A certain College Professor had

John' C. Rive's? in a recently; pub
lished letter,' on the subject of public
printing, has a word of ; suggestion to
writers for the press, and-, of, compli
ment to the "jour." whose duty it . not
unfrcquently is to make sense out of
verv . senseless chiroirranhv.5 None
but a. writer, for the daily press, can
comprehend how much truth there,, is
in the veteran printer's remark. Many
members of Congress, and eke not a
few greater men, must have been sur
prised at the; respectable figure they
cut in print, without . thinking of the
toihome : labor, and the r exercise of
better talent than their 'own, which
had been expended by the "jour."
printer, m licking into shapo the mes
sae, report or speech, furnished by
them.. . Mr. Rives says
W ' A.
"I have seen the manuscript writing
of most great men of the country
during the past twenty years,, and I
think I may say, that no twenty of
them cculd stand the test , of the
scrutiny of one-half of the journey
men printers employed in my office.
"This fact will be vouched by every
editor in the Union. To the poor
"jour." many a "great man" owes his
reputation for scholarship, and were
the humble type-stickers to resolve,
by concert, to set up manuscript m
their hands, for een one little week,
precisely as it is written by the authors,
there would be more reputations slaugh-
i tered than their devils could shake a
stick at in twenty-four hours, "States
men" would become "small by degrees
and beautifully less." Many an ass
would have the lion's hide torn from
his limbs. Men whom the world called
writers," would wake up of mornings
and find themselves famous as mere
pretenders humbugs cheats.
.' lOrXHTG A TEA KETTLE. ,
Which is the most trvins: to a woman
a greenhorn of a servant girl, or a
stove that "won't draw," the very day
she expects company: Mrs. Jones
hired, the other day, a Miss McDermott
just from Cork. Miss McDermott was
ordered to "boil the tea-kettle.:
' "The what?" :
"The tea-kettle." , : : i. . ; - : :
"An do you mane that?"
"Certainlri If I did not I would
not Lave ordered you to do it andbc
quick about it." '1
'.'Yes marm." , i f
Miss McDermott obeyed orders. In
about a, half hour afterwards Mrs.
Jone3 resumed the conversation; ' '
: "Where's the; tea-kettle, 'Bridget?"
"In the dinner pot, marm."
"In the what?" - - -
"In the dinner pot. You told me
to boil it, an I've had a scald on it for
nearly an hour."
Mr. Jones could hear no more. She
had a rush of blood to her head, and
went into a swoon. The last we saw
of her she was being carried in an arm
chair up stairs. : '
In dealing with exotics, you should
speak by the card. Had Mrs. Jones
told Bridget to boil some tea water,
instead of the tea kittle, everything
would have come right. Sam Segue
once ordered a Melesian to go up street
and buy a dollar's worth of "ship stuff."

person would have been, he began to
lament the loss, as he called it, of his
sixty guineas. , His contrivance was,
thereforei how to cheat the oculist; he
pretended he could not see any thing

on his eye "was continued 'a month

LIF2 IS A POWDEE-HiLIi
.Dickens thus describes a visit to the
powder-mill of Hounslow, near London:

voice ever breaks upon5 the. ear, and
where indeed no human form is . seen
except in the isolated house in which

The circumstances of momentary des
the most stringent ana necessary
regulations, have subdued their minds
and their feelings to the condition of
their hire. - There is seldom any ricqd
to enforce . these regulations; : Some
terrific explosion here, or in works .of
a similar kind elsewhere, leaves a fixed
mark in their memories, as act3 as a
constant warning. Here no' shadows
of practical joko of caper of animal
spirits ever transpires, no .witticism,
no chaffing, or slang. '
A laugh 13 never heard, a smile
seldom seen. Even the work is carried
on by the men with as few words as
possible, and these uttered it. a low
tone. . Not that any body fancies that
mere sound will awaken the spirit of
combustion or cause an explosion to
take place, but that, their feelings are
always kept subdued. If one man
wishes to communicate; one thing to
another, or aslc for any thing from Borne
body at a short distance, he must go
there; he is never permitted to shout
or call out. There i3 a particular
reason for this last regulation- Amid
all this silence, whenever a shout does
occur every body knows that some
imminent danger is expected the next
moment, and all rash away headlong
from the direction of , the shout. As
to running toward it to offer any
assist ance,-'a3 common in all other case3,
it is thoroughly understood that none
can be afforded.. , An, accident here Js

