Tbe Yalae or Employment.
Since both soul and body are made for
exertion, there is nothing more conducive
to cheerfulness, the result of their joint
health, than fit employment.. Ahousp be
reft of tenants goes to decay. A vehicle
laid up without use rusts and moulders. A
fine piece of machinery is never so safe,
as when lubricated and raoYing. Body
and soul made for perpetual activity, must
work, and work together, in order to be
in good condition. Of all engines, the
human body is the most amazing. From
the days of Socrates, as reported by Xe
nophon, philosophy has been studying the
mechanics, the chemistry, the vital force,
the adaptions, the final causes of this
structure: so wonderfully made. There
are no steps forward to new principles in
physics, in optics, in the growth of struc
tures, which does not find itself anticipat
ed by some marvelous realization of its
idea in the human body. Considered as
a working engine, there is none which
works so cheaply, with so little waste, or
so long, and which contains such provi
sions for its own repair. How every sur
vey of the skillful mechanism shows that
it was made to move. Its central, propel
ling engine, never stops, except in cases
which cause instant dread of death.
Heart, lungs and brains, play on through
all the thousand nights of sleep. An in
stinct of nature prompts the young to be
in almost perpetual motion. Absolute rest
there is none. And if, from necessity or
choice, any approach to immobility be
comes the habitude of body, as is the case
in some sluggish and morbid natures, the
result is leihargy and endless disturbance
of the vital functions. This frame was
made for labor.
Equally true is this of the yet more
subtle because spiritual part. Of a mind
that does not think, no man can frame a
notion. The human mind is made to be
active. It is inquiring, and thirsty for
knowlekge. Its active powers irresistab
ly seek for some object on which to exert
themselves. Healthful, moderate repose,
chiefly by change of employment, isgo.od;
but entire, continual, unbroken quiescence
is misery. Never was there a more dire
mistake than that of men who abandon
the honest and useful business of life, un
der the pretext of rest. Unless they have
singular resources in science, literature,
or philanthropy, they sink into lassitude,
weary of the everlasting holiday, let their
hearts corrode with sullen thoughts, and
sometimes fall a prey to evil habits or
premature dotage. Philosophy no less
than religion, enjoins unless where in
vincible necessities from infirmity or age
clearly speak another language that we
should live working, and die in the har
ness. Hence the value of a trade or call
ing, and of working at it. I believe it
lengthens life. 1 believe it staves off
tribes of maladies and conceits. Im a sure
it promotes that spring and elevation of
soul, without which life is a long disease.
If you would find the most wretched man
or woman in your neighborhood, look for
the one who has nothing to do". Unless
allowed to prescribe employment, even
the best physician cannot cure the valetu
dinary complainer. For after all has
been said, employment begets cheerful
ness ; and a "merry hearth doeth good
like a medicine."
A Lesson from Nature.
The larger animals are never supported
laterally ; their limbs are always in a po
sition nearly vertical ; as we descend in
the scale of size the lateral support be
comes more frequent, till we lind the
whole tribes cf insects resting on limbs
almost horizontally. The slightest con
sideration will convince any one that la
teral or horizontal limbs would be quite
inadequate to support the weight of the
larger animals. Conceive a spider to in
crease till his body weighed as much as
that of a man, and then fancy one of us
exhibiting feats of dexterity with such
locomotive instruments as the spider
would then possess!
How interesting it is to compare the
different animals, and to trace the gradu
ai change of form which accompanies
each increase of size ! In the smaller
animals, the strength is, as it were, re
dundant, and there is room for the display
of the most elaborate ornament. How
complex or how beautiful are the myriads
of insects which float in the air, or which
cluster on the foliage! Gradually the
larger of these become more simple in
their structure, their ornaments less pro
fuse. The structure of the birds is simpler
and more uniform, that of the quadruped
still more so. As we approach the larger
quadrupeds, ornament and then elegance
disappear. This is the law in the works
of nature, and this ought to be the law
among the works of art.
