From (M Mother's Magazine.
An exampi.e for mothers in elevated life.
The following incident, I doubt not, will
L . bo perused with interest by the patrons of
the Mother's Magazine; and to a class of
mothers, whose misguided tenderness would
prevent tlie exercise of even salutary discipline,
it may Convey an important lesson.
The incident occurred more than twenty
? years since; yet tlie circumstances arc "fresh
in my recollection. A few facts will serve
to show why the recollection of them should
be thus vivid.
A short tknc previous to my leaving college,
I had received an invitation to become
private tutor to the children of a gentleman
' , of rank and fortune, in the Stale of .
This proj>os;J, by the advice of friends, was
accepted ; and, iu a few weeks after bidding
adieu to my Alma Muter, I left my paternal
roofto enter upon a new an * untried station.
It was emphatically new to me. Although
conscious of possessing adequate literary
Ivnowledge Cor the sphere I was to occupy,
iny heart had many misgivings, during a
journey of more than one hundred miles,
Jest I should i.ul to give suusiucuon 10 me
gent I? nan and lady, whose children were to
, come under my care. I had no personal
acquaintance with them, but their well known
wealth and rank were somehow associated
la my mind w ith overweening indulgence towards
their children. Brought up, as I had
*v\;n, in tl?e country, and little conversant
with the forms and fashions of the world, 1
...d connected wealth with indulgence, and
s prepared, therefore, to see my ill-boding
ihcipatious realized. It was my dclcrml
a ..'ion, however, to put in practice what oir
' ;uisj>ection I was master o? and if I failed
I * onld at least bear from the splendid man
- .> j that best and greatest solace of ouch
: ?a good conscience.
The heart of a youth of diffidence wil
nnietimes knock louder than the knockc
. h which he wraptsat a strange door. I
as rims with myself, as I sought admit
ce at the stalely mansion, whither I wai
.and. A servant opened the door; and
my inquiring alter the gentleman of tin
rse, I was informed, that he he had beet
nt some months, and the period of hi;
? was still uncertain. My letter of in
: -T j jiion conveyed to M.S.?, soon brough
r mi invitation to come in. The mannci
in she noticed me was kind; but tin
.strangeness of my situation, the damp ens
my "feelings by the absence of the gen
, tlwinnn?the conviction that I now had tc
d d only with the mother, and that mother
p'rii ips one of excessive tenderness, with i
iidred other circumstances flirting acros;
.. mind, all contributed to distress and cm
..-r/uss mo. During a brief conversation
i: v. as sealed, that I should enter upon m\
>:ut.es on ihefbllowing day, .at which time
I was to be introduced to my new charge.
At nine; the. next morning, I ontered, foi
! ie tirst time, the room appropriated to oui
eterary labors. It was a spacious chamber,
ouween which and the library opposite, was
wide and extended hall. For several days
"nothing worthy of special notice occurred.
Contrary to my anticipations, the children
;tnrv>arr>i! jrliifhWv. mul lifwniinffk- nflonfii o
naiurc betrayed its weakness, and a natural
fear of giving offence increased my distresss.
It was quite impossible, from her proximity,
that she should not know precisely what had
occurred, and site must now know ever}'
step, in the progress and management of
this difficulty. My ignorance of her views
of discipline, my previous opinion, (formed
upon no proper basis indeed, but somehow
i an opinion, wlueh was realhy with me,) that
notions of discipline among the wealthy and
distinguished ranks of society were of course
lax, presented a powerful temptation to pass
lightly over the offence, and consider that
I which in reality was of serious, ofsruall moI
But I had not been so taught under a pa.
rental roof; and, besides, my conscience was
concerned in faithfully discharging what I
deemed my duty?-judgment and reflection,
I at length, came to my aid, and ray rcsoluB
tiQD was formed, tliat I would proceed with
mildness, but still with firmness^ and though
% imagination still presented dismission, and,:
.as I then thought, disgrace, as the almost
] certain rgsult of perseverance, it de

