Is it to go to church to day, To look devout and seem to pray, And ere to-morrow's sun goes down Re dealing slander through the town ? Does every sanctimonious fucc Denote the certain reign of grace ? Does not a phiz that scowls at sin Oft viel hypocrisy within ? Is it to make our daily walk, And of our own good deeds to talk, Yet often practice secret crime, And thus mis-spend our precious time Is it for sect and creed to fipht, To call our zeal the rule of right, When what we wish is, at the beet, To see our church excel the rest ? Is it to wear the christian dress. And love to all mankind profess, To treat with scorn the humble poor, And bar against them every door ? Oh, no, religion means not this : Its fruits more sweet and fairer is Its precept this : to others do As you would have them do to you. It grieves to hear an ill report And scorns with human woes to sport Of others' deeds it speaks no ill, Rut tells of good or else keeps still. And does Religion this impart? Then may its influence fill my heart; O! haste the blissful, joyful day, When all the earth may own its sway. Miiiunl Assistance, A man very lame Was a little to blame To stray from his humble abode ,' Hot, thiisty, bemired, And hertily tired, lie laid himself down in the road. While thus he reclined, A man w ho was blind Came by and entreated his aid ; "Deprived of my sight, Unassisted to-night, I shall not reach home, I'm afraid." ' Intelligence give Of the place where you live," Said the cripple. ' Perhaps 1 may know it In my road it may be, And if you'll carry me. It will give me much pleasure to show it. "Great strength you have gut. AVhirh, alas! I have not, In rny legs so fatigued every nerve is ; For the use of your back, For the eyes which you lack, My pair shall be much at your kervice " Said the other poor man. "What an excellent plan ! Tray, get on my shoulders, good brother ; I see all mankind, If they are but inclined. May constantly help one another." Tli Chinese Once almost Christians. A remarkable circumbtance is mentioned by 6ome of the an cient authors, which if true, is a fuct which has escaped tr.any of the antiquarians of the present day, and shows that the Chinese were almost Christians 1 H.IO years ago. It is related to us by Mr. T.Carter, a gentle man of the New York Bar, who has bestowed a considerable degree ot study upon tho sub ject, and who delivers a lecture upon the an cient religions of the Chinese, Egyptians, and Romans, and their mythological tables, on Mon- day evening next. The celebrated Confucius, 500 years before the Christian era, predicted that at some future time a great and Holy Being should arise in the west. Little attention, however, was paid to this prediction until about the time of our Saviour, when one of the Chinese emperors re solved to act upon the prophecy and search for a new religion. He appointed C3inmisjioners for that purpose who like the magi of the Scriptures went in search of the expected God and travelled to wards Judea, which lies directly westward of China, whila their countrymen awaited their return. The commissioners on their way short ly arrived at Hindustan and India, and meeting there with a system of worbhip new to them they supposed they hud found the objectof their search and went no further. After a sufficient degree of study to instruct their countrymen in the newly found religion, they returned with the strange doctrine of tho metempeychoisis and transmigration of souls. Had the Delegates of the Emperor gone a little further, it is possible that now the whole empire of' China might have bten one vtnt Christian nation. yew ark Daily Adierhter. The Obl-men and Women In th West Indies. Obi, and gambling, are the only instances I have been able to discover, among the natives of the negro land in Africa, in which any effort at combining ideas has ever been demonstrated. The science of obi is very extensive. Oil, for the purpose of bewitching people, or consum ing them by lingering illness, is made of grave dirt, hair, teeth of sharks, and other creatures, blood, feathers, egg shells, images in wax, the hearts of birds, and some potent roots, weeds and bushes, of which Europeans at this time are ignorant ; but which were known, for the same purposes, to the ancients. Certain mix tures of these ingredients are burnt, or buried very deep in the ground ; or hung up a chim ney ; or laid under the threshold of the door of the party to suffer ; with incantation songs or curses, performed at midnight, regarding the aspects of the moon. A negro who thinks him self bewitched by obi, will apply to an Obi man or Obi-troman, for cure laws have been made in the West Indios to punish this obian practice with death ; but they have no effect. Iaws constiucted in the West Indies can never suppress the effect of ideas, the origin of which is in the centre of Africa. I saw the obi of the famous nogro robber, Three fingered Jack, the terror of Jamaica in 170 and 171. The Maroons who slew him brought it to me. His obi consisted of the end of a goat's horn, filled with a compound of grave dirt, ashes, the blood of a black cat, and human tkt ; all mixed into a kind of paste. A black cat's foot, a dried toad, a pig's tail, n flip of parchment of kid's skin, with characters mark ed in blood on it, were also in his obian bag. These, with a keen sabre, and two guns, like Robinson Crusoe, were all his obi ; with which, and his courage in descending into the plans, and plundering to supply his wants, and his skill in retreating into difficult fastnesses, com manding the only access to them where none dared to follow him, he terrified the inhabitants, and set the civil power and the neighboring militia of that island, at defiance