MY WIFE'S COUSIN. ; Sme time ;i I called oo a eousin of j mjr wif , who resi'led in the city of Fliikt i dclphia. I had not seen him for a long tuuc but Laviiis under-tood tbat tie was in affluent circumstances, 1 was little pre pa ed for Hie state iu wii'ch I f .unJ him. rhroo;j! the Philadelphia Directory I went ti one of those dark alleys with which that city abounds, aud found his name on a sign board, associated with that of another man, over a dark, dingy shop. The sign purport 1 that hey were lock smiths and bellhangers, also that locks w re repain d and keys fifed. Without cere uony I walked into the gloomy reces, where there was a blacksmith's forge, and there, among arveral niuteuhir look ing meu, was my wife's cousin. lie received me most cordially, and for a moment interaitied Cling a huge biRs key on which he was engaged, and the snake of my own dexter by tne of big broad, brawny han Is, I eau liken to nothing nearer than the thock of a young earthquake. 'Taka a seat, tale a seat,' he observed, 'and just as ioon as I finish thi key, we'll muke tracks for home.' 1, of c urse, replied that I was in do hurry, and at once became interested in : the tacile manner in whicti be was metamorphosing a rough casting into a pulished key. Ai soon as it was com p e;ed, Le ws?h-d the worst of the dirt from bis hands, hung up his work apron, aud putting on his coat and hat, remarked iu a eht-eriul tone : . Come, now, t'ousin Aleck, 1st us go and see whether aiy wife has got any tea for us.' Alter wit were In the street, onr conver sation inseusibiy ran ou business, and I took the occasion to say to him that I had been of the opinion that he had retired from his trade ou a handsome competen cy. 'Don't say a word about retirement,' he replied, 'it nearly makes me sL-k tn think of it. People taik of retiring from business while they are healthy, and able to work; why, I tell you Aleck, they dou't know what it means ; I didu'l know j w uat it ineaut unui i inca u, out unw, re j tiieuwnt and misery sound to my cars j like words 1 if the tame meaning.' i'ere iving that he had struck a subj et I n which he cou d easily Le con.munica- j live, I looked inquiringly, when he re-' joitieil : 'Perhaps yen never heard the part;cu- lar.i of retiiiiis?' , On toy repi inj corded : tbat I had not, he pro- 'Yon see.

For two or thteo months, matters aud things weie getting on very well, because I had something to t ttend to in making a few improvements about the house, and furnishing a number of doors with locks of my own invention ; but as tbe whole piemisis were in good condition when I b"Utfht them, I soon c tme t a point where there was not anything to look al'er but the cultivation of the garden. I was not b'ng in making the di cove y tb t I had no g.nius or tasta either for d ,Tging around roots it pulling up weeds, and, as my wile didn t wi-lt the tmrden to run to wa-t'', I euiplnjed ,a ngu.ar English gar-din-r to carry the thing huudsomely through. 'Well, I didn't mind tbe expense he put me to in the way of grand, new- taugled garden t..o!s, and parent watering apparatus; lor I tully expected to spend money and. thanks to our previous economy, we had money to spend. But, Aleck, it was really amusing to see what in our girdeu cost us. Making use of the little arithniei- I was master of, I recollect that I ciphered up the cost i f some of the table fixings, and the result was : cucumbers, 17 ceuin apiece; green pr s, 51 bo lor a half peck; bee:, It c nts each, and ever thing else in piODoriim. All this I cared nothing ab' Ut, but .somehow I felt oat my gearing in not having the right kind of euiplnymeut. Wile did her best to coax me into gentlemanly ways; bad the dd mechanic's j.r me scrubbed out of mv hands; finpeiU 'ils cleaned and round ed, s i as to xppcar that I had never dune uijuiuI l.i bor. 'I hen we munt pet behind a couple of Morgan ionics whcb 1 bad purchased and make fashiuiiable calls in the daytime on those wlio bad called od u ; and my wife wanted me to soften dwn my voice, and to be particular about my g rammer, and the subjects 1 talked r l ; but for getting myself; I would revel ia tbe mem n y of the locks and keys I had handled iu my happier day.-, and com mence I a hi-tory of my exploits in that Hue, wh n my wife would look as though she was going to sibk thr.'Ugo the floor. In fact she w.mted to kc p a perpetual lock on my lip-, with tbe key in In r pock et. But 1 sighed for the shop, and time hung so heavily on mv hands that no hour sjicnt in idupid li-tltSMie-s about the house, st emed longer than it did wheal had ordeis ah ad lor b'cks, aud was di iv itig h.:rJ to get em fini-hed at a giveu time. My y-.ungest brother, who is a c llege-bred man and a lawyer, sent me, at my request, a fine collection on all imaginable suhjicts, so that my library outshone tbat i f any othpr person, er in deed that of any man in the pluce ; but I found I bad no more taste to Fit down and re d than I had for trimmiug currant bushes. Tbe time wns, after I had finished a hard day's work at the shop, when an hour at books was a real solace, aud I also belb ved an occasion of improvement. Then I envied those whose leisure allow ed them fo feast on books "perpetually ; but tbe mistake I' made was iu failing to discriminate between the mental habits and requirements of the professional stu dent and tbe werking man.

