paration which can only be gained l?y deeds
of arms. No matter how national honor
may bo sacrificed, and how the lives of our
citizens may be imperii led in every seinibarous
couulry, diplomatic notes must be
written, and when they fail, special envoys,
as in the foul Panama case, must bo sent
to talk with the mongrel people who laugh
at the idea of giving redress to a government
who lias forgotten bow to enforce
it.
The citizen of tlio United States has r.
right to look upon himself as the foremost
man in all the world. Is lie viewed in this
light by others ? Unless we content ourselves
with reading after dinner speeches at
public banquets, where our ministers flat
y ter the country in which he sojourns to
r the utmost extent of his power of diplomatic
lying, and in return receives equally extravagant
compliments, wc must answer the question
in the negative. The American citizen
is systematically calumniated abroad : and
this will ever be tlie case while our government
fails 10 earn for itself common respect.
"While our people are by the very force of
circumstances the most progressive, our
government is tbe most traditional. It
seems to think that a glorious past must be
succeeded by an ignoble future.
The Secretary of the Treasury is ahvayB
very busy in over-laxing the people, for a
surplus in tbe exchequer is the fruit of
over-taxation. Then the spoilsmen in Congress
squabble about the means of misusing
this surplus, and public time is lost for private
peculation. The Secretary of the Navy
sends ships on pleasure cruises, but nevor
stations litem where they are urgently required.
The Secretary of War acts always
as if he were a disciple of the peace
party.
For the Secretary of State, sometimes
called by courtesy the Premier, owing,
propably, to his always being the last to

not very high esteem of lato years, lie is
like a decoction of poppies, extremely soporific/
lie writes never ending documents,
that produce either sleep or vexation.?
Questions, such as that of Central America,
become more and more entangled, and finally
wo arc at a loss to decido, whether the
Secretary considers the Monroo doctrinc
treasonable or patriotic.
Mr. Buchanan can do much to restore
public confidence by letting the Govern'
inent keep paco with the people on ever)
matter of national import. All that if
wanted is a President who will show thai
ho is the head of the country. The head
should think more than it slumbers. Thor(
are matters enough to be decided now, botl
nt homo and abroad, to call forth all th<
energies of a statesman. Cuba, Mexico
Nicaragua, Panama, are all names of stir
ring import. The removal of absurd im
posts, retained solely to fill tlio pockets o
Northern manufacturers at tho expense o
the South ; the protection of our seahorad
the increase of our navy, and tho 6peedj
completion of a road through tho wholi
heart of the country, are measures urgently
desired. Let the President, while still hi
enjoys the generous support of the people
show that he fully sympathises with then
in all their ennobling aspirations. A

men went into the flames together, and,
walking at a very moderate pace, performed
the distance several times. At the end of
sixty seconds, tho hoy shrieked out, and the
fireman who carried hiru immediately
stepped out of the thunes. The hoy was
examined, but was found perfectly uuinjurcd
; his skin wos cool, and his pulse, which
was at 84 before the experiment, had only
risen to 9G; he might therefore have resis
ted longer had he not been frightened at
seeing tho flames meet over his head, while
at the same time one of the ropes which
held the basket had slid down the fireman's
shoulder a little with a slight shock. A few
minutes after he was as gay as ever, and betrayed
no signs of indisposition. The fireman's
pulse, which was 92 before, was 116
after the experiment. Tho other three men
remained 2 minutes and 44 seconds in the
flames, and stated, on coming out, that thev
had experienced no particularly painful sensation
except that of excessive heat. Their
pulses, which were 88, 84, and 72 before,
were respectively 152, 138, and 124 after.

