Editors : If our young folks would like to know bow thc course of* true love ran in the days of Horace, let them attend to the following free translation of one of his odes : HORACE. While thy heart found rest in no other love but mine, And other arms could not thy snowy neck entwine ; Not Persia's King with regal store, Could boast a life so bright with pleasure's glow. LYDIA. While thy heart with no other passion burned, And Lydia's love was not for Cloe's spurned: Not Ilia, with her Roman name, Could boast a life so full of fame. HORACE. Thracian Cloe now fills my soul with fire, The queen of grace and mistress of the lyre ; For whom, to die would be but pleasure. To save to earth so rich a treasure. LYDIA. Calais, Thurine Onytus' son, Has now my heart's responsive passion won, For whom 'twere cheap two lives to lose To save his soul from death's repose. HORACE. What 1 if our old love should come again, And bind our souls with its brazen chain ; If golden-tressed Cloe should leave my heart, And forgotten Lydia its former joys impart? LYDIA. Though co star like Calais' beauty shine, And turbulent Adriatic shew no wrath like thine. Yet, 'twere sweet with thee to tread life's way ; And sweet with thee lo close its day. NEMO. A VAGABOND LIFE. THE SON OF AN ENGLISH GENTLEMAN A WANDERING SAILOR. An Eton Scholar who Buns Away to Sea, "Works in a Silver Mine and rind? his "Father Dying cn a Battlefield. [From the Philadelphia Press, Nov. 24.] Leaning against one of the cotton bales stacked on Christian-street wharf yesterday afternoon, was a tall, powerfully built man, about 40 years of ago, dressed in a rough blue suit, rather the worse for wear Around his neck a faded silk handkerchief was loosely kuotted, and a wide Lr.immed felt hat was carelessly pushed far back on his head. Al? though his complexion was deeply bronzed, his face would have been considered very handsome but for an ugly 6car extending frnrn thc right ) temple across thc bridge of the nose nearly to the end of the left cheek, fie was clean-shaven, with the excep? tion of the tipper lip, upon which flourished a long tawny moustache. He appeared to be gazing wistfully at the men loading one of thc ocean steamers, and from time to time stroked his chin with a hand, sun? burnt, like his face, and somewhat begrimed, but small and shaped as delicately as that of a woman. "Ile says he's au Englishman," said a Custom House Officer to -a Press reporter who happened to be on the wharf, making some inquiries, "He has been leaning against that bale for these two hours and more. I expect he's hard pushed, as he iias been trying the captains of two of tho steamers for leave to work his pas? sage to Liverpool. AU the holes appear to have pegs, however. He looks a decent sort of fellow, too." The reporter accosted the stranger with a few remarks which were readily and cheerfully respouded to, and presently the news mau and his fresh acquaintance were seated op? posite to each other in a neighboring tavern discussing a concoction called by the ungodly whisky punch, and chatting as pleasantly together as though they had known each other for years. A COSMOPOLITAN'S CAREER. Yon are right," said the stranger, "I am b\7 birth an Englishman: but for twenty-five years and more I have been an inhabitant of so many climes and cities that I have almost forgot? ten my nationality. My name-well, at present, I call myself Wilson. Were I in funds I would add captain to it or colonel, for 1 have earned the right to both titles by sea and by land. However,.. I do not at this moment possess even the traditionary last cent, so I drop all handles and re? main, yours truly," lifting his glass to his lips, "Jack Wilson. Why am I here '? Well, for the life of me 1 don't know. I came herc in a coaster from Baltimore the night before last. I had a grip-sack then with a few things in it and $20 in my pocket, but I got drunk in a saloon some? where about this bit of river beach, .and when 1 awoke this morning my bag was gone and so was my money." "Did you speak to the police ?" "Not I. 1 broke the rum-seller's head with one of Iiis own whisky bottles, smashed the greater number j of the glasses under his counter and i walked outside to cool oft'a little and j wandered on to where you saw mc ! standing. ? should say by your ' darned inquisitiveness 3'ou're a writer j for the newspapers ; now, if you'll j stand a meal and give me sufficient j to pay my fare to Now York, I will j tell you the story of my vagabond j wanderings, and I won't swell your I head either. Agreed? Very well, I now let mc wet my whistle and I'll ? begin. I "At thc time I came into the world j my father was a wealthy Devonshire I nquire in England, il? dill md tlu-n i reside in tuc country, Jor l?e luid a ; commission in oin; ur tin- household 1 regiments, and therefore rented a mansion in a fashionable quarter of London, und lived in thc style befit? ting: a man of means and fa mil v. In my