MISCELLANEOUS. Remarkable Coincidence. . The following singular circumstances are related by ft correspondent of the Lockport, (N. Y.) Courier: When I was a boy, and lived upon the pine plains of old Sheffield, Mass., I wanted to raise mo-tey to go to general training at old Canan Corners ; so I went to work in the harvest field, carrvincr ihea ves together at a York shilling a day , - . ,. . ii tu:. fr a man by the name of Allen. This Allien nua.il iuit;iiif.v.uiu timu rum wvuiu get drunk always alter dinner, and go to bed, sleep it oil, and tueu get up as cross as a bear. Well, I was on my second day', worff wnen 8aw im corainff into the field, about four o'clock i0 the after- ! 80 1 1 would b "amnion smart, ana snow uim now well 1 was money-Iran and catched I V. n .hii. tram mnn lhF.

" .nun .1? .l m so for you 11 shell out all of the rye ;M and the more he talked the more mad be trot, until finally he kicked me out of the T .1 m . . . . neia. 1 went Home to my, motner, told r of my tribulation; she consold m. by sayinff , well, my son don t cry; 1 will give you money to go to training with It wja all come right, Divine Providence 1 -it ,1,,' r, will Rve you justice in the matter. 1 cu uci uun wu uu vuugui iruvi- dence would do it, bhe Said " she could nol le . jt would not m Jjer day I A r.A It tMraft t ftsi ika ft Aam s mniUast ! h'lvit'. 1 put on a clean smrt, clean rags on my sore toe and considered myself dressed up, as usual, and went to training without a cent of money. A little after noon I saw a boy with half a card of gingerbread and a water-melon, sitting In a fence-cor ner eatine ; and stopped, and ' stood look ipg through the fence at him, with my mouth watering, lie saw me, and invit ed me over to eat witn Mm. 1 did so. He wanted to know my name, I told him and he told me his, and we went together the rest of the afternoon ' " Well, time went on ; I grew up. left die place of my nativity, ana went into business on my own account,and thought no more of the matter until twenty years had passed away, when, having business at te-iston, I was accosted one afternoon by a man long since , past the 1 prime of jife, w no looked careworn and tired, with Is your kroe V i tola him it wa ; and he ait : " I used to kuow vou when you were a boy, and knew your (ulher, too, when you wero in old Sheffield ; but now I am in tribulation ; I have had to leave there auddenly for Canada 5 I am out of money and must have a ahilling to pay my fer riage across the river." I handed him the money; he thanked me and started off. It did not seem pot. aible that he had come 10 ihat. I hailed him, and he came back to me, and I aek ed him if ho had any money to get any. thing to eat when he got across the river. " No, not a cent, was mo repiy. 1 gave him another thilling, and told him lliere waa the two shillings he cheated out of, and kicked me out of his field, when I was a boy. " Don't mention it, for God s sake, said ho bursting into tears "you hare heaped coals of fire on my head Provi dence has served me right." The prophecy of my mother flashed across my mind, as I stood looking after him, with feelings more of sorrow than ano-or. He was soon out of sight, and I never saw him mote, for he died soon after, as 1 learned, at Port Delhousie, Canada West. Two days after, 1 1 had business at Yougstown, and while wailing- for break fast, I was accosted by a middle-aged man, who asked me a few questions about the Niaeara River and the town, and whether there wa any conveyance to Fort Niagara. ' I told him that as soon as breakfast waa over I should drive down, and he could ride with roe if he chose He did so. I found he was on some gov. emment business. We entered into conversation, durinff which he made men Hon of old Sheffield. I told him I was formerly from there, and we compared notes and found that we were the very same two boys that eat the ginger-bread and water-melon in the fence corner, in old Canan.on a eeneral training day, near ly 20 vears since. I came to the conclu. sion then, taking, my experience of the last two days into account, that there is a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them as we may." The nn sli Westward The .Fuss about ItThe Result. The constant and immense emigration from the olden States, East, North, and South, for the lust few years, seems finally have awakened great ularm in the minds of the guardians on the watchtowers of their country's best interests, and forth with the cry of bankruptcy and starvation in the Went, has boen sounded and re echoed throughout the length and breadth of the Union, from Ocean to river and from river to Ocean, from rostrum, pulpit and editorial pen. The public have been warned that the people of the west are starving, their lands fail to produce, their stock freeze in the winter; their cities and towns are becoming deserted and dilapi dated ; their lands are up to extrnvigant prices to the ruin and bankruptcy of tnope who have invested in lands or town lots. That the country is in every way overdone nd must inevitably engulph in a whirlpool of ruin all who are connected with the Western Interests, pecuniarily. Now, let us look a little deeper intolnis matter and enquire into the cause of this treat hue and cry against "going West," what are the arguments against the change of domicil from Last to V est, who are the scare crow' parties, and what their object. The newspaper press complains mat tne eastern States are becoming depopulated; that the money is all going to he West; that the high price of their lands are thus beinff depreciated; that roanuiactures are declining ; that the price of. labor is auvan cing, and that io fact their most intelligent, skillful and industrious population is thus bein? drawn oil. Now. the case is a plain one tJ us: all the real and tangible objections seem to bo simply, a view to the cood and prosperity of the country from whence emigrant are removing, whiUt little is cared for the good, the welfare, or the advancement of those whom they would deter from bettering their conditions. Capitalists and ruanu faciurers wish to profit by their labor ; mer chants and tradesmen wish to keep them for customers and consumers. Ministers require them to swell their congregations and contributions, and editors must nave subscribers at home for their papers and patronage for their advertising columns. This, then, ia the real cause of all the great bugbear atones of starvation, bank ruptcy aod ruin that has of late been re' verberated all over the country. The truth in regard to the West it quick Iv told. The prairie country was never in so flourishing, no healthful, ao hopeful, so prosperous a condition as at tuts moment. The hue and cry of interested parties against migrations here have been neard, laughed at, forgotten. Towns and cities are rapidly being reared, and wide agri cultural districts are being epeaed. Man- ! ufarmrcs an4 omme to are increasing t an eitent that surprises belief. Men of energy, sense, discretion and good judg ment, have not been effected by the great noise against the West; buthavo invested their monies, whilst the poor and laboring hare spent their strength; and the result is a vast trade; populous and busy cities and villages; numerous herds ofstockand crops of grain and vegetables, far surpass ing that of any previous year since the settlement of the country. We have lived in this far western land now about ten years in which we have felt the discom fort of two hard winters the two last With this exception, wo have a most de lightful climate. The soil is rich, produc tive and easy of cultivation as was ever turned by a plowshare ; water the most pure and abuudant; timber in reasonable supply and rapidly increasing in quantity t useful and valuable minerals; navigable rivers, and every facility for building rail roads ; and, in fact, every necessary ingre diant for one of the most prosperous coun tries on the globe. The elements of its greatneu are within itself and only re quires the arms of the steardy yeomanry, the miner, the mechanic, the artisan, the laboring man and the capitalist, to hasten and mature its development. , , , Who dare say that before two score years shall roll around, the Capitol of the Union will not loom up above the bluff's of the Missouri. It is destiny. It will be so. The poverty of Eastern lands and the nar rowness of tho country is becoming too perceptible to close one's eyes against the facts: and the great stream that divides the Ameri-an Continent, mid way, will yet boast of huge cities upon her banks, that will be central marts of commerce on this continent. Upon the amount of ground required to produce one bushel of grain ia the East, we can easily make three here. Then why will not lands in tho West bo really worth as much or more than Eaau. era lands! so soon as our rail-road is com pleted and we have a market for our pro duce, they will. Ottcenf City Orach. Mr.Oncle you speak wisely; the above are our sentiments precisely. 1 v ,..., A Family Quarrel. Our young friends who are studying that dryestofr,ll books, the English Gram mar will be interested in the following- mie muie aooui 11: , The children of the ancient individual. EnzUsk Grammar, were holding a confab one day when their father was absent. ' 1 Truly, said Jyouh, "although we are common, no one can eay that we are not proper in our conduct; while the Feri are oftener imperfect than perfect in their ideas. , "Well," said a spruce young Vtrb. "vou are certainly posiestive of tome tinvtar qualities, and there is nothing so objective ill uui iiiaiuiiici us in yuuia. Ah, ssid little Conjunction, "how you ove to quarrel! You could not live uueat a single day without me and Preposition to show your relations to each other," "Alasf exclaimed Interjection, "what strong and sudden emotions I always betray at such conversation: . ; "The politeness of all of you," spoke up Adjective and 1Jvcrb, as they gazed around with an important look "would be . comparatively nothing, without the exam ple of such persons or quaixty as we are, to tell you the time, place and manner of doing things You d not realize it. but we are a positive advantage to your "And you should conjecture, said little JlriWU, "that so small child as I could limit tht signification of all you naughty nouns ana rronouns: ine I'artutplts, 100, are forever telling of their past actions being to perfect, but we all know that all of them who are present now ere very imperfect, always ending in i-n-g iustas nothing does!" ! ' ' "bo you are having a warm little dis pute, said old English uraininar, enter, ing at this moment." I think I shall lay down about thirty rules lor you to obey. and with but a few txceplions enter, Seeing, as you do, having so many ad vantages of language, it is strange you should make such a poor use of them. I am sorry to see ao many of you improper and xrrtgutar, while you are imperfect al so, But it will always be so; a family with the best of training will make a parent more or less trouble!" r Locomotives i ths Court ay. The number of locomotives running in the Uni ted Statessays the Aturican Engineer, ia probably over 9000. The proportion of engines to length of road will average one to every three miles for while some of the western roads have but one to every j five or fix miles, many others, like the Lne, New otV Central, Baltimore . Ohio and Pennsylvania R. R.,have nearly one for every two miles. The Reading road has about three engines for every two miles. Learning makes a man fit company (cr himself as well as ethers.
