Make to thyselt a rame, Not in the sculptured aisle; The tnarbel oft beauty its trust, Like Egypt's lofty pile; But ask of him who quell'd Of death the victor btrife, To write it on the blood-bought page Of everlasting life. THE GOLD WATCH. I have now in my hand a gold watch, which combines embelmishment and utility in happy proportions, and is usu ally considered a very valuable appen dage to the person of a gentleman. Its gold seals sparkle with the ruby, the to paz, the saphire and the emerald. I open lli and fiind that the works, without which this elegantly chased case would! to a mere shell, those hands motionless, Md those figures without meaning are made of brass. I investigate further, and usk, wh;U is the spring by which all these are put in motion, made of? I am 'tis steel. I ask what is steel? lne reply is, that it is iron which has undergone a certain proces. So, then J tad the main spring, without which we watch would be motionless, and its ands, figures, and embelmishments but joys, is not of gold; that is not sufficient- 7 good; nor of brass; that would not 2 out of iron. Iron is therefore, the y precious metal, and this watch an "Pt emblem of society. Its hands and yes, which tell the hour, resemble master spirits of the age, to whose noyeinents every eye is directed.

Edward Everett. How to Cook a Husband. We sus pect that the lady editress of the Bos ton Transcript said that "many of our married lady readers are not aware how a good husband ought, to ba cooked, so as to make a good dish of him. We have lately seen a recipe in an English paper, contributed by one "Mary," which points out the modus operandi of prepar ing and cooking husbands. Mary sta tes that many good husbands are spoiled in cooking. Some women go about it as it their lords were bladders, and blow them up. Others keep them constantly in hot water, whiie others again freeze them, by conjugal coldnes's. Some smother them in the hottest beds of con tention and variance, and somo keep them in pickle all their lives. These women always serve them in sauce. Now it connot be supposed, that hus bands will be very tender and good, man aged in this way, but they are, on the contrary quite delicious when preserved. Mary points out her manner, thus: "Get a larg jar, called the jar of cheerful ness, (which by the by, all good wives have at hand.)" Being" placed in it, set him near the fire of conjugal love; let the fire be pretty hot, but especially let it be clear. Above all, let the heat be regular and constant. Cover him over with quietness of affection, kindness and subjection. Keep plenty of these things by you, and be very attentive to fupplv the place of any that may waste by evap oration, or any other causa. Garnish with modest becoming famiiarity, end innocent plesantry; and if you add kiss cs or other confectionaries, accompany them with a sufneint secrecy, cud it would not be amiss, to add a little pru dence and moderation." sprin? las?es' wh'h, like the main J up by the payment of obsrurit w,hicllclass8 are shut up in tA.K lly8nd absolutely ns neeossHrv C?ve?to.8oci5J? as th.e ir a io uie gold watch, arc Ths Macic of a Smile.

Care of Human Figure during Infan cy. The beauty of the human figure depends essentially on skilful nursing during infancy. In that delicate period, the bones are soft and the joints easily dislocated; and deformities and disloca tions are frequently occasioned for which no subsequent care and skill can remedy. In passing along the streets of a vast metropolis, how continually is the eye offended and the heart' pained at the contemplation of objects whose life is rendered miserable by the unpardon able carelessness, or even wanton cruel ty of nurses. How often does it happen that accidents which immediate surgical skill might have remedied, are kept se cret from parents merely to screen do mestic frown well deserved censure, un til they assume a character in which all knowledge is unavailing for purposes of cure. Care is necesary.to guard the the limbs and . vertebra; as the body may easily (if not actually humped) be stinted in it growth; and limbs are weak ened by too much walking or standing before "the bones becomes sufficiently hardened and consolidated to endure pressure. Whenever fatigua U produc ed either to the infant or to the nurse, no more rational or benefical plan can be adopted than the Indian fashion of laying the child on the floor, where it may roll about at pleasure, bringing all the muscles and joints into a healthful and natural action. Queer Robbery.'TQ reporter of the N. Y. Supreme Court, on his way down from Utica, was robbed of his trunk, containing, among other things, the de cisions of the supreme Court during its recent session at Utica. Upon this the Bay State Democrat remarks that as the reporter had the coy -right though he has not acopy left the plunderer had better not attempt to publish them. At any rate, if the rascal will wait a lit tie while, until he can be detected and tried for his theft, he my have the satis faction of seeing his own case stated, possibly, nnd hi3 name figure at large in the.