for '.wo years. j He made neither accomplices nor associate. There were a few runaway negroes in the woods near Mount Licanus, the place of his retreat ; but he had crossed their foreheads with some of the mngic in his horn, and they could not betray him. But he trusted no one. lie i scorned assistance. He ascended above Spnr- 1 taeus. lie robbed alone ; fought all his bat ; ties alone, and always killed his pursuers. ; By his mogic he was not only the dread of the negroes, but there were many white peo- pie who believed he was possessed of some su pernatural power. In hot climates females marry very young, and often with great dispari ' ty of age. Hern Jack was tho author ot mn- ny troubles ; for several matches proved unhap py. ''Give a dog an ill name, and hing him. I Clamors rose on clamors ogninst the cruel sor j ceror ; and every conjugal mishap was laid at ' the door of Jack's spell on the wedding day. Clod knows poor Jack had sins enough of his own to carry, without loading him with the sins ' of others. He would sooner have made a Me ' dean, cualdron for the whole island, than dis turb one lady's happiness. He had many op : portunitirs ; and, though he had a mortal ha . tred to white men, he was never known to hurt a child or abase a woman. But even Jack himself was born to die. Allured by the rewards offered by governor Dalling, in proclamation, dated the 10th of December of 17S0. and by a resolution which followed it, of the house of assembly, two ne groes, named Quasher, and Sam both of Scots Hall, Maroon town, with party of their towns men went in 6earch of him. Quasher, before he set out on the exhibition, got himself christened, and changed his name lo James Tteeder The PTneitit inn ennimeneed ' ; and the whole party had been creeping about in the woods tor three weeks, and blockading, as it were, the deepet recesses of the most in accessible part of the island, were Jack, fur re mote from aU human society, resided but in vain. Ueeder and Sam, tired with this mode of war resolved on proceeding in search of hit retreat, and taking him by storming it, or perishing in the attempt. They look with them a little boy, a proper spirit, and a good shot, and left the rest of the party. These three, whom 1 well knew, had not been long separated, before their cunning eyes discovered, by impressions among the weeds and bushes, that 6ome person mubt have lately been that way. They softly followed these impressions, making not the least noise. Presently they discovered a smoke. They prepared for war. They came upon Jack before he perceived them. He was roast ing jdantaini, by a little fire on the ground, at the mouth ot a cave. This was a scene ; not where ordinary actora had a common part to play. Jack's looks were fierce and terrible. He told them he would kill them. Reeder, iiibtead of shooting Jaek, replied, that his obi had no power to hurt him ; for he was christened ; and that his name was no longer Quasher. Jack knew Reeder ; and, as if paralyzed, ho let his two guns remain on the ground and took up on ly his cutlass. These two had a desperate engagement sev eral years before, in the woods ; in which con flict Jack lost the two fingers, which was the origin of his present name ; but Jack then beat Reeder, and almost killed him, with several o thers who assisted him, and they fled from Jack. To do Three Fingered Jack justice, he would now have killed both Reeder and Sam ; for, at first, they were frightened at the sight of him, and the dreadful tone of voice ; and well they might ; they had beside no retreat, and were to grapple with the bravest and strongest man in the world. But Jack was cowed ; for he had prophesied tchitt obi would get tho better of him ; and from experience, he knew the charm would lose none of its strength in the hands of Reeder. Without further parley, Jack, with his cut lass in his hand, threw himself down a preci pice at the back of the cave. Reader's gun missed fire. Sam shot him in the shoulder. Reeder, like an English bull-dog, never looked, but, with his cutlass m his hand, plunged head- long down alter Jack. X he descent was ahout tinny yarns, aim aimosi pcrpenuicuiar. i.m l of them had preserved their cutlasses in the j fall. Here was the stage on which two of the stoutest hearts that were ever hooped with ribs began their bloody struggle. I he little bov . who was ordered to keep back, out of harm a . way, now reached the top of the precipice, and, during the fight, shot Jack in the stomach. Sam was crsfty, and coolly took a round a bout way to get to tho field of action. When arrived at the spot where it began, Jack and Reeder had closed, and tumbled together down ; another precipice, on the Bide of the mountain, j in which fall they both lost their weapons, Sam descended after them, who also lost his i cutlass, among the trees and bushes in getting down. When he come up to them, though ; without weapons, they were not idle ; and luck- i!y for Reeder, Jack's wounds were deep and desperate, nnd he was in great agony. ! Sam came up in just time enough to save ! Reeder: for Jack had caught him bv the throat and with his giant's grasp. Reeder then was with his right hand almost cut off, and Jack : streaming with blood from his shoulder and stomach; both covered with gore and gashes. In this state Sam was umpire; and decided the lute ot the battle. He knocked Jack down with a piece of a rock. Whun the lion fell; tho two tigers got npon him and beat his brains out with stones. The little biy soon after found his way to them. He hnd a cutlass, with which they cut off Jack's head and three fingeied hand, and took them in triumph to Morant Bay; There they put their trophies into a pail of ruin. n . i .

