Old Time and young Love,one morning in May Chanced to meet by a river in halcyon weather •And agreeing, for once ('tis a fable, you'll say), In the same little boat made a voyage together, Strong, steady and patient, Time pulled at his oar, And swift o'er the waters the voyagers go ; But Love—who was thinking of Pleasure on shore— Complained that his boatman was wretchedly slow. But Time, the old sailor, expert at his trade, And knowing the leagues that remained to be done, Content with the regular speed that he made, Tugged away at his oar and kept steadily on, Love, always impatient of doubt or delay, Now sighed for the aid of the favoring gales, And scolded at Time in the sauciest way, For not having furnished the shallop with sails. But Time, as serene as a calendar saint, (Whatever the graybeftrd was thinking upon), All deaf to the voice of the yonker's complaint, Tugged away at his oar and kept steadily on. Love, vexed at the heart, only clamored the more; And cried"By the gods! in what country or clime Was ever a lubber who handled the oar In so lazy a fashion as old Frther Time ?" But Time only smiled in a cynical way, ('Tis often the way with your elderly Don) And one who knows more than he cares to display— And still at his oar pulled steadily on. Grown calmer, at last the exuberant boy Enlivens the minutes with snatches of rhyme The voyage at length, he begins to enjoy, And soon has forgotten the presence of Time. But Time, the severe, egotistical elf, Since the day that his travels he entored upon, Has ne'er for a moment forgotten hiin>elf, But tugs at his oar and keeps steadily on. Awaking once more, Love sees with a sigh That the river of Life will be presently passed, And now he breaks forth with a piteous cry, "U Time, gentle Time! your are rowing too fast!" But Time, well knowing that Love will bo dead, Dead -dead! in the boat!—ere the voyage is done; Only give him an ominous shake of the head, /•Chile he tugs at his oar and keeps steadily on! 'Ti3 True that Fate's Unsparing Hand. BY W. HOWARD PEKRJGO. 'Tis true that fate's unsparing hand May doom the hopes to blight That in the happy days of yore Twined round the heart all bright; 'Tis true that time may deeply trace Its lines upon the brow, Bleach the once raven locks to white, And bid the form to bow ; But, oh, the heart can ne'er grow old, No changes can it know, It tlirobbeth still with love as warm As in the long ago. The fame we courted in our yonth May loose its quickening spell, The laurel wreath may lose its power To cause the heart to swell; Each sunny dream, each oherished hope, May fade before time's dart But vain is time, with all its blight, To change the loving heart; For the heart that once has tnily loved, /Fill love when life is o'er And with affection still more pure Love on a brighter shore. of of Itf Marriage in High Life, and one that beats that of Senator Sprague and Miss Kate Chase, higher than a kite. On Christmas Eve, the beautiful princess, daughter of the celebrated chief of the Nez Perces, Lawyer, was led to the hynienial altar, clothed in blushes of modesty and superbly worked leg gings, all covered with precious gems or other kinds of beads. The happy bridegroom is a nephew of the well known Tree-Fathers, a sub-chief of the royal nation. Many a white man felt a chill at the heart at seeing this beautiful and royal damsel led to the altar, to become the loved bride of one of the bravest of the brave. We cannot give an accurate description of the splendid dress worn on the occasion by the princess. Suffice it to say. that the leggings, were of brilliant hue; her shawl of matchless figure and value, and more—she wore no hoops—but allowed her own development of form to fill the outlines where others less perfect have to depend on hoops and cotton Her petticoats and tunic set very gracefully, and over her shoulders waved the beautiful locks of hair which graced her head. Of the groom we can only say he was dressed with taste, and, all in all, this was one of the most superb affairs ever seen, and as they retired to their soft coRch of costly furs, we had to leave and consequently can only say they each had an armful of joy. —Lewiston Age.

