Hearts that throB witb eager gladness

Before the fire too long ; '
The cakes were scorched upon the side,
And everything was wrong 1
She srorneJ to wait all night for one
Who lingered on his way,
And so she t.ok her tea alone,
And cleared the things away.
He came too late ! At once he felt
The supper hmir was o'er,
Indifference in her calm smile dwelt
She closed tin pantry door 1

No di.ihes could lie see,
She m-t him, and her words were gay
She never spoke of tea ! .
Ho came too late 1 The suhstle'i bnrJs
Of patience were unbound
Not by oflence of spoken wu.'ds,

She knew he could say nothing now
That could the past repay ;
She bade him go and milk the cow,
And coldly turned away 1
He cane too late 1 Ttia fragrant steam
Of tea had long since flown,
The (lies had fallen in ths crxam,
The bread was cold as stone.
And when, with word and smile, he tried

extenaiona were not u&kcd for, and notes

ter on the Bitrfiice, the present is a seuson
of great commercial eniL.irruMf nt. Our
large iir)kcrtiiig hottars lire not doing one
fonrili of iheir usual Lusincsa, and the dif
ficulty of making collections, espetiully in
the West und fcotilh-West, is almost un
pretideiileJ. Slerchuiitt, innniifucturers'
4nd in fact all the e.niilo) ing elaases, are
rcduchig their business expenses, and the
number of clerks, shopmen, und ojieratives
thrown out of situations by this general
rvzte is very large. Of course the prices
of food, shelter, fuel and all the necessa
ries of life must eventually adjust them
selves to the pressure of the times. Al
ready provisions and coal begin to decline,
nid house rents must follow suit when
the renting season commences. Nothing
enlivening in the way of un excilemenl
has i yet broken the monotony of the cur
rent week. Just us the mercurial spirit
umonz its had worked themselves into a
fever on tte Foule ofliiir, and Young A-
merica began to "flare up" up under the
supposed insult to our national dignity,
the flame of patriotic indignation was pra
vokingly ettinguUhed by the news of
Louis Napoleon's "back down ;" ocd we
were left without a topio r-apnble.if stir

have a war' meeting on the subject when
thii Jamjar , arrive it spoiled a granj

gainst Kean, informed tlic representutive
of Richard, that the Duke of Buckingham
wos not only taken, but thai his head had
been cut off.

The "latest footings" of the returns for
Governor, no longer excite any interest,
it being universally concluded that Major
II. Clark is the Governor elect; and a cold
water majority in the assembly being also
fixed fact, the Ihiuor dealers and Iiq,Jor
drinkers are mournfully speculating on
their prospects under Ihe coming dispen
sation. Manager Hacked, tries the experiment
nf n forenoon opera, at the Academy of
Music, to-day. It will he a failure. Paint
and tinsel won't do by dny-light, and th
notes of the nightingales are out of nlaea
in ine morning.
The Knickerbocker Gallery, the first
Rift book of the senson, is to be published
to-day. This book, as I suppose you are
vare consists of original articles bye
large number of distinguished American
writers; and is fo be embellished wi'h the
portrait of forty of the contributors. It
is one of the most ingenious dodges in the
benefit way that I remember to have heard
of, and does honor to the cuteness of
brother Chirk, who I believe is a Yankee
from the Granite Slate.
The proceeds are to be expended in the
purchase of a farm for the Editoi of Ihe
Knickerbocker, and the way in which he
has tickled up the literntti and roped them
into that scheme, is really masterly. The
volume will, however, be a gem, and well
worth the price five dollurs. Next to Bar
num's Auto-Biography, it will be the great
hit of (he season.
Bennet, of the Herald, will probably
have to pny the .$10,000 awarded by a
jury, to Mr. Fry, formerly f ma nnger of
tlic Italian Opera, here, for editorial libels
upon ii ; eliarfer, published in IhnV p
per. The Superior Court has denied the
motion for a new trial. The -;se miv
probably be sent up to the Court or Ap
peals, but I apprehend nothing would
be gained by such a proceeding except
One of the "Twelve Apostles" of the
"latlcr day saints," iiumod John Tyler, is

Another of these fashion. 'lie robberies,
probably th signaled as "defalcal ions;"' has
just ucciiMcd in this city. Mr. Candee
first teller nf the American Exchange
Lkiiik has, it appears, been using ihe funds
of the institution for some years past, in
real estate, speculations, lie lived like a
noble, kept fast horses, and all that sort of
thing. The directors and the officer of
the bank, seem to have been taking a Rip
Yunwiiiklc nap w hi!c the w) olesale rob
bery was going on. The defect is said to
be 138 000. Il is reporW that since
the detection of the fraud, Mr. Caiidee
has secured (he bank against all loss.
The en pit id of tlus concern is ."il. 000,000.
No investigation touching the conduct
of the cfliecrs and crew of the New
has yet been set on foot.

