In youth exalted up in air, And bathing in the waters fair, i. Nature to fufm me look delight, And clad my body all in white, a My person tall with slender waist And on each side with fringes graced; Thus dressed, when I the man espied, 1 That plucked mo from my mother's side. No wonder now I look so thin, t The tyrant stript me to tho skin, My skin he fleeced, my hair he cropt; , At head and foot my body topt, j To vex me more lie took a freak, And split my tongue to make mo speak, And what's wonderful in me appears, I speak to eyes and not to oars, , Without my aid, the best Divine In wisdom could never, never shine; i The Lawyer would forget his pleading, The Scholar would not know his reading. I Ah! man my master is my slave, I give command to kill and save, I die unpiticd and forgot, i And on 6omc waste place left to rot. | NESTOR. Miscellaneous. ;l " . . ' | The Fortunate Brothers.?" An extraordinary rencontre, worthy," says the Journal ddl Arrondisscmcnt du Havre, which relates it, " of Jiguring in the Arabian Nights Talcs, has just occurred at an hotel in Havre. Amongst the travellers who had arrived on the same day, and who were dining at the table dc'holc, were three who were relating to each other their adventures. One had arrived, after an absence of twenty years, from the United States, where ho had been to improve his fortune, and had succeeded. Another, who left France at the same time, had gone to Egypt and entered into the military service of the Pacha, who had rewarded him with fortune and honors; and the -i i i J i / ? . ... nA j lllirci Iina DCCII lur iwuiii^ yvara tuiauncu j to various voyages of discovery as an ari fist, and now returned with a competence ! and a pension from the State. These 'three persons are brothers, and were I born at Iloucn in the same house. At the death of their parents thev set out on the same day, and, by a singular coincidence, they returned on the same day after an absence of twenty years, during which they had never heard of each other!" A Domestic Frog.?In Siliman's Journal, there is an account of a frog in a perfect state of domestication, in the possession of Dr.4 William Rools, of Kingston. It appears lhat the lower offices of his house were what is called under-grounds, on the banks of the Thames. This little reptile accidentally appeared to servants emerging from a hole in the skirting of the kitchen, and for the first year constantly withdrew upon their approach. From their kindness, however, and from partaking of food given to him, he gradually - J ' L *.? ? C rn.vsillni.itif nnr] /l?t,f|flfr acquired nauus ui laiiuuuiuj , a?u the following three years, regularly came out every day, particularly at meal time, and partook of the food given him by the servants. One of the most remarkable features in'Jiis artificial state of existence was his strong partiality for warmth, as during the winter he regularly (contrary to the cold-blooded tendency of his nature) came out of his hole in the evening, and directly made for the hearth, in front of a good kitchen fire, where he would continue to bask and enjoy himself until the family retired to rest. There happened to be, at the same time, a favorite old domestic cat, and a sort of attachment existed between the two incongruous inmates; the frog frequently ncstiing under the warm fur of the cat; whilst the cat appeared extremely jealous of interrupting the comforts and convenience of P the frog. P _ IIOW TO BE SICK. 1. Be good natured about it. You may have been very unwise, even foolish, in getting sick.?But do not now, by fretfulness, render the matter worse. 2. Be prompt in employing means of cure.?Ohita urincipiis, the old Latins . would say; which amounts nearly to our vulgar proverb?A stitch in time saves nine. Many have died who, had they applied remedies a day earlier, might have lived. 3. Take time to get well. The constitution invaded by disease cannot borestored to vigor and health in a moment. The regaining of its wasted energies must cost some time. Many, by disregarding this consideration, get sick again, arid not * /tin There is no object in regard P to which wc more appropriately apply , the adage, Make haste slowhj, than that . of getting well. [ 4. Resolve to be more careful to keep well in future. No man, surely, should fail to learn wisdom by tljo tilings which hp <nff r?. | C>. Make a time of sicknfi? n time o solemn reflection on the f>ast. Siekro occasions a break in the current of life. Inquire h>w that current Ititlwrto lia*?' flowed. Inquire after neglected dirties, j In sickness the soul views things with a more sober eye. Estimates then formed come nearer the truth than is often, under other circumstances, t!ie case. 0. In sickness, if you have the prospect of being well again, consider how you may be more useful iu future. Were you, when laid on your bed, a Christian? Then you have to pursue afresh, with redoubled ardor, your oifward course,? Were you not a Christian? Then let this 1 \Ck flm finoo r\f nriirinnr nil Pltwurf* wv iiiv liiiiiy vi ? O tin. iv vui wiisccrate to him your returning strength, and commence living anew, and to the glory of his name. 7. In sickness recognize the hand of God.?" Affliction comcth not from thedust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground." Whatever may haye been your agency, or the agency of your fellow-men, the Lord's hand is to be acknowledged in the things which we suffer. Be still, there fore, before God. " Hear ye the rod and him who hath appointed it." Let sickness be a time of acquainting yourself with r God, with his character, his promises, his threatenings,?with every tiling by ' which lie makes himself known. 8. In sickness bring yourself near to eternity. God may have seen you too neglectful of the high interests of that state. Sickness may have been sent as an admonition to awaken you to better views ?to a sense of your frailty, and a new -j course of action. Fail not, therefore toij use a time of sickness for the high purposes of promoting your immortal well-being.?Tt Essex Register, >' An unfortunate shoulder of jiut-t, ton.?A few days ago a butcher in thir neighborhood who has always been considered wide awake, lost a shoulder of mutton, and having ascertained that it had been stolen by a certain dog belonging to a certain attorney, he lost no time in repairing to its owner and accosted him as follows: Pray sir, if a dog comes to my shop and runs away with a quarter of meat, cannot I make the dog's owner pay for the loss? Certainly, said the lawyer.? Then, replied the butcher, I'd thank you for 3s and 9d which is the cost price of a sholder of mutton your pointer has jest stolen from me. The lawyer naid the monev. and the knight of the cleaver thanking and wishing him a good morning was leaving the office; but the solicitor said, stay sir. I must trouble you for my fee.?You came to consult me, I gave you my opinion, and ' 1 charge Oa and 8d. The butcher looked exceedingly sheepish but instantly paid the amount and returned home with the loss of his mutton and an additional loss of 2a and lid.?Cheltenham Chi oil. Western Carolina Temper* ance Advocate, By reference to the proceedings of the Temperance Convention, which we publish this week, it will be seen that it was determined to publish at this place, as soon as practicable, a monthly periodical of the above title, devoted to the temperance reformation, and furnished at the very low price of fifty cents a copy.? That such a paper as this, properly conducted, would be of great service to the temperance cause in this section of the country, none we presume will deny.? But the unusually low price at which it was fixed by the" convention, will create a necessity for a very large subscription, ! * * h? Aurv kir tlio A/tfirilir rvf US I lUUSt UfJ UlcillU lip iiiu uuiif ut ?#$ the friends of the temperance cause throughout the country generally, and the sooner attention is called to the subject, the greater the probability of success. Each member of the Convention stands pledged to do what may be in his power to secure the object of the Convention, and will be expected to be active as an agent for the paper. Efforts will be made to enlist the different churches in favor of the enterprize,. and it is hoped that ministers of all denominations friendiy to the temperance reformation will exert themselves to procure subscribers. We arc sorry to know.,, and ashamed to tell it, that, there are professed christians, and professed minister* of Christ, in this country, who do all. ithevcanin nnnosinz and Dicvcnthvrthe success of this noble, patriotic, amf christian cause.