Pan, the god who presided over the country, was, acccording to the most ancient account, the son of Mercury by an Arcadian nymnh] the daughter of Dryops. Others say, that as Penelope, who was afterwards married to Ulysses, was tending, in her youth, her fath er s flocks on Mount Taygetus, Mercury, tak ing the form of a goat, gained her love, and she became the mother of this ged of herds men. Pan had goat's feet and a shaggy akin : he had also goat's horns, with a wrinkled face, a matted beard and a flat nose. It is said that when lie was born, the nurse on beholding him fled away in affright; but Mercury, wrap ping him up in a hare-skin, carried 'him to Olympus, where all the gods were delighted with him. Deficient as he was in beauty, Pan was not without his love-adventures. He gained the affection of Selena, the beautiful goddess of the night, under the form of a white ram. Another of his loves was his nymph Echo, whose adventure with Narcissus shall present ly be narrated. The nymph Pitys also listen ed to his love; and Boreas, the god of the north wind, who was his rival, blew the nymph down from a rock and killed her. Pan' una ble to save, changed her into a Pine-tree—in Greek, Pitys. As the nymph Syrinx was one day return ing irom the chase, she passed by Mount Lyceum. Pan happening to see her, fell in love with her. The nymph fled from him; he pursued her till she found her course impeded by the river Ladon. She implored the aid of her 6ister-nymphs; and when Pan thought to seize her, he found his arms filled with reeds into which she had been changed. He stood sighing at his disappointment, when the wind agitating the reeds, they made a low musical sound. Pan. taking the hint, cut seven of them, from which he made the in strument ealled Syrinx, or Pandean pipes. Pan was author of what are called Panic terrors. In this way he aided the Athenians at Marathon, and terrified the Gauls when they were approaching to plunder the temple of Delphi. Arcadia was the country in which Pan was most honored. Silenus, a rural deity, was said to be the foster-father of Bacchus, whom he usually ac companied, riding on a broad-backed ass. He was generally intoxicated, and was rarely seen without his can (cantharus) in his hand. Silenus was noted for his wisdom. We find him in Virgil lecturing very learnedly on the origin of the world. One of his sayings has been preserved. Being asked, we' are told, what was best for man,—after musing some time, he replied, " It is best never to be born f next to that, to die quickly." Some Phrygian shepherds once found Sile nus in one of his drunken fits, and brought him to king Midas, who kept him for ten days, and then restored him to Bacchus. The god desired Midas to ask a reward : the king, like many other fools, thinking there was nothing like money, requested that whatever he touched might be turned to gold. The gift was bestowed. Midas laid his hand on a stone, it became a mass of gold ; he toushed the ears of corn, they waved in goldeu lustre; he washed his hands, the water became like the shower of gold in which Jupiter descend ed into the bosom of Danae. Midas was in raptures. But Midas sat down to eat, and his teeth could not penetrate the golden bread : fish, flesh, and fowl,—all was gold. He mingled some wine and water, it became pure aurum potabile, and would not discharge the vulgar office of quenching the thirst. In despair, he turned him to the god, acknowl edging his error, and prayed to be relieved from the ruinous gift. Bacchus took pity, and directed him to bathe in the river Paetolus. He bathed, and lost the power of making gold : the river began to roll over golden sands. '1 he Satyrs were another part of the reti nue of Bacchus. They were conceived to be bald, with short horns like those of kids, and goat-footed. They were of a lively frolicsome disposition. Priapus was the god who presided over gardens. He was said to be the son of Bac chus and Venus. Lampascus, on the Helles pont, was the chief seat of his worship. He usually bore a sickle and a horn of plenty. The Thin Partition between Life and Death. —When we wuU near the powerful machinery we know that one single mis-step and those mighty engines would tear us to ribbons with their flying wheels, or grind us to powder in their monstrous jaws. So, when we are thundering across the land in the rail car, and there is nothing but a half an inch of iron flange to hold us upon the track. So, when we are at sea in a ship, and there is nothing but a plank between us and eternity. We imagine we see how close we are to the edge of a precipice. But we do not see it.— Whether on the sea or on the land the parti tion which divides us from eternity is some thing thinner than an oak plank or half an inch of iron flange. The machinery of life and death are within us. The issues that hold these beating powers in their places are often not thicker than a sheet of paper, and if that partition were pierced or ruptured it would be just the same with us if a cannon-ball had struck us. Death is inseparably bound up with life in the very structure of onr bodies. Struggle as he will to widen the space, no man can at any time go further from death than 1 the thickness of a sheet of paper.