.o their studies. As I saw little of the
:iU>t!?cr, my boarding place being some dis1
;iitee from the house, 1 had no other means
of judging oftlie-character of her disci])line,
tiuui in the genere! well demeanor and res^xuful
manner of my pupils. In these rcspoets,
Iliad no fault to find; and, at length,
Was ^oming to the conclusion, that wealth
.and rank were not necessarily opposed to
wholesome discipline.
About this time-the incident occurred, to
which I have alluded; afld which, for a short
^tirne, broke up the pleasing anticipations I
had formed, during the few days of my new
employment. > .
One afternoon, having occasion to direct
the Cwest boy to do something, which need
not here bo named, he promptly refused;
aiad, when mildly informed that a complittfcco
of so reasonable a request, \vas ol
course erpected, he exhibited an unantici.
patcd and surprising determination to resist.
1 soon found the spirit of dissatisfaction as
strong inthe other pupils as in him; and at
length, I was tokl in jdaiu terms by one, that
I whs not employod to govern, but to teach.

o.-usiuiu oi we importance, 111 mis eany
stage of ray t^itorsliip, of so managing a case
of difficulty, as on the one hand to secure
the good feelings of my pupils, and, on the
other, to gain their respect and obedience; I
rose li om my seat and pacing the room, took
time to deliberate as to the course I should
pursue. Judge my surprise, and even dis.
tress, as in ohe of the turns I made near the
doer, leading into the hull, (which happened
to be open,) to notice the mother of the children
seated on a sola, with needlework in her
hand. She was employed at the moment
that nay eye fell upon her, and immediately
I turnwf to the opposite side of the room.
For alow moments my heart palpitated distressingly;
true, I ueed not have been thus
embarrassed, my cause was a good one, my
reouisition a nroDtr one: but a then diffident
termination to do my duty, and abide the! t
I might, indeed, have at once referred the i (
case to the mother, who was at hand, and j \
the reference would have disclosed her views <
regarding the moral discipline of her chil- '
drcn?a point which I was extremely nnx- 1
ious to know; ami yet there was too much ' 1
depending, to hazard such a reference?for j
what if she should decide against me ? It i J
was apparent, upon a moment's cousidcra- <
tiou, that it were far better to proceed with '
caution, and upon the presumption, that she f
would sanction mild hut efficient mea- 1
surcs, in subduing a refractory and obsti- <
natc child.
Accordingly, resuming my scat. I inquired
I of the offending boy, wliether he would |
! comnlv with m}* request. A sullen silence I
i was the only response. Ujon this, I hade j
liiin come to tne; this he refused. I then I
advanced to him, and taking him by the j
j arm, led him, with some force to my chair,;
: and proceeded to remonstrate with him upon j
j his conduct, and to inquire of him, whether !
! he thought his imother, were she present,
would justify his conduct ? and then assured
him, that I should adopt and continue to pursue
such a course of correction, as seemed
wise, until he should submit, and would even
. mploy. if necessary, the whole afternoon, to
accomplish so important an object. I cxl
pected this decision, communicated in a firm
. and somewhat stern measure, would have
1 had the desired cfFcct; but not tho least int
dication of relenting could be discovered.
[ On the contrary, he manifested no uneasii

.1 creased, and continued, for more that! an
, ! hour, without, however, the Hist apparent
. effect; and, at length, in a state of feeling
5 nearly bordering upon agony, I was about
to relinquish farther effort as useless.
] More than once, rt was my wonder, that
r the mother was so silent; but I was not sure
t that she had not retired. Leaving my. chair,,
! therefore, I again walked the room, and
s I again ascertained, that she was still occupyi,'
ing her seat. As I passed the door, she
[?J took no notice of mc?was still using her
j | needle, apparently calm and composed as
s! before; but I had time to notice one infalli.
ble indication, that all was not entirely at rest
t within, a deep Hush mautlcd her cheek. Still
r therefore, I could gather nothing by which
2 to forth an opinion as to her views of the
t case. My imagination, indeed, suggested
. that she was keeping vigil, that her boy
> i should come to no serious harm, and was
, j willing so long as lie was exempted from
i: that, that ti?e experiment should be carried
?j through?the lust gratification I should have
. under her roof. Still, reason4 and judgment
, | gave iu'thcir verdict as to the justice and
j propriety of the course I was pursuing, and
: again I returned to punitive measures, con,
vinccd that I could not stay another dav,
unless the obstinate little fellow could be
made to yield. I continued, therefore, yet
, longer to devise and apply one corrective
i after another, until, at length, satisfied, as the
; hours of study were drawing to a close, that
, the only alternative presented was either to
i! appeal to the mother, or to apply the ferule
! to his hand. The former I determined not
;: to do, and much as I regretted this dernier
j resort, I now proceeded to inform him, that
; unless than five minutes he obeyed, I should
, apply the ferule to his hand until he did.
This was a longtime for him to deliberate,
; and as anxious ar fire minutes to m3*selfns I
; ever saw. At length, the pointer approach
; ed to the deciding point; again, 1 admon!
ished him; and, now, every second that pasI
sed, I expected the interference of the mother
' but not a wbispsr from this quarter either
; relieved, or increased my anxiety. At
' length, the probationary season was passed;
upon which, taking the" ferule, I advanced
towards him, and told him with some sternness,
that he must submit, or I sho.uld fe- j
rule him until he did. Up to this moment j
scarcely a muscle of his lace had moved, t
Taking his hand, which he yielded without
much reluctance, I brought down the ferule
u[>on it; a single blow only, and my object
was accomplish!. lie uttered a loud cx;
clamation; followed by a promise, that he
i would immediately com pi}' with my requisi|
tion, and lie did comply, with a promptness
i which indicated the completeness of his
j submission.
Having resumed his scat,T took occasion,
in a few words, to convince him still more
effectually of the impropriety of his conduct,
and to this addedc for the benefit of the whole
group, a few words impressing upon them
i the necessity of implicit obedience; this was
. right; and upon no othCr terms would our ;
| connection as tutor and pupils be cither proli- j
; tabic or happy. , .

