SEASONS FOR LOVING.
BY W. C. BBYAST, Dost thou idly nsk to hear At what gentle seasons Nymphs relent, when lovers near Preo the tenderest reasons? Ah, they g've their faith loo oft To the cureless wooer; Maidens' hearts are always soft,' Would that men's were truer ! Woo the fair one, when around Early birds are singing; When o'er the flagrant ground Early floweis are springing: When iho brookside, bank, nnd grovo, All with blossoms ladon, Shine with beauty, brcaiho of love, Woo the timid maiden. Woo her, when, with rosy blu-h, Summer eve is sinking. When on rills that softly gush, Stars are softly twinkling; When through boughs that knit the bow'r, Moonlight gleams are stealing; Woo her, till the gentle hour Wakes a gentler feeling. Woo her when autumnal dyes Tinge the woody mountain; When the drooping foliage lies, In the half-choked fountain; Lcf the scene that tells how fast Youth is parsing over, Warn her, ere her bloom is past, To secure her Lover. Woo her when the north windscoll At the lattice nightly; When, within the cheerful hall, Blaze the faggots brightly; While the wintry tempest round Sweeps the landscape hoary, Sweeter in her ear shall sound Love's delightful story. THE POOR. God shield the poor and needy, From winter's cruel reign, For who will else protect them, Now frosts have come again ! Oh ye, who dwell in splendor, ' Have every wish allayed, Heed to the voices praying, For succor and for aid ! Let fortune's favors chill not The heart to accents meek; Like winter's ruthless breezes, Be not thy heart as bleak ! Go to the humble cottage, Where hearts so wrongly bleed, And turn those tears to gladness, And Ood will lless the deed ! Written for the Modt-1 American Courier. TRICE OF WHEAT IN OLDEN TIMES. Among the curiosities of Agriculture, may be mentioned tho fact that in England, in tho year 1043, wheat sold for sixpence per quarter, of 8 bushels, or one cent and a half a bushel; in 128G, for 2s. 8d.; but from one storm of rain, thunder and lightning, on St. Margaret's night, 20th Ju- Jy of that year, it lose to the enormous height of two shillings a bushel! In 1557, before harvest it was 13 a quarter; after harvest it fell to 75 cents a quarter, of 8 bushels. High prices usu ally indicate the prosperity of other puisuits, without which agriculture never thrives and all the world over, prosperous agriculture is signifi cant of advancing civilization. It is the great source of wealth, as wealth is the means of ame lioration and refinement. Let tho loom and tl.o anvil flourish near to the plough, and then the plough will bring its ritches out of ll.n great productive machine the earth and will) abundance come.- education and amendment in every thing. Men get more pow er of self government, and Euhmit less to being too much governed by others, and the more inti mately individual interests becomes identified and blended with the public interest, tho more per feet will be the administration of public affairs, the public expenses will be lessoned, end the security for peace strengthened. All these are truths which every farmer and planter, above ell other people in the world, ought to learn and practice upon. Military Arrangements. Somo important movements have recently been made by the War Department for the we3tern frontier of the re public. The departments of Oregon and Cali. fornia (10 end 11) Bra consolidated into one, called "the third or Pacific division," under the command of Brevet Major General Persil F. Smith. The Adjutant General's last general or ders designate these arrangements. General Or der No. 64 creates the "third or Pacific divis. ion;" No. 55 assigns Hrevet Brigadier Ceneral Riley, Lieutenant Colonel 2J artillery, to brevet rank: and No. 61 assigns General Smith to the command of the Pacific division, on his brevet rank of brigadier general. From the established character of both these distinguished officers, il will be seen that they are admirably qualified for the responsible and distant stations to which they have been respectively assigned Wash. Union. " If good people," said Archbishop LUer, "would but make their goodness agreeable, and 6mile instead of frowning in their virtue, how many would they win to the good cause." Woman and Pitt.

I procured a bottle, which was administered ac cording to directions, and saw she begin to mend; and before Iho first bottle was gone she was up. i procured a second and she took that, and now she is I think, cured, or nearly so. She attends to her daily labor, and I hcur nu complaint from her. K. Li. J fc.r r r.KSlJ IN Consumptive Patients!
