From a Philadel phia paper of last week we copy tho fol lowing, which we think we once met with in some work we were reading. Wheth er it is original in our contemporary or not, it is well worthy of being copied in mora senses than one: "A Bit or Advice. .Have you ene mies? Go straight on and don't mind them. U they get in your way, walk aronn-1 them, regardless of their spite. A man tint hasno enemies is seldom good for anything he is made of that kind of material which is so easily worked that everybody has a hand in it. A sterling character one who thinks for himself, & iid speaks what he thinks, is always sure to have enemies. They are as necessary to him as fresh air they keep him alive and active. A celebrated character, who was surrounded by enemies, used to re mark: 'They are sparks which, il'youdo not blow, will go out themselves.' Lot this be your feeling, while endeavoring to live down the scandal of those who are bitter against you. If you stop to dis pute, you do but as they desire, and open the way for more abuse. Let the poor fellow talk there will be n recreation, if you perform but your duty, and hun dreds who were once alienated from you, will flock to you and acknowledge their error."

A Stfum Wagon. A stock company has been formed of persons residing in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, who have constructed a steam wagon, to be run on common roads. It was tested a few nights since, and travelled to the entire satisfac tion of those who got it up. A Good Remedy. The local of the Lynchburg Virginian publishes tho fol lowing, and says he has tried it and found it to be a good remedy: To cure a pain in the breast, procure a well made silk or woolen dress with an equally well constructed woman inside of it and press close to the part affected. Repeat the application till the pain ceas es. This recipe, when the directions are carefully observed, has rarely been known to fail in elTectinea cure. The medicine it found in almost every household. A lady walked off a steamboat at Nor wich last Friday night into deep water, where she remained for hal f an hour buoy ad up by her balloon-like hoops, and was finally extracted. "You can do anything if you have pa tience," said an old uncle, who had made fortune, to a nephew who had nearly pent one. "Water may bo carried in a eieva, if you can only wait."

There was even more wisdom in tho farmer's snoech than he supposed. It is not horses only that suffer for the want of sunshine. Thousands of persons living in cities injure their health because of the want of sunshine. The over worked operative, who is confined all day in a dark, ill-ventilated room, owes not a lit tie of his fondness for a drain to tho ab sence of the lisiht, joyous, exhilerating sunshine. Tho pale sickly chill, that by and by is laid in its coffin, amid the sobs of its heart-broken mother, might proba bly have grown up to vigorous manhood if it hail been bred on a breezy, clover decked, sunshiny hillside.