JTvpc.?There is no temper so generally
indulged as hope; other passions operate
by starts on particular occasions, ot in
certain parts of life; but hope begins with
the first power of comparing our actual
with our possible slate, and attends us
through every stage and period," always
urging us forward to now acquisitions and
holding out some distant blessing, to our,
view, promising us cither relief from pain,
or increase of happiness.
IIopo is necessary in every condition.
, The miseries of poverty, of sickness, of captivity,
would, without this comfort, be un,
supportable; nor does it appear that the
. happiest lot of terrestrial cxistenco can Bet
r us above the want of general blessing; or
, that life, when the gift of nature and of
I fortune aro accumulated upon it, would
| not still be wretched, were it elevated and
i delighted by the expectation of somo new
, possession, of some enjoyment yet behind,
3 by which the wish shall be at last satisfied
t and the heart filled up to the utmost ex.
tent.

A HOMfc WITHOUT A DAUUHTKU
"A lioltto without II n'ul ill il in only half

mid a spring without noiig. A house full
u|' buiis in liku IJohauoii with its eodnrs, hilt
daughter* l>y the fireside, nro liku tlio rose
in Slutroli."
j Well may tlio daughter of tlio household
I l'o compared to tlio apple-blossom*, springsongs
niul tlio rose* of Sharon. Whon she
j is tlioro, tlio oyo and tlio car of those who
love her aro satisfied ; when she departs, sho
carries with her the golden treasures that
she was wont lo dispense.
lfoys may not lack attection, but llioy
may lack tenderness. Tliey may not be
wanting in inclination to contribute their
qnoto to the Paradise of Home, but tlioy
may bo wanting in the ability to carry out
their inclination. The sou of a household
is like a young and vigorous sapling?the
daughter is liko a fragile vine. Their natures
are different?their constitutions, temperament,
tastes, habits, are different. We
may not love C;esar less if we lovo Home
more.
i We know a homo which oneo rejoiced
in the sunny smiles and the musical accents
of an only daughter. She was a lovely
child?womanly beyond her years?
" Full of gentleness, of calmest hope,
Of sweet mi J ijuiet J??y!*'
The child never bieathed who evinced
a more affectionate revereuce, or a more
reverential affection fur hor uriienLs limn ....J
she. Instead of waiting for their commands
sho anticipated tliem?instead of
lingering until they made known their
wishes, sho studied thuir wishes out. Morning
broke not in that household until she .
awoke?the night was not dark until her
eyes were closed. How they loved her!
her father and her mother; and of how
many blessed pictures of the future was she
tlio subject. " It is a fearful tiling that
Love ami Death dwell in the same world,"
says Mrs. Ilctnaus. "Fearful!" It is
maddening?it is a truth that is linked with
despair.
Suddenly, like a thief in the nighl, there
came a messenger from Heaven for the
child?saying that tlio Lord had need of
her. She meekly bowed her head?breathed
out her little life?and, at midnight, "went
forth to meet the Bridegroom." The last
minute of tho last hour of the last day of
the month was hallowed by her death.?
She went, and came back no more !
Years havo worn away since IIicp. but
still there is agony in the household whose
sun went down when sho departed. The
family circle is incomplete?there is no
daughter there ! The form that onco was
hers reposes amid tho congenial charms of
nature and of art; they havo made the
place of her rest beautiful. If tho grass
grows rank upon her grave, it is becausc it
is kept wet with tears.
Of truth, "A home without a girl in it
is Only half blest; it is an orchard without
blossoms, and a spring without song. A
house full of sons is like Lebanon, with its
cedars, but daughters by the fireside, arc
liko roses in Sharon."?Syracuse Journal.
Pure Air?Whatever renders tho blood
impure tends to originate consumption.?
Whatever makes the air impure,- ^ makes
the blood impure. It is "jhe air wo
breathe which purifies the-blood. And as,
if the water wo uap to wash ourclotliing is
dirty, it is impossible to wash tho clothing
? :r .1 ? 1
uiuau, bu u iuu uir wo ureamo is impure, it
is impossible for it to abstract tlio impurities
from the blood.
"What then aro some of the more prominent
things which render the air impure ?
It is tbe nature of still water to become
impure. It is the nature of still air to
bccome impure. Running water purifies
itself. Air in motion, drafts nf nir om
self-purifiers. Thus it is that the air of a
closo room becomes impure inevitably.?
Thus it is that closo rooms bring consumption
to countless thousands, llcnco all
rooms should be so constructed as to have
I a constant draftj of air passing through
them. The neglect of it murders myriads.
A man of ordinary size renders a hogshead
of air unfit for breathing, consumes its
blood-purifying qualities every hour, so
perfectly, that if a man could *e-breathe a
full breath of his own next'instant after
its expiration without any intermixture
with the outer air, ho would bo instantly
suffocated, llencc sleeping in close>rooms
even though alone, or sitting for a very
short time in a crowded vehicle or among
a largo assembly is perfectly corrupting to
the blood. Close bedrooms make the

