The Secret of Happiness.
The most common error of men and
women, is that of looking for happiness i
somewhere outside of useful work. It (
has never yet been found, when thus j
sought; and never will be, while the
world tstands; and the sooner this truth is
learneJ, the tetter for every one. If you

a circumference of five acres. Each of
these have a complicated system of ves
sels for the circulation of its juices. Some
trees have leaves narrow and short, oth
ers as the talipot of Ceylon have lea
ves so large that one of them can shelter
fifteen or twenty men. Some exuviate
their leaves annually, as a whole robe,
leaving the tree nude, its bare stem tow
ering aloft, and its branches spreading
themselves uncovered in the sky; while
the leaves of others drop off one by one,
new ones constantly growing in place of
the dismembered ones, and the tree re
taining its perpetual verdure.
There have actually been ascertained,
in the animal kingdom, about 61,000 spe
cies of living creatures. There are 600
species of mammalia those that suckle
their young the most of which are qua
drupeds. Of birds there are 4,000 species;
of fishes, 3.000 ; of reptiles, 700 ; and of
insects, 41,000 species. Besides these
there are 8,000 species of shell-fish, and
not less than &0,000 or 100,000 species
of animalcules invisible to the naked eye.
Some forms of life require a moist at
mosphere, others a dry one. A blue wa
ter lily grows in the canals of Alexan
dria, which, when the water evaporates
from the beds of tho canals, dries up;
and when the water is again in the canals
it arain crows and blossom! And some
of the lowest animals may bo completely
dried and kept in this state any length of
time, but when they are again moistened

Of all the miserable human beings it
has been our fortune, or misfortune, to
know, they were the most wretched who
had retired from useful employments, in
order to enjoy themselves. Why, the

toiler for bread, were supremely happy in
Earnestly would we press upon young
minds the truth we have stated. It lies
at the foundation of all well-doing, and
well-being. It gives tranquillity and
pleasure to the youth just stepping across
the threshold of rational life, as well as
to the man whose years are beginning to
rest upon his stoop-shoulders. Be ever
engaged in useful work, if you would be
happy. This is the great secret.
Male Teachers for Girls.
Fanny Fern doesn't think much of school
masters as governess of girls thinks the
damsels are "too many" for 'era: ,
"I pity a male teacher who is set to the
impossible task of making girls 'behave.'
I shoidd pity them more, did I not know
that they keep them in school about four
or five hours longer than they ought. Did
I not know what they know, but will per
sist practically in ignoring that the fun
has to got to come out somehow, or turn
to poison in the blood, and that if teach

A Slidlng-Scalc of Politeness. .
Count de Nicwerke is celebrated for
the tact ty which he marks by word and
gesture the degree of esteem or consider
ation due to the rank of his guests. To
indicate his success in this particular, it
is familiarly said that Princ) Talleyrand
must have taught L;:;i hi les.?en, the
story connected v.-;:h wh::h runs thai:
One day Taliey: - r.d 1. v'. .-, !jzenguc-sts j
to dinner, and after, th . t; ;;, he cliered j
seme beef to his "vioilors. "My Lord
Duke," said he to one with an air of def
erence, selecting the best piece, "may I
have the honor of offering you some
beef?" "My Lord Marquis," he said to
a second, with a gracious smile, "may I
have the pleasure of offering you some
beef?" To a third he said with an affable
air, "Dear Count, may I offer you some .)
beef? With an amiable smile he asked
a fourth, "Baron, will vcu take some
beef?" To a fifth, who had no tittle of!
nobility, but was an advocate, he said,
"Mr. le Conseiller, will you have any j
beef i 1 inally, to the gentleman at the
bottom of the table, Talleyrand, pointing
to the dish with his knife, called out, wi:h
a jerk of the head and a patronizing
smile, "A little beef?"
The following will afford information

Zouaves. The latest edition of Web
ster's quarto dictionary gives it in the
following definition : "The name of an
active and hardy body of soldiers in the
French service, originally Arabs, but now
Frenchmen who wear the Arab dress."
It is "derived from the Arabic word Zou