It is not so much the richness of the material as tho way it is made up, and tho mariner in which it is worn, that give the desired elegance. A neat lit, a grace ful bearing, and a proper harmony be twecn the complexion and tho colors, have more to do with hightening female attrac tions than many are willing to believe. Says 0 sensible writer: "Mrrnv a wife LlooL-i prettier, if sho did but know it, in wr neat morning fio-lc of calico, than the incougruous pile of finery vdiich sho dig nifies with the title of full dre'.s. Many an unmarried female first wins the hoart of her futuro husband in some simple, un pretending aitire, which, if consulted about, sho would pronounce too cheap ex cept for ordinary wear; but which, by its accidental suitability to her figure, face, and carriage, idealizes lier youth wonder fully. If the sex would study taste in dress more, and care less far costliness, they would have no reason tt regret it." We wish no readers of ours would ever purchase for themselves another drtx-s, or another ornament, until they have secur ed a supply of these absolutely nccessaiy accessories of economy, health and com-' fort. Our medical institutions all over the country, are filled with women whose constitutions have been ruined, and whose lives and services virtually lost to them selves and their families, and almost wholly from the want of just such a sim ple article of dres3 as this. Sound Si.ket. Any man who can bound out of bed as soon as he wakes of a mid winter's morning is worth something; no fear of his not making his way through the world creditably, because he has the elements of a promptitude, decision and energy, which guarantee success. To in valids we make a comfortable suggestion worth knowing. Ifyou have force of will enough to keep you from taking a second nap end it is the "second nap" which makes its baneful influence felt on multi tudes it is better for you to lie awhile and think about it until that feeling of weariness passes out of the limbs which you so commonly feel. But to sleep soundly, and to feel rested and refreshed when you wake up of a morning, four things are essential: 1. Go to bed with feet thoroughly dry and warm. 2. Take nothing for sunper but some cold bread and butter and a single cup of warm tea of any kind. 3. Avoid over fatigue of body. 4. For the hour preceding bed limo, dis miss every engrossing subject from the mind, and let it be employed about some thing soothing and enlivening in cheerful thankfulness. NI-.VI'.H FOUGHT. They fabted not in dayi of oM, That l')ve neglected soon will pcrisbl Thmughuut all time the truth doth hold, That what we love we ever cherish, For, when tho sun neglects the flower, And the sweet, pearly dews forsaka it, It hams its head, and from that hour, Prays only unto death to lake it, So may I droop, by all above nie, If ever I forget to love thee I Societv of Women. D'Israell speak irrgof tho society of women, says: "I is an acquaintance which, when habitu nl. nxercises a ereat influence over the tone of the mind, even if it doo not pro ilnrfi anv more violent effects. It refines the taste, quickens the perception, ant gives, as it were, a grace and flexibility to lie intellect." Somewhere eUe ihesame writer remarks, that "men are as much stimulated to mental effort by the sympa thy of tho gentle sex. as by the desire of newer and fame. Women are more iiis losed to appreciate worth and int :!U.ct al superiority than i,:eii;or, al 1o.il;, ti are as oltcn captivate;', by the noolc man ifestations of genius as by th fn. ii.i.i- lions of maiiner'i and tho charms of per son."

Tho Supreme Court of Illinois has late ly made nn important decision adverse to tho liability of Railroad Companies for cattle killed on their roads. The con elusions of the Court aro thus stated: "Trepnss vi et nrmis, is not proper form of action for injuries, resulting from the negligence of the servants of o cor poration; trespass on the case is the pro per action, of which Justice of the Peaco has no jurisdiction. Animals wandering upon the track ol an unclosed railroad, ore strictly trespas sers, and the company is not liable for their attraction, except its servants are guilty ol wilful negligence, evincing reck less misconduct. The burden of proof is on the plain tiff, to show negligence. The mere fact that an animal was killed, will not render tne company nnwe. In order to slict, t10 manner in which rnilroad truinsare corducto;!, witnesses acquainted with their Management, must bo examined. N In a previous case the same tribunal is said to have decided, Ukj 0 ''railroad company is not bound to fonCo jla gj. that the cattle wandering upon 'hu' of a railroad are strictly trespassers; anu that the company is not liable, unless its employers aro "guilty of willful or wan ton injury, or of gros negligence evinc ing reckless or willful mismanagement," These decisions setm to us to stand up on the substantial basis of both law and justice, though we are awaro that other courts have held differently. We have never been able to understand why Railroads, objects of general inter est and advocacy while in process of con struction, should become objects of equal ly general warfare so soon as finished. Yet such is their history. Would it not be more just for legislatures and courts to declare, in advance, the building of them a penal offence, than to encourage their construction only to license a gen eral' system of hostilities against them so soon as they arc in operation.

No cake of its kindred No cookie is nigh To stearn on the platter, Or near its mate lie. I'll not leave thee, thou lone ono, To meet u cold lute, Since thy motes are all eaten, Corno lie on my plate, Tiuid kindly I'll butter Thy steaming sides o'er. And think on thy gwetnca When thou art no more. Thus all cake-t must follow, Three times every day, When breakfast is ready They vanish away. When hunger is mighty And sickness has flown, No cake can inhabit The table alone. Do Goou. Thousands of men breathe, move and live pass off the staee of life, and are heard of no more. Why? they do not do a particle of good in this world, and none were blessed by them, none could point to them as the instrument of their redemption; not a word they spoke could be recalled, and they perished; their light went out in darkness, and they were not remembered more than the insect of yesterday. Will you thus live and die, oh man immortal? Live for something. Do good, and leave behind you a monu ment of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy.
