THE Cl'DGliED HUSBAND. As Thomas was cudgled one day by his wife, He took to his heels and fled for his life ; Tom's three dearest friends came by in the muss, And saved him al once from the terrible ' cuss;" Then ventured to give him some sober advice— But Tom is a person of honor so nice, Too wise to take counsel, too proud to take warn ing i Three duels he fought, thrice ventured his life Went home, and was cudgled again by his wife.

Removing and Preventing Rust. —«Some persons unptoy an acid to remove rus! from knives; this should never be done under any circumstances. Nothing surpasses rotten stonè i*nd oil for scouring knives and forks.

"Thing:»" from Harper's Weekly. Many complain of neglect who never tried to attract regmd. Consider with yourself whether the wise und gopd would value you more or lets if they knew your »hole character. A grammarian conjugated the increasing heat in somewhat the following style: "Hot. hotter, hottest; hottentot, hottentoter, hotUntotest; liottentotissimo, hoi as an oven, hot as two ov ens, hot as four ovens, hot as seven ovens red hot!" How comfortable to contemplate this away down below zero weather! "Jimmy, are your folks all well ?" "Ves, ma'am, all but Polly Ann." "Why, what's the matter with her?" "Oh, not hin' particlar—only she's had the hoopin' cough once, and she hain't never got over it. The cough ain't any account now, but she has the hoop desp'rate." Some hearts, like primroses, open moät beau tifully in the shadows of life. The following was picked up in the street a few days since, accompanying a little bunch of glossy brown hair, which looked as if it had .been polled out with a fine-tooth comb: Och, Biddy, me darlint, Here's a lock of me hair, An' if there's a snarl in it, Never a bit do I care. Any how! I'm goin' off, Biddy, To work on the track, Ye can take it, and kape it, Until I get back, If ye like: But if you don't, you can let it alone; bedad I 'm not particular. A Dutchman, in describing a span of horses which he had lost, said: "Dey wash very mooch alike, 'specially de off one. One look ed so mooch like both, I could not tell toder from which; when I went after de one I always caught de oder, and I whipped the one almost to death because de oder kicked at me." Nervous Old Lady. —"Dear me! what makes the cars stop here; is there anything*he mat ter?" Smart Young Man. —"Yes, marm; a chaw of tobacco is lying right before the locomo tive. As soon as it's removed we'll he under way again." The man who wrestled with adversity wore out his silk stockings and got worsted. They who drink away their estates, drink the tears of their widows and the blood of their impoverished children. QThe tobacco chewer is said to be like a goose in a Dutch oven—al ways on a spit. A Lost Inheritance Thesis correspondent of the New York Ij^ress writes: I ha|a story to relate to your readers this w<^ which, though occupying more ispace tn I usually dovote to incidents, iconyeyi) excellent a moral, that 1 have yieldetfthe temptation to give it in full, Theâin from Paris to l.vons stormed a t the Äion of Joiwtiv -i town unon the ttlOtl OI JOI^Iiy, .1 tOY\ H U])0!l tile \ TOUte, m again Went OH, after leavtng a iu., T «„i mi ] * r ~ lW pafflgCTS.

'May I presume sir,' said lie; 'to inquire if you are Cle ment 13.' 'Yes. my good man,' replied the youth tvith a haughtiness of manner; 'and 1 have so doubt jo| are Mr. Martin.' 'At your tervice, sir.' returned the otli ir. 'Well, Mt Martin,'continued Clement îi the samebne, 'I began to imagine you intended to jkeep me waiting. That vould not hsfe been the best manner in vhich to hav'insinuated yourself into my jood graces.' The old mm, instead of replying, let iis head fall ipon his breast as if in deep sffliction, anq conducted the new-comer towards an 4<1 fashioned carriage, to vhich a rougMuoking horse was harness ed. 'Here is your carriage, sir,' said Mar tin. 'If you »ill be good enough te get is, 1 will have the honor of conducting yflu to the Hermitage.' 'That my csrriage!' cried Clement.— 'Why, I shall be taken for a travelling ptdler!' Notwithstanding, as there seem ed no means of avoiding it, he took his seat beside the old man, but not without expressions of disdain. In another mo inwt the man bad .seized the reins, and the horse had started on a clumsy trot. lut a few days before, Mr. Clement B.,who now put on so many grand airs was,a simple clerk in a crockery store in Pars, and possessed the reputation of heirg a quiet, unpretending little fellow. Whit, then, had brought about this sud den ind radical transformation? He had becone, since the previous day, a rich man and it may be well understood that the possessor of an income of 20,000 fran« a year finds it difficult to retain the mod(fet demeanor of a poor clerk. On the previous day, while dusting the piles of crockery under his charge, a letter had arrived for Ititn by the post, containing the starting intelligence that one of his uns cles,0f whom he had often heard as an ecceitric and very wealthy old man, but whora he had never seen, had just died at hî chateau in Burgundy, leaving his nepfew, Clement, sole legatee of his es tates to the exclusion of many other heir. The letter was from a notary of the prov ince, tvho desired liim to leave Paris im tnediitely for Joigny, the town near which his utele had resided, where he would be met Ly Martin, an old confidential ser vant of the defunct, and conducted from the ralroad to the 'Hermitage,' the name which the deceased had given to his cha teau and his estate, which constituted the main. Almost driven out of his senses by such an unexpected stroke of fortune he hastened to obey the notary's direc tions; and, upon his arrival al Joigny, joined old Martin, as we have seen. OnjoRed the queer vehicle, in which our hero had so contemptuously taken a place, until after a ride uf several miles the occupants arrived at their destination. Martin ofjered the honors of the Hermi tage to tin new proprietor, called all the servants, and introduced them to their fu ture master, and dien conducted the lat ter to his apartments. 