Mr. Editor, The name of our county and mines is pro nounced and written id various ways; but of course there is but fine correct way. The proper manner of spilling- is Boi-se', with an accent mark over t6e e, being divided into two syllables and pronounced as if written Boy-zay, the accenfbeing on the last syllable. It is a French adjjkive, signifying woody, or wooded. Lots is tie French noun for Wood, forms the adjective Boise*, the noun following, is oft the adjective: hence, in here, (Woody River,) it ia just as correct tofwrite Riviere de Boise, (Riv er of Wofed.) the old maps have it written Boise. \$e should continue to spell and pro nounce it as in French, and thereby preserve the true signification of the word. M. and by adding e' In French, de, wi( en uged instead stead of Boise Health Hints. —The following article from Dr. Hall's Journal of Health, contains practical hints on various subjects that are worthy attention: 1. It is unwise to change to cooler clothing except when you first get up in the morning. 2. Never ride with your arm or elbow out side any vehicle. 3. The man who attempts to alight from a steam-car while in motion, is a fool. 4. In stepping from any wheeled vehicle while in motion, let it be from the rear, and not in front of the wheels; for then, if you fall the wheels cannot run over you. 5. Never attempt to cross a road or street in a hurry, in front of a passing vehicle ; for if you should stumble or slip, you will be run over. Make up the half minute lost by wait ing until the vehicle has passed, by increased diligence in some other direction. 6. It is miserable economy to save time by jobbing yourself of necessary sleep. 7. If you find yourself inclined to wake up at a regular hour of the night and remain awake, you can break up the habit in three days, by getting up as soon as you wake, and not going to sleep again until your usual hour for retiring ; or retire two hours later and rise two hours earlier for three days in succession —not sleeping a moment in the day-time. 8. If infants and young children are in clined to be wakeful in the night, or very ear ly in the morning, put them to bed later ; and besides, arrange that their day nap shall be in the forenoon. be 9. " Order is heaven's first law;" regulari ty is nature's great rule; hence regularity in eating, sleeping, and exercise, has a very large share in securing a long and healthful 'life. 10. If you are caught iu a drenching rain, or fall in the water, by all means keep in motion sufficiently vigorous to prevent the slightest chilly sensation until you reach the house; then change your clothing with great rapidity before a blaziDg fire, and drink in stantly a pint of some hot liquid. 11. To allow clothing to dry upon you, un less by keeping vigorous exercise until thor oughly dried, is suicidal. 12. If you are conscious of being in a pas sion, keep your mouth shut, for words in crease it. Many a person has dropped dead n a rage. 13. If a person "faints," place him on his back and let him alone; he wants arterial blood to the head; and it is easier tor the heart to throw it there in a horizontal line than perpendicularly. 14. If you want to get instantly rid of a beastly surfeit, put your finger down your throat until tree vomitiBg ensues, and eat nothing for ten hours. 15. Feel a notle pride in living within your means, then you will not be hustled off to a cheerless hospital in your last sickness. Benefit of Eemale Society. —It is better for you to pass an evening once or twioe in a lady's drawing-room, even though the long conversation be slow, and you know the son^s by heart, than in a club, tavern or pit of°a theater. All amusements of youth to which virtuous women are not admitted, are delete rious in their nature. All men who avoid fe male society have dull perceptions, and are stupid, or have gross tastes and revolt againBt what is pure. Your club swaggerers, who are sucking billiard cues all night, declare fe male society insipid. Poetry is ir.sipid to a yokel; beauty has no charms for a blind man ; music does not please a poor beast who does not know one tune from another; and aB a true epicure is never tired of water sanchy and brown bread and butter, I protest I caa sit for a whole night talking to a well regula ted, kindly woman, about her girl coming out or her boy at school, and like the evening's entermainment. One of (he greatest benefits a man may derive from woman's society is, that he is bound to be respectful to them. The habit is of good to your moral men, de pend upon it. Our education makes us the most eminently selfish men in the world. We fight for ourselves, we perish for ourselves, we yawn for ourselves, we light our pipes, and say we go out, we prefer ourselves and our ease and the greatest good that comes to man from a woman's so ciety is, that he has to think of somebody besides himself—somebody to whom he is bound to be constantly attentive and respect ul.