. The. following is a beautiful instance
of the generosity of that noble-hearted
man, Sydney, Smith: , ; J. tl J : t ,.k
A perquisite,- of the chapter of St
Paul's, the living of Edmonton, worth
seven hundred pounds a year, fell to
his share on the death of his associate,
Mr. 'late: 'According to the usase in
such: matters,1 it 'was expected that he
would turn the emolument to his own
advantage. He generously conferred
the whole on the son of the late incum
bent. The incident is so characteris
tically narrated by him, in a letter ad
dressed to' his wife, that it would be
injustice to the reader not to present
the scene in his own words: "I went
over yesterday, to the Tates at Edmon-i
ton. The 1 family consists .nf three
delicate, daughters an aunt, the old
lady, and' her son,' the curate of Ed
monton. j The old lady was in bed.
1 found there a physician, an old friend
of Tate's, attending them from friend
ship, who had come from London for
that purpose. They were in daily ex
pectation : of being turned ; out from
house and curacy. ....... ',1 began r
by inquiring the character of their:
servant; then turned the conversation
upon their affairs and expressed a
hope the chapter 'might ultimately do
something for them. ; I then said 'It
is myduty to state to you they were
all assembled that I have given away
the living at Edmonton, ; and have
written to our chapter clerk this morn
ing to mention the person to whom I
have given it; and t must also tell you
that I 'ami sure; he will appoint his
curate. A general silence and dejec
tion. It is a very odd 'coincdence,, I
added, 'that the gentleman I have
selected is a namesake of this family;
his name is Tate. Have yoti aily re
lations of that name?' 'No, we have
not. .And, by a more singular coincidence,-his
name -is Thoma3 Tate; in
short, 1 added ; 'there is.no .use m
mincing the, matter you arc vicar of
lldmcntoh They all burst into tears:
Itfl ung me, . also, -.into a great" agita
tion of tears, and I wept and groaned
for a' long - time. ; Then . I rose, and
said I thought it was very likely to end
in their keeping a buggy, at which we
all laughed as violenly." . ,- 5
It may be proper to interpose a word
or two on the subject of ejaculatory
prayer; by which wc understand that
secret and J generally silent lifting up
of the heart to. God, which the Chris
tian often proves to he necessary and
profitable when he is unable to retire
from the society and the business of
the world. ;,What supplies of Divine
influence" may .be thus obtained! what
deliverances from anxiety! what vic
tories over ; self and Satan! Enough
to say, ,in tho depth of. . the" heart.
"Lord, help me!" or, "Lord,! am thine,
save me!" even , amid tho hurry . of a
harvest-day, or the bustle of the shon.
or the excitement and provocations of
the market and the fair! ; "A si.ih can
reach his ear;" the falling of a tear,
or the upward glancing of the. soul,
may array on our behalf the resources
of Omnipotence. Such application to
the Giver of all grace keeps up in us
a just senseOf his presence,' oversight,
and all-sufficiency, as also of our entire
dependence upon him; and so proves
a. help to' fidelity, '.watchfulness, : and
spirituality.. It serves to counteract
the influence of things that are seen
and temporal. It nourishes in us that
devotional frame which is cssenti.il to
' safety and strength, and which seems
to be contemplated in the law which
requires . our unceasing supplications.
"Prayer is tho wall which compasses
the city; there must b3 no gap in it."

important question, because -if salt

We have been assured; by those who
have packed butter with and .without

use it for this purpose. The bcstnlan
of salting butter is, to use the purest
salt only; heat it on the fire before
