Oh ! there is a dream of maturer years, :
More turbulent by far; ;

C' And. the theme of that dream is wak:
And we toil in the field of danger and death,
' ' And about in the battle array,".. V.. ,--:

And we fondly trust in our glittering dust, ,
.Asa refuge from grief and pain,
TiU our limbs are laid on that last damp bed,
"', Where the wealth of the world is vain.
And is it thus from man's birth to his grave,
In the path which all are treading)
Is there nought in that long career to save
: From remorse and self-upbraiding J
Oh, yes! there's a dream so pure, so bright, i

Hath batied in a sea of living light '

A SCENE ON THE PONT NEUF.' -
If the French, do not follow, in all res
pects, the precepts of the gospel, at least it
must be confessed that they pay due Teg-trd
to the apostle'd injunction. Weep with those
that weep, aud rejoice with these that re
joice." I have seen a thousand instances of
this disposition; but I do not know that!
ever witnessed one with more pleasure than
the one which I am about to relite. ' '
j 1 Was crossing the Pont Neuf at the mo
ment when a porter, belonging to the Biftk
r j .1.. ...:..u. u i :.
vt x itiuuc, mcu til uiu wcigiu iiu ujiiiuu yt
was a bng containing nine thousand francs
in silver), stopped to rest himself by loaning
against the parapet wall of a bridge; but, ni
the moment that ho did so, his valutible bad,
either from awkwardness or carelessness,
slipped out of his hands, and fell into the
Seine, which is very deep in thai spot. ' '
Never shall I forget that look of despair.
He made a movement to jump over, and, I
believe, would have eh?cted his purpose,
but for the presence of mind of a girl, a lit
tle, delicate-looking thing, about sixteen, n
violet seller, who clasping her arms around
- liim, cried fur help, which was instantly af
forded. Myself, and ' some others : seized
him: he struggled with .us desperately.
'Let me go!" erred he; " 1. nm.r ruined fur-
ever! My will), my children, what will bu
come of you?" A multi'lide of voices were
raised at once, some to console, others to in
quire; but above the rest wero heard the
clear and silver tones ol the little violet
girl " My friend, have patience, you have
lost nothing." - -
. " Nothing! Oh, heavens!" . ,
; ?No, no; I tell you, no. Let some one
run for the divers: there is no doubt that
they will siicceed in bringing it up,"
n She is right," resounded from a number
of voices, and from mine among the rest;
and in an instant half a dozen people ran to
fetch the divers. .Those who remained ex
erted themselves, each in hi way, for the
solace of the poor porter.- . One brought him
a small glass of liqueur another a utile bran
dy, and a third sorn? can de Cologne. ' The
little violet Ctrl had been lie t tire all the rest
in administering a cordial, and perhaps hers
was the most emcatious, a glass of pure
water, which she held to .his .trembling lips,
and made him swallow. . " Drink," cried she
"drink it up; it will do you good." ; Whe
ther it was the water, or the 'kind and sym
pathetic manner iu which it was offered, that
relieved him, I know not;' but certainly one
of the two had its effect, for his looks grew
less w Id and he became composed enough
to make his acknowledgement, to the hu
mane spectators, who had shown so much in
terest iu his misfortune. - 1
- .' The divers soon came; and one of them
descended without loss of time. Never did
I witness such an intense anxiety as the
search excited; if the fate of every one pre
sent had hung on the. success, they could noi
have testified greater interest in it. Soon
le reappeared, bringing up, not a bag of sil
ver, but a small iron bnx. . It was instantly
broken open, and found to be full of twen
ty franc pieces in gold; they wore soon
counted, and found to amount to about
twelve thousand francs, (nearly four hundred
snd fifiy pounds sterling.) -- - -.
' There wero three divers, who, overjoyed
at their good fori tine, speedily divided the
'price, among themselves: and directly anoth
er descended in search of the porter's bag.
This time he returned in triumph. The
nnor fellow could hardly speak when it was
nlaced in his hands... On coming to himself
he cried with vehemence," uou reward you:
vou know not the good you hare dono, I
am the father of five Children. 1,1 was form
erly in good circumstances; but a series of
misfortunes reduced me to- the greatest dis
tress. ' All that I had left was an irreproach
able character, which procured me my pre
sont situation. I have had it but one week.
To-day I should, but for your help, have jost
t. . Mv wife, my children would have oeen
exposed to all the horrors , of want:, they
would have been deprived of a husband and
a father; fof never, no, never, could I have
survived the ruin I .had brought upon them!
It is you who have saved us all. God will re
ward you He alone can," . While ho thus
spoke, he rummaged his pockets, and drew
out some francs, k " This is all I have, 'tis
very little, but tell ma where you live,, aijd
to-morrow 'V " Not one , sous,'? interrupted
they with one voice, and ouo ot'them added,
" Stop a bit: let me talK to my comrades.'
Thev stepped one side for a moment;.! fol
lowed them with my eyes, and saw, by their
cestures. that thev listened to their coinpin
ion with emotion,. , " We are all of a mind,"
said he,' returning with. them. ,. " Yes, my
friend, if we have beeu serviceable to you.
you also have beeu die. causa, of pur good
fortune: it seems to mo, that wo ought, to
share with you what God has sent us through
your means.. My companions think so too;
and we are going to divide it into four equal
parts." A .
The porter would have remonstrated, but
his vo'co wag drowned by the acclamations
of the spectators. "Generous fellows!"
" Much good may it do you!" "The simo
luck to you many more times!" resounded
from every mouth. There w is not one pre
sent but seemod as happy as if he or she
were about to participate in tho contents of
the box
.The money was divided, and, in spite of
his excuses, the p'irler was torceu to take
his share.;, The generous divers went their
way; the crowd began to disperse; but 111;
porter still lingered, and I had the curiosity
to watch his motions. . lie approached the
Hula-violet girl. "Ah! my d jar," cried he,
What do I not owe you! " But for you, it
had been all lost with nix My wife, tny lit
tle ones must thank you." " , ,, ' ,
" Met foil it is not worth mentioning.'
You would not have mo stand by aud sjc you
drown voursell?" '. ' .
" But your courage, your strength! could
ono have expected it fioin so young a girl?"
" Ah! there is no want of strength where
there is good will." .
" And nobody ever had moro of that.
Give mi six of your bo .uats, my djir; my
children aro so fond of violets and never
have thoy prized any as thev will thosJ,"
She twisted a bit of thread round six of
her ftiry nosegays, anJ prosented them to
him. He deposited them carefully in Ins
bosom, and slipped something into her hand:
then, without wait'ug to hear the acknowl
edgements wl.i.h she began to pour forth, took
to his heels as if his bag had beeu madu of
feathers. . .. . .. ' .' ' '
The girl looked after him with pleasure
dancing in her eyes. " Wa it will you take
lor the rest ot your nosegays ' sua 1, going
up to her. " Whatever you ore plaasjd to
give," cried she with vivacity; " for that
good : man's money will burn my purse till
I get home and give it to my rnoihar. O
how glad will she be to have all ' that, and
still more when she knows why it has been
given to me!" The reador will easily be
lieve my purchase -was easily made: the
good girl's purse was something tho heavier
fur it, and I had the pleasure of thinking
that I had contributed in a small degree, to
reward the goodness of heart she has so un
equivocally displayed. She hastened liomfl
with her treasure, and I returned to my lodg
ings to put my violets in water,- promising
myself, as I did so, to be a frjquent cus
tomer to the little nosegay girl of the Pont
Neuf. London Repository of Arts. )