'This was the sleeping apartment of your unele,' said Martin, as they entered a vast apartment, furnished in old fash« ioned style. 'It was the room he died in ten days ago.' But the lepht w, instead of evincing any emotion upon being shown the cham ber of his bene!" ictor, threw upon all around a look of îorn, and cried, 'Upon my word, I can't îy 1 think much of the old boy's taste! I never saw anything so frightfully ugly in ill my life.' 'Notwithstanding, sir,* replied Martin, 'It's the best tAjre n here; and i?you can not content pl<rscl;',l do not really know where you wiflhind other lodgings.' I live here ® You don't imagine I'm hope. For us young Paris is the old place; so Id rookery at once, and such a donkey, fellows, d'ye » I shall sell this be off.' •Sell the Hen ite place oftesi we serrants, wh uoder this n •Mr. Martin,' Stage, your uncle's favor ence! Impossible. And [hoped to end our days Itvhat iill become of us!' I the young man, 'let me have none of your complaints, 1 beg. Get me some dinner, and after ward you will drive me to my notary's. ' After having eaten a hearty meal, not withstanding lie found the meats insipid and the wines sour, the legatee, still ac companied by Martin, re-entered the old carriage, and the two again started off. 'If I am not mistaken,' observed Mr. Clement, after an hour's ride, 'we passed this spot this morning, and that'—poin- j ting to a building—'is the railroad depot: j do we take the cars?' 'You, alone, will do so,' responded his J companion, speaking very gravely, and in | a manner which caused the young man to tremble in spite of himself. 'I, sir, am your uncle, and happily, I am not yet dead. Having heard good accounts of your conduct, I had resolved to make you heir of all that I possess; but, before do ing so, I wished to know whether you were deserving of my generosity, and I had recourse to stratagem, which has thoroughly exposed your true character to me. Good bye, Mr. Clement. Return to your shop, and remember that your ar rogance and ingratitude have lost you that which will never again be placed within your reach.' The old man then gave his foolish nephew a few hundred francs to indemni fy him for the expenses of his trip, took leave of him at the door of the depot, and returned home. The feeling of the youth may readily be imagined, but, as the yel low-covered novels say, 'they connot be described.' I think this true story is an apt illustra: ion of the maxim: 'Never hal loo until you are out of the woods.' Ancient Jewish Notion on Marriage and its Ditties. Marriages were supposed to he arran ged in heaven; and forty days before the birth of a child, it was there announced to whom he or she was to be wedded. The marriage relation should be entered between eighteen and twenty; but these ties do not prevent the zealous student from prosecuting his studies. The poli cy of second marriage was considered doubtful, as nothing could make up for the loss of a wife. ('Isaiah liv. G.) An unmarried person was without any good. (Gen. ii. 18); without jov, (Deur. xiv. 26); without blessing, (Ezek. xliv. 30); with without protection, (Jer. xxxi. 23); with out peace, Jer. v. 24; and could not prop erly be called a man, Gen. v.2. In choice of a wife, regard should be paid to her family, as daughters generally imitated their fathers, and sons their maternal un cles. The most prized connection was that with the family of a sage, or at least with that of a ruler of a synagogue, or the president of a poor's board. Connec tion with the unlettered could not be al lowed, unless the wealth so acquired were to be devoted to assist the sage in his stu dies. In general the unlearned were 'deatfeven while living.' Isaiah xxv. 14. Mutual affection and modesty, especi ally on the part of the wife, was regard ed as the chief means of obtaining male descendants. It was observed that God formed women neither out of the head, lest she should become prond; nor out of the eye, lest she should lust; nor out of the ear, lest she should be curious; nor out of the mouth, lest she should be talk ative; nor out of the heart, lest she should be jealous; nor out of the hand, lest she should be covetous; nor out of the foot, lest she should gad about; but out of the rib, which was always covered. Impro per marriages, from lust, for beauty, or for money, were strongly condemned, and described as leading to wretchedness, in asmuch as whether good or bad, woman is always in the superlative degree. The husband is bound not only to honor and love, but to treat his wife with courtesy; her tears call down divine vengeance. In general, he is to spend less than his means warrant for food, up to his means for his own clothing, and beyond that limit for that of his wife and children. As woman is formed from a rib, and man from the ground, man seeks