"irba? do hen scratch, dar sbsYfeo to Ccd a lr.."
JJj Hearers I arn informed that a
dark complexioned preacher in Culumbus,
Ohio, once took the above for hh text, and
proved from it that our first parents fell
out of an apple tree into a mud hele, v.hich
caused their first - torn .to be as black as
your hat. I am afraid that my colored co
laborer ha3 msde much more outcf it than
I can; for turn it over, set -it up en cr.
lay it down ar.i spread it open after all,
this old rooster don't find much to pick at.
In the flrt place, my brethren, I will
propound a pious conundrum: "Why are
men like watches! Because you must look
inside of them for their good qualities, and
juajre of them by their "work. '
Well, my brethren, the work of men and
women in general consists, for the most
part in scratching-, and the prospect of a
bug" is trie incentive.' You may notice,
my brethren, that whenever a Len makes
a scratch, she always gives a pick; but
whether she gis a bug at every dip is
very uncertain. - I imagine not. Never
theless, "whar do hen scratch, dar she
spec to find a bug1.
Expecting is one thing, you know, my
friends, and finding is another. : You may
turn over many a stone, in this precious
worli, and find no bug after all. Phrciicv
logically speaking, the.human head is one
vast bump of expectation and nothing else;
There are various sorts of bug?, gentle
men, in this buggy sphere. There are
big bugs, little bugs, tumble bug?, straddle
bugs, bed bugs, hum bugs, and bug bears.
But you needn't scratch about much to
find any of these,'' for they are every
where thicker than skippers in a three
yeir old cheese. j
To find the bug you so earnestly desire
requires dilligent scratching; and if by so
doing you don't happen to catch it, you can
comfort yoSrself - with the reflection that
you put in the licks and it ought to have
been yours. If a young man takes a girl
around to see the shows, feeds her with
tit-bits, and buys her calicoes, his title to
a kiss is indisputable for, "Whar de hen
scratch dar she spec to find a bug."
The &3t you are after, my brethren,
is the rold bug, but lack a day, how many
of you scratch in vain! yet it is found in
manure heaps as well as in auriferous
places. The farmer turns it up with his
plough, and the gardner with his spade,
and yet thousands keep scratching here
and there without finding nary bug.
A few months ago, hundreds of you fell
to scratching Frazer's river, expecting to
find a mighty big bug. .Well, you scratch
ed, and-scratched, and scratched; and
what did you turn out at last ! a monstrous
humbug ! You got frightened and scram
bled for home, a vast sight more buggy
than when you went for, "Whar de
hen scratches, there she expects to find a
And now you all want to go to Pike's
Peak country, but then there is so many
ways to get there, you are in a quandary
which way to choose. Its like getting to
Heaven. The Catholics insist upon going
through purgatory- the Baptists go a
round-about way, and keep where there
is plenty of water, as they belong to the
class known as amphihiae the Presby
terians thinks their road the safest, tnougn
rather .'hot the Universalists declare
theirs to be the most pleasant while the
Methodists shout "hallelujah," and scare
up rabbits as they journey on the good old
Jordan route. But when you-are once
there (at the diggings I mean, for I'm
sure you'll never reach the other place,)
one stands as good a chance as another
and I don't know but a little better.
You all have about an equal amount of
hope if not pluck, and each will probably
pitch in and dig with all the energy of a
terrier at a gopher hole for, "Where the
hen scratches, there she expects to find a
bug." f ' -
Let ine make another application of the
text my brethren. Beware of the oily
tongued sycophantic friendwho is ever
ready to do a small favor who professes
a willingness to serve you at all times
who praises you as the fox did the crow ;
for while he is thus squeezing himself into
your good grace, he has an eye on your
purse yourself forgetting for the moment
that "Whar de hen scratches, dar she
spec to find a bug." ?
My friends, how uneasy the immortal
mind is in its pent up prison of clay? How
it seems to exalt in its freedom while
winging its way to azure fields of light
and glory, or wandering amid the green
old bowers of the past where none but
itself is permitted to roam.
What, then must be its delight when
forever released from its thraldom ef flesh,
and no longer dependent upon bread, beef
and potatoes ! The day will come when
liberty, such as mortals Lave not ' yet
known, will be blissfully realized in the
eternal sphere, where where "Where
the hen scratches, she expects to a find a
bug;" So mote it be !