always have a slip of paper put undor them,
at and over the edge of every stair, which is
the part where they first wear out, in order
to lesson the friction of tho carpets against
tho boards beneath. The strips should ba
within an inch or two as long as the carpet
is wide, and about four or live inches . in
breadth, so us to lie a distance from each
stair.' This simple plan, so easy of execu
tion, will, wo kuow, preserve a stair carp3t
half as long agaiu as it . would last without
the strips of paper, -j. ,

- LITERARY NOTICEa.
The rarnicrs' Library. '
More than half tno first number of Tn
FAItMEIls' LlBHIiARY AND MoNTIILV JotJRNAt
op AoiticuLTURB is nlrendy stereotyped, and
the reiiiniiiiiijj will rnpidly follow. We bare
ly hope, however, to issue the work promp
uy on lite isi oi juiy, ns some oi me iiius
tiations require more time thnn we had es
timated, and cannot ho hurried. A fine Por
truit on Sieclof the lute Hon. Stephen Van
RknsjeLaeu will fuce the title-page, while
nn oi initial Memoir of thnt illustrious man,
will) cspcciul refuicnco to his lubors in and
services to the ctiuse of American Agricul'
turc nnd that of Popular Education, will open
the Journal of Agriculturci We design thiol
us tho commencement of a series of portraits
:iml biographical sketches of early and emi
nent champions of Agricultural Improvement,
particularly but not exclusively those of our
own co intrv. It is high tima that the fains
iiid honors hilherto monopolized by Warriors,
Politicians and Statesmen be bestowed in at
lunst equal nuasure on thosa noiseless bene-
factors of our race whose tearless triumphs
aro won in the domain of rugged Nature, and
of which " tho spoils" are enjoyed by the
wholo I In in n n Family.
The Fanners' L'brary will open with Petz
iioldt's Aciiicultural CiiEMisTKY,origimlly
pulilisiied in London last year, and now first
primed in this country. This work is less
profound aud dazzling than tl o jusily cele
brated treatise of Prof. Liemo on the same
subject, but it is far simpler, less abstruse,
and moro readily understood by those who
have little or no prior acquaintance with the
science of Chemistry. It will be completed
' . I . C . L T :i T..I..
in iwo niimuuis oi wie uiurury .miy "u
August.) and nriy be bound up by itself if
any desire it. It will be found complete,
conc'so, lucid and a s'gnal help to every
practical farmer. We i have, on in tturo con
sideration, decided io open with this rather
than " Stephens's Book of the Farm' an ex
cellent work, but very voluminous, and requir
ing expensive and continual alterations to
adapt it to the wants of Farmers in this coun
try. Petzlioldt's Chemistry will cover less
than 100 pages of the Library.
Among the contenis of the Monthly Jour
nal, will bo found a full and clear account of
l lie application of Electricity to Agriculture
in England, its cost nnd its wonderful results
Also, of the application of Guano the most
approved methods and tho effect, &c. &c
This will be by far the largest, and we hope
the best Agricultural work ever published in
ill's country. The Editor, Mr. J. S. Skimnf.ii,
devotes himsolf unremittingly and joyously
lo his duties, and is determined to show that
tlie projector and conductor of tho first Far
mer's periodic il ever printed in this coutitry
has not fallen behind the times.
. VVo do not expect many lo pay for such a
work as the Farmers1 Library till they havo
seen nnd approved il; we do not expect to
receive immediately any adequate return for
our heavy otnlay iu this enterprise; but wa
are grateful for every intimation of sympa
ihy with and good will to this publication.
Subscriptions' nnd suggestions will be grate
fully received by