Among one class of animals, indeed, it
may be said that this law is reversed.
We have by no means a . general classifi
cation of the fishes ; but among those
with which we are acquainted, we do not
perceive such a prodigious change of form.
Here, however, . the animal has - not to
support its own weight; and whatever in
crease may take place in the size of the
animal, a like increase take place in the
buoj-ancy of the fluid in which it swims.
Many of the smaller aquatic animals ex
hibit the utmost simplicity of structure;
but we know too little of the nature of
their functions to draw any useful conclu
sions from this fact.
An editor always considers his room
better than his company.
A Dog-Story for the Holler-Days.
The residents of North Water street,
Geneva, N. Y., were afforded, no little
amusement a few days since, by the inci
dents narrated to us in substance as fol
A countryman, the owner of a large
but usually good-natured dog, drove-in
town on the day stated.' Near the rail
road crossing on AVater 1 street, : "Tiger"
fell into bad company, and a regular muss
ensued. Taken suddenly, and almost un
awares, the countryman's dog seemed
hardly to comprehend whether it was a
"free fight" in earnest, or only the rough
sort of play of village "hounds," until he
foui d himself in a "throat to mouth" con
test with a regular fighting character, in
the shape of a trained bull-dog, and get
ting the worst of it. His master, howev
er, by this time comprehended the nature
of the muss, and springing from his wa
gon, caught the bull-dog by his "narra
tive" and endeavored to separate the com
batants.' "Let that dog alone or I'll lam you ov
er the head !" growled a rough and exci
ted looking customer standing by, who
proved to be the owner of the bull.
"Oh, then, you want 'em to fight, do
ye ?" ejaculated homespun, dropping the
end ; and then, at the top of his voice,
shouted, "Go in Tige !"
And Tige did "go in." Instantly the
tide of tattle was turned. Tige secured
and was making good use of his vantage
ground, when bull's owner suddenly be
come converted to a peacemaker. Suiting
the action to the idea, he made a feint to
release his dog from the vice-like jaws of
"Let that dog alone, or I'll lam yoo
over the head !" shouted the countryman;
and he straigtened up and swelled out to
such huge proportions that "Rock-street"
desisted terror-stricken at the menace.
Tiger pursued his work in hand until
the piteous "ky-yi !" of his assailant
seemed to produce pity in the dog's heart
of the former, for he relaxed his hold and
the latter slunk away, with the appear
ance of three legs behind.
As the countryman jumped into his wa
gon he called out to bull-dog's master,
"Whenever you want another fight, just
say the word, as me and Tige allers tra
We pity the man or the woman who
having been stunned by a great misfor
tune staggers forth into the world unaided
by any friendly arm, striving courageous
ly to bear up without the sympathy which
no human being can long exist and dis
pense with, and yet cut off from seeking
it, or even accepting it, should it come in
their way, because explanation or confes
sion would involve a sacnligious invasion
of the heart's history. They only who
have waded through deep waters of trou
ble, alone know from the deprivation of
it the might of human sympathy to roll
off the surging billows. But pent up
tears, suppressed groans, a fettered ton
gue, a throbbing heart with ever an iron
hand upon it, God pity such, for He alone
knows what they suffer. And so, if we
hear a petulant word or look upon an
unsmiling face, or meet no grand response
to our wayside mirth let us not condemn
nor measure grudgingly our kindness even
to such. Every heart knoweth its own
bitterness, and we may all unconsciously,
in our thoughtlessness, have ridden rough
shod over some prostrate sufferer.

A Lesson for Lazy WItcs.
One day, a sturdy peasant was at work
in the fields amidst a severe storm and
rain, and went home in the evening thor
oughly tired out, and drenched to the
skin. He was met at the housedoor by
his loving wife, who had been at home all
"My dear." said she, "it has been rain
ing so hard that I could not fetch water,
so I have not been able to make you any
dinner. As you. are already wet through,
I shall be obliged to you to fetch me a
couple of buckets of water; you cannot
get any wetter."