wife, and vice versa; be only seeks what he has lost. This al so explains why man is more easily recon ciled than woman, he is made of soft earth and she of hard bone. A woman should abstain from all appearance of evil im modesty or impropriety; she should al ways meet her husband cheerfully, clean ly, and kindly, receive his friends with po liteness and affability, and be obedient and respectful. One of Walker's Operations. For ourselves we acknowledge an ina bility to discriminate between the public and private character of an individual, in so far as to agree that he may be a scoun drel in one capacity and a patriot in the other. That Governor Walker is not a man of the highest principles of personal honor will sufficiently appear from the following narrative of one among many simihr financial exploits: When Robert J. Walker was Senator from Mississippi;- he ascertained that an old man in Middlesex county in this State • was disposed to sell a large estate in ne- j groes. Accordingly, in company with a ! colleague in the House of Representa tives, Walker made the old gentleman a j visit, and after a protracted negotiation ; succeeded in purchasing the slaves. And ; he got them on good terms, for the old gentleman, a devoted Democrat, was : charmed by the graceful condescension of the distinguished Senator. Tiie nggre- I gate price of the negroes was something ; more than forty thousand dollars, for j which Walker gave a notecr draft pava- j ble in New Orleans. But the old gentle- j man would not sell his slaves except on : condition that they were to be kept togeth- i er on a plantation in the South. Well, the slaves were taken to New ; Orle ans, were put upon the block and dis- j persed to the four winds, the purchaser I realizing a considerable profit by the 'transaction.' The note or draft matured was presented for payment, was protested and from that day to the present time not a cent has been received either by the old gentleman or his heirs for fifty thousand dollars worth of negroes? Meanwhile Walker has lived in affluence, and is be* lieved now to be a millionaire. Will some one of Walker's apologists impeach the correctness of this story? Let them try it. The substantial truth of the statement shall be verified by testimony which no body can question. But this is only an isolated instance. There were many such in Walker's ca reer, of which the history may yet be written. Is that the sort of person to whom the administration should confide a responsible public trust? [Bichmond South, 10th inst. A Good Example . Many years ago in an obscure country school in Massa» chusetts, aji humble, consientious boy was to be seen; and it was evident to all that his mind was beginning to act and thirst for some intellectual good. He was in search of useful and practical knowledge. Next we see him put forth on foot to set tle in a remote town in the State, and pur sue his fortunes there as a shoemaker, his tools being carefully sent on before him. In a short time he is in business in the position of a county surveyor of Litcefield county, Conn., being the most accom plished mathematician in that section of the Stute. Before he is twenty-five years of age, we find him supplying the astron omical matter of an almanac, in New York. Next he is admitted to the bar, a selffitted lawyer. Now he is found on the bench of the Supreme Court. Next he become a member of the Continental Congress. Then he is a member of the Committee of Six tf> form the Declaration of Independence. He continued a mem ber of Congress for nearly twenty years, and was acknowledged to be one of the most useful men arid wisest councillors of the land. At length, having discharg* ed every office with a perfect ability, and honored in his sphere the name of a Christian, he died regretted and loved by State and Nation. This man was Roger Sherman. We take particular sattsfacs tion, now and then, in chronicling, the careers of such men, and holding them up as bright examples for the youth of the present day to follow. Marmage . If I were talking to my own daughter, I would entreat her never to allow herself to dwell upon marriage as and object of life. Dignity and delicacy sink, I cannot say how rapidly, when once the idea takes possession of the mind; and so, for happiness, there is no more miserable being in existence than a wo man, past the excitement of youth, aim* ing to be married for the sake of being married. She becomes more and more dissatisfied and envious, and neglectful of present duties. May you never be-, come what I have seen many others, soles ly from the influence of this one false de grading principle. A Decided Test . The Providence Journal says: We had a better test of spiritualism than any Boston experiments could afford. When the son of Henry Clny took the stump for James Buchanan, and the spir it of Iiis great father did not rise from the grave, we made up our mind that there was no passing back from the next world to this. fjppGen. Cass is strict in his per sonal habits; will not dine out if he can help it, and g-oes to bed at 10 o' clock, P. M. When at Paris, at balls in his own house, he would quietly slip off to bed at the above hour, leav ing his wife and three daughters to en tertailri the company present. This regime accounts for his untoward vi gor at the advanced age of 75 years. *Maö wants bat honesty nnd indnstr« independent and I " ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTkCES.
