Angels guard its strength and grace In the palace, cottage, hovel, O, no matter where this place ! Would that never storms assailed it ; Rainbows ever gently curled ; For the hand that rocks t.he cradle Is the hand that rocks the world. Infancy's the tender fountain , Power may with Beauty flow : Mothers first to guide the streamlets; From them souls unresting grow, Grow on for the good or evil, Sunshine streamed or darkness hurled ; For the hand that rocks the cradlo Is the hand that rocks the world. Woman, how divine your mission Here upon our natal sod ! Keep, O keep the young heart open Always to the breath of Ood ! All true ttophies of the Ages Are from Mother Love im pearled ; For the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rocks the world. Blessings on the hand of Woman ! Fathers, sons and daughters cry, And the sacred song is mingled With the worship in the sky, Mingles where no tempest darkens, Rainbows evermore are hurled ; For the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rocks the world.

Why should young ladies set good examples? Because young men are so apt to follow them. Souls cleft asunder" is the head ing used liy the Washington Capital for its divorce report.

In Kansas City, Mo., it is estima ted that $200,000 capital has been sunk in trying to establish unsuccess ful newspapers. Des Moines, Iowa, has, like In dianapolis, got a 13 year old school girl who stands six feet high in her hose. George D. Prentice once said that "Daniel Webster was the only man who could be lionized without grow ing vain about it." The next time Vice-President Col fax addresses a Sunday-school he's going to lay his. hand on his heart and warn the dear children against the vile practice of keeping a memorandum-book. George Driver, of Chicago, who has just been sentenced to be hanged for the murder of his wife, was con victed on the evidence of his two children one fourteen, the other nine. Five Steps to the uailows. A man who had committed mur der, was tried, found guilty and con demned to be hanged. A few days before his execution, upon the walls of his prison, he drew the figure of a man hanging on a gallows, with five steps leading up to it. On the first step he wrote : Diso bedience to parents. Solomon says : "The eye that mocketh at his father and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valleys shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it" that is, he shall perish by a violent death, he shall come to a miserable, wretched end. On the second step he wrote : Sabbath breaking. God. in his com mand, said : "Remember the Sab bath dajr to keep it holy." Visit your prisons and jails, and you will find that nine-tenths of its inmates have begun their downward course by breaking this command. On the third step he wrote : Gambling and drunkenness. The late Dr. Nott, for more than fifty years president of Union College, having been a close observer of hu man events, truly says : "The fin ished gambler has no heart. He would play at his brother's funeral ; he would gamble upon his mother's coffin." Several years ago, a boy was hung for killing his little brother. When on the gallows, the sheriff said : "If you have anything to say. speak now, for you have only five minutes to live." The boy, bursting into tears, said : "I have to die. I had only one little brother ; he had beautiful blue eyes and flaxen hair, and I loved him. But one day I got drunk, for the first time in my life, and coming home, I found him gath ering strawberries in the garden. I became angry with him without a cause, and I killed him aj one blow with a rake. I did not know an--thing about it till the next morning, when I awoke frorn sleep, and found myself tied and guarded, and was told that when my little brother was found, his hair was clotted with his blood and brains and he was dead. Whisky had done this. It has ruin ed me. I never was drunk but once. I have only one more word to say, and then I am going to my final Judge.. I say it to j'oung people: Never, never, never touch anything that can intoxicate '." On the fourth step he wrote : Murder. God's command is ; "Thou shall not kill." To prevent, men from unlawfully taking the life of his fellow-man, God has annexed an awful penalty : "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed." On the fifth step he wrote : The fatal platform. It is impossible for us to form a correct idea of the ' thoughts that must rush through the mind of a man under such circum-! stances the disgrace and ignominy ' attached to his name ; the pains and agony of such a death ; the want of i sympathy in the community around him ; the fearful forebodings of his ' guilty soul before the bar of a holy God. T li : tL. I . e va luiieu iu tue eariy part oi i my ministry to write the confession ! of a murderer, and attend him on j the gallows. II is name was Moses Lyons. He, when drunk, murdered I his wife. Being maddened by liquor, he seized her by the hair and jam- j med her head on the hearth until she was dead. Two men who were passing by, hearing her shrieks, rushed in and caught him in this murderous, brutal act. I visited him in jail, from time to