On the distent prairie, Where the heather wild In its quiet beauty, Lived and smiled— Stands a little cottage And the creeping vine, Love around its porch to twine; In that peaceful dwelling was a lovely child With her blue eyes beaming soft and mild. And the wavy ringlets of her flaxen hair, Floating in the summer air. CHORUS. Fair as a lily, joyous and free. Light of that prairie home was she— Every one who knew her, felt the gentle power, Of Rosalie, the Prairie Flower. On the distant prairie When the days were long. Tripping like a fairy, Sweat her song With the sunny blossoms, And the birds at play, Beautiful and bright as they. When the twilight shadows gather in the west, And the voice of nature sunk to rest, Liks a cherub kneeling, seemed the lovely child, With her gentle eyes so mild. Fair as a lily, jovous and free, Ac. But the summer faded, And a chilly blast, O’er that happy cottage f*wept at lart— When the autumn song-birds Woke the dewy morn. Little Prairie Flower was gone ! For the angels whispered, softly in her oar, Child! thy Father calls thee, stay not here; And they gently bore her, robed In spotless white, To their blissful home of light. cuoaus—Finale. Though we shall never look upon Ler more Come with the love and joy she bore; Far away, she’s blooming in a fadeless bower, Sweet Uosalif, the Prairie Flower. How Deacon Brown was Sold. Do< tjr Brown considered himself a pillar of tije Church and chief conserv ator of the public morals, nor was this idea of his altogether a delusion. H« was a strenuous advocate of church dis cipline, and in hi- every day walk pre sented to the world an example of the most rigid piety. Though, perhaps, a trifle Purit iuic and bigoted, lie was yet a man of sternest and most uncompro inising virtue. But as Tom Hood ‘•Ala* for the rarity, Of ChtUtiau charily, L'mler the Sun ! ” The old Deacon had not the least bit of it. Having no faults oi foibles of his own, (at least he thought so, ) that called aloud lor charity, he could not under stand why they shoal form a component part in the natures ot other people. He had passed tlie hey-day oi youth , and had quite forgotten that he was once young With much busiuess and re sponsibility resting on himself, he failed to see bow those with fewer cares could possibly be merry and unconcerned, iudet d, the Deacon witnessed many common human phenomena for which be could assign no other cause than moral depravity, and withal, be bad one weak ness, which very naturally grew out of bis lack of charity. This was a most unbounded credulity as to short com ngs which gossip is daily charging upon some member of the community. So credu lous was the Deacon in one mpect, and so ready to believe in the culpability of another, that be was made the victim of a practical joke ; and though he lived m a village of not over five hundred in habitants, he had been made to believe it contained several gambling dens, and at least two Peter F unk auction shops. He was at one time convinced that a party of Freelovers held meetings in the Town Hal!; bat, before completing the plan for their suppression, they turned out to be a lodge of Know Noth ings. Thus he was often put on the wrong tract, but, unlike Knight Russ Ockstda, M. D., he never quite suc ceeded in “ getting his eye teeth cut.” But it is only the last drive played ofl on him that we design to record. It happened in this wise ; Elder Wisely, pastor of Deacon Brown’s church, was on a tour at the South for the benefit of that clerical dis order, tbe’broochitis. Mrs. Wisely, the ' COLUMBIA, CAL., THURSDAY, second wife of the Klder, was tor some reason left at home. This lady was quite youthful, and had by her gentle qualities won the esteem of the entire parish. During the absence of her worthy husband, Deacon Brown, on go ing to the Post Office one morning, re ceived the following communicationl Podgeville, July 16, 1856. Mr. Brown— Dear Sir : I take the liberty to disclose to you some facts, which have given mo as much pain as they will yourself. I know, beyond all question of doubt, that a stranger very mysteriously made bis appearance last night in the private parlor of Mrs. Wisely He was first seen there about half-past seven o’clock; no one saw him enter the bouse, and up to the present hour this morning he has not been known to depart. I think this new vis itor was expected, and that be is destined to share