomotive in America. Tho
first locomotive ever used in tho United States
is still in good running order, on tho Little
Schuylkill Railroad. It was built in Liverpool,
by Edward Bury. At that time it was necessa
ry to send a man from England to put tho en
gine in running order on the road. It was but
twenty years ago that Edward Bury's engine
was first plaoed upon our road. Sinco then
tho iron track has been extended throughout
our land ; tho fierce breathing of tho iron horse
is heard in almost every valley; tho ingenuity
of our mechanics enable them to supply our
own engines, and furnish them to nations across
the ocean. We're a progressive people.
What a singular medley a newspaper must
be !: In one column you will find a labored and
swelling eulogy of departed greatness, appa
rently written with tears and inspired with sor
row; in tho next, appears the history of the
crops ; anon occurs a witticism ; next comes a
circus, puff, or a recommeudation of ice-cream ;
then follow the marriages and deaths. All
tastes (or no tastes at all) must be consulted.
Sorrow and fun, business and nonsense must
all find a place in tho folio of four pages, or
people will "stop the paper."
When once infidelity can persuade men that
they shall dio like beasts, they will soon be
brought to live like them also.
Strength of resolution is, in itself, dominion,
and ability ; and thcro is a seed of sovereignty
in the barrenness of unflinching determination.
Two sons of Gen. Lopez are among1 the stu
dents of the College of St. Xavicr, in Cincin
A Fair Incident. Detroit has many gallant
sons, but none more so than Lieut., who be
ing in the hall of fine Arts upon the Fair grounds
on Thursday, at an hour when tho place was
one universal "jam," found himself next to a
very pretty young mother, who was leading a
little girl by the hand, and carrying an interest
ing babe upon her arm. Finding the elder child
in danger of being trodden upon by the crowd,
she turned towards our military friend, and re
quested him with a sweet smile to take her
babe what could he do less than comply?
Being invested with this small command of in
fantry, he commenced moving toward the door,
to which tho steps of the mother were also
tending; but before it was accomplished, the
shifting surges of the crowd had parted them
and when the outside was gained no mother
was to be found. We found our gay bachelor
standing in the full view of forty ot his most
charming female acquaintances, toying tho ba
by and crying h sh ! h sh 1 in a most father
ly manner; but the more he cried h sh the
more it wouldn't stop bawling at the top of its
lungs, when, after turning his eyes in all direc
tions over the field in a vain search for tho miss
ins dame, he rushed up to the entry clerk, who
observing his dilemma and anticipating his
question, cried out:
" No use Lieutenont, it is too late too make
any new entries, and that production of yours
though doubtless very fine, mut nevertheless
bo sent away sorry lor it, very. 1 he distrac
ted dry nurse was next seen pushing frantically
towards a lady and child, who were standing at
a distance, upon reaching them, they were not
tho ones he was seeking. Meantime the crowd
had thinned off the people were going or gone
and tho distressed bachelor had no resort but to
call a cab and take his screaming charge to the
city. He was last seen enquiring for Bateman's
Drops and Mothers Relief at an apothecary
shop. Det. Advertiser.
Carrying Bundles. Many people have a
contemptible fear of being seen to carry any
bundle however small, having the absurd idea
that there is a social degradation in the act.
The most trifling as well as weighty packages
must bo sent to them, no matter how much to
the inconvenienco of others. This arises from
a low kind of pride. Thero is a pride that is
higher; that arises from a consciousness of
there being something in the individual not to
be affected by such accidents worth and weight
This latter prido was exhibited by the Amer
ican son of Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte; while
he was in College at Cambridge, he was one
day carrying to his room a broom ho had just
purchased, when ho met a friend, who noticing
the broom with surprise, exclaimed, " Why did
you not have it sent homo V
" I am not ashamed to carry home anything
which belongs to me, was the sensible reply
ol voung Bonaparte.
Very different pride was this from that of a
young lady whom we know, who always gave
her mother all tho bundles to carry when thev
went out together, because she thought it vu
gar to be seen with one herself.