The argument was striking, he there
fore took the buckets and fetched some
water from the well, which was at a con
siderable distance. On reaching his house
he found his wife comfortably seated by
the fire ; then lifting one bucket after the
other, he poured both over his kind and
"Now, wife," said he, "you are quite
as wet as I am, so you may as well fetch
water for yourself ; you can't get any
Mixing up the Babies.
The Weaverville (Cal.) Journal gives
the following account of an affair which,
however it may move the laughter of our
reader, we fancy to have made , some of
the " parties concerned "laugh on the
wrong side of their mouths:"
"Some time ago there was a dancing
party given 'up north ;' most of the ladies
present had little babies, whose noisy per
versity required too much attention to
permit the mothers to enjoy the dance. A
number of gallant young men volunteered
to watch the young ones while the parents
indulged in a 'breakdown.' No sooner
had they left the babies in charge of the
mischievous devils, than they stripped the
infants, changed their clothes, giving to
one the apparel of another. The dance
over, it was time to d home and the
mothers hurriedly each took a baby, in

An Eloquent Extract
Generation after generation, says a fine
writer, have felt as we feel, and their
lives were as active as our own.' They
passed away like a vapor, while Nature
wore the same aspect of beauty as when
her creator commanded her to be. The
heavens shall be as bright over our graves
as they are now around our paths. The
world will have the attractions for our off
springs yet unborn that she had once for
ourselves, and that she now has for our
children. Yet a little while and all this
will have happened. The throbbing heart
will be stilled, and we shall be at rest.
Our funeral will wind its way, and the
prayers will be said, and our friende will
all return, and we shall be left behind in
silence and darkness for the worm. And
it may be for a short time we shall be
spoken of, but the things of life will
creep in, and our names will soon be for
gotten. Days will continue to move on,
and laughter and song will be heard in
the room in which we died ; and the eye
that mourned for us will be dried ; and
glisten again with joy; and even our
children will cease to think of us, and
will not remember to lisp our names.
Then shall we have become, in the touch
ing language of the Psalmist, "forgotten
and clean gone out of mind."
Falling in Lotc with a Picture on a
An ardent young man in this city, says
the Springfield Republican, who fell, in
love some time since with the portrait of
a woman on a bank bill, wrote to the cash
ier of the bank to know whether it was a
fanciful picture, or "the representation of
a breathing woman." If the latter, he
was resolved to have her or die in the at
tempt. The cashier replied to him after
a few days delay, which he hoped had
not "tended unduly to aggravate the
fierceness of his disorder," thus ;
"I am unable to give you the abundant
consolation of a letter of introduction to
the original of the portrait, if it had an
original, which I am not disposed to ques
tion. My knowledge of her is quite scan
ty and unsatisfactory. The story told by
our engravers is, that she was a teacher
in the school house in New York at
the time of that cruel disaster a few years
ago, when, upon a false alarm of fire, the
children rushed down the stairway, which
gave way, causing the death of a large
number of the 'innocents.' Our heroine
is said to have saved all her pupils by that
presence of mind that shines in her face,
and to have then leaped from a third-story
window. Whether in so doing she broke
both her legs, irreparably damaged her
lovely nose, and forever dimmed one lus
trous eye, I am not told. My own belief
is that she came out unscathed and un
harmed, and at once proceeded to Bradys
who photographed her, and thus gave her
unparalleled lineaments to immortality on
a bank note. I am further inclined to the
notion that shortly thereafter she married
to the 'man of her choice,' (she never
would do anything else,) and is now the
happy mother of four 'small children and
one at the breast.' Of course you'll take
no stock in this theory of mine, and if you
are bent on further investigation, I can
only refer you to our engravers, who can
possibly put you on the track. Go in and
win, and be sure in such a happy consum
mation to ask me to be there. If it calls
me to Kamschatka I shall surely obey;
indeed, were I not sufficiently blessed in
the woman line, you would have received
no reply at all to your inquiries." &c.
