Extract from a Poem read hefore tA Slxt Annual
Session of tha Ohio Editor's and Publisher' As
sociation, at Dajjton,
BY JAMES JCAM ,
I knew an editor 'twas long ago, i
Befjre the art was blessed by steam cr floB ;
When printers dines on unsubstantial fare, .
And nucsed their hopes on whispers from the air,
Grew rich on poverty, and stuffed their clay .
On airy nothings promises to pay.
Well, as 1 said, I knew him a rare fellow,
Who kept bis own and other's natures mellow; .
One of those social souls we all enjoy,
Who hold in asre the freshness of thtr Vow
Fort h came his paper.nea tly launched and freig ted
Ignoring party, in a party sense,
Avoiding all that might excite offence,
It praised tbe town, its prospects, its advances,
Its enterprise, resources, and finances;
It praised the schools, the teachers so profound,
Until their fame was known for miles aroand ;
It praised the village parson's eloquence,
His modest bearing, !acR of all pretence,
Bat most bis learning and bis solid sense
It praised the doctors, as uncommon skilled.
Adding, with groat suavity and grace,
Their treatment cured more people than it killed :
It spoke and of its truth some doubts will spring
Uf honest lawyers an uncommon thing
Who had a conscience en uncommon case.
In short, it praised so well, that people grew
To think that praise was merited and due i
It was his fault, and grew from an excess
Of aim to please and profit nothing less )
And bad be been to self but half the friend
He was to others, he bad met an end .
That you might safely aim at and command.
His influence was felt: the town's fair fame .
With all who read his paper found a name :
The city pleasurista resorted there,
Enjoyed its quiet and its healthful air;
The artists came, and sketched such charming scenes,
1 bat they were sought to grace the magaxmes ,
And thither, too, came men of enterprise
Blocks rose on blocks, and mills and factories,
Hotels palatial, and stores that vied
With those on Broadway, or along Cheapside.
In brief, the town, that ere the printer came,
Hsd scarce "a local habitation and a name,"
As though 'twere touched by magic grew to be
An inland city: but how flourished he ?
Come with me, up three flights of stairs, and there,
In dinjry dayhsht and lead-poisonea air,
Beside his desk he sits : bis hair has grown
Gray with the flecks that time and care have sown:
Around him lie exchanges, scraps, and clippings,
Half-written leaders, local puffs, and sippings
Of Punch-j humour : manuscripts rejected,
From geniuses who think themselves neglected ;
Obituary verses full of gloom,
And doleful voices from a doleful tomb ;
" Lines to a Lady." from a Mister Dash,
Who's desperately in love with his moustache ;
A sentimental song about sea-shells,
Writ by a moDine. melancholy she,
Who would b ; married, though her face yet imella
Of bread-and-butter and the nursery;
An eulogy on General Blank's oration,
Delivered off-bnnd at the late ovation,
And which suggests, by way of mere reflection,
ft i. ..i t v-i. a : . .(;.
Modesty requests, which hope hell cot refuse
To notice this or that in next week's News;
A bunch of bad cigars, that some one sends,
Expecting thrice their value in a "local f
Unopened invitations from his friends,
Asking hi3 presence at a concert vocal,"
Or at a lecture, part, hop, or ball,
At such a date ( please mention J ana suca nau; .
Novels and books not worth a decent rating,
Sent out they send few others but for cash
By eastern firms, who take that way of bating
The country press to advertise their trasn ;
Tn ghort, a hundred things by men devised
To get their baubles cheaply advertised.
There, patient toiler 1 ever at his work,
Himself his forman, publisher, and clerk,
He labonred hard few men had labonred harder
Grew lean in person, leaner in his larder ;
And still be toiled, from dawn to twilight gray,
The first of men to court the last to pay J
some said that be was rich it might be true,
Provided that you reckoned what was due ;
But this his dearest friends both said and knew
His wants were many, but his dimes were few.
His paper-bills came in, which must be paid,
So to delinquents he appealed for aid ;
ne would take pork, potatoes, corn, or oats,
Axe-hclvcs or boop-poles, or, at worst, their notes ;
n short, take any thing they bad to pay,
'roviden it was brouzht by such a day.
And thus he turned short corners, always pressed,
A sad example of Pope's safest saw,
"Man never is, but always to be blessed,"
The victim of a fate that knows no law.
eset by butchers, by his baker teased,
By creditors besieged, by bailiff's squeezed,
lie yielded slowly, in the desperate atrue,
His dingv office and bis troubled life,
And gave to quiet earth and modest stones .
His many virtues and bis aching bones.

