The jocund music of the happy bird Tails

The inanimate and gloomy picture reflect*
its dark sba dee upon tbe quick tablets of
your own soul, and overwhelms it with de
pression and despair. Wc sprang from the
dust; we are the creatures of tbe world; and
our happiness bangs from the ten thousand
circumstances, and combination of circum
stances. that go to make it up. as the blush
ing fruit from the tender stem. We are the
children of the land in wbicb wc dwell, and
look to it for our happiness and support, as
an infant to tbe smiles and carcases of a lov
ing mother. Our enjoyment is never separ
ated from tbe objects that surround us in the
material world. The landscape outstreeb

stars, the heavens mottled with a thousand
glorious hues, (bat gorgeously brighten the
trncts of illimitable space, tbe air, the chan

ed ill a flood of light that poured down from
the morning sun. each modest flower, each
blushing rose, each leaf, each gorgeous bloom
attracted light and hue. and fragrance, from
heaven, to attach to this lower world, and
for a time, to bless man with all the charms
and transports of the ethereal world. At
every step new ol»i*-cU break upon your
view, and new charms inspire your soul. It is
one continued scene or variety, life, beauty
and glory. The nimble squirrel skips along
the foot of an eld elm, another chatters a*

its trunk sir* ants the honeysuckle loaded
with flowers mid fragrance. The stately
oak, the noble walnut, tbe smooth maple,

fictions, and endowed with a hoiv rapturous
love for all that is divine, exalted, resplen
dent, infinite, pure, ethereal, and beatific.

less as before the fall.
Thus it is with the journey through lift. —
There is evety grade of happiness, from the
man who is low, debased, and groveling, in
to whose insensate heart, scarce ever shiues
a single ray of pleasure, to the noble, sensi
tive, comprehensive mortal, Into whose ca
pacious. aspiring, and uplifted soul is reflec
ted tbe joys of angel*, and the apprehensina
and sublime rationality of God himself.
Happiness is not a negative, a dull nnd
nameless state. It i* one essentially of ac
tivity, and implies an exalted impression of
pleasure upon the faculties of the soul.—
Pleasure alone is an inferior state, and is
enjoyed in some degreoby the lowest of the
Human species.
The happiness of life, is in pfoportioo to
the exaltation of delightful impressions, and
tbeir duration. We are happy in proportion
as our knowledge is extended, as «re delight
in and subject onr minds to noble thoughts
and exalted impressions; and our sonls are
dark, miserable, and wretched, as tbev are
benighted by ignorance, shut out from the
bright lights of truth and knowledge, and
moved by low and degraded emotions. The
mind is to happiness what tbe eyes are to
the objects of tbe physical world. The blind
cannot see. neither can tbe stolid, debased,
uncultured man perceive those oolite and
glorious things; through the spiritual sense,
that fill the soul with rapture.
Happiness consists in the love of tbe refin
ed, tbe good, tbe exalted, tbe sublime, and
beautiful. It is in tbe power of every man
to expand, and widen the area of his happi
ness by cultivating a knowledge of, sot) a
love for tbe virtuous. tbc spiritual. and tbc
refined. Shut out that from your aoul which
ia ignoble and degrading, and let tin mind
dwell only upon that which ia pure ancon
laminated. and bcrutiful. and your pathway
through life will l»e slrown with tlowera of
joy. The whole earth below, and heavens
above, are all full of beauty, sublimity and

Uev. Theo. Clapp, having attended a fash
ionable party in if. Orleans makes the fol
lodirtft natural and beautiful reflections:—
“1 spent an hour or more in this cheerful
circle, where al! things to the eye and ear
were refined, orderly, and decorous. The
hesrls of that company were visible o-ily to
the Omniscient One. I shall refer to the iin
pretsions made on my mjpil by their ex ter.
nnl nppearanee. llefore me stood the young
and happy, upon w hose fates and fortunes
the sombre shadows ol adversity hud not yet
gatls rcd; their mimla wire bright and buoy
ant,their steps elustic their iare opeutd to
the melody of sound, their eyes radiant " ilh
pleasure. As 1 was meditating upon those
comely brows, flushed with the bloom or ear
ly life; the fair forms of fvminiue grace and
loveliness; the dignified, uccutn piisbed man
nets uf those more ndvanced in years ; the
music j sprightly conversation, wit, love,
gaycty anil joyousness which characterised
the whole scene,—a sweet, profound, unwon
ted perception of God's goodness captivated
my soul. Such intense feelings of piety I had
never before experienced, I said to myself
“It Inr* pleaded God ‘to make mau a little
lower titan the angels, and to crown li.m
with glory and honor.' Ilh ia so beautiful
here, what v II be not become In that future
stale,where our loftiest ideals and to-tual at.
tainm-ots both will regularly advance inn
progression that ia infinite !” I was wrapt
in delightful visions of a spiritual world.—
This thought look complete possesion of my
mind. God is too good not to prov ide for
us something nobler, better, greater, more
permanent, and more satisfying than the
transitory possessions and pleasures of time.
Csn lie pee,sent to us tbc 'chalice of existence,
and then tlnsh it from our lips just as we be
gin fo taste its joys ? Is not his infinite love
a pledge that be will never treat us so cru
elly? Would a kind parent promise his chil
dren favors which he never iuteded to bestow
on them ? Can God awaken irrepressible
dr-tres of continued, unending happiness,
only to lie crushed out and disappointed for
evu ? Nothing in mathematics is more cer
taiu than tbe doctrine thut the inherent, cs
si-ufial desires of our moral nature will be
compb-tely grstilied. Can they lie, if death
is an eternal sleep