the affections of Mrs. Wisely The voice of this new comer has been distinctly beard in her room, and she has been overheard to address him in the tenderest and most endearing terms. Yours, truly, (Signed) A Friend or Fidelity. As the Deacon read this epistle, there was a visible tremor in bis hand. He polished bis eye-glasses with a silk hand kerchief, and perused it a second time. But Deacon Brown was not the man to swerve from duty, though it led him where be would not go. In a moment be was resolved. Putting the letter in his bat and buttoning bis coat to the chin, be hastened to his hardware store, and, whispering to a confidential clerk, proceeded to the residence of Mrs. Wisely. He struck his cane very deci dedly on the pave, greeted no one with his usual “ good morning;” but seemed absorbed in the contemplation of a great purpose. Arriving at the scene of his triumph, be stationed bis clerk in front of the bouse, aud giving the bell knob a cautious pull, was soon admitted by the servant girl. The following dia logue then took place ; “Is Mrs Wisely in?” “ Yes, sir ; she’s in bed, sir ” The Deacon then examined bis watch, and muttered “ half-paat seven.” He then asked ; “ how long before Mrs Wisely will rise. niarm ?” “Well, really, sir, I can’t tell; won’t you t ke a seat in the parlor, sir ?’* “ No, thauk you—can’t stay. Did Mrs. Wisely have any company last night ?” “Yes, air, I believe she did, sir; she —she Here the girl blushed, hesitated, and, striving to conceal her embarrassment, showed too plainly that she would evade the true explanation The Deacon in terrupted, as if to relieve her, aud said : “ The company, I suppose, mam, wasayouug gentleman—a stranger to you ?” “ Yes, sir; I believe be is, sir.” “ Is that young gentleman now in the house, mam r” “ To be sure, sir.” “Will you be so kind as to state in what part of the bouse ?” “ He is in Mrs. Wisely’s bed room, sir ” The Deacon’s manner had by this time become greatly excited, and be gasped out: “ Can it be ! can it.he! ” The maid, failing to comprehend the Deacon, enquired: “ Can what be ?” “ Why that young gentleman is this very moment ——” “ But you know, sir, he is a very young and a very little gentleman, too, sir.” “ What do yon mean by bis being a very little gentleman ?” “Why, ain’t you heard, sir, that Mrs. Wisel/ has get a baby , sir —a nice fine boy, weight nine pounds, sir ?” The old gentleman seemed, as the phrase is, perfectly thunder-struck. He was for once in bis life, favored with a lucid interval, and saw f y the light of it that he had been sold. Saying that “ Mrs. Brown would be over in the course of the day,” he took his leave without subjecting the servant girl to a cross examination. The joke got oat in good time, and we fear the Deacon never quite forgave the writer of that anonymous note. He has, however, consented to the “ stranger ” having some share of Mrs. Wisely’s love. Power surrounds us with friends who will tell us only of our merits. It is from our enemies alone that we can learn our defects. Society In California. The population of California, diyiwn together almost in a day, as it wpre, from all parts of the civilized world, is still made up of a mass of disconnected but not discordant elements Our peo pie, thickly strewn though they b nearly all strangers to each oser. Daily and hourly they meet and pa*s. but never commune, except when and so far as business requires. They seldom meet for social intercourse, and when thev do happen to come together for purposes of pleasure, it is rather as a matter of necessity, arising from irre sistible desire for a few hours recreation from long and constant toil ; aud under those circnhjstances, that pleasure is sought only in the excitement, and in a manner calculated to exhibit the lowest and not the highest attributes of our nature. In these occasional gatherings men see nothing in their fellows which excites a desire to extend intercourse with them. They become disgusted, and avoid a more intimate acquaintance; their thoughts again turn inward, and everything become centered in self.— Siena Citizen , Gold. Gold cannot bring youth’s ruddy glow Back to the cheek of fading beauty; It cannot hush the still small voice That hints of long neglected duty. It cannot heal a broken heart. Throbbing with some unburthened sorrow ; For words that wring the soul to-day. Gold cannot bring relief to-morrow.