time, with a view of leading hiai to Christ. In his confession he said : "She is dead, I must have done it, but I know nothing about it." His mind was so stupefied by rum that under the evil spirit he committed this bru tal, this horrid deed. Alluding to his parents, he says : "The advice of my dear parents to serve God I did not listen to. Oh, had I done so, I should not have come to this shameful end. They have gone to their graves peace be to them. Could I visit the spot where they lie buried, I would bathe their graves with my tears." He had two daugh ters ; when he spoke of them he wept aloud. After a long pause he said : "I hope the world will not visit on them the iniquity of their father. Parents, bring up your chil dren in the nurture and admonition of the Lord ; set a good example before them ; do wot to them as I have done to mine. Children, obey vour parents in the Lord ; listen to their counsel and advice ; look at me. and see my fate for not walking as my parents directed me." A spiritual marriage took place last week in Titusville. A lady me dium, who professes to be a spiritual minister, performed the ceremony. A sheriff in Florida who received a letter intimating that his resignation would meet with the approval of the Governor, wrote back to say that it would not meet with his own. GAZETTE What My Cook Said. There's nobody, mum, that's so put upon as a cook, and cooking is a bizziness that nobody never makes 'lowances for. Most o bizziness can be done at one time's well's 'nother. My brother now is a car penter, and he don't have to git a door done by quarter past 6, or else the door be spiled. And there's Biddy, the chambermaid, if she don't finish sweeping a room when she ought to, the carpet won't go back to wool, or shrivel up to a crisp. And if she make3 a bed all wrong from top to toe she don't have to throw the sheets away nothin's hurt, and she just goes to work and makes it over again. But if J makes a bad mistake like that in a piece of meat, wh' in course it's spiled in tirely, and don't the best of folks make mistakes sometimes, mum? If I begins a roast just a trifle too soon its spiled, and if T begins it just a trifle too late it's spiled all the same, or else folks is in a pet because I makes 'em wait a bit for it. I know in a gin'ral way by the looks of a piece of meat just how long, twill take to roast, but things don't allurs work as a body calc'lates sometimes the meat weighs a half pound more or les3, and sometimes the fire gits contrary. Most o' my work, and roastin' in partiklar the things most folks gits Grossest about can't be done and put away till it's wanted, like dish-washing, and ironing, and sewing. It's to be done just'to a turn, and just to a minit. A roast must go right strait from the fire to the table, as you know, mum, yourself, and some times folks is a little longer than common over the soup and fish, and how am I to know, mum? And then, if the meat is a little over done, it's "That miserable cook can't even roast a piece of beef right !" And if it's taken from the fire, and kept hot, why that's just as bad, and it's "That miserable cook ! she has contrived to git the flavor out of the meat !" And if they are ready too soon, and the meat is too rare, it's 'That miserable cook !" again. Seems to me that ladies and gentle men as is ladies and gentlemen might think a bit how hard it is on the cook and have a bit o' patience, and instead o' saying, "That misera ble cook !" might be a talkin' pleas ant among themselves, and wait a few minutes if the meat isn't ready to the minit, for you know, mum, it's an old sayin', "It is better to wait for the roast than to make the roast wait for us." Hearth and Home. "An Honest Man," &c Old Judge W., of the Old Domin ion, was a character. He was a law yer, legislator, Judge, and leading politician among the old time Whigs of blessed memory ; but, alas ! like them, his glory departed, and like many others of his confreres, has gone "where the woodbine twineth." Notwithstanding the loss of proper ty and the too free use of apple jack, he maintained the dignity of ex-Judge, dressed neatly, carried a gold headed cane, and when he had taken more than his us-ual allowance of the favorite beverage, he was very pious at times, always attending church, and sitting, near the stand as erectly as circumstances would admit, and responding fervently. On one occasion a Baptist brother was holding forth with energy and unction on the evils of the times, and in one of his flights he exclaim ed, "Show me a drunkard !" The Judge rose to his feet, and, unstead ily balancing himself on his cane, said, solemnly, "Here I am, sir ; here I am !" The elder though a good deal nonplussed by the unex pected response, managed to go on with his discourse, and soon warming up to his work, again called out. "Show me a hypocrite ! Show me a hypocrite ! Show me a hypocrite !" Judge W. again arose, and reached forward across a seat which interven ed, touched Deacon D. on the shoul der with hiat-cane, and said, "Dea con D., why don't you respond? Why don't you respond? I did when they called me?" Kusbln's VU-w of Writing. Mr. Ruskin now writes : "I was w obliged to write too young, when I j knew only half truths, and was eager to set them- forth by what 1 1 thought fine words. People used j to call me a good writer then ; now they say I can't write at all ; because, ' for instance, if I think anybody's ! house is on fire, I only say, "Sir, your house is on fire ;" whereas for merly I dsed to sayfSir, the abode where you probably passed the de-' lightful days of youth is. in a tate of inflammation," and everybody used to like the effect of the two p's ' in "probably passed," and of the two 1 d's in "delightful days." A western women whipped a man who had slandered her husband. She was arrested ancLj&ned, and her un grateful spouse fefoses to pay the fine. I Two Dollars a Year. A Mule that Died of Fright and a Broken Heart. The Memphis Appeal is responsi ble for the following : Last. Saturday a gentleman living near Madison Station, on the Mem phis and Little Rock road, left his home to go to the village. He had not proceeded more thair two hun dred yards, mounted on a lineal de scendant of Balaam's ass, when he encountered a great, greasy, black bear. The bear was astonished, and, without taking time to think, hurried up a scaly -bark hickory, and seated himself very comfortably on a limb thirty or forty feet from the ground. The farmer was complete ly puzzled. If he rode back to his house to get his gun the bear would surely escape. He therefore tied the mule, a long-eared, melancholy mule, forty or fifty years of age, to the body of the tree. The mule was bridle-wise, but no bridle would hold him, and a strong leathern cable was kept coiled about his neck. With this he was fastened to the tree. The farmer started to the house, and Bruin, divining his plans, deemed it proper to get away. He doubtless suspected that a gun was coming. He came slowly- down, tearing the bark from the body of the tree. It rattled about the sleepy mule's head, who had not yet seen the bear, and dreamed not of the proximity of the ugly beast. The bear descended slowly, till he was within five feet of the mule's great, ugly head. Then it was that the stupid, innocent, unsuspecting mule looked up. He had never seen a bear before. His knees smote one another. He grew pale in the face. His eyes were projected' from his head the farmer said half a foot. His tail was slowly lifted, the hairs all turned awry, till it stood at an angle of forty-five degrees above his spinal column, and then it was that the mule "hoved a sigh and smole a smile." It was an unearthly sound ; the farmer, fifty yards awa) says it shook the ground where he stood watching the progress of events. The bear suddenly twisted itself about and re-ascended to its perch. The mule swooningly fell at the base of the tree. He lay still and ap parently lifeless for a time, when Bruin again attempted the descent ; but the terrified mule howled and roared even more terribly and pit eously when the barkbegan to fall, and he dashed and danced about the tree so frantically that Bruin hesita ted, and finally in stupified amaze ment sat upon the limb upon which he first rested. The farmer came with his rifle, and a bullet soon stopped the pulse-beats of the bear. It fell heavily beside the mule, and strange to tell, as told to us, the mule and boar died side by side the one of a mortal wound, the other of mortal terror. The bear was still black as Erebus the mule's face was already white with an indescribable, agony of mortal fear. The "Fat Sheep." Some twenty -five years ago, when I was a pastor of a church in , I took occasion one evening to visit a social meeting, in the church-occasions. One after another gave in his or her experience. After a time a man in humble circumstances, small in stature, and effeminate, squeaking voice, rose to give a piece of his ex perience, which was done in the fol lowing manner : "Brethren, I have been a member ot this church many years. I have seen hard timei. My family have been much afflicted, but 1 have, for the first time in my life, to see my pastor or the trustees of this church cross the threshold of my door." No sooner had he uttered this part of his experience than he was interrupted by one of the trustees, an aged man, who rose np and said in a firm, loud voice : "My dear brother you must put the devil behind you." On taking his seat, the pastor in charge arose and replied to the little man as follows : "My dear brother, yoa must re member that we shepherds are sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Whereupon the little man arose again, and in answer, said in a very loud tone of voice. "Yes, and if Td been a fat one, you'd have found me long ago." The effect'upon the audience can better be imagined that described. A Leavenworth editor keeps a live wide-awake hornet chained to a chair in his sanctum. When a bore comes in he invites him to sit down. Not One has yet needed an invitation to get up. A Baltimore woman, lodged in jail as a common scold, fell in love with and courted a petty thief in that institution, ajnd married him at the expiration of her term of impris onment, He has since disappeared with all of her available means ADVIIRTISING RATES.

