Come forth, come (orlli! it were a sii
To stay lit lininn to-day !
Stay no more, loitering within,
Coino to the woods awoj )
The lonir zretn erne in filled with flowers,
The clover's deep, dim red
Is brightened with the morning showers
That on the winds hnve (led.
Scattered nhont the deep-blue ky.
Ill white and flying clouds,
Some bright, brief Tains nr nil thfit lie
Withiu those snowy shrouds.
Now, look! our weather-sins is sproid
The pimpernel, whose flower
Clones its le.vr of spotted red
Against a rainy hour.
Tl'e first pale green Is on thu trees
Tlmt verdure more like bloom;
Yon elm-bough hiith a hordo of bocs,
Lured by the fair.t perfume.
Tlie eherry-orchard flinjrs on high
Its branches, whence lire strown
Blossoms like snow, but with ou eye,
Dark, inuidcn, as thine own!
As yet our flowers are chiefly those
Which fill tho sun-touched bough;
Within the sleeping "oil repose
Those of the radiant brow.
But w lav daisies, which, like l"Te
Or hope, spring everywhere;
And primroses, which droop ubore
Some Bolf-consuining care.
So sad, so spiritual, so pale,
Born all too near the snow,
They pine for that.swent southern gale
Which they will novor know.
It Is too soon for d"eper shade;
But let us skirt the wood,
The'bluckbird there, "whose nest is made,
Sits singing to her brood.
These pleasant hours will soon bo flown;
Love, make no mere delay
I am too glad to he alone,
Come forth with it:o to-day.
At a proyor-meeting held in riymoulli
Church, Brooklyn, the pastor, I!ev. Henry
Ward Beecher, in view of the "unjust judges"
of the Supreme Court of tho United States
read the following pertinent hymn, by Dr.
Judges, who rule lh world by laws,
Will ye despise the. righteous cause.,
When the oppressed before you stands?
Dare ye condemn the righteous poor,
And let rich sinners go secure,
- ' Whilegold aud greatness bribe your hands?
Have ye forgot or never knew.
That God will judge the judge too?
High in the heavens His justice reigns.
Yet yon invade the, rights of (Jod,
And send vour bold decrees abroad,
To bind the conscience in your chains!
Til Aliniglity thundors in the sky
Their grandeur melts, their lilies die
They perish like dissolving I'rosl ;
Asempty chafT, when whirlwinds rise,
Before the sweeping tempest flies,
So shall their hopes and names bo lost.
Thus ahull the vengeance nf the Lord

Anil nil that hear shall join and say
"Sure there's a 'jod that rules on high
A God thnt hears His children cry,
And will their Bufferings wi ll repay,"

Watering Places.
The New York Herald says: People
are beginning to find out that fashion
able watering places are great humbugs.
They aro frequented almost exclusively
by u set of inrv iittes, whose sole business
it Bcems to be to Uiess in loiulcht style,
make offensive remarks about each other,
and generally to practice envy, hatred,
inuliee, and pleasant people avoid those
places, und go to somo quiet retreat,
where they can get something lit to eat,
and enjoy a vacation in a rational man
lier. Wo shall find this year the artist;!,
authors, and literary and professional
men, with u strong npico of the business
community, comf.i ti.hly nnd quietly lo
cated by tlie sea or inouiifaiu bido, while
tho so called fashionable resorts w ill be

Oh! I'm a poor unlucky wight
As ever there was born, sir,
There's nothing in my house that's right,
Tis lonely and forlorn, sir.
I've rush enough ami pay it wall

Hut ne'er can gel n decent meal,

'Tis overdune or underdone,
Perhaps not done nt nil , sir;
No man hail ever such a home
In all this weary world, sir.
My coat is at tho elbows net,
I ne'er can get it mended;
My sh;rls are seorch'd in ironing,
my vest to ribbons rendeil.
My stockings down unto the ground,
I ne'er caji keen n carter:
And if they e'er get washed nt nil

There's nothing done Hint should bo dons,
And If it's done at all, sir,
It better never had been done,
Thau done so very III, sir.
Go, get wife, the old man said;
Nor sit ve here complaining;
Of wedlock never be afraid,
A prudent wile's the main thin;