Let every inechunic or laborer havu at his place unj employment two pitchers thus provided, and with lids or covers; the one to contain the water for drinking, the other for evaporation, and he can always have a supply of cold water for warm weather. Any person can test this by dipping a finger in wa ter, and hidding it in the air of a warm day ; after doing this three or four times, he will find his finger uncomfortably cold.

The following authentic par ticulars will interest many readers: "Sophia, at the time of their marriage, was only sixteen years of age, and was a princess of great personal charms and menal endow ments, yet her attractions did not retain the affections of her husband. After she hnd brought him a son and a daughter, he neglected his o miable consort, and attached himself to a favor ite mistress. "Such was the situation of Sophia when Count Konigsniark, a Swedish nobleman, arri ved at Hanover. He was a man of good figure, and professional gallantry ; had been formerly enamoured of Sophia at Zell, and was supposed to have made some impression on her heart. On the sight of her his passion, which had been di minished by absence, broke out with increasing violence; he had the impudence publicly tore new his attentions ; and as George was absent at the army, he made his solicitations with re doubled ardour. Information of his attachment, and of his success, was conveyed to Ernest Au gustus ; and one evening, as the Count came out of her apartment, and wns crossing a pas Mpp, ,e was pul to ,i,,an by persons placed ta ,l)t(.rcept him, in the presence of the Elector ; nnn- trndition still marks the spot where this m,,r,Pr wg committed. Sophia was immedi- ntf,)y pt Jer arrest ; and though she solemn ly protested her innocence, yet circumstances Fp,,j(0 strongly against her. "George, who never loved his wife, gave im plicit credit to the account of her infidelity, as related by his futher ; consented to her impris onment, and obtained from the ecclesiastical consistory a divorce, which was passed on the 2Slh of December, 1G91. Ami even her father, the Duke of Zell, who doated on his only (laugh ter, does not 6cem to have entertained any doubts of fur guilt, for always continued up- on the strictest terms of friendship with Ernest Augustus, and his son-in-law. "The unfortunate Sophia was coni.ned in the castle of Alden, situated 01: the small river Al ler, in the duchy of Zel!. She terminated her miserable existence, after a long captivity of thirty-two years, on the 13th of November, 1720, in the sixty-first year of her age, or seven months before the death of George the First and she was announced in the 'Gazette' under the title ot the Elect ress Dowager of I lanover. "During her whole confinement she behaved wild doless mildness than dignity ; and on re ceiving the sacrament once cveiy week, ne ver omitted, on that awful occusion, making the most solemn uKsricrutions that the bh not guilty of the crime laid to her charge. Subse quent circumstances have come to light, which appear to justify her memory; and repoitenre current in Hanover that herchsracier wasbsse ly defamed, and that she fell a sacrifice to the ! jcbIoukIv and perfidy ot the Countess ol I latin, I ' . .

It brings up the very age, with all Us bustle and every day affairs, and marks its genius and its spirit more than the most labored description of the historian. Who can take a paper dsted half a-ccutnry ago, with out the thought that almost every name there printed is now cut upon a tombstone at the head of an epitaph ? A Whlpper to tho Wife. Study your husband's temper and character ; and be it your pride and pleasure to conform to his wishos. Check at once the first advancos to contradiction, even of the most trival nature. Bewaro of the first dispute. Whatever might have been concealed as a defect from the lover, must with greater dili gence, be concealed from the husband. The most intimate nnd tender familiarity cannot surely be supposed to exclude decorum. Let your husband be dearer and of more con sequence to you thnn any other human being; and have no hesitation in confessing those feelings to him. Endeavor to msko your husband's habitation alluring and delightful to him. Eet it he a sanctuary to which his heart may al vaysturn from the ills and anxieties of lite. I know no two femole attractions so capti vating to mon as delicacy and modesty. If possible, let your husband supposo you think him a good busband, and it will bo a strong stimulous to his being so. No attractions renders a woman at all times so agreeable to her husband as cheerfulness and good humor. In the article of dress, study your husband's taste, endeavor to wear what he thinks becomes you best. Make yourself as useful to him as you can, nnd let him see you employed as much as pos sible in economical pursuits. Endeavor to feel pleased with your husband's friends. Encourage in your husband a desire of read ing out at his leisure hours. On the day of her marriage a woman's tour of gnyety should bo ended. How indecorous anil offensive it is to see a woman exercising authority over her husband and saying "I will have iteo." "It shall be done as I like,"&.c. Never join in a jest or laugh ogainst your husband. Assiduously conceal his faults nnd speak only of his merits. In married life confidants are by no means desiroble. Conceal from others any little discord or dis union that occurs between you and your husband. Never receive the particular attention of any other men. Be you ever so conscious of a superiority of judgement or talent, never let it appear to your husband. Hint for HrsB.isrs and tvrs Deceive not one another in small things or in great One little single lie has before now di-tuibed a whole married life A small cause has often great consequences. Fold not the hands togethi r and sit iilli; "Laziness is the devil's cushion." Do not run much from home. "One's own hearth is gold worth." Many a marriage, my friends, begins like the rosy morning, and then falls away like a snow wreath. And why, my friends? Because the married pair neglect to be as well pleasing to each other alter marriage as before. Endeavor always, my children, to please one another; but, at the same time, keep God in your thoughts Lavivh not all your love on to-day, for remem ber that marriage has it's to-morrow likewise, and its day alter to-morrow, too. "Sparc as one may spare fuel for the winter." Consider, my daughters, what the word house wife expresses. The married woman is her husband's domestic faith ; in her hands he rau't he able to confide bouse and family be able to entrust her the key of his heart as well as the key of his eating room. His honor and his home are under her keeping his well-being is in her hand. Think of this And you, my sons, be faithful husbands and pood fathers of families. Act so that your wives shall esteem and love you Fredrica Brttntr J Great Ehoestrian Show.