Lieut. Maury is a square, frigate-built,
trimlegged gentleman, live feel eight and u

with a bold prow, und ohviou-Iy intended

fifty-two January lu-t past, but. were it not

aicntly weather beaten in hulk to justify a
suspicion of that age. by nearly hall a score.
Everything about him is square, except his
ideas, which are round and solid as a tw enty
four pound ball. His head is solid and
square ; his face is solid and square ; his
front forehead is solid and square ; his frame
well knit and square ; aud bis presence im
presses a very decided and determined no
tion ol squareness and solidity. His eyes
„nre a bright blue, like the ocean in moderate
soundings ; wide apart and canopied by bis
brows. His hair is dark brown and strong
on the sides and back of his head—none
from the forehead to the crown—the smooth,
shiny surface being a belt of calm between
trade winds. Features flexible, like anneal
ihI metal, playing anon with quiet humor, ns

paired by loss of teeth : delivery rapid, and

and ability.

—The merchant ship Eastern City was burn
ed in August last, on her way from Liver
pool to Melbourne. Tbc description of the
accident is Host thrilling, and the suspense
which the passengers, COO in nnrnber, suffer
ed, truly overwhelming. She was on tire
several days, the flames being smothered in
the hulk, by the exclusion of air. At tbe
Inst moment, just before the flames burst out
of the ill-fated vessel, a sail appeared on the
distant horizuu.aml nearing them at last, res
cued hundreds of human beings from a fear
ful death.

Pjovxan CorRTsmr*.—[From a speech by
J. I). Taylor at a Pioneer celebration in
Ohio.]—One subject always interesting to
Pioneers hail been omitted by the speakers—
Pioneer Courtahipa; He could apeak from
experience of the happy times when boy«
and (firla uacd to “ set up ” together, when
courting was done Sunday nights, and
epm king was enjoyed in the only family
room of the log cabin, blankets the only
partitions, and the curtains nround the bed
of the old folks. About H the children
would clinili the ladder to their bunks, close
under the shake roof and in an hour more
father and mother would retire behind the
blankets leaving the "sparkers" sitting at
opposite corners of a capacious stick chirn
ncy fireplace. Soon the fire wonid n»e<l a
little fixing with the wooden shovel or pok
er. and in resumiug seats, somehow chairs
would manifest unusual attraction for clos
er contiguity. If chilly must sit close to
gether to keep warm ; If dark to keep the
tioars o(T! Of what was then whispered Mr
T. was mum. but when the first hearty smack
broke the cabin stillnes, the gentle breath
ing behind the blankets was o f lon iuterufiled
by u slight hacking cough.
When a s'.rapping boy. Ik 1 fell head over
heels in love with n girl of the rent Ply
mouth Itock stamp. She lived twenty miles
away, and he went to sec her regularly eve
ry fourth Sunday night. He won the lass,
longed to marry her, but as the course of
true love never did run smooth, her mother
objected. He however kept on courting un
til! he got to love everything oil the bid
man’s farm. At last love and perseverance
were rewarded, and the wedding day was
fixed. The new country was sickly anil he
often found himself feeling his pulse as the
day of days grew near, in a tremor lest the
shakes should be added to the fever which
was consuming him.
Kindly got mnrricd without accident,
moved to bis log cabin nud went to house
keeping. Klection soon come on, went to
the polls, was asked if he w as of age and
didn't vote! MrsT. was also annoyed about
it and when election next cume round, that
very morning she presented him with.a little
counterpart of himself. The news reached
the town meeting before him and nobody
now objected to his voting.
New Mods: nr Satmo Gout.—The Cals'
veras Chronicle states that nearly all the
quarts. mills at Angels and Altavillc have
adopted a new mode of caving the gold, or
rather have gone hark to first principles.—
They have tin own away all the shaking ta
llies. blankets, Ac., and adopted the Chilean
bowl or “ Itatea ” which is made of cast
iron, about four feet in diameter, with a con
cave of six inches in the centre from the lev.
el of the sides. A rim three inches in height
extends around the basin, only ienving suffi
cient apace to discharge the water and crush
ed rock. This bowl is hung by throe irou
rods, attached to the rim. and coming to the
centre at tbc top. On the under side of the
bowl is n pivot to which is attached a crank
giving the bowl a rolling motion of three
inches from the centre, keeping everything
perfectly loos? and tentlir* to settle all hea
vy particles to the bottom and centre, and
amalgamate the gold with the quicksilver.—
These bow ls, when iu rapid motion, have nl
most the same movement as the old fashion
ed Chilean bowl when worki d by hand. —-
The invention is by a gentleman of the
Chrystal mill.
The Rev. Tbco. Clapp, tor thirty live years
a clergyman of New Orleuns, in a hook late
ly written by him says: -During the last
two years of my collegiate course, ami the
three devoted to the study of theology, I ne
ver failed, in all sorts of weather, to walk at
least five miles a day, besides spending an
hour in sawing wood, working in a garden,
ot some other labor equally active and invi
gorating. Proper diet, exercise, sleep, and
cleanliness nr - the immutable conditions not
only of physical, but of spiritual health. - ’
Rev. Mr. Clapp's experience fiirni-hcs a
strong argument as to the vast importance
of physical training, lie occupies a high
rank among the original, bold and popular
nu-n of thr times, is nearly seventy years of
ige, and possesses a vigor of hotly, and a vi
vidity, elasticity and glowing freshness of
intellect truly remarkable.