TJIIir. PLACE IN THE ICE.
Hurra for the skaters! How they
wheel, how they skim over the clear
smooth jce. The air is still, the sun
brinht : the trees, fields, and fences are
germed with brilliants ; and the earth
looks like a superb snow-palace, witn
broader halls and richer rooffing than ever
Queen Catharine of Russia had in her
famous ice-palace on the Neva.
I believe the boys like winter best. r
Thev like the river better for skating than
sailing, the hills or coasting ; and then,
-what music so merry as the jingling of the
sleigh-bells "bells, bells, bells?
A winter scene like this reminds me
of a skating scene long ao. There was
always a thin place in the ice on our
river, near the dam, where the boys were
warned not to go. "Gire a wide berth to
the thin ice yonder," was said to the little
boys and new recruits among the big
boys. But it was singular how almost
every boy like J to try his skates in that
dangerous vicinity. One would shuffle
along and reconnoitre. Another he
didn't believe there teas any danger
would take a bolder sweep, and just es
cape its edge. Another he didn't care
for danger, not he would shoot across
it, bending and cracking under him, and
only save himself by the swiftness of his
flight : until the leader of?a gang of boys.
in the high excitement of a chase, dashed
boldly on the thin place in the ice, every
nne t his Wis. Crack, crash! plunging,
leaping, splashing, and half a dozen were
struggling and gasping ior me in uie icy
waters. Two of the boys were drowned;
two were rescued by almost superhuman
efforts; two saved themselves.
I often am reminded of the thin place
in the ice, for I see many just such thin
places on the surface of society, where,
in spite of ; all warning, many and many
a boy slumps through, or makes a bold
plunge to ruin.
- When I see a boy strutting with his first
cigar, spending his first earnings at the
livery stable, forsaking the society of his
sisters for "nobody knows whe," which is
generally pretty doubtful company, Ah. I
say, he's bearing cn a thin place in society
Which will certainly let him down if he
does not beat a retreat, and thai speedily.
S hen I see a young man sprinkling
his talk with slang phrases, fond of bet
ting, carrying a pack of cards in his pocket,
and seeming to have plenty of leisure,
Ah, I say, that young man is on a thin
place in the ice4
When I see a young man careless cf
small debts, willing to be dunned, often
off duty, and calling his father "the old
man," anl know that young man is on
a thin place in the ice.
When I see a young man's seat at church
vacant, find him fond of picking flaws in
Christian character, complaining uf the
strictness of his minister, quibbling with
Bible truth, and edging off from the whoh
some restraints of a pious education, I say
that young man is on a thin place in the
ice, which will certainly give way under
him, and lea him floundering and sink
ing in the cold waters of ungodliness and
There are a great many thin places on
the surface of society, boys. Give them
a wide berth. Secure solid footing, and
then go ahead. Press on, right on, and
on for the right.
Courtship is the last brilliant scene in
the maiden life of woman. It is, to her,
a garden where no weeds mingle with the
flowers, but all is lovely and beautiful to
her senses. It is a dish of nightingales
served up by moonlip-ht to the mingled
music of manly tenderness and gentle
whispers an eagerness that does not out
step the bounds of delicacy, and a series
of flattering, throbbing, hisrh pulses,
burniijg cheeks, and drooping lashes. But,
however delightful it may be, courtship is,
nevertheless, a serious business ; it is the
first turning point in the life of a woman,
crowded with perih and temptations.
There is as much danger in tha strength
of love as in its weakness. The kindled
hope requires watchinsr. The rose tints
of affection dazzle and bewilder the un
agmation, and wnile always bearing in
mind that life without love is a wilderness,
it should not be overlooked that true af
fection requires solid supports. Discretion
tempers fashion, and it is precisely that
quality which, oftener than any other,
is found to be absent in courtship. Young
adies in love,, therefore, require wise
counselors. They should not trust too
much to the impulses of the heart, nor be
too easily captivated by a winning exte-
nor. in the selection er .a Busoana,
character should be considered more than
appearances. loung men incimea to in
temperate habits even but slightly 'j
rarely make good husbands in the end ;
they have not sufficient moral stamina to
enable them to resist temptation even in
its incipient stages, and, being thus de
ficient in self-respect, they can not possess
that pure, uncontarninated feeling which
alone capacitates a man for rightly ap
preciating the tender and loving nature
of a true woman. The irreligious man
is" like a ship" without a rudder, and he
never can make a good husband ; for a
house darkened by cold skepticism or an
indifference to religion and its duties is
. l it
never a home it is merely a sneiter;
there is but little warmth in the atmos
phere of the rooms, and every object in
them looks chill and chilling. The indo-
ent man, likewise, cannot be expected to
make a good husband, for he neglects his
time and wastes his estate, allowing it to
overrun with tnisties ana Dramaies, ana
subsists on the industry of others. Every
precaution, then, is necessary in the selec
tion of a husband. . .
A satirical Poetess tells the editor of
the Ifew York Leader the manner in
which she wants to be "done for" after
her . spirit has departed for that world
where poetess, are of no more account than
the prosiest washerwoman :
. Psalms of DaTld.
The following eloquent extract is from
a lecture by Henry Giles on the Psalms
of David: '
"Great has, been their power in the
world. They resounded amid the court
of the tabernacle'; they floated through
he lofty and solemn space of the temple;
they were sung with glory on the Hills of
Zion ; they were sung with sorrow by the
streams of Babel. And when Israel had
passed away, the harp of David was still
awakened in the church of Christ. In all
the eras and ages of that church, from the
hymn which was first whispered in an
upper chamber until its anthems lined the
earth, the inspiration of the royal prophet
has enraptured its devotions and ennobled
its rituals. Chorused by the winds of
Heaven, they have rolled over the broad
desert of Asia, in the matins and vespers
of ten thousands of hermits. They have
rung through the deep valleys of the
Alps, in the sobbing voices of the forlorn
Waldenses ; through the deeps and caves
of Scottish Highlands, in the rude chant-in"-
of the Scottish Covenanters; through
the woods and wilds of primitive Amer
ica, in the heroic hallelujahs cf princely
La Z Kttss ventures a couple of