Bahiinore Sun gives the following phas

The revenue of the Post-Office Depart

A Herculean, and at the Same lime, most

Kldi r. The Cleveland Plain Dealer has
a letter fr.ra James McKuight, a Mormon
Elder; with two wives, in which he de
fends polygamy, and says
'Our young ladies, accomplished and
beautiful, often choose a man with en, or
twenty wives in preference to an attrac
tive young gentleman who has nut one;
thus showing their good taste, and regird
for and experience. If one of your
most polite, fashionable, and fascinating
young gentlemen should come here, he
would find it very difficult to get a wife,
and if he succeeded at all, she would in
all probability be. one whom our gray
lu il and infirm old men would refuse."
He also con'emls that their is more hu
manity unions; the Mormons in the
family of a man who has ten wives, than
in the mass of families else-where, where
one wife presides mistress of the house,
husband and children. This is attributed
io the fact, that in the Mormon belief
' the husband is the head of the wife
and her Lord and Saviour, and unless she
is obedient and submissive to him, she
cannot be saved." lie says further:
" There are instances of from six to ten
wives habiting one dwelling, and living
amicably ; though for the most part each
wife has her own house, and rules her
children. The children ure under the
mother's cure until ther arrive ut maturity,

There is more of the same pre
tensions and degrading sophistry with
which these miserable polygamists at

their salacious theories to the world.
(lowers ito.i a Mother's Gravf.
Four motherless little children ! Who
can think of tiiem without a saddened
heart ' Ti ne, they su e too young to know
how great is their loss ; but uh ! now.
Who will talk to them of Jesus? Who w ill
tench them to lisp his name ? Who will
teuch tin in to be Christians early ? The
father's business calls him uwny during
thtir waking fours. When lie pomes
home, sleep hangg heavy upon their eye
lids. . Ho on pray tcr thorn, end i0in
timos wiili them. But, uh I a mother's
cure und influence ure buried with her in
the grave.
Not long since there were f- ir such
little ones. Their mother had been bourne
to the sunny hind of flowers, that she
might catch again the bloom that had faded
from her check. Hut it came not ami
there unong strangers she died. Hcrsoul
went to ths! spirit land, and her body was
brought to rest amot.g its kindred. Two
of the little ones went to the tomb, with
those who bore their mother's precious
form. As ihey tMisscd the gruve, and
looked down deep into it, each one cast
some ilowers upon the coffin lid. It was
a.swect sight a pretty tribute to the mem
ory of a mother all they could do now to
tell of tlieir deep affection.
Young readers, does your mother still
live? How should jou cherish her af
fections and treasure her words H She
may tlie. men jou wilt loci that you
have never done enough for her; never
obeyed her us you ought; never loved her
half enough. Try to be more earnest in
your attentions towards her. Then, should
you come to cast flowers into her tomb
no tears of regret w ill f.dl upon them.

We hcrd a prelly little inoi lent the

A younlaly from the Soj'.h, it seems,

however, w'icn, by an unfurl un ile invest

just as he was about to claim his bride
What docs he dj? Why like an honora

every particular of the unVappy t-n
which has taken place in his fortunes, as
suring her that if the fact produced any
change in her feeling towards him, she
's released from every paotnisc she has
made him. And what docs the dear good
girl do ? Why, she takes a lump of pure
gold, her lover had sent her in his pros
perity us a kerpsake. and having it manu
factured into a ring, forwards it to him,
with the following Bible inscription en
graved in distinct characters on the out
side :
" Entreat me not to leave thee, or to re
turn from following after thee; for wither
thou gocst will I go, and whither thou
lo'lgcst wiil I !o Ige; thy people will be my
people, and thy God my God; where thou
diest will I die; ui.d there w ill I be btried;
the Lord do so to me, and more also, if

The lover idolized his sweetheart more
than ever, wheu lie received this precious
evidence of her devotion to him both in

light for the soul to have adust in the
faith of another. It makes' a pillow of

Push. Push along. It's the way your
sound and hear'y mortals do. And 'you
can't do without it. The world is -so
made, society so constructed, that it is a
law of necessi'y thut you must push.
That is, if you would bo thought some
thing und somebody.
Push along. Tush a strong push and
perjetual push. All see the power in it.
See how i; gains, accumulates, whether of
wisdom or wealth. We never knew a
man who was a right smart pusher who
finally did not become rich, respectable,
wise, and useful. The fact is, yon are
morally sure to become so if you push

If things look dark, push the harder;
sunshine und blue sky are just beyond;
If you are entangled, push if your heart
grows feeble, push. You'll come out vic

Among other things to be desir are
the following : A method to make truth as
agreeable as falsehood; a receipt for prais

debt without having to earn the money u
second time in the attempt; how to in
duce a 'constant reader' of a newspaper to
become constant subscriber; a plan oi