New Motive Power. The editor of the
Pcnnsyhanian visited a machine shop on the
17th to witness the working of a new motive
power, the invention of Dr. Richardson, of N.
Orleans. Its success is regarded as beyond a
doubt. I he propelling element, we inter, is at
mosperic air. One gentleman, who has watch
cd the inventor, up to the present point, says it
will seriously threaten tho subversion of steam
and coal, and cumbrous engines, and furnaces,
and fire, and filth, and weight, and smoke, and
heat, and all other parts of the dangerous and
bulky paraphernalia now incident to the most
improved modes ot locomotion. The invention
will enable the whole space between decks in
a ship, to bo gained, free of any incumbrance,
as the whole machinery used may be placed in
the bottom of the ship, below the water line.
It avoids tho danger of fire, as no fire is used.
In point of cost it will bo much less than the
cost of steam. It avoids the danger of boilers
bursting, as no boilers are used. Any extent
of power may bo had, and tho sources of this
power can be realized any and evry where, wheth
er by sea or by land. It will insure power and
speed safety and comfort.
Sheep Sheds. We have repeatedly urged
upon our readers the propriety of erecting sheds
for the winter keeping of their sheep, as well
upon tho score of humanity as upon that of
economy. We have been long since convinced
that animals can subsist upon much less food
when protected by cover from the cold and in
clemency of the winter, by warm quarters, than
when exposed in tho open air. Casting theory
aside, two recent experiments made in England
demonstrated tho truth of our position so clear
ly as not to leave a loop to hang a doubt upon.
The first is an experiment made by Wal
banko Childes, Esq., member of Parliament.
He had forty sheep of equal size and weight
selected ; twenty were fed in the open field, tho
other twenty in a rough shed; yet the latter,
although they received one-fourth less food
than tho former, showed an increase of 20 stone
more in tho short space of four months.
The second experiment was made by Lord
Dubie; ono hundred sheep kept in the open
fields consumed tvent3r-four pounds of Swe
dish turnips daily, each, while a second hun
dred, protected by a covered shed, only consu
med twenty daily, each.
Tho reason of this difference in tho quanti
ty of food is obvious the excess goes to keep
up tho animal heat, instead of being appropria
ted to the increase of flesh, muscles ana fat.
Self-Moving Carriage. Tho Paris corres
pondent of tho Philadelphia Bulletin, in a letter
Two years sinco I described for an American
paper the self-moving carriage of M. Provost.
Since that time M. Provost has traveled in it
over a great part ot t ranee, visiting lours,
Saumur, Orleans, Chatres, Havre and other pla
ces, lie is now in Paris on his way to uor-
deaux. Ho travels with ease to himself, for
tho force is not tho muscular 6tregth applied to
pedals or cranks, but the weight of his person
which puts in movement the machinery, on much
the same principle of a clock. On ordinary
roads (they are macadamized in Franco) M. Pro
vost travels from 6ixty to eighty milca a day.
The carriage is about six feet by three, and the
machinery not visible from the outside.

The Indevendent was not established as a moncyv
making institution,, but to give utterance to truth, .
according to the judgment of its editors,, without
reference to our opinions, or the pecuniar! iatcrcsts
of the Journal. The editors have the entire control
of its columns buff have no pecuniary interest in
tlie concern. The sroprietors having confided the
management of tlfe paper unconditionally to the
editors, are personnfly pledged for its support. In
tlie results of this enterprise we have not been dis
appointed. The first number was issued in? Decem
ber. 1818. without a'subscriberl The Idecndent
now has a circulatlom exceeding 5,000 ami Is stead
ily increasing.. Although sold at 25 per1 cent, less
tbnn the nominal price of some other religious pa-
pers of the same class. The Independent contains
about one third more matter than most of them.
Thouch the proprietors have been unknown to
tho great body of the readers of the paper, and have'
never obtruded their own position and agency up--on
them, they hare taken great pleasure in contrib-;
utftng of their means to- provide for; thousands a
good religious journal,' and will spare no expense