hours at a baker s door to smeu it your

When I am dead I want to lio
As snug and cozy as can te ;
I want yoa all to weep and sigh,

I want you all to wear your beit,

With satin all around my head

surprise the natives give them such a
rendition of the character as they had
never previously witnessed, and we are
inclined to think he could have done it.
Upon being requested to give a specimen
of his talent, he delivered himself as fol

Not long since there was a great re
ligious excitement among the negroes in
the neighborhood of a certain southren
city. . Numbers were baptized nearly
every day. On one occasion the colored
preacher was leading a big fellow named
Bob into the water to baptize him. Bob
was a little in advance, and coming to a
'stepping off place,' down he went drag
ging the preacher after him. After con
siderable floundering and spluttering they
both reached the shore, when Bob, very
much excited, delivered himself thus:
"Now, lookheah! some man'll lose a

As the train entered the Big Tunnel, near

Frantic with .fright, she implored her
Maker, to' have mercy on her re

on the seat in front of the terrified negro,
wa3 deeply mortified, and called upon her :
Mollie, don't make such a noise. it is I,
be not afraid.' The poor African imme
diately exclaimed: 'Oh, missus, dat you ?
Jest what I 'spected ; I allu3 thought if

with such vehemence, that not a word was
lost, and the whole coach became con

To presirve Grapes till Winter.
About September, when grapes are
nearly ripe, pro:ure some bags made
either of crape, muslin, gauze, or white
paper. Select some of the best bunches,
and, with a pair of sharp, narrow pointed
scissors, cut off all small, unripe, rotten,
mouldy, or imperfect grapes, especially
those eaten by flies or wasps. Inclose
each bunch in a bag, and tie the bag fast
with a string, so that no insect can get
into it. In -the middle of a fine day in
October, gather them, with a piece cf the
shoot to them, and hang them up in a dry
warm room. -Dip the end of the shoots
in melted rosin or sealing wax. Examine
them frequently, lest they shculd ' giit