As a. work of art, I know few things more pleasing to the eye, or naore capable of affording scope c;id gratification to a taste for the beauti ful than a well situated, well cultiva ted farm. The man of refinement will hang with never-wearied gaze on a landscape by Claude or Salvator ; the price of a section of the most fertile land in the West would not purchase a few square feet of the canvass on which these great artist have depicted a rural scene. But nature has forms and proportions be yond the painter's skill ; her diviee pencil touches the landscape with living lights and shadows, never mingled on his pallet. What is there on earth which can more entirely charm the eye, or gratify the taste, than a noble farm? It stands upon the southern slope, gradually rising with variegated a scent from the plain, sheltered from the north-western winds by woody heights, broken here and there with moss-covered boulders, which impart variety and strength to the outline. The native forest has been clear ed from the greater part of the farm, but a suitable portion, carefully tend ed, remains in wood for economical purposes, and to give a picturesqne effect to the landscape. The eye ranges round three-fourths of the horizon over a fertile expanse bright with the cheerful waters of a rippling stream, a generous river, or a gleaming lake ; dotted with ham lets, each with its modest spire ; and, if the farm lies in the vicinity of the coast, a distant glimpse from the high grounds of the mysterious, everlasting sea, completes the, pros pect. It is situated off the high road, but near enough to the village to be easily accessible to the church, the school house, the post-office, the railroad, a social neighbor, or a trav eling friend. It consists in due pro portion of pasture and tillage, mead ow and woodland, field and garden. A substantial dwelling, with every thing for convenience and nothing for ambition, with the fitting appen dages of stable, and barn, and corn barn, and other farm buildings, not forgetting a spring-house with a liv ing fountain of water, occupies upon a gravelly knoll, a position well chosen to command the whole estate. A few acres on the front, and on the sides of the dwelling, set apart to gratify the eye with the choicer forms of rural beauty, are adorned with a stately avenue, with noble solitary trees, with graceful clumps, shady walks, a velvet lawn, a brook murmuring over a pebbly bed, here and there a grand rock, whose cool shadow at sunset streams across the field ; all displaying in the real love liness of nature, the original of those landscapes of which art in its per- ffection strives to give us the coun- ferfeit presentment. Animals of select breed, such as Paul Potter, and Morland, and Landseer, and Rosa Boaheur, never painted, roam the pastures, or fill the hurdles and the stalls , the plough walks in rustic majesty across the plain, and opens the genial bosom of the earth to the sun and air; nature's holy sacrament of seed time is solemnized beneath the vault ed cathedral sky ; .silent dews, and gentle showers, and kindly sunshine, shed their sweet influence on the teeming so!1. ; springing verdure clothes the plain ; golden wavelets, driven by the west wind, run. over the joyous wheat field ; the tall maize flaunts in her crispy leaves and nod ding tassels ; while we labor and while we rest, while we wake and while we sleep, God's cherr istry, which we cannot see, goes on be neath the clods ; myriads and myriads of vital cells ferment with elemental life ; gorm and stalk, and lea and flower, and silk and tassel, and grain and fruit, grow up from the co iraon earth ; the mowing machine and the reaper mute rivals of b tman industry, perform their gladsome task; the well-piled wagon brings home the ripened treasures of the year; the bow of promise fulfilled spans the foreground of the picture, and the gracious covenant is re deemed ; that while the earth re maineth, summer and winter, heat and cold, and day and night, and seed-time and harvest, shall not fail. Thut man has resolved to stay at home more of evenings, who upon reaching his house the other even ing, found his household locked up. After infinite trouble he managed to gain entrance through a back win dow, and then discovered on the par lor table, a note from his wife, read ing s "I have gone out ; you will And the door-key on one nide of the door-itep." .i aw i The Cuban revolutionists of New York are in great glee over th;; proc lamation of the republic in pain, and think it will lead to the oedv Space.