A Good ord for Crinoline The Philadelphia Bulletin points oit the following advantages resulting fiom the use of crinoline : It frees women from a needless weight of skirts,-it strengthens the system by exposure to cold, and aids manufacturers, stimulates the whale fishery, improves figures, dis plays ankles to a delirous extent in get ting up stairs, and gives editors subjects for articles. All things considered, we see no great reason to grieve over the institution It is not every fashion which developes so much or such varied industry as crinoline. Don’t be Poisoned.— A correspond.- ent of The London Literary Gazette, alluding to the numerous cases of death from accidental poisoning, adds : 1 venture to affirm that there is scarce a cottage in this country that docs not contain an invaluable, certain, immedi ate remedy for such events, nothing more than a dessert spoonful of made mustard mixed in a tumbler of warm water and drank immediately. It acts as an emetic, is always ready, and may be used in any case where one is re quired. But take this simple antidote, and you may be the meaus of saving many a followjcreature from an untimely end. Devils. There are many devils that walk thia world, Devils great and devils small; Devils with tails and devils without, Devils who whisper, devils who shout, Devils who mystify, devils who teach, Devils who pray, and devils who preach ; But the lying devil who takes his perch On the higher seat in the highest church, And makes his religion the means and ends For concealing his guilt and betraying his friends. And affects a devotion his soul abhors, . His morality squaring by statute laws, Is the shabbiest devil of all. Beautiful Picture. —A mother teaching her child to pray, is an object at once the most sublime and tender the imagination can conceive.

They feel that it is useless to try to please. I heir dispositions be come hardened and soured by this care less fretting ; and at last, finding that whether they do well or ill, they are equally found fault with, they relinquish ail efforts to plea.-e, and become heed less of reproaches. A Usefuf. Hint —The difference of rising every morning at six and eight, in the course of forty years, amounts to 20 290 bout/, or three years, one hun dred and twenty-one days and sixteen hours, which are equal to eight hours a day for exactly ten years ; so that rising at six will be the same as if ten years of life were added, wherein we may com mand eight hours every day for the cul tivation of our minds and the dispatch of business. Undoubtedly a Fact. — Boys, if you don’t want to fall in love, be sure and keep away from muslin. You can no more play with girls without losing your hearts, than you can play wiib gamblers without losing your money. The heart-strings of woman, like the tendrills of a vine, are always reaching out for something to cling to. The consequence is, that before you know that you are going you are gone ; like a lot at auction. He ts happv wh«va suite L.w iuuint'r • K 0.-uj suit li: tetnrei io any cu- A String of Pearls.

Yet with scarcely le~s eagerness do they now rush to dring of waters that bring upon them premature old Dge and dis ease, ana loathsome ugliuess. Is spring little Tom lost his wife; Says to soothe his pain ; “Thy wife I trow, has long ere now In Abraham’s bosom lain.” “ His fare forlorn with grief I mourn,” The shrewd dissembler cries : “ For much I tear, by this sad tear. She’ll scratch out Abraham’s eyes.” No one has a right to hiss a public speaker. If he does not like to hear the speech, he ought to leave the audi ence It has been said that there are Vut three animals that hiss—the goose, the viper, and the blackguard. The water that flows from a spring does not cengeal in winter, and those sentiments of friendship which flow from the heart cannot be frozen in adversity. Spake moments are the gold dust of time. Of all the portions of our life, spare moments arc the most truthful in good or evil They are the gaps through which temptations find the easiest ac cess to the soul. ‘ He that holds fast the golden mean, And lives contentedly between The little and the great, Feels not the wants that pinch the poor, Nor plagues that haunt the rich man’s ’cor, Embittering all his state.” A man who has a soul worth sixpence must have enemies. It is utterly im possible for the best men to please the whole world, and the sooner this is un derstood, aud a position taken in view to the fact, the better. Patriotism. The land we from our fathers had in trust, We to our children will transmit, or die; This is our maxim, this our piety; And God and Nature say thd it is just.

There is nothing so delightful, says Plato, as the hearing and speaking of truth.