After thia, when I would sometimes ride past the ahop be hind my Morgan horses, the tears would start in my eves at being debanaJ from tba only emplyoment which was in the least d ipted to my taste or capacity. But Cousin Aleck, to shorten my story, wife Dtrceivini? that mv uuhaDDiness was increasing, at last consented to move back . . . to town, and let me resume my t.u.iness. I had no difficulty in renewiag my engage ment with my old partner, and hence you see me hard at work, aud happier than ; the President. I am perfectly able to live without work, but I have learned two : important truths ; first, that we never er 1 joy ourselves so wen as wnen useiuny employed : ani second, that there is m occupaii d, on the whole, for which we are so well fitted that to which we have lone been accustomed, and which has hence become to us, as it were, second uature.'

The author of "Waverley" temarks sntrn where in h.it work, that a feeble '.d indec'.sl.v haoi: of mind is produced by desultory nd omuiv rous trading. An Engl" h critic- denies this, and insis' that the author himself is a dbect contradiction to bi own ti.-.-or "on. The w i r also re fers ti Pliny, w:to, acord:n'i ' nephew, made a ra-ib'e observation on rc.-i-lini 1 i';it tbeie is no book m bad or so f-oli-h Moot to supply something worth re:iiemb ling. But tb. n hoiv few books were wit'iiu the re eh of I'liny, theuaci-,! Pope re id everything, and so did Warbur ton, fro;i the fathers of the church to the last pamphlet by old Dennis. Milt -n, we we told, spent his youth iu poring over romances, and poetry, remote as his subject- are from those which fi'l the pages of such compositions. It is thoroughly in stinct with their spirit ; even in bed, an astute rritin rem-isks, be finds a corner to bring in Charlemagne and all his peerage fighting in Fon'arabla, against the forces sent from Bis -rt-i upon AfVic'sshore. Iu tbe temptation of our Savior we are pre sented with African and Gallephi one. aud Angelica, the fair Nay, when disclaiming the themes of h i early favoiites as frivo lous, he does it iu their own language, and tells of' impresses quaint, bases and trappings, gorge us knight- at tilt and tournament, etc. Hobbes u?ed no say tbat be never read books "lest they should make me as foolish as those who do;" and yet the m m who translated Thney dides iu youth, aud Homer after be was eighty, tbe sturdy champion in a thou sand controversies, must have been a most various reader. After all, as a witty writer as well re markab t, little people like to lurk behiud great names to defend their own propen sities, by proving them in some decree analogous to the powerful mi .ds of the world. Whatever may have been the. habits of some great men, the remark in "Waverley" is founded in good sense. The idea is finely illustrated by the late Professor Bush, in an early oration, wherein he enforces with great e'earne-s and ability the evils of an unsettled mode of study, and even insists that the moral teudency of desultory radingw pernicious. This may be found in tbe inadequate aud unsatisfactory memoirs of tnat eminent scholar, published soon after bis death iu 1857. Early yesterday" morning the big guos in dsft tiseof Nashville, began to thunder; aud im nedia ely thereafter delegates from the Christian Commission, with satchels slung, could be seen wending their way to the scene of danger and ugi'fulnes. Tlieso go d Samaritan are uo respec era of per sons. They minister alike to the white and the oolored soldier, wounded in the service, or prostrated by disenso. In no other country has such a spectacle of dis interested benevolence been witnessed.' Kaibvil'ie UoioD, Deeembey 16. Desultory Reading. Select Poetry. BLESSINGS OF THE SNOW.