A bird cannot live without a large supply
of pure air. A canary bird heng up in
a curtained bedstead where two pinions
slept, died befure morning. ;
Many infants are found dead in be I,
and it is attributed to having been over
laid by the parent ; but the idea that any
persons could lay still for a moment cn a
baby, or anything ehe of the same tize,
i.'i absurd.' Death was caused by the want
of pure air. '
; Besides, emanations, aerial and more

person thrown out by processes cf nature

because they are dead and corrupt but

It would be a constitutional, a moral

Eating Dirt Practically.
Humboldt, a man ; whose word justly
carries with it European authority, con
firms the statement of Gumilla, that the
Ottomacs of South America, during the
periods of the Hoods, subsist entirely cn a
fat and f erauginous kind of clay, of which
each man eats daily a pound crmcre.
Spix and Martius declare that the Indians
of the Amazon eat a kind of loam even
when other food is abundant.. Molina
says the Peruvians frequently eat a sweet
smelling clay ; and Ehrenberg has- ana
lyzed the edible clay sold in the markets
of Bolivia, which he finds to be ft mixture
of talc and rnica.' The inhabitants of
Guiana mingle clay with their tread; and
the negroes of Jamaica are said to eat
earth when other food is deficient. , Ac
cording to Labillardies, the inhabitants of
New Caledonia appease their hunger with
a white friable earth, said by Vanquelin
to be composed of magnesia, suica oxide
of iron and chalk. To conclude the list,
we must add Siam, Siberia, and Kamschat
ka, as countries of clay-eaters. This is
rather a staggering accumulation of as
sertions, which we can not dismiss alto
gether, even if we suppose a large allow
ance of skepticism justifiable. Granting the
fact that certain kinds cf earth are really
nutritious (and it is difficult to escape such
a conclusion,) we are completely at aloss
for an adequate explanation cf it. Little
light is thrown on it by the assumption,
probable enough, that the earth must con
tain organic matter, because in a pound
of such earth there could scarcely be con
tained sufficient organic matter to supply
the demands of an adult. Nor will i: get
rid of this difficulty to say that the earth
only appeases hunger without nourishing
the system, because, in the first place,
Humboldt's testimony is, that the Ottomacs
subsist on the clay at periods when ether
food is deficient; and ia the second place,
although the local sensation of hunger
may be appeased by introducing sub3tancc3
into the ftomach, the more imperious
systemic sensation of hunger i:s net thus
to be appeased. We must, therefore, be
content with accepting the fact, which the
science cf future days may possibly ex
plain. Elachicood. -."

. George cf Cappadocia, born at Epi
phania, inCicilia, was a low parasite, who
got a lucrative contract to supply the army
with bacon. A rogue an I informer, he
got rich, and had to run from justice. He
embraced Arianism, collected .a library,
and got promoted by facti:n to the Epis
copal throne of Alexandria. Yhen Julian
came, A. D. 361, George was thrown into
prison, the prison was burst cren by the
mob, sund George was lynched a3 he de
served. And the precious knave became
in good time the St. George cf England,
patron of chivalry, and the pride cf the
best bleed cf the modern world. Strange
that the New World should have no better
luck--that broad America rau:it wear the
name of thief. America. Vespuci, the

Hear what a writer in that standard
medical work, the London Lancet, says
about the beard ;
As a qualified surgeon, T teg to appeal
briefly to yourself and your readers against
an extraordinary custom to which we
Englishmen are prone viz: that of shav
ing. After a residence" abroad, where,
of course, I allowed my beard to grow as
nature intended it, I returned to my native
land, and anxiou3 to do in Rome as the
Romans do, at once had recourse to my
long neglected razor. A severe cough
and continual neuralgia have been there
ult. Smarting under an anguish almost
intolerable, I wish to know whether any
of your contributors can assij:a a scienti
fic or even a plausible reason why the
practice should continue. It was first
adopted by the nation during the reign of
the most licentious and effeminate cf cuf
kings. The heart has been worn by poets,
philosophers and divines men cf whom
the Avorld was not worthy. It is more
than ordinarily required in our variable
climate, and I have yet to ham a valid
reason for the disfavor with which it 13
regarded at the present day.

"One-more question, mother," said
George, a week or more after his last
Sabbath talk "one more cmestion about
Sabbath-keeping. Pleasure-parties, walk
ing, riding, or sailing, are, I know, a sin
ful breaking of the holy Sabbath. I think
that is clear from God's word. But may
not a Christian take walks and his heart
be really benefited by it? There is Mr.
Thomas, the superintendent of our Sabbath-school,
for instance; every1 tody calls
him a pattern man. What would te the
harm cf hi3 going to Oakland, visiting the
cascade, jumping into the little boat at the
pass, and paddling over its quiet waters?
Would not the works cf God around him
favor his meditations upon the divine good
ness and power? Where's the harm?"
"There ia a scripture principle," ans
wered the boy's mother, "which enjoin3
U3 to 'abstain from all appearance cf evil.'
We must consider not merely what would
be agreeable to U3, but what will be the
effect of our example upon ethers. The
apostle Paul said, 'If meat make my
brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while
the world standeth.' 1 Cor. Sc 13. He
would deny himself for the sake of ethers.
Would Mr. Thomas appear to others to
be remembering the Sabbath day to keep
it holy, while doing what you mentioned?
Is i; best, on the whole, that riding, walk
ing, cr sailing should be among the oc
cupations of holy time ? If you are doubt
ful about your way cf spending the Sab
bath, ask yourself if God would be hon
ored, cr the Sabbath sacredly kept, if all
were to spend it so. Try to do that which,
if generally followed would promote the
highest good; otherwise you may be doing
that which, though safe for yourself,
