"Oh, dear, there s so many to wash!" and little Sally Nash survey ed, with a rueful glance, the looe table full of dishes. Two scare ago, hef mother had died. Mrs. Nash was a tender, gen tle woman, living only in the hap. fiiness of her beloved ones, and she tad made the first years of her lit tle daughter's life very bright. When she died the bitterest pang warn in the thought of leaving this, her only child, to the tender mercies of a world whioh is no ways dispos ed to be merciful. When the death agony was upon her, she called the little one to her bedside and kissed her long and feivently; brushing b ck her thick curls with her pale Land and looking into her eyes with a steadfast gaze of hopeless love and sorrc w. Oh," she faltered, "I can give up everything else, but I wish i could take you with me. I cannot bear to leave you in this fold world motherless, my child, my child. Dutter for you if you could go to eleep here on my "bosom and never wake np again. I wiah we could bo buried together." Deacon Nash was a kind-hearted man. 1 1 is sympathies were quick rather than deep, l'orhaps this wasjthe he bad never understood the woinanlgrave who Ibr then years hud slept in bosom, llcr nature was very dil - fernut. Her feelings lay deep buried in her woman's heart. Sometimes, like diamonds in the winding ways ot a gloomy mine, they would Hash out lor a moment, giving the behol tier a sudden, startling glimpse ol richness hidden within. Her love wis like the conrse of a subter ranean stream, which you could only trace by the sweeter Iragrance of the ... a flowers; tho richer verdure of the, grass abovo it. Her husband saw thines from a . I. l.r.n ln.Amni.l,.. wyiua ..uui ...... . .vy...K...v.. aible. He had been sitting at dying wife's bedside, his face bowed npou his hands, and the tears trick-her ling through his fingcra, but he rais d his bead now. 'I don't like to hear you say that, Sarah. If you must die, it isn't right to wish the child dead too. I wn. something left for mo.

No one ever saw bar weep; and aorae persons, even, remarked that it was strange the child didn't seem to care Fiore about her mother.. But there wera others, !irewderJobserveri",who noticed that for months afterward a smile never crossed her lace: that she scarcely tasted : food, and grew to thin and pale,tme mtghrnrmost have thought that her dead mother's last kisses had drawn half tbe life from her childish veins. . For awhile, the good deacon did indeed seem absorbed in his child and his grief, bnt a time passed on. bia wife's words came true ho was comforted. He needed a housekeeper sadly. The sister, who hai come to him when hia wife first died, lould re main no longer. He tunst procure soma one to tako her place. It was with thia view he first called npou the Widow Bennett. But she was not willing, she told him, to leave ber own home in the capacity of a fcooakeeper, and it all ended in bis asking her to come in that of a wifo, and bring her own three children arith her. She was a dominant, artful, some ejlAhard wotuen; very different from the first Mrs. Maab. Little Sally's life, nnder thia new rule, aeemed m3re weary and doaolate than ever, though ao long as her father lived, she waa secure irom noaitityej ill-treatment. There .were tjofWrntrtne those who whispered that Adam Bonnett'a buxom widow did not make the deaooo'e life a wary hanDv one. Ha certainly did aeera tq grow old very last. Be that as it might, he was nnder hia wife's full control, and the had not been long married before he had made hia will, bequeathing to ber tha use of all bia property, during her life.

Miscellaneous. The Moon's Influence. oad'wero wet and windy. The Society published this; and we expressed our;0? , that it is widely believed in among , aearaen, English, French, Spanish, curious circumstance: tno wnoie 'world has the notion widely scattered that a Saturday moon brings wet weather, and science has hardly the means ot being positive in the ncg- ative. And this is only ono such case; curious effects of tho moon are 'in the popular belief by scores, and, ithera is no refutation.except apriori !that is, no refutation at all" ' p..-r dva i di vi.i.,,1 intn two Ihe London Athenaeum says: belief in the lunar influence t of all countries and of all tiinos. It extends beyond the beliof in month climbing ly periods. We will recall a circum the stance connected with our own col cheerful jurans as far bock as 1949. Our readers will remember, that in December, 1843, Dr. Forestor, of Brocs.annoonced to the Astronom grouped ical Society ,tthat in weather journals kept by his grandfather, his father, , I the earth is certain. What then bo- uo'comc3 of all the heat which it seems almost certain the moonlight brings ' with itl Sir John Ilerachel thinks1 that it is absorbed in the uoperre- ''gions of our atmosphere; and that some probability is give i to this sup- position by tho tendency to d:sap-lpln poarence of clouds nnder the full moon; a fact observed by himself ! without knowledge ofits having been noticed by any one else, and which : tha rtflt A, half In n tl.