Down falls the snow, the pretty snow, Like flowers in heaven grown; Pale garlands for the old Year's brow, By angel fingers thrown. It decks the forest trees forlorn, Of all theii hummer beauty shorn ; And the beautiful snow, the heaven-born snow, Blooms on the stricken earth below. hown comes the snow, the love-like snew, Like answers to our prayers. God ur will send, if we but wait Ann C:iBt nn him nor e&rea And cast on him our eares.

Arriving at New York, old Anthracite told j the people at the dcp. , loud enough for the ! great Saratotra trunk to hear him, that he! would leave his baggage at the office for a few days, when he wonld send for it. Tnis was more than the great trunk could bear, so he kicked, shouted, and made a noise until it was broken open, and to the amazement of CTcrybcdy, poor Beliebub crawled out. in a limping condition. He tried to tell the peo ple that 'twas done for a bet, but somehow, the truth leaked out, and I predict that there will be fewer great Saratoga trunks at tbe Springs next summer. I think old Anthra cite got the best of it, don't you? If Govern er Wise, of Virginia, who approved John Brown's death sentence could now enter the porlor of his old family mansion on the east branch of the Elizabath river, about eight miles south of Norfolk, he would see there a photograph, handsomely wreathed in laurel, of tbe man whoes soul is mar ching on. Wise's farm has been confis cated by the government, and several schools for contrabands arc located upon it, and teachers occupying the house as a residence, occupying the house as a residence, and making this appropriate deocoration in the parlor. The officers who confiscated the place found in the house, among numerous other papors, plans of secession drawn up by Wise in 1857, and approved by Jeff. Davis and several other promi nent men in the south. 1 1 i ; I ! -to Child Training.

Next get some common flour, remove from the water, and cover the burned pirts with an inch thickness of flour; if possible, put the patient to bed, and do all that is possible le soothe until the physician arrives. Let the flour remain until it falls off itself, when a beautiful new skin will be found. Unless the burns are deep, no other application is need ed. The dry flour for burns is the most admi rable remedy ever proposed, and the informa tion ought to be imparled to all. The princi ple of its action is that, like the water, it causes instant and perfect relief from pain, by totally excluding the air from the injured parts. Spanish whiting and cold water, of a mushy consistency, is preferred by some. Dredge on the flour nntil no more will slick, and cover with cotton batting. Links of a Chain.

Theehant went forth into the world, and entered the house of sorrow, and uttered its heart-stirring accents by tbe couch of sickness. The sorrow ful were comforted, the sick were cheered. Many voices praised the poet. He said : "The chant was inspired by the robin's song." 'I should have sunk in the earth had not the acorn-eup received me.", said the rain drop. "I bad not been there tc receive you, bat for the angry blast," said the acorn-cup. And so they that were comforted praised tbe blast; but the blast replied, "Praise Him at whose command the stormy wind arisetb, and who from darkness can bring light, ma king his mercies oftentimes to pass through unseen, unknown, and unsuspected channels, and briefing in due time, by his cwn way, the grateful chant from the angry storm cloud !''
