Friday, April2,lSi58. I am in receipt
of a streak of sunshine from the West,
which iu Editor calls' the "Advertiser.
In consequence 'of this courtesy, I feel
like grasping' the fingers of humauily,"
that portion. of which dwell in the Ne
maha ralley, "besides giving them a" cor

noon. Wonder if they hare such sweet
sunshine to linger on the hills!. tempting
their anchorite bosoms with a glow of
warmth and beauty, and as it goes out the
purple gates of the WeSt, it seems sad
and regretful to leave us 'for a1 single
night? ' ' .. ;
No uncurbed winds, no drifting snows,
no frost jewels like the last April, but in
stead, the, gentle south wind, sonj of
larks, and thi bright eyes of the wild

Our plow is. turning up its nose,' snuf

weary furrow with sowing the' seed ; and

If I have not proved that Spring is

immortalized, so as to perfect him in what
the London Times calls "bed-room litte-

But here goes a fair equestrian,' fol
lowed by a cavalier some twenty-five rods
distant, very leisurely pacing his naj, for
he has the disadvantages of a high wind
and a spavined "boss." There is noplace
where a lady shows off so well as in the
saddle, if she has grace and manages her
steed properly. But deliver us from the
sight of a fat cirl bobbing up and down
in the seat like a sick kitten; a little hat
on her head covered with bows and tails
of ribbons, skirts flopping around, and she
thinking all the charms and graces are
fluttering about her; may we be exused
Saturday April 3. Our farmers have
not the ambition to raise produce as they
did last year, for there is n market but
our dinner pot yet, and every body un
easy to get off for some country where
there is no panic, cheap land, and plenty
of money. Great stories aboot the "good
times" in Missouri and some of the Ter
ritories; but in our humility we would
advise to stick it out a while longer, for

Brownville has a river, Newton only
the promise of a railroad. The progress
of these towns can never be parallel again,
though settled about the same time.
We have pretty much concluded to wear
old shoes, old hats, and old clothes gener

been East for fpring goods, and they
brought a small stock. : Indeed, old
watches still are the only legal tender,
and money an apocryphal idea of bye
gones. If it is fashionable to be economi
cal, the country's salvation is at hand,
and we hope for the "better times

cook has colored eggs for breakfast, and
the bells have a merrier chime than usual
this morning. Now many Catholics are
praising that Jesus, which .the I'resDyte

have never mentioned his resurrection to
day so afraid of . conformity, to . another
sect. But some way, the little plain hall,
with its blue backed seats, its low jough

I was haunttd with visions of . marble
domes and gilded spires, the .fragrance

A tinofular circumstance happened at
our union last week. For some miscon

there was a corpse in the "dead-ward," in

The master fltd stricken with terror, and

The following letter was sent by a man
i his sou at college: "Mvdear son I
write to send you two pair of old breeches,
that you may have a new coat made of
them. Also some new socks, which your
mother has ' iust knit by cutting down
some of mine. Your mother sends you
ten dollars without my knowledge, and
for fear you would not spend it wisely, I
have kept back half, and send only hve.

think would spread among the other girls,
if Tom had not had them before, and he
is the only one left. I hope you will do
honor to my tf achiugs; if you do not,- 3'ou
are an ass, and your mother and myself
are your affectionate parents."
"Much remains unsung," as the torn
cat remarked to the stone when it abrupt
ly cut short his senerade.
There is a point in the following remark
of an eminent minister, which we should
be glad to have some of our noisy clergy
men regard.,The clergyman was remark
able in the first period of his ministry for
a boistrous mode of preaching, but sud
denly adopted a mild 'and dispassionate
style. One of his brethren inquired what
induced him to make a change ? He was
answered, "When I was young I thought
it was thunder th-t killed the people; but
when I grew wiser I discovered that it
was the lightning; so 1 determined . to
thunder less and lighten more."