"I must confess," writes Baprd Tay
lor, "I have a higher reverence for the
virtue of hospitality than we seem to set
upon it at present. When a Turk regales
a Christian with ham, (as it happened at
Athens last winter); when a priest in
Lent roasts his turkey for you ; when an
advocate of the Maine Law gives his
German friend a glass of ine ; when
some of my anti-tobacco friends allow me
to smoke a cigar in the back parlor, with
the windows open, there is a sacrifice of
self on the altar of common humanity.
True hospitality involves a consideration
for each other's habits not excesses,
mind you, but our usual habits of life
even when they differ on such serious
grounds as I hae mentioned. But I have
dined with vegetarians who said, 'Meat
is unwholesome, so my conscience will
not let me give it to you ;' or with ventila

are injurious ;' and I was starved and
A Beautiful Sentiiacnt.
The late eminent Judge Sir Allen Park
once said at a public meeting ia London;
"We live in the midst of llessings till
we are utterly insensible of their great
ness, and of the source from whence they
itaw. We speak of our civilization, our
arts, our freedom, our laws, and forget
entirely how large a share is due to
Christianity. Blot Christianity out of the
pages of man's history, and what would
his laws have been? whath:s civilization?
Christianity is mixed up with our very
being and our daily life; there is not a

The Mother 3IoIds tUc Man.
That it is the mother who molds the
man, is a sentiment beautifully illustrated
by the following recorded cbservation of
a shrewd writer:
"When I lived among the Choctaw In
dians, I held a consultation with one of
their chiefs, respecting the successive sta
ges of their progress in the arts of civil
ized life ; and, among other things, he
informed me that at their start they fell
into a great mistake they only sent boys
to school. These boys came heme intel
ligent men, but they married uneducated
and uncivilized wives and the uniform
result was, the children were alLlike their
mothers. The father soon lost all his in
tere.st in both wife and children. 'And
now,' said he, 'if we would educate but
one class of our children, we should choose
the girls, for when they become mothers
theyeducate their sons.' This is the point
and it is true. No nation can become
fully enlightened, when mothers are not
in a good degree qualified to discharge
the duties of the home work of education,"

through the key-hole. Not that I uphold
it, but every animal naturally fights with
the weapon as good Providence has given
it that's the amount of it and somehow
or other I had found that out, though
whether France was bounded south by
Rhode Island or not, was still a mystery
that I was not in a perspiration to solve."
Some truth in that, according to the
best of our knowledge and belief. It
takes woman to snub woman.
Dr. Johnson pays the following beauti
ful tribute to tears:
There is a sacredness in tears. They
are not the mark of weakness, but of
power. They speak more eloquently than
ten thousand tongues. They are the mes
sages of overwhelming grief, of deep con
trition, of unspeakable love. If there
were wanting any argument to prove that
man were mortal, I would look for it in
the strong, convulsive emotions of the
breast, when the soul had been deeply
agitated ; when the fountain of feeling is
rising and when tears are gushing forth
in crystal streams. O, speak not harshly
of the stricken one weeping in silence !
Break not the solemnity by rude laughter
or intrusive footstep. Despise not young
woman's tears they are-what make her
an angel. Scoff not if the stern heart of
manhood is sometimes melted in sympathy
they are what help to elevate him above
the brute. Hove to see tears of affection.
They are painful tokens, but still most
holy. There is a pleasure in tears; an
awful pleasure. If there were none on
earth to shed a tear for me I should loathe
to live; and if no one might weep over
my grave, I should never die in peace.
Archbishop Leighton wrote thus, on
hearing of the death of a child he loved :

Some young ladies, feeling themselves
aggrieved by the severity with which
their friends animadverted on their gay

there can be- any impropriety in our

There seems to be no limit to the ap
plication of photography, and the useful
as well as the fine arts, have participated
in the incalculable benefits which have
followed its discovery. It has recently
been applied to facilitate the process of
printing calicoes. Heretofore the patterns
have been drawn upon a small scale, en
larged by a laborious proces. and then
transferred to rollers. The Manchester
Print Works have for several months been
successfully using a photographic process,
to aid in transferring from the original
patterns to the copper roll. The process
saves a great amount of manual labor and
insures great accuracy.