going disciplinary process, the mother, I as. j
| ccrtained left the hall. On my passing
, through the sittingroom below, on my way
! to my lodgings, she was sitting on the sofa,
j with some friends who had called to sec her.
j She returned my usual bow, as I then thought
with some formality; but, as I was not cer- '
tain, thai the difference was not to be as.
cribed to the presence of company, and after
all not certain, that there was any essential j
difference, I dismissed the circumstance, as
far as practicable. My feelings, however
were not comfortable; for although one has
a right to the enjoyment of some satisfaction, J
in view of a duty performed yet who is ig.
norant, that it adds to that enjoyment to
know that the persons connected with us arc
themselves satisfied ? 1
The day following, I was at my post, as
usual, but saw not the mother, until, on retiring
for the afternoon, I observed her in the
sitting room, and alone. Just as I was passing
out, she addressed mef and asked me to
be seated; immediately upon which she ob0prvc<l
i' "You had some difficulty yesterday, with
the children ?
My heart fluttered, but I repiied, "I had,
indeed, madam; but I hope ? , if I
could? "
She s*w*my emharrassment, and anticipating
\ivhat I would have said, observed :
"If you continue to manage as discreetly
. as you did yi^terday.; ou :nuy rest assured '
>f my confidence and approbation."
The bow of promise," amid the darkness a
?f midnight, could scarcely have been more \i
inexnected; and, surely, never was voice
>f kindness more welcome. I expressed
ny pleasure and gratitude, and intimated
vhat a relief it would have been during the ,
rial, had 1 known her views. j
It was well, she said, that I did not know,) ?
ind even better,ns I had an opportunity of
levcloping, more to her satisfaction, mv s
>kili at managing a difficult case, than I ?
diould otherwise have had. She said, that J1
or some time, she was fearful, lest my courlge
would fail, and in that case she had de.
lerroined to come to my support; but it gave a
her great pleasure to know that her inter. ?
ference was not necessary. These assurances
were followed by an account of the I
" " <* i.:i t
JilTercnt tempers and dispositions 01 nor chu[Iren,
so minute and satisfactory, to show
that the fondness of the mother had not do?ed
her eyes to the imperfections of Jier chil- ^
Jrcn. She concluded, by wishing me to .
persevere in the mild, but decisive discipline J
which I had adopMI, and this, added to her ; |
own counsels, and with the blessing of God,
would make her children what she could J
wish. Tims strengthened and encouraged '
I went on my way rejoicing, and ere a
month had elapsed my pupils were as obedient,
and wcu-behaved, as I could wish.
They were often my attendants*during a delightful
walk, playfully contendingVith each
other for'a skirt of my coat; and, in more
instances than one, the tailor's needle and
thread were necessary to save my Tappets
from being wholly detached. '

place not only rejoice much to see the things
happened, in these days, but also feel'
desirous to love God more than formerly, to
love others, and to labour for their souls.
We praise the Lord as he is the author of
such feelings in us. Among those that feel
for their souls, some cheerfully say, that
they have greater happiness of mind, and j
others feel happy when they think that j
they have given up themselves to the Lord; >
but from what they show by their conduct, j
it appears that they don't know what true