Our correspondent, soon let us know! that tbo Saturday moon had character even in popular rh vines, and even Chinese. We referred the . question to the Sttnrday new moon of March.1849. which was then coin- ing on.and this moon rather favored the theory; for after dry weather little snow lull on the Saturdav. and 'the few following days were lower-ior ina anj rurliur ict N',M horn ia a I .... .. - : - -j t - - - ,,er.ois,one ot which nas.nany times a .mi.-li mnon .r it aa tha ol icr.-, That tho moonlight must have a great deal of heat when it leaves the m-inn ia li'wriltf nrnhnViI- thiit. it hfia nono when it reaches tho surface of, Humboldt, ha attorwards found, .1, i.,t..!l. speaas oi as wen Known iu me puots and seamen of Spanish America. If this theory be correct, there is a' cause of weather cycles which must' produce tomt effect; an enormous 'quantity af beat poured into tho at- raoapnertjaunng ono nan oi mo lunar month, and a very imall quantityl In truth, it; uus nit tuw vtuvi ueiii, hai been ascertained that tho oiiali. tin nftha tat irhinli fall in th tnnr - - - quarters of tho moon are not quito tho same in the long run. Hut tbe popular mind gets hold of the question in a different way. It soizes npon tho geometrical phouom cna of the moon, notbiugness, half ness, fullness, and makes the mo ments of the.-e appearences the times at or very near which change of . . . . . . . . weather is to take place. According to tbe recognized old notions, it is enongh if a change of weather takes place within three days every month in which a change is set down to the moon. No wonder this theory is of ten confirmed. Tbe whole question of moonlight not position of the moon both as to its effects on the weather and its asserted effects on vegetable and animal life, is in the earliest infancy, to far as systematic observation it concerned.

We learn that two colored boys, some eighteen or twenty years of age who had escaped irora their master, a Mr. Jewet, ot Tennssee,' were tak en at Cleveland on Monday, where they had huen quietly at work in a hole! for sometime, and delivered to their master by process of Court. On their way to Cincinnati, to be shipped by the river to their former home, one of them got off the cars at Carlisle Station, near Dayton, and wlin the train was ready to start, he refused to get on again. lbo person having the boys in charge endeavored to force him upon tue i)UMVvn. hut the fiifiti ve.tnrnid up on him, struck one or two KluJi for the country The cars could not be stopped for one negro, and tho owner of the slave, was obliged to come on to Middletown with his remaining charge, where he procured assistance and returnd to CurliuLi yesterday af ternoon, in pursuit of the fugitive. The other boy was brought on to this city last evening, and is probably already beyond the reach of any oth er than slave law. The escapo tf the hoy at Carlisle, we understand, created quite an ex citement on tho cars, and served to greatly relievo tho monotony of a fa tiguing trip. The chaio was rather animated for a minute or two. If tho master followed the runaway, be stood the risk of losing his property! remaining in mo cars; so no wiseiy concluded to secure the bird in hand, and then beat the bush for its mate.

A piece ofcpongc - Nathing contributes more to the elegjuica and refinement of a lady's apptareuoe, than a beautiful hand. A well-formed hand, white And toft, witi Japerinjf, rosy-tinted finger, and polished nails is a rare gift; but wbire nature has denied symmetry of brm and outline, It Is easy, by wooer care and attention, to obtain a delicacy of color and a grace of moveaieut which will place It suffi ciently near the standard of beauty to render it attractive. Gloves should be worn at every opportunity, and these should invariably be of kid or soft leather. Silk gloves or mittens,, altlfopgh a pretty contrivance, are from the unctious substances with which they are prepared, to make the hands white and soil, but they are attended with inconvenience, be. sides being very unwholesome. A moderatelv warm bran poultice, laid upon the hands alout once during a weak, is a very excellent application. It must be remembered that tho col or of the skin of the hands, in com mon with that of tho whole body, is dependent, in a great measure, on tho general state of the health. Tho hands should be wushed in tepll wa ter, as cold hardens them, and pre disposes to roughness and chaps, while water, beyond a certain heat, makes them shriveled and wrinkled. In drying thera.they ought to bo well rubbed with a moderately coarso towel, as friction always promotes a soft and polished surface. Stains from ink or other causes, should bo immediately removed with salt and lemon juice a bottle of this mixture should stand ready for use on every toilet.

'And what then?" inquired tho de fendant of the jnde. 'I shall issue an 'elocution,' if tho plaintiff desires,' returned his honor.

To Manage a Rearing Horse. Whenever you perceive a horse's inclination to rear,, aeparate yonr reins and prepare for him. The in stant he ia about to rise, slacken one hand.and bend or twist his head with the other, keeping your bands low. This bending compels him to move a hind leg, and of necessity brings his fore feet down. Instantly twist him round two or three times, which will confnsi him very much, and completely throws him off his guard. The moment yon have finished twist ing him round, place his hond in the direction you wish to proceed, apply the spurs, and he will not fail to go forward. If the situation bo conven ient, press him into a zallop.acd ap ply the spurs and whip two or three timet severely. The horso will not, perhaps, be quite satisfied with the, first defeat, but may feel disposed to try again for tho mastery. Should this bo the case, you have only to twist him, Ac, as beforo.and yoj will find that in the second struggle he will be more easily subdued than on the former occasion; in fact, you will see bun qnail nnder tbo operation It rarely happens that a rearing horse after having been treated in the way described, will resort to this trick a third time.