And chat and sing tlie while, sir;
And when, nt eve, you hasten home,
She'll meet you with a smile, sir;
And all Hint's done will bn well done
And done without complaining;
If s'or you'd hnve u pleasant home,
A wife, a wife's tho main thing.
Jack quickly took the snge ndWeo

And never did he run the day
When home, a biide, he brought her.

turpentine is rocommended. Alum and rosin
are used to preserve bookbinders' paste, but
Ineffectually; oil of turpentine succeeds better;
but, by small quantities of oil of peppermint,
anise, or cassia, paste has been preserved fur
several year. Dr. Maccullnch recommends
lbs addition to lint tlonr and water of some
brown sugar, and corrosive sublimate, the
ugar keeping It flexible when dry, nnd the
sublimate prevenling it from formeni ing,
and from being attacked by Insects. A few
drops of any of tlie essential oils may bi ad
ded to the puste when it is made. It dries when
exposed to the air, and may be used merely by
welling it. Heeds may also be preserved by
the essential oils ; and this is of great conse

get the loan of a brush, and vurnish the fur

Corns. Tl.o best cure for thesn trouble

so that the corn becomes soli, then trim it oil'

the tincture of the Arbor Vine, placed upon

Self Instruction.
Among the several ways which have bucn
presented for the cultivation of the mind, there
is one which, though ull others may fail, is
sure to secure genuino instruction to tlioso
who are perivor' ng enough to uujorlu'.ie the
task of instructing themselves by their own
persevering lubor, and bringing their minds
to u high blandard of knowledge, casting uside
the erroneous opinion that it is necessary that
we liavo uccesa to the halls of learning, pre
punitory to becoming tdueat.-d, useful mem
bers of society. How m iuy have reached the
topmost round of Hie ladder of learning, who
never occupied a Real in college. flow did
they obtain their knowledge, Hy persever
ingly applying their mental 'power, and resist
ing ull opposition, by their own labor. Wher
ever we find men filling high places in tho
world, we find men who have depended chiellv
on self-instruction who, having been deprived
of the advantage of an instructor, having re
lied on their own exertions and lliere found
a faithful teacher. That s'uiio instructor is
given to every one, but how many there are
who not having the means of b In fashiona
bly educated, have lived a life of ignorance!

in speaking to ine. I'ut I guess I was
more to blame than he, for I said a good

my (tongue had been cut off before they
left my lips, but, somehow, my temper
got the better of me, and he went ofT
without Hpeakine; i,c kind Wold, or

Here there was another outbreak of
"He won't be home till night, and
how shall I ever get through this
long, dreary, dismal day, knowing all

who has been such a true, generous,
loving husband? How I wish I

forgetting all my pride, wind my arms
about his neek and saw 'Hal. I'm
real sorry; won't you forgive mo this

The pretty lady sprang tip from the
table, a new determination lieightening
tho faint rolor in her cheeks, anil
bringing back tho sparkle to her blue
"I will take the omnibus and go richt

The young merchant T-as leaning
with a weary, half-dejected fort of ex
pression, over his desk, about which
were scattered bills, letters, ete.in almost
endless confusion. Something had
gone wrong. His clerks knew this
when he came into the store that morn
ing, so gloomy and reticent, so thor
oughly unlike his usual brisk, energetic
jovial manner, that carried sunshine in
to the dark ware-rooms. Kven the por
ter felt something of this, for ho stood
at a respectful distance from his employ
er, and didn't indulge in any of his
old and stale jokes.
Suddenly tho merchant looked up.
and saw his wife making her way
through the store, .straight to his desk.
How pretty sho lookod that morning,
in the little tasteful hat, with its crim
son trimmings about her cheeks, that
were so charmingly bceoniiiig. and thnt
hall-smile dimpling the rosy, small
mouth, that ho could hardly believe had
.-aid sui h very unkind things to him only
a few hours before.
Now Harry Leeds was very proud of
Lis wife, and of tho evident admiralion
which her occasional advent nt the store
always excited. He immediately rose
up to met her, the surprise in his
face half chasing the clouds therefrom.
Hie came close to him.
'Harry," whispered the soft, eager,
timid voice, ''I'm so Very sorry I said
those cross things to you this 'morning.
I was greatly to blame, and they've
made mo unhappy ever since, so I have
come down hero to make up, and hear
you say once more that you love me!"
The cloud was all gone. There was
a world of fond tenderness in that
glance that looked down from those
dark eyes on the lady.
"Why, bless you, 'Adelaide! you have
not come clear off here for that? I
was more to blame than you, a great
deal, but some business matters were
troubling ine, and then I am a very
touchy fellow, I guess, anyhow."
''No, you're not; I felt all the time
that, you wero displeased with me,
but you do love mo just as well as
That smile, that glance, would have
satisfied any wife.
'She's a jewi 1, anyhow," murmured
Harry Leeds to himself, after she had
lelt, as he arranged his disordered desk,
with a face as changed and bright as the
sky outside, for tho sun had suddenly
plunged through the clouds.