Charleston, April 12, 1830. <
Mr. Editor.?I herein send you a re. |
ceipt for curing the cholic in horses. If \
you think it worthy a place in your journal, ,
you will perhaps conler a service on some ,
of your readers, by giving it publicity. ]
A few weeks ago, I was travelling into |
the country. Before I had progressed j
many miles, my horse showcu evidently ,
that he was labouring under cholie. lie J- j
became quite loose in the bowds, swelled,
and was in great agony. Fortunately I {
met with a wagoner, whose kindness relieved
my beast from his illness, and myself
from, perhaps, a long walk. His remedy
consisted in tying upon the .horse's bit, a ^
piece of tobacco. This . being done, he j
told me I could proceed upon my journey ;
assured me, that the horse would get well (
before I got one mile, and that he *ould j
not be tjoubled again, while the tooacco
remained on the bit. I did as he directed
and to my perfect astonishment, iny horse
became relieved as sopn as he swallowed
the saliva created from the tobacco.

We think our correspondent must be (
somewhat mistaken, as to the effects of the 1
tobacco. We are of opinion, that the 1

must be used. In violent stages of cholic, J
ac have seen tobacco tea given with ex- (
cellent effect. (
We have heard of many receipts for tin's (
disease, with which horses are so frequently
plagued; but we venture to assert, that '
none will he found more simple and sure, 1
than the following. J
Take of laudanum 0- or 7 table spoons I
full?of mustard the larger portion of a <
bottle?mix these in a pint of whiskey, or s
water, and give the mixture in a horn or I
bottle to the horse. We have seen this '
Jose applied to horses which were so lar |
^onc with cholic, as to be perfectly cold and i
stiff. In one instance, when the horse 1
could not swallow, the mixture was ad- <
ministered with an injection pipe, and the > i
horse recovered iu an hour afterwards.

From the Gencsflco Farmer.
A Lover of Good Bacon, in number ten
f the Gencssee Farmer, wishes to know the
iest method of smoking. He has well
uspected that his brick smoke-house is- too
lose, and his experiments in making holes
11 the door were an aim at the right thing,
?ut the ventilation was by no means stificont.
A brick smoke-house is not well
idapted to the purpose; many persons have
jone to an extra expense to erect such a
juildincr, which finally does not answer the
)urposc. Mine is formed with a cellar 2
bet deep, walled with rough stones, and
he earth raised against the outside to the
op of the wall. On this stands a building
i feet square, boarded in the manner of a

ointed or battened. This affords about the
proper ventilation?the meat dries, and
smokes in fine order. The best article for
producing smoke is sound maple wood well
seasoned; with this a slow and constant
lire may be maintained, besides giving the
meat a better flavor than most other wood.

From the Tcmp3ranco Star.
I know a man not forty miles front Richmond,
that was named as an example for
the young men of his neighbourhood to
follow. At length his parents died, and
he became a moderate drinker. I was
with him frequently, and thought him a
steady young man. Wheu he was about
(Kmo vp.in of' nrro. he married a
l?L'lll^-UH j ? - p-, _
young lady '>f respectable family, and considerable!
propety; he, from the moderate
use of ardent spirit, became a drunked of
the lower class, spent a large estate, and
rendered his wife and children poor and
miserable. I do not think his credit Would
be good for a pint of rum, and all because
he was a moderate drinker. Let me exhort
ill persons who are moderate drinkers,
whether christians or not, to total abstinence,
for no man ever intended at first to
ne a drunkard. If you think the above
worth a place in the Star, you can insert
it over. II.

clrunkness, he found a dog had eat all the
leaf fat from the hog. He swore he would
kill the dog, so he got his gun and waited
for the dog to come; at lentgh he heard a
noise in the brush that was on his greens;
be calied his wife, and swore he was coming?he

to induce her to move from her painful

upon addressing what he considered the
master-passion in all female bosoms. He
dressed himself in the gayest manner, and

prepare for the ceremony, and she was
carried in a chair to the garden, where j J
tho bridal feast was spread; nearly all the c

This being the very question that the
commissary was not prepared to answer,
he hesitated for a short time, and then
stammered out some well worn excuse.?
Picton was not however, to be cajoled
by excuses, while his men were kept with
empty stomachs; he led the alarmed commissary
to the door, and pointing, said,