ninth year I liad tue misfortune lose ni}' mother, shortly after which event my father sold out ol the anny, gave up his town house; and went abroad, having previously made ar? rangements for sending me to ivton. There 1 remained for five years, spen? ding my holidays at the pince in Devonshire, my only freud being the steward who bad been left in charge. Ile had been an old sailor in his time, and 60 fired my youthful fancies with the stones he told me of the soa tba determined to run away to Lon cl and ship on board some vessel, was a hardy lad, fond of every ki of sport, but with a strong distaste study. I had no relatives who seem to take any interest in me, a fact, a discovered in after years, which u entirely oiving to my father, who v. at that time wasting Iiis substance every species of debauchery on t continent. HE RCXS AWAY TO SEA. "My plans were early laid, started for school with fen brig sovereigns in my pocket, my qu; telly allowance. Eton, as you leno is close to London. I changed cs at a junction, and pr?*s?'?i!y foi; myself in the midst ot the groat cit I asked my way to the docke, ai clambered on board a huge barq that a man told me would sail th day for South Amcrcia I inquir? for the captain, and was shown in his cabin. J shall never forget 1. look of suprise when 1 asked him he wanted a boy. 1 was dressed the fine attire of a young Etonian, ring was on my finger. I certain did not look thc sort of boy to aspi to the humbie positiou of ship's mo I key and so the captain evident thought. He asked me if I w; serious. I replied that my greate wish was to go to sea. 'It perhaj will not bc an unkind act to cure yr of that feeling/ he said, with a sini ter look that half frightened m 'You can stay on boanl, boy.' Refoi the twiiiiglit liad settled on the rivi we were many miles down the Tham< I on our way to 6ea. Very litt notice was taken of me until we g< ? into the channel, when I was arouse from my sensations of enjoyment, ft I was not in tho least sick, by tl. captain shouting to me. 'Con here, you young land lubber, an turn to. If you imagine you're passenger on board this'ere sh; you'll soon discover your mistake I was not long in making the di cover}' that the commander of th good ship Nelsen was as big a bruf as I had ever heard of even in til romances I had read at school. Th miseries iniicted on me during th* long voyage I have never forgot ter I was half starved and cruelly beater deprived of my sleep, and robbed b the sailors of my clothes and jewelry However, the voyage came to cud a last, and on arriving at Rio de Jatu iro, 1 managed to slip off the vess( and owning to thc kindness of som negroes, I remained hidden on sher until the Nelson sailed again, stayed for two or three months wit ! my black friends; they lived on th outskirts of the city, and while wit; them, I employed myself by makin; lariats, which I sold on the streets o Rio I became quite expert in lass making and sold a number, so I seoi had a few dollars saved. These enc bled me to purchase one or two ne cessities. I next fell in with a plan ter, who offered me a positiou a assistant overseer on his plantation a Pernambuco, which ? gladly accept ed. I had a pleasant time for th year and a half that followed, and bc came the best of friends with m; master, but the wandering fever wa strong in me. I was now wei! dress? ed, a perfect horseman and a goot shot, and I had a comfoitable suppl; of 'shiner*,'" so I determined to seo ; little life in Mexico, my resolve bein? somewhat hardened by the coldues of thc planter's daughter with whoa I was deeply in love. I obtained ; passage on board a schooner to As pin wail, and continued thc journey ti Panama on a pack mule, in company with several other mon whose des tination was the same as mine-Mex ico and silver. S1LVEP.-.M1XIXG AXD BLOCIUDE-RUXXIXG. "At Panama I shipped on atothc vessel for Maxatlan, and there joinei a second mule caravan, which eventu t ual ly brought me to AI om us, au an cient ruined town of old Mexico, rc christened by the Spaniards, when I purchased a smalt snare in a sil vc: mine, and set to work. The gan: with whom my lot was now cast was made up of adventurers from all ovet the world. Thc nights were pass?e in the wildest debauchery, and frc quently the whole of severa! days hard toil was lost in one stake al cards. In addition, we had to be on the constant alert against the attacks of Apache Indians, with whom we were in contiguous war. One way or another, i made a good deal ol money, and I began to have dreams I of ?eturning to England a rich man. i I was now in my twenty-first year and as big a man as I am uow. One ! day we heard that war had been do i dared between the Souther- uuU Northern Slates ol America, and that fortunes were being realized by blockade-running. In company with three other men, ? traveled night and day until I arrived in Charleston where I purchased a share in a steam? er and her cargo of cotton bales.