The following is an extract from our correspondent's letter: Mexico, July 15, 1813. Gentlemen I was very much disap pointed in the Texans not being releas- ad on the 13th of June. It was resolv ed on and would hav been done, but for the arrival of your paper a few days be fore, containing a statmcnt of a new in vasion of Stmta Fe. I do not know what effect the nego tiation now in progress for peace may have upon these men; favorable, I hope, and that is all I except from it; for Mex ico will not treat except on the basis ol re-annexation and the abolition of slavery, to neither of which do I sup pose that Texas will consent. "The Gray Mare is the Better Horse." Most of our readers have heard the expression, and are "at no loss for its so lution; but many may not be aware ot its origin. In the hopes that it may a muse, and prove profitable to them, we give tho story as follows: An English gentleman having married a young lady, who was handsome, ac coolished and rich, expected to reap the havest of matrimonial felicity, but he soon found that she was ol a high do mineering spirit, always contending to bo mistress of him and his family; and he, therefore, resolved to part with her. He went to her father, and told him, no found his daughter of such a temper, and was so heartily tired of her, that if he could replace her in her former home, he would return her every penny oi ner fortune. The old gentleman having in quired into the cause of this complaint, asked him why ho should he more dis quieted at it than any other married man, since it wris a common occurrence with them, and consequently, no more than he ought to have expected; the husband safd ho was so far from giving his assent to this assertion, that he thought himself more unhappy than any other man, his wife had a very attract able spirit, and certainly no man who has a duesenseof rihtand wrong,would ever submit to be governed by his wife. "Sir," said the old man, "you are lit tle acquainted with the world if you do not know that women govern their hus bands, though not indeed by the same method. However, to end all disputes between us, I will put what I have said on this proof, if you are willing to try it. 1 have five horses in my stable; you shall harness them to a cart, in which I will put a basket cuntaining one hundred eggs; and if, in passing through the coun try, and making a strict inquiry into the truth or falsehood of my assertion, and leaving a horse at the house of every man who is master of his family himseff, and an egg only where the wife" governs, you shall find all your eggs gone before your horses, I hope you will then think your own case not uncommon, but will be contented to go home, and look up on your wife as no more than her neigh bors; if on the other hand, your horses go first, I will take my daughter home again, and you shall keep her fortune. This Proposal was two advantageous to be rejected; the young man, there fore, set out with great eagerness to get rid, as he thought, of his horses and his wife. At the first house ho saw, fie heard a woman, whh a shrill and angry voice, call her husband to go to the door. Here he left an egg. you may be sure, without making further enquiry. At :ho next, he met with something of the same kind, and at every ordinary house; in short until his eggs were almost gone; when he arrived at the seat of a gentle man of family and figure in tho country, hi knocked at ths door, and inquired for the master of the house, was told by a servant that his master was not yet otiring, but that his lady was in the par lor. The wife, with great complaisance, desired him to seat himself, and said, if i;;s business was very urgent, sine would uake her Lu-sband to let hiui know it, but would ir.nch rather not disturb him. "Really madam," said he, "my business is only to ask a question, which you can solve as we'd as your - husband, it you will be ingenuous with me you may, doubtless, think it odd, and it may be deemed impolite for a stranget to be so free, but, as a great weight depends upon it, and it may be some advantage to yourself to declare the truth to me, I hope tlicse considerations will plead rry excuse what I wish to know is this whsther you govern your husband, or he rules over you." "Indeed, Sir," re plied the lady, "that is an odd question, but, as 1 think no one ought to be a shamed ot acting rightly, I shall not scru ple to say, that 1 have- been always proud to obey my husband in all things, but, if a woman's own word is to be sus pected in such a case, let him answer for me, for here he comes." The gentleman at that moment en tered the room, and confirmed every word his obedient wife reported in her own favor; upon which he was request ed to choose which horse in the team he liked best, and accept it as a present. A black gelding struck the fancy of the gentleman most, but the lady desired he would choose the gray mare, which she thought would be very fit for her side saddle her husband gave substantial reasons why the black horse would be most useful to them; but the madam still preisted in her claim to the gray mare. "What," said he, "and will you not take her then? butlsay you shall, for I am sure the gray mare is much the better horse." "Well my dear," replied the husband, "if you will have it so, I must give way." "You must take an egg," replied the gentleman carter, "and I must takemy horses back,and endeavour to live in peace and harmony with my wife." .