Death of Lord Douglas-The Great
Lawsuit of the 18th Century.
GLASGOW, April 6, 1857.
Jamen Douglas, 1 '.a roll Douglas, died
at his scat, liothwell Castle on the
Clyde, this morning. The dceased
peer has been in indillerent health for
a lengthened period, but llie illness
which carried him oil' was only of two
or three days duration. He was lioru
iu '177, and succeeded to the title
and estates on the death of bis brother
in September. ls'H. He married in

ter, Lady Llizabeth, married iu 1S:!2 to
the harlot Home. J his lady is the
mother of a large family, the "eldest of
whom is Lord Douglas.
Tho deceased peer was the son of the
first Jhiron Douglas, in whoso name
"The Crcnt Douglas Cause" the mo.-t
important legal cause of the last century
was carried on. Iu connection with
the death of the last male heir, it may
not ho out of phce to give u brief sketch
of this celebrated case. The Duke of
Douglas died childless in 17il, when
the title became extinct, but the real
and personal estate was churned by his
nephew. .Mr. Archibald Stewart, wh i
was served nearest heir to the Duke in
the same year. The assumption of the
(stales led to this memorable law-suit.
Lady .Jane Douglas. sUter to tlie last
Duke already mentioned, was one of the
handsomest women of her time, and in
August, 17 Hi, being then -Isi years of
aire, she was secretly married to Mr.
Stewart, afterward Sir dohn Stewart, of
(Jralidfiilly. They resided abroad, prin
cipally in Prance, frmii 17IG till the
end of December, 17 P. At the latter
date they returned to this country and
took uji their residence iu London,
bringing with them two male children,
of whom they gae out that Lady June
had been delivered iu Paris at a twin
birth in July, 174s.
The youngest of the twins, who was
named Sholtc Thomas Stewart, died in
May, 17"io, and iu November of the
same year. Lady Jane died at Edin
burgh. Immediately after tho Duke's
death the guar Hans of the surviving
youth proceeded to put him in posses
sion of the estates of the Douglas fami
ly. He was served heir to tlie Duke be
fore a jury after the examination of a
'.Teat body of evidence, the examination
or inquest having been at-tcuded by
council on the part of the Duke of
Hamilton, who claimed the Douglas es
tate as male heir. The guardians of the
I'uke of Hamilton were not convinced.'
however, of the legitimacy of Stewart,
or Douglas, and with a view of clearing
up the case they sent agents to the con
tinent, v ho brought back a great body
of evidence to prove that the pretended
delivery of Lady Jane was a fiction, and
that the twins really belonged to two
poor families in Prance, named respect
ively Mignion and Saury. The guard
ians of Mr. Stewart, on the other baud.
brought forward persons to swear that
they had seen Lady Jane in n state of
pregnancy, and that they were actually
present at the birth of these twins.
After evidence had been collected pro
and con from every quarter, and most
minutely sifted and criticised, the case
came on for judgment in the Court of
Session in Scotland on the 7th of July,
1 7G j , and so important was the cause
deemed that the fifteen Judges took
eight days to deliver their opinions.
The result was that seven of the Judges
voted in favor of the identity or legiti
macy of Mr. Stewart, and seven against

taken to the House of Lords, however
by which tho judgment of the Court of
Session was reversed in ldi'.l, and Ar
chibald Stewart, or D.ni'jl.is, declared to
be the undoubted son of Lady Jane
ine sisler ot the fate I'uke. He now
retained undisputed possession of the
estates. Archibald Douglas was ere a