"lily feeling in those days were en tirely with the Southern cause : be sides I attributed, ruy loss of property to the North, so 1 determined to get to thc South and enlist. After a wea? ry tramp for two months, during j which I was several times arrested I for a spy, I managed to get into thc Confederate lines in Carolina, and I had no difficulty in finding a Colonel of irregular cavalry willing to take me as a trooper. I passed th io ugh many battles of the war without a scratch until the action at Mansfield, Texas, was fought. General Banks commanded the Union forces, and Kirby Smith was our General. I com ! manded my troops in this battle and j received thc wound you notice on my face. My horse was shot and 1 was slashed with a sabre and felled to the ground. It was some hours before I recovered consciousness, and I found that my wound had stop? ped bleeding. 1 was very weak and exhausted, and only a hearty consti- i j tution like mine could have existed : ? after losing so much blood. Lying j by the side of me was a man in the! uniform of a Federal officer who was i groaning piteously with pain. I turn-j ed toward him and found that a bayo-1 net had pierced his stomach and j breast in several places. I raised his ! face toward me, judge of my horror and surprise in recognizing my father. ? whispered in his car and a faint gleam of pleasure crossed his face as : he heard my voice. I crawled to? ward some of the dead, and stripped i them of their coats which I placed ! around the dying form of my fatiicr. j , On one body I found a flask of bran- | dy with which I moistened his lips. | lu a few sentences he told mc that he j thought I had been drowned, that all ? his property had been lost and that ! j he was an officer on the staff of Gen- j feral Banks. I begged him not to speak further. Ile desisted, but mo-1 tioned to me to open the breast of his coat, where I lound a bundle of letters. I put them in my pocket, and in a few minutes my father breath? ed his last in my arms. I looked in vain for some human aid. Around me were hundreds of the dead and dying, j but I was afraid if I left my father's body I should not be able to find it again. Night came on, and my wound began to bleed afresh, and I once more became unconscious. Weeks passed away before I recovered my j reason, and then I found myself in a j military hospital. I liad had brain fe-; i vcr, btu my wound had healed during ! my insensible condition. ? ?vas once again a prisoner of war, however, and as soon as I was well enough to travel I was sent with others to the North, and this time I found myself in du? rance ville at Fort Delaware, where I remained until the end of the war. SERVING A3 A WHALER. "The rest of my life I will tell you \n a few words. Among the papers j my father had given me were vouch? ers for three hundred pounds in a bank at Halifax, N. S. I went there and, with some difficulty, established my claim and received the .money. I then obtained the position of mate on board a whaler and I have followed the sea. in various capacities, 'ever since. Fortune, however, I appears to have deserted me. I have p never been able to save any partier*. | lar sum of money.

"The worst oversight of my younger days was that somebody did not in? struct me to take caro of my teeth. : At-oO years of age 1 have but eight j natural teeth left, and' I could well j afford to pay evo:: ?2,000 apiece to'! get back half a dozen or more that I \ needlessly lost/'7 In explanation he i put it in this way: -Artificial teeth j are at a best a very poor substitute, j I am in a large business that needs a = goori deal of strength of body andi mind. All strength conies from good ! food weil digested. But perfect'j digestion only takes place when food j is thoroughly masticated (chewed) j and mixed with the saliva, and good, j firm, natural tcetli are essential for tin's. So, if I had better teeth 1 could do a great deal more of profitable business, and earn additional money ! enough to pay a great price for sev- ' eral of them.,J This is worth thinking of by the young. Here are some good rutes: 1st. Never crack nuts with the teeth, or bite very hard substances; it breaks or cracks the enamel and hastens decay.-2d- Always brush thc teeth before going to bed, if not in the morning also, and use a wooden or quill tooth-pick (not pins or other metal), to remove any food from be? tween the teeth. If left lhere overnight it ferments and injures the teeth. Use only a moderately stiff tooth-brush; a very stiff one injures the gums, and promotes decay. 3d. Do not use any of the "boughten" tooth-powders, unless it,' be finely powdered orris root. Thc most active tooth-powders, which whiten the teeth quickly, contain in? jurious acids or alkalies. Charcoal; however line, is not good; it has the "grit7' and wear of diamond dust.-? 4th. If the slightest decay begins on any tooth, have a reliable, skillful dentist plug it firmly at once. It will be one of the best possible invest? ments of a small sum for the future. American Agriculturist for Decem? ber. Keep a Bottle of Lime Water. If good milk disagrees with a child or grown person, lime water at the rate of 3 or 4 tablespoonfuls to tho pint, mixed with the milk or taken after it, will usually help digestion and prevent flatu? lence.

Lead Pencil Manufacture; 33; P. Clark is employing about teri1 hands and making about 4',?0? lead' pencils a day. He buy's his cedar in Florida, and it is received here in slabs' of pencil length, of two thicknessses".' one for the lead to go in, and the other to cover over it, a's you will see by' examining the end of any lead' pencil. Four little groves are sawed in the' thic^r slabs, for the leads which are kept in hot glae and taken out one by one and inserted *n the eroves. Then" the thin slab is glued to the leaded slab;* and thus united they are run through a melding machine, four pencils coming^ from each slabl After the ends are rasped by an invention of Mr. Clark,; the pencils are ran between grooved4 wheels, at considerable pressure, for the only finish they get. This bur-" nisbes them, and' they are then' tied in dozens and boxed for sale, mostly in1, plain woods, and of three degrees of hardness. Ticonderoga graphite is used. It comes in a fine black powder, and is* mixed with German white clay, about' half and half, and then ground with' moisture, forming a paste. This ia* pressed in dies into lengths of four leads, which are cut and then baked at enormous temperature. The pencils' sell at 85 cents, ?1.50 and ?2 a gross,' and they are good pencils, writing smoothly and evenly. 3Ir. Clark says' he makes 100 per cent, selling the pencils at S5 cents a gross, and the re? tailers made a good thing selling them at a cent a piece, The graphite costs 25 cents a pound and the clay little' more than the freight, and the more: clay used in tlx leads, the barder they# will be.