is love; for that she will resign self, will,

withhold that, and heap on her wealth,
splendor, pleasure in every form, and you :

amid abundance, and envies the
very beggar in the streets, if the latter possess
the blessing of connubial love.
Sutuna, Fisherman:?I was some time
since walking upon the wlmrf where a fishing
boat lay, and as 1 was passing and re
passing, the master was uttering tremendous j
oaths. At length I turned to him and
standing besido his boat, said : i
"Sir, I am unacquainted with yourbusi- 1
ness. What kind of fish are these ?" i
" They are codfish," replied ho.
" J Tow long are you usually out, in order <
to obtain your load 2"
"Two or tlireo weeks," he answered.
" At what price do you sell them J"
Ho informed me.
" Well, liavo you had hard work to ob- i
tain a living in this way !"
i es, uaru work," said he.
" With what do you bait these fish ?
" With clauis."
" Did you ever catch mackerel
" Yes,"
" Well, now, did you ever catch a fiah
without bait V1
" Yes," said he, " I was out last year, and
one day when I was fixin' my lino thebaro
hook fell into the water, and the fool took
hold of it, and I drow him in."
" Now, sir," said I, " I have often thought
that Satan was very much like a fisherman,
lie always baits his hook with that kind of
bait which different sorts of sinners like
best, but went he can catch a profane
swearer, he docs not take the troube to put
on bait at all, for a lbol will always bile at
the bare hook"
lie was silent. His conntfln?nr?.n wns
solemn; and after a pause, as I turned to
go away, I hoard him say to one standing
by him?
" I guess that's a minister."
Fuels about Milk.?Cream cannot rise
through a great depth of milk. If, therefore,
milk is desired to' retain its crejun
for a timo, it should bo. put iut<5 a deep?
narrow dish ; and if it be desired to free it
most completely of cream, it should be
poured into a broad, flat.-dish, not much
exceeding one iucb in depth. The evolution
of cream is facilitated by a rise, and
retarded by a depression, of tomperature.
At the usual temperaturo of thV dairy
? fiftv derrrcoa of FnhrftnTimf.:?nil fclio
cream wilt probably rise in thirty-six hours;
but in seventy degrees, it wilPrisS in half
that time; and when tho inilk is kept near
tho freezing point, tlio cream will risovery
lowly, because it becomes solidified
In wet and cold weather the milk is less
rich than in dry and warm, and on this
account, less cheese is obtained in cold
than in warm, though not thundery, weather.
The season has its effects. The milk in
spring is supposed to bo the best for drink
ing, hence it would be- the best for calves?.
in summer it iMhe beat suited for cheese;
and in autumn, the butter for keeping is
bettor than that of summer. The cows
loss frequently milked, give richer milk,
and, consequently, more butter. Tho morning's
milk is richer than tho evening's.
The last drawn of each milking, at all times
and seasons, is richer than tho first drawn,
which is tho poorest.
, ?;
Assiduity and Perseverance.?Tho most
usual way among young roon who have no
resolution of their own. is. first to nsk one
frieyJ's advico, and follow it for somo time;
thon%>ynsk advice of another, and turn to
that; aVof?a Qiird; still unsteady, always

change-of this nature <is for The worse.?
People may toll you of j^ur being unfit for

with perseverance and assiduity will be
found fit for you, it will be your support in