The following from one of the old British Po ets is exquisite. It i the very essence of the aroma of fancy. It is addressed to a lady upon whose bosom a Hike of snow fell and melted : The envious snow comes down in haste To prove thy breast less fair. But grieves to see itself sur pasted, And melt into a tear. Dignity of Labor. In early life David kept his father's shorp : his was a life of indus try ; and though fwlisli men think it degrading to perform any useful labor, yet in the eyes of wise men industry is truly honorable, and thn most useful man is tho happiost. A life of labor is man's natural condition, nnd most favoruble to mental health and bodily vigour. Bishop Hall says, "Sweet is the destiny tif all trade, whether ef the brow or of the mind. God never allowed any man to do nothing." From tha ranks of industry have the world's greatest men been taken. Rome was more than once saved by a man who was sent for from the plough. Moses had been keeping sheep for forty yrari before he came forth as the deliverer of Israel. The Apostles were chrnen from amongst tho hardy and laborious fishermen. From whenco I infer that, when God has any great work to perform, he selects as his instruments those who by their previous occupation, had acquired ha bits of industry, skill and perseverance ; and that, in every department of society, they hps the most honorable who earn their own living1 by their own labor. DuTcn Butter. The Dutch Buiter is cele brated for its excellence. The following is said to be the mode in which it is prepared : After having milked their cows, tho Dutch leave their milk to get quite cold before they put it in the pans. When placed tlierein, they do not permit it to stand for the cream to rise more than about four hours. They then et;r it together more intimately, to combine the milk and cream, and continue thus to do at least two or three times a day. If it be agitated in this manner, as occasionally happens, till th whole be quite thick, the butter thus obtained is the more highly esteemed. As soon it acquires the usual consistency, it is churned commonly about an hour, till the butter begin to form ; cold water is then added, proportioned to the quantity of milk, for the purpose of facili tating the s-'peration of the buttermilk. Tba butter being properly come, it is taken from the churn, and repeatedly washed and kneaded in fresh water, till the buttermilk is all express ed, and it no longer retains any tinge of white. By this simple mode, not on'y far more butter is obtained from the same quantity of milk than in any other way, but the butter itselfi firm er, sweeter, and continues longer fresh than tho generality of butter, while the buttermilk is in finitely more agreeable to the palate. Steaks ako Omrs Meat to he broiTeJ should bo filing till it is tender ; the inside of a sirloin of beef, cut into stenks, is greatly prefer red by most people. But steaks arc generally cut from the rump (the middle i the bet,) a botit six inches long, four inches wide.aud half an inch thick. Do not heat them, it make them dry and tasteless. Steaks should be don quickly ; for this purpose, take care to have very clear brisk fire ; throw a little salt on it, make the gridiron hot, nnd set it slantinrj to pre vent tho fat from dropping into the fire, nnd nn king a smoke, It require more practice nnd core than is generally supposed to do etuaks to a nicety. I.n'Di-lmbi.e Ink. An Exchange paper says : The milk whiA exudes from the branches of sumach, is the best indelible ink that can be used. Break off one of the stems that support the leaves, and writo what may be wanted with it. In a short time it becomes a beautiful jet black, and can never be wa-die-.l out. An ingen'ous mechanic of Cincinnati, having invented n new washing lunching, or t ikenoiit a patent for an old one, which answers the pur pose equally ns well, headed his advertisement thus: every man disown washerwoman."
